Kcllering the Aet Unconatltntionnl.
Editor Daily Timks: A few days
ago ono of your reporters requested
me to give my views in reference to
the act of the Legislature, which re
quires the taxes of 18!i(> to be levied
upon the real estate assessment of
188."i instead of the new assessment,
and particularly what effect it would
have on the prospects of the early
completion <>f the Roanoke and
Southern railroad. I state now, as I
stated then, I do not think the act
will affect in any appreciable degree
the fortuues of the railroad. The
council can issue the bonds to the
road upon the assessment now being
completed without reference to the
question whether citv and State
taxes should bo extended upon the
basis of the old or new assessment, it
is only to be remembered that the
Issuing of the bonds of the city for
the beiudit of the road, and the levy
of n tax to pay interest upon them,
are altogether different, and as the
interest when it falls due will un?
doubtedly be paid, and as the road
will use the bonds by selling them in
the market. I do not see that the act
in question can materially effect the
early construction of the road.
This act does, however, have a seri?
ous bearing on the city finances in
other respects, as the amount which
will be reali/.ed under tin-old assess?
ment will probably be $50,000 less this
year than if the taxes were extended
under the new assessment. This is a
gain to the individual taxpayer, but is
si loss to the city at a time when the
money will be much needed. Since
my attention was called to the matter
by your reporter, I have given it some
jonsideration and 1 am constrained
to the opinion that the act i.- uncon?
stitutional and therefore void. See
tion 1, article X. of the constitution
provides as follows:
' Taxation, except as hereinafter
provided, whether imposed by the
State, county or corporate bodies,
shall be equal and uniform, ami all
property, both real and personal,
shall be taxed in proportion to it:
value, to be ascertained as prescribed
by law."
"Section ft of the same article pro?
vides as follows:
Section C. "The general assembly
mall provide for a re-assessinenl of
the real estate of t iii> Stale in I te
year I860 oras soon thereafter as prac
ticable, and every fifth year ibere?
ifter: provides, In making such as?
sessment no levies shall be a--'? tl
above or below its value."
The clear scope and meaning ol
these two sections can not be nits
taken. They mean thai a re tsse -
iuent shall be made every live yean
:md that taxation must be upon flu
basis of such assessment. The prac?
tical operation of the act in qttf'Sli ui
ig to ignore the provision of tin cou
stitution and for the year of 1800 to
usses.s taxes upon the basis of 1885,
thus levying faxes for six years upon
the assessment of 1885. Both sections
?ire mandatory. The legislature has
uo right to ignore one and
thus render both of do effect.
Why make the assessment if
taxes are not to be laid in accord?
ance with the valuation thus ascer?
tained. If the effect of the re-assess?
ment can be postponed for one year
why can it not be done for two. or
three, or five, at the will of the General
Assembly, and thus taxes be continued
for ten years upon one valuation.
We are informed that the purpose
of the General Assembly was to pre?
vent a falling of the revenues in the
event there should be a falling off in
the assessments. If such was the pur?
pose it was in direct conflict with the
constitution; but whether the act was
passed with that purpose or not the
effect would be the same. Let us sup?
pose that the lands in the eastern part
of the State and generallyjin the agri?
cultural sections, have decreased
in value and that there has
been an increase in the min?
eral sections and in the
cities and towns, the result would be
that a large class of onr citizens are
paying more than they would, and
certain other classes are paying le>s.
What becomes of the provision of the
constitution that all taxation shall be
equal and uniform, and that property
shall be taxed according to *'ts value ?
It seems tome that the matter should
at once be brought before the courts
by a test case, and the constitution?
ality of the act be determined deli
nitely, and the injurious consequences
if possible, avoided.

spectacled young students who looked
as if they worked too hard. But all

laughter filled the cars.

Below is given a detailed report of the
exercises at the institutions:

promise to be very interesting and
instructive.

PRESS POINTERS.
Abingdon Virginian: The practical
effect of the recent decision of the
United States supreme court in the
coupon cases is, that the liquor license
tax ($1)00,000) must be paid in money,
while the tax on other licenses can be
paid in coupons,which sell at 20cents.
Is anybody so foolish as to suppose
the liquor men will submit to this
discrimination against them ? Not
much.
Courier Journal: The Southern!
soldier can do without a pension, and [
can also contribute t-omcthing for
monument to General Grant. He'sl
all right.
New York Herald : It is the age of j
young men. Events move more rap?
idly than ever before; new"inven-|
Hons, new discoveries, new ideas, new
arrangements and complications arise
day by day to put old devices to
nought, and confound the stale strate
gems of ancient statesmanship.
Philadelphia Press : As we survey
the increasing Democratic vote in!
Iowa in the last ten or fifteen years
Mr. Clarkson knows the figures?it
strikes us that the Democrats kept up
a tolerably fair interest in politics
without a show at the oGices. They
did everywhere.
New York Sun: An improved bron
tometer which indicates "the instant
of each lightning Hash and the begin?
ning and duration of a thunderclap'
is on exhibition in London. In ta<
interest of science, we hope that a few |
brontometers will be imported before
the fall campaign begins in Michigan
and Kansas.
Norfolk Virginian: When Post?
master-General Wanainaker took Mr.
McKeau, of Philadelphia, to the
White House on Saturday, and the]
two presented Mrs. Harrison with the]
leed of a cottage at Cape May in be?
half of some unknown admirers, it is
stilted that "Mrs. Harrison was over?
come by surprise." This feeling w 11
be shared by a large part of the Amer?
ican people. It is mutual. The ac?
ceptance of gifts from citizens by the I
person holding the oilice of President
of the United State*, has always bet u [
held to be indelicate, and, as the Bos?
ton Post remarks, it does not relieve
the situation, but rather causes eui-|
barrnssment, if the gift is made indi?
rectly through the wife of the Presi-i
dent. _._
Social and Personal.
Mr. B. G. Hughes, of Lynchburg, a

Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Poteet take th;s|

assure them that the remembrance of I
the same will last as long as life.
The Vinton Baseball Club, it

who was arrested yesterday for steal?

Speaker Read's Stern Condition.
There was great hilarity in the]
House this afternoon when Mr.
Walker, of Massachusetts, becoming]
excited in the midst of his silver
speech, peeled off his coat and threw
it on the chair behind him. About
that time Congressman Frank strolled
up to the Speaker's desk and asked
Mr. Reed if he cbuld have a little time
to talk on silver. The Speaker turned j
from his silent and severe conteinpla-j
tion of Mr. Walker's undignified ap?
pearance, and said:
"You can have some time, Mr. Frank
?that is, upon a condition."
"All right," replied Mr. Frank.
"What is the condition?1'
"You must promise nie," ssid tin
Speaker, in his most solemn manner
"that you will keep your trousers on."
