A LIVE QUILS1'ION.
A very live question, thI at, of
State aid to coultics, in pavingo, oil
honded railroad debts, is being :lg
itated ill certain portions of our
State. t is a Subject which shouhl
:Ilddress itself to every intelligelt
voter of the country. It is4 oie of
interes't to the poor as Well as to
I he rich, It affects the interests
o1 each, il as ntich as the Poor11
manl is Subject to taxation a. well
as the wealthv. In our own coun
tv the sIbIject is of the greatest
imlpor'tance. P icekenls is burdfl ened(
mOIe' heavily.than an1Y other coiun
ty in the State in the w y o f ta xes.
WTe feel thatr oui'pople., b a po)-11
bir' vote, would readily necept t he
a id, that the State might give it, in
pay mient of the great railroad deht
which is hanging over the county.
WXe claim that 4aid is 1more especi
ally' duie us. Thei( Air LineC Ro0ad
wa.s huilt at a timie, whleni ou1r p
pie was not alive t~o the subject,.
and~ when only ai parltial voice ce
preCssed itself, ini vot inrg the sub
Seiption of a hunldr'ed thiousan~d
(loll ars to its construction. It was
niot pla(cd upjonl the r'oute, that the
i nter'estedl peopleC, ge'nera lly, wanft
ed it. It is trute we brought the
debht upon1 our'selves, but the cir'
cumstances surroundling it should
in a measure excuse us. A4s for
our p)art we would not take twice
the cost of the road for it, and be
without one; but then we might as
wvell be relieved, in a measure, of
t his great burden as the people of
C olumbllia ar'e blessedl with a State
appropriationi for a canal.
We pay a railroad tax of' 8 mills.
Our County Conmmissioners hope
that in the course of ten years,
with the present rate of taxation,
to pay off the entire railroad debt.
Now the Air Line road pays a tax
to the State of 5) millA. Is it ask
ing too much of the State to re
wi not go so far as to ask the
State to give us the taxes which
Charleston, ('o111m bi- or' evI
G reenville pays. in.,eder that oi;"
great. ddht might he liqited
but we do ask it to refund th iis
the aMount of taxes whithi Air
Lilne Road pays in P'ickens ('ounl
ty. It, would, in our opinion, be a
w ise step if the G eSneral A (s bIly,
voul1d enaet such a law as this.
Refund to suchi counties as are
buirdened with railroad debts, the
