WE made a misstatement several
days ago in saying that the homestead
law remains very much like it did be
fore. As it proposes new the home
stead can never be mortgaged or use1
as collatteral in any shape or f"-rm
We question if this will meet t Le pub
li: approval. In so ne ca-es i: i-iv b.
well, but all that can tver be dout
with land so fixed is to farm it. Should
a man wish to secure advances ii
money or ?upplies it is absolutely iz
1-s- a- a resource.

very little consideration to the rea
purpose of the occasion. Sume thinl
tbat they had '.uch a hard time" tha
really they have nothing to be thank
ful for. The c,ndition of our count
to-day is, to a far-reaching extent
better than it has been for many years
There is more hogs and corn in Fair
field now than there have been in mani
years. Cotton is worth about tVice a
much as it was in 1891, and the negroe
have more money than they have hai
in a long time. In fact the laborer ha
been rewarded for his servc. s and al
sh)ould be thankful and provident witi
the fruits of their labor.

The poor people of thss country are
being oppressect more and more every

that $200 has more rig bt to vote than a

going entirely too far.
'.(AX4ATION FOR PliBLICI.EOABS.
Mr. Editor: I,was g:ad tg sea a dis
position ofi"the part~of some of the
representatives in 'the recent road
congress to levy and.collect a sufficient
tax to work t,e public rpads. I know
it lies been truly said, that our taes.,
both state and county, ar.e teryM high
But I think I. can fully depist;rate
to an.y perspn of rea-on. and- intelli
genc.e why our p.ublic roads should be
kept up by taxation.
Ik now that any system of taxa tion,
however little may be the levy, or,
however just and equitable may be
the system, falls heavily upon t-ae
minds of some people and thete%
fail8 to meet the approfaj or al', :sti
zer.s and taxpayers.
To demonstrate clearly, l* e take
a glance at the origiary. -' tention of
taxation, and lamn coddtabe prr,po
sition herein presgad cdi 'wej .afford
to undergo the- swebJighi fsrtn
In mIy opinofh tr Wt.easure of
tax.ation is. this.:: Th -every man
should pay tod. tesng-por. of his
governmnt onnt.yA Stat.e and natio
nal,. at roportsi to his abidity to
I.d'o not. belive iin a'u system that
lev.es e-ud co4lects a La:: fr&m one class
of people anti at. the same time iets
another go ct. tree. It is not my
ineidionl to make any"~ unjiest discrimi
nia:ioni between the taxoayers andi
voting population of any' county. I
Lelieve the present r oad law ougiht to
be repealed, and thr.n leave ir. opai>nal
with thec voters to say by 'S popular
vote whett.er 'we vwill levy a~mi c>)llect
a tax f.or the improvement of -the pu-b
l ndcrhig eay.re.n 'tmi po
man is compelled to pay his $2, work
the roads six days, or go to the chain
gang, while his more fortunate fellow
man, who is over fifty years old, o ns
one thousand acre of land or more,
owns twelve or fitteen head of horses
and several vehicles, and consequently
uses the roads a greatdeal more than
his poor neighbor, thus you see often
the man or men who pay the tax or
work the roads use them very little.
I believe it one class of citizens are
taxed all ought to be taxed atike, in
proportion to their ability to pay and
in proportion to the benefits they re
ceive from the taxation, regardless of
age. I believe the uian who owns ten
thousand dollars worth of property
ought to pay ten times as much as the
man who owns one thousand dollars
I do not see any injustice in this
proposition. If the roads were kept
up by taxation and let out by con
tracts, the poor man who is now com
pelled to pay hiS $2 or work the six
days could then hire to the contractor
and make fifty or seventy-five cents
per day and by one week's work make
three or four dollars, where he now
has to pay two dollars. Perhaps some
will say we are oblidged to tax the
common livers or require them to
work the maximum number of days in
order to get the negroes' labor or re
quire him to pay the tax. Let me say
here without evasion or subterfuge
that if we have got to tax or compel
the poor people to comply with the
law in order to compel the negro to
pay the tax or work the full number
of days, it then behooves our law
makers when the legislature meets to
repeal the obnoxiour law and submit
the matter to the people of the re
spective counties to say h,w they will
dispose of the question. I be!:eve one
mill or a mill ax I a half ought to be
levied and c >llected c.n all personal
property and re.il esta e and also
twenty or fif y ceir s per capita if
iecessar. In th:it way every man
would tien pay in proportion to his
ability to pay and in proportion to the
amount he uses the roads.
There are some men in this county
who it they had been taken from their
work in July or August and compelled
to work six days on the roads their
families would have been almost
without a morsel of food.
I trust that I have been Explicit on
this subject. It the matter could be
sabmnitted to the voters of the different
counties for their approval or disap
proval. if in that event if our county
should vote no tax, then I would
acquiesce in the result, for I believe in
the majority ruling.
I repeat again, that if we are to be
taxed let it rest equally on all and not
discriminate against any one class.
Being actuated by a patriotic impulse,
I shall advocate in a bold antj fearless
manner that which I believe just and
i ight and which will give equal and
exact justice to all. If the poor marn
hid an opportunity ta vote on the
question and then they were compelled
to pay a capitatiot tax of two dollars
they.would have no ezcuse to comn
plain. But as it is lhe feels I at l.e is
being taxed without repre-entationx.
[he working classes who spend
: heir entire income in the support of
themselves and families are tr?e most
< ppressed of all men under the present
Col. Robt. G. Ingersol said of Abra
hamn Lincoln, 'SClothed with almost
absolute power he never used it ex
ept on the side of mercy." Would
to God that all men in o0icial station
were imbued with the same principles
of equity and justice.
I regret to see that so many of our
p:-ople do not manifest the interest in
this and similar questions that they
ought to. I regret so many do not
realize the gravity of the situation. I
hope the day is* not far distant when
every chiildt of this country will be
Pborn to the possibilities of a life of
culture ancA rexinemnent and not be
doomed from bir-.h to a life of mending
toil, poverty and ignorroce. Mr.
E.ditor, I hesited to discuss this im
portant theme, thinking that others
far more experienced than myself
woutld contribute somethirg on this
important subject; but I feel that IL
is the duty of every man on proper
occasions to do something, say some
thing, or suff'er something for the
welfare of people. I am yours truly,
Robt. R. Jeff'ares. -
