I expect the town council to consult
their own attorney, and when -o in

In regard to what my friend says
Ut legal advice being an "uncertain
the legal advice give his ' friend a
zealous banker," by his legal adviser,
with respect to the necessity of protebt- b)
ing a note in order to hold the en- n
dorsers liable and the payment of pro- Y
test fees, I suppose my friend had [l
some object in inserting what purports a
to be the experience of a mmnager of a i
bank with his legal advisers; but to me, w
it set me, it is not at all germane to thbe ilt
question under discussion. But what- 01
ever -ting may lurk in it, is very ce
easily extracted, and whatever covert"
purpose may underlie it, is rendered a'
perfectly harumless, by a correct state- U
>ment of the law. Our courts in this
State, whenever the question was
made, have always decided that it is
not necessary to protest an inland J
bill of exchange or promissory note,
made and endorsed by parties living
in the State, but if a note is made by a
- person residing in one State and
payable to a person residing in another
State, it is considered a foreign bill of
exchange and protest is absolutely I
necessary. But it has always been the
custom of the banks in this State as
far back as my knowledge extend,, to
protest all notes, whether classed as ha
Inland bills or foreign bills, and to m
-charge protest fees, and whenever BI
notes which were protested have been
placed in my bands fir collection, I
have atways collected the protest fees of
as well as the principal and interest trc
Ane on the notes. While the courts
have held as above stated, with re
gard to protest of note., they have al- dm.
ways insisted on proof of the present- -
ulent ofta note to the maker, at maturi- A

If the toewn of Winnsboro should
issue $50,000 of 5 per cent bonds, as
proposed by my friend, it would have
to pay not only $2,500, interest each
year, but an additional amount of
$1,250, if they be 40;yu bonjda, for a
sinking fund to pay the principal wvhen
due, as required by Section 7, Article
VIII of the Constitution of the State.
The amount raise'd by the taxes now
Jevied by tbe town council amount to
$2,500. To pav~the interest and pro
vide a sinking fund for the payment of
the proposed issue of bonds at their
maturity won Id require a t ax sufficient
to raise $6,250 per annum, an in
crease of 150 per cent.
