NEWBERRY, S. C,
THE RAILROAD TAX CASES.
The tax cases are still not ended. It
is a very important matter.
If a railroad is to determine what is
a just valuation of its property, and
can say it will not pay its taxes and
resist the same by going into the
courts, every other property owner
ought to be entitled to the same priv
ilege, and the government might be
placed in a very bad plight, if such a
thing should happen.
Judges Goff and Simonton say that
the right of the State to levy and col
lect its taxes is paramount and sover
eign, provided it is a legal and lawful
tax. But then who is to determine
whether the tax is legal and lawful
except it be the powers that the State
delegates to levy and collect this tax?
On tL:e other hand, this power to
tax might through prejudice or other
cause increase the assessments until it
was arbitrary and unjust, and to make
the property holder in such cases pay
his taxes and sue the State would cer
tainly put him at a disadvantage and
might work a great hardship.
People generally understand that
taxes is one thing that is certain and
must be paid, and it is well for the
stability of our institutions that they
should - continue to view it in that
light. Otherwise we %ill continue to
have no end of trouble and litigation.
The Herald and News does not pre
tend to know the law, but we wish
very much that the railroads had paid
their taxes and then undertook to re
cover, Ps the E tate law provides. But
if they have the right to go into the
United States Court we do not blame
them, for every one else would have
done the same under the same circum
stances. We all like to have the ad
vantage in anything we undertake,
and they say possession is nine points
- But to restrict the right of a sover
eign State in. the exercise of this right
to collect its tax- is a dangerous pre
cedent, it seew to us, to say the least.
But we hope the matter will be set
tled on the merits at issue and that the
end will be reached.
WHY NOT LET IT BE HEARD ON ITS
The merits at issue in the railroad
tax cases have never yet been reached.
The question, as we understand it, :is
whether the railroad board of equaliza
Lion had the right to increase the as
sessments as they did. Why not have
that settled by the Courts, and be done
with it? Nothing can be gained by all
these contempt cases and locking of
trains ana arresting of sheriffs and
treasurers. The thing for both sides
to do is to put aside-their prejudices
and petty spites and get down to the
real merits of their cases. The people
who have the bills to foot are not inter
ested in all this fun, and it will be no
amusement to them when the bills are
to be paid. If the increased assess
ment of the railroad property is legal
and right and just, let us know it, and
-if it is not just let as know it, and that
will end the matter. When that
question is determined then the rail
roads will have to settle according to
that determination. The case has
been to the Supreme Court of the Uni
ted States once and was thrown out on
a technicality. The Court in.Charles
ton has already decided that the tax as
already increased was not a legal one
and the present decision could not have
been otherwise than as it is. If that
decision bad been reversed.by the Su
preme Court then of course the Court
in Charleston would not have inter
* ~fered. anSiotn anai
in their decision that it is a paramount
right of the State to collect its taxes,
and the fact that any property in the
hands of a receiver does not take that
right away, provided the tax is a legal
one, but having decided that this tax
was not a just and legal tax they could
not do anything else than interfere;
but even yet this decision does not
touch the merits of t.~e case. Then
why not let the case be heard on its
merits and a determination reached ?
It would be better for the State and
railroads. If the prejudice and petty
spite work on both sides could be elim
inated from this litigation a settlement
could sooner be reached..
A SAD CASE.
The statement was made a few weeks
since that a minister and his wife
were starved into insanity. They were
taken to the asylum. The statement
was made by a brother of the unfor
tunate man. The presiding eider of
the circuit and one or two other gen
tlemen have written to the effect that
it is a mistake: that the insane condi
- - tion was not the result of want, as they
had a plentiful supply of necessary
comforts. The brother replies, assert
ing that his statement is true.
It is a sad case. Here are gentlemen
of equal credence on both sides. We
only know that tbere is a great deal of
nervous prostration, and even insanity,
as a result of the spirit of the times in
which we live.
- TIE CITY OF THE CONGAREE.
Our beautiful capital city is going
right off on a grand boom. She is
to have a free bridge over the rivgr, an
electric railway, a four-story, thirty
thousand spindle factory, a big bank
full of money to do marvelous things
for the cotton crop: the women's in
dustrial college, perhaps, and last,
though not least of all; a thoroughly
equipped hospital. The ladies inau
gurated this latter desideratum and
the gentlemen have aided them in its
organization. It is to have private
rooms as well as public wards, and an
appeal is made to the charitable for
contributions. It will be a worthy

SHERIFF W. W. RISER.
The only anti-Tillman sheriff wh4
was arrested in the Railroad Tax Case

at this writing he is the only one whi
is left in Charleston.
Sheriff Nance, of Abbeville, under

people. And Mr. Cleveland will bi

one of those kind of men who will d<
what he thinks is right and best for thi
country regardless of opposition, popu

thinking and seems to have a will o

is that he makes but few mistakes.
The campaign in which he was
elected was clean and dignified and
free from mudslinging except some
futile attempts of some small politician!
to class him as a tool of Wall Street and
the money kings.
Mr. Cleveland is a great man and
will be President of.this whole country,
anid will demonstrate beyond peradven

or set of men. He is not a policy man.
All the editorial and local mattel
furnished for this issue of The Herald

Monday night in the office of thi
G. C. & N. R. R. at Clinton, whili
waiting for the 1.35 a. m. train for the
North. The editor hopes to be homi
again by Wednesday, or by Thursday
at the latest.
The young gentlemen in this railroad
office have treated us very kindly-fur
nishing pen,ink and fire, for all of whici
we return our thanks, but we have en
gaged in more pleasant performances
than waiting for such an early morn
ir - train. Whether the "stuff". reaches
the office in safety or not depends or
the kindness of Capt. George Bishop.
The State of Sunday published a ri
mor that there was a possibility of at

Herald and News does not believe there

fund may be getting low, but an appro

Legistlature to pay Messrs. Jones and
Lord, the counsel for the State in the
railroad cases, and no doubt they car
manage to get along on that until thi

d [News and Courier, 19th.]
There was a new phase of the rail
n road tax suit yesterday, and it was
. furnished by Mr. F. W. R. Nance, the;
genial and good-natured sheriff of the
glorious county of Abbeville.
d Early yrsterday morning Sheriff
ir Nance went to the United States Court

whom he made a clean breast of it all,
saying that he loved the Union and
11 honored the State, 1-ut he revered his
:e oath of office more than all else. He
d had seized an engine and no cars. He,
had allowed the railroad agent to re
main in care of the locomotive. He had
ig carried out his duty as he conceived it
1. and meant no disrespect to the honor
able Court. So Judge Si:nonton issued
the following order:
a F. W. R. Nance, Erq., sheriff of
- Abbeville County, having come before
n the Court in his proper person, and
d having stated in detail his action col
nected with the levy in this case and it
' appearing from this statement that he
y in fact made a levy on i locomotive
r- only, and did not attach any other pro
.e perty; that he made no obstacle what
ever to the delivery of freight on the
ie train to which the locomotive was
>e attached, nor to the use of the locomo
tive in changing cars for this purpose;
that he permitted an agent of the rail
road company to reman in care of the
e locomotive; and that all that he did
was in full belief that it was his duty as
sheriff, and in his honest construction
,n of the order of this Court, and not in
a contempt or defiance thereof, which;he
It is ordered, that Le has thus purged

ie A copy of the order was furnished
ie Sheriff Nance and he went on his way
1e rejoicing, comforting himself with the
fond delusion that he was a free man
once more and just $500 richer than he
'n had been since last Thursday.
ar But when heshowed it to counsel for
a the State he was advised to go back
and have it explained, and when he
did so his joy changed to disappoint
n ment, for Clerk Hagood informed him
to that he could go and come as he pleased,
butjudgment for$300 stood against him
all the same. At first the sheriff waxed
very wroth and wanted to retract his
se apology to the Court, but be thought
o better of it and took the afternoon train
r for Columbia.

when asked about it, said that the

Has had an active and success
ful experience of over 42 years.
It is sound and reliable in all
that these words imply. It is
strong in assets, in surplus, in
a large and well-selected busi
ness, in a large capital stock;
strong in its organization, its
plans, its principles, and in
the esteem of its policy-hold
ers. It is cheap only in the
sense that it furnishes the best
security for the least money.
