THE Pit LSI DEN PS HESS^UJK.
President IfayCs bus soul inn long
message to Congress the burden ol'
which is, the elections in the South.
Mr. Hayes thinks thai these elections
have been unfair, and need investigti
tioh, and doubtless wishes that the
Democratic members of Congress
from this section should not receive
or rctaiu their scats. It seems im
possible Ibl men to look at and deal
?withothers as they would themselves;
If the people of the North were
placed in the same positioilrahai we
are, and had the same politieiri pro
blem to grapple with, would theyoj^
.any better than we do: Wo would/
like to .-ee the !aldes I.:;rued for i\
short time merely for the experiment.
We would see then if they would
practice so devoutly what they art
now preaching. It is very good to
stand offal a distance in sal'.- and Soft
places and talk morality and religion
to us; but to practice it. when sub
jected to the trial, is what proves the
man. ? We are rather inclined to
think that human nature is not much
different t he world over.
We all want fair elections ami we
will have them too if left alone and
given time to work out our political
problem. The subject is now engag
ing the minds of all our leading men.
Elections mitsl be fair, and at the
same time our civilization must be
maintained. If tin blind partisan
ship and fanatical legit lation of the
North is to ruin the South, we'would
ask in preference to be treated as a
conquered subject and be given mili
tary rule. This is better than Radi
cal plundering to which the fore
shadowed narrow national policy
There are other parts of the mes
sage which are worthy and we hope
will receive attention. The recom
mendation for national aid in educa
tion in the -tali-, is very proper.
The state appropriations are inade
quate to the purpose, and we lope
that this sein me will be carried out.
TAXING DE UTS AS PROPERTY.
A correspondent iff the''News und
Courier" brings to the attention of
that paper that, under the existing
law s. ta\? .-. are paid 1 wicc on I he same
piece of property h\ the system of
taxing die property and then the
bond and mortgage given for the
same property, if it is sohl.
For instance, if Mr. A. has $1000
surplus money lie pay- a lax upon it.
and if that mouca\ i> safely invested,
lie also pays n lax upon it. If Mr.
I>. borrows that $1000 and pay for
a tract of laud, he pays taxes on the
land, while a lax is also pni Ion the
mortgage, so that the ante piece of
property is paying lite Slate twice.
This is a dillietilt question oftaxa
lion which affects other Stales be
sides Si'iith Carolina; but it certain
ly ought lib! t(i be us i; is, und we call

person who holds and h ad-., not the
person who receives anil owe shall

m^ln some circles a question has
arisen as to Urn practical ftprljings
and benefits of the Dimer law as it
now stands in our State,and the at
tention of the Legislature is invited
to the mat lor. Ah the law now stands
the w idow is entitled to dower iu all'
lands alienated by her Khsband dur
ing the coverture in which she has
not formerly relinquished her right.
As a consequence of this in tl e sale
of all lands by a married man bis
wile's rcliiiquishriicut of dower must
bo taken before a magistrate at great
inconvenience and the additional ex
pense of I wo dollars.
The arguments urged against the
present law are, thai it increases the
cost of examining I itles; that it cam >
great inconvenience in all transfer*;
of property, that it works iiimnon
and unjustly to all pin< low;.-; wt j
lose by it one-tbirci oh one sixth/1 J

present t he matter for the considera

A lively discussion sprung up in
the Legislature OU a bill introtlliced
to limit the fees of lawyers. The leg
al members of the House rushed to
the rescue with considerablealheri
It w as urged by the projectors and
supporters of the bill thai lawyers
fees were often ruinous, and in many
eases consumed the whole td" the
estates to be settled. Mr. Ward,the
father of t lie bill, cited eases in Edge
field in which estates were almost en
tirely consumed by the cost of settl
ing them. Mr. Harber said that
costs were now so high that, although
he was a guardian for three estate.-,
he would not settle them, because he
knows they"wouldSbo absorbed by the
.*M tijer Mel 'rady, < 'td. Simontoti and
others opposed the bill. The forpuo'
said thai me eliefifer litigation was
made the more then- would be id' it.
and therefore he favored the toe bill
as it \\:is. Col. Siliioutoii took the
same ground. Ho though! the pas
sag?- of the bill would open the door
to useless litigal ion. j
After a hoi lighl the bill was kilhd
by a vote of 7:! to 43, and the law
ycrs fee bill stands as it is. unscathed
by the assault.
