MtanwhIll tiitljtt Ihe anloutltc',ment that the Prtnce of Walits It goinlg to litught*lnen on a visit to Lord Il-ainstield. iTh, visit might te set dowtt ns a mark of princely re gard, paid as It is to a milistttr who stalndst high ln royal favor, and who has tnale it his businwe*s sice he ase held olih', to court the pottritmlal favor o. his oveolteIhu; to alnglout, also, let it be added, the personal authority of the sovereign. But the rumor alleges anotlher ritscni for the 'trinco's visit at this moment. It is not to te merely it manlifestation of esteem and likin.r, as was the mornlng call paid by the Quotvn a year r tr two ago tot er faithful hi-nchman. The Prince is going, says his own friends, to discluss with Lord Beacontiih an lncrtase otf his allowance. Thbi actual occtupant of the throne an-I hulrappartnt are so seldom Il agreemen+t that It htis hlerotofore been under st til that the tl'rnet did not share the uieen's attachments to the Prmuttlr. The IPrncewason gm.a twtrtuswith Lotrd lBtaconis tll'ld as he is with almost everyLtadly; but nothling more. Why should he go to llugh enden? Why should not Lord hliat onslstld gt to Sandringhamn or look In quietly some tay at Marlborough House, If the two wanted to chat together? (Can it be true that his Royal hlghness goes as a supplicant; and that lie waives quostlonsof etiquette In order to tconcIliate the mighty tmlulster who holds the p urse-stritgs of the State, or who has at his back an otbeditsltL majority which holds the pursi-strings? It Is an old story that the I'rince wants nlti'uy. Thet report that an application was to tbe made to P'arllament for an iLn'reise o the yearly grant has bteen heard two or three tittt e ,hfort.

It was aluht,.t alia that thi Qunen had offered to make nStaIn prtovision for him on certain con tiltions to whitch ht was not dilsposttl to as selnt. But I havi been btli by one of the Prince's household, who Is in a poeitittn to know, that his monity troubles have been greatly exaggtrated; that is debts have utev-r grown to an uinmanageabie s81t; and that he is rather straitened than distressed. This 18 connistent enough with the known fact that some of the London tratit-snen have dt-clintd propnusals to supply Marlbo rough House, resiting the temptation to ad ertuise themselves as purveyors to his Rloyal Highness on the ground that they did not tare to wait three years for their money. Anybxodv may figure as Court tralesman by paying a fee to the Chamberiain -if the house hi ,Idt; but between that and the dIgnity tf ac tual purveyor there is a diff*roenut. What I say about tradesmelt refusing this privilege. [ have the best possible authority for in at l,'ast one case. The ha-i of a large house in the West End told me that he had dtclllne|d the proposals made him. "But why?" I aektd. "Simply becaust' I ctuld not afford it," he answered.

S: and 146 is Ill entirely ortlitt lugl an enutlmtratlon of the articles or things to, bI, tiaxuil, so that soe' tlon I now guys the exi't Itlngulagtl of the present coustitutliouI. and iio it iore, and roads thIIus: T''hat for tilo c wainilar year A. I). i.sO. anld for each and 'overy stii'i,'Uling calthtltar year, there arl' hreb'y levi annuallllll taxs. artnounting in the laggtrtgait' to six mills on the dollar of the ass.essil valtiation of all property sltuated withll the, State of l oulsl antl. except sII'h as is expri'ssiy extmpteil floun taxation by lite' constitut on. 'lThs is u nde'r the "trcqtir.ielite" of ( nrtite' 211) of the constltution or lI7'l, which rtoads: "All proper ty shall tbi taxedil." ''the corr'sponntllng artltIc in the '.nstit.lu tion of l`L-3 I oentlirely, diff,'roult. It roaiis thus: "All propeirty on wu/hl'lh ftl.rrs.o SJl I' lrrild In this State,. shall Iho taxed in propr' timn to Its value. to tbe ascortaindt as directedl by law." Tihei prevision of the constitution of I5.52 not only puermittsdi the Genetral Asseanbly to sol''t tihe particular objects to bt tax'ed, hut r'quiri'd and forced an enu.ueration of thetm, as all items or things not speittically enullur ated were not taxed at all. 'Thls artici'+ was fully dltscussed in the constitut ional convien tions of of 1x68 and 1879, and tie' concluslon was the adoption of the clauses therein, which roads, in positive language, "all property shall be taxed." It has been argued that the power to select the partli'ular objeets or items of property to be taxed Is given Iy thet present constitution In article 21).: "T'he taxing power may be ex orcised by the (General Ass.tlbly for Start purposes, and by parishes and municipal cor pt'rations unlder authority granted to them by tihe General Assenmbly for parish and nml nicipal purposes." T'lihese words, "ally br." qualify only the "purposes" for whlch the general powe'r of tiaxation cn be "'oxerclisii," but If exerlrcsrts or when exorersed as t.r mitted In said article, the manner or mode of its exorclso is fixed very poalttively In the article 203, and embraces the following funda mental princlples and "reulremeonts:" First- -'T'axation shall b(' equal and uniform, not may be. 8ocond All property lthll be taxed, not all aimyi be or Rome shall be. 'I'hlrd---'The assessment of all property shall never exceed the actual cash value thereof. Fourth-The taxpayers shatll have the right of testing their aeassments before the courts of justice not may have. Fifth--in order to arrive at this tepuality and uniformity. til General Assembly shrill (unot may), at Its first session after the adop tion of this constttutlou, provhlo a system of equality and uniformity in assesstnents btailse upon the relative value of property in dlfiferont portions of the State. Sixth l'he State assessnents shall be (not may .w) the assessments for parishes, cities and towns. To sum liup the conclustlolns on this gqlt's tioin, the constltution of 18',2 reipiroi an onul ntoration ; thel cinstitutlon of Is7. obil,vilatis it by itself taxing all prIperty. Theirefore, If any ilmeimbter of the Itouse of Rtepresentatlvte thinks that all prope'rty ought not to be taxedl, andi b'll'vds that only certaln -'numeirtci'dll things oupht to tbe tax(ed, he must blnllat the c.nstiltution Itqelf and Oot attribute the ta ult to this act. 'hihi pro vision might be dlffltrenut If your coinultbta had p)repared Ia consLtltiou ; hut tile commit tee has prepare'd only a bIll "suhlj,'t to tie reulilrements of the presit,,et constltutlion," whll'l diiy not permit dlsc('retio(n. It hiiir tho laws now in force all untixemptel pr)optrty is eitiher taxed or it is not. If all is taxiil, thno this bill dows not Increase tihe qluantlty of the items of taxable property. If all Is not toxeIl, then it ought to be taxid in order to ous'y "thil reiluiremulnts of the present consstitu tton." If it comtendied that any particular thing (such as a watch or a judgment ought not til be taxedi, the only liuiriY nrfesary Is whether the watch or the jidgmtients is prop erty within the meaning f tthe constltution. Iif +'itiir Is not "property" it canni it th taxe. at all; if it is "tproperty." thte constltution r 'iarrur It to ti taxe.1; al 11n such 11(: case' its ixmption or Its sperIeal oulsitthlo (which Is thime same thing as an expre.s extmptiont woultl be unconstitutional. PJR'O'IERTY XEM IT FIROM TAXATION. In the co)nstitutIon of 1552 there is no artl clt exemptlng any proptirty from taxation, (because the Gtn,'ral AssimbtI, was given by article 123 full power to ex-mpt whatever property might ie dteemed lit for exemtnption. An enumeration of the eximptel property in the revenue bill of 1'53 was thus necesslttated in ordeir to secure its exemptitin. But the constitution of 1572 id totally different: "Arti cle 207. The fIllowing proiperty shall be ex empt from taxation, a it no oei-r."' The property so exiumpct is specifically enumeratel in that article. It does not say shall be exempltld, that is, that the revenue bill shall enact that it sfhall be exemptel, but by its own words it rendrs said property absholutely c.rerl-it. Adll itlonal ,exemptions wi lltl be uncoiubtltutionau. Threfore, in stead of enumerating the articles of prop erty "nxempt from truaxation it Is provliiii: "'E"'. 2. That the propurty namedl in ar ticle 207 of the constitutlon shall be exempt from taxation, and such exemlption shall t,, allowel only unier the, two provisions con taInmel in said articl'." ITh're is no provsion in this bill requiring exempt property to be, lietedl and valunel, hence the "sacred precincts of home" will not th invaded by the assessor. DIVISION OF THE TA.ES. The oonstitutiou of 1.2 pro-yded no lmita tion whatever to the rate to taxation, and re. quired no divislon of taxation-that Is. no hvying of a deiulute rate of taxation for a spectlle purpose. But "the requirements of the present ennetltution" are, that a definite tax for Interest on the consolidated bonds, not to exceed three mills, a deinilte tax for levees, not to exceed one vmill. a definite tax for public education, and the balance of the tax for general purposes, shall be levied and collected and shall be applied exclusively to the speclli purposes for which severally levied. The limitation of the total tax is six mills. The revenue bill of 1t55. levied a gross tax In bulk on all the property enumerated therein. Under "the requirement of the pree ent constitution." thi has been changed In the present bill to levy definite taxes for the several purposes aforesald, In the following proportions: . First-- Thhre mills for Interest on the con solldatel bonds and on the new Issue of bonds to be exchanged therefor. Second--- ne mill for levees. Third -.(lom mill for public education. Fourth--One mill for the general fund. The arguments which have been made against titl division are contradictory of each other-- unrecomellable. Vehement arguments have been made against the taxation of ill property, as required by this bill and by the constitution, on the ground that while the ratle is redlucet to six mills on the dollar, the addl tions of taxable property and valuations will rellly make thetaxation equal to thirty mills on the exietlng assessmnt rolls. If that be true., then one of two conclusions is inevitable; either: First Ouly one-third of all property in this State is now on the nae.esstuent rolls, or Sec.hdl -Wtuhtaver property is on the rolls is assesose for only one-third of Its value. If either thi a fact the sooner It is found out andI retmnlitl the better. It has been rep'atetlly, constantly a ",orm pltinlt, that real estate and the movIable propert} attached to It, arlnd ther cta,.,cptettotu· personal property, has .att nltlode to twear the antire bItlrden of taxatiton, while the wealth of the HSt;te. lit tIhe .hape of tine furlitulre, jwelst4 a.li other luxul ie, antl of ruoney s.. 'uritlis, obilgations sharel' of stocks, mort gages and other invlablle inluetments, and of tlltel'thatll'ittie, Iecttt).l entirely. liThe real ee tn.t and the taotglblo ptersonal property is oalre'ttll onl the aI sestollent rolls. If this bill will adl so largely to thitotsA r'ols., as contend eIº In argont*,nt, thi. adldition will ane he of real ets.qtrab. ntit, l it. 'tr.snorirs nott l alIt s htentf$, but mnust be of artl'les of ltxury, wealth and in ve'sttuent just mentioned. For the first time itt the history of tlt H Sate lhat a revenue bill I.een presentid for tihe taxation of those arttlcl,, and for the lirt titlte comtplaitt 18 Iuaido lialaintt such addlition on account that it will largely Inlcreasl the aggregate taxtxtion to thirty mills. If this tcortplaint weor made by tile repro sentatives of the commerci,.l or mor cantilli. assesi it would be plausible, but when madle by the representatives of the parishes, where nearly all the people are agricultural and have almtost all thtir property in the shape of real estate, mules, cattle anti veht cles, which are taxe.l already and always have been, it btecomues Incomprehensible. No man tcolll rationally contend that the rural population of Loupisana and the non-profeslonttal and non-commerclal and non-luercantile classi's in the cltles and towns are possessed1 of luxurious prop erty, intangtbli investments and the other appliances of wealth, to any considerable ex tent, mDuch lows to the extent of trebling their existing arsseesments. If it be a fact that they are so posse.ssel, then the asserted poverty of thihn people of Louislana is a myth, and the late Constitutional Convention acted tunder a gross mistake in cutting down the salaries of its oflicals so low. The truth is. and the people know It, that there was to be no considerable lncrease of as sessments In the country or elsewhere, ex cept of the property of people In good air eumstances, which has heretofore escaped taxation. Not one man in one hundred has more than $54tH worth of household'property. The hundredlth man is able to pay on the ex cess and ought to do so. l'euliar stress has been laid on the assertion that property s1 taxed twi'c,', when it has been sold on time and notes taken; first, that the land sold Is taxe'd, and. second, that the notes given for the price of it is taxed also. But the complaint was not made against taxing the land. but was urged against tax ing tihe notes. 'That is, It was not argued that the lnvolved purchase.r, striving to work out of debt, should have his land exempted or omitted from taxation, but that the holder of the notes (who, perhaps, may have bourht them at a heavy shave) should not be taxed on these notes. The case would be the same if the land were sold for cash, because then the land would be taxed and the money paid for It would also be taxed. Some of the richest men in the State have their principal capital in notes; and the people of Loutsiana certalnly would not approve a revenue bill which does not tax them. Suppose, In the case stated, both the purchaser of the land and the holder of the notes should die. Then the land would be Inventoried In the property of the purchtaser's estate, and the notes would be placedl In the Inventory of the holder's and be appraised at their actual value. It is manifest that the. land must Ihp asse8sed and taxed. There is no escape for the unfortutanate land owner. Biut whether or not the notes can bhe taxed, It must be Inqulired, Are they property? If not thtey canuot be taxed at all. If they are prop erty the constitution requires their taxation. Wihieve'r thlnkis ally protnissttry note Is not properrty within the meaning of tile constltu tiont eaur "test the 'orrietnese of the assess ment theretof beIfore the courts of justice."

Those who in good faith opposed thie former bills on this ground(l can safely dilmruise their fears. 'Thei foregolng arguments are made by thlir authors to estatitsh two propositions: First- That tihe taxatimon which this bill proviles will be excessive and ionerous. Secondt That the Interest tax of three mills Li entirely too much on such a large as sesmenut. If the lirst eropoltlon prove to be true, the treasury of the State will be well provided for during the next two years, and the ofi cers and others who have served the State will be at last fully paidl, the levees will be maintained and the sc:hools hre kept up. If there should be any excess It can eseily be utllizedl to support the government, its schools and its charities In 18.12 and after ward, and the General Assembly In 1882 can redluce the rate below six mills. If the sc'ond proposItion be true, It will re store conllienc5 in the credit of the State and will enable the State to save $4.080,0() by in duclng the refunding of its consolidated bonds lute new txxnd at seventy-tive cents on the dollar andti 4 per cent interest, as demon. stratid In the prevtous report of this commlt tee. And, moreiovitr, the State can save a large sumu by ustng the surplus of said tax'e to buy up the consolldatedl bonds 't tity c'ntt tn tthe dollar. But when th'j same r'tpresenutativs come to argue t'e sutll r:l.ney of the allowance of one mill for public educatlon and one mill for the general fund, they at ones shift their psition and adopt the contrw Jlictori argrt ment that the assessment wit)l not Ialrrg.
