The Tax Unions.
The Abbevillo Medium asks what
has become of the tax unions. The
editor thinks that if the organiza
'tion hadl boeen more thorough and
its members more in earnest, great
good would have resulted; whereas
they lhave sunk out of sight, and
have, in a majority of cases, failed
to do anything that was promised.
'We tink'these inquiries and conm
ments thnely'and pertinent. The
kouble with ihe msovernent was that
its loaders looked, only to political
change to give relief ms the matter
of bad administration. Tho true
mission of the tat unions was to
attack abuses by creating a p~ublic
ophilon which would act as a check

With a small body of citizens, do
terminod, vigilant and intelligent, in
eyery court house town, wvho would
devote themselves to attending the
annetings of their lboards of county
commissioners and watching the
business transacted, on-half of the
extravagance and fraud which loads
~theg with debt would be prevented.

obmmiissioners and town- councils
in every part of the state. The
intelligent business men of a cogi
munity will toil and worry many
hours to make the money to pay
thre#, but they will not spare an
hour a month to watch how the
money Is spent.
'Let no one say tihmt such wvatchi
ful~ness would be time wasted.
