Tiie City ?on.
Tho City ol Anderson hi's won a vic
tory over th? Standard Oil Company.
Some lime UKO tho city council decided
to put n Meeline tax of $150 on ali com
panies selling oil here. Thu Standard
Oil Company, through its attorney,
.Joseph A. McCullough, Esq., of Green
ville, resisted tue collection of tho tax,
and an injunction wan secured from
the Courts rcntraining tho city from
collecting tho tax. A recent decision
of the Supremo Court of the State in a
case brought in Spai tanburg set foi til
principles which made it clear that the
Anderson ordinance, at least, was not
objectionable on the grounds ot' being
excessive or discriminuting, und tho
comp.my abandoned any further ac
tion niter paying iii the cont.-, and ox

Haid that the "sharks" drew their legal
paper in such a manner as to avoid
violating a letter of the law, though
its spirit was certainly broken. It ia a
pity that a good case cannot be brought
against some of them. It was sug
gested that a general license tax be
imposed on lines of business in the
city, hut action in tho matter waa de
