-San Francisco has been Interested In a

went to thetocal agency or a New York: com?

agents forwarded the papers to New York for 1
a policy, and in a day ot two after the papers 1
bad been seat the man was murdered. The 1
agents then telegraphed to New York and pre
vented the Issue of the policy. The widow
Sued for the amount of the intended Insur?
ance, and the jory was unable to agree. It ls '
apparent 'thar the law was on the side of the
Company, however much sympathy may have
been on the side ot the widow. Ooe moral
can be deduced from this ourlons case, and
that ls that home institutions should be pat?
ronised. Had this ont orton ate San Francis?
can been insured in a local company, he
would have received his policy In time to be
murdered. 'tts J
-A terrible Incident of the Boston Are took
place at the furnishing store pi Hickman, on
Washington street, where the wa ls had been
wrapt bi a deadly embrace by the flame?, and
had become week and tottering through the
Intense heat. At leugih they fell, and three
men were buried up to the shoulders among
the heavy fragmenta of brick and atone. The
terrible ph ye leal agony of their orlea of angolan
which they Buffered filled the frightened crowd
with horror, but at first no one advanced to
their, succor. Alter a few moments two or
three naen crossed the street to where a portion
of the wall was still overhanging the spot|where
the poor victims were begging and shrieking
for help, and tried by the utmost exertion of
main strength to pull and wrench them out ol
the horrible vise, but these efforts only made
greater their sufferings, and the bricks and
debris were still falling at every moment. The
men relinquished the perilous and fruitless
risk and retreated from the dangerous spot,
and shortly afterwarda, in frightful paroxysms
of pain and with orieB thal will ring In the
ears of many of the spectators to their dying
day, the crushed masses of humanity gave up
the breath of life, ann y.ere a moment after?

This tax question is terribly muddled. In?

Aa foreshadowed In oar Colombia tele?
grams several days ago, Oomptroller-Neagle
has issued instructions to the county audi?
tors to levy a tax or six mills to meet ap?
propriations for the year beginning No?
vember 1,1871, two mills for the support
of. the public schoolB, sod four mills to
pay Interest on the public debt This,
with., three mills county tax, making an
aggregate State and county tax of. fifteen
mills. Thia, aa- already explained, was
hardly as bad as waa anticipated. When
ten mills onght to be enough, and twenty
six mills are proposed, a tax of fifteen
mills is a pretty good compromise. Now,
however, Secretary of State Cardoso, tbe
Treasurer elect, appears on the scene, and
obtains from Judge Melton a temporary In?
junction restraining the State and county
treasurers from using any part of the forth?
coming tax for any parp?se whatsoever,
except the payment of the appropriations j
made in the general appropriation bill
passed last session. This forbids the pay?
ment of the pay-certlflcates, and of the hage
mass of other claims against the State wbleb
speculators have bought ap, at a heavy dis?
count, with the hope that their friends in
the cap ?Lol would so fix things as to give
them their moo ey Jn foll before any spasms
of reform barred the treasury doors. Thoy
are disappointed, and if, as is hoped will be
the ease, the injonction be made permanent,
a h oat o? Ill-gotten obligations will be re?
duced In value to the price of waste paper
atajuukshop. Secretary Cardozo appears
to have acted with firmness and discretion.
His explanation of his trip to Hew York, lo
company with tbe Great Seal of the State,
has not been satisfactorily explained, bat
against this may be set bis intrepidity ia re
raaing to seal batches of conversion bonds to
be used in bola ter lng op "the credit of the
"State." And his last actis his best The
people loathe the very name of pay certifi?
cates, and they will oot be sparing in their
thanks, If the treasurer elect, the most
highly educated colored man la the State,
should prove his practical devotion to the
welfare of the place of bis birth by foiling
the "shavers" and claim-jobbers, and giving
the people the certainty that no claim ls
paid except for services honestly rendered,
by authority of law, at a fair rice. It ls a
good beginning, and we have no right to
cast about for other motives than those
which lie oa the surface.
Judge Melton, tba Attorney-General elect,
granted the temporary injunction applied
for upon hearing the argument of the peti?
tioner, and requires that cause b? shown,
oo the 21st instant, why the iojunotion
should not be made permanent What the
tin al decision of the court will be no ooe cao
know in ad vanea Bat we have fall confi?
dence that lt will express the disinterested
and deliberate convictions of the court
Judge Melton bas proved himself to "be an
able lawyer and aa upright Judge; and It is
not doubted that when he assumes the duties
of Attorney-General he will continue to be
a vigilant guardian of the Interests of the
public. There is plenty of Important work
io do, and Tan News believes that Judge
Melton is just the man to do It
-The Colombia conservative papers ad?
vise the people, in view of the pending liti?
gation and the subtlety of the outgoing
officials, to withhold the payment of taxes
until the lat of January, which can be done
without Incurring aoy penalty. It is to be
boped that the action of tbs courts will
mako it unnecessary to consider seriously
this proposition. Unless the taxes are paid
with reasonable promptitude, money will be
borrowed, at exorbitant rates, to .meet the
correat. expeoses of the Government and
the commissions and interest, as high as
the State credit Is low, most come, at last,
out of the pockets of the people. Soon or
late, the people pay the piper.
The State Board of Canvassers have
thrown oat the protest of the Mackeyites,
and decided that Bowen and the Bolting
legislative, ticket were properly elected.
With the exception of the candidates for
County Commissioners and for Clerk of
Court, the whole of the Bowen county nomi
nees go into ofiica. For this result the
Conservative voters, by their action, or by
their non-aotlon, have made themselves re?
sponsible. They could easily have beateo
Bowen, and the only rational explanation
or their failure to do so ls tbat they believe
that Bowen will make as good a sheriff as
Mackey, ff not a better one. THE NEWS
hopes tbat they may have no cause to
change their opinion.,
The oew sheriff might begin his official
career very satisfactorily by clearing away
the crowd of idle negroes who are wont to
lounge around the Courthouse corner, under
the sherill's own particular casement.
The Last Tax SenaaUon.
Th3 Colombia correspondent of THE NEWS
telegraphs that it was rumored in Colombia
on Saturday that an application would be
made, within a day or two, foran injunction
restraining the Comptroller-General from
making the proposed tax levy of fifteen
mills on the dollar. The gist of the objec?
tion appears to be that the joint resolution,
under which tho levy is to be made, is im?
properly worded, and that the Comptroller
General has no authority to levy any tax for
the payment of the interest on the public
debt. The alleged error in the joint resolu?
tion in question is, that the tax is made to
meet appropriations for the fiscal year
.'commencing November 1, 1871;" while it
should have been made for the year "com
"mencing November 1,1872," a tax for the
first-named period having already been
levied and collected. Oar correspondent
thinks that the blunder can be discovered at
the first glance, bat this ls not so certain.
The general tax levies made in this State,
since the beginniog of reconstruction, are
1. The order of Hajor-General Canby, dated
December 3, 1867, levying taxes "to provide
"for the support o? the Provisional Govern
"ment of South Carolina for the year com?
mencing on the first day o? Ootober, 1867,
"and ending on the thirtieth day of Septem
2. The Joint Resolution ot December 22,
1869, levying a State tax of one-half of one per
cent, "to meet appropriations for the fiscal
"year 1869." This tax was doe and payable
(A. A. September 17, 1868,)belore the first, ol
3. The Joint Resolution of December 23,
1870, levying a State tax of 9 mills "to meet
"appropriations for the Asea) year 1870 " This
tax was due and payable (A. A. September 17,
1868.) before the first of Maroh, 1871.
?. The Joint Resolution of March 7,1871,
levying a State tax of 7 mills "to meet ap?
propriations lor the fiscal year 1871." This
tax was due and payable (A. A. March 8,
1871, ) before the fifteenth ?l Janaary, 1872.
j 5. The Joint Resolution of March 13, 1872,
levying a State tax of G mills (exclusive of
school tax, and the tax for interest on the
debt) "to meet appropriations for the fiscal
.'year commencing November 1,1871." Tbls,
tax (A. A. March 8, 1871,) falls due before
January 16, 1873.
If there be any other levies than these, we
do not know where to find any record of
them. The first levy on the Hst is for the
year ending September 30, 1868. The re?
construction constitution provided that the
fiscal year should begin on the 1st of No?
vember instead of the 1st of Ootober. The
new or reconstruction Legislators borrowed
rooney right and left, bat appear to have
made no tax levy until December 22, 18C9,
which levy was for the. fiscal year 1869.
Levies for the snoceeding years were regu?
larly made, the last being for the fiscal
year "commencing November 1, 1871,"
which date, it is ol aim ed, should be Novem?
ber 1, 1872. This view, however, is not
confirmed by a careful examination of tbe
facts. General Canby's tax year ended
September SO, 1868. The first legislative
tax levy was for "the fiscal year 1869."
Now, unless the Legislators deliberately In?
tended to remit all taxes for one year, that
levy was for the fiscal year beginning No?
vember 1, 1868, and ending October 3),
1869. Upon this hypothesis the phraseology
of the joint resolution is Btrictly correct.
That of December 23, 1870, was for the
fiscal year 1870, L e. from November 1,
1869. to October. 31,1870. That of March
7,1871, was for "the fiscal year 1871," i. e.
from November 1, 1870, to October 31,1871.
That or March 13, 1872, is, in its own
words, "for the fiscal year commencing No
"vember l, 1871." This makes the chain
complete. In no other way can the several
levies be explained.
The question whether the Comptroller has
authority to levy a tax for the payment of
the interest on the public debt ls not so
quickly settled. A judicial decision only
can determine that But if any set of citi?
zens can demonstrate that the State tux
paid last Janaary (J. E. March 7, 1871,)
was for the year ending October 31, 1872,
instead of for the year ending October 31,
1871, the taxpayers will be profoundly
grateful. They have no objection to make
to any proceeding which proves that they
are a year ahead of time in the matter of

force on .property la the burnt district to tie 220,
ouvsrlng property to toe amount or $i,ecor004;a
moderate estimate for salvages will reduce the
amount of our actual loss to $i,aco,ooo, or less.
The net assets of the Company on the U t inst,
amounted to 86,000,000. Thus, after providing
for all lu liabilities, including losses at Boston,
the Company la possessed or assets of over $8,
It ls hardly necessary to say that the Atna
