The Tax Problem. At the recent tax assessors' convention in Dallas, Mr. Paul Moerscheldt, tax col? lector of Bexar county, submitted a plan (which he claims to bo "simple, plain and (not complicated." It Is as follows:.. "Do away with tho ussossment and collection of Stato taxes altogether, Lot ?nil taxes be collected by tho counties only, and lot the Legislature when thoy moet overy two years, absolutely fix by law the amount oaoh county In tho Stato should pay to the Stute comptroller or treasurer for the purpose of mooting "?tato ' expenses during that timo. An ?quitablo and Just way of determining or fixing tho amount that ouch oounty. should pay as Us pro rata of tho oxponses of carrying on our State government should not be dl.flloult.to nrrlvo at. After you .-ascertain tho . amount of nUanoy needed, by our State government during the com 'Jng year,' tho Legislature may take tho whole taxable values In tho State of ?Texas, according to the last tax rolls re? ceived', and ascertain what per cent, of this amount will have to bo levied or calculated to moot such annual expenses, mid whatever this per cent, amounts to, calculated on the amount of tho taxable values of each county In the State, will be the amount chargoablo to such county by tho comptroller, aim It would bo tho '\lrty of the commissioners' court of each ?county to seo to it- that such amount is remitted annually or semt-annually to itho Stato treasurer." It is conceded that this plan would be Stn tho Interest of economy and would bo an Improvement In many .respects on tho present system, but it is not so clear, ?Bays the Houston Post, that It would removo the lhjunttcu which makes tho present system so odious. "If tho Leg? islatura bo charged with tho duty of des? ignating what each county shall pay," ' says the Post, "what assurance can we liavo that the burdens would bo equita? bly, distributed? Mr, Moerschoidt sug? gests that tho last tax rolls bo used as a basis upon which to computo each county's dues. Accordingly, tho county that has been assessing its property at | 'fifteen per cent, of Its valuo will escape Its share of tho State burden, while iho Icounty that haa been assessed at seventy flvo per cent, will bo unjustly bled, as ,nt ?pr?sent." This comment, is quoted to show that "the Inequalities complained of In Vir? ginia exist also in Tuxas. Rut it acorns to us yiat under Mr. Meersclieldt's plan these Inequalities may In great part bo (removed. If, In adopting'the plan, the Stato should create a board of appor? tionment and equalization such board Would ascertain tho market value of prop? erty In tho novernl countlas and cities ter tho State, .and ninko the apportion? ment accordingly-, rigurdloss of the local yssessmon't. Tho plan is well worth- con? sidering In Virginia and In overy other Stato where there Is a uniform Stato ?rate, but there ato as many, bases of assessment as there uro counties. An Unremembered Hero. A little more than llvo years ago Dr. fvValtcr Reed, major In tho Medical De? partment, U. S. A., reported to the Pan ?lAmerlcan Congress, at Havana, tho re? sult of his experimenta demonstrating Uut yellow fever is not, properly speak? ing, contagious. That is, that this disease Is not carried by cloth? ing, does not Infect tho nouuo 418 scarlet fover, diphtheria or smallpox, *nd that tho usual, 1? not the only, meth? od of transmitting It Is by the blto of a mosquito. Tho Immediate, offuct of this ?dlsoovery was to relievo tho approbeiiHlon that liud theretofore been felt throughout 'the entire South whenever a cuso of yui low fever broke out, and. by waging w'n'r ?upon tho mosquito and protecting tho 'patients from the possibility of bqJns bit ton, tho spread of ilia distilo bus abso? lutely be<in prevented.

On July 2-lth a citizen refusod to pu a second faro to tho Brooklyn Rapl Transit Company, v and was thcroupo arrested by tho St'ato of Now York fo creating- a disturbance. When the ens was brought before Justice Gaynor, tin defendant was paroled, and two day later, when tho case was tried, tho coun sol for tho company alleged that th? whole affair was a trlok gotten up ti depress tho stock of that company However, on 'Saturday, tho 28th, Jus boforo tho heavy rush for Sunday began Judge Gaynor, ono of the candidates foi tho Domocrntlc nomination for Governor handed down a decision, holding tho part) who bad been arrested not guilty. Ii will bo observed that tho conflict wat between tho Stato and the individual! for law-breaking, and that the Brooklyt Rapid Tranalt Company was not in cour at all,;. Nevertheless Judgo Caynor.undor took to glvo a lecture on double fares nnd stated the perfectly obvious propo? sition that "a public usrvlco corporation Is no moro entitled to exact a feo or charge In excess. of that proscribed by law than Is a public officer." But it has never boon decided by any competent trlbunul that tho double faro was oxees, slvo In point of law. As soon as this decision was handed down, the cheap journals of New York, especially those tliaj aro undor the owno?shlp or manage? ment of William R, Hearst, urgod tho people to take tho law In their own ?bunds and stand up for tholr rights, with the result, says tho Now York Herald, that ono young woman lost her life, a dozen women and girls wero sont to the hospitals, forty men aro In Jail, the traf? fic of the entire borough of Brooklyn bus boon dorangud, business at Coney Island has boon Injured, suffering has. bocn .Imposed upon thousands of peace? ful passengers willing to pay their faro, other thousands have beon dotorrcd from enjoying a visit to tho beach, hundreds of men havo voluntarily endured, dis? comfort, If not actual misery, in obe dlonco to what they fanolod was their duty, nnd tho good mu?o ?f tho city lina boon drugged In tho mire.

The Legislature of Georgia at Its late session onactod a law providing that af? ter January 1st brokers who dleal in cotton futures shall go'out of business. At prosent 'there aro fort'y-throo bucket shops in Georgia, which pay tho State $13,000" llconao foes, nino of which aro located in Atlanta, and tho law will throw out of employment fifty telegraph operators, twonty bookkeepers and clerks and nlno -managers. It would seem that tills would make tho law unpopular, but tho Age-H'crald, of Birmingham, says that tho recent do-, falcatlon of a -banltor In that city who had been speculating In cotton futures may, provoke the Alabama Legislature to similar action; and the lCnoxvlllo Sen? tinel calls upon tho Tennessee Legista turo to .follow suit It is said that teaohers' salaries In tjio State of South Carolina aro twonty-flvu per cent, higher than they were ten yoars ago, and the reason assigned is that teaching in South Carolina haa now be como a profession and those who ongago In It have been at ?pains, to talco ad? vantage of instructions In tho normal schools to fit. themselves for their.oocu patlon. As tho teachers havo becomo more and moro compotont 'their salaries have advanced. That is a good hint for teachers lp all States.
