THE DOItKOWER PAYS THE TAX.
? A correspondent wishes to know how
Tho Tlmes-Dlspatch "makea st appear
that the- monoy lender collec'te tho tax]
from tlie borrower," in caseii whero'
mortgago notos aro taxed. "I have]
been a money borrower to somo ex
tent all my llfe," says ho. "and nowi
borrow and Iend monoy as necesstty
cclls for. and 1 have never paid a cent
of. tax on tho money 1 borrowed, or
exacted a cent of tax on the money
r loaned out, and havo nover known
such a thlng done,"
Quite so. Our correspondent has
never aeen i: cent of the tariff tax
itemlzed ln any bill of goods that he
may have purehased, but ho pays tho
';ix. neverthcless. Tho lmportc-r pays
lt to the custom hottso ofllcinls, but lt
is "added to tlie cost of the goods and
Tho conaumev pays it in tho end.
"I havo t^een a caroful est!mate,"-satd
Judgo Jud.sou llnrmon in a speech at
Nashville yesterday, "showing that
every famlly ln tho United States con
trfbutes an, a,verago of $100 per ycar
to the SQj,ri?>C th'o beneticlarles of the
Dlrjgley tariff, la lncreased cost of ne
ce?3lties alone."'
And so does the money lender mako
the borrower pay the tax on mortgage
loans. Hc adda jt to tho (nteroKt
charge. Tahe an example. in Rlch
mond the State and clty tax levy com
blned. fs 1 3-4 per cent. The rullng
lnp?rcst rate ln G per cent., so that a
real estate loan nets tlio lender 4 1-1
per cent. In ordinary tlmes thero are
large sums of money in P.iehmond
j=eekirg real estat,: loans'nt C per cent.
interest, and if there wero no tax on
mortgage loans, tho rato of Interest
would decline from ?3 per cent. to t 1-4
per cent. It is the tax that makes tht
difference. The cuso will bo made
clearet- if we reverso tho propositlon
Euppose tliere wero no mortgage ta?
ln Virginia, and tbe rtillng rato of in
?erest were 4 1-1 per cont., as mos
probably lt would be.
Then supposc that tho Stato and clt;
phould levy a tax of 1 3-1 per cent. ot
mortgage loans. The interest rat
would soon be lncreased to G per ceni
Who would pay the tax, the lender o
the borrower?
Thls is not meroly a theory. it ha
been put to tho test and proven. Th
censirt reports show that ln Pennsyl
vania morigtges were taxahle durin
tha decade from 1SS0 to IS90 at th
rate of 4 mllls per annurn during nliou
fivo years. and at tho rate of U mlll
per annum for tho remalnder of th
?tlme. ln Massachusetts mortgage
vere exempt from taxation for nln
year* of tl.e deeode. In Boston th
?.ver&gQ rt-tc of interest on mortgage
tor tho ten-yeui perlod was C.1S p<
eeijt., while ln Phi].-i?iphla lt was 5,|
per cent.
lt must be so ln ovt-ry iiluco nnd 1
?vory fiituatlon. Whenever an

TIIIS POSTAL BANKS OI" FUANG13.
, To the strength nnd popularity of the
postal savings banks our consttl-gen ?
eral at Faris. Mr. Mason, nttributes
much of tho stabtlity of the monetary
system of France. Tlio thrlfty pcas
ants of that country have taken klndly
to the postal banks. and use them
largely and systematically. The sys?
tem was inauguratcd in 18S1. Now
thc banks number about 8,000. Four
milllon persons citrry accounts ln thorn,
anel thelr deposits oggregate over $240,
000,000.
It does not appear that thls total
has been rollod up at tho-expense of
the other banks. Mr. Mason contends
that the postal bank'- In France, do far
from lnjurlng thu private and munici?
pal banks, havo actcd .*"* feeders to
them. Tho postal banks, ac says, haye
largely created their own fleld. They
have drawn from a class of people who
havo not patro'ilzcd, and peilinps would
not patronlze, other banking inHtitu
tlons. Whon they have acqulred thu
savings hablt, they aro likely to pass
on to these other Instltutlons. For tho
government placos a llmlt of 5250 on
postal deposits, and when a eleposltor
Is ready to pass that llmlt. lie must
?tnko hls account elscwhcro. Thus thu

Slmple-mln'ded and loyal to tho core.

Rcluctantly, he Bat down to the

But the Cardlnal jroferred the flt

In Kloom. Lord Everlngham was a
noted and .very proflclent playor: Hls
Kmlnencei was enjoylng the .game
thoroughly.
"Check to your king, my lord Cardl?

"Only a tomporary check, you nee.
my lord," rejolned Hls Emlnence, as
wlth slcnder, taperlng flngers he
moved one ot the Ivory ploees on the
board. "By the help of thla llttlo

"Not serlous, I think, your Emlnence.
and onco moro chccit to your king."
Even ua he spoke, the two sorvllors
flnally left the room. closlng; tho hcavy
doors nolselessly behlnd them. .
"Oh!" i-ald the Cardlnal thoughtfully
"thls wlll nece.c.sltnte a bolder move er.i

hearL Loyalty to his frlend, love for
his country. and an overwhoirnlm
anxlcty for Ito welfaro, cried out loud?
ly wlthln him. The vory thought of,
meeting- Wessex face to faco al thls
moment was tcrrlble to hlm. and y?t
he would not undo what he had
already done. and would not thwart
tho Spanlard's tortuous schemes by bs
traylng them to the Duke.
Tho purposo whlch ho had ln view
bllnded hlm to everythlng save tho
hopo of its ultlmate acliievement At

shared Mary Tudor'a throne wlth her,
so much thal was great and good
would come to England thereby that
nll petty conslderatlons of tomporarv

Innocent woman. would qulckly vanlsii
Into Inslgnlflcance.
Tlio very foellr gu of remoree and of

falth. for he was sufferirg keenly and
ucutely to the very depttis of his hon

The Cardlnal looked benevot^ ntl
cnrnpa^sl-ipate. At heart be was moro
than plad to thlnk that thls blunderlng
Englli-hman dou'd be well out r.f thu

. [ ln dc=nalr the Cardlnal had turned
