THE POOR MAN'S BURDEN.
We have been writing editor
ials on the tax problem, and
they have attracted the atten
tion of the people generally: they
have also put many writers to
thinking of the serious condition
our trusted public servants have
the taxpayers in. We have con
tended all along that the pro
posed change as directed by the
Comrtroller General can only
put the honest taxpayers at a
disadvantage, and the dishonest
taxpayer, not only shirks his
duty.as a citizen, but actually
outs an additional burden upon
the honest man who regards his
oath and his loyalty to his coun
try. There is not the slightest
doubt in our mind, but that Gov
ernor Heyward will see the ne
cessity to call a special session
of the legislature to prevent the
honest man from being wronged.
The expense of sudch a session
will not be near as much as the
amount stolen from the taxpay
ers in the whiskey label trans
action alone, and it will be a
mere bagatelle to the enormous
amount of money that will be
needlessly forced from the pock
ets of the people by this increas
ed assessment of property with
out first having provided for a
sufficient lowering of the tax
levv. The Columbia State of last
Sunday contained a cartoon
which fully describes the inequal
ity of the situation, and by its
courtesy we reproduce it. This
cartoon is a convincer, it is in
concrete form, an argument which
must appeal to every reasoning
mind, and which urges the peo
pie to stop putting into office
incompetent men, and to scorn
any attempt of a political dema
gogue to 'arouse prejudice for
office-riding purposes. This car
toon is an appeal to every voter
to exercise his ~fanchise in a
sane and manlyeway, not for the
gratification of a political monte
bank. not to save men from the
almshouse. and not to elevate
'jolly good fellows," but to have
our government placed.. upon
competent and honest, just and
equitable business principles,
so that every taxpayer shall
be equal before the law.
Our present condition is such,
brought on by political manipu
lati on,. that the rich escape their
just proportion of taxation,throw
ing the load upon the poor who
must bear the burden, and the
only way to escape this wretch
ed condition, is to lay aside fool
ish prejudices fanned into flame
by a demagogue for his selfish
purposes, and to stand up like
men to put into power those of
brain and patriotism.
THREATS WON'T GO.
Senator Tillman is not in a
pleasant humor over the action
of the South Carolina Legisla
ture, and he has started out with
a vigorous popping of his whip
to frignten the Senators into
voting to save his "baby" from
interment. The Senator is strong
with the people, there is no
doubt, and especially the class
of people who manipulate pri
mary elections, but unless we
mistake the signs of the times,
his day for dictation is passed,
and if he wants to return to the
United States Senate he will do
well to take his medicine like a
man, and let the people have
their own sweet will with State
natters, Ben Tillman, nor any
other earthly power can save
that miserable debauchery-the
State Dispensary. The people
have learned that they have
been fooled only too long. The
promised reduction of taxation
through the enormous income
from the State (politicians) con
trol of liquor, has not material
ized, but on the contrary, tax
es are actually higher than they
were when the black thieves
controlled the State, and Sena
tor Tillman will find that when
he again undertakes to stir up
the people with one of his
schrewdly devised schemes, he
will learn that his "lu lu hand"
will not work twice on the same1
people. He must come before
the people with sonme other
stock-in-trade than that of put -
ting the blame of rebate-taking
on whiskey, and labels, on the
other fellow. He will be rec
minded that away back in 1899,
when he himself said in an in
terview, '-the management of
the dispensary was a stench in
the nostrils of decent people,"'
and, that when an attempt was
made to take the dispensary out
of politics, and to give the peo
ple, the taxpayers, and not the
politicians, the management of
their own affairs, it was he who
cracked his political whip over
the heads of the sycophants and
gave the scandal-breeding fac
tory a longer lease of life. He
will also be reminded that the
charges of rottenness does not

Governor's chair, but that it dates
from the very first consignunent
f whiskey to the State dispen
sary, and. just as soon as the
people learned that no credits
for rebates appeared upon the
books of the State Dispensary,
there has a constant wonder
what become of them. These
things will loom up before the
Senator the coming summer,
when he undertakes to coerce the
people to vote for his personal
advantages, regardless of their
own. In our opinion, Senator
Tilman is playing with a fire
which will destroy him. We do
not know now who will oppose,
him, but he is playing a game
to invite opposition good, and
strong, that he, nor can the class
of politicians he will be able to
