Tl.o system of the co-cducatlou of tbe sexes
is making mpul advances, these days, and it
would not bo at 'all surprising If within a
very few years all or most of tbe higher in
stitutions of learning, In tills country, at
least, admlttul young women to their classes
outbe tame tenns as young men. It wns only
two geneintlous ago llut Sidney Smith wrote
an essay upon ll.e hlgliir cduciliou of wom
en, ult,g ul most exactly the same argument!
which champions of tbe cause advance to
day i lilt at that lime tbe Idea of admitting
women to colleges on equal lei ins with men
wa3 treated with derision and cjiitcmpt.
Tho lcnv 'n kept worklug, however, and a
quaiter ot i century ago the public mind In
England awoke to tin fact lliat "finishing
schools" afforded but Iho most supcificiul
education, and that nolhlr.g better was open
to women . and Iheic wits a demand made
for coll ges wheie gills could iccelvc exactly
the tame advantages which their biothcu en
joyed in tlie greit unlvel.ities. Tho objec
tions to Ibis piojict were the s.imo as those
urgeel at resent by those opposed to liberal
cti'.tuiu among women. Il was declared that
tho nine difficult subjects in a university
course w e rc beyond a woman's mentul grap :
that tho female eonslllullou is toi weak for
the physical strain of hind ttudy i that learn,
ing makio women pedinlle, und that blue
stockings are not disiiablo Iu society , Hint a
voman, not beluga man, does not need a
man's education. Tbe prouf e,f the pudding
Is In the fining, and tho establishment or
Queen's College, London, wheie young worn
en aio pie.j.iiid for a unlrcrsity course,
showed at least tlie tir.l two objections lo
won'au's admission lo the gnat Institutions of
learning to bo unfounded. In 1803 a collego
fir girls wai cstubllslied at (liilon,i ear Cam-
bridge, and Its studcnls have frequently taken
University honor, In 187o a tecond collego
for women was established at Cambridge In
1878, London University opened lis doois to
women and al tho present time female
students arc admitted to the classes at Ox
In Ihls countiy, the progiess made In the
direction Indicated is familiar to all renders,
Itcncwed attention has been directed to the
matter by tho leccnl effort lo induce the
TrusliesotColuiiiblaCollegu toopen the doors
of that Institution to woiuen-au effort of
cpcclal note, since Columbia Is one of the
oldest, most famou, and most conservative
colleeesof Iho United States. A year ago there
was foinicd In New Yoik an Association for
nroraollnir lho!blilier education ot worn
en, one of tbc nat Ocular objeets of tbe organ-
Izitlon being to nemo Hie admission ot
women Into Columbia college. A public
meeting was li'ld, atwblch tho objects of Iho
organization wire explained and commended

Tbe system ot taxation now in general uso
In this country lias prubibly ntto'ined tbe ut
most perfection and thoroughness of which
it is capable In tbe law now in force in this
State. This fact is generally lcco'nlzeel
and a number of Governors have in their
messages retericel lo our liw nnd have re
commended the niloptlon or imitation of Its
piinciples. I!ut while the law lias just reach
cd tbc highest point ot efficiency, it is per
hips au open question whether It will ic-
main permanently satisfactory. At presjnt
It is strongly backed, ns all successful
legislation must.be, by tbc overwhelm
ing pnvcr of public sentiment j an.
this public sentiment Is kept ulive and
stiniul-Ueel by the power of the presi. ns we
Inpc and trust will long bo tbecis;. l!ut that
eternal vigllaucc which is the prico of equal
taxation us well in ot liberty may iel.iv
public sentiment, now so strongly in favor ot
the law, nny llsg nnd it is quite within tbe
possibilities that in the course of time lb
condition of things may lebix into wli-it It
was unelcr llu old hw a possibility the
more likely, In that Iho new law mailo no
icilly ladical change In tbe old system, but
owed its Iboiough and successful enforce
ment simply lo nn aroused and determined
public sentiment. Then, again, the law is
unquestionably Inquisitional, as all successful
Inws under tlie system must be ; nnd how It
is icgardcd by some competent nutlioritics is
seen by Iho report of the New York State
Asscssois, In which it is arralgnul as
"abboiient to Iho spirit of a free people,''
and "a heavy premium on every form ot
evasion, concealment and filsehool, and a
crushinj tax on integrity." It is hardly nec
essary for in to say that for our own part we
do not arco with this sweeping denuncia
tion ot tbe law, wbieh was oppaicntiy writ
ten without a sufficient uiidoretniiding of it ;
but it is a fact beyond controversy that llio
system in force all over the United States Is
lnquisiloiial In lt3 scopo and tcnelency, nnd
tends to tbe abuses catalogueel by tho New
Such I cing the case and we believe lliat
It can not be successfully disputed attention
Is naturally directed to the new thcoiy of
taxation, which is leceivlng earnest suppoit
in able and Influential epiulers. Uy this
taxation Is limited loland and lo a few classes
of direct business competitors. Tlie argument
Is, in luief, that all immeJiate competitors
and competing properly should be unifoimly
nnd piimarily burilened ; but that equality
and uniformity of taxation do not require
that all Items of property anil all classes of
business should bo made subject to a primary
huidcu. Land is a universal 1 busiuess stand
with jut a competitor, nnd its taxation, llierc
foie, involves a burden on Its use anil on all
forms of business and personal property.
The taxation of lands, and a moderate nnd
uniform taxation of all immediate compet
itor in each class of a few iHstinct and broad
classes of business, will render these few
bread aud visible subjects of primary taxa
lion convenient and economical tax advanc
ers, and tbe subject of a Unal burden to any
pel sou, except to consumers, on w bom all
uniform taxation finally rests. Tbe pirson
who advances lo tho Slate a uniform tax on
a given class ot propel ty or business, ilislrib.
litis and equates it secondarily in commodi
ties, by tbe natural laws of competition, nnd
sells or icnts his advanced laves In Ids pri
ces, because bis Immediate compctitois ate
subject to the same and uniform tax. The
tax advancci's relative coiidilion Is therefore
unchanged by reason of the tnx which he ins
advanced, anil which becomes t the final
consumer a part of tbe cost of production.
This Is apparent in the case of heavy Custom
House dues on importations; but it is nol
less evident or true in the case of other taxes
uniformly Imposed on all persons, property
or business of tlie same anil competing class.
There, are no means anil there should ho no
means of picvcnting people from selling or
rcnllngdn their prie-es taxes which Ihcy hive
advanced, and it Is safe to conclude lliat il
always will bo done If the taxes are perma
nent and uniformly imposed on all Immediate
competitors and competing property.
This, put in tho briefest form, is the sub.
stance of tbe argument advanced in behalf of
tbc new theory of taxation. Iu stating tbc
argument wo nre by no menus to bo understood
as uoquilinctlly commending the system, for
wo arc by no means prepared to do 6o. Hut
a Irlal of tho plan would bs of tho greatest
interest and value, nnd it would b3 a great
thing for the country If one of our Common
wealths would rhk the experiment.
