A. M. BUKNEY, Editor. Taxation is the Topic. Tbe new- revenue law provides that there shall be a tax of 40 cents on every $100 worth of property, 30 cents of which shall be for State purposes, and ten cents for schools, allowing at the same time the county courts to levy an annual tax for county purposes not to exceed the State tax. It also re quires of merchants an advalorem tax of 30 cents on the $100 of capital in vested and 30 cents on each $100 as a privilege tax, provided such privilege tax shall not in any case be less than 110 ; and in addition thereto 10 cents on the capital invested, for school pur poses. The tax on property will then be as follows : For the State, 40 cents ; for the county, not over 40 cents ; for iin provement of roads, not less than 2 cents; for schools, say 10 cents, amounting in all to 92 cents, beyond which it cau not go unless the county levies moralhnjilQxentaJurfichaola and two cents for the roads, and it may fall as far below the 92 cents as the county levies less than 40 cents for its purposes, That is, if the county should levy only 20 cents for general purposes, 10 cents for schools and 5 cents for roads, this added to the State tax would make 75 cents ou the $100 as the en tire tax for all purposes. From this it will be seen that much of the high tax will come from the county courts as well as from the Leg islature. WHICH SHALL WE TIKE! Non-Eesident Notice. Five Hundred to Choose From. David Brewer et al vs. Solomon Bank et al. A Grammar of the English Language, (or Schools and Academies, with Copious Parsing Exercises, by Win. Bingham, A. M., Superintendent of the Bingham School, Mebaneville, N. C. The above is the title of a popular work on English Grammar by one of the most populur authors on grammar, and one of the most successful teachers in the United States. Having more than five hundred boekt on English Grammar to select from, it becomes a question of no small import, as well as one of no little difficulty for teachers to decide which one is best suited to impart a correct knowledge of the language to the student, Prof. Bingham claims, and we think Justly too, in the preparation of this work, thut he has "kept nbreust" with the "progress of philological research," and followed "the analogy of those languages whose forms are fuller and more easily determined than those of our own tongue." To this end He has, as far as possible, given the rules and defini tions identical with those in the Latin Gram mar, which he has published and which we noticed with unqualified approbation in our last issue. This identity of languages is cer tainly the true standpoint from whioh both the English and Latin student should bo taught to view the subject of philology, oth erwisa there is no philology, and language hiis no parent stem. We congratulate the distinguished author upon hi success in this effort, and the profession of teachers and the country generally upon their good fortuue in having such a work placed in our schools. The work is now used as text book tn many of the best schools in theUnited States. It is a grammar complete within it self, and besides this it contains selections for parsing from lhi fi .peciuiens of Uugiisn literature, both prose and poetry, thus superseding the necessity of buying a separate book for parsing exercises. The selections are from Irving, Scott, Bunyan, Addison, Milton, Moore, Shakespeare, Gray, Ilemaus, Campbell, Cowper and Poe. In this cause it appearing to the Clrk and Master irom complainants' bill, which is sworn to, that the defendants Solomon llnnkiand wife, Surah A. Banks, Robert Paris, and wife. Marv A. Paris. Edwards. Sarah Boss and her husband Ross, Para lee Neal and her husband Neal, Fanny JJavis and husband John Davis, W. J. lir ew er, A. M. Brewer, John W. Brewer, Calvin Al. Isrewer and John Brewer, David, riancy C, Rebecca J., Marv A.. William. Charlotte Thomas and Russell Brown, are non-resi dents of the state of Teuuessee so that the ordinary process of law cannot be served on them. Therefore it is ordered that publica tion be made in the Seuthern Standard for four consecutive weeks commanding the said non-resident defendents to appear be fore the Chancery Court to be held for the county of Warren at the Courthouse in Mc- Minnville, Tenn., on the 1st Monday of May 1881, and then and there make defense to said bill or the same will be taken for con fessed and set for hearing ex parte as to them.

Only One Change TO- Theres one consolation about the 100-3, since we come to think about it, we'll not have it all to pay. There is no Appeal. The Memphis Appeal has this to say about the 100-3 settlement : A law making coupons receivable or taxes cannot be repealed or modified by a subsequent Legislature nor by a new constitution ot the State duly adopted by the people of the State, for the reason that the Federal constitution provides that "no State shall pass a law impairing the obligations of a contract." An agreement to receive the coupons of the State in payment of State taxes is a contract that cannot be impaired by either a legislative act or a constitu tional change m the organic law of the State. Further agitation of the sub ject would, therefore, be little short of criminal. Useless Agitation. We call the attention of our readers to tbe useless agitation of the debt question now sought to be inaugurated by men aud newspapers that were si lent during the sittings of the Legisla ture and had not a word or a plan to suggest by which this vexed question might be removed from politics. If tbey had been as busy then in trying to harmonize the conflicting opinions of the different factions, as they are now to array them one against another, we would to-day have had a settlement very different from the 100-3. It was precisely this course of factious agita tion begun about this time Inst year that resulted in a division of the Bern- cratio party in August and its defeat in November, and has now culminated in the 100-3 settlement. Is not tbis an other scheme for office r Is it not to revive a faction and engender discord ? Was not this precisely the course tlmt defeated the oU-4 in What is the object of this agitation ? Tennessee has a debt of 27 millions, and a million aud a half of people to pay it, and over five hundred millions of dollars to pay it with. This gives an indebtedness of $18 to each person, and fm cents and four mills to each doling (J the entire wealth of the State. A Letter on the Situation. Nashviixk, April 6, 1881 My Dear Friend : The 100-3 bill is now the law. You know that from the begin ning I have desired and worked for a dif ferent settlement. I have many, very ninny objections to the ioo-a mil, but anything al most was better than no settlement We warned the people in 1877 and in 1879 that the rejection of the 50-6 in 1877 and of MM in 1879 would result in somethinf worse and sure t nouvh it has. Even if this bill had been rejected, and no settlement made it might have been even worse in 1882 than the 100-3 settlement. We were in a terrible condition. The only plan I can see to get out of it is I suggested to you, to issue $15,000,000 of 6 per cent, small bonds and sell them to our owo people, aud pay off the 10U-3 tletit ana thereby reduce the debt $12,000,000, and it a home debt. It would be a State I,.. n1 would be taken rapidly by ou own people. Agitation for the purpose of nullifying the law will only make matters worse ana will resnlt in fastening a heavier burden on us. I am for a reduction of the principal of the debt and for having it paid within time than 99 vears. This can be 4et if conservative men will unite. Wn.J. Sykks. President Garfield and Gen.

Sparta, Tenn,, April 8, 1881. ft. 1 ft - a Juiiwr atanaara: ince there is a 'air prospect of an early completion of the railroad from McMinnville to Sparta, men of enterprise, energy and capital are coming to our county for the purpose of making investments in the vast resources of this section. R. V. Roulett (the pioneer in the lumber business) agent for h. 13. Dunham & Co., was the first to make his appear ance among us. lie is now running five saw nulls, furnishing labor for 47 hands at these nulls, 43 hands unvin teams, 10 hands hauling lumber, 3 hands ciionpmg timber, 116 mules aud 32 yokes of cattle engaged in hauling umber, in addition' to quite a number of parties who are chopping, hauling and raiting logs to these mills by the job. Mr. Koulett says, m his long ex penence in walnut lumber, he has not seen any that was superior in quality to that found in our county. He is ex pending over $1,000 a day for timber and labor in our county. Another company, represented by ueo. L. lentecost, ot Warsaw, Ind., has made large investments in real es tate, water powers and lumber. He is now preparing to put up several steam saw mills for the purpose of cuttintr walnut, poplar, ash and cherry lumber to ship as soon as the railroad is finish ed. We need more such men. We have the finest white oak and hick ory timber in the world in almost in exhaustible quantities that will be a source of wealth at no distant dar. Our coal fields are still undeveloped, a description of which I will give you in my next. Yacop. Northwest Warren. Editor Standard: Farmers behind with their work. No corn plauted yet and pros pects unfavorable for planting soon. Wheat very backward in making its appearance. But little oats sown owing to the scarcity of seed. Fruit trees backward about blooming. Miss Willie Webb commenced a school ut Providence Monday morning. Hope she may have a good school. Mr. E. W. Brown, student of Short Moun tain High School, came home last Friday on a few days' visit. His frequent visits home are thought to have more than a paternal significance. Our young friend J. B. Jones, after a three weeks sojourn iu Texas, returned home Sat urday, satisfied to remain in old Tennessee. The Bald Knob Sunday Scliool is proving a success, both old and young seem to maul test a deep interest. Candidates for the fall publio schools are plentiful.
