Abott the Poll-Tai.
The report that the poll-tax i
being paid more Jargely tbi season
tban usual seems'lobe a vindication
of tba assertion of the counsel tor
the taxcollector in the poii-tai
eases, as it was called, lately de- j
cided by the Supreme Court, madej
in argument, that whenever the
negro felt an interest in voting be
would pay his taxes or they would
be paid for him by those desirous
of his vote, and therefore that tbe
requirement of paying taxes as a
condition of voting is of little value
as a protection against negro votes
Since McKinley's election there
has been a revival of the concern
of th negro population about
elections, and many will be led to
pay taxes with a view to qualifying
themaelvea to participate.
In thia connection is presented
to the readers of the Clarion-Ledger
th argument of Judge Campbell
before the Supreme Court in tbe
case mentioned, which presents
the grounds on which be contended
that the poll-tax was collectible by
seizure and sale of any property of
tbe person owing (he tax.
Tbe opinion of the court was
published when drlivered, arid
readera will be able from a perusal
of th argument to see why it was
held by many that nothing was
exempt from sale for taxes. The
argument shows clearly bow easy
it is for the legislature to make the
poll-tax collectible and thus com
pel payment by negroes of some ot
the heavy cost of educating their
children. The effect of the decision
is to free the negroes, for tbe most
part, from contributing to this ob
ject by making the poll-tax non-
collectible by law. The argument
showc that the legislature miy
change thi and make the tax col
lectible by altering the list in non
taxable property. The decision is
that non-taxable property cannot
be made liable for poll-tax. It is
for the legislature to say what
property is non-taxable and thus
avoid all constitutional objection
to the seizure and sale of any
property. Clarion-Ledger.

Prof Mendenhal, formerly con

last wt-ek, before the Peabody In
stitute of that city, told the rtory
of how the weight of the earth was
ascertained on the sacred mountain
of Jwpan, Fujiyama, by a party of
scientists, who made an expedition
from America several years ago.
Fujiyama was chosen as tho ob
jective pmnt oi the expedition for
a number of reasons, the principal
one being on account of its sym.
metrical form.
"Upon this magnificent cone,"
said Prof. Mendenhal, "we found a
shrine to which thousands of pil
grims journey every yearand wbicb
was in charge of a Buddhist priest.
We made delicate overtures to the
priest to allow us to work in the
shrine, which ho at first rejected
with indignation. Ultimately he
allowed us to use the place, and
our instruments were moved in.
In the centre of the templo was set
up our pendulum, and four days
were occupied in observing its
vibrations. never relaxing vigilance.
Tbe result of the expedition, as
sine proven by similar experi
ments, was to asoertain tbe correct
weight of the earth, which I may
give yon, approximately, as this:
