the State cannot levy a tax on im- ;

other chartered privileges, reapes a
reward of $10,000 annually; what - !
substantial difference can there be !
between giving the amount, through
this means, or by virtue of a tax on i
imports. Or, if a corporation owns
capital and property in Miss., on .

810,000, what is the difference be- ;
