In Texas it is provided that in municipal elections to determine the assumption of debt or the ex jienditure of money, no person can vote who does not pay a pro jK rty tax in such municipality.

An anti-grant man, says the Headlight, recommends as a meth od of settling the grant-title (pies tion. that all such lands be taxed as other lands are taxed, and if the taxes are not paid that they be sold under a law that will enable the sheriff to give a valid tax deed He desires to know whether that would not reach the difficulty. That depends. If by "such lands" are meant the lands includ ed in unconfirmed grants, we as sure our correspondent that the ti tle to such lands is in the United States.

But it is distinctly provided iu theapiili- cation that the stone will be re ceived and set by the applicant without any charge on the Govern ment.
