Whatever may have been tbeorsti
e-t views upon the subject, those
who have see Its practical operations e
have become sworn opposents of It, e
lenonneing sad rajecting It from se
every possible standpoint Under its
operations, the personnel of the oleo- lO"
urate sad the votng strength of a
parish become profound crets lock- mi
ed In the brests of the sheriff sad
his friends. The opportunity for "
fraud and the oecasion for personal st
dash.s at the polls are multiplied o
manifold, under its wretched provis- nO
ions. It is the most undesirable, uon- il
just, unequal, menacing, dangerous
sad destructive element that could I
possibl/ be fastened upon our politi- d
cal system. The argument that be- c
cause acme have paid the tax while so:
others have not and :herefore the gm
former have earned and paid for Bu
privileges that they have a right to t
enjoy, is absolutely without founda- le
tion. Every dollar paid was a debt vl
lue, under the law, and it went to for
the support of the public schools In th
the locality where it was collected
and neither injustice nor injury have me
been done the parties who paid. a
We oppose the tax, as a prerequi-- an
site to voting, and favor the submis- du
sti
sion of a constitutional amendment
for its repeal, fur every reason that sI
hap ever been ofered, and we es- ae
pecially favor its repeal for the tol- tb
lowing thirteen good and sucient an
reasons: do
1. It ixes a money standard for ta
citizenship and has a repulsive ko
$-mark for an emblem. a
2. It xes a cash money basis for b
the value of votes of i.00 a head.
3. Instead of thwarting and pre s
venting professionalism in politics, it m
fosters, aids and assists it, by making A
the play of politics a surer and more of
certain game.l
4. It gives to the sheriff of the a
several parishes power and control
suriciet to dictate parih politics.
5. It has utterly failed as are
venue producer for the publin schools. i

From 1899 to 1900 the iacrema ma l
polls paid was l13,122, while from or
1900 to 1901 it was only ~7 m6.
6. It opens the gate to unlimited
frud, the poll tax nrelpt being the t
eafeguard to ous rights of ditienship g
ad at'the sime time being bhedged T
about by no more sanctity than a
mere receipt, easily subject to ouene

7. As mUatter of public poicy,
it was of doubtful wi.dom and ex

that the (onstituttioal C~uonvention i

it an eception to the other article of
