Imposes Tax Of One jiollar Upon Dogs, Bachelors And Justices of the Peace In Henderson County. . v It seems that local measures, car rying no political provisions, propos ed by. the representative of a' county have easy sailing in the present Leg islature. Recently the republican re presentative from Surry got -what he wanted and more for his county rin a free-school text - book measure in troduced and dispatches J rom, Raleigh on 'Thursday relate . the story' of Hen derson' representative in somewhat a similar tale, by tha. passage of hla bill taxing dogs, bachelors and Jus tices x)t the peace. The following re port of the incident' is taken from the News and Observer report of the house proceedings: - "There was an unexpected absence of debate on the bill of Judge Ewart taxing justices of the peace, bachelors and dogs in Henderson county. Aside from Judge Ewart's speech favoring its passage the only incidents . were the more or less embarrassing interp gatories which. poured in upon him. Judge Ewart prefaced, his argument by expressing his profound gratifica tion at the signal favor the committee had done him . in-reporting -.his bill favorably. ' He had not introduced it, he said, as a joke. In Henderson coun ty, . there were ' more pretty ' women than anywhere else in the world, many coming there from all parts of . the world to enjoy its scenery, and cli mate. There were entirely too many handsome unmarried men there, and a tax of a dollar a head per annum on these bachelors would tend to eith er decidmate -their ranks or replenish the county treasury for the beneflt;of school children of those who had been patriotic enough to marry. Dogs, he declared, literally infested the coun ty. Sheep xaising had been practical ly abandoned on account of their prowling - depredations and midnight attacks oh the sheepfold. Birds' nests were destroyed and the complete de struction of, quail by them was only a question of time. The eggs were high, but not high enough to escape their sucking mouths. Fleas and hydrophobia- were scattered " abroad by them, and most of the dogs. - were, a constant menace to life; ; liberty- and property and a general nuisance. He excepted some dogs and said his dol lar tax would not hurt them.-whi'e he hoped ' it would cause a ' thinning out of the ranks of the others.- Mr. Connor: You- do not put dogs and bachelors on all fours, I hope." Mr. Ewart: "Certainly not, unless they go that way." (Laughter.) - Continuing his remarks, Judge Ewart -reached the justices of the peace of his county," and reached for them. He said there were over a hun dred in the county. Most of them were appointed by the Legislature because they never could have been elected by their constituents. Many of them could not write and some of them could not read. The State gave them a dollar and a half law book every other year, the pages of which most of them never turned, and besides this1 they were exempt from several public service, duties, including working the roads, and should be glad for all this to pay a dollar a year back into the treasury. Mr. Doughton: "How many magis trE.i'oi did you appoint forHenderscn county in 1895, when you were a mem ber of that Legislature?" Mr. Ewart: "Twenty-five. Justices of the Peace then were appointed by the ' Legislature until elected by the people. In that Legislature I intro duced a bill exempting 19 counties with negro majorities from the elec tion of magistrate law. I fought for it in the committee and later on the floor. But I wag defeated, and I have often before said that I was as asham od of many things that Legislature did as anybody could be. (Applause.) But there are too many dogs and-too many justices of the peace In my coun ty." Mr. Ray: "You do not put magis trates and dogs in the same cat egory do you?" Mr. Ewart: "If the gentleman from Macon will examine my bill, or if he had listened attentively to my re marks, he would have found that no reference whatever has been made to a cat or cats. I only desire that the three' articles specifically enumerated in my bill be subjected a reasonable tax, and in truth the members of this House will agree with me." ; : Mr. .Connor offered an amendment making Hamilton X. Ewart a justice of the peace. Sneaker Dowd Tuled it out of order since law forbade one man boldi1 two offices of emolument.

The cotton crop, with its seed, now approaches. $1,000,000,000 in value a year, and yet that amount is less than 40 per cent of the total value of all agriclutural products' of the South, $730,000,000,. for instance, being the yaule of 1,104,000,000 bush els of cereals harvested in 1910.

Ttom the sawdust and waste, alcohol of. 1S8 per cent profit is made today by the Wood Waste company of Georgetown. ! In view of the general interest in the subject, A. L. King offers the fol lowing information relative to the success-of the-innovation: The method by which the juice from the sawdust is trahf onned Into alcohol of a high grade is known to one .man only, G. H. Tomlinson, , a Canadian,' who discovered the process. The plant at Georgetown is operated by the E. T. DuPont de ttemous Pow der, company, , and Mr. Tomlinson is. manager.
