C, to attend a meetinc: of the Southeastern Tariff association. Just as the train arrived, however, ho was handed a telegram re questing his immediate presence in South uaroiiua to adjust some insur ance losses, and he turned his face southward. Col. Jno. liobinson, who lias lust re- urned from Sampson countv, where he ield a farmer's institute, reports that the county alliance adopted resolutions setting forth that they would never, un der any circumstances, buy any goods from the American I ertilizer company, which had entered a test suit against tho State fertilizer tax.

The management would bo srlad to hold tho seats longer, but do not thiuk it proper to do so in tho face of tho great demand made for them. A 11 E POT DOT. The of Delay in the Commencement Work-. and W hy it in So. There is a delay in the beginning of work on tho new Union depot, and many questions are asked every day why it is. It was learned yesterday that nothing was lacking for tho beginning of work except tho ground plan. Some time ago each railroad company agreed to submit plans to the building commit tee, and from the plans so submitted, the best features were to be incorpora ted into a plan for adoption. The Kal eitrh cs uaston railroad company com pleted its plans some time ago and are ready to adopt whatever mav be agree able. The North Carolina division of the Richmond aud Danville company has not yet submitted any plans, and so it seems that this line is causing the delay in work. It is almost cruel to keep postponing this matter in the face of tho great anxiety of the general pub lic to see the work go forward. lings or business which come under po lice regulations. He said that lawyers, physicians, dentists and in fact men ct all callings and professions were citi zens who were conducting legitimate business, they paid their pro rata sharo of the general taxes, and there was no more justice in imposing a special tax on them than on blacksmiths, clerks, and persons of other "avocations. He thought that the tax ought to fall on all alike, or that it should fall on none. Ho stated that if the license taxes were taken off the business named in his resolution, the city revenue would bo reduced only 1,160; and that this amount could be realized by an almost imperceptible increase of tax on solvent credits and real estate. The resolution was referred to tho finance committee. Alderman Holding's position in this matter is so clearly right that no one, it seems to me, could be found to oppose it, if : "Do unto others as ye would that others should do unto von," count- at The spot nn citations; New futures 3G,000 bales.

No wonder! The attractions there are numerous and irresistible. Games are provided for those who like them. The great phono graph is there, and an interested crowd always surrounds it. There is continu ous happy music all the time. A beauti ful fountain sends up a silvery spray in a lovely pavilion on one side of the hall. There arc tricky and amusing monkeys on exhibition and"other novelties too nu merous to mention." The hall is superb ly decorated and is a great attraction in itself, lh-3 refreshments are gloriously delicious. The boys are giving a superb entertainment, and deserve a most lib eral patronage. Commutation ot Sentence. Governor Fowlo yesterday commuted the sentence of Jesse Brown from death to life imprisonment. Brown was tried for murder at the fall term of Craven court 1889, convicted, and sentenced to bo hanged April 11th, 1890. Tho con viction was purely on circumstantial evidence. The solicitor, the principal witnesses and a large number of citi zens stated that there was some doubt as to tho full guilt of the prisoner, and tor mcso reasons tne commutation was granted. friends who regretted that he did not extend his visit. Since leaving Raleigh, Mr. Kerr has graduated at the Boston School of Technology and made himself one of the foremost citizens of the State. Tho editor of the Chronicle had the pleasure of going through the big fac tory of the Kerr Manufacturing Co. on Monday. It is going to be one of the biggest things in all the South when finished. When the ponderous machin ery starts, we shall give our readers a description of it as an object lesson of wnat a orainy ana progressive young North Carolinian can do in his native State. Raleigh has been honored this week with a visit from Miss Daisy M. Ole man, M. D., who is the guest of Presi dent Holladay, of the Agricultural and Mechanical College. She is the daugh ter of Capt. L. L. Olemau, U. S. A., Commandant Peekskill Military Acad emy, who is also spending his Easter holidays with Col. Holladay. Miss Ole mau, M. D., is a very young woman, aud ha3 just finished her course in the Columbia Medical college. She is the third young woman who has graduated at that college. She spent part of yes terday and the day before going through tha female wards of the North Carolina Insane Asylum. She is a lady of fine sense, and is as beautilul as she is ac complished. She will take a post graduate course in new York next win ter, ana win tneu tane a course in Europe before practicing. Those Frivolous Prosecutions. The article in yesterday's Chronicle neauea "jcrivoious rrosecutions cre ated interest and comment. This paper av a. was informed during the day that Con stable Upchurch, while talking to her about the matter, had told the old col ored woman, who was the defendant, that if she didn't look out she would be in jail before two suns. This so intimi dated "Aunt Harriett" that she sought the Chronicle office and begged that no more be said about the matter. She said it would kill her to spend even one hour in lail. It was also reported that Justice Barbee, Defore whom the case was tried, had said he would stand a law suit before he would refund one cent of the "costs" collected from the old ivoman. Of course if tho defendent has no fur ther complaint of oppression, neither the Chronicle nor anybody else has any right to comment further upon the mat ter; but it may be said that the columns of the Chronicle are open to a full ex planation, and such explanation has not been made. Further, whatever may have.been the justice of the magistrate's decision in the case, it was radicaliv . . . . i wrong to try to stop complaint from "Aunt Harriett by threatening to put ner in jau.

The chamber of commerce banquet will be held on Tuesday evening, April 22nd. The committee in charge are ar ranging an attractive programme, aud will do everything possible to make the occasion one of interest and pleasure as well as of great value to the city. There is a general sentiment in favor of the banquet. It is believed that it legislation as important as the adoption or wise and just measures in the matter of taxation. Upon this, in small de- gree, tne weaitn, nappiness, ana even the morals of the pepie depend. The four following general maxims laid down bv Adam Smith cannot be too much kept in view: j First. The subjects ot every tate ought to contribute towards the sup- j port of the government as nearly as j possible in proportion to their respect- j lve abilities; that is, in proportion to ! the- revenue which they respectively ! enjoy unaer tne protection or tne j State. ! Second. The tax which each indi- j vidual is bound to pay ought to be cer- tain and not arbitrary. Tne time of j payment, the manner of payment, the ! quantity to be paid, ought to be clear 1 and plain to the contributor, and to i every other person. ' Third. Every tax ought to be levied at the time, or in tho manner, most i likely to be convenient for the contrib- j utor to pay it. lourth. h verv tax ought to be so i contrived as both to take out and keep j out of the pockets of the people as lit-1 tie as possible over and above what it brings into the public treasury of the State." "Equality of taxation," says John Stuart Mill, "means apportioning the contributions of each person towards the expenses of government, so that he shall feel neither more nor less incon venience from his share of the pay ment than every other person experi ences from his. This standard, like other standards of perfection, cannot be completely realized; but the first object in every practical discussion should be to know what perfection is." Now, I urihositatingly affirm that every maxim of Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill on taxation, as quoted above, is most flagrantly violated by this arbitrary license tax whfch Alder man Holding wishes to repeal.- Here is the ordinance: Capterl3, Sec. 19: Upon every law yer, physician, dentist, cotton broker, bill poster, street huckster, photograph er, merchandise .or produce broker, ice dealer, dealer in wood and coal, or either, insurance company or insur ance agency for every company repre sented, and every skating rink or shoot ing gallery, a license tax of ten dollars a year. Every person who follows any of the business vocations in the city as mentioned in this section without hav ing first obtained from the chief of po lice a license therefor, shall be fined ten dollars for every offense. Where is the justice of this ordi nance? Why arbitrarily impose an unusual license tax on certain professions, trades and callings to the exclusion of others? Is that what John Stuart Mills calls "equality of taxation ? Is that what Adam Smith meant when he said: "The sub jects of every State ought to contribute toward the support of the government as nearly as possible in proportion to their respective abilities ?'l No. Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill had noth- ' ing to do with the framing of that or- dinance. j But that is not all. When the sub- ! jects of this tax, ten dollars in hand go ' for th eir license, they are politely in-' lornied mat eleven dollars are reauired instead of ten; and get this little eem Baltimore Produce Market.
