There U no more Jit or cqoitnble manner
of raising revenue than by taxing money ut
Interct, It is n sneciea nf roperty that is
generally secure, and yields its owner an am
ple return, wi'li butlittlo or no labor on his part.
It cams lmn an income, week day and holt1
day, in rain or shine. The lender is gcticr
ally well to do, and tho liorrower in straitened
ciicuuistanccs To cvailo this tax is as liu
moral as the failure to e imply with any oth
f r law, and this year our assessors should see
that their whole duty is performed. As
guide to theui, ami for the information of all
interested, wo print the following opinion of
Judgo Klwcll in a cao recently submitted to
It is a well settled rule that in declaring
for offences againt penal statutes (where no
form is expressly given) tlio plaintiff is bound
to i-ct forth f p- cilically the fact on which
he relies to constitute tho offence. Uigelow
vs. .lolni'ou Vt John Hep. 428. All tho cir
cumslan.-e.i necessary to support tho action
imit be alleged. 1 Chitty I'l. 371.
The rtiod section of the net of 29 April
1814 1'amph. L. 497, merely declares what
property real and crsonal as well as what
chases in action shall bo subject to taxation.
The 3rd section of tho act of 22nd April
184G, Digest 1386, makes it tho duty of an as
sensor at tho timo of making an assessment to
rctiuiro of every jicrson.cvcry firm ive,so sub'
ject to taxation to deliver to him n statement
in writing or partly printed and partly writ'
ten showing tho aggregate amount of money
duo such person from solvent debtors, and al
no tho amount of all sharci of stock held by
The fourth section makes it the duty of
such person,firm &c , to make out and deliv
er to the assessor the statement required by
the 3d section within fifteen days after bolng
o required. In default thereof tho assessor
authorized to make out a statement of tli
amount upon which a tax should bo assessed
against such delinquent from tho b;st means
he may bo ablo to obtain.
Tha fifth section provides that if tho person
from whom such statement may be required
shall not exhibit and set forth in any htate
tnent made in pursuance of tho act the ful
and aggregato amount of his money and stock
he shall forfeit and pay tho sum of one hun
dred dollars.
Tho statute docs not require a statement of
all the personal property ot tha tax payer
No penalty is given for not rendering to tho
assessor a statement of the items or amount
thereof. The declaration in this case sets
forth that by reason of not giving to the ai
lessor a statement ot his personal property
and money loaned tho defendant incurred
penalty of one hundred dollars. In this TO'
spect tho declaration is fatally defective,
judgment should be given for the penalty
could not be known whether it was for
furnishing a statement of tho persoual prop
erty or of debts duo.
By tho statute the person from whom a
statement is required by the assessor has fif
teen days in which to render it before any ac
tion can bo taktn by tho assessor. The dec
laration in this case sets forth that tho defen
dant did not render a statement as he was
bound and required to do. It is not directly
averred that he was required by tho assessor
to render a statement. No timo is set forth
when ho was so required no length of timo
before bringing tho action is mentioned- the
allegation that alter being requested ho neg
lected to turoish tho statement as was his
duty to do.
Under tho rule of pleading upon penal
statutes this is not such a statement of the
facts and circumstances as will entitle tho
plaintiff to judgment.
Iu the view which I tako of the case it is
not necessary to decide whether a penalty is
incurred by not making a statement. 1 in
cline to the opinion that tho penalty for not
doing that is the risk which is run by the as
sessor making the statement too large and
that given by the 5th section is for an untrue
statement. I am of opinion that whether the
one view or the other be taken upon this sub
ject, there is no cause of action set forth in
the manner required by law. As the demur
rer is general and is sustained the defendant
is entitled to judgment.
And now March 31, 1879 judgment for tho
Defendant on the demurrer.
Br the Court.
What they Sought to Repeal.
The law which the Democrats in Congress
sought to repeal, and which the Republicans
held should not bo repealed, and thus made
an extra session necessary, is rather an ex
pensive luxury. Tho report of tho Attorney
General gives those figures for 1870 :
"There wcro 4,803 supervisors, at a cost of
16,410, and 11,010 deputy marshals, at a
cost of II 11, 01 2. Total cost, including cer
tain fees, in 1876, 275,29G. This money
was expended in tho following States :
New York flGfl 020
Pennsylvania 23 f)90
California 10 208
Illinois. 0 735
New Jersey 11 870
Massachusetts 2 083
It will be seen that out of $275,000 spent
in 187C, all but MC.000 was spent in cities of
the North.
And what did the people get in return ?
Not anything. Tho elections were no more
honest no more fair no more just, and no
better managed than under the existing State
laws. Sr.
General Dlx died last Monday night in
New York, At the age of 32 be was made
Adjutant General of the state of New York
by the Democrats, and three years later was
Secretary of State. In 1842 be was elected
to the Legislature, In 1845 United States
Senator, Secretary of the Treasury under
Buchanan, Minister to France from 1806 to
1809, and iu 1872 Governor of New York.
.He wrote several books, and his war record
was an unviable one. lie was born lu New
Hampshire la 1798.
Meeting of the Riot Losses Investigating
The committee to investigate the charges
of bribery and corruption made by Mr.
Wolf iu connection with the riot losses bill
met Tuesday morning, and decided to bold
sessions with open doors, to examine every
member of the House and the leading lob
byists under oath und to make thorough
work of tho matter. The first session for
the taking of testimony was held on Thurs
day evening.
A Baltimore man recently wrote to Her
bert Spencer for an explanation of tho para
doxical customs of tho Japanese, citing ex
amples as follows : "A picco of cord is twist-
I from left to right in tho process of manu
facture. A piano is drawn toward tho per
son using it. Tho teeth of a saw aro so 'set'
that it Is the upward pull which cuts. Their
books conimcnoo at what wo would call the,
end, turning tho loaves from left to right,
hue the lines ruo up mm down tho page,
instead of acroM, und the pages aie number
ed at the font. The faco of their clock moves
and tho hands are stationary. They say 'It
4 o clock, morning that it lacks four hours
of bring noon, while with in it i nlways so
much past the startim? point." Mr. Spencer
replied that tho question involves "n wider
raugo than at first sight appears," but declin
cd to express his viows, on tho plea of lack
of timo.
Jndge the Future by the Past.
What substantial argument can bo offered
for tho election of Gen. Grant to a third
term ? Will ho give tho country n better ad'
ministration than any other man who can bo
chosen ? What ground is there for such ex
pectation ?
Gen. Grant has served two terms. What
was tho character of his administration ?
Notoriously the most corrupt there lias
ever been in time of peace.
Wcro ho elected a third term, thcro
every reason to think wo snouiu nave inc.
oamo thing over again, only worse.
Some of his cnthusiatio supporters say
'Oh, what you say of the past is true, but
ho has learnt tho ropes now, and will novcr
bo so imposed upon again.'
Dut Ocu. Grant never showed any indis
iiosition to let corrupt persons have their way
with him. Thcro is the most painful reason
for doubting tho sincerity of his affected in
dignation when his bosom friends, liko llab
cock, were detected in shameless frauds.
Gen. Oraut, for a little while, pretended to
bo indignant, and greatly incensed -just as ho
did toward his brother-in law, Corbin, for his
intrigue with Fiak and Gould. But how
long was it beforo ho was staying at M:
Corbiu's house again ?
No : there would bo no reform under
Grant. It would bo a renewal of tho same
old spendthrift and corrupt administration
Is it such that tho country wants I A.
Tho '"nine million steal," which was cn
ginccred through the Pennsylvania Legist
ture in Gov. Geary's time, and was designed
to rob the sinking fund of the State of s9,
000,000 in securities for the benefit of the
Pennsylvania Railroad, fell at last under an
unexpected veto. Tho "four million steal,
engineered by tho samo power, intended
saddle the State witli the "Pittsburg losses,'
incurred during tho labor riots of 1877, has
failed in tho Ilouso in which it originated.
This marks a vast moial improvement in thi
politics of Pennsylvania. Tho Democratic
Stato Convention of 1877 declared that, un
til tho railroad companies "accepted tho Con
stitution of 1873 in good faith, they should
remain objects of tho utmost jealousy and
vigilanco to both Legislature and people,
and tho precept seems to have had some prac
tical value. It is monstrous that, whilo th
great corporation defies tho organic law, and
discriminates against tho business of tl
State to tho point of destruction in many
branches of industry, it should wear th
front ot brass, and offer to push through the
Legislature a bill providing a gift to it of
$4,000,000 from a treasury which cannot meet
tho demands of the public schools. Tho bill
is said to have been supported by one of the
most numerous and impudent lobbies ever
assembled by tho company. All the chiefs
and notables of the Treasury Ring, from
Kemblo and Magee down, were on the ground
to promoto tho steal, and even Senator Cam
eron abandoned his seat to go homo and help
on tho raid. It is something to be able to
say that for onco a Republican Pennsylvania
Legislature has stood firm against tho pres
suro of the combined forces of tho railroad
and tho Ring. Sun.
A bit of secret history illustrative
Gram's respect for civil authorities was giv
en in the close ot Senator Randolph's speech
In the Senate on tha 18th inst. After speak
ing of the bad uses to which an army can
be put when it is controlled by an ambitious
man, so trained is the army to obey orders,
Randolph gaye the following illustration
"Can ours be un idle warning to a free peo
pie that has seen and felt the usurping pow
er ? Will it bo said, sir, that no Presiden
of a republic will dare to long misuse tbi:
power ? I know to the contrary. I had tli
honor to deliver a message in 1870 from
Gov. Hampton to the President of the Uni
ted States, requesting him to withdraw the
troops from the State House of South Caro
lina, in deference to a decision of the Su
preme and highest court of tbat State. I
urged the importance of it with all the force
of language at my command. I told the
President that In the judgment of eminent
lawyers, the Governor then out of office by
the expiration of his term had not lawfully
invoked the assistance of Federal power, .in
asmuch as be bad mado no effort to convoke
his Legislature, though easily done, and ob
tain their action on a matter so vital ; that
the newly elected Governor desired the at
tendance of representatives of the people in
their State House, from which Federal bay
onets, as I myself saw, kept them; and
finally, tbat the conte-t being of purely
State concern, regaiding only the claim of
State officers, and these having been defi
nitely settled by the highest legal tribunal
that could ever take cognizance of the case,
the Supreme Court of South Carolina, I
hoped tho Federal forces would be promptly
withdrawn from the State capital. You
may imagine, sir, my astonishment and in
dignation when,in an angry tone and an un
civil manner, the President replied : "I
won't withdraw the troops. I don't care
that for the decision of the Supreme Court
and if I had any message to send to Gen.
Hampton it would be that his message to
me is an Impertinence."
"An impertinence, sir! for the Oovernor
of a State to communicate bis wishes, not
demand his rights as he might properly have
done, to the President of the United States!
An impertinence, Indeed I "Upon what
meat does this our CuMar feed that he hath
grown so great 1'
"No, Mr. President, we cannot make too
much baste to guard the liberties of freemen
everywhere in this broad land from chance
of blotting the pages of our history with a
repetition of the usurping act of a Presi
dent less than three years ago."

There is just now much political presiden
tlal talk nnd prognostication at Ibis secth

impression that the nomination of Gen

Siam. Mr Sickles, U. S Consul at Bang
kok, sends a dispatch describing the gor
geous oriental style in which the letter from
tho Supreme King of Siam to the ex-Presi
dent was presented. It contained an (invi
tation from his Majesty to General Grant to
visit the kingdom as a guest of the govern
mcnt. The letter was encased in Royal
purplo satin. The ennsu1 further announ
ces that the project of sending an embassy
from Siam to the United Sta'ei has been
agreeii upon. This will make the number
of oriental legations at Washington three.
The Chinese, Japanese, and Siamees The
Turkish legation has been, or will soon
be, discontinued. Why these countries
should send legations to Washington, or
we should send legations to these or any
other countries cannot be explained from
practical or economical standpoint. Our re
lations with foreign countries are commer
cial, and not diiilom ui-:. We need at a few
foreign capitals and laa'o cities uble com
merclal agents, but foreign nubas-ys are
useltss and semi barbaric appendage, Our
Minister to Turkey, is now in Tennessee,
our Rusiiiu Minister is in Italy and all

the press and the cable, have taken the man
agement of International sfiuirs out of the
hands of a few accomplished individual!
and modern diplomacy consists solely iu so
cial civilities and etiquette in which our
provincial, unaccomplished, self-made rep
resentatives make a deplorable bungling dis
play. Kurnpeau countries, as a rule, send
to Washington their least attractive and
least accomplished diplomatists. They
know that they will have nothing to do,

regarded by the average European gentle
man as a kind of banishment from the cen
tre of civilization to tho frontier or barbar
ism. They make little distinction between
the United States, South America, aud
Mexico, and would rather have "a year
Europe than a cycle in Cathay." Of course
tho average European view of the United
States is not the correct one, aud they are
gradually learning something about us on
the other side of the water, but their educa
tion would be much facilitated if insterd of
the useless embasador we should have only
able commercial agents or consuls.
Mr. Wilson, the United States consul at
Brussels, iu a dispatch to the Deparlmeut of
State, reports the meeting of the Belgian
Society of political economists, at which the
commercial policy of tho United States was
ireely Ulscus-'eu. More or less desire was
manifested to return in Europe to the pro
tective policy. The significant problem
that formed the staple of discussion was how
to overcome the almost boundless resources,
agricultural and mineral, of the United
States. It is not deemed practicable to affix
a high tariff on American products. Tho
large increase of exports from tho United
Slates can hardly be c.ecked by any restrict
ive measures. A reduction ut wages seems
the last resort.

J. Milton Turner, the colored ex-Minister
to Liberia, tells a St. Louis reporter that his
lawyer is now drawing up papers for a col

largo tract of land in New Mexico and to
give every negro a four-acre lot within the
tract. Turner thinks when tho negro can
make a living in the South ho had better stay
thcro, as a ho is better cotton-pickor than tho

Common Sense In Tf mpe rante.
Perhaps there are no more conscientious
reformers than tho temperanco men who
reach the doctrine of total abstinence from
tlmulatlng beverages. Most nf them talk
well and work hard. Tho efforts of many nf
them are followed by the signing of tern-
eranco pledges by thousands of persons
ho wcro habitual Inebriates. It would be
delightful to hopo that all these signers
would keen the promise they make. Un-
ileasant facts show, however, that a great
many who sln lack the strength to make
their proml-es good, Perhaps one of the
lllliciiltles Is that they promise too much
It seems almost contrary to nature that a
thoroughly rum-soaked sinner should, on
tearing a temperanco speech, suddenly
acaulro such a mastery over the habits
which have for years mastered him as to be
come n total abstainer, The poor fellow Is
constrained by the eloquence nf tho temper
ance orator to experieiico a seme of utter
wrelchcdne-s. He files for relief to tho only
refuge the timperance man offers him, which
s the signing of the abstinence pledge. He
expects tho act ofs'gnlng to work a miracle,
and is disappointed becatie it does not.
Then remorse takes possession of his soul.
Somebody offers to treat htm to a drink. He
accepts the civility, and is more remorseful
and more wretched than ever. Much of the
trouble lies in tho prevalent tutom of
treating." It is against tills time-honored
custom that tho new temperance movement
llrects one of Its heaviest batteries. It does
not ask a man to do Impossibilities, but it
presents to lilm the absurdity of drinking
intoxicating beverages just becaii'o some
inconsiderate person who has noclaimson
his friendship, asks him to. This 'treating'
is at best queer business. In some circles to
refuse an offered drink is regarded as an in
suit to him who offers It. No matter how
full of drinks the drinker may be, he is ex
pected to take another drink which he does
not want and for which he has no roo n. In
somp parts nf the country to refuse a prof
fered drink is to risk one s life.
Tho new movement is started in New
York by eminently respectable people who
know what they are about and who have the
indorsement of some of the wisest head;
and warmest hearts in the community. The
great meeting at Chickering Hall showed
what they meant to do. Other meetings
aro following in tha principal cities. The new
plan is not founded on whims or mere en
thusiasm, but on an intimate acquaintance
with human nature. Extremists may de
nouuee it as partial and incomplete, but it
is none the less worth a fair trial. Old plans
have been tried sufficiently to show that
theories which are in themselves unobjec
tionable do not always work well when put
In practice. Let the new plan have at least
a chance and seo what will come of it.
