About Road Tax,
The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has
rendered several decisions of peneml Intnr.
est in the matter of road tax. Tho right of
rarmers to work out their road tax has
been generally conceded, but supervisors
In a fow townships Insist that the tax must
ne pain in money. A test case has Uecn
decided In favor of taxpayers, and their
right to work out their tax distinctly nnd
finally affirmed. In other cases Collectors
oi the road tax have claimed a commission
should bo collected on the nnrt worked out
as well as that paid into thu township
treasury. The Supreme Court decided that
all claims for such commissions should be
rejected, the working out of a tax impos
ing no labor upon the collector or treasur

plant (shade TrecH,
A writer iu one of our , agricultural ex
changes says : Tho importance of shade
trees should under no circumstances be
overlooked by the farmer, and where there
Is a vacant spot, where these gifts of na.
turu can be given a location, it should be
done. Now Is the time to prepare for
spring planting, and this should bo accom
plished as soon as the frost is out of the
ground, and before the buds of the spring
trees to be transplanted begin to swell.
They can be used for both utility and orna
ment around farm dwellings, and they may
be planted near thu borders of cattle yards,
thus affordlug tho luxury of shade for
domestic animals in very warm weather.
Iu pastures trees can be set out In groups
for the like purpose, especially when the
fields arc to remain permanently In grass.
Thu cost is so unimportant that tliero Is no
excuse for Its omission by any farmer.

Reduction In Price.
In the publication business, such as the
Columuian has been engaged iu, It Is not
ndvisable nor profitable to have much stock
on hand, of any kind whatever. "Prompt
sales and quick returns" Is n sound busi
ness molto We find ourselves with a con
siderable portion of our edition of the
"History of Columbia County," still un
sold, and in ngrcemcnt with the idea abovo
expressed, deslro to put them upon tho
market at such prlco as will be satisfactory
to all parties. The book has hcretoror
been sold at less price, comparatively,
than most local histories ; but our agents
have usually reported to us that the price
was in the way of extensive sales, although
tho book was in good demand, and could
be readily sold at some reduction.
The commission allowed by us to our
agents reduced the book to us, to as low a
price as we conld afford to sell it. In or
dcr therefore, that thoso who want the
book may now procure it at such rate as
they have expressed a readiness to buy It,
and thus the buyer have the advantage of
what we have heretofore paid to p.gents,
tho prico of the book will hereafter be, as

charters. Wo nro iinncqunlntod with the
facts nnd clrcumstnnccs attending tho np.
plication of tho people of Orangevllle, so
will havo nothing whatever to say concern
ing their ense. Wo do desire, however, to
correct several misstatements of facts con
cerning tho application from Catawlssa i
and, In doing this, let It bo understood Hint
thcro Is no disposition to censure tho cmU
ncnt nuthor of the nrtlclo, who would lhavn
no Interest, nnd much less, any Inclination
or desire to state what was not strictly cor.
rcct. His Information hns evidently como
from those most interested In opposing the
borough movement, and has cither been
collected In a grossly careless manner or
with nn Intention to wilfully misrepresent
the facts for tho purpose ot misleading tho
It Is not correct that the opposition camo
mainly from cltucns ot tho township out
side of tho proposed borough, Every ono
who has any reliable Information concern
lng tho borough movement hero knows
that It was mainly opposed by tiz individ
uals, nil of whom llvo within the limits of
the proposed borough, and that thero was
only one man In tho township who took
any decided Bland with tho opposition,
while on tho other hand a mnjorlty of the
leading citizens In tho township have ex
pressed themselves ns being In favor of In
corporation. The township of Catawlssa, outside the
limits of tho proposed borough, would con
tain 14 square miles or 8900 acres of terri
tory, nnd would not be left In tho form of
a shell or crescent. Tho Western bound
ary of tho proposed borough Is the Susquc
hannn river, which Is also tho boundnry
line or tho township j and the southern
boundary of tho proposed borough is, for a
considerable distance, the line between
Catawlssa nnd Franklin townships, and
when It leaves the township line It follows
tho baso of a high mountain a natural
boundary the remaining distance, so that
the proposed borough is taken from the
corner of the township In a manner that will
not Inconvenience nny one in any respect.
If tho borough Is erected there will bo
about 85 resident land owners left In tho
township with enough nonresidents who
own properties thero to make the number
100, and some of these non-residents own
the largest nnd most valuable farms in the
township and consequently are among the
heaviest tax payers there. Somo of these
very persons nro most atrnngly In fnyor of
a borough strange and startling ns it may
appear to the opposition. These citizens
of tho township will only be obliged to
maintain 21 miles of road outside of th
proposed borough limits, Instead of 30
miles as erroneously stated In the article be-
1 fore referred to. There nro only 20 miles
in the whole township ns now constituted
and (j miles are within thu llmlls of the
proposed borough. The foregoing stnte
mcnts, It seems, would show very clenrly
that tho parties who are most earnestly op
posing the present movement to Incorpo.
rate the town of Catawlssa are not sincere
in what they say or do, or they would not
resort to misrepresentation nf facts. They
pretend to present n new plan, ostensibly,
to incorporate the whole township of Cnta
wissa, when in fact and at heart tho whole
opposition nre unfavorable to Incorpora
tion of any kind, unless their words and
actions go for nought, It is a plan which,
if waited for and followed, means nerer to
incorporate. It is a last resort on behalf
of the opposition, the purpose nnd design
of which Is to dissuade the publlc-spirited
citizens from making a much needed im
provement In their town hcreahd now
which the opposition fears is becoming
formidnblo and which they know will soon
be inevitable. It is a cunningly devised
scheme by which they hope to mislead the
doubtful nnd unwary citizen nnd cause
him to abandon the well-bcguu project al
together. Be not deceived or misguided
by this new devlco of the opposition. We
havo statutes prescribing the manner for
tho Incorporation of boroughs which have
been practiced successfully and effectually
almost time out of mind -we have a town
that is much too large to be well regulated,
or regulated at all, by township govern,
mcnt wo have a majority of the freehold
ers residing within the limits of the pro.
posed borough who nro heartily in favor of
incorporation why theu sit here in the
mud and filth and wait for legislation that
may never be agitated or enacted ? Special
legislation, such as Incorporated tho Town
of Bloomsburg, Is prohibited by the new
constitution and If ever "a general permls
slvo law," such as contemplated by Mr.
Buckalcw, should bu passed, the only
mode of procedure to incorporate under
such a law will be just the same as now,
viz : by petition of a majority of the free
holders to tho court of the county, conse
quently nothing whatever will be gained
by waitlug, while on tho oilier hand, the
longer Incorporation Is delayed the more
expense will attend thu grading and regu
lation of streets.
So, let the citizens of Catawissa who are
most interested In tho building up and im
provement of their town, move right for
wurd In this matter and have (heir town
incorporated and then they will bo in
proper shape to be benefited by nny new
legislation that may be enacted for the bet
ter regulation ol Incorporations of this
