- This, it will be obscrvod, is just
tS'U C7 short. Now, what nro the
Commissioners to do in this dilcma?
',Tho Board cannot turn nroundand take
that sum out of tho County Troasury
and hand it over to tho State, because
Ibis would bo using tho tax raised
'from roal estate, and against the oct
regulating tho quoslion. . To raise tho
! means to satisfy the State's demand
'the Hoard was compelled to raise tho
valuq of tho personal proporly in
tlioso townships whore the average
value of horses full below 835 and
cows less than $20. To illustrate fur
ther : In Bcccaria 25 por cent was
, added to horses and cows, from the
fact that the former averaged but $82
.and the latter $15. In Bull, Guolich,
Morris, I'enn and Piko, about tho
(snmo on horses, whilo tho cows wcro
about right, except in Guolich. Tho
lowest average was in Bloom, $72,
and Burnsido $75. Jheao wcro about
'83 per cent, too low and had to be
raised in 'order to produce equality.
, , It will Lo noticed by tbo table that
tho a vertigo valuo of cows in two
'third of the districts ranged about
$20. Vi hero they averaged but $15,
the Board was compellod to add 83
The number of oxen was so small
that it was deemed unnecessary to
' fix a standard, and tho Board acccptod
flhem as returned by tbo nssossors.
.Buggies, carriages and watcbos
ilcpond upon too many contingencies
to arrive at a propor valuo without
'seeing tho proporty.
The aggregato valuo of professions,
trades and occupations nearly amounts
to that of bon.es, whilo the di-tcrimina-,tion
and inequality is far greater.
; To illustrate i Tho 111 taxablos in
.Jordan township average but $,'(0,
j whilo they average $72 in Boggs and
170 In Brady. If allowed to remain
o by the Board the 131 taxables in
( llio formor township would pay but
2U Cl county tax, while a similar
number in Boggs would be compelled
to pay $101 62 and in Brady $107 10;
thus compelling tho latter to pay noar
' ly four times the tax the formor do,
and live just as comfortable A eiti-
' ion in Knox would only psy 28 cents
"cents county tax, while those in Gi
rord would bo obliged to pay 51 cents
.early double if the Board had
not equolitod the work of tho assos-
Wo believe it is tho dosiro of nil,
commissioners, Assessors and tax
payers, to bring about equality In tax
ution, and we lay most emphatically
mat tins in a duty imposed on all, in
taw as well ni morale, but it is ono of
.the hardest things in tho world to
bring about. If tbo assessors would
assess horses and nil otbor property at
' its valuo the equalization would bo a
moll matter on tho part of the Com.
missioficr, but the policy of a low vol.
. nation destroys all rules and throws
. everything out of gear, and confusion
and much labor and wrong is tho ro.
;oH. To illustrate, toko the aggro-
gate number of horses ns shown by
. the tablo, 4,652, and divide them into
the oggregnto value, $I1,7K, and
' U produces an avernce of $!)!. Now.
' this would haro been the standard for
,jlUoi Commissioners lo adopt if it
1 would lave , raised tho : required
amount of State tax. Tho 1!MI horses
in llastbn, which avcrnro $1 1 1, would
'te reduced to $91, and tbo 08 horses
la Bloom, which average $73, would
be rained to 891. This would produco
qnallty, bat at throo mills it will not
raiso Stalo tax enough, llcnw, tho
'Board was compelled to raiso all tho
i The Act of Aeiomblf regulating
'iwienftmcnls nmkes it as obligatory on
'.the Commissioners to bring about
.equality as it doos assessors to asscs
.ud rolurn tho proporly. But the
'somolaw prevents tho Board from
' lowering tho value of any property
"to bring about cijuuiily when It is no
torious to. everybody that proporty is
not assessed at its real valuo. ....
This law hfl rftlo applies lo lands,
'horses, town, oxen,' brwicn arriajjc
,i-' 1 ... ;
' We again cull tho reader's altou
lion to the following points. A I'lunco
ut tho table will show that iu Bloom
and llustun tho arurugo valuo fur
horses was the lowest ($78 in; the
former) and the lilghest,'($lU Ih tho
latter,) and bad the Board proceeded
to assess thd tax upon tho property at
rotnrncd by the "assosnors the oouniy
and slate lax on . tho C8 horses iu
Bloom would havo been just $50 00,
whilo the ownori of G3 horses In llus
ten would have been compelled to puy
$75 48, or just 50 per cent, moro tax
on the soino, number' of horacs.
Would thut havo beon 'right f Would
that bo equality f - ' -
But to concludoi .After tho Com
missioners spont about throo weeks in
passing over tho thirty-two duplicates
tlicy proceeded to assoss tho tax, and
after tho duplicates wcro mado out
and footed the lux amounted lo 82,
200 55 about $09 moro than tho sum
called for by tho State. The exoner
ations will, howovor, more than con
sume this amount. In the futuro
there will be no State tax on personal
property. ' ", , " ' ,

Legal Traokdi. Tbo third trial
of Edwin S. Stokes, for tho murder of
Jamos risk, Jr., was concluded in Now
York, on Thursday last. He was
found guilty of manslaughter in the
third degrco, and sontenced to the
ronitcntiory fur four years. Ho will
probably bo out in a fow mouths look
ing for another victim. A grcator
farce than this trial was never played
on any stage. This is tho way two
thirds of tho murderers nro deposed
of by tho advocates of capital pun
ishment, who vohemontly insist that
all should bo bung who eommlt mur
der. Now muko tho penalty for mur
der imprisonment for life, and nine
tenths of that class of offondcrs will
be abut out from society, and the com
munity rendered safe. Tbo man or
woman who commits murder, is an
unfit member of society, and should
never bo given an opportunity lo re
peat their crime outsido the walls of
a prison. Yet, as Ibe law ia now ad
ministered, murderera are turned
looso upon society in a low" years.--
And this is what is called vindicating
tho law, and punching criminals and
rendering society more safe. .
Mori Good Times. The suspen
sion of the wenlthy banking firm of
n m. M. Lloyd & Co., of Alloonn, and
the numerous banks with which be
was connected, on Thursday last,
caused a sensation in business circles.
Mr. Lloyd is connected with twenty
three banks, and his failuro is rather
of a wholesale character. In this
section of tho Slato we may name Al
toono, Tyrone, Oscsola, Kbensburg,
lienors and Hollidaysburg,whero un
til recently ho was doing a thriving
business. Now all tho banks with
which ho was conncclod, including
Now York and Philadelphia areclossd,
and depositors do not just exactly
know when thoir funds will bo re
turned to thorn. Such are the results
of an exclusive paper curroncy.

Tho Philadelphia Press of tbo 28tb

To tell only halt the truth, is as
potent sometimes as a square false
hood. To demonstrate this wo will
quote from the midwife who prosidos
ovor tho columns of tho Timtt. This
truth telling, (!) refined, shrewd and
intellectual giant, Inst wook, in allud
ing to us, perpetrated the following 1
"W ciT0 him eredil of feting inuri enough to
ouit Mr. llradle'f out of tn euiuuiiasionera' udioo
tt ulirj of $H00 nj bttttp in t $1,600. Thli
wi don to mv to tbo lox-poon of tbt oount
$200 by pulling it into bit puektt."
Thut Mr. Bradley received S300 is
true and that the present Clerk gets
$1,000 is also true. But if tho ecribe
in question desired to stato a fact, for
tho bonoGt of his readers, ho should
havo romarlcod that the passage of
the infamons registry law by tho
Radical Legislature in 13C9, noarly
doubled the clerical duties in overy
Commissioners' offlco in the Stato, and
yet tho board only pays 200 moro
for clerical sorvicos than previous to
tho paHsago of that act. That would
bavo been telling tho whole truth.
But from tbo maltor found in tho col
umns ot: the lima, it lo quite plain
that tho editor dovotes but little time
in search of the truth.
Our now Tilion, also, sooms lo an
noy bim wonderfully. This is not
strango. II 0 hails from a locality
whoro snoh structures are not half so
formidublo, and escapos are n timorous,
and buildings of that kind aroa torror
to evil doers, anyhow. They annoy
us no moro than a c hurch or a school
house. We bono this low scribblor
will turn his hugo talents in a differ
ent direction. II is persistent efforts
at libel, defamation and falsehood aro
a disgrace to tho profession. Wbat
this low scribblor desired to impross
upon tbo minds of bis roadurs was,
that (ho present Board of Commis
sioners wore paying $200 moro for
clerk hiro thnn thoir predecessors.
But with son&ihlo roon tho doception
is too apparent, and in his attempt to
libel the Commissioners he only ex
poses hi own ignorance or muliee.

Iho comments on the pnnio of a por

dearly. Sharpness and boldness have

Paper money Is si false pretersa.-
It deals in big names for little things.
It gives the appearance of wealth
where wealth is not. It flatters a
man with the ides of growing wealth,
while larger and larger figures are re
quired to measure the same value.
Kxtravagance and sensationalism soem
to follow nuttirully from it, just as to-
callod sterling qualities seem to be
educatod by the use of roal vataes.
Tho motto of paper monoy is that
no well stack to is as good as tho truth.
Mon aro more consistent than they
know in transferring their notions
from ono department to another.
It bas been said that properly of
immense value has btnn transferred
by a nod or a wink on pure trirat.
This way of doing business seems to
usof doubtful benefit. Thoncarorwe
come to legitimate and snfo modes,
the more striet are the legal forms
The nearer we go to irumblini; and
stealing, the grcnler is tho eloment of
"honor" in transactions. Stock deal
ing is gambling only by a kind of ex
aggeration, but in departing from law.
It sots up a code of its own and en.
forces it by the limited standards and
the public opinion of a coterie. If we
still hold to tho old-fushiond notions
of the utility and universality of law,
wo must rcco,-nise in everything which
escapes law and seeks refuge in limited
codos a decline in publio cbaractor.
Vnder paper money tho most profit
able form of businoxs is speculation In
pnper values of all kinds. Money is
made by manipulating the slock of a
corporation rather than out Of its in
dustrial oporalions. Hence stock spec-
uiutiona multip'y, wtnie legitimate in
dustry is comparatively neglected.
Hen whose minds lull under the do
minion of this stato of things are edu
cated to care for paper names more
than for actual production. Thoy
study stock maneuvers rather than
industrial laws, and dovelop refine
ments in Stock Kxchange manipula
tion rather than business enterprise.
It seems to us tbat all this bus very
important effects effects which are
open to dally observation on the
moral of the business community.
tndcr paper money, with active spec
ulation and rising prices, tho opportu
nities for thoso who have capital
ough to enable thorn to Incur debts
are very great. Tho temptation lo
an who bold trust lunds to "borrow"
thorn is enormous. All fool it; all
but the strongest fall under it. When
tbo shrinkago comes wo nro enabled
lo inter, from tho iiu rubor who are
detected, bocauso they speculated
recklessly or too long, something as
to tho number who havo succeeded,
and hnvo replaced thoir borrowingi
We have seen it mentioned that only
a score or so of casos havo been dis
covered during tho panic. ' Wo have
not counted them. Vo wait for some
sign that the lUt is full. Tho amount
of dishonesty which has beon practiced
can only bo rudely guessed from the
cases which come to the knowlodge
of tho publio. Trobably a man who
hns converted trusi funds to his own
U80 with succors hns been more do
raoralizod than 0110 who bas failed and
Tbo financial strokos which tho
(lovcrnmont of' tho nation hns made
sinco the oxielcnco of tho paper money
aro a largo faotor in the decay of poli
tics, of which wo sco the evidence on
every sido. Tho publio conception of
tho proper office and functions of Gov
ernment tins boon distorted by the
habit of socing it moddlo with finance
and currency, and expocting it to do
so. The Government owes no sinnjl
shiiro of Its loss or publio roopcel and
confldonco to its financial mistakes.
Tho papor money involves Govern
ment in tho necessity of acting,, and
whether it does one thing or another,
it does harm, becauao it is meddling
with what is none of its business.
Political abuses ore not all due to pa
per monoy. No ono would nfflrin it.
But pnper money is a largo factor in
tho mischief. All this is not to any
that the same evils might not have
