The law recently passed by the legis
lature relating to the payment of <K:CU !
pation or voting tax by non property j
holders, will prove a great inconven- j
ience to collectors of taxes in rural dis
tricts. The law was made to prevent
politicans from paying the taxes of
voters in order to receive their votes.
It has been the custom for ward politi
cians to secure the names of large num
bers, of voters who were likely not to
attend to their taxes in time to secure
a vote, and on the last day for the pay
ment of taxes to pay for all whom he
believed he would be able to handle.
The new law will compel the collector
to refnse payment from any but the
taxable without a written order from
the same, which other order must be
kept ou file. This applies to taxes of
non property holders only.—Ex.

While preparations for a labor demon
stration were being made at Leechlnirg
Maj. Beale met R«v. L. M. McDer
mott of the Baptist church and asked
him if he was satisfied with what he
was doing. The minister replied that he
was more than satisfied to defend the
down trodden miners. One word led to
another, and finally Mr. McDermott
stated that it was his pleasure to defend
the laboring people from the
operators, who were simply robbing
them and would continue to do so.
Beale demanded to know if he was to
be called a thief.and Mr. McDermott re
plied: "if yon are taking from your mi
ners without a fair recompense, yes."
Maj. Beale immediately struck McDer
mott a stinging blow on the side of the
face, and the minister, without offering
to lift his hand, asked him to "smite
the other cheek."
Maj. Beale went before a justice of
the peace at once and paid his fine.
