THUKS1UY, DEC. 2, 1SS0.
H. A. LONDON, Jr.. Editor.
We notice that several of our ex
changes are urging a poll-lax qualifi
cation for voters. For several years
this has been urged and is no new
question, but no Legislature has yet
been found willing to propose such
an amendment to our State Constitu
tion. Our legislators; seem afraid of
it as much so as of the dog-law
and are not willing to risk their re
election upon it. "While no doubt a
majority of the members-elect of
the next Legislature are convinced of
the propriety and justice of this
measure, yet we do not. believe that
they will Aoie for it. We do not un
derstand how any fairmindtd man
can oppose it. Voting is a privilege
conferred iqion and not a light that
belongs to the citizen. It does not
seem jnst that those who do not bear
the burdens of the government should
enjoy its privileges. "We aie decided
ly of the opinion that the man who is
liable to poll-tax and does not pay it,
should not be allowed to vote." Of
course there are many persons not
liable to poll-tax, or sjecially exempt
ed, and tbey should be allowed to
-vote as heretofore, but when an able
bodied man is called upon to pay his
poll tax and refuses to do it, he ought
not to be allowed to vote with those
who do pay. This seems common
According to our existing laws,
one-fourth of the taxes collected from
polls is applied to the support of the
poor, and the remaining three-fourths
to the public schools. All of us will
admit that thess are worthy objects j
and tu-e entitled to all the money that !
the law intends them to have, and j
yet, because so manv persons do not
pav then poll tax, our paupers and j
r " 11
puonc bcuoois ai-c aepnvea oi a large ;
portion of their revenues. If this I
poll-tax qualification for suSrage was
enforced our paupers and public
schools would receive every dollar in
tended for them, for every man's tax
would be paid. TVe believe that this
qualification would not disfranchise
anvbodv, but would insure a certain
collection of the poll-tax. The tax
oi every man wouia be paia no man
would be deprived of his vote and
our paupers and public schools thus
be greatly benefited. Then, why not
adopt bo beneficial a measure 1
THE NATIONAL LIBERAL
This is the name of an associalion
that should receive the condemnation
of all God-fearing and decent people.
Their last annual Congrees was held
in the city of Chicago daring the
month of September, and a copy of
their proceedings has been sent us.
This League is conrposed of both
men and women, of Infidels, Free
thinkers, Free-lovers and all such
characters. To give an idea of the
purposes of the League we copy from
one of their resolutions the following:
-That aT laws in regard to marriage,
which should be a civil contract, and
in regard to divorce, births, and
burials, should be placed on a purely
secular and scientific basis, and have
their justification only in their use to
Suppose such sentiments should
prevail in our land what would be
come of the country ? And yet such
are the avowed sentiments of many
of the most enlightened and best ed
ucated men of the North : we say "of
the North because as yet the South
is "solid" against all such damnable
doctrines. Prominent among the
speakers at the late Congress of this
League was the notorious infidel, Bob
Ingersoll, who was recently intro
duced to an audience in such compli
mentary terms by Henry Ward Bee- j
ciier a pretended Preacher of the
Gospel! We trust that our people
of the South may ever remain "solid
against all these"" isims" that prevail
bo extensively at the North.
The names of several gentlemen
have been suggested for the position
of Speaker of the House of Repre
sentatires in our next General As
sembly, and among them we notice
that some of our exchanges have
mentioned in complimentary terms
the name of our distinguished county
man, Hon. John Manning. "VYe are
authorized, however, by that gentle
man to state that, while he duly ap
predates the compliment paid him,
ret he is not a candidate for thathigh
office, and we must add we at e pleased
that he is not, for we quite agree with
our esteemed contemporary, the An
son Times, in saying that he "could
do his State more service upon the
floor " The legal learning of such a
lawyer as Mr. Manning preeminent
ly fits him for tho position of Chair
man of the Judiciary Committee, and
his safe conservatism will render him
a moist prudent "Leader of the
House." We think without doubt
that in tins position he could render
his State far greater service than in
the Speaker's chair, and we doubt not
this is the opinion of all who know
the man and the duties of the position":
ELECTION TRUEGl LARI
Election irregularities some limes j
