SEC. 52 of the Uuvouue Act of lb'J7 is
"That it bhall he and it in herehy
made the duty of the bhtrilf of each
county in the SLate to make dilit-nt
iii'iuiry and re port to the judge at each
t-rm of the criiuiiMil court held in the
county following the time when the
license tax and taxes provided for in
schedules A, li and (J of this act bhould
have been paid as to w hether or not
Huch license taxes aiid other taxes have
been paid by all persons or corporations
liable for the same, and to make out a
li.-t of all delinquents. And it hhall be
made the duty of the ju lg !i t-ubmit

itor to the end that hiich delini ueiits

in the manlier ircvided m tne i,ext sec

It will be a painful aud tii-agreeable
duty to comply with this law . an it is
clear from its provisions that all per
sons who owe any tax whatever are
required to be reported by me. Sched
ule A is the provi.-ion for property and
poll tax. H-iiedule li for license tax,
etc , and s-ht dule C for railroads, etc.
As this law is entirely new. being for
the first lime p:.sed by th- Legiolature
of 1 give below, for the informa
tion of the public, the penalty in. posed
by law for failure lo pay laxee.
Sec. '' of the Kevenue Act of l-'Jl is
"That such person or coj porations
who are liuole to pay the license tix ol
taxes provided lor in si:heduh-s A. U
and C of this Act a.':d the Machinery
Act, arid shall faii to pay the same as
provided by law. shuil be guilty of a
misdemeanor, arid puni.-iie i by a fine
not exceeding five huddled dollar or

While I feel like n w ill he a great
surprise and a great hardship to indict
some of the citizens of McDowell county
for failure to jay their taxes, where
th-y are really unable to p.iy. still the
law is exj. licit and I cannot do less, as
a faithful tiicer. than to comply with
its plain provisions. All persons ow ing
me taxes aril who do not bettle will he
reported to the judge at the coming
term of the criminal court, and
from the above quoted provisions of
tbe law, it will be seen what the result
must be. 11. L. NICHOLS,
