ANSON AND DAVIE FENCE LAW.
Cain vs. Commissione rs ot Davie coun
ty. - - '
The Crenerat Assembly alits pession
in 1881 passed an act intendedy as ex
pressed limits, title, f to preventive stock
from running atlarg&in the counties' of
Davie and - Anson, by erecting a fence
around their boundaries," the fifteenth
section of which is in these words:
WheHever a majority of the! quali
fied voters of said counties, 6r any
township thereof. 'as appears by ;the re
turns of votes cast for trie various elec
tors of President of thiB United (States;
at the last Presidential election, shall,
by petition duly signed, signify to the
board of county commissioners of
Davie and Anson counties their ap
proval of the provisions of this act,
that thereupon the provisions 0f this
act shall be in full force and effect ;and
the said board of county commission
ers shall thereupon advertise by posted
notices at five or more public places in
each township in said counties, and in
a newspaper in the town of Mocksville,
the enforcement of the provisions of
this act, and proceed to execute the du
ties imposed upon them by the provis
ions of this act; and the board of com
missioners of Anson county shall
likewise advertise by posting as afore
said, and by publication in a newspaper
established in Wadesboro; provided,
That before the commissioners of An
son county shall declare the provisions
of this act in force, they must be satis
fied that a majority of the qualified
voters of said couuty have signed the
petition herein provided for." Acts
1881, chapter 172. i
The duties the board of commission
ers is directed to perform are prescribed
in the tenth, eleventh and twelfth sec
tions, as follows:
Section 10. It shall be the duty of
the board of county commissioners of
Davie and Anson counties to erect a
good and lawful fence around the en
tire counties of Davie and Arison, or
such townships therein as shall avail
themselves of the i provisions of this
act, and to erect gates on all the high
ways leading into said counties aud to
keep the same in good repair.
Sec. 11. If the owners of any land
shall object r o the building of any fence
herein allowed, his land, not exceeding
twenty feet in width, shall be con
demned for the fence-way, as land is
now condemned for railroad purposes,
by the North Carolina Railroad com
pany ; provided, That no fence shall di
vide a tract of land against the consent
of the owner, but may follow tbe boun
dary lines thereof ; provided further,
That when a public highway divides a
tract of land the fence majrfolloiw the
highway even against the consent of
the owner of the land so divided.
Sec. 12. That for the purpose of car
rying out the provisions of section 10
of this act' the .county commissioners
may levy and collect, as they-do other
taxes, a special tax upon all the real
property taxable by the State and coun
ty, within the county or township
which may avail themselves of the pro
visions of this act.
A petition approving and accepting
the act and intended to fulfill the con
dition preceding its going into effect,
containing the signatures of more than
a majority of the electors who voted
at the election designated, was present
ed to the commissioners, and adjudging
a compliance with its requirements,
they proceeded- to give public notice of
the fact and to declare that the act had
been approved by the necessary number
of qualified voters, and would- go into
operation and be in force on and after
the first day of May, 1881.
The-present action was instituted on
April 30, the, day preceding that fixed
by the commissioners, and a complaint
then filed reciting the substance of the
enactment, and the action of the com
missioners under it, and alleging as
grounds for objection thereto, that
1st. The necessary number of quali
fied voters had not signified their ap
proval, many of those whose names
were signed not being such.
. 2nd. The boundary fence would be
thirty-five miles in length and onerous
ly expensive to those who were to be
y taxed for its construction.
3rd. The tax required would exceed
the constitutional limits.
4th. The act had not been submitted
to a vote and received the popular ap
proval. 5th. The restriction of the tax to real
estate violates the equality and uni
formity prescribed in Art. 5, sec 3, of
6th. The taking and appropriating
lands for the fence-way cannot be done
without indemnity to the owner.
7th. The requirement that stock be
penned before the construction of the
fence is premature and unwarranted.
On May 2, application was made to
the Judge at chambers, supported by
the verified complaint as evidence, for
an Injunction, and thereupon-it was
ordered that the commissioners show
cause before him at Winston' on May
17 why an injunction should not issue,
and meanwhile they were restrained
from taking further action in the prem
ises. At the hearing of the motion an
affidavit of one of the plaintiffs was
introduced containing lists of names of
persons on the petitions of approval
who are alleged not to be on the regis
try of the different townships from
which the several petitions profess to
come; and also an affidavit of one of
the commissioners avowing the integ
rity of the board in making the canvass
and ascertaining the' result and his be
lief then and still, that the approval did
proceed from a majority of the quali
fied voters of the county. His Honor
denied the motion for' an injunction,
and taxed the plaintiffs with the costs,
from which ruii tbfe appeal.
At the fall te'rnf following the plain
tiffs made a second, -application to the
succeeding judge for an injunction,
and in its support offer an additional
affidavit and say that the commission
ers have levied a tax upon the lands in
their county, while the State and coun
ty taxes for general purposes are 69
cents upon the hundred dollars valua
tion, of 25 cents additional in di®ard
of thelimitatioDSimposed Sin the' con
stitution, and that they tiave improper
ly used and misappropriated portions
of a balance in the county treasury, col
lected for county purposes under the
general law. 1
This charge is met by a counter affi
davit of the same commissioner who
states that the fund applied to . the
building of the fence was- intended to
be replaced out of the tax levied under
the act, some of which had yet to come
in, and that they intended to use no
more of it and that the 25 cent tax had
been assessed in the manner prescribed
This motion was also denied and the
ElaintifEs again appeal. .- Transcripts in
oth appeals are sent up and consti
tute two causes in this? court. It was
'wholly unnecessary and attended with
useless expense to prosecute both ap
peals,' since eyery exception , to which
the firstrefasal of -ithe wTit! is liable,
.lies with, equal force against the last,
and the same relief is obtained by al

1 functions; there has not been .a conwi
r pliance with the precedent condition of I
I a written approval of a majority of the
qualified voters :r-and the. provisions of
the act are repugnant to the constym
tion Tfeese, we propose to examine
17 iche form of legislation. M
It has been seriously questioned that
the Legislature may make an enact
ment to take effect only upon the - hap
pening of a contingent event, but It has
been earnestly maintained that when
the event is the expression of thSe - pop
ular will, ascertained Tty an elettiSn,H
is in effect a transfer of legislative
power to the voters. In reference to
: this distinction, Bedfield, C. J., i in An
elaborate opinion delivered in State vs.
Parker, 26 Ver. 357 says that nhe dis
tinction attempted between the contin
gency of a popular vote and other fu
ture contingencies is without all joit
foundation in sound policy or sound
reasoning," that differences may be
found in the adjudications elsewhere, it
is settled by the decision in Mabty Vsv
the City of italeigh, 4 Jo. Eq.' 870 thai?
such power may be exercised by the-
Legisiature ana it is - declared that
"when it is provided that a" law shall
not take effect unless a majority pf the
people-vote for it, or it is accepted by a
corporation, the provision is, in, -e-ffect-
declaration that in the opinion, of the
Legislature the law is not expedient!
unless it be so voted ror, or accepted."
This principle underlies all ioCal)p
tion" legislation and is fully recognized
and established in this State. Caudwelk
vs. commissioners, 4 Jo. Eq. 323. I ; 1
2. The operation of the act.' , -a v
The plaintiffs insist that the requisite
number of voters have not given them
sanction to the law, and that mkny of
those whose names are signed to. the
petition are not of the class of qualified1
voters of the county. It does aDDeani
however, that the number of subseribrfi
mg petitioners exceeds halt the number j
or those who voted at the preceding!
election of electors for President and:
the commissioneis have adjudged the
fact that the prelimininary condition of
the operation of the act had been i ulfl
filled, and, acting upon the decision,
they have entered upon the duties it-
has enjoined, and given public notice
thereof. The purpose is to show the
necessarry number have- not approved-;
by impeaching, the electoral qualified-'1
tions of a large nnmber of thoSe who
have signed the petitions upon which'
the action of the commissioners is based,
and thus practically reverse their judg- i
ment. 13 it admissible to do this V
In Simpson vs. Commissioners of .
Mecklenburg, 84 N. C, 158, a similar at
tempt was made to go behind the deter
mination of the commissioners' to the:
result of - an election to ascertain the
will of the voters, and it was said that
under the statute, which requires the
commissioners, after examination of
the returns, to ascertain and declare the
result, their decision upon the returns,
of an election regularly and properly
held is final and conclusive.
Upon the fair and honest exercise of
their judgment in determining the vote,
the validity of the enactment is sus
panded, and its operation is not left to
the uncertainties of a future inquiry."
This is decioive of the point, and we
can see no ground upon which the pres
ent case can be distinguished from that,
except that in the latter the duty is pre
scribed in more explicit terms. They
must act when the necessary number of
qualified voters "shall by petition signi
fy to the board ot commissioners of
Davie and Anson counties their approv
al of the provisions of this act." 1 he
commissioners must, therefore, ascer
tain and determine the fact when such
approval is given, and, Jfcbia, being de
clared, the law, by its terms, takes ef
fect, and they are to proceed to the exe
cution of its commands.
It i's of the highest importance that
laws should be known and certain, and
when they are to go into operation upon
some contingent event, that event
should be conclusively settled, and not
left open to question by any suitor who
may choose to contest the fact upon
which its validity depends. This has
been left to the decision of the commis
sioners, and their decision ought to be
and, in our opinion, is final.
The serious inconveniences and em
barrassments that will follow the re
cognition of the right of the citizen to
controvert tbe truth of the declared
fact are pointed out in the recent case
of Xorment vs. Commissioners, 85 N. C,
387, and need no reiteration.
III. The method of taxation:
The constitution directs that taxes be
imposed by a uniform rule upon moneys,
credits and investments, and upon real
and personal property, according to its
true value Art. 5, sec. 3 and that such
as are levied by any county, city, town
or township shall also be uniform and
ad valorem upon all jroperty therein
Art. 7, sec. 9. These restraints are
referable to taxation for objects in
which all have a common interest, and
when disregarded under the levy in
validYoung vs. HendersoD, 70N.C,
420, and cases cited. But there is a class
of taxes, or, as they are often designat
ed, local assessments, which are impos
ed only upon those owners of property
who in respect to such ownership are
to derive a special benefit in the local
improvements for which they are to be
expended, and are not within the -restraints
put upon general taxation.
After enumerating various objects
for which local assessments are made,
such as opening streets, constructing
lines, laying pipes for drainage, Judge
Cooley remarks, that to warrant the
levy of local assessments, there must
not only exist in the case the ordinary
elements of taxation, but the object
must also be one productive of special
local benefits, so as to make applicable
the principles upon which special as
sessments have hitherto neen upheld.
Cooley Tax., 428.
Referring to provisions in the consti
tions of several States, which require
uniform and equal taxation on proper
ty, the same author says: "The view,
generally expressed is that though as
sessments are laid under the taxing
power, and are in a certain sense taxes,
yet they are a peculiar class of taxes
and not within the meaning of that
term, as it is usually employed in our
constitutions and statutes." lb. 446.
"A constitutional provision that tax
ation shall be equal and uniform
throughout the State," observes Mr.
Justice Dillon, "does not apply to local
assessments upon private property to
pay for local improvements." 2 Dill.
Mun. Corp., sec. 617. To the like effect,
Burroughs Tax, sec. 39. In Mun vs.
Stocker, 1 Allen, 150, Hoar, J;, lays down
the rule in these words: ," When the
assessment is made upon persons in
respect of their ownership of a particu
lar species of property, which receives
a peculiar benefit from the expenditure
of the tax, it is valid, although it does
not operate upon all persons and prop
erty in the community "r-Dargen vs.
Boston, 12 Allen 223.
In People vs. Mayor .& Co., of Brook
lyn, 4 New, York, 410, the court declares :
The amount of each man's benefit in
the general taxation cannot be ascer
tained and estimated with any degree
of certainty, and for that reason a pro
perty tax is adopted instead of an esti
mate of benefits. In local taxation,
however, for special purposes, the: local
benefits may in many cases be seen,
traced and estimated with reasonable
certainty. At least this has been sup
posed and assumed to be true by the
Legislature, whose dnty it is to pre
scribe the rules in which taxation is to
be apportioned, and whose determina
tion of this matter, being within the
scope of its lawiui power, is conciu
"The reasoning in ' this
l case" ' i
comment of r Judge Cooleyj "has t been
I generally accepted ' aratifactory nd
followed in subsequent cases." which
are referred to in the nwginjT-Cooley,
a WinoaTciy conceive case more
learlywtthir tbfecempassoi the ;rnles
than that now under consideration.
The general law requires a sufficient
fence to be built and kept up around
alf cultivated land to protect jit from
the 'depredations of stock, at Saf very
great and increasing expense; becoming
the more onerous' as the material used
in its construction becomes scarcer and
more costly. The enactment proposes
to .dispense with separate enclosures
for each man's land and substitute a
common fence around- -the- icounty
boundary to protect -all agricultural
lands from the inroads of stock from
abroad and 1 Che fencing in pf stock
owned within its limits. It creates a
UommuBfity ef interest in upholding
one barrier in place of separate' and
distinct barriers for each plaritation.
and thus-iiv the common -burden lessens
the weight tbat each cultivator! of the
seii must1 otherwise individually bear.
As tbe-greater-burden is thus "removed
from the land owner, he, as such, ought
to bear the expense by which this result
is brought about.- The special interest
benefited by the law Is charged with
the payment of the sum necessary in
securing the benefit. This and no more
is what the statute proposes-to do. and
in. this respect is. obnoxious, to to just
objection from the taxed- laud proprie
tor, as it is free from any constitutional
impediments. ... . . . i. :
IV. The excess over, the limits of
taxation. . ; ....
.Frow what has been said, this as well
as the other provisions of the .cohstitu
tipn which prescribe the mode of taxa
tion,, are not intended . to be and are
not restraints upon the species ot local
assessments to which the present be
longs. But if it were, the objection is
removed by the special orovisioniof the
i-General Assembly given in the iact it-
iseir. uonst. Art. 5, sec. 6, interpreted in
Broadnax vs. Groom, 64.N. G.,244, and
in numerous legislative acts.
In our opinion all the grounds upon
which the court is asked to interpose,
and prostrate the execution of the en
actment are untenable and the ibfunc-
4ion was properly refused.. We there
