Theee properties consist of stocks

corporations ot North Carolina amount

Article V. Section S. ' Laws shall
be oassed taxing by a uniform rule all
money, credits, investment in bonds,
stocks, joint-stock companies, or oth
erwise; and, also, all real and person
^al property according to Its true value

Article V, Section 5. Property be
longing to the State or to municipal
corporations shall be exempt from
taxation. The General Assembly may
exempt cemeteries, and property held

wearing apparel, arms for muster,
household and kitchen furniture; the
mechanical and agricultural imple
ments of mechanics and f&imers, li
braries, scientific instruments, or any
other personal property to a value not
exceeding three hundred dollars.
The great question in this cause is
the constitutionality of the exempting
