There ia ottv feature aboat tke new con
stitutiou wkiak wa did not diacorer until
just before ibe election, It ia tka Rait
to tka power to tax property. 1 ka first
section of tka article aft Reran ae aad Tax
ation declare :
The General A
tina tax on every
over 21 van and endrr 60 ve rst

Accordmg to tke above langaage not
more than two dollar MX can be pat on
three hundred dollar worth of property
for I Kith State and county purposes, w hieh
would he 66 J cent on tke 0100 value.
Wr arc satisfied that thi ia the mewutne
of tka arc lion, notwithstanding soiae d
oar prominent men bare asserted the con
trary. We kaaw tkat some prnmirient
member of ike Cons-rvatire narty aefee
with us that there is a limit to the liixiue
power. though thev onnos'd the ntihcattnk
of the (Jonatilutiou on oilier grotiuda tba
the taxation matter,
With thb restriction no toxalinn,
tbe fact tkat all hite men can hervaflei
rote, we don't think we are badly hurt
the Constitution is adopted.
I CuarMIe lirmorrat.
We do not understand the section quo
ted, as oar friend of the Demoernt does
aid we think be ia clearly mistaken,
will be observed that the limitation is
tbe poll omy, arid not on the pioperty
Lit us employ the langaage nsti.'illy em
ployed ky legislative bode s to express tkt
idea intended to be conveyed, and! its
meaning will be clear :
"Tbe General Assembly shall levy
eapilalion tax an every male luhal'iun
over 21 and under 50 years of age, whirl
shall be ewsafjsa asajj saR a (he tar oti
pitptrfjt safosaT mt fhrrt twnirrA dollars
im cash : Provided, that the Stale ami
Commit rctpSkthn tax combined shall utt
er exceed two dollar on the head. "
This is tbe langaage Inch most legis
latlre bodies woald have used, and which
exactly conveys the idea of the sccliuul
quoted from the Constitution. The pro
vise., it will be seen, is tkat the tax on tin
pott, not the tax on property, sHstT neVei
icera a certain amount, i nere is im
mil fixed to taxation af property hut tke
public neceesity and the mandates of the
constitution. If tka tax levied on proper
y is irar man az on ine .iuu wortn, men
tbe tax on tke poll is to be reduced in the
Mine proportion, but if the tax on proper;
ty ahouh! be above that rate the tax n
tka poll is not to exceed 03: The prori
aloe, as We understand it. affords no pro
tection whatever against extravagant tax
atiou on prorjerty, hut ftuly agaiuat kigb
taxation on tke poll.
That this is .what tbe foimers of the
section meant there can he no donbt, in
construing an instrument of any kind, and
especially one of such vast importance as
tka fundamental law of a t;t.-. aame
meaning most be gircn to every part of it.
and the different parts must be made to
hartnonixe, if p'wsihlR. Where this caa-
not be done the lees important must i M
to tbe more iaporunt part. Section t
of tbe Article from which the above ia ex
tracu-d by tbe Ikmricrat is as follows.;' N
Pec.. 4. Tbe General Assembly slwll, hy ap
(Tore iau legi!atKia and by ; .,,' laxathni
provide for the promp and reyu ar jayrnein ,
flie interest on the rwiblu; deUt. a' .J stier tl-
yer IHMO, it shall, lay a pi-v tie annn.J tax up
oe the real and penonal' pi operty of the Blals.
and .the sum thus reaiitdlsnajl be h apart as a
kara studied the sab lee t witk some eare,
tka two sectioas parfoatfy sajswe witk each
atkar-tWer is not tke slightest conflict
between tkea. The laagnage is manda
tory, aad Ike limit to taxation, ae far ae
pioperty ia csmceHSed, is tka adequacy of
tka amount required to carry on tke State
government, to meet tbe expenses af tka
county and t.ewnship governments, to erect
Aayluma, ILases of Refuge and a Peni
tentiary and to pay the interest on tke
paklic debt, and. after the year 1800, to
create a sinking fund for the pay inent al
tke principal. And all of tkia ax ia la
be levied nn property exclusively, aa all
tka taxes levied on the poll are to be
appropriated to educational and charitable
purposes. Sixry-sil and IWw-lbird cents
on the hundred dollar worth at property
in the State at Ra present value, would
not mare than meet tke ataoant that aaal
be raised, if tke requirements of ike Con
stitution are complied witk, exclusive of
tke interest on tke public debt.

any sack iking, and, in oar opinion it h

Tke greatest objection wkick we have
to this part of the Conatiintion ia tba the
matter is introduced at all. Tke whole
matter of taxation should have been left
witk tke legislature, as formerly. A ron
llllaliia skankl be eriy a fundamental
