Itiis.natural that Urn subject of Taxation
hjuld nttract much of public interest and at-
tention. All are iaterrsird jp this ; all are
$3cui bj it : an J by thit alone lb? Govern
raent is to be supported ft is upon thit that
the.cotivention which forrnrd onr constitu-
tion though composed of much wisdom and
ejpeijencc seem to haye departid from the
- fundstnculal ptinciplps of justictytnd to hat?
yielded to those -vulgar prejudices which
havoceaied to exist among the- inlclligerL
f ndeed.jt seems from that section of :hc ccn-
siitutiou which releles tp taxation that the
convention. f to use a stale put crrTrsive
nhrasr was jcgislaling for "Bunkum."
Art seventh. Sec 27. LTaxatjon shall be
equal and uniform throughopl the state.1'
To ibis all will rendi.y assent llits is in
accordance with equality apd liberty. But
isTaxaticn "equal and uniform ?" What
jays "the third cbuse of the same section?
STne Legislature shall have power to lay
an income tax and to tax all persons pnrstt-
fng a!j7 occupation trade or profession.
provided the :erp orenpation t ha'J pp ap
ply to agricultural or mechanical puriuiti '
Is hot the meaning oral least the force of
the first clause entirely by this sweeping
IjnaHfica'fa i destroyed? for if thjs sec.
Jonoftbecojstutign. meap; anvtbjpg it is
(hat the legislature shall hare a discretionary
power to lmposs a tax upon all occupations
grrjursuits excejt agrUn'tura) ormicbanica'.
j.nd o carry out the "Bunkum" spirit man-
ifested in the convention the Legislature has
used this discretion. Is this just and equit-
able? Is taxing the capital o! tbe mer-
chant and then compelling him to pay an
cdditiontl specific tax of fifty or a hundred
dollars a year and at the some lime exempt-
jqg'lJjp armcr or mechanic from this specif-
jctax making t a ration 'equal and uni-
fprrn'?1' Why then this ini quality and in-
justice? The same is applicable to the pro
fesslonal men. Is this not a free country
and does not the inalienable rights of lib-rly
guarantee unto each indiriJu.il the privilege
bjpgllfiwipg tjrjy pursuit whatever which
j cpl jmmoral in jis nature or degrading in
its tendency; and that too without compelling
him to bear an unrqual share of the public
KurSeas? Why then shouIJ the merchant
pbysjpian or the lawyer be compelled to pay
a Specific la? far ififjf prirjirges? Are
they. less usi-fuland palrjptic thf) rubers
Is there anything demoralising (jr coriup-
ting in these callings?
Scarcely any intelligent and reflecting
.map jyill contend for a moment that the
apepijje tojfej nrhicb are rpposrd upon the
raercharit and the professional man lejson;
bJ3 bflrfpn of taxation upon the far

vThc merchant puts the additional per centage
-upon his goods. The professional man

tjuifejjjenj; are taxed arjd shall he not rp.

Cpjl-N JC JA '
such an inequitable system ?
Irnecds scarcely an argurrjeqt to prove
thai the merchant and prQfc$praI man are
g nccrs'sary component prt of every prospei-
ousand happy state. Upon the skill of the
physician frequently depend fife and death :
the -whole energy of his mind is devoted to
devising means to allay thn pains of the
afflicted and to heal the "ills flesh is hear to"

And shall he for this beir an uneq-ial pro
