As we go to preen before the conclusion of the meeting, we can not sav more, but t.:e meeting was a verv interesting and useful one. The Graded School Tax and Other Taxes. We regret our excellent friend Capt. Patton should oppose a graded schocl for fear taxes should become burdensome. Upon ihii point we will reftr to his let ter in another column. Are taxes really hih in Asheville ? high enough to be considered a burden ? The rated value of the property of Ashe ville is, using Capt. Patton 6 figures, $4,000,000, and that on, in general, a low assessment. The levy is only 80 cents on one hundred dollars worth of prop erty for all citv purposes, including interest interest on a city debt of $140,000. The man who owns $100 worth property paya SO ets. 200 worth, $1 40 500 worth, 4 00 1000 worth, 8 00 It is easy to carry the calculation on. and multiply the number of thousands the person owns by eight, which will give the number ol dollars in taxes he or she must pav on that property, conoiu erintt the lax they or any individual payu, does he not receive for more than return by the enhancement of his property in street improvements and all improvements and conve- conve- veniences made and afforded, and the consequent attractions to the city of visitors and residents and industries? Is his burden any his where equal to the benefits fhis. thinki asonable 4ax- 4ax- has secored for $500 or a $1,000 property.

Suppose we had a tow levyof taxes low assefifement of property, no improvements, improvements, and our working people couid only secure occasional jobs, would not 25 1 cents per hundred be much harder to pay than the SO cents now c we undertake undertake to say A. heville can show more good improvements for the money she has expended than any place we nave. ever visited ; and it is this fact as much as any other that has attracted and continues continues to attract population, enterprise. investment, wnieti enhances Uie value 01 property, gives labor employments and secures for onr city its name as one of the progressive cities of the country. With all these no one can deny nat Asheville needs a first-class first-class first-class ten months public graded school for her preuent and increasing population, and as an addi tional attraction. Now how much more is this to cost us? On every one thousand thousand dollars' worth of property $1.66. Will an v citizen who owns one thousand dollars' worth begrudge one dollar and sixty-six sixty-six sixty-six cents tax lor such a purpose I We know capt. ration win uot, uur ran we believe anv others will. Well, $i .66 added to his $8.00 will not be an unbear able burden, considering the blessings to be conferred, and more selhshly speaking, speaking, the benefits to accrue to the property property holders by virtue of the attractions such a school as thi fund will provide will zive to our city. Let us all vote to-day. to-day. to-day. and vote lor uie tax.

Let us vote for the school. - For tin. nevdle CmiEM.-.-7 CmiEM.-.-7 CmiEM.-.-7 CmiEM.-.-7 CmiEM.-.-7 'AY ON THE SHALIj we VOTE TO t GRADED BCHOOI- BCHOOI- .JJF-STrOl? .JJF-STrOl? .JJF-STrOl? ? 41 MMr JZMort:i on t propciife 'Mo f shicthaii - reply to the above qn often been asVed,.but4 "iioiiowtng local cr:4 aeis8 j v hv Ivtill tanen irom ontr vi 1 . i demand that 1 should e"i . not" vote, and still claim,1 favor of "ignorance" V - The man who reoiaUft t v;iy from tbe - toe Graded Dolls and fails to Yoto u School next ThursdayrR9a-r ThursdayrR9a-r ThursdayrR9a-r -v -v l-' l-' l-' action lost OB U uvur ui me of Aiheville growinj7i KtK. iyorarice. f - U jnl.

The evil, of excessively heavy tax, stares us in the face this "ear more than ever before, and let us be alow to act so as not :o increase our burdens. Who ought to vote for this tax ? Should the white men ? I answer no. because it js unjust to impose a heavy tax on them, when a large proportion goes to educate the colored colored children, whose parents hardly pay anv of the tax. Should the colored men vote for it ? No, because it can never be to their interest interest to impose a burden on the white Deople, on whom they depend for most of their employment. ;The intelligent colored man knows that he gets more than his legitimate pjoportion of the State school tax, and this should satisfy him. Moreover he cannot impose a burden on his white neighbor without putting on himself a tax, which although light in comparison, is heavy when considering considering his small means. Besides I can hardly believe the laboring colored men are willine to increase even their poll tax to improve the condition of the few colored teachers amongst us, especially when these teachers now get enough to educate the colored children in all Eng lish branches. My advice to them is to end their children to school and reap their ftri1Jhiirrt-:';-;,fc-u- ftri1Jhiirrt-:';-;,fc-u- ftri1Jhiirrt-:';-;,fc-u- ftri1Jhiirrt-:';-;,fc-u- ftri1Jhiirrt-:';-;,fc-u- ftri1Jhiirrt-:';-;,fc-u- ftri1Jhiirrt-:';-;,fc-u- ftri1Jhiirrt-:';-;,fc-u- p-iovuudti, p-iovuudti, p-iovuudti, the State, bnt do not increase the already heavy fax. both on themselves and their employers for which there can be no necessity whatever.
