M ELLEN WROTE TO LOEB
Feared President Thought He Had Gone Too Far After
Interview Court Bars Some Trolley
A ruling of Judge Hunt with reference,
to Connecticut trotleya yesterday may
shut out evidence relating to the New
York. Westchester A Hoston Hat: road,
regarded as one Of the most senaa
Honal features of the Uovernmeut'a caae
against the eleven former New Haven
directors now on trial In tha I'uited
After a morning of argument, at the
opening of the afternoon session the
Judge ruled that only such trolley line
as Participated in Interstate oommeroe
could become part of the evidence. A
few minutes before adjournment, when
an effort waa made to question Charles
S. Mellon about the "duo bill" road, the
witness surprised representatives uf the
Government by rolunteerng that It was
an entirely Intrastate line, stopping at
the Connecticut border.
Implying to further questions by
Frank M. Swacker. Special Assistant
Attorney-General, the witness said the
New York, Westchester A Huston oper
ated under a New York State charter
exclusively, that he bad never heard
that it was proposed to extend it beyond
the State line, and that he had never
seen any maps or surveys showing that
it was to go further.
It was not till one way yesterday,
however. A few minutes before the New
York. Westchester and Huston Incident
R D. Batts. special Assistant Attorney
General, had succeeded In reading to
the Jury a letter written by Mr. Mel
len to William Loeb. Jr.. President
Roosevelt's secretary, on January 27,
10. whh-h Is regarded by the Govern
ment us going far toward establishing
tho innteiitn.n that the Now Haven
knew it waa violating the Sherman
anti-trust sot. This letter went in over
strong objections In which De' Dancey
Nlcolt charged that the Government
waa trying to play politics, Just as It
i ntui in maiding me defendants ror the
met time on the eve of the 1914 election.
The letter In part waa as follows :

WILSON BEGINS WORK
ON CONGRESS ADDRESS
Tulks Over Snbjeet With Cftbl
not May Ask Laws to
Stop War Plots.
Washington, Nosr. 1. At the Cab
inet meeting to-duy the President's forth
coming address to Congress was dis
cussed. The ITesident talked with each
member of the Cabinet on the subjects
relating to hie department. He will be
tn the actual writing of his address
immediately, and hopes to have it fin
ished by Thanksglvlm? Day.
The larger part of the address will be
devoted to the subject of national de
fence, but among the other Itemi which
the President will discuss are the ship
purchase bill, revenue measures, rural
credits, the conservation bills, which
failed In the last session, economy and
a budget system and the Philippine In
It Is likely that President Wilson also
will suggest amendments to existing law
which will permit the Government to
handle more directly and quickly Mtuu
tions that have arisen in the country as
n result of the Kuropean wnr. Including
plots and OOnSplmctei SgSlnSt the man
ufacture of war munitions.
It was said on high authority to-day
that the Administration's legislative
programme for the next session of Con
gress Includes no measures which may
lie expected to have a disturbing effect
upon' the business world. It Is under
stood that the resident's message will
omit any reference to the bill Introduced
with his sanction at the last session,
vesting the Interstate Commerce Com
mission with the power to supervise se
curity Issues of rullroads.
The President and his advisers are
becoming more and morn enthusiastic
everv day at the evidences of renewed
prosperity, and It Is believed that they
will carefully steer clear of any steps
Involving possibilities of disturbance.

INCOME TAX RAISE I
SORE, LEADERS SAY'
Inereasfi in Rate and Lower
Exemption DeoMed On to
HIGHER SURTAX ALSO
Washington, Nov. 16 That the Ad
ministration has practlntlly decided to (
recommend amendment to the Income i
tax act so as to Increase Ihe yield of j
revenue front that source, was the state
ment made by Democratic leaders In I
Congress to-day. A final decision as to
what changes In the laws are to be sup
ported by the Administration will be
reached within the next ten day.
Administration officials have two pro
posals under consideration as regards
the Income tax. One Is that the normal I
rate of I per cent, be Increased to IH
per cent, and the present exemption of
M.A00 for married Juen and 13.000 for j
single men be continued. The alternative i
Is that the present rate Isj maintained
and the exemptions induced to $2,000 I
and IS.000 respectively.
The Administration has boen urged
by leaders In tho House to adopt fea
tures of both OPOpOsala This has been I
put In concrete form hy a House leader,
who suggests that the exemption for
married men be fixed at 11,000 ; the I
exemption for smitle men at t-,000, that
the normal tax he fixed at ltt Per cent
Instead of 1. the present rate, and that ;
Ihero be a material Increase In the sur- ,
tax that now applies when an Income
reaches O,OO0 or more a year
The surtax at present ranges from 1
POT cent, on Incomes of $"0,000 to K per
OOPJti on Incomes of $60,000 and over, i
Dons lo p IO.OOO.
The propoFc.1 surtax would run as i
follows: on incomes In excess of 1 10,000 J
up to IM.000, 1 per .-ent ; $26.nno to!
$80,000, 2 per cent. ; $50,000 to TI,000,
3 per cent., Tt,006 to 1100,000, 4 per i
cent ; $100,nno to tjuo.no", r. tier cent.;!
$200,000 to $400.onn, 6 per cent : $4n.- 1
ooo to $500,000. 7 per oont ; MOO.WM i
to $1,000,000, 8 per cent ; more than
11,000,004, 9 per cent
Figures prepared at the Treasury
show thai a reduction in the exemptions
to $2.uoo and $3.nn for single and
mnrned men, respectively, from $3,nno
and $ I. Without any change in the
normal rate of 1 per cent, or Increases
In surUA- s. would yield Use than $5,011".
An Increase In the normal rate to
one und a hulf. these figured show, would
Increase the yield from approximately
$80.0011.1100 to 1140,000,000 a year. The
Increased surtax proposed would still J
further Increase the yield.
It may be stated on nuthorlty that
tho Administration Is so far Undecided ;
whelhcr it will recommend an issue of
bonds tn raise additional funds that will
be required to tiuanee the Presidents
national defence plans.
Oppose Bond leans.
The responsible leaders in Congress'
are opposed to a bond issue, either for
national ib-fence or any other purpose. 1
They assert that the additional revenues!
required can be obtained by supple
mental taxing laws, and they will en
deavor to so Influence the Almlnlslra-i
Among the proposed items of taxation
now under consideration in official quar
ters are an excise levy on gasolew.
automobiles, freight, a tax on hank
PhoolDI ngal a lay ing of customs dtlUl s on
tea and Coffee, as well us VUgstr.
Figures prepared by actuarial of the
Government show thai a tax of 2 cents
a gallon on gaolne would produce ap
proximately $2.'i.000.000 a year, a tax
of II per cent, on freight, M0,000,0t6 ;
a tax of 10 per cent, on the manufac
ture of automobiles, $3S,too,ooo ; a
duty of contl a pound on coffee, $$$,
OOO.oiui ; a .1 tit v of 10 cents s pound
on beg, 110.000.000; 1 cent a pound on
sugar, $5S.O00000 a year : a two cent
tux on bank checks, $10,000,000,
Opposition to the proposal to tax mil
tilt ions of war Is developing among Dem
ocratic leaders They de late it would
lie difficult to define In law the meaning
of the term "munitions."
A meeting of the Ways and Means
Committee will he held here early next
month fo consider plans for raising reve

diately reinstated Assistant Postmaster

"Postmuster, Wlnnetka, 111. :
"Restor Burkitt Immediately. Am

Confusion over Burkitt' statu re
sulted when It waa announced yesterday
that he would be reinstated It the only
charge brought against him was that of
disloyalty to the President.
Mr. Itoper contended that the Depart

merely on the charge of dlsloyalt;' but
on other sufficient grounds.
When the White House learned that
further Investigation wa contemplated
the announcement wa made that Uurkitt
would be restored without any If or
t'Htcauo, Nov. 1$. Oeorge Burkitt,
assistant postmaster at Wlnnetka,
dropped into the Wlnnetka poet office
to-day for his mall.
"do back In the rear and shuffle a
little mall." (aid A. M. Kloepfer, the
Burkitt went back and started to
work on the pigeonhole a duty usually
assigned to Junior postal clerks.
This was 11:11 A. M At 12 o'clock
Kloepfer railed to him : "(Jet your
