The bill provides for the collection of

Chairman Iiolles taxes corporations

capital stock, therefore, has no value.
The bill provides for taxation that the
value of the stock shall not be less than

third bill taxes certain corporate loans.
A meeting of the ways and means

New York, April C Rev. Dr. Daniel
C. Potter, who llvo weeks ngo wus put
out of tho Baptist Tabernacle church,
after a light with the Baptist City Mis
sion society which had existed over tivo
years, has been sued for divorce.
In all the church foreclosure complica
tions there appeared tho name of Julia
Ross, who had been appointed superin
tendent of the Woman's mission. Sho
was Dr. Potter's housekeeper, fought his
battle, shared his long siege an I finally
when he was driven out accompanied
him to his flat on Bast Eighth street.
It fell with tho forco of a thunderbolt
on Dr. Potter, when on Thui.t-.iiiy Howe
& Hummel served him with papers in a
suit for absolute divorce brought by his
wife, Mary C. Potter. Mrs. Potter arks
for alimony and tho custody of tho three
children of tho mnrrlage. In her petition
she charges Dr. Potter with acts in vio
lation of his marriage vows committed
between tho years 1891 and 1S97. Initial
ly she names as principal co-respondent
"one Julia Oschowsky, better Known as
Julia Ross, his housekeeper and super
intendent of tho Young Woman's Mission
nnd Blblo class," Sho declares that Dr.
Potter was guilty of several acts of mis
conduct with Miss Ross at tho Baptist
church building on Second avenue.
Tho wife charges that Dr. Potter was
guilty of similar acts with a woman un
known, nt No. 175 East Eleventh street.

MR. M'KINLEY'S CALLERS
The Orccn Mountain Delegation Urges
tbc Appointment of John G. Craw
ford for Minister to Columbia.
Washington, April 5. President McKIn
ley had hosts of callers today. Tho na
tional forestry commission, headed by Ar
nold Hague and Professor Brewer, of
Yale, which was summoned hero to con
sult with tho president regarding tho re
vocation of tho order of Mr. Cleveland
setting asldo twenty-one forest reserva
tions In tho west, were received shortly
before noon and remained with Mr. Mc
Klnlcy some time discussing the matter.
Tho other callers were mostly senators
and representatives and olllco-seekers.
Tho Connecticut nnd New Hampshire
dclgatlon called in force. The delegation
from tho Nutmeg stato pressed the state
for tht local olllces agreed upon last
week. The Green 'Mountain delegation
presented John G. Crawford, of New
Hampshire, for minister to Colombia. .As
the present minister is a Now Hampshire
Democrat they claim that tho place should
go to their state. Senator Nelson, of Min
nesota, urged tho claims of cx-Sonator
Mark H. Dunncll for an audltorshlp In
tho treasury department. Ex-Delegate
Murphy, of New Mexico, saw tho presi
dent In behalf of Myron II. McCord, his
candidate for tho governorship of the ter
ritory. It Is expected that this contest.
which has been very bitter, will bo set
tled before tho president leaves the city
on Wednesday. Tho other candidates are
Isaac T. Stoddard, Kurt Dunlop, L. H.
Goodrich and It. A. F. Penrose, a brother
of Senator Penrose, of Pennsylvania,
lteprescntatlvo William Alden Smith, of
Michigan, presented tho protest of tho
Michigan delegation and legislature
against the abandonment of the Detroit
lteprescntatlvo C. W. Stone and J. C.
Sturtovant, of Pennsylvania, Introduced
Mr. Holmes, who Is a candidate for tho
Denmark mission, but received little en
couragement. Mr. Stone also spoko a
good word for ex-Congressman W. W.
Browne, of Pennsylvania, who Is a can
didate for assistant attorney general.
Representative W. A. Stone, of Penn
sylvania, and Representative Boutelle, of
Maine, chairman of the house committee
on naval affairs, called on the president
with cx-Represcntatlvo Robinson, of
Pennsylvania, who Is a candidate for ts
slstant secretary of tho navy. Thero was
a report last week that Mr. Robinson
had withdrawn from tho contest, but this
Is indignantly denied. The Impression
prevails about tho white house that Mr.
Roosevelt will receive tho honor of being
Secretary Long's assistant.
Tho president and his family will leave
here Wednesday for their outing on the
dispatch boat Dolphin. Their destination
will depend largely upon tho weather. It
Is probable, however, that they will sail
down tho Potomac by tho capes and
thenco up to Annapolis, whence they will
return to Washington by rail.
