after it reached the president, Mr,
Cummins declared it had been vastly

him nearly every railroad president in
the country had visited Washington
and had been heard by the president

them twice. Substantially every change
had been mad to suit the railroads.
He did not object to the granting of
hearings on legislation, he said. Ills
objection was to the i our a of the
executive officials In taking In hand
the entire direction of legislation. If

bring about the changes. No doubt
there was good reason for the changes,

that not to exceed seven or eight cases

that any court created for the trial of

Mr. Cummins also pointed out the
possibility of 11io enlargement of the
jurisdiction of the proposed court over
that now exercised by the federal
courts. He thought the jurisdiction
should be made as specific as possible.
Blow at All Shippers
More serious and disastrous than any
of these objections, he said, was the
blow to shippers in taking tho inter

said, would give tho department of

OF NEW TAX LAW
GOVERNMENT'S ANSWER IS
HOLDS THAT CORPORATIONS ARE
Solicitor General Submits Brief Sup
porting Constitutionality of
WABHINQTON, March l...— The
government's defense of the constitu
tionality of the corporation tax pro
vision of the new tariff law was sub
mitted today In printed fnrm to the
supreme) court of the United Btate*,
It Is the work of Lloyd W. Bowers,
solicitor genera], but bears the signa
ture also of his Chief, Attorney (Jen
eral Wlckersham. On It the govern
ment will share its oral defenue of the
law when the corporation tux Base
comes up for argument, probably
Tho first point sought to be mnile
is that the tax is not a direct tax
upon property, but is un excise t.i\
upon the "carrying on or doing busi
The declarations of the statute, as
well as decisions of the courts, are
relied upon to support tills point.
As to the statute, Mr. Bowm Hays.
In his brief, that It shows the trans
action of business to bo the subject
of the tax and that the Income of
business Is used merely as measuring
the amount of tax, "which rests not
upon that income, but upon' II"
--occupation from which it Is derived."
It In In the argument that the tax
is not direct, one that Mr. Bowers
first consider* the claim that Inasmuch
as the tux Is not levied upon part
nerships or Individuals, but li put on
corporations and Joint stock companies
find it is therefore assessed on fran
chises. The distinction between part
nerships and individuals on the one
hand and corporations and Joint stock
companies on the other, Is explained
as proceeding from the presence or
absences of franchises, "but from the
wide and important diversity Of legal
rules affecting the two kinds of busi
ness of these two groups.' 1
I* Not Direct Tax
"Even It this tax were regarded ex
actly as a tax upon the exercise or
use of franchises," continued Mr.
Bowers, "instead of being a tax on
the entire conduct or transaction of
business under many special condi
tions, it would be altogether different
from a direct tax on the franchises
The second point Mr. Bowers seek*
to make Is that the tax In not a direct
tax upon the shares of the stockhold
ers, nor upon the Income. The reasons
given for the tax not being a direct tax
on property Is held to apply to the
claims that It Is not a direct tax on
the shares or Income of the stock
The third point is that the tax does
not become direct in the special cas->
of a company engaged In the business
of handling or dealing In real estate
Five of the fifteen cases for consid
eration by the court involve such cor
porations. Mr. Bowers claims they
ral^o no constitutional question, but
only the query as to whether they
are engaged in "carrying on or doing
If any corporation Is not so engaged
if is not reached by tjio statute, he
The fourth point Mr. Rowers seeks
to establish la that the tax is not an
Infraction of the general power of the
states to authorize the formation of
corporations and stock companies.
Even if the tax were on franchises
it still would not he a tax on the
legislative power of the state.
Can Tax Franchises
No authority exists, Mr. Bowers
contends, that holds or even suggests
that the United States cannot tax
franchise of a state corporation es
tablished for ordinary business pur
poses, on the theory that such federal
tax will Interfere with legislative in
dependence of the states In their own
One reason assigned for exempting
Individuals and partnerships Is that
they are without the aid of legal rules
applicable to corporations and Joint
stock companies. Both reason and
authority, it Is claimed, Justify the
exemption of corporations whose net
Income Is not over $5000.
"Exemptions from taxation of a lim
ited amount of individual property are
well nigh universal," says Mr. Bow
ers, "and they rest doubtless upon the
just and necessary policy Of leaving
a living opportunity unburdened by
Labor, agricultural and horticultural
organizations are exempted, lie says,
because they seem "hardly to be or
ganized for profit."
He adds that if it is necessary the
statute could well be construed as not
exempting such associations If their
primary purpose is business profit.
Lodges Are Not Corporations
The exception of societies operating
under the lodge system, he contends,
Justifies Itself. Such, Mr. Bowers
says, are the Knights of Pythias,
Knights of Labor, certain Masonic or
ders, the Red Men and the Wodmen
of the World.
"It is almost humorous," he adds,
"to urge that such organizations must
be considered insurance companies
having purely or chiefly pecuniary
One reason given In Justification of
the measurement of the tax received
from all resources was that the prop
erty of a corporation constituted a
Reply Is made to the objection to
the limitation to the amount of inter
est deduction in arriving at the net
'•Without the limitation," says Mr.
Rowers, "corporations and joint com
panies by issuing bonds for all or most
of their capital—either with or with
out an accompanying issue of stock —
could distribute the business profits,
however large, In the form of Interest
payments, and the tax in that way
could be entirely or largely avoided."
The solicitor general urges that the
tax does not subject the corporations
to unreasonable searches or seizure by
reason of its publicity feature. Neither
the making nor the publication of the
returns can by any possible view be
interpreted as search or seizure, he
Finally, it Is contended that the tax
may properly be collected in 1910. This
is based on the argument that the tax
is not laid on the income which was
received before the law went Into ef
fect, August 5, 1909, but is merely
measured by that income.
