that he would not live until dawn.
Dr. Maker was stricken with apoplexy

It was feared ho would not live until night.
He rallied somewhat at about ! o'clock,

Washington, April 6 The attention of
several members of the cabinet was called
to-day to tho dispatch this morning from
Chicago, giving the substance of the Chi
cago Tribune's iiubllcatlon concerning tho
supreme couit upclslon on the Income tax
case, but they declined to express any
opinion thereon, on the ground that it
would be manifestly Improper for them to
discuss any opinion of the court tit least
until it had been olllclally promulgated.
Prom another, but nn entirely authentic
source, it is learned that whatever the
decision of tho court may be, the president
will not call an extra session of congress,
and even should the decision declare the
law wholly unconstitutional the president
will adhere to his determination not to
call congress together, and that ho will so
announce In n public decimation.
All efforts to secure from members ot
the supreme court either authoritative eon
fiimatlon or denial of the truth of tho
Chicago Tribune publication proved un
availing. View of 'eiiiitiirs.
Senator Voorhees, chairman of tho
tlnajice committee. When told of the publi
cation to-day; said: 'It may be thatu-por-H6ti
of the law may not lie sustained. I
consicvr there is a tiosslbillty of such a
result, bur 1 do not know anything about
it, and 1 do not believe that any one out.
side the court knows anything about it.
Hut," he continued, "suppose it should bo
true that that portion of the law In re
gard to rents nnu municipal bonds should
prove to be. In the opinion of the court,
unconstitutional, tho law will not be ma
terially Impaired. It will still afford an
Immense revenue. The estimates which
liave been made are entirely too
iow on the revenue which would ho de
rived from the law a a whole. Instead of
Its Including from fifteen to thirty millions,
yon will sea It yield fifty, seventy-five, or
even a hundred millions of revenue."
Senator Harris, of the finance commit
tee, declined to discuss the question at all,
as did Senator Junes, of Arkansns. who,
though still sick, has returned to Wash
ington, to close out a little public busi
ness. Senator Peffer expressed the ople'on that.
If the incomes from ients and bonus should
be eliminated, the eflleleticy of the law
would he materially rrljioled.
Leaving out of consideration tho ques
tlnc, of tax on bonds, he Said:
'vhe rent Item Is a. most Important one.
We consider that one-third of tho farm
ers In the country are renters: thai 52 per
cent of the entire population of the coun
try at large and 77 per cent of the peoplo
living In "Itles of over 100,000 population,
are also thus classed, and that In New
York city the percentage of renters is 01.
Such a decision would nsult In a Brent
spread of Populism,"
The court Is In consultation to-day, as
usual on Saturdays, but It cannot be
learned whether the Income tax opinion has
been prepared or will hi, handed down on

Ennfoles All to Avoid tho Evils of Patent Mcdlcltics
Ronsons Why This Offer Has Boon Made by the Cope

upon the Copcland Spcclnllls, especially
now, when by taking advantage of the
free treatment, the public can escape the
necessity of resnrtlng to patent medicines.
The Copelnnd specialists are willing to ac
cept thanks for services done, but they
cannot accept expressions ot gratitude
based on Ihe Idea that this Offer of free
treatment Is a charitable or philanthropic
one. They have tin desire lo be mlslinder
stood. On thH contrary, they wlh to bo
understood 'cry clearly. The offer Is made
for clearly denned husine" renson.
1, To protect the public against the
medical sharpers who Infest this city,
2. To protect the public against the
schemes ot men, who attempt to make peo
ple believe they can Imitate the Copelnnd
S. To give the widest possible demon
stration to the superiority of the Copelaiid
system ot disease treatment nbove all
I. To enable those needing treatment at
(his season of the vear and who usually
reort to patent medicine, to take it res
ulat treatment for one month or more at
the hands of specialists who understand
how to prescribe for each Individual ens
and thus avoid the. danger of being pois

IMPORTANT TO STOCKMEN,

Fort Scott. Kas. .April C (Special.) A dis
patch from TapOka t-ays the rnprome court
n.'U-' rendered -a declion in the famous case
of J. 11. Sparks, a well known cattleman ot
Wichita, against the Missouri Paclilc Rail
way Company. In which Sparks was given
n judgment of $12,000 for serious damages
received by being knocked otf tho top of a
car by a lowbrldgo at Kl Dorado.
The supreme court reverses tho judg
melit'ot the lower court, and Sparks cannot
recover damages, notwithstanding that he
had stock on the train, and it was while
going to attend to it that he received the
Injuries, by reason of a clause In the ship
ping contract forbidding him to so on top
of a moving train.
All stockmen have been accustomed to go
on top of trains while In motion, but the
supreme court holds they cannot tinder the
prohibiting clause. This Is an Impomtnt
ease to stoekmen and has been under con
sideration by the supreme court for the
last ten months. The suit orlglually was

and In some way the appointment was not

a question, simply observed that he Is not

thought, hy Monday.

all averaged a ehado lower to-day and
