Eody of T. 0. Gibbs Pound
in a Room at Norcnan-
T. C. Gibbs, who had been a resident
of El Paso for two days, ended his life
some time Tuesday night at the Nor
mandle hotel, at the corner of San An
tonio and Campbell streets, by taking a
dose of carbolic acid.
He left no note or other explanation
of the deed and was apparently in good
health. The body was not discovered
until 4 oclock "Wednesday afternoon
when the room was opened and coroner
E. EL Watson summoned. The coroner
found that he had committed suicide
by drinking carbolic acid which had
burned his lips and throat, and an
empty bottle, near the body, indicated
that he had used this means.
Nagley & Kaster. to whose funeral
parlors the remains were removed, re
ceived a telegram from F. Montgomery,
of the Chicago Masons, of which he was I
a 32d degree member, requesting them
to embalm the body and ship it to Chi

man of Chicago having been engaged
in the marbie business there and hav
ing maintained an office In the Tacoma
He went to his room dn the hotel
about 8 oclock Tuesday night, and was

Senator Borah Declares That
the People Demand Right
to Tax Wealth.
ON HIS ATTITUDE
Washington, D. C, Feb. 10. Senator
William E. Borah, of Idaho, took occa
sion in the senate today to attack the
position of those who oppose accep
tance by the several states of the pro
posed amendment to the constitution of
the United States which would permit
the levying of a tax on incomes with
out apportionment between the states.
Incidentally the senator paid his re
spects to governor Hughes, of New
York, including him by Inference
among those who profess to be 1n
favor of an income tax but oppose
practical measures which would permit
Its enforcement. KIs allusion was. of
course to governor Hughes's annual
message to the New York state legis
lature urging defeat of the proposed
amendment on the ground that its
language might be so construed as to
authorize congress to tax incomes de
rived from state and municipal bonds.
Public Mind Suspicious.
Senator Borah pictured the mind of
the public as in a state of suspicion
and discontent Upward the government,
and declared that the people could not
much longer be withheld from radical
action if taxation were continued in
protection of wealth and In exemption
of "incomes which sustain luxury and
breed Idleness and idiocy." The sen
ator said in substance:
"The history of the income tax since
1894 has not been one which any citi
zen can recite with pride. For 100
years a rule of construction as estab
lished by the men who helped to
write the constitution had received
the approval of an undivided court
time and time again. During this
period there sat upon the bench of the
supreme court some of the greatest
lawyers of that or any other period of
this or any other country- During
this period the wealth of this country
had not become so domineering, so
powerful, so determined to have Its
own way. During this period, there
fore, we had under the constitution the
right to Impose a part of the tax upon
wealth and a part upon consumption
and we did so.
Bnrdenv Not Divided.
"In 1894 and 1895 these precedents
were overturned, this constitution re
ceived an interpretation unknown to
its makers. In the face of two most
powerful dissenting opinions to .which
two other judges assented, the humil
iating and astounding doctrine was an
nounced that the makers of the republic
had hedged wealth about so that the
taxing powers of the government could
not reach it even In time of war: .that
the founders of a government based
upon equality and justice had made It
Impossible to divide the burdens of
government between consumption and
a large class of gathered -wealth. Last
session of this body we'were called
upon to ratify and declare by express
act" our assent to that Interpretation.
Under the rule of the majority we did
so. We submitted this proposed amend
ment to remedy this supposed hideous
defect in the fundamental law.
Government Sham of Tax Power.
"Now the scheme and plan Is to de
feat the amendment. Having as a law
making body solemnly accepted this
construction of the constitution, there
by making it impracticable again to
appeal to the court, if this amendment
can be defeated this, the government
of the people, for the people and. by the
people, will stand alone among all the
civilized nations of the earth shorn of
the power to tax that form of wealth
best able to bear the burdens of gov
ernment. "That is the scheme and plan, and
such men as the great governor of
New York is giving them great aid and
comfort. Men say with great fervor of
patriotism, T am in favor of this
power being given to the government
to be used at least in time of war,'
and straightway proceed to help de
feat the amendment. If those who are
the real enemies of this measure would
come into the open its friends could
deal with them far more successfully.
Masses Are Restless.
"Mr. President, no one ever saw this
country in just the condition it is to
day. Never since this government was
launched has there been such a restless
spirit among the great mass of the
people, such ugly questioning, such
persistent inquiry. No part of the
government seems to escape challenge
or criticism, and It is fast becoming
popular to scoff at the constitution
Itself. ,An unquiet, dissatisfied, sus
picious public mind is the public mind
"You can defeat this " amendment.
In view of the class of men who are
joining the crusade against it 3? think
you will defeat it. The forces which
propose to encompass its defeat will
not stop on the hither side of the most
disreputable methods to accomplish
their purpose. But when the people
learn wha you have really done, the
manner In which this has been manipu
lated, it will go far toward exciting to
renewed force that feeling of wrath, of
class hatred already so strong among
us. It will do much to foster disre
spect for and breed disloyalty to the
Government Expenses Increawe.
"When those who are ill able to meet
the burdens of government see its
enormous expenditures continue to In
crease, larger armies and larger navies,
increased burdens everywhere, and
learn furthermore that all this must
be met by a tax on consumption while
incomes which sustain duxury
breed Idleness and idiocy so untaxed,
they will have little mercy with you
in the hour in which you must plead
with them against radical changes in
the government- I do not know how
long we can deal with a patient people
in this way. But I venture to prophecy
not much longer.
"I hope therefore the governors and
legislatures of this country will be
brave enough to do their duty in th s
matter. It is time the people in this
broad land bestir themselves upon this
vital question before it is too iate to
do so. It would be nothing less than
a catastrophe If this amendment should
be defeated, if we are going also to he t
li's the Viial Question
cut off from an appeal to the court.
This is Jn every sense the people's
The Senator's CobcIbsIohk.
Senator Borah outlined his conclu
sions as follows:
1 That the proposed amendment
adds nothing to the taxing povjer of
the national government. This power
vraa complete, unfettered,' plenary, be
fore. It can be no more than that
should the proposed amendment be
2 The proposed amendment does not
deal or propose to deal with the ques
tion of power which is already com
plete but simply with the manner and
method of its exercise and. use of that
3 No one has ever questioned the
power of the national government to
lay an Income tax for as was said by
justice White, the question has always
been "whether an admittedly unlimited
power to tax has been used according
to the Instruction as to method," and.
it was to remedy the method alone that
the amendment was submitted.
4 The words "from whatever
source" add nothing to the force oi
the amendment- It would, in constitu
tional parlance; he just the same if it
said, "to lay and collect taxes on in
comes without apportionment" for who
could then say that you -would not
have the right to lay taxes upon all in
comes. The present taxing power
would not be a particle stronger if It
said to lay and collect taxes upon all
property from whatever source.
S To construe the proposed amend
ment so as to enable us to tax the in
strumentalities of the state would do
violence to the rules laid down by the
supreme court for 100 years, wrench,
the whole institution from its har
monious proportions and destroy the
object and purpose for -which the whole
Instrument was framed.
6 To construe It to cover these in
comes from sources within the juris-
diction and control of the sovereignty
laying the tax is to construe it in har
mony with the principles given us by
Marshall and followed from that hour

become a permanent feature in the El
Paso educational field."
Mis Stafford Enthusiastic.
Mis.3 Mabel K. Stafford general sec
retary of the El Paso Y. W. C- A., said:
"I have visited girl's boarding
schools In eleven different states from
the Carolinas to California and I do
not hesitate to say that I have never
been in a place where a first class school
was more greatly needed than in El
Paso.' I was greatly struck by the
need -when I was here last spring and
the longer I have been here the more I
have realized that such a school would
be of incalculable value to the city.
Such a school would draw patronage
from good American families in Mexi
co, the entire south-west and some of
the northern states. With its corps of
refined teachers It would add a center
of culture to the whole community and
would be a thing in which the city
would take real pride. I have only th
heartiest good -wishes for the new pro
ject." DETECTIVES GET A PHONE.
