A CHICAGO PAPER G.VES THE
SUPREME COURT RULING.
A* Stilted There, a Portion or It Will
Be Declared Unconstitutional Kent*,
State and Municipal Bond* Untaxable.
Conrt Krenly Divided.
CHICAGO, April 6.—A special dispatch
to -The Tribune from Washington, says:
The United States supreme court in the
income tax case, ha* reversed the de
cision of the lower court, bat the in
come tax law as a whole is tpield, but
only by a divided caurt. Two import
ant portions of the law, however, have
been decided to be unconstitutional,
and they are so serious as to effect ma
terially not only the revenues of the
government, but the estimation in
which the income tax will be held by
Kenta, State and City Bonds Exempt.
Under the decision to be handed down
by the court, all incomes derived from
rents are exempted from taxation by the
federal government, and all incomes
derived from state and municipal bonds
are milarly exempted. In other re
spscts the income tax law stands as it
was passed last August, but the result
of the consultations in the supreme
court shows very conclusively that
the law can be easily picked to pieces,
provided suits are brought to contest
each particular point that comes up.
A Curious Fact.
It is a curious fact, but none the less
true, that the law which was passed at
the dictation of tha Popnlistic wing of
a Democratic cougres* has been dis
torted by the decision of t' United
Stat- supreme court, clearly ou consti
tute al grounds, in such a way that it
will absolutely protect the class of cap
italists most offensive to the Populistic
The landlords of the country will pay
income tax. The owners of bonds
of almost any kind, either federal,
state, county or municipal, will
also be free, while the busine man,
the manufacturer and the salaried em
ploye, "Will for the present, at least, be
compelled to contribute to the treasury
of the United State government 2 per
cent of all income in excess of $4,000
The first meeting of the supreme
court was held March 16, two days
after the conclusion of the arguments,
but no decision was reached, and it was
not until Match 30 that they succeeded
in agreeing upon the outlines of a de

1 Conrt Evenly Divided.
I The court was evenly divided, Justice
Jackson being too ill to take part. Justice
Fuller. Justices Field, Gray and Brewer
were opposed to the law. Justices Har
lar, Brown, Shiras and White voted to
sustain the law. The expectation among
members of the court is that the
decision will be rendered on Monday
in open court, but there, is a
bare possibility that the court may
aga be split up into irreconcilable
sections, and hold up the decision. If
the next congress does not repeal the
la wih the sanction of the president
tin re will be a sudden rise in the price
of all local public securities, as weil as
of all real estate, for, as they will be
exempted from taxation, they ought to
get the benefit of the 2 per cent which
other income producers are obliged to
account. O •."

CHICAGO, April 5. -General J. S.
Clarkson, who is in Chicago, stated pos

eral Harrison," he said, "is not an ac

is a 'receptive candidate.' Indeed he
is. I think, one of the most prominent,
if not the most prominent presidential
candidate now before the publio. As
to who will b3 the party's choice in
1896, I am, of course, unable to say,
but it is very certain that General Har

WASHINGTON, April 4.—The income

the expectations of the officials.
tave time and avoid cem plications, the
collectors were instructed to classify
and send the returns on the 10th of each
month, and therefore no reports have
been received of a later date than March
10. Nevertheless, as many as 10,000
returns have already uean received and
are being verified and recorded. I
is estimated that the returns made to
the collectors prior to March 10 repre
sent at least $1,500,000 income tax, and
that the actual amount returned to
April 1 will probably aggregate $15,
Is Exceedingly Gratifying.
It was not expected that returns to
any considerable number would be
made before the 8th or 10th of April,
five days before the time limit expires,
hence, the showing so far made is ex
ceedingly gratifying to those having
.the matter in charge. Another matter
of congratulation is that little difficulty
is being experienced by taxpayers in
filling out the blanks. So far, little or
no difficulty has been encountered, and
all things considered, the work of col
lecting the tax. is going forward with
very little friction. It is expected that
at least $20,000,000 in income tax will
have been collected by June 1, the
close of the fiscal year. The officials do
not express any doubts that the su
preme conrt will sustain all of the im
portant features of the law. if not the
entire act as it stands, and are pushing
the work a? rapidly as is consistent
NEW GREAT NORTHERN CARD.
Time Ketween Portland and St. Paul to Be
Shortened Twelve Hours.
PORTLAND, Or., April 3.—The Great
Northern railroad proposes putting into
effect about May 1, anew time card by
which the time between Portland and
St. Paul will be shortened twelve hours.
It is also proposed to run a complete
through train batween St. Paul and this
city, instead of between St. Paul and
Seattle. The line between Spokane and
Seattle will thus become a branch line,
as the business over it does not warrant
the running of a full train.
