Washixgtox. Maj 7. Tha supreme
court with its fall membership of nios
justices on the bench for the first time
la many month, has began the hearing
of the Income tax suits. Justics Howell
Jackson, of Tennessee, who ha been ab
sent front Washington tho irrcater part
of tho past fear seeking restoration of
health, took his seat again, with extraor
dinary interest attached to his presence,
since he assumes practically the position
of umpire upon the vital question of the
principle upon which tho law is based,
which divides the other justices into equal
factions. Justice Jackson did not appear
to be feeble, but it was plainly evident
that hs-tra (u from being a well man,
and thitonly a strong effort made him sit
throughout the hearing.

the income tax provision, and as -Speaker
Crisp, of tiro house. The attendance of
lawyers and others having an unofficial
interest in the matter was noticeably
smaller than at tho first argument of the
case, and after the usual contingent of
casual tourists had satisfled their curiosity
to obtain a sight of the prominent men,
the court room was not crowded. But
two arguments are to be mode for each
side, by Attorney General Ulney and As
sistant Attorney Gonernl Whitney for the
government and by W. D. Guthrie and
Joseph Choate for the appellants. As the
time assigned is five hours to each side
tho arguments will be closed tomorrow
Opinion ot the Hilton CtH.
Guthrie finished his speecj yesterday
afternoon. In referring to the Hylton
cow he controverted tho opinion that the
decision in that case bod been accepted as
deciding that only tho capitation tax and
the land tax wore direct taxes, and asked
if this was so why was it that congress in
IT'jO, less tuan thirty days after the de-
siat rendered, had Instrueti-dTihe"'
'ewrtury of Iho treasury by resolution to
report a plan for laying direct taxes by
apportionment. Guthrie then precnted
ot soma length the contention that as it
was clearly the intention of congress to
havo the law act as a wholo upon all iu
tvmei. the provisions which are unques
tionably void invalidate tho whole not.
As to Krfondias tho War Taru
Ho declared tho act should be sent b;:ck
to congress because It is arbitrary and un
just and in violation of the expre-s pro
visions of tho constitut on. Guthriesnid:
"The people of the Un te.l States gl.ully
paid during the war tho income tax to
defray the expenses of the war, and would
make similar sacrifices today it it were
. necessary. Con2ress has not returned the
cotton tax, although it was clearly sec
; tional, partial and unfr.lr. Hits it ever
boen advanced as a principle of justice or
morality that if you decide that a certain
interpretation of the customs laws has
been erroueouo, every man who ha l paid
without protest Is cutitlol to have his
Uoing Hark to Ancient History.
Whitney next took tho floor and criti
cised the other f i le for going a long way
back into history for precedent and illus
tration. He had not intended to go
back further than but as the np
pellnnts had gone to llsO he would him
self give some precedents of that date.
"Can't you," asked the chief jus tiro in
a tone which appeared to contain a spirit
of banter, "go back further than that?"
"I might," replied Whitney, "but I
should not tax the patience of the court
to that extent, but for the precedent of
my learned friends on the other side." lie
said he would agree to stop short of 11$)
If Choate would, whereupon Choate as
sured Whitney and the court that he
would stop several centuries short of that
Whitney Bee Ins nis Argument.
Whitney referted at some length to the
distinctions between the words tax and
duty In Kngllsh legislation. He said this
distinction had been applied only where
the word duty could not be made to cover
the cose. "If. he said,'"tbe I ranters ot
the constitution were aoVjnuuited with
Klaekstone they were faniMlox-with the
Kmrlish classification." 'A peculiarity of
tho Kngllsh system since litAfcru that
everything called s tax was 4bVA by tho
rule of apportionment, whtreae-evcry-thtng
called a duty was laid by Jtie.riuo
of uniformity. He contended tost the
direct taxes were traceable to the English
land taxes, and it was impassible to
vlevy a tax except by apportionment. Tho
system of apportionment among countries
J was the same, in this country in the' early
' days as in England.

Scene Witnessed la Fannaylvania Oil Rig
- ' k Destroyed.
Bradford, May 7. Sunday night tho
forest fires died out, but are expected to
spring up at any minute. Quintuple hill
is on fire now. Ever since the dry spell
set in tho Emory Oil company has had a
man employed to follow after each train,
so that in case the woods should catch
fire the flames might be extinguished be
fore getting beyond control. Yet in spite
of this precaution the hill is a roaring
tower of fire. It has not been learned
how the conflagration started, but pre
sumably from sparks of some passing en
gine. The Emory Oil company has lost
one oil rig and others are in danger.
Unless ram comes or the progress of the
destroying element can be arrested much
property is in danger of being consumed.
Should the fire go over the hill many rigs
on the west branch side will no doubt go
up in smoke. A bad firo is reported be
tween Brookston and Chaffee, in Elk
county, and another west of Coon Run.
Nothing has been learned from those
points as to damage done.

assumed a new rolo. She Is a hypnotist,
and a first-class one at that, as shown by
an exhibition given by her here yesterday
during an official investigation now pro
ceeding against certain officers ot the
state insane asylum. During the pro
ceedings Mrs. Ljosc, without announcing
her purpose, walked across the committee
room to where J. L. Flint, an attendant
at the asylum, was sitting and remarked,
with a pass of her hand before his eyes:
"Mr. Flint, you look weary. Your testi

"And your limbs, too." said the Wich-
italto, and straightway ono of hut legs
was stiffcr than It really ought to be. For
ten or fifteen minutes Mrs. Lease played
with her subject to the vast entertainment
of the spectators. She made him do all
sorts of things, ridiculous and otherwise,
and finally brought him out of his trance
with a few passes of her hands. As Mrs.
Lease proceeded with her "black art"
the committee and witnesses looked on
dumbfounded, and only regained their
composure when sho laughingly declared
the performance over for the day.
