The Inecme Tax Law.
The United States Supreme Court
has held some of the most essen
tial parts of the Income Tax Law un
constitutional. Tho Court holds that
taxes on real estate is a direct tax, and
hence a tax on The rents of real estate,
which is really the income of the land,
is the same thing as a tx on tbe land
The decisiotn further holds that the
income from State, conty an~d muni
cipal bonds canniot he taxed.
* ~ This is as fa&r as the decision goes.
The other questions in the case are not
decided, because a majority of the
(Court cannot concur i: an opinion.
The question as to whether the in
validity of the act as to rents and. ini
*come from real est ate renders null and
void the whole act, and as to whether
taxation on personal property-is direct
taxation, are left undzeci:led by the
equal division of the Court.
Many have thonght :hat the decision
would cripple the Goveinmenit so
much that an ex'ra session of Con
gress would have to be called to pro
vide additional revenue for the Gov
ernent; the off:ials say that sufficient
ravenne will be raised to conduct the
While there is an element of intjus
tice in the systemt if income taxation,
it looks hard that s.o many have got

A LUNATIC SUICIDES.
COLUMBIA, S. C., April 8.-There
was a most unfortunate affair at the
State lunatic asylum today. A white
patient committed suicide by hanging,
using his suspenders as a rope. His
galluses were about the only thing he
could fitid to make a gallows of.
The unfortunate man was Z. F.
Watley, who was sent to the Asylum
from Edgefield county on October 31,
1881. He was about 45 years of age
and had been confined for thirteen
years. When he was first sent to the
asylum he was very violent and his
malady took a homicidal form. This
was shown by his attack upon a pa
tient, whom he killed, and attendants
in the early days of his confinement.
Recently he has been well behaved,
and the authorities never dreamed for
an instant that his malady would take
a suicidal form, else he would have
been watched day and night.
This morning when the attendant
went to his room, Watley was found
hanging at the end of his suspenders,
of which he had made a rope to the
grating of his window, dead. He had
evidently climbed up on the window
sill, fixed the noose and then slipped
off. He must have died from slow
and wilful strangulation. When
found he had been dead for four
