Tho fortune of tho Rothcshilds
has often been mentioned in print,
but tho Paris Signal gives some
now and interesting information
about it. Accordingito this authority
tho total wealth of tho
family at tho present timo
amounts to 10,000,000,000 francs,
of which tho French branch possesses
1,000,000,000. In 1875 thoy
had less than half this snm, showing
that thoir fortuno has doubled
in 18 years. In 1800 tho grand
father of tho present generation of
Rothschilds had nothing, his financial
success beginning aftortho
of Waterloo. It is estimated
that in 19G5 their fortuno will, if
continuoing to grow as heretofore,
amount to tho stupendous sum oi
300,000,000,000 fianes. Tho interest

there is no investmert which

Arizona, for land onco brought under
cultivation, which is mado tributary
to any given irrigation system,
must forever contribute to tho
valuoofthat system, for without
tho wator tho land must return to a
desert wasto, and with abundance
of water, it yields more than a
hundred lold annually, and as tho
years como and go,tho land becomes
moro valuable by virtue of its
improvement, hence tho security
of tho investment grows stronger

appreciation in tho value of the

The Power Of SUier.
Francis G. Nowlands, member
of congress from Nevada, has added
a story to tho history of the
Japanese-Chinese war that is interesting.
Ho is an aiuicnt silver advocate,
and his story is in support of the
assertion that silver is tho greatest
of monoy motals. Ho said:
"It was during tho timo that
James G. Blaine was secretary of
state, I received a letter from tho
depaitmcnt, introducing to mo a
number of Japanese, comprising a
commission who wero in this
country to investigate our monoy
system. Thoy told mo that an
agent from England had been in
Japan trying to get their government
to demonetizo silver. They
talked with Senators Stewart,
Jones, Teller, Sherman, and others.
They wero warned not to think of
allowing silver to bo discharged as
a monoy metal. Tho result of this
investigation is that today Japan
is tho great power of tho orient.
"What would have been tho result
had Japan dono as England
wished? "Vhen this question of a
war with China arose Japan could
not havo carried on tho war had
sho been upon a gold basis without
first consulting England. A gold
loan would have resulted, and England
would havo had Japan by tho
throat, ovon as sho has us today.
England fears Japan moro today
than she does any other nation on
tho earth Japan hrjs been successful
in hor war with China. She
has gained the concession of entrance
to certain ports, and tho
right of commerce with certain
districts is open to her. England
viows this with alarm. Sho would
crush Japan in an instant if sho
dared, but tho combined powers of
the world will not permit it. England
has no hold on her from a
monoy point of view, and Japan,
standing freo and untrammeled,
sho will como out from tho ora of
ignorance into tho ago of progress
as tho mightiest power of tho orient.
England is helpless. Sho cannot
crush her as sho did China, when
that nation tried to close its ports
to tho Indian opium. England
closed hor silver mints in India,
but Japan held out. Today Japan
is going forward with a strido that
is surprising. Thero havo been as
many spindles put up in Japan in
tho last two years as thero havo
been in England in tho last five
years. How England will try to
crush Japan is not known, but sho
will do all in her power to stop her
growth, as sho foresees that an em
piro is building up in tho cast that
is directly antagonistic to her, so
far as monoy basis is conoorned.
It will bo tho orient against tho oc
against gold; and the
practical demonstration, even for
this short time, shows tho groat
value of silver as a monoy motal.
Income Tax Nullified.
The income tax is declared unconstitutional
In tho concluson of its decision
tho court held:
First: "Wo adhere to tho opinion
announced thatltaxes on
tato aro indisputably direct taxes;
taxes on rents or income or real
estato aro equally direct taxes.
Second: We aro of tho opinion
that taxes on personal property,
or tho income on personal property,
aro likewise direct taxes.
Third: A tax imposed by sect
ions 27 to 37i inclusivo, of tho act of
1894, so far as it falls on tho income
from real and on personal
property, being a direct tax within
tho meaning of tho comstitution,
is therefore unconstitutional and
void, bocauso not apportioned
