Congress Advised to Seek Constitu tional Amendment Allowing As sessment on Incomes. Recommending legislation looking to the placing of a 2 per cent tax on the net Income of corporations and also tho adoption of an amendment to the constitution providing for the Imposition of an Income tax without an apportionment among the several states. President Taft Wednesday sent to Congress a message embodying his views on the subject. This action fol lowed a protracted special meeting of the cabinet. In his message the president speaks of the apparent inability of Congress to agree to an inheritance tax, and as regards an income tax, he refers to the decision of tho Supreme Court in the case of Pollock vs. the Farmers' Loan and Trust Company, In which the court held the tax to be unconsti tutional unless apportioned according to population. "It is," Bays the presJ dent, "undoubtedly a power which the government ought to have. It might be Indispensable to the nation's life in great crises." The amendment, therefore, he de clares, is the only proper course. Such an amendment to the constitution, he contended, was preferable to the one, proposed of reviving a law Judicially declared to be unconstitutional. The amendment which he proposes should be made to the tariff bill provides for the imposition upon all corporation and Joint stock companies for profit, except national banks (otherwise tax ed), savings banks and building and loan associations, of an excise tax of 2 per cent on the net income of tho corporations. This, it is estimated by him. will bring an annual revenue oi $23,000,000. "This is a tax on privi lege and not on property," he says, "and Is within the federal power with out apportionment according to popu lation." The president points out that an other merit to the tax on corporations 13 the federal supervision, which will give to the government, the stockhold ers and the public knowledge of the real business transactions and the gains and profits of every corporation in the country. The adoption of the amendment, he says, will make a Ions sten "toward that supervisory control of corporations which may prevent a further abuse of power." MINISTERS OUST FOSTER. Expelled from Chicago Conference on Account of Heretical Views. Professor George Burman Foster on Monday was expelled from the Chica go Baptist Ministers' Conference be cause of the alleged heretical beliefs expressed in bis recent book on "The Function of Religion." After a loni; and heated debate. In which the cler gyman indulged in bitter personalities, the organization at its weekly meeting decided by a vote of 40 to 10 to drop the University of Chicago professor from its membership. The action does not affect Professor Foster's standing as a Baptist minister, but simply ad vocates disapproval of him and takes from hin the right of fellowship in the conference. Tho resolution finally passed was stripped of all unnecessary verbiage, and in such form was able to command the support of a number who disliked the sort of tactics pur sued by the foes of Professor Foster. As introduced by Rev. Johnston My ers, leader of the anti-Foster forces, the original resolution recited the var ious accusations against Professor Fos ter and declared his retention in the association injurious to the denomina tion. It also called upon the trustees of the University of Chicago to dismiss Professor Foster from the faculty of the institution. With tho consent of Mr. Myers the resolution was amended and simplified until Its final form, as passed, was as follows: "Resolved, That tho Baptist Ministers' Conference of Chicago drop Professor George Bur man Foster from its membership."

He found the church strongly guarded and the as pect threatening. It was then decided to hold the formal ceremonies of tak ing possession of the church at the hotel, and this formality was begun. The mob on the ijutslde of the hotel began making a demonstration. Threats were made to "egg" the bish op, and at the most critical .moment when it seemed that violence would be done Father Murphy arrived and pleaded with the people to commit no breach of the peace and to acquit themselves as law abiding citizens. He asked the people to protect from any violence the bishop and the priests. Father O'Brien arranged for a vehi cle to take them out of the village. Almost before the crowd knew what was being done the bishop and the two priests were loaded into the livery rig and a start was made for the country on the road to David City. The con veyance started away at a lively pace, and it was some time before an auto mobile carry representatives of Fath er Murphy's flock went in pursuit. The story told by the liveryman, who returned soon after without his pas sengers, was that he was overtaken on the road and his passengers were or. dered to get out and walk. This they did, and then the liveryman was or dered to turn about and drive to Uly ses without loss of time. It was late at night that Bishop Bonacuni and the priests went to a farmhouse for pro tection and engaged a farmer to takl them to David City. NINE KILLED IH WRECK.
