' Tho decision to-day was made In
J tho caso of Urushaber versus tho
Union Pacific, brought because tho
law collected taxes prior to the date
1 on which It went Into effect, because
It collected taxos at tlio source and
because, it was churRod, It Is discrim

duo process of Ijlw,
Tho Rru.it powers of legislative

'by Chief JuBtlco Whlto in tho docl-i

this case, Chief Justice White said:
"So far oh theso numerous and
minute, not to Bay In many respects
hypothetical, contention ore based
upon an assumed violation of tho uni
formity clause, their want of legal
merit is at once apparent, alnce It ts

a oemhtanco of ground In any of the
propositions for assuming that a vio

"Ho far ns tho duo process clause
of tho Fifth Amendment Is relied
upon, It suffices to say that there
Is no basis for such reliance, alnco It
Is equally well sotllod that such
clause la not a limitation upon the
taxing power conferred upon Con
grcsH by tho Constitution: In other
words that tho Constitution does not
conflict with Itself by conferring upon
tho ono hand a taxing power and tak
ing the samo power away on the
other hand by tho limitations of the
duo process clause.
And no change In tho situation hero
would arise even If It be conceded, as
we think It must be, that this doctrine
would havo no application In a case
where, although there was a nremlng
exercise of the taxing power, tho uct
complained of wim so nrbltrarv ni tn

not tlio exertion or taxation but a con

propositions relied upon In tho re
motest degree present such questions.
"It Is true, as It is elaborately ln
I'stcd, that although there bo no ex

must bo treated as) wanting In due
"Hut the proposition disregards the
fact that In the very early history of

such authority was exerted In some,
If not all, of tho various Income taxes

you think wo can let that stutcn.ent
go without comment? To work eleven
hours a day is excessive and exhaust

nucessary to dUicps thu Injury of such
Jong hours to a girl approaching tlio
critical period of adolebcence.
"Ono of tho arguments urged ugalnst
the Keating bill was that tho ma
chines had been built especially for
very small children, and that' If you
put a grown man to work on thcso
machines built for babies ho would

One manufacturer observed nagely at
this hearing that you cannot tlx un

than you can tell when a pig becomes

tho blood of a twenty-thrce-months-
old baby bad almost entirely turned
to water within two days, and ber

blood to keep hor alive, surgeons nt
thu Howard Hospital performed what
Is said to bo un exceedingly rare oper
ation. Ilcllevlng nu Infection of the
spleen to bo tho cause of thn strangu
malady, this organ was removed. The
Infant Is expected to recover.
Tho child, Itublul Cosfoi, the
daughter of I'rter Cosfoi, a grocer, of
No. DIG South Flghth Street, was
brought to the hospital on Dec. 31 last,
suffering from pneumonia. Ily last

Then tho physlrlan noticed a sudden
Dr. Martin, who was assisted by Dr.
S. M. Moorohcud, Junior surgeon at
tho hospital, and Dr. F. J. I'esaolano,
a resident physician, decided that the
Infant was too near death to risk tho
operation. Its rondltlon wus ex
plained to tho father, lie was told
that a transfusion of blood might
savo hor. At once Cosfoi volunteered
as much of his blood iih necessary,
Tho transfusion of blood took place

condition wus such that It seomcd
likely alio would dlo within a few
hours. Tho blood was taken from a
vein in the left arm of the father and
Injected into tho left thigh of tho
child. Only onu-third of a pint of
healthy blood was taken, but tho Im
provement was wonderful, imme
diately tho child, which was uncon
scious during tho transfusion, showed
signs of life.
Within two hours Dr. Martin do
cldcd the spluen should be removed at

tho operating loom again and for
nearly an hour tlm surgeons worked
