A TAX ON SUCCESS.
OPPOSITION TO THE INHERITANCE TAX BILL GROWING. CITY OFFICIAI?? AND PROFEBSIONAL AND BP3I NES8 MEN AGAINST IT AMD NO DEMAND FROM OTHRRS-. FOR IT?EFFECT ON THIS I'OUMEIlClAl. EMINENCE OF NEW-YORK. It Is a long time, possibly, eine?? an opposition eo attcng ?nd detonataMd was levelled at any bill In tho hands of the Governor hh that which haa de? veloped against tho Graduated Inheritance Tax bill. How a man of tho supposed lnteillgf BOS and political sagacity of State Controlar Roberts should stak.? his chance of a nomination und election to the highest office of the Empire State on a mean ure so Inequitable and unjust le something that tho keent?et politicians have been unable to Baderete nd. "Kvery day." said President li.irk.r of lh.? Tax Department yesterday, "men of property who come Into this office, on business te',1 me that their ar? rangements are made, and that If the Inheritance Tax bill becomes a law their place of residence will be onftSMe of New-York. ? well-known citizen, who has paid the city on personal nssc.iMnents for more than a Quartet of a century, told me to-d;.y that If Governor Blaofe signed this bill I might be eure that he hud paid his last personal taxes in New-York. Theie is no question in my mind that the worst pooelbte conseipiences to the public treuta ury await tho enactment of this Inheritance tax. The Tax Coinmlssii tiers of New-York se?? only a de? pletion of taxable property as the result of this scheme. This un be readily a?eoompilahod either by electing a ehang? ot rea ?dance ?? .'mother Stato or the citizen may divide up his property among his heirs before his deatb It Is no secret that the last-named method has b? ? ? employed by more than one rich man who died In thla city recently. "But the worst effect of this bill Is that It would drive out of New-York, to spend their money and to pay their taxes in other States, people of wealth Who Would under reasonable? conditions remnln here, pay their taxes here, spend their money line and die her?? The effect of such a law is to drive men of capital and their money ont of New-York No severer blow could be dealt the public trefis ury." A VICIOVS BILL. Mayor Strong said ?jroatatday that he had ex? pressed It as his opinion on the day that State Con? troller Robert?'? proposition was made public that it would result in harm, though good might be in? tended. "The Graduated Inheritance Tax Mil." continued the Mayor. "Is the most vicious bill that has passed the legislature for a long time. There I? no good rer.son for its becoming a low. Th? present law hr??- had a tendency to drive some of our wealthy people out of the city and get them into the habit of sending their money out of the State. This drastic measure will drive many more away and cause wealthv citizens to adopt for hones country placea OUt of the State that most of them own, in? su nd of remaining resident? of New-Tor*?. City. I hope that the Governor will discover the true facts and will efe that the bill Is opposed to the best Interests of our people." Corporation Counsel Booti said that the bill was dearly ? the Une t Socialism, and could not be de? fended on any other line of reasoning. "I have," said he, "adviaed against Its becoming a law as preju? dicial to tne interest! of both the city and State." Controller T'itch said yesterday: "I do not think that I have ani thing to add to my letters written to Governor Black aererai week? ago protesting against his permittir.tr this Inheritance Tax bill to become a law, TlM Governor, If he considers Its ef? fect upon the prosperity of the State, must refuse to approve such a bill. Unless he desires to promote the Interests of adjacent States at the expense of the people of New-York he will withhold his slgna MR, GITHRIE'S OPINION. William P. Ontario, of the law firm of Seward. Guthrie, MorametS ?fc Steele. has BUbmltted nn argii ment to the Governor wherein are shown many pertinent nnd conclusive reasons w.iy the bill should not become a law. la the first place Mr. (?uthrle draws attention to the vast Injury such a measure would do by drivlm* capital to other States, which would work to the ultlmite detriment of all classes, whether farmer or mechanic, In country OT eity. Mr. Outhrie assorts that the proposed tax would he un? constitutional because It Is unequal In its operation and does not tax property or the rlisht of succession upon any uniform or Just basis. Taxpayers, he con? tends, cannot lawfully he divided Into classes and assessed at different rates according to tho amount of property owned by them. While agreeing ?bat the Stato may classify property and claaalfy rights and privileges, Mr. Outhrie draws attention to tho fact that the question at Issue. Is not whether the Legis? lature may select a particular class of property for taxarlon, but whether it can prescribo rules of taxa? tion upon like property or like privileges which shrill vary according to tho wealth of the owner. If such right exists, what -protection, he asks, Is thero against spoliation or confiscation at the will or ca? price of th? Legislature: and If the right to dis? criminate In the least exists, where Is the limit or check or protection? Mr. Outhrio quotes precedents coming from the highest courts In the land laying down the de? cision that arbitrary selection can never bo Justi? fied, by calllw? lv classification, and that such action Is expressly torMddetl In the equal protec? tion damanded by ttM Fourteenth Amendment. In IllliiolB, for Instance, the graduated tax, much more resonabl?* than that proposed In the Dudley bill, was declared unconstitutional and void by judge Callar, who shews by reference to other leading cases that any legislation with reference to taxation which do?* not tend toward equality or uniformity, by approximation at least, ought not to be sustained. in concluding his opinion Judge Carter sa.d: "Believing, ns I do strongly, in the ?Xundnmantnl idea of a tax-inheritance law, and that when such s law is properly drawn it Is one of the most satisfactory method? of taxation, it is with great reluctanco that I have been forced to the conclusion that the classification attempted in this law causes unjust discrimination between persona, Is arbitrary, unreasonable and not i<as?-?i upon sound principi?? of public policy, and that tho law must bo held unconstitutional." ALL AOAINST IT. Matthew C. D. Korden, the well-known manu? facturer of cotton cloth, when seen yesterday by a Tribune reporter In his orfico In Thomas-st., said there was no division of sentiment among the ?UPO?fill business men of the city as to the In? heritance Tax bill. "With slight variations of expression," he said, "they all talk tho same way In opposition to tho measure. It is simply one of the messi fes ?doslgiMd by country members of the Legislature to compel the property-owners of this city to pay nearly all the taxes of the Btate, One cannot help wondering h?iw far this system of ml.hing the ?ity for th- beni fit of the country distri? ts l- to 1*? carried. President Barker <?f the Tax Department Is quite righi in saying that ? ???.?. u,? ti ire? will drive men of mean? out of the State. \v?? can tranaacl business just as well outside of New-York. We are not com?>?iied to Hv? in New-York if we ar?? to be unjustly pun Ished for being successful. Why do men engage netas if it i.?? not to be successful and make money? if ihey do not want to make money they rulKht iif-tt-r k.-'-p out of buelnesa altogether. Hut thla Inheritance Tag bill Is designed not only to punish men for being auccessful In their business, but also to punish them the more according to the measure of th-ir suoeess. I live in New-York yet, but ? dm. . know hov.? long I shall continue to lit re If ? ucl . bill becomi s a law." Rbhard Deeves, the well-known and successful builder, said in hi- office, ut No. ?8 Broadway: "I hav.- i.?.;. foi ? long time that the State of New? Jork cannot collect Inheritance tax or personal tax fairly and aucceasfully. It ?Imply drives rich m.-ri nr.n wealthy corporstlona Into other Btatea wh-n it undertakes to colleci euch tax??-..

C!o\-ernor War??? la ro- j eei\jng a large number of brief.? and letters In op? position to the bill of Controller Robert? Imposing? j ? progressiv? Inheritance truc, which was presented ] to tlie Legislature by Assemblyman Dudley, of - Niagara County. Mr. Roberts, on his part, has ? submitted a brief |n su? port of the measure. It Is noteworthy that 'The Troy Times." which may bo regarded a? Mr. Blaehfe personal news- I paper ornan, Is dally attacking the measure and > giving reasons why It should fall to re??elve the , Signatur? of the Oovernor. "The Titres" frequent? ly prints four or five columns of editorial? copied from other newspapers crltlclslnff the Roberts bill. Judging from these articles, the presa of the Btate Is practically united against the measure. These attacks are not of a partisan nature. They come from Republican and Democratic newspaper? alike. All seem to be of the belief that the bill 1? not la the Inlerest of the State; that, while Its avowed aim Is to Increase the public revenue from a tax on Inherited estates, it would, on the contrary, de? crease the State's present income from that source by causing rich men to eeek residence tn other 8tates. EFFECT ON THF? TAX RATE. Any decrease of the receipts from the inheri? tance tax at this time would Incre?ane the State tax rate. If the present scale of State expendi? tures should be maintained, and it be.-me likely to be maintained owln? to the assumption by the j State of the caro of tha Indigent lnnane and of a largo number of charitable institutions, coupled with the adoption of a policy of Improving tho cannls by an expen.lltore of I^.OflO.OOO. the purchase of (A\MMB) worth of Adlrordack lands, and the immediate completion of the Capitol at a cost of B.Wtrt It was well understood when the recent State tax rate was adopt??*! that It was rather a forced one. It is 2.67 mills. Instead of 2.69 mills, as In IS!??, but In eonsciiuence of the Increased valua? tions of real an?! persona! property the lmver tax rate will produce a larger sum by tlOo.oCO. J'esld.a, this decrease of lim tax rate was only established by takln?; Si.*?'.*?? out of a surplus In the State Treasury. Th'* accumulation? of former years Were used to conceal the extent of the appropria? tions of th?? Legislature of 1W. A continuance of such a policy would exhaust the ?urplue and com? pel suddenly and without apparent reason a large Increase of tho tax rate. Any great decrease In the r?*c?rfpts from tne In? heritance tax would surely pre?-ent Governor Klack from materially decreasing the State tax rate next year, an object on which he has set hi? mind. By making the appropriation for the pur? chase of Adirondack land.* this year, and also that for the completion of the Capitol, Mr. Rlack hope? to bring about a marked reduction In th? rate next year. F.YF.9 ON THE GOVERNORSHIP. One of Mr. Illack'e motlv???? In havln? a low tax rate next year naturally will be to secure favor? able consideration for himself as a candidate for renoinlnatlon. A Republican State Con?*entlon would probably feel that It had a strong candidate for Governor In the person of a man who had great? ly reduced the tax rate. There was unanimous testimony this year from the members of the Legte latUTB, representing rural constituencies, that never wer?- the fanners of the state reeling so poor. Any lowering of taxe?, therefore, would be appreciat?-d bv them, und no doubt Mr. Dark Is conscious of the fact. It (a believed that Controller Roberts would like to use this Inheritance Tux bill. In case Mr. Dark should sign It, lo promote his own candidacy for ihe Qovernorslp, Hla line of argument, of course, would bo that ho was the author of tlie meas? ure, and therefor,, entitled to the support of those who might be favorable to lt. Mr. Roberte con? trols tin- organisation of the Republican party in Lrle County, and thus has the nUCleUB of u good deal of strength in seeking a nomination. More? over, as Controller be h.is a large number of ap? pointments all over the Stato, which may bo made Influential when Ihe time comes to select dele? gates to the state Convention of lvs. A I'lSAPPOLVTINil TAX. Mr. Roberts estimates the receipts from the In heettance tax for the fiscal year hestnlng on Octo? ber 1, 1<Jii7, at .?a/NHi.fNVl. This seeins B lame esti? mato, when ?me considera that for th? last flacal year the tax oniv brought in ei,TM,6S?*, a year ?go alati Mr. Roben? estimated he would' r-? ? ; - (fcOnO.OOO. If the Roberta bill should be signed, and the owner? ?>f many large fortune? ihould move curi of th.? stat??, the discrepancy between the esti? mated and tbe actual ?, turns from this source would proba My b<? greater than ever. That the receipts from the Inheritance tax have even under normal condition? been fluctuating Is dear from the following tab!.?

The nudlence contained many of the friends nnd relatives of the graduating class, of conree, but there were also present mitiy of the older alumni of the college, who were th'-re to testify to their Interest In the Institution and the esteem In which ihey hold Mr. Packard. There was plenty of ?rood music. The programme wa.. begun with prayer by the Rev. Or. S. De L.uic.y Towiisend. When Mr. Packard arose :o make the Introduc? tory remarks, there was a deal of hearty applause from both his older pupils and those who were graduated last evening, and it was some time he fore he could be heard. Ills brief address was full of interesting reminiscences of the earlier days of the school and of Its growth and progress. Charles Emory Smith spoke forcibly on "Brains in Business." He said in part: "It Is a double education to have had Professor Packard for a master. ills lmpr?ss Is stamped upon character M well SS upon accomplishment.
