But Mr. Stephens will resist the at
tempt to commit the Democrats to a
light wine and beer programme. He
opposes Bryan's government ownership

the treaty of peace.
'I am opposed to any form of govern

been pioposed," he said.

ness and draw Incomes from safe In

he, "bctweon earned and unearned In
come," Ifo declared himself opposed to
all tax free bonds.
If after a two year period of private
ownership the railroads failed to func
tion properly, Sir. McAdoo said, he, would
favor reopening the railroad question.
He declared for a "fair trial" of tho new
railroad law, hut 'admitted It "cannot

"You can say this that William C.
Procter Is tho chairman of Gen. Wood's
campaign committee, for the entire
United States." That was the statement
Col. Procter made In Chicago last night,
.after a long conference with Gon. Wood
on the controversy as to whether ho or
Frank St. Hitchcock ehall have supreme
control of tho practical sldo of the cam
paign. "Sir. Hitchcock bears no official ca
pacity on the committee." Col. Procter
added. "That Is how matters stand now.
.lust what might happen In the near
future none of ufl knows."
It appears, thorefore, that the con
troversy stlH stands without decision.
Another despatch from Chicago stated

Although Gen. AVood refused to ills
cuss the reported lack of Harmony
among his campaign directors, n. tele
gram to the Wood Kastern headquarters
from tho Chicago headquarters yester
day quoted Gen. Wood as saying tha
story of a split Is without foundation
and the fabrication of enemies of his
candidacy. He was quoted also as say
ing he Is pleased with the manner In

Washington, April 25. It cost the
Government only about one-half of one
per cent, to collect all of Its Internal
revenue taxes during the fiscal year
Figures on the cost of collection of the
war. Income and other taxes were made
public by the Internal Revenue Bureau
to-day In answer to teports that a great
proportion of the taxes collected were
expended in the collection costs.
The actual rntlo. it is Kt.-.tr.i u r.i
cents on each $ 100. The ratio will In
crease this year, However, with prohi
bition enforcement greatly enlarging the
non-revenue producing activities of the
Revenue Bureau.

this sum, but of all other revenue Wl
of which, such as the child labor tax, Is
not expected to be commensurate with
the cost of administration as well as
the cost of operation of the many non
revenue functions the bureau is called
upon to perform. The actual ratio of
cost in the collection of the Income tax
Is less therefore than 33 cents for every

Mobile. Ala., April 23. The Income
tax bill of Alabama has been declared
unconstitutional by the State Supreme
Court, according to a message from
Slontgomery. The law was declared un
constitutional by Circuit Judge B. Sf.
Sillier of the Fourth Alabama Circuit
Court, and It Is now upheld. It means
that thousands of dollars will bo taken
fiom the State Treasury.
According to rumor, Gov, Kllby will
have to call an extra session of the Ala.
bar.ia Legislature to provide new ma
chinery for collecting revenue.
son are the only contenders for the prcf
erence. Wood has a complete slato of
delegates pledged to hltn.
Senator Johnson has candidates for
two delegates at large and has asked his
supporters to vote for Senators Walter
K. Ldgo nnd Joseph S. Freyllnghuysen
who are running for the "Big Four'
Wjtbout pledge. Johnson has candidates
for district delegates In all except thtee
St the twelve Congress districts.
The two bis Issues In tho New Jersey
campaign have been prohibition and con
trol of the Republican State organiza
tlon. The AVood managers, who have
been playing him as an advocate of pro
hibition and the Eighteenth Amendment
in New Jersey have represented him as
having most liberal Ideas on the subject.
On the other hand there has been cir
culated the Information that Senator
Johnson voted for the Eighteenth
Amendment and nljo for the Volstead
enforcement act. Tho Wood managers
say they have not been responsible for
this, hut they were not nt all displeased
at the effect It has had In a State
which is strongly wet, as shown by
the election of a wet Governor, a Demo
crat, although the Republicans carried
the State Legislature.
The Wood managers at the Hotel Im
perial say they will rapture the entire
twenty-eight delegates In New Jersey.
The Johnson people say that their can
didate will surely carry the Presidential
preference vote, as he did In Stlchlgan.
Nebraska nnd North Dakota, and Hint
this will cany with It the votes of the
delegation In Chicago.
Advices from Washington are that the
Wood inopaganda has not gone well,
and that Senator Poindexter Is certain
of an indorsement at the State conven
tion. At headquarters heie It was stnted
last night that they would be satisfied
with second choice position.
They are confident enough at the
Wood headquarters to claim the eight
votes of Idaho, with the gentle proviso
that "if Borah wins all the delegates"
Wood will be second choice.
On Wednesday Arkansas elects thir
teen delegates at a Slate convention in
Little Rock. There are no claims there
for Wood. Advices there are that the
delegation may be split, olevctf for Gov.
lowden and two for Wood.

Asldo from the Sonora Stale govern
nunt, only two State executives havo
repudiated the present administration,
these being Gtn. Bnrlque Estrada. In
the State of Zacatecas, and rasqual
Ortiz Rublo, In the State of Sllchoacan.
Both of these executives, however, have
failed to attract any great following and
are being pursued by loyal forces.
IXrndn Cited for Treason.
The State Legislature In Zacatecas
has repudiated the attitude of Estrada
and cited him for treason, while the
Sllchoacan Legislature has unseated
Ortiz Rublo and named Piimo Serratila
Slercadm as his successor.
The situation In Slnalo.v Is considered
non-relative to the rebellious activities,
as Gen. Ramon Itttrbe, Governor of that
State, has ptotested his loyalty and la
using what forces are available to check
the Increasing Incursions of tho Sonora
troops Into Slnaloa until teenforcementi
tan reach hltn.
The present whereabouts of (Jen. Al
varo Obregon, the former War .Minister,
who Is slated for the Presidency of
Mexico by the Sonorn tebels, and Gen.
Benjamin Hill, his campaign leader. Is
uncertain, the official war office state
ments fulling to locate them.
The genetal belief Is tint both rebel
leaders, who left Mexico City two wreks
ago upon receipt of reliable advices that
Soiioih had lebelled, fled toward the
Pacific coast by way of Mlchoacan. Ap
paiently 'Gen. Hill remained behind
Obregon, for the purpose of leunltlng If
possible tli9 Fcatteied bands of Zapatis
tas In Slorelas. Nothing Is feared ftom
this scheme, as the Mexico City garil
fon numbers about ten thousand men.
The supposition that Obregon Is mov
ing toward Sonora bv way of Sllchoacan
and Guerrero is given support by 1 lie
fact that the Government or Orltz Rublo
left Jlorella, rasital of the State of
Sllchoacan, nt tho head of a small force

While the political situation has been
driven entirely Into tho background by
tho Sonora revolt the attitude assumed
by tho Presidential candidates has lie'n
the subject of congratulatory edltotlals
by tho newspapers supporting the Gov
ernment. Both Ignaclo Uonlllas, who
Is n native of Sonora, and Gen. Pablo
Gonzales havo denounced Sonora's ac
tion and reiterated their loyalty to the
constituted Government. Neither has an
nounced his withdrawal fiom tho Presi
dential race, but unconfirmed reports
after tho Oonzales-Cananza conference
wero to the effect that Gonzales was
abotit to accept tho portfolio of War
Minister or tike tho field at the head of
a Httong nrmy.
Apparently there will bo no postpone
ment of tho Presidential elections, set
for July. Tho Coahulla State Legisla
ture recently proposed to the Vera Cruz
LeKlslatuio that tho elections bo post
poned, but the latter has failed to take
nnr, i .iiiu r-nhreni. Secretary of tho
Treasury, haw been quoted as stating
that n postponement at tins time is in

Sonora under the direct orders of Presi
dent Carranza, who has been commander-in-chief
of the .Mexican forces
for more than a year. Gen. Cnndldo
Agullar, who has been recalled Into ac
tive service, Is at Vera Cruz organizing
a strong column.
While the belief Is that the Govern
