Wl ASHISGTON, Feb. 3. "Direct,
taxes upon tho incomor. of
citizens of thc United States,
whether derived from idle
capital or from tho conduct of business,
were mode possible today by tho raliG
cation of thc s-ixtcenlh amendment to
tho federal constitution. Delaware.
Wyoming and Now Mexico, indorsing
tho incomo amendment through their
respcetivo legislatures, completed a list
of thirty-eight, states that havo ap
proved it, two more than tho throe
fourths noceshafy for ils final adoption.
Leaders in congress predicted tonight
that through this authorization tho law
which will bo passod to levy tho tax
upon American incomes will bo intro
duced as soon as the extra session
opens. Tts c-tact tormB havo not been
decided upon, but it is believod it will
exempt nil incomos below $4000 or
$5000, and will provide a tax of 1 per
cent on tho majority of personal in
comes that do not run to an excessive
Cordell to Draw Bill.
Informal notioo of the final adoption
of tho new amondmcnt. was given to
tho senate by Senator Brown of Ne
braska, who introduced tho resolution
in 1000 upon which tho proposal for an
incomo tax was submitted lo thc states.
Tho drafting of tho "bill to put the tax
into effect, it is expected, will fall to
tho lot of Ifoprosontativo Cordell of
Tennessee, a mcmbor of tho houso wayB
and means committco. who drew the
exciso tax bill proposed last year by thc
Democratic house of representatives,
but which d.id not becomo law.
Thc incomo tax will be designed to
supplant tho prosout corporation tax,
and will apply to tho incomcB of indi
viduals, firms and corporations. Jn a
statoment tonight f?eprosontativo Hull
declared he favored making tho now
tax an integral part of thc Snancial
system of tho United States to remain
in full forco without regard to the:
charactor of tariff bills that congress
may enact from time to lame,
Collection Plan.
Ouo feature which it is boliovod will
be included in tho law will be a pro
vision for "collecting at. the source"
of th.o incomo. This feature, now in
operation in England, would require
firms to certify amounts to pay indi
vidual in salaries and fees and pay the
tax direct to the government. It is be
lieved thufc Hub would reniovo much
complaint that might bo raised if the
government had to investigato indl.
vidual citizens and would prevent eva
sion of tho law.
"One 'of tho important results of
an incomo tax." said Representative
Hull, will bo the curbing of unneces
sary fodornl expenditures. When a
great part of tho government's income
is derived, by a direct tax upon tho citi
zens of the nation, thoy will scrutinize
moro carofully thc applications made
by congress."
Wilson May Announce.
Probably it will romaln for President-elect
Woodrow Wilson to mnkc
official announcement of tho income tax
amendment to tho constitution. Up to
dato lho slate department has ro
ceivod notices of approval by tho legis
latures of only thirty-four states. West
Virginia, Dolaware, Wyoming and
Now Mexico not having reported on
thoir action. The department ennnot
act upon anything lees than tho official
certificate of tho governors aud secre
tnvies of atato.
Even whon all the certificates arc at
haud tho executive will not bo in a po
sition fonunlly to aunounco that fact.
In a matter of this importance it is
nocessary to move with extreme cau
tion, 3iid Secrotnry Knox, tho custodian
of tho certificatoa, will rofer them to
the fiolicitor of the department of state
for examination ns to' their sufficiency.

Opinion Handed Down in
Shoe Machinery Trust Case
Sustaining the Decision
of the Court Below.
Officials of Department, of
Justice Declare Criminal
i Prosecution of the -United
Concern Will Follow.
WASHINGTON, Fob. 3. The su
premo court of tho United
States held in effect today for
the first timo that the Shor
man anti-trust law does not forbid tho
mere combining of non-competitors in
an induelry. Tho decision was given
in tho "shoe machinery trust'' caso,
iu which Solicitor General Bullitt for
tho government had contended thnt if
the combination brought into ono hand
nu "undue proportion f ' of thc trade it
was forbidden by tho anti-trust law.
"Thc disintegration aimed at by the
statute does not extend to reducing all
manufacture to isolated units of thc
lowest degree," declared Justice
Holmes in announcing thc unanimous
decision of tho court that tho mere
organization of the United Shoo Ma
chinery company by tho heads of sev
eral non-competing groups of shoe
manufacturers had not been a violation
of tho law.
Question of "Intent."
Tho justice continued lo say that it
is, as lawful for ono corporation to
make "ovory part of a'stoam engine
and to put tho mnchinory together as
It would bo for ono lo make the
boilers and another to make tho
wheels."' In explanation of this con
cise statement of iaw Jio referred to
tho court's recent Minnesota creamery
decision, and iho older Swift & Co.
decision, in which it was held that
an "iuteut" is nccossarj' as an cle
ment of an attempt to monopolize.
The bringing of non-competing
branches of a trade into juxtaposition
alono by moans of a corporation, ho
said, In substance, did not furnish suffi
cient "intent" to rniso tho conduct to
the dignity of an attempt to monopo
lize. Criminal Prosecution.
Despite today's decision, officials of
the department of justice declared that
the United Shoe Machinery oompany
would bo prosecuted for tho alleged
criminal violation of tho Shorman law
under the ono remaining count of thc
iudictmcnts returned against tho com
pany, the validity of which waB
sustained by tho lower court. That
count, which was not before tho su
premo court, charged in effect that the
company was monopolizing tho in
dustry by combination, by tying the
various shoe machinos together, by thc
destruction of competition, and by tho
acquisition of competitors' business.
Officials vigorously maintained that the
decision did not affect the govern
ment's caso on this count.
Point Not Considered.
Tho strongest feature of the govern
mentis effort to show an unlawful com
bination in restraint of trade, said So
licitor General Bullitt, was tho " ty
ing clause of thc agreements by
which it is alloged that tho company
sought to compel shoe manufacturers to
buy machines from it and none othor.
That quostion, ho declared, was not
considered by tho court bocauso the
lower court had interpreted the indict"
meats involved in today's decision as
referring solely to tho organization of
the United Shoo Machinery company.
Attorneys for tho department said the
decision would not oft'oct any other
pending anti-trust suits.
J30BTON, Feb. 3. United States Dlo
trict 'Attorney Ana P. French, who has
chargo of the government's case against
tho United Shoo Mnchinory company,
eald tonight that today's adverse de
clolon of the United States supremo
court, which sustained United States
DUtriot. Judge Putnam of Boston in
throwing out two of tho five counts in
the two lndictmonts against the com
pany, did not affect tho merit of the
controversy. Mr. French paid:
