T1 LICOU TAX CASES.
Points Preuented na Brie Subsmitted
t. the Sapremie Ceurt.
A brief has been filed in the United
States Supreme Court on a motion to ad
vance the New York income tax cases now
pending there. Tne following points are
1. "The bill presents a proper case for
equity interposItion. A court of equity has
Juribdiction at the instance of a stockholler
in a corporation te restrain a threatened
areach of trust on the part of the director
volurtarity paying and not resisting the
Collection of an unconstitutional tax. The
con-titutional question is necessarily in
vohled in the decision of these cases.
Nuanerous decisio a are cited, in one of
which. Shelton agt. Pratt. 129 U. R. 51.
Mr. Chief Justice Fuller stated the follow
ing directjy in point:
"The ground upon which Dodge agt.
Woolsey proce-ded was that a stockholder
had a remedy in chancery against the di
rectors of his corporation to restrain them
orw doing acts which w.ould amount to a
violation of the charter, or to prevent
any misapplication of their capital or
profits, which might lessen the value of
the shares, if the acts intended to be done
amounted to a breach of trust or duty, and
that the refusal of the directors to assist
the collection of a tax. which they them
selves believen to bve been imposed upon
them in violation of their charter, was in
legal effect a breach of trust.
:. "in addition to thi element of breach
of trust on the part of directors, there is
also presented in the cases at bar the cer
tainty that as lorag as the various ques
tions presented remain undecided by the
Supreme Court of the United States the
failure to conteit the act will involve mul
tiplicity of suits with shareholders of the
trust companies, as well as with the bene
ficiaries for whcm it is acting as trustee.&c.
3. "The unconstitutionality of the law is
asserted upon several grounds. First, in
that it imposes a direct tax with respect
of real estate. rents, issues and profits, as
well as of Ircome a id profits of personal
property. which, not being apportioned, is
in violation of section 2, article 1 of the
Constitution. Second. in that its provisions
are not uniform throughout the United
States,and it provides for elemptions and In
equalities in violation of section 8, article
10. rhird. in that It makes no exemption
of the tax upon Incomes derived from the
stocks and bonds of states, counties and
municipal cities, which amounts to $5,").,
N0O annually, and which is not a proper
subject for the taxing power of Congress."
Counsel for Mr. John G. Moore of New
Tork, who was recently denied an injunc
tion by Justice Hagner. in Equity Court
No. 2, against Commissioner of Internal
Revenue Miller. to prohibit the collection
of the income tax, took st-ps yesterday tfor
earrying the case to the Court of Appeals.
It Is. understood to be the Intention of the
complainant to ca-ry the case to the Su
reeCourt of the U'nited States unless
Se btansa favorable decision sooner.

An Old Race Seandal Recalled.
Frank L. Noble, formerly owner of the
famous trotting stallion, Alcyron, died at
his home at Grand Rapids, Mich., yester
day, aged forty-five years. He had been
suffering from kidney trouble, and had
been confined to his bed for ten days. In
August, 18"0, when the stallions, Alcyron
and Nelson, were matched at Beacon
Park, Boston, Noble is said to have sold
the race-allowed Nelson to win-for 5,000,
for which the owners, drivers and horses
were expelled by the National Trotting
Association. Nelson and his horse were
reinstated two years ago, and Alcyron and
his driver, George Rtobens, were temporar
ily reinstated last fall, but Noble's appli
cation for reinstatement was denied. He
brought suit against the association for
$25,000) damages, but failed to appear when
the case was ready for trial. Alcyron is
now owned by a stock company and
i.i in charge of Robens, who expects to
put him in training in the spring.

The Proposed Inebriate Asylum.
To the Editor of The Erening Star:
Having read Mr. Meredith's bill intro
duced in the House to provide for an asy
lum for inebriates, I so heartily join with
him in his proposition that I cannot re
frain from saying that I am one of many
who wish and pray for this very thing con
tinually. I think this subject has been given
less attention heretofore than any otherand
no one knows but the mothers, sisters and
daughtersof drinking men how very much
in need we are of an institution of this
kind. Money is always provided for the
welfare of young men and women In al
most every other branch, and surely no
building could be erected that would be of
more comfort and save so much distress
to many people as one of this nature cer
tainly would. In this particular instance
It is the case of a heart-broken mother,
whose son is very infirm and weak, and
his only falling exists in submitting to
demon drink, abd he -Is so often allured
Into intoxication that he consequently suf
fers the same penalty as the criminal. Is
it right that one whose only weakness is
in overstepping his capacity for drink
should be thrown with the infamous and
those devoid of character? Has it ever
been known to reform or better any such
person? I don't see how It could. It is,
most undoubtedly, the worse for them. I
most emphatically recommend, with many
other sufferers of the same kind, that

possible. D. H.

Cough ! Cough I! It's the
hacking cough that often ends
in the most serious trouble,
e i e da
stops the cough at once by
removing the cause and thus
prevents the trouble. Put two
teaspoonfuls of this good old
remedy in a small cup of
molasses, take Yj teaspoonful
often and your cough will
quicely cease. Sold every

the quantity of Pain-Killer for
the same old price.
