CAPITAL KOTES. Eumor That the Supreme Court Decision IN THE INCOME TAX CASES Will be Adverse to the GoTernment. Treasury Receipts and Expenditures for the Month of March Nhow That the Treasury U Holding Itl Own Sixty Employes of Bullion Department , Discharged. Washington, April 1. Saturday wm "consultation day" in the supreme court of the United States, and it is stated on good authority that a vote was taken on the important questions involved in the income tax cases. There is a possibility, therefore, that the decision of the court will be an nounced to-day, but in that case there will probably only be a general an nouncement of the principles decided, the members of the court reserving the rig-nt to file their written opinions in support of their views at some later period. It is known positively that the su preme court is divided upon the sub ject, but in what'proportion cannot, of course, be stated, as in that cuse the decision of the court would be known. Some portion of the law, it is thought, may be declared void while other por tions may be upheld, as the question is so placed in the court that it is not necessary for it to declare the law in toto either constitutional or void. The occurrence of frequent "leaks" in connection with supremo court de cisions within the past three months gives an air of credibility to rumors afloat as to the nature of the decision. The decision of the court in the trust case was known three weeks before it was delivered; and the decision in the liates refrigerator case, incidentally carrying with it important principles in telephone patents now pending in the courts, was known on the Satur day before the decision was announced on the following Monday. In view of these facts, rumors origl nating in the same quarter stating that the court would decide the case adversely t the government are being passed around with more credence than such rumors usually receive. Government officials, however, expect the law to he sustained. Controller Howler has decided that the bullion roll of the treasury depart ment i no longer legal and the sixty people, mostly women, upon it have been dismissed. These ladies were employed in counting money sent in for redemption. The worlc will have to be done by details of clerks from the several bureaus. Many affecting scenes were witnessed Saturday when the final discharges were made. The clerks on this roll were not in the civil service classification and for that rea son the roll has been a place for fa vored friends of statesmen possessing influence. The official monthly statement ol treasury receipts and expenditures for March, which will be issued to-day, will show that the treasury has been nearly able to hold its own during the month. The excess of expenditures over receipts will be less than 8750,000. For the fiscal year to date the defi ciency will be stated at 837,000,000 in round figures. The Armistice llatineil. London, April 1.

When found the body w as wrapped in a large piece of canton flannel, such as is sometimes used as a piano cover. LOST IN A GALE. Two Sailor Swept From a Sinking Ship. The Kent of the Crew Kcsriied.

All night long the crew werj kept at the pumps, but the water gained con tinually on the pumps. On the morn ing of the :3Sth a huge sea boarded the sch oner forward and came rushing aft. sweeping all before it. Three men at the pumps were caught up and swept overboard in the twinkling of an eye. One of them.
