ROBERTS AND ROB- ERT SLOAN SUSTAINED BY SUPREME COURT. Two crises in which Judges M. A. Roberts and: Robert Sloan were sus tained were handed down by the su preme court of the state of Iowa yes terday and the Iowa cigarette mulct law was again declared constitutional by the court. The case which brought out the opinion from the supreme court upon the cigarette law was from Muscatine county and was an appeal oil a suit brought in Muscatine county and was an appeal on a suit brought in that county by' R. E. Hodge, proprietor of a cigar and tobacco store, and Mrs. J. Tabor, owner of the building in which the store was located. It was a test case to enjoin the county from collect ing the mulct tax on cigarettes and the law was assailed as unconstitutional and void. The suit was dismissed in the trial court, anA then the plaintiffs appealed to the spireme court. The A stranger giving his name*as W. E. claim made by the plaintiffs in their Pelling and claiming Burlington as appeal was that section* 5007 of the his residence was in court charged. jowa code is void because it deprives, with intoxication and disturbing a or (.itizens of and paW. Property without duo process of law. It was also claimed in behalf of the plaintiffs that the law hud no provis ion for a notice to the dealer or to the real estate owner, that the charge made is in the nature of a criminal penalty and the measures provided for its collection and enforcement are not adapted to the ends sought. The claim is also set up that the attempt to en force the criminal ijgtjalty through the taxing machinery jot'^he state is revo lutionary and that the law is arbi trary and not in conformity with the provisions of the constitution. The act is "finally assailed as an attempt to regulate interstate commerce. Opinion by Justice Deemer. The opinion of the supreme court denying the force of tnese charges is written by Justjce Deemer. He holds that the contentions of the plaintiffs all revolve around the central claim that the tax amounts to the taking of property of the plaintiff without due process of law. The mulct tax. the court says, can be fairly said to bo a tax imposed on business, and because I it is imposed for the double purpose of regulation and revenue is no rea son for declaring it invalid. Affirms Lower Court. Being a tax, the court says, it was competent for the legislature to pre scribe the proceedings and process of its collection. Further, it is held that the power of taxation is inherent in its sovereignty and this power, it has been, "in its nature acknowledges no boundary." In concluding the opinion, which af firms the lower court throughout.' it is stated by the supreme court that "the unreasonableness, of the act is not a matter for our consideration. There' is nothing arbitrary in a statute which, provides for the collection of a tax by summary proceedings. Such proceed ings are necessary to secure prompt payment. They existed long before the constitution was formed and are in accord with the law of the land." A similar case, tried- some time ago from the Marshall county district court. Is now before the United States supreme cout. It was decided by the Iowa court on much the same claims which were put forth in the present claim for the unconstitutionality of the law. Other Opinions. The opinions handed down in which Judges Roberts and Soan were inter ested were as follows: Hartman Manufacturing company, appellant, vs. W. I. Luse et a!., appel lees Van Buren county: M. A. Rob erts, judcre. Affirmed opinion by Chief Justice Bishop. Suit was on forcible detention of real estate. The trial was to court with a judgment in favor of the defen dant and plaintiff appealed. James Craig vs. Wabash Railway company, appellant Appanoose coun ty: Robert Sloan, judge. Affirmed: opinion by Ladd. Craig brought suit for value of horso said to have been killed by railway at a point wheru it had right to fence, but did not do so. The jury found for the plaintiff and that the horse was killed on the crossing. FAMILY FUED ENDS FATALLY. Two Will Die as Result of Battle in Indiana Town.
