Tho Constitution of Virginia pro vldes that taxation shall be equal and ^ uniform, and In proportion to the as- ' .1 value of the pronenty. It also rdvlde's that there may he a tax on all Incomes in excess of SGOO a year. It a State tax on incomes is just, why Is :'. ; n Kederul tax on incomes also just? | There are taxes on lineal and col? lateral inheritances, by many of the S'trtit :". end the U. ft. Imposes a grad? uated tax on nil inheritances, lineal and collateral, according to the amount Inherited; and the degree of kin of the jenelleiary lo the deceased. If lhc3C are just r.nd constitutional exactions, how docs an income lax become uncon? stitutional?, The Federal Constitution say.-. "Rep rci n ?entntlves and direct laxes shall he apportioned among the several pr.es according to their respective mtmbcr?,"?Article I., Section II.,cl luse ::. and Ihe same Article, Section VI 11., ClriUEc 1, says that "Congress shall have r'owcr to lay nnd collect taxes, littles, Imposts and excises; " * * but all duties, Imposts and excises shall be uniform ... ili'-ou-.-i- iir the United vtgfapjtr. amply empower the Federal Government to raise all need? ed revenue, precisely ha any Indepen? dent Steje or nation may, subject only to the provisions stipulated; that all direct 1 taxes shall be apportioned among '4he Stales according to num? bers, and that duties, imposts and ox clses shall be uniform throughout the An Income-tax is not a direct t :r. even though laid on Income derived from lands, or real estate, beculiss It Is epuratc and dlotinot therefrom. Is no nibstanlial part thereof, and is person? 1! property, subject to nil tho laws af :'< S such property. However, the ax may be regarded ns a duty. Im? post, or excise, and as such must be. "uniform throughout tho U: S." A limited or graduated tax does not ase to bo uniform. In tiie sense of tho constitution, because It varies ncciord Ing to the nmount 'taxed, or has a limited nppllcRtll'ori, provided that the eatlatlons and limits arc equally rco Ighktoii nnd enforce.I on all persons .vithln th,- f. S. Thus a graduated tax nay bo uniform, pp applied to all In? heritances everywhere in the union, r. I such a lax, or an Income-tax, lim? ited (as in Virginia) only to Incomes sxeeodlng $600 a year, or to any unount, so thcit it uniformly apply to II pi .sons and ail Incomes?the mil ioi aii cq'unHy profiling by the exemp? tion lo Ihe limit fixed ($600, $ii.O00, or ?vhatcver) with the man whose Income I s me. exceed the- limit. Men pay taxrs not only on properly ?fom which they obtain no income', ; which !s an expense In them; and I Is but fair that they who arc so for ? urato ns to derive an Income from '..

"THE MACHiNE." / ' '". ' Tho machine, or the "dous ex mac h In a" of Virginia polities. Is the official sclf-porpetuntlng organl7.a.tlon of the Stale'Democratic parly, Includ? ing not only the State Committee, but many, If net most, of tho county and city committees, olTlce-hqld'era and of? fice-seeker?, together with Martin's original corporation sponsors and back? ers lit 1S93. This, in answer to our es? teemed contemporary, the Petersburg Index-Appeal, which says: "if the machine is not the State Com? mittee, which Is the Democratic party by representation, and It Is not the Democratic people, pray who la It? it Is paying Mr. Martin too high a com pllfrierVt to say that he alone Is the whole machine. I.el the shrlokers be explicit, -and tell us definitely who (the machine is. and where it Is.',' And this definition of the machine, the Virginlan-Pilot had repeatedly i given before our contemporary enun? ciated ys inquiry. Hut, If our contem? porary considers our answer tog com? prehensive, we are quite Willing to con? fine It to the oillelalliy of the Demo? cratic party of Virginia, -and even to admit that some (,f those olllclal mem- ; hers "are not In it,"?being over-ruled by certain "bosses," or b<?ing quietly indifferent to what is* done by their, committees, perhaps having Implicit confidence In their older, or more ex perienced colleagues. Doesn't our contemporary know liow a parly organization 'inevitably be? comes n machine, run by a few com lnlttec-tnen. who are active, pushing and presuming and assuming1, and often by one man, who ''bosses" the job? Ii first is a clo.se. self-pcrpetunting body, who prnctleully appoint themselves, nit nothing is m?re distasteful to the aver? age good citizen than to meddle in par? ty politics. Most of the members of every committee accept their positions. up"ii the expressed or understood con? dition that the committee may have their names, provided that they are not bothered and that the experts do the work or tpaustet the business Sooner or later, as said, this results In a ruling few, or In a "boss." And it Is this organization, so developed, or evolved, that becomes the machine,? as many notable examples are extant In American politic?: and to this com? pletion has th.-- nf'Vlal organization of the Virginia Democracy come at last. Under tha "infamous rule," (as our cohtomporttr'y calls \o of the election laws of this State. Ami this is the ma? chine of which Martin and,his cabal have got control. I Wlv> is the "boss?" Ah. there we are a less. It Is rtulte possible that ho Is hot of dhe official organization, but. much worse, ah outside agent of the corporations that furnish tho machine with tho oil of cash! as was proved and confessed, to some extent, in ISflX Enough Is known to discredit this or? ganization; er machine, nt all events: and everybody knows that It is for Martin, as Ih ? city and county com? mittees, for the most part, have also shown themselves to be; and It Is cor tnin that it MUST decide all questions submitted to it. or ?:" which it assumes jurisdiction.

Hut rays the Iiidii.'c-Api sal further: "The Itlehmond Dispatch professes : ? i'ecover in the recent Senatorial cam? paign in th:s Hintes evidences t>f the lovelopment <?!' public sentiment vlndi? sating the action of the May m.r? meeting.

"YOU R LYING REPORTS.'' it la said 'in the authority of a high naval o(lieor on the Asiatic ittatlon, that Dewey and Oils wore nt dagger's points, ?-.o to speak, about ilie ndmlhlutraitlon of Filipino affairs before the Admiral re? al vtal to come home. Otis, f ?r reason* ' st known to himself, directed all lh< lesed riorts to be ripened to trade; bin ? |hts led to Immense frauds and allied the so-called Insurgents largely, Dewey took tho responsibility of ordering his ?hlps and gunboats to disregard nil len ranees from those ports and direct? ed that they should be descd. Otis ttjqulesced; though Governor Qeiicr?l, .?;< he dnrcd not light tho blunt Admiral, ivho It 1st raid, denounced his ofllcial rs |>orts to Washington, t<? his teeth, as The government' having purchased hlrlecti SpnnisVi nunbcats. Otis seized l:em. intiiiiicd them as. h<-> could; and prop scd to 11315 tho-iii lo put down imuffgllng. &c., and it i& Bald thai In ?iime conference between h>m and Dewey at which Dewey denounced hla reports as "lying," the Admiral put an etui to OUb' naval operations; by do- j cluring: f ' "if these glmboats come out of'tho Paslg river,. manned as you,.prpposc, I will seize them no a menace to public safety." The gunboats.we're then saon distributed among thu vessels of .the lleet as auxiliaries In blockade duty. A letter from a naval ofllcer on duty in the Philippine waters, says (accord- . ins to the Washington correspondence of-the N. Y. Tribune): "Spaniards kept very few ports open, I nnd trade with others represented per? sonal emoluments, it was not a qucs- < tion merely of revenue to tho State., Men are mortal even if they are not Spaniards or 'friendly natives.' and un- j loss tho mutter Is handled quickly and sternly and an accounting called for. ' there will be an administration ms.fill d "out hero which In spots?and large ? spots?will bo as scandalous as any- : thing ever known to Spain. "There are already ominous whispers of financial Irregularities, but ih<> cen? sor system is all-pervading. Wash ng ton should net promptly to prevent ilc inorallzutloii later. "Admiral Dewey.Presldent Rchurman, Denby and Worcester recognized he full capability of tho Filipino for self go.vernmcnt In local affairs- Otis dis? sents. The insurgent control of all the ordinary domestic hdmitilstratl >n Is strong nnd perfect. At out-of-the-way places the postman makes his rounds ns regularly ns In Manila. They even have distinctive postage stomps. The clearances are rubber-stamped, the in surgent star replacing the Spanish ?rown. This systematic control is due to the fact that all the subordinate otli ??ials In Spanish times were Filipinos, and Agulnuldo had a working mnohlno ?amply by promoting the head dorks and deputies In nil branches of the gov? ernment hot wholly In the hands of natives." THE PURCHASE OF JUDGESHIPS Judges of tho City of Now York, for the most part, pay round sums for their judicial oflli.es. 13efo.ro the Maze I investigating committee, Justice Pat? tenion, of the Appelate Division of the Supreme Court, testified that ho paid several thousand dollars for his elec? tion, ho could not recollect exactly how much. Justice Gildcrsleove paid $-1.000 as election-expenses. Justice Glcgerlch said that he paid Tammany Had the sum of $5,000. Justice Scott paid out ?55,0.10 In his election, and It must be said that his account was put down, or run up, "mighty flue." Justice. Bisch?fe paid 510.000 to Tam? many Hall for his election. ' Weil might he expressa the opinion that ju? dicial candidates should be exempt from such black-mail. They put It lb him "steep." Justice Mo A dam also paid $10,000 on his nomination; and Justice Dugro "had it socked to him" to the tune of $10,000. He, too, thought it would be a good thing lo have a law forbidding such assessments. Justice Fltzgei'iild paid $10,000, and lie agreed with Justice Dugro. Justice Beach paid Dick Croker $i,0G2. Jus? tice lieckman paid $4,<97; Justice rrtiax paid $1,500; and only one, Jus? tice McLean, said it had never been hinted that he was to pay anything, oil. Justice!_ The English wits used to make a dcai of fun of the sturdy Briton's passion for "respectability." \>"e have largely nhcritcd this passion; and, although t often exhibits some ludicrous traits, t Is a gocd tiling, on the whole, V v those who have no higher motives nor aspirations.
