SCORES INCOME PAYS RESPECT TO HUGHES Idaho Solon Includes Governor Among Those Who Profess to Be in Favor of the Tax But Oppose Prac tical Measures. Washington, Feb. 10. Senator Wil liam K. Borah, of Idaho, took occa sion in the Senate today. to attack the position of those who oppose, accep tance by the several states of the pro poned amendment to the Constitution of the United States which would per mit the levying of a tax on Incomes without apportionment between the rtatcs. Incidentally the Senator paid his re spects to Governor Hughes, of New York, including him by Inference among those who profess to be In fa- ir of an income tax put oppose prac tical measures which would permit its enforcement. Ills allusion was of course to Governor Hughes' annual message to the New York state legis lature urging defeat of tho proposed amendment on the ground that Its language might be bo construed ns to authorize Congress to tax Incomes derived from state and municipal liollds. Senator Borah pictured the mind of the public ns In a state of suspicion ;md discontent toward the govern ment, and declared that tho people could not much longer be withheld fpm radical action If taxation were continued In protection of wealth and In exemption of "Incomes which sus tain luxury and breed Idleness ani idiocy." The Senator said in sub stance; "The history of tho Income tax since 1S9I has not been one which any citi zen can recite with pride. For a hun dred yenrs a rule of construction as established by the man who helped to write the constitution had received the approval vof an undivided court time and time again. During this period there sat upon the bench of the Supreme Court some of the great est lawyers of that or any other per iod of this or any other country. Dur ing this period the wealth of this country had not become so domineer ing, so powerful, so determined to haw its own way. During this per iod, therefore, we had under the con stitution the right to impose a part of the tax upon wealth and a part upon consumption and we did so. 'In 1S!)J nnd 1895 these precedents were overturned, this constitution re ceived an Interpretation unknown to its makers. In the face of two most powerful dissenting opinions to which two other Judges assented, the liumiliat Ing nnd astounding doctrine was announced that the makers of the I'epublic Had hedged wealth about so that the taxing powers of tho gov ernment could not reach it e.ven in time of war; that the founders of n government based upon equality nnd Justice hnd made it Impossible to divide the burdens of government be tween consumption nnd a large class 'f gathered wenlth. Last session of this body we were called upon . to ratify and declare by exprt-i net our nssent to that interpretntl Under the rule of the majority we did so. We submitted this proposed amend rwnt to remedy this supposed hideous defect in the fundamental law. "Now the scheme and plan Is to defeat the amendment. Having ns a law making body solemnly accepted this construction of the constitution, thereby making It impracticable again ' appeal to the court, if this amend ment enn be defeated this, the gov ernment of the people, for the people end by the people, will stand alone r.mong all the civilized nations of the farth shorn of the power to tax that form of wealth best nble to bear the burdens of government. "That is the scheme and plan, and such men ns the great governor of New York is giving them great aid nnd comfort. Men say with great ferv.r of patrlotlsb, I am In favor 'f this power being given to the gov ernment to be used nt least In time of war nnd straightway proceed to help d. fent the amendment. If those who re the real enemies of this mea sure would come Into the open Its friends could deal with them far more "ncrenfifull. "Mr. Tresldent, no one ever saw this r"'n.try In Just the condition it Is to ,1:,y. Never since this government w launched has there been such n ""thus spirit among the great mass "t the people m,rh questioning. "'h persistent Inquiry.

An Interesting civil suit took place yesterdiy afternoon in Justice Curto's court when Joseph Grahek brought suit ngalnst Anton Rozman for $100 for alleged injuries received during a fracas in a Raymbaultown boarding house. The Jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant. The plaintiff was represented by Attorney A. Lucas and the defendant by Attorney Mac Cormack of the firm of Galbralth and MacCorir.ack. Grahek testified that a row occurred in the boarding house on a recent Sunday evening, in which he was struck In the face by Rozman, and hit on the head with a beer bottle nnd rendered unconscious by other persona In tho boarding house at the time. manner in which this has been man ipulated, it will go far toward excit ing to renewed force that feeling of wrath, of class hatred already too strong among us. It will do much to foster disrespect for and breed dis loyalty to the government. When those who nre 111 nble to meet the burdens of government see Its en ormous expenditures continue to In crease, larger armies and larger na vies, Increased burdens everywhere, nnd learn furthermore that all this must be met by a tax on consumption while Incomes which sustain luxury nnd breed Idleness and idiocy go un taxed they will have little mercy with you in the hour In which you must plead with them against radical changes in the government. I do not know how long we can deal with a patient people in this way. Hut I ven ture to prophecy not much longer. "I hope therefore the governors and legislatures of this country will be brave enough to do their duty In this matter. It Is time the people In this broad land bestir themselves upon this vital question before It Is too late to do so. It would be nothing less than ja catastrophe if this amendment should be defeated, if we are going nlso to be cut off from an appeal to the court. This is in every sense the people's fight." Senator Iiorah outlined h's conclu sions ns follows: 1 That the proposed amendment adds nothing to the taxing power of the national government. This power was complete, unfettered, plenary, be fore. It can be no more than that should the proposed amendment be adopted. 2 The proposed amendment does not deal or propose to deal with the question of power which is already complete but simply with the manner and methed of its exercise and use of that power. 3 No one has ever questioned the power of the national government to lay an Income tax for ns was said by Justice White, the question has al ways been "whether an admittedly unlimited power to tax has been used nccording to the Instruction ns to method." and It was to remedy the method alone that the amendment was submitted. 4The words "from whatever source ndd nothing to the force if the amendment. It would, in consti tutional parlance, be Just the same If It said "to lay and collect taxes on Incomes without apportionment" for who could then Fay that you would not have the right to lay. taxes on all Incomes? The present taxing power would not be a particle stronger If It said to lay and collect taxes upon all property from whatever source. STo construe the proposed nmendnicnt so ns to enable us to tax the Instrumentalities of the state would do violence to the rubs laid down by the Supreme Court for a hundred years. nn,h the whole In stitution from Its harmonious propor tion, nnd destroy the object nnd pur pose for which the !ile Instrument wna framed. To rttrue It to cover these In- . er..m a..ori'1-a within Ihe Juris diction and t-.ntrol of the s .vorHgnty laying the tax Is to construe It in nir 'monv ilh Ihe rrin.

Unless Governor Mann sees fit to interfere, Howard Little, "the sextuple murder er 'of Buchunun county, will die In the electric chair In the State peni tentiary here tomorrow morning. The condemned man has abandoned all hope of receiving ' a respite. Ho la chiefly concerned about the disposition of his body. He wants to be burled nt his old home in McDowell county, West Virginia, und. has received as surance that the small amount of money ho has left will be used to carry out' his wish. The crime for which Little is to pay the death penalty was probably the most fiendish in the criminal rec ords of Virginia. For the purpose of robbery he wiped out an entire family of six persons and then sought to con ceal the crime by burning the bodies of his victims. The scene of the tragedy was the little town of Hurley, in Buchanan county, the victims were "Aunt p.etty" Justls, nn aged woman who was gen erally supposed to keep a large sum of money about her, her son-in-law, George Meadows, his wife and their three children. On the morning of September 22 last neighbors discovered Meadows' mutilated body lying in the yard of his destroyed home. Two bullet holes through the body and n ghastly wound In the neck, which almost severed the head from the body, gave the dis coverers their first evidence of the extent of the tragedy. Bloodhounds were rushed to the scene and a posse started at once in pursuit of the murder. . Many signs pointed to Howard Little ns the mur derer nnd within a week after the tra gedy he was taken into custody. Little's wife confessed to having wash ed his bloody clothing the day after the murder. She stated, also, that he had left their home about dark the night of the4ragedy and return ed the next morning with his clothes all bloody and torn, and said that he would kill her if she told anything about his condition. It was ascertain ed that ho had borrowed n .32 caliber revolver n few days before the crime was committed, and returned it the following Wednesday with two chambers empty. The body of George Meadows was exhumed, and two bul lets taken from it were almost Iden tical In weight with the balls taken from the shells belonging to the wea pon Little had borrowed. Little's trial took place last No vember and resulted in a verdict of guilty and n sentence of death. Jan uary 7 was the date originally fixed for the execution, but Governor Swansnn granted a stay of thirty days In order that the case might be taken to the higher courts. In the meantime Little was taken to Roanoke for safe keep ing ,ns threats of lynching were made In the county where the trial had taken place. Two weeks ago Little's last hope of escaping the electric chair was destroyed when the State supreme court of appeals refused to grant a writ of error In his case. RIVER AND HARBOR BILL. Rep. Rodenberg of Illinois Believe Senate Will Pass Measure. Washington. Feb. 10. "It would be the worst kind of economy not to pass a river und harbor bill nt this session of congress and to furnish the neces sary funds to carry on the improve ments already begun on the rivers and harbors of the country," said Repre sentative William E. Rodenberg of -the 22nd Illinois district und a "member of the rivers and harbors committee. "There are abundant examples of the un-buslncsslike method of the gov ernment In Its treatment of the water ways of the country and I believe the time has come when we should go about Improving our grent natural highways with the same discriminating care as we put Into our private business." "The most conspicuous example that I now recall of false economy on the part of the government Is the manner In which the development of the Mis souri river has been carried on. We have spent several millions on that river but without any well defined pol Icy nnd as n result we have little or nothing to show for the money spent on that great tributary of the Mis sissippi. "Now that the committee on rivers and harbors has practically decided on a bill that, while it will be comprehen. slve in character will not carry any where near the amount some of the more enthusiastic friend of water ways have anticipated, the work on the Missouri will have to be practical ly done nil over again. "The rumors current that the senate will not pass a river and harbor t.i:i at the present session I do not believe nre founded upon facta. My Informa tion la Just the reverse. I believe that when the bill g'e to the senate public sentiment will bs so strong In f ior of n waterways measuro that the upH-r branch cannot Ignore the demand." W. A. Cbll.ls. superintendent of the ItecU and Torch I.ake Mill, left yes terd.ijr afternoon for Chicago.
