ing of the heavy rains and snow, and the
consequent happiness of the farmers and
business men. Hongs of praise are espe

the rain has been the most abundant,

C11KI8TUSIA, April 8. Estimates to

They i'ive a fresh impetus to tlm wild
rumors of lmj endin); wrt between Nor
way and Sweden. Tbe estimates fur
exceed any previous sums required. The
sum of 4,(KH),000 crowns is to be devoted
to the construction of ironclads. In ad
dition large credits will be asked for to
purchase munitions of war and for the
completion of forts in Tonsburg harbor.
Bkuun, April 7. Tbe maturing con
flict between Norway and Sweden hag
given rise to strange reports in Berlin.
Since Tuesday it has been a common
statement that should the two kingdoms
resort to force Emperor William would
take up aruiB rather athan permit the
threatened interference of Russia.

Oscar as much. Although oflicial circles
discredit this report, the mere thought of
it has sufllceu to fasten general attention
upon the swift course of events in the
Yesterday's dispatch from Stockholm,
while not ?onllrming the predictions of
war describes the situation as very seri
ous. With alarmist rumors of the em
peror's promise to Oscar, has come a
butch of gossip as to tbe relations be
tween St. Tetcrrfburg and lierlin. The
two courts are mppoHed to be less
friendly now than a few weeks ago.
The statements that the czar and czarina
will not come to Berlin this year la re
garded as additional proof of the es
trangement, although as the czarina's
accouchement is expected to take place
early In September, it is difficult to see
how the visit could be made, even if
Russia and Germany were on the verge
of an alliance. '

New York, April 8 A private letter
from Indon to a celebrated actress
here describes the mode of life of Anna
Gould and her husband, Count Castel-
1 lane. The countess seems devoted to
her husband and intensely jealous of
him, not allowing hira out of her sight,
and insisting on his constant attendance.
After all the talk about the f. 3,000,0(10
settlement from the Gould estate, it is
now said that Caitellune only received
$25,0iK), given to him by George Gould,
to prepare proierly for the wedding and
purchase necessary presents. George
was anxious to make a suitable settle
ment and the matter was discussed at a
gathering of the Gould children. The
only member of the family who vehem
ently opposed it was Anna, who said she
wanted to believe the count married her
for loye, not money. The next day
George told the count of this decision.
The count was chagrined and said he
would consult hi father. Marquis
Castellane was furious, and urged his
son to break off the match, return to
Paris and marrr Mile DeMonbazon, to
whom he formerly paid his addresses.
The count said matters had gone too tar
and he would be made rediculous if he
broke off the match at the last moment
because he did not receive a large set
tlement, though he said he bad expected
a large dot.

Denver, April 7. Not a train has ar
rived in Denver from the east today, and
all roads traversing the Eastern portion
of the state are still impassable as the
result of the great storm of Friday. To
day has been very warm and clear, melt
ing all the siow remaining on the ground.
The delay of trains now comes from sand
on the tracks. Every cut is filled,
sometimes to the deptb of from four to
eight feet. Shovels and rotary plows
are the only implements that can make
any impression on the obstruction. A
dispatch from Falcon reports that the
rotary plow, in clearing up a cut near
there, unearthed the body of a man
buried on the sand on the track, prob
ably having frozen to death. He has
been identified as a herder from Mc
Lean's sheep ranch. The loss of live
stock will be great, but no estimate can
be u.ade today.

Juillce Field la Very Severe In Ills
Arraignment of Its L'nconntN
WasuiMOTox, April 8. The anxiously
awaited decision of the United States
supreme court on the income tax case
was rendered today by Chief Justice
Fuller. The court knocked out the law
as far as it tax?s incomes derived from
rents and also from state, county and
municipal bonds. By a tie vote of the
court the law was sustained in other re
spects. Justices Field, Harlan and White dis
sented from Justice Miller. Justice
Field said: "I am of the opinion that the
w hole law of 1894 is null and void,"
Justice White favored upholding the
Justice Field, the oldest member of
the court, in the dissenting opinion,
"The income tax law under considera
tion is marked by discriminating features
which eflect the whole law. It discrim
inates between those who receive an in
come of $4000 and those who do not. It
thus vitiates, in my judgment, by this
arbitrary discrimination, the whole leg
islation. Whenever a distinction is made
in the burden a law imposes er the bene
fits it confers on any person by any
reason of their birth, wealth or religion,
it is class legislation and leads ineviiable
to oppression and abuse, and to a gen
eral nnrest and disturbance in society.
It is hoped and' believed that the great
amendments to the constitution which
followed the late civil war had rendered
such legislation impossible for future
time. But the objectionable legislation
re-appears in the act under consideration.
It is the same in essential character
as the English statute of 1C81 which
taxed Protestants at a certain rate,
Catholics as a class at double the rate
of Protestants, and Jews at another and
Tbe effect of all the opinions delivered
is to show that the court was unanimous
in the opinion that the law Is unconsti
tutional as to municipal and state bonds,
that Chief Justice Fuller, Justices Field,
Gray, Brewer, Brown and Sluras hold it
to be invalid on incomes derived from
rents, and Justices Harlan and White
dissented from this opinion as to rents.
It is impossible to state the exact divis
ion as to the validity of other parts of
tbe law fuitber than was disclosed by
the proceedings. v
It appears quite clear that Chief Jus
tice Fuller and Justices Harlan and
White voted to sustain the other parts
of the law and the best op'nion obtain
able is that Justice Brown stood witb
then in this question, which would leave
Justice Field, Gray, Prewer and Sluras
as the opponents of the law as a whole.

and to use his own words: "It cured
me rigtit up." He also says : "A neigh
bor and his wife were both sick in bed
with rheumatism. Their boy was over
