Protost of Power Company Falls and

tion About Dam Site.
Washington, Juno 19. Secretary
Ballinger will not reconsider his recent
decision dismissing the protest of the
Deschutes Power & Development com
pany against granting right of way up
the Deschutes river to the proposed
railroad. Ho today denied a motion
for review of that decision, which mo
tion was filed by the above-named com'
nanv. Simultaneously he approved all
remaining maps of location filed by E.
H. Harriman's Deschutes Railroad
company, as well as maps of the Ore
gon Trunk line, which also Bought a
right of way through tho Deschutes
This actionremoves the last govern'
ment obstacle in the way of construc
tion of theBe two roads, it having pre
viously been agreed by both companies
to use the samo right of way through
narrow portions of the canyon which
will not accomodate two tracks.
The secretary's action today put an
end to all protest against railroad
right of way by private parties, and,
if they hereafter seek to interfere with
railroad construction, they must do so
through the Oregon courts.
The right of way contemplates con
struction at water grade. Tho railway
company agreed toelevate tho tracks
if in the future it becomes necessary
to do so to avoid interference with any
irrigation work the government may
build along this river. Tho railroad
company has accepted thiB stipulation,
As interpreted by many porsons who
come forward witn objections to tho
scheme, tho plan is to tax only such
portion of the earnings as remain after
all expenses of operation, maintenance
and fixed charges, including interest
on bonds, havo been deducted from the
gross earnings of the corporation, The
tax, however, is to bo upon tho net
earnings before the interest on bonds
has been deducted. Otherwise, it is
pointed out, tho tax would be reduced
substantially to a dividond basis, which
was what tho president himself did
havo in mind originally.
First, a dividend tax, then a tax on
earnings available for dividends, and
finally a tax on all earnings in excess
of expenses of maintenance and opera
tion, were the successive steps in tho
evolution of tho idea which Attorney
General Wickersham, following a long
conference with the president this af
ternoon, is putting into form for Bub-
The bonded debt side of tho matter
was fully gono into by tho president
and his advisers.
Tho $25,000,000 estimate of rovenuo
to bo yielded by the tax was based on
figures supplied to the secretary by an
expert at the president's request, but
they were based on the original propo
sition of a dividond tax. Tho yield
from the tax as now proposed will
double that at least and perhaps go
considerably beyond. These facts were
obtained today from a member of tho
administration who has taken a lead
ing part in working out details of the

The ruling was made in the case of

rate question was rendered, but the
railway was ordered to file a schedule
of its through freight tariffs for ap

'Tokio Papers Make Most of Strike
Difficulty In Hawaii.
Tokio, June 19. Special dispatches
from San Francisco to Japanese news
papers are so worded as 'to indicate
that conditions obtaining in the Hawai
ian islands, growing out of the Japan
ese sugar plantation strike, aro ex
tremely serious. They declare that the
Japanese on the mainland, as well as
those in the islands, are deeply incens
ed over the treatment accorded their
countrymen by the Hawaiian planters,
and they say that relations are strained
almost to the breaking point.
The publication of these inflamma
tory dispatches is again arousing an
anti-American feeling among the Jap
anese lower classes. The sensational
ist papers are seizing the opportunity
of commenting editorially in a manner
calculated to increase this feeling of

Washington, Juno 17. President
Taf t yesterday sent tho following mca
sage to congress :
"To tho Senato and House of Ropr
senatives It is tho constitutional duty
of tho president, from timo to time, to
present to tho consideration of congross
such measures as ho shall judgo neccs
sary and expedient.
"In my inaugural address, immcdi
atoly preceding this present extraord
nary session of congress, I invited at
tention to tho necessity for a revision
of the tariff at this session, and stated
tho principles upon which I thought
tho revision Bhould bo effected. I re
ferred to tho then rapidly increasing
deficit, and pointed out tho obligation
on tho part of tho framers of tho tariff
bill to arrange duties so as tosecuro an
adequato income, and suggested that if
it -was not possible to do so by import
duties, new kinds of taxation must be
Adopted, and among them I recommend
ed a graduated inheritance tax as cor
rect in principle and as certain and
easy of collection.
"Tho house of representatives ' has
adopted tbo suggestion and has pro
vided in tho bill it passed for tho co
lection of such a tax. In the senate,
the action of its finnnce committee
and tho course of the debate indicate
that it may not agree to thiB provision,
and it is now proposed to mako up tho
deficit by tbo imposition of a genera!
income tax, in form and substanco al
most exactly the same character as that
which, in the case of Pollock vs. Farm
era Loan & Trust company, 167 U. S
429, was held by the Supreme court to
be a direct tax, and therefore, not with
in tho power of the Federal govern
ment to impose unless apportioned
among tho states according to popu
"This new proposal, which I did not
discuss in my inaugural address or my
message at the opening of the present
session, makes it appropriate for me to
submit to congress certain additional
"The decision of the Supremo, court
in the income tax cases deprives the
national government of a power which.
by reason of previous decisions of the
court, it was generaly supposed the
government had. It is undoubtccdly a
power the national government ought
to have. It might be indispensable to
the nation's life in great crises.
"Although I have not considered
constitutional amendment as necessary
to the exercise of certain phases of
this power, a mature consideration has"
satisfied mo that an amendment is the
only proper course for its establishment
to its full extent. I therefore recom
mend to the congress that both houses,
by a two-tnirds voto, snail propose an
amendment to the constitution confer
ring the power to levy an income tax
upon the national government without
apportionment among the states in pro
portion to population.
"This course is much to bo preferred
to the ono proposed, of re-enacting
law once judicially declared to be un
constitutional. For congress to ossumo
that the court will reverso itself and to
enact legislation on such assumption
will not-strengthen popular confidence
in the stability of the judicial construc
tion of the constitution. It is much
Wiser policy to accept the constitution
and remedy the defect in due and regu
"Again, it is clear that by the enact
ment of the proposed law, tho congress
will not be bringing money into the
treasury to meet the present deficiency,
but by putting on the statuto book
law already there and never repealed
will Bimply be suggesting to tbo execu
tivo officers of the government their
possible duty to invoke litigation.
"If the court should maintain its
formsr view, no tax would be collected
at all. If it should ultimately reverse
itself, still no taxes would havo been
collected until after protracted delay.
"It is said the difficulty and delay
in securing the approval of throe-fourths
of tho states will destroy all chance of
adopting the amendment. Of course,
