Snpreme Court Decision on

FIVE OF THE JUSTICES OPPOSED IT

Beer and Tea.
Washington, May 20. The supreme
court today declared the income tax law
unconstitutional in to to. ' The Justices
gainst the law were Chief Justice Fuller
and Justices Gray, Field, Brewer and
Sbiras. For the law were Justices Har
lan, White, Brown and Jackson.
Jk Tax ob Beer and Tea Is Contemplated.
Washington, May 20. In view of the
certain loss of the $30,000,000 revenue
expected from the income tax and the
admitted certainty of a deficit at the
close of the fiscal year, treasury officials
ate beginning to turn their attention to
the question of providing new sources of
revenue. When questioned on the sub
ject the commissioner of internal rev
enue, J. S. Miller, said the repeated sug
gestions for - an increased tax on beer
would undoubtedly be called to the at
tention of congress.
"We must have more revenue," said
the commisssioner, "and the easiest,
cheapest and least burdensome internal
tax would be on malt liquors. We could
increase the tax to any amount without
the expenditure of another dollar, or the
employment of a single extra clerk. It
is just as easy to collect $2 a barrel as
half that amount, and the difference
would not affect the price of beer to the
This statement indicates that this in
creased beer tax will become an ad
ministration measure as soon as con
gress meets. The production of beer for
the fiscal year, ending June 80,1894, was
33,334,783 barrels, bo that an addition of
$1 a barrel would bring in as much as
was anticipated for this year from the
income tax and quite as much will be
received as duty unless prices improve.
Some of the treasury experts are figur
ing on a revenue duty on tea, and this
will have the support of the heavy im
porters, who wish to shut out the cheap
grades. Any attempt to raise more rev
enue from beer will bring to Washington
a strong lobby Representing the brewing
interests. To avoid clashing with demo
cratic free-trade theories, an effort will
be made to secure the imposition of rev
one while the expected fight on the
'beer tax ie in progress.
A Brutal Murder Committed. Near
Grant's Pass, May 20. Charles
Fiester, aged sixty-three, deliberately

day, in the presence of their three young
children, the eldest of whom was ten
The crime grew out of family troubles
of long standing. The pair bad been
separated for some time, but Fiester
came to this city and persuaded his wife
to go to Merlin, where he was logging,
and keep bouse for him. She consented
to go for a week, and they started to
Merlin, nine miles distant, with the
three small children. After going about
five miles they quarreled bitterly, and
Mrs. Fiester started back tor Grant's
Pass, but was soon caught by Fiester
and dragged to a hole of water, about
three feet deep, near the track, and held
under the water until dead. - After the
woman was dead the man' claims to

Naw Tore, May 20. A special to the
Herald from Hoguin, Cuba, says:
General Gomes, of the Cuban armies,
who passed near this place escorted by a
cavalry force of 1200 men on his way to
Puerto Principe, has sent a letter to the
Herald, of which the following is a trans
"Magnaminity will mark this war as
well as untiring energy. Among the
veterans of the previous struggle flock
ing to my standard to guide the rank
and file of the younger generation of
patriots of liberty to sure victory, there
is noticeable a spirit ot determination
and an .energy far superior to anything
displayed during our last war, and en
tirely free from certain objectionable
features which then tended to localize
our movements and prevent rapidity of
operations. The outlook for the success
of the present revolution before many
years is so bright that there can be no
doubt that the republic of Cuba will be
one of the new states soon to o:cupy its
place among the free governments of the
world. Martinez Campos has by force
of circumstances been compelled to ac
cept the only plan of campaign left to
him to enable Spam temporarily to
maintain possession of the larger towns
and principal coast ports, and these will
soon slip from her sickly grasp. Cam
pos will require a double army, one of
occupation and one of operation. For
the first, he must have, as any military
expert who knows the strength of the
revolution and who possesses a knowl
edge of geography of the island may see
at a glance, at least 30,000 men in" order
to occupy and "defend the cities, towns
and strategic outposts already threat-;
ened by the revolution. For his army
of operation as many more troops will be
required to enable him to face our forces
in the field.
"To maintain the war until spring.
from physical and financial exhaustion
she will be compelled, as she was in
Santa Domingo, to give up the fight.
Free Cuba will not need ' such a large
military force, for, with our superior
knowledge of the island we can with one
and the same army of much less strength
numerically, assisted as we are by these
advantages and by all the natural re
sources of the island, compel the Span
ish army of occupation to keep strictly
with the army of operation, harassing
the enemy upon every band by our al
ternate movements of sudden dissemin
ation and quick concentration."
For a Provisional Government.
New York, May 20. Advices at the
Cuban revolutionary headquarters in
New York state that Gomez has in
structed all insurgent bands of 100 men
and upwards to send a delegate to the
general assembly which will meet at
Yara in June to put into execution the
declaration of independence and form a
definite provisional government.
The Cuban chiefs have' great hopes
that the United 8tates government will
recognize them as belligerents at the
next session of congress at Washington

men bound and gagged Mrs. George
Smith, last night, tied ber to a bedpost,
locked her three children in a closet, and

of money. ' From the description given

A Comma Election.
Niw York, May 20. According to A,
H. Deviras, a Peruvian who has recently
arrived in New York, the coming elec
tion in Peru is almost certain to result
in the triumph of the Catholic party and
the elevation of Pierola to the presidency.
"So general is the belief that he will
be elected," said Mr. Deviras, "that
Gonzales Perada, leader of the liberal
party, wil not even present himself as a
candidate. Perada is ,the open ad
versarv of the Catholic party which has
long been in power."
