SUPREME COURT DISSENTED.
The Inoomo Tax Law Is ReaMy Un
coneibituUomlal. WaaWngiton, April 8. Clhilef Justice
Fuller handed down iflhe decision in
the Income tax case today. It finds
it'hlalt tthe tax on remits or landed In
vestment Is ddreot toJoaJUon, and un
constitutional The court next decided
'the tax unconstitutional so far as it
related to Incomes from atalte, county
or mujtleipal bonds. It next ruled tha
faot the law, (pronounced unconstitu
tlonail In tlhose two particulars, did
not InvBiliilaite the law as a whole. It
is announced thiait in Hhis latter con
clusion tlhe court was equally divided
and therefore rendered no opinion, a
lower count ihavlng ruled in favor of
the law by a dUvided count, the law
would stand except as to remits, and
state, county, and municipal bonis, and
on tlhese two points It was directed
that -the Judgment -be now reversed.
Justice Filed road foils dissenting
opinion. He eald: "I am of tlhe opin
ion that the Whole law of 1894 is null
and void." He was followed by Justice
White In a second dissenting opinion.
Justice Held laid great stress upon
the foot 'that Ithe tow does not exempt
Judges of tlhe UnJtJd States counts from
payment of tax." Justice White's dis
sent was largely extemtporameous and
very Jong. Apparently lie favored up
holding tlhe whole law. Justice Har
lan followed Justice White In a dis
senting opinion, and the cose closed.
Notihin-g was cold as to now any of

Justice Field, the oldest member of
the court. In 'his dUssewtlng opinion,
The income itax law under consider

It discriminates between tho&e who
reoelre an income of $4,000 and those
Who do mot. It thus vitiates, lri my
Judgment, by this arbitrary dlsttilmlna
tlon, the whole legtlstaitian. Whenever
distinction is made in the -burdens a
law imposes or the 'benefits It confers
on any citizen by any reason of their
birth, wealth, or .religion, It - is class
legislation and leads Inevita'bly to op

tlal character as the English statute
of 1081 which taxed the Protestants at
a certain rate, Catholics as a doss at
double the rate of Protestants, and
Jews alt another and separate rate.
Justice Fidld concludes: "If -the pro.
visions of the constitution can be set
aside by an act of oongress, where is
the course of usurpation to end? The
present assault upon capital Is but the
beginning. It will be the steppitngsjtone

Washington, April 8. The treasury

supreme court's decision on the Income
tax case, and while admitting thidit
they Wave no rellaMe data upon which
to farm an accurate estimate, they ex
press the belief that the net result of
the dedi&on will be a loss of at loiurt
50 per cent of the receipt from the In
comes. In mwrt cities the loss 111 be
far greater than this, noitaMy the city
of Washlnjston, where the toes Is ex
pected to reach 75 per cent. Wash
ington, however, is exceptionally a
renting city. The prmpostion of the
rented houses In other cities of the
country Is also very large. In 1890 the
rented houses in New York City were
nearly 94 per cent of the whole.

It will be known as the Oregon Central

Is naturally pleased thloit the new sur
vey has been ordered at Yaquilnia, and
oonfldence that tlhls harbor will

ciation for furtiher improvement.
As 'to the new company's plans, Mr.
Hammond said: "Our actions are han
dicapped by the mjipeol pending In the
supreme court, but If that is decided
saUsfaatorlly, we will flrs-t put the
road In flrat class condition, then will
come the question of extemUone. If

build brantftics to both Eugene and Sa

will build thiait also as fast as business
will Justify and exipeat eventually to
connect with one of the through east
ern lines. I was told In Portland that
the eastern end of the road did not
amount to much, Wit instead of this
being the case, I -oam .truthfully say
that no railroad of the same, length In
the United States or elsewhere offers
so much tonmagie in sight as does that
part of the Oregon Pacific 'between Al
bony and Its present terminus. . There

have abundant capital to carry but
our plans, but cannot go on wi'tli them
except In a limited way until the ap

build some each year until we finally
carry out our plan for eastern connec
