The original act was held to violate state rights in a five to four opinion delivered by Justice McReynolds. Present members of the court who voted with him were Justices Butler and Roberts. Those dissenting were Chief Justice Hughes and Justices Cardozo, Brandcis and Stone. In 'the revised measure, congress specified that it should not be construed, to ' limit or impair" the power of any state to control any'municipality or political subdivision "in the exercise of its political or governmental powers.' The southern California federal district court ruled, however, in the Lindsay-Strathmore case, that an irrigation district "Is one of the instrumentalities of the state which fall under the interdict" of the previous supreme court ruling.

He then told congress: "I recommend, therefore, that the congress enact legislation ending 'tax exemption on government salaries of all kinds, conferring powers on the states with respect to federal salaries and powers to the federal government with respect to state and local government salaries." The ending of tax exemption, he said, "be it of government securities or of government salaries, is a matter, not of politics, but of principle." On the question of taxing income from securities, Mr. Roosevelt said under the present system "men with great means best able to assume business risks have been encouraged to lock up substantial portions .of their funds in tax exempt securities." "Men with little means who should be encouraged to hold the secure obligations of the' federal and state governments have been obliged to pay a relatively higher rate for those securities than the very rich because the tax immunity is of less value to them han to those whose incomes f,all in the higher brackets," he addyxi. Another Mewace Coming The communication on taxes was the first of two important messages which Mr. Roosevelt has proposed to send to congress this week, The other, to be sent before he leaves Friday on a fishing trip, will deal, he. said, with revision of anti-trust laws. -Some congressional leaders, however, have expressed the opinion this message will ask only a study looking toward action at the next session. Besides the request for action on taxes, and what action may be asked on the anti-trust laws, the chief threat to adjournment plans is the revised wage and hour bill, now before the house rules committee.
