J. Trial; Mrs. Gibson Eager to Tell Story LARGE CROWD ON HAND FOR TRIAL TODAY By PAUL R. MALLON, United Press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Nov.

6. President Coolidge's proposal for a 10 to 12 per cent, retroactive reduction on income taxes encountered today opposition of Democrats who made known their intention of fighting at the coming session of Congress for a reduction more than twice as great. Senator Claude Swanson, Democrat, Virginia, outlined the Democratic plans in a statement to the United Press to the effect that the steadily accumulating treasury surplus warrants an immediate revision of the tax system so that in the future the government will collect no more than it needs, and that the present surplus warrants a 25 per cent, reduction from top to bottom. TO RECOMMEND 10 TO 12 P. C.

CUT TO CONGRESS. "The reduction suggested by Mr. Coolidge is not one half what It should be," Swanson said, "We know what our debts we know what our expenses are and it is time that we revise the tax system so that the government collects only what It needs for its obligations. "We need a reduction, vigorous strong and full, so that the people's money will not in the future accumulate in the treasury department in the form of surplus. "The President has apparently been awakened by the election to the fact that the people will not countenance tampering with the governments revenues for political effect.

We should have a full tax reduction now." Mr. Coolidge's statement through his White House spokesman late yesterday indicated he would recommend a reduction of from 10 to 12 pr cent, In a message to Congress when it reconvenes December 6. The plan would affect only income and corporations taxes not the miscellaneous and so-called nuisance taxes. He made it clear that his proposal was only a temporary measure, warranted by the estimate that the treasury surplus will reach $250,000,000 this fiscal year. The cut would be virtually a rebate of taxes listed with the government last March.

Possibility that weeks may elapse before Mrs. Jane Gibson, leading witness of the state in the Hall-Mills prosecution, is able to testify, was discussed today as the trial of Mrs. Frances Stevens Hall and her brothers Willie and Henry Stevens, went into its fourth day. The woman that the state is relying upon to testify as an eye-witness to the murder four years ago of the Rev. Dr.

Edward Wheeler Hall and Mrs. Eleanor R. Mills, is suffering from an acute kidney infection, which may cause a delay in the presentation in the case. Dr. A.

A. Lawton, her local physician, said today that "Mrs. Gibson's recovery is a matter of weeks, not days," and this view met the approval of Dr. E. L.

Keyes, New York specialist in kidney diseases, who was called in as a consultant. WON'T TAKE COURT TO HER BEDSIDE. The court already has refused once to allow the trial to move to the bedside of Mrs. Gibson in the Somerset Hospital, where she was taken Wednesday and Dr. Keyes said he would be opposed to such a course.

The 'Tig Woman," as Mrs. Gibson is known, because of her pig farm near the scene of the double murder, waa said today by special prosecutor Alexander Simpson to be "eager to testify." When told of Dr. Lawton statement, Simpson said: "Well, we have lots of other witnesses we ran introduce first" It is known, however, that the state places considerable credence in the oft-told story of Mrs. Gibson that she saw Mrs. Hall.

Willie Stevens and Henry Carpenter, a cousin, at the murder scene the Phillips farm near New Brunswickon the night of September 14. 1932, Dr. Lawton made it plain that the pyelo-nephritis, from which Mrs. Gibson is suffering is unlikely to become critical, but that recovery will be slow. This overnight development took precedence over the news gleaned from the defense that James Mills, husband of the slain woman, might be called as a witness for Mrs.

Hall and her brothers. FORECAST FOR THE COMING WEEK Mrs. Hall's Accuser. WASHINGTON, Nov. 6.

The tactics of the State, if Simpson la unable to call Mrs.

Coolidge and Secretary of the Treasury Mellon had Insisted that it would be unwise to permit any tax reduction for at least a year yet. Mellon made no public comment on the President's new proposal, and it Is not known whether he sanctioned the move. In the past, however, Presidents always followed the advice of their secretaries upon such special department problems. The President's new program is regarded by politicians here as a master political stroke. Coming three days after the election in which Democrats strengthened their representation in both Houses of Congress, the program Is held to appropriate much of the Democratic tax reduction thunder.
