Wanted to Wed Marie Wainwright, the Actress — Defalcation May Reach 5700,000. TACOMA, Wash., April 25.— The experts who are examining the books of Paul Schulze, late general laud agent of the Northern Pacific railway, have found that his defalcation amounts to over ST)00,000, instead of a few thousand, as was at first sup-" posed. The shortage, it is said, may even reach tho enormous sum of £700,000. The embezzler, who was one of tho best known railroad me 1 )) in tho country and an influential resident of Tacoma, committed suicide a few days ago. Dlsnppolnted In Lovn. Romiince and pathos are strangely blended in this tragedy, which has caused such a stir throughout the west. Disappointment in love is supposed to have had quite as much to do with Schulze's suicide as fear of dis- gfaee. On his person was found a farewell letter to Mario Waiuright, the distinguished actress. It is stated that Mr. Schulze had cared for Miss Wainright for a IODR- time and had paid her much attention. The seemingly insuperable obstacles that prevented Mr. Schulze's marriage with Miss Wainwright are alleged to have been his chief reasons for self-destruction. It will bo recalled that when, two years ago, she announced her intention of retiring from the stage, Miss Wainwright wa^ reported to be engaged to marry a prominent man in the west. The disastrous termination of ber divorce proceedings put an end to this plan and she continued in her theatrical career. A IVrll-Know.i .linn. Mr. Schulze was one of tho best- known mcu in the northwest. He was vice director of the Tacoma Smelting and Refining company, aud was formerly president of the Union club, Tacoma's largest social organization. He was also a director of the Traders' bank at tho time o£ his death. He entered the Northern Pacific service under Henry Villard, and nearly ten years ago was made land agent at the western end of tho road. During the last twelve months his management has not been approved by the Northern 'Pacific officials and it was frequently rumored that he had been removed. Two weeks ago he announced that he had resigned at the request of I/and Commissioner Phipps Hu did not seem to feel bad about the matter then, but it is certain he fel' keenly tho disgrace of being compelled to leave while under fire. JntoritHtrd In Many Kutorprlitov. Mr. Schulze was president of the Yakima Investment company aud owner of the great Sunnyside canal in Yakima county, with assets of over S2,- 000,000. He was also president of the Tacoma Railway and Motor company and owner of two-thirds of the street railway system in Tacoma. Both companies are now in the hands of celvers, and he was one of the receivers of the former company. Character ot tliu Dead Man. During the five years from JS82, when be was appointed general laud agent for the Northern Pacific, to 1SS7, when he came to Tacoma. Mr. Schulzo was very prominent in the railroad and business circles of Portland. He resided at Fifteenth and Couch streets, where lie kept open house to all railroad magnates and persons of distinction who visited the city, maintaining his establishment in a stj'le of the most lavish expenditure. Ho gave frequent dinner parties, at which all the rarest and most expensive delicacies the market could afford were served in profusion. His table linen, glass, silver and china were the richest and most elegant to be produced, and his cellars were stocked with the finest kinds of wines. He was gnnial and popular with his friends and equals. He was one of the most influential men on the Pacific coast, and his suicide caused widespread astonishment and grief. FIERCE FOREST FIRES. April 25. — A special from Chippewa Falls to the Daily News says; Word was received here Thursday that forest fires are again raging in the vicinity of Phillips and it no\v looks as if that devastated region will suffer a second catastrophe. The woods near Prentice are ablaze and the homesteaders and farmers are rushing into .the city for safety. DEFINES THEM. Taxes, Direct and Indirect, as Considered by Chief Justice Fuller. INCOME Snpromo TAX DECISION. Court Will Kcopon the Entire Cine ou Boh«>nrlnjr. WASHINGTON, April 25.—If Justice Jackson, of the supreme court, is in Washington May G the court will vacate the income tax decision handed down April S and open the case for reargument. Chief Justice •Fuller and the associate justices are very much, surprised to discover that there is a misapprehension iu the minds of the public regarding the effect of the announcement made by the chief justice at the opening of the court on the subject of the income tax. This was generally understood to mean that the court would merely listen to arguments on. the motion for a rehearing of the case and that a- reargument would be either denied or sot for some future day in May or at the October term. Chief Justice Fuller aud the court meant, however, to say nothing of the sort He intended to announce that on May 0, if Justice Jackson is then on the bench, as it now is announced he will be, the court will return to the argument of the whole income tax cases as if they had not been passed upon at all. Holds That Taxes on Income Derived from Land and from Municipal Bonds Unconstitutional. STOPPED HeuTjr THE TRAINS. Valuable Timber a&£ Other Property 11«- •trorcd In New Jerney. LAKE WOOD, 2S T . J., April 25.—The forest fire which originated from the burning of tallow in a hotel in. the cedars about 1 mile from this place continued to burn fiercely Thursday forenoon. It is estimated that S75,- 000 wortn of property has already been destroyed. Most of the damage has been to standing timber, about 2,000 acres having been, already burned over. Tho residents of the surrounding neighborhood have been fighting the flames since Wednesday. The wind shifting, it is now hoped to save much valuable property. VINELAND, 2T-, J., April 25.—The forest fires which have been burning some distance from this place for three days are getting dangerously close to Vineland. The heat of the flames can be plainly felt here and the residents of the outskirts of the town are in great fear that the fire . will reach their property unless the wind shilts. Unlit tor m in Texan Kills Cnttle und I>oo8 Other Unmitjfc. SAN ANTONIO, Tex., April 25.— The terrific hailstorm which swept through Wilson, Bexsar and Medina counties Wednesday night did much damage. The hailstones were the size of goose eggs and covered the ground to the depth of 3 feet. Thu towns of Lytle, Benton City and Castroville were greatly devastated by the storm, the houses being riddled like a sieve by the hailstones. The damage to residences and business houses in Lytle alone amounts to about 550,000. Hundreds of head of live stock were killed. The track of the International & Great Northern railroad was bloeaded with hail stones, and they had to be removed before trains could proceed. Tho cotton arid corn crops iu the path of tho storm were com- "plctelv destroyed. Two hundred thousand dollars, it is estimated, will hardly cover the amount of damage to crops and other property. A subscription was started here ^Thursday for the relief of sufferers from the storm. ______ • _ Monument to Fhuicls Score JB.OJ.

PEORIA, 111., April ,25.— The oddfel- lows-celebrated their seventy-sixth anniversary in this city Thursday". WASHINGTON, April 25.—The text of the opinion of Chief Justice Fuller in the income tax case which was delivered April S was made public Wednesday. The opinion is preceded by an. elaborate review of the history of the cnse. The opinion proper is introduced with the statement that "the constitution provides that representatives and direct taxes shall bo apportioned among the several states according to numbers and that no direct tax shall be laid except according to the enumeration provided, a.nd also that all duties, imposts aud excises shall be uniform throughout the United States.' 1 Direct and Indirect Tnnss. Thus in the matter of taxation the constitution recogui/.es the two great classes of direct and indirect taxation, and lays down two rules by which 'their imposition must be governed, namely, the rules of apportionment us to direct taxes and tho rule of uniformity as to duties, imposts and excises. By far the greater part of the opinion is devoted to the consideration of the question whether a tax on rents is a direct tax within the meaning of the constitution. The opinion hero reviews numerous decisions under the act of 18(51, including the Springer case, which was largely relic" 1 upon by counsel for the government in the present case to sustain their contention. Chief Justice Fuller says: . * "It Is conceded in all those cases, from that of Hilton to tbut of Springer, that taxes on liinil lire direct taxes und In none of them is It determined tbat tuxes on rents or Income derived from land are aoc taxes on land." Can't TKJC liinomoM from T.und, Summing up, the chief justice says, among other tilings: "Tho rCQulromont of iho constitution is tuat no direct tax slinH bo laid otherwise than by apportionment. Tho prohibition isnotiiKaIast_di- ract taxes on lund, from which tho implication is sought to bo drawn that indirect taxes on land would be couNtitutlocai.but it Is uKalnstall direct taxes, and it In admitted that a tax on real estate Is a direct tax. Unless, therefore. :i tax upon rents or Incomes issuing out of lands IK Intrinsically so diCerent from a tax on the land Itself that It belongs to a wholly different class or taxes, such taxes must bo regarded as falling within the samo category as a tax on real estate eo nomino. Tho name of tho tax is unimportant. The real question is, is there any basis upon -which to rest tho contention that roal estate bclonus to one of the two groat classes of taies and the rent, or income, which is tho Incident of its ownership, belongs to the other? We are unable to perceive any ground for tho alleced distinction. An annual tax upon the annual valuo or annual uso of real estate appears to us the same in substance os an annual tax on real estate, which would bo paid out of tho rent or income. This law taxes tho income roctfivod from laud and the growth or produce of tho lund. "Nothing can bo clearer than that what tho constitution intended to guard against wus tho exercise by the general government of tho power of directly taxing persons and property within any stato through a majority made up from the other states. "We are of opinion that tho low in question, so far as It levies a tax on the rents or Income of real estate, Is in violation ot tho constltu- tlon'and is invalid." Tux on Municipal Bond*. Comparatively brief space is devoted to the question of a tax on the-income derived, from municipal bonds. The opinion says. "Tbo tax on government stock Is thought by this court to bo a tax on tho contract, a tux on the power to borrow money, on the credit of the anitod States, and consequently to bo repugnant to the constitution, "Applying this language to these municipal securities, It is obvious that taxation on the Interest therefrom would operate on the power to borrow before It is exercised and would have a sensible influence on tho contract, and that tho tax in question is a toi on tho power of tho states and their instrumentalities to borrow money, and consequently repugnant to the constitution. Mr*, i'arnell Xo Better. BOKDENTOWN', N. J., April 25.—Dr. William H. Phipps, together with Rev. E. Taylor, rector of Christ church, visited Mrs. Parnell early Thursday morning. Dr. Phipps says he can see very little change in the condition of the aged woman since Wednesday night. She does not appear to suffer so much pain as she formerly experienced.
