Fate of the Income Tax Law Bests with Justice Jackson. Impression Becoming Stronger That Supreme Court Will Declare Law Unconstitutional. WASHINGTON, May 9.—The argument in the reopened income-tax case was concluded Wednesday afternoon, Joseph H. Choate making the closing speech for tho overthrow of the law. For some indefinable reaso.n the impression is becoming stronger that tho supreme court by the deciding vote of Associate Justice Jackson will declare the law to be unconstitutional. That Judge Jackson's mind is made up and that his conviction, ono way or the other, must be deeply rooted is the generally accepted construction placed ou his anxiety to make the long and trying journey to the capitol to decisively participate'in the finding which is to make or unmake the law. Only the strongest feelings or a high sense of duty could impel a man in Judge Jack- eon's critical state of health to endanger his life to sit in a case involving a civil principle. He virtually occupies JUSTICE H. E. JACKSON. the position of umpire in this case, the court standing four to four on the main issue—the constitutional right of congress to tax incomes—and he alone will- decide the fate of the laiv. Should the decision be against the law, a determined effort will be made in congress next winter to set the machinery in motion for the adoption of an amendment to the constitution providing specifically for the taxing of incomes. Mr. choiite Concladott. Joseph H. Choate began the second installment of his argument with a brief reply to some of the suggestions of the attorney general. A synopsis of Mr. Choate's remarks follows: Tie attorney RCmoral wanted to know, Mr. Cioato said, how IOIIK the exemption claimed lor rentals lusted. Was It or.o yenr, or flvo, or ton? Did It follow the money niter Its investment In new Jorms of property? The law taxes receipts from rent »t the time they como Into the posesslon of the owner, und Mr. Choato said ho would not bo so foolish as to claim that rent tnonoy after tho year it was received could not be made tho subject ot taxation oy either tho state or United States. Tax on Jpornonal Property. Mr. Choute soon addressed himself directly to tho discussion of the matters loft In dispute by tno decision of the court. In the light ot tho declarations in that decision, the llrat related to the tax on personal property, and his contention was that the corpus of personnl property was entitled to the same protection as real estate and that a tax on tho income derived tlierefrom was a direct lax as much as a tax on resits. And in this position ho was aided by the frank avowal of the attorney general that it was logically so. Validity of tlui Act. Mr. Choate then proceeded to present argument on the question as to whether the Inroads made upon tho law by tho decision already made, and that which he hoped would be made, constitute an invalidation ot tho whole act. Does It follow because the act has boon loft In its present mangled and mutilated condition it should be burled; I submit that It does necessarily follow that that argument must bo answered in tho affirmative. This mangled and mutilated corpse has too long remained unouried. He chcit a decision by Chief Justice Shaw, who stated that though parts of an act are unconstitutional, -other parts of the same act may have the full force 1 of law. in tho sama manner It these several enactments had bees made by different statutes. But this must be taken with this limitation, that the parts so held respectively constitutional and unconstitutional, must be wholly Independent of- each other. But if they arc so mutually connected with and dependent of each other, os conditions, considerations or compensations for each, other, as to warrant a belief that the legislature Intended them as a-whole, and that, if, oil could not be'car- ried Into effect, the legislature would not pass tho residue Independently, and some parts are unconstitutional, all tha provisions which are thus dependent, conditional, or connected, laust.faU with tbem." Icls also elsewhere stated by tMs court that unless tha court can see It was tho Intention ol congress to pass the law as it Is left, shorn ot the part found to be unconstitutional, the whole must fall. • • • . Mr. Choate said the census report shows that tho value of tho property exempted by the recent decision of tho court exceeds $40,000.000,000. The 2 per cent., opon this Is to be counted by millions. The estimate made by the treasury department at the time of the passage of the law was that tho law' would yield, levied upon all these incomes, from J30,- 000,000 to SiO.OOO.OOO. . He did not know what the returns" which had come in. revl .cd b- tto cour:'.; ruling, amounted to, but he • .•••.'.'; vec- turc t.he assertion that 1 not onc-i'-i; j. what congress Intended would be yielded by the enforcement of. the law in iw present state, ami but little would be left if the court decided to strike out also the ineome from personal property. . '•' . ' Cla-is Aimed.at Escape*. This was a general scheme oj .Income,tut, to; twar upon the .whole people who could! not procure their exemptions In due season;»t tho of the committees of congress. Waal was the object of It? it was. to stnue at me accumulated wealth of the old seaboard states, If your honors please. In. the debates of congress the name of one man, conspicuous above all tho rest, was said to be toe object struck at because ho lived abroad, becauso he owned acres ana square miles of Incomo-yield- Ing real estate, because he used nothing in America which was the subject of an Indirect tax. and therefore there was no other way of reaching him. And ho slipped through their hands under your honors' decision: and everybody in [he same category has done the like. Can you see that congress, under tbo circumstances, would have agreed upon the passage of the law if It had seen that tho principal object of the law •was to esoape it by tno unconstitutionally of Its chief provision? A Tm on Labor. Again, who are loft? Landholders have escaped; bondholders haye escaped. We believe your honors will be -constrained to hold that tho receivers of incomes from personal property will escape. Who arc left to bo taxed? We are loft, tho bone and sinew and brains and norvo scattered throuchout this great community of 70,000,000 people- Wlm was Intended to bo a tax upon capital turns out to be a tax on' labor. How lor.y do you suppose a congress In which the balance of power was hold, to give it tho most dlgnltled name, by what is called the people's party, would have consented to levy a tux upon tho pooplo only, omitting all recourse to tho accumulated wealth of the country ond its Income; The LHW Mu»t L'nll. Whatever way you look at it, whether ut.the mangled condition of the law, the failure of its purpose, its incidence ju«t whore the people who pussod it, tho legislature, did not intend it should fall, or the purpose octual or declared and avowed, or possible and only to be guessed at that they had In view—I say Uiat whatever way you look at It, within Justice Shaw's delimtlon or any definition ever laid down which can bo called authoritative, tula act as It now stands, mangled b.v tao pruning knife of tho constitution. In the hands of this court, your honors cannot see thut tho legislature ovoi would have passed In this form. On tho contrary you can see. and unless you shut your eyes '.o absolute blindness you must see, taat the legislature never would have so unacted it. j(»Ht.H with Mi" Court. Mr, Choato finished his closing argument at 2 o'clock p. m... and the supreme court adjourned imtll Monday, May .20, when a de- dsion may 1)0 announced. BfcTTER PAY FOR'WORKMEN.
