Court fctrenlfr Divided. CHICAGO April 8.—A special dispatch to The TrSmne from Washington, says: The United States supreme court in the income ta* case, has reversed the decision oE the lower court, but them, come tax law as a whole is upheld, but only by a divided court. Two important portions of the law, however,have been decided to be unconstitutional, andthey are so serious as to effect ma- ferially not only the revenues of the government, but the estimation which the income ta: the people. Rents, State and City Bonds Under the decision to be handed by the court, all incomes derived from r JJs ire exempted from taxation by the JedSal government, and all .incomes derived from state nftd municipa bonds are SUnrly exempted. Bother respects the income tax law stands as it was passed last August, but the result of the consultations in the supreme cour shows very conclusively that Selaw can be easily picked to pieces provided suits are brought to contest each particular point that cornea up. A Curious Fact. It is a curious fact, but none the less true, that the law which was passed at the dictation of the Populistic wing of a Democratic congress has been dis- tor ted by the decision of tie Uiiitea StatU stipreme court, clearly on constitutional grounds, in such a way that it wil1 absolutely protect the class of cap- SSsts most offensive to the Populistic filGlUGllt;. M -i The landlords of the country will pay no income tax. The owners of bonds of almost any kind, either federal stite county or municipal, will also be free, while the business man, the manufacturer and the salaried em- clove will for the present, at least, toe compelled to contribute to the treasury of the United State government Z per cent of all income in excess of $4,000 FAVORABLE W FEDERATION. ficlte*ett ft Contention tit Central American States Wilt Be field Soon. WASHINGTON, April 6.—A convention some time this year of the several countries of Central America with a view of forming a confederation of union simi* lar to the United States is regarded as a probability by Central American diplomats. These diplomats state that the subject is under discussion in their countries, and that a time and place for the convention probably will be fixed soon. Two such conventions have been held in Guatemala and Costa Rica, but they failed to effect definite results, although showing a favorable feeling among the influential classes towards such a union. Recent events, particularly the threatened war between Mexico and Guatemala, has more forcibly directed the attention of the Central American states to the desirability of a federal nation, and Great Britain s demands on Nicaragua have tended in the direction. A diplomat of extended experience in Central America said that the leading public men, and the people at large are so strongly favorable to a federation that in his opinion it is sure to come. BVVtOT WAS ELECTED REPUBLICAN CANDIDAtE OP CHICAGO GOES MAV6R IN. TOO MUCH SUGAR. The first meeting of the supreme court was held March 10, two days after the conclusion of the arguments but no decision was reached, and it was not until Match 30 that they succeeded in agreeing upon the outlines of a de- tision, covering the opinion of the lower \Vost India Committee of London Issues a Circular About It. WASHINGTON, April 8.—Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British ambassador, has furnished to the department of state a copy of a circular issued by the West India committee of London concerning sugar production. The ambassador explains that it is not to be regarded as an expression of opinion by his government. The circular calls attention to the fact that the sugar industry, beet as well as cnue, is passing through a crisis of the most serious description and expresses the hope that in attempting to provide a remedy the various governments should avoid any steps which may Aggravate the Case iustead of relieving it. It is shown that while the production is increasing at the rate of a million tons per annum the consumption grows slowly at the rate of only 250,000 tons per annum. Naturally prices are depressed and the bounty system is ascribed as the cause of this state of affairs. Therefore, it advises the entire abolition of the bounty and the stimulation of consumption by the reduction of the duties levied on sugar, which are excessive in Europe, and prevent the people as a whole from using sugar. tie Is Elected Municipal Elections tteld 1ft ft Nntntoer of Nofrth*e»tertt States—S6W6 bt the Results. CHICAGO, April 4.—The returns from the municipal election indicate that the Republicans have obtained a complete victory, electing George B. Swift, their candidate for niayot, by a plurality of over 40,000. In addition to the mayor, the Republicans have, the returns indicate, elected their candidates for assessor, collector, supervisor and town clerk in all the towtts, making a clean sweep of all the town offices. Of the aldermen, the Republicans have certainly elected 20 out of the total of 84. Frank Lawler, the ex-con- grcssnian, who ran as an independent in the Nineteenth ward, is elected by a good majority. The proposition to put the police and all other city officials under civil service rules and extend the mayoralty term to four years, was carried by a majority larger than that obtained by Swift. At the last mayoralty election, when Mayor Hopkins was elected to fill the xinexpired term of Mayor Harrison, the Democratic plurality was 1,290. At the last state election, in the same wards, the plurality of Wulff, Republican candidate for Btnte treasurer, was 44,003. CONTEST VERY CLOSE. DOLE WAS SNUBBED. nut Court Evenly Divided. The court was evenly divided, Justice Jackson being too ill to take part. Justice Fuller, Justices Field, Gray and Brewer were opposed to the law. Justices Har- Hi Brown, Shiras and White voted to sustain the law. The expectation among members of the court is that the decision will be rendered on Monday in open court, but there is a bare possibility that the court may again be split up into irreconcilable sections, and hold up the decision. B the next congress does not repeal the law wih the sanction of the president there will be a sudden rise in the price of all local public securities, as well of all real estate, for, as they mil be exempted from taxation, they ought to get the benefit of the 2 per cent which other income producers are obliged to account lO- 1 , ' ' SAYS IT'S CORRECT. A Supreme Jud K e Practically Admits the Truth of the Report. CHICAGO, April S.-The Tribune has the following from Washington: One of the justices of the supreme court practically admitted after the consultation Saturday afternoon that the abstract and the decision in the income tax case printed in The Tribune was absolutely correct and tallied with the printed copies furnished the judges early Friday evening. He alleged, however, that The Tribune's article W as simply the work ofa clever observer who had successfully put two and two together and arrived ataresult practically correct. Whether the judges had done anything to change the decision of their meeting Saturday after noon he would not say, of course, fur ther than to admit the publication of the decision had become known to the judges. Willis Gives a Brilliant Reception, Fails to Invite the President. WASHINGTON, April 6.—The last mail from Hawaii brings an interesting budget of general information. An account is published of the brilliant reception given by Minister Willis to Admiral Beardslee, to which President Dole was not invited. It was attended by all the American officers 'from the highest down to the cadets, wearing their gorgeous uniforms. The band of the Philadelphia was stationed in the house and played for two hours. The reception was attandad by the elite of the city and is said to have been a success in every raspeot. HARRISON WILLING. Hon. J. S. Clarkson Declares the Ex-President Is a Candidate for Nomination. CHICAGO, April 5. -General J. S. Clarksou, who is in Chicago, stated positively that ex-President Harrison is a candidate for the presidency. "General Harrison," he said, "is not an active candidate perhaps, but he certainly is a 'receptive candidate.' Indeed he is, I think, one of the most prominent, if not the most prominent presidential candidate now before the public. As to who willba the party's choice in 1890, I am, of course, unable to say, but it is very certain that General Harrison will accept the nomination if it is tendered him." OtHclal Count May Be Required to Settle the Wisconsin Judicial Contest. MILWAUKEE, April 4.—The vote between the candidates for the supreme court judgeship—Clemeutson and Winslow—will probably be very close, and it may require the official ballot to determine the result. Forty-nine counties out of 70 in the state give estimated returns of 19,091 for Clementson and 19,579 for Winslow. The returns are in many cases estimated, although some are complete. Estimates of the state made at'1:30 o'clock give majorities for Winslow amounting to 24,471 and for_ Clementson of 22,404, or a net majority ior Winslow of 2,367. WinsloTv's Majority 8,500. MILWAUKEE, April 6.—The official canvas made in many Wisconsin counties increases Wiuslow's net majority for the supreme justiceship to 7,832, and the probability is that the official count in the counties in which the vote is at present estimated will increase the vote to 8,500.
