OPPOSING MR. OLNEY Choate Answers Argu ments in the Income- Tax Controversy. THE DEGREES OF WEALTH Counsel for Corporations Say They Are Not Equally Protected. m QUESTIONS OF UNIFORMITY. Rich Men May Escape the Levy by Putting Their Money In Savings Banks. "Wafhtnoton, March 13. — At the opening of the session of the Supreme Court Mr. Choate, resumed his argument about the constitutionality of the income tax. The inevitable income of all accumulated property, whether the rent of land or the interest on lands, is, he claimed, neces sarily the subject of direct taxation and of no other. He hoped to establish this fact and to further show that such a tax was subject to the rule of apportionment. Whatever else was not included in the term "direct tax" certainly real estate was included. There had been universal assent to this proposition, and he would take this as the basis of his tirst step. He controverted the proposition that this idea was to apply only to unim proved land, but conte...

The Influence of the "Octopus" Is Fast Waning and Its Grip Relaxes. SACRAMENTO, March 14.— Senator Biggy'a statement tuu had one effect. Had it not been for his action the Senate would certainly have passed the bill in the interest of the Market-street combine, re pealing the McCoppin act and permitting the strict railways of San Francisco to re fuse transfers and to charge more than 5 cents on most of its lines. When the bill came back from the printer to-day all of the amendments which Biggy had insisted upon were ac cepted with scarcely any dissent. The Freeman bill was restored to its original condition, that which existed prior to the Southern Pacific's successful effort to sneak in amendments, and beyond that a proviso was added that the act should not be con strued to repeal the McCopp...
