eoce was tne order of the oouri forui re
hearing in tine -income tax cases. This
hearing was, however, necessarily post
poned while the coux announced opin
ions in several other cases.
These and other preliminaries having
been disposed of, W. D. Gmthrie, one of
the attorneys for the appellants, Messrs.
Hyde and Pollock, in the income tax
cases, was recognized by the court to be
gin his argnnaents;for the consideration
of these cases.
Before Mr. Guthrie began the chief
justice, after calling the case, stated
that in response to the suggestion of the
attorney general; which the court inter
preted as virtually amotion for a re
hearing, the court had decided to per
mit counsel to go into all the questions
involved. He said the rehearing had
been dependent upon the presence of
Justice Jackson, which had now been
happily realized. The coart had found
it necessary to limit the argument to
two counsels on each aide, bat it was for
counsel to say what time they would re
quire. Thereupon Mr. Choate and At
torney General Olney, after consulta
tion, announced that, five hours on each
side would be sufficient, and this time
was irranted. judge Wilson wasaiso
permitted on behalf of John Goode to
file a brief in the present case.
Gathrie'a OpcBlaa Argameat.
Mr. Guthrie began by saying that
counsel for the appellants in the cases
had been subjected to considerable crit
icism for their motions for a rehearing,
hut they had felt justified in the realisa
tion of the fact that there were many
points still undecided in the final and
definite adjudication of what the entire
country was vitally interested in, and
he assured 'all concerned that
the counsel for the appellants
in tne pressnc case wouia ap
prove it in a spirit of the highest patri
otism and with no desire for mere self
aggrandizement. He said the question
involved was a constitutional one, and
added: "The constitution is the polit
ical creed of the nation, which must
control and rule our destinies and, in
sofar as this court shall preserve it in
'tact, according to its letter and its
spirit, or permit the darkness of error to
affront its light, so will Jbe our future
progress or decline, happiness or misery,
glory or shame. ' '
Assistant Attorney General Whitney,
on behalf of the government, followed
Mr. Guthrie. He made a strontr argu
ment in favor of incomes from rents be
ing taxable. .
Americas Apples Under the Ban.
"Washington, May (".It appears from
a report made byConsular Agent Kraus at.
Seitu, Germay, that the American meat
is not the only product of the United
States which has fallen under the ban
of German consumers. American evap
orated apples have been condemned in
German journals to such an extent that
the demand has fallen off perceptibly.
It was stated that these apples were suf
