Dutlnetft Tax Constitutional.
WnHhlnKtoiii March 13. The corpo-
rntlon tax provisions of tliu Payne-
Aldrlch tariff net wcro sustained todny
nu constitutional by the supreme court
of the United HtntoH.
The court wan unanimous In the cor *

Of all the olijoctloim to the tax
ralHi'd by miltH In all parts of tlio coun

to nullify the law. The court did hold
that the tax watt not applicable to the

organlrntlon IH not under any statute
but under the coininon law. The law
waH held not applicable to the Minna-

on the ground that It wnn not "doing
bUHlncHn" within the moaning of the

by the Income rather than bing a tax
ou income , the opinion as given by
Juntlco Day proceeded to hold that the
law wiu ) constitutional notwlthstand-
Inn that the law might reach the In
come from non-taxable sources.
The light ngnlnHt the constitution-
nllty of the corporation tn.x begun nl-
most immediately after the enactment
of the I'ayne-Aldrlch tariff law of 1909 ,
of which It IB a part. During the long
days of wrangling In congress over
that incatuirc , President Taft originat
ed a plan to raise part of the revenue
nccesmiry for the running of the gov
ernment by imposing a corporation
tax. He ia nald to have made the
first rough draft of the proponed law
and to have naked the department of
jimtlcc to perfect it.
Scarcely llftoen yenrs before , the
supreme court of the United States
had declared unconstitutional the in
come tax measure enacted by con-
grcHK. In order to have a valid tax ,
the errors of that law had to bo avoid
ed. Finally the attention of members
of the hotmo and senate were called
to the proponed corporation tax as a
conutltutlonal measure. It was urged
a preferable to another income tax
which , It was argued , probably would
be declared unconstitutional and as
under the circumstances better legis
lation than nn Inheritance tax. When
the tariff bill was in the senate , the
corporation tax provisions were in
serted as nn amendment to the Payne
bill passed by the house. They re
mained there and became a part of
the tariff act.

On Wednesday t&c governor made
his appointment and Mr. Williamson
of Oacoma was designated to bo the
judge of the new circuit. The news
was received here in the afternoon.
There was much surprise expressed
at the action of-the governor , for it
was felt that it would be his object to
place the judgeship in either Tripp or
Gregory county , for the reason that a
greater number of people would bo in
closer proximity to the judge than to
appoint a candidate at Oacoma , which
is located in Lyman county , across the
White river. The population of Tripp
nnd Gregory counties is 21,000 to Ly
man county's 10,000. Again , the ap
pointment of Mr. Williamson is unsat
isfactory for the reason that he is a
very young attorney , having been In
the practice but a few years , and bis
experience is very limited. In point
of ability either Davis , McDonnell
Burch or Hannett were far his su
perior , either of whom have had many
years more experience than the suc
The News has only this comment to
offer , that when the time comes for
the election of a judge for the new cir
cuit by the voters of the district , we
feel confident that they will place the
judgeship whcro it belongs , south of
the White river and In the thickly set
tled portion of the district , and where
Governor Vessey would have placed it
had ho acted advisedly In the matter.
