Dear Pir : I have a cuso of this kind in
my district, und several other cases, in
volving tlto annio principle, among our
most intelligent and 1'esponsihlo citizens.
A poison, Homo twenty years n(.'0, pur
chased ft piece of land at a cost of one
thousand dollars, ami sold about one-fifth
of it (that of the least value) hist year, for
twenty thousand dullard. 1 1 o and others
claim this as their crpitid, and that the
law never contemplated taxing as incouut
operation of this kind, or translcrs ol
capital from ouo form of investment to
another. That, if this property had been
exehanpod for other red estate, or for
railroad or other slocks, no inconio tax
would havo been assessed or collected,
ami that tho fact of its having sold for
money, and that money re-invested in
other unproductive) real estate, building,

that Schleswig-Holslein and Lauenburg

to a mere speck on the map ; but it is cer
tainly as well as sho could expect, taking
in view the crcat military power rm-1 v v r n nr,i,.p nf n.n Ornhnii'i Court
