DIR. HERRING IS PLEASED
Glad the Income Tax Law Has been
IT WAS SINGULARLY UNJUST
By Its Provisions the Vory Rich Escaped
Tuxatlon-W. J. Burke Hill Find Ills
Oceupation Gone In Consequence
of the Court's Decision.
There Is no one In the city by whom
the declBlon of the United States su
preme court declaring the Income tax
law unconstitutional, was received with
more delight than Revenue Collector
Grant Herring. He has been working
day and night-getting his reports In
shape for transmission to Washington
for revision and approval, and had the
work practically completed when he re
ceived the following telegram from the
Income tax division of the treasury de
partment yesterday :
Washington, D. C, May 20.
Collector Herring, Scranton, Pa. :
Income tax law declared unconstitu
tional by supreme court. Stop all work
In connection therewith and Rend to
this office at once, under seal, all books,
Assessment lists, returns and records In
your office, or In the hands of your
deputies, relating to the Income tax.
Joseph 8. Miller,
Immediately upon receipt of the tele
gram Mr. Herring tilrected.hls'deputles
to get the returns, records, and bo forth,
in Bhape for shipment to Washington,
and before the closing of the office three
large packages of returns were pre
pared, sealed and directed. They will
day be forwarded to Washington. The
'decision of the supreme .court was
hailed with delight by every one con
nected with the revenue department ex
cept W. J. Burke, the Income tax dep
uty. The action of the court will leave
him outside the breastwork.
Ills Oceupation Gone.
When Mr. Herring became revenue
collector he appointed Mr. Burke gen
eral gauKer for the district at a salary
of $1,200 a year. Mr. Burke Berved In
that capacity until last January, when
he was promoted to the position of In
come tax deputy, with a sa'mry of J1.800
per year. In February he entered on
the duties of the new position and has
since devoted himself to gathering re
turns and compiling figures with regard
to the income tax. His position as
gauger was tilled by the appointment
of an ex-sheriff of Columbia county,
who now fills the position. Mr. Her
ring said last night that the knocking
out of the income tax would leave Mr.
Burke without a position In the revenue
department, as there Is no other place
open for him now. He will be employed
for the remainder of this month wind
ing up the business of his department.
"I wanted to Bee the supreme court
declare the income tax unconstitution
al," said Mr. Herring last night, "and I
am glad it has done so. 'It was unjust
In that the very rich escaped taxation,
and then again that Inquisitorial fea
ture was most obnoxious, most un-
American. There was the Inquisition
chair," remarked the collector, pointing
to a cane-bottomed chair close to his
desk. "That's where I seated my vic
tims while I plied them with all kinds
of Impertinent questions.
Had to Do His Duty.
"It was to me a distressing occupas)
tlon, and I tried to be as lenient and
gentlemanly as I could, but. of course.
certain questions had to be asked, and
while they sometimes amazed those to
whom they were put, they usually had
the good sense to understand that I
waa compelled to take the course I did
In the performance of my sworn duty.
"It is a somewhat curious coinci
dence that while we sent out 1,800
blanks, the returns show that just 900
of those to whom they were sent would
have had to pay tax under the decision
of the supreme court handed down sev
eral weeks ago. In the mutilated con
dition in which that decision left the
act, about $175,000 in income tax would
have been collected In this district. If
the original act had been declared legal
as It became a law, the government
would have been enriched $250,000 by
the tax from this district.
"The tremendous amount of work
that income tax business entailed fell
to a great extent upon myself and
deputies, for which I will not receive a
cent. Mr. Burke's salary was paid by
a special appropriation made by the
government, but It did not extend so
far aa to pay for the extra work of the
other revenue employes. We have
been working here every night since
test February, and for this work I will
have to pay. The expense to the gov
ernment In this district, entailed by the
act just declared unconstitutional, will
not exceed $500, but It will cost me be
tween $700 and $800, not to speak of the
amount of time and labor I have given
Wroto Two Thousand Letters.
"I personally examined every one of
the 1.800 returns received from this
district, and In connection with the re
ceiving and correction of them,, wrote
about 2,000 letters. Although our la-
bora were practically completed, I am
glad the act Is no more. A number of
our lists are now In Washington for
approval, and as soon as they were re.
turned we would be ready to begin the
collection of the tax. From time, to time
during the last six weks we received
checks for the tax from persons
throughout the district,- but returned
them with the information that we
were not yet ready to receive it. We
have, therefore, no money now on hand
to be returned to taxpayers. -
"It was not a just taut, for the very
rich escaped. Those on whom It fell
were banks, corporations generally,
other than railroad companies, mer
chants, professional, men and those In
moderate circumstances. In thla re.
spect It waa singularly unfair, but
there will soon be nothing . left here to
remind us of It.' May we never1 see an,
other law like It." "Every paper con,
nected with it will be tnt to Washing,
ton and nothing remain 1 ere for pry
ing eyes to see concerning the financial
condition of those who made returns.
"I would not be surprised, l owever,
If the returns were sent back to" us to
be given to those who made them, or
they may be mailed direct from the de
partment at Washington.

DOUBLE Tli.U'K AGAIN.
Franklin Avonue Cose Will Bo Rc-Opcocd
Attorneys of the Scranton Traction
company asked to have a hearing yes
terday In the Injunction granted by
Judge Gunster restraining the trolley
corporation from double tracking
Franklin avenue. Judge Gunster fixed
Thursday on which he will hear argu
ments. It Is already generally known that
the reason Judge Gunster Issued' the
Injunction was because the company
did not have the permission of city
councils before beginning the work.
There was on the street the track of
the Scranton Suburban Street Railway
company and the management of the
Scranton Traction company alleged
that It was justified In proceeding with
the construction of another track un
der the privileges granted by the
charter of the People's Street Railway
company, of Luzerne county, leased by
the present company. The property
owners opposed the double track be
cause they claimed It would depreciate
the value of their property and serious
ly Inconvenience the business of the
Judge Gunster enjoins the company
from laying the track, but the reason
was because the consent of the city
councils had not been obtained , by the
company to move the Suburban tracks.
That consent has been since received,
and the ordinance granting the privi
lege will be made a part of the argu
ment next Thursday.

day when grand Jury week of court
began, together with the first of equity
court In this county..
Within a year past the number of
cases where Injunctions have been ap
plied for have Increased to such an
extent that the Judges decided upon
forming a regular equity term, which
it has been decided, will be contem
poraneous with the grand Jury sessions.

Kcport of Constables.
Judge Edwards charged the grand
jury and did not say anything aside
from the regular Instructions the court
on such occasions gives; but the Jurors
were told to be careful and not publish
broadcast the deliberations of the Jury
room. A previous grand jury, he said,

their oaths by disclosing how the others
hud voted on certain bills that came
up for consideration. Samuel Williams,
of the West Side, was appointed fore
man' of the Jury, Tipstaff Rltter was
placed In charge, and they retired to

no Illegal whiskey selling going on, that

Ilcaumont Avenue Unsanitary.
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Allow me through tho columns
of your paper to call the attention of
Sanitary Officer Burke to the disgrace
ful condition of Beaumont avenue, be
tween Laurel and Warren streets. At
this point the street is completely sub
merged for a distance of seventy-five
feet, and In many places Is two feet
deep, which makes it impassable, and,
consequently, subjects those living In
that neighborhood to much Incon
venience. It will' also be a fruitful source of
disease In hot weather, AX. having no
outlet will In a very short time become
putrid, and the odor arising thefefrom
will carry with It messengers of sick
ness and death Into many families. It
is to avert this that we call the atten
tion of Officer Burke to It at this time.
