Bond Feature for Imported Birds
Before Federal Supreme Court.
Questions lmui»tag the constitutionality of cer
tain parts of the forest, fish and game laws of. this
• •ire win be settled by the I'nited Stares Supreme
Court in a case which will be presented to that
tribunal to-day. The question Involved is, in a gen
eral way. whether or not the state has a right to
pas=s -a law requiring a person to put tip a bond
as one of the requisites for holding property.
The case is that of August £51::. of Kings County,
an extensive dealer in Imported game, who on
March S^', 1505. was arrepted by Sheriff Hesterberg
on the charge of violating the game law in
hating in his possession the bodies of a golden
plover and a grouse. in MM Congress passed a law
by which all imported game fith»-r for purpose of
consumption or storaee cam« under the game laws
cf the state into which it was brought ju?t the
same -1? if it had been produced in that state.
The plover c«mf from Bnr:*nO and the grouse
ttom Russia, an.l had been .brought i Into King*
County in the '-•p« r ii season there for such birds.
The duty was regularly paid. The birds were held
by llr. Silz over Into the closed season.. The law
provider a penalty for possessing a plover or a
grouse between January l and July 15, but states
that a man may retain possesion of such birds
as he carries over from the open to the closed
seasons 1" he gives a bond not to dispose of them
in the closed season. Mr. Si^z had no bond, and,
although he made no attempt to sell the birds, he
was arrested.
The case was taken to the court? on a writ of
hab€a;= corpus, it being declared that the law was
unconstitutional, as it deprived a man of his prop
erty rights. The law was upheld by the Court
of Appeals, but an appeal was token by E. R.
Finch, counsel for Silz. and the case will now be
considered by the highest tribunal of the land.
Thr fine which might have been imposed on Sill
was only $50, but lie has spent thousands of dol
lars in fighting for what he considers a principle
and on behalf of the many game dealers in this
city and other para of the state. Assistant Attor
ney General James A. Donnelly went to Washing
ton last night to uphold the state's side cf the

\ showing the relative increase in the assessed value
J of New York real estate, he said:
"The assessed value of realty Is increased much
j more rapidly than either the total budget or the
j Tax Department appropriation. The cost of the
i Tax Department and the city budget have in
j creased upon almost parallel lines." He said fur
! th«r that bis department "under th» new law had
• bills re«.<iy for payment on the Srat Monday In
' October on over |M •■ ••' of real estate, which
' under the old law could not have been ready until
j from two weeks io four months after the tax was

COTTON— The cotton market lost part of a Fha-p
opening advance, but closed steady :- tone, with pricea
h«l3 points net higher. Sales for the day were ~stimat»d
at loti.oc.x) bales. The upward movement was due to
. better Liverpool cables than expected and reports that
i Lancashire operatives had agreed to accept the 5 per cent
j reduction in wages, providing the question couid be r^
i opened in three months. Later, however. <-at>lr>s were re
ceiver! saying that the masters shewed no s j^ nB r ,{ ae _
j cepttss this proposition. It was considered In l.x-al circles
I that the proposal of the ; . ■■--.. indicative of a
I weakening on their part, which would be speedily followed
j by a settlement of the troubles and a renewal o" activity.
I This lew at the situation found expression in the shape
of covering and snrne buying for in\ esiment account, which
I was offset to a large extent by continued Southern h"'i^e
j selling and realizing by old lungs. The market opened
log 17 points net higher. Fold off to within :5 or 4 points
I of Saturday's close, then steadied again with last prices,
] only 3 or 4 points off from, the best on active m>nt^s.
; The big -.-.■■■ receipts at lea,j;n ?
I points helped the decline during th" ... hut dv Is
I r'aimed that these rene.-te<3 & much larger forward buU
j ness tnan the trade ha.i imagined, and. while advices frcrn
I Southern markets were more or Ices conflicting, the quo
tations officially reported were unchanged to .1-16? higti' r.
' Wires from New Orleans said that short? had covered.
j The weather map was somewhat uisapp.>inting from a

day last y**ar. Rumors of ratr; in th<» Sonthwest
al;«o caused some s^lhng. Advices from Misneap—
I olis stated that th«» milling demand for whent
continued good, with flour sales large, but that
export demand wa.-« indifferent. Kxport lietnar.J
in general was slack, although 12 boatloads wer<»
reported '"worked" at New York, which report,
however, was not condrra*^. Th» market closed
weak, with December and May at almost the low
est point. Clearances of wheat and flour w»r»
equal to tSJ.'XHi bushels. Th<» amount en passage

Duluth and Chicago reported receipts of I.i3> car?,

Corn developed moderate firmness early In th*
I day as a result of the advance in wheat, but sub
: se*juently weakened on selling by small holders.
The weather continued ideal for putting th- n«*
crop in shape for market, and the prospect o* a
libenl increase in movement in the near Ctatarw
offset small current receipts and a large decrease
in local stocks. The close was easy, at declines
of 3^c to Sc. Lo«~a.t receipts were 117 cars, with 2?
I of contract grade.
OaTs were steady the early part of the day. but
eased off late in the session, owins to th* weak
ness of other grains. Trade was quiet all day.
There was a good demand for rash oats, and
l prices ■■ the sampie tables were steady- At tho
I ciose prices were unchanged to 14.cl 4.c lower. Local
! receipts were 2C» cars.
Selling of provisions was general, and prices
! slumped sharply. October pork, which hati a sen
sational rise a: the close on Saturday, was offered
j down to JI4, or a decline of $IZ>> a barrel. Th*
! extreme fluctuations in this delivery caused talk
to the effect that the bcart! of directors woulrj b»>
a«kerf to rcak" an investigation. A lOC to I. r -c de
cfine in the price of live hog* was largely re
sponsible for the weakness of the market in gen
eral- At the close prices were unchanged to II -»
