Tax Attacked In U. S. Court Yale & Towne File Com? plaint Alleging Withhold? ing Money From Non-Res? idents Is Unconstitutional Will Be Argued Thursday Attorney General Newton to Appeal to Judge Hand for Dismissal of the ?Action A suit designed to test the legality of the new state income tax law in so far as it affects citizens of New Jersey and Connecticut and other non? residents- employed here has been filed in the United States District Court. Charges that the provisions of the law dealing with non-residents are un? constitutional are contained in the complaint filed in behalf of the Yale &? Towne Manufacturing Company, a Connecticut corporation, with general offices in this city, by its counsel, Louis H. Porter, F. C. Taylor and Archibald Cox, against State Con? troller Travis. The object of the suit is to prevent state officials from compelling the Yale & Towne Company to withhold the tax from the salaries of non-resi? dent employes, as pr.ovided under the act. The plaintiff asks the Federal courts !o protect it from any penalties the state may impose for refusal to moke the required deductions, which the company alleges will cause it addi? tional accounting burden, with extra expense, and lay it open to suits for the abrogation of its contracts to pay its employes full stipends. Says It Is Unconstitutional The ?suit raises the question of the constitutionality of the act, which al? lows New Yorkers exemption denied non-residents. Argument will be heard day after to-morrow by Judge Hand on a motion by Attorney General Xewton to dismiss t lie suit. The complaint says the Yale & Towne Company, whose home office is in Stam? ford, Conn , maintains an office here in which a large number of residents of Connecticut and New Jersey are em? ployed. The section of the complaint dealing with the withholding of sala? ries of non-resident employes reads: "The persons residing outside of the State of New York who are occupied in the conduct of the company's business either all or a portion of their working time in the State of New York, and ! whose annual salaries op fixed com? pensation exceed $1,000 a year, exceed ' fty in number, and their total salary or compensai ion exceeds S200.000. "The amount of the tax required by he State of New York to be withheld by the company from the salaries of its employes residing outside of the ?State of New York exceeds the sum of S3.000 per annum. The amount of expense to which the company would be put an? nually in withholding a percentage of 'he salarie-: of those employes, as re? quired bv the personal income tax law, would exceed $1.000." The company alleges that the law is unconstitutional and is in particular contrary to and in violation of, the iruarantees of the I'm ted ?States Con? stitution, as follows: "It Is contrary to and in violation of Article I, Section 8, of the Constitu? tion, in that it interferes with and directly burdens commerce between the different states; is contrary to and n violation of Article 1, Section 10, in that it impairs the obligation of ??ontracts between the company and its employes; in violation of Section .', Article 4, in that it deprives the ?itizens of the states of New Jersey and Connecticut of the privileges and immunities enjoyed bv the citizens of the State of New York, and is in vio? lation of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, in that it abridpos ?he privileges and immunities of citi? zens of the United Suites residing in rind citizens of Connecticut and New 'ersey, and state? other than N^w York, in that, it doprivps the com rany and its employes of their prop? erty without due process of all law, ?ind dpniei to them the equal protec? tion of the laws."

"piGTOWN is up in arms. Pigtown * is a section of Brooklyn in the vi? cinity of Empire Boulevard, where the favorite domestic pets are porkers and - goats. Just across lots lies Spotless | Town, a neighborhood where goats are unknown, but where lawns and shrub? bery flourish. Yesterday some thirty goats from Pigtown invaded Spotless Town and were munching on George C. Bennet's lawn at New t'ork Avenue and Crown Street. Bennet summoned Pa? trolman Studell and the two charged the goats. Twenty-nine fled. The one that stood, ground was lassoed and taken to the Gates Avenue police sta? tion. Later its owner, Kate Cuzzo, of ,"3 Empire Boulevard, came to claim it. She was referred to Magistrate Brown, who fined her ?2. The inhabitants of Pigtown declare the Spotless Town folks are entirely too stuck-up. Magistrate" house, who has been playing detective in his off hours to ascertain where motor law violations are the worst and who the offenders are, has received numerous letters at the Traffic Court from sec? tions of the city and suburbs which wish him to turn his attention to them. He was now working, he said, yes? terday, from 7 to 11 p. m., at his extra job, instead of from 8 to 10, and ex? pected to devote part of his vacation to the quest. rT,HF. police were late yesterday in -*? arriving at a christening party at 951 Grand Street, Brooklyn, and all the merrymakers but one had dragged themselves away. John Stortz, the one who remained, had been stabbed about the head and body and stamped on. He was taken to St. Catherine's Hospital. William , Uban, of 943 Grand Street, and Victor Azuk, of 103 Bushwick Avenue, who had injuries which led the polico to suspect they had attended the christen? ing, after receiving medical attention, were locked up suspected of being Stortz' assailants. JOSEPH A. VANDEGRIFT. of Great Neck, L. I., was found guilty in the Long Island City police court of driv? ing across Queensboro Bridge at the rate of twenty-seven miles an hour. Sentence was suspended becaus-e Mr. Vandegrift was so puzzled as to how he had managed to make twenty-seven miles an hour. He had the Mayor of Callao. Peru, in his car, he said, and was explaining to him the traffic regulations on the vari? ous bridges. Just before the patrol? man stopped them, Mr. Vandegrift said, he had pointed out to the Mayor of Callao a sign saying that no vehicle must exceed fifteen miles an hour and they both had glanced at the speed? ometer, to make certain that inadver? tently they were not exceeding the speed limit by half a mile or so.

Ship Owners Refuse Concessions to Men - Bi? Strike Is Again in Dead look, With 250 Vessels Tied Up in This Port and 14,000 Seamen Kept Idle Next Move Is Uncertain Seventeen More Boats Ar? rive and 1,000 Work-! ers Join in the Walk Ont j _ I Members of the American Steamship Association sat. in executive session yesterday and decided to offer no con? cessions to the International Seamen's Union. This leaves the strike situation at a deadlock. With 2?0 loaded ships undar the. American flag tied up in this port an?l 14,000 marine workers idle, the ship owners declare the next mova must come from the seamen. Union officials said the dispute might have to go to the Mediation and Conciliation Division of the Department of Labor for settlement.. "We are through. We are willing to adjust wages, hours and working con? ditions, but we will not submit to the demanils of the union, which are noth ing but an attempt to force us into a closed shr.p agreement. We will tie up the ship? and wait." This statement, was made by H. H. Raymond, president of the association and of the Clyde line, who was chair? man of the meeting. Mr. Raymond admitted that the owners would be willing to proceed on a basis of giving first preference to American seamen, union or non-union, with the union seamen to have second choice and the non-union aliens third. But he declared th?3 proposition, which had been suggested by union men wn merely camouflage. Only 60 Per Cent Organized "The union is only 60 per cent or? ganized on its own admission," he said. "I doubt if it has half of the men signed up. Its demands that we re? cognize the union mean that we must organize the men for it. Its delegates have passes to the piers. They ca? organize the seamen As far as Amer? ican seamen are concerned, we would hire them, bu*. there are few of them. "If we should sail with non-union members in a crew we would be obliged to discharge them when we returned to port and take on whate\*ler union men were nvilable, even though These men were satisfactory and were responsible citizen? with families on | shore." G_a H. Rrown, lender of the strik? ing seamen, said Mr. Raymond was l wrong in charging the union with ! camouflage in the preferential idea for A mericans. Both sides seemed to be uncertain I as to a definite move. Trie ship own 1 era did not adjourn to a net day, but ' announced that they would be "subject | to call not earlier than two days henci .' Mr. Brown i-aid the strikers would ; meet at once ?nd discuss matters. Mr. ; Raymond said the Ions due to the tie up v/ns negligible, and the strikers ?n ted they could remain out for i o itha Meanwhile freight hau been , piled up on maay piers, unmoved for ; day?i. More Trouble in Sight More trouble was forecast yesterday ' when Thomas L. DeJahunty announced i the text of a letter to all member, of : Hiibordinatf? associations of tho Na ? tional Marine Engineers* Beneficial As? sociation. "We aro going to go to bat August 1 for what, will mean a $3IS increase unless the Shipping Board and the ship ownera settle the wage question arid other working rules which were adopt? ed by this association and left to a committee for final adjustment," he said. The order allows until July 31 ns a period of gracj. It states: "Members of th?*j M. E. B. A- shsll sign no ship's articles on or after Augutit 1, 3 910, that do not pro-14? a guarantee that wage rates and other conditions nominated into such wage scale and working rules shall he. ef? fective on that ship." The order says that in this new de? mand the wage rate to chief engineers shall be not more than $'J5 per month less than that of the master. The wage is divided into five classes, according to tonnage. A eniof engineer in Class A under this propos?e! schedule would re ceive $375 a month. At the seamen's strike headquarters in the Hotel Continental it was an nounced that seventeen ships had come into port during the day, addintr 1,000 men to the strike. The ships are now tied up. Two Sign Agreements Two tugboat companies signed agreements with the union. One was the Atlantic Transportation Company, which ?perates a line of deep sen tugs. The steamer City of Pueblo, formerly a West Coast passenger vessel, which was tied up at a pier in South Brook? lyn, also reached a separat?? r.grcement with the union. The firemen, oilers and water tenders on several towboata engaged in carry? ing coal from New York to No.w ling land ports, walko?! out. yesterday, l"-ey asked for $15 a month increase in pay The men worked on the tugs Ontario and Western, of the New Yors, Oritarit & Western Railroad.

New York City Is Not in Market for Army Canned Food Newark is Largest Munici? pal) ly Preparing to Take Advantage of Government Offer of Reduced Prices New York City, the largest potential bidder for some of the millions of j pounds of bacon, canned meats and canned vegetables which the army has for sale, made no effort yesterday to get in touch with Lieutenant Frank A. Dee, who is in charge of the surplus ; property division of the Quartermaster Corps and is 'Handling the aale of ths ' foodstuffs purchased originally Tor sol dier consumption. Lieutenant Dee mailed circulars on I Saturday calling to the attention of heads of hundreds of Eastern munici palities the sale of the army food a* sacrifice prices. The government is ' prepared to sell the stores to munici palities at SO per cent of the cost. As most of the food was purchased when prices were from 20 to 30 per cent lower than now, the stores could be bought, at, 60 per cent of the prevailing open market quotations. Five cities communicated with Lieu? tenant Di-e for additional information yesterday. Newark, N. J., was the largest of these. Mayor Gillen was , granted authority by the City Commis- I sion to make purchases. Temporary ! loan bonds will be issued, it was an- j nounced, to raise $100,000 for the pur- | pose. It is planned to use some of the i food in city institutions and to resell the remainder to the public. At present. Lieutenant Dee an? nounced, the sale is limited to bacon, canned beef and canned vegetables. Later, he said, roasting chickens will be offered. Dealers and organizations cannot purchase the stores at present, he declared. The bacon, in strips, is being offered at 34 cents a pound. Canned bacon \ will bring 30 cents. These prices are from 10 to 12 cents lower than pre- ' vailing retail quotations for similar quality. The roast beef will bring from 33 to 41 cents, according to quality and packing:. The corned beef is proffered at from 33 to 40 cents a pound and corned boef hash frcm 20 to 23 cents. Dr. ?lonathan C Day, Commissioner of Public Markets, said yesterday that he is in favor of city supervised pur? chases of some of the food. "The city of New York is prevented, by laws passed by the Legislature last year, from purchasing food," said Dr. Day. "The only way in which the city could buy some of the army food would be for Mayor Dylan to appoint a com? mittee (if public spirited men to obtain subscriptions to a fund. The commit? tee could supervise the purchases and sales." Dr. Day did not know whether Mayor Hylan was considering the appoint? ment of a committee, although he said he has spoken to him about it. Lieutenant Dee said yesterday that the food now held by the army would affect prices in genera! only if released at once. Even then, he declared, the effect would be temporary.
