State Income
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
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
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."

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.

Crown Street. Bennet summoned Pa?

the goats. Twenty-nine fled. The one

Members of the American Steamship
Association sat. in executive session
yesterday and decided to offer no con?
cessions to the International Seamen's
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

Mr. Brown i-aid the strikers would

ted they could remain out for

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?
"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
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.

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
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.
