Calls Walker Data ‘Charges’ and Indicates Ouster Is Requested. By the Associated Press. ALBANY. N. Y.. June 9.—Samuel Seabury's "analysis" of the Mayor Walker ease today was flatly termed •• charges" against the New York City official by Gov. Roosevelt. -I see no reason for quibbling over terms." he said as he sat at his desk with eight volumes of testimony and a letter from Seabury before him. He dictated the following statement to newspaper men: 'Late last night there was delivered at the executive mansion the following documents: “l.A letter from Judge Seabury, which he already had given to the press. Plans to Rush Study. *'2. A printed memorandum on 21 pages entitled 'Analysis of Evidence,’ which also has been published. "3. Two large packages containing eight volumes of transcript of evidence totaling 2,474 pages. “All of these v.ill be read as fast as possible. It is, of course, necessary to check all of the testimony with the al legations. "The letter and document termed ‘analysis' constitute, of course, charges. I spe no reason for quibbling over terms ” The Governor said he had not read ti e Feaburv letter or looked inside the vol"tips of testimony. H? was asked wnat would tc his next move. "There is one obvious step.” Roose velt answered, "and that's to read the documents." The Governor expects to commence reading the testimony tonight. He will take the volumes with him to his home In Hyde Park over the week end ajid will devote as much time as possible to the reading of the 600.000 words compiled by the Legislative Committee which has been investigating New York City affairs. Takes Role of Judge. It was pointed out by those close to the Governor that Mr. Roosevelt, in labeling the Seabury letter a •'charge” against Walker, considered himself to be acting as a judge with Seabury as the prosecutor. The text of the Seabury letter was taken to mean that Seabury had asked the removal of Walker and would be prepared to prosecute his allegations as a quasi public official. The Walker case, packed with poten tial political dynamite, was dropped on the Governor's doorstep last night, less than a week after Roosevelt demanded that the New York investigators take action if they believed action warranted. The Governor was in bed when the papers, calling Walker "unfit" and likening his exolanaticn of his funds to a “tin box” alibi, were delivered by two of Seabury's assistants. Nobody at the Capitol expects the case to be concluded before the Demo cratic National Convention. The pro cedure in previous similar cases took several weeks. Fifteen Counts Listed. Listing 15 counts against the mayor, Seabury said he made no recommenda tion, and did not speak for the Legisla tive Investigating Committee, of which he is counsel, but as a private citizen. Among his conclusions were that the mayor and Sherwood received S48.000 from firms interested in taxieab legis lation; that the mavor held $10,000 bonds of a firm which got a city con- j tract; that the mayor acted improperly to procure a franchise for the Equitable Coach Co., and received a S10.000 letter of credit from cne of the Equitable agents: that he improperly accepted ‘'beneficences"; that he failed to ex plain scati-factonly the source of de posits of $961,000 made by Sherwood: that he made no due effort to find Sherwood; that he failed to produce complete records of his own transac tions: that he permitted the designa tion, in city compensation.eases, of doc tors who split fees with the mayor's brother. He said that “generally since he as sumed office” the mayor's conduct has been characterized by ''malfeasance and nonfeasance.” PLAN FORMAL CHARGES. New 1 ork Civic Groups Telegraph Roosevelt of Intentions. NEW YORK. June 9.—William J. Schieffelin, chairman of the New York Committee of One Thusand. today sent a telegram to Gov. Roosevelt announc ing that formal charges against Mayor James J. Walker are in process of preparation and will be forwarded to the Governor by the committee. Maurice P. Davidson, chairman of the Executive Committee of the New York Commititce of One Thousand, an nounced that the New York Society for the Pieventicn of Crime and the Citizens’ Union would join with the Committee of One Thousand in pre senting the charges to the Governor. He added that the City Affairs Commit tee also was contemplating joining the other three bodies in the action. Davidson's announcement pointed out that Seabury's letter to the Governor said he had "no petition or request to make in reference to the matter," and that in the absence of any such specific request or petition “the New York Com mittee of One Thousand believes it to b? its clear duty to submit a petition to the Governor * * foimally stating the charges against the mayor * * ' and praying for his removal irom office by the Governor in accord ance wuh the powers conferred upon him by the constitution of the Slate of New York."

IN MAPES Bill I Maryland, Virginia Groups Hit Tax on Non-Resi dent Incomes. Protests against a provision in the Mapes income tax bill for the District which would tax the income on non residents were made to the Senate Dis trict Committee yesterday afternoon by J. Bond Smith, chairman of the Legis lative and Legal Action Committee of the Montgomery County Civic Federa tion, and H. J. McGrath of the Arling ton County Civic Federation. The committee concluded hearings on the bill shortly after receiving these protests, but Chairman Capper said he was uncertain when a report would be prepared. Money Spent Here. Smith pointed out that probably more than one-half of the income of the average resident of Montgomery County is spent in the District. As a result, he said, this increases the in come of the District and the taxes which the District will derive, while Maryland will not be benefited and the tax will not make possible an increased amount of taxes for Maryland. He called attention to a resolution adopted by the Montgomery County Federation describing the bill as "inex pedient and oppressive" because it seeks to impose for the benefit of the Dis trict an income tax upon persons who are not residents. Cites Report. "The unfairness of the proposed ex tension of taxation of incomes to non residents of the District of Columbia,’’ Smith declared, "is well illustrated in a portion of the Bureau of Efficiency report dealing with reciprocity with the States, and the bureau suggests a pro viso to be added to section 10 provid ing for reciprocity with States which now impose and collect an income tax on their residents. "It so happens that the State of Vir ginia does levy and collect a State in come tax, whereas the State of Mary land has thus far found it possible to secure sufficient revenue without the imposition of such a tax. Even if the proviso suggested by the bureau should be inserted in the bill, Maryland resi dents would, therefore, not be affected. "Under the present situation, the in come tax proposed to be levied on Mary land residents under the pending bill is in all respects an additional tax not compensated for directly or indirectly as in the case either of the residents of the District of Columbia or residents of Virginia. Declared Oppressive. ‘‘Under these circumstances, there can be no question that the tax is not only oppressive to that extent, but is objectionable because of its discrimina tory features toward residents of Mary land.-' Smith said if the committee adopted the Bureau of Efficiency recommenda tion for reciprocity with other States imposing an income tax, a proviso should be added to the bill stipulating that no tax should be imposed on non residents of the District who are resi dents of States in which no income tax is levied. Warned by Donovan. Maj. Daniel J. Donovan. District auditor and budget officer, told the committee if Smiths recommendations are adopted, residents of Maryland wculd entirely escape the District tax, whereas those in Virginia, which has a State income tax. wculd be subject to the District fax. Such a situation, he said, would be inequitable and unfair, and to preclude it he urged on behalf of the District Commissioners an amendment to a reciprocity provision propcsed by the Bureau of Efficiency, which would require non-residents in States not having an income tax law to pay a tax to the District on their in tangible personal property. McGrath pointed out that many Arlington County residents employed or engaged in business in the District wculd not be affected by the proposed income tax under the reciprocal amend ment recommended by the Efficiency Bureau. He also declared it would be illegal for the District to tax the income of Federal employes as a local tax. Maj. Donovan explained later that the Commissioners had agreed to an amendment eliminating nen-resident Federal employes from the provisions of the bill. Insurance Amendment. Representatives of a group of life in surance. fire insurance, casualty and surety ccmpanics proposed an amend ment to exempt such corporations from the income tax on the ground that they already are paying to the District either a gross income tax or a tax on premium receipts. Chairman Capper explained that the entire section cf the bill deal ing with taxes on corporations would be considered later in a saparate bill which also would cover public utility corporations. Those who urged the amendment in cluded Hobart S. Weaver, Association of Life Insurance Presidents; F. S. Dickson, National Board of Fire Under writers; H. J. Drake, Association of Casualty and Surety Executives, and He ward Casey, general counsel for the Acacia Mutual Life Insurance Co. Julian Brylawski of the Stanley Crandall Co. of Washington, a Warner Brothers subsidiary, urged the commit tee to write into the bill a provision providing a consolidated return for cor porations. A local sales tax in lieu of the pro posed income tax and the existing tax on intangible personal property was rec i ommended by Rear Admiral W. L. Rod gers of the Dupont Circle Citizens' As sociation. Such a tax. he said, would be evenly distributed according to spending power and thus remove the inequities in an income tax. Other witnesses included Frank P. Lord, who advocated a single real estate property tax. and E. B. Hem mingway, who opposed the Mapes bill. SPEEDBOAT HITS CUTTER Crashes Into Stern of Coast Guard Craft at 40 Miles an Hour. CLEVELAND, June 9 W5).—Skimming , Lake Erie at a speed of 40 miles an ; hour, a speedboat, the Miss Redemption, rammed a cutter in the darkness early Tuesday, tearing away a great hole in the Government boat's stern. Each boat wallowed into port under its power. Two Coast Guardsmen and the three Cleveland men. who were going fishing in the speedboat, escaped injury. BORGLUM CASES OFF Sculptor Not to Be Tried in Stone Mount^jn Controversy. ATLANTA, Ga„ June 9.—Three in dictments against Gutzon Borglum, the sculptor, in connection with the old con troversy over the Stone Mountain Con federate Memorial have been withdrawn. A nolle prosse order was recommended by Solicitor General Claude C. Smith, but no indicaticn was given as to why the recommendation was made. Borglum, originally employed to carve the figures on the memorial, became in volved in a disagreement with sponsors and was charged with malicious mis chief, larceny from the house and sim ple larceny after an alleged destruction cl the models. The bills of indictment first were re turned in 1927. They were later with drawn and then reinstated. Indictments against the sculptor’s assistant, J. G. Tucker, namedjjin two bills, likewise were dismissed. House Disagrees to Furlough Plan—Plans to Separate Appropriations. _i._ _» 'ontinued From First Page.) main feature made last-minute appeals to the Senate not to substitute the fur lough system, pointing out the House re jected the President's furlough method by a 2-to-l margin. They predicted the House would not accept it in confer ence and the economy bill would be wrecked in so far as any substantial saving in Government expendltudes is concerned. The sudden reversal of policy on sal ary reductions so near the final passage of the bill led to a wide range of esti mates by different Senators as to how much the bill as a whole will now save the Government, and also as to what may become of certain sections origin ally placed in the bill to conform to the flat pay cut and not eliminated after the furlough plan had been substituted. For instance, the Economy Commit tee, figuring that there would be a flat pay cut. had incorporated an auxiliary furlough paragraph which they said was designed only to avoid outright dis missal of employes in isolated cases where Congress might Inadvertently fail to appropriate enough money for exist ing personnel. Annual Leave Reduced. The clause recommended by the Economy Committee, permanently re ducing annual leave of employes from 30 to 15 days, is still in the bill, but the Moses furlough substitute for the fiat pay cut states that all annual leave is suspended during the fiscal year 1933. while the general lurlougn plan is in operation Whether this 15-dav annual leave clause is to become law is one of the questions remaining to be thrashed out in conference with the House. Even if it should be left in, however, it would be inoperative during the coming year if the furlough provision is retained in its present fo.-m. Tile Economy Committee had esti mated in its report that the reduction of annual leave with pay to 15 days permanently would result in a saving to the Government of $22,000,000. As it came from the Special Com mittee a W'eek ago, the economy bill was estimated to save $238,605,000. compared with estimated savings of approximately $52,000,000 under the House bill The figure given for the Senate bill included $121,050,000 to be saved by a flat 10 per cent pay cut on all employes. When the Senate several days ago adopted the Tydings amend ment. exempting those getting $1,000 a year or less from the flat pay cut. it reduced the estimated savings from salaries to about $116,500,000. Savings Estimates Vary. Some Senators estimated the fur lough plan, in lieu of the flat pay cut. would bring the savings from salaries down to $83,000,000. while others con tended it would save as much as $95. 000.000. The Senate also struck out estimated savings of $48,000,000 which would have resulted from curtailing certain veterans' allowances After debating these various esti mates. some Senators contended late yesterday that the bill, as it passed the IAST .-.DAYS toot HEALTH INSTITUTE Tomorrow and Saturday last days of our spe cial engagement of Mr. Stahlbrodt, an ex pert shoe fitter of Rochester, N. Y. \ If you've been having I trouble with your feet— and never seem to get fitted properly—come and gee this expert. l He is no “Doctor” or “Professor” — does not compete with chiropo dists or orthopedic sur geons. But he has a new method of Building up Shoes (inside)—that may give you immediate re lief. Senate, still carried economies aggre gating nearly *150,000,000, while others, on the Democratic side, argued the bill now saves not more than *120, 000,000. This latter figure appeared to be based on the assumption that. If the furlough plan Is sustained, there will be eliminated for the coming year the estimated saving of *22,000.000 from the reduction or annual leave to 15 days. In connection with the adoption of the furlough substitute, a number of Senators on the Democratic side de clared the President had "wrecked” the economy bill by trying to put through the furlough plan. Senators on the Republican side replied that the Presi dent had not discussed the question with them. Amendments Approved. A number of amendments were made to the economy bill In the closing hours of consideration in the Senate. One, offered by Chairman Jones, re stored the position of director of classi fication, which had previously been abolished, along with the Personnel Classification Board. The duties of the board would be transferred to the Civil Service Commission, and Senator Jones said he thought the position of direc tor of classification should be available to the commission. Another last-minute change was the rewriting of the clause dealing with pay for overtime, night work and work on Sundays and holidays. As rewritten, the bill will not take away the extra compensation of those who are em ployed regularly at night.
