STRIKERS SEEK AID
OF TUGBOAT MEN
Marine Engineers Will Ask
Owners if Union Contract
Is Not Violated.
CREWS LOATH TO QUIT
500 Harbor Craft and 3,000
Men Would Be Affected
by Proposed Walkout.
LONG FIGHT PREDICTED
Frotest Made to Hoover
Against Hiring of Green En
gineers.
The next move In the attempt of the
marine workers to make their strike
mora effective by gaining- the support
of the tugboat engineers and crews
will be made at 10 o'clock this morn
ing, when union leaders will go to the
New York Towboat Exchange, 11
Broadway, and ask the owners to call
a meeting of the arbitration commit
tee to decide whether the men ehould
be required under their contracts to
handle "unfair" shipping.
The arbitration committee will be
asked to permit the men "not to dock,
undock, transport, supply steam or in
any way aid in the operation of unfair
steamships." Union officials said they
doubted If the tugboat owners would
agree to that demand. In the event of
the expected refusal. It was announced,
"the men will know what to do." They
will not strike, but they will be or
dered to "resign" rather than aid In
the clearance of "unfair" ships.
Events of the last week have shown
that the tugboat men do not take kindly
to breaking their contracts, which run
until January 1 of next year. There Is
a clause ln'the contracts, however, which I
provider for arbitration of certain dlf- j
fcrences, and it Is to this clause that the I
strikers have pinned their hopea The j
committee which will call upon the tug- j
boat owners this morning is made up J
of Thomas B. Healey, Edward Snyder |
and Thomas Sheehan.
Fear I.ower Wage Scale.
Growing impatient with the failure of j
the tugboat engineers to accede readily
to his requests that they rpfuse to lian- ;
die "unfair" ships. Mr. Healey called a j
meeting of their representatives yester
day afternoon at 116 Park place and told (
them plainly that efforts to tie up the j
harbor could be only partially success- j
ful as long as they assisted ships to |
move and thus aided in breaking the
strike.
The meeting lasted three hours and
was marked by a noticeable lack of en
thusiasm on the part of the tug men.
Borne of them told Mr. Healey in effect:
"If we break our agreement witli the
owners they can present a now wage
scale which, in view of the present de
cline in shipping and oversupply of
labor, will be considerably lower than
the old one. Also. It Is open to question
whether enougli of our men would obef
the strike call to make It effective."
It finally was agreed to appeal to the
owners first and tell them that they
should not be expected to aid In break
ing the strike of other union men. The
same "ultimatum." as It was termed,
will be presented to the Independent
operators outside of the Towboat Ex
change. which number about twenty-six.
There are about 500 tugboats In the
harbor, Including steam lighters. Be
tween 2.500 and 3,000 men are employed
on them. Mr. Healey said he presumed
that, as in previous decisions of all the
marine workers, "the other ports will
follow the lead of New York." He added
that there was no doubt that the tug
boat engineers, no matter what the out
come of the conference this morning,
will refuse to handle ships manned by
strikebreakers.
Prolancrd Flatat Predicted.
Mr. Healey .asked to aunt up the
progress of the strike, .said: "We have
had very Rood reports so fur. All the
ports on the Atlatlce, Pacific and (itilf
eoaats that have sent In reports within
the last twenty-four hours have been
optimistic. At least the owners are not
gaining anything."
Representatives of the steamships
s-ild that while --hipping was light end
few ships were getting out, it was du>
quite as much to trade depression ami
freight conditions as to the strike, and
that they wer. having no trouble in sup
plying men for all vescls which were
ready to sail. The strike apparently has
settled down now to h conflict of indefi
nite length and which must run for some
time before It will be apparent that
either side has won a decisive victory.
The marine engineers sent a telegram
to Secretary of t'ommerce Hoover last
night protesting against the employment
of Inexperienced men on ships. While
all marine engineers must have Iecenaes,
and are therefore supposed to be compe
tent, the union claims they are per
mitted to take on men who have never
b' en et, board a ship before and w hose

The local authorities did most of the
w<ork there. The State police were out
to capture one or two of the big: auto
mobiles that svco reputed to fetch brer
from Pennsylvania every night. Rut
there was no luck of that sort. The
beer runners had beer, warned or were
taking a night off.
Chief Morehead led his men to I^eo
Markty's, Barney Schwartz's, Tony Xo
wak's, Ed Fisher's, Ruddy Dletz's, LouiM
Koenlg's, Joe Kobe's, ^tilco Sarro's and
Frank Calabara's. arresting each of the
mentioned proprietors and ransacking
their establishments. For some reason
they expected trouble at Calabara's, but
whoever was thinking of starting any
thing took a good look at the police, the
troopers, the sheriffs and the detectives,
and decided.' it was not the time to get
abusive.
"This Is one of the most popnlar places
in the county," said Morehead. Indicat
ing Calabara's. "You see folks coming
out of this place with the empty bottle
In their teeth. Hot stuff! There was
one Wop who drank a couple of bolts of
stuff here and came out with his hat
on Are. He Jumped Into the Delaware
River to cool off and we haven't seen
him since. Yeh, hot stuff!
"Soakum Sullivan, our heavyweight
scrapper, trained on a bottle of stuff he
got somewhere along the river front
here, and instead of going down to Mki
dletown to fight a guy named Xrug he
was matohed with, kept on travelling
and enlisted in the Polisti army. Mose
of the trouble you arc hoarlng about In
Poland now is nothing but Soakum.
And before this stuff began to appear In
Orange county Soakum was as quiet a
guy as you'd meet anywhere."
Out of Calabora'e place they took 10
cases of home brew, 6 quarts of whiskey.
2 gallons of hard cider, 10 gallons of
quick wine, 9 bottles labelled "-Bitters,"
a large jug of rum and sundry bottles '
proclaiming themselves to contain cor- j
dial, horehound, spirits of alcohol and
the like.
There were three barrels of cider and
much material for the making of beer
located In Tony Xowak's. and Barney
Schwartz was likewise ready to turn out
all the beer he'd need for several weeks.
The crowd of citizenry became so large
that the police had to leave off raiding
every now and then to charge the throng
that the confusion be reduced.
With the exception of Dowe and Bal
mer, the arrested proprietors of the
raided places had quick hearings before
Police Justice Bevans, who held them
all in $500 bail for arraignments on
Tuesday. Dowo and Balmer were taken
to Deer Park for hearings, inasmuch as
they held forth outside of town.

MILLER TO APPOINT
NEW PRISONS HEAD
,Katti?ran Is Expected Soon to
Retire on Account of
III Health.
Gov. MPler Is expected to tako up
at an early date the question of ap
pointing-a new Superintendent of Prisons
to succeed Charles F. Rattlgan, Demo
crat. named by Gov. Smith In February,
1919.
Jlr. Rattlgan, Derrvacratlc leader In
Auburn and Warden In Auburn Prlstn
for four years, has been In ill health far
many months. While he has not re
signed, It has been the understanding
since Gov. filler took office that Mr.
Rattlgan was ready to step out whenever
the Executive wished to make a change.
The Governor has boon asked fre
quently whether he was considering a
change In the management of this big
State department, and has answered It
might come a little later, but not Im
mediately. While he has been engrossed
In the work of tho'thlrty day period, act
ing on hundreds of bills passed by the
Legislature, the Executive has given
little attention to reorganizing tho Prison
Department. <
With that big task off his hands the
Governor will turn to the work he has
laid down for the summer, an Important
feature of which Is revamping depart
ments consolidating bureaus and cut
ting expenses wherever possible. One
of the first to come under the Executive
hand will be the Prison Department,
Vhere, according to unofficial geports,
there Is lax management.
Two names of candidates for the
position of Superintendent have been
heard In recent discussion of the prob
able appointment. These are George W.
Franklin of Troy, formerly Superin
tendent and now secretary of the Re
publican State Committee, nnd George
W. Renham, formerly Warden of Auburn
Prison, and now Republican leader of
Cayuga. Mi-. Franklin is the author of
numerous articles on prison conditions
and reforms which have attracted much
attention.

says: "TMy great-grandfather, Isaac
'""ox, owned 1,000 acres of land where
Mew York city now stands and where
Wall street is. This land was leased
for nlnet.v-nlne years. Mow. the said
lease having expired, the great-great
grandchildren have became heirs to this
estate. The information T would lil.o

this deed. J would greatly appreciate
any Information you could give as to
how to proceed to claim our Inherit

LAST LEGISLATURE
PRAISED BT MILLER
Record for Constructive
Work Long Will Stand,
He Asserts.
DEVOTION TO PUBLIC
Order, Efficiency and Econ-J
oray Restored, the Gover- ,
nor Says.
SPECIFIC ACTS CITED
More Scientific Preparation of
Future Budgets Fore
seen.
Gov. Nathan L. Miller, In a signed
statement prepared before he left Al
bany for a fortnight's vacation and
released for publication to-day, reviews
the work of the last session of the
Legislature and fizids that for "con
structive work and earnest devotion
to the public Interest" the record has
not been equalled In many years. It
will long stand, the Governor says, as
an example to future Legislatures.
The Governor places first In Import
tance the restoration of "order, effi
ciency and economy In the public ad
ministration." He mentions the saving
of $18,00,000 In the State budget, as
compared with last year, and adds that
he does not expect deficiencies to be
created during the current year. As
a result of legislation passed during
the session the Governor says he ex
pects a more efficient administration
of the tax laws, of the Department of
Agriculture and of the industrial de
partment of the State government.
He expects In the future to see a more
scientific preparation of the budget
through cooperation between the execu
tive and administrative brancb.es of the
government and regards the reorgani
zation of the Tubllc Service Commission
and the creation of a Joint port authority
as constructive measures whose ultimate
benefits cannot be estimated.
In closing, the Governor says:
"Any one of the foregoing achieve
ments would have Justified the session
of the Legislature Just closed, but It
passed many other constructive acta
Needful Improvements were made in the
education law. the banking law, the In
surance law, the corporation laws and
the highway law, and a completed and
connected system of State highways was
at last and. I trust, finally provided for.
"An adequate trespadb law was passed
to protect private property.
"The law requiring: the wasteful and
useless publication of the session laws
was repealed by an act effective Janu
ary 1, 1922, an accomplishment several
times unsuccessfully attempted.
"A constructive act to prevent fraudu
lent practices in the sale of securities
was enacted.
"The so-cal?d rent laws were made
more workable.
"Provision was made for the revision
I of the New York city charter, a work too
I long delayed.
"Wise provision was made for the dls
| tributlon of the soldiers' bonus.
"For the first time after twenty years
of effort a definite policy was adopted
| and definite provision was made for the
, development in the public interest of the
I State's potential water powers.
"Many other useful measures too nu
merous to mention in this summary were
passed, and while some bills did not re
ceive executive approval a careful sur
vey of the entire legislation of the ses
sion warrants the statement that the
Legislature was animated throughout Its
session by the single purpose to serve
the public Interest.
I "The results indicated were made pos
sible "only by cordial cooperation be
tween the legislative and executive
branches of the government, each keep
ing within its own sphere,-and I desire
to assign to the Legislature the full |
measure of the credit due It for its ac
complishment."
