New York flrrnld llnmn, I
Washington, D. Auk. 3. I
All the present taxes, including ex
cess profits and high surtax rates, may
not bo repealed luitll January 1, 1922,
beeausc of the great need of the Gov
ernment for revenue during the cur
rent year, as outlined by Secretary of
the Treasury Mellon. This was learned
to-day from prominent members of
the House Ways and Means Commit
tee.
Previously it Vas planned to make
the repeal of the excess profits and the
reduction of the surtax rates retro
iivtive to January 1, 1921, thus reliev
ing business of this burden during Ine
present year. The new plan would
Slvc the Government about $500,000,000
move revenue, and, in the opinion of
House leaders, would obviate the ne
cessity of new taxes, taking Into con
plderatlon a probable large reduction in
estimated expenditures.
Should this be done it is probable
that the flat corporation income tax
would not lie increased from 10 to 15
per cent.
Meanwhile leaders In Congress are
seeking a way to force n bis cut in
estimated expenditures for the fiscal
air which Secretary of the Treasury
Mellon says \^lll reach $4,550,000,000
unless drastic action Is taken.
The difficulty lies in the fact that
must of the appropriations already have
been made for the expenditures esti
mated by Mr. Mellon.
Bnrnh Atm? at War Tout*.
As a stringent economy measure,
Senator Borah to-duy proposed that the
army be cut to 100.000 men. that Amer
ican troops In Germany be returned and
that the construction of nix battleships
bo stopped. Tills would save $100,000.
000. h% said. The Senator Introduced
a resolution directing a reduction of the
army.
Republican leader Mondoll gave as
surances that all requests for deficiency
appropriations will be cut to "the Irre
ducible minimum." and that every effort
v ili bo made to force reductions in ap
propriations already made. Leaders in
fact, indicate they will try to "out
budget" the new Budget Bureau. It
v as learned that the House Appropri
i Jons Committee will cut the request of
t:ie Shipping Hoard for $125,000,000 to
i'.bout $35,000,000.
Mr. Mondell is confident expenditures
i ould be cut so that the maximum
necessary from customs and Internal
revenue would be $3,500,000,000 instead
of $4,200,000,000, as given by Secretary
Mellon. Of the former amount the tariff
< ould yield $370,000,000, thus making
in ills opinion, a tax bill of about
130,000.000.
"The great problem is to get over the
hump of the present fiscal year," said
Mr. Mondell. "Mr. Mellon'* figures are
the outside limit and Include about
^900,000,000 to settle war obligations.
Personally 1 doubt this amount of
claims can be settled. Another trouble
is that the Government is paying all its
bills In cash and its debtors are asking
extensions of credit."
I.'rftp* Army find 'Nary Cut.
Senator Borah, analyzing possible
means of reducing expenditures, asserted
that cuts In the driny and navy afford
the only possible opportunities that will
lie st all conclusive, since they are the
source of our greatest expense.
He figured that a saving of about
$100,100,000 can be effected, of which
? I fiO.OOO.OOO would be in lowering the
army force, and $250,000,000 In aban
doning part of the battleship construc
tion. Me argued that the bombing 'tl
periments on the Virginia < 'apes dem
onstrWeil that- battleships now building
rre obsolete, or nearly so, believing that
greater protection would be afforded
through submarine and airplane con
struction.
Reductions In army nnd navy a! this

the T'nited State* in calling the confer

st least preventing an Increase. Unless
something of the sort Is done, be prophe

Why Krf|? Tronfia in f;eritfiiti j f
Both Senators Brandegee and Borah
Stated thev kiw no possible advantage
either to the I'nlted States or Kurope In
keeping the troops In Germany.
"To Increase taxation nt this 'line
seould he almost disaster and to fail to
reduce them trotild be deplorable." said
Senator Rorah. "I know of no way to re

tures, and we haxe no material sources

GERMANS, TO GET INTO U. S.,
SHIP FOR 1 CENT A MONTH
Secretary Davis Believes That They Are Permitted to
Land in This Country as Sailors and Then
Flee to Interior.
Washington, Aug. 5.?Numbers of
Germans are shipping at German ports
or. American bound vessels as seamen
;tt wages of one cent a month, Chair
man Lasker of the Shipping Board has
advised Secretary Davis in a letter
made public to-day. Secretary Davis
believes that the Germans are permit
ted to land in this country as seamen
and then flee to the interior.
Until a treaty is signed with Ger
many, it was explained, it will not be
legal for German citizens to enter the
United States.
The Secretary said he expected to
ask that a bill be introduced in Con
gress requiring the registration upon
arrival of all foreign seamen. There
are probably 40,000 Chinese in this
country without legal right to be here,
he added, as a result of the seamen's j
act, which permits foreign seamen to
land at American ports.
More than a thousand Assyrian
Christians, fleeing from persecution!"
by Mohammedans, arc on their way to
the United States on small sailing ves
sels, Secretary Davis said to-day. Ac
cording to information reaching the
Department of Labor, he added, they
are part of a party of 75,000 who start
ed to march from the interior of Per
sia to ports, 25,000 of whom died on
the way.
Those who survived boarded availa
ble vessels that were leaving for Japan
and the countries of Europe and Amer
ica. The thousand coming here, the
Secretary s?-id, will be far in excess of
the quota for Persia, against which
country they should be charged under
the percentage Immigration laws, but
he added that no decision had been
reached as to what would be done with
them.
Finds Statute to Cover Libel
on British Schooner.
3 MILE ZONE ABANDONED
Vessel Considered as a Violator
of Customs and Prohibi
tion Laws.
Special Despatch to Tub New To*k Hmiai.d. I
New York Herald Bureau. )
Washington. I?. C.. Aug. ?. '
The dry boundaries of the United
States were set twelve miles out at sea
to-day. The old three mile zone, bor
dering which booze running craft
; might scurry unmolested, became a
I thing of the past. j
j That momentous decision was reached
! by the L'nited States Attorney-Gen-1
j oral's office in giving authorization to
United States Attorney William Hay
, ward of New York to bring libel pro
I eeedings against the British schooner
Her.ry L. Marshall, seized by Coast
j Guard men off the Jersey snore.
For in searching for the law, and in
determining how far the law would
reach, the Attorney-General's offic^
came to the conclusion that liquor
cargo carrying would bo subject to a< -
tlons under sections of the revised
i statutes dealing with smuggling and
the transfer of contraband goods at
! sea within twelve miles of shore.
! The decision of the Government to
pi-ess the case against the Britisher
' came after some hours of doubt and
I onlv after Mr. Hay ward had laid his
rase fullv before Acting Attorney-Gen
eral Oof! and they had gone over the
! evidence In a thorough discussion.
Then it was announced that Mr. na>
I ward's investigation had ^hown that the
schooner had violated both the \ oletead
! UI1d the custom laws. The alleged smug
cling act violation, if upheld as grounds
i for checking the operations of rum run
! nirig craft, will put an end to the hopes
i of those American citizens who ueie
I .till hoping that real booze n?yy?
brought into the country.. '1 >? tjiree
mile limit, which used to be a so t 01
| joke, now appears to have been a sad
rating Attorney-General Ooff. untll
I receipt of Mr. Hayward's record of eU
deuce in the Marshall case appe.red to
bc in doubt as to the grounds fo. the
! seizure, and even expressed the opin
ion Informally that the action of the
Toast Guard captain appeared to have
! been of "douotrul legality." t.ater fa<ts, (
however, changed his attitude and he
I said It now seems clearly established

Sam Francisco, Aug-. 5.?An ationy
i mous letter was recciveo to-day by
Archbishop Hanna demanding $6,500
ransom for the Rev. Patrick E. Iles
l:n, Roman Catholic priest of Colma.
Father Heaiin ha* been missing since
Tuesday night, when he left his parish
house In answer to what was said to
be a summons to the deathbed of a
parishioner.
| Police details and sheriff posses
| were increased to-day in the hunt. The

priest was a captive in chains, held by
a personal enemy in a bootlegging cel
lar. it added that the captor was a
man armed with hand grenades, who
would asphyxiate the priest if the
j money wa-s not forthcoming.
Another pnrt of the letter, which was
turned over to the police, is said to have
threatened that the priest would be cre
mated In gasolene If the authorities at
tempted to breakiinto the eell^r.
Archbishop Hanna was directed to be
ready to send one man alone In an auto
mobile until he found a white line and
then to follow a white string until he
was instructed to hand over the $6,500.
Th?? note told Archbishop Hanna that
he would be informed by telephone when
to ?<t?rt.
Hundreds of men and boys have vol
unteered to join the posses. In automo

His Desire for Home Life.
FIRST RIFT CAME JULY 25
Marriage in 1016 Was Her

Lou Tel lege n, actor, lias begun suit
for separation from Miss Geraldine
Farrar, grand opera prima donna and
movie star, in the Supreme Court of
Westchester county. Harry N. Steln
feld. attorney for the actor, said last
night that Mr. Tellegen, among other
things, alleges the slnser deserted him.
Papers in the suit wei% served on Miss
farrar Thursday night, the lawyer
said, as she stepped out of an auto
mobile in front of her home, 20 West
Seventy-fourth street. This last state
ment, however, was denied by Alviu
Untermyer, Miss Farrar's attorney.
Mr. Tellegen be^an the suit, his law
yer said, only after he had tried un
successfully for eleven days to enter
his Seventy-fourth street home. The
door was barred against him, the locks
were changed, and. Mr. Steinfeld de
clared. servants peered through the
window blinds as the actor stood ring
ing the doorbell for as long as fifteen
and twenty minutes at a time. Mr.
Tellegen as a result has taken up tem
porary quarters at the Rltz-Carlton.
Locked Oat of Homr,
The first rift in the happiness of Mr.
I and Mrs. Lou Tellegen appeared July
! 25 Inst, it was learned. when a clerk
1 of the law firm of Gugv;enhcimer, Unter
! myer & Marshall. 120 Broadway, at
; torneys for the singer, appeared in Loner
Beach, where the actor had been spend
ing a few week*. The clerk handed a
letter to Mr. Tellegen. Jt suggested ho
: call at the offici-s of the Arm to dls
, cuss "certain differences thai. liare
: arisen between you ?nd herself tmean
I !ng Mrs. Tellegen)." The letter went ort
t to say that "under the circumstances
i you are not in the meantime to enter
' Mrs. Tellegen's house." The actor also
was advised that If he would let his
wife lenow what his address would be
i "Mrs. Tellegen will forward your wear
; ing apparel and other possessions."
i Instead of going to see Mr. I'nter
myer, whose name Is said to have been
I signed to the letter. Mr. Tellegen, his
lewyer states, went direct to his
Seventy-fourth street home. As he
walked up the steps he took his key
from his pocket and started to insert
it into the lock, but it wouM not go in.
The lock on the door had been changed.
The actor then rang the bell and waited.
Ten, fifteen minutes passed but there
was no response. Glancing at the win
dows. Mr. Steinfeld says, the actor could
see his servants peering through the
blinds.
Mr. Tellegen went to a telephone and
called up the house on his wife's prl
^ite telephone. One of the servants
answered the wire. "No. Mme. Farrar Is
not at home," was the rfpljr the actor
i? said to have received. He then went
back to the house and tried the doorbjll
j once more, but to no avail.
Waited Eleven Day*.
Mr. Strlnfeld is authority for the .state
ment that his client followed this pro
cedure for eleven days?that Is. from th>*
afternoon of July 25 to Thursday?with
: out ever getting so much as beyond the
top step of the stoop. Mr. Tellegen then
( Piled on his lawyer and asked that th^
suit be instituted. Other allegations are
1 set up in the complaint, the lawyer ad
mitted. than the chargc of desertion.
"All I will tell you now is that a suit
has been begutj," Mr. Steinfeld said last
night. "Other matters will come out in
the course of time."
The "other matters" Mr. Steinfeld re
fers to are sai l to concern the home life
of Mr. and Mrs. Tellegen, and particu
larly the desire of the actor for a quiet
!>ome. which. It is said, he found to be
In conflict with the professional asplra
' tions of his wife.
Process servers took up a position oiH
: side the home of Miss Farrar Thursday
evening while she was out for an auto
mobile ride. They waited threi; hours
unttl ."he returned, and as the singer
al.ghtid from the car the summons and
complaint was thrust Into her hand
i upon an admission of Identity, accord

Candy Demand in Dry Era
FaiU, So Does This Firm
JQOSTON, Aug. 5.?The fact
that people are not eating so
mueh candy now as they did dur
ing the war was one of the rea
sons ascribed for the failure of
the Boston Confectionery Com
pany, which filed a petition in
bankruptcy to-day, with liabili
ties of more than $800,000.
Henry J. Wilson, counsel for
the company, said that the in
creased demand for candy which
followed the advent of prohibi
tion had not continued. The
company's assets, consisting of
machinery, stock in trade and
open accounts, were listed as
$660,885.

II-l, Smallest Lighter Than

DODGES ALL PIRSUEHS
Tired After Long Trip. It
Makes Perfect Landing on a
Farm at Scarsdale.
j The pony blimp H-l, the smallest
! lighter than air craft in the United
State* Navy registry, and mean ui
! inverse proportion to her size, yester
day afternoon while flying over Ja
maica Bay near the Rockaway Naval
Air Station suddenly developed a
| streak of temperament.
The first result of the H-l's tantrum
was that one officer and two men who
had the temerity to try to fly her were '
flung into the fragrant marshes of
Barren Inland. The second result was
that everything that floats or flies in
the Third Naval district wa? ordered
1 out to grab the runaway blimp, head
ing north, south, east or w?>st, or some
where between these points. And the
climax came when the blimp, after
establishing a new no-ma/i duration
, flight record of about fifty miles, gave
-?ome residents of Scarsdale, N. V., an
opportunity to drag her, uninjured, out
j of the sky before any of the navy men
pursuing on sea. air or land could
reach her.
