upheld the right o( the Alaska leg
islature to levy n tax on the oil and
other proddcU of the herring bus
iness as manufactured at Killlsnoo
by the Alaska Salt Klsh and Uy
Products Company.
The ease was one In which the
company sued Territorial Treasurer
Wr.istein (>. Smith for the recovery
of tax money collected from them on
the products of their plant. They
claimed that the tax was exccMlve
and was placed for the purpose of
discriminating against them in the
use of herring to make oil and guano
as against herring that are packed
for food. The trial went through all
the various courts and last week
reached the highest court In the
country, with Attorney Geucrol J.C.
Murphy representing the Territory
and Mayor K. E. Robertson of Ju
ueau the by-products company.
It was said that both lawyers pre
sented clever arguments in support
of briefs that were submitted In the
case but that Mr. Murphy won out
when the decision was given.
