Hand at New York.
The brief also declares It Is not
unlawful for vessels to bring their
ship stores nf liquor into American
territorial waters. In this respect the
position taken by the Mercantile Ma
rine Is similar to that set forth by
the foreign shipping concerns in a
brief filed recently with the court
