CUTS AQUEDUCT ASSESSMENTS Decision of Justice Mills May Effect Many West- Chester Towns. HOLDS VOMERS ITEM IS ILLEGAL A decision by Juetice Isaac N, Mills banded down o n Friday, holding illegal a n assessmen t of $16,- 776,300 by Yonkers against New York City aqueduct i s held t o be a n im­ portant on e not only In Yonkers but in al l of tie towns In Westchester County where th e aqueduct an d res­ ervoir property is located. The action of New York City against Yonkers assessors relative to th e as­ sessment against the construction oa th e HUIvIew reservoir has been watch­ ed with a great deal of Interest by th e nineteen towns is th e county In practically all if which Is a vast amount of assessable values of aque­ duc t construction. The work is going on constant!?\ and th e assessments are over $13,- 000,000 in these towns no w but un­ der the decision that Justice Mills makes th e construction work will *}& •exempt. Ia th e Town of North Castle this means a severe reduction to tie as ­ sessments eventually if th e Yonkers case is used as a precedent since Valhalla, In th e Town of North Cas­ tle, Is th e site of th e big Kenslco Reservoir and dam while in the Town : of Greenburgh, between Ellmsford an d IDaet/yleTV is the big Alter bod for th e 'Aqueduct. ; The '.aetkin, wad brqugh\trbV x Nfew jessoXB whic h Is? AaasS^p^op cfe H Neville, Daniel W. frfrroU ft saerli ederlck T. BreHhock and John J« hr. '.' Th e plaintiffs claimed that the aque­ duct- construction, most of which will be underground was unjust and that the Item of $15,776,300 should b e stricken from tie rolls. Justice Mills holds th e assessment .void and says th e solution- depends' jon whether or no t th e general t^X' act of 1909 repeals th e provisions of the New York City charter which exempts aqueduct property in other t counties from taxation. He says &e Appellate Court ha s held th e property 1';' io b e exempt an d that he follows the °-rultng of that court. Justice Mills also sets forth that when a e a state senator 13 1901 he 'J represented th e Interests o f counties ': outside of New York a fair agreement was made In tie adjustment of such taxation a t that time. TRANSPORTS PRISONERS IN AUTOMOBILES. i SURPRISED BROTHER AFTER ABSENCE OF 37 YEARS. Followed Horace Greeley's Advice in 1877 and Prospered in the i West. While Samuel P. Coite wa s sitting on hia veranda In White Plains Sun­ day evening, enjoying a Porto Rico perfecto, a stronger approached. \Excuse mej/' sadd the a tranter, \bat la this No. 16 Hillside Avenue?\ \It is,\ Mr. Coite replied, whoro- upon the stranger proceeded up on the veranda, helped himself-to a xiialr, an d chatted for half a n hour New System of Conveying Con­ victed Men From New York City to Sing Sing Institution. Sheriff Griffenhagen of No w York County last week tried out a plan of transporting his prisoners from th e Tombs t o Sing Sing Prison by auto bus, and s o well pleased i s he with the project that ho will try t o make the ne w arrangement permanent. Recently complaints were made by the Osslnlng authorities that prisoners were paraded from the railroad station to th e prison and that th e curious made th e thing objectionable. Th e auto bus will eliminate much of this and the Sheriff say s the ne w arrange­ ment i s cheaper. An automobile concern interested in the Sheriff's plan furnished tho vutv for th e trip. -It wa s a cage of steel with room for fourteen prisoners and four guards. Th e conveyance was backed Into tho Tombs yard a t 9.46 o'clock a. m., and wont out a little later with th e load of prisoners^ Four prisoners, handcuffed together, sa t on each of th e tw o long seats. Th e cage .was lockod with a heavy padlock and In . a separate compartment rode Dep­ uty Sheriff Miller -and three guards, {n\--lu> own- autpmopfja.* •- - ' [ v A brief stop wa s nja$j&HBadnuar- 'jters, where\ tho fingerprints and Ber- tillon measurements were taken, an d then began an uninterrupted run t o |Slng Sing, tho Sheriff loading th e wa y in his car. Tho direct route to Sing Sing Is about forty-two miles from Headquarters, but thore wa s on e de­ tour which made tho total distance forty-eight miles. It required Just tw o hours and five minutes to g o from' Police Headquarters to Sing Sing. Th e best estimate that th e Sheriff had made wa s tw o and a half hours. Sheriff Qriffenhagen said \This i s what I call practical transportation of prisoners. It i s safe and sano and Just twlco a s choap a s the service w c are now maintaining. In m y budget next month I will Include a n itom of $2,400 for a special automobile bus, Tho bus I want will bo a little larger hnn the one w e used today, big enough to transport twenty prisoners at on o time.
