CANNERIES TAX IS UPHELD
Federal Court in Alaska Sustains
JUNEAU. Alaska. Dec. 24. United
States District Judire Jennings has
upheld the acts of the Territorial Leg
islature in 1913 and 1915, imposing
taxes on all salmon canneries In Alaska,
and assessed judgment against the
Alaska Salmon Company amounting to
$5000. The company will appeal to the
United States Circuit Court of Appeals.
Judge Jennings ruled that "compli
ance with all the conditions and pay
ment of license fees imposed by Con
gress does not release the defendant
from payment of license taxes imposed
by acts of the- Alaska Legislature."
If Judge Jennings' decision is upheld
the territory will realize a large sum
of money in back taxes from salmon
The act of the Alaska Legislature
upheld by Judge Jennings today was
severely criticised by Secretary of
Commerce Redfield in his annual re
port recently issued.
