Associations Also    SI7,000,000 for the State Start Again Today—Business Men See    Treasury Trude Revival    The treasury of this county stands -  I    to be enriched by two million dollars, I as a result of the decision of the I United States Supreme Court, which I yesterday denied executors of the I John T. Dorrance estate a review of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling that estate taxes of $17,000,000 must be paid to this state. The tax litigation has extended over a long period, it being claimed by state officials that the late John T. Dorrance was a legal resident of Radnor township, thus county, while the executors claimed he was a bona fide resident of New Jersey. Following the death of Mr. Dorrance, Register of Wills George E. Hill made an appraisement for the county, the four mill tax on the estate amounting to approximately $400,000 yearly or $2,000,000 for the five year period. It is expected the Board of Assessment and Revision of Taxes will take immediate steps to recover this sum. G. Harmon Webb, Media attorney, izing Sunday Sports, Now Seems Dead Passed Ixnver Body Favorably 127 to 75; Other Assembly News Limited Amount of Scrip in Chester Recalled For Instant Cashing or Depositing—Bankers Praise Confidence Evidenced by Local Citizens During Past Holiday—Clerks Active in Opening Hours All Chester banks opened for normal functions this morning. This happy news was received by thousands of patrons and business men with unconcealed glee, and the paralysis which enveloped the hanking service here through the state and national holidays has been ended. At the same time, all Chester scrip was called in. Holders are urged to cash the certificates or deposit them, at any local hank. All building and loan associations resumed business today. No excitement attended the opening this morning, though there were unusually large numbers of patrons in the bank lobbies. The depositors, it may be said with satisfaction, greatly outnumbered those who desired to make withdrawals and in the first two hours, many thousands of dollars had been placed on account. T h e banks—Chester-Cambridge Bank and Trust Company, First National Bank, Delaware County National Bank, Delaware County Trust Company, Pennsylvania Title arid Trust Company, and local branches— anticipated no trouble whatever for the first day. The private bank of Frank De Furia. on West Third street, also was opened. The reason* for this was found in the amazing wave of confidence which has swept the city since the bank holiday was first proclaimed. Everyone soon realized the drastic procedure was for the common good and that no one bank here was in any danger of not being able to open when the holiday ended. This confidence greatly encouraged the bankers. In fact, a reflection of this was found in the small amount of scrip that was issued on Saturday for payrolls only. Yesterday the banks, pursuing restricted service in making change and other duties, used currency and as a result, a comparatively small amount of scrip is in circulation. Yesterday a $30 000 payroll for Chester teachers and janitors was met at the Delaware County National Cash or Deposit Your Local Scrip, Bankers Urge Chester's experience with scrip is past history. Issued on Saturday morning last, for the purpose of making up payrolls, the certificates were recalled this morning by the Chester Clearing House Association. The banks urged all holders to cash the certificates immediately or deposit them to their account. This swift action is believed to have set a record for the scant time scrip was used in a community of this size. How They Voted On Sports Bill HARRISBURG.

TO ASK MUNITIONS i VHI ARGO WASHINGTON, March 14 (UP) The Stat" Department ha: informed Great Britain that President Roosevelt intends soon to ask Congress for authority to lay down embargoes on munition shipments from the United States in cooperation with other powers. .Stimulated by President Roosevelt's message asking for legaliza-tion of .> . per cent. beer. brewers throughout the nation prepared Lain> for manufacture and delivery ‘‘within forty-eight hours after the bill is signed.” Rapid congress Iona I action, us forecast in Washington, presented a problem lo many states, where hurried efforts were made to bring sectional laws into conformity with the proposed federal statute.

The group, which has not yet been formally elected by the House, later will confirm its favorable report. Senate leaders pledged fastest possible consideration in that branch after the pending economy hill is passed. Legalization of I)row before the end of the week was a distinct possibility. It would be on tap as soon after that as breweries could turn it out and states arranged to supervise its sale.
