By BOB MONROE Associated Press Writer NEW YORK (AP) - City investigators, working on the direct orders of Mayor John V. Lindsay, begin today a painstaking probe into all matters dealt with by former mayoral aide James L. Marcus, accused with a Cosa Nostra figure in a city contract kickback scheme. Marcus and ''ve other men, including labor racketeer Antonio "Tony Ducks" Corallo, were arrested Monday in \viiat one city official described as the most spectacular city scandal since the Seabury investigation of the early 1930's that led to the resignation of Mayor James J. Walker. According to the federal grand jury indictment, Marcus allegedly pocketed $16,000 of a $40,000 kickback in the award of an $800,000 city reservoir cleaning contract while serving as commissioner of water supply, liked and fastest rising young men in the Republican mayor's two-year-old administration. The defendants, each charged with conspiring to violate federal antiracketeering laws, face a maximum penally upon conviction of five years in federal prison and a $10,000 fine. At their arraignment, federal Judge Constance Baker Motley set bail of $10,000 for Corallo but released the others without bond for a hearing Dec. 28. Marcus, 37, refused to comment to newsmen. The oftiers indicted were Henry Fried, 60, head of S.T. Grand and Co., and a prominent New York horse breeder; Herbert Itkin, 41, a New York City labor lawyer and a law associate, Charles Rappaporl, 30; and Daniel Motto, 57, of Greenwich Conn., president of New York Local 350, Bakery Workers Union.
