Highest of all in Leavening Tower. Latest U. S. Govt Report
Chicago, April 7. The Tribune
has the following from Washing
ton: "One of , the justices of the
supreme court practically admitted,
after a consultation Saturday, that
tho abstract of the decision in the
income-tax case printed in the
Tribune was absolutely correct,
and tallied with the printed copies.
He alleged, however, that the ar
ticle was simply the work of a
clever observer, who had success
fully put two and two together and
arrived at a result practically cor
rect. Whether tho judges had
done anything to change the de
cision at their meeting Saturday
ho would not say, of course,
further than to admit that the
publication of the decision had be
come known to the judges.
