Chicago, Feb. 25.- In the case brought by Marshall Field & Co. to test the legality of the United States revenue law, Judge Blodgett yesterday decided in favor of the government. The case will be taken to the supreme court. The judge simply affirmed the decisión of the appraisers, and the decisión was short. He said that he was much impressed by the argumente o the attorneys for the appellantj but it was not the policy of his court to interfere with the present tariff rates, owing to the trouble it would cause. Moreover the supreme court was the plae where final decisión must be made, and he would allow an appeal. The appeal will be taken iminediately.
