Secretary Hughes was requested
by the treasury to communicate no

While the position adopted by the
administration appeared to leave no
road for a backward step, it seemed
certain that representations will come
from some foreign governments who
may regard the court's interpretation
of the law as an infringement of their
rights. Secretary Hughes was said
to regard the position of the American
government as sound and with plenty
of precedents establishing the rights
which it has assumed. There were,
on the other hand, some government
officials who believed the . United
