Judge Tiffany in Constitutional Law, says: "Money is the sovereign authority impressed on that which is capable of taking and retaining the impression. That upon which upon bug x/w«*w% j the coin may be metal, parchment or paper. The value is in the the stamp is placed is called coin; o paper. T stamp hnd not in the metal or ma- terial." The fact that the stamp makes the money has been recognized since the days of Aristotle, who said that money existed not by na- ture but by law. On the testimony oí Thomas Barring, (as appears in an article on money in the Ameri- can Cyclopaedia) it was found im- possible during the crisis of 1847 in London, to raise ny money whatever on a sum of ;£60,000 of silver, and in 1864 in Calcutta, during a similar crisis, it was im- possible to raise a rupee on ^20,- 000 of gold.

Don't put in our platform, judge what does not pro- perly belong there. ******* But you betray the same wan t of informations respecting the sub- treasury scheme. You might say that as one of the means of "in- creasing the volume of circulating money" "this new or third party noses that the United States loan money at the rate of not exceeding 2 per cent per annum on the deposit by the people of their product in warehouses provided for the purpose." Now we do not propose that the government shall issue money on "farm products," but on certain "imperishable farm products," exportable products whose prices in gold are fixed in Liverpool and Lon- don. You see the difference no doubt. Not potatoes and cabbagge, but wheat and cotton, the pri...

The general government would not be expected to purchase strict- ly state lines, and in entering upon the policy ot acquiring the owner- ship ot interstate railways it ought doubtless to proceed cautiously. A test of the policy might be made in the case of the Pacific roads, which might be acquired both for this purpose as well as to protect the government against traudulent practices of these great corpora- tions in the future.

A sum of money which a borrower pays a lender for the use of his money, considered in the light of statutory enact- ments—but in reality a sort of blackmail which money mongers levy upon commerce. It is for bidden by divine law, but as it is a very pleasant and profitable em- ployment to the money mongers that fact is not regarded as a seri- oes hinderdnce. Banks: Institutions which live and flourish upon the interest of of what they owe, through the is- suance of bank notes; and upon the interest which they derive from loaning other people's ("deposits") money. Take from these two sources of income and they would speedily retire from the business. Bondholders: A highly respect- able class of people, whom people support with ass-like pat- ience, by promptly and regularly paying them interest money upon untaxed government bonds. Many simple minded persons indulge the idea that said bondholders very patriotically saved...

Even this early in the discuss- ion of the railroad problem, it is begining to dawn upon the aver- age investigator's mind, that rail- ways coatrolled through a railway commission will ultimately prove a failure. Controll means an at- tempt by acts of congress and of State legislatures to create com- missions empowered to fix and maintain schedules' of rates and tolls. Already these methods have been conclusively demonstra- ted to be impracticable. The peo- ple are finding out that the courts have emphatically deci l< d ihat neither congress nor states by leg- islation or commission, can pro- vide for or put into operation any schedule of rates or tolls to bind a railroad, which cannot be re- strained by injunction, and de- clared void by either federal or state courts.
