When a government issues Its cer tificates stamped with the "money" symbol, "and makes those certificates express truly the quantity of value actually received in exchange for them by that government, and makes them transferrable by delivery, an J conclusive procf of payment, and a peremptory - eipt by "tender" against tax levies "In the public of fices" and against judgments "in the courts," that government does there by "coin" its"money"-and in thus exercising the "power to coin money" it exercises the power of taxation. A certificate thus endowed has pow er to perform every beneficial service for man "in the public offices and in the caurts of the United States" tnat a gold coin can perform no matter how flimsy may be the material upon which it is coined. Ou.slde of those offices and courts, neither a gold coin nor any other, thing has any power as a conclusive proof of payment, as a receipt by its tender, except as that power is con ferred upon it by statute.' Outside of the satisfaction by tender, or tax lev ies and judgments "in the public offi ces and in the courts," every 'payment of obligation of every nature is a voluntary transaction and rests, like exchanges, upon the agrement of, the parties. And let it be noted that this stat utory power to perform a statutory service - beneficial to men, constitutes the utility ..ad the only util ity of "coin," and is the power men strugle to obtain dominion over; and the resulting expenditure of human energy in that competitive struggle for their possession, produces the force . A demand for. coin which maintains their statutory "valuation." But when such certi-cates, whether stamped as a damnable and iniquit ous falsehood upon some favorite's private gold (for which government received nothing) or a; a truthful ac knowledgement of the receipt by the government of the quantity of value expressed upon its face (as on - a "greenback"), are presented to the custodian of a tax levy or a judgment, "in the public offices and in the courts," such "tender" conclusively proves that payment of the tax levy or judgment had already been once made, and, without any agreement with anybody, satisfies and cancels the claim. Unlike exchanges and vol untary payments it does not rest upon agreement or contract. It is not coins, nor diamonds, nor silver, nor gold, which thus pays these claims. The tender of such certificates in those two places , is the authorita tive and conclusive declaration of the government that the bearer had al ready paid that amount to the gov ernment as taxes in advance of any tax levy; and whether tax levy or judgment, that government is its cus todian, and having already received from the bearer the q .antity of value expressed, compels the creditor to ac cept the means of satisfying tax lev ies or nothing in t'ae case of the judgment; and accepts it as a receipt and conclusive proof of payment in the case of the t-.x levy. Outside the public offices and courts the power of "tender" does not ex ist. In those two places its power is absolute and arbitrary. A certificate of the character we are dealing with i. the only real coin. It is a mere question cf evidence, over the sufficiency of which the power of government is absolute. It is a con clusive receipt for "value," presumed to have been paid by the bearer in taxes advanced to government in its hour of need. . Every litigant who goes Into court submits himself to its jurisdiction and is compelled to accept its ad-judication-ror nothing. The govern ment having by statute endowed its certificates of advance payment of taxes with exclusive power to per form a' beneficial statutory service for man, (the performance of which is ur gent and universally required by stat ute, and which is likewise beneficial to the government), assumes the right to compel those, " ose claims it en forces, to accept those "coins" as a substitute and in satisfaction for their claims, in return for compelling the debtor to so satisfy them. And this is not inequitable, because the creditor will sorely need those cer tificates called "coin," as- the only means of securing deliverance from his own obligation to meet tax levies and judgments; or else the need of others for them, for that inevitable service, will enable him to obtain in exchange for them a quantity of util ity of a valuation equal to that ex pressed in. his judgment i Government has no right to compel people in their dealings with each other to accept such certificates in exchange for their services or valuable commodities. But in deal ings between the government and the people this is always done; as where it has conscripted men to form an army, paying them with such certifi cates, and using that army to forcibly impress needed commodities which, are paid for by the same means. But whatever governments may d. upon their own account, and for their own advantage, it is not within the power of government to extend the power of "tender" so as to compel one private person, when dealing with another (outside of public offices and courts), to perform beneficial service or deliver valuxble commodities in exchange for such certificates or "coin." But - wherever governmental power is supreme, as it is both "in the public offices" and "in the courts," there it is competent for that govern ment to make such certificates or "coin" conclusive proof of payment, and also to compel their "tender" as the only means of making that proof. x When the United States stamps tho talismanic words, "United States of America Ten Dollars," and declares by statute that all taxpayers and judg ment debtors shall use that, and noth ing else, as the only means of freeing themselves from the burdens of tax levies and judgments, by "tendering" It "in the public ofilces and in the courts;" and on the other hand de clares such tender shall be sufficient proof that they h a v e been paid; these acts being performed in tin public offices and in the courts are within the jurisdiction of a sovereign government We arrive, then, where we can per ceive that the American gold eagle has exactly two powers and nc oth ers. It can perform no office except as a peremptory receipt, 'by its "ten der," in the public offices and courts, as conclusive proof of payment prev iously made by its bearer. It has no authority or power elsewhere. It does not pay anything; it simply proves conclusively that payment had al ready been made. The attempts of economists to ac count for the -"value" of coin excite pity. . John Stuart Mill, smothered by the received rubbish, gives the fol lowing explanation: "As the whole of the goods in th3 market compose the demand for mon ey, so the whole of the money con stitutes the demand for the goods. The money and the goods are seeking each other for the purpose of being exchanged. They are reciprocally sup ply and demand to one another." Jfol. Ec, p. 27. "So that the value of money, other things being the same, varies in versely as Its quantity; every increase of quantity lowering the value and every diminution raising it in a ratio exactly . equivalent This." it must be observed, is a property peculiar to money." Id, p. 30. Absurdity could go no further. The proposition that inert "goods on the market" could "compose the de mand for money" is such a pre posterous statement that we are as tonished to find it seriously put forth by so distinguisned a man as Mill. "So the whole of the money consti tutes the demand for the goods." If you pile all the coin and all the goods in the United States up in two heaps, while all the inhabitants betake them selves to distant countries, would the coin and goods constitute the force of demand for each other? It is clear that Man is the active factor, and that it is the expenditure of his energy in efforts directed to ob tain exclusive possession of things in the adverse . possession of others unose efforts being restrained from taking the form of violence) which produces the force of demand And this is necessarily as true of one com rcodity as another; as true of coin as il is of corn.

Dr. Miles' Nerv ine Cured Him. Weak, nervous, fretful, puny children re quire a treatment such as only Dr. ' Miles' Nervine affords. - When neglected these symptoms lead to epileptic fits or spasms. Every mother should strengthen her own and babies' nerves with Dr. Miles' Nervine, a true specific in all nervous disorders. Read the following: "When my little boy was 18 months old he had cramps in his feet and hands. They would be drawn out of shape for two or three days. At first liniment seemed to help but in about two weeks nothing did any good the doctor gave him. We called another doctor but his medicine did no good so we changed to another who called it spinal dis ease. By this time the child's body was drawn out of shape; his backbone was curved to one side and his hands and feet out of shape. His sufferings were terrible, and he was having from two to six fits a day. I was taking Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine for nervous trouble and saw it was recommended for fits, so I thought I would see if it would help him. All three doctors had given him up. One-half bottle stopped the fits and his limbs straightened, and another bottle cured him. He is now a strong, healthy boy going to schooL I have waited to see if the old trouble returned, before writing you, but it never has. I cannot praise Dr. Miles' Nerv ine enough, as I know it saved my boy's life." Mrs. Uriah Nelson, Lansing, Iowa. " All drutrgists sell and guarantee first bot tle Dr. Miles' Remedies.
