instituted suit In tho Circuit Court of Ihe

against James O. lllalne, as Secretary of

plaintiff's status under a proclamation by
Sci retary of State William H. Suwardon
July 28, 180s, reciting Hint "neither thu
United States nur any State shall pay any

chased for their full valuo$12j,0X of ne

would owe a valid obligation.
