an extraordinary assertion. In October,
1877, the director of the mint estimated
me wnoie com ana bullion of tho country
at 8260,000,000. It was an estimate
made by a Radical office-holder and was
as large as tho facts allowed.

The iurisdiotion point in the ehrht
cases agafast Lincoln and Ralls counties.
(1600,000 are, involved fa the nutter)
waa decided upon yesterday by the
United State circuit court. These
cases, as frequently stated, are suits on
bonds, the counties refusing the interest
accumulated on railway bonds that were
issued by way of subscription. It hau
been a question whether the Federal
courts havo iurisdiotion to enforce tho
payment, and decision has never before
been given on the point fa Missouri; In
tho agreement osafnit tho iurisdiotion in
tho united States court the defendant set
out, among other things, that a county
under the statutes of Missouri is not a
complete corporation, as fa other states,
but a quart corporation or a political di
vision of the state, as declared by the
state supreme court (in 80 M. R, 661
and 40 M. R., Ray county va. Bontley).
That under tho chapter concerning
County contracts, it was nnlv nmvl.lo.1
that suits against counties may bn insti
tuted fa. the circuit court of that particu
lar county. That tho supreme court fa
MiSSOUri in IRAft ImJ'iml (W wlinrovm-
the word "may" was used in reference to
publio officers, or rights of third parties,
it meant "shall." anil nnwliom im.W th.i
statutes of Missouri was authority granted
to suo a county elsewhnm fWi in lm Mr.
cuit court thereof, and that no audi au
thority could be implied fa reference to
n quasi corporation ; and that nowhere
was it declared "a body corporate with
power to suo and bo sued, etc., fa uny
court or law of equity" as in Illinois,
from which state the only analagous case
decided by tho United States supremo
court was taken f7th Wallace, 118).
It is a remarkabln fnnt. hv.H.n
that tho Same section iin.lnr vmoi'i1
ation is the ono under which court
houses are exempted from execution. So
much of that law has always been scrupu
lously respected by Federal courts.
Judco Dillon. hownvir. rnlml ft. nf. ff.v
decision in 7th Wallace controlled, nnd
that tho Federal court had jurisdiction.
It waa also contended by defendant
that tho lamruoce of tho ntntnta dt.l

such service was only Ktlfltmnnf in mim
instituted in state courts, nn that section
of law was to bo construed in pari mate
ral with other sections limitincr th ricrlif
of suit to state courts.
These cases are being fought step by
step, and will bo taknn eventually to tho
United States supremo court.
