any compromise with the creditors Ol the
stat.-. Mr. Kudata delights In Informing
the public that fewer coupon* have been

from the Simple faV I that Coupon Killer
No. I has been effectual.* killed by de
prlving the couponholder and taxpayer
of all remedy by requiring the production
of the bond with the coupon and by ex?
cluding expert testimony. Very few try
to force coupons Into the treasury, bul
\. rs refuse to pay tai pt '"
