11EACONSKIELD AND gAI.ISHCKT IlONuUED.
London, Aug. 1. The Times vilieiiieiitly
attacks Gladstone this morning an. 1 says
nt' his speech: "The house of comm ins
listens with bated breath for his contribu
tion to the great controversy and for some
prophetic trliinpue into the future. He
speaks two hours and a half and occupies
seven columns of our space. He carries
his hearers irresitilily down a torrent of
brilliant oratory, but when all is over and
we have time to breathe, to what docs it all
amount N With few exceptions, to nothing
but prnlong.'d invective against the present
ministry. Scarcely anythino they have
done or said escapes denunciation. They
have preferred servitude to freedom: have
pretended to defend public uw and have
really betrayed it; have made a mad con
vention, violated existing treaties, brought
into question an important prerogative of
their own, discredited us abroad and weak
ened us at home. I Jut who are those plenip
otentiaries whom lie denounces with this
mem-nan-, unrelieved censure? They are
not merely Lords Bearonsfleld nnd Salis
bury : they an- the representatives of Eng
land In fore Europe and the world. Their
work when ratified is the work of England.
They have not usurped power over un
willing people. Gladstone himself admits
that they command the approval of the
mas cf their countrymen. There are
other persons in the world besides Ucaciis
liehl. and larger questions at .-take than
tliat of the conduct of the ministry on
details of prolonged negotiations. We
rcrret to say it, but the whole tenor of Mr.
Gladstone's speech, as much by what it
contained as by what it omitted, was in
consistent with .statesmanship or generous
patriotism, nnd he must proportionately
forfeit his claim to the attention of his
countrymen on this great issue."

SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE
tiik valce ok the memcvx iioli.au the
TUADK lull. 1, All NOT OOOI) Full TAXES
extent ok the ciiutlation ok the
MEXICAN ANDTIIAI'E HOI.I.AllS.
Wasuinoton, August 2. There having
been put into circulation iu the South
western part of the (ounlry quite an amount
of Mexican dollars, since tlie dollar of the
daddies began to be coined, am I as the Mex
ican dollar had in a great measure been
passing for a dollar of our money, many in
quiries were addressed to the treasury" de
partment as to its value and the terms on
which it would be received nt the mints.
The director of the mint has issued a eir
cular answering these questions. He savs
that the revisul statutes, section :i,t!84. de
clares that "no foreign gold or silver shall
be a leiral tender in the payment of debts."
The Mexican dollar, therefore, has no value
except as bullion, which value depends
iipnn the price of silver. Its bullion value
at the present time Is 00. Scents In gold, Its
circulation in the United States is optional,
mid at whatever valuo mav be agreed upon.
The United States trade dollar is also not
a legal tender timl, therefore, has only a
bullion value. All foreign coins and the
trade dollars arc purchnsed at the mints in
Philadelphia, San Francisco and Carson, and
the assay otliee at New York at the equiv
alent of the London rate for silver bullion
at the day of purchase, less one-half cent
of line silver contained. All silver coins so
purchased are melted nnd assayed and the
seller paid for the tine silver contained in
the standard silver dollars. The seller is
required to my the express charges- both
ways. The deduction at the mint of one
half cent per ounce of tine silver contained
amounts to about four mills on the dollar.
COIN KOIl TAXES.
The conunisMonerof internal revenue in a
circular states that trade dollars cannot be
received in payment of taxes. He also says
that the silver coins under one dollar are
legal-tender to the amount of five dollars.
This, ho says, is understood to mean that
when the entire amount to be paid by the
tax-pnyers does not exceed tlvc dollars it
win be, paid in subsidiary coin, but if the
amount f tax exceeds $3, such silver can
not be receivrd except for the fractional
part of a dollar involved in the payment.
He further says that whenever gold coin is
received in payment of taxes, great care
should be used to take none that appears to
be less than standard weight fixed by law.
EXTENT OF THE CIltlTLATION OK MEXICAN
AND THADE DOM.AHS.
Few persons know the extent to which
the Mexican and trade dollars arc in circu
lation. The president of an ice company
in New York city writes to the director of
the mint that his company is taking it,
10,000 a seek in Mexican and trade tbl
lars nnd subsidiary coin witli which nothing
can be done. The banks say they have no
stornge-ronm. Intrinsically 'his f'iO.OOO is
worth but nliout $20,000 makimr a
weekly loss of f 1,000. The circular given
above shows the ice company man that he
can refuse the Mexican and trade dollars,
but that there is no relief from the subsidi
ary coin. The honsn t tli Into Ui'Ut.11 ill
passed a bill providing that subsidiary coin
annum ue redeemed in sums ot one litin
dreil dollars and llililtinles thereof Imt- tb..
bill never came up for action in the senate.
in tne west, especially m Kansas anil Texas,
local banks went inOi aii.r.iilntb,iw ! I.,,,.
ing Mexieun dollars at 89 cents and paying
iiieiu omat iihi cents. iV.iwthat the stand
ard silver dollar is iroill.r ialn pircnliitbn,
these Mexican dollars are worth but their
intrinsic value, and they are coming back
on the banks, who cannot reject what they
have paid out. One bank in Omaha nut
flo.Oill) into trade dollars at their intrinsic
value and started them into circulation. A
rival bank secured some standard dollars
and immediately diminished the circula
tion of the trade dollars.

Milestones on the uoau to health.- -r
The recovery of digestion nnd the resump
tion of activity by the liver, bowels and kid
neys are milestones which mark our pro
gress on the road to health. They speed

Nothing so surely and expeditiously con
sumes the distance, to the desired goal.
As no bodily function can suffer interrup
tion without Impairing the general health
of the system, so the system can never
acquire perfect vigor, health's synonym,
until that function be actively resumed.
Take, for instance, digestion, a suspension
of which is invariably rectified by tho
Bitters. If the organs upon 'which it de
volves grow weak, biliousness, constipation,
headache, piyvcrty of the blood, and a hun
dred other symptoms supervene, which,
indicate unmistakably the baneful general
inlltieiice of dyspepsia. The disappearance
of all these symptoms through thu use of
the Bitters shows with what thoroughness, it
removes their cause.
