Tho hook Ih called "Mr. Osoba's LiiHt Dis covery," and Ih Hlmply a HcioutlHo review of tho prlnolpleH of govern mont found in Now Zealand. As Mr. Hull in a Htauuuh aud loyal American, a profound thinker and a trtiHted agent of tho United States government, IiIh thoughts will ho followed with more than piling intorcHt. In Europe, where gold plays a more important part hh a circulating medium in the currency than in tho United SlatoH, gold coIiih are allowed to Hull'or hut little Iohh of woiglil hofoio thoy aro called in from circulation.
