The sub-treasury plan is the only

taxation for the emission of money.
The idea that ' money issued through
the sub-treasury is first taxed from one,
class of the, people before it is loaned
to to another is absurd, and discloses
the ignorance or miudaeity of everyone
w!io,m ikes the assertion. Tiie third
and fourth sections of that bill when

war certain selfish partisans are guilty
of waging against the bilj. Every
