The controversy arose between Mr:' A. 'T; Sptton and Mr, George Gonser. Mr^Gonser overheard Mr. Sutton make the statement/ that the Mexican dollars offered for, sale by a Broadway.-.cigar, denier, were counterfeit, Mr. Gonser-cbal-i lenged tlie statement and to prove,that he was right, induced Mr. Sutton nftett much persuasion to accompany' him to tho store of the cigar dealer. 1 men-, tioned, where tho new coin offered for: sale was subjected to n critical inspection, aud wns compared .with one.'jof- enrller-dato, the property of a.-welt- known Democratic Inwjrr. a.n ardent, free silver advocate who was present: There wns a dissimilarity in the coins, but there is also a dissimilarity'-between the dollars of the United States coined before 1S73, and those coined since. The owner of the new Mexican dollar offered to make affidavit to the ;enuineness of the coins, supplemented ty a letter from Lymaii ,7. (race of the, First National bank of Chicago, certifying that the coins were purchased: llrect from the Mexican mint. :In ad- lltlon to this, the denier took one of tlw- lollnrs to a well-known jeweler, .who weighed it nnd found-It to be of .stnnv dard weight. It was subjected, to .an icld test and the jeweler gave his-car-: tl'flcate that It wns of standard ..-Oner nessi After all this, it would, seem, .hat the chnrge of Mr. Sutton had' been sufficiently refuted, but not so.
