A fascinating, unrecorded, graphically illustrated weekly edited by W. H. Harvey with a platform of “The Free Coinage of Silver in the ratio to Gold of 16 to 1; as it existed prior to 1873.” The illustrations are by Bert Cassidy. Another interesting feature is the publication of the menus, with prices, of the Great Northern French Cafe and Saratoga Restaurant. Another wonderful example of the lost and unrecorded periodicals of this era.
