Mr. LECLERC:

I hold in my hand something that may prove to the exponents of easy money what easy money means after all. I have here a menu from a dining car plying between the United States and Mexico, and here are some of the different prices on that bill of fare: Fried fillet of fresh fish,
tartar sauce, chopped beef steak, et cetera, $1.20 in American money-this is printed in English and in Mexican-or $6 in Mexican money. The next item is $1.15 in American money or $5.75 in Mexican money.
