Mr. ROSS (Ontario).

The case mentioned by the bon. member for Grey is very common. A merchant issues coins which are sold him by manufacturers on the other side. They resemble the coin of the realm, and they are good for their face value at his store. Instead of giving due bills to his customers, he gives these coins, which he takes in payment for goods. Is that contrary to the law ?
