A« to Prize Moneys. line prize court of inquiry that bai haen organized at Key West will dispose of the cases of all the Spanish ves- »ls captured by our .hips in We« Indian waters. Probably several of tbe' earlier seizures will be annulled under strict interpretations of rights and tbe captured vessels released. Those that ara held as lawful prizes, however, will have their net values apportioned among several partifis. If the ruling holds tbat the war actually began when Minister Woodford recwved from Spain bis dismissal, Thursday, April 21 then the Baena Venturs, seized by the Nashville on the morning of April 22, is a lawful prize. The rules on the sabject of pnze moneys is that when an enemy's war vessel is captured by a war vessel of the opposing fleet tbe government gets the ves- s«l and tbe prize money. When a trading ship is captured, however, the cap- tarers share in the mm obtained from Billing the vessel and her cargo. Tbe money is distributed between the government and the captors according to retain usages. Thus, if * man-of-war captures a merchantman or a vessel containing contraband goods and the seized ship is of greater naval strength than the one making tbe capture, she is turned QUESTION OF PRICES. They Are the Essence of the Monetary Problem. over entirely to the crew that caught her. cargo aud all. When the captured vessel is of inferior strength to tne captor then the government gets half the prize money.

If we were to retire $,-,00,000,000 in greenbacks, etc., and $500,000,000 in bank rotes were issued in their stead, so far as the outflow oi 1 gold is concerned the situation would bt: unchanged. If instead of issuing $500, 000,000 in bii.uk notfis 81,000,000,000 were put in circulation the effect would be to raise prices in this country.

No currency reform can possibly insure the permanent maintenance of the {-old standard unless it be a reform thstt involves a contraction of our paper currency and consequently lower prices. .If W e had no silver or paper money, the Fold standard would be perfectly secure, but where would prices go? What wou.ld be tbe condition of our producers? Prices would drop out of sight and producers who were ; n debt would be ruined.

The assignment ot cne battalion of infantry, Uvo batteries ot lis-ht artillery and one troop of cavalry—Utah'!: apportionment of troops for the national detent—is taken to indicate that some of them will be sent to Manila. If the original programme is ac- hered to the volunteers to be sent to reinforce Admiral Dewey will include the following with the possible exception of the artillery and the riflemen: Two regiments of infantry and two batteries of heavy artillery from California one refriment of infantry from Ore- K on one :trom Washington, and one battalion of infantry and Senator Shoup's troop of riflemen from Idaho. In addition v.o these troops, the department will. 11 is said, avail itself of the four companies of the Fourteenth m- fantrv. now on their way from Vancouver barracks to San Francisco, and portions of tie Fourth cavalry and Third artillery. _.,.

Alj(j<JJHJi"6 u " ""- w — r pby, the chief function of gold seems to be'the redemption of other forms of 'money, while tbe chief function of lihe other forms is to be redeemed. When dealing with trade matters, they do attach some importance to prices. Hvery business man regards a fall in tbo prices of his goods and property as a bad tLing. Hence a general fall is even-where looked upon as unfavorable to business, while a general rise is comsid- ereid an advantage. These facts aro so patent that no trade or financial journal can ignore them when dealing-directly •with u:annfacturing and trade, but tbe moment they take up the money question they are as oblivious to the matter of prices as if there were no connection between prices and money. It ought to be plain to all that prices depend absolutely upon money and are controlled by it" Prices are fixed by the exchange of goods and property for money. If there were no money there could ba no prices. The less money there is in proportion to the things to be exchanged for it tbe lower the prices will ndces- sa,rily be. The more money there is in proportion to those things the higher tbe prices will be. Any person of average intelligence ought to be able to comprehend ae simple a proposition as this. Nevertheless the gold standard press throughout the world goes right on harping about gold redemption and parity as if the maintaining of one dollar OQ a par with every other dollar were chief aim of our existence.

Tbe financial journals of England irenerally speak for the creditor cliiss of that country. They desire what they call currency reform in this country because they know that to work it out on a gold basis means a cheapening of onr products and an enhancement of their gold. Aside from the items of •payment which we inn-,; regularly make to Enrope mentioned by The Financial Sewn our annual interest payments cannot be less than $200,000,000 a year, and they are probably more. The lower onr prices fall tbe more it takes of our product to fill these payments and the greater becomes tbe value of the English Creditor's gold claim. Low prices benefit the foreign creditor and injure the aunerican producer and debtor. Reform ~oi our monetary system is certainly needed but not a reformation on the gold standard lines for the benefit ot the foreign creditor through, the ruin o. the American producer. What w« want to do is to make gold cheaper, noi dearer The most effective means to tn^ end is to restore bimetallism—to pat silver into full competition with gold, permanently raising prices botn at abroad.
