T. Sampson) and the vessels under his comirmitd." • shown ttie Department'* Purport?. It t'oreeiists the purpose of the de- li.'irtment of Justice to support tlie contention that the armored cruiser New York actually participated In the battle with ('en-era's Heel and that, her addition to the force made It superior to the Spanish squadron. Should It be decided by the court of claims that the American force at San- llnpo was the equal or superior to that under the command of Admiral Cervera the American officers and men will be entitled to bounty amounting to .'jil00 for each officer and man on, board the Spanish licet. If the American force was Inferior to the Spanish squadron then a bounty of $200 for each olHcer and man on the destroyed vessels will be allowed. Larger Prize for Inferior Foive. 1'uder the terms'of the law regarding prize money "the net proceeds of all property condemned as prize shall, when the prize was of superior or equal force to the vessel or vessels making the capture be decreed to the captors and when of inferior force, one-half shall be decreed to the United States 'and the other half to the captors." It. is expected that the court of claims and the district supreme court will determine the question of whether the New York took part in the battle and by its decision an end will be put to the controversy which has been n Hi taring the navy and the country since tlu" bat tie occurred. Ac-fording to the -brief submitted by the attorneys for the libelunts, Admiral Sampson "Is informed and believes that the said naval force of the king of gpuln, supported as aforesaid (liy the Spanish laud batteries), was of force equal or superior to that of the said vessels of the United States navy." The libel- hints' brief further asserts that this New York was Included In the fleet. D-jnlvn Knmny'B (inferiority. While the attorney general In Ills reply makes no statement relative to the American force actually engaged In the buttle with Ccrvera's fleet, ho denies that "the said naval forces of the king'of Spain., supported by any laud 'butteries., to the lire .of which the said vessels of the United States navy were exposed during the said engagement, was of force equal or superior to that of the'Kiild vessels of the United States navy." The attorney general further asserts that all the Spanish vessels were sunk or destroyed, "so that neither of the said vessels of the said king of Spain nor any naval stores, supplies or other properly upon the same could become the subject of condemnation In prize to the libelhint and the officers and crews of the vessels under his command." A»k» th« I Ilii'l IM»ml»nml. After the destruction of the Spanish vessels the United States, at Its own expense, raised the Infanta Maria Teresa and the property taken from other vessels. The properly or the proceeds from Its sale; he leclares. Is now in the possession nl' the government and for that reaon no part of it has been or can be sent in for adjudication to any court. He therefore prays that the libel be dismissed. I'RITI.UIt I'Vllt OK IWOIHEKS. MiililKiiii Men Htivt- Nut N|nikVii to Kuril Other >'<»r IVui'M.

IHin & I.'O.'H weekly review of trade says: The btifllnosM of tin* new year begins well, though there IH still much of the usintl hesitation, in hranchcH whore last year's business was extraordinary and prices have risen greatly some paum; Is natural, though nothing Indicates a decrease of consuming disposition or pin-chasing power, and there Is a continuing rise In.wages to promote Increase. .Monetary conditions have grown easier with the return of $-1.000,000 from the Interior during the week, and further deposit* by the treasury and more liquidation in some speculative stocks have also helped. Hmiks report an Increase In their per cent, of :'ommovelal loans, and rates were gen-, I'l-ally more ciisy after the decline announced by European batiks. The fin'- naeo.s In blast on .Inn. 1 were producing weekly 2!)4,18<i tons of pig-iron, against 200,050 on Dee. J, but as nev- •ral otlier.s had started the output now s probably larger than at either date. it exceeds consumption at last, as The Iron Age shows an liic.rease of 0,250 OKS in unsold stocks, but the manufacture apparently consumed during the year 13,831 ,(>2<( tons, less small tier xports In December. Little Change In Prices. The Increase since 1802 IB about 4,225,000 tons, or 40.5 per cent. Prices change scarcely nay. nor is new business significant. The minor metals are strong in tone, but as yet. without much change in prices. Textile manufactures are niore fully employed iharj for a long time, tbough scarcity :>f water has troubled some cotton mills. Trade Is cinbhrrassed by uncer- ainty about prices. Wool is not active, 101' are speculators or manufacturers n haste to buy nt current prices, hough the goods market shows some advances for the next season with excellent trade thus far. The effect upon :he season's sale cannot yet be Judged. L'otton goods have been quiet and no longer advance in prices, as the market for the material is uncertain in tone. The boot and shoe manufacture lias a similar difficulty, for while shipments are heavier than ever before at this season, in two weeks 170,370 cases, against 148,174 last year, nnd 171,751 In 1808, as the rapid distribution to consumers causes most urgent calls for goods previously ordered, yet dealers are slow to order more in the fear that prices will not hold. Manufacturers insist that still further advances are needed to cover the cost of leather. The Chicago market for hides is weaker, with a lower average than at any time since Xov. 1. Short Crop of Cotton, Cotton moves so slowly 'that belief in a short crop Is constantly strengthened, but foreign demands are'.much reduced also. On .Tan. 5 only 0.000,031 bales had come Into sight, against 8.001,1)10 last year, but exports had decreased l,72r>,0<)0 bales, and European stocks were far below last year's. For the present foreigners are using up old stocks Instead of buying more, and the price hesitates. Wheat has been slow to move also, Atlantic exports in two weeks having been only 4.370,514 bushels. Hour Included, against 0.452,10« last year, and Pacific, 1,312.003. against 1,524.051 last year. The prices close a fraction higher. O'orn receipts have also fallen below last year's, though the exports In two weeks have been 7,331,088 bushels, against 7,100,013 last year, and prices have advanced about half a cent. Failures for the week have been 274 In the United States, against 318 last year, and twenty-live in Canada, against twenty-four last year. JKuMell 8«Re Crl!l«'l»eil.

If men could only realize how small a thing may act at the critical instant to switch them from a dangerous track on to one of perfect safety, the yearly deaths from lung diseases would be less oy many thousands. "I had n regular consumptive cough, of which I was afraid, and everybody cautioned and warned me concerning it," says Mr. A. F. Novotny, P. O. Box 1437, New York, in a significant, letter to Dr. R. V. Pierce of buffalo, N. Y. "When I started to take your medicine 1 was losing weight rapidly; I wan very pale nnd had no appetite whatever.
