TUESDAY, A I "OUST
THOSE SPANISH PRIZES.
A good deal of comment has been
caused by the ridiculously low figures
brought by the Spanish prizes captured
by the United States navy and sold at
public auc-L.o... .... .,?,., (|C lhu r;i?.|in
Ventura ill New York the ..th.-r .ta.v ,..
a case In point. This vessel was valued
at $100,ll(ii). A slmilnr experience was
had in the cas,- of the Guido, valued at
$400,(10(1. which brought at auction only
$130.000. Unless the value of these ves?
sels lias been greatly ovei M| jointed, the
I "ices obtained at sales already hem is
pi'.-tly good evidence that ini,;ls
been a combination to beat down the
prices or else the present is an exi.I
illgly bad lime to put ships on the mar?
ket, in either event, the prizes should
have been held for a figure commensu?
rate with their well known value. Ii is
not a g.1 business policy to sacrifice
property at less than half its vain.- un?
less circumstances make it absolutely
necessary. It is possible thai the com?
missioners who set the value on the
Spanish prizes used the standards
adopted by the gentlemen who set the
prices' on the high-class yachts pur?
chased from millionaires, with a "pull."
at th,. beginning of lie- war. in which
.-vent t heir exorbitant estimates might
be easily explained. In the meantime,
however, the jolly tars who had been
led to believe that they would r.ive
$100,000 in priz.- money will find little
cons' dation in the fact that the amount
has been scaled down to $1^.000.
It is to lie hoped that the new aspi?
rant for the honor of winning America's
cup will display less ill nature than was
exhibited By Hi.- fault-finding Dunra
ven, the last contestant for the trophy.
If the Englishmen capture tin- cup
fairly no intelligent American will fed
aggrieved. It i.s the childish, would-be
"sports" who cannot take defeat grace?
fully that cause all the trouble, and fre?
quently bring about a condition of af?
fairs that threatens to destroy interna?
tional yacht racing.
In outlining the terms of peace Pres?
ident. McKinley was wise in refraining
from demanding that the Spaniards
stop calling us "Yankee pigs." So long
as this dear privilege is not abrogated
the average Spaniard will find life
wot tli living.
The first boat to come from the Klon?
dike this year brings 112 passengers and
SSOO.OOO worth of gold. These figures
furnish abundant evidence of tie- fact
that the "millions" lying buried in the
bowels of the Alaska mountains are
comfng up very slow.
Mayor Van Wyck lias conclusively
shown that a man may be a In t.. w ith?

Then he laughed and poked nie and
says, 'Which one are you tabling
