MIXED COURT TO HEAR CASES Newspaper Writers at Shanghai Aro Sustained by tbo Foreign Mlalsters. SHANGHAI, Oct. 23 -The diplomatic corps at Peking haa unanimously decided that tha Supao prisoners must be promptly tried by the mixed court here. The Supao la a Chinese Journal published at Shanghai, a treaty port, by a number of young "literati." They printed some ar- tlniea strongly denouncing the Manchu rulers of China aa tha hereditary enemies of the nation. The matter attracted the attention of the Chinese authorities and the consular body at Shanghai waa appointed by the taotal of that city with a view to the apprehen sion pf the offending reformers. It waa then agreed between the taotal and the consuls that the Journalist should be put under arrest and tried by the mixed court and if found guilty they should undergo punishment in the foreign Battle ment.

In tha Knrthern Becuritlea case tha order J ,,irlM,ted tha re-transfer of tha stock to Its original owmra and recognised the property rlghta of tha Northern Securities.

Announcement waa made yeaterday that the negotiations between represent atives of the Nebraska and Iowa university foot ball elevens, looking to the contest being held In Omaha, had failed and that the game would be played In Iowa City. The Nebraska-Iowa foot ball game la con ducted under a two years' contract which provides that the 191X1 game shall be played In Iowa City and the 1U04 game in Lincoln. Acting on the supposition that the game would be held at Iowa City, the Iowa City management went ahead and sold a large number of season tickets for Its "t-home" games. Were the game with Nebraska to be contested somewhere else than Iowa City, the foot ball management at that place would be compelled to return the money which the patrona and friends of the team have advanced for the season admission book. A handsome cash offer waa made the Iowa City authorities and they were dis posed to accept It, but had their hands tied so - that they could not extricate themselves. Nebraska accepted the offer which waa made by local parties. Including H. A. Tukey and others, but Iowa did not aee lta way clear to do ao. It waa stated that local parties had made the Iowa and Nebraska managementa a guaranteed offer of P.OnO for the game, hut this could not be verified. When Mr. Spangler waa In the city ha negotiated with other parties than the onea who are understood to have made the $3,000 offer. But the fact that auch a large aum had been offered militated against the local parties who took the mat ter up while Mr. Spangler waa In the city, as he, thought that If any person could make auch an offer It ahould be duplicated by othera. While the 1903 game will not be played In Omaha assurances have been given that the 1904 game will be pulled off In this city. The Nebraska authorities have the say about thla matter for next year and It la understood that the proposition pro viding for the contest in Omaha la ac ceptable to them.

NOMINATING COMMITTEE MAKES REPORT Last Day of Convention of tho Amer ican Beakers Assorlatloa Con cludes with Flection of Officers, SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. .-Th. closing day of the American Bankers' association convention commenced with prayer by Rev. Bradford Leavltt, after which the call of states was resumed and ' statements of natural advantages and financial and agri cultural prosperity were recited by the delegates from their respective sections. J. B. Flnley, president of the Fifth Na tional hank of Pittsburg, read a paper on "The Education of Bank Clerks." Treasurer Roberts Talka. He was followed by Hon. Ellis H. Roberts, treasurer of the United States, who de livered an address on "The Effects of the Inflow of Gold." Mr. Rotmrtn said: Tho discovery of gold In California lifted the production of the yellow metaj In the I nlled States from $!9,0u0 in 1S47 to $0, IHJO.OOO in 1K&2, and from 1KO to lWu, pro duced an average of ITo.OOO.uuo a year. The event marks an epoch. In twenty-one of each of the years since, our mines have' turned out less than $40.000,0n0. while In l'MH they cave IV1.0KI 0.0. rnt r m. tlon pregnant problems arise which call for thought What place Is more fitting for their Htudy than Just here where we stand, where we forgather with the home' shepherds of the golden fleece? The Amer ican Bankers' association. representing over $14,wo,0rtu.000 of resources, and all the activity of the nation's thrift and enter prise, meets on the Pacific slope. We have from many points crossed the broad conti nent to look upon the waters of the new Mediterranean, the ocean of peace. TTpoit It the scenes are sot for the grand drama of the future. The sea which was dom inated In turn by the Phoenicians, the Greeks and the Romans, was of waters dyed with blood; it is a little Inland lake compared with the mighty ocean which connects the Occident with the Orient, which beats upon America and Asia and Australasia, and holds In Its lap Islands upon which nature baa lavished Its moet precious treasures, California has learned that there is wealth more precious than gold, because it has used Its gold wisely. It clings to actual coin as currency, and has never wavered from fidelity to It as a standard. Under Its sky. In its atmosphere, amid Ito gardens and Its ranches, we cannot fell of a true perspective and of a healthful exaltation In our practical discussion. In the United States at the beginning of this month of October, the gold In the stock of money was $l.277.36J.iol ; tha amount held by the treasury waa tWMl.U. and In circulation in coin and cert I flea tea was $l,01.t48,93. - Of the world's production In IS"?, amount ing to rsnooo OG0, tha United Statea fur nished $XO,000.000. America Haa Most Gold. , Tn gold In stock. In clrculstlon and In official holdings, our country surpasses every other nation. The stock of Greet Britain la 1028,000,000, so that ours Is double. The Increase In five years here has been 37.021.SX7. In that period Great Britain has added t90.0O0.0IO; France. $137.700,'f'0; Germany. $,0W,O0i; Auxtrta-liungary, $55. 30.C00. while Russia lost I10.4un.0lio, and In several other countries there has been a reduction. In all of Europe the totil esln In the same Interval has been $449,4 0(00, from which Is to lie deducted the falling off In several nations of $2S,of) ono. and thus a net Increase la shown of S423.nOO.ftiO. (8e. table B at cl.xe of address.) At the present rate our gnin be' re this calendar year ends. In stock of the yellow metal, will exceed that of all European countries. Remember also that their population la five times that of the United States. An interesting comparison Is that by per sons. Our stock of rold Is $15 0 per capita; that of France Is stated at $24.36; of Ger many. $1TM; of Austria-Hungary, $i!.01: of Russia, $5.70; of Swltxerland, 19.0); of Swe den. $.1.42; of Norway, $3 73. (See table C at closi of address.) This plethora of the precious metal In our country presents three problems Inter esting and Important. What Is to be the effect on our currency? What on prices and wages? What on our world relations? Pnths may be opened for our Investiga tion If we look back to the decade follow ing the discovery of gold In California and study tho conditions from 10 to 1M0. In that period our country produced gold of the coinage value of tf.Sfl.000.0o0, an average of $Ti60io.iO a vear. With population rang ing from 2:i.000,00 to Sl.t.OOO. activity marked all branches of Industry. In the census vears the value of manufactures produced ran up from $1.018.10. sie to $1 s5, M1.67fi an Increase in ten years of $?i'4.?6e Mi. In the decsde our national wealth aa creased bv $9.0"3.MS.fo. Imoorts of mer chandise grew from $173.B09.5? to $363.61,11e. more than double; from $7.4 tier capita to 1H. IS: and exports from $144 75.728 to H3S.B7SW. again more than double, and from $H 23 to $'0 n per canita. The money In clrcu'ation Increased from VSft.V ff to $45 407.2E2. and from $12.02 per capita to in Ki. Of this, banknotes were. In 1S50, $131.afi6.B'0 and in 1W.fi r07 102 477. snd sneci at the two periods, $15l.oro.AftA snd $236,000.- OuO. Prices of food and clothing advanced. and up to lHf a general Increase occurred of 11 per cent, but in the aum of articles chosen for Index there was a fall of 2$ per cent before 1M0. Pig Iron, a tynlcal product, went from $20 W in lKjO to $22.7$ In lfc-A In Orest Britain from the decade 1Ma-l7 to lfCs-lnn. there was an advance In index prices from W to 9. Where Peril Lies. Possible peril lies on another side. Our circulation is undergoing an immense anil continuous inflation. In nve years tha money in circulation in this Country has run up from 11.910.410,.' to Ii,4o4,t.l7,0, an lncrouan ot $.jU,-i,T7. The strength I that of this growth ls.SU4.s72 has been In gold, coin and certificates, an annual ad. dition in tliat form of nearly $7,uu0,0ukl. We are to confront a further lncrse in our circulation, of which gold will con stitute not far from $u.uO,0u0 a year. Tlutt precious melai, including the certificate standing fur it is now 42.27 of the total, an i lta share advances suadily. Since October 1, lb'i, thu circulation for each person in the United Slates has run up from $24.24 to t-V.'d and the part of gold in it from $8. 7s to $12.67. While no where elne are checks and drafts aud like instruments usrl to the same extent as with us, no other country has so much money per capita In clrculaton save France, which claims $J.22. where checks are much leai used than here. Great Britain has 110.2$ and Germany $20 4; Canada, $14 la; Ruaaia has only tti.W. Differing from notes of national bank, gold is money of final reeerve ai d i-deiiiptiiii, and the credit built upon it la nigner ana nroaaer, so tnat the potential Inflilion may be carried further. With due allowance then for contrary in fl nemos, how far and in what direction ia the east inflow of the yellow metal rain ing us? The blind may see that in the Wat nve years business has been expanded in some directions In in unparalleled de gree. Credit has naturally been multiplied at least to four times the amount of casn adtk-d to our supply. The exploitation vt gigantic industrial corporations ran on at a daiigtirous spevd, fortunately to exhauxt itaelf by Its own excesas. Promotion of storks and bonds Is not industry; it la spec ulation, and that finds help and impetus In Inflation. In that way the inflow of gold 1ms magnified if not wholly caused the frenxy and the excesses In industrial sturilie. Those who have cllnibod loo high into the realm of credit must come down, aud here the descent, unlike that lo Avernus, is not smooth and pleaanr.t. The promoter who has failed to distribute ills hUM k and bonds may he punished, and thoee wiio havo pel led hia shemes may auffer. Hut a shrinking of inflated securi ties to their true value Is not a pubtlo Calamity. ladivkluaia aaay be crippled.
