' ** r * ' ' *"  Baker was to "blame.* .-Dexter  was''handicapped with a bad   record.    Still rhe   had  been driven for the last three months with a  curb bit m hia mouth, 'and his  owner testified that with that bit,-any one  used-.to'  a  horse could drive him with safety.     It   ap-  Piared that Dexter hadr been- driven   from  B^uler's to MePhee'a store   at   Courtenay,  miking a stop there  of   ten   minutes, ���������  and  back up to a point on the Courtenay Union^  road'aboub o:*e and a half  miles ; south   of  Bouler'a in   35   minutes.    This   would'be  driving him ftye and a half miles, two thirds  of the way up hill, in   25   minutes���������pretty  stiff driving.    On the other hand Baker testified   he held him. the best he   could,   and  that at the Long bjtidge he lost   control   of  him, beyond succeeding in keeping him   in  the road, until he fell dnad on the hill,   this  side of the bridge.    Und������3r the  circumstances, the magistrate held it   had   not   been  proved that Baker had  cruelly   driven   the  horse.    On the otner hand he thought   Mr.  Kilpatrick, the owner, was perfectly  justified in laying the information, so as to have  the facts judicially investigated.    He therefore dismissed the   case, adjuding that each  should pay his own coots},  When Baker arrived at Cumberland, ho  lo>ked like the picture of St. Jacob's  oil man, but was not hurt. He was ably  defended at the trial by Mr. L. P. Eckstein,  Mr. Baird conducted the prosecution, and  \ exhihitsd a good dc;al of tact and skill in  the introduction or the evidence.

FIGHTINGjmREVENGE  Thrilling   Story   of- a   Former  Spanish Prisoner.  HIS DARING DASH FOR LIBERTY.  Undying-   Hatred    Between   the   Insulars  and Peninsulars.  Quite a portion*of the,inhabitants of  Cuba is. made up of Spaniards who have  come from various Spanish provinces.  Native Spaniards who had held official positions in Peru, Venezuela and other countries came to Cuba. Mr. Fiske explains  that these "favored immigrants in Cuba  ���������    ���������VfLLAGE  SCENE IN THE LADRONE  ISLANDS.  right in A the path of the Charleston and'  thc transport City of Peking on the road  to the Philippines, and- it is understood  that Captain Glass sailed with orders to  Btop and seizo these islands, or the princi-  , pal port at least, before proceeding to re-  enforce Dewey. They might come in  handy if a Pacific coaling station were  wanted, and at any rate they can be held  as security for the thumping big war indemnity which Spain must pay us in consideration for the first class thrashing we  are giving her.  .  The principal port of Guahan is the town  of Agana.   For a place of its size it is said  to be well  fortified, having" two forts, in,  which are mounted cannon of various ages  . and uncertain effectiveness.    Soon after  the commencement of thc present war the  garrison 'at Agana,was strengthened, and  some now guns were mounted, but the au-  ��������� thorities at Washington were confident that  , Captain  Glass would have little difficulty  in reducing the forts with tho Charleston's  guns.. 'If he has, he has some new artillery aboard. that can . be used to, hold  .   the place after an American garrison has  been sent ashore from  the transport and  the cruiser has sailed away.  The Ladrone islands are in the Pacific  ocean about 6,000 miles west from San'  Francisco.and about .1,500 miles east from  the Philippines. Thong., are 15 islands in  the group. - These islands are of volcanic  origin, have a warm, healthful climate  and comprise an area of 417 square miles  ' of fertile land. They were discovered by  Magellan in 1521 and called Las Islas do  las Ladrones���������the thieves' islands���������on account of a strong propensity to theft observed in the natives. In 1G67 they were  named the- Mariana islands, after Queen  Maria Anna.  The northern group, Gani, consists of  ten islands, now uninhabited. Five islands, of which four are inhabited, form  the southern group. These are Guahan  (Spanish, Guajan), Rota, Aguigan, Tinian  and Saypan. On Guahan, the largest and  southernmost of the group, is the only  town of the colony, San Ignacio do Agana,  with the fortified harbor of TJmata. This  is the placo at which the American flag  was probably raised.  The general surface of the southern islands is mountainous, but far inferior in  elevation to that of the northern group,  though the altitudes do not exeeeil 2,600  or 2,700 feet.  The present population of the Ladrones  consists of descendants from the original  inhabitants, called by Ifche Spaniards  Chamorros; of Tegal settlers from the  -Philippines and of a mixed race formed  by tho union of the Spaniards and the  C������ai"norr.psi:- The number of the original  inhabitants previous to the subjection of  the islands by the Spaniards in 1668 has  been variously estimated at from 40,000 to  60,000.  The Spanish conquest and the forcible  suppression of the natives reduced their  numbers to such an extent that in 1741  tho population was only '1,816. From that  date,' however, 'the population began to  increase owing to the introduction of new  colonists -from tho Philippines and in  1856 was 9,500. Recently an epidemic carried off one-third of the inhabitants. Since  1871 the population of the Ladrones has  been.roughly estimated at 8,000. All the  inhabitants speak Spanish.  ���������'The,islands are.govcrned by Spaniards  appointed by'the captain general of Manilla;- ��������� The laws which govern this once free  pep-pie -are..-not only made in a foreign  country,.but.: every opportunity is given  the governor to  increase  his private for-  SPANIARD AND CUBAN..  form the class of 'peninsulars,' while the  native Cuban Creoles are distinguished as  the 'insulars.' " It is supposed that about  one-fifth of the white people of Cuba are  peninsulars. They have monopolized salaried positions and managed public matters as they chose. - The distinction between the Creole and European Spaniard is  sharply maintained. '' The political connection with the mother country," says  John Fiske, the historian, "has long been  used simply to enable one-fifth of the  white population to treat the other four-  fifths as having no rights which are entitled to respect."

Boldness Seems to Be Something'Which  the Spanish Character Cannot Comprehend���������"Wild Adventures of filibustering.  Incarnate Deviltry Is a Spanish Trait.  "Revenge! That is what I enlisted for  and that is, what I am going - to have.  Once I fought for Cuba in Cuba, but Cuba  is free now, and hereafter I will fight for  the United States and revenge."  The speaker was J. W. Master, private  of Company D, First Infantry volunteers.  To a reporter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he told tho following story:  "Xo man can realize just the amount of  incarnate deviltry there is in a Spaniard  until ho has lived among them during war  times. The present trouble broke' out in  the spring of 1894. At that time I wag  working'in Havana at my trade. I am an  American engineer and machinist. Of  course there had been talk of rebellion for  a long time, but the fight began all of a  sudden.  "My first detail work.was carrying dispatches. For some months I went across  the country between  Havana and the in-  me at once, but others said it would be  necessary to go through the proper form  and 'try' me first. This was to be done  in the morning.  "That night I managed to get one hand  and arm loose, grab a sword from tho  guard as he passed me and lay him out  before he knew what struck him. I then  'cut my feet loose and made my way to my  companions. '==���������-���������  "We finally got our goods safely to tho  insurgent camp. On the way back to the  steamer, which was waiting for us in the  cove, I saw some of the most awful sights  that- ever any man beheld. The Spanish  soldiers had just been over the trail, and  their way .was marked by horror. Tho  sights were positively too horrible to de-  YANKEE GUNNERY.  DARING DASH FOR LIBERTY.  surgent camp unmolested. Then I acted  as scout for about four months. I went  into all sorts of places and kept our army  fully posted on the movements of the  Spanish forces. .  "My career as a scout came to an (. end  through treachery. A boy who had been  our friend was -bribed by the Spanish to  betray all he knew. Part of his information was tho fact that I was a scout. They  promptly offered a reward for my capture.  "It hanpened that I was inside the  ripanish lines at the time. The Spanish  soldiers were between me and my companions.  "Had I not accidentally seen the placard  offering a reward for my capture I surely  would have been arrested. As it was I  was on my guard., I tried to find a place  in tho lines where T could get through,  but thero was no break, and I knew I  could not make it.  '' When things reached this stage, I suddenly made up my mind that I would go  to Havana and boldly leavo the country.  The possibility of my doing this never  entered the heads of the' Spaniards, for  notice of the discovery of my identity had  not then been sent in the direction of Havana. So I reached tho city easily and  boarded a steamer for the United States  without even being suspected. I even conversed with the 'Spanish officers there and  told them something about the insurgents  that pleaseel them greatly.  "At this time they seemed to think that  the whole uprising was a sort of farce.  They laughed at the idea and said that  the.insurrection could be put down at any  lime���������just as soon as the Spanish officers  had made up their minds to stamp it out  in earnest.  "Although I got out of Cuba all right,  I had no idea of giving up Cuba's cause  of freedom. I turned to the work of filibustering. This was not a difficult thing  to do, as men were wanted for the work  and expeditions, were on foot all the time.  "Our second expedition had trouble ih  getting away. Our contraband cargo was  known to be in town and was being constantly watched by the authorities, so that  wc could not get it aboard. We had a  good load of provisions, but we needed  guns and pistols and powder and bullets.  "Finally wo had to resort to strategy.  Wo cleared the vessel for a place in the  West Indies, sailed to sea a few days and  turned about at night and sneaked back  to within a few miles of the harbor and  sent a boat ashore.  ."Everything was found to be just as we  wished. The authorities, believing we had  gone for good, had left no watchman  around the building where the ammunition was stored, and the night was as dark  as pitch. We hired a tug, and in less than  one hour we had our stuff aboard. The  rest was easy. The munitions of war were  put on boarel our vessel at sea and the tug  sneaked back to her moorings without  even waking up "the policeman. We then  went to the port for which we had cleared,  dumped a few sacks of rice on the dock,  authenticated our papers and cleared for  the place from which we had started.  "We landed our stuff all right. While  we were at work we peeped through the  trees and saw the Spanish gunboat that  had chased us the day before go steaming  slowly bafck, most likely wondering where  we were.  "On this expedition it was necessary for  me to join the land party to copvey the  goods to the insurgent camp. The trip  was one long series-of skirmishes. There  was fighting nearly every day, and one  day I missed my companions and was captured by the Spaniards.  "Some of the soldiers wantetl to shoot  scribe.  Whenever I remember them I havt  an overpowering feeling for revenge.  "On our fourth expedition I was cap-  ture-d again. This time we loaded our  vessel and got away without any trouble.  We even reached our landing place all  right and had part of our cargo ashore.  Then suddenly we saw a Spanish gunboat  heading for us "and knew that our only  hope lay in putting out to sea and making  a run for it. This was on Juno 17, 1896.  "Leaving all but 14 of our crew of 41  to guard the cargo, wo steered for thc open  sea and succeeded in keeping out of range  for about seven miles. Then we had to  surrender or be sunk. So wo surrendered  and were taken to Matanzas and thrown  into horrible dungeons.  "After being ironed in Matanzas for  about two weeks wo were taken to Morro  Castle, where we found things even worse.  Each man was kept alone constantly in  the dark, damp cells, unvcntilated and  without any plumbing. Wo wero given  no bedding whatever, and cleanliness was  absolutely impossible. Wo were forced to  simply live in filth.  " While imprisoned hero our only food  was tortillas and foul water. "Everyday-  tho guards came in to tie us so tho head  guard could.venture in and. inspect us.  This individual had a habit of prodding  'me with his sword, and I carry several  wounds today, the result of hiscruclty.  "Just let mo ever lay hands on' him  while I am able to defend 'myself. I will  have revenge to the utmost.  "Through some diplomatic arrangement  all wc prisoners were sent' to Madrid; tho  intention being to try us over thero and  do the executing in - tlie prosenco of the  people so as to make a general impression  that the administration was really doing  , something in'the Cuban war.  "But for some reason tho trial never  came off, nor were we allowed communication with the outside world. Wo asked  to see the' American minister, but were  only, laughed at for making tho request.  "We lay in this Madrid prison for  months, each day our hopes growing less  and less, but we were, not without friends,  and they were working strenuously for us  all the while. Cuban friends wero doing  all in their power to free us. , They did  not resort to any diplomacy either..  "In this case our good angel was a  young Cuban girl named. Leila Moreita.  At the time she was only 19 years old and  filled with enthusiasm for tho freedom of  her country. No work was too hazardous  for her, and, be it said, sho has never failed yet.  "In order to release us her first work  was to go to Madrid, where sho was a perfect stranger, and find out our whereabouts. She passed herself off as a young  girl from the country, and nobody suspected that sho was not Spanish.  "After locating our prison she proceeded  to get acquainted with our guards. With  the night watch sho became very friendly  anel often came to the prison at night to  have a chat with him.      c  "He pointed out our cells. When she  had all the- .information 6he desired, sho  laid her plans.  "One night she visited him, and after a  short time bid him goodby. Ho thought  she had left the prison, but she only went  down the corridor and concealed herself in  a corner. There she waited until the  guard, as Spanish guards will, bobbed his  head and fell into a doze.  '' Then Leila stole up gently and held a  bottle of chloroform under his nose. In a  few moments he .was stupefied.  "Hastily .taking the keys from tho sen so-  less guard, our brave deliverer soon unlocked the prison doors and led us out to  liberty. t She had everything prepared for  us and soon had us safely and comfortably  housed.  "Of-course our escape was discovered  the next day. The guard was sent to  prison for a number of years. Xo particular search was made for us, because a  steamer for America had left the very  night we escaped from the prison, and it  was thought we were surely on board. '  "So we were forced to make quite a  visit in Madrid. We left the city under  assumed names and in the most public  manner."  His Wisdom.  Mrs. Pefcter���������Did you see that?

The Tactics at Manilla Ho New Thing In;  the' History of the American Navy.  The old skipper unburdened his patriotic soul the other day on the subject'  of Yankee genius and valor in naval  warfare. Ho had an audience of youngsters who felt dimly that they wero the-  scions of a great nautical race, and whciv-  he got through with his palaver thoy  were quito sure of it.  "In the war of 1812," the old  skipper said, "we  proved even to the satisfaction of the,-British admiralty that in  a duel of warships noise, smoke, smash- ���������  and splinters were  inferior  to  skillful,  maneuvering and quick, strong - and accurate firing���������otherwise, gunnery.

Those victories of ���������  ours made the  battles of  tho Nilo  and ,  Trafalgar appear what they really were-  ���������brutally stupid. ..'   l  "Wheu our frigate Constitution met-.  the brave   Guerriere  and  the Java in  single combat, it was a struggle of keen  intelligence against brute force and arrogant  ignorance.    The Guerriero  was  then  the crack'frigate of the  British-  navy, and   the first, one in SO .years to- -  strike her flag in a naval duel'" between  single ships.   The great disparity of the  loss in killed and wounded���������five times  as many on the Guerriere as on the Constitution���������astounded  the naval world.  Our sea fights set all Europe  thinking,  just as our fights in this war may do.  It was many years, however, before thes  English  acknowledged   that ���������tho   real  causo of their defeats in the war of 1812  was the superiority of' the gunnery on  the American ships. It was their excuse-  at the time of the war, and many years  after, that the  British,  tars had been  simply  overpowered   by the American .  ships and the weight of their guns.  The  true  explanation   was   that   we were  marksmen.' .'"< <��������� ,.  '' At the siege of Yorktown in! our Revolutionary war tho deadly accuracy of  Washington's artillery fire astonished-  the European artillorists. 'Your progress in artillery is wonderful,' said the  gallant Lafayette to Major Shaw. 'General Knox personally superintended the  serving of tho guns. Ho was bred in the  woods of Maine and was a born artillerist. 'You firo bettor than tho French,  upon my word you do,' said Lafayette  as Major Shaw modestly protested.  "In all cases except one American  gunnery in tho war of 1812 was superior to the British. That exception was  in the case of the British frigate Shannon, which whipped and captured tho  American f rigato Chesapeake. It was an  illustration of stealing an opponent's  trumps and playing them back at him.  The Shannon's guns were fittod with  American sights and her crew wero ex-.  ercised after tho American fashion. The  commander of tho Shannon paid particular attention to gunnery. In fact, he  was the only officer in tho British navy  who did at that time. Tho bravo Lawrence who, as Decatur said afterward,  'had no more dodge in him than the  mainmast,' dashed recklessly against  the deadly fire of ' tho Shannon. After  receiving the Shannon's first broadside  the Chesapeake was out of it.  "As lato as 1830 the American gun  /sight was considered the best device  known to naval artillerists. It was introduced into naval gunnery by the Yankees in 1771.

"You see, she eaid, "I did riot like the  idea of quitting tho country because of a  little difference of opinion between myself and an old idiot like Verage.

'' Well, go on.''  He laughed' softly, "Even so.

"Well, as usual, I rounds myself in  luck, and if I" had been a nice young  widow, might havo taken summer quarters in the snug littla village of Beliair."  "Not being a widow", rola'to your experience as a rusticating gentleman at  large.

'  "More would be safer/" sho smiled, "if  tho Peri can koop aloof from Paraeliso so  long."  "How would the Peri fancy taking up  herr permanent, abode outsido tho walls of  Paradise:-"'  She removed tho fragrant gildod cigar  in mininture from between two rosy,  pursod-up lips,.and surveyed him in mute  astonishment.  ( "Provided," ho prccecdoil, .eol'y,  "provided sho found a countrv home,  hank account, and equipage to heir liking,  with everything hor own way, and ample  opportunities for trips to Paradise, milking visits to hor brother and her ci y  friends���������and a fine prospect of soon becoming solo possessor of said  mansions-bank stock, etc. ?"  Sho placed the tiny wood once mire between her lips,and sondine- up porfumed,  curling littlo-volumes of smoku, settled  herself moro comfortably, and said, nonchalantly, "that depends; further particulars, please."  It was wonderful how these two understood each other. She knew that ho had  for hor a pirn fully matured, and wasting no time in needless qustionines,  waited to hear the gist of the whole matter, assured from past experience that he  would suggest nothing that would be an  undertaking unworthy of her talent, and  ho know that sho would weigh his suggestions while they were being made.and  bo ready with hor decision at the close.  Long  had   thoy plotted and  prospered  together, these two Bohemians of mos  malevolent type'; and successfully and  oft played intei each other's hands.  Xever yet had the good fortune of the one  been devoid of profit to tbe other; knowing this, each felt safe in accepting unquestioned, the suggestions of tho other;  and because of this, she felt/assured now'  that, in this present scheme, thero was  something to be gained for him as well  as herself.  When, tho looker-on wonders idly at the  strength of ties such as those which  bound together these two, and the length  of their duration,' he has never considered  their nature���������tho similarlity ' of tastes,  similarity of pursuits, .and tho crowninc  act of the mutual benefit derived from  such association.  Find a man who lives by' successful  manipulations of the, hand-book of  chance, and who bows to the deity of  three aces; who finds victims in minified places, ' and, whoso' most hazardous  scheme 'is surest of success; who walks  abroad tho admired of his contemporaries, who envy hirti his position as fortune's favorite in proportion as thoy ply  their own similar trade'near tho foot ol  the ladder of chance, who shows to mon  the dress and manner of a gentleman, nnd  to the angels the heart of a fiend���������and  you will find that man aided and abetted,  uphold and applauded'by a .woman, his  fitting companion by nature or ed uca-  tion. She is unscrupulous' as he, daring  as he, finding him victims that his. arm  could not reach; plying the finer branch  of a dangerous but'profitable trade; sharing his prosperity, rescuing from adversity ; valued because , necessary, and,  knowing her value,' fearine- no rival.  Cora was beautiful in-Davlin's eyes',  and secure in his affections, because she-  was valuable, even necessary, to him.  Ho cared for her because in so doing ho  was caring for'himself, and placing any  "card" "in her hands was,only the surest  means of enlarging his own pack. - While  she, for whether a woman is good or bad  she is ever, "the slave of her own heart,  recognizing the fact of the mutual benefit  resulting from' their comradeship, and.  improving, in her character of a*woman  of thc world, every opportunity to profit  by him, yet she saw in him the one man  who possessed her'love. -. Though the life  she had led had worn out all tho ronmn ���������  tic tenelencies of her ^ nature, and-had  turned the "languishing offhor oye" into  sharp glances in the direction of the  main chance, still she lavished upon hiin  the besc of her heart, and- held his' interest ever the equal of her own. - After  the manner of,such, thoy were loyal to  each other.  "Then," pursued Lucian, "listen, and  a tale I will unfold."  In his own way, he proceeded to describe the intended victim, his home, his  wealth, his state of solitude, together  with the ' facts he had gathered up here  and there relative' to his leading char'ac-.  teristics and weaknesses, whereby he  might be successfully ^manipulated by  skilled hands. The boldness erf his plan  made e.Tan' Cora start, and instead of her  usually ��������� ready decision and answer, she  favored him with a wondering, thoughtful stare.       * v,      "*    -  "You see," concluded Lucian. "ho  can't live forever at the worst, and tho  estate is a handsome one. You , could  easily make yourself queen absolute) of  the situation, and go and come at your  own sweet will. I think as a good  brother I should be a magnificent success, and au ornament to your country  mansion in thc lazy summer."  "And'if I don't approve of the speculation after a trial, 1 can commit suicido  or vanish;" Cora said, moditatingly.  "Just so," laughed he; "and take the  spoons. "  "You aro sure there are no incumbrances-, perfectly sure of that?" she  questioned.       ��������� '  "Perfectly sure. Thero was a stepdaughter, but she ran away with some  foreigner;" here ho smiled, and veiled  his eyes, less she should read aright his  expression. "He would not givo her a  penny, or a crust of bread, wore she to  return. He hated her from her earliest  day; but she is not likely to re-appear in  any case. "  "If she should,   you might marry   her,  you know," she suggested maliciously.  whole being briefly this:  Cora would drive at early elawn to a  suburban station, and from thence go by  rail to a village midway between the  city and her final destination; and thero  await her luggage, ana the arrival of  Lucian. He would join her shortly, and  proceed with her to,BelIair, in his character of brother; see her comfortably settled^ and leave her to her new undertaking.  And thus it was that in tho gray of  morning a veiled lady, sweet-voiced and  elegant in manner, stopped from a close  carriage at a little wayside- station, and  6pod away at- tho heels of tho iron horse.  And thus it was that Lucian Davlin,  re-appearing in Bellair,"and li'stoning iu  well-simulated surprise to cho story of  the sudden disappearance of John  Arthur's step-daughter,'effectually put to  flight any idea���������forming in tho brains of  tho few who knew, or conjectured, thac  these two had met���������that ho had aught to  do with her mysterious flitting. In  truth, nono savo old Hagar know of tho  frequency of choir, clandestine meetings,  and sho nover breathed to others the  thoughts and suspicions that haunted  her brain.  , ���������  And thus it was, too, that Cora  Weston, ih hor now roll of. languishing  widow, secluded carefully from thc vul:  gar gaze, heard never a word of Madeline's flight. And when, later, tho fact  was revealed to her, none save olil Hagar  could have named the precise date of tho  event.

In 1825) private  individuals secured from  Ferdinand VII the  first charter  for the  Bank of   Spain.     This charter was renewed  in 1856, and  again - in 1874.     The  present charter expires in 1921, if the bank  survives until that time.    When granted-  in 1874, it was intended that it should expire in 1904, but tho government, while  not recognizing the institution as a bona    ���������  fide part of tho crown, at tho same time  has continually mado it a "convenience" , '  for securing royal funds  and willingly ���������  extended tho charter limit 17 years.  Tho capital of the  bank is limited to-  150,000,000 pesetas. A peseta is equivalent*  to 19.3 cents and tho practical equivalent  of,a franc.    The French monetary system  was introduced in Spain  in 1859 and tho  old Spanish namo peseta was retained for  tho unit (tho franc) and the peseta  is di- -  vided" into 100 centimes.'

SPAIN'S HISTORIC BANK.  right to act as an agent for the crown and**1  to issue notes the crown reserved, to itself-'  the right of coinage.    The Bank of Spairv  may issue paper as a  promise to pay, but'-  cannot produce  either silver or gold coin-  saveas the government dictates.   In addition  to the  gold  coins which  the crown  has  placed  in  circulation there is tho 25 '  peseta piece of   8.06451 grams and -900-  1,000 fine.    The ratio of silver to gold is  \bxA to 1.     Silver coinage was suspended  in  1878, except on  government accounc.  The Bank of Spain may circulate its noccs  in  Cuba, Porco  Rico and the Philippine  islands if it wishes, buC has noC done so Co  any great extent.  The Bank of Spain sinco 1874 has enjoyed a monopoly of issuing notes. Tho  government does not share in tlie profits  of the bank and is not a stockholder, but  it does not hesitate to make use; erf it  whenever occasion demands, and tire vory  recent large increase in note issue's hava  been due to the demands ot tho crown.  Tne commercial operations of the bank-  have been  practically subordinated te> rho-  issue of paper money to cover tho neveis ot  the government, and  as a conscqiie-nce-ns.  early as in March, 1SU7. gold in Spam was.  at a premium ot 20 per cent     Specie payments were suspended by the bank m tlio-  early days  of the  Cuban  trouble (lssio),  and  in July, 1896, the  premium on  gold,  was 19 per cent. '  The impending fall of Spain as a conr-  mercial power, her certain decline to tho  position of a fourth rate" power, takes  with it tlie fortunes of the Bank of Spain,  an institution which has never see.-tiri.-el  recognition from other nations save-  where, as in the case of France and (Jer-  many, heavy loans were mado. and which.-  after all is said, is anel has been a private*  and speculative .institution'bolstered tip  by a government unable to longer secure  credit by direct application to thc money  loaners of the world.
