I Imni twenty-five to thirty steniner
on each side. The Italians ms-iii to
have largely rliel on two sister
ironclad frigate, the IU d'ltalia and
tlie Uedi lNirtujful, built by Webb
in New York. They had also a
three turreted monitor of the Coles
system. One of the two ironclad
frigates was lVrsano's rlnKhi. The
Austrlans had no sliijw that were
ts(ual to the tw o larK) Italians. They
liad five or six ironclads. The Ferd
inand Max wits plated with from 4
to 4 3-4 Inches of iron.
The battle began with a cannonade

were inferior, closed in as rapidly as
possible, and under cover of the
smoke Isanti to use their ships tu

sunk. The lirachke rammed the

I we know that the Austrians obtained
the victory by the ram, and that the
Italians fought with their batteries
Many rams have own designed

all, until the Kahtadin. were either
rains and guntioHis or rams and
jsslo U.ats. It rcmainisl for Admir
al A milieu, 1'. S. X., to dsign a
vitws-l which should le a mm and
and nothing but a mm.
From this brief history certain de
ductions can le made. Perhaps the
facts most clearly shown is that two
mms acting in i-ows-rt are more than
a match for any one ship, even if ohe
lie far Mi-rior to either of the two.
This is demonstrated by the sinking
of the Indianola by the William II.
Webb and the usmi of the West,
the remarkable sumsss of the two
I'llett mms in fighting the eight
Confederate rams, June ti, 1st!-, and
by the sinking of the Yaruna by the
(lovernor Moore and the Stonewall
Another fact demou.stretisj is that
the relative effis't on the vessel struck
and on the ram is in projMirtion to
the sjsrssl of tl.it rain. Perhaps this
netsjed no demonstration, lielng a
plain principle of mechanics. Ppeed
and rapidity of revolution are of
course great consideration, and from
this we-may conclude that great size
is not essential, nt.r even desirable.
Or to put It In another way : A
million dollars spent in building two
rains carrying loo men each is a let
ter investment than if spent in the
construction of one ram carrylnl" -00
men. A moderate ize with good
pee is the ""t, aud in my opinion ,
the katahdin Is Just about right.
In rnr.l Hirhtlntr the success Or fllil-l
tiro is determined in so few minutes
the rush and struggle being so ex
citing and the danger apparently so
terrible that only the coolest headed
ofHoer are flttisl to command rams.
Uverything that can le done to
mask an attack or rams and
their evolutions is as important as in
torjssjo lioat attacks. Drilling in
ram handling tan, in the nature of
thing's little like real war, and so
it apsstrswise to have rams which
must depend on ramming only, for
if they have guns or torpedoes and
the crew is drilled to handle them
they will in the excitement of battle
depend 'instinctively on these weap
ons instead of on the ram. The

Planetary formation in our view i
Is dependent wholly uon ' two
forces, 'centrifugalw-driving away

drawing toward the center. Al
though the substance uic.'er end the
laws of gravitation and repulsion
seem infinite1 and co-ex tent, yet
there must have been a period when
attraction on substanoe-i natter pre
ceded the reieiling aj-tion, fur a

axial rotation la order to develop the
centrifugal force. The Sun exit-led
no doubt in its cometary state with
out axial rotation and as it glatv-ed
here and there through the im
menaity of space, gathering in the
various chaotic substances in its path
until it began to consolidate or
harden; then it was that the resist
ing medium iu space began to
influence fu movements. And the
nucleus cf the great comet began
slowly tJ revolve, and the farther It
moved through space the greater
axial telocity it acquired until it
becanr the electrical dynamo tbt
furnUies the electrical currents to

cenirifugal force of the Sun Is not as

Hon of prices for the hut fifty years,
and the rcults thereof enable us to
establish the incorrect n ess of tlie
proisjhition of the free ailver men.
Here arc some facts :
A fixed amount of labor earnest

This show s that gold is today .'17
s-r ts-nt. chea;ier than it was in
I860, and 4-'j per cent, cheaper than
it was in 149, measured by a fixed
amount of labor. Have tlie labor
ing men leen "ground dow n under
the heel of the money power, by the
appreciation of gold," as has been
wildly claimed? Hy no means ; in
fact, quite the reverse.
As to the value of commodities,
measured by the labor standard, this
report shows the position of the
"cheap money" men, that they have
not decreased in aleaolute value, "but
only because guld ha appreciated,"
to be equally false. It slows the
gold prices of 223 of the most impor
tant articles of daily use to have
declined 7.8 per cent, from ISfJO to
1191; while the decline, measured
in terms of labor," is very much
greater. In point of fact, there
should le no discussion of the tact of
their decline in absolute value,
bemuse every one knows that the
means of transtMirtnfion, have ren
dered it possible to produce them
cheaper. Now, to compare the
decline la the prices of commodities
since IsiX w ith the decline in ailver.
As statist above, they have declined
7.M per cent, since that year, while
ailver has decliinsl over 40 pr cent.
So thl refute- the assertion that
their prices and that of silvor have
remained relatively the same.
Hence it Ls cleur that gold has not
appreciated in value; and further
more, it follows that there Is enough
of it for the purre of businesM.
