The claims for the bounty are usually heard in a Prize Court.

Famous quotes containing the words money and/or prize:

    You are much surer that you are doing good when you pay money to those who work, as the recompense of their labour, than when you give money merely in charity.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    He saw, he wish’d, and to the prize aspir’d.
    Resolv’d to win, he meditates the way,
    By force to ravish, or by fraud betray;
    For when success a lover’s toil attends,
    Few ask, if fraud or force attain’d his ends.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
