LONDON. Nov. 2. In well Informed cir
cles hero It Is not believed Spain has signed
the contracts referred to In the Daily ChronIcle -
Iclo today as having been concluded last
week with an Important firm of British ship
builders , by which Spain acquires some cru'is-
cra , arme.l with quick-firing guns , which the
firm mad nearly completed for another gov
ernment. It Is known that the Spanish gov
ernment recently endeavored to purchase war
shlpti from Drltlsb shipbuilders , but the ne
gotiations failed on account of Spain's Ina
bility to pay cash , and it mis understood that
her agents then began looking for bargains
In war ships which other countries were
Some of these countries are building ships
In Kngland , nmoiig them being Chile , and
it IB supposed the government of tint repub
lic Is willing to 'transfer to Spain thrco
cruisers , which have been practically com
pleted by the Armstrongs , The latter , how
ever , are only willing to sell the three
crulscm to Spain for cash.
The Thompsons finished six torpedo de
stroyers for Spain a year ago. The firm de
livered two of the boats and Is holding the
others under the pretext of finishing them.
but the general supposition Is that the
Thompsons arc really holding the destroyers
for payment. One of the foremost financiers
of this country asserts that Spain la unable
to ralso more money abroad and It Is
thought likely that tthc- can procure war
ships on the promise of paying fcr them
by money she may raise later on by In
ternal loans. This refers to the statement
of the Dally Chronicle that when the ques
tion of finance was raised by the con
structors of the cruisers which Spain would
llko to purchase thu Spanish minister of
marine said that In the event of war the
Spanish government could count upon rais
ing a largo Internal war loan.

FRANKFORT , Ky. , Nov. 2. Election day
was ushered In by a bloody encounter on trio
[ streets between republicans and democrats
I at 1 o'clock this morning , resulting In the
death of three men and the wounding of two
more. The dlfllculty began by Frank Egbert ,
republican , organising a party to head oft n
party of democrats under the leadership of
Ilcn Marshall , who , Egbert asserted , had
taken a number of negroes to the country to
prevent their voting today. Egbert , It Is said ,
with his party awaited Marshall's return and
fired on him from nmbush , wounding htm and
Smldh seriously nnl slightly Injuring Alex
ander Grahnm , u negro.
Deputy Sheriff Dcakins then organized a
posse and attempted to arrest Egbert iind his
party. The latter appeared on the street ,
brandishing their revolvers. The two parties
met and began firing. Fifty shots or moro
wcro fired and Egbert was Instantly killed ,

killed , and Walter Gains , n negro , severely
hurt. It Is reported that ho 1m * died.
Mayor Julian today organized a largo body
of special policemen In view of the excite
ment , ns ho fears further trouble at the
polls , owing to bitter feeling between , the
workers of the two parties and the friends
of the men killed and Injured. The merest
trlllo of a quarrel would bo likely to result
In a resort to firearms.
The doid :
FRANK EGBERT , republican politician.

Egbert's crowd.
JOHN SMITH , driver of the democratic
wagon lu which the negroes were hauled to

RAPID CITY , S. D. , Nov. 1. ( Special. )
"It will bo hard to recognize the Ulack
Hills country In a few years , " said a
wealthy mine owner recently , "providing the
present prosperity continues. An examina
tion of the books of the registers of deeds
for the past few months In the different
counties shows thousands of dollars Invested
where dollars were last year. Ono good
feature Is noted this year In the purchases
they have been made by capitalists who
have money to not only pay cash for the
property hut also have large amounts with
which to make thorough developments of the
property which means the distribution of
thousands of dollars among the laboring
classes and the business men of tlio cities.
It Is an astonishing thing , this paying out
of over $200,000 a month In labor alone by
the different mining companies In the north
ern hills. This money is nil spent at home.
The wages of the miners and day laborers In
the Illadc Hills arc higher than In any
other mining district In the United States ,
Alaska cxcepted. Moro mineral land has
been bonded and sold this summer than ever
before for a like period of time. FarmIng -
Ing land has Increased In value by from
10 to 15 per cent and some sales have been
made this fall that equal down-east
prices , A few years ago farming was
abandoned almost entirely but since the Ir
rigation question has been thoroughly In
vestigated and put Into practical use there
has been a general revival In the demand
for farm lands. Real estate men report
numerous Inquiries for farm lands and other
kinds of properties. The Black Hills Is see
ing the best times since the 'Iron Hill' days
In 1S81 when everything -was on a boom.
There Is no boom In the hills now but every
thing Is being built on a firm financial foun
dation and Is being built to stay. "

I'leitMiint lor Foreign Visitor * .
The largo number of tourists who In re
cent yenrs have visited Japan have added
considerably to the revenue of the country.
It has been calculated that every visitor
spent In his travels not less than $500 , and
the aggregate result of the arrivals from
foreign parts meant between $2.000,000 and
$3,000,000 to Japanese brcadearners. Most of
this fell Into the hands of curio dealers , who
palmed oft Inferior goods to Ignorant west
erners , and of the guides who acted as their
agents. i
To remedy this abuse a. society was formed
In 1S93 , on the Initiative of u number ol
Japanese noblemen and gentlemen , assisted
by several tallueutlal foreign residents. It
called the Kl-hm-Kat and its
was - - , objects
were to extend a welcome to foreign tour
ists and to render them every assistance
during their stay In Japan. It alms nt
bringing within , the tourists' reach moans
of accurately observing the features of the
country and the characterlctlcs of the people
ple ; visiting public buildings arad places
famous for scenic beauties ; seeing objects
of art , both ancient and modern ; entering
Into social and commercial relations with
the people ; In short , affording them all
facility and convenience toward the accom
plishment of their alms , thus Indirectly
promoting , In however small a degree , the
cause of International Intercourse and
trade. Arrangements are made for the pro
vision of trustworthy guides and facilities
given for travel and sightseeing. Entrance
la obtained to all the government estab
lishments and to places of Interest In differ
ent parts of the country. Introductions
are provided to manufacturers and mer
chants , so that , although the main object
of the society Is of a. social .nature. It maybe
bo of great service to these who go to In
vestigate commercial nnd Industrial condi
tions. Accordlnig to the rank or personal
record of a tourist the society wlil Intro
duce him at his request to any Japanese
nobleman or gentleman , If the circum
stances seem to warrant such an Introduction.
In the case of a distinguished tourist the
society might make arrangements at Its own
cost to entertain him , so that Its members
and frlentlo may make bis acquaintance.

A Xervy Attempt at Trnlit Itoliliery
I'olli-il liy the Ill-ill.emim.
"An old railroad man who has seen a
good deal of service In the west , " as ho Is
described by the New York Sun , whllo chat
ting with a reporter of that paper about the
New York Central wreck , related a revised
story of the attempt to hold up the eastbound -
bound Overland Flyer on the Union. Pacific ,
near Rawllns , Wyo. , In the fall of 1SSS.
"It was undcrstocd , " ho says , "that there
was about $250,000 coming east In the ex-
prctss car of the Overland Flyer that day.
Overland Flyer No. 2 , as she Is known on
the train schedule of the Union Pacific was
tlio biggest train on the road , the only fast
through passenger from the Pacllle coast.
She usually carried from nine to eleven
coaches. Including the sleepers , and was al
ways heavily londcil , o that road agents at
tempting to rob her had to reckon on holding
up or standing off a gco.1 many men , and In
that country , where nearly every man
carries a gun , It was a risky piece of work ,
"Four-miles this side of Hawllns there was
a tank where No. 2 used to stop every night
for water. She reached there about half
past 2 In the morning. The night on which
this attempt at robbery waa made was a
clear starlight night In August. No. 2 pulled
up at the tank and the engineer jumptd
down to oil around , whllo the fireman
climbed out on the torjder and turned on the
water. There were two baggage and ex
press cars , a smoker , two passenger coaches ,
and four sleepers on the -tialn. As the train
stopped the head brakcman dropped off , and.
with his lantern swinging on his arm , walked
over to the engine to gossip with the en
gineer. Just as ho set his lantern , down be
side the engineer two men rcee out of the
ditch with rifles. One commanded the en
gineer 'to threw up his hands and the other
covered the fireman , who was standing upon
the In the tender. Hut there was no
body to cover the brakcman. He was the
unlooked-for chance on which the nlans of
the train robbers went to pieces. Incidentally
It demonstrated the foolishness of endeavor
ing to pull off a holdup with rlllcs Instead of
revolvers. With a gun. as western men call
the revolver , ono man can cover several
others , but with a rifle ho can cover only
one , because anybody ean always tell whether
the rlllo is pointed at him or not.
"As 'these two men covered the engineer
and fireman the rest of the gang scattered
along down the train wcro beginning prcpi-
ratl'ins for the actual work of robbing the
express car. When the brakeman took In
the situation ho ejaculated softly to himself ,
'Well , this Is no place for me,1 and stooped
over as If to pick up his lantern. It hap
pened 'that right beside the lantern lay a
big lump of coal. The brakeman saw It ,
recognized his opportunity , and took It. Ho
picked up the lump of coal Instead of ths
lantern , and , as ho straightened up , swung
round , and with all his force hit the fellow
who was covering the engineer on the head
and staved In his skull. The man fell with
a groan , and the other 'bandit let go at
the fireman standing up on the tender.
"The engineer took In the situation In an
Instant. Ho dropped his oil can and jumped
Into his cab , and , with his heavy torch ,
smashed his cab lights. The fellow win
had been covering the fireman shot once at
the engineer and then 'turned to the 'brake-
man , who , Instead of following the engineer
Into the cab , had started to run , back to thu
front platform of the ilrat baggage car. Just
as the brakcman climbed up on the car a
bullet from the train robber's rifle caught
him through the hip , but ho hung on.
"At the first shot from the man at the en
gine the other fellows along down the train
opened up Indiscriminately , shooting
'through the car windows. The engineer
wasted not a second. As soon as his lights
were out , so that ho save the robbers no
mark , ho tipped over his rovcrso lover and
opened thp throttle. He realized It
was possible that 'the robbers had placed
some norl of obstruction on the track ahead
of him nnd the best thing for him to do
was to back ; besides It was nearer to Raw
llns than 'the station ahead. So back bo
went ns hard as he could go , with the train
robbers tiring as long as they thought they
| had any cliinco of hitting anybody.
\ "When the train pulled Into Ituvllns the
) bralteman was found banging to the first
platform of the baggage car. The liremnn
I had crawled down ovi-r the coal Into the cab
before they got to Rawllns. Ills right wrist
was broken , and the brakemnn's right hip
was 'broken. ' That was practically all the
damage -that wan done , except some bullet
holes In the cars. U Just happened that not
n passenger was hit. They were a mighty
frightened lot that got to Rawllns. It It
hadn't been for the coolness and qulcknesii
of the brakeman the probability Is that the
thieves would have got money In the cx
press car , as well as the valuable * of the
passengers. That was Just about ns nervy
a It wvnild have been 'to try to wreck and
rob the Ihiffalo special. "

In days gene by the proprietor of a
chemist's shop close by Temple Dar , In Lon
don , enjoyed the monopoly of making cltrlo
ncld. llo employed no workmen ; the mystic
operation by which he- grew rich was con-
lined to himself. Ono day , having locked the
doors and blinded tlio windows , the chemist
went to dinner. A chimneysweep , or boy
disguised as such , wldo-awake on chemistry ,
was on the watch. Following the man to
Charln.R Cross , to make sure that ho woulit
not return that day , the sooty philosopher
hied 'rapidly back to Temple liar , ascended
the low building , dropped down the flue , saw
all ho wanted , and returned , carrying with
him the mystery. The monopoly of the In
ventor was gone. A few months after the
price of the article was reduced four-fifths.
The poor , man was heartbroken nnd died
sl-ortly afterward , Ignorant of the trick by
which ho had beenvictimized. .
The history of cast steel prcssnts a cu
rious Instance of a secret atealthlly obtained
under 'the cloak of an appeal to phllan-
throphy. In 17CO there lived nt Attcrcllff a
watchmaker named Huntsman. Ho became
dlssatlslled with the watchsprlngs In use
and sot himself to the task of making thorn
homogeneous. Ho succeeded ; his steel became -
came famous and about 1770 a largo manu
factory of this peculiar steel was established
at Attercllff. The process was wrapped In
mystery , faithful men- were hired , largo
wages paid 'and stringent oaths administered.
One midwinter night , ns the tall chimneys
of the Attercllff steel works belched forth
their smoke a traveler knocked at the gate.
It was bitterly cold and the stranger
awakened no suspicion. Moved by motives
of humanity , the foreman let him In , Feign
ing to bo worn , out with cold , the fellow
nank upon the floor and BOOH appeared to bo
asleep. That , however , was far from his In
tention ; he saw workmen cut bars of steel
Into bits , place- them Into crucibles and
thrust the crucibles Into the furnace. The
flro was urged to Us extreme heat until the
steel was melted , and then drawn out and
poured In liquid form Into molds. Mr. Hunts ,
