ARTHUR K. HOUGHTON' . XAVA1 , ' 'Olt Sl'.VIX. Denial of Itunior tliat Ariiiainr lit is lloiiKliI In HiiKliiml. 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 building. 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. o\ TIMCUIIA.V QI AinliiiNMiiilur ( < > Ccniinnylrn HN | VilMVH III Vll'llllll , VIKNNA , Nov. 2.

( 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. " TWO Ol' THIS IMIISO.VKKS OAUOIIT.

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 co.il 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 th.it 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. " STOMSX SKI'IUSTS. Valuable Mium liu-l urliiir I'rneeNxca Siiri-eiilllloii.Hly Ohlaliieil. 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 , man's factory had nothing moro tn disclose ; the secret of making cast-steel had been , stolen. AVnler .11 llIii IliirnlH.
