the Itolinl of CollNtriletlon.
Lieut R. P. Hobson will appear today
before Capt O Neil and other members of
the board of construction, at the Navy
Department, and give his views In dctnll
concerning the feaslbllltj of reclaiming
the sunktn warships of Cervera's squad
ron, with approximate estimates of the
cost to this Government.
He Is confident that the Cristobal Colon
can be saved He believes it Is possible
to raise the Vlzcaja, although she is bad-lj-
damaged bj explosions and fire, and
her bow almost blown awaj bj torpedoes
The Oquendo Is almost a hopeless wreck,
but the Itelna Mercedes, which was sunk
bj- the Spaniards as an obstruction at the
mouth of Santligo harbor, can be saved.
Lieut. Hobson sajs more air pumps will
be required to raise the Colon than were
used on the Maria Teresa, as air will have
to be forced into the uninjured air com
partment of the Colon, besides Into the
manj air bags which will be emplojed In
the notation process The Colon cost the
Spanish government about $1,000,000, and
the lieutenant regards her as a "magnifi
cent product of marine architecture."

AN EXPOSITION jSENSATION.
i
It In In Tnll Illimt, anil Ileiam With
.i-iuiiit ilnnngerljur.lt',, Arreiit.
Omaha. Oct. 30 Cultera sensation has
developed In the department of exhibits,
growing out of the arrest of II. B. Hardt,
assistant manager of the department and
general superintendent, on two warrants
charging, him with forgery. He will be
arraigned tomorrow.
Hardt denies the charage and In turn
declares that he will make some counter
charges tomorrow that will cause mora
of a sensation In exposition circles than
his arrest. What these eounter charges
are can only be surmised, but the general
impression Is that Hardt will charge
crookedness In other departments, and,
at least, claim leniency because he Is not
alone gulltj-
In the meantime a large number of ex
hibitors, representing all parts of the
countrj-, are crjlng- fraud and demanding
a rehearing and a readjustment of
awards, which they boldly claim Hardt
manipulated for value received last week.
AZ1EC TREASURE.
-Miner nnil Otlicrn In tlexleo Con
tinue lit Sen nil for It.
(from the Niu Orleans Picajun-)
"The Interview- In the Plcajunc this
morning with Capt Evans, the vciemn
Mexican miner." said u drummer last
nignt nt me Grunewald Hotel, "reminds
me of a verj Interesting story I heard
when In Mexico some months ago. You
have heard the old legend of the fabu
lous gold burled somewhere In the mo.n
tains bj the Aztecs about the time of the
Invasion of the. countrj- by the Spaniards,
when thej robbed thff people and swept
awaj' Into their own coffers all the go den
treasures of the unfortunate Aztecs.
Prescott's version of this storj- Is the
best, and there Is certalnlj more truth
than fancj In the legend You remember
there hud been a large expedition Sent
out from the Citj- of Mexico bj the Mon
tezumas Into the gold countrj'. for the
iurpoo of gathering a vast amount of
the precious metnls for the ornairenta
tlon of new- temples that were being con
structed The record reads In tho legend
that this expedition was just starting
back to the capital when word was
brought It that tho nation was In the
hands of Spanish robbers. Thej were
Instructed to burj- their treasures and re
turn to their homes emptjMiandd, rather
than to give the additional booty to the
followers of Corlcz. The gold expedition
followed Instructions, burled Its treas
ure" and returned to the capital Cortez
was- waiting for them, for he had advice
of their mission. He was so enraged ati
their empt j -handed return that the en
tire partv was ordered killed.
"Well ever since 'that daj, at stated
times, miners and others have sought for
tho treasure Many diligent seatches
.have been made, but all have proven fu
tile. The secret of 'the hiding place was
lost with the death 6f those who buried
it. When I was in Mexico, traveling In
the Interior some miles from the citj, I
met with an American nnmed Miles. He
was from ome point in Missouri He had
three partners, Mexicans, ore of whom
was an Indian and they were just start
ing for some point in the Interior, where
the Indian said the famous treasure was
hidden I have never heard a word from
the expedition Miles was confident th it
thej would find the ore.rfor It seems he
had" good reason to lel!ee that the In
dian knew what he was talking -about.
"Miles said that the'pla'ce whither thej
wero destined was within fifty miles of
Mexico Citj-, within the-range of the sur
rounding mountains. During the davs of
the Aztecs there was n constant warfare
going on between the people of the Mon
tezumas, living within this range, and the
tribes living without that limit, so much
so that any effort to penetrate bejond was
met with armed reslstanee Hence, he
reasoned, as there was verj little, If any,
communication between the Montezumas
and the outside world, all the gold mmes
from which the ast wealth of the Aztecs
was drawn must be within a few miles of
the citj-. Miles believed that some day
these old mines would be rediscovered,
and would prove as wealthy as they evl
dentlj were before the Spanish plundered
the countrj-. This treasure, burled so
many jears ago, tho old Indian said, wa3
now buried In the waters of a small lake
In the Interior This lake was the des
tination of Miles and his partj-. I have
watched the rapers closely for some ac
count of the expedition, but have never
seen a "ord nbaut It."
This man, spending several months of
every jear In Mexico, Is convinced that
there aro vast gold mines somewhere in
tho interior, close to the City of Mexico
"I remember," he continued, "one daj- I
was In the store of a small countrj" mer
chant, and an old Mexican came In,
bought a few goods, and, taking the mer
chant off to one side, handed him a small
tobacco sack filled with gold dust. I learn
ed afterward from the merchant that he
had many customers of this kind, who
camo In quletlv. made their purchases and
alwajs paid for them In gold dust. Bui
ho told me thej could not be persuaded
nor bribed Into givlng.awaj the secret of
the precious metal's location. He told me
that there sometimes came Into his town
whole bands of Mexican Indians, all hav
ing gold dust, with which they made their
purchases. Hut thy show the bitterest
spirit toward all who make Inquiries re
lative to the sources of their crude
wealth."

"No," said Mr. Horn; "I don't be
lieve In sensational or misleading
advertising. It doji't pay In the
long run. Bogus telegrams, as
signment sales, sheriff sales, or the
other numerous 'fakes' resorted to,
to stir up a temporary boom, are not
In my line. I don't want a customer
today and lose him forever. I want
him to come again to be my constant
patron, so I make every effort to give1
him the best value his monej' can buj'.
Result is he brings to me another cus
tomer. That's my best proof of giving
supremo satisfaction all round. If. I
didn't do right by my customers, I'd
still be In my old basement, G13 r. but
when people found out what really
good values they were getting, I was
llterallj- squeezed out, bj an overflow
of business," "And," continued Mr.
Horn, "mv- present premises are becom
ing cramped, for my trade Is steadily on

A KICH BEGGAK.
htorj of a Pnur ttiiKiifui A Iu JInile
Ills Fortune Hi-re.
(From the civ York Timis.)
Charles Burkanltz, thlr-lKe cars
old, one of New York's -wealthiest and
most inlluential beKgar', was sent to the
Iland for three months e"sterda b
Magistrate Olm-ted In the AVest Side
Court. The eharce against him was a
grancy, Jet the m!hapen and withered
little man Is said to be worth all the nay
from $14,000 to 20,000.
Burkawltz was arrested Monday een
!rs at Broadway and Fift -ninth Street,
where lie was busily engaged grinding out
ancient melodies on that beggars' most
precious friend, the bijou hand organ,
v hile his lghtles ejes turned appeallng
ly upward with the far-away stare of the
blind. Being arrested Is no new etperl
ence for Bukawjiz He has made many a.
journe to the Island In the course of his
busy life. He Is known to half the po--Hcemen
In the city. They know that hy
a strict attention to business and the ap
plication of approed methods, he has
built up a lucrative trade In his own par
ticular line, and they regard him as a
shining example of w hat thrift and enter
prise will accomplish, een In the beg
ging profession
Burkawltz was brought to this country
from Kussla about fifteen jears ago by
hls uncle, who hoped to use him as n re
munerative object of charity. He hadn't
a copeck to bless himself with at the
time. Hb was descended, however, from
a. long line of famous mendicants and In
herited traits In good stead In new fields.
The only external equipment -possessed
by the bo was a peculiarly repulsive ap
pearance, his hair growing far down on
his forehead, as if he had been born a
helpless Idiot. He did not have even a
withered arm or leg.
His uncle, who was a prosperous beg
gar In this clt. Installed the boy at
Fourteenth Street and Third Avenue. This
claim had long been considered by the
beggars to be practically worked out, but
joung Burkawltz went to work with a
will, and soon had the buslncs on a pay
ing basis. He supplemented his meager
natural equipment by feigning blindness.
He woald roll his ejes upward, so that
only the whites could be seen He subse
quently enlarged the scope of his opera
tions by dlsplaving a suck of villainously
bad lead pencils, and thereby practically
Introduced the display of beggars' pen
cils In the lower p-irt of the city.
Burkawltz soon withdrew from partner
ship with his uncle, and went Into busi
ness for himself. Nine jears ago he met
with a fortunate accident. He fell down
three flights of stairs In the tenement In
which he was living and laid oen his
skull. He came to his senses and found
that he need not roll his eyes In order
to be sightless. He consulted eminent
surgeons, and they told him they could
perform an operation whereby he could
see again, but the rearranging of the
shattered skull would prciably destroy
his reason. So Burkawltz promptly de
elded to remain blind. He was sadly
maimed, and nfter that his bank account
grew- by leaps anfl bounds.
Ever progressive, he gave up his
stand on Fourteenth Street, and moved
up to the park entrance, equipped with

plaintive melodies. Here, with the cool

with the song of birds blending with his
music, he grew wealthy. His vacations
were spent on Blackwell's Island. He
sent to Russia for his cousin three vetrs
ago and married her. She died two
veirs ago and Burkawltz had no difficul
