THE MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER IS, 1913.
(Continued from page I)
of the time there was an advertise
ment in the Advertiser offering a
reward of one hundred dollars for
the return of the ring. I think the
day following the return of Mrs.
Lyman from the coast, a young
girl called in at Wichman's and
asked Merle Johnson the value of a
ruby ring she had on her finger.
Ho recognized it at once as the ruby
he had sold Mr. Lyman and ques
tioned the girl as to the ownership.
Her story was to the effect that her
young man had given it to her as
an engagement ring, and she want
ed to know if the stone was real.
Questioned as to where he got the
ring, the girl named a place where
it is not dillicult to get rid of jewel
ry if the price is right. That
man was asked to explain and
he said, if I remember correctly,
that he had bought it from a half
white girl for fifteen dollars and
sold it to the man who gave it to the
then owner for one hundred. When
ho got the ring the question of value
seems not to have entered his noodle,
else why give only fifteen dollars
for a ring manifestly worth, to any
judge ot precious stones, naif as
many hundred dollars. Mind you
the man who got tho ring for fifteen
dollars sets himself up to be a judge
and will act as valuator of diamonds
NOT TOO LATtJ.
McDudie, I think was away
when the ring was recovered but the
information regarding the whole
transaction was so plain that a law
yer at the bar here told me that
Prosecutor Brown swore to a war
rant on information and belief and
waited only for the return of Mc
Duihe to have it served. This act
in the drama was never staged
i ne L.ymans aim tlic eititor of tho
Advertiser were close friends, and
the latter win familiar with all
01 me pnases oi the case, lie may
have followed it and wondered why
the warrant, if sworn to, was ne
served. It may have provoked him
to a point wnere lie felt that an
investigation was needed, but in all
of it I have heard nothing of the
old case. ' It is not too late yet, if
the sheriff or the prosecuting at
torney wants to take the trouble, and
then there would bo an investigation
that would make the one in which
McDuflie figured look like a play
thing, if Jarret wants to look into
tins sort oi business wlncli is
of greater moment than a dozen
Chinese gambling games. Places
whore stolen goods may be sold are
as common as drinking saloons in
every city on the mainland, ano
the detectives know where to go and
look for the goods. Here it seems
they do not or if they do they are not
successful in securing information.
In some cities where such places
exist, the proprietors notify the
detectives when a lost article ad
vertised is in their possession. This
ruby was advertised for months and
and the man who bought it for fif
teen dollars is a persistent and con
sistent reader of the advertisements.
But the ruby was not restored to its
owner except by mere chance.
It looks to those who are not fami
liar with conditions as though Manuel
Olsen, ex-detective, who says the
Advertiser prevailed upon him to
get up a spurious auiuavit, is going
to have trouble with Attorney Chil-
lingworth and Deputy County At
torney Brown. I believe that both
of the accused gentlemen look upon
ho remarks of Olsen as having been
made-in a Pickwickian sense, and
that there was no intent to throw
