"I have been at work upon reports

road Company aro responsible for tho
details of a remarkah' plot to defraud
the government In obtaining oil' lands
in the AVest, valued at fifteen million
"This new testimony shows the most
remarkable picture of a criminal con
spiracy I have ever come across. Tho
plan was to obtain from tho United
States, under an agricultural grant, im

carefully wrote down Edwards's state'

a map of tho burled treasure. Aftor
remaining In tho country till iO10 he
joined the service or tho Argentines,
first In one ship nndor Corney and
lastly under tho famous Bouchard. He
spoke so highly of tho latter that I
woe convinced that It Nelson ever had

I promised due. secrecy as a mattor
of course and studied tho diagram of
the location, but alas! poor Connor
went to his futures home, without tho
treasure. Let ub hope that a kindly

In the year 18S9, I arrived In Hono
lulu after an unpleasant picnic of four,
months duration on Midway Island.
Shortly after my arrival I had the
good fortune to make the acquaint
ance of the late Hon. J. I. Dowsett,
with whom I had many a long con
versation about Hawaii, both ancient
and modern, principally the former.
I do not think that there are many
who possessed such a fund of knowl
edge of old Hawaii, or who could' tell
ohout It, in such a perspicuous and
Kamehameha's financial transaction
with the crew of tho Santa Rosa was
particularly amusing (full particulars
of this pirate vessel are to he found
in a neat volume published by Thrum
& Co. entitled "Early Northern Paci
fic Voyagers" by Peter Corney).
It seems by a fortunate coincidence
the king had a cargo of rum just ar
rived which ho carefully bottled off.
On tho arrival of the pirate ship rum
being evidently in' demand, his price
was ono coin nor bottle. As soon as
all their silver coin was expended,
they produced Ave peso gold pieces
and clearly explained that tho gold
piece was worth five times as much
as one silver piece, and therefore de
manded fivo bottles of rum. This (he
king would not assent to; one coin
one bottle, he said. They therefore
thought that they would submit but
cut the gold piece In five. Thla the'
king would not accept, he replied that
ho could not cut his bottle in five, so
as there was no alternative, they had
to give way. Soon there was noth
ing but doubloons still one coin ono
bni tie then came tho bar silver.
During a visit to Victoria, B. C, I
picked up an old London Magazine
which contained the account- of Clio
visit to Hawaii of the Santa Rosa,
and later the- Argentina. I was so
much interested in the account that
at my request Mr. Thrum published
tho said volume; It called to mind
Mr. Dowsott's amusing tale of ono
coin one bottle of rum, and also old
man Connor and his treasuro secret,
and I still wonder whether It would
bo considered insanity to go and see
if tho treasure Is there.
