Wo were lying at anchor in tho liar
tor of Illo do Janeiro. Tho night was
Jot, but beautiful. To tho north wcro
the lights of tho city. Above was tho
tpanglcd dome, while southward bleu
cd tho constellation of tho Southern
We wcro to sail tho next morning for
New York, and It was known among
ua that wo wero to carry $200,000 of
gold coin to New York. No one should
have known of this treasure except tho
offlccra. Tho Bccrct onmo out In this
way: Tho men wanted to go nBhoro for
a final spree. Tho captain, who was a
weak mnn, In order to excuse himself
for not permitting them to go told of
tho treasure. But tho weakest thing
ho did was to lot them go nfter telling
them tho renson why they Bhould stay.
The captain, tho first mate nnd I (sec
ond mate) remained aboard. Tho can
tain was smoking on the poop deck; tho
first inato was pnclng tho forward
deck; I was leaning over tho gunwalo
amidships looking down Into tho wa
ter. Slipping off my clothes, I descend
ed by tho ladder hanging from tho
gangway and plunged in for a swim.
The wnter was refreshing, nnd as tho
moon was rising thero was plenty of
light. The consequence was that I
swam ns far from the ship ns I liked.
I was Borne 200 yards astern hen I
heard tho sound tt oars and, raising
ray head, saw a dark object coming
from the city. I did not doubt that it
was the boat containing the crew com
ing from their spree. I was surprised,
however, that they were so quiet Usu
ally on such occasions they were very
I started to swim to the ship, but
they reached It before me. I heard
tho mato sing out "Boat nlioyl" but
did not hear the answer. The boat's
crsw climbed tho ladder and went
aboard. I beard a scuffle, nnd n mo
ment later a heavy object dropped In
tho water. Tho tldo was going out,
but I-kept ahead of It In tho direction
of tho ship. Presently something
floated by me. Iiy tho light of tho
moon, which by this time was well up
abovo the horizon, I saw the- upturned
ashen face of the first mate. I soon
heard a second splash and knew that
the captain had met a similar fate.
It was now all perfectly plain to me.
The men who had gono ashoro had
been babbling In their cups and had
been overheard by somo person or per
sons who had taken ndvnntnge of their
absence to capture tho treasuro they
had talked about I knew tho robbers
had possession of the ship, and what
to do in self I could not determine.
Possibly I might swim tho distance to
the shore, but I didn't llko tho Idea
of leaving these men to make away
with tho treasure, .thero being no evi
dence of their Identity. While I was
deliberating I heard the anchor chain
rattling through the hawse plpo nnd
know tho captors wcro Intending to
mako sal), or, rather, drift out of the
harbor, for there was no wind. I lis
tened, hoping to hear the sound of
oars Indicating tho return of tho crew,
but heard no such sound. Tho ship
drifted toward me stern on, and, not
knowing what else to do, I clung to the
rudder. But, realizing that thero was
nothing there to support mo for any
length of time, I let go my hold and,
keeping close under the side of tho
ship, waited till tho bow drifted to me,
then grasped a chain under the bow
sprit There I was better protected
from being seen and might cling for
a long while.
When day dawned a breczo sprang
up, and the ship hovo away westward,
keeping close to tho coast. About
sixty miles from Rio they ran her
ashore, bow on. Knowing that I
should be discovered whoro I was, I
swam back to the rudder, keeping un
der water all except my eyes, with
which I saw tho robbers carry tho
treasure ashore. There were flvo of
them, one with red hair and beard di
recting their movements. I noted his
faco and that of every ono of them,
so that I should know them again. As
soon as they got ashoro each man
started off, staggering under a bag of
gold. I gave them time to get a start,
then swam to the ladder, climbed
aboard and after getting provisions
followed them. They wero talking
most of the time, which enabled me
to keep at a safe distance. They
moved eastward and after going about
ten miles stopped at a deserted hut,
went lnsldo and when they came out
had left the treasure. I knew they
had hidden or burled It lnsldo.
After a hurrlod lunch from a basket
they had brought with them they
started on tq tho eastward, walking
rapidly. I felt suro they wcro going
to Rio and wished to get thero as soon
as possible in order that they should
not be missed. Btrlktng a road, they
hired a countryman to drlvo them and
wero thus lost to me.
However, I made my way to tho city
and hunted up the crew who had seen
tho ship sailing away. Soon after they
had left tho dock to return to her I
took them to whero tho treasure bad
keen placed; then after securing It wo
went on to the ship, which at high tldo
we managed to get afloat, and set sail
for Rio. I assumed command, ap
pointed two of the best men as mates
nd on arrival 1 at Rio went ashore
alone and to tho office of tho chief of
poilce. For a week I walked the streets
with a detective and visited the dives.
On the eighth day I saw two of the
men in a saloon. Tbey wcro arrested,
and subsequently the others wero also
I took the ship to New York to her
owners and told my story. The own
ers gave me permanent command, and
we made a compromise on salrago ai
$20,000. ELLIOT WALKER,
NEEDS OF HAWAII.
York Evening Post on Justice
to tho Islands.
The Washington correspondent
of the New York Kvening Post
gives the readers pf that paper an
insight into what it calls " our vex
ing colonial problems" in Congress,
and recommends that the policy
adopted in Porto Rico and the
Philippines of returning to them
all revenues derived therefrom be in
justice applied to Hawaii. The
correspondence- is under dale of
April 26, and reads :
"Colonial problems are coming
to be a routine part of the work of
the national Legislature. They vex
the minds of congressmen accus
tomed to deal with purely domestic
affairs. In the glad days when we
were becoming a world-power, we
took little heed of the added work
it would mean in years to come.
Mr. Kalaniauaole, the delegate
from Hawaii, came here this winter,
with the particular duty of securing
from Congress an enactment to es
tablish a fund for public works'-in
the islands. It was proposed to
set aside for a period of twenty
years 75 per cent, of the islands'
revenue, to be used for internal im
provements. The House Com
mittee or. Territories has reduced
this period to five years, and made
a favorable report on the bill. The
committee was induced to take this
action on what "it conceived to be
broad grounds of national policy.
" When, after the Spanish war,
this country assumed control of the
Philippines and Porto Rico, Con
gress provided that no revenues
should be collected from either of
these possessions, except to be re
turned to their own treasuries. In
the cabe of Porto Rico, where it
is expected our control will be per
manent, absolute ftee entry of all
its products has been granted to our
markets, and all customs dues on
imports from foreign countries are
paid directly into the Porto Rican
treasury. The expenditure of these
import duties, which amounted last
year to more than $700,000, is left
wholly to the island Government.
'It is contended by the Ha
waiiaus that the attitude of Con
gress toward Porto Rico substan
tially recognizes the principle that
fiscal regulations designed for the
States are not adapted to insular ter
ritory over-seas. Constantly to take
revenues, they argue, from such a
detached territory without some
systematic return, cannot but re
sult in injury. In the case of Ha
waii, we took over an established
Government, which had been a
separate sovereignty for three-quarters
of a century. During that time
Hawaii had built up its own fiscal
system, with the customs receipts
furnishing more than one-third the
entire Government expenditures.
It was claimed on behalf of Hawaii,
when its organic act was before
Congress, that all those revenuas
should be returned to the territory
for its use, and it was predicted that
their loss would seriously embarrass
the local Government. For five
years the Territory had tried the
present system, with increasing
A detailed statement here follows
of the amounts of taxes, local and
federal, Hawaii has collected ; and
of the islands' needs in the way of
"For many years Hawaii has
imposed upon her citizens a heavier
per capita tax for schools than any
State in the "Union, pnd has
expended since annexation over
$2,350,000 for the maintenance and
erection of school buildings. The
educational problem of Hawaii is of
greater magnitude than that of any
other Territory. Seventy per cent,
of the childreu enrolled are of other
than Caucasian parentage. In order
to make Hawaii a thoroughly .Am
erican territory, schools must be
provided for childreu of all nation
alities. Lack of funds has already
necessitated a reduction of 20 per
cent, in all teachers' salaries, and
in those isolated islands where the
cost of living is necessarily high
this reduction is keenly felt.
" Financially the business man
and I he average citizen of Hawaii
is declared to be under greater pres
sure today than he was in the years
preceding annexation. The pend
ing bill does not set aside this fund
for the Hawaiian Treasury, nor is
it available for current expenses, ns
in Porto Rico. It may be expended
only for public works of n perma
nent nature, and Congress is to be
in absolute control 6f its distribu
tion. The 25 per cent, reserved
will more than meet federal salaries
and other costs of the Territory to
the Government, so that Hawaii
will not be a charge upon the
