HIGH PJilOED HUM.
Awny back in 1818 when the South
American Republics were about to
begin their .struggle for independence
and everything there "was in an un
settled state of seething, tumultuous
anarchy n gang of men stole, in the
harbour of Callao, a little full-rigged
&hip called the Victory. The real
leader of the party was an English'
man but the nominal leader was a
man who had been in the naval
service of thi? Buenos Ayrean Re
public. They ran down the coast of
South America landing at unpro
tected ports and robbing, pillaging,
aiul plundering everything of value
they could lay their hands on. Even
the sacred vessels of the churches
were seized and carried oil" by their
profane juicl piratical hands. Gradu
ally they accumulated much treasure
i.i the shape of golden and silver in
gots, crucifixes, patens, chalices,
etc., and many a pillared dollar and
necklace of gems were in their
coffers stolen from the strong box of
some wealthy Spaniard. But the
tale of their depredations was soon
noised abroad and the gpvcrnments'of
those parts fitted out cruisers it)
search of them and they had to fly.
Spreading their -white-winged sails
to the mild breezes of the Pacific
Ocean they lied, northward and
westward, till they descried the tall
mountains of Hawaii in the distance.
Finally they came to an anchor in
Kealakekua Bay and anchored off
the spot where Captain Cook was
slain thirty odd years before.
Kamehameha the Conqueror whs
(then at Kailua whither he had gone
after the return of Adams from
China with his cargo of red broad
cloth and rum in exchange for sand
alwood. He heard of the arrival of
these strangers and lie soon formed
his opinion of them. Their lavish
generosity in the matter of gold
ornaments to his people showed him
that they had not come by them
honestly but he bided his time. They
soon found out that he had rum
East Indian rum or arrack. So they
treated for its purchase and he sold
them a cask for $1,000 in silver.
Carouse alter carouse followed till
that was exhausted. Then they
wanted to buy another cask. "No,"
said the wily mouarch. "You buy
it by the bottle now, Si a bottle."
And they continued buying in this
way till their dollars were done.
Then they brought out their bars of
silver, each1 bar being worth about
$250 and proposed to exchange these
for rum, cutting off so much for so
many bottles. But Kamehameha
rose equal to the occasion . "No,"
said he, "One bar, one bottle."
And so it was. They had to pay the
price or get no rum. Very soon
their silver ingots had run out and
they started in on their gold bars at
the same rate, a bar for a bottle.
(Each gold bar was worth about
$2,500, a pretty steep price for a
bottle of nun.') But about thig time
a northwest'eaptain, Davis by name,
c.une nlong from China and he had
about $3,000 in silver dollars with
him. So'thc buccaneers proposed
to buy his dollars for gold bars but
the old captain, a shrewd down
oister, saw how the land lay and
refused to part except at a profit.
A steelyard was produced and the
dollars placed on one side, the bar
g )ld on the other. First they offered
him gold for 10 times its weight in
silver uud then five times. Finally
he'agrced to sell them dollars for an
equal weight of gold. W.lien the
scales were even, he said, "Down
weight, boys, I have had great
trouble in collecting those silver
dollars" and they had to do it.
Very soon, though, theso dollais
and all their bar gold were in tLo
hands of Kamehameha in exchange
for his rum. Then ho bought tho
vessel from them and was lilting it
out to send Adams to China again
and bring back nothing but ruin
when, just the day before they were
ready to stait a Buenos Ayican
man-of-war appeared off the coast
and seized tho vessel. The Cap
tain accompanied by n file of ma
rines landed and walked over to
Kailua to Kamehameha and ex
plained how matters stood and Ka
mehameha delivered up all tho crew
of the vessel to him. They were
brought in slung on poles like so
many pigs, each on the shoulders of
two lltiwiiiians. All the church orna
ments and vessels were asked for
and given up but nothing else was
demanded and the man-of-war sailed
for Honolulu in search of the sup
posed ring-leader. Here they found
Davis' vessel and searched it but to
his great joy failed to find or take
his bar gold. But their man hud
gone to Kauai and there they went
after him. After some time he was
delivered to them and shot on the
beach and buried at low-tide. Then
they sailed away and never returned.
Never since the death of Kamehn
niehn has this treasure been dis
covered and it is known not to have
been used in his life-time. Many
believe it to be hidden in caves in
Hawaii and some have spent much
time in searching for the hidden
treasure of Kamehameha.
