IS IT A REAL DIAMOND?
The prevailing imporaiou in re
gnul to thcso Hawaiian IslnndB,
ns far as mineral resources eo, is
that no minerals of any kind aro
to bo found hero.
If the specimon that the Line
brothers havo in their possession
proves to be all that they claim
lor it, general impressions to the
contrary notwithstanding, a most
interesting and valuablo tninernlo
gical fact will bo established in
the history of this country.
Messrs. Lot and John Laue
when Beou at their bprao in Alo
wa yesterday wororither roticont
at first in speaking of their find,
but finally favored tho Bulletin
with the details.
The interesting specimsn is n
fair sized rough diamond, in
shape somowhat resembling a
cow-pea, though larger if any
thing. Hold in favorable lights
it reveals its rainbow beauty,
when cut it will mako,a brilliant
to bo envied.
The Lano3 discovered the gem
in rather a peculiar manner. It
seomB that a hen which was killed
for the table had secroted tho
stono in her gizzard. It is thought
the fowl nicked up the diamond
in a half clayey, half sandy strotah
of ground in tho immediato vicini

Tho Lanes, who wore conlom
plating soiling out nod going into

if it wouldn't pay thorn bettor to
keep their land and go in for dia
monds. Mr. Lot Laue carrios the
stono about with him and occa
sionally exhibits it. No expert bi3
passed upon it as yet, and ho will
probably sondit to the Ooast to be
tested. When asked if he would
be willing to send tho gem to the
Omaha exposition, Mr. Line said
he was unprepared to auswor.
