I TH6U Go To Seek : I
i Pirates' Burled Gold. I
There Is nearly $6,000,000 worth of
Spanish gold buried In the sand on
Tuarniffa, one of a chain of islands in
the Spanish Main. For nearly ninety
years this rich treasure, buried by the
pirate Latrobe has remained hidden
from human eyes, but now it is to be
recovered, and unless the plans of a
party of New York men fail those
Spanish doubloons will soon be re
coined into American money.
For several weeks the promters of
the expedition, which is to secure the
booty for which a score of pirates were
hanged, have been quietly at work.
Cornelius Healy, who has followed the
sea all his life, is the active leader
in the affair. Having no money him
self with which to equip the expedi
tion, he has interested a number of
New York people, and they will fur
nish all necessary funds for the trip.
Healy is not a crank. Neither is he
a scamp. He is an honest sailor who
believes that he can take a party of
men to the spot where treasure enough
to make five score men independently
rich lies buried. He has convinced
half a dozen New Yorkers of the truth
of his remarkable story, and they are
willing to back him with their money.
A PIRATE'S HOARD.
The gold which the enthusiastic New
Yorkers hope to win was hidden in
180S by Latrobe. a noted French pirate,
a co-partner of Jean Lafitte, in those
days. The amount is estimated at $5,
--500,000, $4,000,000 of which is in gold
coin and the rest consists of gold few
elry and altar ornaments, stolen by
The expedition about to start in
search of the millions is not the first
one that has left New York on the
same mission. Eight years ago a simi
lar party was formed and reached the
island of Tuarniffa.
Con Healy was one of the men fn
that party, and while they did not
secure a dollar of the treasure and the
members counted themselves lucky to
escape with their lives, they did find
all the indications that the money was
Healy was convinced at that time
that the treasure was buried at the
place where he and his comrades spent
so many weary hours digging, and
since then he has dreamed night and
day of the time when he would lead^an
expedition which would be successful.
His dreams are now about to be real
ized, and he expects as confidently as
man ever expected anything that with
in a few months he will be rich enough
to quit the sea forever and pass his
old age in peace and quietness with
more than enough money to keep him
The story of the disastrous expedi
tion of eight years ago, which might
have cost Con Healy his life, has many
romantic features. After it is told it
will be easier to understand on what
the hopes of the present backers of
the hopeful Irishman are based.
A SAILOR'S SECRET.
Twenty years ago a young doctor
named Davison was coming from the
Sandwich islands, as Hawaii was then
called, to San Francisco. On the ship
was an old sailor who had passed four
score years, and was near the end of
life's journey. He became ill on the
voyage and Dr. Davison attended him. '
Partly to relieve the tedium of the j
voyage and partly because he was re- |
cently graduated, the young doctor !
nursed the old sailor tenderly and care- !
fully, and thus gained his good will, i
For several days the aged mariner lin
gered, growing weaker hourly. Finally !
the doctor told him that human skill
cou # ld do no more, and that he must
prepare to die.
Then the old sailor told a story to
which the young doctor listened with
feelings of amusement and amazement.
The story was startling enough if true,
but the doctor believed that it was the
vagary of a dying sailor, and worthy
of little credence.
"I am an old man," eald the sailor.
"I followed the eea perhaps before
your father was born. So long ago as
1808 I was a sailor, and was familair
with the Spanish Main at a time when
pirates were thicker than islands, and
when the names of Lafitte, Latrobe
and others would make the captains of
a merchantman tremble. Being famil
iar with the numerous small islands,
and knowing where safe harbors were,
those pirates were able to pillage a
vessel with- safety, and then escape
when pursued too closely by a man-of
"For a short time I was a member
of one of those pirate crews. Do not
look shocked, doctor; I could not help
it. I was pressed into the service,
and I swore to follow the black flag
only to save my life. I was young
then and life was precious. The ship
on which I was serving was captured
by the pirate Latrobe. During the
fight two of the pirates were killed.
The entire crew of the ship on which
I was serving were either killed or
captured. There were too many ob
the pirates, and they fought like de
"When I and another young man —
we were both little more than boys —
were offered the chance of joining the
pirate band, we accepted the offer.
Life was sweet to us, and we knew
our fate if we refused. So we swore to
be faithful to the skull and cross-bones
and became members of as bloodthirsty
a crew as ever trod a deck.
"The day after I joined the pirates
we were pursued by a Spanish man-of
war and a Yankee corvette. We had
started for a rendezvous of the pirates,
where a division was to be made of
the booty on board, which I under
stood was quite rich. We still had the
corpses of the two dead pirates on
board, the lnetntlon being to bury
them on some island.
"Those hardened murderers, guilty
of atrocious crimes, had an objection
to burying a fellow criminal at sea, so
the two dead men were stowed away
in the hold. While making for the pi
rate headquarters the Spanish man-of
war appeared, and while running from
her the Yankee craft hove in sight.
Between the two it looked like we were
In for it, but night came on and we
apparently made our escape.
Being recent additions to the crew,
we were not given much information
as to what the future plan was to be,
and we were too scared to ask ques
WHERE THE TREASURE LIES.
"We sailed through an Inlet and into
a safe harbor, formed by a coral reef
around an island. The water was so
shallow we were safe from pursuit.
Here we anchored, and when night
came on the crew was put to work tak
ing oak casks and boxes from the hold
and transferring them to the boats.
Then the boats were rowed to the
island, and the boxes and casks were

carried back several hundred yards,
where a hole had been dug.
"The island was iow and fiat. The
soil was sandy, and the trees which
grew there were merely small shrubs.
All night we worked, and the next day
we rested. The next night we worked
again, and then all the boxes were
burled. The captain of the vessel, a
wicked-looking Frenchman, bossed the
job. A hole was dug to a depth of
about 12 or 14 feet.
"In the bottom of this were placed
hundreds of big conch shells, gathered
along the shore. Then the boxes and
casks were piled in. I understood that
they were filled with gold and coin and
other treasure — the result of a recent
"Over the treasure was placed anoth
er layer of shells. Then the hole was
about six feet deep. Into this was
lowered the bodies of the two dead
pirates, wrapped in pieces of a sail, and
the hole was then filled up. With the
corpses there the hole would look like
an ordinary grave, should any one ever
dig there. I was told that the value
of the gold buried amounted to several
"The next night we attempted to
make our escape from the place. The
captain of the Yankee corvette, how
ever, was too wily for us. His vessel
remained outside the coral reef, and at
night he stationed boats across the
channel through which we had en
tered. The shallow water prevented
his following, and he played a waiting
game. There was not much of a
breeze, and when we were discovered
the Yankee pursued. It was easy for
him to keep in sight of us, and in the
morning he and the Spanish man-of
war attacked us.
THE PIRATES CAPTURED.
"The pirates fought well, but they
were overpowered, and those who were
not killed were made prisoners and
were taken to Kingston, Jamaica.
There they were tried, and we were all
sentenced to death. I was able to
prove my previous good character and
the circumstances under which I had
joined the band, and thus secured a
pardon. The young fellow who had
joined at the same time was so badly
wounded during the fight which pre
ceded our capture that he died. Out
of the entire crew of the piratical craft
I was the only one who did not meet
death within a few weeks after the
treasure was burled on that little sandy
"After he was sentenced and before
his execution, and while I was still in
yriSQAi Latrobe gave me a little bundle
or" papers, li? made me promise
to deliver to Jean La^te, who was the
head of the pirates of the &? Q njs.h Main
at that time. He told me that I \v*?ul<2
find Lafitte on the island of Grand
Terre, in Barataria Bay, on the coast
of Louisiana, not many leagues west
of the mouth of the Mississippi River.
I made the promise and secured the
papers, but I never hunted up Lafitte.
I heard of him afterwards as having
taken part in the battle of New Orleans,
but I never saw him. The papers I
have carried with me ever since."
This story was told by the dying j
sailor to the young physician. Not at I
once, as is given here, but piecemeal
as the sailor's strength permitted.
The sailor was buried at sea, and Dr.
Davison carried the papers to San
Francisco. They were written in
French, which language the young man
did not understand. He secured a
translation of them, however, and
found that they corroborated the story
told by the man from whom he had ob
tained them. The exact location of the
island was given, the place where the
treasure was buried was described and
all necessary details for locating the
gold were set forth. The papers also
contained the names of vessels which
had been captured, an estimate of the
amount of booty secured from each of
them, minor details of the capture and
other matters of less interest.
There was an estimate of the amount
of gold buried on the island, which
was placed at $4,000,000 in coin and
$1,500,000 in Jewelry and altar orna
ments. It was a story with fascinating
features, but Davison was not in
clined to place much credence in it.
For a dozen years he retained posses
sion of the papers, making no effort to
secure the treasure, but quietly looking
up th« history of Lafltte. He learned i
that all of the things which the old
sailor had told were true.
Lafittee did have the Island of Grand
Terre, in Barataria Bay, as his rendez
vous from about 1807 until the war of
ISI2, and he did fight at the battle of
New Orleans which made Andrew
Jackson president of the United States.
He also learned that I/atrobe was
hanged at Kingston and that previous
to his capture and execution he had
secured rich booty from several Span
Then Dr. Davison concluded that
possibly the dead sailor had told the
THE FIRST EXPEDITION.
In 1887 Dr. Davidson came to New
York. The more he thought of the
story told by the dead sailor the more
he came to believe in the existence of
the buried treasure and the more he
wanted to seek it. Lack of funds to
equip such an expedition as would be
required prevented him from making
the effort by himself, even had he been
willing to risk the necessary money.
But still he believes that the five and
one-half millions of gold was to be had
and that the papers he possessed told
the exact location of the treasure.
In New York he interested John Ben
jamin Peck, a special agent of the
treasury department, who was for
years connected with the custom house,
in his story. Peck offered to form a
syndicate to furnish the money to pay
the expend of an expedition, and the
matter was placed in his hands.
Mr. Peck soon interested H. T. Horn,
a civil engineer, Edward Richards,
Prof. Barster and one or two other gen
tlemen In the scheme. A little money
was raised and the plan of procedure
determined. It was necessary to secure
a suitable vessel. Peck well knew that
no yacht-owner would charter a vessel
for such a purpose, except at a high
price, so a different story was told
when he applied to Courtland H. Bel
vin, of the American Yacht Agency
No. 43 Broad street, for a boat.
Mr. Belvin was informed that Mr.
Peck and a party of friends wanted to
secure a yacht for a pleasure cruise to
the coast of Florida on a fishing and
hunting trip. The yacht Maria was
placed at his disposal and was char
tered for four months. The charge for
one month, $600, was paid down.
Charles J. Ward was secured as cap
tain, Peter G. Barret became the mate
and the crew consisted of Joe Smith,
Michael Torney, James Donnell an-i
Cornelius Healy. Peck, Davison, Horn,
Richards and Barster went along as
passengers. The crew when engaged
were deceived as to the destination of
the craft and supposed the boat was
bound for Florida.
The boat carried a liberal supply of
picks, shovels and a email saisson to
be used In case water was encountered.
At Kingston, Jamaica, there was a row
and Dr. Davison left the company. He
had, however, imparted to his com
panions all the information he pos
sessed, and, while he retained the pa
pers he had received from the sailor,
his partners had read them so often
that they felt safe In proceeding with
There was no difficulty in finding the
island. It was covered with coooanut
pakua tod. km about aia* joileg long
by five miles wide. The account of the
treasure said that there were three ma
hogany trees growing in the form of a
triangle near the east side of the Isl
and. After sailing through an opening
in the coral reef surrounding the isl
and the treasure hunters shouted with
joy as they saw the three trees rearing
their branches higher than the shrub
bery surrounding them. No other large
mahogany tree was in eight.
Inside the coral reef the water was so
shallow that the Maria could approach
no closer than a half-mile of the Isl
and. Here the yacht waa anchored
and the crew and passengers went
ashore in small boats. The trees were
found separated by exactly the dis
tance which the pirate's memorandum
said they were.
The treasure was bur'ed, according to
the same account, fifty-nine yards due
north of the northernmost mahogany
tree, near the bed of a boiling spring.
The spring was found, and at this cor
roboratlon of the truth of the story
which had taken them such a long Jour
ney the treasure hunters again shouted
DIGGING FOR THE GOLD.
The digging was easy work and In a
short time a depth of six feet was
reached. Here a few human bones were
found. The smaller ones were gone,
but the thigh bones and a portion of
the skulls and spinal columns of the
dead pirates had resisted the action of
time and were intact, mute and elo
quent proof of the truth of the story
told by the. dying sailor to Dr. Davi
With eager hands and without .stop
ping to rest the work of excavation was
pushed. At a depth of eight feet a faw
conch shells were brought to. light. The
weary men could almost see the shin
ing gold in their hands. Nine feet, ten
feet, eleven feet, and then — disappoint
The toilers struck a bed of quicksand.
The boiling spring had shifted its posi
tion somewhat and the waiter in the
bottom of the hole begun boiling and
bubbling. To dig was impossible. To
make matters worse the sides of the
bank caved in and threatened to bury
the entire party. They scrambled out
and held a consultation.
The caisson was brought from the
Maria, placed in position and sunk
until the quicksand was reached. Then
an effort was made to dip out the
quicksand. it would have been as
easy to dip up the Gulf of Mexico. The
entire island seemed to be resting on a
bed of quicksand a few feet below the
surface of the water at low tide. Evi
dently the heavy gold had sunk into
the quicksand and had gone straight
down to the bottom.
For several days the men continued
digging. They found more bits of bone 3
a few pieces of oak and plenty of conch
shells. Finally iron rods were tied to
gether and the quicksand was sounded.
At the depth of thirty feet hard bottom
was struck. Realizing the utter futility
of trying to reach that depth with the
tools they had, the disheartened men
sadly gathered up their belongings, re
turned to the Maria and set sail for

her head was turned northward the
hull was almost gone. Three days
later she sprang a leak. The crew
worked all night at the pumps, but the
water gained on them and in the morn
ing they took to the boats.
The sails of the Maria were not fur
led and after she was abandoned she
sailed straight on before the wind. The
crew and passengers remained in the
beats but a few hours, being picked up
by the Lady Bird, bound from Belize
to New York. They reached this port
April 5, 1888, having been absent since
Oct. 19, 1887.
John B. Peck has since died and the
only one of the crew that sailed on the
Maria whose whereabouts is known is
Cornelius Healy. He has never given up
hepes of returning to the island with an
expedition properly equipped with a
caisson thirty-five or forty feet long
and a steam pump, so that the bottom
of that bed of quicksand can be ex
amined. He has finally interested men
who will advance the money, and as
soon as a suitable vessel can be secured
he will sail at the head ot the expedit
The ill-fated expedition of nine years
ago was more expensive to Mr. Blevin,
the owner of the Maria, than to any
one else. All he received was $600, and
he lost his boat, which was worth

from what the sailor has told him he

be found if the 1 search for it is con

MES WHO MAKE GOOD HIS3AXDS.
An Authority Suyn That Journalists
Are the Best.
An authority on mankind has given his
views on the sort of men that make the best
husbands. Among thd really nice ones he
classes the man who is fond of fishing, the
lawyer and the all-round journalist. He
does not enthuse over the popular doctor as
a husband, and a musical genius or man of
letters gives him pold chills and shudders.
The author, he says, is so fond of his fine
sentences that he is disagreeable when the
baby cries, and makes himself generally
odious about his food, the noise of the chil
dren and any domestic Infelicities that may
come along. The musician cares for little
except his art, and the wife is often second
ary to the claims of the prima donna, or the
sympathetic creature whose soul is as full
of melody as his own.
In all, the good journalist seems to have
the most strong points. He is a bit of a
philosopher, is likely to be practical, makes
the best of what cannot be helped, and is
full of alternatives. The lawyer Is good to
have in the house. He is likely to be alert,
a good judge of human nature, a good talker
and quite as fond of listening as of hearing
the sound of his own voice. He studies hu
man nature at home as well as abroad, and
is altogether a good fellow.
The politician Is a diplomat, and while
he sometimes leaves all of his diplomacy out
side of his front door, this is not always
the case. The bachelor comes In for a lively

he has no small vices.

moderate speculative business was transacted
in wheat, the range of the day being but

Europe and afloat are but 65 per cent of a
year ago. Cables come steady and unchanged.
Northwestern receipts were moderate and
an active foreign demand for flour was re
ported from Minneapolis for export today.
Storms were reported In Hungary, and severe
hail storms In parts of North Dakota. The
out inspection here was liberal, and a mod
erate demand prevailed for cash today. The
continued poor quality of the present ar
rivals was something of a factor, but the
market failed to respond to any extent to
the foregoing. The absence of outside inter
est being the main drawback. Corn was mod
erately active and firmer. The feature was
the buying of May by a prominent local
trader with large farm interests In Kansas.
There was an easier market in oats with mod
erate trading. The market closed %c lower
after %c range. Provisions opened weak and
continued to rule rather heavy. Pork was al
most entirely neglected In the day"s trading;
lard and ribs monopolized what little trade
there was. Compared with yesterday's clos
ing the losses for the day in the September
deliveries were: Pork, 15c; lard, sc, and ribs

NEW YORK STOCKS.
Close Weak and at Extreme Low
NEW YORK, Aug. B.— The stock market
today was active and irregular, but weak
with a feverish tone prevailing throughout'
Covering of shorts was practically the sole
element of support. The only new develop
ment bearing upon priceß was the bank
statement, showing a decrease of $3,913,025
in surplus and a falling off of $7,849,500 in
deposits. The exhibit exerted an unfavorable
influence, although in the Judgment of con
servatives a less favorable showing had been
discontinued. The opening was weak and
fractionally lower, the more noteworthy losses
being in Sugar and the Internationals. The
last mentioned were affected by weakness in
the London quotations and selling for for
eign account in this market. There was, as
upon yesterday, a remarkable lack of open
e±cstement, aci the Hniti&fed 6T>6erver might
nave been unaware that the street was pass
ing through a sharp crisis, except for the
shrinkage in values. Extensive covering
purchases caused an Improvement tendency
soon after the initial dealings, prices moving
to a point substantially above the low level.
Realizations and a renewed raiding by the
bears resulting in a reaction, which was ac
celerated by the unfavorable constructions
placed upon the bank statement. The list,
as a rule, sagged to the lowest point yet re
corded, Manhattan making an extreme break
from the highest, of 3% per cent, to 7% per
cent. The selling pressure was uninterrupted
to the close, which was weak, with general
material net losses.
Total sales of stocks today were 136,804
shares, including the following: Tobacco,

Is awaited with some anxiety, as It is known

At the same time money Is so plentiful that
it is hoped nothing really serious will happen.
