S„ June 22. —The five Americans who have steamed out of Xew York harbor for “an obscure is land off Xova Scotia" to search for buried treasure are believed here to be headed for Oak Island, in Mahone Huy, legendary hiding place of 10,- <>oo,ooo pounds sterling. Old settlers in this country have .-con many another party squander its time and fortune looking for the gold which the lore of the land say.- is hid den on the island. A dor.cn companie.- or more have tried their luck at the search, and credulous folks of Xew England and Xova Scotia have poured a million dollais into the tills of treasure-seeking expeditions. Pro moters id' some of the-e companies waxed prosperous, but no one over heard of a dividend going to the stockholders.' It is not recorded when the first hunt for the treasure began, but early legends concerning the searches arc thought by some to have inspired Edgar Allan Poe to write “The Cold Bug.” Twenty years ago an expedi tion used hundred.- of men and horses and great machines digging into the sand- of the island. Xothing came of their labors. An old sea captain was resident manager of the company. Xot long ago some Chicago people became interested. Their big idea was to freeze the quick sand reputed to guard the treasure. The old sea captain rubbed his hands and dream ed of another thrilling search. But somehow the plan fell flat, and then the captain died. Since then no on' has bothered to look for the legcndaiy treasure. Some say Captain Kidd captured the gold in the Ea t Indies and hid it on Oak Island. Others say that uur ing the war among the South Amer ican countries one ef the governments put its national treasure on a ship that escaped the enemy, and came to Canada's coast to bury it cargo of riches.
