BURIED LUCRE
Believed to Be Hidden in
Elysian Park
AN OLD STORY IS REVIVED
PARK COMMISSIONERS DON'T
BELIEVE IN IT
And Refuse to Grant Permission to a
Search Party to Dig—Westlake
Park Boating Privilege
At the meeting of the park comlsslon
ers In the mayor's office yesterday
morning, only Messrs. Teed, Griffith and
Walters, with Secretary Mendenhall and
Superintendent Garey, were ln attend
ance.
On motion, Commissioner Griffith
took the chair, and the minutes of the
previous meeting were read, after which
the matter of the boating privilege for
Westlake park was called up, and on
motion of Commissioner Waters, the
lease and bond of Newell Brothers were
approved, and referred to the city coun
cil for confirmation.
Mrs. L. A. Dolloff appeared before the
board and asked that boxes be placed'ln
the various parks 'as receptacles for re
ligious literature, and on motion per
mission was granted for the placing of
such boxes for said books and papers.
Superintendent Garey reported, that
he had appointed John McMillan to take
charge of Fremcnt gate to Elys-lan
park, which appointment was con
firmed.
On motion, the superintendent was
authorized to purchase a supply of
Dutch bulbs, as per list presented t?
the board, amounting to about $160, and
the secretary was instructed to make
out a requisition for the same.
A communication was read from G.
H. Loring requesting that he be grant
ed permission to dig for burled treasure
ln one of the canyons of Elysian park.
As this has been tried once or twice,
without success, the request was de
nied, and the board adjourned.
While Mr. Lorlng's proposition was
received with considerable levity by
the board, that gentleman could sec
nothing funny about It. He claim?
that he made the offer In good faith,
and while he has no positive assurance
that any treasure lies burled In Elysian
park, from what he has heard, he and
two or three companions are willing to
risk some time and money ln making
the search. The fact that two or three
other parties have tried this same thing
and failed did not have a discouraging
effect on Mr. Loring, and he assured
the commissioners that he had no con
nection with them. As the previous dig
gers had prosecuted their work
surreptitiously, and failed to All up the
shafts which they had sunk, the board
thought It would be better to stop any
further sinking of pitfalls for the un
wary on the city's lands.
This treasure story Is only one of a
number of traditions that have been
handed down during the past century.
This particular treasure. It Is presumed,
was burled by an old Mexican some
thing over fifty years ago, and Is said
to consist of gold coin and Jewelry to
the value of several thousand dollars.
As Elysian park at that time was con
sidered out of the earth, so far as civ
ilization was concerned, the old Don was
rot particular ln locating his land
marks, and die* before he had taken
the necessary steps to preserve his
wealth, leaving only a very vague and
Indefinite description, only saying that
something of value was buried, in one
of the canyons northwest of the city,
presumably ln that portion now known
a? Elysian park. Another story la to
the effect that large treasure was burled
ln the cemetery on Buena Vista street,
and several years ago an old shoemaker
came down from Ban Bernardino and
spent some time in digging ln that place.
Still another story Is to the effect that
shortly before the Workman & Temple
bank failure something over $20,000 In
gold coin was drawn out by a depositor
before the crash and "planted" some
where among the hills of what is now
Elysian park, said by some to be ln the
Chavez canyon. There Is also a story
that there Is a large treasure burled near
Long Beach, and some months ago a
party was organized in this city to hunt
for the same. A sort of stock company
was formed, and a number of working
men were induced to part with a few
dollars by a rharp schemer to pay the
expenses of the same. It is hardly likely
that there will be any further digging,
at least on city property.
Sewers Recommended
The sewer committee of the city coun
cil yesterday filed a report ln the mat
ter of the petition from J. B. Brown et
al., asking for the construction of a
system of sewers In that portion of East
Los Angeles bounded on the north by
Baldwin street, on the south by Main
street, on the east by Thomas street
and 1 on the west by Griffin avenue, rec
ommending that the same be granted
and the city engineer instructed to pre
sent an ordinance of Intention ln compli
ance therewith.
President Silver Improving
President Sliver of the city council,
who has been confined to his house for
over a week past, was able to get out
for a short time yesterday morning and
vifsited' the city hall. Mr. Silver shows
the effects of the siege through which he
has passed, but hopes to be abUe to re
sume his duties- by the latter part of
this week or early next.
Public Works
As there was nothing requiring In
spection, the board of public works yes
terday omitted their regular weekly
tour about the city. The regular weekly
meeting of the board win be held this
morning, when something more will
probably be heard about the Central av
enue Improvement contract.
On the Sick List
Mayor Snyder waa unable to be at his
office yesterday. As soon as he Is able
his honor will probably take a short va
cation, going to the Elftlnore hot springs
City Assessor Seaman to mil on the
sick list.
The Thirty Complete
The committee of thirty of La Fiesta
was made complete again yesterday by
the election of the-following gentlemen.
R. J. Waters, W. D. Woolwlne, Gen. C.
F. A. Last, T. E. Gibbon, R. W. Prld
ham and C. S. Walton.

tee of thirty, and the nine representa

chants and Manufacturers' association,

LOS ANGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 28, 1897
PRINCE FAKIR
0. Hamilton Griffin's New
York Trouble
HIS CAREER IN LOS ANGELES
A "GREAT PROMOTER" 117 THE
OLD BOOM DAYS
His "Dry Sparkling Champagne"
Pake Which Was the Talk of the
Town—Other Schemes
An Associated Press dispatch from
New York yesterday announced thai
Dr. G. H. Griffe-n had disappeared aftei
swindling several persons out of consid
irable sums by means of bogus railroad
and mining enterprises. All of the ap
pearances Indicate that Dr. G. H. Grif
fen le the same as Dr. G. Hamilton
Griffin, formerly of Los Angeles, who
Will be remembered by the "pioneers of
1886" as one of the smoothest all-round
fakirs and confidence operators of the
boom period.
Griffin dropped Into Los Angeles from
somewhere, no one knows Just exactly
where, though he claimed to be a native
of England, and to have lived for some
years ln London. He was a fine looking
man, a good dresser and one of the
smoothest talkers that ever struck the
coast. Although from hip appearance
there war a conplde-rable admixture of
African blood in his veins, his wife-was a
handsome blonde, as was also her sifter,
who accompanied him. The doctor did
not lose any time, and at once blossomed
out as a real estate operator on a large
ecale. He organized a fitted
up handsome offices, and for a time-did
a land office business.
He did not last long in real estate, but
he was full of resources, and as a "side
line" organized the Dry Sparkling Cham
pagne company. A cheap barn was.'
erected down in the river bed, and glow
ing procpcctusas were issued, ln which
It was stated that there was a fortune
for the investors ln the enterprise, as
champagne equal to the best Imported
brands could be turned out for 10 centsa
bottle, including the label and bottle.
Just how much the doctor got out of this
scheme is not known, as the stock was
disposed of ln blocks of large face value
for a comparatively modest amount of
ready coin. When everything was In
readir.es'S the doctor advertised a ban
quet at the Nadeau hotel, when the new
wine was to be introduced. A barrel of
the cheapest white wine was bought on
credit and s;nt to one of theexida factor
ies, where it was heavily charged with
gas. An elaborate lunch was prepared,
ar.d many prominent citizens were- In
vited to the feast. It was a memorable
event, and great accounts appeared in
the daily papers, but no more champagne
was made.
After a numbsr of more or less nar
row eecapenfrom taking up his residence
behind the bar?. Dr. Griffin suddenly
left Los Angele-s, saying that he was
disgusted with the place. When next
heard from the doctor was In trouble
over a fake coal mine and blackmail
scheme in British Columbia, in which he
tried to swindle several members of the
government. The British authorities
were not as tolerant of the doctor's
idiosyncrasies as were those of Cali
fornia, and the upshot of the matter was
that he was tried, convicted and sent to
the penitentiary for three of four years.
On his release he announced that he
intended to devote himself to legitimate
business claiming, however, that he
had been a persecuted man.
He then went to Chicago, and It was
only a short time until he was at his old
tricks. He escaped Jail, with his usual
luck, and nothing has since been heard
of him ln California until the story of
his late-st swindle was received by tel
egraph. The fact that Griffin stands at
the head of his-business as a confidence
man is shown from the fact that he has,
SO far as known, never gone under an
alias, and yet with his crooked career,
which any one could have aecertalned at
the expense of a 3-cent postage stamp,
he has never failed to land big game in
every city In which he has operated.

This Is to certify that I 'have had ij
teeth extracted by Dr. Schiffman's method
and did not experience any pain. It is un
questionably the best work I evsr had
done. C. W. BLANCHAhD,
With L. A, Ice and Storage Co.
December l, 1896.
On account of some unfortuna'j expe
riences I had in the extraction of iay teeth
I became a great coward in this respect.
Today Dr. Schiffman extracted one of my
very refractory teeth without causing me
one particle of pain. D. K. TRASK,
Attorney, Fulton Block.
I can-testify that the extraction of a
tooth by Dr. Schiffman'slmethod need not
be dreaded by any one. He surely does it
without pain. REV. S. L. WHITE,

.J? t , 1 ? 8 ?, v , bllc- :Ir «' ve »me great pleasure to say
that Pr Wong Him's treatment In my case has
been most successful. For yearj I have been
troubled with the kidney and stomach troubles.
I tried various remedies from other physicians,
but received no permanent help. Dr. Wong Him's
treatment has removed all tendency of these troub
les and aeems to be permanent In Its results, t like
Dr. Wong Him'l Ideas ot Herb treatment, clean
ing and renovating tbe system before building It
up again, lam certainly pleased to «ay that lie
has done a great deal of good to me and that I
have found htm to be a well educated man, un
assuming and kind, commanding the respect of
all good people. Very respectfully,
