He Is confident that the Cristobal Colon can be saved He believes it Is possible to raise the Vlzcaja, although she is bad-lj- damaged bj explosions and fire, and her bow almost blown awaj bj torpedoes The Oquendo Is almost a hopeless wreck, but the Itelna Mercedes, which was sunk bj- the Spaniards as an obstruction at the mouth of Santligo harbor, can be saved.

AZ1EC TREASURE. -Miner nnil Otlicrn In tlexleo Con tinue lit Sen nil for It. (from the Niu Orleans Picajun-) "The Interview- In the Plcajunc this morning with Capt Evans, the vciemn Mexican miner." said u drummer last nignt nt me Grunewald Hotel, "reminds me of a verj Interesting story I heard when In Mexico some months ago. You have heard the old legend of the fabu lous gold burled somewhere In the mo.n tains bj the Aztecs about the time of the Invasion of the. countrj- by the Spaniards, when thej robbed thff people and swept awaj' Into their own coffers all the go den treasures of the unfortunate Aztecs. Prescott's version of this storj- Is the best, and there Is certalnlj more truth than fancj In the legend You remember there hud been a large expedition Sent out from the Citj- of Mexico bj the Mon tezumas Into the gold countrj'. for the iurpoo of gathering a vast amount of the precious metnls for the ornairenta tlon of new- temples that were being con structed The record reads In tho legend that this expedition was just starting back to the capital when word was brought It that tho nation was In the hands of Spanish robbers. Thej were Instructed to burj- their treasures and re turn to their homes emptjMiandd, rather than to give the additional booty to the followers of Corlcz. The gold expedition followed Instructions, burled Its treas ure" and returned to the capital Cortez was- waiting for them, for he had advice of their mission. He was so enraged ati their empt j -handed return that the en tire partv was ordered killed. "Well ever since 'that daj, at stated times, miners and others have sought for tho treasure Many diligent seatches .have been made, but all have proven fu tile. The secret of 'the hiding place was lost with the death 6f those who buried it. When I was in Mexico, traveling In the Interior some miles from the citj, I met with an American nnmed Miles. He was from ome point in Missouri He had three partners, Mexicans, ore of whom was an Indian and they were just start ing for some point in the Interior, where the Indian said the famous treasure was hidden I have never heard a word from the expedition Miles was confident th it thej would find the ore.rfor It seems he had" good reason to lel!ee that the In dian knew what he was talking -about. "Miles said that the'pla'ce whither thej wero destined was within fifty miles of Mexico Citj-, within the-range of the sur rounding mountains. During the davs of the Aztecs there was n constant warfare going on between the people of the Mon tezumas, living within this range, and the tribes living without that limit, so much so that any effort to penetrate bejond was met with armed reslstanee Hence, he reasoned, as there was verj little, If any, communication between the Montezumas and the outside world, all the gold mmes from which the ast wealth of the Aztecs was drawn must be within a few miles of the citj-. Miles believed that some day these old mines would be rediscovered, and would prove as wealthy as they evl dentlj were before the Spanish plundered the countrj-. This treasure, burled so many jears ago, tho old Indian said, wa3 now buried In the waters of a small lake In the Interior This lake was the des tination of Miles and his partj-. I have watched the rapers closely for some ac count of the expedition, but have never seen a "ord nbaut It." This man, spending several months of every jear In Mexico, Is convinced that there aro vast gold mines somewhere in tho interior, close to the City of Mexico "I remember," he continued, "one daj- I was In the store of a small countrj" mer chant, and an old Mexican came In, bought a few goods, and, taking the mer chant off to one side, handed him a small tobacco sack filled with gold dust. I learn ed afterward from the merchant that he had many customers of this kind, who camo In quletlv. made their purchases and alwajs paid for them In gold dust. Bui ho told me thej could not be persuaded nor bribed Into givlng.awaj the secret of the precious metal's location. He told me that there sometimes came Into his town whole bands of Mexican Indians, all hav ing gold dust, with which they made their purchases.

A KICH BEGGAK. htorj of a Pnur ttiiKiifui A Iu JInile Ills Fortune Hi-re. (From the civ York Timis.) Charles Burkanltz, thlr-lKe cars old, one of New York's -wealthiest and most inlluential beKgar', was sent to the Iland for three months e"sterda b Magistrate Olm-ted In the AVest Side Court. The eharce against him was a grancy, Jet the m!hapen and withered little man Is said to be worth all the nay from $14,000 to 20,000. Burkawltz was arrested Monday een !rs at Broadway and Fift -ninth Street, where lie was busily engaged grinding out ancient melodies on that beggars' most precious friend, the bijou hand organ, v hile his lghtles ejes turned appeallng ly upward with the far-away stare of the blind. Being arrested Is no new etperl ence for Bukawjiz He has made many a. journe to the Island In the course of his busy life. He Is known to half the po--Hcemen In the city. They know that hy a strict attention to business and the ap plication of approed methods, he has built up a lucrative trade In his own par ticular line, and they regard him as a shining example of w hat thrift and enter prise will accomplish, een In the beg ging profession Burkawltz was brought to this country from Kussla about fifteen jears ago by hls uncle, who hoped to use him as n re munerative object of charity. He hadn't a copeck to bless himself with at the time. Hb was descended, however, from a. long line of famous mendicants and In herited traits In good stead In new fields. The only external equipment -possessed by the bo was a peculiarly repulsive ap pearance, his hair growing far down on his forehead, as if he had been born a helpless Idiot. He did not have even a withered arm or leg. His uncle, who was a prosperous beg gar In this clt. Installed the boy at Fourteenth Street and Third Avenue. This claim had long been considered by the beggars to be practically worked out, but joung Burkawltz went to work with a will, and soon had the buslncs on a pay ing basis. He supplemented his meager natural equipment by feigning blindness. He woald roll his ejes upward, so that only the whites could be seen He subse quently enlarged the scope of his opera tions by dlsplaving a suck of villainously bad lead pencils, and thereby practically Introduced the display of beggars' pen cils In the lower p-irt of the city. Burkawltz soon withdrew from partner ship with his uncle, and went Into busi ness for himself. Nine jears ago he met with a fortunate accident. He fell down three flights of stairs In the tenement In which he was living and laid oen his skull. He came to his senses and found that he need not roll his eyes In order to be sightless. He consulted eminent surgeons, and they told him they could perform an operation whereby he could see again, but the rearranging of the shattered skull would prciably destroy his reason. So Burkawltz promptly de elded to remain blind. He was sadly maimed, and nfter that his bank account grew- by leaps anfl bounds.
