Twelve Burro Loads of - Treasure
Taken from a Cave arid Ship
ped to the United States.
Hermosillo, Mex., Nov. 14. A
remarkable story, duly authenti
cated, of the discovery of hidden
Aztec treasures, has just been report
ed to the Government authorities
at Tepic by Rev. Pablo Martino, the
parish priest of Yesca.
The priest makes a statement,
which is concurred in by several
reliable witnesses, that a party of
Americans, headed by an archa
eological expert who gave the name
of Heverick, arrived at Yesca sev
eral weeks ago and went from that
place into the mountains, accom
panied by three Mexican guides.
The archaeologist obtained his
bearings by means of a chart which
he claimed to have copied from an
Aztec stone tablet in the National
Museum in the City of Mexico. He
located a vast cavern in the moun
tain near Yesca. ,
Immensestone images stood about
this chamber. In one end was a
lhandsome altar, above which burn
ed a bright flame, sunnlied bv
natural gas from a crevice in the
In a chamber adjoining this main
temple was found a great -store of
ornaments ani utensils belonging
to the Aztec or some other prehis
Twelve burros were a-euuired to
transport the articles -taken from
the'cave to San Bias, -where they
were shipped to the mountains, ac
companied 'by three Americans.
As such articles can uot be
removed from Mexico without the
consent of the Government,
investigation is in progress.
