The Saltm gentleman to whom ref erence was made a few days ago as having received the letter from ex- Captain JuanUasanta in regard to the buried treasure of 650,000 francs secreted in this vicinity, bas received the additional explanations, etc, wnicn were promised in the first let ter. xne last letter was received Friday morning. Tbe Salem gentleman told a SENTiNEL.representative of receiv ing tne Jetter, but would not allow him to read it. In fact he said that he had decided to test the matter and would at once take the necessary steps io oring tne young lady, Miss Basanta from the Toledo College to this city and get possession of the great treas ure. It is understood that a certain Sa lem young man, intimately associated with the gentleman, has agreed to as sume half the risk and is to, for this consideration, have the especial favor of Miss Basanta's prospective guard ian, in his suit for that fair and very probably fabled lady's band when she attains a marriagable age. The Sentinel can state on tbe hlgnest authority, despite tbe refusal of tbe Salem gentleman to allow him to read the letter tbat the principal features of the "Additional informa tion" is that the sum of $1,000, sball be forwarded tbe imprisoned and Ill fated captain's conUdent, whose ad dress is given. This is to pay the ex penses of the voyage of Miss Basanta and himself tc Winston-Salerr. Tbe bill for the balance due the To ledo College is also enclosed. Tbere are detailed instructions given as to how the money ($1,000) shall be for- waraea. mnic notes must be sent by registered letter and the confident must oe notified of the mailing by telegraph. Then there is also enclos- en me promised sworn statement of the governor of the prison at Barce lona, Spain, in whose custody Captain Basanta now is. This tells of the lat ter's capture and subsequent trial and sentence of imprisonment, verifying the story as told by Basanta in the first letter. Judging from the con fidence and enthusiasm of t,h sifm gentleman, if his efforts and risk can avail, Miss Basanta will soon dawn upon Winston Salem as a bright and central star equaled onlv bv the fa mous Miss Cisneros of Cuban fame.

An Olliclul of the Road and President St. John of the Seaboard Deny It. Mr. Fries Knows Nothing of It. Receiver Gill Confirms It. "There is no truth in the reported I sale or lease of the Cape Fear & Yad ? urn vn p.nL, ? ! kin Valley Railroad to the Seaboard Air-Line." Thus spoke a Drominent nfflll nf the C. F. & Y. V. road to a Sentinel man Saturday morning. The gentleman added that tbe road was in the courts and could not be sold before next spring. "There are two bidders for it," continued this official. "The Southern and Seaboard want it and the longest pole will get the persimmon." Our informant said the report was sent out by the Baltimore committee which represents the Seaboard. "It was done to effect tiie securities of the Cape Fear road and I notice from the papers that it worked well." The New York bondholders want the Southern to buy it. This olliclal feeis confident that the road will be sold as a whole. President St. John, of theSeaboard, telegraphs the Greensboro Telegram to the effect that he has no such in formation and the report could not be true as the road has not yet been ordered sold by the court. The Greensboro Record says "there may be some truth Id that an effort is being made in the direction of a lease, but it has not been consummated, for It cannot be done without an order from the U. S. Court, the road being in tbe hands of the court. Should the bondholders agree, Judge Simon ton could, 6hould he see proper, ar range it, but so far as is known these bondholders are at loggerheads yet. In any event a sale of some kind would have to be made to get the road out of the hands of the court." Mr. J. W. Fries, who is receiver of the North State Improvement Co.. which built the C. F. & Y. V. road, remarked that he knew nothing about the reported sale or lease, ex cept what he had seen in the papers. "1 am not a party to it," said Mr. Fries, who added that the court would have to order the road sold. TheSea board bas been negotiating for the road and it is possible that a condi tional deal has been made' by that Company and the Baltimore bond holders of the C. F. & Y. V. STATEMENT FROM KECEIVEK GILL. The Raleigh Post, received Sat urday, contains the following tele gram from Gen. John Gill, of Balti more, receiver of the C. F. & Y. V. road : "You can confirm the report of the lease of the Cape iFear & Yadkin Valley Railroad to the Sea board Air Line Of course, subject to the purchase of the road by the Balti more Company at the foreclosure sale to be held in the future. Four per cent, is guaranteed to the 'A' bond holders on the par value of their hold ings, and 4 per cent, to the 'B' and the 'C bondholders on three-fourths of the face value of their interest." The Work Progressing. Mr. Batchelor, of the Arm of Batch elor & Magruder, drove over from Mocksvilleo Saturday. He says they are getting along flnely with their contract on tbe new railroad. They are working about 200 men and 42 mules. While this Arm has more work to do than any of tbe other con tractors, Engineer Wells expresses the opinion that they will be the Arst to nnisn their job.
