AZTEC TREASURE CAVE
_______

REPORTED AMERICANS FOUND

AND RIFLED ONE NEAR YESCA.

______

Hermadillo, Mexico Nov. 14 --Father

Pablo Martion, the parish priest of Yesca,

has reported to the government authorities

a remarkable tale of the discovery

of an Aztec treasure horde.



A party of Americans headed by an 

archaeologic expert, who gave the name

of Heverick, arrived at Yesca several

weeks ago, and went into the mountains

with three Mexican guides. Heverick

followed a chart which he said was 

copied from an Aztec stone tablet in the

National Museum in the city of Mexico.

He located a great cavern in the

 mountains  in which stood scores of

 huge stone images. At one end was

a massive altar, above which burned a 

clear light. It was natural gas, piped 

from a crevice in the wall.



In a nearby chamber was a great

store of ornaments and utensils.  The

guides say more treasure was found.

Twelve burros were used to transport

the stuff to San Blas.  Whence it was 

shipped to San Francisco.  As such articles

cannot be removed from the

country without the consent of the

government, an investigation will be held.
