that this important bill now beforo
the Legislature provides for nothing
more serious than a referendum of
the whole subject to the people.
It is singular that the only oppon

of the referendum plan. Theoreti

concerned they are always ready to

part of the General Assembly as a
How, then, can they justify their
opposition to a referendum on one
of the most Important questions that
has come before the State lawmak

people want good roads and it was
agreed until recently that the long
term bond issue was the proper way
to finance the big project outlined
In the Sproul bill. Why should' tho

expression of the popular wishes at
the polls in this instance and not in

WOMAN FAILS TO FIND
GOLD ON C0C0S ISLAND.
Treasure Hunting Expedition Comes
Back After Fine Time.
Tho treasure hunting expedition led
by Miss Genevieve Davis, an English
woman, which had been looking for
buried gold on Cocos Island for many
months, got back to the city of Pana
ma recently. A good time was had by
all. No treasure was recovered.
Benito Bonito was a regular pirate,
who in the early part of tho nineteenth
century settled down to "singeing the
beard of the king of Spain" along the
coast of Mexico. When ho got any
money together he buried it on Cocos
island after the manner of pirates and
made a map with the skull and cross
bones marking the spot where the
treasure was hid. His heirs have
made a substantial living selling these
maps to thoso whom romance uud the
works of R. L. Stevenson have touched.
Miss Davis' expedition stnrted out
from Plymouth with one of tho maps
and n vessel armed with a six pounder
to fight tho natives of Cocos island,
which lies 550 miles southwest of Pan
ama,' on Sept: 10 last. The only wom
an besides Miss Dnvls aboard the ship
was her friend Mrs. Barry Till.
