Post Halsey, Harlan Page (aka Old Sleuth): A Desperate Chance v1 1 dec 2008

Another One by Old Sleuth here:
A DESPERATE CHANCE
OR
THE WIZARD TRAMP'S REVELATION

A Treasure hunt, full of action and suspense:
Quote:
The two men assisted Desmond to their shoulders.

He took the lantern and shoved his head through the opening, and then flashed the light around, and with a joyful shout exclaimed: "We've got it!"

"This beats me dead," said Creedon.

Both men were greatly excited, for it did appear that they had made a great find of hidden treasure. Meantime, Desmond managed to force himself up and disappeared in the cave. He glanced around and beheld a sight that filled him with varying emotions. The chamber was not more than four feet square, but on the floor in one corner was a shining heap. It shone under the ray of his lantern as he flashed the light upon it. He took a handful of the shining stuff and passed it down to Creedon, handing him the lantern at the same time, and he said: "You are a good judge; tell me what that is?"

"It's gold dust," cried Creedon; "how much is there of it?"

"Oh, barrels full, I should say."

"Great ginger! lad, you've struck it."
