temple ' archives, • and the temple treasures. This hiding-place was connected with the blood canal used for carrying off the blood of the sacrificial offerings in the temple. _Tiie hiding-place ivas in connection* also with David's city. . Ifc is ■_._£ staged m the cypher that the blood canal and David's city were in d-rcrt communication, though this is probable. x Bavid's city was on Mount Ohphfd The immediate entrance' to the treasure chamber was through _ cleft Ueop down m the rock; which was tilled up at the time .of the hiding-of tee treasures, and must consequently first he cleared out by any explorers. ACCESS TO THE SECRET. There were three apr-reaches to the 'water-system, and thence to" the blood canal One of these was throu«h the temple itself, now tho Mosque c-' Omar, and another near to the Vir-' gKis .aell (discovered by Sir-Charles Marrea).'. T.h.3 third approach was at a considerable- distance, and in -hese days unavailable. That the blood canal was of co-i----siderabla size, may be gathered from the. racf that at' -the consecration of the tompb 22,000 oxen and 18,000
; sheep were slaughtered as sacrifices j by King Solomon. ' L * j ' Any exact description of the' sup- ; posed contents of the secret chamber would be impossible, but it ivas un- | dei'steod- that' the treasure alone to - be found_ there' would be worth' several millions of pounds. At first the idea of a cypher as discovered by Dr. Juvelius was scoured by -all to whom he mentioned the matter. He himself had not the means " to equip an expedition to prove his theory. Through the offices of friends in Finland, he was, however, ..brought, in 1908, into contact Avith a SAvedis-h engineer named Milieu, at that time resident in Copenhagen. Through him a certain Lieutenant Hoppenrath, who had emplored in the- Congo, was interested in the matter, and communications were entered into, with Captain Parker, in England; In the summer of 1008-Dr. Juvelius ivas called to Eng]and. where the question of a syndicate to oxamine into the matter was mooted. A preliminary expedition.'to .'lorusalem was undertaken," where Dr Juvelius pointed out the exact olace on which,* according to his theory, explorations
■should be begun. On his return to England a syndicate was formed permission being in the meanwhile obtained from the Turkish Government to carry on the operations. This consent ivas not given platonically. SHARE ALLOTMENTS
The representatives of the Government xeceiveid half of the shares of the company m consideration of their consent. A quarter of the shares was allotted to Dr. Juvelius, ?n . t turn for the syndicate obtaining tht right to use bis cypher and to cam out his plans The remaining quSter was allotted to the English memto° rS find ™% & who-iiSertS. cap£l. he Hecessar y working

The title was taken from the initials of the partners, Di Juve lws, Mr Milieu, Captain p ai g ;Mr,: Vaughan, -and Mr & Since the time of the formation of the syndicate other persons ™been ciany but their.names have not appeared prominently except on tne maps of the expedition. The nominal share capital of the company was fixed at £30,000. - x ■ -In August 1909, the first- excavations were begun in the greatest aTt^fr d Ul ) de i subfrfugS tfon . ° b36Ct ° f tke oxP&i'-
About the middle of April Dr. Junius became aware that the efforts the^wo -, th 6 tne two outside entrances could notbe successful for a considerably long. time and he expressed it to the syndicate, that the only course left opS. to _ the party to attain their goal quickly was to make an entry diW mto. the blood canal, ifthfs could be accompliskejd. fi l Tll6 « in ! o i? lat ' ioa rece ived here is to the effect' that some great discovery has been made, and that the prospect of a favourable financial outcome of the expedition is considered to be very good. Firm offers have been made within, the last tAvo weeks to holders of the sliares, £10 being oid for sliares which are of the nom£ nal value of £1 each.
