Oa being aaked what tney expected to do for coal, he replied that some time aeo he bad purchased for $2,000 the Island of San Elmo, which they had made a depot for coal and guns. The Island of San Elmo Is one of the btoud of Pearl Islands in this bay. It la well located for auch a purpose, but the assertion of Bxadsbaw that It had been made a depot for guns sad coal. Is not correct. Bbapshaw also sta'ad that altnough they had failed la the attempt to seize the Cwafsmafa.they had aotyet given up ail hope of securing the ship.
