Harker was supposd to have run away with the treasure of Santa Barbara Cathedral and hidden it somewhere near his home. Of the many who were seeking this treasure, last seen in 1811, none were more determined than the noted occultist Abner Brown and his circle. Chance interested the boy in the search for the treasure. In his search he receives the help of the Midnight Folk. The story describes the adventure of the two parties of seekers and the final discovery of what had happened to the missing treasure.
