During the past week moving pic- tures of the launching of the steam- ship Catalina have been shown at the CATALINA CAPTURED BY HOST OF INVADERS By Chaa. H. Smith Never before has such a battle raged for possession of a little island as that which has recently taken place over beautiful Catalina--the queen pleasure resort of the Pacific. 'The invaders came in great steam- ships, private launches, and by hydro- planes. And they are now in posses- sion of the lee side of the Magic Isle all the way from Avalon to the Isth- mus. The army which has overrun our shores, captured several of the popu- lace, and has taken complete control, is composed of a mixed multitude-- white men, colored men and even a large number of women were with the invading host. And, strange as it may seem, the island inhabitants have offered little resistance to this great army--in fact, they seem to be regarded more with curiosity than fear, though armed with a great number of what might be re- garded as rapid-fire guns, from which they have taken many "shots." Yes, the camera man, the property man, the director, the promoter, the stars, little and big, and a great num- ber of supernumeraries, are now in possession of Catalina. Up at the Isthmus a certain Fox is in possession. He has his multitude of adherents hard at work upon a pro- duction entitled, ',A Man Without a Country." A little this side of Long Point the great United States transport steam- ship Beauford rides at anchor. But that is not the name which now ap- pears upon her stern. It is "The Nav- igator," and that also is the title of the great South Sea island production in which Buster Keaton has an army of men producing spirited scenes. Coming nearer home, in beautiful Descanso bay, in front of the Hotel St. Catherine, C.
