I know the bootlegger is honest;" MORE THAN 300,000 VISITORS From January l, 1924, to noon, July 20, 309,856 passengers have landed from the mainland at the steamer pier of the Santa Catalina island Company, an increase of more than twenty-five per- cent over the corresponding period for the year 1923. The new million-dollar steamship Catalina is now making daily trips, and it is the addition of this "Ferryshlp to the Fairyland fleet to which much of the increased business is ascribed. It is the opinion of the officials of the transportation company that more than a quarter of a million passengers will be brought to Avalon during the months of August and September. "If the million-passenger mark is not reached for 1924, it will be reached in the year of 1925," said Mr. John N. Stewart, vice-president and general traffic manager for the e'ompany. "Catalina Island is the most popular pleasure resort on the Pacific Coast. A visit .to any of the other beaches does not "show a thousand or more persons in bathing every day. From the Ho- tel St. C~therine to Pebbly Beach is one vast swimming pool, more than a mile in length. It is not uncommon to find a thousand or more bathers any afternoon at Catalina Island." WRIGLEYS HOMEWARD BOUND M Announcement was made Tuesday that Mr. and Mrs. William Wrigley, Jr., and party had left Chicago, due to arrive in Los Angeles Saturday morning in time to board the steam- ship Catalina for Avalon. So far, Mr. and Mrs. Wrigley have only seen photographs of the new mil- lion-dollar steamship, completed a month ago by the Los Angeles Ship- building and Drydock Corporation. A number of improvements have been made to the Wrigley Avalon home, Mt. Ada, during the past month, and it is understood that they will oc- cupy this home during August, instead of opening their residence at Pasa- dena. Big schools of albacore have been reported for several days during the past week. Harry Warner reports a catch of twenty,one in one day from the launch Ethel.
