PAGE TEN INSURANCE FRAUD STUNT PROVES RANK FAILURE (Continued from Page 6, Column 3) for natural death, and understood that my husband was to get $4000, George was to get $4000 and the captain of the boat was to get $2000," Mrs. Wiley declared to District Attorney Asa Keys. "It was a surprise to me when I learned today that the policy called for an additional $10,000 to be paid on the policy in case of accidental death. "I attempted to discourage my hus- band at first when he was considering entering this dreadful scheme and we had several quarrels about it. Eventu- ally, I gave in. My husband was to change his name to Richard D. Stone and skip the country and I was to re- main here for a while as the widow of John D. Wiley and later rejoin my husband and re-marry him under the name of Stone." Statement By Mr. King Mr. R. P: King, of 797 Pacific Elec- tric building, Los Angeles, who was one of the passengers on board the Catalina Flyer at the time of the ac- cident, reported the matter at 6 o'clock Sunday evening to the Avalon police. According to Mr. King, the Catalina Flyer, Captain J. MacAfee, left Avalon harbor at 10:30 o'clock Sunday morn- ing with ten passengers for a trip around the Island. "We had passed the harbor on the west side, and the sea was quite rough," said Mr. King. "I think Mr. Wiley had gone to the upper deck to get something and that he stumbled and fell over the rail. A life preserver was thrown over im- mediately, but as far as i could see ithe body did not come to the surface. We circled about for thirty minutes, but could not find it. Then we came back to Avalon. "Mrs. Wiley, who was also a passen- ger on the speed boat, was almost frantic when told that her husband had fallen overboard." All efforts to find other passengers who were on board the Catalina Flyer Sunday when the "accident" happened were unsuccessful. They had gone to the mainland. Captain Joseph MacAfee, owner of the Catalina Flyer, after returning to Avalon bay, immediately boarded the regular' cr0ss-channel steamer to "re- port the accident to the government at San Pedro," Mr. King said. When Mr. King s:(ated Sunday even- ing that "a man had fallen overboard from the Catalina Flyer and had been drowned," a number of Avalon boat- men and, officials of the Santa Catalina Island, Company immediately offered" their services to aid' in the search for the recovery of the body; but so in- definite was the location given by Mr. King that he was not positive that he could return to within several miles of where the accident had happened. Santa Catalina Island is twenty-two miles in length and on the west side of the Island at any point three miles off shore the water is from one to three thousand feet in depth. It ,was stated in the Tuesday morn- ing papers that Captain MacAfee had informed the district attorney of the plot. The other day we received a sample package of Christmas cards. It is sur- prising what "fast talkers" some of the eastern novelty manufactures are! Catalina will give you the rest of your life. Come to Catalina. YACHT RACE SUNDAY FROM BAND PROGRAM The "Pacific Motor Boat" trophy, a $1000 cup that carries with it the coast championship, will be raced for in Los Angeles harbor on Sunday, August 3, under the auspices of the California Yacht Club. Already there are four entries for the classic with others in view. Those sure to go are the Mys- tery, Frank A., and Frank E. Gar- butt's, which is the defender, having won the cup in the initial contest last year; Lucky Strike II, Ah, in E. Frank's Pacific speed record holder, with a mile under 60seconds to her credit; Cecil B. de Mille's swift De- fiance, and the Two Fellows, the craft with which Joe and "Rusty" Fellows believe they can put it over. The song "I Passed By Your Windows," that Win. Hamilton played for an encore to his solo some days ago, was arranged for military band by D. Gilson, flutist of the Catalina Marine Band. Mr. Hamilton played it faultlessly, of course; but Mr. Gilson's splendid arrangement added much to its beauty. A new number used at the con- certs this season has the following rich title: "Papa Loves Mam~"--It illustrates an argmnent between the aforesaid Papa and Mama--Archie Garner takes the part of the ever- present, growling husband, and Win. H. Hanfilton brings out the char- acteristics of the scolding, faultfind- ing wife--A bit of comedy that is really funny. They have the good taste of not over doing it.

Mrs. Porter, wife of the manager of the band, took her first bath of the season yesterday. We lose no time in qualifying this startling news by informing the reader that it was her first salt water bath. A very effective number played at Saturday evening's concert was a duet for cornets. The encore, also a duet, "La Golandrina," the so- called Mexican "Home, Sweet Home," brought out the beautiful tones of these instruments. These numbers were played by Wm. H. Hamilton and Harold Mitchell. The latter gentleman is one of the honeymooners of the band. His wife was in the audience, it is said she whispered to her neighbor, "That's nay husband playing!" Oh, George ! One number at Wednesday even- ing's concert was preeminently in- teresting--"In the Village," from "Caussian Suite," by Ivanoff. The score calls for English horn and violin. The viola part was played by Louis Villelle on the clarinet, and the original English horn part by Caesar Addimando. They both played with a repose which makes the listener feel that the matter is well in hand. Beautiful quality of tone in both instruments, perfect timing, a finished performance. The audience insisting on more, Mr. Addimando played a "Dervish Chorus in the Soudan," a particu- | OF NEW YORK ANNOUNCE A DISPLAY OF STREET DRESSES, SPORT DRESSES, EVENING DRESSES, CAPES AND FURS IAL SALE FOR K COMMENCING TUESDAY, JULY 29, 1924 At the HOTEL Mac RAE, ON CRESCENT AVENUE EXHIBITS DALLY FROM 8:30 A.
