make any difference to us out here. We
expect to go on selling the goods as usual."

liability thereof in order to assure the suc
eea of th plan ot purchasing and retiring

plan to bo of great value to-the defendant
corporation and Its stockholder.

yacht Arab IV, owned by John H. Cam

over the city, late In. the evening and cap
sited. The 'boat" is a twenty-one footer

William Coyey. .a
K. S. Haakln.
Arthur Barber, skipper of Arab IV. ;
When the storm struck th yacht no at
tempt" Bad ( -fceen made to reef sail, and
with all, if-canvas flying, th boat, with
tea merrymakers aboard who were wholly
unconscious of danger, want over In a
flash? filled 1ntan44y and left eight per
son struggling for life In the water of
th lake,' three mile from shore.
Their predicament wa given added ter
ror by the ' fury of th water, lashed by
the storm, and by th constant lightning.
By hsrole effort on th part of th men
the women were supported In the water
until they could be given a firm hold en
the overturned boat. The yacht a It
left It mooring had, fortunately, towed
along behind It a email yawl.
6ettlng to work to right th yawl, which
had been dragged under and filled with
water when the larger boat went over, the
men finally got all but Cameron and Bar
ber and the two drowned parsons Into, It
and started for th lone row to th shors
in ths face of th choppy water and a
trong wind which mad It a herculean
task to make the boat mov through th
water at all.
Along toward midnight Harry Boylan, th
steward of th Columbian Yacht club, heard
a hall of th faintest kind com from out
th darkness of th club, house. ' lowly
th heavily-laden rowboat came creeping
up to the landing with the women La a
stats ot collaps and Corey so xhauated
that he could hardly move the oars. All
he could say was, "Send out lit ssvlng
crews. Arab -overturned. Two dead and
more clinging to boat,"
Cameron and Barber when found were
nearly exhausted and about to drop from
tbe boat. They had despaired ot rescue
before dawn. Cameron was In state of
collaps owing to hi anxiety for th safety
ot his wife and Miss Cameroa and grief at
the death of younj Jensen and Mia Tay
lor, whom a knew had not ba saved.
Th bodies of th two young person
drowned were found In th cabin ot th
yacht whan th boat was towed Into th
harbor at 7 a. m. today. Presumably th
boy and girl who had met death had taken
refuge In the yacht' cabin when the storm
broke and wr unable to extricate them
selves when the boat went over.
The Arab IV wa built last spring and
took part la ths races for the Bir Thorn
Llpten cup. The boat finished second ta
th race. The yacht carried only a mala
sail and Jib.
