SUPPOSED SUICIDE OF
RETIRED BUSINESS MAN
Tho body of John Clianslor, a guest
nt tho Moana hotel, was found floating
in the water near tho bathing pontoon
this morning about C o'clock. Threo
natlvo boys who had been out fishing
discovered tho corpse between tho pior
nnd thu float.
It appears that Mr. Clianslor, who
was accompanied by his son and n
trained nurso, arrived nt tbu Moana
hotel nbotit,, threo wcokB ngo. Thu
party brought their nutomobllo and
chauffeur with them, and Intended
making an "extended stay In tho Is
lands. Tho Junior Mr. ChniiBlor bad
Just returned from a trip to the Vol
cano, nnd was grieved to notice bow
Ill bis father appeared. Mr. Clianslor
8r., has boon an Invalid for tho past
two years and Is roportcd to havo ex
pressed n wUli that bo wcro dead.
Tho nurso states that at 4 o'clock
this morning gho visited Mr. Chans
ior's room, nnd that apparently ho wns
then asleep. Aftor looking nt her
patient sho retired to her own room,
mid know nothing else till sho wns
aroused by tho hotel people, who In
formed her of tho finding of tho body.
Tho corpse, which wns fully dressed
with the exception of u day-Bhtrt, had
only been In tho wnter for a short
time, and had not gouo to tho bottom.
Mr. Clianslor wns a retired oil mag

Charley," way warmly npplauded. Fow
In the nudlenco realized that It was n
llttlo girl In tho part, and many wero
tho expressions of "Oh, Isn't he n darl
ing," "You dear little chap," etc. Lloyd
Edwards na Cnptaln Allen has one of
tho best parts that has fallen to him In
bis career nnd ho carries It off In a
splendid manner. Miss Luce ns tho
Colonel's nlcco Is delightfully nalvo
nnd Bho caused many to wonder why
"Captain Allen was so slow In popping
tho question." Plctro Sosso ns Philip
Gordon wns pleasing as always. Mr.
Sosso Is an earnest, conscientious act
or who puts his wholo soul Into bis
work, nnd tho result Is a clever por
trayal or any part ho assays. Clarcnco
Ferguson as tho. vllllanoiis Mexican
Del Moro, does n bit of character work
that proves him nn actor of consider
Ohio ability. As a rulo ho appears In
'old men" parts, but In his prosont
character, ono would nover suspect
him of playing the kindly old gcntlo-
man, so creditably does ho tuko tho
part of tho "Heavy." Oco. Fernandez
ns tho peppery old "Colonel" furnishes
several laughs; It is hard for bis ad
mirers to nccept lilm in an j tiling but
a comedy role and no matter in what
part ho appears, tho "laugh" is ulvyays
ready for Gcoige. Anna Dodge makes
good ns "Aunt Hulda," und nil tho.oth

Lights" Is the offering for tonight.
