Lund, a saloon-keeper of San Pedro, accompanied by his brother and two friends, left for a pleasure trip to Catalina Island. Nothing more was heard of them until yesterday morning, when the news came irom Catalina that the boat had drifted on the beach there bottom upwards, and there is every rea son to believe, therefore, that its occu pants were drowned. On receipt of the news telephonic com muuication was at once established between this office and San Pedro, and at the Central office there it was stated that nothing was known ot the affair. No such story had been generally circu lated about town, said the speaker. And passengers oil the boat from Catalina were also in ignorance on the subject. A.
