Last evening a rousing meeting of the Kingston yacht club occurred at Carruthers Bros. office. The reports of the secretary and treasurer showed that the organization was in a healthy condition. The officers-elect are:
Commodore - J.B. Carruthers
Vice-commodore - Clark Hamilton
Rear Commodore - James Stewart
Secretary - A. Strachan
Treasurer - J. McK. Robertson
Judges - Dr. C.H. Clarke, Clark Hamilton
Time-keepers - J.B. Walkem, G.S. Oldrieve
Referee - A. Horn
Measurer - J. Murray, W.H. Van Tassel

Sailing Committee - Messrs. Major Wilson, W.H. Macnee, C.F. Gildersleeve, Dr. Clarke, Dr. Garrett, J.B. Walkem, G.S. Oldrieve, Dr. Simpson, Col. Fairtlough, Dr. Curtis, J.C. Woods, John Strange, Lieut. Rivers, J. McK. Robertson.
J.B. Carruthers, Major Wilson and Dr. Simpson were appointed delegates to the annual meeting of the Lake Yacht Racing Association and the club unanimously decided that their representatives should oppose any change in the present measurement of the yachts in the various classes. It is thought that the annual regatta will occur either the last week in July or the first week in August. The prospects point to fine races, as six new yachts are expected to compete.
