p.1 Won The Yacht Race - The yacht White Wings, of Hamilton, in winning the race off Toronto on Saturday, won the Murray Cup, valued at $500, the championship flag of the Toronto Yacht Club, and $15 in cash. The wind was a good topsail breeze, and as it came rather in puffs, made the yachts at times keel over until their lee decks were awash. The entries were: Verve, Cyprus, Escape, White Wings of Hamilton. The start was made at 2:30 and at 5:20:40 the White Wings finished being 35 minutes ahead of the Verve and 1 hour and 25 minutes ahead of the Cyprus.
