p.2 An international regatta took place at Toronto yesterday. There were ten entries. The race was won by the Lord Stanley, the Ina being second, Oriole third, Brunette fourth and Coral fifth. The race is off on account of the Lady Stanley not having gone round a buoy which had sunk off Mimico Point. The race will be sailed again on Saturday.
