p.3 Regatta - A meeting was held at the British American Hotel last night, for the purpose of taking steps for having a regatta on Dominion Day. The opinion seemed to prevail that if one were held, it would interfere seriously with the large regatta intended to be held in the fall, and as the subscriptions are limited to a certain number of gentlemen, it would be unfair to make too many calls upon their generosity. If there is a race at all therefore, it will be a small one.
