p.4 Yachting - The Countess of Dufferin - This yacht is still at anchor near Stapleton, Staten Island, nothing having been done to her since she was put out of commission last fall. It is no longer a secret that a difficulty has arisen between Captain Cuthbert, her builder, and Vice-Commodore Gifford, her principal owner, but it is satisfactory to learn that there is every prospect of a solution being reached at an early day. There are many who feel that in view of last year's experience, the yacht should have another opportunity to show what she can do, and it is understood to be the intention of some of our patriotic yachtsmen to see what can be done towards putting the Dufferin in proper trim and securing another contest with the New York yachts before the close of the present season. Arrangements are now in progress to form a stock company, purchase the boat, sail her in New York, and afterwards bring her to the Lakes. As she remains at present she is no credit to anyone, and it is to be hoped that sufficient patriotism will be found in Canada to properly carry out an enterprise which this time last year so many took an interest in.
