p.3 Yachting - An adjourned meeting in favour of getting up a regatta for Dominion Day will be held at the British American Hotel tonight (June 21st) at 8:30, to hear the report of the Subcription Committee, also to make rules and course.

The Regatta - The meeting called for last evening at the British American Hotel was well attended, and was presided over by His Worship the Mayor. After talking the matter over, a subscription list was started and a good sum promised. The regatta promises to be very successful, and if the Belleville boats can be brought down, a good race may be anticipated. Another meeting will be held this evening at the British American Hotel, when the arrangements will be further advanced.
