p.2 Kingston and Brockville Regatta - In reference to the report sent by the Mail reporter as to the position of Kingston with respect to the Brockville regatta, we are informed that the part referring to Kingston was the result of information given in that town. This is what we expected, but who ever gave the information did so most unfairly. The Kingston Celebration Committee had no intention of running against Brockville; in fact it was announced that the latter place did not intend to celebrate at all. It was only after the Kingston programme had been announced that the Brockville people thought of the counter-attraction.

The Drowned Man - recovered off Four Mile Point; lost off Ada Medora; inquest gives verdict of "accidentally drowned."
