p.2 Yachting - A Kingston correspondent writes to the Belleville Intelligencer that there will be a regatta here on Dominion Day for second and third class yachts. The prizes will be about the same as last year. The Intelligencer also speaks very favourably of the new ten ton yacht which Cuthbert is building for a gentleman in Kingston, and which will soon be ready. She is to be called the Emma, and she will be a racer.
