Detroit, June 23 - Capt. J.W. Millen, one of the owners of the CITY OF TOLEDO, authorizes the statement that she will race no more this season.
      "The CITY OF TOLEDO has established herself as one of the fastest boats out of this port." said the captain, Monday. "and that is all we wanted. She has done much better running than ever she did on Lake Erie under her former ownership, and we are entirely satisfied with her performance. All the steam yachts and big and little fellows may wait for us as much as they like now; we will race them no more. The steamer has a schedule on which she will run, and this is all she will do the rest of the season. Racing is a strain on the boat and engines that is entirely unnecessary for any purpose than to give her a name."
