Yacht Club Meeting
The annual meeting of the Kingston yacht club was held last evening. The attendance was very large. In the absence of the commodore, Lieut. Bruce Carruthers, who has so splendidly acquitted himself in South Africa, the chair was taken by the vice-commodore, J.H. Macnee. The election of officers resulted as follows:
Commodore, J.H. Macnee; vice-commodore, Sandford C. Calvin; rear commodore, R. Easton Burns; secretary, Charles Kirkpatrick; treasurer, Frank Strange; measurer, Henry Cunningham; executive committee, Dr. Black, J.J.C. Almon, James Conway, Ross Murphy and A.C. Johnston; regatta committee, K.A. Cameron, Col. Drury, J.A. Dalton, Frank Strange and H. Waddell; auditors, S. McBride and T.J. Rigney.
The secretary's and treasurer's reports were very satisfactory, the financial statement showing a balance on hand. During the year the members have purchased about $115 worth of stock from the yacht club company (limited). During the six years the yacht club has been in existence, the members have purchased about $900 worth of stock, leaving only about $550 more to buy. The membership of the club exceeds 200, a small gain over last year. Resolutions of thanks were passed to the retiring officers.
