p.4 To Be Measured - The yacht Neola, of Big Sodus, which captured first place in one of the thirty foot races in the L.Y.R.A. regatta at Kingston, will be pulled out on the marine railway of the Oswego Yacht Club to be measured by Michael Cummings, the official measurer of the Oswego Yacht Club, of which Harry Scott, the owner of the Neola, is a member. Upon the winning of the Kingston race Mr. Scott was unable to offer any measurements showing that the yacht was under the thirty-foot limit, but if Mr. Cummings finds that she is, the Neola will be awarded the prize money; otherwise it will go to the Theresa, Capt. James Parker, of this city. [Oswego Palladium]
