WON BY IROQUOIS.
On Saturday at Charlotte, N.Y., in the first race in the Canada Cup series the Iroquois proved the better boat and won the first race over the triangular course by two minutes forty seconds. During the afternoon the wind dropped till the lightest airs fanned the sails of the racing machines. The race began at 11:01 a.m., and finished at 3:45 p.m. The course was triangular, three miles to the leg, twice around. Iroquois began to lead almost from the start and at the first half of the course led the Canadian boat by one minute and thirty five seconds.
p.5 Seek His Dismissal - A private investigation into charges preferred against Hull Inspector Davis, by H.S. Folger, was conducted on Saturday afternoon by E.
