Motor Boat Races Held By Yacht Club -



Port Hope, Ont., Aug. 26th - Messrs. McMahon Bros., while out overhauling their nets, found the spar of a schooner afloat in the lake about two and a half miles south of west from Port Hope Harbor. About four feet of the butt end of the spar stood out of the water and the stick had the saddle and thumb cleats attached. It is supposed to be one of the spars of the schooner Emerald, which has not been heard of for some four years - though nothing is known of her wreck.

The McMahon Bros. towed the stick about half a mile with their launch, but dropped it because it was so heavy. It is probable that considerable of the rigging is still attached to the lower end. Capt. T.W. Clarke, of the life boat service, went out to further investigate.

Long At The Helm - Niagara Falls, Aug. 26th - Capt. Richard F. Carter has been in command of Maid of the Mist for 25 years.
