CONSIDINE BUILI CRAFT
Rainier Will Have Two Representa

Which Smith Built tat Son.
For the first time in several years
Portland motorboats Will Have to face
against fast contenders from Seattle,
which have been sent to the Astoria
regatta, July 3, 3 and 4. Cemmodord
McLaughlin, of the Lake Washington
Powerboat Association, has sent word
to Astoria that the Seattle club will
be represented by ' three boats, the
Wastrell, the Fockey II and the Bed
The Pockey II and the Wastrell al
ready have left for Astoria, having
been shipped Friday, Their power is
unknown and their Biae is not known
locally, but Portland men are never
theless looking for a vaee.
Puget Sound entries thus far have
failed to "bring home the bacon" and
the Seattle men knew that it wa hot
luck, but simply better boats which
beat them. They did not ship any mere
contenders here until they were pretty
Sure that they hai boats Which can
beat those on the Columbia.
Connlillne to Enter fine.
John Considihe, the theatrical magr
tiate, is said to be owner of one of the
coming craft. That means that JieltJief
time nor expense have been saved In
the construction and that the driVei"
Will be the best that Consldlne could
get for money.
Rainier will have two boats in the
Astoria regatta. Ohe of them is the
Oregon Kid II, the boat which Captain
Milton Smith built for his son, It is
the exact duplicate of the Oregon Kid,
which made the Eastern conquest tour
The other Rainier boat is tbo Yak,
which has been pacing the Oregon Kid
at Rainier. The method of racing has
been changed. The motorboat events
will be raced on points. Twenty-seven
roints shall constitute the purse of
406, which makes $15 to the point.
Three Hares oa Programme.
This will hold in all three races, the
18-fost, the -foot and the free-for-all.
That makes nine pdlht for each
day's heats and in that Way boats
Which run- two days atid then break

record for long-distance casting with
quarter-ounce bait Was raised from 96

and Lester W. Humphreys tied at this
distance. Ih accuracy casting with
auartei'-oilnce bait, Dr. McFaHand
made a new club record Of 98 9-1S pet-
The fly casting was unsatisfactory
because of awkward Wind currents and
eddies, which seriously hampered the
casters and prevented their malting
any good scores In the accuracy

himself by easting left-handed. The
fly casting events were neiu at tne
east end of the Hawthorne bridge and
