Ing. In the morning the weather was
somewhat thick, tout early In the after
. noon It become clear and pleasant, and
'had the wind been stronger there -would
have been nothing lacking to make the
occasion successful in every respect. As
it was, fhe fish boat race, In which there
were, fifty two entries, could not foe
finished within the timo allowance, and
consequently had to be declared off.
The Manzanlta, wihlch took the place of
the Colurrfblne as flagship, took tier post
tlon In the stream opposite Flavel's dock
shortly "before 9 o'clock, and was soon
thronged with ladies and gentlemen -who
had 'been invited to view the races from
the steamer's declc.
Promptly at 9 the single scull race was
called, and three contestants appeared,
These were W. J. Patton, D. Franklin
and F. F. Burgcols. The courso was
from 'Plavel's dock, to No. 3 tank buoy
and return, a distance of about two
miles. The race was iwon by Patton, who

'but the time will be figured out thl

this there were hut two competitors, the
oarsmen being w. J. Patton and P. T,

prizes of $75 and $26 respectively being
. onerea ior first ana second.
The course was twice around the trl
angular course and the entrleo were:
1. Lady Clare.
3. Lady Madge.
The Lady Madge was scratched, and
the others crossed the line with the Naiad
first, Lady Clare second, Defender third,
Chinook fourth, and the Monoram last.
Alfter an interesting contest the prize
was won by the Naiad, the Lady Clare
second. The winner's time was 8:51:42,
and the Lady Clare cross-d tie line 2
minutes and 56 secordx later.
Leather's . new boat, the Monogram,
was the second to reach the finish, but
wajs disqualified for failure to start with
in a reasonable time after the signal
gun had been fired. It was almost an
hour after the other boats had started
that the Astoria boat started; and then
ehe had a great advantage over her op
ponents, all of whom had made but lit
tle progress owing to the light winds.
When Leather's boat crossed the line,
however, the wind had freshened consid
erably, and she soon overhauled her
competitors with the exception of the
Naiad, which was the first to complete
the first round of the course. . The Mon
ogram was allowed to finish without pro
test, hut a formal protest was entered
by the captain of one of the other boats
later In the day. After taking the matter
under advisement trte Judges concluded
to disqualify the Monogram. Some little
dissatisfaction existed, of course, over
the decision, but in order to please every
cne the Judges, at the suggestion of
Capt. J. A. Brown, very generously a
special prize for a race for sloops of the
'Monogram class, to be contested today.
In order that the sailing qualities of the
iboats in working to windward may be
thoroughly tested, the course will be
changed considerably, and the buoy north
and west of the etartlng point will be
placed further south and west. Mr. C.
H. Cooper has also offered an additional
prize for the race, and others of the local
merchants will probably make a contri
bution this morning.
The sixth race was for sloops engaged
as cannery tenders and was contested by
the Mayflower and Florence. The dis
tance was twice around the course, and
the prize, 0. The Mayflower had it
pretty much her own way from the start,
and completed the second round of the
course in 3 hours, 16 minutes and 17
The seventh event was a special race
for fisftboata, the prizes being th9 choice
of one bale of either Marshall's or Bar
bour's twine for first, two coils of cork
line for second. The conditions were
