Very Little significance attaches to Thorn for while the several parties Naho nominations the voting is Dono on local issues and the men and not their politics count with the citizens. Trio most surprising pre election incident was the defeat of John e. Van Nostrand for renomination As supervisor of Newtown by Tho Republican convention. At the same time Emanuel Baudou was thrown overboard by the democratic convention As a candidate for Justice of the peace. Or. Van Nostrand and or.

The town is strongly Republican but Tho democratic nominee May win with the Helo of the waterworks Voto. Or. Townsend Defeated Martin v. Wood last year and he is considered a stronger Man than or. Smith. The Smith influence helped to defeat or. Wood and democrats Are expecting the Wood influence to return the compliment. Or.

The election of or. Townsend is confidently expected. John m. Clark has both nominations for supervisor of North Hempstead and will undoubtedly have a Walkover. David l. Van Nostrud in Bipire of Aro a Lection in Flushing in Oyster Bay it is going to be a Strong race Between Scudder v. Whitney Democrat and his Nephew Frederick w. Willetts. Or.

All Tho Amateur oarsmen May be seen on surrounding Waters a what the various clubs Are going to do during the summer. During Tho past week Thoro has Boon signs of activity in and around Tho boat houses on Tho balt urge Shore. The Large float stages which have been lying on Tho Beach All Tho Winter have been thoroughly overhauled and after receiving the ubi Ial Coats of tar they Are now ready to be placed in position for Tho season. If Tho weather permits to Day will witness Largo numbers of the oarsmen afloat in gigs Neils and barges enjoying their first practice spin. The season will be a most Active one in aquatic sports As great interest has already been manifested among the oarsmen and arrangements have already Boon concluded for a number of interesting events. The Brooklyn clubs will chose their Strong eat and Best oarsmen to represent them in Tho Early Spring regattas. The most interesting event of the Early rowing Aea son is Tho regatta of Tho Passaic River rowing association to to hold on decoration Day. It is to this event that the oarsmen flock in great numbers and the races have always proved interesting in Tho extreme. Tho contests Promise to prove of unusual interest this year As All the Best oarsmen of this City Harlem Boston Philadelphia and elsewhere will compote. Tho Brooklyn contingent will be made up of Crews from the Yanina Nautilus sea Wachaka Ravenswood and probably Tho Crescent clubs. In Many instances new boats have been purchased during the Winter and the Brooklyn crows will Start in Tho races equipped equal to Auy in Tho country. Tho Yamuna boat club has purchased a Largo Stook of new boats and will turn out a larger number of oarsmen than any other organization in this Vicinity. That Captain Tigho has been wide awake during the Winter Mouths is apparent when it is known that been making extensive plans for Tho rowing men. Tho Ono thing that a Brooklyn oarsman has had to contend with is the Lack of a proper course of pro Ticino with shells. That Bay Ridge Shore is not adapted for training has become apparent and although the Brooklyn oarsmen have outstripped the smooth water crows in Many a aquatic struggle it was Only extra hard work and Groat physical strength that brought them across Tho line winners in Many Large events. Captain Tighe thinks to has at last succeeded in solving Tho question of practising for races Aud has already made arrangements for the location of a training House at Sheepshead Bay where smooth water can be obtained at All times. A Ono Story Structure will to erected at a Point convenient to the Railroad depot and in Lesa than a month the Crews of the club will to working hard for the decoration Day races. Tho location of the boat Houie will be at a Point just at the Mouth of Coney Island Creek where it flows into Sheepshead Bay. A course of about Ono and one half Miles can be obtained but it is not a Straightaway and could not be used for racing purposes on account of a strip of land which juts out making it impossible to Lay out a straight course. Tho place will however be amp Model Ono for training Crews and if the Varuna a colors Are not Jarriod across Tho finish line ahead in a Largo number of events this season it will not to because Thoy have not the facilities for training. Heretofore Brooklyn oarsmen have been compelled to journey daily to Harlem or Passaic in order to obtain Good water on which to train for races. Tho Offe ots of rowing at Harlem and Passaic Havo always been Felt by the Brooklyn men. And oftentimes within a week of the races Tho Crew would to taken with a slight attack of malaria which would incapacitate them for a hard struggle. The course at Sheepshead Bay. Beside being smooth at All times is open to the sea breezes and Tho Salt air Aud surroundings Combine to make it an Ideal training course. It will Only to a question of a few years when every Ono of Tho local boat clubs will to compelled to relinquish the places Thoy now hold and the March of Commerce will drive them All below fort Hamilton to next available location is sheep head Bay and it is Probach that in less than five years every one of Tho Brooklyn club will Havo their houses on Tho shores of either Coney Island facing Sheepshead or on the Mainland facing the Ocean. The club Fleet of Tho Yamuna boat club will be greatly increased within a week or two when the builders who Havo been fortunate enough to receive orders for Choice racing Craft will deliver Tho boats. Blake of Boston u overhauling a Ruddick double Shell which Captain Tighe purchased when at Yor Coster. The club also four cared Shell from Waters of Troy. The new Shell is of the latest design measuring 41 feet in length Aud having 19 inched beam with the carrying Linos Well Forward and aft of the cockpit. Kernst now Patent swivel warlocks will be fitted to Tho boat and she will be rigged with Fine French steel outriggers. She will be one of the lightest and so of text that has Ever been turned out by Waters and promises in every was to is a Model i acing Craft. A four cared racing Barge is being built for the club by Blake of Boston. The Craft will be of the working boat class and will to designed and built of the lightest material. She will be rigged with sliding seats and Davis Patent warlocks. The carrying capacity of the boat will to Only five p3rsons and her lines will to formed for Swift rowing. Tho boat will be named Tho John Courtney As sheriff Courtney who has been for some time a prominent member of the club and one that has always been greatly interested in seeing the club colors brought to the front by its plucky Young oarsmen Lias presented the Craft to the club. A now eight cared Barge will be ordered in a few Days and Captain Tighe is hustling around to get a boat builder who will Turu out a fast rough water Barge in a Short time. The Nautilus boys have already begun to Procaro for the season and a new four cared Shell has been Milt by Waters of Troy for their use. Ftp Tail Waring is very sanguine of the Success of the club in racing this season and expresses Confidence in Tho ability of the. Young athletes to win Back Tho prestige which thib organization held a few years ago. A Junior four cared Crow will be formed in about a week and from present indication a very a Trong team will to got together. Arthur Prentiss Tho powerful All round athlete and Tho stroke of the Junior Crew of 1889, which gave Tho Fant Varuna Junior Crew such a close race for the Eanolf. Cup will occupy the stroke seat. Joseph Phillips a tall and Strong Young Junior oarsman will Row in seat no. 3, Aud will Carndley who also rowed in a Junior four cared Crew will Row in no. 2 heat. The Bow Man has not been Choson a yet but there Are a number of experienced men in the club who have never competed in a race and who can be called upon to steer the Sholl. A four cared gig Crew will Alao be formed and the Mot powerful men in the club will probably handle the oar. Don 8. Voorhees the powerful senior Oiin Mian will probably stroke Tho Crew and along with such Strong rowers As Gus Hillman will Holden and Rudy Hillman a Crew could be formed equal physically to any in this Vicinity. Tho club during the Pait few months has increased in membership and some of the new clubman Are Strong in athletics. It is probable that Early in the a Eaton a Junior four cared Shell Crew will be formed to compete in Tho Early Spring regattas. The members of the Ravenswood boat club Aro As Busy As they can to just now. The Largo Fleet of Craft belonging to the club is being overhauled and repaired and to Day a Large number of the members will take the first Row of the season. The club has decided to add to its feet a new four cared Barge a double gig two single gigs and one or two pair cared gigs. Tho club Lias the reputation of being an Early starter and before the Frost is out of Tho ground Many of to preliminary arrangements for the rowing season arc decided on. Two Crews have already been formed and Captain Burden has placed to coaching of the men under the guidance of Adolph Bushman Tho famous double Shell oarsman. The club will enter a four Zarod gig Crew or a four cared senior Sholl Crew in the decoration Day regatta on the Passaic Aud Musliman Aud liar key will probably enter in Tho double Shell event. The Inteso rivalry which has existed Between the Varuna and Ravenswood boat clubs in the senior Shell event will be continued this season. Ever since Amy Platt Tho crack double Shell oarsman resigned from the Ravenswood there has been a feeling Akin to War Between the doubles of both clubs. The vaginas Defeated the Ravenswood in the Middle states regatta and again at Tho National last year but Bushman and Sharkey a Are confident that they will defeat Platt Aud froth this season. # Tho sea Wachaka boat club it is said will again be in the front rank in rowing circles. Captain John Banken during the Many years to has been connected with Tho sport has earned the title of a Hustler Aud to promises this season to outdo All his former attempts in thib line. The club has increased greatly in membership during the past six months and Tho club House on Bedford Avenue is crowded every a cuing with Strong Young athletes and members who Promise to take an interest in rowing this season. A training House has Beau procured and will to located at a advantageous position on Newtown Crook where Trio crows which the club has turned out in recent years have trained. The course is not Tho Best in Tho world but the Creek affords a stretch of smooth water of about half a mile in length on which a Good spurt can Beotta ipod. A Junior four cared Shell Crew will be formed Early in the Spring and it is said that their incentive is the Eagle cup which is now held by the Varuna boat club. The first valuable trophy which was presented by the Brooklyn Eagle to Tho Long Island rowing association was won Throe times by the sea Wachaka Crew and became Tho property or Tho club. Its Junior Crew was Defeated last season in Tho race for the new Eagle cup and it is said that a great Effort will be made to wrest the plate from Tho Van Mas. Dame Rumor has also circulated the report that Tho old Tima Champion four cared Shell Crew of Tho sea Wanchak amps will to got together again and the Raon will go into Active training for All Tho important regattas of Tho season. The members of the Crew Are Adolph Ravo Tho fast senior sculler John Fogarty Tho old Lime Champion pair cared rower Bob Pelton the old time Champion and Junior sculler and a. Ross Tho powerful Stroko of Tho Crew. The club has a Large Fleet of Rao inc and pleasure Craft and it is Nob Likely that any additional boats will be purchased during Tho Early Spring. After the Many struggle for aquatic supremacy Havo been decided on decoration Day the Crews of the Brooklyn boat clubs will remain in training for the Ilar Lom regatta which will to rowed on the old course from Gates lumber Dock to my combos dam Bridge this year. Tho Date has been changed and instead of decoration Day the races will be decided on june 13. The next event which will engage the attention of the ours Raen will be the regatta of the Middle states association which will probably be held on july 4 on Tho old National course at Passaic. Tho regatta of the National association of Amateur oarsmen will to held this season on the Potomac River near Washington. This is in reality Tho rowing event of Tho rear and All previous regatta Are Only preliminaries to the great struggle for championship honors. In Theao events the local oarsmen Aro brought into direct Competition with Tho Best rowers of the East with its Conter of rowing on the Charles River at Bast a the West with its Center of rowing on Pullman Lake at Chicago and the canadians who haunt the Waters around Toronto Bay. That Tho Brooklyn oarsmen will make a creditable showing in the National races there in no doubt and it is probable that two or three championship emblems will be captured by Tho boat clubs of this City.
