The Tiv Nett Fqy Teks first spin of the manned by professionals. Its member ship comprises most of the Well known Amateur yachtsmen of the country. Nothing in years has contributed so much to the Awakening interest in corinthian racing As the action of the sea Wachaka club in instituting what is Raffl Olally known As the sea Wachaka International Challenge cup for Small the matches for this trophy Are limited to boats whose racing measurement does not exceed the maximum Imit or the so called 25 foot class or fall below the minimum limit of the 15 foot class. The Story of the inception of this race is rather interesting. A new York newspaper Man who is a member of the sea Wachaka and an enthusiastic Canoe St was in England five years ago racing his Canoe in the regattas Over Here. One Day he mentioned to or. Arthur Brand the Well known British Yachtsman that if he would Send a Challenge to the sea Wachaka club for a Small boat corinthian race it would probably be accepted. Or. Brand fell n with the suggestion very heartily and sent Over a Challenge. The result was he sea Wachaka cup. Which has been and has afforded some of the Best sport Ever seen on the Atlantic coast. For two years the sea Wachaka club retained the cup but in js96 the canadians managed to carry it last Spring 11 Little yachts were built to contend for the Honor of trying to win Back the coveted prize. The canadians Milt eight boats from which to select a Lefender. Heavy weather was the Rule luring the trial races. The Momo and designed by the cranes of bos on proved the Best in All work the Momo was finally selected. The Cana Lian boat was the Glencairn ii de ilgner by e. H. Duggan. The breaking of the Tiller of the Cana Dian Craft at the Start of the first race caused her to stave a Hole in her Bow y colliding with the stake boat. By reason of her taking in water she lost he race but she won the others Handly the heavy weather encountered be no clearly in her favor. This year strenuous efforts Are again eng made to win Back the cup. Trial Ces for the purposes of. Selecting the to represent this country will be Leld on july ii 12 and 13. Any Organ cd yacht club May Send a represent Ive to compete in these trial events. He cranes Are building three boats one or Henry c. Eno one for the Crane family and the third for a Syndicate composed of members of the sea Wanha club. Several Western organizations Are also building and As some of the for thames yacht club. The members the sea Wachaka club recognize that one reason of their failure last year was the fact that the Momo was built too rigidly whereas the Canadian racer was put together lightly even to the Point of danger. The consequence was that while the american boat could Only carry 100 or 150 pounds of Lead in her keel a bal last the Canadian Craft was enabled to put in Over 400 pounds which was of. Immense value to her. Although yachtsmen do not approve of making these boats so fragile they recognize that to win the races it must be done. As a matter of fact they strongly disapprove of this sort of boat altogether for after the races Are Over they Are absolutely of no use. The Only Good Point about them is that they serve As excellent training for Amateur yachtsmen. But one does not ordinarily care to go out in a boat in which he has to lie at full length the whole time and perform various acrobatic feats whenever she goes about again these Cockle shells Are too sensitive for Ordi nary purposes. The slightest turn of the Helm will Send them around right on their Keels. A Story is current among the yachtsmen of Long Island sound id regard to the Ethelwynn. One of the american cup defenders. During one of the trial races in the sound the Steersman put Down his Helm and be fore either he or his Crew had time to think the boat had gone around twice. The sort of Craft specially advocated by the sea Wachaka members As Best fitted for Amateur yachtsmen is the knockabout class so popular last year the knockabout properly speaking is a boat with a Mainsail and Foresaid no Bowsprit or at most a very Short one a pole Mast without Topmast and a Cabin. It is Safe and Roomy and especially convenient when ladies Are aboard it is the intention of the race committee of the sea Wachaka club whenever the cup shall be won by an american boat to change the deed if possible so As to make the race for boats that Are less of shells Ana More i like the knockabout and that Are not so expensive to build As the present Type. The last error in the set of a sail will Rendor one of the present Type of rulers of no use. In fact last year the Glen Cairn had a set of silk racing sails. Some of the regulations governing the sea Wachaka cup contest Are interest ing. For instance the helmsman and Crew which is limited to four shall be amateurs. Shifting ballast is not Al Lowed. To outrigger or other Mechan ical service for carrying live ballast outboard is permissible. Sails Are limited to Mainsail jibs and Spinnaker. The formula for determine the racing length under the sea Wachaka Corn Tho election for officers of the inter National typographical Union will take place on Jay 31. For the Erst time la the history of the organization the vote will be taken by the referendum instead of by conventions. It is expected that votes will be cast by the subordinate unions. The amalgamated society of painters and decorators has a membership to new York of Over 6.000, and at the meeting of the Union last week it was decided to organize a Volunteer regi ment 1.000 Strong to take part in the War with Spain about 400 men Cave already enlisted. Denver journeymen plumbers demand that Only one member of a firm allowed to use tools and that he Snail work Only eight hours. The further de Mand is made that no manufactured materials like bolted joints and traps with Ferrules attached shall be permitted in work. They get j4 for eight hours.

J4.mj or per cent were reported As unemployed at the end of March compared with 4.4 per cent at the end of february and with 15 per cent in the 114 Trade unions with a member ship of from which returns were received for March 1897. The National Union of United brewery workmen has refused the request of the Rochester masters Brewers association to modify the contract entered into with general Secretary Bechtold in such a manner As to allow the smaller breweries to pay less than for their of the contract already makes an except Tola where less than three men Are employed in a department.
