Some well-known authorities think that giving the ?mailer class? s more attention artll he a boon to th? ?port and w;ll serve to elevate it. It Is evident, from the arrangements already made by the various dubs for the season which is near at hand, that there will be more yachting, more races. more tSMtlnga and larger and more p.-l?t s than ev?r before. The adoption of the uniform ra<-lnp rule? will have e good iffeet 01? the sr-i.rt.
