For the ccmin r r year it will be under the management of James Owens who so wel managed the team known as the Quicksteps «)fs was a fast aggregation and gave e quietus to the famous Black Diamonds. A schedule Is being arranged which includes the local cracks and some out i of town dates.

Capt. Samuels’ Exploit Far Greater Than the Recent Triumph of Capt. Barr—Veteran Is In Favor of Time Allowance. Now that the Apache has passed the Lizard. Capt Samuel 9amuels sug gests that the race for the German em peror’s cup was "no great shakes” In point of speed, says the New York Commercial. Everybody In the New York shipping world knows Capt. Sam uels. Not to know him argues oneself unknown. Since the days when Capt. Ambrose Snow used to adorn the ban quets of the marine society with his presence and hie speeches, Capt. Sam uels has held the post of patriarch among those of us who go down to the sea in ships. He is admiral of the fleet, retired. If he has done the role of Capt Cuttle occasionally, who will quarrel with him? He is a philosopher, and a philosopher may select any medium of disseminating wisdom.

Meanwhile Capt. Samue'&—of the same stuff as John Paul Jones of the Bon Homme Richard —rises to observe that there can be no fair racing be tween unevenly matched vessels with out a time allowance. Somßlandsmen will agree with him, even if all tea men don’t The drama embraces and applies all the beauties and decorations of poetry.
