TNE COURTSEY-HANLON RACE.
A correspondent of the World at Mon
treal writes of tbe Couitney-IIanlon boat
race, at Lacbine to-day, that in reality tbe
race is for a stake of $2,000, $1,000 side. A
purse of six thousand is already in the
bank and has nothing to do with the cham
pionship Tbe correspondeBt however
adds that when the articles of agreement
were drawn and did not include the cham
pionship and tbe people of Montreal, fearful
that uuless it did include this condition the
race would not be a success, refused
to otherwise provide the purse. The
Hanlon club thereupon signed a contract
with the citizen*' committee, in which they
agreed that in case of the defeat of Hanlon,
Courtney should succeed to the title of
champion of America. By reason of this
contract, should Courtney win, he will have
laid such claim to the title of champion as
to be able to dictate terms and place for any
other race pretty much as he pleases.

dians in tbe gang, and they took with them
tbe cattle herd, in which are about 600 head.
