The acceptance states that eithof the Sergull or tho boat owned by Mr. Trask, now in charge of Mr. McKusick, stands ready at any tune to enter a race with the Moose, and also states that the sooner the race is arranged the better the acceptors of the challenge will be satisfied. It is hoped that preliminary arrangements can be completed in time for the contest to occur on the Fourth. This would be quite a feature among the other sports of the day. All the boats concerned are good ones, and a race between two or all of them would be an interesting one, and would give those spectators who were'sportively-inclined a chance to .show their mettle. Mr. Mc Kusick is willing to race for the fun of the thing or for a cash prize, whichever way will best suit Captain McLaughlin. DENTIST BADLY BURNED.
