THE RESULT OF THE RACE.

EDITORS DAILY CRIMSON. - The statement in yesterday's CRIMSON that the photographs taken at the finish of the class races show open water between the '88 and '89 crews, is misleading. These photographs, as will readily appear upon close examination, were taken at a considerable angle, therefore a correct idea of the finish can not be obtained from them. That there was open water between the two crews is denied by a gentleman on the referee's tug, prominent in rowing matters; also by the testimony of several spectators on the Beacon St. wall, where the best idea of the finish could be obtained. All these persons agree in saying that the '88 boat was between 3 4 and a length ahead of '89.
