Representative citizens of Poughkeepsie convened on Tuesday night to consider the matter of raising more money toward inducing the college oarsmen to row over their course on the Hudson. The meeting was called by the committee of the Apokeepsing Boat Club, which has the matter in hand. Subscriptions to the amount of $200 were at once promised. It is expected that the money needed will be raised.
A committee of the leading citizens has informed Guy Richards of the Regatta Committee that it will provide free transportation for the boats, crews and attendants to and from the universitires. It agrees to build boat houses, survey and buoy the course, and further, to transfer the steam launches of the different universities to the lake and return. To the college students reduced rates at the hotels will be given.
