The annual congress and tournament of the American Bowling Association were held in Milwaukee, Wis., last winter, but only one New-York, team attended, not Winning any of the chief honors. The ab– Sence of New-York bowlers was due to the Split in the ranks of the association due to the insistence by the Western Clubs of the use of the loaded balls, Which are against the rules in New-York. The loaded ball has now been practically abolished and New—York is expected to Send a goodly delegation to the COIngress and tournament of 1906, which will be held March 5 to 10, at Louisville, Ky.

! YACHTING.

THE SEASON OF 19:05, }

There were no international races for the America's Cup in the season of 1905, and the yachting interest of the year was
chiefly centred in the ocean races annong the big schooners and the club cruises. There was some talk at the end of the year
of another international challenge for this season to come from Sir Thomas Lipton, but no challenge was forthcoming, and
the absence of designers in England made it seem unlikely that one would be received for the next year.

There was a series of races for the Seawan haka. Y. C. international trophy for small yachts between the Alexandra, the
defender of the trophy selected by the Royal St. Lawrence Y. C., and designed by F. P. Shearwood, and the Manchester, the
challenger, which represented the Manchester (Mass.) Y. C., and which was designed by E. A. Boardman. The challenger
In ad everything her own way and won three straight races for the cup. She was about three minutes ahead in each of the first
two races, and nine and a half minutes faster in the last race. t

Another international series was held for the Canada Cup for 43-footers. This was also won by the Americans, who
defended the trophy, with the Herreshoff built Iroquois, representing the Rochester Y., C., the holder of the cup. The Royal

Canadian Y. C. challenged with the Fife boat Temerasre, and the series was very closely contested, each boat winning two
of the first sour races. The American Iroquois finally won the fifth race, however, , and kept the cup at home for another year. .
The international ocean race for the Kaiser's Cup was sailed in the latter part of May across the ocean, starting from ,

Sandy Hoolc and finish in g at the Lizard, off the south coast of England. Fleven yachts made the trip, eight of them.
American, two English and one German, all schooner or yawl rigs. Wilson Marshall's three-masted schooner Atlantic
finished first by nearly a whole day, while the German entry, the Hamburg, was second.
The Eastern Y. C. of Boston, and the Royal Nova Scotia Y. C. of Halifax held a joint ocean race in #o. starting from
Marblehead and finishing off Halifax. Six yachts started and the race, was won by the schooner Elmina, of New-York.

The standing at. the end of the season was as follows:
