p.2 Lake Ontario Frozen Solid - Oswego, March 11th - A survey of the ice field of Lake Ontario was made today from the survey station, 224 ft. above the lake level. The ice was found to be solid in all directions as far as the glass could reach, except due north from the harbour, where open water appeared at a distance of 17 miles and extended over the horizon. The ice field consists entirely of rough hummocks.
