p.4 Want A Lighthouse - R.R. Finkle, Bath, joint owner of the Middle Brother Island, in Bay of Quinte, has been to Ottawa, with a petition asking that a light house be erected on the island. He was ably assisted by Uriah Wilson M.P., Hon. George Kirkpatrick and Hon. Mackenzie Bowell. Mr. Finkle and C.L. Rogers have a lease of the island for a term of twenty-five years.
