p.3 The harbour is still open - a remarkable fact on the 28th of January.

p.4 Toronto Point Light

(To the Editor of the Globe)

Sir; I am pleased to see by the Harbour Master's report in Wednesday's Globe that he recommends a change of Toronto Point light to a revolving one, which is very much required, and what should have been done by the Government years ago, as Toronto Point is the only harbour of refuge that we have at the head of Lake Ontario, and it requires a good light. The present one is a miserable affair. It is almost impossible to find it in running up the lake with what a sailor calls a dirty north-easter. I would recommend a first-class revolving light, varied by red flashes, to distinguish it from other lights; and also that Toronto Point, Port Dalhousie, and Long Point should have a steam fog horn instead of bells, which are of very little use.
