The EMILY P. WEED, now being built at Bay City, will have an electric search light attached to the pilot house, which will be the first of its kind on a lake boat. The Edison people claim that it will disclose a buoy fully a quarter of a mile off on the darkest night, and can be made to penetrate a dense fog to the distance of 1/2 a mile.
