Vesselmen Interested in the Suggestion of a Revenue Cutter.
The tug Ferris leaves today with the schooners Clara Youell and F.H. Burton, coal laden, for Kingston. These are the last schooners at this port ready to sail.
All the coal trestles have closed down for the season and with the return of the Ferris it is probable that Collector Cooper will direct the harbor lights be discontinued for the season. The life saving stations will also be closed for the year.
The suggestion in the Palladium that the Government maintain a revenue cutter or patrol boat upon Lake Ontario, that in times of storm and distress could go to the rescue of a crew or vessel in distress, meets the approval of sailormen, vessel and steamboat masters, and owners are in favor of such a boat.
It has been years since a revenue cutter was stationed on Lake Ontario, and a move on the part of those interested might result in bringing about such a boat as is desired - one large and powerful enough to go in any weather.
