LIGHTS ON GEORGIAN BAY. - For the guidance of shipping visiting the lumber sections in Georgian Bay there has been established by the Dominion Government no less than eleven lights, nine of which number are located on islands and can be seen from as far distant as any others on the lakes. At the entrance to the bay is the Isle of Coves, the light of which is on the northeast point; on Griffith Island, on the northeast end, twenty miles from Owen Sound; Nottawasaga Island, about four miles northwest from Collingwood; Collingwood on a breakwater pier; Christian Island, on the southeast part, one and a half miles from main land; Lonely Island, position not given; Red Rock, one mile east of Killarney, on Red Rock Point; Partridge Island, one and a half miles east of Red Rock Light; Range lights at Shaftsbury or Little Current; Clapperton Island, on North Point; Sulphur Island on Southeast side. Since the above organization the disasters to the shipping in that region have been very few. Other lights, beyond doubt, whenever and wherever needed, will be supplied.
