WON'T REDUCE LAKE LEVEL
_______
COSTE'S OPINION OF DAM AT ST. MARY'S RAPIDS

Ottawa, Ont., August 18. Louis Coste, of the international waterways commission, has returned from Sault Ste Marie, where he went in company with Mr. Mabee, K. C., of Toronto, and Mr. Clinton of Buffalo, to inspect the works which the Michigan Power Co. and the Lake Superior Power Co. have constructed there for the development of electricity, and which have caused the fear that the level of Lake Superior may be lowered. In the opinion of Mr. Coste the level of Lake Superior will not be reduced if a dam with sluice gates is constructed at the head of the St. Mary's rapids and proper regulations are framed as to the disposition of the water.

The international commission will meet at Niagara Falls on September 11 to consider the effect of the proposed dam on Lake Erie.
