Beeson's Marine Directory.— In issuing

the 25th annual number of this indispensable

directory of the marine interests

on the Great Lakes, the publisher

refers to the initial issues and the reception

accorded them and adds: "Today,

with a large Canadian following, in

addition to our patronage in the States,

it is as widely known and circulated as

such a medium can be. . . And I

shall continue this publication and seek

to make it of increased value to all concerned."

The directory contains all the

information about the Great Lakes

marine to which owners and managers

constantly need to refer, and this is arranged

in a most convenient manner for

reference. A special article on the Chicago

Sanitary District and the proposed

harbors is of interest to Canadian

marine men, on account of the influence

the Chicago Drainage Canal and its

[p. 795] possible development as a navigation route

to the Gulf of Mexico may have on the

water level of the Great Lakes. A large

number of illustrations are given, including

the new Canadian bulk freighter

Toiler. The directory is published by H.

C. Beeson. 1340 Washington Boulevard,

Chicago, Ill.

The Department of Marine has issued

lists of all lights and fog signals on the

inland waters and the Pacific coast of

Canada, corrected up to April 1.
