Monday's dispatches from Buffalo claim that the electric search light to be placed on the new propeller Emily P. Weed was the first to be ordered for a lake steamer. As a matter of fact, a search light of the most powerful kind was ordered for the new steel propeller Maryland some time ago and yesterday was placed in position by the Fisher Electrical Company of this city. The order for the Weed's light was closed only Monday and has not yet been filled, so that Detroit builders can safely lay claim to the introduction of this new factor in navigation on the lakes.
