Full Text

After considerable effort on the part of officials of the Lake Carriers' Association, there is reasonable assurance that some of the private lights in the St. Mary's river will be replaced next season, even at the opening of navigation, by gas buoys. The representatives of the vessel men s arted (sic) in by trying to assist the light-house officials in the matter of getting a new tender for light-house service on the lakes, and it is quite probable that an appropriation for this vessel will be contained in the sundry civil bill. Commander Ackley, naval secretary of the light-house board, now informs Secretary Keep of the Lake Carriers' that at the opening of navigation the board will probably be able to add six gas buoys to those already established in the waters between Lake Huron and Lake Superior, and certainly will be able to place the four asked for to mark the rock cut near Sailors' Encampment.
