p.1 Requesting Information - Harbor inspector McCammon, today, received a communication from Wm. Smith, Deputy Minister of Marine, Ottawa, asking information as to the position in which the 14 spar buoys and 4 platform buoys in the Kingston harbour are placed. This information is required for the purpose of calling for tenders for this service for the next three years, and an early report was solicited. The minister also wished Mr. McCammon's opinion as to whether it would be advisable to place a buoy on middle ground between the head of Howe Island and Oak Point, also as to whether the anchors for the platform buoys are heavy enough and as whether it would be advisable to lengthen the anchor chains. This information was asked, at the request of James F. Allen, contractor for last year.
