p.2 Buoys Are Needed - Harry Richardson says the Kingston harbor is much safer for navigation at night than in the day time. At night the range lights will carry a vessel through all right. Mr. Richardson thinks buoys should be placed down. There is no guide for steamers coming in. Mr. Richardson says if Cataraqui bridge was moved to Belle's Island, Kingston would have one of the prettiest harbors in Canada.
