HIGHER LIGHT NEEDED
On New Dome Of The City Buildings.
Mariners say the light on the city buildings dome is not high enough to be of the use it is intended to be. As the Dominion government pays the city $364 a year for the use of the city dome light as an aid to navigation they say the light, now that the chance affords, should be made as high as possible so that it can be seen down the river as well as from up the harbor. The government grant could well be expended in having the new belfry edged with electric globes. Lights that high would be seen at a long distance and the money grant would be expended for the purpose for which it was given by the government.
