p.5 Aids To Navigation - Dominion Marine Association committee on aids to navigation has decided to request that the gas buoy near Lachine wharf, removed last season, should be replaced; that the Murray canal be lighted; that the entrance to the Murray canal at Brighton be improved; that a general system be adopted which will distinguish the top of port and starboard buoys, even at substantial distances and in doubtful light; that the Niagara shoal gas and bell buoy be replaced; that men be provided to take lines at the entrances to all the St. Lawrence canals; and that day ranges be erected to lead down the centre of the Rapide du Plat near Morrisburg. The committee will press for the immediate construction of ranges at the outer entrance to Kingston harbor. It decided not to endorse the request for the dredging of the Wolfe Island canal.
