At a meeting of the board last wc"k, it was proposed to take away the lighl the 1st of October, but on repi scntation of Lighthouse Inspec tor i. 'ledge that the matter should be referr "I to Washington through pro per channels in order that the light may be olllcially marked from charts and navigators notified, it was decid ed to suspend action till November 1.
