CONDITION OF ICE
AT POINTS ON
THE GREAT LAKES.
Norman 15. Conger, inspector and
marine agent of the Weather bureau at
Detroit, passed through Manitowoc this
week. Speaking of the condition of ice
throughout the lake region.
“Reports from the several regular
and display stations of the Weather
bureau on the lakes indicate tnat the
ice has been broken up to a considerable
extent by high winds of the past week,
on all the lakes. On Lake Superior,
there appears but little ice over the
western end, and it is breaking up about
the islands. Cousideral.de ice is reported
off Keweenaw point and from White
fish point, westward as far as can be
seen from that pant. There in. been
no material change in the St. Mary s
river. The ice remains solid in Green
Bay, and but little ice is reported along
the west shore of Lake Michigan, while
on the emst shore the high easterly
winds of the past w> ek have moved the
large field out into the lake. The ice
remains firm at the Straits of Mackinaw
There is nut as much ice reported in
Lake Huron: the ice-bridge is formed at
the foot of the lake and extends north -
j ward about six miles. The ice is be
j ginning to run out of the extreme lower
(end of Labe St. Clair, and the Detroit
I river is ipen as far down as Sandwich
I point. The ice in Lake Erie appears to
; have been broken up by the high wind
and there is not as much reported along
I the shore as was the ease last week.
The Held has probably moved over to
the Canadian shore. There has been
no material change in the conditions on

GOVERNMENT TO MAIN
TAIN LIGHTS CN CHAN
NELS OF GREAT LAKES.
A lake captain said a day or two
ago “On# item in the Sundry Civil
Appropi iition bill, passed in the
closing days of the last congress, i* of
special interest to members of the Lake
Carriers' association, as it will relieve
them in part of the cost of maintaining
private lights. The bill gives the United
S'ates Light-House hoard s4.unit to be
applied to this purpose, but as all ap
pro] nation *. in the bill are for the year
beginning with July 1 next, the lake
vessel owners will be called upon to pay
tor the light* until that time. The
paragraph carrying thes4.nooapprupria
] tion is as follows:
'Maintenance of Lights on Channels
of (-rreat Lakes. To enable tl secre
tary of the treasury, under the supervi
sion of the Light-House board, by con
tract or otherwise, to maintain lights
necessary for the safe navigation of those
channels in the connecting waterways I
of the great lakes which have been con
structed or artificially improved by the |
government of the United States, where !
the same cannot properly be lighted

to MAKE TliiS A GREAT HARBOR. 1
Both Eighth and Tenth Street Bridges]
THE WORK WOULD NOT BE COSTLY
Could be Done b> the Outlay of 820,000.
or Possibly a Little Less. Would
Some of the vessel men, particularly
captains of the large lake steamers are
earnestly advocating the widening of
the Eighth street bridge -o that the larg
er steamers can pass through the slip
without any possible danger. They al
so suggest the same improvement for
tiie Tenth stree t bridge, and they say
that if Manitowoc sees fit to make these
improvements to the harbor, it will
have a tendency to bring the larger
grain carrying ship* into port.
“It would iie a good move," said a
lake captain, “if both bridges were wid
ened r.nywh re from twelve to eighteen
feet. While the Work may be expens
ive, entailing a possible cost of from
815,080 to $25,0011 yet the benefits ;ic
cruing to tire city through increased
shipping would more than recompense
for tiie outlay. It is the judgment of
all the sailing masters that these bridges
should lie widened, and with several
other improvements the harbor of Man
itowoc could not be rivaled anywhere.”
It was understood from the same
source that a petition would be circulat
ed among vessel men to be signed and
then presented to the city council ask
ing for the improvements herein sug
gested. The subject, however, has al
ready been called to the attention of
those administering city affairs.
