Torch Ij tbe wa ters adjacent to the K i penin sula ha- been secured by Thoina Coutchlln of Hancock, the local laspec tor of oustoig. and by him will BS nt wurd.d to the customs bureau of the treasury department. Instruction were received a few months ago from the customs department for the com pilation of such a llt. and Inquiries were ent out to ascertain th.- nam". Ue. location and owner of every bout in the district, practically every M er ..f a gasoline propelled craft of any ,., m -riptlon ha complied with the re (,ueMt for Information and the tabulat ed ll: prepared by Mr. Cnnblm shows a total of 170 boat owned In Houghton.

Ninety of these are In Portage Ijke and Keweenaw Bay. and seventy-five ,,t th. reahout are located at Houghton ni,, I Hancock, the number being pretty nearly Hi Mil between the two towns.

The report of the bouts on Torch l,ake was made independently of that se , ured t,y Mr. Ooughlin. but the. number there together with those In the list tni by Mr. f'oughlln brlnga tn total to about 170. It Is surmised that the object of the custom department in having the lilt compiled is to enable the depart ment to exercise a closer supervise over lwatii f thl class. In order that a more rigid enforcement of the ma rine regulation may be compelled. A large number of accidents occurred in various places throughout the country last summer to motor boats, resulting in many instances from Ignorance or: the part of flMSS operating the boat ..f gM marine rules, or carelessness in handling boats, and It is thought that the department will take such steps aa may tend to minimise such acci dents in the future EASTON STILL ON JOB.
