LIGHT HOISE IMPROVEMENTS.
Major T. J. Handbury, U. S. engineer,
who has charge of all matters pertaining
to the construction or repair of light
houses in this district, says the Orego
nlan, has prepared plans for a screen or
shutter to protect the lantern at the
Tillamook lighthouse from damage from
the spray, which during fierce storms
sometimes break the glass.
The lantern is surrounded by a balcony
and railing, and it is proposedto place on
this a screen or shutter about fourteen
feet wide, made of galvanized iron, two
inches wide bv five-eiehths of an inch in
thickness, in the form of a lattice, the
openings m wuicu win uu bijl iutui-9
squaro, extending to the top of the lantern.
This shutter will stand on wheels, so
that it can in a moment be shoved around
to the back of the lantern in fine weather,
where it will be out of the way, and
when the storm king gets on his ear and
the scattered waters rave and the winds
their vigils keep, it can thed around
to the point where it will do the most
good in breaking the force of the water
which dashes against the lantern, and
thus protect the costly lenses from dam
age. The shutter will weigh about a ton
and a half. It will doubtless prove very
efficient. Iron workers have been in
vited to bid for its construction.
The castings for the proposed light-
nouse at uape iuearcs are oeing maae at
the Willamette Iron Works as fast as
