OUR AQUATICS. [Newspaper Article] — The Record and Emerald Hill and Sandridge Advertiser — 12 September 1872

''■J, • .OUR AQUATICS. • .S.OJIEWH eke " towards Xmas time last year, a suggestion, was . offered in The Record for the institution of an even ing /eie on the Albert Park Lagoon, and we now revive the idea, believing that it might be made a most pleasur able evening as far as the general public are concerned, and profitable to the interests of . the Hill generally. We, refer to the . subject thus early because, for the affair to be a success, some considerable preliminary arrange ments would be necessary. "We con ceive that'by good management a/very effective pageant and a joyous jhour might be secured on our own lake, say about the New Year's Eve; each boat carrying a colored light or lights, and having its little party of pleasant water revellers; and of course anticipating that Mr. Van Wyck would place at the disposal of the Committee his Chinese Sampan for the Emerald Hill Band, who are always willing to give their aid in any popu lar movement.

: EMERALD HILL: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1872. A MARINE BOARD. •We have for some years pointed out the unsatisfactory character of the tri bunal to which all inquiries relative to marine matters are referred—we mean the . Steam Navigation Board ;y we would wish it to be distinctly under stood that we do not in anywise wish to impugn the integrity or honor of any of the members of that Board, but we take it that as it is, as it were, or should be a, jury of experts — its constituents should include repre sentatives ..of . every, class engaged in marine affairs, and thus every interest would be represented fairly. "\Yeseethat Mr.WHiTEMAN,M.L.A., has taken the initiative, by asking a question of the • Government as to whether it is their intention to bring in a bill for the above purpose during tHe present session ? We can hardly expect at this late end of the session that any action can be taken in the matter this side of the recess, but a little agitation just at the present time woul...
