April 28, 1890 Monday  Larger Harbor is Needed  As year by year and traffic at this port increases the inadequacy of the harbor, becomes more and more apparent.  Today, all of the dock room is filled, and overf1owed. Four great ore docks stretch out into the lake to the utmost limit allowed by law.  The coal pier reaches nearly as far as will be constantly occupied and all ready there is complaint of loack *[lack] of room at the merch and ise docks. In fact only two steamers can unload package freight at once.    With all the great commerce of this port there is little protection for it.  It is notorious that in a gale vessels cannot safely load at the old MH and O dock, but must seek shelter under the breakwater.  The great No. 1 dock, the largest of the port is totally without protection.  Any further building of ore docks, and at the present date they will be needed before long, must be still further to the south
