Extract from Official Reports on Martin's Patent Lamps by Captain Wilson, principal Officer of the Board of Trade.
"WHITEHALL. "It must be admitted that by a very simple and inexpensive contrivance, the " Patentee has accomplished what he claims for it, viz. :-
“It cannot be blown out by the wind or put out by water, and is so con"structed that the lenses will always keep cool.
(Signed) CHARLES P. WILSON, " 3rd February, 1885."
"These Lamps appear to be exceptionally well suited for large or small craft ** such as C Jasters aud Fishing Vessels that usually carry their lights near the "water, as they are not liable to be blown or jerked out by the quick motion of "such craft, neither would the lenses be damaged, or the light affected by sprays "'or seas going over them.
“(Signed) CHARLES P. WILSON, " 19th June, 1885.
“ Principal Officer. The only PRIZE MEDAL at the Inventions Exhibition for Lamps
was awarded this firm.

COMMERCIAL & INDUSTRIAL ASSOCIATION OF GHENT
CHENT, with its large factories, its important commercial houses, and its
population of 200,000 inhabitants, is, by its topographical advantages, one of the most favourable centres for the development of industry, commerce, and navigation, and offers immense facilities in the way of transport. Two large rivers, the Scheldt and the Lys, meet here, and, supplemented by several canals, form the waterways of the two Flanders (Hainault), and the North of France. The Belgian Government and several private Railway Companies have made Ghent the starting point of lines to all parts of the Continent. I! is one of the most direct routes from the sea to North France, South-West Germany, Alsace-Lorraine, Switzerland, and Italy.
The port is capable of accommodating vessels up to 2,500 tons burthen, and for a number of years several services of steamers have been plying twice a week between Ghent and various English and Dutch ports.
Spacious sheds and appliances of the most improved kind have been erected along the quays. Ships can discharge direct on the railway truck or cart, into entrepôt, on to quay, or under the sheds.
Movable cranes, lifts, and all appliances necessary for speed and economy are at the disposal of the trading public, as are also the Sheds and Bonding Warehouses. Dry Docks, 426 feet in length and 42 in breadth, are in course of construction, and will probably be finished at the end of the year.
The water in the old dock, the timber dock, and at the “ Avant Port” is on the same level. These docks are very spacious, and offer every facility and security for the manoeuvring of ships.
The Navigation, Pilotage, Police, Railways and Customs Offices are all on the dock, and the authorities make a duty of affording all possible advantages and facilities to the shipping trade in general. Old and well established commercial houses, ship brokers, and forwarding agents exist on the spot.
The only compulsory taxes for vessels are Dock dues, which are very moderate. No other tax or duty is imposed.
The use of the Sheds, Bonding Warehouses, and appliances for loading, unloading, or moving of goods is optional, and when same are employed the charges are very moderate.
The canal which joins the port to the sea is all along 183 feet broad at water-level, and offers every security over its short extent of 30 kilometres. It is open both night and day, and navigation thereon is entirely free.
All vessels up to 90 metres (295 feet) in length, and 11'50 metres (38 feet) beam, and not exceeding 5:40 metres (17) feet) draught, can enter the lock at the entrance of the canal, and come right up to Ghent throughout the whole year.
