Cape Foulweather, sea-coast of Oregon.---An estimate was submitted last year for a sea-coast light at this point. A reservation of the necessary land has been made. This being one of the outlying points on the Pacific coast upon which a first-class light must be placed, sooner or later, and in consideration of the commerce of that coast, the estimate is renewed this year.
408. Cape Foulweather, sea-coast of Oregon.---For the erection of a first-class sea-coast Light at or near this point there was appropriated at the last session of Congress $90,000. It is proposed to erect a brick tower eighty feet from the ground to the focal plane, giving the focal plane a height of about one hundred and fifty feet above sea level. The plans have been completed; work was commenced about September 1, and will be completed during the present fiscal year.
