Office of the Light House Engineer
Thirteenth District
Portland, Oregon, May 20th, 1874
By compunctions of the Board dated November 12th and 20th, 1873, the Officers of the 13th District were directed to examine and report as to the expediency of discontinuing the Light House at Yaquina Bay, assigning reasons in full for the conclusion to which they arrive. It is their opinion, which is respectfully submitted, that no necessity exists for continuance of said Light in the present condition of the commerce of the Bay, not even in anticipation of the Bay at the entrance to the Bay will forbid any attempt to cross it at night, and a light would therefore only be nicefs any to indicate that locality so that vessels may retain their position by it until day light appears. This can be more readily effected by the use of the Light at Cape Foulweather, only a few miles
