Full Text

Inspector C.O. Allibone of the ninth light-house district (headquarters at Chicago) displayed commendable promptness in the expeditious manner in which he discovered the shoal in Green bay upon which Capt. William Jamieson of the steamer MINNEAPOLIS reported that his vessel had struck on June 3. Commander Allibone has sent out a notice to the effect that a 30-foot red and black horizontal striped spar buoy was established on July 8 at this spot, which will henceforth be known as MINNEAPOLIS shoal. The buoy is in 17 ½ feet of water and marks the center of a rocky shoal (17 ½ feet least depth). Vessels, it is stated, should give this buoy a berth of at least 1/4 mile.
