Cleveland Matters - Capt. C.M. Davis of the steamer R.P. FLOWER reports to the Cleveland Vessel Owners' Association that after leaving Gladstone on the 4th inst. with grain and while going out of the bay, his vessel struck bottom a quarter of a mile south of Corona buoy. There was a big sea from the southwest at the time. He thinks that owing to the shoal water in the bay the buoy should be moved at least a quarter of a mile south of its present location The FLOWER's shoe was bent and she was obliged to tow down, entailing a loss of about $2,500.
