W. Knox. The new appropriation will insure completion of arrested topographic and hydrographic surveys of the eight Channel Islands, from San Clemente north to San Miguel; continuance of the offshore surveys by the steamers Pioneer and Guide; and early publication of a complete new set of navigation charts of the California coast. The survey of San Clemente Island, the first since 1870, will require three months… A similar survey group under Lieutenant C. K. Greene, is at work on the four islands of the northern group: Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa and San Miguel…”
