Mr. STEVENS:

On the Pacific Coast, as in other local waters, we have ferries making daily trips, and the captains of these boats are excellent and most expert navigators in local waters. They never use a pilot, but under present regulations they have to pay pilotage dues, and this Bill empowers the pilotage authorities to relieve these ships of dues. The masters of passenger boats are highly qualified men and are expert in the navigation of the waters in which they daily travel, so that my hon. friend need have no apprehension in that regard.

Topic:   PACIFIC COAST PILOTAGE.
