Favor More Control.
Commissioners Wakefield and Mc
Ctrthy expressed views decidedly m
favor of the harbor commission's con
trol of the private wharves.
"We already regulate the charges at
the public wharves, and to a certain
extent those at certain private
wharves," said Mr. Wakefield. "This
is in line with our regular duty, and
if a public utilities commission is
formed, it will not and in natural rea
son should not take this responsibility
from the harbor commission.
"As we are in close touch; with
these matters we would be better
able, because of our acquaintance
with conditions, to attend to all
wharfage regulations. I am certain
respecting charges, fees arid compen
sation for the storage of, and the du
ties and powers of carriers, shippers
and consignees in and to any such
freight, goods, wares and merchandise
in and upon any landing, dock or
public wharf within the Territory is
not, in my opinion, broad enough to
include privately-owned "wharves."
