SAN PEDRO. On the. allegation
that the West Coast steamship line
has misrepresented to prospective
passengers the tonnage of tt.g vessels,
all of them lumber carriers, steps
have been taken by the city authori
ties tbdraft an ordinance making It a
misdemeanor for steamship compa
nies to mako false statements about
tho vessels they own and operate.
One of the specific charges against
the steamship line is that the tteam
er James S. Higgins was declared to
be a steamship of 2000 tons, when It
is registered at Lloyd's as of 530 tons.
It is charged that the Bteamshlp
Washington wsvs declared to be a ves
sel of 2000 tons, while, as a matter of
fact, it is of 382 tons register, accord
ing to Lloyd's.
It is expected that the schooner
