THE SUGGESTION OP A PHACTICAIILE
PLAN CAPT, SCOTT TO TIIK RESCUE.
Tho following Is the text of 11 tietltlon
being circulated by tho author, 01ms. M.
Scott, un old pilot and boatman, now in
this city. Mr. Soott claims In favor f the
petition that It Is bused on tho laws uf
niivlgutlon In cxlstcnco nil ovor tho civil
ized world, that require all navigators to
keepn log in which all dangerous obsta
cles and nil changes of channel nro accu
rately noted down, nnd whon tho navigator
nrrlves at any port, to glvo to tho proper
officer a transcript from his log, by which
means dangers aro Immediately mado
known to all Interested. Scott also claims
that tho navigation of our rivers Is of as
much importance as Iho navigation of the
ocean, nnd that all those Interested In river
navigation should be required, as by his
plan they would be, to furnish to each oth
er all tho information thoy may linvo or
obtain that will contribute to making tho
navigation of rivers less dangerous if not
safe. Tho petition is as follows:
To the Board of Untied States Supervising Inspec
Wo, you petitioners, steamboat owners,
captains, pilots nnd others, nil deeply in
terested In tho navigation of tho western
and southern rivers of tho United States,
would respectfully ask of your honorable
body to amend tho rules governing pilots
by nddlng tho ac:ompanliig rules.
Wu bcllove that the constnnt changes in
our western rivers require that vhoo
navigating thorn should be Informed of all
such changes as much as possible, aii'i, that,
If a rulo of this kind is adopted and rigid
ly enforced, it will do moro to sccuro life
and proporty than anything
elso that could bo done. A rulo
of this kind has nlrcady been
adopted by several niociatious, but it has
worked Injury to commerce by enabling
tho members to combine and extort from
owners exorbitant salaries, which exorbi
tant rates have a direct tendency to de
stroy comtnerco ; nnd tho llcenso system
serves only to protect their monopoly but
does not make better pilots. Wo believe
this rulo will remove all objectionably fea
tures in the law as farjas pilots aro concerned
and mako it as perfect ns human foresight
can make It :
