GOVENOR* HEEDS PLEA
OFLOCAL SHIPPING MEM,
Order issued yesterday Modifying j
Port
ON EQUAL FOOTING WITH NORFOLK
Hereafter oteamers Stopping Here
For Bunker Coal Only Which Have
Been inspected at Old Point Will|
? Not be Subjected to State Inspec
tion.
Governor Claude A. Swanson yester
day issued an order modifying lie
Virginia State quarantine regulations]
governing the inspection of "bunker'
steamships ai tili? port so as to place
Newport News on an equal fuollngl
with the port of Norfolk. The order]
becomes effective Saturday, August I.
On and after that date, steamships j
coining to this port for hunker
only, and which have been Inspected]
by the United Slates quarantine of?
ficers at Old Point, will not he siio
Jected to inspection by the state quar?
antine officer here. However, a,.
steamship* that conn- here for fuel
coal dov not undergo an inspection at
Old Point and. of course, such vesaels
?rill be subjected to inspection by the
State quarantine officer here.
Expected to tietp Business.
Local coal agents express the Iv
lief that the modification of the quar?
antine laws obtaining at this port wi,i
result in a healthy increase of. the
"bunker coal business here. At pres?
ent Norfolk does considerably more
of this class of business than this]
port, but it is thought that Newport f
News soon will be doing a dl slm-ssj
equal to that of the city across
Roads.
Sometime ago the attention o. the
local coal agents was called to lue facti
that steamships entering Norftdk torj
bunker coal were not subjected to in?
spection by the State quarantine of?
ficer theaf, provided such vessels had)
been inspected at Old Point The
local agents took the matter op wlth|
Governor tswanson ami he set yester?
day as the date for the hearing of the
matter.
Attorney O. I>. llatehelor. of thi
city. who was retained to represent |
the local agents, presented the claims
of the agents at the bearing. Reprc-|
sentatives of practically all <af toe
coal companies shipping out of this
port and ..orfolk also were present.
5fr. B. H. Smith, agent lure for tin
George E. Warren Coal Company, was|
the only Newport News coal agent pre?
sent. I>r. William F. Cooper, the!
State quarantine omrer at this |iort.
and Trainmaster E. I. Ford, of the|
Chesapeake A Ohio Railway, also at?
tended tne hearing.
After hearing the situation explain?
ed. Governor Swanson announced |
that he would imm<d.at!y issue the
order placing this port on me same j
rating with Norfolk. A copy of the
order will he forwarded to Dr. Coopei
here today.
