p.4 Uncertified Engineers - R.C. Carter, of Deseronto, and others interviewed the minister of marine yesterday in reference to allowing small steam yachts under 30 tons to ply on minor waters without certificated engineers. They guarantee, however, to place their craft in charge of competent men, whose ability to navigate this class of vessels has been tested by the boiler inspector of the district.

Steam Yacht Engineers - Mr. R. Davis has returned from Ottawa. He was a member of the deputation that asked the minister of marine to amend the marine law so that a certain class of engineers could be employed to take charge of steam yachts. The minister said he would present their case to the house.
