p.3 Steamboat Engineers - We are informed that Mr. Taylor, Marine Inspector for this district, has "tied up" one or two steamers lately for infraction of the law in not carrying competent engineers. Steamboat owners who attempt this little game in order to save a dollar or two are likely to get into hot water. The safety of the travelling public demand that the law in this respect should be rigorously enforced, and that an example be made of delinquents. We might mention that the boats tied up were shortly afterwards released on compliance with the law. Mr. Taylor is keeping a sharp lookout for suspected craft, and is determined to deal out even-handed justice when occasion offers.
