RULES GOVERNING PILOTS. - When steamers are approaching each other "head and head" or nearly so, it shall be the duty of each steamer to pass to the right or on the port side of the other, and the pilot of either steamer may be the first in determining to pursue this course, and thereupon shall give as a signal of his intention one short and distinct blast on his steam whistle, which the pilot of the other steamer shall answer promptly by a similar blast of his steam whistle and thereupon such steamers shall pass on the right or on the port side of each other. But if the course of such steamers is so far to on the starboard of each other as not to be considered by the pilots as meeting "head and head" or nearly so, or if the vessels are approaching each other in such a manner that passing to the right as above directed is deemed unsafe by the pilot of either vessel, the pilot so first deciding shall immediately give two short and distinct blasts of his steam whistle which the pilot of the other steamer shall answer promptly by two similar blasts of his steam whistle, and they shall pass to the left or on the starboard side of each other.
