MARINE HOSPITAL REGULATIONS. - Provisions are made for sick seamen at the Marine Hospital and for the maintenance of these institutions each sailor while employed has deducted from his wages forty cents monthly. All seamen are entitled to these privileges who are sick or disabled without the slightest reference to the time, the place or the manner of their sickness or disability, whether in port or underway in the service of the ship or otherwise, from their own fault or from inevitable casualty. The time of a seaman in the hospital formerly extended to a period of four months, but latterly was reduced to three months. If a longer continuance is required an extra application must be made to the Secretary of the Treasury at Washington.
