The new shipping laws which abolish the collection of certain fees from the masters and owners of vessels will prove of much interest to all concerned. It does away with the fees for measurement of tonnage, issuing of licenses or certificates with other preliminaries that are well out of the way. . .

Collector Seeberger of Chicago has succeeded in bringing about a change in regulations pertaining to Canadian vessels which will be appreciated by Canadian masters. He has secured the consent of Commissioner Patton to permit Canadians to report at Port Huron for permission to enter Lake Michigan, instead of Cheboygan. Vessels coming from Lake Superior will have to report at Cheboygan as in the past. For vessels arriving from the lower lakes, however, Port Huron is a better and safer port to enter than Cheboygan, and the stop there will not involve so much loss of time as at the latter place.
