The Cecelia Hill Matter. Capt. L. L. Hill states that nothing has as yet been done toward appealing from the decision of the local inspectors, regarding the revoking of the Cecelia Hill's passenger license. He was advised by these gentlemen to appeal the case to the supervising inspectors if he was not satisfied that the local men were sound in their judgment. These gentlemen also informed him that if he would remove the present upperworks on his boat and put her in the same condition that she was prior to these additions they would return him her passenger license. Capt. Hill is of the opinion that the boat is much better in her present condition than before the upperworks were put on. He also realizes that an appeal would result in nothing to his advantage, and that the only course for him to pursue is to appoint a committee of qualified men who are entirely disinterested in the outcome, have them examine the craft and make sworn affidavit as to her condition and their unbiased opinion relative to her seaworthiness, and submit this evidence to the supervising inspectors together with an appeal from the finding of the local inspectors. He will undoubtedly adopt this procedure, but at present the boat has all she can do carrying freight, the season being at its height for this class of trade. The passenger season has passed, so that the loss on this account is at the minimum.
