United States Consul F.S. Johnson is after owners of American vessels who do not register their papers with him when they come into port. The consular law distinctly states that American vessels landing here must report to the consul, but they have not been doing this. There is a vessel now in port whose captain has been notified that he must obey the law or he will be reported to the district attorney at Watertown, N.Y., and his boat will be put out of commission for the rest of the year.
