MATTER OF

EXTRACT FROM BRIEF OF SOUTHERN TRANSPORTATION COMPANY IN

PILOTAGE CHARGES.

The South Atlantic barge traffic is yet in its infaney, having begun in Jannary, 1915. In the short period of 10 months from January, 1915, to October, 1915, 15 barges made 55 trips. They carried south about 21,000 tons of coal; 1.000 tons of cement, 1,600 tons of plaster, 7,800 tons of gravel; 1,000 tons of fertilizer material, and 1,600 tons of steel rails--a total tonnage of over 37,000 tons, The same barges returned north with about 12,000,000 feet of lumber, 10.000 tons of acid phosphate, and 8.000 tons of piling-a total tonnage of 42.000 tons. While these figures are small as transportation figures go, they are a sure indication of the enormous tonnage which may be expected when the inland waterways are protected from these arbitrary and unnecessary charges upon the vessels using them. These 15 barges on their 55 trips bad to pay for compulsory State pilotage, which they never received, approximately $3,600. This amount would have been much larger had the inland waterways permitted the barges to load to an 11-foot draft instead of a 9-foot draft, to which the depth of water now limits them; and of course the burden of compulsory State pilotage will be much heavier as soon as the work of deepening the inland waterways, now in progress, is accomplished.
