At the conclusion of the address of wireless telegrams the service word "Radio" must be added, for example:

All desired information regarding possibility of transmission, duration of transit and tariffs can be obtained on application to the Wireless Station on board, which is situated on the Sun-Deck of this steamer or from the Deutsche Betriebsgesellschaft fur drahtlose Telegraphie m. b.

Office of the Hamburg-Amerika Linie Passenger-Department

On the B.-Deck (Upper Promenade Deck) of the S. S. "President Lincoln"

an Office of the Passenger-Department has been established. This Office furnishes information to Passengers concerning the sailings of our steamers, the railway services from port of arrival into the interior, the Pleasure and Health Cruises arranged by the Hamburg-Amerika Linie and the various personally Conducted Tours managed by the Company's Tourist Office (Reisebureau der Hamburg-Amerika Linie)l It also provides information with regard to customhouse arrangements and other questions which are of importance to travellers.

At the Office, tickets are issued for the return-passage either from or to America, for the other regular services of the Hamburg-Amerika Linie and for Pleasure and Health Cruises, as well 4s for Conducted Tours on shore. The Office is the place where the letters and telegrams arriving on board for Passengers, are kept and delivered. The Office has also full control of all matters relating to change of staterooms, as well as charge of all unoccupied cabins.

Travellers' Checks Payable everywhere issued by the Hamburg-Amerika Linie.

The Most Desirable Means of Carrying Funds Abroad. Combining both Safety and Convenience.

We issue Travellers' Checks in denominations of .,14, 50, A 100 and A 200 in Germany and of $ 20, $ 50 and $ 100 in U. S. of America.

These Checks will not be accepted on board the steamers of the Hamburg-Amerika Linie for any purpose other than in payment of passage, or of bills incurred on board, Nor must the denomination of the check greatly exceed the amount of the billl The checks cannot, however, be cashed on board, as the Pursers and Chief Stewards on the steamers usually have only a small amount of ready money at their disposall
In order, however, to offer Passengers facilities for cashing such checks immediately upon arrival or departure of the steamers, we have established a portable bank on our piers at Hoboken.

This bank will be placed near the gangway upon arrival and departure of steamers. Hamburg-Amerika Linie Travellers' Checks as well as those of all other institutions for any amount, will be cashed without deduction.

Arrangements have also been made for a Foreign Money Exchange in this bank. All foreign moneys will be bought and sold at current rates of exchange.

Porter Service

Uniformed attendants to carry baggage to and from our docks and arrange small details of travel for a nominal fee.

For the convenience of ocean travelers by our line, and in order to eliminate the extortion that has been practised by some of the public porters, we have inaugurated a service of attendants to carry hand-baggage and perform similar services for our patrons. On days when our steamers arrive and sail, a staff of porters, wearing gray uniforms, upon the collars of which the word "Attendant" appears, and red caps bearing "Hamburg-American Line" bands, will be stationed at our docks, the ferries and railroad terminals in Hoboken, to assist Passengers.

A fixed nominal charge, as per schedule is made for the service between our piers and the following points:

Lackawanna Railroad or Ferries in Hoboken ... $ —.25 1 for one or two Hudson Terminal Station in Hoboken ... --.25 I packages

New York Hotels, above 50th Street. ... 1.50
New York Hotels, below 50th Street .

Pennsylvania Rl Rl, New York ... ... ... ... 1.--

The attendants will accompany Passengers to any part of New York to carry baggage, call carriages, and perform similar servicesl If a passenger will write or telegraph us, or telephone our office (1900 Rector) or our piers at Hoboken (770 Hoboken), one of the attendants will be sent to his home or hotell As the porters are conversant with all formalities on the piers, the usual confusion upon arrival and departure practically will be eliminated, thus relieving the passenger of all annoyance and worry and avoiding loss of time.

This service is especially valuable to large parties and ladies travelling alone, who can now make the journey to ours piers, without anxiety. Besides English, many of the attendants also speak German.
