SUMMARY Total Passengers 108

Information for Passengers

If passengers consider that the charges made by the Surgeon for such services as he renders are improper or excessive, they are requested, before paying same, to take up the question with the Commander, and the bill will be either adjusted to a basis that will be satisfactory to the passenger or withdrawn. The purpose of the United States Lines is to make its service satisfactory to all passengers.

BAGGAGE. On disembarking, passengers are specially requested to claim their baggage before leaving the Customs shed, otherwise under present abnormal conditions considerable delay and extra charge for carriage will be incurred in forwarding to destination any baggage not accompanying passengers on the railway.

PASSENGERS are requested to ask for a receipt on the Company’s Form for any additional Passage Money, Chair Hire or Freight paid on board.

EXCHANGE OF MONEY. The Purser is prepared, for the convenience of passengers, to exchange a limited amount of money at rates which will be advised on application.

PASSENGERS’ ADDRESSES may be left at the Enquiry Office in order that any letters sent to the care of the Company may be forwarded.

VALUABLES. The United States Lines has provided a safe in the office of the Purser, in which passengers may deposit money, jewels or ornaments for safe keeping. The Company will not be liable to passengers for the loss of money, jewels or ornaments by theft or otherwise, not so deposited.

LETTERS, &c. FOR PASSENGERS will be brought on board before the passengers land.
Passengers should personally ascertain whether there is any mail for them before disembarking, and they are invited to leave their addresses at the Enquiry Office for later dispatches to be redirected.

Special Notice
Pursers of the United States Lines are ready to book your return passage. Sailing lists, rate sheets, cabin plans and other information will be cheerfully furnished upon application at the Purser’s Office. Tickets can be secured or deposits to secure reservations can be made. The Purser will procure by radio, without charge to the passenger, reservations or any information necessary.

Attention is invited to the other services now being operated by the United States Shipping Board. For passengers interested, the Pursers will cheerfully negotiate by wireless, without charge to the passengers, and arrange for bookings, etc., via any of the United States Shipping Board Services to all parts of the world.

Latitude and Longitude

Latitude means “ distance north or south of the equator,” and longitude means distance from the Meridian at Greenwich—near London. Both are recorded in degrees, minutes and seconds. At the Equator a minute of longitude is equal to a nautical mile, but as the meridians converge after leaving the equator, meeting at the Poles, the size of a degree becomes less. Sailing eastward a ship moves against the revolution of the earth; thus her course makes her gain time, while if she were sailing to the westward with the movement of the earth she would lengthen her time.

Thus it is necessary to set forward one’s watch going eastward and set it back going westward. There is five hours’ difference between the Meridian at Greenwich and New York. If a ship travels the distance in five days she gains an hour each day going eastward and loses an hour going westward.

As, however, comparatively few ships make such speed, on most liners the day’s length varies and the only good guide for setting watches is the ship’s clock, usually found at the head of the companion stairway in the entrance hall, which is set forward twice a day, at noon and at midnight, or set backward if she is westward bound.

Ocean Lines and Distances

Transatlantic steamships follow certain lanes or tracks, unless prevented from so doing by stress of weather, or work of rescue or relief, or other unforeseen circumstances. From August 24 to January 14 a vessel going eastward follows the short track, and from January 15 to August 23 the long. Going west the short track is followed from August 15 to January 14, and the long from January 15 to August 14. Following these lanes makes for safety and enables vessels better to meet the exigencies of weather conditions.

Some of the Atlantic distances are as follows :—

Ambrose Lightship to Bishop’s Rock—
Long track .. .. .. .. .. .. 2,966 miles
Short track .. .. .. .. .. .. 2,876 ,,
New York to Ambrose Lightship .. .. .. .. 22 ,,

United States Lines Freight Department

All of the steamers operated by the United States Lines are combination freight and passenger ships. They are modern in every respect and some are equipped for carriage of considerable cargo under refrigeration.

Our Docks are of recent construction and modern in all equipment, offering facilities for loading direct from cars into steamer, eliminating any hauling, lighterage or transfer by trucks. This is especially advantageous to Western Shippers, and movement of through cargo consignments in carload lots.

Special attention is given to shipments of household goods, automobiles, etc.
