Yes: therefore should only be used in urgent

cases.

Night signals should only be used in open waters.

Yes. But the danger would be partly obviated by forbidding complimentary sig. naling.

Think that private sig. nals of such a nature as to be mistaken for distress signals, should not be permit ted.

It should not offer an inducement to run into danger.

Rockets should be forbidden for private and other signals, and used exclusively for distress signals.

In any case night signaling should be restricted to urgent cases only.

Present distress or danger sig. nals ought to suffice if amplified in a simple manner, to show nature of circumstances in which vessel is placed.

on

Suggest a system of signaling
for steamers by means of
high and low notes
whistles, to be used in fog
or danger.

Present distress signals are

sufficient.

Suggest three additional warning signals for crowded waters by long and short blasts on the steam whistle or horn.

Recommend five signals in addition to those named in the order of reference, and suggest the use of fire-balls.

Recommend a simple system
of urgent danger and dis-
tress signals, to be made by
means of red, white, and
green globe lamps.

Such signals are desirable.

Desirous of a signal to indicate the course being steered by another vessel.

Some special warning night
signals seem desirable.

Suggests for revision of signal code that a voyage exceeding one hundred days and degree and minutes of longitude
should be reduced to one hoist. Geographical and spelling vocabularies require enlargement.
Suggest that further
consideration of this
subject should be de-
ferred until the Inter-
national Signals Con-
ference proposed by
the United States is
held.

Recommend a night signal to indicate which way a vessel is steering.

Yes, in certain cases. Say one distinctive signal denoting ice or other danger ahead.
