Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,
Executive Chamber,
Harrisburg, March 19, 1915.

To the Honorable, the House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Gentlemen: I return herewith, without my approval, House bill No. 255, entitled: “An act to amend section four of an act approved the eleventh day of May, one thousand eight hundred and eighty-nine, entitled ‘A further supplement to an act, entitled “An act to establish a board of wardens for the Port of Philadelphia, and for the regulation of pilots and pilotage, and for other purposes,’ approved March twenty-ninth, one thousand eight hundred and three, and for regulating rates of pilotage and number of pilots.”

The statutes of the United States forbid the States from enacting

any law authorizing the levying of pilot charges on licensed or en

rolled coastwise seagoing vessels. This bill is in violation of these

Statutes. -
For this reason the bill is not approved.
