Track Chart - 18 February 1927 Passenger List, SS Montrose, Canadian Pacific (CPOS)

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 sailing westward with the movement of the earth lengthens her time. Thus, it is necessary to set forward one's watch going eastward and set it back going westward.

Baggage and Customs
Canadian Pacific Railway Baggage Agents, also Canadian and United States Customs Officers, will be in attendance on arrival of the ship to arrange examination and checking of baggage through to rail destination. On arrival of the ship and immediately after Government Immigration inspection, and tickets to inland destinations have been obtained, Passengers must attend personally to the Customs examination of their baggage and arrange with the Railway Baggage Agents for its forwarding. The Baggage Agent will issue a check for each piece of baggage to be forwarded. Unless baggage is checked out by Passengers it will be held at owner's risk until claimed.

Special Delivery of Baggage
Passengers for Saint John, N.B., Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Victoria, and the larger cities in the • United States, may have their baggage checked through to any residence, hotel, steamship dock or railway depot in such cities; this is a convenience. The transfer charge is collected by the Baggage Agent at the time of checking the baggage.

Checking of Baggage
must have passengers' personal attention. It will not go beyond the dock until it has been checked or registered By Passengers.

The railway baggage agents will give numbered Checks to destination of Baggage.
Baggage left unchecked on the dock will be at passenger's risk.

Passengers are recommended to avail themselves of the services of our Colonization Agent who meets steamers. Consult him for information as to farm lands or opportunities in Canada.

Distances VISIBLE at Sea
At an elevation of 5 feet, one can see 2.6 nautical miles;
at 20 feet, 5.1 miles; at 35 feet, 6.8 miles; at 50 feet, 8.2
miles; at 75 feet 9.9 miles, and at 100 feet, 11.5 miles.

If the steam from a ship's whistle is seen and ten seconds elapse before the sound is heard, she is just 211. miles off. If one second elapses, she is distant slightly more than one-fifth of a mile; if five seconds, a little more than one mile; if twenty seconds, 41 miles.

Point the hour hand of the watch to the sun, and south is exactly half-way between the hour hand and the XII on the watch; e.g., assuming it is 9 o'clock, point the hour hand (indicating nine) to the sun, and the point half-way between X and XI is due south; or assume that it is 4 o'clock, point the hour hand to the sun and- the figures II indicate south.

Knots and Miles.
The statute mile is 5,280 feet.
The nautical mile is 6,082.66 feet. The number of feet in a nautical mile is arrived at thus : The circumference of the earth is divided into 360 degrees, each degree cottaining 60 nautical miles; or 21,600 (360 x 60) nautical miles to the earth's circumference; 21,600 divided into 131,385,456—the number of feet in the earth's circumference—gives 6,082.66 feet—the length of a nautical mile.

The " knot " is a rate of speed indicating one nautical mile per hciur.

6 feet-1 fathom. 10 cabl6s-1 nautical mile.

600 feet-1 cable. 1 nautical mile-1.15 statute miles.

The information on hand in these libraries is available without charge to those interested, and inquiries addressed to any office of the Department will receive prompt attention.
