Passengers, who desire to be reimbursed for the U. S. Head Tax,.are politely requested to indicate on arrival at the debarkation port and also on the declaration form they have to fill in when booking passage that is not within their intention to prolong their sojourn in the U. S. over the 6o days.


This Steamer is fitted with Marconi's Wireless Telegraphy system and Submarine Signaling Apparatus.

The following rates only include the forwarding charges within the coast station, which are additional. Every word in the address, text, and signature is counted. All invoices must be prepaid, and a receipt should be requested.


This vessel is fitted with special long-range wireless apparatus, enabling passengers to communicate with friends or business connections on shore throughout the voyage across the North Atlantic Ocean.

The wireless rate for messages directed through the long-distance wireless stations at Devizes, England, is 10d. Per word, directed through Chatham, Mass, or Louisburg, N. S., is 9d per word. The ship is constantly in touch with one or other of these stations.

Ship to Ship. — The general rate for messages exchanged between British ships is 8d per word. The general rate for messages exchanged with ships of other nationalities is 8 £ d. per word, but as Dutch, Belgian, and certain other vessels apply a Wireless ship charge with a minimum of io words, the cost for messages addressed to the ship will be calculated as follows:

  • For less than ten words, 3/6 plus a charge of 4d. Per word.
  • For ten words or more, 8 1/2 d. per word.


Ocean Letters. — The Marconi Company has inaugurated an " Ocean Letter " service by which messages may be sent from one ship to another going in an opposite direction for delivery by Registered Post from the first port of call of the latter vessel. For an "Ocean Letter" sent to a British ship controlled by the Marconi Company, the rate is (inclusive of wireless, postage, and registration) 5 s for 20 words, plus 2 d for each additional word up to a maximum of 100 words. For an "Ocean Letter" sent to a foreign ship, the rate is 5/6 for the first 20 words, plus 2 £ d. for each additional word, up to a maximum of 100 words. This class of message must contain a full postal address.

Poste Radio Telegrams.—These messages are accepted for transmission to a selected vessel for mailing on arrival in port. This Service provides a most economical channel of communication with friends and relatives on shore when full-rate facilities are not desired.

Poste Radio Telegrams should preferably be handed in during the early part of the voyage. They should be addressed similarly to the following example:

Poste-New York Brown 2464 Quincy Avenue
Arriving Tuesday Well

The inclusive cost of the above message would be 2/10 1/2

For particulars regarding Wireless communications established or expected, please consult the Wireless notice board, where complete information is posted daily throughout the voyage.
