OFFENSIVE CARGO BYE-LAWS.
The infringements against the Bye-laws in respect of the Carriage of Offensive
Cargoes continue to be committed from time to time, the principal offenders being the
craft employed by contractors in the removal of refuse matter from the Metropolis to the
Rubbish shoots in the lower reaches of the river.
In the year under review, many of these cases occurred daring the periods of
suspension of labour in the Port when it became difficult not only to remove the barges
but to get them properly covered.
