similar to that of a Morse lamp.
— 6 —
 The following are suggested orders for the guidance of
Masters and Officers when carrying out boat drill.
1. The boat's crew fall in, standing in single line with
life jackets on, facing the boat, the coxswain being abreast
of the stern post, the bowman at the stem, and the lowerers
opposite the falls.
2. Whilst in this position they are instructed in, and
questioned as to their knowledge of, the details of the boat,
its equipment and management, and of the disengaging gear,
if any, fitted to the boat.
3. "Clear Away" — At this order the coxswain takes
charge. Lowerers see that the falls are properly made fast
and clear for running.
The covers are removed.
The stroke oarsman ships the plug, the bowman
passes the painter out, the remainder of the crew let go the
gripes (outboard gripes first), see the falls, chocks and guys
clear, and the boat ready for swinging out.
The crew with the exception of the stroke oarsman
and bowman then return to their former positions.
4. "Swing Out"—At this order the boat is swung out as
quickly as possible, the guys (if any) are secured, the painter
is passed along to a suitable position and the rudder shipped.
The boat is then lowered to a position suitable for
the embarkation of passengers or crew.
Before the boat is lowered the operation of swinging
out should be conducted several times in order to improve
the crew's efficiency in this preliminary work.
5. "Still," "Carry On," "Lower Away" — The order
"Still" is given, when through some misunderstanding or
accident, or for the purpose of instruction it is necessary to
suspend operations. At this order each man stops what he is
doing and retains his position. If the order "Still" is given
whilst the boat is being lowered the lowerers immediately
take an extra turn with the falls or belay them. The order
"Carry On" means that operations should be resumed. At
the order "Lower Away" the boat is lowered. It is desirable
that each man in the boat's crew should act in his turn as
one of the two lowerers.
6. When the boat is near or in the water, the crew,
except those lowering, take their places in the boat, unhook
her when water-borne, ship the crutches, and toss the oars.
7. As soon as the last two lowerers embark, the bowman hauls in the painter, and the practice afloat commences.
8. Each .oarsman should be required to take turn in
steering and giving orders such as "Pull starboard," "Back
port," "In bow," etc., also in assisting to set the sail, float
the anchor, and bring the boat alongside.

There are 32 Points in the Compass.  The Way to learn
the Name of Each Point is as Follows:—
4 Cardinal or Principal Points—N., S., E., W.
4 Half-Cardinal or Quadrantal— N.E., N.W., S.E., S.W.
The above Principal Points have their Names printed on them. From these you get the Names of all the
other points.
8 Intermediate or Three-Letter Points:—They are
the Centre Points between each Cardinal and
and Half-Cardinal. Join the Name of the Cardinal to that of the Half-Cardinal and you have
the Intermediate Point. Thus the Intermediate
Point between N. and N.E. is N.N.E. Between
N.E. and E. is E.N.E. Similarly the others are
E.S.E., S.S.E., S.S.W., W.S.W., W.N.W., and N.N.W.
16 "By" Points:— They are the Points on either
side of a Cardinal or Half-Cardinal and take
their name "by" the next Cardinal. Thus Points
each side of N. are N. by E. and N. by W.; of
N.E. are N.E. by N. and N.E. by E.

 GENERAL NOTICE
Whether your new position requires you to work ashore
or afloat an instruction given to you by the supervising
officer in your department must be carried out.
Certain printed regulations are posted from time to time
on the company's bulletin boards and these instructions must
at all times be rigidly adhered to or carried out.
Work on board a vessel is entirely different to that
ashore. Discipline is essential on board ship and in order
to maintain proper discipline an order given by any ship's
officer must be obeyed.
The officer, or officers, in your own department will,
of course, assign you your regular duties.
Obedience to rules is essential for the safety of passengers
and employees and for the protection of property. To
enter or remain in the service is an assurance of your
willingness to obey all rules and you are expected to perform
all your duties in a faithful and courteous manner.
One of the conditions of employment for anyone joining
the service in any capacity on board a ship is that he
may be transferred or employed on any vessel where the
company requires his services.
USE OF INTOXICANTS
The  use  of  intoxicants   by  any  employee  while  on  or
off duty on board ship or on the company's premises will
be sufficient grounds for dismissal.
COURTESY
The Canadian Pacific officers and employees, throughout
the years, have established a reputation for courtesy as well
as for service obligingly rendered. "Courtesy and Service"
has always been the policy of this company, and I am sure
you will do everything possible to uphold this standard of
service.
As you probably know, we are again facing very keen
competition and in order to ensure our future success, which
is largely influenced by our ability to maintain the goodwill
of our patrons, it is necessary that all employees cultivate
courtesy.
2
 Many of our employees have direct contact with the
travelling public and it has been found that in many
instances an individual may judge an entire service by the
action of one of the company's employees. It is, therefore,
most necessary that you should be courteous at all times to
the travelling public.
You must always be courteous and attentive to your
supervising officers.
Your co-operation in maintaining and enhancing the
company's reputation for "Courtesy and Service" is most
desirable, and I feel confident you will do your part in
maintaining our high standard of service.
O. J. WILLIAMS,
Manager.
PROBATIONARY PERIOD
An employee entering our service is only on probation
and not considered a permanent member of the staff until
six months' service has been completed.
If you experience any difficulty in your work do not
hesitate to consult your supervising officer for any assistance
or advice he can give. We wish to help you in every way
possible, and if your initial employment indicates that you
are not adapted to work in that department you should speak
to the superintendent of the department ashore to see if
transfer to another department cannot be arranged.
If such a transfer takes place it must be definitely understood that your seniority in the new department only
commences from the date you start in the new department.
Your supervising officer will, after you have rendered
one month's service, submit an appraisal report concerning
your work and ability. It behooves you, therefore, to gain
as much knowledge as possible and to fully co-operate with
your  shipmates   and  supervisory   officers.
After you have been in our employ three months a
further progress report will be received from one of your
supervising officers, to be followed after five months with
a  final  report.   It  is  sincerely  hoped,  therefore,  the  final
3
 report  will  indicate  that  you  fit  well  into  our  branch  of
the company's service.
PERMANENT NUMBER
Please note for payroll, pension, and all other purposes
your permanent number is
and no matter what your ship or department in the company's service may be, that number will always apply.
If and when transferred it will be your duty to advise
your new supervising officer what your permanent number
is, and to see that it is correctly shown on the payroll, also
notify your new supervising officer whether or not you are
a contributor under the company's pension plan, so that in
the latter event the deductions on account of pension will
not be overlooked.
You will find attached a book of Rules and Regulations
governing the company's pension plan and you will observe
that after the completion of six months' actual service,
provided you are eligible, you are required to become a
pension contributor. If you are employed on a vessel
operating into United States territory, immediately upon
entering United States waters you will come under the
provisions of the U.S. Railroad Retirement Act and a small
deduction from your wages on that account will commence
from that date while so employed.
EMPLOYEES' PERSONAL MAIL
All employees are reminded that the company does not
accept responsibility for the delivery of mail addressed to its
employees sent care of this service, as neither the facilities
or the personnel are available to handle it. It is recommended that, whenever possible, employees arrange for their
personal mail to be addressed to their residence or other
outside shore  address where  they  may claim it.
No parcels addressed to the personnel of this service will
be accepted from the Post Office. Such parcels will *be
retained in the Post Office and a notification forwarded
through the usual mail channels to the employee concerned
who will require to collect the parcel at the Post Office
concerned at his or her convenience.
 POSTING OF NOTICES ON SHIPS'
BULLETIN BOARDS
It is permitted to post on crew's bulletin boards notices
of meetings of any labour organization certified to represent
our employees, but the wording of such notices must be
confined solely to giving time and place of meetings and
agenda. With this exception no other circulars of any
description in connection with any organization are allowed
to be posted on company's property.
TRAFFIC TIP CARDS
Under date of May 15th, 1947, the Chairman and
President issued  the following circular:
"A year ago your attention was directed to the necessity
for intensive participation by all officers and employees of
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company in traffic solicitation, and arrangements were made for the distribution of
'Traffic Tip' cards in premises throughout the system.
"During the past twelve months many of the company's
personnel have enthusiastically co-operated with our Traffic
Departments, and substantial additional revenue has resulted
from their efforts. Analysis of the origin of traffic 'tips'
indicates that some departments and areas have been particularly energetic in this form of co-operation, whereas
others, unfortunately, have responded to a very limited
extent.
"The nature of the commodity which the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company has for sale, namely, the movement of the nation's goods and its citizens, and the provision
of conveniences and comforts away from their homes, renders
it necessary and desirable that each officer and employee
constitute himself, or herself, a salesman to reach the widest
possible field. Only by the attraction of patronage to our
services may their quality be demonstrated and the continuation of new relationships sustained.
"In these days, when the shipping and travelling public
expect that normal transportation services have been restored,
after the stresses and pressures of war-borne requirements,
they will form lasting impressions of the company's facilities
5
 and personnel. Each of them who can be induced to place
his business with us will, in all probability, become a friendly
advocate of our world-wide services.
"To the extent and strength of such friendships and patronage the company's prosperity and, in turn, that of each
one of us, may be measured. We are all dependent for our
livelihood upon traffic, and every effort should be made to
solicit new patrons while at the same time continuing to
serve in an even more satisfactory manner customers of long
standing.
"To that end, recognizing the tremendous sales force which
is represented by the tens of thousands of Canadian Pacific
people, the 'Traffic Tip' system was devised. It is of proven
worth and you are urged to use it.
"Officers of the departments to which 'Traffic Tips' are
addressed will acknowlege your advice promptly and the
result of the solicitation will be conveyed to you and to the
head of your department."
Successful operation of the company depends on the business it enjoys and it is within the power of each of us to
stimulate and encourage both freight and passenger traffic
over the Canadian Pacific Railway. A tip in the right direction more often than not results in increased traffic and in any
event provides the company with an opportunity to contact
a prospective patron. Traffic tip cards are readily available
for use. If you hear of anyone wishing to travel or ship freight
please obtain a traffic tip card from your supervising officer
who will submit it to the proper department.
EMPLOYEE'S  FILING  ADDRESS  AND  TELEPHONE
NUMBER  ON   BEING  LAID  OFF
If you are laid off on account of seniority or reduction
of staff, to ensure re-employment when a vacancy occurs you

with seniority to position of stevedore, lookoutman or dayman. To be promoted to the position of lookoutman a seaman
must pass the necessary government eye test.
Further promotion fn accordance with seniority is possible
to position of leading dayman, night watchman, winchman
or quartermaster, provided employee is suitable.
An increase in wages is made when promoted from seaman
to position of lookoutman or other positions mentioned and
a further increase to positions of leading dayman, quartermaster, etc.
An employee in the Deck Department, if he has done
actual sea service and has the ability and education to do so
may secure a mate's certificate which qualifies him to fill
third and second officers' positions if his services are required
in that capacity. To be promoted to position of third officer
the applicant must be under thirty years of age, smart in appearance, nice personality and able to fully adapt himself to
work on board our ships. If the applicant is successful and is
promoted to position of third officer and subsequently to
second officer he can upon completion of certain stipulated
sea service as third and second officer take the necessary examination as provided by the Canadian Government regulations to secure a master's certificate. If in possession of such
a certificate promotion is then possible to position of first
officer and eventually to rank of master.
In the Deck Department it should be noted that one
out of every five engaged as seaman has the opportunity,
providing he has the necessary qualifications and ability, to
be promoted to position of third officer.
7
 Engineroom Department—If engaged as a wiper, provided
an employee has the necessary ability and is suitable, can be
promoted when a vacancy occurs in accordance with seniority
to the position of fireman. Further promotion is possible to
the position of oiler, engineroom storekeeper or water tender,
such promotions giving higher remuneration. If, however, an
employee has served a full apprenticeship in a machine shop
and is in possession of a fourth class engineer's certificate
issued by the Dominion Government, provided he has the
ability and is entirely suitable, he can receive promotion
when vacancy occurs to position of junior engineer.
Junior engineers after serving a required length of time
are then eligible under Government regulations to take
examination for a second class engineer's certificate, the
possession of which qualifies them for positions for fourth
and third engineers. After serving a stipulated length of time
as fourth and third engineer employees are then eligible to
take examination for a first class engineer's certificate. When
in possession of such a certificate employees are qualified for
employment in chief and second engineer's positions.
Employees in this department are taken on as cashiers
and become promoted to assistant purser as vacancies occur.
Promotion to purser subject to fitness for the position is
made as opportunity and seniority permit.
Stewards' Department—If engaged as a porter promotion
is possible to position of messboy and then to waiter. It is
necessary for a porter to be able to serve tables and make
up beds before being promoted to position of messboy. To be
promoted to position of waiter it is extremely important
that the employee be able to serve meals in a very efficient
manner and also to make up beds strictly to the company's
requirements. Provided the employee has the ability and
merit seniority shall prevail in making such promotions.
if an employee fully adapts himself to the work and
provided he is of smart appearance and pleasing personality he is then given the opportunity when a vacancy occurs
for promotion to position of second steward. Finally, promotion is possible to chief steward. >
ILLNESS
If you become ill you must report immediately to your
supervising officer who will arrange for your treatment at
8
 once by the stewardess, who is a qualified first aid attendant.
If a doctor is needed your supervising officer will see you
obtain medical care at the first port of call by the proper
medical authority. He will also see that the office in Victoria
is   notified  of  your  illness.
If your illness necessitates your remaining off the ship,
then as soon as you are able you must contact your department by telephone, if possible, or by letter, to permit arrangements to be made to place you back on board your vessel
without delay. As it is necessary to give the employee relieving
you forty-eight hours' notice, failure on your part to give
advance notice of your return to duty will result in the loss
of more time without pay.
If you take ill on a ship operating under foreign articles
(vessels which are operating or have been operating in United
States or Alaskan waters at any time during the calendar
year) you must receive medical treatment through a port
physician under the Sick Mariners' Act. The list showing
the names of the port physicians is attached to the back of
this booklet.
If reporting to a port physician, before leaving the vessel
it will be necessary for you to obtain from your purser the
proper hospitalization form. This form is prepared in duplicate and you must take both copies to the Customs Office
in the port where treatment is necessary. One copy, after
being stamped by the Customs, is handed back to you to be
taken to the doctor at the time you report for treatment.
You should note that under the Sick Marines' Act, if
you require medical treatment on account of illness, you
may be transported by ambulance only under the following
circumstances:
An ambulance may be called only in the case of a real
emergency involving an acutely ill employee requiring immediate transportation to hospital.
In Victoria, when an ambulance is required, the Victoria
Ambulance Service, telephone Beacon 4600, must be summoned. In Vancouver, the Exclusive Ambulance Service must
be   called,   telephone   number   FA-0080.   The  head  of   the
9
 department should contact the purser, or his assistant, who
will order the taxi or ambulance, whichever is required.
A taxi may be called only when an employee requiring
medical treatment is unable to proceed unassisted. The cost
will   be  borne  by   the   company.
If medical attention is required in Seattle or Alaska you
must be attended by the doctor shown in the list attached
to the back of this booklet. For medical attention required
in Seattle or the Alaskan ports the doctor will render his bill
direct to the company. If hospitalization is necessary the
doctors at these ports will arrange it.
If an employee receives medical treatment for illness on
a vessel that is not operating under foreign articles and is not
a member of the Canadian Pacific Railway Employees'
Medical Association of British Columbia, the employee will
be responsible  for  the entire  cost.
In the case of illness of an employee on a vessel not operating foreign who is a member of the C.P.R. Employees'
Medical Association of British Columbia he must report to
one of the Medical Association doctors listed on the back
cover of this booklet.
In the case of serious illness requiring your transport by
taxi or ambulance, if you are a member of the C.P.R. Employees' Medical Association of B.C., the following are the
authorized  ambulance   services:
Victoria—Victoria Ambulance Service, 1123 Vancouver Street,
Telephone Beacon 4600.
Vancouver—Exclusive   Ambulance   Service,   710   West   13th
Avenue,   Telephone  FA-0080.
If a taxi can be used instead of an ambulance then this
should be done in all cases. Under no circumstances must a
taxi or ambulance be called unless absolutely necessary.
The bill should be sent to the Manager's Office of our
service for payment. If you pay the bill then your receipt
should  be  sent   along  here. i
PERSONAL ACCIDENTS
Your attention is specially directed to page 13 of this
booklet  where  B.C.  Workmen's  Compensation   Poster  A.P.
10
 4208 dealing with the proper reporting of accidents, etc., is
set forth. You will note that all injuries, no matter how slight,
must be promptly treated by the first aid attendant. The
stewardess on your vessel is a fully qualified first aid attendant and you must promptly report to her for treatment.
You will note it is also your responsibility to promptly
notify your employer, in this case your immediate supervising officer, of any accident so that the proper forms can
be immediately prepared.
For your information Section 7, Subsection 2, of the Workmen's Compensation Act reads as under:
"If the injury does not disable the workman longer than
the period of three days, exclusive of any holiday upon which
the workman would not in the usual course of his employment have worked, from earning full wages at the work at
which he was employed, no compensation, other than medical
aid, shall be payable under this Part. If the injury disables
the workman longer than the period of three days, no compensation, other than medical aid shall be payable for the
first three days of disability reckoned exclusively of any such
holiday. Provided that where the disability is of more than
six days' duration compensation shall be payable from the
time  of  disability."
Another point to bear in mind is that you receive compensation on the basis of 66 2/3% of your wages.
If injured on a vessel not operating foreign (this being
a vessel that is not or has not operated in U.S. or Alaskan
waters at any time during the calendar year) and medical
attention is necessary, you must report to one of the C.P.R.
Medical Association doctors listed at the back of this book.
If injured on a vessel not under foreign articles and an
ambulance is required the following are the authorized
ambulance services:
Victoria—Victoria Ambulance Service, 1123 Vancouver Street,
Telephone Beacon 4600.
Vancouver—Exclusive   Ambulance   Service,   710   West   13th
Avenue,   Telephone   FA-0080.
Under no circumstances must an ambulance be called
when a taxi will do.
11
 The bill should be sent to Manager's Office of our
service for payment. If you pay the bill then the receipt
should be sent along here.
A taxi must not be used unless absolutely necessary,
otherwise you will be required to pay the bill yourself.
If the accident occurs in Seattle or an Alaskan port the
doctor to whom you report is shown on list contained in
envelope  attached  to  back  of  the book.
If injured when employed on a vessel operating under
foreign articles you must report to a port physician under
the Sick Mariners' Act. The names of the doctors are listed
in the back of this booklet.
Before reporting to a port physician you must obtain the
proper hospitalization form, in duplicate, from your purser.
Both copies are to be taken to the Customs Office at the port
in which you receive treatment. The Customs will retain one
copy and hand you one duly stamped, which you must hand
to the port physician at the time treatment is received.
You should note that under the Sick Mariners' Act, if you
require medical treatment on account of illness, you may be
transported by ambulance only under the following circumstances:
An ambulance may be called only in the case of a real
emergency involving a severely injured employee requiring
immediate transportation to hospital.
A taxi may be called only when an employee requiring
medical treatment because of an injury, is unable to proceed
unassisted.  The cost will be borne by the company.
In Victoria, when an ambulance is required, the Victoria
Ambulance Service, telephone Beacon 4600, must be summoned. In Vancouver, the Exclusive Ambulance Service,
telephone number FA-0080, must be called. The head of the
department should contact the purser, or his assistant, who
will order the taxi or ambulance, whichever is required.
General Remarks »
At Victoria, Vancouver, or Nanaimo, in the case of all
injuries which necessitate your receiving medical treatment
you must call the company's office (except in the case of a
12
 serious injury which will not permit this procedure), so that
arrangements can be made for you to receive immediate
medical  attention.
Your supervising officer will escort you to the office so
that full particulars of your accident can be obtained. In the
event that you leave the vessel in Victoria, Vancouver or
Nanaimo after office hours, or during the weekend when
the office is closed, you must personally report to the office
on the first day on which the office is open (except where
the injury is of serious nature and will not permit of this
arrangement). It is important that you keep in constant
touch with the office in Victoria, Vancouver, or Nanaimo, as
the case may be. If you cannot personally report to one of
the offices mentioned because of serious accident you must
telephone the office concerned.
C.P.R.   EMPLOYEES'   MEDICAL   ASSOCIATION   OF  B.C.
Effective August 1st, 1947, all new employees, together
with prior entry employees who elect to belong, become
members of this association. Medical dues by means of payroll deductions are made on the following basis:
Single members (no dependents) $4.00 per month
Married members and single members with
dependents $6.00 per month
If you have dependents and wish to have them included
under the coverage of the association they are required to
be examined and accepted by one of the association doctors,
and for this purpose the completion of a dependency statement is necessary.
B.C. WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION   A.P. 4208
To Secure the Benefits of the Workmen's Compensation Act
You Are Required to Comply With and Observe the
Following:
Get First Aid Immediately.
Even  slight  injuries  require  prompt  First  Aid.   Do not
wait until blood poisoning develops.
When a First Aid man is available, see him immediately.
 Failure to do so may jeopardize your claim for compensation.
If medical attention is necessary see a doctor without
delay and have him send his report to the board. Don't
change doctors without the consent of the board.
Notify Your Employer at Once.
The law requires a workman to notify his employer of the
accident as soon as practicable after it occurs. Give time,
place and particulars of accident, and nature of injury.
Unless there is sufficient reason for the omission, failure
to notify the employer as required is a bar to any claim
for compensation.
If off; work for more than three days submit your claim
to the board promptly. Your doctor is required to assist
you in completing your claim form without charge to
you.
Any act on your part which retards recovery jeopardizes
your claim.
Application forms for compensation may be had from
your employer, the Government Agent or your doctor.
Don't hesitate to notify your employer and the board of
any conditions which appear to you to be dangerous.
THE WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION  BOARD,
411 Dunsmuir, Vancouver, B.C.
September 30,  1942.
SAFETY SHOES
Safety shoes for the protection against foot injuries are
available to all employees from the Storekeeper at Victoria.
Samples, however, may be viewed at the Asst. Marine Superintendent's office in Vancouver. It is strongly urged that all
employees whose employment places them in positions where
such safety shoes may prevent injury should take advantage
of their availability. Prices are subject to changing market
conditions, with eleven styles available. Consult the head
of your department for further particulars. If you wish to
procure a pair your supervising officer will be glad to submit
the necessary requisition.
14
 USE   OF   PRESCRIBED   PROTECTIVE   CLOTHING,
GOGGLES,   AND   EQUIPMENT
FOR CERTAIN DUTIES
Your attention is specifically drawn to Canadian Pacific
Railway Safety Rule No. 1600:
Employees must use prescribed protective clothing, goggles,
and equipment when forging, grinding, chipping, reaming,
buffing, polishing, welding, burning, cutting, rivetting, rivet
heating, heating furnaces, scaling, caulking, breaking concrete, iron, scrap or other material, using punch, chisel bar,
cold set, compressed air for blowing, cleaning or sanding,
operating metal and woodworking machine, working under
car or engine, handling strong acid or alkili, molten metal,
and when engaged in other occupations as may be designated.
POSTING OF INSTRUCTIONS IN BOILER ROOMS
There are different types of oil burning systems on the
various vessels, each having different methods of control and
regulation, and manipulation of fires. A definite notice is
posted in the boiler room of each vessel containing instructions and warnings applicable.
SAFETY FIRST
This company requires that every employee shall perform
his work in a safe manner, and thereby prevent accidents
liable to cause injury to himself or his fellow employees. To
this end it is imperative that no unnecessary risks be taken.
Of course in an operation of the magnitude of this service,
there are always occasions when it is necessary to perform
certain duties which, unless every care and precaution is
taken, are liable to cause injury, but you will find in such
cases that the utmost precautions are followed.
Accidents Are Caused—They Don't "Just Happen"—and
98% of the accidents occurring throughout the B.C. Coast
Service are caused by human failures—failure to work carefully, to think of what was being done at the time of doing it.
Eliminate the causes and we will eliminate the accidents.
If we can secure the co-operation of all employees to think
15
 of what they are doing at the time of doing it, and to work
safely at all times, the major cause of all our accidents will
be stopped. However, if at any time you have a suggestion
which will rectify what may occur to you as an unsafe practice or working condition, pass the suggestion along immediately to your supervising officer. You will find that it will
be very welcome.
Remember, accidents are costly. Although you receive
compensation if injured, this is only a proportion of your
wages, and you therefore lose money, or worse still, may possibly be maimed for life. The company also loses because it is
liable for all medical and compensation costs, as well as the
possibility of losing your services. It is therefore, common
sense for the company and the employee to work together
to eliminate accidents.
EMBARKING OR DISEMBARKING FROM A VESSEL
You must not embark or disembark over a passenger
plank or freight plank until it is properly secured. The deck
officer on watch on the freight deck when the vessel is making
a landing will indicate where employees proceeding ashore
must stand until permission is given to disembark. The
position should be well clear of the freight deck doors, of
the seamen on duty and clear of the stewards with hand
baggage.
If you are boarding a vessel immediately after it has
arrived you must stand clear of the ship or elevator until
advised by the deck officer on watch on the freight deck
that you may proceed on to the ship.
You must not embark or disembark except by the proper
passenger or freight gangplank unless instructions are issued
by the master or one of the ship's officers.
HANDLING OF CARGO
It is extremely important that the best care possible be
given to the handling of cargo of any description. Over
$1,500,000 was paid out by the company for claims in 1949
because of careless handling and loss of cargo in all its operations. You can well realize that with ever increasing operating
costs this increased expenditure only adds to an already
heavy burden.
16
 No doubt the amount of claims paid in 1949 is startling
and I would also point out that in addition to the amount
paid out in claims certain traffic has been lost. If a consignee
receives a shipment in bad order many times it causes
considerable inconvenience as well as dissatisfaction. A dissatisfied customer may result in considerable loss of revenue
to our company in addition to the claim paid.
As mentioned on page 2 under "Courtesy" the Canadian
Pacific has established a reputation for good service. I feel
confident that you will do everything possible to maintain
this high standard of service. Good service to our patrons is
the best advertisement and consequently increases revenue,
thereby giving more employment in our company.
CREW NOT TO PASS THROUGH PASSENGER
ACCOMMODATION
No crew member is to pass through passenger accommodation unless there is no other way to get to that part of
the ship where his duty takes him. If he must pass through
passenger accommodation he must not loiter, but proceed in
an orderly manner as quickly as possible.
SMOKING ON BOARD SHIP
Employees are strictly prohibited from smoking when on
duty either at sea or in harbour and will refrain from using
public smoking rooms or ships' spaces. Smoking is only
allowed in the crew members' own quarters.
ENTERING PASSENGERS' STATEROOMS
It is against the company's regulations for any member
of the Stewards' Department to enter a passenger's stateroom
without first obtaining permission from the person occupying
the room. Anyone answering a bell must first knock on the
door and await a reply before entering the room. Under
no circumstances is a member of the Deck or Engineroom
Department  to  enter a passenger's stateroom.
SHIP'S ARTICLES
A new employee must report to the purser's office to sign
on the ship's articles. When terminating employment it is
also necessary for an employee to sign off the articles.
17
 PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT MONEY OR
OTHER VALUABLES
When proceeding on weekly leave you should take par
ticular care not to leave valuables, Union funds or any
monies in your locker. Before proceeding on leave the locker
key should be left with the head of your department to permit
locker to be examined in the event of a search by R.C.M.P.
officers for contraband goods, etc.
PROVISIONS  OF  THE   U.S.  RAILROAD  RETIREMENT
ACT AND THE U.S. RAILROAD UNEMPLOYMENT
INSURANCE  ACT
All ship employees who have earnings in United States'
waters come under the provisions of the U.S. Railroad Retirement Act and the U.S. Railroad Unemployment Insurance
Act. Sickness and unemployment benefits are available to
all eligible employees. An employee is eligible only if he
earned $150 or more in U.S. waters during the calendar year
(base year). In case of sickness if you qualify you should
make immediate application, otherwise your claim will not
be entertained. More complete information may be obtained
upon inquiry at the Manager's Office, Victoria, B.C.
CANADIAN  UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE ACT
All employees whose annual remuneration is under a
certain sum, including room and board allowance based on
$1.00 per working day for ships' personnel, but excluding
overtime, overtime bonus, and uniform allowance, are insurable under  the Canadian Unemployment Insurance.
Employees in international service are eligible for benefits
under the United States Railroad Unemployment Insurance
Act for the time spent in U.S. waters (provided earnings
during their base year was $150.00 or over), and only the
proportion of service rendered in Canadian territorial waters
is taxable under the Canadian Unemployment Insurance Act.
See your supervising officer for further particulars.
18
 EMPLOYEES' AUTOMOBILES INSIDE COMPANY PIERS
Under no circumstances are employees automobiles to be
permitted inside company piers.
UNIFORM AND DRESS REGULATIONS
Deck Department—Quartermaster on watch in the pilot
house and petty officers on plank watch must be properly
dressed in the company's uniform. As petty officers are
continually in contact with the public it is extremely important that they be smartly dressed and have their shoes
always polished.
Stewards' Department—As members of the Stewards' Department in the course of their duties are in very close
contact with the travelling public it is extremely important
that they be smartly dressed in the regulation uniform when
on duty.   Shoes must always be polished.
CANADIAN SEAMEN'S IDENTITY CERTIFICATES
All employees engaged on ships operating into territorial
waters of the United States, or Alaskan waters, must be in
possession of identity certificates.
Anyone applying for an identity certificate must be in
possession of three regulation size passport photographs at
the time he reports for the certificate. In Victoria these
photographs may be obtained at Gibson's Studio, 770 Fort
Street, at a nominal charge. In Vancouver, arrangements
for photographs are to be made through the Assistant Marine
Superintendent's office.
Employee must also be in possession of a letter from his
employer addressed to the Shipping Master, giving authority
for the issuance of this certificate.
CREW IDENTIFICATION CARDS
Crew identification cards are issued each year to all employees, and are to be carried by them at all times when on
company property. If you transfer from one ship to another
please call at either the Assistant Marine Superindent's office,
Vancouver, or the Manager's office, Victoria, at the first
opportunity, to have your crew identification card amended.
19
 CREW EXPENDITURES IN FOREIGN PORTS
Crew members must not take with them into the United
States or the territory of Alaska, more than $100.00 U.S.
funds or its equivalent in Canadian and foreign bank notes,
coin and traveller's cheques.
MONIES FOUND ON COMPANY PROPERTY
Any monies, purses or receptacles containing money found
on board any of our vessels must be immediately turned in
to the purser, who will issue a receipt for same to the finder.
If found ashore on company property, monies should be
turned in to the local agent, except in Victoria, where it is
the Baggage Master or a member of his staff.
DUMPING REFUSE OVERBOARD
The dumping overside of refuse from any vessel while
within the harbour limits of a port is strictly forbidden.
EMPLOYEES' SUGGESTION BUREAU
If you have an idea you think practical and valuable you
should put it in writing, explaining carefully and clearly how
it will work and what you believe it may accomplish. It
must be accompanied by your full name, occupation, location
and residence address, and be forwarded O.CS. or post office
mail to the Vice-President, Personnel (Employees' Suggestion
Bureau), Canadian Pacific Railway Company, Montreal. You
can be assured that your idea will be fully investigated
without disclosure of your identity, thereby ensuring completely unprejudiced consideration. Three cash prizes for
the best suggestions are distributed each month.
PASS PRIVILEGES
To acquaint you with the transportation privileges which,
of course, can be changed at any time the following should
be noted:

service
NOTE: These reduced rate orders are not issued for travel
during the period May 15th to July 15th eastward, and
21
 August 15th to September 30th westward.  The following
particulars are required:
Names of employee, wife and children.
Proposed date of travel.
Name of ship travelling on.
Class Desired
Advise if return or one way transportation required.
ANNUAL PASSES
Employees are entitled to annual passes (for themselves
and wives only if married) on the vessels of this service after
ten years' service (continuous, or eighty months' service
within ten years from last date of entry). Annual passes are
not applied for until the employee has the requisite service,
and has requested the pass in writing. Passes have the usual
restriction of not being good north of Comox, on the West
Coast route, or on excursions. Employees who have transferred to this service with time in other company departments
can count such company time towards that necessary for a
B.C. Coast Service annual pass.
GENERAL PASS  INSTRUCTIONS
Dependency forms (form 529), fully completed and signed,
must accompany every application for a dependent child 15
years of age or over, and for every other adult solely dependent (except a wife). At all times ages of dependents are to
be shown on pass requests.
Passes or other transportation orders for officers and employees employed in Victoria, or on ships operating regularly out of Victoria, will be available in the Manager's office
daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Mondays to Fridays. Outside of these hours, or on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays,
passes or transportation orders will be available in the Victoria Wharf Ticket Office.
In Vancouver passes and other transportation orders will
be available in the Assistant Marine Superintendent's office
during regular office hours. When that office is closed
passes or transportation orders will be available in the Vancouver Wharf Ticket Office.
Regulations do not permit the sending of telegrams for
transportation except in the case of severe illness or death in
22
 the family. Emergency O.CS. passes only will be issued on
Saturday or Sunday. An "emergency" means a case where
the necessity for the pass could not have been anticipated.
Widows, and dependents on estate of deceased employee,
if the late employee had the requisite service, are entitled to
passes on the B.C. Coast Service, and one rail line pass a
year. The one rail line pass per year is irrespective of distance travelled.
In every instance the officer or employee concerned must
personally make the application for all transportation required for members of his family, and no request made direct
by a dependent will be honoured. The request for all transportation must be made through your supervising officer.
When an employee loses a trip pass (or one is lost by a
dependent of his for whom it was issued) he must immediately report it to his superintendent ashore through his
supervising officer, and complete a form of undertaking.
When an annual pass is lost this also must be reported immediately; application for re-issuance of the pass is not made
until three months have elapsed from date of such reported
loss.
When form 1347 is used in making the request for passes
for several members of the family, one form only is to be
submitted, with the particulars itemized. If separate passes
are required a notation to so indicate must be shown.
Officers and employees requiring rail lines transportation,
obtainable through the Vice-President's office in Vancouver,
are not to present themselves at that office to request such
transportation or, if already requested, to pick it up. If desired, arrangements can be made for such transportation to
be picked up at the Depot Ticket Office, Vancouver, but the
request for such an arrangement must be made on the original
pass, request. Passes on the E. & N. Railway may be picked
up at the General Office of the railway in Victoria if the
request so states.
It is to be noted that qualified employees are only entitled to one "system" rail lines' pass per year or equivalent
mileage.
23
 REFUNDS
Refunds for transportation purchased (when an employee
has failed to allow sufficient time to obtain pass transportation through the mail in the regular way) for use on company lines are only considered in cases of extreme emergency,
such as severe illness or death in the family, and then only
for amounts of $5.00 or over; receipt for fare purchased must
accompany application for refund.
In connection with application for refunds of passenger
tickets on United States railroads, no refund will be entertained where the amount involved is less than $5.00 and then
only in cases of serious illness, death or unavoidable circumstances (when satisfactorily explained), or when the trip has
been made on company's service. Such requests for refund
will be charged to the individual's pass quota the same as if
a pass had been issued prior to travel. No refunds will be
granted if trains are used on which free or reduced rate
transportation would not be honoured. Details such as ticket
form and number, date ticket purchased, amount paid, route
of ticket, and numbers of all trains used must be given, and
the application accompanied by the receipt for the fare paid.
HANDLING OF BAGGAGE
Baggage should not be thrown or slid along the floor.
This is frequently the cause of broken handles and scarred
and torn covers.
Piling of baggage in dollies or on trucks should be carefully watched. Small pieces should not be piled in such a
way that they will be crushed or damaged between heavier
ones, or by friction when the dolly is in motion.
Many types of baggage in use at the present time, while
beautiful in design and appearance, are not as strong in

Medical Association of British Columbia
BY-LAWS
ARTICLE I.
The benefits to be received by members afflicted
before becoming full members of the Association with
chronic diseases or congenital conditions which may
require long or expensive medical or surgical treatment, shall be restricted to the treatment for injuries
from accidents arising out of and in the course of their
employment and in respect of which they are entitled
to compensation under the Workmen's Compensation
Act, the treatment to be such as is prescribed in Section
23 of that Act, provided that the dues payable by any
such member shall be those mentioned in Section 33
of the Workmen's Compensation Act, namely, one cent
per working day or part thereof. The family or dependent of any such member shall not be entitled to
any benefits unless special arrangement is made therefor with the Board, full dues in such cases to be paid.
ARTICLE II.
Contributions
(1) The monthly fee for membership shall be $1.75,
provided, however, that members earning less than
$50 per month or the equivalent thereof shall pay $1.25
per month. The Association will maintain a reserve
fund of $20,000.00, when possible.
(2) Members shall not be deemed to be in default in
payment of dues if these are unpaid while they are
 actually incapacitated,—subject to review by the Board,
—but must, on recovery, pay all back dues to the Association.
ARTICLE III.
(1) The benefits to be provided by the Association
shall, subject to the Constitution and By-Laws, be as
follows:
(a) Necessary hospital accommodation in the public ward (should other hospital accommodation be desired, patient to pay the difference) including dressings,
medicine, anaesthetics and operating room, for all sickness and operations covered by the benefits provided
by this Association. Accounts for treatment by other
than Association doctors will only be allowed at the
discretion of the Board, provided the approval of a
medical officer of the Association has been obtained,
and when approved by the Local Committee.
This shall not apply to contagious or infectious
diseases which are usually treated in isolation hospitals,
or to typhoid fever contracted within six months of
member joining the Association.
X-rays for the purpose of diagnosis and examination will only be given when this is considered necessary by the Medical Officer of the Association.
At points where reasonable rates cannot be obtained from hospitals the Association will pay the member direct a sum not to exceed $2.50 per day for every
day it was necessary for patient to be in hospital, when
certified by Association doctor and Local Committee,
in lieu of hospital accommodation.
(b) Hospital treatment will continue so long as,
in the opinion of the Association surgeon in charge of
the case, it is necessary, but will not exceed three
months unless approved by the Board on the recom-
9
 mendation of the Association surgeon in charge, except
in cases in which the Board considers there is reasonable hope of full recovery by continuing the treatment
for a longer period. Patients will be discharged from
the hospital when, in the opinion of the Association surgeon, they no longer require treatment there. Should
the patient thereafter insist on remaining in the hospital, it will be at his own expense.
(c) Ordinary medical and surgical treatment will
be given by the medical officers of the Association,
including anaesthetics and dressings. As long as the
funds will permit, the Association will pay to druggists
50% of the cost of drugs furnished to members and
dependents on prescriptions issued by the Medical Officers of the Association. In cases of workmen injured
on duty and coming under the provisions of the Workmen's Compensation Act, they will be supplied free of
charge with medicine prescribed by the Medical Officer.
(d) Free ambulance accommodation will be supplied to members only.
(e) A member or dependent taken ill while temporarily absent from that part of the Province of British Columbia covered by this Association, or when sent
out of the province by Association medical officers for
treatment, may, at the discretion of the Board, be
allowed such hospital treatment as would have been
paid had they been treated at a local hospital, on production of certificate from doctor in attendance as to
nature of sickness.
(f) Members who are required to leave the Province of British Columbia temporarily on Company's
service, will, at the discretion of the Board, be allowed
any medical and hospital treatment necessary at public ward rates as provided by Constitution, until sufficiently recovered to return to their homes.
10
 Note—Clause (f) refers to members whose duties
require them to work between a point in British Columbia and a point outside, and not to employees who may
be transferred from British Columbia to work at some
point in some other province, except as provided in
Workmen's Compensation Act.
(g) No specialists' services of any kind, or any
service in connection with dental work will be provided,
except in cases coming under the Workmen's Compensation Act.
(2) The benefits shall not include:
(a) Maternity cases. The Association will, however, in such cases make an allowance to the member,
or to the Association doctor in attendance of $12.50 on
assignment by the member, and any medical treatment
and medicine for such cases during pregnancy; but no
medical treatment, hospital or nursing will be allowed
for abortion, miscarriage or confinement. This allowance will only be paid in cases of members who have
paid dues for the nine months preceding confinement
and when doctor is present at such confinement, whose
certificate shall be produced as confirmation thereof.
The benefit will be allowed for posthumous children, providing the mother of the child is entitled to
the benefits of the Association at date of birth.
Note—A maternity case shall be considered as confinement case at the termination of six months of
pregnancy or after.
(b) Venereal and alcoholic diseases and cases of
insanity.
(3) If in emergency cases of sickness or injury a
surgeon (noiran Association Surgeon) is called in, no
bills of such surgeon will be paid by the Association,
except for the necessary first attention.
il
 (4) Medical and surgical treatment by the designated surgeons of the Association of any member or
person entitled to the benefits of the Association, will
be limited to three months except at the discretion of
the Association Surgeon, in cases where there is a
reasonable hope of full recovery by continued treatment
for a longer period. The Association will not be responsible for the care of cases which, after three months'
treatment, are practically demonstrated to be incurable.
(5) In cases of accidents to members entitling
them to compensation under the Workmen's Compensation Act, such members shall be afforded the medical
and other aid specified in Section 23 of the said Act,
as and when directed by the Workmen's Compensation
Board.
(6) The Association is not responsible for hospital
or other treatment for injuries received in accidents,
other than cases coming under the Workmen's Compensation Act, where outside parties are responsible
for s'uch accidents; but in the event of the injured party
being unable to recover such expenses, the Association
will allow the member such hospital and other treatment as provided in the Constitution.
ARTICLE IV.
Emergency Cases
(1) In cases of emergency, when it would not be
safe to await the arrival of the Association Surgeon,
a member may summon any available physician or
surgeon to render first attention to a member of the
Association. The nearest Association Surgeon should
be notified at the same time, so that he may take
charge of the case.
(2) Physicians or surgeons summoned in emergency cases shall not perform any operation until the
12
 arrival of the Association Surgeon, unless it is necessary for the safety of the patient.
(3) The Association will not be responsible for
bills for hospital care or for the services of physicians
or surgeons not in its employ, except where they have
been called for assistance in emergency cases, in which
case a reasonable allowance will be made for the first
attention only, unless further treatment has been authorized by an Association Surgeon.
(4) All bills for emergency services with full particulars shall be forwarded by the Local Committee to
the Secretary-Treasurer for approval by the Board.
ARTICLE V.

Members of the Association attending Board or
General Meetings will be compensated for all time lost

pay for each day or portion thereof they are occupied
on Board or travelling to or from same.

 MEMORANDUM FOR GUIDANCE OF MEMBERS
Benefits to Members
Ordinary medical and surgical treatment by Association Doctors.
When authorized by Association Doctors, necessary hospital accommodation in the public ward of
hospital with which Association has contract (should
other hospital accommodation be desired, patient to
pay difference) for a period not exceeding three months
for any one illness; including dressings, medicine,
anaesthetics and operating room, for all sickness and
operations covered by the benefits provided by the
Association.
Laboratory tests and X-rays for the purpose of
diagnosis will be provided when considered necessary
by an Association Doctor. (Dental X-rays and treatment excluded.)
Free ambulance accommodation, when necessary,
within the territory covered by the Association.
The Association will pay to druggists 50% of the
cost of ordinary drugs prescribed by the Association
Doctors when patient is not in hospital. In cases of
injuries coming under the Workmen's Compensation
Act members will be supplied free of charge with
medicine prescribed by an Association Doctor.
Benefits to Dependents
Free ambulance accommodation is not provided for
dependents; with this exception and the provision of
free drugs for injuries coming under the Workmen's
Compensation Act—which naturally does not apply to
18
 dependents, the benefits are the same for dependents
as for members.
Exceptions
Hospitalization is not provided for contagious or
infectious diseases which are usually treated in isolation hospitals, or for typhoid fever contracted within
six months of member joining the Association.
No specialists' services of any kind, or any service
in connection with dental work will be provided, except
in cases coming under the Workmen's Compensation
Act.
Maternity cases. The Association will, however,
in such cases make an allowance to the member, or to
the Association Doctor in attendance of $12.50 on
assignment by the member, and any medical treatment
and medicine for such cases during pregnancy; but no
medical treatment, hospital or nursing will be allowed
for abortion, miscarriage or confinement. This allowance will only lae paid in cases of members who have
paid dues for the nine months preceding the confinement and when doctor is present at such confinement,
whose certificate shall be produced as confirmation
thereof. Note—A maternity case shall be considered
as confinement case at the termination of six months
of pregnancy or after.
Venereal and alcoholic diseases and cases of
insanity.
The Association does not pay any portion of the
cost of vaccines, serums, insulin, oxygen, radium treatment or deep X-ray therapy, physiotherapy or shortwave diathermy, proprietary or patent medicines, except in cases coming under the Workmen's Compensation Act.
19
 The Association is not responsible for hospital or
other treatment for injuries received in accidents, other
than cases coming under the Workmen's Compensation
Act, where outside parties are responsible for such
accidents; but in the event of the injured party being
unable to recover such expenses, the Association will
allow such hospital and other treatment as provided
in the Constitution.
Emergency Calls
In emergency cases of sickness or injury every
effort should be made to contact an Association Doctor
before calling in an outside doctor. No bills of such
outside doctor will be paid by the Association except
for the necessary first attention. An Association Doctor
should be notified at the same time, so that he may
take charge of the case. Emergency calls will only be
recognized as such when they occur within the territory in which Association Doctors are giving service.
