requiring cargo consigned to him to be loaded direct from a ship’s
slings into railway wagons shall give notice to the Wharf Manager of that
requirement, before 8 a.m. of the same day upon which the cargo is to be

(5) Where cargo to
which this regulation refers is, for any reason, handled into sheds, or on to
any wharf in the Port, the wharfage dues properly applying to that method
