Default Pilothouse to engineroom communication

Perhaps this has been discussed before.

Was there a precursor to the bell system on steamboats?

I have visions of a line of men stretched from the pilothouse stairs to the engineroom, relaying orders.

When did the telegraph come into common use on the river.

How many other inventions like the wheel outside the SPRAGUE's pilothouse came about to avoid miscommunication?

How do the modern methods compare for today's river captains?

Just curious!
