2. The statement showed that there had been a considerable increase in the number of houses, notably Chinese houses.

3. Dealing first with Kowloon, there were extensive reclamation schemes in pro- gress at Kowloon City and at Shamshuipo and the filling in of the tidal flat at Taikok- tsui, extending on both sides of the Taipo Road, would shortly be undertaken. Large areas would therefore become available in the near future for the erection of Chinese houses.

4. As regards European houses, provision had been made in the current year's Estimates for the erection of a number of such houses on that portion of King's Park which lies to the eastward of the Rifle Range. The area in question was at present waste land, being covered with trees and undergrowth. The houses were intended, primarily, for the accommodation of members of the Civil Service or of the Naval and Military Establishments.

5. After discussing various suggestions, the Committee unanimously agreed to recommend that, in order to provide additional sites for European houses, the Rifle Range should be removed and the slopes of the hills bounding King's Park and also any portions of the Park itself, in addition to that already referred to, which are not utilized in connection with the Golf Course, should be rendered accessible by roads and disposed of as building sites.

6. With regard to the unbuilt-on areas south of Austin Road, the Chairman explained that practically the whole of this portion of the Kowloon Peninsula had origi- nally been leased as Garden Lots. In 1887, Government agreed to convert these Garden Lots into Inland Lots on payment of premium at the rate of cent per sq. ft. and Crown Rent at the rate of $200 per acre. So far as he had ascertained, no stipulation with regard to the erection of buildings on the converted lots was inserted in the Inland Lot Leases. The Committee requested that this matter should be further investigated.

7. As regards the large block of War Department land on the west side of Nathan Road, the Committee requested that it might be informed of the result of any representa- tions which may have been made to the Military Authorities regarding the possibility of surrendering to the Colonial Government a portion of the area adjoining Nathan Road.

8. In the case of Hongkong, the Chairman mentioned that it was estimated that the new road in course of construction from near the Naval Hospital to Wanchai Gap would render accessible sites for about 70 houses. On the hillsides above Wongneichong Village, it was estimated that sites for about 150 houses existed, all of which could be reached by branch roads from the road already referred to. The first section of a road by way of Wongneichong Gap to afford more direct communication with the South side of the Island would shortly be undertaken and it was intended to construct a road in continuation of Bowen Road, contouring the hills above Tai Hang Village. These roads would render accessible large areas of hillsides which were suitable for building pur- poses. In the western portion of Hongkong, the construction of a road skirting the southern slopes of Mount Davis, and connecting Pokfulam Road with Victoria Road, would shortly be begun and would render available sites for about 28 houses.

9. In order to make provision for the housing of the Chinese working classes, the Committee were of opinion that every endeavour should be made to expedite the carrying out of the Praya East Reclamation Scheme.

Laid before the Legislative Council this 17th day of June, 1920.

As a result of the question asked in Legislative Council by the Honourable Mr. P. H. HOLYOAK on the 30th January, 1919, a Committee was appointed consisting of the following for the purpose of selecting a new type of jinrikisha to be put into service in the Colony-Hon. Mr. E. D. C. WOLFE, Captain Superintendent of Police, Hon. Mr. P. H. HOLYOAK, Hon. Mr. S. H. DODWELL, Mr. A. SHELTON HOOPER, Mr. J. W. FRANKS, and Commander C. W. BECKWITH, R.N.

The Committee met in the compound of the Central Police Station on the 31st March, 1919, and five different types of jinrikishas were submitted for their inspection. Of these one had been imported from Shanghai, one was then plying for hire in Hong- kong and one in Kowloon, and two were specially made for the occasion. The Committee selected the best features of each type and a complete vehicle was constructed in accord- ance with this selection. This vehicle was put on view at the Central Police Station and all jinrikisha proprietors were invited to take the necessary notes for their guidance and were informed that in future only jinrikishas of this type would be passed by the Police for service.

There are 1,150 public jinrikishas licensed for hire on the lower levels of Hongkong, 16 for hire on Caine Road and the Upper Levels, and 15 for service on the Peak. 50 temporary licences have also been issued making a total of 1,231. Since the selection of the new type of vehicle by the Committee 348 of this type have been passed by the Police and brought into service in Hongkong and a similar number of the old type withdrawn. In Kowloon there are at present 600 public jinrikishas licensed for hire, of which some 250 were practically new at the time of the selection of the improved type. It would be unreasonable therefore to expect the proprietors of these jinrikishas to make any great change in their machines for some time so that only some 10 of the new type have so far been passed for service in Kowloon. At present also there is considerable difficulty in obtaining the materials for constructing new vehicles.

All the jinrikishas in the Colony have now been fitted with spring cushion seats and about one-third of each proprietor's vehicles has been fitted with thick rabber tyres. The remainder will be gradually fitted with thick tyres when the tyres at present in use require renewing.

PRELIMINARY REPORT ON THE PURCHASE AND SALE OF RICE BY THE GOVERNMENT OF HONGKONG DURING THE YEAR 1919.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency the Governor, 29th January, 1920.

From the beginning of last year it was realised that owing to the extensive purchases of rice that were being made to meet an abnormal situation in the Straits Settlements and Ceylon the Hongkong rice market was sure to be affected. At the end of the year 1918 the Government received an intimation from the Secretary of State that owing to the exports from India having been restricted the Colonies mentioned were endeavouring to obtain rice from Siam, and the Secretary of State was informed on the 4th January that the Government of Hongkong had never contemplated official purchases of Siamese rice, but could not prevent local merchants from placing orders in Siam if the state of the market there was favourable. On the 13th January information was received from the Government of Ceylon that arrangements had been made for the supply of rice to Ceylon which would not necessitate buying in Siam or French Indo- China.

2. Early in February Japan began to buy rice in large quantities in the Hongkong market, while at the same time the Government of Indo-China fixed the amount of rice for export as follows:-

February-March April May

120,000 tons.

60,000 60,000

3. On the 28th of May the Secretary of State enquired whether the Government of Hongkong was negotiating for the purchase of rice from Siam, and on the 5th June he suggested that in order to avoid competitive buying in Siam the Government should prohibit importation of rice from Siam on private account as had been done in Ceylon and the Straits Settlements. In reply the Secretary of State was informed that Hong- kong was an entrepôt for a very large rice trade with all parts of the world, local firms buying as agents for all countries and buyers in foreign countries transhipping in Hong- kong. It was pointed out that if an embargo were to be placed on the importation of rice it would seem probable that the result would be to divert trade round the Colony without achieving the object in view, and that the result to the large rice trade in the Colony would be most serious. That arrangements had been made to have sufficient rice for three months local consumption always in the Colony, estimated at about 27,000 tons. That careful watch was being kept on exports the endeavour being to prevent the export of abnormal amounts to ordinary destinations and to limit the exports to countries which did not normally draw on Hongkong to the lowest limits. In these circumstances the opinion was expressed that it would be very inadvisable to impose restrictions on importation. The Secretary of State replied on the 11th June that the matter of dealing with the rice situation was left to the discretion of the Officer Admin- istering the Government.

4. Before proceeding further it will be convenient to explain in some detail the paramount importance of the rice trade to the Colony of Hongkong. Rice is much the largest commodity dealt with in the trade returns and a large number of ships is employed in bringing it to the Colony and in carrying it away after it has been dealt with. The handling of the cargoes both at the ships and on shore gives employment to a large portion of the floating population as well as to a large number of the coolie class. The companies and individuals who own godowns also derive great benefit from the storage of the rice while in course of preparation for export. For the year 1918 the value of the rice imported was no less than £12,904,321, while the exports for the same period were valued at £11,608,509.

5. As has been often pointed out the Colony of Hongkong is in the unique position among the great ports of the Empire of producing practically no raw materials, but on the other hand of possessing in its geographical situation and in its splendid harbour unrivalled opportunities for dealing with an immense transhipment trade. It is in fact in the nature of a great wharf and godown where every class of goods can be handled expeditiously provided the machinery for doing so is kept at the highest pitch of effi- ciency and without any unnecessary restrictions retarding smooth working. Nothing could be more fatal to local trade than for an impression to be created in the great markets of the world that the Hongkong Authorities might place obstacles in the way of the quick despatch of cargoes, or interfere with contracts connected therewith.

6. With regard to the rice trade a step in the right direction was taken not long ago by the standardizing of rice by the Exporters and Dealers Association of Hongkong, in accordance with the repeated request of the California Rice Association. Prior to the adoption of this measure no limit was placed upon the amount of broken grains mixed with good whole rice, with the result that serious complaints came from American buyers. It is expected that the action taken by the Exporters and Dealers Association will have the effect of restoring confidence among buyers in America and elsewhere, whereby this valuable trade will be retained in Hongkong.

7. The bulk of the imported rice comes from Saigon and Bangkok, and is usually packed in single gunny bags of about 160 catties weight (213 lbs.), and, with the exception of some shipments to Japan, is never re-exported from Hongkong in the original bags. The principal grade of rice exported is known as "Siam usual", and is ordinarily made from a mixture of Siam rice and Saigon long rice in equal parts. Before mixing, the rice is screened so as to bring the amount of broken grains down to the standard. In the case of brown rice, especially when the season is advanced, it is the custom to winnow the rice before packing as it generally contains a quantity of dust and husks. The American market takes rice in 100 pounds double gunny bags and sometimes in double bags of 240 pounds. The Cuban market also takes the latter packing, but shipments intended for South America are usually packed in double bags of 193 pounds gross weight. It is this work of standardizing and re-packing, which makes the trade of such importance and gives employment to the large number of persons referred to in paragraph 4.

8. There is only one crop a year in Siam and Indo-China, the Siam crop being avail- able in December and January and the Saigon crop about a month or so later. Rice_is, however, exported from Hongkong all the year round according to demand. Japan has been recently the largest customer, the United States of America coming next.

Until a short time ago shipments for the Cuban market went to the Pacific ports of the United States, and were transhipped thence to their destination; but latterly Cuban buyers appear to have preferred to make direct shipments.

9. It will be clear from the account given in the foregoing paragraphs that the situation presented considerable difficulties, and the receipt of a telegram on the 14th June from H. M. Chargé d'Affaires at Bangkok to the effect that the Government of Siam had prohibited the export of rice from Siam as from the 12th July except under licence did not tend to improve matters. The price of both Siam and Saigon rice continued to rise the former to $15 a picul and the latter to $13 a picul, the poorer grades being rather less. To show how sensitive the feeling was in other countries it may be mentioned that on the 26th June a telegram was received from H. M. Minister at Tokyo stating that the Japanese Minister at Bangkok reported that transhipment of rice at Hongkong was to be prohibited shortly and enquiring whether the report was correct.

An assurance was given immediately that it was not intended to prohibit transhipment of rice at Hongkong. At the same time acting on the report above quoted a Japanese firm was about to make arrangements to divert two ships loading in Saigon so that they would proceed to Japan direct without calling at Hongkong. This was averted.

10. It was obvious that with a view to controlling the price and preserving the trade immediate action was necessary, and after some discussion it was decided to call a meeting of the principal employers of labour to consider the whole question. After two meetings it was decided that the only feasible course was for the Government to purchase rice and, subject to the approval of the Councils, this situation was accepted by the Government. A telegram was sent to the British Consul at Saigon on the 1st July enquiring whether it would be possible for the Government of Hongkong to buy Annam rice from the 1st August up to a maximum of five thousand tons a month for six months for the purpose of local consumption, and on the 4th July the Consul suggested that the best course would be for the Government to approach the Food Con- troller at Singapore with a view to buying 27,500 tons of rice which he was willing to resell, the price being about $13 a picul (Saigon currency) f.o.b., the market price at the time being considerably higher. This suggestion was adopted, and on the 11th July a telegram was received from the Colonial Secretary, Straits Settlements, stating that the Food Controller could sell 27,500 tons Saigon rice July allotment for October delivery at $13.30. Saigon dollars ex mill, and requesting the Government, if it wished for this rice, to remit to the British Consul at Saigon $1,500,000 Saigon dollars for the necessary advances.

11. The Officer Administering the Government thereupon summoned a meeting of the Unofficial Members of the Executive and Legislative Councils on the 15th July at which the Colonial Secretary and Mr. R. O. Hutchison were present, when it was decided to purchase the 27,500 tons of rice offered by the Food Controller, Singapore. A note of the proceedings is attached to this report. (Appendix I.)

12. It was realised that the Government would have to face a considerable loss of money. in giving effect to the decision to purchase rice, and it at once became apparent that the loss would be increased owing to the high rate of discount on the Hongkong dollar at Saigon. The discount at first was 23 per cent., but on subsequent purchases was somewhat lower. The Treasurer arranged with the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation for the financing of the purchases in Saigon, and the Government is much indebted to that institution for the valuable assistance rendered in this matter and for the moderate rate of four per cent. interest that has been charged on the overdraft. the 26th July a telegram was received from the Colonial Secretary, Straits Settlements, to the effect that owing to an error the Food Controller had offered 27,500 tons whereas 13,750 tons only were available, the balance having been sold to the Netherlands Indies. As no further supplies could be got from Saigon except at a prohibitive price it became necessary to make purchases locally and this was done to the extent of about 10,000 tons principally of broken rice to mix with the Saigon rice on arrival.

On

13. Mr. R. O. Hutchison was put in charge of the general control of the rice position and five of the leading Chinese rice merchants were invited to act on a Committee to arrange the purchase and price of rice for local consumption. Sufficient godown space was rented and everything was in order to begin sales on the 1st August.

14. Unfortunately at the end of July typhoon weather prevailed and it was im- possible to convey rice across the harbour to Yaumati. The result was that a portion of the population started looting rice shops and a riot took place outside the Yaumati Police Station. The Naval Authorities lent the tug "Cherub" and the Military Authori- ties the tug "Omphale" on the 28th July, which made it possible to send some rice to Yaumati and Hunghom. With the exception of some looting no other disturbances occurred. The rice was guarded by Military escorts for two days while being conveyed from the tugs to the shops. In Victoria looting on a rather serious scale took place for about a week, and it became necessary to start the Government sales of rice before the organization was completed.

15. It will be convenient to deal now with other measures taken to obtain supplies of rice. The July crop in the New Territories was a good one, and in order to ensure that the rice did not go into Kuangtung all export except to Hongkong was prohibited,

:

and it was notified that the Government would be prepared to buy rice at $10.14 a picul. It has been the custom for the New Territories to export their rice and buy cheaper rice in Hongkong for their own use. In the abnormal conditions prevailing this year this practice had to be abandoned.

16. An endeavour was made to obtain rice from Kuangtung, and after much corres- pondence the Government at Canton permitted the export of 10,000 piculs of Wuhu rice by the Kuangtung Food Relief Association to the Tung Wah Hospital at Hongkong at a price of $6.70 a picul. The Tung Wah Directors showed great energy in erecting a number of matsheds in Victoria, Shaukiwan and Aberdeen where many thousands of very poor people were supplied free of cost with a mixture of boiled rice and salt, known as congee, twice a day. This system of relief continued for several weeks and was most useful in preventing a great deal of distress.

17. An attempt was also made to get rice from the Hunan Province of China viâ Shanghai. H. M. Minister at Peking and the Consul at Changsha did all they could, and the Government at Peking was favourable to the project, but owing to the stipula- tions of the Governor of Hunan the price demanded was prohibitive so that the offers made had to be refused.

19. Appendix II shows the total amount of rice purchased by the Government up to the 30th September, the only further purchase being necessitated in November in order to comply with the terms of a contract for the sale of rice on consignment to America. This will be dealt with at a later stage of the report.

20. The rice purchased was divided into three classes under the designations Hong- kong No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3, and the recommendation of the Committee to fix the price of the three grades at 20, 16, and 123 cents a catty respectively was adopted. These prices were altered a few days later to suit the usage of Chinese buyers to 5 catties = $1,7 catties = $1, and 9 catties = $1, and before the end of August the price was further reduced to 5 catties $1, 74 catties = $1, and 10 catties = $1. No. 1 rice was Saigon round or long, No. 2 a mixture of Saigon round or long with an equal amount of broken. rice, and No. 3 a mixture of one-fifth Saigon round or long with four-fifths broken rice.

21. Sales of Government rice took place up to the 3rd September as follows:----

No. 1

No. 2

2,853 piculs. 8,838

About the 3rd September sales suddenly ceased and it was found that rice had begun to come into the Colony from Kuangtung. An excellent quality of rice was thus available for consumption in the Colony at the comparatively low price of $8 a picul.

22. In view, however, of the appearance of this rice on the market, the question immediately arose as to what was to be done with the rice imported by the Govern- ment and bought locally. Some of the latter already showed signs of deterioration and it was decided to sell the rice bought in the New Territories at $8 a picul and to make enquiries as to the best markets in which to sell all the remainder with the exception of a few thousand tons. Japan had ceased to buy any rice in Hongkong and the Straits Settlements did not require any. The sterling value of the dollar had continued rising so that the price to be obtained in countries with a gold standard was becoming less when reckoned in dollars. Eventually arrangements were made to sell 10,000 tons on consignment to America and about the same amount locally. A careful examination of the rice stored in the godowns in Victoria showed that much of it was discoloured and full of weevils, but notwithstanding this prices were obtained which were quite good consider- ing the state of the market. In fact the sales were made just in time to avert very serious losses indeed owing to the rice becoming practically unsaleable.

..

23. On the 19th September an Ordinance was passed providing for the acquisition and disposal of Rice by the Hongkong Government, and for validating acts previously done. The Ordinance is printed as Appendix III to this report.

24. The lists of rice purchased showed certain quantities of Saigon round and Saigon long rice, and on these lists the contract mentioned above for the sale of 10,000 tons to America was calculated. It specified 6,500 tons of Saigon round and 3,500 tons of Saigon long, but when the rice came to be sifted to prepare it for export it was found that only 500 tons of the long rice existed, the remainder being round. As the rice had already been sold in America the consignees there refused to alter the amounts of each class contracted for and it was necessary to go into the market and buy 3,000 tons of long rice to make up the necessary amount. This was effected at a price of about $13.50 a picul, which meant a loss on the net price obtained in America of about $1.75 a picul. The 3,000 tons of discarded round rice were subsequently sold at about the same price as would have been obtained in America.

25. A report was called for as to how the confusion between long and round rice had arisen. It appeared that originally the books were made out to show the different qualities of rice, long, round, and broken, and any other grades used on the foreign market, but as this classification was unnecessary for local sales no distinction was sub- sequently made between long and round rice as the price was the same, and the books were drawn up accordingly. The error caused a loss of nearly $140,000 on a purely technical point of difference in making the contract with the American buyers.

26. The cost to the Colony of the transactions in rice up to the end of the year 1919 will be well over $2,000,000. The price of the rice bought at Saigon was much enhanced by the high rate of discount on the Hongkong dollar at Saigon. The cost of 13,750 tons in Saigon currency was $3,072,300, the equivalent in Hongkong currency being $3,766,211, a difference of $693,911. When negotiations were begun for selling rice to America the rate of exchange was about eighty gold dollars for one hundred Hongkong dollars, and when the exchange was fixed it had risen to ninety-five gold dollars for one hundred Hongkong dollars. The rice was sold at 205 gold dollars a short ton for 10,000 tons and the difference in the amount to be received at exchange of 80 and 95 is $404,605 the figures being as follows:-

{

10,000 tons @ G. $205 a ton

@ Exchange of 80

95 =

$2,562,500 2,157,895

J

$ 404,605

Freight to America also rose from G. $15 to G. $25 during the same period. The balance of the total loss incurred on the purchase and sale of rice is made up of actual reduction in the price at which local sales had to be made of rice bought locally, rent of godowns, freight on rice from Saigon and Rangoon, commissions on sale of Government rice, interest on overdraft, and insurance. All these charges will be shown in the final 'account.

27. It will be clear from the above that whatever sum in dollars representing the loss is eventually arrived at will scarcely indicate the real facts. The Colony has been receiving during the past four months a supply of excellent rice from Kuangtung at a low price, but it is more than probable that if the Government rice had not been here a considerably higher price would have been demanded. The indirect advantage to the Colony of the policy of non-interference with the ordinary rice trade cannot be reckoned in dollars, but the gain is so manifest that the policy requires no justification.

28. When it became clear that there was no other course open than to sell the bulk of the rice which had been purchased with the least possible delay, the Government sought the advice of those connected with the rice trade, who were in a position to help. Mr. Barretto of the firm of J. M. da Rocha & Co., Messrs. E. A. Beaumont & Co., Messrs. Loxley & Co., and the Hongkong Mercantile Company all gave valuable assistance without which it would have been very difficult to effect satisfactory sales. In the work during August of mixing and selling the graded rice Mr. R. O. Hutchison, Mr. Taylor of

6

the Opium Monopoly, and the Chinese gentlemen on the Committee rendered very good service, while from the middle of September until the end of November Commander C. W. Beckwith, R.N., who is acting as Superintendent of Imports and Exports, and Mr. A. K. Taylor of the Police Force, temporarily attached to the Department, worked strenuously to avert the danger which threatened the safety of the stocks of rice.

29. The situation dealt with in this report is happily without precedent in the history of the Colony, and this is not surprising. Only events of a most unusual character could produce such a crisis. First, a world shortage of cereals combined with a partial failure of the rice crop in Siam, one of the principal producing areas; secondly, an abnormal trade situation in Indo-China leading to such a rise in exchange rates as to make the price of rice in the currency of the Colony almost prohibitive; thirdly, the increase in the sterling value of silver during the critical period from about 48 pence to 75 pence an ounce; and lastly, the unexpected arrival in the Colony of abundant supplies of good and cheap rice from a source supposed to be closed, which rendered the large supplies of rice bought under adverse conditions useless for the immediate purpose for which they were intended.

30. Though the transactions of less than five months have resulted in a large drain on the financial resources of the Colony, these transactions may be considered as covering a period of probably a year more. The difficulties attending the provision of proper supplies of rice for the Colony at a moderate price are by no means surmounted, so far as can be seen, but the valuable experience gained by what occurred last year, will enable proper precautions to be taken, with, it is to be hoped, little extra loss, to meet any possible crisis during the current year. The Colony has become accustomed to a regular supply of rice at a price far lower than it can be obtained for, unless steps are taken early and in the right quarter to ensure that it will be available when required.

Colonial Secretary.

Appendix I.

His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government met the Unofficial Mem- bers of Executive Council and Legislative Council in the Council Chamber on Tuesday 15th July, 1919, at 9.30 a.m. The Colonial Secretary and Mr. R. O. Hutchison were also present.

His Excellency outlined the situation in which the Colony stood at present as regards its rice supply for the remainder of the year, and read the telegraphic corres- pondence which had taken place with the Secretary of State for the Colonies, the Straits Settlements, Saigon and Siam on the possibility of securing a sufficient supply. The Secretary of State had now left the matter to the discretion of the Colonial Government.

The situation, he said, was serious, but not as bad as it might be. The aim of the Government was to avoid any interference with the regular rice trade of the Colony. The Straits Settlements had recently taken steps to secure a Government controlled supply of rice and had fixed the price at $25 a picul. This Government had now had an offer through His Britannic Majesty's Consul, Saigon, for the sale of 27,500 tons of No. 1 White Rice, which had been purchased by him for the Straits Settlements Govern- ment, but was not now required. The price would be $13.30 (Saigon Currency) ex mill.

His Excellency desired to know whether the Unofficial Members approved the purchase of this quantity. The total cost at which it could be brought to Hongkong was approximately $17 per picul. The assistance of the British Consul had been asked in order to secure an export permit from Saigon to enable the rice to be brought to Hong- kong, export being at present prohibited. This Government had also as an alternative telegraphed to His Majesty's Minister at Peking for permission to export 3,000 tons of rice monthly from China, the transaction being arranged if necessary through a private individual, so as to avoid the difficulty which China might have in refusing similar requests from other Governments.

There was also the chance of getting rice from Bangkok, provided an export permit could be obtained. A telegram had been sent to Bangkok asking whether this was possible.

Failing a supply from North China or from Bangkok, he wished to proceed with the Saigon offer. By doing so we should secure enough supplies to last till the end of the year and we could always sell at the purchasing price if any other solution became possible. The Government would have to sell at a flat rate of say $15 per picul and would lose on the transaction. The price could be increased later, but the loss might have to be made good by special taxation.

The Colonial Secretary pointed out that it would be a great advantage to the employer to fix the price. It would be possible to make a definite allowance to employees to meet the increased cost of rice.

Mr. Stabb expressed the opinion that the Government would be wise to accept the Saigon offer and the other Unofficial Members agreed.

His Excellency said that he would telegraph accordingly.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE APPOINTED TO CONSIDER THE QUESTION OF MAKING PROVISION FOR THE PROTECTION OF LIFE AND PROPERTY

IN THE HARBOUR DURING TYPHOON WEATHER.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency the Governor, 17th June, 1920.

HONGKONG, 26th April, 1920.

SIR, We the Committee appointed by His Excellency the Governor by notification in the Government Gazette dated 7th January, 1920, "to consider and report upon the question of making provision for the protection of life and property in the Harbour during typhoon weather" have the honour accordingly to submit our report and recom- mendations.

2. The suggestions that have from time to time been put forward deal with :-

(a.)—The provision of life boats easily handled but not adapted for towing. (b.) The provision of tugs and launches for towing and life saving. (c.)-The provision of adequate Typhoon Shelters. (d.)—The provision of sufficient Typhoon Signals.

3. Taking these proposals in their order :--

(a.)--Lifeboats.-The Committee (Captain Taylour dissenting) resolved to make no recommendation in this respect as it was thought that there was no work within their scope that could not equally well be carried out by tugs and launches provided with life lines.

Captain Taylour in dissenting expressed the view that there was ample justification for the provision of such lifeboats: though the pro- vision of a shelter for small boats at the West end of the Harbour might lead him to modify his opinion.

(b.)-Tugs and Launches for towing. The provision and organisation of these was considered by the Committee as a matter of urgency, to be dealt with as far as possible in readiness for the typhoon season of the current year.

It was resolved to recommend that the Government should ulti- mately provide at least two tugs of about 100 ft. in length and 500 to 750 H. P. whose first duty should be the protection of life and property in typhoon weather. In addition, that the Naval Authorities and other owners of suitable tugs be approached to permit them to assist as soon as they could be spared from their own proper duties: the provision of at least two Government tugs being essential as no others are likely to be available for outside work for some little time after the necessity has arisen.

The Government tugs while on other than typhoon duty could if thought fit be manned entirely by Chinese: but on typhoon duty they should be in charge of European Seamen with local knowledge of the

56

Harbour, to be detailed from the qualified men (volunteers) in the regular service of the Government-the Harbour Office for example. Further European assistance would probably be desirable and for this purpose a roll of available volunteers should be kept in readiness at some convenient centre: preferably the Naval Yard as it is the qualified men in the Naval Service who are particularly indicated in this connec- tion..

In other than typhoon weather the Committee anticipate that con- siderable employment could be found for the launches: even by letting them out on hire, if their time could not be filled by such work as attend- ing to lighthouses or towing the heavier Sanitary Board barges out to sea, and such other work as could be found for them by the Harbour Master.

Chinese launches and others not under Government control should be subjected to no special regulation: it is considered that any attempt to regulate them would probably result in making them unwilling to come forward when needed. The only complaint concerning them is that at times exorbitant charges are made for towage and it is suggested that these would be tempered by drawing up and publishing a scale of charges for the tugs controlled by Government. A suggested scale is attached but it is probable that the charges given are too low, aud that the scale itself will need greater particularisation in the light of experience yet to be gathered. The consideration and adjustment as necessary of this matter would best be left to the Board referred to in paragraph 4 below.

(c.) (i.)—Shelters.--It was resolved to recommend the sub-division of the Yau- mati Shelter into three sections. As it stands at present it is wide enough for quite a serious sea, and offers no opportunity for smaller boats to be interlocked, as they are unable to fill any one section of the shelter. The division would break the sea, and would give the smaller boats the opportunity they require. We find opinion on the necessity of sub- dividing the shelter very strongly held among the floating population in the Harbour. They anticipate that a really serious typhoon will occasion much damage among the craft that take shelter in Yaumati, unless this alteration is carried out.

(c.) (ii.)—It was unanimously resolved to recommend the provision of a second shelter in Belcher's Bay (on the lines of the scheme already suggested to the Government by Captain Taylour) to provide a refuge for craft unable to make head against an Easterly wind. Failing a tow (probably at very high rates if available at all) such craft have little to hope for: as the record of wrecks at the West end of the Harbour shows.

(d.)-Signals. In view of the number of ships that take refuge in Junk Bay, it was resolved to recommend that full typhoon signals should be repeated from some point visible from the whole of the Bay: and the Battery on the Southern side of the Lyeemun Pass is suggested as a suitable position.

4. The appointment of a permanent Board to deal with executive detail and such questions as will from time to time arise is recommended by the Committee as a matter of importance. The Board suggested would comprise only the Harbour Master, the Commander Naval Yard, and a third member who should be a resident civilian with marine experience. To this Board would be entrusted the detailed regulation of the tugs (and of the launches, so far as any regulation of the matter would be possible) their control on duty from the Naval Yard (signallers from among the volunteers already mentioned might be of value in this connection) and it could sit also when called upon as a Board of Arbitration as to the charges to be fairly made. They need have no powers in this matter except the power of summoning witnesses: it is better that at first they should not, for fear of the possible effect on Chinese launches which venture out on their own account: but their expressed opinion would carry weight and would no doubt have a practical effect on the Insurance Companies who might be called upon to pay the fees demanded and their existence would thus tend still further to bring charges to a reasonable level.

,

57

It would be necessary moreover to pay the crews of the Government tugs a special allowance of some nature in proportion to the severity of the weather: this again could be referred to the Board for their recommendation according to the circumstances.

We have the honour to be,

The above charges are for towing from Eastern basin of Harbour into the Causeway Bay Shelter, or into Yaumati Shelter, or from Western basin of the Harbour into Yau- mati Shelter.

From the Western basin into Causeway Bay Shelter, double these charges are pay- able when the wind is from the Eastward and the Black Signals are hoisted (including the Black Cross).

58

Minute by Captain Taylour.

The draft report covers everything, I think. But I should like to give my reasons for dissenting from (a). There is no doubt that many native craft founder during typhoons out in the harbour before assistance can be rendered to them, and the crews are generally drowned. The tugs proposed to be used for towing purposes are not suit- able for picking up men in the water; they are not sufficiently handy, are of too high freeboard to make it easy to reach a man in the water and get him on board, they could not lower boats to pick them up, as no ordinary boat could exist in the heavy sea, and they would be apt to do more harm than good in this direction, by injuring the men they want to save, with the propellers and rubbing streaks. The same objections apply to the Chinese launches which are big enough to be of use for towing. The motor lifeboats I propose are specially fitted for lifesaving work, and that by reason of their not being suitable for towing, while the tugs, by reason of their being designed for towing, are not adapted for life saving.

2. As to the scale of towing charges, on reconsidering the matter, I am of opinion that heavily laden cargo boats should pay double fees, as they are not only heavier and more difficult to tow, but are more likely to founder, and are hence rescued from double danger by being towed into safety. An empty cargo boat is, of course, also harder to tow, as she holds so much wind, but as the other point (likelihood of foundering) does not apply, and she is not earning money, I don't think she should be charged extra, especially as the rest of the craft forming the tow would be apt to steady her.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE APPOINTED TO INVESTIGATE CERTAIN MATTERS CONNECTED WITH THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE VICTORIA GAOL.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency the Governor, 17th June, 1920.

Report of a Committee consisting of the Honourable Mr. H. E. POLLOCK, K.C., Chairman, the Honourable Mr. R. O. HUTCHISON, M.B.E., and the Honourable Mr. Ho Fook, appointed by His Excellency the Governor to report upon the following subjects in connection with the Victoria Gaol, namely

(a) as to whether there is any foundation for the statements made by the con-

victed man, Wong Kwong;

(b) as to any matters connected with the murders or the escape of the prisoners

that the Committee think should be brought to notice;

(c) as to the steps necessary to be taken to prevent similar incidents in future; (d) generally on any point in which the Committee consider that the gaol admin-

istration can be improved.

1. The Committee have held several sittings in Mr. Pollock's office and have made four visits to Victoria Gaol, three by daylight, and one after dark, and have examined Mr. Franks, Dr. Woodman, Dr. Valentine, Chief Warder Passmore, Principal Warder Robertson, and the convicted man, Mok Sing, as witnesses; and have also inspected at the Central Police Station the exhibits in the Victoria Gaol murder trial.

2. With regard to the statements of Wong Kwong-

(a) We are clearly of opinion that there is no foundation whatever for the allegations of the prisoner as to insufficient feeding. On the contrary, Dr. Woodman and Dr. Valentine informed us that they are of opinion that the food allowed by the Regulations is sufficient and a list (com- piled between May and September, 1919) of the respective weights of prisoners (whose sentences varied from 1 to 12 months) on their admis- sion and discharge respectively, shows, on the average, a slight gain in weight, the average gain in weight being greater in the case of long sentence prisoners than in those with short sentences. We also inspected the rations distributed to prisoners and found that they were apparently in order and wholesome.

(b) As regards the allegations about cigarettes and tobacco being brought into the gaol, we gather that this does happen occasionally and is difficult to prevent. We strongly recommend that the gaol regulations be amended for the purpose of making it legal for any officer of the gaol, below a certain rank, to be searched under European supervision upon entering and leaving the gaol.

(c) With regard to the allegations of Wong Kwong as to unnatural offences. inside the gaol, it is impossible for us to obtain any satisfactory evidence. We feel bound to condemn the system which existed, during the recent shortage of staff, of the search of Chinese cells by Indian Warders only,

..

42

as giving at all events an opportunity for abuses of this nature, and as also affording a ready occasion for tobacco or implements or food being handed to Chinese prisoners. We enquired about the alleged misconduct of Principal Warder No. 32, but we are satisfied that such misconduct did not take place.

(d) With regard to the allegations of prisoners being ill-used, we have carefully questioned the above 6 witnesses upon the subject, and are of opinion that such allegations are not well founded.

(e) Upon the food question generally, we may add that it is clear that a considerable outbreak of beri-beri occurred in the gaol in October/ November last, which caused a further shortage of the gaol staff in those months inasmuch as many of the prisoners were removed to Kennedy Town. The beri-beri was due to the prisoners being put on a diet of white rice, and we think it regrettable that the beef congee diet was not started sooner. The experiment which was tried of mixing bran with the rice, though no doubt good from a medical point of view, was a failure, as the prisoners absolutely refused to eat the rice mixed with bran. Such an incident shows that prisoners are by no means so powerless to voice their grievances as is suggested by Wong Kwong; and the state- ments of the Chief Warder, Principal Warder Robertson, and Mok Sing have satisfied us that prisoners are afforded ample and unrestricted opportunity of making complaints about food, ill-treatment and other

matters.

(f) There were certainly no deaths from starvation in 1918 or 1919. In every

case of a death in the gaol an Inquest is held.

(g) We do not think it worth while to comment further on Wong Kwong's

statements.

In dealing with questions relating to the food, clothing and treatment of prisoners, we have thought it advisable (though it does not fall strictly within the terms of the reference to us) to go into the statements of the other convicted man, Mok Sing, as reported in the Daily Press of Tuesday the 23rd March, 1920, more especially as his remarks were far more connected and coherent than those of Wong Kwong; and, in order to sift his complaints fully to the bottom, we have taken a very full statement from Principal Warder Robertson (referred to by Mok Sing at his trial as a kind man) and have interviewed Mok Sing himself at some length.

(1.) As regards food, Mok Sing complains :--- (a) That he was not given enough food;

(b) That the rice was not properly cooked;

(c) That the prisoners were sometimes given rotten fish and bad food; (d) That condemned prisoners do not receive the proper allowance of food; (e) That short sentence prisoners do not get the proper Regulation allowance

of food;

(f) That long sentence prisoners do not get the proper Regulation allowance of

food;

(g) That if prisoners wanted to weigh the rice they were hindered in doing so.

Our findings on the above are as follows:

(a) That such is not the case;

(b) That during the white rice period last year, owing to the rice being partly broken rice, it was very difficult to cook and was, in some instances, not well cooked;

(c) That, in summer time, the fish was occasionally bad, but that it was changed by the compradore, on complaint being made, either for fresh fish, or, if that could not be procured, salt fish was supplied in its place;

(d) That such is not the case;

(e) and (f) That such is not the case. We recommend however that a new measure be made for the equivalent of 16 oz. of food, which is one of the regular rations.

(g) We are satisfied that this statement is absolutely unfounded. Mok Sing admitted that he was allowed, when he complained of short allowance

3

ནཾ

43

of rice, to see it weighed and was not scolded or hindered in any way; and we are satisfied, from what the Chief and Principal Warder told us that no punishment is inflicted on any prisoner for making unfounded complaints of short weight, unless he has done so 3 times at least, in which event he is either cautioned or put on rice and water for a day.

(2) Other complaints made by Mok Sing were :—

(a) That they were not given enough blankets;

(b) That during this past winter, they were supplied with a flannelette shirt,

instead of a flannel shirt.

As regards point (a) we are satisfied that the reserve of blankets was too low this last winter, and that the Medical Officer's recommendation as regards extra blankets for prisoners could not be carried out; and we recommend that a larger reserve of blankets be kept in the future.

As regards point (b) we are satisfied that there was cause for complaint owing to a single flannelette shirt being issued to prisoners for a few weeks in November-Decem- ber, 1919, but this was afterwards remedied by two flannelette shirts being issued in lieu of one flannel shirt. We have been informed by the Chief Warder that the flannel ordered from England has now arrived and is being made up into flannel shirts for the pri-

soners.

3. Comments on and suggestions for the Reform of Gaol Administration will now be made, and will be accompanied by occasional references to the Verdict of the Coroner's jury, a copy of which has been forwarded to us.

4. The first suggestion of the Coroner's jury is that the numerous implements found in Cell 63 after the escape of the prisoners could not all of them have come there without some collusion between the prisoners and the officials of the gaol. We think that probably this is so; but proper supervision in searching the prisoners on their going off duty and in searching their cells ought to have made such collusion impossible. We are satisfied that the non-discovery of such implements in Cell 63 by the Warders who searched that portion of the gaol on Saturday the 13th December, 1919, was due to gross negligence on the part of two Indian Warders, who have since been dismissed.

We are. however, clear that the chupatti and the ginger which were found in Cell 63 must have been introduced into that cell by direct collusion between an Indian Warder and Prisoner 791.

5. As regards searching the cells of prisoners, we understand from Mr. Franks, who has had some years' experience at Dartmoor and Brixton gaols, that it is the custom in England, as it is here, to search the cells only once a week in addition to the ordinary daily inspections.

We desire to point out that such daily inspections are only for the purpose of seeing that everything is tidy and are inadequate for the discovery of any hidden implements. We also have to point out in connection with the searching of cells that, at the time of the occurrence in question, owing to the shortage of the staff, which has since been remedied, it was the custom to have such searches of cells conducted entirely by Indians instead of, as now, under European supervision. It is certain that two of the weapons, (fashioned out of files) which were exhibits in the murder trial, as well as the key for opening the door of the cells (also an exhibit) were manufactured at the tinsmith's shop. It also seems probable that the key of the gate, leading out into the yard, was manu- factured at the Tinsmith's shop. The above shows in our opinion an extraordinary lack of supervision.

Mr. Franks is opposed to the closing down of the tinsmith's shop on the ground that it is useful for minor repairs and for making food tins and iron buckets, but we are of opinion that, on the whole, it is desirable that the tinsmith's shop should be closed, and that the work of the tinsmiths who are about ten in number, should be carried out otherwise. In the course of our inspection we found one of the prisoner tinsmiths mending one of the locks of the gaol under European supervision, but we consider that such a practice and also the practice of repairing the keys of the gaol in the tinsmith's shop is most undesirable; and it is significant that one of the prisoners who escaped is an expert blacksmith.

44

At the same time we may add that there are other weapons in the carpenter's, shoe- maker's, and tailor's shops which necessitate a much stricter search being made on prisoners when they come off duty than has been the case in the past. In fact some of the exhibits in the murder trial, such as the part of the shoemaker's knife, were probably conveyed by a prisoner from the shoemaker's or carpenter's shop.

6. With regard to the prisoners having escaped in suits of plain clothes, they pro- bably smuggled such suits (consisting of grey shirting material, out of the tailor's shop) under their prison clothes, and we are quite convinced that, with the small staff then available for supervision, such smuggling would have been a comparatively easy matter.

7. As regards the lighting system, it seems to us that the yard in the neighbour- hood of the block from which the prisoners escaped, requires further lighting, and we would suggest that electric lights be put in to supplement the present gas lights, and we would also suggest that in the interior of the block, from which the prisoners escaped, (which is the biggest block in the prison), further electric light should be put so as to permit of all the corridors being flooded with light in case of emergency.

8. As regards the alarm system, we think that the addition, which has been made since the occurrence, by which the alarm calls up the Police as well as the Gaol officers, is a considerable improvement on the practice existing at the time of the murder; and we do not think it necessary to make any further recommendation upon the subject except to say that in F. Block the alarm should be placed inside the grille enclosure, which we recommend hereafter for the Reserve Guard.

9. The recommendation of the jury that no less than two European Warders should be on duty inside of the prison at the same time at night has, we understand, been carried into effect.

10. With reference to the jury's recommendation that "an adequate supply of "firearms should be readily available in case of necessity", the Committee are of opinion-

(i) that it is not desirable or necessary that the officers doing duty inside the prison should be armed, inasmuch as prisoners might snatch the arms from the officers and use the arms against them;

(ii) that there should be a reserve of firearms in grilles, under the charge of

Reserve Guards.

11. With regard to the present locking system, we would observe—

() That it is clear from Mr. Franks' statements to us and from the way in which Prisoner 791 got out of his cell, that the system of locks in the gaol cells, by which a lock is only screwed on to the door from the inside of the cell instead of being rivetted on to it is a bad and precarious one, and in this connection we indorse Mr. Franks' recommendation that long iron bars in slots should be placed, each bar to cover three cells, in sockets outside of every cell so as to prevent the cell doors, all of which open outwards, from being opened by the prisoner even if the lock is removed or otherwise tampered with.

(ii) We consider that the practice which has since been followed in F. Block, of locking one of the internal gates in the upper corridor, is good as a purely temporary measure and should be continued until the grille for the Reserve Guard in F. Block is completed.

(iii) We also consider that the recommendation by Mr. Franks, that good Yale

locks should be put upon the various gates, leading from the various, blocks down to the yard, is a good one, and should be carried out as soon as possible, as that will mean two locks on those gates, instead of one, and we consider such an additional lock is the more desirable in view of the key which has been missing since April last.

While we think it regrettable that some remedial measure was not adopted after the loss of the key in April last, we think it only fair to add that:

(1) The defaulters' book of the Gaol from 1894 to 1901, which is the only old defaulters' book which Mr. Franks has been able to get hold of, shows that between the years 1894 and 1901 keys were lost by Warders on no

i

.ནཾ

45

less than eight occasions; the punishments varying from a reprimand to a fine of $2.50. In the present instance the Indiar Warder who lost the key was fined $3.

Such a punishment by a sinall fine for so grave an offence is, in our opinion, wholly inadequate, and we recommend that the Gaol Regula- tions be amended so as to make the loss by an officer of the Gaol of any of the gaol keys punishable by instant dismissal from the Service. (2) That the key, which was lost in April last, would appear to have been lost between D. Hall and the lower yard or else outside of the Prison altogether, and that none of the prisoners who escaped could have picked it up as they were all employed in another part of the Gaol.

(3) That the system of repairing locks and keys in the prison which we have already condemned above, and the fact (already referred to) of a cell key and daggers having been made in the tinsmith's shop, inclines us to believe that in all probability that key with which the escaping prisoners opened the gate into the yard was also manufactured in the tinsmith's shop.

12. To sum up, we report to the Government as follows in regard to the subjects referred to us :--

As regards (a) that there is no foundation for such statements.

As above stated, however, in dealing with the complaints of the prisoner Mok Sing, we recommend that a new measure, i.e., a 16 oz. measure, be adopted.

In regard to records of complaints by prisoners as to:--

(a) Food;

(b) Ill-treatment.

We find that such complaints are very much mixed up with other matters in the Records, and are consequently difficult to extract for purpose of comparison; and we accordingly recommend that a new book, to be called the Prisoners Complaint Ledger, be started for the purpose of recording complaints made by prisoners and that such Ledger be divided into three columns headed respectively:-

1. Complaints about food. 2. Complaints of ill-treatment.

Other complaints.

Such Ledger ought to be entered up daily.

3.

We also recommend the institution of a similar book for the Visiting Justices, in addition to the ordinary Visiting Justices Book, for the entry of com- plaints made by prisoners to the Visiting Justices under similar head-

ings.

As regards (b) :~

(i) The procuring of carpentering implements for their escape and plain clothes from the tailor's shop by the escaping prisoners was due to collusion or gross negligence on the part of the Warders who were responsible for the searching of the prisoners on their leaving work, and for searching their cells. This state of affairs can only be remedied by adequate European supervision.

(ii) The procuring by the prisoners of weapons of offence for the perpetration of the murders of the Warders was due to extreme lack of supervision in the tinsmith's shop, where such weapons were fashioned out of files.

(iii) The making of the key by which 3 out of the 4 prisoners were let out of their cells took place in the tinsmith's shop and was due to gross negligence in supervision. Possibly the key by which the prisoners let themselves out into the yard was also made in the tinsmith's shop.

46

(iv) A proper and thorough search by the two Indian Warders (since dismissed) on the afternoon of the 13th December of the cells of the prisoners would have prevented the catastrophe. (v) The European staff became seriously depleted during the past few years, owing to the war and other causes, and such deple- tion of staff was brought to the notice of the Government by the Assistant Superintendent of the Gaol on the 12th August, 1918, in C.S.O. 2737/1918, but was not remedied till after the recent escape of prisoners.

As regards (e), namely, the steps necessary to be taken to prevent similar incidents in future, we recommend:-

(i) The abolition of the tinsmith's shop.

(ii) Adequate searching of prisioners when they are coming off

work, under European supervision.

(2) The putting of iron bars outside the cells of prisoners in secure sockets, so as to prevent them from breaking out even if they succeeded in removing or opening the locks.

(iv) The provision of electric lights in the yard and corridors inclu-

ding special emergency lights.

(v) The building of a grille across the entrance hall to F. Block for a Reserve Guard; inside of which grille should be kept an alarm, electric switch board, and a reserve of firearms.

(vi) Another armed Reserve Guard, to be placed at another point in

the Gaol, to be determined upon by the Superintendent. (vii) That two European Warders be always on duty at night

inside the gaol.

(viii) That all searches of cells be made under European supervision, and that the weekly search be of a most thorough and effective character.

(ix) That additional locks, of different make from the present, be provided to all the gates of the prison leading out on to the yard.

(x) That no prisoners be kept on the side of the gaol west of the tunnel, which should be practicable when the new convict prison is built. (On this side of the gaol there is a house whose windows and balconies overlook and almost overhang the Gaol.)

(xi) That the Gaol Regulations be amended, as above advised,

namely:-

(i) To allow of Prison Officers below a certain rank being

searched on entering and leaving the Gaol;

(ii) To allow of loss of a gaol key being punishable with

instant dismissal from the Service.

(xii) That all food and stores for prisoners brought_into_Gaol be weighed and checked by or in the presence of an European Officer and entered by him in a book kept for the purpose. (xiii) That a much bigger reserve of blankets be kept in future. (xiv) That a new measure for rice, i.e., a 16 oz. measure, be adopted. (xv) That two Prisoners Complaint Ledgers be instituted, one for the Daily Record of such complaints and the other for record of complaints by prisoners to the Visiting Justices.

13. Generally, we recommend----

(1.) That Indian Warders should be recruited from India instead of locally. (2.) That the Superintendent of the Gaol ought to be entirely distinct from and independent of the Captain Superintendent of Police, as was formerly the case; in order that full responsibility may rest upon the actual Executive Head.

(3.) That Chinese Justices of the Peace ought to be allowed to minute the Visiting Justices Book in the Gaol in the Chinese language, if they should so desire.

(4) That, if possible, on the reconstruction of the Gaol, crank, shot drill, and stone carrying be abolished and be superseded by other forms of hard labour of an useful and reformatory character.

(5) That, so far as possible, frequent changes of the Medical Officer of the Gaol should be avoided. Since January, 1919, the sequence of Medical Officers has been Dr. Koch, Captain Burn, Captain Archer, Dr. Woodman, Dr. Valentine, Captain Archer.
