THE ERECTION ON EXISTING FOUNDATIONS OF BONHAM ROAD SCHOOL.

CONTRACT No. 42 of 1923. CONTRACTOR: MESSRS. KIN LEE & Co.

Quarterly Report ending 30th September, 1924.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency the Governor on the 3rd November, 1924. ·

The contract for the above building was signed on the 11th of April last and until recently the work has been seriously delayed by the difficulty of obtaining facing bricks in sufficient quantities. Within the limits which this difficulty enforced the contractor has made every effort by the erection of workshops, preparation of frames and joinery, etc. to carry on with the work. Orders were placed for facing bricks with manufacturers in Canton and Amoy and although regular delivery in sufficient quantities was promised to the contractor small consignments only of from 5,000 to 10,000 were delivered at long intervals and, during the first five months of the contract time a total of about 40,000 only were delivered out of 600,000 required. It was clearly impossible to rely on these sources of supply any longer.

Early in September enquiries were made and samples obtained by the Architectural Office from local agents for the supply of Formosa bricks and the contractor entered into a contract with the Mitsui Bussan Kaisha for the supply of 600,000 facing bricks. The first half of this quantity was delivered on the 22nd September, the bricks were of good quality and colour and well packed in straw, the balance will be delivered when required at one month's notice. The contractor immediately placed a large staff of bricklayers on the work and already considerable progress has been made.

The next three months should produce a complete change in the progress of the building.

Preamble.

Colony of Hongkong.

Since 1841, when the Island and Peninsula were ceded to Great Britain, the Colony of Hongkong has become a thriving centre of industrial and commercial activity, its commercial importance being due to its unique geographical position and its almost unrivalled steamship communication with the rest of the world. Situated at the mouth of the Canton delta into which flow the West, North and East Rivers navigable for a total of about 630 miles by small River Steamboats, and their numerous tributaries and small canals navigated by native craft wherever there is sufficient depth of water, the Colony has developed into a great entrepôt of trade and the principal European-Chinese financial centre for South-east Asia. The leading industries are shipbuilding, sugar refining, rope-making, the manufacture of cement and tiles, besides many native industries such as rattan work, machine knitting, the manufacture of sauces, the build- ing of native craft, furniture-making, canning, and putting the marketing touch on many of the products of the territories of South China.

The Colony, including leased territories, has an area of about 410 square miles and the population approximates one million, whilst Kwangtung, the neighbouring province of South China for which Hongkong is the distributing centre, has an area of about 100,000 square miles and said to have a population of 32 millions, the Customs Authorities' estimate of the population of Canton, the capital of the province, some 95 miles from Hongkong, being 24 millions.

Hongkong Harbour and need for Development.

In Hongkong we have a natural harbour of almost unrivalled excellence, the development of which has been left to private enterprise. Up to recent years the movement of commerce has been simple being attracted by natural advantages and little competition. It made little difference physically with the business of the Port whether quays or piers exist so long as there is deep water. Strategic water-fronts have been acquired and held by private enterprise but with the growth of business, increased cost of land and consequent increased cost for storage, increased cost of labour and the possibi- lity of deflection of trade, there has come an appreciation of the necessity for development on more modern lines.

Having come to the conclusion that it is highly desirable that Government should have the benefit of the advice of an expert Harbour Engineer on the question of the steps which ought to be taken to improve the Harbour, His Excellency, the Governor, addressed a despatch on the subject to the Secretary of State for the Colonies on the 5th of March, 1920. His Excellency considered that the prospects of linking up the Kowloon-Canton and the Canton-Hankow Railways appeared then to be favourable and that there was some hope that the following few years may see through communication established with the North of China; and that when this has been effected, Kowloon will become a very important railway terminus. The question of laying out of the necessary wharves and quays he considered to be one of importance in regard to which he considered it very desirable to have expert advice. Apart from this he referred to the probability of a considerable increase in size of the ocean-going steamers which will call at this port and decided that it is important that all possible steps should be taken to place the port of Hongkong in a position to deal satisfactorily with any new developments.

In their report dated May 1920, the Shipping and Ship-building Sub-Committee of the Economic Resources Committee, refer to the question of Harbour Improvements as a matter of the utmost importance to the Colony and state that the idea held by those most vitally concerned is, that the harbour is the Colony's only asset and that the Government should not play with improvements suggested by amateurs. They main-

tain that expert advice and properly constituted Port Authorities are required as there is alway a tendency at other places in China to lay out scientifically constructed harbours and that the matter of Harbour Improvements in Hongkong should be thoroughly inves- tigated, in order that the Colony may prepare itself for all possible developments. It considered dredging on a substantial scale to be essential and suggested dredging off Kowloon Point, at the end of the Northern and Central fairways,-the latter to Sulphur Channel, and also considerable dredging on the North West fairway. Whilst additional Piers or Jetties might with advantage add to the facilities for the handling of cargo, it considered that the Harbour problem is of the utmost importance to the Colony and that it should not be dealt with piece-meal but as a whole.

In consequence, the late Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice, C.M.G., M.Inst.C.E., &c., partner in the firm of Messrs. Coode, Fitzmaurice, Wilson & Mitchell, MM.Inst.C.E., Consulting Engineers to the Crown Agents, hereinafter referred to as :-the Consulting Engi- neers, arrived in the Colony in November, 1920.

The matters on which his firm's advice was sought were:-

(1) Improvements of the Harbour generally.

(2) The provision of Wharves and Warehouses provided with railway com-

munication.

(3) Improvement of the Mongkoktsui Harbour of Refuge.

(4) The question of dredging plant generally; the re-fitting of the Dredger

"St. Enoch" being considered in this connection.

(5) The best means of providing facilities opposite Statue Square for landing

from or embarking on launches and small craft generally.

During his visit Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice made investigation of the method of carry- ing on the business of the Port, and obtained a great deal of information as to the conditions of weather, tides, currents, &c.; the facilities available for supply of materials such as cement, stone, sand, timber, &c.; the supply of labour available, the rates of pay, the cost of work carried out by sub-contract, &c.; and the facilities available for cons- truction and repair of floating plant. Having come to the same conclusion as Mr. Chatham, (late Director of Public Works) and myself, that, so far as wharves provided with railway communication was concerned, Hung Hom Bay was the most suitable site, Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice left instructions with me to obtain additional information to that then obtained of the harbour bottom at Hung Hom Bay and Tai Wan by soundings, borings and prickings and also additional current observations in the vicinity of these localities. The amount of information sought was so extensive that additional staff had to be engaged for this purpose and it was not until November, 1922, that the last instal- ment of the information required was presented for despatch to the Consulting Engi-

neers.

Having received sufficient information to enable them to report on the main works, they presented through the Crown Agents for the Colonies their report dated 24th November, 1922.

The Consulting Engineers have adhered strictly to the terms of reference which did not require them to deal with anything, but engineering issues. In consequence, their report practically resolves itself into one dealing with the construction of the jetties referred to.

They recommend the carrying out of the scheme in two sections, the first embracing the construction of Jetties Nos. 1 and 2 which they estimate at

As the cost of any works carried out will be paid in the currency of the Colony and the costs of alternative works recommended later in this report are estimated in Hong- kong dollars, it will be convenient for the purpose of comparison to convert the foregoing estimate. The Consulting Engineers do not state at what rate of exchange their estimated cost in sterling was based, but, it is reasonable to assume that the rate of exchange adopted was 2/6 to the Hongkong dollar.

16

The average rate of exchange for the months June 1922 to November 1922 varied between a maximum of 2/7d. to a minimum of 2/4 d. the average for these 6 months being 2/6ğd. £1,247,000 @ 2/6 is equivalent to an estimated cost of $9,976,000; i.e. a total length of 2,600 feet of steamer berthage providing a depth of 37 feet of water at L.W.O.S.T. and suitable for large ocean-going steamers, with the necessary accommoda- tion for Junks and other small craft, they consider, can be constructed at a cost of $9,976,000. Apportioning this sum over the length of steamer berthage, it is equivalent to a unit cost of $3,837 per lineal foot. This estimate does not include for the cost of providing warehouses, roadways, railway lines, water supply, lighting, motive power nor for the cost of any handling facilities, such as capstans, cranes, conveyors, &c. No accommodation is provided for coal or oil storage or bunkering and no shelter for craft.

Report referred to Chambers of Commerce.

In May 1923 the report was referred to the Chambers of Commerce for their consideration. At representative meetings of the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce Committees held during the months June to September 1923, the whole question was discussed "with a pleasing breadth of view shewing a ready apprehension. of present and future requirements and full realization of the difficulties and with the will to overcome them openly and public spiritedly". It so happened that, in the period when discussions took place, the Colony experienced the effects of one of the strongest typhoon gales on record. Naturally, the question uppermost in the mind of members of the Chamber's Committee was the protection of craft.

An alternative scheme propounded by Captain W. Davison, Marine Superintendent at Hongkong of the Canadian Pacific Railway Co. and a colleague, Captain Robinson, for a wet dock at Kowloon Point was submitted by them to the Chamber for its con- sideration.

The question of the provision by Government of wharfage at North Point and Kennedy Town was also discussed but as the requirements of the trade necessitating provision of wharfage in these localities had not been investigated and, in consequence, no comprehensive scheme of development had been decided, the Chamber's discussions were of an exploratory nature. It was well held, however, that the present system of mooring in the stream with overside discharge of cargo into Junks is uneconomical; it entails too many handlings of goods adding to their cost.

In the end it was decided (on the recommendation of Mr. Fletcher, acting Colonial Secretary), to postpone further discussion pending the submission of certain technical questions to me, on my return to the Colony. In his speech on the Budget debate on the 4th of October, 1923, His Excellency the Governor is reported to have said:-

"The Report of the Consulting Engineers has been referred to the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce and they wish to put certain questions to the Harbour Engineer (on his return from leave) of which perhaps the most important is the practicability of laying out new wharves in the form of a wet dock in which large steamers could shelter during typhoon weather".

In February of this year, Mr. Robert Sutherland presented to the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce a communication accompanied by drawings illustrating a Scheme for the establishment of a Passenger Depôt on the Island side of the Harbour somewhere in the vicinity of Des Voeux Road. Mr. Sutherland's memorandum was forwarded by the Chamber to Government early in March with a request that the proposals be considered in connection with Port Developments. The Chamber approved the proposals in principle, and, having due regard to general conditions affecting shipping, stated that it would welcome the practical development of such a scheme. On 26th March I received instructions to consider Mr. Sutherland's proposals.

With regard to the Schemes proposed other than that of the Consulting Engineers'

Captain Davison's proposal for a wet dock at Kowloon Point.

There is much to commend this proposal from the point of view of shelter. Whilst, in my opinion, it would be possible to provide moorings sufficiently strong to hold large ocean-going steamers berthed alongside the inner side of the breakwater arm during typhoon gales, I am unable to say that a breakwater in this position will provide sufficient shelter that the effect of typhoon winds may not cause damage to ships or the quay wall alongside which they may be moored. In my opinion, vessels within the enclosed area could not lie with safety alongside the existing piers of the Wharf and Godown Co. during typhoon gales. Having regard to shelter only, the breakwater would be ineffective until wholly completed: To construct say a half of the length of the breakwater as a first section of the scheme would be to provide a trap for any vessel which ventured to shelter behind it during a typhoon which may pass near and to the north of the Colony, as typhoons in this position induce gales from a westerly direction.

115

It will be recollected that for this same reason the Admiralty found it necessary, as a result of the typhoon in 1908, to extend the breakwater forming their coaling Camber in this vicinity.

As it is improbable that the Admiralty will give up their coaling camber or torpedo boat basin, the coming to grief of a vessel within the dock would not only prejudice the whole internal system but also the movement of Admiralty craft. Such a catastrophe might have serious consequences.

With regard to the effect of such a breakwater on the southern entrance of the Mongkoktsui Harbour of Refuge during typhoon gales from the west, the entrance would be prejudiced so seriously as to make it impossible for craft to enter.

From a commerical point of view, considering the necessity for free movement of merchandise by road, by rail and by small craft generally, I consider the proposal would not secure such efficiency as works, of a similar cost, designed on a somewhat different form. Evidently, Captain Davison sees Port Developments from the point of view of a mariner, viz. :—the safety of his ship.

Reclamation (and Wharfage) at North Point.

The Robert Dollar Steamship Company seeing the possibility of the development of Drawing this foreshore for shipping purposes, commenced negotiations through a local firm of No. 2. architects for an area adjoining the Hongkong Electric Co.'s property. So far as I am acquainted, the negotiations were somewhat protracted and in the meantime this steam- ship company found a suitable site for their business in Shanghai. The firm conducting these negotiations did not inform Government until almost the date of sale that their clients the Robert Dollar Steamship Co. had "dropped out" and that in their place a speculative Chinese builder who was intent on reclaiming the area and developing it for the construction of Chinese tenement houses was then their client. At this stage of the negotiations the matter was referred to me and Government was advised that the development of this foreshore should be considered more seriously with relation to the harbour itself than with the idea of making building land.

The sale of the areas now known as "Marine Lots Nos. 430 and 431" North Point could not be delayed pending the consideration and preparation of a scheme of develop- ment for North Point foreshore. Fortunately, the purchaser was Mr. Kwik Djoen Eng who foresaw the possibility of developing the site for shipping and is now constructing a quay wall aggregating 1,693 feet in length and providing a depth of 30 feet of water alongside at L.W.O.S.T. The works have been designed to conform with the Scheme of Development for this foreshore recommended later in this report.

The question as to the form of development to be adopted to the eastward of these lots and the type of quay walls or wharves to be constructed was referred to the Con- sulting Engineers. Whilst offering objections to reclamation of the foreshore in question, they admit that such a scheme of reclamation and wharfage as that proposed for North Point is practicable but consider it would be best to leave the foreshore as it is at present. They were of the opinion that "it would be very inadvisable to divide forces and funds in attempting to construct a limited length of deep water quay in this position rather than concentrate upon Hung Hom Bay where the possibilities of development and exten- sion are infinitely superior'

Reclamation (and Wharfage) at Kennedy Town.

This scheme was likewise subordinated to the consideration of land values during Drawing the recent land boom. Although the necessity of providing wharfage at Kennedy Town No. 2. had not been ascertained, a line of wharfage was shewn to indicate the possibility of construction from an engineering point of view. As recommendations for the develop- ment of this foreshore are contained in this report, I need make no further comment on this sketch scheme which after all can only be considered of a tentative nature.

Mr. Sutherland's Scheme for a Passenger Depôt at Victoria.

The underlying principle of this proposal is the control of river boat passenger traffic with a view to assisting the suppression of piracy, the Excise and Revenue Department in the searching of passengers and their baggage and the control of the spread of disease.

The scheme was discussed on the 15th July last in conference with the Hon. Mr. E. D. C. Wolfe (Captain Superintendent of Police), the Hon. Mr. A. E. Wood (Acting Secretary for Chinese Affairs), Mr. D. Lloyd (Superintendent of Imports and Exports), and Lieut.-Comdr. Hake (Acting Harbour Master).

It was ascertained that the scheme would not allow of any improvement on the present methods regulating the traffic concerned. Its introduction would meet with much opposition from Shipowners due to the fact that each steamer with cargo to load or unload would require to berth at least three times, thus requiring them to keep up steam in port for a much longer period than would otherwise be necessary. Due to the fact that the hours of departure and arrival of the vessels employed on the river trade are about the same time (11 p.m. to 4 a.m.) almost each steamer would require a separate berth. As the scheme holds no provision for dealing with cargo, the berths would thus be vacant for the greater part of the day. The scheme in proportion to its usefulness would therefore be very expensive. It was also ascertained that the search- ing of cargo is just as important as the searching of passengers and that a scheme is considered essential for their proper control. Recommendations are made later in this report.

Development of the Harbour Front in General.

The lines of development shewn edged pink on Drawing No. 2 were laid down by the Town Planning Committee in 1922 principally on the lines recommended by me subject to modification when the Consulting Engineers' report was received.

It was anticipated that as they had sought information as to the ownership of all lots on the Harbour frontage and the purpose for which they were being utilized and also informa- tion as to the trade of the Port they would deal with the question of its future lines of development.

COMMUNICATIONS, PRODUCTS AND INDUSTRIES OF SOUTH AND MIDDLE CHINA.

No. 1.

Before passing to detailed consideration of the present trade and of the develop- Drawing ments which will best serve the interests of the Port, it is necessary to consider the nature of the products and the industries and communications of South and Middle China.

In his despatch to the Secretary of State referred to on page No. 3, His Excellency refers to the prospects of the Kowloon-Canton and Canton-Hankow Railways being link- ed up in the near future, and the Consulting Engineers were called in to advise as to the best means of providing the necessary terminal wharves at Kowloon. Although numerous complaints had been received by Government of the high charges obtaining for the handling and storage of the commodities of the present trade and fears expressed on the possibility of its being deflected, the terms of reference to the Consulting Engineers subordinated the consideration of the needs of the present trade of the Port to a railway which is only partly constructed and which in China's unsettled state is unlikely to be completed for many years to come. The question of Port Developments has in my opinion been considered from a wrong premise.

Railway Communication.

At present there exists a single line railway from Kowloon to Tai Sha Tau, Canton, a distance of about 112 miles. The Canton-Hankow Railway commences from Wong Sha, Canton some 6 miles distant from Tai Sha Tau and is constructed as a single line as far as Shiuchow some 125 miles distant from Canton. A length of about 230 miles has yet to be constructed to a point about 50 miles south of Changsha before single line through communication from Canton to North China can be established. Moreover, as far as I have been able to ascertain all railway bridges north of Canton are in a very bad state of repair, so that until considerable expense has also been incurred in the recon- struction of existing works, bulk cargoes such as coal, ore, &c., cannot be conveyed from the North by rail to Canton; and certainly not to Hongkong unless the line from Wong Sha to Tai Sha Tau is constructed, thus connecting the two lines and establishing direct communication from Kowloon to North China.

Let it be supposed that through railway communication to North China is estab- lished. What will then be the situation so far as economic transport by rail to Hong- kong versus by water via the Tung Ting Lake and the Yangtsze to Shanghai? If, for the moment, the transport of perishables and very valuable goods which require maximum expedition be disregarded and the total of transport from the interior of Middle and South China to foreign destinations be considered as the primary factor controlling the export and import movement of tonnage, it will be found,- on the reasonably correct average assumption, based on the rail and water-borne trade in America at the beginning of the Great War that one mile of rail haul is equal to 4 miles of water haul and making due allowance for transhipment at Hankow,-that the "Economic Divide" is somewhere in the vicinity of Hengchow (Hengyang). In this connection it may be of interest to note that in May, 1923, the freight on grain from New York to Liverpool was less than 5d. per cwt. this may be compared with the railway rate from Liverpool to London for the same article of 1/4d. per cwt. Of course, many other factors enter into this question such as mobile equipment, transhipment machinery at the intermediate points of hand- ling and at the Ports or "Gateways", warehousing facilities, transhipment costs and rapid turn-round for vessels in Port, frequent and definite marine sailings at the terminal ports requiring well-balanced port traffic in and out. The most important factors, however, are the charges by rail, by water, terminal and overseas. The "Economic Divide" referred to is based on total transport only. In July of this year, at a dinner given at at the British Empire Exhibition (Wembley) by the Commissioners of the Hongkong Section, Sir John Jordan is reported as having said: "It is on the extension of the ailways in South and Central China that Hongkong may justly build many hopes. When the line from Canton is through to Hankow, Hongkong, in conjunction with Canton, will become the great outlet for the produce of all China south of the Yangtsze”. In my opinion, there is no likelihood whatever of goods from beyond Changsha coming to Hongkong by rail. They will continue to pass through the Tung Ting Lake to the

120

Yangtsze, there being navigable channels in this lake area, during the winter months, when the least depth of water is about 4' 6". This extreme shallow depth of water (experienced for a very short period in winter) will not in my opinion be sufficient cause alone to deflect goods,-apart from perishables,-by rail. The depth of water in the Yangtsze between Shanghai and Hankow is such that river steamboats are employed in the trade between these ports throughout the whole year. During part of the summer, coaster and ocean-going steamers are able to proceed to Hankow. At such times river steamboats are able to proceed to Changsha and the tugs and lighters,-which ordinarily carry on the trade between Hankow and Changsha,-are able to proceed as far as Heng- chow. At all other times, transhipment from barge to river steamer and vice versa takes place at Hankow.

Trade with Central China via the Pacific will, without doubt, be dealt with at Shang- hai. Whilst the railway would undoubtedly bring products to Hongkong for shipment to European countries, the question of developments necessary for the trade of the Port as at present carried on, is, in my opinion, of primary importance.

Mineral Products.

With regard to the products South of Changsha, there is little information available. Coal is mined in considerable quantities at Pingsiang, to which place a branch railway about 55 miles in length connects with the main line at Chuchow, some 20 iniles south from Changsha. The coal mined there, I understand, is absorbed by the Hankow Iron- works. In any case, it is improbable that it will come to Hongkong whilst coal can be obtained from Hongay in French Indo-China, Formosa, Japan and Chinwangtao, (North China).

On the Drawing referred to, which is copied from a map dated 1922 and edited by Sir Alexander Hosie, M.A., L.L.D., F.R.G.S., formerly H. B. M. Consul General, China, coal- fields are shewn to exist near Hengchow (Hengyang), again to the east of Shiuchow and also near the confluence of the Pei Kiang (North River) and the Kwei Kiang (West River) but as to their extent or the quality of the coal or indeed as to any of the minerals (viz. :--zinc, tip, arsenic, asbestos, silver, gold, copper, antimony and iron) indicated as existing in the south of the Hunan Province, I have been unable to ascertain that their recovery is of commercial importance. At present coal can be brought to Hong- kong from Chinwangtao or Hongay at a cost of about $3.50 per ton including loading charges. Based on the present transport charges and on condition that there will be sufficient return traffic, it is estimated that for the same sum at which coal can be loaded at the mines, shipped at Chinwangtao and brought to Hongkong, coal could be loaded and brought by rail to Hongkong from a point about 400 miles distant or near Hengchow. Coal mined in the neighbourhood of Canton or as far north as Yingtak will undoubtedly be water-borne. There therefore remains the area between Yingtak and Hengchow to be served by the railway. From the information available, it would seem that there is little likelihood of the importation of coal and ores from this district in which case there is no necessity at present for considering developments to meet a trade in mineral pro- ducts: But, by all means reserve an area of the harbour front for dealing with any future possibilities in this direction.

Agricultural Products.

With regard to agricultural products south of Changsha and near the railway, there are indicated on the drawing or map: tea, and tea-oil, ramie grass or fibre, tobacco, hemp, groundnuts, sugar and wheat. The product indicated to be of greatest predo- minance is tea, grown in the centre of the province of Hunan. With regard to this commodity, it must be borne in mind that, due to competition from India and Ceylon, China has lost the predominant position which she once held in the tea trade and although spasmodic attempts have been made from time to time to recover it, they so far have proved hopeless against India and Ceylon's more scientific methods of preparation. At present, the products of cultivation in the areas in question, to a great extent are consumed locally. Although the Chinese peoples are very conservative clinging tenaciously, to established methods and customs, there are many signs that they are now realizing the advantages of western inventions and there is no doubt that in time their present methods will give way to more intensive cultivation on scientific lines and to the preparation of the products in competition with other markets.

121

Industries.

The manufacture of silk filatures, porcelain, wood and ivory carvings, furniture, grass mats, paper and embroideries constitute the chief industries south of the Economic Divide". With the exception of silk, these articles of industry are not likely to affect, appreciably, the export trade of the Port.

66

Until railway communication with Changsha is established and there are signs of the necessary feeder lines and good roads being constructed, I submit there will be no financial justification for Hongkong to embark on works solely on account of the Rail- way. However, if the shipping interests of the Port advise that wharfage for deep- draughted ocean-going steamers is necessary for the trade as at present carried on and will guarantee a reasonable return on the capital expenditure, then by all means provide the wharfage and let it be designed to provide for future railway communication.

ANALYSIS OF THE TRADE OF THE PORT.

Ma

The Consulting Engineers recommend, to the exclusion of other parts of the Harbour, notably North Point, the construction of Jetties in Hung Hom Bay having a depth of water alongside of 37 feet at Low Water of Ordinary Spring Tides (L.W.O.S.Ť.). As the increase in the cost of constructing solid quay walls is out of all proportion to the additional depth provided, it is necessary to determine by analysis of the trade, the class of vessel for which such facilities are to be designed.

The trade returns of the Colony shew that articles imported and exported are of a very miscellaneous nature, being made up of about 650 items. It is impossible to deal with the list in its entirety for China now demands everything made and in use in more sophisticated countries as well as much that appeals only to the Chinese palate. Amongst the prin- cipal commodities handled are:-rice, sugar, wheat-floor, tea, nuts, fish and fishery products, Chinese medicines, ginseng, sandalwood, cotton piece goods, silk piece goods, hides, rattans, coal, oils, iron and steel, tin, &c.

With regard to import goods arriving by a steamer which gives overside delivery in the stream, they generally go into transit shed (the Bill of Lading covering 7 days' "free storage") unless they have been stowed specially for direct transhipment in which case the lighter or junk transports the cargo to the outgoing ships. Cargo received by consignees (commission agents or brokers) in the Colony is not exported in bulk to any extent but is traded to smaller dealers, yet brokers, who in turn dispose of it in small lots. Ordinarily, goods after importation pass through the hands of five or six grades of intermediate men before they eventually reach the consumer or are exported. The result is that export cargo is made up of goods collected in small lots from various points but due to the unsettled state of the neighbouring provinces the mode of transport is not quite normal at present. Whereas, ordinarily, à large amount of goods such as rice, coal, chemicals, &c., go to Canton and as far as Wuchow on the West River by junk or lighter, it now happens that the greater part of the trade with Canton and West River ports is transported by river steamer; flour being damaged easily, is consigned, usually by river steamer. Due to the difference between the native and Maritime Customs' taxes, the cost of merchandise exported by native craft is much less than if carried by British or other ships foreign to China. Here enters the question of time but to the great mass of the Chinese its value is unknown. Junks are thus in a very favoured position to compete against river steamers for trade to and from riverine ports.

Diagrams Nos. 1 and 2 have been drawn up to illustrate the trade of the Port and to determine the requirements for handling it most economically.

Diagram No. 1 serves to indicate the values of merchandise imported from and Diagram exported to the various countries with which commerce was interchanged during the No.1. year 1923; also the mode of transport as far as I have been able to ascertain. As no values, weights or particulars are on record of the numerous packages of cargo tran- shipped on through Bills of Lading, it is impossible to include consideration of it in this analysis. The diagram is incomplete in that the Trade returns of the Colony do not include:

122

(a) Articles imported or exported by the Colonial Government or Naval and

Military Authorities.

(b) Cargo (except Ores and Tobacco) arriving from Ports in China south of

Swatow and from Macao.

(c) A portion of the cargo arriving from the Chinese ports of Swatow, Amoy

and Foochow ("Middle China").

(d) Passengers' luggage.

(e) Inward cargo landed into warehouses and left unclaimed on 31st December,

1923.

(f) Inward cargo delivered under " suspense" permits, documents not having

come to hand on or before 31st December, 1923.

(g) Ships' Stores.

Import and export movements of treasure have been excluded.

It will be noted that the Total Value of Imports of merchandise during 1923 amounted to £61,955,000. As far as I have been able to ascertain, the mode of trans- port of the merchandise is as represented in the diagram and may be summarised as follows:-

As already stated, it is impossible to deal with every article imported and/or exported. Out of the 639 Items which appear in the Trade Returns for 1923, I have selected the eight commodities of highest value, estimated their tonnages,-which after all is of primary importance from the view of Port Developments, and analysed their "flow".

From the foregoing tables, it will be seen that these eight commodities represent practically half the value of imports and exports of merchandise during 1923.

It will be observed that the commodities of greatest predominance in weight are rice, coal and raw sugar imported from French Indo-China, Siam, Japan, Korea and

125

Formosa and Netherlands East Indies and except for raw sugar which is refined in the Colony and exported principally to North China, of the other two commodities:—rice is almost wholly exported to South China and coal partly to South China but delivered mostly to ships in bunkers.

The production of rice in China being insufficient to feed the rice-eating population, it has to be supplemented by imports mainly from French Indo-China, Siam and Burmah: Hence the reason for the very large trade in this commodity of which in 1923 the amount imported weighed 1,381,750 tons and represented 22.40% of the Total Value of Imports. Of this amount, 1,223,430 Tons representing 20.68% of the Total Value of Exports were exported, mainly to South China.

.

The mode of transport of the eight commodities under consideration as far as can be ascertained was as follows:-

Any of these eight articles of trade when imported are likely to form the greater bulk of the ship's cargo consigned to Hongkong, and as they are transported in bags, cases, or bales of more or less uniform size (in the case of coal and fuel oil "in bulk") it is possible to obtain by such means as mechanical conveyors a continuous stream of discharge movement from a ship alongside a quay wall to the transit shed, storage warehouse or dump; in the case of oil by pipe-line to the oil Tanks. The degree of expedition and economy in handling which it is possible to obtain in the transport of such a commodity as rice,--a necessity of life to the Chinese, and which alone represents over 20% of the Value of the Import and Export Trade of the Port, I submit, justifies this trade being considered of primary importance in any schemes of Port Developments.

With regard to the size of ocean-going steamers for which accommodation should be provided, it must be borne in mind that for vessels on the Pacific run, Hongkong is their terminal Port and for vessels arriving from Suez, they travel as far as Japan and do not generally enter or clear Hongkong on their outward or homeward journeys with full cargoes, and are therefore not loaded down to their maximum draught.

CONSIDERATION OF THE PROBABLE INCREASE IN THE DRAUGHT OF

OCEAN-GOING STEAMERS.

As Hongkong is served both by the Suez and Panama Canals, it is necessary to consider carefully their present depths and projected improvements, and also the existing and projected shipping accommodation at Shanghai, Japan and at Ports on the Pacific coast of Canada and America, bearing in mind the statement made in the preceding paragraph.

Suez and Panama Canals.

In a communication to the International Congress of Navigation held in London in July, 1923, Ed. Quellennec, Esq., Technical Adviser to the Suez Canal Co., states with regard to the draft of ships successively allowed in the past and foreseen for the future in the Suez Canal:---

"The Statistics of the Company show that while up to 1906 when ships with a draft of 27 feet were allowed to transit, shipping was kept waiting for Canal Improvements; this is no longer the case since then and at present the number of ships ready to make full use of the facilities offered (viz. :- 31 feet draught) is practically negligible.

During 1921 and 1922, when the draught allowed was increased from 29 feet to 30 and to 31 feet respectively, only 6 and 5 ships during these years, respectively, made use of the extra depths; i.e. one per thousand of the total number of passages.

Generally speaking, the number of ships of great draught is still very small; for instance, in 1922 ships with a draught above 28 feet made only 113 passages or 2.6% of the total number of passages. Nevertheless the Suez Canal Co. keeps on improving the canal without interruption: A new increase of one foot, bringing up to 32 feet the authorized draught, is expected for the beginning of 1924 and after completion of the 1912 programme,-interrupted by the Great War, that is in 1925 the transit of ships with a draught of 33 feet might be allowed.

This much for the near future: Then the 1921 programme, the works of which have already been started by the Company, will allow when com- pleted the increase of the authorized draught to 35 feet and even to 36 feet if needed.

The Suez Canal will then be in a better position than the Panama Canal since 36 feet in the former is nearly equivalent to 37 feet in the latter, where ships travelling in fresh water sink deeper than in salt water. Moreover a draught of more than 37 feet would leave insufficient margin between 37 feet and 40 feet the total depth in the Panama Canal".

With regard to the tonnage statistics of the Suez Canal Co. he states:-

"On the whole, ships measuring less than 6,000 tons gross are decreasing in number while those above 6,000 tons are increasing but the increase is practically negligible for merchant ships above 12,000 tons.

The number of ships of very large tonnage is still very limited; in 1922 only 5 ships measuring more than 16,000 tons have transited the Suez Canal, one of them being the British man-of-war Renown. Considering that the Canal can receive ships with a draught of 31 feet, that in 1922 no ships made use of this facility; that also in 1922 there were only 29 pass- ages with more than 29 feet draught and 113 passages with more than 28 feet draught, it is evident that the Suez Canal to-day is in no way a limita- tion to the expansion of shipbuilding ".

XIIIth. International Congress of Navigation, London 1923.

As deep draughted ships necessitate a very large capital outlay at ports to accom- modate them in comparison with ships of moderate draught, the question was considered by the International Congress of Navigation with the view to either justifying or condemning the policy of building ships of great draught, solely with regard to the economical running of these ships without taking into consideration the capital cost of providing wharfage to accommodate them at all their ports of call.

The conclusions arrived at were:-

1. That with regard to the probable future dimensions of ships, there is a tendency for economic reasons connected only with the cost of running, to a general increase in the draught, but that, although the percentage of ships drawing 30 feet and over is likely to be greater, this increase will be limited by the leading dimensions of certain marine waterways and the principal harbours of the world, which should tend to check this increase in draught.

2. That there will be an increase in the average tonnage more especially in that of ships from 5,000 tons to 8,000 tons but not in the tonnage of the largest pre-war ships, in the very near future.

3. That the accommodation to be provided for ships should be guided by considerations of true economy and that against any anticipated saving in the cost of running a ship due to increased draught, the additional expenditure entailed at all Ports at which such vessels will trade

should be taken into account *

*

*

*

4. That the provision of the facilities for the rapid and economical despatch of goods on arrival at a Port is as important as the provision of deep water quays, &c.

5.

*

*

*

6.

*

*

7. That except for the Atlantic service it is considered that when everything is taken into account, it will be difficult to justify the necessity for a depth of water at the quay side of more than 35 feet at L.W.O.S.T. for many years to come; while a Port providing 30 feet of water at L.W.O.S.T. would be considered a first-class port.

8. That each nation should make an exhaustive study by a committee of various interests concerned, viz:-Shipbuilders, Ship-owners, Dock Authorities, Dock Engineers, and Railway Administrations, and that they be instructed to consider the question of establishing systematic research in the whole subject of economic dimensions of ships and docks as the want of co-ordination in the past seems to have prevented the develop- ment of Ports and Ships on economic lines.

The matter was referred to the next Congress.

Depths of water available at Shanghai and at ports in Japan and on the Pacific coast of Canada and United States of America.

With regard to the Port of Shanghai, ports in Japan and on the Pacific coast of Canada and the U.S.A., the following table gives the minimum depths of water in their approach channels and the maximum depths available at "Open Quays"; and also projected depths.

The foregoing information would indicate that ships with a draught of more than 34 feet are not likely to frequent the port for many years to come. Quay Walls to accom- modate vessels drawing 34 feet will require to have 36 feet depth of water alongside at L.W.O.S.T.

The Consulting Engineers in their Scheme at Hung Hom Bay recommend that the maximum depth of 37 feet at L.W.O.S.T. be provided at all quays. One would not mind providing any maximum at every quay if there is sufficient percentage of ships to make full use of it but it is a very unattractive proposition to see the depth occupied occasionally and being the rest of its time used by ships of the coaster class, the present maximum draught of which vessels as already stated being 22'-6". The shipping. interests of the Port might be satisfied that any works provided, conform to a reasonable ideal if at some part or parts of the scheme of development, provision is made to accom-- modate vessels loaded to a draught of 34 feet at the time of L.W.O.S.T.

Taking into account the possibility of improvement of these ports with which coaster-borne merchandise is interchanged, I consider that any wharfage accommodation for the coaster-steamer should provide a depth of 30 feet of water alongside the quay walls at L.W.O.S.T. This will accommodate vessels drawing 28 feet of water.

CONSIDERATION OF THE DRAUGHT OF RIVER STEAMBOATS, JUNKS AND BARGES.

River Steamboats.

The maximum draught to which vessels, trading with riverine ports, may load at present is 14 feet and at that draught they can only proceed up or down the Canton delta over the barriers at H.W.O.N.T. A project for the improvement of the "Front Reach" at Canton to a depth of 15 feet below the lowest low water is now under consideration. These improvements, if successful, will provide better facilities for steamers at Canton but will not allow for any increase in the draught of vessels. Although a depth of 16 feet of water at L.W.O.S.T. alongside any pier or wharf would be sufficient to accommodate river steamboats; due to the type of construction recommended later in this report, it will be more economical to provide a depth of 20 feet. This depth is also considered ample for vessels engaged in the Macao trade. In regard to the trade between Hongkong and such place as Kwongchowan, a depth of 15 feet should be sufficient.

Junks and Barges.

As far as I have been able to ascertain, the maximum draughts, loaded, of Junks and Barges are 11'-0" and 7'-6" respectively. In this connection it may be of interest. to note. that the largest lighter belonging to Messrs. Alfred Holt & Co. has a capacity of 500 tons

:

130

and when fully laden has a draught of only 7'-6". It is considered that a depth of water of 12 feet at L.W.O.S.T. alongside any wharfage designed to accommodate this class of craft will be sufficient.

DATUM.

The tide tables have been compiled from the result of the analysis of the tidal observations taken at the Kowloon tidal observatory, under the direction of Dr. Doberck, during the years 1887, 1888 and 1889. Since then, systematic observations have not been recorded. The tables for 1924 predict only 7 occasions when the tides may

be expected to ebb below the level adopted as Low Water of Ordinary Spring Tides (L.W.O.S.T.) and then only to a maximum of 0.33 foot. Whilst the wind force (apart from the greater effect of typhoons) may increase or diminish the rise or fall of the tide, the information necessary to determine the extent of such variation is not available. The level of Low Water of Extraordinary Spring Tides (L.W.E.S.T.) is about 1.03 feet below the level of L.W.O.S.T. and is the datum adopted by the Consulting Engineers. On the information available, I do not consider this datum a reasonable basis on which all shipping accommodation should be designed. Such a coincidence as a vessel arriving in the port at the hour of L.W.E.S.T., or when the wind has caused the tide to fall to an abnormally low level, and, at the same time loaded to its maximum draught, does not justify, in my opinion, the extra cost of constructing all solid quay walls providing the extra depth between these two data, viz. :-one foot.

The datum to which all works rocommended in this report is therefore L.W.O.S.T. or Ordnance Datum, or 17'-10" below "Rifleman's" copper bolt on the N.W. corner of one of the storehouses in His Majesty's Dockyard, Hongkong.

HEIGHT OF QUAY WALLS.

From the observations taken during the years 1887, 1888 and 1889, the level adopted as High Water of Extraordinary Spring Tides (H.W.E.S.T.) is 7.70 feet above L.W.O.S.T. During these three years the highest water level recorded was 8.55 feet above datum. The effect of a typhoon is to raise the level of the sea but to what extent the effect produced is felt within the harbour there is little information available. As 8 a.m. (the hour of high water) on the 20th of September, 1922, a typhoon passed at a distance of about 270 miles and to the South of the Colony: It was then noticed that there was an abnormal rise in the level of the tide over that predicted, which was 7.19 feet above L.W.O.S.T., and observations were made. It was ascertained that the actual height of the tide was 10.05 feet above datum, being an increase of 2·86 feet.

In determining the height of the copes of quay walls, consideration must be given to the handling of cargo by vessels moored alongside. The construction of quay walls to such a level to prevent a certain amount of flooding of the wharves caused by the impact of waves against the face of the quay would increase the cost of handling cargo. I consider it would better to provide in the design of the transit sheds, precautions for the prevention of their flooding rather than increase the height of the quay walls beyond the level of 14.50 feet above L.W.O.S.T., which is an economic height for the handling of cargo.

TYPHOONS.

The records of the Royal Observatory, Hongkong, for the years 1884 to 1923 shew that, in that period of 40 years, 60 typhoon gales were experienced in the Colony. particulars of them may be summarised as follows:-

With the exception of the typhoon gale experienced on the 18th of September, 1906, there is no record of winds of typhoon force blowing from the South. It would appear therefore that, in any system of docks to be provided, a Southerly direction requires least protection from typhoon gales.

COST AS AFFECTING THE PROVISION OF WHARFAGE.

The existing berthage in the harbour is unsuitable in design to allow of the most economical handling of cargo being obtained. Berthage provided with transit sheds at the back of the wharf road, although more expensive to construct, is the more suitable design in that it secures more rapid expedition for shipping, less dependence on unskill- ed labour, less damage to goods and less actual cost for the transport of goods between ship and shed. The advantage of this form of berthage,-taking into account its higher cost of construction,-will be found to be the more economical and has therefore been adopted.

In the carrying out of any of the schemes of wharfage recommended later in this report, areas of reclamation will be formed. However, as the market value of any land formed will be much in excess of the actual cost of the filling material, it is therefore necessary to consider only the cost of providing a quay wall to allow steamers to berth.

That the cost of handling charges may not be increased by the provision of deep water berthage, it is necessary that the return on the capital expense involved in the construction of such berthage should not exceed the cost of taking delivery of cargo from ships anchored in the stream and conveying it ashore through the medium of junks and barges. Whilst it will be admitted that the cost of discharging a ton of cargo into sheds from a ship berthed alongside would be somewhat less than the cost of handling the same weight of cargo under the present conditions from a junk or lighter alongside a praya wall, I have assumed for the purpose of comparison the worse condition, viz.: that the cost in either case would be the same.

Assuming that maintenance charges on quay walls, including dredging, will amount to about 1% on the capital expenditure, that money is borrowed at 5% and a sinking fund of 1% is allowed for, which would redeem the cost in a period of about 36 years; then, about 7% return on the capital expenditure must be assured before embarking on

132

www.c

a scheme to provide the necessary quay walls. Provided vessels maintain a rate of working of 200 tons of cargo per annum per lineal foot of wharf,-which rate is well within the limits of actual practice, then to yield 7% return, it will be necessary to make a charge of 55 cents per ton on general cargo discharged at a quay wall having a depth of 34 feet of water alongside at L.W.O.S.T. The costs being so favourable as compared with the charges now levied for the transport of goods between steamers anchored in the stream and the shore, the expense of providing wharfage would appear to be justified.

ADVANTAGES OF WHARFAGE.

Whilst in calm weather the rate of discharge or loading of a vessel may not be increased as compared with the present method of discharging or loading in the stream, there can be no question as to the greater expedition which can be given to vessels loading or discharging goods at a quay wall during the typhoon season. The financial loss to shipowners, junk and lighter people, caused year by year through delays conse- quent upon typhoon weather and more especially the fear of same must be enormous.

The advantages of berthing a vessel for discharge or loading at a wharf having shed accommodation alongside, compared with a vessel anchored in the stream may be enumerated as follows:-

1. Reduction in handling costs.

2. Quick turn-about of vessels in port more particularly during the typhoon season and because of being independent on the consignees for junks or lighters.

3. Less broaching of packages and less risk of pilferage.

4. Less frequent handling; (an important factor in the case of flour).

5. Less dependence on unskilled labour; (an important factor as borne out by

the strike of 1922).

6. Water and oil fuel can be obtained at less cost direct from pipes laid along

the quays.

7. Less road congestion as under present conditions the whole Praya is practically one long wharf occupied by junks and barges loading and discharging goods which are carried by streams of coolies through the thoroughfares of the city to the various godowns of the Chinese.

Conditions Affecting the Extent of Wharfage.

SHIPPING.

From such information as is available of the world's great seaports, considering Hongkong and Shanghai on their shipping and trade returns for the year 1923, London, Liverpool and Glasgow on their 1921 returns, New York, Manchester, Hull, Montreal, Bremen and New Orleans on their 1920 returns and Hamburg, Antwerp, and Marseilles on their pre-war figures, Hongkong ranks, commercially, fourth port in the Empire and tenth port in the world, while in the matter of tonnage it is the largest port in the world.

In regard to the amount of shipping entering and clearing at ports in the Colony, the following figures have been extracted from the Harbour Master's reports for the years. 1923 and 1913, the latter being the last normal year before the Great War. The percentage increase or decrease in the numbers and tonnage of the various classes of vessels during 1923 as compared with 1913 and the daily average number of vessels entering and clearing during both years have been added.

It is of interest to note, in regard to the junks engaged in foreign trade, entering and clearing at ports in the Colony, that of the tonnages recorded for the various years, during the period 1867 to 1923, the maximum tonnage was 3,700,000 tons approximate in 1883 and the minimum, 2,400,000 tons in 1911 (the year of the revolution in China), the tonnage recorded for the year 1867 being 2,700,000 tons. Thus the tonnage of junks engaged in foreign trade has been practically constant between the years 1867 and 1923. In the period 1913 to 1923 there has been a slight decrease on the average size of Junks.

Although the foregoing tables shew the increase or decrease in the numbers and tonnage of vessels and in this respect are instructive, it is not possible to deduce from such information as is published the requirements in regard to wharfage necessary to accommodate the shipping recorded. The daily average number of vessels of the ocean- going and coaster classes which entered the port during 1923 was about 17.3 whilst the daily average number of these vessels in port was 91. It is anticipated that the provision of additional berthage will reduce the latter figure but it is unlikely that it will ever be be much below 70.

FREE STORAGE.

A very important factor in the consideration of the extent of wharfage required is the length of time which consignees are granted "free occupancy "of transit sheds or open space for their goods. In Hongkong the period of "free storage" is 7 days whereas in the United Kingdom and in most foreign ports, the time is limited from 48 to 72 hours. To a great extent the period of "free occupancy "determines the quay and shed accom- modation which has to be provided and thus the capital to be spent and the charges

134

necessary to be levied on the trade. The fact that Shanghai gives 10 days, Singapore 7 days and Kobe 7 days, can not be adduced as argument in support of Hongkong continuing to grant 7 days' "free occupancy" of transit sheds or open space. The sheds at the wharves are "transit sheds fundamentally a covered protected working area, a space for temporary holding of freight for assorting and distribution but for hold- ing only a limited period of time after which, if not taken delivery of, should be trans- ferred to the "reservoir or storage warehouse so that the fullest possible use of the berth for steamer discharge may be obtained.

""

The great trouble experienced at most ports in regard to traffic is that, as a rule, far too long time is occupied in removing goods away from the sheds. Owing to transit space being fully occupied, it happens, frequently, that wharf owners are unable to berth a steamer for discharge. It is not that there is not room for her alongside the quay but there is not room in the shed for her cargo. The result is delay, resulting in loss of earning power for the vessel which ultimately increases the cost of goods, because after all, all charges for freight, &c., fall on the goods and have to be paid by the consumer. It is therefore necessary that a supporting warehouse be provided adjoining the transit or quay shed or storage space be given by the provision of upper floors to a transit shed, thus converting it into what may be termed a "transit warehouse"; but in any case the goods should be removed from transit space within a period of 72 hours.

EXTENT OF PRESENT ACCOMMODATION FOR SHIPPING.

Excluding any accommodation for colliers and oil tankers, the present accommoda- tion, including wharfage under construction in the port,-as affected by any of the schemes for development referred to later in this report, with the exception of the development scheme adjoining the Hongkong and Kowloon Wharf and Godown Co.'s property at Kowloon Point, will be as shewn in the following table :

PROVISION OF WHARFAGE.

For Ocean-going Steamers and Coasters.

Whilst it is impossible to determine with accuracy the number of vessels requiring wharfage accommodation, it may be safely assumed that of the estimated average daily number of vessels (viz. :-70) which will be in port, the number may be as high as 50%: i.e. berths for 35 vessels, not including for colliers and oil tankers. As far as can be ascertained from analysis of the trade of the port, and provided that too long a period of free occupancy of transit space does not limit the use of berths, at least 15 of these berths would be required to provide for steamers of the coaster class engaged in the rice, sugar and cotton yarn trades; and also to land wheat flour which is imported mostly from America. The remaining number of berths, viz.: 20, would be required to accommodate coasters engaged in other trades and ocean-going steamers as distinct from

coasters.

It would seem, therefore, that 17 additional berths may be required. Of that total 9 might be required for vessels engaged in the rice, sugar, cotton yarn and wheat trades, the remaining number, viz.: 8, being required by steamers of the ocean-going and coaster classes. Berths suitable for coaster and ocean-going steamers at present frequent- ing the port should be from 350 feet to 450 feet in length and from 550 feet to 650 feet in length respectively.

For River Steamboats.

With regard to accommodation required for river steamboats, the foregoing table of shipping indicates that the daily average number which entered the port during 1923 was about 11 and that since 1913, there has been a decrease of .65 in the daily average number. Of these 11 vessels, 8 are essentially passenger boats carrying cargo. As these passenger-cargo vessels should clear from their berths within 24 hours, and an application has already been received for a berth to accommodate vessels now being built, it would seem that, to accommodate this class of craft, a total of 9 berths are required. The maximum length of river passenger steamboats is 290 feet.

For Junks and Barges.

As a large proportion of the export trade, as at present carried on, is transported by junks and barges, provision should be made to accommodate such small craft in any scheme, whether it be designed for the accommodation of deep-draughted ocean-going vessels or steamers of the coaster class.

Conditions Affecting the Locations of Wharfage.

CONDITIONS AFFECTING THE LOCATION AND DESIGN OF SCHEMES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PORT,

Harbour Limits.

The official limits of Victoria Harbour are as follows:—

On the East:-A line drawn from a pillar marked "Harbour Limits" at North Point on the Island of Hongkong to the most easterly point of Kowloon City Pier.

On the West:-A line drawn from the westernmost point of the Island of Hongkong to the western side of Green Island, continued to the western point of Stonecutters' Island, thence to the north point of Stonecutters' Island and thence to the Harbour Department Station at Shamshuipo.

Scope of Report.

It is not possible to provide within the present "Harbour Limits" satisfactory schemes for the accommodation of the present shipping using the Harbour, having in view the necessity of expansion for a possible increase in trade. The harbour limits

Drawing No. 3.

Drawing No. 2.

136

should be extended to Lyemun on the East and the inclusion of Laichikok on the West as shewn by broken lines in green colour on Drawing No. 3, the area of the harbour so defined being about 17 square miles. Within these extended limits the present, and, as can be foreseen, the future needs of the Colony's shipping and trade can be accom- modated and developed with advantage. The Schemes, referred to later, for the development of the Port are located, therefore, within these extended limits.

General Considerations.

The determination of the locations where developments should take place and the form of their design has necessitated consideration of many factors such as:-

(a) Most convenient position for the various trades of the Port having regard

to frontage available.

(b) Suitable depth of water existing or susceptible of improvement at reasonable

cost by artificial means.

(c) Practicability of economic construction.

(d) Direction and intensity of prevailing winds.

(e) Direction and speed of tidal currents and their probable scouring or silting

effect by the construction of new works.

(f) Accessibility.

(g) Practicability of providing junk basins contiguous with transit sheds and

storage warehouses.

(h) Practicability of providing shelter whereby steamers and small craft need

not leave wharves or basins during a typhoon gale.

Hongkong (West Point).

LOCATIONS OF PRESENT TRADE.

Staple trades such as rice, sugar and flour are centered in the western part of Victoria and as they comprise a large percentage of the trade of the Port, it is necessary that consideration be given to the practicability of development in this section of the harbour front, where in addition, some business is carried on in general cargo and oil in

cases.

In 1922 the China Provident Loan & Mortgage Co. who carry on a large godown business in this vicinity applied for permission to erect piers in front of their lots and at the request of the Chairman of the Town Planning Committee, a joint report drawn up by the Superintendent of Crown Lands and myself was presented to and discussed by that Committee on 1st September, 1922. The principal recommendatious contained in that report were:

* *

*

*

"On the clear understanding that Government will exercise its rights in 1949 and take possession of all existing pier sites, the leasing of which may hinder the carrying out of such policy of harbour frontage development as may be decided upon, we consider it would be politic to allow applicants to construct piers or wharves opposite their properties. * Government should acquire properties behind the harbour front road between the Western Market and Queen's Street and from Whitty Street to Sands Street for the purpose of constructing a back road to which the Low Level Tramway Co.'s lines may be diverted. We consider a passenger tramway service on a frontage road of a width of 75 feet would incommode seriously the handling and transport of cargo".

The Town Planning Committee opposed the placing of any large piers along the front of Victoria for the accommodation of steamers of the coaster or ocean-going classes. To quote Mr. Fletcher :-

"This part of the town is getting less and less adapted for cargo handling. The place is full of tenement houses and restaurants and the roads already carry

{

137

their full complement of traffic. The land is constantly rising in value. It does not seem to be wise to add to the existing congestion by berthing large steamers in this area".

At a joint meeting of the General Committee and the Shipping Sub-Committee of the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce held on the 4th of September 1923, Mr. Fletcher (acting Colonial Secretary) is reported to have said :—

"The idea of making provision in West Point was abandoned for two reasons, the main one being that the district was already very congested. Handling difficulties would only be increased if the attempt were made to provide further wharfage facilities in a district in which traffic was already heavy. The area would be a jumble of goods wagons, trams and other traffic and it must be remembered that it was already densely populated. The alter- natives were either to remove godown business from that part of the town, giving it up to office purposes only, or take the risk of further congesting it, thereby sending up the value of land enormously and making cargo business impracticable on account of the enormous expense. Precise details had not been gone into thoroughly but Mr. Duncan assures me that the cost of developing the West Point district with wharves and transit godowns would be prohibitive. If the thing was to be done properly, it would be necessary to remove the tramway from the harbour front and so provide free access to godowns. An estimate was obtained by the Govern- ment for driving a short length of road at Western Market in order to join Des Voeux Road Central and Des Voeux Road West, and it was estimated that it would cost $4,500,000 merely to resume the land. If the scheme actually went forward, it would probably cost a much greater sum. If enormous costs were to be piled up in this way, it would be impossible to make any harbour scheme profitable".

Nevertheless, to decide definitely whether development in this area is practicable by reclamation and the erection of transit sheds and warehouses thereon so that the existing front road would become a back road and congestion be thereby relieved, I had 39 borings of the harbour bottom taken between the Western Market and Kennedy Town. The minimum and maximum depths reached were 63′ 7′′ and 118' 9", respectively, below the level of L.W.O.S.T., the minimum and maximum penetration mostly in very soft mud being 28' 0" and 83' 0", respectively, below the surface of the harbour bottom. The depths at which suitable foundations exist varies from 50 feet to 100 feet below L.W.O.S.T. The present depth of water in this vicinity is about 24 feet at L.W.O.S.T. ; having regard to future requirements this depth is not considered sufficient. Whilst it is susceptible of improvement, it would be necessary to dredge a channel from the China Merchants' Pier to Sulphur Channel; but such dredged channel, in my opinion, could only be maintained at a high recurrent cost. For the foregoing reasons, an economic and practicable scheme on this portion of the harbour front can not be designed. Provision for the economic handling of the rice, sugar and flour trades must therefore be made at another locality and if possible, on the Hongkong side of the harbour on which side business in these commodities is largely carried on.

Hongkong (Central)

The large passenger and cargo trade with riverine ports, local ferry services and an Drawing amount of local trade, are centred between the Western and Central Markets. These No. 2, trades should continue to be carried on in this locality which is best suited for them, and where economic provision can be constructed to accommodate the craft engaged and to better regulate the passenger traffic and improve the present congestion on Connaught Road Central.

Hongkong (Causeway Bay and Kennedy Town).

No. 2.

Under the present system of importing frozen meat, delivery is taken by junks and Drawing lighters from ships moored in the stream and conveyed to cold storage at Causeway Bay, Delay, exposure and frequent man handling of frozen meat should be eliminated as far as possible in its importation. No provision exists on the Hongkong side of the harbour whereby steamers, engaged in the importation, for slaughter, of live cattle, sheep and swine, can go alongside wharves convenient to lairage. The method at present adopted

Drawing No. 2.

Drawing No. 2.

Drawing No. 2.

138

is for vessels to moor in the stream, the animals being disembarked by junks and driven through the crowded thoroughfares to the slaughter houses which are so situated that fresh meat to be placed in cold storage has to be transported a considerable distance. The question of reconstructing and extending the Cattle Depôt on its present site at Kennedy Town has been under consideration and a scheme involving an expenditure of $565,000.00 has been recommended recently by the Public Works Department. It is considered that, in the scheme of Port Developments, berthage should be provided for vessels importing live cattle and frozen meat. Lairages, slaughter-house and cold storage should be provided in close proximity to the wharves: In this respect the above sum could be utilized in re-provisioning.

Hongkong (North Point).

The business at present carried on in this locality is confined mostly to handling oil in bulk. For this purpose the Asiatic Petroleum Company have provided a pier with pipe lines and also a small basin for the accommodation of oil carrying lighters. For the importation of fuel oil in bulk the design of the installation is satisfactory and it is. situated advantageously for the bunkering of vessels, having regard to the scheme for the development of North Point foreshore, (referred to later in this report).

Kowloon and Blackhead Points.

General cargo is largely dealt with at the piers of the Hongkong and Kowloon Wharf & Godown Co. and at Holt's Wharves. As these localities seem suitable for dealing with general cargo, any schemes for its more efficient handling may be centred in these neighbourhoods, there being no considerations which preclude development on economic lines.

Kowloon (Yaumati, Taikoktsui and Lai Chi Kok).

With the exception of that imported by the Admiralty, and by local industrial and shipping companies, coal is handled by lighters and temporary coal yards exist at many points on the harbour front. On completion of works now under construction the storage will be located at Yaumati and Lai Chi Kok, one berth being provided at the latter to enable colliers to give direct discharge to the storage ground there. The cost of hand- ling coal to and from Yaumati is expensive and Lai Chi Kok is distant from the shipping centre. Recommendations are therefore made, (later in this report), for the provision of up-to-date accommodation in localities more convenient to the shipping centre, which provision will allow of more economic bunkering of vessels than can be accomplished by the facilities at present existing and under construction.

On the Kowloon side of the harbour,-excluding consideration of the Admiralty's oil installation near Yaumati,-oil imported is discharged and stored at Taikoktsui, by the Asiatic Petroleum Company and at Lai Chi Kok, by the Standard Oil Company of New York. Although the designs of these installations are satisfactory for the economic discharge of oil fuel imported, they are too distant and at too low levels to enable econ- omic bunkering of ships from pipe lines connecting the installations and the wharves re- commended in the Hung Hom Bay and Kowloon Point schemes. As bunkering by lighters is costly, it is considered that, in connection with the schemes referred to, pro- vision should be made for an oil fuel installation in their vicinity.

Ferry Services.

The routes of the existing services and the points on the Hongkong and Kowloon sides of the harbour between which the ferries ply, are shewn on Drawing No. 2. With the exception of the Star Ferry boats, other ferries berth at Victoria at various points be- tween the Central Market and Eastern Street. To overcome as far as possible the dis- advantages of the present arrangements such as congestion on Connaught Road, difficulty of control and the crossing of ferry routes, recommendations are made later in this re- port for the provision of more satisfactory accommodation. With the exception of new provision to be made at the end of Jordan Road for vehicular ferries, it is not proposed to make recommendations in regard to new accommodation on the Kowloon side of the harbour or at Shaukiwan on the Hongkong side pending the completion of projected works.

TYPHOON SHELTER FOR SMALL CRAFT IN RELATION TO WHARFAGE.

No. 2.

The present method of handling cargo is largely dependent on junks and lighters Drawing which require to seek shelter in the Harbours of Refuge at Causeway Bay and Mongkok- tsui when typhoon warning signals are hoisted. It happens, invariably, that small craft do not return to work for some time after the signals have been lowered, thus causing great delay to shipping. Although the areas of these shelters are sufficient to accommo- date all small craft, it is considered that a very necessary provision in any scheme of wharfage would be shelter from typhoon weather for junks and barges in order that work may be continued as long as possible and be resumed as soon as weather conditions permit.

FACILITIES FOR SHIP REPAIR.

In regard to ship repair facilities in the Ports of the Colony, it is considered that the present accommodation together with that under construction and projected will meet the needs of shipping for many years to come. It is therefore not proposed to recommend the provision of any extension.

This concludes reference to the most important of many considerations which have determined the location, design and order of present importance of the Schemes of Port Development described in the following Section of this report.

SCHEMES OF DEVELOPMENT AND EXTENT OF WORKS

RECOMMENDED FOR IMMEDIATE CONSTRUCTION.

Schemes of Development and Extent of Works Recommended for Immediate Construction.

GENERAL.

Whilst, as already stated, it would seem that 17 additional berths might be required for the more economical handling of the import trade of the Port, the programme of Port Development works to be constructed by Government in the near future must necessarily be limited to the amount of berthage which there is no doubt would either become immediately remunerative or the return of the cost be assured by the disposal of land reclaimed in connection with its construction. Otherwise, to secure a return on the capital expense involved in the construction of berthage in excess of that taken up, would necessitate either the levying of higher charges for the use of that portion taken up or increased taxation on shipping. The latter may not only result in driving away existing trade but discourage new trade. The extent of the works recommended for immediate construction is therefore limited by these considerations.

The locations of the various Schemes of Development designed to meet the present Drawing and possible future needs of the shipping and trade of the Port are shewn on Drawing No 3. No. 3. With regard to the order of precedence of the construction of the individual schemes, the sections shewn coloured light pink cross-hatched darker pink, if required, may be proceeded with at any time. In the individual schemes the construction of the portions shewn coloured yellow should not be proceeded with until the sections shewn coloured pink have been completed, except the reclamation of the area shewn coloured yellow and cross-hatched pink, on Drawings Nos. 3, 8 and 9.

This report does not deal with the actual construction of railways on the wharves, the supply of cargo-handling equipment, electric power and light, or the provision of pipe lines on the wharves for water-supply and oil bunkering, as these items can be dealt with as occasion arises.

Roads.

For economic road transport, serviceable and adequate road communication is essential, and as it is probable that the growth of motor transport will increase very rapidly when new berthage is brought into operation, I therefore recommend that immediate consideration should be given to the strengthening, where necessary, of all roads required to carry heavy traffic. In order that it may not be necessary to close down any section of wharfage for road repairs and to obviate high maintenance costs, the design of the wharf roads will require special consideration. By the completion of works now under construction and those recommended in this report, it is considered that adequate road access will be provided to the new wharfage.

Warehouses.

With the exception of the structures referred to in the Hongkong Central and the Kennedy Town schemes, it is not proposed to make any recommendations with regard to warehouses as the type of each individual building to be erected is a matter which will require to be considered in connection with its particular use.

Description of Scheme.

NORTH POINT.

Nos 3.5

and 11.

As an economic and practical scheme cannot be designed at West Point for the Drawings handling of the trade now carried on there and at the same time relieve congestion on that section of the harbour front, a more suitable location has to be found. On the Island side of the harbour, it is considered that North Point foreshore is the only place. where not only suitable berthage can be constructed but also sufficient area of land can be provided at reasonable costs for the carrying on of this trade. With the exception of flour, the commodities handled at West Point are imported principally by coaster, so that the major portions of the works to be constructed at North Point should be design- ed to accommodate this class of vessel: i.e., a depth of 30 feet of water alongside quay walls at L.W.O.S.T. should be provided. As it is also proposed to accommodate the import trade in flour, a section of this scheme should be designed to allow ocean-going

144

steamers to berth alongside. In this connection it is considered that a depth of water of 34 feet at L.W.O.S.T. will be sufficient.

In regard to the accommodation required for coaster-steamers, lengths of quay wall aggregating 1,693 feet are now under construction by private enterprise. It will be seen from Drawing No. 5 that a further 3,000 feet length of quay wall is designed for the accommodation of this class of vessel making a total berthage for coaster-steamers, of 4,693 feet. In continuation of this accommodation, 1,500 feet length of berthage is designed for ocean-going steamers.

>>

27

The width of road between the face of the quay wall and the "transit warehouses is 35 feet. This is found to be a suitable width for the economic handling of cargo and is considered ample in view of the provision of a road 75 feet in width at the rear of the "transit warehouses which are 120 feet in width. The easterly section of this 75 feet road for a length of about 2,785 feet is margined by a basin 160 feet in width, having depths of water of 12 feet and 15 feet at L.W.O.S.T. for the accommodation of junks working cargo, launches and other small craft for the shelter of which during typhoon weather a protecting arm is provided. For the convenience of road transport a bascule bridge connects the two sides of the junk basin about the middle of its length. On the south-easterly side of this basin provision has been made for the repair of Government craft, for the storage of coal and firewood, and an area reserved for police and fire stations, Government stores and for housing excise officers and also men engaged in the repair depôt.

With regard to the layout of the land,-excluding areas reserved for "transit ware- houses" and open spaces; areas for the storage of coal and firewood; and for Govern- ment purposes; there are shewn areas marked "Storage Warehouses" and other areas shewn coloured pink and yellow which aggregate a total of about 830,400 square feet. Before any of the latter areas are alienated, special consideration should be given to the requirements of the trade for which this scheme is designed and the manner in which it may be conducted.

Summarized particulars of the North Point Scheme, including wharfage now under construction, but excluding provision for the repair of Government craft, and for the storage of coal and firewood, are as under :-

Type of Construction.

With regard to the actual construction and carrying out of the scheme, I recom- mend that the quay walls both for the accommodation of steamers and junks be constructed in blockwork founded on rubble mounds deposited in trenches dredged to depths at which suitable foundations exist. The blockwork construction should be brought up to the level of about 3 feet above L.W.O.S.T. and the wall completed in masonry faced with granite ashlar. To prevent damage to steamers moored alongside the quay, the face of the wall should be provided with wood fenders. The actual con- struction of the breakwater arm at the south-eastern extremity of the scheme should be carried out to a design somewhat similar to that of the breakwater at Mongkoktsui Harbour of Refuge.

A typical cross section of the scheme is shewn on Drawing No. 11.

Extent of Works recommended for immediate construction.

The extent of works recommended for immediate construction is that portion of the scheme shewn coloured pink on the drawings. The carrying out of this section will provide 1,500 feet length of berthage for coaster steamers and on the layout of the land as designed will provide areas for building and open storage aggregating about 784,450 square feet. Pending construction of the second section shewn coloured yellow on plan, it is proposed to protect the eastern boundary of the area shewn coloured pink by the rubble mound foundation and one side wall of a future nullah.

The estimated cost of constructing berthage accommodation, constructing portion of nullah works, reclaiming the area shewn coloured pink, and dredging (to a depth of 30 feet below L.W.O.S.T.) the area of approach channel shewn coloured light pink cross- hatched in red dashes, including 10 per cent for contingencies, is as follows:-

390,000.00

560,000.00

130,000.00

$ 3,280,000.00

This estimated cost, apportioned over the areas of land available as building sites and for open storage, aggregating about 784,450 square feet, amounts to $4.18 per square foot which is considered well within the market value of land in this locality.

HONGKONG CENTRAL.-(LOCAL PASSENGER & CARGO DEPOT, FERRY PIERS, &c.).

Description of Scheme.

The scheme which is shewn on Drawings Nos. 3, 8, 9 and 10 is designed to accom- modate the local passenger and cargo trade, ferry services, &c., and to satisfy the requirements for its better control and extends from near Douglas Street to the Western Market, over which length of about 2,960 feet of frontage economic construction is possible.

With regard to its design, it is proposed to reclaim about 150 feet seaward of the existing praya wall and from the new sea wall to project piers. The area reclaimed will provide for the accommodation required by the trades to be carried on under this scheme and allow for the widening from 75 feet to 124 feet of Connaught Road. At the eastern end of the scheme, it is proposed to accommodate the Eastern and Central Ferry Services and the handling of mails by the General Post Office. Six berths are provided for ferry boats, one of these berths being designed in the form of a dock for the use of boats engaged in the carrying of both passengers and vehicles. One berth is provided for the use of the G.P.O. At the western end of the scheme, it is proposed to accommodate the Western Ferry Services for which three berths are provided. By this arrangement the routes of ferry services will not pass through an area which is likely to be used extensively by other craft.

Drawings Nos. 3,8,9

and 10.

146

Adjoining the eastern ferry piers, provision is made to accommodate the present river passenger and cargo trade by the construction of five piers 300 feet in length, 40 feet in width and 200 feet apart, the width of the piers being divided by a close partition, giving each vessel a wharf about 20 feet wide. In order to provide for the better control of cargo, one storey transit sheds, 70 feet wide and of a length of 90 feet per berth, are arranged for its reception. In regard to the passenger trade, provision is made for a central booking office and waiting rooms on the ground floor, the passengers being subject to police and medical inspection on leaving the waiting rooms. The searching rooms are situated on the first floor. Passengers, after having passed through them, proceed along a passage-way over the top of the transit sheds and downstairs to the particular berth at which they wish to embark. In-coming passengers ascend to another passage-way which likewise passes over the transit sheds to the searching rooms. On leaving them, passengers pass down stairs for medical and police inspection and thence to a passage leading to the street. The design of the arrangements is such that in-coming and out-going passengers can be prevented from communicating with each other except when in the searching rooms. Passengers and cargo can also be separated entirely if the scheme is operated as arranged; viz. :-that the discharge of cargo should not be commenced until the passengers have entered the passage-ways leading to the searching rooms and the loading of cargo should cease before gates are opened to admit passengers to the piers from the passageways leading from the searching rooms.

Whatever decisions may be taken in regard to leasing out the accommodation, it is recommended that Government should control the arrangements for regulating the local passenger and cargo trade.

A considerable portion of the new frontage is reserved for public use, convenient access being given by roadways between the transit sheds.

To the west of the five piers referred to, a pier 160 feet long and 42 feet wide and warehouse and office accommodation on a space 140 feet long and 80 feet wide are arranged for the use of the Imports and Exports Department, adjoining which, a pier 160 feet long and 38 feet wide is arranged for the use of craft operated by the Harbour and Police Departments.

To provide for expansion in the local passenger and cargo trade, three piers of the same size together with similar arrangements as those already recommended for the carrying on of this trade have been laid out to the westward of the pier designed for the use of Harbour and Police Departments' craft. In continuation of this system of piers and adjoining the Western Ferry Services, a pier about 160 feet in length and 42 feet in width is recommended for the landing of building materials and an area 195 feet in length and 70 feet in width reserved on the new reclamation for their temporary storage. Provided the storage time is limited, strictly to that necessary to remove the materials to their destination, it is considered that this area will be sufficient.

Type of Construction.

In regard to the Eastern and Central Ferry Services' accommodation, the ferry berths which form the arms of the vehicular ferry boat basin should be constructed in re-inforced concrete, all other ferry boat berths and also that for Post Office launches being formed by quay walls, (similar to that recommended in the North Point Scheme), constructed in blackwork on a pell-meli rubble mound, the latter being founded by dredging to depths at which suitable foundations exist. The depths of water to be provided alongside quay walls should be 12 feet at L.W.O.S.T., with the exception of that for vehicular ferry boats which should be 15 feet. Selected filling material should be used to reclaim the area within these quay walls. Two storied buildings on this reclamation provide office and passenger waiting accommodation for the ferry services, the ground floor being reserved for 2nd and 3rd class passengers and the first floor for 1st class passengers. Provision is made for embarking and disembarking by double- decked ramps which will be raised and lowered by mechanical power according to the rise or fall of the tide. In the case of the vehicular ferry service ramp, the lower deck is 25 feet wide and provides a central passage-way 10 feet in width for vehicles, and two passage-ways each about 6 feet in width for passengers. In front of the building

147

ample area is reserved for the accommodation of road traffic. Opposite the Post Office berth an area is reserved for a shed in which mails may be handled. A sketch front elevation of the building and a type longitudinal section through the vehicular ferry ramp are shewn on Drawing No. 10.

In regard to the Western Ferry Services' accommodation, it is proposed to construct the berths in reinforced concrete, a rubble mound to the level of L.W.O.S.T. with a pitched slope superstructure being provided to protect the reclamation on which the berths abut. The arrangements providing for the passenger traffic are similar to those proposed for the Eastern and Central Ferry Services.

It is proposed to construct all piers, recommended in this scheme, in reinforced con- crete and to increase their stability and also that of the reinforced concrete work carried out at the ferry berths, by the deposition of pell-mell rubble around the piles, brought to a level of 20 feet below L.W.O.S.T. Due to the higher maintenance cost of reinforced concrete construction as compared with solid quay walls, the latter has been considered as an alternative type of construction; the much higher initial cost and the obstruction it would cause to the free flow of tidal currents preclude its adoption.

The carrying out of the reclamation should proceed continuously until completed, the type of construction for the new sea wall being similar to that of the existing wall on this frontage. The reinforced concrete piles to support the approaches to all piers should be driven before the work of depositing pell-mell rubble for the new sea wall founda- tions is commenced. Selected material should be used as filling for this reclamation.

A sketch elevation of the scheme fronting Connaught Road, together with cross sec- tions through searching room and "transit warehouse" and also a side elevation of one of the river-boat piers are shewn on Drawing No. 10.

Extent of Works recommended for immediate construction.

The sections of the scheme which it is recommended should be developed for im- mediate use are those shewn coloured pink on Drawings Nos. 3, 8 and 9.

The estimated cost of carrying out the works recommended including 10 per cent. for contingencies is as follows:-

VEHICULAR FERRY PIER AT JORDAN ROAD, KOWLOON.

Projected ferry Routes.

The projected routes for ferry services are shewn on Drawing No. 3, that of the combined passenger and vehicular service being between the new Eastern and Central Ferry Services, Hongkong, and the end of Jordan Road, Kowloon. The provision, at Jordan Road, of the accommodation shewn on Drawings Nos. 8 and 9 will serve the dis- trict now using the Yaumati ferry. The existing ferry pier at Public Square Street, Yaumati, will then become available for public purposes.

Description.

By the resumption of a portion of Kowloon Marine Lot No. 49 and reclaiming strips. of land about 80 feet wide to the south of and about 50 feet eastward,--at the end of, Jordan Road, sufficient area will be obtained for the requirements of the vehicular and passenger traffic. Two arms extending in a south-westerly direction form a basin with- in which the vehicular ferry boats will berth. Whilst the basins and ramps have been designed for boats 120 feet in length with a lower deck width of 45 feet to carry vehicles. and 2nd and 3rd class passengers and to carry 1st class passengers on the upper deck, the design can be modified to suit whatever size of boat that may be decided upon. The buildings, provision for embarking and disembarking, accommodation of road traffic, &c., are similar to that recommended in connection with this service on the Hongkong side.

Type of Construction.

The formation of the additional land required should be carried out as an ordinary type reclamation. The arms forming the basin should be constructed in reinforced con- crete, the piles over the base of the sea wall rubble mound being driven before pell-mell rubble is deposited. The deposition of pell-mell rubble around the piles, as recommend- ed previously, should extend over the whole length of the arms.

Extent of Works recommended for immediate construction.

It is recommended that the whole of the construction in connection with the Veli- cular Ferry Service at the end of Jordan Road should be proceeded with immediately.

The estimated cost of the works recommended including 10 per cent. for contingen- cies and including the resumption of a portion of K. M. L. No. 49 is as follows:- Resumption of about 15,000 square feet of K. M. L. No. 49 @

Description of Scheme.

To provide better facilities for the disembarking of cattle, sheep and swine imported for slaughter purposes, also convenient lairages for their reception, with slaughter house and cold storage in close proximity, &c., it is proposed to reclaim Kennedy Town foreshore for an average depth of about 200 feet and extending westward from Cadogan Street for a distance of about 2,470 feet; also to construct a wharf 350 feet in length. having a depth of 30 feet of water alongside at L.W.O.S.T. which is considered sufficient

کو

}

149

for any vessel engaged in importing animals for slaughter. A ramped berth 90 feet in length having a depth of 12 feet of water alongside at L.W.O.S.T. will accommodate the smaller craft engaged in this trade. A T-shaped pier extending seaward of the sea wall for a distance of about 70 feet, with a berthage length of about 100 feet and two mooring dolphins about 100 feet on either side are provided opposite the area reserved for cold storage for the delivery of frozen meat from ships. This amount of wharfage is consi- dered sufficient for the meat trade to be dealt with in this locality. A site of further wharfage is shewn on Drawing No. 6 should such be required in connection with the carrying on of any other business on this reclamation.

By carrying out this reclamation building areas of about 458,000 square feet to the north and about 107,250 square feet to the south of the new alignment of Jubilee Road become available for development. In regard to the former area which abuts on the new sea front, it is proposed to utilize the western portion for a Cattle Depôt, comprising lairages, slaughter-house, chill room, crematorium, offices, stores and Asiatic staff quarters; and also for a poultry-market, dogs' home and disinfecting station. Two storey lairages providing floor areas of about 300,000 square feet are recommended, which accommodation will provide for housing 1,750 head of cattle, 600 sheep and 3,000 swine. On the eastern portion, areas of about 83,600 square feet and about 16,500 square feet are reserved for cold storage and opium refinery, respectively. The remaining areas on the reclamation about 95,650 square feet and about 35,750 square feet, also the areas to the south of the New Jubilee Road become available for other purposes.

Type of Construction.

It is proposed to construct the 350 feet steamer berth and the 90 feet ramped berth in blockwork on rubble mounds founded by dredging to depths at which suitable founda- tions exist, the mounds being brought up to levels of 30 feet and 12 feet respectively below L.W.O.S.T. Due to the great depths at which suitable foundations exist on the eastern frontage of the reclamation, the construction of berthage in blockwork would be too costly. The T-shaped pier, dolphins and any other berthage required, should there- fore be carried out in reinforced concrete, the piles being driven before the pell-mell rubble,-to form the foundation of the sea wall,-is deposited. With the exception of those portions of the frontage where quay walls are to be constructed, it is proposed to protect the reclamation by the construction of an ordinary type sea wall founded on a rubble mound brought up to the level of L.W.O.S.T. By cutting back to form the new alignment of Jubilee Road and forming the areas shewn to the south of same, it is estimated that sufficient material will be obtained to fill in the area to be reclaimed.

A typical cross section of the scheme is shewn on Drawing No. 11.

Extent of Works recommended for immediate construction.

It is recommended that the whole of the works described and shewn coloured pink on Drawing No. 6 should be proceeded with immediately, with the exception of the re-inforced concrete wharf, shewn cross-hatched in pink, which should only be proceeded with if additional wharfage is required in this locality.

Description of Scheme.

In April, 1923, Messrs. Butterfield and Swire made application for additional berth- ing accommodation to the extent of 1,200 feet to the north of Messrs. Alfred Holt & Co.'s present wharfage. The south-west portion of the Scheme shewn coloured light pink and cross-hatched in darker pink on Drawings Nos. 3 and 4 will allow for extending, by 80 feet, the present berthage, making Holt's East Wharf 550 feet in length. Extending in a northerly direction, a length of 1,300 feet of additional wharfage, having a depth of 34 feet of water alongside at L.W.O.S.T., may be constructed and for the purpose of erecting "transit warehouses" contiguous with the wharfage, sufficient area of land can be provided by reclamation.

With regard to the principal portion of the scheme shewn coloured pink and yellow, it is proposed to reclaim areas adjoining the railway reclamation and to project from the new reclamation three jetties in an easterly direction. These jetties together with a quay wall protecting the northern area of new reclamation form a ship basin 1,200 feet long and 400 feet wide, having berthage 2,400 feet in length with a depth of 34 feet (or if required 36 feet) of water alongside at L.W.O.S.T. and two junk basins 160 feet wide, having berthage of about 4,240 feet in length, with a depth of 12 feet of water alongside. The Southern area of the new reclamation will be protected by a quay wall 1,200 feet in length with a depth of 34 feet of water, in continuation of which Jetty No. 1 having the same depth of water on its south side and 12 feet on its north side extends for a distance of 1,250 feet. The continuation of this jetty in a north-easterly direction provides on its south-east side 900 feet of berthage and on its north-west side

{

:

151

750 feet of berthage with a depth of 36 feet of water alongside. Jetty No. 4 projected in a south-easterly direction from the extremity of the quay wall protecting the northern area of new reclamation provides for 420 feet of berthage on its inner side and 500 feet of berthage on its outer side, having a depth of 30 feet of water alongside at L.W.O.S.T. Jetties Nos. 1 and 4 will protect the ship and junk basins from typhoon seas and afford excellent shelter for small craft. An opening 430 feet wide between the ends of these jetties forms an entrance to the basins. Drawing No. 4 illustrates tentative proposals for railway sidings and lines running on to the quays. The extent of area and depths to which dredging will require to be carried out are also shewn on this drawing. It is not considered that tidal currents will cause any difficulties to ships coming alongside or leaving the wharves proposed.

Whilst Hung Hom Bay, due to its sheltered position and depth of water in the approaches offers the best site on the harbour front for the provision of wharfage with which, if required,-railway communication can be readily given, the taking up of any berthage is not yet assured; and, as the cost of construction cannot be recovered by the disposal of land reclaimed in conection with the scheme, it is proposed to only indicate the order in which instalments of the works may be carried out and to give Estimates of their cost.

In order to provide for the discharge and storage of imported coal and oil fuel, it is proposed to utilize the north-east corner of Hung Hom Bay shewn coloured light pink cross-hatched darker pink on Drawings Nos. 3 and 4 and a portion of higher ground to the north of same, the site of which is indicated on Drawing No. 3, and will be used for the erection of oil tanks.

In regard to the arrangements for the handling and storage of coal, it is proposed to provide storage areas on each side and to the north of a basin 250 feet wide and of an average length of about 562 feet, having berthage of about 1,375 feet and to be dredged to a minimum depth of 12 feet at L.W.O.S.T. Convenient access is given by road to these storage areas. For berthing colliers, two piers, each 350 feet long, 40 feet wide and 250 feet apart, having a depth of 30 feet of water alongside, are provided, one on either side of the entrance to the coaling basin. The design is suitable for the erection. of mechanical conveyors whereby coal may be delivered direct from colliers to the storage areas or loaded to craft at the piers or in the basin, thus providing for the more economical handling of this trade. The storage area will accommodate 75,000 tons of coal which, excluding the stocks of local industrial and shipping companies, is approx- imately the normal amount stored in the Colony; and in view of the fact that the percentage of ships using oil fuel is increasing, it is considered that this storage capacity will be sufficient unless the recovery of coal in South China is found to be of commercial importance, in which case additional provision will be required. For this purpose, the area of Tai Wan shewn coloured yellow and marked "Proposed future Reclamation" on Drawings Nos. 3 and 4 should be reserved, there being no considera- tions which preclude economic development of the sea bed adjoining this area.

It is anticipated that sufficient accommodation can also be provided in this locality to deal with any ores that may possibly be imported by rail. The necessary land should be reserved for railway communication. A line proposed by the Town Planning Committee is shewn on Drawings Nos. 3 and 4.

A strip of land 15 feet wide alongside the 60 feet road to the west of the coal storage areas is reserved for pipe lines connecting with the oil storage tanks. At the seaward end, the pipes will be laid on a pier 300 feet long and 40 feet wide, having a depth of 30 feet of water alongside. This pier together with a dolphin provides berthing accommodation for two oil tankers, which may discharge the oil fuel direct to the storage The proximity and elevation of the latter should admit of the satisfactory oil fuel bunkering of vessels alongside berths at Hung Hom Bay or Kowloon Point.

I have ascertained that the Hongkong and Whampoa Dock Company desire to con- struct a pier for the handling of heavy machinery near the entrance to the New Graving Dock now under construction. The position and extent of area which may be occupied for this purpose, without prejudicing this scheme of development, is shewn coloured. light pink cross-hatched darker pink on Drawings Nos. 3 and 4.

Type of Construction.

It is recommended that all the quay walls in this scheme be constructed in block- work with ashlar-faced masonry superstructure. It will be found possible by dredging. to found portions of the quay walls upon natural ground; and where hard ground is not obtained at suitable depths to be reached by the blockwork, the walls should be founded on pell-mell rubble mounds deposited in trenches dredged to depths at which suitable foundations do exist. A pitched slope superstructure founded on a rubble mound brought to the level of low water will protect the south side of the coal depôt and the frontage adjoining Jetty No. 4. In regard to the three piers and dolphin, it is proposed to carry out their construction in reinforced concrete: Groups of steel piles encased in concrete and suitably braced above low water level will carry an ordinary type reinforced concrete decking. The piles over the base of the mound referred to should be driven before pell- mell rubble is deposited. Selected filling material should be used to fill in the spaces- between the walls of the jetties and also behind all other quay walls for a distance of about 250 feet where the widths will allow. The remaining areas of reclamation may be filled in with material dredged in connection with the carrying out of the scheme, the surplus being deposited within the areas of proposed further reclamation at Shamshuipo. Having regard to the development of the reclaimed areas, careful consideration will require to be given to the question of lower initial cost of reclamation by the deposition of dredged material as against the higher initial cost by the use of more suitable filling.

A typical cross section of the scheme is shewn on Drawing No. 11.

With regard to the area shewn coloured pink, the 1,200 feet length of quay wall to the south area of reclamation and adjoining the wharfage above described together with the construction of the back area of reclamation and the 100 feet road may be proceeded with at any time independent of the rest of the scheme. The construction of Jetty No. 1 should not be undertaken until work on the quay wall to the southern area of reclama- tion is well in hand. This jetty may be carried out in two instalments, the first section providing berthage of 1,250 feet on its outer side and 1,205 feet on its inner side for the use of steamers and junks respectively. The second section providing 1,650 feet length of steamer berthage may be commenced simultaneously with or subsequent to the carry- ing out of the first section.

Apportioning this sum over the length of steamer berthage, it is equivalent to a unit cost of $2,294 per lineal foot.

KOWLOON POINT.

Nos. 3, 4 and 11.

Description of Scheme.

This scheme which is shewn on Drawings Nos. 3 and 4 has been designed to provide for expansion of the present accommodation for shipping at Kowloon Point and to meet the conditions outlined in Section II of this report.

155

I would point out, however, that the carrying out of this scheme together with that at Hongkong Central will restrict the width of the harbour and increase to some extent the speed of the tidal currents in this vicinity. It is not anticipated, however, that such currents will cause any difficulties to ships coming alongside or leaving the wharves or piers proposed.

It will be seen that the carrying out of the scheme involves the closing of the entrance to the R.N. Torpedo-boat basin and the opening of a new entrance on its north side.

It is proposed to reclaim a trip of land about 100 feet in width parallel to the present frontage road to the Hongkong and Kowloon Wharf and Godown Co.'s premises and to project, therefrom, in a south-westerly direction, four jetties forming ship and junk basins. The seaward portion of Jetty No. 1 for a length of 1,000 feet will be returned in a southerly direction and Jetty No 4 for a length of 500 feet in a westerly direction, an opening 350 feet in width between their ends being left to form an entrance to the ship and junk basins. The jetties themselves will protect the basins from typhoon seas and afford shelter for small craft.

The re-entrant angle formed by Jetty No. 1 with the breakwater of the R.N. Torpedo- boat basin may increase sea disturbance in this vicinity during typhoon gales from a westerly direction. If found necessary the angle should be filled in by depositing 5 ton blocks pell-mell so that such seas may be absorbed.

Tentative proposals for railway lines running on to the quays from sidings on land now occupied by the Military are illustrated on Drawing No. 4. It will also be seen that it is proposed to connect these sidings with the main line by a railway running under the crossing of Austin and Nathan Roads, thence along the north side of Austin Road.

Type of Construction.

It is recommended that all quay walls in this scheme be constructed in blockwork with ashlar-faced masonry superstructure, the blocks being founded on rubble mounds

deposited in trenches dredged to depths at which suitable foundations exist. mounds should be brought up to the levels determined by the depths to be provided for the accommodation of craft alongside the wall. Selected material, which can be obtained by the levelling of the adjoining land at present occupied by the Military, should be used for all filling required in the carrying out of the scheme, dredged material being disposed of by dumping on the areas of proposed further reclamation at Sham- shuipo.

A typical cross section of the scheme is shewn on Drawing No. 11.

Estimates of Cost.

The Hongkong and Kowloon Wharf and Godown Company desire additional wharf and warehouse accommodation, their proposal for the provision of the former being the construction of a pier 700 feet long and 50 feet wide between Pier No. 1 and the R.N. Torpedo-boat basin entrance. As such a pier is not included in the form of development now submitted and the taking up of any berthage, if constructed, is not yet assured, it is not proposed to make recommendations for the immediate construction of any portion of the scheme; but, as, during the carrying out of any section, the amount of berthage now available will be reduced, temporarily, it is proposed to indicate how the scheme can be developed and at the same time the greatest possible use of the present shipping facilities be retained; also, to give estimates of cost.

Having regard to the above considerations, the following order of procedure with the work of construction is recommended :-

First Instalment.

Construction of 1,800 feet length of Jetty No. 1. This work involves the con- struction of the new entrance and closing of the existing entrance to the R.N. Torpedo-boat basin; also the removal of the seaward portion of Pier No. 1 to the extent of 200 feet (shewn hatched in green colour on Drawings Nos. 3 and 4), thus reducing its length to 450 feet. This pier will then provide on its south side, berthage suitable for a vessel 400 feet long whilst its north side may then be used only by junks and other small craft.

The net result of carrying out this section of the scheme will be the provision of two additional berths for steamers, permanent and temporary berthage aggregating about 2,100 feet in length for the use of junks, and additional areas on which "transit warehouses" may be constructed contiguous with the wharfage.

The estimated cost of the works involved including 10 per cent. for contingencies is as follows:

Apportioning this sum over the length of steamer berthage, it is equivalent to a unit cost of $2,231 per lineal foot.

Third Instalment.

Construction of Jetty No. 4 which involves the removal of Piers Nos. 4 and 5. The net result of carrying out this section of the scheme will be the provision of one more additional berth for the use of steamers, 1,270 feet more berth- age for the use of junks, additional areas on which "transit warehouses may be constructed contiguous with the wharfage and together with Jetty No. 1 protection of the enclosed area from typhoon seas, thus providing shelter for small craft.

When the foregoing instalments of the scheme have been completed, 9 new berths for the use of steamers will be provided, and, of the facilities now existing, there will remain Pier No. 1 (reduced in length) and Piers Nos. 2 and 3 providing berthage for 5 steamers; thus, the provision of the total number of 14 berths for the use of steamers with berthage aggregating 3,370 feet in length for the use of junks. Whilst the con- struction of Jetties Nos. 2 and 3, in lieu of the piers then remaining, will result in the provision of more up-to-date accommodation, the number of steamer berths will be reduced, the net result being a reduction in the total number of berths from 14 to 13; but, there will be an increase of 1,560 feet in the length of berthage for the use of junks and there will be provided additional areas on which "transit warehouses

may be constructed contiguous with the new wharfage, with which railway communication can readily be given. The form of the design within the area enclosed by Jetties Nos. 1 and 4 is therefore submitted as an alternative to the form of Pier design now existing.

WANCHAI BAY.

Having regard to the schemes now recommended for the development of North Point foreshore, Hung Hom Bay, Kowloon Point and at Hongkong Central, it is con- sidered that further reclamation seaward of the boundary of the works now under con- struction in Wanchai Bay would be to the detriment of the harbour generally. The new sea front should therefore be regarded as the final limit of reclamation, in which case permanent piers may be constructed for the accommodation of river steamboats engaged in carrying cargo.

In their Report dated 7th October, 1922, on the proposal to develop North Point foreshore for shipping, the Consulting Engineers state:

(6

When our partner Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice visited Hongkong in November, 1920, he drew special attention to the danger which might result to the harbour from indiscriminate reclamation schemes. He was made fully aware of the large reclamation which at that time had been arranged for between the Naval Yard and East Point, and made certain suggestions in connection therewith ".

The suggestion to which they refer and which had not been lost sight of by me was the advisability of protecting the western entrance to the Causeway Bay Shelter from typhoon seas propagated by westerly gales. The effect of the construction of the new sea wall will be to deflect seas coming from this direction direct into the shelter. Under former conditions waves would be trapped at East Point and their force expended on the foreshore within the area now being reclaimed.

Description of Scheme.

}

For the purpose of protecting the western entrance to Causeway Bay Shelter, it is proposed to reclaim an area of about 241,600 square feet shewn to the east of the wet dock and coloured pink on Drawings Nos. 3 and 7. The eastern boundary of the reclama- tion will allow for a width of entrance the same as that now existing and the northern boundary will not impede the free flow of currents or tend to cause silting up.

In regard to accommodation which may be required for the use of river steamboats carrying cargo, piers may be constructed in the positions shewn on Drawing No. 7, projected at right angles to the line of the new sea wall for an average distance of about 75 feet and thence for a distance of 300 feet in a north-easterly direction, the latter portion being constructed to a width of 100 feet, suitable for the erection of "transit warehouses thereon. The inner portion of each pier may be used by launches, ferry boats or other small craft.

Type of Construction.

It is proposed to protect the reclamation on its eastern side by a pitched slope superstructure and on the northern side by an ordinary type sea wall, both being founded on a pell-mell rubble mound brought up to the level of about L.W.O.S.T. Suitable material for filling in the reclamation area can be obtained in the vicinity. In regard to the wet dock, it is to be constructed by Messrs. Jardine Matheson & Co. for the accom- modation of their small craft. Contract plans have already been prepared.

If and when required, the piers should be constructed in open reinforced concrete work, to provide as far as possible for the free flow of tidal currents. It is considered that the width and inertia of the structure if properly braced will be sufficient to secure stability. It is anticipated that the rubble mound foundation of the new sea wall will be completed before the construction of any of these piers is commenced: In this event the portion of the pier decking over the base of the mound may be satisfactorily carried on columns planted in the rubble.

Extent of Work recommended for immediate construction.

As work on the Praya East Reclamation sea wall is now well in hand, construction of the proposed reclamation should be carried out at an early date.

Nos. 3 and

5.

It is considered that explosives stored in the magazines on Kellett Island will be in Drawings too close proximity to the reclamation necessary to protect the Causeway Bay Shelter. It is recommended therefore, that another site more remote from populated districts should be allocated for this purpose. Kellett Island, after the repeal of Ordinance No. 2 of 1898, will then become available as a permanent "home" for the Royal Hongkong Yacht Club, the area now occupied by it at Whitfield being surrendered to Government. Thus, the large artificial embayment now existing between the properties of the Asiatic Petroleum Co. (M.L. 277) and the Hongkong Electric Co. (M.L. 321) may be filled in to provide much needed building sites in this locality. The land reclaimed should be protected by an ordinary type sea wall.

Shaukiwan.

In the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce discussions,-previously referred Drawing to, the Chairman is reported to have said:---

"A new question which might arise but which has not yet been before the Shipping Sub-Committee is that of a typhoon refuge at Shaukiwan on account of the growth of the shipping and population in that neighbour- hood and its distance from Causeway Bay and Mongkoktsui. The toll during the recent typhoon (on the 18th of August 1923) was very marked there and apparently always will be when winds reaching typhoon force come from an easterly direction

55

The foreshores immediately within Lyemun should remain as far as possible in their natural state so that seas entering the harbour through the eastern entrance may disperse and expend their force rather than be propagated up the harbour.

In the development of Shaukiwan, the boundary shewn coloured yellow on Drawing No. 3 was recommended by me as the seaward limit to which works may be carried out in Aldrich Bay without serious detriment to the harbour. The area of foreshore enclosed within that limit might have been utilized for the formation of a typhoon shelter but the demand for land in this vicinity and the excessive cost of constructing a typhoon refuge in proportion to the area of shelter provided, have determined that the development of this foreshore be by reclamation. To minimize as far as possible the effect of carrying out the reclamation, it is recommended that it be protected by a pitched slope superstruc- ture founded on a rubble mound brought to the level of about L.W.O.S.T.

In regard to the provision of typhoon shelter for small craft engaged in the vicinity of Shaukiwan, it is considered that sufficient accommodation will be available when the North Point Scheme is completed, provided the better found craft proceed to Causeway Bay or Mongkoktsui pending the construction of the alternative shelter provided for in the schemes of development now recommended.

Kun Tong Bay.

A scheme for the development of this bay is shewn coloured pink (cross-hatched) and yellow on Drawing No. 3. It will not be possible, however, to determine if works to the extent shewn may be constructed until the effect on the harbour by the construction of the works involved in the various schemes already recommended and in the develop- ment of the harbour front in general, has been ascertained. The scheme illustrated in yellow colour should be regarded, therefore, as purely tentative. It is not considered that it would be to the detriment of the harbour to reclaim the two areas shewn cross- hatched in pink colour but their development should be considered in connection with the possibility of the construction of the scheme referred to.

In regard to the actual construction of these areas, the reclamations should be protected by pitched slope superstructure founded on rubble mounds brought up to the level of L.W.O.S.T.

Kowloon Bay.

The final lines to which reclamation may be carried out were fixed by the Town Planning Committee as recommended by me in 1922 and are shewn edged in yellow colour on Drawing No. 3.

Provision is made on the east side of the Bay for the junk-building industry and on the west side for the timber trade. In both cases it will not be necessary to enclose the reclamations along the greater part of their frontages; in consequence, it is not antici- pated that the effect of these works will increase, to any extent, sea disturbance in the harbour during typhoon gales.

At Kwo Lo Wan by the construction of a rubble embankment, it is proposed to shelter an area which may be used as a typhoon refuge pending its reclamation when the rubble embankment will serve for the foundation of the protecting sea wall.

Tai Wan.

As already referred to in the description of the Hung Hom Bay scheme, the greater portion of the areas which can be acquired at Tai Wan should be reserved for the pur- pose of dealing with any coal or ores that may possibly be imported by rail.

Application has been received from the China Light and Power Co. for an extension to their present property. In response to this application, the area (about 69,000 square feet) shewn coloured light pink cross-hatched darker pink may be granted without prejudice to a scheme for the handling of the commodities referred to.

The Town Planning Committee in 1922 recommended the construction of a road 100 feet wide, (shewn in pink colour on Drawing No. 2) along the frontage of the properties now abutting on the east side of the Mongkoktsui Harbour of Refuge and extension of the road southward through Kowloon Marine Lot No. 49, thence through the area of Admiralty property now developed for the storage of coal and oil fuel, thence across Military Lands and connecting with Nathan Road.

So far as I am aware, the reasons for the Committee's recommendation were to provide for :-

(a) A greater area of frontage for the discharge from or loading to craft of

materials consigned to or from the back areas of Mongkoktsui.

Under present conditions the Marine Lots leased along this frontage extend to the cope of the sea wall so that the only spaces available for public use are at the ends of the various roads.

(b) Better police control along this water front.

(c) The construction when necessary of a railway line. The Committee has indicated a line, shewn by pink dashes on Drawing No. 2, connecting with the main line beyond Yaumati Railway Station and terminating at Jordan Road.

161

It is by no means clear that there will ever be sufficient trade in this vicinity requir- ing railway transport to warrant the construction of the proposed line. In consequence, I am not in agreement with the Town Planning Committee's recommendation, and con- sider that the proposal for the construction of a railway line from the North-east corner of the Hongkong and Whampoa Dock Co.'s property (Cosmopolitan Dock) to Jordan Road should be abandoned. În this connection the expenditure now being incurred to provide railway bridges over the nullah at Taikoktsui should be curtailed as far as possible.

It is considered that ample space will be provided for the handling of materials and for the better police control of this frontage of the Harbour of Refuge by the construction of the 100 feet road indicated by pink colour cross-hatched by pink lines on Drawing No. 3 and extending from Argyle Street at the north to Tung Kun Street at the south. To continue the road father south would be to the detriment of the Harbour of Refuge and would involve the loss of the reinforced concrete pier constructed recently at the end of Public Square Street and which cost about $50,000, the loss of the pier and slipway at the Government launch-repairing and coaling yard and the cost of resuming a portion of K.M.L. No. 49 and a considerable area of the land now occupied by the Admiralty and Military Authorities. In any case, having regard to the scheme now recommended for the development of Kowloon Point, it will not be practicable to extend the proposed road across the Military Lands. It would seem, therefore, that no useful purpose will be served by building that portion of the road on Admiralty property.

Whilst a road crossing K.M.L. No. 49 on or about the line of the road proposed by the Town Planning Committee will assist to some extent in regulating traffic when the vehicular and passenger ferry service connecting at Jordan Road is brought into opera- tion, it is not quite clear that an increase in width over the width of 40 feet necessary to develop the lot will be required if the proposal to construct that portion of the frontage road from Tung Kun Street to K.M.L. No. 49 is abandoned.

The final line of reclamation of Cheung Sha Wan (Bay) shewn on both Drawings Drawings Nos. 2 and 3 is that fixed by the Town Planning Committee in 1922 on my recommenda- tion.

It is recommended that an ordinary type sea wall founded on a pell-mell rubble mound deposited in a dredged trench and brought to the level of about L.W.O.S.T. should be provided to protect the land reclaimed. From this wall,-if required, piers of open work construction may be projected in a southerly direction for a distance of about 350 feet.

A scheme has been submitted by Messrs. W. S. Bailey & Co., for the development of an area on the western frontage of this reclamation as an engineering, ship-building and ship-repairing yard. Their proposals are illustrated on Drawing No. 3 and include the provision of a basin and three graving docks. It is considered that the site is well suit- ed for this purpose.

Areas to the eastward of the proposed new site for Messrs. W. S. Bailey & Co.'s shipyard should be reserved for the purpose of accommodating the firms now engaged in a somewhat similar industry at Fuk Tsun Heung and Ma Tau Kok and whose present accommodation will become useless for this purpose when the portions of reclamations in front of their properties are carried out.

HARBOURS OF REFUGE.

General.

In regard to typhoon shelter for junks and other small craft, it must be borne in mind that the tonnage of junks engaged in foreign trade has been practically constant be- tween the years 1867 and 1923; that, in 1923 there was actually a decrease of 4.2 per cent. in their number and 9.2 per cent. in their tonnage as compared with the records for the year 1913: Also, that the immediate effect of the provision of wharfage for steamers will be to reduce the number of small craft engaged in transporting goods be- tween the shore and ships anchored in the stream.

As already stated the areas of the Causeway Bay and Mongkoktsui shelters are con- sidered sufficient for the present to accommodate all small craft in the harbour and ample warning is given of a typhoon approaching the Colony to enable them all to enter one or other of these shelters before the effects of the storm are felt. However, the delay now experienced by shipping during typhoon weather could be minimized to some extent if shelter were provided at other points on the harbour front.

Having regard to future requirements, bearing in mind the opinion that the number of small craft is likely to decrease and that, when the schemes for the development of North Point, Hung Hom Bay and Kowloon Point have been completed and are in opera- tion, a large number of junks, barges, launches, &c., will be sheltered in the basins which are necessary for the efficient handling of cargo, it would seem that there is no justification for recommending the construction of any additional typhoon shelters; but, as the greater portion of work necessary in the construction .of a temporary typhoon refuge at Kwo Lo Wan would be utilized in protective works when the area enclosed is reclaimed, little cost would be involved by the provision of this temporary shelter which would be convenient for craft operating in the eastern portion of the harbour. As the shelter which will be acquired by the carrying out of the schemes of development now recommended will be in most cases as conveniently situated as this temporary refuge, its existence will then be no longer justified.

The only remaining question now to be dealt with as regards the existing harbours of refuge is effectiveness of their protective works to shelter the water areas enclosed.

Causeway Bay Shelter.

Protection of this shelter,- necessitated by the carrying out of the Praya East Re- clamation scheme now in progress, has already been dealt with in the scheme recom- mended for the development of Wanchai Bay. When completed it is considered that excellent shelter will be secured for small craft.

Mongkoktsui Harbour of Refuge.

Due to damage having been caused during typhoon weather to small craft moored within this refuge, more particularly on the southern portion, the question of its impro- vement was referred to the Consulting Engineers. Whilst they indicate the position of a spur for the protection of the northern entrance, they are unwilling to recommend its construction. The only work which they propose should be carried out at present is the construction of a spur from the existing breakwater to protect the southern entrance. Their estimate of the cost of this work is $630,000.00. The spurs referred to are shewn in pink colour on Drawing No. 2.

Whilst I agree that the work recommended by the Consulting Engineers would shelter effectively the southern area of this refuge from typhoon seas, I am of the opinion that, without the additional protection of the spurs there will be sufficient area of the re- fuge closed to westerly gales to accommodate all the small craft likely to make use of this shelter when the new accommodation in the schemes recommended is available. To give immediate relief and thus avoid the necessity for craft using the portions of the refuge disturbed by gales blowing from west to south-west, I recommend the provision of alternative accommodation at Kwo Lo Wan pending provision of shelter by the con- struction of wharfage.

The estimated cost of the works necessary to construct this temporary refuge, includ- ing the cost of reclaiming an area of about 79,000 square feet, amounts to $810,000.00. As already stated the works constructed for this purpose will be utilized in the future reclamation of the area enclosed.

General.

Improvements of the Harbour Generally.

In 1905 the Consulting Engineers reported on shoaling in the harbour and in conse- quence of the great importance they attached to the question and the lack of information available, recommended that a very complete survey of certain portions of the harbour should be made.

163

In para graph No. 72 of their report dated 24th November, 1922, they state

"We have been unable to find that any systematic observations has been made at regular intervals of the depth of water in different parts of the harbour. It is of great importance in every harbour that a proper and complete his- tory of the changes which occur from time to time should be available ".

Whilst I have no hesitation in recommending the dredging of Belcher Ridge down to a depth of 36 feet below L.W.O.S.T. over the area cross-hatched pink on Drawing No. 3 at an estimated cost of $45,000.00-due to the fact that no records exist other than such information as may be deduced from Admiralty Charts and which is by no means sufficient on which to formulate any scheme likely to result in permanent improvement of the har- bour, without large maintenance cost,-I regret that I am unable to make any further recommendation for the improvement of the harbour generally.

Harbour Surveys and Records.

I agree with the Consulting Engineers as to the importance of proper records of surveys, tide and current observations, sea action and other matters which form a complete history of any changes which may occur in the harbour from time to time. Due, however, to the lack of proper and effective centralized control under the conditions now existing, it would be exceedingly difficult to obtain satisfactory and reliable data. I would therefore recommend that the design and control of the construction of new works, dumping on unprotected foreshores or elsewhere in the harbour, the supervision and keeping of the necessary records of existing works, dredging and all matters which may make their influence felt in the waters of the Colony should be centered under one Authority.

Whilst the harbour west of a line north and south through the Observatory could be improved by dredging a deep water channel, the recurrent cost of maintenance might be high. I have therefore deferred making any recommendations in this respect until. certain definite information is available. To obtain a portion of the data required, the two self recording tide gauges which have arrived from London should now be erected, one at Lyemun, the other inside Sulphur Channel. When in London, I discussed with the late Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice the necessity for the erection of a third tide gauge at Kowloon Point; he agreed that this might be required.

SECTION IV.

POLICY, CONTROL, MANAGEMENT AND ADMINISTRATION.

167

Policy, Control, Management and Administration.

In my opinion a properly-constituted Advisory Port Authority, Board, or Impartial Tribunal is the first need. It will be observed in Section I of this report that the Economic Resources Committee in 1920 also advised the constitution of Port Authorities.

To enable the Government to appraise intelligently the needs of the Port, the Board should study and observe traffic and port conditions and advise and make recommenda- tions as to whether the results of these studies indicate the desirability of greater channel accommodation by deepening the fairways; the provision of berthage, increased storage space, road and railway transport facilities, bunkering, ship-repair and dry-docking facili- ties, cheaper handling facilities; change in the disposition of buoys, lights, &c.; modi- fication of the tariffs or advice in any matters which concern the efficient working of the Port.

Whilst I have obtained much information to enable me to prepare this report, the various Schemes of Development are recommended with some reserve as the information available is insufficient from which to deduce with any degree of accuracy the nature and extent of actual requirements. In the light of further information the various schemes may require to be modified in detail.

So far the development of the Port has been left to private enterprize and adequate accommodation has not been made for shipping. Without the provision of the most economic handling and storage facilities possible, the present developments together with the advantages of the security pertaining to British Adminstration, the Colony's banking facilities and its excellent harbour are unlikely to be sufficient inducement for the pro- ducer to send forward his traffic so that Hongkong may deal with the trade its strategic position should secure.

Private companies, however, can not be expected to meet the cost of development works which are necessary to secure true efficiency and economy in the handling of car- goes as the return on the capital cost is subject to trade being handled over the works constructed. In this respect it may be mentioned that the Port derives little benefit from the large transhipment business at Hongkong on through Bills of Lading. Nevertheless. private enterprise should be encouraged rather than abandoned. All obstacles such as any marine and pier rights or other domination of the water front in the way of creating modern accommodation for shipping should be removed if unable to be co-ordinated in the general plan of developments. Port facilities are in the service not only of the Colony but of South China and indeed of the many ports with which commerce is inter- changed. The control of the Port itself and of port facilities as well as of all other mat- ters relating to the waterways, construction of quay accommodation, supervision of all port works under construction, and the general maintenance, amelioration and extension of the accommodation for the exploitation of the waters of the Colony should therefore be retained in the hands of the Government.

Since the shipping or godown companies themselves cannot be expected to initiate. necessary reforms, Government should put into operation such works as are recommended and such extensions as with the advice of the Advisory Authority it is considered will best serve the interests of the Port. The construction of the quays, harbour roads and the carrying out of all necessary dredging should be undertaken by Government which would lease the steamer berths to private operators on long term leases.. The junk basins, being as necessary an adjunct to transport as roads and railways and at the same time providing shelter for small craft during typhoon weather should not be a charge on the lessee of the steamer berth. Private enterprise, however, should be required to provide the shed, cargo handling and all other facilities. In regard to the granting of exclusive and particularly long term leases for the use of the piers and wharves, it would seem well to observe some degree of caution. The recent experience in America has been that such leases may result in less efficient use of the facilities than is desirable for the best interests of the Port. A lessee, for example, may keep his wharf idle rather than permit its use by an actual or potential competitor or he may make such high charges as to drive business away from the port. This actually happened in New York during the Great War. If leases are made, they should preferably be in the form of first call on the berth, Government reserving to itself the right when the berth is vacant to assign to it vessels other than those belonging to the lessee or in which he may hold a direct or indirect interest.

.

.

168

The basis of this policy is that, while there would be the broad impartial outlook of Government which would provide the costly works and lease them on reasonable term for the exploitation of the Port, the administration of business would be carried out by commercial people who should be interested in despatch, efficiency, and economy on the method of Profit and Loss.

In making careful investigation of the present conditions at the Port and of the possibilities of new trade, I have obtained a great deal of information from Mr. J. D. Lloyd, Superintendent of Imports and Exports, from Lieut.-Commander Hake, Assistant (then Acting) Harbour Master, from Mr. R. Baker, M.Inst.C.E., Engineer of Way and Works, Kowloon-Canton Railway, from Captain W. J. E. Mackenzie, M.C., M.R.C.V.S., Colonial Veterinary Surgeon, and from other Government Officials; also from the Repre- sentatives of the Shipping and Godown Companies, and others, and I am under great obligation to these gentlemen for the way in which they freely gave me such information. I am also indebted to Mr. A. W. Tickle, F.R.I.B.A., F.S.I., for preparing the sketch elevation shewn on Drawing No. 10.

In conclusion, I have pleasure in acknowledging the assistance which I have received from the Senior Assistant Engineer, Mr. Andrew Nicol, Assoc.M.Inst.C.E., in the prepa- ration of Drawings and Estimates, and in particular, the assistance which I have received from the Deputy Port Engineer, Mr. Adam Anderson, B.E., B.A., who has taken a very keen interest in the study of this important problem and in the preparation of this Report.

CONTRACTOR: MESSRS. TROLLOPE & COLLS.

Quarterly Report ending 30th September, 1924.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency the Governor on the 3rd November, 1924.

Tenders for the erection of the superstructure were invited on 11th July, to be submitted by 28th July.

The tenders were checked, the necessary contract documents prepared and a con- tract was entered into on 25th August with Messrs. Trollope & Colls (Far East) Ltd., amounting to $855,898.26.

Building operations cannot be commenced immediately on a contract of this magnitude, as the contractors require a reasonable time to arrange for materials and plant.

.

Satisfactory progress has been made and plant, consisting of concrete mixers, elevators and cranes have been delivered, while consignments of materials-broken stone, sand, cement, bricks and timber have been deposited on the site.

The levels and setting out of the building have been checked and work is proceed- ing on the assembling and erection of the plant, and on the fixing of the wood casing for the concreting to the stanchions.

No. 1924

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE APPOINTED BY H, E. THE GOVERNOR TO CONSIDER THE COLONY'S POSITION WITH REGARD TO THE OBLIGATIONS INCURRED UNDER THE INTERNATIONAL OPIUM CONVENTION, 1912.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency the Governor on the 18th September, 1924.

HONGKONG, 1st March, 1924.

The Committee has been appointed "to consider the suggestions made by the Advisory Committee of the League of Nations with a view to determining what further measures can be taken in Hongkong to give a more effective application to Chapter II of the Opium Convention, and to examine the existing position, and to explore the possibilities of further effective action ".

By Article 6 in Chapter II of the Convention it is provided that "the contracting Powers shall take measures for the gradual and effective suppression of the manufacture of, internal trade in, and use of prepared opium, with due regard to the varying circum- stances of each country concerned ".

2. In Hongkong the measures now taken to give effect to Article 6 comprise a Gov- ernment monopoly, sale of Government opium at an artificially high price, heavy penalties in respect of trafficking in or use of opium other than Government opium, and the maintenance of a considerable force of Revenue Officers for the purpose of prevent- ing such trafficking or use. There is no check upon the consumption of opium apart from the high price charged for Government opium and the penalties imposed in respect of illicit opium, and it is obvious that the continuance of the present policy cannot lead to the suppression of the use of opium in the Colony. The most that that policy can effect under existing conditions is to keep the opium habit within bounds.

The problem to be solved is whether, under existing conditions, it is possible to. suppress, either immediately or gradually, the consumption of opium in Hongkong.

The Committee, in considering this matter, has ignored the financial aspect of the opium question, and it is agreed that, as far as it is concerned, the fact that the Colony derives a considerable revenue from the sale of opium is entirely irrelevant.

3. The Committee is of the opinion that some twenty to twenty five per cent of the adult Chinese population, including some one to two per cent of the adult female popula- tion, either smoke or swallow opium. It is stated by the persons employed in selling Government opium that the percentage has slightly increased during the past six or seven years. Chinese of the better class are inclined to regard the opium habit as dis- creditable, much as they would regard betting as discreditable, but they are certainly not prepared to practise what they might possibly preach. Public opinion might not countenance too open a parade of either gambling or opium smoking, but at least it has no great fault to find with the not, too ostentatious practice of the latter habit. Opium smoking in China has perhaps the same popular support as betting has in England, and the one practice is probably as difficult to eradicate as the other.

This statement will no doubt be traversed by the argunient that the cultivation of the poppy in China was practically put an end to about the year 1917, and that the final suppression of opium smoking was then all but attained. In the opinion of the Committee this argument is not supported by facts. The Chinese Government had consistently resented and opposed the export of Chinese silver to pay for Indian opium, and, when the British Government agreed to put an end to the import of Indian opium upon condi- tions, the conditions were at once accepted. Those conditions included the suppression poppy cultivation in China, and under constant Consular supervision and protest much

60

was done in this direction, although it is probable that the reports of foreign observers expressed an optimism unwarranted by the facts. Very large stocks of opium, both raw and prepared, were carried, and not long after the final exclusion of Indian opium the internal restrictions became a dead letter throughout the greater part of the country. Since the earliest days of the opium question in China the principal concern of the Provincial Governments has been to eradicate, not the opium habit, but the Indian opium habit, and the failure to attain this end, until India cooperated, may be attributed to the fact that public taste vastly prefers the Indian to the home-grown drug.

4. In the present state of Chinese public opinion the only way to diminish or to put a stop to the use of opium is to diminish or to put a stop to the production of opium. The first Article in Chapter I of the Opium Convention requires the con- tracting Powers to enact effective laws or regulations for the control of the production and distribution of raw opium, and, except in so far as India is concerned, this obligation is for practical purposes entirely disregarded. There is no effective control over the production and distribution of Chinese, Persian, and Turkish opium. The enforcing of Article I of the Convention must be antecedent to the enforcing of Article 6 of the Convention, and, while China continues to provide its population with opium in limitless quantity, Hongkong, in attempting to prevent consumption by those Chinese who happen to be within its borders, is merely beating the air.

5. The Committee estimates that approximately equal quantities of Government and illicit opium are consumed in the Colony. An increase in the Government selling price would probably result in a pro tanto substitution of illicit for Government opium. Any substantial decrease in the Government selling price would almost certainly result in a substantial increase in consumption generally, as Government opium is of much superior quality, and, if it were available at the price of illicit opium, the demand would be very greatly increased.

6. The Committee has carefully considered the question of increasing the number of Revenue Officers and of providing more drastic penalties for trafficking in and using illicit opium, and it is satisfied that the measures already taken by the Government go as far as is reasonably possible in this direction. The Chinese Community has objected time and again to the methods of search now employed, methods far more drastic than any used in the United Kingdom. Public opinion is at least not emphatic against the smuggler, and the Chinese searcher declines to make himself unpopular, except for an adequate consideration. It is known that the smuggler not infrequently outbids the Government for the Revenue Officer's services. As regards penalties, these are already of exceptional severity, including heavy fines, long terms of imprisonment, and frequent banishment.

7. The first two resolutions of the Advisory Committee are to the effect that the opium business should be a Government Monopoly and that retail sales should be made only from Government shops, by persons on a fixed salary, without any com- mission on the amount of business done.

It is understood that the Government, which already controls the opium business in Hongkong, is making arrangements on the lines suggested in connection with retail sales.

8. The third resolution of the Advisory Committee recommends "that a uniform maximum limit should be fixed for the amount of prepared opium placed on sale for consumption, calculated according to the number of the adult Chinese male population".

A measure such as this would result in the buying up and hoarding of stocks by speculators, who would re-sell at an enhanced price. Persons unwilling to pay the price would substitute illicit for Government opium. It would be preferable to limit sales by raising the price rather than by restricting the quantity on the market, but neither expedient would diminish consumption, as illicit opium would take the place of Government opium.

The Committee understands that in 1920 the Government of the Straits Settlements attempted to reduce consumption by limitation of supplies and that after a few months it found it necessary to abandon this policy. The Government of the Punjab's experience in this connection is set out in paragraph 31 of the Report on the Excise Administration of the Punjab during the year 1921-22. It is there stated that measures such as the restriction of supply of excise opium lead to smuggling "and simply aggravate the

61

situation. The Financial Commissioner has accordingly decided recently to change the policy in this respect with the object of ensuring that there shall in each district be a sufficient supply of opium so that the needs of the people may be satisfied without their having recourse to smuggling".

9. The Advisory Committee, in its fourth resolution, recommends that the possibilities of the system of registration and licensing, which has already been introduced in some of the Far Eastern territories, should be thoroughly explored."

In a Chinese community of the size of that in Hongkong it would not be possible to keep a check upon licences, if they were issued in any considerable number. Licences would be bought and sold, impersonation would be rife and licensees would corner stocks and profiteer. It has been suggested that licences should be confined to persons. permanently resident in the Colony. Some ten to twelve thousand Chinese pass daily between Hongkong and China: a large part of the population, having permanent homes in China, is in the Colony for a longer or shorter period according to the prospects of remunerative work and there are periodical in-rushes of refugees who escape from dis- order in China and dribble back at varying intervals as quiet is restored to their individual village or district. This large unstable population would bring in the opium to which it is accustomed in China, and its more wealthy members would purchase the much superior Hongkong brand from the licensed permanent residents; which permanent residents would probably be men of the coolie class put forward as figure heads by profiteering syndicates.

It has been put before the Committee that smokers are already registered and licensed in the Netherlands East Indies. The Netherlands East Indies are at a consider- able distance from China, reached only after a long sea voyage. The Chinese are there an alien and not an indigenous race, and they form a very small fraction of the total population. Hongkong is geographically and racially an integral part of China, and, with the exception of a mere handful, the whole of its population is Chinese. The task proposed to Hongkong may be compared to the task of preventing the use in Manchester of an article which is in common use throughout the rest of England. The task before the Netherlands East Indies may be compared to the task of, for example, the Argentine Authorities in preventing the use by Englishmen within their territory of an article to which these Englishmen are habitually accustomed in England.

The argument formerly advanced in support of registration and licensing was based upon the desirability of gradually weaning from the habit smokers who have long been accustomed to the drug. There would be no necessity to license in Hongkong on this score, as, if Government opium was not available, smokers would use illicit opium.

10. The Advisory Committee proposes, in its fifth resolution, that the retail price of prepared opium and the penalties for the infraction of the law in regard to its import, export, sale, and use, should be made uniform in the various territories concerned.

It would hardly serve any useful purpose to discuss this question while present conditions obtain in China. As far as Hongkong is concerned, it would be unwise to reduce the present retail price of opium or to relax the existing penalties for infringe- ment of the law. It is most improbable that certain territories could be persuaded to adopt a standard of severity equal to that established in Hongkong. In a recent case in Shanghai the Press commented on a sentence of four months imprisonment and a fine of $500 in respect of a seizure of 645 pounds of opium, as being one of the severest sentences on record in Shanghai. In a similar case in Hongkong the Magistrate would probably impose a sentence of twelve months' hard labour without the option of a fine and the offender would probably be banished on coming out of gaol. The severest sentence on record in Hongkong is a fine of $50,000, and a fine of $10,000 is not unusual.

11. It has been suggested that the official figures of opium consumption in the Colony bear no relation to the actual rate of consumption, and that, in view of recent revelations as to smuggling, there is no really effective control of the consumption of opium in the Colony.

The official figures show that during the years 1919-1922 the consumption per head of the population averaged tael .53. Figures in this connection are of doubtful value, but, as this particular figure has been queried, it will be as well to examine the point in detail.

The consumption of tacl .53 refers to Government opium. In paragraph 5 of this report it is suggested that the consumption of illicit opium equals the consumption of Government opium, and on this basis the total consumption is taels 1.06 per head.

62

These figures are based upon an estimated average population of 650,000. It is notorious that the Hongkong census figures are much below the actual figures of popula- tion, for reasons which it is unnecessary to examine here. The Committee has informa- tion regarding the actual population to the following effect :-

The bulk of the Colony's nightsoil is carried away by a Contractor for purposes of mauure for mulberry growing. The successful bidder for the present contract, dating from 1921, worked upon the census figure of 680,000 persons, and allowed for taels 3 in weight of nightsoil per head per day, or a total of some 1275 piculs. He reduced this figure to 1100 piculs because of wastage through water closets and boat population, and he tendered accordingly. The amount of nightsoil now being collected approximates to 2500 piculs or nearly four million taels, which, at taels 3 per head, gives a population of over 1,300,000, without allowing for wastage. The figure arrived at through this some- what unusual method of census taking is probably very much nearer the mark than the official figure and upon this basis the total consumption of opium comes out again at about half a tael a head.

12. It has to be admitted that the only persons who need purchase Government opium are those who want a high grade product and those who prefer to pay a high price rather than risk the penalty for the use of smuggled opium: and this argument holds good in respect of the consumption of any duty paid article in lieu of its smuggled counterpart. But it does not follow that there is no effective control over the consump- tion of such article. It is the opinion of the Committee that the control exercised in Hongkong is as effective as is possible in the extraordinarily difficult circumstances. As long as unlimited supplies of opium are available, opium cannot be kept out of the Colony. The Government of Hongkong, realising this fact, has devised a compromise. It sells a good grade of opium at a very high price and it visits with severe penalties all those who are found to be trafficking in or using other opium. There can be no doubt that shortness of purse on the one hand and fear of the consequences on the other do keep consumption very far below the rate which would obtain if Government opium were cheapened or prohibited or penalties were relaxed.

13.1 The various proposals for a gradual diminution in the amount of opium legitimately available have been discussed in the preceding paragraphs. It remains to examine the question whether, consumption of opium could be reduced, if no further legitimate supplies were available. It has been pointed out in paragraph 9 that the habitual smoker need not be considered, and, if such a step should result in decreased consumption, the Government should go out of business at once.

The Committee has expressed the opinion that a gradual reduction of legitimate supplies will be counterbalanced by an increase in the use of illicit opium. If the use of opium were to be prohibited, it is probable that the situation would get entirely out of hand. A comparison which suggests itself is the placing of a small foreign Government in Marseilles and the prohibition by it of the drinking of wine by the French within the town: _except that opium is much more easily smuggled than wine. Neither the Hong- kong Government nor the Council of the League of Nations can prevent indulgence in a practice habitual in a nation of four hundred million people unless that nation desires to give up that indulgence, and unfortunately there is no present indication that the opium habit will be abandoned by the Chinese people in the near future. It may be mentioned in this connection that the Committee has read with considerable surprise the statements by Mr. Chao Hsin-chu regarding Shanghai, which appear at pages 61 and 65 of the Minutes of the Fifth Session of the Advisory Committee. The information before the Committee is to the effect that enormous quantities of opium go to Shanghai, and the consumption there is very large. The supervision in Shanghai is notoriously far less strict than it is in Hongkong.

In Canton the Government has for some time past been selling opium for revenue purposes, and a Monopoly has now been formally established.

14. The Committee understands that the practice of swallowing opium is spreading amongst the Chinese, a practice which, according to medical evidence, is at least not less harmful than smoking opium. The League of Nations Advisory Committee does not apparently take exception to the swallowing of opium and the hemp drugs, ganja, charas, and bhang, by Indians in India, and accordingly, if smoking is prohibited in Hongkong, the Government must be prepared to face a demand that swallowing should be permitted according to the practice in India. It is difficult to see how a discrimina- tion in favour of India could be justified.

1

63

15. It has been suggested that, if confirmed opium smokers are registered and the use of opium is otherwise prohibited, the British Government will have done everything possible to discharge its obligations under the Opium Convention. The Committee cannot agree with this suggestion. No Government placed as the Hongkong Government is can put a stop to a national habit of an alien race so long as it has not the full support of public opinion, and the confining of opium to a few smokers, or total prohibition which would be preferable, would result in a flood of smuggling which it would be impossible

to stem.

The difficulties of detection of smuggling are in present circumstances insuperable. Hongkong, with a total area of 376 square miles, has a coast and frontier line of 400 miles over any part of which Chinese may come and go at will. Opium in bulk comes by ocean going steamer, of which the crew, frequently, and sometimes the officers, are in league with the smuggler, and it comes also by launch and by junk. The opium is fre- quently put overboard outside the harbour limits, having attached to it a float which remains. submerged for a given period and then rises to the surface. The Hongkong Government is about to incur heavy expense in providing a new sea-going revenue vessel to operate outside harbour limits. Many Revenue and Police launches operated by the Chinese Government carry on an active trade in contraband and, having a Government status, they are more or less immune from search. One such launch was recently sunk in Hongkong waters, and on examination of the wreck opium and arms were found in it. Opium is carried in receptacles bolted outside the bottom of a junk, in a hollowed out spar, in a compartment inside a tin of petrol or a jar of wine, in the leg of a bedstead, in a bag of flour, in a woman's hair, in fact in every possible place in which the ingenuity of the Chinese can devise means to hide an article the bulk of which is as small as its value is large. The Chinese, who will slice the top from a silver dollar, will hollow out the interior, refill with base metal and replace the top, would not stumble into such traps as the European might be able to set for him except by the merest chance. The Government's only efficacious weapon is money, and it is usually worth the smuggler's while to out-bid the Government. An unscrupulous Revenue Officer and an informer, working on strict business lines, concern themselves merely with the amount of the inducement, and are indifferent as to its source.

16. The Hongkong Government has been urged to supplement ordinary preventive measures by concentration on the detection of the capitalists who finance the smugglers. This Government has for years past been doing its utmost in this direction, with results comparable to the baling of water with a sieve. For many years large quantities of opium were smuggled into Hongkong from England where there was no control of export, and, except for occasional seizures, the Hongkong Government was powerless to deal with the matter. In 1916 Messrs. Alfred Holt and Company presented a memorial to the Imperial Government regarding the constant smuggling in their ships, pointing out that "the evil should be attacked at the root.

So long as opium can be thus sold wholesale in this country as freely as the most harmless and necessary foods, so long will the joint operation of laxity in the United Kingdom and severity abroad make illicit traffic easy and pro- fitable. When the opium is once divided into small parcels and distributed among numerous carriers, the difficulty of suppression is enormously increased. Messrs. Alfred Holt and Company would therefore urge upon His Majesty's Government the necessity of altering the law, so that the contraband trade may be stopped in the early stages. The Imperial Government subsequently controlled the traffic, and no more opium came to Hongkong from England. Similarly opium from Persia and China is being poured into Hongkong. In 1923 the Senior Revenue Officer alone captured 716 illicit divan keepers, 3,359 illicit opium smokers, 386 traffickers in illicit opium, and 60 boilers of illicit opium. With opium altogether prohibited the Hongkong Government would lose the con- trol which it now has, smuggling would become universal, and consumption would be greatly increased. Hongkong would then be in the position of China, with opium smok- ing theoretically prohibited and practically uncontrolled, because uncontrollable.

17. Reform must come from within. The League of Nations has prevented opium from India reaching China and it may possibly find means to prevent Persian and Turkish opium from reaching China. China can and will grow all the opium that she requires as long as the opium habit is to the public taste and no really strong body of public opinion is opposed to it. It is the firm conviction of the Committee that under present circumstances no reasonable measure can be devised to reduce further the con- sumption of opium in Hongkong. The Committee is however in entire accord with the

64

principle of opium suppression, and it is its sincere hope that it will be possible to devise some practical means for the total abolition of the practices of opium smoking and opium eating both in China and throughout all parts of the world.

HONGKONG.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE APPOINTED BY H.E. THE GOVERNOR OF

HONGKONG TO CONSIDER THE ADVISABILITY OF REVISING THE LIFE-SAVING APPLIANCES RULES IN FORCE IN HONGKONG FOR FOREIGN GOING PASSENGER VESSELS.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency

the Governor on the 31st July, 1924.

Appendix A.

1. We have given careful consideration to the suggestions and recommen- dations contained in the letter (copy of which is shown in Appendix A from the Mercantile Marine Department of the Board of Trade dated the 4th October, 1923, addressed to the Colonial Secretary, Hongkong.

2. We recommend the following: -

That the Hongkong Passenger Certificate authorizing Foreign Going vessels to carry passengers be divided into 3 classes; each class to be governed by its own rules and regulations.

3.

Class I.

"HONGKONG PASSENGER CERTIFICATE".

Foreign going vessels certified to carry passengers beyond the limits of 10° S. Latitude and the Meridians 60° East and 141° East.

4.

Class II.

'HONGKONG PASSENGER CERTIFICATE (FAR EAST)".

Foreign going vessels certified to carry passengers within the limits of 10° S. Latitude and the Meridians 60° East and 141° East.

5.

Class III.

"HONGKONG PASSENGER CERTIFICATE (RIVER STEAMERS)".

River steamers certified to carry passengers within the limits of the Canton and West Rivers including Macao.

6.

Class I.

Appendix B.

"HONGKONG PASSENGER CERTIFICATE",

This certificate to be in all respects the same as that issued by the Board of Trade for foreign going passenger steamships (see Appendix B).

Appendix C.

Appendix D.

:

Appendix E.

7.

54

Class II.

"HONGKONG PASSENGER CERTIFICATE (FAR EAST)".

This certificate to be based on the existing Hongkong passenger certifi- cate for foreign going vessels (see Appendix C) with the following amend-

ments:

(a) That the provisions of a Wireless Telegraphy Apparatus be made compulsory in all vessels (the Committee unanimously are of the opinion that this provision should extend to all Sea Going vessels exceeding 1,600 tons not authorized to carry passen-

gers).

(b) That additional freeboard during the Typhoon Season should be

enforced (see Appendix D).

That the type of life raft at present in use should be improved

(see Appendix E).

Class III.

"HONGKONG PASSENGER CERTIFICATE (RIVER STEAMERS)".

This certificate to be based on the existing Hongkong passenger certificate issued to river steamers with the following amendments:-

(a) That life belts should be provided, one for each person on board

i.e. passengers and crew.

(b) That the provision of a Wireless Telegraphy Apparatus be made

compulsory.

(c) That the type of life raft at present in use should be improved.

9. We would point out that the adoption of the foregoing suggestions will affect the requirements of Emigration Licences and Surveys and would recom- mend that "Long voyage "be considered as Class 1 and "Short voyage "be

considered as Class II.

Appendix A.

SIR,

MERCANTILE MARINE DEPARTMENT,

BOARD OF TRADE,

3, Sanctuary Buildings, Great Smith Street,

London, S.W. 1.

4th October, 1923.

I am directed by the Board of Trade to transmit to you herewith a copy of a letter which has been received from the Department of Navigation, Sydney, New South Wales, respecting the Chinese steamer Ling Nam which arrived at Sydney for the purpose of embarking passengers. The Board observe that the vessel held a Hongkong Passenger Certificate but was not provided with boat accommodation sufficient for all persons which it was intended to carry and they, therefore presume, that the Life Saving Appliances Rules at present in force in Hongkong do not provide for boats to be carried on foreign- going passenger steamers sufficient to accommodate all persons on board, as do those which have been in force in this country since 1915.

In the opinion of the Board of Trade the provision of boats in this case falls very far short of what is necessary in the interest of the safety of life of passengers and crew, and I am accordingly to suggest that the Hongkong Government might consider the advisability of revising the Life Saving Appliances Rules in force in Hongkong so as to require foreign-going passenger steamers to be provided, if practicable, with boat accom- modation for all persons on board, or if this is not practicable, with as many lifeboats as can be effectively stowed and launched.

A copy of the Rules in force in this country is enclosed for your information with a copy of a report by the Merchant Shipping Advisory Committee which has recently been considering the question of life saving appliances on foreign-going passenger vessels. The Board are now considering that alterations should be made to the existing Rules in view of the recommendations made by this Committee and a copy of the new Rules will be forwarded to you as soon as available.

The Colonial Secretary,

Hongkong.

I am, Sir.

Your obedient servant,

(Sd.)

G. E. BAKER.

Appendix B.

The Hongkong passenger certificate is based generally on the Board of Trade requirements but falls short of such by the omission of a Wireless Telegraphy apparatus-the modification in the life saving appliances Rules. It is highly important that the Hongkong passenger certificate should be recognised by the Board of Trade and be valid in the United Kingdom and throughout the British Empire.

Hongkong is one of the largest ports in the World, a port of Registry-a ship building centre with large docks, big repairing Yards-the terminal port of many ocean going passenger vessels where they dock, overhaul and refit and in the interests of this large port and the shipping companies concerned, we consider that it is most desirable

"

.

56

that Hongkong should adopt the Board of Trade principles of the passenger certificate for ocean going vessels-and for this purpose full details of such requirements should be obtained from the Board of Trade and their recognition of this certificate as being in all respects the same as their own be obtained.

Appendix C.

Hongkong and the far east services which involve the large and important question of conveying the masses of Chinese to and from their fields of labour and the difficulty in this British Colony of legislating for the carriage of same in vessels under rules based on those apertaining in the European Countries is, we, consider,

(1) Impracticable (2) Inadvisable.

(1) The impracticability is that the vessels employed in this particular passenger trade are of small size averaging from 300 to 400 feet in length and to place boats in sufficient number to accommodate all persons on board would in the majority of cases be impossible and in others impracticable in that it would entail packing and/or stacking of boats which would only tend to increase the loss of life in the event of any accident to the vessel by reducing the available boats under davits less accessible. There are other difficulties deterent to organizing and maintaining efficient boat drill by the massing of boats such as the Chinese crews employed, the language difficulty, frequent changes of officers which is unavoidable owing to the exigencies of the services and the climatic conditions.

(2) The inadvisability of reducing the number carried in vessels to conform to the principle of "boats for all" would tend to drive the trade to foreign vessels particularly Chinese whose Mercantile Marine of steamships is ever increasing and whose country's maritime laws are practically non-existent. The Governments of India and the Straits Settlements are probably faced with the same difficulties only to a less degree than Songkong and the present Hongkong passenger certificate in its application to Life Having Appliances Rules is at least equal to that of these two countries.

The Governments of India and the Straits Settlements should be asked to accept this certificate as heretofore.

Appendix D.

We consider that in reference to the question of additional free board, the Govern- ment should be guided by the recommendations of a Committee which has been appointed by the Board of Trade under the chairmanship of Vice Admiral F. C. Learmonth-"To study the weather conditions obtaining on the various sea routes of the World, and to advise, having regard to their conditions, to what geographical Zones the application of their special seasonal conditions of loading prescribed in the British Tables of free board may properly be extended, in what periods of the year in each zone the special conditions of loading should apply".

Appendix E.

The present type of life raft is an air tank made of light sheet brass with soldered joints, this is not considered satisfactory owing to its easy liability to damage. We consider that the type should be improved as far as the conditions in regard to lightness and portability will allow. We are of the opinion that air tanks made of light steel sheet galvanized and with rivetted joints would be more serviceable-but in this respect we recommend that information on the type approved by the Board of Trade be obtained from them.

AWARD OF SIR JOHN HUBERT OAKLEY IN RESPECT OF CERTAIN LANDS NOW VESTED IN THE ARMY COUNCIL.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency the Governor, 7th February, 1924.

3

To All To Whom these presents shall come I SIR JOHN HUBERT OAKLEY, KNIGHT, of 4/5 Charles Street St. James's Square London England send greeting Whereas the lands situate in the Colony of Hongkong and more particularly delineat- ed and described on the maps or plans hereto annexed and referred to in the schedule hereto with the buildings thereon and the appurtenances thereto are now vested in the Army Council (which designation where used in these presents includes the Secretary of State for War and the War Office) in fee simple, in possession or for an estate or interest deemed for the purposes of these presents to be the equivalent And Whereas the Government of the Colony of Hongkong being desirous of taking transfer of or purchas- ing from the Army Council the said lands entered into negotiations with the Army Council therefor And Whereas in and for the said negotiations I the said SIR JOHN HUBERT OAKLEY was appointed by the Army Council to proceed to the said Colony and to ascertain the value of the said lands And Whereas after my arrival at the said Colony to take up the duties of the said appointment the Army Council and the Govern- ment of Hongkong through their respective representatives agreed that subject only to the provisoes or reservations hereinafter set forth within ten years from the date of this my award (time in this respect being of the essence of the agreement) the Army Council would sell and transfer to the Government of Hongkong and the Government of Hong- kong would purchase from the Army Council at the total price or sum to be awarded by me all the said lands which lands for the purpose of such sale should be treated as an indivisible whole save only that in case of withdrawal of one or more complete block or lot or blocks or lots as hereinafter mentioned then the remaining blocks or lots or block or lot not so withdrawn should in like manner be treated as an indivisible whole as to which the sale and transfer should be completed and take effect in accordance with my award And Whereas the provisoes or reservations hereinbefore referred to are as follows, that is to say-(i) That if during the period of ten years from the date of the award and before completion of the transfer unforseen circumstances shall in the opinion of the Army Council render it desirable or expedient to withdraw any one or more complete block or lot or blocks or lots then and in such event only the Army Council shall be free and at liberty to withdraw such one or more complete block or lot or blocks or lots--and (ii) That if the sum total of the award shall be deemed by the Government of Hongkong to be a greater price than the said Colony can afford to pay and the Governor of Hongkong shall in writing inform the General Officer Commanding the Forces in China thereof at the earliest possible date being not later than four months from the date of the award then the Government of Hongkong shall not be bound to proceed with and complete the purchase and transfer or to proceed with the reprovisioning of the garrison elsewhere And Whereas the blocks or lots herein before referred to are the several pieces of land shown on the said maps or plans and thereon indicated by distinctive colouring and numbering and also described in the said schedule as separate items Now Know Ye that I the said SIR JOHN HUBERT OAKLEY having taken upon myself the duties obligations and burthen of the said appointment and reference and having been attended by the representatives in Hongkong of the Army Council and the Government of Hongkong and their witnesses and by witnesses called by myself and having heard and considered the allegations and proofs so before me and having viewed all the said lands and having also in making this my award regarded not only the value of the interest of the Army Council in the lands described in the said

2

schedule but also any damage to be sustained by the Army Council in the event of sale and transfer as aforesaid by reason of the severing of the lands to be sold and purchased from other lands of the Army Council and by otherwise injuriously affecting such other lands by reason of such sale and transfer except as regards access by existing roads footways and carrying ways all of which are to remain available to the Army Council and the garrison as heretofore until some equally suitable and approved access is provided by the Government of Hongkong and having also regarded the fact that the Government of Hongkong have agreed as a condition precedent to transfer by the Army Council to reprovision as regards site and buildings and having also regarded the agreements terms stipulations provisoes and reservations as recited herein Do make this my award in writing of and concerning the premises in the manner following that is to say-I do award settle order and determine that upon sale and transfer by the Army Council to the Government of Hongkong of the lands described in the schedule hereto within ten years from the date hereof but not thereafter the total or aggregate of the several sums set out in the fifth column of the said schedule or ascertainable from the rates and figures in the said schedule set forth and the rules therein laid down for ascertaining increases or deductions in certain cases will be due from the Government of Hongkong to the Army Council as and for the price purchase money and compensa- tion for the lands described in the said schedule and the inheritance thereof in fee simple in possession and for all damages to be sustained by the Army Council by reason: of any severing and injurious affecting of other lands on such sale and transfer except as herein before mentioned And I do also award settle order and determine that the several sums set out in the fifth column of the said schedule are site values which include the value of materials of buildings now standing on the lands to which such several sums relate for removal by the purchaser where such removal could be made at a profit and allowing for the cost to the purchaser of such removal where such cost would be more than the value of the materials And that if upon completion of the sale and purchase as aforesaid the Government of Hongkong should decide to make some use of a permanent nature of any of the buildings which at the time of transfer may be on the lands transferred instead of pulling down such buildings then and in every such case the value as may be mutually agreed by the Army Council and the Government of Hongkong of the buildings so used according to and based upon the use so to be made shall be added to the price or sum of or for the land upon which such building stands And further I do award settle order and determine that in the event of withdrawal by the Army Council as herein before mentioned of any of the said complete blocks or lots then and in such case the price or sum which will be due as aforesaid will be the said sum total or aggregate less such of the said several sums set out or ascertainable as aforesaid as relate to the block or lot or blocks or lots so withdrawn In Witness whereof I have set my hand to this duplicate of my award this Second day of November One thousand nine hundred and twenty three.

QUEEN'S PIER-ENTRANCE PORTION.

CONTRACT No. 62 of 1922. CONTRACTOR MESSRS. YAU HING & Co.

Quarterly Report ending 30th September, 1924.

Laid before the Legislative Council by Command of His Excellency

the Governor on the 3rd November, 1924.

The progress with this contract is unsatisfactory. The contractors do not appear to be making any serious effort to carry out their obligations under the contract in a business like manner, and their assurances, given from time to time, to expedite the work have never been fulfilled.

The date of completion of the contract was 30th June; however, in view of alleged difficulties the contractors have had to contend with in regard to the stone masons-but from the responsibility for which the contractors cannot be entirely absolved-an exten- sion of time without penalty was granted until 4th October, on the contractors assurance that the work would be completely finished by the latter date.

A slight improvement-though still slow-was shown in carrying out the works, during the months of July and August, but even this rate of progress was not main- tained during the month of September, and work was completely suspended from 19th to 22nd inclusive.

Work on the fixing of the tiles to the roof of the pier was also suspended from 1st to 7th August, while, at various times, difficulties have been experienced in obtaining and delivering granite from the quarry.

Enquiries have been made into the causes of these delays, and from information obtained, it would appear that in all cases the contractors have failed to fulfil their assurances in regard to financial matters.

There has been no delay in providing drawings from this office, as they had been completed before tenders were invited, while copies of each were handed to the contrac- tors at the time the contract was signed on 22nd March, 1923.

During the period of testing the foundations by Mr. Duncan's office, the contrac- tors had eight months to prepare stone at the quarry, and have had nine months since commencing actual building operations on the site-a period of seventeen months which is more than reasonable for carrying out a contract of this type.

The work at present is not quite completed up to the level of the crown of the arches, and the value of the work done to date is approximately equal to half the value of the total contract.

The question of cancelling this contract has been carefully considered and though another contractor would probably carry out the work with more expedition, there would be a suspension of the work during the period required to adjust the prices and fix up a new contract, and as these negotiations might be of a protracted nature the final date of completion would probably be later than by continuing under the present conditions, assuming that the present rate of progress although slow be maintained.
