INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM BANGKOK, COLOMBO, MANILA, SAIGON, SHANGHAI AND SINGAPORE IN THE MATTER OF THE CHARGE MADE FOR WATER AND THE STEPS TAKEN TO CHECK WASTAGE OF WATER,

Addressing the Legislative Council on 23rd September, 1929. His Excellency the Governor (Sir Cecil Clementi) said: "I am informed that the price of water in this Colony is cheap by comparison with prices charged elsewhere. I am collecting data on this sub- ject and will place the statistics, when procured, before this Council". The information now appended, with a covering minute by Mr R. M. Henderson of the Public Works Department, is required primarily in connection with certain proposals for General mete- rage in Hong Kong which are now under consideration, but is published, together with a short account of the existing Hong Kong system, in accordance with the undertaking quoted above.

Hon. D. P. W.,

I attach herewith a resumé of the information regarding the waterworks of the Cities of Bangkok, Colombo, Manila, Saigon, Shanghai and Singapore which has been re- ceived in reply to the letters of enquiry despatched last year.

It is impossible to tabulate this information owing to its diversity, so I have arranged it very shortly under general headings.

With one exception, Shanghai, all the Systems under review are directly con- trolled by Government or Municipal Authorities and, without exception, give a continuous supply throughout the twenty-four hours inside houses. The only restriction admitted is by means of a reduction in pressures, a method which can only be adopted by cities having alternative supplies.

It would appear that with the exception of Colombo, all Authorities are moving towards General Meterage while one, Singapore, has already reached that position and three others, Manila, Saigon and Bangkok are already very largely metered.

Each city has its own problem to solve and the Rates and Charges vary very greatly accordingly. Thus in Shanghai and Bangkok where the supply is taken from large rivers and is therefore more or less unlimited the metered rates are designed to en- courage consumption there being a fall in price with a rise in consumption. On the con- trary Singapore, which is supplied from costly Reservoirs, has made the rates for large consumers high to encourage economy.

The charge for water in Colombo is almost entirely included in the rates, but trade supplies are metered and many additional charges, such as for motor cars, are levied.

The charges in Shanghai for domestic supplies are largely based on Assessment, being unmetered, but trade supplies are metered and are charged for at unit rates.

The charges in Bangkok, Manila, Saigon and Singapore are almost all by unit as these cities are very largely metered.

In Colombo, Manila and Saigon accounts are rendered quarterly, but in Shanghai and Singapore accounts are rendered monthly. In Bangkok large accounts are rendered monthly and small accounts quarterly.

66

In Singapore all consumers must keep a credit balance on deposit with the Muni- cipality and this method is also operated in Shanghai but only for small supplies.

In Bangkok, Colombo, Manila and Saigon no deposit is required.

Waste detection and prevention in all cases more or less follow the orthodox practice of Deacon Waste Water Meters and periodic inspection of plant by Inspectors. General Meterage is mentioned as being considered one of the greatest waste prevention. devices.

On the whole the information received while interesting has added little to the data already available and of the systems outlined that of Singapore would appear to be the nearest to our requirements.

In

With the exception of Bangkok and Saigon all the above cities appear to split up supplies into too many categories though local conditions may make this necessary. the case of Hong Kong this would not appear necessary or desirable and it would be bet- ter in my opinion to group supplies under as few headings as possible.

Six Foreign Inspectors are employed for checking purposes.

The number of accounts is about 15,000 per month and about 15% are paid directly by the Consumer.

The Company requires a deposit, sufficient to cover three months' supply, from all Consumers, except landlords of large blocks of Chinese houses or of large business premises. The larger portion of the revenue is obtained from unmetered supplies.

Waste Detection and Prevention.

During the last twenty four years the consumption has increased from 9 to 32 gallons per head per day.

The Company intend to introduce general meterage at an early date to

combat the considerable waste which exists

Deacon Waste Water Meters have been installed on the mains for leakage detection purposes and a night and day staff is maintained.

Collection of Revenue.

A rate of 4% is included in the Municipal Rates for Water and this revenue is credited to the Waterworks department Revenue. There is no free allowance

All services are metered but before a supply is turned on a deposit must be made by the Consumer equal to the estimated charges for a period of three months.

Accounts showing the monthly consumption of water and the sum remaining at credit of cach consumer are rendered monthly.

The consumer is notified when his deposit is nearing exhaustion and a further deposit is requested. Should the Consumer fail to make the deposit the supply is cut off.

No account is allowed to show a debit balance and thus bad debts are neg- ligible.

Waste Detection and Prevention.

The City is divided into sections controlled by waste water meters and visible mains are patrolled weekly and some daily.

Periodical surveys are carried out in each district in conjunction with the

waste water meters.

All supplies must comply strictly with the Ordinance and Bylaws and ma- terials must be passed and stamped by the Water Department before being used. Services both under construction and on completion are inspected.

All services being metered makes each consumer his own Inspector as regards his own service and this is regarded as one of the most important waste prevention measures in force.

Type of Supply

In the City of Victoria.

Services are permitted in all houses, but by means of the Rider Mains an in- termittent supply can be given to the more densely populated areas. in times of shortage. In times of drought the Rider Mains can be shut off and a supply by street fountains substituted in the Rider Main Areas. Approximately 66% of the annual consumption is unmetered.

In Kowloon.

There are no Rider Mains, but any property can have a metered service sub- ject to satisfactory guarantee.

About 50% of the supply is now metered, the balance being taken from street fountains.

Rates and Charges.

A water rate of 2% on the rateable valuation is levied on all properties, with certain exceptions, within water supply areas

Properties supplied by Rider Mains are unmetered and therefore obtain free

water.

Metered properties which pay the 2% rate receive a free quarterly allowance which, at 40 cents per 1,000 gallons, would be equal to 1% of the annual rateable valuation.

Generally, consumption in excess of the free allowance is charged for at 75 cents per 1,000 gallons, (Peak properties pay $1.00 per 1,000 gallons) whether for trade or domestic purposes.

The following special rates are charged:

COLLECTION OF REVENUE.

Quarterly accounts are prepared by the Water Department and collected by the

Treasury.

Payment is enforced by disconnecting the supply after several warnings and this is generally effective.

Owners are held responsible, by guarantee, for payment of all water charges.

Deposits are required from Water Boat Companies and Contractors requiring build- ing supplies also from tenants, when by special arrangement their guarantee is accepted.

Your Excellency,

HONG KONG.

REPORT OF CURRENCY COMMITTEE, 1930.

We, the Currency Committee appointed by Your Excellency's predecessor, the Hon. Mr. W. T. Southorn, c.M.G., Officer Administering the Government, have the honour to submit for Your Excellency's consideration the following report :—

INTRODUCTORY.

General.

1. We were appointed on the 28th of April, 1930, to make investigation with a view to supplying answers to the following questions, which represented our terms of reference :-

(a) Is the present currency the most advantageous for the purposes of

the trade of this Colony?

(b) In what respects, if any, is the present currency situation in the

Colony unsatisfactory?

(c) If the situation is unsatisfactory in what way can it be remedied? (d) Is the premium on notes over silver detrimental to the prosperity of the Colony? If so can it be controlled and by what means? (e) Is the linking of the currency with silver advantageous to the

Colony? If so can it be more closely linked?

(f) Is it desirable in the interests of the Colony that the value of the dollar be stabilised? If so can any effective steps be taken to that end?

2. We issued in the newspapers a general invitation to the public to put for- ward their views and support them, if required, by oral evidence; we regret however to have to record our disappointment that this advertisement evoked only the most meagre response, and the opportunity thus offered was not availed of at all by ad- vocates of a stabilised currency. We also issued individual invitations to persons who, we considered, were specially qualified to shed light on various aspects of the subject, and who were representative of all interested sections of the community. We received the written views of many of the principal merchants' and bankers' associations both Chinese and European in the Colony. We have also had before us the report of the Straits Currency Committee of 1903, of the Royal Commission on Indian Currency and Finance of 1926, and of the recent Kemmerer Commission in China. In all we have heard ten representative witnesses orally and held nine meet- ings.

3. All written evidence we have received, and all memoranda previously writ- ten on the subject, to which we have had occasion to refer in this report, are printed as annexures in Part III. The minutes of those meetings at which oral evidence was heard form Part IV. To complete the data before us, and for ease of reference, we have appended in Part II all relevant Hong Kong ordinances and extracts from the supplemental Charters of the Chartered Bank, as well as a copy of the Order-in- Council by which the present currency system of the Colony is established.

Historical.

4. Whilst Hong Kong was still a settlement under Her Majesty's Plenipoten- tiary and Chief Superintendent of the Trade of British Subjects in China, a hetero- geneous collection of coins consisting of Spanish, Mexican and other dollars, East India Company's rupees and copper Chinese cash was proclaimed the circulating me-

dium.

5. Shortly after the island was constituted a Colony, Mexican and other Re- publican dollars were on the 27th of April, 1842, proclaimed the standard currency of the Colony in all Government and Mercantile transactions.

}

102

6. On the 1st of May, 1845, by proclamation the gold, silver and copper coins of the United Kingdom, as well as Company's coins, were admitted to circulate side by side with silver dollars This system persisted for some years, but as Government accounts were kept in sterling and revenue was received in coins of all kinds, its inconvenience led first of all in 1853 to an abortive proposal to oust dollars in favour of a sterling currency, and finally in 1863, to a proclamation whereby Mexican dol- lars and other silver dollars of equivalent value that might from time to time be au- thorised became the only legal tender of payment.

7. It is interesting to note that about this time the coining of a new Hong Kong dollar was undertaken in Hong Kong, but lapsed after about $2,000,000 had been minted. This type of dollar is now obsolete and so rare as to be considered a curio. A new type, the British Trade dollar, afterwards came into popularity and its coinage was undertaken in India and London.

8. The present currency of the Colony was established by an Order-in-Council proclaimed in 1895, which we have reprinted in full in Part II, and which explains fully the nature of the legal tender coins. It is noteworthy that the Mexican dollar is made the standard, to which the British or any other dollar should conform if it is to be accorded equality of status. The Order-in-Council is noteworthy also as ordain- ing that, in the absence of express agreement to the contrary, in all contracts and transactions involving liability to pay money, payment should be made in the standard coin of the Colony.

9. There are practically no restrictions on the minting of British dollars by any one who is willing to pay the seigniorage. It is estimated that in all about 230,000,000 British dollars have from time to time been minted, many of which must by now have gone into the melting pot. Mexican dollars are not now minted, but are held as deposits against the issue of notes, and China must have absorbed a vast number of them. Of Mexican dollars also a large proportion must by now have been melted down. When the British Silver dollar was re-admitted into free circula- tion towards the end of 1929, its minting and importation into the Colony were resum- ed, and it is estimated that 24,000,000 of these have come in since that time, as well as $6,000,000 Mexican from Shanghai It is estimated that another 10,000,000— 15,000,000 British dollars may arrive in the near future. The total amount of coined dollars of various kinds deposited in the custody of the Hong Kong Government against note-issue by the three issuing banks was $57,600,000 at the end of April, 1930. There are also subsidiary coins issued by the Hong Kong Government in circulation sufficient in amount for the purposes required. The nominal amount of these in eir- culation at the end of the year 1929 was $17,914,370 and their market value stood practically at par; the amount of subsidiary coins in stock at the same date was about $1,800,000.

Bank Notes Issued in Hong Kong.

10. We have reprinted in Part II the Hong Kong Ordinances governing the ordinary and excess issue of notes by the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corpora- tion and the Mercantile Bank as well as those portions of the Charter and Supplemental Charters of the Chartered Bank, which govern the note issues of that institution and the security therefor. The latest date up to which these banks are at present em- We would invite powered to issue notes in the Colony is the 12th of July, 1939 particular attention to the requirement in the case of the Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Corporation of the deposit of an amount of coin never less than one-third of the total issue in circulation, a practice also followed by the Chartered and Mercantile Banks in regard to their Hong Kong issues, and also to the fact that the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation and the Chartered Bank have the option of secur- ing a part of their issues by a deposit of bullion. Another significant feature of the system of note-issue in Hong Kong is that the Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Cor- poration enjoys an authority, not shared by the other banks of issue, whereby it may exceed its statutory limit to any amount by the deposit of an amount of coin or bul- lion equivalent to the value of the excess notes issued. The effect of this is that when the limits of the other two issuing banks have been reached any large emergency de- mand may only be met by the Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Corporation.

11. The privilege of issuing notes in the Colony was granted to the Chartered Bank in 1853, to the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation in 1866, and to the Mercantile Bank in 1911. The understanding or convention, by which notes be- came accepted in all banking, mercantile and revenue transactions almost as the sole medium of exchange apart from subsidiary coins, is said to date from about 1890 onwards; it subsequently became in fact a tacit agreement not to observe too strictly the terms of the 'Order-in-Council of 1895. The acceptance of this convention was almost universal and any attempt to depart from it by meeting obligations with coin tended to be suppressed by reciprocating in kind. The total daily average amount of notes of the three issuing banks in circulation during the month of April 1930 was over 911 million dollars.

History of the so-called Premium on Notes.

12. The phenomenon of the local bank note or promise to pay becoming cap- able of purchasing a greater quantity of another currency than the number of silver dollars which it promises to pay could purchase has been a recurrent attribute of Hong Kong currency in a greater or less degree for at least thirty years; but the per- centage of this premium caused no serious inconvenience till 1908 when on it rising to 34% a move was suggested to remedy it by an unlimited Government note issue. as had been attempted in the Straits some years previously. At the suggestion of the Secretary of State for the Colonies this project for a Government note issue was abandoned, and the difficulties were solved for the time being by granting in 1911 the Mercantile Bank the privilege of note issue. During the war and post-war periods, when the price of silver was high, the problem did not arise; but after 1926, when silver declined in value, the divergence became marked, until in September, 1929, it represented a difference of 20%. The course of the premium is traced by Professor Robertson, Mr. Ferguson and Mr. Breen in their memoranda in Part III. Mr. Breen also gives an account of the attempts made to remedy a situation, which was becoming more and more difficult to handle, as the continued fall in the value of silver tended to aggravate the premium in so far as the rate of exchange in the Colony lagged in following silver on the downward course. Subsequent action by Govern- ment to assist in remedying the situation by reducing the stamp duty on bank notes to the extent of requiring not more than 1% per annum on $45,000,000 of the ag- gregate bank note-issues of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation is evidenced by the correspondence with the associated non-issuing banks, (printed in Part III), which culminated in Government Notification No. 625 of 1929, (also printed in Part III). The premium still persists however to quite an appreciable degree as silver keeps dropping.

REPLY TO THE QUESTIONNAIRE FORMING THE TERMS

OF REFERENCE:

(a) Is the present currency the most advantageous for the purposes of the trade of the Colony?

13. We have found it difficult to keep our treatment of this

of this question separate from that of questions (e) and (f), and our answers to these questions must be read as complementary one to another. We have assumed that by "present currency" is meant generally the currency established on a silver basis by the Order in-Council of 1895, and that there is no immediate reference in the question to the tangible shapes which this currency has taken, the disadvantages and unsatis- factory features of which are dealt with in our reply to question (b). We note also that the scope of the question is limited to trade, a term which we understand as connoting the business of financing, manufacturing, buying and selling goods,-and does not extend except indirectly to the individual or collective interests of any other persons than traders.

14. Prefacing so much, we have from the evidence received, to reply to the first question in the affirmative, so long as China uses a currency based on silver.

104

15. Our view in this respect has the support of all the evidence taken by us except that of two witnesses. One of these, who is Professor of Economics at Hong Kong University, favoured a change to a gold basis even if China remained on a silver basis, being inclined to discount the disabilities to trade which a change to gold would involve; the other, who is Chief Manager of a shipbuilding firm in the Colony, considered the present currency unsatisfactory because of the effect the fluctuations in the price of silver had in making it difficult to estimate sterling costs in his business, or to keep a firm offer open for the length of time required between tendering and acceptance, and also to finance ships after construction; he advocated therefore some measure of stabilisation, though he would not go so far as to say we should depart from the silver basis before China did so.

16. It may be apposite here to recapitulate very briefly the arguments upon which traders both past and present--(se especially the memoranda of Messrs. Mackie and Russell Nos. 34 and 35 in Part III),-rely to show how any attempt to base the currency on any other metallic standard of value than that used in China would be harmful to the trade and thus indirectly to the general welfare of the Colony. They are as follows:-

(i) Hong Kong is not a producing but a transit centre; its exports and imports are almost entirely on China's account; the trade which it handles is in reality China's trade. In spite of the fact that all countries from which imports come and to which exports go are now on a gold basis, and that there is a great improvement nowadays in the speeding up of communications between the Colony and China, it still is of the utmost importance that the Colony's currency should conform as closely as possible to that of China, and that unnecessary exchange transactions be eliminated.

(ii) The ill-effects of any diverge ice are amply shown when a high premium exists on Hong Kong exchange and drives business past the Colony to Shang- hai. It naturally follows that these ill-effects would be accentuated by making a clean break between the two currencies.

(iii) If Hong Kong had a currency based on gold with China's currency still remaining on a silver basis, merchants fear that the financing of trade would tend to gravitate towards China, where a direct exchange transaction could be effected and bargains struck readily to the exclusion of Hong Kong as an intermediary. Trade might thus pass the Colony, and a centrifugal move- ment might set in, which in the long run would adversely affect the prestige and prosperity of the Colony.

(iv) We do not attach much weight to certain other objections which were mentioned to us. For instance, some feared that Chinese merchants, being traditionally accustomed to handle silver, might prefer to continue to do so, and move their businesses elsewhere rather than adjust their methods to the new currency. Again it has been stated that there is the possibility in the event of a marked appreciation of the price of silver that the Colony would forfeit a great portion of its silver token coinage to the melting pot.

(b) In what respects if any is the present currency situation in the Colony unsatisfactory?

17. We have concluded,—and are supported in our conclusion by all the evidence before us,--that the currency system of the Colony suffers from the follow- ing faults:-

(i) There is in fact a fluctuating premium on the bank-note over the silver dollar in exchange.

(ii) The silver dollar is itself a most inconvenient medium, being difficult to handle, carry and store.

18. Some witnesses have also expressed dissatisfaction with those provisions of the currency system by which the privilege of note issue is delegated to the somewhat arbitrary control of private banking institutions.

+

105

(c) If the situation is unsatisfactory in what way can it be remedied?

19. As regards remedies for the premium we deal with these fully in our reply to question (d).

20. As regards remedies for the inconvenience attending the use of the silver dollar we consider that this inconvenience might be lessened to some extent, and at the same time the further minting of British dollars stopped, if more advantage were taken of the means that already exist of issuing notes against deposits of bar-silver in Hong Kong or in London. In general the practice of issuing notes against bar-silver seems to us preferable to issuing them against silver dollars. We realise however that many coins may still be needed as currency and that there would be difficulty in dis- posing of those already minted without loss of the cost of making and importing them. We do not favour any attempt to prohibit the minting or importation of British dollars, as such action might simply tend to raise the premium on the note, until some exchange corrective in the form of silver burs is provided.

21. As regards the control of note issue by private banking institutions we have more to say on this topic when we come to discuss the remedies for the premium. Those who are dissatisfied with the system of issue by private banks have suggested to us as alternatives, either that Government should take over the whole note issue, or that it should exercise a much more direct control than it does at present over the issuing banks. We have given careful consideration to their views, but have concluded that much of their dissatisfaction arises from a misapprehension regarding the obligation of the note-issuing banks. Although notes were never legal tender, but were primarily a convenient appendage to the currency, and although the law never contemplated that they should supplant silver dollars, it has come about that a demand for currency is in fact a demand for notes, to supply which in practice entails a pur- chase of gold by a bank of issue. Consequently what the party of demand regards prima facie as an obligation in regard to currency becomes, from the point of view of the party of supply, nothing more or less than an exchange operation, which can only be optional. We doubt whether in the special circumstances of this Colony, from which a large quantity of notes must continually be drained into the hinterland of China, such an obligation could be placed even on Government as a note-issuing authority.

22. We cannot moreover see that in the circumstances of this Colony a Gov- ernment note-issue would have any advantages over a properly controlled private note- issue. On the contrary it might involve Government, and indirectly the taxpayer, in the risks of heavy losses due to fluctuations in the value of silver and securities, risks which bankers, being daily engaged in them, are more competent both to anticipate and cover. A Government note-issue again would involve Government in heavy initial expenditure in laying down notes and building treasuries to hold the reserves against them, and in a constantly recurring charge for the staff of a special note department.

(d) Is the premium on notes over silver detrimental to the prosperity of the Colony? If so, can it be controlled and by what means?

23. We find, and are supported in our finding by all the evidence, that the pre- mium, as a fluctuating and uncertain factor, tends to drive trade past the Colony, and is thus detrimental to its prosperity.

24. The causes from which the premium arises are fully discussed in various memoranda printed in Part III. Briefly summarised they are as follows:-

-

There is a chronic excess of "invisible" exports consisting of Chinese emi- grants' remittances from abroad, which lead to large purchases of gold all round by the banks. Presumably cover in the shape of sales of gold is wanting, and thus the market becomes one-sided. It might have been expected that relief would have been obtained by the resumption of the import of silver dollars, but the difficulties attending their use for inter-bank commitments are still considerable, even though since Octo- ber last year it was agreed between banks to accept them freely. Prior to that date by tacit understanding between banks they were not accepted at all, and consequent- ly no actual exchange corrective existed. The British dollar is current to any large extent only in Hong Kong and its costs through seigniorage and interest are appro- ximately 5%; moreover since the only way of disposing of it elsewhere is by melting it down, to meet the loss thereby incurred, another 3% might have to be added to

}

106

its cost. Consequently, in comparison with the uncoined metal, the silver dollar pos- sesses grave disadvantages, in that its import and export points are widely removed.

27. As regards the possibility and means of controlling this premium, we con- sider that if the issuing banks here were to give out notes freely in exchange for legal silver coins, the exchange level of Hong Kong currency must approximate to sil- ver parity, but, as we have already indicated, the inconveniences attendant on the use of silver dollars discourage the banks of issue from accepting any more of them than is absolutely necessary for their business. If it is assumed that silver parity is maintained in Shanghai, the local quotation for taels day by day against a parity of roughly Tls. 72 accurately indicates the extent of the premium here, but in spite of large imports of British dollars the expected effect of removing the premium or restor- ing a normal tael rate has not followed. An exchange corrective therefore has still to be found.

28. We might here refer in passing to the use of sycee in Shanghai, and re- mark how in spite of its disabilities this medium functions within certain limits as an exchange corrective. The exchange level in Shanghai cannot remain for long too high above the laying-down cost of silver; and again, opposite but natural forces are immediately put in action should the exchange level tend to move too far below the actual value of silver. It may be assumed roughly that, when exchange in Shanghai is quoted at 44% below silver, a point has been reached at which it begins to be pro- fitable to ship sycee and sell it for its silver content. We have previously shown that the export point of the British dollar does not arrive until our exchange falls to over 3% below the price of the silver content of the dollar. Bearing in mind then that as a circulating medium British dollars have a very limited use, and in settlement of inter-bank commitments are far from being acceptable, it occurs to us to put forward the suggestion that some scheme might be agreed upon among the banks whereby bar-silver might be utilised in the place of minted coins in inter-bank settlements. All indications seem to show that there is a glut of silver dollars in the Colony, and if some such scheme for the use of bar-silver could be agreed upon among the banks the loss on seigniorage might be avoided, and it might then be possible to prevent the further indiscriminate minting of British dollars, for minting which permission might be granted by Government only in special circumstances when the note reserves or the Colony's requirements demand a further supply. We do not consider that outside interests should be allowed the latitude permitted under the present system of saddl- ing Hong Kong with superfluous coins in order to gain an immediate profit, a practice which incidentally aggravates the problem for the Colony if and when stabilisation has to be effected.

As the law

29. To give effect to these measures of reform, and provide for that elasticity in the currency which is necessary to meet the growing needs of the Colony, we have arrived at the conclusion, after our examination of all aspects of the ease, that some readjustment may be called for in the restrictions now imposed upon the note-issuing banks. Admittedly the power of note issue possessed by banks involves a serious responsibility on their part to Government, which represents the interests of the pub- lic, and we make the following proposal therefore with some diffidence. stands at present the extent of note issue is limited by the amount of the capital of the bank concerned. Only the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation may issue notes in excess of the statutory limit, and then only under onerous conditions. We think the prescribed limit should be less arbitrary and should be subject to periodical revision, provided always that the banks of issue fully cover their notes by the deposit in the Colony of bullion or silver dollars to the extent of at least one- third, the balance being covered by approved securities deposited entirely under Government control. The public would thus be adequately safe-guarded.

30. As the root of the difficulties in connection with the premium is to be traced to an excess of inward remittances, it is obvious that the recent lowering of the rate of interest allowed by banks on deposits should also in the long run tend to remedy the situation. But owing to the unprecedented fall in silver, overseas Chinese have been induced to make excessively large remittances to Hong Kong with a view to getting the benefit from an expected rise in exchange, and it may be some time therefore before the action of the banks will make itself fully felt.

107

(e) Is the linking of the currency with silver advantageous to the Colony? If so can it be more closely linked?

31. We consider that we have supplied sufficient answers to these questions in our remarks in reply to question (a), where we imply that as long as China links her currency to silver so long must it be advantageous to the Colony to do likewise. In the preceding paragraphs we have indicated the means by which a closer link may be forged.

(f) Is it desirable in the interests of the Colony that the value of the dollar be stabilised? If so can any effective steps be taken to that end?

32. It is conceded on all hands that stabilisation in currency matters is an ideal which it is most desirable to attain, and, if it could be realised here to the extent to which it has been effected elsewhere, all the problems connected with the Colony's currency would automatically disappear. The only justification for adhering to the existing silver currency is, as we have already fully explained, the fact that Hong Kong is yoked to South China both geographically and commercially, and in the last resort the question becomes a choice of evils: whether the Colony should face the loss of trade, which is apprehended if it adopts a gold basis, or whether it should continue to be buffeted by the fluctuations attendant on the use of silver as a basis for its cur-

rency.

33. We would here emphasize that stabilisation could not be effected at any arbitrary figure but would have to be determined by the value of silver at the time when the change is made, as present holdings of silver must be sold for what they will obtain in the new currency in order to finance that currency. We are not prepared to hazard an opinion as to the sterling price our silver dollar on finally being disposed of would fetch, were stabilisation to be agreed upon, but undoubtedly the price would be much lower than the exchange value of our currency at the time the decision to stabilise was taken. Any attempt therefore to fix arbitrarily the sterling value of the dollar at a higher rate must involve a serious loss, which neither a Government nor any private individual would be prepared to suffer. It is obvious that, during the period of transition towards stabilisation and for long afterwards, trade and com- merce will suffer severe dislocation, but how far-reaching the effects may be, or how quickly the Colony would recover, can only be a matter for conjecture.

34. As regards the future of silver we do not feel confident to express any definite views. But though we fully realise the uncertainties and risks of the situa- tion in this respect, we would deprecate any over-hasty action to effect stabilisation at a figure that subsequent movements in the price of silver might prove to have been ill-advised and disastrous to the best interests of the Colony In this connection it may not be out of place to repeat the evidence given by American interests before the Royal Commission on Indian Currency and Finance in May 1926, when with regard to the effect of the price of silver on the world's production it was stated that, should the price of silver fall to 50 U.S. gold cents per ounce, 20% of the world's pro- duction would be made unprofitable, whilst a fall to 333 cents per ounce would make 58% unprofitable. It was also pointed out at the same time that the reduction of output would probably not follow immediately on the decline of prices. These remarks might well be taken in conjunction with the views of the Chairman of the Shanghai British Chamber of Commerce, who in February last in a letter addressed to the Chinese Minister of Commerce and Industry, Nanking, made the following

statement:

"The present stocks of silver in Shanghai would be insufficient to finance

China's trade, were such trade normal”.

35. Finally since China has now worked out through the agency of the Kem- merer Commission a complete and detailed scheme, whereby in more propitious cir- cumstances she may make the change to a gold standard currency, we consider that it is of the utmost importance that Hong Kong, as being unable herself to exercise any control over the price of silver, should be in a position to anticipate such a move on the part of the last remaining user of silver on a large scale. Although we cannot see that China will be able to take this step in the immediate future and although we are rather disposed to regard China's desire for a gold standard for the time being as a pious hope, since any such scheme in the nature of things must entail the reor- ganisation of her political and fiscal machinery and the obtaining of large financial credits from outside, nevertheless Hong Kong should not be found unprepared for

- 108

such an event in China, or she might find herself a holder of much-cheapened silver, a situation too disastrous to contemplate.

36. We recommend therefore that all available data should as soon as possible be placed before expert opinion with a view to the formulating and having in read- iness a feasible scheme worked out in detail whereby the transfer of the Colony's cur- rency from a silver to a gold basis may be effected as smoothly and with as little trouble and expense as possible, in case a sudden change-over be forced upon the Colony.

37. Although it is premature at the present stage to indicate what gold- currency unit should be adopted by Hong Kong, our close business relations with China require us to stress the advisability of this Colony adopting a monetary unit identical with that of our neighbours, following the example set in this respect by Canada with regard to the United States of America.

38. In conclusion we desire to add that, since our terms of reference confined our enquiry primarily to a consideration of the effects of the Colony's currency upon trade, we have refrained purposely from commenting on the hardships of residents and others financially interested in the Colony, who are losing heavily owing to the unprecedented fall in the price of silver, but we trust that the omission may not be construed as implying any lack of sympathy with these sufferers.

39. We desire to express our thanks to our Secretary, Mr. T. Megarry, of the Hong Kong Cadet Service, for the capable way in which he performed his many and arduous duties, and also to Miss V. R. Harrison, for her assistance in the secre- tarial work.

We have the honour to be,

Reservations by the Hon. Dr. R. H. Kotewall, C.M.G., LL.D.

I have signed this report with two reservations:

A.-Currency Advisory Board.

1. In paragraph 21 of the report alternative suggestions for the better control of the Colony's note-issue are mentioned. They are (a) that the Government should take over the note-issue, and (b) that it should exercise a more direct control over the note-issuing banks than it does at present. Arguments are given in paragraphs 21 and 22 to refute the first suggestion, but no reasons are advanced against the second which seems to me to be of such importance as to merit serious consideration.

Page 94.

2. In paragraph 16 of my memorandum I express the view that, while No. 33 in the first alternative seems, for reasons, given therein, unwise and unnecessary, the Part III, fact that it has been suggested by such important organisation and local residents as the Chinese Bankers' Association, the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce, the Hon. Mr. J. J. Paterson and Mr. R. M. Dyer, C.B.E., indicates that there is a widespread desire on the part of the Public that the Government should not altogether dissociate itself from the control of the note-issue of the Colony.

3. Many business men and bankers consider-and I agree with them-that the present system lays too great and too grave a responsibility upon the managers of the three note-issuing banks. Of these the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, by virtue of its premier position in China, and of the special privilege it enjoys in being allowed by law to issue notes in excess of the statutory limit to any amount under certain specified conditions, exercises the greatest power; and consequently it is upon its Chief Manager that the heaviest responsibility lies in a time of financial crisis. This means that in such a time the welfare of the Colony largely hangs upon the decision of one man. On one or two occasions in the past the Public has asked itself whether the action or inaction of the Bank in the matter of note-issue was to the best interests of the Colony as a whole. The Public has the right to expect that the note-issue, upon which the prosperity of the Colony depends to so great an extent, should not be subject to the will of one single individual. At the present moment Hong Kong is fortunate in having at the head of its chief bank a man of large vision, but it requires to be safeguarded against the man of narrow views, who may at another time occupy the same position. In other words, we trust the man in power to-day, but we mistrust the system that confers a position of such power. It may be interesting to note that in paragraph 29 of the report, the Committee expresses the view that "admittedly the power of note-issue possessed by banks involves a serious responsibility on their part to Government, which represents the interests of the Public.'

4. Sharing this view, and in the absence of other schemes for a better control of the note-issue, I recommend the establishment of an Advisory Board that could in a time of financial crisis advise the Government (and, incidentally, the note-issuing banks) what steps should be taken to meet the situation. The fact that the Colony would then be prepared for an emergency by the existence of a body of experts (some of whom at least would be disinterested and independent parties) ready to study any problem and explore all avenues for remedial measures, would be sufficient justification for my recommendation.

5. I should mention that the proposal to institute this Board has the support of two other members of the Committee.

6. In view of my recommendation, I am unable to subscribe to the view expressed in the last sentence of paragraph 29-"The Public would thus be ade- quately safeguarded"-unless it is modified by the addition of the words: "but in the opinion of three members of the Committee, the establishment of an Advisory Board is necessary for full security."

110

B.-Stabilisation.

7. My second reservation concerns the question of the stabilisation of the dollar. While the other members of this Committee advise in paragraph 36 that "all available data should......be placed before expert opinion with a view to the formulating and having in readiness a feasible scheme......whereby the transfer of the Colony's currency from a silver to a gold basis may be effected......

... in case a sudden change-over be forced upon the Colony", I am of the opinion that expert advice should be sought as to whether this Colony can now, or at some future date, safely adopt the gold basis, even if China does not take the same course.

8. From paragraph 27 of my memorandum it will be seen that I, too, have reached the conclusion that the time is unpropitious for Hong Kong to change to a gold basis, but that I feel that if we were to do so even before China, the result might not be as harmful to the Colony as it is feared. I should like here to call attention to the arguments in favour of stabilisation which I have collected from various sources and arranged in paragraph 26 of my memorandum.

9. I have a great respect for the opinion of my colleagues on the Committee, appreciating their technical knowledge of the subject, and their ripe experience of business and banking conditions in Hong Kong and China. At the same time I feel that the Colony ought not to rely solely upon the opinion of this Committee in attempting to dispose of the problem which affects the very life blood of the Colony's trade. I hold the view that the question should be referred for advice to the highest possible experts whose disinterestedness and lack of bias cannot be questioned.

A Committee was formed in 1928 to consider the basis on which the tax on motor vehicles should be assessed. The Committee recommended a tax on horse- power. This is, however, not considered to be a satisfactory form of motor taxation and it has since been decided that the best method would be to place a tax on petrol leaving the annual registration fees based on the weight of the vehicle, or in the case of public vehicles at a nominal figure with a seating tax.

REPORT OF THE PLAYING FIELDS COMMITTEE.

No. 1930

2

Your Excellency,

We, the Playing Fields Committee, have the honour to submit to Your Excellency our report as follows:-

1. We were appointed a Committee on the 4th of May, 1929, with the following terms of reference :-

"To review the provision at present existing for playing fields in Hong Kong and on the Mainland, to consider what provision is required for the future and to make recommendations to Government in the matter.

General.

2. We held our first meeting on the 14th of May, 1929, and after settling our method of procedure and arranging for visits to playing field areas we adjourned to give time for the collection of information and the preparation of plans. Owing first to the absence of the Chairman and subsequently to his engagement on more urgent public work it was not possible for the Committee to resume its deliberations until the 4th of November last. We have held nine meetings including two visits of inspection to present and sng- gested areas for playing fields in the Colony.

3. We took steps to ascertain the views of all interested parties by public advertise- ment in the English and Chinese newspapers, by a circular questionnaire addressed to Clubs, and by hearing evidence from persons who wished to appear before the Committee on behalf of their organisations or who were invited by the Committee to assist in elucidat- ing aspects of the various problems which were being considered.

4. We realize that the subject committed to our consideration is one of much immediate interest to the population of Victoria and Kowloon and of the utmost import- ance for the future. The necessity for adequate open spaces whether as 'lungs in areas over-crowded with buildings or as playing fields for the younger generation of town dwellers has been realized only in recent years, and this has been particularly the case in Hong Kong where the games spirit has been a recent and very rapid growth of modern times among the large Chinese population of the Colony. The inevitable result has been that the City of Victoria is to-day entirely inadequately supplied either with 'lungs' or with playing fields and even in modern Kowloon there are areas without suf- ficient 'lungs'. It is too late now to remedy the mistakes of the past in Victoria and in some parts of Kowloon except at prohibitive cost, but we are fortunately just in time to prevent similar mistakes in the undeveloped areas of Kowloon.

5. With the example of Victoria before us we have not hesitated to make gener- ous recommendations for Kowloon. We realize that much of the land recommended for reservation is or will be valuable building land, but we have made our recommendations advisedly in order to preserve oases in what may one day become a world of bricks and `mortar. It was to such foresight and to such thought for the future that we owe the beauty of the London Squares and we should like to see Kowloon no less generously provided with open spaces. We have been impressed with the rapidity of the growth of Kowloon and we feel that a provision which may appear excessive to-day may possibly prove inadequate even within our own generation.

38

6. We have not overlooked the fact that the full realisation of our proposals will involve both time and money and indeed more money than the Colony is likely to be able to afford for many years. We regard it however as being of immediate and paramount. importance that adequate areas for 'lungs' and playing fields should be permanently reserved, by legislation if necessary, and so saved from alienation for building purposes. We have indicated the areas which appear to us to be necessary for this purpose and we have endeavoured, where possible, to minimize the loss which these reservations will cause to the public revenue by excluding from our reservations the more valuable building frontages.

7. Throughout our enquiries and in formulating our recommendations we have been guided by the following principles :-

(a) Where there is at present ground only temporarily allowed to be used for the purpose of playing games, to consider whether such ground should be permanently given over for this purpose, or whether it could not more advantageously in the Colony's interest be used in some other way, e.g. for building purposes, and alternative areas found in districts less valuable from a building point of view.

(b) Where there are permanent playing fields at present existing to consider whether they could not be extended, or whether better use for games could not be made of them than that to which they are now put.

(c) In areas still awaiting development to consider what ground it was practic- able to make available with little expense almost immediately, both to relieve congestion elsewhere and to provide for the future needs of the growing districts in which they are situated, and at the same time to consider whether any other land on the outskirts of these districts might be reserved against more distant contingencies and not for immediate

use.

(d) In the already thickly-populated urban districts to consider what open spaces might still be preserved as smaller children's playgrounds and generally as 'Jungs' to the various localities, or for use as places on which games, occupying little space, might be organized for school boys and others in the neighbouring streets.

(e) To leave as far as possible to the discretion of the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee all detailed questions of individual allotments to Clubs and individual periods of tenure and to make only a general re- commendation in the matter of tenure.

HONG KONG.

ADEQUACY OF PRESENT LARGE GROUNDS AND FRESH

PROVISION FOR THE FUTURE.

8. We find that since 1925 the larger portions of an already formed building site at Caroline Hill of approximately 10 acres in extent have been allotted on annual permit to two Clubs as playing fields. We understand that this site was intended originally to be the site for the new Queen's College for which other sites have since been considered while the building of the College has been postponed for financial reasons, that, including part of the cost of the approach road, the sum of $214,000 has already been spent by Govern- ment on its formation, and that if the whole area was cleared and made suitable for recreation purposes and other incidental expenses met, the total cost of the site would amount to not less than $260,000. We understand further that the value of the site as building land is approximately 1 million dollars. We have, noticed that this area is situated in a district of which a very large portion is devoted to playing fields, and that there are open spaces all around, Happy Valley, Queen's Recreation Ground and Soo- kunpoo Recreation Ground all being in the immediate neighbourhood.

9. We find on the other hand that in the Aberdeen Valley there is a large tract of flat Crown land at present held by cultivators in small lots on short term permits, and that an additional large flat area might be obtained by reclaiming the swamp at the inner end of Aberdeen Channel and placing a causeway across the estuary here at a spot indicated by the Director of Public Works whilst still leaving ample room for the shelter of Chinese small craft in rough weather. We understand that there have been various proposals made in past years for the development of this land as a garden city, a race course, or a golf course, but we are of opinion that it would be best utilized as an area for Playing Fields..

10. The Director of Public Works has furnished us with a plan showing such land in this neighbourhood as might most suitably and cheaply be formed, levelled, and reclaimed for the purpose on the south side of the motor road. We understand that an area of 35 acres might be levelled and the earth deposited as filling on a further 55 acres making a total of 90 acres. With regard to cost we understand that a road diversion would cost about $35,000, nullah-training which would be indispensable, would cost about $300,000, and the work of levelling, constructing a causeway across the channel, and turfing about $675,000 making a total of about $1,010,000. The work would take from three to five years to complete, if the scheme was undertaken as a whole, according to the nature of the ground to be excavated and filled in.

11. Since therefore for less than the price as building land of an area of at most 10 acres at Caroline Hill an area of at least nine times that extent might be made available for playing fields in Aberdeen Valley, we recommend :—

(a) That Government should proceed to dispose of Caroline Hill in due course as opportunity offers, for building purposes, and that the proceeds. should be used to develop the Aberdeen area. We agree that the method of disposing of the Caroline Hill area for sale must be left to the con- sideration of Government, and until steps are taken in this direction, we recommend that the area should remain as now available for playing fields and continue to be allotted for short periods.

(b) That whether or not Government is willing to provide the funds by the sale of Caroline Hill, it should as funds permit undertake the work of forming and laying out for playing fields the whole area in the Aberdeen Valley, as shown marked on the plan which is attached to this report as Appendix I. We do not consider that road diversion is essential to the project in its early stages.

(c) That if Government cannot see its way immediately or in the near future to undertake at the cost of public funds the whole project, it should begin as soon as possible with the work of training the nullah and with such site- formation as might be connected therewith. Should any Clubs then be desirous of taking up playing fields sites in the valley in accordance with an approved lay out, forming the sites at their own expense, we recommend that Government should facilitate such projects by the grant of long leases at a nominal rental with a guarantee of reasonable re-imbursement if it should be necessary to resume the land before the expiry of the lease. (d) That as the usefulness of the Aberdeen Valley area for playing fields would depend largely on convenience of access the Government should construct a short-cut suitable for motor traffic from Wongneichong Gap to Aberdeen. We understand that a suitable trace following generally the lines of the bridle path is possible, and that the distance from Wongneichong Gap to the new playing fields at Aberdeen Valley could thus be reduced by about one half. We understand that the making of this road would add $100,000 to the cost of the scheme outlined above.

12. In making the above recommendations we wish it to be understood that we do not imply that the development of the Aberdeen Valley scheme is to be entirely dependent on money being made available from the sale of Caroline. Hill but rather that the sale of Caroline Hill offers a means of financing the more expeditious completion of the scheme by Government.

READJUSTMENTS OF AND EXTENSIONS TO PRESENT AREAS AT

HAPPY VALLEY AND QUEEN'S RECREATION GROUNDS.

13. We have given very careful consideration to the question of how the area at present allotted to the Polo Club at Queen's Recreation Ground could most fairly and usefully be employed for the purposes of recreation, and have heard evidence in detail from all points of view on this subject. We have noticed that whilst this area is on the one hand nominally reserved for a comparatively small body, viz., the playing members of the Polo Club, in reality it forms a playground for many hundreds of children of the locality, when not in actual use for polo, and we are informed that the Polo Club has offered the use of the ground for other games on the whole of Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year when the ground is not ordinarily used by the Polo Club and subject to no serious damage being done to the turf. We realize further the importance of the game of Polo in the training of Army Officers and would be loth to do anything that would impede the continued existence of the game in the Colony. We understand from the Club's repre- sentatives however that if an alternative ground is offered in the Aberdeen Valley the Club would have no objection to transferring there, its stables remaining where they are now and ponies being walked out to the new ground prior to play.

"

14. We recommend therefore that when a space is made available in the Aberdeen Valley, the Polo Club, as now occupying ground which might more suitably be allotted to other clubs with more numerous membership, should be re-allotted a ground at Aberdeen, and that meanwhile the Polo Club should continue in the use of its present ground.

We would deprecate however the strict fencing in of the present ground by any new allottees. in such a way as to prevent its present use as a playground by the children of the neighbourhood unless an alternative public playground is provided.

We

15. We have been struck with the very congested state of the ground at present used by various cricket clubs and a football club at the north end of Happy Valley. recommend therefore that as large an area as possible of the land at the base of Morrison Hill at the junction of Morrison Hill Road and Gap Road should be reserved as an open space to provide for extensions of the overcrowded playing field area now occupied by the 'Civil Service,' the 'Police', the 'Craigengower' and 'Hong Kong Football' Clubs.

16. It has been represented to us that the stables of the Mounted Infantry Com- pany on Queen's Recreation Ground detract seriously from the amenities of the Chinese Recreation Club, and prevent much needed extension of the playing fields area in this neighbourhood. We consider that this representation is justified and recommend that Gov- ernment should if possible provide alternative accommodation for these stables elsewhere.

17. With regard to the use by the Royal Hong Kong Golf Club of Happy Valley, we consider that as this was the original home of the Club, and the course here performs in some respects the functions of a municipal golf course, being convenient of access and involving players in the minimum of expense for travelling and thus allowing many to play the game and obtain exercise who could not otherwise afford to do so, the Club should not be required to give up playing here any more than is absolutely necessary. It was suggested to us however, that the club might be willing to forego the use of the ground for perhaps one or two afternoons a week in the summer months so that those. who wish to play football or baseball during the summer might have ground available. We consulted the Golf Club in the matter and it replied that it was willing to give up the use of Happy Valley on Saturday afternoons next summer for one season as an experi- ment. We understand that the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee will make use of this offer in its work of allotment for next season.

18. Our last recommendation in regard to the recreation grounds in the Happy Valley Queen's Recreation Ground district is that when a scheme has materialised for providing further extension of playing fields on the south side of the island at Aberdeen Valley the possibility of locating the Navy Recreation Club on a permanant ground of its own on some of the grounds thus rendered vacant or available on the Victoria side of the island should be given every consideration. In making this recom- mendation we are prompted by the considerations that the Navy has hitherto been unfortunate in having no settled ground of its own, and that it is desirable that the men of the Navy, who cannot afford much in the way of travelling expenses, should have

41

their outdoor recreational facilities convenient to their present indoor headquarters or clubs, and within a reasonable distance from their ships.

19. The Committee devoted special attention to the needs of the Navy in the matter of Recreation Grounds, as the inadequacy of the present position was strongly urged. It was pointed out that during the winter there are sometimes as many as 3,000 Naval ratings to be provided for. The Naval representative considered it to be essential that the grounds provided. should be given on a long enough tenure to justify improvement at the expense of Naval Funds, that they should be within easy access of the Harbour, and preferably on the Hong Kong side on which the Naval Clubs and Canteen are already situated.

20. These requirements do not admit of easy fulfilment and rule out the possibility of meeting the wishes of the Navy by the allocation of grounds at Aberdeen or on the Railway Reservation in Kowloon. The Caroline Hill site would meet Naval requirements but after a full discussion the Committee by a majority vote considered the area to be too valuable for a permanent reservation as a playing field and made the recommendation. for its sale which is set out in paragraph 11 (a) of this report. The only recommenda- tion which the Committee felt able to make on behalf of the Navy is that recommended in paragraph 18.

THE MAINLAND.

PROVISION OF NEW AREAS TO MEET THE NEEDS OF CLUBS WHICH FIND THE

EXISTING FACILITIES IN KOWLOON INADEQUATE AND TO ANTICIPATE THE REQUIREMENTS IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE OF THE RAPIDLY DEVELOPING

MONG KOK, SHAM SHUI PO AND KOWLOON CITY DISTRICTS.

21. We find that to the immediate north and east of the Police Training School on the east side of the Taipo Road and north of Prince Edward Road, and again on the west of the Taipo Road in the same vicinity, there are tracts of already levelled Crown land together with a large expanse of hilly undeveloped land, marked on

on the Town Development Plan as a Park, extending along the east of the railway to the base of the foot-hills on the north. To serve the growing needs of the Sham Shui Po and Mong Kok district we accordingly recommend that on the west of Taipo Road the land bounded by the future Cheung Sha Wan Road, Boundary Street, Wu Chau Street and Wong Chuk Street, and on the east of the Taipo Road the whole of the area behind the building frontages on Taipo and Prince Edward Roads to the immediate north and east of the Police Training School together with the area covered by the Park and the hilly area to the immediate north of the Park, as marked on the plan which forms Appendix II. to this report, should be permanently reserved by Government as recreation grounds. Much of this land is hilly and undeveloped and can only be regarded as reservation for the future development of a Park area for this district. Parts however are already levelled and parts are now being levelled. We recommend that such areas as are at present suitable be at once made available for allocation by the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee. We further recommend that th possibility of utilizing the less developed area as a municipal golf course be explored as soon as the present levelling operations are finished. In this connection we considered a proposal for the formation of a minia- ture golf course but came to the conclusion that is was not likely to meet with popular support.

·

22. We find that at the east end of Argyle Street and extending south to Ma Ton Chung Road there is another area of already levelled Crown land. We have selected a suitable portion of this land, about 20 acres in extent marked on the plan which forms Appendix III and, leaving the building frontage available on Argyle Street and Ma Tau Chung Road, we recommend that Government should permanently reserve this area to serve as a playing field area for the Kowloon City district.

23. We recommend also that a small area should be reserved for allotment as a playing field behind the building frontage of Argyle Street and opposite the Kowloon Hospital on the site originally proposed for a cemetery but now abandoned for this pur- pose. The location of this area is shown n Appendix IV.

42

24. We notice that west of the Diocesan Boys School on the west side of the Rail- way and just by Yaumati Railway station there is a piece of land reserved on the Town Development Plan for a Railway yard. We understand that there is no immediate pro- spect of this land being required for Railway purposes and we recommend that so much of it as can be used as a playground should be made available for allotment on annual permit.

PROVISION FOR THE MORE DISTANT FUTURE.

25. In addition to the above mentioned areas, which might be made almost im- mediately available for use as playing fields on the south side of the Kowloon hills we consider that it is also necessary to bear in mind the needs of the more distant future when Kowloon will have grown into a large city with a teeming population requiring yet more extensive playing field areas. Such areas can only be found on the north of the Kowloon hills and the only possible area convenient of access both by rail and road appears to be afforded by the tidal flats at the head of Tide Cove. We understand that a causeway across the inlet from the present main road near Shatin Railway Station to the opposite shore is projected in connection with the proposed Saikung Road. would afford a convenient opportunity for reclaiming the land above the causeway and while we do not consider that playing field areas are at present required here we strongly recommend that an area of 100 acres be definitely set apart for future playing fields and preserved from alienation. The area should have easy access from Shatin Railway Station and from the motor road. The area should be reserved on the development plans as soon as the exact line of the causeway is settled.

26. With regard to the possible extension of King's Park we note that there is still an area here on the west of that portion of the Park lying to the north of Gascoigne Road which if developed and levelled would afford space for an additional three grounds of the usual size required for a football ground. We recommend that Government should complete the development of this part of King's Park as public playing fields for the Yaumati district.

27. It was suggested to us that the large area in Kowloon at present reserved for cemeteries might be better devoted to an extension of the King's Park playing fields but we do not concur in this suggestion and recommend that this cemetery area should re- main undisturbed.

28. We note that a large area extending from Kowloon Old City northwards and embracing the Kowloon Golf Club's course and the Rifle Range has been marked as per- manently reserved for purposes of a Park and playing fields. We agree that this area should be permanently reserved but we regret that we cannot put forward any useful suggestions for its further development for purposes of recreation until a new site can be found elsewhere for the rifle ranges. We believe it would greatly benefit the recrea- tional facilities in Kowloon if the rifle ranges were transferred and we recommend that Government should use every effort to provide a different location for them in some other part of the Colony.

29. With regard to the Railway reclamation land on the east of Chatham Road extending from Holt's Wharf to the junction of Gascoigne and Chatham Roads, we un- derstand that portions of this land on the west of the line are at present allotted by the Railway Department with the approval of Government to various Clubs, but that the land on the east of the line with the exception of small portions at the north and south ends, the reservation of which for railway purposes is necessary, is vacant and is only occasionally used by the military as a parade ground or as a hockey field. We understand that there is no regular means of approach across the railway from the west side and that there are strong objections on the part of the Railway management to further level crossings over

..

43

the railway or indeed to the use of this land on the east side at all unless it is fenced off from the railway by a high fence. If the area is to be regularly used as playing fields it will be necessary to approach it either from the sea by the erection of a landing stage, which in view of its exposed position would be a somewhat expensive proposition, or by access paths which might be constructed from the Holt's Wharf level-crossing along the side of the railway and from near the Chatham Road railway bridge. We understand further from the Railway Authorities that at least one year's tenure might be promised of any land that might be allotted to a Club here, and that there is every possibility that a Club would be allowed to retain such allotment for longer periods than a Year though no guarantee could be given to that effect.

30. It is realised that the land is reserved for commercial development but there appears to be no prospect of such development in the immediate future and it seems desirable to make use meanwhile of this easily accessible flat land for purposes of re- creation. We recommend therefore :-

(a) That the whole of the available land on the railway reclamation on both sides of the railway, as shown on a plan furnished by the Manager of the Railway (see Appendix V) should be allotted through the permanent Re- creation Grounds Committee annually to such Clubs as might wish to take up a ground there, subject to it being ascertained by the Committee each year before-hand from the Manager of the Railway that the land is still available for allotment.

(b) That Government should fence in the line, or make it a condition of allotment that Clubs should fence off their playing areas from the line at their own expense.

(c) That Government should provide means of access by making a path either from Holt's Wharf level-crossing or from near Chatham Road Railway Bridge or both.

31. We note that there is a part of the present allotment of the Kowloon Cricket Club at King's Park between the Club's bowling green and its cricket field which is unused. We understand that the Club has been keeping this area as a site for a new pavilion, but we consider that pending any such development good use could be made of the ground if it was allotted as a public playground for games requiring little space.

Smaller open spaces in Hong Kong and the Mainland.

32. We recommend generally that Government should bear in mind the great im portance of preserving in already developed areas and reserving in areas as yet unde- veloped as many open spaces or small 'squares' as possible, where the old and young of either sex in the neighbourhood may take the air, and on some of which games such as volleyball and basketball requiring little space might be played by the vernacular schoolboys and other children of the neighbouring houses. We consider also that build- ing land not yet sold or built upon, which we now find in many cases to be let out to market gardeners on temporary permits, might often be made available for purposes of such games pending its development, and we recommend that Government should facilitate the use of such land in this way.

OPEN SPACES IN HONG KONG.

33. Turning to particular small open spaces which we have noted as desirable reservations in the urban areas of Hong Kong we recommend :--

(a) the permanent reservation as a playground for the children of Wanchai of a plot of Crown Land on the Praya East Reclamation to the west of the Fire Station and between Inland Lot 2827 and Inland Lot 2815; see Appendix VI;

44

(b) that Government should take steps to obtain the use of Marine Lot No. 1. at Shaukiwan, situated immediately to the east of Taikoo Dock and at present unoccupied private property, to serve as a playground for the children of Shaukiwan, this being the only suitable area for the purpose that we have been able to discover in this neighbourhood; and

(c) that Government should take measures to restore Blake Gardens, which are at present covered with the débris of the Po Hing Fong land slide, and that as much space as is possible should be left at this spot, above and below the site for the new Police station, to form a pleasant open space, which is essential in this congested area. We consider also that a portion of this ground might be assigned for the playing of games such as basket- ball and volley-ball.

OPEN SPACES ON THE MAINLAND.

34. The matter of the preservation and the future provision of small open spaces on the mainland was carefully investigated by a sub-committee, whose report is annexed (Appendix VII). Having considered the sub-committee's report and made further en- quiries into the practicability of its suggestions we have decided to make the following recommendations:-

(a) That all the open spaces already marked out on the Town Development

Plan for Kowloon should be permanently reserved as such.

(b) That in addition the following further areas should be reserved, subject to acquisition without undue expense where the land is not already public property:

A. In the district south of Austin Road:

(i) The triangular space bounded by Humphreys Buildings, Cameron Build-

ings and Empress Lodge.

(ii) A small portion of the Chater Bungalow site at the junction of Austin Road and Austin Avenue behind the building frontage to serve as a play- ground for small children.

B. In the Yaumati-Mong Kok district :-

(i) An area at the corner of Wai Ching and Saigon Streets of about 6,000 square feet in extent, provided that the land is available for purchase at a reasonable price.

(ii) The area bounded by Canton Road, Battery and Public Square Streets, or if this is required for a new Kowloon Magistracy Building, the site of the present Magistracy Building.

(iii) The small square bounded at present by Waterloo Road, Reclamation

Street, Shanghai Street and the continuation of Sheklung Street.

35. With regard to Ho Mun Tin residential district we recommend that Govern- ment should invite the attention of the Botanical and Forestry Department to the desir- ability of tidying up the small square here and arranging seats at the base of the railway

embankment.

36. We have observed that there is a small piece of unused ground to the south of Prince Edward Road and immediately to the east of the railway bridge. We recommend that this should be allotted for the playing of games requiring little space.

Allotment.

37. Throughout our enquiries we have avoided consideration of any questions in regard to the present or future allotment of grounds to individual clubs and have con-

:

45

fined ourselves to the recommendation of suitable areas for reservation, leaving matters of detailed allocation to the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee, which might allot the new grounds to such clubs as would be willing to develop them and put them in order for play, as we realize that Government is not likely to be able to provide funds to lay out and turf the whole of these grounds for a very long time.

38. With regard to tenure however it has been strongly urged upon us that the system of annual allocation renders the tenure of the areas so insecure that Clubs are naturally disinclined to incur large expenditure on improvements. The development of the new areas suggested in this report should reduce the necessity for restricting the rights of a club to a very short tenure and we consider that it would be in the interests of the recreation facilities of the Colony that Clubs should be granted sufficiently long tenure to make it worth their while to develop their grounds and put permanent buildings upon them, such questions of length of tenure etc., to be settled in each case on the advice of the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee. At the same time we consider that parts of the new areas should be preserved as public playgrounds unallocated to any particular interests and free to all to come and play on.

39. We consider that generally speaking the allotment of all public playing fields and such open spaces as it might be desirable to use for games and such Crown Land as might be temporarily made available for games should be in the discretion of the Re- creation Grounds Committee, subject to the approval of Government, and that it would be much in the interest of all concerned if the annual meeting of this Committee for the purpose of making allotinents could take place in March rather than later in the year.

40. We have only one other recommendation to add on this subject and that is that the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee should give due consideration to the claims of Vernacular Schools for allotments on applications by such schools through the Director of Education.

Provision of Public Tennis Courts.

41. It has been represented to us that there is a numerous class of persons in the Colony, composed of various races, who, having little time or means of obtaining other out-door exercise are anxious to play lawn tennis and yet are prevented by one reason or another from joining tennis clubs, that such people would gladly avail themselves of any public facilities for the game that might be provided, and that the cost of making, supervising, and maintaining a few 'hard' tennis courts would be a very small item of Government special and recurrent expenditure, while it would benefit a large number of people. It has been suggested to us that a beginning might be made with three such courts on the south end of area P. at King's Park, which is at present allotted but un- used except as a public football ground. and with another three courts on some of the ground recommended for use as playing fields in the neighbourhood of Prince Edward Road. A memorandum on this subject by Mr. E. Cock forms appendix VIII to this report.

42. We recommend that Government should endeavour to give effect to this pro- posal and establish public 'hard' tennis courts on these lines. It is suggested that the courts might be looked after hy that branch of the Public Works Department which at present looks after the public bathing beaches and that the open tennis season should coincide with the closed season for bathing.

Games Organisation and 'Playgrounds Association'.

43. It has been represented to us that certain small open spaces both in Hong Kong and on the Mainland might be used with great benefit to the localities in which they are situated if they were devoted to organised games like volleyball and basketball. We understand that for 16 years a small plot of ground at the Chinese Y.M.C.A. in Bridges Street has been so used for organized games under Y.M.C.A. supervision to the great advantage of over 1,000 boys from 10 to 15 schools in the neighbourhood at a comparatively small cost, and that other small schools have followed suit on small plots

46

near their school premises. We understand from Mr. J. L. McPherson the Secretary of the Chinese Y.M.C.A. that if further ground were made available this movement might be extended for the benefit of other school boys and street boys. Mr. McPherson pointed out however that some central organization would be necessary to collect funds for the provision of equipment, to organize and supervise the games and to see that all children had a fair share in the use of the grounds. He suggested that an Association might be formed for this purpose to be called the "Small Playing Grounds Association" to which any available grounds could be allotted by the Recreation Grounds Committee. This Association could employ a Supervisor of Play assisted by volunteer help which we have reason to think would be forthcoming. We are indebted to Mr. McPherson for the memorandum on this subject which forms Appendix IX to this report. We feel that Mr. McPherson's proposal deserves every encouragement both from Government and from the Public, as it is only by the organization of games that full use can be made of public playgrounds provided at public expense for the poorer children of the community. We have learned with much interest of the success which has attended the organization of games on public playgrounds elsewhere and we consider that the idea is capable of very useful development in Hong Kong. We annex to this report as Appendix X a memoran- dum on the organization of games in Colombo kindly furnished by the Chairman of the Colombo Municipality. This memorandum well illustrates the development of which this idea is capable.

Conclusion.

44. Before closing our report .we desire to express our indebtedness to the Honourable the Director of Public Works who provided for us, often at very short notice, plans of the many areas which we had under review from time to time. The large size of the Committee, the great number of areas visited and reviewed, the mass of detail involved and the length of the proceedings at most of the meetings threw very heavy work on the Secretary which he discharged with unfailing courtesy and promptness. We desire to place ou record our high appreciation of his valuable services which have gone far to lighten the burden which fell on the Committee. We also desire to record our appreciation of the services of our stenographer, Miss Ferguson.

We have the honour to be,

Reservation by Hon. Mr. J. P. Braga and Mr. M. K. Lo.

1. We regret the necessity for this reservation but we are unable to sign the Report without it on account of its recommendations relating to Caroline Hill as contained in paragraph 11 (a) and paragraph 12 of that Report, with which we are in disagreement.

:

2. We do not agree to the sale of the Caroline Hill area, at present and for some time past allocated and extensively used as a playing field, as "a means of financing the more expeditious completion" by the Government of the scheme for reclaiming and laying out Aberdeen Inlet for recreation grounds.

3. Our reasons for disagreement are as follows:-

(a) The carving out of Caroline Hill, for building purposes would spoil the amenities of the Sookunpoo Valley now almost exclusively devoted to the purpose of playing fields. the benefits of which are enjoyed by men of the Services as well as by civilians of all nationalities. The conspicuously successful Grand Tattoo, held for a period of three consecutive days in October 1928, when thousands of residents of, and visitors to, the Colony, enjoyed a magnificent spectacle staged in an ideal and unique setting sufficiently demonstrates the value of Sookunpoo Valley being retained and maintained for its present purposes without the incumbrance of buildings for residential purposes, for which more suitable sites might be found elsewhere on the Island, and preferably, at Kowloon.

(b) The value and the cost of the land should not, in our opinion, constitute a deciding factor in the consideration of the question as to whether or not it should be retained as a recreation ground. Indeed, if that were ટી. decisive factor in such a question, it would be difficult to justify the retention of playing fields occupying immensely more

immensely more valuable

valuable areas within the City limits, e.g. the Hong Kong Cricket Club ground, which, we understand, is worth about five and a half million dollars. The same might be said of the extensive area within King's Park at Kowloon which, for its entire acreage, has a value far in excess of that which may be assessed for Caroline Hill. And yet the permanent reservation of King's Park for playing fields and as an open area-a very wise measure indeed- has been secured by legislation.

(c) The recommendation that Caroline Hill should be sacrificed in favour of the Aberdeen Valley scheme on the ground that the latter provides nine times the area which the former does is, to our mind, unsound, because of the vital question of accessibility. The distance of Aberdeen Valley and its difficulty of access, in point of time and expense, as compared with Caro- line Hill which thousands can reach from their offices, and the Naval men from the ships in the harbour and the soldiers from their barracks and their social headquarters within city limits by easy methods of mass trans- portation, such as the existing tram and bus services, militates against whatever other advantages that may reasonably be claimed for the Aberdeen Inlet Scheme. To the majority of frequenters of Sookunpoo Valley for purposes of sport the cost of a journey to and from Aberdeen (which is a real consideration because of the smallness of their wages) would be prohibitive, not to speak of the time lost in a winter evening when darkness sets in at a much earlier hour of the day. The popularity of Aberdeen Valley for the purposes of sport remains to be proved: the usefulness of Sookunpoo for the like purpose is established, and its attrac- tions can never be lost because no other large-sized flat land is any longer available on the Island and so favourably situated as Caroline Hill for purposes of sport.

(d) The very terms of our reference demand of us that we should “review the provision at present existing for playing fields in Hong Kong and on the Mainland" we therefore regard it as our duty to consider the adequacy or otherwise of playing fields in the city. This, of course, is an entirely non-racial question: but the fact that a rapidly growing number of Chin- ese, who constitute such a large proportion of the population of Hong

48

Kong, is taking up Sport, must be an important factor on the question of adequacy.

(e) It is interesting to note that of the total acreage of 87.33 acres available for allotment by the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee only 143% has been allotted to Chinese. This does not include ground such as the Hong Kong Cricket Club and the Kowloon Football Club, which do not come within the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee. If the ap- proximate area of these grounds were also included the percentage allotted to the Chinese would be even less. The following summary shows the pre- sent allotments :-

(f) If the present allotment with an area of about 5. acres, to the S.C.A.A., were withdrawn, the total area of playing fields now enjoyed by the Chinese. in Hong Kong and Kowloon would only amount to about 8 acres out of the total of about 82 acres.

(g) In paragraph 4 of the Report it has been pointed out that the necessity for adequate open spaces has been realised only in recent years and that "this has been particularly the case in Hong Kong where the games spirit has been a recent and very rapid growth of modern times among the large Chinese population of the Colony." Admittedly "it is too late now to remedy the mistakes of the past in Victoria and in some parts of Kowloon except at prohibitive cost." We consider that the alienation of Caroline Hill would be one of those grave mistakes over which it would be futile to lament in future. We consider that the site is an ideal one for recreation purposes and that excepting for a very urgent public purpose, any policy advocating the sacrifice of Caroline Hill for a monetary consideration would be subversive to the sporting interests of the community.

2)

4. We have, we hope, said enough to show that Caroline Hill should be retained as a permanent recreation ground, subject to any imperative public needs of the Colony. As we agree with paragraph 7 (e) of the Report, namely, to leave as far as possible to the discretion of the permanent Recreation Grounds Committee all detailed questions of in- dividual allotments we are anxious not to depart from this policy. We feel, however, constrained to express our decided opinion as to the strong moral claim of the S.C.A.A. to the retention of the present allotment for the following reasons :—

(a) We understand that it was only after protracted negotiations, and also after the site had been offered for use by Naval ratings and rejected by the Navy because of the expense involved in preparing and laying it out as a playing field, that the S.C.A.A., at the risk of being dispossessed of their tempor- ary tenure, agreed to the Government's terms and conditions, and spent

large sums of money in site formation, rock blasting, and in levelling and turfing it so as to render it suitable for a playing field. The Association has been in occupation of the site since December 1927 and is maintaining the ground in a manner reflecting credit on its management.

(b) We need hardly enlarge on the fact that the Chinese, in proportion to the number of the Colony's population and also of their proportionate con- tribution to the revenue of the Colony by way of rates and taxes, are inadequately provided for in the matter of public recreation grounds. The Playing Fields Committee recognise the cramped area within which the Chinese Recreation Club is confined in its allotment in Queen's Recreation ground at Causeway Bay. Apart from that allotment and another small allotment inside the Race Course in Hong Kong, and two allotments in Kowloon, the Chinese, who are taking very extensively to open-air games and outdoor sports, do not enjoy the facilities comparable to the other sections of the community That Caroline Hill partially, though inade- quately, supplies the want which had been felt very keenly there can be no denying, and the S.C.A.A.'s deprivation of the Caroline Hill allotment would be a serious hardship on the 4,000 odd members who at present make up that Association, and whose numbers are constantly on the in-

crease.

5. Apart from our disagreement on the specific suggestion for alienation of Caro- line Hill, for the reasons detailed in this Reservation we concur in the general views and recommendations embodied in the Report.

APPENDIX VII.

REPORT OF THE KOWLOON SUB-COMMITTEE.

The sub-committee, appointed at the meeting held on the 4th November, have made two tours of Kowloon with a view more to finding open spaces for rest and recreation than playing fields. We have come to the following general conclusions:-

(a) That there is not the same congestion in Kowloon as there is in Hong Kong, principally because the roads are wide and here and there are dotted oases of low buildings or even no buildings at all. Many of the intersecting roads terminate on the water front and these open ends do give a feeling of 'airiness' which is not so marked on the Hong Kong side.

(b) That small open spaces dotted over the peninsula are possible and desirable.

2. Dealing, firstly, with that portion of the peninsula south of Austin Road, we recommend that the following spaces he kept clear for all time :---

(a) The triangular space bounded by Humphreys Buildings, Cameron Buildings

and Empress Lodge.

(b) The rectangular space bounded by Nathan Road, Granville Road, Car-

narvon Road, and Kimberley Road.

(c) At least a portion of the ground on which Chater Bungalow stands.

3. We also recommend that portions of the Railway Ground on the east side of the railway be utilised forthwith for public recreation grounds, the position having the ad- vantage of being near at hand. The tenure of these grounds could be short; at present large areas are doing no service at all. We should like the Naval representative to say whether these grounds could be adequately made use of by men of the China Squadron, the only thing wanting, to our minds, heing a pier for direct access.

4. Secondly: YAUMATI DISTRICT. This is the most congested part of the Peninsula and needs particular attention.

5. We think suitable areas can be found as follows:

(a) At the corner of Wai Ching and Saigon Streets perhaps 6,000 square feet. (b) Area bounded by Canton Road, Battery and Public Square streets. About one third of this area, in its centre, is taken up by a cheap Chinese Cinema theatre.

(c) West of Shanghai Street and South of Waterloo Road is a small area which

would be very suitable for a small playground.

(d) Between Argyle Street and Mongkok Police Station on Nathan Road is an area partly occupied by a dilapidated and unsightly building and enclosure which would make a good recreation ground.

6. Thirdly: HOMUNTIN.

Little is required in this backwater-the type of residences and the ground they occupy being ample for private enterprise to do what is necessary; but the small square should be tidied up at public expense and seats could be arranged at the base of the rail- way embankment on the east side.

7. Fourthly: KOWLOON TONG.

We believe areas are available here which could be appropriated for public re- creation on the northern side of the Estate. This should be done, but the district is open and well kept and calls more for a playing field than an open space such as we are chiefly dealing with.

1

8. A member of this Sub-Committee elicited the information from the Chairman, at the meeting of the General Committee on the 4th November, that the hill within Kowloon Tong Estate, marked on the Town-planning Map, as reserved for Railway pur- poses, will be cut down to road level and be maintained as a park. We are definitely of opinion that this area, as well as all others within the Estate, intended for playgrounds and 'lungs' should be permanently reserved as such, by legislative enactment if necessary, against building encroachments in future.

9. We have not been able to overhaul the remainder of the Peninsula. Some portions have already been dealt with by the General Committee, for example, the reclaim- ed swamp near the proposed Nathan Square and other ground in the Prince Edward Road region, at both ends of the road.

10. We have recommended what we consider are minimum requirements for public grounds. There are many other areas which we have examined but, for one reason or other, do not recommend. We hold the opinion that certain of the spaces we have named should be resumed from private ownership at an early date.

APPENDIX VIII.

MEMORANDUM REGARDING PUBLIC. TENNIS COURTS.

I beg to request the Committee to ask the Government to provide public tennis courts. It is impossible for anyone who does not belong to one or other of the many clubs to get a game of tennis, probably the most international of all games. I am sure, although I cannot prove it, that there are many Chinese who, educated in one or other of the foreign schools cannot get opportunities to play tennis which they probably have learnt at school and there are other nationals also who are similarly situated.

Public Municipal tennis courts are provided at Shanghai, New York, Chicago, Vancouver and I understand Australia as well as at home. The game is one which can be and is played by artificial light and courts on which play was possible up to, say 10 p.m. would be a boon to people who generally work until 5 p.m. or later and whom darkness prevents from having any other daily exercise than a walk when their evening meal is over.

In King's Park there is ground which is unsuitable for football, which, if made into tennis courts would increase the area used for football, as the netting around the tennis courts would stop footballs from going into the roads. The ground I refer to is at the South end of the two public football grounds-it is level and would call for the minimum expenditure. There is other ground in Kowloon notably the railway ground at Yaumati which is too irregular to turn into large recreation fields but which could be terraced into courts.

I would suggest a start with three courts at each of these places.

The cost of construction and running these courts would be a minute fraction of Government expenditure and I see no reason why they should be refused on the ground that they may not be self supporting although I believe that in the course of time they will be so, besides, a given area will serve more people if it is divided up into courts for tennis and such like games than if it were kept for football and I submit that the neces- sity is as great as public bathing beaches and the seasonable operations of the one could coincide with the termination of the other, thereby using the same staff throughout the

year.

:

I have already put these points before the Kowloon Residents' association to get their views, and they were unanimous in their support to such a scheme.

Showing the popularity of tennis in three important clubs, viz: the Hong Kong Cricket Club, Kowloon Cricket Club, and Kowloon Football Club the secondary game of tennis is played by probably more members than the name sport of the particular club, and I submit that the sporting instinct, the spirit of playing the game would be immensely developed by providing public facilities for a game which can be played by both sexes, a development with benefits out of all proportion to the expenditure.

APPENDIX IX.

A SUGGESTION FOR THE USE OF SMALL AREAS IN

HONG KONG AS PLAYGROUNDS.

In these days it is unnecessary to emphasize the importance of games, and of pro- viding playing facilities for as many of the population as possible.

In Hong Kong, until recent years, 'playing fields' connoted areas large enough for cricket or football: 'grounds' were at least large enough for one tennis court.

:

It has been demonstrated, however, that areas even smaller than a tennis court may be used to good purpose for certain games, such as volley ball and basket ball, and that these games are suitable for general play. They are interesting to players and watchers, foster a team spirit, and are conducive to mental alertness.

At the Chinese Y.M.C.A., Bridges Street, a small ground (60′ × 80′) has been used for these games for sixteen years with good results. Every year during the period more than 1.000 boys, from 10 to 15 different schools, have made use of this ground, under supervision, at stated periods. In other places even smaller grounds have been similarly used.

Several of the larger schools now use the small areas about their buildings for organised play, but many smaller institutions have no plot of ground at all. If a few areas, in both Hong Kong and Kowloon, could be found and allocated for this purpose, provision could be made for the boys in the smaller private schools, and for a consider- able number of street boys as well. A beginning should be made with a few plots only, say, two in Hong Kong and two in Kowloon.

The following scheme is suggested for the management of these grounds :----

1. That a 'Small Playing Grounds Association' be formed, to provide equip- ment and to control any grounds that might be allotted to it, either for temporary or permanent use. One such central control is important. as overlapping in appeals to a community is objectionable and should be ob- viated.

2. As adequate supervision is essential if small grounds are to be used satis- factorily, the Association should employ a Supervisor of Play. In some cities in the West, where there are many such playgrounds, the supervisor has several assistants. In other places, he gets all his help from volunteers. I believe playgrounds in Hong Kong could be supervised by one employed man and voluntary assistants. A school or club will sometimes supply all necessary volunteer help for a small ground in its neighbourhood.

Many cities have grounds for smaller children équipped with apparatus, such as swings, see-saws etc., but these grounds require more supervision and are unsuitable for Hong Kong at present.

APPENDIX X.

COLOMBO MUNICIPAL PLAYGROUNDS.

1. The movement was started by Mr. R. W. Byrde, Mayor, at the end of 1916 and in February, 1917, the Council voted Rs. 2500/- to cover the following:-

Apparatus and equipment for games Salary of Instructor for one year. Contingencies

Rs. 1100/- 1200/-

3.9

وو

200/-

Rs. 2500/-

An Instructor was appointed on Rs. 100/- a month and later on the Council sanctioned a fee of Rs. 50/- a month to be paid to Mr. Cammack of the Y.M.C.A. for supervising the playground work and instructing the Playground Instructor. Price Park in the Pettah was the first playground opened.

2. Since then the movement has increased and at the present time there are nine playgrounds in various parts of the City, mostly in a portion of existing parks though some have been specially constructed, e.g. one on the foreshore of Watersmeet and an- other on land bought and filled in for the purpose in Jampettah Street.

3. The Staff at present consists of a Chief Playground Instructor, who is the original playground Instructor since promoted, who was in 1927 placed on the step Rs. 2100/- a year in a new scale which rises to Rs. 3180/- a year by increments of Rs. 120/- He was also granted a Motorcycle and Side-car Allowance of Rs. 900/- a year.

a year.

4. There are five other full time Instructors whose pay rises from Rs. 1200/- to Rs. 2400/- by annual increments of Rs. 60/-. They draw a rickshaw allowance of Rs. 35/- a month.

5. There are four part-time Instructors who attend their playgrounds between 4 and 6.30 p.m. daily for Rs. 50/- a month. Two of these are ladies who attend to the two playgrounds for girls included in the above nine.

6. The Y.M.C.A. Royapet House, Royapet, Madras, has a department of Physical Training and Health Education which conducts courses of instruction in physical training and games of 3, 6 or 12 months duration. They have trained a large number of In- structors in India and several of our Instructors in Colombo have been sent there for one or other of their courses.

7. The playgrounds though available all day are actually chiefly used after 4 p.m. when the Instructors attend in order to organize football, volleyball, basketball and such other games as there may be room for. They also see that the smaller children have a fair share of the swings, see-saws and giant strides. The full time Instructors are also ex- pected to get into touch with the children in their homes to encourage them to attend the playgrounds, to organize football clubs, to try and find employment for them as they grow up, to get them out of scrapes and generally to do what they can for them. This side of the work requires and is capable of considerable development. An off-shoot of the playground movement is the City Football League of bare-footers which consists of something like 3000 members and some 30 or 40 clubs. The League matches are very popular and attract large crowds. They are chiefly played on Saturday afternoons or Sundays as the players are chiefly youths who are employed during the week. There is also a Juvenile League for the younger boys and various shields and cups have been pre- sented for these Leagues and also for the Volley Ball League.

8. I induced the Girl Guides to start the girls' playgrounds which they did by visiting the homes and inducing the girls to attend. When each got started a part time Instructress was appointed to take over the work and to be present every day. Recently, as the work in one such playground flagged somewhat, I have got the Girl Guides to visit it once or twice a week to buck it up and to create a fresh interest and new ideas.

9. In the last few years we have organized in December Inter-playground sports at which teams from the playgrounds compete against each other so as to encourage team spirit and not individual effort. These have been a success and occasionally the Governor has attended to distribute the prizes.

(Not repro-

duced).

My Lord,

With reference to paragraph 5 of my despatch No. 395 of the 6th of Septem- ber, 1929, I have the honour to report the further action taken in connection with the Report of the Salaries Commission, additional copies of which are enclosed for convenience of reference.

2. I desire first to express my great indebtedness to the members of the Com- mission and in particular to the Chairman, Sir Henry Gollan, K.C., C.B.E. for the meticulous care with which they approached this intricate problem and for the very able report which they have presented as the result of their long and elaborate enquiries. Their recommendations cannot but prove of the utmost value in arrang- ing for the just and equitable treatment of all officers of this Government in regard to their remuneration and other conditions of service.

3. As a first step copies of the Report were issued to the heads of all depart- ments with an invitation to submit to the Colonial Secretary any representations they might wish to make regarding the awards to their respective staffs. This invitation produced a very large body of detailed criticism, in which nearly every branch of the Service participated. Every item in these representations was fully and carefully considered and a decision for or against modification of the Commission's awards was taken. The final recommendations of Government are embodied in the enclosed* schedule of recommendations and observations. Apart from these, I would propose to adhere strictly to the Report.

4. At the same time copies of the Report were sent to the Labour Advisory Board with the request that it would furnish the Government with its views on the findings so far as they concerned those categories of employment which are embrac- ed by the term "Labour". On the request of the Unofficial Members of the Execu- tive Council copies were also sent for general criticism and observation, to the Com- mittees of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce and the Hong Kong Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

5. Replies were received from the Chinese Chamber of Commerce on the 27th of November, 1929, and the Labour Advisory Board on the 6th of December. 1929, the former offering no observations or representations on the Report, while the lat- ter conveyed in general terms an opinion on the part of its commercial members that the Government was already paying its labour adequately. The Committee of the General Chamber of Commerce has not yet replied but has reported progress in an interim letter of which a copy is enclosed.† It seems fairly clear from this letter that so far as labour is concerned the awards of the Commissioners will not find favour with the European business community of this Colony and the opposition may extend to the recommendations for Chinese Staff generally or even to the whole Re- port. But I may say at once that I cannot do otherwise than accept the view em- bodied in paragraphs 21-23 of the Report that the wages now paid by Government to its lowest regular servants are inadequate and that amelioration must begin from this level and spread upwards.

:

*Enclosure No. 4.

6. With regard to cost a comparative table of the amounts payable under the existing regulations and under the recommendations of the Report, at exchange rates of $1=1/10d., 1/9d. and 1/6d, respectively is enclosed. The Estimates for 1930 were framed on the basis of an exchange of $1=1/10d. and sterling salaries were calculated under existing regulations at the privileged rate of $12 to the £1. plus a high cost of living allowance of 8% or 16% for unmarried and married. officers respectively. The total so payable would have been $8,931,096 and the first rough estimate of the cost of the revision made at the time of the introduction of the Budget and calculated at the same rate of exchange showed a total increase of $1,300,000. The estimate has subsequently been revised and the cost of the scheme at $1=1/107. is now estimated at $10,114,030 or an increase of $1,182,934 over the sum voted in the 1930 estimates. Since then the value of the dollar has declined in the most startling fashion until it reached the unprecedented figure of 1/64d. from which it has only slightly recovered. This fall in exchange has already in- volved the Government in payment of temporary allowances at 18% and 9% instead of 16% and 8% as provided for in the estimates, the additional cost of which, if extended throughout the year, is estimated at $214,500 over and above the $420,000 voted for the high-cost-of-living allowance. It has been found from the experience of 1929 that even at 16% and 8% the vote of $420,000 would have proved inade- quate and would require to be raised to $564,000. A recalculation of the effect of the new scheme based on exchange rate of 1/6d. and a detailed application of the new scales to existing staff raises the gross estimate to $11,472,554 or $2,541,458, in excess of the sum actually voted for 1930 and $1,358,524 over the revised es- timate at $1-1/10d. of the additional cost. of the revision. Any revival in the value of silver will automatically result in a reduction of this sum. As the Table shows at exchange $1=1/9d., the net extra cost of the scheme would be under $1,350,000. It must, moreover, be borne in mind that the existing rules for conversion of sterl- ing salaries are powerless to mitigate the effects on officers with sterling commitments of an exchange of $1=1/64d. The sliding scale itself ceases to be of value below an exchange rate of 1/8d. and the temporary allowance does not compensate for any lower rate than 1/9d. Therefore, without any revision of salaries, it has already become necessary to consider what steps should be taken to compensate the officers with sterling commitments for this further drop in the sterling value of the dollar. Should it prove necessary to abandon the sliding scale and to convert sterling sala- ries at current rate with the maximum temporary allowance on the results so obtained, and assuming an exchange rate of 1/6d, it would be necessary to increase the sum voted for 1930 by $797,653. The maximum cost of the revision if the dollar should fall to 1/tid. may therefore be put at $2,541,458 over the sum voted for 1930 but at only $1,743,805 over the sum which it may in any case be necessary to vote if the dollar should fall to and remain at 1/6d. I do not however anticipate that the dollar will fall as low as 1/6d. or that it will even remain at its present low level

7. It is necessary at this point to consider how far the Colony can meet the in- creased cost of the scheme without resort to additional taxation. The estimates for 1929 as framed, foreshadowed a deficit of $2,521,050. The final figures for the year will not be available until the Crown Agents accounts are received, but the result of the year's working as estimated by the Treasurer shows, in place of the de- ficit, a surplus of $1,485,405;—revenue showing a surplus of $940,350 and expen- diture being $3,066,105 below the estimate.

8. When the Budget for 1930 was introduced in September last, the position had so far improved that a deficit of only $379,368 was anticipated at the end of 1929; but even this estimate proved unduly pessimistic, and (as stated above) the year ended with a surplus of about $1,485,405. We, therefore, start the year 1930 with the sum of $1,864,773 more than we expected. As a result of this our assets on the 1st January, 1930, are raised from the estimated figure of $7,712,265 to $9,577,038 of which $8,041,363 are considered to be liquid. Speaking generally, therefore, the financial position of the Colony cannot be regarded as unsatisfactory.

9. Turning now to the estimates for 1930, I would first premise that the un- expected fall in the exchange value of the dollar has upset our calculations both as regards the salaries scheme and as regards sterling expenditure on salaries and ma- terial. As however I remarked above, I can hardly believe that the dollar will re- main at its present almost unprecedented depreciation and I look for some improvement in the course of the year. There is, moreover, little doubt that the

A

53

savings which inevitably occur every year will more than offset the loss. from the fall of the dollar. If the liquid surplus balances of the Colony, estimated on January 1930 at $8,041,363 may properly be used to supplement normal revenue for the purpose of meeting votes for Public Works Extraordinary and for certain heavy items of non-recurrent expenditure included under the heading of special expendi- ture, we are left with the following analysis for 1930:-

Estimated Total Revenue

Deduct Land Sales

Estimated Recurrent Revenue

Estimated Total Expenditure

Deduct Public Works Extraordinary

Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve (disallowed) Certain heavy items of non-recurrent special

expenditure

$22,712,920 1,000,000

$21,712,920

$27,268,515

$ 3,840,750

25,433

1,015,000

$4,881,183

$22,387,332

Gross Recurrent Expenditure

10. These figures show an estimated deficit of $674,412, as between estimated recurrent revenue and gross estimated recurrent expenditure; but I fully expect the recurrent revenue to exceed the already approved recurrent expenditure in the light of past experience Even without deducting "special expenditure" items, the re- current revenue has for the past few years in every case exceeded recurrent expen- diture, as is shown in the table which forms enclosure No. 5 to this despatch. I, therefore, view the future with less apprehension than the printed estimates might appear to warrant.

11. On the figures for 1929, it would have been possible to meet the full cost of the salaries scheme estimated at $1,038,934 for that year and still have shown a surplus at the end of the year. The position for 1930 is not quite so favourable owing to the drop in exchange and I consider that it would be advisable to make pro- vision for an increased recurrent revenue of about $1,000,000. I have already un- der consideration a tax on petrol, which should bring in some $200,000 and the possibilities of an amusement tax and of a tax on betting are being investigated; but I cannot anticipate any large revenue from these sources. The only taxes which bring in large sums are the Assessment Tax, the Stamp Tax and the taxes on liquor and tobacco. Of these the taxes on liquor and tobacco have recently been reviewed and are probably as high as it is wise to make them at present, though they may be capable of future enhancement. The Stamp Duties I should prefer not to disturb. There remains the Assessment Tax. The present general rate is 13% and it is expected to yield $4,250,000 in 1930. This cannot be called a high rate in com- parison with other large cities, and I think it could be raised by 4% without any appreciable rise in rents or other undue hardship. An increase in the Assessment rate by 4% should bring in about $1,300,000. From the $1,500,000 thus raised it would be necessary under the present method of calculation to deduct 20% $300.000 as Military Contribution, for which the Colony will obtain no additional benefit. Your Lordship will no doubt realize that this deduction of 20% acts as a very strong deterrent to the raising of additional revenue and, if Your Lordship could arrange that Military Contribution should not be charged on this additional revenue, necessitated as it is by the normal expansion of activities and by an increase in the cost of living, it would go far to remove any opposition to the proposed in- crease in Taxation.

or

12. I would accordingly request Your Lordship's authority, if possible by tele- graph, to lay the recommendations of the Commission, as modified by the schedule herein, before the Finance Committee of the Legislative Council with a view to the approval of a vote enabling me to put the new scheme into force with effect from the 1st of January, 1930, and at the same time to proceed with my proposals for raising additional revenue.

The Government is prepared to accept the Commissioners' suggestion for the institution of a system of New Year bonuses to Chinese employees in the lowest categories which may most conveniently be described by the term "Labour". It is realized that such a step may have very far-reaching effects in the cost of such ser- vices to other employers, including the Military and Naval Authorities of the Colony. But some large "foreign" employers already have such a system in work- ing, it is usual in domestic service and in some form or other among Chinese em- ployers. At the same time it is not considered practicable to fix arbitrarily a limit of wage above which no bonus shall be receivable and it is therefore proposed that a careful survey shall be made of all Chinese "Labour" in the employment of the Government, category by category, and a decision taken on the merits of each. It should be observed that owing to the action of the Chinese Government. the use of the lunar calendar among Chinese may perhaps disappear and that, in such an event the bonus will become payable in December instead of January or February. For the first year therefore in which the change takes effect, it may be necessary to budget for two bonuses.

Paragraphs 28-37. Governor.

Paragraph 32.-In view of the increases in salary accorded to the Private Secretary and Aide-de-Camp, it is considered that the Conveyance Allowance of $360 per annum each now drawn by these officers should be abolished.

Paragraph 34.-It will be more convenient to include under the head "Gov- ernor" in the Annual Estimates the wages of the chauffeur for the second Govern- ment House Car (see paragraph 36). At present the Governor himself pays a portion $240 per annum) of the wages of the chauffeur for his second (private) car, the re- mainder ($600 per annum) being paid from Fire Brigade funds. The wages of the motor cleaner $192 per annum now paid by the Governor personally should also be transferred to public expenditure under the same head. The saving to the Governor represented by these charges, $432 per annum, will be deducted from the lump sum of $5,000 per annum recommended for servants in paragraph 35 of the Report.

55

Paragraph 37.-It is considered that the payment from public funds of the cost of the central heating plant should date from the time when the plant first came into operation (in 1929) and this adjustment has already been made.

Paragraphs 38-42. Cadet Service.

The recommendations in these paragraphs are accepted, but certain proposals -connected with the Cadet Service are offered under Paragraph 163 and it is re- commended that the total of seven First Class posts (Paragraph 42) should not be affected by the transfer, permanently or otherwise, of certain appointments in the Service to non-Cadet officers. The appointment of Secretary for Chinese Affairs now raised to "staff" class with a fixed salary should, however, be counted as one of the seven. The total Cadet establishment below First Class is now 31, and seven higher appointments is not, in my opinion, an unduly generous proportion.

Paragraphs 43-49. Senior Clerical & Accounting Staff.

Paragraph 47. It is considered that the post of Chief Clerk in the Colonial Secretary's Office should be restored to the premier position of the whole cadre with the salary allotted by the Report to the two highest Special Appointments i.e., £820- £1050 by seven annual increments of £30 and one of £20. This officer is not merely Chief Clerk of the Colonial Secretariat but Chief Clerk of the Government. The Commissioners do not appear to have appreciated this position and were probably further influenced in their allotment of salary by the fact that the appointment of the present holder, which had to be made hastily in unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances, carried a considerable increase in his emoluments. He has, how- ever, shown himself more than fully capable of maintaining the high standard set up by his predecessors and his elevation to their status is therefore as justifiable on per- sonal as it is desirable on administrative grounds.

The question of the salaries to be allotted to the Accountant and Cashier, Trea- sury, should await the arrival of the new Deputy Treasurer, in the meantime the awards of the Report should stand. The Cashier is now in Class I of the Senior Clerical and Accounting Staff.

Similarly the question of the First Clerkship, Magistracy, should stand over un- til the return of the First Magistrate from leave. The post will not fall vacant until the end of August, 1930.

Paragraphs 50-54. Junior Clerical Staff.

Protests against the award of the Commissioners were received from many mem- bers of this cadre in different departments, the chief burden of their complaint being the through time-scale awarded to Chinese Masters in the Education Depart- ment. It is, however, obvious that a through scale could not be granted to so large and various an establishment as the Chinese clerical staff without placing a charge on the public purse out of all proportion to value received and the Government is satisfied that, when due allowance is made for the principal of valuation by maximum capacity enunciated in Paragraph 18 of the Report, there is no undue stagnation in this branch of the Service.

Paragraph 53.-The system of expansion referred to in this paragraph is being regularly followed.

Paragraphs 55-57. Colonial Secretary' Office.

Paragraph 56.-The status and salary of the Chief Clerk is dealt with above under Paragraph 47.

Paragraph 57.-The post of Head Messenger, shewn with a special salary ($180) in the Estimates for 1929 (and 1930) appears to have been overlooked by the Com- mission. He has considerable responsibility in the matter of transport of documents and it is recommended that he should be granted the scale $192 to $240 by $12 triennially.

Paragraphs 58-60. Secretariat for Chinese Affairs.

Paragraph 58.-As mentioned above under Cadet Service, the post of Secretary for Chinese Affairs is now a staff appointment with the maximum (£1,500) of the First Class scale as salary (fixed). In order to maintain this relative position the post should carry a revised salary of £1,800 per annum. The present holder Mr. Hal- lifax, should retain his Personal Allowance of £300 per annum.

Paragraphs 66-70. District Officers North & South.

Paragraph 67.-It is agreed that there should be a single establishment of Land Bailiffs with a single salary scale for District Offices and Public Works Department. A recommendation for the improvement of the prospects of officers in this cadre is made under the latter department (paragraph 153).

Paragraphs 71-75. Post Office.

For the newly created post of Inspector of Postmen a revised salary of £260 to £430 by five annual increments of £10, three of £20 and four of £15 is recommend- ed, with an efficiency bar at £350. This scale represents an amalgamation of the scales recommended for 2nd and 1st class Sanitary Inspectors (paragraph 140). Present salary is £220-£360.

Paragraphs 82-92. Harbour Department.

The Harbour Master has made very strong representations as to the inadequacy of the salaries awarded to certain sections of his European staff, more especially the Marine Surveyors, Chief Boarding Officer, Chief Junk Inspector and Boarding Offi- cers. As, however, all the considerations urged by and on behalf of all these officers were before the Commissioners the Government finds itself unable to recommend any departure from the Report.

It

A petition from the Marine Surveyor against this decision is annexed.* should be explained that General Order No. 12 referred to in this petition was issued with a view to preventing public funds from being saddled with pensions after com- paratively brief service on the part of the employee, and departure therefrom does not necessarily imply any exceptional value in the officer in whose favour it is made.

Paragraphs 101-105. Supreme Court

Paragraph 104.-The second Bailiff is a local man and received, on promotion to this post, a dollar salary of $3,000-$100-$3,600. The Commission was not aware of this arrangement, the salary of the post being still shewn in Sterling in the Esti- mates for 1929. It is recommended that this officer's revised salary be on the scale of $3,700 by $150 annually to $4,300.

The report contains no recommendation for the salaries of the Bailiffs' watch-. men and Head Watchman; but it has been ascertained that $192 to $240 and $312 to $360 in each case by $12 triennially were intended for these officers respectively.

Paragraph 110. Magistracy, Hong Kong.

The question of the First Clerk is dealt with under paragraph 47 supra.

Paragraphs 112-118. Police Force.

Paragraph 112.--Although the Commissioners were informed by the Head of the Police Department of Government's proposals for re-naming and redistributing the senior staff of the Force, their report contains no mention of the scheme, presum- ably because it was not then definitely in being. It is now in force and provision must therefore be made for the Deputy Inspector General. A fixed salary of £1,400 per annum is recommended, the Inspector General's scale being at the same time altered to £1,450 to £1,600 by annual increments of £50.

Subsequently to the issue of the Report a new post of Assistant Storekeeper has been created in the Police Department and filled by a police officer who was on temporary pension as a result of wounds received on duty. The salary scale selected

:

57

for the post is £250 to £385 by £15 annually with existing conversion privileges and it is recommended that the revised salary shall be that of Class III, Senior Clerical & Accounting Staff, namely £250 to £445 by varying increments.

Paragraph 117.-It is recommended that the Gardener at Tai Po should be paid at the rate of $192 to $240 by $12 triennially (see para. 144). An efficient man cannot be obtained for less.

Paragraphs 124-138.-Medical Department.

The Director of Medical and Sanitary Services has entered a strong plea for bet- ter terms for the Senior Staff of his Department mainly on the ground that the scales in the Report compare unfavourably with those of similar staff in other Colonies, es- pecially in Malaya. A copy of his representations is annexed.* All the main facts of *Not printed. his case, were, however, before the Commissioners and their dictum in paragraph 40 regarding pecuniary competition with richer colonies is as true of the Medical as of the Cadet Service. Also due regard must be had to the balance of the Report as a whole. Any general increase in the awards to one Section of the Service can hardly fail to call forth or revive requests from other sections for similar conces- sions. Apart, therefore, from the items set out below, the Government is unable to recommend departure from the Report. It is nevertheless most important that the Colony should possess a thoroughly efficient Medical Service, and if suitable officers are really unobtainable at the salaries recommended by the Commissioners, in- creases will be considered. At the same time an endeavour will be made to extend in the higher ranks of the Medical Department the policy, already adopted in the Nursing establishment, of staffing all but "key" posts with Chinese officers Chinese are studying medicine in ever increasing numbers and while by reason of their dif- ferent standard of living their salaries are on a much lower plane than those re- quired for European officers, it is hoped that their qualifications both theoretical and practical will reach the standard required for the public service of this Colony.

Modification of the Report in respect of the following items is recommended:-

Paragraph 124.-The Government agrees that the Director of Medical and Sani- tary Services should be treated in all respects as a First Class officer and should receive a salary of £1,500 to £1,800 by £50 annually.

Considerable difficulty has been experienced in recruiting a Malarial Research Officer with the requisite experience. A candidate with long service under the Gov- ernment of the Federated Malay States has now been found who is willing to transfer on £1,280, the maximum proposed in the Report for a Senior Medical Officer, and it is recommended that for the immediate future this shall be the salary of the post.

It is considered that insufficient recognition is accorded by the Report to the spe- cialist qualifications of the Chinese Medical Officer of Health and his salary is re- commended to be $5,700 to $8,400 by $300 annually.

The Assistant Visiting Medical Officer to Chinese Hospitals and Medical Offi- cer for Schools are temporary appointments only in the same sense as the locally engaged European schoolmistresses (paragraph 148). It is recommended that as in the case of the latter, the dollar salaries of these two officers shall be slightly in- creased to $7,800 and $6,600 respectively.

Paragraph 125.-The salaries mentioned in the Report are for Chinese Radio- graphers. These have now been abolished and a European Radiographer appointed on a salary of £320-£360 by £10 annually. The equivalent of this in terms of the Report is £370-£430 by £15 annually and that salary is recommended for the post.

Paragraph 127.-For the post of Assistant Steward, not covered by the Report,

a salary of £310 to £350 by £10 annually is recommended.

Paragraph 133.-Two Chinese Boys, employed respectively in the Operating Theatre and X-ray Department and now drawing $240 a year, should receive the same salary as is recommended for Ward Boys in the Mental Hospital, viz: $264 $360 by $24 triennially.

! !

58

Sew Amahs are much more skilled workers than wash amahs and should be paid the same salary as Ward Amahs.

Paragraphs 139 to 142. Sanitary Department.

Paragraph 139.-The salary recommended for the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon is for a post without private practice and in as much as the present holder will be entitled by reason of the shortened range of the new scale to its maximum of £1,200 as against his present £825 it is considered that he should forgo the allow- ance he now receives for the loss of a private practice which was always of a rather nebulous nature.

Paragraph 140.-It is recommended that the present system of bonus increments to Inspectors for possession of certain technical and linguistic qualifications shall be continued.

Paragraph 142.-The Commissioners were misinformed as to the present emolu- ments of the Dust Station Foreman. He already receives a rent allowance of $48 per annum, and a salary of $324 to $384 by $12 annually with rent allowance is now recommended.

Paragraph 143-145. Botanical & Forestry Department.

While satisfactory material for training into gardeners and foresters may be ob- tainable at $156 per annum, the increases (four triennial increments of $12 each) allotted in the Report are insufficient to retain men with any real aptitude for the class of work, the outside market rate for this service being considerably better. It is therefore recommended that the scales of these employees shall be $156 to $228 by two increments of $24 each after three and six years and two of $12 each after nine and twelve years.

Paragraphs 146-152. Education Department.

Paragraph 149.--It has been ascertained that the Commissioners were under a misapprehension regarding the length of the University course for graduate teachers (non-British). Had it been three years, as they understood it to be, the salary of a teacher in this class would have been always ahead by $150 per annum of that drawn by a non-graduate teacher entering the service at the same time, until both came to a stop at the maximum. The course is, however, a four year one, and, owing to the two marriage increments granted to the non-graduate teachers, their salary and that of the graduates as awarded by the Report, will coincide as early as the eighth year of service. In order, therefore, to maintain the premium for a University training, it is recommended that the graduate teachers shall receive a double increment ($300) in their seventh year of service.

It will be convenient to include here recommendations on a matter not dealt with by the Commission, namely, the fees paid to lecturers at the Technical Institute, many of whom are Government officers. It is proposed, in order to keep in line with the general increases awarded to Educational Staff to raise the rates for these ser- vices as follows:-

For the English side:-

Present rate $4 to $6 per hour.

Proposed,, $7 to $8 per hour.

according to average attendance.

For the Vernacular side:-

Present rate $2 to $3 per hour. Proposed, $4 per hour.

وو

An additional supervisor at King's College at a salary of $400 per annum is also recommended as well as an increase in the remuneration of the Supervisor of Vernacular classes from $240 to $400 per annum and of allowance to the Technical Institute Clerk from $360 to $600 p.a The estimated cost of these adjustments is $6,421 per annum.

59

Paragraphs 153 & 154. Public Works Department.

Paragraph 153: Assistant Director of Public Works. For reasons that will appear below it is recommended that the minimum for, this post shall be raised to £1,300.

Engineers.The Government, while agreeing that the system of Charge Allow- ances is objectionable, is nevertheless of the opinion that these allowances now payable to the Engineers in charge of the main sub-departments of the Public Works Depart- ment were paid in recognition of a very real access of responsibility to the officers concerned. Moreover, with one Directorship and two Assistant Directorships as the only higher posts in the department, the prospects of the fifty odd engineers both for promotion and for acting pay are extremely poor compared with those of other branches of the Service (cf. Education Department, two Headmasterships, two In- spectorships and three Senior Masterships). It is, therefore, recommended that the grade of Executive Engineer intermediate between that of Engineer and Assistant Director be revived with a salary scale of £1180 to £1300 by £40 annually and that 8 posts on this scale, corresponding to the eight chief branches of the depart- ment should be created. Should the constructional side of the Waterworks cease to be in the charge of an officer with the rank of Assistant Director and still remain a separate sub-department, a further appointment on this scale may be required. In allotting salaries on the new scale to existing staff due regard will be had to the fact that the forfeited allowances could only be drawn during actual duty in the Colony and were not pensionable. The insertion of this new grade renders it necessary that the new minimum of the Assistant Directors scale shall be raised to £1,300-vide

supra.

Technical Secretary. It is doubtful whether this post requires an officer of Executive grade; but, as its present holder is eligible both by seniority and qualifica- tions for Executive rank, it is recommended that the salary indicated above, £1,180 -£1,300, be allotted to this post unless and until the present holder can be trans- ferred to take charge of one of the eight sub-departments.

Land Bailiffs. This branch of the service is very much a cul-de-sac even with the amalgamation into a single cadre of the New Territories and Public Works staff. The three officers at the head of Class I have all well over fifteen years total service and their prospects of further advancement are limited to a single post, which is not likely to fall vacant before 1934. It is, therefore, recommended that a second post of Senior Bailiff, common to the cadre, be created with salary of £475--£575 by £20 annually as in the Report.

Wireless Staff. It is recommended that the Wireless Telegraph Sub-Engineers should receive the same salary as the Telegraph Sub-Engineer namely £475 to £575 by £20 annually. One of these officers, not the most senior of the cadre, has already, on the transfer of Wireless staff to the Post Office, been granted the present equivalent of this salary.

Superintendent of Crown Lands and Superintendent of Surveys.

These officers now draw a charge allowance of £100 per anuum and for reasons similar to those indicated in the case of the Engineers-in-Charge it is considered that some improvement on the scales in the Report should be given, the allowance being at the same time abolished. It is, therefore, recommended that their scales should rise by one further increment to £1,240.

The First Assistant Superintendent of Crown Lands is now eligible for a maximum higher by one increment of £25 than the Assistant Superintendent of Surveys. It is recommended that this mark of seniority be preserved and that the revised maximum shall be £1,050 instead of £1,020, but the matter should be re- considered on the post falling vacant.

Paragraph 154.-The Junior Engineering Assistant (Port Development) received promotion while the Commission was in session, and the salary awarded to him in the Report takes no account of this. It is recommended that his revised salary should be the same as for First Class Assistant Land Surveyors, i.e., $3,800 to $5,600 by $200 annually.

60

Non-European Wireless and Telegraph Staff.-This staff has always been graded on salaries approximating very closely to those of corresponding grades of the Junior Clerical Staff, with which it has many affinities. In the Estimates for 1930, coin- cidently with its transfer to Post Office control, its alignment with the Junior Clerical Service was made complete. The Report, however, awards less favourable salaries grade for grade to the former. This in the opinion of the Government is not only undesirable as upsetting a recently established balance, but inequitable in that Wire- less and Telegraphic Staff require in addition to clerical knowledge considerable skill of a technical kind. It is, therefore, recommended that the scales for this staff shall be:--

Class II Telegraphists (formerly Traffic Supervisors) $2,700 to $3,300 by

$150 annually.

Class III Telegraphists $1,900 to $2,600 by. $100 annually.

Class IV Telegraphists $1,500 to $1,800 by $100 annually.

Class V Telegraphists $1,100 to $1,400 by $100 annually.

Class VI Telegraphists $480 to $1,050 by one increment $60, one of

$160, three of $50 and two of $100 as in paragraph 52 of the Report.

Paragraphs 155 and 159. Kowloon-Canton Railway.

Paragraph 156.-One Telephone Operator, an ex-ticket collector disabled on duty has already been promoted to Class V in the Junior Clerical Service and should receive revised salary accordingly.

Paragraph 157.-Owing to the imminent retirement of the holder, the Com- missioners were not informed of the existence of one post of Head Driver carrying with it the not inconsiderable responsibility of training and testing the other drivers. The present salary of the post is $800 to $950 by $25 annually and it is recom- mended that on revision it shall become $900 to $1,050 by $50 annually.

Paragraph 158.-The salary allotted to the Assistant Mechanical Engineer is considered to be too low for an officer who is fully competent to take charge during the absence of the Chief Mechanical Engineer of the whole locomotive fleet of the line and is besides a very competent and hard worked motor engineer. It is ac- cordingly recommended that his scale should be £550 to £700 by £25 annually.

Paragraph 163. Acting pay for Cadet Officers.

Although, as will be seen from paragraph 42, the Commissioners were aware that appointment to the First Class of the Cadet Service is not by posts, their recom- mendations in this paragraph only apply, if there are definite holders of all the posts named. For General Order 92 (1), which is quoted in the preceding paragraph of the Report and is recommended here for application, refers to the absence of the holder. It is, therefore, recommended that the rule in this matter shall be that any Cadet Officer below the First Class, who acts continuously for a period of over two months in any of the following posts.

Treasurer,

Principal Assistant Colonial Secretary,

First Magistrate,

Director of Education,

Postmaster General,

Superintendent of Imports and Exports,

shall receive acting pay in accordance with General Order 92 (1). The six posts named, together with the Secretaryship for Chinese Affairs (about which, being now a definite appointment, there is no difficulty), will then correspond to the seven First Class appointments recommended in paragraph 42.

At the same time it is recommended that the allowances referred to in the final clause of paragraph 163 shall be abolished; also the allowances (not mentioned in the Report) now drawn by the Principal and Second Assistant Colonial Secretary, for duty as Clerk and Deputy Clerk of Councils respectively.

61

It will be observed that the proposed rule runs counter to Colonial Regulation No. 54 in that it allows acting pay to be drawn whether there is pay lapsing as the result of half-pay leave or not. But this departure, which

But this departure, which already appears in General Order 92 (1) issued in connection with the Salaries Revision of 1920, is essential, if acting-pay is to be an appreciable element in the emoluments of the Service. For since the introduction of commuted half-pay leave it has been and will be very exceptional for officers actually to take leave on half-pay.

Paragraph 164. Charge and Duty Allowances.

It will be seen that in the case of the Public Works Department the Govern- ment considers that the Charge Allowances represent facts in the way of responsibility which should continue to receive recognition and has accordingly recommended equivalent increases of substantive salary for the posts concerned.

The same considerations are not in the opinion of the. Government valid for the other Charge Allowances mentioned in this paragraph of the Report and the recommendation for their abolition is therefore accepted.

Paragraphs 165–173. Overtime Allowances.

Paragraph 173.-The allowance mentioned in clause (ii) to an Assistant Marine Surveyor in respect of the Government slipway at Yaumati was granted as a temporary expedient pending increase of European staff. This increase has now been made and it is considered that the allowance should salaries coming into force.

on the revised

The hard-lying allowance now paid to the Chinese crews of the cruising launches in the Police Department does not appear to have been brought to the notice of the Commissioners. It is recommended for continuance.

Paragraphs 174-182. Rent of Government Quarters, Rent and Lodging Allowances.

Paragraph 174.-It has been ascertained that the recommendation regarding officers occupying their own houses in outlying districts was based on the rule adopted by the Treasury for rating assessment in cases of this nature, where no guidance can be obtained from any general level of rents. But in a calculation of this nature for rating purposes it is the net income of the owner which is sought and allowance has to be made for his expenditure on repairs and insurance and for depreciation. In the case of the officers mentioned all these charges fall on the occupier and to award rent allowance on the basis of 6% only of capital outlay does not, therefore, give the officer a fair return for his enterprise in providing his own housing accommodation. It is, therefore, recommended that 8% be adopted as the basis. This proposal has been laid before the Chairman of the Commission and has received his concurrence. It should be observed that 6% net return on capital is by no means a high figure in this Colony.

B. Observations.

(i) In applying the new scales to existing staff it has, with a few exceptions, been assumed that the officer carries with him into the new scale the service in his post, class or grade which he actually has and indeed it is only reasonable that, if a certain time- and salary-scale is found appropriate to a certain post, class or grade, an existing officer should enter that scale at the point corresponding to his service.

There is, moreover, an insuperable difficulty in allotting to existing staff on sterling salaries the nearest figure in the new scales to their existing emoluments in that the effect of fluctuations of exchange on present and revised emoluments is widely divergent. Thus, when the sterling value of the dollar is 2/- £1,000 nominal salary on the present sliding scale with temporary allowance amounts to £1,344 actual salary. On the basis of the Report the equivalent salary of £1,150 with 15% High Cost of Living Allowance would amount to £1,322.10.0. But with the dollar

1

62

at 1/10d. the former figure drops to £1,276, while the latter remains constant, and a slight loss is converted into a substantial gain. Similar divergence occurs when the value of the dollar rises above 2/-. £1,000 nominal then becomes on the existing system £1,404, while £1,150 and 15% becomes £1,433, since under the new system the exchange rate for conversion purposes is not to rise above 2/-. This difficulty does not, of course, arise with dollar salaries, but it is clear that the system of application must be uniform throughout the Service.

(ii) Attention is invited to the statement in paragraph 14 of the Report that, in order to counterbalance the increase in the cost of living, a rise of 20% in dollar salaries is called for. This pronouncement further strengthens the contention that the present salaries of the local employees of Government are inadequate.

(iii) It is considered that the revised salaries should count in full for pension, i.e., that the pensionable salary of an officer who at the date of revision has been three years in a given post, grade or class (or one with the same salary scale) should he his revised salary and not the average of his revised and old salaries. Similarly, where the last three years of service have been in posts with different salary scales, the average to be struck should be that of the revised salaries of both posts and the same rule should apply where the earlier post was formerly on the same scale as the latter but under the revision is on a different scale.

The first part of the rule proposed above requires no argument. For apart from the fact that any other application of the new scheme would delay for three years the full effect of one of its main objects, the rule requiring emoluments be averaged for present purposes operates only when there has been some change of office which is not the case here. The other proposals are natural corollaries of the main proposition.

Telegram of 25th March, 1930 from Secretary of State to the Officer

Administering the Government.

Dated 25th March, 1930.

Your despatch of 22nd January (No. 37). Salaries Commission.

I approve your proceeding as proposed in paragraph 12, but I am bound to say that the recommendations for starting salaries appear to me generous: in particular I am surprised to learn that in Hong Kong the cost of living is higher now than in 1920. The committee gives no evidence of this-and steps should be taken in the course of the year to compare carefully the comparative cost in 1920 and 1929, with a view, if figures warrant it, of withdrawing or diminishing the Cost of Living Allow- ance. I regret I can see no grounds under existing arrangements for proposing that additional revenue should be relieved from assessment for Defence Contribution. Regarding the salaries of Audit and Marine Survey staffs I shall address you later, but in the meantime you should proceed on the basis of the revised salaries' scheme in their cases. Gratuities recommended in paragraph 13 approved. Pending the introduction of revised salaries, I agree to the proposals in your telegram of 14th March that the exchange compensation scale should be extended down to exchange one shilling and sixpence. Despatch follows.

HONG KONG.

WATER SHORTAGE EMERGENCY-JUNE-AUGUST, 1929.

No.

The possibility of a water shortage was foreseen by the Water Authority of the Public Works Department in November, 1928 and steps were taken to order four steel storage tanks through the Crown Agents. This order was transmitted by Cable.

These tanks were erected early in 1929 and were put into use in March, being served with water brought from Lai Chi Kok by the Union Water Boat Co.'s craft.

Water was also obtained from Taikoo Sugar Refinery Reservoir by arrange- ment with the Managers, Messrs. Butterfield and Swire. In May the situation show- ed no improvement and inquiries were made by the Public Works Department with regard to the possibility of obtaining water from outside ports and the means of tran- sporting it to the Colony.

At the beginning of June an informal meeting was held in the Board Room of the offices of Messrs. Jardine Matheson & Co. at which were present most of those who subsequently constituted the Shipping and Landing Sub-Committee of the Water Emergency Committee.

On 12th June a meeting was held in the Council Chamber, under the Chair- manship of Hon. Mr. D. W. Tratman, Acting Colonial Secretary, at which the com- mittees as shown in Appendix "A" were constituted. The Hon. D.P.W. gave a re- sumé of the position (see Appendix "B"). It was also agreed that it had become necessary for the Government to obtain powers to requisition any Lighters, Water- boats, Tugs or other vessels necessary for organising an emergency supply of im- ported water and if necessary to take over and use "Private" supplies.

At the meeting of 21st June in Council Chamber Mr. Sutherland reviewed the activities covered by 3 meetings of the Shipping and Landing Sub-Committee in which they had considered the question of obtaining of supplies from Shanghai, Wang- moon and other sources. The means of transporting the Water so obtained was also discussed.

Mr. Manners, Chairman of Kowloon Residents' Association read proposals, put forward by that body (see Appendix "C").

The Hon. Sir Shou-Son Chow and Hon. Dr. Kotewall referred to a scheme for pumping from Tytam Tuk into the Mains. On 1st July Mr. S. T. Williamson was appointed Controller of Imported Water.

A further meeting was called by the Chairman, The Hon. Mr. W. T. Southorn, C.M.G., on 8th July, in order that the views of the Government on the Tytam Tuk Scheme might be placed before the full committee.

The Hon. D.P.W (Mr. H. T. Creasy, C.B.E.) after reading the latest return of storage in the Island Reservoirs read his memorandum on the subject (see Appendix "D").

Mr. Williamson reviewed the action taken by the Shipping and Landing Com- mittee since his appointment on 1st July giving particulars of water dealt with and the steps taken to gather data of various sources of supply (see Appendix "E"), and Mr. Sutherland expressed appreciation of Government's acceptance of the suggestion that a small Executive Committee be formed out of the body of the Shipping and Landing Sub-Committee. He also reviewed the situation (see Appendix "F").

- 76

The work of collecting and storing imported water was one of the main branches of the comprehensive scheme for the amelioration of the conditions brought about by the drought and since this was dealt with by the Executive Sub-Committee of the Shipping and Landing Sub-Committee it will be convenient to review their activities.

Prior to the formation of the Executive Committee, the Shipping and Land- ing Sub-Committee were using the Naval Tug "Cherub", which had been made avail- able by the Admiralty, and had chartered the 1,000 ton Tanker Motor Vessel "Fu Kwang" from the Asiatic Petroleum Company, and this vessel was engaged upon her first trip to Wangmoon when a further examination of the suggested working of that source of supply was being made on 26th of June by Messrs. E. W. Carpenter, R. Sutherland, J. Ch. A. Gundesen, Capt. R. P. Thomas and Mr. S. T. Williamson who visited Wangmoon in the Government Tug "Kau Sing". Mr. Gundesen was present in order that the Netherlands Harbour Works Company might be in a position to ten- der a price per ton for bulk delivery of water to the tanks in Hong Kong. They ultimately tendered $1.30 per ton but this was not accepted. The above gentlemen formed the opinion, in view of delays which might be caused through Customs for- malities, difficulties of towage in stress of weather and the limitation of draught of craft which could cross the bar at Wangmoon, that it was desirable to abandon the scheme of lighterage and seek other sources of supply which would permit of access by vessels of the "Coaster" type.

Negotiations for the acquisition of such vessels were started, it being realized that such craft would be able to proceed to Tytam Tuk where arrangements were put in hand for laying down the necessary berthing buoys and providing a floating pipe line to connect into a sump which would feed the pumps of the Pumping Station and so permit the water to be carried through the supply mains to the city.

The substitution of the Canton River for Wangmoon as a source of supply was made after an examination which revealed many positions from which suitable water could be obtained. Samples from these positions taken at the worst state of the tide, i.e., at flood, gave results on Salinity and Bacteria tests which were satis- factory and better than those obtained from the Wangmoon water. It was also found that the depth available at these new points of supply would admit of vessels of even deeper draught than the "Coaster" type being used. Inquiries were thereupon insti- tuted with a view to acquiring vessels of the larger "Tanker" type, both under char- ter and by purchase, as it was known that the use of larger vessels would give a lower cost per ton of water delivered into the sump at Tytam Tuk. This cost would not have exceeded 35 cents per ton which figure compared most favourably with cost of water that could be bought at any of the out-ports.

Rain fell in such quantities on and after July 11th as to remove all anxiety, rendering it unnecessary to put these plans into operation. It also became possible to redeliver M.V. "Fu Kwang" to her owners on 2nd August. The vessel made 21 trips bringing over 24,700 tons of water to the Colony, whilst the Admiralty Tug "Cherub" made 16 trips to bring 2,249 tons of water.

The expenditure under the Water Controller amounted to over $182,000.00 which covered the cost of all transportation charges for 65,300 tons of water, brick tanks, fittings and pumps for these, hire and bulkheading of lighters and recondition- ing craft before return to owners. Fuller details of costs etc. are included in the report of the Water Controller (Mr. S. T. Williamson) which is attached as Appendix "G".

Other sources of supply on the Mainland at Sham Cheng and on Lantao at Tai Shui Hang were piped to the foreshore for loading into lighters and the latter supply was used by the Police Patrol Launches. A supply at Plover Cove, New Territory was examined but was found to be not sufficiently large as to warrant development, and the same proved to be the case at Tai O, on Lantao.

Although it was necessary to notify the Agents for Shipping firms in the Colony that they should make arrangements to have their vessels watered at ports other than Hong Kong, it was found possible to supply the Naval and Military es- tablishments with reduced quantities and also to give to unwarned shipping such sup- plies as would carry them to their next port of call.

77

The development of well and nullah supplies was dealt with by the Sanitation and Publicity Sub-Committee under the chairmanship of the Hon. Mr. W. E. L. Shenton with Mr. Wilson of the Public Works Department undertaking the duties of Secretary. The scope of their activities is covered in the report by the Secretary (see Appendix "H”).

A statement of the total expenditure brought about by the State of Emergency is given in Appendix "J".

Appendix "B."

MEETING HELD IN THE COUNCIL CHAMBER, 12TH JUNE, 1929.

Hon. D. P. W. said :---I am glad of this opportunity of placing before the Water Emergency Committee a short resumé of the present water situation and the steps that have been taken to augment the supply.

The total storage in the island reservoirs on the morning of Monday, 10th June. amounted to 212.71 million gallons, shewing a decrease of 25.19 million gallons during the previous week. The week's consumption amounted to 27.37 million gallons and in- cluded 2.26 million gallons brought across the harbour from Kowloon to the tanks on the Water Front and .59 million gallons from the Taikoo Refinery Supply.

The total storage in the mainland reservoirs on the morning of Monday, 10th June, amounted to 85.61 million gallons shewing a decrease of 2.35 million gallons dur- ing the previous week. The week's consumption, including supplies to Water Boats and Hong Kong, amounted to 19.59 million gallons The yield from streams during the week was, therefore, 17.24 million gallons.

At a consumption rate of 3 million gallons per day, the storage in the Hong Kong Reservoirs is sufficient for at least two months. A supply for about the same period is available from the Kowloon Reservoirs at the present consumption rate.

Four tanks of a total capacity of 120,000 gallons were obtained from England in February and have been erected. Certain low level areas in the city have for some time been supplied from these tanks with 300,000 gallons of water a day from Lai Chi Kok Water Boat Dock.

The number of tanks has been gradually increased, the Chinese community assist- ing in obtaining Contractors to hasten their erection.

An additional 9 tanks are now being put in hand, and the capacity of some of the existing tanks is being increased. The total number of tanks will be about 26. These will be refilled about four times during every 24 hours.

The total capacity of these 26 tanks will be 750,000 gallons, or 3,000,000 gallons for the 24 hours.

Notices have from time to time been sent to the Press calling attention to the seriousness of the water position, and advertisements have been published restricting the hours of supply.

Since October, 1928, a weekly report on the Water situation has been submitted to the Executive Council for consideration as to when further restrictions should be intro- duced.

To relieve Mr. Purves, Waterworks Engineer, who is in charge of the distribution from the permanent sources of supply, three officers of the Public Works Department have been seconded for duty in connection with the emergency water supplies: Mr. Carpenter, A.D.P.W., being in charge, assisted by Messrs. Rouse and Graver. Mr. Rouse has been appointed Secretary to the Water Emergency Committee. A separate office has been formed to deal with this emergency work.

The Tsun Wan source of supply was investigated, and the necessary work for Deliveries to the tanks in Hong tapping this source was completed within one week. Kong commenced on Sunday 8th June. Approximately million gallons per day will be obtainable from this source.

80

The Sham Cheng supply, leased to Mr. Ruttonjee, which he has placed at our dis- posal, has also been examined, and arrangements are in train for the transport of this water to Hong Kong. It is hoped that million gallons of water per day will be avail- able from this source within one week.

The quantities transported from these sources will be gradually increased as more waterboats and lighters become available.

In addition to the supplies from the New Territories water is being transported from Wanginoon, from which an unlimited supply is available.

Many proposals have been investigated.

The first Shipping Company to make a spontaneous offer to transport supplies was the Douglas Company, and the first delivery (300 tons) from Foochow was made on the 10th June direct from one of their steamers to the tank near the Company's wharf.

week.

This Shipping Company has arranged for a regular supply of 500 to 600 tons a

On the 1st June, Mr. Carpenter interviewed Mr. Sutherland of the Indo-China Co., Mr. Johnson of the P. & O., Captain Hollands of the C.P.R., and Mr. Blackwall of the Blue Funnel Line as to the feasibility and practicability of their regular steamers, passing through Hong Kong in both directions. bringing any water which they may be able to carry. This question is now being further considered by the Committee.

In the meantime many offers from other Steamship Companies have been receiv- ed and accepted direct.

The use of tankers and lighters for the transport of water has received considera- tion, and the Committee are now arriving at a decision as to the number of each which will be required.

Numbers of Waterboats and lighters have already been chartered for the transport of water from the New Territories and elsewhere.

The question of obtaining lighters under the Emergency Regulations has not been overlooked, and the Law Officers of the Crown have drafted the necessary regulation giv- ing power to requisition.

Arrangements have been made with the Naval Authorities to obtain supplies of water from the Canton Delta, and they have placed at Government's disposal H.M.S. "Cherub", to bring water from Wangmoon. The first consignment arrived at 10 p.m. on the 8th June. A naval lighter has also been placed at our disposal for storage pur- poses.

The question of transporting water by the Kowloon-Canton Railway has been con- sidered, and the Manager of the Railway has been instructed to make 20 trucks suitable for this purpose. The various places along the Railway from which water can be obtain- ed are being investigated.

Information is being obtained through the Police Patrol boats as to any suitable stream courses on Lantao and the surrounding islands.

Cables have been sent to all surrounding ports asking what facilities they have for the export of water. Replies have been received and are under consideration.

The possibility of utilizing the China Sugar Refinery supply was considered, and stand pipes are being erected In this connection Messrs. Jardine Matheson & Co. as usual rendered every assistance.

The offer from the Naval Authorities of the Dry Dock for storage was considered, but it was found that the considerable amount of seepage which takes place would con- taminate and render unfit for consumption any water so stored. This storage could,

81

moreover, only be maintained by the use of a very large fleet of Tankers, owing to the long distances of transport. Further difficulty would arise due to the necessity of H. M. Ships docking elsewhere whilst the dock was used for water storage.

Sixteen nullah supplies in Hong Kong between Kennedy Road and Shaukiwan have been tapped and these will supply a considerable quantity of water for washing pur- poses. Notices that 'this water must be boiled' have been posted to warn the public that the water is not potable.

The A.P.C. have kindly lent two 50 ton tanks which are being erected in Kowloon (Waterloo Road) and this will furnish a plentiful supply from the old original Waterworks wells. Similar notices with regard to the water being non potable have been posted here.

The Godown Company have opened wells on their property at Kowloon Point for the purpose of supplying their launches and Ferry Boats, etc., and for washing pur- poses; the water being under the direct control of the Company.

The possibility of utilizing the Victoria Recreation Swimming Tank for storage pur- poses has been noted. The capacity is about 150,000 gallons, which could easily be in- creased should the tank be requisitioned for this purpose.

A tank at Kennedy Town has been set apart for the purpose of supplying water to launches at Hong Kong.

Numerous old deep Public wells, both in Hong Kong and Kowloon, are being opened up to supply water for washing purposes, it being clearly notified that such water is not to be used for potable purposes.

The Peninsula Hotel has arranged for a permit for an independent supply from Tin Kau, and Messrs. Watson & Co.'s Aerated Water Factory are likewise obtaining a supply from Junk Bay.

raised.

The question of cutting off all main supplies to W. C.'s is under consideration.

The question of having water distilled by the Naval Distillation plant has also been

The most urgent need at the present time is the conservation of the existing Reservoir supplies, which is being secured by every additional outside source of supply.

Appendix "C."

PROPOSALS OF THE KOWLOON RESIDENTS' ASSOCIATION.

The General Committee of this Association have carefully considered the Water Emergency at their Meeting on the 10th June and at a special meeting held on the 17th June, and in addition their Sub-Committee have met on several occasions to consider pro- posals to assist in coping with the situation.

The Association unanimously agree that the tank and well system of supply for Kowloon would be costly, unsatisfactory and unnecessary. The obvious and most satis- factory method of distribution is through the existing mains.

The Committee therefore submit schemes for the two divisions into which the pro- blem naturally divides itself.

Firstly-Immediate Requirements:

82

For immediate requirements a scheme has been submitted to the Secretary of the Water Emergency Committee by Mr. Easterbrook, in which it is proposed to pump water from the Lai Chi Kok water boat dock to the Piper's Hill reservoir whence it can be dis- tributed by the existing water distribution system. The Piper's Hill reservoir is at a level of 300 feet. To digress for a moment there are practically no limits as regards the pressure heads that high lift centrifugal pumps cannot overcome so long as the quantity delivered is not too small. Pumps have been made for a head of 3,500 feet.

We have been informed that with the present restrictions in Kowloon there is every prospect that this scheme will not be required for the reason that ten inches of rain will fill the reservoirs and this is one quarter of the total average rainfall for July, August and September during the past forty years. We can only regret that this con- templates a continued restricted supply for Kowloon and contains problematical factors. which we would rather see eliminated.

Secondly-Future Requirements:

The K. R. A. suggest that the 24" pipe line at present laid from the end of Nathan Road near Holt's Wharf to about two miles inland should be continued to the Reservoir being by-passed at filters and also cross connected to the Kowloon Supply mains at a low level-say 100 feet.

By fitting a branch to Holt's Wharf and also one to Kowloon Wharves any filtered water brought by ships could be put directly into this pipe and impelled up to the reser- voir or passed across to the ordinary distributing system. The 24" pipe has to be laid as part of the Shing Mun Scheme and the only additional expense would be the provision of a pump or pumps and the cost of the wharf branches.

Further, when the harbour pipe line is laid it should be possible partly to supply Hong Kong from ships at the wharves without waiting for the completion of the Shing Mun Scheme.

We have advocated the use of the existing mains for distribution and our proposals are entirely based on this method of supply. We would in conclusion come to a detail which could have immediate attention-we suggest that more than one discharge be fitted to each street fountain so that the long waits suffered by the Chinese community in the Peninsula may be reduced.

POSITION, ON 8TH JULY, 1929.

lows:

Hon. D. P. W. said: The position of the island supplies this morning is as fol-

Total in storage 157.79 million gallons.

Recent daily rate of depletion, 2.60 million gallons. Minimum number of days storage available (without rain and on 4 hours a day supply), 62 days.

A reduction to a single period of three hours per day will shortly have to be in- troduced however if no rain falls. This would reduce the daily rate of depletion, it is hoped, to approximately 2.10 million gallons a day.

83

By introducing one period of three hours a day of supply the City mains would re- quire to be filled only once per day instead of twice, as at present.

* By closing the principal mains from 6 p.m.-6 a.m. daily this figure could be reduced to 6.5 mill. galls. per day. Owing to additional fountains having been opened practically no saving has resulted by the reduction of 11⁄2 hours

per day supply.

1. Effect of Restrictions.-A constant supply to all Rider Main districts can only be given when the reservoirs are full or nearly so. It involves a consumption of 12 mil- lion gallons a day and is generally given only in the summer months of favourable years. Since 1st January, 1927, the total period of full supply has been 283 days.

2. 1st Restriction.—A 2 hours daily supply in Rider Main districts is the first re- striction following a constant supply. It involves a consumption of 8 million gallons a day, and since 1st January, 1927, has been in operation either in part or whole of the City for 390 days.

3. 2nd Restriction.-A constant supply with street fountains only in Rider Main districts giving a consumption of 7 million gallons a day. This has been in operation 178 days since 1st January, 1927. The consumption can be regulated by the number of foun- tains opened.

4. 3rd Restriction.-A. 12 hours supply with street fountains only in Rider Main districts. This restriction commenced on the 1st May, 1929.

5, 6, 7. Further restrictions of 7 hours, 51⁄2 hours and 4 hours have latterly had to be introduced with street fountains only in Rider Main districts involving consumption of 31, 3 and 2.9 million gallons a day respectively. Such restrictions, have not been neces- sary during the last 25 years.

The rainfall for the 12 months ending 30.6.29 as recorded at the Royal Obser- vatory, totalled 37.27" by far the lowest ever recorded for a continuous period of 12 months The previous lowest rainfall was in 1895 when 45.83" fell during that year. These figures speak for themselves.

84

The present water position is the most serious the Colony has had to face for very many years and it is not suprising that a house supply to all Rider Main Districts cannot be given at this critical time.

It was on 1st November, 1928, that the Rider Main Supply was discontinued, and a constant supply by street fountains only had to be introduced as at that time the storage in the Reservoirs had fallen to 1,410 million gallons and the consumption on full supply had just previously reached the maximum of about 12 million gallons a day.

The present storage in the Reservoirs is 162 million gallons and the consumption has been reduced to about 3 million gallons a day, due to restrictions and to the Water obtained from outside the Colony.

Not until the storage in the Reservoirs has again approached the figures for last November (1410 × 10.6 gallons) can restrictions be entirely removed.

During certain periods of every year restrictions have had to be resorted to and the supply from Street fountains has taken the place of the house supplies in the Rider Main districts.

It is most unfortunate that owing to the continued drought it has been found neces- sary to reduce the Street fountains supply and introduce the still more irksome Tank system, the water for which has to be obtained from outside sources.

The maximum consumption when the City is on full supply has been shewn to he 12 million gallons and with the present restrictions in force the consumption has been reduced to 3 million gallons.

The houses served by the Rider Mains are in the most thickly populated part of the City, and, owing to their height (4 storeys) and the difference in levels of the hill side upon which they are built, unless the city is divided into sections from East to West a supply of 2 hours to the whole Rider Main district would only result in unequal distribu- tion the lower storeys of the houses on the lower levels would alone obtain a supply, whilst the upper storeys and the higher level houses would obtain little or no water. The consumption would also be excessive in the houses obtaining a supply.

If a rider main supply were now introduced in the various sections of the City for 2 hours it would result in a rise in the consumption to 6 million gallons and this rate of consumption is impossible under the present circumstances.

The rider mains can be shut off from the principal mains independently without affecting the metered supplies, but when all or any section of the Rider Main supply is in operation, either direct to the houses or through the fountains, the principal mains from which they are fed must necessarily be in action.

The proposal to discontinue the free allowance of water to metered supplies is be- ing considered, and no doubt any move in this direction would have the desired effect of further restricting consumption.

A house supply to Rider Main properties at the present time is utterly out of the question, and no matter what supplies might be brought into the Colony they should be utilized to increase the present storage, and not the consumption, until the position has vastly improved. This cannot be too strongly emphasized.

TANK SYSTEM OF SUPPLY.

Á house service supply being impossible, the only course left is to supply through Tanks sufficient water at as convenient points as possible. If perfected, this system of supply from tanks becomes the exact equivalent of a constant supply by street fountains, a system which it has been frequently necessary to have recourse to in the past.

85

The Tank system has not yet been developed to its full capacity. By more fre- quent filling of the Tanks and with additional taps and lengths of piping the queues can be considerably reduced. This has already been done where the regular system has come into force; for instance in the case of the Tanks in Gilman and Centre Streets and at Western Market-which have been connected up and are supplied regularly by waterboats from Lai Chi Kok-the queues here have almost ceased to exist.

The extensions to the Brick Tanks on the Praya have just been completed, and these are being connected together so as to facilitate filling from lighters or waterboats. When fully developed this system should appreciably augment supplies.

When the existing low level tank system has been fully developed and the outside sources of supply have been increased it will be possible to introduce Tanks on a higher level zone of about 100 ft. above the sea, and when this extended system is in operation it will be possible still further to conserve the rapidly diminishing water supply on the

Island.

Centrifugal pumps, electrically driven, would deliver water to these tanks either from the large brick tanks on the Praya or direct from lighters. Long supply pipes with the necessary number of taps would be laid from these upper tanks so as to em- brace as large a district as possible and reduce carrying to a minimum.

Should there be a further continuance of the drought the position by October might be as follows:-

All houses as far as Caine Road level may then have to depend entirely on tank supplies.

Above that level, in order to avoid great expense, a very limited supply from the mains would be given if available. It is quite possible that during the winter the total draw-off from the mains would have to be reduced to less than 1 million gallons per day in order to make the existing storage last until the 1930 rains set in.

However, a third zone of tanks at about 250' above sea level is not impossible and will be considered, should the situation demand it.

It is again emphasized that to avoid waste and to get the most out of every gallon available as much water as possible should be carried. A supply through the mains re- sults in increased consumption and this method of supply must be eliminated for the present as far as possible.

SUPPLIES FROM THE MAINLAND.

There are at the moment 3 available sources of supply on the mainland, viz., from Laichikok, Tsun Wan and Sham Tseng, the last of which is expected to be in operation this week.

During the summer months it is anticipated that fully 2 million gallons a day can be obtained from these sources and transported to the Hong Kong tanks by water boats or lighters.

As these supplies begin to fail in the autumn the service from the West River, where there is unlimited water, will have to be further developed to meet the deficiency.

SUPPLY BY TANKERS OR COASTERS THROUGH TYTAM TUK.

Since the first meeting of the Water Emergency Committee additional information is available as to the cost of a supply of water by Tankers from Shanghai and though Government has already decided that the cost of such a scheme is prohibitive the figures now available are interesting and only confirm the previous decision.

According to the latest calculations a fleet of 30 Tankers would be necessary to maintain supply of 3,360,000 gallons a day and would cost approximately $1,845,000 a month. The estimate is based upon the following data:-

(1) The use of vessels of say 7,500 tons capacity each.

86

(2) Only two trips could be counted upon per month per vessel. This al- lows for discharging and refilling ballast, loading and discharging fresh water, passages to and from Shanghai, and with allowances for bad weather, tides, etc., a total period of say 15 days per return trip.

A further condition would be that the requisite number of loading and discharg- ing berths were always made available both at Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Government having decided that a regular service of large tankers to Tytam Tuk is impracticable. it now remains to deal with the question of a service of Coasters or lighters with tugs.

The Tytam Tuk pumps are much too large to deal satisfactorily with small quanti- ties. For example, it would take 500 tons of water to charge one rising main from Tytam Tuk to the tunnel entrance and 1,000 tons to charge the Tytam tunnel. It is considered that 5,000 tons a day, say, 1 million gallons, is the minimum quantity with which it is practicable to work. This could only be supplied by a regular service of coasters or lighters and by any occasional tankers obtainable on trip charter.

In anticipation of the possibility of such regular supplies being made available, a tank of 100,000 gallons capacity, capable of containing nearly an hour's supply for one pump, is being constructed, and before it is completed the necessary mooring accom- modation, piping, etc., could be in position.

This scheme could be in working order early in August and if it materialises it would appear unnecessary to proceed further with other schemes for pumping direct into Albany or Elliot Filter Beds at greater cost.

I would again emphasize the fact that an increase of the supply via Tytam Tuk Pumping Station cannot be used to obviate the necessity for a supply by Tanks on the sea front. We cannot hope to obtain enough water to give an increased supply through the mains and such water as we can obtain through the Tytam Tuk pumps must be utilized to conserve the diminishing supply in the reservoirs for the benefit of those areas which cannot possibly be supplied from Tanks on the sea front.

The following is a brief summary shewing the progress made in regard to emer- gency measures:

The number of lighters requisitioned for service is 18 having a total tonnage of 1,950 tons.

Eight water boats are now engaged in the transport of water to Tanks, having a tonnage of about 1,500 tons..

The "Fu Kwang", the small Tanker chartered for the Water Emergency Service, is capable of bringing 1,100 tons of water from Wang Mun and of doing two trips every three days. With the Admiralty Tug "Cherub" and the steamers "Paul Beau" and "Charles Hardouin", a supply of 1,500 tons daily should be obtainable from this source

The quantity of water obtainable from steamers in transit through Hong Kong is approaching 750 tons a day.

Arrangements for the chlorination of all the supplies from nullahs and wells are in hand to meet the requirements of the Hon. Director of Medical and Sanitary Services. Twenty-four nullahs will be supplied with the necessary equipment for this purpose. Nine well supplies are being similarly treated, and a considerable supply from these sources will shortly be available.

The Wangmoon Scheme originally proposed is being re-considered by the Shipping Sub-Committee who are considering alternative proposals to overcome the difficulties which would be experienced with small craft during bad weather conditions. Coasters have been suggested to take the place of Water Boats, Lighters and tugs. Their introduction will necessitate obtaining water from higher up the Canton delta as the draught of ves- sels going to Wangmoon cannot exceed 10 feet. The Shipping Sub-Committee will doubt- less deal with this matter in their report.

87

I should like to take this opportunity of acknowledging and thanking the Shipping Sub-Committee in particular, and the Emergency Committee in general, for their kind and valuable assistance.

Appendix "E."

Mr. S. T. Williamson said :--The Control of imported water was authorised by His Excellency the Governor on the 1st July and the Control Office was opened in the Post Office Building on that date, up to that time Mr. Rouse and Mr. Graver had been direct- ing the water to destinations as required. These Officers are still doing very valuable work and it has also been necessary to engage extra assistance with a view of getting together an organisation capable of handling anything that may be required.

We have up to the present been concentrating on building up a lighterage, towage and pumping service which is necessary to be able to handle the amounts of water now coming forward in order to minimise the possibility of delay to vessels carry- ing water to this port from outside sources whose owners have been good enough to carry the water freight free.

During last week we landed 13,700 tons which amounts to 3.07 million gallons and from what I can see there will be no difficulty in increasing these amounts very con- siderably.

We have chartered Waterboats, Lighters and the tug 'Perla'; the total deadweight carrying capacity is at present 5,345 tons.

We have gathered much useful information from the working of the "Fu Kwang" which will be of great assistance in the development of the Wangmoon or other West River sources of supply. At the present time this vessel is engaged on transporting a trial cargo from near Whampoa. Captain Thomas has already drawn samples from this area and the analysis was quite favourable. The advantage is that we can work coastal vessels or tankers with a draught of 17 to 18 feet which mean a decided difference in cost of transportation and also greater regularity of supplies during uncertain weather condi-

tions.

We have under consideration several vessels which are likely to fulfil requirements in this direction.

It seems that the supplies from outside sources could be eased slightly at the pre- sent time and the local sources of supply especially Tsun Wan and Sham Cheng could be developed in order to minimise wastage of water which is much cheaper than the water we are importing from other sources.

I am of opinion that a suitable steamer service can be arranged at short notice when the water can be dealt with more quickly on the Island.

Appendix "F."

Mr. R. Sutherland said :--Mr. Southorn and Gentlemen, I desire in the first place to voice the appreciation of the Sub-Committee for the acquiescence of the Government to their suggestion that a small executive body be formed. This move has been of consider- able help in dealing with the many matters engaging the attention of Mr. Williamson who will later speak on the general work of the Central Control Office. With regard to the re- marks of the Hon. Director of Public Works regarding Tankers, I would say for the in- formation of the Meeting that the figures quoted were prepared in consultation with a Member of this Sub-Committee who has had many years' experience of management of such craft. It will be remembered that at our last Sub-Committee Meeting it was arrang- ed that a visit should be made by a few Members of our Committee to Wangmoon. The position at that time was that the Government were considering an important scheme for conveyance of the major portion of supplies from the Wangmoon River. The Party left. for the West River by the "Kau Sing" on the morning of the 26th June, returning the same evening. Amongst others we took with us Captain Thomas, who has had many years' experience in navigating these waters and has actually run occasional trips with lighters to the West River. As a result of our general survey of the conditions it became unplea- santly obvious that the navigational difficulties, to say nothing of the risks during typhoon weather, were such that it was decided to recommend the Government to seek supplies of water from other sources. This opinion has been justified by recent difficulties with the tanker "Fu Kwang" which was recently ashore in the vicinity of Wangmoon for over 48 hours. We had to consider also the difficulty of looking after so many lighters at both ends of the Service during threatening typhoon weather and during actual storms. As an alternative we are now engaged in formulating a scheme for the employment of handy sized coasters, which would be able to carry over 2,000 tons of water on a draught of 15' to 17'. As regards Wangmoon these craft owing to restricted draught at the Bar would only be able to carry some 600 to 800 tons so that a new source of supply in the Canton River, where there is sufficient depth of water for a deep loading. has been in- vestigated and from preliminary tests it would seem that the water is in every respect as satisfactory as that obtained inside Wangmoon. In consultation with the Government, therefore, it may be possible to place alongside a pipe line at Tytam Tuk water which could be delivered by coasters as quickly as the Government can cope with it with their pumps. This amount I am given to understand would be about 5,000 tons per diem. The great advantage of substituting coasters for lighters is of course that they are self- contained units, can look after themselves in typhoon weather, and operate on many days when lighters would require to remain in shelter. Such steamers as are taken up would require to be sub-divided in their lower holders and injection valves fitted, and this matter is now engaging the attention of the Government Marine Surveyors and the owners of certain craft with which we have already obtained firm offers. I would also like to mention that we have received offers of contracts from the Netherlands Harbour Works in connection with supplies of water by tugs and lighters and this is at present being in- vestigated by the Executive Committee. I trust that my remarks may be helpful to you to grasp what we have in mind for the future and would mention that we have not been able to advance further than we have done pending a definite decision from the Govern- ment as to how they will relieve us of the water which we bring to the Colony. Tentative arrangements, however, are well-advanced and completion of Government schemes should with luck coincide with the time when further floating craft will be ready for service. In conclusion it is important to mention that by using coasters as indicated the cost of conveyance of water either to the Harbour or to the Taitam Pumps will be very moder- ate. Should there be any questions which Members would like to ask, Mr. Williamson or myself will deal with same to the best of our ability.

Appendix "G."

REPORT ON WATER EMERGENCY MEASURES

JUNE, JULY & AUGUST, 1929.

The Control Office was opened as per Gazette Notice attached herewith, on the 1st July; a good deal had already been done in making preliminary arrange- ments for the landing of Water as it arrived from outside sources by Mr. H. S. Rouse and Mr. G. S. Graver-the motor vessel "Fu Kwang" had already been chartered through the Shipping Sub-Committee from the Asiatic Petroleum Co., (N.C.) Ltd.

At the Shipping Sub-Committee Meeting held in the Council Chamber on the 25th June at which the Hon. the Colonial Secretary was present, it was decided that immediate attention should be given to the transport of water from Wangmoon and with this in view an inspection was arranged for the next day. On the morning of the 26th the following party left by the tug "Kau Sing"

Mr. E. W. CARPENTER, Mr. R. SUTHERLAND, Captain R D. THOMAS, Mr. J. CH. A. GUNDESEN

and Mr. S. T. WILLIAMSON.

Mr. Gundesen was with the party in order to tender for the carriage of water by the Netherlands Harbour Works Co., a tender was afterwards received from this Firm, the figure quoted for limited quantities being at the rate of $1.30 per ton delivered into tanks on the Praya.

It was obvious from this inspection that lighterage and towage would be ex- tremely difficult owing to the Wangmoon Bar and the tidal conditions in this vicinity. With the approach of the typhoon season it was realised that it would be impossible to keep in touch with the tugs and lighters with Native tug-masters and lighter-men in charge; they would also have to call at the Customs Station outward and home- ward, at Lin Tin which would mean a diversion of about four miles; treacherous banks and flats having to be negotiated in doing this rendered conditions more difficult.

The M. V. "Fu Kwang" was loading her first cargo of water at Wangmoon when the party arrived and a call was made on board. We also called on the Chinese Maritime Customs Station at Wangmoon which, it was found, was only a sub-station and that no clearances could be issued there, business had to be transacted through Kongmoon which necessitated the call at Lin Tin on the return voyage.

It was unanimously agreed by the party on discussing matters on the return trip to Hong Kong, that it would be advisable to retard the lighterage and towage scheme and to proceed with light draft coasters which had previously been under dis- cussion; these would be self-contained units in charge of European Officers and in touch by wireless, which would be of very great assistance in the_general working of a scheme of this nature. The depth of water on the Wangmoon Bar was found to be about 12 feet and this would definitely restrict the size of coasters to be employ- ed. Captain R. D. Thomas, with his extensive knowledge and long experience of the West River conditions, was closely questioned in connection with the possibility of working from other sources where a greater depth of water was available. It was found there were possibilities and Capt. Thomas was later asked to proceed to Canton with a representative of the Analytical Department, to draw samples from likely posi- tions; this was done and the results were very encouraging as the analytical reports covering bacteria and salt were found to be even better than the Wangmoon samples; with this in view the M.V. "Fu Kwang" was diverted to the West River after having loaded several cargoes at Wangmoon. The first West River cargo was drawn at Belcher Reach and later at Elliot Island, the lowest depth of water at this point being 25 feet; this now turned our attention to this locality as being the most favourable for

90

drawing supplies for the Colony on a basis that would considerably reduce expendi- ture-a chart dated the 15th August, showing the positions cargoes and samples were drawn from, also tabulated list showing analytical reports, are attached here- with and make an interesting study-positions from which cargoes were drawn are shown in red and samples in green, on the chart; these were mostly drawn by H.M. Tug "Cherub", M.V. "Fu Kwang" and by Capt. R. D. Thomas. It will be noted that it is possible to draw fresh water supplies direct from the river within 60 miles of this Colony and vessels with a draft of 25 feet can be worked, this means that ves- sels of 7,000/8,000 tons could be employed if necessary.

Various vessels were under offer to the Control Office, for charter, varying in size from 2,000 to 6,000 tons deadweight but the Consultative Committee and my- self realised that we had to delay until the last possible moment before fixing ton- nage as the heavy outgoings would then commence. The ordinary coasters required bulk-heading fore and aft and also thwart-ships. 8-inch/10-inch injection valves controlled from the deck were also to be fitted to each compartment for flooding pur- poses. From tenders received, it was found that the cost of fitting these wooden bulkheads and injection valves for a 2,000 tonner would be approximately $20,000 and for re-conditioning when the vessel was no longer required by Government $5,000, charter-hire for this type of vessel would be about $12,000 per month. When the time came, it was originally proposed to charter for 3 months with an option of a further 3 months-this would mean in the case of a coaster, that we would be definitely committed for :-

3 Months' Charter-hire at $12,000 or Fitting out, Bulkheads and Valves Re-conditioning

TOTAL

$36,000

20,000

5,000

$61,000

After careful consideration it was decided that it would be more economical to go in for a much larger vessel of the tanker class which would not require further bulkheading. As such vessels are expensive to time-charter it was considered advis- able to make tentative arrangements for the purchase of a 6,000-ton tanker built in 1900 and in every way suitable for the carriage of water and which was available on the London market; when not further required this vessel could probably have been sold at a price which would have meant very little loss to Government. Authority was given by Government on the 11th July and a low firm-offer was made with the usual covering clauses. The vessel was available for August delivery in the Far East, this synchronised with the time the Tytam Scheme (i.e. suction dredger and floating pipe line) would have been in position, had conditions made this necessary. The position at this time was serious and arrangements were definitely in train; fortunately rain fell and with the continued improvement we were able to relax and eventually to abandon this scheme. From calculations made, we expected to be able to land West River water in the Sump at the Tytam Bay pumping station, at a cost of under .35

cents per ton.

The Dredge and Floating Pipe-line Scheme was put forward by Mr. A. Ander- son, Port Engineer. (Plans showing the position of the dredge and pipe-line and the Pumping arrangement, are enclosed).

Arrangements were definitely made with the Netherlands Harbour Works Co., for the use of one of their suction dredgers and also one of their 21-inch flexible floating pipe lines mounted on pontoons; the Suction Dredger was capable of dis- charging from the carrying vessels into the Sump at the rate of 1,500/2,000 tons per hour from this point, the Tytam Station pumps would have delivered it into the Colony's water system.

The following craft were operated by the Control Office :--

H. M. TUG "CHERUB" :-This tug made 16 trips to Wangmoon and carried 2249 tons of water, she was also employed on pumping as the enclosed abstract shows. The Master, Capt. E. B. Colesworthy, did a great deal in getting the maximum amount of work out of this vessel and was most willing to assist at all times.

91

TANKER "FU KWANG" :-This light-drafted tanker was time chartered from the Asiatic Petroleum Co. (N.C.) Ltd. at the rate of Taels 500 per day with delivery and redelivery Shanghai. She was taken over on June 14th and redelivered to Owners on the 2nd August; 21 trips were made and the vessel delivered 24,755 tons of water into tanks. She was held up occasionally in Hong Kong owing to congestion through water not being drawn off quickly enough from the tanks on the Praya- under favourable conditions we found that it was possible for her to make, a trip a day. Captain J. C. Daily and his Officers did all that was possible and were instru- mental in procuring much valuable information in connection with samples and taking cargoes from the various points indicated on the chart previously referred to.

The cost of the water brought in by this vessel was approximately $1.70 per ton-this price however, includes the charter-hire for 10 days being time taken on the voyage from Shanghai and returning to that port, as the charter was fixed with "delivery, redelivery Shanghai'.

Mr. W. G. Goggin of the Bank Line, Ltd. acted as Charterers' Agent for the M. V. "Fu Kwang" and much was done by him in getting the most possible out of this vessel. An abstract of this vessel's working is attached.

"UNION WATER-BOATS" :-These vessels averaging about 240 tons dead- weight, did excellent work; 2 were chartered by the Control Office and 5 by the Water Authority-they were employed in transporting water from Tsun Wan and also on receiving ex ships from outside sources.

HOLT'S LIGHTERS :-5 steel lighters averaging about 300 tons deadweight were chartered by the Control Office, wooden bulkheads were fitted and in operation the lighters were found to be satisfactory but the bulkheading costs were rather expen- sive.

HONGKONG & KOWLOON, WHARF & GODOWN CO., LTD. -13 wooden lighters were taken over from the above Company, 10 being of 125 tons and 3 of 100 tons deadweight capacity; they were fitted with wooden bulkheads and gave good service but were found to be on the small side and not so efficient for the carriage of water as the steel lighters. The tug "Perla" and launch "Jadestone" were also chartered from this Firm; the tug "Perla" did much in reducing towage charges to a minimum on one trip she towed 1,200 tons in lighters from Tsun Wan, this proving to be the cheapest method of transporting water from this source, working out at well under 10 cents per ton.

LIGHTER "VERMONT" :-This lighter of 450-tons deadweight, belonging to the Standard Oil Co., was chartered and was found to be most efficient; this vessel was specially designed and fitted with bulkheads for the carriage of liquid cargoes which meant that further bulkheads were unnecessary and expenditure in this direction was obviated.

The Lighters were used mostly for taking delivery of water from incoming ships and discharging into tanks on the Praya, they were all hired at a flat rate basis. of $2.50 per ton per month, Hull insurance on "W.A." terms being effected by the Control Office for Government account.

All local craft were redelivered to Owners as on the 31st July and insurances cancelled from that date.

TANKS-Altogether, 21 Tanks were erected on the Praya, the Control Office had charge of 11, (5 on Praya West and 6 on Praya East), the Water Authority had 10. There were 6 Steel tanks, 3 Cement-concrete and 12 Brick Tanks.

The Steel and Concrete Tanks were the most satisfactory, the Brick Tanks gave a great deal of trouble through leaking and cracking. Attached is Plan show- ing position of Tanks, those handled by the Control Office are numbered No. 7 east- ward to No. 15).

92

With a view to handling the water efficiently, a motor pump was fitted at Tank No. 12 Praya East to pump from lighters into this tank, from the tank gravita- tion was effected by 4-inch balance pipes to Tanks No. 11, 13 and 15. A portable pulsometer pump was also fitted at No. 13 Tank, balance pipes were also fitted for the Western division of our Tanks, i.e. from No. 7 to the Douglas Wharf Tank which meant that all these Tanks could be pumped up at once and this was generally effected. from ships and lighters at Douglas Wharf.

The Douglas Steamship Co., Ltd., brought forward regular supplies in their vessels "Hai-Ning" "Hai-Ching" and "Hai-Yang" from Foochow, this water was run into ballast tanks at Foochow direct from the river and was pumped into the Western Tanks from the vessels alongside their Wharf, free of cost.

The river steamers "Paul Beau" and "Charles Hardouin" controlled by Woo Hay Tong, Esq. also brought large quantities similarly run into ballast tanks direct. from river near Wangmoon, a small charge was made for pumping which brought the cost to 15 cents per ton.

These were the cheapest sources of supply and I place them on record as being very convenient and quickly arranged in case of emergency.

The supplies from Shanghai, Manila and Singapore cost much more owing to the initial cost of the Water at these ports, the prices being .50 cents at Shanghai, .25 centavos at Manila and $1 at Singapore; the cost at Keelung was .50 sen and at Haiphong, 1 Piastre. Owing to these heavy costs, arrangements were made to stop these supplies and to further concentrate on the local supplies which had not been worked to full advantage, particularly Tsun Wan and Sham Cheng. A List is attached which sets out the quantities in tons carried "freight free" by the various Shipping Companies and I trust that some acknowledgment for the services so willingly rendered, will be made to those concerned.

MEETINGS --Bi-weekly meetings were held in Mr. E. W. Carpenter's Office at the Public Works Department, these being attended by Messrs. E. W. Carpenter, Government Water Emergency Officer (Chairman). A. B. Purves, Water Authority, S. T. Williamson, Controller of Imported Water Supplies and H. S. Rouse, Secretary.

I consider these Meetings were most important as the water position was dis- cussed in detail and this was the means of enabling the Control Office to forecast and determine when it was necessary to launch out on the schemes which would have meant so much expenditure when definite commitments had been made. Minutes of Meetings are attached.

Owing to the very changed water position in the Colony we were able, on the 31st July, to stop the importation of water and to redeliver to Owners all craft that were engaged on the transportation of water; we were also able to close the Control Office on the 17th of August. There are, however, still a few minor items outstand- ing which are being attended to from Mr. Rouse's Office in the Public Works De- partment.

A total of 65,364 tons or 14,647,776 gallons was the amount handled by the Control Office.

The total sum expended by the Control Office amounted to H$182,147.85 this covering tank construction, cost of water, transportation charges which includes lighter hire and bulkheads Sham Cheng and Tai Shui Hang supplies, "Fu Kwang" hire and disbursements and also cost of temporary moorings; several credits are due in connection with the above but these cannot be determined until decisions have been made regarding dismantling of Tanks and Pipe-lines.

In conclusion, I wish to place on record my appreciation of the very great as- sistance given me at all times by the Consultative Committee, Messrs. R. Sutherland O.B.E., W. G. Goggin and J. M. McHutchon. Frequent Meetings were held in the Control Office and many further discussions took place at different times. Minutes of Control Office Meetings are attached.

93

Mr. H. S. Rouse deserves a great deal of credit for the hard work and long hours that he most willingly put in; he has been a most able Secretary. Mr. Graver, Mr. Rouse's Assistant, has carried out his duties with marked ability and the re- mainder of the Staff carried out their duties efficiently.

The services of Captain R. D. Thomas were courteously placed at our disposal by the Hongkong & Kowloon Wharf and Godown Co., Ltd, and proved to be most valuable in connection with towage and lighterage; further, his long experience of tidal conditions in the Canton River was of great assistance in developing suitable sources of supply, as has been previously referred to.

The object of this Report is to place on record the experience and data collect- ed during the water emergency by the Control Office and any amplification deemed necessary by Government will have my best attention.

Controller of Imported Water Supplies.

WATER EMERGENCY MEASURES UNDERTAKEN BY THE

DRAINAGE OFFICE.

NULLAH SUPPLIES.

At the beginning of the emergency it was decided to make use of nullah water by piping it from suitable dams or intakes to convenient points for standpipes or taps.

The following supply stations were quickly established and put into operation :-

Star Street.

Victoria Nullah at Queen's Road East.

Albany Nullah at Boundary Path, lower Tram Station.

Wellington Street (from Glenealy Nullah).

No. 12 Bridge, Shaukiwan, main nullah,

No. 12 Bridge, Shaukiwan, west branch.

Tai Hang Village.

Cadogan Street.

Beach Street.

Pokfulam Road (from Shektongtsui Nullah).

Albany Nullah at Queen's Road East.

Albany Nullah at Kennedy Road.

Albany Nullah at MacDonnell Road.

Duddell Street

Hing Hon Road.

Bonham Road, junction with Western Street.

Nullah in Colonial Cemetery.

Nullah in Village Road.

P.W.D. annexe and garage (from Albany Nullah).

Matheson Street (from Sugar Refinery main).

Pennington Street (from Sugar Refinery main).

94

A few days after the completion of these stations it was decided that it was un- desirable to supply nullah water without chlorination, so under instructions all the instal- lations were put temporarily out of action by the removal of the taps. The construction of four-hundred-gallon wooden tanks was put in hand for chlorinating, to be erected in groups of three at each station. When these tanks had been installed in Wellington Street, at Victoria Nullah, and in Tai Hang Village, it was decided that as the water short- age was less acute the construction of further tanks might be allowed to fall into abey- ance. Shortly afterwards the removal of the piping from the nullahs was begun, except where it was thought that permanent supply stations would be of use for street watering and house cleansing purposes.

WELL SUPPLIES.

The following wells were opened up and investigated. It was decided that, as in the case of the nullahs, the water should be chlorinated before distribution:-

Well at top of D'Aguilar Street.

Well at "Homestead", Government flats.

Well near Glenealy Nullah.

Well in Recreation Ground, Wong-Nei-Chong

Well within Race Course, Wong-Nei-Chong.

Well at Central Market.

Well at Mataukok Slaughter House.

Well in old leather factory, Mataukok.

Well in rear of H.H.I.L. 260, Bulkeley Street.

Well in yard of K.C.R., Chatham Road.

Well in Cemeteries Valley, Homuntin.

The three most important of these well supplies were the following:

(a) Well within Race Course at Wong-Nei-Chong-

A good supply of water was found here, and early in the Emergency it was decided to put in hand a scheme for installing a motor and pump for supplying concrete tanks to be erected on the lower slopes of Mor- rison Hill, near the foot of Stubbs Road. From these tanks the water, after chlorination, would gravitate to various selected points, such as the open space near Wantsai Market. The work had hardly been start- ed when the water shortage became much less acute; however, it was decided to proceed with the scheme in view of the opinion of the H.S.D. that such a source of supply would be of permanent value for sanitary purposes in the congested Wantsai district.

(b) Well at the Slaughter House, Mataukok.

This gave a useful supply which was adapted to flushing purposes by the purchase and erection of a motor pump of the "Duro" type.

(c) Well in Cemeteries Valley, Homuntin.

This well, which used to be one of the main supplies of Kowloon, gave such a good yield that it was decided to accept the offer of the Asiatic Petroleum Co. to lend two fifty-ton tanks, which were duly installed in Waterloo Road. An electric cable was specially extended, and a pump and motor were established. The whole plant gave excellent results, for which reason it was decided, when the emergency had ceased to exist, to place this supply station upon a permanent basis. Accordingly one of the two tanks, and the pump and motor, were purchased by Government, and the second tank was returned to the Asiatic Petroleum Company, who had so kindly assisted in the matter.

95

MISCELLANEOUS WORKS.

A flushing system was installed in the Western Market; a supply was piped to the Kennedy Town Slaughter House; levels were taken with a view to the future use of the old well at Wantsai Gap; and various works of a minor nature were undertaken which do not call for special mention.
