HEREAS by an Order in Council dated the 29th day of February, 1868, made by Her Majesty

    in exercise of the powers conferred upon Her by the Merchant Shipping Act Amendment Act, 1862, Her Majesty was pleased to direct that the ships of Denmark the certificates of Danish nationality and registry of which were dated on and after the 1st October, 1867, should be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in the said certificates of Danish nationality and registry:

And whereas by another Order in Council dated the 30th day of December, 1878, Her Majesty was pleased to direct as regards Danish steam ships that if the owner or master of any merchant ship belonging to the Kingdom of Denmark and measured after the 1st day of October, 1878, which is propelled by steam or any other power requiring engine-room, should desire the allowance for engine-room in his ship to be estimated under the rules for engine-room measurement and allowance applicable to British ships instead of under the Danish rule, the engine-room should be measured and the allowance calculated according to the British rules:

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST FEBRUARY, 1896.

And whereas by another Order in Council dated the 20th day of April, 1883, Her Majesty was further pleased to direct that in the event of the net registered tonnage of merchant ships belonging to the said Kingdom of Denmark, which are propelled by steam or any other power requiring engine-room estimated under the British rules, being denoted in the said certificates of Danish nationality and registry issued on or after the 1st day of September, 1882, such ships should be deemed to be of the tonnage so denoted in the said certificates:

And whereas by Section 84 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894, it is enacted that whenever it appears to Her Majesty the Queen in Council that the tonnage regulations of that Act have been adopted by any foreign country and are in force there, Her Majesty in Council may order that the ships of that country shall, without being remeasured in Her Majesty's dominions, be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in their certificates of registry or other national papers in the same manner, to the same extent, and for the same purposes as the tonnage denoted in the certificate of registry of a British ship is deemed to be the tonnage of that ship:

And whereas it has been made to appear to Her Majesty that the tonnage regulations of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894, have been adopted by the Government of His Majesty the King of Denmark, and that such regulations are now in force in that country, having come into operation on the 1st day of April, 1895:

And whereas there still are or may be ships belonging to the Kingdom of Denmark to which the herein-before recited Orders of the 29th February, 1868, the 30th December, 1878, and the 20th April, 1883, may respectively apply, and it is expedient not to revoke the same, but to let the said recited Orders remain in force so long as there are any ships to which the same may so respectively apply :

And whereas the provisions of Section one of the Rules Publication Act, 1893, have been complied with:

NOW, THEREFORE, Her Majesty (in pursuance and exercise of the powers herein-before mentioned) is hereby pleased, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, to decree that the merchant ships of the Kingdom of Denmark the measurement whereof shall on or after the 1st day of April, 1895, have been ascertained and denoted in the certificates of registry or other national papers of such ships, shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in their certificates of registry or other national papers in the same manner, to the same extent, and for the same purposes as the tonnage denoted in the certificate of registry of a British ship is deemed to be the tonnage of that ship.

(1) TAI WAN NORTH COAST-EXISTENCE OF SUNKEN REEFS OFF KIRUN KO (KELUNG HARBOUR).

Information has been received from Lieutenant Ogura I. N., dated 28th November 1895, that he has found the following sunken reefs during Kelung harbour survey :-

(1) A rock, with a depth of 34 fathoms on it at low water springs, lies N. 77° W. distant 17 miles from Kelung island summit (560 ft.), and another rock, with a depth of 3 fathoms on it, lies further distant 1 cables at the same direction from the above.

The two rocks are named Shin-roa (new reef), and there are depths of 44 to 5 fathoms close around them, with 7 to 16 fathoms between. It is very probable that Audacious rock is one of these rocks. (2) A rock, with a depth of 22 fathoms on it at low water springs, lies S. 44° W. distant 8 cables from Kelung island summit. The rock is the shoalest part of a reef (named Kitsu-hoan-chotaa by natives) extending at the same direction from the island, and there are depths of 2 to 3 fathoms between it and the island.

This Notice affects the following Naval charts :-Nos. 122, 284.

(2) TAI WAN NORTH-WEST COAST TAMSUI HARBOUR-NON-EXHIBITION OF CHINESE BEACON LIGHT.

According to the report of Lieutenant Ogura I. N., dated 28th November 1895, at the present, the Chinese beacon light is not exhibited in consequence of its great damage.

The Minutes of the last Meeting, held on the 5th December, 1895, were read and confirmed. PAPER.-The Colonial Secretary, by command of His Excellency the Governor, laid on the table the report by the Director of Public Works on the cost of constructing the proposed road from Victoria Gap to Mount Kellet Road, and moved that it be referred to the Public Works Committee.

The Director of Public Works seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

REPORT OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.-The Colonial Secretary, by command of His Excellency the Governor, laid on the table the reports of the Finance Committee dated 5th and 14th December, 1895, (Nos. 9 and 10).

QUESTIONS. Mr. BELILIOS, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions :-

Will the Government be good enough to say why (experiments having shown the practicability of such a course) steps are not taken to pump up sea water to the higher levels with which to wash out the drains?

Will the Government kindly inform the Council of the reasons for the suspension, for many months, of all work upon, and apparent indefinite postponement of completion of, the base and pedestal for the Jubilee statue of Her Majesty the Queen? Is there any insuperable obstacle in the way of the erection of this statue, which has now for nearly a year been interned in a godown, instead of being placed in the position for which it was designed?

The Colonial Secretary replied.

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to prevent doubts as to the validity of documents heretofore sealed with the Seal of the Colonial Court of Admiralty of Hongkong.

HEREAS a seal, bearing the inscription "Colonial Court of Admiralty of Hongkong," has been used in the Registry of the Supreme Court for proceedings in the Admiralty Jurisdiction of the said Court. And whereas doubts have been expressed whether the use of the said seal was duly authorized.

Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:

1. Every writ, warrant, release, commission, attachment, or other instrument which has hitherto been issued from the Registry of the Supreme Court sealed with the above mentioned seal, shall, to all intents and for all purposes, be taken to have, and to have had, the same force and effect as if it had been issued, sealed with the seal of the Supreme Court, as authorized by section 6 of Ordinance 12 of 1873.

2. This Ordinance shall not come into operation unless and until the Governor notifies by Proclamation that it is Her Majesty's pleasure not to disallow the same and, there- after, it shall come into operation upon such day as the Governor shall notify by the same or any other Procla- mation.

Objects and Reasons.

Section 2 of the Colonial Courts of Admiralty Act, 1890, constituted the Supreme Court of this Colony a Colonial Court of Admiralty. The inscription on the former Vice- Admiralty Court Seal was, thereupon, altered to "Colonial Court of Admiralty of Hongkong," in 1891, and the Seal as altered was used for the Colonial Court of Admiralty.

As, however, the Colonial Court of Admiralty is, in reality, the Supreme Court exercising its Admiralty Juris- diction, it would seem the more correct practice to use, in Admiralty matters, the Supreme Court Seal which is described in section 6 of Ordinance 12 of 1873. In order, however, to prevent any question as to the validity of documents heretofore sealed with the Seal bearing the inscription "Colonial Court of Admiralty of Hongkong," it is deemed advisable to give by Ordinance statutory validity to such documents.

(2) A person shall be deemed to be in possession of goods or of the documents of title to goods, where the goods or documents are in his actual custody or are held by any other person subject to his control or for him or on his behalf: (3) The expression "goods" shall include wares and

merchandise:

(4) The expression "document of title" shall include any bill of lading, dock warrant, warehouse- keeper's certificate, and warrant or order for the delivery of goods, and any other document used in the ordinary course of business as proof of the possession or control of goods, or author- ising or purporting to authorise, either by endorsement or by delivery, the possessor of the document to transfer or receive goods there- by represented:

(5) The expression "pledge" shall include any con- tract pledging, or giving a lien or security on, goods, whether in consideration of an original advance or of a any

further or continuing advance

or of any pecuniary liability:

(6) The expression "person" shall include any body

of persons corporate or unincorporate. Dispositions by Mercantile Agents.

2. (1) Where a mercantile agent is, with the consent of the owner, in possession of goods or of the documents of title to goods, any sale, pledge, or other disposition of the goods, made by him when acting in the ordinary course of business of a mercantile agent, shall, subject to the provi- sions of this Ordinance, be as valid as if he were expressly authorised by the owner of the goods to make the same; provided that the person taking under the disposition acts in good faith, and has not at the time of the disposition notice that the person making the disposition has not authority to make the same.

(2) Where a mercantile agent has, with the consent of the owner, been in possession of goods or of the documents of title to goods, any sale, pledge, or other disposition, which would have been valid if the consent had continued, shall be valid notwithstanding the determination of the consent: provided that the person taking under the disposi- tion has not at the time thereof notice that the consent has been determined.

(3) Where a mercantile agent has obtained possession of any documents of title to goods by reason of his being or having been, with the consent of the owner, in possession of the goods represented thereby, or of any other documents of title to the goods, his possession of the first-mentioned documents shall, for the purposes of this Ordinance, be deemed to be with the consent of the owner.

(4) For the purposes of this Ordinance the consent of the owner shall be presumed in the absence of evidence to the contrary.

3. A pledge of the documents of title to goods shall be deemed to be a pledge of the goods.

4. Where a mercantile agent pledges goods as security for a debt or liability due from the pledgor to the pledgee before the time of the pledge, the pledgee shall acquire no further right to the goods than could have been enforced by the pledgor at the time of the pledge.

5. The consideration necessary for the validity of a sale, pledge, or other disposition, of goods, in pursuance of this Ordinance, may be either a payment in cash, or the delivery or transfer of other goods, or of a document of title to goods, or of a negotiable security, or any other valuable consideration; but where goods are pledged by a mercantile agent in consideration of the delivery or transfer of other goods, or of a document of title to goods, or of a negotiable security, the pledgee shall acquire no right or interest in the goods so pledged in excess of the value of the goods, documents, or security when so delivered or transferred in exchange.

6. For the purposes of this Ordinance an agreement made with a mercantile agent through a clerk or other person authorised in the ordinary course of business to make contracts of sale or pledge on his behalf shall be deemed to be an agreement with the agent.

7. (1) Where the owner of goods has given possession of the goods to another person for the purpose of consign- ment or sale, or has shipped the goods in the name of another person, and the consignee of the gools has not had notice that such person is not the owner of the goods, the consiguce shall, in respect of advances made to or for the use of such person, have the same lien on the goods as if such person were the owner of the goods, and may transfer any such lien to another person.

(2) Nothing in this section shall limit or affect the validity of any sale, pledge, or disposition, by a mercantile agent.

Dispositions by Sellers and Buyers of Goods.

8. Where a person, having soll goods, continues, or is, in possession of the goods or of the documents of title to the goods, the delivery or transfer by that person, or by a mercantile agent acting for him, of the goods or documents of title under any sale, pledge, or other disposition thereof, or under any agreement for sale, pledge, or other disposition thereof, to any person receiving the same in good faith and without notice of the previous sale, shall have the same effect as if the person making the delivery or transfer were expressly authorised by the owner of the goods to make the

same.

9. Where a person, having bought or agreed to buy goods, obtains with the consent of the seller possession of the goods or the documents of title to the goods, the delivery or transfer, by that person or by a mercantile agent acting for him, of the goods or documents of title, under any sale, pledge, or other disposition thereof, or under any agreement for sale, pledge, or other disposition thereof, to any person receiving the same in good faith and without notice of any lien or other right of the original seller in respect of the goods, shall have the same effect as if the person making the delivery or transfer were a mercantile agent in possession of the goods or documents of title with the consent of the owner. 10. Where a document of title to goods has been lawfully transferred to a person as a buyer or owner of the goods, and that person transfers the document to a person who takes the document in good faith and for valuable consider- ation, the last-mentioned transfer shall have the same effect

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRURAY, 1896.

for defeating any vendor's lien or right of stoppage in transitu as the transfer of a bill of lading has for defeating the right of stoppage in transitu.

Supplemental.

11. For the purposes of this Ordinance, the transfer of a document may be by endorsement, or, where the document is by custom or by its express terms transferable by delivery, or makes the goods deliverable to the bearer, then by delivery.

12. (1) Nothing in this Ordinance shall authorise an agent to exceed or depart from his authority as between himself and his principal, or exempt him from any liability, civil or criminal, for so doing.

(2) Nothing in this Ordinance shall prevent the owner of goods from recovering the goods from an agent or his trustee in bankruptcy at any time before the sale or pledge thereof, or shall prevent the owner of goods pledged by an agent from having the right to redeem the goods at any time before the sale thereof, on satisfying the claim for which the goods were pledged, and paying to the agent, if by him required, any money in respect of which the agent would by law be entitled to retain the goods or the docu- ments of title thereto, or any of them, by way of lien as against the owner, or from recovering from any person with whom the goods have been pledged any balance of money remaining in his hands as the produce of the sale of the goods after deducting the amount of his lien.

(3) Nothing in this Ordinance shall prevent the owner of goods sold by an agent from recovering from the buyer the price agreed to be paid for the same, or any part of that price, subject to any right of set off on the part of the buyer against the agent.

13. The provisions of this Ordinance shall be construed in amplification and not in derogation of the powers exer- ciseable by an agent independently of this Ordinance.

14 The enactments mentioned in the schedule to this Ordinance are hereby repealed as from the commencement of this Ordinance, but this repeal shall not affect any right acquired or liability incurred before the commencement of this Ordinance under any enactment hereby repealed.

15. This Ordinance shall commence and come into opera- tion on the

day of

one thousand eight hundred and ninety-six.

Reasons and Objects.

The object of this Ordinance is to bring into force, in this Colony, the provisions of the Factors Act 1889, which embodies the law of England in relation to this subject. At present, some of the Acts repealed in England are still in force in Hongkong. It is desirable that one Ordinance should deal completely with this matter.

ENTITLED

An Ordinance for codifying the Law relating to the Sale of Goods.

E it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

PART I.

FORMATION OF THE CONTRACT. Contract of Sule.

1. (1) A contract of sale of goods is a contract whereby the seller transfers or agrees to transfer the property in goods to the buyer for a money consideration, called the price. There may be a contract of sale between one part owner and another.

(2) A contract of sale may be absolute or conditional.

(3) Where under a contract of sale the property in the goods is transferred from the seller to the buyer the contract is called a sale; but where the transfer of the property in the goods is to take place at a future time or subject to some condition thereafter to be fulfilled the contract is called an agreement to sell.

(4) An agreement to sell becomes a sale when the time elapses or the conditions are fulfilled subject to which the property in the goods is to be transferred.

2. Capacity to buy and sell is regulated by the general law concerning capacity to contract, and to transfer and acquire property.

Provided that where necessaries are sold and delivered to an infant, or minor, or to a person who by reason of mental incapacity or drunkenness is incompetent to con- tract, he must pay a reasonable price therefor.

Necessaries in this section mean goods suitable to the condition in life of such infant or minor or other person, and to his actual requirements at the time of the sale and delivery.

Formalities of the Contract.

3. Subject to the provisions of this Ordinance and of any enactment in that behalf, a contract of sale may be made in writing (either with or without seal), or by word of mouth, or partly in writing and partly by word of mouth, or may be implied from the conduct of the parties.

Provided that nothing in this section shall affect the law relating to corporations.

4. (1) A contract for the sale of any goods of the value of one hundred dollars or upwards shall not be enforceable by action unless the buyer shall accept part of the goods so sold, and actually receive the same, or give something in earnest to bind the contract, or in part payment, or unless some note or memorandum in writing of the contract be made and signed by the party to be charged or his agent in that behalf.

(2) The provisions of this section apply to every such contract, notwithstanding that the goods may be intended to be delivered at some future time, or may not at the time of such contract be actually made, procured, or provided, or fit or ready for delivery, or some act may be requisite for the making or completing thereof, or rendering the same fit for delivery.

(3) There is an acceptance of goods within the meaning of this section when the buyer does any act in relation to the goods which recognises a pre-existing contract of sale whether there be an acceptance in performance of the

contract or not.

Subject matter of Contract.

5. (1) The goods which form the subject of a contract of sale may be either existing goods, owned or possessed by the seller, or goods to be manufactured or acquired by the seller after the making of the contract of sale, in this Ordinance called "future goods."

(2) There may be a contract for the sale of goods, the acquisition of which by the seller depends upon a con- tingency which may or may not happen.

(3) Where by a contract of sale the seller purports to effect a present sale of future goods, the contract operates as an agreement to sell the goods.

6. Where there is a contract for the sale of specific goods, and the goods without the knowledge of the seller have perished at the time when the contract is made, the contract is void.

7. Where there is an agreement to sell specific goods, and subsequently the goods, without any fault on the part of the seller or buyer, perish before the risk passes to the buyer, the agreement is thereby avoided.

The Price.

8. (1) The price in a contract of sale may be fixed by the contract, or may be left to be fixed in manner thereby agreed, or may be determined by the course of dealing between the parties.

(2) Where the price is not determined in accordance with the foregoing provisions the buyer must pay a reasonable price. What is a reasonable price is a question of fact dependent on the circumstances of each particular

case.

9. (1) Where there is an agreement to sell goods on the terms that the price is to be fixed by the valuation of a third party, and such third party cannot or does not make such valuation, the agreement is avoided; provided that if the goods or any part thereof have been delivered to and appropriated by the buyer he must pay a reasonable price therefor.

(2) Where such third party is prevented from making the valuation by the fault of the seller or buyer, the party not in fault may maintain an action for damages against the party in fault.

Conditions and Warranties.

10. (1) Unless a different intention appears from the terms of the contract, stipulations as to time of payment are not deemed to be of the essence of a contract of sale. Whether any other stipulation as to time is of the essence of the contract or not depends on the terms of the contract. (2) In a contract of sale "month" means prima facie calendar month.

11. (1) Where a contract of sale is subject to any condition to be fulfilled by the seller, the buyer may waive the condition, or may elect to treat the breach of such condition as a breach of warranty, and not as a ground for treating the contract as repudiated.

(2) Whether a stipulation in a contract of sale is a condition, the breach of which may give rise to a right to treat the contract as repudiated, or a warranty, the breach of which may give rise to a claim for damages but not a right to reject the goods and treat the contract as repudiated, depends in each case on the construction of the contract. A stipulation may be a condition, though called a warranty in the contract:

(3) Where a contract of sale is not severable, and the buyer has accepted the goods, or part thereof, or where the contract is for specific goods, the property in which has passed to the buyer, the breach of any condition to be fulfilled by the seller can only be treated as a breach of warranty, and not as a ground for rejecting the goods and treating the contract as repudiated, unless there be a term of the contract, express or implied, to that effect.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

(4) Nothing in this section shall affect the case of any condition or warranty, fulfilment of which is excused by law by reason of impossibility or otherwise.

12. In a contract of sale, unless the circumstances of the contract are such as to show a different intention, there is-

(1) An implied condition on the part of the seller that in the case of a sale he has a right to sell the goods, and that in the case of an agree- ment to sell he will have a right to sell the goods at the time when the property is to pass : (2) An implied warranty that the buyer shall have and

enjoy quiet possession of the goods:

(3) An implied warranty that the goods shall be free from any charge or encumbrance in favour of a

any third party, not declared or known to the buyer before or at the time when the contract is made.

13. Where there is a contract for the sale of goods by description, there is an implied condition that the goods shall correspond with the description; and if the sale be by sample, as well as by description, it is not sufficient that the bulk of the goods corresponds with the sample if the goods do not also correspond with the description.

14. Subject to the provisions of this Ordinance and of any enactment in that behalf, there is no implied warranty or condition as to the quality or fitness for any particular purpose of goods supplied under a contract of sale, except as follows:-

(1) Where the buyer, expressly or by implication, makes known to the seller the particular pur-

pose

for which the goods are required, so as to show that the buyer relies on the seller's skill or judgment, and the goods are of a description which it is in the course of the seller's business to supply (whether he be the manufacturer or not), there is an implied condition that the goods shall be reasonably fit for such purpose, provided that in the case of a contract for the sale of a specified article under its patent or other trade name, there is no implied condition as to its fitness for any particular purpose: (2) Where goods are bought by description from a seller who deals in goods of that description (whether he be the manufacturer or not), there is an implied condition that the goods shall be of merchantable quality; provided that if the buyer has examined the goods, there shall be no implied condition as regards defects which such examination ought to have revealed: (3) An implied warranty or condition as to quality or fitness for a particular purpose may be annexed by the usage of trade:

(4) An express warranty or condition does not negative a warranty or condition implied by this Ordinance unless inconsistent therewith.

Sale by Sample.

15. (1) A contract of sale is a contract for sale by sample where there is a term in the contract, express or implied, to that effect.

(2) In the case of a contract for sale by sample-

(a) There is an implied condition that the bulk shall correspond with the sample in quality:

(b) There is an implied condition that the buyer shall have a reasonable opportunity of com- paring the bulk with the sample:

(c) There is an implied condition that the goods shall be free from any defect, rendering them unmerchantable, which would not be apparent on reasonable examination of the sample.

PART II.

17. (1) Where there is a contract for the sale of specifie or ascertained goods the property in them is transferred to the buyer at such time as the parties to the contract intend it to be transferred.

(2) For the purpose of ascertaining the intention of the parties regard shall be had to the terms of the contract, the conduct of the parties, and the circumstances of the

case.

18. Unless a different intention appears, the following are rules for ascertaining the intention of the parties as to the time at which the property in the goods is to pass to the buyer.

Rule 1.-Where there is an unconditional contract for the sale of specific goods in a deliverable state, the property in the goods passes to the buyer when the contract is made, and it is immaterial whether the time of payment or the time of delivery, or both, be postponed.

Rule 2-Where there is a contract for the sale of specific goods and the seller is bound to do something to the goods, for the purpose of putting them into a deliver- able state, the property does not pass until such thing be done, and the buyer has notice thereof. Rule 3.-Where there is a contract for the sale of specific goods in a deliverable state, but the seller is bound to weigh, measure, test, or do some other act or thing with reference to the goods for the purpose of ascertaining the price, the property does not pass until such act or thing be done, and the buyer has notice thereof.

""

Rule 4.-When goods are delivered to the buyer on approval or on sale or return or other similar terms the property therein passes to the buyer :-

(a) When he signifies his approval or acceptance to the seller or does any other act adopting the

transaction:

(b) If he does not signify his approval or acceptance to the seller but retains the goods without giving notice of rejection, then, if a time has been fixed for the return of the goods, on the expiration of such time, and, if no time has been fixed, on the expiration of a reasonable time. What is a reasonable time is a question of fact. Rule 5-(i) Where there is a contract for the sale of unascertained or future goods by description, and goods of that description and in a deliverable state are unconditionally appropriated to the contract, either by the seller with the assent of the buyer, or by the buyer with the assent of the seller, the pro- perty in the goods thereupon passes to the buyer. Such assent may be express or implied, and may be given either before or after the appropriation is made: (ii) Where, in pursuance of the contract, the seller delivers the goods to the buyer or to a carrier or other bailee (whether named by the buyer or not) for the purpose of transmission to the buyer, aud does not reserve the right of disposal, he is deemed to have unconditionally appropriated the goods to the

contract.

19. (1) Where there is a contract for the sale of specific goods or where goods are subsequently appropriated to the contract, the seller may, by the terms of the contract or appropriation, reserve the right of disposal of the goods until certain conditions are fulfilled. In such case, not- withstanding the delivery of the goods to the buyer, or to a carrier or other bailee for the purpose of transmission to the buyer, the property in the goods does not pass to the buyer until the conditions imposed by the seller are fulfilled.

(2) Where goods are shipped, and by the bill of lading the goods are deliverable to the order of the seller or his agent, the seller is prima facie deemed to reserve the right of disposal.

(3) Where the seller of goods draws on the buyer for the price, and transmits the bill of exchange and bill of lading to the buyer together to secure acceptance or payment of the bill of exchange, the buyer is bound to return the bill of lading if he does not honour the bill of exchange, and if he wrongfully retains the bill of lading the property in the goods does not pass to him.

20. Unless otherwise agreed, the goods remain at the with property. seller's risk until the property therein is transferred to the buyer, but when the property therein is transferred to the

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

buyer, the goods are at the buyer's risk whether delivery has been made or not.

Provided that where delivery has been delayed through the fault of either buyer or seller the goods are at the risk of the party in fault as regards any loss which might not have occurred but for such fault.

Provided also that nothing in this section shall affect the duties or liabilities of either seller or buyer as a bailee of the goods of the other party.

Transfer of Title.

21. (1) Subject to the provisions of this Ordinance. where goods are sold by a person who is not the owner thereof, and who does not sell them under the authority or with the consent of the owner, the buyer acquires no better title to the goods than the seller had, unless the owner of the goods is by his conduct precluded from denying the seller's authority to sell.

(2) Provided also that nothing in this Ordinance shall affect-

(a) The provisions of any Acts or Ordinances relating to Factors which may from time to time be in force in this Colony, or any enactment enabling the apparent owner of goods to dispose of them as if he were the true owner thereof;

(b) The validity of any contract of sale under any speci common law or statutory power of sale or under the order of a court of competent jurisdiction.

22. (1) Where goods are sold in market overt, according to the usage of the market, the buyer acquires a good title to the goods, provided he buys them in good faith and without notice of any defect or want of title on the part of the seller.

(2) Nothing in this section shall affect the law relating to the sale of horses.

23. When the seller of goods has a voidable title thereto, but his title has not been avoided at the time of the sale, the buyer acquires a good title to the goods, provided he buys them in good faith and without notice of the seller's defect of title.

24. (1) Where goods have been stolen and the offender is prosecuted to conviction, the property in the goods so stolen revests in the person who was the owner of the goods, or his personal representative, notwithstanding any intermediate dealing with them, whether by sale in market overt or otherwise.

(2) Notwithstanding any enactment to the contrary, where goods have been obtained by fraud or other wrong- ful means not amounting to larceny, the property in such goods shall not revest in the person who was the owner of the goods, or his personal representative, by reason only of the conviction of the offender.

25. (1) Where a person having sold goods continues or is in possession of the goods, or of the documents of title to the goods, the delivery or transfer by that person, or by a mercantile agent acting for him, of the goods or documents of title under any sale, pledge, or other dispo- sition thereof, to any person receiving the same in good faith and without notice of the previous sale, shall have the same effect as if the person making the delivery or transfer were expressly authorised by the owner of the goods to make the same.

(2) Where a person having bought or agreed to buy goods obtains, with the consent of the seller, possession of the goods or the documents of title to the goods, the deli- very or transfer by that person, or by a mercantile agent acting for him, of the goods or documents of title, under any sale, pledge, or other disposition thereof, to any person receiving the same in good faith and without notice of any lien or other right of the original seller in respect of the goods, shall have the same effect as if the person making the delivery or transfer were a mercantile agent in possession of the goods or documents of title with the consent of the owner.

Provided that no such writ shall prejudice the title to such goods acquired by any person in good faith and for valuable consideration, unless such person had at the time when he acquired his title notice that such writ or any other writ by virtue of which the goods of the execution debtor might be seized or attached had been delivered to and remained unexecuted in the hands of the bailiff.

(2) In this section the term "bailiff" includes any officer charged with the enforcement of a writ of execution

PART III.

PERFORMANCE OF THE CONTRACT.

27. It is the duty of the seller to deliver the goods, and of the buyer to accept and pay for them, in accordance with the terms of the contract of sale.

28. Unless otherwise agreed, delivery of the goods and payment of the price are concurrent conditions, that is to say, the seller must be ready and willing to give possession of the goods to the buyer in exchange for the price, and the buyer must be ready and willing to pay the price in exchange for possession of the goods.

29. (1) Whether it is for the buyer to take possession of the goods or for the seller to send them to the buyer is a question depending in each case on the contract, express or implied, between the parties. Apart from any such contract, express or implied, the place of delivery is the seller's place of business, if he have one, and if not, his residence Provided that, if the contract be for the sale of specific goods, which to the knowledge of the parties when the contract is made are in some other place, then that place is the place of delivery.

(2) Where under the contract of sale the seller is bound to send the goods to the buyer, but no time for sending them is fixed, the seller is bound to send them within a reasonable time.

(3) Where the goods at the time of sale are in the pos- session of a third person, there is no delivery by seller to buyer unless and until such third person acknowledges to the buyer that he holds the goods on his behalf; provided that nothing in this section shall affect the operation of the issue or transfer of any document of title to goods.

(4) Demand or tender of delivery may be treated as ineffectual unless made at a reasonable hour. What is a reasonable hour is a question of fact.

(5) Unless otherwise agreed, the expenses of and inciden- tal to putting the goods into a deliverable state must be borne by the seller.

30. (1) Where the seller delivers to the buyer a quan- tity of goods less than he contracted to sell, the buyer may reject them, but if the buyer accepts the goods so delivered he must pay for them at the contract rate.

(2) Where the seller delivers to the buyer a quantity of goods larger than he contracted to sell, the buyer may accept the goods included in the contract and reject the rest, or he may reject the whole. If the buyer accepts the whole of the goods so delivered he must pay for them at the contract rate.

(3) Where the seller delivers to the buyer the goods he contracted to sell mixed with goods of a different description not included in the contract, the buyer may accept the goods which are in accordance with the contract and reject the rest, or he may reject the whole.

(4) The provisions of this section are subject to any usage of trade, special agreement, or course of dealing between the parties.

31. (1) Unless otherwise agreed, the buyer of goods is not bound to accept delivery thereof by instalments.

(2) Where there is a contract for the sale of goods to be delivered by stated instalments, which are to be separately paid for, and the seller makes defective deliveries in respect of one or more instalments, or the buyer neglects or refuses to take delivery of or pay for one or more instalments, it is a question in each case depending on the

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

terms of the contract and the circumstances of the case, whether the breach of contract is a repudiation of the whole contract or whether it is a severable breach giving rise to a claim for compensation but not to a right to treat the whole contract as repudiated.

32. (1) Where, in pursuance of a contract of sale, the seller is authorised or required to send the goods to the buyer, delivery of the goods to a carrier, whether named. by the buyer or not, for the purpose of transmission to the buyer is prima facie deemed to be a delivery of the goods to the buyer.

(2) Unless otherwise authorised by the buyer, the seller must make such contract with the carrier on behalf of the buyer as may be reasonable having regard to the nature of the goods and the other circumstances of the case. If the seller omit so to do, and the goods are lost or damaged in course of transit, the buyer may decline to treat the delivery to the carrier as a delivery to himself, or may hold the seller responsible in damages.

(3) Unless otherwise agreed, where goods are sent by the seller to the buyer by a route involving sea transit, under circumstances in which it is usual to insure, the seller must give such notice to the buyer as may enable him to insure them during their sea transit, and, if the seller fails to do so, the goods shall be deemed to be at his risk during such sea transit.

33. Where the seller of goods agrees to deliver them at his own risk at a place other than that where they are when sold, the buyer must, nevertheless, unless otherwise agreed, take any risk of deterioration in the goods neces- sarily incident to the course of transit.

34. (1) Where goods are delivered to the buyer, which he has not previously examined, he is not deemed to have accepted them unless and until he has had a reasonable opportunity of examining them for the purpose of ascertain- ing whether they are in conformity with the contract.

(2) Unless otherwise agreed, when the seller tenders. delivery of goods to the buyer, he is bound, on request, to afford the buyer a reasonable opportunity of examining the goods for the purpose of ascertaining whether they are in conformity with the contract.

35. The buyer is deemed to have accepted the goods. when he intimates to the seller that he has accepted them, or when the goods have been delivered to him, and he does any act in relation to them which is inconsistent with the ownership of the seller, or when, after the lapse of a reason- able time, he retains the goods without intimating to the seller that he has rejected them.

36. Unless otherwise agreed, where goods are delivered. to the buyer, and he refuses to accept them, having the right so to do, he is not bound to return them to the seller, but it is sufficient if he intimates to the seller that he refuses to accept them.

37. When the seller is ready and willing to deliver the goods and requests the buyer to take delivery, and the buyer does not within a reasonable time after such request take delivery of the goods, he is liable to the seller for any loss occasioned by his neglect or refusal to take delivery, and also for a reasonable charge for the care and custody of the goods. Provided that nothing in this section shall affect the rights of the seller where the neglect or refusal of the buyer to take delivery amounts to a repudiation of the contract.

Unpaid Seller's Lien.

40. (1) Subject to the provisions of this Ordinance, the unpaid seller of goods who is in possession of them is entitled to retain possession of them until payment or tender of the price in the following cases, namely:-

(a) Where the goods have been sold without any

stipulation as to credit;

(b) Where the goods have been sold on credit, but

the term of credit has expired;

(c) Where the buyer becomes insolvent.

(2) The seller may exercise his right of lien notwith- standing that he is in possession of the goods as agent or bailee for the buyer.

41. Where an unpaid seller has made part delivery of the goods, he may exercise his right of lien or retention on the remainder, unless such part delivery has been made under such circumstances as to show an agreement to waive the lien or right of retention.

42. (1) The unpaid seller of goods loses his lien or right of retention thereon-

(a) When he delivers the goods to a carrier or other bailee for the purpose of transmission to the buyer without reserving the right of disposal of the goods;

(b) When the buyer or his agent lawfully obtains

possession of the goods;

(c) By waiver thereof.

(2) The unpaid seller of goods, having a lien or right of retention thereon, does not lose his lien or right of reten- tion by reason only that he has obtained judgment or decree for the price of the goods.

Stoppage in transitu.

43. Subject to the provisions of this Ordinance, when the buyer of goods becomes insolvent, the unpaid seller who has parted with the possession of the goods has the right of stopping them in transitu, that is to say, he may resume possession of the goods as long as they are in course of transit, and may retain them until payment or tender of the price.

44. (1) Goods are deemed to be in course of transit from the time when they are delivered to a carrier by land or water, or other bailee for the purpose of transmission to the buyer, until the buyer, or his agent in that behalf, takes delivery of them from such carrier or other bailee.

(2) If the buyer or his agent in that behalf obtains deliv- ery of the goods before their arrival at the appointed destination, the transit is at an end.

(3) If, after the arrival of the goods at the appointed destination, the carrier or other bailee acknowledges to the buyer, or his agent, that he holds the goods on his behalf and continues in possession of them as bailee for the buyer, or his agent, the transit is at an end, and it is immaterial that a further destination for the goods may have been indicated by the buyer.

(4) If the goods are rejected by the buyer, and the carrier or other bailee continues in possession of them, the transit is not deemed to be at an end, even if the seller has refused to receive them back.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

(5) When goods are delivered to a ship chartered by the buyer it is a question depending on the circumstances of the particular case, whether they are in the possession of the master as a carrier, or as agent to the buyer.

(6) Where the carrier or other bailee wrongfully refuses to deliver the goods to the buyer, or his agent in that behalf, the transit is deemed to be at an end.

(7) Where part delivery of the goods has been made to the buyer, or his agent in that behalf, the remainder of the goods may be stopped in transitu, unless such part delivery has been made under such circumstances as to show an agreement to give up possession of the whole of the goods.

45. (1) The unpaid seller may exercise his right of stoppage in transitu either by taking actual possession of the goods, or by giving notice of his claim to the carrier or other bailee in whose possession the goods are. Such notice may be given either to the person in actual possession of the goods or to his principal. In the latter case the notice, to be effectual, must be given at such time and under such circumstances that the principal, by the exercise of reasonable diligence, may communicate it to his servant or agent in time to prevent a delivery to the buyer.

(2) When notice of stoppage in transitu is given by the seller to the carrier, or other bailee in possession of the goods, he must re-deliver the goods to, or according to the directions of, the seller. The expenses of such re-delivery must be borne by the seller.

Re-sale by Buyer or Seller.

46. Subject to the provisions of this Ordinance the unpaid seller's right of lien or retention or stoppage in transitu is not affected by any sale, or other disposition of the goods which the buyer may have made, unless the seller has assented thereto.

Provided that where a document of title to goods has been lawfully transferred to any person as buyer or owner of the goods, and that person transfers the document to a person who takes the document in good faith and for valuable consideration, then, if such last-mentioned transfer was by way of sale the unpaid seller's right of lien or retention or stoppage in transitu is defeated, and if such last-mentioned transfer was by way of pledge or other disposition for value, the unpaid seller's right of lien or retention or stoppage in transitu can only be exercised subject to the rights of the transferee.

47. (1) Subject to the provisions of this section, a contract of sale is not rescinded by the mere exercise by an unpaid seller of his right of lien or retention or stoppage in transitu.

(2) Where an unpaid seller who has exercised his right of lien or retention or stoppage in transitu re-sells the goods, the buyer acquires a good title thereto as against the original buyer.

(3) Where the goods are of a perishable nature, or where the unpaid seller gives notice to the buyer of his intention to re-sell, and the buyer does not within a reasonable time pay or tender the price, the unpaid seller may re-sell the goods and recover from the original buyer damages for any loss occasioned by his breach of contract.

(4) Where the seller expressly reserves a right of re-sale in case the buyer should make default, and, on the buyer making default, re-sells the goods, the original contract of sale is thereby rescinded, but without prejudice to any claim the seller may have for damages.

ACTIONS FOR BREACH OF THE CONTRACT. Remedies of the Seller.

48. (1) Where, under a contract of sale, the property in the goods has passed to the buyer, and the buyer wrongfully neglects or refuses to pay for the goods according to the terms of the contract, the seller may maintain an action against him for the price of the goods.

(2) Where, under a contract of sale, the price is payable on a day certain irrespective of delivery, and the buyer wrongfully neglects or refuses to pay such price, the seller may maintain an action for the price, although the property in the goods has not passed, and the goods have not been appropriated to the contract.

Interest and special damages.

Exclusion of implied terms and conditions.

Reasonable time a question of fact.

Rights, &o., enforceable by action.

49. (1) Where the buyer wrongfully neglects or refuses. to accept and pay for the goods, the seller may maintain an action against him for damages for non-acceptance.

(2) The measure of damages is the estimated loss directly and naturally resulting, in the ordinary course of events, from the buyer's breach of contract.

(3) Where there is an available market for the goods in question the measure of damages is prima facie to be ascertained by the difference between the contract price and the market or current price at the time or times when the goods ought to have been accepted, or, if no time was fixed for acceptance, then at the time of the refusal to accept.

Remedies of the Buyer.

50. (1) Where the seller wrongfully neglects or refuses to deliver the goods to the buyer, the buyer may maintain an action against the seller for damages for non-delivery.

(2) The measure of damages is the estimated loss directly and naturally resulting, in the ordinary course of events, from the seller's breach of contract.

(3) Where there is an available market for the goods in question the measure of damages is prima facie to be ascertained by the difference between the contract price. nd the market or current price of the goods at the time or times when they ought to have been delivered, or, if no time was fixed, then at the time of the refusal to deliver.

51. In any action for breach of contract to deliver specific or ascertained goods the court may, if it thinks fit, on the application of the plaintiff, by its judgment or decree direct that the contract shall be performed specifically, without giving the defendant the option of retaining the goods on payment of damages. The judgment or decree may be unconditional, or upon such terms and conditions as to damages, payment of the price, and otherwise, as to the court may seem just, and the application by the plaintiff may be made at any time before judgment or decree.

52. (1) Where there is a breach of warranty by the seller, or where the buyer elects, or is compelled, to treat any breach of a condition on the part of the seller as a breach of warranty, the buyer is not by reason only of such breach of warranty entitled to reject the goods; but he may (a) set up against the seller the breach of warranty

in diminution or extinction of the price; or (b) maintain an action against the seller for damages

for the breach of warranty.

(2) The measure of damages for breach of warranty is the estimated loss directly and naturally resulting, in the ordinary course of events, from the breach of warranty.

(3) In the case of breach of warranty of quality such loss is prima facie the difference between the value of the goods at the time of delivery to the buyer and the value they would have had if they had answered to the warranty.

(4) The fact that the buyer has set up the breach of warranty in diminution or extinction of the price does not prevent him from maintaining an action for the same breach of warranty if he has suffered further damage.

53. Nothing in this Ordinance shall affect the right of the buyer or the seller to recover interest or special damages in any case where by law interest or special damages may be recoverable, or to recover money paid where the consi- deration for the payment of it has failed.

PART VI.

SUPPLEMENTARY.

54. Where any right, duty, or liability would arise under a contract of sale by implication of law, it may be negatived or varied by express agreement or by the course of dealing between the parties, or by usage, if the usage be such as to bind both parties to the contract.

55. Where, by this Ordinance, any reference is made to a reasonable time the question what is a reasonable time is a question of fact.

56. Where any right, duty, or liability is declared by this Ordinance it may, unless otherwise by this Ordinance provided, be enforced by action.

‧.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

57. In the case of a sale by auction-

(1) Where goods are put up for sale by auction in lots, each lot is prima facie deemed to be the subject of a separate contract of sale:

(2) A sale by auction is complete when the auctioneer announces its completion by the fall of the hammer, or in other customary manner. Until such announcement is made any bidder may retract his bid:

(3) Where a sale by auction is not notified to be subject to a right to bid on behalf of the seller, it shall not be lawful for the seller to bid himself or to employ any person to bid at such sale, or for the auctioneer knowingly to take any bid from the seller or any such person: Any sale contravening this rule may be treated as frau- dulent by the buyer:

(4) A sale by auction may be notified to be subject to a reserved or upset price, and a right to bid may also be reserved expressly by or on behalf of the seller.

Where a right to bid is expressly reserved, but not otherwise, the seller, or any one person on his behalf, may bid at the auction.

(2) The rules of the common law, including the law merchant, save in so far as they are inconsistent with the express provisions of this Ordinance, and in particular the rules relating to the law of principal and agent and the effect of fraud, misrepresentation, duress or coercion, mis- take, or other invalidating cause, shall continue to apply to contracts for the sale of goods.

(3) Nothing in this Ordinance or in any repeal effected thereby shall affect the enactments relating to bills of sale, or any enactment relating to the sale of goods which is not expressly repealed by this Ordinance.

Reasons and Objects.

The object of this Ordinance is to bring into force in this Colony the recent admirable Codification of the Law relating to the Sale of Goods which is embodied in the Sale of Goods Act, 1893. Only such verbal alterations have been made as are required to adapt the Imperial Act to existing law in this Colony. It is desirable that the law of Hongkong on this important subject should be the same as that of England, and yet, while the law in England as to the Sale of Goods is now to be found set forth in one clear Statute, it is necessary in Hongkong to consult Imperial Statutes, local Ordinances and a considerable number of text-books and judicial decisions to ascertain, in many instances, what that law really is. Such a state of things should obviously be remedied by adopting the Codification.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15?? FEBRUARY, 1896.

A BILL

ENTITLED)

An Ordinance to amend the practice as to the

WHE

vacating of the registration of a Lis pendens.

HEREAS a registered Lis pendens cannot be vacated without the consent of the person by whom it was registered, and such consent is sometimes withheld although the suit or proceeding is at an end or is not being bona fide prosecuted Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

J

1. The Supreme Court or any Judge thereof, before whom the property sought to be bound is in litigation, may upon the determination of the Lis pendens, or during the pendency thereof, where the said Court or Judge shall be satisfied that the litigation is not prosecuted bona fide, or for other good cause shown, make an order, if such Court or Judge shall see fit, for the vacating of the registration in the Land Office of such Lis pendens without the consent of the party who registered it, and may, in the discretion of the said Court or Judge, direct the party on whose behalf the registration was made to pay all the costs and expenses occasioned by the registration or the vacating thereof, including the costs of the application to vacate, or may make such other order as to such costs or any of them as to such Court or Judge may seem just.

2. The application to vacate a Lis pendens under the foregoing section may be in a summary way by petition or motion in Court or by summous at Chambers, and may be made by any person interested in the property against which the Lis pendens has been registered, whether such person is a party to the Lis pendens or not.

3. If an order shall be made for vacating any such registration, the Land Officer shall, upon the filing with him of a memorial and an office copy of such order, cuter a discharge of such Lis pendens on the Land Office register, and may issue certificates of such Entry, and shall demand for every such Entry the sum of Two Dollars, and shall demand for every such certificate the sum of One Dollar. Such fees shall be paid by the Land Officer into the Colonial Treasury.

Reasons and Objects.

Ordinance No. 10 of 1856 provides for the registration in the Land Office of lites pendentes which, as enacted by that Ordinance, shall have the same force and effect as a Judgment registered in conformity with Ordinance No. 3 of 1844. Since the passing of the first mentioned Ordinance it has been the practice in this Colony to register, on behalf of Plaintiffs in suits affecting lands, a Lis pendens against the property affected. There is, however, no provision in Ordinance No. 10 of 1856 for the vacating of the registration of a Lis pendens and the only means therefore by which, as the law now stands, a Defendant can in

any way clear his title to property against which a Lis pendens has been registered, is by registering a Decree in his favour in the suit.

Should the Defendant die before the determination of the suit and the Plaintiff not proceed, or should the Defendant not be beneficially interested, or not be solely interested, in the property against which a Lis pendens has been registered no other person, interested in such property but not being a party to the suit, can bring it to a conclusion, and such person, therefore, has no possible means of clearing the register in the Land Office from the blot upon the title to the property caused by the registration of the Lis pondeus, save with the consent of the Plaintiff at whose mercy he is placed.

Until nearly thirty years ago the same difficulty was experienced in England by persons interested in property there against which a Lis pendens had been registered, and it was found expedient to pass an Act (30 and 31 Victoria c. 47) to remedy the difficulty. This Bill is drafted upon the same lines as that Act and will have the effect of bringing the law of Hongkong into line with that prevailing in England.

A BILL

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to provide for the extradition of Fugitive Criminals from the Territory of the British North Borneo Company.

WHEREAS persons who have committed certain

crimes or offences within the Territory of the British North Borneo Company may escape to this Colony and it is expedient to provide for the apprehension of such fugitive criminals from Justice and for their surrender to the Government of British North Borneo in order that they may be dealt with according to law: Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. This Ordinance may be cited as The North Borneo Extradition Ordinance, 1896.

2. In the interpretation of this Ordinance and the schedules thereto the following expressions shall, unless repugnant to or inconsistent with the context, have the meaning hereine after assigned to them, viz. :--

"Governor of North Borneo" means the Governor of the Territory of the British North Borneo Com- pany and includes the person for the time being administering the Government of such Territory. "North Borneo" means the Territory of the British

North Borneo Company.

"Extradition Crime" means any crime or offence which if committed in the Colony would be one of the crimes or offences mentioned in the first schedule hereto.

66

Fugitive Criminal" means any person accused or convicted of an extradition crime committed with- in the jurisdiction of North Borneo who is or is suspected of being in the Colony of Hongkong.

The extradition crimes mentioned in the first schedule to this Ordinance shall be construed according to the law in force in the Colony at the date of the alleged extradition crime.

Provided always that the Governor of Hongkong in Council may from time to time by order to be published in the Gazette declare that any crime or offence specified in such order and not included in the first schedule hereto shall form part thereof, and from and after the date of the publication of such order the crime or offence specified therein shall come within the operation of this Ordinance as if the same had been originally included in the said schedule, and further that the Governor of Hongkong in Council may at any time by order to be published in the Gazette declare that any crime or offence specified in the first schedule hereto or which may hereafter be added to the said schedule as hereinbefore provided shall no longer form part thereof and from and after the date of the publi- cation of such order such crime or offence shall cease to come within the operation of this Ordinance.

3. The following restrictions shall be observed with respect to the surrender of fugitive criminals :---

(1) A fugitive criminal shall not be surrendered if the crime or offence in respect of which his surrender is demanded is one of a political character or if he prove to the satisfaction of the Magistrate, or of a judge of the Supreme Court, if brought before the Court on a writ of Habeas Corpus, or of the Governor that the requisition for his surrender has in fact been made with a view to try or punish him for a crime or offence of a political character or for a crime or offence which is not an extradition crime.

(ii) A fagitive criminal, who has been acensed of a crime or offence in Hongkong not being the extradition crime for which his surrender is demanded, or who is undergoing sentence under any conviction in the Colony, shall not be sur- rendered until after he has been dischargel whether by acquittal or on expiration of his sentence or otherwise.

2

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

4. Every fugitive criminal shall be liable to be appre- hended and surrendered in manner provided by this Ordi- nance, whether the extradition crime in respect of which the surrender is demanded was committed before or after the passing of this Ordinance, and whether there is or is not any concurrent jurisdiction in any Court in the Colony over that crime.

5. Whenever the requisition for the surrender of a fugitive criminal is made to the Governor of Hongkong by the Governor of North Borneo the Governor of Hongkong may, by order under his hand and seal, signify to a Magis- trate that such requisition has been made, and require him to issue his warrant for the apprehension of the fugitive criminal.

6. A Magistrate, on receipt of the said order, shall issue his warrant for the apprehension of the fugitive criminal, or, if the fugitive criminal be already in custody shall issue his order to all necessary persons to bring the fugitive criminal before him to be dealt with according to this Ordinance.

7. A Magistrate may also issue his warrant for the apprehension of a fugitive criminal on such information or complaint as would, in his opinion, justify the issue of a warrant if the alleged extradition crime had been committed in the Colony.

A fugitive criminal apprehended on a warrant so issued shall be discharged by the Magistrate, unless the Magistrate within such time as, with reference to the circumstances of the case, he shall think reasonable, receives from the Governor an order signifying that a requisition has been made for the surrender of such fugitive criminal.

8. When a fugitive criminal is brought before a Magis- trate, he shall hear the case in the same manner, and have the same jurisdiction and powers, as nearly as may be, as if the prisoner were brought before him charged with an indictable offence committed in the Colony.

Provided always that--

(i) Copies of depositions signed or taken before any Judge or other competent Magistrate having authority in North Borneo to take cognizance of the crime charged, and authenticated in man- ner hereinafter provided may be received in evidence of the criminality of such fugitive criminal.

may

(ii) In the case of a person convicted in North Borneo of an extradition crime, a copy of the conviction, authenticated in manner hereinafter provided, be received in evidence and shall, where the Magistrate is satisfied that such person is according to the law of North Borneo unlawfully at large, justify such Magistrate in committing such person to Victoria Gaol to await the further order of the Governor without re-open- ing the case.

(iii) In every case proof of the identity of the fugitive criminal must be given to the satisfaction of the Magistrate.

(iv) Warrants of arrest and copies of depositions, signed or taken before any such Judge or other com- petent Magistrate as aforesaid, and copies of convictions shall be received in evidence, if the warrant of arrest purports to be signed by such Judge or Magistrate and if the copies of depo- sitions purport to be certified under the hand of such Judge or Magistrate, to be true copies of the original depositions, and if the copy of the conviction purport to be certified under the hand and official seal of the Governor of North Borneo to be a true copy of the original con- viction. The signature of every such Judge or Magistrate and his authority to take cogni- zance of the crime or offence charged shall be sufficiently proved if the document purport to be sealed with the official seal of the Governor of North Borneo, and all Courts of Justice in this Colony shall, for the purpose of this Ordi- nance, take judicial notice of such spal, aud shall admit the documents so authenticated by it to be received in evidence without further proof.

SIR, Herewith I have the honour to forward the annual return of fires and fire alarms for the year 1895.

During six months of the year the supply of fresh water was cut off, being turned on only on an alarm of fire and its use dispensed with as soon as salt water was obtained.

The amount of coal used by the Brigade during 1895 was 29 tons as against 131 in 1894.

The floating fire engine used 19 tons flushing drains in April, working at fires, (on one occasion for two days at a fire on board the Wandering Jew, American ship) going and coming from shelter at Causeway Bay during typhoon season, and keeping up steam day and night whilst the water was

cut off.

There were 35 fires in 1895 as against 29 in 1894:-

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 49.

  The following Reports of the Head Master of Queen's College and of the Examiners appointed by the Governing Body for 1895, which were laid before the Legislative Council on the 11th instant, are published.

No. 7.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 14th February, 1896.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Colonial Secretary.

QUEEN'S COLLEGE, HONGKONG, 28th January, 1896.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward the Annual Report on Queen's College for the year 1895.

1. The total number on the Roll for the year was 1,024. As the attendance in January was 577, the admissions reached the high figure 447; of these, 350 were new boys, there therefore remain 97 names of boys who returned from the 1894 Roll. In the last four months, no fewer than 89 new boys were admitted, nearly double the usual number, for the same period. After allowance has been made for the four days during which, with His Excellency the Governor's approval, the college was closed for the Oxford Local Examinations, the number of school days, 233, is normal.

2. In the past year, over 100 boys, on leaving this college, obtained situations; 3 in the local Civil Service, 43 in local Mercantile and Professional offices, 38 in the Chinese Service, and 33 at the Coast Ports and abroad generally.

3. $12,667 fees were collected in the course of the year. This is not only the largest amount thus paid into the Treasury as yet, but is so in spite of the facts, that the monthly averages in the first half of the year were nearly 100 attendances less than in 1894, and that a loss of $162 was incurred by the departure in October of 35 boys for Tientsin. Expenditure is apparently larger than last year, but this is due to the appearance in 1895 accounts of Arrears of Exchange Compensation, chargeable against 1894.

4. Three years ago (Gazette 1893, p. 165, par. 3) I pointed out that the normal conditions of the Central School were not ideal and that the continuance of these in a building with twice the attendances increases the difficulty fourfold; for it is evident that the consequences, attendant upon the annual change of one third of the total number of boys, grow more serious in a ratio which rapidly increases out of proportion to the mere access of numbers. If ordinary principles of promotion were under these circumstances adhered to, the natural result would be an annual reduction of the attend- ance in the Upper School, and a corresponding expansion of the Lower sections of the College including the Preparatory School. The fees in the Upper School being highest, there would be entailed a serious reduction in the revenue. Further the number of boys leaving annually would be doubtless augmented, as the present method of rapid promotion is welcome to them, at their age, as curtailing the length of their school career. As a typical instance I may cite the component parts of Class IV. C. where, in November last, 7 boys had in 1894 been in Class V, 11 in Class VI, 11 in Class VII and I in Class VIII; several of them having been promoted through intermediate classes in the previous half of 1895. No ideal education can thrive under such circumstances. What is to be noted is, that the system combines and harmonises the demand for fees, and the eagerness of boys to complete their education with the utmost speed. Any estimate of the value of the education given at this college, that ignores the above conditions, and makes no allowance for the fact that, in four or five years, the majority of our boys pass through eight standards, must arrive at erroneous conclusions.

5. A cry is heard from Wales, that it is impossible for boys, attending day-schools, who hear and speak nothing but Welsh out of school-hours, to attain to anything like ease and accuracy in speaking and writing the English language. As I do not think that sufficient allowance is generally made for the difficulties attendant upon the study of English by boys of Mongolian race, I was glad to find in Things Japanese," in the article on Education by Professor MASON, the expression of the same argument I have often employed, which is to the following effect. If in England the examination in

"

118

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896. English History, Grammar, Geography, Mathematics, &c. were entirely conducted, questions and answers, oral and written, in the Latin language, only a slight idea could be formed of the difficult y experienced by Japanese and Chinese in examinations conducted in English; for after all, there is a certain amount of kinship between English and Latin in thought, roots, construction and expression, absolutely wanting between English and Japanese or Chinese. I also found from conversation with Professor MASON, at a health resort in Japan last summer, that the attainments of our boys after four or five years, compare very favourably with those of Japanese after a nine years' course; great proficiency in English Conversation, Grammar, Composition, &c. is the exception not the rule, being dependent on the natural abilities of the boys, not on the system of education.

6. The Second Master, Mr. MAY, returned from leave in April, and Mr. BARLOW in August Mr. JONES went on leave in July. The office of Seventh Assistant Master was abolished, the Governing Body recommending a graduated scale of higher salaries for the Chinese Staff. Of the four Chinese Assistants, who, as mentioned in my last Report, taught classes in the Upper School in 1894 with such excellent results, two have left for higher salary; Mr. WAN going to a new university recently opened at Tientsin, and Mr. LEUNG obtaining transfer to the Public Works Department. The great bulk of our Chinese Staff now consists of junior men, and it is to be recorded to their great credit, that they have uniformly strenuously striven to sustain the standards of the classes entrusted to their charge.

7. The results of the Oxford Local Examinations are this year very disappointing, being far behind the most satisfactory ones of the two preceding years. It is not, however, possible to maintain an even standard of excellence for any length of time, especially in view of the difficulties resulting from irregular attendance, detailed above. There are, however, two redeeming features, which deserve to be noted. Out of the eight boys from this college, who received certificates, two obtained distinction. U HANG-KAM, already A. A. in 1894, aspired to distinction in Mathematics, and was successful, ranking 12 out of 23 Seniors, so honoured in all England. C. ELLIS was similarly 3 out of 12 in the list, distinguished in History in the Preliminary Examination.

8. It is much to be wished, that some plan could be devised for reducing the distracting noises, by which our work is continually interrupted. I refer especially to the nuisance arising from processions, which, I believe, are required to hush their music in the neighbourhood of the Supreme Court and other Public Buildings, but which seem to reserve their energies for our benefit. Just recently a new cause of annoyance has arisen, the dressing of rough hewn stones in Staunton Street. I have often suggested the blocking-up of the loop-holes in the boundary wall of the same street, as these apertures reveal an irresistible vista for cock-shy to the gamins of that district; during the examination, a small urchin threw quite a big stone into the Hall. A more serious subject for complaint is the immoral reputation of the immediate neighbourhood of this college; it being a matter of common knowledge that brothels and secret gambling dens abound, which prove a source of ruin to several of our scholars.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

Report on the Annual Examination held at Queen's College from January 3rd to 16th, 1896.

QUEEN'S COLLEGE, HONGKONG, 31st January, 1896.

GENTLEMEN,-We have the honour of reporting to you the result of the Annual Examination held by us at Queen's College during the current month.

In accordance with instructions received from you we have examined, either by written work or orally, "all the subjects taught in the College including the Chinese school," with the exception of Shorthand which we understand is at an elementary stage--it being undesirable that boys commen- cing this subject should be subjected to any test in it until they have arrived at a certain standard of efficiency.

The examination occupied 11 days (January 3rd to 16th), exclusive of one day given to the Chinese school; and on 8 of these days the work was carried on in the afternoon as well as in the morning.

Papers were set in all the subjects offered except Reading, Conversation, and the Pupil Teachers' Practical Work, which were taken orally. Great care was taken to preserve, as far as possible, the standard hitherto adopted in the Annual Examinations, the questions being carefully chosen to test the knowledge which had been imparted to the boys in those portions of their subjects which they had been taught. Only in three instances was it pointed out by the Head Master that we had exceeded this limit, and then due allowance was made in the awarding of marks. The papers were generally slightly longer than usual, in order to give as much scope as possible; and it is hoped that the tabulated results on the mark sheets may afford some means of comparison between the work in this examina- tion and that of last year. We have, however, in order to avoid too severe a test, taken 40 per cent, instead of 50 per cent. for the minimum of marks necessary to obtain a "pass." It was thus possible for any boy, doing a little well, to pass.

In reporting upon the work of 566 boys it is impossible, without being inconveniently lengthy to give more than a general view of the examiners' opinion of the work done. To do this would necessitate a detailed report upon each class, or set of parallel divisions, and as this cannot be done we would draw attention to the mark sheets, which have been prepared to show not only the order of merit in each division, but also the percentage of marks obtained in each subject by each boy, and the percentage of

    passes in each subject in each division, as well as the actual number of passes and failures awarded to each boy.

With regard to the actual work, as might be expected in a school of this kind and size where some boys have been so long and some so short a time under tuition, the work showed great uneven- ness. But what is less easily accountable is the fact that the boys in one class, not excepting the First, showed great disparity of knowledge or of power to reproduce it. There were a good many cases of conspicuous success, but there was also a lamentable amount of weak and inaccurate work. subjects were Writing, Algebra and Book-keeping, and the worst Conversation, Composition, Latin, Euclid.

The best

Marks were assigned for Writing throughout the school, and this was very creditable and satis- factory.

In Reading and Conversation the examiners took all the boys, 5 or 6 at a time, in a separate room and devoted from 15 to 25 minutes to each group. Every boy read before the examiners at least twice, many three times; and conversations were engaged in between the examiners and the boys, or between the boys themselves in the presence of the examiners. The reading and conversa- tion in the First and Second Classes were very satisfactory, showing that the test applied was not too severe, and also that boys could be taught to read clearly and intelligently, and learn to converse with a fair command idiom. But the majority of this work in the rest of the school leaves room for much impvement. We do not think it a good plan that reading should be taught by Chinese Masters, and we are of cpinion that more time should be given to the cultivation of the habit of

121

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896. composing and speaking simple sentences idiomatically. At the Head Masters' Conference in England held last month, it was resolved that-"It is desirable that modern languages be taught more collo- quially than is customary in schools at present," and we think that much of the deficiency in speaking English which we noticed in the greater part of the school might be supplied if some time were given to the teaching of colloquial English. We do not see from the table of hours of work supplied to us that any time is given especially to this subject; the 24 hours a week put down for conversation appears to mean no more than that the boys are taught various subjects in English, by European or Chinese Masters, during that number of hours. We feel sure from our experience that no definite improvement can be effected in this matter unless especial attention is paid to it.

    In the lower classes, where the number of pages of the reading book prepared was small, the boys had read the same piece so frequently that, on five out of six occasions when the examiners asked a boy to close his book and repeat four or five lines which he had just read, they were repeated verbatim with as much fluency as when the book was open before him. The consequence of this frequent reading of the same passage is that boys get into the habit of not looking carefully at the whole of a word, and when, in an unfamiliar passage, the eye catches sight of a word slightly similar to one better known, the boy pronounces the latter and seems totally unconscious that he is making nonsense of the sentence. We noticed a very common inistake, which ought to be remedied at once; nouns in the singular were read as plural and vice versa, tenses in the present as past and vice versa. The same mistakes occur in the written work of all the Classes.

The Dictation was taken in each Class, except in Class I., from the part of the reading book which the boys had prepared, in order that there should be no unfamiliar words in the piece chosen. And care was taken that the unfamiliar voices of the examiners should not in any way make the A boy was allowed to make six mistakes and yet to pass (errors in punc- passage unduly difficult. tuation counting, and in spelling 1). In spite of this-and the portion on which marks were assigned was no longer than in previous years-there were too many failures; we think that a good many of these might have been avoided by more care on the part of the boys, and if English Masters only had been allowed to teach reading. Punctuation was very weak especially in the Middle Classes. The writing was good, and it was pleasing to find several perfect papers in Classes IV., VII. and VIII.

Composition.-As in previous examinations the boys in Class I. were asked to write an essay. Three subjects were given (The Sports and Pastimes to be seen in Hongkong, The Peak Tramway, We and The Benefits of Foreign Trade), and boys were invited to select one and write upon it. were much pleased with the work in I.A.; two or three essays being excellent, and the mistakes in composition very few. In the other classes, II. to V., a short story was read out twice by an English Master, and an explanation of it given in Chinese by a native Teacher. The boys were then instructed to reproduce the story in their own words. A few boys acquitted themselves creditably, but the mass of the work was very poor. We do not feel sure that this is the best method of teaching Composition, as boys seem to try too much to reproduce the exact words they have heard; and they Much attention is needed to this subject. We think it make this effort at the expense of the sense. would be better to teach the boys to compose and write correctly short sentences relating to some simple subject chosen by a Master; afterwards to write longer ones and to combine them. Many papers were quite unintelligible.

Grammar.-We were satisfied with the work of I.A. and I. C,A., and also of II.A., where there was evidence of good teaching, and we found the analysis of sentences on the whole good. Much of the work of the other Classes was ruined by inaccuracy and by an inability to express correctly what Too much dependence is put upon rote-work. It may be necessary for had been learnt by heart.

a teacher to know that "an adjective is a word that may be joined to a noun to describe, to delimit, or to point to, that which we are naming by the noun," but it is not good to burden the memory of Chinese boys with such things unless it is desired to "sacrifice Education to Examination." Many boys had been taught to reproduce this definition, but the majority of them, in this and other cases, And when a boy in the Third Class, made nonsense of what they had tried to commit to memory. who has been in the school three years, writes such rubbish as "The common noun distinguishes as proper nouns the things, persons or places are given the name to it that is used for proper," it is time to consider whether the whole method of teaching Grammar from a text-book does not require revision. This is only a sample of the many unintelligible answers with which the majority of papers teemed. Such a provincialism (appearing in about 75 per cent. of the papers) as "shew" for the past tense of "to show" ought not to be possible, and the learning of difficult definitions and explanations

122

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

by heart, which are very evidently not understood, should be strongly discouraged. On the whole this very important subject is very feeble and disappointing in a school which aims at giving an English education to Chinese boys. "Some adverbs are elecquar" can scarcely convey any meaning to the boy who wrote it, and requires some ingenuity for its elucidation.

History.The English History papers exhibit a considerable acquaintance with the phraseology of the text-books, but when this is coupled with a very slight ability to explain its meaning it may be doubted whether the system of learning passages by heart is altogether conducive to a satisfactory knowledge of History. It is evident, however, that considerable trouble has been taken by the boys themselves or by their teachers, whereby a large number of facts have been committed to memory. The neatness also of nearly every paper was remarkable, and with few exceptions the writing was

excellent.

Geography.In this subject the memories of boys seemed overburdened with details crammed from books. They could repeat what they had learned, and when a question could be answered by doing so, they reproduced exactly paragraphs from their text-books. The general impression produced on reading the papers is that the teaching of geography might be greatly improved by the more frequent use of blank maps. In a number of instances sketch-maps of more than ordinary merit were drawn by boys in Class I. Few candidates gave satisfactory answers to the questions in Physical Geography.

((

Shakespeare.-Three Acts from

Henry V."

                 were offered by Class I. The papers exhibit painstaking and careful work both on the part of Masters and boys. The best average was obtained in section I. C,A.; in this section every boy passed; one received 90 and another 82 per cent. marks. It is worthy of note that a question requiring candidates to summarise in their own words the argument of a long speech was answered by the majority with marked success.

Latin. Of the Latin papers the less said the better. In the divisions I. C,A. and I. C,B. one boy, and one only, came any where near the standard offered for examination. All the others failed in the very elements of grammar, where also, with two exceptions, the third divisions failed also. For boys who cannot recognise the parts of speech-far less parse the simplest words-for these to offer several sections of " Casar" is absurd. In no language more than in Latin are the early grammatical rules important; but we think it unwise that the study of this subject should be continued at present. Book-keeping. Classes I. and II. were examined in this subject. Papers from Class I. were very good indeed, and those from Class II. fair. The style throughout was satisfactory.

General Information. A paper was set to Classes I. and II. only, affording scope for a variety of information upon current, local, and general topics. Though in accordance with the custom of previous years the marks awarded are used in calculating the total number of passes and failures we do not think it necessary to comment on the relative numbers. The questions at least gave an opportunity to boys of showing how far they understood the meaning of them, and how far they could express themselves when they had anything to answer.

                                Some of the papers were fairly well done, but the majority of boys in Class II. produced many absolutely unintelligible answers. Some answers afforded the examiners considerable diversion amidst a mass of monotonous work.

Arithmetic.-Classes I.A., I. C.A., and II. C,A. on the whole did very creditably. We think that II. C,A. should be grouped with a higher Class than V. In several Classes there was a deplorable exhibition of careless and inaccurate working. An examiner expects to find the majority of boys able to do simple questions in vulgar fractions, decimals, practice, and reduction, where these come within the range of a Class's reading, but in Classes I. to V., except those mentioned above, there was a conspicuous failure in the work in these elementary rules. A few boys did very well indeed, showing that the subject has been successfully taught to them, but we expected to see greater average proficiency shown by a whole class. The papers were carefully set on the pages offered. Every question was correctly answered by one boy or another, but many papers were disappointing. The methods employed do not always seem to be the best. One noticed the old stumbling blocks-the place of the decimal point in division, the order of operation of various signs in compound fractions, cancelling in l.c.m., and the order of terms in proportion--causing boys to offend, as well as very long methods where shorter ones are available. The unitary method" in proportion might be advantageously employed. Here and there a boy successfully grappled with a comparatively difficult problem, but on the whole the work was poor. The lower Classes, VI. VII., and VIII, with few

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15?? FEBRUARY, 1896. 123

exceptions, did satisfactorily. Boys seem to be pushed on too rapidly, and before they have thoroughly mastered, so as to be able to accurately apply, the simpler rules. What is required is the use of a very large number and variety of examples carefully graduated and illustrating each rule, as it comes under notice. Few, if any, books contain a sufficient number or variety, but the masters ought to be able to supply them. If this be done there might be more thoroughness.

  Algebra.─This subject has evidently been carefully and well taught in Classes I., II, and III. Very creditable papers were sent up by I. A., II. A., III. A. B., and the majority of the work was charac- terised by neatness and accuracy. Only a few bad answers were sent in by ignorant or careless boys. The unevenness in the percentages of passes in different Classes is not due to difference in the difficulty of papers, for where the questions were, in the opinion of the examiners, thought to be unequal, due allowance was made in the marking. In contrast to the Arithmetic, there were here very few of the common blunders, and it is evident that the careful teaching has been appreciated. Without wishing to detract from the conspicuous merit of much of the work in this subject, we think that one of the causes of success is due to the fact that an accurate knowledge of English is not so essential here as in such subjects as Grammar, History, and Composition.

of

Euclid.-The Euclid offered by Classes I., II. and III. is very disappointing. Any boy could have passed by doing accurate work on the First Book only; and yet but 44 boys passed out of 160 examined. Only six boys out of 45 in Class I. could write the sixth proposition correctly. With the exception of Class I. A., the whole work is very weak. There is very little grasp of the subject at all, and much evidence of attempted learning by heart: such attempts when they led, as they often did, to nonsense, were, as they deserved to be, severely marked; hence the low percentage passes. Over and over again boys wrote, or attempted to write, a proposition which they were not asked to write; and very few could apply I. 4 and 8 properly. If boys cannot do better than they have done, we think it undesirable that any time whatever should be spent on this subject, except in a few special cases. But if it is taught, care must be taken to discourage in every way possible the rote-learning which destroys all the value and the beauty of geometry. Boys should not be pushed on, even to the middle of Book I., till they have mastered the early propositions. Much more use ought to be made of the application of such propositions as 4 and 8 to the simplest kind of problems, of which a master should be able to supply a large store. In writing out a proposition. scarcely any boys paid any attention to punctuation-this may seem a small point but it is very essential if boys are to make any use of the arguments of Euclid. The method, too, of writing continuously in one paragraph is bad, but care should be taken, if the method of writing each sentence on a separate line be adopted, that each line is not necessarily begun with a capital letter. It was impossible to tell, in some cases, whether the argument was right or not in the mind of the boy; it was certainly not correct on paper. All the old confusion in the use of "but" and "and," "because" and "therefore," and in the data and quarenda in the particular enunciations appeared again and again. There was a general lacking in neatness in writing and arrangement, and sometimes the figures were lettered differently from the arguments which referred to them. Euclid being such excellent and simple English Prose, it seems desirable that it should be taught, but at present the time spent upon it is, in the majority of cases, wasted.

  English to Chinese.- A number of boys showed both knowledge of English and ability to write Chinese. In the middle and lower classes there was a good percentage of passes. The difficulty Chinese boys have in understanding the meaning of English words was, however, manifest in all classes. The following may serve as illustrations:-In Class I. 15 boy's out of 26 mistook the word what used relatively for the same word used interrogatively. In Class II.B. 13 boys out of 28 mis- translated the word highroad, making it mean a road at a lofty elevation. In the lower and middle classes much work was spoiled by boys, who could read English, being unable to write Chinese. Characters having a sound and tone like the Chinese equivalents of English words in the passages set, but with totally different meanings, were used, often in such a way as to destroy all the sense of the passage. Thus in VIII.A. 17 out of 39 boys wrote in Chinese words meaning close or quiet instead of the word bees. In IV.A. 9 boys out of 39 wrote the word for yellow instead of another word of the same sound and tone meaning locusts. In IV.B. boys were required to translate the phrase straight as an arrow; 4 wrote straight as fighting, 4 straight as scissors, and 1 straight as virtue.

These are typical instances. In the paper of IIIB. the word creased occurred, and no boy attempted to translate it. The practice of many boys is to use reading books in which above the English words Chinese equivalents have been written. It is, we think, a practice to be condemned; but if it is continued, the Master should see that the characters written in the books are such as really translate the English.

124

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 15TH FEBRUARY, 1896.

Boys should be taught to think out carefully the meaning of the entire piece set for translation, and of its several parts in their connection, before putting pen to paper. Some who failed rendered correctly a few detached sentences, and might with a little more care have passed.

Chinese to English.-In the Lower Classes many boys had committed to memory, and were able to reproduce, the renderings given to them by the Masters; whilst in the higher classes there were, in a few instances, laudable efforts at independent versions. The value of the answers would have been greater had candidates relied less on the English phrases learned in class, and more on the work done in the preparation of the lessons. That few boys are really competent to translate Chinese into English may be seen from the results of the extra prize examination. For this a sight passage was selected from the Chinese Classic of History. Twelve boys sent in papers. Two had really under- stood the piece and rendered it into fairly good English, securing 70 and 80 marks respectively out of a hundred. No other boy obtained more than 50 per cent.

Chinese School.-In the Chinese school marks were not awarded. All papers sent in were first examined and annotated by the native provincial graduate who assisted in this part of the examination. Those from each class were then distributed in three groups, according as they were adjudged to be of higher, medium or lower merit. There was a final selection of papers to show the best work done by each class.

The percentage of passes 32, Antithetic Couplets 55.

for the Chinese school is-Essay 30, Letter 45, Literature 30, Prosody

Assuming that examinations in the Chinese school are to be conducted on lines similar to those laid down for the holding of such examinations throughout China, we would call attention to the following points :-

1. Papers should be stamped for identification. Boys should not be allowed to bring into the Examination Room pieces of writing paper not uniform in size purchased at differ. ent shops. Paper of the proper kind should on the day of the examination be issued to candidates who might be charged the cost price.

2. Boys should be required to write single characters in the proper spaces.

3. In the Chinese school answers should be written in the order of the questions. Trigonometry.-One boy in I. C, b. took an easy paper in Trigonometry up to the Solution of Triangles, and produced accurate and fairly complete answers.

Pupil Teachers.-We examined the Pupil Teachers in their Practical and Theoretical Work, and were satisfied that they are able to give practical assistance to the Staff.

Drawing.-Classes IV., V. and VI. were examined in Map Drawing. The best work of each class is highly creditable. Some very good specimens of Freehand Drawing, the work of the best boys, were exhibited to the examiners, but no marks were assigned.

Finally, while we recognise in the work of individual boys evidence of sound and careful teaching, the general efficiency of the work appeared to us to be small. We think that boys are pushed on too rapidly, and we feel sure that more attention should be given to the teaching and the study of English. We believe that much good might be effected, and the standard of efficiency raised, if the ability and energy of the European Staff were directed more to the Chinese boys. And we are not confident that it is for the welfare of the School, or in the interests of the education of the Chinese, that the Non-Chinese boys should be in separate classes, and consequently the whole time of two European Masters given entirely to them.

We are pleased to be able to report very favourably on the discipline of the School and the general orderly behaviour of the boys. Lastly, our thanks are due to the Head Master and the Assistant Masters for their ready cooperation with us in all matters where we needed their assistance.

DICTATION AND TRANSLATION INTO CHINESE.

Class I.

It is noble to seek truth, and it is beautiful to find it. It is the ancient feeling of the human heart, that knowledge is better than riches; and it is deeply and sacredly true. To mark the course of human passions as they have flowed on in the ages that are past; to see why nations have risen, and why they have fallen; to speak of light, and heat, and the winds; to know what man has discovered in the heavens above and in the earth beneath; to hear the chemist unfold the marvellous properties which the Creator has locked up in a speck of earth ;-it is worth while in the days of our youth to strive hard for this great discipline.

A life of knowledge is not often a life of injury and crime. Whom does such a man oppress? With whose happiness does he interfere? In the pursuit of science he injures no man, and in the acquisition he does good to all.

Class II. A.

It is evidently the continent most thickly covered with cities and towns; and with high-roads, canals, and railways, weaving the towns into a living and ever-busy net-work. There civilisation has struck its roots deepest, and stretched its branches widest. There the arts and sciences have reached their highest development. There the great mechanical inventions which have knit the world into one vast inter-dependent society have had their birth; and commerce, manufactures, and agriculture have been brought to the greatest perfection. Europe has laid the whole world under contribution for the supply of her physical wants. In return the whole world has been laid under obligation to her for not less real benefits.

Class II. B.

It is so with all the crafts, and they are inseparably dependent one on another. The mason waits on the carpenter for his mallet, and the carpenter on the smith for his saw; the smith on the smelter for his iron, and the smelter on the miner for his ore. Each, moreover, needs the help of all the others the carpenter the smith, as much as the smith the carpenter; and both the mason, as much as the mason both. This helplessness of the single craftsman is altogether peculiar to the human artist. Amongst the lower animals it is not seen; and they have never heard of such a doctrine as that of the division of labour.

DICTATION.

Class II. C.

Shot is made by pouring melted lead through a colander, from a great height, into water beneath. In the descent, the shot becomes globular, from the same cause that drops of rain assume that form in falling. In various manufacturing towns shot of all sizes is made on a large scale, more or less as follows. High towers, which the workmen can ascend, are hollow, so that from the top molten lead may be made to fall as a shower into water beneath. The opposition of the air causes the roundness, and the coldness of the water does the hardening at once.

DICTATION AND TRANSLATION INTO CHINESE.

Class III A.

(Translate the first part only. End with the words "length of time."

At low water the sand becomes firm, and may be walked on in safety; but as the tide rises the water saturates the mass of sand and transforms it into a pulp of the consistency of mud. It is when in this state that the Sands are most dangerous; not only because. ships that then strike on them gradually sink into the ooze, but also because then the sand shifts from place to place, so as to render charts useless for any length of time.

.

Three lightships are placed to warn sailors of their approach to this dangerous shoal; one at the northern extremity, one at the southern extremity, and one on a point about the middle of the western side.

Class III. B.

(Translate the first part only. End with the words "of the law.")

The Charter, creased with age and injured by fire, but with John's seal hanging to it, is still to be seen.

When it is looked into, it seems to do very little. It bound the king not to demand money from his people without the consent of the great vassals and of the burghers of the cities; it required that no one should be made an officer of justice unless he had a knowledge of the law, and that the chief court of justice should not move about with the king, but be always in one place.

Nor was the king to sell, refuse, or delay justice to any man, nor to seize the person or goods of any freeman without the lawful judgment of his peers, --i.e., equals-according to the law of the land.

Class IV. A.

(Translate the first part only. End with the words "front ranks.")

Sometimes the people turn out of the village which the locusts are approaching, and attempt to stem the torrent. They dig trenches, they kindle fires, they attack them with branches of trees, they sweep them back with brushes; but all to no purpose. The trenches become filled with living locusts, the fires are smothered with dead ones, and the vast column moves on in complete ignorance of the fate of the front ranks.

As for attempting to brush away this terrible enemy one might as well expect to sweep back the flowing tide with a broom. Even the direction of the march cannot be changed. A common instinct seems to carry them right onward. They pursue their line of march with the regularity of a dis- ciplined army.

Class IV. B.C.

(Translate the first part only. End with the word "fatigue.")

The wise Romans male excellent roads, extending through all parts of their empire; and some of them can yet be traced in English, running along as straight as an arrow. One of these is Watling Street, so often mentioned in history. After the fall of the Roman Empire their roads were neglected, and they fell into decay, and the traveller could hardly proceed without great danger, or, at least, without great fatigue.

All at once your horse plunged into a marsh, or you came to a river, and the bridge was broken down; and when you tried to ford the stream, your horse might get out of his depth, and then he and his rider would be nearly drowned.

Class V. A.

(Translate the first part only.

End with the words "her cottage window.")

There was once a poor old widow, who, finding it hard work to get her living at home, thought she would like to go to the gold-diggings in Australia. So she crossed the sea to that far-off country. The only treasures she possessed she took with her. One of these was a pet skylark, which had been used to live in a small wicker cage, outside her cottage window.

  When she got to Australia, she hired a hut, and got her living by washing the gold-diggers' clothes and cooking their dinners. Day after day, the lark sang his happy song beside her door. She listened and it cheered her at her work. Some of the gold-diggers listened too.

Class V. B.

(Translate the first part only. End with the word "free.")

Down sank the shark in the clear water and swam right below the ship. Turning on its back, it opened wide its jaws and swallowed both bait and hook. A strong pull at the rope by the sailors fastened the hook deep in the shark's body. At once the creature struggled desperately to get free.

But the rope was strong, and the men held fast and pulled with a will. The shark was caught at last and killed. Then once more the ship spread her sails to the breeze and bounded on her way across the sea. This method of catching the shark is often practised on board ships sailing in the

Tropics.

Class VI. A.

End with the words "remained without the latch.")

The farmer's wife was always telling him that he ought to get the latch mended; but he used to say that it would cost six-pence, and that it was not worth while. He said that the children might as well be driving the sheep and poultry in and out of the yard and the field as be doing nothing. So the gate remained without the latch.

One day a fat pig got out of its sty, and, pushing open the gate, ran into the field, and thence wandered into a thick wood. The pig was soon missed.

Class VI. B.

(Translate the first part only. End with the word "straw.")

The fly has no jaws or teeth with which to chew its food, but it has something which does quite as well. Its lips are made into a fine tube, and it sucks up its food, just as we have often sucked up water through a straw.

I am sure you must often have wondered how a fly can walk up the walls of a room or along the ceiling. On its feet it has a great number of small hairs which have the power of sticking to the wall, and thus it can hang, back downwards, quite easily.

Class VI. C.

(Translate the first part only. End with the words "give him some.")

Α poor woman, in one of the cities of India, had a stall in the market-place, where she sold fruit. An elephant used to go by, and always stopped to look at her stall. She knew how fond the elephant was of fruit; and she used, now and then, to give him some.

One day the elephant fell into a passion with his keeper. He broke loose, and ran through the market, trampling down everything before him.

Class VII. A.

(Translate the first part only. End with the words "pick up.")

One day the window was open, and the bird flew out. Its master thought it was lost; but it soon came back. After that, it was allowed to fly in and out as it pleased. It always took care to be in at meal times, when there were crumbs for it to pick up.

Summer and winter passed away, and still the bird never tried to leave its master. It might be out for hours, but it always came back.

Class VII. B.

It is made of dry

As soon as the young ones are hatched, away the little creatures run to the water! They need no school and no teaching, for God has made them so that they can swim at once.

The bees are at work. They have been up a long time. Make haste, that we may go and watch them near the hive. It is good for you and for me to rise with the sun, and the birds, and the bees. Now, kneel down, and thank God that He has kept you all through the night. Ask him to bless

   This is the tree where the bird has its nest. Let us look in it now. Here it is. I can see three young ones in it-one, two, three. How soft and warm they are! We may look at them, but we must not take them out.

The Smith that made a Hiss.

There was once upon a time a poor bungling man who called himself a smith, but who know nothing of his craft. He took a good piece of iron and set to work to make a horse-shoe. He made the iron red-hot, and he hammered and hammered away, all to no purpose. It would not turn into a shoe! So he changed his mind and said-"Oh, never mind! It will make a very good nail." He put it into the fire again and made it red-hot. And again he hammered away, but it would not turn into a nail! "Well, never mind!" said he, "if it won't make a nail it will make a very good hiss!" So again he

put it into the fire, and when it was red-hot he plunged it into a vessel of water where it made a loud hiss! And this was all he had been able to do after several hours hard work!

We must learn to work definitely, with a purpose, and without waste, either of power or material.

Class III.

The Painter and his Picture.

One day when Sir James Thornhill was painting the inside of the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral, he paused in his work and stepped back to the edge of the platform to look at what he had done. Intent upon his work, he had completely forgotten where he was, and in another moment would have fallen backwards from the platform and been dashed to pieces on the pavement below. But a friend who was with him, perceiving his danger, caught up a brush, and, filling it with colour, made a large blotch upon the picture. The artist sprang forward to protect his work, and his life was saved, though at the expense of his picture.

It is well for us that some of our plans are overthrown and spoiled. God often shows His wisdom and mercy in thwarting human designs.

A traveller once journeyed, riding on a hired ass, along a road exposed to the full heat of a burn- ing sun. Not finding so much as a bush under which to take shelter, the thought struck him that it The owner of the would not be a bad plan to dismount and seat himself in the shadow of the ass.

A fierce dispute arose between the owner of the ass and its rider, and at last from words they came to blows which finally resulted in an action at law.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 50.

The following Report of the Acting Superintendent of Victoria Gaol for 1895, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 11th instant, is published.

By Cominand,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 14th February, 1896.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART, Colonial Secretary.

No. 36.

VICTORIA GAOL, HONGKONG, 28th January, 1896. SIR,I have the honour to transmit, for His Excellency the Governor's information, the Annual Report on the Gaol Department for 1895.

2. The total number of admissions was 5,014, of which 673 had been previously convicted. 3. The daily average number of prisoners in the Gaol was a fraction over 472 as compared with 455 in 1894, but as the admissions in 1895 exceeded those in the former year by 1,101, the inference is that the number of prisoners with long sentences is still steadily decreasing.

4. There were 5,365 prison offences as compared with 5,120 in 1894.

The profit in industrial labour during the year amounts to $1,936.54.

5. The addition to the Gaol consisting of 155 separate cells was completed in December last, so that it is now possible to confine a large number of prisoners separately during the night.

6. Steps are being taken to improve the prison for the accommodation of females, and also for the erection of suitable quarters for the European officers. Both these improvements have been long required.

7. The staff of the Gaol has been reorganized during the year, chiefly by the engagement of a number of Indian Turnkeys, and a corresponding reduction in the European staff. Mr. CRAIG joined as Warden in February, and a few other officers have since come out froin England.

8. I am glad to be able to report that the staff by these changes is now in a very efficient con- dition.

The usual returns accompany this report.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

A. M. THOMSON, Acting Superintendent.

1. Scholarships from Belilios Scholarship Fund No. 1 shall be open to candidates recommended to the Trustees by the Head Master of Queen's College from among pupils of the College; they must be Chinese on the mother's side, and from a class not lower than Class III.

Scholarships from Belilios Trust Fund No. 3 shall be open to all-comers, but candidates coming from Schools other than Queen's College shall have a preference.

2. The Scholarships shall be of the value of $100 each, and shall be awarded for periods of one year, the Trustees reserving to themselves power to continue them during succeeding years or not, according to the funds at their disposal and the reports they receive as to the progress and conduct of the scholars. These reports will be obtained from the Superintendent of the Alice Memorial and Nethersole Hospitals and from the Secretary of the College of Medicine for Chinese, either of whom may, in case of gross misconduct on the part of a scholar, recommend that payment of the Scholarship be stopped forthwith.

3. Belilios Scholars shall, during the period of tenure, regularly attend the classes of the Hong- kong College of Medicine for Chinese in the order prescribed by the Senate of the College. The Trustees have made arrangements that the scholars shall be permitted to attend those classes for a fee of $40 a year. Each scholar shall present himself for all class examinations, as well as for the professional examinations, at the prescribed times, and by the results of such examinations will the Trustees be in part guided in the matter of continuing or discontinuing any Scholarship.

4. Belilios Scholars shall undertake to discharge such part of the work of the Alice Memorial and Nethersole Hospitals as shall from time to time be assigned to them by the Superintendent of the Hospitals and shall, if required, be prepared to become resident students of either of the Hospitals.

5. On accepting a Scholarship, each scholar shall lodge with the Secretary of the Trustees, by means of a printed form which will be supplied to each scholar, a guarantee signed by a householder in Hongkong, to the effect that he shall refund to the Trustees all monies paid to the said scholar in case the latter shall not prosecute his studies for the full period of his Scholarship or in case he shall grossly misconduct himself as a scholar.

   The following Finding of the Marine Court of enquiry into the loss of the British barque Lynnwood is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 7th March, 1896.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART, Colonial Secretary.

FINDING.

   We find that the British barque Lynnwood (80,035), of Windsor, N.S., of which JOHN A. B. Ross was Master, whose Certificate of Competency as Master is No. 2003 of Canada, left Shanghai in ballast for Manila on the 20th February last.

Fresh Northerly and North-Easterly winds with rain and overcast weather were experienced after leaving the Saddles, and on the morning of the 16th at 1.30 A.M. the ship struck on the North- East edge of the Pratas Shoal and was afterwards abandoned, the Master and crew taking to the boats were picked up first by the Russian ship of war Vladimir Manomach and afterwards by the German steamer Cassius which latter ship brought them in to Hongkong.

Having carefully considered the evidence of the Master and First Mate, the Court is of opinion that the ship was navigated in a proper and seamanlike manner though it would seem that if an addi- tional compass had been placed on deck as a standard it might have assisted towards the more efficient navigation of the ship.

The cause of the casualty appears to have been that the distance run in the South-West course through the Formosa Straits was under-estimated placing the ship more Westerly than her supposed position when the course was altered to South by East, but the Patent Log was carefully used and due allowance appears to have been made for current drift and heave of the sea. No observation of the sun nor stars were possible during the voyage, and the position of the ship was depending on the dead reckoning only.

After the casualty everything was done that proper seamanship suggested and the ship does not appear to have been prematurely abandoned.

   Under the circumstances the Court sees no reason to deal with the Certificates of the Captain or First Mate.

Given under our hands at Hongkong, this 5th day of March, 1896.
