HONG KONG STORM SIGNAL CODES

Storm Warnings are issued by tfie Royal Observatory, Hongkong, by means of Local and Non-Local Storm

Signal Codes. The Local Code is as follows:

Recommended for use in the Far East at a Conference of Directors of Far Eastern Weather Services held at

Hongkong in the year 1930.

Adopted at Hongkong from March 1, 1931.

Signal. Symbol. DAY SIGNALS Meaning.

1 — T A- depression or typhoon exists which may possibly affect the locality.

Strong wind with squalls may possibly occur from the S.W. (S-W).

-L Strong wind with squalls may possibly occur from the S.E. (E-S).

Typhoon dangerous but danger to locality hot imminent.

A Gale expected from the N.W. (W-N).

6 — V Gale expected from the S.W. (S-W).

I Gale expected from the N.E. (N-E).

# Gale expected from the S.E. (E-S).

9 — I Gale expected to increase.

+ Wind of typhoon force expected (any direction).

Signal No. 4 will be used in the Philippines, but not at Hongkong, the information it conveys being given by the

Non-Local Signals.

Signals 5 to 8 are not hoisted until it is tolerably certain that a gale (40-45 m.p.h. by the Dines Anemometer)

will occur at Hongkong or Gap Rock, or when a typhoon is sufficiently near to warrant a danger, signal, although

the occurrence of a gale is by no means certain.

If, with one of signals 5 to 8 hoisted, conditions indicate that the wind will not only increase but attain hurricane

i force, signal No. 9 may be dispensed with, thus giving the longest possible warning of destructive winds.

Signal No. 10 will be accompanied by three explosive bombs, fired at intervals of 10 seconds at the Water

Police Station and repeated at the Harbour Office.

When the centre of a typhoon passes over the locality the wind decreases rapidly to a calm, or nearly calm,

and blows violently' from the opposite direction when the centre has passed.

The signal will be lowered when it is considered that all danger is over.

The Day Signals will be displayed on the Radio mast at the Royal Observatory, at the Harbour Office, H.M.S.

Tamar, Green Island, Hongkong & Kowloon Wharf & Godown Co., the Standard-Vacuum Oil Co. at Lai-chi-kok, the

flagstaff near the Field Officer’s Quarters at Lyemun, Gough Hill Police Station and Taipo (District Officer’s flagstaff)

NIGHT SIGNALS (Lamps)

i 10

WHITE WHITE GREEN WHITE WHITE GREEN GREEN WHITE GREEN RED

WHITE GREEN WHITE WHITE GREEN WHITE GREEN WHITE GREEN GREEN

WHITE WHITE GREEN RED GREEN WHITE WHITE GREEN GREEN RED

The Night Signals will be displayed, at sunset, on the Radio mast at the Royal Observatory, on the tower of

the Railway Station, H.M.S. Tamar, the Harbour Office, on the flagstaff near the Field Officer’s Quarters at

Lyemun, Kowloon City Police Station, and at Gough Hill Police Station. They will have the same signification

as the day signals.

Signal No. 10 will be accompanied by explosive bofhbs as above, in the event of the information conveyed

by this signal being first published at night.

SUPPLEMENTARY WARNINGS

When Local Signals are displayed in the Harbour, signals will be displayed as follows :

When No. 1 Signal is displayed in the Harbour.

Black T by day.

2 Red Lights vertical by night

When Signals Nos. 6 to 10 are displayed in the Harbour.

Black Cone by day.

2 Green Lights vertical by night.

These Signals will be displayed at the following Stations:

| Tai O | Waglan

n always be given to ocean vessels, on demand, by signal from Lighthouses, or by wireless

The object of the code is to give at least 24 hours warning of a gale (Force 8 by Beaufort Scale, or 40-46

m.p.h., mean velocity by Dines Anemometer) and also warnings of expected changes in the direction and force

of the wind. Owing however to the uncertain movements of typhoons and to insufficient telegraphic observations,

it will occasionally happen that signals 6 to 8 may be displayed without a gale occurring at Hongkong, or even

Gap Rock, but the reverse is not likely to happen, except in the case of typhoons forming in the vicinity and

travelling rapidly towards Hongkong, or should the direction of motion of a located typhoon alter, or its rate

of progression increase, abnormally.

Signal No. 1 is intended as a warning to “Stand By” and watch for the next signal. When it is hoisted after

one of Nos. 5 to 8 has been displayed it will mean that, On account of a change in the track of the typhoon, or

for some other reason, a gale is no longer expected from the direction indicated by the last signal, and that

another black signal may possibly be hoisted later.

NON-LOCAL SIGNALS

The Non-Local Code of Storm Signals gives the latitude and longitude of the storm centre, its direction of

motion, and a signal indicating the degree of accuracy with which it is believed the position of the centre has

' n located. A signal giving the time at which the warning was issued is hoisted at the mast-head.

Copies

" of the code may be

’■* obtained oin application to the Observatory.

WEIGHTS AND MEASURES

In China, Standards of Weights, Measures and Length vary all over the

country. Generally speaking, two kinds of standard are now in use, namely,

the old and the new. The old standard was formulated from the Weights and

Measures Law promulgated in 1914, establishing a double system, the standard

metric unit and that based on Ymq Tsao L'h’ih or “Builder’s Foot” for length and

Kuping tael or Liang for weight. The law governing the new standard was

promulgated by the National Government on February 6, 1929 and it is intended

to be the legal standard of weights and measures acceptable throughout China.

For convenience sake and customary usage it also established a double system;

one is the standard metric unit and the other, which is temporary in nature and

to be abolished as soon as the people are accustomed to the use of standard units,

is designed only for market use. However, the latter is derived from the former

by taking one litre of Kung Sheng as one Shih Sheng which is nearest to the

Chinese customary unit of capacity Sheng one half kilogram as one Shih Chin

which is the average weight of the different varieties of “Chin” in different

localities; and one third of a meter or Kung Ch’ih as one Sh’ih Ch’ih which is the

average length of different varieties of Chinese “Foot” in different localities, thus

constituting the so-called 1-2-3-system of Chinese weights and measures based on

International metric standard. Such a system, as devised by the Ministry of

Industry, Commerce and Labour and proclaimed by the National Government to

be put into force may also have great bearing on the users of British “ Foot-Pound”

system by taking the following approximate value : 1 quart equals to 1 litre,

1 pound equals to £ kilogram and 1 yard equals to 1 meter. The Russian and

Japanese system can also be thus varied accordingly so as to fit themselves to the

International System. The following is a comparative table showing both the old

mm the new standards together with their approximate foreign equivalents :

KOWLOON EXTENSION AGREEMENT, 1898

Whereas it has for many years past heen recognised that an extension of Hong-

kong territory is necessary for the proper defence and protection of the Colony,

It has now been agreed between the Governments of Great Britain and China

that the limits of British territory shall be enlarged under lease to the extent

indicated generally on the annexed map.

The United States of America,- the British Empire, France and Japan, wit!

a view to the preservation of the general peace and the maintenance of tln i ,

rights in relation to their insular possessions and insular dominions in th

regions of the Pacific Ocean, have determined to conclude a treaty to this efft ■

and have appointed as their plenipotentiaries :—

The President of the United States

His Majesty the King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain aici

Ireland, and of the British Dominions beyond the seas, Emperor <>;

India

And

For the Dominion of Canada

For the Commonwealth of Australia

For the Dominion of New Zealand

Who, having communicated their full powers found in good and due form, ha\-

agreed as follows:—

Article I.—The high contracting parties agree as between themselves t<-

respect their rights in relation to their insular possessions and insular dominions in

the region of the Pacific Ocean. If there should develop between any of the

high contracting parties a controversy arising out of any Pacific question and

involving their said rights, which is not satisfactorily settled by diplomacy and

likely to affect the harmonious accord now happily subsisting between them, they

shall invite the other high contracting parties to a joint conference to which tlu

whole subject will be referred for consideration and adjustment.

Article II.—If the said rights are threatened by the aggressive action of ar

other Power, the high contracting parties shall communicate with one another

fully and frankly in order to arrive at an understanding as to the most efficient

measures to be jointly or separately taken to meet the particular situation.

Article III.—This Agreement shall remain in force for ten years from the

time it shall take effect, and after the expiration of said period it shall continue to

be in force subject to the right of any of the high contracting parties to terminate

it upon twelve months’ notice.

Article IV.—This Agreement shall be ratified as soon as possible in accord-

ance with the constitutional methods of the high contracting parties and shall

Reservations.—The signing of this Treaty is on the part of the United States

subject to (reservations affecting) the island of Tap and what are termed the

Mandate Islands in the Pacific Ocean, north of the Equator, the negotiations in

WASHINGTON CONFERENCE RESOLUTIONS

; It should also be observed that the controversies to which the proposed Treaty refers

do not include questions which, according to the principles of international law,

lie exclusively within the domestic jurisdiction of the respective Powers.

In the course of his address, Senator Lodge stated : “ To put it in a few words

- the Treaty provides that the four signatory Powers will agree between themselves

1 in regard to their insular possessions and dominions in the region of the Pacific,

' and that if any controversy should arise as to such rights all the high contracting

I parties shall be invited to a joint conference looking to the adjustment of such

I 'controversy. They agree to take similar action in the case of aggression by any

I other Power upon these insular possessions or dominions. This Agreement is to

| remain in force for ten years, and, after ratification under the constitutional

■ methods of the high contracting parties, the existing agreement between Great

I Britain and Japan, which was concluded at London on July 13, 1911, shall

^ terminate. Each signer is bound to respect the rights of the others, and before

I taking action in any controversy to consult with them. There is no provision for

| the use of force to carry out any of the terms of the Agreement, and no military or

| naval stations lurk anywhere in the background or under cover of these plain and

I direct clauses. The surest way to prevent war is to remove the cause of war.

| This is an attempt to remove the cause of war over a great area of the globe’s

| surface by reliance upon the good faith and honest intentions of the nations which

J signed this Treaty solving all differences through a process of diplomacy and joint

B consideration and conciliation.

TERRITORIAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE INTEGRITY OF CHINA

The Far Eastern Committee of the Conference unanimously adopted a resolu-

l tion declaring in favour of the territorial and administrative integrity of China.

| The resolution, which was drafted and presented by Senator Root, was signed by

. eight Powers, China refraining from appending her signature as being unfitting

in a document regarding herself.

Following is the text of the resolution:—“It is the firm intention of the

: Powers attending the Conference, firstly, to respect the sovereignty, independence

and territorial and administrative integrity of China; secondly, to provide the fullest,

• unembarrassed opportunity for China to develop and to maintain an effective and

| stable Government; thirdly, to use their influence for the purpose of effectively

! establishing and maintaining the principle of equal opportunity for commerce and

industry to all nations throughout Chinese territory; fourthly, to refrain from taking

^ advantage of present conditions in order to seek special rights and privileges

: abridging the rights of subjects of friendly States, and also to refrain from

: Countenancing any action inimical to the security of such States.”

The Far Eastern Committee passed a resolution, suggested by Sir Auckland.

< Geddes, under which the Powers attending the Conference declared their inten-.

■ tion “ not to enter into any treaty, agreement, arrangement, or understanding with,

one another, or individually or collectively with any Power or Powers, which.

* infringes or impairs the principles declared by the resolution adopted by the Com-,

mittee on the 21st ult.” (i.e., Senator Root’s resolution declaring for the territorial!

and administrative integrity of China).

WASHINGTON CONFERENCE RESOLUTIONS

FOREIGN POST OFFICES IN CHINA

Representatives of the nine Powers sitting as a Committee on the Pacific a !

Far Eastern questions adopted a resolution in favour of the relinquishment -i

Foreign post-office privileges in China. All the Powers agreed upon January 1st, 19: ,

as the date of relinquishment.

The text of the resolution is :— “ Recognising the justice of the desire expres

by the Chinese Government to secure the abolition of foreign postal agencies

freaty, it is resolved:

“ I:—That the four Powers having such postal agencies agree to th

abandonment, subject to the following conditions : First, that an efficient Chin,

postal service be maintained; second, that an assurance be given by the Chin.

'Government that they contemplate no change in the pi'esent postal administrat;

;as far as the status of the foreign Co-Director-General is concerned.

“II:—To enable China and the Powers concerned to make the necessa:

■dispositions this arrangement shall come into force not later than (date blank'.

Pending the complete withdrawal of foreign postal agencies the four Powers concerned

severally undertake to afford full facilities to the Chinese Customs authorities

•examine all postal matter (except ordinary letters, whether registered or not, wit

upon external examination appear to contain written matter) passing through with .

wiew to ascertaining whether they contain articles of dutiable contraband or othe -

rwise contravening the Customs regulations and laws of China.”

recommendations regarding the means to improve’the existing conditions of adminis-

tration of justice in China and to assist the efforts of the Chinese Government '

effect such legislation and judicial reforms as will warrant the Powers in relinquishi

progressively or otherwise their rights of extra-territoriality.

The Commission shall be constituted within three months after the adjournment

of the Conference, and be instructed to submit its report and recommendations within

a vear after the Commission’s first meeting. Each of the Powers shall be deemed free

to accept or reject all or any portion of the recommendations, but in no case are any

of the Powers to make acceptance directly or indirectly dependent on China’s granting

any special concession, favour, benefit, or immunity, whether political or economic.

An additional resolution provides that non-signatory Powers having extra-terri-

torial rights in China may accede to the resolution in regard to extra-territoriality

within three months after the adjournment of the Conference.

A further additional resolution expresses China’s satisfaction with the sympathy

ofintention

the Powers in regarda toChinese

to appoint the abolition

Commission,

being understood that China is free to accept or reject any or all of the recommenda-

Commission and in every way to facilitate the successful accomplishment of its task.

WASHINGTON CONFERENCE RESOLUTIONS

RADIO STATIONS IN CHINA

A report was submitted by the Sub-Committee on Drafting relating to radio

stations for China which states that representatives of the nine Powers at the

Conference decided that all radio stations in China, whether maintained under the

provisions of the International Protocol of September, 1901, or, in fact maintained

on the grounds of any of the foreign Legations in China, shall be limited in use to

sending and receiving Glovernment messages and shall not receive or send commercial,

personal, or unofficial messages, including Press matter.

It is provided, however, that in case all other telegraphic communication is inter-

rupted, then, upon official notification, accompanied by proof of such interruption, to

the Chinese Ministry of Communications such stations may afford temporary facilities

for messages excluded as before-mentioned until the Chinese Government notify the

termination of the interruption.

All radio stations on Chinese territory operated by foreign Governments’ sub-

jects under treaties or concessions shall limit the messages sent or received by the

terms of the treaty or concession under which the respective stations are maintained.

Any radio station maintained without the authority of the Chinese Government shall

be transferred to China to be operated under the direction of the Chinese Ministry of

Communications, against compensation to the owners for the value of the installation,

as soon as the Ministry is prepared to operate the same effectively for general public

benefit. Should any question arise regarding radio stations in leased territories,

the South Manchuria railway zone, or the French Concession in Shanghai they

shall be regarded as matters for discussion between the Chinese Government and the

Governments concerned. Owners or managers of all foreign radio stations shall

confer with the Chinese Ministry of Communications for the purpose of seeking a

common arrangement to avoid interference in the use of wave lengths by wireless

stations in China, subject to such a general arrangement as may be made by the

International Conference convened for revision of the rules established by the

London International Radio Telegraph Convention of 1912.

53 and 54 Victoria, Chapter 37

An Act to Consolidate the Foreign Jurisdiction Acts

[4th August, 1890]

Whereas by treaty, capitulation grant, usage, sufferance, and other

lawful means, Her Majesty the Queen has jurisdiction within divers

foreign countries, and it is expedient to consolidate the Acts relating to

the exercise of Her Majesty’s jurisdiction out of Her dominions:

Be it therefore enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by

and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal,

and Commons, in this present Parhament assembled, and by the

authority of the same, as follows :

1. —It is and shall be lawful for Her Majesty the Queen to hold

exercise, and enjoy any jurisdiction which Her Majesty now has or may loreignoonnt%^

at any time hereafter have within a foreign country in the same and as

ample a manner as if Her Majesty had acquired that jurisdiction by the

cession or conquest of territory.

2. —Where a foreign country is not subject to any government from

whom Her Majesty the Queen might obtain jurisdiction in the manner

recited by this Act, Her Majesty shall by virtue of this Act have jurisdic- in countries 11

tion over Her Majesty’s subjects for the time being resident in or resort- governments "

ing to that country, and that jurisdiction shall be jurisdiction of Her

Majesty in a foreign country within the meaning of the other provisions

of this Act.

3. —Every act and thing done in pursuance of any jurisdiction of He

Majesty in n foreign country shall be as valid as if it had been done £nce of jur^dic-

according to the local law then in force in that country. tion.

4. —(1) If in any proceeding, civil or criminal, in a Court in He

Majesty’s dominions or held under the authority of Her Majesty, any exte^of hlris-

question arises as to the existence or extent of any jurisdiction of Her diction in foreign.

Majesty in a foreign country, a Secretary of State shall, on the application oonntry'

of the Court, send to the Court within a reasonable time his decision on

the question, and his decision shall for the purposes of the proceeding

be final.

(2) The Court shall send to the Secretary of State, in a document

under the seal of the Court, or signed by a Judge of the Court, questions

framed so as properly to raise the question, and sufficient answers to

those questions shall be returned by the Secretary of State to the Court,

and those answers shall, on production thereof, be conclusive evidence of

the matters therein contained.

5. —(1) It shall be lawful for Her Majesty the Queen in Counci

if she thinks fit, by Order to direct that all or any of the enactments ^“t’seheduie

described in the First Schedule to this Act, or any enactments for the

time being in force amending or substituted for the same, shall extend,

with or without any exceptions, adaptations, or modifications in the

Order mentioned, to any foreign country in which for the time being

Her Majesty has jurisdiction.

18 FOREIGN JURISDICTION ACT, 1890

(2.) Thereupon those enactments shall, to the extent of that •

jurisdiction, operate as if that country were a British possession, and as j

if Her' Majesty in Council were the Legislature of that possession.

courtis so authorised, the supreme criminal court of that possession may r

cause him to be kept in safe and proper custody, and so soon as con-

veniently may be may inquire of, try, and determine the offence, and on j

conviction punish the offender according to the laws in force in that !

behalf within that possession in the same manner as if the offence had

been committed within the jurisdiction of that criminal court.

Provided that—

(a) A person so charged may, before being so sent for tria ,

tender for examination to a British court in the foreign country

where the offence is alleged to have been committed any

competent witness whose evidence he deems material for his

defence and whom he alleges himself unable to produce at the

trial in the British possession:

(b) In such case the British court in the foreign country shali

as though he bad been tendered at a trial before that court, and

shall cause the evidence so taken to be reduced into writing,

and shall transmit to the criminal court of the British possess! ;

certified as correct under the seal of the court before which th •

evidence was taken, or the signature of a judge of that court:

(c) Thereupon the court of the British possession before which the

trial takes place shall allow so much of the evidence so taken as

of that court, had the witness been produced and examined at

the trial, to be read and received as legal evidence at the trial •

(d) The court of the British possession shall admit and give effect

to the law by which the alleged offender would have been tried

by the British court in the foreign country in which his offenc

is alleged to have been committed, as far as that law relates to

the criminality of the act alleged to have been committed, or

the nature or degree of the offence, or the punishment thereof,

if the law differs in those respects from the law in force in that

British possession.

(2) Nothing in this section shall alter or repeal any law, statute, or

usage by virtue of which any offence committed out of Her Majesty’s

dominions may, irrespectively of this Act, be inquired of, tried, determined

and punished within Her Majesty’s dominions, or any part thereof.

[Declaration of the Nationalist Government on July 7, 1928.]

On July 7, 1928, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Nationalist Gov-

ernment* made the following declaration (translation) on the conclusion of

new Treaties with the Powers:

“The Nationalist Government, with a view to adapting themselves to the

present day circumstances and with the object of promoting the welfare of

and the friendly relations between China and different countries, have always

considered the abrogation of all the unequal Treaties and the conclusion of

new Treaties on the basis of equality and mutual respect for territorial

sovereignty as the most pressing problem at the present time. These aims have

been embodied in declarations repeatedly made by the Nationalist Government.

“Now that the unification of China is an accomplished fact, it is the task

of the Nationalist Government to make every effort to fully realize these aims.

While they will continue to afford protection to foreign lives and property in

China, according to law, the Nationalist Government hereby make the follow-

ing specific declaration with regard to all the unequal Treaties:

“(1) All the unequal Treaties between the Republic of China and other

countries, which have already expired, shall be ipso facto abrogated, and new

Treaties shall be concluded.

“(2) The Nationalist Government will immediately take steps to terminate,

in accordance with proper procedure, those unequal Treaties which have not

yet expired, and conclude new Treaties.

“(3) In the case of old Treaties which have already expired, but which

have not yet been replaced by new Treaties, the Nationalist Government will

promulgate appropriate interim regulations to meet the exigencies of such

situation.”

Interim Regulations.

At the same time the Nationalist Government issued the following Pro-

visional Regulations Governing the Relations between China and the Powers

after the Abrogation of the Old Treaties and pending the Conclusion of New

Treaties: —

“1 Foreign countries and foreigners, as designated in these Regulations,

apply only to those foreign countries and the nationals theriof whose Treaties

with China have already expired, and with whom new Treaties have not yet

been concluded.

“2 All diplomatic officials and consular officials of foreign countries sta-

tioned in China shall be entitled to proper treatment accorded under inter-

national law.

“3. The persons and properties of foreigners in China shall receive due

protection under Chinese Law.

“4. Foreigners in China shall be subject to the regulations of Chinese Law

and the jurisdiction of Chinese Law Courts.

Republic* Since October 10, 1928, the English designation has been altered to the “ National Government of the

of China.”

“6. All taxes and duties which Chinese citizens are under obligation to pay

THE ANTI-WAR TREATY (KELLOGG PACT)

1.—UNITED STATES, INVITATION TO CHINA.

Legation of the United States of America

Peking, August 27, 1028.

^ Excellency:

I have the honour to inform you that the Governments of Germany, the

United States of America', Belgium, France, Great Britain, Canada, Australia,

New Zealand, South Africa, The Irish Free State, India, Italy, Japan, Poland,

and Czecho-Slovakia have this day signed in Paris a treaty binding them to

| renounce war as an instrument of national policy m their relations with one

\ another and to seek only by pacific means the settlement of or solution of all

•disputes which may arise among them

This treaty, as Your Excellency is aware, is the outcome of negotiations

which commenced on June 20, 1927, when M. Briand, Minister for Foreign

I Affairs of the French Republic!, submitted to my Government a draft of a pact

i of perpetual friendship between France and the United States. In the course

| of the subsequent negotiations this idea was extended so as to include as

original signatories of the anti-war treaty not only France and the United

I States but also Japan, the British Empire and all the Governments which

I participated with France and Great Britain in the Locarno agreements, namely,

Belgium, Czecho-Slovakia, Germany, Italy, and Poland. This procedure met

; the point raised by the British Government in its note of May 19, 1928, where

it stated that the treaty from its very nature was not one which concerned that

; Government alone but was one in which that Government could not undertake

to participate otherwise than jointly and simultaneously with the Government

in the Dominions and the Government of India; it also settled satisfactorily

the question whether there was any inconsistency between the new treaty and

the treaties of Locarno, thus meeting the observations of the French Govern-

ment as to the necessity of extending the number of original signatories.

The decision to limit the original signatories to the Powers named above,

that is, to the United States, Japan, the parties to the (Locarno treaties, the

British Dominions, and India was based entirely upon practical considerations.

( It was the desire of the United States that the negotiations be successfully con-

cluded at the earliest possible moment and that the treaty become operative

; without the delay that would inevitably result were prior universal acceptance

made a condition

moreover, precedent

that if these Powersto its

a simple renunciationfelt,of

' war as an instrumtnt of national policy, there could be no doubt that most if

| not all the other Powers of the world would find the formula equally acceptable

and would hasten to lend their unqualified support to so impressive a move

j ment for the perpetuation of peace. The United States has, however, been

I anxious from the beginning that no state should feel deprived of an opport-

unity to participate promptly in the new treaty and thus not only align

itself formally and solemnly with this new manifestation of the popular demand

for world peace but also avail itself of the identical benefits enjoyed by the

original signatories Accordingly, in the draft treaty proposed by it, the

United States made specific provision for participation in the treaty by any

and every Power desiring to identify itself therewith and this same provision

is found in the definitive instrument signed to-day in Paris. It will also be

observed that the Powers signing the treaty have recorded in the preamble

*2

36 KEIXOGG PACT

their hope that every nation of the world will participate in the treaty and

in that connection I am happy to be able to report that my Government hay.

already received from several Governments informal indications that they are

prepared to do so at the earliest possible moment. This convincing evidence

of the world wide interest and sympathy which the new treaty has evoked is

most gratifying to all the Governments concerned.

In these circumstances I have the honour formally to communicate to '

Your Excellency for your consideration, and for the approval of your Gov-

ernment, if it concurs therein, the text of the above-mentioned treaty as

signed to-day in Paris, omitting only that part of the preamble which names

the several plenipotentiaries. The text is as follows:

“The President of the German Reich, the President of the United States

of America, His Majesty the King of the Belgians, the President of the

French Republic, His Majesty the King of Great Britain, Ireland, and the

British Dominions beyond the Seas, Emperor of India, His Majesty the

King of Italy, His Majesty the Emperor of Japan, the President of the

Republic of Poland, the President of the Czecho-Slovakian Republic, deeply

sensible of their solemn duty to promote the welfare of mankind;

“Persuaded that the time has come when a frank prescription of war

as an instrument of national policy should be made to the end that the

peaceful and friendly relations now existing between their peoples may be

perpetuated:

“Convinced that all changes in the relations with one another should be

sought only by pacific means and be the result of peaceful and orderly

process and that any signatory Power which shall hereafter seek to pro

mote its national interests by resort to war should be denied the benefits

furnished by this treaty;

“Hopeful that encouraged by their example all the other nations of

the world will join in this humane endeavour and by adhering to the

present treaty as soon as it comes into force, bring their peoples within the

scope of its beneficent provisions, thus uniting the civilized nations of the

world in a common renunciation of war as an instrument of their national

policy:

“Have decided to conclude a treaty and for that purpose have ap-

pointed as their respective plenipotentiaries (here follows the list of plen-

ipotentiaries) who, having communicated to one another their full powers

found in good and due form have agreed upon the following articles:

“Article I.—First, solemnly declare in the name of their respective

peoples that they condemn recourse to war for the solution of international

controversies, and renounce it as an instrument of national policy in their

relations with one another

“Article II.—The High Contracting Parties agree that the settlement

or solution of all disputes of conflicts of whatever nature or of whatever

origin they may be, which may arise among them, shall never be sought

except by pacific means

ArticleParties

tracting III.—The

namedpresent treaty shall

in the preamble be ratifiedwith

in accordance by the

theirHigh Con-

respective

constitutional requirements, and shall take effect as between them as soon

as all their several instruments of ratification shall have been deposited

at Washington.

“This treaty shall, when it has come into effect as prescribed in the

preceding paragraph, remain open as long as may be necessary for adher-

ence by all the other Powers of the world. Every instrument evidencing

KEDLOGG PACT 37

the adherence of a Power shall be deposited at Washington and the treaty

shall immediately upon its deposit become effective as between the Power

thus adhering and the other Powers parties hereto.

“It shall be the duty of the Government of the United States to

furnish each Government named in the preamble and every Government

subsequently adhering to this treaty with a certified copy of the treaty and

of every instrument of ratification or adherence. It shall also be the duty

of the Government of the United States telegraphically to notify such

Governments immediately upon the deposit with it of each instrument of

ratification cr adherence.

“In faith whereof the respective plenipotentiaries have signed this

treaty in the French and English languages, both texts having equal force,

and hereunto affixed their seals.

“Done at Paris the 27th day of August in the year one thousand nine

hundred and twenty-eight.”

The provisions regarding ratification and adherence are, as Your Ex-

cellency will observe, found in the third and last Article. That Article pro-

vides that the treaty shall take effect as soon as the ratifications of all 'he

Powers named in the preamble shall have been deposited in Washington and

that it shall be open to adherence by all the other Powers of the world, in-

struments evidencing such adherence to be deposited in Washington also. Any

Power desiring to participate in the treaty may thus exercise the right to

adhere thereto and my Government will be happy to receive at any time

appropriate notices of adherence from those Governments wishing to contribute

to the success of this new movement for world peace by bringing their peoples

within its beneficent scope. It will be noted, in this connection that, the treaty

expressly provides that when it has once come into force it shall take effect

immediately between an adhering Power and the other Parties thereto, and

it is therefore 'dear that any Government adhering promptly will fully share

in the benefits of the treaty at the very moment it comes into effect.

I shall shortly transmit for Your Excellency’s convenient reference a

printed pamphlet containing the text in translation of M. Briand’s original

proposal to my Government of June 20, 1027, and the complete record of the

subsequent diplomatic correspondence on the subject of a multilateral treaty

for the renunciation of war. I shall also transmit, as soon as received from

my Government, a certified copy of the signed treaty.

I avail myself of this opportunity to extend to Your Excellency the

renewed assurance of my highest consideration.

-38 EXTRATERRITORIALITY

“The ideals which are embodied in this treaty of extraordinary significance

are the foundation on which the national life of the Chinese people is con-

structed and I wish, therefore, immediately to avail myself of this opportunity

to inform you that this impressive movement for the perpetuation of universal

peace and for the advancement of world civilization, aroused our sympathetic

interest from the very beginning and that in its present form as a definitive

treaty, my Government has decided to adhere to it without delay.

The Chinese Government and people feel deeply confident that the inter-

dependence of the different nations of the world is making it increasingly

manifest to all thinking minds that the renunciation of war and a frank

avowal of the need of friendly relations is the only means to save civilization

from the danger of destruction. We are, indeed, brought before the supreme

test whether, after those painful experiences of a few years ago which still

linger in our memory, we are not yet convinced of the absolute necessity of

a real spirit of mutual co-operation to guide us in our national policies to-

wards one another. It is therefore a source of profound satisfaction to see

that this action of momentous importance, so ably sponsored by the United

States of America, is receiving universal response.

As you are aware, the whole conception of life among our people centres

round the ideal of harmony. It is indeed difficult, if not impossible, to find

in all our thinkers a view of life which justifies conflict in any form as the

basis of a national policy, and I venture to think that it is this idea of

harmony and peace which accounts for the stability of our civilization and

the extraordinary length of our history. The present treaty to renounce

war is, in fact, a vindication of the teachings of our revered ancestors, and

especially as these teachings, which have been amplified by our late leader,

Dr. (Sun Yat-sen, so clearly embodied in such noble principles as Universal

Justice and The Brotherhood of Nations, are also at the present moment being

applied in the building up of a new China, the Chinese people are prepared

to join with America and the other signatory Powers with more than the

usual enthusiasm in endeavouring to attain the noble ends of peace.

We are deeply sensible, however, that in order to make war really im-

possible, it is necessary to eliminate all causes which are likely to give rise

to any international dispute, and rigidly to uphold the principle of equality

and mutual respect for territorial sovereignty among all nations. My Gov-

ernment, therefore, firmly believes that all the signatory Powers will abide by

the spirit of the present treaty and remove, at the earliest opportunity, all

of China’s unequal treaties and encroachments upon her sovereignty, as for

instance, the stationing of large numbers of alien troops on her soil. For it

is clear that a free and independent China is one of the most vital factors,

whereby permanent world peace may be promoted and strengthened.

I avail myself of this opportunity to extend to you the assurance of my

highest consideration.

EXTRATERRITORIALITY.

On April 27, 1029, the Minister for Foreign Affairs addressed Notes to

the British, American, Brazilian, Dutch, French and Norwegian Envoys,

urging the early abolition of extraterritoriality. The Notes were similar in

wording, those addressed to the British, American and French Ministers being

identical.

EXTRATERRITORIALITY

The , text of the Notes to the British, American and French Ministers is

as follows: —

Ministry of Foreign Affairs,

Nanking.

April 27,19129.

Your Excellency:

I have the honour to recall to Your Excellency that the Chinese Govern-

ment, through its representatives, had had occasion to express at the Paris

Peace Conference its strong desire for the removal of limitations on China’s

jurisdictional sovereignty imposed upon her by the old treaty concluded between

China and the foreign Powers and that the Chinese fDelegation emphatically

reiterated the same desire at the Washington Conference, which placed cn

record its sympathetic disposition towards furthering the aspiration of China

for the removal of restrictions on her political, jurisdictional and administra-

tive freedom of action.

With the unification of China and the establishment upon a firm founda-,

tion of the National Government, a new era has been happily inaugurated

in the relations between our two countries through the conclusion of the recent

Tariff Treaty, and it is to b® confidently hoped that the material well-being

of our two countries will henceforth be greatly enhanced. But it is the belief

and the conviction of the Chinese Government that the promotion of such

material well-being will be accelerated by a readjustment of the relations be-

tween bur Wo countries on a basis of friendly equality in matters of juris-

diction, and if Your Excellency’s Govemment could see its way to meet the

wishes of the Chinese Government and people in this regard, it is certain

that another obstacle to the full and frank co-operation, in trade or other-

wise, between the Chinese people and foreign nationals in this country

would be happily removed and that the desire of the Chinese Government

for promoting to the fullest extent the material interests of all who choose

to associate themselves with our own people would find its early realization.

It goes .without saying that extraterritoriality in China is a legacy of

the old regime, which has not only ceased to be adaptable to the present-day

; conditions, but has become so detrimental to the smooth working of the judicial

and administrative machinery of China that her progress as a member of

the Family of Nations has been unnecessarily retarted. The inherent defects

i and inconveniences of ihe system of consular jurisdiction have been most

’ clearly pointed out by the Chinese Government on various occasions and also

by the jurists and publicists of other countries in their official utterances as

well as in their academic discussions. It is a matter for sincere regret that,

while many Governments which are playing an important role in interna-

tional affairs are eager and persistent in their endeavour to promote geniune

; friendship and harmony among nations, such anachronistic practices as only

tend to mar the friendly relations between the Chinese people and foreign

nationals should be allowed to exist at a time when justice and equity are

supposed to govern the relations of nations.

With the close contact between China and the foreign Powers, the assi-

milation of western legal conceptions by Chinese jurists and incorporation

of western legal principles in Chinese jurisprudence have proceeded very

rapidly. In addition to the numerous codes and laws now in force, the Civil

code and the Commercial code have reached the final stage of preparation

and will be ready for promulgation before January 1st, 1930. Courts and

prisons, along modern lines, have been established, and are being established,

throughout the whole country

As Your Excellency’s Government has always maintained a friendly atti-

measures for the removal of limitations on China’s sovereignity, I am happy

to express to Your Excellency, on behalf of the Chinese Government, the

desire of China to have the restrictions on her jurisdictional sovereignty re-

moved at the earliest possible date and confidently hope that Your Excellency’s

Government will take this desire of China into immediate and sympathetic

consideration and favour me with an early reply so that steps may be taken

to enable China, now unified and with a strong Central Government, to right-

fully assume jurisdiction over all nationals within her domain.

I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to Your Excellency the as-

surnce of my highest consideration.

Minister of Foreign Affairs.

THE AMERICAN REPLY.

Peking, Aug. 10. 1929.

Tiis Excellency

Dr. Chengtvng T. Wang,

Minister for Foreign Affairs,

Nanking

Excellency:

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of the Chinese Government’s

'Note of April 27th in which there is expressed the desire that the United

States should relinquish tiie further exercise of extraterritorial jurisdiction

over its citizens in China and the hope that the American Government will

take this desire into immediate and sympathetic consideration.

I am directed by my Government to state that it is prepared to give

sympathetic consideration to the desires expressed by the Chinese Govern-

ment, giving at the same time, as it must, due consideration to the responsi-

bilities which rest upon the Government of the United States in connection

with the problem of jurisdiction over the persons and property of American

citizens in China. My Government, has, in fact, for some time past given

constant and sympathetic consideration to the national aspirations of the

people of China, and it has repeatedly given concrete evidence of its desire

to promote the realization of these aspirations in so far as action of the

United States may contribute to that result. As long ago as the year 1903,

in Article 15 of the Treaty concluded in that year between the United States

and China, the American Government agreed that it would be prepared to

relinquish the jurisdiction which it exercised over its nationals in China “when

satisfied that the state of the Chinese laws, the arrangements for their ad-

ministration, and other considerations warrant it in so doing.” As recently

as last year, the American Government gave very definite evidence of its

desire to promote the realization of China’s aspirations by concluding with

the Government of China, on July 23, 1928, a Treaty by which the two countries

agreed to incancellation

authority reference toof Customs

provisions

dutiesin onearlier

goodstreaties

importedwhereby China’s

into China by

American nationals had been restricted.

The exercise by the United States of jurisdiction over its citizens in

China had its genesis in an early agreement that, because of differences be

tween the customs of the two countries and peoples, and differences between

EXTRATERRITORIAiLIT’S 41

! their judicial systems, it would be wise to place upon the American Govern-

ment the duty of extending to American nationals in China the restraints and

the benefits of the system of jurisprudence to which they and their fellow

nationals were accustomed in the United States.

My Government deems it proper at this point to remind the Governmeut

of China that this system of American jurisdiction as administered by the

extraterritorial courts has never been extended by the United States beyond

the purposes to which it was by the Treaties originally limited. Those pur-

poses were the lawful control and protection of the persons and property of

American citizens who have established themselves in China in good faith in

accordance with the terms of the Treaties and with the knowledge and con

sent of China in the normal development of the commercial and cultural rela-

tions between the two countries. The United States has never sought to extend

its sovereignty over any portion of the territory of China.

Under the provisions of the Treaty of 1844, and other agreements concluded

thereafter which established that system, American citizens have lived and

have carried on their legitimate enterprises in China with benefit both to Hie

Chinese and tc themselves They ha\e engaped extensive’y in cultural and

in commercial enterprises involving large sums of money and extensive pro-

perties, and, as your Government has so graciously indicated in the Note

under acknowledgement, there has grown up and existed between the peoples

and the Governments of the two countries a friendship that has endured.

The American Government believe that this condition of affairs has been due

in large part to the manner in which the relations between the two peoples

have been regulated under the provisions of these agreements, the existence

of which has assured to the lives and property of American citizens in China

the security so necessary to their growth and development.

For the safety of life and property, the development and continuance of

legitimate and Deneficial business depend in the last resort, in China, as

elsewhere, upon the bertainty of protection from injury or confiscation by a

system of known law consistently interpreted and faithfully enforced by an

independent judiciary. Where such protection fails, the life and liberty of

the individual become subject to the constant threat of unlawful attack, while

his property suffers the ever-present danger of confiscation in whole or in

part through arbitrary administrative action. To exchange an assured and

tried system of administration of justice, and under which it is acknowledged

that life and property have been protected and commerce has grown and

prospered, for uncertainties in the absence of an adequate body of law and of

an experienced and independent judiciary would be fraught with danger in

both of the foregoing respects.

My Government has instructed me to say that the statement of the

Minister of Foreign Affairs of China, telegraphed to the press of the United

States on July 26th, to the effect that “all foreign interests in China purely

for legitimate purposes will be duly respected” has been noted by it with

pleasure as indicating that the Government of China has not failed to appre-

ciate the value to its foreign relations of the factors above mentioned. My

Government bids me add that it is therefore persuaded that the Government

of China will concur in its belief based as it is upon the facts set forth in

succeeding paragraphs, that the sudden abolition of the system of protection

by its extraterritorial courts in the face of conditions prevailing in China

to-day would in effect expose the property of American citizens to danger of

unlawful seizure and place in jeopardy the liberty of the persons of American

citizens.

The Chinese Government has, on several occasions during recent years,

expressed the desire that the Powers relinquish the exercise of extraterritorial

jurisdiction over their citizens In the Note under acknowledgment reference

is made to the position taken at the Washington Conference. It will be re-

called that, in pursuance of the resolution adopted at that Conference, there

was created a Commission to inquire into the present practice of extraterri-

42 EXTRATERR [TORIAEITY

torial jurisdiction in China and into the laws and the judicial system and the

methods of judicial administration of China, and that, under date of Sept

ember 16, 1926, that Commission made its report. This report contained an

account of the conditions then prevailing in the judicial system of China, as

well as a number of recommendations carefully suggested as indicating the ,

changes and improvements which would be necessary before there would be

adequately developed a system of known law and an independent judiciary 1

capable of justly controlling and protecting the lives and property of the

citizens of foreign countries doing business in China. Your Government will

recall that the Commission on Extraterritoriality which made these recom-

mendations was composed of representatives from thirteen countries including

both China and the United States and that its recommendations thoughtfully '

and reasonably conceived were unanimously adopted and were signed by all

of the Commissioners.

Because of its friendship for the Chinese people and its desire, to which

allusion has been already made, to relinquish as soon as possible extraterri-

torial jurisdiction over its own citizens in China, my Government has followed

with attentive consideration this entire subject, including particularly the

progress which has been made in carrying out its recommendations since the

rendition of this report.

It fully appreciates the efforts which are being made in China to assimilate

those western judical principles to which your Government has referred in

its Note, but it would be lacking in sincerity and candour, as well as disre-

gardful of its obligations towards its own nationals, if it did not frankly point

out that the recommendations aforesaid have not been substantially carried out

and that there does not exist in China to-day a system of independent Chinese

courts free from extraneous influence which is capable of adequately doing

justice between Chinese and foreign litigants. My Government believes that

not until these recommendations are fulfilled in far greater measure than is

the case to-day will it be possible for American citizens safely to live and do

business in China and for their property adequately to be protected without

the intervention of the consular courts.

In conclusion, my Government has directed me to state that it observes

with attentive and sympathetic interest the changes which are taking place

in China. Animated as it is by the most friendly motives and wishing ss

far as lies within Government power to be helpful, the American Government

would be ready, if the suggestion should meet with the approval of the Chinese

Government, to participate in negotiations which would have as their object

the devising of a method for the gradual relinquishment of extraterritorial

rights, either as to designated territorial areas, or as to particular kinds of

jurisdiction, or as to both, provided, that such gradual relinquishment pro

ceeds at the same time as steps are taken and improvements are achieved by

the Chinese Government in the enactment and effective enforcement of laws

based on modern concepts of jurisprudence.

I avail myself of this opportunity to extend to Your Excellency the re-

newed assurance of my highest consideration.

BRITISH REPLY.

British Legation, Peking,

at Peitaiho,

10th August, 1929.

Sir,

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your Note of April 27th

in which you inform me of the desire of the National Government of the Re-

public of China that the restrictions imposed on the jurisdictional sovereignty

of China by the system of extraterritoriality now in force should be removed

at the earliest possible date with a view to the assumption of jurisdiction by

China over all nationals in her domain.

EXTRATERRITOKIALITY 43

2. I have communicated the contents of your letter to my Government

and I am now instructed to transmit to you a reply in the following sense:

3. Animated by the friendly feelings which they have always entertained

towards the Government and people of China His Majesty’s Government have

S' given their sympathetic consideration to the request of the Chinese Government

ll relating to the abolition of extraterritorial jurisdiction in China.

The high importance of this subject in its bearing both on the political

fe development of China and the future relations between China and Great

aspect. inIn which

particular a just system

the present appreciation of the reasons came

of extraterritoriality "for which and the

p seems essential to a consideration of the proper method for dealing with the

+ : _ problem.

4. The system of extraterritoriality in force in China has its root deep

|| down in the past. For thousands of years before science had improved com-

munications, the Chinese people were secluded from the rest of the world by

P deserts and the ocean and they developed a civilisation and a policy peculiar

1 to themselves. A wide gulf was thus fixed between Europe and America on

g the one hand and China on the other.

5. In particular the conception of international relations as being inter-

B course between equal and independent states—a conception which was woven

P into the very texture of the political ideas of the nations of the West—was

■ entirely alien to Chinese modes of thought When traders of the West first

1 found their way to the coast of China, the Chinese Government found it diffi-

■ cult to allow them freely to enter into their country and mingle with their

I people nor did they recognise that the nations to which they belonged were

B the equals of China. These traders* were therefore confined to a small section

■ of a single city in one corner of the Empire and while on the one hand they

■ .were subjected to many disabilities and to grave humiliations, on the other

K hand, by a species of amorphous and unregulated extraterritoriality, which

■ was the natural outcome of these conditions, the responsibility of managing

K their own affairs and maintaining order amongst themselves was in some

■ measure left to their own initiative.

6. Relations continued for many years upon this insecure and unsatisfac-

B tory footing. Friction was often dangerously intense and conflicts not infre-

B quently arose, generally out of demands that some innocent person should be

I surrendered for execution to expirate perhaps an accidental homicide or that

i foreign authority should assume the responsibility for enforcing the revenue

laws of China.

il. The object of the first treaties was to secure recognition by China of

Great Britain’s equality with herself and to define and regulate the extrater-

ritorial status of British subjects. Relations between the two countries having

■ thus been placed on a footing of equality and mutual respect, Great Britain

was content that her nationals should continue to bear those responsibilities

I' and to labour under those disabilities which respect for the sovereignty of

| China entailed upon them. Conditions did not permit the general opening of

the Treaty

of Commerce between Great Britain and China signed in that year, His

Majesty’s Government stated their readiness to relinquish their extraterritorial

rights when they were satisfied that the state of Chinese laws the arrangements

for their administration and other considerations warranted them in so doing.

They have since watched with appreciation the progress which China has

made in the assimilation of western legal principals to which reference is made

44 EXTRATERRITORIAiLITY

in your Note under reply and they have observed with deep interest the facts

set out and recommendations

traterritoriality made in the report of the Commission on Ex-

in the jear 1926.

9. More recently in the declaration which they published in (December

1926 and the proposals which they made to the Chinese authorities in January

1927 His Majesty’s Government have given concrete evidence of their desire to

meet in a spirit of friendship and sympathy the legitimate aspirations of the

Chinese people. They have already travelled some distance along the road

marked out in those documents and they are willing to examine in collabora-

tion with the Chinese Government the whole problem of extraterritorial juris-

diction with a view to ascertaining what further steps in the same direction

it may be possible to take at the present time.

10. His Majesty’s Government would however observe that the promulga-

tion of codes embodying Western legal principles represents only one portion

of the task to be accomplished before it would be safe to abandon in their

entirety the special arrangements which have hitherto regulated the residence

of foreigners in 'China. In order that those reforms should become a living

reality it appears to His Majesty’s Government to be necessary that Western

legal principles should be understood and be found acceptable by the people at

large, no less than by their rulers, and that the Courts which administer these

laws should be free from interference and dictation at the hands, not only of

military chiefs, but of groups and associations who either set up arbitrary

and illegal tribunals of their own or attempt to use legal courts for the fur-

therance of political objects rather than for the administration of equal justice

between Chinese and Chinese and between Chinese and foreigners. (Not until

these conditions are fulfilled in a far greater measure than appears to be the

case to-day will it be practicable for British merchants to reside, trade and

which it would be impossible to give effect in practice. Any attempt prema-

turely to accord such privileges would not only be of no benefit to British mer-

chants but might involve the Government and people of China in political

and economic difficulties

11. So long as these conditions subsist there appears to be no practicable

alternative to maintaining though perhaps in a modified form the Treaty Port

system that has served for nearly a century to regulate intercourse between

China and British subjects with her domain. Some system of extraterri-

toriality is the natural corollary for the maintenance of the Treaty Port sys-

tem and the problem as it present itself to His Majesty’s Government at the

present moment is to discover what further modifications in that system beyond

those already made and alluded to above it would be desirable and practicable

to effect.

12. His Majesty’s Government await further proposals from the National

Government as to the procedure now to be adopted for examining this question

and they instruct me to assure Your Excellency that they will continue to

maintain towards any such proposals the same friendly and helpful attitude

EXTRATERRITORIALITY 45

FRENCH REPLY.

The following is the English translation of the reply of the French Gov-

ernment to China’s Note concerning the abolition of extraterritoriality:

August 10, 1929.

Monsieur le Ministre,

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of the note dated April 27

in which you express the hope that the French Government would take into

immediate and favourable consideration the desire of the Chinese Government

to be enabled to exercise its jurisdiction over all nationals residing in China.

Having taken note of this communication which has been the object of its

careful attention, the French Government authorizes me to recall to Your Ex-

cellency that during the Washington Conference it gave voluntarily its approval

to the resolution of December 10, 1921, according to the terms of which an

international Commission was established to study the question of extraterri-

toriality in China.

This Commission, in its report of September 16, 1926, made recommenda-

tions, the application of which, might, in its judgment, permit the Powers

to relinquish extraterritoriality.

Taking into consideration the facts stated by the said Commission, the

French Government considers that, in order to realize the conditions favourable

for the renunciation of extraterritorial rights enjoyed by its nationals in

virtue of the treaty of 1858, it is indispensable that the Chinese Government

proceed to the reform of its laws, its judicial institutions and its method

of judicial administration, in conformity with the recommendations of the

Commission, recommendations to which the Chinese Delegate has given his

approval. It is when these reforms have been carried out and effectively put

into practice that the rights of residence, of property owning and trade

throughout the whole of China, the necessary counterpart of the relinquishment

of extraterritoriality, might constitute for the French nationals a real ad-

vantage equivalent to that which the Chinese enjoy in France.

The French Government, animated by the friendly feelings which it was

always cherished towards the Chinese people and of which another proof was

given last year by the signing of the Tariff Autonomy Treaty, has no doubt

that the Chinese Government will make every effort to fulfill the conditions

necessary to the examination of the problem of extraterritoriality.

It is in this spirit that the French Government, faithful to its liberal

traditions, has authorized me to give you assurance that it will continue to

take an active interest in the reforms to that end which remain to be aceoim

plished and that it will carefully note all the facts which tend to show \.hat

these reforms are effectively carried out in the administration and judicial

practice of the Government authorities and the people of China.

On the other hand, the French Government will not fail to avail itself

of the opportunities as they arise to co-operate profitably with Chinese authori-

ties in the endeavour to hasten a state of affairs which would permit it to

modify with the necessary guarantees the present jurisdictional status of the

French nationals in China.

THE NETHERLANDS’ REPLY.

The following is the English translation of the reply of the Netherlands

Covernment to China’s note concerning the abolition of extraterritoriality.

Legation des Pays-Bas,

Peking, Aug. 10. 1929.

Monsieur le Ministre,

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of Your Excellency’s Note of

April 27 last in which the Chipese Government expresses the hope that Her

Majesty’s Government would take into sympathetic consideration the desire

EXTRATERRITORIAlLITY

of China to come to an agreement by which the limitation on China’s jurisdic-

tional sovereignty will be removed and which will enable the Chinese Govern-

ment to assume jurisdiction over all nationals within its domain.

Your Excellency expressed the conviction that the reciprocal advantages

resulting from the tariff convention recently concluded between our two

countries would be considerably enhanced if the relations between our two

countries were regulated on the basis of equality in matters of jurisdiction,

and that by the abolition of the system of consular jurisdiction an obstacle

would be removed for the full co-operation between the Chinese people and

foreign nationals especially in commercial matters; the desire of the Chinese

Government for promotig the material interests of all who choose to associate

themselves with the Chinese people would in that case find its early realization.

Her Majesty’s Government has given this request its most careful consi-

deration, and now instructs me to inform Your Excellency that just as it

was happy to join the other powers in bringing about the Resolution adopted

on Oecember 10th 1921 by the Washington Conference on the (Limitation of

Armaments, which placed on record its sympathetic disposition towards China’s

aspiration, so it will be pleased to co-operte with these Powers and with

China for the realization and fulfilment of China’s desire with regard to the

question of jurisdiction.

It may here be recalled that with this end in view Her Majest’s Govern-

ment wholeheartedly participated in the work of the International Commission

which was instituted as a result of the above-mentioned Resolution and which

drew up a number of valuable recommendations for the benefit of the Chinese

Government. .

of what safeguards the Chinese judicial institutions offer with a view to their

independence gnd their immunity from interference by military and political

authorities.

I am desired by Her Majesty’s Government to assure with Excellency

of its unalterable sympathy towards China with regard to this question and

of its readiness when the introduction and the effective acceptance by the

country of modern institutions guaranteeing the administration of just laws

by an independent and unassailable judiciary will have rendered useful re-

forms possible in the matter of jurisdiction over Netherlands nationals, to

act in unison with the Governments of the Powers who were represented at the

Conference of Washington with the object object of examining the possibility

of meeting the aspiration to which the Chinese Delegation at the said Con-

ference gave expression and which is reiterated in Your Excellency’s Note

under reply.

NORWEGIAN REPLY.

The following is the English translation of the reply of the Norwegian

| Government to China’s Note concerning the abolition of extraterritoriality.

Legation de Norvege

Peking, Aug. 14, 19i29.

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of Your Excellency’s note

of April 27 expressing on behalf of the Chinese Government the desire of

!? 'China to have the restriction on her jurisdictional sovereignty removed and

the hope that the Norwegian Government will take this desire into immediate

\ and sympathetic consideration in order to enable China to assume jurisdiction

i over all nationals within her domain

Having communicated the contents of the Note to my Government I am

now instructed to recall to Your Excellency that the Norwegian Government

has already, in concluding, on November 12 last year, a new treaty with the

Chinese Government, given concrete evidence of the friendly feeling which

| Norway has always entertained towards China and the Chinese people.

My Government now desires me to reiterate, the assurance, already ex-

pressed on that occasion, that the same friendly feelings will not be found to

have changed when the question of revising other clauses of the treaty of

= 1847 between Norway and China is brought up for discussion.

As to the question of removing the restrictions pn China’s jurisdictional

sovereignty (by relinquishing the consular jurisdiction) this question was

Already given sympathetic consideration when, in 1926, a Norwegian delegate

joined the international Commission to inquire into extraterritorial jurisdic-

tion in China.

I may add that the administration of the Norwegian jurisdiction in China

CHINESE REPLY TO AMERICA.

Nanking, September 5, 1929.

Monsieur le Ministre:

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your Excellency’s Note

; -of August 10th in which you are good enough to transmit to me the views

of your Government in regard to the request of the Chinese Government, con-

tained in my Note of April 27, for the removal of restrictions on China’s juris-

dictional sovereignty.

' The Chinese

ernment Government

American Gov-

cc>n-

| sideration

has repeatedly given concrete evidence of its desire to promote theandrealisation

to the national aspirations of the people of China that it

of those aspirations. The traditional friendship between China and America

has not only a common material basis, but is also deeply rooted in the idealism

which is common to the Chinese and the American people. The American peo-

ple, with their love of liberty, their zeal for justice, their desire to further

the advance of civilisation and their sympathy for the aspirations of nations

in their spiritual re-birth all of which reveal unmistakably the noble attitude

of the American mind, have aroused the admiration and won the love of the

Chinese people. This idealism has manifested itself in the abolition of slavery,

the growth of democracy, and the endeavour to establish a reign of universal

EXTRATEKHITORlAlLITY

peace, which has given a new hope to the human race. It is this idealism

that accounts for the steadfastness of the American Government and people

in their friendship for China through all the vicissitudes of her fortunes. It

is again this idealism that has prompted th American Government to give

sympathetic consideration to the desire of thee Chinese Government in connec-

tion with the question of jurisdiction and to decide to enter into negotiations-

for the devising of a method leading to the eventual abolition of Extraterri-

torial privileges.

It seems to me, however, from a careful consideration of your Note that

the America Government is not yet free from misgivings as to the safety of

American lives and property after the abolition of Extraterritoriality. The

American Government is undoubtedly aware of the fact that the liberty of

American citizens and the security of their property rights do not so much

depend upon the continued exercise of jurisdiction by their own Consular

Courts, as upon the timely removal of hindrances to the free and full assertion

of China’s sovereign rights. Extraterritorial privileges, while apparentjy bene-

ficial to foreigners in China in giving the impression of security and safety,

have really hadin the

by producing the latter

most injurious

the feelingeffect on their relations

of humiliation withoftheresentment

and a sense Chinese

which have always caused mutual suspicion and the consequent loss of mutual

confidence, thus undermining the very foundations of friendly relations and

not infrequently giving rise to complications and conflicts. Such conflicts and

duplications could be easily avoided were there none of those special privileges.

In this connexion, it may be pointed out that towards nationals of certain

countries who have lost their extraterritorial privileges and have submitted to

the jurisdiction of China, the Chinese people enterian the most friendly feel-

ings and repose in them great confidence, a valuable asset, it will be admitted,

in the intercourse, commercial or otherwise, of any two peoples. Such marked

difference in the relations between Chinese and nationals of Extraterritorial

Powers on the one hand and those between the Chinese and the nationals of

non-extraterritorial Powers on the other will, as long as the extraterritorial

system is retained, become more and more pronounced, and much as the Chinese

Government may try to discountenance this difference of attitude on the part

of its citizens, it will not be within its powers to control the natural expression

of their fee-lings.

In the event, however, of American citizens relinquishing their Extraterri-

torial privileges, they may rest assured that they will enjoy the same confidence

of the Chinese people and hence the same material benefits as the nationals of

non-extraterritorial Powers. Moreover, the Chinese Government will continue

to exercise, in accordance with the well established principle of international

law, due diligence in preventing any possible violations of the private rights

of American citizens and perform its duty, in the fullest possible measure', in

all matters relating to the redress of wrongs.

In your Note under acknowledgment reference is made to the report of

the Commission on Extraterritoriality submitted to the interested Governments

pursuant to a resolution adopted at the Washington Conference. The American

Government must be aware of the fact that since the completion of that re-

port, conditions in China have greatly changed, and in particular both the poli-

tical and judicial systems have assumed a new aspect. To pass judgment on the

present state of law and judicial administration in China in the light of

what is contained in the report of 1926 is doing no justice to the steadfast

policy of the National Government.

At this point, it may be worth while to recall the circumstances under

which the American Government renounced its rights under the Capitulations

with Turkey. The Chinese judicial system, it will be admitted, does not

suffer the least in comparison with that of Turkey at the time of the abolition

of the Capitulations. And yet the American Government, realising that the

Turkish people, with legitimate aspirations and under the guidance of a new

and strong Government, could accomplish great things in a short space of

EXTRATERRITORIALITY

time, had the wisdom and foresight to relinquish its special pri-

vileges similar to those enjoyed hitherto by its nationals in China, and has

had the satisfaction to find that the life and property of American citizens

in Turkey have subsequently received full and adequate protection. The

American Government, which did full justice to the Turkish people in the

matter of jurisdiction without any apprehension and with satisfactory results,

will no doubt solve the problem of Extraterritoriality in China in the same

friendly and sympathetic spirit.

It has been perhaps brought to the knowledge of the American Govern-

ment that the Chinese Government has recently concluded treaties with several

other Powers which have agreed to relinquish Extraterritoriality on January

1, 1930. If it had appeared to the Government of those Powers, as it appears

to the American Government, that there did not yet exist in this country

a judiciary capable of rendering justice to their nationals and a body of laws

adequate to give protection to their lives and property, they would certainly

have refused to give up their privileged position and enter into the engage-

ments they have made. Now that many of the Powers which participated in

the discussions of Extraterritoriality at the Washington Conference have al-

ready shown by an overt act that that system has outlived its usefulness and

should be replaced by one in harmony with the actual state of things, there

is no reason why the United States, upon which fell the honour of initiating

the labours of that Conference, should not act in unison with those Powers,

thus removing the difficulties which the Chinese Government might otherwise

encounter in extending jurisdiction over all foreign nationals.

It is the hope of the Chinese Government that whatever misgivings and

apprehensions the American Government may have in considering the subject

under discussion will be now dispelled, and that, in the further examination

of this subject, it will be actuated by much weighter considerations, namely,

the enhancement of friendship between the Chinese and the American people,

and hence the promotion of the material interests of both. It is with this last

object in view that the Chinese Government now requests the American Gov-

ernment to enter into immediate discussions with the authorised representative

of the Chinese Government for making the necessary arrangements whereby

Extraterritoriality in China will be abolished to the mutual satisfaction of

both Governments.

CHINESE REPLY TO FRANCE.

Nanking, September 7, 1929.

Monsieur le Ministre,

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of Your Excellency's Note

of August 10th in which you are good enough to transmit to me the views of

your Government in regard to the request of the Chinese Government, con-

tained in my Note of April 27th for the removal of restrictions on China’s

jurisdictional Government.

The Chinese Government is pleaded to be reminded by the French Govern-

ment that it gave another proof of the friendly feelings it always entertained

towards the Chinese people by signing the Tariff Autonomy Treaty last year.

The friendship between China and France rests not only on common material

interests, but also on close cultural ties and the ideals which have been an

unfailing source of inspiration both to the Chinese and the French people in

their political evolution. It is therefore with pleasure that the Chinese

Government takes note of the sympathetic response of the French Government

to the desire of China expressed in my last Note.

50 EXTRATERRITORIALITY

In your Note under acknowledgment, however, reference is made to the

Report of the Commission on Extraterritoriality submitted to the interested

Governments, pursuant to a resolution adopted at the Washington Conference.

The French Government is undoubtedly aware of the fact that since the

completion of that report, conditions in China have greatly changed, and,

in particular, both the political and judicial systems have assumed a new

aspect. To pass judgment on the present state of laws and judicial administra-

tion in China in the light of what is contained in the Report of 1926 is doing

no justice to the steadfast policy of the National Government.

Furthermore, it may be worth while to recall the circumstances under

which the French Government renounced its rights under the Capitulations

with Turkey. The Chinese judicial system, it will be admitted, does not suffer

the least in comparison with that of Turkey at the time of the abolition

of the Capitulations. And yet the French Government, realizing that the

Turkish people with legitimate aspirations and under the guidance of a new

and strong Government could accomplish great things in a short space of

time, had the wisdom and foresight to relinquish its special privileges similar

to those enjoyed hitherto by its nationals in China and has had the satisfaction

to find that the life and property of French citizens in Turkey have subsequently

received full and adequate protection. The French Government which did

full justice to the Turkish people in the matter of jurisdiction without any

apprehensions and with satisfactory results will no doubt solve the problem of

Extraterritoriality in China in the same friendly and sympathetic spirit.

It has been perhaps brought to the knowledge of the French Government

that the Chinese Government has recently concluded treaties with several other

Powers which have agreed to relinquish extraterritorial privileges on January

1st, 1930. If it had appeared to the Governments of those Powers, as it appears

to the French Government, that there did not yet exist in this country a

judiciary capable of rendering justice to their nationals and a body of laws

adequate to give protection to their lives and property, they would certainly

have refused to give up their privileged position and enter into the engage-

ments they have made. Now that many of the Powers which participated in

the discussions of Extraterritoriality of the Washington Conference have

already shown by an overt act that that system has outlived its usefulness and

should be replaced by one in harmony with the actual state of things, there is

no reason whyof the

thus removing the difficulty which the Chinese Government might otherwise en-

counter in extending jurisdiction over all foreign nationals.

It is the hope of the Chinese Government that whatever misgiving and

apprehensions the French Government may have in considering the subject un-

der discussion will be now dispelled, and that, in the further examination

of this subject, it will be actuated by much weightier considerations, namely

the enhancement of friendship between the Chinese and the French people,

and hence the promotion of the material interests of both. It is with this

last object in view that the Chinese Government now requests the French

Government to enter into immediate discussions with the authorised repre-

sentative of the Chinese Government for making the necessary arrangements

whereby Extraterritoriality in China will be abolished to the mutual satis-

faction of both Governments.

I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to Your Excellency the assur-

ance of my highest consideration.

THE UNITED STATES COUET EOH CHINA

(Chapter 3934, Prescribing the Jurisdiction of the Court)

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States

of America in Congress Assembled, That a Court is hereby established, to be called

the United States Court for China, which shall have exclusive jurisdiction in all

cases and judicial proceedings whereof jurisdiction may now be exercised by United

States Consuls and Ministers by law and by virtue of treaties between the United

States and China, except in so far as the said jurisdiction is qualified by Section 2

of this Act. The said Court shall hold sessions at Shanghai, China, and shall also

hold sessions at the cities of Canton, Tientsin, and Hankow at stated periods, the

dates of such sessions at each city to be announced in such manner as the Court shall

direct, and a session of the Court shall be held in each of these cities at least once

annually. It shall be-within the power of the judge, upon due notice to the parties

in litigation, to open and hold Court for the hearing of a special cause at any place

permitted by the treaties, and where there is a United States Consulate, when, in

his judgment, it shall be required by the convenience of witnesses, or by some public

interest. The place of sitting of the Court shall be in the United States Consulate

at each of the cities, respectively.

That the seal of the said United States Court for China shall be the arms of

the United States, engraved on a circular piece of steel of the size of a half dollar,

with these words on the margin, “ The Seal of the United States Court for China.”

The seal of said Court shall be provided at the expense of the United States.

All writs and processes issuing from the said Court, and all transcripts, records,

copies, jurats, acknowledgments, and other papers requiring certification or to be

under seal, may be authenticated by said seal, and shall be signed by the clerk of

said Court. All processes issued from the said Court shall bear test from the day

of such issue.

Sec. 2.—The Consuls of the United States in the cities of China to which they

are respectively accredited shall have the same jurisdiction as they now possess in

civil cases where the sum or value of the property involved in the controversy does

not exceed five hundred dollars United States money, and in criminal cases where the

punishment for the offence charged cannot exceed by law one hundred dollars’ fine

or sixty days’ imprisonment, or both, and shall have power to arrest, examine, and

discharge accused persons or commit them to the said Court. From all final judg-

ments of the Consular Court either party shall have the right of appeal to the United

States Court for China: Provided, Also, That appeal may be taken to the United

States Court for China from any final judgment of the Consular Courts of the United

States in Korea so long as the rights of extra-territoriality shall obtain in favour of

the United States. The said United States Court for China shall have and exercise

supervisory control over the discharge by Consuls and Vice-Consuls of the duties

prescribed by the laws of the United States relating to the estates of decedents in

China. Within sixty days after the death in China of any citizen of the United

States, or any citizen of any territory belonging to the United States, the Consul or

Vice-Consul whose duty it becomes to take possession of the effects of such deceased

person under the laws of the United States shall file with the clerk of said Court a

THE UNITED STATES COUKT FOR CHINA 87

sworn inventory of such effects, and shall, as additional effects come from time to

time into his possession, immediately file a supplemental inventory or inventories of

the same. He shall also file with the clerk of said Court within said sixty days a

schedule under oath of the debts of said decedent, so far as known, and a schedule

or statement of all additional debts thereafter discovered. Such Consul or Vice-

Consul shall pay no claims against the estate without the written approval of the

judge of said Court, nor shall he make sale of any of the assets of said estate with-

out first reporting the same to said judge and obtaining a written approval of said

sale, and he shall likewise within ten days after any such sale report the fact of such

sale to said Court, and the amount derived therefrom. The said judge shall have

power to require at any time reports from Consuls or Vice-Consuls in respect of all

their acts and doings relating to the estate of any such deceased person. The said

Court shall have power to require, where it may be necessary, a special bond for the

faithful performance of his duty to be given by any Consul or Vice-Consul into

whose possession Hie estate of any such deceased citizen shall have come in such

amount and with such sureties as may be deemed necessary, and for failure to give

such bond when required, or for failure to properly perform his duties in the

premises, the Court may appoint some other person to take charge of said estate,

such person having first given bond as aforesaid. A record shall be kept by the

clerk of said Court of all proceedings in respect of any such estate under the

provisions hereof.

Sec. 3.—That appeals shall lie from all final judgments or decrees of said Court

to the United States Circuit Court of Appeals of the ninth judicial circuit, and thence

appeals and writs of error may be taken from the judgments or decrees of the said

Circuit Court of Appeals to the Supreme Court of the United States in the same class

of cases as those in which appeals and writs of error are permitted to judgments of

said Court of Appeals in cases coming from District and Circuit Courts of the United

States. Said appeals or writs of error shall be regulated by the procedure govern-

ing appeals within the United States from the District Courts to the Circuit Courts of

Appeal, and from the Circuit Courts of Appeal to the Supreme Court of the United

States, respectively, so far as the same shall be applicable; and said Courts are here-

by empowered to hear and determine appeals and writs of error so taken.

Sec. 4.—The jurisdiction of said United States Court, boh original and not

appeal, in civil and criminal matters, and also the jurisdiction of the Consular Courts

in China, shall in all cases be exercised in conformity with said treaties and the laws

of the United States now in force in reference to the American Consular Courts in

China, and all judgments and decisions of said Consular Courts, and all decisions,

judgments, and decrees of said United States Court, shall be enforced in accordance

with said treaties and laws. But in all such cases when laws are deficient in the

provisions necessary to give jurisdiction or to furnish suitable remedies, the common

law and the law as established by the decisions of the Courts of the United States

shall be applied by said Court in its decisions and shall govern the same subject to

the terms of any treaties between the United States and China.

Sec. 5.—That the procedure of the said Court shall be in accordance, so far as

practicable, with the existing procedure prescribed for Consular Courts in China

in accordance with the Revised Statutes of the United States: Provided, however,

that the judge of the said United States Court for China shall have authority from

time to time to modify and supplement said rules of procedure. The provisions of

sections forty-one hundred and six and forty-one hundred and seven of the Revised

Statutes of the United States allowing Consuls in certain cases to summon associates

shall have no application to said Court.

Sec. 6.—There shall be a district attorney, a marshal, and a clerk of said Court

with authority possessed by the corresponding officers of the District Courts in the

United States as far as may be consistent with the conditions of the laws of the

United States and said treaties. The judge of said Court and the district attorney,

who shall be lawyers of good standing and experience, marshal, and clerk shall be

THE UNITED STATES COURT FOR CHINA

shall receive as salary, respectively, the sums of eight thousand dollars per annum

for said judge, four thousand dollars per annum for said district attorney, three

thousand dollars per annum for said marshal, and three thousand dollars per annum

for said clerk. The judge of the said Court and the district attorney shall, when

the sessions of the Court are held at ether cities than Shanghai, receive in addition

to their salaries their necessary expenses during such sessions not to exceed ten

dollars per day for the judge and five dollars per day for the district attorney.

Sec. 7.—The tenure of office of the judge of said Court shall be ten years, unless

sooner removed by the President for cause ; the tenure of office of the other officials

of the Court shall be at the pleasure of the President.

Sec. 8.—The marshal and the clerk of said Court shall be required to furnish

bond for the faithful performance of their duties, in sums and with sureties to be

fixed and approved by the judge of the Court. They shall each appoint, with the

written approval of said judge, deputies at Canton and Tientsin, who shall also be

required to furnish bonds for the faithful performance of their duties, which bonds

shall be subject, both as to form and sufficiency of the sureties, to the approval of

the said judge. Such deputies shall receive compensation at the rate of five dollars

for each day the sessions of the Court are held at their respective cities. The office

of marshal in China now existing in pursuance of section forty-one hundred and

eleven of the Revised Statutes is thereby abolished.

Sec. 9.—The tariff of fees of said officers of the Court shall be the same as the

tariff already fixed for the Consular Courts in China, subject to amendment from

time to time by order of the President, and all fees taxed and received shall be paid

into the Treasury of the United States.

Approved, June JO, 1906.

TOKYO

The capital of Japan is situated on Tokyo Bay, on the East coast of

Japan. The river Sumida runs through the city, the larger part lying to the

west of this waterway, while on the east lie the two wards named Honjo and

Fukagawa

Tokyo as viewed from the bay is a pleasant-looking city, being well situat-

ed undulating

square miles andground, and into

is divided possessing abundant foliage. The city covers 198

35 wards.

TOKYO 103

In 1603, when lyeyasu became Shogun, he made Yedo, as it was then

called his capital, and from that time, in spite of the earthquakes which

several times nearly destroyed it and the fires which ravaged it, the city con-

tinued to grow until it exceeded Kyoto, the ancient capital, in population and

init splendour. The transfer

Tokyo is one of the three cities in Japan which stands in a prefecture by

itself, with a Governor appointed by the Central Government. The city itself

is governed by a Mayor and a Municipality, which now has control over most

of the public utilities, including the water and electric supplies, and the

tramways. Of recent years the feudal aspect of Tokyo has almost entirely

disappeared, the streets having been widened so as to permit of modern traffic

conditions. Many fine buildings have also been erected, such as the Imperial

Theatre, Kabuki Theatre, the Imperial Hotel and large blocks of

business houses. Tokyo Central Station situated in the heart of the

business quarters, is now connected with all the main lines in Japan, thus

adding to the convenience of passengers.

A section well worth a visit is the public park or garden named Uyeno,

where formerly stood the magnificent temple founded and maintained by the

Shoguns, and which was destroyed by fire during the War of Restoration in

July, 1868. In Uyeno is also situated the fine Imperial Museum (Haku-butsu-

kwan), the Tokyo Gallery of Fine Arts, the Academy of Music and a small

Zoological Garden.

Undoubtedly the finest recent addition to the capital is the Meiji Shrine

dedicated to the Emperor Meiji (1868-1911), and its beautiful outer garden

which includes a fine stadium for athletic meetings and football matches, a

huge baseball ground, a swimming pool and an imiposing Meiji Art Gallery.

Among the places much resorted to by visitors is the ancient temple of

Kwannon, at Asakusa, not far from Uyeno, one of the most popular and most

frequented temples in Japan. At the right of the temple there is a fine old

Pagoda, and near it are two colossal stone statues. A new park was also

opened close to the temple about the same time as that of Uyeno. Thus,

with Shiba, in the southwest, where are to be seen some of the splendid

shrines of the Shoguns, among the chief glories of Tokyo, there are three

large public gardens within the city, in addition to the Meiji Shrine garden

mentioned above.

Tokyo does no direct foreign trade, all goods from abroad or coming

from abroad, being handled by lighters to and from Yokohama. Of late years

Tokyo has become the centre of a large industrial district. In addition to

the smaller industries that are carried on in the city itself, there are in the

immediate vicinity of the capital large cotton mills, iron foundries, and

machine shops which employ thousands of hands.

The districts of Honjo and Fukagawa form a distinct industrial portion

of the capital. Here is the centre of the lumber and other trades. This

quarter is connected with the rest of the city by ten splendid bridges all re-

built since tihe earthquake The biggest of them are called, commencing on

Many of the most famous educational institutions are situated in Tokyo;

In addition to the Imperial University, there is the celebrated Waseda

University, the Keio Gijuku, the Meiji Gakuin, the Aoyama Gakuin, and a

large number of technical, normal, pommercial and other colleges.

Tokyo was opened to foreign residence in 1870 and an area of land at

Tsukiji on the waterfront was set aside as a Foreign Settlement, which was

largely taken advantage of by Christian Missionary bodies. With the passing

YOKOHAMA

Yokohama is situated on the Bay of Tokyo, in lat. 35 deg. 26 min. II sec

N and long. 139 deg. 39 min. 20 sec., and is distant about 20 miles from

the capital, with which it is connected by several lines of steam and electric

railways. A very small fishing village when it was opened to foreign trade in

1859, its proximity to the capital quickly led to its development and it was

tor many years the leading port of Japan. The surrounding scenery

is hPly and pleasing, and on clear days the snow-crowned summit

and graceful outlines of Fuji-san, a volcanic mountain 12,370 feet

waterfront runs a good road called the Bund, on which stand a number of

imposing buildings, of which the principal ones are the Hongkong and

Shanghai Bank, the American Consulate, the Standard-Vacuum Oil Co.’s offices, the

: United Club and the New Grand Hotel. The reconstructed city includes many tine

examples of modern architecture, notably the Prefectural offices, rebuilt at a cost of

3 million yen, the Silk Conditioning House, the Customs House, General Post

Uffice, the British and American Consulates, Japanese and Foreign Banks

and office buildings. A line cricket and recreation club and a racecourse are

[situated about two miles from the Settlement. Three excellent golf links are

within a short distance of the city. A good boating and yachting club also

exist, providing facilities for deep-sea bathing. The railway station is well

designed and commodious. The town is in the enjoyment of an excellent

water supply, large waterworks having been completed in 1887. The municipal

pier accommodating the largest steamers, and 12 mooring wharves for large

ocean-going vessels, most of these wharves accommodating vessels of any size.

The Yokohama Dock Company has three dry docks of 628 ft., 489 ft., and 380

ft., docking length, 98 ft., 77 ft., and 76 ft. width of entrance, and 33 ft.,

26 ft. and 21 ft. of water on the blocks respectively, and a mooring basin of

600 ft. by 100 ft. by 25 ft.

In the very severe earthquake, which was followed by a huge conflagra-

tion, on September 1st, 1923, close on 30,000 people are known to have

perished. Another 3,569 were missing and believed to be dead, and 66,371

out of a total of 93,000. The shipping in harbour was placed in serious

jeopardy by the blazing oil from the oil-tanks on shore running into and

spreading over the water.

The population of Yokohama was about 777,500 in 1938 thus being the sixth

largest city in the Umpire.

Yokohama chiefly subsists on its foreign trade, especially the valuable

silk trade, which from the time of the opening of the country has always

from early times, becoming one of the centres of communication between

Eastern and Western ports of Japan. After the construction of Nagoya

railways, the City pf Nagoya, being in close proximity to Atsuta, has grown

rapidly in importance.

Not only is Nagoya Station an important intermediate station on the

Tokaido Main Bine, but it is also a terminus of the Kansai Line which goes

to Osaka, passing through Mie and Nara Prefectures, and of the Chuo Line

which running through Gifu, Nagano !'anid Yamanashi Prefectures

finally reaches Tokyo. It is thus one of the most important railway centres

in all Japan. Besides these lines there is direct connection between the

stations in the course of one year is approximately fifteen millions, while nearly

three million tons of goods are handled.

In addition to these Imperial Government Piailways, there are a number

of private electric railways operating radial lines from the city, putting it

into close connection with a large number of cities and towns in the neigh-

bourhood. Turning to' transportation within the city, there are 2,420 kilo-

not satisfactory,

so that great efforts are being made in connection with the work of city

planning to broaden and systematize them.

The street railway system, is owned and operated by the municipality :

it has 55.5 kilometres of track on the main streets, and carries a total of

66,761,162 passengers annually. This service is supplemented by the Tsukiji

Electric Railway and Shin-Mikawa Electric Railway. These private lines

make connections between the centre of the city and the outlying parts. Light

motor-buses are operated on all the principal streets at a uniform fare of six

sen.

There are 66 post and telegraph offices throughout the city and for wireless

messages, a despatching station at Yosami, and a receiving station at Yok-

kaichi, both towns near Nagoya, have recently been opened. These stations

are supervised and operated by the Nagoya Central Wireless Telegram Office,

134 NAGOYA

and at these stations communication is maintained with Germany, Poland,

France, and Great Britain. Telephones are a Government Monopoly in

Japan, and are extensively used.

With the

Era, the madeof inthe industry

exitended throughout

the Empire. As a distributing and collecting point Nagoya has become

known both at home and abroad, being placed just after Osaka and Tokyo.

In reviewing the movement of goods a number of years ago, it is noticeable

that most of the transportation was by land, and very little by water. But

since the opening of Nagoya Harbour to foreign commerce in 1907, the volume

of goods shipped by water has greatly increased.

In 1935 the total tonnage passing through the harbour was 2,050,627 tons,

while that handled by land amounted to about 3,713,399 tons.

From early times Nagoya has made remarkable progress, especially in

industrial arts, on account of low wages, and the diligence and special skill

in handicraft of the workers. Following the spirit of the times machinery

has been introduced and factories have largely taken the place of household

industries. The city is fortunate in having at its disposal an abundant

supply of electric power which is indispensable in modern industries. This

fact, together with the facilities for transportion on land and sea, has made

Nagoya the largest industrial centre in Japan next to Osaka.

yarns, knitted goods, siik yarns floss-silk, etc. The chemical industry comes

pumps, vehicles, clocks etc. Special industries include steel, castings,

bronze, coal-gas, etc.

In this part of Japan are a number of rivers which are capable of pro-

ducing an abundant supply of hydro-electric power. Thus, power can be had

in sufficient quantity for all needs, a fact which has contributed greatly to

the development of industries in Nagoya. At present the electric power

The port of Nagoya lies to the south-west within the city limits, and is

situated at the northern extremity of Ise Bay, which, opens to the south-west

and is located between thirty-five degrees and thirty-five degrees five minutes

North Latitude, and one hundred and thirty-six degrees forty minutes and

one hundred and thirty-six degrees fifty-three minutes East Longitude. As

Chita Peninsula stretches to the south-east, it is protected from the dreaded

typhoons which come from that direction, and the port receives little damage

from wind and wave. The heart of the city is closelv connected with the

port by the Horikawa, Shinhorikawa, and Nakagawa Canals, and the Rinko

Railway Line.

NAGOYA 136

The construction of Nagoya Hanbour began in 1896. Years ago the third

stage of the work was completed with an aggregate expenditure

of 15,490,000 yen. The area of the wharves is 1.52 square kilometres, with an

anchoring capacity of 96,000 tons for thirty-eight steamers of ten thousand

tons or less. At present the harbour can accommodate 40 vessels with a total

tonnage of 206,000 tons. But in order to meet the requirements of Nagoya and

of mid-Japan which had been making rapid expansion, the fourth stage of the

construction was begun in 1928 at an estimate of 10,120,000 yen. This work

will be completed in 1938, when the area of the wharves will be increased1 to

2.23 square kilometres, and the anchoring capacity to 333,000 tons for 66

steamers including 11 ten thousand tonners

Nagoya Harbour is an important port of call for many lines, trade

with America, Europe, China, the South Sea Islands, Australia, and Africa,

is carried on directly from this port by thirty-three lines.

The port was opened to foreign trade in 1907, and domestic and foreign

trade have developed with remarkable rapidity.

town clusters at the foot and on the slope of a bold rock known to foreigners

as Hakodate Head, about 1,000 feet in height, which is within a fortified area

to which the public are not admitted. The surrounding country is hilly,

The popula-

lation of Hakodate according to the last official census in October 1930 was

197,252.

The foreign trade of the port is small, but has been steadily growing

during the last few years, mainly owing to the development of the Kamtschatka

salmon fisheries, for which Hakodate is the principal entrepot. In the

valuable and extensive fisheries on the coast and in the surrounding seas,

however, the chief exports of the future from Hakodate are to be looked for.

Increasing quantities of dried fish and seaweed are exported annually, mostly

to China. The mineral resources of Hokkaido are large. Washing for gold dust

Magnetic iron is also obtained. Oil resource is not considered to be so rich. The

kerosene wealth of this district is said to be considerable, but none of the

borings has so far given a high yield. At Nukimi-Mura on Soya Strait—in

the extreme north—oil well were discovered long ago, and have been worked

by hand for some years. The oil, in fact, overflows into the sea, and in

stormy weather boats take refuge at Nukimi-Mura, as the sea is rendered

smooth by the oil. Oil also exists at Nigori Kawa, near Hakodate; at Kaya-

begori, near Shiribeshi; at Itaibetsu, pn a tributary of the Urin River ("output

800 gallons per day); at Kotamimura and Tsukisama Mura (Imperial pro-

perty), near Sapporo; and near Abashiri, where the wells are considered rich.

Hakodate is reached in 17| hours from Tokyo, via Aomori, between which

place and Hakodate there is a very good steamship service, maintained by the

Government Railways.by rail,

to Odomari, in Karafuto (Japanese Saghalien). The Hakodate Harbour Im-

provement Works were completed in 1900, and a patent slip capable of taking

vessels up to 1,500 tons was also finished. There is a dry dock to accommo-

date ships up to 10,000 tons at ordinary spring tides, and at highest spring

tides the dock is capable of receiving the largest battleships in the Japanese

Navy.

In August, 1907, half the city of Hakodate was destroyed by a fire. The

number of houses destroyed in the conflagration was ascertained to be 8,977,

rendering about 60,000 persons homeless. All the foreign residents with the

exception of the American Consular Agent were burnt out, saving nothing,

and the total loss was estimated at not less than Yen 50,000,000.

Another disastrous fire occurred on the evening of March 21, 1934 in the

eastern section of the city during a terrific hurricane. Three-fifths of the city

were completely burnt out within a few hours, and only the changed direction

of the wind just before midnight saved the city from, being entirely wiped out.

The loss of lives and property was estimated at nearly 2,000 deaths,

140,000 persons rendered homeless, 25,000 houses destroyed, and Yen 1601)00,000

worth of property.

As a result of these disastrous fires, a scheme is now in force by which a

Municipal Subsidy is granted to encourage building with fireproof materials.

OTARU

This pleasantly situated town, 157 miles north of Hakodate, is the prin-

cipal of the open ports of Hokkaido being of easy access to the rich agricul-

tural lands in the Island, and having convenient railway facilities to all the

timber bearing areas.. The agricultural resources have been considerably

developed, and the rich pasture landsf are well adapted for breeding cattle and

horses. The exports are timber, mos lv hardwood, beans, peas, onions, potatoes

and general produce. Otaru is a regular port of call of the principal steam-

ship lines trading to the Far East. Extensive harbour improvements are now

in course of construction which will give wharfage accommodation for steamers

up to 7,000 tons. The population of Otaru, according to the last census in

October, 1930, was 144,880 It is the third largest city in the island of Hok-

kaido. There is a small foreign communitv engaged in the timber or ship-

ping trade. The climate is healthy and bracing, with heavy snow during

the winter which provides ample facilities for skating and toboganning. The

skating season lasts from December to March. The waterworks, which supply

pure water to the town, are situated in the surrounding hills within easy

access to the city. The city possesses an efficient fire brigade which keeps in

touch with any part of the town by means of automatic fire alarms. There

is the largest and most up-to-date can-making factory supplying all the

cans to the salmon and crab fishing areas in the northern waters.

and imposing

It is

now the Headquarters of the Fourth Division, the grounds having been converted

into a public park. Osaka is the seat of numerous industries, including cotton-

spinning mills, shipbuilding yards, iron-works and sugar refineries. Cotton-spinning

and weaving are the most important industries and there are a large num-

ber of big mills in the city and neighbourhood. Recently there has been a

surprising development in the manufacture of all kinds of goods for the

export trade in Osaka’s well-equipped factories. The Imperial Mint also is

established here. From the outset the street Electric Tramway within the city

limits was a municipal undertaking and at present 106 kilometres are open

to traffic.

The harbour is under the control of the Municipal Harbour Department.

Extensive improvements have been in progress for a number of years and

still further plans are to be given effect to. Among them, the reconstruction

work of the Port Osaka which was commenced in 1934 is designed for comple-

tion by 1940, when a huge outer break-water, length 3,995 meters, will be

constructed and water-area protected by it will amount to 5,950,000 square

meters.

By this year, on the other' hand, the North Harbour Company is due to

enclose an additional marine area of 2,317,000 square meters between the

Shinyodo River and the Azi River

In the near future, it is expected that the Harbour will have been

equipped with the most modern appliances and facilities. The present har-

bour has berthing accommodation at 37 buoys for ships of 5,000 to 20,000

gross tons. Four landing piers and eight quays, all with sheds and railway

facilities, have water depth of 30 feet or over. Floating and fixed wharf

cranes and dry docks are available.

The trade statistics of Osaka since the War have shown great growth.

The total foreign trade in 1937 consisted of 1,994,739 tons of merchandise

valued at Yen 853,104,864 in exports and 5,508,515 tons at Yen 835,182,960 in

imports.

KYOTO

Kyoto from A.D. 794 to 1868 was the capital of Japan. Its sacred and

classic associations as well as the picturesque character of the surrounding

country combine to invest the city with an interest attaching to no other place

in Japan. Kyoto has excellent hotel accommodation for foreign tourists. The

city lies practically in the centre of Japan in the main line of railway, and

is reached from Kobe in less than an hour and a quarter by express train.

The population in 1938 was estimated at 1,159,800 thus making it the fifth largest city

in Tapan

The first Biwa Canal completed in 1895 was designed for the passage oi

goods and passengers and to supply water power, the second canal constructed

at aforcostpurposes

and of Yen of4,477,805, supplies water

hydro-electricity, etc. for drinking, for the fire brigade

Businessmen and visitors to Kyoto will find the officials of the Kyoto Chamber

of Commerce ready with helpful suggestions both for making commercial con-

nections and also arranging sightseeing plans. Two fast electric lines connect

Kyoto and Osaka. The Government has electrified its line, the express train

making the run (28 miles) in 40 minutes. Excellent motor highways also leave

Kyoto for several nearby places of commercial and scenic importance.

Besides its importance as a sightseeing centre and as the distributing centre

for a large variety of artistic Japanese products, it is also important as an

educational centre, having four universities as well as many other schools.

Kyoto Imperial University has about 7,000 students.

KOBE

Kobe, finely situated on Osaka Bay and now the fifth largest, city in Japan,

was originally, until its opening to foreign trade in the year 1868, a small

fishing village near the once important town of Hyogo. 'The new port was

known at first under the latter name, but in 1892 the two towns were united

under the name of Kobe City and are now indistinguishable, while subsequent

additions have considerably extended the, municipal boundaries. Water sup-

ply, electric lighting and tramways are municipal services, and there are

carried

out, and there are now available for foreign-going steamers five large con-

crete piers, with quays on either side, owned by the government, together

with a number of smaller piers, some by private concerns, all of these being

connected with the main Tokyo-Shimonoseki line of railwav. Two more large

piers, one with a slip in the centre, are now nearing' completion, while

large new piers have been built for the domestic trade in Hyogo Bay. There

is also an extensive anchorage, protected by breakwaters. In Kobe are the

Kawasaki and Mitsubishi shipyards, both equipped with all modem facilities.

In addition to the above, Kobe possesses steelworks, locomotive and carriage

works, the Dunlop Rubber Company's works, a plate and sheet mill, the

Nippon Keori Company’s Head Offices, four mills of the KanegafucM cotton

spinning company, sugar and flour mills and also match, chemical and other

factories. The city faces the landlocked bay, and at a distance of a mile and

upwards from the sea front there rises a chain of steep and picturesque hills,

at the foot of which are the residential districts. To the north-east, on a

range, of hills known as Rpkko-zan, 2,500 to 3,000 ft. above sea-level is a sum-

mer resort, popular among Japanese and Europeans. The links of the Kobe

Golf Club, which owe their inception to the enterprise of a small number of

KOBE 149.

former British residents, are a great attraction jto the resort, itokkozan is

reached by a cable-oar, a ropeway and three motor roads and possesses num-

erous paths which afford good walks. Two modern hotels offer good accom-

modation. Kobe stretches for some ten miles along the strip of land between

the hills and the water and is rapidly extending, on both sides, particularly

in the. direction of Osaka, with which it is. connected by rail and by three

electric tramways, as well as by a broad, well-constructed motor-road. A

number of large modern buildings have added much to the appearance of the

city during recent years. Kobe has three main railway stations—Sannomiya,

Kobe and Ryogo. of which the first-named is the most important for foreign

residents—all three being on the main Tokyo-Shimonoseki through line. There

are several clubs- the Kobe Club (including members of all nationalities), the

Masonic Qlub, the India Club, the Club Concordia (German), and the Kobe

of Shioya, twenty minutes by train westward along the coast from Kobe, it is

well equipped for all games. At Mirume the K.R.A.C. have tennis courts and

a large swimming-pool. There is an English Church (All Saints), a Union

Church. (Protestant), a French Roman Catholic Church, a Mosque and also a

number of Japanese Churches of various denominations. Kobe possesses two

good foreign style hotels, the Tor, on the hill, and the Oriental, on the

Bund, and an up-to-date International Hospital run by the foreign com-

m unity.

Over 30,(300 vessels totalling over 50 million'5 (totas enter the port every year,

and the foreigh trade amounts to Yen 2,200,000,000 annually. It has a population of

1,000,000 including 9,000 foreign residents.

The Temple of Nofukuji, which possesses a large Bronze Buddha in the

old town of Hyogo, and is worth a visit; and there is a monument to the

Japanese hero Kiyomori, erected in 1286, in a groVe of trees in the vicinity

of the temple, which claims some attention from its historic associations.

The bed of the old river Minatogawa was reclaimed in 1910. The upper part

of the reclaimed area is now known as Minatogawa Park, where there is a

large market. The lower part of the river-bed is centre for public enter-

tainments, such as cinematographs, etc. The shrine dedicated to Kusunoki

Masashige, the Imperialists, who fell on this spot in 1336 during the unsuc-

cessful. wars for the restoration of the Imperial power, stands between Kobe

Station and Okurayama Park, where theth is also a1 large City Library.

This shrine has recently acquired national pfomiftehcte as a leading shribe

among those of the state religion. In the park stands a bronze statute of

the late Prince Ito, who was one of tne most influential and powerful

statesmen of Japan in the Meiji period.

MOJI ATST» SHIMON OSEKI

These two towns are situated on either side of Shimonoseki Straits, th»

western entrance of the Inland Sea —Moji with a population of 1^2,798 one the

south and Shimonoseki with a population of 162,100 on the north. Shimonoseki

(recently amalgamated with Hikoshima Island—population 126,385), is under the

jurisdiction of Yamaguchi (population 130,000), 51 miles away, and Moji under

that of Fukuoka (population 302,068) 47 miles away. The foreign merchants

formerly all had their offices in Shiinonoseki, but owing to the very rapid growth

of Moji during the last 30 years, due mainly to its becoming an important coal and

industrial centre, most of the foreign and Japanese main and local branch offices

have removed to Moji. The city has now fine roads, and commercial buildings

with most up to date tram, bus and motor car services. The head office of the

Kyushu section of the Itiilway Bureau at Moji controls also part of the mainland

and the eight hour Fusan ferry service. An impo-,ing Government building,popses

the Customs Harbour, Marine Bureaux, etc., at Moji, and now wharves, capable of

mooring steamers drawing 30 feet, are made nearby. Moji has important trade

with the following neighbouring cities Kokura, population 135,000; Yawata

(Government Steel Works) 250,000 ; Tobata 77,556 ; Wakarnat.su, 77,307 and Moji

has absorbed the adjacent town of Dairi (on the west side), where there! are now

many factories and some foreigners’ offices. There is a fairly strong tidal current

through the Straits, but the anchorage, which is at Moji, is only affected by an

eddy, and good holding ground is general. However, most of the larger vessels

engage one of the numerous Buoys controlled by the Harbour Master. Steamers

entering from the West can get pilots at Rokuren Light, where boats have to

stop in any case for medical inspection and harbour-master’s instructionSi From

the eastward this inspection takes place at Hesaki Light. Means of transport are

good. Liners run regularly to all foreign ordinary ports of call ; and, while from

Shimonoseki the Sanyo Railway taps the north, from Moji the Kiushiu 'Railway

taps the south of Japan. The Shimonoseki Station Hotel provides good accom-

modation for foreigners. The Imperial Railway Department has also four large

ferry boats plying between Moji and the Shiinonoseki Station, while a ten minute

ferry plies between the usual landing places at Moji and Shimonoseki. ,A tunnel

is now being made under the straits and will take at least 4 years to complete.

Both towns have municipal waterworks, are lit by electricity, and are connected

by telephone with the principal towns, from Kagoshima and Nagasaki in the

south, to Tokyo in the north east. It should be specially noted that photographing

and sketching are forbidden within a radius of ten miles round Shimonoseki

and Moji on land and sea. The law in this respect is strictly enforced and ignorance

is not accepted as an excuse. . ,,

NAGASAKI

At the end of the sixteenth century, when the nations of Western Europe

were vigorously competing for the trade of the Far East, Nagasaki—then a

fishing village—was set aside by the Japanese authorities as a place of foreign

residence. It speedily became the chief trading port of the country. When

the Christian religion was banned in 1637 and only the Dutch were allowed

trade privileges, a small island in Nagasaki harbour called Deshima was

allotted the

foreign Christian priests, the city was the centre of the anti-Christian opera-

tions conducted by the Japanese government. By the treaty of 1858 Nagasaki

was one of the ports opened to British trade on the 1st of July in the follow-

ing year.

On entering the harbour of Nagasaki no stranger can fail to be struck with

the admirable situation of the town and the beautiful panorama of hilly

scenery opened to his view. The harbour is a land-locked inlet deeply in-

dented with small bays, about three miles long with a width varying from haif-

a-mile to a mile. A reclamation scheme was commenced in October, 1897, and

FORMOSA

This island, one of the largest in Asia, is situated between latitude and

26 degrees N., and longitude 120 and 122 degrees E., and is separated from

the coast of Fukien, China, by a channel about one hundred miles in width.

It is a prolongation of the Japanese and Loochoo Archipelagoes, and in 1886

was incorporated in the Japanese Empire. Its name Formosa, signifying

“beautiful island,” was conferred by the Portuguese, the first Europeans to

visit it, but it was called Taiwan (Great Bay) by the Chinese, to whom it

belonged from 1661 to 1694. It is said that the Japanese endeavoured to

form a colony in the island in 1620, but large numbers of Chinese were settled

there prior to that date. The Dutch arrived1 in 1634, and founded several

settlements, and traces of their occupation are still to be found in the island,

but they were compelled in 1661 to retire by the Chinese pirate chief Koxinga,

who then assumed the sovereignty of western Formosa. His grandson and

successor, however, was induced, twenty-two years later, to resign the crown

to the Emperor of China. By the Treaty of Shimonoseki, which terminated

the war between China and Japan in 1895, the island was ceded

to Japan as one of the conditions of peace, and on the 1st June, 1895,

the formal surrender was made, the ceremony taking place on board ship

outside iKeelung. The resident Chinese officials, however, declared a republic,

and offered resistance, and it was not until the end of October that the oppos-

ing forces were completely overcome, the last stand being made in the south

by Liu Yung-fu, the Black Flag General, of Tonkin notoriety. Takow was

bombarded and captured on 15th October, and Anping was peacefully occupied

on the 21st of the same month, Liu Yung-fu having taken refuge in flight.

Formosa is about 260 miles in length, and from 60 to 70 miles broad in

the widest part. It is intersected from north to south by a range of mountains,

which forms a kind of backbone, to the island, the loftiest peak of which,

Mount Morrison (Niitakayama), is 13,880 feet high. On the western side of

this range the slope is more gradual than on the eastern side, and broken

by fertile valleys which lose themselves in the large undulating plain on which

the Chinese are settled. The high land cast of the dividing chain is peopled

by an aboriginal race who acknowledge no allegiance to the Chinese Govern-

ment and made frequent raids upon the outlying Chinese settlements, but

as the island is being steadily opened up conditions are improving, and

doubtless in course of time they will become merged in the general popula-

tion, although naturally a savage and warlike people, allied to the Malays

and Polyneisians, who lived principally by the chase.

The trade and industries of the island are steadily developing, and both

fish and fruit are now being largely exported to the mother-country and

Dairen, whilst recently attention has been directed to the gathering of coral,

supplies of which have been found in the waters of the northern vicinity. AH

the principal towns are now equipped with water works, electric lighting,

and large markets, etc., and connection between them by motor lines of cars

is becoming general, replacing the push cars hitherto mainly in use.

One great drawback to the island is its lack of good harbours, which is,

more especially felt on account of the strength of the monsoons in the Formosa

Channel. Those on the eastern side are few and neither commodious nor

accessible;' whilst r on the west coast, with the exception of Keelung in the

north and Takow in the south, they are little better than open roadsteads.

Harbour improvements have just been completed at Keelung, and are still

being carried out at Takow-, when completed, they will greatly increase the

existing accommodation. The depth at low water at the entrance to the

harbours is 30 feet and 23£ feet, respectively.

Taipeh is the capital of Formosa, and Tainan is the chief city in the

south of the Island. The open ports are four in number, viz., Takow and

Anping in the south, and Tamsui and Keelung in the north. The latter was

held for some months in 1884-5 by the French, under Admiral Courbet, but was

evacuated on June 21st 1885. The rivers of Formosa are few, shallow,

and winding, only navigable to small flat-bottomed boats. The scenery is

delightful, and the climate is very pleasant in the wdnter, but hot in some

parts of the island.

A complete system of post and telegraph 'shivjc«s is. in force while two

cables connect the island ’with Japan proper.

Air service.,for passengers and mail:

Between Taipeh and Tokyo, daily.

Between Taipeh and Karenko, daily.

A railway traversing the w’est side of the island, from Keelung in the

north to Keisbu in the south was officially opened by H.I.H, Prince Kan

In on October 24th, 1008. A short line also connects Taipeh and Tamsui in

the north. On the west coast is a loop line of 56$ miles between Chikunan

and Oden (near Shoka) Hugging the coast, as it does, it avoids the steep

gradients and numerous tunnels of the main line. On the through-line, sleep-

ing-cars are now run for the accommodation of first and second class passengers.

There is also a railway along the East coast, and some other minor lines

partially completed. Besides the Government lines there are 1,349 miles of

private railways laid by sugar companies.

The port of Taxnsui lies in lat. 25 deg. 10 min. N., and long. 101 deg.

26 min. E., on the north-western side of the fertile island of Formosa. The

harbour has a troublesome bar, which has retarded the growth of the port and has

necessitated the transfer to Keelung of the steamship agencies that formerly made it

their headquarters.

but were unable to take the place. The Japanese took possession on the 7th June, 1895.

The port of Keelung lies to the north-east of Tamsui, in latitude 25 deg.

6 min. N. and longitude 121 deg. 47 min. E. It is situated on the shores of

a bay between the capes of Foki and Peton, some 20 miles apart, amidst bold

and striking scenery, backed by a range of mountains. It was once a Spanish

Settlement, but was subsequently captured and held by the Dutch until they

in turn gave place to the Chinese under Koxinga, formerly a pirate chief,

who caused himself to be proclaimed King of Formosa. Though but a mere

village, it had long carried on a considerable native trade with Amoy, Chin-

chew, and Foochow. Keelung was opened to foreign trade at the same time

as the other Formosan ports. The limits of the port are defined to be within

a straight line drawn from Image Point to Bush Island. On the 5th August,

1884, the port was bombarded by the French under Admiral Lespes, when the

forts above the town were reduced to ruins, and the place captured. It was

then garrisoned by the French, who held it until after the Treaty of Peace

had been signed at Tientsin in June, 1885 The place was occupied by the

Japanese on the 3rd, June, 1895.

At Keelung harbour improvements were completed in 1934 at a cost of

over 33 million Yen, and have largely increased the accommodation available.

The present harbour is however too small for the increased number of

vessels which enter and clear, and an extension work, which was started in

1935 under a 9-year programme at a total cost of Y7,795,440, is now in pro-

gress. The main work under the new programme is the construction of a

breakwater in the outer harbour. At present about 30 vessels of under 20,000

tons and above 3,000 tons can be accommodated in the inner harbour.

During 1900 a lighthouse was completed on Pak-sa Point, a low headland

on the west coast, some 20 miles south-west of Tamsui, and one has been

erected on Agincourt Island. At Keelung there are stone quays in connection

It is

now possible to accommodate at the quays about 10 steamers each of 10,000 tons

capacity, and admit ten steamers below this tonnage at the buoys.

The railway line between Tarnsui and Taipeh was opened in August, 1901,

and has been of great benefit to the people of the district. Keelung is the

northern terminus of the trans-Formosan Government Railway. The capital

city is known by the Chinese name of Taipeh, and also under the Japanese

nomenclature of Taihoku, which is now applicable, also, to the whole province, the

former names of Manka, Daitotei, etc., being urban districts and not applicable to

the city as a whole.

TAINAN, TAKAO AND ANPINfi

The city of Tainan (until 1889 known as Taiwanfu or Taiwanfoo

i.e. The capital of Taiwan) situated in lat. 23 deg. 6 min. N., and long.

1.29 deg. 5 min. E., is the oldest city in Formosa. For nearly two cen

turies it was the capital under the Chinese regime-, prior to that

it had been held by both the Dutch and Koxinga, and relics of the

former’s occupation still exist. Next to Taipeh, it is the principal city, and

wide and well constructed. The old Chinese walls, some five miles in circum-

ference, have been demolished to make room for improvements.

Waterworks have been constructed in the hills some distance from the

city and it is now lighted by electricity, the power being carried by an over-

head line from a generating station a few miles south of Takow. Tainan is

distant 218 miles from Taipeh by rail.

Anping is the shipping port for Tainan, situated about ohree miles west

of that city on the border of a lagoon. Communication ia by a trolley

line and a creek navigable for chutehs and small junks. There is also

a road on which is a regular service of motor buses. The port itself

is an open roadstead, vessels anchoring outside the bar and a mile or

so from the beach. From November to the end of May the anchorage is a

good one, but during the S. W. moonsoon a heavy swell sets in, rendering

it difficult and sometimes impossible for vessels to load or discharge. Form-

erly Anping was a small but thriving port, but since the improvements to

Tak&o harbour were effected, its importance has materially declined, and it

is now almost deserted, though its proximity to Tainan still necessitates a

certain amount of shipping calling. As regards climate, Anping, during the

summer months, can boast of a comparatively cool temperature owing to sea

breezes; Tainan is usually two or three degrees warmer. From October to the

end of April there is little or no rain,and the cool weather then leaves noth-

ing to be desired.

some of their cargo in the outer harbour to enable them to come inside; if the

Takao is the only harbour in the south catering for the bulk of the sugar

trade and other industries, its future is assured. Large reclamations have

been made along the shore of the lagoon, transforming marsh-land into a well

laid-out, fair-sized town, with room for expansion.

TAINAN, TAKAO AND ANTING

Foreign shipping is largely increasing in volume, sulphate of ammonia

and other fertilisers now being imported in considerable quantities. The

Japanese Government grants subsidies to the Osaka Shosen Kaisha for a fort-

CHOSEN (KOREA)

Chosen (“Morning Calm"), by peaceful annaxation in August 1910 became

an integral part of the Japanese Empire. It is a peninsula extending south-

ward from the north-east of Asia, washed on the east by the Sea of Japan,

on the west by the Yellow Sea. To the north lie Manchuria and the Russian

Maritime Province, the boundary being marked by the rivers Yalu and Tumen

and the Ever-White Mountains; while on the south it faces the west of Japan

across the Korea Strait, with the island of Tsushima about midway. It has

a coast-line of some 5,400 miles, including its innumerable islands, of which

Quelpart is the largest. It is situated between 124° 11' and 130° 56’ E long,

and between 33° 06' and 43° N lat., its total length being 600 miles from

north to south, and greatest breadth 13p miles from east to west, with an area

of about 85,156 squaie miles. The eastern half of the peninsula is a sinuous

range of mountains of which western Korea is the slope, and the chief rivers

are therefore on the western side, most of the important harbours being sit-

uated on that coast. Chosen is divided into thirteen provinces Wo):—North

of native horses exists and immense numbers of oxen are raised both as draught

animals and for food. Coats are few, and sheep-breeding was started in 1914

by the introduction of sheep from Mongolia. It is now being greatly encouraged

by the authorities, with the idea of making the Japanese Empire as far as

possible, self-supporting as to raw wool. A great deal of attention is now

being paid by the Government to the encouragement of breeding horses as well

as other livestock, and to the raising of swine and poultry. Much of the soil

is fertile, and agriculture has considerably advanced under the Japanese re-

gime, with improved methods of cultivation, in the selection of seeds and

manure, in irrigation and in reclamation. Sericulture, cotton and fruit-

growing are also being given great encouragement by the authorities, and

cotton growing in the South and wool in the North are looked upon as indus-

tries with a great future both for Korea and Japan. There are extensive

vanced nation, from which the Japanese learned many arts and crafts, and

indeed the rudiments of the ancient Chinese civilisation, but she seems never

to have enjoyed any political importance. Situated between China in the

west and Japan in the east, her rulers seem ever to have been involved in

intrigue and scheming to keep in with the stronger party. For centuries she

paid tribute to Peking, while preserving a nominal independence and pur-

suing a policy of exclusion to all foreigners other than Chinese. After the

Meiji Restoration in Japan, the Japanese were anxious to break down this

eccolu^ve barrier, and in 1876 succeeded in entering into a treaty of amity

and commerce. Although China assented to this and to subsequent treaties

with other foreign powers (with America, 1882; -with Britain, 1883; with Ger-

many and Russia, 1884, etc.), thus acknowledging Chosen’s complete indepen-

Kak (“ Bellthe

garded as the centre of the city, and from it a further road bore off to the

south aod south-west, leading to the Nandaimon. All these roads have been

widened and improved, the present Nandaimon-dori being a fine highway

nearly 120 feet wide. The principal thoroughfare of the city now is the great

TaiheLdori. running from the Nandaimon northward to the palatial build-

ings of the Government-General, situated in front of the old Imperial Palace.

This thoroughfare intersects Shoro somewhat to the west of the old centre,

and to the south of and parallel to Shoro another wide thoroughfare has been

driven from in front of the City Office on the Taihei-dori eastwards (Kogane-

machi). About midway between this Kogane-machi and the South Gate along

the Nandaimon-dori there is a fine square, where stand the Central Post Office,

the Dai Ichi Ginko, the great Mitsukoshi Department Store and other im-

portant buildings- This is the Japanese shopping centre, many of the

important Japanese retail firms having branches in and around Honmachi,

the very typically Japanese shopping street that branches off from this square.

On the opposite side, running hack to the Northwest past the Chosen Hotel

into Taihei-dori in front of the city Office, is another broad thoroughfare,

called Hasegawa-cho. In this central part of the city the roads, public

buildings and shops can bear favourable comparison with the great towns of

Japan proper. Many other roads have been made and widened in different parts of

the city, particularly in the vicinity of the new Imperial University, which

190 KETJO (SEOUL)

lies in the north-east and was opened in May, i926. The work of town-planning

the making of parks and so forth, is pursued regularly each year, though

somewhat hampered at present by lack of funds. Lastly, mention must be

made of the stecip hill of Nansan, which hav dominates the city to the south,

half-way up the slopeof which the Japanese e set the great Chosen Shrine,

at which Ama-terasu O-mikami, the divineancestress of the Japanese Imperial

family, and the Emperor Meiji, founder of modern Japan, are venerated as

national guardian deities. This shrine is approached by a magnificant flight

of stone stops, and from the terrace in front of it a splendid panorama of

the city outspread below is obtained.

The population of the city was 677,241 at the end of 1936. The number of

Europeans and Americans is under 400.

CHEMULPO (JINSEN)

Jl| Ll Jin-sen

This port is situated 24 miles west of Seoul and is reached by train in 50

minutes, the two cities being also connected by a good motor road. Among

Korean ports, Chemulpo is surpassed by Fusan alone in the volume of its

trade. The harbour is protected by two islands lying across the entrance, but

suffers the extreme inconvenience of a rise and fall of tide Teaching 30

feet. A dock was constructed in 1918 large enough to accommodate three

steamers of 4,600 tons each, and the construction has now been begun of an-

other dock on a much larger scale. There is no dry dock at Jinsen, only a

This port, situated on the north-eastern coast of Chosen, is in the southern

corner of the province of South Kankyo, about halfway between Fusan and

Vladivostock. The native town has grown considerably since the port was

opened to trade, and contained a population of 61,772 at the end of 1936.

The town is built along the southern shore of the bay, and through it runs

the main road which leads from Reijo to the Tumen river. The harbour is a

good one, being spacious, easy of access, and well sheltered with excellent

holding ground and convenient depth of water.

Trade is carried on by regular lines of steamers running to Japan and coastwise.

The exports consist chiefly of gold, cement, beans and rice. Imports consist chiefly

offoodstuffs.

Fusan, 280 miles from Seoul, is the main gateway for Korea and is the

southern terminus of its trunk railway line. It was once the sole channel

of traffic between Korea and Japan, there having been a settlement of

Japanese here for many years. The port is well protected with a range of

come the centre of two growing industries new to Korea, the ma.nuia«ture

of enamelled ironware and of electric bulbs, the products of both of which

are finding foreign markets. There are also rayon weaving mills and a

cotton spinning and weaving mill. Fusan has the largest proportion of

Japanese residents of any city in Korea, the total population in 1935 being

182,290.

There are few European firms in the port; business is carried on principally-

by the Japanese.

MOKPO

Mokpo, in Japanese “Moppo”, in the province of South Zenra, owes its

prosperity to the rich agricultural lands lying behind it. It has a good and

well-protected harbour with deep water permitting ships up to 15,000 tons

to anchor close inshore. Regular steamship lines ply to other Korean ports

and to Japan. Mokpo is the principal cotton-shipping port of Korea, but

even here the rice exports are of far greater importance. Both go exclusively

to Japan. The population in 1933 was 55,667.

regular service between Japan and Manchuria, the aerodrome being on the

left bank of the river, and possesses an European-style hotel, operated by

the Chosen Railway Bureau. Good anthracite coal is found in the neigh-

bourhood. Heijo is an important missionary centre.

Chinnampo, the seaport of Heijo, is situated some 40 miles down the

river on the north side of the estuary, about 20 miles from its mouth, and

is also connected by railway. The harbour of Chinnampo affords safe accom-

modation for vessels and is moreover equipped with a dock capable of taking

two vessels of 3,000 tons. The population in 1935 was 50,516. Ten miles up

the river, between Heijo and Chinnampo, are the big steelworks of Kenjiho.
