THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 8TH JANUARY, [1879.

And Whereas it is by the said Ordinance also enacted that the person, if any, actually holding any such privi- lege is thereby empowered to grant licences to all proper persons authorising them to boil and prepare opium and to sell and retail opium so boiled and prepared:

And Whereas it is desirable to make some provisions with respect to the regulating the quantity of opium manufactured and the transfer of the stocks of raw and prepared opium in the possession of the person holding

such exclusive privilege and his licensees at or near the end of his term of exclusive privilege to the next holder of the same, and to make other amendments in the said recited Ordinance:

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

I. No person holding such exclusive privilege as afore- said, nor any licensee under such person as aforesaid, shall sell or dispose of any boiled or prepared opium at or near the end of the term for which such person holds such exclusive privilege or at any time during the term for which such person holds such exclusive privilege so as in either case to authorize the use of such boiled or prepared opium at any time after 12 o'clock at noon of the third day after the commencement of the term of the new holder of the exclusive privilege, under a penalty not exceeding one thousand dollars.

any

II. Every holder of such exclusive privilege shall, one month before the end of his term of exclusive privilege ex- pires, give public notice in the form provided by the sche- dule A hereto that the said privilege is to expire on the day to be named and that no boiled or prepared opium pur- chased from such holder of such exclusive privilege or from licensee of such holder can be used after such time with- out the consent of the new holder. Such notice shall be printed in English and Chinese and the holder of the ex- clusive privilege shall supply copies thereof to all persons licensed by him under the said recited Ordinance: and every person so licensed shall exhibit the notice in his place of sale in a conspicuous position so as to be plainly visible to every person entering such place of sale. Any person offending against any of the provisions of this section shall be liable to a penalty not exceeding one hundred dollars.

III. The holder of the exclusive privilege and his licensees shall, on the expiration of his term, hand over to the incoming holder, and the incoming holder shall take boiled over from the outgoing holder all his stock of and prepared opium at such prices as may be settled subject to the proviso hereinafter contained for arbitration in case of difference.

raw,

IV. Neither the holder of the exclusive privilege nor his licensees shall, at or near the end of his term, manu- facture more than the usual quantity of boiled or prepared opium, or sell any boiled or prepared opium at less than the average current prices of the day, or in greater quan- tities than usual at the time of the year, and shall not sell, export, or otherwise make away with or dispose of any of his stock of boiled or prepared opium, but shall make over to the new holder of the said exclusive privilege the full and complete stock of raw or boiled and prepared opium at the marketable value thereof and in the event of any difference arising as to quantities of boiled and prepared opium manufactured or sold during the last three months of the term and the price of the same and of the nature and quantity of the raw or boiled or prepared opium so to be purchased or made over and the prices thereof, such differ- ence shall be determined by three arbitrators, one to be appointed by the new holder of the exclusive privilege, one by the person whose exclusive privilege has expired or is

Objects and Reasons.

The principal objects of this Ordinance are to impose some check on the outgoing opium farmer to prevent him from manufacturing or disposing at or near the end of his terin excessive quantities of boiled or prepared opium to the detriment of the new opium farmer and of the revenue, and to give to the opium farmer increased facilities for his protection from competition by unauthorised persons.

Section 1 provides that no opium farmer or his licensee shall dispose of prepared opium at or near the end of his term or at any other time authorising the use of such pre- pared opium after 12 o'clock of the 3rd day after the com- mencement of the term of the succeeding farmer.

賽他

Section 2 provides that public notice shall be given by the outgoing farmer previous to the cessation of the term for which he holds the exclusive privilege of boiling and preparing opium and selling and retailing the same and that no boiled or prepared opium may be lawfully used after the date mentioned in such notice without the consent of the incoming farmer.

Section 3 provides that the outgoing farmer shall handi over his stocks of opium to the incoming farmer at current prices.

Section 4 provides that the opium farmer shall not at or near the end of his term manufacture more than the usual quantity of opium nor sell prepared opium at less than current price or in larger quantities than usual at the time. of year, nor sell, export, &c., any of his stock of prepared opium, but make over to the new farmer all his stock at marketable value and in the event of differences arising between the outgoing and incoming farmer in respect of this or the 3rd section provides for a reference to arbitration.

Section 5 amends section 8 of Ordinance 2 of 1858, and is intended to make it clear that no person is permitted to use prepared opium purchased from a farmer whose privi- lege has expired. A proviso is introduced for the per- mitting small quantities to be used purchased from the old farmer or his licensees for a limited period after the com- mencement of the new farmer's term.

Section 6 permits the seizure by a Revenue or Police Officer of prepared opium found in the possession of un- authorised persons or in unauthorised places and also of utensils and vessels used or manifestly intended to be used for boiling or preparing opium.

Section 10 authorises the Governor to appoint Revenue Officers on the nomination of the opium farmer.

Section 11 provides that the names and places of resi- dence of Revenue Officers shall be posted conspicuously at

the Police Court.

Section 12 enacts that Revenue Officers shall be provided with badges which are to be produced when they are about to act as such Revenue Officers. Police Officers when acting as Revenue Officers are also to produce some part of their public equipment.

Section 13 removes any doubt existing at present by providing that penalties may be renewed summarily before a Magistrate.

tended to mean.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

Translations in Chinese, for the information

of the Chinese portion of the Community, of

some of the Government Notifications are insert-

ed herein, but it is to be understood that in case of variance in the sense of the English and Chi- nese versions, the sense of the English text must

be considered as correct.

By Command,

C. MAY,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office,

No. 9.

Hongkong, 3rd January, 1879.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

VER.

Notice is hereby given that, in view of the approaching Chinese New Year, he Superintend- ent of Police has been authorised to give permission,

under Ordinance 10 of 1872, for Crackers to be

fired under the following restrictions:-

In the Districts West of the Cross Roads

and of Shing-wong Street the firing of

Crackers will be permitted from 4 P.M..

on the 21st until 4 P.M. on the 23rd January;

In the Districts East of the Cross Roads and of Shing-wong Street, Crackers may be fired only between the hours

of 4 P.M. of the 21st and 9 P.M. of the 22nd January.

The Police will have strict orders to summon or arrest persons firing Crackers in contravention of the foregoing restrictions.

But whilst allowing thus the same liberty as heretofore, His Excellency the Governor desires the Chinese public to take special precautions on

this occasion, as the unusual dryness of the weather increases the danger of a conflagration arising in case of careless handling of Crackers.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office,

C. MAY.

Acting Colonial Secretary.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

Notice is hereby given that, in view of the approaching Chinese New Year, the Superintend- ent of Police has been authorised to give permission, under Ordinance 10 of 1872, for Crackers to be fired under the following restrictions:-

In the Districts West of the Cross Roads

and of Shing-wong Street the firing of Crackers will be permitted from 4 P.M.

on the 21st until 4 P.M. on the 23rd January;

In the Districts East of the Cross Roads and of Shing-wong Street, Crackers may be fired only between the hours

of 4 R.M. of the 21st and 9 P.M. of the 22nd January.

The Police will have strict orders to summon or arrest persons firing Crackers in contravention of the foregoing restrictions.

But whilst allowing thus the same liberty as heretofore, His Excellency the Governor desires the Chinese public to take special precautions on this occasion, as the unusual dryness of the weather increases the danger of a conflagration arising in case of careless handling of Crackers.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

[No. 27 of 1878.]

Marine Department, Wellington, 30th October, 1878. The following letter, received from Captain MILES of the brig Rio Loge, relative to the position of Rennels and Bellona Islands, is published for general information.

G. GREY.

RENNELS AND BELLONA ISLANDS, Dunedin, 3rd October, 1878. SIR,—I have the honour to report to you an error in the position of some islands I passed on my passage from Foochow to this port in the brig Rio Loge. These islands, named Rennels and Bellona, are marked as doubtful" islands on the latest published charts, and are situated directly in the track between China and Australia. The position assigned to Rennels Island is N.W. point 11° 12′ south latitude, and 160° 19′ east longitude, whereas the correct position should be for the N.W. point 11° 30′ south latitude, and 160° 8′ east longitude, making an error of 18′ in latitude and 11' in longitude. My observations were taken within two or three miles of the N.W. point, and the error of my chronometer found only the day before at Christoval, so that I can rely upon the position. The S.É. point I place in 11° 51' south and 160° 42 east, approximate. Rennels Island and Bellona bear from each other N.W. by W. and S.E by E., not more than fifteen miles distant.

I cannot find in any directory a description of Rennels Island, and I believe there is none published, I therefore enclose the following remarks from my own observation:-

Rennels Island is about 38 miles long and 8 wide at the N.W., and lies in a N.W. and S.E. direction, is about 500 to 600 feet high, of uniform height throughout, and thickly wooded down to the water's edge. Along the whole N.E. side is a fringing reef about two cables from the shore. The N.W. point is a gradually-sloping point, with a hummock two hundred or three hundred yards from the beach, and has a reef extending about four or five cables from the shore, with a strong tide rippling round the point; the coast trends about three miles to the S.W., and thence to south-eastward. Bellona Island appears to be about the same height as Rennels Island, and also thickly wooded.

Trusting that you will give this publicity for the benefit of shipmasters generally,

I have, &c.,

EDWARD MILES,

Master Rio Loge.

Government of South Australia.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

INVESTIGATOR STRAIT ALTHORPE ISLAND.

Referring to Notices issued from this Department on the 27th July, 1877, the 25th January, 1878, and the 6th June, 1878,Mariners are now hereby informed that on and after the 14th day of February, 1869, a Revolving Light of the first order, flashing every fifteen seconds, will be exhibited from a Light Tower, painted white, and 40 feet in height, erected on the large Althorpe Island. The color of the light will be white, except between the bearings, from the Lighthouse, of N. 25° W., and 61° W., where a red arc of light will be shewn, leading half-a-mile to the eastward of Emmes Reef, and nearly half-a-mile southward of the S.W. Rock.

The focal plane of the light will be at an elevation of 350 feet above the sea-level. In ordinary weather, the bright portion of the light should be observed from a ship's deck about 25 miles distant, and the red arc of light obout 17 miles.

When much refraction exists both lights may be seen at a greater distance.

Pa. B. C. AYRES,

Colonial Surgeon.

No. 21.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1879.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The following Hydrographic Notice is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 28th January, 1879.

C. MAY,

39

Acting Colonial Secretary.

The information contained in this notice is to be carefully considered, to be noted in the Sailing Directions, and compared with the chart when the ship is navigating the parts to which it refers.

HYDROGRAPHIC NOTICE.

[No. 42.]

EASTERN ARCHIPELAGO.

NOTICE NO. 17.

The following information relating to Balabac strait, Sulu sea, Macassar strait, and Gillolo passage, has been received from various sources, 1877-78.

[All Bearings are Magnetic. Variation 1° 30′ Easterly in 1878.]

BALABAC STRAIT.*

Black Watch Rock, on which the British barque Black Watch is reported to have struck, 1878, lies just within the danger line depicted on the chart, south side of Main channel, Balabac strait.

From the position of this rock, as given by the master of the Black Watch, North Mangsee island is seen open of South Mangsee island, bearing N. E, and the cay on Bangucy Outer north-east reefs, S.E. Et

From the irregularity of the soundings near this suspected locality it is possible that shallow coral heads may exist.‡

SULU SEA.Ş

KINABATANGAN RIVER, on the north-east coast of Borneo, is a large river, said to be navigable for a distance of about 200 miles from the entrance. The bar of this river lies parallel to the coast, about 4 miles from the shore; vessels of 12 feet draft might cross the bar at high water during the south-west monsoon, but it is doubtful whether it would be safe during the north-east monsoon. Within the entrance the river widens and forms a basin many miles in extent; this basin is said to have deep water throughout, but where the river again narrows a bar with only 9 feet is said to exist.

The east entrance point of Kinabatangan river is in lat. 5° 39′ N., long. 118° 35′ E.|| (approximate).

The northern part of Borneo from Kimanis river on the north-west coast to Sibocu river on the east coast, has been ceded by the Sultans of Bruni and Sulu to a British Trading Company, 1878.

Baron de Overbeck, the representative of this company, proceeded in a steam launch about 230 miles up Kinabatangan river, where it was found to be 60 to 70 yards wide, and to have a depth of 7 fathoms.¶

Coral Shoal.-H.M.S. Growler, 1877, when proceeding between Cagayan Sulu and Muleegee islands, passed over a coral shoal near the centre of the channel, the least water obtained was 63 fathoms, the bottom however, was distinctly visible. There are 23 to 26 fathoms a short distance northward, and 55 to 65 fathoms within 14 miles southward of this shoal. From the shoal South Muleegee island bears S.W. by W. westerly 4 miles, and Tanjong Tavo Tavo, west extreme of Cagayan Sulu, N.N.W. W. westerly 7 miles.**

SULU ÍSLAND-Maimbun bay.-Sub-Lieutenant K. Wade, H,M.S. Hart, 1878, remarks:-While steaming into Maimbun bay, a rock about three quarters of a mile off shore was observed. This rock appeared to be awash at low water, and to form part of an extensive shoal (Batolaqui shoal) with 2 to 6 fathoms water; the rock is generally marked by a stick placed by the natives, but it cannot be depended on. Point Parang open of point Tubingantan bearing N.W. W. leads

1414 south-west of Batolaqui shoal, and mount Mabintah, N.E. by E., leads south-east of the shoal.tt

MACASSAR STRAIT.‡‡

Reef reported. A reef-of which Notice has been given by the Netherlands Government-is reported to lie about 4 miles from the north-west coast of Celebes island, with South Watcher bearing N.E. by N.; Oedjong Balisan S.S.E. † E.; and south-west entrance point of Dyko Tambing E. by N. N.§§

GILLOLO PASSAGE.||||

Soundings.-Mr. A. Hamilton, Master of the British barque Fire Queen, 1878, states that from a distance of 10 miles south-west of Ormsby bank, in a northerly direction, to abreast its northern edge, depths of 20 to 27 fathoms have been obtained.

To His Honour

(Translation.)

THE ACTING COLONIAL SECRETARY.

The humble petition of the Committee ap- pointed by the Five Districts for the management of the Man-mò Temple, viz., the owners of the Ch‘eung-shing, Tung-ki, Tai-fung-shun, On-t‘ai, and Mau-ün shops, with reference to a united service for the dead to be held on behalf of the whole of Hongkong in celebration of the birthday of the gods of literature and war;

SHEWETH:

That your Petitioners have had transmitted to them from former times certain rules which hitherto have been observed every year, viz., to erect on the steps in front of the temple a matshed, covered with cloth and extending to the gutter, and further to set up opposite the temple, on the slope, a bamboo screen, in order to post up there the list of subscribers, to open the religious cere- monies on the 2nd day of the 2nd moon (22nd February), and to continue them till the night of the seventh day (27th February), exhibiting daily lanterns and groups of statuettes with music and silk festoons, to scatter paper money for the release from purgatory of all who died on land or sea, thirty members of the Committee proceed- ; ing during that night to Mount Davis to burn paper clothes for the benefit of the dead where- upon the service for the dead will be concluded;

That your Petitioners now appeal to your Honour with the humble prayer that you will be pleased to grant permission to your Petitioners to act accordingly, so that both spirits and men may mutually rejoice, and anticipating your Honour's goodness, in condescending to yield to the wishes of the people, your Petitioners feel extremely obliged;

That your Petitioners will be deeply grateful, and pray your Honour to forward this petition and lay it before His Excellency the Governor.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray...

Indemnity for the Loss of a Registered Letter. The following Regulations as to the Indemnity to be paid in certain cases on the loss of Registered correspondence have been made by His Excel- lency the Governor under Ordinance 10 of 1876, Section XII.

The Post Office is not legally responsible for the safe delivery of Registered correspondence, but henceforth it will be prepared to make good the contents of such correspondence lost while passing through the Post, to the extent of $10, in certain cases, provided:

1. That the sender duly observed all the.. conditions of

ion required.

2. That the letter was securely enclosed in a reasonably strong envelope.

3. That application was made to the Post-

master General of Hongkong immediately the loss was discovered, the envelope being invariably forwarded with such application unless it also is lost.

4. That the Postmaster General is satisfied

that the loss occurred whilst the correspondence was in the custody of the British Postal adminis- tration in China, that it was not caused by any Tault on the part of the sender, by destruction by fire, or shipwreck, nor by the dishonesty or negligence of any person not in the employment of the Hongkong Post Office.

5. No compensation can be paid for mere damage to fragile articles such as portraits, watches, handsomely bound books, &c., which reach their destination, although in a broken or deteriorated condition.

NOTICE.

The instructions of His Excellency the Gov- ernor have been received appointing UN MAN- TS'or as Manager of the Stamp Office Branch Agency. [The latter office] has now been esta- blished at No. 79, Bonhain Strand, to sell by commission, at current rates, all sorts of stamps. The establishment of this Branch Agency ori-

ginated in the desire to facilitate the purchase of Stamps on the part of the Chinese Mercantile Community at all times, early or late. But in the case of all forms which require stamps, it is necessary, in accordance with the Ordinance, to use either impressed or adhesive stamps, and there must absolutely be no evasion of the law through a desire to save the small expense, whereby punishment is occurred. It is sincerely

hoped that each will act in his true self-interest.

GENTLEMEN,

The Directors have now to submit to you a General Statement of the affairs of the Bank, and Balance Sheet for the half-year ending 31st December last.

The net profits for that period, including $19,243.05 brought forward from last account, after paying all charges, deducting interest paid and due, making provision for bad and doubtful accounts, and for difference in Exchange between the rate at which the Dividend is declared and the current rate of the day, amount to $319,727.81, of which, after taking out rebate on Bills not yet due, and remuneration to Directors, there remains for appropriation $307,303.27. From this sum, the Directors recommend the payment of a Dividend of One pound Sterling per Share, which will absorb $177,777.77.

The Directors recommend placing $100,000 to the credit of Reserve Fund, which will then stand at $1,300,000, and carrying forward the balance, viz., $29,525.50 to the credit of new Profit and Loss Account.

The Directors congratulate the Shareholders on the above satisfactory results.

In conformity with the provisions of the Deed of Settlement, two members of the Court, Messrs. FORBES and KESWICK, retire from the Direction, but they are eligible for re-election, and offer themselves accordingly.

FEBRUARY,1879.

Kuo ta-jên to the Marquis of Salisbury.

(Received October 15.)

Chinese Legation, 45, Portland Place, October 14, 1878.

MY LORD, I have been instructed by the Tsung-li Yamên and the Grand Secretary Li to request that your Lordship will have the good-

ness to present to the subscribers of the China

Famine Fund the grateful acknowledgment of the Chinese Government for the generous alacrity

with which, on hearing of the fearful calamity which had befallen the northern provinces of China, they hastened to the assistance of the

suffering population.

The noble philanthropy which heard, in a far- distant country, the cry of suffering, and hastened to its assistance, is too signal a recognition of the common brotherhood of humanity ever to be forgotten, and is all the more worthy of being

remembered because it was not a mere passing

response to a generous emotion, but a continued effort, persevered in until, in sending the welcome rain, Heaven gave the assuring promise of returning plenty, and the sign that the brotherly succour was no longer required.

Coming from Englishmen residing in all parts of the world, this spontaneous act of generosity made a deep impression on the Government and people of China, which cannot but have the effect of more closely cementing the friendly relations which now so happily exist between China and the Government and the people of this country, But the hand that gave also assumed the arduous duty of administering the relief; and here I would not forget to offer my grateful thanks and condolence to the families of those (and they are not a few) who nobly fell in distributing the fund. To Englishmen in all parts of the world I beg to offer, through your Lordship, the thanks of the Government and people of China for the generous assistance afforded by them in a time of great calamity; but I more especially desire to thank his Grace the Archbishop of Canterbury, Sir Thomas Wade, Sir Rutherford Alcock, the Governor of Hongkong, and the various mis- sionary societies who inaugurated the China Famine Fund, supported it with their influence, and advanced it by their strenuous exertions.

Trusting that your Lordship will convey to them this acknowledgment of the Chinese Government, I beg, &c.

(Signed) KUO SUNG-TAO.

No. 2.

The Marquis of Salisbury to Kuo ta-jên.

Foreign Office, October 25, 1878.

SIR,-I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 14th instant, convey- ing to me an expression of the grateful acknow- ledgments of the Chinese Government for the assistance rendered by Englishmen in all parts of the world towards relieving distress in the districts of China recently stricken by famine; and I beg leave to acquaint you, in reply, that I shall have great pleasure in communicating such acknow-

ledgments to the persons who were instrumental

in establishing the fund for the relief of the suffering population in China.

I am, &c.,

SIR,----I have the honour to acquaint you that the Secretary of State for War has represented that under the provisions of the Royal Warrant of Promotions of the 13th of August, 1877, it is no longer possible to allow an Officer to hold the appointment of Aide-de-Camp to a Colonial Governor, or any other Colonial appointment without replacing him in his regiment; and that under these circumstances the additional cost of appointing an Officer to such a post will not now be limited to the Staff allowances, but will involve the increased charge of his Regimental pay, which in the case of a Captain is £211 per annum.

pay and

2. As the conditions on which Aides-de-Camp have been, allowed to Colonial Governors have been that the whole additional charge shall be met by the Colony, it will in future be necessary for the Colonies either to pay the full Regimental pay of these Officers, when claimed by the War Office, in addition to the Staff pay and allowances, or which the Secretary of Estate for War thinks will be the most convenient course, to make arrangements with each Officer to pay him his total emoluments for the whole term of Service fixed for the appointment.

3. It is to be understood that the amount of the Staff pay and allowances of an Aide-de-Camp to a Colonial Governor may be fixed at such rates as each Colonial Government may decide upon.

4. The Regimental pay of such Officers will continue to be defrayed from Imperial Funds until the 31st of March next inclusive, but from that date either it must be defrayed from Colonial Funds, as well as the Staff pay and allowances, or the Officers must return to their Regiments from which they can no longer be spared.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient, humble Servant,

The Officer Administering the Government of HONGKONG.

DOWNING STREET, 10th December, 1878.

SIR, A Correspondence having recently taken place between this Department and the Admiralty relative to the payment for coals, &c., consumed on board Her Majesty's Ships when employed in the conveyance of the Governors of Colonies and other Officials on Colonial Service, I have the honour to call your attention to Lord KIMBERLEY'S Circular Despatch of the 13th of December, 1871, on the subject, and to inform you that whenever a Governor requires a Queen's Ship for any purpose which the Naval Authorities do not consider to be part of her ordinary duty, the cost of the coal will be charged against the Colony under his government, and paid by it in the first instance. If, however, the Governor should be of opinion that the cost of the service in question should be charged not against the Colony under his government, but against some other Colony or against Imperial Funds, such re- presentations as he may make to this effect will be considered, and if they appear right, the money will be refunded to the Colony under his government.

I have the honour to be,

When the person claimed shall have been apprehended, he shall be brought before the Magistrate who issued the warrant, or some other Police Magistrate in London. If the evidence to be then produced shall be such as to justify, according to the law of England, the committal for trial of the prisoner, if the crime of which he is accused had been committed in the United Kingdom, the Police Magistrate shall commit him to prison to await the warrant of the Secretary of State for his surrender; sending immediately to the Secretary of State a certificate of the committtal and a report upon the case.

After the expiration of a period from the com- mittal of the prisoner, which shall never be less than fifteen days, the Secretary of State shall, by order under his hand and seal order the fugitive criminal to be surrendered to such person as may be duly authorized to receive him on the part of the Spanish Government.

(B.) In the case of a person convicted-The course of proceeding shall be the same as above indicated, except that the warrant to be tran- smitted by the Diplomatic Representative of Spain in support of his requisition shall clearly set forth the crime or offence of which the person claimed has been convicted, and state the place and date of his conviction.

The evidence to be produced before the Police Magistrate shall be such as would, according to the law of England, prove that the prisoner was convicted of the crime charged.

(C.) Persons convicted by judgment in default or arrêt de contumace, shall be, in the matter of extradition, considered as persons accused, and as such, be surrendered.

(D.) After the Police Magistrate shall have committed the accused or convicted person to prison to await the order of a Secretary of State for his surrender, such person shall have the right to apply for a writ of habeas corpus; if he should so apply, his surrender, must be deferred until after the decision of the Court upon the return to the writ, and even then can only take place if the decision is adverse to the applicant. In the latter case the Court may at once order his delivery to the person authorized to receive him, without the order of a Secretary of State for his surrender, or commit him to prison to await such order.

someterá la demanda de extradicion á un Magistra- do de Policia de Londres, requiriéndole que expida, si ha lugar, un mandato de prision contra la persona reclamada. Este Magistrado expedirá el mandato requerido si las pruebas presentadas fuessen en su opinion bastantes á justificar igual medida en el supuesto de haberse cometido el crimen ó delito en el Reino Unido.

Verificada la aprehension de la persona recla- mada, se la conducirá ante el Magistrado que dictó el auto de prision ó ante cualquier otro Magistrado de Policia de Londres. Si las pruebas presentadas justificasen con arreglo á la ley de Inglaterra la formacion de causa al detenido, en el caso de que el acto por el cual se le acusa hubiese sido cometido en el Reino Unido, el Magistrado de Policia ordenará su prision, hasta que el Secretario de Estado expida la órden para que la extradicion se verifique, y dirigirá inmediatamente á este certificacion de que así lo ha hecho, juntamente con un informe sobre el asunto.

A la terminacion de un plazo que no podrá exceder de quince dias desde que se ordenó la prision y sujecion á juicio del preso, el Secretario de Estado mandará, por medio de una órden de su puño y provista de su sello, que sea aquel entre- gado al Comisionado autorizado para recibirlo por el Gobierno Español.

(b.) En el caso de una persona condenada, el procedimiento será el mismo que queda indicado, salvo que el auto ó mandato que haya de ser presentado por el Representante Diplomático de España en apoyo de la demanda de extradicion expresará claramente el crimen ó delito por el la persona reclamada haya sido condenada, men- cionando al mismo tiempo el lugar y la fecha de la sentencia.

que

La prueba que en ese caso deberá ser presentada al Magistrado de Policia ha de ser de naturaleza que establezca que segun la Ley de Inglaterra el detenido ha sido condenado por la infraccion de que se le acusó.

(c.) Los sentenciados en rebeldía ó in contu- maciam se considerarán para los efectos de la extradicion como acusados, y serán entregados en este concepto.

(d.) Despues de verificada por mandato del Magistrado de Policia la prision de la persona acusada ó condenada, hasta que el Secretario de Estado expida la órden de extradicion, dicha persona tendrá el derecho de reclamar un mandato de Habeas Corpus. Si hiciese uso de este derecho, la extradicion se diferirá hasta que el Tribunal falle sobre el incidente, y no podrá llevarse á cabo sino cuando el fallo sea adverso al reclamente.

En este caso el Tribunal podrá mandar, sin la órden de un Secretario de Estado, la inmediata entrega del acusado al Comisionado autorizado para hacerse cargo de él, ó mantenerle en prision hasta que dicha órden del Secretario de Estado sea expedida.

ARTICLE VIII.

A fugitive criminal may be apprehended under a warrant issued by any Police Magistrate, Justice of the Peace, or other competent authority in either country, on such information or complaint, and such evidence, or after such proceedings as would, in the opinion of the authority issuing the warrant, justify the issue of a warrant if the crime had been committed or the person convicted in that part of the dominions of the two Contracting Parties in which the Magistrate, Justice of the Peace, or other competent authority exercises jurisdiction: provided, however, that, in the United Kingdom, the accused shall, in such case, be sent as speedily as possible before a Police Magistrate in London. He shall, in accordance with this Article, be discharged, as well in Spain as in the United Kingdom, if, within the term of thirty days, a requisition for extradition shall not have been made by the Diplomatic Agent of his country, in accordance with the stipulations of this Treaty.

The same rule shall apply to the cases of persons accused or convicted of any of the crimes or offences specified in this Treaty, and committed on the high seas on board any vessel of either country which

may come into a port of the other.

ARTICLE IX.

If the fugitive criminal who has been committed to prison be not surrendered and conveyed away within two months after such committal, or within two months after the adverse decision of the Court upon the return to a writ of habeas corpus in the United Kingdom, he shall be discharged from custody, unless sufficient cause be shown to the contrary.

Así en España como en el Reino Unido, el detenido, con arreglo á este Artículo, será puesto en liber- tad si en un término de treinta dias no ha sido formulada demanda de extradicion por el Repre- sentante Diplomático de su pais, con arreglo á las estipulaciones de este Tratado.

La misma regla se aplicará á los casos de per- sonas acusadas ó condenadas por cualquiera de los crímenes ó delitos especificados en este Tratado, y cometidos en alta mar á bordo de un buque de uno de los dos países que llegase á un puerto del

otro.

ARTICULO IX.

In these cases the provisions of this Treaty shall be observed as far as possible by the respect- ive Governors or chief authorities, who, however, shall be at liberty either to grant the extradition or to refer the decision of the matter to the Governments of their respective countries.

ARTICLE XI.

In cases where it may be necessary, the Spanish Governments shall be represented at the English Courts by the Law Officers of the Crown, and the English Government in the Spanish Court by the Public Prosecutor (Ministerio Fiscal).

ARTICLE XIII.

If the individual claimed by one of the two High Contracting Parties, in pursuance of the present Treaty should be also claimed by one or several other powers, on account of other crimes or offences committed upon their respective terri- tories, his extradition shall be granted to that State whose demand is earliest in date; unless any other arrangement should exist between the different Governments to determine the preference, either on account of the gravity of the crime or offence, or for any other reason.

ARTICLE XIV.

pro-

ARTICULO XI.

En los casos en que fuere necessario, el Gobierno. Español será representado ante los Tribunales. Británicos por los Oficiales Legales de la Corona, y el Gobierno Británico ante los Tribunales Espa- ñoles por el Ministerio Fiscal.

Los Gobiernos respectivos prestarán assistencia á los Representantes Diplomáticos que la reclamen para la custodia y seguridad de las personas sujetas á extradicion.

ARTICULO XII.

ARTICULO XIII.

Cuando la persona reclamada por una de las Altas Partes Contratantes, en virtud del presente Tratado, fuese reclamada asimismo por uno ó varios otros Estados á causa de crímenes ó delitos cometidos en sus territórios respectivos, su extra- dicion será concedida al Estado cuya demanda sea de fecha anterior; á menos que no exista entre los diferentes Gobiernos un arreglo para determinar la preferencia, ya por la gravedad del crimen ó delito, ya por cualquier otro motivo.

ARTICULO XIV.

Cuando la persona reclamada estuviese en- causada, ó hubiese sido condenada por un crimen ó delito cometido en el Estado en que se hubiese refugiado, su extradicion podrá diferirse hasta que haya sido puesta en libertad con arreglo á las leyes.

En el caso de que dicha persona reclamada se hallase acusada ó detenida en el pais en que se hubiese refugiado por obligaciones contraidas respecto de personas particulares, la extradicion se llevará sin embargo á cabo.

Colonial Secretary's Office,

Hongkong, 3rd January, 1879.

·SUPREME COURT,

4th March, 1879.

Summary of cases deserving notice tried at the Supreme Court before the Chief Justice during the Criminal Sessions which commenced on the 18th February, 1879.

1. Tang A-hoi was convicted and sentenced to imprisonment for 2 years with hard labour and to be kept in solitary confinement for 3 months on 3 separate occasions of one month each for unlawfully detaining a child under the age of 14 years. The evidence against this man only showed that he was in possession of the child in Hongkong. Stealing children is a very wicked act for which the law of England will punish severely every guilty person.

2. Li A-tsún, convicted of a similar offence, committed under the aggravated circumstances that he was a relative and brought the child from Canton to Hongkong, was sentenced to 2 years' hard labour, and to be twice privately whipped, receiving 25 strokes on each occasion.

SUMMARY JURISDICTION COURT,

4th March, 1879.

On the 15th ultimo, His Honour Mr. Justice SNOWDEN tried a case in which a Chinaman by the name of Ch'an.Ü sued Ng Man-k'wan of the Tak-mi Hong for $1,000, being damages for wrongful arrest and imprisonment from the 21st to the 25th of February, 1878. This case arose out of a suit which was heard in the Original Jurisdiction of the Supreme Court in February, 1878, when Mr. Ng Man-k'wan sued the partners of the Un-hang-li Hong, (of which Ch'an Ü was one). The plaintiff in the present case sought to recover damages for being arrested as a part- ner of the firm. He now alleges that he was only a servant, and on account of the imprison- ment, he had been unable to obtain employment. The partnership book of the firm was produced, which was in the hands of the Official Assignee, the firm Ün-hang-li having become bankrupt, and showed that the plaintiff was a partner. His Lordship gave judgment for the defendant, and committed the plaintiff to prison for fourteen days for perjury.

Let all men who read this learn that they must tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth in an English Court of justice. Every witness declares that he will speak the truth, and after that is done, to say what is false is a great offence, as it is an insult to the Court and Judge, and renders the offender liable to very heavy punishment.

of examination of Grant-in-Aid Schools, is pu-

The total number of schools examined amounted to 17 as against 14 in 1877 and 12 in 1876. The total number of children presented amounted to 557 as against 459 in 1877 and 390 in 1876. The passes amounted to 95 per cent. as against 86 per cent. in 1877 and 77 per cent. in 1876. Accordingly the amount total earned by the

·Grant-in-Aid Schools amounts to $4,811.53, as against $3,752.90 in 1877 and $1,707.00 in 1876. The difference in the amounts annually earned is caused, in the first instance, by the increase of the value of passes introduced in 1877, and in the second instance by a steady increase from year to year in the number of schools placed under the Grant-in-Aid system, in the number of scholars presented for examination, and the percentage of scholars who passed successfully.

The amount total provided in the Estimates

for 1879 is $4,500. Of this sum we have already spent $225 in gratuities for the best Masters of the Government.outside Schools. Adding thereto $4,811.53,now required for the Grant-in-Aid Schools, we exceed the amount provided by $536.53. There was a similar excess in 1878, but it must always be guess-work estimating beforehand the sum required for Grants-in-Aid, as it is impossible to tell beforehand how many children will be presented and what the average attendance throughout the year will be.

I did not require an Assistant Examiner, but as regards the classification of the merits of the needlework in Girls' Schools, the following Ladies kindly undertook to act as Judges, viz.: Mrs. BURDON, Mrs. KIDD, Mrs. HUTCHINSON, Mrs. GRUNDY, Mrs. G. SHARP, Mrs. U. M. NORonha, Mrs. and Miss CALDWELL.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 5TH MARCH,1879.

POST OFFICE NOTICE.

Tea Musters.

Persons who send Musters of Tea through the

Post in tins are requested to have them made

flat or square instead of round, as it is impossi-

ble to pack round tins securely in the mail bags.

It is believed that the tea will travel more safely in flat tins, which are not so liable as round ones

to be bulged in.

4 or 3 by 1 inches is suggested as a good

size. The tins should not have sharp corners.

Postmaster General.

NOTICE TO MARINERS. [No. 7.]

INDIA-WEST COAST-GULF OF CUTCH. Fixed Light at Entrance to Toona Creek.

Information has been received from the Political Agent at Cutch Mandvee that a light was exhibited on the 5th September 1878 from a light-house recently erected on the swampy land south of Tekra island, as a guide to vessels making for Toona, north shore of the Gulf of Cutch.

The light is a fixed white light, shown from an ordinary lantern elevated 17 feet above high water, and should be visible in clear weather from a distance of 6 miles.

The light tower—which is built of stone, and 23 feet high-stands on the eastern edge of a low mangrove swamp about three-quarters of a mile south of Tekra island, Toona creek. At high tides this swamp is overflowed, which gives the light-house the appearance of being built in the water.

Position (Admiralty Chart): Latitude 22° 55′ 30′′ N., Longitude 70° 7′ 10′′ E.

SUPREME COURT,

HONGKONG, 11th March, 1879.

The following cases were also, in addition to those published in the last Gazette, tried at the

Criminal Sessions for the month of February.

1. Ch'an Sz was charged with stealing at night a box on board a junk at Yáu-ma Tí, which had been drawn up on the shore. He was found guilty. As he had been twice previously con- victed, he was sentenced to 3 years' penal servi- tude, and as at the time he committed the offence he was armed with a large knife, a very dan- gerous weapon, he was also sentenced to be whipped 25 strokes with a rattan.

2. Ch'an Shing and Lam Kai were convicted of stealing a quantity of clothing during the night, in a dwelling house. Ch'an Shing was sentenced to one year's imprisonment with hard labour. Lam Koi, who had been convicted twice before, was sentenced to 4 years' penal servitude.

3. Tang Hing and Tang Lung were charged with stealing clothing from a dwelling house, and also with receiving it knowing it to be stolen. Tang Hing was found guilty of stealing it and Tang Lung of receiving part of the stolen pro- perty. Tang Lung received a very good charac- ter from his master, and as it was his first offence was punished with only 3 months' imprisonment with hard labour. Tang Hing, who had been convicted six times of many bad offences before, and was also convicted at these Sessions of receiv- ing a watch knowing it to have been stolen, was sentenced to 12 years' penal servitude as an example to other men.

MAGISTRACY, HONGKONG,

11th March, 1879.

Summary of cases deserving notice decided at

the Magistracy of Hongkong, from the 1st to the

8th March, 1879, both days inclusive.

Larcenies.

1. Kwok A-chéung, a cook, was convicted on

the 3rd instant of stealing a purse containing

$2.60 and 3 pawn tickets, the property of one

Wai A-kit, and sentenced to three months' im- prisoment with hard labour.

2. Tò A-kwo, described as having no occupa- tion, was convicted on the 4th instant of stealing a pair of shoes, and sentenced to four months' imprisonment with hard labour.

3. Ts'oi A-hing, a boatman, was convicted on the 6th instant of stealing a pair of trousers at Shek-t'ong-tsui, the property of Luk A-wai, and sentenced to two months' imprisonment with hard labour.

4. Kò A-tam, a coolie, was convicted on the 6th instant of stealing a large piece of timber from the "Hò-lung" timber yard at Mong-k'ok- tsui, and sentenced to three months' imprisonment with hard labour.

Embezzlement.

5. Tang A-pò, a coolie, was convicted of con- verting to his own use on the 28th December, 1878, $2, being part of some money he had been entrusted by his master to take to his family

house. The prisoner was sentenced to six

months' imprisoment with hard labour. He was

identified by the Gaol authorities as an old offender.

Ulauful possession of property.

6. Ch'an A-nang a coolin, was convicted on the 1st instant of having possession of two baskets

of bricks for which he could give no satisfactory account, and fined 10s., or twenty-one days' im- prisonment with hard labour.

POST OFFICE NOTICE.

On the 9th November, 1878, when the S. S. Charlton was leaving for Port Darwin, Cooktown, and Sydney, some Chinese put a packet on board addressed to Chau Li, Cooktown, which con- tained 92 letters for Chinese there. This packet was overearried to Sydney, and sent back from Sydney to Brisbane. Having become open in the transit, the 92 letters were sent on separately to Cooktown, each one being charged 12 cents. These letters would probably be refused by the addressees.

Chinese traders are warned to bring their let- ters to the Post Office, so as to avoid such delays and charges as those described above.

POST OFFICE NOTICE.

Tea Musters.

Persons who send Musters of Tea through the

Post in tins are requested to have them made

flat or square instead of round, as it is impossi-

ble to pack round tins securely in the mail bags.

It is believed that the tea will travel more safely

in flat tins, which are not so liable as round ones

to be bulged in.

4 by 3 by 1d inches is suggested as a good

size. "The fins should not have sharp corners.

The Government of France have given notice for the termination of the following Commercial Treaties with this Country:-

The Treaty of Commerce of the 23rd of January, 1860. Additional Article of 25th of February, 1860.

Second Additional Article of 27th of June, 1860. -

First Supplementary Convention of 12th of October, 1860.

The following despatches have beeu laid before the Legislative Council.

Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 15th March, 1879.

[No. 94.]

His Excellency Governor Pope Hennessy, C.M.G., to The Right Honourable Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Bart., M.P.

GOVERNMENT HOUSE, HONGKONG, 28th September, 1878. SIR,--I have the honour to enclose, for your information, copies of some Minutes I felt it necessary to make respecting the night duties of the Hongkong Police, together with a report of Mr. DEANE, the Captain Superintendent, and some returns on the subject.

2. Upon the official report of a Burglary committed in the Central District of Victoria, on the 29th of last month, I made a Minute asking for the details of the night duties of the Police Force, and the number of men in each beat on the 1st of September, 1878, and at the corresponding date in 1877 and 1876. In reply to this Minute, I received a return relating to the principal police district; where- upon I called, on the 9th of September, for similar information respecting the other Police districts of the Colony.

3. Accompanying those returns were certain volumes giving the details for each day and night of the Police duties since the year 1876. The returns were further explained by a brief report from Mr. DEANE, dated the 3rd September.

4. I understand it was the first time since the Police Commission of 1871, that these details of night duties had been called for, or in any way brought to the notice of the Executive.

5. I regretted to find that instead of the number of men on the night beats having been increased with the increasing population of the Colony, they were being diminished, and, upon the whole, I was struck with the manifestly inadequate strength of the night beats and patrols for such a place as the Town of Victoria. Accordingly I have instructed Mr. DEANE to restore the night beats and patrols to the maximum strength of the year 1876; to make weekly reports in future of the night duties, and not to alter the number in any particular district without specially reporting it.

136

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH MARCH, 1879.

6. Furthermore, I have asked him to prepare a revised plan of night beats and patrols of about thirty-three per cent. greater strength than the insufficient plan hitherto in practice; and this revised plan, I trust, with the advice and assistance of my Council, to bring into operation almost immediately.

7. In my Despatch No. 23 of 27th February, 1878, I informed Lord CARNARVON of my intention of rendering, as far as possible, the whole of the Police an armed Force. I have proceeded slowly and with due caution, in entrusting arms to the Chinese Police, and, up to this, not more than thirty or forty have been given rifles by Mr. CREAGH and Mr. DEANE. It may be possible, however, before long, to have all the night patrols of the Chinese Police armed with revolvers.

I have, &c.,

Minute by His Excellency the Governor, on the Police Report of the Burglary in the Caine Road on the night of the 29th of August.

I should be glad to get from the Captain Superintendent a Report of the Night Duties of the Police Force, specifying the beats, number of men, &c., at the present date, and a Statement showing the similar facts of both this time last year, and this time in 1876.

1st September, 1878.

J. POPE HENNESSY,

Governor.

Minute by the Acting Colonial Secretary.

Forwarded to Mr. DEANE for a report.

J. M. PRICE,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

2nd September, 1878.

Report called for by His Excellency the Governor on the Night Duties of the Police.

I have the honour to forward a Return of the night Duties of the Police. The time from 6 P.M. of 30th August to 6 A.M. of 31st August has been taken as a sample.

2. I enclose a Comparative Return of the same period for three years for the Central District. The other Districts had similar duties and men in these three years.

3. I enclose the Central District Duty Books for August, 1876, 1877, and a copy of the 12 hours above alluded to in 1878 as the original book is in use.

4. I also forward the rough Returns for 10th August of the men in the Force, together with a fair abstract of the same.

5. The Beat Book enclosed has virtually been unaltered since 1874. It will be observed that large as those beats are, I have rarely enough men to fill them all, in which case one man takes charge

of two beats.

W. M. DEANE, Captain Superintendent of Police.

11th September, 1878.

Minute by His Excellency the Governor.

1. I return the Police Books-Volumes eleven and twelve, showing the duties for 1876 and 1877-which I have perused, together with the Report of Mr. DEANE and the Returns he was good enough to prepare at my request on the night duties of the Police Force.

2. Those documents confirm the suspicions I entertained that the night beats in this Colony are undermanned.

3. They also show that in the most important District the number of the Police on regular beats between midnight and six o'clock in the morning has beer. reduced since 1876, in the case of the European Force, from 14 to 8, and in the case of the Chinese Force from about 20 to 15.

4. The Captain Superintendent also says that he has rarely enough men to fill all the beats, and that in such cases he has to order one man to take charge of two beats.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH MARCH, 1879.

139

5. Let the night beats and patrols in the Victoria District be at once restored to the maximum strength of 1876; and let the Captain Superintendent prepare for my consideration a revised scheme of night beats and patrols of about thirty-three per cent. greater strength than the maximum I refer to. 6. In future I should like to see weekly returns of the night duties, and to receive a special report before the numbers are altered in any particular district.

CULTIVATION OF THE "EUCALYPTUS" IN HONGKONG.

Minute by His Excellency the Governor.

should wish to see a special report by Mr. FORD on the growth of the "Eucalyptus" in Hong- kong. specimens I have seen in various parts of the Colony are not as flourishing as could be desired, but it is possible that other varieties besides the "Eucalyptus Globulosa" may be more suited to this limate-the "Eucalyptus Amygdalene" or the "Eucalyptus Citriodora" for instance.·

J. POPE HENNESSY.

by the Superintendent of the Botanical Gardens to the Honourable the Colonial Secretary.

o have to report that the condition of the trees at this time, nearly three years after not promise well for the success of the Blue Gum in this Colony. Out of the 400 which , about 100 only are now alive, and of those the majority are small and sickly. In all re the rees were planted in soil in its hard natural state (the holes made were only about two fee. square) the growth has been exceedingly weak, as a rule there being only a single unbranched stem about six ft high. But where the trees were planted in soft soil that had been artificially loosened, as by fill 1o in near to the buildings, and in the earth pit on the lower side of the Aberdeen Station, and where these situations are sheltered, the growth has been rapid and side shoots developed abundantly, but even of these trees the stems are too weak to support the heads. If the leading shoots of the trees had been shortened occasionally during 1877 and last year, no doubt the stems would have been

fficiently strong by this time to support the heads without the assistance of

to the trees.

which are still atte

props From the facts

'e us, I conclude that the climate or soil of Hongkong is totally unfit for the cultivation of Eucaly Gbulus for timber, but if the Eucalyptus has anti-malarious properties in a greater degree than o

s-which, however, is much doubt by many scientific men-and it should be considered a sable to make further trials of it here on at account, I believe that it might succeed if grown as bunes, which might be done by a proper system of pruning, and if the soil were loosened well before planting.

Eucalyptus Amygdalina and Eucalyptus Citriodora have not, to my knowledge, yet been tried in this Colony, but the latter would be likely to succeed fairly as it is indegenous to Queensland, which po sses a climate approaching the one of Hongkong. The former is found in New South Wales, ria, and Tasmania-the two latter being also the native countries of Eucalyptus Globulus-therefore not likely that it would succeed here.

Eucalyptus Platyphylla and Eucalyptus Maculata, the former indigenous to Queensland and North ustralia, the latter native of Queensland and New South Wales, have done very well indeed within our garden; they were planted about the same time as the 400 Blue Gums. Both kinds are now about 24 feet higa, their average growth being about seven feet per year.

Minute by the Honourable the Colonial Secretary.

CHARLES FORD,

Superintendent.

The Blue Gum has been tried in Mauritius and failed in the same way as here. It was believed that the climate was too hot.

21st March, 1879.

Submitted,

W. H. MARSH.

Minute by His Excellency the Governor.

Though it has also failed here as a tree, yet Mr. FORD's suggestion of planting the Eucalyptus Globulus as a bush may be tried, and also the experiment of growing the Eucalyptus Citriodora as it is found indigenous in Queensland. Mr. FORD can take the necessary steps for getting seeds from Queensland so as to have 4,000 Seedlings of the Eucalyptus Citriodora planted in Hongkong as Hoon as possible, in the proner planting season.

3. Whilst the schools placed under Govern-

ment supervision, and more or less supported by Government funds, have, as far as numbers are concerned, barely held their own, there appears

to have been a high rate of attendance in other

schools, not subject to Government supervision or aid. A census taken with the help of the District Watchmen showed that there were in town 1,252 scholars in private Chinese schools, to which must be added about 120 scholars in private schools in the villages. From a report published early in 1878, supplemented by the information I gathered from statements made at the close of the year regarding St. Joseph's College, I estimate the number of scholars in the various Roman Catho-

lic institutions of the Colony in 1878 to amount to about 1,120. Thus we have a total of 2,492

children who attended schools not subject to Government supervision or aid.

4. The feature of the year, in educational

respects, was certainly the great impetus given to the study of English. The warmth with which His Excellency the Governor, on all possi-

ble occasions, advocated the promotion of a knowledge of the English language and of Eng-

lish speaking among the native population of Hongkong, naturally bore its fruit. The Gov-

ernment Cerral School altered its time table, devoting to the study of English the early part of each day, forterly allotted to Chinese studies,

and gave to qustioning in English and to English colloquial onversation an amount of at- tention it had never efore received in Central

School. As to the Covernment schoo the Central School, among hich' Aber previously been the ony Anglo-Chinese

English teaching was introduced in the course of the year in three diffeent places, viz., in Wong: na-ch‘ung, Wán-tsai nd Sai-ying-phun, and final ly the establishment of a Method Class with a view to train Chinese eachers of English for em- ployment in the Villas Schools was begun, in connection with the Central School. That the in- habitants of a small har let like Wong-nai-ch'ung shold volunteer to cotribute $5 per month to- wards 't

-penses of the school, hitherto entire-

ly defra by the Government, and that they should pulate that English as well as Chinese be taught the school, is a most remarkable fact, especiay so if it be considered that for years Pst the standing complaint in all the annual reports of the Education Department was the utter indifference of the villagers with regard to education. The people of Wong-nai-ch'ung paid their quota regularly, throughout the year, and the school, which at the beginning of the year, when Chinese only was taught, numbered 9 scho- lars, of whom 2 were the sons of the master, counted an average attendance of 26 boys ever since English was introduced. Outside the Gov- ernment schools also, the special appreciation in which English teaching was held by the Head of the Government made itself felt and was warmly "esponded to by a sudden increase of private rols, both day-schools and evening-schools, +ed by Chinese or Eurasian teachers, among

whom I may specially mention Mr. GEORGE · CHAPE. Mr. CHAPE conducted last year a private

day-school, unsupported by private or other

means, except the fees of $2 per mensem paid by each scholar. He had an average attendance of 80 scholars, each finding his own school ma- terials. The importance of this fact will be understood if it be considered that the Central School, with an average attendance of 459 schol- ars, charges $0.50 per mensem in the lower classes and $1:00 per mensem in the higher classes, but supplies each scholar liberally with school- materials (even Dictionaries included) and costs the Government, apart from the value of the house rent, $27.54 per annum for each scholar. At the examination, lately held, of candidates for admission into the Central School, it was found that out of 114 candidates found qualified

for admission, all but 39 had been studying English in 1878, being able to read English fairly well. Among the schools from which these

came I may specially mention, besides St. Paul's

College and the school held by Mr. CHAPE, the

private schools conducted by the following mas-

ters, Mr. Lo YAM-T'ING, HO TSING-NGAM, CH'AN TS'AN-IP, LUK TIT-FO, KWAN YUN-FAT, Ts'ü KUN-NAM, CHU LUK, FUNG SEUNG-NAM, CHÜ These facts are

I must premise that, as a locum tenens, I did not feel justified to examine the whole school myself at the end of the year, because I was informed that the practice had been all along for the Head Master and the masters. in committee to conduct the annual examinations of the school themselves.

The Central School may be divided into two departments, one for English and one for Chinese teaching, an equal amount of time being devoted every day to both languages.

To begin with the English department of the Central School; there was in 1878, with an aver- age monthly enrolment of 459 scholars, an effective staff of 4 European masters, 6 native assistant rasters and 3 paid monitors. Apart from the monitors, therefore, and including among the masters both Europeans and Chinese, we had about 46 scholars to each master. Considering,

however, that none of the assistant masters can be said to pronounce English perfectly and to speak it idiomatically, it is well to note that there were in reality about 115 scholars to each European master. Moreover the native masters being per- mitted to accept outside employment when off duty-a matter which during the present scarcity

of English speaking native masters cannot be helped-used to give every day, morning and

evening, a great portion of their time to mercantile engagements or private tuition, and did not there- fore come as fresh to their work in school as might be desired. Through the alteration in the time table which was introduced by order of His Excellency the Governor in May last year, when the early morning of every day, formerly occupied by Chinese teaching, was appropriated for English teaching, there is little objection now to be raised on that score.

The European masters are competent men, and all the masters without exception I found attend- ing to their duties with exemplary punctuality and fidelity. Altogether the general organisation of the school and the masterly discipline main- tained in almost every department of it, seems to me well-nigh perfection. But as regards one or two details and the method of teaching adopted in the school, there is considerable room for im- provements.

In the first instance, in the Preparatory Classes, where the first rudiments of English pronunciation re taught, the teaching of English was left in the ands of native assistants, whose own pronuncia on is by no means perfect. Next, there is a stem in vogue in the Central School of ling

p, all through the nine classes of the school; every seat that happens to f" vacant more than two days, in consequence of which the Pre

paratory School receives a new contingent ar

regard this system as untair to th m

whom the consequent disparity of atta

among their pupils throws additional trouble, and.

as unfair to the scholars themselves, the continuity

of whose studies is thus arbitrarily interrupted. But the matter has a far more serious aspect when it is considered that anyhow the classes are too large for effective teaching and especially that the boys sit so crowded, in every class, that not only have they no elbow room in writing, but copying and prompting by whispers is absolutely im- possible to prevent. The evil of this overcrowding is most conspicuous during Chinese lessons, where from 80 to 90 boys are crowded into one class under one teacher. Thus the moral lesson of self-reliance, which the school otherwise might teach, is lost, habits of dishonesty and deception are fostered, and moreover, in a hot climate like this, among a people among whom skin diseases are naturally prevalent, such overcrowding of the classes becomes positively dangerous to health as vell as to morals. Three out of the five school- oms are very lofty and provide sufficient cubic But the rule observed in England, of hitting one boy only for every 8 square feet,

As to the method of teaching adopted in the

Central School, I am of opinion that the school is, on the whole, taught too much like an English school for English boys, in comparative disregard

of the fact that the majority of the boys neither speak English nor hear English spoken outside

the school, and that, as Mr. STEWART stated, out of 453 boys at the beginning of last year as many as 336 did not speak English at all and only 8 could speak it idiomatically. The school-books also, which were made for boys in Ireland, who bring to school a fair knowledge of English colloquial, are ill adapted for use in teaching Chinese boys, who come to school to learn English colloquial in the first instance. These school- books are far too difficult to begin with, contain too little colloquial and have too little of regular gradation, to make it easy for masters, some of whom are unable to speak Chinese and thereby prevented explaining peculiarities of idiom in an intelligible manner, to teach much English speak- ing. There is further too little attention given, in my opinion, to the practice of English com- position and to written translations from Chinese into English, which valuable means of teaching English to foreigners is at present entirely rele- gated to home exercises. English composition and written translations from Chinese into English might be used in the school as a means of teaching grammar practically, by requiring the boys, under the eyes of the master, to make and form simple and eventually complex sentences, in various ways, so as to make them thoroughly understand the practical application of the rules of grammar to the art of speaking and writing correctly. Finally the teaching of such subjects as G netry, Alge and Chemistry seems to me of dtful utility long as the majority of the hoyo.co e the Centra School, after six years of scholing, without being able to speak English, and as long as History re- mains entirely excluded from the range of sub- jects taught in the school.

As regards the Chinese department of the Central School, there is a division, made necessary by the presence of non-Chinese boys in the school, between the so called Anglo-Chir ese and Chinese classes, the former being intended for boys whose native language is other than Chinese. The pre- sence of foreign boys in the Central School is, on the whole, more an impediment than an advantage, as those foreign boys who speak English idioma- tically are too few, and, in the absence of a re- creation ground, have too little opportunity to enable the other boys to learn much English from them conversationally; whilst on the other hand foreign boys are as a rule not amenable to dis- cipline when under the tuition of native masters and necessitate special arrangements to teach them the Chinese written language, as they cannot keep pace with the Chinese boys, and require the presence of an English master during these Chinese lessons so as to maintain discipline.

Now as to the method of teaching the Chinese language, adopted in the Central School, the de- fect I noticed in the English department, viz., of following too much the methods of teaching in

vogue in England and in English schools, is here

even more glaring. The experience of centuries

has taught the Chinese a method of teaching based

on the peculiarities of the Chinese language. As

it is a language with tones, it is considered an

imperative necessity, all over the Empire, that boys should read and repeat their lessons aloud.

This is prohibited in the Central School. As the

Chinese writen language is devoid of an alphabet

and consists of 44,000 different characters, 6,000 to 8,000 ofwhich are indispensable for the require-

ments o an educated man, and as there are no

plicated inflections taxing the intellect, it is an indisputably patent fact that an acquaintance

with the written language of China depends al-

most exclusively on the cultivation of a good

memory. For this reason it has been found ne- cessary in every school in China to give to tech- nical memoriter exercises an unusual amount of time, and as boys differ far more widely in elasti-

city of memory than in range of mental compre- hension, collective teaching in reading lessons is considered impractical in China, and boys are taught to read Chinese individually, going on,

each his own way, as fast or as slow as his memory

will carry him. Whilst therefore in all the schools in China class teaching is reserved for explanation of the classics, for teaching copy-writing and com- osition, it is applied in the Central School even the teaching of reading, in a modified form.

consequence is, that the results of Chinese

ng in the Central School are extremely and the teachers themselves, two of whom

graduates, are thoroughly dissatisfied with : system adopted. An English bo

pls cumacters as 成化年製, which Chinese

girlss after three years' teaching, wrote from dic- tion under the eyes of His Excellency the

vernor. And the best Chinese boys in the

ool, when I gave them a passage from one

Chinese reading books, which had been rea explained in class, to translate into English

allowing them to use Chinese-English Dictiona- ries, could not do it without being allowed the use of the Commentar And when that was placed in their hands t none could translate the passage correctly, and every one showed that even the Chinese Commentary was unintelligible to them. It is my conviction that if ( inese is to be taught properly in the Central School it must be taught according to Chinese and not ac- cording to foreign methods.

As to religious teaching in the Central School, I noticed myself, and the Chinese; masters ac- knowledged in conference, that th teaching given in the Central School is really not secular teach- ing, pure and simple. In English reading lessons, 's are used which contain religious lessons, se are invariably skipped. The fact that

the moment a chapter is reached containing any

Bible story or where the concluding sentence of the chapter supplies a moral with the slightest

reference to anything specifically Christian, that chapter or that concluding paragraph is at once ta- booed and the next following chapter taken, is most unfortunate, as it impresses the boys, in the strongest possible manner, with the notion that Christianity itself is discountenanced in the Central

School. On the other hand, Chinese reading books used in the Central School are replete with arguments and exhortations in favour of ances-

tral worship, contain a good deal of Buddhist and Tauist teaching, are even, as in the case of Mencius, calculated to foster a decidedly anti-

foreign spirit, yet these passages are not skipped. On the contrary, the Chinese masters told me that

they, in oral explanation, endeavour to bring home this kind of teaching to the hearts and minds of their pupils. Nor can the masters be

blamed for doing so, as they conscientiously

believe in such doctrines themselves. To counter- act the manifest unfairness of this state of things, there were some years ago Chinese school-books prepared by a Government School-book Com- mittee, supplying the rudiments of secular know- ledge, of which these Chinese class books above mentioned are devoid, and giving also the ele- ments of Christian religious teaching. But these Government school-books are not taught by the Chinese masters in the Central School.

The cost of the Central School will be found detailed in Table IV. It will be seen from that table that the total of expenditure for the Cen- tral School was $11,865.58年) against $9,945.87 in 1877, showing an increase of $1,919.71. In

explanation of this apparent excess I have to state that on account of the Head Master's-ab- sence on leave, on half salary, an extra vote was necessary for half of the salary of the present Acting Second Master ($630), and that the Act- ing Third Master, being incapacitated for duty through an affection of the eyes, was on furlough on full salary for 6 months, during which time his place was filled by special assistance obtained

at a cost of $900. There were some further extra expenses incurred in connection with the training school for three young men attached to

the staff of the Central School during the second

half of the year, two of whom are now employed as teachers of English in outside schools.

6. The Government schools outside the Cen- tral School do not give much occasion for remark. The Aberdeen school had to be closed in the middle of the year owing to the incompetency and neglect of the master, in consequence of which the villagers preferred to send their children to the three other schools in the village, or to Stanley, or to Canton to school and to pay there for their education rather than having them gratui.ously under the charge of a master who did not attend to his duties properly. But although thus the only outside school in which ir, former years English had been taught was closed, there were, as I remarked above, three other schools provided with English teaching, viz. :--- Wong-Lai-ch'ung,

But I feel confident that in Wán-tsai and Sai-ying-p‘ún it will sooner or later be found necessary to enlarge the teaching staff in order to meet the demand for English teaching in these localities. All the other Gov-

ernment schools, outside the Central School,

give only vernacular teaching, and the amount

and quality of instruction they provide is no

better than that of an ordinary village school in

the interior of China. Some of these schools are

called Aided Schools, because the original ar-

rangement was that for each of these schools the

respective village community should provide one

half of the teacher's salary in kind and the Gov-

nment provide the other half in money. In

"ity however the teacher levies a rate on each

fixed principles, it is high time to alter those

rules and make them stricter throughout. If this is done, there will then be no reason to reduce

the value of passes which otherwise would seem far too high for the requirements of schools giving vernacular teaching only.

There have been many complaints in the course of the year on the part of managers of higher schools, giving not merely vernacular teaching, but a European Education with or without Chi- nese teaching in addition, as to the comparatively

small value of passes in such expensive schools

scheme, introduced but as a tentative measure, requires revision also with a view to enable those Protestant and Roman Catholic schools of the Colony which at present find themselves prevent- ed partaking of the benefits of this, in its leading principles, excellent scheme. One great objection is the requirement of 200 daily attendances of 4 hours each at secular instruction.

There are other objections to the Grant-in-aid system. The greatest in my own mind, and which I have never heard any one mention yet, is this, that hitherto the Grant-in-aid system has entirely failed to gain for itself the appreciation of the native community. Iknow of 58 schools kept and paid by Chinese residents, and if we add the night schools for English teaching, the number of schools, all secular school ept by the Chinese community will scarcely befund o fall short of a hundred. Nevertheless there is not one such school, managed by Chinese, under the Grant-in- aid scheme. The reason is not that the Chinese object to take the money of the Government, nor would they object to take the money on the basis of a strict examination by competent examiners at the end of the year. What they object to is the amount of official interference the scheme

implies and the complicated set of conditions by which it is hedged in. A scheme like the Inter- mediate Education Act (Ireland) for 1878, which

is also based on the principle of payment for results in secular teaching, but has none of the officious meddlesomeness of the Hongkong scheme, would be far more likely, in my opinion, to gain the sympathy of all classes of the com- munity and stimulate education with true im- partiality and genuine liberality by enlisting under its banner in harmonious emulation the now divided camps of secular and religious edu-

cationists of the Colony, the native as well as the foreign schools on the whole island.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND APRIL, 1879.

GOVERNMENT CENTRAL SCHOOL,

HONGKONG, 13th January, 1879.

SIR, I have the honour to forward to you the Annual Report for the Central School for 1878.

2. On the departure of Mr. STEWART for England on leave, several important changes were made in the Staff of tile schoo School. The first was the separation of the duties of the Inspector of Schools from those of the Head Master; the second, the appointment of Mr. ARTHUR as the Acting Second Master, and of Mr. MURRAY late of the Independent College, Taunton, as Fifth Master, in order to compensate for the absence of Mr. BALL, who in consequence of illness was permanently incapacitated for duty. In November, Mr. PIERCY, the Fourth Master, acting on the advice of his medical adviser, resigned, and Mr. MCKINNEY, of the Surveyor General's Department, was at once tranferred to the School.

3. It was natural to expect that these numerous changes would inconvenience and retard the progress of the School to a certain extent; I have however to report that the various masters speedily settled down to their work, and the work went steadily forward without interruption.

4. As the absence through sickness among the Staff has been less than in former years, and as the duties of the Inspector of Schools did not trench upon the time of the Head Master, the work according to the time-table was more continuous, and therefore a higher standard at the annual examinations just concluded has been attained. ⚫ have reason also to anticipate in the year upon which we have entered even a higher degree of attainment, when the School derives the full advantages of the services of Mr. MAY, who has been recently appointed to the Thd Master-ship vacated by Mr. BALL. 5. A steady attempt has been made to facilitate the acquirement of English Speaking during the year. I may mention that it has always been a rule of the School that English Masters in front of their classes were on no account to speak Chinese unless compelled. In addition to this, an entry to the following effect has been made in the time-table, that in ery lesson, whether taught by an English Master, or a Chinese Assistant Master, questioning in English was to be employed not only as a test, but in order to facilitate the acquisition of Colloquial English. In the lower classes, the progress, in Colloquial, as far as regards the subject matter of their lessons, has been most marked. I even attribute the high marks obtained by the pupils in the written examinations partially to this source. The amount of matter read this year may not have equalled that of previous years, but the comprehension of what has been read has been far more general over all the classes, as the papers in translation from English into Chinese and from Chinese into English sufficiently show. 6. In the first class I insisted upon the repetition of from six to eight lines from Standard prose authors morning. This I made the subject of corversation either between the boys and myself or between the boys themselves. every By this mea I was able to provide subject matter for practice in English Speaking. The result so far has been satisfactory, I anticipate that when the system has had time to develop, and the boys now forming the lower classes have been du romoted to the Upper School, that English Speaking will become very much more general provided that ufficiently long at School for the purpose. I also have devoted an hour a week for Colloquial through

W. H. MARSH,

The Court finds:-(1). That the British Steamer Yesso, Official No. 48,343, left Swatow at about 6.10 on the evening of the 17th of March with a crew consisting of 63 persons; she had on board about ninety passengers, $100,000 in specie, 200 chests of opium, 50 tons of lead and a general cargo, and was wrecked on the White Rocks at about 11.15 of the same night in attempting to pass through the Channel between the Lamock Island and the White Rocks.

(2). At 10.45 P.M. the Master assumed his position to be the Lamock Island bearing E. by N. distant about 6 miles and subsequent events give reasonable proof that this was correct.

(3). At this position the Master seems to have been deceived in his estimation of the distance of

(4). From the evidence of all the Witnesses examined, the night appears to have been exceedingly dark and the Court is of opinion that the Master should have used every means of ascertaining his position accurately, which he had means of doing, and which he neglected to do.

(5). The Court therefore adjudges that the Certificate of Competency, No. 17,854, of the Master, SAMUEL ASHTON, be suspended for a period of three months from this date.

(6). The Court desires to express its opinion that good discipline was maintained after the wreck, and credit is due to the Master, Officers and Crew for preventing any greater loss of life than one boy, there being 153 persons on board at the time of the accident.

It is desirable to mention the praiseworthy conduct of the Crews of two Fishing boats who rendered assistance in saving life, and also to mention the kindness and ready aid afforded by the Master, Officers and Crew of the British Steamer Gaelic.

Given under our hands at Hongkong, this the twenty-sixth day of March, one thousand eight hundred and seventy-nine.

It is desirable to mention the praiseworthy conduct of the Crews of two Fishing boats who rendered assistance in saving life, and also to mention the kindness and ready aid afforded by the Master, Officers and Crew of the British Steamer Gaelic.

Given under our hands at Hongkong, this the twenty-sixth day of March, one thousand eight hundred and seventy-nine.
