The following Regulations respecting leave of absence of the Hongkong Police Force, made by - Mr. Administrator TONNOCHY on the 26th day of September, 1881, have been approved by the Right Honourable The EARL OF KIMBERLEY, Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies.

By His Excellency's Command,

M. S. TONNOCHY, Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 14th January, 1882.

LEAVE REGULATIONS OF HONGKONG POLICE FORCE.

Regulations under Ordinance 9 of 1862 (relating to leave of absence and pensions to Members of the Police Force of Hongkong), made by the Governor on the 26th day of September, 1881.

EUROPEANS.

Leave at the expiration of Five Years' Service.

I. Any European Member of the Police Force may, after five years' service, on claiming his return passage, or gratuity of three months' pay, or pension, as the case may be, under § III of Ordinance 8 of 1869, apply through the Captain Superintendent of Police to His Excellency the Governor for permission to return to the service within a period not exceeding nine months.

II. Should this application be approved, the Applicant will receive half pay, during his absence, and a certificate entitling him to a return passage to the Colony within the period specified.

III. The Applicant shall enter into a bond for the refund of the half pay, or the difference between his pension and half pay as the case may be, drawn after his leaving the Colony, in case he does not return at the period specified.

IV. This period may nevertheless be extended by the Secretary of State for the Colonies, on such ground as may to him be satisfactory, and such extension shall be deemed to be leave originally granted within the meaning of the above Sections I, II, and III, anything therein contained to the contrary notwithstanding.

V. Such leave shall enable the Applicant to count his previous service as regards the time of service required before a pension is granted, but shall not be calculated as actual service towards obtaining a pension.

VI. On the Applicant's return to the Colony, he shall be reinstated in his relative position in the Force, and he will be sworn in for a further period of five years' service under § IX of Ordinances 9 of 1862, and 8 of 1869.

INDIANS.

I. Leave of absence will be granted to Indians, after each period of five years' service, subject to the following conditions:-

(a.) That the Applicant's previous character has been good.

(b.) That the leave does not exceed six months, except on special authority.

(c.) That the period on leave does not count towards the time of service necessary for pension, but will enable him to count his previous service towards the period of service required before a pension is granted.

(d.) That half pay is granted for the period on leave, and the return passage of the Applicant defrayed. These amounts will be paid on the Applicant's return to the Colony and re-enlistment.

(e.) The number of men on leave will be limited at the discretion of His Excellency the

Governor.

(f.) On the Applicant's return he will be sworn in under § IX of Ordinances 9 of 1862, and 8 of 1869, for a further period of five years' service, and reinstated in his relative position.

The Second Division will contain all that belongs or has reference to the Export trade in general. Industry applied to the transformation of original produce will find a prominent place, while at the same time, most profitable and ample occasions are created for fair competition in all branches of commerce and Industry.

Under this head are comprehended:

1° Productions of Mining, Quarrying and Metallurgy.

2° Agriculture, Horticulture and Forestry.

3o Chemical Industry.

4° Substances of food as products of industry.

5° Textile Industry and Clothing. Flax, Hemp, Jute and other fibres and fabrics of the same. 6° Leather and India-rubber Industry.

7° Metal Industry.

8° Wood Industry.

9° Stone, Earthenware and Glass Industry.

10° Small ware and Fancy goods..

11° Paper Industry and Stationary.

12° Graphic Arts and Industrial Drawing.

13° Machinery and Means of Transport.

15° Musical Instruments.

In short, every species of commodities comprehended in the general international trade.

To show the international exchange of produce in all branches, a representation of the commerce and trade of the world will be made. For this purpose samples and specimens of the articles of trade and commerce of all important harbours and seaports are to be exhibited.

All particulars of the different articles to be exhibited, such as the name of the Exhibitor, the description of the objects, the price (if destined to be sold) etc. may be shown on labels attached to each article.

III

The Third Division offers occasion to exhibit Works of Fine Arts since the remotest time, in order to constitute an instructive representation of the successive development of ideas in the different nations under the influence of civilisation.

17

This group containing objects illustrative of the Fine Arts of past and present times, has also as an aim to enable visitors to see an Exhibition of the selected treasures of private collections of works of Fine Arts, exhibited by Amateurs and Owners of collections, the so called "Exposition des Ameturs which Collections are, in ordinary time, usually accessible only to a limited few. This comparative study of the fine arts of different periods and of different nations will prove particularly interesting.

IV

The Fourth Division comprehends different special or temporary exhibitions, the so-called Corollary-Exhibitions. These will consist chiefly of products of national agriculture, horticulture and domestic industry.

V

The Fifth Division is the intellectual part of the exhibition. International congresses and scien- tific conferences for the discussing of subjects on public education, teaching and instruction, culture of Arts and Sciences, questions of domestic and international hygiene, political economy, the economy, development and progress of the colonies and the relations between them and their mother countries, international jurisprudence, etc., which will open a vast field for fruitful interchange of opinions between prominent statesmen and men of science in all branches. The social and material interest of mankind are as universal as human reason in their origin development and relations.

An International Jury will be appointed to award prizes.

The detailed arrangements of the Exhibition, the composition and operations of the Juries, the system of the Catalogues, report, etc. will be the object of special Rules.

In behalf of the Netherlands Government, the undersigned has the honour to invite all national and foreign Authorities, Municipalities, Corporations, Mercantile houses, Museums and private amateur- collectors of works of Art and Intustry in China, to participate and co-operate in the above described International Exhibition at Amsterdam.

All information required will be furnished by this Legation.

6. As at present arranged, a Cadet after his appointment will remain for one year in this country, and will be required to begin learning Chinese and to attend a class for students of Chinese at King's College or at University College; he will also be employed during some hours daily at the Colonial Office in the work of the Department. At the end of his year's study in this country the Cadet will be examined in Chinese, and the confirmation of his appointment will depend upon his passing a satisfactory examination, and on his performance of his duties in the Office.

7. Each Cadet will receive salary at the rate of £100 a year while studying in this country and a salary of $1,200 a year from the date of his arrival in the Colony. The cost of his passage to the Colony will be paid, subject to the liability of repayment hereafter mentioned (Secs, 11, 12). And half-salary will be allowed from the date of embarkation.

8. After arrival in Hongkong he will be required to continue his study of the language.

9. While thus studying, he will be under the control and supervision of the Governor of the Colony, who will frame regulations for his hours of study and general duties. Quarters, books, and teachers will be provided for him at the public expense, and he will be required to attend at the Public Offices for a certain time each day as may be directed by the Governor in order to give him an oppor- tunity of learning the details of public business without interfering with his reading. He may also, if thought advisable, be sent for a certain time to China in order to acquire more intimate knowledge of the language.

10. As soon as he is declared by a Board of Examiners to have acquired a competent knowledge of Chinese, he will be employed in such Department as may require his services, at salary of $1,800 per annum, without other allowances, and will be considered eligible for promotion in the Civil Service of Hongkong on the occurrence of any vacancy which he may be deemed suitable to fill.

11. The progress of the Cadet will be tested by half-yearly examinations, and he will be liable to be dismissed without further pay, if he does not pass his final examination within such time as may be fixed, or if at any time his progress or conduct shall be considered by the Governor and Executive Council to be so unsatisfactory as to render such a course desirable. The Governor and Council will decide, having regard to the ground of dismissal, whether the Cadet shall be sent home at the public expense, or shall be left to find his own way home, or shall be, in addition, called upon to repay the cost of his passage out.

12. A bond must be entered into by the Cadet and two approved Sureties with the Crown Agents for the Colonies to secure the repayment of the cost of the passage out, in the event of his dismisal and of its being decided by the Governor and Executive Council that such repayment shall be enforced; and also in the event of the Cadet within four years from the date of his arrival in Hongkong either quitting the Colony without leave or relinquishing his appointment (except for ill health), together with a further sum of £50 for each year to repay the Colony the cost of his teaching, up to his leaving.

The $ is at present reckoned by the Hongkong Government at 4s. 2d. for the purpose of the pay- ment in England of half-salary or pension.

11. The progress of the Cadet will be tested by half-yearly examinations, and he will be liable to be dismissed without further pay, if he does not pass a final examination in one or more of the lan- guages within such time as may be fixed, or if at any time his progress or conduct shall be considered by the Governor and Executive Council to be so unsatisfactory as to render such a course desirable.

2. Candidates must be between the ages of 21 and 24 on the first day of August in the year in which the Examination is held, and must satisfy the Civil Service Commissioners that they are duly qualified in respect of health and character.

3. No Candidate will be admitted to the competition who has not previously passed to the satisfaction of the Civil Service Commissioners a Preliminary Examination in Handwriting, Orthography, and Arithmetic (including Vulgar and Decimal Fractions).

4. The fees required from candidates are £1 for the preliminary and £5 for the competitive examination.

5. The heads of the competitive examination are as follows:-

7. The salary of a Cadet commences at Rupees 3,000 a year. A free

A free passage is granted, and half- salary allowed from the date of embarkation. A bond must be entered into by each Cadet, and two approved sureties with the Crown Agents for the Colonies, to secure that-in case of his dismissal, or in case he shall within four years from the date of his arrival in Ceylon, either quit the Colony with- out leave or relinquish his appointment-he shall, if required by the Governor, repay to the Colony the cost of his passage out.

The subjoined Minute contains the rules at present in force respecting the employment of Cadets. They are, of course, alterable from time to time by the Government.

During these eighteen months of study Cadets will be attached to one of Public Offices, which they will be required to attend for a certain time each day, as may be directed by the Governor, in order to give them an opportunity of learning the details of public business, without interfering with their reading. To ensure a better class of instruction than is now ordinarily obtainable by Cadets, the pundit allowance will be payable only to Masters holding Certifi- cates from the Board of Examiners of their competency to act in that capacity.

9. The Government of Ceylon calculates the Rupee at 1s. 101⁄2d. for the purpose of the payment in England of half salary cr pension.

* Candidates who take up History will be invited to name the periods which they have studied and in which they wish to be examined. In awarding marks, regard will be had to the extent and importance of the period chosen and to the thoroughness with which it has been studied.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 28TH JANUARY, 1882.

MINUTE BY THE GOVERNOR.

His Excellency the Governor having had under his consideration the subject of the Civil Service Examinations in Ceylon, and finding it to be necessary to establish a higher stan lard of proficiency in Singhalese and Tamil, and in other respects to amend the existing regulations, has directed that the Minutes of March 3rd, 1863, December 20th, 1865, January 30th, 1868, and March 1st, 1875, and the Notice of July 1st, 1868, be cancelled, save in so far as they cancel previous Minutes, and that the following Minute be published in their stead :—

1. Every Cadet will be required, before he can receive a substantive appointment, to pass an examination in the subjects herein-after specified. If he pass at or before the examination occurring not later than 18 months from the date of his being attached to one of the Public Offices, his rank in the Service and claim to pension will count from the date of his appointment as Cadet. Otherwise, his claim to count his service will be deferred until he passes; and should be fail to pass within three years from his being attached, his pay will be withdrawn, and the Secretary of State will be recom- mended to cancel his appointment.

2. Gentlemen in the Civil Service will be required, before they can be promoted to the Third Class, to pass a second examination of the character herein-after described. The promotion from the Third Class will be deferred, in the case of gentlemen who fail to pass their second examination, within six years from the date of their being attached to one of the Public Offices, to that of those who shall have passed within that period, and have entered the Third Class before them.

3. The subjects of examination will be the native languages (Singhalese and Tamil), Law, and the System of Accounts employed in the Government Offices.

4. At their first examination Candidates will be examined in Singhalese or Tamil (whichever they may prefer), in Law, and in Accounts; at their second, in Law, Accounts, and both languages ; and the examinations will be conducted after the following scheme :-

SINGHALESE.

In the first examination the Candidate is to write an English translation of two short Singhalese letters or reports from headmen, written in different running hands.

He is to translate a short English judgment or other official paper into Singhalese.

Dictate off-hand the translation into Singhalese of an English report or other official paper, to a native who shall take it down in writing.

Read and translate an extract from a Singhalese newspaper, and from the proceedings of a Gansabhawa case put into his hands for the first time.

Answer a few plain grammatical questions on declensions, conjugations, and compound words. Read, construe, and parse in English any easy sentences in Singhalese that may be set by the Examiner.

To be tested in conversation so as to satisfy the Examiner as to his power of understanding natives of different classes, and of making himself understood by them, both in common conversation and in the usual course of official business.

The second examination shall be similar in its nature to the first, but more difficult in degree. The Candidate will be required to act as an interpreter between the Examiner and natives perfectly ignorant of English; the interpretation to be on matters connected with some ordinary civil or criminal

case.

Candidates taking up Singhalese as their second language will only be tested by the lower standard.

TAMIL.

In the first examination the Candidate should have a knowledge of the leading principles of Tamil grammar, as regards the orthography and the etymology of the language.

He is to read, construe, and parse in English extracts selected from the "Thesavalamy," and the Kathásinthamani."

Read and translate any easy Tamil book, as also a Tamil newspaper or a Tamil manuscript—such as a letter on any common subject, a report from a headman, or a bond or title deed.

Write in plain ordinary Tamil a letter or order to a native headman; the subject of such letter or order to be given by the Examiner.

Translate vivâ voce a short judgment, official letter, or report from English into Tamil, and dictate the translation to a native, who shall take it down in writing.

Converse in Tamil with tolerable ease and fluency on the ordinary topics of the day, and on such subjects as arise in connection with the discharge of public duties.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 28TH JANUARY, 1882.

45

The second examination will be similar in its nature to the first, but more difficult in degree. A knowledge of the chief rules of syntax, as given in Pope's Catechism of Tamil Grammar, will be required. The Candidate will be required to act as interpreter between the Examiner and natives perfectly ignorant of English; the interpretation to be on matters connected with some ordinary civil or criminal case.

Candidates taking up Tamil as their second language will be tested by the first standard of examination only.

Great importance will be attached to Candidates being able to read and translate advertisements and articles in the native newspapers with ease.

LAW.

In their first examination Candidates will be examined in the Law of Evidence (Roscoe on Civil and Criminal Evidence), and in the following Ordinances :-Nos. 3 of 1846, 5 of 1852, 9 of 1852, 9 of 1859, 18 of 1861, 22 of 1866, 11 of 1868, and 18 of 1871.

In their second examination Candidates will be further examined in Marshall's Judgments, Thomson's Institutes, Taylor on Evidence, Vander Linden's Laws of Holland, Smith's Mercantile Law, and Story or Spence on Equity Jurisdiction.

5. The Examinations will be conducted on a system of Marks, and the time allotted to each subject will be fixed by the Examiners.

6. Any Cadet who is of Singhalese, Tamil, or Eurasian parentage will be required to take up for his first examination whichever of the native languages has not been spoken by, or familiar to him, as a child.

7. This Minute shall have effect from the date of publication, but Cadets appointed before January 1st, 1875, shall have the option of presenting themselves for their first examination under the Notice of July 1st, 1868.

簿八十二第

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

HONGKONG, 7TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

THE GOVERNOR'S ADDRESS.

His Excellency Sir JOHN POPE HENNESSY, K.C.M.G., opened the Session with the following address:-

HONOURABLE GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL,

In opening the Legislative Session of 1882, I have to inform you that HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN has been graciously pleased to confirm and allow thirteen of the fourteen Ordinances which were passed

in 1881.

MACAO EXTRADITION ORDINANCE.

Of these Ordinances, No. 1 of 1881, the Macao Extradition Ordinance, is one which deals with a question that engaged the attention of my predecessors for forty years; it has now been settled by the negotiations of Lord KIMBERLEY and Lord GRANVILLE with the Government of Lisbon. And though undoubtedly the credit of that settlement belongs entirely to the Home Governments, nevertheless the advantage of it will be felt by the Governinents of Macao and Hongkong, for the Executives of both Colonies will now be enabled to deal with fugitive criminals in a way that they could not before.

PENAL LAWS REFORM.

Ordinance No. 3 of 1881, the Penal Laws Amendment Ordinance, now confirmed by the Queen, is not the least important reform in colonial penal laws that has been effected in our time. It repeals or amends ten Ordinances, some of them of exceptional severity, and all practically directed against one race only. The Ordinance gives permanent legislative authority to a policy which the Royal prerogative enabled me to enforce for some years past, in spite of some little local criticism; and henceforth it will be illegal in this Colony to brand any criminal, to have public flogging, to allow flogging in Honkgong, except for such offences as entail flogging in England, or to allow flogging on the back. The impolitic system now abolished by the Queen and the legislature of this Colony, though devised for the suppression of crime, had actually manufactured a criminal population and increased crime.

This abolition has been followed by the diminution of crime, and a universal feeling through- out the Colony, to which you can all bear witness, that life and property have become more secure in Hongkong.

DECREASE Of Crime.

I have no wish, gentlemen, to weary you with statistics, but I may perhaps quote the authentic figures which have recently been put before me with reference to the class of crimes which some years ago caused so much alarm throughout the Colony. I take the four years during which, as I have just mentioned, under the exercise of the Royal prerogative, I practically suspended those penal laws which Her Majesty has now abolished. In 1878 cases of murder numbered seven, and this number was reduced to four in 1879; in 1880 there was one case, and in 1881 two cases. Of cases of robbery

74

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

with violence from the person, the number was 35 in 1878, 39 in 1879, 25 in 1880, and 19 in 1881. Cases of burglary, or larceny from dwelling houses, amounted to 113 in 1878 to 101 in 1879, to 53 in 1880, and to 60 in 1881. There were two assaults with intent to rob in 1880, and none in 1881. Taking the total of these really grave crimes, which formerly caused so much apprehension and alarm, -in 1878 they amounted to 173, in 1879 to 145, in 1880 to 81, and in 1881 to 81.

DECREASE IN KIDNAPPING.

The only other class of crime to which I will refer is one which has engaged a good deal of the - attention of his honour the Chief Justice, and that is kidnapping. With reference to that crime, you are aware that Lord KIMBERLEY instructed me to approve in his name of a Chinese Society, which now deals practically with the suppression of that crime, acting in concert with the Captain Superintendent of Police. The consequence is that the smallest number of kidnapping cases that occurred in the four

I have referred to was in 1881, when we had only 50 such cases. years

This is owing to the operations of the Chinese Society, the skill and energy of the Police Force, and the action of the Supreme Court in passing heavy sentences on those who are convicted of that offence. I believe that by these means the principal kidnappers are at the present moment locked up in our gaol.

COMPANIES ORDINANCE.

Amongst the other Ordinances passed in 1881, is Ordinance No. 14, the Companies Ordinance, which introduced some reforms that were pressed upon my attention by my honourable friend, the senior un-official member of the Legislative Council. It is an Ordinance that facilitates the work of those commercial associations that are doing so much to utilise the surplus capital of the Colony.

REVENUE.

In connection with the Appropriation Ordinance for 1882, which Her Majesty has sanctioned, I am laying to-day upon the table some dispatches and some financial papers. The financial papers I am putting before you consist, as usual, of the comparative statements of revenue and expenditure of the past year in comparison with that of the preceding year-that is the statement of 1881, compared with that of 1880. I find that the revenue for the year 1881 amounted to over $1,100,000 being the largest revenue ever collected in this Colony. You are aware that for some years past I have impressed upon you the fact that in my opinion it was not proper to treat as actual revenue the proceeds of the sale of Crown lands. The proceeds of the sale of Crown lands I have always held to represent the capital of the Colony, and therefore in the figures I have given you I do not include that important item. But adding that item, we find that the sum actually collected amounts to $1,309,428. The receipts of the preceding year amounted to $1,056,329, and thus last year the amount collected was more than a quarter of a million in excess of that of the preceding year. Taking the item of stamp revenue, the total sum collected in 1881 amounted to $173,641, in the preceding year it had reached $127,623, showing an increase of $46,000. In looking through the stamp Returns, I find an increase under the great majority of items :-bank notes in circulation, bills of exchange, bank cheques, bills of lading, bottomry bonds, charter parties, transfer of shares, ordinary adhesive stamps, and a large item for conveyances and assignments. This, I need hardly tell you, is the largest revenue ever collected under our stamp Ordinance. When I called upon the Collector of stamps in 1880 to estimate the amount which would be collected in 1881, he estimated it at $115,000, so that the increase which occurred that year was largely in excess of his anticipations.

OPIUM REVENUE.

Now, there is one item in our revenue which, compared with the two previous years, showed in 1881 no change, viz., $205,000 from the opium farmer because it had been sold in 1879 for three years.

I had the satisfaction of selling the opium farm in 1879 at an increase of price from $132,000 to $205,000. But it was said that I had rather unduly forced up the price of the farm, and it was anticipated that when next I should have to dispose of the farm, it would be sold at a smaller figure than the current rate; and indeed one of my officials, a man of ability and knowledge of the Colony, in a communication he made in London to one of the gentlemen in the Colonial Office, expressed great apprehension with respect to the opium farm, and in a memorandum which was trans- mitted to me by the Secretary of State, he said that there would be a falling off in the opium revenue when the opium farm was sold this year. However, these anticipations have not been verified; I have sold the opium farm for 1882-83 for $210,000, so there has been no falling off in the current revenue, which is $205,000.

INCREASE IN JUNK TRADE AND IN FOREIGN SHIPPING.

Now, in looking through the items of revenue which I am putting upon the table, you will see that in this return it states that there is a considerable increase in what are called fees of office. The increase in 1881 amounted to $20,215. On analysing that increase, which I do from a return furnished me by my honourable friend, the Colonial Treasurer, Captain DEANE, I find the items of

75

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

that increase are of importance in considering the question of the prosperity of the Colony. I find, for instance, that the items for licenses and fees of junks, which amounted in 1880 to $18,807, increased in 1881 to $19,839. Now, between the years 1880 and 1881, there was also an increase in the foreign shipping, and the foreign steamers purchased by the Chinese. The junk trade has to compete with the coasting steamers, and when we find that the trade of the coasting steamers, and the general foreign shipping of the Colony increasing at the same time with an increase in the junk trade, we have a combination which shows the prosperous state of the commerce of this Colony. With regard to the foreign shipping, I have not yet before me the final returns, but as you are aware, the revenue from the light dues furnishes a certain criterion for the increase or diminution of the foreign shipping trade. I find that the increase on light dues of foreign shipping amounts to $2,660. Well, that seems in itself a small sum, but when you remember that the light dues only amount to one cent. per ton, upon the foreign shipping, the small apparent increase means an increase of 266,000 tons on foreign shipping in one year in the harbour. I believe that the tonnage of foreign shipping cleared and entered in Hongkong in 1881 exceeded 8,800,000. There are a few other items, which, though apparently small, undoubtedly indicate mercantile prosperity; those are the increase of our revenues from cargo boats and cargo boats' certificates, from the shipping of sailors, and from the examinations of masters and engineers, upon all of which items there is an increase in the past year. Under the head of miscellaneous receipts, I find a considerable increase in the revenue from the storage of gunpowder and kerosine. The total amount of revenue under the head of miscellaneous items in 1880, was $6,695, whereas in 1881, it was $18,294. The taxation of the Colony is at the present moment at precisely the same figure as it was when I first became Governor of Hongkong in 1877, and the increase of revenue that has gone on is therefore an increase of revenue dependent upon the progress and prosperity of the Colony.

EXPENDITURE

I have to ask your attention to the expenditure of the Colony. The expenditure in 1880 amounted to $885,204, whereas in 1881 the amount was somewhat larger, viz., $895,985. The difference, you will observe, between the revenue collected in 1881 and the expenditure of that year is about $400,000,-a respectable sum to have gained on the Treasury transactions of the past year, without new taxes, and whilst maintaining the Establishments and services in a state of efficiency.

WORKS AND BUILDINGS.

I find that the expenditure on works and buildings in 1881 amounted to $59,781, as compared with $50,568 in the preceding year, showing an increase of $9,000. Under the head of what are called miscellaneous services, there was an increase last year, of $11,000. Now, with respect to works and buildings, the items showing an increase consist of repairs to buildings, amounting to $14,098, as compared with $11,923 in the preceding year. One large cause of increase is the typhoon breakwater in Causeway Bay, the expenditure upon which is $30,095. The work is proceding, and will be so far completed before the next typhoon season, as to furnish at that time, if we should have a typhoon, a substantial protection to the junk population. There has been a slight increase in the item of street lamps, which amounts to $21,418. There is an increase in the telegraph service from $2,900 to $5,600. As you are aware, our telegraphic communications are now connected with all the Police Stations in the Colony. Two small submarine lines have been laid across the harbour, and you are also no doubt aware that we are substituting iron posts in the place of the ordinary wooden poles. Amongst the other miscellaneous items which account for this increase I find the item of compensation to Mr. COUGHTRIE of $1,500. That compensation, I think, was claimed in May, 1878, at all events a consider able time ago, by Mr. COUGHTRIE, for an injury which he stated was done to his dwelling house by the bursting of a drain, and he held the Survery Dapartment responsible for it. He applied for $1,500, and after a very long inquiry into the matter, I am happy to say that the EARL OF KIMBERLEY sanctioned the claim, and that the sum of $1,500 has been paid to him. As to the ordinary services of the Colony, such as the provision on an efficient Police Force, providing a proper staff for the Harbour Department, and doing what is required for the other establishments in the Colony, I have no hesitation in saying that the Government has not been in any way backward; I think my honourable friend on my left, the head of the Police Force, will bear me out in saying that any expenditure required for that force has never been refused by the Executive, and the same, I think, will be said by the gentlemen at the head of the Harbour Department. As to our roads, streets, and bridges, I am on the whole perfectly satisfied with the state they are in. I have over and over again intimated to Mr. PRICE and to Mr. BOWDLER that any assistance required for that department, I am prepared to sanction; and I believe the condi- tion of our streets and roads, so far from being unsatisfactory, is highly creditable to the Survey Depart- ment. In 1881 I laid out $12,000 on tree planting, and a considerable increase on the annual sum ($700) spent on that work a few years ago. The good results we all observe from the tree-planting, justify this increased expenditure. On the whole, gentlemen, I think you have no reason to be dissatisfied with the expenditure you have voted, and with the mode in which it has been laid out. There are certain works, which I was anxious to see carried out several years ago, with which at that time I remember the Sur- veyor General expressed his inability to deal until the repairs to the Praya Wall had been completed.

76

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

There is a provision for a new gaol on Stone Cutters' Island. That is a matter which has been pressed very much upon my attention by the Government, and the EARL OF KIMBERLEY has expressed an opinion that that is the only suitable site for the gaol. You are aware also that the work of establishing an Observatory at Kowloon is a matter of importance, and you also probably know that the plans and estimates for a new Water Police Station at Kowloon have been laid before Her Majesty's Government. As to the water supply scheme, before I proceded some months ago to Peking, I instructed Mr. Bowdler to carry out what is known as the Tytam scheme. He recommended the getting out of persons from England who were capable of conducting technical work necessary for the carrying out of the scheme. I telegraphed for them, and in the meantime a question has been raised by a very eminent gentleman now in the Colony, Mr. CHADWICK, as to going back upon the still more expensive scheme, in contrast to the later Tytam scheme, and he is about to report upon the mater to Her Majesty's Gov- ernment. As to the Water Police Station, that matter has been delayed by a reference, very properly made to the Surveyor General, who is now in London. The plans of the Observatory have been referred to eminent scientific authorities in London, and I am awaiting instructions before beginning the work. The question of the Gaol is also before the Secretary of State, and having been referred to the Surveyor General, the question has arisen as to the number of prisoners to be accommodated. When last I addressed you upon the subject, I thought we should provide accommodation for 750, and upon that subject the question has arisen as to how far it might not be desirable to have the gaol on Stone Cutters' Island made to accommodate say 600 or 700, and a lock up on this side of the harbour for 100 or 200. That question is under the consideration of Her Majesty's Government.

SANITATION.

Mr. CHADWICK, who I am happy to say is in the Colony, is about to report to Her Majesty's Government upon some questions connected with the sanitation of Hongkong, questions which have been brought to the notice of Her Majesty's Government, as appears in the instructions given to Mr. CHADWICK, by representations-constant representations, as Lord KIMBERLEY says-by the officer in command of the troops as to the condition of the Chinese houses, and the system of drainage, which he imagined was injuriously affecting the health of the troops under his command. The sanitary state of this Colony is always a question of great interest to us; and the fact of there being 900 or 1,000 European troops in the Colony, gives us an opportunity as it were, by means of the mortality returns, of testing its sanitary state. I do not by any means assert that the mortality and sickness among the troops shows the general mortality and sickness in the Colony, because it is generally greater among the troops, but comparing year by year the mortality among the troops, we arrive at some conclusion as to the improved condition or otherwise of the houses in the vicinity of the barracks.

DECREASED MORTALITY OF THE WHITE TROOPS.

The complaints to which Lord KIMBERLEY refers were made by the Officer Commanding the Troops in Hongkong in 1879, 1880, and 1881. I have before me a return of the mortality among the troops during those three years, and I find that the number of deaths amongst the white troops-that is amongst the men, women, and children of the European troops, amounted to 22 in 1879; in 1880 this had fallen to 20, and last year, 1881, it only amounted to 9, so that as far as these returns, which we have just received from the military authorities, indicate, there has been a steady decline in the mor- tality of the white troops in this Colony of late years.

DECREASE IN GENERAL MORTALITY.

Now, taking a return of the same years which has just reached me, of the whole population of the Colony, we find that in 1879, the death rate amounted to 32 per thousand, in 1880 it had fallen to 28 per thousand, and in 1881 it had fallen to 24 per thousand. The death rate of the European and Americans residents in Hongkong in 1881 was 18 per thousand. These figures are eminently satis- factory, as showing the general condition of the health of the Colony, and as showing what mistakes have been made by those who believe that owing to the increase of the Chinese population, or any other cause, the sanitary state of the Colony for the last three years has been getting worse, instead of steadily improving.

CONTAGIOUS DISEASES ORDINANCE.

In speaking of the health of the troops, there is one topic which I have not referred to before, but which I must touch upon now, because I am instructed by the Secretary of State to prepare an Ordinance to deal with what is called the Contagious Diseases Ordinance. You will no doubt remember that in December 1877, I took the responsibility of appointing a Commission to inquire into the operation of this Ordinance, and the Registrar General's proceedings in connection with it. You will also remember that one result of the appointment of that Cominission, and the inquiry that began in 1878 was that statements were industriously circulated throughout the Colony to the effect that certain measures which I adopted to put on end to abuses that I found in operation under that Ordinance, would cause an increase of contagious diseases amongst the troops. Those who had not an opportunity of knowing the facts circulated these rumours throughout the Colony,

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882. 77

and I believe even to this day it is generally understood in some quarters that though it was admitted that the abuses which I put an end to were revolting abuses; though it was admitted that it was im- possible any Government could sanction some of the abuses which were detected by the Commission, yet nevertheless putting a stop to them, and especially of the abuses caused by the employment of paid informers, the stopping of these matters it was said would undoubtedly cause an increase in the amount of disease amongst the troops. I need hardly say that the Ordinance was passed at the instance of the Office Commanding the Troops here many years ago. It had been devised for what was called the protection of the soldiers and sailors. Now, in looking to the result of the changes I felt it my duty to make, I recently asked for a return from the Military Authorities showing the number of soldiers suffering from contagious diseases during the four years past; that is during the time that the reforms which I felt it necessary to introduce had been in operation. Here are the figures which have been furnished to the Colonial Secretary by the Military Authorities on the 23rd of January last. In 1878 the number of soldiers suffering from those diseases amounted to 188, in 1879 to 182, in 1880 to 164, and in 1881 to 136. You therefore see that the abolition of abuses in the management of the Contagious Diseases Ordinance has had a similar effect to that which took place in the more important one of our penal legislation. I will not dwell upon that subject further than to say that in the instructions given by Lord KIMBERLEY to me, important changes are indicated in the existing Ordinance; when that Ordinance has been prepared it will be my duty to submit the draft in the first instance to the Secretary of State, and when it has been sanctioned by Her Majesty's Government, it will be laid before you. I believe I used the words "revolting abuses" in reference to those which I put a stop to. They are in fact the words used by the EARL OF KIMBERLEY himself in referring to some abuses I found existing in Hongkong.

SANITARY IMPROVEMENTS.

Though the Military and Civil returns indicate a steady improvement in the public health, and in the health of the troops, I am not satisfied with the sanitation of the Colony nevertheless. I think that the town of Victoria might be made a model of sanitation, with its position on the slope of a hill, the possibility of obtaining an almost unlimited supply of water for drinking and washing purposes, and having here a native population who will readily carry out the Chinese custom by which the sewage and refuse is carried out of the town, and used for agricultural purposes. Having a population accustomed to that sensible practice, I have very little doubt this Colony can be made a model of sanitation. I observed the other day that Professor HUXLEY said that some Oriental nations that we had been in the habit of calling barbarous, were actually more civilised than ourselves in the mode in which they treat sewage, and he referred especially to the Chinese, and their mode of dealing with it. It is a subject in which we may have something to learn from the Chinese. In England people are now reconsidering the question of the under-ground drainage system to carry off excrementitious matter by water supply, and some eminent sanitary authorities are in favour of what is called the Chinese process.

BATHS AND WASH-HOUSES.

There are, no doubt, in this Colony other things necessary for good sanitation. Eighteen months ago I called for information from the Survey Department as to the establishment of baths and wash-houses for the poor, and recently I have been again in communication with the leading Chinese inhabitants of the Colony on the subject, and the result is that a system of private baths which now exists to some extent for Chinese, for which twenty cash, that is, two cents, are paid for a single bath-that system can be extended, and I believe the poor will be able before long to avail them- selves of baths and wash-houses where the payment will be extremely moderate, that is, beginning at a scale of one or two cash. These baths and wash-houses, with a moderate supply of warm water, can be built without much cost. You will require a certain number of them, and when the plans are completed I will have much pleasure in submitting them to you and asking for the moderate vote that their cost will entail.

LAND SALES.

Now I have told you that the item from the sale of Crown lands, which reached in 1881 the sum of $205,680, I was not disposed to treat as one of actual revenue. With respect to that item there has also been some expression of opinion in the Colony. I have seen it stated, and I understand it has been pretty generally whispered, that the sale of Crown lands effected in 1881 was really a speculative sale, that the Crown sold lands for sums far higher than purchasers were entitled to pay, and that the land so sold would not be applied to practical purposes, but was in reality intended for speculative purposes, that is, for being sold from one person to another, no buildings being erected upon the lots. You are well aware that at one time in the history of this Colony such things occurred, and large purchases were made many years ago of Crown lands in certain portions of the Colony which to this day have been unused. They were bought for speculative purposes and they remain idle. A similar charge appears to have been made as regards the sale of the Crown lands in 1881. This is a matter of public interest, and I have therefore asked

78

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

the Surveyor General to favour me with a return of the various lots sold in 1881 by the Government, with a statement as to what has been done or is proposed to be done with the land so sold. Now, I find that the first lot sold was inland lot No. 509. It was sold for $3,500 to a Chinese gentleman, and upon that lot he is erecting a number of houses. The next lot sold in 1881 was lot No. 26 at Kowloon, a Marine lot. That has been sold to the Hongkong and Whampoa Dock Co., a company, as you know, one of the most flourishing of its kind in the East, which is doing an immensity of good in the Colony. That was purchased with a view to the erection of houses for the workmen employed at the dock, but the buildings are not yet commenced. The next I see was a lot sold to Messrs. BELILIOS and CHATER, for $12,525 and upon that lot godowns and houses are to be erected during the current year. Speaking in the presence of my honourable friend Mr. BELILIOS I may say that though the godowns are not yet finished some of them are actually let, such is the demand for business premises in the Colony. The next lot was a small one, sold for $1,768, purchased by a European gentleman for a lawn tennis ground which has been constructed. The next lot, for $2,025, was also sold to my enterprising friend. Mr. CHATER, and upon that lot there have been erected four godowns for the storage of kerosine oil, and they will contain about 120,000 cases. The buildings are nearly completed. There was a small inland lot sold to Mr. EDE, which is still unoccupied.

CHINESE SUGAR REFINERY.

Two very important lots were sold at Bowrington to LAI WAI YEUNG, one for $10,025 and the other for $6,025, and upon those lots that Chinese gentleman is constructing, as you all may see, a large sugar refinery. The site selected is one that, as you know, remained perfectly idle and grass-grown up to this year. It is between the premises of JARDINE, MATHESON & Co. and the city of Victoria. Upon that ground the sugar refinery is now being built. It is the first time that a sugar refinery, as such, has been constructed in the Colony of Hongkong, for the sugar refinery a little further to the east, which is called the East Point Sugar Refinery, consists of buildings which, as you are aware, were constructed originally with a view of doing something to remedy the inconvenience felt with regard to the currency of the Colony by establishing here a Mint. Sir HERCULES ROBINSON constructed those fine buildings for a Mint. They were subsequently sold- I think it was unfortunate for less than a third of what they cost, but I am bound to say they are now usefully employed by an energetic company, the China Sugar Refining Company. With regard to the sugar refinery being built by the Chinese a little nearer the town, the machinery for that building is being obtained from Scotland; it is of the best kind, with all the latest improvements, and the machinery and buildings will cost about $350,000. I find that a small lot, inland lot No. 622, was sold for $510 to a European gentleman for the storage of timber. Next there is a lot sold for $2,525 to another European gentleman for kerosine godowns. These godowns have been nearly completed. The next lot, a small one, sold for $205, is still unoccupied.

SEA-WALL AND GODOWNS AT KOWLOON.

I come now to a very important sale that was effected at Kowloon of marine lots No. 20 and 21, sold, one for $29,025 and the other for $24,025. They have been purchased by Mr. CHATER. The ground is now being reclaimed from the sea. I had an opportunity some time ago of examining the plans and estimates, and with respect to that important work I have been furnished by Mr. Danby with a memorandum in which he states-

"The ground on the beach at Kowloon between Tsimtsa-tsui and the Royal Naval Coal Sheds was sold lately by Government to some influential capitalists in the Colony, who propose utilising it for commercial purposes by erecting large Godowns and Coal Sheds thereon. The ground will be reclaimed by them, a strong sea wall being erected in front and for the whole length of the ground, wharves will also be constructed at intervals along the front of the sea wall so that vessels of large tonnage can lay alongside and either discharge or take in cargo, at any state of the tide and in all weathers, this position being sheltered from typhoons and strong gales by the Kowloon hills. Men-of-war and steam-ship anchor imme- diately in front of this place during the typhoon season. The storage capacity of the whole of the godowns will be about 375,000 tons, and the capital that will have been laid out on the project when completed will exceed one million dollars.” I find the next lots are lots bought by European gentlemen as sites for bungalows on the hills.

LARGE NEW DOCK.

Next we come to a lot, at Belcher's Bay, which was sold for $36,100. On that lot there will be constructed a dock of large dimensions, for some of the Chinese gentlemen who purchased that valuable piece of Crown land have expressed to me their regret that Her Majesty's ship Inconstant should be seen leaving this harbour to proceed to Nagasaki to be docked, and they undertake that when they have an opportunity of making their new dock, Hongkong will then have a dock capable of taking in the largest vessel in Her Majesty's service. I find certain works which were undertaken in Duddell-street, and for a small portion of which some Crown land was sold. My honourable friend on my left (Mr. BELILIOS) has those works in hand also. Upon that site there is now being built, as you see, substantial and magnificent godowns, and I think some of these, as many as nine of them, though not yet finished, are actually let.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882. 79

NEW SUGAR REFINERY.

Finally, I come to a lot with respect to which there has been a good deal of talk, inland lot No. 837, which was sold for $24,500 to Messrs. BUTTERFIELD & SWIRE. That is a lot about halfway between this and Shau-ki-wán, at a place called Quarry Bay, and the only reason why any one can speak of the Government having got larger prices than it really ought to expect for land is that perhaps with reference to the sale of that lot an incident occurred which might give rise to the idea there was some speculation. I think it was $5,000 or $6,000 that in consultation with Mr. BOWDLER we arranged as the sum at which the upset price for that lot should be fixed. I may mention that, as usual in such cases, I received representations from Mr. BOWDLER that the upset price was somewhat too high. From time to time in 1881, with respect to the lots at Bowrington especially, I myself ventured considerable to increase the upset price the Survey Department recommended. Representations were made to me on the subject, but I did not feel justified in reducing the price. But with respect to this particular lot I understand, in fact it is a matter of notoriety, commented on in the public Press, that though the upset price was something like $6,000 a gentleman attended at the sale and ran the price up to $24,500. Well, there can be no doubt whatever from all I understand, if that gentleman had obtained the lot for $24,500, it would not have been for the purpose of erecting upon it a sugar refinery. Messrs. BUTTERFIELD & SWIRE intend to put upon it a sugar refinery, which I am disposed to think will be one of the best sugar refineries in the Her Majesty's Colonial empire. When I was Governor-in-Chief in the Windward Islands I had an opportunity of seeing a remarkable sugar refinery built at St. Lucia, which at that time was supposed to be the best in Her Majesty's Colonies. Having seen the plans and estimates of the new sugar rifinery, with an account of the machinery now on its way out, obtained from Blake, Barclay & Co., of Greenock, I have no hesitation in saying we are about to have a sugar refinery in Hongkong that can compete with the large refinery at St. Lucia. This new manufactory will consist of a building having nine floors; it will be constructed to a great extent of iron, on the modern system and with the latest machinery. The total sum which will be expended on the undertaking when completed will not be far short, I believe, of £200,000.

CROWN LAND SALES OF 1881 NOT SPECULATIVE.

Now that is, gentlemen, a detailed account of what was done with the Crown lands sold by me in 1881. There is nothing in that narrative showing what is called land speculation; on the contrary, it shows that the commercial wants of the Colony have been increasing, that the necessity of providing more godowns has been felt by the merchants, and that our manufactures are increasing, and you will notice, and I am happy to notice, that not only has there been an increase of enterprise and prosperity on the part of the foreign community, but also on the part of the Chinese.

PUBLIC WORKS BY PRIVATE ENTERPRIZE.

Some weeks ago I observed that the Secretary of State for India, Lord HARTINGTON, looked forward to the time when certain public works in India would be undertaken by private enterprise. When you consider what is done by the Survey Department in this Colony, you cannot but notice how small the amount really is which we lay out in public works as compared with what may be done by private enterprise and capital when the Colony is prosperous. Sir HERCULES ROBINSON entertained the scheme of forming a Praya Wall at Kowloon and wharves running from it out into deep water so that steamers and ships could go alongside. The expense would have been considerable. The scheme was contemplated by the Government, but it was felt the time had not come for the Government to undertake it. Now it is being undertaken, not by the Government, but by the energy and capital of the colonists, and I am sure you will agree with me that nothing can be more healthy, as a sign of our prosperity, than that works of this kind shoul be undertaken, not by the Survey Department but by private enterprise.

EUROPEANS AND CHINESE ALIKE PROSPEROUS.

But it is manifest that whatever may be said with respect to the prosperity of the Colony as shown by the revenue returns, by the general commercial activity of the Colony, by the fortunate position of the Colony with regard to the diminution of crime and the greater comfort and ease of every one as regards the protection of life and property-whatever indications of prosperity may thus be seen it is also satisfactory to note that, in the history of Hongkong, there never was a time when there was more successful enterprise among all classes alike, of the community, Europeans as well as Chinese.

HONGKONG STUDENT IN LONDON.

There is one class of enterprise, an intellectual enterprise, to which I have great pleasure in referring. Some of my learned friends who are present know that at the examinations at the Inns of Court in London, there are young men from Oxford and Cambridge, London University and King's College, and the chief competition is for the studentships or scholarships given at Lincoln's Inn. Last year a young Chinaman born under the British flag in this Colony succeeded at that examination

80 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

in defeating his competitors from the English, Scotch and Irish Universities, and in three of the subjects of examination he obtained the first place. This was Mr. Ho KAI, one of the numerous Anglo-Chinese subjects that Her Majesty now has in this Colony. I think it is a matter we may all congratulate ourselves upon. That young gentleman, who has been called to the English bar will return, I think, this month to the Colony, and I am sure you will all join with me in welcoming him back.

CHINESE BENEVOLENT INVESTMENTS.

My attention has been called by the Chinese inhabitants to a plan by which wealthy Chinese in this Colony might have an opportunity afforded them of putting aside a certain portion of the money they make, investing it in such a way as to benefit their descendants and also to benefit the general community. I may briefly say it is a system of forming a species of trust property which may be administered by a certain number of the Chinese residents, perhaps those who under one of our Ordinances conduct so admirably the affairs of the Tung-wá Hospital, and to that body of gentlemen will be given from time to time considerable sums by wealthy Chinese which will be invested by them, a certain portion, say seven-tenths, to be appropriated so as to benefit the descendants of the donors by giving them education, and in other ways, the remaining three-tenths to be devoted to the public interests of the Colony in general. A scheme of that kind, carefully elaborated, has been recommended to me by what I am justified in describing as the Chinese community of the Colony. I am disposed to give it the most favourable consideration, and I mention it now with satisfaction because it is a further indication of the real progress of Hongkong. As long as these gentlemen, who, as you know, now represent not only the vast majority of rate-payers but the wealthiest rate-payers in the com- munity-out of the twenty largest rate-payers in 1881, seventeen were Chinese-as long as they desire to establish themselves and their descendants in the Colony for ever, so long we have a guarantee for loyalty and good order. On the whole, gentlemen, in opening the Legislative Session 1882 I think we can all look forward, without anxiety, to the continued prosperity of the Colony.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

CONTRACT OF SERVICE.

Extracts from despatch No. 126 of the 18th August, 1881, from Governor SIR JOHN POPE HENNESSY K.C.M.G., TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY.

"The Harbour Master's letter to Your Lordship ostensibly raises a question very proper for the "Emigration Officer to raise, namely, what is a contract of service under our Emigration laws and the "instructions of the Secretary of State. On that point he and I do not agree, for he thinks a contract "of service must be a written contract.

"For some years he was in the habit of passing as 'free emigrants under no contract of service "whatever' the Chinese who were taken to Honolulu after entering into verbal agreements in Hongkong "that they would work off their passage money by two years' service on the sugar plantations of "the Sandwich Islands.

"When this was brought to my notice by some Chinese gentlemen in 1878, I took the responsi- 'bility of declining to issue my licence for such Emigration as free Emigration; and with Sir MICHAEL "HICKS BEACH's approval, the system which had been tolerated for some years was stopped.

"In the year 1878, Sir WILLIAM ROBINSON, the Governor of Singapore, drew my attention to the "fact that the Emigration Officer at Hongkong passed as 'free Emigrants under no contract of service,' "certain Chinese girls some of whom had been purchased in Hongkong and some of whom had sold "themselves for considerable sums on a verbal contract to do service for two years, sometimes three years, as prostitutes in the licensed brothels of Singapore. The United States Consul in Hongkong represented to me also, more than once, that in endeavouring to check the traffic to California of "Chinese girls who had entered into verbal contracts of Brothel service, he felt compelled to rely on "the assistance of the Committee of the Tung Wa Hospital.

66

66

"To some of these representations Captain THOMSETT answered in words similar to what he uses "in the first report of his own (dated 20th July 1880) he now submits to Your Lordship, viz. :— "Kidnapped cases can be stopped, but no others unless it can be proved that a written contract "has been entered into.

66

*

*

Although I entertain no doubt as to the accuracy of the opinions given by Mr. BRAMSTON and “Mr. O'MALLEY that there may be a verbal as well as a written contract of service, I have referred

'Captain THOMSETT's letter to the Attorney General for a report."

66

Extract from Despatch dated Downing Street, 15th November, 1881, from the RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY to Governor SIR JOHN POPE HENNESSY, K.C.M.G.

"I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch No. 126 of the 18th of August "enclosing a letter from Captain THOMSETT relative to a difficulty which has arisen in respect to his "duties as Emigration Officer, and I have also to acknowledge the receipt of Mr. TONNOCHY'S despatch "No. 12 of the 10th of October forwarding the Attorney General's report upon this letter.

((

"The main point at issue appears to be what constitutes a contract of service, and I concur "generally with you in thinking that it is not necessary that every such contract should be in writing: indeed, that such has always been the view held by Government is proved by the fact that it has "been held necessary to examine each so called free emigrant before allowing him to proceed on "board; and care must be taken that these examinations are not allowed to become less searching "than they were intended to be, and to degenerate into a mere form.

(6

"The further question then arises whether and advance of passage money and an undertaking to it constitutes a contract of service, and it appears to me that in some cases it does, in others it

repay "does not.

"In my opinion an advance of money from one man to another for passage expenses which the "borrower is to repay out of his wages, does not amount to a contract of service, even though the "arrangement be reduced to writing: on the other hand a similar advance which is to be worked out "in service to the creditor or to any persons whom the creditor may name, constitutes a contract of "service even though the arrangement be not embodied in writing.

"I am unable to see that the opinions of the Attorney General referred to in these papers are at "variance with the propositions thus stated, and it may be laid down to be the duty of the Emigration "Officer to satisfy himself as far as possible on what terms in any case the loan has been obtained by "the so-called free Emigrant; whether on simple condition of repayment or on that of working out "the debt by service to a specified person or persons.'

18. Having signed the Contract, no Emigrant will be at liberty to leave the Vessel, unless with consent of his employer; but every Emigrant shall be allowed two clear days after signing his Contract and before departure of the Vessel, to see his friends alongside and dispose of his money as he may wish.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

CONTRACT OF SERVICE.

Extracts from despatch No. 126 of the 18th August, 1881, from Governor SIR JOHN POPE HENNESSY K.C.M.G., TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY.

"The Harbour Master's letter to Your Lordship ostensibly raises a question very proper for the "Emigration Officer to raise, namely, what is a contract of service under our Emigration laws and the "instructions of the Secretary of State. On that point he and I do not agree, for he thinks a contract "of service must be a written contract.

"For some years he was in the habit of passing as 'free emigrants under no contract of service "whatever' the Chinese who were taken to Honolulu after entering into verbal agreements in Hongkong "that they would work off their passage money by two years' service on the sugar plantations of "the Sandwich Islands.

"When this was brought to my notice by some Chinese gentlemen in 1878, I took the responsi- 'bility of declining to issue my licence for such Emigration as free Emigration; and with Sir MICHAEL "HICKS BEACH's approval, the system which had been tolerated for some years was stopped.

"In the year 1878, Sir WILLIAM ROBINSON, the Governor of Singapore, drew my attention to the "fact that the Emigration Officer at Hongkong passed as 'free Emigrants under no contract of service,' "certain Chinese girls some of whom had been purchased in Hongkong and some of whom had sold "themselves for considerable sums on a verbal contract to do service for two years, sometimes three years, as prostitutes in the licensed brothels of Singapore. The United States Consul in Hongkong represented to me also, more than once, that in endeavouring to check the traffic to California of "Chinese girls who had entered into verbal contracts of Brothel service, he felt compelled to rely on "the assistance of the Committee of the Tung Wa Hospital.

66

66

"To some of these representations Captain THOMSETT answered in words similar to what he uses "in the first report of his own (dated 20th July 1880) he now submits to Your Lordship, viz. :— "Kidnapped cases can be stopped, but no others unless it can be proved that a written contract "has been entered into.

66

*

*

Although I entertain no doubt as to the accuracy of the opinions given by Mr. BRAMSTON and “Mr. O'MALLEY that there may be a verbal as well as a written contract of service, I have referred

'Captain THOMSETT's letter to the Attorney General for a report."

66

Extract from Despatch dated Downing Street, 15th November, 1881, from the RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY to Governor SIR JOHN POPE HENNESSY, K.C.M.G.

"I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch No. 126 of the 18th of August "enclosing a letter from Captain THOMSETT relative to a difficulty which has arisen in respect to his "duties as Emigration Officer, and I have also to acknowledge the receipt of Mr. TONNOCHY'S despatch "No. 12 of the 10th of October forwarding the Attorney General's report upon this letter.

"The main point at issue appears to be what constitutes a contract of service, and I concur "generally with you in thinking that it is not necessary that every such contract should be in writing: indeed, that such has always been the view held by Government is proved by the fact that it has "been held necessary to examine each so called free emigrant before allowing him to proceed on "board; and care must be taken that these examinations are not allowed to become less searching "than they were intended to be, and to degenerate into a mere form.

(6

"The further question then arises whether and advance of passage money and an undertaking to it constitutes a contract of service, and it appears to me that in some cases it does, in others it

repay "does not.

"In my opinion an advance of money from one man to another for passage expenses which the "borrower is to repay out of his wages, does not amount to a contract of service, even though the "arrangement be reduced to writing: on the other hand a similar advance which is to be worked out "in service to the creditor or to any persons whom the creditor may name, constitutes a contract of "service even though the arrangement be not embodied in writing.

"I am unable to see that the opinions of the Attorney General referred to in these papers are at "variance with the propositions thus stated, and it may be laid down to be the duty of the Emigration "Officer to satisfy himself as far as possible on what terms in any case the loan has been obtained by "the so-called free Emigrant; whether on simple condition of repayment or on that of working out "the debt by service to a specified person or persons.'

Whereupon the Harbour Master shall deliver to the Master a permit in English and Chinese in such form as the Governor may direct. This permit shall be signed by the Harbour Master but shall not constitute an authority for the possession of the Opium until it has been countersigned and sealed by the Opium Farmer for the time being or by a person duly authorized by him. The permit when so signed and sealed shall be sufficient authority for the Master to retain possession of the Opium during the time that the vessel remains within the waters of the Colony. Pending the obtain- ing of such permit the Master of every such vessel shall keep a

flag hoisted at the highest masthead. If the Opium has to be transhipped into another vessel before it leaves the waters of the Colony, the Master must so state in his declaration giving the name and description of the vessel into which the Opium is about to be transhipped and the time when the transhipment will take place. During the transhipment of the Opium the Masters of both vessels shall keep a

flag hoisted at the highest masthead. When the Opium men- tioned in the permit has been all transhipped the Master of the transhipping vessel shall deliver over the permit to the Master of the vessel into which such Opium has been tran- shipped, and shall endorse such permit stating the date and time of such transhipment.

Mr. JOHNSON as a point of order rises to call attention to a notice of a resolution he had wished to move to-day.

The Governor explains that he would have been unable to put the motion referred to, as it was irregular and out of order and it therefore could not appear on the Order Book, being a motion for papers sent by the Honourable Member to the Secretary of State for His Lordship's decision which was not yet signified; and His Excellency refers to the practice in the Imperial Parliament as well as the precedent in 1859 in this Colony when the Lieutenant-Governor declined at this Council table to allow a similar motion to be put.

Mr. JOHNSON gives notice of his intention to enter a protest against His Excellency's decision.

3. They shall not be liable to pay to the Company any compensation for loss of traffic occasioned thereby, or for the reasonable exercise of the powers so vested in them as aforesaid.

4.

Provided that such work shall always be com- pleted by such other Company, or persons or person, with all reasonable expedition.

5. Any such other Company, or persons or person, shall not execute such work so far as it immedi- ately affects the Tramways, except under the superintendence of the Company, unless the Com- pany do not give such superintendence at the time specified in the notice for the commencement of the work, or permanently discontinue the same during the progress of the work, and they or he shall execute such work at their or his own expense and to the reasonable satisfaction of the Company.

CVI. If the Company or any of their contractors shall, except as aforesaid, wilfully enter upon and take possession of any of the said lands mentioned in the said Schedule D., which shall be required to be purchased or permanently used for the purpose of this Ordinance, with- out such consent as aforesaid, or without having made such payment for the benefit of the parties interested in the lands, or such deposit by way of security as aforesaid, the Company shall forfeit to the party in possession of such lands the sum of fifty dollars, over and above the amount of any damage done to such lands by reason of such entry and taking possession as aforesaid, and if the Company or their contractors shall, after conviction in such penalty as aforesaid, continue in unlawful possession of any such lands, the Company shall be liable to forfeit the sum of one hundred dollars for every day they or their contractor shall so remain in possession as aforesaid, such penalty to be recoverable by the party in possession of such lands, with costs, by action or suit in the Court : Provided always, that nothing herein contained shall be held to subject the Company to the payment of any such penalties as aforesaid, if they shall bona fide and without collusion have paid the compensation agreed or awarded to be paid in respect of the said lands to any person whom the Company may have reasonably believed to be entitled thereto, or shall have deposited the same in the Bank for the benefit of the parties interested in the lands, or made such deposit by way of security in respect thereof as hereinbefore mentioned, although such person may not have been legally entitled thereto.

Lands in mortgage.

CX. It shall be lawful for the Company to pur- chase or redeem the interest of the mortgagee of

of any the said lands mentioned in the said Schedule D., which may. be required for the purposes of this Ordinance, and that whether they shall have previously purchased the equity of redemption of such lands or not, and whether the mortga gee thereof be entitled thereto in his own right, or in trust for any other party, and whether he be in possession of such lands by virtue of such mortgage or not, and whether such mortgage affect such lands solely, or jointly, with any other lands not required for the purposes of this Ordinance, and in order thereto the Company may pay or tender to such mortgagee the principal and interest due on such mort- gage, together with his costs and charges, if any, and also one month's additional interest, and thereupon such mort- gagee shall immediately assign his interest in the lands comprised in such mortgage to the Company, or as they shall direct, or the Company may give notice in writing to such mortgagee that they will pay off the principal and in- terest due on such mortgage at the end of one month, com- puted from the day of giving such notice; and if they shall have given any such notice, or if the party entitled to the equity of redemption of any such lands shall have given notice of his intention to redeem the same, then at the ex- piration of either of such notices, or at any intermediate period, upon payment or tender by the Company to the mortgagee of the principal money due on such mortgage, and the interest which would become due at the end of one month from the time of giving either of such notices, to- gether with his costs and expenses, if any, such mortgagee shall assign or release his interest in the lands comprised in such mortgage to the Company, or as they shall direct.

CXI. If, in either of the cases aforesaid, upon such payment or tender, any mortgagee shall fail to assign or re- lease his interest in such mortgage as directed by the Com- pany, or if he fail to adduce a good title thereto to their satisfaction, then it shall be lawful for the Company to de- posit in the Bank, in the manner provided by this Ordinance in like cases, the principal and interest, together with the costs, if any, due on such mortgage, and also, if such pay- ment be made before the expiration of the notices aforesaid, such further interest as would at such expiration become due ; and it shall be lawful for them, if they think fit, to execute a deed poll, duly stamped, in the manner hereinbefore pro- vided in the case of the purchase of lands by them; and thereupon, as well as upon such assignment by the mort- gagee, if any, being made, all the estate and interest of such mortgagee, and of all persons in trust for him, or for whom he may be a trustee, in such lands, shall vest in the Company, and they shall be entitled to immediate possession thereof in case such mortgagee were himself entitled to such possession.

CXII. If any such mortgaged lands shall be of less value than the principal, interest, and costs secured thereon, the value of such lands, or the compensation to be made by the Company in respect thereof, shall be settled by agree- ment between the mortgagee of such lands and the party entitled to the equity of redemption thereof on the one part, and the Company on the other part, and if the parties afore-

}

said fail to agree respecting the amount of such value or compensation, the same shall be determined as in other cases of disputed compensation; and the amount of such value or compensation, being so agreed upon or determined, shall be paid by the Company to the mortgagee in satisfaction of his mortgage debt so far as the same will extend, and upon payment or tender thereof the mortgagee shall assign or release all his interest in such mortgaged lands to the Com- pany, or as they shall direct.

CXIII.

CXIV. If a part only of any such mortgaged lands be required for the purposes of this Ordinance, and if the part so required be of less value than the principal money, in- terest, and costs secured on such lands, and the mortgagee shall not consider the remaining part of such lands a suffi- cient security for the money charged thereon, or be not willing to release the part so required, then the value of such part, and also the compensation (if any) to be paid in respect of the severance thereof or otherwise, shall be settled by agreement between the mortgagee and the party entitled to the equity of redemption of such land on the one part, and the Company on the other, and if the parties aforesaid fail to agree respecting the amount of such value or com- pensation, the same shall be determined as in other cases of disputed compensation; and the amount of such value or compensation, being so agreed upon or determined, shall be paid by the Company to such mortgagee in satisfaction of his mortgage debt so far as the same will extend; and thereupon such mortgagee shall assign or release to them, or as they shall direct, all his interest in such mortgaged lands the value whereof shall have been so paid; and a memorandum of what shall have been so paid shall be en- dorsed on the deed creating such mortgage, and shall be signed by the mortgagee; and a copy of such memorandum shall at the same time (if required) be furnished by the Company at their expense to the party entitled to the equity. of redemption of the lands comprised in such mortgage deed.

CXV. If, upon payment or tender to any such mortgagee of the amount of the value or compensation so agreed upon or determined, such mortgagee shall fail to assign or release to the Company, or as they shall direct, his interest in the lands in respect of which such compen- sation shall so have been paid or tendered, or if he shall fail to adduce a good title thereto to the satisfaction of the Company, it shall be lawful for the Company to pay the amount of such value or compensation into the Bank, in the manner provided by this Ordinance in the case of moneys required to be deposited in such Bank, and such payment or deposit shall be accepted by such mortgagee in satisfaction of his mortgage debt, so far as the same will extend, and shall be a full discharge of the portion of the mortgaged lands so required from all money due thereon; and it shall be lawful for the Company, if they think fit, to execute a deed poll, duly stamped, in the manner hereinbefore provided in the case of the purchase of lands by them; and there- upon such lands shall become absolutely vested in the Company, as to all such estate and interest as were then

vested in the mortgagee, or any person in trust for him, and in case such mortgagee were himself entitled to such possession they shall be entitled to immediate possession thereof; nevertheless, every such mortgagee shall have the same powers and remedies for recovering or compelling payment of the mortgage money or the residue thereof (as the case may be), and the interest thereof, respectively, upou and out of the residue of such mortgaged lands, or the portion thereof not required for the purposes of this Ordinance, as he would otherwise have had, or been entitled to, for recovering or compelling payment thereof upon or out of the whole of the lands originally comprised in such mortgage.

CXVI. Provided always, that, in any of the cases hereinbefore provided with respect to lands subject to mortgage, if in the mortgage deed a time shall have been limited for payment of the principal money thereby secured, and under the provisions hereinbefore contained, the mortgagee shall have been required to accept payment of his mortgage money, or of part thereof, at a time earlier than the time so limited, the Company shall pay to such mortgagee, in addition to the sum which shall have been so paid off, all such costs and expenses as shall be incurred by such mortgagee in respect of, or which shall be incidental to, the re-investment of the sum so paid off, such costs in case of difference to be taxed, and payment thereof enforced, in the manner herein provided with respect to the costs of assignments; and if the rate of interest secured by such mortgage be higher than at the time of the same being so paid off can reasonably be expected to be obtained on re-investing the same, regard being had to the then current rate of interest allowed by the Court, such mortgagee shall be entitled to receive from the Company, in addition to the principal and interest hereinbefore provided for, compensa- tion in respect of the loss to be sustained by him by reason of his mortgage money being so prematurely paid off, the amount of such compensation to be ascertained, in case of difference, as in other cases of disputed compensation; and until payment or tender of such compensation as aforesaid the Company shall not be entitled, as against such mort- gagee, to possession of the mortgaged lands under the provisions hereinbefore contained.

Rent-Charges.

CXVII. If any difference shall arise between the Com- pany and the party entitled to any such charge upon any of the said lauds mentioned in the said Schedule D., and required to be taken for the purposes of this Ordinance, respecting the consideration to be paid for the release of such lands therefrom, or from the portion thereof affecting the lands required for the purposes of this Ordinance, the same shall be determined as in other cases of disputed compensation.

CXVIII. If part only of the lands charged with any such rent-charge, chief or other rent, payment or incum- brance, be required to be taken for the purposes of this Ordinance, the apportionment of any such charge may be settled by agreement between the party entitled to such charge and the owner of the lands on the one part, and the Company on the other part, and if such apportionment be not so settled by agreement, the same shall be settled by a Judge in Summary Jurisdiction; but if the remaining part of the lands so jointly subject be a sufficient security for such charge, then, with consent of the owner of the lands so jointly subject, it shall be lawful for the party entitled to such charge to release therefrom the lands required, on condition or in consideration of such other lands remaining exclusively subject to the whole thereof.

CXIX. Upon payment or tender of the compensa- tion so agreed upon or determined to the party entitled to any such charge as aforesaid, such party shall execute to the Company a release of such charge; and if he fail so to do, or if he fail to adduce good title to such charge to the satisfaction of the Company, it shall be lawful for them to deposit the amount of such compensation in the Bank in the manner hereinbefore provided in like cases, and also, if they think fit, to execute a deed poll, duly stamped in the manner hereinbefore provided in the case of the purchase of lands by them, and thereupon the rent-charge, chief or other rent, payment, or incumbrance, or the portion thereof in respect whereof such compensation shall so have been paid, shall cease and be extinguished.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 18TH FEBRUARY, 1882.

from any

Charge to continue on lands not taken.

CXX. If any such lands be so released such charge or incumbrance, or portion thereof to which they were subject jointly with other lands, such last-men- tioned lands shall alone be charged with the whole of such charge, or with the remainder thereof, as the case may be, and the party entitled to the charge shall have all the same rights and remedies over such last-mentioned lands for the whole or the remainder of the charge, as the case may be, as he had previously over the whole of the lands subject to such charge; and if upon any such charge or portion of charge being so released the deed or instrument creating or transferring such charge be tendered to the Company for the purpose, they shall affix their common seal to a memoran- dum of such release endorsed on such deed or instrument, declaring what part of the lands originally subject to such charge shall have been purchased by virtue of this Ordi- nance, and if the lands be released from part of such charge, what proportion of such charge shall have been released, and how much thereof continues payable, or if the lands so required shall have been released from the whole of such charge, then that the remaining lands are thenceforward to remain exclusively charged therewith; and such memo- randum shall be made and executed at the expense of the Company and shall be evidence in all Courts and elsewhere of the facts therein stated, but not so as to exclude any other evidence of the same facts.

CXXI. Where part only of any lands comprised in a lease for a term of years shall be required for the purposes of this Ordinance, the rent payable in respect of the lands comprised in such lease shall be apportioned between the lands so required and the residue of such lands; and such apportionment may be settled by agreement between the lessor (including Her Majesty in those cases where Her Majesty shall be the lessor) and the lessee of such lands on the one part, and the Company on the other part, and if such apportionment be not so settled by agree- ment between the parties such apportionment shall be settled by a Judge in Summary Jurisdiction; and after such apportionment the lessee of such lands shall, as to all future accruing rent, be liable only to so much of the rent as shall be so apportioned in respect of the lands not required for the purposes of this Ordinance; and as to the lands not so required, and as against the lessee, the lessor shall have all the same rights and remedies for the recovery of such portion of rent as previously to such apportionment he had for the recovery of the whole rent reserved by such lease; and all the covenants, conditions, and agreements of such lease, except as to the amount of rent to be paid, shall remain in force with regard to that part of the land which shall not be required for the purposes of this Ordinance, in the same manner as they would have done in case such part only ofthe land had been included in the lease.

Compensation to Tenants.

CXXII. Every such lessee as last aforesaid shall be entitled to receive from the Company compensation for the damage done to him in his tenancy by reason of the severance of the lands required from those not required or otherwise by reason of the execution of the works.

CXXIII. If any such lands shall be in the possession of any person having no greater interest therein thau as tenant, and if such person be required to give up possession of any lands so occupied by him before the expiration of his term or interest therein, he shall be entitled to compen- sation for the value of his unexpired term or interest in such lands, and for any just allowance which ought to be made to him by an incoming tenant, and for any loss or injury he may sustain, or, if a part only of such lands be required, compensation for the damage done to him in his tenancy by severing the lands held by him or otherwise injuriously affecting the same; and the amount of such compensation shall be determined by a Judge in Summary Jurisdiction in case the parties differ about the same; and upon payment or tender of the amount of such compensation all such persons shall respectively deliver up to the Com- pany or to the person appointed by them to take possession thereof, any such lands in their possession required for the purposes of this Ordinance.

M. S. TONNOCHY, Acting Colonial Secretary.

GOVERNOR SIR JOHN POPE HENNESSY, K.C.M.G., TO THE RIGHT HONOURABLE

No. 117.

MY LORD,

*

THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY.

*

GOVERNMENT HOUSE, HONGKONG, 28th July, 1881.

*

Dr. LEGGE, who is now the Professor of Chinese at Oxford, in a paper he published some years ago touching on the non-success of the Cadet system in Hongkong to produce Officers who had any real knowledge of the Chinese language, pointed out that for the proper working of the Cadet system it was not merely necessary that the Cadets should have the somewhat rare power of being able to master the Chinese language, but that they should also have some sympathy with the Chinese race. I entirely concur with Dr. LEGGE, and believe that his observation applies with equal force to an appointment such as the Head Mastership in the Central School. No doubt Your Lordship would find very little difficulty in selecting for the vacant post some young University man with the necessary aptitude for learning a difficult language, but this equally important qualification is not so easy to test and on that point, I venture to recommend Your Lordship to refer to Dr. LEGGE, whose experience at Oxford and thorough knowledge of the Chinese character and people would doubtless enable him to submit the names of a few suitable candidates for Your Lordship's consideration.

I enclose the usual particulars of the vacancy.

;

The Right Honourable

THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY,

I have, &c.,

THE RIGHT HONOURABLE THE EARL OF KIMBERLEY TO GOVERNOR SIR JOHN POPE HENNESSY, K.C.M.G.

DOWNING STREET,

15th November, 1881.

SIR,-I have the honour to inform you that your despatch No. 117 of the 28th of July last was referred to Professor LEGGE, with a view to his selecting a gentleman qualified for the position of Head Master of the Government Central School, and that I have now appointed Mr. G. H. B. WRIGHT to that post, on the Professor's recommendation.

Mr. WRIGHT is an M.A. of Queen's College, Oxford, and has shown great interest and facility in the study of languages, being a Hebrew and Syriac Prizeman of his University, but is at present unacquainted with the Chinese language.

The Crown Agents have been desired to provide free passages for Mr. WRIGHT and his wife, on his signing the usual agreement, by the mail which leaves Brindisi on the 19th December next.

I have, &c.,

(Signed)

KIMBERLEY.

Sc.,
