This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

Her Majesty's Ships and Vessels are no longer to use the Cambridge Reach, and are to be careful to avoid collision with the wooden bridge.

GEORGE O. WILLES, Vice-Admiral, Commander-in-Chief.

To the Commodore and the respective Captains, Commanders and

Officers Commanding Her Majesty's Ships and Vessels employed on the China Station.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese char cters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 41.

The following Memorandum, is published for general information.

By Command,'

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 9th February, 1884.

A. LISTER, Treasurer.

W. H. MARSH,

Colonial Secretary.

MEMORANDUM ON THE USE OF DISINFECTANTS AND DEODORANTS IN THE VARIOUS GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS OF THE COLONY.

Disinfection and Deodorisation. For practical purposes it is preferable to limit the meaning of the word Disinfection to the destruction of infectious disease germs, and to use the term Deodorisation when referring to the removal or destruction of foul odours. It is in the sense of deodorisers that the bulk of the so-called disinfectants are used by most of the Government Departments.

Disinfection.-Except in Hospitals; all rooms, clothing, bedding, &c., &c., used by persons suffering from any infectious disease should be properly disinfected under the Superintendence of the Sanitary Staff.

Deodorisation. The real remedy for foul odours is thorough cleanliness and the speedy removal and destruction of all dead putrescible matter. When, owing to the presence of putrescent matter, foul odours exist, chemical deodorants are beyond doubt of great value, but it by no means follows that in all cases of bad smells the free use of such deodorants is the best thing to do. On the contrary, the cause of the foul odours should be searched for and, if possible, steps taken to prevent their formation. This fact should be constantly borne in mind by those Officers who superintend the use of disinfectants, i.e. deodorants, in their respective Departments.

Colonial Secretary.

MEMORANDUM ON THE USE OF DISINFECTANTS AND DEODORANTS IN THE VARIOUS GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS OF THE COLONY.

Disinfection and Deodorisation. For practical purposes it is preferable to limit the meaning of the word Disinfection to the destruction of infectious disease germs, and to use the term Deodorisation when referring to the removal or destruction of foul odours. It is in the sense of deodorisers that the bulk of the so-called disinfectants are used by most of the Government Departments.

Disinfection.-Except in Hospitals; all rooms, clothing, bedding, &c., &c., used by persons suffering from any infectious disease should be properly disinfected under the Superintendence of the Sanitary Staff.

Deodorisation. The real remedy for foul odours is thorough cleanliness and the speedy removal and destruction of all dead putrescible matter. When, owing to the presence of putrescent matter, foul odours exist, chemical deodorants are beyond doubt of great value, but it by no means follows that in all cases of bad smells the free use of such deodorants is the best thing to do. On the contrary, the cause of the foul odours should be searched for and, if possible, steps taken to prevent their formation. This fact should be constantly borne in mind by those Officers who superintend the use of disinfectants, i.e. deodorants, in their respective Departments.

Disinfection of Rooms.--All openings should be carefully closed, and a tub of boiling water placed in the middle of the room. After half an hour the water should be removed and the room filled with either Sulphurous Acid, Nitrous Acid, or Chlorine gas, and left closed for from twelve to twenty- four hours. The doors and windows should then be thrown open, the walls and ceilings lime-washed, and all woodwork well scrubbed with carbolised soft soap and water.

Disinfection of Clothing, Bedding, Sc.-This is best done by heat in a proper disinfecting chamber. In the absence of a disinfecting chamber boil the articles for some time in a two per cent. solution of Carbolic Acid, to which some ordinary washing soda has been added.

C

Disinfection of infected excreta.-Sir WM. BURNETT'S Disinfecting Fluid should be freely used, preferably in its concentrated condition, but it may be diluted with one or two volumes of water.

53

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 9 FEBRUARY, 1884.

Deodorisation and Purification of Police Barracks, Prisons, Markets, Schools, &c., &c.-The floors, c. should be washed regularly once a week with a one per cent. solution of Carbolic Acid.

Deodorisation and Purification of Urinals and Latrines.-These should be scrubbed daily with a wo per cent. solution of Carbolic Acid. They should also be lime-washed regularly once a month.

Deodorisation of House Drains.-If the house drains are properly constructed, ventilated, trapped, and regularly flushed, no deodorants will be required. If a drain is offensive, flush freely with a five per cent. solution of Carbolic Acid, and place a tray containing some well burned charcoal over its nouth. The charcoal should be removed every third or fourth day, and care taken to keep it dry.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

REPORT OF THE COURT OF DIRECTORS

TO THE

ORDINARY HALF-YEARLY GENERAL MEETING

OF

SHAREHOLDERS

TO BE HELD

AT THE CITY HALL, HONGKONG, On Thursday, the 28th February, 1884, AT 3 P.M.

To the Proprietors of the

HONGKONG & SHANGHAI BANKING CORPORATION.

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 $52,509.62 brought forward from last account, after paying all charges, deducting interest paid and due, making provision for bad and doubtful debts, amount to $791,851.95, of which, after taking out rebate on Bills not yet due, and remuneration to Directors, there remains for appropriation $780,372.50.

From this sum, the Directors recommend the payment of a Dividend of Two Pounds Sterling per Share, on the old Shares, and One Pound and Five Shillings per Share, on the new Shares, which will absorb $466,666.67.

The difference in Exchange between 4/6, the rate at which the Dividend is declared, and 3/8, the current rate of the day amounts to $106,000.60.

The Directors propose placing $100,000 to the Reserve for equalization of Dividends Ac- count, and Writing off Bank Premises $50,000.

The Balance $57,645.23 to be brought for- ward to the credit of new Profit and Loss Account.

DIRECTORS.

Mr. H. L. DALRYMPLE, Mr. F. D. SASSOON, and Mr. A. P. MCEWEN retire in rotation, and being eligible for re-election offer themselves accordingly.

Mr. A. P. MCEWEN has been appointed Chairman for 1884 and Mr. F. D. SASSOON, Vice-Chairman, subject to their re-election.

Mr. H. HOPPIUS and Mr. WM. REINERS having left the Colony their places have been supplied by Mr. A. GULTzów and Mr. M. GROTE: these appointments require the con- firmation of the Meeting.

AUDITORS.

The Accounts have been audited by the Hon. PHINEAS RYRIE and Mr. FULLARTON HENDERSON; and the Court recommend the re-election of these gentlemen as Auditors for the year 1884.

A. P. MCEWEN, Chairman.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in according to the sounds .of the oldest dialect of practical use, and while alphabetically arranged China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 61.

The following report from the Government Astronomer, for the month of January, 1884, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 23rd February, 1884.

HONGKONG OBSERVATORY.

Weather Report for January, 1884.

In the China Coast Meteorological Register,-based on information transmitted by the Great Northern and the Eastern Extension Telegraph Companies,-which I have published daily, is given a summary of the atmospheric circumstances in Manila and along the Coast of China as far north as Shanghai.

to

At the beginning of the month the Barometer stood at about its mean height in these regions. It registered lowest in Manila, increasing towards NW., highest in Shanghai. Fresh NE. breezes indicated by the Gradients prevailed here. The sky was overcast but the atmosphere dry. The wind diminished in force up to the 4th when it died out, and the sky cleared, the Temperature and the Absolute Humidity at the same time reaching a Maximum. The Barometer was rising steadily up the 8th, when it attained its Maximum, a light E. breeze continuing. The Barometer had not risen quite so much at the Eastern Stations, so that the Gradients then corresponded to N. Winds, which were registered here on the 8th and 9th, the Temperature and the Humidity at the same time falling to their Minima. On the 10th the Barometer began to fall, and the Temperature and Humidity to rise at all stations. The sky became overcast with the R-Cum. clouds characteristic of the season. Gradients for strong E. Winds were followed by a moderate ENE. gale on the 11th, which was not however, of long duration, as it went down to a dead calm with a partly clear sky next day. The following days light E. breezes prevailed. On the 15th the Barometer fell in Manila and rose to 30.4 in Shanghai, and the E. Wind increased to a moderate gale here. From the 16th to the 20th the Baro- meter here, and the Gradients in these regions, continued about the average accompanied by moderate E. breezes and great Relative Humidity with generally a clear sky. On the 18th the Barometer rose in the West and fell in the East. Gradients corresponded to N. Winds and the Humidity again decreased. Cold weather set in at Shanghai, where the Temperature had been hitherto comparatively high. On the 20th a moderate E. gale was felt here, the Barometer having continued to rise in Shanghai. Subsequently the Barometer continued to fall till the end of the month. The Temperature and Humidity increased, and the sky was generally overcast with Cum. or R-cum. clouds. Light or moderate E. breezes prevailed. The Temperature rose again in Shanghai on the 21st. The Barometer was then higher in the South than in the North, with light Winds from various directions along the Coast. But it rose again at Shanghai the 24th, and the E. Wind freshened but did not here exceed a fresh breeze (on the 27th). Subsequently atmospheric circumstances were about normal till the 31st, when the Barometer rose, along the Coast and the E. Wind freshened with greater Relative Humidity.

The building of the Observatory was so far advanced by the 1st of January, that it was found possible to fix the Standard Barometer in the Instrument Room and to put up a Stephenson Screen, as well as stands for Radiation Thermometers, at a distance of about 75 feet SW. of the main building, but the Thermometers are placed over dry carth, as the levelled ground round the Observatory has not yet been turfed. The Barometer is placed 110 feet above Mean Sea Level, as determined by the Officers of the Surveyor General's Department. The bulbs of the Thermometers are about 109 feet above Mean Sea Level and 4 feet above the ground, except the Maximum Thermometer, which is a few inches higher, and the Terrestrial Radiation Thermometer, which is about one inch above the ground.

The Self-recording Instruments are not yet erected, as their places are not ready.--

The Lighthouse-keepers at Cape d'Aguilar and Green Island, as well as the Signal-man at Victoria Peak received in December last orders from Captain THOMSETT, R.N., Harbour Master, etc., to make Meteorological Observations according to my directions, from the 1st January, and I lost no time in giving them instructions and fitting up their Instruments.

86

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 23RD FEB., 1884.

At Victoria Peak, the Instruments, except the Radiation Thermometers, are placed in the Look-out. The Barometer is about 1823 feet above Sea Level. The bulbs of tlre Thermometers are about 4 feet above the floor, except the Maximum and the Terrestrial Radiation Thermometers, which are placed at the same height above the ground as at the Observatory.

At Cape d'Aguilar, the Thermometers are placed about 170 feet above Sea Level in a wooden screen 2 feet above the ground, except the Maximum Thermometer, which is a few inches higher.

No Instruments are used at Green Island.

Table I exhibits the readings of the Barometer reduced to 32°.0 Fahrenheit, but not to Sea Level, at the Observatory and at Victoria Peak.

The Mean Height of the Barometer at the Observatory was 30.093, and at the Peak 28.302 inches. The atmospheric tide can scarcely have appreciably exceeded 0.101 at the Observatory. The Baro- meter at the Peak was not read off with sufficient accuracy and is not sensitive enough for determining the atmospheric tide at that altitude. The highest reading of the Barometer registered at the Obser- vatory was 30.356 at 10 a., on the 8th and at the Peak 28.481 at 10 p., on the same day. The lowest reading was 29.856 at 4 p., on the 29th at the Observatory, and 28.116 at 4 p., on the 30th at the Peak.

Table II and Table III exhibit the readings of the Thermometers (Fahrenheit) at the Observa- tory, Cape d'Aguilar and the Peak. The Radiation Thermometers had not been fixed at the Peak.

The Mean Temperature during the month was 62.4 at the Observatory, 61.4 at Cape d'Aguilar and 55.5 at Victoria Peak. The 29th was the hottest day, when the Temperature rose to 75.7.at the Observatory, 72.8 at Cape d'Aguilar and 69.1 at the Peak. The 9th was the coldest day, when the Temperature fell to 46.7 at the Observatory, 48.6 at Cape d'Aguilar and 38.0 at the Peak.

The Mean Temperature in Hongkong decreased one degree Fahrenheit for every 280 feet ascended. Table IV exhibits the Relative Humidity in percentage of saturation (the Humidity of air satur- ated with moisture being 100) as determined from observations of the Dry and Damp Bulb Thermo- meters. The Mean Relative Humidity at the Observatory was 76, at Cape d'Aguilar 874, at the Peak 87. The Least Relative Humidity registered at the Observatory was 34 at 4 p., on the 9th, at Cape d'Aguilar 38 at 10 p., on the 8th, at the Peak 37 at 10 p., on the same day.

Table V exhibits the Tension of the Aqueous Vapour present in the Atmosphere at the Observa- tory and at Victoria Peak, expressed in inches of mercury. The Mean Tension was 0.443 inches at the Observatory, 0.404 at the Peak. The Greatest Tension registered was 0.589 at 4 p., on the 24th at the Observatory, and 0.546 at 10 a., on the same day at the Peak. The Least Tension was 0.142 at 10 p., on the 8th at the Observatory, 0.124 at the same time at the Peak.

These figures show that the Tension decreased with the altitude of the Observer in Hongkong. Table VI exhibits the Direction (to two points) and Force of the Wind (0-12), and Sea Disturb- ance (0-9). The portion of the register, that refers to 4 a., as well as the Sea Disturbance registered at the other hours, has been derived from observations made at the Lighthouses.

+

The Mean Direction of the Wind at 4 a., is registered as NE. At the other hours; from observations made at the Observatory, as E. But I am inclined to think, that the former Direction is vitiated from want of experience of the Observers. The Mean Force of the Wind was 3.0 correspond- ing to a velocity of 18 miles per hour. The Force of the Wind was greater during the night than during the day.

Table VII exhibits the Direction and Force of the Wind at Victoria Peak. The Mean Direction is E. and the Mean Force 4.0 corresponding to a velocity of 23 miles per hour.

4.

Table VIII exhibits the Amount, Name and Direction whence coming, of the Clouds. When the Names of Upper and Lower Clouds are given, but only one Direction, this refers to the Lower Clouds. The Mean Direction of the Lower Clouds was E. The Mean Direction of the Upper Clouds cannot be stated, as their heights are so very different, but the observations clearly prove the existence of an upper counter-current from W. On an average 62 per cent of the sky was clouded. The Nebulosity was greater during the night than during the day.

No measurable quantity of Rain fell during the month at the Observatory.-Drizzling Rain fell the 1st at 4 a., the 2nd at 10 p.; the 10th at 4 p., the 13th at 10 p., the 25th occasionally during the afternoon and at 10 p.. the 30th at 1 a., 10a ., 4 p., and 10 p.,-Duration about 8 hours, the 31st for 2 hours during the afternoon.-The total Duration of Drizzling Rain is estimated at 17 hours.

Fog prevailed extensively at Cape d'Aguilar and at the Peak. No Fog was registered at the Observatory, but the horizon was generally seen more or less hazy.

Heavy Dew fell at the Observatory during the night between the 16th and the 17th, and a Rain- bow was seen on the 13th at 5 p.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.---No. 62.

The following report from the Government Astronomer, is published for general information. By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 23rd February, 1884.

W. H. MARSIL,

Colonial Secretary.

H. K. O. No. 49.

HONGKONG, OBSERVATORY,

12th February, 1884.

SIR,-Having devoted a part of my time last autumn in studying past records of the weather kept by Officers of the Harbour Department, I have the honour to submit the accompanying account of the average direction and force of the wind at Victoria Peak.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable The COLONIAL SECRETARY,

&c.,

&c.,

&c.

W. DOBERCK,

Government Astronomer.

On the Mean Direction and Force of the Wind at Victoria Peak.

The Direction and Force of the Wind at Victoria Peak are estimated at different equidistant hours during the day, but no records are kept during the night. The following results are therefore not free from the influence of the diurnal variation of the Wind, but it is to be expected that that influence will be found to be comparatively insignificant.

The Mean Direction and Force (0-12) for each day was taken, and Table I exhibits the number of days during each month in three years, when the wind blew from each Direction.

Hongkong is situated within the region of the North-East Trade, which farther out in the Pacific reigns supreme all the year round, but under the influence of the Asiatic Continent an annual variation of the Direction of the Wind originates. During the Winter the Direction of the Monsoon coincides with that of the Trade, and we find from Table II, that during seven months of the year (from September to March incl.) the Mean Direction of the Wind is from East or North of East. During the other five months the Direction is South of East, but the Easterly Direction predominates · over the Westerly, except during one month, August, when the Direction is South by West. It is therefore obvious that there does not at any time of the year reign a South-West Monsoon at Hongkong, such as there does in india. But although the power of the North-East Trade is generally superior to its antagonist, the South-West Monsoon, the latter, whenever its pent up energy causes an instable equilibrium, is capable of making a furions resistance, such as is witnessed in the Typhoons, but even these, powerful as they are, must yield to the trade and recede towards the West except during a few Summer months, when the Mean Direction of the Wind is Southerly, as shown in Table 11. Then they follow a track towards the North, till they reach the regions, which lie North of the Trade, where the Direction of the Wind is from South-West.

Table III exhibits the average Force of the Wind (0-12) from different points of the Compass during three years and the mean result of the three years. The superior Force of the East Wind, whose superior Frequency was seen from Table II, is here seen at a glance. The exceptionally small Force of the West North West Wind is due to the sheltering influence of the Continent:-

The following Table exhibits the Mean Force of the Wind, without reference to Direction, during the different months of the year. It appears, that the Force of the Wind is somewhat greater in Autumn than Spring. This is no doubt due to the Typhoons.

The cause of the apparently progressive Mean Annual Force of the Wind, as exhibited at the bottom of the Table, I am unable to trace. It therefore remains to be investigated whether this is connected with the cleven-yearly Sunspot-period, or whether it is due to some other agency :-

101

In exercise of the powers in me vested as Governor aforesaid, I, Sir GEORGE FERGUSON Bowen, do creby proclaim that a Session of the Legislative Council of Hongkong shall commence and be holden or the despatch of business on Thursday, the 28th day of February, 1884, at the hour of four o'clock n the afternoon, in the Legislative Council Chamber, in the City of Victoria, within the said Colony; nd the Members of the Legislative Council are hereby required to give their attendance at the said ime and place accordingly.

Given under my hand and the public seal of the Colony, at Government House, this 26th day of February, 1884.

By Command,

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!

W. H. MARSH,

Colonial Secretary.

His Excellency the Governor came into the Council Chamber, and having desired the Honourable Members to be seated, was pleased to speak as follows:-

HONOURABLE GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL,

1. It is with feelings of much pleasure and interest that I now open the first Session of the re- constituted Legislature of Hongkong, and have recourse to your advice and assistance in the adminis- tration of the Government.

2. It will always be one of the most satisfactory reminiscences of my long public career that I have been able to procure a more adequate representation in this Council of the community at large. I am confident that the Government will derive valuable aid from the local knowledge and experience of the Unofficial Members, and I also believe that you will all agree with me that there neither is, nor ought to.be, any antagonism between the Official and the Unofficial element in this Legislature. All the Members alike can have no other object but to secure the general welfare, and to advance the progress of the Colony.

3. For obvious reasons, it is in the highest degree important that this Council should adhere to the constitutional forms followed by the Legislatures of the other principal Crown Colonies. The address of the Governor at the opening of each annual session will contain, here as elsewhere, a general view of the financial and social condition of the Colony, and a statement of the Legislative and other measures, and of the public works proposed. So the address of the Council in reply will afford the Members of the Legislature the usual constitutional opportunity of expressing their opinion of the conduct and proposals of the Government.

4. Further, in accordance with the practice elsewhere, I recommend you to appoint a Committee of Finance (which should be a Committee of the whole Council), a Committee of Laws, and a Committee of Public Works, which should respectively examine in the first instance the details of every proposed vote and measure.

5. After this brief explanatory preface, I will proceed to state generally the principal subjects to which your attention will be directed during the present Session. Full details will be found in the papers which will be laid before you, and in the statements of the several Heads of Departments.

6. In the first place, with regard to the paramount question of Finance, it is very gratifying to be able to inform you that our position is satisfactory. The Revenue of the year 1883 amounted to $1,286,500; and the Ordinary Expenditure to $1,165,700; leaving an excess of revenue over Ordinary Expenditure of $120,800. The Extraordinary Expenditure of 1883 was defrayed from the accu- mulated Balances, and included the

Causeway Bay Reclamation,

Purchase of Houses and Land for the New Central Market, Sanitary Works,

21,000

30,483

Total,......

.$173,959

The Estimated Balance to the credit of the Colony on the 31st December, 1883, was $1,095,505. 7. Hongkong is probably the only State or Colony of importance which at the present day is not only without a Public Debt, but which possesses invested Assets nearly equal to its annual revenue. However, the existing Balances will not be sufficient to carry out several Public Works which are urgently required by this Community, in addition to those "strong and complete measures of sanita- tion" which Mr. CHADWICK (the Civil Engineer recently sent out from England) has reported to be absolutely necessary "for the immediate benefit of the public health." Under these circumstances,

I

102

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST MARCH, 1881.

concur with the Executive Council in what appears to be the general opinion of the Colony, viz., that the present generation of Colonists ought not to be deprived of the advantages referred to, while it cannot of course be expected to defray the entire cost of works of a permanent and reproductive character; and that, consequently, it will be expedient to raise, on the exhaustion of the existing assets, a moderate loan, not much exceeding the revenue of a single year. This question will not have to be decided in its details during the present Session; but I desire to elicit the opinion of the Council on the principle involved.

8. The Estimates for 1884 have been already voted. The Estimates for 1885 will be laid before you in next November; which seems to be the most generally convenient period for the opening of the annual Session.

9. With regard to Legislative measures;-The following Ordinances, among others, have already become law since I assumed this Government in the spring of last year, viz.: Ordinances to provide for the better Regulation of Vehicles and Public Traffic; To organise the construction of certain lines of Tramways; To constitute a Sanitary Board; To amend the Merchant Shipping Law and provide for the enforcement of Quarantine; To continue the operation of the French Mail Steamers Ordinance; To authorise the construction of certain Piers and Wharves. The principal Bills which will be laid before you during the present session will be the following:---

(1.) To regulate Weights and Measures.

2.) To consolidate and amend the Ordinances relating to Opium. 3.) To establish a Savings Bank.

4.) To consolidate and amend the laws relating to Stamp Duties. 5.) To provide for the Registration of Medical Practitioners.

6.) To regulate Prisons and Prisons Discipline.

7.) To amend the Dangerous Goods' Ordinance, 1873.

8.) To amend the Preservation of Birds' Ordinance, 1870.

9.) To amend certain Ordinances relating to Criminal Procedure.

10.) To amend the law relating to the punishment of criminals.

(11.) To amend the Bankruptcy Ordinance of 1864.

(12.) To regulate the Post Office and Postal Service.

(13.) To amend Ordinance No. 10 of 1867.

(14.) To provide for the more effectual protection of Chinese female children.

10. The report of the Commission on Smuggling; and an able and exhaustive memorandum by Mr. Justice RUSSELL on the so-called Blockade of Hongkong by Chinese Revenue Cruisers are recom- mended to your attention. I have discussed this important question with the present British Minister at Peking, who will, I am confident, lend his aid towards carrying out an equitable settlement.

11. Turning to the vital subject of the Public Health, I am glad to inform you that the recent organisation of a Government Sanitary Board under Ordinance No. 7 of 1883, and the promulgation of new Rules and Regulations under that Ordinance, together with the introduction of improved contracts for the removal and disposal of waste products, have been followed by a marked improvement in the practical sanitation of the Colony. Much however remains to be done, both in respect of egislation and of structural sanitary work; but I am confident that the necessary reforms and improvements will in due course be effected by the zeal and ability of the officers to whom this branch of the Public Service has been entrusted, and by the cheerful acquiescence of all classes of our population in such measures and restrictions for the safety of the Public Health as may, with your assistance, become law. In this connection, Bills are in course of preparation to amend and consolidate the laws relating to the Public Health; to amend the Building Ordinance No. 8 of 1856; to regulate the Water supply, and to prevent waste. Owing however to the large and comprehensive nature of these Bills, no less than to the probable necessity of referring certain technical points to scientific authorities in England, it is possible that there may not be time for their full consideration during the present session. In this event, they will form the subject of your first deliberations in the next session. In the meantime, however, the carrying out of such works as were deemed of immediate importance to the Public Health has been sanctioned. These works, which are either in progress or in course of immediate initiation, include, among others, the Reclamation of unhealthy tidal lands at Yau-ma-Ti and Causeway Bay; Extensions and improvements of the existing system of sewers in this city; the construction of a new Central Market; the erection of a permanent Lazaretto on Stone Cutters' Island; the systematic dredging of the noxious foreshore along the Praya by means of steam machinery; and the general Sanitation of the villages in the Colony.

12. In connection with Sanitary Reform, the serious question of increased house accommodation for the population of Victoria is now engaging the attention of my Government. While every succeed- ing census has revealed a great increase in the population, there has not been a corresponding increase in the number of human habitations. Overcrowding in its worst form has consequently been the result; and the prevention of this evil will be dealt with in the proposed new Public Health Ordinance. However, as the true remedy is to be found chiefly in increased house accommodation for the labouring

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST MARCH, 1884.

103

classes, it will be necessary to expand the City in a westerly direction as well as towards the East and to create fresh building sites available for new tenements. Estimates will, therefore, be presented to you for certain additional works of reclamation; for the formation of new suburbs, and for the laying out of new streets in the Districts of Belcher's Bay and Causeway Bay.

;

13. As the hitherto existing system by which purchasers of Crown leaseholds have been able to evade their building obligations has led to a considerable area of land in and near the City remaining vacant, directions have been given that, in the future, no purchaser of a Crown allotment shall receive his lease until he shall have complied with the Conditions of the Sale, and expended the specified sum upon proper tenements. Moreover, in the villages of the Colony, the system of tenants-at-will (termed licensed squatters) whose tenures were terminable upon one month's notice, will be superseded by an improved system of small and inexpensive building leaseholds for seventy-five years. inhabitants will thus gain that security for the investment of their money in suitable homes which was altogether wanting under their present Squatter's License, by which they were liable to eviction upon one month's notice. These measures will, it is expected, tend to stimulate the further erection of proper dwellings, and to relieve the present overcrowded condition of several quarters of the City.

14. On sanitary and other grounds I have come to the conclusion that the drainage of the marshy lands situated within the Race-Course in the Wong-nei Chung Valley is as much a work of necessity as the reclamation of Causeway Bay. A plan will, therefore, be laid before you for the drainage of these meadows and for their conversion into a Public Park.

15. Adverting to other important public undertakings, which have received legislative sanction, I am glad to inform you that the Break-water at Causeway Bay, intended to form a harbour of refuge for the boat population during typhoons, has been satisfatorily completed within the amount originally estimated; that the Tai-tam Water-works are steadily progressing; as is also the extension of the Government Hospital, together with the new Lunatic Asylum; and that the erection of the new Central School will be commenced forthwith.. The new Meteorological Observatory has been finished; and will, it is expected, prove of practical value to the maritime interests of commerce.

16. I have pressed on the Imperial Government the importance, on Sanitary and other grounds, of that urgently needed improvement, the connection of the Eastern and Western portions of Victoria, by means of a continuous marine embankment along the sea-frontage of the Military Cantonments and the Royal Naval Yard. I hope to be able ere long to announce a favourable decision.

17. With regard to the vital question of Public Instruction, the Report of the Inspector of Schools for 1883 will be laid before you. I have myself visited on several occasions, among the other Public Establishments, the chief Educational Institutions in this Island. Their condition is generally satisfactory. The new Central School, or Victoria College, is much needed, and will provide accom- modation for at least seven hundred students.

18. In connection with this subject, the Government proposes, with your concurrence, to follow the precedent of other Colonies by sending, in alternate years, in accordance with Regulations which will be submitted to you, two of the most promising students of our chief Colleges, selected by competitive examination, to complete their professional education in England, especially in Law, Medicine, and Civil Engineering.

19. Those minor posts in the Public Service which are at the disposal of the Governor, were wisely thrown open by my predecessor to competitive examination, without distinction of race or creed. A much needed stimulus has thus been given to general Education, while the Government will secure a constant supply of eligible candidates for the several Departments.

20. A Report will be laid before you showing the considerable progress already made in the .afforestation of this Colony. I have directed the introduction of several thousand plants of the Australian Eucalyptus, a tree which furnishes valuable timber, and also exercises a marked sanitary influence, as experience in many tropical and semi-tropical countries has amply proved.

21. You will perceive from papers on the table that it has been necessary to procure a new supply of arms for the Police; for the care of which, and for the proper drill and instruction of the corps you have already made provision.

22. The Imperial Government, on my recommendation, has presented a full equipment of guns and rifles to the Hongkong Volunteer Artillery; which body, it is hoped, will furnish a valuable addition to the numerical strength of the garrison.

23. I have represented to the Imperial Government in strong terms the necessity of completing the Fortifications of this important Naval and Military Station and Mart of Commerce. Without refering to the value of the other and manifold interests, both Imperial and Colonial, which are at stake, I may remind you that Official Statistics show that the tonnage of the shipping entered at the Port of Hongkong in the year 1883 exceeded five millions of tons; that is, it exceeded the tonnage of the shipping entered at the Port of London in 1843, the year in which Hongkong was annexed to the British Crown, at a period when this island was little more than a barren rock, uninhabited save by a few Chinese pirates and fishermen.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST MARCH, 1884.

24. I have now, Honourable gentlemen, referred to the principal subjects which will be submitted for your consideration during the present Session. Governors and Legislatures should speak by their actions; and it is my confident hope that our united efforts will, by the blessing of Divine Providence, promote the general welfare and prosperity of all races and classes in this Colony.

His Excellency the Governor having left the Council Chamber, the chair was taken by the Chief Justice, as Senior Member.

The Colonial Secretary moved that the following gentlemen be appointed a Committee to prepare the address in reply to His Excellency's Speech :--

The Honourable THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. The Honourable THE ATTORNEY GENERAL.

The Honourable THE COLONIAL TREASURER.

The Honourable P. RYRIE,

and The Honourable F. BULKELEY JOHNSON.

Question-put and passed.

The Colonial Secretary laid on the table the following papers :-

Correspondence respecting the Police Force.

Memorandum on the subject of New Police Pension Rules and Increased Rates of Pay. Draft Regulations for Government Scholarships.

Correspondence respecting the Postal Service.

Financial Statement showing the position of the Colony at the end of 1883.

Report of Commission appointed to inquire into the alleged Smuggling from the Colony into

China.

Memorandum on the Hongkong Blockade.

On the motion of the Colonial Secretary, the Council adjourned till 5 P.M. to enable the Address of the Legislative Council in reply to the Speech of His Excellency the Governor to be prepared.

The Council re-assembled at 5 P.M.

The Chief Justice took the Chair.

The Acting Clerk of Councils read at the table the following Address to be presented to His Excellency the Governor, in reply to the Speech he had been pleased to deliver to the Council :---

MAY IT PLEASE YOUR EXCELLENCY,

We, the members of the Legislative Council of Hongkong, in Council assembled, beg to thank Your Excellency for the Speech with which you have opened this the first Session of the re-constituted Legislature of the Colony.

2. We desire to offer to Your Excellency our cordial congratulations upon the wise and salutary reform in the constitution of the Council which has been granted by Her Majesty's Government, on your recommendation, and with which your name will for ever be associated. We heartily concur in Your Excellency's expectation that the Government cannot fail to profit by the advice and assistance of an increased number of Unofficial Members; and that the entire Legislature will be animated by a common desire to promote the general welfare and progress of the community.

3. We concur in the advisability of assimilating the proceedings of this Legislature to the consti- tutional forms established in the other principal Crown Colonies.

4. Your Excellency's recommendation concerning the appointment of Committees of Finance, Law, and Public Works will receive our immediate attention.

5. We assure Your Excellency that we shall not fail to give our careful consideration to every question and measure which may be brought before us.

6. We learn with much pleasure that the Financial position of the Colony, as shown by the Official Statistics, is satisfactory.

7. We agree with your Excellency in the opinion that, in justice to the present generation of tax-payers in Hongkong, a moderate loan should be raised, on the exhaustion of the existing assets, to defray a portion of the cost of those Sanitary and other Public Works, which are recognised as of permanent importance for the security of the general health and well-being of our population.

8. The Estimates for 1885 will receive our careful attention, when they are laid before us.

9. We shall examine the Legislative Measures proposed with the careful deliberation which their importance requires.

10. We thank Your Excellency for the attention which you have given to the circumstances of the so-called Blockade of Hongkong; and we shall be glad to assist in bringing about an equitable settlement of this difficult question.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST MARCH, 1884.

105

11. We have received with gratification Your Excellency's statement in regard to the Sanitary eforms which are now in progress; and we trust that the further measures necessary for the preserva- on of the Public Health will continue to occupy the carnest attention of the Government.

12. The want of house accommodation for the labouring classes of this community is a growing vil which we have watched with some alarm; and we shall be glad to co-operate with the efforts of he Government to alleviate the pressure felt in that direction.

13. We cordially approve the steps proposed to be taken to enforce the fulfilment of building covenants in leaseholds, and we trust that any additional security of tenure which may be granted to he smaller class of tenants will operate beneficially in diminishing the evils of overcrowding.

14. The drainage of the Marsh within the Race Course in the Wong-nei Chung Valley will confer boon upon the community by providing a much-needed place of Recreation, and will in our opinion t the same time prove of great advantage to the Public Health.

15. We learn with satisfaction the completion of the Break-water and Meteorological Observatory, and the progress already made in such important and necessary Public Works as the Tai-tam Water Works; the Government Hospital; the Lunatic Asylum, and that the New Central School and the New Central Market will be commenced forthwith.

16. We trust that the forcible representation made by Your Excellency to the proper Imperial Authorities of the sanitary and other advantages to be derived from the junction of the Eastern and Western Prayas, will be crowned with success.

17. We have observed with interest the activity with which your Excellency has, during the short period of your Government, acquired a personal acquaintance with our chief Public Institutions. We shall gladly second your efforts to raise the standard of public Education here, and to enable a certain number of our most promising youths to complete their professional studies in England. We regard, moreover, with satisfaction the continuance of the competitive system for entrance into the Civil Service of Hongkong, consonant as that systein is alike with modern English, and with ancient Chinese custom. 18. We learn with pleasure the steady progress of the important work of afforestation, which, we hope will, here as elsewhere, influence favourably the climate, and so benefit the public health.

19. We entirely concur in the steps taken to promote the efficiency of the Police, a matter of the utmost importance in a community circumstanced as is that of Hongkong.

20. We trust that the organisation and equipment given to the Volunteer Artillery will not only render that body cíficient in any time of emergency, but will also tend to foster in our midst a patriotic spirit of national union and loyalty.

21. We agree with Your Excellency as to the urgent importance of placing Hongkong in that condition of defence which is rendered necessary by the magnitude of the interests, both Imperial and Colonial, which are here at stake.

22. We cannot bring this address to a close without repeating our grateful appreciation of the constant and enlightened attention devoted by Your Excellency to the requirements of all classes and races in this community, and to the initiation of measures calculated to promote the prosperity and advancement of this Colony. We trust that the loyal co-operation of the Governor and of the Legislative Council will, under the Divine Blessing, secure the general welfare and contentment of our population.

HONGKONG OBSERVATORY, 24th February, 1884.

SIR, I have the honour to submit the accompanying account of the average degree of Cloudiness of Hongkong. It shows that the atmosphere here is particularly clear during the autumn, while the spring is rather dull. Just the reverse of this obtains in land, where clear weather is common only in spring. The importance of this circumstance cannot be over-estimated from an astronomical point of view. It is a fact well known to practical astronomers that the part of the sky which is visible during the spring months in the evening in the United Kingd has been especially investigated, while the autumn sky is still comparatively less known. It now appears that Hongkong is most favourably situated for observing during the autumn. So that not only can phenomena be watched here at an hour when they are invisible in England, owing to the difference in Longitude, but that even abstracting from Southern Constellations, the part of the Northern sky which it is most difficult to observe in England can be particularly well explored from this Colony.

I have the honour to Le,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable The COLONIAL SECRETARY,

On the Mean Cloudiness of Hongkong.

The amount of sky covered by clouds has been roughly noted for several years at Cape d'Aguilar at Victoria Peak at different equidistant hours during the day, but no records were kept during th

. The following results are therefore not free from the influence of the diurnal variation of the ount of clouds, but they exhibit nevertheless clearly the annual variation.

The mean amount of sky covered by clouds, expressed in percentage of the whole sky, during different months of the years 1880-1884 inclusive, is exhibited in Table I:—

It will be remarked that the amount of clouds is greater at the Peak than at the Cape. The reason of that is that the observer was in the habit of registering the whole sky as covered by clouds whenever the Peak was enveloped by a cloud. Of course the difference increases together with the amount of clouds.

*

The Mean percentage is 64.2 for the months December, January and February; 68.8 for the months March, April and May; 61.5 for the months June, July and August; and 51.8 for the months September October and November.

It thus appears that the cloudiness is greater in spring than in the autumn, and that October is the least cloudy month. There is a maximum of cloudiness in April, but curiously enough this is still exceeded by February. At the end of January the sky becomes rapidly overcast, and at the end of February there is again some clear weather.

A BILL

ENTITLED

The Weights and Measures Ordinance, 1884.

BE

E it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-- 1. The Governor shall cause to be deposited and safely kept in the Colonial Treasury such weights and measures of the standards in use in the United Kingdom and in the Empire of China respectively as are specified in the Sche- dule to this Ordinance, and the weights and measures so deposited shall be the Standard weights and measures of this Colony.

The Governor shall cause to be made copies and models of the several weights and measures so deposited, and such copies and models shall be submitted to the Colonial Trea- surer, who shall cause the same to be verified, and, if approved, stamped or marked in such manner as the Colonial Treasurer may from time to time determine to shew that the same have been verified and approved.

Copies and models after being so verified and approved shall be deposited with the Police Magistrates, who shall keep the same for the purposes of reference as hereinafter directed.

If any copies or models deposited with a Police Magis- trate are lost, destroyed, defaced or injured, they shall be replaced by others of the same weight or measure duly verified and approved.

2. Any person wishing to compare any weight or mea- sure with the copy or model deposited with a Police Magistrate shall be allowed access to such copy or model for the purpose of making such comparison, at reasonable times to be appointed by the Police Magistrate in his discretion. The comparison shall be made in the Magistrate's presence, and the Magistrate, on being satisfied that the weight or measure brought for comparison corresponds truly to the copy or model, shall stamp or mark the same in such manner as the Colonial Treasurer may from time to time determine to shew that the same has been compared and approved.

Such person shall defray all expenses of conveying his weights and measures to or from the Police Court, or shall deposit with the Examiner one dollar if such weights and measures are on shore, or two dollars if they are on board a ship in the harbour, to defray such expenses.

3. The Governor shall from time to time appoint proper persons to be examiners of weights and measures, and may at pleasure remove any persons so appointed.

4. It shall be the duty of examiners of weights and measures to enter the business premises of any persons who sell goods by weight or measure and examine the weights and measures found on such premises, and seize any of such weights or measures as appear to be fraudulently stamped or not to be according to or not to agree with the standard weights or measures of the Colony.

5. No person shall buy or sell or otherwise deal by any weights or measures other than such as are according to and agree with the standard weights and measures of the Colony.

No person shall buy or sell or otherwise deal by any measure of length or by any steelyard which is not made conformably to the Regulations contained in the Schedule of this Ordinance. ·

6. Any person who falsifics or wilfully injures any copies or models of standard weights or measures deposited with a Police Magistrate, or buys or sells or otherwise deals by, or apon whose business premises are found any weights or measures fraudulently stamped or marked or not according to and agreeing with the standard weights and measures of the Colony, or who obstrnets any examiner of weights and mea- sures in the discharge of his duty as such, shall be liable under this Ordinance on summary conviction before a Police Magistrate to a penalty not exceeding Two hundred dollars for each offence, apart from and in addition to any other penalty or liability to which such person may be subject in respect of such offence. All weights and measures duly seized by an examiner of weights and measures under the provisious of this Ordinance shall be forfeited to the Crown.

MY LORD,-I have been requested by his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales to bring under your Lordship's notice the forthcoming International Health Exhibition which is to be held under the patronage of Her Majesty the Queen in the buildings lately occupied by the Fisheries Ex- hibition.

The Exhibition will open in May next; and, as the time is short, it is hoped that your Lordship will have the goodness to cause immediate notification to be made of his Royal Highness's request that the various Colonial Governments will do their best to favour him with their co-operation by taking a prominent part in an Exhibition, which is likely to benefit all classes of the community by the inter- change of ideas for the improvement of the conditions of Health, and of the means of primary and technical Education.

I beg to enclose herewith copies of the official documents relating to this Exhibition.

MY LORD DUKE,-I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your Grace's letter of the Both November, bringing to my notice, by desire of the President, his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, the forthcoming International Health Exhibition, and intimating that it is hoped that imme- diate notification will be made of his Royal Highness's request that the various Colonial Government- will do their best to co-operate by taking a prominent part in the Exhibition.

In reply, I have to inform your Grace that I shall be happy to issue a Circular Despatch inviting the Colonies to co-operate in the proposed Exhibition; but I would first desire to point out that. loving regard to the late date of the invitation, it would be impossible for the majority of the Colonic- Comply with Regulations 6 and 7 within the limited time therein mentioned, or even carlier in any cases than the end of March, and that many Colonies could not even receive the particulars earlier th the date fixed for the arrival of applications.

Before therefore communicating with the Colonial Governments on the subjet, I should be joki be informed whether some extension cannot be given to enable the more distant Colonies to uv:

elves of the invitation should they desire to do so.

In the Second Group, Dress, chiefly in its relation to health, will be displayed. Illustrations of the clothing of the principal peoples of the world may be expected; and a part of this Exhibition-which, it is anticipated, will be held in the galleries of the Royal Albert Hall-will be devoted to the History

Costume.

In the Third. Fourth and Fifth Groups will be comprised all that pertains to the health! ruction and fitting of the Dwelling, the School and the Workshop; not only as respects the

l arrangements for Sanitation, but also the Fittings and Furniture generally in their effect alth of the inmates. The most improved methods of School Construction will be shown, a des of combating and preventing the evils of unhealthy trades, occupations and

SUI-TUNG HARBOUR.-The entrance to this harbour is narrow and dangerous; the outer bar, upon which there is a depth of 6 feet at low water, is situated 6 miles eastward of the bluff mountain An-kang-shan, and 2 miles S.E. by-S. from the entrance to the harbour; the banks in the vicinity of the bar shift during strong winds, and the sea breaks heavily upon them.

Inside the entrance a narrow channel between mud banks for a distance of 5 miles leads to the village of Sui-tung.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CEMETERY-CONDITIONS OF THE TENURE OF.-The Honourable F. B JOHNSON, on the motion for adjournment, asked, pursuant to notice, the Surveyor General, what ar the conditions of tenure on which the land set apart for the interment of Roman Catholics is held.

The Surveyor General replied :-

Upon receiving notice of the question of the Honourable member, I caused an investigatior to be made as to the terms under which this lease was granted. In 1848 Governor Si JOHN BOWRING conceded to the ecclesiastical authorities of the day a leasehold of this land for the term of 999 years. The concession was not accompanied by any conditions or restrictions. It is vested in the Propaganda Fide as represented by the authorities of the day. The actual holder of the lease is the Roman Catholic Bishop, and I have been able to find nothing that will in any way enable the Government to interfere because it was not given in trust, but was an absolute gift in fee simple to the Roman Catholic authorities of that day.

The Honourable F. B. JOHNSON gave notice that at the next Meeting of Council he would move for the production of all the papers relating to this grant of land.

The Council adjourned until Wednesday, the 12th instant, at 4 P.M.

HONGKONG OBSERVATORY.

Weather Report for February, 1884.

In the China Coast Meteorological Register-based on information transmitted by the Great orthern and the Eastern Extension Telegraph Companies-which I have published daily, is given a ummary of the atmospheric circumstances in Manila and along the Coast of China as far north as hanghai.

At the beginning of the month the Barometer had risen to about its mean height here. It gistered 30.5 inches at Shanghai and 30.1 inches at Manila. Fresh or Strong E. Breezes, indicated y the Gradients, prevailed here. The Barometer fell slowly along the Coast and at the same time rose in Manila. On the 3rd at 10 a. the lowest Pressure was registered at Hongkong. Hence Fradients were inverted and the Wind veered to W. The Temperature was high and in the afternoon remarkable squall passed across the Coast and brought down heavy Rain S. of Shanghai, in which lace a severe snow-storin was experienced. The following days normal atmospheric conditions set in. he sky cleared and Temperature and Humidity decreased owing to the prevalence of Northerly Winds. On the 10th, Gradients indicated Easterly Winds, the Barometer having slightly fallen here. The sky as overcast, the Temperature and the Humidity increased and Rain fell at most stations along the Coast. The following days the Barometer continued falling, Gradients indicated gentle Winds and he Humidity rose to a maximum. The Barometer then continued almost stationary with moderate Gradients for NE. Winds up to the 21st. The sky continued overcast, the Temperature was rising nd the Humidity great. The 21st the Barometer rose, the sky cleared and the Humidity decreased. he Barometer fell again between the 24th and the 28th but the 27th it stood higher here than at Shanghai, The Humidity was then increasing but partially clear sky still obtained.

The Standard Barometer at the Observatory is placed 110 feet above Mean Sea Level. The bulbs f the Thermometers are about 109 feet above Mean Sea Level and 4 feet above the ground, except the faximum Thermometer, which is a few inches higher, and the Terrestrial Radiation Thermometer, which is about one inch above the ground. The four Thermometers are fixed in a Stephenson Screen t a distance of 75 feet SW. of the main building, but they are placed over dry earth, as the levelled round round the Observatory has not yet been turfed. Most of the Self-recording Instruments were rected in the course of February. It is expected that they will be adjusted and ready for work uring the month of March.

At Victoria Peak, the Instruments, except the Radiation Thermometers, are placed in the Look- ut. The Barometer is about 1,823 fer above Sea Level. The bulbs of the Thermometers are about 4 eet above the floor, except the Maximum and the Terrestrial Radiation Thermometers, which are placed at the same height above the ground as at the Observatory. Unfortunately the Solar Radiation Ther- nometer was not properly placed, and the readings are therefore somewhat defective. At Cape d'Aguilar. he Thermometers are placed about 170 feet above Sea Level, in a wooden screen 2 feet above the ground, except the Maximum Thermometer, which is a few inches higher.

203 SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 22ND MAR., 1884.

Table I exhibits the readings of the Barometer reluced to 32.0 Fahrenheit, but not to Sea Level, at the Observ...ory and at Victoria Peak.

The Mean Height of the Barometer at the Observatory was 30.061, and at the Peak 28.244 inches. The atmospheric tide can scarcely have appreciably excecled 0.109 at the Observatory. The Barometer at the Peak is not sensitive enough for determining the atmospheric tile at that altitude. The highest reading of the Barometer registered at the Observatory was 30.311 at 10 a. on the 24th; and at the Peak, 28.458 at the same time. The lowest reading was 29.809 at 4 p. on the 3rd at the Observatory and 28.029 at the same time at the Peak.

Table II and Table III exhibit the readings of the Thermometers (Fahrenheit) at the Observatory, Cape d'Aguilar, and the Peak.

The Mean Temperature during the month was 57.2 at the Observatory, 56.3 at Cape d'Aguilar and 50.6 at the Peak. The Highest Temperature registered was 70.0 on the 3rd, at the Observatory; 65.0 on the 18th, at Cape d'Aguilar; and 63.5 on the 28th, at the Peak. The Lowest Temperature was 42.8 on the 7th, at the Observatory; 43.6 at Cape d'Aguilar; and 35.8 on the same day, at the Peak.

The Mean Temperature in Hongkong decreased one degree Fahrenheit for every 280 feet ascended. Table IV exhibits the Relative Humidity in percentage of saturation (the Humidity of air satur- ated with moisture being 100) as determined from observations of the Dry and Damp Bulb Thermom- eters. The Mean Relative Humidity at the Observatory was 78, at Cape d'Aguilar 88, at the Peak 88. The Least Relative Humidity registered at the Observatory was 36 at 4 p. on the 24th; 45 at the same time at the Peak; and 44 at 10 p. on the same day at Cape d'Aguilar.

Table V exhibits the Tension of Aqueous Vapour present in the Atmosphere at the Observatory and at Victoria Peak, expressed in inches of mercury. The Mean Tension was 0.377 inches at the Observatory and 0.337 inches at the Peak. The Greatest Tension registered at the Observatory was 0.517 at 10 p. on the 19th; and at the Peak 0.535 at 10 a. on the 3rd. The Least Tension was 0.173 at 4 p. and 10 p. on the 7th at the Observatory; and 0.156 at 4 p. on the same day at the Peak.

Table VI exhibits the amount of Rain collected at 10 a. on the following day, and the Duration of Precipitation as estimated at the Observatory. The greatest amount of Rain fell on the 3rd when it rained 1.266 at the Observatory, 1.34 at Stone Cutters' Island, and 1.75 at the Peak.-it appears that the amount of Rain increased with the altitude of the Observer in Hongkong.

The Rain at Stone Cutters' Island is, by order of Captain THOMSETT, R.N., Harbour Master, etc., measured by the officer in charge of the Gunpowder Depôt. The gauge is situated about 15 feet above Sea Level and 28 inches above the Ground.

Table VII exhibits the Direction (to two points) and Force of the Wind (0-12) and Sea disturb- ance (0-9). The portion of the register that refers to 4 a., as well as the Sea Disturbance at the other hours, has been derived from observations made at the Light-houses.-The Mean Force of the Wind was 3.1, corresponding to a velocity of 18 miles per hour. The Mean Direction was ENE. The Force of the Wind was greatest in the early morning hours.

Table VIII exhibits the Direction and Force of the Wind at Victoria Peak. The Mean Direction was ENE., and the Mean Force 4.2 corresponding to a Velocity of 24 miles per hour.

Table IX exhibits the Amount, Name and Direction, whence coming, of the Clouds. When the names of Upper and Lower Clonds are given, but only one Direction, this refers to the Lower Clouds. The prevailing Direction of the Lower Clouds was from E. or North of E., but on several days they were observed to come from W. or SW. The Mean Direction of the Highest Clouds was W. On an average 67 per cent of the sky was clouded. The Nebulosity was greater during the day than during the night.

Drizzling Rain, while the instruments were being read off, was registered at the Observatory on the 2nd at 10 p., the 11th at 4 p., the 12th at 10 a., the 14th at 10 p., the 15th at 4 p., the 17th at 4 p., the 18th at 10 p., the 19th at 10 p., and the 20th at 10 a.

214 SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 22ND MAR., 1884.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.--No. 106.

The following report from the Government Astronomer, is published for general information. By Command,

W. H. MARSHI,

Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 22nd March, 1884.

ON THE

ANN

ON THE MEAN MONTHLY AND ANNUAL RAINFALL AT HONGKONG.

The amount of Rain fallen during the previous twenty-four hours has been for several years collected and measured at Stone Cutters' Island at Noon every day. This island is situated in a sheltered position, very favourable for the collection of Rain. The rim of the gauge is circular, 8 inches in diameter and is placed 2 feet 4 inches above the Ground, and about 15 feet above Sea Level. The amount of Precipitation has been measured in hundredths of an inch, the thousandths being neglected, so that the registered amount though fairly accurate, is likely to be a little too small.

-

The Monthly and Annual Rainfall during the years 1878-1883 inclusive is exhibited in Table I. The Mean Annual Rainfall is 90 inches. The Rainy Season sets in, in May or at the end of April and ends in September or in October, but occasionally very little Rain falls in September. The Mean Semi-Annual Rainfall from May to October inclusive is 76.08 inches, and from November to April. it is 13.90 inches.

By comparison with the Table of Cloudiness published in a previous Report, it appears, that this is greater during the Dry than during the Rainy Season.

Government Astronomer.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 22ND MAR,, 1884. 215

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.—No. 107.

The following Annual Report from the Postmaster General is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 22nd March, 1884.

W. H. MARSH,

Colonial Secretary.

GENERAL POST OFFICE,

HONGKONG, March 21st, 1884.

SIR,--I have the honour to report on the British Postal service in China during 1883.

2. There is almost nothing of International interest upon which to remark. It is to be hoped the ng-deferred entry of the Australasian Colonies into the Union is at last to take place. A Postal ongress was to assemble at Lisbon last summer, but nothing has as yet been heard of its proceedings. general period of Statistics was held in November, and passed off smoothly. Its results, as far as ncerns the work of this Department, will be found embodied in Table C in the appendix. It is fficult to account for the decreases shown in this Table. The figures only mean that during the 28 ys selected considerably less correspondence happened to pass through the Post Office than during e corresponding period in 1882. That there has been no real diminution is shewn by the increased le of stamps during the year.

3. The Post Offices at all the Ports have been inspected by the Assistant Postmaster General, Mr. RAVERS, whose report has been published. Mr. TRAVERS alludes to the inconveniences experienced the smaller communities in not being able to obtain Money Orders except from Hongkong or hanghai. It has just been decided at home to extend the excellent Postal note system to the Colonies, ad thus will be afforded to this Office the means of offering Postal notes on the United Kingdom r sale at all the Ports where its Agencies are maintained, as well as of much simplifying the resent rather complicated Money Order system.

4. The Postal facilities provided for the community at Swatow have been increased, thanks to e energy of Mr. BROWN, late Postal Agent there, by the opening of a branch Office on the side of he river opposite to the Consulate, where the Post Office has hitherto been worked. So far there

every reason for satisfaction with this experiment.

5. What should have been the success of the year was the establishment of a Postal Agency at ientsin, but it can only be regarded as à disappointing failure. Successive Consuls stationed there ad assured this Department that, the Agency once established, there would be no difficulty about he courier transit from Chinkiang to Tientsin during the months when the river Peiho is frozen. The Agency has been established, but there is a difficulty. The courier service is carried on by the Customs, and it has been found practically impossible to get a sealed bag of Registered correspondence hrough unopened, simply because the managers of the Transit service open all such bags for the urpose of re-packing the contents. Under these circumstances all check on the safety of Registered Articles vanishes, and this Office finds itself practically where it was before, with Registration xtending to Shanghai and no further.

6. The service sustained a loss during the year in the sad death of Mr. L. W. HENLEY, Postal igent at Foochow. Mr. HENLEY was devoted to the interests of the community amongst whom he vas stationed; his amusing and vivacious letters, always full of excellent suggestions, went far to rove the truth of the saying that no work is really well done which is not done in the pirit of play.

7. Very much larger mails than in former years have been forwarded by the direct steamers Leaving Hankow for London. A practice used to prevail at this port of sending letters on board loose o be posted at Suez. On one occasion, as might have been expected, the whole consignment of etters was not posted at Suez, but carried round by Gibraltar, a mishap which seems to have been not without its moral at Hankow.

8. An Assistant is badly wanted at Amoy, where the business is out-growing the establishment. The Agent there writes of his difficulties in a strain which recalls the reports of the late Mr. TROLIE :-

"

nd fr

Lex

utly

Nice boat is far too small for the work it has to do. Mr. TRAVERS called attention to this after his inspection of the Agency, experience I can confirm all that he bas said. I went out in the little dingy a few weeks ago to one of Messrs. HOLTS' ater harbour, and the trip was not only an unpleasant but an unsafe one. I have had much experience in boating here wan safely afirm that a very little more wind and sea would have capsized the boat. Perhaps when a Post Office gen (or two) have been drowned, and a home mail lost, Her Majesty's Postmaster General may recognise the a safer means of conveyance.

in 1883, $100,690.65; In 1882, $89,147.62. Increase, $11,543.00, or nearly $1,000 a month.

216 SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT. GAZETTE OF 22nd MAR., 1884.

It is not quite clear which Postmaster General is to be convinced by the destruction of two Posta Agents, the universally respected Minister who presides over the Department in London or his muc! humbler representative in Hongkong. If the latter, he can only say, liberavi animam.

9. To provide a larger boat is a very simple matter, the provision of a larger crew is the difficulty. Departmental expenses are continually on the increase, and can seldom be reduced again The Government of Hongkong keeps these Offices at the Ports open simply and solely to deliver the mails from Europe, and to collect correspondence for transmission in the opposite direction. But for this, as far as we are concerned. it would be desirable to close all the Agencies to-morrow. It is discouraging, therefore, to find the London Post Office indisposed to allow any increase upon : departmental expenditure which was settled seventeen years ago, and which has of course been completely outgrown. The expenditure of Hongkong on these Agencies has been more than doubled since 1867, whilst the local Revenue of the Post Office, which in 1872 exceeded $76,000, has disappeared.

10. It may be permissible here to quote the minute which was submitted to His Excellency the Governor on this subject.

"I regret Mr. FAWCETT's decision. It really amounts to this, that the Postal service on the Coast of China is to remain absolutely unimproved, or is to be improved at the sole cost of the Colony of Hongkong. Besides the fact that it is secreely the province of Hongkong to provide Postal facilities for people at Amoy, &c., the Home Government has swept away all the surplus Revenue out of which the expenses of such facilities might have been defrayed.”

“Mr. FAWCETT's suggestion that what is wanted might be provided at the cost of the communities concerned 13 not, under local circumstances, a hopeful one. This course was tried for some years at Hiogo and Nagasaki in Japan, and led to much inconvenience and complication. There are no municipalities at Ports like Amoy which could vote anard sums, in consequence any expenses would have to be met by subscriptions, or (as in Japan) by a charge levied on each letter. The communities rapidly change; the new comers, never having experienced the evils the charges were levied to meet, resent them as impositions, many refuse to pay, or decline to receive the taxed correspondence, and a constant irritation is kept up."

"The difficulty will be met some day. I hope. by the Chinese Government (at first perhaps as represented by the foreign Customs staff) awaking to a sense of its national duties, and establishing an efficient Post Office in every open Port. The time is perhaps hardly ripe for that as yet, and I do not think we enn take the initiative. Hongkong has been requested to relieve the Imperial Government of the care of Post Offices in China. It is not so pleasant as might be wished to have the service stereotyped against all improvement, but our position would seem to be simply a ministerial one. There is nothing for it but to make the best of it, and not to “ wander from the allotted field" until we are relieved of our task there."

11. The disappearance of Revenue alluded to above has been completed during the year under review by the receipt of directions from home to contribute a sum of £6,000 a year towards the expenses of the P. & O. contract, in place of the sum of about £3,000 which we were paying before. For the first time therefore in the history of the Colony it may be considered that the Post Office is being worked at a loss. All the correspondence on this subject has been published. The Imperial Post Office in the first instance asked for nearly £14,000 a year, with arrears from February 1st 1880. The Colony is indebted to Lord KIMBERLEY and Lord DERBY for the reduction of this heavy demand to £6,000.

12. The question of expediting the delivery of the French Mail has again occupied the attention of the Department, it is satisfactory to be able to report that the time occupied in sorting, which had crept up to nearly two hours. has again been reduced to about an hour and a quarter, the mail having once or twice been- sorted in little more than an hour. The means of effecting this has mainly been an arrangement with the Ceylon Post Office, by which the twelve or fourteen bags from Australia, which lie two or three days at Colombo waiting for the outward packet for China, are opened there and consolidated into one large mail, the contents of which are arranged so as to facilitate sorting here as much as possible. An Officer of the Colombo Post Office is paid an allowance equal to about £50 a year for undertaking this duty.

13. In a letter from the Chamber of Commerce to the Colonial Secretary dated May 12th 1882, the following remark occurs:-

"The Committee cannot agreee with the Acting Postmaster General in his statement that the mail which arrives unsorted takes from an hour and forty five minutes to two hours before it is ready for delivery, as the experience of most of the members of this Chamber is that a much longer period is required for the distribution of the letters by the French Mails."

The

Now as a matter of fact no French Mail has ever taken much over two hours to sort. longest time recollected is two hours and a quarter, under exceptionally disadvantageous circuinstances. But this is counting from the arrival at the Post Office of the first bag till the windows are opened. Of course if this Departinent is credited by an impatient public with all the time that elapses from the firing of the Peak gun until extremely deliberate coolics saunter to the houses or offices of their respective employers with the letters, a longer period will naturally seem to be required, but observation will shew that even this is generally not much over four hours. The time taken in landing the mail varies very considerably, being affected by the tide, the weather, the time of day, the amount of obstruction caused by sampans and cargo boats, and other circumstances. Commanders will not allow the mails to be moved until the mooring is complete, others permit their Some despatch before anything else is done. The occasional delays resulting from these circumstances sometimes tell heavily against the community at Canton, the steamer for which place not infreque leaves after the mail arrives, but before it is landed or can be dealt with.

14. The sorting of the French Mail is too often carried on under difficulties caused by the rtinacity of intruders, persons who, after having amused themselves by persistently knocking at ery available window (where of course they receive no attention) drift round the premises in search any unguarded door where an entrance may be effected. Even a Post Office must have some mmunication with the outer world, and if any approach, however unlikely, be left unbarred, these ople will find it. In general they only want to ask "when the mail will be ready?" or some ually foolish question, the answer to which, if there is an answer, is already on the notice board. at the public service is hindered by the attempt to gratify this sort of curiosity or selfishness pears to be nothing to the intruder, who turns up with the greatest regularity whenever the ndows are closed, even for a few moments, for either an incoming or an outgoing mail. Even midnight he seems to think the Post Office is open for the sole purpose of answering his questions. the two, the intruder is a greater nuisance than the gentleman who is "very amiable to have a llection of timber posts

15. No less than $27,000 has been paid away to Chinese on Money Orders from Australia. he Chinese in Rangoon have also discovered the money system we maintain with the Indian Post ffice, and are beginning to remit considerable sums. It is curious that the large Chinese population the Straits Settlements use the Money Order system scarcely at all. The reason probably is that e intimate business connection between the Chinese communities of the two Colonies enables them make arrangements of their own for remitting money, and that for some reason these arrangements nnot so easily be made in the cases of British Burmah and Australia.

16. Proposals to establish a Money Order system have been addressed to the Post Office of the nited States, more with a view to the convenience of American residents in Southern China than to e exchange of Chinese remittances. If the Chinese who have crossed the Pacific avail themselves of e system as their countrymen in Australia have done, more assistance in the Money Order branch this Department will become unavoidably necessary, but this result is not expected.

17. Now that an inland Parcel Post has been established in the United Kingdom it is to be hoped at the much and long desired Parcel Post from China may be established. Proposals to effect this ve been submitted to the London Office. This Department has always declined to participate in any arcel Post system on which prepayment will not frank the parcel to the door of the addressee. There ill probably now be no difficulty in securing this.

18. Some points in the Post Office Ordinance 1876 needing amendment, an entire reprint has 2en submitted for re-enactment. The point on which an alteration of the law was especially desirable as the Section exempting all Chinese letters from the action of the Ordinance. No extensive or veeping interference with Chinese correspondence is intended, but it is desirable to have the power o stop those wholesale evasions of public dues of all kinds which Chinese are so ingenious in devising. n one steamer for San Francisco alone over 11,000 letters were found surreptitiously conveyed in he baggage and about the persons of Chinese passengers.†

19. The amount of thought Chinese will bestow on petty frauds of this kind, and the potionee ith which they will "compass sea and land" to carry them out are well illustrated by a system hich they worked between Singapore and Swatow. Chinese letters for Swatow were portal at ingapore without any attempt at prepayment. At Swatow they were of course chrrgål double ostage. But they had been folded with the ends open, and when the addressee had rect the contents Le declined to receive the letters or pay the sums due. The Swatow Agency met this neat little

aud by enclosing the letters in envelopes, and the practice was discontinued at once. hing was once tried from home with short-paid post cards, and defeated in a similar manner. erhaps hardly be believed that there are persons in China who advise their friends at home not to repay their letters, as the postage is charged here not to the addressees but to dir employers! The Lelay which this Department has purposely introduced as an extra penalty on short-paid correspondence as greatly tended to discourage this. Every unpaid leiter retards the delivery of the mail in which

is. A system of universal compulsory prepayment is much to be desired.

20. The rule of refusing to make enquiries for unregistered letters said to have contained bank notes, ewellery, &c., and alleged to be lost in passing through the Post, introduced more than a year ago, would seem to have worked well. Complaints have become infrequent. It will be said that people That is true, but also, lo not complain when they are told beforehand they will not be listened to.

under those circumstances, they avoid putting themselves in the position of having a complaint t make. Still there is a great deal of carelessness as to the contents of letters. Covers are receive at this Office, obviously containing coin, which have not even been posted, but have been sent loos on board steainers to reach the Post Office as best they could! A whole bundle of letters for Shangh was found to have been gnawed to picces by rats because one cover, in the middle of the bundl contained bride-cake. It is very hard that persons should lose their anxiously expected correspondenc for the sake of such a useless and dirty practice as is sending bride-cake through the Post. A sigh of the repulsive parcels, which it is a trial even to touch, too forcibly suggests the question whethe anybody will have the fortitude to eat their battered and rancid contents.

21. The mails once reached London and twice reached Hongkong in 32 days. The quickes British packet passage has been 32 days, twice, outward. Taking the whole year, and the passage in both directions, the British Packets show an average of 36 days against 364, the average Frenc mail passage. The following are the averages for the year,
