AT THE COURT AT BALMORAL,

The 17th day of October, 1884. PRESENT,

W. H. MARSHI,

Colonial Secretary.

THE QUEEN'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

WHEREAS by "The Merchant Shipping Act Amendment Act, 1862," it is enacted that, whenever it is made to appear to Her Majesty that the rules concerning the measurement of tonnage of Merchant Ships for the time being in force under the principal Act have been adopted by the Government of any Foreign Country, and are in force in that Country, it shall be lawful for Her Majesty, by Order in Council, to direct that the ships of such Foreign Country shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in their certificates of registry, or other national papers; and thereupon it shall no longer be necessary for such ships to be re-measured in any port or place in Her Majesty's Dominions, but such ships shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in their Certificates of Registry, or other papers, in the same manner, to the same extent, and for the same purpose, in, to and for which the tonnage denoted in the Certificates of Registry of British ships is to be deemed the tonnage of such ships:

+

And whereas it has been made to appear to Her Majesty that the rules concerning the measure- ment of tonnage of Merchant Ships now in force under "The Merchant Shipping Act, 1854," have been adopted by the Government of His Majesty the King of the Belgians, with the exception of a slight difference in the mode of estimating the allowance for engine-room, and such rules are now in force in that Country, having come into operation on the 1st day of January, 1884:

HER MAJESTY is hereby pleased, by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, to direct as follows:

1. As regards sailing ships, that merchant sailing ships belonging to Belgium, the measurement whereof on or after the said 1st day of January, 1884, shall have been ascertained and denoted in the Certificates of Registry, or other national papers of such sailing ships, testified by the dates thereof, shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in such Certificates of Registry, or other national papers, in the same manner, and to the same extent, and for the same purpose, in, to and for which the tonnage denoted in the Certificates of Registry of British sailing ships is deemed to be the tonnage of such ships.

As regards steam-ships, that merchant ships belonging to Belgium which are propelled by steam or any other power requiring engine-room, the measurement whereof on or after the said 1st day of January, 1884, shall have been ascertained and denoted in the Certificates of Registry, or other national papers of such steam-ships, testified by the dates thereof, shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in such Certificates of Registry, or other national papers, in the same manner, and to the same extent, and for the same purpose, in, to and for which the tonnage denoted in the Certificates of Registry of British ships is deemed to be the tonnage of such ship, provided, nevertheless, that, if the owner or master of any such steam-ship desires the deduction for engine-room in such ship to be estimated under the rules for engine-room measurement and deduction applicable to British ships, instead of under the Belgian rules, the engine-room shall be measured, and the deductions calculated, accor- ding to the British Rules.

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. 6.

The following Circular Despatch, accompanying a Memorandum relative to the Colonial and Indian Exhibition, to be held in London in the year 1886, is published for general information.

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET,

27th November, 1884.

SIR,I have the honour to transmit to you the accompanying copies of a Memorandum which I have received from His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and which was prepared after previous full interchange of views between His Royal Highness and myself notifying the appointment by the Queen of a Royal Commission, and describing the proposed arrangements for the purpose of organizing and carrying out an Exhibition in London during the year 1886 of the Products, Manufactures, and Resources of Her Majesty's Colonial and Indian Empire.

It only remains for ine to recommend this undertaking on the most favourable consideration of your Government, and I rely with confidence on your own personal efforts to secure a worthy repre- sentation of the Colony under your Government.

I cannot doubt that the Government and people of Hongkong will share my satisfaction at learn- ing that this important undertaking will have the advantage of the personal superintendence of the Prince of Wales, whose administrative capacity is as well known to you as the warm interest with which His Royal Highness regards all matters connected with the Colonial Empire.

Governor Sir G. F. BOWEN, G.C.M.G.

I have, &c.,

DERBY.

MEMORANDUM relative to the COLONIAL AND INDIAN EXHIBITION, to be held in London in the year 1886, for the consideration of the Government of Hongkong.

MARLBOROUGH HOUSE, LONDON, S.W., 24th November, 1884.

The Official Gazette of the 18th of November, 1881, a copy of which is enclosed, notifies that Her Majesty the Queen has been pleased to nominate a Royal Commission for the purpose of organizing and carrying cut in London, during the year 1886, an Exhibition of the Products, Manufactures and Resources of the Colonial and Indian Empire.

In assuming the active Presidency of this Commission, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales is desirous of having the opportunity of bringing prominently under notice the development and progress which have been made in the various parts of the British Empire, and His Royal Highness trusts that a more intimate knowledge may thus be obtained of the vast fields for enterprise which exist throughout the British Dominions.

His

It has been already stated that His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales intends to take the same Executive part as in the case of the Paris Universal Exhibition of 1878, and His Royal Highness has, with the consent of Her Majesty's Government, selected Sir Philip Cunliffe-Owen, K.C.M.G., C.B., C.I.E., Director of the South Kensington Museum, to set as Secretary to the Royal Commission. Royal Highness intends, in any matters of special importance, to address himself personally to the Executive Commissioners of the respective Colonies; but he would be obliged by all general correspond- ence being carried on with the Secretary to the Royal Commission.

As regards the method of representation to be adopted by cach Colony or group of Colonies at the Exhibition, His Royal Highness specially wishes that, if possible, a single Excentive Commissioner should be appointed, with whom might be associated, if necessary, not more than two or three Assistant- Commissioners.

Enclosure No. 2.

Enclosure No. 1.

10

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVTM GAZETTE OF 3RD JAN., 1885.

The Secretary to the Royal Commission will be prepared to act on behalf of any Colony which may not find it convenient to appoint an independent Commissioner.

An exact date cannot be fixed at this early period, but the Exhibition will probably be opened during the first fortnight in May, 1886. With the ample time which is being given to all those con- cerned, it is sincerely to be hoped that the work of installation may be complete at least a fortnight previous to the date of opening.

As the object of this Exhibition is to represent the progress and the development of each Colony, it has been considered impracticable to call upon the Colonial Governments to comply with any form of Classification, as has been the custom at previous Exhibitions. Each Colony is, therefore, at liberty to make a Classification most suitable to its own requirements.

In furtherance of this idea, His Royal Highness trusts that each Government will take an early opportunity of preparing a Catalogue of the objects intended for exhibition, which it is requested, may, for the sake of uniformity, be modelled somewhat on the principle of the enclosed specimen, more especially as regards size of page and style of type. It would considerably facilitate this object if each Government were to have its Catalogue printed in London, by Messrs. William Clowes & Sons, Limited, the Official Printers and Publishers to the Exhibition. Each Government will be at liberty to sell its own Catalogue, through the Official Publishers to the Exhibition; but it is necessary that the Royal Commission should receive, as soon as practicable, a digest of the Catalogue of each Colony in order that it may be embodied in a General Catalogue of the whole Exhibition, which will be published by the Commission.

Many points of interest will doubtless present themselves to the various Colonies; but His Royal Highness especially desires that careful statistics of each Colony, carrying the information to 1885, should be prepared in a clear and readable form so as to render this valuable information easily understood by the working classes of this country. Maps specially prepared for the information of the public, should also, as far as possible, be prominently shown in the various Courts. It is hoped that these statistics, as well as the maps on a reduced scale, will be largely made use of in the Catalogues.

Much interest is taken in this country in the Woods of the various Colonies, and His Royal Highness would be glad to find that, where Cases are required for the display of goods, these Cases should be made from the native Woods of the Colony, in order that a complete representation of the Woods of the British Empire may be practically shown.

With reference to the building Stones and Marbles of the Colonies, it is suggested that they should be sent over in the form of Pedestals, executed in accordance with the appended sketch to scale, and thereby adding uniformity, and rendering the specimens of commercial value.

As it is possible that the various Colonial Gevernments participating in the Exhibition may desire, as its outcome, that a permanent Colonial Museum should be founded in London, it has been suggested that strong reasons exist for showing the adaptability of its products, generally, in as practical a manner as possible; hence it is desirable that the Raw Product should be displayed in connection with the Manufactured Article.

It has been decided that Commemorative Medals should be given to all those taking part in the Exhibition; and it is hoped to have the assistance of specialists of known repute who will commence to make, at the opening of the Exhibition, exhaustive Reports on the Resources of the various Colonies as represented in the Exhibition. These Reports, issued at an early stage, will take the place of the Jury systems of previous Exhibitions.

Before closing this Memorandum, reference inay briefly be made to special features which His- Royal Highness has in view for the general advantage of the Exhibiting Governments.

It is intended to form a Library and Reading Room, where all Literature relating to the Colonies and India, that it may be possible to collect, may be at hand for reference. Not only will contributions be asked for from the Colonial Governments, but also from Home publishers.

Special arrangements will be provided for the practical illustration, in one special kitchen, of all the Colonial Frozen Meat Industries, and of the Colonial Preserved Meats, Fish and Vegetables. This department will be carried out by the Royal Commission itself, in crder that the due participation of the various interests concerned may be maintained. ·

There will also be a Colonial Fruit and Vegetable Market, which it is hoped that each Government will make arrangements to supply by monthly shipments. This department will also be under the control of the Royal Commission.

An exhibition of Colonial Wines will be organized by the Royal Commission.

A limited space will also be set apart for the exhibition of Living Animals from the Colonies. In assuming the control of these various departments, the Royal Commission wishes to afford to the actual Producers the advantages of a fair display in the Exhibition. The Importers will, no doubt, hereafter benefit, but the interests of the Producers, as Exhibitors, are of the first consideration; and it may be here mentioned that in these departments, as well as generally throughout the Exhibition, only bona fide Colonists can, through their respective Governments, participate in the Exhibition. It will not, therefore, be possible for the Royal Commission to entertain any applications, upon any pretence whatever, from Colonial Importers or Agents in this Country.

BY ORDER.

ABSENT:

The Council met in pursuance of adjournment.

Minutes read and confirmed.

VOTES PASSED BY THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.-The Colonial Secretary moved the adoption of the following vote arranged by the Finance Committee:-

That the Council now vote the sum of Fifty-five thousand six hundred and twenty-five pounds Sterling required as the contribution of this Colony to the effective defence of Hong- kong; it being understood that the armament to be provided by the Imperial Government will be of the best and latest pattern of breech-loading Ordnance, and capable of resisting attacks by the heaviest modern Iron-clads.

The Treasurer seconded the motion.

Mr. KESWICK addressed the Council.

Question-put and passed.

The Governor then addressed the Council, as follows:--

HONOURABLE GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.I thank you in the name of the QUEEN for this unanimous vote of the contribution required by Her Majesty's Government from this Colony towards the effective defence of Hongkong. This is.as we all know,— an object of great Imperial as well as Colonial importance. I entirely agree with you that in the terms of your vote "the armament to be provided by the Imperial Government should "be of the latest and best pattern of breech-loading Ordnance, and capable of resisting attacks by the heaviest modern Iron-clads." I shall press this point in the strongest manner possible on the Home Authorities; and General SARGENT has authorized me to say that he

24

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TM JANUARY, 1835.

will do the same. I have no doubt that we shall be successful; for by the later Parlia- mentary Papers issued on this subject, I find that the original vote for the armament of the Forts at Hongkong has been already doubled. There is also the subjoined paragraph in an Official letter from the War Oflice to the Treasury, dated November 1st, 1884;

(6

"At the time the carlier Parliamentary Estimate was framed, it was intended to provide wrought iron guns as possessing sufficient power for the work they would be likely to be "called upon to perforin. The armaments of the Forts, however, are required to resist the present power of foreign ships which may attack them, and consequently must be of a more "formidable nature than was at first contemplated; therefore, some of the guns have been "chosen from the latest pattern of breech-loading Ordnance; which has greatly increased "the cost."

(6

Once more, Honourable Gentlemen, in the name of the QUEEN, I thank you for this vote. REVISED ESTIMATES, 1885.-The Colonial Secretary laid on the table the revised Estimates for 1885, and made the following statement in connexion therewith :---

GENERAL POST OFFICE, HONGKONG, January 1st, 1885.

S-I have the honour to report on the British Postal service in Hongkong and China during

2. An important extension of Money Order facilities has taken place, in the introduction of Postal Notes. For many years past Money Orders have been obtainable only at Hongkong or Shanghai. Residents at the other ports had to obtain them from one or other of these offices, which could not be arranged without a good deal of delay and trouble. Postal Notes on the United Kingdom for fixed amounts, varying from one shilling to twenty shillings, are now to be had at Canton, Swatow, Amoy, Fochow, Ningpo and Hankow, besides Hongkong and Shanghai. At present both Money Orders aid Postal Notes on the United Kingdom are on sale in these two latter offices, but the Postal Notes elvet such a simplification of accounts as compared with the Money Order system, that, during the present year, the question will be taken into consideration whether it is not possible to abolish Money Orders (on the United Kingdom) and use Postal Notes only.

3. Either means of remittance has its own advantages. The Postal Note is more quickly and easily obtained, it is payable anywhere in the United Kingdom and with less formality than the Money Order, whilst the saving of work it effects in the Post Office is immense. On the other hand the price of the Postal Note is fixed, so that the purchaser does not get the benefit of a rise in Exchange; the commission charged on each note makes the remittance of a broken sum comparatively rather expensive, whilst the sender's having to put seven or eight pieces of paper into his letter instead of one still further alls to this expense. A Postal Note lost is beyond remedy, whereas a Money Order may be lost and the money remain safe. It would however have been impossible to introduce the sale of Money Orders at or smaller offices, but Postal Notes can easily be sold at them all. If Postal Notes are made the moins of remittance it will be possible to continue their sale to an hour much nearer the time of e-Sag the mail than is at present the case with Money Orders.

4. Other additions to our Money Order system are in progress. Arrangements are under con- sideration for the exchange of Money Orders with Portugal, with the United States, and with Hawaii. It is hoped that before another annual Report is presented these exchanges may be in operation. The Mo gynder office now pays its own expenses, if indeed it does not secure a small profit. Instructions rived as to the presentation of Administrative Reports within the first seven days of the new year

trully prevent, however, any satisfactory or complete statement of accounts.

detin for steamers."

5. The subject of a Savings Bank had long been under the consideration of this Department, but the last that every officer of it is overworked, and that no increase to the staff would have been sanctioned arious obstacle. At length a plan was submitted for conducting a Savings Bank two days a wk in the Stamp Office, which, under the same roof as the Post Office, is happily exempt from rushes of work inevitable in the Postal service of a Colony well described as a sort of Clapham for steamers." Whilst this plan was under consideration, however, the Hongkong and Bank offered to carry on a Savings Bank on terus in many respects more favourable to es than those contemplated by the Government scheme. This offer was accepted. Its main age is that the Bank is open every day, instead of two days a week only, and that depositors love $100 to credit can at once open a Banking account and increase their deposits indefinitely. inst this may be set the fact that the deposits are not secured by the Government, but this would to have been no obstacle to the success of a Savings Bank at Shanghai, and need not be here. Hongkong Savings Bank was opened on May 1st, and already more than $50,000 has been

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 10TH JAN., 1885.

6. An attempt was made, in connection with this Savings Bank, to introduce the system, so popular at home, of encouraging children and others to save small sums by means of Postage Stamps. In the United Kingdom every child who can from time to time purchase twelve penny stamps, and who affixes them to a form supplied free at any Post Office, is entitled to be credited with a shilling in the Post Office Savings Bank, which receives more than £200 a week in these little sums alone. It can hardly be said that it was hoped to introduce more thrifty habits amongst a certain class of our younger fellow citizens, but it was felt that at least the attempt should be made. Whether, however, pocket money is not a Hongkong institution, or whether other attractions are too strong, certain it is that the ten-cent system of saving does not seem to take hold of the young here as the penny system does in England. Only $65 has been thus collected since the Bank was opened.

7. It was hoped that another year would not come to an end without the establishment of an effective Parcels Post between China and the United Kingdom. The subject has not been lost sight of and is under consideration. It is to be feared however that one of the points always advocated by this Office-freedom from Customs interference--will not be secured.

8. On the 1st March the Post Office of Macao assumed its proper position as a Portuguese Post Office under the Postal Union, the previous irregular arrangement by which it was worked as a kind of honorary Agency of this Office (but an Agency under no control) being discontinued. The necessity for this change had been more than once urged on the Post Office of Macao, but until the arrival of the present Governor of that Settlement nothing was done in the matter.

9. Corea is also moving in the direction of admission into the Postal Union, and it is quite possible that that ignis fatuus which has long flitted before the eager eyes of philatelists--a Corean Postage stamp-may ere long become a tangible reality. For years past this Office has been accustomed to receive almost touching appeals for Corean Stamps, when there was about as much possibility of Similar applications obtaining them as there is of getting the postage stamps (if any) of the moon. are sometimes received begging for the stamps of Kashgar, of Thibet, &c.

10. A considerable increase in the sale of stamps is due to the action of the San Francisco Customs in seizing all the letters which Chinese passengers attempt to smuggle in their baggage or about their persons. The return of 25,000 of these smuggled letters from San Francisco by one steamer created something like a panic in the Chinese Community.

11. Through the co-operation of the Police department arrangements have been completed for signal- ling the arrival of the English mail from the new Kowloon Police Station at night, and when the wea- ther is cloudy and the l'eak signal station obscured. These arrangements have already been most successful, and effectually prevent the serious inconveniences connected with the arrival of an unsignal-

led mail.

12. Enquiries were set on foot as to whether it would not be possible to have the French mail sorted at Singapore during the stay of the steamer there, but the practical difficulties were, as before, found to be too many for any hope of success.

13. On September 9th the P. & O. packet Brindisi arrived here with both the English and French mails on board, owing to the Djemnak's having been quarantined in Egypt. The mail officer on board had sorted all the letters by both mails, which were ready for delivery five minutes after the bags reached the Post Office. The papers took an hour and a quarter to sort, the operations being much retarded by the thy tarred bags in which the continental mails were enclosed as a kind of fetish against cholera. Quarantine as applied to mails is generally imagined by scientific authorities to be useless, but it is not so. It induces a salutary exercise of patience on the part of Postal Officers.

14. The English mail once arrived unsorted, from a cause which could not have been forescen. The sorting was completed on shore in less than an hour and a half, in spite of hindrances from tarred bags.

15. The warlike operations between France and China have of course had their effect on the work of this Department as on everything else. The Messageries line between Hongkong and Shanghai has been temporarily discontinued, and the mails are conveyed by private steamers. There has been some difficulty in getting mails to Foochow, and it was latterly found impossible to get correspondence for the French fleet delivered there at all. On October 3rd, when the Saghalien arrived with the French mail, some excitement prevailed amongst the labouring classes of Chinese here, and it was not easy to get the mails on shore, nor to get them brought up to the Post Office. During the last two months the Island of Formosa has been blockaded, and the opportunities of exchanging correspondence have of course been very fitful.

16. Considerable numbers of dye and sugar samples have been intercepted during the their transit through the post, and destroyed, the attention of the despatching Office being in all cases called to the fact, and the name and address of the sender being forwarded to it. Samples of aniline dye are most anischievous. No matter how they are packed, the contents generally leak out, and one of them will spoil a whole bag of other correspondence.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 10TH JAN., 1885. 37

17. The Assistant Postmaster General (Mr. TRAVERS) went to Europe on leave in February last and has been temporarily replaced by Mr. W. D. HUTCHISON, whose energy and suggestive mind have slo him a most valuable addition to a Department otherwise much undermanned. Whilst the habit, far too common in the Colonial Service, of thinking anybody good enough for the Post Office, can only to deply deplored, it does not follow that because an Officer has no previous acquaintance with Postal

will be useless when transferred to it. On the contrary, the "old hand," who has been ed to the Post Office for years, is apt to get into a groove, and into that state of mind which is own as not being able to see the wood for the trees. Much progress in the Postal service has resulted in the suggestions of outsiders. Sir ROWLAND HILL (then Mr. HILL) had no knowledge of Postal when he pressed his reforms upon an unwilling Department. A striking improvement in sorting, which has been copied here, was urged upon the Singapore Post Office by a member of the community; , similarly, both Mr. TRAVERS and Mr. HUTCHISON, within a few weeks of their appointments, had le valuable suggestions on points which for years had escaped the notice of the trained staff of this

1. Otherwise, the Department has been very short-handed. No summer is recollected with so ness. The senior clerk was thrown from a vehicle and so severely injured as to keep him oil for six months. Another and equally valuable officer caught a chill from working in wet during one of our heavy rushes of night work) and this resulted in a kind of paralytic seizure kept him absent for a long time. Sometimes there would be as many as five absent (out of ) whilst even those who were here were working under difficulties from inflamed feet, swollen toothache, &c. If it is remembered that in the Post Office it is impossible to get in an extra hand fra beginner is worse than useless in the manual work of the office for at least three months) it will hy son that the officers of this Department have not had, during the past summer, exactly the easy time of it which some persons are pleased to believe they enjoy. Notwithstanding these drawbacks, there has never been a period when so few complaints have been received as to alleged missing letters as during the year under review. One firm indeed reported the loss of several entire mails for Europe, containing most valuable enclosures, but there is no doubt these letters were stolen on their way to the Post Office, whither they were sent without the precaution even of a chit-book. The usual nuinber of complaints has of course been made as to the non-arrival or late arrival of papers from home, and in some instances they have been urged with a good deal of temper. It is hard to see why this Depart- ment is to be made responsible for the laches of London errand-boys. The papers do not arrive, and there is an end of it. There are two almost invariable causes for these delays. Late Posting, and Insuffi- cint Payment. News-agents find it easy to throw all the blame on the Post Office, and their customers. seem to prefer to believe them.

19. The London Post Office raised the question whether the present subsidised mail service cannot be discontinued on the expiration of the existing contract, and the mails carried by private steamers as is the rule across the Atlantic. The Report of this Department is printed as an Appendix.

20. Allusion is made in that report to the complaints which, since the discontinuance in 1881 of the subsidised P. & O. service to Japan, have been received from all the foreign settlements there. This matter is gone into so fully in a correspondence with the London Post Office, also printed as an Alix, that it is not necessary to add more than one observation, which is this. If the Editors of Japanese newspapers really imagine that the violent language they are fond of using towards this Office is likely to do any good, it may surely be supposed they would take the trouble to forward copies of their remarks to the Department believed to be in fault. So far from this being the case, there has been considerable difficulty in getting to know the dates on which the mails reach Japan, or any other details. Yet obviously the first step towards rectifying a grievance is to find out what it is.

21. One word may perhaps be permitted as to the local delivery of correspondence in Hongkong. This is what the late MR. FAWCETT said of recent improvements in delivery in English Provincial

towns;-

"As bearing upon the increase of deliveries, the great importance of affording every practicable facility which would sparage local correspondence has continued to be kept steadily in view. This object can be in many cases much promoted increasing the number of collections from pillar boxes in provincial towns, It is often found possible in this way to sices the delivery of a letter in the town within two or three, hours after it has been posted.”

That is in England, where everything is arranged for the arrival of mails by Railway at fixed hours. Now let us see what is demanded in this "Clapham Junction for steamers," where nothing is get to happen but the unexpected. A resident in Canton sends on board the morning steamer a letter for Hongkong. He does not post it, that would be too much to ask, he tosses it on board without postage stamp or prepayment of any kind. It reaches this Office, unpaid of course, during afternoon. The American mail, we will say, is leaving at three, the English mail at four, and an Australian mail at five. In a word, within three hours mails have to be despatched to every part of world. Meanwhile the Coast steamer has arrived, with half a dozen others, from Saigon, Hoihow, Manila, the Straits, &c., &c. The Canton resident's correspondent considers it very hard if his paid letter is not brought to him and the postage collected in time for him to answer it by the

return boat which leaves at half past five. That is, he must receive it within half an hour at most from the time of its reaching the Post Office. The above is not at all an extreme or exceptional case, but fairly embodies the general view here as to local delivery, and the problem the Post Office has to solve. When an occasional failure occurs in solving it, it may be permissible to repeat as some grain of encouragement, "It is often found possible to secure the delivery of a letter in the town within two or three hours after it has been posted."

(B.)-REPORT ON THE PROPOSED ABOLITION OF SUBSIDIES.

GENERAL POST OFFICE, HONGKONG, September 1st, 1884.

SIR,--With reference to Lord DERBY's Despatch No. 174 of July 25th, on the subject of the arrangements to be made on the termination of the present mail contract, I have the honour to report as follows.

2. Lord DERBY's Despatch, which was referred to me by order of the Governor, raises three questions:--

(a.) Would it be possible to do away with subsidies, and to entrust the mails to the most suitable vessels starting on the voyage for China, paying by weight only, as is about to be done in the case of mails for the United States.

(b.) Could the mails be transported by way of Bombay and Calcutta.

(c.) As to revision of the existing distribution of expense.

3. A memorandum from Mr FAWCETT, the Postmaster General of the United Kingdom, which is quoted by Lord DERBY, expresses the opinion that carriage of the mails by all or any of the companies running steamers between England and China would afford the communities here more frequent and less expensive means of communication than at present. It would be a very important point to this Colony if such a result could be brought about, because the existing mail service is costing us £6,000 a year. But I am of opinion that whatever economy may result from the suppression of subsidies, frequency of communication will be lessened; and regularity of communication, which is at least as important as either frequency or quickness, will have a tendency to disappear.

4. In forecasting what would happen on the withdrawal of the P. & O. subsidy, an important element in the question is, what would be the movements of the P. & O. steamers themselves? It seems reasonable to suppose that what has taken place between Hongkong and Japan would be reproduced all along the line. That is to say the boats would start with fair regularity perhaps, but their movements and their ports of call would be entirely governed by considerations relating to cargo, so that it would be quite possible that a P. & O. steamer which had left Europe before the French mail might arrive here after it.

5. There are enough steamers, take them all together, to allow of a mail from Europe arriving in Hongkong every two or three days. Such a state of things would be indeed desirable if it could be counted on. The mails would be smail, would be quickly dealt with, and there would be much less rush and impatience about their distribution than at present. But it is as useless to hope for this as it would be to believe that meteorologists will ever be able to arrange that rain shall fall only when it is convenient. The steamers would come in, as they do at present, three and four within a day or two, and then no more perhaps for nearly a fortnight.

6. I submit that there is little analogy between the lines of steamers plying to China and those which cross the Atlantic. There are no ports of call in the Atlantic, the voyage occupies little over a week, and first-class steamers leave regularly enough to ensure the regular arrival of the mails at either end of the route. But the voyage to China occupies from 4 weeks to 8 or even 9 weeks, according to the class of vessel; there are several Ports of call; and the chances of

passing one another would introduce endless confusion into the service. tinually arriving after those which left later. I do not see how the London Post Office is to form any reasonable Letters which left London earlier would which of three steamers leaving London or Liverpool for China within the same week will arrive first. We cannot it between here and Shanghai, a voyage of 4 days! The experience of this Office in transmitting mails for Japan P. & O. subsidy was withdrawn shews how impossible it is to secure any thing like regularity of arrival by means teamers alone. The most anxious care has been exercised to select the best opportunities, but the result has been Er communities of Japan have been continually complaining ever since the change was made. With regard to ward mails, few persons except merchants would ever have much idea when they would leave, and, as often as norier would be

very short.

I therefore the French packets continued running, the whole situation would resolve itself into heavy fortnightly rwarded by their means. The outward mails would take at least four hours to sort, and we should have all the old Kain (now almost forgotten) of firms having their correspondence addressed to Singapore and sent up by private 5 to get it quickly, &c. This might be economical, but it would not be pleasant, nor could it be called progress. It is useless to suppose that any inducement would prevail on the public to correspond by private steamers if the h mails were available.

could be forwarded with fair regularity by private steamers for 6d. I believe there was only one person in the When the postage to and from England was 1/4d. by the mail, every body here knew that munity who took advantage of the lower rate, and that person was a lady.

The abolition of a subsidised service could be effected to some extent by not extending the contract beyond Singa- quite sufficient steamers between Singapore and Hongkong, and between Hongkong and Shanghai, to carry ut any very serious delay, and probably the English mail would always reach Hongkong and generally ore the next French mail overtook it. Between Ceylon or India and Singapore there are not enough Many of the Canal boats as they are called come direct from Suez to Penang or Singapore without calling I do not wish to be understood as recommending the curtailing of the subsidised line, but the Home Government for information and I merely say that this could be done. The results would be disagreeable in many ways. rity would disappear from the service. Marine sorting would have to be discontinued. Persons would get their through irregular channels to obtain them quicker. A responsible and very thankless task would be thrown on the re and Hongkong Offices of selecting the steamers to carry on the mails. Whatever steamer was selected, the tity concerned would but too often be apt to consider it was the wrong one, for that community would criticise, the event, a choice which would have to be made before it. Continual complaints, like those which have arisen in since the P. & O. service was discontinued, would become common in Shanghai and in Hongkong also. 11. With regard to the suggestion of forwarding mails via Bombay, no doubt it might be done if there were any ular means of communication between either Calcutta or Madras and Hongkong. But except the monthly Indian amers from Calcutta, and a monthly French steamer from Calcutta and Madras, there are none. re arrived at in consultation with Mr. F. R. Hoag of the Indian Post Office.

But unless some regular weckly or at least fortnightly means existed of bringing the mails on from Madras, this route would be useless for all practical purposes.

SIR,--We beg to bring to your notice the great inconvenience we have been put to by the action of the Postinaster in Hongkong.

The mails from London of 27th June arrived in Hongkong 31st July, and the connecting Steamer of the P. & O. Com- pany, viz. the Thibet, which, unfortunately for us, is not under contract with H. B. M. Government, left that port on 2nd instant for this via Nagasaki and Kobe, arriving here only yesterday morning. The Steamer Gordon Castle left Hongkong 3rd instant, and arrived here this inorning, but, for some inscrutable reason, our muails were detained until 4th instant, and then put on board a slow vessel called the Altnacraig, which as yet (11 A.M.) has not made her appearance.

Since the subsidy for the Japan line was withdrawn we have been frequently subjected to inconvenience of this kind, and we trust H. B. M. Government may yet see fit to renew it.

Meantime we, in common with our fellow residents here, will feel greatly obliged if any representations or instructions from you to the Hongkong Post Office will tend to prevent such mismanagement as the case we have now described.

We remain, &c.,

The Hongkong Post Office to the London Post Office.

(Signed)

BISSET & Co.

No. 846.

GENERAL POST OFFICE, HONGKONG, 23rd October, 1884.

SIR, I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter No. 295,918 of September 19th on the subject of a complaint from Messrs. BISSET & Co. of Yokohama relating to the delay which took place in transmitting to Yokohama the mail despatched from your Office on June 27th.

2. It is characteristic of the treatment which this Department receives from the Yokohama community that Messrs. BISSET & Co. should endeavour to get behind the Hongkong Post Office with a complaint of which no copy was forwarded to me. This is the second attempt of the kind that has been made. It is equally characteristic that Messrs. BISSET & Co. should not even wait till the steamer as to which they complained had come in, nor for the full explanation which, as they very well know, has always been afforded whenever any difficulty has arisen, but should, as is customary at Yokohama, fly at this Office with all manner of charges before they were in possession of the facts of the case.

3. It has been explained to the public of Yokohama again and again that it is absolutely impossible for this Office to predict what steamer will reach that port first, if only for the reason that the departures of vessels from Hongkong are frequently postponed at the last moment, or, what makes the matter still more difficult, delayed from hour to hour, the Agent meanwhile assuring this Office that he expects to get the vessel away any minute. Meanwhile other steamers may have left, and if they arrive at Yokohama first the outcry against the Post Office begins all over again as if it were the first time the subject had been heard of.

4. In the case in question this Office was no doubt to some extent misled by incorrect information. The real cause of the delay however was not the slowness of the Altnacraig, but the fact that at the last moment a fight broke out amongst the crew, which detained the steamer here from Saturday evening till Tuesday morning. When intelligence of her detention reached the Post Office the other steamers were gone. The same cause of delay inight have happened to either of them. Every possible enquiry had been made by this Department, and, under the same circumstances, the same decision would again be come to. No reasonable would have thought of putting the mail on board the Thibet, yet, as it

person happened, the Thibet was the first to arrive. The commander of the Gordon Castle, the only other steamer, was himself one of the persons who advised this Office to send the mail by the Altnacraig, although he would have preferred to draw the allowance made by the Japanese Post Office for carrying it.

5. Two routes are open for the conveyance of the English mails for Yokohama, viz., by direct steamers, or by the P. & O. steamers which call at Nagasaki and Kobe. The direct route should of course be the quickest, but then the Whenever this P. & O. steamers are faster than many of the private ships by which the mails would otherwise be sent. Office selects the unsuccessful route, the Yokohama papers immediately proclaim the other as that which should invariably be adopted. Thus, if a direct steamer arrives first, it is asked why the Hongkong Post Office cannot always send the mail by direct steamer. The next time, the reverse happens, and then it is demanded why the mails are not regularly sent by as Messrs. BISSET & Co. call it, because it happened to be a success on that the P. & O. steamer ("the connecting steamer occasion.)

6. The Yokohama community forget also that whilst merchants and Bankers here prepare their correspondence for Japan in duplicate, so that it is comparatively easy for them to secure the earliest arrival of documents, this Office has only one mail to send.

7. This Office has not failed to secure the arrival of the mail in Yokohama by the first steamer more than three or four times in four years. Once, and once only, we were distinctly to blame, as was amply acknowledged. If this sort of correspondence is to continue, I shall have to consider whether it will not be better to put the mails for Japan on whichever steamer is leaving first, no matter what vessel it is or by what route it is going. The Yokohama Chamber of Commerce has been asked to appoint an Agent here who would direct this Office in the matter, but this suggestion has been ignored, in fact none of the Japanese communities will take the smallest trouble to secure the carrying out of their wishes.

I have, &c.,

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.—No. 24.

The following Annual Report from the Superintendent of the Botanical and Afforestation

ent, for the year 1884, is published for general information.

BOTANIC GARDEN, 7th January, 1885.

S-I have the honour to submit the Annual Report on this Department for 1884.

2. With the completion of the laying out and arrangement of the last remaining portion of land for garden extension (paragraph No. 4 of my Report for 1883), the Gardens have developed as far as seems possible in the locality in which they are situated. Any further extension may be desirable will have to be in the nature of branches at some distance from the central Therefore the available resources and energy have been chiefly directed during the year to improvement and completion of works which needed closer attention and more support. The ptionally sterile nature of the soil of this "barren rock," the exposed aspect of the Gardens and ee of water for artificial watering in the dry season, necessitate the expenditure of a great deal so thought, time, and means than is usually experienced in establishments of this kind. Whenever rtunities can be got for a few important alterations I hope to be able to undertake them. Amongst should be the re-arrangement of the Fountain Terrace and adjacent grounds. The trees on the race have quite outgrown themselves for the positions which they occupy; most of them should removed and a more suitable arrangement of planting substituted, but time and means prevent this carried out at present. If these means had been available I should have much wished to carry et the work at once.

3. The Typhoon of September worked a good deal of mischief in the Gardens both by the force the wind and the deluge of rain with which it was accoinpanied. Limbs and branches from the trees and shrubs were much broken. while smaller things were extensively up-rooted; amongst r a large number of roses and Poinsettias were destroyed. Many of the remaining Poinsettias del of their leaves and in consequence they have been unable to produce the large floral nets which they otherwise would have had. A large number of Poinsettias were planted

A large number of labels have been lettered and put down, so that at qon of each kind of tree or shrub has now its name affixed to it. The specimen pot being ticketed.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT. GAZETTE OF 17TH JAN., 1885.

7. New ground has been broken up, prepared and planted with New introductions as well as with older kinds which wore required for ornamental purposes especially to meet, when they are sufliciently grown, the increasing demand for cut flowers. For this service we shall have yet to make very considerable provision. It is to be regretted that no suitable piece of ground is available, without the expenditure of mach money on it, for the special purpose of growing a supply of flowers for cutting instead of having to make so great a drain on those in the Gardens. A piece of land which might be obtained, with the consent of the Government, just over the nullah to the cast of the Garden might be converted from its present exceedingly rough condition into a passable reserve garden, if it can be saved from being further deprived of the surface soil in the meantime. I would strongly urge the advisability of placing this ground at once in the charge of this department, so that it might be duly conserved for possibie future requirements.

8. The Herbaceous plant borders on each side of the Owl-house walk, in consequence of their having become unsuitable for the class of plants which they contained have been turfed down and lines of Camellias and Azaleas planted in the turf.

9. A plot of ground near the north-cast entrance was prepared and planted with representative species of Scitamineous and Amaryllidaceous plants which were removed chiefly from the borders in the New Garden that were turfed down.

10. Near the Caine Road entrance the bank which had been denuded of grass by the shade cast from large trees has been converted into a Rockery and planted with ferns and miscellaneous plants. Other objectionable parts in the same locality I purpose dealing with this year so that they may be brought more into harmony with the rest of the Gardens.

11. The New Nursery described in paragraph 4 of last year's report has proved of great advantage for the work for which it was intended. Because of lack of funds its arrangements, however, are not so complete as they should be, but I hope to secure these bit by bit.

12. The new Plant House has well met the requirements for the better cultivation of some plants grown in pots. A similar structure, but with some improvements on the old one, has just been completed. 51

It is 1 feet long by 22 feet wide. A new glass-house between the two is still wanted for the cultivation of plants susceptible to ill effects from cold in winter and from excessive rains in It would be most desirable that these structures should have a more ornamental appearance, but so far the funds which were available for building tliem only barely sufficed to provide what was absolutely necessary for cultivable purposes only. In due course I hope that the present structures will be replaced with ornamental and more durable ones, at least equal to those with which, most gardens of any standing are provided.

the wet season.

13. The system of Plant sales which I first officially suggested in 1882 and which were inaugurated four months ago have been more appreciated by the public than I anticipated they would be at the commencement. About 1,500 plants have been sold up to the end of the year. It will take some little time to learn what the public really require and more time to provide for those requirements, but I hope that we shall be able to meet them fully, and probably to develop new ones, as time goca Of course we have not been able to do more than propagate and grow on in small pots plants for sale. There would however be a considerable demand for specimen plants ready to at once furnish verandah parapets, but we have not yet facilities for carrying out the cultivation of such plants. If I can possibly sce my way to make this successful it shall have consideration.

on.

14. A slight increase has been made in the number of Birds and quadrupeds, but we cannot go much further without additional accommodation. The fine Siamese honey-bear which we had for many years was lost a few months ago. Mr. E. M. SATOW, C.M.G., H. B. M. Consul at Bangkok, however, most kin lly sent another one from Bangkok to replace it. The young one has grown rapidly and is now in fine condition. Two fine storks were also kindly given by Captain STEWART; they are thriving well. Miss. WALKDEN also generously presented a nice deer, a fine specimen of the argus pheasant was sent by Mr. W. H. FORBES, but this, I much regret to say, fell a victim to cold, apparently.

15. The devastation committed by Ants in gardens is so great, and effectual remedies are so little known that it will be useful, no doubt, to many people to make known the success of a plan which has been here adopted this year to protect seeds and plants in the open ground. The remedy is carbolic acid diluted in water. With one part of acid in 50 of water a line is watered all round seed beds or patches of ground when the seeds are sown, afterwards a daily application of half the strength is made until the seedlings are beyond the power of their enemies. This has been found a great success when ants were not already in the ground operated on, as they seem to have great objections to crossing the saturated line.

16. The plants of Star anise which Mr. H. KOPSCH, Commissioner of Customs at Pakhoi, kindly procured for us in 1882 from the district where it is cultivated by the Chinese have made very satisfac- tory progress, and I think it is probable that they will flower this year, when, if they do so, it will be possible to settle the question which has been long in doubt as to what the species of Illicium is which Star anise of commerce is obtained from.

17. Exchanges of plants and seeds have been conducted with the various establishments with which relations are in existence. The number of plants received was 800, and of bags, boxes and packets of seeds 201, of animals 10, and Wardian cases 9, from 42 contributors.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 17TH JAN., 1885.

22. As an appendix, I attach a list of Additions to the Hongkong flora which have been discovered since Dr. HANCE's valuable supplement was published in 1871. The localities and dates, and names of individuals refer to the places where the plants were found, the time of the discoveries, and the names of the discoverers. In those cases where descriptions or notices of the plants have been published the Journals or Magazines which contain them are referred to. No list has been made public for 13 years, and a number of additions have not been recorded at all, although many entirely new species have been described and published, chiefly in the journal of Botany. This list will not only be inter- esting but it should be of much use to workers at the Hongkong flora. It will serve a good purpose until a descriptive list of additions is published, a work which is much needed. I have to thank Dr. H. F. HANCE, H. B. M., Acting Consul at Canton, for valuable information and assistance in the preparation of the list.

23. As new discoveries of plants are continually being made in Hongkong we may yet expect many interesting additions to the number already known when the Island is more completely searched.

24. The Re-arrangement of the herbarium has been completed and a good foundation now exists on which to build up what should become in the future the chief herbarium in China.

AFFORESTATION.

25. The work of the year has been chiefly devoted to the rearing and planting of the China pine as before. The Total number of trees planted is 330,019, and of sites sown 384,149. This kind of tree we must look to chiefly for the furnishing of the hills with forest vegetation, as it is the only one which experience would lead me to plant in large quantities in most of the localities where afforestation can be successfully carried on.

26. Other kinds have been experimented with, several new ones having been added to the list during the year, but most of the exotic trees must be provided with much more favourable conditions for tree growth than those which the China pine requires; these favourable conditions exist in small areas only, and they are often widely separated, which makes the management of them a great deal more difficult than if extensive areas could be obtained in localities convenient of access. The conditions most favourable are good soil, an adequate amount of moisture in the soil, and especially shelter from winds. All of these conditions usually decrease in proportion as we ascend the hills, therefore I have chiefly limited the areas selected for planting to the lower portions of the hills first where the expendi- ture of labour and money is likely to give quicker and more certain results than planting in the upper regions where the results are less satisfactory and slower of accomplishment. These higher portions of the hills it will be timme enough to take in hand when planting is complete in those places where better effects are produced. At the same time plantings on a limited scale, but sufficient for the purpose, have been made for experiment in localities where the conditions are as varied as possible, so that when the time arrives for advancing the work into exposed and higher regions a certain amount of experience will have been acquired for guidance in conducting the work, so that unnecessary waste of Government mor.ey may be saved in extensive works.

27. No operations on a large scale should be instituted until perfectly reliable practical data have been procured. It is so easy to build up a pleasing theory of apparently possible achievements that many people often fall into the temptation and only find their mistake when a touch of practice upsets all their calculations.

28. Tree planting begun in the second week of December 1883, and it was finished in the third week of June of the year under report. The season, in consequence of the rain having been more evenly distributed than usual, was extremely favourable for planting.

29. Upwards of 9,000 Gum trees, consisting of fourteen species of Eucalyptus were planted on the lands bordering the northern side of Kennedy Road. As stated in par. No. 65 of my report for 1383, species which are indigenous to Queensland were selected as being the most likely to succeed in this climate. They were planted during February and March when they were between six inches and a foot high. Great care was taken in the preparation of the ground for their reception. Scarcely any deaths occurred after planting, and the trees have made very satisfactory progress up to the present, the different species ranging from three to ten feet in height. The places where these trees are planted are fairly well sheltered and the soil is tolerably good. So good results are, however, not to be generally expected here from gum trees. Twenty thousand more gum trees have this year been raised. for next year's planting. Most of these will be planted, at the request of the Military Authorities, in the vicinity of the Military Sanitarium at 900 feet above sea level for the expected benefit of the inhabitants of the Sanitarium.

31. A good number of Camphor and Cork-Oak trees have also been reared in the nurserics for hating out during the coming season. The acorns from which the cork-oak trees were raised were ured from Spain. They were not in good condition when they arrived but about a quarter germi- ted and the seedlings made rapid, but rather weak, growth.

32. Many of the Cassia (Cinnamomum Cassia) trees, although they had been planted in the most heltered position that could be found for them, suffered greatly from the October typhoon, otherwise they have continued to make satisfactory progress.

33. Plantations of the Varnish tree (Aleurites vernicia) received a liberal supply of manure and the tres had the soil well dug about their roots. The effects of these operations are very marked, the trees having immediately greatly strengthened and developed. There are about 40,000 of these trees.

31. A plantation of the Chinese Tea-oil plant was also treated in a similar manner as the above. these plants there are about 2,000 so far doing well. It is rather early yet to judge of their ultimate

5. The political troubles in China have prevented our obtaining a supply this year of seeds of varnish tree in consequence of missionaries not being resident in the interior. Efforts which have mule to get seeds through Chinese agents have not yet been successful, but I hope yet to get It is always extremely difficult to procure seeds or plants from any distance through Chinese.

Upwards of 1,000 trees-all that it was practicable to transplant-were removed from the line the cutting for the new conduit was inade. In the Happy Valley woods 200 indigenous other trees and 300 pine trees were filled to provide for the progress of the conduit. At the t of the Surveyor General this work, which had been done at his request, was suspended in con- e of some alteration which he stated it would be necessary to make in the line of the conduit. ons of many of the trees which were felled have been retained for wood specimens. When the

of clearing off trees is continued there will be opportunity to secure a further stock of specimens.

Sacrificing trees which should not be cut merely for the sake of getting specimens.

7. The Forest Guards had twenty-one cases for prosecution before the Magistrates, out of which convictions were obtained. The sentences of the prisoners were from two to fourteen days

. The grass-cutters continue to do much mischief both directly and indirectly to the plantations. such steps as those I recommended a year ago are taken, I fear that mischief will continue The loss of natural aids to reproduction is always to be regretted as these can be obtained more effectively, extensively, and economically than artificial ones.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 25.

The following Annual Report from the Government Astronomer, for the year 1884, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 17th January, 1885.

W. H. MARSH,

Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG Observatory, 1st January, 1885.

¿

SIR,--For the information of His Excellency the Governor I have the honour to forward my annual report for 1884.

2. The necessity for an Observatory in Hongkong was recognised years ago. In 1879 the Royal Society suggested its establishment, and in 1881 a report was drawn up by Colonel PALMER, R.E., but his suggestions were not carried out, as the scheme submitted by him was considered to be too extensive for a beginning.

3. In May 1882 the Surveyor General submitted a report with reference to the Astronomical and Meteorological Observatory to the Secretary of State for the Colonics. The Astronomer Royal, to whom a copy of this report was forwarded, was of opinion, that the smaller and simpler scheme therein suggested, would suffice for present requirements, and that the most pressing needs of the Colony were a time-ball and a meteorological service. The Surveyor General's report received then His Lordship's approval, and early in 1883 I was appointed Director of the Observatory.-Meantime the Kew Com- mittee, the Meteorological Council, the Meteorological Reporter to the Governinent of India and other authorities had opportunities of giving expression to their views on the subject.

4. I spent the following spring in inspecting the apparatus, that had been previously ordered or that I was instructed to order, and arranging details with the makers, as well as in studying the methods of observation adopted at the Royal Observatory, and the verification of meteorological and magnetic instruments at Kew.

5. The meteorological and magnetic instruments were ready before my departure from England. The Crown Agents for the Colonies arranged to have them carried without transhipment to Hongkong, and I started in June as passenger on the same steamer, accompanied by Mr. F. G. FIGG, who in the mean time had been appointed to be my first assistant. The horological apparatus and the time-ball were not ready till long after my arrival in the Colony.

6. On my arrival here, I found the foundations of the Observatory already laid. In fact some progress had been made with the brickwork. The Surveyor General had selected the site some years ago, and it proved to be by far the best spot in the Colony for making scientific observations. The neighbourhood of the City of Victoria would not be suitable, as the mountains shut off from view a great portion of the southern sky, extending up to 25° of altitude, and for the same reason it is not possible to determine the true velocity and direction of the wind near the city.. It is also likely, that the ferruginous rocks would deviate the plumb line, not to mention the magnetic needles.

7. I spent the following months partly in arranging details connected with the building and the foundations for the instruments, partly on a tour to the Treaty Ports of China, undertaken by order of His Excellency the Governor, to arrange to have meteorological observations made and regularly forwarded to the Observatory. The Inspector General of the Imperial Maritime Customs of China, who has contributed so much to forward the cause of science in that country, subsequently ordered a copy of all meteorological observations henceforth made in the harbours and lighthouses along the coast to be forwarded to me, and instruments of approved pattern are now being distributed among the stations.---It is certain, that not only the meteorology of China will benefit by Sir ROBERT HART'S enlightened action, but the meteorology of the northern hemisphere will be forwarded, when reliable observations are made on a uniform plan in that extensive country.

8. The Observatory is built on the peninsula of Kaulung facing the harbour. It stands on the top of Mount Elgin, a small hill built up of decomposed granite, rising abruptly on all sides from the surrounding level ground and culminating in two prominences distant about 400 feet from each other. The top of the eastern prominence is flat, and forms, roughly speaking, a circle of about 200 feet diameter. Here the main building is situated. The magnetic hut is erected on the western prominence, the top of which was levelled and forms a rectangle 36 feet by 30 feet.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 17TH JAN., 1885. 57

. By the 1st January the main building was so far finished, that I could take up my residence and start tri-diurnal meteorological observations. It is a rectangular block, 83 feet long and 45 (not including the transit room). The upper floor is devoted to my quarters. The ground prises 4 rooms, each 20 feet long, 16 feet wide and 14 feet high, and 2 small rooms behind In the entrance hall are placed the telegraphic apparatus, through which the Observatory is with the Police Stations in Kaulung, and through them with the Central Police Station in To the right is my office, where the library is placed, contained in glazed teak-wood elek room, behind which is the galvanic battery room, is to the right of this. From the a door leads into the transit room. To the left of the entrance hall is the computing room, ich is the instrument room, where the barometers, the barograph and the thermograph are d which is the photographic laboratory.-Every part of the two last rooms, including ::or and furniture, is painted dark red, and there are only a few panes of double red glass in

Thonetic hut is 17 feet long, 13 feet broad, and the roof rises 11 feet high. It is made I white outside and inside. Bamboo chips instead of nails were used in its construction frniture. It has double doors, respectively louvered and glazed, to the north and w windows on cach side as well as two frosted glass windows in the roof, which throw verders. On top of massive teak-wood blocks sunk 33 feet in the ground and rising 4 the floor are placed the unifilar magnetometer and the dip-circle. The former is placed the latter, and it is therefore convenient to observe the pole-star reflected from the speculum ing the door. The sun and stars near the prime vertical can be observed through the windows er side. The hut is very comfortable but is placed at an inconvenient distance from the main

A broad road connects the two buildings and includes a bridge across the gap between the The magnetic observations are printed in my report of the 15th December (Appendix I to the ming Observations and Researches in 1884") and it is therefore unnecessary to make further ce to these observations.

12. As the time-service has not yet been started and as no astronomical observations have been sh, it would appear most proper to defer the description of the astronomical instruments, some hich have not yet been erected.

1. The tri-diurnal meteorological observations, that were started at 10 a. on the 1st January, tinued up to the end of the year. In January and February observations were made at 10 a. 10 p. as printed in the Weather Reports for those months. In March and April they were 10a. 1 p. 4 p. 7.45 p. and 10 p. From the 1st May till the end of the year they were made 1p. 4p. and 10 p. From the 1st April till the 1st October the standard barometer was bowl also at 1 a. Phenomena occurring at other hours including clouds of the cirrus type

arefully noted.

The observations made at 7" 45" p. (7' 0" a. Washington Mean Time) the epoch adopted International Simultaneous Meteorological Observations were transmitted to the Chief Signal U.S.A.. Washington, D. C. They embrace the height of the barometer reduced to 32° ad to sea level, dry and damp bulb thermometers, relative humidity, direction and velo- wind, and also observations on rain, clouds and state of the weather. Since the 1st May hatter observations were actually made at the time, it being preferred to read off the other from the curves described by the self recording instruments below described.

15. From the 1st January a new series of meteorological observations made according to my motions for making Meteorological Observations" were commenced at diferent points in the At Victoria Peak observations of the barometer, dry and damp bulb thermometers, direction the wind, clouds. sea and state of the weather are made at 7 a. 10 a. 1 p. 4p. 7 p. and 10 p. for 10 a. 4p. and 10 p. are published in the monthly reports. At the latter hour the self- thermometers including black bulb and grass minimum are read. The rainfall is collected

One of them is an old roof-gauge. The other is placed one foot above the ground. Its from the latter are published.

observations being made at so high a level are of considerable importance, and it is to that the authorities have not yet made arrangements for having observations made also at

e of self-recording instruments the observations are not complete without the 4a. It would moreover be desirable at some future time to erect a self-recording anemometer similar to the one on top of the Observatory. The comparison of the two records ly reveal certain most important features connected with the wind prevalent at different ve sea level, which would deepen our insight into the law of storms in the China Sea.

'ape d'Aguilar observations of thermometers, wind, clouds, sea-surface and weather are . 10. p. and 10 p. as published in the monthly reports, but as these observations are accuracy, their publication with the exception of the state of the sea-surface, will be dis-

I next year.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 17TH JAN, 1885.

18. At Green Island the wind, clouds, sea-surface and weather are observed at 4 a. 10 a. 4 p. and 10 p. As the island is within 4 miles of the Observatory the station is not supplied with instruments, but the observer appears to be doing his best. At Stone Cutters' Island, which is within 2 miles of the Observatory but at a much lower level, the rain is acasured at 10 a. as published.

19. All the observations made at these four stations are revised, corrected and reduced at the Observatory, and the instruments &c. are occasionally inspected.

20. The barograph was erected in March and worked without interruption since the 1st April. The slab is placed on a teak-wood table, which is firmly screwed to the floor.

21. The image of the flame of a Kerosine lamp, enlarged by a condenser, is thrown upon the void space, narrowed by a slit, above the mercury of a barometer of about three quarter inches internal diameter. By means of a photographic lens an image of this illuminated slit is thrown upon a cylinder covered with a sheet of sensitised paper, 23 inches long and 5 inches wide, which is revolved by a clock work, so that the portion covered by the image moves 0.364 inch an hour, the clock work moves also a shutter, that cuts off the light of the lamp from two minutes before, till two minutes after every even hour. The upper edge of the inverted image of the slit rises or falls as the mercury falls or rises in the barometer, but the lower edge is not permanently fixed, but rises or falls as the temperature of two zine rods, fixed beside the barometer, falls or rises, and by aid of an adjustable glass lever the amount of displacement of the edge is made exactly equal to the temperature correction, that otherwise would have to be applied to the hourly readings.

22. The paper may be kept on the cylinder for two days, after which it has to be changed, this being invariably effected between 10 a. and 11 a.,-developed, fixed, washed and dried. The photograph is ready to be measured three days after being removed from the cylinder. It is then placed between two glass plates in the tabulator, and the distances between the upper and lower edges of the blackened portion of the paper, which is interrupted by the two-hourly white lines, are read off at every hour or oftener, if required, by aid of a vernier capable of being read to 0.001 inch, two fine wires fixed in empty sight-tubes being made to cover the respective edges.

23. The standards of reference are obtained from 10 a. 1 p. 4 p. and 10 p. readings of the standard barometer, corrected and reduced to 32° Fahrenheit. From the 1st April till the 1st September the 1 a. readings were also made use of, but experience proved this to be superfluous. The nominal inches on the tabulator should be greater than true inches in the same proportion as the magnified image of the slit is greater than the true image, which is about 15. Experience shows, that this has not been strictly attained. The nominal inches are 1.594, whereas they should be 1.534 inches long. But as the pressure here nearly always changes very slowly and regularly within 24 hours, it is not necessary to know this proportion with great accuracy, and it is for the same reason difficult to determine it. The above number was derived from obscrvations made during the Typhoon in September and agrees with other observations.

24. The room in which the barograph and the standard barometer are placed is carefully shut up, so that the daily range of temperature is reduced below half a degree. Three large Kerosine lamps, always burning in the room, raise its temperature in winter a couple of degrees above the temperature of the air outside, while in summer the room is colder than the air. The temperature is observed by reading a carefully verified thermometer immersed in mercury in a test-glass of the same diameter as the barograph barometer. The constancy of the temperature favours the accurate co-operation of the different parts of the apparatus, which are at a uniform temperature, just as a clock goes better in a room, where the temperature does not change much, because the different parts of the pendulum have the same temperature.

25. The barogram readings are entered in a journal kept in the computing room.

The figures are corrected for the scale-error of the tabulator, and when reduced to standard by comparison with the. readings of the standard barometer (corrected and reduced to 32° Fahrenheit), they are entered in the tables printed in the monthly reports.

26. The thermograph was erected in March and worked without interruption since the 1st April. The slab is placed on massive teak-wood blocks, firmly screwed to a slab of granite, which rests on solid masonry.

The bulbs of the recording thermometers (dry and damp bulb) are placed in a zinc screen outside the northern window of the instrument room, which is substantially boarded, and in which are"also placed two thermometers with bulbs,-dry and damp,-of similar dimensions. These have been care- fully verified at different temperatures by comparison with our standard thermometers. The tubes of the recording thermometers are bent and enter the instrument room through two slots (5.6 inches long, 1.2 inches broad and 9.2 inches asunder) bored in the boards. They then rise vertically and are held by pieces of brass, which may be raised or lowered to some extent. The slots are filled with non- conductive, material, so that no air can pass out from the room. An airspeck is introduced into the mercury of each thermometer. These airspecks are photographed on the cylinder. A lamp is placed on each side of the thermograph, whose lights are condensed by lenses and reflected towards the cylinder from mirrors, placed on the slab behind the thermometer tubes. The light penetrating through

abs is narrowed by slits, and the same arrangement is made to obtain the photographic record ot the barograph, but the photograph exhibits in this case two curves, which represent the dry and damp bulb thermometers interrupted by the two-hour lines. The record of the dacol vertically under that of the dry, so that there is only one time-scale. One or two f which to measure are obtained by allowing the light of either lamp to shine through

in either of the frames, in which the slits are cut.

photographic sheets obtained from the thermograph are treated exactly as those obtained ph. When they are dry the distances of the points on the curves from the zero line ad of glass scales graduated to degrees. The temperature in either case corresponding He is obtained daily by comparison with the simultaneous readings of the thermometers which are corrected before being entered in the thermograph journal. The degrees on scales should be larger than the degrees on the thermometers in the proportion, in which magnified by the photographic lens. This has been attained in case of the damp bulb, on the dry bulb scale must be multiplied by 0.980 in order to represent the readings A correction is applied for this before the readings are entered on the tables thly reports.

s

to prevent by any possibility a mistake in the date of the photographic sheets, the al date are written on the back of every sheet, as it is removed from the cylinder.- intment the Crown Agents for the Colonics had ordered the barograph and the thermo- the ameograph through the Meteorological Office. The tabulator, reading scales ently ordered at my suggestion as well as the pluviograph. Unfortunately a large paper had also been supplied by the Secretary to the Meteorological Office, who was not to-bromide paper had for years been successfully adopted in India. Now the necessity sensitising every photographic sheet has caused a deal of trouble during the damp and The sensitised sheets were found not to keep for two days on the barrel. The sheets be changed every day. Even the iodised sheets did not keep for any length of time. lised sheets could be sensitised with any certainty of success, and this added enormously a great part of the time of the second assistant being taken up by this work. Even when caution was taken, the result was not nearly as good as during the winter. Tannin, as led by Chambers, was tried, but made no improvement here. A supply of MORGAN & rgetto-bromide paper has now been ordered, and thus the trouble of iodising and sensitising will be saved.-Another cause of occasional failure rests with the Kerosine lamps, but the rling so much more sensitive, the lamps are not likely to give any trouble, when the new introduced. It may also be found possible to secure Kerosine oil of superior quality. No alty was encountered in keeping the damp bulbs constantly wetted, but occasionally the were found to be dry.

The clocks of the barograph and the thermograph were rated by shortening the pendulums, found inconvenient to shorten them sufficiently. The outstanding error was corrected by

pieces of iron and a few small leaden weights on the flat upper surfaces of the bobs, subsequently kept constant by adding or removing one or more of the small weights. ment proved so satisfactory, that the clocks when accurately started one morning were in test number of cases found as accurate next morning, and the error seldom exceeded and never 45 seconds.

mograph was erected in the course of January and worked without interruption since It is erected on a turret, built of strong teak-wood timber, fastened to the roof of the ssive iron bolts. The turret rises 8 feet above the flat roof of the main building. This instrument registers the number of miles traversed by the wind and also its direction. of a "ROBINSON's anemometer of large size, the cups of which are 45 feet above the ground alove mean sea level. The shaft carrying the cups is supported by friction balls running top of the direction shaft and terminates in an endless screw, which working through gives a cylinder in the turret, round which a thin strip of brass forming a screw is nd another larger cylinder, which is driven by a clockwork, is wrapped the metallic the spaco traversed by the wind is recorded by the screw-shaped pencil, which rests at of the weight of the cylinder round which it is wrapped. The pencil has only one vinder and its pitch is 23 inches long, equal to a scale of 50 miles printed on the paper. ital factor-3 is adopted in our anemometric records. Whenever from further investiga- al reliable factor, dependent on the velocity of the wind shall have been determined for exactly similar construction, it will be easy to alter the figures in cur tables, but the ment is so perfect that no allowance need be made for friction.-In order to obtain. stinct trace of the direction of the wind, the vane consists of two wind mill wheels, their axis at right angles to the wind. With any change they move and carry with them tube, which contains, but is not connected with, the velocity shaft and acting through moves another thin screw-shaped pencil, which registers the direction on another part de paper. The pitch is equal to that of the velocity pencil and equal to a scale of the cardinal

32. The paper must be changed every morning about 10 a.

The direction and velocity are then read off by aid of divided glass scales and immediately entered in the table printed in the monthly reports. The working of the instrument has been satisfactory. It is made extra strong and worked as well in the typhoon as in a gentle breeze.

33. The pluriograph was erected in the course of January and worked without interruption since the 1st March. It is made of cast iron and stands on masonry in the ground about 75 feet_S.W. the nearest part of the main building. The rain collected by the funnel passes through a tube into a copper cup floating in mercury protected from oxidation by glycerine. As the cup is filled it sinks in the inercury and registers the amount of descent by aid of a fine lead pencil on a ruled card fastened on a cylinder revolved by clockwork. When 0.2 inch have been collected, the cup is emptied sponta- neously by a siphon arrangement, 0.1 inch of rain is represented by a length of 0.344 inch on the card. which was found correct. The hour lines are printed 0.365 inch apart, but it was not found practicable to lengthen the pendulum sufficiently for this and new hour times 0.372 inch apart have to be drawn on the cards. Care was taken by the maker to arrange, that the siphon should empty the cup as quickly as possible, and it was only during unusually heavy squalls, when the rain poured down in torrents, that it failed somewhat in its action, the amount entering the cup while it was emptying itself being lost. It was feared that the heavy rain might mechanically push down the cup, but this has scarcely been noticed in practice. For further security an ordinary rain-gauge, the rain collected in which is measured at 10a., is kept beside the pluviograph, and it has occasionally been found advisable to correct the pluviograms by the readings of that gauge.

34. Early in the suminer the place had not yet been turfed and the dust of decomposed granite raised by the wind was most destructive to the acting parts of the instruments and particularly so to the action of the rain-gauge.. When the Governor last summer honoured the Observatory with his presence, His Excellency remarked this disadvantage, and the place was soon after turfed, since which time the rain-gauge has acted smoothly.

35. The pluviograms are read off by aid of a simple scale and immediately entered in the tables printed in the monthly reports.

36. The sunshine-recorder is placed in a groove in the coping stone on the parapet 34 feet above the ground. In construction and adjustment it is similar to an ordinary sun-dial, but the style throwing the shadow is replaced by a solid glass ball, which acts as a burning glass, and the hour circle consists of a blue card, on which the hours are printed, and which is changed every evening. Whenever the sun shines brightly, it burns a hole in the paper, and by comparing the burned trace with the half-hour lines it is easy to estimate, how many minutes the sun was shining every hour. The figures are immediately entered in the table printed in the monthly reports. Care is taken to keep the glass ball clean.

37. The barograph, the thermograph and the anemograph were made by Mr. MUNRO of King's Cross, London, and are as excellent specimens of workmanship as might be expected from this well- known maker. The principal part of Mr. FIGG's time has been occupied in attending to the selfrecord- ing instruments and tabulating the records, a task in which he has exhibited much patience and perseverance as well as that conscientious care, for which he was recommended to me by Mr. WHIPPLE, Superintendent of the Kew Observatory, and to which the great accuracy of our results is to a great

extent due.

38. As stated in the "Instructions for making meteorological observations &c." meteorological instruments forwarded by observers, who regularly send their registers to the Observatory, are verified here free of cost. During the past year the following number of instruments has been verified and certificates issued:

Barometers: 13

Thermometers: 126

Anemometers: 1

39. The monthly weather reports up to July inclusive have been published. The tables are ready for the August and September reports. The typhoons in August are being investigated. The principal tables for the October and Noveinber reports are ready and some progress has been made in tabulating the records for December. I expect to be able to publish these reports in the course of next spring.

40. Some progress has also been made with the annual weather report for 1884 and with the five-day means of the principal meteorological elements. The volume of "Observations and Researches made in 1884" will be published as soon as these reports are ready.

41. The China Coast Meteorological Register was issued daily from here. Through the courtesy of the Great Northern and of the Eastern Extension Australasia and China Telegraph Companies I received daily telegrams from Wladiwostock, Nagasaki, Shanghai and Amoy, and from Manila respect- ively. Subsequently the Superintendent of the latter Company was kind enough to supply telegrams

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT. GAZETTE OF 17TH JAN., 1885. 61

Forhow and Haiphong in addition, but an even more important addition was made, when he n arranged to have meteorological observations started at the telegraph station in Bolinao The telegraphic reports embrace generally readings of the barometer and the attached ter, dry and damp bulb thermometers, direction and force of the wind, state of the weather

unt of rain.

2. The Great Northern Telegraph Company receives the telegrams for 10 a. and 4 p. (previous the forenoon. The E. E. A. & C. Telegraph Company receives the 10 a. and 4 p. observa- rately. The Superintendent of the Station in Bolinao in the course of October commenced observations also at other hours, whenever he apprehended atmospheric disturbance in the rhood of Luzon. He then also observed the direction, whence the clouds were coming. The e of similar telegraphic information from a gentleman of scientific training during the coming season cannot be overestimated.

D. As soon as possible after 10 a. and 4 p. observations made here similar to those received are to the two Companies.-The telegrams are exchanged between the Telegraph Offices in the Observatory by means of either of our two chair-coolics. Of course it would be better the information through telegraph. There is a cable across the harbour through which Stations are connected, but it has not been used for transmission of such messages. If it le to place the Observatory in direct communication with the Telegraph Companies Offices, mation would be supplied much sooner than is possible under existing circumstances.

t. As soon as the telegrams are received they are revised, corrected and reduced and the most nt features and changes of the weather are pointed out, as well as the wind over the open sea Shanghai, Hongkong and Luzon indicated by the gradients, the constants being statistically ned. Early information about typhoons is also issued, the existence of which is generally from observations here taken in connection with the general distribution of pressure &c., it is indicated by observations contained in the telegraphic reports from any individual station, may be situated nearer to the respective disturbance.

45. Every day the general whereabout of the centre and its progress since previous day are ed, and when, as frequently occurs during the progress of typhoons, the telegrains are not d, the information is based exclusively upon observations made here. In this part of my work I derived great help from Ferrel's theoretical papers and particularly from Meldrum's illustrious

researches.

16. The Clerk of the Department has charge of the calculations connected with the register and as copies of same are ready-generally about 1 h. 30 p.-they are forwarded by one of the clair-coolies to the following addresses :--

H. E. the Admiral of the Fleet.

The Harbour Office.

The Great Northern Telegraph Company.

The Hongkong Telegraph.

The China Mail.

The Daily Press.

7. Occasionally complaints have been received, that the register was not received at a sufficiently

iar.

4. A meteorological register containing the 4 p. observations made here, is sent in the evening

Day Press, which is a morning paper.

Whenever, as does not often occur, bad weather prevents the launch from running between and Kaulung, or when information concerning typhoons, which should be published imme- is at hand, a telegram is sent through the Police Stations to the Central Police Station in

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 17TH JAN., 1885.

50. It was in the course of the year arranged, that I am not to control the distribution of these telegrams, for which my responsibility ceases, as soon as they have been properly forwarded from the Observatory.

51. In fact now that meteorological signals can be exhibited from this side of the harbour, the distribution among so many addresses is perhaps unnecessary, and with reference to the Telegraph Companies I have formed the opinion, that telegrams concerning typhoons should be forwarded only to those Treaty Ports, to the ships in which their contents would be of importance in cach individual

case.

52. In the latter part of August a mast for hoisting police and storm-signals erected at Tsim- sha-tsui was furnished with the system of signals explained in my notice of the 11th August (Appendix F), and a gun was placed at the foot of the mast for giving warnings to the Colony.

53. The signals, although they were rather light,-being made of perforated canvas framed in leaden pipes,--blew down and were damaged, because the cord, that supported them, was far too weak. At the time the water-police had not yet taken possession of the new barracks and there were only a couple of English constables living in the old station, but it would be impossible to refer in too high terms to the conduct of the police, who are charged with hoisting the signals, both under those difficult circumstances and also afterwards.

54. A new set of signals made of rattan have since been made at the suggestion of the Surveyor General, but they are only 4, while the original signals were 6 feet in diameter. Whether they will be sufficient, remains to be seen. At any rate it is to be hoped, that arrangements will be made to have them hoisted to the top of the mast, which was reserved for these signals.

55. The notice referred to was extensively circulated and it was clearly stated, that the signals are hoisted solely with the object of informing masters of vessels leaving the port concerning the where- about of the centre of typhoons, and that local storm-signals would be given by firing the gun,-so that it is surprising, that a portion of the public should be under the impression, that the signals indi- cate strong wind in the Colony, but no doubt more correct notions will get abroad next season.

56. Through these signals supplemented by the information given in the daily registers, masters of vessels are enabled to form an opinion of the winds and weather,-fine in some places foul in others, ---likely to be encountered on the voyage, and to select the best time for starting all according to their destination. But after all I have learned, that cases still occur, where a captain, who is less familiar with typhoons, delays his ship in port, although the information issued to a practical meteorologist implies, that he is likely to encounter fine weather on a voyage to the port, for which he is about to start,-while another ship starting at the same time for some other port may run great risk.

57. To a port frequented by so vast a shipping as Hongkong it would be an advantage to have trustworthy information concerning bad weather likely to be encountered by each individual ship leaving the port placed within reach of every captain about to leave the port, and this can only be effected by allowing them to telegraph to ine for information, adding the name and destination of the ship in question. Similar enquiries may in England, on payment of one shilling for the message be addressed to the meteorological office, but the answer contains only a guess at the weather expected next day, while in the China Sea it would be possible to give information concerning the weather likely to prevail on the voyage.

58. But in order to effect this it would be necessary to appoint a telegraph clerk in the Observatory. Occasionally during the past season masters of vessels have sent one of their mates over to make enquiries, and I have done my best to give them the required information, but at serious inconvenience owing to the smallness of the staff attached to this Department.

59. I devoted part of my time in the autumn of 1883 in studying past records of the weather kept by officers of the Harbour Department and Mr. FIGG assisted me in taking monthly means of observations. The results were published in the Gazette (Appendices A-C to "Observations and Researches in 1884"). He also took monthly means of the height of the barometer registered for over twenty years in the Harbour Office, but as some difficulty was encountered in ascertaining the corrections, which the barometers required, the results have not yet been published and will not be of much importance when published.

60. Beside the reports to appear in the "Observations and Researches in 1884," which will include a complete barometric determination of the height of Victoria Peak, I have published the following papers:

a. "On the Rainfall and Temperature of Markree, Sligo." (In "Quarterly Journal of the

Royal Meteorological Society" April, 1884).

b. Markree Observatory." (In

that I am not able to add a catalogue of the scientific instruments and books to this I also regret having been at times behind-hand in acknowledging the receipt of publi- other scientific centres and from individuals and having been forced by want of time to ntific correspondence in general, but although during the first portion of the new year instruments will have to be started, I expect to be able to attend more regularly to my ds respect.

Officers of the Royal Navy and Officers of the French squadron in China as well as numerous erchant vessels have forwarded to me meteorological observations made during typhoons, I have been enabled to investigate those atmospheric disturbances, from which investi- its useful to the navigation of the China Sea will follow.

In the year under review there were more cases of offences against the person then in 1883 but fewer offences against property.

In 1884 there was one case of murder in which the two accused were acquitted, and one case of manslaughter which also ended in the acquittal of the prisoner.

Of other offences against the person there were in 1884 five cases of shooting or wounding with intent to murder, and three cases of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

In 1883 there was one case of murder, one of manslaughter, no case of attempt to murder, and

three only of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 31ST JANUARY, 1885.

There were no cases of Arson, Kidnapping, Stealing or selling children, or of purchasing or aining women for the purpose of prostitution. One case of bringing a female into the Colony for the purpose of prostitution resulted in the acquittal of the two accused.

of the various forms of Larceny there were twenty-four cases in 1884, compared with fifty-two

1883.

Or Robbery with violence there were seven cases in 1884 and only one in 1883. The other cases call for no special mention.

The following Table of Lunar Transits across the Meridian of Hongkong, furnished by the Government Astronomer, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 31st January, 1885.

W. H. MARSH.

Colonial Secretary..

LUNAR TRANSITS ACROSS THE MERIDIAN OF HONGKONG.

The following transits of the moon were observed by eye and ear with TROUGHTON & SIMMS'S three inch transit instrument and the sidereal standard clock. The clock-correction was determined by aid of the Nautical Almanac apparent places of stars, and the right ascensions of the moon here exhibited are therefore subject to the corrections, which are applied to that catalogue. The first column shews the day of the month in Hongkong, the second the mean time, the third the limb of the moon, that was observed, the fourth the position of the instrument,-clamp east or west,-the fifth the mean of the seven wires, the sixth the reduction to the meridian, the seventh the clock-correction, the eighth the resulting right ascension, the ninth the seconds of right ascension in Nautical Almanac (to which Newcomb's corrections are now applied), the tenth the apparent error of Nautical Almanac in right ascension. From data exhibited in this column it appears that the semi-diameter in Hansen's lunar tables must be diminished by 0. 127=1′′.905 in order to represent these observations. This correction was applied to the Nautical Almanac and the eleventh column exhibits then the error of the Nautical Almanac, the mean of which was + 0.091 + 1.365. The longitude of the Observatory is

7h. 36. 41.86 East.

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 Colonial Treasurer seconded.

Question-put and passed.

ASSENT TO ORDINANCES.-The Acting Clerk of Councils announced His Excellency the Governor's assent to the following Ordinances :-

Ordinance No. 1 of 1885.-An Ordinance to apply a sura not exceeding Nine hundred and Forty-nine thousand, and Sixty-one Dollars to the Public Service of the Year 1885.

Ordinance No. 2 of 1885.—An Ordinance to amend The Stamp Ordinance, 1884.

QUESTION.-The Honourable T. JACKSON, pursuant to notice, asked if it is true that the funds of this Colony are at present being spent upon the construction of a fort in the Lilimun Pass, covering the proposed minefield, upon which it is intended to mount old 40-pounder guns, which have been obsolete for nearly twenty years, and which would prove utterly useless against modern ordnance.

His Excellency the Governor replied as follows:

"With reference to the question of the Honourable Gentleman, I desire, in the first place, to take this opportunity of informing the Council that, on the 2nd instant, I forwarded by telegraph to the Secretary of State for the Colonies, the vote passed unanimously, on the 31st ultimo, viz.:-

"This Council now vote unanimously the sum of fifty-five thousand six hundred and twenty-five pounds sterling (£55,625), required as the contribution of this Colony to the effective defence 'of Hongkong; it being understood that the armament to be provided by the Imperial Government will be of the best and latest pattern of breech-loading ordnance, capable of resisting attacks by the heaviest modern ironclads.' To this I have received the follow- ing reply:

(

Referring to your telegram of the 2nd January, new guns are being provided at the cost of more than eighty thousand pounds sterling (£80,000).' It will be remembered that this is more than double the cost (viz. £37,500) of the guns originally proposed for the new Forts at Hongkong.

6

ques-

"With regard to the terms of the Honourable Gentleman's tion, I am unable to say, if 'the Funds of the Colony are at present being spent upon the construction of a Fort in the Litmun Pass.' I have ascertained that the military works here are being carried out under the immediate direction of the War Office in England, and that it is not known as yet whether the cost of the battery at the Liümun Pass, which will not exceed one thousand pounds sterling, (£1,000), will be set down to Imperial Funds, or to the Colonial con- tribution. Of course, if it is so desired, I will forward the question of

my Honourable Friend to the Secretary of State.

"With respect to the other points of the Honourable Gentleman's question, I am informed that heavy ordnance will probably be mount- ed at the Limun Pass so soon as it can be procured; but that the primary object of the new work there is to protect the Submarine minefield against the attack of armed boats and steam-launches; and that for this purpose lighter and rapidly firing guns are indispensable; such as breech-loading 40-pounder guns, which the Military author- ities declare are not obsolete, or ineffective."

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperiai 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 Dialcet, 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.

PART II.

BILLS OF EXCHANGE.

Form and Interpretation.

3. (1.)

(2.) An instrument which does not comply with these conditions, or which orders any act to be done in addition to the payment of money, is not a bill of exchange.

(3.) An order to pay out of a particular fund is not unconditional within the meaning of this section;

but an unqualified order to pay, coupled with (a) an indication of a particular fund out of which the drawee is to re-imburse himself or a particular account to be debited with the amount, or (b) a statement of the transaction which gives rise to the bill, is. unconditional.

(4.) A bill is not invalid by reason-—

(a.) That it is not dated;

(b.) That it does not specify the value given, or that any value has been given therefor;

(c.) That it does not specify the place where it is

drawn or the place where it is payable.

4. (1.) An inland bill is a bill which is or on the face of it purports to be (a) both drawn and payable within this Colony, or (b) drawn within this Colony, upon some person resident therein. Any other bill is a foreign bill.

(2.) Unless the contrary appear on the face of the bill the holder may treat it as an inland bill.

+

138

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 14TH FEBRUARY, 1885.

:

5. (1.) A bill may be drawn payable to, or to the order of, the drawer; or it may be drawn payable to, or to the order of, the drawee.

(2.) Where in a bill drawer and drawee are the same person, or where the drawce is a fictitious person or a person not having capacity to contract, the holder may treat the instrument, at his option, either as a bill of exchange or as a promissory note.

6. (1.) The drawee must be named or otherwise indi- cated in a bill with reasonable certainty.

(2.) A bill may be addressed to two or more drawees whether they are partners or not, but an order addressed to two drawees in the alternative or to two or more draweos in succession is not a bill of exchange.

7. (1.) Where a bill is not payable to bearer, the payee must be named or otherwise indicated therein with reason- able certainty.

(2.) A bill may be made payable to two or more payees jointly, or it may be made payable in the alternative to one of two, or one or some of several payees. A bill may also be made payable to the holder of an office for the time being. (3.) Where the payee is a fictitious or non-existing person the bill may be treated as payable to bearer.

8. (1.) When a bill contains words prohibiting transfer, or indicating an intention that it should not be transferable, it is valid as between the parties thereto, but is not nego- tiable.

(2.) A negotiable bill may be payable either to order

or to bearer.

(3.) A bill is payable to bearer which is expressed to be so payable, or on which the only or last indorsement is an indorsement in blank.

(4.) A bill is payable to order which is expressed to be so payable, or which is expressed to be payable to a parti- cular person, and does not contain words prohibiting transfer or indicating an intention that it should not be transferable. (5.) Where a bill, either originally or by indorsement, is expressed to be payable to the order of a specified person, and not to him or his order, it is nevertheless payable to him or his order at his option.

sum certain

9. (1.) The sum payable by a bill is a within the meaning of this Ordinance, although it is required to be paid

(a.) With interest.

(b.) By stated instalments.

(e.) By stated instalments, with a provision that upon default in payment of any instalment the

whole shall become due.

(d.) According to an indicated rate of exchange or according to a rate of exchange to be ascer- tained as directed by the bill.

(2.) Where the sun payable is expressed in words and also in figures, and there is a discrepancy between the two, the sum denoted by the words is the amount payable.

(3.) Where a bill is expressed to be payable with interest, unless the instrument otherwise provides, interest runs from the date of the bill, and if the bill is undated from the issue thereof,

10. (1.) A bill is payable on demand-

(a.) Which is expressed to be payable on demand, or

at sight, or on presentation; or

(b.) In which no time for payment is expressed. (2.) Where a bill is accepted or indorsed when it is overdue, it shall, as regards the acceptor who so accepts, or any indorser who so indorses it, be deemed a bill payable on demand.

11. A bill is payable at a determinable future time within the meaning of this Ordinance which is expressed to be payable-

(1.) At a fixed period after date or sight.

(2.) On or at a fixed period after the occurrence of a specified event which is certain to happen, though the time of happening may be uncer-

tain.

An instrument expressed to be payable on a contingency

is not a bill, and the happening of the event does not cure the defect.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 14TH FEBRUARY, 1885.

12. Where a bill expressed to be payable at a fixed period after date is issued undated, or where the acceptance of a bill payable at a fixed period after sight is undated, any holder may insert therein the true date of issue or acceptance, and the bill shall be payable accordingly,

Provided that (1) where the holder in good faith and by mistake inserts a wrong date, and (2) in every case where a wrong date is inserted, if the bill subsequently comes into the hands of a holder in due course the bill shall not be avoided thereby, but shall operate and be payable as if the date so inserted had been the true date.

13. (1.) Where a bill or an acceptance or any indorse- ment on a bill is dated, the date shall, unless the contrary be proved, be deemed to be the true date of the drawing, acceptance, or indorsement, as the case may be.

(2.) A bill is not invalid by reason only that it is ante- dated or post-dated, or that it bears date on a Sunday.

14. Where a bill is not payable on demand the day on which it falls due is determined as follows:

(1.) Three days, called days of grace, arc, in every case where the bill itself does not otherwise provide, added to the time of payment as fixed by the bill, and the bill is due and payable on the last day of grace: Provided that-

(a.) When the last day of grace falls on Sunday, Christmas Day, Good Friday, or a day ap- pointed by proclamation in the Gazette as a public fast or thanksgiving day, the bill is, ex- cept in the case herein-after provided for, due and payable on the preceding business day; (b.) When the last day of grace is a bank holiday (other than Christmas Day or Good Friday) or when the last day of grace is a Sunday and the second day of grace is a Bank Holiday, the bill is due and payable on the succeeding business day.

(2.) Where a bill is payable at å fixed period after date, after sight, or after the happening of a specified event, the time of payment is determined by excluding the day from which the time is to begin to run and by including the day of payment.

(3.) Where a bill is payable at a fixed period after sight, the time begins to run from the date of the acceptance if the bill be accepted, and from the date of noting or protest if the bill be noted or protested for non-acceptance, or for non-delivery.

""

. (4.) The term "month in a bill means calendar month. 15. The drawer of a bill and any indorser may insert therein the name of a person to whom the holder may resort in case of need, that is to say, in case the bill is dishonoured by non-acceptance or non-payment. Such person is called the referee in case of need. It is in the option of the holder to resort to the referee in case of need or not as he may think fit.

16. The drawer of a bill, and any indorser, may insert therein an express stipulation-

(1.) Negativing or limiting his own liability to the holder: (2.) Waiving as regards himself some or all of the holder's duties.

17. (1.) The acceptance of a bill is the signification by the drawee of his assent to the order of the drawer.

(2.) An acceptance is invalid unless it complies with the following conditions, namely:

(a.) It must be written on the bill and be signed by the drawee. The mere signature of the drawee without additional words is sufficient. (b.) It must not express that the drawee will perform his promise by any other means than the payment of money.

18. A bill may be accepted.

(1.) Before it has been signed by the drawer, or while otherwise incomplete:

(2.) When it is overdue, or after it has been dishonoured by a previous refusal to accept, or by non-payment:

(3.) When a bill payable after sight is dishonoured by non-acceptance, and the drawee subsequently accepts it, the holder, in the absence of any different agreement, is entitled to have the bill accepted as of the date of first presentment to the drawee for acceptance.

139

140

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 14TH FEBRUARY, 1885.

19. (1.) An acceptance is either (a) general or (b) qualified.

(2.) A general acceptance assents without qualification to the order of the drawer. A qualified acceptance in express terms varies the effect of the bill as drawn.

In particular an acceptance is qualified which is-

(a.) Conditional, that is to say, which makes payment by the acceptor dependent on the fulfilment. of a condition therein stated:

(b.) Partial, that is to say, an acceptance to pay part only of the amount for which the bill is drawn: (c.) Local, that is to say, an acceptance to pay only at

a particular specified place:

An acceptance to pay at a particular place is à general acceptance, unless it expressly states that the bill is to be paid there only and not elsewhere:

(d.) Qualified as to time:

(e.) The acceptance of some one or more of the drawees,

but not of all.

20. (1.) Where a simple signature on a blank stamped paper is delivered by the signer in order that it may be converted into a bill, it operates as a primâ facie authority to fill it up as a complete bill for any amount the stamp will cover, using the signature for that of the drawer, or the acceptor, or an indorser; and, in like manner, when a bill is wanting in any material particular, the person in possession of it has a primâ facie authority to fill up the omission in any way he thinks fit.

(2.) In order that any such instrument when completed inay be enforceable against any person who became a party thereto prior to its completion, it must be filled up within a reasonable time, and strictly in accordance with the authority given. Reasonable time for this purpose is a question of fact.

Provided that if any such instrument after completion is negotiated to a holder in due course it shall be valid and effectual for all purposes in his hands, and he may enforce it as if it had been filled up within a reasonable time and strictly in accordance with the authority given.

21. (1.) Every contract on a bill, whether it be the drawer's, the acceptor's, or an indorser's, is incomplete and revocable, until delivery of the instrument in order to give effect thereto.

Provided that where an acceptance is written on a' bill, and the drawce gives notice to or according to the directions of the person entitled to the bill that he has accepted it, the acceptance then becomes complete and irrevocable.

(2.) As between immediate parties, and as regards a remote party other than a holder in due course, the deli-

very→→→

(a.) In order to be effectual must be made either by or under the authority of the party drawing, accepting, or indorsing, as the case may be: (b.) May be shown to have been conditional or for a special purpose only, and not for the purpose of transferring the property in the bill.

But if the bill be in the hands of a holder in due course a valid delivery of the bill by all parties prior to him so as to make them liable to him is conclusively presumed.

(3.) Where a bill is no longer in the possession of a party who has signed it as drawer, acceptor, or indorser, a valid and unconditional delivery by him is presumed until the contrary is proved.

Capacity and Authority of Partics.

22. (1.) Capacity to incur liability as a party to a bill is co-extensive with capacity to contract.

Provided that nothing in this section shall enable a corpo- ration to make itself liable as drawer, acceptor, or indorser of a bill unless it is competent to it so to do under the law for the time being in force relating to corporations.

(2.) Where a bill is drawn or indorsed by an infant, minor, or corporation having no capacity or power to incur liability on a bill, the drawing or indorsement entitles the holder to receive payment of the bill, and to enforce it against any other party thereto.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 14TH FEBRUARY, 1885.

23. No person is liable as drawer, indorser, or acceptor of a bill who has not signed it as such: Provided that

(1.) Where a person sigus a bill in a trade or assumed name, he is liable thereon as if he had signed it in his own

name:

(2.) The signature of the name of a firm is equivalent to the signature by the person so signing of the names of all per sous liable as partners in that firm.

24. Subject to the provisions of this Ordinance, where a signature on a bill is forged or placed thercon without the authority of the person whose signature it purports to be, the forged or unauthorised signature is wholly inoperative, and no right to retain the bill or to give a discharge therefor or to enforce payment thereof against any party thereto can be acquired through or under that signature, unless the party against whom it is sought to retain or enforce payment of the bill is precluded from setting up the forgery or want of authority.

Provided that nothing in this section shall affect the ratification of an unauthorised signature not amounting to a forgery.

25. A signature by procuration operates as notice that the agent has but a limited authority to sign, and the prin- cipal is only bound by such signature if the agent in so signing was acting within the actual limits of his authority.

26. (1.) Where a person sigus a bill as drawer, indorser, or acceptor, and adds words to his signature, indicating that be signs for or on behalf of a principal, or in a representative character, he is not personally liable thereon; but the mere addition to his signature of words describing him as an agent, or as filling a representative character, does not exempt him from personal liability,

(2.) In determining whether a signature on a bill is that of the principal or that of the agent by whose hand it is written, the construction most favourable to the validity of the instrument shall be adopted.

The Consideration for a Bill.

27. (1.) Valuable consideration for a bill may be consti- tuted by,-

(a.) Any consideration sufficient to support a simple

contract;

(b.) An antecedent debt or liability. Such a debt or liability is deemed valuable consideration whether the bill is payable on demand or at a future time.

(2.) Where value has at any time been given for a bill the holder is deemed to be a holder for value as regards the acceptor and all parties to the bill who became parties prior

to such time.

(3.) Where the holder of a bill has a lien on it, arising either from contract or by implication of law, he is deemed to be a holder for value to the extent of the sum for which he has a lien.

28.'(1.) An accommodation party to a bill is a person who has signed a bill as drawer, acceptor, or indorser, without receiving value therefor, and for the purpose of lending his name to some other person.

(2.) An accommodation party is liable on the bill to a holder for value; and it is immaterial whether, when such holder took the bill, he knew such party to be an accommo- dation party or not.

29. (1.) A holder in due course is a holder who has taken a bill, complete and regular on the face of it, under the following conditions; namely,

(a.) That he became the holder of it before it was overdue, and without notice that it had been previously dishonoured, if such was the fact: (b.) That he took the bill in good faith and for value, and that at the time the bill was negotiated to him he had no notice of any defect in the title of the person who negotiated it.

(2.) In particular the title of a person who negotiates a bill is defective within the meaning of this Ordinance when he obtained the bill, or the acceptance thereof, by fraud, duress, or force and fear, or other unlawful means, or for an illegal consideration, or when he negotiates it in breath of faith, er under such circumstances as amount to a fraud.

141

142

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 14TH FEBRUARY, 1885.

(3.) A holder (whether for value or not), who derives his title to a bill through a holder in due course, and who is not himself à party to any fraud or illegality affecting it, has all the rights of that holder in due course as regards the acceptor and all parties to the bill prior to that holder.

30. (1.) Every party whose signature appears on a bill is primâ facie deemed to have become a party thereto for value.

(2.) Every holder of a bill is primâ facie deemed to be a holder in due course; but if in an action on a bill it is admitted or proved that the acceptance, issue, or subse- quent negotiation of the bill is affected with frand, duress, or force and fear, or illegality, the burden of proof is shifted, unless and until the holder proves that, subsequent to the alleged fraud or illegality, value has in good faith been given for the bill.

Negotiation of Bills.

31. (1.) A bill is negotiated when it is transferred from one person to another in such a manner as to constitute the transferce the holder of the bill.

(2.) A bill payable to bearer is negotiated by delivery. (3.) A bill payable to order is negotiated dy the indorse- ment of the holder completed by delivery.

(4.) Where the holder of a bill payable to his order transfers it for value without indorsing it, the transfer gives the transferee such title as the transferor had in the bill, and the transferee in addition acquires the right to have the indorsement of the transferor.

(5.) Where any person is under obligation to indorse a bill in a representative capacity, he may indorse the bill in such terms as to negative personal liability.

32. An indorsement in order to operate as a negotiation must comply with the following conditions, namely:-

(1.) It must be written on the bill itself and be signed by the indorser. The simple signature of the indorser on the bill, without additional words, is sufficient.

"

An indorsement written on an allonge, or on a copy of a bill issued or negotiated in a country where “ copies " are recognised, is deemed to be written on the bill itself.

(2.) It must be an indorsement of the entire bill. A partial indorsement, that is to say, an indorsement which purports to transfer to the indorsee a part only of the amount payable, or which purports to transfer the bill to two or more indorsees severally, does not operate as a negotiation of the bill.

(3.) Where a bill is payable to the order of two or more payces or indorsees who are not partners all must indorse, uuless the one indorsing has authority to indorse for the others.

(4.) Where, in a bill payable to order, the payce or in- dorsee is wrongly designated, or his name is mis-spelt, he may indorse the bill as therein described, adding, if he think fit, his proper signature.

(5.) Where there are two or more indorsements on a bill, cach indorsement is deemed to have been made in the order in which it appears on the bill, until the contrary is proved. (6.) An indorsement may be made in blank or special, may also contain terms making it restrictive.

It

33. Where a bill purports to be indorsed conditionally the condition may be disregarded by the payer, and payment to the indorsce is valid whether the condition has been fulfilled or not.

34. (1.) An indorsement in blank specifies no indorsee, and a bill so indorsed becomes payable to bearer.

(2.). A special indorsement specifies the person to whom, or to whose order, the bill is to be payable.

(3.) The provisions of this Ordinance relating to a payco apply with the necessary modifications to an indorsee under a special indorsement.

(4.) When a bill has been indorsed in blank, any holder may convert the blink indorsement into a special indorse- ment by writing above the indorser's signature a direction to pay the bill to or to the order of himself or some other person.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 14тu FEBRUARY, 1885.

35. (1.) An indorsement is restrictive which prohibits the further negotiation of the bill or which expresses that it is a mere authority to deal with the bill as thereby directed and not a transfer of the ownership thereof, as, for example, if a bill be indorsed "Pay D. only," or "Pay D. for the account of X.," or "Pay D. or order for collection."

(2.) A restrictive indorsement gives the indorsee the right to receive payment of the bill and to sue any party thereto that his indorser could have sued, but gives him no power to transfer his rights as indorsee unless it expressly authorise him to do so.

(3.) Where a restrictive indorsement authorises further transfer, all subsequent indorsees take the bill with the same rights and subject to the same liabilities as the first indorsee under the restrictive indorsement.

36. (1.) Where a bill is negotiable in its origin it con- tinues to be negotiable until it has been (a) restrictively indorsed or (b) discharged by payment or otherwise.

(2.) Where an overdue bill is negotiated, it can only be negotiated subject to any defect of title affecting it at its maturity, and thenceforward no person who takes it can acquire or give a better title than that which the person from whom he took it had.

(3.) A bill payable on demand is deemed to be overdue within the meaning and for the purposes, of this section, when it appears on the face of it to have been in circulation

What is an unreason-. for an unreasonable length of time. able length of time for this purpose is a question of fact.

(4.) Except where an indorsement bears date after the maturity of the bill, every negotiation is primâ facie deemed to have been effected before the bill was overdue.

(5.) Where a bill which is not overdue has been disho- noured any person who takes it with notice of the dishonour takes it subject to any defect of title attaching thereto at the time of dishonour, but nothing in this sub-section shall affect the rights of a holder in due course.

37. Where a bill is negotiated back to the drawer, or to a prior indorser or to the acceptor, such party may, subject to the provisions of this Ordinance, re-issue and further negotiate the bill, but he is not entitled to enforce payment of the bill against any intervening party to whom he was previously liable.

38. The rights and powers of the holder of a bill are as follows:

(1.) He may sue on the bill in his own name :'

(2.) Where he is a holder in due course, he holds the bill free from any defect of title of prior parties, as well as from mere personal defences available to prior parties among themselves, and may enforce payment against all parties liable on the bill:

(3.) Where his title is defective (a) if he negotiates the bill to a holder in due course, that holder obtains a good and complete title to the bill, and (b) if he obtains payment of the bill the person who pays him in due course gets a valid discharge for the bill.

General duties of the Holder.

39. (1.) Where a bill is payable after sight, presentment for acceptance is necessary in order to fix the maturity of

the instrument.

(2.) Where a bill expressly stipulates that it shall be presented for acceptance, or where a bill is drawn payable elsewhere than at the residence or place of business of the drawee it must be presented for acceptance before it can be presented for payment.

(3.) In no other case is presentment for acceptance ne- cessary in order to render liable any party to the bill.

(4.) Where the holder of a bill, drawn payable elsewhere than at the place of business or residence of the drawco, has not time, with the exercise of reasonable diligence, to pre- sent the bill for acceptance before presenting it for payment on the day that it falls due, the delay caused by presenting the bill for acceptance before presenting it for payment is excused, and does not discharge the drawer and indorsers.

(c.) Where although the presentment has been irregular, acceptance has been refused on some other ground.

(3.) The fact that the holder has reason to believe that the bill, on presentment, will be dishonoured does not ex- cuse presentment.

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 hound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

From this sum, the Directors recommend the payment of a Dividend of Two Pounds Sterling per Share, which will absorb $533,333.33.

The difference in Exchange between 4/6, the rate, at which the Dividend is declared and 3/6 the current rate of the day amounts to $144,313.72.

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.

3rd November 1883 consequently the first year of the concession has nearly expired On the 29th July last a Company was duly formed and registere! for the purpose of acquiring and taking over with the assent and approval of the Governor in Council from the four Promoters named in the Ordinance the right to construct and maintain all or any of the Tramways numbered 1 2 3 4 and 5 in the Ordinance and all the privileges thereby conterred in so far as the Company might desire to excercise the same in respect of the said Tramways numbered 1 2 3 4 and 5 (but saving and excepting unto the said four Promoters the said privileges in so far as they might desire to exercise the same in respect of the Tramway Numbered Six in the said Ordinance) without paying any valuable consi- deration therefor and upon such terms and conditions as the said four Promoters should think fit The Capital of the Company was $500,000 divided into 10,000 Shares of $50 each The Company was duly advertised and subscriptions for shares invited up to the end of the month of September last The amount of subscriptions however did not come up to the Company's expectations and was not sufficient to float the Company successfully The causes of this are not far to seek. They arise no doubt from the present state of affairs between France and China and the deplorable depression of trade which is now existing In fact there could probably be no worse time than the present for floating the undertaking Under these circumstances we are requested to apply on behalf of the Company for the ⚫ consent of the Governor in Council to the extension for the period of 12 Calendar Months of the time allowed by the Ordinance for the substantial commencement of the construction of all the Tramways authorised by the Ordinance We have the honour to be Sir Your obedient Servants-BRERETON WOTTON & DEACON The Honourable FREDERICK STEWART LL.D., Acting Colonial Secretary''

The following finding of a Marine Court appointed to enquire into the loss of the British Steam- ship Castello, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 7th March, 1885.

FINDING.

W. H. MARSI,

Colonial Secretary.

We find that the British Steam-ship Castello, Official No. 77,042 of London, was stranded on Flat Island in the Tathong Channel near Hongkong, at about 11.30 P.M., of the 16th February, 1885.

We are unable to find any reasonable cause for the stranding of this vessel. There are two lights in this Channel both of which were distinctly seen. The Master states in his defence, that an un- usually strong current set the vessel out of her course; but Cape Collinson light, if properly steered for would have prevented any such accident as that under investigation.

We are of opinion that the Master JOIN EDWIN CHANDLER is to blame for the stranding of the Castello, and we direct that his Certificate of Competency No. 94,261 be suspended for a period of six

months from this date.

We think that after the stranding of the ship the Master did all he could for the safety of crew, ship and cargo, and we recommend that he be furnished with a First Mate's Certificate.

Dated at Hongkong, this 2nd day of March, 1885.

POLICE OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 22nd January, 1885.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward for the information of His Excellency the Governor, details the Police Establishment, the list of Pensioners, and the Criminal Statistics for 1884.

2. The Criminal Statistics show that 10,203 cases were reported to the Police during 1884, being an increase of 2,515 cases or 32.71 per cent. on the returns of 1883. In the sub-division of these ses into Serious Crimes (so-called), and Minor Offences, an increase of 229 cases or 9.45 per cent. is found in Serious Crimes, and an increase of 2,286 cases or 43.41 per cent. in Minor Offences.

3. This increase of 2,515 cases is mainly accounted for by 1,761 additional arrests for breach of the Pass Ordinance, 378 additional cases of Assault, Disorderly Conduct, and 263 additional arrests for Nuisance.

4. I have much pleasure in reporting that, judging from the records, the conduct of the Force, specially of the European element, appears to have been most satisfactory during the past year.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

The Honourable W. H. MARSH, C.M.G.,

The height of Victoria Peak has been calculated (from the monthly means of observations made

2h'

H

during 1884) by aid of Ferrel's tables derived from the formula:- b'

H=60521.5 (log. B′-log B) (1+.001017 [t'+t-64°]) (1+.189) (1+.189) (1 + 2 ) ( 1 +

-) (1 − ) (1+.002606 cos. 2a).

T

I

H represents the difference of height betweca the upper and lower stations-here, the Peak and the Observatory; B the barometric pressure reduced to 32° Fahrenheit at the upper station as exhibited in the third column of the following table; B' the same at the lower station as exhibited in the second column; t the temperature of the air at the upper station, t' the same at the lower station as exhibited in the fifth and the fourth columns; b the tension of aqueous vapour at the upper station, b' the same at the lower station as exhibited in the seventh and the sixth columns; h' the height of the lower station above mean sea level-here, 107.1 feet, and a the geographical latitude of the upper station-- here, about 22° 16'.

It will be remarked that no correction for barometric gradient has been applied, in fact the height of the barometer reduced to sea level does not differ more than a fraction of a thousandth of an inch between the two stations, nor is a correction for diminution of gravity with increasing height called

for as both barometers are mercurial.

The mean of the resulting differences of height increased by 107.1 feet, the height of the lower station above mean sea level, gives finally the height of the Peak at the highest level of the rock where the look-out tower is erected. The differences in the results exhibited in the last column of the table are due principally to the fact, that it has been assumed that the mean of the temperatures of the air at the Observatory and at the Peak, represents accurately the average temperature of the air between the two stations. The probable error of the final result has been determined from these differences, to be about 14 inches. The height is therefore determined with such accuracy and a more accurate result can only be obtained from several years observations.

Altitude of Victoria Peak-1818 feet +1 feet above mean sea level.

do

First. Chinese persons, other than laborers, who are now, or who may hereafter be, lawfully within the United States, and who may desire to depart from and return to the United States, may so on production of a certificate corresponding to that required by section 6 of the act of July 5, 1881, to be issued by a Chinese consular officer stationed within the United States.

Certificates issued under the act of May 6, 1882, and Decision 6240, before the passage of said act of 1884, are to be regarded as having the same effect as if said act of 1884 had not been passed.

Second. Chinese subjects, not laborers, desiring to come to the United States from countries other than China, may do so on production of a certificate corresponding to that required by section 6 of the act of July 5, 1884, to be issued by a Chinese diplomatic or consular officer, if there be one at the port of departure, countersigned by a United States consular officer, or, if there be no such Chinese officer stationed at such port, on a like certificate to be issued by a United States consular officer.

Third. The regulations contained in Decision 5544, and dated January 23, 1883, relative to the transit of Chinese laborers through the territory of the United States, will be applied to all Chinese persons intending to so go in transit through the United States.

Fourth. Chinese persons who may be compelled to touch at ports of the United States, in transit to foreign countries, may be permitted to land under the regulations of January 23, 1883, (S. 5544,) so far as the same may be applicable, such persons to take passage by the next vessel leaving for their destination or the voyage of which may form part of the route necessary to carry them to their destination.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 116.

The following letter by the Colonial Treasurer respecting the proposed establishment of a Casual Ward for destitutes is published for general information.

No. 7.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 14th March, 1885.

W. H. MARSH,

Colonial Secretary.

TREASURY,

HONGKONG, 9th February, 1885.

SIR,-With reference to the question raised by you in C. S. O. No. 157 (returned herewith) on the subject of Destitutes and a proposed Casual Ward, which was referred to me for report, I have the honour to offer the following remarks.

2. The Destitute class here, other than Chinese, is mainly composed of seamen, with a sprinkling of mechanics, artisans, persons secking employment, or those of no occupation whatever. Chinese destitutes give but little trouble, appearing chiefly as professional beggars, who may appropriately be sent back to the mainland, from which they come.

3. Seamen form the next easiest class to deal with. A non-seaman destitute's case is complicated by the difficulty of finding employment, or of getting him shipped away. It will be well therefore to consider the case of destitute seamen first, then to pass on to destitutes of other occupations or of no occupation.

4. Destitute Seamen. The provision for British seamen under the Merchant Shipping Act is practically perfect, and the definition of a British scaman has been made as wide as possible. He is a British subject who has served on a British or a foreign ship, or a foreigner who has served on a British ship. No British seaman can be in distress except through his own fault, that is to say through having deserted, having been sent to Gaol for misconduct, having been wilfully left behind, &c. He may, however, have been duly discharged elsewhere, and have come here as a passenger. But this is the fault of the public officer who allowed him to be discharged under circumstances which must lead to his becoming a burden on the public somewhere. The provision for foreign seamen is not so perfect. Those Consuls who are also merchants can seldom do anything for them. A destitute seaman therefore is either a British seaman who has deserted or been in trouble, or a foreign seaman in the same case, or one who cannot obtain relief from his Consul.

5. Such a man presents himself to any benevolent person late, let us say, in the afternoon, and. implores assistance. He has no place to sleep in and nothing to eat. He has just finished twelve weeks imprisonment for desertion or refusal of duty, so that he cannot be disposed of by a summary committal as a rogue and a vagabond. His immediate necessities are a piece of bread to eat, and a roof to sleep under: how is he to obtain them?

6. The best practicable way of disposing of him hitherto has been to induce the Gaol authorities give him both, in which case he eats at Government expense, and might just as well do so in a properly organised shelter: The worst, and most common way, is to give him money, which he Probably at once spends not in food or in lodging but in drink. Enough money is probably thus. given in the course of a year to keep all the destitutes several times over.

rather

7. This rough and ready way of converting the Gaol into a Casual Ward is not, as yet, nearly useful as it. might be, because few people know about it, and even those few regard it as king a favour, a favour moreover which involves the writing of a note-and many persons would pay any small sum than add one more to the day's quota of notes to be written. If the plan is the continued it should be put at once on an organised and well-understood footing. Tickets suring admission into the Gaol should be bound in books like cheque books, and entrusted to certain Government Officers, they should also be sold to all charitable persons who choose to buy them, a anding public notice explaining the system being kept in the newspapers. The Gaol has some Avantages. Absolute discipline and cleanliness can be enforced there free of expense. Incorrigible Vagabonds can promptly be made to understand that the Police Court is only next door, and the

234 SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 14TH MAR.. 1885.

sequel to the Police Court is hard labour. Destitutes can be given oakum to pick, thus lessening the cost of their keep. Perhaps in no other Casual Ward would it, without great expense, be possible to give bedding. Against this, however, must be set the repugnance a decent man feels "to have a key turned on him,” as some of these unfortunates say.

8. The Casual Ward here could perhaps be in one of only three places, that is to say attached to the Gaol, the Central Police Station, or the Sailor's Home. If at the Sailor's Home, the consent of the Trustees would have to be obtained either to the conversion of part of the present building into a Casual Ward, or to a small addition to the premises, for which there is probably ample room. It should consist of a room, furnished only with sloping boards for sleeping on, like those in a guard. room, or with Chinese bed-boards and tressels, or with bamboo beds, and with one or two solid fixed tables, and a few strong stools. There should also be a lavatory. The admission should be by ticket only, each ticket holding good for 24 hours. Tickets in books should be supplied free to

The Governor,

The Colonial Secretary, The Harbour Master,

The Registrar General,

The Surveyor General,

The Treasurer,

The Magistrates,

The Superintendent of the Gaol,

but all other persons should be able to obtain them at even less than cost price, say 10 cents each, or $1 for each book of 10. * Some idea of the amount of accommodation required may be gained from the experience of a Sailors' Shelter maintained here during the past four years by subscription. Bamboo beds, light, and soap and water seem to have been all that was provided, with an occasional ticket for a meal elsewhere. On the average eight men per night have occupied this shelter, which has afforded relief to about 160 different persons each year, the total expenses being as nearly as possible a dollar a day, including rent.

9. The diet should be the same as that allotted to European prisoners in the Gaol, which costs 15 cents per day each, and includes meat once in the twenty four hours. There would probably be no difficulty in arranging with the Compradore of the Sailor's Home to supply food on these conditions, and, so long as a man is costing the Government 15 cents a day, it does not much matter what building he is in. It would probably be necessary to allow the Superintendent of the Home about $20 a month for looking after the place. Strict cleanliness should be enforced by not allowing food to any man who had not done his share towards keeping it clean.

10. It may perhaps be objected that a Casual Ward at the Sailor's Home would too often become a source of disorder, noise, and riot. Such has not been the case at the voluntary refuge to which reference has been made. An occasional appeal to the police has sufficed to keep order, and, as there is a constable on duty at the Sailor's Home, and a Police Station immediately opposite, probably but little difficulty of the kind would arise. The next best place would be premises attached to the Gaol but not actually in it, or attached to the Central Police Station. Room might possibly be made at the Gaol by reconstructing the present miserable Office there, which was probably some old house or stable existing on the site when the Gaol was built.

11. Destitutes other than seamen. The chief difficulty about this class of men is, that instead of getting shipped away without expense, they cost the Colony £15 to £20 each to obtain passages elsewhere, and even then other colonies object to have them. Enquiries should be made at Calcutta and San Francisco as to the legislation in force there with regard to the responsibilities of the masters of ships who bring destitutes. It will probably be found that in the ports named not only is the master of a ship compelled to take back on board any man who is destitute, but also anyone is likely soon to become so. We should have similar legislation. It undoubtedly exercises a most wholesome check on the taking of destitutes to Calcutta.

whe

}

12. Even with such precautions in force, the moment a destitute artisan or labourer present- himself in the Colony, the same imperative necessity arises as in the case of the sailor. He must have bread to eat and a roof to cover him, at least till the next day, when perhaps better order can taken for him. And here the proposed Casual Ward is again found necessary, for it would supply both. If it be urged that the artisan or labourer will stay in such an asylum for an indefinite period, must be remembered that prison fare and a plank bed do not tend to invite a long stay anywhere, and there should also be a legal remedy against confirmed idlers and vagabonds, viz. to send them t hard labour.

Since writing the above an excellent ticket system of the kind described has been started by voluntary organisation, the relief he

given at the Temperance Hall. The expense however is much greater than that suggested above, each destituie relieved costing · the rate of $6 a week.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 14TH MAR., 1885. 235

13. Married destitutes are met with so seldom that it is not worth while to make any special provision for them. When such a case presents itself, the only thing to do would be to get the Colonial Surgeon or the Colonial Chaplain to find out, if possible, some decent people who would be willing to ke in the man and his wife for a little while on moderate terms till better arrangements could be made.

14. As a good many of the community here are interested in this subject, it might possibly be orth while to print this report as an appendix to the Gazette. Its public discussion can hardly fail to elicit some useful suggestions. Printed copies might then be circulated to

QUESTION.-The Honourable WONG SHING, pursuant to notice, asked whether any apology or explanation has been received from the French Authorities for the reported outrage committed on board a Coal barge in this Harbour on the 19th February last, while the barge was being employed to supply Coal to the French Man-of-war Duguay Trouin.

His Excellency the Governor replied as follows:-I am glad to be enabled to reply to the Honourable gentleman who so worthily represents in this Council his Chinese countrymen in a manner which I believe he cannot fail to consider satisfactory. When at the last meeting of Council my Honourable friend gave notice of his question, I observed as follows:---

"With reference to the question of which. the Honourable gentleman has given notice, I may mention now that the important matter to which he refers has not escaped my attention. A report on the subject was addressed to the Government by the Police, when I caused an official letter to be addressed to the French Consul. That gentleman has "replied that he will make enquiry forthwith, and state the result. Accordingly, when the Honourable gentleman asks the question of which he has given notice at the next meeting of this Council, I shall probably be in a position to afford him further information."

I have since received a letter from the French Consul containing a full explanation and expression of regret for the occurrence in question. He states that a misunderstanding arose between the French officers and the European contractor respecting the quality of the coal supplied to the French cruiser Duguay Trouin, for as a very limited quantity of coal is, in accordance with the instructions of Her Majesty's Government, permitted to be supplied to the men-of-war of the belligerent powers it is necessary to test the quality of the article furnished. Further, the Consul states that he regrets that any incident should have happened in consequence of this misunderstanding to give ground of complaint, and that he has written to the French naval authorities, so as to prevent a recurrence of any incident of a similar nature. He adds that the officer commanding the Duguay Trouin and the officers of the French navy generally fully recognise the necessity of avoiding all cause of dispute between the French seamen and the Chinese resident in this Colony, and of observing more faithfully than ever, under existing circumstances, the respect due to British sovereignty in the waters of Hongkong.

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 hapiers 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.
