THE LATEST AMERICAN INVENTION.

THE VICTORY OF ELECTRICITY.

INCE Electricity has been applied for light-

been directed to construct a lamp for general domestic use. The reason why this problem has till now not been solved, is that none of the inventors could rid themselves of the idea of gas lighting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some cential place, or by large machinery, instead of first laying down the principle that a Lamp which should ever become generally useful and popular, must be portable, like an Oil Lamp, and contain the generator of Electricity in itself, i. e., in the foot of the Lamp.

The Norman Electric Light Co. has at last succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of Electric Lighting, and there is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a complete revolution in all branches of light- ing.

Our Electric Lamp, needs neither Machi- nery, Conductors, nor any expensive outlay, and is neither complicated, nor disagreable in manipulation; all that is necessary is to refill The cost it every four or five days with acid. of lighting will be as cheap as gas (3 cents per hour), and it has before the latter the im- mense advantage of neither producing heat, smoke nor carbonic acid, owing to which the air is not impured, and remains at the same degree of temperature. It is further, absolutely inodorous, and does not need to be kindled by match, or otherwise, but simply by turning the key, thus avoiding all danger of fire, ex- plosion or suffocation, as in the case of gas, if the key is left open; and it must be conceded that this advantage alone is invaluable. It is further preferable to any known kind of light- ing for the following reasons:

(1.) Its manipulation is so simple that any child can keep it in order.

(2.) That the Lamp is portable, and can be removed like any Oil Lamp, from one place to another.

(3.) That it neither requires the disagreeable fixing of the wick, or the cleaning of the cylinder, as in the case of Oil Lamps.

(4.) That the light produced is a soft and most steady one; that it never flickers, and the flame, though being equal in power of lighting to gas, can be regulated to any degree.

(5.) That every danger of fire is absolutely excluded, as the light will extinguish imme- diately, if by any accident the glass surrounding the burner should be broken.

(6.) That it will burn, even in the strongest wind, completely unaffected, thus being inva- luable for illuminations, lighting of gardens,

corridors, etc.

This Lamp is constructed for the present in three different sizes :-

Address:

--

5

A, small size. Height of complete Lamp, 14 inches; weight, about 5 pounds; for lighting rooms, cellars, storage houses, powder magazines (or similar places where explosives are kept), coaches, illuminations, gardens, mines, or any other industrial purpose. Price, £1.

Per Lamp, delivered free to any part of the world.

B, medium size. Serves all domestic purposes for lighting rooms, houses, etc. This Lamp is elegantly decorated, and has removable white ground Glass Globe.

Price, per Lamp (inclusive of Bronze Foot and Globe, richly and elegantly constructed), £2.- delivered free to any part of the world.

C. Grand size for Parlor, Hall, Saloon, Public Building, &c. The Lamp gives a most brilliant and steady light, has large removable white Globe, decorated most tastefully, and the workmanship is both first-class and elegant. Price £4.10. -.

Foot of Lamp in either Bronze, Japanese, Faience or Silver Oxide.

Any special size or design made to order. Estimates furnished.

All Lamps are ready for immediate use, and will be sent, securely packed in strong wooden box, with printed directions for use, a quantity of chemicals sufficient for several months' lighting, and one extra burner for size A, and two for sizes B and C. The necessary che- micals can be purchased in any Drug Store, in even the smallest village.

Every Lamp is accompanied by a written guarantee for one year, and will be exchanged, or money refunded, if the same should not give complete satisfaction.

On all orders for six Lamps and above, a discount of six per cent. will be allowed. No orders from abroad filled, unless accompanied by a remittance to cover the amount, or first- class references on a New York or Philadelphia house.

The best method of sending money is by draft on New York, which can be procured at any Banker, and everywhere, or enclose the amount in Bank notes, gold coins, or postage stamps of any country of the world.

All orders, the smallest, as well as the most important, will receive the same particular attention, and will be forwarded without delay.

Our Electric Lamps are protected by law, and all imitations and infringements will be prosecuted.

Agents, Salesmen on Commission, and Consignees for our Lamps, wanted everywhere. No special knowledge or capital required.

A fortune to be made by active persons.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 9TH JANUARY, 1886.

BILL ENTITLED THE MUNICIPAL RATES ORDINANCE, 1885.-IN COMMITTEE.-The Council resumed consideration, in Committee, of this Bill.

The Honourable P. RYRIE addressed the Council at length on clause 20, pointing out that Quarry Bay should not be rated the same as Victoria.

His Excellency the Governor then said:-

HONOURABLE GENTLEMEN,--I desire to state that it is highly satisfactory to me that I

uld have

now passed an Ordinance which, for the first time in the history of this Colony, places the entire taxation under the control of this Council.

FAREWELL ADDRESS OF HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR.-His Excellency the Governor wast pleased to speak as follows:--

HONOURABLE GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL,

I desire to announce officially to you that I intend to proceed from this Colony to India, on my way to England, on the 19th of this month. As you are already aware, I had obtained leave of absence on medical certificate at the beginning of this year, but I then felt that it was my duty to remain at my post during the protracted crisis of the Franco-Chinese hostilities, and of the threatened war with Russia. Her Majesty's Government have expressed "their high appreciation of the public spirit which led me to this decision." Now that peace has been restored, the permission to return to England has been renewed. After twenty-six years' continuous service as the Representative of the Queen in five Colonies successively, it will be agreed that I have fully earned a period of rest.

2. One of the most eminent of the Governors of Crown Colonies, in bidding farewell to his Council, remarked: "I think it very useful that the last Address of a Governor should be exhaustive; that it should touch on all subjects of public interest; that it should be a standard of comparison by which the progress of the Colony may be measured at different epochs." Accordingly, in pursuance

of the custom established elsewhere, I will take advantage of this opportunity to place on record a brief review of the principal acts of my administration here, which has lasted for nearly three years. These years have been very critical and eventful both as regards this Colony, the centre of British power, influence and commerce in the Far East, and also as regards European interests generally in this quarter of the globe, which contains one-fourth of the human race, and which must yet fill a great place in the history of the world.

3. Soon after my assumption of this Government in the early part of the year 1883, I satisfied myself, after careful study of the position of your affairs, that there were three subjects of pressing importance to which I should first direct my special attention. These were :--

(a.) The reconstitution of the Legislative Council.

(b.) The commencement of the much-needed Works of Water-supply and Sanitation. (c.) The Defence of the Colony.

4. To the reconstitution of this Council, so as to make it representative of the Colony generally, I attached primary importance; for when an energetic English community like that of Hongkong has acquired an adequate voice and control in the management of its own local and municipal affairs, all necessary and well-considered internal reforms should follow. Accordingly, I procured the assent of the Imperial Government to a large increase in the number of the un-official members, while I gave the privilege of freely nominating their own representatives to the two principal Public Bodies, viz. the Bench of Magistrates and the Chamber of Commerce, which comprise the chief residents of every nationality. Thus the property, intelligence, and education of the Colony are now directly repre- sented in this Council. I observed in a previous address: "it will always be one of the most satisfactory reminiscences of my long public career that I have been able to procure a more adequate representation in this Council of the community at large."

5. Again, when I found that under the former law of this Colony, the power of assessing the Municipal taxation was vested solely in the Governor, I procured the consent of Her Majesty's Government to the removal of this anomaly, which was probably without precedent in any other part of the British Empire. Thus, here as elsewhere, the entire taxation of the Colony will henceforth be under the control of the Colonial Legislature.

6. Moreover, in opening the Session for 1884, I addressed you reasons, it is in the highest degree important that this Council should forms followed by the Legislatures of the other principal Crown Colonies.

as follows: "For obvic is adhere to the constitutional The address of the Governor

at the opening of each annual Session, will contain, here as elsewhere, a general view of the Financial and Social condition of the Colony, and a statement of the Legislative and other measures, and of the public works proposed. So the Address of the Council in reply will afford the members of the Legislature the usual constitutional opportunity of expressing their opinion of the conduct and proposals of the Government." To these observations you replied as follows: We concur in the advisability of assimilating the proceedings of this Legislature to the constitutional forms established in the other principal Crown Colonies."

7. Simultaneously with the steps taken towards the reconstitution of this Council. I gave authority, with your consent. for the commencement of those large measures of Water-supply and Sanitation, which Mr. CHADWICK, the Commissioner sent out from England, had reported to be absolutely necessary for the immediate benefit of the public health :" but which were in abeyance on my arrival. Among the more prominent of these public works have been the very extensive improvenients and additions to the main drainage of the City; and to the roadways and pavements. more especially in the Chinese quarters; together with the organization of a complete system of practical sanitation and daily removal of waste products; the reclamation and embanking of noxious foreshores at Kennedy Town, Hung- hom, and Yaumati, and their conversion into healthy and remunerative building land; the extension of the City to the westward, and the opening out of new areas to the commercial and industrial enterprise of the Colony; the construction of mountain roads for the health and recreation of the community, and the utilization of mountain sites for the erection of summe: residences; the continued spread of tree-planting in the hitherto arid hill districts of the island, to the eventual amelioration of the climate; these, and many other kindred works of scarcely less interest to the health and well- being of the people, have been inaugurated with your assistance and by your votes, during my adminis-

tration.

8. You are already aware that, while authorising the works required for the internal health and progress of the Colony. I took early and effective measures for its external defence. On May 12th, 1883, only six weeks after my assumption of this Government, I opened the question of the Defences in an elaborate despatch to the Secretary of State, in which, after entering fully into detailed statements and arguments, I added: "It has been frequently shown that Hongkong commands our trade routes in the Far East; that shipping to the amount of above five millions of tons (a larger tonnage than that which entered the Port of London forty years ago), yearly enters this Port; and that it is of paramount importance not to suffer any nation, or possible confederacy of nations, to destroy or lessen the prestige and influence of Great Britain with China and Japan, those rich and vast countries which have in all human probability a great future before them." I concluded in the following terms:- I submit that your Lordship should move the War Office to prepare a full and final plan for the defences of Hongkong, and that such plan should be transmitted to both the Governor and the General Commanding the Troops, with instructions to use all the authority and influence of their respective offices to assist in carrying it into execution." I followed up this opening by a long series of official despatches and of private letters to English Statesmen, and to the chief Authorities at the War Office. My persistent representations, aided by those of the Naval and Military Authorities at this Station, and by the energetic support of this Council. have led to the undertaking of that system of Defence Works which is now being vigorously pushed forward by General CAMERON. Moreover, my application, also supported by this Council, for a flotilla of torpedo boats was granted by Her Majesty's Government. As I said in a recent address: "It is morally certain that our defences by land and sea will be com- pleted before there will be any occasion to test them: and, as you already know, the highest Naval and Military Authorities in the Empire consider that, when completed, they will place Hongkong in safety against foreign attack."

9. I may next remind you that the action of my Government throughout the difficult and delicate crisis of the Franco-Chinese hostilities met with the entire approval of the Imperial Government. With the support of Admiral Sir W. DOWELL. with whom I was in constant communication. I main- tained British rights and British neutrality, and, at the same time, I preserved friendly relations with the Belligerent Powers. Socially, I made the Government House a neutral ground on which English, French, American, German, Russian, Italian, Chinese, and Japanese Ministers, Admirals, Generals, and other high Officers, on visiting this Port, frequently met, and so learned to be in good humour with England, and to some extent with each other.

10. I have never failed to direct, from time to time, the attention of the Imperial Government, and of the British Legation at Peking, to measures calculated to advance the interests of the mercantile community, such as the opening to commerce of the great South-Western Provinces of China. The cordial co-operation of the Chamber of Commerce has never failed me.

11. Throughout my administration, I have devoted much care to the improvement of the public institutions and establishments; and, above all, to public education. I have elsewhere expressed my belief that the new Victoria College, with its scholarships enabling some of the most promising students to complete their education in England, will render an important service not only to this Colony, but also ultimately to the neighbouring Empire of China; and that this will prove a powerful and honourable method of extending British influence. Already indeed several men in high office under the Chinese Government owe their education to the schools established at Hongkong under British auspices.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 9TH JANUARY, 1886.

12. In connection with our public establishments, I desire to place on ecord my high appreciation of the ability. diligence, and public spirit of the Heads of the chief Departments of Government who form the Executive Council: and of the faithful and eflicient discharge of their duty by the Civil Service generally.

13. With regard to Legislation, there have been passed during my administration fifty-five Ordinances; many of which are additions of permanent value to the Statute-Book.

14. To sum up :-The reconstitution of this Council, with increased control over the management of the local affairs and taxation of the Colony ;--the extensive Works of Water-supply, Sanitation, and Defence: --the new Victoria College; the new Public Park; the reclamation of Causeway Bay; together, with many other important Public Works;-a large amount of useful and practical t legislation; these must ever remain permanent monuments alike of my administration, and of your support. Whatever measure of success may have been gained by my Government, it could not have been achieved without your able, experienced, and hearty assistance. As I remarked once before, "Governors and Legislatures should speak by their actions;" and it is confidently hoped that our united efforts will be found hereafter to have promoted the general welfare of all races and classes in this Colony.

Finally, in bidding you Farewell, I pray that you, Honourable Gentlemen, and the long line of your successors in this Council, may exercise your important functions through years of growing prosperity and happiness. During the brief period of forty-three years which have elapsed since this island, then barren and desolate, was erected into a British Colony, it has risen, by the blessing of Providence on the enterprise and energy of our race, to the proud position of the third greatest Mart of shipping in the British Empire, ranking next after London and Liverpool. If this city cannot boast the ancient historical associations of the great cities of the Mother-Country, it will be remembered that (as it has been truly observed), the lot cannot be considered otherwise than fortunate of those who have to make, instead of inheriting history.

The Honourable P. RYRIE then addressed His Excellency as follows:-

Your Excellency, I rise to move an address in reply to the eloquent address you have just given us. It gives me much pleasure to record that since you have been President of this Council your management of the public business of the colony has been such as I have never seen equalled in this chamber. I think that since we have had these regular meetings the business has gone on much more smoothly, and if anything happens we always meet again very soon and can put the matter straight. The Council has, during the whole of your time here, been a most harmonious one. Now and then there have been discussions; perhaps I myself have been the greatest disturber of the peace-but the other members of Council have taken my ebullitions very good naturedly, your Excellency especially. With these remarks, if your Excellency will allow me. I will read the address in reply:--

MAY IT PLEASE YOUR EXCELLENCY.

We, the Members of the Legislative Council. have listened with great interest to your Excellency's review of the history and progress of public affairs during the term of your administration of this Government. This period, though shorter than a Governor's usual tenure of office. has been marked by events of the greatest interest to the communities in the Far East, and more especially to the com- munity of this Colony. We agree with your Excellency as to the undoubted usefulness of a glance at past, which is too apt, under the continuous pressure of business, to be forgotten in the absorbing interests of the present.

the

2. Your Excellency's administration will always be associated in our minds with much personal kindness, consideration, and hospitality, as well as with the memory of a constant and assiduous attention to facilitating the course of public business.

3. We are glad of this opportunity of acknowledging the great services your Excellency has rendered to the cause of good government in this Colony by your successful efforts towards a larger and fairer representation of its community, and a more effective control of our finances. We have lately learned with pleasure the progress made in our greatest public work, the extensive scheme for improving the water-supply of the city. We cannot but regard with satisfaction the rapid and indeed wonderful development of this Colony, both during the past forty years and as it is proceeding at present; and we are happy to think that the day is not far distant when the defences of Hongkong may be considered commensurate with the magnitude of the interests to be protected. We join with your Excellency in the fervent hope that the public works commenced, and the changes inaugurated during your administration will bear ample fruit in the future to the permanent benefit of the Colony.

4. We rejoice that a tedious and desolating war has been brought to a close, and the difficult questions raised by it happily terminated. We congratulate your Excellency on the success with which you maintained the difficult attitude of neutrality during the serious crisis forced on this Colony by conflicting interests of international importance.

5. In cordially reciprocating your Excellency's kind expressions, we can only hope that every administration of the Government of Hongkong will be marked by an observance of the same sound constitutional rules which have invariably guided you, by the same healthful freedom of speech and abundant opportunity for debate, and by the same avoidance of any tendency to infuse private views and individual fancies into the legitimate current of public business.

6. With these words we respectfully bid your Excellency Farewell, hoping that you may long enjoy the rest earned by more than a quarter of a century's service, and that your unequalled experience may be found of service in the Councils of the Empire.

His Excellency replied as follows:-

I can only say a few words in thanking my Honourable Friend, the Senior Un-official Member, for the extremely kind terms in which he has spoken of me; and I thank the Council for this most gratifying reply to my address. I shall always as long as I live treasure it as one of the most precious heirlooms of my family.

There being no other business on the Order of the Day, the Council adjourned until Wednes day, the 6th proximo, at 4 P.M.

THE LATEST AMERICAN INVENTION.

THE VICTORY OF ELECTRICITY.

[INCE Electricity has been applied for light-

been directed to construct a lamp for general domestic use. The reason why this problem has till now not been solved, is that none of the inventors could rid themselves of the idea of gas lighting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some central place, or by large machinery, instead of first laying down the principle that a Lamp. which should ever become generally useful and popular, must be portable, like an Oil Lanip, and contain the generator of Electricity in itself, i, e., in the foot of the Lamp.

The Norman Electric Light Co. has at Inst succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of Electric Lighting, and there is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a complete revolution in all branches of light- ing.

Our Electric Lamp, needs neither Machi- nery, Conductors, nor any expensive outlay, and is neither complicated, nor disagreable in manipulation; all that is necessary is to refill it every four or five days with acid. The cost of lighting will be as cheap us gas (3 cents per hour), and it has before the latter the im- inense advantage of neither producing heat, smoke nor carbonic acid, owing to which the air is not impured, and remains at the same degree of temperature. It is further, absolutely inodorous, and does not need to be kindled by match, or otherwise, but simply by turning the key, thus aroiding all danger of fire, ex- plosion or suffocation, as in the case of gas, if the key is left open; and it must be conceded that this advantage alone is invaluable. It is further preferable to any known kind of light- ing for the following reasons:

(1.) Its manipulation is so simple that any child can keep it in order.

(2.) That the Lamp is portable, and can be removed like any Oil Lamp, from one place to another.

(3.) That it neither requires the disagreeable fixing of the wick, or the cleaning of the cylinder, as in the case of Oil Lamps.

(4.) That the light produced is a soft and most steady one; that it never flickers, and the flame, though being equal in power of lighting to gas, can be regulated to any degree.

(5.) That every danger of fire is absolutely

excluded, as the light will extinguish imme- diately, if by any accident the glass surrounding

the burner should be broken.

(6.) That it will barn, even in the strongest wind, completely unaffected, thus being inva- luable for illuminations, lighting of gardens,

corridors, etc.

This Lainp is constructed for the present in three different sizes:

Address:

A, small size. Height of complete Lamp, 14 inches; weight, about 5 pounds; for lighting, rooms, cellars, storage houses, powder magazines (or similar places where explosives are kept), coaches, illuminations, gardens, mines, or any: other industrial purpose. Price, £1.

Per Lamp, delivered free to any part of the world.

--.

B. medium size. Serves all domestic purposes for lighting rooms, houses, etc. This Lamp is elegantly decorated, and har removable white ground Glass Globe.

£2.

Price, per Lamp (inclusive of Bronze Foot and Globe, richly and elegantly constructed), delivered free to any part of the world. C. Grand sizo for Parlor, Hall, Saloon, Public Building, &c. The Lamp gives a most brilliant and steady light, has large removable white Globe, decorated most tastefully, ald the workmanship is both first-class and elegant. Price $4.10. -

Foot of Lamp in either Bronze, Japanese, Faience or Silver Oxide.

Any special size or design made to order. Estimates furnished.

All Lamps are ready for immediate use, and will be sent, securely packed in strong wooden box, with printed directions for use, a quantity of chemicals sufficient for several months' lighting, and one extra burver for size A, and two for sizes B and C. The necessary che- micals can be purchased in any Drug Store, in even the smallest village.

Every Lamp is accompanied by a written guarantee for one year, and will be exchanged, or money refunded, if the same should not give complete satisfaction.

On all orders for six Lamps and above, a discount of six per cent, will be allowed. No orders from abroad filled, unless accompanied by a remittance to cover the amount, or first- class references on a New York or Philadelphia house.

*

The best method of sending money is by draft on New York, which can be procured at any Banker, and everywhere, or enclose the amount in Bank notes, gold coins, or postage stamps of any country of the world.

All orders, the smallest, as well as the most important, will receive the same particular attention, and will be forwarded without delay.

Acting Colonial Secretary.

}

GENERAL POst- Office, HONGKONG, January 1st, 1886.

SIR, I have the honour to report on the British Postal service in Hongkong and China during $385.

2. For several years past the Annual Report of this Department has been commenced with a Femark on the absence of anything of importance to record. The year under review has, however, been somewhat eventful.

3. The Money Order relations of this Colony have undergone a very marked extension. In the Postal Report for 1878 the following passage will be found:-

Applications are not infrequently received for Money Orders on Continental Countries, the United States, &c., and though it would Fertainly not be worth while to keep accounts with those countries for the sake of, perhaps. one order every three months exchanged with eich, yet such applications are always refused with regret. If there were a sort of International clearing-house, say at Berne, and it were understood that each Post Office should keep accounts with that clearing-house, and with that only, it would then be not only possible, but also easy for every Union country to exchange Money Orders with every other Union country."

4. To a very great extent the above suggestion has been realised. The International clearing- house, however, is not at Berne, but in London, and the system of Through Money Orders (as they are called) adopted there has admitted this Colony to money order relations with nearly the whole of the Continent of Europe, the United States, Canada, Bermuda, the South and West African Colonies, Cyprus, Egypt, the Falkland Islands, Honduras, the West Indies, Iceland, Madeira, Mauritius, New- foundland, S. Helena, the Seychelles, and New Zealand. Chinese in New Zealand send money orders here through London rather than not send them at all. A money order exchange with France has been arranged by way of India, and the same means has been adopted for the exchange of money orders with Goa. In addition to these, conventions for the direct exchange of orders have been entered into with Hawaii and North Borneo.

5. The following table shews the number of Through Money Orders which have been forwarded by way of London since the system was commenced a year ago. It will be seen how impracticable it would be to maintain a separate system with each country whilst the amount of business is so small, and yet that the total amount remitted is not inconsiderable.

6. The sale of Postal Notes has kept up juring the year. They are a great oonvenience at the maller Ports, where Money Orders are not to be had. The steady decline in the value of silver has however, introduced some difficulty into the system. It is absolutely necessary to offer these notes for sale at a fixed rate of exchange, which of course must not be more than a trifle above the rate o the day.

But, whatever rate has been fixed, exchange has always slipped down lower, thus necessitating frequent re-adjustment of account and leading to much trouble.

7. Siam has entered the Postal Union, and a properly organised Post Office has been opened a Bangkok under the direction of H. R. H. Somdet Phra Chow Nong Ya Tho Chow Fa Bhanurangs Swangwongse Krom Hluang Bhanuphanduwongse Woradej, Minister of Posts and Telegraphs. A kind of unrecognised agency of the Hongkong Post Office used to be maintained in the Consulate Genera at Bangkok, where Hongkong stamps were sold, and where a letter could be registered. The nev service is in every way an improvement, and completes the chain of Post Offices which may now b said to encircle Asia, at least from Aden to Hakodate. The gradual opening of Corea has of course le to a considerable increase of correspondence for that country.

8. Perhaps the event of the year most interesting to the public has been the establishment of Parcel Post with the United Kingdom and several West Indian islands. This service is as yet in it infancy, but the following figures will show that it is likely to be largely availed of:-

My Post Office in the United Kingdom, at the rate of 10d. a lb, and that it will be conveyed under istration to, and delivered free at any of the Ports named in the last paragraph, or that it can be rwarded, at the sender's risk, to any other place in China to which there is communication.

12. It is already evident that the inward Parcel system will lead to a number of those false rms about losses which are always being raised from time to time about every kind of correspond- cc. The Parcel nail leaves London only fortnightly, and even then comes out by way of Gibraltar. i quite possible therefore that a letter may arrive here nearly three weeks before a parcel posted bout the same time. The addressee meanwhile is convinced his parcel is lost Except however by ome casualty, such as fire or shipwreck, there is no probability that any parcel will be lost.

13. The Money Order extensions and the Parcel Post system reviewed above have of course added ery considerably to the work of this Department. On the other hand a proposal has been submitted the Imperial Post Office to lighten that work by the abolition of the present complicated system of counts kept between this Office and London. The Postal Union regulations have practically swept ay all Postal Accounts with other countries, but the old-fashioned system of accounts with London has been retained. It has been pointed out that the difference between the total balances for one year nd another, even taking extreme cases, does not amount to £150, and that it would be cheaper for the Colony to pay that sum annually than to keep elaborate accounts of a charge of twopence-half- Penny on this letter and sixpence on that. The question will, it is hoped, be settled by the entire adoption of Union principles between the two offices.

14. The series of Postage Stamps in use has been re-arranged so as to consist entirely of decimal The desirability of having only one issue of Stamps for both Postal and Revenue purposes has not been lost sight of, but certain difficulties must be overcome before this can be brought about.

15. Mr. LEIRIA, the senio

clerk in this Office, retired on pension after thirty-two years good Bervice. Mr. HUTCHISON, Acting Assistant Postmaster General, obtained an appointment in Cores before the return from leave of absence of Mr. TRAVERS, whom he had replaced, and the Department was again left without Assistant. It is impossible to speak too highly of the way in which the work was carried on during the interim by Messrs. RocHA and MACHADO, who were entrusted with the duty of supervising the routine of the service. During this time a period of International Statistics occurred (the month of May) the complicated details of which were dealt with satisfactorily.

16. An International Congress assembled at Lisbon in February last for the purpose of revising extending and perfecting what are now practically the postal arrangements of the world. It is impossi ble to lay down the two ponderous volumes which record the proceedings of this conference, or even the regised Convention which formed its principal work, without a feeling of disappointment. Regula tions are left that would have been better abolished, whilst, of the few changes that have been made some are of questionable utility. The entry of the Australian and South African Colonies into the Union seems little nearer than it was five years ago. The vexatious and needless distinction between Printed and Commercial Papers is retained, as is a frivolous regulation for a compulsory exchange o specimen Postage Stamps. The period of Statistics has been made to recur every three instead of two years, and this is a real boon. Moreover the rational system of multiplication advocated from the first by this Office has been adopted. The results of 28 days' observations are to be multiplied by 13 instead of multiplying a month's totals by 12. When five mails leave within the mouth it is obvious that on the latter system this Colony would pay as for sixty mails in the year, whereas there are bu fifty-two.

17. The fee for Registry of Local correspondence has been reduced to 5 cents, which, at presen rates of exchange, is the same as the fee of 2d. charged at home for Registration. It is hoped that this increased facility will tend to check the habit of forwarding bank notes in unregistered letters. Some years ago the Postal system of the United Kingdom was seriously deranged on accoun

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVE GAZETTE OF 9TH JAN, 1886.

of the thousands of letters which arrived in, London every morning containing Postage Stamps. People advertised. Send thirteen stamps for this; Send five shillings' worth of stamps for that. A sorter or postman who stole a bundle of letters at random was certain to find several of them containing stamps. This Office has had to struggle hard not to suffer in the same way from the persistence with which residents at the Ports, chiefly Canton and Swatow, will, in spite of all remonstrances, pay their small bills here by means of bank notes sent in unregistered covers. Chinese do not steal bundles of letters at haphazard, they select those that feel tempting, and unfortunately it is not only or even chiefly the people that enclose bank notes in letters who suffer, the correspon dence of others is taken. At one time it seemed to be rapidly becoming the rule that even a sample of calico or cloth put into a letter marked it for immediate theft.

18. The whole work of a Post Office is organised on the supposition that ordinary letters will contain nothing of intrinsic or immediately convertible value. If it were certain that every letter would contain a bank note, each letter as posted would have to be entered on a list, and to be recorded throughout its entire transit, just as a registered article is. The number of officers employed would grow to that of a standing army. If therefore a portion of the public will persist in throwing on the Post Office a responsibility which it notifies on every opportunity its organisation does not enable it to accept, they must be left to take the consequences.

19. An endeavour has been made to establish three regular deliveries, at 9, 12, and 3. As steamers arrive here at any hours, a system of this kind cannot be carried out very strictly, at least without greatly increased staff, but it answers fairly well for the slacker days when no contract mails arrive. It is unfortunate that, as a general rule, the postmen have to leave for their afternoon rounds before the Canton steamer is in. They are not back till late, and the half-dozen letters from Canton may not be distributed till after dark. It is really impossible to make the whole arrangements of the Office depend on this tiny handful of correspondence. Those who may have felt aggrieved about Canton letters will perhaps accept this explanation. During the war the inconvenience was particularly marked, as it was never known whether the steamer was to be expected or not.

20. The Franco-chinese war was not a happy period in Postal matters. The regular packet service to Shanghai was suspended, the mails being carried by private ships which often started after a very short interval. On one occasion the Shanghai mail had to be sent up unsorted. Correspondence for Formosa was forwarded with difficulty, and for considerable periods not at all. Pakhoi suffered from the same difficulties, but only for a short while. The alarm of a blockade was raised at Swatow, and arrangements were in readiness to transport the mails overland. Fortunately they were not called into requisition. Ningpo was blockaded during several weeks.

21. The French packets now call at Kobe both on their upward and downward passages, which much simplifies the conveyance of mails to that Port. The mails for Japan were sent on with fair regularity throughout the year, no serious detention for want of connecting steamers having taken place.

22. The attention of both the British and French Post Offices has been called to the inconvenience caused by the English and French mails arriving, as they did during all the first half of the year, almost together. The remedy lay in the hands of the French Post Office. As the representation to it was made by its own Agents, not by this office, it is not known what view has been taken of the subject, but the evil has for the present disappeared.

-

23. Perhaps a more serious inconvenience to the community is the frequent departure of the American mail on the same day as the mail for Europe. This is a most unfortunate arrangement, and one that surely cannot be absolutely necessary. In the Post Office its results are very trying. The verandahs and the windows are blocked up with Chinese purchasing stamps and posting their letters, Europeans find it almost impossible to get what they want, and, two days' work being compressed into one, neither mail can be despatched with the desirable care and accuracy.

24. The trans-Pacific steamers ceased for some weeks to bring mails from San Francisco. The effect on the outward mails to that port was very marked; as far as the Chinese community is concerned correspondence almost ceased to be posted. It would seem to be certain that Chinese have again discovered some way of smuggling their correspondence into the United States, or else the vigilance of the Customs Officers has been relaxed. The outward mails for San Francisco are nothing like what they were a year ago. No doubt the same number of letters are sent, but they are sent otherwise than through the Post Office. The inward mails from San Francisco are at present being brought by the steamers of the O. & O. Co. only, the Pacific Mail steamer not bringing any.

It appears, that the observed declinations are insufficient to prove any secular change, and that the was about 1860, increasing three or four minutes, and about 1880 about one minute yearly. The total force appears to be slowly increasing.

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.

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 LATEST AMERICAN INVENTION.

THE VICTORY OF ELECTRICITY.

NINCE Electricity has been applied for light-

ing purposes, all efforts of inventors have been directed to construct a lamp for general domestic use. The reason why this problem has till now not been solved, is that none of the inventors could rid themselves of the idea of gas lighting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some central place, or by large machinery, instead of first laying down the principle that a Lamp which should ever become generally useful and popular, must be portable, like an Oil Lamp, and contain the generator of Electricity in itself, i. e., in the foot of the Lamp.

The Norman Electric Light Co. has at last succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of Electric Lighting, and there is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a complete revolution in all branches of light- ing.

Our Electric Lamp, needs neither Machi- nery, Conductors, nor any expensive outlay, and is neither complicated, nor disagreable in manipulation; all that is necessary is to refill it every four or five days with acid. The cost of lighting will be as cheap as gas (3 cents per hour), and it has before the latter the im- mense advantage of neither producing heat, smoke nor carbonic acid, owing to which the air is not impured, and remains at the same degree of temperature. It is further, absolutely inodorous, and does not need to be kindled by match, or otherwise, but simply by turning the key, thus avoiding all danger of fire, ex- plosion or suffocation, as in the case of gas, if the key is left open; and it must be conceded that this advantage alone is invaluable. It is further preferable to any known kind of light- ing for the following reasons:

(1.) Its manipulation is so simple that any child can keep it in order.

(2.) That the Lamp is portable, and can be removed like any Oil Lamp, from one place to another.

(3.) That it neither requires the disagreeable fixing of the wick, or the cleaning of the cylinder, as in the case of Oil Lamps.

(4.) That the light produced is a soft and most steady one; that it never flickers, and the flame, though being equal in power of lighting to gas, can be regulated to any degree.

(5.) That every danger of fire is absolutely excluded, as the light will extinguish imme- diately, if by any accident the glass surrounding the burner should be broken.

(6.) That it will burn, even in the strongest wind, completely unaffected, thus being inva- luable for illuminations, lighting of gardens,

corridors, etc.

This Lamp is constructed for the present in three different sizes:-

Address:

, small size. Height of complete Lamp, 14 inches; weight, about 5 pounds; for lighting rooms, cellars, storage houses, powder magazines (or similar places where explosives are kept), coaches, illuminations, gardens, mines, or any other industrial purpose. Price, £1.-

Foot of Lamp in either Bronze, Japanese, Faience or Silver Oxide.

Any special size or design made to order. Estimates furnished.

All Lamps are ready for immediate use, and will be sent, securely packed in strong wooden box, with printed directions for use, a quantity of chemicals sufficient for several months' lighting, and one extra burner for size A, and two for sizes B and C. The necessary che- micals can be purchased in any Drug Store, in even the smallest village.

Every Lamp is accompanied by a written guarantee for one year, and will be exchanged, or money refunded, if the same should not give complete satisfaction.

On all orders for six Lamps and above, a discount of six per cent. will be allowed. No orders from abroad filled, unless accompanied by a remittance to cover the amount, or first- class references on a New York or Philadelphia house.

The best method of sending money is by draft on New York, which can be procured at any Banker, and everywhere, or enclose the amount in Bank notes, gold coins, or postage stamps of any country of the world.

The Government is pledged to undertake this work, and as it is estimated that the reclaimed area, which will be rendered available for sale when the work is completed, will realize a sum of at least $35,000, the Council will no doubt see no difficulty in voting this extra expenditure.

THE LATEST AMERICAN INVENTION.

THE VICTORY OF ELECTRICITY.

INCE Electricity has been applied for light-

been directed to construct a lamp for general domestic use. The reason why this problem has till now not been solved, is that none of the inventors could rid themselves of the idea of gas lighting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some central place, or by large machinery, instead of first laying down the principle that a Lamp which should ever become generally useful and popular, must be portable, like an Oil Lamp, and contain the generator of Electricity in itself, i. e., in the foot of the Lamp.

The Norman Electric Light Co. has at last succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of Electric Lighting, and there is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a complete revolution in all branches of light- ing.

Our Electric Lamp, needs neither Machi- nery, Conductors, nor any expensive outlay, and is neither complicated, nor disagreable in manipulation; all that is necessary is to refill it every four or five days with acid. The cost of lighting will be as cheap as gas ( cents per hour), and it has before the latter the im- mense advantage of neither producing heat, smoke nor carbonic acid, owing to which the air is not impured, and remains at the same degree of temperature. It is further, absolutely inodorous, and does not need to be kindled by match, or otherwise, but simply by turning the key, thus avoiding all danger of fire, ex- plosion or suffocation, as in the case of gas, if the key is left open; and it must be conceded that this advantage alone is invaluable. It is further preferable to any known kind of light- ing for the following reasons:

(1.) Its manipulation is so simple that any child can keep it in order.

(2.) That the Lamp is portable, and can be removed like any Oil Lamp, from one place to another.

(3.) That it neither requires the disagreeable fixing of the wick, or the cleaning of the cylinder, as in the case of Oil Lamps.

(4.) That the light produced is a soft and most steady one; that it never flickers, and the flame, though being equal in power of lighting to gas, can be regulated to any degree.

(5.) That every danger of fire is absolutely excluded, as the light will extinguish imme- diately, if by any accident the glass surrounding the burner should be broken.

(6.) That it will burn, even in the strongest wind, completely unaffected, thus being inva- luable for illuminations, lighting of gardens,

corridors, etc.

This Lamp is constructed for the present in three different sizes :-

Address:

A, small size. Height of complete Lamp, 14 inches; weight, about 5 pounds; for lighting rooms, cellars, storage houses, powder magazines (or similar places where explosives are kept), coaches, illuminations, gardens, mines, or any other industrial purpose. Price, £1.

Per Lamp, delivered free to any part of the world.

B, medium size. Serves all domestic purposes for lighting rooms, houses, etc. This Lamp is elegantly decorated, and has removable white ground Glass Globe.

-

Price, per Lamp (inclusive of Bronze Foot and Globe, richly and elegantly constructed), £2.- delivered free to any part of the world. C. Grand size for Parlor, Hall, Saloon, Public Building, &c. The Lamp gives a most brilliant and steady light, has large removable white Globe, decorated most tastefully, and the workmanship is both first-class and elegant. Price £4.10. -.

Foot of Lamp in either Bronze, Japanese Faience or Silver Oxide.

Any special size or design made to order. Estimates furnished.

All Lamps are ready for immediate use, and will be sent, securely packed in strong wooden box, with printed directions for use, a quantity of chemicals sufficient for several months' lighting, and one extra burner for size A, and two for sizes B and C. The necessary che- micals can be purchased in any Drug Store, in even the smallest village.

Every Lamp is accompanied by a written guarantee for one year, and will be exchanged, or money refunded, if the same should not give complete satisfaction.

On all orders for six Lamps and above, a discount of six per cent. will be allowed. No orders from abroad filled, unless accompanied by a remittance to cover the amount, or first- class references on a New York or Philadelphia house.

The best method of sending money is by draft on New York, which can be procured at any Banker, and everywhere, or enclose the amount in Bank notes, gold coins, or postage stamps of any country of the world.

All orders, the smallest, as well as the most important, will receive the same particular attention, and will be forwarded without delay.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 44.

The following Report of the Captain Superintendent of Police, for 1885, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 30th January, 1886.

FREDERICK STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

No. 12.

}

POLICE OFFICE, HONGKONG, 9th January, 1886. SIR,-I have the honour to forward, for the information of His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government, details of the Police Establishment, the list of Pensioners, and the Criminal Statistics for 1885.

2. The Criminal Statistics show that 6,775 cases were reported to the Police during 1885, being a decrease of 3,428 cases or 34.18 per cent. on the returns of 1884. In the subdivision of these cases into Serious Crimes (so-called) and Minor Offences, a decrease of 186 cases or 7.01 per cent. is found in Serious Crimes, and of 3,242 cases or 42.93 per cent. in Minor Offences.

3. During the past year two attempts at rioting were frustrated, and whilst only three murders occurred in the Colony (one in Lyndhurst Terrace and two in sampans off Tai Kok Tsui) yet there were several cases of manslaughter, and the reports of cutting and wounding were numerous; as also The at one time were the cases of people being hustled and robbed by a party of five or six men. assailants have gradually been arrested, and it is thought that this branch of crime will be checked for the present. The Police have also been successful in forestalling several intended raids on houses for the

purposes of robbery.

4. Another proof of combination was shown in the piratical seizure of the S. S. Greyhound on the High Seas and the murder of the Master. The pirates embarked as passengers, an old device of the Chinese, whose soldiers resorted to a similar practice in the war thirty years ago. The opening of telegraphic communication with Macao and Canton enabled me, as the circumstances led me to expect that the Pirates would go to the former place, to speedily inform the Local Authorities, and owing to their willing exertions and hearty co-operation two junks and ten of the pirates were subsequently seized.

5. The Detectives, both European and Chinese, attach great importance to the growing power of the Secret Triad Society. It is alleged that its influence is being largely used to screen criminal offenders and to make the procuring of evidence difficult. My recommendation made in letter No. 262 of the 24th August, 1885, that this Society should be_registered and brought under control is, I am informed, under consideration. In view of the recent attempts at riot, it is expedient that Guilds should be similarly registered. From the statements of the Detectives it would appear that all the lower criminal classes of the Colony have joined the Triad Society, and look to the heads of it for assistance when they are arrested. Hence it would appear probable that unless deterrent measures are promptly carried out, the Government will find that it has eventually to stamp out an Association whose ramifications certainly even now embrace nearly all the Hakka population, and are being strengthened by the enrolment of the thieves and rowdies of the lowest Chinese classes.

6. At the end of June a system was introduced under which numerous Chinese convicts were banished on the expiration of their terms of imprisonment. From papers that subsequently came before my notice, it would appear that the leading idea was that all non-British subjects who had been twice convicted of felony should be banished. As in several of the cases sent down to me for report it appeared that many of the prisoners had only been dealt with by the Magistrates, I pointed out that the powers given to the Supreme Court in Criminal Jurisdiction, of sentencing an offender after one conviction for felony to Penal Servitude for any term not exceeding 10 years, and after two summary convictions for any of the offences punishable summarily a term not exceeding 7 years Penal Servitude for offences under the Larceny Ordinance, had not in these cases been exercised. It appears that since the 24th June, 1885, 64 old offenders have been banished, of whom 18 have been arrested for returning

86

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT. GAZETTE OF 30TH JAN., 1886.

to the Colony, for each of whom the sum of fifty dollars has been paid. The maximum penalty for returning from banishment is one year's imprisonment with hard labour. In the face of the fact that so many deportees have returned, I must respectfully submit the question, whether, as was done in former years, the additional penalty of personal correction is not desirable. I estimate that this system will cost the Government about $3,000 for the first year. Whether it will be successful will probably depend on the experience of prisoners in Gaol. It is undoubted but that to many Chinese the Gaol with its ample diet, and its numerous provisions for the comforts of prisoners, has been a palpable improve- ments on their experiences outside. The present Superintendent has done a great deal towards the enforcement of salutary discipline, and the new regulations which come into force this year will probably strengthen his hands. But in the absence of any system of personal correction for offenders returning from banishment, it will become necessary, if the system is to have any success, that their gaol life should be more irksome than it has hitherto been.

7. The returns of gambling show 254 cases against 104 in 1884, and 86 in 1883. This amount would be larger, were not cases of Lotteries now dealt with by Summons instead of by Warrant on summary arrest; they therefore appear in the Magistrates' and not in the Police Returns. The smallness of the numbers in 1883 and 1884, is probably due to the Government Order 1071 of 1883 directing, "The simplest plan would be to let the Chinese alone and to let them gamble in peace, prosecuting only in those cases when the surrounding circumstances and notoriety left no doubt as to the nature of any particular house."

8. In connection with the riots just before my return to the Colony in 1884, I observe that it was considered expedient to seize the arms stored in various Chinese shops. The repeal by Ordinance 8 of 1882 of the unrepealed sections of Ordinance 9 of 1857 appears to have resulted in the probably unintended result of also repealing Ordinance 1 of 1855 which contained some valuable clauses con- cerning the sale of arms and the manufacture of explosives which might well have been enforced in cases of emergency. I have had during the past year to call attention to the want of any preventive measures against the storage of fire crackers and other dangerous commodities in buildings in the populated portion of the Colony.

9. There is a point which has arisen during the past year to which I desire to draw attention. In this Colony so few matters connected with Police work are dealt with otherwise than by Ordinances, that there is a want of that elasticity which can be obtained in England by the exercise of a power to pass by-laws. A notable instance arose in the constant necessity in a commercial Colony like this, of vessels desiring to discharge or take in cargo at night. For over forty years the local law has prohibited it, but, from precedents dating back in my own experience to nearly twenty years, this obvious necessity has been recognised by the Chief of Police granting permits when necessary. During the past year the applications, formerly made by well known firms connected with the principal lines of steamers, increased fifty per cent., and were becoming so numerous that it was clear that, unless some system was inaugurated, every firm that occasionally shipped goods would be in possession of a permit. Now each permit practically represents some six cargo boats. The wisdom of our pre- decessors recognised that in these waters, so liable to piratical attacks, it was expedient that there should at night time be a clear belt of water between the shipping and the water frontage. Inci- dentally I may point out that in one respect the status of this Colony is almost exceptional: it is one of the very few civilised places in the world where the trade of the Port is absolutely free from all Customs' dues. Hence in other harbours goods can only be landed at certain recognised points or under certain well known restrictions. Here cargo boats can come alongside any portion of the four miles frontage of the City. Being desirous of reducing the practice of the issue of Permits to a system, I, with the permission of the Government, inserted an advertisement in the newspapers requesting the expression of views, either for or against the landing or shipping of cargo at night ie., between 9 P.M. and 6 A.M.

The result for a Commercial Colony was somewhat surprising; not a single letter in favour of the practice was received, whilst objections to the course were sent in. It was therefore proposed to do away with the system of granting general permits available at all times, and to sub- stitute special permits to be granted when circumstances demanded that the dispatch of any particular vessel should be accelerated, and for this purpose every facility was given. When this was made known, the Chamber of Commerce for the first time took up the question and argued that, as Hongkong was a free port, the consignees of vessels were at liberty to land or discharge cargo as they pleased. The matter having been referred to the law officers, the opinion was that there was no authority of law for the granting of permits. An impression appeared to prevail that this implied that boats could discharge cargo at night. The result of a test case, that was taken before a Magistrate, whose decision was not appealed against, would seem to show that this prevalent impression is erroneous, and that the law distinctly prohibits boats from being within one hundred yards of the shore at night except at certain specified public or at all private wharves. Being fully aware that the prosperity of this Colony is solely dependent on its trade, I have taken on myself the responsibility of not carrying out the law to its full extent, but I trust that the matter may soon be placed on a sound basis, and that the two equally vital points of protecting the facilities of the trade of the Colony, and of protecting the City from sudden piratical raids, may meet with due consideration.

10. The same legal dictum of the absence of any authority of law equally applies to other matters on which the Chief of Police for the time being has heretofore endeavoured to assist the industries or

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 30TH JAN, 1886. 87

necessities of the Colony, viz.: the granting of permits (a.) for the temporary obstruction of a roadway by the transit of heavy goods, (b.) for allowing boats to lie near certain wharves at night for the accommodation of the officers and men of the various men-of-war in Harbour, (c.) for the removal by the Chinese of the bones of the dead to the mainland. In none of these cases is there any authority of law for granting permits, but it is clearly desirable that such power should exist.

11. Another matter wherein the practice of the Colony existing for many years has been upset, is the granting of permits for (a.) Chinese Religious Ceremonies, Theatricals, and (b.) Religious Processions and Festivals. The power to grant permits for the former (a.) was vested in the Governor or Registrar General by Ordinance 6 of 1857, but by the amended Ordinance 8 of 1858, the power was vested in the Governor only. The matters referred to in (b.) were by Ordinance 14 of 1845 in the hands of the Chief Magistrate of Police, and by proclamation this was changed to the Chief of the Police Force. This proclamation is held, and obviously rightly so, to be ultra vires. Now applica- tions are sent to the Registrar General who endorses his recommendation or otherwise, then to the Colonial Secretary, who sends them to the Surveyor General as to structural matters, and to the Magistrates, (who are not in a position to obtain information), for a report. The document is then returned to the Colonial Secretary who submits it for the Governor's decision; he again receives it and sends the permit to the Registrar General, who returns the application to the Colonial Secretary, who sends notice to me as Head of the Police Force, and in numerous cases I receive the document after the expiry of the date on which the event took place. I must submit that it is time a less cumbrous process was adopted, and probably the simplest course would be for the Chief of Police to deal with such matters when outside and the Registrar General when inside buildings, subject always to the decision of the 'Surveyor General on structural matters. The right of appeal to the Governor being paramount, no special allusion need be made to it. The late Mr. MAY, when Chief of Police, gave this opinion on the subject of Licences for Religious or Theatrical entertainments. "I am of opinion that the granting of such permission should be in the hands of the executive Police. This power was by Ordinance 14 of 1845 vested in the hands of the Chief Magistrate, but practically it devolved upon the Superintendent of Police, because the Chief Magistrate invariably made reference to that Officer. As a fact there are few Religious entertainments, although Religion is often advanced as a plea; firing off crackers, musical parties, &c., are all called "Chin-chin joss," but these bear as much relation to the religion of the Chinese as the institution of "Greenwich Fair" does to the religion of the inhabitants of London. The proper person to judge of the policy of granting or recom- mending such indulgence, or minor invasions of the letter of the law, must be the Officer having the responsibility of preventing disorder and annoyance to the public and ready power of preventing the abuse of the indulgence if granted."

12. The various Police Stations suffered a great deal from the lowness of the Colonial Funds. The guard house at lunghom has however been rebuilt and the out houses are a vast improvement from a sanitary point of view to those attached to most of the Stations. Stanley Station, having, through want of money, been for nearly two years unavailable, was in July last handed back to the Police, but the summer rains soon showed the upper floor to be comparatively uninhabitable from leakage. Subsequent defects have been developed, which plainly show that the building of the upper story many years ago was not carried out efficiently, with the probable result that it must be taken down and rebuilt before the building is really habitable. At the Water Police Basin, davits and a flight of steps are still wanting, which want contributes to the deterioration of the boats, and the endangering of the men when embarking. The scarcity of married quarters is greatly felt, and the high rates of rent now charged render it difficult for men to obtain rooms with the allowance granted by Government. The health of the Water Police has improved since the removal of the men from the Hulk to the Station at Kaulung Point, but Whitfield Station has from the number of cases off ever proved very unhealthy to the occupants. The drains are now being thoroughly repaired and the undergrowth around cut away.

If after this no improvement is shown, the cause must be attributable either to the recent earth cutting in connection with the neighbouring fort, or to the rapid silting up of the foreshore. 13. The heavy fall in the value of the dollar, which is now quoted at 3/33, is a matter which must tend to the increase of the cost of the maintenance of the Police Force. It is beyond dispute that the cost of all commodities has considerably increased.

14. I am happy to be able to report that the general conduct of the Force, as witnessed by the diminished amount of fines and punishments inflicted during the year for breaches of descipline, has been very satisfactory; and that I have received the faithful support of the officers and men in the discharge of their respective duties under circumstances that on more than one occasion might have tended to dishearten them.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable FREDERICK STEWART, LL.D.,

W. M. DEANE, Captain Superintendent of Police.

Acting Colonial Secretary, &C.,

VOTE OF MONEY REFERRED TO THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.-Read the following Minute by His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government:-

C.S.O.

2985 of 1885.

W. H. MARSH.

The Officer Administering the Government recommends the Council to re-vote the sum of $5,000 which was not expended last year on the re-construction of Pedder's Wharf.

The Surveyor General has recommended that the pier should be constructed of Aranga wood which is much more durable than the ordinary hard wood. This would raise the original estimate from $10,000 to $14,300. It therefore becomes necessary to provide the additional sum of $4,300 which, with the $5,000 in this year's estimates, and the $5,000 to be re-voted, will meet the revised estimate of the cost of the pier.

The Officer Administering the Government recommends the Council to vote this additional sum of $4,300.

Government House, Hongkong, 25th January, 1886.

The Acting Colonial Secretary moved that this Minute be referred to the Finance Committee. The Colonial Treasurer seconded.

Question-put and passed.

VINCE Electricity has been applied for light-

been directed to construct a lamp for general domestic use. The reason why this problem has till now not been solved, is that none of the

inventors could rid themselves of the idea of gas lighting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some central place, or by large machinery, instead of first laying down the principle that a Lamp which should ever become generally useful and popular, must be portable, like an Oil Lamp, and contain the generator of Electricity in itself, i. e., in the foot of the Lamp.

The Norman Electric Light Co. has at last succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of Electric Lighting, and there is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a complete revolution in all branches of light- ing.

Our Electric Lamp, needs neither Machi- nery, Conductors, nor any expensive outlay, and is neither complicated, nor disagreable in manipulation; all that is necessary is to refill it every four or five days with acid. The cost of lighting will be as cheap as gas (3 cents per hour), and it has before the latter the im- mense advantage of neither producing heat, smoke nor carbonic acid, owing to which the air is not impured, and remains at the same degree of temperature. It is further, absolutely inodorous, and does not need to be kindled by match, or otherwise, but simply by turning the key, thus avoiding all danger of fire, ex- plosion or suffocation, as in the case of gas, if the key is left open; and it must be conceded that this advantage alone is invaluable. It is further preferable to any known kind of light- ing for the following reasons:

(1.) Its manipulation is so simple that any child can keep it in order.

(2.) That the Lamp is portable, and can be removed like any Oil Lamp, from one place to another.

(3.) That it neither requires the disagreeable fixing of the wick, or the cleaning of the cylinder, as in the case of Oil Lamps.

(4.) That the light produced is a soft and most steady one; that it never flickers, and the flame, though being equal in power of lighting to gas, can be regulated to any degree.

(5.) That every danger of fire is absolutely excluded, as the light will extinguish imme- diately, if by any accident the glass surrounding the burner should be broken.

(6.) That it will barn, even in the strongest wind, completely unaffected, thus being inva- luable for illuminations, lighting of gardens, corridors, etc.

This Lamp is constructed for the present in three different sizes:-

Address:

1, small size. Height of complete Lamp, 14 inches; weight, about 5 pounds; for lighting rooms, cellars, storage houses, powder magazines (or similar places where explosives are kept), coaches, illuminations, gardens, mines, or any other industrial purpose. Price, £1.- -.

Per Lamp, delivered free to any part of the world.

B. medium size. Serves all domestic purposes for lighting rooms, houses, etc. This Lamp is elegantly decorated, and has removable white ground Glass Globe.

Price, per Lamp (inclusive of Bronze Foot and Globe, richly and elegantly constructed), £2. delivered free to any part of the world.

C. Grand size for Parlor, Hall, Saloon, Public Building, &c. The Lamp gives a most brilliant and steady light, has large removable white Globe, decorated most tastefully, and the workmanship is both first-class and elegant. Price £4.10.

Foot of Lamp in either Bronze, Japanese, Faience or Silver Oxide.

Any special size or design made to order. Estimates furnished.

All Lamps are ready for immediate use, and will be sent, securely packed in strong wooden box, with printed directions for use, a quantity of chemicals sufficient for several months' lighting, and one extra burner for size A, aud two for sizes B and C. The necessary che- micals can be purchased in any Drug Store, in even the smallest village.

Every Lamp is accompanied by a written guarantee for one year, and will be exchanged, or money refunded, if the same should not give complete satisfaction.

On all orders for six Lamps and above, a discount of six per cent. will be allowed. No orders from abroad filled, unless accompanied by a remittance to cover the amount, or first- class references on a New York or Philadelphia house.

The best method of sending money is by draft on New York, which can be procured at any Banker, and everywhere, or enclose the amount in Bank notes, gold coins, or postage stamps of any country of the world.

All orders, the smallest, as well as the most important, will receive the same particular attention, and will be forwarded without delay.

Our Electric Lamps are protected by law, and all imitations and infringements will be prosecuted.

Agents, Salesmen on Commission, and Consignees for our Lamps, wanted everywhere. No special knowledge or capital required.

A fortune to be made by active. persons.

VOTE OF MONEY REFERRED TO THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.-Read the following Minute by His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government:-

C.S.O. 66 of 1886.

W. H. MARSH.

The Officer Administering the Government lays before the Council an application which he bas received from the Chairman of the Commission appointed by Sir GEORGE BOWEN in January, 1885, to arrange for the proper representation of Hongkong at the Colonial and Indian Exhi- bition to be held in London this year. The Chairman on behalf of the Commission asks for a further grant by Government of £2,000 to meet the expenditure on account of the exhibits forwarded by this Colony, the sum of £500 which was voted by this Council on 4th November, last, having proved wholly inadequate for that object.

Part of the exhibits have already gone forward, and the remainder are nearly ready to be shipped. His Excellency recommends the Council to vote the further sum now asked for, by the Commission, to enable the Colony to be worthily represented at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition.

THE LATEST AMERICAN INVENTION.

THE VICTORY OF ELECTRICITY.

SINC

INCE Electricity has been applied for light- ing purposes, all efforts of inventors have been directed to construct a lamp for general domestic use. The reason why this problem has till now not been solved, is that none of the inventors could rid themselves of the idea of gas lighting, and that all have adhered to the system of producing the Electricity in some central place, or by large machinery, instead of first laying down the principle that a Lamp which should ever become generally useful and popular, must be portable, like an Oil Lamp, and contain the generator of Electricity in itself, i. e., in the foot of the Lamp.

The Norman Electric Light Co. has at last succeeded in completely realizing this ideal of Electric Lighting, and there is no doubt that this most important invention will bring about a complete revolution in all branches of light- ing.

Our Electric Lamp, needs neither Machi- nery, Conductors, nor any expensive outlay, and is neither complicated, nor disagreable in manipulation; all that is necessary is to refill it every four or five days with acid. The cost of lighting will be as cheap as gas (2 cents per hour), and it has before the latter the im- mense advantage of neither producing heat, smoke nor carbonic acid, owing to which the air is not impured, and remains at the same degree of temperature. It is further, absolutely inodorous, and does not need to be kindled by match, or otherwise, but simply by turning the key, thus avoiding all danger of fire, ex- plosion or suffocation, as in the case of gas, if the key is left open; and it must be conceded that this advantage alone is invaluable. It is further preferable to any known kind of light- ing for the following reasons:

(1.) Its manipulation is so simple that any child can keep it in order.

(2.) That the Lamp is portable, and can be removed like any Oil Lamp, from one place to another.

(3.) That it neither requires the disagreeable fixing of the wick, or the cleaning of the cylinder, as in the case of Oil Lamps.

(4.) That the light produced is a soft and most steady one; that it never flickers, and the flame, though being equal in power of lighting to gas, can be regulated to any degree.

(5.) That every danger of fire is absolutely excluded, as the light will extinguish imme- diately, if by any accident the glass surrounding the burner should be broken.

(6.) That it will burn, even in the strongest wind, completely unaffected, thus being inva-

luable for illuminations, lighting of gardens,

corridors, etc.

This Lamp is constructed for the present in three different sizes:-

Address:

A, small size. Height of complete Lamp, 14 inches; weight, about 5 pounds; for lighting rooms, cellars, storage houses, powder magazines (or similar places where explosives are kept), coaches, illuminations, gardens, mines, or any other industrial purpose. Price, £1.

Per Lamp, delivered free to any part of the world.

--

B, medium size. Serves all domestic purposes for lighting rooms, houses, etc. This Lamp is elegantly decorated, and has removable white ground Glass Globe.

Price, per Lamp (inclusive of Bronze Foot and Globe, richly and elegantly constructed), £2. delivered free to any part of the world.

C. Grand size for Parlor, Hall, Saloon, Public Building, &c. The Lamp gives a most brilliant and steady light, has large removable white Globe, decorated most tastefully, and the workmanship is both first-class and elegant.. Price £4.10. -.

Foot of Lamp in either Bronze, Japanese, Faience or Silver Oxide.

Any special size or design made to order. Estimates furnished.

All Lamps are ready for immediate use, and will be sent, securely packed in strong wooden box, with printed directions for use, a quantity of chemicals sufficient for several months* lighting, and one extra burner for size A, and two for sizes B and C. The necessary che- micals can be purchased in any Drug Store, in even the smallest village.

Every Lamp is accompanied by a written guarantee for one year, and will be exchanged, or money refunded, if the same should not give complete satisfaction.

On all orders for six Lamps and above, a discount of six per cent. will be allowed. No orders from abroad filled, unless accompanied by a remittance to cover the amount, or first- class references on a New York or Philadelphia house.

The best method of sending money is by draft on New York, which can be procured at any Banker, and everywhere, or enclose the amount in Bank notes, gold coins, or postage stamps of any country of the world.

All orders, the smallest, as well as the most attention, and will be forwarded without delay. important, will receive the same particular

law, and all imitations and infringements will Our Electric Lamps are protected by

be prosecuted.

:

Agents, Salesmen on Commission, and Consignees for our Lamps, wanted everywhere. No special knowledge or capital required.

A fortune to be made by active persons.

Acting Colonial Secretary.

FINDING.

We find that the British Steam-ship Douglas, Official No. 84,357 of Hongkong, MATTHEW YOUNG, Master, whose Certificate of Competency is No. 32,637 of London, left Amoy at about 5.30 P.M. on the 10th February last, bound for Swatow.

That at the time of sailing, the Douglas was in light trim only, having on board a small quantity f cargo.

That there were on board besides the Crew, consisting of Europeans, Chinese and Malays (64 all told) and 5 European passengers, several Chinese passengers, the exact number of whom, we have been unable to determine.

That after leaving Amoy, safe and proper courses were steered, until the High Lamock Light was abeam.

T

That at about 2.45 A.M., on the 11th February, the ship stranded on the White Rocks, and subsequently became a total wreck, and that this was unfortunately attended with a deplorable loss of life.

That the remaining Crew and passengers were rescued by the British Steam-ship Haiphong, and taken to Swatow.

We are of opinion that the Master, seeing the state of the weather at the time, and not having verified his position, would have displayed more caution in not attempting to pass between the High Lamock and the White Rocks, and that, having decided to steer between these, he under-estimated his distance off the High Lamock, and a safe and proper course was not subsequently adopted.

That after the stranding of the vessel, everything was done by the Captain and Officers with a view to the saving of life, and that, had the Captain's advice been followed by all, the unfortunate loss of life would probably not have ensued.

We have also examined the testimonials laid before us by the Master.

After careful deliberation, we consider that the Master is to blame, and we direct that his Certifi- cate be suspended for a period of 4 months from this date.

Given under our hands at Hongkong, this 20th day of February, 1886.

Approved,

W. H. MARSH,

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 Minutes of the last Meeting, held on the 10th instant, were read and confirmed.

VOTES REFERRED TO THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.-Read the following Minutes by His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government:-

W. H. MARSH.

(1.) The Officer Administering the Government lays before the Council a despatch which he has just received from the Secretary of State for the Colonies on the subject of the defences of Hongkong.

It will be remembered that the original proposals sanctioned by the War Office embraced works the estimated cost of which was £55,625, whilst the corresponding armament was to cost only £37,500.

It was stated in the despatch of Lord DERBY of the 17th September, 1884, which was laid before the Council, that Her Majesty's Government had arrived at the decision that the Colony of Hongkong should defray only the cost of the necessary works, the Imperial Government contributing the armament. The Council was accordingly asked by Sir GEORGE BOWEN, on the 10th December, 1884, to vote the sum of £55,625 required for the construction of these works.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 6TH MARCH, 1886.

Before agreeing to vote the sum required for the construction of the works there was considerable discussion in the Finance Committee, owing to an impression that the armament which was to be sent out was altogether inadequate, and the vote was passed with the understanding "that the armament to be provided by the Imperial Government would be of the best and latest pattern of breech-loading ordnance and capable of resisting attacks by the heaviest modern ironclads."

Sir GEORGE BOWEN did not fail to represent strongly on several occasions the wish. of the community that Hongkong should be properly defended, and Generals SArgent and CAMERON have supported his recommandations with all the weight of their long professional experience.

The result of these recommendations has been that the scheme of defence has been very carefully re-considered. Instead of three new works and remounting guns in existing works, the new scheme of defence includes four new works and three new sites for single heavy guns, and, whilst omitting the works originally proposed at Quarry Bay, it substitutes a complete defence of the Ly-ee Mun Channel. The weight and power of the guns have been so greatly increased that much more massive and costly foundations and emplacements have to be provided for them. An idea of the difference in the now proposed from those originally contemplated may be gathered from the revised estimate of cost of the armaments, which, instead of being £37,500, will now amount to £118,500.

guns

In June, 1885, the Major-General Commanding represented to the Governor the necessity of a large increase in the amount contributed by the Colony, in order to meet the cost of the improved and extended works of defence, and, in accordance with the Colonial Regulations, the Governor referred the question to the Secretary of State before asking the Council to vote the necessary sum. The Despatch now laid before the Council conveys the sanction of Her Majesty's Government to the application for such vote. It will be seen from this Despatch and its enclosure that the revised estimate of the cost of constructing the Defence Works is £116,000 instead of £55,625.

The Secretary of State for the Colonies has no doubt that the Council will loyally consent to vote the necessary amount for completing the Defences of Hongkong in an efficient manner. The Officer Administering the Government therefore asks the Council to vote the additional sum of £60,375. It appears doubtful whether any part will be spent before 1887, but it is necessary that a vote should be passed to enable the Royal Engineers' Department to enter into contracts for the execution of the works.

(2.) The Officer Administering the Government recommends the Council to re-vote the following

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

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 13th March, 1886.

FREDERICK STEWART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

FINDING.

We find that the British Steam-ship Thames, Official Number 85,898 of Glasgow; WILLIAM ARTHUR SEATON, Master, whose Certificate of Competency is No. 14,245, left Hongkong harbour at about 4.15 P.M. on the 2nd March, bound for London via Colombo and Bombay, having on board the mails for Europe.

That on the day of sailing, the weather was misty with banks of fog rolling in from the Eastward, but with intervals of fairly clear weather, during one of which, the steamer proceeded on her voyage.

That soon after leaving the buoy, the fog again came down, but the Master having had an opportunity of shaping a Course for the Lyeemoon Pass, proceeded on this Course, going at a moderate speed, and taking precautions.

That at about 4.55 P.M., land ahead was reported by the "look out," and that shortly after this, the Thames struck on the South West point of the Lyeemoon Pass, damaging her bow, and causing her to make considerable quantity of water.

That the vessel did not remain fixed, but came off almost immediately.

That the necessary temporary repairs being made, the ship proceeded into the Aberdeen dock. We find that the Master was justified in commencing the voyage on the day in question, and that he appears to have navigated his vessel in a seamanlike manner, and that when the casualty was inevit- able, to have done every thing in his power to avert it.

That the casualty appears to have been brought about through the ship, when going at a moder- ate rate of speed, being set to the Southward by the tide flowing through the Lyeemoon Pass, and sweeping towards Shau-ki-wan Bay.

That proper discipline appears to have been maintained, and that all necessary precautions were taken after the casualty.

That the Court sees no ground for attributing any blame to the Master, and his Certificate is therefore returned to him.

Given under our hands at Hongkong, this 10th day of March, 1886.

R. MURRAY RUMSEY, Ret. Com., R.N., and

President of Court.

GEORGE S. KEIGWIN, Navigating Lieutenant, R.N. T. S. GARDNER, Master British Steamer "Japan."

SAML. ASHTON, Master British Steamer "Formosa."

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 licence shall be for six months certain, and shall not be discontinued at any time within the term of six months under the plea that the business is not profitable, or that the shop has been closed, nor on any other pretext; should the sub-licensee during the said term commit a breach of any of the conditions of the Opium Ordinance, 1884, or of any of these conditions whereby the Opium Farmers suffer loss or damage, the Opium Farmers shall be at liberty to revoke the licence without refunding any moneys paid to them on account thereof, and the same shall thereon become forfeited, and the Opium Farmers shall claim from the said sub-licensee or his surety the remaining monthly fees for the remainder of the said term.

4.-Every monthly fee must be paid between the 1st and 5th day of each month, and in case of the Sub-licensee making default in any such payment, the said Opium Farmers shall be entitled to withdraw the said Licence, and the Sub-licensee shall make good all losses and expenses incurred by reason of such default.

Should he be detected in such illegal conduct, all prepared opium found in the Sub-licensee's premises shall be handed over to the Opium Farmers.

6.-The Opium Farmers shall always have on hand a stock of prepared opium for sale, so that the Sub-licensee selling or retailing prepared opium on his premises can buy his prepared opium from them; but the Sub-licensee must daily report to the Opium Farmers the quantity sold, which must be entered in his book, stating the name of the shop and the name of the purchaser, in order that a check may be kept of the quantity sold and the quantity on hand from day to day; in case of his failing to deliver such statement, or in the event of the prepared opium being found not to tally with his book, all the prepared opium found on the premises of the Sub-licensee shall be forfeited and handed over to the Opium Farmers.

7.-If the Sub-licensee wishes to remove his business to another house, he must inform the Opium Farmers, and if the intended house be found not to interfere with the business of any other Sub-licensee the removal shall be allowed; no false excuse for removing such business, such as that the landlord has given notice to quit, or that he has raised the rent, shall be allowed. In case fire or Eany unusual circumstances should occur in the vicinity, rendering it impossible to carry on the business, the Sub-licensee shall be allowed to remove to other premises in the neighbourhood, but he shall not in that case be at liberty to stop his business without paying the remaining monthly fees. for the remainder of his term.

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 List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

ABSENT:

The Honourable the Attorney General, (EDWARD LOUGHLIN O'MALLEY,) on leave.

The Council met pursuant to adjournment.

The Minutes of the last Meeting, held on the 10th instant, were read and confirmed.

VOTE OF MONEY REFERRED TO THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.-Read the following Minute by His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government:-

W. H. MARSH.

The Officer Administering the Government recommends the Council to vote the following sum, viz.:-$450 to enable the Sanitary Board to carry out the special cleansing of tenements within the city.

The Board, with the approval of the Government, has decided that the Chinese community should be invited to give their dwellings a thorough special cleansing three times a year, such cleansings to take place as near to the 1st February, 1st June, and 1st October, as their festivals will permit; the Government rendering assistance in the way of supplying additional water, and providing additional facilities for the removal of refuse.

The Board estimate that each of these cleansings will cost $150, and the sum now recommended is to enable the Board to defray the expenses incurred under this heading during 1886.

During the last special cleansing, 180 tons above the average daily quantity of refuse were removed in this way.

Government House, Hongkong, 16th March, 1886.

The Acting Colonial Secretary moved that this vote be referred to the Finance Committee. The Colonial Treasurer seconded.

Question-put and passed.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH MARCH, 1886.

MINUTE.-INVASION OF TERRITORIAL RIGHTS OF THE COLONY.-Read the following Minute by His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government:-

W. H. MARSH.

The Officer Administering the Government informs the Council that he has received a communication from Her Majesty's Charge d'Affaires at Peking stating that he had made strong representations to the Ministers of the Tsungli Yamen on the unwarrantable action of the Chinese Officials in seizing a Chinese subject accused of piracy who had taken refuge in this Colony.

The Ministers have expressed their regret for what had occurred, and assured Her Majesty's Charge d'Affaires that the Governor-General of Fuhkien would be directed to make suitable excuses to the Hongkong Government, and that instructions would be sent to the High Local Officials that Hongkong was British Territory, and that any invasion of its rights or territory must be very carefully guarded against in future.

Her Majesty's Charge d'Affaires expresses the belief that the representations which he has made will effectually put a stop to such occurrences in future.

The British Consul at Foochow was some time ago informed by the Governor-General of Fuhkien that the Naval Officer in charge of the Ngai San had for his irregular conduct at. Hongkong been deprived of his command and had had his button taken from him.

The status of Chinese Cruisers and their interference with the Junk trade of Hongkong will, it is hoped, be finally settled by the Commission to be appointed before long for the con- sideration of this question under the 7th Article of the 3rd Section of the Chefoo Convention.

Government House, Hongkong, 15th March, 1886.

PAPERS.-The Acting Colonial Secretary, by direction of His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government, laid on the table the following papers :-

(a.) Despatch respecting the postponement of the proposed Loan. (No. 14.)

(b.) Despatch respecting the new Heavy Guns for Defensive purposes. (No. 15.)

(c.) Correspondence respecting Quarantine Regulations. (No. 16.)

VOTE OF MONEY PASSED BY THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.-The Acting Colonial Secretary read the following report of the Finance Committee:-

(Finance Committee, 12th March, 1886.)

Additional vote of £60,375 for Defences.

The Committee unanimously recommend the payment of the additional sum of £60,375 now asked for, but they do so on the distinct understanding that this vote shall be final for the military and defensive purposes of the Colony.

To pay this sum and complete the essential public works in progress, the Colony must borrow; and the result will be, that interest and the provision of a sinking fund will so cripple the resources of the Colony, that urgently needed sanitary works must, for the present, be left in abeyance. The Colony, being merely a depot, without natural products, is unable to increase its revenue to any appreciable extent, and it will be impossible for any further contribution to be made for military purposes.

The Committee next proceed to the consideration of the means to be devised for meeting the interest and the sinking fund in connection with the Loan which must be raised.

The Committee unanimously consider that the best means of doing so would chiefly be by an increase of Stamp Dnty.

The Acting Colonial Secretary added that the Committee afterwards proceeded to consider the Loan Bill, the result of which will be brought up later, as His Excellency the Officer Administering the Government was in communication with the Secretary of State for the Colonies on the subject.

The Honourable W. KESWICK moved that, as the subject treated in the above report was of vast importance to the Colony, the consideration of the report should be postponed to this day week.

The Honourable P. RYRIE seconded.

Question-put and passed.

THE RELIGIOUS CEREMONIES AND FESTIVALS BILL.-REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE.-The Honourable W. KESWICK, Chairman of the Special Committee appointed to consider this Bill, presented the report of the Committee in the form of a revised Bill, and gave notice that when the Council went into Committee on the Bill he would move the addition of a clause.

QUESTION.-The Honourable W. KESWICK, pursuant to notice, asked the following question:-

When will the Lazaretto on Stone Cutters' Island be completed, and pending its con- struction, what provision will there be ready to meet any outbreak of infectious or contagious diseases?

The Surveyor General replied that the permanent buildings for the Lazaretto were contracted to be ready on the 1st of July next; and that, pending the completion of the permanent buildings, suitable accommodation was being provided for the reception of the sick, should occasion require it, in temporary and provisional matsheds.

WITHDRAWAL OF THE ECCLESIASTICAL GRANT.-The Honourable T. JACKSON gave notice that at the next meeting he would move the following resolutions, and introduce a Cathedral Bill:-

1. That the Secretary of State for the Colonies be invited to reconsider the decision which has been arrived at as to the withdrawal of ecclesiastical grants in this Colony, with a view to the continuance of such grants, as in Singapore and in Mauritius.

2.-That the only expenditure which could be retrenched under the instructions received is a small salary, nominally of £800, but really of £640, paid to the Colonial Chaplain, and representing little more than remuneration for the necessary services of burying the dead, attendance at the gaol, at hospitals, &c.

3.-That if this salary be withdrawn, the Colony will have to pay nearly if not quite as much in allowances for these services, thus substituting a precarious and unsatisfactory arrangement for one which works to the satisfaction of all concerned.

4. That the instructions to disestablish the Church on the first opportunity were not called for by any public demand, and that no public feeling exists in the Colony on the subject except such as is adverse to the course proposed.

?

5.-That the policy of disestablishment, still far from being generally accepted at home, has been, as far as the information of this Council goes, distasteful to every Colony on which it has been imposed; that it has been reversed in two Colonies, and in at least one more continues to be an offence and a public grievance to the Community.

6. That a doubtful policy of this kind should not be, in ignorance of many of the essential circumstances of the case, needlessly forced upon an unwilling community which, administering its own revenue, is more interested in guarding against the misappropriation of that revenue than any external authority can be.

BILLS READ A SECOND TIME.-On the motion of the Acting Attorney General, seconded by the Acting Colonial Secretary, the following Bills were read a second time:

(a.) A Bill entitled An Ordinance to amend the Law relating to Vagrants.

(b.) A Bill entitled An Ordinance to amend the Law as to Sales of Land by Public Auction. (c.) A Bill entitled An Ordinance for the Relief of Widows and Children of Intestates where

the personal estate is of small value.

The Acting Attorney General gave notice that at the next meeting of Council he would move that the Council go into Committee on these Bills.

POSTPONEMENT OF THE OTHER ORDERS OF THE DAY.-The Acting Attorney General moved that the other Orders of the Day be postponed.

Adjournment.-The Council then adjourned to Wednesday, the 24th instant, at 4 P.M.

Read and confirmed, this 24th day of March, 1886.
