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 Council met pursuant to notice.

The Minutes of the last Meeting, held on the 2nd instant, were read and confirmed. MESSAGE-Reade following Message from His Excellency the Governor :-

G. WILLIAM DES VEUX.

The Governor, in accordance with the intimation made to the Legislative Council last year, has had under consideration the Report of the Commission which was appointed to enquire respecting the interpretation in the Courts and other Government Departments; and as the result of further enquiries and much discussion of the subject, he is now prepared with definite recommendations, which, if adopted, will he hopes promote a more general knowledge of Chinese in the Public Service and bring about a substantial improvement in its interpreting capacity.'

It should however be mentioned in the first instance that the existing state of things. proved on investigation to be scarcely as defective as might be supposed from the report of the Commission. The Judges and Magistrates (from whom no information was sought or obtained) did not altogether confirm the view taken by the Commissioners in paragraph 7 of their report, and have furnished evidence showing that in respect of Hakka, the most important of the dialects specifically mentioned, the Colony is fairly well served. And even as regards the dialects of Swatow and Amoy the Governor, as the result of his enquiries, is not disposed to think that there is so wide a gap between present deficiency and what is practically obtainable as a superficial consideration of the subject is apt to indicate.

It is to be borne in mind that ideal perfection in interpretation is quite impracticable of attainment even when the two languages are far more akin than English and any dialect of Chinese. In the quick translation of any one language into any other the success of cross- examination, is, and must be, frequently affected by the failure to distinguish delicate shades

18

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH JANUARY, 1889.

of meaning; and in view of the fact that there are used by witnesses here a great number dialects of a language so utterly unlike English as is that of China, it is quite hopeless to expect the attainment of a condition under which the Courts would be altogether free of difficulty and embarrassment in respect of interpretation.

Of the Hakka dialect alone which is mentioned in the report as one single dialect there are, the Governor is informed, several varieties, each sufficiently distinct from the rest to render a good interpreter of any one very possibly a bad interpreter of any other: and it is obvious that under such circumstances to secure for the Courts the command of satisfactory interpretation in all cases is a work of no ordinary difficulty, which at the best can only be accomplished approximately.

It would be evidently inexpedient to attempt the provision of all the necessary capacity and qualifications in a class of officers employed on no other duty. For that would not only involve the very great expense of a large Department of Interpreters and of students (many of whom would probably prove ineligible for office after large sums had been spent on their training) but it would mean a body of officers, for the most part required for service only very occasionally, and whose idleness,, as regards public work, in the intervals would be perhaps injurious to themselves, and certainly to the Government service generally.

A

For this reason it seems desirable to depend on regular interpreters only in respect of the two or three dialects in most common use; and as regards the less common dialects or varieties of dialects to provide the requisite capacity among other Public Officers whose services as interpreters would be called for only when actually required.

Partly with this object therefore, and also to promote improvement in all interpretation, as well as to obtain greater efficiency, through improved knowledge of Chinese, in other departments than the Judicial, the Governor has drafted certain regulations (I) which are now laid on the table and offerred for consideration, as appearing likely to secure what is required within reasonable limits of expense, and under other conditions least open to objection. With further view to the same objects, the Governor has deemed as well worthy of the test of experiment the suggestion of the Commissioners as to the encouragement of the acquisition of Chinese among the younger members of the non-Chinese, community; and some proposals for the purpose in the form of regulations (II) are also offered for consideration.

The case of the Police requires somewhat different treatment. Their tenure of office for a short fixed period renders unsuitable a reward in the shape of a lump sum; and it is moreover expedient in their case that a somewhat lower standard of knowledge of Chinese than is required from other Public Servants should not go without reward. For these and other reasons, after consultation with the Captain Superintendent and the Board of Examiners, the Governor has deemed it well to retain the principle of the existing system of rewards for acquisition of Chinese, increasing however the sums paid per mensem for the lower standards of knowledge, and adding a third standard, the attainment of which will carry a reward quite equal to that offered to the rest of the service. In another paper (III) now laid on the table will be found the scale of premiums which it is proposed to offer.

Though these various regulations which are suggested for adoption will probably be found to require amendment after experience has been gained of their working, the Governor hopes that they will at least bring about substantial improvement he condition of things which was the subject of the Commissioners' enquiry, and will thus tend to the greater efficiency of the Public Service.

By Command,

Government House, Hongkong, 10th January, 1889.

FREDERICK STEWART, Colonial Secretary.

I.

In C.S.O. 1407

Proposed Regulations for Public Officers, other than Members of the Police Force, for the encouragement of proficiency in the Chinese language.

I.

Public Officers who pass an examination, to the satisfaction of the Examiners, in the Chinese language, of the Cantonese or Hakka dialect, or any other dialect to be approved by the Governor, will receive an allowance according to the following scale :-

For colloquial and written Chinese, For colloquial only,

Officers in receipt of salaries under $200 per month.

$400 300

Officers with salaries over $200 a month.

$600

450

This regulation to apply only in respect of dialects which Officers have hitherto not professed to understand, or in which they have hitherto not been employed to interpret.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH JANUARY, 1889.

II.

19

The allowance will be granted to Cadets. who acquire proficiency in other dialects than those in which they have passed.

III.

On receipt of an allowance under these regulations, an Officer will be required to give security for the re-payment of the whole sum, or such proportion of it as may be fixed by the Governor, in the event of the Officer leaving the service of the Colony within three years from the time of receipt.

IV.

The allowance for a Chinese Teacher will be continued to Officers, who have passed their Examinations, for a period not exceeding three years, on their satisfying the Board of Examiners at the end of each year, that they are profiting by the teaching.

II.

In C.S.O. 1407

Proposal for the encouragement of the acquisition of the Chinese language among residents of the Colony, with a view to secure efficient interpretation in the Courts of Justice and Public Offices.

I.

The Governor to appoint, from residents in the Colony under 16

                         years of age, who have shown an aptitude for acquiring the Chinese language, and who have distinguished themselves in the Examination for the Colonial scholarship or other similar competition three student Interpreters, each to be attached to such department of the Public Service as to the Governor may seem fit.

II.

The salary of the student Interpreters will be 40 Dollars a month, payable however subject to a certificate of the Examiners after every period of six months, to the effect that satisfactory progress is being made in knowledge of the Chinese language, and in the facility of interpreting it into English and vice versa.

III.

Any student Interpreter who at the end of three years from his appointment as such shall pass asatisfactory examination in the Chinese language, and whose conduct in other respects shall have earned approval, will be appointed to an office with a salary of not less than 100 Dollars a month if, or as soon as, he is of the age of 18 years.

IV.

Every student Interpreter on his appointment shall furnish security for the repayment of a sum not exceeding half of the whole sum received by him by way of salary, in the event of his leaving the service of the Colony before the expiration of 6 years from the time of his appointment.

III.

In C.S.O. 1407

Proposed Regulations for Members of the Police Force for the encouragement of proficiency in the Chinese language.

I.

??

Instead of the four certificates hitherto granted, two certificates shall be granted in ordinary cases, with a third one to be awarded only in cases of exceptional knowledge.

II.

Instead of the allowances of $2.50 and $1 a month now given to European and Indian Constables respectively who hold a certificate from the Board of Examiners, the following scale of remuneration shall be adopted, viz. :-

European Constables,

Indian Constables,......

1st Certificate. $2.50 1.00

2nd Certificate.

$5.00

3.00

3rd Certificate. $10.00

5.00

such remuneration to be drawn only so long as the receiver remains in the Police Force.

20

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH JANUARY, 1889.

III.

For the first certificate, a knowledge of colloquial shall be required.

For the second certificate, a higher standard of colloquial will be necessary, as well as acquaintance with a book in Colloquial to be approved of by the Board: and in the case of the third certificate an acquaintance with the written Chinese character will be necessary, as well as an advanced knowledge of Colloquial.

IV.

In no case shall the third certificate be granted without the sanction of His Excellency the Governor, upon the recommendation of the Board.

V.

Members of the Police Force already holding certificates under the old scheme, shall be allowed to continue drawing their present allowances, but will be at liberty to offer themselves for examination for the second and third certificates under the new scheme, and shall be entitled, on passing, to the higher allowances.

it shall be lawful for the Governor in Council to revoke or vary such licence and to order that the ship be seized and detained until the licence be delivered up to be cancelled, or varied.

80. The Governor upon being satisfied that there are reasonable grounds for suspecting that a ship within the waters of the Colony has been, or is being built, altered, repaired, or equipped, or is about to be despatched and taken out to sea contrary to the provisions of section 74, or that any other offence against the said provisions has been committed, rendering the said ship liable to forfeiture, may issue a warrant in the form contained in schedule N hereto; and upon such warrant, the said ship may be seized and searched and detained until it has been either con- demned or released by process of law, or in the manner hereinafter mentioned.

87. Whenever any person shall have been convicted before the Supreme Court of an offence against sections 74 and 75, the evidence taken upon the trial of such offender shall be received in evidence in any proceedings instituted for the forfeiture or release of the ship in respect of which such offence shall have been committed; but it shall not be necessary to take proceedings against an offender because proceedings are instituted for the forfeiture, or to take proceedings for the forfeiture because proceedings are taken against the offender.

88. The fact of a ship being apparently fitted and equipped, or in course of being fitted and equipped within the waters of the Colony for the conveyance of Chinese emigrants shall, if the owner, agent or master shall not have obtained a licence from the Governor as required by section 74, or under section 6 of this Ordinance, be prima facie evidence that such ship is intended for the conveyance of Chinese emigrants to be embarked at some port or place out of the Colony.

89. If on the hearing of the said proceedings for the forfeiture or release of a ship seized under section 80, it shall be established to the satisfaction of the Court that the offence charged has not been committed in respect of such ship against the provisions of section 74 rendering such ship liable to forfeiture, the ship shall be released and restored to the owners thereof or their agents.

90. If on the hearing of the proceedings, it shall be established to the satisfaction of the Court that the offence charged has been committed in respect of such ship rendering the same liable to forfeiture under section 80, the Court shall declare such ship to be forfeited to the Crown. ·

91. It shall be lawful for the Court to impose such a pecuniary penalty as to the Court shall seem fit, in lieu of condemning the ship, and in such case to cause the ship to be detained until the penalty is paid, and to cause any penalty so imposed to be applied in the same manner in which the proceeds of the said ship, if condemned by order of the Court and sold, would have been applicable.

92. The costs of all proceedings for the forfeiture or release of a ship, shall be in the discretion of the Court.

93. If the Court be of opinion that there was not reasonable and probable cause for the seizure or detention, and if no such cause appear in the course of the proceedings, the Court shall have power to declare that the owner is to be indemnified by the payment of costs and damages in respect of the seizure or detention, the amount thereof to be assessed by the Court, and any amount so assessed shall be payable out of the general revenues of the Colony.

94. Every ship forfeited to the Crown for breach of the provisions of section 74 may be sold by public auction or private contract, and may be transferred to the purchaser by bill of sale under the hand of the Governor, and the seal of the Colony, and the net proceeds of such sale shall be paid into the Colonial Treasury for the use of the Crown.

95. The Governor may, at any time, release any ship seized and detained under section 80, notwithstanding her forfeiture by the sentence of the Supreme Court, on the owner or agent giving security to the satisfaction of the Governor that the ship shall not be employed contrary to section 74, or may release the ship without such security if the Governor think fit so to release the same.

96. Subject to the provisions of section 93 providing for the award of damages in certain cases in respect of the seizure or detention of a ship by the Court, no damages shall be payable, and no public officer, or other person acting under his order or at his request, shall be responsible, either civilly or criminally, in respect of the seizure or detention of any ships in pursuance of section 80.

97. No proceedings, other than the issue of a warrant for the seizure of a ship, or for the apprehension of an offender, shall be instituted for any offence against the provisions of sections 74 and 75, except at the suit or prosecution of, or with the consent of the Attorney General.

4. Whensoever the death of a person shall be caused by any wrongful act, neglect, or default, and the act, neglect, or default is such as would (if death had not ensued) have entitled the person injured to maintain a suit and recover damages in respect thereof, then and in every such case the person who would have been liable if death had not ensued, shall be liable to a suit for damages notwithstanding the death of the person injured, and although the death shall have been caused under such circumstances as amount in law to felony.

5. Every such suit shall be for the benefit of the wife, husband, parent, and child of the person whose death shall have been so caused, and shall except as hereinafter provided be brought by and in the name of the executor or administrator of the person deceased; and in every such suit the jury, or where the suit is tried without a jury the Court may give such damages as they or it may think proportioned to the injury resulting from such death, to the parties respectively for whom and for whose benefit such suits shall be brought; and the amount so recovered, after deducting the costs not recovered from the defendant, shall be divided amongst the beforementioned parties in such shares as the jury by their verdict shall find, or the Court, if the case be tried without a jury, shall direct.

6. If and so often as it shall happen at any time or times hereafter in any of the cases intended and provided for by this Ordinance that there shall be no executor or adminis- trator of the person killed within the meaning of this Ordi- nance or that there being such executor or administrator no such suit as aforesaid, shall within six months after the death of the person so killed as aforesaid have been brought by and in the name of his or her executor or administrator, then and in every such case such suit may be brought by and in the name or names of all or any of the persons (if more than one) for whose benefit such suit would have been, if it had been brought by and in the name of such executor or administrator; and every such suit so to be brought shall be for the benefit of the same person or persons and shall be subject to the same regulations and procedure as nearly as may be as if it were brought by and in the name of such executor or administrator.

8. If in any such suit as aforesaid, the defendant is advised to pay money into Court it shall be sufficient if he pay it as a compensation in one sum to all persons entitled under this Ordinance for his wrongful act, neglect or default without specifying the shares into which it is to be divided by the jury (if any) or by the Court if there be no jury: [if the said sum be accepted in full satisfaction of the plain- tiff's claim the Court or a judge thereof shall have power either at the hearing or upon a summons for that purpose to apportion the same amongst the parties (if more than one) entitled thereto;] but if the said sum be not accepted and an issue is taken by the plaintiff as to its sufficiency and the jury or Court (as the case may be) shall think the same sufficient, the defendant shall be entitled to the verdict or judgment upon that issue.

9. Not more than one suit shall lie for and in respect of the same subject matter of complaint; and every such suit shall be commenced within twelve calendar months after the death of the person so killed as aforesaid.

  It is mutually agreed that if any seamen or apprentices, not being slaves, should desert from any ship belonging to a subject of either of the Contracting Parties, within any port in the territories or in the possessions or Colonies of the other Contracting Party, the authorities of such port and territory, possession or Colony, shall be bound to give every assistance in their power for the apprehension and sending on board of such deserters, on application to that effect being made to them by the Consul of the country to which the ship of the deserter may belong, or by the deputy or representative of the Consul.

It is understood that the preceding stipulations shall not apply to subjects of the country where the desertion shall take place.

Each of the two High Contracting Parties reserves to itself the right of terminating this Agree- ment at any time, on giving to the other a year's notice of its wish to that effect.

In witness whereof the Undersigned have signed the present Agreement, and have affixed thereto the seal of their arms.

Now, therefore, Her Majesty, by virtue of the power vested in Her by the said "Foreign Deserters Act, 1852," and by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, is pleased to order and declare, and it is hereby ordered and declared, that from and after the publication hereof in the London Gazette, seamen, not being slaves, and not being British subjects, who, within Her Majesty's dominions, desert from merchant ships belonging to subjects of His Majesty the Emperor of Brazil, shall be liable to be apprehended and carried on board their respective ships: Provided always, that if any such deserter has committed any crime in Her Majesty's dominions, he may be detained till he has been tried by a competent court, and until his sentence, if any, has been carried into effect.

And Her Majesty, by virtue of the powers vested in Her by the said "Foreign Deserters Act, 1852," and by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, is further pleased to order and declare that, upon and after the publication hereof in the London Gazette, the Order in Council relating to seamen who desert from the merchant ships belonging to the subjects of the Emperor of Brazil, made by virtue of the said Act, on seventeenth day of May. one thousand eight hundred and seventy-six, shall be revoked, and the same is hereby revoked accordingly.

And the Secretary of State for the Home Department, the Secretary of State for the Colonies, and the Secretary of State for India in Council, are to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.

His Excellency the Governor recommends the following Notice to Public attention:-

GOVERNMENT NOTICE.

1. The subject of keeping up a supply of properly equipped "Guard" Boats to assist in the de- fence of the Colony, and of raising a Volunteer Corps to man them, is receiving the attention of the 'Government.

  2. It is considered that if this corps consisted of 40 or 50 members, these would probably be sufficient to act as a nucleus. On the emergency arising, it is thought that a further supply of Volunteers would be forthcoming who, in a short time, would acquire sufficient proficiency.

  3. Briefly stated, the conditions of service in the Volunteer Corps would be that, Members .will, for the benefit of the Colony, undertake to attend drills at least once a month, and in the case of threatened war place themselves at the disposal of the Government without reserve.

17.

  4. The organization of the Corps would be somewhat on the lines of the "Royal Naval Volunteers and the "Royal Naval Artillery Volunteers," and they would be required to serve in the special vessels provided for the defence of the Colony.

  The officers would receive commissions from the Governor, and an allowance to help towards providing themselves with the authorized uniform. They would be expected to acquire a competent knowledge of their duties, and to give a proper attention to the drills of the Corps. They will receive the pay of their rank when called out on actual service, and provision will also be made for officers and men disabled on service.

  The men of the Corps will be provided with uniform at the Government expense, and, when on service, will receive pay according to their rank.

  Officers and men will be required to conform to such Regulation as may be made from time to time by the Governor, and, when on actual service, will be subject to the provisions of the "Naval Discipline Act."

Any Volunteer may, except when on actual service, quit the Corps, on giving ten days' notice of his intention, and delivering up any property belonging to the Corps which may be in his possession. The drills will comprise the working of the machine guns carried by the vessels provided, as well as Rifle, Pistol and Cutlass drill, as carried out in the Royal Navy; in addition to this, the officers and petty officers will be trained with a view to rendering them capable of taking command of any vessel in the service of the Corps.

  5. With a view towards ascertaining whether the raising and institution of such a force is prac- ticable, the Government hereby invite offers from Candidates for enrolment in the Corps, the decision as to whether the undertaking is proceeded with or not depending on the number and character of the offers received.

Communications should be addressed to the Colonial Secretary.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.--No. 48

The following Annual Report of the Acting Postmaster General, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 28th ultimo, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 2nd February, 1889.

FREDERICK STEWART,

Colonial Secretary.

the

GENERAL POST OFFICE, HONGKONG, 8th January, 1889.

SIR,-I have the honour to report on the British Postal Service in Hongkong and China during year 1888.

   2. A new Contract with the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company, for the con- veyance of mails between Europe and China, came into force on the 1st February. Up to the present all steamers have arrived well within their Contract time. Although every effort was made on the part of this Department to arrange for the hour of departure of Mail steamers at noon, which was the time desired by the Chamber of Commerce, it was decided by the London Office (vide Mr. RAE's letter of 27th January appended) that as a general rule they were to leave at daylight, the days being Thursday during the fair season and Sunday during the monsoon. This was adhered to until the

 5th May, when the hour was changed to noon, and the day to Saturday. On the 12th September the day was again changed to Wednesday.

   3. The total number of officers in the establishment is 19. Four of these were added during the year, but even with this addition I find it difficult, owing to the largely increased business and conse- quent pressure, to carry on the postal work satisfactorily, and I have to express my deep obligations to the present staff for their unremitting endeavours to meet every difficulty as it arose, more especially to Messrs. ROCHA and MACHADO. If work goes on increasing as it has during the year, it will be. necessary to make further additions to the staff.

The statistics attached will give an idea how work is increasing.

   4. I regret to record the death of Mr. D. DA COSTA. He joined the service as far back as 1862 and has done excellent work as Marine Sorter.

   5. On the 12th June the Postmaster General (Hon. ALFRED LISTER) went home on leave and I took over charge of the Department with Mr. RoCHA as Acting Assistant Postmaster General. 6. The number of Parcels received and despatched during the year is as follows:-

By P. & O. Packet,

By German Packet,

Total,

Inward. 5,936

Outward.

4,276

Total. 10,212

254

127

381

6,190

4,403

10,593

   The total number despatched and received in 1887 is 9,407. There is therefore an increase of 1,186 parcels.

   7. By the Christmas Mail from Europe, we received 405 parcels and by the New Year's Mail from. Hongkong we despatched 407. These are the heaviest mails yet dealt with.

   8. On the 1st August the Rates of Postage on Parcels to the United Kingdom, were reduced as follows:-

1 lb.,

Each succeeding b. or fraction of a lb.,

25 cents. .20

   9. The London Office has laid down, that compensation not exceeding 20/ under any circum- stances will be paid in case of loss of or damage to a parcel forwarded to, from, or through the United Kingdom.

10. One parcel was seized by the British Customs authorities owing to its containing tobacco undeclared.

11 A Parcel Post between this Colony and Victoria and South Australia came into force on the 1st April, bu up to the present it has been very little used.

12. On the 1st October the postage to the Australasian Colonies via Ceylon was reduced to 15 cents per half ounce letters and 2 cents per 2 ounces for other articles.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND FEBRUARY, 1889. 105

13. The date on which this Report has to be sent in makes it impossible to detail the Revenue of the Department for 1888, which will not be definitively ascertained for some months to come. Revenue for 1887 is as follows:-

Gross Revenue 1887,

$141,324.08

$141,324.08

Share of United Kingdom, Share of other countries, Conveyance of Mails, Working expenses,. Balances,...

The

$51,085.18

6,824.82

6,572.45

35,971.74

40,869.89

$141,324.08

14. The loose ship letters received show a considerable decrease. Although this mode of trans- mission may be convenient for those who postpone correspondence until the last moment, yet it is not considered secure.

15. There were several instances of fraudulent enclosures of letters and embroidery &c. in news- papers. These were taken out and forwarded, letter rate being charged.

16. Money Orders may now be exchanged with Bangkok.

17. A. renewed effort was made to have the mails by the French Packets sorted on board between Singapore and Hongkong. I understand that the question has been forwarded to the proper Authori- ties at home, strongly supported by His Excellency the Governor and the Consul for France. Should it meet with the success it deserves, it will be a great boon not only to the Hongkong community but also to the communities. at the Coast Ports, for it frequently happens that during the North East Monsoon the Coast steamers cannot wait until the mail is sorted, and the consequence is Coast mails have to be kept back till the following steamers. Again during the present year the French mails have on several occasions arrived on the same day, on which the homeward mail leaves and to get it delivered so that letters may be answered by the outgoing packet, puts us to the greatest possible inconvenience and deranges the business of the Office completely.

18. On the 29th November a Peak delivery was introduced which is, as far as I can judge at present, a great convenience to the public. Of course during the winter months very few residents live at the Peak and the amount of correspondence must naturally be small. During the summer months, however, I feel convinced that this service will be a source of revenue.

From the 29th November the number of local letters despatched is 296, and those received, 70.

  I take this opportunity of recording my thanks to Mr. FINDLAY SMITH, Manager of the High Level Tramway Company, for his courteous assistance in this matter, especially in allowing our postmen to travel free.

19. The Postmaster General in his report for 1887 pointed out very strongly the urgent necessity for increased and improved accommodation, and made a proposal for remedying the growing evils of the present building and it is hoped that early steps may be taken to effect such an alteration as will be considered suitable to cope with the ever increasing work of this Department. The present building was constructed in the year 1865 to meet the requirements of the Colony at that time. Since then work has year by year considerably increased until every available space is occupied. A Pillar box. system and a house to house dilivery are very much needed and to carry out these improvements satisfactorily, it is necessary to almost double our Chinese staff, but then we have no place to house them. The present staff are herded together in a most inconvenient manner. It is true a small allowance might be granted them to live outside, but for obvious reasons it is preferable that they should reside on the premises.. We also require separate stamp windows for Europeans and Chinese. A visit to the Post Office on a mail day would convince anybody of this.

  20. A steam launch has been sanctioned for this Department subject to the approval of the Secretary of State, and by its means the landing and delivery of mails will be very much accelerated. We shall also be in a position to establish a Kowloon delivery. The sooner the building of this Launch is put in hand the better, so that the above improvements in the Postal service may be commenced with as little delay as possible.

21. The smuggling of Chinese letters still goes on to a very large extent and a considerable number of secret Post Offices exist. The revenue is in consequence defrauded of a large amount. On this matter, however, I have already reported, and I understand it is engaging the attention of the Government.

22. Our Postal Agents have applied for an increase of salary. They rest their claim not so much on the loss brought about by the fall in exchange. Its strength rests on the fact that their predeces- sors of 1868 received for the work they were then required to do, the same sum as they receive now. Since then they have been called on to undertake in addition the work of the very heavy duties neces- sarily laid on them by the introduction and extension of the Postal Note and Parcel Post system. Their work has been multiplied indefinitely while their pay, expressed in dollars remains the same,

106. THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND FEBRUARY, 1889.

and expressed in sterling is diminished by more than one fourth. I feel convinced that His Excellency the Governor will at once admit the justice of their request which is that their salaries should be raised to such a sum in dollars as will fairly represent the amount of £100 per annum more especially now that the question of handing over our Agencies to the Customs, seems further off than ever, and it is probable that the postal work will for many years continue, as it has always been, in the hands of the Assistant at Her Majesty's Consulate. Our Aimoy Agent in particular has a deal of work to get through as the following statistics show.

During the year 1888 the gross revenue collected by him amounted to $10,849.68 made up as follows:-

Sale of Stamps,.

Sale of Postal Notes,

Collected on Unpaid Letters..

do. on short paid parcel..

Profit on remittance,

$ 9,185.06

1.431.75

$10,849.68

The sale of Postage stamps for the 12 months amounted to $9,185.06 against 57,837.81 in 1887 being an increase of $1,347.25.

The following tables show the number of registered articles and parcels received and sent during the years 1887 and 1888:-

The sale of Postal Notes during 1888 amounted to $1,431.75 against $1,312.58 in 1887, being an increase of $119.17. The business of that Agency as well as all the others is increasing every year.

A

Direct mails for Manila have already given considerable additional work, and now the large steamers for Japan, Vancouver and San Francisco have commenced to call at Amoy. If this is con- tinued a proper office will be required in the Amoy side and the number of the staff increased. great want is also felt for two extra gigmen. Two men are not able to do the work. It frequently happens that they are called upon to pull out when a high sea is running to take the mails from some steamer anchored outside the harbour. I would suggest that as soon as the Steam Launch for this Office is ready for use our gig be renovated and sent to Amoy and two extra men allowed.

I have the honour to be,

APPENDIX.

Sir,

Your obedient Servant,

ARTHUR K. TRAVERS,

Acting Postmaster General.

GENERAL POST OFFICE, LONDON, January 27, 1888.

SIR,-Referring to my letter of the 5th instant I am directed by the Postmaster General to transmit to you to be laid before the Secretary of State for the Colonies some copies of a revised Time Table of the India and China Mail Services for the present year, shewing a proposed acceleration of the Mail steamers on the China line.

It will be seen that on the outward voyages the transit between Brindisi and Shanghai is less by 42-hours than the Contract time and on the homeward voyages, it is less than the Contract time by from 36 to 132 hours according to the season of the year.

The Postmaster General regrets that it has not been found possible to arrange for a departure from Hongkong at noon as desired by the Hongkong Chamber of Commerce, because in order to effect the considerable acceleration now contem- plated it is essential that the packets should arrive at Singapore at daylight and leave that port at 8 o'clock the following morning, so as to arrive at Penang on the afternoon of the following day, thus giving convenient mail hours to both Sin- gapore and Penang and a rapid transit through the Straits of Malacca.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND FEBRUARY, 1889.

107

  In order to attain this result the mail packet as a general rule, will leave Hongkong at daylight and this it is believed will be a convenient arrangement to the community. The days of departure will be Thursday in the fair season and Sunday in the monsoon and this will admit of the mails, being closed and put on board the night before so that the Packets can leave at the early dawn and get a clear departure from the Port.

  In connection with this subject. of leaving Hongkong and the allusion made to the French Mail hours it is right I should point out that a reference to the letter written by the Postmaster General of Hongkong to the Colonial Secretary dated the 16th of June, 1886, shows the reason of the Messageries Company in fixing noon for leaving Hongkong to be in no way out of consideration for any wishes expressed by that community but in order to permit of their saving daylight at the mouth of the Saigon River.

The laws of a country are made, first of all, to suit its own people. The people have a right to keep their laws unchanged as long as they please. They are not bound to alter them to suit the pleasure or the convenience of any other nation. All that is clear. But it is equally clear, on the other hand, that they cannot get out of their responsibility to another State by merely saying, "We 'have such and such laws, and we do not choose to alter them." If the laws permit harm to be done to a foreign State, the people maintaining the laws must either make compensation to the foreign State, or they must meet her in war.

By His

Order of Sainellency Sir G. WILLIAM DES VEUX, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished

Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the Colony of Hong- kong and its Dependencies, and Vice-Admiral of the same.

  Whereas by Ordinance No. 3 of 1862, intituled An Ordinance to authorise His Excellency the Governor by Proclamation to prohibit the Exportation of Military Stores and other Articles, as amended by Ordinance 3 of 1884, it is enacted that it should be lawful for His Excellency the Governor, by and with the advice of the Executive Council, by Proclamation to be published in the Hongkong Government Gazette, or in any Extraordinary Gazette, to prohibit, for such period as should be mentioned in such Proclamation, either to be exported from the Colony of Hongkong, or to be carried coastwise within the said Colony (amongst other things) Arms, Ammunition, Gunpowder, and Military and Naval Stores, subject to any permission that may be obtained under the last mentioned Ordinance.

And whereas in consequence of certain representations made to me by His Excellency the Governor of British North Borneo, I have determined, with the advice of the Executive Council of this Colony, to prohibit such exportation for the period hereinafter mentioned: Now, therefore, I, Sir G. WILLIAM DES V?ux, by and with the advice of the Executive Council of this Colony, do, by this Proclamation, for a period of six months from the date thereof, prohibit, either to be exported from the Colony of Hongkong, or to be carried coastwise within the said Colony, Arms, Ammunition, Gunpowder, and Naval and Military Stores; unless this Proclamation shall be in the meantime revoked, or unless permission shall have been obtained under Ordinance 3 of 1884.

G. WILLIAM DES VEUX.

The Governor deems it his duty to draw the attention of the Council to the terrible famine in North China, with a view to the consideration whether some contribution in aid of the sufferers should not be made from the funds of this Colony. Similar calamities are un- fortunately only too common among the dense population of the neighbouring Empire; and sympathy is apt to be paralysed, or rather its manifestation checked, by their very magnitude, and the consequent hopelessness of affording relief at all proportionate to the enormous need for it. But if this consideration were allowed always to have weight, charity would be con- fined within exceedingly narrow limits, if not altogether extinguished. And the only. questions really deserving to be considered, either by Governments or by individuals, in respect of any particular case of suffering is (1) whether it is one, in aid of which some portion of the means at disposal may be appropriately used, having regard to the many other objects deserving attention, and (2) whether in case of aid being afforded there is reasonable probability of its being properly and usefully applied.

As regards the first question, the position of a Government differs from that of an indi- vidual in this, that the former is not free to give play to sympathy, and must confine its action to a comparatively limited field. For the funds at its disposal. being held as a trust, any application of them can be properly made only when, proportionately to its extent, it is beneficial directly or indirectly, to the contributing taxpayers, or when, though not materially beneficial to them, it is one which meets with their general concurrence.

After much consideration, the Governor has arrived at the conclusion that a reasonable contribution from the funds of the Colony towards the aid of the sufferers by the present calamity would fulfil one and probably both of the above conditions. For such a token of sympathy would tend materially to promote and strengthen those friendly relations with China, which are so all-important to the prosperity of Hongkong; while, having regard to the exceptional magnitude of the present calamity on the one hand, and to the favourable condition of the Colonial finances on the other, there would probably be but one opinion in the Colony as to the expediency of such a contribution, if the second of the above questions can be answered satisfactorily,, viz.: that as to the proper application of the contributed funds. But happily on this point also there is a satisfactory reply. The papers which will be laid on the table show that the local authorities at Shanghai having, in the urgent need of their countrymen, made appeal for assistance, Europeans and Chinese have alike responded to it, and being drawn together by the bond of a common humanity are working in unison for the establishment of relief-agencies. When moreover regard.is had to the number and names of those who are taking part in this movement, there can be no more opening for reasonable doubt that any aid afforded will be properly applied than that such aid is urgently required.

As to the amount of contribution, the Governor, all things considered, is of opinion that it should be at least ten thousand dollars. He therefore invites the Council to pass a vote for that amount; he proposes to remit this, or any other sum which may meet with the approval of the Council, to H.M.'s Consul-General at Shanghai, with the request that he and

163

the other British Consular Officers stationed there will apportion the fund among the various relief agencies, without any regard to religious or denominational prejudices, in such a manner as, according to their joint discretion, may appear likely to do most good.

As no possible amount of contributions can afford substantial relief to all, or even to any large proportion, of the millions who are suffering from this calamity, the Governor hopes that the vote which he now proposes will not prove to be a check but will rather operate as. a stimulus, to that private benevolence for which the community of Hongkong is so honour- ably known; and he trusts that here also as at Shanghai, Europeans and Chinese will exert themselves for an object which appeals alike, if not equally, to the sympathies of both.

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 ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

11. A candidate who passes the test examination, but does not succeed in the competition, will be entitled to compete at the next examination, provided he is within the limits of age at that time. No candidate will be allowed to compete more than twice. A candidate who fails to pass the test will not be entitled to another trial, but he will be allowed to compete at the next examination if he receives a fresh nomination and is still within the limits of age.

12. A candidate who, owing to illness, fails to appear at the examination for which he has obtained his nomination may receive a second nomination, provided he is still within the limits of age. 13. For all Cadets entered under these regulations, the payment will be at the rate of £75 per annum for the period in the Britannia, to be paid half-yearly in advance to the Accountant-General of the Navy. But the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty reserve the power of selecting, from among the Cadets entered at each half-yearly examination, a number, not to exceed eight, being sons of officers of the Navy, Army, or Marines, or of Civil Officers under the Board of Admiralty, with respect to whom the annual payment will be £40 only. In this selection their Lordships will have regard solely to the pecuniary circumstances of the Cadet.

* "Gardiner's Outlines of English History" (Longmans) has been selected as the present text book for Examination in English History. The subject will be divided into three periods, as follows

Examination to be held in November 1888, A.D. 1066-1485.

14. In addition to the annual payments mentioned in the foregoing paragraph, the parent or guardian will be charged with the personal expenses incurred by the Cadet for washing, repairing boots and clothes, hair cutting, pocket-money, &c.

15. The period of training on board the Britannia will be four terms; there will be two terms in each year. The first term of each year will be from February to July, the second from September to December.

The vacations will be five weeks at Christmas, two weeks at Easter, and six weeks at Mid-

summer.

16. (a) Examinations in Seamanship and Study will be held at the end of each term.

(b) Cadets who fail at the end of their second term to obtain 40 per cent. of marks in Mathe-

matical subjects will be ordered to be withdrawn.

(c) Cadets who fail at the final examination to obtain 40 per cent. in the Mathematical subjects, including the Theory of Navigation and Nautical Astronomy, and 50 per cent. in the Technical subjects, combined with Physics and French, will be ordered to be withdrawn.

(d) Cadets reported to the Admiralty for unsatisfactory conduct will be "warned," and should they be again reported they will be discharged: any Cadet however who is reported for unsatisfactory conduct during his final term will be discharged without being allowed to present himself at the examination for passing out of the Britannia. (e) Any Cadet who shall at any time appear to their Lordships to be unfit for the Naval Service, for any reason whatever, will be removed from the Britannia, and it must be understood that this rule will apply to those who are considered unfit from insufficient physical development or weakness of constitution, although no actual organic disease may have been developed.

   17. It is to be distinctly understood that the period of training on board the Britannia is a time of probation, and the parent or guardian of every Cadet will be required to sign a declaration (on the admission of the Cadet to the Britannia), to the effect that he shall be immediately withdrawn on the receipt of an official intimation of his being considered unfit for the Navy.

   18. Cadets will, on passing out of the Britannia, rank according to the amount of sea time they obtain at their final examination, and those who obtain equal amounts of sea time will rank in the order of merit in which they pass out of the Britannia.

   19. The parent or guardian of every Cadet will be required to provide outfit under the regulations in force.

20. No pay will be allowed by Government to Cadets in the Britannia. The pocket-money allowed to Cadets will be charged to the parents.

   21. As only Cadets who are able to swim are permitted to use the boats belonging to H.M.S. "Britannia," the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty desire to inpress upon parents and guardians the importance of Cadets being taught to swim before they join the Training Ship, so as to enable them to obtain the full benefits of use of the boats.

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.

A BILL

ENTITLED

The Reclamation Ordinance.

HEREAS the foreshore of the Harbour of Victoria is in process of silting up to the detriment of the health and commerce of the Colony, and it is expedient to put a stop to such process and to provide a deep water frontage; and whereas the area of level land for building and for roads and quays and open spaces along the sea front of the City of Victoria is insufficient to meet the growing wants of the Colony, and it is expedient to enlarge the same: Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. The works authorized by this Ordinance and all works for the effectual and convenient carrying out of the same are declared to be works for the improvement of the Colony and for a "public purpose" within the meaning of that term as contained in the Crown leases of lands in the Colony.

2. Subject to the provisions and for the purposes of this Ordinance, it shall be lawful for the Governor to carry out the works authorized by this Ordinance according to the plans and drawings signed by the Surveyor General, counter- signed by the Governor and now deposited in the Land Office, and such plans and drawings shall remain in the said Office and shall be open to public inspection at convenient hours.

4

In carrying out the works it shall be lawful for the Governor to deviate in respect of details to any extent that shall not materially alter or affect the general design set forth in such plans and drawings.

3. The works authorized by this Ordinance comprise the following, that is to say:

(a.) The making of an embankment along the harbour front of the City of Victoria with all necessary and convenient walls, drains, wharves, piers, landing places, approaches and other conveniences and works; such embankment to commence Westward at a point upon the sea-shore opposite the Gas Works, and to terminate Eastward at a point oppo- site to Murray Pier; the said embankment to be constructed in whole or in greater part upon the bed or foreshore of the harbour.

(b.) The making upon the said embankment of a public road-way not less than seventy-five feet, and the widening out of the present Praya road- way to a width of not less than sixty-five feet, with all necessary and convenient approaches to the same.

(c.) The reclaiming and enclosing and filling up so much of the foreshore and bed of the Harbour as lies between the present Praya Wall and the intended embankment, to such heights and levels as may be determined by the Governor.

4. For the purpose of effecting the works authorized by this Ordinance it shall be lawful for the Governor to remove, destroy, alter, divert, stop up, or enclose such streets, drains, void ground, wharves, piers, landing places, and other things as shall in the judgment of the Governor be necessary to be douc for the purposes of this Ordinance.

ARATHOON SETH, Clerk of Councils.

216

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 23RD MARCH, 1889.

5. All the land and foreshore and bed of the sea to be reclaimed under this Ordinance, and all the land occupied by the present Praya road-way and wall along the line of the intended reclamation, is hereby declared to be absolutely the property of the Crown, free from any restriction whatever, and the Governor shall have power, subject to the provisions of this Ordinance, to deal with the same and to dispose of the same for building or any other purpose in the same way and to as full an extent as in the case of other Crown lands; and all property, estate, rights or supposed rights and ease- ments or supposed casements of any persons or class of persons, whether Crown leaseholders or licensees or other- wise, to the user or possession or occupation of, in, over or in any way in relation to such land, foreshore, bed of the sea embankment, reclamation or praya road-way and wall, or in relation to any wharf, landing place, pier or other place, situate thereupon, are hereby declared to be absolutely extinguished and determined."

8.

All holders of lots or sections fronting upon the present praya road-way between the eastern and western limits men- tioned in this Ordinance who have not already declared their willingness to enter into agreements, as in Schedules 4 and B set forth, to contribute for the purposes of the works shall have the option of entering into such agreements at any time within 3 months of the passing of this Ordi- nance, and such of the said holders as do enter into such agreements shall be entitled to receive in respect of their contributions as specified in Schedule C to this Or- dinauce Crown feases of such portions of the proposed re- clamation as are delineated and marked with the numbers of their respective lots and painted yellow upon the plans now deposited in the Land Office; and it shall be lawful for the Governor to enter into and carry out such agreements, and to dispose of the reclaimed land in accordance there- with.

In case any such holder declines to enter into, any; agreement in manner above provided he shall have no claim to any compensation in respect of any depreciation of his lot by reason of the works to be carried out under this Ordinance, but the Governor may if he thinks fit award to him such a sum of money or such a Crown Lease of new land as he may in his absolute discretion think sufficient as and by way of compensation for any injury that such lot- holder may have sustained by the works.

If from time to time before the completion of the works authorized by this Ordinance any extraordinary loss, damage or expense is caused to or rendered necessary for the works or for any portion thereof by or in conse- quence of any unforeseen difficulties that may present themselves in the progress of the works or by or in consequence of any typhoon or storm or other catastrophe such loss, damage or expense shall when it has been ascer- ained by the Surveyor General and certified by him to the Governor in Council, be made good by the holders whose names are contained in Schedules A and C each such holder contributing such a proportion of the sum required as shall in the opinion of the Surveyor General correspond to the proportion which such holder's original contribution as stated in the third column of Schedule A or C (as the case may be) bore to the whole sum originally agreed to be contributed by the holders, whose names are contained in such Schedules the amount in each case to be determined by the Surveyor General.

G. WILLIAM DES VEUX.

The Governor has given directions that there shall be laid before the Legislative Council an Ordinance to be entitled "The Praya Reclamation Ordinance, 1889? containing the necessary provisions for carrying out a great scheme of reclamation in front of the central and western portions of the Town of Victoria.

Though the general nature of the scheme and the manner in which it is proposed to be carried out have become well known to Honourable Members and to the community, the various questions connected with this great undertaking are now for the first time brought under the consideration of the Legislative Council; and it may be well therefore to make a short statement on the subject for the information of interested persons outside the Colony, and for the purpose of convenient reference in the future.

230

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH MARCH, 1889.

The project for carrying out which it is the object of this Ordinance to provide, is shortly as follows:--

To build a cut-stone sea-wall in front of the present Praya and at an average distance from it of about 260 feet, along its whole length extending from the War Office property at the North Barracks to the Gas Works, a distance of some 3,400 yards, or nearly two miles.

To fill in with earth and stone the intervening space, comprising an area of some 56 acres, in such a manner that it shall be available for building purposes; and

To construct upon this reclaimed area the necessary streets with all requisite channels and sewers, a work which, besides a considerable number of cross- streets, will include a new Praya, 75 feet in width along the whole length of the new sea-wall, and the widening to 75 feet for a similar distance of the present Praya which will thus become an inland street.

The cost of all these works, the amount of which is estimated at somewhat more than $2,500,000, is to be defrayed by the owners of the marine frontage affected by the proposed reclamation, on the terms arranged in the correspondence which has been published, and now expressed in this Ordinance.

As however the maintenance of the new sea-wall when completed will be a charge on the public funds, it has been deemed necessary that its construction should be under the strict supervision of the Government. So that for this reason and on other grounds of obvious convenience the whole of the works will be undertaken by the Surveyor General's Department under a special Engineer appointed for the purpose. Though the owners of frontage-lots, as the Governor is advised on high authority, are not in a position analogous to that of riparian proprietors, inasmuch as they have no immediate access to the sea (the foreshore having for many years been occupied by a wide public street), it is held that what- ever may be their legal rights they have for various reasons, well understood here, a moral claim to compensation in respect of reclamations in front of their land. On this ground, therefore, and in order to avoid the endless litigation that would otherwise arise in respect of the complicated interests involved, it has been deemed right to come to terms with them, under which they will undertake the whole cost and risk of the work, and will receive in return a very large share of the profits, estimated from the present value of frontage land to reach the large total of over $5,000,000.

The Governor was of opinion that this profit on the part of the lot-holders was unduly large; and that either they should pay a considerable sum by way of premium, or the Government should carry out the reclamation on its own account, paying equitable compen- sation for any injury to private. rights. The Secretary of State however did not take this view, and has decided that in any case negotiations have gone too far to impose any such stipulation now; and he accordingly sanctioned with some minor modifications the terms. provisionally arranged with the lot-holders and approved the draft of the Ordinance now submitted for carrying them into effect.

The Ordinance in its present form has therefore already received the careful consideration of Her Majesty's Government; and the Governor has much pleasure in giving effect to the Secretary of State's decision on the scheme, which, whatever the gain of individuals, is fraught with unquestionably great advantages to the public. These are shortly as follows:-

(1.) The provision of some 32 acres of building sites, which, when covered with houses (as they are morally certain to be as soon as completed) will afford a substantial relief to the present congested condition of the Town of Victoria or at least will tend to prevent the still further overcrowding of that contiguous portion of the Town which already is probably more densely populated than any other equal space in the world.

(2.) The conversion into wholesome drained land of the present noxious foreshore, which is becoming year by year a more serious nuisance, and involving an ever increasing danger to the health of the community.

(3.) A great improvement in the Port, as regards the conditions of discharging cargoes, arising from the fact that vessels of large draught will be able to lie alongside the proposed sea-wall throughout its entire length, and thus save considerable sums in lighterage.

(4.) A large pecuniary gain to the Colonial Treasury consisting of,--

(a.) The profit from that portion of the reclamation to be undertaken by the Government in front of its own property; the land to be thus reclaimed being estimated at the value of $1,803,956, against an estimated cost of $362,369, showing a probable net profit of $1,441,587.

"

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH MARCH, 1889.

231

(b.) A probable return estimated, (according to the low rate of $1 per square foot), at $300,000, from land in Kennedytown now useless, which will be converted into valuable building sites by the removal of rock and earth for the proposed reclamation.

(c.) Rent from the sites last mentioned and from the reclaimed land

estimated at $29,200 per annum.

Briefly summarised the pecuniary profit which is estimated as likely to accrue to the Government from this scheme is $1,741,587 from land-sales and an annual income from rent amounting to $29,200.

It will be observed that in the above estimate of advantages no account has been taken of the large amount, estimated at $100,000 per annum to be derived from the rates that will be payable in respect of the buildings erected on the reclaimed land and on the Kennedytown sites mentioned, the reason of the omission being that it is difficult to forecast at the moment how far this sum will be absorbed by additional charges for Police Stations, Police, Lighting, &c. It is not at all probable that these charges will reach so large a total or anything like it; but in setting forth the benefits of the scheme, the Governor desires to err, if at all, on the side of under-statement.

There is, however, another beneficial result which may be fairly added, as though prin- cipally of an aesthetic nature, it is nevertheless a very appreciable one, viz.: the greatly improved appearance in the front of the Town which will be brought about by the super- vision to be exercised in respect of the character of the buildings erected.

66

""

In view of this catalogue of advantages, it cannot be doubted that the prosecution of this great scheme is in the strictest sense a public purpose as defined by the Ordinance, and, the question whether the lot-holders should receive somewhat more or less profit would seem, after all, of such comparative insignificance, that it should not be permitted for a moment to stand in the way of so vast a public improvement.

For against the expected profits of the private persons concerned has to be set the risk, by no means slight, which they will have to incur in respect of typhoons and other accidents; while as regards both the rent to be paid by them, ($800 per acre), and the large area (26 acres) for streets, which the public will obtain free of cost, the conditions. under which this work will be undertaken are at least more onerous than have been exacted from the adjoining lot-owners in the case of any previous reclamations. And when it is moreover considered that an enterprise involving great, many and varied interests will be carried out with comparatively little, and it is hoped without any litigation, the Governor cannot but feel that the Colony is to be congratulated on the conclusion of the arrangement to be sanctioned by this Ordinance, which, whether it is, or is not, as perfect as it might have been, will in any case confer incalculable benefits on the community.

*

The details of the Ordinance, which may very possibly require amendment, will perhaps be best left for discussion in Committee; but the Governor thinks it well to refer briefly to an objection which he understands has been made to the third paragraph of the 6th clause of the published draft, by which compensation to dissentient lot-holders is left to the discretion of the Governor. It is needless to say that the Government has no desire to accord other than the fullest justice in respect of private rights; and though the provision in question has no doubt an arbitrary appearance, that aspect of it will probably disappear altogether from unprejudiced minds when the circumstances are fully considered. It should be remem- bered in the first place that the tenure of every one of the lot-holders is under a lease containing a condition, by which his land may at any time be resumed for a public purpose, the Surveyor General being in such case constituted the sole arbitrator--so that if the land of any lot-holder were to be, as it legitimately might be, resumed for this public purpose, the position created for him by a condition to which he has voluntarily submitted already, could hardly be regarded as preferable to that contemplated by the proposed enact- ment. There is however a more important consideration to be taken into account. provision was presumably drafted, and sanctioned by the Secretary of State, on the assump- tion of the correctness of the opinion above referred to, according to which the frontage lot-holders have no legal rights in the foreshore. In this view they are strictly entitled to compensation only in respect of the actual depreciation of their property by the reclamation in front of it; and as in the case of former reclamations here the value of the adjoining land has never, the Governor understands, been affected otherwise than favourably, it is very possible that the lot-holder, if in this case left to his legal rights alone, would obtain no compensation at all. But by the provision in question there can be taken into account the moral claims above mentioned; so that instead of being a hardship to the dissentient lot-holder, the clause in reality will operate for his protection. If however, there should prove to be any lot-holder who not only declines the agreement which has received the approval of the great majority and is embodied in this Ordinance, but also prefers to stand solely on his legal rights, it seems only fair that means should be found for enabling him to do so.

The

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH MARCH, 1889.

Anticipating as certain the approval of the Council to the prosecution of the scheme, whatever the form in which this Ordinance may finally pass, the Governor has already appointed an Engineer who will, under the supervision of the Surveyor General, devote himself exclusively to the reclamation, and will submit at once for consideration his view as to the staff which will be required in order to begin and prosecute the works with all possible speed.

With a view to cause as little obstruction as possible to the trade of the Port, it is proposed that only two, or at the most three of the seven sections of the reclamation shall be taken in hand at a time; and it is probable that a commencement will be made on those at the two extremes of the foreshore.

Before concluding the Governor deems it well to acknowledge thus publicly the service which has been rendered to the Colony by the Honourable C. P. CHATER, in initiating this great enterprise, and in assisting to bring about the arrangement under which it will be accomplished. It is also only right to mention in this place the Honourable J. M. PRICE, whose able reports on the project have secured its approval by the highest engineering authority in England and its sanction by the Secretary of State, and who has thus rendered not the least of the many valuable services, now unhappily come to a close, which will render his name ever memorable in this Colony.

It may moreover be noticed in this connection that the plans, also elaborated by Mr. PRICE, for the junction of the East and West Prayas were sent to England for the approval of Her Majesty's Government some two months ago. As the local Naval and Military authorities are now in entire agreement with the Civil Government on this subject, and as the Imperial Government is only asked to pay towards the cost, a sum less by several hundred thousand dollars than the value of the reclaimed land to be acquired by the War Department and the Admiralty, it may be hoped that this great work of improvement, now by the growth of the population become absolutely necessary, will also be very soon commenced, and that the negociations of the last twenty years, hitherto unhappily fruitless, will thus at length be brought to a satisfactory termination.

Should this prove to be the case the first, and most important, steps will have been taken towards the realization of the hope, which the Governor earnestly entertains, that before the close of his administration these two great works may be finished-works which in adding a new face to the Town throughout nearly three of the four miles of its length and affording increased opportunity for its expansion in three different directions, may be expected to give a very powerful impetus to the advancement of the Colony.

No. 7.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH MARCH, 1889.

Minutes of the Proceedings of the SANITARY BOARD at a meeting held on Wednesday, the 20th of March, 1889:--

PRESENT:

The Colonial Surgeon, (Dr. Philip Bernard CHENERY AYRES), President.

The Acting Registrar General, (NORMAN GILBERT MITCHELL-INNES, Esquire).

The Honourable WONG SHING.

NATHANIEL JOSEPH EDE, Esquire..

JOHN DAVID HUMPHREYS, Esquire.

The Board met pursuant to adjournment.

The Minutes of the Meeting held on the 13th instant, were read and confirmed. Building Bill.-Sections 50 to 54 were considered :-

SECTIONS 50 & 51.-Mr. EDE moved :-

That as there seems to be no provision in the new Building Bill for an open space whereon to build a privy such as is described in the Bill, some provision should be made for a small open yard or space for that purpose, especially in regard to tenement houses, but if this be not found practicable, rather than that any house should be without a privy, it would be desirable to permit it to open into the building, provided always that the privy shall have a good wooden door to close the communication with the house, and that it shall have a window and ventilator opening into the outer air as described in Section 51 of the Bill.

Mr. HUMPHREYS seconded.

The Honourable WONG SHING moved as an amendment.

That no sufficient reason has been shown for the erection of the privies mentioned in the Bill and that the present system works as satisfactorily, if not more so, than the one suggested would probably do. Not seconded.

The Board then divided on Mr. EDE's motion.

Motion carried.

For.

THE PRESIDENT. Mr. EDE.

Mr. HUMPHREYS.

Mr. EDE moved :----

66

Against. 'Honourable WONG SHING.

That the last seven words, of Section 50, namely, or nearly on a level with it" be omitted, for so long as a proper privy is provided for each floor of tenement houses the position of the privy may be safely left to

· the house owner.

Mr. HUMPHREYS seconded.

- Question-put and passed.

SECTION 52.-Mr. EDE moved:-

That the floor of a privy not on the ground floor should not have an inclination towards the door be- cause when it is washed out, as it should be frequently, the water would flow over the walls below. It should have an inclination towards one of the corners away from the seat where a pipe should be fixed to carry off the ablution water.

The President seconded.

Question-put and passed.

SECTION 53.-Mr. EDE moved :-

That if there is to be no communication of any sort with any under ground private drain or public sewer thecloset cannot be washed out as it should be; on the contrary, there should be a short open surface channel leading to the private drain of the house through a proper trap.

The President seconded.

Question-put and passed.

SECTION 54.-Mr. EDE moved :

(A.) That in the 4th line after the words " every privy" the section should read which is provided with a seat shall have it fitted in such a manner as to be readily removed, &c.

(B.) The general Chinese system of two small brick or stone piers is a very good and sanitary one. (C.) That the walls of the privy should be coated with cement mortar or other non-absorbent material to a height of not less than 3 feet.

The President seconded.

Question-put and passed.

The President moved:-

That the Resolutions of the Board relative to sectio
