(1153) Naikai (Setouchi)-Nagato Strait-Correction of Magnetic variation.

   On October 1889, the variation of the compass observed by Lieut. D. YASUOKA I.J.N., at Nagato Strait is 4° 40′ westerly. Thenceforth the charts and sailing directions should be so corrected.

This notice affects the following Hydrographic office charts Nos. 143, 183, and 196.

(1154) The same place as above-Extension of Moji Bank.

With reference to Notice to Mariners No. 408 on 14th September 1889, on the existence of a shoal approaching Moji Bank:-

   It has recently been ascertained by a survey of Lieut. T. SUZUKI I. J. N., that Moji Bank has a tendency of gradual extension to south-westward, and it has extended about 2 cables in the same direction from the position of Moji buoy which now lies with Telegraph office bearing N. 55° 10′ W., and Moji-saki bearing N. 37° 5′ E. Hence it is found that the buoy has been moved southward about one cable from the position marked on the Hydrographic office chart No. 196.

The south-western extremity of this shoal with a depth of 23 fathoms (bottom shell) at low water springs lies with Telegraph office bearing N. 30° 30′ W., and Moji-saki bearing N. 41° 50′ E.

NOTE: The depth of water off Moji Bank changed considerably since 1884; also a shoal with a depth of 23 fathoms has been found in a N.EE. direction for a distance of about cable from Moji buoy. Mariners are therefore cau- tioned to exercise the great care in navigating in the vicinity of Moji buoy.

(The bearing are magnetic and variation 4° 40′ westerly in 1889.)

This notice affects the following Hydrographic office charts Nos. 143, 183, 196.

5. The directors may admit any public officer who shall have been appointed before the coming into force of this Ordinance to contribute towards the fund, provided that such public officer shall pay forthwith, or by such instal- ments as the directors shall determine, a sum equal to all the abatements which would have been made from his salary and all the compound interest which would have accrued on such abatements if he had commenced to con- tribute to such fund on the date when this Ordinance first came into force. And every public officer so admitted to contribute to the fund shall be entitled to the same privileges and shall be subject to the same conditions in respect of the fund as are all other contributors.

16. A contributor who, for any reason except transfer to other employment under the Crown, or dismissal for misconduct, shall retire from the service without being entitled to pension, or whose office shall be abolished with- out his being entitled to a pension, shall cease to have any interest in the fund, and neither the widow nor orphan of such contributor shall have any claim upon such fund.

And if, when such contributor retires from the service of the Crown on pension, he is a bachelor or a widower without children born in wedlock, he may claim repayment from the fund of half of his total contributions, without interest, provided his claim is lodged in the manner prescribed by section 16.

32. A wife against whom any contributor has obtained a divorce in a British Court of Justice shall, for the pur- poses of this Ordinance, be considered as dead, but where a contributor has been separated from his wife, judicially, or by mutual consent, or otherwise, the directors may, having regard to the grounds of the separation, and the subsequent conduct of both parties, grant a pension either to the widow or to the orphans if any, as they shall think most desirable. 33. The widow of any contributor by a second or any other subsequent marriage shall be entitled to the same pension as would have been paid to the first wife if she had survived her husband, provided that such second or sub- sequent wife was not younger at the date of her marriage with the contributor than the first wife would have been at such date if she had lived. If she is younger, her pension shall be reduced in accordance with the tables hereinbefore mentioned.

34. When any contributor dies leaving a widow and also children by a previous marriage, whose ages entitle them to pensions, or either the respective pensions of such widow and of such orphans shall be computed as follows;-

(1.) If there are three or more such children, they shall be entitled to one half the pension to which their mother would have been entitled had she survived her husband, to be divided equally amongst them.

(2.) If two such children, one-third of such mother's pension shall be divided between them. (3.) If only one such child, he shall be entitled to

one-fourth of such mother's pension.

(4.) In any of the three above-mentioned cases, the said widow shall be entitled to one-half of the pension which she would have received under section 33 had there been no such orphans. (5.) If there are no such orphans, or if they cease to be entitled to pensions, the pension of such widow will be computed under section 33. (6.) Should such widow die without leaving children or marry again having had no child by such contributor, the orphans by the previous mar- riage shall be entitled to pensions as if their father had not married such widow.

(7.) Should such widow die leaving children or marry again having children living by her marriage with such contributor, such children shall have the pension to which their mother was entitled divided equally amongst them.

Pensions. General Rules.

35. Widows or orphans entitled to pensions and residing out of the Colony must produce proof, to the satisfaction of the directors, of their being alive and entitled thereto, before their pensions are paid.

Table B.-The tabular results are shown (in eleven divisions) for every age of the husband from 19 to 64, and for every fifth age of the wife, commencing at age 15 and down to 65. Ages below or beyond should be taken at the limit shown. The results corresponding to the intermediate ages of the wives should be obtained by interpolation, in the manner illustrated above for Table A. In using this Table, care should be taken to enter the proper division corresponding with the age at which the 35 years of contribution will cease.

Table C.-The tabular results are shown for the same range of ages as in Table A. Ages below or beyond should be taken at the limit shown. The results for the intermediate ages of the wives should be obtained by interpolation, in the manner illustrated above for Table A; but it should be carefully noted that the correction, in the case of this Table, is subtractive, and not additive, as in Table A.

ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE METHODS OF ASSESSING THE PENSIONS.

1. The following is the mode of assessing the Pensions of Widows whose husbands were members as above,

and in the Public Service of Hongkong :

First Wife's Pension.

A.-IN CONSIDERATION OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS PAID BY SUCH MEMBER during Bachelorhood.

RULE: Accumulate the contributions at 6 per cent. compound interest, and multiply the amount by the quantity found in Table A corresponding to the respective ages of the husband and wife at the time of marriage.

The product will give the annual pension to which the wife will be entitled on her husband's death, on account of his past contributions.

EXAMPLE: Thus, if the total contributions of such member during bachelorhood, when accumulated at the rate of 6 per cent. interest, amount to $300, and the ages of himself and wife at the time of marriage are 30 and 20 respectively, then $300 × 2927 $87-8 wife's pension.

B.-IN CONSIDERATION OF THE FUTURE ANNUAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO BE PAYABLE FROM THE DATE

OF MARRIAGE.

(a) In respect of the official income receivable at the time of marriage.

RULE: Multiply the annual contribution by the quantity found in Table B corresponding to

the respective ages of the husband and wife at the time of marriage.

The product will give the annual pension to which the wife will be entitled on her husband's death on account of his contributions in respect of the official income receivable at the time of marriage.

EXAMPLE: Thus, if such last referred-to member's official income at the time of marriage be $1,000 a year, and the annual contribution be $40 (to cease at age 55), and the ages of himself and wife at the time of marriage be 30 and 20 respectively, then

$40 × 3·1888 $127.6 wife's pension.

42

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 18TH JANUARY, 1890.

(b) In respect of increments made to the official income after marriage.

RULE: Multiply the additional contribution by the quantity found in Table B corresponding to the respective ages of the husband and wife at the date of the increment of official income.

The product will give the additional annual pension to which the wife will be entitled on her husband's death in respect of his additional contributions on account of an increase of his official income.

EXAMPLE: Thus, if such last referred-to member's official income be increased by $200 a-year, and the then ages of himself and wife are respectively 35 and 25, then the further pension will be:

$8 × 2·781 $22.25

wife's further pension.

C.-ASSESSMENT OF THE AMOUNT OF THE Pension during THE TIME SUCH MEMBER IS A WIDOWER. When such member becomes a widower, a pension is to be supposed to attach for the benefit of a wife of exactly the same age as the late wife would have been, such pension either remaining unchanged in amount from that to which the late wife was entitled, or becoming subsequently augmented or reduced in the manner provided for by the Rules, according as such member's contributions increase or decrease from that time through variations in his official income.

The amount so determined is to form the basis for estimating the commencing pension to which a second wife becomes entitled at the time of her marriage.

EXAMPLE: Thus, if such last referred-to member becomes a widower, a pension of (87.8+127·6 +22·25) $237-65 is to be supposed to attach for the benefit of a wife of exactly the same age as the late wife would have been, and the pension will continue at that amount until such member's official income (and his consequent contribution) is either increased or decreased. If a further increment of $200 official income be made when such member is aged 40, and his late wife would have been aged 30, then the additional amount of supposed pension would be found by Rule 9 B (b) thus:

$8 × 2·295 = $18·4 = wife's supposed further pension.

Should such member re-marry, the amount to be used as a basis for estimating the commencing pension to which the second wife would be entitled would be either:

$237.65, if no augmentation had been made to the official income;

$256:05, if an augmentation of $200 had been made to the official income at age 40, as above.

NOTE: If there have been more than one wife, care must be taken to use always the age of the last wife.

Second Wife's Pension.

2. A.-PENSION TO WHICH A SECOND WIFE (OF SUCH MEMBER AS ABOVE) BECOMES ENTITLED ON MARRIAGE.

(a) When the second wife at the time of marriage is of the same age as, or older than, the first wife

would have been, if then alive.

RULE: The pension is to commence at the amount as determined by article 9 hereof, and to remain stationary at that amount, unless and until such member's official income be increased or decreased.

(b) When the second wife at the time of marriage is younger than the late wife would have been, if

then alive.

RULE: Take the pension as determined by article 9 hereof, and multiply it by the quantity found in Table C corresponding to the respective ages of the husband and that of his late wife at the time of the husband's second marriage; multiply the last product by the quantity found in Table A corresponding to the respective ages of the husband and his second wife at the time of their marriage. The final product will give the commencing annual pension to which the second wife will be entitled on her husband's death, in respect of his official income at the time of their marriage; and this pension is to remain stationary at that amount, unless and until such member's official income be increased or decreased.

EXAMPLE: Thus, if at the date of re-marriage the age such member's first wife would have been is 35, his own age is 45, and that of the second wife is 30, then, if the pension to which the first wife if alive would have been entitled to, as found by article 9 hereof, be $237-65,

$237.65 × 3·777 × ·2453 $220.18 second wife's commencing pension.

B.-INCREMENTS ON THE Last-found PENSIONS.

The second wives' pensions are to be augmented as often as their husbands have an increase of official income. Such augmentations to be calculated according to the principles and in the manner described in article 9 B (b) hereof, always taking the ages of the husband and wife as they stand at the date of the increase of official income.

Third and subsequent Wives' Pensions.

   3. The rules laid down in articles 9 and 10 will apply, mutatis mutandis, to the case of pensions to a third, or any subsequently taken wife of a member as above. It should be borne in mind that the pension to the last wife, and the age she would have been at the date of the further marriage, are always to be taken as the basis for estimating the commencing pension to which the new wife is entitled.

Abatement of Widows' Pensions.

   4. When the official income of a member (as above) becomes reduced, either by abatement of the ordinary emoluments or by the grant of a permanent superannuation allowance, the widow's pension must be diminished by just the amount it would have been increased had the official income been raised instead of lowered.

   For instance, if such member's official income become reduced by $250 per annum, the existing pension to which, by the foregoing Rules, the wife was entitled should be diminished by the amount of pension corresponding to a contribution of $10 per annum.

   There would be no objection, in principle, to allowing such member to continue his old rate of contri- bution for the remainder of the 35 years, should he desire to do so, and so prevent a diminution of the pension; but, in that case, sufficient independent medical evidence should be produced that the state of his health is such that no financial damage to the Fund may be reasonably entertained. It is probable that a liberal construction of such a Rule would not operate adversely to the general interests, provided that some means be adopted of checking this election in the case of the higher officials, where the pensions would generally be above the average.

Pensions to Widows and Children of such Members as may have joined the Public Services of

other Colonies.

5. The widow's pension should be based upon the estimated acquired interest that such transferred member takes in the then existing Fund at the date of his removal. This interest may, until the financial position of the Fund has been determined by a Valuation be assessed as shown below. occasion of the Valuation then next ensuing, and upon all future Valuations, the interest as above estimated, and Upon the others emerging between the periods of Valuation, should be determined or adjusted as the circumstances disclosed by such investigations may require, and according to the advice of the Actuary or Actuaries reporting.

   6. The following Rules are applicable only up to the time of the first Valuation and they should be re-settled on the occasion of each Valuation by the Actuary, or Actuaries, then reporting :-

IF SUCH MEMBER BE A BACHELOR AT THE TIME OF HIS TRANSFER.

First Wife: His interest in the Fund should be taken as then, and according to Rule 9 A; and this amount should be further accumulated at 6 per cent, compound interest from the time of such transfer until his first marriage: and the pension that the widow thence arising is entitled to should be computed by the same Rule-regard being had to the cessation of further contributions, and to the accretion only of 6 per cent. compound interest upon the estimated assessed interest at the time of transfer.

EXAMPLE: Thus, if the total contributions of such member during bachelorhood and up to the time of transfer amount at interest to $200, and if this sum, when further accumulated at 6 per cent. compound interest, amount to $300 by the time of his first marriage, and if the ages of himself and wife at marriage are 30 and 20 respectively, then $300 × 2927 $87.8

wife's pension.

=

Second Wife: Take the pension as above determined, and multiply it by the quantity found in Table C corresponding to the respective ages of the husband and that of his late wife at the time of the husband's second marriage; multiply this last product by the quantity found in Table A corres- ponding to the respective ages of the husband and his second wife at the time of their marriage (vide art. 1 C).

EXAMPLE: Thus, if at the date of re-marriage the age of such husband's first wife would have been 35, his own age is 45, and that of his second wife is 30, then, if the pension to which the first wife if alive would have been entitled to, as found above, be $87.8, then

$87.8 x 8.777 × 2453. =

=

$81.3 = second wife's pension.

Third, &c., Wife: For a third, or subsequently taken wife, take the pension for the last existing wife

and proceed to adjust it in the manner shown for the case of the second wife.

7. IF SUCH MEMBER BE MARRIED, OR A WIDOWER, AT THE TIME OF HIS TRANSFer.

The widow's pension attaching to his then wife, or his supposed wife (if he be a widower) should be abated by just the amonnt that it would be increased corresponding to the amount of contributions that such member will cease to pay upon transfer from the Public Service of the Colony, and according to the principles laid down in art. 4. Again, this abated pension should be adjusted upon re-marriage, in the manner shown in art. 6, corresponding to the then ages of the husband and wife.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 27.

His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to issue the following Commission to enquire into the working of the Hongkong Observatory.

By Command,

F. FLEMING, Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 18th January, 1890.

[L.S.] G. WILLIAM DES VEUX.

    Whereas it is expedient that a Commission be appointed to enquire into the working of the Hong- kong Observatory with special reference to the following details viz.:-

1. Whether the establishment of the Observatory has effected an improvement on the system of storm warnings which previously existed, and what measures could be taken to secure or to increase improvement in this direction.

2. The causes of failures, if any, in the system of storm warnings as worked from the Observatory.

What causes led to the absence of warning of the storm of October 13-16.

3. The practical advantages to the Community of this Colony obtained from the Observatory as

at present established, and how such advantages may be increased.

:

4. What proportion of the time of the Director and Staff of the Observatory is occupied in securing these practical advantages, as compared with time devoted to the general advancement of

science.

5. Whether the present expenditure on the Observatory is justified in view of the practical advantages above referred to. Whether the provision of a direct cable across the Harbour to secure regularity of communication; and the cost of working and maintaining it, was a justifiable expense; and whether further expenditure in the same direction (e.g. in payments to observers at Bolinao and elsewhere) might be considered desirable in view of the results to be expected from them.

6. Whether the Commission would recommend the continuance of the Observatory, with its present

or any other organisation.

7. Any recommendations the Commission desire to make on the above subjects.

    Now, therefore, I. 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, in Executive Council assembled, do hereby under the powers vested in me by Ordinance 27 of 1886 entitled The Commissioners Powers Ordinance, 1886, appoint you :-

And I do further hereby order and direct that the said Commission shall, for the purpose of making the said enquiry, have all such powers as are vested in the Supreme Court of this Colony or in any Judge thereof on the occasion of any suit or action in respect of the following matters viz.:-

JAPAN.

    NAGASAKI HARBOUR.- -The Leander reports that a large flat stone, with 6 feet of water on it at L.W.S. lies S. by E. (mag.) 56 yards from the Pear-shapel Buoy off the Dry Dock. Shoal water extends considerably to the Northward of a line between Pear-shaped Buoy and Post. Lines 6 and 7 of the China Sea Directory Vol. IV. page 507, are incorrect, as it would be unsafe for a Ship of over 280 feet in length to lay at the Mooring Buoy.

    The Mooring Buoy lies S. 72° E. 317 yards from the centre of the Caisson, and the Pear-shaped Buoy S. 43° W. 115 yards from the Mooring Buoy.

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 ofChina, 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.

GENTLEMEN,

The Directors have now to submit to you a General Statement of the affairs of the Bank, and Balance Sheet for the half-year ending 31st December, 1889.

The net profits for that period, including $70.307.32 balance brought forward from last account, after paying all charges, deducting interest paid and due, and making provision for bad and doubtful accounts, amount to $1,119,310.47, of which after taking out remu- neration to Directors, there remains for appro- priation $1.109,310.47.

From this sum, the Directors recommend the payment of a Dividend of One Pound and Ten Shillings per Share, which at 4/6 will absorb $400,000, and a Bonus of Ten-Shillings per Share which will absorb $133.333.33.

The difference in Exchange between 4/6, the rate at which the Dividend and Bonus are de- clared, and 3/1, the rate of the day, amounts to $234,666.67.

They recommend transferring $200,000 to the Credit of Reserve Fund, which will then stand at $4,600,000.

The Balance $141,310.47 to be carried to New Profit and Loss Account.

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 ofChina, 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.

officer upon peace

All goods forfeited by order of a Magistrate may be sold or disposed of in such manner as the Magistrate may direct, and the proceeds of such sale shall be applied in the like manner as if the proceeds were a fine imposed under the Ordi- nance or Statute on which the proceeding for the forfeiture is founded.

29. In all proceedings under this part of this Ordinance the Magistrate at the hearing shall take in writing a full minute, so far as circumstances permit, (xIII.) of the following matters, viz.:--

(1.) The nature of the complaint or information. (2) The names of the complainant, informant or prosecutor and of the defendant and of the re- spective witnesses on either side.

(3.) The evidence or depositions of the witnesses. (4.) Objections to the admissibility of evidence and whether the same have been allowed or dis- allowed.

Such minute shall, immediately after the close of the case, be handed to the Magistrate's clerk for safe custody.

30. (1.) The Magistrate's clerk shall keep a register of the minutes or memoranda of all the convictions and orders of the Magistrate or Magistrates, and of such other proceedings as are directed by the rules contained in the 3rd Schedule hereto to be registered, and shall keep the same in the form (LX.) in the 2nd Schedule hereto and with the particulars prescribed in the said form or rules.

(2.) Such register, and also any extract from such register certified by the clerk keeping the same to be a true extract, shall be prima facie evidence of the matters entered therein for the purpose of informing a Magistrate or the Magistrates, but nothing in this section shall dis- pense with the legal proof of a previous conviction for an offence when required to be proved against a person charged with another offence.

(3.) The entries relating to each minute, memo- randum or proceeding shall be either entered or signed by the Magistrate or one of the Magistrates constituting the Court by or before whom the conviction or order or proceeding referred to in the minute or memorandum was made or had.

(4.) Every sum paid to the Magistrate's clerk in ac- cordance with this Ordinance, and the appropriation of such sum shall be entered and authenticated in such man- ner directed by the rules in the 3rd Schedule hereto.

proved the offence was in the particular case of so trifling a nature that it is inexpedient to inflict any punishment, or any other than a nominal punishment,-

(1.) The Magistrate without proceeding to conviction, may dismiss the complaint or information (xxvI., XLV.), and if he thinks fit, may order the de- fendant to pay such damages, not exceeding ten dollars, and such costs of the proceeding, or either of them, as the Magistrate thinks reason- able; or,

(2.) The Magistrate upon convicting (XXI.) the

defendant may discharge him conditionally on' his giving security, (v.), with or without sure- ties, to appear for sentence when called upon, or to be of good behaviour, and either without payment of damages and costs, or subject to the payment of such damages and costs, or either of them, as the Magistrate thinks reasonable.

32. Where a defendant is fined a sum not exceeding five dollars and the same is not forthwith paid the Magistrate inflicting such fine may order the defendant to be searched and if the defendant on being searched is found to have on his person any sum of money equalling or exceeding the amount of his fine, it shall be lawful for the Magistrate upon oath made to him of the fact by any person who was present when the defendant was searched to order that so much of the said sum of money as may be sufficient to satisfy the said fine be forfeited by the defendant and that the defendant be thereupon discharged from custody.

33. (1.) Subject as in this Ordinance mentioned, and notwithstanding any enactment to the contrary, where a Magistrate has authority under this Ordinance, or under any other Ordinance or Statute whether past or future, to impose imprisonment or to impose a fine for an offence punishable on summary conviction, such Magistrate may, in the case of imprisonment, impose the same without hard labour, and reduce the prescribed period thereof, or do either of such acts.

(2.) Where in the case either of imprisonment or a fine there is prescribed a requirement for the offender to enter into his recognisance and to find sureties for keeping the peace, and observing some other condition, or to do any of such things, the Magistrate may dispense with any such requirement or any part thereof.

(3.) Where a Magistrate has authority under an Ordinance or Statute other than this Ordinance, whether past or future, to impose imprisonment for an offence punishable on summary conviction, and has not authority to impose a fine for that offence, such Magistrate when adjudicating on such offence may notwithstanding, if he thinks that the justice of the case will be better met by a fine than by imprisonment, impose a fine not exceeding two hundred dollars and not being of such an amount as will subject the offender under the provisions of this Ordinance, in default of payment of the fine, to any greater term of imprisonment than that to which he is liable under the Ordinance or Statute authorising the said imprisonment.

(4.) Whenever any person shall be convicted sum- marily before a Magistrate of any offence against the provisions of any Ordinance or Statute in force in the Colony whereby a minimum amount of fine or term of imprisonment is prescribed by way of punishment for such offence, it shall be lawful for the Magistrate if he shall in his discretion think fit to award a less amount of fine or term of imprisonment than that prescribed by way of minimum punishment as aforesaid or to award in certain cases a merely nominal punishment notwithstanding anything in such Ordinance or Statute to the contrary.

34. (1.) Where a power is given by any future Ordi- nance or Statute to a Magistrate of requiring any person to do or abstain from doing any act or thing other than the payment of money, or of requiring any act or thing to be done or left undone other than the payment of money, and no mode is prescribed of enforcing such requisition, a Magistrate may exercise such power by an order or orders, and may annex to any such order any conditions as to time or mode of action which he may think just, and may suspend or rescind any such order on such under- taking being given or condition being performed as he may think just, and generally may make such arrangement for carrying into effect such power as to him seems meet.

(2.) A person making default in complying with an order of a Magistrate in relation to any matter arising under any future Ordinance or Statute other than the payment of money shall be punished in the prescribed manner, or if no punishment is prescribed, may, in the discretion of the Magistrate, be ordered to pay a sum not exceeding five dollars for every day during which he is in default, or to be imprisoned until he has remedied his default.

Provided that a person shall not, for non-compliance with the requisition of a Magistrate whether made by one or more orders, to do or abstain from doing any act or thing, be liable under this section to imprisonment for a period or periods amounting in the aggregate to more than two months, or to the payment of any sums exceeding in the

aggregate one hundred dollars.

35. The Magistrate by whose conviction or order any sum is adjudged to be paid may do all or any of the fol- lowing things, viz.:-

(1.) Allow time for the payment of the said sum. (2.) Direct payment to be made of the said sum by

instalments, and

(3.) Direct that the person liable to pay the said sum shall be at liberty to give to the satisfaction of a Magistrate or such person as may be specified by the Magistrate adjudging the money to be paid, security with or without a surety or sureties for the payment of the said sum or of any instal- ment thereof, and such security may be given and enforced in manner provided by this Ordi-

nance.

Where a sum is directed to be paid by instalments and default is made in the payment of any one instalment, the same proceedings may be taken as if default had been made in payment of all the instalments then remaining unpaid. A Magistrate directing the payment of a sum or of an instalment of a sum may direct such payment to be made at such time or times, and in such place or places and to such person or persons, as may be specified by such Magistrate and every person not being the Magistrate's clerk to whom any such sum or instalment is paid, shall as soon as may be account for and pay over the same to such clerk. (XV. to XXI.).

36. Where any property has been taken from a person charged before a Magistrate with an offence punishable either on information to the Court or on summary convic- tion, a report shall be made by the Police to the Magistrate of the fact of such property having been taken from the accused or defendant and of the particulars thereof and the Magistrate shall, if of opinion that the property or any portion thereof can be returned consistently with the inte- rests of justice and with the safe custody of the accused or defendant, direct such property or any portion thereof to be returned to the accused or defendant or such other per- son as he may direct.

37. Every person who shall aid, abet, counsel or procure the commission of any offence which is or hereafter shall be punishable by a Magistrate on summary conviction shall be liable to be proceeded against and convicted for the same either together with the principal offender or be- fore or after his conviction and shall be liable to the same punishment and penalties as such principal is or shall be by law liable.

38. A Magistrate shall not, by cumulative sentences of imprisonment (other than for default of finding sureties) to take effect in succession in respect of several assaults committed on the same occasion, impose on any person imprisonment for the whole exceeding six months; but nothing in this section shall be deemed to affect the pro- visions hereinafter contained in section 83.

39. Where a conviction (xvI.) adjudges a fine to be paid, or where an order requires the payment of a sum of money and by the Ordinance or Statute past or future authorising such conviction or order such fine or sum of money is to be levied upon the goods and chattels of the defendant by distress and sale thereof, and also in cases where by the Ordinance or Statute past or future in that behalf no mode of raising or levying such fine or sum of money, or of enforcing the payment of the same, is stated or provided, it shall be lawful for a Magistrate to issue his warrant of distress (XL., XLI.) for the purpose of levying

40. Where a Magistrate shall issue any such warrant of distress it shall be lawful for him to suffer the defendant to go at large, or by a written warrant in that behalf, (LIV.) or verbally to order the defendant to be kept and de- tained in safe custody until return shall be made to such warrant of distress, unless such defendant shall give suffi- cient security, by recognisance or otherwise, to the satis- faction of such Magistrate, for his appearance before a Ma- gistrate at the time and place appointed for the return of such warrant of distress: Provided always, that in all cases where a defendant shall give security by recognisance as aforesaid, and shall not afterwards appear at the time and place in such recognisance mentioned, then the Magistrate then present may forthwith declare the same to be estreated in manner hereinafter provided.

41. If at the time and place appointed for the return of any

such warrant of distress the constable who shall have had the execution of the same, shall return (XLIX.) that he could find no goods or chattels or no sufficient goods or chattels whereon he could levy the sum or sums therein mentioned, together with the costs of or occasioned by the levying of the same it shall be lawful for the Magistrate before whom the same shall be returned to issue his warrant of commitment (LIII.) under his hand and seal, directed to the same or any other constable, reciting the conviction or order shortly, the issuing of the warrant of distress, and the return there- to, and requiring such constable to convey such defendant to prison, and there to deliver him to the Superintendent thereof, and requiring such Superintendent to receive the defendant and to imprison him, or to imprison him and keep him to hard labour, in such manner and for such time as shall have been directed and appointed by the Ordinance or Statute on which the conviction or order mentioned in such warrant of distress was founded, unless the sum or sums adjudged to be paid, and all costs and charges of the distress, (the amount thereof being ascertained and stated in such commitment), shall be sooner paid.

42. Whenever it shall be returned to a warrant of dis- tress issued for the recovery of a fine or sum of money ordered to be paid under a conviction or order that no sufficient goods of the party against whom such warrant shall have been issued can be found, and by the Ordinance or Statute under the provisions of which such conviction or order was made, no further remedy or punishment is provided for the non-payment of such fine or sum of money, it shall nevertheless be lawful for a Magistrate if he shall think fit, by his warrant (LIII.) as aforesaid, to commit the defendant to prison for any term not exceeding three calendar months with or without hard labour unless the fine or sum adjudged to be paid, and all costs and charges of the distress, (the amount thereof being ascertained and stated in such com- mitment) shall be sooner paid.

43. In all cases where the Ordinance or Statute by virtue of which a conviction for a fine or an order for the payment of money is made, makes no provision for such fine or sum being levied by distress, but directs that if the same be not paid forthwith, or within a certain time therein mentioned, or to be mentioned in such conviction or order, the defendant shall be imprisoned, or imprisoned and kept to hard labour, for a certain time, unless such fine or sum shall be sooner paid, in every such case such fine or sum shall not be levied by distress; but if the defendant do not pay the same, together with costs, if awarded, forthwith, or at the time specified in such conviction or order for the

payment of the same, it shall be lawful for a Magistrate to issue his warrant of commitment (LI., LII.) under his hand and seal, requiring the constable or constables to whom the same shall be directed to take and convey such defendant to prison, and there to deliver him to the Superin- tendent thereof, and requiring such Superintendent to receive such defendant and to imprison him, or to imprison him and keep him to hard labour as the case may be, for such time as the Ordinance or Statute on which such con- viction or order is founded as aforesaid shall direct, unless the fine, sum or sums adjudged to be paid, shall be sooner paid.

44. Where a conviction does not order the payment of any fine, but that the defendant be imprisoned, or impri- soned and kept to hard labour, for his offence, or where an order is not for the payment of money, but for the doing of some other act, and directs that in case of the defend- ant's neglect or refusal to do such act he shall be impri- soned, or imprisoned and kept to hard labour, and the de- fendant neglects or refuses to do such act, in every such case it shall be lawful for a Magistrate to issue his warrant of commitment (LV., LVI.) under his hand and seal, re- quiring the constable or constables to whom the same shall be directed to take and convey such defendant to prison and there to deliver him to the Superintendent thereof, and requiring such Superintendent to receive such defendant and to imprison him, or to imprison him and keep him to hard labour, as the case may be, for such time as the Ordinance or Statute on which such conviction or order is founded as aforesaid shall direct; and in all such cases, where by such conviction or order any sum for costs shall be adjudged to be paid by the defendant to the com- plainant or prosecutor, such sum may, if the Magistrate shall think fit, be levied by warrant of distress (XLII., XLIII.) in manner aforesaid, and in default of distress the defendant may, if such Magistrate shall think fit, be also committed to prison (LVIII.) there to be kept for any time not exceeding one calendar month with or without hard labour to commence at the termination of the imprison- ment he shall then be undergoing, unless such sum for costs, and all costs and charges of the said distress shall be sooner paid.

45. Where a Magistrate shall upon any complaint or information as aforesaid adjudge the defendant to be im- prisoned, and such defendant shall then be in prison under- going imprisonment upon a conviction for any other offence the warrant of commitment for such subsequent offence shall in every such case be forthwith delivered to the gaoler to whom the same shall be directed and it shall be lawful for the Magistrate issuing the same, if he shall think fit, to award and order therein and thereby that the im- prisonment for such subsequent offence shall commence at the expiration of the imprisonment to which such defendant shall liave been previously adjudged or sentenced.

46. In all cases where any person against whom a warrant of distress shall issue as aforesaid shall pay or tender to the constable having the execution of the same the sum or sums in such warrant mentioned, together with the amount of the expenses of such distress up to the time of such payment or tender, such constable shall cease to execute the same; and in all cases in which any person shall be imprisoned as aforesaid for non-payment of any fine or other sum he may pay or cause to be paid to the Superintendent of the prison in which he shall be so im- prisoned the sum in the warrant of commitment mentioned, together with the amount of the costs therein mentioned, and the said Superintendent shall receive the same, and shall thereupon discharge such person, if he be in his custody for no other matter.

47. The following regulations shall apply with respect to warrants of distress issued by a Magistrate under this Ordinance :-

(1.) A warrant of distress shall be executed by or

under the direction of a constable.

(2.) Save in so far as the person against whom the dis- tress is levied otherwise consents in writing, the distress shall be sold by public auction and five clear days at the least shall intervene between the making of the distress and the sale and when written consent is so given as aforesaid the sale may be made in accordance with such consent.

Special

provision as

to warrants of commitment for non- payment of money and as to warrants of distress. (42 & 43 V.

c. 49, s. 21.)

(3.) Subject as aforesaid, the distress shall be sold

within the period fixed by the warrant and if no period is so fixed, then within the period of four- teen days from the date of the making of the dis- tress unless the sum for which the warrant was issued and also the charges of taking and keeping the said distress are sooner paid.

(4.) Subject to any directions to the contrary given by the warrant of distress, when the distress is levied on household goods, the goods shall not except with the consent in writing of the person against whom the distress is levied be removed from the house until the day of sale, but so much of the goods shall be impounded as are in the opinion of the person executing the warrant suffi- cient to satisfy the distress by affixing to the articles impounded a conspicuous mark; and any person removing any goods so marked or defacing or removing the said mark shall on summary conviction be liable to a fine not exceeding twenty- five dollars.

(5.) Where a.person charged with the execution of a warrant of distress wilfully retains from the pro- duce of any goods sold to satisfy the distress or otherwise exacts any greater costs and charges than those to which he is for the time being en- titled by law or makes any improper charge he shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding twenty-five dollars.

(6.) A written account (L.) of the costs and charges incurred in respect of the execution of any warrant of distress shall be sent by the constable charged with the execution of the warrant as soon as practicable to the Magistrate's clerk; and it shall be lawful for the person upon whose goods the distress was levied within one month after the levy of the distress to inspect such account with- out fee or reward at any reasonable time to be appointed by a Magistrate and to take a copy of such account.

(7.) A Constable charged with the execution of a war- rant of distress shall cause the distress to be sold and may deduct out of the amount realized by such sale all costs and charges actually incurred in effecting such sale and shall render to the owner the surplus (if any) after retaining the amount for which the warrant was issued and the proper costs and charges of the execution of the

warrant.

(8.) Where a person pays or tenders to the constable charged with the execution of a warrant of dis- tress the sum mentioned in the warrant or pro- duces the receipt for the same of the Magistrate's clerk and also pays the amount of the costs and charges of such distress up to the time of such payment or tender, the constable shall not execute the warrant.

48. (1.) A Magistrate to whom application is made either to issue a warrant of distress for any sum adjudged to be paid by a conviction or order, or to issue a warrant for committing a person to prison for non-payment of a sum of money adjudged to be paid by a conviction, or in the case of a sum not a civil debt by an order, or for default of sufficient distress to satisfy any such sum, may, if he deem it expedient so to do, postpone the issue of such warrant until such time and on such conditions, if any, as to him may seem just.

(2.) The wearing apparel and bedding of a person and his family, and to the value of twenty-five dollars the tools and implements of his trade, shall not be taken under a distress issued by a Magistrate.

(3.) Where on application to a Magistrate to issue a warrant for committing a person to prison for non-payment of a sum adjudged to be paid by a conviction or in the case of a sum not a civil debt by an order or for default of sufficient distress to satisfy any such sum, it appears to the Magistrate to whom the application is made that either by payment of part of the said sum, whether in the shape of instalments or otherwise, or by the net proceeds of the distress, the amount of the sum so adjudged has been reduced to such an extent that the unsatisfied balance, if it had constituted the original amount adjudged to be paid by the conviction or order, would have subjected the de-

fendant to a maximum term of imprisonment less than the term of imprisonment to which he is liable under such conviction or order, the Magistrate shall, by his warrant of commitment, revoke the term of imprisonment, and order the defendant to be imprisoned for a term not ex- ceeding such less maximum term instead of the term ori- ginally mentioned in the conviction or order. (xXIV., LIX.)

Recognisances, &c.

49. In all cases punishable on summary conviction the Magistrate may upon conviction of the defendant either in addition to or in lieu of any other punishment order the defendant to enter into a recognisance with two sufficient sureties for his good behaviour and in such sum and for such term as the Magistrate shall think fit so as such sum do not exceed two hundred dollars nor such term twelve months. And the Magistrate may order the defendant in default of compliance with such last mentioned order to be imprisoned for a period not exceeding six months.

50. The power of a Magistrate upon complaint of any person, to adjudge a person to enter into a recognisance and find sureties to keep the peace or to be of good beha- viour towards such first-mentioned person, (XXVIII.) shall be exercised by an order upon complaint, (XXVII.) and the provisions of this Ordinance shall apply accordingly, and the complainant and defendant and witnesses may be called and examined and cross-examined, and the complainant and defendant shall be subject to costs, as in the case of any other complaint.

The Magistrate may order the defendant, in default of compliance with such last mentioned order, to be impri- soned for a period not exceeding six months.

51. Where a person has been committed to prison by a Magistrate for default in finding sureties, either Magistrate may on application (XXXII.) made to him in manner di- rected by the rules in the 3rd Schedule hereto by such person or by some one acting on his behalf, inquire into the case of the person so committed, and if upon new evidence produced to such Magistrate or proof of a change of circumstances the Magistrate thinks fit having regard to all the circumstances of the case, that it is just so to do, he may reduce the amount for which it is proposed the sureties or surety should be bound, or dispense with the sureties or surety, or otherwise deal with the case as he may think just. (XXXIII.)

52. When a Magistrate has fixed, as respects any re- cognisance, the amount in which the principal and the sureties (if any) are to be bound, the recognisance, not- withstanding anything in this or any past Ordinance or Statute need not be entered into before such Magistrate but may subject to the rules in the 3rd Schedule hereto be entered into by the parties before the other Magis- trate or before the Magistrate's clerk or before a Su- perintendent or Inspector of Police or other officer of Police of equal or superior rank or where any of the parties is in prison before the Superintendent thereof and there- upon all the consequences of law shall ensue and the pro- visions of this Ordinance with respect to recognisances taken before a Magistrate shall apply as if the recognisance had been entered into before a Magistrate as heretofore by law required.

53. (1.) A person shall give security under this part of the Ordinance, whether as principal or surety, either by the deposit of money with the Magistrate's clerk or by an oral or written acknowledgment (V., XXXIV.) of the under- taking or condition by which and of the sum for which he is bound and evidence of such security may be provided by entry thereof in the register under this Ordinance of the proceedings of the Magistrates.

(2.) Any sum which may become due in pursuance of a security under this part of the Ordinance from a surety shall be recoverable summarily in manner directed by this Ordinance with respect to a civil debt on complaint by a constable or by the Magistrate's clerk or by some other person authorised for the purpose by a Magistrate.

(3.) A Magistrate may enforce payment of any sum due by a principal in pursuance of a security under this part of the Ordinance which appears to him to be forfeited, in like manner as if that sum were adjudged to be paid as a fine, if the security was given for a sum adjudged by a conviction (XLVIII.), and in any other case in like man- ner as if it were a sum adjudged to be paid as a civil debt; provided that before a warrant of distress for the sum is

Any sum paid by a surety on behalf of his principal in respect of a security under this part of the Ordinance, together with all costs, charges and expenses incurred by such surety in respect of that security, shall be deemed a civil debt due to him from the principal, and may be re- covered before a Magistrate in manner directed by this Ordinance with respect to the recovery of a civil debt which is recoverable summarily.

(5.) Where security is given under this part of the Ordi- nance for payment of a sum of money, the payment of such sum shall be enforced by means of such security in substi- tution for other means of enforcing such payment.

54. (1.) Where a recognisance (v.) is conditioned for the appearance of a person before a Magistrate or for his doing some other matter or thing to be done before or by order of a Magistrate or in a proceeding before a Magis- trate, such Magistrate if the said recognisance appears to him to be forfeited, may declare the recognisance to be forfeited and enforce payment of the sum due under such recognisance in the same manner as if the sum were a fine adjudged by a Magistrate to be paid and the amount of the same were ascertained by a conviction (XLVI.): Provided that at any time before the sale of goods under a warrant of distress for the said sum, a Magistrate may cancel or mitigate the forfeiture (xxxI.) upon the person liable ap- plying and giving security (xxxv.) to the satisfaction of the Magistrate for the future performance of the condition of the recognisance, and paying or giving security for pay- ment of the costs incurred in respect of the forfeiture, or upon such other conditions as the Magistrate may think just.

(2.) Where a recognisance (XXVIII.) conditioned to keep the peace or to be of good behaviour, or not to do or commit some act or thing, has been entered into by any person as principal or surety before a Magistrate, either Magistrate. upon proof of the conviction of the person bound as principal by such recognisance of any offence which is in law a breach of the condition of the same, may by conviction adjudge such recognisance to be forfeited, and adjudge the persons bound thereby, whether as principal or sureties, or any of such persons, to pay the sums for which they are respectively bound (XXIX., XXX., XLVII.)

   The Exhibition, to be opened in January, 1891, will be managed by a Commission, His Excellency the Governor being at the head. This Commission has already been constituted by a Colonial Law.

   A Committee has been formed in London, representing Jamaica interests in the United Kingdom, to co-operate with the organizing body in Jamaica. The Committee, as at present constituted, is given above, the consent of Lord Knutsford to act as Honorary President being especially gratifying to all connected with the Colony. That the scheme has taken practical shape is proved by the fact that in the Colony alone over £16,000 has already been guaranteed, out of a total of £20,000 required.

   The Exhibition will comprise specimens of all Jamaica products: Sugar of all qualities and its allied industry of Rum manufacture; Liqueurs, Cordials, &c.; Coffee; Oranges, Pine Apples and Fruits of all kinds; Pimento, Cacao, Annatto; Woods in all degrees of preparation for use; Spices, Con- diments, &c.; Fibres and Fibrous Materials; Cinchona Bark, Oils, Essential Oils, Perfumes, &c.; Medicinal and Economic substances; Works of Art, Pictures, Fancy Articles and Ornamental Work; Horses, Cattle and Live Stock of all kinds. The Botany and Geology of the Island will also be fully illustrated.

There will also be exhibited specimens of goods imported into Jamaica from all countries.

It is hoped that all parts of the Empire will add to the interest and completeness of this exposi- tion by sending specimens and ornamental trophies illustrative of their productions.

The attention of Merchants and Manufacturers in the United Kingdom is especially invited. English goods find a ready market in a Colony of nearly 650,000 people. It is also desired to show the advance of science in manufacturing tropical products. The Engineering Firms and Manufacturers of Machinery are requested to give their aid by exhibiting plans, drawings, models and specimens, so far as convenient, of actual machinery connected with such manufactures.

Shipowners are earnestly requested to co-operate by offering to take out specimens free of freight; and all who are interested in the commerce and productive prosperity of Jamaica are desired to give their help to an undertaking which must be beneficial to the Colony and all concerned in its fortunes.

As the Exhibition will be made as attractive as possible, the question of hotel accommodation for visitors from all parts of the British Empire, from the Continent of Europe, and the United States and South America, will be considered, and details published in good time.

Communications and applications for forms and regulations to be addressed as early as possible to the Chairman, 1, Fen Court, London, E.C.

188 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 22ND FEBRUARY, 1890.

No. 10.

EDUCATION DEPARTMENT, HONGKONG, 28th January, 1890.

   SIR, I have the honour to forward, under this enclosure, the usual tabulated summary of the amounts earned, during the year 1889, by the various Grant-in-Aid Schools of the Colony under the Grant-in-Aid Scheme of 1883, and I beg to recommend that, if the reduction which I find necessary is approved by His Excellency the Governor, and if the accounts I enclose are found correct by the Audit Office, a warrant be issued for the payinent, through the Colonial Treasury, of the Grants payable, as hereunder recommended, and amounting in the aggregate (after a reduction of 5.3 per cent.) to $18,737.12.

   2. The sum nominally earned by the 69 Schools examined under the conditions of the Grant-in- Aid Scheme at the close of the year 1889, amounts to a total of $19,785.12. But, as the sum voted for Grants-in-Aid and included in the Estimates for 1890 amounts only to $19,000 and has already been drawn up to the amount of $258.25, the balance actually available for Grants-in-Aid amounts to $18,741.75, so that the Grants-in-Aid nominally earned by those schools in 1889 exceed the balance in hand by $1,043.97.

   3. I beg to recommend, therefore, that the amounts nominally earned by the Grant-in-Aid Schools in 1889 be subjected to a pro rata reduction of 5.3 per cent., amounting to $1,048.60, which will reduce the amount payable to these Schools to $18,737.12 and thus bring the expenditure within the limits of the amount provided by, and available under, the Estimates for 1890, leaving in hand a balance of $4.63.

   4. For this recommendation there are several precedents on record. From C.S.O 439 of 1883, it will be seen that in the year 1883 the Grants, nominally earned by these Schools in 1882, were subjected to a reduction of 14·33 per cent., and C.S.O. 291 of 1888 will show that the Grants-in-Aid nominally earned in 1887 were subjected to a reduction of 1 per cent.

   5. The reason for this procedure is that, in Despatch No. 211, of 30th September, 1882, the Secretary of State, Lord KIMBERLEY, laid down the rule, "that the sum of money voted each year for Grants-in-Aid ought not under any circumstances to be exceeded," and the justice of the proposed re- duction will appear from the fact that the Grant-in-Aid Scheme, under which these Grants have been earned, makes distinct provision for a possible reduction of Grants nominally earned, by laying down the Rule (No. 6), that "the Government will be guided......by the amount of money at its disposal for educational purposes." At examination time I informed each Manager that a reduction would no doubt be necessary this year.

   6. The increase in the above expenditure required for Grants-in-Aid is to be accounted for in the first instance by the increase which has happily taken place in 1889 in the number of Schools and scholars placed under the Grant-in-Aid Scheme, and secondly in a healthful increase of the cultivation. of the higher subjects of an English education, manifested by a larger number of scholars taking up the subjects for which special Grants are paid, viz., Algebra, Euclid, Physical Geography, Animal Physiology and Book-keeping. Details concerning the progress which has thus been made, and which has caused the increase in the expenditure incurred under the head of Grants-in-Aid, will be submitted in the usual Annual Report on Education, which is now in course of preparation.

   7. I now beg to recommend that the enclosed accounts be audited, as usual, by the Audit Office and that, when the accounts are approved or revised, a warrant be issued for the sum of $18,737.12, to be disbursed by the Colonial Treasury.

8. It has been customary, since 1884, for the Inspector of Schools to supply the Colonial Trea- surer with a detailed list of the payees and amounts due under the Grants-in-Aid account when approved by the Audit Office, and to supply the Managers, Teachers and Assistant-teachers, of the Grant-in-Aid Schools concerned, with warrants for the respective payments due in each case, which warrants are then paid on presentation at the Treasury, and retained there as vouchers of the payments made This mode of payment has all along worked satisfactorily, and I propose to follow the same plan in the present case.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Hon. F. FLEMING, C.M.G.,

Colonial Secretary.

E. J. EITEL, Ph. D., Inspector of Schools.

[EREAS by the Extradition Acts, 1870 and 1873, it was amongst other things enacted that, where an arrangement has been made with any foreign State with respect to the surrender to such State of any fugitive criminals, Her Majesty may, by Order in Council, direct that the said Acts shall apply in the case of such foreign State; and that Her Majesty may, by the same or any subse- quent Order, limit the operation of the Order, and restrict the same to fugitive criminals who are in or suspected of being in the part of Her Majesty's dominions specified in the Order, and render the oper- ation thereof subject to such conditions, exceptions, and qualifications as may be deemed expedient; and that if, by any law made after the passing of the Act of 1870 by the Legislature of any British possession, provision is made for carrying into effect within such possession the surrender of fugitive criminals who are in or suspected of being in such British possession, Her Majesty may, by the Order in Council applying the said Acts in the case of any foreign State, or by any subsequent Order, suspend the operation within any such British possession of the said Acts, or of any part thereof so far as it relates to such foreign State, and so long as such Law continues in force there and no longer: And whereas by an Act of the Parliament of Canada passed in 1886, and entitled "An Act respecting the Extradition of Fugitive Criminals," provision is made for carrying into effect within the Dominion the surrender of fugitive criminals:

And whereas by an Order of Her Majesty the Queen in Council, dated the seventeenth day of November, 1888, it was directed that the operation of the Extradition Acts, 1870 and 1873, should be suspended within the Dominion of Canada so long as the provisions of the said Act of the Parlia- ment of Canada of 1886 should continue in force and no longer;

And whereas a Treaty was concluded on the twenty-seventh day of October, one thousand eight hundred and eighty-eight, between Her Majesty and the President of the Republic of Colombia, for the mutual extradition of fugitive criminals, which Treaty is in the terms following:-

HER Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and his Excellency the President of the Republic of Colombia, having judged it expedient, with a view to the better 'administration of justice, and to the prevention of crime within the two countries and their jurisdic- tions, that persons charged with or convicted of the crimes or offences hereinafter enumerated, and being fugitives from justice, should, under certain circumstances, be reciprocally delivered up, have named as their Plenipotentiaries to conclude a Treaty, that is to say:

  Her Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, William John Dickson, Esquire, Her Minister Resident to the Republic of Colombia; and

His Excellency the President of the Republic of Colombia, Vicente Restrepo, Minister for Foreign Affairs of the said Republic;

"ARTICLE V.

   "The extradition shall not take place if, subsequently to the commission of the crime, or the institution of the penal prosecution or the conviction thereon, exemption from prosecution or punish- ment has been acquired by lapse of time, according to the laws of the State applied to.

"ARTICLE VI.

   "A fugitive criminal shall not be surrendered if the offence in respect of which his surrender is demanded is one of a political character, or if he prove that the requisition for his surrender has, in fact, been made with a view to try or punish him for an offence of a political character.

"ARTICLE VII.

"A person surrendered can in no case be kept in prison, or be brought to trial, in the State to which the surrender has been made, for any other crime, or on account of any other matters, than those for which the extradition shall have taken place, until he has been restored, or has had an oppor- tunity of returning, to the State by which he has been surrendered.

"This stipulation does not apply to crimes committed after the extradition.

"ARTICLE VIII.

"The requisition for extradition shall be made through the Diplomatic Agents of the High Con- tracting Parties respectively.

   The requisition for the extradition of an accused person must be accompanied by a warrant of arrest issued by the competent authority of the State requiring the extradition, and by such evidence as, according to the laws of the place where the accused is found, would justify his arrest if the crime had been committed there.

"If the requisition relates to, a person already convicted, it must be accompanied by the sentence. of condemnation passed against the convicted person by the competent Court of the State that makes the requisition for extradition.

"A sentence passed in contumaciam is not to be deemed a conviction, but a person so sentenced may be dealt with as an accused person.

"ARTICLE IX.

"If the requisition for extradition be in accordance with the foregoing stipulations, the competent authorities of the State applied to shall proceed to the arrest of the fugitive.

"ARTICLE X.

"A fugitive criminal may be apprehended under a warrant issued by any Police Magistrate, Justice of the Peace, or other competent authority in either country, on such information or complaint, and such evidence, or after such proceedings as would, in the opinion of the authority issuing the warrant, justify the issue of a warrant if the crime had been committed, or the person convicted, in that part of the dominions of the two Contracting Parties in which the Magistrate, Justice of the Peace, or other competent authority excercises jurisdiction; provided, however, that in the United Kingdom the accused shall, in such case, be sent as speedily as possible before a Police Magistrate in London. He shall, in accordance with this Article, be discharged, as well in Colombia as in the United Kingdom, if, within the term of thirty days a requisition for extradition shall not have been made by the Diplomatic Agent of his country, in accordance with the stipulations of this Treaty.

"The same rule shall apply to the cases of persons accused or convicted of any of the crimes or offences specified in this Treaty, and committed on the high seas on board any vessel of either country which may come into a port of the other.

"ARTICLE XI.

"The extradition shall take place only if the evidence be found sufficient according to the laws of the State applied to, either to justify the committal of the prisoner for trial, in case the crime had been committed in the territory of the same State, or to prove that the prisoner is the identical person con- victed by the Courts of the State which makes the requisition, and that the crime of which he has been convicted is one in respect of which extradition could, at the time of such conviction, have been granted by the State applied to; and no criminal shall be surrendered until after the expiration of fifteen days from the date of his committal to prison to await the warrant for his surrender.

"ARTICLE XII.

  "In the examinations which they have to make in accordance with the foregoing stipulations, the authorities of the State applied to shall admit as valid evidence the sworn depositions or statements of witnesses taken in the other State, or copies thereof, and likewise the warrants and sentences issued therein, and certificates of, or judicial documents stating, the fact of a conviction, provided the same are authenticated as follows:-

1. A warrant must purport to be signed by a Judge, Magistrate, or officer of the other State. "2. Depositions or affirmations, or the copies thereof, must purport to be certified under the hand of a Judge, Magistrate, or officer of the other State, to be the original depositions or affirmations, or to be true copies thereof, as the case may require.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST MARCH, 1890.

225

"3. A certificate of, or judicial document stat ag, the fact of a conviction must purport to be certified by a Judge, Magistrate, or officer of the other State.

 "4. In every case, such warrant, deposition, affirmation, copy, certificate, or judicial document must be authenticated either by the oath of some witness, or by being sealed with the official seal of the Minister of Justice, or some other Minister of the other State; but any other mode of authentica- tion for the time being permitted by law where the examination is taken may be substituted for the foregoing.

"ARTICLE XIII.

"If the individual claimed by one of the two High Contracting Parties in pursuance of the pre- sent Treaty should be also claimed by one or several other Powers, on account of other crimes or offences committed upon their respective territories, his extradition shall be granted to that State whose demand is earliest in date.

"ARTICLE XIV.

"If sufficient evidence for the extradition be not produced within two months from the date of the apprehension of the fugitive, or within such further time as the State applied to, or the proper Tribunal thereof, shall direct, the fugitive shall be set at liberty.

"ARTICLE XV.

All articles seized which were in the possession of the person to be surrendered at the time of his apprehension shall, if the competent authority of the State applied to for the extradition has ordered the delivery of such articles, be given up when the extradition takes place; and the said delivery shall extend not merely to the stolen articles, but to everything that may serve as a proof of the crime.

"ARTICLE XVI.

"All expenses connected with extradition shall be borne by the demanding State.

"ARTICLE XVII.

"The stipulations of the present Treaty shall be applicable to the Colonies and foreign possessions of Her Britannic Majesty, so far as the laws for the time being in force in such Colonies and foreign possessions respectively will allow.

"The requisition for the surrender of a fugitive criminal who has taken refuge in any of such Colonies or foreign possessions shall be made to the Governor or chief authority of such Colony or possession by the chief Consular officer of the Republic of Colombia in such Colony or possession.

"Such requisition may be disposed of, subject always, as nearly as may be, and so far as the law of such Colony or foreign possession will allow, to the provisions of this Treaty, by the said Governor or chief authority, who, however, shall be at liberty either to grant the surrender or to refer the matter to his Government.

  "Her Britannic Majesty shall, however, be at liberty to make special arrangements in the British Colonies and foreign possessions for the surrender of Colombian criminals who may take refuge within such Colonies and foreign possessions, on the basis, as nearly as may be, and so far as the law of such Colony or foreign possession will allow, of the provisions of the present Treaty.

66

Requisitions for the surrender of a fugitive criminal emanating from any Colony or foreign possession of Her Britannic Majesty shall be governed by the rules laid down in the preceding Articles of the present Treaty.

"ARTICLE XVIII.

  "The present Treaty shall come into force ten days after its publication, in conformity with the forms prescribed by the laws of the High Contracting Parties. It may be terminated by either of the High Contracting Parties by a notice not exceeding one year and not less than six months.

The Treaty, after receiving the approval of the Congress of Colombia, shall be ratified, and the ratifications shall be exchanged at Bagota as soon as possible.

  "In witness whereof the respective Plenipotentiaries have signed the same, and have affixed thereto their respective seals.

This Standard Work on theChinese 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.
