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 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."

The following report on the recurrence of droughts and annual rainfall in Hongkong is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, longkong, 16th January, 1892.

W. M. GOODMAN, Acting Colonial Secretary.

  H.K.O. No. 80.

HONGKONG OBSERVATORY,

7th September, 1891.

SIR,-In accordance with instructions given in your letter No. 1355 of the 31st July ultimo, I have the honour to enclose a table of rainfall in Hongkong during this and thirteen previous years.

   2. In my letter of the 5th ultimo, (H.K.O. No. 72) I have explained why I cannot go back any farther, and I now beg to offer some further explanations for the information of the Surveyor General and the Superintendent of the Civil Hospital, the latter having sent me a return of fever cases to be compared with the meteorological registers.

3. Droughts may be expected when the mean atmospheric pressure is above the average, and when the average velocity of the wind is below the average. The mean temperature is not affected by the amount of rain, but the mean elastic force of water-vapour and the average cloudiness increase and decrease with the rain.

4. After the end of April there need be no fear of drought. There is always heavy rain up to the end of August. But then the rainfall decreases quickly as a rule and as it is moreover extremely variable during September and October, these months should be watched. When rainfall is defective in both months a drought may occur during the following six months, though it is sometimes prevented by heavy winter rains.

5. The drought of 1890-1891 was without precedent within fourteen years, but that does not make it likely that such a drought may not occur again within fourteen years.

Rain is a very variable and uncertain element and no forecast for any season can be made in advance.

6. Malarial fevers, as stated in my annual report for 1885, follow heavy rainfall. When the rain- fall has been excessive during a certain month, there is an increase of malarial fever during the following month, and as this appears to be particularly severe among those who dwell near the nullahs, it is very likely caused by the decay of animal or vegetable inatter carried down by the . torrents from higher ground and deposited at a lower level, by disturbance of ground saturated with

malaria, by the growth of bacteria in wet soil, and by the rise of the level of sub-soil water.

7. Cases of malarial fever among the Police Force of Hongkong (average number about 700) during each month of the three years 1888 to 1890 inclusive were compared with the rainfall during the previous month with the following result:-

8. The apparent disagreement between these two tables shows that three years do not suffice for drawing quantitive conclusions, but at the same time the connection referred to above appears at a glance.

    9. Further information about the annual distribution of rainfall and its consequences will not be available till several more years of observations and research have passed by.

HONOURABLE COLONIAL SECRETARY,

HONGKONG Observatory,

8th January, 1892.

   In continuation of my report of the 7th September, 1891, 'I have the honour to enclose two tables to be forwarded to the Surveyor General subject to the approval of the Governor.

   2. The first table exhibits the rainfall in Hongkong for every month during the past 39 years compiled from the Observatory records supplemented from various sources - mainly the returns from the military authorities. The second table shows excess of rain as + and drought as-.

3. The following are the principal droughts:

SIR,I have the honour to transmit herewith, for the information of the Colony under your Government, copies of an extract, with English translation, from the North German Gazette of 16th August 1891, containing the decisions arrived by the German Imperial Colonial Council with regard to Companies, &c., carrying on business in the German Protectorates.

I have the honour to be,

The Officer Administering the Government of

(Translation.)

Sir,

Your most obedient, humble Servant,

HONGKONG.

Extract from the "North German Gazette" of August 16, 1891.

KNUTSFORD.

   THE long expected publication of the decisions of the Colonial Council with regard to the law respecting Colonial Companies appeared in yesterday's "Deutsche Colonial Blatt."

The decisions are as follows:--

(a.) Foreign Corporations, in so far as they are commercial Companies, particularly joint stock and "commandite" Companies, must obtain the permission of the Government in order to carry on their business within the Protectorate.

   Regulations will be made to put the same principle in force, without delay, in the German spheres of interest.

(b.) Foreign Companies (a) must produce proof of sufficient means (viz., sufficient capital) before they can obtain admission to the Protectorate.

(c.) Foreign Companies (a) must found a branch in the Protectorate in which they ask for permission to carry on business.

   It rests with the Government to decide, whether the appointment of a representative and the acquisi- tion of a legal status shall be considered sufficient.

*

(d.)-1. The authorizations of a public legal nature granted by native Chieftains are not to be recognized as valid.

This Regulation especially holds good for :-

a. Exclusive Concessions for roads and railways.

B. Commercial monopolies.

y. Exclusive mining rights.

?. Concessions of authorizations to carry out mining works, and of rights to the soil and ground, over the whole territory of a tribe, or over a greater or undefined portion thereof.

   2. In case the Government admits the rights of a commercial Company of the nature described above in 1, a, S. The exercise of such rights must be under the form of a Company founded according to German law in Germany or the Protectorate.

   From a consideration of the above decisions, it appears that the Colonial Council was engaged upon two different questions.

These questions may be deducted from the answers as follows :-

   1. Under what conditions are foreign communities of people bearing limited responsibility to be permitted to carry on business in the Protectorates?

   2. What can be considered as a possible subject for the granting of Concessions on the part of native Chiefs, and to what extent is it incumbent on the Government to recognize such legal businesses?

The decisions from (a) to (c) answer the first; those under (d) answer the second.

   With regard to foreign Companies, all those who do not carry on business for profit, e.g., mis- sionaries, do not come into consideration.

   It may be gathered that it makes no difference to the position of these Companies, whether their members barter with the natives in order to procure their necessities, or whether, with a view to educating them to work, they found trading Settlements, provided that these businesses actually serve the objects of the Mission. Open trading Companies differ from industrial Companies, as also from "commandite" Companies.

30

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH JANUARY, 1892.

In fine, foreign Companies are only to be permitted to carry on business in the Protectorate with the consent of the Government.

This carries out the old Prussian maxim which has always been upheld by the Legislature.

   The extension of this maxim to the Protectorate is at once justified, when it is considered how the uncontrolled influx of foreign Companies with large capital would influence the development of economic life in the as yet undeveloped Protectorate.

   One has not only to consider the dangers which might arise to the fixing of the relations of exchange between the Protectorate and the Empire.

   The immediate damage to the development of our Protectorate would have to be anticipated, if there were a possibility, by availing ourselves of the easier forms of foreign legislation in Colonies, of our beginning to found Companies, deprived of a solid basis, and whose collapse would for years bring economic undertakings in the Protectorate into discredit.

   It may be imagined further, that the Government will not establish Regulations with regard to the admittance of foreign Companies, which will frighten away foreign capital from the desirable parti- cipation in the economic development of the Protectorate.

   How the medium will be found between these conflicting interests cannot further be gathered from general Regulations. The Colonial Council has made a wise reservation, even though with regard to this it has only established two points.

   The Government, before admitting foreign Companies, shall demand proof of sufficient working capital. It shall secondly make sure that those Companies are always represented in some way in the Protectorate, which will spare to the creditors the risk and consequences which are connected with the prosecution of legal claims in a foreign country.

The second question is no longer a question of the right of a Company.

   It refers much more to the general question of the validity of the Concessions of the natives, regardless of whether they are granted to foreigners or not, to single individuals or Companies.

   The manner in which many of these Concessions have been obtained is sufficiently well known. Subjects of Concession have frequently been the most valuable rights of sovereignty and possession, stretches of territory as big as kingdoms, the entire mineral produce of a country, and exclusive rights of innumerable description.

The Colonial Council justly concluded that the Protectorate of the Empire is to be looked upon as, a sort of guardianship over the natives, who in their dealings with White men cannot be looked on as capable of trading. One of the first acts of the Government in the Protectorates, therefore, has been the publication of Decrees, whereby the validity of negotiations between the natives and White men with regard to possession of land, mining rights, &c., are subjected to the approval of the Government. It remained a question how to deal with such legal negotiations concluded prior to the declaration of the Protectorate.

   An attempt to decide this question was made in the Agreement with England of last year, whereby a difference was made between Concessions having sovereign rights as their object, and such as contain permission to carry on trade or mining operations.

Between Germany and England, it was at that time decided that the exercise of sovereign rights should ever be dependent on the consent of the protecting Power.

   A glance at these decisions enables one to note the bearing of the decisions of the Colonial Council on the second question.

The kernal of the decisions lies in this, that the Colonial Council sees, not only in the granting of exclusive rights and monopolies, but also in the giving over of the rights to the territory of the tribe or to improportionately large or insufficiently bounded portions of territory, a renunciation of sovereign rights which the Government is not to look upon as valid.

In such instances, as a fact, the acquisition is tantamount to occupation of the district in question. It is self evidently in opposition to the conception of the sovereign right of a State when, in the territory which is subject to its sovereign authority, the members of some other State possess rights of use and property, which render entirely out of the question the economic expansion by private persons, and place the development of the country entirely in the hands of this proprietor.

He who has possession of the whole territory has also the sovereignty over its members, and determines their social, economic, and political development.

Should others than foreigners become the proprietors of such an extended possession, the objections to such a state are not so apparent, though actually the position is the same.

It thus appears that with regard to the decisions under (d), the difference between foreigners and non-foreigners only becomes evident when the Government is recommended, in those instances where, according to the circumstances of the case, it feels it incumbent on itself to recognize Concessions of this character, to establish as a condition that the Company to be formed to carry on the Concession must be subject to German law.

We are unconsciously here reminded that the Government once refused to one of our Colonial Companies their consent to a by no means disadvantageous Agreement for the handing over of the larger portion of their Colonial possession, because those who would acquire it were foreigners.

The Colonial Council in its decisions has placed itself on the same footing.

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 thre Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold se; arately.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and wifile alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantoncse, 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 Honourable CATCHICK PAUL CHATER.

The Council met pursuant to adjournment.

The Minutes of the last Meeting, held on the 4th December, 1891, were read and confirmed. The Honourable T. H. WHITEHEAD moved the following resolution :-

In consequence of the fact that the cost of the Administrative Staff of the Government of Hongkong is constantly increasing, having risen from $547,650 in 1887, to the enormous amount of $758,139 in 1891 and to the still larger estimated sum of about $800,000 for 1892 exclusive of $65,200 for Pensions for 1822 it is incumbent on the Un-official Members of Council, who being the lawfully constituted guardians of the public purse, to earnestly consider and strenuously urge upon the Government the necessity for retrenchment in every possible direction more especially when it is remembered that the Colony's financial position is not strong, that we are threatened with a shrinkage in its revenue in the near future, and that our position with reference to Opium, and the revenue derived therefrom is precarious, that Government appoint a Commission composed of Members exclusive of Government Officials with full powers to enquire into and report on the working of all the Departments of the Government with the view to retrenchment, and to the desirability or otherwise of the redistribution of work, the amalgamation of certain offices, the increasing of the hours of the official day, privileges in the way of leave, &c.

Honourable P. RYRIE seconded.

The Council divided and the resolution was rejected by seven to three votes.

FIRE BRIGADE Department,

HONGKONG, 6th January, 1892.

   SIR,I have the honour to submit for the information of His Excellency the Governor the follow- ing report on the Government Fire Brigade for the year 1891.

Fires, &c.

   1. During the year there were 81 fires and alarms of fire; and the value of the property destroyed is estimated at $33,320.

2. The following table shews the number of fires at which the services of the Brigade were required, each year, during the last ten years.

   3. In my report for the year 1888 I attributed the enormous increase in the number of fires to the effects of " Cheap Fire Insurance," and I think the great decrease during the last three years is due, in great measure, if not entirely, to the action of the Fire Insurance Companies and to the pro- ceedings under the Fire Enquiry Ordinance (No. 23 of 1888).

   4. Of the fires that took place during the year three only were the subject of official enquiry under the Ordinance, and no prosecution was instituted.

5. I am glad to be able to report, that no casualty whatever occurred at any of the fires.

   6. The fires on the 5th and 6th May last, both occurred close to the Electric Light lines and shewed clearly the disadvantages of the present system of overhead Electric Light wires. In the first case, the line was damaged by the fire, and the firemen, in consequence, ran additional risk to life and limb, and in the second, to avoid accidents, the current was shut off, thereby plunging part of the City into almost total darkness.

The Brigade.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1891.

   8. I am pleased to be able to report, that the conduct of the men has been good. The engines, stores, and

gear generally, have been carefully attended to by Mr. CAMPBELL, the Assistant Engineer. 9. The laying of the new water mains throughout the City has nearly been completed, and I am of opinion that during the current year, the number of Manual Engines may safely be reduced, and a saving to the Government thus effected.

10. I enclose a report by Mr. KINGHORN, the Engineer, on the present state of the engines; and also a return of fires and alarms of fire during the year.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

  The following Report of the Acting Surveyor General, for the year 1891, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 25th instant, is published.

By Command,

W. M. GOODMAN, Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 29th January, 1892.

No. 23.

SURVEYOR GENERAL'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 13th January, 1892.

{

  SIR,-I have the honour to forward you the following report on the works carried out by the Surveyor General's Department during the

year 1891.

ANNUALLY RECURRENT EXPENDITURE.

  2. Repairs of Buildings.-The number of Buildings of all descriptions the maintenance of which has been under the charge of this department was at the beginning of the year 114, a complete list of which will be found in the Blue Book.

  3. The whole of these with the exception of Mountain Lodge, Whitfield Police Station, Shau- kiwan School, the Old Central School and Shamshuipo School, have been maintained in a satisfactory state of repair throughout.

  4. The following buildings have been painted externally:-The Government Civil Hospital (New Wing), the European Lunatic Asylum, Number 9 Police Station, the Police Stations at Hung Hom and Shaukiwan, and the Sai-ying-poon and Hung Hom Markets.

5. The construction of a small addition to the Magistracy consisting of two rooms providing additional accommodation for the clerical staff has been commenced.

  6. The present condition of Mountain Lodge is most unsatisfactory; the buildings were erected some years ago, before residence in the Hill District assumed anything like the proportions it has done of recent years, and are now in a dilapidated condition and practically unfit for occupation.

The cost of repairing the existing buildings would be considerable and the accommodation provided falls far short of that necessary for even ordinary comfort during so lengthened a residence in the Hill District as it has of late years been deemed desirable to make.

The time has undoubtedly arrived, owing to the natural decay of the existing buildings, when some steps should be taken to replace them by a more substantial and convenient structure.

inn.

7. Whitfield Police Station has been vacated by the police and is now let for the purposes of an

8. Shaukiwan School not being any longer required and being in a dilapidated condition, it was considered advisable to pull it down.

9. The Old Central School buildings have remained unoccupied, except by a caretaker, but it is not advisable to remove them pending some decision being arrived at as to the future utilisation of

the site.

10. The school building at Shamshuipo has been in a dilapidated state and unoccupied for the greater part of the year and owing to the establishment of a Basil Mission School in this village no further demand at present appears to exist for a Government school building in this locality.

11. Maintenance of Telegraph.-The Government Telegraph lines have been maintained in a fairly satisfactory condition, but more active supervision in respect of the alignment of the poles and the fixing of the wires appears necessary.

At present there are 51 miles of land line and 3.3 miles of sub-marine lines which have been main- tained during the past year. Two-and-one-half (24) miles of land line were constructed during

1891.

12. The Public Cemetry.-The Public Cemetery has been maintained in a satisfactory manner. Towards the latter part of the year it became necessary to make a further extension on the south

side.

"

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

13. Maintenance of Praya Wall and Piers.-Little has been done to the Praya Wall and Piers in the City as the construction of the New Praya Wall will, in the course of a few years, necessitate their removal.

14. A contract was entered into in September for the construction of a new pier at Yaumati having an area of 4,410 square feet, the old one being severely damaged by the gale in July last. This work is progressing satisfactorily.

15. The length of Praya Wall existing in Hongkong and Kowloon is 8 miles and the number of Public Piers is 19. The total expenditure under this heading includes $709.84 spent on the new pier at Yaumati.

16. Maintenance of Lighthouses.-The Lighthouses, three in number, have required no extensive repairs.

17. Maintenance of the Disinfector.-It is satisfactory to record that the Disinfector has seldom been required during the past year. The expenditure under this heading includes the cost of the

watchman.

18. Dredging Foreshores.--During the past year 37,713 cubic yards of material have been removed from the Harbour at a cost of $10,614.19 including the cost of maintenance of one Priestman's dredger.

19. Miscellaneous Works.-With the exception of the repair of the sea wall and roadway along the south side of Causeway Bay, no works of any importance requiring special remark have been carried out under this heading.

20. Maintenance of Roads and Bridges in Victoria.-The total length of streets and roads in the City is about 35 miles, about 24 miles of which have been re-made and the remainder kept in repair. The roads and streets particularly in the central portion of the City have been much cut up by the laying of new sewers and water pipes and until such operations are complete it is practically throwing money away to attempt to maintain them in such a condition as would, under ordinary circumstances, be considered satisfactory. During the latter part of the year in such portions of the City as the operations of the Water and Drainage Department were practically completed, the roads and streets have been taken in hand many of which are now in a satisfactory state of repair.

21. The Bridges have all been maintained in a satisfactory condition except the Praya Bridge over the Bowrington Canal which is now undergoing reconstruction and will be referred to under the heading "Extraordinary Public Works."

   22. Maintenance of Roads and Bridges out of Victoria.-The roads outside the City have received a good deal of attention during the past year and extensive repairs have been carried out in many instances specially to those from Little Hongkong to Stanley, Stanley to Shaukiwan, Tytam Tuk to Tytam Reservoir, and from Tytam Gap to Cape D'Aguilar.

23. The general repair of the roads in the Hill District is now in hand.

24. During the gale of July last a portion of the sea wall on the Shaukiwan Road, some 100 lineal yards in length, was carried away and with it a part of the road. A new wall has been built and the road repaired.

   25. A new road 500 lineal yards in length has been constructed from Shaukiwan to A-Kung- Ngam.

26. The existing Bridges have been kept in a thorough state of repair. There are, however, three bridges on the Stanley Road, viz.: two in Deep Water Bay and one at Tsinshuiwan which were destroyed some years ago and never reinstated. I am of opinion that now that this road has been put in a good state of repair and is becoming more used these bridges should be reinstated; the reconstruc- tion of which I propose to deal with in a separate report.

   27. The total length of roads outside the City is about 50 miles including the Aberdeen and Shaukiwan Carriage Roads.

28. The Maintenance of Roads and Bridges in Kowloon.-The Roads at Tsimshatsui, Yaumati and Hung Hom have been extensively repaired.

29. Six hundred (600) lineal yards of new roads are in course of construction and are now nearly completed. Fifteen hundred and fifty (1,550) lineal yards of new roads have been completed, the most important of which is the road along the southern shore from Tsimshatsui to Hung Hom providing means of communication by jinricksha between Tsimshatsui Pier and Hung Hom, a distance of about two miles.

   30. Ten hundred and twenty (1,020) lineal yards of streets at Hung Hom have been kerbed and channelled and the footways concreted.

31. The total length of roads and streets in Tsimshatsui, Yaumati and Hung Hom is about 9 miles.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30?? JANUARY, 1892.

69

   32. A new bridge has been constructed over the stream at the north end of Yaumati Village and the Swing Bridge on the Praya over the entrance to the Police dock which was damaged by the gale in July last has been repaired.

33. Street Lighting.-Previous to 1st of December, 1890, the City had for some years past been lighted exclusively by gas supplied by the Hongkong and China Gas Company. At the commencement of 1891 there existed 857 lamps.

In October, 1890, a contract was entered into with the Electric Company for the erection of 64 arc lights in the central and eastern portions of the City. These were first lighted in December, 1890.

   In April last a contract was made for the erection of eleven additional lamps which were lighted in September last.

34. The total number at present erected is therefore 75, the estimated candle power of which is 150,000 and the annual cost of lighting $22,000.

35. There at present exist in addition to electric lights 653 gas lamps exclusive of those in the Military Cantonment. The annual cost of lighting and maintaining which is $23,000.

36. In addition to the foregoing there are fifteen gas lamps in the Military Cantonment towards which the Colony pays $250.50 per annum.

37. Making the total annual cost of lighting the public thoroughfares of the City $45,750.50.

38. The following is a short description of the system of electric lighting adopted; for much of the information I am indebted to Mr. W. H. WICKHAM, the Company's Engineer, under whose super- vision the work has been carried out:-

39. The Central Station of the Electric Company is situated in Wing Fung Street, in which is installed the Plant for supplying the arc lamps in the public streets.

40. The Plant consists of 3 engines driving 3 dynamos of the type known as "Brush Series Arc Light Dynamos" each dynamo being capable of supplying 50 to 55 arc lamps of 2,000 candle power nominal. One of these Engines and Dynamos are held in reserve.

41. The 75 arc lamps, at present supplied, are connected in two separate circuits, one supplying 39 lamps and the other 36 lamps, arranged so that the first circuit supplies the lamps in the central and western portions of the City on the Queen's Road level, and the second supplies the lamps in the upper portion of the City and Queen's Road East.

42. The total length of conducting wires employed is about eleven miles. The conductor used consists of a strand of 7 wires each No. 16 B. W. G. tinned hard-drawn copper, and is continuously insulated with vulcanized india-rubber protected by a braided covering, and is suspended from a steel wire bearer consisting of a strand of 3 No. 14 B. W. G. galvanized wires, these bearers being supported on Porcelain Fluid Insulators carried overhead on Tubular Iron Poles along the thorough- fares of the City.

43. The arc lamps are known as the Brokie-Pell type, and contain regulating mechanism to adjust the Carbon Pencils as these consume. The Carbon Pencils are renewed in each lamp daily.

44. The Electric Difference of Potential at the terminals of the two circuits of 39 and 36 lamps is about 2,050 and 1,930 volts respectively, and the current supplied in either circuit ranges between 9.6 and 9.3 amperes.

          As the lamps are connected in series the current supplied to the most distant lamp is of the same value as that supplied to the nearest.

LAND SURVEY DEPARTMENT.

45. During the past year ten land sales have taken place. The area leased being 780,494 square feet, premiums realised $35,839. Eight extensions of existing lots of a total area of 355,020 square feet have been granted. The amount of premium paid is $7,007.55 and annual Crown rent $454.

46. Surveys have been made, boundaries corrected and plans and particulars for the preparation of 90 new leases forwarded to the Land Office.

47. Surveys have been made of Wongneichong, Aberdeen and a portion of Kowloon in all covering an area of 143·29 acres.

48. One thousand five hundred and eighty-four (1,584) Squatter's licences have been issued, the fees for which amount to $5,502.28.

49. A complete return has been prepared of the lands held by those on the Rent Roll and under the tenure of a Squatter's licence in the island of Hongkong.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

INSPECTION OF BUILDINGS.

   50. The work of this branch is regulated by Ordinance 15 of 1889, the Amending Ordinance passed during the present Session, and Ordinance No. 4 of 1888.

   51. During the past year plans for 22 European houses, 149 Chinese houses, and 64 for miscella- neous structures have been deposited, also 142 plans for alterations to existing buildings, making in all 377 under Section 69 of the above mentioned Ordinance.

   52. One hundred and fifty-five (155) buildings have been certified under Section 53 of Ordinance 15 of 1889.

   53. Permission has been given to erect fifty-two (52) Verandahs and three (3) Piers over Crown Land.

   54. Notices have been issued to remove or repair dangerous structures in one hundred and seven- teen (117) instances and to remove verandah enclosures in one hundred and eighteen (118).

   55. One thousand and forty-five (1,045) miscellaneous notices and permits for the erection of scaffolding, opening roads, &c., &c. have been issued.

   56. Fifty-five (55) permits have been issued for the erection and repair of monuments and enclo- sures in the Colonial Cemetery. The fees received amount to $302.33.

   57. The above returns compared with those for the year 1890 shew an increased activity in building operations.

58. All plans deposited have been numbered and the registers are complete up to date.

EXTRAORDINARY PUBLIC WORKS.

    59. The Central Market. -The construction of the foundations for the New Central Market was completed in August last and the contractor has been allowed to proceed with the superstructure to the level of the plinth.

60. I regret to say that owing to the various opinions expressed respecting the design of the superstructure no design was definitely settled on till late in the year.

61. Since September last the completion of the necessary details for the carrying out of this work have received my careful attention, and I trust that active operations for the completion of the super- structure will be commenced shortly and that before another year passes more satisfactory progress will have been made with this important building.

62. Gap Rock Lighthouse.-Good progress has been made with the construction of the lighthouse on the Gap Rock situated in the China Sea at a distance of 30 miles from Hongkong.

   63. The buildings consisting of Tower, European and Chinese Quarters, and house for condensing apparatus have been completed with the exception of stair railings, a small portion of joiner's and painter's work and special fittings for oil tank.

64. The lantern which will contain a revolving light of the first order has been erected and the erection of the revolving apparatus and lamp is in hand. The level of the focal plane of the light above mean sea level is 140 feet and in clear weather will be visible at a distance of about 20 miles. The lantern and light apparatus were obtained from Messrs. CHANCE BROTHERS of Birmingham.

65. The apparatus for condensing sea water is in progress and now very nearly complete.

66. The steam tender Fame has made 153 trips conveying workmen to and from the rock with provisions, water and materials for their use. The Fame has proved most suitable for the work and has been maintained in good order.

   67. Reclamation in front of Marine Lots 240 to 246 Kennedytown.-A Contract (7) dated 26th November, 1887, was entered into with Mr. TSANG KENG for the construction of the Praya Wall (1,410 lineal feet in length) including foundation, raising the level of the reclaimed ground, and the construction of storm water drains and other works necessary for the completion of this reclamation except roads.

68. Prior to the commencement of 1891 the rubble foundations had been completed, 127,000 cubic yards of earth filling and 5,000 cubic yards of concrete deposited and 70,000 cubic feet of ma- sonry set.

69. During the present year 81,000 cubic yards of filling and 5,000 cubic yards of concrete have been deposited and 13,362 cubic feet of masonry set.

70. Owing to the continuation of the settlement at the southern extremity this work has not yet been completed, but as the settlement now appears to have ceased the remaining portion of the wall will be proceeded with and should shortly be completed.

L

71

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

71. Training Albany Nullah and Branches.-The work of training the Albany Nullah and branches has progressed considerably and is now nearly completed.

72. The Albany Nullah 15 feet by 9 feet was completed in September last and Branch Nullah No. 1-3 feet 6 inches by 4 feet 6 inches-in August last.

73. Nearly the whole of the excavation for the training of branch nullah No. 2-3 feet 6 inches by 4 feet 6 inches-is completed and about 313 lineal yards of the masonry work have been constructed.

74. The walls and invert of the Albany Nullah are of masonry backed with concrete.

75. The walls of the branch nullahs are of similar construction and the inverts are formed of

concrete.

76. A substantial stone bridge 15 feet 6 inches in width with ornamental stone parapets has been constructed over the Albany Nullah for the purpose of carrying the Kennedy Road. This bridge replaces the wooden structure destroyed by the storm in 1889.

  77. New Roads and Preparatory Work Kennedy Road Sites.-A contract was entered into with Mr TSANG KENG in October, 1890, for the construction of the MacDonnell Road contouring the hill side between the Kennedy and Bowen Roads.

78. This road is 586 lineal yards in length and 20 feet in width situated at a level of 272 feet above sea level and is carried over the Albany Nullah by a substantial stone bridge and the Hong- kong High Level Tramway by an iron arch bridge.

79. Most of the excavation and embankment necessary for the construction of MacDonnell Road has been completed.

  80. The bridge over the Albany Nullah with the exception of the iron railings was completed in November last.

  81. The abutments and wing walls of the bridge over the tram line are completed and the iron work is nearly ready for erection.

82. Re-construction of Praya Bridge over Bowrington Canal.-The necessary wrought-iron girders for the reconstruction of this bridge having been obtained from England, a contract was entered 'into with Messrs. CHAN A TONG & Co. for their erection and for the masonry work required; and with Messrs. FENWICK & Co. for the construction of cast and wrought-iron railings in November last.

83. This bridge is 19 feet wide and has three spans of 29 feet 6 inches.

  84. On examination it was found that the foundations of the piers and abutments of the old bridge had been considerably undermined. These have now been protected with sheet piling and a concrete apron laid.

85. The tops of the piers have been levelled ready to receive the girders.

86. Satisfactory progress has been made by Messrs. FENWICK & Co. with the iron railings. 87. Improvements Recreation Ground Happy Valley.-A contract was entered into with Mr. Foo SIK in July, 1890, for raising the area known as the "pond" about 4 acres in extent to the same level as the remaining portion of the ground was raised to in 1888. This work was completed in April last. 88. In April last a contract was entered into with Mr. TSANG SAM for the sub-soil drainage, This work was including the laying of about 2,000 lineal yards of drains, and for turfing this area. completed in October last.

89. The total area available for recreation is now upwards of 27 acres.

  90. Cattle Depot Extension.-An agreement for the preparation of the site for the extension of the Cattle Depot at Kennedytown was entered into with Mr. TSANG KENG in July last. This work was completed in October last and a further contract was entered into with Mr. CHEUNG NAM for the erection of the building. The amount of this contract is $6,035 and the time for completion is May next. This work has made satisfactory progress and there is every probability of its being completed within the contract time.

91. Slaughter House, Sheep and Pig Depot.-The preparation of the site was commenced in October, 1890, the contract having been secured by Mr. Tsang Keng.

  92. 31,000 cubic yards of excavation and 4,500 cubic yards of masonry and concrete work in retaining walls have been completed, and the site will shortly be ready for the commencement of the buildings, the specifications and detail drawings for which are now being prepared.

93. The area of the site is 92,430 square feet.

  94. Slaughter House, Kowloon.-This building which is situated about mile from the village of Hung Hom and near the rifle ranges is being erected by Mr. TSANG KENG under contract (1). The amount of which is $5,750 and the time for completion February next.

72

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

95. The building consisting of three slaughter houses, one exclusively for the use of Indians, the others for the killing of cattle, sheep and pigs; three sheds for the accommodation of animals to be slaughtered, office, coolie quarters and out-buildings covers an area of 8,615 square feet and is approaching completion.

96. Public Laundries.-A site 17,660 square feet in area has been selected for the construction of ten public laundries on Kennedy Road, Wanchai.

97. These laundries consisting of two living rooms, cook house, washing, drying and ironing rooms are being erected by Mr. TSANG SAM under contract (9). Good progress has been made with the work, and the laundries will shortly be ready for occupation.

98. Public Latrines.-Previous to the past year very inadequate latrine accommodation existed in the villages of Hongkong and Kowloon. To meet this want ten cast-iron latrines obtained from Messrs. MACFARLANE & Co. of Glasgow have been erected in the villages of Stanley, Shaukiwan, Aplichau, Hung Hom and Yaumati. They appear to meet the requirements of the native population and will doubtless improve the sanitary condition of the villages.

99. Latrines were also completed in June last in Jardine's Bazaar and Poyan Street. The former covers an area of 540 square feet and the latter an area of 770 square feet.

    100. Civil Hospital Staff Quarters.-This building is situated at the corner of High Street at its junction with Eastern Street and occupies a site 21,114 square feet in area. The building is two stories in height and consists of 10 bed rooms, 5 sitting rooms, an office and one dining room with the necessary servants' quarters,

quarters, bath and lavatory accommodation.

    101. In addition to the above a chemical laboratory 41 feet by 21 feet and store rooms have been provided.

    102. A contract (8) was entered into with Mr. TSANG KENG in November, 1889, for its erection the time fixed for its completion being May, 1891. I regret, however, that owing to what appears to be inexcusable delay on the part of the contractor this building is not yet completed though in a very advanced stage.

5

103. Civil Hospital Coolie Quarters-Commenced in July, 1890, the contract (%) being obtained by Mr. Wo SING were completed in April, 1891. This building occupies a site (2,800 square feet) within the Hospital compound and is two stories in height consisting of 7 rooms with the necessary bath, lavatory and kitchen accommodation.

104. Civil Hospital alterations and additions.-Under this heading, the necessary boiler house, boiler and piping have been provided and erected for supplying hot water to the bathrooms, lavatories and kitchen throughout the Civil Hospital main buildings.

    105. The contract for this work was obtained by Messrs. FENWICK & Co. in May last and has been satisfactorily completed at a cost of $850.

    106. The retaining wall on the northern boundary has been built and a few minor improvements have also been carried out.

107. Lunatic Asylum for Chinese.-This building situated in High Street occupies an area of 11,700 square feet, including an airing court of 5,650 square feet, was commenced in April, 1890, by Mr. YEE HING under contract (13) and satisfactorily completed in July, 1891.

    108. The building is two stories in height in addition to a 7-foot basement and consists of 4 day rooms and 16 single cells, four of which are padded. Four rooms are provided for the attendants and office as well as the necessary servants' quarters, kitchen, bath and lavatory accommodation.

109. Police Station Aberdeen-Commenced by Mr. SOON LOONG in October, 1890, under contract ), is situated near the eastern end of the village on an elevated site having a southern aspect, has been satisfactorily completed.

    110. This building is two stories in height with a 4-foot basement and is built of brickwork with stone dressings.

    111. The accommodation provided consists of 3 rooms for a married Inspector, mess-room and barrack-room for 4 European Constables, barrack-rooms for 6 Sikh Constables, 8 Chinese Constables and 6 Water Police with lavatory and bath accommodation, 4 cells, charge room, stables, store-rooms, servants' quarters and kitchens.

    112. The site is divided into two terraces, the stables, store-rooms, &c. being placed on the lower and the remaining buildings on the upper.

113. Police Station at Quarry Bay-Occupying an elevated site on the western side of Quarry Bay 4,340 square feet in area, is a one-storied building containing 2 rooms, store-room and 2 cells.

73

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

Detached from the main building but approached by a covered way are the kitchens, servants' quarters and offices. This building was commenced in November, 1890, and completed in July last by Mr. CHAN A TONG under contract (24).

   114. Kennedytown Police Station.-The sum of $2,000 has been expended in erecting a retain- ing wall at the back of the building and cutting away the steep hill side which had commenced to slip.

115. District School Sai-ying-poon.-This school is situated at the junction of High Street with Pokfulam Road and was commenced in September, 1890. It occupies an area of 6,530 square feet. Three class rooms are provided and fitted up to accommodate 186 children. Quarters have been provided for a coolie and the necessary kitchen accommodation and offices. The work has been carried out by Mr. YEUNG A TING under contract (1) and was completed in June last.

116. Additions to Government House-Erected from the designs of Messrs. PALMER & TURNER and under their supervision, was commenced in April, 1890, consist of a ball room 60 feet by 40 feet, supper, card, and billiard rooms and other accessories, is situated at the eastern end of Government House and occupies a site 2,700 square feet in area.

   117. The building with the exception of the decorations and lighting was completed in September last. A contract has been entered into with the Electric Company for lighting this portion of Government House with electricity.

   118.. The installation of the Electric Light has been commenced and consists of 138 incandescent lamps of a total candle-power amounting to upwards of 2,600.

   119. The alternating current for supplying these lamps will be taken from the Electric Com- pany's house-lighting mains at a pressure of 2,000 volts and will be reduced by a transformer placed in the building to a pressure of 100 volts for the purposes of lighting the lamps.

   120. All wires used in the building will be insulated with vulcanized india-rubber protected by a braided covering and laid in hard wood casings; the sizes of the wires employed varying, as the number of lamps supplied, from a strand of 19 No. 16 B. W. G. copper wires to 1 No. 18 B. W. G. copper wire for a single lamp.

   121. The amount of electric energy consumed will be measured by meters placed in the building, the charge being 35 cents per 1,000 watt-hours, at which rate it is estimated that the lighting will cost about $3.50 per hour for current when all the lamps are alight.

   122. The estimated initial cost of Installation is dollars four thousand three hundred and eighty- one and cents fifty. ($4,381.50.)

123. On the completion of the electric installation it is proposed to proceed with the internal decoration of the building.

*

   173. For the purpose of weighting the foundation and as far as practicable reducing further settlement after the permanent work has been commenced the concrete blocks are to be laid on the rubble foundations as soon as they have. been completed to within 3 feet of low water level over a base of 16 feet and carried up to a height of 6 feet above proposed coping level. On the completion of the settlement these blocks are to be removed, the rubble foundation levelled and the two courses of blocks above mentioned permanently set. Upon these the masonry wall will be constructed.

   174. Sir JOHN COODE in his report dated the 18th of March, 1890, approved of the late Surveyor General's recommendation and further advised that these blocks be faced with granite built in during their preparation on the exposed face.

The following Report of the Resident Engineer, Water and Drainage Department, for the year 1891, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 25th instant, is published.

****

2

By Command,

W. M. GOODMAN,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 29th January, 1892.

SIR,

RESIDENT ENGINEER'S OFFICE, HONGKONG, 13th January, 1892.

  I have the honour to forward you the following report on the maintenance and construction of Water and Drainage Works during the year 1891.

EXISTING WORKS.

  1. During the year 1890 as stated in my report of that year an addition was made to the Water Works of the City of Victoria by the completion of the Pokfoolum Filter Beds and Service Reservoir, three small covered Service Reservoirs and about 10 miles of mains, the erection of forty-nine public fountains and twenty-four meters; and to the Sewerage Works of the Colony by the completion of about three miles of new main sewers.

  These works have all been maintained at a trifling cost and have proved theinselves during the past year to amply meet the requirements for which they were constructed.

  2. The Tytam and Pokfoolum reservoirs and the works in immediate connection therewith have been maintained in a satisfactory state of repair without any works of an exceptional nature being required.

The construction of the byepass at the Pokfoolum reservoir reported as being complete in my last annual report has done good service during the past year and materially lessened the work and expenditure that would have been involved at the filter beds had this work not been accomplished.

  3. The Wong-nei-cheong Dam or Blue Pool. This reservoir has been cleaned out and the pipes leading therefrom through Bowrington to East Point cleaned. The water from this source is not filtered and is only laid on at present to the Bowrington and East Point Sugar Refineries. Previous to July a portion of the eastern part of the City was supplied from this source, but the houses connected with the main from the Blue Pool were on the pipes and fittings being put in order connected with the new mains and are now supplied with filtered water.

All water supplied to the Refineries is measured by meter.

4. The Mint Dam.-This reservoir has also been cleaned out and meters have been fixed to measure the capabilities of the works in connection with it. The water supplied from this source is not filtered and is now mainly used for supplying East Point Sugar Refinery and the stables at Causeway Bay. Previous to last July a portion of the Eastern part of the City was also supplied from this source.

year. The

  5. The Tytam and Pokfoolum Filter Beds have been in constant use throughout the maximum rate of filtration has been 800 gallons per square yard per 24 hours in the case of Tytam and at the rate of 1,000 gallons per square yard per 24 hours in the case of the Pokfoolum Filter Beds. The Tytam beds required cleaning once in 13 days and the Pokfoolum Beds once in 12 days.

  6. The Distribution Works.-The efficiency of the distribution works was materially improved by the addition of some 102 miles of new mains during the year 1890 which early in the past year permitted the removal of several of the old mains which were a constant source of anxiety and waste

of water.

  7. The total expenditure on the maintenance of the water works during 1891 was $7,074.53 which is divided as follows:-

&

Maintaining the Tytam Reservoir Conduit and Filter Beds $1,862.58. Maintaining the Pokfoolum Reservoir Conduit and Filter Beds $1,230.76.

Maintaining the Distribution Works including the cost of pumping water to the higher levels of the City and since the 7th of August to the Hill District $3,981.19.

.

82

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

8. The total quantity of water supplied was 870,041,470 gallons so that the cost of maintenance per 1,000,000 gallons supplied, neglecting Engineering supervision but including the expenditure incurred in the prevention of waste, has been $8.13 as compared with $7.81 the previous year.

Tables A., Al., A2. shew the quantity of water supplied from each source each month during the years 1889, 1890, 1891 the average minimum temperature and the rainfall from which diagrams No. 1 and 14* have been prepared.

I shall refer to this later on when dealing with the question of the consumption of water.

9. The Quality of the Water supplied.--I am indebted to Mr. W. E. CROW, the Government Analyst, for a monthly analysis of the water supplied from the Pokfoolum and Tytam reservoirs before and after filtration from which Tables B. and B1. have been compiled.

Though the analyses speak for themselves there is an apparent anomaly in the total solids before filtration being less than those after filtration during the months of January, February and December in the case of the Tytam water, and January, February, March, May, October and December in the case of the Pokfoolum water. This seems due to the increased hardness of the water after filtration which is accounted for by the quantity of lime existing in the sand composing the filtering material. The ultimate hardness is so small that this slight increase is no detriment to the quality of the water either for domestic or dietetic purposes.

   Speaking generally the water supplied during the past year has been of exceptional purity for a public water supply and compares most favourably with the public water supplies of the United Kingdom.

10. During the month of May on the first heavy rains occurring, after probably the severest drought experienced in this Colony within the memory of any one living, the water assumed tempora- rily a milky white appearance of so noticeable a character that public attention was called to it and a special report was made by Mr. E. W. LUCAS, the Assistant Government Analyst, a copy of which I attach.

11. The entire absence of ammonia in the filtered samples of the Pokfoolum water is a notice- able fact. The analyses of the filtered samples in the case of the Tytam water is not so satisfactory in this respect.

The difference is probably due to the fact that the water after filtration in the case of the Pokfoo- lum supply is stored in a covered reservoir whilst in the case of the Tytam supply, it is stored in an open reservoir in close proximity to the City.

12. The reduction of free ammonia and albumenoid ammonia by filtration is satisfactory evidence of the efficiency of the filters.

The covering over of the Tytam Service Reservoir has received my attention and detail plans and estimates have been prepared.

13. Consumption of Water.-As will be seen on reference to tables A., A.1, A.2, the approximate total consumption of water during the past year has been 870,041,470 gallons as against 823,019,012 gallons in 1890, and 778,146,993 gallons in 1889.

That the consumption should have increased is by no means to be wondered at when it is borne in mind that previous to the commencement of this year water was only very imperfectly distributed and the greater part of the eastern and western portions of the City now supplied with filtered water were previously supplied with unfiltered water from various sources (the yield of which there was no means of ascertaining) and what distribution works existed had been far out-reached by the rapidly increasing population and extension of the built area necessitating the collection of water from streams on the hill-side.

   Since the month of June the whole City has practically without interruption been provided with a constant supply and water is now readily accessible not only to the residents in the City but also to those in the hill district.

14. The introduction of a constant supply at a high pressure following on an intermittent supply naturally led in the first instance to considerable waste; persons who had been accustomed to leave their taps open all night so as to secure, during the few hours the water was obtainable under an intermittent system of supply, sufficient water for their daily wants scarcely realised the fact that such a precaution was no longer necessary and doubtless much waste was occasioned in this manner.

   15. The additional pressure obtained with the new system of pipes increased the waste of water through defective fittings and leaky pipes.

16. The sources of waste have received my careful attention and in May last Mr. DRAPER was engaged for the purpose of making an house-to-house inspection. Such an operation though absolutely necessary in the first instance is, as is well known to those who have had work of this nature to perform, a very tedious one, and compliance with the necessary rules and regulations for the prevention of waste is by no means easy to obtain. However good work has been done upwards of 1,900 Houses Services

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

have been inspected of which 1,023 were found defective, 741 have since been altered so as to comply with the regulations. The remainder have been notified and if the services are not put in order on the expiration of the notice they will be disconnected from the mains. Some serious leaks within private premises have been detected by the temporary fixing of a meter.

On the whole I consider the results encouraging.

Though there still doubtless exist many defective old services, particularly in the centre of the City, as house-to-house inspection progresses these will be detected and remedied or disconnected from the mains.

17. The present population of the City and Peak is 143,402 exclusive of the Naval and Military, the consumption of filtered water for the last quarter of the year has been 255,814,200 gallons including 4,231,000 gallons used for trade purposes and 1,045,000 gallons supplied to the Naval Yard and 5,017,000 gallons supplied to the Military giving an average of 19 gallons nearly per head per diem supplied to the Civil Population for domestic purposes.

18. I attach diagrams Nos. 2, 3 and 4* shewing the hourly consumption of water from the Tytam and Pokfoolum Service Reservoirs during periods of 24 hours.

A comparison of these diagrams shews that the abnormal regularity of draught during the 24 hours obtained in the case of Tytam on the 21st of June, 1890, (at which time the district supplied was under a constant service) indicating a considerable amount of waste has to a very large extent been remedied as shewn by the more normal diagram of the 14th December, 1891, which clearly records a marked improvement in the care bestowed in shutting taps and replacing defective fittings.

The reduction in the consumption of water between 6 P.M. and 6 A.M. is particularly satisfactory. The same remarks apply to some extent to the diagrams shewing the hourly consumption of the Pokfoolum water on 24th August and 14th of December. The comparatively heavy draught between the hours of midnight and 5 A.M. is partly attributable to the system of scavengering prevalent in the City, which is not a water-closeted city, for during these hours night-soil contractor's men are at work and doubtless a considerable quantity of water is used by them for the washing of utensils, &c., and partly to the existence of certain water-consuming trades which the Chinese carry on night and day.

19. I cannot conclude this portion of my report without referring to the exceptionally low rainfall experienced in this Colony from the 16th of August, 1890, to the 13th of May, 1891. During this period of 270 days the total rainfall amounts to 13.26 inches or approximately 29.35 inches less than the average rainfall during the same period for the last 20 years.

20. The average duration of the dry season may be considered to last from October to April inclusive or 212 days, the average rainfall during this period for the last 20 years is 13.95 inches or of an inch more than that experienced during the 270 days of comparative drought of last dry

100 season.

  21. Owing to the exceptionally small rainfall experienced in September and October, 1890, many of the springs along the Pokfoolum and Tytam conduits were intercepted and utilised for the purposes of water supply.

Tables A., A1., A2. shew the quantity of water abstracted from the reservoirs, the quantity inter- cepted from the springs, and the quantity consumed each month.

22. Though the constant supply was maintained from both sources. till the 4th of February there remained on that date only 87,000,000 gallons in the reservoirs. The daily consumption being 2,426,000 gallons, it became necessary to limit the hours of supply. Shutting off the water from 9 P.M. to 5 A.M. reduced the daily consumption by 450,000 gallons but further limiting of the hours of supply ultimately became necessary until on the 28th of April the minimum limit was reached and from that date to the 14th of May the water was only turned on for 2 hours a day, during which time 849,000 gallons per diem were delivered or 6 gallons per head per diem.

The quantity of water abstracted from the Pokfoolum Reservoir from the 1st of September, 1890, when the water fell below the level of the overflow to the 13th of May, 1891, was 66,000,000 gallons. The yield of the springs was 36,000,000 gallons.

Making the total supply obtained from this source 102,000,000 gallons.

The quantity of water abstracted from the Tytain Reservoir from the 22nd August, 1890, when the water fell to the level of the overflow to the 13th of May, 1891, was 312,000,000 gallons. The yield of the springs was 70,582,000 gallons.

Making the total supply obtained from this source 382,582,000 gallons.

23. The experience gained during this season points only too clearly to the fact that if an extension of the water works, involving I may say a heavy expenditure of money, is to be avoided in the near future, strenuous efforts must be made and stringent regulations enforced to avoid waste and misuse of water.

   24. Drainage Works.-The storm water drains throughout the City have received constant attention and on the whole they have been maintained in an efficient state of repair and as free from deposit as can reasonably be expected so long as the combined system of sewerage exists.

As the new sewerage works progressed in the several districts improved gullies have been fixed for the purpose of intercepting road detritus which formerly found its way into the sewers causing considerable accumulat- ing in them.

   The interception of this detritus and the systematic cleaning of the gullies is a matter of no sinall importance in the economical and efficient maintenance of these storm water drains.

   The cost of removing material from the gullies is much less than that involved in its removal from the drains.

   25. The Peak and Kowloon Sewers-have worked satisfactorily and have been maintained in a sound and sanitary condition. The establishment of a constant system of water supply to the Peak District has doubtless had a marked influence for good in facilitating the removal of house refuse by the water-carriage system and enabling a more constant system of flushing the sewers to be main- tained.

   The total expenditure on the maintenance of sewers and storm water drains throughout the Colony during the past year was $1,110.44 as compared with $1,251.82 during the previous year; this expenditure does not include establishment charges.

NEW WORKS.

   26. New Water Mains and Distributary System of the City of Victoria Water Works.-Considerable progress has been made with the main laying as will be seen from the attached Table C. 9.45 miles of new mains in various parts of the City have been laid and 6.97 miles of old mains have been inspected fitted with valves and bydrants so as to fit them for the services required under the new system.

Four hundred and four Fire Hydrants have been fixed.

27. A Motor house has been constructed over the Motor in Garden Road and accommodation in this building has been provided for one of the overseers in charge of the water works.

28. Fountains have been fixed in various parts of the City rendering water easily accessible to the tenants of property who have not got water laid on into their houses.

   29. During the latter part of the year water has been regularly pumped up to the reservoir south of Inland Lot No. 715 and to that south of Pokfoolum Filter Beds thus rendering a constant service of filtered water at high pressure available in all parts of the district situated between the Pokfoolum Conduit and Caine Road.

   30. The fixing of an Hydraulic Motor near Arbuthnot Road is in progress. When this is completed the pumping at the Bonham Road Station will be considerably relieved and in the event of necessity arising this Motor will be able to do temporarily the duty now performed by the Motor in the Garden Road,

   31. A sum of $71,000 was voted in the year's Estimates for these works and the total expenditure has been $60,533.26.

   With the exception of 1.3 miles of piping still required in the Glenealy Ravine, Kennedytown, Bonham Strand, Hillier and Jervois Streets, where owing to the extensive nature of the drainage works now being carried out, it has been found advisable to postpone the laying of the new water pipes for the present, the whole of the scheme so far as its completion at present is necessary has been com- pleted and filtered water distributed to all parts of the City.

   32. The old mains where not required for the new system or where found defective have been removed. The sound pipes have been cleaned, tarred and placed into store and the unserviceable ones. sold. The cost of this work has been $2,650.88, and the amount realized including the value of those placed in store $3,856.57, shewing a credit balance of $1,205.69, which has been carried to the Water Account.

   33. The total length of water mains existing in the City is 29.16 miles, the number of Fire Hydrants 404, the number of Valves 231, and the number of Public Fountains 102.

   34. House Services.-The demands made on this department to lay on water to private tenements and in many instances to re-model old services or construct new ones within private premises have been very large.

   During the past year 1,976 houses have been connected with the water mains and of these the entire service throughout the premises has been executed by this department in 350 instances, at the cost of the applicant.

The total length of piping that has been laid during the past year is 14 miles varying from " to 1". The expenditure under this heading has been $10,646.36.

The total number of houses now connected with the new mains is 2,575.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

85

 35. Meters.-Seventy meters varying from 3 of an inch to three inches are in use for measuring water supplied to Government Buildings and for trade purposes.

The expenditure under this heading amounts to $2,785.88.

 36. Peak Water Supply.-The works for the supply of water to the Hill District which consist of a pumping station on the Bonham Road at a level of 160 feet above Ordnance Datum in which is installed a triple expansion condensing Engine (High Pressure Cylinder 5 inches diameter. Inter- mediate Pressure Cylinder 9 inches diameter. Low Pressure Cylinder 14 inches diameter) of the Worthington Duplex type actuating double ram pumps 22 inches diameter stroke 9 inches and an hydraulic duplex motor, diameter of cylinders 14 inches actuating differential rams 3 and 5 inches diameter stroke 3 feet. The engine is supplied with steam by a vertical boiler of Beely's Field tube type.

37. In the case of the hydraulic motor the power is obtained from the Pokfoolum Service Reservoir situated on a level of 437 feet above Ordnance Datum. The water after passing through the power cylinder exhausts into the water mains supplying the City. An average back pressure in the exhaust of 25 lbs. on the square inch is maintained by means of a bye-pass fitted with a reducing valve regulated to close on the back pressure exceeding 25 lbs. on the square inch.

The normal piston speed is 65 feet per minute.

 The engine and boiler were supplied by Messrs. JAMES SIMPSON & CO., of Pimlico and the Hydraulic Motor by Messrs. HATHON DAVEY & Co., of London and Leeds.

Provision has also been made in this station for the erection of another hydraulic motor to pump to the reservoir sonth of the Pokfoolum Filter Beds.

A small reservoir has been constructed in the nullah adjoining the station for supplying water to the steam engine condenser.

38. From this station the water is pumped to a reservoir at the Peak at a level of 1,780 feet above Ordnance Datum through a 3-inch rising main 4,390 feet in length laid with hydraulic piping fitted together with screwed socket joints.

This main is for the greater part of its length on the surface and owing to the steep declivity of the hill side secured at intervals with holding down bolts.

Provision is made for expansion and contraction by the irregularity of the line adopted.

39. From the reservoir at the Peak the water is distributed through 1.93 miles of 3 inch piping. Three miles of 2 inch piping and 635 yards of 11?2 inch piping.

The capacity of the reservoir at the Peak is 10,000 gallons.

40. Five other covered reservoirs have been constructed, one near the "Eyrie," one at Mount Kellet, two at Mount Gough, one at Magazine Gap, having a joint capacity of 40,000 gallons. These works are now practically completed. Forty-four houses, including Mount Austin Hotel, in the Hill District have been connected with the water mains.

  The population of the Peak at the last census was 1,100 and the consumption of water is about 20,000 gallons per day.

41. The whole of this work with the exception of the erection of the pumping station buildings has been carried out by this department without the intervention of a contractor.

The money voted was $32,800 and the expenditure has been $28,892.39.

  42. Sewerage Works City of Victoria.-The sewerage works in the High Level District were completed in June last and comprise 3.61 miles of main sewers varying from 12 inches to 6 inches in diameter provided with manholes, ventilators and flushing arrangements. Several houses in this district have been connected with the new sewers.

  43. The sewerage works of District No. 6 W. were commenced in March those of No. 5 W. in September and those in No. 4 W. in November last.

  Of these the sewers in district No. 6 W. have been completed comprising 4.81 miles of sewers varying from 18 inches to 6 inches diameter and provided with manholes, ventilators and flushing arrangements, 1.62 miles of sewers have been completed in District No. 5 W. and half a mile in No. 4 W.

Making the total length of sewers laid within the City during 1891 nine miles.

44. One hundred and eighty gullies have been fixed in these districts.

45. The work of training the nullahs in the Western District of the City has also been completed. 46. The money voted for these works last year was $67,000 and the amount expended $54,737.29. This sum includes $1,262.34 expended in connecting house drains with the public sewers.

  47. Hung Hom Sewerage.-The sewerage of the Village of Hung Hom (population 5,185) commenced in October 1890 has been completed and the drainage of every house in the Village re- arranged and connected with the new system.

This work comprises 12 miles of main sewers 9 inches, and 6 inches in diameter provided with the necessary manholes, ventilators and flushing arrangements also the concreting and channelling of 1,250 square yards of lanes and alleyways.

The money voted for this work was $9,000, the total amount expended $8,120.63.

?

86

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

48. Yaumati Sewerage.-It has not been found possible to proceed with this work during the past year beyond the construction of a short length of sewer inmediately required for the sewerage of three new houses, but the contract drawings have been prepared and tenders advertised for. An early commencement is therefore anticipated.

   49. Water Supply of Kowloon Peninsula.-Owing to the necessary pumping machinery not arriving till the middle of May the testing of the proposed source of water supply had to stand over till this winter. On the commencement of the present dry season the necessary works were pushed on with and there seems every probability of a fair supply being obtained from the valley selected. A detailed survey of this valley has been made and I hope shortly on the completion of the present experiments to lay before you a report on the results obtained and the further works necessary for completing the water supply of the Kowloon Peninsula.

The expenditure to date including the temporary plant now in use has been $5,701.66.

   50. Miscellaneous Minor Works.-The only work under this heading of any importance calling for special notice, is the extension of the Victoria Gap sewer outfall. Owing to the construction of two large hotels draining into this outfall situated on the rising ground to the south of the City, it became necessary on sanitary grounds to extend this outfall to join the sewerage system of the City of Victoria. This work was commenced in November and is now drawing near completion.

The expenditure under this heading has been $1,053.48.

   51. I attach Table D. shewing the total estimated cost of the works being carried out by this department, the amount expended previous to the year 1891 and the amount expended during the year 1891.

   The expenditure on Kowloon Water Supply includes a large quantity of temporary plant, the value of which will on its return to store be credited to this vote.

The sum expended under heading Main Drainage and Sanitary was a re-vote to discharge liabilities incurred in the construction of a storm water drain in Jubilee Street during the year 1890.

   The outstanding liabilities in connection with Extraordinary Public Works amount to about $4.000 which sum will be due on the expiration of the term of maintenance.

52. Plans and Records.-Accurate plans and records of the several works have been prepared as they progressed and are complete up to date.

SIR,

GOVERNMENT CIVIL HOSPITAL,

HONGKONG, September 11th, 1891.

   In accordance with instructions I have made an enquiry into the cause of the whitish appearance of the Taitam and Pokfulam waters at certain seasons of the year, and I have the honour to submit to you the attached report.

   After a careful investigation I found that, as might be inferred from a knowledge of the geological formation of the collecting areas, the waters differ in no material respect as to the nature, and but very little as to the quantities of the dissolved and suspended constituents.

   I have consulted with the Resident Engineer of the Water and Drainage Department, and have shewn him my report, and he concurs with me, in order to avoid delay that it is better to forward you this at once, leaving the joint report on the best practical means of ridding the water of its occasional whitish appearance, until we have had time to consider more in detail the facts I now submit.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your obedient Servant,

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 30TH JANUARY, 1892.

A REPORT ON THE "WHITISH APPEARANCE" OF THE TAITAM

AND POKFULAM WATERS.

87

1. PRELIMINARY:-The hills forming the watersheds of Taitam and Pokfulam consist chiefly of Granite and Syenite. Both are highly felspathic rocks, more or less weathered, disintegration having occurred in some places to such an extent as to form clayey beds of laterite with boulders of unaltered rock lying in them.

2. The water draining from the slopes at these hills constitutes the chief supply of the city, and although in some respects it answers to the description of an "upland surface water," yet it must be taken into consideration that several of the more important streamlets are fed by springs which exist even in seasons of extreme drought.

   3. Except during and immediately after heavy rains the water in these streams is clear, containing less than 5 grains of total solids per gallon, but during and after rainstorms, the waters are rendered turbid from the presence of suspended matter, derived chiefly from the disintegrated granite, to which the reddish colour is due. This undesirable feature is much aggravated wherever the hill sides have been cut into by road making or building operations. Recently this has been partially remedied by turfing over the exposed surfaces, but I doubt if it is now possible, to avoid the deteriorating effect, due to the exposed surfaces of roads. I suggest that no further excavations of any kind should be permitted within the drainage areas without the strictest conditions being enforced, and as far as possible all exposed surfaces turfed.

   4. FILTRATION:-The turbid water that comes down during heavy rains is extremely difficult to filter. It frequently contains as much as 10 grains of finely divided suspended matter in each gallon. At Pokfulam the immediate filtering of water in such a condition is obviated very simply. After a rainstorm the muddy water is allowed to flow directly into the reservoir, where it is immediately discharged by the scouring-out pipe, or undergoes a partial subsidence before being drawn off. As soon however as the principal stream has cleared itself, it is intercepted, and conducted by pipes laid along the bank of the reservoir into the conduit direct. The results of such an arrangement are very apparent. The filtering beds receiving comparatively clear water are not clogged up so quickly, and do not require such frequent cleaning. They are also better able to exercise their purifying and oxidising functions. This is a most important point and should not be overlooked, for if a filter bed has had an almost impermeable layer of clayey material deposited on its surface, it is evident that greater pressure must be brought to bear to force the water through if the normal rate of filtration is to be maintained. This tends to drive fine particles for some distance into the filtering medium, blocking up the interstices, and preventing the efficient working of the filter.

   5. Could the same system be carried out at Taitam, comparatively clear water being led directly to the conduit, a great improvement would be effected. May the 19th last is an instance when after an exceedingly heavy rainfall following a long period of dry weather, the water issuing from the Pokfulam Conduit, contained less than 3 grains per gallon of total solids, while that delivered from Taitam contained 13 grains per gallon. It will be observed that the difference in total solids between these two is 10 grains, chiefly due to matter in suspension, then, supposing two million gallons pass through the beds daily, over one ton per day of suspended matter has to be removed, and this ton of material remains as a gelatinous scum on the surface of the filters.

   6. The sand in use at either works does not seem to be very suitable. Being collected from the sea shore, it contains a great deal of broken shell, which I do not think can be so good a filtering medium as a sand consisting chiefly of quartz grains, broken down sandstone, &c.

   7. It is owing to the composition of the sand that the water is somewhat harder after filtration than it was before. This is no doubt caused by a little Bicarbonate of lime being taken into solution from the action of the Carbonic Acid in the water on the broken shell contained in the sand. This increase in hardness in no way impairs the dietetic value of the water, but is rather an advantage as the water is naturally so very soft.

   8. STORAGE: The storage of the water after filtration is a matter of great importance, especially in the immediate vicinity of towns. The principal companies in England store all their filtered water in covered reservoirs. In a tropical climate the advantages to be derived from following a similar plan would appear to be manifold. At the Pokfulam Filtering Station the filtered water is so stored in a covered tank, where being protected from the direct rays of the sun and all external influences, it is preserved cool and clean, and suffers little if any deterioration.

   9. At the Albany on the contrary, the service tank is open, and in an exposed situation, consequently the water gets heated; loses a part of its dissolved gases, and rapidly becomes flat and vapid. Besides this the surface of the water in the tank never appears to be clean, always containing more or less floating debris, which under the existing conditions cannot possibly be kept out, and probably accounts for the slightly larger amount of Ammonia in excess of the Pokfulam supply.

10. After filtration the water is of a very high standard of purity, notwithstanding its occasional milky appearance. In fact there are very few water supplies equal to this, and I know of none that rank above it. The organic constituents and Chlorine are exceptionally low, and even in its worst condition, the water is softer and contains less total solids than almost any public supply in Great Britain.

11. CAUSE OF WHITISH APPEARANCE:-In my opinion the cause of the whitish

                                           appearance does not originate in the reservoirs or filtering beds as has been supposed, but must be referred to the source of the water.

12. The water falling as rain permeates the rocks, and yields up its dissolved Oxygen and Carbonic Acid to substances capable of combining with them, often penetrating great distances, and probably meeting with subterranean sources of Carbonic Acid which it absorbs, thereby increasing its solvent action. The rocks most acted upon are felspathic, consisting chiefly of Alumina, Iron, Calcium, Mag- nesia, Silica, and the Alkalis. The action of a soft aerated water on such rocks consists not merely in solution, but in the decomposition of the Silicates. The porosity of rocks which such a penetration presupposes is of a very general character, even as regards the most compact rocks. Calcium Silicate is readily decomposed by a solution of Carbonic Acid, Alkaline Carbonates, but Magnesium Silicate is unaffected by either. Of the substances present in spring water, some such as the Earthy Carbonates are no doubt derived from direct solution of the rocks, but there are others such as the Alkaline Car- bonates which do not exist in any rocks. Such substances can only be supposed to originate from the decomposition of the minerals contained within the rocks. It is such a decomposition of minerals contained in rocks that in my opinion causes the whitish appearance of the Taitam and Pokfulam waters. This is not peculiar to Hongkong, but is known in a few other localities, one of which is Worcester, England. The action may be shortly described as consisting in the abstraction of the whole of the Alkali, two thirds of the Silica, and the assumption of water as shewn in the following simple chemical equation :

Silica.

An ultimate product being a hydrated silicate of aluminium, existing as a soft white unctuous powder known as Kaolin. This on account of its low specific gravity and extremely fine state of division remains suspended in the water for an indefinite period, and practically defies simple filtration, even in small quantities except through its own sediment.

13. The following is an extract from a report on the Worcester Water Supply, by the City Analyst, Mr. H. SWETE :-

"The water is taken from the Severn one mile above the city, passed through filter beds "of sand and gravel, (which are cleansed weekly) then pumped up to a reservoir on a hill, "and supplied by gravitation to dwelling houses; 1,600,000 gallons are pumped daily. The "water contains peat and kaolin (white-water) from the decomposition of the Felspathic "rocks in Montgomeryshire...... White-water cannot be clarified by filtration."

Below are the results of an analysis of the Worcester Water, and for the sake of comparison I attach a copy of a recent analysis of the supplies here. I refrain from making any further comment beyond pointing out that if the Carbonate of Lime in the Worcester Water Supply was removed, the figures for practical purposes would be identical. The amount of Carbonate of Lime in the Worcester Water is indicated by the degree of hardness :-

  14. ANALYSIS OF THE MINERAL CONSTITUENTS :-So far as I am aware a complete mineral analysis of the Hongkong water supply has never been published. This being the case, and feeling that an exact knowledge of the mineral constituents of the water would be of value, I have made a careful analysis of the Pokfulam filtered water, and state the results below in grains per gallon.

  This analysis conclusively proves what I have advanced in this report as to the origin of the solids in the water. It should be borne in mind that the quantities of several of the constituents vary according to the time of the year. Owing to the proximity of the reservoir to the sea, strong gales carry the spray inland, which fact alone accounts for a variation in the sodium chloride figure. I have frequently detected the presence of salt in rain, and have estimated the amount. In June last in rain collected near the hospital, in a special apparatus, the quantity of chlorine varied from .77 to 1.1 grains per gallon, which was doubtless due to variations in the force of the wind.

15. CONCLUSIONS:-There remains now only to suggest a possible remedy for the whitish appear- ance of the water. This is a matter of considerable difficulty, and as stated in the covering letter, it has been arranged with the Resident Engineer to make a joint report as directed. I deem it wise however to make some preliminary suggestions in the hope that they may be found of some service.

16. It has been found that the power of water to hold clay in suspension is increased by the presence of small quantities of Alkali, Alkaline Carbonates, or Earthy Carbonates, while it is diminished by addition of small quantities of Sulphuric Acid, Alum, or Sodium Chloride.

17. It seems self-evident that one of the most important things is to do away with the necessity of filtering extremely turbid water by a more extended application of the principle in use at Pokfulam and described in paragraph 4. Secondly, that the ground in the collecting areas should be disturbed as little as possible, and if landslips of any magnitude occur, the freshly exposed surfaces should be protected by turfing or otherwise. It does not seen that much else can be done in the way of prevention. The formation of Kaolin in the water in the first instance cannot be stopped, while as for removing it when formed, by simple filtration, the experience of the Worcester authorities and the Engineer here, is that it cannot be accomplished. Chemical treatment previous to filtration will have to be resorted to, if it is considered essential, to have a perfectly bright water at all seasons of the year. I have made numerous experiments, but I do not think anything would answer on a large scale excepting treatment with an Alum. Several substances if added to turbid water have the property of precipitating the suspended matter, but all are more objectionable than Potash Alum. The Alum treatment has already been the subject of a memoir by Mr. CROW, and will be fully dealt with in a future communication. It should be borne in mind that for a great part of the year, the unfiltered water is comparatively clear and does not require chemical treatment.

18. I desire to add in conclusion that the doubts that I have heard expressed as to the unsuit- ability of the water for drinking purposes are absolutely without foundation. It is a matter for congratulation that the public have such an excellent supply-even although it does at times contain a minute quantity of inert mineral matter, occasioning a faint milky appearance-instead of being largely dependent as they were formerly on a number of shallow wells, which may have yielded a bright and sweet tasting water, but which were in too many instances charged with all kinds of organic filth in various states of decomposition.

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 period of thirty days fixed by Article IX of the Treaty for the Extradition of Criminals in force between the Oriental Republic of the Uruguay and Great Britain, for the provisional arrest of persons charged with any of the crimes or offences specified in the said Treaty, being thoroughly recognized as insufficient, both Governments agree that the said period shall henceforth be fixed at sixty days.

   "In witness whereof the said Plenipotentiaries have caused the present Protocol to be drawn up in duplicate, and have signed both copies, and thereto affixed their seals on the date above expressed.

"(L.S.) "(L.S.)

   Provided always, and it is hereby further ordered that the operation of the said Extradition Acts, 1870 and 1873, shall be suspended within the Dominion of Canada so far as relates to the Oriental Republic of the Uruguay and to the said Treaty and Protocol, and so long as the provisions of the Canadian Act aforesaid of 1886 continue in force, and no longer.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 75.

Notice is hereby given that Messrs. CADBURY BROTHERS, of Bournville, near Birmingham, in the County of Warwick, England, have complied with the requirements of Ordinances 16 of 1873, and 8 of

1886, for the registration in this Colony of their Mark as applied to Cocoa and Chocolate; and that the same has been duly registered.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 4th February; 1892.

W. M. GOODMAN, Acting Colonial Secretary.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 76.

The following Finding of the Marine Court into the loss of the British steamer Namchow, Official No. 63,588, is published.

By Command,

W. M. GOODMAN, Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 13th February, 1892.

FINDING.

We find that the Namchow was a British vessel of 1,109 tons registered tonnage, Official No. 63,588 belonging to the port of Penang.

It appears from the evidence before this Court that she cleared from Hongkong on the 6th instant bound for Amoy with a general cargo and a crew of 68 hands all told as well as not more than 491 passengers.

From the affidavits before the Court it appears that on the night of the 7th instant in the vicinity of Breaker Point the engines stopped and apparently the hull of the vessel was injured water entering and ultimately in spite of attempted repairs the vessel foundered about 8 A.M. on the morning of the

Sth instant.

  All the Europeans on board and between three and four hundred of the passengers and crew were lost. The survivors were saved in fishing boats part reaching the fishing junk in one of the ship's boats and part being rescued from the water. The ship's boats with the one exception that reached the fishing junk appear to have been lowered and swamped alongside when the vessel sank.

Given under our hands this 28th day of January, 1892, at Victoria, Hongkong.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the dook, so that its usefulness is by no means cou- 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.

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.

HONOURABLE GENTLEMEN.-As this is the first time we have met for the transaction of public business, I think that before we deal with the orders of the day I may very properly make some remarks in reference to the position and prospects of the Colony. Doubtless you expect me to do so. As a preface to these remarks I would mention that I am happy to find myself associated in Council with gentlemen several of whom have for a long time devoted their energies to the service of the Colony. I am certain that I shall receive from both official and un-official members that support and assistance which you are so well able to give, and

which have invariably been extended by this Council to a Governor who has, as I claim to have, the true interests of the community at heart. I shall always be ready to receive any advice and suggestions you may tender to me, and to weigh such advice most carefully and respectfully. Our relations will, I trust, be ever of the most harmonious character and the proceedings of the Council conducted with due dignity and decorum. Having only been in the Colony for six weeks I must claim your indulgence if I should appear in any way to fail to appreciate correctly the position of its affairs. The first public document which attracted my attention was naturally the address delivered in this chamber on the 15th of October last, and the Colonial Estimates for 1892 which had been sent home before my arrival. I at once conveyed to the Secretary of State an expression of my opinion that, in one particular at all events, those estimates were framed in far too sanguine a spirit. The principal item which struck me as over-estimated was a most valuable portion of our revenue, namely, the yield of the Opium Farm. There may, of course, have been an object in over-estimating this amount. The figures, I understand, were arrived at in the following manner:-1892, January and February, at the reduced amount agreed upon in 1891, namely, $35,800 per month, equal to $71,600; ten months at the original amount of tender, $39,800 equal to $398,000, making $469,600; add 1891 ten months' arrears at $5,000 per month equal to $50,000, making a total of $519,600. The highest tender which has been received for the next three years is at the rate of $340,000 a year, and therefore the receipts for 1892 will be as follows:-1891, ten months' arrears, at $5,000 per month, $50,000; 1892, January and February at reduced amount, $35,800, $71,600; 1891, ten months' at $28,400 per month, $284,000, making a total of $405,600 and leaving a deficit on the estimated revenue for 1892 of $114,000 and a prospect of $340,800 only from the Opium Farm for 1893 and 1894. It is hardly possible at this moment to state what the actual revenue and expenditure of 1891 have been, but I am informed that the amount collected was $2,019,136 instead of $2,052,098 as estimated. The difference is owing to the fact that land sales realised only $55,325 out of an estimate of $100,000. The total expenditure of 1891 will be as nearly as possible $2,357,488 instead of $2,416,626 the estimated amount. The expenditure therefore for 1891 will have been $338,352 in excess of the revenue. You will of course notice that those figures do not agree with the revised estimates for 1891, which are embodied in the Colonial Estimates issued in October, but they are compiled from the latest returns in the Colonial Treasury. The balance of assets over liabilities on the 31st December was, it is said, about $150,000. This is not a very large sum and points to the necessity of economy in the future. It will be my duty to prevent any ordinary expenditure therefore which is not absolutely necessary. There are some satisfactory features in the returns for 1891. For example, stamps were estimated to yield $179,356; there have been collected $193,959, showing an excess over the estimate of $14,603. The revenue from this source in 1890 was $203,160, an excessive yield which can easily be explained. In the Registrar General's departinent there has been an increase of $7,138; in the Supreme Court a decrease of $4,000. In the returns of that Court there is one most gratifying feature, namely, a remarkable decrease in the number of criminal cases tried. They amounted in 1891 to only 32, whereas the average from 1882 to 1886 was 87, and the average from 1887 to 1890 73 per annum. There is only one other item to which I would call special attention, and that is the tonnage of shipping in and out during 1891. My predecessor in one of his able and elaborate speeches stated that the total tonnage in and out in 1890 was 13 million tons, and he regarded it as phenomenal; but it may surprise you to learn that notwithstanding a slight shrinkage in the foreign junk trade, which is principally owing to the river steamers having absorbed the carriage of kerosine and matches, the shipping in and out last year represented no less than 14,005,698 tons.

                                         Some very interesting and lucid returns from the Acting Harbour Master in reference to this stupendous traffic will shortly be published. During the last six weeks I have visited nearly every public institution and every public department. No stranger coming to Hongkong can fail to be struck with the magnificent works which have been and are being carried out by the Public Works department; the water and drainage works, Bowen Road, the great Reclamation Scheme, and the Central Market are and will be lasting monu- ments of the energy and ability of that department as well as of the liberality of the Legislative Council. But there are other works which have been recently executed or are nearing completion which might, in view of diminishing assets, have fairly been postponed until more prosperous times. With regard to the future, it is evident that if the public works extraordinary described in pages 43 and 44 of the Estimates are to be carried out, and I assume for the moment that their necessity with perhaps very few exceptions is admitted, the revenue will not be able to bear the expenditure without a considerable increase of taxation. To my mind it is both unfair and illogical to tax the present generation for public improvements which will be of more benefit to posterity than they can be to existing taxpayers, and the only way of proceeding with these undertakings is by a loan, the Council having previously approved of the detailed estimates and designs as the case may be in respect of each of those works. I am sure that you will give me a patient hearing if I deal with this question at some length on the assumption that a loan must be contracted, and that with little delay.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1892. 155

Before doing so I would remark with regard to the proposed expenditure in 1892 that it is possible that a saving can be effected under item 9, improvement of the Recreation Ground. The lowering of Queen's Road West has been abandoned. The re-construction of Governor's residence at the Peak cannot be undertaken. The house is in a most dilapidated condition, and according to the report of the Surveyor-General practically unfit for occupation. It would be unsafe to attempt to repair it. Doubtless the Council will not object to a revote of a portion of the $10,000 voted for the repair of Mountain Lodge for the hire of a residence for the Governor and his family if necessary. As to the contemplated Gaol extension I have asked the Secretary of State to allow me to postpone it for a short time in the hope that more economical arrangements can be made than those which have been proposed. This matter is engaging my most anxious consideration, but no doubt a large expenditure for additional accommodation will be required. The revenue for 1892, owing to the diminution by $114,000 of the opium farm receipts, will be $2,030,178 instead of $2,144,178, and the ordinary expenditure $1,773,918, leaving an estimated surplus of $256,260. The balance of assets over liabilities is said to be $150,000, making, with that surplus, $406,260. The proposed expenditure for 1892 on public works extraordinary is $680,000, which may perhaps be reduced to $640,000. The total sum required for all the public works extraordinary in contemplation is say $2,680,000. Of this sum upwards of $900,000 was expended to the 31st December last, leaving a balance of $1,780,000 to be provided in 1892 and subsequent years. Assuming that $640,000 is spent during 1892 the surplus and assets amounting to $406,260 will be swallowed up and a further sum of over $233,000 will have to be found before the 31st of December, 1892. From the correspondence which took place previous to the loan of 1881 the Secretary of State for the Colonies is clearly averse to raising a fresh loan until there is no escape from that obligation. From a glance at the figures I have quoted it is evident that the time has arrived when this matter must be grappled with, and if these works are to be undertaken Government must be in a position to supply funds for their completion within the next three or four years. By the end of the year it is possible that the Colony will be in debt to the Crown Agents, it may be to the extent of $233,000. This sum the Crown Agents could borrow at a reasonable rate, provided that in the meantime an Ordinance was passed by the Council authorising the issue of a loan. If this could be arranged the raising of the loan might be postponed until the end of the year. Before that time arrives, however, it must be settled what amount will be required, what form the loan should take, whether it is to be raised by lump sum or by instalments, and whether it shall be a gold or a silver loan. As to the amount, you will see that if $640,000 is spent in 1892, the Colony will owe the Crown Agents $233,000, and there will remain a balance of $1,140,000 to be provided in 1893 and future years, making a total liability of some $1,373,000--say $1,400,000. This sum, (there or thereabouts,) may therefore be taken as the amount of the loan required; and the Ordinance should give power to borrow up to that amount. the form of the loan, the Government in my opinion cannot do better than issue it in the same way as the existing one, viz., by the sale of debentures, with a sinking fund sufficient to redeem in twenty years, with the option of paying it off at any time after five years. With regard to borrowing in a lump sum or by instalments, it is manifest that if the Colony could get equally good terms it would be desirable to adopt the latter alternative. In 1866-7 the Crown Agents borrowed $138,000 for the Colony in this way, at an average rate of 33 per cent., pending the issue of debentures. Application might be made at once to the Secretary of State as to the rate the Colony would have to pay for such temporary convenience. From the Colonial Hansard it appears that in 1886-7, and indeed much more recently, the question of a silver loan as against a gold loan was discussed. Unless silver can be borrowed on the same terms in regard to interest as gold, a gold loan would be more advantageous than a silver one. The Crown Agents have large gold payments to make for the Colony, and if a silver loan was raised the whole amount would have to be remitted to the Crown Agents in the course of two or three years, and the Colony would have to take the risk of an adverse exchange. If a gold loan is raised none of it need be remitted to England, as it might be absorbed in meeting gold payments at home, and the Colony would be relieved for a time of the cost of transferring money to England to meet the requirements of the Crown Agents. In such a case there could be no difficulty in meeting any objection that might arise in reference to the loan account not being kept distinct from the general financial transactions of the Colony. It would be simply "a matter of account," as it is called, and full information on the subject could be published every month or every quarter by the Treasurer, as the Council might desire. Judging from the state of the share market at home, a loan could be raised at home at 33 or 4 per cent. at the outside, whilst here it would cost at least 4 per cent. Had a silver loan been raised in 1888 in precisely the same form as the gold one, it would have cost the Colony up to September last $69,000 more than the remittances for the gold loan. The equivalent of the $1,400,000 which the Colony will most likely have to borrow is at the present time, at say 3s., equal to £210,000. Members of the Council will doubtless concur in the opinion that an Ordinance similar to that of 1886 (No. 10) should be introduced, authorising the borrowing of a sum not exceeding £210,000 at the end of

As to

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27?H FEBRUARY, 1892.

1892, or at any time after 30th June, 1892, should the state of the market be favourable. I have already stated that the estimated surplus of revenue over ordinary expenditure for 1892 will be about $256,260, and there appears no reason to doubt, notwithstanding the decrease in the opium revenue, that a similar amount will be available in future years, if the expenditure is carefully watched. It must not be forgotten that considerable additions to the revenue will be derived at no very distant date from the new Central Market and the depots for slaughtering cattle, so that looking to these and other sources of revenue, I do not think that by borrowing £210,000 a too heavy burden would be imposed upon the revenue of the Colony. That it should have fallen to my lot in my first address to the Council to suggest that it should consent to an increase of the public debt is to be regretted, but I cannot flinch from the responsibilities of my office, and I anticipate that the Council will be prepared to share this responsibility, as my views as to the necessity of such a course coincide with those of some of my predecessors, as well as those of several honourable members. The question is one of great urgency, however inadequately and imperfectly it may have been brought before you. In speaking of the loan I should say I have adopted throughout the use of round numbers, as being least confusing, and the amounts I have quoted must be regarded as approximate only. It would, in my opinion, be most satisfactory to the com- munity if a Committee were appointed to consider the subject fully and in all its bearings. Should the Council agree in that view, I would nominate the following gentlemen to be a Com- mittee for that purpose, feeling sure that they will readily place their valuable services at the disposal of the Government:-The Honourables the Registrar General, the Colonial Treasurer, C. P. CHATER, J. J. KESWICK, and T. H. WHITEHEAD. In order to assist them I would appoint the Clerk of Councils as Secretary, giving him authority to lay before the Committee any official papers and returns that may be called for or may tend to throw light on the financial position or the future prospects of the Colony. Before concluding I should like to say that, having regard to the history of the past, and notwithstanding the somewhat gloomy picture my financial statement presents, I have every confidence in the future of Hongkong. It is true that the Colony has passed and is passing through a period of severe depression, but there are distinctly favourable and promising indications of better times to come. I have been very much struck by the peaceful, sober, and industrious habits of the Chinese. I hope the leading members of that community fully understand that they and their compatriots will have in me a Governor, a friend, and a supporter in all their reasonable aspirations. It is my most anxious desire to see greater attention paid in our elementary and secondary schools to the teaching of the English language, and this matter I hope to take up before the end of the vacation. The establishment and recent extension of sugar refineries, dock accommodation, brick and cement and rope works are healthy signs, and indicate the advantages which would accrue to the population generally from a further encouragement of local industries. The community may rely upon my aid and assistance in fostering in every legitimate way the development of such enterprises. It will also be my endeavour to cultivate harmonious and friendly relations with the Government author- ities of the mainland of China, with which we are so closely connected geographically and commercially. I am afraid, gentlemen, that my remarks have been somewhat prolix, and that I may have been guilty of repetition, but the occasion is undoubtedly an important as well as an interesting one, and that must be my excuse if I have erred in those directions. I thank you for your forbearance, and in claiming your confidence and support I can honestly assert that during my tenure of office I shall try by every means in my power to promote as far as possible the well-being of the community, and to maintain the efficiency of the public service.

(2.) Every such petition shall be accompanied by a speci- fication of the said invention identical as far as practicable with the specification filed on the petition for Letters Patent for the said invention in England, and by a decla- ration which may be in the form set forth in schedule B. or in such other form not being less specific as to the Governor shall appear proper.

(3.) Every such declaration shall be made before some person duly authorised to administer an oath in the country where it is made and every person who shall knowingly make any untrue or false statement in any such declaration shall upon conviction be liable to the penalties of perjury.

3. Such petition, specification and declaration shall be sent to the office of the Colonial Secretary, and notice thereof and of any intention to apply for such Letters Patent, and of the time of the sitting of the Executive Council before which the matter of the petition will come for decision together with such other particulars as the Governor shall require, shall be inserted twice in the Gazette, and shall be otherwise advertised as the Governor shall direct.

4. The Governor in Council shall, at the sitting to be so appointed for deciding on such petition for Letters Patent as aforesaid or at any adjournment thereof, determine on such application for Letters Patent and grant or refuse the prayer of the said petition as shall appear expedient, and for such time or times not exceeding the then duration of the Letters Patent for the said invention or for any less period and subject to such conditions in all respects as to the Governor in Council shall seem fit. The said Letters Patent may be in such form as is prescribed by The Patents Designs and Trade Marks Acts 1883 to 1888 or any Rules made thereunder or as near thereto as circumstances will permit.

5.

6. In case Her Majesty shall, by the advice of the Judicial Committee of Her Majesty's Privy Council, extend the privileges of any Letters Patent in England for any invention for any period, it shall be lawful for the Governor in Council to extend in like manner such Letters Patent if already granted for this Colony or otherwise to grant original Letters Patent for a like extended period for the same invention.

7. (1.) There shall be kept at the Colonial Secretary's Office a book called "The Register of Patents" in which shall be entered the names and addresses of all grantees of patents under this Ordinance, notifications of assignments and of transmissions of such patents and of extensions and revoca- tions thereof.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 91.

   The following Report on the Junk Trade for 1891, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 25th instant, is published.

By Command,

W. M. GOODMAN, Acting Colonial Secretary.

No. 20.

H. O. No. 330 of 9th July,

1891.

HARBOUR DEPARTMENT, HONGKONG, 11th January, 1892.

SIR,-In continuation of former correspondence marginally noted, I have the

H. O. No. 342 of 15th July, honour to furnish herewith statistics of the junk trade.

1891.

I. E. O. No. 14 of 15th

H. O. No. 529 of 15th

October, 1891.

tached to Memo. dated

3. The favourable geographical position of this Colony renders it a great distributing centre; the Extract from Table 7 at large trade focussing here reaches its terminal markets partly in coasting steamers 27th July, 1891, in and partly in junks. Of the 2,753 European constructed vessels visiting the port C.S.O. 1,474 of 1891. in 1890, fifteen hundred and twenty-eight or considerably more than half and this half nearly double the size in tonnage ship for ship of the other moiety were vessels visiting the port twelve times or less, i.e., craft bringing trade acting as feeders to the Colony not as distributing agents that necessary part being performed by the remaining 1,235 smaller vessels plying to the port more than 12 times in the year. In the same year 23,343 junks in foreign trade with a total tonnage of 1,786,038 (or roughly speaking half the figures shown in paragraph 3 of the Annual Report those quoted, there being the total in and out) assisted in the distribution of trade from this centre, taking the totals of the Report of 93 millions tons about two-thirds or 64 millions were the feeders and one- third or 34 millions the distributors assisted by 3 millions tons of junks. The European vessels being for the most part steamers of course carried by far the largest portion of the trade. The year 1890. was a bad one for the rice trade as was also 1891 and in the first named the number of small European steamers competing with junks became very marked and has not decreased.

   4. In the year 1890, eight thousand two hundred and nineteen European constructed vessels with a total of 9,771,741 tons passed through the port giving employment to 46,686 junks aggregating 3,572,079 tons in foreign trade and 9,082 junks making up 332,473 tons in local trade, i.e., the ports of the island.

5. In 1891, the corresponding numbers are European vessels 8,707 measuring 10,279,043 tons or an increase of 488 ships with 507,302 tons and junks in foreign trade 45,403 with a total tonnage of 3,263,118 tons or a decrease in numbers of 1,283 junks representing 308,961 tons at the same time the junks in local trade run up to 11,930 equivalent to 463,537 tons or an increase over the previous year numbering 2,848 junks aggregating 131,064 tons. It is not credible that the increase of the local traffic satisfactorily accounts for the increased volume of trade and the decrease

of the foreign junk trade.

   7. Special Permits are the monthly renewals of licences exempting the holders from reporting on each separate occasion of arriving taken out by licensed junks when in the waters of the Colony. Fishing junks under 100 piculs are further allowed to take these licences every six months only. The

average for the three years 1887-1889 inclusive, it will be seen, is licensed vessels 2,562, the revenue derived directly therefrom in licences $8,000.25 and in permits $597.75, a total of 8,598 out of a grand total of $19,720.

8. For the average of three years 1887 to 1889 inclusive and the years 1890 and 1891 the propor- tions are therefore as follows:-

'87-'89. '90. '91.

Licensed Junks.

Revenue for Do. Total Junk Revenue.

8,598 9,956 10,821.25

19,720 22,397.75 22,602.50

9. The proportion of revenue derived from unlicensed junks, therefore, it will be seen, by no means increases pro rata as that from licensed junks taking the years 1890 and 1891 as examples the tonnage returns also bear this out. It may be said as more junks are licensed there are fewer unlicensed ones to take out Anchorage Passes, Clearances, &c., but comparison of the years of 1889 and 1890 disposes of that theory.

   10. In 1890, 285 more vessels were licensed than in 1889, the revenue increased $3,000, and the foreign junk trade rose 154,748 tons, and the local 49,103 directly, no doubt, due to an increase in European tonnage of 799,751 tons.

11. In 1891, with an increase of half a million tons, 355 more junks were licensed with a gain to the Treasury of $204.75, a decrease in the foreign junk trade of three hundred thousand tons and an increase in the local junk trade of 130,000 or a net loss of 170,000 tons, to say nothing of the money thereby put out of circulation.

12. That there was no loss to the carrying trade, of course, is patent rather a gain to steamers, but hitherto gain to both ships and junks has gone on side by side with profit to the Colonial Treasury from both; consolidating the earnings of one or other means proportionate loss to the revenue.

13. In the years under review the conditions have been the same; a steady increase in Ocean borne traffic, bad rice trade (taking the years through), and increasing competition from small steam vessels, but under ordinary circumstances the increase of the great source of supply the Ocean trade was sufficient to preserve the equilibrium. In the 3rd quarter of 1891, indeed as is shown in letter No. 529 dated 15th October, not alone was the rice trade good, but a fictitious impetus had been given to the junk trade by the quarrels of the Chinese Custom Houses, native and foreign.

14. In that quarter there is a loss as shown in the statement attached (Table V) of $28.75 though all conditions save the preventible one were favourable.

Tables III to VI.

15. Tables III to VI represent quarterly statements of the junk trade, the total amounts for 1890 and 1891 are respectively $22,559.50 and 22,700.00, the apparent discrepancy between that and the amounts heretofore given as the junk revenue for the years under review is accounted for by the fact that the collections from out-stations for December are only received four or five days after the end of each year and so are reckoned in the following year.

Table VII.

16. Table VII is the monthly comparative statement for December and also the yearly one for 1890 and 1891.

17. The only controllable causes of the depression of the junk trade are the suppression of the system of espionage established by the Chinese Customs in Hongkong, and the preservation of the neutrality of British waters.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 93.

   The following Report of the Acting Captain Superintendent of Police for 1891, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 25th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 27th February, 1892.

No. 17.

W. M. GOODMAN, Acting Colonial Secretary.

POLICE DEPARTMENT,

CAPTAIN SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 22nd January, 1892.

   SIR, I have the honour to submit for the information of His Excellency the Governor the Police Report for the year 1891.

2. The total number of offences coming under the cognizance of the Police was 10,869, being an increase on the year 1890 of 2,445 cases, giving an increase of 29.02 per cent.

Subdivided into serious and minor offences (so-called) there were in 1891, 2,994 cases of the former class as against 3,100 cases in 1890, shewing a decrease of 106 or 3.41 per cent; and in the latter class 7,875 cases in 1891, as compared with 5,324 cases in 1890, giving an increase of 2,551 cases or 47.91 per cent.

3. This rather large increase is to be accounted for by the number of arrests made for "Unlicensed Hawking," "Uttering Street Cries" and contraventions of the "Markets Ordinance," the "Opium Ordinance" and the "Gambling Ordinance."

   4. The European Force has been increased by 1 Sergeant and 4 Constables. The present strength of the Force is as under :-

Captain Superintendent,

Deputy

Clerks,

"}

Chief Inspector,

Inspectors,

Interpreters,

Chinese.

5. Three new Police Stations were completed during the year, one at Aberdeen, one at Tsat-Tsye- Mui (Quarry Bay), and one at Kennedy Town. The latter has not yet been occupied by the Police in consequence of the non-completion of the new approach road.

   6. Owing to the extent of the Police beats in the Hill District, one of the three standard Police Electric Alarms obtained from England in 1890, has been placed at the Magazine Gap, and connected with the Mount Gough Police Station, and I have recommended that the other two standards or "Call Points" be fixed, one at Mount Kellet Spur, and the other at Plantation Road.

7. In my Annual Report on the Government Fire Brigade for 1891, I have called attention to the disadvantages of the present system of overhead Electric Light wires in the city. From a Police point of view the disadvantages are equally great. On the occasion of a fire in Queen's Road Central on the morning of the 6th May, it was considered necessary, in order to prevent an accident to the firemen, to shut off the current, thereby placing a part of the city in darkness during the'confusion which more or less always occurs at fires; and again on the night of the storm, the 3rd December, just at a time the work of rescuing persons from boats alongside the Praya was going on, the Electric Light on Praya West failed in consequence of the lines being damaged by the masts of a junk.

I have the honour to be,

Honourable W. M. GOODMAN,

Acting Colonial Secretary,

   SIR, I have the honour to forward, under this enclosure, the Annual Report of the Government Central School for Girls for 1891, presented by Mrs. BATEMAN, the Headmistress.

   2. The examination of this School, conducted by myself, has shewn very satisfactory results, such as testify to the efficiency of the teaching given both by the Headmistress and by the Assistant Teacher, Mrs. LEUNG. I have found clear evidence of steady progress in the attainments of the children in almost every subject. The general tone of the School and the relations existing between the scholars and the teachers are highly commendable.

   3. As to the suggestion made in the enclosed report regarding the appointment of an additional pupil-teacher which even now seems much needed, I will make a recommendation in a separate docu- ment as soon as the School re-assembles after the Chinese New Year's holidays, when it will be seen more clearly what addition to the staff will be required on account of increased attendance.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

I.-Resume of the School's Aims and Progress.

   This School was opened on 1st March, 1890, for the purpose of providing an ordinary middle class English education for the daughters of Eurasian, European, Indian and Chinese residents in this Colony.

The staff consisted of-

(1.) An English trained certificated Mistress.

(2.) An Assistant Mistress (Chinese).

(3.) A Teacher of Chinese.

In the first month (March, 1890) 34 pupils were enrolled, and at the end of December, 1890, there were 45 children in regular attendance.

The year

       1891 closed with the number of 87 scholars on the register, showing an increase of more than 50 per cent. The regularity of the attendance is most satisfactory.

Subjoined is a list of the average attendance for January to December, 1891.-

June,............59

July,....... .61

.52.5

August,.........58.5

December, ...69.39

?????

.55

September, ...51.4

The above numbers will speak for themselves of the rapid development of the School and that it evidently supplies a need of the Colony.

    In August Miss WARD resigned her duties as Headmistress of the School, and the undersigned took her place on 1st September, 1891.

II.-Work of the year.

The School is in two divisions-Upper and Lower. The former consists of the more advanced English-speaking girls and these are taught by the Headmistress who is now assisted by a Pupil-

teacher.

The instruction given consists of Reading, Arithmetic, English Composition, Grammar and Analysis, Geography, Map Drawing, History and Needlework.

The Lower Division is in charge of the Chinese Assistant Mistress by whom they are taught English Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Dictation.

The study of classical Chinese, which is taught by the Chinese teacher of the Headmistress, is optional.

III.--Suggested Improvements.

    Should the number of pupils continue to increase as they have done during the past year, (and there is every probability that it will be so), the present building will be quite inadequate to accom- modate a larger number, the space at the present time being very limited.

    The want of a play-ground is also a great drawback, as there is no means of giving physical exercises, this being almost indispensable in giving a healthy tone to the School.

    The appointment of an additional pupil-teacher is desirable to assist the Chinese Mistress in the Lower School, as it is impossible for one person to give efficient teaching to so large a number.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable W. M. GOODMAN,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.--No. 95.

The following Report of the Acting Superintendent of Victoria Gaol for 1891, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 25th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 27th February, 1892.

W. M. GOODMAN, Acting Colonial Secretary.

No. 18.

SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE, VICTORIA GAOL,

HONGKONG, 22nd January, 1892.

   SIR,-I have the honour to forward for His Excellency's information the Annual Report on the Prison for 1891.

   2. I took over charge of the Prison from Major-General GORDON on the 1st April, on which date he proceeded to England on leave of absence.

   3. The conduct of the Gaol Staff during the year has, with some exceptions, not been particularly good, but I hope with the engaging of some reliable men in England it may be improved in the

future.

   4. There has been a decrease in the average number of prisoners confined in the Gaol, the number being 507 as compared with 566 in 1890.

   This, however, has been accompanied by a large increase in the number of admissions, the numbers being 5,221 and 3,444 respectively, from which it may be inferred that the number of short sentence prisoners is increasing and the number of long sentence prisoners is decreasing.

The daily maximum for the year was 590.

   5. During the year there were 25 prisoners sentenced for returning from banishment. In view of the frequency of these convictions I have laid it down that such prisoners are to be treated more severely than hitherto in the matter of hard labour, of course, consistently with the rules for the management of the Gaol.

   6. Nothing has been done during the past year to introduce the separate system of confinement on a general plan.

It is, in the absence of flogging, the only effective system of imprisonment.

   Extra room is required for officers'. quarters, in which no dining or recreation rooms are provided; the Warden should live in the Gaol, and the present arrangement of the Female Prison is in many ways a most objectionable one.

   In the absence of proper yard accommodation the rules as to the classification and separation of prisoners cannot be carried out, while the general needs of the Prison as to store-rooms, &c., have not been sufficiently attended to.

With the present cramped space at command effective supervision is impossible.

   7. During the year there have been 11,714 prison offences committed by a daily average of 507 prisoners, being over 23 offences by each prisoner as compared with 20 in 1890.

I append the usual comparative returns of the most common of those offences.

   8. There has been an increase in industrial earnings during the year, the total being $4,248.55, as compared with $3,488.39 in 1890. The usual returns are appended.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable W. M. GOODMAN,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

A. M. THOMSON, Acting Superintendent.

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.

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.

6. The opinion of the Board upon any question occupying its attention, shall be the opinion of the majority of the members of the Board present, or of the members by whom the question may be considered.

If the Board is equally divided in its opinion the Chairman, whether he be the regular Chairman of the Board or Chairman pro tem., shall have a casting in addition to his ordinary vote.

7. All examinations in Chinese colloquial shall, as a rule, be conducted through the medium of a native.,
