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.

WILLIAM ROBINSON,

? Governor.

[16th January, 1893.] HEREAS it is expedient to define in one Ordinance the terms and conditions applicable to Loans here- after authorised to be raised by the Legislature of the Co- lony of Hongkong.

And whereas it is expedient to provide for the creation of Inscribed Stock, and to enable this Colony to take ad- vantage of the provisions of the Acts of the Imperial Par- liament, intituled The Colonial Stock Acts 1877 and 1892.

G. T. M. O'BRIEN, Colonial Secretary.

Preamble.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 21ST JANUARY, 1893.

Definition.

Loans to be raised by Inscribed Stock.

Loans to be

a charge upon General

Revenue.

Borrowing upon In- scribed Stock

When the

principal is to be repaid.

Mode of pro- viding for payment of Interest and Principal.

Investment

of Sinking Fund.

Any deficiency in Sinking Fund to be made good out of General Revenues.

Expenses to be paid out of Sinking Fund.

Be it therefore enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:--

1. In this Ordinance unless the context otherwise re- quires─

The expression "Governor " means the person for the time being administering the Government of Hongkong.

The expression "Crown Agents" means the person or persons for the time being acting as Crown Agents for the Colonies in England.

2. As often as by any ordinance authority shall have been given or shall hereafter be given to raise any sum of money whether by Debentures or otherwise for the purpose mentioned in such Ordinance, the Governor may from time to time raise such sum by the issue of Inscribed Stock to Le called "Hongkong Inscribed Stock."

3. The principal moneys and interest secured by the Inscribed Stock issued under the provisions of this Ordi- nance are hereby charged upon and shall be payable out of the General Revenues and assets of the Government of Hongkong.

4. Such Stock shall be issued in England by the Crown Agents under the provisions of the Acts of the Imperial Parliament intituled The Colonial Stock Acts 1877 and 1892, upon the best and most favourable terms that can be obtained, provided that the interest on such Inscribed Stock shall not exceed 43 per centum per annum.

5. All the Inscribed Stock which may be created under the provisions of this Ordinance shall be redeemable at par on a date to be named in that behalf by the Crown Agents when issuing the Stock, such date not being later than fifty years from the date of issue. From and after which date all interest on the principal moneys secured thereby shall cease and determine whether payment of the principal shall have been demanded or not.

6. So long as any of the Inscribed Stock shall remain unconverted or unredeemed the Governor shall in each half year ending with the day on which the interest on such Inscribed Stock falls due, appropriate out of the General Revenues and assets of the Government of Hongkong a sum equal to one half-year's interest on the whole of such Inscribed Stock, and shall remit that sum to the Crown Agents at such time as will enable them to pay thereout the then current half-year's interest on the day when it falls due. After the date specified in the Ordinance authorizing an issue of Inscribed Stock as that on which the contribu- tion to the Sinking Fund shall commence the Governor shall further appropriate out of the said Revenues and Assets in each half-year ending as aforesaid an additional sum for the formation of a Sinking Fund equal to ten shillings per centum on the total nominal amount of such Inscribed Stock and shall remit that sum to the Crown Agents with the remittance hereinbefore mentioned.

7. The contribution to the Sinking Fund shall be applied as follows:--

(a) If the price of the Inscribed Stock be below par at the time when the contributions are received the Crown Agents may, if practicable, purchase therewith the Inscribed Stock in the market and shall cancel in the Register the Stock so pur- chased.

(b) The Crown Agents shall invest so much of the con- tributions as shall not be applied in the purchase of Inscribed Stock, and the dividends, interest, or produce of such investments in the purchase of such Debenture, Stock, or other security, as may from time to time be approved by Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies, and shall hold such fund in trust for repayment of the principal moneys for the time being secured by the Inscribed Stock.

8. In case the Sinking Fund shall be insufficient to pro- vide the necessary Funds for the redemption of the Inscribed Stock when it shall become due, the deficiency shall be made good out of the General Revenues and assets of Hongkong.

9. All expenses of or incidental to the management of the Sinking Fund or to the repayment of the principal moneys borrowed shall be paid out of the Sinking Fund.

of them :

(a) He may declare all or any of the Loans issued by or on behalf of Hongkong whether existing in the form of Stock or Debentures and inclusive of the loan issued under Ordinance No. 11 of 1886 the short title whereof is The Loan Ordinance 1886 to be convertible into Inscribed Stock to be issued under the provisions of this Ordinance.

(b) He may authorize the creation and issue of such amount of Inscribed Stock in exchange for the Securities held for such Loans as may be ne- cessary.

(c) He may authorize the creation and sale of any such Inscribed Stock for the purpose of raising money for redeeming any outstanding Loans, for paying any expenses in the creation of In- scribed Stock, and otherwise for carrying out the provisions of this Ordinance.

(d) Any conversion so authorized may be effected either by arrangement with the holders of exist- ng Securities or by urchase thereof out of moneys raised by the sale of Inscribed Stock, or partly in one way and partly in the other. 11. Nothing in this Ordinance contained shall authorize an increase of the capital or of the annual charge on any Loan except-

(a) When Securities exchanged for Inscribed Stock bear a higher rate of interest than the Inscribed Stock an additional amount of Inscribed Stock may be created and issued to make up the differ- ence in saleable value between the Securities and the Inscribed Stock.

(b) In the case of the conversion of securities into Inscribed Stock, the Crown Agents shall issue such an amount of Inscribed Stock as may be required to defray the Stamp duties and all other expenses incidental to the conversion.

12. The Securities exchanged or otherwise converted into Inscribed Stock under the provisions of this Ordinance shall be forthwith cancelled by the Crown Agents, and the Debentures surrendered shall be cancelled and transmitted to the Government of Hongkong.

13. The Trustees of the Sinking Fund appointed under the Ordinance authorizing the issue of any Securities which may be exchanged into Inscribed Stock or cancelled or purchased under the provisions of this Ordinance, shall determine what amount of the Sinking Funds held by them and created for the repayment of such securities shall be released and in the determination of such question the Trustees shall take into consideration the value of the whole investments held by them on account of such Sinking Funds, the amount of the Debt remaining a charge on such Sinking Funds, and such other matters as the Trustees may think fit to take into account.

14. So much of the Sinking Funds as may be released shall be converted into money and paid by the Trustees to the Crown Agents for the credit of Hongkong to be disposed of in such manner as the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council, may direct.

15. The Crown Agents may from time to time, at the request of the Governor, make arrangements for all or any of the following things:-

(a) No such marriage shall be celebrated unless both the parties are able to signify their consent thereto and do so in presence of two witnesses. (b) No such marriage shall be celebrated where either of the parties is under twenty-one years of age, not being a widower or widow, unless the per- son whose consent is required is present and gives his or her consent verbally.

(c) No such marriage shall be valid which would be null and void on the ground of kindred or affinity, in England.

(d) The minister celebrating any such marriage shall, within 7 days from the celebration thereof, for- ward to the Registrar General a certificate in the form in the Schedule hereto. Such certi- ficate shall be signed by such minister and where practicable by the persons so married and by the witnesses to the marriage, and if either of the parties is unable to sign the minis- ter shall certify accordingly. The Registrar General shall file such certificate in his Office. No marriage celebrated under the provisions of this Ordi- nance shall be valid unless the foregoing conditions are observed.

3. No marriage in articulo mortis shall revoke any Will or Codicil previously made by either of the parties to such marriage, but such Will or Codicil shall have the same validity as if such marriage had not taken place.

4. (1) Whosoever shall knowingly celebrate any mar- riage in purported pursuance of this Ordinance contrary to or not in accordance with any provision thereof and who- soever not being legally competent shall celebrate any mar- riage under this Ordinance shall be guilty of a misdemea- nour and upon conviction thereof before the Supreme Court shall be liable to be imprisoned for any term not exceeding 2 years with or without hard labour.

WOOSUNG INNER BAR.

"Feima Channel:" precautions to be taken to prevent collisions.

Notice is hereby given that the depth in the fairway of the "Feima Channel" (as the passage between the wreck of the S.S. "FEIMA" and the right or Pheasant Point bank of the river is called) is at present greater by 2 feet than the depth signaled for the line of the old Woosung Inner Bar Marks.

Two poles on the left or western bank of the river-the low one near the river carrying a triangular mark, and the high one, further inland, a diamond-shaped mark-when kept in line, indicate the fairway course through this new channel.

In order to facilitate traffic and prevent accidents it is recommended that the following Rules be observed by all vessels approaching the Woosung Inner Bar:-

1.-Vessels intending to pass through the "Feima Channel" should hoist "V" of the International Code (a white flag with a red diagonal cross) at the fore; inward bound vessels to display it on passing the Woosung Spit Buoy, and outward bound ones to display it on passing the upper end of Gough Island.

2.--Not more than one vessel at a time should attempt to pass through the "Feima Channel" or over the shoalest

part of the Bar, in the line of the old Bar Marks.

3.-Vessels approaching the Bar when the signals show sufficient water for them to cross on the line of the old bar

marks, should not use the "Feima Channel" but leave it free for larger vessels.

4.-A very careful look out should be kept by all vessels approaching the Bar, and those having the tide against them should wait for those going with the tide to pass first; also a vessel overtaking another should regulate her speed so as to allow the one ahead to get clear of the Bar first.

As the bed of the river in the vicinity of the Bar is liable to frequent changes, Captains and Pilots wishing to obtain the latest information as to depth of water, etc., should apply either at the Harbour Master's Office, Shanghai, or to the Berthing Officer in charge of the Woosung Signal Station.

DRAFT BILL ·

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to amend "The Hongkong

W

Code of Civil Procedure."

HEREAS it is expedient to amend the Hongkong Code of Civil Procedure so far as relates to suits by and against persons carrying on business in names other than their own.

Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:

1. Section XIV. of the Hongkong Code of Civil Pro- cedure is hereby repealed but such repeal shall not affect anything done or suffered thereunder, nor any suit or pro- ceeding to which this Ordinance does not apply.

2. In lieu of the section hereby repealed the following section shall be read and substituted, viz. :-

---

Proceedings by or against Firms.

XIV. (1) Any two or more persons claiming or being liable as co-partners and carrying on business within the jurisdiction may sue or be sued in the name of the respective firms, if any, of which such persons were co-partners at the time of the accruing of the cause of ac on; and any party to a suit may in such case apply by summons to a judge for a statement of the names and addresses of the persons who were, at the time of the accruing of the cause of action, co-partners in any such firm, to be furnished in such manner, and verified on oath or otherwise, as the Judge may direct.

(2) When a writ is sued out by partners in the name of their firm, the plaintiffs or their solicitors shall, on demand in writing by or on behalf of any defendant, forthwith declare in writing the names and places of residence of all the persons constituting the firm on whose behalf the suit is brought. And if the plaintiffs or their solicitors shall fail to comply with such demand, all proceedings in the suit may, upon an application for that purpose, be stayed upon such terms as the Court or a Judge may direct. And when the names of the partners are so declared, the suit shall proceed in the same manner and the same consequences in all respects shall follow as if they had been named as the plaintiffs in the writ. But all the proceedings shall, never- theless, continue in the name of the firm.

(3) Where persons are sued as partners in the name of their firm under sub-section (1), the writ shall be served either upon any one or more of the partners or at the prin- cipal place, within the jurisdiction, of the business of the partnership upon any person having at the time of service the control or management of the partnership business there; and, subject to this section, such service shall be deemed good service upon the firm so sued, whether any of the members thereof are out of the jurisdiction or not, pro- vided that in the case of a co-partnership which has been dissolved to the knowledge of the plaintiff before the com- mencement of the suit, the writ of summons shall be served upon every person within the jurisdiction sought to be made liable.

(4) Where a writ is issued against a firm, and is served as directed by sub-section (3), every person upon whom it is served may be informed by notice in writing given at the time of such service whether he is served as a partner or as a person having the control or management of the part- nership business, or in both characters. In default of such notice, the person served shall be deemed to be served as a partner.

(5) Where persons are sued as partners in the name of their firm, they shall appear individually in their own names; but all subsequent proceedings shall, nevertheless, continue in the name of the firm.

(6) Where a writ is served under sub-section (3) upon a person having the control or management of the partner- ship business, no appearance by him shall be necessary unless he is a member of the firm sued.

(7) Any person served as a partner under sub-section (3) may enter an appearance under protest, denying that he is a partner, but such appearance shall not preclude the plaintiff from otherwise serving the firm and obtaining judg- ment against the firm in default of appearance if no partner has entered an appearance in the ordinary form.

(8) Where a judgment or order is against a firm, execu- tion may issue-

(a) Against any property of the partnership withiu

the jurisdiction;

(b) Against any person who has appeared in his own name under sub-section (5) or (6), or who has admitted on the pleadings that he is, or who has been adjudged to be a partner;

(c) Against any person who has been individually served, as a partner, with the writ of summons, and has failed to appear.

If the party who has obtained judgment or an order claims to be entitled to issue execution against any other person as being a member of the firm, he may apply to the Court or a Judge for leave so to do; and the Court or Judge may give such leave if the liability be not disputed, or if such liability be disputed may order that the liability of such person be tried and determined in any manner in which any issue or question in a suit may be tried and determined. But except as against any property of the partnership, a judg- ment against a firm shall not render liable, release, or other- wise affect any member thereof who was residing out of the jurisdiction when the writ was issued, and who has not been served with or appeared to the writ.

(9) Debts owing from a firm carrying on business within the jurisdiction may be attached under section 76 of the Code of Civil Procedure, although one or more members of such firm may be resident abroad; provided that any person having the control or management of the partnership business or any member of the firm within the jurisdiction is served with a prohibitory order. An appearance by any member pursuant to an order shall be a sufficient appearance by the firm.

(10) The provisions of this Section shall apply to suits between a firm and one or more of its members, and to suits between firms having one or more members in common, provided such firm or firms carry on business within the jurisdiction, but no execution shall be issued in such suits without leave of the Court or a Judge, and on an application for leave to issue such execution all such accounts and inquiries may be directed to be taken and made, and directions given, as may be just.

(11) Any person carrying on business within the juris- diction in a name or style other than his own name may be sued in such name or style as if it were a firm name; and, so far as the nature of the case will permit, all the provi- sions of the said Code and of this Section relating to proceedings against firms shall apply.

3. This Ordinance shall apply to all suits in the Supreme Court commenced on or after the 1893.

Objects and Reasons.

Proceedings by and against partnership firms have, in this Colony, since 1873, been regulated by Section 14 of the Hongkong Code of Civil Procedure.

That law has not worked quite satisfactorily. In England a new set of Rules dealing fully with this subject came into operation on 1st July, 1891.

The embodiment of those Rules in the Hongkong Code, in lieu of Section 14, seems a desirable improvement in our law and this Bill, which has been submitted to the Judges of the Supreme Court and approved by them, effects that object. This amendment of the Code should amongst other thing's facilitate the collection of debts from Chinese firms trading, as they often do, under styles which do not reveal the names of the partners.

The following Memorial respecting Gaol Extension, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 25th instant, is published.

SIR,

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 26th January, 1893.

G. T. M. O'BRIEN, Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG, 6th January, 1893.

We beg most respectfully to thank you for having given us an opportunity to express our views on the question of the Gaol extension-an opportunity which we gladly avail ourselves of inasmuch as we and the overwhelming majority of the other members of the Chinese community are strongly opposed to the Gaol being extended in any way for the following reasons:-

J. Because the accommodation provided by the existing buildings is ample, so much so that the prisoners have more space allowed them than they have ever had when not in prison. In a word, they are far better off in gaol than out of it.

2. Because the Gaol is already looked upon as a paradise by many a rascal, and situated as we are within a stone's throw of the Chinese territory, any extension of the Gaol will certainly lead to an influx of bad characters from China.

3. Because we differ from the view of those who allege that the separate system will act as a deterrent to Chinese prisoners. We have no hesitation in saying that such an opinion must be formed through ignorance of the habits of the Chinese criminals who will be in no way deterred by having to live in separate cells.

4. Because the gaols in China, to which the Chinese criminals who come to Hongkong have always been accustomed, cannot be in any way compared with the Gaol in Hongkong. They are so arranged that bad characters are afraid of committing crimes in case they may be lodged in them. The present Victoria Gaol does not inspire much fear, and it would inspire still less if made more comfortable which would most certainly lead to an increase of crime, as criminals will have no dread of entering it.

5. Because we are of the opinion that the most efficacious way to prevent persons from committing crimes in the Colony is not to enlarge the Gaol but to use more freely the power of banishment and the rattan, and to make the prisoners' life not so much a life of ease as it is at present.

In conclusion, we beg to point out that being Chinese ourselves, it is not likely that we would discourage the Government from doing anything for the real benefit of our own countrymen, which would be of advantage to the Chinese community generally. But, in the present instance, being convinced that the extension of the Gaol would bring harm to the community, and would lead to a large influx of criminals into the Colony, and a great increase in crime, we feel compelled to sincerely state our views, which we trust His Excellency the Governor may be pleased to consider favourably.

We have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servants,

 The following Correspondence respecting the proposed Loan, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 25th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 26th January, 1893.

G. T. M. O'Brien, Colonial Secretary.

To the Secretary of State for the Colonies, No. 39 of 2nd February, 1892.

MY LORD,

I have the honour to transmit for Your Lordship's consideration copy of the* speech I addressed to the Legislative Council on its re-assembling on the. 25th ultimo.

From this document Your Lordship will observe that I do not concur in the opinion expressed by Major-General BARKER that the necessity for raising a loan has not yet arisen. When the Committee referred to in my speech has reported, I will address Your Lordship again on the subject.

I have, &c.,

WILLIAM ROBINSON.

To the Secretary of State for the Colonies, No. 140 of 19th April, 1892.

MY LORD,

With reference to my despatch, No. 39 of the 2nd of February last, I have the honour to transmit for Your Lordship's information copies of the report* of the Committee of the Legislative Council which I appointed to consider the advisability of raising a public loan.

Although I do not agree with the conclusion arrived at by the Committee, yet in view of the financial authority of most of its members, I decided not to press the matter further immediately. I am nevertheless quite satisfied that the raising of a loan cannot be deferred longer than a few months, and that it will be found more advantageous to raise the loan in gold in London than locally in silver; and I have therefore to suggest, with a view to avoiding delay whenever it may be decided to raise the loan, that the Crown Agents be now desired to state all the particulars which are not already in their possession and which they will require to enable them to draw up the prospectus of the loan.

I have, &c.,

WILLIAM ROBINSON.

To the Governor of Hongkong, No. 200 of 29th July, 1892.

No. 39 of 2nd February. No. 140 of 19th April.

SIR,

I have had under my consideration your despatches noted in the margin, and have decided to sanction the raising of a loan by the Hongkong Government of an amount not exceeding two hundred thousand pounds for the purpose of con- structing those of the proposed public works which it is most urgently necessary to proceed with.

* Already presented to the Council.

2. The works which may be charged wholly or partially to the loan are the completion of the Central Market, the Praya Reclamation, and the Water and Sewage undertakings which have already been begun or are in contemplation, and also the improvements of the Gaol accommodation which are under consideration.

3. It will be desirable that the money should be raised by Inscribed Stock, and not by Debentures as was the case with the last loan. I enclose drafts of the following documents which the Crown Agents have prepared at my request with a view to raising a loan in that manner and converting the existing Debenture issue, viz. :-

(1) General loan and Inscribed Stock Ordinance;

(2) Order in Council authorising the Crown Agents to make the decla- ration identifying the Stock under the provisions of the Colonial Stock Act 1877;

(3) Declaration by the Governor under the provisions of the General Loan and Inscribed Stock Act as to conversion of existing loans; (4) Request to Crown Agents to act as Agents for management of

Inscribed Stock and Conversions;

(5) Ordinance authorising an issue under the General Loan and Inscribed Stock Ordinance, where the contribution to the sinking fund is to commence from the date of issue of the stock; and (6) Ordinance authorising an issue under the General Loan and Inscribed Stock Ordinance, where the date of commencement of contributions to the sinking fund is deferred.

4. It is important to adhere closely to the wording of the enclosed drafts, more especially as regards Nos. (2), (3) and (4). As the public works to be con- structed under the loan now authorised will not be immediately remunerative, it may

be well to use the form of Ordinance which defers the contribution to the sinking fund, and to allow such contributions to commence (say) three years after the date on which the interest begins to accrue. The Ordinance should state that the loan is "for the purpose of constructing the public works set forth in the schedule to this Ordinance," and the works specified in paragraph 2 of the present despatch or such of them as you decide to charge to the loan should be mentioned in the said schedule.

5. With reference to the last paragraph of your despatch No. 140 of 19th April last, I have to request you to furnish the Crown Agents with the following particulars, viz.: the statistics of revenue and expenditure and the amount of the shipping at Hongkong for the last ten years, and for the first half of the current year, and the present amount of the public debt.

6. I should have wished that the issue could have been deferred, but as the balances are already exhausted, and as the existing commercial depression would preclude the realization of assets by the sale of land, any further postponement of this step may be undesirable.

7. In any case I should not be prepared to approve the suggestion made by the Committee that further advances should be obtained from the local banks. The disadvantages of that method of raising money, and the comparative advantage (on the whole) of borrowing in this country in gold when borrowing becomes necessary, were pointed out in the Secretary of State's despatches No. 5 of the 30th June, 1885, and No. 21 of the 2nd February, 1886.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 28TH JANUARY, 1893.

EDUCATION DEPARTMENT, HONGKONG, 20th January, 1893.

 SIR, I have the honour to submit the Annual Report of the Government Central School for Girls for the year 1892.

 2. I entirely concur with the observations of the Headmistress, Mrs. BATEMAN, to whose patient industry and wise discretion the success so far obtained is largely due. The Annual Examination has shewn satisfactory results as stated in the enclosed report. Good progress has been made in both the English and Chinese classes, and the moral tone of the whole School has been considerably raised.

 3. The School is in urgent need of enlarged accommodation and a corresponding increase in the staff, but, I am afraid, both these wants will have to remain unsatisfied until the close of the present year when the building, now in course of construction at the expense of the Honourable E. R. BELILIOS, will become available.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable G. T. M. O'BRIEN, C.M.G., Colonial Secretary, &c., &c.

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

GOVERNMENT CENTRAL SCHOol for Girls, HONGKONG, 20th January, 1893.

 SIR,-I have the honour to forward the Third Annual Report of the Government Central School for Girls.

 At the close of the year 1892, there were 93 children in regular attendance. The present building is too small to accommodate more children without positive over-crowding. Teachers and scholars alike are therefore eagerly anticipating the comfort and advantages they will derive in the near future from the commodious and handsome new building now so rapidly nearing completion.

 As many as 139 children have been entered on the Register during the year and attended for some time. Some, however, remained in the School but a short period. This is chiefly owing to the fluctuating character of that portion of the population of Hongkong for which this School is specially intended. The attendance of those whose parents' remain in the Colony has been most regular, and their diligence very satisfactory. The School is periodically visited and annually examined by the Inspector of Schools, and the results of the examination have been pronounced satisfactory, particularly in English Grammar, Composition, Arithmetic and History. The Chinese classes, attendance at which is optional, have been appreciated by the parents, but it is difficult to find suitable teachers for girls. The needlework classes, for both English and Chinese work, have been well attended and special tuition has been secured for Chinese embroidery for which there is great demand.

 It is evident that the School has made some progress in its several divisions, and particularly in the infant department. Judging from the fact that all classes of the community are now represented among the scholars and that the attendance is on a level with the capabilities of our accommodation and staff, I am satisfied that the School is popularly appreciated as answering a public want. Nevertheless I feel that the development of the School has been somewhat interfered with by various difficulties it encountered during the year. There have been several changes in the teaching staff. In April Mrs. LEONG, Assistant Mistress of the Lower School and MILLY LEONG pupil teacher of the same, resigned their positions. These vacancies were most ably filled by Mrs. DAVIS and LIZZIE TURNER respectively. In December, greatly to my regret, Mrs. DAVIS also resigned in order to accept an appointment in Singapore which had been offered to her and which, she felt, gave her a wider sphere of usefulness. Mrs. TUTCHER, a Certificated Infant Mistress, has been appointed to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Mrs. DAVIS. Similar changes have occurred also in the Chinese department of the School. The progress and expansion of the Institution has naturally been impeded by these fluctuations in the Staff and in the attendance of the School.

I have the honour to be, Sir;

The Honourable G. T. M. O'BRIEN, C.M.G.,

‧ Colonial Secretary, &c., &c.

Your most obedient Servant,

E. A. BATEMAN,

Headmistress.

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.

The mean temperature was below the average from the 14th to the 24th. The coldest day (air 35°.2, damp bulb 32°.8) was the 16th. The lowest mean temperature of the damp-bulb thermometer occurred on the 17th (air 36°.2, damp bulb 30°.9). Circumstances were anti-cyclonic with probably abnormally slight decrease of temperature with height. Snow-storms were reported from China to the north and east of the Colony. From Macao snow was reported, but that appears to have really con- sisted of small-sized hail, which fell for 4 hours. Neither snow nor hail were seen in Hongkong, but the tops of the hills appeared to be covered by snow or hoar-frost. Water exposed in buckets or in pools was several mornings found covered with ice about 4 inch thick, and a few hundred feet above sea-level both the grass and branches of trees, being cooled below the temperature of the air (which did not fall below freezing point) owing to evaporation and radiation, were encased in unusually clear and transparent ice without any appearance of crystallisation. As far south as the Straits Settlements the cold was felt but in a less degree. The temperature appears not to have fallen below 70° in Singapore. At sea strong N breezes were observed during the greatest cold. The Colony was sheltered by the mainland and only light N breezes were registered till the 20th, when the wind backed to W. It veered to E on the 21st. During the coldest days the pressure was from one to two tenths of an inch of mercury above the mean. The sky was overcast but cleared on the evening of the 17th. Owing to radiation the extreme temperatures occurred after this epoch: the lowest air-temperature 32°.0 about 7 a. on the 18th, and the lowest damp-bulb temperature 27°.7 about 2.30 a. on the same day.

No. 24.

G. T. M. O'BRIEN,

Colonial Secretary.

POLICE DEPARTMENT,

CAPTAIN SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 19th January, 1893.

 SIR, I have the honour to submit, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the Police Report for the year 1892.

 2. The total number of cases brought to the notice of the Police during the year was 9,730 against 10,869 in 1891, being a decrease of 1,139 cases, or a decrease of 10.47 per cent.

Subdivided into serious and minor offences (so-called) there were in 1892, 2,983 cases of the former class against 2,994 in 1891, shewing a decrease of 11 cases or 0.36 per cent., and in the latter class 6,747 cases against 7,875 in 1891, giving a decrease of 1.128 cases or a decrease of 14.32 per cent. 3. During the year there were 3 cases of murder, the victims being a boatman named CHEUNG CHI, an Indian watchman named RAMSAMMY, and a man named CHUNG Ho. In connection with the second case two Indians were committed for trial, and acquitted: in the other two cases the Police were unable to effect any arrests.

 4. There were two serious cases of manslaughter during the year. In connection with the first two coolies were arrested, but there was not sufficient evidence to obtain a conviction: in the second case the assailant made good his escape, before his arrest could be effected.

 5. Of the Highway Robberies the most flagrant case was that which occurred on the 11th July, when two men employed by the Dairy Farm Co. were waylaid and robbed by five men unknown on the Pokfulam Road. The Police had no means of tracing these men, and no arrests were made.

 6. The facilities for leaving the Colony and the proximity of the mainland of China added to the reluctance of respectable people to lay information against criminals or to come forward as witnesses against them render it very difficult for the Police to bring the guilty parties to justice. In many instances the offender has made good his escape, before the Police have received information of the offence, and on many occasions a case has broken down through the reluctance of witnesses to come forward and give evidence.

 7. Only three cases of Piracy have been reported during the year, all of which took place in Chinese waters. Several arrests were subsequently made by the Portuguese and Chinese Authorities in connection with these piracies.

 Every precaution has been taken against a repetition of the Namoa calamity, and steamers carrying Chinese passengers have been regularly searched before leaving the port.

 8. All the Police Stations are in good repair. The new station at Kennedy Town was occupied by the Police on the 31st December.

 9. The health of the Police Force has been good, only 7 deaths occurring, including one European. There has been a marked decrease in the number of casualties, there being only 87 as against 142 in 1891.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

A. GORDON,

Captain Supt. of Police.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION. -No. 45.

 The following Report of the Captain Superintendent of Police for 1892, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 8th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 9th February, 1893.

No. 24.

G. T. M. O'BRIEN,

Colonial Secretary.

POLICE DEPARTMENT,

CAPTAIN SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 19th January, 1893.

 SIR, I have the honour to submit, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the Police Report for the year 1892.

 2. The total number of cases brought to the notice of the Police during the year was 9,730 against 10,869 in 1891, being a decrease of 1,139 cases, or a decrease of 10.47 per cent.

Subdivided into serious and minor offences (so-called) there were in 1892, 2,983 cases of the former class against 2,994 in 1891, shewing a decrease of 11 cases or 0.36 per cent., and in the latter class 6,747 cases against 7,875 in 1891, giving a decrease of 1.128 cases or a decrease of 14.32 per cent. 3. During the year there were 3 cases of murder, the victims being a boatman named CHEUNG CHI, an Indian watchman named RAMSAMMY, and a man named CHUNG Ho. In connection with the second case two Indians were committed for trial, and acquitted: in the other two cases the Police were unable to effect any arrests.

 4. There were two serious cases of manslaughter during the year. In connection with the first two coolies were arrested, but there was not sufficient evidence to obtain a conviction: in the second case the assailant made good his escape, before his arrest could be effected.

 5. Of the Highway Robberies the most flagrant case was that which occurred on the 11th July, when two men employed by the Dairy Farm Co. were waylaid and robbed by five men unknown on the Pokfulam Road. The Police had no means of tracing these men, and no arrests were made.

 6. The facilities for leaving the Colony and the proximity of the mainland of China added to the reluctance of respectable people to lay information against criminals or to come forward as witnesses against them render it very difficult for the Police to bring the guilty parties to justice. In many instances the offender has made good his escape, before the Police have received information of the offence, and on many occasions a case has broken down through the reluctance of witnesses to come forward and give evidence.

 7. Only three cases of Piracy have been reported during the year, all of which took place in Chinese waters. Several arrests were subsequently made by the Portuguese and Chinese Authorities in connection with these piracies.

 Every precaution has been taken against a repetition of the Namoa calamity, and steamers carrying Chinese passengers have been regularly searched before leaving the port.

 8. All the Police Stations are in good repair. The new station at Kennedy Town was occupied by the Police on the 31st December.

 9. The health of the Police Force has been good, only 7 deaths occurring, including one European. There has been a marked decrease in the number of casualties, there being only 87 as against 142 in 1891.

SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE, VICTORIA GAOL,

HONGKONG, 18th January, 1893.

 SIR, I have the honour to forward, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the Annual Report on the Victoria Gaol for 1892.

 2. During the year there were 5,231 admissions, the average number of prisoners confined in the Gaol being 515 which is a slight increase on the previous year. The daily maximum number was

595.

 3. There have been 7,494 prison offences committed during the year being about 14 offences to each prisoner as compared with over 23 in 1891. The comparative returns attached show the number of the most common of these offences.

 4. Nine officers have been dismissed for misconduct during the year, but the conduct of the remainder of the Gaol Staff has been satisfactory.

 5. The officers' quarters are devoid of necessary comforts. There is no mess room or recreation room, and, under the existing circumstances, it is almost impossible for an officer employed on night duty to get proper rest during the day, he being constantly disturbed by those on day duty who are compelled to use the same room.

 6. The necessity for introducing the separate system generally has been frequently urged and I would most strongly recommend its adoption. At present from the time prisoners are locked up in the evening until they are unlocked in the morning and again during the officers' meal hours, it is impossible with a limited staff to exercise proper supervision in the corridors so as to prevent prisoners communicating with each other. It is unnecessary for me to mention the incalculable amount of har?n which this must do and how the deterrent effect of imprisonment is lessened thereby.

 7. Extra store-room and bath accommodation are required. The latter is so limited bathing cannot be conducted properly.

SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE, VICTORIA GAOL,

HONGKONG, 18th January, 1893.

 SIR, I have the honour to forward, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the Annual Report on the Victoria Gaol for 1892.

 2. During the year there were 5,231 admissions, the average number of prisoners confined in the Gaol being 515 which is a slight increase on the previous year. The daily maximum number was

595.

 3. There have been 7,494 prison offences committed during the year being about 14 offences to each prisoner as compared with over 23 in 1891. The comparative returns attached show the number of the most common of these offences.

 4. Nine officers have been dismissed for misconduct during the year, but the conduct of the remainder of the Gaol Staff has been satisfactory.

 5. The officers' quarters are devoid of necessary comforts. There is no mess room or recreation room, and, under the existing circumstances, it is almost impossible for an officer employed on night duty to get proper rest during the day, he being constantly disturbed by those on day duty who are compelled to use the same room.

 6. The necessity for introducing the separate system generally has been frequently urged and I would most strongly recommend its adoption. At present from the time prisoners are locked up in the evening until they are unlocked in the morning and again during the officers' meal hours, it is impossible with a limited staff to exercise proper supervision in the corridors so as to prevent prisoners communicating with each other. It is unnecessary for me to mention the incalculable amount of har?n which this must do and how the deterrent effect of imprisonment is lessened thereby.

 7. Extra store-room and bath accommodation are required. The latter is so limited bathing cannot be conducted properly.

89

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1893.

8. The insufficient yard accommodation has also been repeatedly pointed out.

                                       This I regard as one of the most serious deficiencies in the Gaol and makes it a matter of the utmost difficulty to keep the various classes of prisoners separate when at work. If this were increased many more prisoners could be employed at useful and remunerative labour.

9. The female prison is badly situated. The average number of females in prison during the year was 27, and, owing to the inadequate accommodation, it frequently happens that remand prisoners have to be placed in the same ward with convicted prisoners.

10. I forward herewith the usual returns.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

The Honourable

THE COLONIAL SECRETARY.

  The Public are hereby notified that if the present rate of water consumption is maintained it appears probable on account of the existing scarcity of water that it will be necessary to temporarily introduce the intermittent system of supply within the areas of the City of Victoria and Hill District.

  Attention is however called to the fact that the consumption of water within the above named areas is considered excessive and it is possible that the occupants of tenements may be able to so reduce it within their respective premises as to avert the necessity of altogether shutting the water off for a portion of each day and night.

   On the above table we may remark that candidates 1, 3 and 4 satisfied the condition of obtaining at least 400 marks in the English subjects; the same candidates and also No. 2 satisfied the condition of obtaining at least 300 marks in the other subjects. We desire to commend in general the papers of the three candidates YVANOVICH, COCK, and PESTONJEE, who have qualified themselves for election in both parts of the examination, and also of LEUNG KWONG-HIN. The competition for the scholarship between YVANOVICH and COCK was very close. We beg leave to recommend YVANOVICH to the Colonial Government for election to the scholarship, as has already been announced to the Colonial Secretary by telegraph.

English Subjects.-In Grammar the answers to the whole paper were in general excellent. The Essays of the three most successful candidates were in varying degrees meritorious in expression, style, and thought. In History the questions which elicited the best answers were those on the period from the Norman Conquest to the Tudors, and in the special period (the reign of Victoria) those on our Colonial Empire and foreign policy. In the History of Literature the work on the earlier literature was superior to that on the later. The selected play of Shakespeare had been care- fully studied.

   Other Subjects.-In Geography the best answers were on the United Kingdom and Asia. The best two papers deserve commendation. In most of the papers however traces of the study of Trendell's Colonial Year-Book were not very prominent. The mathematical work of all the candidates was good and in two cases extremely good. All did well in Algebra and Euclid, the work being intelligent and careful. In the arithmetical subjects there was some lack of accuracy in the work of three candidates. Taken as a whole the results of the second part of the examination are extremely satisfactory.

We have the honour to remain,

Sir,

Your obedient Servants,

31st December, 1892.

HEREAS it is expedient to amend the Hongkong Code of Civil Procedure so far as relates to suits by and against persons carrying on business in names other than their own.

Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. Section XIV. of the Hongkong Code of Civil Pro- cedure is hereby repealed but such repeal shall not affect anything done or suffered thereunder, nor any suit or pro- ceeding to which this Ordinance does not apply.

Preamble. (No. 13 of 1873.)

Repeal of

Section XIV. of Ordinance No. 13 of 1873.

under protest of person served as partner.

Execution of judgment against a firm.

2. In lieu of the section hereby repealed the following section shall be read and substituted, viz. :-

Proceedings by or against Firms.

XIV. (1) Any two or more persons claiming or being liable as co-partners and carrying on business within the jurisdiction may sue or be sued in the name of the respective firms, if any, of which such persons were co-partners at the time of the accruing of the cause of action; and any party to a suit may in such case apply by summons to a judge for a statement of the names and addresses of the persons who were, at the time of the accruing of the cause of action, co-partners in any such firm, to be furnished in such manner, and verified on oath or otherwise, as the Judge may direct.

(2) When a writ is sued out by partners in the name of their firm, the plaintiffs or their solicitors shall, on demand in writing by or on behalf of any defendant, forthwith declare in writing the names and places of residence of all the persons constituting the firm on whose behalf the suit is brought. And if the plaintiffs or their solicitors shall fail to comply with such demand, all proceedings in the suit may, upon an application for that purpose, be stayed upon such terms as the Court or a Judge may direct. And when the names of the partners are so declared, the suit shall proceed in the same manner and the same consequences in all respects shall follow as if they had been named as the plaintiffs in the writ. But all the proceedings shall, never- theless, continue in the name of the firm.

(3) Where persons are sued as partners in the name of their firm under sub-section (1), the writ shall be served either upon any one or more of the partners or at the prin- cipal place, within the jurisdiction, of the business of the partnership upon any person having at the time of service the control or management of the partnership business there; and, subject to this section, such service shall be deemed good service upon the firm so sued, whether

        any of the members thereof are out of the jurisdiction or not, pro- vided that in the case of a co-partnership which has been dissolved to the knowledge of the plaintiff before the com- mencement of the suit, the writ of summons shall be served upon every person within the jurisdiction sought to be

made liable.

(4) Where a writ is issued against a firm, and is served as directed by sub-section (3), every person upon whom it is served may be informed by notice in writing given at the time of such service whether he is served as a partner or as a person having the control or management of the part- nership business, or in both characters. In default of such notice, the person served shall be deemed to be served as a partner.

(5) Where persons are sued as partners in the name of their firm, they shall appear individually in their own names; but all subsequent proceedings shall, nevertheless, continue in the name of the firm.

(6) Where a writ is served under sub-section (3) upon a person having the control or management of the partner- ship business, no appearance by him shall be necessary unless he is a member of the firm sued.

(7) Any person served as a partner under sub-section (3) may enter an appearance under protest, denying that he is a partner, but such appearance shall not preclude the plaintiff from otherwise serving the firm and obtaining judg ment against the firm in default of appearance if no partner has entered an appearance in the ordinary form.

(8) Where a judgment or order is against a firm, execu- tion may issue-

(a) Against any property of the partnership within

the jurisdiction;

(b) Against any person who has appeared in his own name under sub-section (5) or (6), or who has admitted on the pleadings that he is, or who has been adjudged to be a partner;

(c) Against any person who has been individually served, as a partner, with the writ of summons, and has failed to appear.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH FEBRUARY, 1893. 123

If the party who has obtained judgment or an order claims to be entitled to issue execution against any other person as being a member of the firm, he may apply to the Court or a Judge for leave so to do; and the Court or Judge may give such leave if the liability be not disputed, or if such liability be disputed may order that the liability of such person be tried and determined in any manner in which any issue or question in a suit may be tried and determined. But except as against any property of the partnership, a judg- ment against a firm shall not render liable, release, or other- wise affect any member thereof who was residing out of the jurisdiction when the writ was issued, and who has not been served with or appeared to the writ.

(9) Debts owing from a firm carrying on business within the jurisdiction may be attached under section 76 of the Code of Civil Procedure, although one or more members of such firm may be resident abroad; provided that any person having the control or management of the partnership business or any member of the firm within the jurisdiction is served with a prohibitory order. An appearance by any member pursuant to an order shall be a sufficient appearance by the firm.

(10) The provisions of this Section shall apply to suits between a firm and one or more of its members, and to suits between firms having one or more members in common, provided such firm or firms carry on business within the jurisdiction, but no execution shall be issued in such suits without leave of the Court or a Judge, and on an application for leave to issue such execution all such accounts and inquiries may be directed to be taken and made, and directions given, as may be just.

(11) Any person carrying on business within the juris- diction in a name or style other than his own name may be sued in such name or style as if it were a firm name; and, so far as the nature of the case will permit, all the provi- sions of the said Code and of this Section relating to proceedings against firms shall apply.

3. This Ordinance shall apply to all suits in the Supreme Court commenced on or after the 1st day of March, 1893.

Attachment of debts owing from a firm.

Application of this section to suits bet- ween co-part-

ners.

Application of this section to person trading as a firm.

Application of this Ordt- nance.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 67.

 The following abstract of a Chinese Proclamation, prohibiting the entrance of foreigners into Chinese Territory in the neighbourhood of Macao for purposes of shooting, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 20th February, 1893.

G. T. M. O'BRIEN, Colonial Secretary.

Abstract of proclamation issued by Ai, Maritime sub-prefect, stating that the Governor-General of the two Kwang has forbidden foreigners from entering Chinese territory on shooting excursions and thereby creating disturbances.

In consequence of foreigners from Macao acting in contravention of treaties, and entering with arms into Chinese territory on shooting parties, I and Captain LAI addressed a joint communication to the Portuguese LI Sz () of Macao. We explained that the elders of the villages were afraid of the consequences which might result from some one being accidentally wounded by a foreigner: a disturbance having actually arisen in this way some years ago. We added that on the 30th October a Chinese narrowly escaped being wounded by a foreigner who was on a shooting excursion, but fortunately some soldiers who were near intervened and quelled the disturbance which arose, before anything serious occurred. We pointed out that Chinese of all classes obeyed the regu- lations in force in Macao against carrying arms, and that it would be only just and would prevent justifiable complaints if foreigners were prohibited from breaking the laws in force in China against shooting in places where it was forbidden. We concluded by requesting him to issue a proclamation forbidding shooting excursions into Chinese territory. We also wrote to the Commissioner of Customs and caused two notices to be posted.

 I further submitted, as follows, to the Governor-General of the Two Kwang the advisability of requesting the Governor of Macao to forbid shooting parties.

 The part of the province under my jurisdiction, I said, is almost all cultivated ground, and thickly inhabited. It lies close to Macao, and foreigners come from there to shoot. Accidents have frequently occurred, and though the complaints arising from them have been successfully dealt with by the officials concerned, proclamations prohibiting the practice of shooting in these parts have not been attended to, and it has become more frequent these last two years. The trouble will never cease unless you intervene. I have had frequent complaints made to me personally, and a disturbance arising out of the presence of a shooting party on the 30th October was only just averted. I have satisfied myself that the reports of the occurrence are true, and similar events have been frequent for many years.

 The Governor-General replied to this that he had requested the Governor of Macao to put a stop to the practice of shooting in Chinese territory, and instructed me to proclaim without delay that no molestation was to be offered to foreigners taking a walk in Chinese territory, and that a report must be made of any intentional injury received at their hands, but no retaliation made.

 I now issue a proclamation and call on you to see that no member of your families invent stories with the intention of persuading foreigners to come and shoot in these parts, trusting to the foreigner for support. You must report any one who does so and I will punish him severely. You must receive all foreigners who enter Chinese territory for a walk as distinguished guests, and even if you have any feeling of resentment you must not allow the least particle of it to be seen, or it will be the worse for you.

 If any foreigners disregard the provisions of the treaties and insist on making shooting excursions into our territory and refuse to listen to you when you wish to prevent them, you may take their knives and guns from them and bring the arms to my Office, and I will request the Governor-General to ask that they be punished. But I wish to warn you especially that you must on no account assault them. If you do, they will have cause for complaint. It is my wish that both parties should be on good terms, but I cannot consent that my people should suffer injury.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of practical use, and while alphabetically arranged

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.

   QUESTIONS.-Honourable C. P. CHATER gave notice that at the next meeting he would ask the following questions:-

1. What is the total amount so far as has been ascertained to date of the loss occasioned to the

Treasury through the defalcations of A. F. Alves, late Clerk and Accountant therein?

2. Over what period of time have these defalcations extended so far as is at present known? 3. Was the defaulter guaranteed in any way, and if so how, by whom, and to what amount? 4. When were the defalcations first discovered and when were any steps taken for the arrest of

the defaulter? Is it a fact as stated in the newspapers that Alves was allowed time during which he was able to make away with the books and accounts incriminating him and to escape from the Colony?

   Honourable T. H. WHITEHEAD also gave notice that at the next meeting he would ask the follow- ing question:-

Will the Government appoint a commission composed in the main of persons unconnected with the Government Service to investigate and report publicly on the management of the Treasury Department and on the circumstances connected with A. F. Alves' defalcations?

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH MARCH, 1893.

Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:

1. This Ordinance may be cited for all purposes as The Praya Wharves and Piers Ordinance 1893.

2. Immediately after the coming into operation of this Ordinance, the Director of Public Works of this Colony together with WILLIAM DANBY, Esquire, J.P. of Hong- kong, Civil Engineer, hereinafter called the Valuers, shall estimate the probable cost of the removal and re-erection in like situations, abutting on the new Praya, of the aforesaid five Government Public Piers and Wharves and of the whole of the private Piers and Wharves along the line of the said Reclamation, existing at the date of the passing of The Praya Reclamation Ordinance, aud when the Valuers have agreed as to the amount of such estimate or in case of difference, when the Umpire, hereinafter mentioned, shall have decided the sum to be inserted they shall duly cause to be prepared a Schedule in which shall be entered.

(a) The names of the said five Government Public Piers and Wharves, viz.:-Murray Pier, Ped- dar's Wharf, Pottinger Street Pier, Harbour Master's Pier, and the Nam Pak Houg Pier, and the total estimated cost of removing and re-erecting the same in like situations abutting on the new Praya. In estimating such total cost, due deductions shall be made for structural depreciation at the time of the passing of The The Praya Reclamation Ordinance 1889. amount thus estimated may be referred to as "The Public proportion of compensation." (b) The names or descriptious of each of the said private Wharves and Piers along the line of the said reclamation and the amount allotted as part compensation in respect of each of the said private Wharves and Piers. In estimating such amounts, due deductions shall be made for structural depreciation at the time of the passing of The Praya Reclamation Ordinance 1889, and due regard shall be had to the sum available for payment of such amounts after the Public proportion of compensation and the fees payable under Section 5 have been deducted from the sum of $180,000.

3. Should the said Valuers fail to agree in respect of any or all of the amounts to be entered in the aforesaid schedule they shall refer the matters in which they shall so fail to agree to

    hereinafter called the 'Umpire,' who shall duly consider the respective views of the aforesaid Valuers and such facts or statements as they shall lay before him and decide the sum to be inserted in the said Schedule.

4. Such Schedule shall be in the form in Schedule A to this Ordinance. The Schedule when completed shall be signed by the said Valuers and also by the Umpire, if any amount contained therein has been decided by him, and shall be duly published in the Government Gazette, after which it shall be final and binding on all parties in respect of the amounts to be paid on account of each wharf and pier named therein.

5. The Governor is hereby empowered to direct payment to be made, out of the sum not exceeding $180,000, of such fees as he may consider fair and reasonable on account of the services rendered under this Ordinance by the said and the said WILLIAM

DANBY, Esquire.

,

6. The respective sums published in the aforesaid schedule shall be paid as hereinafter provided in Section 7 to the respective owners of each of the said Wharves or Piers on behalf of themselves and any occupiers entitled to par- ticipate in such compensation, unless before such payment notice in writing shall be given to the Colonial Secretary by the occupier or occupiers of any particular Wharf or Pier that he or they object to such payment being made in that particular instance to the owner, in which case as also in any case where the owner or occupier cannot be readily ascertained or where any other difficulty may arise the sum mentioned in the Schedule in respect of such Wharf or Pier may be paid into the Supreme Court on behalf of the persons entitled thereto, and any owner or occupier or person claiming to be entitled to the sum or any part thereof may apply to the said Court for payment out accordingly.

..

  2. Referring first to Table A. It will be seen that of the one hundred and ninety eight (198) houses incomplete at the close of 1891, eighty (80) have been finished and the plans for seventy- four (74) cancelled, leaving forty-four (44) to carry forward to 1893.

3. Of the six hundred and ninety-three (693) houses, plans for the re-drainage of which were received and duly passed in 1892, four hundred and ninety-seven (497) are finished, and the plans of thirty-two (32) have been cancelled leaving one hundred and sixty-four (164) to carry forward, which with the forty-four (44) of 1891 makes a total of two hundred and eight (208).

4. The drainage plans of a large number of houses have been cancelled during the past year; these have in almost every instance been those of new buildings and more than two-thirds (3) were deposited during or previous to the year 1891. They have been cancelled in consequence of fresh plans being deposited chiefly owing to alterations in the building plans.

5. Table B gives a summary of the work which has been carried out under the superintendence of the Sanitary Surveyor since the passing of the Public Health Ordinance. The year 1892 which has just passed, compares favourably with previous years, the record of drainage plans of houses received and the number of houses re-drained being much the same. The decrease during the year in the number of houses certified under Section 74 of the Public Health Ordinance, which appears in the last column, seems to point to a return to a normal state after the exceptional activity in building operations obtaining during the years 1890 and 1891.

6. The total number of houses in Hongkong and Kowloon (including the villages and Hill District) is approximately eleven thousand, six hundred and fifty (11,650). Two thousand three hundred and twenty-two (2,322) have been drained in accordance with the Bye-laws, and one thousand two hundred and eighty-seven (1,287) are certificated, the former being 20 % of the total number and the latter 11 %.

7. Special attention has been paid to the condition of the down-pipes and cook-house floors. In the old houses the former are almost invariably constructed with the common Chinese clay-pipes, without any sockets; no jointing material has been used in fixing them and they are merely plastered over, the walls to which they are fixed being generally saturated in consequence of such defects; added to this they are frequently broken off to a height of 2 or 3 feet from the ground. It is by no means an uncommon occurrence to find the pipes completely choked by the dirt, vegetable refuse, &c., which has been forced into them.

8. In all cases of re-drainage care has been taken that these down-pipes should be renewed, with heads fixed at all inlets, gratings being fixed inside the cook-houses to prevent the new pipes being choked by refuse which they are not intended to take.

9. The cook-house floors have also received my careful attention. Where they are paved the paving usually consists of red tiles or flags carelessly laid and imperfectly jointed, but many instances have come under my notice where nothing but the rough earth forms the floor.

10. The red tiles are in my opinion too soft for the purpose; they wear in the centre of each tile, forming small basins which hold the water thrown on to the floor. Owing too to their soft nature the tiles become much broken by the chopping of wood which is usually performed in the cook-house. I believe that where these tiles are used the life of the floor might be considerably lengthened by providing a piece of stone in some corner of the cook-house where the tenant could chop his wood. Hard stone seems to me the only material which will effectually resist constant wear of this nature.

;

   11. During the past year permission has been granted to connect the water-closets at the Mount Austin Hotel, Hongkong Hotel (New Wing) and French Sanitarium at Pokfulam to the house-drains these connections are now completed. In consequence of these applications and of the progress made in the main sewerage of the city, bye-laws were drawn up under Section 3 of Ordinance 12 of 1891 to regulate the construction materials and fittings of water-closets and these bye-laws were approved by the Legislative Council on November 30th. I would venture to hope that owners and occupiers of property will see the advantages and appreciate the improved state of domestic sanitation to be obtained by the more general introduction of the water-carriage system in place of the existing pail system, and that in the course of the next few years the latter will have entirely disappeared, at least in all European houses.

12. The records which were started in 1888 have been maintained and are complete to date.

I have the honour to be,

The Secretary

 The Brigade was called out for the extinction of fires on sixteen occasions. This number though not excessive was double that of the year before. None of the fires attained very serious proportions, though in one instance property to the extent of about forty thousand dollars was destroyed.

 In addition to the fires requiring the attendance of the Brigade, there were eighty-three alarms, the fires in such cases being either non-existent or extinguished before headway was made.

 Ten of the sixteen fires were made the subject of Magisterial enquiries. I am of opinion that these enquiries continue to have a wholesome deterrent effect and check the great temptation to arson held out by the insuring facilities of the Colony.

 Advantage has been taken of the supply of water afforded by the street hydrants to gradually introduce a change into the tactics of the Brigade as regards the general arrangements for the suppres- sion of fires, and to place reliance upon the street hydrants rather than upon the steam fire engines.

 The appliance at present in use for this purpose is known as the Fire Despatch Box, its merits consisting in its handiness which enables it to be worked by one man at the same time that it is supplied with three hundred feet of hose and all the appliances necessary for immediate use of the street hydrants.

 They have during the year been gradually increased in number without extraordinary expenditure, and now number fourteen. They are situated in the following places :-

No. 1 Police Station.

Engine-house in Wanchai Road.

Royal Naval Yard.

Clock Tower.

Central Police Station.

No. 9 Police Station.

Engine-house in Hollywood Road.

Man Mo Temple.

Government Civil Hospital.

No. 7 Police Station,

Nam Pak Hong Engine-house in Bonham Strand.

The Gas Works Premises.

Central Fire Brigade Station.

Their number is being further added to as opportunity offers.

#

For fire purposes the Town is divided into three districts: Western, Central and Eastern; the Western extending eastwards as far as the Harbour Office, the Central extending eastwards as far as the City Hall, and the remainder of the Town forming the Eastern District.

The particular district in which a fire has broken out is notified to the Brigade by the Fire bells three strokes signifying the Western District, two strokes the Central District, and one the Eastern District.

In order to obviate the possible danger that might arise from denuding the Central District of its firemen and fire appliances, upon the occasion of a fire in the Eastern District, special arrangements are made for fires in the latter district according to which a certain number of men are told off each month for the purpose of attending at fires at Wanchai, the remainder being kept in the Central District unless the exceptional magnitude of the fire requires their attendance.

Although it is a long time since a fire of extraordinary magnitude took place I do not disguise from myself the possibility of its occurrence and circumstances might arise which would extend the area of the flames beyond the control of the limited number of men that belong to the Brigade. Promptitude in attendance and care in having in readiness the necessary arrangements for extending the operations are the best preventives against the spread of a fire.

The Assistant Superintendentship of the Fire Brigade has, during the past year, been mainly filled by Mr. Chief Inspector MATHIESON who has proved himself a valuable acquisition to the Brigade.

   The thanks of the Brigade are also due to Mr. KINGHORN, the Engineer, under whose supervision the engines are kept in excellent order, and to Mr. CAMPBELL, Assistant Engineer, who has the important work of generally superintending the up-keep of the gear and of attending to the proper carrying out of the orders in force for the general arrangements that have been made for the guidance of the Brigade.

   The clerical work of the Department, which requires considerable care and attention, has been admirably performed by Mr. CHAU SHAU, than whom it would be impossible to find a more painstaking and trustworthy officer.

The conduct of the Brigade throughout the year has been satisfactory.

   I have the honour to enclose Mr. KINGHORN's report on the state of the Engines together with the Return of Fires and Alarms.

The Honourable G. T. M. O'BRIEN, C.M.G.,

Colonial Secretary.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

H. E. WODEHOUSE, Superintendent, Fire Brigade.

VICTORIA COLLEGE, HONGKONG, 8th February, 1893.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward the Annual Report on Victoria College for the year 1892.

1. The total number on the College Roll for the year was 1,062; the greatest number present on one day being 852, (as opposed to 905 in 1891). In spite of this decrease, the attendance continues to be far in excess of the 700 estimated by the late Dr. STEWART in 1881, and of the 770 estimated by myself in 1887 as the probable accommodation required in the new building. The number of school days, 237, shows a gain of a week on last year's statistics, and is the highest figure reached since 1885.

  3. ATTENDANCE.-As my remarks on this head last year were misunderstood, as relating quite a new experience, I must explain that, though I first drew attention to this point last year, the short school-life of too many of our scholars has always been a matter of regret. Take for example, at random, the year 1885; out of a total number of 596, there were 205 admissions and 210 departures, i.e., roughly speaking, one-third of the scholars was changed, precisely as was the case last The natural consequence is that at the end of the year we can only present for examination the remaining two-thirds; which has been the average for the last ten years, as a glance at the figures in paragraph 2 of my Reports will testify. Few boys stay more than a year in the highest class, while owing to the higher education now given in the Second and Third Classes, many boys are able to obtain situations without entering the First Class at all.

  4. EDUCATIONAL EMULATION.--Five years ago I uttered a note of warning on this subject. (Gazette, 1888, p. 159., par. 11.). A certain amount of emulation amongst scholars may be healthful, but emulation among masters (even in the same school) is prejudicial to the interests of education. Sympathy and affectionate interest are the mainspring of true education. Schoolmasters are but human; if the results of competitions are the only test of success in education, it cannot but be that the quiet judicious training of each boy will, in the excitement of contest, be sacrificed to the working np of a machine to the highest point of tension. No two schools in the Colony work under the same conditions; I would go further and say that no two years does the same school find itself in a precisely

p.171.

166

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH MARCH, 1893.

similar situation as to advantages or hindrances. The greater success of one year does not transform the more average attainments of succeeding years into failure. This being so, all comparisons between schools should be avoided on principle. Every school in the Colony is doubtless doing its best to further education, and no man or institution can do more. Let it be granted that all the schools stand upon this common platform of excellence and no particular school on a solitary pinnacle. The successes of one school may one year appear to suggest that it is absolutely the best, but this hasty judgment is checked by the above consideration of varying conditions. During the last few years there has been some indication of a decrease of harmony among the various schools of this Colony. This is not due to the introduction of the Government Scholarship, Local Examinations, Belilios Medals, &c., but to the unwise application of the results of these as a criterion whereby the system of each school, the energy and ability of each master, is to be adjudged as above or below the standard of competency. The only sense in which a school should admit fighting to be a duty incumbent upon it, is that every school is a company belonging to the vast army that battles all over the world against ignorance and crime. If the great victory is to be achieved it will surely not be by means of petty jealousies and internecine conflicts among the various regiments of the army. Let them fight side by side and not turn their swords against each other.

 5. EDUCATIONAL THEORIES.--It is a trite and true saying that an ounce of practice is worth a ton of theory. Left in charge of a nephew and niece of tender years, the profound philosopher HERBERT SPENCER found his theory of education impracticable even for a few hours. The chief error of theorists on education would appear to be relegating to the schoolmaster the influence of parents, and the duty of developing the infantile mind which was assigned by nature to the mother. As regards Victoria College its singular conditions require a system of its own. With boys of 14 to 20 years of age at admission, who only stay in school from four to six years, the Head Master is unable to adopt ready made theories of FROEBEL, RAUB or other celebrated educationists, whose systems postulate a curriculum of 10 to 15 years and a commencement of school-life about the age of seven.

6. COST OF BUILDING.-Neither Dr. STEWART nor myself is responsible for the excessive outlay in the erection of this College. We were both advocates for a plain commodious building. Such items as $10,000 for a lead roof and $7,000 for monolith pillars formed no part of our conception of neces- sities for a school-building. It should also not be forgotten that the estimated value (at least $80,000 in 1888) of the old Central School should be deducted from the gross cost of the new building, as it was always understood that on the evacuation of the Central School the site was to be sold to partially cover the cost of its substitute.

 7. COST OF ESTABLISHMENT.-A rate of per cent. on the house rental of the Colony would defray the expenses of Victoria College, whereas a Board School rate of 5 per cent. is very common in England, which is additional to the grant-in-aid paid out of the taxes. It is sometimes urged that Victoria College is chiefly for the benefit of the Chinese and that its maintenance falls heavily on the ratepayers of Hongkong. In the first place per cent. is not a heavy rate, and secondly the argument overlooks the large preponderance of Chinese ratepayers in the Colony. As one-ninth of the scholars are non- Chinese it would appear that the cost of maintenance is pretty equitably distributed among the rate- payers; for though Europeans possess one-third of the rateable property in the Colony a large portion of this European property is occupied by Chinese who are the real ratepayers, their European landlords of course recovering all rates from their tenants.

 8. COST OF SCHOOL MATERIAL.-The charge of fees during the holiday months of February and August was specially made in 1884 to cover this expense, and has ever since amply effected its object, with a balance in favour of the Treasury.

9. STAFF. The number of masters, English and Chinese, now on the staff was recommended by me in a special report to the Government in 1887, and approved as absolutely necessary by a Commission consisting of Dr. STEWART, Dr. EITEL, and myself. During the past year Messrs. BOOTH and Boards returned to England at the end of their three years' agreement; and Messrs. MACHELL and WATTS were appointed provisionally as their successors. Mr. MACHELL is an enthusiast in matters connected with education, and labours in and out of school hours for the good of his boys and the prestige of the College. Mr. DEALY was absent on leave throughout the year.

10. NON-CHINESE BOYS.-I have long observed that non-Chinese boys have suffered great disadvantage in being placed in large classes of Chinese boys, generally five years or more older than themselves. They felt disheartened by their inability to cope on equal terms with their seniors, and being in a small minority were, in spite of the best intention of their masters, liable to be overlooked. In the Central School their numbers did not justify me in forming special classes for their behoof. At the opening of this school-year, however, I formed two sections, Classes I. C and III. C, composed entirely of boys not in Chinese. dress, and the benefits accruing from this arrangement are already evident.

 11. COLLOQUIAL ENGLISH.-Three years ago in my report (Gazette, 1890, p. 426, par. 8) I pointed out that the great need in the College was some stimulus without which boys, who are only day-scholars and never speak a word of English out of school-hours, cannot be expected to acquire the art of speaking

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH MARCH, 1893.

167

 English. On my arrival, in 1882, I found the subject, colloquial English, set down on the time table for one hour a week on Saturdays. I looked forward to it with interest, but discovered that even in the able hands of Mr. FALCONER the so-called conversation was a lecture, occasionally varied by the interjection on the part of the pupils of affirmative or negative monosyllables. When the Time Table was remodelled this hour was allotted to other subjects, as the object intended did not appear to be attained. This year, however, I hope I have discovered the needed stimulus both for scholar and master, in making colloquial English a subject of examination for prize purposes. When a boy finds himself, say fifth, in a class where but for loss of marks in conversation he would have been first, there can be no doubt that all ambitious boys will awake to the necessity of speaking English. The sixth class is the lowest in which boys can attempt making spoken English sentences; here then we begin, and each boy is required after reading a passage to reply to questions and suggestions upon what he has been reading. This custom, previously in vogue as an exercise of intelligence, is now definitely employed as a channel for leading to conversation. High marks are only given where rarer intelligence is displayed in the form and nature of the replies. In the higher classes the questions roam widely over any field within the range of thought of the scholars. As evidence of the thoroughness of the examination it is well to state that ten days are absorbed in assigning marks to this subject jointly with Reading.

   12. CHINESE EXAMINATIONS.-Chinese essay-writing may be compared to Latin or Greek verse at English schools. Neither of them is in itself of real service in daily after-life, the exercise is mecha- nical, and the pupils who develop talent over it are few; it still remains a test of scholarship and of knowledge of rules of composition, and as such is considered part of a gentleman's training. There would, however, appear to be no searching test of the bulk of the work done in the year. I therefore enquired of my Chinese assistants whether there were nothing in Chinese examinations corresponding to a literature or Shakespeare paper at the local examinations. The result of my enquiry has been the introduction of a few test questions (King Ku) on the classical Chinese which they have read

in the course of the year, but which has hitherto remained untested.

13. DISCIPLINE.---The discipline in English school continues exemplary; the cane is but rarely requisitioned, and that chiefly in the Preparatory school, where newcomers are unaccustomed to laws of sudordination. The cheerful happy spirit that pervades the classrooms is made subject of congra- tulation by every casual visitor. In Chinese school, too, the maintenance of discipline seems to have as nearly reached perfection as can be expected. Any old master, who can with me remember the old days at the Central School, when an audible "hush," often initiated by the Chinese master, announced the approach of the English master in charge suddenly checking the murmur of conversation and laughter in the classroom, would be astonished at the decorum and orderliness now prevalent, whenever a surprise visit is made.

   14. COMMERCIAL EDUCATION.-Victoria College has not ignored the modern tendency in this direction. For three years Bookkeeping, with lessons on commercial phraseology, has formed a part of the annual work, in addition to commercial arithmetic (discount, interest, exchange, shares, &c.) which has never been neglected. Last March over 120 boys were attending lessons in bookkeeping, and last July a Chinese boy from this College was one of the few, out of all England, that passed in this subject at the Oxford Local Senior Examinations. As regards Shorthand, I am opposed to its introduction simply on the ground that the phonetic principle involved would cause irreparable confusion in the minds of boys to whom the eccentricities of English spelling are still a sufficient difficulty. Typewriting can from the nature of the case never become a class subject.

   15. OXFORD LOCAL EXAMINATIONS.--Six out of the eight candidates from this College passed last July. As the three Chinese candidates all passed, I hope that larger numbers will offer in the future; the chief hindrance is the entrance fee, $7.50, which is a serious consideration to most of our aspirants.

   16. RECREATION.--A considerable improvement is noticeable in the drill this year. Understanding the great interest His Excellency the Governor takes in this matter, the senior boys (or rather men) have to some extent overcome their national prejudice to physical exercise, which they view as undig nified. The juniors have, however, taken to it con amore; and in two or three years' time, drill may be expected to have become universally popular throughout the College. Through Mr. MACHELL'S energy the former spasmodic efforts at cricket and football have been systematised. Mr. BARLOW organised some excursions by land and water, including a visit to the City Hall Museum. The advantages derived by this lively interest in scholars out of school-hours cannot be over-estimated, both for its effect on developing intelligence, and for its moral influence.

   17. ANNUAL EXAMINATION.--In accordance with the suggestion of the Inspector of Schools in his report of last year, his annual inspection of the College has been transferred to the month of July. The annual examination, thus left under the sole control of the Head Master, has been conducted strictly on the same lines as in the past ten years. Half marks constitute a pass in any single subject; a class pass consists of passing in at least half the subjects offered by the class. The number of class subjects thus offered is as follows:- Preparatory School, six; Lower School, ten; Upper School,

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH MARCH, 1893.

A boy must pass in three, five, and seven subjects respectively to secure a pass, which is by no means a lenient requirement. It must be understood that a considerable proportion pass in every subject offered, while minimum passes are very rare. The total number present for examination was 671, of whom 645, or 96 per cent., passed, which is the highest percentage since 1887. The three sections of the College are thus represented

As the corresponding passes last year were respectively 92, 84, and 99, it will be seen at once that the great gain is in the Lower School. Nor is this to be wondered at, the failure of 30 boys last year in the three sections of Class V. has now been succeeded by the remarkably good result of only three failures. I attribute the great improvement this year to the fact that masters have devoted more direct attention to the weaker portions of their classes, the necessity of this having been emphasised by last year's results.

years.

The whole staff, English and Chinese, deserves the greatest credit for the excellent work presented. To particularise, the work of the Preparatory School has maintained the high level of previous As just stated, the success of the Lower School has entirely removed the disgrace of last year's failure in Class V.; each class has done excellently, but Classes IVA, IVB, and V? are conspicuous above the rest, for high tone of work as well as high percentages. In the Upper School Ia, IIa, and IIIA have sustained the excellent reputation of last year; IIIB has done as well as its material (the lowest boys promoted from Class IV) will admit of; Ic, and IIIc, the new classes of non-Chinese boys, have had great difficulties to contend with, and the upper sections have done very well, while the half dozen boys at the head of Ic have distinguished themselves by thoughtful papers and neat work; the lower sections of these classes and IB appear, however, to have suffered from an attempt to drag them up to the level of their seniors, which has resulted in an inability to cope with even easy questions.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH MARCH, 1893.

Remarks on individual subjects:-

 Reading. Very good indeed, more attention requires to be paid to phrasing, punctuation, and expression in the highest classes.

 Colloquial.-473 boys were examined and 76 per cent. passed. As this is a new departure, the success is satisfactory.

Dictation.-Considerable improvement in both spelling and writing, much higher percentage of

passes.

 Composition. A very marked advance. Many boys intelligently employed their imaginations to grasp the situations in the stories and used very appropriate phrases of their own selection to provide details suggested but not related; so that there was very little of the usual style of exercise com- pounded of dictation and memory work.

 Grammar.-Excellent work in Lower School, and very good in Upper School. More attention in the First class requires to be paid to parsing and analysis. The order to parse fully is not carried out by a style of parsing that would scarcely pass in the fourth class.

 History.-Very successfully taught; foolish answers suggestive of inattention and a futile attempt to cram, very rare.

 Mathematics.-Arithmetic same percentage as the total pass last year. Algebra very weak in IB. Euclid, generally good.

Geography. Well taught, including excellent maps from memory.

Shakespeare.-Good papers by several boys in the three sections of Class I.

Translation from and to Chinese.-Very good, specially the latter.

Latin-Only taught in the non-Chinese classes, has attained but a poor standard. Book-keeping.-Very marked improvement on last year.

 General Intelligence.-This paper consists of questions on subjects that do not form part of actual class work, but on which every intelligent boy is supposed to have some ideas from conversation or general reading. The considerable improvement observed is doubtless due to the attention paid to colloquial.

 Special Subjects.--Chemistry shows distinct improvement; this is the first time in the history of the College that a practical examination has been held in this subject. Drawing was introduced this year with very good results. Trigonometry offered by three boys was not well done by any, though two passed.

19. PUPIL TEACHERS AND MONITORS.-Three of the monitors came out at the head of the Poll; one of them is therefore Morrison Scholar, quite a rare event during the last few years. The rest passed a satisfactory examination in the usual subjects, including a paper on the theory and history of education. In the test of practical work before the class, the four who had more than a year's experience gave their orders and instruction in a highly satisfactory manner. The remaining four, who had been accustomed to teach only during the last few months, taught very creditably, with one exception. Great care was taken over reading and spelling, but I observed that in every case the teacher was of opinion that the dictation lesson was over when the number of mistakes on each boy's slate (marked by another boy) was reported by himself; there was no inspection to criticise hand- writing or discover omitted mistakes. Lessons in early stages of arithmetic were not sufficiently simple.

 20. SCHOLARSHIPS.-As the marks obtained at the competition for the Government scholarship have not yet been published, we are ignorant of how our two candidates fared, beyond the fact that neither is at the head. The Trustees of the Morrison scholarship have instituted a junior scholarship of $25 a year for three years, to be awarded to the head boy, of the Lower School, as the Senior is gained by the dux of the College. The Stewart Scholarship wsa this year gained by the head boy of the junior section of the first class. The Belilios Trustees have enhanced the value of these two scholarships by the addition of Shakespeare to the senior subjects, and History to the junior. The Bain Engineering scholarship has been withdrawn, as no candidate has offered since its foundation. students have been nominated Belilios Medical scholars in connexion with the College of Medicine.

Two

21. PRIZES.-In thanking the many generous contributors to our prize fund, I would draw attention to the yearly increasing contributions from the Chinese residents, which, as the Inspector of Schools remarked with truth at the distribution of prizes to the Government Central School for Girls, is the most reliable evidence of their full confidence in the management of the institution.

It is hereby notified that on and after Tuesday next, the 14th instant, owing to the scarcity of water, the supply will only be turned on between the hours of 6 and 9 A.M. and 6 and 8 P.M.

As it is anticipated that the pressure in the mains will, under the above circumstances, be insuffi- cient to secure the delivery of water at the levels of the upper floors of houses in portions of the city, the attention of the public is directed to the numerous street fountains fixed throughout the city from which a limited supply can be obtained.

It is hereby notified that on and after Tuesday next, the 14th instant, owing to the scarcity of water, the supply will only be turned on between the hours of 6 and 9 A.M. and 6 and 8 P.M.

As it is anticipated that the pressure in the mains will, under the above circumstances, be insuffi- cient to secure the delivery of water at the levels of the upper floors of houses in portions of the city, the attention of the public is directed to the numerous street fountains fixed throughout the city from which a limited supply can be obtained.

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 aud 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 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.

PUBLIC WORKS OFFICE, HONGKONG, 7th February, 1893.

REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1892.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward you a report on the works carried out by this Department during the past year. Owing to the amalgamation of the Surveyor General's and the Water and Drainage Departments early in the year, I propose to deal in this report with the whole of the Public Works previously in charge of these two departments.

ANNUALLY RECURRENT WORKS.

 2. Repairs of Buildings.-The following new Buildings were completed in 1891. The Civil Hospital Coolie Quarters, Lunatic Asylum for Chinese, Police Stations at Aberdeen, Kennedy Town and Quarry Bay, and the District School Saiyingpun, the maintenance and repair of which therefore became chargeable during the past year to this vote.

 3. The old Central School has been removed, the site being utilised for the erection of "The Belilios School for Girls."

 4. The total number of Buildings of all description now in charge of this Department is one hundred and twenty-nine.

 The whole of these, with the exception of Mountain Lodge which has practically been abandoned, have been maintained in a satisfactory condition.

 5. Extensive repairs to the roof at Government House and the floors of the Supreme Court House were carried out during the latter part of the year.

 During the repairs of the Supreme Court temporary accommodation was provided at the Masonic Hall in Zetland Street.

 6. The construction of a small addition to the Magistracy mentioned in my last report was completed in the month of April.

 7. The following buildings have been painted externally, Shektongtsui Market, Stanley Police Station, Taitam Police Station and Saiyingpun Market.

 8. The re-drainage of the Harbour Officers' Quarters and of the Government Office Stables has been effected.

 9. The contractors for the work done in connection with the repair and maintenance of Govern- ment Buildings during the past year have been Mr. A Ho? for work within the City of Victoria and Messrs. CHAN A TONG & Co. for work outside the city.

 10. For the purpose of checking the expenditure incurred by this Department on buildings in occupation by other departments, separate departmental accounts have been kept during the past year.

The following list shews the several headings of account and the expenditure against them :---

 11. Maintenance of Telegraphs.-During the past year a good deal has been done towards the more efficient maintenance of the Telegraph lines; iron poles have been substituted for wooden ones wherever the latter have required renewal.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH MARCH, 1893.

211

   12. In August last, C.S.O. 2, I submitted a report on the present system of Government telegraphs and suggested certain alterations, including the more general introduction of Telephones, for the improvement of electrical communication between the several Police Stations and Government Buildings throughout the Colony.

   Provision has been made in this year's estimates for meeting to a large extent the expenditure involved in introducing these improvements.

   13. Public Cemetery.-The Public Cemetery has been maintained in a satisfactory manner without involving any exceptional expenditure.

The number of interments during the year has been eighty-two.

14. Maintenance of Praya Wall and Piers.-The usual repairs have been carried out and the Praya Wall and Piers maintained in a satisfactory condition.

15. A settlement has occurred in the Praya Wall in front of Marine Lots 177-181 Praya West. This settlement does not at present endanger either the safety of the wall or roadway but it will be necessary shortly to raise the wall to its original level. Upon this subject I shall address you a separate communication.

16. The new pier at Yaumati was completed in March last, at a cost of $4,274.27.

17. Maintenance of Lighthouses.-The Lighthouses are in an efficient state of repair and no extra- ordinary expenditure has been incurred on their maintenance.

18. Maintenance of Disinfector.--The Disinfector has been maintained in good working order though seldom required during the past year,

   19. In the month of December last the Disinfector was placed in charge of the Sanitary Board as the department most frequently requiring its use. The building and apparatus is still periodically inspected and maintained by this department, and any expenditure incurred for this purpose is charged against the vote "Repairs to Buildings."

   20. Dredging Foreshores.-During the past year 48,200 cubic yards of material have been removed from the harbour at a cost of $8,075.39 including the cost of ordinary maintenance of the dredger. Exceptional expenditure has, however, been incurred on repairs to the machinery and hull of the dredger amounting to $884.87.

The annual contract for the removal of material dredged was let to Messrs. CHAN A TONG & Co.

9

   21. Miscellaneous Works.-Several minor works have been carried out the more important of which are:-the construction of a Block House at Samsuipo, Contract No. 1892, by TSANG A SIN; the construction of a fire-proof room for the use of the Supreme Court and Land Office; the con- struction of a gravel Tennis Court at Government House, and the erection of twelve Post Office Pillar Boxes in the City and Hill Districts.

   22. Maintenance of Roads and Bridges in Victoria.-The Roads and Streets have been maintainfed in as satisfactory a condition as the extensive works of sewerage and water supply carried out by this Department and the works carried out by the Telegraph and Gas Companies during the past year would admit.

   23. Garden Road has been concreted, Praya East, Bonham Road, Caine Road and Queen's Road Central have been macadamized, and Bullock and Cross Lanes, Wanchai, have been formed, channelled and kerbed.

Granite paving has been laid at some of the more important street crossings in the City.

   24. The Bridges have been maintained in a satisfactory state of repair without involving any exceptional expenditure.

   25. A new approach road has been constructed to Kennedy Town Police Station, Contract Tz, by Mr. Foo SIK.

26. The annual contract for repairs to Roads and Bridges in the City was let to Mr. CHING LAI KEE. 27. Maintenance of Roads and Bridges out of Victoria.-Plantation and Mount Gough Roads in the Peak District have been concreted, the road from Aberdeen to Stanley thoroughly repaired, and the portion as far as Little Hongkong macadamized.

   28. General repairs have been carried out on most of the Roads and Bridges in the outlying districts.

   29. The Bridges at Deep Water Bay and Tsin-shui-wan mentioned in my last report have been reconstructed of iron and concrete, as have also the Bridges on the Little Hongkong New Road and the one at Wong-nei-chung which was damaged by the rain-storm of 1889.

   30. Maintenance of Roads and Bridges in Kowloon.-These have been maintained in an efficient state of repair without involving any exceptional expenditure.

   31. Maintenance of Water Works.-The whole of the works enumerated in my annual report dated the 13th of January, 1892, under the heading Existing Works together with those new works described therein as complete have been maintained in a satisfactory condition without any exceptional expenditure.

212

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH MARCH, 1893.

 32. The Wong-nei-chung and Mint Dam reservoirs have been utilized for the supply of water to the East Point and Bowrington Sugar Refineries.

 33. During the winter of 1891-92, steps were taken to measure the minimum supply obtainable during the dry season from the Mint Dam works. From the measurements made it appears that a minimum supply of 100,000 gallons per diem can be relied on during an ordinary dry season.

 34. Satisfactory arrangements have been made during the past year by which the long pending question as to the rights of Messrs. JARDINE, MATHESON & Co. over the Mint Dam Works has been settled, the Government undertaking, in consideration of Messrs. JARDINE, MATHESON foregoing all rights over these works, to supply free of cost, 100,000 gallons per diem to the East Point Works.

 35. The Taitam and Pokfulam Filter Beds have been in constant use throughout the year. The quantity of water filtered at the former being 843,010,474 gallons and at the latter 260,364,100 gallons, giving an average rate of filtration of 848 gallons per square yard per 24 hours in the case of Taitam and 708 gallons per square yard per 24 hours in the case of Pokfulam.

 36. The total expenditure on the maintenance of the Water Works including those of the Hill District during the year 1892 has been $9,996.75 divided as follows:-

Maintaining Taitam Reservoir, Conduit and Filter Beds including supplying Sand and

cleaning Filters, $2,900.95.

Maintaining Pokfulam Reservoir, Conduit and Filter Beds including supplying Sand and

cleaning Filters, $1,038.48.

Maintaining the Distribution Works including cost of pumping water to the higher levels

of the City and the Hill District and inspection of House Services, $6,057.32.

 37. The total quantity of water supplied to the City and Hill District was 1,183,647,574 gallons so that the cost per 1,000,000 gallons supplied has been $8.45.

 38. The tabular statement in Appendix 4 shows the quantity of water abstracted from the Taitam, Pokfulam, Wong-nei-chung and Mint Dam Reservoirs during the past year.

 39. In Appendices B and C will be found diagrams prepared from the annual report of the Director of the Government Observatory dated 15th April, 1892, shewing the monthly rainfall for the last 39 years and the rainfall for the months of September to May inclusive and for the months of October to April inclusive over the same period.

 The portions coloured brown represent the actual rainfall and that coloured blue the average rainfall.

 40. The ordinary dry season may be said to extend over the months of October to April inclusive or a period of 212 days, the average rainfall for that period being 18.74 inches.

 41. When the rainfall for the months of September to May inclusive or over a period of 273 days falls much below the average as was the case in 1890 and 1891, and in 1885 and 1886, and 1886 and 1887, such period is one of exceptional drought, but their somewhat frequent occurrence points only too clearly to the necessity of exercising the utmost economy in the use of water and the most careful watchfulness against its misuse or waste.

 42. A comparatively low rainfall or one much below the average during the months of September and October generally indicates an unusually lengthened period of drought.

 43. As will be seen from the diagrams the rainfall during the dry season (October to April) of 1891 and 1892 was considerably above the average and the rainfall from September to May was also above it, consequently the scarcity of water experienced during the early part of 1891 and referred to

my last annual report was not again experienced during the early part of 1892.

in

44. In view of the mistaken idea that seems generally prevalent in the Colony that now that the big reservoir at Taitam" has been constructed there cannot possibly be any scarcity of water I make no apology for entering rather more fully into the most important question of the capabilities of the present sources of supply and storage reservoirs to meet the ordinary requirements of a population of some 146,000 persons.

 45. To take the most favourable circumstances let us say that both the reservoirs at Taitam and Pokfulam are full on the 1st of September, that is to say we have a supply of 378,000,000 gallons, to this must be added the dry weather flow into these reservoirs which amounts approximately in the case of Taitam to 150,000 gallons per diem and in the case of Pokfulam to 100,000 gallons per diem, (I say approximately for it is only recently that means have been available for ascertaining the dry weather flow at Pokfulam and in the case of Taitam no means are as yet available,) neglecting evapora- tion we get a total supply available from these sources of 446,250,000 gallons during the period of 273 days or at the rate of 1,635,000 gallons per diem giving an average allowance of 11 gallons nearly per head per diem for a population of 146,000.

46. On examining the Table 42 annexed to my last report and Appendix A it will be seen that the consumption during the months of September to May inclusive was 763,645,000 gallons or at the rate of 19 gallons per head per diem.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH MARCH, 1893.

213

7

   47. The supply obtainable from the Taitam and Pokfulam Catchment areas during a dry season of 273 days' duration is therefore insufficient to meet the present requirements of the City.

48. In November 1890, there being every appearance of a protracted dry season certain streams along the Taitam Conduit were intercepted.

   During the last two years some further streams have been diverted into the Taitam and Pokfulam Conduits. The dry weather yield of these springs may be taken approximately at 350,000 gallons per diem or a total of 95,550,000 gallons during a protracted dry season of 273 days' duration.

49. Adding this to the supply obtainable from the Taitam and Pokfulam Catchment areas we get a total supply of 541,800,000 gallons or 221,845,000 less than the requirements of the City during such a period.

50. Though the matter is receiving careful consideration I am not at present in a position to make any definite proposal for materially increasing the quantity of water available for distribution within the City during such seasons as I have above described, and which do actually occur from time to time as was only too evident in the winter of 1890 and 1891 when the intermittent system of supply had to be resorted to during the months of February, March, April and a portion of May.

   51. It is obvious from the foregoing that if the time has not actually arrived when steps for increasing the water supply should be taken in hand it cannot be very far off if the population of the City continues to increase. It therefore behoves every water consumer to exercise the greatest vigilance against the waste and misuse of water and to banish from his mind at once the idea that the supply contained in the "big reservoir at Taitam" is inexhaustible.

   52. Quality of Water.-I am indebted to Mr. W. E. CROW, Government Analyst, for monthly analyses of the Pokfulam and Taitam Water before and after filtration. The results of these analyses are contained in Appendices E and F, an examination of which will shew that the filters have acted effectually during the past year and the high standard of purity of the water distributed has been maintained.

   53. Consumption of Water-Various details as to the consumption of water during the past year will be found in Appendix D from which it will be seen the total consumption in the City and Hill District amounted to 1,183,647,574 gallons the maximum obtaining during the month of August and the minimum during the month of February.

   54. Taking the resident civil population at 152,000 and deducting the water supplied exclusively for trade purposes, and also that supplied for the Public Gardens and Markets, and to the Military (22,701,000 gallons) and Naval Establishments (5,044,000 gallons), we obtain an average consumption by the Civil Population for domestic purposes over the whole year of 19 gallons per head per diem.

   55. In accordance with Section 14 of the Water Works Ordinance, meters have been fixed for the supplies of several Government institutions. These are enumerated in Appendix G.

   56. During the past year the services to 2,069 houses have been inspected, of which 1,035 were found defective. These have now been put in order, though I regret to say that several instances have come to my notice where after the owners of property have gone to the expense of laying on water to premises, putting taps and fittings in order for the convenience of their tenants and the prevention of waste the improved fittings have been removed and defective ones substituted.

   57. Doubtless the improved fittings had been removed and fixed in adjoining premises by unscru- pulous persons for the purpose of putting the water services in order by the time came for their inspection.

   58. If occupiers of premises would, say even once a week, inspect the taps and fittings they would be saved a great deal of trouble and annoyance due from the loss of their property, the constant presence of workmen in their houses and the possibility of the water being temporarily cut off owing to the great waste taking place on account of the existence of defective taps and fittings.

59. In Appendix J will be found diagrams shewing the hourly consumption of water during period of 24 hours in the months of August and December, 1891, and March, June and December, 1892.

60. The consumption of water during the night doubtless strikes many not acquainted with the habits of the population as very large, but it is in a great measure accounted for especially during the summer months by the various trades the Chinese carry on during the night. The premises in which these trades are followed are gradually being singled out and meters fixed on the services. Further the lavish use of water by the nightsoil coolies for the washing out of utensils is another factor tending to swell the consumption during the night.

61. These causes do not, however, account for the whole of the night consumption. By the use of Tylors waste detecting meters, houses have been found in which taps have purposely been left run- ning, probably for the greater part of the night, owing to the erroneous impression that such a dribble of water flushes out the house drain. I have not the slightest hesitation in saying that one bucket of water poured rapidly down a drain will do more good by way of keeping it clean than 100 buckets wasted by allowing taps to run in this manner. A further source of constant waste is the prevalent practice of turning on taps and washing clothes and other articles by allowing the water to run freely over them instead of filling a bucket or tub and washing articles in such bucket or tub.

>

214

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH MARCH, 1893.

62. These are matters that can only be dealt with by the occupiers of premises and unless such Careless waste of water is prevented by them I can only suggest that all occupiers be called on to take their supply by meter, pay meter rent, and pay for the quantity of water actually consumed.

63. Meters.-During the year, 66 meters have been fixed varying in size from 3ths of an inch to 3 inches, making the total number now in use 130.

64. The quantity of water supplied by meter will be seen on reference to Appendix D.

65. House Service. The demands made on this department to lay on water to private tenements and repair existing defective services still continue large, 507 applications having been received and attended to during the past year, the cost being paid by the applicant.

66. The total number of houses now connected with the water mains in the City of Victoria is 3,463 and in the Hill District 79.

 67. Maintenance of Sewers.-As the new sewerage works progress the old sewers in the higher levels of the City are rapidly becoming storm-water drains only. The diversion of the sewage proper from those in the lower levels will be a work of time, but until this is done we cannot hope to get rid of the effluvia that sometimes arises from gully gratings especially during the dry season.

 68. The construction of gullies which intercept a large quantity of road detritus and other material finding its way into the side channels has doubtless caused a marked improvement in the condition of the large storm-water drains in some portions of the City.

 69. The cleaning out of these gullies and the removal of the deposit from them is, as pointed out in my last annual report, a matter of considerable importance. This work is included in the Scavenging Contract and is under the supervision of the Sanitary Board and its Officers.

 70. The whole of the sewers and storm-water drains have been maintained in a satisfactory condition without incurring any exceptional expenditure, except in one instance where a portion of the Robinson Road sewer, Kowloon, had to be taken up and re-laid on account of the roots of trees having found access into it.

 71. Though trees along the sides of roads are very useful for shade purposes they (especially banyan trees) very much interfere with the maintenance of roads and drains, and I am of opinion the planting and growth of trees along the road sides within the built area should not be further encouraged.

72. The expenditure on account of Annually Recurrent Works will be found in Appendix M. 73. Street Lighting.-The lighting of the City by Gas and Electricity has been satisfactorily carried out under the contracts with the Hongkong and China Gas Company dated 4th January, 1892. and the Electric Company dated 15th October, 1890, and 10th April, 1891, for periods of three years, 74. Gas lamps have been erected in the roads and streets of Yaumati and Tsimshatsui, Kowloon, and were first lighted on the 1st of November.

75. The total number of Gas lamps lighted in the City of Victoria is 641 and in Kowloon 78. 76. The total number of Electric lights in the City of Victoria is 75.

LAND SURVEY BRANCH.

 77. During the past year 13 land sales have taken place, the area leased being 4,129,143 square feet, including Kowloon Farm Lot No. 13 of an area of 53 acres. The premiums realized amounting to $113,562.00.

 78. A portion of Kowloon Farm Lot No. 13 has been converted into Inland Lots and 1,477,700 square feet of the adjoining property has been granted to the lessee of this lot partly as Inland and partly as Marine lots subject to special conditions as to construction of roads, sewers, &c. (C.S.O. 58).

 79. Extensions to existing lots of a total area of 267,367 square feet have been granted, premiums realized being $12,506.21.

80. Leases have been issued for the New Marine and Inland Lots reclaimed in front of the Wharf and Godown Co.'s premises at West Point comprising a total area of 85,386 square feet, and also for the New Marine Lots reclaimed at Kennedy Town comprising a total area of 202,409 square feet.

 81. Surveys have been made, boundaries corrected and plans and particulars forwarded to the Land Office for the issue of 253 leases.

 82. Surveys have been made of the villages of Pokfulam, Little Hongkong (old and new), Tai Hang Tsun, and the Chinese cemeteries at Mount Davis, Aberdeen, Stanley, Sheko, Shaukiwan, and Caroline Hill.

 83. As will be seen from the tabular statement on the next page, 1,880 squatter's licences have been issued, the fees for which amount to $6,380.89.

 84. Considerable difficulty has been experienced in the collection of fees from the squatters, several continuing to occupy Crown Land without taking out or renewing their licences.

85. It is, however, to be hoped the steps now being taken and the consideration given by the Squatters Board to the claims of many squatters in the villages, with a view to definitely defining their holdings and granting leases where practicable, will eventually place the occupation of Crown Land in the outlying villages on a satisfactory basis.

86. The claims in respect of Wongneichung, Aberdeen and Pokfulam have been considered. The lease plans and particulars for the issue of the leases in the first of these villages have been forwarded to the Land Office and the same information in respect of the two latter villages is in course of pre- paration.

87. The construction of New Roads in Kowloon has rendered practicable the settlement of some of the long outstanding questions respecting the conversion of certain Garden Lots situated in Tsim- shatsui into Inland Lots.

WORK UNDER THE BUILDING ORDINANCE.

88. During the past year 8 plans for 11 European houses, 38 plans for 221 Chinese houses, 41 plans for miscellaneous structures, and 129 plans for alterations to existing buildings have been sub- mitted, making in all 216 plans deposited under Section 69 of Ordinance 15 of 1889.

  89. Two hundred and twenty-two (222) buildings have been certified under Section 53 of Ordinance 15 of 1889.

90. Permission has been given to erect 41 verandahs and 12 piers over Crown Land.

91. Notices have been issued to remove or repair dangerous structures in 117 instances and to remove verandah enclosures in 3.

92. Seven hundred and ninety-five (795) miscellaneous notices and permits for the erection of scaffolding, opening roads, &c., &c., have been issued.

  93. Forty-eight (48) permits have been issued for the erection and repair of monuments and enclosures in the Colonial Cemetery, the fees for which amount to $88.16.

94. All plans deposited have been duly registered and numbered; the registers are complete up to date.

EXTRAORDINARY PUBLIC WORKS.

3

 95. Central Market. The difficulty experienced in getting the contractor for the construction of the foundations and walls of this building to the level of the plinth to complete his contract, delayed the entry of another contractor to complete the building until the middle of August last, though the tender of Messrs. CHAN A TONG & Co., Contract No. T; for the completion of the building was accepted in May. Since August the work has proceeded rapidly and in a very satisfactory manner. The walls are now up to within about 4 feet of the level of the upper floor and the columns, 94 in number for supporting the floor, have been erected.

96. The whole of the ironwork for the upper floor has arrived, and the erection of the girders, &c., will be proceeded with very shortly. The work already done under the present contract includes the building of 1,000 cubic yards of brickwork and 8,000 cubic feet of dressed granite, in addition to the erection of the columns before mentioned.

 97. The area of the site occupied by the market is 51,274 square feet and the floor-space on each floor is over 30,000 square feet.

 98. The Gap Rock Lighthouse.-This work was practically completed by the 1st of April last on which date the light was first exhibited.

 99. The steam tender Fame has been maintained in good order and since the completion of the Lighthouse has been used for conveying men and materials for the erection of additional quarters for the telegraph clerk now stationed at the Rock in connection with the signalling of vessels, and for the relief of the lightkeepers.

100. The Fame was handed over to the Harbour Department in September.

 101. Reclamation in front of Marine Lots 240 to 246 Kennedy Town.-This work has been carried out by this department on behalf of the owners of the above lots. During the past year 14,500 cubic yards of filling, 517 cubic yards of concrete have been deposited in this work and 4,200 cubic feet of

The work is now practically completed. masonry set.

 102. Training Albany Nullah and Branches.-This work was completed in June last. It has, however, been found advisable to extend the substantial masonry invert through the tunnel under the Albany service reservoir, and this extension is now in hand.

103. New Roads and Preparatory Work Kennedy Road Sites.-The MacDonnell Road has been completed as far as it is at present proposed to carry it, but before this road is much used it will be necessary to improve its approach from the Garden Road by extending the road for its full width to join the Garden Road, necessitating re-arranging and re-constructing the Gardeners' Cottages.

 104. The re-arrangement and re-construction of the Gardeners' Cottages will not only make a reasonable approach to the MacDonnell Road practicable but will place at the disposal of the Botanical and Afforestation Department sanitary buildings for the accommodation of its workmen and will effect a long-needed improvement in the much frequented neighbourhood of Garden Road.

 105. Re-construction of Praya Bridge over Bowrington Canal.-This work was completed and opened for traffic in March last.

 106. Cattle Depot Extension.-The extension of the Cattle Depot at Kennedy Town providing additional accommodation for 120 head of cattle was completed in June last. The total accommodation at this depot now being for 480 head. The work was carried out in a satisfactory manner by Mr. CHEUNG NAM.

107. A shed, 65 feet long by 20 feet wide, has also been erected for the storage of fodder.

 108. Slaughter House, Pig and Sheep Depot.-The preparation of the site for these buildings was completed in June last. Plans and detail drawings for the buildings have been prepared and their erection will be commenced very shortly. A report on and detail plans of this work were forwarded to you on the 26th of June and adopted by the Sanitary Board on the 21st of July.

 109. Slaughter House, Kowloon.-This building was completed in June last and meets a want long felt by the residents in British Kowloon.

 110. Public Laundries.-The ten public laundries, which were in process of erection when I wrote my last annual report, have been completed and three are at present occupied at a rental of $15 each per month.

 111. Civil Hospital Staff Quarters.-After considerable trouble with the contractor I am glad to be able to report this building was completed and occupied in June last.

 112. Quarters for Superintendent of Botanical and Afforestation Department. This building was completed in February last by Mr. YEE HING in a very satisfactory and expeditious manner.

The old quarters, which had become beyond repair and practically uninhabitable, have been

removed.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH MARCH, 1893.

217

  113. Vaccine Institute.-This establishment was completed in March last and handed over to the Medical Department.

114. Additions to Government House. The installation of the Electric Light and internal decoration of this building have been completed during the past year. The electric lighting and decoration of the Ball room was finished early in the year, the remainder of the work was postponed till the summer.

115. Telegraph Cable to Gap Rock.--Providing telegraphic communication between the City of Victoria and the Gap Rock Lighthouse involved the construction of 5.25 statute miles of land line, and the laying of 29.80 nautical miles of cable.

  116. The land line constructed of galvanized iron wire No. 7. B.W.G. commencing at the Post Office is carried on iron poles along Pedder Street, the Praya, Zetland Street and Albert Road to the High-Level Tramway, then across Crown land on the west of the Tramway to Bowen Road, along the Bowen and Stanley Roads to Little Hongkong, and hence across Crown land to the Eastern Extension Telegraph Cable House at Deep Water Bay.

117. A connection is made with the Eastern Extension Telegraph Office for the convenience of testing. The test made on its completion gave the following results:-

Insulation resistance 1 Megohm. Conductivity resistance 67 Ohms.

118. The Cable connecting Deep Water Bay with Gap Rock is of the type known as type E (7-ton cable), the core being 130lbs. of gutta percha and 130lbs. of copper per knot protected by a brass ribbon, and was laid by the cable Steamer Store Nordiske.

Commencing from the Gap Rock the following lengths of cable were laid, viz. :-

25 fathoms covered with 10 iron wires No. 00. B.W.G.

50 fathoms covered with double covering of 10 iron wires Nos. 00 and 6. B.W.G.

50 fathoms covered with 10 iron wires No. 00. B.W.G.

29.68 miles covered with 10 iron wires No. 2. B.W.G.

making a total of 29.80 nautical miles and giving a slack of 2 p. c.

119. The test made on its completion at the Cable House, Deep Water Bay, gave the following results :--

Copper resistance 9.40 ohms per nautical mile 75°. Fah. Insulation resistance 2314.4 megohms per nautical mile. Inductive capacity .35 microfarads per nautical mile.

120. The whole of this work was done by the Eastern Extension and Great Northern Telegraph Companies and completed in March.

121. Morse Instruments are fixed to the terminals of the line at the Post Office and Gap Rock. 122. Gaol Extension.-The question of Gaol Extension was referred by His Excellency the Governor to a Special Committee in August last.

123. The Committee reported on the 15th November as to the best means of complying with the definite conditions laid down in the Secretary of State's despatch dated the 7th of July, 1892, and submitted detail plans of the proposed works.

124. The despatch and Committee's report have already been published. (Sessional Paper 882.) 125. No expenditure on account of the proposed project has as yet been authorised.

126. Kowloon New Roads. (C.S.O. 97).-Detail plans and estimates were laid before a meeting of the Public Works Committee held on the 23rd of May for the construction of Des Voeux, Granville, Cameron, Carnarvon, East and Middle Roads, also for the construction of roads south of Inland Lots 525, 574, 609 and 442. These were unanimously approved and a contract (No. 19) was entered into with Mr. KUM LAM for carrying out the proposed works.

6

127. The roads when completed will give easy means of access to many of the new Inland Lots, and Des V?ux Road, 45 feet in width skirting the western shore of Hung Hom Bay, will doubtless be a popular resort for the residents in Kowloon."

128. During the year 400 lineal yards of the sea wall protecting Des Voeux Road have been completed and backed up to the formation level of the new road.

129. The improvements to East Road have been practically completed and the construction of Cameron, Carnarvon and Granville Roads has been commenced.

130. Re-construction of Governor's Peak Residence.--Detail plans and estimates have been prepared and tenders obtained for the preparation of a site immediately to the west of Mountain Lodge and for the erection of the new building.

218

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH MARCH, 1893.

:

131. The proposed building is two stories in height occupying a ground area of 9,830 square feet, the coolie quarters and offices, which are one story in height, occupy a further area of 5,128 square feet. The area of the whole site, exclusive of the present site and adjoining grounds, is nearly one acre. 132. No expenditure on this work has as yet been authorised so that the actual work of con- struction is delayed for the present.

 133. Government Offices Extension.-Plans and Estimates have been prepared for the erection of a new two, storied block immediately to the west of the present Government Offices.

 134. A report giving particulars as to the proposed accommodation, &c., was submitted on the 9th of November.

135. No expenditure on this project has as yet been authorised.

 136. New Water Mains and Distributary System of Victoria Water Works.-The New Water Mains and Distributary System has been completed during the year so far as the present requirements of the City necessitate.

137. The following is a brief description of the City of Victoria Water Works.

 138. The two main sources of water supply are the Taitam and Pokfulam valleys in each of which reservoirs are constructed with overflow levels of 496.30 and 551.86 feet above Ordnance Datum, the former having a total capacity of 312,000,000 gallons and the latter 66,000,000 gallons.

The catchment areas are respectively 680 and 416 acres.

 139. From these reservoirs the water is conveyed to the City by covered masonry conduits contour- ing the hillsides, except for a distance of 7,344 feet in the case of the Taitam Conduit and for a distance of 663 in that of Pokfulam, where the hills have been pierced by tunnels.

The length of the Taitam Conduit is 44 miles and that of Pokfulam 2 miles.

 These conduits, however, intercept several perennial springs above the built area of the City which materially increase the supply available for distribution.

 140. The conduits terminate in the Filter Beds constructed at the Albany and at West Point (at levels of 469 and 388 feet above Ordnance Datum respectively) for the purpose of filtering the water from Taitam and Pokfulam respectively.

 141. After filtration the water is received into the service reservoirs constructed in close proximity to the filter beds. The capacity of the Albany service reservoir is 5,700,000 gallons and that of the West Point 940,000 gallons.

 142. The Taitam reservoir, filter beds and service reservoirs were completed in 1888 and a detail description of these works, written by Mr. J. ORANGE, Resident Engineer, will be found in Vo?ume C of the Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers 1889-90.

 143. The Pokfulam reservoir was constructed in 1866, the Conduit in 1877 and the Filter Beds and Service reservoir in 1890, a description of the two latter will be found in my annual report (Water and Drainage Department) dated 7th February, 1891.

 144. Distribution Works.-For the purpose of distributing water throughout the City cast and wrought-iron mains have been laid within reasonable distance of the whole of the built area. The total length of mains now existing is 30 miles.

 145. The City has been divided into four zones and special means have been adopted to insure ample water pressure being available in the higher level and to prevent excessive pressure occurring in the mains traversing the lower levels.

 146. The upper zone between the 600- and 450-foot contours is supplied with water from a reservoir constructed at a level of 700 feet above Ordnance Datum on the west side of the Peak Road.

 147. A 6-inch cast-iron main, reducing to 4 inches in the Peak Road, is laid from the Hydraulic Motor in Garden Road to the Peak Road reservoir through which the water is pumped by the motor, houses en route being supplied direct off this main.

 148. The next lower zone between the 450- and 300-foot contours is supplied with water from the reservoirs constructed south of the Belilios Terrace and Pokfulam Filter Beds, the former at a level of 500 feet and the latter at a level of 600 feet above Ordnance Datum and containing 112,000 and 105,000 gallons respectively.

 149. A cast-iron main varying in size from 6 to 4 inches in diameter is laid between these reservoirs along the Robinson and Richmond Roads from which branch pipes are laid in the several streets of this district.

 150. The water is pumped up into the above mentioned reservoirs by Hydraulic Motors erected in the Arbuthnot and Bonham Roads pumping stations.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25?? MARCH, 1893.

219

   151. The next or third zone between the 300- and 200-foot contours is supplied direct from the Albany and West Point service reservoirs. The eastern portion by a 14-inch main laid from the Albany reservoir along Upper Albert Road to Arbuthnot Road where it bifurcates, a 12-inch branch supplying the Arbuthnot Road Motor and a 6-inch branch traversing Caine Road. The western portion by a 12-inch main laid from the West Point service reservoir to Bonham Road Pumping Station where after supplying the motor it is reduced to 10 inches in diameter and traverses the Bonham Road ultimately connecting with the 6-inch main in Caine Road.

152. The remaining portion of the City or lowermost zone is supplied with water discharged from the exhausts of the Hydraulic Motors, that from Garden Road and Arbuthnot Road motors serving the eastern and central portions as far as Sutherland Street and that from the Bonham Road Motor the portion west of Sutherland Street, the principal mains being laid down Garden Road, Hollywood Road, Queen's Road, the Praya and Wing Lok Street, varying in size from 12 to 6 inches in diameter.

   153. The Hydraulic Motors installed in the Bonham Road and Arbuthnot Road Pumping Stations were supplied by Messrs. HATHORN DAVY & Co., of Leeds and London, and consist of two power cylinders and two differential pumps.

The principal dimensions are as follows:-

155. In all the machines the motion is horizontal. In those at Bonham Road and Arbuthnot Road each power cylinder and pump is complete in itself so that one half the machinery can be worked independently of the other half.

156. The levels of the Pumping Stations floors are respectively 162, 185, and 246 feet above Ordnance Datum.

   157. Back Pressure is maintained in the exhausts so as to give a maximum pressure in the dis- tributary mains equivalent to 250 feet head of water.

   158. When the Motors are required to work during the night and the consumption of water in the City is insufficient to reduce the pressure in the exhaust to the required limit the motors are allowed to exhaust into No. 2 Tank situated in the centre of the western and central districts at a level of 218 feet above Ordnance Datum; the water stored in this tank during the night is utilized for the supply of the City during the following day.

   159. Intimately connected with these works are those for the supply of water to the Hill District, a description of which will be found in my last annual report (Water and Drainage Department) dated 13th January, 1892.

160. The mains throughout the City have been divided into districts commanded by valves so as to facilitate the execution of repairs without causing the shutting off of the water over extensive areas. They have also been arranged so that water can be pumped into the Peak Road and Belilios service reservoirs by any one of the three Hydraulic Motors.

161. Four hundred and twenty-three Fire Hydrants have been fixed, the general rule followed being to fix one at the junction of every street and where these are more than 300 feet apart one in between. Their position is indicated on the walls opposite by the letters F.H. in white on black ground.

162. One hundred and eight Public Fountains of the Madras pattern, as manufactured by Messrs. STONE & Co., have been erected for supplying water to the occupiers of tenements who have no water laid on within their premises.

163. The annexed tabular statement (Appendix K.) gives-

(a) The details of the works included in Mr. CHADWICK's report dated the 28th of December,

1889, and the estimated cost.

(b) The works actually executed and their cost as estimated.

(c) The further works required probably in the near future to complete the scheme and their

cost as estimated by Mr. CHADWICK.

164. From this it will be seen that out of the 25 miles of mains which it was originally antici- pated would be required 22 miles nearly have been laid. The Morrison Hill and Kennedy Town reservoirs have not yet been built, as there appears to be no necessity at present to construct them.

220

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH MARCH, 1893.

 It will, however, doubtless in the near future be necessary to replace some of the old pipes which are now in use especially those along Caine Road, though on examination their condition did not appear at present to justify the cost of replacing them.

 165. The estimated cost of the works executed was $164,516.14 and the actual expenditure has been $164,023.66.

 166. Peak Water Supply.The works for the supply of water to the Hill District were completed in 1891. The expenditure under this heading of account has been incurred for the purpose of discharg- ing outstanding liabilities for works executed towards the end of the last year.

1891

 167. Sewerage Works, City of Victoria.-During the past year the Sewerage Works in Districts Nos. 4 W. and 5 W., Contracts TT and TT respectively, have been completed. The sewerage of these districts, a portion of which was completed in 1891, involved the construction of eleven miles of pipe-sewers ranging from 6 to 24 inches in diameter, at depths varying from 3 to 15 feet, provided with manholes, ventilators and flushing arrangements.

21

20

 168. In the month of November, Contracts Nos. T and were entered into with Mr. Foo SIK for the Sewerage of Districts Nos. 2 W. and 3 W., and Contract No. 29 with Mr. CHING LAI KEE for the Sewerage of District No. 1. W.

169. Under these contracts the following works have been executed, viz. :-

In District 2 W. the laying of one-third of a mile of pipe-sewers ranging from 9 to 12 inches

in diameter.

In District 3 W. the laying of about half a mile of pipe-sewers ranging from 9 to 12 inches

in diameter.

In District 1 W. the laying of about one-quarter of a mile of pipe-sewers ranging from 12 to 15 inches in diameter making in all nearly eleven miles of pipe-sewers ranging from 6 to 24 inches in diameter with manholes, ventilators and other necessary adjuncts completed during the past year.

 170. Four hundred and fifty gullies have been fixed in the High-Level District and Districts 1 W., 2 W., 3 W., 4 W., 5 W. and 6 W.

65

 171. Sewerage of Yau Ma Ti.-In February last a Contract No. 892 was entered into with Mr. Foo SIK for the construction of these works.

 The whole of the works including one and a third miles of pipe-sewers ranging from 12 to 6 inches in diameter provided with the necessary manholes, ventilators and flushing arrangements as well as the improvement of the out-falls of the storm-water drains have been completed.

 172. Water Supply, Kowloon Peninsula.-During the early part of last year the observations and surveys necessary for the preparation of a definite project for a public water-supply to British Kowloon were completed, and in June last I submitted a report (Sessional Paper No. 3) embodying the results of the observations and details of the proposed project.

are-

31 189

173. Miscellaneous Minor Works.-The only works under this heading calling for special notice

(a) The completion of the extension of the Victoria Gap out-fall. (b) The improvement of Taitam Telephone Line.

 174. The former work involved the laying of 1,300 lineal yards of 6-inch pipes connecting the Peak Sewerage System with that of District 6 W. The latter the substitution of iron poles for the old wooden ones and re-fixing 24 miles of telephone wire completing telephonic communication between the Garden Road Motor House and Taitam Reservoir.

SUPPLEMENTARY WORKS.

 175. Yau Ma Ti Praya Wall.-This work was completed by Mr. TSANG SAM, under Contract No. 1 in March last.

16

1991

 176. Erection of Gas Lamps in British Kowloon.-The establishment of Gas Works at Yau Ma Ti by the Hongkong and China Gas Company having rendered the adoption of gas for street lighting practicable, 78 gas lamps have been erected on the Praya, Tsim Sha Tsui, Robinson Road, MacDonnell Road, Chater Road, Garden Road, Kimberley Road, Elgin Road, Austin Road, and in Station Street, Third Street, Second Street, Temple Street, Reclamation Street, Battery Street, and Praya, Yau Ma Ti. These were lighted by gas on the 1st of November last.

 177. Repairs to St. John's Cathedral.-The works involved in the thorough repairs of St. John's Cathedral prior to its being handed over to the Church Trustees were-

(a) The re-construction of the greater portion of the roof. (b) Relaying the floors of the Nave, Aisle and Transepts. (c) Colour-washing the building internally and externally.

 178., The whole of these works were completed in November last without necessitating the temporary closing of the Cathedral.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH MARCH, 1893.

221

  179. Improved Signalling for Ships. After the completion of the Gap Rock Lighthouse and the telegraph cable it was considered advisable that ships approaching Hongkong from the South should be signalled from the Gap Rock and those approaching from the North, from Cape D'Aguilar. This necessitated the construction of telegraph clerks' quarters at the Gap Rock and Cape D'Aguilar also the fitting up of a telegraphic receiving room at the Post Office and the construction of a short telephone line from the Post Office to the Central Police Station.

These works were completed in September last.
