This StandardWork on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters of practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect in China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandariu 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 LanguageofChiun, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philo- logical 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 Furnames, will

be published and sold separately.

Visit to Sand Island, Pescadores, by H.M.S. "Porpoise."

 Her Majesty's Ship Porpoise arrived off the Western side of Sand Island on 31st December, 1893, at 7 A.M., a fresh breeze blowing at the time which made communication difficult.

 2. A working party in charge of an Officer was at once sent on shore with appliances for bring- ing off the "skid" which was left by H.M.S. Mercury, but nothing of the kind was to be found, although the whole island underwent the most careful search by the party who landed; it is presumed that Chinese fishermen must have broken it up and carried it away for firewood. Two Chinese fisher- men however were found living in a small hut on the island and though the skid was described to them they denied any knowledge of having seen it.

 3. I inspected the graves and found them all in good order and quite untouched by any maraud- ing Chinese or fisherman and nothing required doing to them excepting perhaps substantial crosses fixed over the grave mounds to make the respective places more prominent. The two fishermen. already alluded to explained, through an interpreter, that there was no fear of anyone molesting the graves or obelisk.

 4. I walked around every part of the island and saw nothing further of interest. The obelisk appears firmly planted on the top of the Northern hill and can be seen a long distance, in fact in clear weather it can be made out from the lighthouse, a distance of 10 miles, the keeper informing me he had often made it out.

The words on the obelisk are as follows:--

"Erected by the residents of Hongkong in memory of those who perished in the wreck of

"the S.S. Bokhara on the 10th October, 1892."

I was somewhat surprised to find that the names of the Europeans who were lost on this sad occasion were omitted.

5. Mr. B. WATKINS, Engineer of this ship, accompanied me on shore and various photographic views of the obelisk and scene of the disaster were taken, which will be duly forwarded when they are completed.

 6. I think we were fortunate in successfully landing. The Sampson was employed on the wreck of the Bokhara from October, 1892, to May, 1893, during which time she had only 16 working days, which shows how rare occasions are on which a landing on Sand, and neighbouring islands, can be effected during the N.E. monsoon, which wind prevails at the Pescadores 9 months out of the year.

7. There is nothing left to be seen of the Bokhara above water, but I am informed in calm weather the boilers and engines can be distinctly made out at the bottom in about eight fathoms. I went to look at the place where she was wrecked, but in consequence of the heavy surf could not get close enough to see for myself.

8. H.M.S. Porpoise, having performed the duties on which she was sent, left Sand Island on 31st December, 1893, at 9.30 A.M. and arrived at Hongkong on the 1st January, 1894.

Presentation to the Brigadier-General of the Pescadores.

On Her Majesty's Ship Porpoise anchoring in Makung Harbour, Pescadores Islands, which took place on the 28th December, 1893, at 11.30 A.M. I made an official call on Brigadier-General WANG, the Chinese Governor and General in command of the troops and forts in the Pescadores, and was received with due ceremony.

2. I informed him that I had come in compliance with instructions received from my Commander- in-Chief, Vice Admiral The Honourable Sir E. R. FREMANTLE, K.C.B., C.M.G., to thank him on behalf of Her Majesty the QUEEN and the British Government for his special exertions in assisting and succouring the survivors of the P. & O. S.S. Bokhara as well as in keeping guard over the wreck and graves, on that unfortunate occasion, adding that I had brought with me a presentation from Her Majesty the QUFEN, which had been forwarded from England to Her Minister in Peking, and that I would be glad to hand it to him on board H. M. S. Porpoise whenever it would be convenient for him to return my visit.

3. This Brigadier-General WANG did at 4.00 P.M. the same day and he was received on the Quarter- deck by all the Officers and Ship's Company, the Officers being in epaulettes and swords, the men being under arms.

4. As he arrived on board a salute of 13 guns was accorded him, at the same time the men under arms came to the present."

"

5. On handing the silver plate I informed General WANG that Admiral FREMANTLE had instructed me to convey his compliments, and to inform him that he had specially selected myself for this service in consequence of H. M. S. Porpoise being instrumental in bringing the survivors of the Bokhara to Hongkong, and added that it gave me great pleasure to be so selected and be present on such an occasion and assured the General that not only the British community in China was grateful for his humanity and kindness on the occasion of the loss of the Bokhara, but the British nation as a whole. He replied in a few suitable words and I feel quite sure was much gratified with his reception and gift.

6. The Quarter-deck on which the ceremony took place was appropriately decorated, and at its termination General WANG and his staff were entertained in the after cabin; 50 of his own people were on board witnessing the presentation, they all having come on board in a small Chinese Gunboat. 7. General WANG left the ship at 6.00 P.M., the same courtesies being accorded him on leaving as on arriving.

8. The fort very promptly returned both salutes.

9. I was fortunate arriving when I did as the General informed me that in three days' time he is leaving the Pescadores for Tamsui to take up a new appointment in Formosa, his relief at Lis present post having already arrived.

10. I decided that the ceremony should take place on board the Porpoise rather than on shore as being more suitable for such an occasion.

11. Before leaving the ship General WANG kindly asked myself and all the officers to dine with him at his official residence, and invitations were sent the following morning, the 29th instant, for the dinner to take place in the afternoon at 4.00 P.M. of the same day.

  12. As it was quite impossible to leave the port for the purpose of visiting Sand Island on account of a full gale of wind blowing, the invitations were accepted and the Chinese Gunboat came out and brought myself and four officers into the inner harbour.

13. Chairs were waiting at the landing place attended by an escort of 25 soldiers, and on our arrival at the Yamen to the time of our departure I witnessed the most interesting Chinese spectacle since I have been in China in connection with this presentation. The courts or yards of the Yamen and for some distance outside the building were lined with soldiers under arms, with their banners, &c., through which the chairs passed, the escort leading the way. The General in full uniform received us at the entrance of the audience room, at the same time the troops saluted and their band played as the usual three guns were fired, which announces an official call. We were shown to seats in the room-a very large one-being lined with soldiers under arms all around it. In the centre of the room a large cushion was placed, and in front of it, resting on a sort of dais was the silver salver, also on a cushion and surrounded with different sorts of silk stuff, the whole lit up by four large bronze candlesticks. When all was ready and everybody in their places, the room being quite full to the number of about 250 people, the General proceeded to the cushion and knelt down nine times making deep obeisance to the silver presentation in front of him, whilst the soldiers presented arins and the band played, amidst the sound of thousands of crackers being fired outside; it was explained to me that this is a very exceptional ceremony by an Official of his rank and only gone through on such rare occasions as the present, that is to say when an Official has been honoured with special notice by Royalty or some Foreign Government, and is precisely the same ceremony shown as if Royalty were

32

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 20TH JANUARY, 1894. -

really present. When the General had gone through his formalities, batches of nine, under mandarins, at a time presented themselves in line before him, knelt, and made their obeisance to him in the same manner, in recognition of the honour that has lately been shown the General. There were three or four lots that went through this ceremony. I was informed they consisted of Officers and Officials of the forts, &c. From the beginning to the end the effect was very striking. As darkness had come on the Hall in which we were was lit up with numerous large and curious coloured lamps, not the usual Chinese lanterns I have been accustomed to see. The ceremony being over, the soldiers, Officials and people disappeared immediately, leaving only the General with his Staff with ourselves, a large table was brought in and placed in the middle of the room, already laid for dinner which was served as soon as chairs were placed. The dinner was half foreign and half Chinese style, and very well done. Speeches were exchanged and duly explained by the interpreters who were present for this purpose. At 9.30 P.M. the dinner being concluded we took our leave of the General and were taken to the landing place in the chairs, the troops were under arms by torchlight and three guns were fired as we passed the gates of the Yamen. The same escort attended us back as on our arriving; evidently the early hour of 4.00 P.M. Hamed for dinner was to have time to enable us to witness the troops, &c. fallen in by daylight.

  14. I have perhaps gone rather unnecessarily into details with reference to the whole ceremonies, which have been gone through on both sides, but the occasion being an exceptional one I considered it called for exceptional description.

  15. There were two excellent interpreters, one furnished from the shore and one already on board the ship.

16. The letter for Brigadier-General WANG from the British Legation was duly delivered to him.

really present. When the General had gone through his formalities, batches of nine, under mandarins, at a time presented themselves in line before him, knelt, and made their obeisance to him in the same manner, in recognition of the honour that has lately been shown the General. There were three or four lots that went through this ceremony. I was informed they consisted of Officers and Officials of the forts, &c. From the beginning to the end the effect was very striking. As darkness had come on the Hall in which we were was lit up with numerous large and curious coloured lamps, not the usual Chinese lanterns I have been accustomed to see. The ceremony being over, the soldiers, Officials and people disappeared immediately, leaving only the General with his Staff with ourselves, a large table was brought in and placed in the middle of the room, already laid for dinner which was served as soon as chairs were placed. The dinner was half foreign and half Chinese style, and very well done. Speeches were exchanged and duly explained by the interpreters who were present for this purpose. At 9.30 P.M. the dinner being concluded we took our leave of the General and were taken to the landing place in the chairs, the troops were under arms by torchlight and three guns were fired as we passed the gates of the Yamen. The same escort attended us back as on our arriving; evidently the early hour of 4.00 P.M. Hamed for dinner was to have time to enable us to witness the troops, &c. fallen in by daylight.

  14. I have perhaps gone rather unnecessarily into details with reference to the whole ceremonies, which have been gone through on both sides, but the occasion being an exceptional one I considered it called for exceptional description.

  15. There were two excellent interpreters, one furnished from the shore and one already on board the ship.

16. The letter for Brigadier-General WANG from the British Legation was duly delivered to him.

This Standard Work on the "hinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters of practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect in China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philo- logical 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.

House Drains.--Surveyor's report on condition of drains at Nos. 11 and 12, Kwai Wa Lane; Nos. 33, 35 and 37 Hillier Street; Nos. 267 to 293 (odd Nos.), Queen's Road Central; Nos. 82 to 104 (even Nos.) Jervois Street; and No. 16, Cleverley Street-which had been circulated to Members and the minutes on the circulating cover read-was laid on the table.

A discussion ensued.

Mr. EDE seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

Mr. HUMPHREYS gave notice of his intention to move at the next meeting of the Board that the drainage bye-laws Nos. 29 and 30 be amended as follows:-

No. 29.

Wherever practic- able, the rain-water down-pipes on the street side of buildings, shall be carried under the footpath and discharge into the side channel.

NOTE.-It is most important that such pipes should be completely disconnected from the sewers so that they cannot by any possibility serve as conduits for conducting sewer air up and into the dwelling. No. 30. Waste-pipes from baths, sinks and other similar appliances, on the upper floors of buildings shall be of

cast-iron socketted pipes or wrought-iron welded-pipes with screwed joints coated with bituminous composition, or in the case of wrought-iron, galvanised; or of well glazed stone-ware socketted pipes, or of pipes of other materials and pattern approved by the Board, securely fixed outside the wall, and provided, at each point of connection with a suitable head, and at their lower extremity with a bend, shoe or pedestal pipe.

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET, 15th December, 1893.

 SIR,With reference to the Earl of Derby's Circular despatch of the 6th of March, 1883, I have the honour to transmit to you, for information and publication in the Colony under your Government, a copy of an Order of Her Majesty in Council modifying the provisions of the Order in Council of the 14th of February, 1883, in regard to the mode of estimating the net registered tonnage of Italian Ships.

I have the honour to be,

The Officer Administering the Government of

HONGKONG.

Sir,

Your most obedient, humble Servant,

AT THE COURT AT WINDSOR,

The 23rd day of November, 1893. PRESENT,

RIPON.

THE QUEEN'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

 Whereas by "The Merchant Shipping Act Amendment Act, 1862," it is enacted that whenever it is made to appear to Her Majesty that the rules concerning the measurement of tonnage of merchant ships for the time being in force under the Merchant Shipping Act, 1854, therein called the principal Act, have been adopted by the Government of any foreign country, and are in force in that country, it shall be lawful for Her Majesty by Order in Council to direct that the ships of such foreign country shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in their certificates of registry or other national papers, and thereupon it shall no longer be necessary for such ships to be re-measured in any port or place in Her Majesty's dominions, but such ships shall be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted on their certificates of registry or other papers in the same manner, to the same extent, and for the same purposes, in, to, and for which the tonnage denoted in the certificates of registry of British ships is to be deemed the tonnage of such ships:

 And whereas Her Majesty, by Order in Council dated the 30th day of September, 1873, was pleased to direct that merchant, sailing, and steam ships, belonging to the Kingdom of Italy, the measurement whereof had, after the first day of July one thousand eight hundred and seventy-three, been ascertained and denoted in the registers and other national papers of such ships testified by the dates thereof, should be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in their registers or other national papers, in the same manner, and to the same extent, and for the same purposes, in, to, and for which the tonnage denoted in the certificates of registry of British ships is deemed to be the tonnage of such ships; provided nevertheless, that if the owner or master of any Italian steamship should desire the deduction for engine-room in such ship to be estimated under the rules for engine-room measurement and deduction applicable to British ships instead of under the Italian rule, the engine room should be measured and the deduction calculated according to the British rules:

 And whereas Her Majesty by Order in Council dated the 14th day of February 1883, was pleased to declare that (the rules for engine room measurement and deduction applicable to the steamships of Italy, having been modified by Royal Decree of His Majesty the King of Italy, dated the 30th day of July 1882), the steamships of Italy, the certificates of Italian nationality and registry of which were dated on or after the 21st day of September 1882, should be deemed to be of the tonnage denoted in the said certificates of Italian nationality and registry.

 And whereas it has been made to appear to Her Majesty that it is expedient that certain additions. should be made to the provisions of the said last recited Order in Council in regard to the mode of estimating the net registered tonnage of Italian ships.

 NOW, THEREFORE, Her Majesty in virtue of the powers vested in Her by the said recited Acts, and by and with the advice of Her Privy Council, is further pleased to direct as follows, viz., that in the event of the net registered tonnage of Italian ships, estimated under the British rules, being denoted on their Certificates of Registry or other national papers, the same shall be deemed to be of the tonnage so denoted therein.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters of practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect in China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philo- loxical 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 of practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect in China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its us-fulness 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 philo- logical 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.

NATHANIEL JOSEPH EDE, Esquire.

The Acting Director of Public Works, (WILLIAM CHATHAM, Esquire).

The Colonial Surgeon, (Dr. PHILIP BERNARD CHENERY AYRES, C.M.G.).

Minutes.-The minutes of a meeting held on the 18th day of January, 1894, were read and confirmed. The Bucket System.--Mr. EDE gave notice of his intention to move at the next meeting of the Board-

That the suggestion numbered 2 in the Acting Superintendent's Report upon the Bucket System (dated 13th January, 1894), concerning the compulsory use throughout the city of buckets of a special pattern remain in abeyance for the present. Water Supply.-Mr. FRANCIS, not being present at the meeting, a motion of which he had given notice was not proceeded with.

   Shark Fins.-The report of the Committee appointed to enquire into the question of the nuisance alleged to arise from the practice of drying shark fins on the roofs of houses was laid on the table.

Dr. Ho KAI, Mr. HUMPHREYS and the Colonial Surgeon addressed the meeting. Dr. Ho KAI proposed and Mr. HUMPHREYS seconded the adoption of the report. Question-put and agreed to.

Drainage Pipes.-Mr. HUMPHREYS moved that drainage bye-laws Nos. 29 and 30 be amended as follows:-

No. 29. Down-pipes, conveying rain-water from roofs, shall be constructed of cast or welded wrought-iron, or of well glazed stone-ware pipes, or of pipes constructed of such material and pattern as may be approved by the Board, and when the down-pipe discharges into the house-drain it shall be completely disconnected therefrom, as described in bye-law No. 31, and fitted with a bend, shoe or pedestal pipe. Wherever practic- able, the rain-water down-pipes on the street side of buildings, shall be carried under the footpath and discharge into the side channel.

NOTE.-It is most important that such pipes should be completely disconnected from the sewers so that they cannot by any possibility serve as conduits for conducting sewer air up and into the dwelling.

No. 30. Waste-pipes from baths, sinks and other similar appliances, on the upper floors of buildings shall be of cast-iron socketted pipes or wrought-iron welded-pipes with screwed joints coated with bituminous composition, or in the case of wrought-iron, galvanised; or of well glazed stone-ware socketted pipes, or of pipes of these or of other materials and of other pattern approved by the Board, securely fixed outside the wall, and pro- vided, at each point of connection, with a suitable head, and at their lower extremity with a bend, shoe or pedestal pipe. All joints of stone-ware pipes to be made in the manner provided for in bye-law 5.

NOTE.-Zinc, tin-plate, rivetted or lap-jointed sheet-iron will not be approved.

Dr. Ho KAI seconded.

The Director of Public Works addressed the meeting and moved, as an amendment, that the bye-laws remain unaltered. The Captain Superintendent of Police seconded.

   On the motion of Dr. CANTLIE seconded by the Colonial Surgeon, it was agreed that the consideration of the question be adjourned to the next meeting of the Board.

   Mortality Returns.-The returns for the weeks ended the 20th and 27th January, 1894,-which had been circu- lated to Members-were laid on the table.

House Drains.-Surveyor's report on condition of drains running through Marine Lot No. 14, Praya Central- which had been circulated to Members and the minutes on the circulating cover read-was laid on the table.

Svakak

 That a copy of the Sanitary Surveyor's report be forwarded to Mr. Stephens for his information. The Captain Superintendent of Police seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

Flushing Drains.-A further letter from the Honourable the Colonial Secretary regarding flushing drains with sea water-which had been circulated to Members and the minutes on the circulating cover read-was laid on the table.

Mr. EDE moved,--

That a letter be sent to the Honourable the Colonial Secretary stating that the Board did not think that any good result would ensue from the attempt to flush the drains with sea water-an experiment that had been twice unsuccessfully attempted in past years.

The Director of Public Works seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters of practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect in China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philo- logical 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 following Finding of the Marine Court of Inquiry into the collision of the British Steam-ship Hangchow, Official No. 91,878 of London, and an unknown vessel, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 23rd February, 1894.

FINDING.

G. T. M. OBRIEN,

Colonial Secretary.

  We find that the British Steam-ship Hangchow, Gfficial No. 91,878 of London, of which CHARLES JAMES DERBY was Master, the number of whose Certificate of Competency is 08,040, left Hongkong in ballast bound for Shanghai on the morning of the 8th February.

That all went well till about 11 P.M. when off Breaker Point the Hangchow was in collision with

an unknown vessel.

t

  It appears from the evidence that the mast-head light of the unknown vessel was first sighted by the Second Officer about a point on the port bow and he after watching it for some little time concluded that the vessel carrying it was closing him and he therefore ported about a point. About five minutes after this he saw the three lights of the approaching vessel about half a point on his port bow and not more than two ship's lengths off, he then ordered the helm hard aport and reversed the engines going down himself at that time to call the Captain. About a minute from the time of his reversing the engines the collision took place, the Hangchow striking the stranger a slanting blow about amidships on the starboard side.

  There being no evidence from the other side the Court do not concern themselves with expressing an opinion as to the causes which led to the collision, merely observing that the action of the Second Officer in porting on the first occasion probably did not increase the danger of the position.

  After the collision the vessels cleared each other and the position of each relative to the other after this would be problematical except for the evidence of the Captain-for the only two certificated officers carried were busily engaged in seeing the Captain's orders with reference to the management of the Hangchow carried out and had no time to observe the movements of the other vessel;-but it seems that the two did not separate far, probably not more than four or five ship's lengths, a blue- light was shown by the stranger and answered by the Hangchow, but how these were understood is not clear.

  The stranger's red light was afterwards seen by the Captain of the Hangchow only and that dis- appeared on the starboard bow about 15 minutes after the collision.

  The Hangchow steamed slowly ahead until about 1.30 A.M. when after a consultation with his officers the Captain decided to put back to Hongkong for repairs.

The damage sustained by the Hangchow is described in a letter (put in marked A) from the Superintendent of the Dock to the Captain and was confined to a broken stem and a hole between the 16 and the 20-foot draught line extending about 5 feet inwards, there was little or no damage above

this.

  This damage, we are of opinion, might have been caused by collision with a deeply laden ship and as such a ship the S.S. St. Asaph bound from Moji to Hongkong was at or about this spot when the collision took place, and as she has not been heard of since, the conclusion is forced on the Court that she was the other vessel that was in collision, and it would appear that if so the same has proved fatal to her.

  We are of opinion that the Master of the Hangchow fully recognized the duty of "standing by" after the collision as long as the safety of his own vessel and the lives on board were not unduly endangered thereby, also that the steps taken by him were all taken with this end in view; but while recognizing the danger to the Hangchow, we regret that the Master should have decided to leave the scene of the disaster without even more strenuous efforts being made to discover what had become of the other vessel.

  The Court do not deal with the Certificates of the Master or Officers and they are therefore returned to them.

Given under our hands at Hongkong this 19th day of February, 1894.

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

Minutes.-The minutes of a meeting held on the 1st day of February, 1894, were read and confirmed. The Bucket System.-Mr. EDE moved,-

That the suggestion numbered 2 in the Acting Superintendent's Report upon the Bucket System (dated 18th January, 1894), concerning the compulsory use throughout the city of buckets of a special pattern remain in abeyance for the present; and that the Superintendent endeavour to obtain some superior pattern or patterns of bucket and that he submit to the Board some scheme for gradually introducing and bringing it into general

use.

Mr. HUMPHREYS seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

Drainage Pipes.-The consideration of Mr. HUMPHREYS' motion that drainage bye-laws Nos. 29 and 30 be amended as follows was resumed.

No. 29. Down-pipes, conveying rain-water from roofs, shall be constructed of cast or welded wrought-iron, or of

well glazed stone-ware pipes, or of pipes constructed of such material and pattern as may be approved by the Board, and when the down-pipe discharges into the house-drain it shall be completely disconnected therefrom, as described in bye-law No. 31, and fitted with a bend, shoe or pedestal pipe. Wherever practic- able, the rain-water down-pipes on the street side of buildings, shall be carried under the footpath and discharge into the side channel.

NOTE.-It is most important that such pipes should be completely disconnected from the sewers so that they cannot by any possibility serve as conduits for conducting sewer air up and into the dwelling.

No. 30. Waste-pipes from baths, sinks and other similar appliances, on the upper floors of buildings shall be of cast-iron socketted pipes or wrought-iron welded-pipes with screwed joints coated with bituminous composition, or in the case of wrought-iron, galvanised; or of well glazed stone-ware socketted pipes, or of pipes of these or of other materials and of other pattern approved by the Board, securely fixed outside the wall, and pro- vided, at each point of connection, with a suitable head, and at their lower extremity with a bend, shoe or pedestal pipe. All joints of stone-ware pipes to be made in the manner provided for in bye-law 5.

NOTE.-Zinc, tin-plate, rivetted or lap-jointed sheet-iron will not be approved.

Mr. FRANCIS suggested that the following interpolations be made in the proposed amended bye-law No. 29, viz., the words "

as may be equally efficient" after the words "material and pattern" and the words "from time to time" after the words

as may be."

The motion as amended was moved by Mr. HUMPHREYS and seconded by Mr. FRANCIS.

A discussion ensued.

   The following Bills, which were read a first time at a Meeting of the Legislative Council held this day, are published.

Council Chamber, Hongkong, 7th March, 1894.

ARATHOON SETH, Clerk of Councils.

A BILL

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to amend "The Po Leung Kuk

BE

Incorporation Ordinance, 1893."

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

1. This Ordinance shall be read and construed together with Ordinance No. 10 of 1893, hereinafter referred to as "the principal Ordinance."

2. Sections 6, 9 and 19 of the principal Ordinance are hereby repealed.

3. In lieu of section 6, of the principal Ordinance, the words following shall be substituted :-

The Board of Direction shall, subject to the pro- visions of this Ordinance, have full power and authority to govern, direct and decide all matters whatsoever connected with the administration of the affairs of the Society and the accomplishment of the objects and purposes thereof, subject to an appeal to the Governor, as hereinafter provided, and may at discretion depute, by Regulations or otherwise, a portion or the whole of its power and authority to the Elected Committee. 4. In lieu of section 9, of the principal Ordinance, the words following shall be substituted:

All questions which may arise at any meeting of the Board of Direction shall be decided by a majority of votes, and in case of an equality of votes the Pre- sident shall have a casting vote in addition to his original vote. Provided that, in any case in which the Board is divided in opinion, the President or any two members of the Board may demand that the point be referred to the Governor for his decision, which shall, in every such case, be final.

5. In lieu of section 19, of the principal Ordinance, the words following shall be substituted :-

It shall be lawful for the Governor, in his discretion, to direct that the services of certain subordinate Officers and Constables of the Police Force and of certain District Watchmen shall be placed at the dis- posal of the Society on such terms and under such conditions as His Excellency may sanction. Such Officers, Constables and District Watchmen shall regularly report their proceedings to the Captain Superintendent of Police.

Construction.

Repeal.

Substituted section 6.

Substituted section 9.

Substituted section 19.

Reasons.

Sections 3 and 4 amend sections 6 and 9 of The Po Leung Kuk Incorporation Ordinance, 1893, by providing for an appeal to the Governor in cases where the Board of Direction is divided in opinion.

Section 5 requires the officers whose services are placed by the Governor at the disposal of the Society to regularly report their proceedings to the Captain Superintendent of Police.

The provision for appeal will secure some measure of control on the part of the Government over the decisions of the Board in cases of difficulty, should differences arise; while the requirement as to reporting should conduce to co-operation between the Police and the Society and enable the Chief of the Police to know exactly what is being done by the officers of the Society.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

Repeal of part of Section 28 of Ordinance 14 of 1873.

Amendment of section 29 of Ordinance 14 of 1873.

A BILL

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to amend "The Supreme Court Summary Jurisdiction Ordinance, 1873."

BE

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

1. The words "or of its own motion" and the words "but save as aforesaid, all the provisions of the law in "force in the Colony for the time being relating to Juries "in the Supreme Court, except so far as the same may "provide for the remuneration of Special Jurors shall "apply to juries of three persons empanelled under this "Ordinance" in Section 28 of Ordinance 14 of 1873, are hereby repealed.

2. The words "Witnesses and Special Jurors" in Section 29 of Ordinance 14 of 1873 are hereby repealed, and, in lieu thereof, the words " and witnesses" shall be inserted after the word "parties," in such Section.

Reasons.

It is thought undesirable that the power of the Court, sitting in Summary Jurisdiction, to summon a jury "of its own motion," when neither party applies for such jury, should be continued. It is, moreover, considered desirable that the remuneration of Special Jurors fixed by Section 29 of The Jury Consolidation Ordinance, 1887, should be the same in Civil cases in the Supreme Court whether the Court is exercising its Summary Jurisdiction or otherwise.

Whenever it shall be requisite to summon a common jury, a Deputy Registrar shall, in the presence of the Registrar, open and draw from the appropriate Ballot Box eighteen names in civil cases, and thirty names in criminal cases, to form a panel, and whenever from any cause the jurors drawn cannot be served, it shall be lawful for a Deputy Registrar to re-open the Ballot Box, and in manner aforesaid draw fresh names there- from as often as may be necessary to secure the full number of jurors required to be drawn. The cards with the names of those who do not actually serve and are not dead or permanently absent or incapacitated shall be returned to the Ballot Box and the cards with the names of those who actually serve shall be locked up in a separate Box until all the names in the Ballot Box are exhausted by subsequent panels, when they shall be returned to the Ballot Box if required for the purposes of the current year.

In the event of any of the jurors dissenting from the residue, the jury shall retire to consider their verdict and, after reasonable consultation, the verdict in civil cases of a majority and in criminal cases of a majority consisting of not less than five jurors shall be held and deemed to all intents and purposes to be the verdict of the jury. Provided always, that if any person be arraigned for any offence visited by the law with capital punishment, then and in such case the jury must be unanimous in their verdict of guilty or not guilty; but if a majority consisting of not less than five jurors as aforesaid should find such person guilty of a less crime than the capital one, then the finding of such majority shall be the verdict, and sentence shall follow accordingly: and if in any case it may, for any cause, seem to be desirable to the Judge, he may direct the jury to further consider their verdict.

5. In lieu of section 23 of the principal Ordinance, the following words shall be substituted :-

In the event of the death, illness, or default of attendance of any one or two of the jurors during the trial of any suit, action, or information, it shall be lawful for the Court, in its discretion to order the trial of such suit, action, or information, to be proceeded with in like manner as if the full number of jurors had continued to serve on the jury, and any verdict returned by the remaining jurors, or in civil cases by a majority or in criminal cases by a majority consisting of not less than five remaining jurors shall be of equal validity and have the same force and effect as if it had been returned by a jury consisting of the full number of seven jurors. Provided always, that in criminal cases where the offence charged is visited by the law with capital punishment the jury shall not consist of less than seven men. Provided also that it shall be lawful for the Court, instead of proceeding with the trial with the remaining jurors, to cause a new jury to be empanelled, sworn and, if necessary, charged with any prisoner or accused; and the suit, action, or infor- mation shall be tried as if such first jury had not been empanelled.

6. Whenever it may be necessary to summon a jury in the Summary Jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, the num- ber drawn to form a panel shall be six. Subject as afore- said, the provisions of this and the principal Ordinance so far as the same are applicable shall apply to such juries.

cases.

Reasons.

By The Jury Consolidation Ordinance, 1887, a distinc- tion was made between Civil and Criminal Cases. Actual Service was required in Civil cases to exempt jurors, who were summoned, from further service during the current year until all the other names in the Ballot Box had been exhausted; whereas, in Criminal Cases, summons without actual service procured such exemption. It followed that some jurors might have to serve two or three times in a year, while others, although summoned, were not called upon to serve at all. Section 3 abolishes this distinction with a view of preventing such inequalities.

Sections 4 and 5 require, in Criminal Cases, the assent of not less than five jurors to the verdict. Hitherto, a majority of four to three could return a binding verdict not only in Civil but in Criminal Cases also. This change is thought desirable in Criminal cases. In capital cases, however, a unanimous verdict is still required.

Section 6 supplies the omission of previous Ordinances to specify the number of jurors to be drawn to form a panel where the jury consists of three, in cases within the Supreme Court's Summary Jurisdiction.

SIR, I have the honour to forward the annual report on Victoria College for the

 1. The total number on the College Roll for the year was 1,012. The fact that Chinese New Year fell so late accounts for the small minimum monthly enrolment, as it is difficult to induce parents to keep their sons at school after their examination is over; so that the January attendance, which is the usual minimum, was further reduced in February. If it had not been for a noticeable falling-off in the latter half of the year, there would have been a much higher average daily attendance, and a considerable increase in fees.

 3. REMARKS ON PRECEDING TABLES.-We observe that the number of school-days is pretty uniformly maintained; that the number of school-boys examined is, roughly speaking, two-thirds of the total number on the Roll for the year; and that a high percentage of passes is annually sustained. The average daily attendances were proportionately better in the smaller school (73 per cent.), as might reasonably be expected; it would require an improvement of 5 per cent. in the attendance (68 per cent.) of the boys now on the Roll to equal the former average. The steady increase in fees year by year is very apparent, and the increase is out of all proportion to the corresponding increase in the number of boys on the Roll, for while the latter is barely doubled, the amount of fees is far on the way towards being trebled. In estimating the average expense of each scholar, though the present figure appears high, and only finds a parallel nine years ago, in 1885, we must not fail to remember that if Victoria College had not been built, the recent general increase of salary throughout the Service would have affected the Central School by an annual amount of $5,158, so that in 1888, the last

complete year at the Central School, we find that for purposes of comparison with the present rate of expenditure, instead of $26.48 per head, we must take $37.56 which is evidence that Victoria College costs per head less than the Central School; and further that the actual net expenditure of 1888 would have been $17,642.54, thus showing only $3,762.92 as the increased annual cost of the larger building, with its doubled staff.

Thus the admissions since the opening of the new building, in July 1889, are more than double the highest figure attained at the Central School, which satisfactorily attests the need of the larger accommodation provided by the Government; even though there is no immediate prospect of the occupation of every seat.

5. EFFECT ON THE COLLEGE OF COLONIAL DEPRESSION.-Last year a pessimist letter signed "Never" appeared in one of the local papers in which was foretold with some acrimony the steady downfal of this Colony. "Ever" replied in an optimist strain exuberantly prophesying a magnificent future. Now, are we to suppose that a pre-eminently practical race like the Chinese are unaffected by their own impressions of the outlook of trade and of prospects of demand for employment? It would be exaggeration to suppose that even one-tenth of the Chinese boys who attend this College do so with the object, pure and simple, of acquiring an English education per se; ie., for the mental enlargement and other advantages to be derived from it. Before he can talk English plainly on any other subject, a boy at the bottom of the school will tell you, that his aim is to get dollars, to raise his market value. There is nothing poetic in this aspiration, which cannot be compared with the enthusiastic love of classical study occasionally to be met with among school-boys in England; but it clearly shows the motive power. The deduction is evident. If there is not a steady annually increasing demand for English-speaking clerks, if new hongs, factories, and enterprises of all sorts do not arise; we must not be surprised at a stagnation, nor even at an ebb, in the influx of Chinese pupils. There will be no cause for anxiety until the average daily attendance fall below 653, which is the proportion to be expected from the 700 seats estimated as the necessary accommodation in the new building.

6. SUPPLY FROM GOVERNMENT DISTRICT SCHOOLS.-There is, however, one source of supply which does not appear to satisfy anticipation. I refer to the Government Anglo-Chinese Schools, the total Roll of which in 1892 was 539 while not more than 30 of their boys sought admission to Victoria College. As the total number in 1888 was 426, the increase of 100 in four years shows that these schools have no difficulty in obtaining scholars. Nor is this a matter for surprise when it is remembered that boys in our Lower and Preparatory Schools pay a dollar a month for an elementary English education which in these schools is provided free. The Inspector of Schools has, during the last two years, assured the Government that the majority of these boys are well able to pay the fees charged in the respective classes of Victoria College. The continued annual admission of four scholars from these schools, after competitive examination, to three years' free education at Victoria College, was one of the four questions of Financial Reform discussed in 1892 by the Registrar General, the Inspector of Schools, and myself. For the first time in ten years, no candidates presented themselves in 1893, and we are driven to the conclusion that there is no boy in these schools unable to pay the fees charged here. If this be so, what is to prevent 100 or even 150 boys being annually drafted from these five schools to Victoria College, and the seats thus vacated being occupied by others anxious to obtain free English elementary education? By the present system parents, who are reported to be capable of paying fees, keep their sons for four or five years at a Government Free School, and only send them to Victoria College to complete their education. This seems to be an abuse of the charitable object of the Government in establishing free schools.

P

7. PROMOTION. Of the 72 Chinese boys forming Classes IA, and IB, on 11th March, 1893, I find from the College Register that 35 per cent. or 25 boys had not exceeded five years in progressing from Class VIII. where they learned the Alphabet, to Class I., where Shakespeare and the higher subjects are taught; but again 13 of these boys took only four years, and two others actually only three years to perform the same feat. The boys themselves deserve great praise for their steady application, but the chief interest in the fact recorded is the incidental evidence it affords to the excellence of the teaching in the Lower and Preparatory Schools, without which foundation, boys so rapidly promoted would have found it impossible to pursue their studies so successfully in the Upper School. There are on the other hand manifest objections to such rapid promotion. Theoretically each boy should

120

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

spend a year in each of the seven sections, in order that the instruction he receives may be properly graduated and matured. There is no objection to clever boys being promoted after half a year's study in the lowest classes; but unfortunately, as I have had occasion to remark more than once before, the classes generally have for the last few years suffered from forced promotions. This is partly due to the transfer from the Central School, explained in the next paragraph, but also largely attributable to the number of boys who leave and are admitted every year. The only cure for the latter evil would appear to be the increased prosperity of the Colony. I need hardly point out that promotions in the Upper School are only made at the beginning of each school

year.

 8. EFFECT OF TRANSFER FROM THE CENTRAL SCHOOL.-I suppose it will occur to but few people to enquire by what steps a school of 556 boys in 1883 developed in 1891 into a college of 1,108. To most it will appear as a sum in simple addition, or perhaps multiplication; but in reality the change was attended with many difficulties. In 1888 the number of the sections forming the Upper School was doubled, as I foresaw that the increased accommodation in this part of the new building would not be supplied by outside demand. After allowing a breathing space of four years, an extra section was added in 1892, another in 1893, and the remaining section will be formed next month, when the scheme devised seven years ago will be complete, and the nine class-rooms on the upper floor will constitute the Upper School. In the year 1882, the number of boys examined in the Upper School was 83 as against 190 just examined. During the last five years there has been an average of nine boys admitted annually to the Upper School from outside the College; the real increase is thus due to internal expansion. It should now be apparent that a continuous strain has been thrown on the whole establishment, by the transfer from the Central School. The strain was heaviest in 1888 and 1889, but it still reveals itself; and it will be a matter of gratification to the masters to know that there is only one more year of sustained extraordinary effort. From March 1895, we shall settle down into a more normal condition, the stage of what we may call corporal growth will be in the past, and we may hope to reap some of the benefits attendant on maturity.

 9. EFFECT OF INCREASE OF UPPER SCHOOL.-I anticipate several advantages from this realisation. of my day-dream; 1o, an increase in revenue from higher fees; 2°, a gradual filling up of vacant seats in the Upper School, which in two or three years should be attended by a further increase in revenue; 3°, a more normal rate of promotion throughout the College in 1895 and henceforth, as referred to in the preceding paragraph; 4°, a steady elevation in the tone of the work, by the removal of this strain; 5°, an improved attendance in the Lower School; for it is to be expected that as there will be only 528 seats available for this part of the College, instead of 660 (as in 1890) boys will be more careful to retain their places as was the case in the limited accommodation of the Central School; 6°, the gradual extinction of the Preparatory School, for we ought soon to be able to require some previous knowledge of English on admission; 7°, an improvement in the results of the Chinese School, for the present ground of complaint, that the classes are unwieldy, will be in part removed by their considerable reduction.

R

10. EFFECT OF OPENING VICTORIA COLLEGE UPON OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE COLONY.-It has been stated that Victoria College has unduly withdrawn non-Chinese boys from other schools in the Colony. I am happy to say that there is no evidence to support this conjecture, which naturally arose from the total increase of attendance in the present large building. The following table compares the attendances of non-Chinese boys at four schools of the Colony in the years 1888 (being the last year available for statistics at the Central School) and 1892. The figures are taken, as regards this place, from the School Roll, and as regards the other three schools from the reports of the Inspector of Schools. (Note.-Only half the number of the Diocesan boys is given, as the other half, roughly speaking, are in Chinese dress.)

The total non-Chinese attendance at these schools has increased 33 per cent.; but at Victoria College only 25 per cent.; while the Chinese attendance at Victoria College has risen 75 per cent. from 549 in 1888 to 955 in 1892. Thus the increase in numbers of our non-Chinese boys is

                                                   very far from being equal in proportion to the increase observable amongst our Chinese scholars; and is actually even less than the average increase of demand on education from the non-Chinese sections of the Colonial community.

11. NAME OF THE COLLEGE.--There are no less than five schools in the Colony with the common designation of Victoria, viz., Victoria Portuguese School, Victoria English School (boys), Victoria

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

121

English School (girls), Victoria Home and Orphanage, and Victoria College. The first object in selecting a name for a school should be that it would be distinctive; for this purpose I recommend that this College should be re-christened Queen's (or Royal) College, names already chosen for Government Colleges in many other colonies. As a special reason for preferring the title Queen's .College, I would refer to the remarks made by Sir GEORGE BOWEN, when he announced that his recommendation that the new building should be called Victoria College had been graciously approved by Her Majesty. The special ground for his recommendation was that the occupation of the College occurred just after the Queen's Jubilee, and that the name given would commemorate that event. My contention is that the present title fails to suggest such an allusion, both because at that time several schools were already known as Victoria Schools, and because Victoria being the name of the city has lost its significant force in connection with the Jubilee.

    12. THE STAFF.-Several masters have been incapacitated by sickness, for various periods, varying from six days to as many weeks. Mr. DEALY returned from England on 1st May. Mr. MACHELL was confirmed, at the end of twelve months' probation, in his appointment as Assistant Master, by the Secretary of State. During the last two years several changes have taken place among the Chinese Assistants. Mr. Lo KIT resigned on account of ill-health; Messrs. CHEUNG TSOI, LO CHEUNG-SHIU, WONG FAN, and CHAN KAM-TO were transferred to other departments at higher salaries; and Mr. SHAM CHAU- FAT was dimissed. Two of these six changes were unavoidable, but the remaining four are attributed to insufficient salary. We have thus lost four excellent masters, with specially good attainments in English, who had five or six years' experience in teaching. It will take three or four years for their successors to approach their standard of qualification, if indeed they too are not transferred in the course of a couple of years. It is gratifying to know that our Chinese Assistants are appreciated as interpreters and clerks in other Departments; but it might well be asked if some system could not be devised which should secure the more lengthened services of these Chinese masters in the work for which they are specially trained. The First and Second Chinese Assistants have respectively $100 and $68 a month; then come four seniors at $40 and four juniors at $25 a month. Many boys on leaving the first class receive $20 and $30 a month immediately; while these Assistants remain at the same salary and see their juniors in enjoyment of larger emoluments elsewhere; the natural consequence is that they are on the look-out for other employment. Some increment (say $60 a year biennially, till a maximum of $600 instead of $480 per annum were attained) might act as an induce- men't to them to remain longer in the service of education. The slight extra expense would be more than compensated by the increased efficiency of the Chinese section of the staff, resulting from an improved permanence in tenure of office.

    13. OXFORD LOCAL EXAMINATIONS.This year seven Seniors and seven Juniors passed; the largest number hitherto being three Seniors and five Juniors in 1889. We sent in altogether 29 fees, but five boys did not present themselves for examination, three having obtained situations, and two being ill. Fourteen passes out of twenty-four is by no means unsatisfactory. As regards the Chinese, eight passes out of nine is a highly creditable record. The failures amongst the non-Chinese are due to the general weakness of the class and emphasise the necessity there was for the formation of a special class for their improvement. The Head of any School can, by the payment of one shilling for each candidate, obtain from Oxford detailed particulars of his own boys' work. Thus, I am able to report that OBADIAH obtained the mark "Good" in Shakespeare, HANCE and E. DANENBERG in Grammar, U HANG-KAM in Arithmetic, Algebra, and Euclid, and CHAN YAM-MING in Arithmetic and Algebra. It must be understood that the mark "Good" is next in order to "Distinguished," and that the Distinction list in Shakespeare and Mathematics is remarkably select. Altogether I am of opinion that the results should encourage the boys to further efforts, and should be a lesson to the non-Chinese boys of the great need they have of more steady application.

    14. THE HALF-YEARLY EXAMINATION.-In July 1882 I instituted a half-yearly examination, to see that the work of the previous half had been fairly prosecuted, and to prevent masters and boys leaving the bulk of the year's work to be acquired in the latter half. I have found this practice most beneficial; both masters and scholars have been pleased to have their weak subjects discovered and pointed out for particular attention in the ensuing term. Many a boy, too, on leaving school between September and the close of the year has been gratified by having the higher results of the Midsummer Examination recorded on his certificate instead of his position in January. In 1893, however, the Half-yearly Examination was not held, as the Inspector of Schools objected to the Head Master's holding any examination of the College in the same term with his annual inspection. The injury thus done to the year's work is incalculable; and the enforced ignorance of the Head Master as to the condition of the College under his charge at the opening of Michaelmas Term is a serious hindrance to efficiency. It is therefore to be hoped that the Half-yearly Examination will not be permanently discontined.

    15. RECREATION.-The report on the boys' sports, supplied by Mr. MACHELL, is full of interest, especially as regards cricket; for it appears that in several of the matches some four or five masters, and occasionally a few gentlemen outside the College, took an active part. There has been no observ- able advance made in drill. Sergeant BLAND, whose strict discipline combined with considerable tact in making the exercise less obnoxious to the Chinese, produced such excellent results last year, left us

;

122

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

in June on account of ill-health; and his regimental duties have since prevented his return. Half a dozen different instructors were in charge of physical drill during the latter half-year. From personal observation, I cannot say that I am hopeful of the success to be expected from the appointment of a private to this duty. A Public School Cadet Corps was formed at the suggestion of the Inspector of Schools; but as it, very naturally and properly, is confined to boys in non-Chinese dress, the desir- ability of forming a Chinese Cadet Corps, with simple uniform, white gaiters and red sashes, might hereafter be considered. Some of our Chinese masters would, with a little training, make excellent officers; and the desire to qualify for admission might excite a deeper interest in the physical exercises. 16. ANNUAL EXAMINATION.--The total number examined was 625, of whom 583 or 93 per cent. passed. Though the percentage is lower than last year, there is no evidence of inferiority, either of teaching or of work, which are both fully up to the average. The three sections of the College are thus represented:-

 A trite saying may be none the less true, therefore, I can only repeat, what it has been my good fortune to be able honestly to report year after year, that the whole staff, English and Chinese, deserves the highest praise for the results of the past year. I have found abundant evidence of excellent tuition in every class; and after careful enquiry have discovered that in those classes, (e.g. IV.B. VI.A.) where the number of failures at first sight appears appalling, the explanation is, either the boys have been naturally dull, or by an unfortunate concatenation of circumstances the dregs of certain classes have settled as a sediment in one class. I desire also to draw attention to those cases, chiefly in the larger sections of classes, where by careful attention to the lazy and dull boys at the bottom of the class, several failures have been creditably averted. The outlook for next year, especially as regards the Upper School, is most promising; and there is every ground for expressing confidently the expecta- tion that if the present rate of improvement continue, the reputation of the College will be considerably enhanced in the next few years.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

18. REMARKS ON INDIVIDUAL SUBJECTS.

 Reading Maintains its high standard. It is to be noted that more attention has been paid in the Upper School to phrasing and punctuation.

 Colloquial.-A much severer standard was exacted; but masters and boys had fully prepared themselves. The result was most encouraging. What pleased me most was the evident desire of each boy to exhibit himself to the best advantage; there was absolutely none of the sulky indifference with which the new subject was too often treated last year.

 Dictation.-Slightly lower percentage, chiefly owing to the failure in I.A.B. to write a rather difficult passage.

Otherwise the work was fully up to the average.

Composition.-Very satisfactory, not inferior to the excellent standard of the preceding year. Grammar.-Considerable improvement, especially in the Upper School; with the exception of V.B. the work in the Lower School is accountable for the depression of total percentages in this subject. History. Generally worthy of high praise; the-poor work in I.B.c. mars the general effect. Arithmetic.-Though the percentage figure is only slightly larger, the work is of a much higher order; I.A., II.B., III.B., V.A., VIII.A., being most successful.

 Algebra.-Very good indeed in Classes II., III., but the papers of the three sections of the First Class were most disheartening.

 Euclid. Generally very good, with the exception of I.c. where out of 21 boys, 14 failed to write a single proposition correctly.

 Geography. Here again, if it had not been for the work in the First Class, I should have been able to report considerable advance.

 Shakespeare. The percentage 74 against 57 in 1892 is in itself gratifying, but it is more so to note the marked increase in intelligence in coping with the questions.

 Translation from Chinese. The creditable and successful attempt in the Upper School by the boys to make independent translations, instead of reproducing the master's translation, word for word, deserves to be chronicled.

 Translation into Chinese.-Very good. Here we have the best test as to whether the boys have grasped the meaning of their Reading Lessons; and as usual there is good evidence that such is the

case.

 Latin. I regret that I can observe but little difference from the poor standard reported a year ago. There was a slight improvement in III.c., but the boys in I.c. on the completion of a second year's course betrayed, with two or three bright exceptions, the grossest ignorance of the most elementary knowledge, even of the use of case.

Book-keeping. Steady improvement; though the percentage is not so high, the tone of work is

better.

General Intelligence.-Manifest improvement.

 Chemistry.-Messrs. JAMESON and MACHELL report considerable advance in Practical Work, and two very good papers on stiff Theoretical.

Drawing.-Freehand, Excellent. Model, Fair.

 Trigonometry-One boy did a very good second year's paper, another a creditable first year's paper, the third knew nothing about it.

 19. NON-CHINESE CLASSES.-The experience of the past year still impresses me with the great need of the separation of the senior non-Chinese boys, if any real education is to be imparted to them in this College. I fully sympathise with the English masters, whose lot it is to be in charge of these two classes; as it cannot be doubted that with less exertion their labours would be attended with more brilliant results were they in charge of Chinese classes. The results in I.c. are of a most disappointing character; about half of the papers might have been burnt unread, with little injustice to the writers. A firmer hand, and more organised Home-work, should secure better results in the next twelve months.

 20. CHINESE SCHOOL.-The five native teachers who, as usual, held this examination report a steady improvement, especially in the answers to the questions on Literature; but at the same time they have drawn my attention to the absolute want of knowledge of the Chinese language among several of the newly admitted boys, whom they propose to relegate to the Anglo-Chinese Classes.

 21. PUPIL TEACHERS AND MONITORS.-Of the seven reported under this head last January, only two remain, and they have acquitted themselves very well both in the Practical and Theoretical Tests. The new Monitors have only had time to learn their duties before the class.

 22. CONCLUSION.-Had I been told in January 1882, that in eleven years' time, two Chinese Assistants would be qualified to take independent charge of two sections of the Upper School, I should have thought the prophet very sanguine. However, the fact remains that in 1893 Messrs. LUK and WAN taught Classes III. A and B, in their entire course, including English Grammar, History, Composition, Geography, Algebra, and Euclid; and the total percentage obtained respectively is 93

and 100. The intelligence displayed in the answers of the boys and the neatness of the work have excited my astonishment and admiration. I have been so impressed by their success, and by the excellence of the tuition of several other Chinese Assistants, that the conviction has gradually dawned upon me in the last few weeks that the time has come when the Government might by degrees reduce the strength of the English portion of the staff. Here we have two Chinese actually doing admirably the work hitherto considered the monopoly of Englishmen. It is only reasonable that they should expect a higher rate of remuneration for the increased value of their services, which has been attained by steady application and study. The gradual substitution of a First Class rank of Chinese Assistants for two or three English Assistant Masters would not only provide funds for the increase of salaries to secure their retention in the cause of education, mentioned above in paragraph 12; but without diminishing the efficiency of the College would, in course of time, effect considerable retrenchment in expenditure.

I have the honour to be,

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.--No. 78.

The following Report of the Captain Superintendent of Police for 1893, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 7th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 8th March, 1894.

G. T. M. OBRIEN,

Colonial Secretary.

No. 34.

POLICE OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 23rd January, 1894.

SIR, I have the honour to submit, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the Criminal Statistics and Report on the Police Force for the year 1893.

 2. The Statistics shew a decrease of 5.57% on the total of all cases reported to the Police, as compared with the Return for last year. In the sub-division of these cases into Serious Crimes (so called) and Minor offences a decrease is found as compared with 1892 of 8.64% in the former category and 4.20% in the latter.

 3. Three cases of murder came under the notice of the Police. The first occurred in Victoria, the victim being a little girl of 12 years of age with whose mother her murderer had quarrelled. The culprit was convicted and hanged.

The second case occurred at Ma Tau Wai in.Kowloon. The victim was the wife of a man named CHIM PUI, and the latter, on her return one night from the gambling dens at Sham Shui Po, accused her of unfaithfulness and cut her throat. The murderer made his escape into Chinese Territory, and although every endeavour was made to induce the Chinese Authorities to bring him to justice, he is, as far as I am aware, still at large.

Trustworthy information was obtained by the exertions of the Police as to the fugitive's hiding place. This was supplied to the Chinese Authorities on the mainland, and the latter, I have the best grounds for believing, actually found and arrested him, but released him after the infliction of a flogging. As a matter of fact the wife having been notoriously unfaithful, the sympathies of her countrymen were with her murderer.

 But in a case in which the sympathies of the Chinese Officials cannot have been affected-that of the fugitive ALVES who was in hiding for three weeks in Chinese Territory not 20 miles from Hong- kong-I regret to say that I did not meet with that assistance to which the constant exertions of the Hongkong Police on behalf of the Chinese Authorities gives this Department a claim.

 The third case of murder occurred in the harbour. Two men hired a boat, on board of which were a man, his wife and child, with the object of smuggling. A dispute arose between the parties and the boatman was thrown into the harbour, his wife and child being treated in the same manner and drowned.

 The boatman was picked up by a passing launch which also recovered one of his assailants, who was tried for murder, found guilty of manslaughter, and sentenced to 18 years' imprisonment with hard labour. The Police have not succeeded in arresting the other man.

4. Among the 19 cases of Robbery with violence there were six so-called gang robberies and five Highway Robberies. In five of these eleven cases the Police failed to make any arrests.

 The first gang robbery was in January last when seven men made a daring attempt to rob the occupant of a house in High Street. They were arrested by Inspector MANN and a party of Police, and convicted at the February Criminal Sessions. Three of them were sentenced to twelve months' hard labour and the other four to three months' hard labour.

 On the night of the 13th of February six armed men entered a house in I On Lane and after gagging and tying up the occupants (four females) stole jewellery valued at $145. Four of the men were afterwards arrested by Inspector STANTON. At the March Criminal Sessions three of them were convicted and sentenced to seven years' hard labour. The fourth was discharged.

 On the 21st of the same month six armed men entered a house in D'Aguilar Street, gagged and tied up the occupants-two females-and stole jewellery and clothing to the value of $200. The Police did not succeed in making any arrest.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

127

  In the afternoon of the 27th of February four men entered the room of the caretaker of a bungalow near No. 1 Tank, gagged him and robbed him of money and clothing to the value of $26. No arrests were made.

On the night of the 24th of May four men, one of whom was armed with a revolver, entered a house in Tsang Shan Lane by means of the skylight, and carried off money and clothing valued $80. One of the men was subsequently arrested by Inspector STANTON, convicted, and sentenced to three years' hard labour.

On the 15th of August three men entered by night a matshed at Ma-ti Kowloon, tied up the occupant a gardener-and carried off a quantity of clothing.

Three men were subsequently arrested with the pawn tickets referring to the stolen property in their possession but were discharged by the Magistrate for want of evidence.

On the evening of the 16th November four arried men, who had engaged a small boat at Yau Ma Ti to convey them to Sham Shui Po, seized the occupants of the boar and robbed them of a $10 dollar note and a gold ring.

  The following day Inspector HANSON arrested one of the men who was convicted at the Supreme Court and sentenced to 9 years' hard labour. Two more of the gang were arrested by a Customs Officer of the Frontier Guard while endeavouring to make their escape into Chinese Territory. In the mouth of one of them was found the stolen $10 note.

They have been tried by the Chinese Authorities, but I have not yet learned with what result. The fourth man has not been discovered.

In three out of the five cases of Highway Robbery arrests were made.

One of these was committed on the Shau Ki Wan Road and of the two men engaged in it, one was arrested and sentenced to twelve months' hard labour.

Gap Road. One of the

In the second three men robbed a domestic servant on the Magazine Gap Road. three was arrested, convicted, and sentenced to three years' hard labour.

The third case occurred on the Aberdeen Road. There were three men implicated in it and one arrest was made, but the prisoner was discharged at the Criminal Sessions for want of evidence.

One of these occurred on the Stanley Road, in course of construction behind Tsat Tsze It was probably committed by some of the coolies engaged on the work.

In the remaining two cases no arrests were made. and the other on the hill side close to the new reservoir Mui.

Except in the last mentioned case when a considerable sum of money was alleged to have been stolen, the value of property reported as lost was small.

5. There were 72 cases of kidnapping, under which category are included offences against the Women and Girls' Ordinance.

In the large majority of cases the prosecutions were successful and 72 persons in all were convicted. The Detective Branch has worked hard in this direction, and obtained nearly all the cases, the remainder being credited to District Watchmen.

6. The number of larcenies reported shews a decrease. The return would probably be much more satisfactory, but for the presence in the immediate neighbourhood of the City of the gambling dens in Chinese Territory at Sham Shui Po and Kowloon City. During the whole of last summer larcenies of personal property by Chinese servants in European employ were very frequent, and I have no doubt that losses at the gaming houses referred to led to the commission of the offences.

17

  It may be of interest to state here that the number of passengers conveyed by free "gambling' launches from Victoria to Sham Shui Po and Kowloon City in one day last summer were 2,616 and 728 respectively.

  But whether the gambling dens at these places are suppressed or not the community will always suffer from such larcenies until they take more trouble in the matter of engaging their servants. At present masters and mistresses rarely know the names even of their servants, and to my knowledge servants that have stolen in one house find re-employment in another. This would not be possible under a system of registration.

7. The number of gambling cases shows a decrease of 46% on the return for last year. This is due to the energy in the suppression of gambling displayed by the Inspectors in the various districts and by the Detective Inspectors. As far back as August last I was able to report that gambling on a large scale had ceased to exist in the Colony, and the same may be said to-day.

8. The Dogs Ordinance has worked smoothly, and so far appears to have produced good results. 2,071 dogs were licensed under it in 1893, 35 of the number being licensed as watch dogs. Seventy- one dogs were destroyed and about 1,000 sent by the owners out of the Colony. Only four cases of dog bites were reported between the 31st of July (the date upon which the Ordinance came into force) and the 31st of December. During the period from 1st January to 31st July, there were twenty-three such cases.

128

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

9. The principal complaints that I have received from members of the community have been regarding the annoyances caused by (a) so called Chinese religious ceremonies accompanied by music and the firing of crackers, (b) mendicancy in the streets and (c) the want of regulation of the street traffic.

    As regards (a), the permits authorising the musical entertainments, cracker firing, &c. are issued by the Registrar General.

The Head of this Department is consulted before the issue of a permit, but the expression of his adverse opinion does not appear to carry much weight.

    Many years ago one of my predecessors, Mr. C. MAY, gave it as his opinion (Police Report for 1885) that the granting of such permits should be vested in the Executive Police, an opinion in which I agree.

With regard to (b), I would mention that in no less than 467 instances have beggars been charged with mendicancy before the Magistrate by the Police, the result being either that the mendicants were punished with a 50 cent fine or given a passage to Canton out of the poor box. It is needless to say that many of the beggars returned again and again to the Colony and no doubt will continue to do so.

I do not consider that in proportion to its population this City is more infested by beggars than the average European City, but if it is desired to rid the island of beggars altogether some more effectual means of dealing with them must be devised than at present exists. Twenty-one years ago Mr. Deane suggested the establishment of a Lazarette on Round Island off Stanley, for the confinement of beggars. It would depend altogether upon the principle upon which such an institution were conducted whether it would prove an attraction or the reverse to beggars. If it were made unattractive I believe that by its means the influx of mendicants might be stopped, and in the absence of co-operation, which it appears impossible to secure, on the part of the Chinese Authorities on the mainland in sending beggars to their homes and preventing their return to the Colony, it seems to be the only way of dealing finally and satisfactorily with the matter.

    As regards (c), the Police have made considerable efforts to improve the regulation of the traffic. The jinricksha and chair coolies now understand the rule of the road, and, as far as my personal observation goes, observe it very well. Rushing at passengers with chairs and jinricks has still continues in spite of innumerable prosecutions for this offence, as many as twenty drawers and drivers having been charged and fined by the Magistrate in one morning in the early part of the last year.

    But it has been found that wherever a Constable is not present, or whenever his back is turned, the drawers or drivers will seize the opportunity of repeating the offence, and as it is manifestly impossible to have more than a limited number of Constables on regulation of traffic duty, it is extremely difficult to put a stop to the annoyance.

The only real remedy is for members of the community to co-operate with the Police by giving into custody offenders who rush at them with their vehicles.

   - Much assistance can similarly be given to the Police by persons, who are in the habit of driving, taking the numbers of jinrick shas that they may see breaking the rule of the road and prosecuting the drawers. The mere reporting of the numbers of offending vehicles would be of much assistance to the Police, as the renewal of the licences of drawers or drivers who had been complained of could be refused.

One of the principal causes of obstructions to traffic in the Queen's Road is the habit all classes of pedestrians have of walking in the middle of the street instead of on the footpaths.

    Europeans are no better than Chinese in this respect, and perhaps the worst offenders are Soldiers and Sailors who walk frequently five and six abreast and thus block the entire roadway.

    The Police have used every endeavour to induce Chinese coolies to keep to the footpaths but without effect.

    The law of the Colony provides no penalty for this particular form of obstruction, and the Hong- kong Chinese coolie knows no respect for any one who has no immediate power over him.

    10. Turning to the interior economy of the Force, of which I took charge on the 11th of February last, I am happy to say that the conduct of the Force as a whole has been very satisfactory.

In the Chief Inspector and Inspectors the Colony possesses a body of men of whom it may well be proud, and they have done their work during the past year in a most loyal, faithful, and able

manner.

No report has been made during the entire year against any Sergeant or Acting Sergeant and they have, without exception, performed their duty in a most satisfactory manner.

The conduct of the European Constables has, with few exceptions, been very good. There were 74 reports during the year against members of this branch of the Force as against 114 in 1892. Making allowance for the number of Constables being on the average seven less than in the previous year, the percentage of decrease was about 27 per cent.

129

There were five more cases of drunkenness (19 against 14 last year) but the average was increased by three men who were reported for this offence more than once, and who have been dismissed.

The number of cases of asleep on duty was the same as last year, viz., 6. On the other hand the cases of Disorderly Conduct, Neglect of Duty, and Absence from Duty were 9, 5 and 14 respectively as compared with 19, 14 and 24 during 1892.

The conduct of the Indian and Chinese contingents, which averaged the same strength as they did last year, was good. The number of reports against men was in the case of the former 278 as against 316 in 1892 or a decrease of 12 per cent., and in the case of the latter 363 as against 444 or a decrease of 18 per cent.

In the case of the Indians and Chinese a substantial diminution in the very serious offence of being asleep on duty was effected by the division of the eight hours night "duty" which has obtained for Asiatic Constables for many years into two "duties" of four hours each.

The new system was introduced on the 1st of July last, and the effect was to reduce the number of reports for being asleep on duty from 29 in April, May, and June, to 17 in July, August and September and to 8 for the last three months of the year.

The number of reports for this offence was 25 for the last half year of 1893 as against 43 for the corresponding period of the previous year.

The change was at first very much disliked by the men especially by the Indians. But after three months' experience of it the large majority of the Indians and the whole of the Chinese informed their superior officers that they preferred it to the old system.

Two Indians and four Chinese were convicted by the Magistrate of Criminal offences, both of the former for preferring false charges (one being fined $50 and the other $5), two Chinese for assault, one for extortion, and one for being found in a gambling house.

The most troublesome portion of the Force has been the Chinese section of the Water Police. I have submitted a scheme for the policing of the harbour by means of steam pinnaces instead of by the rowing boats at present in use. The scheme, if adopted, would render possible a considerable annual economy, increased efficiency, and a re-constitution of this Branch of the Force which in my opinion is very desirable.

11. The equipment of the Force has been improved by reducing the weight of the truncheon and abolishing the cumbrous and heavy truncheon case. The truncheon is now carried in a pocket, and the weight to be carried is 2 lbs. less than formerly. In hot weather the difference is

very appreciable. 12. Drills have been carried on with regularity, and have been extended to the outstations. With Europeans and Indians a satisfactory state of efficiency is easily attained, but with the Chinese- principally by reason of their noiseless shoes-the Drill Instructor has had considerable difficulty. By his energy and painstaking, however, much improvement has been recently accomplished.

13. Only one recruit-a Sergeant Major and storekeeper-was obtained from England during the year.

There were ten enlistments of Europeans in the Colony, including four eligible men who had come here from the Australian Colonies in search of employment.

A reversion was made to the system of recruiting Indians in India instead of locally. The batch only arrived a few days ago, and I have therefore had no opportunity of judging of the success of the experiment.

Much difficulty exists in obtaining eligible Chinese recruits. An endeavour was made to draft men from the body of the District Watchmen supported by the Chinese Community, but without success.

I may here mention that the Captain Superintendent of Police has, on the suggestion of the District Watchmen Committee, been made a member of that Committee.

14. I append a report drawn up at my request by Mr. W. M. B. ARTHUR, Master in charge of the Police School, which is I think satisfactory. Mr. ARTHUR has noticed the institution of allowances for knowledge of English by Indians and Chinese. The examination scheme has been completed by providing for allowances for knowledge of Hindustani by European Officers.

I regard the School as a ineans by which the efficiency of the Force, and its economical administration, (for an English speaking Indian can be put to duty on which it is now only possible to employ a European), may be considerably assisted.

I have accordingly prepared a new First Reading Book, which will, I trust, while aiding Indians and Chinese Constables to learn English also assist them in acquiring a knowledge of their elementary duties.

With a similar object in view an Instruction Book for Chinese Constables has been prepared containing in English and Chinese on opposite pages the Departmental rules and regulations which they are required to know, and such instruction in the provisions of the local Ordinances as have been considered most useful for them.

130

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

When this work is completed it is intended to arrange a similar book for the use of Ind ian Constables.

An endeavour has been made to promote the acquisition of Chinese by European Members of the Force by instituting daily Chinese classes at all the Stations. I have as yet seen no evidence of the results, but the object is such an important one that I shall not fail to give it my constant attention.

For the use of the European Members of the Force, copies of that invaluable little book, the London Police Code, with the references to the corresponding provisions of the local Ordinances marginally noted, have been distributed and have been found useful.

15. A reading room and library has been instituted at the Water Police Station at Tsin Tsa Tsui. The books for it have been purchased out of the Fine Fund.

do.

The Police stationed in Kowloon will thus enjoy the same advantages that the Police in Victoria

A tennis ground has also been constructed and paid for out of the same fund on a waste piece of land in front of the Water Police Station.

16. The health of the Force has on the whole been very satisfactory as compared with former years.

In the number of admissions to Hospital there was a decrease on the figures for last year of 18 in the case of Europeans, but an increase of 31 in the case of Indians and of 13 in the case of Chinese.

There were, however, only four deaths, the smallest number for many years. One European Constable died of small-pox, one Indian of dropsy, one Chinese of cancer and another of heart disease.

It is worthy of special notice that although there were several severe cases no death occurred from malarial fever, a result which is due to the medical and nursing skill of the Civil Hospital Staff.

Two European Constables, one of whom was recovering from the effects of a compound fracture of the leg, suffered from exceptionally malignant attacks, and were so reduced in strength on their discharge from Hospital that it was deemed necessary to send them for a short sea voyage to Japan and back at the expense of the Government.

17. With a view to improving the health and comfort of the Indian Members of the Force, Messes for Indians were instituted last November. Each man had formerly messed himself, the result being that many men, I am convinced, denied themselves sufficient food for the sake of economy. Much of their time which should have been devoted to rest was spent in cooking, and to save themselves trouble they would often cook at one time sufficient food to last for several meals. Portion of their food would thus become stale and unpalatable before the time arrived for eating it. Moreover as there were no mess rooms, the dormitories in which the men had to take their meals suffered much in point of cleanliness.

There was at first some opposition to the innovation, but a beginning was made by establishing two messes, one for Sikhs and the other for Mahomedans at the Central Station.

Before the system was a fortnight old I was invited to inspect the messes at breakfast one morn- ing, when I had the satisfaction of seeing about sixty men seated at two clean comfortable tables and served with a hot appetizing meal. The system has now been extended to Nos. 3, 7 and 8 Stations. As in the case of the introducing the change in the night duty, Chief Inspector MATHIESON gave me most loyal assistance in carrying the mess scheme into execution.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

The Honourable

THE COLONIAL SECRETARY.

Your most obedient Servant,

F. H. MAY, Captain Supt. of Police.

POLICE SCHOOL,

HONGKONG, 1st February, 1894.

SIR,-I have the honour to submit the following remarks on the Police School for 1893.

The attendance has been very much the same as in previous years, and, considering the conditions. under which the School is carried on, has been fairly satisfactory.

The attendance at school is at all times necessarily subordinated to Police duties proper, and the nature of these duties, which involve periodical changes and transfers from time to time, will always prevent a regular and unbroken attendance. The limited time of three hours weekly is thus much curtailed, and results usually obtained in ordinary schools cannot be looked for.

  During the past year it was thought advisable in the Indian and Chinese classes to give Reading and Colloquial Lessons by means of easy sentences referring to the actual duties of the men, as the text reading books were compiled for the use of very young children and not well suited for Asiatic adults.

  These text books will not be renewed as the Captain Superintendent has now in press a simple reading book from which the teachers anticipate most favourable results.

  The most important step with reference to the school has been the introduction of a scheme of examination whereby Indians and Chinese may obtain an allowance for a knowledge of English.

  I do not anticipate that many will pass the standard fixed, but the good effect of the scheme has already been noticed in the increased attention given by many of the men attending school.

The scheme has given great satisfaction and supplies a stimulus long required. Several changes have occurred in the teaching staff during the year.

Mr. CHAN WING KIU retired and was succeeded by Mr. ALLI BUX.

Mr. LUK KING-FO, a most zealous and efficient teacher, discontinued his services at the end of the year and it has been thought unnecessary to fill the vacancy thus caused.

I have the honour to be,

F. H. MAY, Esq.,

Captain Superintendent of Police.

Strangulation by hanging such hanging being the act of the

deceased,

That the deaths resulted from fire or suffocation or other injuries sustained on the occasion of a fire in No. 58 Square Street the probable explanation of the deaths being that the victims returned to the burning buildings after making their escape and that the buildings fell in with them before they again escaped,.

The deceased came to her death by hemorrhage occasioned by a wound on the neck inflicted by the husband of the deceased, The deceased met his death by fire in House No. 74 Aberdeen, First floor to which he had set fire by his own act while labouring under a fit of temporary insanity,

The Magistrate finds that the deceased came to his death through injuries received from the inadvertent discharge of a bullet from a Nordenfelt Five barrel gun on board H.M.S. Pigmy in Hongkong waters after the conclusion of prize firing from the said gun and while it was in process of being secured,

The Magistrate finds that both the deceased died from the

effects of bullet wounds shot on the evening of the 2nd day of March, 1893, at about 8 o'clock P.M. from one or other of two junks named the San Fat Li junk and the San Yau Li junk which were at the time engaged in carrying several parcels known to be raw opium which had been transferred from two small boats which had been attacked in Sandy Bay by the boat in which the two deceased were under the impression that the parcels known to contain raw opium were still on board such said boat, the two said junks thereupon returning the fire of the deceased's boat and inflicting the wounds which caused the deaths of the deceased, the said junks and the afore- said small boat and the boat of the deceased being at the time of such firing in the neighbourhood of Sandy Bay in the waters of Hongkong and not more than a few Cheungs from the shores of Hongkong. The Magistrate further finds that at the time when the shots were fired that caused the deaths of the deceased there were amongst others on board the said San Yau Li junk three Chinese named respectively Leung Un, Kwok Hing, Leung Muk Kau, and amongst others on board the said San Fat Li junk two Chinese named Kwok Lin, Leung Muk-kwai,.....

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 80.

149

The following Report of the Superintendent of Victoria Gaol for 1893, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 7th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 8th March, 1894.

G. T. M. OBRIEN, Colonial Secretary.

No. 51.

SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE, VICTORIA GAOL,

HONGKONG, 27th January, 1894.

SIR, I have the honour to forward, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the Annual Report on the Victoria Gaol for 1893.

2. I am glad to be able to report a very considerable decrease in the number of admissions which reached a total of 4,010 as compared with 5,046 in 1892. The daily average number confined in the Gaol was 458 being a satisfactory decrease on previous years. The daily maximum number was 518.

3. There were 5,108 prison offences committed during the year being about 11 offences to each prisoner as compared with 14 in 1892. The attached comparative returns show the most common of those offences.

4. The most serious-offences committed during the year were 5 assaults on Officers-1 on the Superintendent and 4 on Turnkeys. The first of these was, I believe, occasioned by the changes made in the routine of the Gaol with a view to improve discipline. One of the assaults on Turnkeys was committed by a prisoner out of revenge, the officer having reported him on the previous day for idleness. The other assaults, as well as that on the Superintendent, were committed close upon each other and at a time when the staff was exceptionally weak.

5. The conduct of the staff during the year has, with some exceptions, been most unsatisfactory. 2 second class and 15 third class Turnkeys, 2 second class Guards and 2 Nurses of the Female Prison have been dismissed for misconduct and 1 third class Turnkey deserted. 1 Junior Head Turnkey was reduced to the rank of third class Turnkey and 1 first class Guard to second class Guard.

6. There has been a marked spirit of discontent among the European portion of the staff which has been expressed in some instances in a manner amounting almost to insubordination. I know that some of the officers have committed themselves purposely with a view to being dismissed and I regret that among these are included 2 of the second class Turnkeys who were engaged in England in 1892. 7. The record of casualties further shows that 1 first class, 1 second class and 7 third class Turnkeys and 1 Nurse resigned their appointments, while the services of 3 third class Turnkeys and 1 Nurse were dispensed with being found useless.

r

8. No less than 31 Turnkeys joined the service during the year, yet on the 31st December there were 3 vacancies in the staff. Of the 17 third class Turnkeys serving on that date 6 of them had an average of less than 4 months service and 9 of them had not completed the probationary period of 3 months.

   9. At one period the staff was so far below strength, I was compelled to ask for the services of some Non-Commissioned Officers of the Garrison to act as Turnkeys. The 3 Non-Commissioned Officers, whose services were lent for one month, are not included in the 31 Turnkeys taken on the staff during the year.

   10. From the foregoing remarks it will be seen that throughout the year the majority of the staff consisted of inexperienced officers. The dangers which this weakness might give rise to are obvious.

   11. The health of the staff would appear to have been most indifferent. The returns show that 36 European Turnkeys and 10 Indian Guards have been admitted to the Government Civil Hospital once during the year, while 10 of these men have been admitted twice, 6 of them three times and 2 of them four and five times. On one day there were 8 of the staff in hospital.

   12. I have stated that there is much discontent among the officers and it follows that they perform their duties in a half-hearted manner, not having any real interest in their work, and all who are not bound by their agreements to remain on in the service look for other employment as soon as possible.

   13. The chief causes of their discontent are (1) the number of hours on duty (2) the inadequate pay of the junior ranks (3) the want of a proper mess room and entire absence of any recreation room (4) the frequency with which officers are called upon to perform extra duty. In each respect the officers of the Gaol staff are at a disadvantage as compared with the Police and their discontent is but

150

1894.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, natural when they compare the nature of their duties and the number of hours that they are on duty with those of the Police. I hope that when the separate cells are completed they will afford sufficient accommodation for the greater number of prisoners and that I may then be able to make a slight alteration in the number of hours on duty by the divisions taking a short and long day alternately. I have already during the year made certain recommendations for placing the staff on a more satis- factory footing in which I dealt with the question of pay. I have also asked that proper mess and At the present time recreation rooms, with a Billiard Table, may be provided for the European staff. officers coming off duty have no means of recreation provided in their quarters, consequently they seek these in the town which is often the cause of their getting into trouble. The frequency with which officers are called upon to go on extra duty is caused by the perpetual vacancies occurring in the staff and the number of officers in hospital at one time. This is extremely hard on and is keenly felt by those officers who discharge their duties conscientiously.

     14. All the Turnkeys who joined during the year were engaged locally and most of them have proved to be useless. There is a great deal to be said both for and against obtaining Turnkeys from England. I am of opinion that, at any rate, a percentage of the staff should be engaged and trained in England.

                             I hoped that more space would 15. I must again bring to notice the insufficient yard space. have been provided by the Gaol Extension, but I find that when the two blocks of cells and other necessary buildings are erected the yard space on the new site will make no appreciable difference.

16. Owing to the limited number of Turnkeys available for duty I have not been able to send out the chain-gang, which is usually employed on public works, since the month of August.

     17. The industrial labour account for 1893 shows a profit of $2,726.76. The decrease in the year's profits is chiefly due to the increased cost of paper stuff for Oakum picking and coir yarn for mat making. I must however again point out that industrial work is greatly hampered by want of space.

18. It is to be regretted that accommodation for female prisoners is not included in the scheme for the Extension of the Gaol. The unsuitableness of the building in which they are now located is well known. There are only 2 associated wards and 2 punishment cells so that, in order to keep prisoners on remand separate from convicted prisoners, all classes of convicted prisoners must be placed together in one ward. The only

            The only place where the prisoners can exercise in the open air is 24 feet long and feet wide, a totally inadequate space for the purpose.

2. At the close of the year 1892 there were two hundred and eight (208) houses for which drainage plans had been submitted and which were then unfinished; one hundred and forty-two (142) of these have been completed and the plans for nine (9) cancelled, leaving fifty-seven (57) to carry

forward to 1894.

3. During last year plans for the re-drainage of eight hundred and forty-seven (847) houses were received and passed by me and of these five hundred and fifty-seven (557) houses have been completed and the plans for ninety-five (95) cancelled, leaving one hundred and ninety-five (195) to carry

forward.

4. The total number of houses on my books therefore during the past year was one thousand and fifty-five (1,055); six hundred and ninety-nine (699) have been completed, the plans for one hundred aud four (104) cancelled and two hundred and fifty-two (252) are carried forward.

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 work done during the past year has exceedel that of any previous year and I am glad to be able to record an improve- nent in the carrying out of the work. The number of new houses which have been granted certifi- cates is much the same as last year.

  6. The number of houses carried forward is large and this is partly owing to a great difficulty I experience in getting the floors and down pipes thoroughly repaired. In a large number of these houses the drains have been laid and covered, but the cook house floors have not been properly relaid. It is most important in order to prevent a dampness of walls and ceilings and the fouling of the sub- soil that floors and down pipes should be impervious to moisture.

7. A large number of owners of property have been called upon to redrain by the Board during the past year, it being generally found that where a nuisance occurs in one house, a whole block is affected. The old house drains in the Colony still discharge into the Storm Water Drains and they are generally made the receptacle for any and all rubbish that can be forced into them; in the few instances where traps have been fixed at the inlets they have been either broken or removed to get rid of rubbish which will not pass through them. This old pattern of trap is not allowed under the bye-laws and the pattern as now used cannot be removed without opening the ground, the new pattern are occasionally broken either by carelessness in cleaning or through ignorance of their construction and object, but the instances which have come under my notice form but a very small proportion of the number of traps fixed.

  8. Now that the new sewerage works are nearing completion it is highly important that all private premises should be put in good order that the sewage may be separated from the Storm Water Drains. I am therefore very glad to be able to record an increase in the number of houses re-drained during the past year; should the number fall off it is a question whether it would be wise for the Board to obtain powers for, and to institute, a systematic inspection of the drainage arrangements on all private premises throughout the Colony. 30 per cent. (approximately) of the houses in the Colony have now been re-drained and 13 per cent. certified as having been built in compliance with the provisions of the Public Health Ordinance.

  9. During the past year water closets have by the permission of the Board been constructed and connected to the house drains at the Sailor's Home; Hongkong Dispensary; Hongkong Hotel (old buildings); Portuguese Club; Hongkong and Shanghai Bank; "Duart" Caine Road; Tramway Terminus, The Peak; and the P. & O. Offices. The house drains from these premises are in all instances connected to the new system of sewers.

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

I have the honour to be,

Sir, Your obedient Servant,

The Secretary

The following Despatch from the Secretary of State respecting the drawing of half salaries in Sterling at 3/-, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 7th instant, is published.

DOWNING STREET,

25th-September, 1893.

SIR,

I have the honour to enclose, for your consideration, an extract from a despatch to the Governor of the Straits Settlements, in which it is suggested that the officers of that Government, who are not domiciled in the Colony, shall be paid when on leave at 3/- to the dollar, and shall in lieu receive a non-pensionable allowance while on active service so as to make up half their salary to the rate of 3/- to the dollar.

I am prepared to sanction the same course under precisely the same limita- tions in the case of Hongkong.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient,

humble servant,

Governor

RIPON.

Extract from a despatch from the Marquess of Ripon to the Officer Administering the Government of the Straits Settlements. 25th September, 1893.

*

2. It seemed to me that, with little additional expense to the Colonial Govern- ment, the position of those officers who are not domiciled in the Colony, and who therefore suffer most acutely from the fall of exchange, may be improved, by granting an allowance in compensation for loss on exchange in accordance with the Indian precedent, in return for a reduction of the rate at which the leave salary is paid. I have accordingly suggested that the future rate for leave salary shall be, in the case of the officers in question, 3/- to the dollar, and that the pay, while on service, shall, up to half the amount, be also calculated at 3/-; the compensation allowance, i.e., the difference between half salary at 3/- and half salary at the market rate of exchange not being pensionable, but the pension on the salary as it now stands being left to be calculated at the existing rate.

3. I am prepared to sanction these proposals if they are adopted by the Legislative Council and accepted by the officers, in whose interests they have been suggested.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 83.

157

The following Report of the Acting Registrar General for 1893, which was laid before the Legis- lative Council on the 7th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 8th March, 1894.

G. T. M. OBRIEN, Colonial Secretary.

REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 25th January, 1894.

SIR,-I have the honour to transmit my Report on the work of this Department for the year 1893.

REVENUE COLLECTED BY THE DEPARTMENT.

The Revenue collected during the year amounted to $81,757.65, an increase of $4,369.48 over that collected in 1892. Tables I A, B, and C show particulars of the revenue; the large increase in hawker's licence fees being chiefly due to the fact that only one regular quarter's fees were collected in 1892, those for the first three quarters of the year having been already paid in 1891.

These fees are now collected quarterly in accordance with the Ordinance.

WOMEN AND GIRLS PROTECTION ORDINANCE (11 of 1890).

   230 women and girls were detained under Part II of the Ordinance and disposed of as shown in Table II A. Table II B gives the number of girls allowed out under security whose guardians are obliged to periodically bring them to this Office. Table II C. is a list of persons reported missing and of those recovered, and Table II D. one of prosecutions, instituted by the Department under this and other Ordinances, involving 50 persons of whom 45 were convicted.

   Returns are given in Tables III A and B of the movements of prostitutes and servants in brothels during the year. The sections of Ordinance 11 of 1890 relating to the registration of brothels are of doubtful utility.

   The Committee of the Po Leung Kuk and other members of the Chinese Community continued to give valuable assistance to the Registrar General in carrying out the provisions of the Ordinance. After an exhaustive enquiry by a Committee of the Legislative Council an Ordinance was passed incorporating the Po Leung Kuk but it still awaits the sanction of the Secretary of State.

FEMALE EMIGRATION.

Table IV shows the number of women, girls and boys passed by an officer of the Harbour Master's Department assisted by an officer from the Registrar General's Office.

The total number was 9,109 as compared with 6,550 in 1892.

POPULATION.

The population of the Colony on the 31st December estimated on the average increase during the period 1857-91 would amount to-

British and Foreign (including Army and Navy).

10,686.

Chinese.

228,038.

Total.

238,724

I am inclined to believe that this estimate is rather under than above the mark from the following' consideration :-

The number of pigs slaughtered for food in the Colony during the years 1891, 1892 and 1893 was 122,942, 126,766 and 131,298 respectively.*

If the population ascertained at the Census be taken as a basis, that in May last year, judging from the above figures which show a regular increase, would amount to about 238,200, and presuming that the increase is maintained it would probably amount to at least 240,000 on the last day of the

I therefore fix the estimate of the population on the 31st December at 238,724.

MARRIAGES.

year.

   The number of marriages in 1893 was 84; but a number of them were not those of residents in Hongkong. The state of the law in ignoring marriages where both parties are non-Christians is not quite satisfactory.

BIRTHS AND DEATHS.

Table V A shows the number of Births and Deaths. The births are below those for 1892 by 42 while the number of deaths is greater by 515.

The annual rates for births and deaths per 1,000 of the estimated population are 7.54 and 22.71 respectively.

* These figures were supplied by the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon.

THE HONGKong governNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

BURIALS.

    Of the 4,334 deaths occurring among the Chinese in Victoria 4,037 were buried in the Colony, 217 were sent out of the Colony, and 80 reported as being in the Mortuary awaiting interment or removal.

EXHUMATIONS.

    With the concurrence of the Sanitary Superintendent 204 Exhumation Permits were granted during the year for removal of remains into China or re-burial in the Colony.

INFANTILE MORTALITY.

    Table V C shows the mortality at various ages from which it will be seen that the number of deaths under one year amounted to 25 and 34.69 per cent. of the non-Chinese and Chinese deaths respectively. The percentages in the previous year were 11.95 and 32.13.

HOSPITAL Deaths.

Out of the total of 5,422 the deaths in hospitals in the Colony were as follows:-

Tung Wa Hospital,

Government Civil Hospital,

Alice Memorial Hospital,

Royal Naval Hospital,

Military Hospital,

Peak Hospital,

Hospital Hulk Hygeia,

Nethersole Hospital,

I understand, however, that some deaths at the Peak Hospital were not registered.

REMARKS ON THE VITAL STATISTICS OF THE CHINESE OF VICTORIA.

    The number of births in Victoria, obtained by deducting those which take place in Wong- nai-chung and at Causeway Bay and among the boat population, is 1,081, and of deaths, 4,135.

    The number of deaths of children under one year, 1,546, exceeds the mean number of births in 1892-93 by 433. Probably the births of none of the children under one month old who died in the Convents and the Tung Wa Hospital were registered, nor the births of those whose bodies were found exposed shortly after death. Adding these the total number of births may be taken as 2,126.

Again the number of families and therefore the number of married women in Victoria is 15,000. Deducting 3,900 as the number of women above 50, and taking the annual rate of births as 22 per 100 married women of child-bearing age, we arrive at a total of 2,442 as the probable number of births. The real number is no doubt greater than this and the number of unregistered births may be taken to be at least 1,500. Even assuming the number of births per annum to be 3,000 the number of deaths of children under one year to 1,000 births is over 500, compared with 245 in Leicester in the year 1875, an exceptionally high rate.

    Of the 1,546 deaths under one year 1,212 took place in the Italian and French Convents and 20 in the Tung Wa Hospital. The bodies of 128 children under one year of age were found exposed in the streets and orders for their burial given by the Police Magistrate. 46 bodies of children under

years of age were found on the Praya or on the foreshore, and 15 in Poyan Street alone.

5

    The number of deaths of male infants under 1 year of age to 100 females is 71.37; the number of registered births of males to 100 females in the last two years is 130.27. Neither rate is natural, but it seems as if less care was paid to female children than to male.

   The annual rate of mortality at different ages is given in Table XII B. It compares favourably with that for males in London for the years 1861-70. The census returns are unfortunately not very full and it has been found impossible to separate the sexes at different ages, but as the number of deaths of males per mille is 23.14 and that of females 41.20, the return would be still more favourable to Hongkong in a comparison with the death-rate in London.

The death-rate per mille for the whole population is 28.50. The number of persons who died under 5 years is 2,037 or nearly exactly half the number of total deaths. Of the 1,231 deaths in the Tung Wa Hospital (8 out of the 1,239, as stated in Table VII having occurred before admission) 1,002 are those of males, of whom 711 are entered as being labourers, 155 as servants. The number of persons who died between the ages of 21 and 60 is 779, as compared with 787, the number of those of the same age who died outside the hospital. The mortality per cent. of the cases treated was 41.46 or more than five times that for hospitals of the same size at home. The rate is, however, less than in the previous year.

    This Ordinance, 7 of 1872, which is copied almost exactly from the law in force in that year at home has not received any of the emendations which were made in the English Act of 1874, but the matter is at present under consideration. The main defect, in my opinion, is that the registration of deaths even by nearest relatives is not compulsory, and I am of the opinion that in a community like Hongkong where so many persons are without relatives the occupiers of houses in which deaths take place should be compelled to give information. I do not think that many deaths among the Chinese

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

community are unregistered as Chinese undertakers refuse to bury except on receipt of a certificate of registration, and the cemeteries are under Government supervision. In the case of Europeans all responsibility ceases as soon as the clergyman has given notice to the Registrar, and I know of two cases this year where it has been impossible to procure registration. It is very probable that a number of Indian deaths are never registered.

There is no restriction on the removal of dead bodies from the Colony, and in case of a crime having been committed, the removal of the body would in certain cases prevent detection.

As regards registration of births, there is no provision enabling Jews and other non-Christians to add names to children after registration of birth, the addition of baptismal names only being provided. Cases occur where this restriction causes serious annoyance. The fee of 10 cents should be abolished. It is not worth the trouble of collecting. The time for registration of birth should be extended from 30 to 42 days, as frequently the father, is absent from the Colony. There is no provision regarding still-births and the burial of the bodies.

VACCINATION ORDINANCE.

Table VI shows that 1,242 vaccination notices were issued during the year and that 1,273 certi- ficates of successful vaccination were received. There were no prosecutions under the Ordinance.

REGISTRATION OF Books.

  44 books were registered in 1893 as compared with 29 in 1892. Lists are published in the Gazette, at the end of each quarter.

Table VIII A is a return of-

REGISTRATION OF HOUSEHOLDERS.

(f) changes in tenancy reported.

Table VIII B shows that the number of Chinese shops opened and closed during the year amounted to 1,128 and 936, an excess of 192 in favour of shops opened. The numbers in 1892 were 1,148 opened and 983 closed.

NIGHT PASSES, &C.

88 applications for night passes were received and dealt with, while the number

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1894.

DISTRICT WATCHMEN.

   The Captain Superintendent of Police was appointed by the Governor in November last to be er officio a member of the Committee which advises the Registrar General in managing the District Watchmen Force. The revenue from voluntary contributions was $7,505.28 while $500 was contributed by Government. Owing to the fact that the Committee has a large surplus in hand, Government has decided to withdraw for the time the annual contribution of $2,000. The expenditure amounted to $10,472.71, of which, however, a portion was non-recurrent.

   I estimate the ordinary expenditure at about $8,500 per annum, being an excess over ordinary revenue of about $1,000. As there is a balance in hand of over $16,000, it will be at least 12 years (allowing for unforeseen contingencies) before the Committee may have to request the Government to re-consider the renewal of the grant.

The

present state of the force is as follows:-

the total being 65 of whom 2 are employed at the Po Leung Kuk and 3 at the Chinese Recreation Ground, their wages being refunded by the Po Leung Kuk and from the Chinese Recreation Ground Fund. Table IX shows the accounts of the year in detail.

CHINESE RECREATION GROUND.

   The buildings are in a fair state of repair with the exception of the cook-houses. The advisability of removing them altogether is at present being considered. 94 stalls are let, out of a total of 125, besides the two "story telling" pavilions, and 33 permits to sell various articles on the ground at a uniform rate of $2 per month each have been granted.

The two Indian watchmen formerly employed on the ground have been dispensed with and their duty is now being performed by two Chinese lent from the District Watchmen Force, effecting a saving of $192 per annum. The revenue from the stalls, &c., was $2,404.35 as compared with $2,457.88 in 1892, while the expenditure amounted to exactly the same as the revenue, $1,600.00, being a repay- ment to Government of a portion of the loan of $6,000.00 advanced for the improvement of the ground. The balance in hand is $1,097.21. I have recommended separately that $1,000.00 might now be transferred to Government in further repayment of the balance of the loan which on the 31st ultimo amounted to $3,000.00. The ordinary revenue for next year may be estimated at $2,500.00 while the expenditure may be put at $620.00. The debt to Government should therefore be paid off in less than 2 years.

GENERAL WORK.

   The amount of translation and other general work has been rather increasing; 1,200 petitions on various matters were received, as compared with 1,005 in 1892. Table X shows the account of the Market Charitable Fund which is at the disposal of the Registrar General for charitable purposes, and Table XI gives an account of the money recovered on passage tickets of women and girls detained on board ship or at the Emigration Office under Ordinance 11 of 1890. The balance in hand of the former fund is $1,617.04 while that of the latter is $189.76.

STAFF.

   Mr. LOCKHART went home on leave in June when I took over the duties of Registrar General. WONG WING CHIU was appointed Shroff in place of WONG WING Ho resigned.

   Sergeant WATSON of the Police Force was appointed Acting Inspector in the Department in room of Mr. HORTON absent on leave. Two Chinese writerships and a messengersnip were abolished on the retirement of To LOK-HIM, the resignation of YAU KI-TUNG and the dismissal of Lo MUN-wo; while the boat's crew has also been abolished and the boat sold. These changes effect a saving of over $650.00 per annum.

   I would recommend that, when opportunity occurs, one of the higher paid clerkships should be abolished as the work could be distributed among the other members of the staff, and if the registration of brothels is dispensed with, one Inspector would be quite sufficient for the work of the office; one of the attendants might be abolished also on opportunity. These changes would effect a further saving of over $4,000.00 per annum.

   The Registration Clerk is overpaid; while the Shroff, the first Chinese writer and the second Chinese clerk and interpreter are rather underpaid.

I have the honour to be,

I returned to Breaker Point on the morning of the 16th examining the Coast closely on my way, and sent an officer to enquire at the Lighthouse for The Englishman in charge stated that 3 days previously the body of a Chinaman had been picked up, which he saw, and in his opinion it was that of a fisherman.

NOTICE TO MARINERS, No. 1 of 1894.

G. T. M. OBrien, Colonial Secretary.

Marine Department, Wellington, N. Z., 5th January, 1894.

Eleven of the crew of the barque "Spirit of the Dawn," which was wrecked on the Antipodes Island on the 4th September last, having remained on the island for eighty-eight days without becoming aware of the existence of the depot of provisions and clothing for castaways which is established there, it is thought advisable to draw the attention of mariners to the fact that such depots are maintained by the New Zealand Government on that island, and on the Auckland, Campbell, Bounty, and Kermadec Islands, and that it is proposed to establish one on the Snares.

The following are the positions of the depots :-

Auckland Islands.-A depot is placed on the south side of Erebus Cove, Port Ross, and another in Camp Cove, Carnley Harbour. A third will be placed at the head of Norman Inlet the next time the Government steamer visits the islands. One boat is placed on the north-west end of Adams Island, another on Enderby Island, and one will be placed on Rose Island.

Campbell Island.-A depot is erected in Tucker Cove, Perseverance Harbour, and a boat will be placed at the head of that harbour.

Antipodes Islands.-A depot is placed abreast the anchorage on the north-east side of the principal island.

Bounty Islands.-There is a depot on the principal island.

Snares Island.--A depot will be established on this island the next time the "Hinemoa" visits the place,-

Will the Government lay upon the table a copy of the Petition, dated 12th December, 1893, to The Right Honourable The Marquis of Ripon, Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies, from the Hongkong, Canton and Macao Steam-boat Company, Limited, and the China Steam Navigation Company, Limited, praying for Government assistance in their efforts to suppress smuggling on board their steam-ships by causing such amendments to be made in the Hongkong law as may be thought necessary and effectual, &c., &c., and a copy of any reply which may have been received thereto.

CROWN AGENTS.

In view of the West Indian Colonies, including British Honduras and British Guiana, having recently passed Resolutions through their Legislatures condemning the Crown Agency system as an expensive and wasteful medium for the transaction of their business, and as a like feeling obtains amongst a large number of ratepayers in this Colony, will the Government lay upon the table at the earliest possible date, a copy of the Parliamentary Paper C. 3075 of 1881, which is said to contain full information as to the arrangements existing between the Colonial Office, and the Crown Agents.

PO LEUNG KUK.

Will the Government lay upon the table a copy of the Despatch No. 204 of 22nd December last, from the Right Honourable the Marquis of Ripon, Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies, in connection with my Memorial, dated 27th June, 1893, praying His Lordship to return Ordinance No. 10 of 1893 to Hongkong for amendment in the directions indicated therein, and to recommend to the Colonial Government, either to remove the Registrar General from the governing body of the Po Leung Kuk, or to invest him with powers adequate to his duties and responsibilities to the Women and Girls under his care, under Ordinance No. 11 of 1890.

FINANCES.

Will the Government inform the Council,-

(1) What moneys were expended by the Crown Agents in England, on account of the

Colony, during 1893,

(2) How much of these were defrayed out of the proceeds of the Colony's recent Gold

Loan,

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH MARCH, 1894.

205

(3) What amount, if any, of our revenue during 1893 has been remitted to, or drawn for by the Crown Agents, from the Colony, to defray their expenses, and the rates of exchange, if any,

(4) Have any moneys derived either from revenue in 1893, or from Supreme Court, or Reclamation Deposits, been remitted to England, or withdrawn from the Colony during the past nine months, for any purpose other than to defray necessary expenditure in England on account of the Colony.

(5) If so, what amount, from what funds derived, at what rates of exchange remitted, how employed in England, and at what rates of interest, under what authority have such remittances been made, and for what reasons,

and (6) What amount of the Colonial Government's funds now remain in England, how much thereof is derived from revenue, how much from deposits, and how much from the proceeds of the recent Gold Loan.

QUESTIONS. Mr. CHATER, with His Excellency's permission, asked the following questions:-

1. Has any portion of the new Gold Loan been remitted to the Colony, or drawn for, and if so,

at what rate of exchange?

2. Has any answer been received from the Secretary of State to the Governor's despatch recom-

mending a reduction of the Military Contribution?

3. Has anything been done to give effect to the recommendation of the Un-official Members of Council that the amount of the Military Contribution be fixed in dollars and at the rate at which the first instalment was paid when the contribution was raised from £20,000 to £40,000?

FIRE BRIGADE Department,

i

HONGKONG, 31st January, 1894.

SIR, I regret to have to report a large increase in the number of Fires occurring in 1893 as compared with previous years. In hardly any of them was the origin of the fire explained, in many of them the origin was demonstrably suspicious, and in most of them apparently suspicious.

   The decline and rise in the number of fires appears to keep pace with the care or negligence displayed in the insuring of effects in Chinese houses.

These policies are for the most part effected by agents acting for companies in Europe, such agents receiving a commission on the policies and having no other personal interest in the matter. They act through Chinese agents or compradores, and it is highly probable that these compradores in securing business for their employers enlarge upon the great advantage of being insured in bad times when an accidental fire will clear off in a moment at fair profit stocks that it might otherwise have been difficult to realize. It is quite possible too that such accidents might occur at a time when the original stocks upon which the policy was effected were depleted, the probable destruction of the house and of the books making the actual state of the stock at the time of the fire a matter of conjecture only. In this way the insurer might not only eat his cake but have it.

   There appears to be a notion that under the double safeguard of a fire enquiry and the probable speedy extinction of a fire if it occurs the same caution in the administration of fire policies is not so necessary as it once was.

To a certain extent this notion is not without foundation as I think experience has shown that the Brigade may be relied upon to extinguish fires with reasonable despatch under normal conditions, but it is easy to imagine a state of things in which a fire might get out of hand and a repetition of the 1878 disaster be possible.

Every effort is made to minimize this possibility and the whole training of the Brigade and the arrangements in connection with it have as their central object the limitation of the area to be controlled and the provision beforehand of all such arrangements as are likely to save time and confu-

upon the occurrence of a fire.

sion

The first of these and one to which I attach particular importance is the running out more hose than is required to reach the scene of the fire. The first impulse of a fireman is to run out the hose up to the fire to attach the branch pipe and turn on water. If then he is ordered to take the hose upstairs say of the adjoining house which has just caught fire in the upper storey, he finds that he has not enough hose to enable him to do so. It then becomes necessary to obtain another length and to stop the water supply, an operation which always takes time and causes confusion and valuable time is thereby lost. All the firemen are therefore drilled to run out a considerable margin of hose bringing it round to the fire in a sweep, so that if it is required to go upstairs it can be done without any dislocation of the arrangements. Of all the provisions that can be made beforehand I consider this one of the most important, and it is now thoroughly understood by the Brigade and is always carried out.

Another important point is to constantly inspect from the inside the adjoining buildings. This duty is entrusted to the foremen who are told to do this from time to time and to report what they find to the Superintendent or Senior Officer present.

Further precautions are taken in having in readiness reserves of hose, and duplicates of all the more important appliances that are usually brought into use, and lastly in order to be prepared to meet as far as possible the danger arising from fresh fires occurring through the fall of sparks carried by the wind to a distance, a couple of fire despatch boxes are taken down and kept in readiness to be taken to any spot where they may be required.

With regard to these latter they have during the past year been slightly modified in the direction of making them much lighter, and they have also been increased in number. They owe their origin to the desire to take advantage of the excellent water pressure obtained from the hydrants, and it has been found possible to gradually extend their presence all over the Colony without encroaching on the normal vote for stores.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH MARCH, 1894.

207

  To myself as Superintendent it is an immense relief to feel that a ready and practicable method of dealing with fires on the upper levels is now available through the instrumentality of these appliances made possible through our excellent water pressure. The highest level at present supplied with them is Queen's Gardens, and one has only to imagine how difficult it would be to tackle with a fire in that neighbourhood from the harbour to realize the great advantage that the existing water supply gives to the operations of the Brigade.

  I have before now drawn attention to the fact that there exists no means of extinguishing fires at the Peak. Peak residences are now so numerous having amongst them extensively fitted up Hotels and the summer residences of His Excellency the Governor and all the leading European residents of the Colony, that as a fireman I do not like the idea of these places being at the mercy of accident, and I think money would be well spent in taking advantage of the water system of the Peak District by making it available for the use of fire extinguishing appliances.

I attach a list of fires for the last ten years with the estimated amount of property destroyed in each case and also a list of incipient fires during the past year put out without calling out the Brigade.

  Mr. HORSPOOL having returned from leave has relieved Mr. MATHIESON of his duties as Acting Assistant Superintendent of the Fire Brigade. This latter Officer performed his duties to my entire satisfaction. Mr. CAMPBELL and Mr. KINGHORN continue to carry out their duties with the same care and discretion as they have invariably shown and Mr. Chau Shau remains the same exemplary Clerk as before.

All the firemen of the Brigade have worked well and zealously at their duties.

  I attach copy of report from Mr. KINGHORN regarding the state of the Engines. The suggestions made in his letter will be dealt with separately.

I have the honour to be,

The Honourable G. T. M. OBRIEN, C.M.G.,

Colonial Secretary.

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

H. E. WODEHOUSE, Superintendent, Fire Brigade.

HONGKONG, 19th January, 1894.

SIR,---I have the honour to forward my report on the state of the Government Fire Engines for the year ending 31st December 1893.

4

STEAMER No. 1.

(Floating Engine by Merryweather & Sons).

This Engine has been 27 years in service and is in good order. The Boiler is very much worn and-considering its age-I cannot recommend it to be repaired; the pressure has been reduced, for safety, to the lowest useful limit and I would strongly recommend a new Boiler to be obtained for this Engine at an early date, as it is the only Floating Engine in the Brigade and might be called upon to do some heavy work.

STEAMER No. 3.

(Land Engine by Shand & Mason).

  This Engine has been 15 years in service, it has been kept as reserve engine during the year, regularly tested at the monthly drills for drivers, and is now in good order and condition.

STEAMER No. 4.

This Engine has been 12 years in service, it has not been disabled at a fire, has required no repairs, and is now in good order and condition.

STEAMER No. 5.

(Land Engine by Shand & Mason).

This Engine has been 8 years in service, during the early part of the year it did some good work at fires, and was 23 times under steam, it has not been disabled, and is now in good order and condition.

STEAMER No. 6.

(Land Engine by Shand & Mason).

  This Engine has been 15 years in service (9 years in Volunteer Brigade), it has been regularly tested during the year at the monthly drill for drivers, the Boiler is much worn and is under reduced pressure, otherwise the Engine is in good order and condition.

.

208

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH MARCH, 1894.

MANUAL ENGINES, HOSE, REELS, &c.

    Nine Manual Engines and fittings are all in good order. The Hose, Reels and Supply Carts, ladders and gear are all in good order and condition.

The Assistant Engineer and Engine drivers have done their work, during the year, to my satis- faction, and are very attentive to their duties.

Three, out of the seven men, who applied to learn Engine driving, at the beginning of the year, have attended drill and passed their examination successfully, the other four failed to pass.

NOTE. In the event of a conflagration of any magnitude occurring between Wing Lok Street and West Point Wharf the Engines can be of very little service on account of the Reclamation Works going on, it is impossible to place them near the water in the harbour, and if it

· could be arranged at a small cost, I would recommend that wells be made, at intervals of 100 yards, just inside of the Old Praya wall, until the reclaimed ground is passable for the Engines.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

JOHN W. KINGHORN,

Engineer,

The following Despatch from the Secretary of State on the subject of The Po Leung Kuk Incor- poration Ordinance, 1893, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 15th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 16th March, 1894.

(Copy.) HONGKONG.

No. 204.

G. T. M. OBRIEN,

Colonial Secretary.

DOWNING STREET,

22nd December, 1893.

:

SIR,-I have had under my careful consideration your despatch No. 134 of 27th June last, submitting for the signification of Her Majesty's pleasure, "The Po Leung Kuk Incorporation Ordinance 1893," and your despatch No. 137 of 28th June last, forwarding a Memorial from Mr. T. H. WHITEHEAD in which he states his objections to certain provisions of the Ordinance.

In my opinion sections 6 and 9 of the Ordinance give the Board of Direction too absolute power, free from any control either by the Registrar General or by the Governor; and although there may be no probability of such power being abused, I think it right that provision should be made for some measure of control on the part of the Government. It seems hardly necessary, as proposed by Mr. WHITEHEAD and Mr. CHATER, that with the view of the Registrar General control- ling the proceedings of the Society from the outside he should be removed from the position of President of the Board in which he is placed by the Ordinance; but the Ordinance should be amended so as to provide for an appeal to the Governor, as suggested at page viii. of the Report of the Committee on the Po Leung Kuk. This could be effected by adding at the end of section 9 of the Ordinance the following words, "provided that in any case in which the Board is divided in opinion the Pre- "sident or any two Members of the Board may demand that the point be referred "to the Governor for his decision, which shall in every such case be final," and by inserting in section 6 after the words "purposes thereof" the following words, "subject to an appeal to the Governor as hereinafter provided."

Section 19 of the Ordinance should also be amended by inserting after the words "Police Force," the following words, "or District Watchmen otherwise there would be no provision under which District Watchmen could be lent to the Society, (as heretofore), while at the same time retaining the powers and author- ities of a Constable, which they possess under Ordinance 13 of 1888.

her

I have now to inform you that Her Majesty will not be advised to exercise power of disallowance with respect to the Ordinance, No. 10 of 1893, entitled, An Ordinance for the establishment and incorporation of the Chinese Society for the prevention of kidnapping and for the protection of Women and Children, commonly known as the Po Leung Kuk, but you will understand that the Ordinance should not be brought into operation, until it has been amended.

It gives me pleasure to learn from the Report of the Committee, which enquired into the history of the P'o Leung Kuk, that much good work has in past years been done by this Society, and I may express a confident hope that their work will be continued in future with even greater success under the terms of the new Ordinance.

Mr. WHITEHEAD should be informed that I have carefully considered his Memorial, and have given you directions to amend the Ordinance on certain points as indicated in the second and third paragraphs of the present despatch. The purport of those paragraphs may be cominunicated to him.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

(Signed)

RIPON.

Governor Sir WILLIAM ROBINSON, K.C.M.G.,

    The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs has received from Her Majesty's Ambassador at Madrid the following translation, in precis, of a Royal Decree respecting the trade of Great Britain with Spain :-

(Translation in precis.)

Extract from the "Madrid Gazette" of January 1, 1894.

PRESIDENCY OF THE COUNCIL OF MINISTERS.

Preamble.

In view of the fact that the Conventions concluded with Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and Holland come into operation on the 1st January, while the Commercial Treaties with Germany, Austria, and Italy, the Conventions with Great Britain and Denmark, and the Provisional Agreement concluded with France are awaiting ratification, it becomes necessary to adopt certain measures for establishing a legitimate reciprocity until the Cortes shall have met, discussed the Conventions, and submitted their suggestions for Royal sanction. These measures should not differ from those adopted in the case of nations with whom we have recently concluded Treaties, and those which, in virtue of past Agreements, are entitled to most-favoured-nation treatment, in view of the Conventions coming into force on the 1st January.

With regard to those nations which have not yet concluded new Commercial Agreements, and those coming under the Second Column of the Tariff in virtue of the Royal Order of the 29th June 1892, it is impossible to introduce any change until a more satisfactory arrangement is arrived at.

Madrid, December 31, 1893.

(Signed)

PRAXIDES MATEO SAGASTA.

Royal Decree.

In the name of my august son, King Alphonso XIII., and as Queen-Regent of the Realm, at the instigation of the Council of Ministers,

I hereby decree as follows:

Article 1. From the 1st January next, and pending the deliberations of the Cortes on the Project of Law to be immediately laid before them, the most reduced ("mas reducidos") Tariff and further advantages resulting from the Commercial Conventions with Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, and Holland shall be applied to the products of the soil and industries of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Denmark, France, Great Britain and her Colonies, and Italy, subject to the same conditions as those under which those benefits are conceded.

Art. 2. Similar rights and immunities shall be applied to those nations possessing the most- favoured-nation clause in Treaties of Commerce, Peace, or Friendship, which have not been named.

    Art. 3. The duties of the Second Column of the Tariff shall continue to be levied in the form now applying to the products of the soil and industries of all other nations entitled to this advantage, in virtue of the Royal Order of the 29th June 1892.

Art. 4. The Government shall notify the provisions of this Decree to the Cortes.

Given at the Palace the 31st December 1893.

HONGKONG VOLUNTEER CORPS. CONCESSIONS.

THE HONOURABLE THE COLONIAL SECRETARY,

With reference to your letter No. 1511 of 25th October last, I would suggest for the consideration of His Excellency the Governor that, as an experiment, in the first instance, the following concessions as to exemption from business for bona fide drill, &c. as Volunteers, be given to Public Servants, and that private firms should be asked to do the same:-

Branch.

During the six weeks special training at present fixed from 1st March to 16th April.

At other times of the year.

Field Artillery,

Saturday afternoons from 2 P.M.,

1st Saturday in each month from 2 P.M.

Machine Gun Companies, Saturday afternoons from 2 P.M.,

...

3rd Saturday in each month from 2 P.M.

Also for both branches, a complete holiday on Saturday in the week of annual mobilization of the Garrison, and that private firms should be asked to give a half-holiday to Volunteers on the afternoon of the day selected for the Queen's Birthday parade.

2. The points, however, on which the Officers of the Corps and myself lay the greatest stress are, as shewn in my memorandum of 24th October, 1893.

1st. That the Government should impress on Public Servants that it approves of their becoming Volunteers, and will facilitate as much as possible their carrying out the duties entailed on them as such.

2nd. That private firms be moved to make a similar notification to their employes.

SIR,

HONGKONG GENERAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, HONGKONG, 19th March, 1894.

   I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your esteemed communication of 6th instant handing copy of a letter from the Acting Commandant of the Hongkong Volunteer Corps containing a suggestion that the Government should impress on Public Servants that it approves of their becoming Volunteers, and will facilitate as much as possible their carrying out the duties entailed on them as such, and further, that private firms be moved to make a similar notification.

   While viewing very favourably a movement calculated to encourage volunteering the Committee of the Chamber considers any steps taken in that direction must, of necessity, be so entirely regulated by the convenience or otherwise to individual firms that it would appear to be almost beyond its province to make any recommendation on the subject, but it would venture to suggest to His Excellency the Governor the desirability of sanctioning the publication of the correspondence to give these firms the opportunity of considering the suggestions made.

   The suggested holidays are already more than partially observed, and the Committee does not think that private firms would be found opposed to these becoming general.

I have the honour to be,
