The following report by Surgeon-Major WESTCOTT, A.M.S., on the subject of the existence of Plague in Tung Kun is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 10th January, 1895.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

(From Surgeon-Major S. Westcott, A.M.S., to The Colonial Secretary, Hongkong.)

HONGKONG, 7th January, 1895.

SIR,-I have the honour to report that I proceeded to Tung Kun on the 27th ultimo to investigate the disease stated to be prevalent there.

I was accompanied from Canton by Mr. F. S. A. BOURNE, the Vice-Consul at that port. At Tung Kun on the 31st December, I interviewed Dr. KUHNE of the Rhenish Mission, who had been resident at the Mission Hospital for the last seven years, and he informed me

A

1. That the Chinese Doctor at Shek Lung, a large town on the East river, 8 miles N. W. of Tung Kun, was at Tung Kun on the 29th November, 1894, and reported that he had heard about several cases of plague in Shek Lung, and that he had had one case under his own treatment which died in 3 days, the axillary glands being affected.

2. That he had heard from his Chinese teacher that in Tung Kun on the 3rd December a boy 10 years old came to the Hospital grounds from the country to see some friends, and in the evening he became ill and died on the following night from high temperature and syncope. His grandmother, living in the same house, became ill 6 days afterwards, and on the second day of the disease, she sent to borrow Dr. KUHNE'S clinical thermo- meter, which, on return, registered 102°; she died on the third day and her family circulated a report that the Doctor's thermometer had caused her axillary glands to

swell.

3. That on the afternoon of the 10th December a Chinaman was selling sugar and water in

the streets, and in the evening he was dead of "season disease."

4. That in one street near the N. gate six people in one family died at about the same date. 5. That he (Dr. KUHNE) had noticed that many rats died in the Hospital premises two

months ago.

6. That on the 16th December the scavenger reported that 30 coffins passed one of the gates.

in one day.

Dr. KUHNE being unable to give any evidence of the existence of plague at the present time, kindly placed his Chinese Medical Assistant, and Chinese Teacher, (who is also a medical practitioner in the town) at my disposal, and I sent these men and also the native of the town, who was sent from

- Hongkong with me, to try to discover if the inhabitants were dying in unusual numbers from any disease, and I offered a reward of $10 to any one who would show me a case of plague in any stage, or a body dead of the disease. They reported next day that they were unable to discover any case, and that no unusual sickness prevailed.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 12TH JANUARY, 1895.

   In the meantime I called on several native doctors in different parts of the town, and sent for others to come to me, and their evidence was to the effect that there had been some cases of bubonic plague during the last 6 weeks, but that the latest they had heard of occurred about 10 days ago; they could not take me to see a case, but were willing to keep any affected person, who might consult them at their dispensaries, for me to see, if I would wait in the neighbourhood, and pay for a coffin should the patient die after seeing me.

   In consequence of the report from Shek Lung, I visited that town with Dr. KUHNE, Mr. BOURNE and Interpreter QUINCEY. At the place of embarkation on the N. of the town, I was an object of interest to the crowd of boatmen, &c.; they were evidently inspired by some fear, as one of them shouted-"Don't go too near, as he will drag you to him, and cut you in two," this being the treatment accorded to their countrymen by the foreign doctors in Hongkong, according to pamphlets circulated in this and other towns, during the epidemic in Hongkong.

   At Shek Lung, a large, dirty, and overcrowded town, we were followed by a large crowd, principally of yelling children, and the demeanour of the inhabitants was sullen and unfriendly.

   On arrival at the house of Dr. MAK, the children were kept outside, but the men followed us .in, and insisted on remaining during the interview.

Dr. MAK, a Christian Chinese medical practitioner who was for 6 years First Assistant to Dr. KERR at the Mission Hospital at Canton, informed us that the case he had reported to Dr. KUHNE, was the only one he had had personal knowledge of, but that he heard that it still prevailed, and here he consulted his friends among the crowd, and stated that they were of the same opinion; but on going more deeply into this evidence, I concluded that it was of very little value, and I then offered a reward of $10 if any one would take Interpreter QUINCEY to see a case, but without result, so, as in the case of Tung Kun, I formed the opinion that it did not exist in epidemic form.

   I next made investigations along the delta from Tung Kun to Tai-ping-Hu, the last town on this route towards Hongkong, and found that plague did not exist. At Tai-ping-Hu, I learned that many persons returned from Hongkong during the epidemic and died, but they did not communicate the disease to others.

   At Canton and in Fatshan, a large town 10 miles S.W. of Canton, a few cases have been reported to exist by the intelligence officers of the Consulate as lately as 10 days ago, but no case can be discovered now.

The conclusions I draw from this enquiry are-

1. That there have been sporadic cases of the disease during November and part of December

in Canton, Fatshan, Shek Lung and Tung Kun.

2. That no cases have been found during the last fortnight by anybody.

3. That all those who reported the cases in December can find none now.

4. That it is evident that the poison lingers in the district, but whether it will again cause

an epidemic will depend on the sanitary surroundings and climatic conditions which it will encounter.

A

   The whole of the drains in Canton are cleaned every third year, and they have just been cleaned in accordance with this custom. The Chinese also attach much importance to the rain which has recently fallen, but it was evident after an inspection of the houses in the parts of Canton from which the greatest number of cases came last year, and of those in the other towns visited, that no reliance can be placed on their sanitary condition to ward off another epidemic should the other conditions be favourable.

   Many of the rumours of the prevalence of plague in various parts of the Province with which I dealt during my enquiry, on close investigation, have proved to be due to diseases other than plague, the confusion arising from the fact that the Chinese bave no specific nomenclature for bubonic plague, but employed the terms "Wen-yik" and "Shih-cheng" which embrace any suddenly fatal epidemic disease.

   In closing this report, I have the honour to bring to your notice the kind manner in which the mission was received by Dr. KUHNE and the great trouble he took to help us in every way.

   I also met with all possible help from Mr. BOURNE, the Vice-Consul at Canton; his knowledge of the country, people, and language enabled me to overcome many difficulties and to accomplish my mission in a very much shorter time than would otherwise have been necessary.

Interpreter W. QUINCEY was also a valuable assistant and displayed great intelligence and tact- in the performance of his duties.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your obedient Servant,

Hongkong, 7th January, 1895.

MONDAY, January 14. 9-12.

    The land was more profitably farmed as pasture than as ploughland. The wool which was thus grown gave employment sooner or later to the manufactures, which would absorb the surplus agricultural population, and capital which was before hoarded found a profitable investment in land. So too the wholesale dealer in other goods was enabled to purchase in cheap markets, and to keep his goods till be could sell them well, thus increasing the national wealth and equalizing prices. But the commencement of the system which is now accepted universally, but which then seemed merely the triumph of selfishness, and which could not work fully because attended by many erroneous notions which laid restrictions on the freedom of trade, could not fail to be attended with much misery.

Notice has been given that, on or about the 3rd December, the Huquang Winter Channel was to be marked and lighted during Low Water as follows:--

1. The Huquang and W. C. de Vries rocks were each to be marked by a common black painted spar buoy.

2. Two Range poles erected on the rocky shore (Chung-chih kuan) opposite the W. C. de Vries Rock one high and one low, the lower being the nearer to the Channel-will lead clear of the Huquang Rock, and give a nearly mid-channel course.

From the High Pole a 360° Red, Dioptric 6th Order Light, was to be exhibited from dark to daylight visible about 4 miles, and from the short pole an ordinary white anchor light. These lights will, when kept in a vertical line as stated above, lead clear of the Huquang Rock and give a nearly mid-channel course.

3. Two Range poles erected on the right bank of the river, opposite the Huquang Rock, one high and one low,-the lower being the nearer to the river-each pole carrying an ordinary white anchor light, will, when kept in a vertical line, lead clear of the W.

Her Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Empress of India, the Right Honourable John, Earl of Kimberley, Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, &c., &c., Her Britannic Majesty's Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs;

And His Majesty the Emperor of Japan, Viscount Aoki Siuzo, Junii, first class of the Imperial Order of the Sacred Treasure, His Majesty's Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary at the Court of St. James';

If such owners or agents are not on the spot, the same shall be delivered to the respective Consuls-General, Consuls, Vice-Consuls, or Consular Agents upon being claimed by them within the period fixed by the laws of the country, and such Consular officers, owners, or agents shall pay only the expenses incurred in the preservation of the property, together with the salvage or other expenses which would have been payable in the case of a wreck of a national vessel.

ARTICLE XVI.

Each of the High Contracting Parties may appoint Consuls-General, Consuls, Vice-Consuls, Pro- Consuls, and Consular Agents in all the ports, cities, and places of the other, except in those where it may not be convenient to recognize such officers.

 This exception, however, shall not be made in regard to one of the Contracting Parties without being made likewise in regard to every other Power.

 The Consuls-General, Consuls, Vice-Consuls, Pro-Consuls, and Consular Agents may exercise all functions, and shall enjoy all privileges, exemptions, and immunities which are, or may hereafter be, granted to Consular officers of the most favoured nation.

When such incorporation takes place the existing leases in perpetuity under which property is now held in the said Settlements shall be confirmed, and no conditions whatsoever other than those contained in such existing leases shall be imposed in respect of such property.

Protocol signed at London, July 16, 1894.

  THE Government of Her Majesty the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India, and the Government of His Majesty the Emperor of Japan, deeming it advisable in the interests of both countries to regulate certain special matters of mutual concern, apart from the Treaty of Commerce and Navigation signed this day, have, through their respective Plenipotentiaries, agreed upon the following stipulations:-

1. It is agreed by the Contracting Parties that one month after the exchange of the ratifications of the Treaty of Commerce and Navigation signed this day, the Import Tariff hereunto annexed shall, subject to the provisions of Article XXIII of the Treaty of 1858 at present subsisting between the Contracting Parties, as long as the said Treaty remains in force and thereafter, subject to the provisions of Articles V and XV of the Treaty signed this day, be applicable to the articles therein enumerated, being the growth, produce, or manufacture of the dominions and possessions of Her Britannic Majesty, upon importation into Japan. But nothing contained in this Protocol, or the Tariff hereunto annexed, shall be held to limit or qualify the right of the Japanese Government to restrict or to prohibit the importation of adulterated drugs, medicines, food, or beverages; indecent or obscene prints, paintings, books, cards, lithographic or other engravings, photographs, or any other indecent or obscene articles; articles in violation of patent, trade-mark, or copyright laws of Japan; or any other article which for sanitary reasons, or in view of public security or morals, might offer any danger.

  The ad valorem duties established by the said Tariff shall, so far as may be deemed practicable, be converted into specific duties by a Supplementary Convention, which shall be concluded between the two Governments within six months from the date of this Protocol; the medium prices, as shown by the Japanese Customs Returns during the six calendar months preceding the date of the present Protocol, with the addition of the cost of insurance and transportation from the place of purchase, production, or fabrication, to the port of discharge, as well as commission, if any, shall be taken as the basis for such conversion. In the event of the Supplementary Convention not having come into force before the expiration of the period fixed for the said Tariff to take effect, ad valorem duties in conformity with the rule recited at the end of the said Tariff shall, in the meantime, be levied.

In respect of articles not enumerated in the said Tariff, the General Statutory Tariff of Japan for the time being in force shall, from the same time, apply, subject, as aforesaid, to the provisions of Article XXIII of the Treaty of 1858 and Articles V and XV of the Treaty signed this day respectively.

  From the date the Tariffs aforesaid take effect, the Import Tariff now in operation in Japan in respect of goods and merchandize imported into Japan by British subjects shall cease to be binding.

In all other respects the stipulations of the existing Treaties and Conventions shall be maintained unconditionally until the time when the Treaty of Commerce and Navigation signed this day comes into force.

  2. The Japanese Government, pending the opening of the country to British subjects, agrees to extend the existing passport system in such a manner as to allow British subjects, on the production of a certificate of recommendation from the British Representative in Tokio, or from any of Her Majesty's Consuls at the open ports in Japan, to obtain upon application passports available for any part of the country, and for any period not exceeding twelve months, from the Imperial Japanese Foreign Office in Tokio, or from the chief authorities in the Prefecture in which an open port is situated; it being understood that the existing Rules and Regulations governing British subjects who visit the interior of the Empire are to be maintained.

  3. The Japanese Government undertakes, before the cessation of British Consular jurisdiction in Japan, to join the International Conventions for the Protection of Industrial Property and Copyright.

any

4. It is understood between the two High Contracting Parties that, if Japan think it necessary at time to levy an additional duty on the production or manufacture of refined sugar in Japan, an increased customs duty equivalent in amount may be levied on British refined sugar when imported into Japan, so long as such additional excise tax or inland duty continues to be raised.

Provided always that British refined sugar shall in this respect be entitled to the treatment accorded

to refined sugar being the produce or manufacture of the most favoured nation.

5. The undersigned Plenipotentiaries have agreed that this Protocol shall be submitted to the two High Contracting Parties at the same time as the Treaty of Commerce and Navigation signed this day, and that when the said Treaty is ratified the agreements contained in the Protocol shall also equally be considered as approved, without the necessity of a further formal ratification.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH FEBRUARY, 1895.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND MARCH, 1895.

  3. ATTENDANCE.-The minimum monthly attendance 85 in July contrasts sadly with the maximum 881 in April, which nearly equals the 890 of 1890. In the course of the year 403 boys were admitted, as against 308 in 1893; and of these, 56 entered in the second half of the year, as against 44 in the same period last year. This increased demand for admission, in spite even of an epidemic, may be viewed as an indication, that this college has not suffered in reputation.

  4. FINANCES.-It is specially disappointing to note the low figure, at which Revenue derivable from Fees stands. I have already reported to the Treasury that, in view of the $700 actual gain in the first five months of the year, and of the increased admissions above alluded to, there is no exaggeration in assuming $1,200 as the total increase, and $13,500 as the total revenue, that might naturally have been expected, had it not been for the Plague. The total loss in Fees due to this cause cannot be taken at less than $2,000, of which $1,181 is accounted for, by the amount remitted to boys, who were absent in the months of June and July, having left the Colony with their families, in the scare naturally engendered by the Plague. The balance, $800, may be attributed to the fees of six months unpaid by about 100 boys, who are in excess of the number of absentees in the corresponding months of last year. With a heavy loss of revenue and a terrible reduction in attendance, as observable in the fifth column, it is not a matter for surprise, that the Average Expense in the tenth column should appear disproportionate. The Table at the end of this report contains two additional items of expenditure, viz: Adjustment of Exchange in Crown Agents' Account, and Exchange Compensation paid to three masters, who accepted three shillings exchange for the dollar when on leave; these account for the increase in expenditure observable on last year.

5. BUBONIC PLAGUE.-On the 1st May, the absentee list, in accordance with normal conditions, was under 4% of the number on the monthly roll; but on account of the outbreak of the Plague over 42% were absent on June 1st, and on July 1st 96.5% were absent, exactly inverting the percentages of two months previously, when that was the precentage of attendance. From the end of May, the non-Chinese scholars, nearly to a boy, absented themselves; two little English boys in the Preparatory School were a bright exception, coming regularly till the College was closed. Of the Chinese boys, the Upper School boys deserve the most credit for regular attendance; for some time, the First Class formed the bulk of the total College attendance. As daily, dead bodies were carried out of streets in the vicinity of the College, and the smoke and smell of burning stuff, refuse from plague-stricken houses, were borne into the building from a spot not 50 ft. distant, the gradual nature of the exodus deserves praise rather than censure. It is difficult to ascertain with precision, how many of our boys succumbed to this disease. Eight deaths have been reported as due to this cause. Early in June two of our boys, living in quite different parts of the town, suddenly died of plague. So Man-chau was in school on Saturday, the 2nd, and reported dead and buried on Monday the 4th; on the same Monday, Leung Shi-chak was removed to hospital, and reported dead on the following day. As a consequence, 280 boys left, in the course of the week, and 120 more, before the close of the month. With rare exceptions, the boys observed the usual formalities, bringing their parents or guardians to apply for leave. On the 14th July, there were 48 boys for the 21 class-rooms instead of 832 as in May. His Excellency the Governor, under the circumstances permitted the vacation to begin a fortnight earlier than usual.

6. On re-opening on the 3rd September, 557 boys returned and by the end of the month, this number had risen to 625, not counting 37 boys newly admitted. I attribute this satisfactory return, of so large a number of boys, to the Governor's kind consideration, in remitting on account of the Plague, the arrears of fees due from boys who were absent in the months of June and July; for there can be no doubt that otherwise a considerable number would have stayed away on account of inability to pay such large lump sums as $12, $8 &c. As it is, 235 names were missing between May and September, as against 109 last year or an extra loss of 126 boys in the summer of 1894.

7. RETRENCHMENT.-Experience, as observable in connexion with the formation of a new department, or the extension of an old one, has shown that the expenses grow, in the first few years, to a considerable extent in excess of the original estimate. It is therefore to the credit of Dr. STEWART and Dr. ErTEL that their approval of my estimate in 1887 of the number of officers, and items of expenditure, required for the New Building has in no particular been subject to increase; for we cannot take into account, the general increase of 35% and 20% to the Civil Service, nor the item, English Books, where fall in silver has necessitated further adjustment; neither of which events could possibly have been foreseen. The Colonial Treasurer in his evidence before the Retrenchment Committee, said (p. 127) "When men become trained in Treasury work, they become very valuable. If a rush of prosperity comes to the Colony, several of my staff, some of whom are really intelligent men, may leave me at once for better pay" and this sentiment was echoed by other Heads of Department. The same argument applies with greater force to the trained Chinese Assistants of this establishment; if they continue to be underpaid, the old experience of their departure, when their services are most valuable, will again be felt. The onus of showing, that younger and more incompetent Chinese are suitable to be teachers of English, in fourteen of the twenty-one classes of this College, falls on those who dispute my position, which is, that Chinese teachers of ages ranging from 25 to 40, competent to teach a variety of English subjects, surely deserve higher salaries than young Chinese clerks five and ten years their junior, who are only required to copy or translate documents. It has however gravely been suggested to reduce the salaries of these masters which are already lower than those of copying clerks; this would certainly reduce expenditure, but render any chance of maintaining efficiency hopeless.

  8. DISTINGUISHED VISITORS.-Dr. GUSTAV OPPERT, Professor at Madras University, and Dr. DENNYS, Protector of Chinese in British North Borneo, both paid a visit and expressed great interest in the education given here. The latter paid us the highest compliment, by selecting after competitive examination, a First Class boy to accompany him back to Borneo, as clerk and interpreter in his own Department.

"

9. CHANGE IN THE CONSTITUTION OF THE COLLEGE.-On the 3rd September I received notice "that the Secretary of State had decided that all connection with the Education Department and Queen's College should cease, and that the College should be placed under the management of a Governing Body.' This was supplemented on the 6th December, by an explanation conveyed in an extract from the Secretary of State's Despatch, viz: "The change which is now being initiated has been devised in Dr. WRIGHT'S Own interests, as well as those of the school. It is an alternative to the existing system, which has been found to be unsatisfactory."

  10. NON-CHINESE CLASSES.-It was a pleasure to me to observe that the Retrenchment Committee (par. 136) share my opinion, that it is the duty of the College to make special provision for the education of such English and other non-Chinese boys as wish to enter. Two classes have been specially formed for their benefit, under the charge of English masters; but it will be only possible to maintain these, if the number of pupils does not fall below a minimum of 60 for the two classes combined. It rests therefore entirely with the parents to show their appreciation of the advantages specially devised for them. One well-known Government Official, by sending his two sons here, has broken through the prejudice, with which we have always had to contend viz: that the preponderance of Chinese scholars renders this place unsuitable for boys of other nationalities. In this connexion however it is not to be forgotten, that there is hardly a school in the Colony but has at length admitted Chinese, after starting with exclusively non-Chinese pupils. The two classes, above spoken of, are for convenience called from the position of their class-rooms, Class Ic. and IIc, but this gives an inaccurate impression of the standard of work. Each of these classes is divided into two sections. In Class Ic, only one boy took the papers of Class IA, the remainder of the Senior Section taking those of IB; while the Junior Section found Class II papers sufficiently difficult. Class IIc, took History, Geography and Composition with Class III, and the Seniors also worked Euclid and Algebra papers prepared for the same class; but in Arithmetic and Grammar, the Senior Section sat with Class IV, and the Junior with Class V. As a compensation for the time spent in Chinese by other classes, these two take Latin. To remove any misconception, and as an act of justice to the masters concerned, I have, this year, kept the four sections of the non-Chinese classes separate, distinguishing them as N1, N2, N3, N4. I must not omit to mention, that His Excellency the Governor has shown his sympathy with this movement, by relieving the Master in charge of the Senior Non-Chinese Class, Mr. MACHELL, of further study of Chinese, that he may devote himself more completely to developing this branch of the College, and continue without overstrain to himself to superintend the athletics of these boys.

11. OXFORD LOCAL EXAMINATIONS.-We paid 18 fees, but only 15 boys presented themselves, of whom eight obtained certificates, viz: three Seniors under 19 years of age, and five Juniors over 16 years of age. Of Special Subjects, 1 boy passed in Bookkeeping, 2 in Drawing, 2 in Physiography and 1 in Trigonometry. U HANG-KAM, who headed the Senior List in this place, was marked Good in Arithmetic, Shakespeare and Algebra; and FOK CHI-YAN, who took the same position amongst the Juniors, obtained the same mark in Arithmetic and Shakespeare. Of the eight boys who obtained Certificates, 4 were marked Good in Arithmetic, 4 in Shakespeare, 2 in Geography and 1 in Algebra. Taken as a whole the result is very satisfactory, the percentage of passes as compared with last year being 53: 58. There is a marked improvement in the work of the non-Chinese boys, though the Chinese still lead.

   12. ANGLO-CHINESE CLASS.-The number of boys examined in these divisions dwindled from 58 in 1889 to 12 in 1893. When then in March last I found only two boys presenting themselves to form a class, I first enquired of the parents the cause of their sons' absence. and then reported to the Government the extinction of the Anglo-Chinese Class. The reasons alleged by the parents appeared to be valid, and may be classified in the following manner, (1) several boys are under ten years of age, and it is objected that the study of Chinese, in addition to English is too severe a strain; (2) others profess to attend classes for improvement in their own languages, Portuguese, Arabic &c; (3) others live out at East Point, and find it impossible or unhealthy to remain from 8 A.M. till 5 P.M. without a solid meal. Of the 103 non-Chinese boys on the Roll, 71 are in the Upper School and therefore exempted by Government Order, there remain then 32 to form the Anglo-Chinese Class, but 20 of these are about 8 or 9 years of age.

13. THE STAFF.-I am happy to report an exceptionally good Bill of Health. Mr. MAY, the Second Master, went on leave in April, after the completion of six years' service, and Mr. DEALY is acting for him, proving a very energetic and satisfactory substitute. Mr. BARLOW also went on leave, on a plea of urgent private affairs. Mr. JONES was temporarily transferred to the Magistracy, as Acting First Clerk. We were therefore, for eight months, short of the services of three masters. consequent necessary changes put the First Chinese Assistant in charge of the Preparatory School, Mr. WAN of Class IIB, the highest Upper School Class yet entrusted to a Chinese Assistant, and deprived one of the Lower School Classes of the advantage of an English Master, a luxury we can

 only afford when the complete English Staff is on duty. Of the Chinese Assistants, four were employed in the Upper School, instead of two, as last year. Messrs. LUK, WAN, NG and LEUNG were in charge of Classes IIIA, IIB, IIIc, and III?, respectively, and their percentages, 89, 88, 92 and 92, compare very favourably with the average results of this year. My recommendation of increased salaries for Chinese Assistants is thus strongly supported by further experience.

   14. HALF-YEARLY EXAMINATIONS.-In 1894, for the second year running this important factor in the general success of the year was forcibly held in abeyance, on account of the general exodus from the Colony. A considerable proportion of the failures among boys educationally weak, is due to the absence of this check and its attendant advice.

?

   15. RECREATION.-Drill still continues, but unless it can be put in charge of a duly qualified instructor, it not only entails waste of time and money, but as conducted last year is positively prejudicial to the maintenance of discipline. The following report from Mr. MACHELL on Recreation may prove of interest.

"The sports have developed an organisation, that bids fair to stand. Boys now play "regularly and heartily, who looked askance at athletics two years ago. The Cricket team of masters and boys is thus far undefeated. Football as played in the College "grounds is an expensive amusement; three balls are used up monthly, though diligently "repaired and well kept. For a month prior to commencement of Annual Examination, "the verandahs of Hollywood Crescent and the space outside the lower West Gate were "thronged with spectators of the 4 to 5 P.M. games. Lost balls were kicked back with "a zest which produced great merriment when a too zealous coolie unwisely kicked "squarely at the ball with his bare toes. There are two or three privately owned "cricket sets and at least three independent football owners. These occupy the lower "ground during the longer periods of recess &c. No accident has marred play, though The drill has been very "keen rivalry exists between the first and second teams. "unsatisfactory. A broken succession of tactless and incompetent instructors wearied "the boys beyond measure, and they were only kept from openly resenting the tiresome "bungling by my frequent presence at and personal conduct of the drill. The Cadet "Section is kept up. Their uniform 'is only fitted for summer wear. Five of the

"Queen's College Cadets are now Volunteers. The formation of a Chinese Cadet Corps "was, owing to the Plague and the resulting lee-way in class-work, out of the question. "The entire question of recreation is beset with difficulties. The College grounds are "fairly large but sharply and strongly marked off into Southern, Central and Northern "areas respectively. Football and Cricket are possible only in the Northern area, and "then only at a costly expenditure of material. The Valley is distant (a serious matter "when time is short and many of the boys poor) and no proper site can be uninterruptedly "used. Bowrington Plantation will provide sites shortly, but the distance must always prove a drawback. Where one master only organises and regularly attends sports it "is very uphill work. The mere playing, on invitation, in an important match, is "kindly but useless from any sustaining and developing standpoint."

   16. ANNUAL EXAMINATION.-Two courses were open to me, in conducting the examination this year.

    Either to set easier papers, and report that this course was adopted on account of the disorganised year's work; or to adhere to the usual severe standard, and claim lenient judgment on the same plea. I preferred the latter course, in the interests of comparative statistics, which would become valueless with an uncertain standard. The total number examined was 587, of whom 520 or 83 per cent. passed, i.e. a loss of 5 per cent. on last year, though in 1894 we had only three-quarters of a school year; a result which cannot be viewed as despicable. The three sections of the College are thus represented :-

From the above figures it is clear, that the Lower School has suffered most, and this was reasonably to be expected. As I have above reported, the Upper School was more steady in attendance during the Plague while the Preparatory, being usually examined on a half-year's work, was not much affected by that calamity. With the exception of Arithmetic, Geography and History, the general percentages of subjects are fairly up to the mark. The figures obtained in Colloquial, Reading and Latin exceed last year's. The fatally small percentages in some classes in a few subjects is the result of the presence of idly disposed or less mentally robust scholars, who naturally found it more difficult to recover lost time. I think that the masters deserve credit for their steady application in the face of peculiarly depressing circumstances, while some of them are entitled to special commendation for results hardly inferior to the average year.

18. REMARKS ON INDIVIDUAL SUBJECTS.

   Reading. Some advance even on last year. An attempt to develop better modulation of the voice, in all classes including non-Chinese would produce further improvement.

Colloquial.-Highly creditable; the conyersation in the topmost classes ranging freely over a variety of unforeseen topics surprised me by the amount of intelligence displayed in the answers, and knowledge of general subjects outside the class routine.

Dictation.-Fairly up to the average. Considerable improvement in Ia.

   Composition.-Excellent results. Considerable acquaintance with English idiom is manifested. More drilling however is required, as good papers are often marred by careless mistakes, which the writers themselves should be capable of correcting.

   Grammar.-Makes but a poor show. I gather from the mistakes in parsing and analysis, thas masters do not generally pursue the healthy custom of drawing attention to grammatical difficultits that occur in the course of a reading lesson. These impromptu studies in grammar are the mote impressive and effective that can be given.

History-Generally very good. In the three sections of Class III there was too great evidence of memoriter work, which probably accounts for the poverty of the answers, which were largely unconnected with the questions.

Arithmetic.-Generally very weak.

Algebra.-Considerable improvement in the three sections of the First Class, and excellent work

in III. B.C.

Euclid.-Excellent in IIA; still terribly poor among non-Chinese,

Geography.-Poor results in all, but the five sections of the first two classes. Shakespeare.-Admirable work on a paper perhaps stiffer than last year.

Translations from and into Chinese.-Maintain their average good standard.

   Latin. Taking into account the shortness of the school-year the papers of all three sections deserve very considerable praise. In N1, N2 the translations from Casar and parsing are weak. I also fail to understand, why boys in N3. after one year's study should have a better knowledge of the use of case, than boys in N2. after two years' work. However the failure of last year in this subject is amply atoned for by the progress observable in 1894.

Book-Keeping.-Taken by Mr. JAMESON, in the absence of Mr. BARLOW, is quite equal to last

year's work.

General Intelligence.-Universal collapse, with the exception of Ia.

   Chemistry.-Had to be omitted from examination, as irregular attendance utterly marred the prospect of success in a weekly subject which requires steady application.

Mensuration.-One boy took this subject with Latin as substitutes for Translation papers from and into Chinese to enable him to compete for the Morrison Scholarship, in IA. He did a very good paper; and was only 62 marks behind the total 1303 (out of 1500) obtained by the successful

  The following Report of the Superintendent of Victoria Gaol for 1894, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 26th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 28th February, 1895.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART, Acting Colonial Secretary.

-

No. 57.

VICTORIA GAOL, SUPERINTENDENT'S OFFICE, HONGKONG, 28th January, 1895.

  SIR,-I have the honour to forward for the information of His Excellency the Governor the Annual Report on the Victoria Gaol for 1894.

2. The total number of admissions was 3,913 of which number 753 had been previously convicted. The number of old offenders admitted during the last two years is nearly 49 per cent. less than in 1892.

  3. The daily average number confined in the Gaol was 455 as compared with 458 in 1893. During the months of July, August and September, the daily average number of prisoners was greatly reduced owing to the effect on the Colony of the epidemic of bubonic plague. The numbers for those three months were 401, 398 and 404 respectively. The lowest number in Gaol on any one day was 373 on the 11th August, but as the epidemic disappeared the number increased till the daily total reached 539 on the 10th December.

  4. There were 5,120 offences against prison discipline committed during the year being 11.27 offences to each prisoner as compared with 11.15 in 1893.

5. The sanitary state of the Gaol was good. There were 3 cases of bubonic plague, the first case being noticed on the 21st May. The prisoner who was discharged on the afternoon of that day had been 2 days in Gaol. In the second case the prisoner was admitted to Gaol on the 5th June, In the third case the prisoner was admitted to hospital on the 8th and was released on the 14th June.

was admitted to Gaol on the 12th June, was admitted to hospital on the 20th and was released on the 21st June. The Gaol Medical Officer informs me that he is of opinion that in no case was the disease contracted in the Gaol. All prisoners were subjected to a searching medical examination on admission before they were told off to cells and every precaution was taken to prevent the disease from spreading. 6. Attention has been directed during the year to the very large number of prisoners on light labour by order of the Medical Officer. The daily average number of these prisoners was 105 or about 23 per cent. of the prisoners in Gaol. This is a very large proportion and under such conditions the Gaol becomes an asylum.

?

7. The amount paid into the Treasury during the year on account of industrial labour was $383.33 less than in 1893. This is due to the decreased profit on the oakum sold owing to the further increased cost of paper stuff.

8. The daily average number of females was 14. The want of proper accommodation for female prisoners has been severely felt.

9. The record of casualties in the staff shows that 48 third class Turnkeys, 4 second class Guards and 1 Nurse of the Female Prison joined during the year; 1 second class and 22 third class Turnkeys and 1 second class Guard were dismissed for misconduct; 2 third class Turnkeys deserted and the services of 7 third class Turnkeys were dispensed with being found useless; 2 second class and 9 third class Turnkeys, 1 first class and 1 second class Guard and 1 Nurse of the feinale prison resigned their appointments; I first class Turnkey was invalided; 1 third class Turnkey and 1 Indian Sergeant were pensioned; 1 third class Turnkey was transferred to the Sanitary Department; 2 second class and 4 third class Turnkeys were promoted to the rank of first and second class Turnkeys respectively and 1 second class Guard died.

 10. These figures I submit speak for themselves and clearly show how extremely unsatisfactory the condition of the staff was during the year and the necessity for placing it on a better footing without further delay. I was again obliged to ask for the services of some men of the garrison to act as turnkeys, but latterly I have been successful in obtaining a far superior class of men to fill the vacancies. I am glad to be able to report that this perpetual weeding out of the staff has been attended with good results and that the conduct of those serving at the end of the year has been generally satisfactory.

 11. The Warden J. JONES retired on a pension on the 1st August. He was an energetic and conscientious officer and served in the prison service for 21 years.

12. During the year I have reported fully as to the improvements which should be made in the Gaol. If my recommendations be approved I trust that by the close of the present year the yard space in the male prison will be increased and that proper accommodation will be provided for female prisoners.

13. I forward herewith the usual returns.

The Honourable

THE ACTING COLONIAL SECRETARY.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

H. B. LETHBRIDGE, Superintendent.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 75.

  The following Report by Messrs. CoODE SON & MATTHEWS on the Gap Rock Lighthouse, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 26th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 28th February, 1895.

GAP ROCK LIGHTHOUSE.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART, Acting Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG, 10th January, 1895.

  SIR, On the 21st November last, Mr. MATTHEWS, who was at that time engaged on professional business at Colombo, was informed by the Colonial Secretary of Ceylon that His Excellency the Governor of that Colony, had received a cablegram from His Excellency the Governor of Hongkong, enquiring if he (Mr. MATTHEWS) could visit the last named Colony for the purpose of inspecting the Gap Rock Lighthouse.

  2. Upon subsequently ascertaining that such an investigation would be practicable, having regard to other engagements previously fixed in the Cape Colony, Mr. MATTHEWS left, Colombo on 19th ultimo, arriving at Hongkong on 1st instant, where he was met by the Director of Public Works, who kindly furnished plans and reports giving full particulars of the Gap Rock Lighthouse and the works in connection therewith.

  3. Inspection of Gap Rock.-After perusing the last named papers Mr. MATTHEWS, accompanied by the Director of Public Works and the Harbour Master, visited the Gap Rock on 3rd instant, and very carefully examined the existing Tower with its lantern and apparatus, and also the European and Chinese Quarters. The peculiar configuration of the Rock with the Gap on the east and on the west faces was particularly noted as also the spur on the south-east end of the Rock and the effect of the same considered in the concentration of the sea and the diversion of the waves into the eastern gap during typhoon periods.

  4. Instructions for Report.-On 5th instant we received from you definite instructions relative to the points upon which our opinion is more particularly requested. These are-

(i) As to the establishment of a permanent lighthouse on the Gap Rock, having due regard

to the practicability of retaining, as far as possible, the existing buildings.

(ii) As to efficiently maintaining such buildings and the light, including staff and service

between Hongkong and the Gap Rock.

  5. General description of Rock, Lighthouse and Buildings.-Gap Rock is about 30 miles south- west of Hongkong. The centre of the Rock runs about north-east and south-west and is 440 feet in length in this direction. About midway there is a gap on either side of the centre, the inner ends of which converge until at the connecting ridge between the northern and southern portions the Rock is only 10 feet, or thereabouts, in width. The axis of the southern patch exten Is north-west and south-east and is 480 feet across in this direction. This section of the Rock consists of a mass rising to a height of 94 feet 6 inches above mean sea level, flanked on the south-east side by a spur of 220 feet in length. The north-east face of this spur is practically vertical for a height of 35 feet, whilst the adjacent face of the gap rises 75 feet, in a horizontal width of 50 feet. It follows from this extremely unfavourable configuration of the eastern gap and spur of rock that any seas from north- east around to south-east are concentrated into a funnel-shaped cavity, thereby intensifying even the abnormally severe waves which are associated with the occurrence of typhoons.

  6. The northern portion of the Rock is of much more favourable shape, being practically circular and of 280 feet in diameter at its base. It rises to 74 feet 6 inches above mean sea level, where there is a flat area of 100 feet by 80 feet. A small section of this Rock, at the northern portion of the plateau, rises to a further height of 10 feet.

  7. The gap on the western face between the two sections of the Rock is less exposed than that on the eastern side and is of a much more favourable shape. We do not therefore apprehend that any damage would arise to the Lighthouse and Buildings in consequence of the existence of this gap.

8. The landing place has been rightly fixed on the western face which is generally the side on which most shelter is to be found.

  9. The Lighthouse and Quarters for the Keepers, both European and Chinese, have been erected on the crest of the southern portion of the Rock, the Tower being about 60 feet from the eastern gap, to the exposure of which we have alluded.

10. The whole of the buildings are of brickwork faced with granite. They consist mainly of a Light Tower 32 feet 6 inches in height flanked by the European Quarters. This last named structure is of oblong form 38 feet in length, 18 feet in breadth, and 30 feet in height. It contains a base- ment having store and water tank, these being surmounted by two floors for the accommodation

J

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND MARCH, 1895.

153

of the Keepers. Northward of this last named block and connected therewith by a short passage, a further building has been erected for use by the Chinese Assistant Keepers and by the Telegraph Clerk. This structure is also of rectangular shape and measures 43 feet 6 inches in length, 20 feet 9 inches in width, and 22 feet in height.

11. The lantern and apparatus were prepared by Messrs. CHANCE BROTHERS, the former has flat glass and is not, in our opinion, of so good a form as the helical frame lantern with circular glazing, which has been adopted by the Trinity House. We may, however, observe, in this connection, that had the circular glazing been adopted, we are of opinion that the damage which was caused by the Typhoon of October 1893 would not have been averted. The apparatus is of the usual form for a light of this character. It is of the first order, dioptric, giving a flashing light at half minute intervals. The focal plane is 141 feet 8 inches above mean sea level and the light is visible, in clear weather about 20 miles.

12. The light was first shown in the early part of April 1892, and has since been continuously exhibited with the exception of one night, viz., on 2nd October, 1893, after the typhoon which caused the damage.

13. The cost of the Lighthouse, buildings, apparatus, etc., complete, exclusive of the expenditure incurred in the purchase of the attendant tug Fame, was $145,000.

14. Importance of Light.--The light on the Gap Rock is an extremely important one in the interests of navigation. It is "made" by vessels approaching Hongkong from the South, and also indicates the position of the islands and rocks to vessels leaving the Port southward. It is evident from a perusal of the papers that Gap Rock was decided upon as the best position for the light only after the most mature deliberation, strong reasons for fixing on this Rock for the then proposed lighthouse will be found in the letters from Commodore MORANT, R.N., and the Surveyor General, dated respectively 30th September and 20th November, 1886. Although therefore the Gap is unquestionably a most exposed site for a lighthouse and the configuration of the Rock, as we have pointed out, is unfavourable, still it would appear highly undesirable to remove the light to a less exposed position, in view of the strong reasons which were given in favour of erection on its present site, putting aside the prolonged negotiations which had to be conducted with the Chinese Government before the present position was definitely fixed, and which would have to be re-opened were it decided to remove the light to one of the larger adjacent islands.

15. Damage caused by typhoon of October 1833.-The Director of the Hongkong Observatory in a letter dated 20th October, 1893, pointed out that it was blowing with typhoon force at the Gap Rock from the morning of 2nd October, until the early morning hours on the 3rd, also that the typhoon was one of exceptional severity at the Gap and that the disaster was greatly intensified by the unusually great length of time the blow lasted. It would also appear from this letter that the Gap Rock lies very near the track of the worst typhoons that have been felt in the Colony.

 16. We have been informed by Mr. CHARLES NICHOLAS, the Senior Keeper, who was on the Rock when the typhoon occurred, that the chief damage was caused about noon on 2nd October; this consisted mainly in the breaking of four panes of lantern glass,inch in thickness, on the east side, three centre panels of the apparatus destroyed and one damaged; one upper panel of prisms broken and others slightly damaged, three bottom panels of prisms slightly fractured. Sundry damage was occasioned to the doors, windows and other details connected with the buildings as described in the report by the Director of Public Works dated 16th October, 1893.

17. In consequence of the damage to the lantern and apparatus no light was exhibited, as we have previously named, on 2nd October. On 3rd three lamps were rigged temporarily by the Keepers and the light was partially shown; it was only, however, on two or three days after the disaster, the flashes could be exhibited with approximate regularity.

that

 18. Upon reference to the log kept at the Rock, it would appear that from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on 2nd October, which covers the period when the damage occurred, the wind was from east, thus, when the typhoon was at its height, the gap and spur must have assisted in a material degree to produce the disaster, in consequence of the latter directing the seas into the funnel, which were then concen- trated and shot on to the Lighthouse and buildings.

 19. Although it is patent now from experience, what serious results can be produced by the spur and gap, we can fully realize the disadvantages under which the original designers of the Lighthouse and buildings laboured from the limited knowledge of the Rock which was all that was then available.

20. Upon the occurrence of the disaster, both the Director of Public Works and the Harbour Master adopted, with the least possible delay, such measures as were necessary for the reinstating and service of the light in an efficient manner, strong iron shutters have also been fitted to the most exposed of the windows in the quarters.

21. Whilst on this point we may observe, that it is not, in our opinion, practicable to adopt efficient measures for protecting the lantern glass during typhoons. Any protection of this kind which might be provided could not be fixed with such readiness and certainty as is imperative under the extremely adverse conditions which would prevail; and moreover if it were possible so to shield the lantern, the efficiency of the light to the mariner must inevitably be impaired thereby at a time when it is most required.

22. Typhoon of October last.-A typhoon, also of exceptional severity, occurred on 5th October last. On this occasion the direction of the wind during the height of the typhoon varied from cast to

:

154

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 2ND MARCH, 1895.

south-south-west. The full force of the seas therefore fell on the southern face of the Rock when the spur would act as a protection to the eastern gap. Mr. NICHOLAS, who was on the Rock during both typhoons, confirms, by his observations of the direction of the seas, the views we have above expressed. In consequence of the full force of the typhoon being more southerly in October last than during the previous typhoon, the circumstance is entirely due that practically no damage was produced by the former whilst the latter was peculiarly disastrous.

  23. Previous Reports. Two reports have been prepared by the Director of Public Works bearing on the foregoing subject, these documents are dated 16th and 25th October, 1893, respectively, and show clearly the extent of the damage caused by the typhoon and the conditions which attended the disaster.

  24. On 8th August last the Engineer to the Trinity Corporation, to whom the matter had been referred, reported, inter alia, that the Buildings offer great resistance to the sea and that in his opinion they are inadequate for such an exceptionally exposed position. The report concludes with the following paragraphs :---

"I am of opinion it would have been preferable had the Lighthouse been erected at the north "end of the Rock, as it will be seen from the formation of this site that it is well "protected and only broken water, to a harmless extent, could, at any time, have "surrounded a building so placed. The Tower should also, I consider, have been treated "as a Rock Lighthouse, constructed of cylindrical form and having a cylindrical lantern

as used in the Corporation service."

66

"A repetition of the damage recently experienced might not improbably be averted, by "filling the gully on the east side, previously referred to, and the removal of the cause- Iway at the end of the gully which would have the effect of easing the sea ove

the "Rock. I regret to state, however, that even if this were successfully carried out, "which would involve considerable expenditure, the safety of the existing Lighthouse "and premises would still remain a source of anxiety.'

RECOMMENDATIONS.

  25. Accompanying Drawings.-This report is accompanied by two drawings* marked No. 1 and No. 2 respectively.

  26. Drawing No. 1 shows a plan of the Gap Rock with contour lines at each 10 feet in height. These bring out the configuration of the Rock, as far as it is practicable to do so, although without an inspection, it is difficult to grasp the effect which the sea would have on the gaps and more particularly that on the eastern face. The sheet also shows by red colour the new position which we propose for the Lighthouse and the European Quarters.

  27. Drawing No. 2 shows general views of the New Tower and Quarters, from which their Scope and character and the mode of construction proposed to be adopted will be readily understood. The details indicated on this sheet are, of course, subject to modification by the Director of Public Works upon preparing the larger scale drawings from which the structures would be executed. This sheet also shows a longitudinal section whereon the new Lighthouse and works are coloured red, whereas those portions of the existing buildings which we consider should be removed are crossed by red lines.

:

  28. New Tower.-Upon referring to the drawings it will be observed, that we propose to build a new Tower on the northern portion of the Rock. It would be a cylindrical structure, generally of 14 feet internal.diameter, the walls being of massive proportions and consisting of brickwork faced with granite. It would rest on a heavy base and sub-base of granite and concrete, con.ing well within the edge of the plateau at the crest of the Rock to which reference has been made. The Tower would carry a new lantern of cylindrical form, furnished with helical framing and circular glazing, all of the most recent type as adopted by the Trinity Corporation. The existing apparatus would be re-fixed in the new Tower, so that the character of the light would remain unchanged. Efficient arrangements would have to be adopted for the exhibition of a temporary light during the carrying out of the modifications. The focal plane of the apparatus, when re-fixed, would be 150 feet above mean sea level, as compared with 141 feet 8 inches as at present, a modification, which whilst necessary for construction purposes, would not exercise any material effect on the light.

29. New Quarters for Europeans.-To the north-west of the new Tower and abutting thereon, we propose to erect quarters for three European Keepers. The building would be one story only in height and would rest on a lower base corresponding with that which carries the Tower. Underneath the floors a large tank would be provided for the storage of fresh water caught from the roofs. The accommodation afforded by the new quarters would be practically the same as that now provided with regard to space and air, but the walls would be much heavier and the block of buildings placed on the lee side of the Tower facing Ladrone Islands and the mainland, where they would be in shelter. 30. Having regard to the heat during the summer season, when the day temperature within the existing buildings is from 86° to 88°, we are opinion that external quarters for the Keepers are in this case imperative, as distinguished from quarters within Rock Towers as provided at home, where the heat is less severe. Moreover, in this case no disadvantage will arise, or source of weakness result, from the adoption of external quarters of the character suggested and shown on the drawings.

31. Removal of Existing Buildings.-The existing Lighthouse Tower, as also the block of build- ings abutting thereon, would be removed to the level of the ground floor, at which level a new and substantial flat roof would be provided, so that water may be collected therefrom and from the other block of buildings, and discharged into the existing Tank, which lies under the present quarters of the European Keepers. It will be observed from the section on drawing No. 2, that when the build- ings have been removed as proposed, no obstacle will be presented to the free exhibition of the new light. 32. The connecting passage between the European and Chinese quarters would also be removed, but not the block of buildings constituting the last named quarters and the telegraph room. We propose that these buildings, the roof of which is at such a level as not to obstruct the new light seaward, should remain intact. During typhoons, the Chinese Assistants would, when necessary, for the two or three days when storms prevail, be housed in one of the rooms of the Tower itself.

   33. New Landing Place.-As considerable difficulty and not a little danger sometimes attends landing on and departure from the Rock, we are of opinion that a second landing place, furnished with a derrick, might with advantage be provided to the southward of the existing landing, in the position. suggested by Captain RUMSEY. From this new landing a zig-zag path would have to be formed up the face of the Rock, leading to the present causeway.

   34. General remarks with regard to the proposal.-It is to us a subject of extreme regret, that we have been unable to put forward any project for adoption which involves the maintenance of the existing Tower and the European Quarters. We concur in the views expressed by the Engineer to the Trinity Corporation, that the north end of the Rock is the proper site for the Tower and that as long as the Lighthouse and buildings remain in their present position, they will prove a source of anxiety and expense. In a matter of such moment there ought, in our view, to be no uncertainty with regard to the satisfactory and continuous exhibition of the light. If it sometimes fails when most required, viz., during storms, instead of being a means of safety, it might become a positive source of danger to the mariner. This is so well recognized at home, that no expense is spared to remedy proved defects in the lighthouse service around the coasts of Great Britain, and we would urge that a similar policy is the only satisfactory one to pursue in the present instance.

   35. We have carefully considered both on the Rock, and subsequently, if the difficulties attendant on this case could be removed, to the requisite extent, by filling up the eastern gap, so as to ease the run of the sea therein. We are of opinion, after an inspection of the site and an examination of the configuration and character of the rocks, that the difficulties attendant upon the execution of such a slope would be exceptionally great, particularly at the toe where some work below low water level would be required. We consider that the cost of such a slope, including the formation of the toe, would exceed that of the execution of the proposals which we have put forward for adoption. We also entertain considerable doubt, as to whether the toe could be permanently executed in such an exposed position, the rocks at this spot being waterworn to a glassy surface sloping outwards. For the foregoing reasons we much regret that we are unable to devise any satisfactory form of treatment for the dissipation of the seas falling into the eastern gap.

   36. Estimate. It is not practicable to arrive at more than an approximate estimate of the cost of the proposed works in consequence of the difficulties attendant upon the landing of the men and materials, and the extent to which the operations will be governed by the seasons. We believe, however, that an expenditure of $139,000 will be found sufficient for the satisfactory execution of the works proposed.

   37. As to the maintenance of the Buildings and the Light.-With reference to the second head in your letter of 5th instant, we would recommend that the services of the present European Keepers be retained, or that other experienced men from the Trinity service be engaged in lieu of them on the expiration of their agreements, provided suitable arrangement cannot be made with the existing Keepers or that they may be unwilling to remain. In such an exposed position, where as in the case of the typhoon of October 1893, the Keepers may be required to act on their own responsibility, it is most important that only experienced Europeans should be in charge. The Chinese Assistants would, we take it, continue to be employed as hitherto.

   38. With regard to the services of a Tug for the relief and provisioning of the Keepers, the conveyance of stores, and the making of inspections, etc., although, of course, it is a matter of consider- able importance, that adequate provision in these respects should be made, it appears to us that, this is a question which can be better dealt with by the Harbour Master, and with reference to which he will, no doubt, be glad to furnish such information as may be desired.

   39. Conclusion.-In conclusion, we have to express our thanks to the Director of Public Works and the Harbour Master for the assistance they so courteously rendered in the making of our inspection and subsequent thereto. Our thanks are especially due to Mr. COOPER for the readiness with which he has at all times aided us and for the assistance rendered by his staff in the preparation of the accompanying drawings and the Bill of Quantities upon which the foregoing estimate is based.

We have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your obedient Servants,

The Honourable

THE ACTING COLONIAL SECRETARY.

BUOYAGE OF HAINAN STRAITS.

    Notice is hereby given that the Riversdale Rock, which lies to the South-eastward of Hainan Head with Single Palm bearing S. 69 W., magnetic, distant about 18 cables, and has a depth of 34 fathoms on it at low water of spring tides, is now marked by a Black Conical Buoy surmounted by a black triangular cage.

    The buoy is moored in 91?2 fathoms, about 11?2 cables to the North-eastward of the rock, and must be left on the port hand by vessels entering the straits from the eastward.

The Magpie Rock Buoy has been removed.

DIRECTIONS.

    With the Riversdale Rock Buoy in the position above described and the Hainan Head Bank Buoy and Hainan Reef Buoys in their advertised positions, vessels using the South Channel should steer to pass the two former buoys at about 3 cables, taking care to guard against being set towards the shore, and remembering that it is safe to borrow towards the banks on the starboard hand-of which the lead, which should be kept going, will give warning,-while on the other side the bottom is rocky and uneven and the lead gives no warning. The Hainan Reef Buoy may be rounded at a distance of 1 cable or more at discretion.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH MARCH, 1895.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.--No. 94.

193

The following Report of the Captain Superintendent of Police for 1894, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 12th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 15th March, 1895.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

No. 29.

POLICE OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 31st January, 1895.

SIR,-I have the honour to submit for the information of His Excellency the Governor the criminal statistics and the report on the Police Force for the

year 1894.

2. The statistics shew a decrease as compared with the return of last year of 5.99 per cent. in the total of all cases reported to the Police.

In the sub-division of these cases into serious and minor offences, there appears a decrease as compared with last year of 5.50 per cent. in the former and of 6.25 per cent. in the latter category.

   3. Seven cases of murder came under the notice of the Police. The first occurred at the Kowloon camp where a sergeant of the Hongkong Regiment was shot by a private of the same corps. The culprit was convicted and hanged.

   The second occurred during the clan disturbances, noticed further on, which occurred in March last. The victim was shot in broad daylight in Hillier Street while carrying some merchandise. The murderer made good his escape.

   The third case was a somewhat mysterious one. A woman who lived with her husband in a matshed at the Coffee Plantation was found dead on the top of Caroline Hill near the cemetery there. The body was so decomposed that it was only identified by the clothes upon it. The husband was arrested and tried for her murder but acquitted. There is little doubt that the woman was unfaithful to her husband, and it is probable that on that account it was more than usually difficult to obtain evidence in the case from the Chinese in the neighbourhood.

In the fourth case the victim was a boat-woman who was found dead in her boat near Shau-ki-wan. She was reputed to have some few dollars in her possession and it is probable that her boat was hired and taken out of reach of assistance by some ruffians who proceeded to rob the woman and then decamped into Chinese territory. There were no marks of violence on the body, and the doctor who made the post mortem examination gave it as his opinion that failure of the heart due to shock was the cause of death.

   In the fifth case Indian police constable No. 575 AMER SINGH was shot while endeavouring to arrest one of a gang of robbers who were surprised while robbing a shop in Winglok Street.

At the same time a Chinese, coolie who was passing in the street was also shot dead.

   One of the robbers was arrested on the spot by District Watchman PUN HING, while a second who was no doubt the man who fired the shots which took such fatal effect was captured on the Praya while running away from Head District Watchman LAM ON, by a European constable and an Indian police sergeant.

   Before he was secured he threw something into the harbour, and a revolver, of the same pattern as that found on his companion and as one left in the shop by another of the gang, was picked up by a diver at the spot pointed out by the Police.

   In the meantime the rest of the gang to the number of 4 or 5-it is uncertain which --escaped by the back door of the premises which opens on to the Praya. One of them was stopped by two Chinese police detectives while running not far from the scene of the robbery and arrested as he could give no satisfactory account of himself.

   Other two were arrested next morning in an opium divan. The three men were identified as having taken part in the robbery.

   The trial was not concluded till the current month. The first two prisoners have been found guilty of murder and sentenced to death, and the last three of robbery for which they have been condemned to 14 years' imprisonment.

   In the sixth case a Chinese police constable was shot in the Chinese mess-room at the Central Station by an Indian constable who, after firing several more shots in the compound, turned his rifle upon himself and committed suicide.

No motive is assignable for his shooting the Chinese constable.

}.

194

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH MARCH, 1895.

   4. Twenty-nine cases of robbery with violence appear in the returns. They comprise 9 highway robberies, 9 gang robberies, 9 street robberies, and 2 robberies which cannot be classed under those

three heads.

The following is a brief summary of these cases:

?,

Highway Robberies.

1. On the 10th of January a man was attacked by four men on the road between Shau-ki-wan

and Stanley and robbed of money and clothing to the value of $3.00.

2. On the 15th of March an English maid on the Kennedy Road was robbed by two men of

her watch and chain.

3. On the 12th of May a man was robbed by a man on the Aberdeen and Stanley Road of

money and clothing; value $2.60.

4. On the 13th of May a man was robbed by another on the Rifle Range, Kowloon, of a bundle

of clothing; value $6.00.

5. On the 1st of June three men robbed a Chinese woman on the Shau-ki-wan Road of $72.00. One of the robbers was arrested by the woman's jinricksha coolie, convicted and sentenced to 12 months' hard labour.

6. On the 18th of June one of the other two men was arrested by the Police, convicted and sentenced to 12 months' hard labour. These two cases are really therefore one and the same robbery.

7. On the 18th of June a man was robbed by two men on the Pokfulam Road of a watch and

a piece of cloth; total value $4.00.

8. On the 22nd of October two cattle dealers were robbed of $46.00 on the Kowloon Road

by five men one of whom was armed with a sword.

9. On the 19th of November a gardener from Tai Tam Tuk was attacked and robbed on the Stanley and Aberdeen Road by three men one of whom was armed with a sword. One of the robbers was subsequently arrested and committed for trial. The case was referred back to the Magistrate and the prisoner was finally discharged. All of the above robberies took place during the hours of daylight.

Gang Robberies.

1. At 12.30 A.M. on the 12th of January six men, some of whom were armed with knives,

entered a matshed at Tsat Tsz Mui and stole clothing to the value of $16.00.

2. On the 26th of January at 9.30 P.M. two men entered No. 12, Cheung Sau Lane, gagged the only occupant-a boy of 14 years---and stole a box containing clothing valued at $74.00.

3. On the 23rd of March at 1.30 A.M. six men, some of whom were armed with swords, entered a matshed at Wong Chuk Hang near Aberdeen tied up and gagged the occupants and stole property to the value of $4.00.

4. On the 8th of September four men, one of whom was armed with a revolver and another

with a sword, entered No. 35, Nullah Lane, and stole clothing valued at $13.00.

5. At 8.30 P.M. on the 10th of September four men, one armed with a revolver and one with a sword, entered No. 102, Queen's Road West, tied up the occupants and stole clothing to the value of $13.00.

6. At 10 A.M. on the 11th of September three men entered a matshed at Deep Water Bay

tied up the occupants and stole property to the value of $5.00.

7. On the 5th of October at 7 P.M. seven men, armed with revolvers, entered No. 12, Jervois Street, tied up the occupants and stole clothing, jewellery and money to the value of $740.00. This was the night of the severe typhoon.

8. At noon on the 24th of October three men entered No. 5, Tang Loi Lane, during the absence of the master of the shop, threw pepper in the eyes of the only person on the premises-a tailor--and stole $425.00.

9. On the 12th of November at 7.30 P.M. six men, armed with revolvers, entered No. 10,

Winglok Street, tied up the occupants and stole $1,800.00.

   The robbery at No. 156, Winglok Street, occurred on the 22nd of November, but as all the prisoners were first indicted for murder the case is recorded as one of murder in the statistics.

Street Robberies.

I regret to say that an English maid was the object of the first of these robberies. On the 18th of January last at 3 P.M. while walking on the Bonham Road she was seized by a man who tried to possess himself of her bangles and not succeeding in this attempt snatched her umbrella and ran away.

The remaining eight cases bear no feature of special importance. With one exception, that of a European sailor who was robbed of a pocket book containing papers and $2.50 in money while under the influence of liquor, the robberies were committed in the Chinese quarter of the town on Chinese and the amounts stolen varied from $1.00 to $11.00.

On the 14th of October a seaman was arrested at Yaumati for robbing his father of $2,700. He formed one of the crew of his father's fishing junk and he poisoned the evening meal of rice with datura alba, and while his father, sister and brother were lying stupified with the drug he stole the large sum of money mentioned. He was convicted and sentenced to 6 years' imprisonment.

I have drawn attention in a separate report to this case and to two others of attempted poisoning, and have suggested the desirability of placing restrictions upon the sale of poisons in this Colony.

The remaining case occurred on board the s.s. Tantalus: one Chinese fireman robbing another of $25.00. The fireman was arrested, but the case which arose out of a quarrel was dismissed.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH MARCH, 1895.

6. The most unsatisfactory feature in the year's returns is the increase in the number of cases of robbery with violence, and especially the very serious nature of the gang robberies at 12, Jervois Street; 10, Winglok Street; and at 56, Winglok Street.

With regard to the increase in number of these cases it is right to mention that during the five months from the 1st of May to 30th September when from 5 to 10 per cent. of the Force was engaged on Plague work there occurred thirteen cases as against six during the same period in 1893. However, the three most serious cases occurred after the men had all returned to regular duty. The winter months are, of course, the most dangerous; and it is worthy of note that it is reported from Canton that gang robberies of a similar nature have been very rife there this winter.

I should also point out the extraordinary ease with which these robberies can be effected.

In the Jervois Street and the two Winglok Street cases for instance, the inmates of the shops out- numbered the robbers by more than two to one, and yet in each case they never offered the slightest resistance or endeavoured to communicate the alarm to persons in the street or their neighbours.

The robbers, of course, rely on this passivity and are enabled, unless some accident happens, as at 56, Winglok Street, to carry out one of these raids under the very noses of the Police.

But it is not only in the presence of robbers that the shopman's courage fails him. In the second Winglok Street case the inmates of the shop although they admitted being able to identify the robbers absolutely refused to accompany the Police in the search for the men.

One of their number was at last induced to lend his services, but it is not too much to say that he was virtually compelled to acquiesce. After 2 hours' search he asked to go home, and it was necessary to practically detain him in a Police Station all night lest he should not be forthcoming for the morning

search.

After the arrest of the five men concerned in the robbery at 56, Winglok Street, it was of course desired to ascertain, if possible, whether they were the same gang that had robbed No. 10 in the same

street.

The inmates of the latter shop were asked to go up to the Gaol and look at the men and they emphatically refused to do so.

There are two remedies to prevent the recurrence of such outrages as these robberies constitute. One, of course, is to keep the Police Force up to its full strength as far as possible

possible throughout the year, and the other is to perfect the Chinese detective branch of the Force drawing at the same time all the assistance possible from the District Watchmen's Force which should be brought into closer touch with the Police.

   7. I referred in my report of last year to the number of larcenies by servants. I regret to say that there was no diminution in this particular form of offence during 1894.

   Nineteen watches were reported as stolen, and of these only four were recovered by the Police although no trouble was spared to trace the property the great bulk of which is, I think, taken into the interior of China and either melted down or sold to local magnates.

   Even when the Police succeed in tracing one of these thieves to his native village it does not follow as a consequence that the Chinese authorities will assist much in recovering the property.

   Take, for example, the case of the $225.00 and gold watch stolen from Mr. H. M. MEHTA by his chair coolie. Although the watch had actually been seen by an emissary of the Police in a certain village, the Chinese officials failed to recover it although after five months' correspondence they did produce half of the number of dollars.

   I suggested registration of servants last year as a safeguard against these larcenies, and I have since recommended that licensing of servants be made compulsory by law. I am aware that the law which formerly existed on this subject became a dead letter. But the only reason for that was the apathy of residents in this Colony.

   It was too much trouble to spend ten minutes in registering a servant before engaging him, and so a boy who has robbed his former master or a chair coolie who has misconducted himself and been dismissed find employment probably next door where they possibly repeat the same offences.

   I regard the licensing of private chair coolies at any rate as a most desirable and even necessary measure in the interests of law and order. The Hongkong private chair coolie is one of the most impudent and unruly members of this community, and the sole reason is that neither his master nor the Police have direct control over him.

   If he were licensed as a public chair coolie or jinricksha coolie is, a very great improvement would be speedily observed in his behaviour.

8. I have already reported fully on the clan disturbances between Tung Koon and Sz Yap coolies which disgraced this Colony in March last resulting in one man being shot dead and several others wounded by revolver shots and knives.

   The fight had its origin in a collision between processionists of the two factions during the monster celebration both on land and water of the Feast of Lanterns last

year.

197

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH MARCH, 1895.

  The incident stirred up the dormant enmity between the two clans, and it only required another collision between some cargo coolies at West Point to fan the ill-feeling into flame.

to

For four days all work on steamers in the harbour ceased as the coolies of either party were afraid go to work lest they should be exposed to the attack of the other. In the meantime the members of the various clubs frequented by either party--professional fighting men and bullies-constituted them- selves the champions of either side and carried on for 4 days a guerilla warfare not upon each other, but upon any isolated members of the clans they might happen to meet.

*

In this way a coolie who with another was carrying a load in Hillier Street was shot by a man who walked quietly up to him, with a revolver, discharged it against his abdomen and walked as quietly away, not one in the crowded street having the courage to interfere with him or even to raise the alarm although a strong Police patrol had only just passed by. Nay, more not a single one of the many witnesses who must have seen the murder committed--for it was done at 12 o'clock in the day when the street and shops were full of people--would give any information at all to assist in tracing the man.

The companion of the murdered man made no report to the Police, and an entire day was spent in finding him.

Nine other coolies were cut down with swords and knives while pursuing their ordinary avocations, and two men were wounded by revolver shots fired from the tops of house in Queen's Road West into the houses opposite.

  This was put a stop to by posting armed Police on the house tops. Thirteen men were arrested for carrying revolvers in the street and 4 for being armed with knives while numerous arrests were made for fighting and disturbing the peace.

It was found possible to break up the clubs which had furnished the professional fighting men who carried on the disturbances, and in four days order was restored and the coolies returned to their work.

You are aware that the Officer Administering the Government (Sir GEORGE OBRIEN) reported to the Secretary of State his opinion that the Police had acted with credit in this emergency, and I take this opportunity of stating that each branch of the Force well deserved His Excellency's commendation.

The circumstances were such as to call into prominence the usefulness of the Chinese Contingent, and I am glad to be able to state that it acquitted itself in the most thoroughly satisfactory manner, the men displaying energy, intelligence, and courage.

I have also to acknowledge the valuable assistance rendered by the Registrar General and the District Watchmen.

9. I have referred above to the drain of men from the Police Force caused by the Plague.

There was no alternative but to lend as many men as were wanted to carry on the work of the Permanent Committee of the Sanitary Board (of which I myself was a member), for there was no possibility of getting men who could do the work satisfactorily elsewhere.

The house to house visitation could never have been conducted in the satisfactory manner it was without European Police who could speak Chinese, and without Chinese Police who could speak English, to act as interpreters for the soldiers and others engaged on the work who did not know the Chinese language.

Nor could the work at the Tung Wa and Plague Hospitals have been carried on without assistance from all three branches of the Force, or could the disinfecting and cleansing operations have been effected by the men of the Royal Engineers and Shropshire Light Infantry as smoothly and free from opposition as they were but for the presence of Police with the men at the commencement of the operations and until the soldiers and the Chinese population had become thoroughly accustomed to each other.

For the four months from the middle of May to middle of September there were 6 European Police, 2 Indians and 17 Chinese regularly employed on Plague work, and there were 14 Europeans, 11 Indians and 13 Chinese engaged on the same work for periods varying from 1 month to 3 months. These men all volunteered for the duty.

During the whole of that time not a single complaint was made against any one of these men although they were daily occupied in carrying out measures which were very distasteful to the Chinese population.

An immense amount of extra work was thrown by the Plague on the Police who were not employed under the Sanitary Board. This work although often of an extremely disagreeable nature was cheerfully undertaken by one and all.

In short, the work done by the entire Police Force during the Plague and the manner in which it was done, are deserving of the highest praise, and merit the thanks of the Community.

The demand for Chinese-speaking European Police was very great, and I regret to say that the supply was not equal to the demand.

Chinese is such an unattractive language that it is extremely difficult to induce men to take up the study of it.

I have hesitated to recominend that it be made compulsory lest such a condition superadded to the low sterling value of the pay should make recruiting at home more difficult, but I intend to make such a recommendation as soon as opportunity offers for doing so without risk of prejudice to other interests.

198

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH MARCH, 1895.

Neither was the supply of English-speaking Chinese Police and Chinese and English-speaking Indians sufficient.

Increased attention to the Police School is the remedy for this.

   10. The year so fruitful in extraordinary occurrences produced the only economic strike that, as far as I am aware, has ever occurred in this Colony.

   On the 16th of October the carpenters and joiners in the Colony struck for higher wages and diminished hours of work. They did not state what increase of wages they wanted, but they asked that their hours of work should be from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. with 1 hour off in the middle of the day all the year round, instead of from 7 A.M. to dusk in winter and 6 a.m. to dusk in summer and only an hour off in the middle of the day. The masters of carpenters' shops and contractors refused to grant these terms and the men went out on strike.

   The strikers were, of course, not interfered with till they put themselves on the wrong side of the pale of the law by interfering with certain carpenters who had returned to work.

   This led to arrests and convictions, and the strike ended without the strikers having gained their object. It lasted in all two weeks and a half.

11. The Dogs Ordinance has continued to work smoothly. During the year, 1,825 dogs were licensed on payment of the fee and 32 as watch dogs. 61 strayed and unclaimed dogs were destroyed. Only 11 cases of dog-bite were reported to the Police, which shews a marked decrease on the number in previous years.

12. Complaints on the part of the public have, as in the year 1893, been chiefly directed to the annoyance and interruption to traffic caused by cracker firing and Chinese processions in the streets. I have to repeat the opinion that the granting of permits for these native amusements should be placed

in the hands of the Executive Police.

   It seems not only anomalous but distinctly unfair to this Department that without any previous reference to it by the organisers of such demonstrations (who, in this case, I understand, were a mixed committee) the City should be allowed to be invaded by a host of processionists as it was on the occasion of the Feast of Lanterns in March last, when the crowd was so dense in the Queen's Road that not only was all chair and jinricksha traffic suspended, but pedestrians were unable to force their way through the seething mass of holiday makers.

   During an entire forenoon brokers and other business men were unable to pursue their business avocations, and the Police placed in the streets to endeavour to keep order were overwhelmed in the flood of human beings that not only filled the entire roadway but covered the pavement on both sides of it.

Complaints against mendicancy in the streets and the regulation of traffic have not been so frequent. An attempt has been made to improve the latter by establishing stands at convenient places for chairs and jinrickshas.

   Very little success has attended the efforts to keep pedestrians and especially coolies carrying burdens to the sides of the roads.

Nothing but increased carriage traffic will, I fear, effectually keep them off the roadways.

   13. The conduct of the Force during the year has on the whole been very satisfactory, although I regret to say that one sergeant and one temporary acting sergeant were reported for intemperance. The latter was dismissed.

The number of reports made against European Members of the Force was 74-the same as last year. Of these 10 were for drunkenness as against 19 in the previous 12 months, 3 for disorderly conduct, assault and fighting, and 3 for sitting down on duty as against 9 and 7, respectively, in 1893. On the other hand there were 12 reports for neglect of duty and 10 for asleep on duty (one man was reported twice for the latter offence) as against 5 and 6 in the previous year.

Against men of the Indian Contingent there were 214 reports as against 278 in 1893.

   Of these 18 were for drunkenness as against 25 in 1893; 25 for disorderly conduct, assault and fighting as against 27, 41 for neglect of duty as against 51, 17 for absence from duty or beat and late. for duty as against 56, 39 for gossiping, sitting down and idling on duty as against 23, 15 for asleep on duty as against 16, 5 for leaving beat before being relieved as against 9.

Amongst Chinese Constables there were 397 reports as against 363 in 1893.

It must be mentioned, however, that the Chinese Force was kept up to its full strength throughout

the year.

   I regret to say there were 2 cases of drunkenness. The increases were in 161 reports as against 115 in the previous year for the offences of absence from duty or beat, and late for duty, and in 6 reports for leaving beat before being relieved as against 1 report for this offence in 1893.

   There was a decrease of from 54 to 35 for gossiping on duty, sitting down and idling on duty, and from 52 to 48 for asleep on duty. 1 European constable was convicted by the Magistrate for assault. 1 Chinese constable of allowing a prisoner to escape. 1 Chinese of unlawful possession of a bag of sugar, and 4 Chinese (a Water Police boat's crew) of misconduct as Police constables in trying to extort money.

   14. A batch of recruits was obtained from the London Metropolitan Police, and has on the whole given very great satisfaction.

Twelve recruits were obtained from India and have given great satisfaction.

Very little recruiting was done for the Chinese Force, vacancies being filled up from the Water Police and recruits taken on temporarily for that branch in order to enable the necessary reduction to be made at the end of the year in view of the introduction of the system of substituting steam pinnaces for rowing boats for policing the harbour.

A trial was made of selection by competitive examination in the Chinese language.

The experiment was not a success. The Chinese that offer themselves as recruits being as a rule so illiterate that but small distinction could be drawn between their attainments.

   15. I attach a report on the Police School by Messrs. ARTHUR & JAMESON. The latter had charge of the school for nine months during the former's absence on leave.

   The translation of the new Instruction Book has caused much delay and the book is not yet out of the hands of the printer.

Five members of the European Force obtained certificates from the Board of Examiners for know- ledge of Chinese. One passed the third and highest standard. He has since been transferred to the Post Office as first clerk.

Fourteen Indians obtained certificates for knowledge of Chinese, and three Indians and one Chinese for knowledge of English.

16. The health of the Force has been very satisfactory. The admissions to Hospital were, compared with last year, as follows:-

Europeans, Indians, Chinese,

I attach a list shewing the number of fever cases sent to Hospital from each Station. It will be seen that the Aberdeen Station is by far the most unhealthy Station and the figures for it demand serious attention. Every European and Indian stationed there during the year contracted fever, and only three Chinese (including servants) escaped catching it.

The number of deaths from ordinary causes is the same as last year. No death occurred among the Europeans. Of the four Indians whose deaths are recorded two committed suicide and one was shot on duty, while of the eleven Chinese that died seven were claimed by the Plague and one was shot by an Indian Police constable.

17. The Indian messes have proved a success, and there are messes now established at all the Stations except Pokfulam, Aberdeen, Stanley, Shau-ki-wan, Hung Hom, and the Block House, Fuk Tsun Heung.

18. I have drawn attention in a separate report to the unsatisfactory condition of the Barrack accommodation in the Eastern and Western Districts, and I have also recommended the building of additional bath-rooms and of a drying-room at the Central Station. Improvements in these directions are urgently required, and I trust that it may be found possible to carry out my recommendations at an early date.

It has been found possible during the year to improvise drying-rooms at Nos. 1, 3, and 7 Stations, Yaumati, and Aberdeen. The men at those stations are now able to dry their uniform and clothing in wet weather, and it is probable that the improvement in the health of the Force is partly attributable to this cause.

Japanese hot water baths, which are self-heating being furnished with a charcoal stove, were supplied to the following stations:-

Central, Nos. 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, Mount Gough, Aberdeen, Stanley, Yaumati, Tsim Tsa Tsui, Hung Ham, Shau-ki-wan, and the men were instructed to take a hot plunge when returning wet and cold off duty at night or in the early morning.

   The men have used the baths to a fair extent, and will no doubt use them more as they become accustomed to and learn to appreciate them.

I have the honour to be,

SIR, I have the honour to forward a report on the Police School for 1894.

In consequence of my absence on leave for the nine months ending December, I have had no personal opportunity of observing the working and results of the changes introduced early in the year; but Mr. JAMESON, who had charge of the School during my absence, has furnished the report appended

hereto.

During the year 26 Europeans, 171 Indians and 159 Chinese attended the School.

   SIR,-I have the honour to report that the changes introduced by the Captain Superintendent about a year ago have increased the interest of the men in their school work and their progress has in consequence been more satisfactory.

   During the period under review ten European constables have passed the examination releasing them from compulsory attendance, while two Indians and one Chinese have obtained the increase of pay given for success in the higher examination by the Board of Examiners.

With a view to extending the usefulness of the School by attracting Indians and Chinese from other Departments, I would recommend that the personal allowance be given to a member of the Gaol Guard, WASAWA SINGH, who, by voluntarily attending the School for several years, has acquired a knowledge of English in excess of what is necessary to qualify Indian constables for the grant.

In April last Mr. ARTHUR went to England on leave of absence and has not yet resumed his duties.

SIR,

COLONIAL SECRETARY'S OFFICE,

HONGKONG, 27th Febr ruary, 1895.

   With reference to paragraph 12, of page 56, of the Evidence appended to the Report of the Retrenchment Committee, I am directed to inform you that Mr. THOMSON denies the accuracy of the words therein attributed to him by the Chairman, but admits having made a confidential statement before the Emigration Committee to the effect that from current reports amongst the Chinese, of which he, as Acting Registrar General, was informed confidentially, there was a certain amount of reason to believe that corruption existed in the passing of emigrants.

   As, however, no proof appears to be forthcoming in support of the accuracy of such rumours, I am to state that the Government cannot place any credence therein, and I am to express regret that by inadvertence publicity was given to what appeared to be a charge of corruption but which, on investigation, is found to be the repetition of mere rumours unsupported by a vestige of evidence.

I am to add that this letter will be laid on the table at the next meeting, of the Legislative Council,

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET,

15th January, 1895.

*

  SIR,With reference to my Circular despatches of the 25th July and 15th August last, I have the honour to transmit to you, for the information of the Colony under your Government, an extract from the London Gazette containing notes exchanged between Her Majesty's Ambassador at Madrid and the Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs confirming the commercial Agreement now existing between Great Britain and Spain.

I have the honour to be,

COMMERCIAL RELATIONS WITH SPAIN.

  The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs has received the following Despatch from Her Majesty's Ambassador at Madrid:-

MY LORD,

Madrid, January 2, 1895.

I have now the honour to inclose a copy of my note to the Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs confirming the commercial agreement between the United Kingdom and Spain, together with a copy and translation of His Excellency's reply.

  The original note from Senor Groizard will be forwarded to your Lordship by the first safe opportunity.

I have, &c.,

A

Enclosure 1.

Madrid, December 28, 1894.

MONSIEUR LE Ministre,

*

  Circumstances having impeded the further negotiations for a definite Commercial Treaty, the Government of Her Majesty, my August Sovereign, are prepared to record in a more formal manner the understanding now existing between the United Kingdom and Spain for the regulation of their mutual commercial relations. They understand that this course will for many reasons be convenient to the Government of His Catholic Majesty.

It is therefore understood between the two Governments that they maintain the agreement entered into between them in the month of June last, by the note addressed by me to Your Excellency's predecessor on the 20th of June, 1894, and the note I had the honour to receive from Senor Moret under date of the 29th of the same month. Such agreement shall remain in force until a permanent Treaty be concluded, or unless it be terminated by one of the parties, who shall with this object give the other a notice of six months.

* The following is the understanding now existing between Great Britain and Spain referred to in Sir H. Wolff's above despatch and made public in July, 1894.

"Under the provisions of an Act recently passed by the Spanish Certes, geeds arriving in Spain and r hColonies from the United Kingdom and the British Colonies will continue to receive the same treatment as heretofore, namely, in the Peninsula and the adjacent islands the Minimum Tariff, together with the advantages conceded by Treaty to Switzerland, Sweden and Norway, and the Netherlands, or other European States, except Portugal.c

"In the Spanish Colonies, such goods will continue to be treated under the Minimum Column of the Colonial Tariff. "This treatment will be maintained until a permanent Commercial Treaty is concluded between the United Kingdom and Spain, or until the negotiations now pending for the conclusion of such a Treaty are formally broken off."

J

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 16TH MARCH, 1895.

221

  As before, it is agreed that it shall be open to any British Colony to withdraw from the present agreement, on notice to that effect being given by Her Majesty's Ambassador at Madrid to the Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs within six months after the date of its signature.

I avail, &c.,

His Excellency Senor Groizard.

Palacio, 29 de Diciembre de 1894.

I have had the honour to receive the note which your Excellency communicated to me on the 28th instant, to the effect that circumstances having impeded the continuation of the negotiations for a definitive Treaty of Commerce between Spain and the United Kingdom, the Government of Her Britannic Majesty is prepared to record, in a more formal manner, the understanding now existing for the regulation of their commercial relations.

The Government of His Catholic Majesty, who believe that this understanding will be, for various reasons, equally convenient to that of Her Britannic Majesty, consider that the agreement entered into by exchange of notes under date of the 20th and 29th of June last, between your Excellency and my predecessor, Senor Moret, is maintained until the conclusion of a definitive Treaty, unless it be terminated by one of the High Contracting Parties, who, with this object, give to the other a notice of six months.

  As before, it is agreed that it shall be open to any British Colony to withdraw from the present agreement on notice to that effect being given by the Ambassador at Madrid to the Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs within six months after the date of its signature.

  SIR,-I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch No. 262 of the 6th of December last enclosing a copy of a letter from the Acting Chief Justice, in his capacity of Chairman of the Committee appointed at the public meeting which was held for the purpose of recognising services rendered during the recent epidemic of the plague.

  I have also to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch No. 267 of the 11th of December enclosing newspaper reports of the proceedings at the meeting and at a subsequent military parade.

2. I have taken due note of the names which are more prominently brought forward in these despatches, and I have experienced great satisfaction in bringing to the notice of the Secretary of State for War the services rendered by Major-General BARKER, C.B., and the officers and men of the Garrison under his command to whom the thanks of Her Majesty's Government are due in addition to the acknowledgments and thanks of the Colonial Government and the Colonial Community.

3. I have already placed on record my strong sense of the firmness and gallantry which were shown in the face of the epidemic, and I can only again repeat my personal acknowledgments to those who on behalf of others risked their life and health at this trying time.
