J. H. STEWART LOCKHART, Colonial Secretary.

Southern Entrance to the Yangtze.

  A survey of a section of the Southern Entrance to the Yangtze, about 25 miles in length and extending from abreast of the Triplets to within two miles of the Tungsha Lightship, which was completed on the 15th instant, shows that the deepest aud safest channel for vessels is now to the north-eastward of the Kiutoan Lightship instead of to the south-westward of her, as formerly.

DIRECTIONS.

To make the best direct courses: pass 2 cables to the south-westward of the Tungsha Lightship and then bring her to bear about S. 514° E., true, and keep her so until the Kiutoan Lightship is sighted on the opposite bearing; continuing on the same course till the latter is about three miles distant when House Island Beacon will bear N.E. Then keep a little to the north-eastward and pass the Kiutoan Lightship at a distance of from 1 to 1 cables; hauling to the westward so as to bring the lightship to bear about S. 63° E., true, by the time she is one mile distant, and keeping her on that bearing till she is 6 miles distant, when the vessel will be a little to the north-eastward of mid-chaunel, with the Kiutoan Small Beacon bearing about W. by S. S., from which position to the Woosung Outer Bar the present British Admiralty Chart No. 1602 may be followed.

The least depths of water, at low water of spring tides, found on the track above indicated were 21 feet at 24 miles inside the Tungsha Lightship, then from 22 to 28 feet till abreast of House Island Beacon, decreasing to 18 feet in the vicinity of the Kiutoan Lightship, where a bar, 2 miles in width between the 18 fect contours, has been formed by the junction of the former Middle Ground with Blockhouse Shoal. After passing this bar, the water gradually deepens to 5 fathoms at 4 miles inside the Kiutoan Lightship.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 23RD JANUARY, 1897.

CAUTION.

The Kintoan Lightship has sustained numerous collisions through vessels-most of them steamers-undertaking to cross her bow without making due allowance for the strength of the tide; and those on board of her complain that their lives are frequently imperilled through steamers passing dangerously near when there is nothing to prevent them keeping a safe distance from the lightship.

The warning given in Notice to Mariners No. 55 (Special) that vessels should not pass between the Tungsha Lightship and the South-east Spit is repeated. This locality has not yet been re-surveyed, but a shoal patch has been found there with

a depth of only 6 feet over it at low water where the latest chart shows 3 fathoms.

AIDS TO NAVIGATION.

The positions of the two Lightships and of the Middle Ground Lower, and South-east Knoll Buoys remain unchanged. The Middle Ground Upper Buoy will shortly be removed and a conical red buoy surmounted by a black inverted frustum eage, to be known as the Blockhouse Shoal Buoy, will be moored on the edge of the Shoal, between the South-east Knoll Buoy and the Kiutoan Lightship.

North Channel Entrance to the Yangtze.

Notice is hereby given that systematic sweeping operations having been carried on in the North or Shaweishan Channel for a period of four months, this entrance to the Yangtze is now considered free of all artificial obstructions to navigation, and the following mentioned buoys have been laid down to mark the channel.

Drinkwater Point Buoy:-A conical, 10-foot, red and black horizontally striped fairway buoy, surmounted by a black spherical cage. From the buoy Shaweishan Lighthouse bears N. 86° E., distant 124 iniles.

Ch'i-Yao Bank Buoy:-A conical, 6-foot, red buoy, with a black spherical cage, moored off the south-eastern elbow of Ch'i-yao Bank, to mark the starboard side of the Channel entering from sea. From the buoy Drinkwater Point Surveying Beacon bears N. distant 24 miles.

 Middle Island Buoy:-A conical, 6-foot, red and black horizontally striped fairway buoy, with a black inverted frustum cage, moored in position to guide vessels clear of the bank, which lies to the northward of Middle, and Blockhouse Islands. From the buoy Middle Island Surveying Beacon bears S. 34° W. distant 4 miles.

Tsung-ming Bank Buoy:-A conical, 6-foot, red buoy, with a black spherical cage, moored off the eastern end of Tsungming Bank, to mark the Starboard side of the Channel entering. From the buoy Middle Island Surveying Beacon bears S. 51° E. distant 3 miles.

DIRECTIONS.

 At the present time and with the buoys in the positions above described, a vessel may round the western end of Bush Island at about 2 cables and steer to make an E. by N. 4 N. Course till abreast of Tsungming Bank Buoy, after which she may steer to make direct courses from buoy to buoy, passing each according to its colouring. The narrowest part of the Channel and the locality where it appears most liable to change is between the Tsungming Bank and Bush and Middle Islands and their outlying banks, where, for a length of 5 miles, it varies in width from to 3 of a mile between the 18-feet

contours.

All bearings are magnetic, and distances in nautical miles.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

No. 6 of 1896.

GULF OF ST. VINCENT.

PORT ADELAIDE RIVER.

69

Notice is hereby given that on or about February 1st, 1897, the Port Adelaide River will be Lighted by Electricity, in consequence of which, the whole system of Buoys and Light Beacons will be re-arranged.

Light Beacons Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the present system will be discontinued.

  All Buoys marking the Channel will be removed, except the two outside of the Lighthouse, two black Buoys near the Old Boat Channel, and the two Mooring Buoys (for vessels with explosives) in Lipson Reach.

The new system will consist of (5) five pairs of leading lights, and (8) eight single light Beacons.

+

  The pairs of leading lights and single light Beacons will in future be numbered from seaward, instead of in the opposite way, as at present-that is to say-No. 12 and the light behind it of the old system, will be No. 1 of the new, and so on.

  The near light of each lead will be red, and the far one white, except in the case of No. 1 lead, where the far light will be red, as at present, and the near one white; these two have not been altered--because the red of No. 1 on with No. 2 is an established lead over the Ocean Steamers' Mooring Buoy; and the white light of No. 1 on with No. 2 leads over the Bell Buoy on Wonga Shoal.

The two lights of No. 1 lead through the Outer Cutting near the Lighthouse, as at present.

The single lights, Nos. 2 to 9 inclusive, will mark the edge of the Channel from opposite the Old Boat Channel to Mutton Cove.

Nos. 10, 11, 12, and 13 are leads, i.e., pairs.

  No. 10 is placed on the shore, abreast of the two Mooring Buoys for vessels with explosives, and leads from Mutton Cove half way up Lipson Reach.

No. 11 is place·l near the Torpedo Station, and leads up the other half of Lipson Reach to the North Arm.

No. 12 is placed on the Swamp south of the False Arm, and leads from the North Arm to the False Arm.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

No. 6 of 1896.

GULF OF ST. VINCENT.

PORT ADELAIDE RIVER.

69

Notice is hereby given that on or about February 1st, 1897, the Port Adelaide River will be Lighted by Electricity, in consequence of which, the whole system of Buoys and Light Beacons will be re-arranged.

Light Beacons Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the present system will be discontinued.

  All Buoys marking the Channel will be removed, except the two outside of the Lighthouse, two black Buoys near the Old Boat Channel, and the two Mooring Buoys (for vessels with explosives) in Lipson Reach.

The new system will consist of (5) five pairs of leading lights, and (8) eight single light Beacons.

+

  The pairs of leading lights and single light Beacons will in future be numbered from seaward, instead of in the opposite way, as at present-that is to say-No. 12 and the light behind it of the old system, will be No. 1 of the new, and so on.

  The near light of each lead will be red, and the far one white, except in the case of No. 1 lead, where the far light will be red, as at present, and the near one white; these two have not been altered--because the red of No. 1 on with No. 2 is an established lead over the Ocean Steamers' Mooring Buoy; and the white light of No. 1 on with No. 2 leads over the Bell Buoy on Wonga Shoal.

The two lights of No. 1 lead through the Outer Cutting near the Lighthouse, as at present.

The single lights, Nos. 2 to 9 inclusive, will mark the edge of the Channel from opposite the Old Boat Channel to Mutton Cove.

Nos. 10, 11, 12, and 13 are leads, i.e., pairs.

  No. 10 is placed on the shore, abreast of the two Mooring Buoys for vessels with explosives, and leads from Mutton Cove half way up Lipson Reach.

No. 11 is place·l near the Torpedo Station, and leads up the other half of Lipson Reach to the North Arm.

No. 12 is placed on the Swamp south of the False Arm, and leads from the North Arm to the False Arm.

No. 13 is placed on Snowden Bench, and leads from the False Arm to Luff Point.

Sailing directions, and further notice as to the exact late of the alterations, will be issued in due course. This affects Charts Nos. 2389 A. and B., Plan 1750.

WILLIAM ROBINSON,

Governor.

    By His Excellency Sir WILLIAM ROBINSON, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the Colony of Hongkong and its Dependencies, and Vice-Admiral of the same.

Whereas by section 5 of Ordinance 5 of 1866 entitled The Hongkong and Shanghae Bank Ordinance it was provided among other things that the capital of the Company (meaning the Hongkong and Shanghae Banking Corporation) should consist of five millions of dollars divide into forty thousand shares of one hundred and twenty-five dollars each, and such further capital not exceeding two millions five hundred thousand dollars, as the Directors for the time being should deem necessary for the purposes of the said undertaking and for the creation of which they should have previously obtained the consent of the Governor, such consent being signified in writing under the hand of the Governor, but such further capital should be divided into shares of one hundred and twenty-five dollars each and be paid up in full as thereinafter mentioned. And until such further capital should be raised as aforesaid, the aforesaid sum of five millions of dollars should be taken to be the fixed capital of the Corporation, and whenever and so often as any further capital should have been raised then a notification or proclamation to that effect under the hand of the Governor should be published in The Hongkong Government Gazette, and the said sum of five millions of dollars together with such further capital should thenceforth be taken to be the fixed capital of the Corporation, but with power, nevertheless, to further increase such capital as thereinafter mentioned.

    And whereas a further capital of two and a half millions of dollars divided into shares of one hundred and twenty-five dollars each was subsequently created and fully paid up making together with the original capital of five millions of dollars the total capital of seven millions and five hundred thousand Dollars and the consent of the then Governor of Hongkong and its Dependencies, His Excellency Sir GEORGE BOWEN, Knight Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George was thereto duly obtained in writing and a notification or proclamation to that effect, under the hand of the said Governor, was published and appeared in The Hongkong Government Gazette of the 12th day of July, 1884.

    And whereas by section 22 of the said Ordinance it was provided that it should be lawful for the Corporation from time to time to extend or increase their capital for the time being by the creation and sale of new shares, in the manner specified and set forth in the Deed of Settlement so as the same be made with the consent of a General Meeting of the Shareholders of the Corporation to be specially called for that purpose, and with the consent previously obtained of the Governor and under such conditions and provisions as he should think fit, such consent being evidenced as thereinbefore provided for with respect to other requirements of a like nature, and so as the total amount of the capital of the Corporation should not exceed the sum of ten millions of dollars. And until it should be certified by the Governor in like manner as aforesaid that one half of such new capital had been so paid up, the Corporation should not be entitled, by advertisement or otherwise, to state or hold out to the public that the amount of the capital had been increased.

76 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH FEBRUARY, 1897.

  And whereas it having been duly intimated to the then Governor of the Colony of Hongkong and its Dependencies Sir G. WILLIAM DES VEUX, Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, that the desire of the Directors of the said Corporation was to further increase the capital of the said Corporation to the total amount of Ten millions of dollars by the creation and sale of new shares in accordance with the Deed of Settlement of the said Corporation and subject to the provisions of the said sections 5 and 22 of the said Ordinance and to have the previous consent of the said Governor thereto the said Governor on the 18th day of February, 1890, in writing did signify his consent to the proposed creation of additional capital of the said Corporation in accord- ance with the Deed of Settlement thereof and subject to the provisions of the said Ordinance.

And whereas it having been represented to me that pursuant to the said consent a further capital of Two millions and five hundred thousand Dollars divided into shares of One hundred and twenty-five Dollars each has been created and fully paid up.

Now, therefore, I, in pursuance of section 5 of the said Ordinance, do hereby proclaim that the said further capital of Two millions and five hundred thousand Dollars has been raised and fully paid up and that the said sum of Five millions of Dollars together with the said further sums of Two inillions and five hundred thousand Dollars and Two millions and five hundred thousand Dollars making in all a total of Ten millions of Dollars shall be taken to be the Fixed Capital of the said Bank.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.--No. 58.

The following Report of the Director of the Observatory for 1896, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 13th February, 1897.

""

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Colonial Secretary.

HONGKONG OBSERVATORY,

26th January, 1897.

SIR,I have the honour to submit my annual report for 1896 to His Excelleney the Governor. My twelfth volume of "Observations and Researches was published last autumn, and the thirteenth volume is now being printed. It contains investigations of the typhoons in 1896, which I have conducted in co-operation with Mr. FIGG. Thus all the typhoons that have been observed since this Observatory was started on the 1st January, 1884, have now been investigated. The same volume will contain a contribution to high level anemometry in the Tropics as the anemograms taken on top of the Peak are at present being measured. From a discussion of these measures the laws governing the winds at that altitude will for the first time be accurately ascertained, a result that cannot fail to benefit local storm-warnings. Two years' rainfall in China are also being tabulated, but this is of minor importance.

2. The thanks of the Government are due to the Inspector-General of the Imperial Maritime Customs of China for ordering meteorological observations to be made at the Treaty Ports and light- houses and transmitted to this Observatory, and to the Telegraph Companies for continuing to forward a number of them free of charge, and with precedence urgency, but many more telegraphic returns are required for the purpose of weather-forecasts and storm-warnings especially from the interior and the north of China, and I have ventured to apply to His Excellency for such further returns.

3. The staffs of the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company at Bolinao (Luzon), and at Sharp Peak (near Foochow), make observations at all times during the day, whenever required, and cable them direct to Hongkong. This enables Mr. FIGG to indicate the progress of typhoons very much better than would be possible without such information, but the Directors of the Companies have unfortunately refused to sanction their employees taking up this work at other stations.

4. During the past year reports were received every three hours, day and night, by telegraph from Gap Rock, the lighthouse about 30 miles to the south of the Colony, and also hourly from 6 a. till 8 p. daily by telephone from Victoria Peak. This is a great help for local storm-warnings. It would be still better if reports could be had at night also from the Peak, and if trained observers were located there, but as the cost would exceed a hundred dollars a month I have not suggested those improve- Should, however, a further improvement in local storm-warnings be considered essential, this

expense could scarcely be avoided.

5. Mr. FIGG has analysed his weather-forecasts for 1896 with the following results. The results for wind-direction, force, and weather are treated separately in the first instance. The forecast wind- direction is considered successful if the wind at Gap Rock blows the greater part of the 24 hours from a direction that does not differ more than 45° from the forecast (93% were successful). Forecast wind force "light," is successful if the mean force registered at Gap Rock is a light breeze, or if the wind force does not reach the force of a moderate breeze; "moderate," if the mean is a moderate breeze, or if the wind force exceeds a light breeze and falls short of a strong breeze; "fresh," if the mean is a fresh breeze, or if the wind force exceeds a gentle breeze and falls short of a moderate gale; strong," if the mean is a strong breeze, or if the wind force exceeds a moderate breeze and falls short of a fresh gale; "gale," if it blows more than 40 miles per hour at Gap Rock (93% were successful). The "weather" is successful when "fine" is forecast if the mean amount of clouds is below 7-tenths of the whole sky, if sunshine or starlight prevails, and when it does not rain more than one hour out of the twenty-four; when "fair, cloudy," if the amount of clouds exceeds 3-tenths and it does not rain more than one hour; when "showery" if it rains at intervals and is fair at intervals; when wet, rainy" if it rains more than 4 hours (77% were successful). Counting days on which all three elements were correctly forecast as "success," those when two elements were justified and one failed as "partial success," those when one element was justified and two failed as "partial failure," and those when all elements failed as "total failure," we have :-

44

Success 67 %, partial success 30 %, partial failure 2 %, total failure 1%

Following the method used in meteorological offices and taking the sum of total and partial success as a measure of success, and the sum of total and partial failure as a measure of failure, we find finally that :-

97% of the weather-forecasts were successful.

80

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13?? FEBRUARY, 1897.

6. The amount of success attached to the firing of the typhoon gun to indicate local gales has been determined according to the method adopted at meteorological offices at home. According to this method of counting, the storm-signal is justified if followed by a gale of force 8 and upwards within 48 hours at a place near sea-level within 50 miles of the place where the signal is hoisted. It is a failure because "too late," if it blows a strong gale (force 9) before the signal is hoisted. According to this way of counting, a failure has to be recorded every time the gun is not fired during the winter for a "Norther," although we do not presume to forecast those, as that cannot be done till information is available from the interior and northern ports, e.g., from Hankow and Chefoo, from which ports no telegrams have as yet reached the Observatory.

7. The typhoon gun has been fired 27 times one round, since the Observatory was started on the 1st January, 1884, ie., during the past 13 years. During the same period it has 30 times blown a gale of force 8 and upwards: Once in February (norther), once in June (typhoon), 5 times in July (typhoons), 3 times in August (typhoons), 11 times in September (typhoons), 7 times in October (typhoons), and twice in December (northers).

the

8. The following table gives an account of all the gales that have passed over the Colony during past 13 years and the warnings given by the typhoon gun. This shows 75 % of success counting all the gales and all the times the gun was fired, or 83% of success if the Northers" be left out of the account. This compares favourably with the percentage of success in the British Isles, 58 % only of which are justified by subsequent gales of force 8 and upwards (mean of the 10 years 1884-93 inclusive) This leaves out of account the fact that in those isolated instances, where the gun was not fired, warning was given by notices issued and, of late years, by lanterns hoisted.-During the first eight years the gun was fired when the wind blew 37 miles per hour, on an average, while during the past four

                                                          years it was fired when the wind blew only 27 miles per hour on an average. This shows an improvement with the increase of staff that took place in the meantime, and with the increase in the number of telegraphic reporting stations. Detailed particulars concerning every typhoon are published in the "Observations and Researches."

  9. The typhoon gun has been fired two rounds 6 times in the past thirteen years: 1st time on the 10th September, 1884, at 6.28 p. (at midt. 89 m.p.b.), 2nd time on the 19th July, 1891, at 2.30 a. (at 7 a. 64 m. p. h.), 3rd time on the 2nd October, 1893, at 6.0 a. (at 3 p. 81 m. p. h.), 4th time on the 25th September, 1894, at 6.0 a. (at 9 a. 86 m. p. h.), 5th time on the 5th October, 1894, at 8.30 a. (at 5 p. 85 m. p. h.), 6th time on the 29th July, 1896, at 5.45 p. (at 10 p. 108 m. p. h.)

82

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH FEBRUARY, 1897.

This shows it to have been fired about 6 hours in advance of the heaviest blow, which was on an average 85 m. p. h. (full typhoon force), but the ample warnings issued far in advance render this signal superfluous, and I suggest that it be discontinued.

10. Too great credit cannot be given to Mr. FIGG, our eminent weather-forecaster, for the services he has rendered and of which an account is given in the previous paragraphs. His warnings have saved enormous sums of money for the wealthy communities of the Far East, and have indeed been a benefit to nearly all who trade in these seas, quite apart from the lives which have thereby been preserved.

11. The China Coast Meteorological Register was printed at the Observatory, and information regarding storms was telegraphed to and exhibited on notice boards in Hongkong and elsewhere as often and as fully as such information could be justified by the weather telegrams received. This happened on 90 days in 1896. The Red Drum was hoisted 7 times, the Black Drum 3 times, the Red South Cone 3 times, the Black South Cone 8 times, the Black Ball 5 times, two Lanterns vertically twice. The Gun was fired one round 4 times, two rounds once in 1896. Printed expresses were circulated on 5 occasions.

12. Telegraphic connection with Victoria was interrupted on the 9th June, 1896, from 3.30 p. to 6.30 p.; on the 29th July from 3.15 p. to 5.56 p.; from the 29th July at 7 p. to 1st August at 2.30 p; on the 13th August from 10.22 a. to 12.27 p.; on the 26th August from 10.40 a. to 11.30 a.; on the 27th August from 11.30 a. to 1.10 p.; on the 24th November from 12.5 p. to 2.54 p. ruptions occurred therefore on 9 days, and, of course, also during thunderstorms.-Telephone connection with the Peak was interrupted from the 23rd February at 9 a. to 24th February at 11.37 a.; from the 20th March at 11 a. to 22nd March at 3.45 p.; from the 12th June at 5 p. to 15th June at 7 a.; from the 22nd June at 8 p. to 23rd June at 11 a.; from the 29th July at 6 p. to 6th August at 5 p.; from the 7th October at 3 p. to 8th October at 7 a.; from the 8th October at noon to 9th October at 7 a., i.e., on 23 days as well as during thunderstorms.

13. During 1896, in addition to meteorological registers kept at 40 stations on shore, 2151 ship-logs have been copied on board or forwarded by the captains. The total number of vessels, whose log books have been made use of was 325. The total number of days' observations (counting separately those made on board different ships on the same day) was 18541.

14. The following is a list of ships from which logs have been obtained in 1896. Those to which is prefixed have been communicated directly by their Captains, and the remainder have been copied on board the several vessels.

As stated in the "Instructions for making Meteorological Observations etc." meteorological instruments forwarded by observers who regularly send their registers to the Observatory are verified here free of cost. During the past year 3 barometers, 3 aneroids and 7 thermometers were verified. In addition several hundred barometers and aneroids on board ship were compared with our standard. 17. The following table shows the spectroscopic rainband as observed daily at about 10 a. The mean value for the year was 2.1:-

 18. Mr. PLUMMER observed 455 transits in 1896 and the axis of the transit instrument was levelled 170 times, or on each occasion when observations were made.--The rates of the standard clocks are shown in the following tables. Towards the end of April the rate of the standard sidereal clock having been greatly accelerated it was cleaned upon May 1, and after the lapse of a few weeks a steady rate was re-established. On August 4th the clock tripped 6 seconds owing to an irregularity in the length of the teeth of the wheel which makes the electrical contacts, and it was found necessary to file some of them slightly. On September 22 the action of the contact springs being again unsatis- factory they were cleaned and their surfaces polished, and advantage was taken of the opportunity to alter the rate of the clock. On December 17 the clock was found to have again tripped several seconds, and the adjustment of the springs was therefore altered, but on December 30 the clock was found to have stopped, the springs again pressing too closely upon the toothed wheel. This was remedied, and it is now expected that the going of the clock will be satisfactory.-The rate of the standard meantime clock was altered on May 29, and the arc having steadily diminished for some months, the clock was cleaned on November 12. It was found, however, to be in a satisfactory condition, and the change in the length of the arc was probably due to thickening of the oil in the dry weather.The rates of both clocks have been compared with rates furnished by the formula at the head of the tables. The last rate given in Table IV. is the mean of six days only, December 22 to December 28. Table VI. shows the errors of the time-ball in 1896. The probable error was in January 0.13, in February 0.19, in March 0.20, in April 0.25, in May 03.12, in June 0.12, in July 0.09, in August 0.14, in September 0.16, in October 0.16, in November 0.13 and in December 0.17. There was no failure of the time-ball in 1896. On Government holidays it is not hoisted, and on 4 other days it was considered inadvisable to do so; namely, on April 11 during a severe thunderstorm, on August 9 and October 6 owing to strong easterly gales and on July 30 when, in consequence of the typhoon of the previous day, the line was in contact with other lines.

19. For the determination of the latitude of the Colony and of the changes to which it may be subject a catalogue of upwards of 200 Hongkong zenith-stars based upon the latest and best observa- tions made in a number of European observatories was constructed. In such work Mr. PLUMMER'S assiduity and scrupulous accuracy in astronomical calculations do excellent service. Since the 28th September 510 observatious of pairs of stars have been made with the transit-instrument after Talcott's method by Mr. PLUMMER and myself.

   20. The time would appear to have come when this Observatory should be supplied with a larger transit-circle, the same as used in all the other observatories. Such is required for the local time- service, for determinations of geographical positions in the Far East, and for many other important

purposes.

   21. In October last Dr. WITTRAM of the Imperial Observatory, Pulkovo, near St. Petersburg, called at Hongkong and determined with great care the constant of gravity at this Observatory by aid of Colonel VON STERNECK's pendulums. On three different occasions lately officers of three different Austrian men-of-war have made similar observations here, so that the constant of gravity relatively to Vienna will be known with great accuracy.

22. The cisterns of the barograph and standard barometers are placed 109 feet above M.S.L. The bulbs of the thermometers are rotated 108 feet above M.S.L., and 4 feet above the grass. The solar radiation thermometer is placed at the same height. The rim of the rain-gauge is 105 feet above M.S.L., and 21 inches above the ground.

23. The monthly Weather Reports are arranged as follows:-

   Table I. exhibits the hourly readings of the barometer reduced to freezing point of water, but not to sea level, as measured (at two minutes to the hour named) from the barograins.

   Tables II. and III. exhibit the temperature of the air and of evaporation as determined by aid of rotating thermometers. Table II. exhibits also the extreme temperatures reduced to rotating thermometer. Table III. exhibits also the solar radiation (black bulb in vacuo) maximum temperatures reduced to Kew arbitrary standard.

Table IV. exhibits the mean relative humidity in percentage of saturation and mean tension of water vapour present in the air in inches of mercury, for every hour of the day and for every day of the month, calculated by aid of Blanford's tables from the data in Tables II. and III.

83

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH FEBRUARY, 1897.

 Table V. exhibits the duration of sunshine expressed in hours, from half an hour before to half an hour after the hour (true time) named.

 Table VI. exhibits the amount of rain (or dew) in inches registered from half an hour before to half an hour after the hour named. It exhibits also the estimated duration of rain.

 Table VII. exhibits the velocity of the wind in miles and its direction in points (1-32). The velocity is measured from half an hour before to half an hour after the hour named, but the direction is read off at the hour.

 Table VIII. exhibits the amount (0-10), name (Howard's classification) and direction whence coming of the clouds. Where the names of upper and lower clouds, are given, but only one direction this refers to the lower clouds. With regard to the names of clouds, nimbus (nim) is only entered when the rain is seen to fall; when no rain is seen to fall cumulo-nimbus (cum-nim) is entered, and this name is also used to indicate clouds intermediate between cumulus and nimbus. Cumulo-stratus (cum-str) is the well known thunder cloud, and strato-cumulus (str-cum) signifies a cloud intermediate between stratus and cumulus.

 Table IX. exhibits for every hour in the day the mean velocity of the wind reduced to 4 as well as 2 directions, according to strictly accurate formula, and also the mean direction of the wind.

Below this is printed a list of the phenomena observed.

24. The following annual Weather Report for 1896 is arranged as follows:-

Table VII. exhibits the mean values for the year (or hourly excess above this) obtained from the monthly reports. The total duration of rain was 1020 hours. There fell at least 0.01 inch of rain on 154 days.

Table VIII. exhibits the number of hours during a portion of which at least 0.005 inch of rain (or dew) was registered.

Table IX. exhibits the number of days with wind from eight different points of the compass. The figures are obtained from the mean daily directions in Table VII. of the monthly reports. Days, with wind from a point equi-distant from two directions given, are counted half to one of these and balf to the other, e.g., half of the days when the wind was NNE are counted as N, and the other half as NE.

 Table X. exhibits the number of days on which certain meteorological phenomena were registered, and also the total number of thunderstorms noted in the neighbourhood during the past year.

Table XI. shows the frequency of clouds of different classes.

Table XII. is arranged as last year.

The extremes of humidity and vapour

Table XIII. exhibits the monthly and annual extremes. tension are only approximate as the hourly values are not calculated.

Table XV., XVI., XVII. contain magnetic observations.

 25. Observations of magnetic declination and horizontal force were made by Mr. PLUMMER and reduced by Mr. FIGG with the unifilar magnetometer Elliott Brothers, No. 55, and the dips were observed with dip-circle, Dover No. 71.

The

 The methods adopted in making the observations and in determining and applying the corrections are explained in Appendix G. of Observations and Researches made in 1885: "On the verification of the unifilar magnetometer Elliot Brothers No. 55." The value of log 2 K was 3.44920 at 25°. value of P was +5.042. The mean value of the magnetic moment of the vibrating needle was 0.45070 in English units and 588.42 in C.G.S. units.

The times of vibration exhibited in the table are each derived from 12 observations of the time occupied by the magnet in making 100 vibrations, corrections having been applied for rate of chronometer. and arc of vibration.

 The observations of horizontal force are expressed in C.G.S. units (one centimeter, one gramme, one second), but the monthly synopsis exhibits X, the horizontal, as well as Y, the vertical, and total forces, which have been computed by aid of the observed dips, and their values are also given in English units (one foot, one grain, one second) and in Gauss's units (one millimeter, one milligram, one second).

Her Majesty's Government note that this denunciation is made in conformity with the provisions of Article XV. of that Treaty. They therefore accept it, and have announced in the "London Gazette" that Articles V., VI. and VII. of the Treaty will cease and determine on the 26th of November, 1897.

Her Majesty's Government are happy to think that all the other Articles referring to Friendship, Commerce and Navigation will, under the terms of the above-mentioned Article, remain in force, and in order to strengthen the relations of amity, to which they attach much value they will be prepared to negotiate alternative Articles in place of those now denounced.

They will therefore be glad to be informed of the nature of the alternative Articles which the Government of Costa Rica may desire to suggest.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.--No. 74.

The following is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 27th February, 1897.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Colonial Secretary.

WEATHER-FORECASTS AND STORM-WARNINGS ISSUED FROM THE HONGKONG OBSERVATORY.

WEATHER-FORECASTS AND STORM-WARNINGS.

The China Coast Meteorological Register, containing weather-forecasts and storm-warnings, based on telegraphic information, is printed at the Observatory and exhibited about noon (Sundays and Government holidays excepted) on notice-boards placed at the Eastern Extension, Australasia and China Telegraph Company's Office, at Peddar's Wharf, at the Harbour Office, at the Office of the Kowloon Godown Co. etc. Copies may be obtained at the Harbour Office.

 Weather-forecasts and storm-warnings, for the use of the public ashore and afloat, are issued at 11 a., and also at other hours, whenever necessary, especially during the typhoon season.

Masters of vessels receive on application at the Observatory a copy of observations telegraphed from other ports too late for press.

STORM-SIGNALS.

Storm-signals are hoisted on the mast beside the time-ball at Kowloon Point. They are similar to those hoisted in the British Isles by order of the Meteorological Office, London.

NORTHERLY GALES.

A Cone int upwards means that strong winds are probable from the Northward or Eastward.

3

SOUTHERLY GALES.

A Cone point downwards means that strong winds are probable from the Southward or Westward.

These signals are considered justified if followed, at any place within 50 miles of where they are hoisted, by winds of force 6 or upwards to force 12 within 48 hours, and too late if it blows a gale of force 9 before they are hoisted.

VERY HEAVY GALES.

A Drum may be hoisted with the cone at times when the weather-forecaster believes that a strong gale, which may possibly reach typhoon force from the direction indicated by the cone, is approaching, and a gun, placed at the foot of the mast, is fired, whenever the drum is hoisted.

It is considered

The use of the drum is at present suspended in the British Isles, and no gun is fired there. justified if followed, at any place within 50 miles of where it is hoisted, by a gale of force 8 and upwards to force 12 within 48 hours, and too late if it blows a gale of force 9 before it is hoisted.

NIGHT SIGNALS.

At dusk whenever a signal ought to be flying, if it were daylight, a night signal will be hoisted in place of the cone, consisting of three lanterns shewing white or any colour but all alike, hung on a triangular frame, point upwards or downwards as the case may be. No lanterns are hoisted to represent the drum.

In every case when it is thought that immediate danger is over, the signal is at once lowered.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

No. 1 of 1897.

GULF OF ST. VINCENT.

PORT ADELAIDE RIVER.

Referring to Notice to Mariners (No. 6 of 1896) dated December 14th, 1896, notice is hereby given that on and after Monday, the 8th February, 1897, the Beacons in the Port Adelaide River will be Lighted by Electricity.

Consequent on the above the whole system of Buoys and Light Beacons will be re-arranged.

Light Beacons Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the present system will be discontinued.

All Buoys marking the Chanuel will be removed on the 8th instant except the two outside of the Lighthouse, two Black Buoys near the Old Boat Channel, and two Mooring Buoys (for vessels with explosives) in Lipson Reach.

The new system consists of (5) five pairs of Leading Lights and (8) eight Single Light Beacons.

The pairs of Leading Lights and Single Light Beacons will be numbered from seaward, instead of in the opposite way, as at present that is to say, No. 12 and the light behind it of the old system will be No. 1 of the new, and so on.

The near Light of each lead will be Red, and the far one White, except in the case of No. 1 lead, where the far Light will be Red, as at present, and the near one White; these two have not been altered-because the Red Light of No. 1 on with No. 2 is an established lead over the Ocean Steamers' Mooring Buoy, and the White Light of No. 1 on with No. 2 leads over the Bell Buoy on Wonga Shoal.

The two Lights of No. 1 lead through the Outer Cutting near the Lighthouse, as at present.

Nos. 2 to 9, inclusive, are Single Lights, and will mark the edge of the Channel from opposite the Old Boat Channel to Mutton Cove.

Nos. 10, 11, 12, and 13 are leads, i.e., pairs.

3

No. 10 is placed on the shore abreast of the two Mooring Buoys for vessels with explosives, and leads from Mutton Cove half way up Lipson Reach.

No. 11 is placed near the Torpedo Station, and leads up the other half of Lipson Reach to the North Arm. No. 12 is placed on the Swamp south of the False Arm, and leads from the North Arm to the False Arm. No. 13 is placed on Snowden Beach, and leads from the False Arm to Luff Point.

The following sailing directions are published for general information :-

By Night. In approaching the Entrance to the River the Lights of No. 1 lead should, as formerly, be brought in line on a N.E. by E. bearing and be kept in line, which will lead between the outer Black and Red Buoys and through the Outer Cutting. After passing the Reflecting Beacon gradually alter the course so as to pass the White Light of No. 1 lead at a reasonable distance.

From a safe distance off No. 1, steer for a like distance off No. 2, and so on from Beacon to Beacon round the point until No. 9 is reached. From a safe distance off No. 9 the Lights of No. 10 lead will be seen. Keep them in line until the Red Light is about a quarter of a point open to the right of the White Light of No. 11 lead, then gradually alter the course to bring the Lights of No. 11 lead in line. Keep them in line (a sharp lookout being kept for the Mooring Buoys on the starboard hand) until the Lights of No. 12 lead are seen coming into line. Proceed as before by altering the course before the Lights are on with each other. The same applies in the change from No. 12 to 13 leads. When the Lights on the wharves are seen opening out off Luff Point alter the course so as to round the point at a safe distance, and then up the centre of the Channel, looking out for the Mooring Buoy on the starboard hand.

By Day. The directions by day are the same as by night, merely substituting the Beacons for the Lights.

In going outwards the directions are just the opposite to those given for coming inwards; but in such case in changing from one lead to another the course should be gradually altered when abreast of the Low (Red) Beacon of each lead.

NOTE.-The Beacons from Nos. 1 to 9, inclusive, are placed from 15ft. to 20ft. shorewards from the edge of the

cutting.

A new Chart of the Port Adelaide Harbor and River and the Semaphore Anchorage, showing the alterations herein referred to, as well as other corrections to January last, may now be obtained at the Marine Board Offices, price 2s.

This affects Charts Nos. 2389 A and B, plan 1750.

escapes.

He

308.

He shall carefully observe the officers under his charge, and report weekly to the Superintendent of the prison on their efficiency in the management of their parties. He shall enter in a book to be kept for the purpose the number of gangs, number of prisoners, and the names of the officers under his charge, with the name of the district where the work is carried on and the description thereof.

309. The Warders in charge of gangs shall at all times see to the safe custody of the prisoners

200

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH MARCH, 1897.

and shall place themselves when on the works so as at all times to command a good view of the prisoners, shall repeatedly count the prisoners during the day, and never turn their backs towards them, and shall on no account use a spade, pick, or any other tool, so as to place themselves at a disadvantage with regard to the prisoners.

 310. The Warders shall be careful to ascertain that the anklets, chains, and padlocks are in proper order, and shall minutely examine them before leaving the prison, when knocking off work for the mid-day meal, and before returning to the prison in the evening.

 311. In the event of a prisoner's attempting to escape, the officer in charge of the gang shall blow his whistle to attract the attention of the other officers, and shall immediately fall-in the remaining prisoners of his gang and await instructions from the Senior Officer in charge.

REWARDS UNDER THE MARK

SYSTEM, AND GRATUITIES.

 314. Every prisoner under a first sentence of imprisonment with hard labour for two years or upwards may earn remission of sentence by industry accompanied by good conduct.

315. The maximum remission obtainable by mile prisoners will be one-fourth of the sentence, for female prisoners one-third of the sentence.

 316. The amount of remission shall be de- termined by marks.

317. The mark system shall be carried out as follows:-

(a) Every day of imprisonment shall be represented by six marks in the case of a male prisoner, and by four marks in the case of a female prisoner, irrespective of conduct or industry.

(b) One additional mark shall be given for a fair day's labour; two ad- ditional marks for steady hard work and full performance of the task allotted for the day.

(c) In order to earn a remission a male prisoner must obtain a number of marks equal to more than six

times, and a female prisoner a number equal to more than four times, the number of days of the term of hard labour to which the prisoner is sentenced; thus if only six marks per diem are obtained by a male prisoner or four by a female prisoner, no remission is earned: whereas, if eight marks per diem are obtained by a male prisoner, or six by a female pri- soner, and none are forfeited for misconduct, the prisoner earns the full remission, viz., one-fourth of the sentence in the case of a male, and one-third in the case of a female.

318. No marks shall be allowed for mere good conduct except on Sunday. Prisoners entitled to marks who conduct themselves well on that day shall receive eight marks in the case of a male prisoner, and six in the case of a female prisoner.

319. Prisoners in hospital, if injured on the works or in the performance of their duty (without any fault of their own), shall be allowed eight marks per diem for a male, and six in the case of a female prisoner; if in hospital for any other cause, six marks per diem for a male, and four in the case of a female, unless increased by the Superintendent.

320. Prisoners in the industrial light labour class shall be allowed marks in proportion to their industry on the same scale as other prisoners.

321. Prisoners in solitary confinement, or on punishment diet for breaches of prison discipline, shall be allowed only six marks a day in the case of a male, and four in the case of a female, during the time of such confinement.

322. Prisoners who have been sentenced a second time to imprisonment with hard labour for two years or upwards shall not be allowed the privilege of earning any remission of their sentence during the first year of such second sentence; but, if their conduct and industry during the first year be approved of by the Superintendent of the prison, they shall be allowed the privilege of earning a remission of one-fourth part in the case of a male prisoner and in the case of a female prisoner one-third part of the remainder of their sentence on the same terms as prisoners under a first sentence.

323. Prisoners sentenced a third time or oftener to imprisonment with hard labour for two years or upwards shall not be allowed to earn any remission of sentence.

324. Any prisoner who commits any breach of the prison rules may, in addition to or in lieu of any punishment that may be awarded him, be fined any number of marks not exceeding 720 by the Visiting Justice or Justices and 240 by the Superintendent of the prison.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH MARCH, 1897.

  325. Prisoners who have earned a remission of part of their sentence shall be placed under Police supervision and be furnished with licences in accordance with The Prevention of Crimes Ordinance, No. 11 of 1887.

326. The earning of marks and grant of remission shall extend to re-convicted licence- holders serving the remanets of former sentences.

327. Every prison officer in charge of a working party shall be provided with a mark book in which he shall record daily the number of marks earned by each convict.

328. The Chief Warder shall frequently, and never less than twice a week, inspect and initial the mark books, and see that the marks are allotted equitably and in accordance with the rules. If a male prisoner is credited with less than 50 marks per week, or a female prisoner with less than 30 marks per week, the matter shall be brought to the notice of the Superintend- ent of the prison.

329. Every prisoner shall in the evening of each day be informed of the number of marks which he or she has earned during the day.

330. Extra marks may be given by the Governor of the Colony for very special services on the recommmendation of the Superintendent of the prison.

331. All criminal prisoners with sentences of two years and upwards, who shall be employed at remunerative labour, may earn a small gratuity at the rate of one cent for every eight marks, but the whole gratuity for any one prisoner shall not exceed $10. Such gratuity shall be paid at the time of discharge. In forfeiting marks for mis- conduct the proportionate amount of gratuity shall also be forfeited.

  332. Prisoners will not be allowed to earn any gratuity until they have served the first six months in separate confinement.

333. The name of every prisoner under sen- tence for life who has served fifteen years of his sentence, or having served ten years of his sentence has attained or is believed, in the absence of positive evidence, to have attained the age of sixty, shall be submitted for the consideration of the Governor in Council. This rule shall be com- municated to every such prisoner on entering the prison, but each prisoner shall be made to distinctly understand that such submission in no way implies that any remission of sentence will necessarily be granted.

SEPARATE CONFINEMENT.

334. All male prisoners sentenced to impri- sonment for two years and upwards shall pass the first six months of their imprisonment in separate confinement.

335. Prisoners in separate confinement shall be allowed one hour daily to exercise in the open air under the supervision of an officer of the prison who shall see that the prisoners do not converse together, either in going to the yard, while at exercise, or in returning to their cells.

336. Such prisoners shall keep their cells and utensils perfectly clean at all times, and shall be employed at crank labour, picking oakum, (2 lbs.), making or mending clothes, shoe making or mending, &c.

337. Such prisoners shall on no account com- municate or hold conversation with any other prisoner, but shall at all times observe the strictest silence.

338. Such prisoners may write a letter on admission, if they wish to inform their friends of their whereabouts, and receive a reply; but, with this exception, they shall not write or receive a letter, or receive a visit, during the six months of their separate confinement.

339. Prisoners, previously imprisoned for felony, when sentenced to imprisonment with hard labour, shall pass a certain time in separate confinement, from one to six months, according to the number of their previous convictions and their conduct while in prison.

340. In these rules the words subordinate officers shall, unless inconsistent with the con- text, include all officers except the Chief Warder. The words "criminal prisoners" shall include all prisoners except first class misdemeanants, pri- soners for debt, prisoners on remand and persons imprisoned for default in finding security. The words "European prisoners" shall include Ame- ricans and such persons as are manifestly Euro- peans by extraction. "Asiatic prisoners" shall include all prisoners other than Europeans.
