BUOYAGE OF HAINAN STRAIT.

Notice is hereby given that the HAINAN HEAD BANK BUOY has been shifted about two cables to the SOUTH-WESTWARD of its former position on account of the extension of the bank in that direction and that it is now moored in 35 feet at low water of spring tidos with the summit of HAINAN BLUFF bearing about S. 65° W. and distant about 17 cables.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 8TH JANUARY, 1898..

DIRECTIONS.

??

      With the HAINAN HEAD BANK BUOY in the position above described and the RIVERSDALE ROCK, and the HAINAN REEF BUOYS in their advertised positions, vessels entering the South Channel from the Eastward should pass say 2 cables N. E. of the RIVERSDALE ROCK BUOY and then steer to pass say 1 cable S. W. of the HAINAN HEAD BANK BUOY, taking care to guard against being set towards the shore, and remembering that it is safe to borrow towards the banks on the starboard band-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.

HAITAN STRAIT.

RANGE BEACONS ESTABLISHED.

      Notice is hereby given that two Range Beacons have been established on the north-eastern slope of Pass Island, indi- cating a bearing of N. 2010 W., to guide vessels through the narrows of Wilson Channel; cach Beacon having a diamond- shaped top-mark-the northern one with a white field and the central portion black, and tho southern one with a black field and the central portion white.

      Also that two Range Beacons have been established on the south-eastern slope of Slut Island, with the summit of the island (a boulder painted white with a vertical black stripe in the middle) and the middle of Cow's Horn Peak directly in line, bearing N. 84° W., to guide vessels in the fairway between the reefs which extend from Mitre Rock, and the Chiu- niang Rocks, lying about 6 cables E.S.E. from Mitre Rock, the highest of which dries 8 feet at low water springs. Each of these Beacons has a triangular top-mark painted white with a vertical black stripe in the middle--the triangle on the northern one being inverted.

DIRECTIONS.

According to soundings obtained during the present month, a vessel bound to the northward should keep the beacons on Pass Island in line from the time when Quoin Hill is on with Tyne-yung-shan Peak, bearing about W. S., till the southern end of the middle one of the Rocky Islands is on with the Fort bearing from it W. by N. 4 N., and then haul out so as to pass about 3 cables to the eastward of Black Rocks. The least depth found with the Beacons in line was 15 feet at low water of the lowest spring tides--about half-way between the north side of Middle Island on with Town Point and the last bearing given above.

The Beacons on Slut Island, if brought in line when Inner Rock bears East and kept so till Mitre Rock bears West, will lead well clear of all known dangers.

All bearings given are magnetic.

The following Report of the Head Master of Queen's College is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 21st January, 1898.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Colonial Secretary.

No. 1.

QUEEN'S COLLEGE,

4th January, 1898.

SIR,-I have the honour to forward herewith the Annual Report on this College for the

year 1897.

1. 681 boys were admitted in the course of the past twelve months, raising the total Roll from 531 in January to 1,212 in December. It is thus evident that we have in the same year been practi- cally

dealing with two separate schools, an old and a new one, each as large as the old Central School, whose record total attendance in 1888 was 634. It is a somewhat formidable undertaking to organise in one year an entirely new school of 600 scholars; but the task of suitably accommodating and classifying an inrush of 600 new candidates for admission is even more complex.

2. The total accommodation provided is 924 seats. We had a monthly attendance of over 900 scholars, during seven months of the year; the largest numbers being 961 in September, 950 in May, 942 in June. The attendance 900 has only been touched in one previous year, viz., 1891, when the College was a novelty; in March and April of that year the figures 919, 932 were attained, to fall however before its close to 744, whereas in December last 866 boys were present.

3. This sudden access of numbers is due to a natural spontaneous cause, which we may therefore reasonably expect to prove abiding. A demand for European education has arisen, during the last two years, throughout the length and breadth of China. Native English teaching schools have sprung in Canton, Swatow and the neighbourhood of Macao; while even in Yokohama, the Chinese coin- munity are about to open a school where English, Japanese and Chinese will be taught.

up

4. It is a matter of congratulation to the Government, that the original estimate of 700 seats, made by Dr. STEWART in 1882, was not adhered to. Ten years ago, I recommended 770 as a minimum, and subsequently 924 as a maximum accommodation; alleging as a reason the overcrowding in the Central School, owing to the want of capacity in the building to meet the demand, increasing every decade. From a financial point of view, too, it must be satisfactory to have 224 extra montlily fees, without additional cost in the way of increased staff.

5. My experience at the old Central School, with its 450 boys, taught me, that it was only when the demand exceeded the supply, that regular attendance could be enforced with the necessary strict- ness. Chinese are like most other people, they value most what there is some difficulty in obtaining. If a guardian finds that his boy's seat, vacated for some trivial cause, is taken in his absence by another, he learns to respect the exigencies of school routine. I am therefore glad to draw attention. to a pronounced improvement this year in attendance.

6. The total amount of Fees collected this year has been $13,460 or $3,500 in excess of last year's revenue from this source, and beating the previous record in 1895 of $12,667. It should be remem- bered that the largest amount of Fees collected in the old Central School was $6,899 in 1888, and prior to my arrival in 1882, $4,051 in 1881.

7. It should be manifest, that the introduction of so many new boys has necessitated very rapid promotions; this will be the more evident when it is understood, that of the 587 new boys (not including 94 re-admissions) 443 went to the Preparatory, 115 to the Lower, and 29 to the Upper School, 22 of these last being admitted to the non-Chinese classes. As a consequence 8 Boys from Class IV were examined in Class II, 24 from Class V in Class III; and more remarkable still 23 boys from Class VII were examined in Class IV, and 12 from Class VIII in Class V. From these speci- mens, the intensity of the upward impetus may perhaps be estimated.

8. Three little books on English Conversation were prepared by myself, at the instance of the Governing Body, and printed at the expense of the Government early in the year. But as the cost necessitated excess of the amount provided for this item, the Government more than re-imbursed itself by selling to scholars the balance of these stores in hand. His Excellency the Governor then approved of my recommendation that all books, published in the Colony for the express use of this College, should cease to be included in School Stores, the expense of which is defrayed by the Fees paid in Vacation Months. Scholars were therefore instructed to procure such books for themselves at shops.

9. The immediate result was, that a very useful bilingual vocabulary long in use in manuscript form, prepared by the Second Master (Mr. A. J. MAY), was approved by the Governing Body and published.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 21ST JANUARY, 1898.

39

       10. Towards the end of the year, I submitted three suggestions, which, on the recommendation of the Governing Body, received His Excellency's approval. The object aimed at in all of them was the same, viz., the increase of English-teaching power throughout the College, as follows:-in the Preparatory School, by abolishing Monitors and appointing an extra Chinese Assistant;-in the Lower School, by relieving English Masters of Mathematical lessons in the Upper School; a com- petent Native Mathematical Master to be appointed, thus leaving the English Masters at liberty to give lessons in English Reading, etc. to classes in the Lower School;-in the College generally, by increasing the English Staff by two Masters. The scheme is to divide the Assistant Masters into two Grades, Senior and Junior, four in each, thus providing eight instead of six English Masters, at a slight additional cost to Governinent, the services of two Chinese Assistants being, of course, dispensed with. Mr. JAMESON's resignation affords opportunity for the appointment of ore of these additional masters, the full realisation of the project having to await a further vacancy in the Senior Grade.

11. Mr. JAMESON, absent on leave, resolved not to return to the Colony as he has found the climate prejudicial to his health; he accordingly resigned from the 30th September. During his nine years' service, he proved himself a capable and energetic master, all the classes under his charge pass- ing with very high percentages at the Annual Examinations. The College experienced another serious loss, in the untimely death, last August, of Mr. CHU TSUN-CHING, Third Chinese Assistant, for many years most successfully in charge of the Fourth Class. Mr. CHU was head boy of the Second Class, at the first Annual Examination conducted by me on my arrival in January 1882, and with one excep- tion was the oldest of the Chinese Assistants, who began their professional career under my manage- ment. Being of a happy, cheerful disposition, he was a general favourite with the whole Staff, English and Chinese. Mr. BARCLAY, who acted for Mr. JAMESON, left in July on obtaining an appointment as Head Master of an English School at Nanking. We were fortunate in securing the services of Mr. HANKEY, in October, to supply the vacancy. Mr. WooDCOCK returned from leave in the middle of October. In September Mr. JONES, who returned from leave in January, was temporarily transferred to the Supreme Court, as we then were daily expecting Mr. JAMESON'S return.

       12. The rapid promotions amongst the Chinese Staff call for some remark. Mr. LUK SIK-KWONG, who was Second Pupil Teacher last January, is now Acting Sixth Chinese Assistant, which represents a rise of seven steps in twelve months. No fewer than 17 different men were Acting Monitors and Pupil Teachers. Considerable strain has therefore been put on all the Junior Chinese Assistants and Pupil Teachers, which was further intensified by the backwardness of their Pupils (para. 7). It affords me much pleasure to be able to speak very highly of the steady courage which they exhibited in cop- ing with these difficulties.

13. Four boys, none of whom was in Chinese dress, obtained Oxford Local Certificates, two Senior and two Junior. As this represents only 18 % instead of our usual 50%, the result is very disappointing. The depletion of the Upper School, referred to in my last Report, is the chief cause, as may be gathered from the fact that only seven boys remained in December to represent I.A. and I.B. classes together.

14. The Hongkong Branch of the Navy League awarded two prizes of $20 each to C. B. HAYWARD and R. PESTONJEE, respectively, for successful Essays on the subjects "The Command of the Sea" and "The Use of the British Navy." The Chairman at the Annual Meeting paid a well-deserved compli- ment to Mr. MACHELL on the instruction given by him to the boys in six lectures. I cannot do better than seize this opportunity for recording my appreciation of the improvement in the general work of I.C. in the past year.

      15. On my return from Japan, in September, I noticed that the entire interior of the building had been coloured and painted. For this we are indebted to the activity of the Acting Director of Public Works (Hon. W. CHATHAM), as previously it had been considered impossible to perform this feat within the limits of the vacation-four weeks. Keeping the interior of a school bright and fresh is not a luxury; it conduces largely to the cheerfulness and health of scholars and masters. I would suggest therefore that, if practicable, the interior should be at least colour-washed, once in four or five years. It is nearly twice that period of time since the original painting of this building.

      16. I regret to have to report, that there is no abatement in the immoral notoriety of the imme- diate neighbourhood of this College, mentioned in my Annual Report two years ago

It would appear, that existing legislation is too cumbrous a machine to set in motion, for the removal of a well known and generally admitted nuisance from a district in the vicinity of several public buildings, a hospital, a Chapel, a large boys' school and the Belilios Public School for Girls.

Attached are the usual Tables.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

GEO. H. BATESON WRIGHT, D.D., Oxon.,

Head Master,

Honcurable J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Colonial Secretary.

SIR,

(Secretary of State to Governor.)

DOWNING STReet,

9th October, 1897.

I have the honour to forward, for your consideration, the enclosed copy of a Report by the Consulting Architects on the plans of the proposed new Goverament Buildings at Hongkong.

2. In view of this Report I consider that the general arrangement of the buildings should be further carefully considered by you, and if you are prepared to recommend the adoption of the suggestions of Messrs. WEBB & BELL, I request that you will send home revised outline or sketch plans to be again referred to the Consulting Architects.

3. These plans should show clearly the general arrangements proposed, but need not give details or be highly finished up; the details can be proceeded with, when the further Report from the Consulting Architects is received.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient, humble Servant,

Governor Sir W. ROBINSON, G.C.M.G.,

GENTLEMEN,

(Messrs. Aston Webb & E. Ingress Bell to Crown Agents.)

19, QUEEN ANNE'S GATE, WESTMINSTER S.W., September 15, 1897.

Hongkong--Plans for Government Buildings--Reqn. 2642.

Having carefully considered the matter and after two interviews with Mr. GALE, we beg to report as follows :---

We are of opinion that the best method of providing a secure foundation for the buildings is by piling with hard wood piles as proposed. But we would urge that instead of grouping the piles under each column, they should be placed at equal distances along the frontage, that their heads should be connected by a grillage in the usual way, and that the Portland cement concrete laid thereon should be continuous. By this construction there would be less likelihood of a dislocation of the entablatures of the colonnade, by the subsidence of any individual point of support.

With reference to the question of cost, we are of opinion that a less costly style of building cannot properly be adopted considering the uses and importance of the buildings. Granite is the local, and, indeed, almost the only available, material, and as the cost of granite, worked and set, is in Hongkong only the price of Bath stone in England, we do not think its use, for the proposed Government buildings, in any way extravagant.

We may as well say here that we have had a careful detailed estimate prepared and priced in accordance with the Government schedule in local use; although the cost appears an astonishingly low one, for buildings of this character, our inquiries have all tended to confirm the official estimate.

48

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

     With reference to the plans under consideration, we think it right to say that considering the difficulties of the site and area, under which they have been pre- pared, great ingenuity has been shown in meeting the requirements as far as possible, but we cannot consider them an altogether satisfactory solution of the problem.

     The order of procedure in the Law Courts in Hongkong does not differ in essentials from that which obtains in England, and the provisions requisite for the orderly and convenient working of the establishment are, generally speaking, the same. There should be a Central Hali, large, lofty, well-lighted and well- ventilated, for the use of the general public having business with the Courts, and to which the public should be almost entirely restricted. From this Hall, direct access should be had to each Court through intervening lobbies. There should be at least two Waiting Rooms for Witnesses immediately wanted. There should be a "Bar" corridor and Reading Room which would be limited to the use of the Bar or, at most, shared by the Judges. There should be a Solicitors' Corridor, with suitable consultation rooms which are most desirable for use in the intervals of the sitting of the Courts. There should be a l'risoners' Entrance, and Detention Rooms, whither they could be directly brought for trial, and whence they could reach, by a special route, the steps leading immediately to the Dock, and by which they could also be removed after sentence.

The Judges and the Bar should have equally distinct entrance and exit, from the purlieus of the Courts. The several accessories should be arranged for the particular use of Judge, Bar, Jury, Witnesses and Public, and placed accordingly. We submit that, in respect of some of the above points, the plans, as they stand, are defective and in others deficient.

We are given to understand that the Registrar's Department and the space allotted to the Bailiffs and Interpreters are necessarily placed on the Ground Floor of the Court block and that the area allotted to them cannot be reduced. This being so we can only come to the conclusion, that the area of Plot No. 1 is in- sufficient for the proper housing of the legal offices. A glance at the plan will show that the arrangements are already somewhat congested and that there is no adequate space available for the proper disposition of the necessary rooms as above indicated, and would render any future extension impossible.

Plot No. 2 is, on the other hand, somewhat sparsely occupied. The handsome western frontage with its double-storied colonnade is for the most part a screen, to small and unimportant offices and the entire centre part of the upper floor, on the north front, is a mere shell to protect from the direct rays of the sun the skylight, which gives a borrowed light to the Entrance Hall of the Post Office. We cannot but regard the interruption of the public footway by the raised portion outside the Delivery Office, as an inconvenience to the public which should be avoided. It will therefore be seen that, while Plot No. 1 appears insufficient for its pur- pose, Plot No. 2 is somewhat in excess of the requirements, and we would suggest for consideration the following schemes:-

Scheme A.-Placing the Courts and their accessories on Plot No. 2 and the Post Office, &c. on Plot No. 1. This would necessitate the raising of a cen- tral portion of the Post Office building an extra storey which could be reached by lifts, and taking into consideration the expensive character of the foundations. the further utilisation of the site, in this manner, seems an economical one.

Scheme B.-The Plots Nos. 3 and 4 (on the accompanying sketch), now the property of the Bank, could perhaps be acquired, and, if so, their cost would be less now than after the other available building and space has been occupied.

We would propose that the Sanitary Board and the Department of Public Works should be located on Plot No. 3, the Colonial Secretary and Treasurer on Plot No. 4, the Post Office on Plot No. 1, and the Law Courts, &c. on the ampler Plot No. 2.

This would concentrate the Government Establishment giving sufficient room for each and facilitate their natural intercourse. It would avoid overcrowd- ing which is especially undesirable and probably leave some margin for any exten- sion which may hereafter be found desirable.

Pending some further discussion of the question from these points of view, it is perhaps premature to offer any remarks on the details of the designs, which you have referred to us.

We return herewith the six drawings and the original papers forwarded to us with your letter of July 27th.

We are, &c.,

ASTON WEBB & E. INGRESS BELL.

REPORT BY THE DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS ON COLONIAL

OFFICE DESPATCH No. 198 OF 1897, REGARDING

THE NEW GOVERNMENT OFFICES, &c.

1. The Report of the Consulting Architects practically condemns the plans sub- mitted in toto. With regard to the Courts much of the accommodation which they consider essential is absent, and the space on Plot 1 is too limited to admit of the construction of such a Court and connected Chambers, Corridors, and Offices as they deem requisite, while future extension would be impossible. For various other reasons they report as strongly against the proposed buildings on Plot 2.

2. They then proceed to make two suggestions: Scheme A. to place the Courts and their accessories on Plot 2, and the Post Office, &c. on Plot 1. Scheme B. to acquire two more plots, and distribute the various buildings required over a greater

area.

3. Both proposals necessitate the preparation of entirely fresh plans.

I am not now in a position, in the absence of Mr. GALE, to undertake the pre- paration of such plans even in outline and unfinished as suggested by the Right Honourable the Secretary of State, but would ask to be informed if Scheme B. would, under any circumstances, be entertained by His Excellency the Governor.

4. As I find that no provision has been made in the Estimates for 1898 for the proposed buildings, I conclude there is no immediate hurry for new designs: and if His Excellency is of opinion that the first proposal of the Architects which they call Scheme A. should be adopted, I would ask that the matter be allowed to stand over till Mr. GALE's return in April next.

5. I venture, however, now to propose a scheme which has not, as far as I an aware, been put before His Excellency yet, for meeting the undoubted urgent want of the Colony in the matter of better Courts, Post Office, and Offices for certain other of the Departments of the service.

6. The arrangement and condition of the present Offices is very fully de- scribed by the Committee appointed to report on the subject in 1896, and with that description I concur except as regards the Public Works Offices. I do not con- sider these Offices badly arranged or too small for present requirements, and it is quite possible to improve the lighting of the side of the building now deficient in that respect.

The description of the buildings occupied by the Courts, the Post Office, the Land Office, the Treasury, and the Registrar General is by no means too strongly condemnatory. It must be patent to all that "the requirements of the Colony have entirely outgrown the accommodation at present available."

7. The proposals I now wish to submit to His Excellency are briefly as

follows:-

(a.) To adopt the recommendation of Messrs. ASTON WEBB and INGRESS BELL and devote Plot No. 2 on the new Praya to the new Courts and their accessories, calling on those gentlemen to prepare a suitable design, worthy of the Colony and of this prominent site. (b.) To devote the site now occupied by the Courts and the Post Office

to a new Post Office and Treasury.

(c.) To acquire" Beaconsfield " permanently for the accommodation of the Education Department, the Registrar General, and the Sanitary Board-the Colonial Secretary, the Auditor and the Public Works Department continuing as at present to occupy the Offices in St. John's Place.

8. There seems to be no reason whatever why the Courts should be in close proximity to any of the other Public Offices while the arrangements I propose would bring those Offices together, which for the facilities thereby afforded for the transaction of public business, should be intimately connected.

50

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

   On the other hand, there is much to be urged in favour of keeping the Post Office on the present site; it is very central, close to the Banks, the hotels, the busiest part of Victoria, and the pier at which all mails and passengers will land.

   9. The Harbour Department should, I think, certainly have new Offices on the Reclamation in front of the present Harbour Office, and I note that the estimated cost of the building is $110,000.

10. The question of store accommodation for the Public Works Department is pressing, but should, I think, be dealt with separately as it in no way affects the other proposals.

11. Financially my proposals would work out as follows:-

Cost of new Courts, &c. on Plot No. 2,

.$400,000

Cost of new Post Office and Treasury,... ........ 150,000

Cost of "Beaconsfield,"

Cost of new Harbour Office,

On the other side:--

80,000

110,000

Total,

$ 740,000

Sale of Plot No. 1, 33,724 square feet at $10,......$337,240

Sale of site of present Land Office and Crosby

Store, 16,078 square feet at $10,.... Rents now paid or to be paid next year for Offices

capitalized,..

160,780

80,000

Total,-

578,020

say, $

$ 162,000

Net cost of proposed new Offices to Government,

   12. In estimating the cost of the new Courts and new Post Office I have been guided by the cost per cubic foot and per square of floor of buildings already erected and being erected on the new Praya. These are handsome buildings of first class workmanship, and I think their cost may be taken as giving a good idea of what the Courts would cost. I learn the Club buildings including all fittings, &c. cost $170,000.

   13. Should my proposals meet with the approval of His Excellency the Gov- ernor I would suggest that the Consulting Architects be furnished with an exact plan of Plot No. 2, and photographs of the New Club, Messrs. BUTTERFIELD & SWIRE'S Offices, and the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank and elevations of those buildings in order that, if possible, the designs for the new Courts may harmonize with the adjacent buildings.

   The design for a new Post Office could, I consider, be made locally, from its position, no striking architectural effects would be necessary or desirable. The elevation should follow that of the new buildings in Queen's Road such as the Chartered Bank, and the internal arrangement of public rooms and offices could probably be better decided on the spot.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your obedient Servant,

R. D. ORMSBY, Director of Public Works.

REPORT OF THE PROCEEDINGS

OF THE

PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE,

At a meeting held on the 13th January, 1898,

PRESENT:

The Honourable The Director of Public Works, (Chairman).

The Honourable The Colonial Treasurer, (T. SERCOMBE SMITH). The Honourable C. P. CHATER, C.M.G.

The Honourable T. H. WHITEHEAD.

The Honourable E. R. BELILIOS, C.M.G.

Subject for consideration:

51

"The Scheme of the Director of Public Works for New Government Offices."

The Chairman reminded the Committee that at a previous meeting no resolu- tion had been proposed, but the subject had merely been discussed and its con- sideration postponed.

Since then a different scheme for the New Government Offices had been pre- pared by an Honourable Member of the Committee and circulated, and he left it for the Committee to decide whether they can discuss that scheme as well, seeing that it had not yet been before His Excellency and referred to them for report. The Committee decided that both schemes should be considered.

After discussion, it was proposed by the Honourable the Treasurer and seconded by the Honourable Mr. BELILIOS that the scheme of the Director of Public Works be approved by this Committee, and its adoption recommended to His Excellency the Governor.

The Committee divided with the following result:--

Ayes.

The Hon. the Treasurer.

The Hon. E. R. BELILIOS, C.M.G. The Chairman.

Noes.

The Hon. C. P. CHATER, C.M.G.

The Hon. T. H. WHITEHEAD.

The Chairman declared the resolution carried.

The following protest was handed in by the Honourable T. H. WHITEHEAD. Mr. WHITEHEAD desired that his protest should be recorded against the Honourable E. R. BELILIOS, CM.G., being permitted to second and vote, the honourable n.ember being directly and pecuniarily interested in the question under consideration, the question being that the Government should purchase "Beacons- field," a property owned by the said Mr. BELILIOS, and Mr. WHITEHEAD further desired to refer, in support of this protest, to May's "Parliamentary Practice," 9th Edition, page 420, where the rule as to Members of Parliament is laid down in the plainest language. It reads---

(C

"In the Commons it is a distinct rule that no member who has a direct pecuniary interest in a question shall be allowed to vote upon it, "but in order to operate as a disqualification this interest must be "immediate and personal and not merely of a general or remote character. On the 17th July, 1811, the rule was thus explained "by Mr. Speaker ABBOTT this interest must be a direct pecuniary "interest and separately belonging to the persons whose votes were "questioned and not in common with the rest of His Majesty's

Mr. WHITEHEAD also desired to refer, if further authority is necessary, to Buckley's Companies Acts, 7th Edition, page 542, where it is laid down that although no Director shall vacate his office by reason of his being a member of any firm having contracts with the Company of which he is a Director,

theless he shall not vote in respect of such contract or work, and if he does so vote his vote shall not be counted."

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

MR. CHATER'S PROPOSAL.

The scheme I now beg to propose for the future accommodation of the Govern- ment Offices is as follows:----

GENERAL SCHEME.

1. To adopt the recommendation of Messrs. AsToN WEBB and INGRESS BELL and to build the Law Courts and accessories, including Land Office, on Plot No. 2

e., the back and larger block in front of the City Hall.

2. To build on Plot No. 1, i.e., the front Lot on the Praya Reclamation, a block of Offices, the Ground Floor being for Post Office, First Floor for Treasury, Assessor and Sanitary Board, and Second Floor for Public Works Department.

3. The existing Government Offices, St. John's Place, to be occupied on First Floor by the Colonial Secretary, Auditor, Council Chamber, &c. as at present, and the Ground Floor, now occupied by the Public Works Department, to be given to the Registrar General's and Education Department.

     4. A new Harbour Office to be built on the Prava Reclamation in front of the present Harbour Office, as recommended by the Director of Public Works.

    5. My reasons for proposing a scheme differing somewhat from that recom- mended by the Director of Public Works are as follows:-

ADVANTAGES OF SCHEME,

6. The Post Office would be on the new Praya facing the Harbour and in the natural site for same, mails can be expeditiously and safely landed and des- patched at a wharf opposite the site, which is not usually used by launches and ferry boats, these going to the Ice House Street and Pedder Street Wharves.

    7. The proposed site, and not the present position, of the Post Office will, in the course of a short time, be in the very centre of all the Banks, Insurance Offices and principal European and Indian merchants of the Colony, and these are by far the principal users of the Post and not the Chinese, who will in a few years entirely surround the present Post Office and Law Courts. The proposed site would be convenient for the Military and Navy, and also those frequenting the Law Courts and Land Office, who constantly require various description of stamps.

    8. By placing the Treasury, Assessor, Sanitary Board and Public Works Department in the same building, communication, which is frequent between these Departments, is rendered casy and the transaction of public business greatly facilitated.

    The Public Works Department will also have in the proposed new Offices ample light, which is very deficient in the present rooms.

    9. It is very desirable that a building on the front block, facing the Harbour, should be at least three stories high or the building will be dwarfed by the adjoin- ing blocks on either side which are four stories.

    10. By utilizing the Ground Floor of the Government Offices, St. John's Place, the Education and Registrar General's Departments, are brought to the same building as the Colonial Secretary's, which would be very convenient, as the two latter Offices are held by the same Officer.

FINANCIAL

    11. As regards the financial part of the question, I will take, as far as possi- ble, the figures given by the Director of Public Works, and it will be found that my proposed scheme is at, practically, the same cost as that of the Director of Public Works, while it centralizes all the Government Offices and provides new buildings in a good position in place of detached Offices and old buildings.

12.

Courts, 25,867 square feet at $12,............ 310,404 Rents now paid or to be paid next year for Offices as estimated by the Director of Public Works, capitalized,

Total,

80.000

53

551,184

Net cost of proposed new Offices to Government, say,. $ 199,000

13. The net cost shewn above of $199,000 is against the net cost shewn by the Director of Public Works of $162,000 for his scheme, and I venture to think that the convenience to public and accommodation gained would justify a far larger expenditure.

14. I have taken the value of the site of the present Land Office and Crosby Store, 16,078 square feet at $10 per foot as given by the Director of Public Works, but for the site of the present Post Office, I am confident that $2 per foot more would be obtained, owing to the superior position and frontage.

15. As for the value of Plot No. 1 on the new Praya Reclamation, put down at $10 per foot by the Director of Public Works, I fear that it will be a consider- able time before so large a piece of ground can be sold at such a price.

16. I wish to point out that no allowance appears to have been made for the sale of the ground at present occupied by the Harbour Office, which land is in a most valuable part of the City and is worth about $15 per foot, the area is about 8,000 square feet and therefore the net cost to the Colony of the new buildings should be reduced by $120,000.

17. I wish to record my opinion that the plans for the new Public Offices should be made by local architects of standing who, I think, by their experience of local requirements and construction, are far more likely to produce a satisfactory and economical building than any firm of architects in England. The work already executed in this City seems to me quite proof enough of the ability of the local architects to undertake the proposed buildings which, I may mention, are not so large as the blocks now being built on the Reclamation.

HONGKONG OBSERVATORY,

15th January, 1898.

SIR, --I have the honour to submit my annual report for 1897 to His Excellency the Governor. My thirteenth volume of "Observations and Researches" was published at the end of last year. My four- teenth volume is now ready. It contains the third edition of "The Law of Storms in the Far East," which was finished in 1896. The typhoons about which little was known in 1883, when the Obser- vatory was built, have since been so thoroughly investigated that they are now among the best under- stood atmospheric disturbances in the world, and it is almost certain that any amount of further investigation based on observations made here or on board vessels at sea would add nothing whatever to our knowledge. For further contributions to this branch of science we must now look to experi- ments made in physical laboratories in Europe and America and to analytical investigations based upon such experiments.

2. During my absence on leave during the summer and autumn Mr. F. G. FIGG acted for me, and I found everything in good order on my return. Mr. FIGG has investigated the typhoons of 1897, but has not met with any new facts. Although some of the typhoon-paths that occurred in 1897 are rare, they had occurred before. Early last year the Manager of the Eastern Extension, Australasia, and China Telegraph Company requested me to arrange a code for transmitting meteorological obser- vations and information about typhoons. In submitting a code, as desired, I explained that the cir- cumstances obtaining out here were such as to preclude any advantage being obtained from any code as far as the transmission of the observations was concerned. Later, during the autumn, the Manager adopted my views and arranged with Mr. FIGG's assistance a code for transmitting storm-warnings only. This code has been published by Mr. FIGG by order of the Government, and has been adopted by the Telegraph Company.

3. The comparison of the weather forecasts, issued daily about 11 a.m., with the weather sub- sequently experienced has been conducted on the same system as last year (Comp. Annual Report for 1896 § 5). We have:

Success 65 %, partial success 31 %, partial failure 3%, total failure ? %.

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 :----

96% of the weather forecasts were successful.

    4. At the beginning of February, 1897, the storm-signals, invented by Admiral FITZROY in 1861, were introduced in Hongkong, and the typhoon-gun was fired when the drum was hoisted.-On the 14th September at 9 p. the North Cone was hoisted. It was blowing N by E 5 at the time. The maximum wind force (11) was reported from Gap Rock on the 17th at 6 p. On the 18th at 5.30 a. the Cone was lowered. On the 5th October at 11.15 a. the North Cone was hoisted. It was blowing NE 4 at the time. The maximum wind force (7) was reported from Gap Rock at 11 p. on the same day. On the 6th at 2.25 p. the Cone was lowered.-On the 17th November at 11 a. the North Cone was hoisted. It was blowing NNE 2 at the time. The maximum wind force (8) was reported from Gap Rock at 2 p. on the same day. On the 18th at 6 a. the Cone was lowered.-The Drum was added to the Cone and the gun fired on the 17th September at 2.30 p. At 5 p. on the same day the anemograph at the Observatory registered 56 miles.

    5. In spite of the great advantages accruing from the adoption of the system of storm-signals in use in England and other countries, it has been decided to revert to the system in use here from 1884 to 1896 inclusive. This has been decided on the suggestion of the Committee of the Chamber of Commerce, who stated : "Those signals, having been in use for 13 years, were becoming gradually

56

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

more and more understood and rightly interpreted by the boat and seafaring people as the time went on, as is always the case, the Committee believe, when a system of signalling is introduced. They likewise convey to masters of ships intimatious of the state of the weather at a distance on the voyages on which they are about to sail, information which the present storm-warnings do not supply."

6. The China Coast Meteorological Register was printed daily at the Observatory, and inform- ation regarding storms was telegraphed to and exhibited on notice-boards in Hongkong and other ports in China and neighbouring countries as often and as fully as such information could be justified by the weather telegrams received. This happened on 69 days in 1897.

    7. Telegraphic connection with Victoria was interrupted on the 16th April, 1897, from 10 a. to noon; from the 8th May at 8.12 a. to 9th May at 8.12 a.; on the 18th May from 11.45 a. to 2.26 p., from the 21st at 5.50 p. to 23rd May at 6.48 a.; on the 23rd May from 10.15 a. to 1.34 p. ; on the 24th May from 1.10 a. to 9.8 a.; on the 27th May from 4.13 p. to 5 p.; from the 30th May at 11.55 a. to 31st May at 1.34 a.; on the 5th from 4 p. to 6.45 p.; on the 17th June, from 1.10 a. to 6.20 a. and from 7.26 a. to 10.30 a.; on the 15th July from 2.58 p., to 7.54 p.; on the 28th August from 9.50 a. to 10.43 a. ; on the 8th November from 11.25 a. to 0.20 p. Interruptions occurred therefore on 16 days, and, of course, during thunderstorms.-Telephone connection with the Peak was inter- rupted on the 15th January from 6 a. to II a. ; from the 8th April at 8 a. to 10th April at 6 a.; from the 1st August at 11 a to 2nd August at 10 a.; from the 17th September at 5 p. to 18th September at 6 a.; from the 6th October at 6 a. to 20th October at I p.; from the 13th November at 6 p. to 15th November at 6 a., i.e., on 26 days as well as during thunderstorms.

    8. During 1897 in addition to meteorological, registers kept at 40 stations on shore, 2,635 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 283. The total number of days' observations (counting separately those made on board different ships on the same day) was 20,899.

During the past year 7 barometers, 5 aneroids and 10 thermometers were verified. In addition, several hundred barometers and aneroids on board ship were compared with our standard. 12. The following table shows the spectroscopic rainband as observed daily at about 10 a. The mean value for the year was 2.1.

    13. Mr. PLUMMER observed 402 transits for time determination in 1897, and the axis of the tran- sit instrument was levelled 171 times, ie., upon each day when observations were made. The rates of the standard clocks are given in the accompanying tables (III and IV), and are compared with the rates given by the formula at the head of the tables. No alteration has been made to either clock during the year, and although it was found necessary to clean the contact springs of the sidereal standard clock on November 29th, this was effected without in any way interfering with the going of the clock.

   The errors of the Time Ball are given in table V. The time ball has twice been under repair, namely, from March 5 to 10, when the base of the piston was found to have been shattered, and a new brass base was fixed to it by the Hongkong and Whampoa Dock Company in place of the original cast iron one; and again from July 13 to 19, when the zine tube within the ball was found to be crumpled up and pressing against the mast. On July 7 the lock was under repair. There were five failures of the time ball in 1897, viz., on March 11 owing to an error of the workmen in centering the new brass base of the piston; on June 25, in consequence of the discharging spring being too weak; on July 6 because the tooth of the lock (being much worn) allowed the piston to jamb against the opposite side of the cylinder; on July 8, because the Assistant failed to raise the piston high enough to free the tooth of the lock and on July 12, for the reason already given as rendering the repairs necessary on the days immediately following. The ball is not dropped on Government holidays and on one other occasion (Sunday, May 9) in consequence of the illness of two Assistants it was inter- mitted. It was successfully dropped 332 times in this year. The probable error was in January +033, in February ±019, in March +016, in April +012, in May +016, in June ±0:09, in August +0:13, in September ±010, in October +0:14, in November

14. Observations for latitude by Talcott's method have been continued throughout the year and 1359 observations of pairs of stars have been observed, distributed as follows:- In January 101 pairs, in February 61 pairs, in March 7 pairs, in April 51 pairs, in May 134 pairs, in June 26 pairs, in July 144 pairs, in August 152 pairs, in September 165 pairs, in October 147 pairs, in November 230 pairs, in December 141 pairs. The relative numbers give a clear indication of the way in which the atmospheric conditions interfere with astronomical observations in Hongkong. From the 1st June till the 31st December Mr. Plummer made all the observations.

15. 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

                                                           The solar radiation thermometer is placed at the same height. The rim of the rain-gange is 105 feet above M.S.L., and 21 inches above the ground.

16. 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 barograms.

      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 ther- mometer. 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.

      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.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

    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 (cun-str) is the well known thunder clond, 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.

17. The following annual Weather Report for 1897 is arranged as follows:-

Table VI. exhibits the mean values for the year (or hourly excess above this) obtained from the monthly reports. The total duration of rain was 1036 hours. There fell at least 0.01 inch of rain on 166 days.

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

    Table VIII 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 half 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 IX. 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 X. shows the frequency of clouds of different classes.

Table XI. is arranged as last year.

Table XII. exhibits the monthly and annual extremes.

The extremes of humidity and vapour

tension are only approximate as the hourly values are not calculated.

Table XIII. contains five-day means.

Tables XIV., XV., XVI. contain magnetic observations.

18. Observations of magnetic declination and horizontal force were made with the unifilar magnetometer Elliott Brothers, No. 55, and the dips were observed with dip-circle, Dover No. 71.

    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 3.44905 at 24°. The value of P was +5.818. The mean value of the magnetic moment of the vibrating needle was 0.44872 in English units and 585.84 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 are 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).

Appendix A.

THE LAW OF STORMS IN THE EASTERN SEAS.

INTRODUCTION.

    The first chapter of the following paper treats of the law of storms and was first published in Hongkong in September, 1886. It was read before the British Mercantile Marine Officers' Associa- tion on the 17th May, 1893. It is now reprinted with later additions. The second chapter treats of the management of ships in typhoons, and was originally included in the pamphlet on the law of storms. It was read as a separate lecture before the Shipmasters' Society, London, on the 16th January, 1896, and is now reprinted with a few additions. The third chapter was printed in the Government Gazette. The fourth and fifth chapters, on different classes of typhoons and on winter- typhoons in the southern part of the China Sea, appeared in "Zeitschrift fur Meteorologie" in 1897.

Plate I illustrates the different classes of typhoons enumerated in § 4. Figure 1 shows how the wind blows in a typhoon as determined by aid of observations made at the Hongkong Observatory during the years 1884-87 inclusive. Figure 2 shows a typhoon in the Formosa Channel on the 21st and 22nd August, 1884. The height of the barometer is noted near the isobars. The arrows fly with the wind, whose force is given in numbers. The large arrow shows the direction in which the whole disturb- ance was progressing. Figure 3 shows a typhoon that was lying a little N of Formosa on the 17th July, 1890. The number of feathers on the arrows indicates half the wind-force, e.g., 5 feathers means force 10. Figure 4 shows a typhoon in the China Sea on the 15th November, 1891. Figure 5 one on the 20th November, 1891, that was moving towards SW. Figure 6 one on the 13th November, 1895. § I.-THE TYPHOONS IN THE EASTERN SEAS.

    It appears that typhoons in the China Sea originate in elongated slight depressions, which some- times lie across the Philippines as well as the China Sea, but usually exist only over the sea extending sometimes far into the Pacific. To the north of them it blows moderate NE breezes and south of them somewhat less strongly from the SW. The NE breezes reach generally only as far as northern Formosa in summer, but in autumn the NE (and farther north the NW) monsoon blows much farther north. Sometimes the SW breezes to the south of the axis of the depression are stronger than the NE breezes to the north of it, and extend apparently down to the equator and are probably a continuation of the SE trade. To the E of these depressions in the Philippines there are light S and SE breezes. In Anuam it probably blows from the N. In summer these depressions begin with rising pressure in the interior of China or in Japan. In autumn it seems the pressure rises slightly near the equator and SW winds extend gradually northward over the China Sea. In January and February depressions do not occur. During the rest of the year they occur about once a month on an average. During the summer months and in autumn they frequently give rise to a typhoon or a small circular depression. The trough-like depression then ceases to exist. In spring they do not alter into typhoons but cease to exist owing to the NE monsoon filling them and spreading to the southward.

The depressions have their major axes lying E and W, or ENE and WSW. Their average latitude from June to September is 17° N, later more southerly, and in November perhaps 10° N. They do not appear to move at all, and they may be traced for 3 or 4 days. The barometer is read little more than a tenth of an inch lower in the axis than along the coasts all round them. Along these coasts light winds circulate against the hands of a watch. In such depressions the weather is squally and wet, and the wind variable,-frequently in heavy squalls with great downpour of rain, but thunder is seldom heard. It appears that in such squalls S wind happens to extend itself northwards and N wind south- wards, and revolving storms are thereby generated. If this occurs in the middle of the China Sea, it is likely to give rise to a typhoon. Of course, it more often happens that a circular storm originates near the E and W end of the elongated depression as the winds there already revolve as in a rotary storm except to the W or E of the centre forming, so that the N or respectively S squalls need only gain ground on one side, but in such cases only minor circular depressions or very small typhoons are originated.

When the trough stretches from south of Hainan through the Bashee Channel right out into the Pacific to the south of Japan and the NE and SW winds on either side of it are fresh or strong, the conditions have often been mistaken for two typhoons, one in the China Sea and one to the south of Japan, before ever any typhoon was formed.

The heavy rain is, of course, not the cause of the phenomena, for the rain itself is caused by the air rising in the axis of these depressions, also the water-vapour condensing gives out heat and thus in the first instance makes the mercury rise in the barometer before a squall, but there cannot be any doubt that the quantity of water-vapour condensed to form perhaps 10 inches of rain per day, and whose pressure is thus abstracted from the barometric pressure of the air, causes the permanency of the depressions. It is different with the rainfall in the SW monsoon. That is spread over a large area and does not give rise to a low pressure in one spot surrounded by higher pressures.

It is rather difficult to say whether a depression in the China Sea, when its existence has been ascertained, is a typhoon or only a minor disturbance, but if the following signs are observed exactly as now to be explained, then it is certain to be a typhoon. A minor depression gives signs less well marked and more confused.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

       The earliest signs of a typhoon are clouds of the cirrus type-looking like fine hair, feathers or small pale white tufts of wool-travelling from the east or thereabout, their direction backing towards the north, a slight rise in the barometer, clear and dry but hot weather, calms or very light winds. If cirrus come from W, they prove that there is no typhoon. If they come from the S, then there may be a typhoon more than 600 miles to the southward. This fine weather lasts for days and the existence of a typhoon at a great distance is a cause of fine weather all round and contributes therefore to the safety of ships at sea, a fact that is not sufficiently appreciated by mariners.

       The cirrus clouds, which frequently assume fantastic shapes, make their appearance within 1,500 miles of the centre of a typhoon. They show that water-vapour has risen about 6 miles in the atmosphere through the air rising near the centre. The barometer is generally rising beyond 600 miles of the centre, and the mean of the twenty-four hours' temperature rises in Hongkong above 81 deg. Halos round the sun and the moon, phosphorescence of the water and also glorious sunsets with grand twilight rays, appear to be frequently noticed before typhoons.

Cirrus radiate from various directions but when there is a typhoon, and the radiation is very distinct, it is usually from the same direction as the bearing of the centre.

An increasing swell in the sea is noticed from 300 to 600 miles from the centre, or farther off, but this depends greatly upon the situation of the nearest land, and particularly upon whether land intervenes between the observer and the typhoon centre. The swell arises from the heavy seas that accompany a typhoon, and form the real danger to ships, which are usually well fit to stand the force of the wind without too serious damage. As the velocity of waves in the sea is much greater than the velocity of the centre, the swell is frequently of great help in forecasting a typhoon, but it appears that the bearing of the centre is not well determined from the swell; besides the swell would indicate where the typhoon was at a certain tine previous when the waves that caused the swell were raised by the wind. For instance, N of Formosa, i. e., between the E coast of China and SW Japan there is usually a heavy E to SE swell, when a typhoon centre is approaching from SE or E, and the sea there gets very high when the centre is yet at a great distance. A heavy cross swell is a certain indication of a typhoon, except near rocky land, where cross swell may be caused by reflection of the direct swell. The cross swell arises from the heavy confused cross seas raised by strong winds from different directions round the centre.

        Within 600 miles of the centre the sky is often half overcast with cumulus, above which cirro- cumulus is seen, the sky being frequently paled by high and faint cirro-stratus. S and SW of and beyond 200 miles of the centre, thunderstorms and cumulo-stratus are seen. They may also occur to the W and E of and as close as 250 miles to the centre, but there they are rare, at least during the NE monsoon. In fact, the belief of the Chinese that where there is a thunderstorm there will be no typhoon appears to be well founded. If thunder and lightning should appear to the N of the centre, little or no rain falls at the time. The old accounts of typhoons are probably sometimes to be explained. as mere thunderstorms, while on the other hand during a typhoon the noise of the wind and waves might easily be mistaken for thunder.

       On approaching nearer than 500 miles to the centre, the cloudiness increases, and the mercury begins to fall slowly (seldom as much as a tenth of an inch in 24 hours) in the barometer. Then the air becomes oppressive, a slight haze is observed during the morning hours, and the sky presents a threatening and vaporous appearance. The weather is then most unhealthy and depressing. Many people find it impossible to get any sleep owing to the very high night temperature. All sorts of vermin, including snakes, spiders, beetles, and typhoon flies (dragon flies), are unusually active.

Within 300 miles (or in different typhoons between 200 and 400 miles) of the centre there is a heavy cross sea, which therefore gets up some time before, and lasts longer than the wind. Within 250 miles in front of the centre the sky becomes overcast, and the temperature falls in consequence.

       Within 200 miles of the centre the temperature falls quickly, owing to the heavy roll-cumulus with which the sky is densely overcast. About this distance, just in front of the centre, the air becomes sometimes abnormally dry, and the sky at the same time presents a peculiar black and ominous appearance. And meantime the wind has risen and blows generally with the force of a strong breeze rising to a moderate gale in the squalls. But this depends also upon the bearing of the centre, the wind being usually strongest in the right-hand semi-circle. Within 200 miles of the centre there is usually a mountainous cross sea.

The

Within 200 miles to the N, and within 150 miles in front of and to the S of the centre, heavy rain begins to fall, and within 60 miles (or from 60 to 150 miles) it pours down in torrents. temperature near the centre in Hongkong is often about 78° and over the China Sea 76°, but on board ship a temperature as high as 83° has been registered, but that is very unusual.

       The dimensions of different typhoons vary much and near land the strong winds are often so irregularly distributed than in a place near the centre less wind may actually be experienced than at some distance farther away from it. The approach of the centre is judged by the fall of the mercury in the barometer and by the increase in the strength of the squalls.

No conclusions can be drawn with certainty from the reading of the barometer concerning the distance of the centre. The readings differ in different typhoons occurring during the same month and are also different in different months (owing to the annual variation in monthly mean pressure). Taking the mean of several typhoons I obtained at 40 miles 29.20, at 50 miles 29.30, at 100 miles 29.40, and at 200 miles 29.50.

70

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

The force of the wind is also different according to the dimension of the typhoon. On an average we have force 12 within 35 miles of the centre, force 11 at 50 miles, force 10 at 75 miles, force 9 at 110 miles, force 8 at 145 miles, force 7 at 180 miles, force 6 at 220 miles, and force 5 at 250 miles; but it often blows force 6 at 300 miles from the centre and then the area with strong wind is increased in proportion. Within from 2 to 15 miles of the centre the wind calms down, or nearly so, and the sky usually clears overhead, more or less. at sea (or over an island), being now covered there by only very light clouds or haze, through which the sun or the brighter stars are visible. The sea is often seen to boil like a cauldron. Its surface has been whipped into foam, and a lot of air has been caught by the waves, which escapes under the low air pressure in the bull's eye of a typhoon. The sea is as a rule moun- tainous and confused, but sometimes near land it calms down when the diameter of the calm area exceeds 20 miles. Quantities of sea-birds, and, closer to the shore, also land-birds, butterflies, an:1 other insects cover a ship caught in the centre of a typhoon. The centre of the calm area, round which the wind circulates, does not always exactly coincide with the point where pressure is lowest, i.e., the centre of the isobars. It has been found that the calmn followed some 20 miles after the lowest barometer reading, but such is not always the case, and the reverse has been suspected on more than one occasion. Very deceitful lulls occur during the raging of a typhoon. They last sometimes long enough to be mistaken for the central calm, but when the wind rises again it comes from nearly the same direction. Thus in case of typhoons moving W or NW in the China Sea in summer there is sometimes an area, some 60 or 70 miles behind or to the S of the centre, where the wind falls to a fresh or strong breeze, which again increases rapidly and even a couple of hundred miles farther away it blows stronger than over that area. The diameter of the central calm in a low latitude in summer is about 4 miles, and the sea is mountainous from all directions, but farther north or late in the year the diameter reaches sometimes from 40 to 50 miles, and the sea then often goes down together with the wind, but the character of the bull's eye is then less well defined. The weather becomes dry, though in one or two cases torrential rain has been registered within the central cali. Inland in China the bull's eye has never been observed.

At the

When the wind rises in a typhoon it blows in gusts and the mercury heaves in the barometer. When the wind has reached force 11 it blows in fierce squalls of sometimes about 10 minutes' dura- tion, while the mercury heaves up and down as much as a tenth of an inch. The mercury often gives a jump upwards as the wind begins to veer in a squall. Then it drops down and gives another. upward jump as the wind comes back to nearly its old direction. During these squalls an enormous quantity of rain falls in a few minutes. The temperature falls and rises a fraction of a degree or more. The wind does not return to quite the former direction, except just in front of the centre. time when the centre is nearest, a fierce squall is usually felt, and in that squall the direction of the wind changes considerably, and the barometer begins to rise. The squalls appear to be caused by an up-and-down movement of the air. As the air comes rushing down the rain drops evaporate in the hotter stratum near the earth's surface, and owing to the increased tension of water-vapour, the barometer (after a fall caused by the cold of evaporation) begins to rise. The wind veers towards the direction of the wind above, which latter is known from the motion of the clouds. Then the air starts to rise with a deluge of rain, caused by the condensation of vapour arriving at the cooler stratum above, while the barometer (after a rise caused by the heat of condensation) drops down, owing to the cessation of the pressure of water-vapour condensed into the rain fallen, and the wind resumes the direction determined by the central depression; for the latter is so great in a typhoon and gradients so steep near the centre that subsidiary depressions have never occurred in the China Sea.

    It is a fact that more damage to vessels is caused by the fearful seas than by the wind. For- tunately masters of ships are now making use of oil to calm the waves, a remedy which has been used with good effect for the last three thousand years. Thick oil is best-mineral oil is of no use- and it should be allowed to ooze out of canvas bags half full of cotton waste and slung from the weather bow, or it may be left to ooze out of other openings, such as water-closets. It is still more effective when fired from the vessel towards approaching seas from mortars or rockets.

On shore perhaps as much damage is caused by rain as by wind; but, of course, the former adds impetus to the latter. The wind blowing from all sides into the centre raises the level of the sea there, and the sea-surface is also raised about a foot for every inch the barometer falls below its height outside of the typhoon. When this storm-wave approaches the shore near the time of high water, which somehow seems to happen rather often, it raises the sea, and is apt to cause extensive and disastrous inundations over low-lying shores, as the crests of the waves (which at sea may be 30 feet high or more) on entering shoal water may rise 60 feet or upwards above sea-level in a typhoon.

The incurvature of the wind in a typhoon depends upon the monsoon. In May, June, July, and August the angle between the wind (direction whence coming) and the bearing of the centre is 11 points in front of the centre, 10 points in the right-hand quadrant, 12 points behind the centre and 11 points in the left-hand quadrant. During September, October, and November it is 11 points in front, 11 to the right, 12 in rear, and 11 points to the left. This shows that the monsoon blows in towards the centre and combines with the cyclonic winds. It will be remarked that the wind blows across the path in front and helps a vessel to run across the path in front of the centre, keeping the wind on the starboard quarter 3 points from the stern. In rear the wind blows more straight in towards the centre, and it also blows stronger in rear than in front.

71

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

      The angle depends also upon the distance from the centre. At 25 miles it is 10 points (very uncertain), at 75 iniles it is 11 points, at 125 miles it is 11 points, at 150 miles it is 11 points, at 200 miles it is 12 points, at distances greater than 300 miles the centre bears perhaps about 15 points from the wind (very uncertain).

      The angle depends also to some extent upon the latitude though south of Northern Formosa the connection cannot be traced. But in 30° N the average angle is about 10 points and beyond Japan 9 points might perhaps be allowed.

       These rules fail, however, near some shores if the centre is not very close. Thus there often blows a steady E gale along the S coast of China when a typhoon is crossing the China Sea. The wind blows into the China Sea through the Balingtang Channel and blows along the S coast of China from E. If the centre is passing to the southward at a distance of several hundred miles, this reminds one of the NE monsoon, but now it blows harder the lower the pressure falls, while in the NE monsoon it blows harder the higher the pressure rises. About the N entrance to the Formosa Channel, one of the windiest places in the world-the gale blows often steadily from NE while there is a typhoon to the S moving westward. Again near the coast of Annam, the wind is likely to hang long about N. This action of the coastline in certain localities favours sometimes the birth of a typhoon, thus when the NE monsoon has set in along the S coast of China, and blows from N along the coast of Anuam, the SW monsoon (deflected towards the right) is hemmed in by the Island of Palawan and forced into a more southerly direction to the W of Mindoro, and it is found that typhoon centres are formed near that locality; and also SE of Hainan in an area one side of which is exposed to strong E wind coming through the Balingtang Channel, the other to SW winds when pressure is high near the equator.

      As far as Hongkong is concerned, the following table, constructed by aid of observations made here during the years 1884-1887 inclusive, gives the details. The first column shows the direction

of the wind at the Observatory, the second the direction of the wind at the l'eak, the third the direction whence the clouds are coming, and the fourth the bearing of the centre. The results differ from the rules given above because the centre is inland whenever its latitude is greater than that of the Obser- vatory, except far away to the NE, and as soon as the centre of a typhoon enters the mainland it begins immediately to fill, ceases to exist as a typhoon, and can be traced as only a slight depression :-

      Very low clouds in a typhoon move with the wind, but if the clouds are higher they move round the centre in front and to either side, but more in towards the centre in rear. A heavy nimbus cloud passing to leeward causes heavy squalls, veering or backing regularly; and to windward it has the opposite effect. The cause of this is obvious.

A

      The wind blows from a region where the air pressure is higher towards one where it is lower. It is, however, deflected towards the right in the northern hemisphere. The force of the wind depends upon the difference of pressure between one place and another situated in the direction where the barometric slope or gradient is greatest. The gradient is measured in hundredths of an inch per 15 nautical miles. The force of the wind corresponding to a certain gradient is greater the hotter the air is, and is different in a typhoon from what it is in the trade, owing to the path of the air particles being curved. They are almost logarithmic spirals, but somewhat different from such curves. gradient of 0.01 corresponds to force 4, 0.02 to 6, 0.03 to 7, 0.04 to 8, 0.05 to 9, 0.06 to 91?2, 0.07 and 0.08 to 10, 0.09, 0.10 and 0.11 to 11, 0.12 and above this to 12. The steepest gradient usually met with is a third of an inch in 15 nautical miles. Gradients above this are rare, but sometimes they are much greater.

The steepest gradient (1 inch in 15 miles) ever met with occurre in a low latitude in the Pacific. That corresponds to a wind velocity of perhaps about 160 miles per hour at sea level. Such velocities are not uncommon at an altitude of 2,000 feet in severe typhoons. Anything above 80 miles per hour is called a typhoon. It is seen that there is as great difference between the force of one typhoon and another as between a calm and a storm which nearly reaches typhoon force.

      When a typhoon is blowing it is of great importance to have a house well shut-up. Windows and doors should be firmly locked, bolted and barred. Damage is frequently caused by shutters being out of repair. Once the wind enters a broken window, it begins to blow through and its force is then quickly felt.

          As long as all apertures are thoroughly shut on both sides a fearful howling and whistling is heard, the rain blows in through the smallest openings and the house may shake, but damage is seldom done. Should a fierce squall get the chance to blow into a house, the roof is often the first part to give way. It is believed that pressure falls so quickly outside that the air confined in the house bursts through the roof like an explosion, but there is no foundation for that belief; it is more likely that a fierce squall would break through the windows and doors and through the roof as well. But if any fear is entertained of the air being confined inside, it is merely necessary to leave the chimneys open so that pressure inside will be nearly the same as on the outside.

      In many typhoons the barometer, reduced to the temperature of freezing water and to sea-level, does not fall below 28.80 inches. In others it falls as low as 28.50. Lower readings are rare, but sometimes it falls much lower.

     No typhoon ever stands still. As soon as it is formed, it is carried forward by the prevailing wind. That is why the isobars are elongated, except near the centre where the force of the prevail- ing wind is of no account. The isobars could be circular only in a stationary typhoon. That is also why typhoons move so as to keep the areas of high barometer on their right, and so as to recede from areas where the barometer is high, and so as to approach low-pressure areas. Most of the typhoons that originate in the Pacific to the East of the Philippines o Formosa move Westward at first, then NW, then N., then they recurve to the NE, and beyond Japan they move Eastward. That is under the influence of the high-pressure area in the Northern Pacific, which they rotate around in the same direction as the hands of a watch. When there are two typhoons about at the same time, they rotate round each other in the opposite direction, that is, abstracting from the influence of the high-pressure areas, which may cause them to move somewhat differently from this simple rule. In the China Sea there is sometimes a low-pressure channel between high pressures in China and in the Southern part of the China Sea.

          of the China Sea. A typhoon in the Pacific at such times is attracted towards the China Sea and passes along the low-pressure channel, because the winds blowing to either side of this channel agree with the winds round the centre of a typhoon, and they move according to the principle of least action. During the typhoon season typhoons follow each other quickly, and there are often several at one time raging in different parts of the Far East. Then they cease, and there are none maybe for several weeks; but during the height of the season in August and September that is most unusual.

      As explained above, the paths of typhoons in the Pacific look often like parabolas, but those in the China Sea are quite different and the difference must be due to the distribution and land and sea. The latter do not as a rule recurve, i.e., move North-eastward after having moved North-westward and Northward. Some of them, in fact, disappear in the China Sea after turning to the SW. Others recurve between 20 deg. N and 40 deg. N, and between 115 deg. E and 130 deg. E. The Middle Dog lighthouse at the Northern entrance to the Formosa Channel is the centre of the region of recur-

         * Curved lines drawn on a map through places from which the same height (corrected and reduced) of the barometer is reported or between those that report a slightly higher and lower pressure are called isobars. The gradient lies at a right-angle to the isobar. These are the most important elements for forecasting the weather. The curvature of isobars indicates the existence of depressions beyond the area where the telegraphic reporting stations are situated, but it is of course impossible to lay down the centre accurately from such data, e.g., while over the sea its position and motion can only be guessed at, not known with certainty.

Typhoons cease to exist, except as minor depressions, as soon as the centre enters the mainland. The centres of different typhoons often enter the coast in the same place: where it is low, as for instance, the Lien-chau peninsula; near Huilingsan; the Canton river, etc. during squalls in hot and damp places near sea-level and over the sea.

The typhoons originate Storms in N China originate higher up in the air on the mainland across which they move, and they do not appear to increase in strength so quickly as the typhoons, when the centre reaches the sea. Islands-even Formosa with its high mountains-do not affect a typhoon's path much though they tend to break the typhoon up, to some extent, as is particularly noticeable in case of typhoons remaining long over the southern Philippines or crossing Formosa moving from S towards N. On the contrary, open channels such as the Balingtang Channel, the Formosa and Korea Channels, have much greater effect on the path. It has already been remarked that the progression of a typhoon is the effect of the wind prevailing at the time at or near the earth's surface. Now, the wind rushes with such force through open channels, with more or less high mountains on both sides, as to deflect the typhoons and accelerate their speed. This is sometimes seen in the China Sea, when the centre of a typhoon is moving slowly northwards. As soon as the centre approaches the latitude of the Balingtang Channel, the centre bends its way suddenly to the Westward, and rushes towards Hainan perhaps thrice as quickly as it moved before. Typhoons entering the Formosa Channel and at times the Korea Channel are deflected to the West- ward and have their speed accelerated by the strong NE winds in those Channels. SW monsoon is strong, the typhoons move in some Northerly direction. It is only late in the

As long as the when the NE monsoon happens to blow very fresh that typhoons move South-westward in the China year Sen.

Typhoon of July 17

1890

     The average rate of progress of the centre of a typhoon in 11 deg. latitude is 5 miles an hour. In 13 deg. it is 6. In 15 deg. it is 8. In 20 deg. it is 9. In 25 it is 11. In 30 deg. it is 14, and in 32 it is 17 miles an hour. South of 13 deg. the speed does not vary perceptibly, so it is useful for mariners to know it, but it is more variable the farther north you go. In 324 deg. N it ranges from 6 to 36 nfiles an hour, so that you cannot be sure that a typhoon encountered there will travel at anything like the average rate of speed. We have not traced the centre of a typhoon nearer to the Equator than about 9 deg. N. But a very slightly falling barometer, a squally SW wind, a lumpy sea, and some swell, may at times be traced nearly all the way down to the Equator.

The prevailing wind not only carries the centre along with it, but combines with the rotary storm, causing the wind in the right-hand (the dangerous) semi-circle to be stronger and to blow more nearly round the centre than in the left-hand (the manageable) semi-circle, where the wind is more moderate and blows with greater incurvature towards the centre. It also causes the wind to blow nearly straight in towards the centre behind the typhoon and to blow more across the path in front of the centre. It also makes the weather heavier after the centre is past than it was while the centre was approaching.

     Less than half a mile up in the air the incurvature of the wind towards the centre disappears in the average of the different quadrants, but it still blows in towards the centre in the rear.

                                         It is really the wind at this altitude that carries the typhoon along, for late in autumn there are every year typhoons that move along against the NE monsoon, but we know that that monsoon is at times very shallow and there is SW wind above it. These typhoons disappear sometimes suddenly; evidently when the NE monsoon increases in depth and intensity.

At a still higher level the air, which has been carried in towards the centre and raised over the area where it is raining, blows away from the centre, and as the friction of air against air under low pressure is insignificant, it sometimes rushes away with such speed as to cause the upper air to be sucked down into the central calm. This is the reason why the sky clears over the bull's-eye.

     Typhoons originating in the Pacific in a low latitude (say 13 deg. N) are very small and very fierce. The isobars are nearly circular, as the centre moves very slowly, and the incurvature is 45 deg. in all directions; but there is this important difference between a typhoon and a tornado-that the latter is taller than it is broad, whereas the former forms a flat disc. As typhoons reach a higher latitude their dimensions become greater, the violence of the wind near the centre abates, and then there is nothing to distinguish them from storms originating in northern latitudes. This makes it most unlikely that the latter originate from causes at all different from those which give rise to a typhoon.

§ 2. HOW TO MANAGE YOUR SHIP IN A TYPHOON.

75

Long before the nature of hurricanes was understood it had been remarked by mariners that it was safer to leave to in a storm than to run, but the reason of that was not apparent. When the law of storms was first discovered it did not all at once mend matters, for, according to the old eight-point rule, all you had to do when a typhoon approached was to run with the wind on the star-board beam under as much canvas as your ship could carry, except when on the path right in front and the centre moved quicker than the vessel. That should have taken you out of the neigh- bourhood of bad weather, but it did not always do so, and since typhoons have been investigated, we know that the wind never blows round the centre in a circle, and that the eight-point rule, laid down by Redfield, Reid, Thom, and Piddington, is very far from the truth. It is just as much out as Espy's rule, according to which the wind blows always straight towards the centre. According to the twelve-point rule, which I have proved to obtain in typhoons (see "Observations and Researches made at the Hongkong Observatory in 1885") you must still run on the starboard tack, but you must keep the wind only four points from the stem. A steamer can do so easily enough, but it is not possible to keep a vessel going ahead under square sails nearer than about six points to the wind. She therefore cannot within two points run straight away from the centre and her risk is much greater than it would be if the old rule had proved true. The twelve-point rule may be stated as follows:-Stand with your back to the wind and you will have the centre on your left and about four-points in front of your left-hand. It appears that a ten-point rule obtains in about 30 degrees latitude and a sailing vessel can then just manage to steer, full and by, a course that will take her straight away from the centre; but in a tropical hurricane we see thit the danger is much greater even if the force of the wind were not stronger.

The force of the wind and the appearance of the weather do not furnish a trustworthy guide to determine the distance of the centre of a typhoon. The dimensions are different in almost all typhoons, and near land the strong winds are often so irregularly distributed that in a place near the centre less wind may actually be experienced than at some distance farther away from it. In such cases the approach of the centre is judged of by the fall of the mercury in the barometer.

But on the high sea the increase or decrease in the strength of the squalls, and the state of the weather and sea, enable the approach of the centre to be known, and this, together with its direction which is known from the direction of the wind and perhaps also from the clouds, enables the master of a vessel at sea to lay down the path of the typhoon, with reference to his vessel, with more or less accuracy. The great difficulty is, that the typhoon may be increasing or decreasing in violence and the barometric depression getting steeper or filling up. To the eastward of the Philippines and near their western shores the former is likely to take place, while the latter would probably happen near the western shores of the China Sea. In such cases it may become more or less impossible for a seaman to know how the centre moves, except in so far as he can judge by published paths of previous typhoons.

Once the bearing of the centre has been ascertained from the direction of the wind, you require to know in which semi-circle your vessel is situated if in the right-hand semi-circle the wind will veer, i.e., shift with the sun, and in the left-hand semi-circle it will back, i.e., shift in the opposite direction. But this rule fails if your vessel is moving with the typhoon and quicker than the centre is moving. Then the rule may be reversed. Masters of vessels are therefore advised to heave to carly and observe how the barometer behaves aud how the wind changes; but it is so dangerous to lose any time in a storm that carries you into the centre, that this should not be done except when absolutely necessary. You may happen to be right in front of the centre and lose your chance of getting out of its track. Here it is that a knowledge of the paths of past typhoons such as have been annually published from this Observatory during the past fourteen years, becomes so useful. That may enable you to know at once in which semi-circle your vessel is situated, e.g., with NE wind in the China Sea you are pretty certain to be in the right-hand semi-circle. The wind shifts faster the nearer the centre you are, but the direction of the sea does not change so fast as the wind. If the bull's eye of the typhoon overtakes your vessel, the wind bursts again from the opposite quarter, and with perhaps greater violence than before, that is, when the centre is past. Very deceitful lulls occur during the raging of a typhoon and last sometimes long enough to be mistaken for the central calm, but in such a case the wind bursts again from about the same direction as before.

       The rate at which the barometer falls depends upon your approach to the centre, and in con- sequence upon the rate at which the latter is travelling. You cannot therefore safely draw conclusions. concerning the amount of wind to be expected from the rate at which the barometer is falling, but to some extent that may be done. Remember that at sea when the barometer has fallen to the lowest point and is beginning to rise again, you may expect as much, if not more, bad weather than you have already gone through although it will be, on the whole, improving.

       The right-hand semi-circle is called the dangerous semi-circle; there you are carried not only in towards the centre, but also towards the path in front of the centre; besides, the force of the wind is greatest in the right-hand semi-circle, but fortunately the wind usually veers in the squalls in the same direction as it veers with the progress of the typhoon. Here you must make up your mind at

76

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

once which of the following courses open to you you will choose :-Either heave to on the starboard tack (if there is no chance of the centre approaching too near) which will allow your ship to come up to the wind and not be taken aback; or (if in the front quadrant of the dangerous semi-circle) run across the path in front of the centre into the left-hand semi-circle. The incurvature of the wind is less in front of the centre than behind (except in some exceptional case when a typhoon is moving against the monsoon). That helps you to cross the path, and you can run with the wind on the starboard quarter, three points from the stern. If you are within a point, or even two, of the path of the centre, it is generally quite impossible to know in which semi-circle you are, as the wind does not change much, and such change as there is takes place very often in a misleading way. In that case it is decidedly wrong to heave to. Run at once. It may, of course, also happen that you can run close- hauled on the starboard tack if that shortens your voyage and if you have reason to think that the centre will not come down on you.

The left-hand semi-circle is called the manageable or the navigable semi-circle. Here you are carried more straight into the centre, but at the same time the wind carries you towards the path behind the centre, where the danger is less, and moreover the force of the wind is not so great in the manageable as in the dangerous semi-circle. On the other hand, the wind does not always change in the same direction as the squalls. In this semi-circle you can run close-hauled with the wind on the starboard tack, but must heave to on the port tack, so as not to be taken aback when the wind backs. Therefore you cannot run so long in this as in the other semi-circle, or you may not be able to wear your ship, and when you heave to on the wrong tack, you run great risk of being dismasted or having your vessel thrown on her beam ends, when you may have to cut away the masts to right her, although they may not go clean overboard. They will not do so unless all the shrouds and ropes were cut before the mast went, and your vessel may have her bottom stove in when she clears them after they have gone overboard and she is drifting to leeward. A dismasted ship is carried round the typhoon and into the centre in a spiral course. Many a sailer has been lost through being on the wrong tack in a typhoon and, as explained above, you have not always the means of knowing with certainty which tack to choose.

     All this is on the supposition that you have ample sen-room, so much the more as your dead reckoning may be very much out when navigating in a typhoon. Sometimes a master does not know where he is within a hundred miles. It is no unusual thing for a vessel caught in a typhoon in the China Sea, where dangerous shoals abound, to be carried sixty miles out of her course before it is possible to take sights. Lee-way, strong currents, and uncompensated heeling errors account for that. Heave the lead as often as possible.

     When running to the southward across the path of a typhoon moving westward, you will most likely be to the eastward of your dead reckoning from the effect of uncompensated healing error, but this is not always so. If the permanent magnetism of your ship has been properly corrected by permanent magnets, including a vertical magnet to correct the permanent vertical magnetism, and if the induced horizontal magnetism has been corrected by Airy's soft iron balls, and if the induced vertical magnetism has been corrected by a Flinders' bar, then the heeling error ought to be nearly insensible. But, on the other hand, if the semi-circular deviation arising from induced magnetism has been corrected by permanent magnets, then the heeling error may be considerable, say, one point, which may carry you as much as 40 miles out of your dead reckoning in a day. When on the magnetic equator, where there is no vertical force, you should always adjust your permanent magnets. It is better to remove Flinders' bar while that is being done, as it may chance to interfere somewhat by acting as a short horizontal soft iron bar.

     When hove to on the proper tack you should, if you are on board a steamer, keep the engines going ahead dead slow and use oil to calm the sea and prevent it from breaking on board. A small steamer, with insufficient engine power, may resort to a home-made deep-sea anchor. A steamer sometimes rides most casily when stem straight on towards the sea, a position by all means to be avoided by a sailer, who must be kept four points from the wind. Some mariners are in the habit of heaving to stern to wind and sea, or even lashing the helm amidship and allowing the ship to select its own position: that will not do in a typhoon, where a vessel so handled would quickly be carried in towards the centre.

     A great deal now depends upon how you are laden. Much has been said against overloading, but quite as many vessels have been lost for lack of ballast or from shifting ballast, as from overloading. A heavy roller might possibly even be safer than a vessel that keeps very steady from having its centre of gravity high up near the metacentre and consequently little stability. With regard to trim, a vessel behaves usually best on even keel. If she is down by the head she steers badly, and if she is down by the stern, the wind and sea may throw her head off to leeward. A vessel with a hurricane deck has a great advantage over those with solid bulwarks. If in soundings, and she will not come up otherwise, you must clubhaul her, in order to get her head to wind, but it should be sufficient to pay out a hundred fathoms of chain or upwards in order to prevent her from falling off into the trough of the sea. A sailing vessel may when drifting before the wind pay out a long hawser astern but it would be dangerous to try that on board most screw-propelled steamers, as the hawser might foul

77

the screw, when the vessel is pitching in a high sea. When a typhoon is blowing you can not set the spanker to get her up, as the sails are usually blown clean out of the gaskets. Extra strong storm- staysails are carried till they blow away, in order to steady the ship. A sailer usually behaves better than a steamer, as even under bare poles she has enough tackle aloft to offer resistance to the wind and keep her bows out of the water. Should the masts go overboard, a sailer, in proper trim, has still a better chance than a steamer, when her deck is swept by the seas, as the hatches may be more easily kept battened down than on board a steamer with its engine-room skylights, etc., but the way of battening down hatches leaves much to be desired. In 1886 I suggested that they should be screwed down like the covers of the portholes, and you ought not to trust to wedges or even to chains. Lately this suggestion has been taken up, at the Shipmasters' Society, London. Any vessel labouring in a mountainous cross sea near the centre of a typhoon is, however, in a most helpless condition. By that time there is nothing further to be done. It must therefore be your aim to avoid that contingency.

The most dangerous typhoons have been encountered in the Pacific in a low latitude, say 12°, and 130° or 140° longitude. They are so small there and nove so slowly that it ought to be easy to avoid them on board a steamer. They move WNW-ward, and you are safest to the SE-ward of them. You can see such a typhoon coming up in the shape of an arch at first perhaps whitish in appearance, but soon developing into a dark and threatening cloud. Its dark appearance and the extreme slow- ness of its motion,-in fact it does not appear to move at all,-distinguishes it from an arched squall, which is moreover often brighter in the centre. If the direction of the motion of the clouds in it is seen to be nearly perpendicular to the bearing of the top of the arch, then there is no doubt that it is a typhoon. Even in Hongkong I have seen a typhoon approach like that.

If after leaving Singapore bound for Hongkong in the SW, monsoon, you find that the barometer falls more than it ought to, the monsoon begins to freshen in squalls, and you notice a cross swell, a lumpy sea, and other signs of a typhoon, then you ought to shape your course to the south-eastward, so as to sail round the centre and benefit by the favourable SE wind behind the centre. But if the season is late in the year, you had better make sure that it is not travelling south-westward, in which case you may be overtaken by the cyclone. Such typhoons are often the cause of high seas in the Gulf of Siam, but as their progressive motion is usually slow, you can "heave to" in order to make observations without losing ground perceptibly. Up to within the last few years steamers often kept their course and travelled from the navigable into the dangerous semi-circle, where they suffered great damage and delay. But that happens seldom now.

If after leaving Hongkong bound for a northern port you fall in with a typhoon coming through the Bashee Channel, and moving NW-ward into the Formosa Channel, you ought to run to the south- ward, and if bound for Yokohaina you may afterwards shape a northern course along the east coast of Formosa, where the Kuro Siwo current occasionally sets fast towards the NE. As the typhoons are nearly always moving northwards you are usually safest to the S or rather SE of the centre.

Ships between Foochow and Ningpo are liable to experience the NW gales that precede a typhoon travelling westward and about to strike the coast in that neighbourhood. If you do not like to expose your vessel to the high confused seas round northern Formosa, you should run into shelter early, and wait there till the barometer rises and the weather improves and the tide allows you to get out again.

Between Shanghai and Japan you are liable to fall in with a typhoon travelling in any direction between WNW, N and E. You are therefore safest to the S of the centre but that may be in the dan- gerous semi-circle and the wind is strongest there. North of this latitude you would prefer to be W of the centre. Near Japan most typhoons move NE-ward. They generally travel quickly and do not give so long warning as further south. In these typhoons you cannot know in which semi-circle you are till the wind shifts. They are as a rule not so violent as within the Tropics, though sometimes they are just as bad, but the incurvature is not so great.

You all know that though typhoons are dangerous on the open sea, they are still more to be feared in open anchorages and near lee shores, such as in Formosa, where you must be ready to run to sea at very short notice, as you could not lie there with any chance of riding out a typhoon, except in the inner harbour of Takow. When you then experience a N gale and a failing barometer, by far the surest sigus of an approaching typhoon, and appearances quickly get worse, you must run to the SW with the N gale and bring your ship into a most dangerous position in front of the centre (unless there is time to cross the path) rather than remain at an unsafe anchorage. When at anchor up against a lee shore there is not only danger of being thrown on the shore, but also danger of going down at your moorings. The waves running into shoal water are at first very much increased in height, the slope along the wave-front gets steeper, and when in the hollow of a wave that may be forty feet below the crest, there is a chance of having the bottom knocked out of a vessel, except when the ground is soft mud. Waves on the open sea do not exceed thirty feet in height, measured from crest to hollow, but still it is not known how high they rise in a cross sea near the centre of a typhoon.

78

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZEITE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

   A knowledge of typhoons and their paths is often required when you have to decide whether to remain at your moorings or to slip your cable and run for instance a vessel between Hongkong and Swatow in an anchorage sheltered against N and E winds will be safe while a typhoon is moving from E to W across the China Sea, but should the centre move northwards the vessel might be thrown on a lee shore when the wind backs through W to S.

I

A steamer at anchor, when a typhoon is approaching, should get up steam and a sailer should, if possible, take down the top masts as soon as it blows a fresh breeze in the squalls. With reference to a sailing vessel the time when to begin striking the top masts must, of course, depend upon the extent to which she is undermanned. Striking the masts increases the rolling. A sheltered anchorage must be selected, and when the centre passes very near, the berth may have to be changed to the other shore before the wind shifts to the opposite quarter, but along the China coast it does not blow so hard after the centre has entered the mainland as before. A vessel moored by single anchor will swing with the sun in the right-hand semi-circle, and against the sun in the left-hand semi-circle. two anchors are dropped, the anchor on the advancing bow should be let go first. Therefore a vessel in the right-hand semi-circle should first drop her port, and afterwards her starboard anchor, so as to ride with open hawse, and a vessel in the left-hand semi-circle should first drop her starboard anchor. But now it is usual to ride to a single anchor with a scope as long as possible,-over a hundred fathoms should be paid out,-as the strain on two cables at a great angle is more or less increased, and very irregular owing to the labouring of the vessel in the high sea. A second anchor is paid out in line with the first to veer upon if the first should not hold, and a third anchor is kept ready. A vessel depending upon a single anchor, or upon two anchors dropped at an angle, may go ashore if a link should break. The engines can be kept going ahead deal slow unless the steamer is too light, so as to relieve the anchors, but as this increases the irregularity of the strain, you had better stand by, so as to start the engines whenever necessary. Shallow river boats pay out cables on either side so as to help the vessel to keep upright, but at the same time they must have a single anchor paid out ahead to ride to, for no cable at a great angle could stand the strain caused by a typhoon.

A vessel in ballast steaming ahead dead slow may at times entirely relieve the strain on the cables and then fall off into the trough of the sea. Should theu a squall strike her broadside, she is pretty sure to drag her anchors or even break a link in her cable and go ashore. It is therefore of no use turning the propeller slowly if she is light, and especially not if she is down by the stern, as it only increases the yawing and dragging.

   With reference to typhoon anchorages in China beginning with Hainan, we have Backli bay (19° 7′ N. 108° 39′ E.) with shelter against winds between NNE. and S. only. It is not a very good har- bour, and the natives are not to be trusted. In southern Hainan we have Yulinkan bay 18° 12′, 109° 33′), an excellent typhoon harbour in case the centre is to the S. of Hainan, as often happens. Gaalong bay (18° 13′, 109° 34′) may also be used. Maniu harbour (19° 57', 109° 52′) can be used when the centre is to the north of Hainan. Hunghom bay (20° 17', 110° 23′) is shallow and is not often used except when no better place is within reach. Hui-ling-san (21° 34', 111° 47') and Namo harbour (21°?35′, 112° 34',) are available between Hainan and Hongkong. Near Hongkong is the excellent barbour by Saint John's Island (21° 40′, 112° 42′,) which is commonly used. Vessels of great draught anchor to the S. of the position given. Tongku harbour (22° 35′, 113° 55') is used in case of typhoons crossing the China Sea. It offers no shelter against W. winds. This is at the mouth of the Canton River. Higher up the river ships anchor under the Bogue forts although typhoon centres pass over that spot, but then it does not blow so hard as out at sea, when the centre is inland. Inside the Capsingmoon pass to the W. of Mahwan is shelter against typhoons, but Chingwan bay (22° 22′, 114° 6) is one of the best harbours in China. In consequence it is too crowded during a typhoon. To the NW. of Stonecutter's Island (22° 20′ 114° 8') launches find shelter. Tytam bay to the S. of Hongkong is an excellent harbour. Deep bay (22° 17', 114° 16') gives better shelter than Kowloon bay (22° 181, 114° 13′) but some vessels prefer the latter as the storm-signals can be seen from there, A position between Taipintong and the Channel Rocks makes the best anchorage. Mirs bay (22° 334', 114° 27') under Pengchau offers shelter to vessels bound for Hongkong from a northern port. Between Mirs bay and Swatow there are no very good typhoon harbours, but shelter may be found against NE. winds. By Namoa Island (23° 28', 116° 57') is excellent anchorage. Tongsang har- bour (23° 47′, 117° 35′) is much used, and also Amoy harbour. Makung harbour (23° 32', 119° 33') by the Pescadores is excellent. In Pihquan harbour (27° 10′, 120° 31') there is good shelter against NE. winds to vessels under 15 feet draught. The Haitan Straits (25° 26', 119° 44′) are very much used. There are several anchorages round Chusan. In Luzon there is an anchorage at the entrance to Manila bay, N. of Corregidor Island (14° 25', 120° 33′). On the S. coast of Mindoro we have Garza bay (12° 13′, 121° 11′).

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

WEATHER-FORECASTS AND STORM-WARNINGS.

METEOROLOGICAL SIGNALS.

      Meteorological Signals are hoisted on the Mast beside the Time-Ball at Kowloon Point for the information of Masters of Vessels leaving the Port. They do not imply that bad weather is expected

here.

A DRUM

Indicates a Typhoon to the East of the Colony.

A BALL

Indicates a Typhoon to the West of the Colony.

A CONE

A CONE

Point Upwards indicates a Typhoon to the North of the Colony. Point Downwards indicates a Typhoon to the South of the Colony.

     RED SIGNALS indicate that the Centre is believed to be more than 300 miles away from the Colony.

     BLACK SIGNALS indicate that the Centre is believed to be less than 300 miles away from the Colony.

NIGHT SIGNALS.

TWO LANTERNS Hoisted Vertically indicate bad weather in the Colony and that the wind is expected to veer.

     TWO LANTERNS Hoisted Horizontally indicate bad weather in the Colony and that the wind is expected to back.

     The Signals are repeated on the Flagstaff of the Godown Company at Kowloon, and also, by day only, at the Harbour Office and on H. M.'s Receiving Ship.

LOCAL STORM-Warnings.

     The Colony itself is warned of approaching Typhoons by means of the TYPHOON-GUN placed at the foot of the Mast, which is fired whenever a strong gale of wind is expected to blow here.

NOTICE BOArds.

     Observations made at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. are exhibited shortly after 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Notice Boards placed at the Eastern Extension, Australasia and China Telegraph Company's Offices, at Peddar's Wharf, at the Harbour Office, and at the Office of the Kowloon Godown Company.

     Weather-forecasts and Storm-warnings are exhibited daily about 11 a.m. and also at other hours, day and night, whenever necessary while Typhoons are raging in the Far East.

     The China Coast Meteorological Register is exhibited about Noon (Sunday's and Government Holidays excepted).

THE LAW OF STORMS.

Further information concerning the weather to be expected while signals are hoisted, and sailing directions, are given in "The Law of Storms in the Eastern Seas."

     Shipmasters may obtain by telegraph the latest information as to weather at any station reporting to this Observatory by payment for a reply of at least ten words (ie., twelve words including the address). Application may also be made for similar information to be telegraphed on some future specified day.

Steamers

When the red drum is hoisted the weather is generally fine in Hongkong, and settled fine if the centre moves northward, so that this signal does not by any means imply bad weather here. bound for northern, western or southern ports should then lose no time in starting, as they may expect more or less fine weather. Those bound for the Philippines should take precautions to avoid the cyclone as explained above. Sailing vessels bound for western or southern ports should lose no time in starting, but those that are bound for the north or east ought to remain in the harbour awaiting information, as they may expect to fall in with calms or contrary breezes after starting, even should the wind be westerly here at the time.

80

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

     More or less persistent SW winds, at times accompanied by thunderstorms, may be expected when the red cone pointing upwards is hoisted, and ships leaving the port are not likely to run any risk from the typhoon. Sailing vessels bound for the north should start as soon as possible so as to benefit by the southerly breezes to run through the Formosa Channel, and avoid the way round Formosa. By following the latter route a sailer, moreover, runs the risk of falling in with the next typhoon east of Formosa, particularly during the months of August and September.

A cone pointing downwards usually implies fresh E veering to SE winds in Hongkong. As such a typhoon may travel N and NE, the master of a vessel desirous of avoiding bad weather should consult the latest weather-intelligence or remain in port till the barometer rises. Then the danger is past.

     When a ball is hoisted ships starting for northern, eastern, or southern ports may expect breezes from E round to S and SW. Those starting for western ports run no risk as long as the glass continues to rise. Should it ever happen to fall: heave to and, if necessary, take refuge in a typhoon anchorage such as Saint John's harbour.

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 inean 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 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

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 :

as

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.

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 did not presume to forecast those.

The typhoon gun has been fired 27 times one round, since the Observatory was started on the 1st January, 1884, i.e., 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).

There was 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 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 in the Observatory that took place in the meantime, and with the increase in the number of telegraphic reporting stations. Detailed particulars concerning every typhoon that occurred during the past thirteen years and every warning issued have been published in the "Government Gazette" and in the "Observations and Researches" issued yearly from here.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

Instructions for keeping the Meteorological Log.

81

Observations should be made every four hours, and the latitude and longitude of the vessel should be entered at each observation.

If convenient an observation should be made in or near Hongkong.

Observations are required between 10° South and 45° North latitude and between Singapore and 180° E of Greenwich.

When a mercurial barometer is read the thermometer attached to it is also entered.

When an aneroid is read no thermometer reading should be entered.

Force of wind is given from 0 to 12, and weather in Beaufort's initials.

      For further particulars the "Instructions for making Meteorological Observations prepared for use in China" published in 1883 by the writer, may be consulted.

The forms are forwarded free through British Post Offices in China if addressed on service. They should be posted as soon as convenient after the vessel enters Hongkong harbour. Vessels bound for London from ports in the China Sea should post the forms in Singapore.

In 1896 the total number of days' observations made on board 325 ships and forwarded to this Observatory was 18,541 (counting separately those made on board different ships on the same day).

The surest of all warnings is furnished by the standard barometer on shore and the compensated aneroid on board ship; you are all right if you can put your vessel on the tack that will keep your barometer rising. But in order to understand the indications of the barometer you will have to keep a regular meteorological register. The master of a vessel who does not look at his aneroid till he is in a typhoon, does not derive half the benefits from his observations that he would have enjoyed had he watched it beforehand. He might perhaps have avoided the weather he is now experiencing, or even have benefited by the favourable winds and sailed round the typhoon. No doubt, the time is approaching when underwriters will stipulate that the indications of an aneroid or a marine barometer must be regularly registered on board a vessel insured by them.

On the other hand it would not be fair to ask the mariners to keep complete meteorological records, such as are kept in the lighthouses out here. Some seamen have a taste for this kind of work and make very useful and fairly accurate observations, but, for instance, the readings of dry and damp bulb thermometers taken on many vessels are of very little use.

       The tube of the marine barometer has to be so much contracted to stand the incessant pumping and danger of breakage, that the instrument is sluggish and often reads half an inch or more too high near the centre of a typhoon. Some cheap wooden barometers cannot be registered below a certain height, the cistern being too small to hold the mercury that comes out of the tube and there is the great objection to wooden mercurial barometers that the readings cannot be accurately reduced to freezing point and the temperature correction is larger than in case of instruments made of brass. Of course, some cheap aneroids are no better, and even a first class compensated instrument requires to be thoroughly verified, as the scale is never quite correct and the readings depend somewhat upon the temperature and in a manner different for each single instrument, so that general tables for correcting to freezing point are not available, but they act more quickly than the marine barometer, and for use on board ship the instrument that is quickest in its indications must be preferred. The objection to the use of the aneroid is founded on the fact that its index-correction changes gradually; but then this can be determined and allowed for by reading it off as often as the vessel enters a port, such as Hongkong, where correct meteorological observations are constantly being made.

     The best hours for making observations are 4 a.m., 8 a.m., etc., up to midnight inclusive. From 4 a.m. to 10 a.m. the barometer is rising, falling from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rising from 4 p.in. to 10 p.m., and falling from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. It reads highest at 10 a.m. and lowest at 4 p.m. The daily variation is twice as great in midwinter as it is in midsummer. During the approach of a typhoon this regular daily variation may be masked, but it goes on all the same and must be taken into account when the barometer begins to fall before a typhoon. Thus if it has fallen a certain amount between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. you must subtract the normal descent between these hours in order to know how much of the fall is due to the approach of the typhoon, and if it were between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. that it fell, you must add the normal rise for the same purpose.

$4.-ON THE DIFFERENT CLASSES OF TYPHOONS AND THE SEASONS

OF THE YEAR IN WHICH THEY APPEAR.

      In 1886 I expressed the hope that it might be possible to construct average paths of all the different varieties of typhoons, when a couple of hundred tracks were available. This has just been effected on the basis of 244 typhoons, registered during the past 13 years, or on an average 19 typhoons per year. They are distributed among the different months of the year as follows: January 1, February 0, March 1, April 4 (2 per cent), May 10 (4 p.c), June 24 (10 p.c.), July 45 (19 p.c.), August 43 (18 p.c.), September 57 (23 p.c.), October 31 (13 p.c.), November 22 (9 p.c.), December 6 (2 p.c.).

82

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

     In 1884 I suggested the division of typhoons into four classes (Comp. "Observations and Researches made at the Hongkong Observatory in 1884," app. M) but the final arrangement of sub- classes could not then be effected :

Ia

originate in the China Sea (most frequently near 18° to 20° N and 113° to 116° E) north of 15° N and enter, or at least approach the mainland to the W of Hongkong. 10 p.c. of all the typhoons registered belong to this class. They prevail from the middle of June till the end of September. Ia ? originate in the Pacific and enter the China Sea north of 15° N and enter, or at least approach the mainland to the W of Hongkong. 12 p.c. of the typhoons belong to this class. They prevail from the beginning of July till the middle of October. originate in the Pacific and enter the China Sea north of 15° N, move SW and disappear at sea. Only one or two cases of this kind have ever been registered (late in the year). originate in the China Sea and move N, but describle vastly different paths, moving in various directions between W, round by N, to ENE. Sometimes they recurve after entering the mainland They occur from June till the end of September, but they are most common at the beginning of the typhoon season (4 p.c.).

Ib

le

Id

originate in the China Sea, where they recurve, and sometimes move into the Pacific passing near South Formosa. They occur from May till September incl. (2 p.c.). Typhoons of classes Ia and Ic (26 p.c. of all typhoons) are frequently felt in Hongkong.

CLASS II.

Ila originate in the Pacific, enter the China Sea north of 15° N, and enter China to the E of

Hongkong. There they pass (IIa) N, or (Ha,) W. They occur in July, August, and September (2 p.c).

Ilb

IIc

Ild

originate in the Pacific and move into the Formosa Channel. They occur from June to September incl., and are most common in August and September (7 p.c.).

originate in the Pacific, pass N of Formosa, and enter China. They occur from June till September, with a distinct maximum in July (3 p.c.).

originate in a high latitude in July and August and move W-ward into China (4 p.c.). With the exception of Ila, which sometimes cause fierce SW gales in Hongkong, typhoons of Class II are not dangerous to this Colony.

CLASS III.

These typhoons originate and rage mainly in the Pacific.

IIIa

1116

-IIIc

IIId

IIIe

enter the coast of Luzon but recurve (usually before the centre enters the China Sea). They prevail in October and November (1p.c.).

enter the coast of Formosa but recurve, usually in October (1 p.c.). move N and enter Korea in July, August and September (4 p.c.).

recurve in the Pacific and enter Japan between June and October incl. They are most frequent in August and September (15 p.c ).

remain in the Pacific. They occur from May till December incl. Their average latitude decreases on the whole with the altitude of the midday-sun, 10 p.c. of all the typhoons registered belong to this class, but there must be many that are not met by ships and therefore not registered. Their prevalence may be estimated at 12 p.c.).

CLASS IV.

IVa originate in the China Sea south of 15° N and move towards Hainan and Annam. They occur from May till December incl., but are rarely encountered in August (8) p.c.). In November they often originate in about 11° N and 116° E.

IVa B originate in the Pacific and enter the China Sea south of 15° N. They are less common. than those originating in the China Sea, as the long passage across the southern Philip- pines tends to break them up. They occur at the beginning and end of the typhoon season (3 p.c.).

IVO

IVC

IVd

enter the China Sea after crossing the Philippines in a low latitude, and then move SW and disappear at sea. They occur from the beginning of September till the beginning of December, but are most common in November (43 p.c.).

recurve in the China Sea and re-enter the Pacific. They occur at the beginning and end of the typhoon season but mostly in May (4 p.c.).

occur in the Gulf of Siam in April and December (1 p.c.).

The accompanying plate illustrates the average paths of these different kinds of typhoons. The average rate of progress in 24 hours is also marked, but it must be remembered that individual typhoons move in very irregular orbits, whose vagaries have disappeared from the average paths. Also they travel at very different rates. It is presumably as useful to the travelling public, and the freight-carrying public to know where and when typhoons prevail, as to the weather-forecaster, who in default of precise observations reaching him by wire, must forecast according to such paths as these.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 29TH JANUARY, 1898.

§ 5.-WINTER TYPHOONS IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF THE CHINA SEA. In the typhoons of the summer months,-the SW monsoon period,-which move towards WNW or NW in the N part of the China Sea and enter the coast in the neighbourhood of the Gulf of Tongking, the area over which the winds become strong with a decided fall in the barometer in front of the centre is generally small. This is accounted for by the low pressure prevailing over the Gulf of Tongking and the continent beyond it. For the same reason the winds in rear are not only stronger but also long continue, the more particularly as it seems that depressions on entering the coast frequently become diffused over a large area. In the autumn months (September and October)-the NE monsoon period, these conditions are reversed and we find that in frout pressure begins to give way and strong winds usually blow at great distances, while in rear the area over which winds are governed by the depression is comparatively small. Moreover, at this period the depression fills up rapidly on entering the mainland, which is then dry. In consequence a vessel in front of a typhoon, moving as stated, will usually get much shorter notice of the advance of a typhoon from the barometer in summer than in autumn, and while in summer the bad weather lasts a long time in rear, in autumn it improves rapidly when the centre is past and a strong NE monsoon sets in.

                     strong NE monsoon sets in. For instance, N gales frequently blow late in the season off the Annam and Cochin China coasts with a typhoon centre a long distance off on the E side of the China Sea.

       Typhoons of classes IVa, IVb or 1b occur especially late in the year in an unusually low latitude over the China Sea, during the height of the NE monsoon which blows much stronger in these seas than the SW monsoon. Taking as an example of such, the typhoons of the 15th November, 1891, of the 20th November, 1891, and of the 13th November, 1895, it is seen that there is very little W, SW or S wind except within perhaps at most 50 miles of the centre. And to the S or SSW of the centre, where SW gales might be expected their place is taken by dead calms or light variable winds. No stronger argument could be adduced to show that the winds round a typhoon-centre are composed of the cyclonic winds on one hand and the prevailing wind on the other. In these cases where the cyclonic SW gales are combined with the NE monsoon gales, calms are the result. Unfortunately, I have not succeeded in drawing the isobars, as the aneroid observations on board ship are too rough to be of much assistance for this purpose, and the currents are strong, but the isobars might be inferred from the wind-directions laid down on the maps.

       When all the wind forces round the centre of a typhoon are resolved into N and E components, positive or negative as the case may be, and the resultant direction and velocity are computed and compared with the direction of motion and velocity of the centre, it is found that the latter moves from a greater azimuth (counting from N) than the wind. This might be expected as it then agrees with the wind at a greater altitude. These November typhoons move from a direction from 2 to 7 points different from the resultant wind, As the NE monsoon is shallow, this probably agrees with the direction of the wind at an altitude of about half a mile, but the speed is only a fraction of the resultant wind velocity.

   "It is understood that an authorized photograph of a work of art shall enjoy legal protection in all the countries of the Union, as contemplated by the Berne Convention and by the present Additional Act, for the same period as the principal right of reproduction of the work itself subsists, and within the limits of private arrangements between those who have legal rights.

       The present Additional Act shall have the same force and duration as the Convention of the 9th September, 1886.

       It shall be ratified, and the ratifications shall be exchanged at Paris, in the manner adopted in the case of that Convention, as soon as possible, and within the space of one year at the latest.

(Translation.)

Circumstances having prevented action being taken within the period of delay originally fixed for the exchange of the ratifications of the Additional Act of the 4th May, 1896, modifying Articles II, III, V, VII, XII, and XX of the Convention of the 9th September, 1886, and clauses 1 and 4 of the Final Protocol annexed thereto, as well as of the Declaration interpreting certain stipulations of the Convention of Berne of the 9th September, 1886, and of the Additional Act signed at Paris on the 4th May, 1896, it has been unanimously agreed that that period should be prolonged until this day.

     In consequence whereof, the Undersigned have met together in order to deposit the instruments in question.

     Germany, Belgium, Spain, France, Italy, Luxemburg, Monaco, Montenegro, Switzerland, and Tunis have ratified both engagements.

     Great Britain has ratified the Additional Act alone, on behalf of the United Kingdom, as well as of all the British Colonies and Possessions.

Norway has only ratified the interpretative Declaration.

     The respective ratifications having been produced and found to be in good and due form, have been handed to the French Minister for Foreign Affairs, in order that they may be deposited in the archives of the Ministry, such deposit to be held equivalent to an exchange of ratifications.

In faith of which the Undersigned have prepared the present Record of deposit, to which they have affixed their seals.

     Whereas, by Treaty, Her Britannic Majesty has jurisdiction in relation to her subjects within the dominions of His Majesty the Emperor of Japan;

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 54.

The following Report of the Superintendent of Victoria Gaol for 1897 is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 5th February, 1898.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Colonial Secretary.

VICTORIA GAOL,

HONGKONG, 31st January, 1898.

SIR, I have the honour to submit for the information of His Excellency the Governor the following report on the Victoria Gaol for the

year 1897.

2. Mr. LETHBRIDGE had charge of the Gaol up to the 30th March, when he left the Colony and I assumed charge.

3. The number of prisoners admitted to the Gaol under sentence of the ordinary Courts was 4,711, besides 48 soldiers and sailors sentenced by Courts-Martial.

     There were also 54 prisoners imprisoned for debt, and 263 in default of finding security, making a grand total of 5,076; of these 606 were old offenders.

4. The corresponding numbers for last year were:-

Convicted by ordinary Courts, 5,414; by Courts-Martial, 50; Debtors, 63; in default of

security, 55. Total for 1896, 5,582.

5. The daily average number of prisoners confined in the Gaol during the year was 462 as com- pared with 514 in 1896.

I attribute the decrease to the abolition of the Light and Pass regulations, and to the narrowing of the limits within which hawking is permitted in the vicinity of the markets in Victoria.

     6. There were 2,619 reports made by the Prison Officers against prisoners for prison offences, compared with 3,887 in 1896, and 5,365 in the

year 1895.

     7. Discipline has been well maintained, and I am of opinion that the marked decrease is due to greater efficiency of supervision on the part of the Gaol Staff, and to a better appreciation of prison discipline on the part of the prisoners.

The reports during the year were dealt with as follows:-

One hundred and thirty-one cases were dismissed on the report, in the majority of instances,

of the Medical Officer. In 521 cases a caution was given, and

139 were punished with rice and water for 1 day.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 5TH FEBRUARY, 1898.

 8. The new rules and regulations for the Prison came into force on the 29th of March, and the power given under them to the Superintendent to award a maximum of 7 days' solitary confinement, and a maximum of 42 days' separate confinement upon full and penal or reduced penal diet in alternate weeks, has been exercised with marked effect.

9 There were 735 prisoners reported for refusing to labour during the year.

This offence in a prison filled principally with Chinese is a difficult one to deal with.

 Since I have had charge of the Gaol I have only known one European who refused to labour. As a rule Europeans prefer to labour than to sit idle. Chinese prisoners on the other hand, with very few exceptions, would be content to sit in a cell from one year's end to another and do nothing.

 This extreme apathy tends to induce to refusing to labour and undoubtedly accounts for the obstinacy with which Chinese prisoners will persist in refusing to labour.

 I have found separate confinement on full and penal or reduced penal diet in alternate weeks the most efficacious punishment in obstinate cases of this extremely troublesome offence.

10. The number of prisoners reported for having tobacco during the year shows a further decrease. Three Indian Assistant Warders were dismissed during the last 9 months of the year for traffick- ing with prisoners, and since their dismissal the number of cases in which tobacco has been found on prisoners has materially decreased.

 In November and December there were four such cases, but during those months there have been several free labourers at work in the Gaol.

 11. I attach a return shewing details regarding all the whippings that were inflicted during the past year.

 12. The profit in industrial labour during the year amounted to $2,620.08. The balance sheets for each industry are shown in enclosure E.

 13. The report from the Gaol Medical Officer shows 4 deaths from natural causes, and 2 cases of suicide during the year.

The sanitary condition of the Gaol is good.

14. A modern apparatus has been constructed for the carrying out of executions.

 15. A new fire main, with 3 hydrants, has been laid within the Prison walls, and a complete new set of fire-extinguishing appliances has also been supplied.

16. On the 22nd November a commencement was made in carrying out the improvements in the Gaol originally suggested by my predecessor in C.S.O. 1937 together with some additions in the matter of separate cells recommended by myself.

3037 1896

 The principal of the suggested improvements within the Gaol were the increase of yard space by the demolition of D wing; the subdivision of a number of association cells into separate cells; and the extension of the female prison.

D wing has already been pulled down and, with the materials removed from it, 89 association cells are being rapidly converted into separate cells. Almost the whole of the labour is supplied by prisoners. The work is therefore being carried out at very small cost.

There were formerly in the Prison 248 separate cells and 115 association cells.

 Within the next 6 months when the subdivision now in progress will be completed, there will be 427 separate cells, and 26 association cells, which will afford accommodation for 453 prisoners in separate confinement. In cases of necessity 104 extra prisoners can be accommodated by putting 5 prisoners in cach association cell making the total capacity of the Prison 557.

With 427 separate cells it will be possible in all ordinary times to locate every convicted criminal prisoner in a separate cell. This Prison will then be in as satisfactory a condition as it seems possible to render it on the present site.

17. The conduct of the Gaol Staff has been, on the whole, very good. I have already stated in paragraph 5 that the record of prison offences for the year gives evidence of increased efficiency in supervision.

Great credit is due to the Chief Warder for this result, to which the Principal Warders also have contributed materially by the example they have shown of tact and discretion in dealing with prisoners, and by the steady enforcement of discipline.

18. During the year 11 European Warders have been engaged locally. They have been drawn from H. M.'s Naval and Military Forces and have given satisfaction.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your obedient Servant,

The Honourable

INSTRUCTIONS TO OFFICERS APPOINTED TO CARRY OUT THE

PROVISIONS OF THE ACT.

  1. A copy of the statute is annexed to these instructions, and officers are required to make them- selves acquainted with its provisions.

  2. Officers are empowered to board vessels in the waters of the Colony, by virtue of Section 40 of the Police Act, 182, which is as follows:

40. Any inspector, sub-inspector, or any non-commissioned officer of the police force or senior constable in charge of a police station shall, by virtue of his office, be an Officer of Customs within the meaning of the law relating to the Customs for the time being, and shall have power, by virtue of his office, to enter at all times, with such constables as he shall think necessary, as well by night as by day, into or upon every ship, boat, or other vessel (not being then actually employed in Her Majesty's service, and not being a vessel of war the commanding officer whereof shall hold a commission from any foreign Govern- ment or Power) lying or being in any of the waters of the said Colony, or any dock thereto adjacent, and into every part of such vessel, for the purpose of searching and inspecting the same, and of inspecting and observing the conduct of all persons who shall be employed on board any such ship or vessel in or about the lading or unlading thereof, as the case may be, and for the purpose of taking all such measures as may be necessary for providing against fire and other accidents, and for preserving peace and good order on board of any such ship or vessel, and for the effectual prevention or detection of any felonies or misde-

meanours.

  3. Officers stationed at the ports of the Colony must board and carefully watch all vessels arriving at the port, with the view to the powers conferred by the Act being put into operation.

  4. Officers will be expected to exercise their powers with discretion, and not to interfere with any person without reasonable ground for believing that such person comes within one of the classes of prohibited immigrants specified in Section 3.

  5. Section 3, Sub-section (a), is to be put into operation mainly to the exclusion of Asiatics and Africans. Officers will be justified in requiring any Asiatic or African seeking to enter the Colony, or who may have made his way into, or, having arrived after the passing of the Act, may be found in the Colony, to comply with Sub-section (a).

  6. If an officer has reason to believe that any prohibited immigrant is on board any vessel, he shall draw the attention of the master or other person in charge of the vessel to the fact, and to the consequences to the master and owners of the vessel upon any prohibited immigrant landing. (See Section 8.)

  7. Any person who shall fail to comply with Section 3 (a), or who shall appear to the officer to be a pauper or likely to become a public charge, must be prevented from landing from any vessel, or otherwise entering the Colony, unless he shall comply with Section 5 by depositing with the officer the sum of £100.

  8. Any person coming within Sub-sections (e), (d), (e), and (f) of Section 3, must be prevented from landing or entering the Colony absolutely. In case any prohibited immigrant shall escape the vigilance of officers, Section 4 must be put in operation against the immigrant, and Section 8 against the vessel, its master and owners, in the case of arrival by sea.

  9. In case there shall be occasion to put Section 8 into force, officers will seek the assistance of an officer of customs with the view to the vessel being refused a clearance.

10. Officers inust observe Sections 7 and 13 in connection with the exercise of powers under Section 3.

J. G. T. BUCKLE,

Clerk of Councils.

The following Bill will be read a first time at a Meeting of the Legislative Council to be held on Wednesday, the 23rd instant.

Council Chamber, Hongkong, 19th February, 1898.

A BILL

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to amend the Prepared Opium

(Divans) Ordinance, 1897, (No. 15 of 1897). Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as

follows:

J. G. T. BUCKLE,

1. Section 2 of Ordinance 15 of 1897 is hereby repealed. Repeal. 2. In lieu of section 2, the following section is substi- tuted :-

In this Ordinance, unless the context otherwise requires, the expression "Opium Divan" shall include any house, room, or other place-

(a) Used for the sale of prepared opium or dross

opium to be smoked on the premises, or (b.) Used by the public for the smoking of prepared opium or dross opium where a fee, or its equivalent, is charged, or the dross resulting from such smoking is retained by or on behalf of the keeper for his benefit.

3. In clause (e.) of section 6 of Ordinance No. 15 of 1897 the words "or a bona fide member of such keeper's family," are, hereby, struck out.

Object and Reasons.

This Ordinance amends Ordinance 15 of 1897, in two particulars: --

95

Ist. It substitutes a new definition of "Opium Divan

instead of that contained in section 2 of Ordinance 15 of 1897. This amendment has been approved by the Secretary of State.

2nd. It strikes out the words "or a bona fide member of such keeper's family." These words were not contained in my original draft of the Ordinance, but were added during the passage of the Bill through the Legislative Council.

The Secretary of State objected to this addition and requested that an Ordinance should be passed restoring the section to its original form.

The Opium Farmer has been consulted and has no objection to the amendments made by this Ordinance.

W. MEIGH GOODMAN,

Attorney General.

Clerk of Councils.

No. 32.

POLICE OFFIce, HONGKONG, 31st January, 1898.

  SIR--I have the honour to submit the following report on the Government Fire Brigade for the year 1897.

  2. There were 26 Fires, two of which occurred on vessels in the harbour, and 58 Incipient Fires during the past year. Details regarding each will be found attached. The Brigade turned out 40 times during the year.

The estimated damage caused by the fires was $177,150.00 and by the incipient fires $334.50. A list is attached shewing the number of fires that have occurred during each of the last ten

                                                            years with the estimated value of property destroyed in each case.

  3. There were three prosecutions for arson. In two cases the intention was to defraud and in these the prosecutions were successful. The first was in connection with the fire at No. 99, Jervois Street in which three occupants of the first floor, which had no connection with the shop on the ground floor where the fire originated, were smothered by smoke before they could be rescued.

Among the debris on the ground floor were found unmistakeable evidence of incendiarism, and the master of the shop was convicted and sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment with hard labour.

  The second case was in connection with the incipient fire which occurred at No. 231, Queen's Road Central on the 21st of May.

The Chinese Constable on the beat noticed smoke issuing from the house, and forcing an entrance found the cubicle, used by the accountant of the shop on the ground floor, on fire in four different places. With commendable courage and presence of mind he beat out the flammes with an old curtain.

The accountant was convicted and sentenced to 5 years' imprisonment with hard labour. These convictions seem to have had a beneficial effect, for the estimated value of property des- troyed by the 14 fires that occurred up to the 21st of May amounted to $115,950, while the esti- mated value of property destroyed by the 12 fires occurring after that date amounted to $61,200, in- cluding the fire of the 15th June which took place before the second conviction.

4. The latter fire was the most destructive that occurred during the year. Three houses were partly destroyed, and the value of the damage done was estimated at $34,000.

The spread of the fire to the adjoining houses in this case was entirely due to the large and stoutly constructed sunshades existing in Jervois Street, the removal of which had to be effected be- fore the Brigade could work with their ladders. The delay that was thus caused was considerable, and was undoubtedly the cause of the fire spreading.

Since then the shop-keepers in Jervois Street have been induced by Mr. CHATHAM, when Acting Director of Public Works, to make their sunshades moveable so as to avoid such obstruction in future.

5. At the fire in No. 64, Third Street on the 24th of November, 15 persons unfortunately lost their lives. They were occupants of the first floor. The fire originated under the only staircase leading to the floor, and the woodwork being light (as in most Chinese houses) it immediately burned so fiercely that no person could venture down the stairs.

The occupants retreated to the kitchen, and before assistance could arrive the whole floor was in flames and they were suffocated.

The houses on each side of that burned, had ladders leading from the kitchen to the roof, but unfortunately such was not the case in house No. 64.

6. The water in the mains was not turned off at any time during the year.

7. The new floating Fire Engine (the engines and appliances of which are by Messrs. SHAND and MASON) was completed and available for service in February last, and has given satisfaction.

8. I attach a list of places where Fire Despatch Boxes are kept, and of private telephones to which the Police have courteously been granted access in case of fire, together with copy of a report from the Acting Engineer on the state of the various Fire Engines, which are all in good working order.

9. It has not been found possible yet to carry out the extension of the Central Fire Station that I recommended last year. Till that is done it is impossible to effect any material improvement in rapidity in dealing with fires from the Central Fire Station.

160

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH FEBRUARY, 1898.

10. By an acceleration in sounding the alarms, a gain of two minutes has been effected in the turn-out of the firemen at the Central Police Station.

Electric alarms have now been fixed at East and West Point Police Stations, the Central Fire Station, and Central Police Station, from which further improvement in the rapidity of communicat- ing alarms is expected.

11. On the 11th of May the Nam Pak Hong Fire Brigade was, by the consent of the Committee, placed under the supervision of two European Engine Drivers, who take charge of this auxiliary Brigade at fires. The result has been satisfactory, and further improvement may be looked for.

12. The conduct of the Brigade throughout the year has been good.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

The Honourable

THE COLONIAL SECRETARY.

F. H. MAY, Superintendent of Fire Brigade.

  SIR,I have the honour to forward herewith a report on the state of the Government Fire Engines for the year ending 31st December, 1897.

STEAMER No. 1.

(Floating Fire Engine by Shand and Mason.)

  This engine is new. It was finished on the 22nd January and commenced work in February. It did good service at the Fire on board the S. S. Belgie, on the 21st April and has been found very suitable for harbour work. The propelling engine is of sufficient power to maintain a speed of 9 miles per hour, so that little time is lost in reaching a fire in any part of the harbour. With the exception of a burst tube which gave out at the finish of the fire on the Belgic, the boiler and machinery has given every satisfaction.

STEAMER No. 2.

(Land Engine by Shand and Mason.)

This engine has been 19 years in service; the original boiler which was worn out was replaced by a new one this year supplied by Shand and Mason. It has been well tested at drill and found satisfac- tory, and is now in good working order.

STEAMER No. 3.

(Land Engine by Shand and Mason.)

This engine has been 19 years in service and is now in good order; the boiler has been regularly cleaned and examined and the machinery tested for efficiency at drill.

F

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH FEBRUARY, 1898. 161

STEAMER No. 4.

(Land Engine by Shand and Mason.)

This engine has been 16 years in service; the pump valve seats have been thoroughly overhauled aud new valves fitted. It has been regularly tested for efficiency at the monthly drills, and is now in good working order.

STEAMER NO. 5.

(Land Engine by Shand and Mason.)

This engine has been 12 years in service; it has been very little used-for fires this year, but has been regularly tested at drill and is now in good working order.

  Seven Manual Engines and fittings are all in good order. The hose, reels, ladders and supply carts are all in good order and condition.

The Honourable

F. H. MAY, C.M.G.,

His Excellency the Governor then addressed the Council as follows:---

GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL,

My principal object in calling a meeting of Council this afternoon was that I might have an opportunity of announcing to you officially a fact with which you are already acquainted privately, that I am leaving this Colony on the 1st of February and that my successor will be Sir Henry Blake. The Secretary of State for the Colonies, to whom I telegraphed a few days ago, is unable to inform me of the exact date upon which my successor will arrive in Hongkong, but I assume that after eight or nine years' hard work in Jamaica he will probably apply for several months' leave of absence. In the meantime, His Ex- cellency Generai Black will administer the affairs of this Government, a duty for which he is eminently qualified. I have to thank you all, Gentlemen, for the kindness and considera- tion which you have extended to me during the past six years and two months--a term of office which, uninterrupted by any leave of absence, I do not think has ever been exceeded by a Governor of any one of Her Majesty's Colonies. To Mr. Chater, the senior unofficial member, my thanks are especially due. From you, Gentlemen, I have received valuable advice, and I think I may fairly say on some occasions even unanimous support. I can assure you that I shall always look back with great pleasure upon our meetings here--and if I should ever recall any serious difference of opinion which may have occurred between the Executive and the Unofficial Members of Council I shall not forget that we one and all, according to our own lights, although we differed, were solely animated by a desire to do what we individually thought was best for the interests of this progressive Colony. Gentlemen, I bid you farewell and may every success attend you in the future, both in your public and private capacities.

Mr. CHATER addressed the Council as follows:-

Your Excellency, we have listened with much interest to the announcement you have just made, which, although not unexpected, when thus officially spoken emphasises its reality. Speaking on my own behalf and, I trust, on behalf of my unofficial colleagues present, I desire to express my sincere appreciation of the able manner in which you have for the past six years presided over this Council, and of the unfailing courtesy and forbearance shown by you to all. During your Excellency's administration many important Ordinances have been added to the Statute Book and many important public works accomplished and others inaugurated. This Council, as well as the Executive Council, has been enlarged, and the Colony thereby afforded more voice in the control of its affairs.

                            Your Excellency arrived in this Colony at a time of deep depression. You will leave it in a condition of renewed prosperity with everything on a sounder basis; and this has come to pass in spite of some adverse conditions, namely, the continued dullness of trade and two outbreaks of plague. Under your auspices most important sanitary legislation has been carried through, greatly to the benefit of public health, though in the face of a good deal of opposition; and the city now is in a far better position to grapple with epidemics than it has ever been before. Naturally, there has been some friction occasionally and our debates at times have been very warm indeed, but your Excellency has held the reins with tact and impartiality, and now in laying them down you have the great satisfaction of knowing that you will leave the Colony better in every respect than you found it.

found it. I feel only too conscious that I am unable to do justice to the occasion, but I trust that my unofficial colleagues, some of whom will no doubt address you themselves, will supplement my feeble attempt at expressing the general appre- ciation of your Excellency's successful and popular administration, which has also been the longest since the founding of this Colony. And now, Sir, in bidding you officially farewell I have only to say that although we may not meet at this table or in this Council Chamber again, yet we shall cherish with deep and lively recollection the urbanity with which you have always presided over our deliberations. In the best sense of the term I am sure we all join in wishing you, Sir, good-bye.

Dr. Ho KAI addressed the Council as follows:--

Sir, I fully concur with the remarks that have fallen from the lips of the Honourable the Senior Unofficial Member. I have been with him in the sentiments he has expressed in regard to your Excellency. For the past six years your Excellency has most successfully presided over this Council and during that long period your consummate tact, your wise discretion, and your unfailing courtesy have promoted good feeling and harmony amongst Honourable Members and increased the usefulness of their deliberations. Whether we agreed or disagreed upon a measure or a subject, whether we engaged in heated discussion or pleasant banter, the decorum and dignity of the Council have always been maintained. During the six years of your administration we have passed many useful measures and have revised and improved a great many old Ordinances, but I venture to say that in no instance has any harassing or embarrassing legislation been passed. So far as the public works of the Colony are concerned, when your Excellency assumed office there were many useful works in progress and in point

179

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 26TH FEBRUARY, 1898.

of completion, but your Excellency has inaugurated many useful works and when they are completed-such as the Peak roads the road leading from Plantation Road to Magazine Gap, the new houses that are to be built in Taipingshan, and other new works which your Excellency has caused to be inaugurated--all these, when completed, I say, will remind the Colony of your energetic and what I might call sanitary government. The financial position of the Colony has steadily improved from year to year under your Excellency's administra- tion, and now I venture to think that the colonial finances are so much improved as to be placed on a sound and healthy basis, pessimistic views to the contrary notwithstanding. Now, Sir, in bidding you farewell to-day I wish to tender you my personal thanks for unvarying kind assistance I have received at your hands as the senior representative of the Chinese community. I have on more than one occasion-in fact, on many occasions-made representations on behalf of the Chinese to your Excellency. You have always received such representations most kindly and subjected them to your kindest consideration.

                                                     You have granted a great number of requests, and the few occasions on which you have found refusal necessary you have carefully explained the reason why the requests could not be granted. I wish to thank you further for the interest you have always taken in Chinese affairs and most especially for the increased representation which you have given to them on this Council. The honourable member whom you have so happily nominated to be the junior member of this Council will represent the Chinese in many ways much better than I, and will render the greatest assistance in looking after and protecting their interests. Now, I am sure that my honourable friend, Mr. WEI A YUK, will join with me in assuring your Excellency that by this act alone you have won the lasting gratitude of the Chinese com- munity of this Colony. Now, Sir, as probably this is the last time you will preside over us in this Council I, as a member of this Council, wish you good-bye and all future happiness and prosperity.

Mr. WEI A YUK addressed the Council as follows: --

 Your Excellency, my honourable friend and honourable colleague has so well and fully expressed my own views and sentiments with regard to your Excellency that he has left me nothing more to add than to express my entire concurrence with his remarks. I join with him in wishing your Excellency health, happiness, and prosperity.

Mr. BELL-IRVING addressed the Council as follows:-

 I have listened with interest and with great pleasure to the remaks made by the senior unofficial member and by the two unofficial members representing the Chinese community, and with all of them I fully concur. The Honourable Dr. Ho Kai has referred to the great consideration which you have shown to all questions affecting the welfare of the Chinese community, and I would like also to mention the support you have always taken in all matters in connection with the commercial progress and prosperity of this Colony during the past six years. During that period you have warmly supported the many new industrial undertakings started in this Colony and in many other ways helped the mercantile commu- nity, who, I consider, have good cause to be most grateful to you.

                              I also desire to wish you long life and every happiness in the future.

Mr. BELILIOs addressed the Council as follows:--

 Your Excellency, the honourable members who have just spoken have actually taken the wind out of my sails and I have very little to add to the remarks which have been made. As the oldest member of the Jewish community in Hongkong I can endorse every word of praise that has been spoken. To be brief, I can only say that by your departure we shall lose a kind friend, a good associate, and an able colleague, and I can only trust that those who succeed you will follow the example you have set in your career, which I am certain will result in the happiness of the inhabitants generally of this Island. With these words, Sir, I wish you farewell and happy meetings with friends in the old country.

His Excellency the Governor again addressed the Council as follows:--

Gentlemen, it only remains for me to reiterate my hearty thanks to you for the kindness you have shown me and for the handsome tribute you have just paid to my administration. It is certainly gratifying to me to know that I leave the Colony in a very good position and that I have given satisfaction not only to the public generally but to the Chinese, who form an important part of the community. I can only claim to have done my duty honestly and without fear, favour, affection, or ill-will, and I am quite sure that my successor will follow in my steps.

By Command,

J. H. STEWART LOCKHARt,

Colonial Secretary.

No. 1.

PUBLIC WORks Office, HONGKONG, 5th January, 1898.

"STORE FOR THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT,"

SIR, The necessity for proper store accommolation for the use of the Public Works Depart- ment, in some fairly central site, has been more than once brought to the attention of Government, but as nothing has been done yet to meet this undoubted want, it seems scarcely necessary to refer to previous files, and I have the honour now to bring the matter to your notice hoping that it may be possible to bring it to a definite issue.

   2. The question was dealt with by the Committee appointed by His Excellency the Governor to report on the condition of Public Offices, from which subject, however, I think it should now be dis- associated as it really stands on a quite different footing.

3. Paragraph 14 of the Report of that Committee describes the present accommodation used by the Department, which I here again enumerate.

The Public Works Department Stores are now located in three separate buildings, viz., Crosby Store, No. 3A Blue Buildings, and at Wanchai Store on Government land reclaimed from the fore- shore, in addition to which a small store is maintained at No. 2 Tank in connection with the work- shop there, and some goods are also stored opposite the Sailors' Home.

4. Crosby Store occupies an area of 4,131 square feet and the old Education Offices (forming part of the same building but now unsafe and occupied) an area of 6,917 square feet, a total of 11,078 square feet of most valuable land in the heart of the City.

These buildings are in such a dilapidated condition as to be positively unsafe, rendering their use as stores very limited, and should they collapse, likely to lead to considerable loss of the property stored there. I estimate that less than one-third of the space is capable of being used.

The site is probably as valuable as any in the City, and I have little doubt would sell now for over $12 a square foot, and thus bring in $133,000, to Government.

5. The store in Blue Buildings is rented by Government from the Land Investment Company at an annual rental of $949.20 including taxes.

6. The store at Wanchai on the Reclamation in front of Marine Lots 117 and 118 Praya East, though very small, is undoubtedly the most conveniently situated store we possess, and on this site I would recommend the erection of a suitable permanent building to contain all our stores, and a small residence for a storekeeper with accommodation for our workshops.

7. The present staff employed in connection with our Store Department are as follows :-

Head Storekeeper,..

Clerk,

Four Store Coolies,..

One Watchman,

Six

Do.,

One Indian Constable,

$60.00 per mensem.

10.00

""

33.00

39

7.00

""

36.00

>>

13.50

$159.50

or $1,914.00 per annum.

With all our stores concentrated in one place I would consider the following staff ample :-

Head Storekeeper (to do clerk's work also),

Two Store Coolies $10 and $7,

Two Watchmen $7,

....

$70.00

17.00

14.00

$101.00

or $1,212.00 per annum.

196 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 26TH FEBRUARY, 1898.

8. The store at Wanchai is in a convenient position as regards our work; it is within a mile of the Office, has water carriage up to the entrance, and on portion of the site the workshops and small connected store now on No. 2 Tank near Taipingshan can be transferred.

9. I have gone over the existing stores and noted the space now occupied, and what our maxi- mum requirements in that respect are likely to be, and have come to the conclusion that a building 110 feet by 35 feet with 2 floors will be suffi ient. There should be also an open shed for non- perishable articles which should, however, be under cover, and a residence for the storekeeper; and I estimate the total cost will not exceed $18,191.00 as per enclosed particulars.

10. The saving to Government by carrying out this proposal would be as follows:-

Annual cost of present staff,

Rent paid for Blue Buildings,

$1,914.00

949.20

$2,863.20

Deduct cost of proposed new staff,

Saving,

which capitalized may be taken to represent about $33,000.00.

1,212.00

$1.651.20

   11. I do not refer to the large sum that is certain to be realizel by the sale of Crosby Store and adjoining premises, as I have in another paper proposed devoting the money so realized to the construc- tion of new Public Offices, nor do I refer to the fact that it was at one time proposed to reserve a most valuable site on the new Reclamation opposite the Sailors' Hone for Public Works Departan nt Stores, as my proposal seems on its own merits to be so evidently a lvantageous and a saving to Government as to warrant its early sanction.

12. In conclusion, I submit for the approval of His Excellency the Governor that I be authorized to lay this proposal before the Public Works Committee, and, if it meets with approval, proceed at once with the work, the necessary funds being provided by a special supplementary vote.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

The Honourable

THE COLONIAL SECRETARY.
