NOTE.-Where in ships already fitted the required cubic contents of boats placed under davits is provided although by a smaller number of boats than the minimum required by this table, such ships shall be regarded as complying with the rules as to boats to be carried under davits.

(c.) Not less than half the number of boats placed under davits shall be boats of sec. A or sec. B of rule 1 of the general rules.

(d.) The remaining boats may also be of such description or may, in the option of the shipowners (or master), conform to see. C or sec. D: provided that not more than two boats shall be of sec. D.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH JANUARY, 1900.

(e.) If the boats placed under davits in accordance with the foregoing table (A) do not furnish sufficient accommodation for all persons on board then additional wood, metal, collap- sible or other boats of approved description (whether placed under davits or otherwise) or approved life-rafts shall be carried, one of these boats may be a steam-launch; but in that case the space occupied by the engines and boiler is not to be included in the estimated cubic capacity of the boat. Subject to the provision contained in paragraph (g) of these rules such additional boats or rafts shall be of at least such carrying capacity that they and the boats required to be placed under davits by table (A) provide together in the aggregate in vessels of 5,000 tons gross and upwards, three- fourths, and in vessels of less than 5,000 tons gross, one-half more than the minimum cubic contents required by column 3 of that table, and for this purpose three cubic feet of air case in the life-raft is to be estimated as ten cubic feet of internal capacity: Provided always that the rafts will accommodate all the persons for which they are to be certified under the rules and also have 3 cubic feet of air case for each person. All such additional boats or rafts shall be placed as con- veniently for being available as the ship's arrangements admit of, having regard to the avoidance of undue incumbrance of the ship's deck, and the safety of the ship for her voyage. (/) When ships are divided into efficient water-tight compart- ments, so that with any two of them in free communication with the sea, the ship will remain afloat in moderate weather, they shall only be required to carry additional boats or life- rafts of one-half of the capacity required by para. (b.) of these rules.

(9.) In addition to the life-saving appliances before mentioned, ships of this class shall carry not less than one approved life- buoy, (rule 11 (?.) or 11 (b.) of general rules), for every boat placed under davits. They shall also carry approved life-belts, (rule 10), or other similar approved articles of equal buoyancy suitable for being worn on the person so that there may be at least one for each person on board the ship: Provided that no ship of this class shall be required to carry more boats or rafts than will furnish sufficient accommodation for all persons on board.

Class II.

Rules for sea-going ships not certified to carry passengers. (a.) Ships of this class shall carry on each side at least so many and such boats of wood or metal placed under davits (of which one on one side shall be a boat of sec. A or sec. B and on the other side shall be a boat of sec. A, or sec. B, or sec. C of rule of the general rules) that the boats on each side of the ship shall be sufficient to accommodate all persons on board. They shall have proper appliances for getting the boats into the water,

(b.) They shall carry approved life-belts as required for ships

of class I.

(e) They shall carry not less than six approved life-buoys,

(rule 11 (a.) or 11 (.), of general rules).

Class 111.

Rules for steam-ships having special licenses as river steamers under sec. 38 of this Ordinance.

(a.) Ships of this class shall, according to their tonnage, carry boats placed under davits as required by the Table for ships in class I.

(.) If the boats placed under davits in accordance with the above requirements do not furnish sufficient accommodation for all persons on board then additional boats or approved life-rafts shall be supplied as for ships of class I. (c) Provided that if (having regard to the avoidance of undue incumbrance of the ship's deck and to the safety of the ship for her voyage) it is not practicable for a ship of this class to carry additional approved boats or approved life-rafts as required for ships of class I, the deficiency so caused may be made up by the supply of an equivalent number of approved buoyant deck seats or other approved buoyant deck fittings to the satisfaction of the Government Marine Surveyor. (7.) At least one approved life buoy [rule 11 (a.) or 11 (b.) of general rules shall also be provided for each boat of wood or metal carried by the ship, but in no case shall less than six approved life-buoys be provided.

General Bules.

(1.)-Boats.

Note. All boats shall be properly constructed and equipped as provided by these rules, and all boats and other life- saving appliances are to be kept ready for use to the satisfaction of the Government Marine Surveyor. Section (A.)-A boat of this section shall be a life-boat properly constructed of wood or metal having, for every ten cubic feet of her capacity computed as in rule 2, at least one and a half cubic feet of strong and serviceable enclosed air-tight compartments, such that water cannot find its way into them. Section (B.)-A boat of this section shall be a life-boat properly constructed of wood or metal having inside and outside buoyancy apparatus together equal in effi- ciency to the buoyancy apparatus provided for a boat of section A. At least one half of the buoy- any apparatus must be attached to the outside of the boat.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 13TH JANUARY, 1900.

Section (C.)-A boat of this section shall be a life-boat properly

constructed of wood or metal having some buoyancy apparatus attached to the inside and/or outside of the boat equal in efficiency to one half the buoyancy apparatus provided for a boat of section A or sec- tion B. At least one half of the buoyancy apparatus must be attached to the outside of the boat. Section (D.)-A boat of this section shall be a properly constructed

boat of wood or metal.

(2.)-Cubic Capacity.

Measure the length and breadth outside and the depth inside mul- tiply them together and by 6; the product is the capacity of the boat in cubic feet. Thus a boat 28 feet long, 8 feet 6 inches broad and 3 feet 6 inches deep will be regarded as having a capacity of 28 × 85 X 35 X 6 = 499·8 or 500 cubic feet. If the oars are pulled in row- locks, the bottom of the rowlock is to be considered the gunwale of the boat for ascertaining her depth.

(3.)-Number of persons for boats of Section A,

The number of persons a boat of section 1 shall be deemed fit to carry shall be the number of cubic feet (ascertained as in rule 2), divided by 10. The number of persons a boat of sections B, C, or D shall be deemed fit to carry shall be the number of cubic feet. (ascertained as in rule 2), divided by 8. The space in the boat shall be sufficient for the seating of the persons carried in it and for the proper use of the oars.

(4.)-Appliances for lowering Boats.

Appliances for getting a boat into the water must fulfil the follow- ing conditions:-Means are to be provided for speedily detaching the boats from the lower blocks of the davit tackles: the boats placed under davits are to be attached to the davit tackles and kept ready for service, the davits are to be strong enough and so spaced that the boats can be swung out with facility; the points of attachment of the boats to the davits are to be sufficiently away from the ends of the boats to ensure their being easily swung clear of the davits; the boats chocks are to be such as can be expeditiously removed; the davits, falls, blocks, eye bolts, rings, and the whole of the tackling are to be of sufficient strength; the boats falls are to be long enough to lower the boat into the water with safety when the vessel is light; the life lines fitted to the davits are to be long enough to reach the water when the vessel is light; and hooks are not to be attached to the lower tackle blocks.

(5.)-Equipments for boats and for life-rafts.

In order to be properly equipped each boat shall be provided as follows:-

(a.) With the full (single banked) complement of oars, and two

spare oars.

(b.) With two plugs for each plug hole attached with lanyards or chains, and one set and a half of thole pins or crutches attached to the boat by sound lanyards.

(c.) With a sea anchor, a baler, a rudder and tiller or yoke and yoke lines, a painter of sufficient length and a boat hook. The rudder and baler to be kept attached to the boat by sufficiently long lanyards and kept ready for use.

(d.) A vessel to be kept filled with fresh water shall be provided

for each boat.

(e.) Life-rafts shall be fully provided with a suitable equipment.

(6.)-Additional Equipments for boats of sections A and B.

In order to be properly equipped each boat of sections A and B, in addition to being provided with all the requisites laid down in rule 5, shall be equipped as follows. (But not more than four boats in any one ship require to have this outfit) :-

(a.) With two hatchets or tomahawks, one to be kept in each end

of the boat and to be attached to the boat by a lanyard. (b.) With a mast or masts and with at least one good sail and

proper gear for each.

(c.) With a line in loops run round the outside of the boat and

securely made fast.

(d.) With an efficient compass.

(f.) With a lantern trimmed with oil in its receiver sufficient to

burn eight hours.

(7.)- Number of Persons for Life-rafts.

The number of persons that any approved life-raft for use at sca shall be deemed to be capable of carrying shall be determined with reference to each separate pattern approved by the Government Marine Surveyor:

Provided always that for every person so carried there shall be at least 3 cubic feet of strong and serviceable enclosed air-tight com- partments such that water cannot find its way into them. Any ap- proved life-raft of other construction may be used provided that it has equivalent buoyancy to that hereinbefore described. Every such approved life-raft shall be marked in such a way as to plainly indi- cate the number of adult persons it can carry.

(8.)-Buoyant Apparatus.

Approved buoyant apparatus shall be decmed sufficient for a num- ber of persons to be ascertained by dividing the number of pounds of iron which it is capable of supporting in fresh water by 32. Such buoyant apparatus shall not require to be inflated before use, shall be of approved construction and marked in such a way as plainly to indicate the number of persons for whom it is sufficient.

HONGKONG OBservatory,

9th January, 1900.

    SIR, I have the honour to submit my annual report for 1899 to His Excellency the Governor. My fifteenth volume of " Observations and Researches" was published last autumn, and the sixteenth volume is now being printed. It contains the usual astronomical, meteorological, and magnetic observations.

    2. Mr. FIGG has analysed his weather-forecasts for the past four years on the system explained in the Annual Report for 1896 § 5, with the following results :-

    The comparison of weather-forecasts with the weather subsequently experienced in 1899 was as follows:

Success 61%, partial success 33 %, partial failure 5 %, 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 :--

94% of the weather forecasts were successful in 1899.

3. The China Coast Meteorological Register was printed every morning at the Observatory, and information regarding storms was telegraphed and exhibited on notice boards as often and as fully as such information could be justified by the weather telegrams received. This happened on 91 days in 1899. The Red Drum was hoisted 2 times, the Black Drum 3 times, the Red South Cone 3 times, the Black South Cone 2 times, the Red North Cone 0 times, the Black North Cone 2 times, the Red Ball 0 times, the Black Ball 2 times. The Gun was not fired in 1899. No printed bulletins were circulated in 1899.

    4. On the 8th April, 1898, the telegraphic reports from Bolinao (Luzon) ceased as the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company's station was removed from there. On the 15th September reports commenced from Malate and Capiz, and on the 22nd from Tuburan. Reports ceased from Tuburan. on the 27th October, from Malate on the 15th November, and from Capiz on the 24th November. On the 22nd May, 1899, telegraphic reports from Malate, Iloilo, and Bacolod, and on the 9th June

152 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD FEBRUARY, 1900.

from Cebu commenced, with instruments supplied at the cost of the Hongkong Government. The observations are made by the staff of the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company.-From Japan tele- graphic reports are received from Tokio, Kochi, Nagasaki and Kagoshima, and since July, 1898, also from Oshima, Naha and Ishigakijima. In fact returns from Naha had been received for some time previous to that date. All these telegrams are almost invariably received too late. From Formosa telegraphic reports were formerly received from the Chinese Government, but irregularly and too late. The Japanese Government improved matters greatly but still the returns were too late till the begin- ning of November, 1899, when the service was accelerated. The stations are Taihoku, Taichu, Tai- nan, Koshun, and Pescadores.

5. Telegraphic connection between the Observatory and Hongkong was interrupted on the 4th May, 1899, from noon to 2 15 p.; from 6.45 a. on the 3rd June, to 12.12 p. on the 4th; on the 5th, from 7.6 p. to Midt; from 2.15 p. on the 10th to 8.40 a. on the 12th ; on the 13th from 7 a. to 8.30 from 7.15 p. on the 13th to 7 a. on the 14th; from 7.5 p. on the 14th to 7 a. on the 15th; on the 15th, from 7.5 p. to 7.40 p.; from 10 p. on the 16th to 7 a. on the 17th; from 7.45 p. on the 17th to 6.50 a. on the 18th; from 7.10 p. on the 20th to 6.50 a. on the 21st; from 7 p. on the 21st to 6.45 a. on the 22nd; from 8 p. on the 22nd August to 7.45 a. on the 23rd; on the 24th, from 6.15 a. to 2.5 p.; from 6.45 a. on the 15th September to 10.57 a. on the 16th; from 5 p. on the 27th December to 5 p. on the 28th. Interruptions occurred therefore on 22 days, and, of course, also during thunder- storms. There was no telephonic interruption between the Peak and the Observatory during the year except during thunderstorms.

6. During 1899 in addition to meteorological registers kept at 40 stations on shore, 2195 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 261. The total number of days' observations (counting separately those made on board different ships on the same day) was 19455.

     9. As stated in the "Instructions for making Meteorological Observations, etc.," meteorological observations forwarded by observers who regularly send their registers to the Observatory are verified here free of cost. During the past year 3 barometers were verified. In addition, several hundred barometers and aneroids on board ship were compared with our standard.

     10. The mean values of the spectroscopic rainband (1-5) in 1899 were as follows :--January 1.58, February 1.93, March 1.80, April 2.40, May 2.23, June 2.77, July 2.74, August 2.36, September 2.03, October 1.32, November 1.40, December 1.68. Year 2.02.

       11. In 1899 the number of transits observed was 4890. The axis of the transit instrument was levelled 245 times, and the azimuth and collimation were determined 38 times by aid of the meridian mark erected in 1884. All these observations have been reduced by Mr. J. I. PLUMMER.

     12. The sidereal standard clock has been practically untouched throughout the whole year. On August 15 the platinum points of the contact springs were cleaned, but this was done without inter-

fering with the going of the clock or the adjustment of the springs themselves. Subsequently a shunt was introduced into the circuit which works the relay in order to prevent any spark occurring at these points. The standard mean time clock has likewise been going without interruption, a little additional oil being added to parts of the movement on November 16. The rate of this clock at the present time is not satisfactory. The time-ball clock was cleaned on February 25.

    13. The errors of the time-ball are given in Table II. There were seven failures in 1899. The ball is not dropped on Government holidays. Upon March 14th it was under repair, and upon October 21st the Chinese assistant omitted to take the key of the time-ball tower with him. It was dropped successfully 340 times. The causes of the failures mentioned above are as under:-On February 28th a particle from the buff used in cleaning the platinum points on February 25 pre- vented actual contact and there was therefore no discharge current, on March 13th, the piston jambed between the tooth and the back of the cylinder, on June 22nd a corroded wire in the coil of the dis- charge circuit, on June 24th during the repairs attempts were made to drop the ball by means of hand apparatus but failed, on September 4th the piston would not rest on the tooth owing to the spring at the back of the lock having become slack, on September 5th the lock did not discharge owing to the fault on the previous day having been over-corrected, on December 17th no discharge current, proba- bly the clock had not been put in circuit. The probable error was in January± 0.09, in February +0.22, in March ± 0.09, in April± 0.13, in May ± 0.13, in June ± 0.27, in July ± 0.10, in August 0.16, in September ± 0.09, in October ± 0.11, in November± 0.09 and in December

±0.10.

14. Mr. J. I. PLUMMER determined the time and took charge of clocks, chronometers, chrono- graph and the time-ball. Mr. F. G. FIGG issued weather-forecasts and storm-warnings, and made magnetic observations. Miss DOBERCK, who was on leave during five months, attended to marine meteorology. The native assistant, under close supervision of Mr. FIGG and myself, attended to the meteorological instruments and the construction of meteorological tables, assisted by the native staff of computers and telegraphists.

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

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD FEBRUARY, 1900.

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

155

  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.

  Table 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 thermo- meter by comparisons of thermometers hung beside them. 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.

  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 entered only when the rain is seen to fall; when no rain is seen to fall cumulo-nimbus (cum-nim) is entered. This name indicates clouds intermediate between cum and nim. Cumulo-stratus (cum-str) is the well-known thunder cloud, while strato-cumulus (str-cum) signifies a cloud intermediate between stratus and cum. Sin-cum means alto-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 formule, 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 1899 is arranged as follows:--

  Table III. exhibits the mean values for the year (or hourly excess above this) obtained from the monthly reports.

The total duration of rain was 606 hours. There fell at least 0.01 inch of rain on

121 days.

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

  Table V. 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 equidistant from two directions given, are counted half to one of these and half to the other, eg, half of the days when the wind was NNE are counted as N, and the other half as NE.

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

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

Table VIII. is arranged as last year.

Table IX. exhibits the monthly and annual extremes.

Table X. contains five-day means.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD FEBRUARY, 1900.

Appendix A.

Magnetic Observations made during the year 1899, and Comparison of Magnetometers.

 The observations of declination and horizontal force published in Tables XI and XII were made with inagnet No. 55 on Kew pattern unifilar magnetometer Elliott Brothers No. 55 and with magnets 83 and 83A on magnetometer No. 83. The dips were observed with dip-circle Dover No.

71.

 The times of vibration are each derived from 12 observations of the time occupied by the magnet in making 100 vibrations, corrections having been applied for rate of chronometer and arc of vibration. The value of log 'K for 25° Cent. (determined in 1898) was for No. 55 3.44901±0.00009, for No. 83 3.44851±0.00009, and for No. 83a 3.46870±0.00004. The induction-coefficient is for No. 55 5.189±0.055, for No. 83 5.151 ±0.084, and for No. 83a 6.160±0.084. The temperature-coefficients of the magnetic moments are as follows:-

No. 55 :+0.000260t + 0.00000244t2 (Hongkong 1886)

No. 83 : +0.000283t + 0.00000102?2 (Kew 1897)

No. 83A: +0.000384t+0.00000166t (Kew 1897)

 The mean value of the magnetic moments were for No. 55 581.51, for No. 83 762.06, and for No. 83A 676.34.

 The horizontal forces in Table XIII observed with No. 83 have been corrected by the subtraction of .00064, and those with No. 83A by subtraction of .00037 in order to reduce them to No. 55. The uncorrected means of observed values of horizontal force were for No. 55 0.36676, for No. 83 0.36740, and for No. 83A 0.36713.

 All forces are expressed in C.G.S. units. The vertical (Y) and total forces exhibited in Table XIII have been obtained from the observed dips. The mean values of the dip obtained with needle No. 3 was 31°29′.08, with No. 4 31°29′.55, with No. 7 31°28′.63, and with No. 8 31°30'.19. No corrections have been applied to the dips observed with the different needles.

do

 In September the horizontal force was determined with Collimator magnet 55 used in magneto- meters 55 and 83 alternately. The result obtained in the latter exceeded the value obtained in the former by 0.00040, which agrees with the value by which the mean of the two horizontal forces obtained by the magnets 83 and 83A in magnetometer 83 exceed that obtained with 55 (0.00052 in 1898 and 0.00051 in 1899). The values of m x obtained from vibrations agree. The values of not agree. The cause lies with the deflection bars. The bar belonging to 55 is certified to be correct throughout. The apparent distance from centre of instrument of graduation on bar belonging to 83 marked 30 cms is 29.990, and that marked 40 cms is 39.990 according to the certificate, and those corrections have been applied here. But when the two deflection bars are placed beside each other it is seen by the naked eye that these corrections are wrong. It is presumed that the bar belonging to 55 is right. It may be suspected that all the disagreements that are found between the results obtained with different magnetometers are caused by defective determination of the constants of the instruments.

Chart 2111.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 3RD FEBRUARY, 1900.

From U.S. Flagship "Brooklyn."

Beginning at the southern entrance :

1. Narvaez Bank buoy is missing.

2. Southern buoy on Lipata Bank is missing.

3. Northern buoy on Lipata Bank is missing.

CEBU HARBOUR.

4. Eastern buoy on Lipata Bank has been shifted 1 cable to westward of position indicated on chart.

5. Point Lanis buoy has been shifted 1 cable to the northward and eastward of position on chart.

6. The midway buoy on Maktan Island reef is 1 cable south of its chartered position.

7. Kanit Castle buoy is missing.

167

    8. W. S. W. from Kanit Castle and at a distance of 200 yards, there is an island not charted, 20 feet above mean low water, triangular in shape, apex towards and abreast Kanit Castle. The island is 500 yards long, general trend S. S. E. to N. N. W., and 300 yards wide.

9. Buoy off Fort Cebu is missing.

10. Buoy on Maktan shoal, east of Fort Cebu is missing.

11. Buoy on Bamban Mayor shoal is missing.

12. A shoal exists off Mondani, dangerous for small vessels bound for that place, bearing S. by W. W. (mag.) from Mondani Church, distant three cables. At low water 2 feet were found on the shoal.

13. Buoy off Maktan shoal, south of Mondani Tower, is missing.

    14. A shoal was found, bearing E. by S. 7 S. (mag.) from Mondani Tower, distant 2 cables, having 2 feet at low water. The banks of the shoal are steep, depth of water increasing to 3 fathoms in a distance of 12 feet, normal to the channel. The shoal extends some distance beyond a line connecting the buoys placed to eastward and westward of Mondani point. It is safer in passing out of the Northern channel, to hold the Maktan shore, a line from White Tower, open to buoy east of Mondani Tower, lying in deep water.

    15. Buoy on Maktan Island off Post House has been shifted 7 cables east of its charted position and now lies on the edge of Maktan Island shoal, bearing W. S. (mag.) from Vantay Point Light, distant 5 cables.

    16. Buoy marking western entrance of bay or Cebu shore has been shifted 1 cable's length SSE. from its charted position.

17. Buoy south of Bagakai Pt. has been shifted 34 cables south of its charted position.

18. Light on Vantay Pt., Maktan, burns regularly.

19. Light on Bagakai Pt., Cebu, burns regularly.

20. Light on Fort Cebu is incorrectly indicated on the chart, it is placed on the SE. salient of the fort. The light is very inferior.

Charts 2578, 943, 2391.

    There is an uncharted shoal about 3 miles cast of the southern end of Malopascua Island, the position of which was determined by sextant angles and plates on Admiralty Chart No. 2577, as follows:-

Chocolate Island bore W. § S. (mag.) distant 7 miles.

Malopascua Island (southern end) bore W. & N. (mag.) distant 3 miles.

Gato Island bore N. W. § W. (mag.) distant 11.5 miles.

    The shoal was partly developed, extending north and south for about 5 cables, east and west 3 cables, the northern end having least water, 54 fathoms being found, bottom hard sand strewn with lumps of coral. Deep water surrounds the shoal, 75 fathoms having been obtained between it and Malopascua Island. The shoal lies about 13 miles to eastward of the course for steamers bound for Cebu, laid down on Admiralty Chart No. 2577.

LINGAYEN GULF.

There is a reef situated two miles further south of San Fernando Point, in Lingayen Gulf, than is indicated on Admiralty Chart No. 2454.

KATANDUANES.

  Pt. Sialat has several rocks off it, extending to the westward about mile. Agajo Pt. has a long spit extending from it to the southward about one mile. The bottom in front of Kalolbong shelves from 50 fathoms about 2 miles from shore, to 11 fathoms about mile from shore, where there is an anchorage protected from W. by S. through north to E. S. E.

PORT LAMPON.

Port Lampon is a good anchorage with protection from every direction except S. E. protection from all winds, as they can go well inside.

Jomalig Island is not in the position shewn on the chart and could not be seen from there.

PORT OF MARIKABAN.

Small vessels can find good.

     The Port of Marikaban at the northwest corner of the Island has one entrance to the northward and one to the eastward. The water is very deep and vessels tie up to the beach. The turn to go out of the castern entrance is very sharp. This is not a good port for a vessel of any size. There are said to be two shoals off the entrance, one (shewn on the chart) to the eastward, and one off Sombrero Island to the westward. The port is entered heading S. by W. straight for

the middle.

CURRENT OFF CAPE BOJEADOR,

Off Cape Bojeador with a very fresh northeast monsoon blowing there is a current of about 1.5 knots to northward. Off Badog and Salomague Islands and Point Dile there is a 1·5 knot current at each setting N.E.

SAN MIGUEL BAY.

    A reef extends 1 mile west from Siruma Island. Outside of this is a rock (not shown on the chart) just above water and about 1 miles from shore.

COTTABATO.

  Good anchorage in from 3 to 5 fathoms may be had to the northward of the northern mouth of the Rio Grande, with Mt. Cabalata and Colina de Tumaco in range (S. 19° W. mag.) and the southern end of Bongo Island (N. 83° 30′ W. mag.). The above anchorage is on a bank and should be approached carefully as the water shoals suddenly from over twenty fathoms to five fathoms. The chart of this locality is incorrect, the above range when plotted on the chart, shewing the ship's position apparently well inland.

Near the mouth of the river and oftentimes well out at sea, are found numerous small floating islands, composed of grass and debris of all kinds, and logs often of considerable size are frequently seen in this locality.

POLLOCK HARBOUR.

There

  Pollock Harbour is an excellent harbour, well sheltered, with an easy entrance, but with great depth of water. are two iron buoys anchored off the mole, the inshore one in 12 fathoms, the offshore one in 17 fathoms. The rings of these buoys are too light, and too badly rusted, and their moorings too uncertain to enable them to be used as mooring buoys. Vessels may pass between them and get good anchorage in 15 fathoms to the southward and westward of a line between these buoys at sufficient distance to swing clear. There is a framework for a light, at the edge of the reef off the mole, but the use of the light has been discontinued.

DAVAO.

Davao, the town, situated a short distance up the river is small and of but little importance. Off the mouth of the river close in shore, no bottom could be obtained at 20 fathoms. Good anchorage in from 17 to 19 fathoms can be found a little more to the westward on the following bearings, Light tripod N. 4° 30′ E. mag.; left tangent Dunalag Island S. 51° 30′ W. mag.; right tangent Talient Island S. 28° 30′ E. mag. The light has been discontinued.

MATI.

Mati, at the head of Pujada Bay, is small and unimportant. The water is very deep, making it necessary to stand close in shore for an anchorage. Anchorage in 15 fathoms was found with the end of the wharf bearing N. 26° W. mag.; and Maboa Point S. 63° E. mag.

The Spanish charts were found to be in places quite incorrect. Latitudes seem to be fairly accurate but longitudes are sometimes several miles out. The western coast of the S.E. peninsular from the Rio Grande to Tuna Bay seems to be charted several miles too far to the westward. The passage between Sarangani Islands, and the mainland of Mindanao presented no difficulties, though made first at night. The coast line of the Gulf of Davao scems to be fairly correct.

A BILL

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to further amend The Public

Health Ordinance, 1887.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited as The Public Health Amendment Ordinance, 1900.

Proceedings 2. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 19 of The without pre- Public Health Ordinance, 1887, (No. 24 of 1887), it shall be lawful for the Sanitary Board, in its discretion, to in- stitute summary proceedings before a Magistrate against any person contravening any Bye-law duly made under section 13 of such Ordinance, without previously issuing a notice to the offender stating what is required to be done to carry out the provisions of such Bye-law, and upon conviction for a contravention of any such Bye-law the Magistrate may impose a penalty not exceeding twenty- five dollars.

Repeal of section 84 of

Ordinance No. 24 of 1887. Sub- stituted sec- tion as to recovery of penalties.

3. Section 84 of Ordinance No. 24 of 1887 is hereby repealed and in lieu thereof the following section is sub- stituted :-

84. All penalties imposed by this Ordinance or by any Bye-laws thereunder may be recovered in a sum- mary manner before a Magistrate at the suit of the secretary or of such other person as the Sanitary Board may depute.

Clause 3 is intended to prevent technical objections in cases where it is more convenient that the proceedings before a Magistrate should be at the suit of some persou other than the Secretary who, in practice, rarely if ever attends at the Magistracy.

Attorney General.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. 17TH FEBRUARY, 1900. 209

A BILL

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to authorize the imposition of fees for the issue by the Government of Hongkong of certain certificates to certain Chinese.

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

1. This Ordinance may be cited for all purposes as the Short title. Chinese Certificates (American Possessions) Fees Ordinance,

1900.

2. For each certificate issued by the Government of this Fee for Colony to Chinese officials, teachers, students, merchants, certificates. or travellers for curiosity or pleasure, who are desirous of proceeding to any port not in the United States of America but which is in the actual possession of the Government of the said United States, there shall be paid to the Registrar General a fee of twenty-five dollars, which he shall pay into the Treasury.

3. The Chinese Manila Fees Ordinance, 1898, (No. 28 Repeal of of 1898) is hereby repealed.

Objects and Reasons.

The object of this Bill is to authorize the imposition of fees for certificates granted to Chinese desirous of proceeding not only to Manila but to Hawaii or to any other ports outside of the United States of America although in the actual possession of the United States Government.

Ordinance No. 13 of 1898, already deals with fees for certificates for Chinese going to the United States, and it is thought that the simplest course is to repeal Ordinance 28 of 1898, which deals only with fees for certificates for Chinese going to Manila, and to practically re-enact that Ordinance in wider terms.

The following Protest by the Honourable T. H. WHITEHEAD against "The Summoning of Chinese Ordinance" (No. 40 of 1899), and the Colonial Secretary's Memorandum thereon, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 15th instant, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 16th February, 1900.

F. H. MAY, Acting Colonial Secretary.

SIR,

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL CHAMBER,

HONGKONG, 11th January, 1900.

I was unavoidably absent from the meetings of the Legislative Council on 21st and on 28th ultimo at which the Bill entitled "An Ordinance to provide for the summoning of Chinese before the Registrar General," No. 40 of 1899, (copy of which is sent herewith), was read a second and third time and passed. If I had been present I would have voted against the second as well as the third reading of the Bill, divided the Council on the question and if over-ruled, as I probably would have been, I should have lodged a formal protest against the decision of the Coun- cil, laid on the table a statement of reasons in support of my Protest (under Rule 32 of The Standing Rules and Orders of the Council), and required the Govern- ment to forward that Protest for your consideration.

2. On learning that the Bill had been passed I wrote to His Excellency the Governor asking him not to put the Ordinance in force until your approval had been obtained, and I protested against the Ordinance as unconstitutional; but His Excellency refused to accede to my request, and the Ordinance is now in operation. I enclose copy of my notes dated 28th and 29th ultimo, and of His Excellency's replies.

3. Under the circumstances I deem it my duty to now give you a statement of my reasons for dissenting and my views on the subject of this Ordinance.

4. Sub-section (i.) of section 2 empowers the Governor at any time to direct. the Registrar General to enquire into and report as to any matter which is con- nected with the New Territories, as defined by section 2 of Ordinance No. 12 of 1899, if such matter exclusively concerns persons of Chinese race whether British subjects or otherwise. Section 2 of Ordinance 12 of 1899 reads:-

{

"The expression new territories' as used in this Ordinance shall mean the "additional territories acquired by this Colony under the provisions of a

.6

(:

Convention, dated the 9th day of June, 1898, between Her Majesty

Queen VICTORIA and His Imperial Majesty the Emperor of China for "the enlargement of the limits of this Colony."

5. Sub-section (ii) of section 2 gives the Registrar General unlimited power to summon before him any Chinese (whether a British subject or otherwise) who appears to him to be able to give information regarding any matter connected with the New Territories on which the Governor thinks fit to direct an enquiry, civil or criminal.

The Right Honourable JOSEPH CHAMBERLAIN, M.P.,

Secretary of State for the Colonies.

214

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1900.

 6. Section 3 requires every Chinese so summoned to answer all questions which the Registrar General may ask him, and to produce to the Registrar Gene- ral, or to some person deputed by him, any books, documents, or other written matter; it permits the inspection of any property, and it gives powers similar to those vested in the Supreme Court of this Colony in regard to administering oaths to witnesses and examining witnesses on oath. Any person wilfully giving false evidence on oath before the Registrar General shall be liable upon summary con- viction before a Magistrate to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months with or without hard labour, or to the payment of a fine not exceeding $200 (Two hundred Dollars) which may be recovered by distress.

 7. Sub-section (i.) of section 4 empowers the Registrar General to issue his Warrant for the arrest of any person omitting to attend when summoned, such Warrant to be executed by a Police Officer or Constable in the same manner as if it had been issued by a Magistrate. Every person so arrested shall be liable upon summary conviction before a Magistrate to the payment of a fine not exceeding $10 (Ten Dollars), &c.

8. Sub-section (ii.) of section 4 gives power to a Magistrate, on the applica- tion of the Registrar General, to order that the rents and profits of the Property, of any person absconding or concealing himself so that a Warrant against him can- not be executed, shall be attached until such time as such person shall appear before the Registrar General in obedience to such Warrant. All or any of the rents and profits so attached may, if a Magistrate in his discretion shall so order, be forfeited to the Crown, &c.

9. The object in view in passing this Ordinance and the reasons which have appeared to His Excellency the Governor to justify the conferring of such very extraordinary and highly unconstitutional powers on the Registrar General are fully set forth in the speech of His Excellency in the Legislative Council when the Bill was before the Council on its second reading. I enclose a copy of said speech from the local Hansard, a publication which has the advantage of having its reports of speeches in the Council corrected by the speakers. According to His Excellency's statement the sole object of the Ordinance is to enable the Chinese residents in the New Territories to be compelled, under penalties, to give all particulars about their holdings and titles, some reluctance having been shown by the inhabitants in registering their lands and attending when summoned by the Registrar General to receive his explanations on the subject. The inhabitants of the New Territories have been slow to come in and register their lands. The cause of this slowness is supposed to be due to their ignorance and their suspicions as to the possible dangers to themselves if they register. The Government is naturally desirous of enlightening their ignorance, dissipating their suspicions, and have invited the men to come into Hongkong and have their difficulties explained away. May I point out that the Government when inviting these poor people (and they are mostly all of the very poorest of the agricultural class) to come into Hongkong has never offered to pay either the cost of their passage to and fro, nor the expenses of their detention in Hongkong, nor any compensation for any loss of their time? Many of these men would have a journey of ten or fifteen or twenty, or even more, miles over hills or by sea. It has not been made clear that the Government has done everything that was reasonably possible to do to enlighten the men by proclamations posted in their respective villages or by the publication or distribution of leaflets. These people are amongst the most ignorant of the population around Hongkong, and it is not unnatural that they should have held aloof and refused to travel into Hongkong at their own expense. There is no allegation that the inhabitants have, when asked for information which the Government had a right to have, refused to give that information. It would appear they have only refused to come into Hongkong to have the situation

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1900. 215

explained to them, and that, I submit, may be due to the expense entailed in travelling to Hongkong. I would, therefore, ask your special attention to the particular evil the Ordinance is intended to correct, and to the character of the remedy to be applied to it.

10. The main object of the Ordinance is to enforce on the Chinese in the Colony's New Territories the registration of their lands and the disclosure of their title deeds. It is, no doubt, intended to operate in conjunction with the survey of the New Territories now being made, and with the special "Land Court" now in course of constitution for the settlement of all claims in connection with land in the New Territories. A Bill entitled "The New Territories Land Court Ordinance was read a second time on 30th November, 1899.

11. This Ordinance places in the hands of the Government an inquisitorial power far exceeding that possessed by any tribunal or by any judge. It infringes in every possible direction on the recognised rights and liberties of the subject. It exposes a man to the most serious consequences, civil and criminal. It enables an interrogatory to be pushed into inatters hitherto beyond the reach of all investigation by the law; it may compel a man to criminate himself or to disclose his title. The power is without any limitation, and there is no limitation whatever as to the subject matter of the enquiry. It is not confined to matters of general interest or of public policy with reference to which ordinarily a Government seeks to obtain information by means of a Commission. If this were the sole purpose there is an Ordinance in force (No. 2 of 1889) which gives a Commission power to take evidence on oath and to punish falsehood. It is not confined to civil matters exclusively; it may therefore be used at the instigation of the Captain Superintendent of Police to enable him to conduct, through the Registrar General, a secret enquiry into a man's conduct with a view to a criminal prosecution. A man may, under the operation of this Ordinance, be compelled to criminate himself and to answer questions which the highest Criminal Court in the Empire has not the power to put and would not allow the Attorney General to put. A man may, when before the Registrar General under this Ordinance, be compelled, contrary to the very first principles of the administration of Civil Justice, to disclose his title deeds and all the defects in his title to his lands, all his books, letters and accounts and papers, and that to a possible opponent and in anticipation of litigation. Such secret enquiries are conducive to excite against the Government in the highest degree the suspicions and distrust of the Chinese who in their business affairs are constitutionally secretive. The widest powers of Discovery entrusted to the highest Court in the Realm do not extend so far. No man is compelled to disclose his affairs except in a suit properly instituted, under the protection of clearly defined laws, under the supervision of trained Judges and only in so far as such discovery can legitimately aid his opponent's case.

                                   No man is compellable to disclose his own case. The unlimited powers given by this Ordinance may be used in aid of a civil suit to which the Government is a party. The person examined has no right to legal assistance or advice and has no power of appeal to any Court for the ordinary protection afforded by the law and by every Court to persons under examination. The power is without any limitation and it is placed in the hands of a person who may be wholly unfit to exercise it. If given to one of the Judges it would be objectionable. The power is given to an official who may be, and who often is, without the knowledge or training necessary for the judicious exercise of such power. Comparatively junior members of the Civil Service not unfrequently find themselves in the position of Acting Registrar. The Registrar General's Department with the mass of Chinese influence around it is the least qualified of any Public Department to exercise such a power. It can never be impartial. The authority to enquire is given secretly. There is no publication in The Gazette as in the case of a Commission. It need not be with

216 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1900.

reference to a matter of public or general interest. It may be some matter solely affecting individuals and individual interests. The alleged reasons for this Ordinance The Ordinance confers being passed are inadequate to explain or justify it. powers which no Court possesses; it gives unlimited powers to be exercised by an untrained man who may be a very junior officer, in secret and without appeal, and such officer may be, and almost necessarily must be, largely in the hands of the Chinese in his department. It invests him with summary power to inflict. serious punishment. It is so extensive and unlimited in its powers, so unguarded in the exercise of these powers that it is capable of the gravest abuses.

   12. It may be well to here recall that the Registrar General's Department was formerly entrusted with somewhat similar powers in connection with Brothels and so abused those powers that after enquiry they were taken away by Ordinance No. 2 of 1876.

   13. The following remarks made by the Senior Representative of the Chinese, the Hon. Dr. Ho KAI, in Council on 25th March, 1891, are not wholly pertinent to the present subject but they contain so much that elucidates what I have herein- before said that I quote them :-

"It is very easy to get Chinese to come to one's office, especially the

(6

(6

Registrar General's Office, and get them to say what one wants, "for on asking them certain questions, they, observing the same "deference that they pay to officials of their own nation, will simply say 'aye, aye,' to every question addressed to them, although at the same time they do not agree with the opinion expressed. It is a "matter of notoriety that they will not contradict official remarks. "As I am here to represent the Chinese, the Government has "nominated me, and I hope I represent them, I must say I wish "when the Registrar General wishes information he would get it in "a fair and just manner, allow the Chinese to come together in open "meeting and then give the result arrived at, instead of taking opinions given under, I will not say the terror, but the peculiar feeling with which they come before a high official."

66

So far these statements have not been controverted.

14. There is no provision in the Ordinance for payment to the person summoned of his expenses in coming to Hongkong, of his stay in Hongkong, of his return-no compensation for his loss of time. Surely, if the Government has any legitimate enquiries to make it should carry out those enquiries on the spot in the village to which they refer. At home it may be difficult to realise how important this is to a Chinese peasant.

It creates a

"Star

The Ordinance imposes heavy penalties on any Chinese (whether a British subject or otherwise) not attending on receipt of the summons or refusing to answer or produce documents, or giving false answers to any ques- tions asked. I submit that this Ordinance is not only unconstitutional and unne- cessary but it is impolitic and calculated to create disaffection. The Government has adequate powers of enquiry without it. If for any purpose further powers are required they should be strictly limited in their scope in accordance with law and be safeguarded in their exercise in every way. The party to be examined should have the protection afforded by a power to appeal to some properly constituted tribunal. The proceedings should be public and not secret. This is desirable, if not necessary, in view of the alleged land jobbery in the Colony's New Territories

DEAR SIR HENRY BLAKE,

I returned this morning from my short holiday a day sooner than the leave applied for and granted owing to pressure of business, which latter prevents my attending the Council meeting this afternoon.

I understand the Ordinance to provide for the summoning of Chinese before the Registrar General will be read a third time to-day. This is, I submit, a most important measure and imparts larger powers to the Registrar General than any possessed by the Supreme Court. It is, in my opinion, Class legislation and thoroughly unconstitutional. The Bill is being hurried through the Council with undue and unnecessary haste, and I earnestly appeal to Your Excellency to postpone the third reading for a week to give time for further consideration.

Were I able to be present at the meeting I would further move that a suspending clause be added whereby the Secretary of State's sanction would be required before the Ordinance could become law. In haste.

Yours very truly,

His Excellency

Sir HENRY A. BLAKE, G.C.M.G.,

DEAR MR. WHITEHEAD,

GOVERNMENT HOUSE. HONGKONG, 28th December, 1899.

I have this moment received your letter on my return from Legislative Council where the Ordinance mentioned by you and which I consider to be neces- sary and advisable was read a third time. I am sorry to hear that your holiday

was curtailed.

The Hon. T. H. WHITEHEAD, M.L.C.

Very truly yours,

HONGKONG, 29th December, 1899.

DEAR SIR HENRY BLAKE,

My letter of yesterday in re the Ordinance to provide for the summoning of Chinese before the Registrar General was sent to the Council Chamber. By some mistake it was not delivered to Your Excellency there but forwarded from there to Government House.

I see the Ordinance has been read a third time and passed. May I beg you not to bring it into force immediately as I propose to address the Secretary of State and protest against the Bill as unconstitutional and as a mischievous piece of Class legislation. In this protest I shall ask the Chinese Members of Council to join. Yours very truly,

Sir HENRY A. BLAKE, G.C.M.G.,

DEAR MR. WHITEHEAD,

GOVERNMENT HOUSE, HONGKONG, 30th December, 1899.

I wrote to you immediately on receipt of your letter saying that the Ordinance, which I considered expedient and advisable, had been read a third time. I have reason to believe that the Chinese Members of Council were satisfied with the

220 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 17TH FEBRUARY, 1900.

Ordinance with the addition of the duration clause suggested by Dr. Ho KAI. Having satisfied myself as to the necessity for the Ordinance I regret that I cannot accept your suggestion that I should refuse my assent to an Ordinance passed unanimously by the Legislative Council.

The Honourable

T. H. WHITEHEAD.

Very truly yours,

(Speech by His Excellency the Governor on 21st December, 1899.)

I think the observations of the Honourable Members who have just spoken. are very much to the point, and I think it is only right that not alone the Council but that the Chinese people in the New Territory should have some idea why this Bill is introduced by the Government at the present time. The condition of the New Territory is peculiar. The Chinese do not understand our ways, and we desire-I desire most heartily-to interfere with the Chinese and their customs as little as possible, but it is absolutely necessary that the land in the New Territory should be registered. Of co rse, all Members of the Council know that in the in- terests of the Chinese themselves it should be registered; but for some reason, probably some suspicion which I hope will be removed in the course of time, the Chinese have not been for some time as anxious to register their land as they might be, and for a considerable time we have found great difficulty in getting the Chinese to come forward and give any information about their land or about re- gistration. It then became necessary to approach the Chinese through their elders, their leaders, for the purpose of explaining why it was necessary that land should be registered. However, on more than one occasion when these Chinese elders had been invited to come in they gave no attention whatever to the invita- tion. Such conduct under Chinese jurisdiction--refusing when invited by a high official to come in and assist him and give him information-would not have been tolerated for an instant. would have been taken had the people remained under Chinese jurisdiction, but we do wish to get the power to compel their attendance and to inflict a small fine in case they disobey the summons. As to the observations of the Honourable Gentleman with reference to the supervision, so to speak, of the exercise of this power, the Honourable Member will see from the second claus
