Recent researches have shown that, at least in the vast majority of cases, probably in all cases, the organism is introduced into the blood, and thus the disease contracted, by the bite of a mosquito, generally, if not always, one species or other of the genus known as anopheles. The anopheles bites a malarious person, ie., a person whose blood contains the organism, and sucks up with the blood the organism. This organism develops and increases in the body of the anopheles, and there pro- duces germs which pass into the salivary glands and proboscis of the insect. Hence when the mosquito bites another person, it introduces the organism into the blood of that person and so starts the disease.

Every individual anopheles is not necessarily infected with the organism, but in a district where malaria occurs the probability is very great of any anopheles being so infected.

     Hence malaria, in the vast majority of cases, probably all cases, may be prevented, by preventing oneself from being bitten by an infected anopheles.

Prevention may be secured-

1. By avoiding all bites of mosquitos.

A. By living in rooms to which the entrance of mosquitos is completely shut off by thin

meshed gauzes to windows, doors, &c.

B. By sleeping under adequate mosquito curtains-the anopheles generally bites in the

night or evening.

2. By avoiding sleeping or living near native huts in regions favourable for malaria. Although the natives become acclimatised to the disease as they grow up, and the adults do not suffer from malaria, the organism is very frequent in the blood of native children, and anopheles in or near native huts are very commonly infected. Hence anyone who sleeps in or even near native quarters runs the risk of being bitten by an infected anopheles and of catching malariar

3. By preventing malarious persons from being bitten by mosquitos. A non-infected anopheles is harmless; it is only when it has fed on blood of a malarious person that it can propagate malaria.

     The above are the most important means of prevention, but much may be done by diminishing the number of anopheles. These very frequently breed in small pools, and puddles of water on the ground-puddles mostly of a fairly perinanent description, kept filled by the rain and not liable to scouring out during heavy showers. Hence, if these pools are filled up or otherwise abolished, the number of anopheles may be largely diminished, and the chance of infection correspondingly lessened.

The increase of anopheles is also diminished by pouring kerosene, &c., on their breeding pools. These measures should not be neglected, but the most important steps are:-

bites.

1. To avoid sleeping or living near native huts or other haunts of malaria-infected anopheles. 2. To avoid being bitten by infected mosquitos, which is best effected by avoiding all mosquito

No. 27.

Minutes of the proceedings of the SANITARY BOARD, at a regular meeting held on Thursday, the 20th day of December, 1900.

PRESENT:

The Director of Public Works, (The Honourable ROBERT DALY ORMSBY), President.

The Medical Officer of Health, (Dr. FRANCIS WILLIAM CLARK).

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer, (Dr. JOHN BELL).

EDWARD ÚSBORNE, Esquire.

CH'AN A-FOOK, Esquire.

Dr. WILLIAM HARTIGAN.

JAMES MCKIE, Esquire.

Major HARRY HERBERT BROWN, R.A.M.C.

ABSENT:

The Captain Superintendent of Police, (The Honourable FRANCIS HENRY MAY, C.M.G.), Vice-President. The Registrar General, (The Honourable JAMES Haldane STEWART LOCKHART, C.M.G.).

FUNG WA CHÜN, Esquire.

Minutes. The minutes of regular meeting No. 26 held on the 6th day of December, 1900, were confirmed.

Street Watering.-A reply from the Honourable Colonial Secretary requesting a full statement of the reasons why the Sanitary Board are of opinion that the present system should be altered and the streets watered by means of carts, and enquiring why the views of the Medical Officer of Health in his minute of the 16th October last in C.S.O, No. 217 of 1900 have not found acceptance among the other members of the Board, was considered.

Mr. EDWARD OSBORNE pointed ont that the dust of the streets was a well known medium for spreading disease, that the Board desired to introduce a more efficient method of street watering than the "bucket" system at present in vogue, and moved-

That a reply be sent that the Board disapproves of the present method of watering the lower levels and considers

that watering by carts should be substituted at once..

Dr. WM. HARTIGAN said there was some misunderstanding about this question as he certainly did not understand the Medical Officer of Health to object to the proposed scheme per se, but simply to say that the improved scheme would entail additional expense.

The present system was sloppy, wasteful and ineffective, while the proposed system would cause a. large saving in fresh water by enabling the Board to use water from the harbour and lengthen the life of the roads, he there- fore moved-

That the Government be informed that the Board has considered the views of the Medical Officer of Health as to the greater cost of street watering by means of carts, and is of the opinion that the greater efficiency of this method will more than compensate for the increased cost. The Board proposes, moreover to limit the use of the carts to the lower levels as suggested by the Medical Officer of Health.

Mr. EDWARD OSBORNE with the consent of the Board withdrew his motion and seconded.

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer was of the opinion that the Government should be informed that the Board desired the more expensive method of watering the streets on the lower levels on account of the great amount of vehicular traffic in Queen's Road, etc. and the necessity of laying the dust.

Question-put and agreed to.

Report of the Quarterly Inspection Committee.-The fourth quarterly report of the Inspection Com-- mittee with a minute by the Medical Officer of Health thereon was submitted.

Mr. EDWARD OSBORNE moved-

That the report be forwarded to Government.

Mr. McKIE seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

Mr. OSBORNE in continuation said, the attention of the Government should be drawn to the question of so-called hawking. These men were not bonâ fide hawkers, but only monopolised a large proportion of very narrow thoroughfares, and were not only unnecessary but a positive nuisance. He therefore moved-

That the Board request the Government to give directions prohibiting the erection of stalls in the public streets

and footpaths by so-called hawkers, who should be restricted to bonâ fide hawking.

Mr. McKIE in seconding said he could verify all that Mr. OSBORNE had said..

Mr. CH'AN A-Fook opposed the motion as he doubted the advisability of interfering with the "shop hawker" if the shop keeper in front of whose premises he erected his stall did not object or lodge any complaint with the Government.

The President said he had not yet made up his mind on the subject.

The Board then divided on the question-

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer.

Dr. HARTIGAN,

Mr. MCKIE.

Major BROWN,

The President did not vote.

The motion was therefore carried.

The Medical Officer of Health in connection with the Quarterly Inspection Committee's Report moved-

That notices be served on the owners of houses in Shek Kai Lane and Shun Pin Lane declaring the said pre- mises to be unfit for human habitation and requiring the owners to make further provision for their adequate lighting and ventilation.

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer addressed the Board and seconded. Question-put and agreed to.

The proposed New Western Market.-Plans of the proposed New Western Market were considered. The President said that these plans had been prepared in consultation with the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon.

Mr. McKIE thought that as the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon would have the control of the Western Market, it would be advisable to get his report on the plans.

      Mr. OSBORNE was of the opinion that as the Central Market was very dark, the designer might be asked whether there was sufficient light for the New Western Market.

     The President informed the Board that the New Western Market would be a much lighter place than the Central Market.

     It was agreed that the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon be requested to furnish a report particularly as to accommodation, situation, number of stalls and general adaptability to Chinese wauts of the proposed New Western Market.

     The New Tung Wah Infectious Diseases Hospital.-A block plan of the site of the New Tung Wah Infectious Diseases Hospital was submitted,

      The President, in reply to a minute by Dr. HARTIGAN relative to the submission of plans, said he thought he would be creating a dangerous precedent if he put the plans of private individuals before the Board for public criticism.

Dr. WM. HARTIGAN pointed out that the stench arising from the hillside almost directly above the site of the proposed hospital had been frequently noticed and commented upon, and that anopheles had been found flourishing and increasing in the swamp immediately below this site, he therefore moved--

That this Board strongly recommends that measures be taken with the least possible delay to remedy the danger- ous nuisance existing on the hillside at Kennedy Town above and in proximity to the New Infectious Hospital, and also that the malarious swamp situated beside the old Glass Works and below the said hospital be drained or otherwise made healthy.

Mr. McKIE in seconding said he could speak from personal knowledge of the abominable stench referred to. The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer was of the opinion that the site of the Kennedy Town Hospital was one of the very healthiest in the Colony.

The Medical Officer of Health drew attention to the differences between the site of the Kennedy Town Hospital and that of the proposed New Infectious Hospital.

Question-put and carried nem con.

     Foot and Mouth Disease.-A letter from the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon informing the Board that Sassoon's Villa premises at Pokfulam may now be declared free from disease was considered.

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer moved-

That the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon be asked to give a full and minute report on the recent outbreak of Foot

and Mouth disease at Pokfulam with special reference to its probable causes.

Major BROWN addressed the Board and seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

Papers. The following papers, having been circulated to the Members, were laid on the table-

1. A report by the Medical Officer of Health on the epidemic of Bubonic Plague in Hongkong during the year 1900. 2. A telegram from the Consul-General, Shanghai, dated December 11th, stating that the Chinese Authorities on

the recommendation of the Consular Body have suspended medical inspection of steamers from Hongkong.

3. A reply from the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon relative to the means adopted to prevent unexamined cattle from mixing with the cattle in the Colony, and stating that he does not think that many cattle are landed with- out his knowledge, and even if they were the Police would send them at once to the Cattle Depôts.

4. A reply from the Secretary of the Dairy Farm Company, Limited, informing the Board that the Company

obtains straw from Tsin Wan and bran and grain from Shanghai.

5. Lime-washing return for the fortnight ended December 17th, 1900.

6. Statement showing the number of Plague cases and deaths in Bombay City, from 9th October to 29th October,

1900.

7. Mortality Returns from Macao for the weeks ended 2nd and 9th December, 1900.

8. Mortality Statistics for this Colony for the weeks ended 1st and 8th December, 1900.

The work of the year.-The President observed-This being our last meeting for the year I wish to say one or two words before we part. I think we may congratulate ourselves ou much good work done in Hongkong during the year 1900. Ordinance 34 of 1899 came into operation this year, throwing a vast amount of extra work on the Sanitary Staff and not a little on the Public Works Department. Under it great improvements have been effected in letting in light into the dark and unwholesome places of the city, in draining, concreting, and lighting private streets and lanes, and in other useful work. I have now, gentlemen, only to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Adjournment.-The Board then adjourned till Thursday, the 3rd day of January, 1901.

Confirmed at a regular meeting held this 3rd day of January, 1901.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 17.

The following Report by Dr. J. C. THOMSON, M.D., M.A., on the results of his examinations of mosquitoes during the fourth quarter of 1900, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 11th January, 1901.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Colonial Secretary.

No. 3.

HONGKONG, 1st January, 1901.

SIR,--I have the honour to submit for the information of His Excellency the Governor the results of my examination of mosquitoes supplied to me during the past three months through the kind co- operation of the Honourable F. H. MAY, C.M.G., and the officers of the l'olice force stationed through- out Hongkong and the New Territory.

2. I enclose tables showing in detail my observations during the months of October, November and December respectively, and a fourth table summarizing the same for the quarter.

3. The column "Other Genera" in these tables includes all insects other than Anopheles or Culex (as a rule not mosquitoes) occasionally included in the various consignments, and for practical purposes may be discounted entirely. Deducting the total of this column, 125, from the total specimens received, 3,664, there remains a net total of 3,539 mosquitoes examined. Of these, 294, i.e. 8.3 per cent., were found to be Anopheles, of two species, and 3,245, i.e. 91.7 per cent., Culex, of seven species. In the figures that follow, I deal in each case with the net total in calculating the relative prevalence of the two more important genera of mosquitoes.

4. The monthly percentage of Anopheles and Culex in the specimens examined has been as follows:-

6. No Anopheles were found among the mosquitoes sent from the following stations:-

25

No. 2, No. 3, No. 6, No. 7, No. 8, Kennedy Town, Shaukiwan, Tsim Sha Tsui, Yau- mati, Fuk Tsun Heung, Hunghom, Kowloon City, Sha Tin, Sai Kung, and Kat 0.

7. I have received no specimens during the past three months from Central Station, No. 5, Mount Gough, Tsat Tsze Mui, Stone Cutters' Island, Sha Tin Gap, Au Tau, or Ping Shan, but all the other Police stations have contributed more or less regularly.

8. I do not propose to include in these returns mosquitoes that I breed out from the larval state in captivity for purposes of my investigation, nor considerable numbers that are from other sources sent to me for examination, since these are to some extent selected. At the Police stations no selec- tion is made, all insects believed to be mosquitoes caught at certain dates being forwarded to me; and as the stations are approximately equally scattered over the Colony and its Dependencies, they

                           I fairly well represent the whole area. propos, if time at my disposal permit, to extend my enquiry over the whole of 1901, and, while the examination of any particular package of mosquitoes may yield information of no great value, the aggregate of my observations should result in an approximately accurate classification of the mosquitoes that prevail in the Colony.

I have the honour, to be,

Sir,

Your obedient servant,

Dr. JOHN BELL,

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

HONGKONG HARBOUR.

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART, Colonial Secretary.

From the 14th instant until further notice (about six weeks) sunken obstructions will be laid to the North and South of Stone Cutters' Island.

 To the South of Stone Cutters' Island the southern limit of the obstructed area, from the 14th to the 18th instant inclusive, will be a line between two buoys carrying red flags and about 600 yards north of the fairway. Lines true North from these buoys to Stone Cutters' Island will give the eastern and western limits of the obstructed area.

On the 19th instant part of this area will be cleared and the southern limit will then be about 700 yards from Stone Cutters' Island and marked as before by 2 buoys carrying red flags, the eastern- most buoy being approximately 700 yards due South of the southeastern point of Stone Cutters' Island, the western buoy about 700 yards due West of the first mentioned buoy. Lines due North Within this area from these buoys will give the eastern and western limits of the obstructed area. the obstructions will at all times be floating.

To the North of Stone Cutters' Island the obstructed area will be bounded on the West by a line drawn from the most northern point of the Island to the Watering Pier at Lai-chi-kok, and on the East by a line drawn from the Government Pier on the North shore near the Magazines in a N.N.E. direction to the mainland. A fairway about 250 yards wide will be buoyed through the middle of this obstructed area, being marked on the North by 3 buoys carrying red flags and on the South by 3 buoys carrying white flags. No obstructions will be laid within this fairway, but vessels and junks are prohibited from anchoring therein. The obstructions to the South of the fairway will be floating, those to the North sunken. For purposes of navigation the sunken obstructions may be considered as reducing the depths of water shown on the Chart by 11 feet.

All vessels are prohibited from anchoring in any of the obstructed area, and also from passing through areas in which floating obstructions are moored.

At night the buoys to the southward of Stone Cutters will be marked by red lights.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH JANUARY, 1901. GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 33.

The following Minutes are publishe.

By Command,

J. H. STEWART LOCKHART,

Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 19th January, 1901.

No. 1.

  Minutes of the proceedings of the SANITARY BOARD, at a regular meeting held on Thursday, the 3rd day of January, 1901.

PRESENT:

The Director of Public Works, (The Honourable ROBERT DALY ORMSBY), President.

The Captain Superintendent of Police, (The Honourable FRANCIS HENRY MAY, C.M.G.), Vice-President.

The Medical Officer of Health, (Dr. FRANCIS WILLIAM CLARK).

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer, (Dr. JOHN Bell).

EDWARD ÖSBORNE, Esquire.

FUNG WA CHUN, Esquire.

CH'AN A-FOOK, Esquire. Dr. WILLIAM HARTIGAN.

JAMES MCKIE, Esquire.

Major HARRY HERBERT BROWN, R.A.M.C.

ABSENT:

The Registrar General, (The Honourable JAMES HALDANE STEWART LOCKHART, C.M.G.).

Minutes.-The minutes of regular meeting No. 27 held on the 20th day of December, 1900, were confirmed. Malarial Research.-A letter from the Honourable Colonial Secretary informing the Board that all reports received from time to time on the subject of Malarial Research will be forwarded for its consideration, was laid on the table.

   Malaria, Kennedy Town.-In connection with the above it was agreed on the suggestion of Dr. WM. HARTIGAN that the attention of the Government be drawn to the fact that a reply to Sanitary Board Letter No. 178 dated November 25th, embodying a resolution requesting to be informed exactly what the Government proposes to do at Kennedy Town with a view to the abolition of the anopheles pools in the immediate neighbourhood of the Inspector's quarters, had not been received.

Suggested Verbal Amendments to existing Bye-laws.-A letter from the Medical Officer of Health was submitted informing the Board that the 15 Public Health Ordinances have been consolidated, the various Bye-laws made under these Ordinances collected and classified, and suggesting the following verbal amendments to existing Bye-laws:-

Drainage Bye-laws." The words 'reconstruct, alter, or amend' should be added after the word construct' in the first line of Bye-law 1.

"In Bye-laws 2 and 3 the word 'new' should have been deleted by the amending Bye-law recently approved, but as this was not done it should be done now.

"In Bye-law 12 it is provided that no main house drain shall be less than six inches in clear internal diameter.' As it is not uncommon for four-inch pipes to be used for this purpose, the word 'six' should be altered to four.'

"In Bye-laws 5 and 34 the substitution of the words 'water and air-tight' should be made for 'water or air-tight.'

66

Bye-law 45 should be altered so as to correspond exactly with Bye-law 3 as to approval of plans by the Sanitary Surveyor.

Notification of Infectious Disease Bye-law.-"In Bye-laws 1, 2, and 3 medical practitioners and others should be required to send certificates of infectious diseases to the Medical Officer of Health and not to the Secretary of the Board or to the Registrar General. Bye-law 2 should however retain the option of the occupiers of premises to notify the officer in charge of the nearest Police Station, who should under Bye-law 3 immediately inform the Medical Officer of Health.

Removal of Patients.-"Bye-law 2 seems to require the word 'shall' instead of 'may' before 'remove' in the first line and before 'bury' in the fourth line.

"Bye-law 3 appears to be merely a repetition of section 35 of the new Ordinance (section 29 of the Public Health Ordinance, No. 24 of 1887) and might therefore be repealed."

The President was of opinion that a six-inch pipe should be insisted on, and moved―

That the Board adopt the amendments with the exception of that substituting a four-inch drain pipe for u

six-inch.

The Medical Officer of Health said in regard to the size of the pipe required that it was a matter of opinion, and seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

Suggested Scheme of Sanitary Reform.-The Vice-President, pursuant to notice, asked-

What steps have the Board taken in answer to an invitation made to the Board in May last by direction of the Officer Administering the Government to formulate a scheme of sanitary improvements in this Colony? The President in reply said the Board forwarded a number of preliminary recommendations to the Government under date of July 23rd last (C.S.O. 1415 of 1900) and July 24th last (S.B. Letter No. 115), to which no replies have yet been received.

$

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 19TH JANUARY, 1901.

57

Mr. EDWARD OSBORNE, in connection with the above question and reply, traced the origin of the invitation referred to in the question of the Vice-President to the rejection of the Trust Scheme and the Board's resolution relative to the annual setting aside of a percentage of the rates and premia on land sales for purposes identical with the objects of the Trust, and in continuation said that a comprehensive scheme had not been drawn up, as the Board felt that there was very little hope of a comprehensive embodiment of their recommendations on sanitary improvements being accepted, and therefore, pursuant to notice, moved-

That in regard to the Acting Colonial Secretary's Letter to the Sanitary Board of 1st May, 1900, asking the Board to formulate a comprehensive scheme of sanitary improvements, a reply be sent that the Board are not disposed to formulate such a scheme unless some assurance be forthcoming that the Government will give immediate effect to some at least of the Board's recommendations.

Dr. WM. HARTIGAN referred to the extensive enquiries, trouble and personal inspection involved in drawing up the Trust Scheme, and seconded.

The Vice-President spoke in opposition and pointed out that the results of the Board's recent recommendations were, the Insanitary Properties Bill had been put into law, the augmentation of the Sanitary Staff, the erection of latrines, the insertion of $140,000 to increase the water supply; and continuing said it was the duty of the Board to put before the Government what they thought was right.

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer thought that the Board had no right to make conditions with Government. The Medical Officer of Health said the point at issue was whether the Board had laid before the Government sufficient schemes for some few years to come or whether it was necessary to prepare further large schemes for their consideration. The schemes which had been laid before the Government and which had not yet been carried out were, provision of additional latrines and public urinals, the erection of a refuse destructor, the disposal of the Peak night soil, a European reservation at Kowloon, the extension of the Board's power in dealing with insanitary property, the formation of a subor- dinate medical and sanitary staff for service in periods of epidemic, and the erection of dwellings for the European staff of the Board, and therefore in his opinion any more comprehensive scheme was uncalled for.

Major BROWN spoke in support of the motion.

The President referred to the good work effected by Ordinance 34 of 1899, the impossibility of reserving a European area in Kowloon, and said he was unable to support the motion.

The Board then divided on the motion.

Scavenging of Kowloon.-Major BROWN drew attention to the first paragraph of the Kowloon scavenging contract and pointed out the inability of the contractor to keep the sidewalks clean owing to their obstruction and the deposition of rubbish on them. He was of opinion that this unsatisfactory state of affairs arose from the narrowness of the sidewalks and roads and, pursuant to notice, moved―

That the Board draw the attention of the Government-

(1) to the fact that the Kowloon Scavenging Contractor is unable to carry out Condition No. 1 of his Contract, namely, the daily sweeping and cleansing of the sidewalks, owing to the low vegetation, undesirable trees and refuse heaps which now obstruct them.

(2) to the desirability of orders being issued to the Police to prevent the recurrence of any obstruction on the

sidewalks in the future.

Mr. McKIE said if the matter was brought before the Government it would be attended to, and seconded. The Vice-President addressed the Board in opposition.

The Board then divided on the motion.

Removal of Dead Figs from the Animal Depôts.-A report of the theft of a pig from the Animal Depôts and a minute by the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon thereon suggesting that the Government be asked to place the Depôts under Police supervision from the hours of 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly, or as an alterative that the depôts be fenced so as to render impossible the removal therefrom of any sheep or pigs without the knowledge of the Inspector-in-charge, were considered.

The Medical Officer of Health moved-

That the minute of the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon he forwarded to Government for the consideration of the

Honourable Director of Public Works.

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

In reference to the latter part of the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon's minute it was agreed that the consideration of the question of compensating the owner for the loss of the pig be postponed until the owner had submitted his claim.

Foot and Mouth Disease, Pokfulam.-A report furnished by the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon in reply to Sanitary Board letter under date of December 21st, 1900, on the recent outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease at Pokfulam, was submitted.

The Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer drew attention to the style in which the report was written and pointed out that the Board had requested the Colonial Veterinary Surgeon to give the specific cause of the recent outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease at Pokfulam and not the general cause of this disease.

Major BROWN agreed with the Acting Principal Civil Medical Officer.

The Limewashing Return-for the fortnight ended December 31st, was submitted.

   In view of the annual recurrence of plague during the early part of the year, it was agreed, on the suggestion of Mr. OSBORNE, to request the Medical Officer of Health to pay special attention to the cleansing of the city during the next two or three months.

   It was also agreed, on the suggestion of the Vice-President, that the attention of the Government should be drawn to the large influx of Chinese for the Race Meeting with a view to steps being taken for its diminution.

Papers.-The following papers, having been circulated to the Members, were laid on the table :-

1. A letter from the Honourable Colonial Secretary informing the Board that His Excellency the Governor approved of the Board's proposal relative to watering the streets on the lower level, and requesting the Acting Secretary to order four carts from the lowest tenderer as recommended by the Board.

The Council met pursuant to summons.

The Minutes of the last Meeting, held on the 17th December, 1900, were read and confirmed. His Excellency the Governor addressed the Council as follows:-

Honourable Members of the Legislative Council,--I have summoned you to-day to make to you formally the saddest announcement that has ever been made during the exist- ence of this Colony-to announce to you that our revered and beloved Queen is dead. During a long reign begun before any Member of this Council was born, Her Majesty Queen VICTORIA, the purest and greatest monarch of historic times, devoted her life to the welfare of her country. Never was monarch more faithful, never was monarch more beloved. In her letter of the 27th January, 1892, when acknowledging in touching and noble words the expression of loyal and loving sympathy from all classes of the empire on the occasion of the death of the Duke of Clarence, the Queen wrote:-"My bereavements, during the last 30 years of reign, have indeed been heavy. Though the labours, anxieties, and responsibilities inseparable from my position have been great, yet it is my earnest prayer that God may continue to give me health and strength to work for the good and happiness of my dear country and empire while life lasts." And God has granted her prayer, for to the last the Queen preserved those marvellous powers and royal gifts of wisdom and foresight which were always exercised in the interests of the peace and progress of the world. And now the gracious monarch of the greatest nation on earth; the perfect Queen, the stainless wife, the devoted mother has entered into her rest crowned with the triple diadem of strength and

truth and purity, and enveloped in the loving veneration not alone of all the peoples of her world-wide empire but of the great mass of the thinking people of the world. Within the last hour I have received the following two telegrams :

"In the name of the people of Portuguese India and mine, I present to your Excellency the respects of our heartfelt grief for the great loss which the noble British nation has sustained by the demise of the Queen Empress. Victoria of everlasting

memory.

GALHARDO, Governor."

"With the greatest regret I present to your Excellency the expressions of my deep grief, and in the name of this Colony I accompany all the English people in their dolour by the death of Her Gracious Majesty the Queen Empress.

""

GOVERNOR of Macao.' For us as representing this Colony it but remains humbly to lay at the feet of their Majes- ties, whom God protect, our expressions of loyal condolence, and for that purpose I propose the following resolution :-

"That the Members of this Council have heard with profound sorrow the sad announcement of the death of Her Majesty the Queen, and desire humbly to express their most heartfelt, loyal, and respectful sympathy with their Majesties and the Royal Family in their bereavement."

7.9

The Honourable C. P. CHATER addressed the Council as follows:

Your Excellency,-As the Senior Unofficial Member of the Council, the sad task lies upon ine to formally second the humble expression of our grief which your Excellency has proposed. Little could we have thought but one short week ago that so dire a blow was falling on her late Majesty's subjects, or foreseen that her nation was losing its august and beloved Queen. It is not for us now to dwell upon her royal worth as a monarch, her thoughtfulness, her care, her solicitude for her people. These things the past has verified to all, and the history of the future can only prove yet more and more the immensity of our loss. To their Majesties the King and Queen of Great Britain and Ireland and the Royal Family we tender, in the words of the resolution, our most heartfelt, loyal, and respectful sympathy, and if what we say to-day can lighten, though but for a moment, their burden of sorrow, we, Sir, may venture to hope that we shall not have spoken altogether in vain I beg to second your Excellency's resolution.

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

Sir,-As the representative on this Council of the British Chinese subjects and the Chinese community of this Colony, I and my colleague desire to express, on their behalf and on behalf of ourselves, our entire concurrence with the sentiments which have been expressed by your Excellency and by the Honourable the Senior Unofficial Member. In the sad death of our well-beloved and much-respected Queen, we have sustained a great and irrepar- able loss. We feel that we have not only lost a just, august, and mighty Sovereign, but also a kind and affectionate Mother, whose parental care has for more than half a century cast a mantle of protection and peace over us and our island home. No part of the British Empire could feel the dreadful loss we have just sustained more than this Far Eastern Colony, and none in this isle could mourn her loss more than her loyal Chinese subjects. inhabiting its shores, seeing that this Colony was born as it were in Her Majesty's reign, and brought up through the successive stages of infancy and childhood under her fostering and watchful care, and that we, Her Majesty's Chinese subjects, owe our liberty, security, wealth, and happiness, and indeed our all, to her wise and beneficent rule. Truly, to us the loss is woefully great, and our sorrow and grief are proportionately profound. I regret, Sir, that in a great national calamity and affliction of this nature, our hearts are too full and overwhelmed to give appropriate expression to our sorrow, or to convey to those who, on account of natural ties, are even more afflicted than we are, an adequate sense of our heart- felt sympathy and sincere condolence. We can only say that we sincerely mourn with those that mourn and weep with those that weep, and that our united and earnest prayer will ever be " May God bless and comfort Their Majesties and Members of the Royal Family in their sore distress and bereavement.'

His Excellency asked every member who sympathised with the Resolution to rise.

All rose, and the Resolution was carried unanimously. The Council then adjourned sine die.

Read and confirmed, this 31st day of January, 1901.

DRAINAGE.

Preliminary Explanatory Notes.

A. The following notes convey, in general terms, the principles that should guide the design and construction of house-drains. Before proceeding to lay down in detail the instructions which should be attended to, in order to apply the same satisfactorily, it must be observed that no code of instructions can possibly embrace every case that will occur. It must be remembered that no system of house-drainage that has yet been devised, or probably will ever be devised, does away with the necessity for care in use. The real remedy for the inconveniences which are too often experienced from house-drains lies, not in any elaboration of appliances. but in careful construction, careful use, and a reasonably liberal water supply. Without the co-operation of the public, the Sanitary Authority is almost powerless to effect improvement. It is therefore to be hoped that the public will assist, by insisting on good construction and the proper use of house-drains.

B. The object of a house-drain is to carry off, from the dwelling to the street-sewer, water fouled by use, together with all the solid or semi-solid refuse which is usually associated therewith, such as excrement of men or domestic animals. refuse from cooking and the like; in short, the foul liquid usually known as sewage.

The sewage as

C. The house-drain must be "self-cleansing." produced in the daily life of the inmates must flow through the drain with a current sufficiently rapid to sweep along with it all suspend- ed matter, so that no permanent deposit can take place. A drain in which deposit takes place is a cesspool in disguise, from which offensive cmanations find their way into the dwelling; and from which putrid sewage flows into the street-sewers, making them ex- ceedingly offensive. A badly constructed or badly kept house-drain is, therefore, not only a source of danger to the inmates of the house that it drains, but a public nuisance also. Unless house-drains are well made and properly used, no system of street-sewers, however perfect, can work in a satisfactory manner.

D. Water being the agent which cleanses the house-drains, its liberal use by the inmates of the dwelling is essential to the proper maintenance of house-drains. The sewage must be well diluted. Nevertheless the quantity of water necessary for the proper cleansing of house-drains is not excessive. The water normally used by the inmates of a dwelling for washing and cooking is sufficient for this purpose, provided that it is readily obtainable at all times, either in the dwelling or in close proximity thereto.

E. The principal point to be attended to, in the design of house- drains, is so to arrange matters that the sewage, as produced, shall flow through them in the most rapid current practicable; so that all suspended matter shall be swept away at once and completely.

7. The speed of a stream flowing through a pipe or channel, of given size and shape, depends upon the following conditions :- (a) The inclination of the channel.

(b) The smoothness of its surface.

(c) The volume of the stream.

The steeper the slope and the smoother the sides of the channel, the swifter will be the current. The greater the volume of the stream inclination being the same, the greater the speed.

Thus if a 12" and a 3" pipe have the same inclination the velocity in the 12" pipe would be about twice as great as in the 3′′ pipe, pro- vided that both were half full. But to fill the two pipes to this extent, the quantity of water passing through the 12" pipe would be about thirty-two times that passing through the 3" pipe. But if the same quantity flowed through both pipes, then the current in the 3" pipe, being more concentrated, would flow more rapidly than that in the partially filled 12" pipe.

130

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST FEBRUARY, 1901.

G. These considerations would lead to the conclusion that the best size. to be used for any house-drain, would be that which would just suffice to carry off the sewage with the pipe not less than

half full. Within certain limitations, this is the case.

H. In the case of street-sewers draining large districts, from which the flow of sewage is comparatively regular and capable of estimation, the proper size of sewer may be calculated with some approach to precision. In the case of house-drains, however, such precision is impracticable. The rate of flow is irregular and the quantity of sewage depends upon the habits of the inmates. Were the size of a house-drain calculated to carry off even a most liberal water supply, which is. for practical purposes, the measure of the sewage, it would be found, in the vast majority of cases, to be much less than that which experience has shewn to be applicable in practice. It has been found that a house-drain less than a certain size is inconveniently liable to stopp ges, caused by extraneous matters, such as rags, paper and the like, which occasionally find their way into the best managed house-drains.

I. The minimum size of house-drain is usually fixed at from four to ix inches in diameter. A four-inch drain, construc ed in the usual manner, is probably somewhat small as a minimum ; and a six-inch somewhat large. A diameter of five inches, were this size readily obtainable, would be a better minimum.

J. Whenever the minimum size will suffice it should be used. In leed, subject to the limit laid down in the preceding paragraph, and to certain conditions to be set forth later on, the smaller the house-drain the beter. The use of unnecessarily large boudrains amounts to an abandonment of the self-cleansing principle. If a drain is so large that the normal flow of sewage cannot fill it to a sufficient depth to establish a self-cleansing velocity, deposit takes place and goes on, either till the pipe is choked and the sewage escaps through leaks, to the sub-soil, or until the deposit has accumulated sufficiently to reduce the area of the sewage-way to that which will establish a current sufficiently rapid to prevent further deposit.

K. In order that the size of house-drains may be reduced to the minimum practicable, in each instane. rain-water should be ex- clu led from them as far as possible Rai-water cannot, however, be wholly excluded from house-trains. Many uncovered surfaces, such as back-yards, rece ve slops and foul-water in the course of daily use and this must be carried off by the house-drains. v dupli- cate set of drains for such areas, one for sewage and the other for rain-water. would be a costly complication and there would be no security that eac set would be used for its proper purpose only. Some sewage would almost inevitably find its way into the rain- water drain, which, being of large size, would be imperfectly flushed and therefore offensive.

L. Rain-water should be diverted from house-drains to the full extent that is possible by the use of surface-channels. As a general rule, when surface-channels cannot be used to divert rain-water, it must be admitted to the house-drain. Hence, in the majority of cases, the amount of rain-water to be carried off determines the size of the house-drain. The table. hereunto attached, gives the area from which 4" of rain, falling in one hour, will be carried off by pipes of various sizes, laid at different inclinations. In providing for the removal of rain-fall, from a given surface, it is to be remem- bered that it is not sufficient to provide a pipe of ample size to carry off the rain-f 11. Traps and gratings must be provided in sufficient numbers and of sizes to admit the rain-water freely to the drain and the surface must have a fall to carry it to the openings. In many cases neglect of these precautions has caused flooding. This has been put down to the size of the pipes, whereas the inlets were really at fault.

Rain-water cannot be looked upon as a legitimate agent for cleansing house-drains from deposit. Firstly, there should be no deposit to remove from well constructed and properly managed drains; and secondly, because there are long intervals in which no rain fails so that this flushing agent fails when most wanted.

M. The irregularity and uncertainty of the flow of sewage, which precludes an accurate determination of size, makes it impracticable to calculate definitely the proper inclination of house-drains. Ex- perience shows that, under the normal conditions of use, an inclina- * tion of one in thirty is desirable to ensure a self-cleansing drain; especially when the drain conveys the sewage from a single trap or inlet. An inclination of one in thirty, therefore. should, as a rule, be given to house-drains. Drains laid at much flatter gradients can be made to work perfectly, with care, and provided that the flow of sewage is copious. ... sufficient to fill the pipe nearly half full. The designer of house-drains, having no control over their sub- sequent usage, will do well to give them, in every case, the greatest practicable fall.

19

N. The ordinary trap or syphon is not a perfect preventive against the escape of sewage-tainted air from house-drains, although it is the only appliance available for the purpose. The water which seals the trap may evaporate during disuse, or a piece of fibrous matter may act like a syphon and draw off the water sufficiently to leave a free passage for the escape of sewage-tainted air. Again. if there be a series of inlets connected to a drain which is unprovided with any free outlet, a sudden rush of water through one trap will force the air contained in the drain through the other traps or unseal them by drawing off their contents, and open a passage for the escape of sewage-tainted air into the dwelling, or into some confined space in its neighbourhood. Consequently. house drains must be ventilated," or rather provided with vents, to prevent the accumulation of sewage-tainted air therein. and to secure the efficiency of the trips. To effect this thoroughly, the drain must have, at or near its extremities, openings giving a free escape to the air within it, and between these openings, there should be no trap · or other obstruction to the free passage of air.

+

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST FEBRUARY, 1901. 181

O. These ventilating-openings should be so placed that any sewage-tainted air which may escape from them shall be as little offensive as possible. With this object the inner ventilating open- ing should be placed above the roof of the dwelling. This is usually done by carrying up a pipe, having a free opening at the top, above the roof and at a distance from any window. The second opening is usually made on the house-side of the trap which severs the direct communication between the drain and the public sewer. If, how- ever, there be no trap between the house-drain and the sewer then there is no necessity for a second opening, the sewer itself serving the purpose.

With a well constructed system of self-cleansing street-sewers this arrangement may be adopted with safety, even with advantage. Then every house-drain ventilator serves as a sewer ventilator also ; and when this is done universally, no accu- mulation of sewer-tainted air can take place in any part of the system.

P. Care must be taken in selecting the position of the lower ventilating opening because the elevated ventilating pipe by no means secures a permanent upward current of air. According to the relative temperature of the air within and without the drain. to the direction and force of the wind, so an upward or downward .. current will obtain.

Q. Complete ventilation is especially important when any part of the house-drain system is in communication with the interior of the dwelling; or where the system is extensive and has numerous inlets. It is essential where water-closets are used, or where the drains receive excrementitious matter. In the case of a short length of drain. leading from a single inlet, placed in an open space, such as a back-yard, though desirable, it is less necessary and may be omitted without serious dinger.

R. Any direct communication between the interior of the house and the house-drain should be avoided. Pipes carrying water from baths or sinks, within the dwelling, should therefore deliver their effluent above trapped gulleys in the open air. The effluent from baths or sinks, ou upper storeys should, whenever practicable, be received by open-topped pipes, delivering freely above trapped gulleys at or a little below the ground-level. If, as in the case of water-closets, a direct communication has to be made between a fitting inside the house and the drain, then there must be complete ventii tion by means of a pipe carried up outside and to the top of the building.

1. Any owner or occupier of private premises about to construct reconstruct, alter or amend any drain shall give at least seven days' previous written notice of such intention to the Board, and such notice shall be delivered at the Office of the Board, in a form of which printed blank copies may be obtained gratis in English and Chinese on application at the Office of the Poard, or, in the case of the villages, at any village Police Station between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

2. Every such notice shall specify the name of the street, the num- ber of the lot and the number of the house, if any, which it is intend- ed to drain, and shall be accompanied by a plan in duplicate of the premises drawn on a scale of not less than twenty feet to the inch, and such plan must show the whole of the drains with their pro- posed sizes figured thereon, and a section or sections showing the proposed falls or inclination and drawn to the same scale and to a vertical scale of not less than ten feet to the inch. The plan must also show the position and course of all proposed surface gutters.

Except that in case of suburban lots which cannot be conveniently included within a plan of ordinary dimensions, when the lot and the out-fall drain may be shown on a scale of not less than one hundred feet to the inch.

3. Within seven days after receipt of the notice, the Sanitary Surveyor shall, by means of a written communication, in English or Chinese as may be necessary, inform the person who has given the said notice whether his designs and proposed mode of construction are approved or disapproved, and in case of disapproval such modi- fications or improvements as may be requisite in order to comply with the provisions of The Public Health Ordinance and of any bye-laws made thereunder shall be indicated in detail to such person by the Sanitary Surveyor, and it shall not be lawful for such person to commence the drainage works until the approval thereto of the Sanitary Surveyor shall have been previously obtained by him, and in the case of such appro- val one copy of the deposited plan shall be returned to him, and the remaining copy shall remain filed in the Office of the Sanitary Sur- veyor.

No. The approval of plans conveyed by the anitary Surveyor under this bye- law certifies simply to the fact that the plans are in accordance with the l'ublic Health Ordinance and with the bye-laws made thereander, but signifies no approval of the sufficiency or otherwise of the plan and throws no responsibility on the Boaril. 4. Any person carrying out excavations for drainage works on any premises contiguous to a public thoroughfare, whereby the safety of the public may be jeopardized, shall light such excavations by means of a lantern or lanterns kept lighted through the night, and he shall further provide watchmen, erect hoardings and otherwise take such precautions as may be necessary for securing the safety of the public and the protection of adjoining properties.

5. House-drains shall be made of impervious materials with smooth internal surfaces, such as well glazed earthen-ware pipes or cast-iron pipes protected against rust or corrosion by suitable asphal- tic coating. The drains shall be so constructed as to be water and air-tight. In jointing pipes with cement, tarred-hemp shall be caulk- ed into the joint before the cement is applied, and care shall be taken that no cement or other jointing material projects from the joints into the interior of the pipes; and any such projecting material or other irregularities in the bore of the drain shall be carefully removed.

6. House-drains shall be firmly bedded in selected material free from large stones and well rammed into place.

7. All stoneware pipes shall be well glazed and free from cracks and flaws and shall have a thickness of not less than one-twelfth of their diameter.

8. Disconnecting chambers shall be red brick manholes fitted with stoneware traps and ventilating grates of iron or stone.

9. Lime mortar used for the building of manholes shall be com- posed of three parts of sand or red earth and one part of good lime.

10. Lime concrete used for encasing drains shall be composed of four parts of good sound clean stone, broken to half inch cubes, two parts of red earth and one part of lime thoroughly well mixed and well rammed into place.

11. Cement mortar used for the jointing of pipes or any other work shall be mixed in the proportions of three parts of clean sharp sand and one part of good Portland cement and used fresh.

12. No main house-drain shall be less than six inches in clear internal diameter.

13. Subject to the limitation mentioned in the preceding bye-law, no main house-drain shall be larger than is necessary in the opinion. of the Board to carry off the sewage of the dwelling, or the sewage with the rain-water, which, under conditions hereinafter specified in Nos. 38, 39, 40 and 41 of these bye-laws shall be admitted to the house-drain.

14. Every house-drain shall have the maximum fall, throughout its length, that the relative levels of the public sewer and of the most remote inlet, will admit of:

Provided always--

(a) That the maximum available fall does not exceed one in thirty (or 4 inches in 10 feet). If it does, then the part of the drain, more remote from the public sewer, may be laid with a fall of one in thirty; and the remainder, with such greater fall as may be necessary to connect with the pub- lic sewer.

(b) That the excavation, necessary to obtain the maximum avail- able fall, is not of such a nature as to endanger the sta- bility of the adjoining or neighbouring property.

In these and similar cases the gradient may be reduced subject to the approval of the Board.

15. Whenever a reduction of fall (below the standard grade 1 in 30) is necessary or permissible, it shall, wherever practicable, be made in the portion of the drain nearest to the outlet, rather than in the part nearest to the inlet, and in the main trunk of the drain rather than in the branches.

NOTE. The available fall in a house-drain, 100 feet long, is 2 feet 6 inches or one in forty. It will be better to make the first thirty feet from the inlet, with a fall of 1 foot, or 1 in 30; and the remaining length of 70 feet with a fall of 1 in 46,66, than to give an uniform fall throughout.

It is clear that an obstruction at A would be more easily removed than one at B, in the pipe of uniform gradient, because it would have a greater head of water behind it; and in flowing from the inlet to it, the stream will have attained a certain momentum, tending to carry it on, through the flatter part of the pipe. e.g. (2)

If the main-drain AB were given an uniform fall of 1 in 30, then C would be 1 foot below B and D. Then CD would have a fail of 1 in 40 only. The proper course to pursue would be to give CD a fall of one in thirty, or 1′ 4′′ in all. BC would then have a fall of 1′ 4′′ in 30, or 1 in 22), and CA a fall of 1′ 8′′ in 60 feet; or one in thirty-six.

16. Whenever the gradient of any portion of a drain is less than one in thirty, the Sanitary Board may in its discretion require an automatic flush tank or any other suitable contrivance for attaining an effective flush to be used.

17. All changes of direction in house-drains shall be made by means of properly curved pipes or by half channels in manholes and between the points at which any change of direction occurs, all house- drains shall be laid in straight lines and regular grades from point to point.

NOTE. (Inasmuch as changes of direction are the points at which obstructions most frequently occur, and for the purpose of removing obstructions generally, house holders will do well to provide, at each change of direction, a manhole, giving access to the drain. For this purpose the anhole should be made 3 feet by 1 foot 6 inches to the surface or to a depth of five feet above the drain. Beyond this depth the manhole may be narrowed to I foot 6 inches by 1 foot 6 inches. But such anhole should not be found in cook-houses or in p aces where they may be opened and used as receptacles for the disposal of solid rubbish.)

18. No drain shall be so constructed as to pass under any build- ing except when any other mode of construction is impracticable. Any drain passing under a building shall, whenever possible, be laid in one straight line for the whole distance beneath such building, and shall be imbedded and incased throughout its entire length in four inches of good concrete.

Whenever a drain traverses soft or yielding ground, or where water may make its appearance in the trench, the drain shall be surrounded throughout its entire length with four inches of good concrete.

The stones composing the matrix of the concrete in both cases shall be of a size to pass through a half-inch ring.

19. No drain shall be constructed in such manner as to allow any inlet to such drain to be placed inside any building.

20. The aggregate area of the openings in any grating fixed on inlets to waste-pipes from baths or sinks shall not be less than four square inches and the waste-pipe shall not have a less internal dia- meter than 1 inches.

NOTE-The object of this is to secure an efficient flush.

21. Traps or gulleys for the removal of rain-water shall be pro- vided with gratings having the nett area of the openings not less than twice the area of the trap or pipe. Such gratings shall be sunk to a depth of at least one inch below the surrounding pavement, with a slope round them equal to half the width of the grating.

NOTE---It is not sufficient to provide pipes of ample diameter; there must be open- ings of sufficient size to admit the rain to them.

22. Traps at the inlets to drains shall be placed so that the water- level in them is not less than one foot below the ground, and such traps shall be placed as low down as the level of the house-drain or branch will permit of; provided that the depth be not more than two feet.

23. Traps shall have not less than two inches of water seal and shall be securely fixed to the drain. All stoneware traps shall be surrounded with a thickness of four inches of lime concrete.

24. No person shall construct or fix in connection with any drain or waste-pipe the form of trap of the kind known as the Bell- trap or any trap of the kind known as the trap, and all traps con- nected with any private drains shall be properly set in cement mortar to the satisfaction of the Board.

NOTE.-Bell-traps and D traps from their form give rise to deposit of filth difficult to remove by flashing.

25. Every main house-drain, wherever practicable, shall be venti- lated at its upper end by an opening in free communication with the outer air. This opening shall be placed in such a position as to ren- der any emanations from it as little obnoxious as possible.

NOTE.-(This is, in most cases, to be done by carrying up a well-jointed pipe, not less than four inches in clear internal diameter, to some point, above the eaves of the building which is not in close proximity to any window or chimney. In the case of rural or suburban tenements, the ventilating opening may be provided on any eminence, or open space at a distance from te dwelling, the ventilating pipe and opening, in this case, being not less than four inches in internal diameter.)

26. Every main house-drain shall have a ventilating opening near to its lower end, and no trap or other obstruction to the free circula- tion of air shall exist between this opening and the one described in the preceding bye-law.

If there be a trap between the house-drain and the public sewer, then an opening shall be made on the house-side of the trap, and the said opening shall be so arranged as to give access to the trap for inspection, cleansing or repair.

If there be no trap between the public sewer and the house-drain no special opening need be provided at the lower end.

27. Drains leading from a single trap and not being more than sixty feet long, need not be provided with an elevated ventilating opening at their upper end; but, if this be omitted, they shall be pro- vided with a trap, disconnecting them from the public sewer, and shall have a ventilating opening at the lower end on the house-side of the trap.

28. Ventilating and fall pipes of stoneware shall be securely fixed to the exterior surfaces of walls with wrought iron bands fitted round the pipe and made fast to the wall with two wrought iron spikes not less than four inches in length. Metal pipes shall also be fixed as above or shall have two ears fixed to them and secured to the wall with two wrought iron spikes, not less than four inches long.

29. Down-pipes, conveying rain-water from roofs, shall be con- structed of cast or welded wrought-iron, and when the down-pipe discharges into the house-drain it shall be completely disconnected, therefrom, as described in No. 31 of these bye-laws and fitted with a bend, shoe or pedestal pipe. Wherever practicable, the rain-water downpipes on the street side of buildings, shall be carried under the footpath and discharge into the side-channel.

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

'

134

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST FEBRUARY, 1901.

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

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

31. Waste-pipes, as well as down-pipes from roofs, shall not be connected direct with any drain but shall discharge in the open air near to or over a trap and they shall be brought down to within one foot or less from the ground.

32. No rain water-pipe from the roof of a building shall be used as a ventilating shaft to any drain which communicates or is designed to communicate with a public sewer.

Nor--Rain-water pipes t'riminate at the eaves of the house a point not high enough above windows to be a safe ventilating outlet.

33. Any person who may have laid any drain or constructed drainage works connected therewith shall not cover up such drain or works until the same shall have been previously inspected and passed by the Board, and such person shall give three clear days' written notice to the Board that such drain or works are ready for inspection, and such notice shall be delivered at the Office of the Board in a form of which printed blank copies may be obtained gratis in English and Chinese on application at the Office of the Board, or, in the case of villages, at any village Police Station between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

34. Before any drain is covered in, it shall be inspected and tested to ascertain whether it is water and air-tight; and no drain that fails in this respect shall be passed. After inspection, the earth shall be carefully filled in, above and around the drain, and thoroughly ram- med and consolidated. For a depth of at least six inches, above the summit of the sockets of the pipe, selected material, free from stones larger than will pass through a 2-inch ring, shall be used in filling in the trench.

35. The floors of cook-louses, stables, cow-sheds and the like where practicable, shall be elevated above the ground outside the dwelling, and be provided with surface channels, passing out through the wall, and delivering above a trapped-gulley, outside. When new drains are being laid and where the floor is at the level of the ground outside, the surface-channel of the cook-house shall be connected to a trap, outside the house, by a straight open pipe, terminating above the water-level of the trap, which shall be accessible and in free com- munication with the air.

36. The floors of cook-houses, latrines, privies, and back-yards shall be paved with some impervious and durable material, such as granite setts, or vitrified bricks, laid on a bed of good concrete not less than four inches thick, and pointed with good mortar, or with good con- crete laid in a bed not less than six inches thick and rendered with the cement, and shall have a fall from the walls to the outlet of at least a inch to the foot.

37. All surfaces of back-yards and paved areas of premises wher- ever practicable shall have a fall, from the walls of the building towards the trap or inlet of the drain, at the rate of not less than an inch to foot, and such inlet shall be placed as far from the walls as practicable.

38. Open surfaces such as back-yards, court-yards or other spaces, on which slops are thrown, or from which foul waters flow, shall be provided with trapped connections to the house-drains, for the re- moval of such waters as well as some of the rain-water. But such surfaces shall be properly paved, in the manner prescribed for back- yards and cook-houses, so that no sand or silt may be washed into the drains from them.

39. Wherever an outlet is available, surface channels shall be provided to carry excessive rain-fall from premises, and these chan- nels shall be properly connected with the storm-water channel in the street. Traps not less than 4 inches in diameter in connection with the house-drain shall be placed in this surface channel, which will carry off slops or sewage, as well as some rain-fall.

40. Rain-water shall be diverted from house-drains by means of surface channels or otherwise to the fullest extent practicable.

41. The rain-water from roofs, which slope towards enclosed court-yards, or back-yards, may, if diversion to the surface channel is impracticable, be received into the house-drain. But no ventila- ting pipe shall be used for the conveyance of rain-water from the roof. 42. No person shall, where it can possibly be avoided, lay any pipe for conveying sub-soil drainage in such manner or in such posi- tion as to communicate direct with any sewer, cess-pool or drain used for the conveyance or reception of sewage.

NOTE. It is important to exclude sewage-tainted air from the sub-soil. The con- nection of sub-soil drains to sewers even if a trap is used is objectionable, because in dry weather the flow of the drain may cease and the water or the trap may dry up and leave a free communication between the sewer and the sub-soil drain. The object of sub-soil drainage is not only the removal of water, but the aeration of the sub-soil. The mouths of such drains therefore should be so placed that pure air can enter freely-a condition incompatible with direct connection with sewers or house- drains.

43. In every case where the course of a drain shall be diverted, any cesspool previously existing and into which such drain may have previously emptied, shall be cleansed, deodorized and filled with clean earth.

44. All drains, or drainage works, shall be built and carried out in all respects in accordance with the provisions of the Public Health Ordinance and of these bye-laws and of any that may be made here- after, and if no written notice as provided by No. 1 of these bye-laws shall have been given to the Board by any person about to construct,

45. All works connected with the construction of drains and drain-connections shall be carried out in strict accordance with the. plans and sections previously submitted to and approved by the Sanitary Surveyor or with such amendments to such plans and sec- tions as may have been required by him, and such works shall be carried out in a proper and workmanlike manner with the best materials of their respective kinds and shall be subject during their progress to the continuous control and supervision of the Officers of the Board appointed in that behalf and shall be completed to the entire satisfaction of the Board.

46. Whenever any private house drain is about to be constructed or re-constructed in the City of Victoria, the Board shall have power to require the provision of a surface channel of approved materials and design, in lieu of a covered drain, in any position in which a covered drain may appear to be undesirable.

Waste pipes from buildings and surface channels from cook-houses, stables, cow-sheds, and the like shall discharge into such surface channel without the intervention of a trap; but any communication between such surface channel and a covered drain shall be by means of a trap.

7. The contents of soil pans in public latrines shall be kept covered with either earth, saw-dust, opium-packing or such other suitable material as the Board may approve of.

8. The soil and urine collected in public latrines shall be re- moved therefrom daily by the public conservancy contractor as pro- vided for by the terms and conditions of his contract.

9. Every latrine open to the public before sunrise or after sunset shall be at such times adequately lighted.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 1ST FEBRUARY, 1901.

Memorandum on the Bill entitled An Ordinance

to consolidate and amend the laws relating to Public Health in the Colony of Hongkong.

The main object of this Ordinance is to consolidate the provisions of the various enactments relating to Public Health set forth in schedule A, so far as they are still operative and in force.

In substituting a single Ordinance for the fifteen it re- peals, it has been found necessary to make some slight alterations in the wording of some of the enactments con- solidated, so as to preserve uniformity of language, and prevent undue repetition. Nearly the whole of these amendments are purely formal, and the substance of the law remains, almost entirely, unchanged.

In section 23, however, two new sub-sections (9) and (10) have been inserted, dealing with smoke nuisances. These sub-sections follow the law in force in England as set forth in section 91 sub-section (7) of the Public Health Act, 1875, and section 24 of the Public Health (Lonlon) Act, 1891.

The principal Public Health Ordinance, No. 24 of 1887, was divided somewhat arbitrarily into six Parts, but those Parts had no headnotes referring to their respective con- tents. In the Consolidating Ordinance, the various sections are grouped together under appropriate headings. This, naturally, necessitates a new arrangement and re-numbering of the sections, but it greatly facilitates reference to any special subject matter.

Certain powers were conferred upon the Board under Part II of Ordinance No. 24 of 1887, when any part of the Colony appeared to be threatened with, or affected by, any formidable epidemic, endemic, or contagious disease, and the Governor had, with the advice of the Executive Council, issued and published in the Gazette the Procla- mation mentioned in the Ordinance. Since that time, however, all requisite powers have been conferred by the Legislature without the previous issue of such Proclamation, and it has, therefore, been deemed unnecessary to retain Part II of the Public Health Ordinance, 1887, in this Consolidation.

It will be seen that the term "Medical Officer of Health" has been substituted in this Ordinance for the term " Sanitary Superintendent" as used in Ordinances No. 24 of 1887 and No. 11 of 1895. This is because the Medical Officer of Health has, since his appointment in 1895, been appointed to perform all the duties formerly appertaining to the office of Sanitary Superintendent, which office is now merged in that of the Medical Officer of Health.

The continual effort which has been made of late years to improve the sanitation of the Colony has given rise to several amendments of the Public Health Ordinance, 1887, as well as to other Ordinances, passed with the view of securing the introduction of, at least, some light and ventila- tion into all Chinese houses, and of diminishing the evil of overcrowding in the Colony.

A large number of Bye-laws have, moreover, been made from time to time, under the repealed. Ordinances. All those at present in force have been collected together and inserted in schedule B. It has been found desirable to leave some few sections of Ordinances, No. 34 of 1899 and No. 15 of 1894, unrepealed, because such enactments as relate to the height of buildings, for instance, or to the erection, in certain cases, of verandahs, come more directly within the scope of the Ordinances relating to building than of those dealing with public health generally. When the Building Ordinances are consolidated those few sec- tions can be included in such consolidation and repealed.

The rules regulating the election of members of tho Sanitary Board, which are still in force, will be found in schedule C.

It is trusted that this Consolidating Ordinance will render the Law relating to public health more easily accessible to those interested in the subject and will faci- litate the labours of those to whom its enforcement is entrusted.

Ordinance, 1888.

Objects and Reasons.

This Ordinance consolidates the four Ordinances as to Rating which it repeals.

The definition of "tenement" is modified as regards Piers in order to comply with the provisions of section 17 of the Piers Ordinance, 1899.

Section 29 embodies the alterations effected by resolu- tions of the Legislative Council passed since Ordinance No. 5 of 1892 came into operation.

In section 35 the words "within the first month of such quarter" and "subject to the provisions of section 36" have been inserted to prevent any ambiguity.

The only substantial amendment is contained in sub- section (1.) of section 39, which is new. It confers upon the Governor in Council power, if he thinks fit so to do, to fix a minimum rateable value for tenements, below which they shall not be rateable at all: This is desirable, for in some villages there are premises the quarterly rates in respect of which amount only to a few cents, while the trouble and expense of collection and enforcement of

               pay- ment, are entirely out of proportion to the benefit derived by the Treasury. Indeed, where launch hire for the col- lector has to be taken into consideration, the revenue gains practically nothing. The remaining amendments are only formal."

An Ordinance to amend Ordinance 7 of

1873. [21st February, 1885.]

Objects and Reasons.

The object of this Bill is to place on the Statute. Book of the Colony the Trustee Act, 1893. By that Act a number of enactments relating to trustees are repealed and re-enacted with amendments. By its enactment here the members of the legal profession and other persons interested in trusts will have to the full the guidance and assistance which can be derived from the English cases and text books on the subject of trusts. There will be the further advantage resulting from its enactment that several of the English Trustee Acts which form part of the law of the Colony but are not to be found on the local Statute Book, having been enacted by the unfortunate method of reference, will be swept away. See Ordinance No 7 of 1856. These Acts so enacted are proposed, however, to be repealed not by this Ordinance but by the Civil Procedure (Statutes Repeal) Ordinance, 1901, which will come into force contemporaneously with this Ordinance.

A BILL

ENTITLED

An Ordinance to amend the Criminal Law as regards certain indecent outrages and assaults. Be it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. This Act may be cited as the Criminal Law Amend- ment Ördinance, 1901.

2. Any male person who, in public or private, commits, or is a party to the commission of, or procures, or attempts to procure the commission by any male person of, any act of gross indecency with another male person, shall be guilty of a misdemeanour, and, being convicted thereof, shall be liable to be imprisoned for any term not exceeding two years, with or without hard labour.

3. It shall be no defence to a charge or indictment for an indecent assault on a young person under the of

age thirteen to prove that he or she consented to the act of indecency.

Objects and Reasons.

Section 2 of this Ordinance extends to this Colony the provisions of section eleven of the English Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1885. When the various sections of Part I of that Act which is headed "Protection of Women and Girls were considered with a view to their being embodied in our local legislation relating to that subject, section eleven which is out of place in Part I of the English Act was omitted.

Section 3 is simply a reproduction of the second section of the English Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1880. It is desirable that both these enactments which have been, for several years, in force in England, should be made applicable to this Colony.

Ordinance.

Objects and Reasons.

The object of this Bill is to place on the local Statute Book those enactments of the Judicature Act, 1873, which were intended to effect a fusion of the two systems of law formerly administered by the English Superior Courts, and also certain enactments of the same Act for the amendment and declaration of the law. It is thought that the passing of a new Code of Civil Procedure affords a favourable opportunity for enacting these valuable pro- visions of law. It is proposed that the Bill when passed shall come into operation concurrently with the new Code of Civil Procedure.

123.-(1.) The plaintiff by his reply, if any, may join issue upon the statement of defence, and each party in his pleading, if any, subsequent to reply may join issue upon the previous pleading.

(2.) Such joinder of issue shall operate as a denial of every material allegation of fact in the pleading upon which issue is joined, but it may except any facts which the party may be willing to admit, and shall then operate as a denial of the facts not so admitted.

124. When a party in any pleading denies an allegation of fact in the previous pleading of the opposite party, he must not do so evasively, but answer the point of sub- stance. Thus, if it is alleged that he received a certain sum of money, it shall not be sufficient to deny that he received that particular amount, but he must deny that he received that sum or any part thereof, or else set out how much he received. And if an allegation is made with divers circumstances, it shall not be sufficient to deny it along with those circumstances.

125. Where a contract, promise, or agreement is alleged in any pleading, a bare denial of the same by the opposite of contract, party shall be construed only as a denial in fact of the express contract, promise, or agreement alleged, or of the matters of fact from which the same may be implied by law, and not as a denial of the legality or sufficiency in law of such contract, promise, or agreement, whether with reference to the Statute of Frauds or otherwise.

126. Where the contents of any document are material, it shall be sufficient in any pleading to state the effect thereof as briefly as possible, without setting out the whole or any part thereof, unless the precise words of the document or any part thereof are material.

127. Where it is material to allege malice, fraudulent intention, knowledge, or other condition of the mind of any person, it shall be sufficient to allege the same as a fact without setting out the circumstances from which the same is to be.inferred.

128. Where it is material to allege notice to any person of any fact, matter, or thing, it shall be sufficient to allege such notice as a fact, unless the form or the precise terms of such notice, or the circumstances from which such notice is to be inferred, is or are material.

;

Mode of 129.-(1.) When any contract or any relation between alleging

any persons is to be implied from a series of letters or con- contract or

it shall be sufficient to allege such contract or relation from letters, as a fact, and to refer generally to such letters, conversa-

tions, or circumstances without setting them out in detail.

(2.) If in any such case the person so pleading desires to rely in the alternative upon more contracts or relations than one as to be implied from such circumstances, he may state the same in the alternative.

131. No technical objection shall be raised to any pleading on the ground of any alleged want of form.

The Court may, at any stage of the proceedings, or amending order to be struck out or amended any matter in any in- of pleading. dorsement or pleading which may be unnecessary or scan- dalous or which may tend to prejudice, embarrass, or delay the fair trial of the action; and may in any such case, if it thinks fit, order the costs of the application to be paid as between solicitor and client.
