THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 6TMп FEBRUARY, 1903.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 56.

The following Report on the Queen's College, for the year 1902, is published.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 6th February, 1903.

F. H. MAY, Colonial Secretary.

REPORT ON THE QUEEN'S COLLEGE, FOR THE YEAR 1902.

No. 7.

QUEEN'S COLLEGE, HONGKONG, 19th January, 1903.

SIR,-I have the honour to present the Annual Report on Queen's College for the year 1902.

2. The total number on the Roll was 1,434, a slightly lower figure than in the previous year.

      This reduction is one of many indications of considerable im- provement in Attendance; for with fewer boys and with seven schoolday's less, there is actually an increase of 15,662 attendances in the course of the year. Again the number on Roll exceeded 1,000 in nine months and 1,100 in four, while the average daily attendance is 990. When it is remembered that in the summer, plague, cholera and dengue fever were prevalent, it must be admitted that a steady attendance under these conditions is highly commendable.

3. The fees were short of $30,000 by only $121. The cost of the College is enhanced by the fact that the fees of Free Scholars are not credited to this Department, though $216 is the annual cost of educating Student Interpreters for the Registrar General's Department, and $180 for the charitable education of children of Public Servants, which does not include the four Free Scholarships granted annually to encourage education in the Government District Schools of Saiyingpun, Wantsai, etc.

4. It is just five years since the services of Mr. J. W. JONES were first loaned to the Supreme Court for twelve months. It was therefore quite as much a matter of congratulation to the College as to Mr. JONES, when in October last the news of his permanent transfer to be Deputy Registrar, as from 7th June, 1901, reached the colony. No surprise can be excited at the decision of the Secretary of State, that in the future Educational Officers are not to hold acting appointments in other Departments. I venture however to express a hope, that this does not mean an absolute negation of the possibility of permanent transfer elsewhere. The experi- ence of the Government in the cases of Messrs. ARTHUR, JONES and WOODCOCK would appear to justify the conclusion that Assistant Masters are capable of performing excellent service elsewhere; and I maintain that the effect of such transfer on Queen's College is a salutary one; there being the stimulus to exertion with view to the recognition of the Government, and the infusion of new blood into the English staff, from time to time.

5. Once again we have at last ten English Masters. Mr. TANNER has been promoted to the Senior Grade. To fill the three vacancies amongst the Junior Assistant Masters, Mr. BIRD was appointed in October, Mr. CROOK arrived a few days ago, and Mr. HOLLIS is shortly expected. In addition to being University men of marked careers (Oxford and Dublin respectively) Messrs. BIRD and CROOK have had the advantage of practical experience as schoolmasters and will doubtless prove valuable acquisitions. Mr. DEALY last May went on leave for the second time in nineteen years' service.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 6TH FEBRUARY, 1903.

  6. The Report of the Education Committee recommends the appointment of an eleventh English Master, which appears necessary, there being now nearly 200 more boys daily receiving instruction than when ten English Masters were deemed sufficient.

  7. Mr. JAMES CHEONG, graduate of Melbourne University, who for more than three years did excellent and successful work as English Assistant Master, resigned at the end of August last on proceeding to Oxford. In April, Mr. WONG MING, 3rd Chinese Assistant, was loaned to the Magistracy for twelve months. In October, Mr. UN KAMWA, 4th Chinese Assistant, a useful and energetic Master, resigned to act as interpreter and translator to a local legal firm. The restitution of the full complement on the English staff will terminate the excessive strain thrown, during the last few years, on the Chinese staff by temporary promotions and appointments; though I cannot withhold from these young men, especially the Acting Pupil Teachers, the well deserved meed of praise for their cheerful energy in the discharge of their difficult duties.

  8. The desire of the Government to promote and encourage greater attention to the study of Chinese amongst natives and English alike, has not been without its effect on this College. Several Chinese Assistants formed themeslves into a class, and at their own cost engaged a Native Teacher chiefly for improvement in style. Mr. BIRD has begun the study of Chinese. Though I do not think that the knowledge of Chinese, written and spoken, should as formerly be obligatory on all masters; there can be no doubt that even a small acquaintance with the language of the boys is desirable to maintain the proper efficiency and discipline of the College.

  9. Messrs. RALPHS, GRANT and TANNER deserve warm congratulations upon the excellent results at the Oxford Local Examinations held last July. Twenty certificates were obtained by Queen's College boys; 3 Senior, 6 Junior and 11 Preliminary. The mark G, next in order to distinction was obtained no less than 16 times chiefly in Arithmetic and History. I am glad to note that Chinese boys are again coming to the fore, both in position and number of passes.

  10. The good results at the Half-yearly Examination (a practice instituted by myself in 1882) led me to anticipate satisfactory improvement at the close of the year, and I feel justified in saying that I have not been disappointed.

  11. Messrs. Ross and Krrro, appointed Independent Examiners of the Upper School, made a separate Report. I would beg leave, on behalf of masters and boys, to express our sense of the kindness and consideration shown by the Examiners.

  12. The examination of the Lower and the Preparatory Schools was conducted by myself, under Standing Orders from the Governing Body. The whole tone of the examination is higher than that of the previous year; the improvement being chiefly attributable to greater regularity in attendance, as reported above. With the exception of the Grammar paper in the three sections of Class IV, there was absolutely none of the provoking practice of inserting silly or irrelevant informa- tion. No further comment upon the Summary and Table below is needed than the statement that the Lower School has distinguished itself by marked general improve- ment; and the Preparatory School, taught by Acting Pupil Teachers, under the charge of a Senior Pupil Teacher, has maintained its usual high-level.

13. Observations on individual subjects :-

Reading. Though few failures occurred, it was rare to be able to assign marks higher than 80%. I make a point of treating most severely the mispronunciation of common words.

Conversation.-As usual, the percentage of passes is low. I applied a

slightly higher standard of intelligence.

Dictation.-Very good, especially the writing.

Arithmetic.-A very marked improvement on the results of recent years. A large number of boys successfully tackled the usual sort of problems. The work was neat, and less crowded into out-of-the-way corners.

Grammar. Very satisfactory, with the exception of one class. The masters of the three sections of Class IV admitted the questions to be fair, if not actually easy, yet the fact remains that the great bulk of the boys failed to get 50% marks. Knowing from personal observa- tion that those masters taught this subject very carefully, I can only conclude that they had been paying more particular attention to other details.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 6TH FEBRUARY, 1903.

Geography.Good. I expected that more boys would have been ac- quainted in Class IV with the draining operations of the Emperor U, and in Class V with the diurnal and annual motions of the earth.

Map-drawing from memory.--Excellent.

The maps of Hongkong, Africa and the 18 provinces of China that obtained over 80% marks were wonderful specimens of handiwork, and feats of memory.

Composition.-Very good indeed, the employment of suitable phrases, not

dictated by me, was very successful and praiseworthy.

Chinese to English.-Satisfactory. More boys made laudable attempts to translate the unseen piece that formed the fifth question in each

paper.

English to Chinese. This subject was, as usual, marked by the Second Master (Mr. A. J. MAY) who found himself able to award a very large proportion of high marks.

14. The following is a complete list of the Scholarships, all locally promoted and maintained without any assistance from the Government:-Morrison Senior and Junior Scholarships each tenable for three years, Stewart Scholarships for one year, Belilios Senior and Junior Scholarships each tenable for two years.

15. The non-Chinese boys past and present, assisted by the friends of the late Mr. W. MACHELL, have raised a small sum to endow a Special Prize in memory of his devoted zeal in behalf of the interests of the Senior non-Chinese Class. In spite of the handsome allowance for Prizes from the Government, we should be poorly off to provide recognition for our sixty scholars deserving of distinction, were it not for the generous beneficence of the public. The following is a list of the present contributors:-The Consul General for Portugal, Messrs. ARCULLI and DORABJEE NOWROJEE; Messrs. CHAN HE-WAN, CHAU PAK-CHEUN, HO FOOK, Ho KOM-TONG, HO TUNG, IP SHIU-KAM, KÓ YIK-KAM, LAU CHÁK-MIN, LEUNG YAN-PO Lo CHEUNG-SHIU, LO TÁT, LUK KING-FO, MOK MAN-CHEUNG, NG KWOK-CHING, SIN TAK-FAN, TSOI LAP-TSZ, U HANG-KAM, WONG KAM-FUK, YING HING-PONG, YING SHIU-PO, the Directors of the Tung Wa Hospital Messrs.

The following Directions and Scale of Fees for Bacteriological Examinations of doubtful cases of Plague and Cholera, at the Government Bacteriological Department, are published.

By Command,

F. H. MAY, Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 20th February, 1903.

THE Bacteriological Examination of doubtful cases of Plague and Cholera, and of material suspected to be infected with the causative agents of these diseases, will be undertaken for the General Public, under the general conditions published in Government Notification No. 644 of 1902.

GENERAL DIRECTIONS AS TO THE METHODS TO BE ADOPTED IN PROCURING SUITABLE SPECIMENS FOR THE DEMONSTRATION OF THE CAUSATIVE AGENTS OF PLAGUE AND CHOLERA.

1.-The greatest care is to be exercised in procuring such material for bacteriological examination. 2.-The strictest antiseptic precautions are to be observed in every case.

3. In forwarding such infective material to the Bacteriological Department, it should be pro- perly protected in such packet which allows of no breakage or infection being conveyed from it to the outside world.

4. Such highly infective material should never be sent by post, but delivered to the Bacteriolo-

gical Laboratory by some intelligent and thoroughly trustworthy messenger.

5. Exact details as to the source of the specimens and the nature of the examination required

should be forwarded to the Government Bacteriologist, at the same time.

6.-It is highly important to mark the material forwarded as "URGENT," as the postponement of

the examination might vitiate an otherwise important result.

PLAGUE.

METHODS TO BE ADOPTED IN THE PREPARATION OF SPECIMENS FOR EXAMINATION.

Pestis Bubonica.

1. The skin immediately over the bubo must be thoroughly disinfected.

2. The needle, which is to be used for aspirating part of the contents of the bubo, must

be sterilised in oil or water.

3. The aspirating needle must be driven well into the bubo, and then considerable suction

power used, in order that as much of the bubonic contents as possible be withdrawn. 4. Where practicable, bacteriological cultures on nutrient media should be made immediately. 5. Several smears of the extracted material should then be made on microscopic glass slides,

fixed by means of heat, and stained at once.

6. Immediately subsequent to the withdrawal of the bubonic contents, the parts should be

thoroughly disinfected and protected.

7. All apparatus used in connection with the operation should be boiled in water 10 minutes,

or otherwise disinfected or destroyed.

Pestis Pneumonica.

1. The greatest care is to be exercised in dealing with the sputum expectorated by indivi-

duals suffering from this disease.

2. The sputum which is forwarded for examination must be absolutely fresh.

3. It must be sent in a sterilised receptacle.

4. No antiseptic is to be added to the sputum previous to its being forwarded for examination.

5. In all cases several microscopic slide preparations ought to be made at the bedside, and

these in addition to the sputum forwarded for examination.

Pestis Septicæmica.

     Such an examination is undertaken in a somewhat similar fashion as already described under "Pestis Bubonica." For fuller information, reference ought to be made to the Bacteriological Exami- nation of Blood as described in Government Notification No. 644 of 1902.

128

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 20TH FEBRUARY, 1903.

The Government Bacteriologist is prepared to undertake the examination of animals-sick or dead-supposed to be suffering from Plague, or having symptoms resembling Plague. In such cases, the animals in question must be forwarded to the Government Public Mortuary.

The General Directions detailed in this notification must be thoroughly attended to.

   All other material supposed to be infected with Plague and supposed to be requiring bacteriologi- cal confirmation, will necessitate such information being conveyed, as soon as possible, to the Govenment Bacteriologist, so that he may take the steps which appear to be necessary.

CHOLERA.

METHODS TO BE ADOPTED IN THE PREPARATION OF SPECIMENS FOR EXAMINATION.

Cholera in Man.

1. All suspicious cases ought to be examined bacteriologically, as many cases of true Asiatic

Cholera cannot be differentiated from those of Cholera Nostras.

2. The examination ought to be requisitioned for immediately suspicion is aroused.

3. Simple microscopic examination of the alvine dejections ought to be made by the attend- ant in charge of the case, in order to satisfy himself that there is sufficient ground for more detailed investigation.

4. If comma-shaped organisms are found in the dejections, the diagnosis of cholera is not complete, and the Bacteriological Department ought to be asked to make a thorough examination. This applies only to those suspected cases occurring either isolated or at the commencement of a possible epidemic.

5. The dejections sent for examination must be absolutely fresh.

6. They must be sent in a sterilised test tube.

7. Not a larger quantity than 20 c. c. of the fluid and flaky dejections may be sent.

8. No antiseptic is to be added to the specimen.

9. In all cases several microscopic slide preparations ought to be made at the bedside from recently evacuated dejecta, and these should accompany the material which is forwarded for examination.

10. The following details in regard to the case ought to accompany each specimen :

(.) Name of patient.

(b.) Address of patient.

(c.) Date and hour at which specimen was evacuated by the patient.

(d.) The approximate amount of dejecta evacuated by patient per hour.

e.) The colour, appearance, consistence, smell and reaction of the dejecta. () Report as to the addition of antiseptics to the dejecta.

Cholera in Water.

When such an examination is required, the Government Bacteriologist is to be informed, so that he may take the necessary steps to have a suitable quantity of water collected for his examination.

DRAINAGE.

Preliminary Explanatory Notes to Bye-Laws.

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 re- medy 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 refuse from cooking and the like; in short, the foul liquid usually known as sewage or sullage-water.

The house-drain must be self-cleansing." The sewage as 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 emanations 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 sew.ge 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.

F. 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 chaunel. (b) The smoothness of its surface. (e) 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.

--

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1903.

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 "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.

6. 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.

II. 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 stoppages, 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 six inches in diameter. A four-inch drain, constructed in the usual manner, is probably somewhat small as a minimum; avla 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. Indeed, 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 better. The use of unnecessarily large house-drains amounts to au 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 escapes, 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 instance. rain-water should be ex- cluded from them as far as possible. Rain-water cannot, however, be wholly excluded from house-drains. Many uncovered surfaces, such as back-yards, receive slops and foul-water in the course of daily use and this must be carried off by the house-drains. A 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 each 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. In providing for the removal of rain-fail. from a given surface, it is to be remembered that it is not sufficient to provide a pipe of ample size to carry off the rain-fall. 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. wilereas the inlets were really at fault.

Rain-water cannot be lookod upon as a legitimate agent for cleansing house-drains from deposit. First y, 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 falls so that this flushing agent fails when most wanted.

3. 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 shews that, under the normal conditions of use, an inclina- tion of one in thirty is desirable to ensure a self-cle using drain: especially when the drain conveys the sewege from a single trap or inlet. An inclination of one in thirty, therefore, should, as a rule. be given to honse-drains, Dr ins laid at much flatter gradients can be made to work perfectly, with e re provided that the flow of sewage is copious. ¿e., sufficient to fill the pipe nearly half full. The designer of house-trains, having no control over their subsequent usage, will do well to give them, in every case, the greatest practic- able fall.

N. The ordinar" "trap" or syphon is not a perfect preventive against the escape of sewage-tained air from house-drains, although it is the only appliance available for the purpose. The wa'er which scals 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 unprovide: w-th any free outlets, a sudden rush of water through one trap will force the air contained in the drain through the other traps or inseal them by drawing off their contents, and open a passage for the escape of sewage-tainted air into the dwelling, or int some confined space in

be its neighbourhood. Consequently, house-drains must lated," or rather provided with vents, to prevent the accumulation of sewage-tained air therein, and to secure the efficiency of the traps. "To effect this thoroughly, the drain must have, at or near its extre-

mities, 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.

These ventilating openingsshould 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 opening should be placed above the roof of the dwelling. This is usually done by carry- ing 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, however, 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 accumulation 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 ven- tilating 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 essentid 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, thongh desirable. it is less necessary and may be omitted without serious danger.

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, on 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, s 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 ventilation by means of a pipe carried up outside and to the top of the building.

Drainage Bye-laws.

1. Any owner or occupier of private premises about to construct, re-construct, 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 Board, 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 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 proposed 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, 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 and Buildings 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 thereof by the sanitary surveyor shall have been previously obtained by him, and in the case of such approval the plan shall be filed in the office of the sanitary surveyor.

NOTE. The approval of plans by the sanitary surveyor under this bye-law certifies simply to the fact that the plans are in accordance with the Public Health and Buildings Ordinance and with the bye-laws made thereunder, but signifies to approval of the sufficiency or otherwise of the plan and throws no responsibility on

the Board.

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.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1903.

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 or yellow earth and one part of lime thoroughly well mixed and well rammed into place.

II. 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. 37, 38, 39 and 40 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 th remaining length of 70 feet with a fall of 1 in 46.66, than give an uniform fall throughout.

It is clear that an obstruction at 4 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.

16. Whenever the gradient of any portion of a drain is less than one in thirty, the 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 generady, house holders will do well to provide, at each change of direction, a manhole, giving access to the drain. For this purpose the manhole 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 But such manhole manhole may be narrowed to 1 foot 6 inches by 1 foot 6 inches. should not be found in cook-houses or in places 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 domestic building except when any other mode of construction is impractic- able. Any drain passing under a building shall be of cast iron coated inside with Dr. Angus Smith's patent composition or other material approved of by the Board and all such pipes shall be of a quality to be approved by the Board and the joints shall be properly caulked and run with lead, and (unless the written permission of the Board has first been obtained to lay it otherwise) shall 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 D trap, and all traps connected with any private drains shall be properly jointed 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 flushing.

25. Every main house-drain shall be ventilated at its upper end by carrying up an iron ventilating pipe of a diameter of not less than four inches to a height of not less than three feet above the eaves of the building, and clear of all windows, skylights or other openings. The joints of all such pipes shall be properly caulked and run with lead.

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 a ventilating pipe at their upper end unless such drains are laid, partly or wholly, under a building; but, if this be omitted, they shall be provided 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. Rain-water pipes and waste-pipes from baths, sinks and other similar appliances on the upper floors of buildings shall be of cast iron socketted pipes jointed with cement, or wrought iron pipes, with screwed joints, coated with bituminous composition, or galvanised, or of well glazed stoneware socketted pipes, or other approved ma- terials, securely fixed outside the wall, by means of wrought iron bands fitted round the pipe, or in the case of iron pipes by means of ears, made fast with wrought iron spikes not less than four inches long, and provided, at each point of connection, with a suitable head, and at their lower extremity with a bend, shoe or pedestal pipe and every opening in the wall of a building for the discharge of sullage water shall be provided with a fixed grating to the satisfaction of the Board.

Provided that in the case of rain-water pipes and waste-pipes abut- ting on any street, cast or wrought iron pipes only shall be used, properly jointed as above described, (unless permission has been granted by the Board to use pipes of other material), and wherever

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1903.

practicable rain-water pipes shall be carried under the foot-path and discharge into the side channel. All joints of stoneware pipes shall be made in the manner provided by No. 5 of these bye-laws.

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

29. 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.

30. 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.

NOTE.--Rain-water pipes terminate at the eaves of the house a point not high enough above windows to be a safe ventilating cutlet.

31. 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 sanitary surveyor 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, in the case of villages, at any village Police Station between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

or,

32. Before any drain is covered in, it shall be inspected and tested by the sanitary surveyor to ascertain whether it is water and air-tight; and no drain that fails in this respect shall be passed. A fine of ten dollars shall be paid for every inspection after the first if the Board is satisfied that such further inspection has been necessitated by the negligence of the contractor or by bad workmanship or the use of improper materials. After a drain has been passed, the earth shall be carefully filled in, above and around the drain, and thoroughly rammed 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.

33. The floors of cook-houses, 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. Every such opening in the wall shall be provided with a fixed grating, at its upper end, to the satisfaction of the Board.

34. All surfaces of back-yards and paved areas of premises wher- ever practicable shall have a fall, towards the trap or inlet of the drain, of not less than one in forty and such inlet shall be placed as far from the walls as practicable.

35. 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.

36. 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.

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

38. 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.

39. 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.

40. 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.

41. All drains, or drainage works, shall be built and carried out in all respects in accordance with the provisions of the Public Health and Buildings Ordinance, and of these bye-laws and of any that may be made hereafter, and if no written notice as provided by No. 1 of these bye-laws shall have been given to the Board by any owner or occupier about to construct, re-construct, alter or amend any drain on his premises, and if by such default the sanitary surveyor shall have had no opportunity of inspecting and approving or disap- proving of any such drain actually built and already covered in, it shall be lawful for the Board on discovering the existence of such

237

238

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1903.

drain or drainage works to call upon the owner or occupier to open and uncover the same for the purpose of inspection, and should such drain or works prove upon inspection to be defective either in respect of design, workmanship or materials they shall be deemed a nuisance and dealt with as such. Any owner or occupier who constructs, re- constructs, alters or amends any drain without such written notice as aforesaid, shall be deemed to have contravened these bye-laws.

42. 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, to make them comply with the provisions of this Ordinance 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 satisfac- tion of the Board.

43. Whenever any private house drain is about to be constructed or re-constructed the Board shall have power to require the provi- sion 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.

ENTRY AND INSPECTION OF BUILDINGS.

1. The secretary of the Board shall furnish the sanitary inspectors with general authority in writing, in English and Chinese, to enter, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. and inspect, upon reasonable notice to the occupiers or owners, any building and curtilage in their respective districts for the purpose of acertaining the sanitary condi- tion, cleanliness and good order thereof or of any part thereof, and of any partitions, mezzanine floors, stories and cocklofts therein, or of the condition of any drains therein or in connection therewith. If it shall be requisite for the purpose of ascertaining the sanitary condi- tion of any domestic building or curtilage, to open the ground surface of any part thereof any sanitary inspector in possession of authority in writing signed by the secretary or by the medical officer of health after giving not less than forty-eight hours' notice in writing signed by either of the aforesaid officers to the occupier or owner of such domestic building or curtilage of his intention to enter the same for the purpose of opening up the ground surface thereof, may so enter, with such assistants as may be necessary, and open the ground sur- face of any such premises in any place or places he may deem fit, doing as little damage as may be. Should the material which has been used for covering such ground surface and the nature and thickness thereof, be found satisfactory and in accordance with law, such ground surface shall be reinstated and made good by the said Board at the public expense.

2. The secretary shall, upon the requisition of the medical officer of health authorise in writing, in English and Chinese, one or more of the Board's officers to enter any domestic building at any hour between 6 p.m. and midnight for the purpose of ascertaining whether such building or any part thereof is in an overcrowded condition.

3. No officer of the Board shall, between the hours of mid- night and 8 o'clock the following morning, enter any domestic building for the purpose of ascertaining whether such building or any part thereof is in an overcrowded condition, without the written permission, in English and Chinese, of the President of the Board.

2. All cattle imported into the Colony by land shall be driven direct to the cattle market at the village of Yaumáti, and their arrival reported forthwith at the Yaumáti Police Station. The officer in charge of such Station shall forthwith report every such arrival to the colonial veterinary surgeon together with such other particulars as may be ascertainable concerning such animals.

Cattle, swine, sheep or goats brought into the City of Victoria for sale or slaughter shall be at once conveyed or driven to the Govern- ment depôts at Kennedy Town.

3. All cattle, swine, sheep and goats imported into the Colony shall be forthwith inspected and in the case of cattle and sheep duly marked by the colonial veterinary surgeon and any such animal which he finds to be diseased or which he may suspect to be suffering from disease shall be placed in segregation and under observation at the depôts set apart for the purpose at Kennedy Town and Yaumáti.

4. The colonial veterinary surgeon shall in every instance, with all practicable speed, report to the Board the whole of the ascertain able particulars concerning the animals he places in segregation.

5. The owner of each animal placed in segregation shall pay ten cents per day for the keep of such animal until it is either passed as being free from disease or destroyed.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 27TH FEBRUARY, 1903.

6. If it appears to the colonial veterinary surgeon that an animal placed in segregation is suffering from a dangerously infectious disease, the Board may cause such animal to be forthwith slaughtered and the carcase thereof to be disposed of in such manner as the Board may deem fit.

12. Where it appears to the colonial veterinary surgeon that disease exists or has within 56 days existed in any place where animals are kept, the Board may declare such place to be infected and take such steps to prevent the spread of disease as the Board may deem fit. 13. When a place has been declared to be infected a placard shall be posted there to that effect and the removal therefrom, without the sanction of the Board, of any animal, carcase, fodder, litter, utensil or other thing therein is prohibited, and any persons residing upon or visiting such infected premises may be detained thereon by any officer of the Board, pending the disinfection of such persons and of their clothing to the satisfaction of the Board.

14. Every person having in his premises or under his charge an animal affected with infectious disease shall, with all practicable speed, report the same to the officer in charge of the nearest Police Station 15. The Police shall forthwith report to the colonial veterinary surgeon all cases of animal disease coming under their notice.
