(c.) If the Ship carries more than one Mate, with at least the

First and Second Mates duly certificated.

Sub-section 4 of the same Ordinance provides that the Master of any British Ship, or of any Colonial Ship, or of any Foreign Ship holding a Passenger Certificate under section 10, leaving or attempting to leave any Port of the Colony without having on board and entered on the register and Articles of Agreement officers possessing the certificates required by this section, shall be liable to a penalty not exceeding Five Hundred Dollars.

Sub-section 5 provides that every person who, having been

engaged any of the above mentioned capacities in any such ship, goes to sea in that capacity without being at the time entitled to, and possessed of, such certificate as is required by this section, and every person who employs any person in any of the above named capacities in such ship without ascertaining that he is at the time entitled to, or possessed of, such certificate, shall, for each such offence, be liable to a penalty not exceeding Two Hundred and Fifty Dollars.

2. Certificates of Competency will be granted to those persons who pass the requisite examination, and otherwise comply with the requisite conditions. For this purpose examiners have been appointed.

3. The examinations will commence on such a day and at such an hour as may be appointed by the Harbour Master.

4. Candidates for examination must make their applications upon for examin- the appropriate form, which must be filled in at the Harbour Office, and the Candidates' testimonials and discharges must be lodged with the Harbour Master.

Nature of service determined by actual

position on board ship. B/T Reg.

1909, Sec. 6.

The examiner should be particularly careful to ascertain that there are no gaps in the Candidate's service which are not properly accounted for, before he is allowed up for examination.

5. Sea service cannot be regarded as qualifying for examination for certificates of competency unless it can be verified by reference to the articles of the ship on which it was performed, e.g., service claimed by testimonial or otherwise to have been as mate when the actual rating as shown by articles was only that of boatswain or other petty officer will not be accepted where officer's service is required. Where service as first (or second) mate is required to qualify for examination the candidate must actually have held the executive position next (or next but one) to the master.

Candidates who represent themselves as having served in higher capacity than that actually held in the ship render themselves liable to prosecution under section 104 of the Merchant Shipping Aet, 1894. (See paragraph 7.)

In this connection examiners should remember that it is a common practice for officers to be rated on ships' articles as "second mate although in reality they were only third or fourth mates and acted in one of those positions on board ship.

In every case where a candidate for a master's certificate of competency claims service as second mate, he should be requested to make a declaration in Divn. H of the Form Exn. 2, to the effect that during his service as second mate he had only one officer over him, or if more than one, that a third and fourth mate were also carried.

If the service claimed is as "auxiliary second mate" the candidate should be required to state the number of officers serving in a junior capacity.

A candidate with first mate's service should make a declaration that he was the senior officer under the master, or, if not, he must comply with the requirements of para. 82, as it has been found that in some cases the second mate has been signed on the articles as first mate, the proper first mate being called chief officer simply for ex- amination purposes.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 12, 1910. 65

It must be clearly understood that the amount of service laid down in the Regulations for each grade of certificate of competency is the absolute minimum that can be accepted, and unless a candidate can show the full amount he must in no case be allowed up for examination.

6. Should any doubt exist as to the age of a Candidate, he will be Ag required to produce a certificate of birth.

Candidates who have neglected to join their vessels after having Penalty for signed Articles, or who have deserted their vessels after having joined, misconduct or who have been found guilty of gross misconduct on board, will be required to produce satisfactory proofs of two years' subsequent service and good conduct at sea, unless the Harbour Master, after having in- vestigated the matter, should see fit to reduce the time.

See. 11. incompetent to discharge the ordinary duties of a mate or master at sca he should not allow the candidate to complete his examination and should return his examination fee; but every case in which this action is taken must be reported to the Board of Trade.

If the candidate subsequently produces a medical certificate to the effect that his hearing, speech, or physical or mental condition has improved or is normal, the Board will take into consideration the ques- tion of allowing the candidate to sit again for examination.

12. If, after a Candidate has passed the examination it is discovered Service on further investigation that his services are insufficient to entitle him to receive a Certificate of the grade for which he has passed, the Certificate will not be granted to him, but if the Harbour Master is satisfied that the error in the calculation of the Candidate's services did not occur through any fault or wilful misrepresentation on his part, he may be granted a Certificate of such lower grade as his service entitles him to.

The superior Certificate will not be granted until the Candidate has performed the amount of service in which he was deficient, and has been re-examined in all the subjects, unless the Harbour Master sees fit to dispense with the re-examination.

13. In all cases of failure the Candidate must be examined anew, E If a Candidate fails in Seamanship he will not be re-examined until 1 after a lapse of six months. Whether the whole or part of this period must be served at sea must depend upon the subjects in Seamanship in which the Candidate failed, but the amount of further sea service to he required will be left to the discretion of the examiner.

13. Candidates for examination, in making their application on form Exn. 2 will be required to pay the examination fee before any step is taken in the way of inquiring into their services or testing their qualifications. If the Candidate is found not to be qualified the fee will

be returned.

19. The fee for examination must be paid to the Officer deputed for that purpose by the Harbour Master, in the Harbour Office. If a Candidate offers a gratuity to any Officer of the Department, he will be regarded as having committed an act of misconduct, and will be rejected, and not allowed to be again examined for twelve months, either at the Port where the offence was committed, or at any other Port.

20. If a Candidate fails to pass the examination, no part of the fee will be returned to him.

Note 1.---No abatement will be made to the fee charged to a Candidate consequence of his possessing a Certificate of a lower grade.

Note 2.--The same fee will be charged, after failure, on each occa- sion a Candidate presents himself for re-examination.

22.--(1) Every Candidate for a Certificate of Competency of any grade will be required to produce a Certificate from the St. John d. Sec. 26. Ambulance Association, the St. Andrew's Ambulance Association or the London County Council to the effect that he has passed an examina- tion in First Aid to the Injured.

(2.) The Certificate must be an adult Certificate, L., obtained by the Candidate when sixteen years of age or more, and the examination for it must have been passed not more than three years before the date of the examination for the Certificate of Competency.

(3.) If a Candidate does not possess such a Certificate of proficiency in First Aid he should apply some time before he wishes to sit for examination for a Certificate as Master or Mate to the local secretary of the St. John or St. Andrew's Ambulance Association, who will inform him of the available facilities for the instruction and examina- tion of Candidates in First Aid. A list of the names and addresses of the local secretaries of the Associations is given in Appendix C, page 60 in BT Regulations.

(4.) Besides the courses of instruction which are provided on shore at the ports in the United Kingdom, at which examinations for Certificates as Master and Mate are held, courses of instruction given by qualified surgeons on board merchant vessels will be accepted by the St. John Ambulance Association as qualifying the Candidate for examination for their Certificate of proficiency in First Aid, provided the surgeon certifies that he has followed the syllabus of instruction laid down by the Association.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRURAY 12, 1910.

(5.) The St. Andrew's Ambulance Association will also accept instruction by a ship's surgeon on board ship as qualifying a Candidate for examination for their Certificate of proficiency in First Aid, provided their syllabus is followed. In this case the Candidate must previously have enrolled and obtained an attendance card by applying to the local secretary of the Association, or to the head office at 176, West Regent Street, Glasgow.

(6.) It will not be necessary for the Candidate for a Certificate as Master or Mate in all cases to produce the formal Certificate of pro- ficiency in First Aid issued by the Associations. In order to prevent delay in proceeding with the examination for the Certificate as Master or Mate and in the issue of the Certificate to successful Candidates, the special Mercantile Marine linen Certificate issued by the St. John Ambulance Association and duly signed by the Lecturer, the Surgeon Examiner and the Association's local representative, or, in Scotland, a certificate signed by the Local Examiner of the St. Andrew's Ambulance Association, to the effect that the Candidate has passed the examination for a Certificate of proficiency, may be accepted as showing that the Candidate possesses the required knowledge of First Aid.

Sight Tests.

23. Every Candidate for a Certificate of Competency of any grade Sight Tests. must pass the three sight tests before he can proceed to the examination B/T Reg. in Navigation and Seamanship.

(1.) The sight tests are open to all persons serving or intending to serve in the Mercantile Marine, and all such persons are recommended to take the earliest opportunity of ascertaining by means of these tests whether their vision is such as to qualify them for service in that profession.

(2.) The three tests are :--

(a.) Form vision test.

(b.) Colour vision test.

(c.) Colour ignorance test.

No Candidate will be examined in the colour vision test until he has passed the form vision test, or in the colour ignorance test until he has passed the colour vision test.

This rule must be observed whether the Candidate has or has not on any previous occasion passed the sight tests.

(3.) Any person serving or intending to serve in the Mercantile Marine, if desirous of undergoing the form vision, colour vision, and colour ignorance tests only, must make application to the Harbour Master, and pay a fee of Fifty Cents.

This fee will be payable on each occasion upon which a Candidate is examined in form vision and colour tests only.

(4.) Candidates who fail to pass the form vision test or the colour ignorance test can be re-examined at intervals of three months, but Candidates who fail to pass the colour vision test cannot be re-examined. It is open, however, to any Candidate who has failed to pass the colour vision test to appeal to the Board of Trade, who may, if they think fit, remit the case to a special examiner or body of examiners for final decision.

(5.) The special examinations will be held in London only.

(6.) When a Candidate fails to pass the colour vision test, the examiner will point out to him the conditions under which he can appeal. Appeals are to be made through the examiner, and forwarded to the Board of Trade with the examiner's remarks.

(7.) The fee paid for examination for a Certificate of Competency includes the fee of fifty cents for examination in form vision, colour vision, and colour ignorance, and if the Candidate fails to pass these tests, this fee will, with the exception of fifty cents, be returned to him. (8.) Only examiners who have themselves passed the colour vision test are to undertake these examinations.

(9.) Whenever the holder of a Certificate of Competency fails to pass any one of the three tests, there is reason to believe that he is from incompetency unfit to discharge his duties, and in the public interest the Board of Trade may cause an enquiry to be held by a Court, having jurisdiction to cancel or suspend such Certificate; but in the alternative, the Board of Trade may accept the voluntary surrender of the Certificate until such time as the Candidate succeeds in passing the test in which he failed.

Form Vision.

24. The Board of Trade have decided that on and after January Ibid. Sec. 28. 1st, 1914, the standard of form vision in the sight tests shall be raised to that specified in Appendix O on page 122, BT Regulations, subject to the condition that Candidates who before the above date shall have obtained any Certificate of Competency as Master or Mate (foreign-going or home trade), shall have the option of undergoing the present tests and shall not, in order to obtain Certificates of higher grades, be required to pass the more severe test.

Semaphore

and Morse

Signalling.

From November 1st, 1909, it will be possible for any person serving or intending to serve in the Mercantile Marine to be examined with reference to the higher standard and if he passes, he may receive a Certificate to that effect, or if he holds a Certificate of Competency, the fact of his having passed the higher standard may be endorsed upon it.

The examiners should in all cases point out to boys and others coming up for the Sight Tests that unless they are in possession of a Certificate of Competency by the 1st January, 1914, they will after that date be required to pass the new standard of Form Vision as laid down in Appendix 0, whether they are coming up for a Certificate of Competency or for examination in the Sight Tests only.

Signalling.

25. It shall be open to any officer holding or candidate for a Certificate of Competency as Master or Mate to undergo an examination Ibid. Sec. 86. in practical proficiency in the Semaphore and Morse systems of signalling, And should the candidate pass this examination, the fact, with the date and place of passing shall be recorded on his Certificate of Competency. The standard of efficiency in signalling required from Candidates for the voluntary examination in signalling after 1st July, 1908, will be as follows:-

BT Cirenlai 497. May 1894.

by

Candidates must be capable of sending and reading signals made

(1.) Semaphore at a rate of 10 words

     per minute. (2.) Morse, flashing and flag-waving, at a rate of 6 words per minute (the average length of a word to be calculated at 5 letters).

The Semaphore test will be a prose message of about 30 words. The Morse, flashing and flag-waving, test will be a test message (see the British Signal Manual), followed by a prose message of about 30 words.

The Candidate must attain a degree of accuracy of at least 90 per cent. in reading both Semaphore and Morse signals.

Each Candidate will be orally examined as to his knowledge of the International Signal Book and the British Signal Manual. With regard to the latter special attention will be paid to the prescribed procedure of signalling, both by day and night, between H.M. ships and the Mercantile

Marine.

A Signalling Certificate issued by a recognised Naval Signalling School will be accepted in lieu of this examination.

CHAPTER III.

Rules for Estimating Sea Service.

72. In these Regulations sea service is reckoned from the com- mencement to the termination of the voyage. The certificates of discharge for service in the foreign trade will generally be accepted as proof of sea service, but certificates of discharge for service in the home or coasting trade will require additional verification. Superintendents and examiners will be careful to see that these discharges have not been in any way tampered with, and will report any suspicious cases to the Registrar-General of Seamen.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 12, 1910. 79

73. For Foreign-going Certificates the term "sea service" means, Sea service unless otherwise stated, service performed in foreign-going vessels.

for Foreign- going Certi- ficates. Ibid. See. 105.

Ibid. Sec.

74. For River Steamer Certificates service in the home or coasting Service in trade is regarded as equivalent to service in the foreign trade, but for Home Trade, Foreign-going Certificates it is regarded as only equivalent to two-thirds 106. of the time served in foreign trade.

75. By the word "Certificate" is meant a Certificate of Competency Certificate, granted by the Board of Trade under the Merchant Shipping Act or by meaning of. the Government of a British Possession under an Order in Council issued in pursuance of the Merchant Shipping Act.

A list of the Colonial Certificates referred to will be found in Appendix C. They are of the same force as the corresponding Certificates granted by the Board of Trade.

These facts may possibly be proved by the production of satisfactory certificates from the Masters with whom the applicants have served; but such service will only be accepted as equivalent to two-thirds of the time served as ordinary deck hand.

When the errors are not too numerous, the in- correct problems may be returned to the Candidate for correction, but in no case should the errors be pointed out by the examiner, neither should any marks be made which would indicate how far or to what extent the work is incorrect. The incorrect problems are not to be re- turned to the Candidate for correction a second time, and should more than one of the problems-

115. At those ports where, from the large number of Candidates, it may sometimes be found impossible to look over the work on the day of examination during the office hours, an hour in the morning of the following day may be allotted for the purpose of correcting the pro- blems, but in no case should a Candidate have his problem returned to him for correction after he has made the second attempt.

116. The examination will commence with not less than a quarter of an hour's dictation to test handwriting and spelling. This, however, is only to be given to those Candidates who present themselves for examination for the first time for a Foreign-going Certificate. The spelling must be reasonably and fairly good, and the writing clear and legible. The spelling and writing of all Candidates must be satisfactory, and in cases where there is any doubt about the ability of a Candidate to spell correctly he will be specially tested by dictation.

117. The paper of definitions is only for those Candidates who pre- sent themselves for examination for the first time for a Foreign-going Certificate. In using this paper, the examiner will place a mark against the questions which he wishes to be answered, not less than ten questions being so selected. The Candidate will then write against the questions so marked his definition of the terms in a clear and legible hand, so as to prevent the possibility of any letter being mistaken, and also draw a rough sketch or diagram opposite to each of the questions to which he has given written answers, in further illustration of its meaning. Virâ voce questions will be asked on the answers given.

118. In the questions on the Deviation of the Compass the examiner will mark at least twelve of the questions, including the problems. The selected questions will be varied frequently, and no two Candidates will have precisely the same questions. The Candidate will be furnished with sheets of the blank ruled paper which is supplied for the purpose, with instructions that he is to write only on one side of the paper, and to answer in a clear and legible hand each of the questions against which a mark is placed, and to commence each answer by writing down the number of the question to which it relates in the margin. In answer- ing Question 39 on the tentative method of compass adjustment, the Candidate will be tested by Beall's Compass Deviascope, and it will not therefore be necessary for him to give the written answer and sketches.

119. The examination on the barometer, thermometer, and hydro- meter, prevailing winds and currents of the globe, trade routes, and tides, will for the present be conducted orally, and the questions asked by the examiner, will be constantly varied. Candidates will be required to have a fair and intelligent knowledge of the subjects.

120. Particular attention should be paid to the adjustments of the sextant, the examination in which subject will be conducted orally and practically. Every Candidate will be examined practically as to his knowledge of the adjustments and the use of the various screws; he must be able to read correctly off the arc, a supposed index error being given by the examiner as additive, as well as reading on the arc in the usual way; he must also be able to find the index error both by the horizon and by the sun.

121. Candidates will find it more convenient, both during the exam- ination and at sea, to correct the declination and other elements from the Nautical Almanac by the hourly differences given in that work; they will thereby render themselves independent of any proportional or logarithmic table for that

purpose.

122. The corrections by inspection of tables given in some of the works on Navigation, e.g., Tables IX., XI., and XXI. in Norie's Epitome, will not be allowed; every correction must appear on the papers of the Candidates.

123. All outstanding or minor corrections should appear in the margin of each problem paper and on the chart papers, and the papers of the Candidate will not be considered complete without these correc-

tions.

124. Examiners should bear in mind that the problems to be solved are required as tests, and for the purposes of an examination, and not for sea-going or practical purposes alone.

The questions, which will be based on the papers set, will be such that the examiner may satisfy himself that the Candidate possesses a real knowledge of what he has written.

135. It is anticipated that few Candidates will require the whole of the time allowed for completing the examination in navigation, but ample time has been given, so that Candidates may perform their work in a careful, clear, and legible manner, and to the entire satisfaction of the examiners.

136. Candidates, after finishing the problems required in the various grades on the first day of examination, should proceed, until the end of that day, with such subject as the definitions, chart, questions relating to cyclones, and compass deviation.

137. The Summer problem (Exn. 6 c.) must on no account be given out to any of the Candidates on the first day of the examination, but should form the commencement of the Candidates' work on the second day. On completion of this problem the Candidatos for Masters' Certificates should proceed with the problems (a.), (b.), (c.) of the syllabus for that grade.

138. Degree of precision required in the solution of the problems :-

(a.) Candidates are expected to work out their answers to all problems where the answer required is a latitude, longitude or distance within 1 of position from a correct result; in finding the ship's position by Sumner's method a margin of 2 will be allowed.

(b.) In such problems as the "Amplitude" and "Alt-Azi- muth", where the bearing, deviations, &c., only are required, a margin of 3 or 4 from a correct result will be sufficiently accurate.

(c.) Candidates for Ordinary Certificates are not required to correct for second differences in taking out the quantities from the Nautical Almanac.

(d.) In solving the Time Azimuth problems an answer not exceeding half a degree from the exact result will be sufficiently near. But in all cases the actual latitude, declination, and time used, together with the exact bearing from the North or South as given in the tables, must be clearly shown by the Candidate on his

papers.

(e.) In computing the time at which a given star will be on the observer's meridian, and the name of the stars near the meridian (sections (b.) and (e.) of paragraph 36), an approximation only is required, and it will be sufficiently precise if the Candidate works throughout with the nearest minute of time. In computing the approximate meridian altitude of a star (section g.) working throughout with the nearest minute of arc will also be sufficiently close.

(f.) In interpolating for the correct deviation to be applied in solving the chart question, it will usually be sufficient if the Candidate works throughout with the nearest degree of deviation taken from the deviation card; and even in cases where the deviations may vary but little, the nearest half degree used throughout will be sufficiently precise. It is not necessary that the Candidate should waste his time in solving the course to odd minutes, as is sometimes done.

(y.) In calculating the correction to apply to soundings the Candidate is not required to work to the exact inch, as is sometimes done. It will be sufficient if he brings his answer within half a foot or so of a precise result.

***

N

It must be clearly understood in reading the foregoing instructions as to the precision required, that they only apply when the work of the Candidate is correct in principle.

139. A Candidate will not be allowed to undergo examination didate to be twice in the same week, unless, under very special and urgent

circumstances the Harbour Master should see fit to relax this rule.

As far as practicable, unless the Building Authority shall otherwise direct, the external face of the base of the piers or columns shall align with the face of the kerb of the side walk

2. Any such Verandah shall not be less than 12 feet high measured from the top of the kerb-stone or, if there is no kerb-stone, from the level of the centre of the street to the underside of the bressummers or lintels, or, if arches are used, to the soffit of the archways in the centre of the opening of the archway.

3. Any Balcony projected over any street shall have a clear height underneath every part thereof of at least 12 feet measured from the top of the kerb-stone or, if there is no kerb-stone, from the level of the centre of such street.

4. Any such Verandah, Balcony, or part thereof, projected over any street from any storey higher than the ground storey of any building, shall not be less than eleven feet high. Such height shall be measured from the floor of the Verandah, or Ealcony, to the underside of the bressummers or lintels, or, if arches are used, to the soffits in the centres of the openings of the archways.

5. The ends of all such Verandahs or Balconies, which do not abut on any Verandah or Balcony existing at the date of their construction, shall be left open and shall be finished in all respects in a similar manner to the front elevation thereof.

6. Special plans and drawings of any such Verandah or Balcony shall be submitted to the Building Authority and shall be on tracing cloth, and such plans and drawings shall be drawn to a scale of not less than one-tenth of an inch to the foot, and the details of all brackets, mouldings, caps, cornices, balustrades, and similar parts of the proposed struc- ture, shall be drawn to an uniform scale of 1 inch to the foot. Such plans and drawings shall clearly show the lines and levels of existing kerbs and any proposed alterations to such lines or levels, figured dimensions being given of such proposed alterations.

Clerk of Councils.

COUNCIL CHAMBER,

9th February, 1910.

In these Regulations :-

Schedule M.

Drainage Regulations.

"Drain" means any drain of and used for the drainage of one building only, or premises within the same curtilage, and made merely for the purpose of communicating therefrom with a cesspool or other like receptacle for drainage, or with a sewer into which the drainage of two or more buildings or premises occupied by different persons is conveyed, and "Main Drain" means the whole of such drain excluding any branches thereof.

"Sewer" includes sewers and drains of every description except drains to which the word drain interpreted as aforesaid applies.

1. Any owner or occupier of private premises about to construct, re-construct, alter or amend any drain shall give the notice and forward the plans required by sections 222 and 223 of the Public Health and Buildings Ordinances, 1903-1909. Such plans must show the whole of the drainage works proposed to be carried out, the diameter of the pipes, their gradient and their connection to the main drain, sewer, channel or nullah, and also the levels and sizes of any existing drains crossed by or adjacent to such new drains. Copies of Schedule K in English and Chinese may be obtained gratis on applica- tion at the office of the Building Authority, or, in the case of the villages, at any village Police Station between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

>

Provided that when drainage works are being carried out in conjunction with other works it shall only be necessary to forward one such form of Schedule K which must however contain particulars of the whole of the works including such drainage works.

NOTE. The approval of plans by the Building Authority under these regulations certifies simply to the fact that the plans are in accordance with the Public Health and Buildings Ordinances and with the regula- tions made thereunder, but signifies no approval of the sufficiency or otherwise of the plan and throws no responsibility on the Building Authority.

2. 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 pre- cautions as may be necessary for securing the safety of the public and the protection of adjoining properties.

3. Covered drains and sewers shall be made of impervious materials to be approved by the Building Authority with smooth internal surfaces, such as well glazed earthen-ware pipes, or cast-iron pipes protected against rust or corrosion by suitable asphaltic coating, and shall be so constructed as to be watertight and air-tight. In jointing pipes with cement, tarred-hemp shall be caulked into the joints 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 or sewer shall be carefully removed.

4. All drains and sewers shall be laid so as to have a firm bed throughout their length. Where the bottom of a trench is in rock or similar hard substance the pipes shall be firmly bedded in suitable selected material free from large stones and well rammed into place. Where such drains or sewers are laid under a wall they shall be protected by means of a relieving arch.

5. 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.

sewer

6. That portion of the drain of any building which is immediately connected with any sewer shall (unless specially exempted by the Building Authority) be provided with a suitable and efficient intercepting trap at a point situate on the ground of the owner of the drain as distant as may be practicable from such building and as near as may be practicable to the point at which such drain is connected with such Adequate means of access shall be provided to every drain by a manhole or disconnecting chamber or other means of access to be approved by the Building Authority for the purpose of cleansing the drain. All manholes and disconnecting chambers shall be constructed of brickwork at least 9" in thickness built in cement mortar so as to be watertight up to the level of adjacent ground and shall be fitted with manhole covers and frames to be approved by the Building Authority. If placed within a building such covers shall be air-tight.

7. All covered drains and sewers shall be laid in straight lines and regular gradients between the points at which any change of direction occurs, and all changes of direction shall be made by means of properly curved pipes or by half channels in manholes.

8. Concrete for encasing drains or sewers shall be composed of four parts of good sound clean stone, broken to pass through a one inch ring, two parts of red or yellow earth and one part of lime thoroughly well mixed and well rammed into place or of such other materials and in such proportions as the Building Authority may approve.

9. Cement mortar for the jointing of pipes or any other work shall be mixed in the proportions of not more than three parts of clean sharp sand to one part of good Port- land cement and used fresh.

10. No covered drain or sewer shall be less than four inches in clear internal diameter, but the Building Authority may require any covered drain or sewer to be constructed of a larger diameter.

11. Subject to the limitation mentioned in the preceding regulation, no drain or sewer shall be larger than is necessary in the opinion of the Building Authority to carry off the sewage of the premises drained or the sewage with the rain-water, which, under conditions hereinafter specified in Nos. 33, 34 and 35 of these regulations, shall be admitted to the drain.

12. Every drain or sewer 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-

13.

(a) That if the available fall exceeds one in thirty the part of the drain or sewer, 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 public sewer.

(b) That if the excavation, necessary to obtain the maximum available fall, is likely in the opinion of the Building Authority to endanger the stability of the adjoining or neighbouring property, the gradient may be modified to such extent as the Building Authority may approve.

Whenever the available fall for a covered drain or sewer is less than one in thirty the Building Authority may require the gradient of the drain or sewer to be varied by increasing such gradient in the upper portion of such drain or sewer and by reducing it in the remaining portions.

14. Whenever the gradient of any portion of a covered drain or sewer is less than one in thirty, the Building Authority may require an automatic flush tank or any other suitable contrivance for attaining an effective flush to be provided to his satisfaction.

15. No drain or sewer shall be so constructed as to pass under any domestic building except when any other mode of construction is impracticable. Any drain or sewer passing under a building shall be of cast-iron pipes coated inside with Dr. Angus Smith's patent composition, or of other material approved of by the Building Authority and all such pipes shall be of a quality to be approved by the Building Authority and the joints shall be properly caulked and run with lead, and (unless the written permission of the Building Authority has first been obtained to lay the drain or sewer otherwise) shall be laid in one straight line for the whole distance beneath such building, and shall be imbedded and encased through- out its entire length in four inches of concrete as specified in regulation 8.

16. Whenever a covered drain or sewer traverses soft or yielding ground, or where water make its appearance in the trench, the drain or sewer shall be surrounded throughout its entire length with four inches of concrete as specified in regulation 8.

may

17. No drain or sewer shall be constructed in such manner as to allow any inlet to such drain or sewer to be placed inside any roofed building, (except such inlet as may be necessary from the apparatus of any water-closet or urinal) :

Provided that if in the opinion of the Building Authority it is impracticable to comply with this regulation in respect of any premises without encroaching on Crown land the Building Authority shall, on payment by the owner of such premises of a fee of $8, construct an inlet on Crown land to receive the drainage of such premises and connect such inlet with a sewer. The cost of cleansing and maintaining such inlet shall there- after be borne by the owner for the time being of the said premises and may be recovered by the Building Authority from such owner by an action in the Supreme Court in its Summary Jurisdiction.

Every covered main drain or sewer carrying sewage or sullage water shall be ven- tilated at its upper end by carrying up in the open air 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 this or of any of the immediately adjoining buildings, and clear of all windows, skylights or other openings. The joints of all such pipes shall be properly caulked and run with lead.

23. Every covered main drain or sewer carrying sewage or sullage water shall have a ventilating opening near to its lower end and in the open air, and no trap or other obstruction to the free circulation of air shall exist between this opening and the one described in the preceding regulation.

When a covered main drain receives the drainage of more than one building the Build- ing Authority may require additional provision for ventilation of the branch drain from each building.

24. All eaves gutters shall be of cast iron or other material approved by the Building Authority and shall be securely fixed at a proper gradient and connected to rain-water pipes to the satisfaction of the Building Authority.

25. Rain-water pipes and waste-pipes from baths, sinks and other similar appliances on the upper floors of buildings shall be fixed, as far as may be practicable, vertically and 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 materials, securely fixed outside the wall, and in the open air, by means of wrought iron bands fitted round the pipe, and made fast with wrought iron spikes not less than four inches long, or in the case of iron pipes by means of ears, made fast as above described and provided, at each point of connection, with a suitable head, and at their lower extremity with a bend, shoe or pedestal pipe. Every opening in the wall of a building for the discharge of sullage water shall be of a suitable size and entirely protected to the satisfaction of the Building Authority by a fixed grating of cast iron or other material to be approved by the Building Authority.

Provided that in the case of rain-water pipes and waste-pipes abutting on any street, cast or wrought iron pipes only shall be used, properly jointed as above described, (unless permission has been granted by the Building Authority to use pipes of other material), and wherever practicable rain-water pipes shall be carried under the foot-path and shall discharge into the side channel. All joints of stoneware pipes shall be made in the manner provided by No. 3 of these regulations.

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

26. No waste-pipe (other than a soil pipe from a water-closet or urinal) and no rain-water pipe shall be connected directly with any covered drain, but every such pipe shall be brought down to within one foot from the ground and shall discharge in the open air near to or over a trap.

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

28. Any person who may have laid any drain or sewer or constructed drainage works connected therewith shall not cover up such drain, sewer or works until the same shall have been previously inspected and passed by the Building Authority or an officer deputed by him, and every such person shall give three clear days' written notice to such Authority that such drain or sewer or works are ready for inspection, and such notice shall be delivered at the office of the Building Authority in a form of which printed copies in English and Chinese may be obtained gratis on application at the office of the Build- ing Authority, or, in the case of villages, at any village Police Station between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Provided that in all cases where plans or a notice signed by an authorized architect have been submitted under regulation 1, the notice referred to in this regulation shall, if the Building Authority so require, be signed by an authorized

architect.

29. Before any drain or sewer is covered in it shall be inspected and tested by the Building Authority or an officer deputed by him to ascertain whether it is watertight and air-tight; and no drain or sewer that fails in either of these respects shall be passed. A fee of ten dollars shall be paid by the person who signs the notice referred to in the preceding regulation for every inspection after the first if the Building Authority is satisfied that such further inspection has been necessitated by negligence or by bad workmanship or the use of improper materials. After a drain or sewer has been passed, the earth shall be carefully filled in, above and around the drain or sewer, and thoroughly rammed and consolidated. For a depth of at least six inches, above the summit of the sockets of the pipes, selected material, free from stones larger than will pass through a 2-inch ring, shall be used in filling in the trench.

30. Surface channels shall be constructed of impervious materials to be approved by the Building Authority and of such section as the Building Authority may approve and shall be finished off smooth and laid to regular gradients of not less than one in eighty unless the Building Authority shall permit a less gradient.

31. The floors of all kitchens, sculleries, bathrooms, stables, cow-sheds and the like, shall, where practicable, be laid to proper falls, and shall be elevated above the ground outside the building, and shall 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, such surface channel shall be connected to a trap outside the house by a straight pipe terminating above the water- level and below the grating of the trap, which shall be accessible and in free communica- tion with the open air. Every such opening in the wall shall be of a suitable size and entirely protected by a fixed grating, at its upper end, to the satisfaction of the Building Authority.

32. All surfaces of back-yards and paved areas of premises wherever 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.

CHAPTER I.

GENERAL RULES.

1. These regulations are issued in pursuance of the Merchant Shipping Consolidation Ordinance No. 10 of 1899.

In accordance with section 4 (2) of that Ordinance, "Every British and every Colonial ship exceeding 60 tons when leaving any Port in the Colony must be provided with officers duly certificated according to the following scale :-

*

*

*

**

*

(d.) If the ship is a steamship of one hundred nominal horse-power or upwards, with at least two Engineers, one of whom shall be a First Class, and the other a First Class or Second Class Engineer, duly certificated.

(e.) If the ship is a steamship of less than one hundred nominal horse- power, with at least one Engineer who is a First Class or Second Class Engineer duly certificated."

An officer is not duly certificated unless he is the holder for the time being of a valid Certificate of Competency under the Merchant Shipping Act or a Colonial Certificate of Competency declared by order of His Majesty in Council to be of the same force as if it had been granted under the said Act, of a grade appropriate to his station in the ship or of a higher grade.

If any person, having been engaged as one of the above-mentioned officers goes to sea as such officer without being duly certificated, or employs a person as an officer, in contravention of the above provisions without ascertaining that the person so serving is duly certificated, that person shall be liable for each offence to a fine not exceeding two hundred and fifty dollars.

By section 4 of Ordinance 10 of 1899 provision is made for holding ex- aminations for the grant of Certificates of Competency, and power is given to regulate the conduct of the examinations and the qualification of the applicants.

2. Candidates for examination must fill up a form of application (form Exn. 3) at the Harbour Office. The form, properly filled in, together with the candidate's certificate of apprenticeship, testimonials, and discharges, must be lodged with the Harbour Master not later than the day before the day of examina- tion.

The Examiner should be particularly careful to ascertain that there are no gaps in the Candidate's service which are not properly accounted for, before he is allowed for examination.

3. Should any doubt exist as to the age of a candidate he will be required to produce a certificate of birth.

4. It is provided by section 4 of the Ordinance that any person who makes, assists in making, or procures to be made, any false representation for the purpose of procuring either for himself or for any other person a Certificate of Competency, shall in respect of each offence be guilty of a misdemeanour, which is punishable, on summary conviction, with imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months, with or without hard labour, or with a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars.

They must be signed by the Master and Chief Engineer (or in the case of testimonials to Chief Engineers, by the Master and Superintending Engineer) and must clearly state whether the applicant was on regular watch, and in regular charge of a watch on the main engines or boilers. It is desirable that testimonials of candidates should be endorsed by the Superintending Engineer. No time spent in clerical work will be allowed to count.

7. Candidates who have neglected to join their vessels after having signed Penalty for articles, or who have deserted their vessels after having joined, or who have been misconduct. found guilty of gross misconduct on board, will be required to produce satisfactory proof of two years' subsequent service and good conduct at sea unless the Harbour Master, after having investigated the matter, should see fit to reduce the time.

In cases where a testimonial from the Chief Engineer, or from the Master, Further as is for any sufficient reason not obtainable, one may be submitted from the Superin- tending Engineer in place of that of the Chief Engineer, and one from the Managing Owner or Secretary or Chairman of a large Company in place of that of the Master; but in every such instance the testimonial must declare that the facts stated are in accordance with the reports made by the Chief Engineer or the Master, as the case may be, or else that the facts are within the writer's personal knowledge.

9. When a candidate is observed to be hard of hearing, or is labouring under Physical any other obvious physical defect, the signatories of his testimonial are required to defects. mention that defect specifically, and to state whether it in any way interfered with the efficiency of the candidate as an Engineer on watch. When these modified testimonials are such as to completely satisfy the Examiner that the defect is not such as to interfere with the efficient discharge of the applicant's duties as Engineer, the examination is proceeded with; otherwise the case is referred to the Harbour Master. Candidates afflicted with nervous impediment in speech may write their answers to vivâ voce questions.

The testimonials of service of Foreign Engineers and of British Engineers Foreign serving in foreign vessels, which cannot be verified by the Harbour Master, must Engineers: be confirmed either by the Consul of the country to which the ship in which the service. candidate served belonged, or by some other recognized official authority of the country; or by the testimony of some credible person on the spot having personal knowledge of the facts required to be established. The production, however, of such proofs will not of necessity be deemed sufficient. Each case must be decided on its own merits; and if the sufficiency of the proofs given appears to be at all doubtful, the point will be referred to the Governor.

but if the Governor is satisfied that the error in the calculation of the candidate's services did not occur through any fault or wilful misrepresentation on his part, he will have the fee returned to him. Should his service entitle him to a Certifi- cate of a lower grade it may be granted to him, and the difference, if any, between the fee paid by him for the superior Certificate and the fee payable for the inferior Certificate will be returned to him. The superior Certificate will not be granted until the candidate has performed the amount of service in which he was deficient, and has been re-examined in all the subjects, unless the Governor sees fit to dis- pense with the re-examination.

15. If the candidate fails in practical knowledge he may not present himself for re-examination until he can produce proofs of three months' further service at sea as Engineer on watch on the main engines or boilers from the date of failure. If he fails in arithmetic, elementary questions, or drawing only, he may come up again at any time.

16. Candidates for examination, in making their application on the form Exn. 3, will be required to pay the examination fee before any step is taken to- wards inquiring into their service or testing their qualifications, &c. If the candi- date is found not to be qualified, the fee will be returned to him.

17. If a candidate fails in his examination, no part of the fee he has paid will be returned to him.

50. Any candidate violating any of the regulations, or being guilty of in- solence to the Examiner, or of disorderly or improper conduct in or about the room, will render himself liable to the postponement of his examination, or, in the event of his having passed, to the detention of his Certificate for such period as the Governor may direct.

51. The examination of candidates for Second Class Certificates consists of three parts: arithmetic, elementary questions, and ricû roce ; and danc of candidates for First Class Certificates of four parts: arithmetic, drawing, clementary questions, and vivâ voce. See paras. 18 and 19.

52. When the number of marks obtained in arithmetic amoun's to 28, that is two-thirds of the maximum, the candidate passes in arithmetic.

If the marks obtained amount to 21, but not to 28, and if the applicant has had long sea experience, his testimonials should be taken into account, and his examination continued, if deemed advisable by the Examiner, and he may be passed or failed, having due regard to his practical knowledge, and to whether he is being examined for second class or first class.

53. All Engineer applicants presenting themselves for examination will be required to give written answers to ten questions selected from Elementary Ques- tions shown in Appendix B. These questions are intended to furnish a record to some extent of candidate's knowledge at the time of his examination, and also to induce the candidates to pay more attention to their handwriting and spelling. Examiners will require all candidates to fill up a form H 137, Exn. 3.

The questions for both classes of Engineers will be taken from the same series of Elementary Questions; and candidates for first class certificates are expected to show their superiority by giving answers more complete than those of the other candidates.

54. Having regard to the fact that when the oral examination is held, the candidate has already passed in artithmetic, and, if a first class candidate, in draw- ing, and has also written auswers to the elementary questions, the Examiners will deal with practical, rather than theoretical, questions in the division of the examination; and no candidate should be failed without having been well cross- questioned on the points for which failure takes place.

The elementary questions to be answered on Form Exu. 156 are good starting points in vicâ voce examinations. With the candidates' written answers before the Examiner, the same question can be put in a way requiring an answer in another form. Each question may be developed into several according to the circumstances of the case, eg.:·

1. What is

2. What is its use?

made of? Of what parts does it consist?

3. What attention does it require at sea?

4. What attention does it require in port?

5. When it becomes defective, what is it that principally goes wrong

with it ?

6. How is it repaired ?

7. What alteration may prevent a recurrence of the defect?

It is considered of great importance that Engineers presenting themselves for examination should have an extensive knowledge of the particulars of actual casual- fios which have occurred at sea, and be able to state how these might have been d?e- vented, and how remedied. Sometimes an Engineer presents himself who has had no personal experience of any defects, and who can tell nothing about casualties to machinery which have occurred in the experience of others; such candidates should be closely questioned as to their knowledge of boiler and engine construc- tion and the repairs of same.

The management of engines and boilers at sea, the duties of the Engineer on watch, the work to be done to the engines, boilers, and auxiliary machinery in port, and the periodical examinations of the working parts, form part of the vivi voce examination.

How is the intensity of forced or induced draught measured? What is the usual pressure employed in the mercantile marine?

194.

An explosive gas is liberated from bunker coal. Usually in well ventilated bunkers this gas cscapes into the atmosphere without doing harın. In ill-ventilated bunkers the gas after mixing with a certain proportion of common air has been known to explode when a naked light has been brought into contact with it. What is the composition of the gas? Where is it found, in bunkers, 'tween decks, pockets, and coal shoots? How may it be got rid of as soon as it evolves from the coal ? How many cubic feet of air to on of the gas forms a violent explosive mixture?

195.

A lighted lamp or candle has sometimes been lowerei into an apparently empty paraffin tank and produced an explosion resulting in injury to the person holding the light. What did the tank probably contain, and what produced the explosion?

196.

In vessels carrying coal-cargoes it has been observed that, generally speaking, the gas which escapes from the body of the coal is found more abundantly at the forward end of the hold than at the after end. Why should this be so?

197.

In recently opened ballast tanks, double-bottoms, and boilers, a light lowered into either has sometimes been extinguished. What would, in all probability, cause this?

198.

201.

In a heavily listed vessel, why is it difficult to keep steam?

202.

If the engine pumps got choked and water accumulates in the stokehold bilges, what effect does the water have upon the bilge boards and stokehold plates, when the ship is rolling violently?

203.

In a triple expansion engine, what spare gear do you consider necessary in the case of a foreign-going ship? Also what stores would you provide for a voyage to New Zealand ?

205.

Does the pressure on the thrust-collars vary with the horse-power, or with the speed of the ship, or how?

206.

If the holding-down bolts of a thrust-bearing should become slack, what effect would it have upon the working of the engines?

213.

Where, by preference, should the escape-valve of a feed pump be placed? Why?

214.

Scum cocks are sometimes fitted to boiler-shells at a height convenient for Engineers to manipulate when standing in the stokehold; the scum pipes in such cases are led upward, inside the boiler, to a little above the combustion chamber tops. What danger may arise from this arrangement?

215.

Cocks for testing the water level of boilers are sometimes fitted within reach of the Engineer who is standing in the stokehold. These may have internal pipes leading upward and terminating at various levels. Under what circumstances may these become misleading?

216.

Why should the pipe which leads from the bottom of the water-gauge column to the bottom of the boiler-front, or back, be covered with non-conducting material? Why also should it never have lengthy horizontal bends?

217.

In your own experience, how frequently is this pipe removed and cleared ?

218.

Why, even with the best of water-gauges, is it advisable to occasionally use the drain- cock ?

219.

Steam loops have sometimes been inadvertently made in the length of piping leading from the top of the water-gauge column to the top of the boiler. Roughly sketch such a loop and explain the danger arising from its existence.

220.

Describe your method of thoroughly testing the water-gauge system to satisfy yourself that all the cocks and pipes are clear. Your answer can be written on a supplementary sheet of foolscap, which the Examiner will hand you. Hand sketches, mere lines indicating pipes, and circles indicating cocks, should be made. Identify the cocks and pipes by letters or numerals.

Appendix C.

EXAMINATION IN ROUGH WORKING DRAWING FOR A FIRST CLASS ENGINEER'S CERTIFICATE OF COMPETENCY.

1. The regulations of the Board of Trade in regard to the qualifications of a candidate for a First Class Engineer's certificate of competency specify that,-

"He must be able to make rough working drawings of the different parts of the

engines and boilers.

"He must be able to state the general proportions borne by the principal parts of

the machinery to each other."

2. In accordance with these clauses, a candidate for a First Class Certificate is required to make a rough working drawing of the parts. An Engineer who has been some years in charge of marine engines and boilers ought to have familiarly in his mind the general con- struction of at least one set of engines and boilers, say that set he was last with. Fine drawing is not expected, and in the proportions of the parts a wide margin will be allowed; absurd dimensions will be failure in practical knowledge.

3. The drawing must, however, be practically a working drawing, giving a sufficient number of views to show the parts fully-sections, plans, or elevations, just as the candidate would require to be supplied to him if he had to make the parts to the design of another

person.

4. A clear hand sketch showing the constructions completely, and fully dimensioned, will be accepted if the candidate prefers this alternative.

5. A portion only of the parts specified may be accepted in place of the whole, if that portion is sufficient to show that the candidate has a good practical idea of the construction of the parts, and a fair notion of their general proportions or dimensions.

6. Candidates are hereby cautioned not to put on paper what they have not fully considered, and deliberately intend to be understood, as their statement of what they know about the construction of any part required.

7. The statements given in by a candidate may be in themselves, apparently, of little importance, but, as sample material from which the state of the candidate's knowledge of engines and boilers is to be inferred, every detail which is glaringly inconsistent with a sound knowledge of the use of the part, or in which an essential consideration has evidently been overlooked, is an important element in the description which the candidate is giving of his own qualifications.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 11, 1910.

151

8. The candidate is advised not to begin more than he can clearly finish in the time allowed. An important object in this part of the examination is to ascertain whether the candidate can be trusted to mark all necessary dimensions upon a sketch or a drawing. The test of this is, practically, the making of the part from the sketch without having to supply additional dimensions, and without measuring the drawing. To prove this ability the candidate must fully dimension the parts, shown in his sketch or drawing, notwith- standing that the parts may be correctly drawn to scale. A drawing is fully dimensioned when no part of it is left to the option of the party who is to work to the drawing.

9. To prevent misunderstanding, however, when the candidate has been led into showing more of the details than he has time fully to finish, he should name, ineth statement on the other side, the particular parts which he has fully dimensioned.

10. All dimensions should have lines and darts, to indicate distinctly the points between which the dimensions are given.

11. Beware of writing cross dimensions upon centre lines, or upon longitudinal dimension lines. This is not an order but a recommendation.

12. The candidate is not expected to design anything; he has merely to sketch or draw something with which he is expected to be already familiar. At the same time he should call attention to any defect in the design of the article or apparatus. Omission to do so will imply want of practical knowledge.

13. Pencil in nothing after half-past three; all the dimensions, the figures, and the darts must be inked in: employ the remaining time in examining the drawing and in inking in any figures which may have been before overlooked, and in checking the dimensions.

All

14. Make sure that you will have sufficient room on the drawing sheet to show all the necessary views. You can have another sheet of drawing paper if necessary. the paper used must be forwarded with the drawing.

Note-For the Reading of the Water Gauges candidates are referred to Appendix E of the Regulations relating to the Examination of Engineers in the Mercantile Marine" issued by the Board of Trade, which can be had from local booksellers.

QUESTIONS.--Mr. STEWART gave notice that he will ask the following Questions at the next meeting of the Council:---

(a.) Did the Governor of the Colony in this Council on the 20th Ju 9, 1903, accur

ately state the intentions of the Government when he said As regards the ground in front of the Club, I hope that nothing will ever be built upon it. I propose that the ground shall be made a public garden.

My idea

is that the ground shall be preserved as an open space entirely and add to the beauty of the place (b.) Did the Honourable the Director of Public Works (then as now Mr. Chatham) at the official ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the new Law Courts, on November the 12th, 1993, in the presence of the Governor of the Colony, the Hon, the Colonial Secretary (then Mr, nowe Sir Henry May), and ming other high Government officials, decurately state the intent ous of the Gorern- ment when he read from a written document this announcement :

" The area to the north of this will, therefore, remain unbuilt upon, and an almost wuriedled site for the Courts, haring regard to the open spaces which will adjoin them on three sides, will thus be created"?

(c.) Dil His Excellency Sir Frederick Luyard accurately state the intentims of the Government when, on the 28th October, 1909, he stil in this Council, in reply to a question whether the Government would undertake to have the plot in question cleared and made presentable as soon as if it is no longer necess vy to the work on the Lur Courts and Post Office to maint un it in its present uutidy state : the present intention of the Government is to dear the plot as soon as it can be done"?

(d.) In view of these seemingly authoritative statements, not easily to be thought of as irresponsible utterances, is it, on consideration, really incomprehensible to high Government officials how an impression was created in the public mind which led to many hearing with surprise of the recent decision to sell to a private parchaser, for building purposes, the site in question?

A PROCLAMATION.

THEREAS it is provided in the Act of Congress approved August 5, 1909, entitled "An Act to provide revenue, equalize duties and encourage the industries of the United States, and for other purposes

That from and after the thirty-first day of March, nineteen hundred and ten, except as otherwise specially provided for in this section, there shall be levied. collected, and paid on all articles when imported from any foreign country into the United States, or into any of its possessions (except the Philippine Islands and the islands of Guam and Tutuila), the rates of duty prescribed by the schedules and paragraphs of the dutiable list of section one of this Act, and in addition thereto twenty-five per centum ad valorem ; which rates shall constitute the maximum tariff of the United States: Provided, That whenever, after the thirty-first day of March, nineteen hundred and ten, and so long thereafter as the President shall be satisfied, in view of the character of the concessions granted by the minimum tariff of the United States, that the government of any foreign country imposes no terms or restrictions, either in the way of tariff rates or provisions. trade or other regulations, charges, exactions, or in any other manner, directly or in- directly, upon the importation into or the sale in such foreign country of any agricultural, manufactured, or other product of the United States, which unduly discriminate against the United States or the products thereof, and that such foreign country pays no export bounty or imposes no export duty or prohibition upon the exportation of any article to the United States which unduly discriminates against the United States or the products thereof, and that such foreign country accords to the agricultural, manu- factured, or other products of the United States treatment which is reciprocal and equivalent, thereupon and thereafter, upon proclamation to this effect. by the President of the United States, all articles when imported into the United States, or any of its possessions (except the Philippine Islands and the islands of Guam and Tutuila), from such foreign country shall, except as otherwise herein provided, be admitted under the terms of the minimuin tariff of the United States as prescribed by section one of this Act.

And Whereas satisfactory evidence has been presented to me that the Government of His Britannic Majesty with respect to Hongkong and Kowloon imposes no terms or restric- tions, either in the way of tariff rates or provisions, trade or other regulations, charges, exactions, or in any other manner, directly or indirectly, upon the importation into or the sale in Hongkong and Kowloon of any agricultural, manufactured, or other product of the United States, which unduly discriminate against the United States or the products thereof, and that the Government of His Britannic Majesty with respect to Hongkong and Kowloon pays no export bounty or imposes no export duty or prohibiton upon the exportation of any article to the United States which unduly discriminates against the United States or the products thereof, and that the Government of His Britannic Majesty with respect to Hongkong and Kowloon accords to the agricultural, manufactured, or other products of the United States treatment which is reciprocal and equivalent :

Now. Therefore. I, WILLIAM HOWARD TAFT, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the power in me vested by the aforesaid Act of Congress, do hereby make known and proclaim that from and after March 1, 1910, and so long thereafter as the aforesaid Act of Congress is in existence and the Government of His Britannic Majesty with respect to Hongkong and Kowloon imposes no terms or restrictions upon the importation or sale in Hongkong and Kowloon of the products of the United States which unduly

Provided, however, that this proclamation shall not take effect from and after March 31, 1910, but shall be null and void in the event that, at any time prior to the aforesaid date, satisfactory evidence shall be presented to the President that the Government of His Britannic Majesty with respect to Hongkong and Kowloon has made such change or changes in its present laws or regulations affecting Ain rican commerce in Hongkong and Kowloon as to discriminate unduly in any way against such commerce, and in the further event that a proclamation by the President of such fact, revoking the present proclamation, shall have. been issued.

WHEREAS His Majesty was pleased, by His Commission dated the fifth day of March,

 one thousand nine hundred and ten, to nominate and appoint His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, in His Majesty's absence from His Realm in Foreign Parts, to hold on His Majesty's behalf, His Privy Council, and to signify thereat His approval of any matter or thing whereunto His Royal Highness should be authorized by writing under His Majesty's Sign Manual, and to do further on His Majesty's behalf any matter or thing for the purposes of the said Commission whereunto His Royal Highness should be authorized in manner aforesaid:

And whereas by section four of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1906, it is provided that sections four hundred and twenty-seven to four hundred and thirty-one of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894 (hereinafter called the Principal Act), relating to life-saving appliances shall, after the appointed day, apply to all foreign ships while they are within any port of the United Kingdom as they apply to British ships. Provided that His Majesty may by Order in Council direct that those provisions shall not apply to any ship of a foreign country in which the provisions in force relating to life-saving appliances appear to His Majesty to be as effective as the provisions of Part V of the Principal Act, on proof that those provisions are complied with in the case of that ship:

And whereas by section five of the said Act it is provided that the said appointed day shall be the first day of January, nineteen hundred and nine, or such other day not being more than twelve months later, as the Board of Trade may appoint :

And whereas the Board of Trade appointed the first day of October, one thousand nine hundred and nine, to be the day after which the provisions of the Principal Act relating to life-saving appliances should apply to all foreign ships while they are within any port of the United Kingdom as they apply to British ships:

And whereas it appears to His Majesty that the provisions in force in Denmark relating to life-saving appliances are as effective as the provisions of Part V of the Principal Act :

Now therefore His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, being authorized thereto by writing under His Majesty's Sign Manual, doth, by and with the advice of His Majesty's Privy Council, on behalf of His Majesty, direct that the provisions of sections four hundred and twenty-seven to four hundred and thirty-one of the Principal Act shall not apply to any Danish ship while within any port of the United Kingdom, if it is proved that the aforesaid Danish provisions relating to life-saving appliances are complied with in the case of that ship.

HEREAS by Section 4 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1906, it is provided that Sections 427 to 31 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1891 (hereinafter called the Principal Act), relating to live-saving appliances shall, after the appointed day, apply to all foreign ships while they are within any port of the United Kingdom as they apply to British ships. Provided that His Majesty may by Order in Council direct that those provisions shall not apply to any ship of a foreign country in which the provisions in force relating to life-saving appliances appear to His Majesty to be as effective as the provisions of Part V. of the Principal Act, on proof that those provisions are complied with in the case of that ship :

And whereas by Section 5 of the said Act it is provided that the said appointed day shall be the first day of January, 1909, or such other day not being more than twelve months later, as the Board of Trade may appoint:

And whereas the Board of Trade have appointed the first day of October, 1909, to be the day after which the provisions of the Principal Act relating to life-saving appliances should apply to all foreign ships while they are within any port of the United Kingdom as they apply to British ships:

And whereas it appears to His Majesty that the provisions in force in the Netherlands relating to life-saving appliances are as effective as the provisions of Part V. of the Principal

Act:

Now therefore, His Majesty, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, is pleased to direct that the provisions of Sections 427 to 431 of the Principal Act shall not apply to any ship of the Netherlands while within any port of the United Kingdom, if it is proved that the aforesaid provisions in force in the Netherlands relating to life-saving appliances are complied with in the case of that ship.
