CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET,

3rd December, 1910.

SIR,- With reference to Mr. Chamberlain's Circular of the 20th of January, 1897, and the Earl of Elgin's Circular of the 22nd of May, 1906, I have the honour to transmit to you, for such publication or other action as to you may appear desirable, a copy of an Order-in- Council of the 13th of October, 1910, prescribing new regulations for the prevention of collisions at sea, and rules relating to signals of distress.

I have, &c.,

The Officer Administering the Government of

HONGKONG.

L. HARCOURT.

NOTE BY THE BOARD OF TRADE.

     The Order-in-Council of 13th October, 1910, reproduces the regulations for preventing collisions at sea and the regulations relating to distress signals which have been in force since 1897, and also embodies, in articles 8 and 9 respectively, the regulations as to the lights of steam pilot vessels and the lights and signals of fishing-vessels which were enacted by Order-in-Council in 1892 and 1906 respec- tively. It also applies the regulations, with certain reservations, to the vessels of a large number of foreign countries.

No alteration has been made in the requirements of the regulations affecting British vessels. The previous Order-in-Council respecting collision regulations and signals of distress are now

obsolete.

AT THE COURT AT SAINT JAMES'S,

THE 13TH DAY OF OCTOBER, 1910.

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

WH

HEREAS by Section 418 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894, His Majesty is empowered from time to time on the joint recommendation of the Admiralty and the Board of Trade by Order in Council to make regulations for preventing collisions at sea, in the said Act referred to as Collision Regulations:

And whereas by Section 424 of the said Act it is provided that whenever it is made to. appear to His Majesty in Council that the Government of any foreign country is willing that the said regulations or any of them should apply to the ships of that country when beyond the limits of British jurisdiction. His Majesty may, by Order in Council, direct that those regulations shall, subject to any limitation of time, conditions and qualifications con- -tained in the Order, apply to the ships of the said foreign country, whether within British jurisdiction or not, and that such ships shall for the purpose of such regulations be treated. as if they were British ships:

    And whereas by Section 434 of the said Act His Majesty is empowered from time to time by Order in Council to make rules as to signals of distress:

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 13, 1911.

7

And whereas by Section 734 of the said Act it is provided that where it has been made to appear to His Majesty that the Government of any foreign country is desirous that any of the provisions of that Act which do not apply to the ships of that country, should so apply, and there are no special provisions in the Act for that application, His Majesty in Council may order that such of those provisions as are in the Order specified shall (subject to the limitations, if any, contained therein) apply to the ships of that country, and to the owners, masters, seamen, and apprentices of those ships, when not locally within the jurisdiction of the government of that country, in the same manner in all respects as if those ships were British ships:

   And whereas by Section 738 of the said Act it is provided that where His Majesty has power under that Act or any Act amending the same, to make an Order in Council His Majesty may from time to time make that Order in Council and by Order in Council revoke, alter or add to any Order so made :

And whereas by the said last-mentioned Section it is further provided that subject to any-special provisions of that Act upon the publication of any such Order the Order shall as from the date of its publication or any later date mentioned in the Order take effect as if it were enacted by Parliament :

   And whereas by an Order in Council dated the 27th day of November, 1896, regula- tions for preventing collisions at sea and as to distress signals were made as regards British ships and boats, and by a subsequent Order dated the 7th day of July, 1897, these regula- tions were extended, subject to the limitations stated in the Order, to the ships of the several countries specified in Schedule III. to the last mentioned Order:

   And whereas by Orders in Council dated respectively the 18th day of August, 1892, the 7th day of July, 1897, and the 4th day of April, 1906, other regulations for the preven tion of collisions were made as regards British ships:

   And whereas it is expedient to consolidate the regulations which have been made as regards British ships:

   And whereas it has been made to appear to His Majesty that the Governments of the several countries mentioned in Schedule II. hereto annexed are willing that the regulations and rules contained in Schedule 1. should, subject to the qualifications mentioned in the aforesaid Sche lule 1. and to the proviso in the case of Chinese ships that the application of the regulations and rules shall be limited to ships of foreign type, apply to the ships of those countries when beyond the limits of British jurisdiction:

And whereas the provisions of Section one of the Rules Publication Act, 1893, have been complied with:

Now therefore His Majesty, by virtue of the powers conferred on Him by the aforesaid Act, and on the joint recommendation of the Admiralty and the Board of Trade, and by and with the advice of His Privy Council, is pleased to direct that the collision regulations and the rules as to signals of distress contained in Schedule I. to this Order shall apply to all British ships:

And His Majesty is also pleased to direct that the said regulations and rules shall, subject to the aforesaid qualifications and to the proviso in the case of Chinese ships that the regulations and rules will be applicable only to ships of foreign type, apply to the ships of the countries named in Schedule II. to this Order whether they are within British jurisdiction or not, and that such ships shall for the purpose of such regulations and rules be treated as if they were British ships:

And His Majesty is further pleased to direct that this Order shall come into operation on and after the 13th day of October, 1910, and that as and from the coming into opera- tion of this Order the Orders in Council specified in Schedule III. to this Order shall be revoked and the same shall be revoked accordingly.

SCHEDULE I.

Preliminary.

These Rules shall be followed by all vessels upon the high seas and in all waters con- nected therewith, navigable by sea-going vessels.

    In the following Rules every steam vessel which is under sail and not under steam is to be considered a sailing vessel, and every vessel under steam, whether under sail or not, is to be considered a steam vessel.

The word "steam vessel" shall include any vessel propelled by machinery.

   A vessel is "under way within the meaning of these Rules, when she is not at an- chor, or made fast to the shore or aground.

Rules concerning Light, &c.

The word "visible" in these Rules, when applied to lights, shall mean visible on a dark night with a clear atmosphere.

   Article 1. The Rules concerning lights shall be complied with in all weathers from sunset to sunrise, and during such time no other lights which may be mistaken for the prescribed lights shall be exhibited.

Article 2. A steain vessel when under way shall carry-

(a.) On or in front of the foremast, or if a vessel without a foremast, then in the fore part of the vessel, at a height above the hull of not less than 20 feet, and if the breadth of the vessel exceeds 20 feet, then at a height above the hull not less than such breadth, so, however, that the light need not be carried at a greater height above the hull than 40 feet, a bright white light, so constructed as to show an unbroken light over an are of the horizon of 20 points of the compass, so fixed as to throw the light 10 points on each side of the vessel, viz., from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam on either side, and of such a character as to be visible at a distance of at least 5 miles.

(b.) On the starboard side a green light so constructed as to show an unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 10 points of the compass, so fixed as to throw the light from right ahead to two points abaft the beam on the starboard side, and of such a character as to be visible at a distance of at least 2 miles. (c.) On the port side a red light so constructed as to show an unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 10 points of the compass, so fixed as to throw the light from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam on the port side, and of such a cha- racter as to be visible at a distance of at least 2 miles.

(d.) The said green and red side-lights shall be fitted with inboard screens projecting at least 3 feet forward from the light, so as to prevent these lights from being seen across the bow.

(e.) A steam vessel when under way may carry an additional white light similar in construction to the light mentioned in subdivision (a). These two lights shall be so placed in line with the keel that one shall be at least 15 feet higher than the other, and in such a position with reference to each other that the lower light shall be forward of the upper one.

The vertical distance between these

lights shall be less than the horizontal distance.

Article 3. A steam vessel when towing another vessel shall, in addition to her side- lights, carry two bright white lights in a vertical line one over the other, not less than 6 feet apart, and when towing more that one vessel shall carry an additional bright white light 6 feet above or below such lights, if the length of the tow, masuring from the stern of the towing vessel to the stern of the last vessel towed, exceeds 600 feet.

Each of these

lights shall be of the same construction and character, and shall be carried in the same posi- tion as the white light mentioned in Article 2 (a), except the additional light, which may be carried at a height of not less than 14 feet above the hull.

   Such steam vessel may carry a small white light abaft the funnel or aftermast for the vessel towed to steer by, but such light shall not be visible forward of the beam.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 13, 1911.

Article 4.- (a.) A vessel which from any accident is not under command shall carry at the same height as the white light mentioned in Article 2 (a), where they can best be seen, and, if a steam vessel, in lieu of that light, two red lights, in a vertical line one over the other, not less than 6 feet apart, and of such a character as to be visible all round the horizon at a distance of at least 2 miles; and shall by day carry in a vertical line one over the other not less than 6 feet apart, where they can best be seen, two black balls or shapes each 2 feet in diameter.

(b.) A vessel employed in laying or in picking up a telegraph cable shall carry in the same position as the white light mentioned in Article 2 (a), and if a steam vessel, in lieu of that light, three lights in a vertical line one over the other, not less than 6 feet apart. -The highest and lowest of these lights shall be red, and the middle light shall be white, and they shall be of such a character as to be visible all round the horizon, at a distance of at least 2 miles. By day she shall carry in a vertical line one over the other, not less than 6 feet apart, where they can best be seen, three shapes not less than 2 feet in diameter, of which the highest and lowest shall be globular in shape and red in colour, and the middle one diamond in shape and white.

  (c.) The vessels referred to in this Article when not making way through the water, shall not carry the side lights, but when making way shall carry them.

  (d.) The lights and shapes required to be shown by this Article are to be taken by other vessels as signals that the vessel showing them is not under command and cannot therefore get out of the way.

These signals are not signals of vessels in distress and requiring assistance. Such signals are contained in Article 31.

Article 5. A sailing vessel under way, and any vessel being towed, shall carry the same lights as are prescribed by Article 2 for a steam vessel uuder way, with the exception of the white lights mentioned therein, which they shall never carry.

Article 6. Whenever, as in the case of small vessels under way during bad weather, the green and red side-lights cannot be fixed, these lights shall be kept at hand lighted and ready for use; and shall, on the approach of or to other vessels, be exhibited on their res- pective sides in sufficient time to prevent collision, in such manner as to make them most visible, and so that the green light shall not be seen on the port side nor the red light on the starboard side, nor, if practicable, more than 2 points abaft the beam on their respective sides.

To make the use of these portable lights more certain and easy, the lanterns contain- ing them shall each be painted outside with the colour of the light they respectively contain, and shall be provided with proper screens.

Article 7. Steam vessels of less than 40, and vessels under oars or sails of less than 20, tous gross tonnage, respectively, and rowing boats, when under way, shall not be obliged to carry the lights mentioned in Article 2 ("), (b) and (c), but if they do not carry them they shall be provided with the following lights :-

ડું

1. Steam vessels of less than 40 tons shall carry :

(a.) In the fore part of the vessel, or on or in front of the funnel, where it can best be seen, and at a height above the gunwale of not less than 9 feet, a bright white light constructed and fixed as prescribed in Article 2 (a), and of such a character as to be visible at a distance of at least 2 miles.

(b.) Green and red side-lights constructed and fixed as prescribed in Article 2 (6) and (c), and of such a character as to be visible at a distance of at least 1 mile, or a combined lantern showing a green light and a red light from right ahead to 2 points abaft the beam on their respective sides. Such lantern shall be carried not less than 3 feet below the white light.

2. Small steamboats, such as are carried by sea-going vessels, may carry the white light at a less height than 9 feet above the gunwale, but it shall be carried above the combined lantern, mentioned in sub-division 1 (b).

3. Vessels under oars or sails, of less than 20 tons, shall have ready at hand a lantern with a green glass on one side and a red glass on the other, which, on the approach of or to other vessels, shall be exhibited in sufficient time to prevent collision, so that the green light shall not be seen on the port side nor the red light on the starboard side.

10

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 13, 1911.

4. Rowing boats, whether under oars or sail, shall have ready at hand a lautern showing a white light, which shall be temporarily exhibited in sufficient time to prevent collision.

    The vessels referred to in this Article shall not be obliged to carry the lights prescribed by Article 4 (a), and Article 11, last paragraph.

Article 8. Pilot-vessels, when engaged on their station on pilotage duty, shall not show the lights required for other vessels, but shall carry a white light at the misthead, visible all round the horizon, and shall also exhibit a flare-up light or flare-up lights at short intervals, which shall never exceed fifteen minutes.

On the near approach of or to other vessels they shall have their side-lights lighted, ready for use, and shall flash or show them at short intervals, to indicate the direction in which they are heading, but the green light shall not be shown on the port side, nor the red light on the starboard side.

A pilot-vessel of such a class as to be obliged to go alongside of a vessel to put a pilot instead on board, may show the white light instead of carrying it at the masthead, and may, of the Coloured lights above mentioned, have at hand ready for use a lantern with a green glass on the one side and a red glass on the other, to be used as prescribed above.

A steam pilot-vessel exclusively employed for the service of pilots licensed or certified by any pilotage authority or the Committee of any pilotage district, when engaged on her station on pilotage duty and not at anchor, shall, in addition to the lights required for all pilot boats, carry at a distance of eight feet below her white masthead light a red light visible all round the horizon and of such a character as to be visible on a dark night with a clear atmosphere at a distance of at least two miles, and also the coloured side-lights required to be carried by vessels when under way.

    When engaged on her station on pilotage duty and at anchor she shall carry, in addi- tion to the lights required for all pilot boats, the red light above mentioned, but not the coloured side-lights.

    Pilot-vessels, when not engaged on their station on pilotage duty, shall carry lights similar to those of other vessels of their tonnage.

    Article 9.*+ Fishing-vessels and fishing-boats, when under way and when not required by this Article to carry or show the lights hereinafter specified shall carry or show the lights prescribed for vessels of their tonnage under way.

(a.)

Open boats, by which it is to be understood boats not protected from the entry of sea water by means of a continuous deck, when engaged in any fishing at night with outlying tackle extending not more than 150 feet horizontally from the boat into the seaway, shall carry one all-round white light.

Open boats, when fishing at night, with outlying tackle extending more than 150 feet horizontally from the boat into the seaway, shall carry one all-round white light, and in addition, on approaching or being approached by other vessels, shall show a second white light at least 3 feet below the first light and at a horizontal distance of at least 5 feet away from it in the direction in which the outlying tackle is attached.

(b.) Vessels and boats, except open boats as defined in sub-division (a), when fishing with drift-nets, shall, so long as the nets are wholly or partly in the water, carry two white lights where they can best be seen. Such lights shall be placed so that the vertical distance between them shall be not less than 6 feet and not more than 15 feet, and so that the horizontal distance between them, measured in a line with the keel, shall be not less than 5 feet and not more than 10 feet. The lower of these two lights shall be in the direction of the nets, and both of them shall be of such a character as to show all round the horizon, and to be visible at a distance of not less than 3 miles.

* This article does not apply to Chinese or Siamese vessels.

    †The expression "Mediterranean Sea" contained in sub-sections (b) and (c) of this article includes the Black Sea and the other adjacent inland seas in communication with it.

Dutch vessels and boats when engaged in the "kol," or hand-line, fishing will carry the lights prescribed for vessel fishing with drift-nets.

Should any such vessel, whether under 150 feet in length, or of 150 feet in length or upwards, be attached to a net or other fishing gear, she shall on the approach of other vessels show an additional white light at least 3 feet below the anchor light, and at a horizontal distance of a least 5 feet away from it in the direction of the net or gear.

(h.) If a vessel or boat when fishing becomes stationary in consequence of her gear getting fast to a rock or other obstruction, she shall in daytime haul down the day-signal required by sub-division (k); at night show the light or lights pre- scribed for a vessel at anchor; and during fog, mist, falling snow, or heavy rain-storms make the signal prescribed for a vessel at anchor.

(i.) In fog, mist, falling snow, or heavy rain-storms, drift-net vessels attached to their nets, and vees ls when trawling, dredging, or fishing with any kind of drag-net, and vessels line fishing with their lines out, shall, if of 20 tons gross tonnage or upwards, respectively, at intervals of not more than one minute make a blast; if steam vessels, with the whistle or siren, and if sailing vessels, with the fog-horn; each blast to be followed by ringing the bell. Fishing vessels and boats of less than 20 tons gross tonnage shall not be obliged to give the above-mentioned signals; but if they do not, they shall make some other efficient sound signal at intervals of not more than one minute.

(k.) All vessels or boats fishing with nets or lines or trawls, when under way, shall in daytime indicate their occupation to an approaching vessel by displaying a basket or other efficient signal where it can best be seen. If vessels or boats at

anchor have their gear out, they shall, on the approach of other vessels, show the same signal on the side on which those vessels can pass.

The vessels required by this Article to carry or show the lights herein before specified shall not be obliged to carry the lights prescribed by Article (4), and the last paragraph of Article 11.

Article 10. A vessel which is being overtaken by another shall show fro:n her stern to such last-mentioned vessel a white light or a flare-up light.

The white light required to be shown by this Artic'e may be fixed and carried in a lantern, but in such case the lantern shall be so constructed, fitted, and screened that it shall throw an unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 12 points of the compass, viz, for 6 points from right aft on each side of the vessel, so as to be visible at a distance of at least 1 mile. Such light shall be carried as nearly as practicable on the same level as the side-lights.

Article 11. A vessel under 150 feet in length, when at anchor, shall carry forward, where it can best be seen, but at a height not exceeding 20 feet above the hull, a white light in a lantern so constructed as to show a clear, uniform, and unbroken light visible all round the horizon at a distance of at least 1 mile.

A vessel of 150 feet or upwards in length, when at anchor, shall carry in the forward part of the vessel, at a height of not less than 20, and not exceeding 40, feet above the hull, one such light, and at or near the stern of the vessel, and at such a height that it shall be not less than 15 feet lower than the forward light, another such light.

The length of a vessel shall be deemed to be the length appearing in her certificate of registry.

A vessel aground in or near a fairway shall carry the above light or lights and the two red lights prescribed by Article 4 (a).

Article 12. Every vessel may, if necessary in order to attract attention, in addition to the lights which she is by these Rules required to carry, show a flare-up light or use any detonating signal that cannot be mistaken for a distress signal.

Article 13. Nothing in these Rules shall interfere with the operation of any special rules made by the Government of any nation with respect to additional station and signal lights for two or more ships of war or for vessels sailing under convoy, or with the exhibition of recognition signals adopted by shipowners, which have been authorized by their respective Governments and duly registered and published.

Article 14. A steam vessel proceeding under sail only, but having her funnel up, shall carry in daytime, forward, where it can best be seen, one black ball or shape 2 feet in

Article 15. All signals prescribed by this Article for vessels uuder way shall be given:

1. By "steam vessels " on the whistle or siren.

2. By

(C

sailing vessels and vessels towed" on the fog-horn.

The words prolonged blast" used in this Article, shall mean a blast of from 4 to 6 seconds' duration.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 13, 1911.

13

A steam vessel shall be provided with an efficient whistle or siren, sounded by steam or some substitute for steam, so placed that the sound may not be intercepted by any ob- struction, and with an efficient fog-horn, to be sounded by mechanical means, and also with an efficient bell.* A sailing vessel of 20 tons gross tonnage or upwards shall be provided with a similar fog-horn and bell.

In fog, mist, falling snow, or heavy rain-storms, whether by day or night, the signals described in this Article shall be used as follows, viz.:-

(a.) A steam vessel having way upon her, shall sound, at intervals of not more than

2 minutes, a prolonged blast.

(b.) A steam vessel under way, but stopped and having no way upon her, shall sound, at intervals of not more than 2 minutes, 2 prolonged blasts, with an in- terval of about 1 second between them.

(c.) A sailing vessel under way shall sound, at intervals of not more than 1 minute, when on the starboard tack one blast, when on the port tack two blasts in succession, and when with the wind abaft the beam three blasts in succession. (d.) A vessel, when at anchor, shall, at intervals of not more than 1 minute, ing

the bell rapidly for about 5 seconds.

(e.) A vessel, when towing, a vessel employed in laying or in picking up a telegraph

cable, and a vessel under way, which is unable to get out of the way of an ap proaching vessel through being not under command, or unable to manœuvre as required by these Rules shall, instead of the signals prescribed in sub-divisions (a) and (c) of this Article, at intervals of not more than two minutes, sound three blasts in succession, viz.:

one prolonged blast followed by two short blasts. A vessel towed may give this signal and she shall not give any other.

Sailing vessels and boats of less than 20 tons gross tonnage shall not be obliged to give the above-mentioned signals, but if they do not, they shall make some other efficient sound- signal at intervals of not more than 1 minute.†

Speed of Ships to be Moderated in Fog, &c.

Article 16. Every vessel shall, in a fog, mist, falling snow, or heavy rain-storms, go at a moderate speed, having careful regard to the existing circumstances and conditions.

A steam vessel hearing, apparently forward of her beam, the fog-signal of a vessel the position of which is not ascertained, shall, so far as the circumstances of the case admit, stop her engines, and then navigate with caution until danger of collision is over.

Steering and Sailing Rules.

Preliminary-Risk of Collision.

Risk of collision can, when circumstances permit, be ascertained by carefully watching the compass bearing of an approaching vessel. If the bearing does not appreciably change, such risk should be deemed to exist.

Article 17. When two sailing vessels are approaching one another, so as to involve risk of collision, one of them shall keep out of the way of the other, as follows, viz.:-

(a.) A vessel which is running free shall keep out of the way of a vessel which is

close-hauled.

(b.) A vessel which is close-hauled on the port tack shall keep out of the way of a

vessel which is close-hauled on the starboard tack.

c.) When both are running free, with the wind on different sides, the vessel which

has the wind on the port side shall keep out of the way of the other.

(d.) When both are running free, with the wind on the same side, the vessel which is to windward shail keep out of the way of the vessel which is to leeward. (e.) A vessel which has the wind aft shall keep out of the way of the other vessel.

  * In all cases where the Rules require a bell to be used a drum may be substituted on board Turkish vessels, or a gong where such articles are used on board small sea-going vessels.

† Dutch steam pilot-vessels, when engaged on their station on pilotage duty in fog, mist, falling snow, or heavy rain-storms are required to make at intervals of 2 minutes at most one long blast with the siren, followed after 1 second by a long blast with the steam whistle and again after 1 second by a long blast on the siren. When not engaged on their station on piletage duty, they make the same signals as other steamships.

14

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 13, 1911.

    Article 18. When two steam vessels are meeting end on, or nearly end on, so as to involve risk of collision, each shall alter her course to starboard, so that each may pass on the port side of the other.

This Article only applies to cases where vessels are meeting end on, or nearly end on, in such a manner as to involve risk of collision, and does not apply to two vessels which must, if both keep on their respective courses, pass clear of each other.. The only cases to which it does apply are when each of the two vessels is end on, or nearly end on, to the other; in other words, to cases in which, by day, each vessel sees the masts of the other in a line or nearly in a line, with her own; and, by night, to cases in which each vessel is in such a position as to see both the side-lights of the other.

It does not apply, by day, to cases in which a vessel sees another ahead crossing her own course; or by night, to cases where the red light of one vessel is opposed to the red light of the other, or where the green light of one vessel is opposed to the green light of the other, or where a red light without a green light, or a green light with- out a red light, is seen ahead, or where both green and red lights are seen anywhere but ahead.

    Article 19. When two steam vessels are crossing, so as to involve risk of collision, the vessel which has the other on her own starboard side shall keep out of the way of the other.

    Article 20. When a steam vessel and a sailing vessel are proceeding in such directions as to involve risk of collision, the steam vessel shall keep out of the way of the sailing vessel.

Article 21. Where by any of these Rules one of two vessels is to keep out of the way the other shall keep her course and speed...

33

Note.--When, in consequence of thick weather or other causes, such vessel finds herself so close that collision cannot be avoided by the action of the giving-way vessel alone, she also shall take such action as will best aid to avert collision. (See Articles 27 and 29.).

Article 22. Every vessel which is directed by these Rules to keep out of the way of another vessel shall, if the circumstances of the case admit, avoid crossing ahead of the other.

Article 23. Every steam vessel which is directed by these Rules to keep out of the way of another vessel shall, on approaching her, if necessary, slacken her speed or stop or

reverse.

Article 24. Notwithstanding anything contained in these Rules, every vessel, overtak- ing any other, shall keep out of the way of the overtaken vessel.

Every vessel coming up with another vessel from any direction more than two points abaft her beam, i.e., in such a position, with reference to the vessel which she is over- taking, that at night she would be unable to see either of vessel's side-lights, shall be deemed to be an overtaking vessel; and no subsequent alteration of the bearing between the two vessels shall make the overtaking vessel a crossing vessel within the meaning of these Rules, or relieve her of the duty of keeping clear of the over- taken vessel until she is finally past and clear.

As by day the overtaking vessel cannot always know with certainty whether she is forward or abaft this direction from the other vessel, she should, if in doubt, assume that she is an overtaking vessel and keep out of the way.

Article 25. In narrow channels every steam vessel shall, when it is safe and practicable, keep to that side of the fair-way or mid-channel which lies on the starboard side of such vessel.

    Article 26. Sailing vessels under way shall keep out of the way of sailing vessels or boats fishing with nets, or lines, or trawls. This Rule shall not give to any vessel or boat engaged in fishing the right of obstructing a fairway used by vessels other than fishing- vessels or boats.

Article 27. In obeying and construing these Rules, due regard shall be had to all dangers of navigation and collision, and to any special circumstances which may render a departure from the above Rules necessary in order to avoid immediate danger.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 13, 1911.

Sound Signals for Vessels in Sight of one Another.

15

Article 28. The words "short blast" used in this Article shall mean a blast of about one second's duration.

   When vessels are in sight of one another, a steam vessel under way, in taking any course authorized or required by these Rules, shall indicate that course by the following signals on her whistle or siren, viz. :-

One short blast to mean, "I am directing my course to starboard."

Two short blasts to mean, "I am directing my course to port."

Three short blasts to mean, "My engines are going full speed astern."

No Vessel under any circumstances to neglect proper Precautions.

Article 29. Nothing in these Rules shall exonerate any vessel, or the owner, or master, or crew thereof, from the consequences of any neglect to carry lights or signals, or of any neglect to keep a proper look-out, or of the neglect of any precaution which may be required by the ordinary practice of seamen, or by the special circumstances of the case.

Reservation of Rules for Harbours and Inland Navigation.

Article 30. Nothing in these Rules shall interfere with the operation of a special rule, duly made by local authority, relative to the navigation of any harbour, river, or inland

waters.

Distress Signals.

   Article 31. When a vessel is in distress and requires assistance from other vessels or from the shore, the following shall be the signals to be used or displayed by her, either together or separately, viz. :-

In the daytime

1. A gun or other explosive signal fired at intervals of about a minute;

2. The International Code signal of distress indicated by NC;

3. The distant signal, consisting of a square flag, having either above or below it a

ball or anything resembling a ball;

4. A continuous sounding with any fog-signal apparatus.

At night-

1. A gun or other explosive signal fired at intervals of about a minute;

2. Flames on the vessel (as from a burning tar-barrel, oil-barrel, &c.);

3. Rockets or shells, throwing stars of any colour or description, fired one at a time,

at short intervals;

4. A continuous soundling with any fog-signal apparatus.

DOWNING STREET,

19th December, 1910.

    SIR, I have the honour to inform you that my attention has been called to the increasing frequency of applications for exemption from Colonial Regulation No. 46, respect- ing the acceptance by Colonial Officers of valuable presents.

2. That Regulation was based on motives of sound policy; and it must be obvious that it would be detrimental to the best interests of the Public Service if a regular practice of offering presents to public officers were established. Whether the presents came from official or unofficial sources there would be the same probability of the imputation of ulterior motives; and there would be a constant impression that officials were influenced by con- siderations other than those which alone should weigh with them in the discharge of their duties.

3. In these circumstances I desire it to be clearly understood that applications for exemption from the Regulation will not be entertained unless they are made in very exceptional circumstances.

   No. 44.-The attention of all persons who consume white rice and also of all large employers of coolie labour is directed to the fact that it is generally believed that the disease Beri-beri, which causes several hundred deaths in Hongkong each year, is produced by the consumption of white rice, as the staple article of diet, without a sufficiency of other foods.

   It is important therefore that a sufficient quantity of fresh mau or of fresh fish should be eaten with the rice, but if this cannot be afforded beans should be eaten, in the propor- tion of not less than one quarter of a catty of beans to every catty of rice. The beans shouid be boiled with a small quantity of fresh pork or fresh fish to make a soup.

DOWNING STREET,

3rd June, 1911.

SIR, I have the honour to inform you that from cases which have come before me it would appear that the rules relating to the acceptance of literary and other compositions by His Majesty the King might with advantage be more generally known in his oversea posses-

sions.

2. It is a fixed rule that His Majesty cannot accept any composition which is in manu- script, and in any case in which you may be asked to forward such a composition to His Majesty you should return it to the sender with an intimation that you are unable to comply with his request, in view of the standing rules on this subject.

3. It is not the custom of the King to accept the dedication of any work unless it is composed by a person who is known to His Majesty or of recognised standing in the literary world, and you should reply accordingly to any application for permission to dedicate a work to His Majesty.

The Officer Administering the Government of

L. HARCOURT.

The King has been pleased to command that the following Regulations respecting Foreign

Orders and Medals shall be substituted for those hitherto in force :-

1. It is the King's wish that no subject of His Majesty shall wear the Insignia of any Foreign Order without having previously obtained His Majesty's permission to do so, signi- fied either:--

(a.) By Warrant under the Royal Sign-Manual, or

b.) By private permission conveyed through His Majesty's Private Secretary.

2. Permission given by Warrant under the Royal Sign-Manual will enable the Insignia of the Foreign Order to be worn at all times and without any restriction.

Private permission will only enable the Insignia to be worn on the occasions specified in the terms of the letter from the King's Private Secretary conveying the Royal Sanction.

3. The full and unrestricted permission by Warrant under the Royal Sign-Manual is designed, subject to the exception mentioned in Rule 4 (a) respecting British Naval or Military Officers during hostilities. to meet cases where the Decoration may be said to have been earned by some valuable service rendered to the Head of the State conferring it, or to the State itself. The private or restricted permission is contemplated for Decorations which are more or less of a complimentary character. In either case, the matter will be submitted to the King by His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.

4. Full and unrestricted permission by Warrant under the Royal Sign-Manual is con- templated in the following cases :-

For a Decoration conferred-

(a.) On an Officer in His Majesty's Naval or Military Forces lent to a Foreign Government; on an Officer in His Majesty's Naval or Military Forces attached by his Government to a Foreign Navy or Army during hostilities; or on any British Official lent to a Foreign Government and not in receipt of any emoluments from British public funds during the period of such loan. (6.) On any person not at the time in the service of the Crown, who, while him- self outside the limits of His Majesty's Dominions, has rendered valuable services to the Head of the State conferring the Order, or to the State itself, within the period of two years immediately preceding the notification of the Decoration to His Majesty's Government provided for in Rule 5. The term "service of the Crown (supra) comprises any person holding a Royal Commission, or any person in receipt of a salary from public funds in the United Kingdom, or in any British Dominion, Colony, or Protect-

orate.

"1

(c.) On any British subject employed in a Foreign Embassy or Legation in the

United Kingdom.

5. The desire of the Head of a Foreign State to confer upon a British subject the Insignia of an Order, or the fact that he has done so, must be notified to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs either through the British Diplomatic Repre- sentative accredited to the Head of the Foreign State, or through his Diplomatic Represen- tative at the Court of St. James. His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs shall be under no obligation to consider claims that are not brought to his notice through one of these channels.

6. When His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs shall have taken the King's pleasure on any such application, and shall have obtained His Majesty's permission for the person in whose favour it has been made to wear the Insignia of a Foreign Order, he shall signify the same to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department in order that he may cause a Warrant, if it be a case for the issue of

Warrant as defined in Rule 4, to be prepared for the Royal Sign-Manual.

   When such Warrant shall have been signed by the King, a notification thereof shall be inserted in the Gazette, stating the service for which the Foreign Order has been conferred.

Persons in whose favour such Warrants are issued will be required to pay to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department a stamp duty of 10s.

The Warrant signifiying His Majesty's permission may, at the request and at the expense of the person who has obtained it, be registered in the College of Arms. Every such Warrant as aforesaid shall contain a clause providing that His Majesty's licence and permission does not authorise the assumption of any style, appellation, rank, prece lence, or privilege appertaining to a Knight Bachelor of His Majesty's Realms.

   7. When a British subject has received the Royal permission to accept the Decoration of a Foreign Order, he will, at any future time, be allowed to accept the Decoration of a higher class of the same Order, to which he may have become eligible by increase of rank in the Foreign Service, or in the service of his own country; or any, other distinctive mark of honour strictly consequent upon the acceptance of the original Decoration, and common to every person upon whom such Decoration is conferred.

   8. Medals which constitute a particular class of a Foreign Order are subject in all respects to the above Regulations in the same manner as higher grades of the Order, except that permission to wear will be given by Letter and not by Royal Warrant. The King's permission must be obtained for any other Medal to be worn. No permission is needed to accept a Foreign Medal if it is not intended to be worn.

   9. Naval and Military Attachés to His Majesty's Missions abroad may, at the termina- tion of their appointments, be given restricted private permission to wear, on certain specific occasions, the Insignia of a Foreign Order conferred upon them by the Chief of the State only in which their headquarters were situated.

In every case in which an allowance is made for time spent at a Marine Technical School, the candidate will be required to produce the Principal's Certificate for continuous and regular attendance at all the approved classes and for satisfactory progress.

The Council met pursuant to adjournment.

The Minutes of the last Meeting, held on the 1st June, 1911, were read and confirmed.

   NEW MEMBER.-Mr. BARNES took the Oath and assumed his seat as a Member of the Council.

QUESTION.-Mr. Ross, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions, in the absence of Mr. POLLOCK :--

1. Is it not a fact that, if the scheme of His Excellency the Governor for devoting half of the margin (i.e., half of the excess of Ordinary Revenue over Ordin- ary Expenditure exclusive of Military Contribution and Volunteers) to Military Contribution had come into force on the 1st January, 1904, the average annual saving to the Colony on such a scheme for the 7 years from 1904 to 1910 inclusive would only have amounted to about $75,380? If not, what other figure does the Government suggest as being correct?

2. Is it not the fact that, if the Colony had paid a fixed annual contribution of $1,000.000 during the said period of seven years, the average annual saving to the Colony would have been about $285,940? If not, what other figure does the Government suggest as being correct?

3. Is it not the fact that there is no prospect of the Expenditure of the Colony being decreased during the next few years if our necessary Public Works are to be begun and/or proceeded with with reasonable despatch?

264

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 7, 1911.

4. Will not such Expenditure involve the raising of a corresponding Revenue and the payment of a corresponding Military Contribution, if the present method of assessing the latter remains unaltered?

5. If the answer to Questions 3 and 4 is in the affirmative, must not the fixed con- tribution proposed by the Unofficial Members necessarily be advantageous to the ratepayers from a pecuniary point of view, both as compared with the present system and as compared with the half-margin scheme suggested by His Excellency the Governor!

6. Will the Government forward the above five Questions and Answers thereto to the Right Honourable the Secretary of State for the Colonies for his consideration in connection with the proposal of the Unofficial Members that the Military Contribution should be fixed at an annual sum of $1,000,000?

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

WHEREAS by section 10 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1906, power is given to His

Majesty by Order in Council to make Regulations as to the manner in which Government ships may be registered as British ships under the Merchant Shipping Acts:

    And whereas by the said section it is provided that those Acts shall, subject to any exceptions or modifications which may be made by Order in Council, either generally or as respects any special class of such ships, apply to such ships when registered in accordance with such Regulations:

And whereas the Admiralty will, by such Regulations as they shall from time to time deem fit to make, having regard to the interests of seamen in Government ships in the service of the Admiralty, and of the Public Service, provide for the payment of seamen's wages, advance and allotment of wages, and remittance of seamen's wages by money orders:

    And whereas the provisions of section 1 of the Rules Publication Act, 1893, have been complied with:

    Now, therefore, His Majesty, by virtue of the powers in this behalf by the said Act, or otherwise in Him vested, is pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to order, and it is hereby ordered, that the following Regulations shall have effect as regards any Government ships in the service of the Admiralty

1. An application for registry of a Government ship in the service of the Admiralty shall be made in writing under the hand of the Secretary or Assistant Secretary to the Lords Commissioners for executing the Office of Lord High Admiral of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (hereinafter called the Admiralty or the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty). Such application shall contain the following particulars :--

(i.) A statement of the name and description of the ship:

(ii.) A statement of the time when and place where the ship was built; or, if the ship was foreign built and the time and place of building are unknown, a state- ment to that effect and of her foreign name:

iii.) A statement of the nature of the title to the said ship, whether by original construction by or for the Admiralty, or by purchase, capture, condemnation, or otherwise, and a list of the documents of title, if any, in case she was not originally constructed by or for the Admiralty.

Upon the transfer of a registered Government ship in the service of the Admiralty by Bill of Sale, any two of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, in pursuance of section 6 of the Admiralty Act, 1832 (2 and 3 Wm. IV c. 40), shall be the transferors, and the Bill of Sale shall be in Form A. in the proper form prescribed under the principal Act, omitting the covenant therein contained.

   7. The tonnage of Government ships in the service of the Admiralty shall be ascertained in accordance with tonnage regulations to be made by the Board of Trade with the concurrence of the Admiralty; and wherever reference is made to tonnage regulations or to the ascertain- ment of tonnage thereby in any sections of the Merchant Shipping Acts which are applicable to Government ships, such sections shall be read with reference to Government ships as if the tonnage regulations made under this Order in Council were mentioned therein in lieu of the tonnage regulations mentioned in that Act and any schedules thereto.

   8. The term "seaman" in section 113 of the principal Act shall not be deemed to mean or include any seaman in His Majesty's Navy.

   9. Where a seaman is lost with a Government ship in the service of the Admiralty, the Admiralty may pay the wages due to him to the person entitled to receive the same.

   10. Whenever during the absence of any seaman on a voyage his wife or any of his children or step-children become chargeable to any union or parish in the United Kingdom, the Admiralty may in their discretion reimburse such union or parish out of the wages of the seaman earned during the voyage, any sums properly expended during his absence in the maintenance of those members of his family or any of them, provided that the Admiralty shall not, unless in their opinion such a course shall be warranted by exceptional circumstances, pay sums exceeding the following proportions of the seaman's wages, namely :--

(i.) If only one of those members be chargeable, one-half of the wages ; (ii.) If two or more of those members are chargeable, two-thirds of the wages. 11.

DESPATCHES FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE.

No. 221.

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET,

17th June, 1911.

SIR,-I have the honour to refer you to Mr. Chamberlain's Circular despatch of the 18th of December, 1897, and to inform you that it appears that the influence of Members of Parliament and others in this country is still sought by some officers in the Colonial Service as a means of bringing their services to the notice of the Secretary of State with a view to consideration for promotion.

2. The objection to such procedure is obvious, but, as it does not seem to be sufficiently realized in some quarters, I shall be glad if you will take steps to make it known again to public officers serving under your Government that this procedure is disapproved. Among other means this and the preceding circular should be published in the Gazette.

    3. Arrangements are in existence in this Office which ensure due consideration of the claims of all suitable officers on the occurrence of vacancies in the service. The attempts which have recently been made to obtain promotion by irregular means have not been of advantage to the officers concerned.

The Officer Administering the Government of

CIRCULAR.

I have, etc.,

L. HARCOURT.

HONGKONG.

DOWNING STREET,

18th December, 1897.

SIR,-Letters recommending Colonial officers for promotion or honours are received at this Office from so many correspondents, who appear to have been appealed to on the ground. of their supposed influence, but who have neither themselves been connected with the Colonial Service nor are in a position to judge of the merits of other candidates for similar promotion, that I am compelled to request you to make it known among such officers of your Government as it may be likely to affect, that I do not approve of the use of these means to influence my judgment, and that applications of this kind are by no means neces- sarily of advantage to the persons recommended in obtaining the fulfilment of their wishes.

2. I do not mean to suggest, however, that the great majority of Colonial officers have not already a perception of the drawbacks and the irregularity of the proceedings upon which I have felt it my duty to comment, and this should be stated in the communication which I have directed you to make to your officers on the subject.

3. It should also be stated that I have no wish to discourage direct applications from officers who desire promotion to particular appointments, or who consider that their services entitle them to promotion generally. Such applications will continue to receive my careful consideration, provided, of course, that, if the officer is in the Colony when he applies, the Colonial Regulations as to the transmission of correspondence through the Governor are complied with.

4. If an officer applies while on leave of absence in this country, the application will, when there is any occasion to do so, be referred to the Governor, unless there is a recent report respecting him on record in this Office; and in this connexion I have to call your attention to section 73 of the Colonial Regulations, in which it is laid down that every Governor shall make, once in each year, a confidential report on the claims of candidates for appointment or promotion whom he may consider to possess the necessary qualifications, in order that, when a vacancy occurs, the Secretary of State may have material over and above the immediate recommendation of the Governor, for judging how far the particular candidate recommended is on the whole the best qualified, and whether a candidate of proper qualifications is to be found in that or in any other Colony.

5. I regret to find that, with one or two exceptions, this rule has not of late years been observed, and that, in the case of some Colonies, promotion is therefore apt, occasionally, to go to the man who applies at the right moment rather than to those-possibly the more deserving--who do not press their own claims. In order to prevent such mistakes, I am anxious that the practice of making annual reports should be resuined. I need hardly say that you are not required to report upon the claims of every officer of your Government, which would be unnecessary and impracticable; but I see no reason why you should not be able to supply each year a report upon those officers whose claims to promotion either elsewhere or in the same Colony might reasonably be expected to come shortly under the consideration of the Secretary of State. It is chiefly in connexion with the transfer of officers from one Colony to another that these reports are wanted. In the Eastern Colonies the number of officers who may be desirous of such transfer, and whom it may be feasible to transfer, is compara- tively small. On the other hand, in the West African Colonies a very large proportion of the European officers are desirous of being transferred.

6. Subject to these remarks, I leave it to you to determine in the first instance what officers should be reported upon. It will be convenient, for the sake of uniformity, that the reports should be made out on the forms of which I enclose copies; and as far as possible they should be arranged under the heads mentioned in Lord Derby's Circular of the 4th December, 1884,* a copy of which is enclosed, and which need not any longer be treated as confidential. The reports should be sent to me in the first instance as soon as possible after the receipt of this despatch, and in future they should be taken in hand immediately after the annual estimates have been passed and should be despatched so as to reach the Colonial Office as early after the beginning of January as may be practicable.

  I should be glad also if you would invariably require officers who may be applicants for promotion to fill in, in the first place, a form of particulars similar to that now transmitted.
