FINDING.

We find that the charge against Mr. Hubert Porter, of being asleep on watch on the night of the 12th February, 1913, proved. There appears to be no defence. There is no evidence of his having been under the influence of liquor or of his having been overworked. The offence appears to have been deliberately committed. We therefore suspend his certifi- cate as second mate for one year.

Given under our hands in Victoria, Hongkong, this 24th day of February, 1913.

We find that Mr. William Massey McGhee, second mate of the British S.S. Laertës, official number 81318 of Hongkong, the number of whose certificate of competency as second mate is 2924 Hongkong, was guilty of serious misconduct on board the said ship, insomuch that, on the 9th April, 1913, the ship being at the time at Saigon, he sent an insulting letter to the mate of the said ship, by means of which he attempted to create bad feeling between the master and mate, he having appended a colourable imitation of the said master's signature to the said letter. That on the 13th April, 1913, the ship being at the time at Saigon, and on the point of sailing, he did leave the said ship without permission, returning on board drunk, and then created a disturbance by using threatening and abusive language to the master and mate. That no evidence has been adduce l in support of the third charge.

In consideration of Mr. McGhee's previous record, we adjudge him to have his certifi- cate of competency as second mate cancelled.

No. 168.--The following correspondence is published for general information.

A. M. THOMSON,

30th May, 1913.

Colonial Secretary.

Circular. No. 12.

233

From His Majesty's Minister to Mr. Jamieson.

May 12th, 1913.

SIR,With reference to my Circular No. 2 of January 24th last, I transmit to you herewith translation of a further Memorandum from the Wai Chiao Pu concerning contracts for the purchase of munitions of war.

You will observe that evidence of the consent of the Minister of War is required to render legal any such contracts.

I would request you to bring this communication to the notice of British merchants residing within your district.

Translation.

Memo.

I am, &c.,

J. N. JORDAN.

May 7th, 1913.

   The Wai Chiao Pu have the honour to inform H.M. Minister that the following letter has been received from the Ministry of War :-

"Owing to the fact that there were no limits placed on the purchase of arms, which was going on promiscuously, two abbreviated rules for the purchase of arms were made and, on the 18th December of last year, published for observance by the various provinces and military forces; the rules were also inserted in the Gazette of the 21st of that month. Information has now been received that foreign merchants at various places are continuing their illegal sales of arms and ammunition, even including large quantities. of rifles and guns, etc.; farther, that arrangements have been made before- hard for this war material to be handed over outside port limits, in order that the import may be conducted secretly. If such actions be not nipped in the bud, it is impossible to foretell their evil consequences. The Head of the Department concerned has now been instructed to inform foreign merchants by letter that in future war materials. purchased in any part of China are not to be delivered unless evidence of the consent of this Ministry is forthcoming. The latter, however, fears that, owing to the way in which merchants consider nothing else but their own profit, there may be difficulty in carrying out this order, and will be glad if you will ask the Diplomatic Body at Peking to order all foreign merchants in future not to carry out illegal orders for the purchase of war material."

The abbreviated rules were enclosed in the letter from the Ministry of War.

At the present time people's minds are disturbed by the unsettled situation. In the Wai Chiao Pu's opinion war material is an extremely dangerous class of goods, and (trade therein) should be severely circumscribed. The Ministry has therefore the honour to forward to His Excellency copies of the two abbreviated rules laid down by the Ministry of War, and to request him to inform foreign merchants thereof. In future when orders for the purchase of war material are given, evidence of the Ministry of War's consent is necessary; no illegal deliveries are permitted in order that due care may be exercised and hidden misfortune avoided. The Ministry deems that His Excellency will be happy to give his assistance, in order to assist in preserving the public peace, and trusts that he will reply.

Enclosure.

(Seal of the Minister of Foreign Affairs.)

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 30, 1913.

Enclosure in Memo from the Wai Chiao Pu dated May 7th, 1913.

Two ABBREVIATED RULES.

1. When any province purchases rifles, guns, ammunition, implements (of military use) or materials, the Tu Tu shall first be requested to send the draft agreement to the Ministry. Only after the latter's reply authorizing the purchase has been received may the agreement be ratified and money paid over. The Ministry will inform the Revenue Council, which shall instruct the Custom House concerned to examine and release the material ordered, while the Tu Tu shall issue a permit permitting its import. Where an order has been given without the consent of the Ministry, order to release the material will not be given.

2. When military forces directly under the Ministry of War need rifles, guns, ammuni- tion, implements (of military use) or materials to make up their requirements, the class of material required and its quantity shall first be reported to the Ministry, and the advance of money to purchase it shall be awaited, or the military force concerned will be instructed to give the order for the purchase itself, as the case may be. Prior to such order being given the draft agreement shall be sent to the Ministry; only after the latter's reply approv- ing of the purchase has been received is it permitted to actually ratify (the agreement). Except by following the above procedure military forces are forbidden to purchase war material on their own motion.

BRITISH LEGATION, PEKING, May 13th, 1913.

    SIR,-With reference to my Circular No. 26 of December 3rd last, I transmit to you herewith translation of a further Memorandum from the Wai Chiao Pu on the subject of foreign Loans.

You will observe that the Chinese Government decline to recognise any loans by public or private bodies in any part of China from foreign merchants, in which railways or mines which are the property of the State are given as security, without the consent of the Central Government having been obtained.

I would request you to bring this communication to the notice of British merchants residing within your district.

His Majesty's Consul-General, Canton.

Translation. Note.

I am, &c.,

J. N. JORDAN.

May 6th, 1913.

SIR, I have the honour to observe that the late Manchu Government and that of the Republic have on many occasions informed the Diplomatic Body that in cases where foreign loans are made, whether by provincial officials for public requirements, or by merchants for undertaking railways or mines, the consent of the Central Government must be obtained, and the latter will officially inform the Diplomatic Body for purposes of record, and further, that the foreign merchant making the loan must first inform his Minister at Peking who will enquire whether the loan has the consent of the Chinese Government, only after which may the loan actually be paid over.

On the 30th November of last year a Presidential Order was received stating that it was essential that our financial plans should form an united whole, and that in future all matters concerning loans should come under the direction of the Minister of Finance. On the 2nd December the contents of this Order were communicated to all the Ministers at Peking and they were requested to inform merchants of their respective nationalities.

It is evident that the object of the Chinese Government in making the above repeated declarations as to the method of contracting loans throughout the country was, not merely to secure the solidity of our internal finances, but to protect the interests of foreign mer-

chants who might advance money: this should be credited by all foreign merchants. I have now the honour again to declare that the Government will refuse to recognise any loans by public or private bodies in any part of China from foreign merchants in which railways or mines which are public property are given as security, for which the consent of the Cen- tral Government has not been obtained, and this whether or no an agreement has been drawn up. Where cases of this sort occur and foreign merchants as a result suffer financial losses, the Government will not undertake the responsibility of obtaining compensation for them.

  I have the honour to communicate this to Your Excellency, and to request you to instruct merchants of your nationality, in order that they may strictly observe the Regulations laid down. By doing so you will assist in the maintenance of friendly relations.

FRANCIS HENRY MAY,

Governor.

By His Excellency Sir FRANCIS HENRY MAY, Knight Commander of the Most Distin- guished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the Colony of Hongkong and its Dependencies and Vice-Admiral of the same.

Whereas by the Military Stores (Prohibition of Exportation) Ordinance, 1862, it is enacted that it should be lawful for His Excellency the Governor, by and with the advice of the Executive Council, by Proclamation to be published in the Hongkong Government Gazette or in any Extraordinary Gazette, to prohibit, for such period as should be mentioned in such Proclamation, either to be exported from the Colony of Hongkong, or to be carried coastwise within the said Colony (amongst other things) Arms, Ammunition, Gunpowder, and Military and Naval Stores, and any articles which His Excellency may judge capable of being converted into or made useful in increasing the quantity of Military or Naval Stores, or any or either of such Arms, Ammunition, Gunpowder, Stores, Goods or Articles respect- ively, subject to any permission that may be obtained under Section 3 of the Ordinance:

And whereas, by various Proclamations issued from time to time, such exportation and carriage coastwise were prohibited, and remain prohibited until the 27th day of May, 1913, and it is expedient to continue such prohibition:

Now, therefore, I, Sir FRANCIS HENRY WAY, Knight Commander of the Most Dis- tinguished Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the Colony of Hongkong and its Dependencies and Vice-Admiral of the same, by and with the advice of the Executive Council of this Colony, do, by this Proclamation, prohibit for a further period of one year from and including the 28th day of May, 1913, either to be exported from the Colony of Hongkong, or to be carried coastwise within the said Colony, Arms, Ammunition, Gunpowder, Military and Naval Stores, Sulphur and Saltpetre, the last two being articles which I judge capable of being converted into or made useful in increasing the quantity of Military or Naval Stores, or any or either of such Arms, Ammunition, Gunpowder, Stores, Goods or Articles respectively, unless this Proclamation shall, in the meantime, be revoked, or, unless permission shall have been obtained under Section 3 of the Ordinance above mentioned.

The Court finds that the charges of misconduct preferred against Mr. John Taite Naylor, 2nd Mate of the British S.S. Foochow, the number of whose certificate of competency as Master is 034,314 Cardiff, proved, insomuch that (1st) on the 21st June, 1913, he came on board the said ship at 8.10 p.m. under the influence of liquor, and created a disturbance which caused an attack to be made upon him by the Chinese crew, which might have had serious results; (2nd) that on the night of the 7th July, 1913, being officer in charge of the bridge, he wilfully disobeyed the orders of the Master and Mate of the said ship, by neglect- ing to take a four point bearing of the Karang Koko Light; and, when ordered by the Master to leave the bridge, refused to do so.

    We therefore direct that his certificate of competency be suspended for two calendar months.
