DOWNING STREET,

22nd December, 1913.

 SIR,-I have the honour to transmit to you for your information a copy of a despatch which has been received by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs from His Majesty's Minister at Lisbon reporting certain modifications in the customs tariff of the Province of Timor..

LISBON,

22nd November, 1913.

 SIR, I have the honour to report that by a decree No. 227 published in the official gazette of the 18th instant, and dated the same day, the customs tariff of the Province of Timor is modified as follows:-

 Article 1.-Fresh fruit, ice and live domestic animals for food, imported through the Timor Customs House :-To be free of duty.

Article 2.-The duty of $2.52 (say 10 shillings) on each picul of 62 kilogrammes of coffee exported is maintained.

 Article 3.--Wax, sandalwood, sandal-root, and all other products will henceforth pay an export duty of 10% ad valorem.

§1. The duty established by the Decree of September 20th, 1906, with regard to the export of minerals, will remain in force.

The preamble to the Decree explains the remission of the import duties (Article 1) as rendered expedient by the fact that the imports in question are free of duty in other Portuguese Colonial possessions. As regards Article 3 the object in view is to maintain the principle of substituting an ad valorem tax for the specific duty. Finally it is stated. that the agricultural and commercial development of the province has entailed heavier expenditure by the State in regard to the administrative services including the Customs.

I have, etc.,

CHAP. 48.

An Act respecting Pelagic Sealing.

[Assented to 6th June, 1913.]

HIS Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate and House of

Η

Commons of Canada, enacts as follows :-

1. If any person uses any port within Canada for the purpose of equipping any ship intended to be used or employed in killing, taking or hunting seals in contravention of any order made by His Majesty The King in Council under the provisions of the Acts passed by the Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, known and cited as the "Seal Fisheries (North Pacific) Acts," 1895 and 1912, he shall be guilty of an offence and liable on indictment to a fine or to two years' imprisonment, or on summary conviction to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months with or without hard labour or to a fine not exceeding five hundred dollars, and the ship and her equipment and everything on board thereof shall be liable to forfeiture to His Majesty.

2. If the Minister of Customs is satisfied that there is reasonable cause for believing that a ship has been or is being equipped contrary to this section, the Minister of Customs may authorise the seizure and detention of the ship. Where such an authority is given, any commissioned officer of His Majesty's Navy, or any officer of the Customs or of the Fisheries Protection Service or person em- ployed as such or any stipendiary magistrate on board of any cruiser or vessel belonging to or in the service of the Government of Canada and employed in the services of protecting the customs or fisheries may seize and detain the ship and bring her for adjudication before the Exchequer Court of Canada on its Admiralty side or before any superior court in the province in or near which the ship was seized, and the court may thereupon adjudge the ship with her tackle, apparel and furniture to be forfeited to His Majesty and make such order in the case as to the court seems just and may award to the officer bringing in the ship for adjudication such portion of the proceeds of the sale of the ship or any share therein as the court may see fit. Any such officer as in this subsection mentioned shall not be responsible either civilly or criminally to any person whomsoever in respect of any such seizure or detention as aforesaid notwithstanding that the ship has not been brought in for adjudication, or if so brought in is declared not liable to forfeiture if it is shown to the satisfaction of the court before which any trial relating to such ship or such seizure or detention is held that there were reasonable grounds for such seizure and detention, but if no such grounds are shown the court may award costs and damages to any party aggrieved and make such other order in the premises as the court thinks just.

3. For the purpose of this Act, "equipping" in relation to a ship shall include the furnishing of a ship with any tackle, apparel, furniture, provisions, munitions, fuel or stores or any other thing which is used in or about a ship for the purpose of fitting or adapting her for the sea or for killing, taking or hunting seals.

2. The importation into Canada is prohibited of skins of seals taken in con- travention of any such order as aforesaid and skins of seals identified as being of the species known as Callorhinus alascanus, Callorhinus ursinus and Callorhinus kurilensis, and belonging to the American, Russian and Japanese herds, except such as are taken under the authority of the respective Powers to which the breed- ing grounds of such herds belong and have been officially marked and certified as having been so taken, and any such skins if imported into Canada shall thereby Seizure and become forfeited to His Majesty and may be seized by any customs or fish forfeiture. officer and shall be destroyed or otherwise dealt with as the Minister of Custo

THE FOREIGN MARRIAGES ORDER IN COUNCIL, 1913.

AT THE COURT AT WINDSOR CASTLE,

THE 22ND DAY OF NOVEMBER, 1913. *

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY

EARL SPENCER

LORD STAMFORDHAM

LORD EMMOTT.

HEREAS by "The Foreign Marriage Act, 1892," His Majesty the King in Council

is authorized to make Regulations for the purposes therein specified :

And whereas the provisions of Section 1 of "The Rules Publication Act, 1893," have been complied with in respect of the Regulations hereinafter set forth:

   Now, therefore, His Majesty, by virtue and in exercise of the powers conferred by "The Foreign Marriage Act, 1892," or otherwise enabling Him in this behalf, is pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to order, and it is hereby ordered, as follows:-

   1.-(1) Where a marriage according to the local law of a foreign country is valid by English law, then before the marriage is solemnized in that country under the Foreign Marriage Act the marriage officer must be satisfied either-

(a) That both the parties are British subjects; or

(b) If only one of the parties is a British subject, that the other is not a subject

or citizen of the country; or

(c) If one of the parties is a British subject and the other a subject or citizen of the country, that sufficient facilities do not exist for the solemnization of the marriage in the foreign country in accordance with the law of that country; or

(d) If the man about to be married is a British subject and the woman a subject or citizen of the country, that no objection will be taken by the authorities of the country to the solemnization of the marriage under the Foreign Marriage Act.

(2) If a marriage officer, by reason of anything in this article, refuses to solemnize or* allow to be solemnized in his presence the marriage of any person requiring such marriage to be solemnized, that person shall have the same right of appeal to a Secretary of State as is given by section 5 of the Foreign Marriage Act.

2. In the case of any marriage under the Foreign Marriage Act, if it appears to the marriage officer that the woman about to be married is a British subject, and that the man is a foreigner, he must be satisfied-

(a) That the marriage will be recognized by the law of the country to which the

foreigner belongs; or

(b) That some other marriage ceremony, in addition to that under the Foreign Marriage Act, has taken place, or is about to take place, between the parties, and that such other ceremony is recognized by the law of the country to which the foreigner belongs; or

(c) That the leave of the Secretary of State has been obtained.

3. For the purpose of the Foreign Marriage Act and these Regulations, the house in which a British Ambassador resides in the foreign country to the Government of which he is accredited, or which is occupied by him in that country for the purposes of his embassy, shall be deemed to be the official house of such Ambassador, and is in these Regulations referred to as the embassy house, and every place within the precincts or curtilage of any such house, and any church or chapel annexed to such house, or for the time being used with the consent of the Government to which the Ambassador is accredited as the chapel thereof, shall be deemed to form part of the embassy house.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 27, 1914.

61

  For the purpose of marriages in an embassy house, the expression "office," when used with respect to the place where any act or thing shall or may be done, shall be construed to refer to such part of the embassy house as the Ambassador may from time to time appoint as being sufficiently accessible to the public..

  4. The person before and by whom a marriage under the Foreign Marriage Act may be solemnized and registered in an embassy house in a foreign country shall either be the Ambassador or any member of the diplomatic service not below the rank of secretary, who is attached to the embassy, and who is from time to time appointed for the purpose in writing by the Ambassador; and for the purpose of marriages solemnized in such embassy house, such Ambassador or member of the diplomatic service shall, without any marriage -warrant, be a marriage officer.

5. Where a marriage can be solemnized at a British consulate in a foreign country, the leave of the Ambassador shall be obtained before the marriage is solemnized in the embassy house in that country.

6. For the purpose of marriages to be solemnized by or before a consular officer who is a marriage officer, every place within the curtilage or precincts of the house in which such officer is for the time being resident, or of the building which is for the time being used for the purpose of his office, shall be part of the official house of such marriage officer, and every place to which the public have ordinary access in such official house shall be deemed to be part of the office of such marriage officer.

7.-(1) The modifications contained in articles 8 to 17 of these Regulations of the re- quirements of the Foreign Marriage Act as to residence and notice shall have effect in cases where both parties have not dwelt within the district of the marriage officer by or before whom the intended marriage is to be solemnized.

(2) Where the provisions of these Regulations as to residence and notice have been complied with, or where the permission of the Secretary of State has been given, the marriage may be solemnized under the said Act in the official house of a marriage officer.

8. Where one party only has resided for a period of not less than one week within the district of the marriage officer by or before whom the intended marriage is to be solemnized, notice shall be given by that party to such marriage officer. The notice shall state the particulars, and be in the form given in Form No. 1 of the Schedule to this Order.

9. If the non-resident party has dwelt in a place in the United Kingdom, notice shall be given by that party in like manner and on payment of the like fee as if that party were about to be married in that place, and in England or Ireland shall be given to the Superin- tendent Registrar or Registrar, and in Scotland shall be given by proclamation of banns; and the Superintendent Registrar or Registrar shall deal with the notice and give a certificate for marriage in like manner and on payment of the like fee as in the case of a marriage in his district and the Session Clerk of the parish in which the banns were proclaimed in Scotland shall, in like manner and on payment of the like fee as in the case of a marriage in his district, give a certificate of proclamation of such banns.

10. If the non-resident party has dwelt in any part of His Majesty's dominions outside the British Islands, notice shall be given by that party-

(a) In accordance with any law of that part of His Majesty's dominions or, in the case of India, of the Governor-General of India in Council, as the case may be, giving effect to these Regulations, or to any repealed or future Order in Council under the Foreign Marriage Act; or

(6) In like manner as if the party were about to be married in that place; and a certificate by a marriage registrar or other like officer, of the giving of such notice, shall be obtained by such party, subject always to the law in force permitting of such notice being given and to the said officer being empowered to issue such certificate.

 11. A law enacted by the Governor-General of India in Council or by the Parliament or Legislature of any part of His Majesty's dominions outside the British Islands other than British India shall be deemed to give effect to these Regulations or to any repealed or future Order in Council under the Foreign Marriage Act if it makes provision (in whatever terms expressed) as follows:-

62

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 27, 1914.

(1) That a notice of a marriage intended to be solemnized under the Foreign Marriage Act may be given by one of the parties intending such marriage who has had his or her usual place of abode for a period of not less than one week immediately preceding in some place in India or in such part of His Majesty's dominions (as the case may be) to such marriage registrar or other officer as may be designated by the law in this behalf

(2) That such notice shall be published either by proclamation of banns or in

such other manner as the law may provide ; and

(3) That such marriage registrar or other officer, unless he is aware of any impediment or objection which should obstruct the solemnization of the marriage, shall, on payment of such fee, if any, as the law may provide, give a certificate that the said notice has been so given and published as aforesaid.

12. If the non-resident party has dwelt in the district of a marriage officer in a foreign country, notice shall be given by that party and entered and posted up by the marriage officer in the manner and during the period provided by the Foreign Marriage Act, in like manner as if the marriage were to be solemnized by or before such marriage officer, and such marriage officer shall, on payment of the proper fee, give a certificate that the notice has been so given and posted up, and that he is unaware of any impediment which should obstruct the solemnization of the marriage.

    13. If the place in a foreign country at which the non-resident party has dwelt is not within the district of a marriage officer, the notice to be given by that party may be given to any person author zed by the Secretary of State to receive such notices; and such person may receive, enter, and post up such notice and give a certificate that the notice has been so given and posted up and that he is unaware of any impediment, as if he were a marriage officer.

    14. Where neither party has resided for a period of not less than one week within the district of the marriage officer by or before whom the intended marriage is to be solemnized and (a) the marriage cannot conveniently be solemnized under the Foreign Marriage Act at the place where either of the parties has had his or her usual place of abode, or (b) the permission of the Secretary of State has been obtained, notice shall be given by each of the parties in the place where he or she has had his or her usual place of abode for a period of not less than one week immediately preceding the giving of such notice in the manner provided by articles 9 to 13 of these Regulations and a certificate of the giving of such notice shall be obtained, and one of the parties shall give or transmit to the marriage officer by or before whom the marriage is to be solemnized a notice stating the particulars and in the form given in Form No. 1 of the Schedule to these Regulations, and the marriage officer, if satisfied that the marriage cannot conveniently be solemnized under the Foreign Marriage Act at the place where either of the parties has had his or her usual place of abode or that the permission of the Secretary of State has been obtained, may accept the notice as if both parties had been resident within his district.

    15. Where the Secretary of State is satisfied that for some good cause a party to an intended marriage has not been able to comply with the requirements of these Regulations as to notice, and is satisfied that the intended marriage is not clandestine, and that adequate notice has been given, he may give permission for the intended marriage to be solemnized.

    16. In cases falling under articles 8 to 15 of these Regulations the oath, affirmation or declaration under section 7 of the Foreign Marriage Act shall in addition to the matters specified in sub-sections (a) and (c) of that section state the place where each of the parties has had his or her usual place of abode, and the notice, if any, which has been given in that place, or to the marriage officer.

    17. At or before the time when a non-resident party appears before the marriage officer and makes the oath under section 7 of the Foreign Marriage Act, he or she shall, unless the marriage is solemnized with the permission of the Secretary or State, give or transmit to the marriage officer the certificate that the notice prescribed by these Regulations has been given at the place where such party has had his or her usual place of abode.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 27, 1914.

63

  18.-(1) A marriage solemnized in accordance with the local law of a foreign country shall not be registered under section 18 of the Foreign Marriage Act, except by a consular officer, who is a marriage officer, or is for the time being authorized by the Secretary of State to register such marriages.

(2) A consular officer shall not be required to satisfy himself by personal attendance that a marriage has been duly solemnized in accordance with the local law unless the mar- riage is solemnized at the place where he is appointed to reside, or unless the proper fee has been previously paid to him.

  (3) The consular officer shall forthwith, after he has by personal attendance satisfied himself as to the solemnization of the marriage, register the marriage in duplicate in books. furnished to him for the purpose by the Registrar-General through a Secretary of State separate from any register books provided for marriages solemnized by him, and shall register the same in accordance with section 9 of the Foreign Marriage Act, save that if the person by whom the marriage has been solemnized declines to sign the same, the consular officer shall enter the name of that person, and the fact that he declines to sign the same.

  (4) The consular officer shall transmit copies and the certificate and the book when filled in manner provided by section 10 of the Foreign Marriage Act.

  (2) If a Secretary of State gives such authority, or, in pursuance of the said section, authorizes any High Commissioner, Resident, or other officer outside His Majesty's dominions, not being an Ambassador or a consular officer, to be a marriage officer, then, for the purpose of marriages solemnized and registered by or before any High Commissioner, Resident, or officer, or person so authorized, expressions in the Foreign Marriage Act shall be construed as follows:-

(a) Expressions referring to the district of a marriage officer shall be construed to refer to the district for which such High Commissioner, Resident, officer, or person is authorized to act for the purpose of the Foreign Marriage Act. (b) The expression "official house of a marriage officer" shall be construed to refer to the building or part of a building or place specified in the document by which he is authorized to act.

(c) The expression "office", when used with respect to the place at which any act or thing shall or may be done, shall be construed to refer to such portion of the building, part, or place so specified as is ordinarily accessible to the public.

  20.-(1) Marriages, under the Foreign Marriage Act, on board one of His Majesty's vessels may be solemnized by or before a commanding officer of such rank and of such vessel as is for the time being authorized for that purpose by or in pursuance of any Ad- miralty instructions; and for the purpose of any such marriages a commanding officer so authorized shall, without any written warrant, be a marriage officer, and for the purpose of such marriages expressions in the Foreign Marriage Act shall be construed as follows:-

(a) Expressions referring to a district of a marriage officer shall be construed to refer to such parts of the foreign station to which the commanding officer is attached as may be specified in that behalf by Admiralty instructions. (b) The expression "official house of a marriage officer" shall be construed to

refer to the vessel of the said commanding officer.

(c) The expression "office", when used with respect to the place where any act or thing shall or may be done, shall be construed to refer to the part of the ship on which public notices are affixed.

  (3) The requirements of the Foreign Marriage Act as to residence and notice shall be modified as follows, namely, not less than three weeks' notice of the intended marriage must have been given in such public manner, or to such relatives or friends of the parties, as satisfies the commanding officer that as much notice of the intended marriage has been given

as would be given if the marriage took place in England, and that the marriage is not clandestine.

    21. The forms in the Schedule to this Order, or forms to the like effect, shall be used in all cases to which they are applicable.

   22. In these Regulations the expression "Ambassador" includes Minister and chargé d'affaires; "embassy" includes legation; "consular officer" includes a consul-general, con- sul, vice-consul, pro-consul, consular-agent, and any person for the time being authorized to discharge the duties of consul-general, consul, vice-consul, or consular agent; "British Islands "British India", and "India" have the same respective meanings as are given to these expressions by section 18 of the Interpretation Act, 1889.

COLONIAL SECRETARY'S DEPARTMENT.

No. 89. The following particulars of a fraud commonly known as the "Spanish Swindle" and practised by a gang of thieves in Spain, who are still endeavouring to victimise residents in the British Colonies, are published for general information :-

"This time-honoured fraud continues to be practised upon the unwary by a gang of ingenious swindlers established in Madrid and other Spanish towns. Assisted by accomplices in England they single out their victims and extract money from them by means of a letter which is generally to the following effect :

A Spanish prisoner who is dying in a military prison desires to provide for his only daughter. He possesses a large fortune secreted somewhere, and offers to transfer it to his correspondent if the latter will maintain and educate the child. Certain obligations, however, must first be discharged, and for this purpose about £100 is to be forwarded in bank-notes to a given address where the prison chaplain will receive the sum and escort the girl to England. The fortune will then be handed over. The story is usually supported by forged documents and newspaper cuttings.'

Persons receiving such letters would do well to communicate with His Majesty's Embassy in Madrid.

Tai Lee Official Number 133,248 of Hongkong the master of which was JAMES WILLOX, certificate No. 036,321 of Aberdeen, as master, left their respective wharves in Hongkong Harbour within five minutes of each other on the morning of 29th March, 1914, bound for Macao. That after passing the rock in Cheung Chau Channel, the Tai Lee overtook and passed the Tai Shan, in such a manner as to place both ships in danger of collision.

We are of opinion that the master of the Tai Lee passed dangerously close to the Tai Shan, and admonish him to be more careful in future.

FINDING.

CLAUD SEVERn,

Colonial Secretary.

We find that the British S.S. Tai On Official Number 95,858 of Hongkong of which ROBERT HENRY WETHERELL, the Number of whose Certificate of Competency as Master is 08,651 of London, was Master, left Hongkong at 7 p.m. on the 27th April, 1914, on a voyage to Kong Mun, with a general cargo of about 100 tons, 395 passengers, of whom only 363 paid any fares and a crew of 38.

   At about 10.10 p.m. the ship being then off the Island of Ki Au, near the Swashway entrance to the West River, some of the passengers, who had embarked at Hongkong rose and attempted to gain possession of the ship, being armed with Mauser and Browning pistols. They attacked the bridge, where the Master, Mate, Chief Engineer, and two armed Portuguese guards were entrenched behind iron and barbed wire grilles and loopholed bullet proof shields, who were able to repel the attack, after shooting several of their assailants, with loss on their side of one-the Chief Engineer-slightly wounded.

   The pirates then retreated below, and endeavoured to persuade some of the peaceful passengers to go up and call upon the Master to surrender and, upon their refusal to do so, shot them. They then deliberately set the ship on fire in two or three places. This was about 11 o'clock.

   In the meanwhile the Officers, in the intervals of fighting, fired distress signals- rockets, bombs, and coloured lights, which were seen and answered by the British Steamers Shun Lee, Shiu On, and Hoi Sang, which were on their way down the river, bound for Hongkong, and by the Chinese S.S. Wo Kwai, bound for Kong Mun. These four ships rendered all assistance in their power, and succeeded in rescuing some 165 persons by means of their boats.

162

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 8, 1914.

The flames spread rapidly, and the ship was shortly ablaze from stem to stern, the passengers, including pirates, and crew, juinping over-board: many, however, appear to have been unable to escape, and were burnt.

   The anchor was let go to bring the ship's head to wind, but the officers soon found the bows untenable, and had to jump also, the Master being the last to leave the ship. They were picked up, with the exception of the Mate, Mr. F. C. Evans, who was unable to secure a lifebelt, the fire having reached his cabin when he went to get one.

The ship was completely gutted, but was subsequently towed back to Hongkong, when the charred remains of 17 bodies were found on board, besides evidences of many more, almost totally consumed by the flames.

   We find that no blame attaches to any of the certificated officers, who took all possible steps to secure the safety of the ship, and conducted the defence of the bridge most gallantly. The means adopted for the protection of the bridge appear to have been most efficient.

   We are of opinion that the conduct of the Master of the British S.S. Lintan in failing to stand by the Tai On or to render her any assistance, requires further enquiry, as does that of the Master of the On Lee who similarly failed.

   We also wish to point out the irregularity, and very probable source of danger, of the practice, which seems to be universal on board vessels on this run, of carrying an unlimited number of passenger runners, cargo brokers, and live stock attendants, who pay no fare, and are commonly supposed to form an intelligence department for the pirates.

    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, 1914, and it is expedient to continue such prohibition:

    Now, therefore, I, Sir FRANCIS HENRY MAY, 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, 1914, 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 capate 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. •

91. The sender of any registered article may obtain an acknowledgment of its delivery to the addressee by paying in advance at the time of posting a fee of 10 cents in addition to the postage and registration fee. The sender must enter in the form provided for the purpose both his own name and address and the name and address of the person to whom the packet is sent, and he must also affix to the form a stamp or stamps of the value of 10 cents in payment of the fee.

92. Letters shall be accepted for registration at the General Post Office, at the Kowloon, Sheung Wan (Western) and Sai Ying Pun District Offices, and any other District Offices established by the Governor.

93. Every article to be registered must be given to an officer or agent of the Post Office and a receipt obtained for it. It must bear the name and address of the sender on the lower left-hand corner of the face of the cover.

If contrary to this Regulation an article bearing the word "Registered" or any other word, phrase, or mark to the like effect, or a registration envelope intended by the sender to go forward as an ordinary letter, be dropped into a letter box it will if directed to any place at which delivery can be made by Hongkong or its Agencies be compulsorily registered and charged on delivery with a registration fee of 20 cents.

94. All registered letters or packets on being redirected must be taken back to the Registration Department to be dealt with as registered, and must not be dropped into a letter-box as ordinary letters or packets. If brought later than the day (Sundays and public holidays not being counted) after delivery, a fresh registration fee as well as fresh postage will be required.

95. The Postmaster General shall make good the value of such correspondence if lost while passing through the post, to the extent of 50 francs in certain cases, provided :-

(a.) That the sender duly observed all the conditions of registration.

(b.) That the correspondence was secured in a reasonably strong envelope. (c.) That application was made to the Postmaster General immediately the loss was discovered, and within a year at the most from the date of posting such correspondence.

(d.) That the Postmaster General is satisfied the loss occurred whilst the corre- spondence was in the custody of the Hongkong Postal Administration, that it was not caused by any fault on the part of the sender; by destruction by fire, or shipwreck; nor by the dishonesty or negligence of any person not in the employment of the Hongkong Post Office.

   96. No compensation shall be paid for mere damage to fragile articles such as portraits, watches, handsomely bound books, &c., which reach their destination, although in a broken or deteriorated condition, nor on account of alleged losses of the contents of registered covers which safely reached their destinations, nor on account of any article for which the addressee has signed a receipt. No claim for compensation will be admitted if made more than a year after the article was posted.

   97. The Post Office will decline all responsibility for unregistered letters containing bank notes, or jewellery, and where registration has been neglected will make no enquiries into alleged losses of such letters.

   98. Enquiry as to the disposal of a registered article shall be made free of charge when the sender produces primâ facie evidence that it has failed to reach the addressee. When, however, no such evidence is produced, a fee of 10 cents for an acknowledgment of delivery shall be required before enquiry is instituted. No fee shall be charged for enquiry when the sender has already paid for an acknowledgment of delivery.

   99. Officers employed in the Registration Department are forbidden to address registered mail matter, to enclose it in the envelope, seal it or affix the stamps.

99a. The Postmaster General shall detain and if necessary return to the sender all registered correspondence, parcels and other articles deliverable on a receipt which he is unable to deliver owing to failure on the part of the addressee to establish his identity to the satisfaction of the Postmaster General in accordance with the following Rules:-

182

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 22, 1914.

(b.) A Register of Signatures shall be kept at the General Post Office where any person may register his signature on payment of a fee of $10 per annum when personal delivery will be made on such signature at the General Post Office.

The Attorney General seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

QUESTIONS. Mr. POLLOCK, pursuant to notice, asked the following Questions:

1. Did His Excellency the Officer then administering the Government forward to the Right Honourable the Secretary of State for the Colonies the proposal which was made by the Honourable member for the Chamber of Commerce in this Council, on the 23rd October last, for a Committee of Five Justices of the Peace" to go into the whole question as to the supply of nurses in the Govern- ment Hospitals, their pay, allowances, and all other kindred questions relating to the efficiency of this branch of our public service"? If so, what was the reply of the Secretary of State for the Colonies and when was it received?

2. Has the letter of the Superintendent of the Government Civil Hospital, dated the 2nd July last, and addressed to the Principal Civil Medical Officer, setting forth on behalf of the Sisters reasons why they considered that their numbers should be increased by two, or has a copy of such letter ever been forwarded to the Secretary of State for the Colonies? If so, when was it forwarded?

3. Was it impossible to obtain the sanction of the Secretary of State for the Colonies to the increase of two sisters in the Staff prior to the introduction of the Estimates for 1914 in this Council?

4. Were the two additional Probationers, decided upon by His Excellency the Gorernor on the 19th August last, introdured into the Estimates for 1914 with the previous sanction of the Secretary of State for the Colonies? If so, how was such sanction obtained and when? If not, has such sanction been since obtained and when?

5. In connection with the answer to my third Question at the last Meeting of this Council, how many of such 208 cases were Military Women, and how many of such cases were Maternity cases? For about how many days, on the average, did each of such maternity cases remain in a Government Hospital,

in 1913?

6. What fees per diem are paid to the Government in respect of

(a) Military Women, and

(b) Military Children?

What items of expenditure, and to what amount, produce the result, which is alleged in the answer to my third Question at the last Meeting of this Council, namely, that, although $8,881.88 was received, in 1913, by the Government in fees on account of Military Women and Children, such fees leave no profit to the Government?

7. In connection with that part of the answer to my third Question at the last Meet- ing of this Council which sets forth the percentages of cases treated at the Maternity and Victoria Hospitals, will the Government state the actual numbers of cases dealt with at each of such Hospitals during each of the years 1908 to 1913 inclusive?

8. When was the nursing of plague-cases transferred from the Kennedy Town Hospital to the Government Civil Hospital? How many plague-cases were treated at the Government (ivil Hospital during the years 1912 and 1913 respectively? How many of such cases have been treated there during each month since the beginning of the present year? Are such plague-cases treated in an isolation ward or in the general ward?

:

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 19, 1914.

213

9. What is the "enlargement of Hospital", which is referred to in foot-note (15) on p. 59 of the White Book relating to the Estimates of Revenue and Expendi- ture for the year 1914, which, according to the statement in that foot-note, necessitated the appointment of two additional Probationers? Are there in fact now only two Probationers on the Government Nursing Staff out of seven who were provided for in the Estimates for 1914?

10. Were any, and, if so, how many Sisters on the Staff of the Government Civil Hospital taken ill during the course of last summer, and between what dates were they absent from their duties? Did not such absence from duty place extra work on the shoulders of the Sisters remaining on duty?

11. In connection with the intention of His Excellency the Governor (expressed at the last Meeting of this Council) to "recommend to the Secretary of State for the Colonies an increase of three Sisters as a temporary measure pending further investigation as to the disposition of the Staff", will the Government

state:-

(i.) Are such Sisters to be engaged from England or locally?

(i.) For how long are they to be engaged?

(iii.) When will the services of the one Nurse, who was stated by His Excellency, at the last Meeting of this Council, to have been already engaged as one of such three Sisters, be available to the Government? What examina- tions has she passed and what training has she had? Has any further nurse been engaged, in connection with such increase, since the last Meeting of this Council? If so, what examinations has she passed and what training has she had? Has the Secretary of State for the Colonies now sanctioned such increase?

The Colonial Secretary replied.

  MOTION. Mr. POLLOCK requested permission not to proceed for the present with the following motion standing in his name:-

That the Government do lay upon the table of this Council the letter, under date of the 2nd July last, which was addressed by the Superintendent of the Govern- ment Civil Hospital to the Principal Civil Medical Officer setting forth on behalf of the Sisters reasons why they considered that their numbers should be increased by two.

His Excellency the Governor assented.

DESPATCHES FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE.

No. 260.

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET,

2nd June, 1914.

SIR, With reference to my Circular despatch of the 8th of June, 1911, I have the honour to transinit to you copies of new Regulations respecting Foreign Orders and Medals which have recently received the King's approval.

2. These regulations, which supersede all those hitherto in force, are now divided into two separate codes :

4.-Applicable to persons in the service of the Crown.* B.-Applicable to persons not in the service of the Crown.

I have, &c.,

The Officer Administering the Government of

HONGKONG.

L. HARCOURT.

B

Regulations respecting Foreign Orders and Medals applicable to Persons

NOT in the Service of the Crown.

Orders.

1. Ir 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, signified 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 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. Ap- plication will be made to His Majesty for full permission by His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs on behalf of any person who, not being at the time in the Service of the Crown, is either in the salaried employment of a Foreign State or has rendered valuable services within the period of two years immediately preceding the noti- fication of the Decoration to His Majesty's Government as prescribed under Rule 5.

The expression "valuable services" must be construed as meaning some service ren- dered to a Foreign Head of State or Government specifically, and must be indisputably valuable in the strict sense of the word. Though such services need not necessarily be gratuitous, as in the case of a person actually in the employ of a Foreign Government, they must be unconnected with any transaction of a commercial or financial character brought about in the ordinary course of business. The term "valuable services" does not therefore, as a general rule, apply to services connected with the fulfilment of Government or Muni- *Not published.

·

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 17, 1914.

cipal contracts, the financing of Government or Municipal loans. It also does not include Red Cross Services, presentation of objects of value to Public Museums and Institutions, pecuniary donations or endowments, personal performances, services in connection with Exhibitions and Industrial Congresses, services in the domain of art, literature, science, education, and agriculture, services rendered by British subjects in the capacity of honorary foreign Consular Officers.

4. Private or restricted permission is contemplated for Decorations which have been conferred in recognition of personal attention to the Head of a Foreign State or Member of a Reigning House, and which are therefore of a more or less complimentary character. Private permission is as a rule only given on exceptional occasions, when in the public interest and for political reasons it is deemed expedient that the acceptance of a Foreign Decoration should not be declined.

5. Both in the case of full and in that of private permission the matter will be sub- mitted to the King by His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.

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 Representative accredited to the Head of the Foreign State, or through the Diplomatic Representative of the latter 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 permis- sion 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 a Warrant as defined in Rule 2, 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.

7. The Warrant signifying 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, precedence, or privilege appertaining to a Knight Bachelor of His Majesty's Realms.

8. When a British subject has received the Royal permission, full or private, to accept and wear the Decoration of a Foreign Order, he will not be allowed to accept the Decoration of a higher class of the same Order without His Majesty's approval. His Majesty will in such cases grant permission only if the promotion in the Order is conferred for fresh services which come within these Regulations.

G. These Regulations apply only to Orders of Chivalry. Decorations conferred by Private Societies and Decorations of a purely academic nature, and all Decorations not being Orders of Chivalry, may be accepted without His Majesty's permission, but must not be

worn.

Exception is made in the case of a few Foreign Orders, which, though not in strictness Orders of Chivalry, yet are of such a high distinction that, for the purpose of these Regula- tions, they are to be considered and treated as Orders of Chivalry.

10. Ladies are subject to the Regulations in all respects in the same manner as men.

Medals.

11. Medals which constitute a particular class of a Foreign Order are subject in all res- pects to the Regulations in the same manner as higher grades of the Order, except that per- mission to wear will be given by Letter and not by Royal Warrant.

12. Medals for saving or attempting to save life at sea or on land conferred on behalf of the Head or Government of a Foreign State may be accepted without His Majesty's special permission, and may be worn at Court.

?

244

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 17, 1914.

k

13. Medals conferred by Private Societies or Institutions and Commemorative Medals may be accepted without permission, but none of these Medals can be worn.

14. The King's permission must be obtained for any other Medal to be worn. permission is needed to accept a Foreign Medal if it is not intended to be worn.

No

15. His Majesty will not grant permission to wear any Foreign War Medal if the per- son on whom it is to be or has been conferred was during the war acting in contravention of the Foreign Enlistment Act.

FRANCIS HENRY MAY,

 By His Excellency Sir FRANCIS HENRY MAY, K.C.M.G., Governor and Commander- in-Chief of the Colony of Hongkong and its Dependencies and Vice-Admiral of the same.

 Whereas by the fourth section of the Royal Naval Reserve (Volunteer) Act, 1859, it is enacted that it shall be lawful for the King on such occasions as His Majesty shall deem fit (the occasion being first communicated to Parliament or declared in Council and notified by Proclamation if Parliament be not sitting or in being) to order and direct that the Volunteers under that Act, or so many or such part of them as His Majesty may deem necessary shall be called into actual service:

 And whereas by the first section of the Naval Reserve (Mobilization) Act, 1900, it is enacted that it shall be lawful for the King, in case of any such order and direction, to authorize the Admiralty to give, and when given, to revoke or vary, such directions as may seem necessary or proper for calling out all or any of the said Volunteers as the occasion may require:

And whereas the King has communicated to Parliament (or has declared in Council) and notified by Proclamation that owing to the state of public affairs and the demands upon his Naval Forces for the protection of the Empire, an occasion has arisen for ordering and directing as in the said first-mentioned Act is provided:

 It is hereby notified that the King has ordered and directed that the Royal Naval Reserves, or such part of them as the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty may direct, be called into actual service.

 Given under my hand and the Public Seal of the Colony at Victoria, Hongkong, this 2nd day of August, 1914.

It is, moreover, essential that such telegrams and radio-telegrams should bear the sender's name at the end of the text, otherwise they are liable to be stopped until the name is notified by paid telegram. Registered abbreviated addresses will not be accepted either as addresses or as the names of senders.

Note.The term "telegram" is applied to radio-telegraph messages sent from shore to shore, as well as to those sent by cable or land line.

Whereas a state of war exists between His Majesty the King and Germany.

  This Proclamation is issued to inform the inhabitants of Hongkong that His Majesty's navy will guard the Colony from an attack by the enemy in force, and that the present strength of the defences and garrison of the fortress make unlikely a raid by predatory cruisers.

  All necessary measures to defeat such a raid are, however, being taken, and the Govern- ment trust that the confidence of the people will be shown by their proceeding with their ordinary business as in time of peace.

  In the event of hostile vessels being sighted, three guns will be fired from the "Tamar" and the red British ensign will be hoisted on that vessel and at the masthead of the flagstaff on the Peak, and will be kept hoisted as long as the enemy is in sight.

  While this signal remains hoisted the public should avoid collecting in thoroughfares and any other action likely to cause excitement or confusion.

On the retirement of the enemy the Colonial flag will be hoisted.

Further Proclamations will be issued as necessary from time to time.

                                                         any damage directly or indirectly occasioned by such forcible entry.

    16. Every person who refuses or neglects to obey or comply with any order or requisi- tion made under this Order, or does anything whereby the execution of any such order or requisition is prevented or hindered, or with intent to prevent or hinder the execution of any such order or requisition shall be guilty of an offence against this Order, and shall, summary conviction thereof, be liable to a fine not less than 20 dollars and not more than 100 dollars, or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding one month.

2. In the event of one of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State being satisfied by information reaching him not later than midnight on Friday, the 7th day of August, 1914, that the treatment accorded to British merchant ships and their cargoes which at the date of the outbreak of hostilities were in the ports of the enemy or which subsequently entered them is not less favourable than the treatment accorded to enemy merchant ships by Articles 3 to 7 of this Order, he shall notify the Lords Commissioners of

In the event of information reaching one of His Majesty's Principal Secretaries State that British merchant ships which cleared from their last port before the declaration of war, but are met with by the enemy at sea after the outbreak of hostilities, are allowed to continue their voyage without interference with either the ship or the cargo, or after capture are released with or without proceedings for adjudication in the Prize Court, or are to be detained during the war or requisitioned in lieu of condemnation as prize, he shall notify the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty accordingly, and shall publish a notification thereof in the London Gazette, and in that event, but not otherwise, enemy merchant ships which cleared from their last port before the declaration of war, and are captured after the outbreak of hostilities and brought before the Prize Courts for adjudication, shall be released or detained or requisitioned in such cases and upon such terms as may be directed in the said notification in the London Gazette.

Such cleansing and disinfection may include the removal or destruction or both of any lath and plaster or other hollow partition wall, or any partition, screen, panelling, wainscotting, skirting, stair-lining, ceiling or other similar structure or any fittings or any portion of such wall, structure or fitting, if in the opinion of the Medical Officer of Health such removal and destruction are necessary. Compensation for such removal or destruction shall be given by the Board unless it is proved on behalf of the Board that the wall, structure or fitting removed or destroyed had been unlawfully erected or maintained. Such compensation shall be calculated so as to cover the cost of making good the portions of the build- ing damaged by such removal, including the limewashing of any exposed surface and the rebuilding of any necessary wall in materials approved by the Board, but no compensation shall be payable for any loss of rent or deterioration in the value of the property occasioned or alleged to be occasioned by the operation of these By-laws. In any case in which the amount claimed for compensation exceeds $250 an appeal shall lie from the decision of the Board as to the amount of the compensation to the Governor-in-Council whose decision thereon shall be final and conclusive provided however that no such appeal shall lie unless notice thereof shall have been given to the Clerk of Councils within fourteen days from the date upon which the appellant shall have been notified by the Board of any such decision as aforesaid.

The Board shall decide in each case whether the compensation, if any, is to be paid to the owner or to the occupier, and payment in accordance with the decision of the Board shall bar any further claim to compensation by owner or occupier, provided that nothing in these By-laws shall affect the rights of the owners or occupiers inter se as to the ultimate apportionment of any compensation awarded.

The provision of this By-law shall apply to the premises in any district in respect of which a special general cleansing and disinfection has been directed by the Board since the 31st day of March, 1912, or shall hereafter be directed.'
