DESPATCHES FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE.

No. 1.

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET,

16th November, 1914.

  SIR, With reference to Mr. Chamberlain's Circular despatch of the 11th March, 1902, I have the honour to transmit, for information in the Colony under your govern- ment, copies of an Order made by the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries entitled the Importation of Dogs Order, 1914. This Order, which supersedes the Order of 1901, came into operation on the 1st instant.

2. The principal changes effected by the new Order are:

(a) An alteration from SIX to FOUR calendar months in the prescribed period of

detention of imported dogs (Article 2), and

(b) An additional provision to secure that transhipments of imported dogs in

ports in Great Britain are regulated (Article 8).

  3. With regard to (a) the Board have decided to discontinue the procedure hitherto adopted, under which the prescribed period of quarantine of an imported dog was, on production by the owner of a satisfactory declaration as to the care and control of the dog prior to importation, reduced in certain cases to a minimum period of three calendar months from the date of the landing of the dog. The new period of FOUR calendar months' quarantine will therefore apply to all dogs landed in Great Britain from abroad, subject to certain exceptions in the case of dogs brought from Australia, Tasmania, New Zealand, and Jamaica.

I have, &c.,

L. HARCOURT.

 

The Officer Administering the Government of

HONGKONG.

ORDER OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE AND FISHERIES.

(DATED 23RD OCTOBER 1914.)

Importation of Dogs Order of 1914.

  The Board of Agriculture and Fisheries, by virtue and in exercise of the powers vested in them under the Diseases of Animals Acts, 1894 to 1914, and of every other power enabling them in this behalf, do order, and it is hereby ordered, as follows:

Restriction on Importation of Dogs.

  1.--(1.) An imported dog, that is to say, a dog brought to Great Britain from any other country, except Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, shall not be landed in Great Britain unless its landing is authorised by a licence of the Board pre- viously obtained, and when landed it shall be subject to the provisions of this Order, and to the conditions inserted in any licence authorising its landing.

  (2.) The provisions of this Order shall also apply to a dog taken from Great Britain, Ireland, the Channel Islands, or the Isle of Man into any port in any country (except Great Britain, Ireland, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man), as if the animal were an imported animal, unless it is shown to the satisfaction of the Board that the animal has not been landed in that country and that while on board it has not been allowed to come in contact with any dog or other canine animal from that country, and unless the landing of the animal in Great Britain is authorised by a licence of the Board previously obtained.

  (2.) During the said period the dog shall not be moved from the place of detention except to another place of detention or to a vessel for exportation, and in either case only with a licence of the Board authorising such movement.

(3.) This Article shall apply to (a) an imported dog which is shown to the satis- faction of the Board to be a bonâ fide performing dog, or (b) an imported dog which is intended to be exported from Great Britain within forty-eight hours after its landing, only so far as its provisions are applied by way of conditions inserted in the licence. authorising the landing of the dog.

Conditions of Licence.

3. The Board may insert in any licence granted by them under this Order author- ising the landing of an imported dog such conditions as they think necessary or desirable for the following purposes:

far as the same is not prescribed and regulated by this Order;

(ii) for prescribing the person by whom and the premises on which the dog

shall be detained and isolated;

(iii.) for regulating the movement of the dog to the place of detention, or vessel for exportation, and for prohibiting or regulating its movement during a period of four calendar months after its landing, or until its exportation, as the case may be;

the Board, or police constable, or officer of Customs and Excise.

Notice of Detention in case of Illegal Landing.

  4. (1.) Where an Inspector or other Officer of the Board, or of a Local Authority, has reason to believe that a dog has been landed in contravention of this Order or of any Order hereby revoked, he may give notice to the owner or person in charge of the dog requiring that, within a time specified in such notice, the dog shall be moved (a) to a vessel for exportation, or (b) to a place of detention for the purpose of detention and isolation in accordance with the provisions of such notice.

(2.) Such provisions may be inserted in the notice as the Board may think necessary or desirable for any of the purposes mentioned in the preceding Article.

(3.)

GERMAN VESSELS DETAINED BY THE BELGIAN AUTHORITIES AT ANTWERP ON THE OUTBREAK OF HOSTILITIES.

As notified in the Supplementary London Gazette of September 2nd, 1914, and in the London Gazette of September 4th, 1914, a Commission was originally appointed by the Belgian Government to prepare inventories of the cargoes of these vessels, claims in respect of which were to be submitted to the Belgian Tribunal of First Instance at Antwerp.

It is understood that in some cases the cargoes were unloaded by the Belgian Authorities; in other cases the cargoes remained on board the vessels.

According to the latest reliable information the vessels were lying in dock with their cargoes intact at the time of the investment of the city by the German forces.

His Majesty's Government have no information to show what treatment will be applied by the German Government to merchandise either on board ship or warehoused at Antwerp.

DESPATCHES FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE.

No. 15. The following revised notices issued by the Foreign Office are substituted for those published in Government Notification No. 518 of the 24th December, 1914.

BRITISH SUBJECTS IN AUSTRIA-HUNGARY.

Arrangements for Exchange.

 Arrangements have been made for the reciprocal exchange of British and Austro- Hungarian subjects (civilians) at present detained in Austria-Hungary and the United Kingdom respectively.

 The Austro-Hungarian Government agree to facilitate the departure from Austria- Hungary of the following classes of British subjects:

1. Women and children.

2. Males outside the limits of military age, i.e., those under 18 or over 50. 3. Males of military age who are clearly unsuited for military service or unlikely to serve, such as physicians, surgeons, clergymen, priests, and the medi- cally unfit.

Foreign Office,

October 8, 1914.

 Enquiries are being made as to the number of Austro-Hungarian subjects in the British Isles of military age who have not undergone military service, and, when these are completed, proposals will be made for the exchange of these persons for the same number of British subjects of a similar nature who are now detained in Austria-Hungary.

Foreign Office,

November, 1914.

MEMORANDUM AS TO TRANSMISSION OF MONEY AND LETTERS ABROAD AND DEPARTURE OF BRITISH SUBJECTS FROM GERMANY.

 The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs is directed to state that neither messages, letters, nor money can be forwarded through the Foreign Office or the United States Embassy in London to individual British subjects abroad.

 Payments of money to British subjects who are detained in an enemy country and unable to return to His Majesty's Dominions do not constitute an infringement of the Trading with the Enemy Proclamation, but it may be necessary to forward such remit- tances through a neutral country.

 It is suggested that it may be found possible to forward the money through Messrs. Cook and Son or one of the principal banks.

 Private letters to Germany and Austria-Hungary through neutral countries are now allowed to be forwarded subject to the usual conditions of censorship. Letters cannot, however, be forwarded direct to Germany or Austria-Hungary. British subjects and others wishing to communicate with friends in enemy countries must forward their letters through an agency in a neutral country, and correspondents may select their own private agency. Letters must not, however, be sent through British or Foreign Embassies, Legations, or Consulates in neutral countries. Messrs. Cook and Son have, it is under- stood, expressed their willingness to arrange for the transmission of such letters, and applications for information as to the necessary stamps, &c., should be made to them.

Letters intended for transmission to enemy countries should be as brief as possible, should contain nothing but personal matter, and should, if possible, be written in the German language.

The address of Messrs. Cook and Son's head office is Ludgate Circus, E.C.

It should be noted that the Foreign Office, in making the above suggestions, cannot guarantee the safe delivery of either money or letters.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 22, 1915.

19

  The German Government have agreed to facilitate the departure from Germany of British women and children under 17 years of age who are desirous of leaving the country and also of male British subjects under 17 and over 55 years of age, and the United States representatives in Germany will take all possible steps to arrange for the return of such persons, while they will continue to give such protection and assistance as may be possible to those British subjects who are unable to return to this country.

  No arrangement has yet been concluded for the exchange of male British subjects between the ages of 17 and 55 and German subjects detained in this country, except as regards ministers of religion and doctors of medicine.

  It is particularly requested that the Foreign Office may be informed as soon as possi- ble upon the return of individual British subjects from Germany.

DOWNING STREET,

27th November, 1914.

SIR, --I have the honour to transmit to you, for your information, the accompanying copy of the British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act, 1914 (4 & 5 Geo. V., Ch. 17).

2. This Act has been passed in order to give effect to a Resolution approved by the Imperial Conference of 1911 in the following terms, viz. :-

  That the Conference approves the scheme of Imperial citizenship, based on the following five propositions :-

(1.) Imperial nationality should be world-wide and uniform, each Dominion being left free to grant local nationality on such terms as its Legislature thinks fit.

(2.) The Mother Country finds it necessary to maintain five years as the qualify- ing period. This is a safeguard to Dominions as well as to her, but five years anywhere in the Empire should be as good as five years in the United Kingdom.

(3.) The grant of Imperial nationality is in every case discretionary and this discretion should be exercised by those responsible in the area in which the applicant has spent the last twelve months.

(4.) The Imperial Act should be so framed as to enable each self-governing

Dominion to adopt it.

(5.) Nothing now proposed would affect the validity and effectiveness of local laws regulating immigration and the like or differentiating between classes of British subjects.

  3. You will observe that Section 8 of the Act confers upon the Government of any British Possession the same power, subject to the terms of the proviso to subsection 1 of that section, to grant a certificate of Imperial naturalization as the Secretary of State has in the United Kingdom under the Act. The "person acting under his authority" men- tioned in the proviso should necessarily be a high official such as the Colonial Secretary or Acting Colonial Secretary. Under Section 3 (1) of the Act a person to whom a certi- ficate of naturalization is granted becomes entitled to all political and other rights, powers, and privileges, and becomes subject to all obligations, duties, and liabilities, to which a natural-born British subject is entitled or subject, and, as from the date of naturalization, receives, to all intents and purposes, the status of a natural-born British subject.

  4. The existing powers of the Legislature of a British Possession to provide for local naturalization, having effect only within the limits of that Possession, are prescribed by Section 26.

  5. The Act does not confer upon the Government of a Protectorate any power to grant certificates of naturalization.

  6. It will be observed that Part I of the Act amends and consolidates the English Statute and common law with regard to British nationality.

I have, &c.,

92

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 24, 1915.

There shall be between the territories of the two contracting Parties full and complete freedom of commerce and navigation.

   The subjects or citizens of each of the two contracting Parties shall have liberty freely to come with their ships and cargoes to all places, ports, and rivers in the territories of the other to which native subjects or citizens are or may be permitted to come. They shall not be subject in respect of their commerce or industry in the territories of the other, whether their residence there is of a permanent or temporary character, to any duties, taxes, imposts, or licences of any kind whatever other or higher than those which are or may be imposed upon native subjects or citizens, and they shall enjoy the same rights, pri- vileges, liberties, immunities, and other favours in matters of commerce and industry as are or may be enjoyed by native subjects or citizens.

ARTICLE 2.

The subjects or citizens of each of the contracting Parties shall be exempt- ed, in the territory of the other Party, from all personal service in the army, navy, and national militia; from all war charges, forced loans, military requisi- tions and contributions of whatever nature. Their properties shall not be seized, sequestrated, nor their ships, cargoes, goods, or effects retained for any public use, unless they have been previously allowed compensation, to be agreed upon between the interested parties on just and equitable bases. The charges connected with the possession by any title of landed property are excepted, as well as the obligation of military billeting and other special requisitions or exactions for the military forces to which all nationals or subjects or citizens of the most favoured nation may be liable as owners, tenants, or occupiers of real property.

ARTICLE 3.

  The contracting Parties agree that in all matters relating to commerce, navigation, and industry any privilege, favour, or immunity which either contracting Party has actually granted or may hereafter grant to the subjects or citizens or ships of any other foreign State shall be extended immediately and unconditionally to the subjects or citizens or ships of the other, it being their intention that the commerce, navigation, and industry of each country shall be placed in all respects on the footing of the most favoured nation.

ARTICLE 4.

The subjects or citizens of each of the contracting Parties in the territories of the other shall be at full liberty to acquire and possess every description of property, movable and immovable, which the laws of the country permit, or shall permit, the subjects or citizens of the State to acquire and possess. They may dispose of the same by sale, exchange, gift, marriage, testament, or in any other manner, or acquire the same by inheritance under the same con- ditions which are or shall be established with regard to subjects or citizens of the State. They shall not be subjected in any of the cases mentioned to any taxes, imposts, or charges of whatever denomination other or higher than those which are or shall be applicable to subjects or citizens of the State.

  The subjects or citizens of each of the contracting Parties shall also be permitted, on compliance with the laws of the country, freely to export the proceeds of the sale of their property and their goods in general without being subjected as foreigners to other or higher duties than those to which subjects or citizens of the country would be liable under similar circumstances.

In like manner, articles the produce or manufacture of one of the contracting Parties exported to the territories of the other shall not be subjected to other or higher duties or charges than those which are or may be levied on the like articles exported to any other foreign country. The contracting Parties also reciprocally undertake that no more favourable treatment shall be extended to the goods of any other foreign country in respect of importation, import duties, exportation, export duties, re-exportation, re-export duties, customs facilities, ware- housing, transhipment, drawbacks, and commerce and navigation in general.

ARTICLE 6.

His Britannic Majesty's Government engage to recommend to Parliament to prohibit the importation into and sale for consumption in the United Kingdom of any wine or other liquor to which the description "Port" or "Madeira" is applied, other than wine the produce of Portugal and of the island of Madeira respectively.

ARTICLE 7.

No prohibition or restriction shall be maintained or imposed on the impor- tation of any article the produce or manufacture of either of the contracting Parties into the territories of the other, from whatever place arriving, which shall not equally extend to the importation of the like articles being the produce or manufacture of any other foreign country. The only exceptions to this general rule shall be in the case of the sanitary or other prohibitions occasioned by the necessity of securing the safety of persons or of cattle or of plants useful for agriculture, and of the measures applicable in either of the two countries to articles enjoying a direct or indirect bounty in the other.

Nor shall any prohibition or restriction be maintained or imposed on the exportation of any article from the territories of either of the two contracting Parties to the territories of the other which shall not equally extend to the exportation of the like articles to any other foreign country.

ARTICLE 8.

ARTICLE 9.

Goods of all kinds, the produce or manufacture of one of the contracting Parties, imported into the territories of the other, shall not be subject to excise, octroi, or consumption dues, levied on account of the State or of the municipali- ties, higher than those payable on similar articles of native origin.

ARTICLE 10.

The stipulations of the present treaty with regard to the mutual accord of the treatment of the most favoured nation apply unconditionally to the treat- ment of commercial travellers and their samples. The Chambers of Commerce, as well as other trade associations and other recognised commercial associations in the contracting States as may be authorised in this behalf shall be mutually accepted as competent authorities for issuing any certificates that may be required

for commercial travellers.

Articles imported by commercial travellers as samples shall, in each country, be temporarily admitted free of duty on compliance with the customs regulations and formalities established to assure their re-exportation or the payment of the prescribed customs duties if not re-exported within the period allowed by law. But the foregoing privilege shall not extend to articles which, owing to their quantity or value, cannot be considered as samples, or which, owing to their nature, could not be identified upon re-exportation.

   In order to facilitate the clearance of samples of goods brought by commer- A.D. 1914. cial travellers of one of the two States into the territories of the other to be used as samples or patterns for the purpose of obtaining orders and not for sale, the marks, stamps, or seals affixed by the Customs authorities of one country to commercial samples at the time of exportation, and the list of such samples drawn up in proper form and certified by the competent authority, such list con- taining an exact description of the samples, shall form sufficient evidence, so far as the respective customs authorities are concerned, of their nature, and shall entitle them to exemption from all customs examination except in so far as may be necessary to establish that the samples produced are identical with those enumerated in the list. The customs authorities of either country are, however, at liberty to affix a supplementary mark to such samples, should this precaution in particular cases be considered necessary.

ARTICLE 11.

Each of the contracting Parties shall permit the importation or exportation on the vessels of the other of all merchandise which may be legally imported or exported, and also the carriage of passengers from or to their respective territories on the vessels of the other; and such vessels and their cargoes and passengers shall enjoy the same privileges, and shall not be subjected to any other or higher duties or charges than the vessels, cargoes, and passengers of the most favoured nation.

ARTICLE 12.

   Notwithstanding anything in this treaty either of the contracting Parties reserves the right to confine to national vessels the trade between any ports within its territories. In the event of this right being exercised by either country, nothing in this treaty shall be construed as entitling the vessels of that country to participate in the corresponding trade between ports of the other country.

   British and Portuguese vessels may nevertheless proceed from one port to another, either for the purpose of landing the whole or part of their passengers or cargoes brought from abroad, or of taking on board the whole or part of their passengers or cargoes for a foreign destination.

   It is also understood that no vessel shall be considered as engaging in trade between two ports of one of the contracting States merely because it carries between those ports passengers holding through tickets or merchandise con- signed on through bill of lading to or from some place outside the territories of that State.

ARTICLE 13.

No duties of tonnage, harbour, pilotage, lighthouse, quarantine, or other analagous duties of whatever nature, or under whatever denomination, levied in the name or for the profit of the Government, private individuals, corporations, or establishments of any kind, shall be imposed in the ports of the territories of either of the contracting Parties upon the vessels of the other or on their cargoes in lieu of on the vessels which shall not equally and under the same conditions be imposed in the like cases on vessels of the most favoured nation in general. Such equality of treatment shall apply to the respective vessels, from whatever port or place they may arrive, and whatever may be their destination.

ARTICLE 14.

In all that regards the stationing, loading, and unloading of vessels in ports, docks, roadsteads, and harbours every privilege granted by either of the contracting Parties to the vessels of any third country shall be extended im- mediately and unconditionally to the vessels of the other contracting Party.

ARTICLE 15.

Any vessel of either of the contracting Parties which may be compelled by stress of weather or by accident, to take shelter in a port of the other, shall be at liberty to refit therein, to procure all necessary stores, and to put to sea again, without paying any dues other than such as would be payable in a similar case by a national vessel. In case, however, the master of a merchant

A.D. 1914. vessel should be under the necessity of disposing of a part of his merchandise in order to defray his expenses, he shall be bound to conform to the regulations and tariffs of the place to which he may have come.

If any vessel of one of the contracting Parties should run aground or be wrecked upon the coasts of the other, such vessel, and all parts thereof, and all furniture and appurtenances belonging thereunto, and all goods and mer- chandise saved therefrom, including any which may have been cast into the sea, or the proceeds thereof if sold, as well as all papers found on board such stranded or wrecked vessel shall be given up to the owners or their agents when claimed by them. If there are no such owners or agents on the spot, then the same shall be delivered to the British or Portuguese consular officer in whose district the wreck or stranding may have taken place, upon being claimed by him within the period fixed by the laws of the country, and such consular officers, owners, or agents shall pay only the expenses incurred in the preservation of the property, together with the salvage or other expenses which would have been payable in the like case of a wreck of a national vessel.

The contracting Parties agree, moreover, that merchandise saved shall not be subjected to the payment of any Customs duty unless cleared for internal consumption.

In the case either of a vessel being driven in by stress of weather, run aground, or wrecked, the respective consular officers shall, if the owner or master or other agent of the owner is not present, or is present and requires it, be authorised to interpose in order to afford the necessary assistance to their fellow-countrymen.

ARTICLE 16.

All vessels which, according to British law, are to be deemed British vessels, and all vessels which, according to Portuguese law, are to be deemed Portuguese vessels, shall, for the purposes of this treaty, be deemed British or Portuguese vessels respectively.

ARTICLE 17.

Limited liability and other companies and associations, commercial, in- dustrial, and financial, already or hereafter to be organised in accordance with the laws of either contracting Party and registered in the territories of such Party, are authorised in the territories of the other to exercise their rights and appear in the Courts either as plaintiffs or defendants, subject to the laws of such other Party.

ARTICLE 18.

It shall be free to each of the high contracting Parties to appoint consuls- general, consuls, vice-consuls, and consular agents to reside in the towns and ports of the territories of the other. Such consuls-general, consuls, vice- consuls, and consular agents, however, shall not enter upon their functions until after they shall have been approved and admitted in the usual form by the Government to which they are sent.

ARTICLE 19.

The consul and consular agents of each of the contracting Parties, residing in the territories of the other, shall receive from the local authorities such assistance as can by law be given to them for the recovery of deserters from the vessels of their respective countries.

Provided that this stipulation shall not apply to subjects or citizens of the State in whose territory the desertion takes place.

ARTICLE 20.

The subjects or citizens of each of the high contracting Parties shall have, in the territories of the other, the same rights as subjects or citizens of that State in regard to patents for inventions, trade-marks, and designs, upon fulfilment of the formalities prescribed by law.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 26, 1915.

ARTICLE 21.

  The present treaty shall extend, as regards Portugal, to the mother-country and adjacent islands (Madeira, Porto Santo, and Azores), but shall not extend to any of the dominions, colonies, possessions, or protectorates of either con- tracting Party unless notice of the desire of such contracting Party that the treaty shall apply to any such dominion, colony, possession, or protectorate shall have been given to the other contracting Party before the expiration of one year from the date of the exchange of the ratifications of the present treaty.

  Nevertheless, the goods produced or manufactured in any of His Britannic Majesty's dominions, colonies, possessions, and protectorates shall enjoy in Portugal complete and unconditional most-favoured-nation treatment so long as such dominion, colony, possession, or protectorate shall accord to goods the produce or, manufacture of Portugal treatment as favourable as it gives to the produce or manfacture of any other foreign country; and reciprocally the goods produced or manufactured in any Portuguese colony or possession shall enjoy like most-favoured-nation treatment in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland so long as such colony or possession shall accord to goods the produce or manufacture of the United Kingdom treatment as favourable as it gives to the produce or manufacture of any other foreign country.

  Colonial goods re-exported from the mother country of one of the contract- ing Parties shall be treated in the territory of the other as proceeding from that mother country, and shall therefore be exempt from supertaxes on indirect trade which may eventually be established.

ARTICLE 22.

  Any controversy which may arise between the contracting Parties regard- ing the interpretation or application of the present treaty, as well as the rates of the conventional tariffs agreed upon between the contracting Parties and third States, shall, on the demand of one or other of the contracting Parties, be adjusted by means of arbitration.

A court of arbitration shall in each case be constituted in the following

manner :-

1. Each of the contracting Parties shall name an arbitrator from among

the competent subjects or citizens of the country.

2. The two contracting Parties shall then choose a subject of a third

country to act as umpire.

3. In the event of no agreement being reached as to the umpire, each of the contracting Parties shall name a candidate of different nation- ality from those of the persons proposed under the preceding paragraph. The selection of one of the two candidates so nominated for the office of umpire shall be decided by lot, unless the two contracting Parties shall come to an agreement on the subject. The umpire shall preside at the Court of Arbitration, which shall decide by a majority of votes. On the first occasion of arbitration the Court shall sit in the territory of the country decided by lot; in the second case it shall sit in the territory of the other country; and subsequently alternately in the territory of the two contracting Parties in a place selected by the Government of the country where the Court is to meet. The necessary officers and staff shall be provided for the Court by the Government of the country in which it meets. Each of the contracting Parties shall be represented before the Court by one or more agents, who may be assisted by lawyers.

The proceedings shall be solely in writing, but nevertheless the Court shall be entitled to require verbal explanations from the agents of the two- parties and to hear experts and witnesses if they shall deem such a course advisable. The costs of the arbitration shall be divided equally between the two contracting Parties.

Instructions as to what signal will pass the vessel through the defence will be given to the Master together with a written pass signed by the Officer in charge of the Examination Service. Without this pass no vessel is to attempt to leave.

(5.) Vessels must leave during the period of official day or official night for which the pass was issued, otherwise a fresh pass must be secured.

(6.) Vessels wishing to leave by night must provide themselves with two red

(7.) Should the Senior Naval Officer consider it advisable to close the Port to out-going craft by night, three red lights hoisted at Blackhead Hill will indicate Eastern Entrance closed, three red lights at Harbour Office Western Entrance closed.

By day three red balls will be hoisted as previously notified.

(8.) A limited number of monthly passes permitting launches and pleasure craft to leave the harbour will in future be issued.

"111.-(1.) Time served on board a training ship will be allowed to count as equivalent to one half the same time spent in service at sea, up to the limit of two years (i.e., no length of service will be allowed to count as more than one year at sea), provided that the candidate can produce a certificate from the Committee or Captain Superintendent that he has conducted himself creditably and passed a good examination in seamanship so far as it is practised in the training ship, as well as in other matters down to the time of his leaving the ship. Training ship service will not be regarded as equivalent to service in square rigged vessels.

(2.) Time spent at a school for Nautical Training conducted on premises on shore may be allowed to count in some proportion, not exceeding one half, as service at sea, provided that :-

(a.) The school is in receipt of a grant from the Board of Education

under the Regulations for Schools of Nautical Training.

(b.) After an inspection by one of their officers the Board of Trade are satisfied that the school gives a training that justifies time spent there being reckoned as part of the necessary qualifying time for a certificate of competency.

(c.) The candidate produces a satisfactory certificate as regards conduct and proficiency from the authorities of the school on leaving it.

The proportion in which time spent at a school conducted on premises ashore will be accepted as qualifying under the above provisions will be decided after inspection by one of the Board's officers, but time spent at the school will never be counted as equivalent to more than one half of the same time spent at sea, nor will it in any circumstances be taken as equivalent to more than one year at sea.'

DESPATCHES FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE.

No. 169. With reference to Government Notification No. 15 of the 22nd January, 1915, the following revised memorandum issued by the Foreign Office respecting the transmission of money and letters to enemy countries is published for general informa- tion.

The Foreign Office cannot assume any responsibility for the forwarding of money, letters, or messages to individual persons abroad.

Payments of money to British subjects detained in enemy countries and unable to return to His Majesty's Dominions do not constitute an infringement of the Trading with the Enemy Proclamation, but it may be found necessary to forward such remittances through a neutral country.

  It is suggested that persons not having friends or correspondents in neutral countries may find it possible to forward the money through Messrs. Thomas Cook and Son, or some similar agency.

Private letters to Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire are now allowed to be forwarded through neutral countries subject to the usual conditions of the censorship, but cannot be sent direct. Letters should not be sent through British or foreign Embassies, Legations, or Consulates in neutral countries. British subjects and others wishing to communicate with friends in enemy countries must forward their letters through an agency in a neutral country selected by themselves.

Such letters must be in open envelopes enclosed in a covering letter, which must be sent through the usual postal channel to the correspondent or agency in the neutral country by which they are to be forwarded. Senders must make their own arrangements as to obtaining the necessary stamps, &c. Attempts to send such letters out of the United Kingdom by any means other than the post render persons concerned in them liable to prosecution under the Defence of the Realm Regulations. Letters should be as brief as possible, and should contain nothing but matter of a personal nature. They will be subject both to British and enemy censorship, and. may be written either in the English language or in that of the country to which they are to be sent.

The Foreign Office in making the above suggestions cannot guarantee the safe delivery of either money or letters.

[L.S.] FRANCIS HENRY MAY,

Governor.

By His Excellency Sir FRANCIS HENRY MAY Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished 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 section three of the Prize Courts Act 1894 His Majesty in Council is authorised to make rules of court for regulating subject to the provisions of the Naval Prize Act 1864 and the said Act the procedure and practice of prize courts within the meaning of the Naval Prize Act 1864 and the duties and conduct of the officers thereof and of the practitioners therein and for regulating the fees to be taken by the officers of the courts and the costs charges and expenses to be allowed to the practitioners therein :

And whereas by section five of the Naval Prize Act 1864 it is provided that every appeal from a prize court within the meaning of this Act shall be made in such manner and form and subject to such regulations (including regulations as to fees costs charges. and expenses) as may for the time being be directed by Order in Council:

208

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, APRIL 21, 1915.

   And whereas in pursuance of the Prize Courts Act 1894 certain rules were made by an Order in Council dated the 18th day of July 1898:

   And whereas by an Order in Council made in pursuance of the Prize Courts Act 1894 and the Naval Prize Act 1864 and dated the 5th day of August 1914 the rules thereinafter set forth were substituted for the rules made by the said Order in Council dated the 18th day of July 1898:

   And whereas by Order XLVI of the said rules made by the said Order in Council dated the 5th day of August 1914 it is provided that so far as the said rules apply to any Court in a British Possession outside the United Kingdom they shall not come into opera- tion until they are proclaimed in the Possession by the Governor thereof:

   And whereas by Orders in Council made in pursuance of the said Acts and dated respectively the 28th day of November 1914 and the 3rd day of February 1915 the said rules so made by the Order in Council of the 5th day of August 1914 were amended as therein specified:

And whereas the said amendments of the said rules were proclaimed in the Colony by the Governor on the 29th day of January and the 1st day of April 1915 respectively: And whereas by an Order in Council made in pursuance of the said Acts and dated the 23rd day of March 1915 the said rules were further amended as follows :

1. Order IX, Rule 1, is amended by the omission of the words "

Whereas by a Proclamation of the President of the United States of America, dated the 9th April, 1910, the benefits of the United States Act of 1909, entitled "An Act to amend and consolidate the Acts respecting Copyright," were extended to the Subjects of Great Britain and her Possessions, but no provision was made therein for the protection of the musical works of British Subjects against reproduction by means of mechanical contrivances:

   And whereas His Majesty is advised that the Government of the United States of America has undertaken, upon the issue of this Order, to grant such protection to the musical works of British Subjects:

   And whereas by the Copyright Act, 1911, authority is conferred upon His Majesty to extend, by Order in Council, the protection of the said Act to certain classes of foreign works within any part of His Majesty's Dominions, other than self-governing Dominions, to which the said Act extends :

   And whereas it is desirable to provide protection within the said Dominions for the unpublished works of Citizens of the United States of America:

   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 (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 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, 1915, and it is expedient to continue such prohibition:

   Now, therefore, I, 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, 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, 1915, 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, Gun- powder, Stores, Goods or Articles respectively, unless this Proclamation shall, in the mean- time, be revoked, or unless permission shall have been obtained under Section 3 of the Ordi- nance above mentioned.

AT THE COURT AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE,

THE 11TH DAY OF MARCH, 1915.

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

HEREAS the German Government has issued certain Orders which, in violation of the usages of war, purport to declare the waters surrounding the United Kingdom a military area, in which all British and allied merchant vessels will be des- troyed irrespective of the safety of the lives of passengers and crew, and in which neutral shipping will be exposed to similar danger in view of the uncertainties of naval warfare ;

  And whereas in a memorandum accompanying the said Orders neutrals are warned against entrusting crews, passengers, or goods to British or allied ships;

  And whereas such attempts on the part of the enemy give to His Majesty an unques- tionable right of retaliation;

  And whereas His Majesty has therefore decided to adopt further measures in order to prevent commodities of any kind from reaching or leaving Germany, though such measures will be enforced without risk to neutral ships or to neutral or non-combatant life, and in strict observance of the dictates of humanity;

And whereas the Allies of His Majesty are associated with Him in the steps now to be announced for restricting further the commerce of Germany:

HIS MAJESTY is therefore pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to order and it is hereby ordered as follows:-

I.--No merchant vessel which sailed from her port of departure after the 1st March,

1915, shall be allowed to proceed on her voyage to any German port.

Unless the vessel receives a pass enabling her to proceed to some neutral or allied port to be named in the pass, goods on board any such vessel must be discharged in a British port and placed in the custody of the Marshal of the Prize Court. Goods so discharged, not being contraband of war, shall, if not requisitioned for the use of His Majesty, be restored by order of the Court, upon such terms as the Court may in the circumstances deem to be just, to the person entitled thereto.

II. No merchant vessel which sailed froin any German port after the 1st March, 1915, shall be allowed to proceed on her voyage with any goods on board laden at such port.

And whereas the Allies of His Majesty are associated with Him in the steps now to be announced for restricting further the commerce of Germany:

HIS MAJESTY is therefore pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to order and it is hereby ordered as follows:-

I.--No merchant vessel which sailed from her port of departure after the 1st March,

1915, shall be allowed to proceed on her voyage to any German port.

Unless the vessel receives a pass enabling her to proceed to some neutral or allied port to be named in the pass, goods on board any such vessel must be discharged in a British port and placed in the custody of the Marshal of the Prize Court. Goods so discharged, not being contraband of war, shall, if not requisitioned for the use of His Majesty, be restored by order of the Court, upon such terms as the Court may in the circumstances deem to be just, to the person entitled thereto.

II. No merchant vessel which sailed froin any German port after the 1st March, 1915, shall be allowed to proceed on her voyage with any goods on board laden at such port.

1

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 18, 1915.

315

All goods laden at such port must be discharged in a British or allied port. Goods so discharged in a British port shall be placed in the custody of the Marshal of the Prize Court, and, if not requisitioned for the use of His Majesty, shall be detained or sold under the direction of the Prize Court. The proceeds of goods so sold shall be paid into Court and dealt with in such manner as the Court may in the circumstances deem to be just.

Provided that no preceeds of the sale of such goods shall be paid out of Court until the conclusion of peace, except on the application of the proper Officer of the Crown, unless it be shown that the goods had become neutral property before the issue of this Order.

Provided also that nothing herein shall prevent the release of neutral property laden at such enemy port on the application of the proper Officer of the Crown.

III.-Every merchant vessel which sailed from her port of departure after the 1st March, 1915, on her way to a port other than a German port, carrying goods with an enemy destination, or which are enemy property, may be required to discharge such goods in a British or allied port. Any goods so discharged in a British port shall be placed in the custody of the Marshal of the Prize Court, and, unless they are contraband of war, shall, if not requisitioned for the use of His Majesty, be restored by order of the Court, upon such terms as the Court may in the circumstances deem to be just, to the person entitled thereto.

Provided that this Article shall not apply in any case falling within Articles II or IV of this Order.

IV. Every merchant vessel which sailed from a port other than a German port after the 1st March, 1915, having on board goods which are of enemy origin or are enemy property may be required to discharge such goods in a British or allied port. Goods so discharged in a British port shall be placed in the custody of the Marshal of the Prize Court, and, if not requisitioned for the use of His Majesty, shall be detained or sold under the direction of the Prize Court. The proceeds of goods so sold shall be paid into Court and dealt with in such manner as the Court may in the circumstances deem to be just.

Provided that no proceeds of the sale of such goods shall be paid out of Court until the conclusion of peace except on the application of the proper Officer of the Crown, unless it be shown that the goods had become neutral property before the issue of this Order.

Provided also that nothing herein shall prevent the release of neutral property of enemy origin on the application of the proper Officer of the Crown.

V. (1.) Any person claiming to be interested in, or to have any claim in respect of, any goods (not being contraband of war) placed in the custody of the Marshal of the Prize Court under this Order, or in the proceeds of such goods, may forthwith issue a writ in the Prize Court against the proper Officer of the Crown and apply for an order that the goods should be restored to him, or that their proceeds should be paid to him, or for such other order as the circumstances of the case may require.

(2.) The practice and procedure of the Prize Court shall, so far as appli- cable, be followed mutatis mutandis in any proceedings consequential upon this Order.

VI. A merchant vessel which has cleared for a neutral port from a British or allied port, or which has been allowed to pass having an ostensible destination to a neutral port, and proceeds to an enemy port, shall, if captured on any subse- quent voyage, be liable to condemnation.

VII.--Nothing in this Order shall be deemed to affect the liability of any vessel or

goods to capture or condemnation independently of this Order.

VIII. Nothing in this Order shall prevent the relaxation of the provisions of this Order in respect of the merchant vessels of any country which declares that no commerce intended for or originating in Germany or belonging to German subjects shall enjoy the protection of its flag.

FINDING.

We find that the charges against Mr. FRASER, 3rd Mate, S.S. Haimun, Official No. 95,869, the number of whose certificate of competency as 1st Mate is 037,373 of Liver- pool, are proved, and taking into consideration that this officer's certificate was suspended by a Marine Court in Hongkong for drunkenness in March, 1914, for one year, and from this and the evidence now given he appears a confirmed drunkard and as such, with a certificate of competency, is a menace to shipping, we therefore order that his certifi- cate be suspended for two years and that before such certificate be returned, a certificate of sobriety from the Master or Masters with whom he has served be produced to the Board of Trade for six months immediately preceding the expiration of suspension.

DESPATCHES FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE.

No. 274.

CIRCULAR.

DOWNING STREET,

4th May, 1915.

SIR,-In my telegram of the 21st of April, I had the honour to apprize you of the decision of His Majesty's Government that all equitable claims made by British, allied, or neutral third parties against ships or cargoes detained or condemned by Prize Courts in His Majesty's oversea dominions other than self-governing Dominions should be dealt with by the Prize Claims Committee in London.

  2. This Committee was appointed "to receive and consider claims made by British, allied, or neutral third parties against ships or cargoes which have been condemned or detained by order of Prize Courts and to recommend to what extent, in what manner, and on what terms such claims should be met or provided for out of the Prize Funds". It has already dealt with claims of this nature in the United Kingdom.

  3. The alternative of leaving all claims of the kind in question to be dealt with by the various local and Colonial governments has been fully considered; but it is felt that, although delay may from time to time be caused by bringing such cases before the Com- mittee in this country, e.g., where the papers, books, and evidence are in India or one of the Colonies, delay of a similar nature must occasionally occur whatever procedure is adopted; nor does it follow that in the case of a ship or cargo in an Indian or Colonial port all the evidence necessary to the enquiry will also be available in or near that port.

  4. It has been suggested that the place selected for the enquiry into every claim of this kind should be the one which would be likely to prove most convenient in each case. But it would be difficult, prior to investigation, to arrive at certainty on this point, and considerable correspondence would be necessary before it could be decided where the investigation should be held, while there might be cases in which the question would be the subject of controversy.

  5. There would also be cases in which the port of condemnation would have no connexion with the intended destination of the ship or cargo. In such cases none of the evidence would be available at the port of adjudication. For instance, a ship captured in the Atlantic might, for convenience, be taken either to a British port or to Gibraltar, Malta, or Halifax, and in none of the three last named places would it be as convenient to deal with claims in respect of such a ship as in London.

  6. It has also been suggested that, should separate bodies in different parts of the world be charged with the duty of dealing with these cases, general principles might be laid down for their guidance. It would, however, be very difficult, if not impossible, to lay down such principles until a large number of cases had formed the subject of enquiry.

  7. The difficulty of formulating general principles at the present stage increases the risk, which must in any case exist, that the adjudication of such cases by separate bodies would result in diversity of decisions. In my opinion, uniformity in the decision of these claims, which in many cases involve very large sums of money, is of the utmost importance, and it is doubtful if any satisfactory degree of uniformity can be secured unless all these cases are adjudicated on by the Committee in England.

  8. In all the circumstances, therefore, I am satisfied that it is advisable to refer these cases to the Prize Claims Committee in London.

I have, &c.,
