It will be seen from Article 3 that the Order applies to Hongkong, subject to such modifications as may be made by the Hongkong Legislature for adapting to the circumstances of Hongkong the provisions of the Order. Such legis- lation will be introduced shortly.

·

AT THE COURT AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE,

THE 18TH DAY OF AUGUST, 1919.

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

WHEREAS at Versailles on the twenty-eighth day of June, nineteen hundred and

nineteen, a Treaty of Peace (hereinafter referred to as "the Treaty"), was signed on behalf of His Majesty:

    And whereas by the Treaty of Peace Act, 1919, it was provided that His Majesty might make such appointments, establish such offices, make such Orders in Council and do such things as appeared to him to be necessary for carrying out the Treaty, and for giving effect to any of the provisions of the Treaty, and that any Order in Council made under that Act might provide for the imposition by summary process or otherwise of penalties in respect of breaches of the provisions thereof:

And whereas the Treaty contained the Sections set out in the Schedule to this Order, and it is expedient that for giving effect to those Sections the provisions hereinafter contained should have effect:

    And whereas by Treaty grant usage sufferance or other lawful means His Majesty has power and jurisdiction in British Protectorates, and is pleased by virtue and in exercise of the powers vested in Him by the Foreign Jurisdiction Act, 1890, or otherwise to extend the provisions of this Order to such Protectorates:

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

1. The Sections of the Treaty set out in the Schedule to this. Act shall have full force and effect as law, and for the purpose of carrying out the said Sections the follow- ing provisions shall have effect:-

(i) There shall be established in the United Kingdom a Clearing Office, under the control and management of such person (hereinafter referred to as the Controller) as the Board of Trade may appoint for the purpose, and there shall be attached thereto such officers and servants as the Board of Trade, subject to the consent of the Treasury as to number, may determine, and there shall be paid to the Controller and to such officers and servants such salaries or other remuneration as the Treasury may determine.

In the event of a local office being established in any part of His Majesty's dominions outside the United Kingdom or in any Protectorate, the provisions. relating to the Clearing Office hereinafter contained shall apply thereto for the purpose of the functions authorized to be performed by a local Clearing Office under paragraph 1 of the Annex to Section III of Part X of the Treaty. ii) It shall not be lawful for any person to pay or accept payment of any enemy debt except in cases where recovery thereof in a court of law is allowed as hereinafter provided, otherwise than through the Clearing Office, and no person interested in any such debt as debtor or creditor shall have any communications with any other person interested therein as creditor or debtor except through or by leave of the Clearing Office, and if any person con-

travenes this provision he shall be guilty of an offence and liable to be proceeded against and punished as if he had been guilty of the offence of trading with the enemy, and section one of the Trading with the Enemy Act, 1914, shall apply accordingly.

(iii) It shall not be lawful for any person to take proceedings in any court for the recovery of any enemy debt except in the circumstances provided under paragraphs 16, 23 and 25 of the Annex to the said Section III.

(iv) The Clearing Office shall have power to enforce the payment of any enemy debt against the person by whom the debt is due, together with such interest as is payable under paragraph 22 of the Annex to the said Section III, and for that purpose shall have all such rights and powers as if they were the creditor; and if the debt has been admitted by the debtor, or the debt or amount thereof has been found by arbitration or by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal or by a court of law in manner provided by paragraph 16 of the Annex to the said Section III, the Clearing Office may certify the amount so admitted or found due, and on production to the proper officer of the Supreme Court of the part of His Majesty's Dominions or the Protectorate in which the debtor resides of such certificate, the certificate shall be registered by that officer and shall from the date of such registration be of the same force and effect, and all proceedings may be 'taken thereon, as if the certificate were a judgment obtained in that court for the recovery of a debt of the amount specified in the certificate and entered upon the date of such registration, and all reasonable costs and charges attendant upon the registration of such certificate shall be recoverable in like manner as if they were part of such judgment.

(v) It shall be lawful for the Clearing Office to recover from any person by whom a fine is payable under paragraph 10 of the Annex to the said Section III the amount of such fine.

(vi) It shall be lawful for the Clearing Office to deduct from any sum payable by the Clearing Office to a creditor such commission, not exceeding two-and-a- half per cent. of the amount payable, as may be fixed by the Clearing Office. (vii) If any creditor refuses or fails to give such notice or to furnish such documents or information as are mentioned in paragraph 5 of the Annex to the said Section III he shall, on summary conviction, be liable to a fine not exceeding ten pounds.

(viii) If any person collusively gives notice of or admits any debt which is not due, or furnishes any false information with respect to any debt, he shall, on summary conviction, be liable to a fine not exceeding one hundred pounds or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months or to both such imprisonment and fine.

(ix) If His Majesty so agrees with any of the other Allied or Associated Powers the provisions of this Order, so far as they relate to enemy debts, shall apply to debts due to or from the nationals of that Power resident in any part of His Majesty's Dominions or Protectorates in like manner as they apply to debts due to or from British nationals so resident.

(x) Proceedings by and on behalf of the Clearing Office may be taken by and in the name of the Controller of the Clearing Office, who may by that name sue and be sued, and costs may be awarded to or against the Controller.

(xi) Every document purporting to be an order or other instrument issued by the Clearing Office and to be signed by the Controller or by the secretary or other person authorized by the Controller shall be received in evidence and shall be deemed to be such order or instrument without further proof unless the contrary is shown.

(xii) A certificate signed by the Controller that an order or other instrument purporting to be made or issued by the Clearing Office is so made or issued shall be conclusive evidence of the facts so certified.

(xiii) The Documentary Evidence Act, 1868, as amended by any subsequent enactment, shall apply to the Clearing Office in like manner as if the Clearing Office were mentioned in the first column of the First Schedule to that Act, and as if the Controller or Secretary of the Clearing Office or any person authorized by the Controller to act on his behalf were mentioned in the second column of that Schedule, and as if the regulations referred to in that Act included any documents issued by or on behalf of the Clearing Office.

(xv) For the purpose of enforcing the attendance of witnesses before the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal, wherever sitting, whether within or without His Majesty's Dominions, and compelling the production before the tribunal of documents, a Secretary of State shall have power to issue orders which shall have the like effect as if the proceedings before the tribunal were an action in a court and the order were a formal process issued by that court in the due exercise of its jurisdiction, and shall be enforceable by that court accordingly, and dis- obedience to any such order shall be punishable as contempt of court. (xvi) All property, rights and interests within His Majesty's Dominions or Protec- torates belonging to German nationals at the date when the Treaty comes into force (not being property, rights or interests acquired under any general licence issued by or on behalf of His Majesty), and the net proceeds of their sale, liquidation or other dealings therewith, are hereby charged---

(xvii) With a view to making effective and enforcing such charge as aforesaid-

(a) no person shall, without the consent of the Custodian, transfer, part with or otherwise deal in any property, right or interest subject to the charge, and if he does so he shall be liable on summary con- viction to a fine not exceeding one hundred pounds or to imprison- ment for a term not exceeding three months or to both such impri- sonment and fine;

(b) every person owning or having the control or management of any property right or interest subject to the charge (including where the property right or interest consists of shares stocks or other securities issued by a company municipal authority or other body or any right or interest therein such company authority or body) shall, unless particulars thereof have already been furnished to the Custodian in accordance with the Trading with the Enemy Acts 1914 to 1918, within one month from the date when this Order comes into opera- tion by notice in writing communicate the fact to the Custodian, and shall furnish the Custodian with such particulars in relation thereto as the Custodian may require, and if any person fails to do so he shall on summary conviction be liable to a fine not exceeding one hundred pounds;

(c) where the property charged consists of inscribed or registered stock, shares or other securities, any company, municipal authority or other body by whom the securities were issued or are managed shall, on application being made by the Custodian, enter the Custodian in the books in which the securities are inscribed or registered as the proprietor of the securities subject to the charge, and the Custodian shall, subject to the consent of the Board of Trade, have power to sell or otherwise deal with the securities as proprietor of which he is so registered or inscribed;

(d) the Board of Trade may by order vest in the Custodian any pro- perty, rights and interests subject to the charge, or the right to transfer the same, and for that purpose section four of the Trading with the Enemy (Amendment) Act, 1916, shall apply as if such property, rights and interests were property belonging to an enemy or enemy subject ;

(e) if any person called upon to pay any money or to transfer or other- wise to deal with any property rights or interests has reason to suspect that the same are subject to such charge as aforesaid he shall before paying transferring or dealing with the same report the matter to the Custodian and shall comply with any directions that the Custodian may give with respect thereto.

(xviii) The time at which the period of prescription or limitation of right of action referred to in Article 300 shall begin again to run shall be at the expiration of six months after the coming into force of the Treaty, and the period to be allowed within which presentation of negotiable instruments for acceptance or payment and notice of non-acceptance or non-payment or protest may be made under Article 300 shall be six months from the coming into force of the Treaty.

(xxi) So far as may be necessary for the purpose of Article 307 the Patents, De- signs, and Trade Marks (Temporary Rules) Act, 1914 (except paragraph (b) of Section one of the Patents, Designs, and Trade Marks (Temporary Rules) (Amendment) Act, 1914), shall in relation to German nationals continue in force after the Treaty comes into force as if references therein to subjects of a State of (sic, se. "at") war with His Majesty included references to German nationals.

(xxii) The duly qualified tribunal for the purposes of Article 310 of the Treaty

shall be the Comptroller-General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks.

SCHEDULE.

SECTIONS III TO VII OF PART X OF THE TREATY.

SECTION III.-DEBTS.

ARTICLE 296.

There shall be settled through the intervention of clearing offices to be established by each of the High Contracting Parties within three months of the notification referred to in paragraph (e) hereafter the following classes of pecuniary obligations:-

1. Debts payable before the war and due by a national of one of the Contracting Powers, residing within its territory, to a national of an Opposing Power, residing within its territory.

2. Debts which became payable during the war to nationals of one Contracting Power residing within its territory and arose out of transactions or contracts with the nationals of an Opposing Power, resident within its territory, of which the total or partial execution was suspended on account of the declaration of war.

3. Interest which has accrued due before and during the war to a national of one of the Contracting Powers in respect of securities issued by an Opposing Power, provided that the payment of interest on such securities to the nationals of that Power or to neutrals has not been suspended during the war. 4. Capital sums which have become payable before and during the war to nationals of one of the Contracting Powers in respect of securities issued by one of the Opposing Powers, provided that the payment of such capital sums to nationals of that Power or to neutrals has not been suspended during the war.

    The proceeds of liquidation of enemy property, rights, and interests mentioned in Section IV and in the Annex thereto will be accounted for through the clearing offices, in the currency and at the rate of exchange hereinafter provided in paragraph (d) and disposed of by them under the conditions provided by the said Section and Annex.

    The settlements provided for in this Article shall be effected according to the follow- ing principles and in accordance with the Annex to this Section :-

(a) Each of the High Contracting Parties shall prohibit, as from the coming into force of the present Treaty, both the payment and the acceptance of payment of such debts, and also all communications between the interested, parties with regard to the settlement of the said debts otherwise than through the clearing offices.

(b) Each of the High Contracting Parties shall be respectively responsible for the payment of such debts due by its nationals, except in the cases where before the war the debtor was in a state of bankruptcy or failure, or had given formal indication of insolvency or where the debt was due by a com- pany whose business has been liquidated under emergency legislation during the war. Nevertheless, debts due by the inhabitants of territory invaded or

occupied by the enemy before the Armistice will not be guaranteed by the States of which those territories form part.

(e) The sums due to the nationals of one of the High Contracting Parties by the nationals of an Opposing State will be debited to the clearing office of the country of the debtor, and paid to the creditor by the clearing office of the country of the creditor.

(d) Debts shall be paid or credited in the currency of such one of the Allied and Associated Powers, their colonies or protectorates, or the British Dominions or India, as may be concerned. If the debts are payable in some other currency they shall be paid or credited in the currency of the country con- cerned, whether an Allied or Associated Power, Colony, Protectorate, British Dominion or India, at the pre-war rate of exchange.

For the purpose of this provision the pre-war rate of exchange shall be defined as the average cable transfer rate prevailing in the Allied or Asso- ciated country concerned during the month immediately preceding the out- break of war between the said country concerned and Germany.

If a contract provides for a fixed rate of exchange governing the conver- sion of the currency in which the debt is stated into the currency of the Allied or Associated country concerned, then the above provisions concerning the rate of exchange shall not apply.

In the case of new States the currency in which and the rate of exchange at which debts shall be paid or credited shall be determined by the Repara- tion Commission provided for in Part VIII (Reparation).

(e) The provisions of this Article and of the Annex hereto shall not apply as between Germany on the one hand and any one of the Allied and Associated Powers, their colonies or protectorates, or any one of the British Dominions or India on the other hand, unless within a period of one month from the deposit of the ratifications of the present Treaty by the Power in question, or of the ratification on behalf of such Dominion or of India, notice to that effect is given to Germany by the Government of such Allied or Associated Power or of such Dominion or of India as the case may be.

(f) The Allied and Associated Powers who have adopted this Article and the Annex hereto may agree between themselves to apply them to their respective nationals established in their territory so far as regards matters between their nationals and German nationals. In this case the payments made by application of this provision will be subject to arrangements between the allied and associated clearing offices concerned.

ANNEX.

  1. Each of the High Contracting Parties will, within three months from the notifica- tion provided for in Article 296, paragraph (e), establish a clearing office for the collec- tion and payment of enemy debts.

  Local clearing offices may be established for any particular portion of the territories of the High Contracting Parties. Such local clearing offices may perform all the func- tions of a central clearing office in their respective districts, except that all transactions with the clearing office in the Opposing State must be effected through the central clearing office.

2. In this Annex the pecuniary obligations referred to in the first paragraph of Article 296 are described as "enemy debts", the persons from whom the same are due. enemy debtors", the persons to whom they are due as "enemy creditors", the clearing office in the country of the creditor is called the "Creditor Clearing Office". and the clearing office in the country of the debtor is called the "Debtor Clearing Office'

as

  3. The High Contracting Parties will subject contraventions of paragraph (a) of Article 296 to the same penalties as are at present provided by their legislation for trading with the enemy. They will similarly prohibit within their territory all legal process relating to payment of enemy debts, except in accordance with the provisions of this Annex.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

4. The Government guarantee specified in paragraph (b) of Article 296 shall take effect whenever, for any reason, a debt shall not be recoverable, except in a case where at the date of the outbreak of war the debt was barred by the laws of prescription in force in the country of the debtor, or where the debtor was at that time in a state of bankruptcy or failure or had given formal indication of insolvency, or where the debt was due by a company whose business had been liquidated under emergency legislation during the war. In such case the procedure specified by this Annex shall apply to payment of the dividends.

The terms "bankruptcy." and "failure" refer to the application of legislation pro- viding for such juridical conditions. The expression "formal indication of insolvency" bears the same meaning as it has in English law.

   5. Creditors shall give notice to the Creditor Clearing Office within six months of its establishment of debts due to them, and shall furnish the Clearing Office with any documents and information required of them.

The High Contracting Parties will take all suitable measures to trace and punish collusion between enemy creditors and debtors. The clearing offices will communicate to one another any evidence and information which might help the discovery and punishment of such collusion.

The High Contracting Parties will facilitate as much as possible postal and telegraphic communication at the expense of the parties concerned and through the intervention of the clearing offices between debtors and creditors desirous of coming to an agreement as to the amount of their debt.

The Creditor Clearing Office will notify the Debtor Clearing Office of all debts declared to it. The Debtor Clearing Office will, in due course, inform the Creditor Clearing Office which debts are admitted and which debts are contested. In the latter case, the Debtor Clearing Office will give the grounds for the non-admission of debt.

6. When a debt has been admitted, in whole or in part, the Debtor Clearing Office will at once credit the Creditor Clearing Office with the amount admitted, and at the same time notify it of such credit.

7. The debt shall be deemed to be admitted in full and shall be credited forthwith to the Creditor Clearing Office unless within three months from the receipt of the noti- fication or such longer time as may be agreed to by the Creditor Clearing Office notice has been given by the Debtor Clearing Öffice that it is not admitted.

    8. When the whole or part of a debt is not admitted the two clearing offices will examine into the matter jointly and will endeavour to bring the parties to an agreement.

9. The Creditor Clearing Office will pay to the individual creditor the sums credited to it out of the funds placed at its disposal by the Government of its country and in accordance with the conditions fixed by the said Government, retaining any sums con- sidered necessary to cover risks, expenses or commissions.

10. Any person having claimed payment of an enemy debt which is not admitted in whole or in part shall pay to the clearing office, by way of fine, interest at 5 per cent. on the part not admitted. Any person having unduly refused to admit the whole or part of a debt claimed from him shall pay, by way of fine, interest at 5 per cent. on the amount with regard to which his refusal shall be disallowed.

Such interest shall run from the date of expiration of the period provided for in paragraph 7 until the date on which the claim shall have been disallowed or the debt paid.

    Each clearing office shall, in so far as it is concerned, take steps to collect the fines above provided for, and will be responsible if such fines cannot be collected.

The fines will be credited to the other clearing office, which shall retain them as a contribution towards the cost of carrying out the present provisions.

11. The balance between the clearing offices shall be struck monthly and the credit balance paid in cash by the debtor State within a week.

Nevertheless, any credit balances, which may be due by one or more of the Allied and Associated Powers shall be retained until complete payment shall have been effected of the sums due to the Allied or Associated Powers or their nationals on account of the war.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

11

  12. To facilitate discussion between the clearing offices each of them shall have a representative at the place where the other is established.

  13. Except for special reasons all discussions in regard to claims will, so far as possible, take place at the Debtor Clearing Office.

  14. In conformity with Article 296, paragraph (b), the High Contracting Parties are responsible for the payment of the enemy debts owing by their nationals.

  The Debtor Clearing Office will therefore credit the Creditor Clearing Office with all debts admitted, even in case of inability to collect them from the individual debtor. The Governments concerned will, nevertheless, invest their respective clearing offices with all necessary powers for the recovery of debts which have been admitted.

  As an exception, the admitted debts owing by persons having suffered injury from acts of war shall only be credited to the Creditor Clearing Office when the compensation due to the person concerned in respect of such injury shall have been paid.

  15. Each Government will defray the expenses of the clearing office set up in its territory, including the salaries of the staff.

  16. Where the two clearing offices are unable to agree whether a debt claimed is due, or in case of a difference between an enemy debtor and an enemy creditor or between the clearing offices, the dispute shall either be referred to arbitration, if the parties so agree under conditions fixed by agreement between them, or referred to the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal provided for in Section VI hereafter.

  At the request of the Creditor Clearing Office the dispute may, however, be sub- mitted to the jurisdiction of the Courts of the place of domicile of the debtor.

  17. Recovery of sums found by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal, the Court, or the Arbitration Tribunal to be due shall be effected through the clearing offices as if these sums were debts admitted by the Debtor Clearing Office.

  18. Each of the Governments concerned shall appoint an agent who will be respon- sible for the presentation to the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal of the cases conducted on behalf of its clearing office. This agent will exercise a general control over the representatives or counsel employed by its nationals.

  Decisions will be arrived at on documentary evidence, but it will be open to the Tribunal to hear the parties in person, or according to their preference by their repre- sentatives approved by the two Governments, or by the agent referred to above, who shall be competent to intervene along with the party or to re-open and maintain a claim abandoned by the same.

19. The clearing offices concerned will lay before the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal all the information and documents in their possession, so as to enable the Tribunal to decide rapidly on the cases which are brought before it.

  20. Where one of the parties concerned appeals against the joint decision of the two clearing offices he shall make a deposit against the costs, which deposit shall only be refunded when the first judgment is modified in favour of the appellant and in propor- tion to the success he may attain, his opponent in case of such a refund being required to pay an equivalent proportion of the costs and expenses. Security accepted by the Tribunal may be substituted for a deposit.

  A fee of 5 per cent. of the amount in dispute shall be charged in respect of all cases brought before the Tribunal. This fee shall, unless the Tribunal directs otherwise, be borne by the unsuccessful party. Such fee shall be added to the deposit referred to. It is also independent of the security.

  The Tribunal may award to one of the parties a sum in respect of the expenses of the proceedings.

  Any sum payable under this paragraph shall be credited to the clearing office of the successful party as a separate item.

21. With a view to the rapid settlement of claims, due regard shall be paid in the appointment of all persons connected with the clearing offices or with the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal to their knowledge of the language of the other country concerned.. Each of the clearing offices will be at liberty to correspond with the other, and to forward documents in its own language.

    22. Subject to any special agreement to the contrary between the Governments concerned, debts shall carry interest in accordance with the following provisions :-

Interest shall not be payable on sums of money due by way of dividend, interest, or other periodical payments which themselves represent interest on capital.

The rate of interest shall be 5 per cent. per annum except in cases where, by contract, law, or custom, the creditor is entitled to payment of interest at a different rate. In such cases the rate to which he is entitled shall prevail.

    Interest shall run from the date of commencement of hostilities (or, if the sum of money to be recovered fell due during the war, from the date at which it fell due) until the sum is credited to the clearing office of the creditor.

Sums due by way of interest shall be treated as debts admitted by the clearing offices and shall be credited to the Creditor Clearing Office in the same way as such debts.

23. Where by decision of the clearing offices or the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal a claim is held not to fall within Article 296, the creditor shall be at liberty to prosecute the claim before the Courts or to take such other proceedings as may be open to him.

The presentation of a claim to the clearing office suspends the operation of any period of prescription.

24. The High Contracting Parties agree to regard the decisions of the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal as final and conclusive, and to render them binding upon their nationals.

25. In any case where a Creditor Clearing Office declines to notify a claim to the Debtor Clearing Office, or to take any step provided for in this Annex, intended to make effective in whole or in part a request of which it has received due notice, the enemy creditor shall be entitled to receive from the clearing office a certificate setting out the amount of the claim, and shall then be entitled to prosecute the claim before the Courts or to take such other proceedings as may be open to him.

SECTION IV.-PROPERTY, RIGHTS AND INTERESTS.

ARTICLE 297.

The question of private property, rights and interests in an enemy country shall be settled according to the principles laid down in this Section and to the provisions of the Annex hereto :-

(a) The exceptional war measures and measures of transfer (defined in paragraph 3 of the Annex héreto) taken by Germany with respect to the property, rights and interests of nationals of Allied or Associated Powers, including companies and associations in which they are interested, when liquidation has not been completed, shall be immediately discontinued or stayed and the property, rights, and interests concerned restored to their owners, who shall enjoy full rights therein in accordance with the provisions of Article 298.

(b) Subject to any contrary stipulations which may be provided for in the present Treaty, the Allied and Associated Powers reserve the right to retain and liquidate all property, rights, and interests belonging at the date of the coming into force of the present Treaty to German nationals, or companies controlled by them, within their territories, colonies, possessions and protectorates, in- cluding territories ceded to them by the present Treaty.

The liquidation shall be carried out in accordance with the laws of the Allied or Associated State concerned, and the German owner shall not be able to dispose of such property, rights, or interests nor to subject them to any charge without the consent of that State.

German nationals who acquire ipso facto the nationality of an Allied or Associated Power in accordance with the provisions of the present Treaty will not be considered as German nationals within the meaning of this paragraph. (c) The price or the amount of compensation in respect of the exercise of the right referred to in the preceding paragraph (b) will be fixed in accordance with the methods of sale or valuation adopted by the laws of the country in which the property has been retained or liquidated.

L

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

(d) As between the Allied and Associated Powers or their nationals on the one hand and Germany or her nationals on the other hand, all the exceptional war measures, or measures of transfer, or acts done or to be done in execution of such measures as defined in paragraphs 1 and 3 of the Annex hereto shall be considered as final and binding upon all persons except as regards the reservations laid down in the present Treaty.

(e) The nationals of Allied and Associated Powers shall be entitled to compensa- tion in respect of damage or injury inflicted upon their property, rights, or interests, including any company or association in which they are interested, in German territory as it existed on August 1, 1914, by the application either of the exceptional war measures or measures of transfer mentioned in paragraphs 1 and 3 of the Annex hereto. The claims made in this respect by such nationals shall be investigated, and the total of the compensation shall be determined by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal provided for in Section VI or by an Arbitrator appointed by that Tribunal. This compensation shall be borne by Germany, and may be charged upon the property of German nationals within the territory or under the control of the claimant's State. This property may be constituted as a pledge for enemy liabilities under the conditions fixed by paragraph 4 of the Annex hereto. The payment of this compensation may be made by the Allied or Associated State, and the amount will be debited to Germany.

(f) Whenever a national of an Allied or Associated Power is entitled to property which has been subjected to a measure of transfer in German territory and expresses a desire for its restitution, his claim for compensation in accor- dance with paragraph (e) shall be satisfied by the restitution of the said property if it still exists in specie.

In such case Germany shall take all necessary steps to restore the evicted owner to the possession of his property, free from all encumbrances or burdens with which it may have been charged after the liquidation, and to indemnify all third parties injured by the restitution.

If the restitution provided for in this paragraph cannot be effected, private agreements arranged by the intermediation of the Powers concerned or the clearing offices provided for in the Annex to Section III may be made, in order to secure that the national of the Allied or Associated Power may secure compensation for the injury referred to in paragraph (e) by the grant of advantages or equivalents which he agrees to accept in place of the property, rights, or interests of which he was deprived.

Through restitution in accordance with this Article, the price or the amount of compensation fixed by the application of paragraph (e) will be reduced by the actual value of the property restored, account being taken of compensation in respect of loss of use or deterioration.

(g) The rights conferred by paragraph (f) are reserved to owners who are nationals of Allied or Associated Powers within whose territory legislative measures prescribing the general liquidation of enemy property, rights, or interests were not applied before the signature of the Armistice.

(h) Except in cases where, by application of paragraph (ƒ), restitutions in specie have been made, the net proceeds of sales of enemy property, rights or interests, wherever situated, carried out either by virtue of war legislation, or by application of this Article, and in general all cash assets of enemies, shall be dealt with as follows:-

(1) As regards Powers adopting Section III and the Annex thereto, the said proceeds and cash assets shall be credited to the Power of which the owner is a national, through the clearing office estab- lished thereunder; any credit balance in favour of Germany resul- ting therefrom shall be dealt with as provided in Article 243. As regards Powers not adopting Section III and the Annex thereto, the proceeds of the property, rights and interests, and the cash assets, of the nationals of Allied or Associated Powers held by Germany shall be paid immediately to the person entitled thereto or to his Government; the proceeds of the property, rights and in- terests, and the cash assets, of German nationals received by an Allied or Associated Power shall be subject to disposal by such

14

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

Power in accordance with its laws and regulations and may be applied in payment of the claims and debts defined by this Article or paragraph 4 of the Annex hereto. Any property, rights and interests or proceeds thereof or cash assets not used as above pro- vided may be retained by the said Allied or Associated Power and if retained the cash value thereof shall be dealt with as provided in Article 243.

In the case of liquidations effected in new States, which are signatories of the present Treaty as Allied and Associated Powers, or in States which are not entitled to share in the reparation pay- ments to be made by Germany, the proceeds of liquidations effected by such States shall, subject to the rights of the Reparation Commis- sion under the present Treaty, particularly under Articles 235 and 260, be paid direct to the owner. If on the application of that owner, the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal, provided for by section VI of this Part or an arbitrator appointed by that Tribunal, is satisfied that the conditions of the sale or measures taken by the Government of the State in question outside its general legislation were unfairly prejudicial to the price obtained, they shall have discretion to award to the owner equitable compensation to be paid by that State. (i) Germany undertakes to compensate its nationals in respect of the sale or retention of their property, rights, or interests in Allied or Associated States. (j) The amount of all taxes and imposts upon capital levied or to be levied by Germany on the property, rights, and interests of the nationals of the Allied or Associated Powers from November 11, 1918, until three months from the coming into force of the present Treaty, or, in the case of property, rights or interests which have been subjected to exceptional measures of war, until restitution in accordance with the present Treaty, shall be restored to the

owners.

ARTICLE 298.

Germany undertakes, with regard to the property, rights and interests, including companies and associations in which they were interested, restored to nationals of Allied and Associated Powers in accordance with the provisions of Article 297, paragraph (a) or (f) :-

(a) to restore and maintain, except as expressly provided in the present Treaty, the property, rights and interests of the nationals of Allied or Associated Powers in the legal position obtaining in respect of the property, rights and interests of German nationals under the laws in force before the war;

(b) not to subject the property, rights or interests of the nationals of the Allied or Associated Powers to any measures in derogation of property rights, which are not applied equally to the property, rights and interests of German nationals, and to pay adequate compensation in the event of the application of these measures.

ANNEX.

1. In accordance with the provisions of Article 297, paragraph (d), the validity of vesting orders and of orders for the winding up of businesses or companies, and of any other orders, directions, decisions, or instructions of any Court or any Department of the Government of any of the High Contracting Parties made or given, or purporting to be made or given, in pursuance of war legislation with regard to enemy property, rights, and interests is confirmed. The interests of all persons shall be regarded as having been effectively dealt with by any order, direction, decision, or instruction dealing with property * in which they may be interested, whether or not such interests are specifically mentioned in the order, direction, decision, or instruction. No question shall be raised as to the regularity of a transfer of any property, rights or interests dealt with in pursuance of any such order, direction, decision, or instruction. Every action taken with regard to any property, business, or company, whether as regards its investigation, sequestration, compulsory administration, use, requisition, supervision, or winding. up, the sale or management of property, rights or interests, the collection or discharge of debts, the

payment of costs, charges, or expenses, or any other matter whatsoever, in pursuance of orders, directions, decisions, or instructions of any Court or of any department of the Government of any of the High Contracting Parties, made or given, or purporting to be made or given, in pursuance of war legislation with regard to enemy property, rights, or interests, is confirmed. Provided that the provisions of this paragraph shall not be held to prejudice the titles to property heretofore acquired in good faith and for value and in accordance with the laws of the country in which the property is situated by nationals of the Allied and Associated Powers.

  The provisions of this paragraph do not apply to such of the above-mentioned measures as have been taken by the German authorities in invaded or occupied territory, nor to such of the above-mentioned measures as have been taken by Germany or the German authorities since November 11th, 1918, all of which shall be void.

  2. No claim or action shall be made or brought against any Allied or Associated Power or against any person acting on behalf of or under the direction of any legal authority or Department of the Government of such a Power by Germany or by any German national wherever resident in respect of any act or omission with regard to his property, rights, or interests during the war or in preparation for the war. Similarly no claim or action shall be made or brought against any person in respect of any act or omission under or in accordance with the exceptional war measures, laws or regulations of any Allied or Associated Power.

  3. In Article 297 and this Annex the expression "exceptional war measures" includes measures of all kinds, legislative, administrative, judicial, or others, that have been taken or will be taken hereafter with regard to enemy property, and which have had or will have the effect of removing from the proprietors the power of disposition over their property, though without affecting the ownership, such as measures of supervision, of compulsory administration, and of sequestration; or measures which have had or will have as an object the seizure of, the use of, or the interference with enemy assets for whatsoever motive, under whatsoever form, or in whatsoever place. Acts in the execution of these measures include all detentions, instructions, orders, or decrees of Government departments or Courts applying these measures to enemy property, as well as acts performed by any person connected with the administration or the supervision of enemy property, such as the payment of debts, the collecting of credits, the payment of any costs, charges, or expenses, or the collecting of fees.

  Measures of transfer are those which have affected or will affect the ownership of enemy property by transferring it in whole or in part to a person other than the enemy owner, and without his consent, such as measures directing sale, liquidation, or devolution. of ownership in enemy property, or the cancelling of titles or securities.

  4. All property, rights, and interests of German nationals within the territory of any Allied or Associated Power and the net proceeds of their sale, liquidation or other dealing therewith may be charged by that Allied or Associated Power in the first place with pay- ment of amounts due in respect of claims by the nationals of that Allied or Associated Power with regard to their property, rights, and interests, including companies and associations in which they are interested, in German territory, or debts owing to them by German nationals, and with payment of claims growing out of acts committed by German Government or by any German authorities since July 31, 1914, and before that Allied or Associated Power entered into the war. The amount of such claims may be assessed by an arbitrator appointed by Mr. Gustave Ador, if he is willing, or, if no such appointment is made by him, by an arbitrator appointed by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal provided for in Section VI. They may be charged in the second place with payment of the amounts due in respect of claims by the nationals of such Allied or Associated Power with regard to their property, rights and interests in the territory of other enemy Powers, in so far as those claims are otherwise unsatisfied.

  5. Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 297, where immediately before the outbreak of war a company incorporated in an Allied or Associated State had rights in common with a company controlled by it and incorporated in Germany to the use of trade-marks in third countries, or enjoyed the use in common with such company of unique means of reproduction of goods or articles for sale in third countries, the former company shall alone have the right to use these trade-marks in third countries to the exclusion of the German company, and these unique means of reproduction shall be handed over to the former company, notwithstanding any action under German war legislation with regard to the latter company or its business, industrial property or shares.

16

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

Nevertheless, the former company, if requested, shall deliver to the latter company derivative copies permitting the continuation of reproduction of articles for use within German territory.

6. Up to the time when restitution is carried out in accordance with Article 297, Germany is responsible for the conservation of property, rights, and interests of the nationals of Allied or Associated Powers, including companies and associations in which they are interested, that have been subjected by her to exceptional war measures.

7. Within one year from the coming into force of the present Treaty the Allied or Associated Powers will specify the property, rights, and interests over which they intend to exercise the right provided in Article 297, paragraph (ƒ).

    8. The restitution provided in Article 297 will be carried out by order of the German Government or of the authorities which have been substituted for it. Detailed accounts of the action of administrators shall be furnished to the interested persons by the German authorities upon request, which may be made at any time after the coming into force of the present Treaty.

    9. Until completion of the liquidation provided for by Article 297 paragraph (b), the property, rights, and interests of German nationals will continue to be subject to excep- tional war measures that have been or will be taken with regard to them.

    10. Germany will, within six months from the coming into force of the present Treaty, deliver to each Allied or Associated Power all securities, certificates, deeds, or other documents of title held by its nationals and relating to property, rights, or interests situated in the territory of that Allied or Associated Power, including any shares, stock, debentures, debenture stock, or other obligations of any company incorporated in accordance with the laws of that Power.

    Germany will at any time on demand of any Allied or Associated Power furnish such information as may be required with regard to the property, rights, and interests of German nationals within the territory of such Allied or Associated Power, or with regard to any transaction concerning such property, rights or interests effected since July, 1, 1914.

    11. The expression "cash assets" includes all deposits or funds established before or after the declaration of war, as well as all assets coming from deposits, revenues, or profits collected by administrators, sequestrators, or others from funds placed on deposit or otherwise, but does not include sums belonging to the Allied or Associated Powers or to their component States, Provinces, or Municipalities.

     12. All investments wheresoever effected with the cash assets of nationals of the High Contracting Parties, including companies and associations in which such nationals were interested, by persons responsible for the administration of enemy properties or having control over such administration, or by order of such persons or of any authority whatsoever, shall be annulled. These cash assets shall be accounted for irrespective of any such investment.

13. Within one month from the coming into force of the present Treaty, or on demand at any time, Germany will deliver to the Allied and Associated Powers all accounts, vouchers, records, documents, and information of any kind which may be with- in German territory, and which concern the property, rights, and interests of the nationals of those Powers, including companies and associations in which they are interested, that have been subjected to an exceptional war measure, or to a measure of transfer either in German territory or in territory occupied by Germany or her allies.

    The controllers, supervisors, managers, administrators, sequestrators, liquidators, and receivers shall be personally responsible under guarantee of the German Government for the immediate delivery in full of these accounts and documents, and for their accuracy.

    14. The provisions of Article 297 and this Annex relating to property, rights, and interests in an enemy country, and the proceeds of the liquidation thereof, apply to debts, credits, and accounts, Section III. regulating only the method of payment.

    In the settlement of matters provided for in Article 297 between Germany and the Allied or Associated States, their colonies. or protectorates, or any one of the British Dominions or India, in respect of any of which a declaration shall not have been made that they adopt Section III., and between their respective nationals, the provisions of Section

15. The provisions of Article 297 and this Annex apply to industrial, literary and artistic property which has been or will be dealt with in the liquidation of property, rights, interests, companies or businesses under war legislation by the Allied or Associated Powers, or in accordance with the stipulations of Article 297, paragraph (b).

SECTION V.-CONTRACTS, PRESCRIPTIONS, JUDGMENTS.

ARTICLE 299.

(b) Any contract of which the execution shall be required in the general interest, within six months from the date of the coming into force of the present Treaty, by the Allied or Associated Governments of which one of the parties is a national, shall be excepted from dissolution under this Article.

When the execution of the contract thus kept alive would, owing to the alteration of trade conditions, cause one of the parties substantial prejudice the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal provided for by Section VI. shall be empowered to grant to the prejudiced party equitable compensation.

  (e) Having regard to the provisions of the Constitution and law of the United States of America, of Brazil, and of Japan, neither the present Article, nor Article 300, nor the Annex hereto shall apply to contracts made between nationals of these States and German nationals; nor shall Article 305 apply to the United States of America or its nationals.

  (d) The present Article and the Annex hereto shall not apply to contracts the parties to which became enemies by reason of one of them being an inhabitant of territory of which the sovereignty has been transferred, if such party shall acquire under the present Treaty the nationality of an Allied or Associated Power, nor shall they apply to contracts between nationals of the Allied and Associated Powers between whom trading has been prohibited by reason of one of the parties being in Allied or Associated territory in the occupation of the enemy.

  (e) Nothing in the present Article or the Annex hereto shall be deemed to invalidate a transaction lawfully carried out in accordance with a contract between enemies if it has been carried out with the authority of one of the belligerent Powers.

ARTICLE 300.

  (a) All periods of prescription, or limitation of right of action, whether they began to run before or after the outbreak of war, shall be treated in the territory of the High Contracting Parties, so far as regards relations between enemies, as having been suspend- ed for the duration of the war. They shall begin to run again at earliest three months after the coming into force of the present Treaty. This provision shall apply to the period prescribed for the presentation of interest or dividend coupons or for the present- ation for repayment of securities drawn for repayment or repayable on any other ground.

  (b) Where, on account of failure to perform any act or comply with any formality during the war, measures of execution have been taken in German territory to the prejudice of a national of an Allied or Associated Power, the claim of such national shall, if the matter does not fall within the competence of the Courts of an Allied or Associated Power, be heard by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal provided for by Section VI.

18

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

    (c) Upon the application of any interested person who is a national of an Allied or Associated Power the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal shall order the restoration of the rights which have been prejudiced by the measures of execution referred to in paragraph (b), wherever, having regard to the particular circumstances of the case, such restoration is equitable and possible.

    If such restoration is inequitable or impossible the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal may grant compensation to the prejudiced party to be paid by the German Government.

    (d) Where a contract between enemies has been dissolved by reason either of failure on the part of either party to carry out its provisions or of the exercise of a right stipu- lated in the contract itself the party prejudiced may apply to the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal for relief. The Tribunal will have the powers provided for in paragraph (c).

(e) The provisions of the preceding paragraphs of this Article shall apply to the nationals of Allied and Associated Powers who have been prejudiced by reason of measures referred to above taken by Germany in invaded or occupied territory, if they have not been otherwise compensated.

(f) Germany shall compensate any third party who may be prejudiced by any restitution or restoration ordered by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal under the provisions of the preceding paragraphs of this Article.

ARTICLE 301.

    As between enemies no negotiable instrument made before the war shall be deemed to have become invalid by reason only of failure within the required time to present the instrument for acceptance or payment or to give notice of non-acceptance or non-payment to drawers or indorsers or to protest the instrument, nor by reason of failure to complete any formality during the war.

Where the period within which a negotiable instrument should have been presented for acceptance or for payment, or within which notice of non-acceptance or non-payment should have been given to the drawer or indorser, or within which the instrument should have been protested has elapsed during the war, and the party who should have presented or protested the instrument or have given notice of non-acceptance or non-payment has failed to do so during the war, a period of not less than three months from the coming into force of the present Treaty shall be allowed within which presentation, notice of non-acceptance or non-payment or protest may be nrade.

ARTICLE 302.

Judgments given by the Courts of an Allied or Associated Power in all cases which, under the present Treaty, they are competent to decide, shall be recognised in Germany as final, and shall be enforced without it being necessary to have them declared executory.

If a judgment in respect of any dispute which may have arisen has been given during the war by a German Court against a national of an Allied or Associated State in a case in which he was not able to make his defence, the Allied and Associated national who has suffered prejudice thereby shall be entitled to recover compensation, to be fixed by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal provided for in Section VI.

    At the instance of the national of the Allied or Associated Power the compensation above mentioned may, upon order to that effect of the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal, be effected where it is possible by replacing the parties in the situation which they occupied before the judgment was given by the German Court.

The above compensation may likewise be obtained before the Mixed Arbitral Tribu- nal by the nationals of Allied or Associated Powers who have suffered prejudice by judicial measures taken in invaded or occupied territories, if they have not been otherwise compensated.

Fire Insurance.

    9. Contracts for the insurance of property against fire entered into by a person interested in such property with another person who subsequently became an enemy shall not be deemed to have been dissolved by the outbreak of war, or by the fact of the person becoming an enemy, or on account of the failure during the war and for a period of three months thereafter to perform his obligations under the contract, but they shall be dissolved at the date when the annual premium becomes payable for the first time after the expiration of a period of three months after the coming into force of the present Treaty.

The assets to be handed. over shall be determined by an actuary appointed by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal.

13. Where contracts of life insurance have been entered into by a local branch of an insurance company established in a country which subsequently became an enemy country, the contract shall, in the absence of any stipulation to the contrary in the contract itself be governed by the local law, but the insurer shall be entitled to demand from the insured or his representatives the refund of sums paid on claims made or enforced under measures taken during the war, if the making or enforcement of such claims was not in accordance with the terms of the contract itself or was not consistent with the laws or treaties existing at the time when it was entered into.

  14. In any case whereby the law applicable to the contract the insurer remains bound by the contract, notwithstanding the non-payment of premiums, until notice is given to the insured of the termination of the contract, he shall be entitled, where the giving of such notice was prevented by the war, to recover the unpaid premiums with interest at five per cent. per annum from the insured.

15. Insurance contracts shall be considered as contracts of life assurance for the purpose of paragraphs 11 to 14 when they depend on the probabilities of human life combined with the rate of interest for the calculation of the reciprocal engagements between the two parties.

Marine Insurance.

  16. Contracts of marine insurance including time policies and voyage policies entered into between an insurer and a person who subsequently became an enemy, shall be deemed to have been dissolved on his becoming an enemy, except in cases where the risk undertaken in the contract had attached before he became an enemy.

  Where the risk had not attached, money paid by way of premium or otherwise shall be recoverable from the insurer.

  Where the risk had attached effect shall be given to the contract notwithstanding the party becoming an enemy, and sums due under the contract either by way of premiums or in respect of losses shall be recoverable after the coming into force of the present Treaty.

  In the event of any agreement being come to for the payment of interest on sums due before the war to or by the nationals of States which have been at war and recover- ed after the war, such interest shall in the case of losses recoverable under contracts of marine insurance run from the expiration of a period of one year from the date of the loss.

  17. No contract of marine insurance with an insured person who subsequently be- came an enemy shall be deemed to cover losses due to belligerent action by the Power of which the insurer was a national or by the allies or associates of such Power.

  18. Where it is shown that a person who had before the war entered into a contract of marine insurance with an insurer who subsequently became an enemy entered after the outbreak of war into a new contract covering the same risk with an insurer who was not an enemy, the new contract shall be deemed to be substituted for the original con- tract as from the date when it was entered into, and the premiums payable shall be ad- justed on the basis of the original insurer having remained liable on the contract only up till the time when the new contract was entered into.

Other Insurances.

19. Contracts of insurance entered into before the war between an insurer and a person who subsequently became an enemy, other than contracts dealt with in paragraphs 9 to 18 shall be treated in all respects on the same footing as contracts of fire insurance between the same persons would be dealt with under the said paragraphs.

22

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

Reinsurance.

20. All treaties of reinsurance with a person who became an enemy shall be regard- ed as having been abrogated by the person becoming an enemy, but without prejudice. in the case of life or marine risks which had attached before the war to the right to re- cover payment after the war for sums due in respect of such risks.

Nevertheless if, owing to invasion, it has been impossible for the reinsured to find another reinsurer, the treaty shall remain in force until three months after the coming into force of the present treaty.

Where a reinsurance treaty becomes void under this paragraph, there shall be an adjustment of accounts between the parties in respect both of premiums paid and payable and of liabilities for losses in respect of life or marine risk which had attached before the war. In the case of risks other than those mentioned in paragraphs 11 to 18 the adjust- ment of accounts shall be made as at the date of the parties becoming enemies without regard to claims for losses which may have occurred since that date.

21. The provisions of the preceding paragraph will extend equally to reinsurances existing at the date of the parties becoming enemies of particular risks undertaken by the insurer in a contract of insurance against any risks other than life or marine risks.

22. Reinsurance of life risks effected by particular contracts and not under any general treaty remain in force.

The provisions of paragraph 12 apply to treaties of reinsurance of life insurance contracts in which enemy companies are the reinsurers.

    23. In case of a reinsurance effected before the war of a contract of marine insurance, the cession of a risk which had been ceded to the reinsurer shall, if it had attached before the outbreak of war, remain valid and effect be given to the contract notwithstanding the outbreak of war; sums due under the contract or reinsurance in respect either of premiums or of losses shall be recoverable after the war.

24. The provisions of paragraphs 17 and 18 and the last part of paragraph 16 shall apply to contracts for the reinsurance of marine risks.

RBITRAL

SECTION VI.-MIXED ARBITRAL TRIBUNAL.

ARTICLE 304.

   (a) Within three months from the date of the coming into force of the present Treaty, a Mixed Arbitral Tribunal shall be established between each of the Allied and Associated Powers on the one hand and Germany on the other hand. Each such Tribunal shall consist of three members. Each of the Governments concerned shall appoint one of these members. The President shall be chosen by agreement between the two Governments concerned.

In case of failure to reach agreement, the President of the Tribunal and two other persons, either of whom may in case of need take his place, shall be chosen by the Council of the League of Nations, or, until. this is set up, by M. Gustave Ador if he is willing. These persons shall be nationals of Powers that have remained neutral during the war.

If any Government does not proceed within a period of one month in case there is a vacancy to appoint a member of the Tribunal, such member shall be chosen by the other Government from the two persons mentioned above other than the President.

The decision of the majority of the members of the Tribunal shall be the decision of the Tribunal.

   (b) The Mixed Arbitral Tribunals established pursuant to paragraph (a) shall decide all questions within their competence under Sections III., IV., V. and VII.,

   In addition, all questions, whatsoever their nature, relating to contracts concluded before the coming into force of the present Treaty between nationals of the Allied and Associated Powers and German nationals shall be decided by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal, always excepting questions which, under the laws of the Allied, Associated or Neutral Powers, are within the jurisdiction of the National Courts of those Powers. Such ques- tions shall be decided by the National Courts in question, to the exclusion of the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal. The party who is a national of an Allied or Associated Power may nevertheless bring the case before the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal if this is not prohibited by the laws of his country.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

23

  (e) If the number of cases justifies it, additional members shall be appointed and each Mixed Arbitral Tribunal shall sit in divisions. Each of these divisions will be constituted as above.

(d) Each Mixed Arbitral Tribunal will settle its own procedure except in so far as it is provided in the following Annex, and is empowered to award the sums to be paid by the loser in respect of the costs and expenses of the proceedings.

  (e) Each Government will pay the remuneration of the member of the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal appointed by it and of any agent whom it may appoint to represent it before the Tribunal. The remuneration of the President will be determined by special agreement between the Governments concerned; and this remuneration and the joint expenses of each Tribunal will be paid by the two Governments in equal moieties.

  (f) The High Contracting Parties agree that their courts and authorities shall render to the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal direct all the assistance in their power, particularly as regards transmitting notices and collecting evidence.

(g) The High Contracting Parties agree to regard the decisions of the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal as final and conclusive, and to render them binding upon their nationals.

ANNEX.

1. Should one of the members of the Tribunal either die, retire, or be unable for any reason whatever to discharge his functions, the same procedure will be followed for filling the vacancy as was followed for appointing him.

2. The Tribunal may adopt such rules of procedure as shall be in accordance with justice and equity and decide the order and time at which each party must conclude its arguments, and may arrange all formalities required for dealing with the evidence.

  3. The agent and counsel of the parties on each side are authorised to present orally and in writing to the Tribunal arguments in support or in defence of each case.

  4. The Tribunal shall keep record of the questions and cases submitted and the proceedings thereon, with the dates of such proceedings.

5. Each of the Powers concerned may appoint a secretary. These secretaries shall act together as joint secretaries of the Tribunal and shall be subject to its direction. The Tribunal may appoint and employ any other necessary officer or officers to assist in the performance of its duties.

  6. The Tribunal shall decide all questions and matters submitted upon such evidence and information as may be furnished by the parties concerned.

  7. Germany agrees to give the Tribunal all facilities and information required by it for carrying out its investigations.

8. The language in which the proceedings shall be conducted shall, unless otherwise agreed, be English, French, Italian, or Japanese, as may be determined by the Allied or Associated Power concerned.

9. The place and time for the meetings of each Tribunal shall be determined by the President of the Tribunal.

ARTICLE 305.

Whenever a competent Court has given or gives a decision in a case covered by Sections III, IV, V, or VII, and such decision is inconsistent with the provisions of such Sections, the party who is prejudiced by the decision shall be entitled to obtain redress which shall be fixed by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal. At the request of the national of an Allied or Associated Power, the redress may whenever possible, be effected by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal directing the replacement of the parties in the position. occupied by them before the judgment was given by the German Court.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

SECTION VII.-INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY.

ARTICLE 306.

Subject to the stipulations of the present Treaty, rights of industrial, literary, and artistic property, as such property is defined by the International Conventions of Paris and of Berne, mentioned in Article 286, shall be re-established or restored, as from the coming into force of the present Treaty, in the territories of the High Contracting Parties, in favour of the persons entitled to the benefit of them at the moment when the state of war commenced or their legal representatives. Equally, rights which, except for the war, would have been acquired during the war in consequence of an application made for the protection of industrial property, or the publication of a literary or artistic work, shall be recognised and established in favour of those persons who would have been entitled thereto, from the coming into force of the present Treaty..

Nevertheless, all acts done by virtue of the special measures taken during the war under legislative, executive or administrative authority of any Allied or Associated Power in regard to the rights of German nationals in industrial, literary or artistic property shall remain in force and shall continue to maintain their full effect.

No claim shall be made or action brought by Germany or German nationals in re- spect of the use during the war by the Government of any Allied or Associated Power, 'or by any persons acting on behalf or with the assent of such Government, of any rights in industrial, literary or artistic property, nor in respect of the sale, offering for sale, or use of any products, articles or apparatus whatsoever to which such rights applied.

Unless the legislation of any one of the Allied or Associated Powers in force at the moment of the signature of the present Treaty otherwise directs, sums due or paid in virtue of any act or operation resulting from the execution of the special measures men- tioned in paragraph I of this Article shall be dealt with in the same way as other sums due to Gerivan nationals are directed to be dealt with by the present Treaty; and sums. produced by any special ensures taken by the German Government in respect of rights in industrial, literary or artistic property belonging to the nationals of the Allied or Associated Powers shall be considered and treated in the same way as other debts due from German nationals.

Each of the Allied and Associated Powers reserves to itself the right to impose such limitations, conditions, or restrictions on rights of industrial, literary, or artistic property. (with the exception of trade-marks) acquired before or during the war, or which may be subsequently nequired in accordance with its legislation, by German nationals, whether by granting licences, or by the working, or by preserving control over their exploitation, or in any other way, as may be considered mecessary for national defence, or in the public interest, or for assuring the fair treatment by Germany of the rights of industrial, literary, and artistic property held in German territory by its nationals, or for securing the due fulfilment of all the obligations undertaken by Germany in the present Treaty, As regards rights of industrial, literary, and artistic property acquired after the coming into force of the present Treaty, the right so reserved by the Allied and Associated Powers shall only be exercised in cases where these limitations, conditions, or restrictions may be considered necessary for national defence or in the public interest.

In the event of the application of the provisions of the preceding paragraph by any Allied or Associated Power, there shall be paid reasonable indemnities or royalties which shall be dealt with in the same way as other sums due to German nationals are directed to be dealt with by the present Treaty.

Each of the Allied or Associated Powers reserves the right to treat as void and of no effect any transfer in whole or in part of or other dealing with rights or in respect of industrial, literary, or artistic property effected after August 1, 1914, or in the future, which would have the result of defeating the objects of the provisions of this Article.

The provisions of this article shall not apply to rights in industrial, literary, or artistic property which have been dealt with in the liquidation of businesses or companies under war legislation by the Allied or Associated Powers, or which may be so dealt with by virtue of Article 297, paragraph (6).

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

ARTICLE 307.

25

A minimum of one year after the coming into force of the present Treaty shall be accorded to the nationals of the High Contracting Parties, without extension fees or other penalty, in order to enable such persons to accomplish any act, fulfil any formality, pay any fees, and generally satisfy any obligation prescribed by the laws or regulations of the respective States relating to the obtaining, preserving, or opposing rights to, or in respect of, industrial property either acquired before August 1, 1914, or which, except for the war, might have been acquired since that date as a result of an application made before the war or during its continuance, but nothing in this Article shall give any right to reopen interference proceedings in the United States of America where a final hearing has taken place.

   All rights in, or in respect of, such property, which may have lapsed by reason of any failure to accomplish any act, fulfil any formality, or make any payment, shall revive, but subject in the case of patents and designs to the imposition of such conditions as each Allied or Associated Power may deem reasonably necessary for the protection of persons who have manufactured or made use of the subject matter of such property while the rights had lapsed. Further, where rights to patents or designs belonging to German nationals are revived under this article, they shall be subject in respect of the grant of licences to the same provisions as would have been applicable to them during the war, as well as to all the provisions of the present Treaty.

   The period from August 1, 1914, until the coming into force of the present Treaty. shall be excluded in considering the time within which a patent should be worked or a trade mark or design used, and it is further agreed that no patent registered trade mark, or design in force on August 1, 1914, shall be subject to revocation or cancellation by reason only of the failure to work such patent or use such trade mark or design for two years after the coming into force of the present Treaty.

ARTICLE 308.

   The rights of priority, provided by Article IV. of the International Convention for the Protection of Industrial Property of Paris, of March 20, 1883, revised at Washington in 1911 or by any other Convention or Statute, for the filing or registration of applica- tions for patents or models of utility, and for the registration of trade marks, designs, and models which had not expired on August 1, 1914, and those which have arisen during the war, or would have arisen but for the war, shall be extended by each of the High Contracting Parties in favour of all nationals of the other High Contracting Parties for a period of six months after the coming into force of the present Treaty.

   Nevertheless, such extension shall in no way affect the right of any of the High Contracting Parties or of any person who before the coming into force of the present Treaty was bonâ fide in possession of any rights of industrial property conflicting with rights applied for by another who claims rights of priority in respect of them, to exercise such rights by itself or himself personally, or by such agents or licensees as derived their rights from it or him before the coming into force of the present Treaty; and such per- sons shall not be amenable to any action or other process of law in respect of infringement.

ARTICLE 309.

   No action shall be brought and no claim made by persons residing or carrying on business within the territories of Germany on the one part and of the Allied or Associated Powers on the other, or persons who are nationals of such Powers respectively, or by any one deriving title during the war from such persons, by reason of any action which has taken place within the territory of the other party between the date of the declaration of war and that of the coming into force of the present Treaty, which might constitute an infringement of the rights of industrial property or rights of literary and artistic property, either existing at any time during the war or revived under the provisions of Articles 307 and 308.

   Equally, no action for infringement of industrial, literary, or artistic property rights by such persons shall at any time be permissible in respect of the sale or offering for sale for a period of one year after the signature of the present Treaty in the territories of the Allied or Associated Powers on the one hand or Germany on the other, of products or articles manufactured, or of literary or artistic works published during the period between

26

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 9, 1920.

the declaration of war and the signature of the present Treaty, or against those who have acquired and continue to use them. It is understood, nevertheless, that this provision. shall not apply when the possessor of the rights was domiciled or had an industrial or commercial establishment in the districts occupied by Germany during the war.

This Article shall not apply as between the United States of America on the one hand and Germany on the other.

ARTICLE 310.

Licences in respect of industrial, literary, or artistic property concluded before the war between nationals of the Allied or Associated Powers or persons residing in their territory or carrying on business therein, on the one part, and German nationals, on the other part, shall be considered as cancelled as from the date of the declaration of war between Germany and the Allied or Associated Power. But, in any case, the former beneficiary of a contract of this kind shall have the right, within a period of six months after the coming into force of the present Treaty, to demand from the proprietor of the rights the grant of a new licence, the conditions of which, in default of agreement between the parties, shall be fixed by the duly qualified tribunal in the country under whose legislation the rights have been acquired, except in the case of licences held in respect of rights acquired under German law. In such cases the conditions shall be fixed by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal referred to in Section VI. of this Part. The tribunal may, if necessary, fix also the amount which it may deem just should be paid by reason of the use of the rights during the war.

No licence in respect of industrial, literary, or artistic property, granted under the special war legislation of any Allied or Associated Power, shall be affected by the contin- ued existence of any licence entered into before the war, but shall remain valid and of full effect, and a licence so granted to the former beneficiary of a licence entered into before the war shall be considered as substituted for such licence.

Where sums have been paid during the war by virtue of a licence or agreement concluded before the war in respect of rights of industrial property or for the reproduction or the representation of literary, dramatic, or artistic works, these sums shall be dealt with in the same manner as other debts or credits of German nationals, as provided by the present Treaty.

This Article shall not apply as between the United States of America on the one hand and Germany on the other.

ARTICLE 311.

The inhabitants of territories separated from Germany by virtue of the present Treaty shall, notwithstanding this separation and the change of nationality consequent thereon, continue to enjoy in Germany all the rights in industrial, literary, and artistic property to which they were entitled under German legislation at the time of the separation.

   Rights of industrial, literary, and artistic property which are in force in the territories separated from Germany under the present Treaty at the moment of the separation of these territories from Germany or which will be re-established or restored in accordance. with the provisions of Article 306 of the present Treaty, shall be recognised by the State. to which the said territory is transferred and shall remain in force in that territory for the same period of time given them under the German law.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 30, 1920.

53

  The Minutes of the Meetings held on the 30th and 31st October, 1919, were con- firmed.

PAPERS. The Colonial Secretary laid on the table the following papers :----

Report of the Public Works Committee (No. 5) dated the 14th November, 1919, on the proposal to erect a small trough-closet and urinal at Barker Road Station.

Return of Excesses on Sub-Heads met by Savings under Heads of Expenditure,

for the 3rd Quarter of 1919.

Regulations made by the Governor in Council under section 6 of the Places of Public Entertainment Regulation Ordinance, 1919, Ordinance No. 22 of 1919, on the 6th day of November, 1919.

  NOTICE OF MOTION.--Mr. POLLOCK gave notice that he will move the following two Resolutions at the next meeting of the Council:-

1.-That, with a view to giving facilities for commercial expansion, a Committee of the Legis- lative Council be appointed, consisting of His Excellency the General Officer Command- ing and two Official and three Unofficial Members of the Legislative Council, for the purpose of considering and reporting to this Council upon the resumption by the Hong- kong Government of the Military Establishments on the Queen's Road and the terms and conditions of such resumption.

2.-That the various Housing Schemes for different sections of the community in various districts of the Colony be now referred by the Government to the Public Works Committee of the Legislative Council, with power to that Committee to make suggestions as to the carrying out and financing of such schemes and as to the improvement of the methods of communication with the outlying districts which are sought to be developed by such

schemes.

QUESTIONS.-Mr. JOHNSTONE, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions:-

1. Will the Government give any information regarding the present dispute concerning the pay

of certain recently arrived Europeans for the Police Force?

2. In view of the recent armed robberies and acts of violence committed in the heart of the City do the Government consider the present Police Force (including the recently joined members) of sufficient strength to adequately deal with same either (1) by increasing the number on point duty or (2) patrol duty?

3. If, as seems reasonable in view of recent events, the reply to question No. 2 is in the nega- tive, will the Government give any information regarding the steps to be taken or which have already been taken to increase the numbers of the European Police Force?

4. In view of the greatly increased cost of living in this Colony as elsewhere in the world will the Government consider the advisability of a substantial increase in the pay of the N.C.O's and men on the European Branch of the Force ?

5. What would an increase of 30% on these men's salaries cost the Government?

6. If the reply to question No. 4 is in the negative will the Government consent to the forma-

tion of a committee to enquire into the matter, and

7. Will they appoint as members of that committee two or more civilians whose knowledge of the position by reason of their employment of considerable numbers of European workers best fits them to give authoritative advice on the subject?

The Colonial Secretary replied.

   FINANCIAL MINUTES.-The Colonial Secretary laid on the table Financial Minutes Nos. 126 to 172, and moved that they be referred to the Finance Committee:-

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY.

LORD SOMERLEYTON.

LORD PRESIDENT.

LORD CHAMBERLAIN.

SIR FREDERICK PONSONBY.

THEREAS at Versailles, on the 28th day of June, 1919, a Treaty of Peace with Germany (hereinafter referred to as "the Treaty") was signed on behalf of His Majesty; and

   Whereas it was provided in the Treaty that the property of German nationals within the territory or under the control of an Allied or Associated State might be constituted a pledge for enemy liabilities upon the conditions laid down in the Treaty; and

Whereas by the Treaty of Peace Act, 1919, it was provided that His Majesty might make such appointments, establish such offices, make such Orders in Council, and do such things as appeared to Him to be necessary for carrying out the Treaty, and for giving effect to any of the provisions thereof; and

Whereas by Treaty, grant, usage, sufferance, or other lawful means His Majesty has power and jurisdiction in China; and

Whereas there is now in China certain property of German nationals under the control of His Majesty, and it is expedient to make provision for charging such property with the payment of the liabilities for which it may be constituted a pledge by the Treaty in the manner hereinafter provided :

NOW, THEREFORE, His Majesty, by virtue and in exercise of the powers in this behalf by the Foreign Jurisdiction Act, 1890, or otherwise in Him vested, is pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to order, and it is hereby ordered, as follows:-

1. All property rights and interests in China belonging to German nationals at the date when the Treaty comes into force (not being property rights or interests acquired under any general licence issued by or on behalf of His Majesty) and the net proceeds of their sale, liquidation, or other dealings therewith, so far as such property rights and interests or such net proceeds are vested in or otherwise under the control of the Custo- dian of enemy property or other British authority under the Trading with the Enemy Acts or the Trading with the Enemy Regulations, are hereby charged :-

(a) First, with payment of the amounts due in respect of claims by British nationals with regard to their property rights and interests, including companies and associations in which they are interested in German ter- ritory, or debts owing to them by German nationals, and with payment of any compensation awarded by the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal or by an arbitrator appointed by that Tribunal in pursuance of paragraph (e) of Article 297 of the Treaty, and with payment of claims growing out of acts committed by the German Government or by German authorities since the 31st July, 1914, and before the 4th August, 1914.

(b) Secondly, with payment of the amounts due in respect of claims by British nationals with regard to their property rights and interests in the ter- ritories of Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria, and Turkey in so far as those claims are not otherwise satisfied.

Provided that any particular property rights or interests so charged may at any time, if the Minister thinks fit, be released from the charge so created.

\

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JANUARY 30, 1920.

to which exports of all arms and ammunition-for sporting as well as military purposes -is to be prohibited unless under special licence, and throughout which close supervi- sion is to be exercised on the sale and transfer of all arms and ammunition.

The complete text of the Convention (French and English) has been published by the Foreign Office as Treaty Series No. 12 (1919) "-reference number Cmd. 414, price 3d. per copy, exclusive of postage.

FINDING.

  We find that the S.S. Kaifong, Official Number 95430 of London, Master ERNEST BERESFORD JONES, Certificate of Competency as Master No. 031087 Liverpool, sailed from Pakhoi for Haiphong at 4.15 p.m., 19th December, 1919. At 5.7 p.m. ship's positiou was verified by cross bearings and course set S. 61° W. (true) to pass 11' miles outside Norway Islands.

  Nothing was sighted except lights of passing vessels, though the night was clear, though dark. At 2.39 the ship struck on shoal to North of Siong Lai Tao, which is 10' miles from estimated position of ship. There is no evidence of the ship having been off her course at any time.

  We are of opinion that the ship must have experienced a strong set to Westward which may be regarded as unusual, and not to be anticipated.

The master took all necessary steps before and after stranding.

No. 112. The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 19th February, 1920, to enquire into the circumstances in connection with the stranding of the Steamship Hong Wan I, is published for general information.

FINDING.

We find that the British S.S. Hong Wan I, Official Number 73866 of Singapore, Master HAROLD PERCY ROBINSON, the number of whose certificate of competency as master is 3701 (Singapore), left Kulangsu Harbour, Amoy, at 6.20 p.m. on 9th January, 1920, on a voyage to Swatow, with a general cargo, and 1,113 Chinese passengers. That the weather was foggy, and though at the time the pilot was dropped the light on Tsing Seu Island was visible at a distance of 5 miles, nothing was visible shortly afterwards. That the ship struck on the rocks to N.W. of Hwanghwa Island at 7.20 p.m.

   We consider that the cause of the casualty was an unexpected Easterly set, which carried ship one mile out of her course.

   We are of opinion that, although the master was justified in relying upon the arrows, indicating the set of the tides, marked on Admiralty Chart No. 1767, he was ill-advised in continuing on his course under the circumstances, which included the fact that the fog obscured all marks: and in proceeding at full speed in such narrow waters, after losing sight of the light which he was approaching.

   There being no evidence of negligence or incompetence or misconduct on the part of the master or other officer of the ship, and all necessary steps for the safety of the ship, cargo, and passengers having been taken after the stranding, we do not consider it necessary to deal with certificates of competency.

   Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this Nineteenth day of February, 1920.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 26, 1920.

The reply thereto is as follows :

66

'The inconvenience cannot be remedied by any action of this Government as it is due to the abnormal shipping conditions at the present time. The Postal Authorities in London endeavour to send the mails by the quickest route available and the recent exceptional delays in the delivery of certain mails were due to the delay and diversion of vessels of the Ocean Steamship Company for purposes which were not known to the Postal Authorities at the time when the mails were put on board.

It has now been arranged that all mails will be despatched by the Indian mail, that is by the weekly service cia Marseilles, Bombay and Negapatam and it is hoped that this arrangement will prove more satisfactory."

AT THE COURT AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE,

THE 9TH DAY OF FEBRUARY, 1920.

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

HEREAS by the Termination of the Present War (Definition) Act, 1918, it is provided that His Majesty in Council may declare what date is to be treated as the date of the termination of the present war, and that the date so declared shall be as nearly as may be the date of the exchange or deposit of ratifications of the treaty or treaties of peace, and that His Majesty may also similarly declare what date is to be treated as the date of the termination of war between His Majesty and any particular State:

   And whereas at Versailles on the twenty-eighth day of June, nineteen hundred and nineteen, a treaty of peace between the Allied and Associated Powers and Germany was signed on behalf of His Majesty:

   And whereas by the said treaty of peace it was provided that a procès-verbal of the deposit of ratifications should be drawn up as soon as the treaty had been ratified by Germany on the one hand and by three of the principal Allied or Associated Powers on the other, and that from the date of the said procès-verbal the treaty would come into force between the high contracting parties who had ratified it:

   And whereas the said treaty having been ratified by Germany and three of the prin- cipal Allied and Associated Powers, including His Majesty, such a procès-verbal as afore- said has been drawn up dated the tenth day of January, nineteen hundred and twenty:

   And whereas treaties of peace with other belligerents not having yet been ratified it is desirable to declare the date which is to be treated as the date of the termination of war with Germany before declaring the date which is to be treated as the date of the termination of the present war:

   Now, therefore, His Majesty, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, is pleased to order, and it is hereby ordered, that the said tenth day of January shall be treated as the date of the termination of war between His Majesty and Germany.

  No. 180. The following Order of His Majesty the King in Council, which appeared in the London Gazette of the 10th February, 1920, is published for general information.

AT THE COURT AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE, THE 9TH DAY OF FEBRUARY, 1920.

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY.

WH

LORD PRESIDENT.

EARL CURZON OF KEDLESTON.

LORD COLEBROOKE.

SIR FREDERICK PONSONBY.

HEREAS by reason of conditions arising out of the war difficulties have been experienced by citizens of the United States of America in complying with the requirements of the Copyright Act, 1911, as to first publication within the parts of His Majesty's Dominions to which the Act extends of their works first published in the United States of America during the war:

And whereas His Majesty is advised that the Government of the United States of America has undertaken, upon issue of this Order, to extend the protection afforded by United States Law of December 18, 1919, entitled "An Act to amend Sections 8 and 21 of the Copyright Act, approved March 4, 1909, " to British subjects:

And whereas by reason of the said undertaking of the Government of the United States of America His Majesty is satisfied that the said Government has made, or has undertaken to make, such provision as it is expedient to require for the protection of works first made or published between the 1st August, 1914, and the termination of the war in the parts of His Majesty's Dominions to which this Order applies, and entitled to copyright under Part I of the Copyright Act, 1911:

  And whereas by the Copyright Act, 1911, authority is conferred upon His Majesty te 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 by reason of these premises it is desirable to provide protection within the said Dominions for literary or artistic works first pubished in the United States of America between August 1, 1914, and the termination of the war which have failed to accomplish the formalities prescribed by the Copyright Act, 1911, by reason of conditions arising out of the war:

  Now, therefore, His Majesty, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, and by virtue of the authority conferred upon Him by the Copyright Act, 1911, is pleased to order, and it is hereby ordered, as follows:-

1. The Copyright Act, 1911, shall, subject to the provisions of the said Act and of this Order, apply to works first published in the United States of America between the 1st August, 1914, and the termination of the war, which have not been republished prior to the commencement of this Order in the parts of His Majesty's Dominions to which this Order applies, in like manner as if they had been first published within the parts of His Majesty's Dominions to which the said Act extends :

Provided that the enjoyment by any work of the rights conferred by the Copyright Act, 1911, shall be conditional upon publication of the work in the Dominions to which this Order relates not later than six months after the termination of the war, and shall commence from and after such publication, which shall not be colourable only, but shall be intended to satisfy the reasonable requirements of the public.

2. The provisions of Section 15 of the Copyright Act, 1911, as to the delivery of books to libraries, shall apply to works to which this Order relates upon their publication in the United Kingdom.

4. This Order shall apply to all His Majesty's Dominions, Colonies and Posses-

sions with the exception of those hereinafter named, that is to say:-

The Dominion of Canada;

The Commonwealth of Australia;

The Dominion of New Zealand; The Union of South Africa;

5. Nothing in this Order shall be construed as depriving any work of any rights which have been lawfully acquired under the provisions of the Copy- right Act, 1911, or any Order in Council thereunder.

6. This Order shall take effect as from the 2nd day of February, 1920, which

day is in this Order referred to as the commencement of this Order.

And the Lords Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury are to give the necessary orders accordingly.

No. 193.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 31st March, 1920, to enquire into the charge against Mr. CHARLES JAMES KIRKPATRICK, Second Engineer of the British Steamship Fausang, is published for general information.

FINDING.

      We find that Mr. CHARLES JAMES KIRKPATRICK the number of whose certificate of competency as Second Engineer is 4690 of Vancouver, British Colombia, when serving as Second Engineer on board the British S.S. Fausang, Official Number 105,800, of London, did absent himself from his ship at the moment of sailing in defiance of direct orders to the contrary from the Master of that ship, on the 12th March, 1920.

Taking into consideration the testimonials produced, and the fact that no official certificates of conduct and ability from the Royal Navy, in which he served for 18 years, are produced, we adjudge that his certificate of competency as Second Engineer be sus- pended for two (2) calendar months.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this Thirty-first day of March, 1920.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, APRIL 16, 1920.

   No. 219.-The following extract from the Board of Trade Journal dated the 19th February, 1920, is published for general information:-

TRADING WITH GERMANY.

    The information as to the conditions under which commercial and financial transac- tions are permissible with German nationals and with persons and firms carrying on business in Germany, published in December last in a Parliamentary Return, Cmd. 512, is rendered out of date by the ratification of the Treaty of Peace with Germany and the issue of an Order-in-Council fixing 10th January, 1920 (the date on which the Treaty came into force) as the legal date of the termination of the war with that country. --

             gas to emode es emotionfreen sanse et on plan maidme Trade with Germany is in general no longer subject to any restrictions other than those imposed on trade with other foreign countries.

Any goods may be exported to Germany without licence, except goods on Lists A and B of Prohibited Exports*, and any goods may be imported into the United Kingdom from Germany except goods on the importation of which from all countries restrictions have been or may be imposed.

The following considerations must, however, be borne in mind in transacting busi- ness with German nationals:-

(a) All property, rights, and interests within the British Empire belonging to German nationals at the date on which the Treaty of Peace came into force (namely, 10th January, 1920), unless acquired as the result of a transaction undertaken since the resumption of trade with Germany was authorised (i.e., since 12th July, 1919), are subject to charge under the Treaty of Peace Order, 1919, and no transaction of a 'commercial or financial nature is therefore permissible which involves the delivery, sale, or transfer of any such property, rights or interests.

(b) The settlement of all outstanding debts between British subjects resident within the United Kingdom, and German nationals resident in Germany, with the exception of debts arising out of transactions undertaken since 12th July, 1919, must be effected through the medium of the Clearing Office for Enemy Debts, and any transaction involving the settlement or transfer of such debts is prohibited.

Subject to such restrictions as may be imposed by the German authorities, indi- viduals and firms of British nationality are at liberty to invest money in German businesses and to establish firms or agencies in Germany.

The freedom of Germans to trade, to carry on business, and to acquire property in the United Kingdom is limited by the following special restrictions imposed on nationals of Germany, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Turkey:-

(a) For a period of three years from 23rd December, 1919, no national of the above-mentioned countries may enter the United Kingdom without a special licence or remain in this country for a longer period than three months, except as provided in Section 10 of the Aliens Restriction (Amendment) Act, 1919.

(b) For a period of three years from 23rd December, 1919, no national of the above-mentioned countries will be permitted to acquire any interest in land, in any concern carrying on a "key industry" (as presently to be defined by the Board of Trade), or in any company owning a ship registered in the United Kingdom. [Vide Section 11 Aliens Restriction (Amendment) Act, 1919.]

(e) For a period of five years after the termination of the war no business connected with certain non-ferrous metals and metallic ores may be carried on by, or under the influence or control of a national of the above-mentioned countries, except under licence of the Board of Trade. [Vide Non-Ferrous Metal Industry Act, 1918, and Non-Ferrous Metal Industry Rules, 1918.]

    * For the export to Germany of goods on Lists A and B export licences must be obtained from the Imports and Exports Licensing Section, Board of Trade, Great George Street, S.W. 1.

(d) For a period of five years after the termination of the war, and thereafter until Parliament may otherwise determine no banking business may be carried on for the benefit or under the control of a national of the above-mentioned countries. Vide Section 2, Trading with the Enemy Act, 1918, and Enemy Banking Business Rules, 1918.]

(e) No national of the above-mentioned countries may act as master, officer, or member of the crew of a British ship registered in the United Kingdom. [Vide Section 12, Aliens Restriction (Amendment) Act, 1919.]

   With the above reservations Germans are at liberty to acquire shares or interests in British firms or companies and to establish business houses or agencies in the United Kingdom, subject only to the same restrictions as aliens of any other nationality.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 7, 1920.

No. 270.

China Seas Storm Signal Code.

(Operative in Hongkong from the 1st June, 1920.)

General Explanation.

195

  1. The Signals are made by means of certain Symbols, each corresponding, for certain purposes, to a number:--

T +

!

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

  2. The Signals are hoisted at the yard-arms and masthead of the Storm Signal Mast on Blackheads Hill, and have the following general characteristics:-

+

Typhoon and Continental Depression Signals :

(a.) 4 symbols at one yard-arm showing the position of the centre.

(b.) 3 symbols at the other yard-arm showing the direction of motion and/or

certain characteristics (see Tables Nos. 1, 2, and 3).

(c.) 1 symbol at the masthead showing the time the warning was issued by

the Royal Observatory (see Table No. 4).

Gale Signals:

(d.)

symbol at one yard-arm showing the region threatened (see Table

No. 5).

(e.) 2 symbols at the other yard-arm showing the general direction of the

wind (see Table No. 1).

(f.) symbol at the masthead showing the time the warning was issued by

the Royal Observatory (see Table No. 4).

  The two upper symbols of group (a) indicate by their corresponding numbers the latitude, and the two lower symbols the longitude of the centre of a circle of specified size within which the centre of the typhoon or depression lies. The symbols for longitude give the units and tens only; thus, 32 indicates longitude 132.

  The two upper symbols of group (b) indicate the direction in which the typhoon is travelling, (see Table No. 1) or, alternately, certain conditions of the typhoon (see Table No. 2). The third and lowest symbol of group (b) indicates the radius of the circle whose centre is shown by the latitude and longitude. This symbol may also indicate degree of intensity. In the case of a continental depression it indicates that it is such, and the corresponding latitude and longitude is the centre of an indefinite area affected (see Table No. 3).

Caution.--It should be clearly understood that the position indicated by the latitude and longitude signalled does not purport to be the position of the centre of the typhoon. It indicates merely the centre of a circle of a specified radius within which the centre of the typhoon is believed to lie.

Table No. 1.--Direction Signals.

Two upper Symbols of hoist.

These indicate the direction in which a typhoon is travelling or the direction from which a gale may be expected.

   It is important that seamen should realise that the position of the centre of the typhoon as signalled is the position according to the data possessed by the Royal Obser- vatory at the time of the issue of the warning. That data may be as much as 12 hours old. Thus, if the time signal indicates that the warning was issued "This morning," it may be that the position corresponds to data concerning yesterday afternoon.

   If the signal "Deepening" is made, it indicates that there is reason to believe that the barometric gradient and, consequently, the intensity of the typhoon is increasing.

1

   If the signal "Exceptional velocity is made, it indicates that there is reason to believe that the rate of progression is 25 per cent. or more greater than the average rate.

   If the signal "Position uncertain" is made, it indicates that the data possessed is unreliable and that the position signalled is a mere probability.

   The several tracks which a typhoon may follow in the several months are very varied, and the velocity of progression is liable to be erratic. It is not safe to count on a typhoon maintaining a velocity indicated by previous positions of its centre. The velocity is liable to increase very suddenly. Seamen are recommended to study from available sources the tracks and average velocities for the month and locality concerned.

Seamen should realise that, whatever may be the probability of a certain velocity in a given case, there is always the possibility that it may be greatly exceeded. The safest guide is to make allowance for extreme velocity.

No. 276.

Hongkong Storm Signal Code. (Local.)

Signal No. 7 will be accompanied by three explosive bombs, tired at intervals of 10 seconds at the Water Po Station and repeated at the Harbour Office.

The signals will be lowered when it is considered that all danger is over.

      The Day Signals will be displayed on the Radio mast at the Royal Observatory, at the Harbour Office, H.M.S. Tamar, Green Island signal mast, the flagstaff on the premises of the Hongkong and Kowloon Wharf and Godown Company at Kowloon, the flagstaff on the premises of the Standard Oil Company at Lai-chi-kok, and the flagstaff near the Field Officer's Quarters at Lyemun.

The Night Signals will be displayed, at sunset, on the Radio mast at the Royal Observatory, on the tower of the Railway Station, on H.M.S. Tamar, and on the Harbour Office flagstaff. They will have the same signification as the day signals.

      Signal No. 7 will be accompanied by explosive bombs as above, in the event of the information conveyed by this signal being first published at night.

SUPPLEMENTARY

WARNINGS.

When local signals are displayed in the Harbour a CONE will be exhibited at the following stations :

Gap Rock Waglan

Sau Ki Wan

Sai Kung Sha Tau Kok

Tai Po

Stanley Aberdeen

to notify the fact to native craft and passing ocean vessels.

Further details can always be given to occan vessels, on demand, by signal from lighthouses.

      The object of the code is to give at least 24 hours warning of a gale (Force 8 by Beaufort Scale, or 40-45 m.p.h., mean velocity by Dines Anemometer) and also warnings of expected changes in the direction and force of the wind. Owing however to the uncertain movements of typhoons and to insufficient telegraphic observatious, it will occasionally happen that signals 2 to 5 may be displayed without a gale occurring at Hongkong, or even Gap Rock, but the reverse is not likely to happen, except in the case of typhoons forming in the vicinity and travelling rapidly towards Hongkong, or of a located typhoon increasing. its rate of progression abnormally.

      Signal No. 1 is intended as a warning to "Stand By" and watch for the next signal. When it is hoisted after a black sigual has been displayed it will mean that, on account of a change in the track of the typhoon, or for some other reason, a gale is no longer expected from the direction indicated by the last signal, and that another black signal may possibly be hoisted later.

No. 349.-It is hereby notified, under section 4 of the Crown Lands Resumption Ordinance, 1900, Ordinance No. 10 of 1900, that His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to nominate Mr. HENRY THOMAS JACKMAN to be a member of the Board of Arbitrators to determine the amount of compensation to be paid in respect of the resumption of the said Lots Nos. 16 R.P., 17, 6247, and 6249 R.P. in Survey District I.

No. 350.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 15th June, 1920, to enquire into the circumstances in connection with the stranding of the British Steamship Fausang, is published for general information.

FINDING.

We find that the British S.S. Fausang, of London (Official Number 105800), of which Captain F. G. GILL, (Certificate of Competency No. 040042 Dublin) was Master, left Hongay on May 24th with a full cargo of coal (3,021 tons) bound for Hongkong. That -owing to the light it was found necessary to anchor for the night in Hainan Bay on May 25th and wait for daylight to pass through the Narrows. That the ship weighed anchor at 5.35 a.m. on May 26th and proceeded on her voyage intending to pass through South Channel and that at 6.10 a.m. the ship struck on the foul ground situated North 20 degrees East from Black Beacon, Hainan Spit.

The Court is of opinion that the stranding of the ship was entirely due to the care- less navigation of the Master in electing to pass this Beacon at 2 cables distance which we consider to be dangerously close distance and also in taking no steps to check this distance, so that when the ship actually struck we find the Fausang was only 701 feet from the Beacon.

In view of this fact the Court orders the Master, Mr. F. G. GILL'S certificate to be suspended for twelve months but grant him a first mate's certificate during that time.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this Fifteenth day of June, 1920.

2.

In view of the shortage of Hospital accommodation in this Colony will the Government sane- tion the attendance of patients' own physician or surgeon desired, at the Government Civil Hospital and the Barker Road Hospital, and will the Government also arrange for an additional number of private rooms for this purpose both in the 1st and 2nd class wards? 2. What steps has the Government taken to provide Hospital accommodation for "maternity

3. Is it not a fact that the house called "Lyecmun" next the Victoria Hospital was purchased by the Government for the express purpose of turning it into a maternity annexe of the Victoria Hospital and if so why has it not been put to such use ?

Provided that this prohibition shall not apply to any alien who has acted as a master, chief officer, or chief engineer of a British ship, or as skipper or second hand of a British Fishing boat, at any time during the war, and is certified by the Admiralty to have per- formed good and faithful service in that capacity.

(2.) No alien shall be employed in any capacity on board a British ship registered in the United Kingdom at a rate of pay less than the standard rate of pay for the time being current on British ships for his rating:

Provided that, where the Board of Trade are satisfied that aliens of any particular race (other than former enemy aliens) are habitually employed afloat in any capacity, or in any climate, for which they are specially fitted, nothing in this section shall preju- dice the right of aliens of such race to be employed upon British ships at rates of pay which are not below those for the time being fixed as standard rates for British subjects of that race.

(3.) No alien shall be employed in any capacity on board a British ship registered in the United Kingdom unless he has produced to the officer before whom he is engaged satisfactory proof of his nationa- lity.

(4.) Any person who engages an alien for employment on a British ship in contravention of the provisions of this section shall be guilty of an offence under this Act.

   By His Excellency Sir REGINALD EDWARD STUBBS 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 the nineteenth section of the Macao Extradition Ordinance, 1881, it is enacted that in case the Governor in Council deems it expedient that the said Ordinance should be repealed it shall be lawful for the Governor by proclamation to declare that it is repealed:

And whereas I Sir REGINALD EDWARD STUBBS with the advice of the Executive Council of the Colony of Hongkong do deem it expedient that the said Ordinance should be repealed:

   Now therefore I Sir REGINALD EDWARD STUBBS Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George Governor and Commander-in-Chief of the Colony of Hongkong and its Dependencies and Vice-Admiral of the same do hereby by this proclamation declare that the Macao Extradition Ordinance, 1881, is repealed.

   Given under my hand and the Public Seal of the Colony at Victoria, Hongkong, this 27th day of August, 1920.

By Command,

A. G. M. FLETCHER, Colonial Secretary.

GOD SAVE THE KING.

NOTE. The Macao Extradition Ordinance, 1881, was evidently intended as a temporary measure pending the conclusion of the treaty between Great Britain and Portugual which was then under negotiation, and it seems probable that the unusual power of repeal given to the Governor in Council by section 19 of the Ordinance was intended to be used upon the conclusion of the treaty. This appears to have been overlooked when the treaty was concluded and brought into force in 1894. It is inconvenient to have a special set of rules for the single case of extradition to Macao, and the proce- dure of the Ordinance is also inferior in certain respects to the procedure of the general extradition law which will apply when the Ordinance is repealed. For example, there is no provision for the issue of any warrant of arrest before the receipt of a formal requisition. The Ordinance has there- fore been repealed.

No. 457.-As the 1920-1921 Session of the University of Hongkong will shortly be opened, the Government considers it advisable to publish a preliminary statement con- cerning the first report dated the 30th June, 1920, of the Commission which was recently appointed to enquire into the position and working of the University.

With regard to the University's present financial situation, the Commission found that at the close of the financial year ending on the 31st August, 1920, there would be a deficit for the year on Working Account of about $145,000, and an accrued overdraft at the bank of about $500,000 on Working and Capital Accounts combined, and an accrued deficit of about $70,000 on an endowinent Sinking Fund.

The Commission, among its various recommendations, strongly advises that the University should be carried on in all three present faculties of Medicine, Engineering, and Arts; that it should be carried on under conditions which make for efficiency and success; that if it is to reach and keep a position worthy of the Colony and the British Empire, and if it is to take its proper part in the developments now in progress in China, it must maintain a standard fully as high as, or higher than, in the past, and must expand soon and widely; that, in particular, there is urgent need of increased hospital facilities in the Medical department, and better workshops in the Engineering department, and certain improvements recommended in the Educational and Commercial courses; that a Vice-Chancellor ought to be appointed as soon as possible; and that the institution should at once be placed on a business footing.

   With these views His Excellency the Governor in Council and the Unofficial Mem- bers of the Legislative Council are in accord, and the Government is in communication with the Secretary of State for the Colonies regarding the necessary financial measures.

   No. 468. With reference to Government Notification No. 457 of the 3rd Septem- ber, 1920, concerning the preliminary report of the University Commission, the Govern- ment is now in a position to announce the intended measures for dealing with the financial situation already published.

   The Commission recommends that the Government should assume financial respon- sibility to an extent sufficient to carry on the work of the University efficiently; and proposes that the Government should contribute not less than $1,000,000 to the Endow- ment Fund, as well as largely increasing its present yearly grant of $20,000. The Commission is of opinion that reorganisation is required to secure the proper manage- ment and effective control of the University's affairs; and particularly that, as concerns money matters, a strong Finance Committee should be appointed, consisting of (say) the Colonial Treasurer, the Treasurer of the University, the Chief Manager of the Hongkong. and Shanghai Bank, and a representative of the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce, sitting with the Vice-Chancellor. Such matters as curriculum must of course be dealt with by the Vice-Chancellor and the academic machinery of the University.

The Government agrees with these recommendations.

   Subject accordingly to the approval of the Legislative Council, it has been decided that the Government shall meet the existing indebtedness of about $500,000 in respect of the bank overdraft, and about $70,000 in respect of the deficit on Sinking Fund; that it shall provide the proposed sum of $1,000,000 for the Endowment Fund, instead of the smaller amount of $250,000 which was before provisionally promised; and that it shall increase its yearly grant: with the intention that the University shall not only be freed from all present debts and have its past endowment restored intact, but shall also be assured of an adequate income for the future. The Government will consequently require a power of final control over expenditure; and, at least during the period of reorganisation, will be compelled to exercise a certain amount of general supervision.

   It is the hope and expectation of the Government, in thus guaranteeing the main- tenance of the University, that it will encourage contributions from other sources, especially for further expansions now unprovided for. And the Commission points out that one of the most useful ways in which benefactors can help is by the gift of special endowments for professorships; only two of which have hitherto been so supported, the Taikoo Chair of Engineering and the Ho Tung Chair of Surgery. These endowments are urgently needed to enable the University to fulfil completely the functions which it is its purpose to perform.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 10, 1920. 313

   2. The last occasion on which the Oversea Defence Committee offered any remarks on the Hongkong Local Forces was in October, 1913, when the Report on the Hongkong Volunteer Corps for 1912-13 was before them. Since that date the war has intervened, and in September, 1917, the local forces of the Colony were reorganised as the Hongkong Defence Corps under the terms of the Military Service Ordinance, 1917. The total strength of the units comprising the new Corps was 826 of all ranks on the 31st March, 1919, and of this number 729 are classed as efficient in the Reports for the year now under review.

That such a high percentage of efficients is recorded cannot but be a matter for the congratulation of all concerned, especially in view of the fact that the total strength of the force was on the 31st March, 1919, almost three times that of the Volunteer Force on the corresponding date in 1913.

3. The Committee cannot allow the opportunity to pass without calling attention to the satisfaction with which they note not only this increase in numbers and efficiency, but also the valuable services which have been performed by the Local Forces of the Colony during the period which has elapsed since the issue of their Remarks, No. 638 R.

4. Again, they hope that now the war is over, and that there is not the same inducement for men to interest themselves in military service, the efficiency of the Corps will not be allowed to deteriorate, and that every possible effort will be made to keep up the spirit of keenness shown by all ranks during the emergency period, and to maintain an efficient force at the maximum strength practicable.

5. In this connection they would point out that, in view of the increased obligations of the Imperial Government due to the war, even greater reliance than in the past will in the future have to be placed on Colonies to maintain their local forces at the maximum strengths practicable so as to make it possible to reduce to a minimum the Imperial expenditure on garrisons and warships maintained oversea. The Committee look with confidence, therefore, to the Hongkong Defence Corps to maintain so far as practicable in the future the high standard of efficiency which it has reached during the war.

7. It is very satisfactory to observe the high standard in musketry which has been reached during the year.

APPENDIX.

Officer Administering the Government to Secretary of State.

Hongkong, June 2, 1919.

With reference to Sir Henry May's confidential despatch of the 14th August, 1918, I have the honour to transmit a copy of a letter from the General Officer Commanding, submitting the Annual Report on the Hongkong Defence Corps for the past year, and a copy of my reply.

2. As a private in the Corps myself I can endorse, from personal experience, the high opinion formed by Major-General Ventris of Major Morgan's work as Administrative Commandant. The system under which a senior officer of the garrison is appointed to command the Defence Corps is a good one, but it is necessary to exercise great care in the selection of such an officer.

I have, &c.,

(No. C.R. 8008 "G.")

Sir,

Hongkong, May 24, 1919.

I have the honour to submit for your Excellency's information the Annual Report on the Defence Corps for the past year, together with brief reports by the Officer Commanding, Royal Artillery, on the Artillery Company, and by the Chief Engineer on the Engineer Company.

   2. All three arms are in an efficient condition. The Artillery frequently, and the Engineers continuously, have performed invaluable work on the Examination Service from the outbreak of war until the Armistice. The Infantry show a remarkable improvement in musketry due to the exertions of Major Morgan, the Commandant.

3. Your Excellency will no doubt regret with me that the move of the 18th Infantry up north deprived us of Major Morgan's valuable services. His undoubted success as a Commandant encourages me to recommend a continuance of the system under which he was appointed, if a suitable successor can be found in the garrison to replace him.

4. I beg to endorse Major Morgan's commendation of Captain Stewart, the Adjutant.

5. I was present at most of the Artillery practices, and many of their drills during the year. I have visited the Searchlights occasionally by night, and I was present at the three days Field Firing Practices of the Infantry which took the place of Camp, so I have a personal knowledge of the state of efficiency of all three arms.

I have, &c.,

(Signed)

F. VENTRIS,

Major-General Commanding the China Command.

Hongkong, May 31, 1919.

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your Excellency's letter No. C.R. 8008 "G" of the 24th May submitting the Annual Report on the Defence Corps for the past year,

   I share your Excellency's regret at the loss of Major Morgan's services, as it is undoubtedly due n a large measure to his fine example of zeal and energy that the Corps has attained such a high level of efficiency especially in musketry. I am also in favour of a continuance of the system under which Major Morgan was appointed.

I have read the commendation of Captain Stewart's work as Adjutant with much pleasure.

I could not possibly have had a more loyal or hard working lot of Officers, and the high state of efficiency is very largely due to their efforts.

  The Engineer Company continued to run the defence electric lights at Belchers and Lyemun until the Armistice.

  No opportunity for any other kind of engineer training occurred, owing to the necessity for relaxing the effort called for from members of this unit, and also to the absence of any instructors.

HEREAS on the 20th day of January, 1914, an International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, and for purposes incidental thereto, was duly entered into by His Majesty and the other Signatory Powers more especially referred to and set out in the said Convention :

    And whereas a Statute 4 & 5 Geo. 5, c. 50, intituled "an Act to make such amend- ments of the Law relating to Merchant Shipping as are necessary or expedient to give effect to an International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea" (being the Convention above referred to) was passed on the 10th day of August, 1914, the short title of which is "The Merchant Shipping (Convention) Act, 1914":

And whereas by Section 29, Sub-section 5, of the said Act it was provided as follows:-

66

This Act shall come into operation on the 1st day of July, 1915:

"Provided that His Majesty may, by Order in Council, from time to time post- pone the coming into operation of this Act for such period, not exceeding on any occasion of postponement one year, as may be specified in the Order" ;

And whereas by divers Orders in Council the coming into operation of the said Act has been from time to time postponed, and now stands postponed, by virtue of an Order in Council of the 9th day of December, 1919, until the 1st day of July, 1920 :

And whereas His Majesty deems it expedient that the provisions of the said Act should be further postponed:

Now, therefore, His Majesty, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, in pur- suance of the powers vested in Him by the above-recited provision, and of all other powers Him thereunto enabling, doth order, and it is hereby ordered, that the provisions of the Merchant Shipping (Convention) Act, 1914, shall be postponed from coming into operation until the 1st day of January, 1921.

In view of the fact that a strong local Commission, appointed by the Officer Administering the Gorernment, reported in or about March, 1919, their findings regarding the emoluments of the public service of the Colony, and having regard to the fact that such emoluments are defrayed out of local revenue and not out of Imperial Funds, will the Government lay on the table the following documents, riz., the Report of the Commissioners; the despatches from the Secretary of State dealing with such report ?

2. Will the Government, having regard to the desire of the taxpayers that the public servants should be remunerated on a fair and reasonable basis only, and in view of the undoubted dissatisfaction still existing amongst several classes of such serrants as a result of the Secretary of State's decision, lay on the table a statement showing in what respect the recommendations of the Commission differ from the directions of the Secretary of State ? 3. Will the Government state on broad lines what financial assistance they are prepared to make to assist applicants desiring to build houses for their own occupation and also how many of such applications have been received to date, specifying how many of such hare been accepted or refused or with which they are still in treaty ?

1. How many patients resident in Kowloon hare been inmates of the Government and other hospitals in Victoria during 1919 and what steps, if any, have been taken to further a scheme for a general and maternity hospital at Koncloon?

Protection of Life and Property in the Harbour during Typhoon Weather.

1. When there are immediate prospects of the weather conditions becoming

                                                 so bad as to place the Native Craft in the Harbour in danger of being unable to make shelter on their own account, a Red Ensign will be hoisted at the Harbour Office indicating that two Naval Tugs will be available to assist to tow such craft to shelter.

2. These Naval Tugs will fly the Red Ensign at the masthead and will proceed down to the Central and Southern Fairways to the limit of the shipping, and all mercantile or private craft which desire to avail themselves of a tow to shelter should be ready with their ropes to be taken in tow as the Tugs return.

3. All craft will be towed towards Yaumati Refuge,

4. If the wind is blowing from the Eastward, assistance to the shipping at the Western end of the Harbour will be rendered first.

5. Native Craft are not to depend on these Tugs entirely but should endeavour to make shelter on their own account, as early as possible.

6. The Naval Tugs will be used only in emergency, during the hours of daylight, and on no account will they be used for this work after dark.

   7. No responsibility for damage done during towage will be taken by the Govern- ment or by the Naval Authorities.

S. Towing charges will be made in accordance with the following scale :----

1.

While Red Signals are hoisted. 1/20 of Annual Licence Fee.

2.

While Black Signals

are hoisted. 1 of Annual Licence Fee.

3.

While Black Cross

Such legislation will be intro- duced shortly.

AT THE COURT AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE,

THE 13TH DAY of August, 1920.

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

WHEREAS at Neuilly-sur-Seine on the twenty-seventh day of November, nineteen

     hundred and nineteen, a Treaty of Peace (hereinafter referred to as "the Treaty") was signed on behalf of His Majesty:

And whereas by the Treaties of Peace (Austria and Bulgaria) Act, 1920, it was provided that His Majesty might make such appointments, establish such offices, make Such Orders in Council and do such things as appeared to Him to be necessary for carrying out the Treaty, and for giving effect to any of the provisions of the Treaty, and that any Order in Council made under that Act might provide for the imposition by summary process or otherwise of penalties in respect of breaches of the provisions thereof:

And whereas the Treaty contained the provisions set out in the Schedule to this Order, and it is expedient that for giving effect thereto the provisions hereinafter contained should have effect:

   And whereas by Treaty, grant, usage, sufferance or other lawful means His Majesty has power and jurisdiction in British Protectorates, and is pleased by virtue and in exercise of the powers vested in Him by the Foreign Jurisdiction Act, 1890, or otherwise to extend the provisions of this Order to such Protectorates :

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

   1. The provisions of the Treaty set out in the Schedule to this Order shall have full force and effect as law, and for the purpose of carrying out those provisions the following provisions shall have effect :-

(i) All property, rights and interests within His Majesty's Dominions or Protec- torates belonging to Bulgarian nationals at the date when the Treaty came into force (not being property, rights or interests acquired under any general licence issued by or on behalf of His Majesty), and the net proceeds of their sale, liquidation or other dealings therewith, are hereby charged-

(a) in the first place, with payment of the amounts due in respect of claims by British nationals (other than British nationals ordinarily resident in the self-governing Dominions, India and Egypt) with regard to their property, rights and interests (including companies and associations in which they are interested) in Bulgarian terri- tory, or debts owing to them by Bulgarian nationals, and with payment of
