LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

No. 41.-The Honourable Mr. H. E. POLLOCK, K.C., has given notice of the following questions:--

1. Will the Government state what is the reason for the delay in commen- cing work on the erection of Government houses and flats on the "Homestead" site at the Peak?

2. What steps does the Government propose to take with a view to putting up the Old Post Office site for sale by auction? What is the objection to such site being put up in four or five lots in order to meet the requirements of would-be purchasers?

3. Referring to the recent statement of the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies in the House of Commons (in answer to Colonel John Ward, M.P.) to the effect that the Secretary of State had suggested to H.E. the Governor of Hongkong the formation of a strong local Chinese Committee to look after adopted children and servant girls, will the Colonial Secretary inform the Council what steps the local Government are taking in the matter?

to which the following are the replies:-

1. The site came into the possession of the Government on the 1st April, 1920, and after some discussion it was decided in July to place the whole work of development in the hands of a private firm of architects. Sketch plans were submitted early in September and after amendment were finally approved on the 3rd December. Detailed plans and drawings are in course of preparation and a contract for the erection of the houses will be let shortly. There has been no avoidable delay in the matter having regard to the importance of developing this valuable site to the best advantage.

2. It will probably be decided to put up the land for auction in several lots. The question of the best method of sub-dividing the whole area is at present receiving consideration. At a later stage the Members of the Public Works Committee of this Council will be asked to give their opinion on the proposed laying out.

3. The Government is taking action on the lines suggested by the Secretary of State, but it would be premature to publish any details at present.

ANGLO-GERMAN MIXED ARBITRAL TRIBUNAĻ.

The following announcement is made by the Board of Trade :----

The Mixed Arbitral Tribunal to be established between the United Kingdom on the one hand and Germany on the other hand under Article 304 of the Treaty of Versailles has been constituted and is about to begin work in London. The President of the Tribunal is Professor Eugène Borel, a Swiss jurist and Professor of Public and Inter- national Law in the University of Geneva. The British and German members are respectively Mr. R. E. L. Vaughan Williams, K.C., of Lincoln's Inn, and Dr. jur. Adolph Nicolaus Zacharias, Senatspräsident of the Hanseatic Oberlandesgericht.

A great part of the work of the Tribunal is to decide as to debts under Article 296 of the Treaty where a difference has arisen between an enemy debtor and an enemy creditor or between the British and German clearing offices. Under Article 297 the Tribunal can determine compensation to be borne by Germany in respect of damage or injury inflicted on the property, rights or interests of British Nationals in German territory as they existed on August 1, 1914, by the exceptional war measures or measures of transfer mentioned in the Annex to that Article. The other matters within the jurisdiction of the Tribunal are set out in Articles 299, 300, 302, 304, 305 and 310 of the Treaty.

The Procedure before the Tribunal is to some extent regulated by Sections III. to VII. of Part X. of the Treaty, but the Tribunal has settled further and more detailed rules dealing with the manner in which claims must be submitted. Printed copies of these Rules of Procedure, which have been issued in the Series of Statutory Rules and Orders (No. 2062), may be purchased, price threepence; through any bookseller, or may be obtained on application to the Secretariat of the Tribunal. They should be read in conjunction with the provisions of the Treaty of Peace Order, 1919 (Statutory Rules and Orders, 1919, No. 1517, published by H. M. Stationery Office. Price 2d.)

The British Government has provided a Court for the meetings of the Tribunal, and an office for the Secretariat at 21, St. James's Square, London, S. W. 1. Mr. Harold Russell, Barrister-at-Law, has been appointed by the Foreign Office to act as British Secretary and the German Government is also appointing a Secretary, the two to act together as joint Secretaries of the Tribunal.

The Secretariat will forward such notice to the Claimant, who shall within thirty days from the receipt thereof state whether he consents to and will effect such joinder, in which case all proceedings shall be stayed until it is effected, or whether he refuses or is unable to effect such joinder, stating his reasons for such refusal or inability.

(b) If the Claimant consents to and is willing to effect such joinder, the written. consent of the person to be joined shall be sent to the Tribunal within twenty-one days, and the Secretariat shall thereupon amend the memorial by adding the names of such person as Claimant, and notice of such joinder will be sent to the Respondent and the Government Agent of the Claimant and Respondent, and all further proceedings shall be continued as if such joinder had been made from the commencement.

(c) If the Claimant fails to answer the notice as provided by Rule 17 (a) or refuses or states that he is unable to effect such joinder or if the written consent is not sent as provided by Rule 17 (b), notice thereof shall be given by the Secretariat to the Respon- dent, who may within ten days apply to the Tribunal to stay all proceedings until such joinder be effected. The Secretariat shall give notice of such application to the Claimant, and such application shall be heard by the Tribunal on a date to be fixed by the Tribunal not less than fourteen days after notice of such application has been sent to the Claimant.

52

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 18, 1921.

18. If the Tribunal is satisfied that any person refuses to join as Claimant, although he ought to join, the Tribunal may allow the case to proceed without such joinder, but in that case the Tribunal may refuse to entertain any claim in the future by such person with respect to the subject-matter of the claim in the presenting of which he ought to have joined.

19. If any person proceeds against some only of the persons jointly liable to him on the same claim and the Tribunal decides the case whether in favour of or against the Claimant, the Tribunal may refuse to entertain any claim in the future by such person against the other person or persons so jointly liable.

20.-(a) If a Respondent contends that some other person who is not joined as Respon- dent is jointly liable with him to answer the claim, he may within twenty days after the receipt of the memorial send a notice to the Secretariat that he requires such person to be joined as Respondent, giving his name and address, and stating the reasons why he requires him to be joined; and with such notice shall send a sufficient number of copies to enable the ecretariat to send one to the Claimant and to each of the persons whom the Respondent requires to be joined. The Secretariat will thereupon send such notice to the Claimant and to each of the persons named by the Respondent, and the Claimant and each of the said persons shall reply within ten days whether they consent to such joinder or not. In the event of the Claimant and each of such persons consenting to the-- joinder, the Secretariat will amend the memorial by adding them as parties, and the Claimant shall cause copies, of the memorial to be served on each of such persons, and all future proceedings shall be continued as if such joinder had been made from the

commencement.

(b) If either the Claimant or any of such persons do not consent to the joinder within ten days, the Secretariat shall notify the Respondent accordingly, and the Res- pondent may within ten days apply to the Tribunal to stay all proceedings until such joinder be effected. The Secretariat shall give notice of such application to the Claimant and such other person or persons, and such application shall be heard by the Tribunal on a date to be fixed by the Tribunal not less than fourteen days after notice of such application has been sent to the Claimant and such person or persons as aforesaid.

    21.-(a) If any person not being a party claims to have a legitimate interest in prosecuting or resisting the claim, he may apply to the Tribunal to be joined as claimant or respondent as the case may be, or to be allowed to intervene in the case in such manner as the Tribunal may direct.

    (b) If a Respondent contends that he is entitled to some right over against some other person in reference to the claim brought against him, he may give such person notice of his claim against him and at the same time serve him with a copy of the memorial. Such person may thereupon apply to the Tribunal to be joined as Respon- dent or to be allowed to intervene in the case in such manner as the Tribunal direct. If such person does not intervene and the Tribunal should be of opinion at the hearing that there are grounds for coming to the conclusion that the Respondent may succeed in his claim against such person, the Tribunal may, if it decides in favour of the Claimant, stay execution in order to enable the Respondent to prosecute his claim against such person upon such terms as to security and otherwise as the Tribunal may think just.

SPECIAL RULES FOR PARTICULAR CASES.

    22. In addition to the above general rules, the following rules shall be observed in the under-mentioned cases :--

(1) Cases under Article 305.

    The person alleging that he is prejudiced by the decision shall be the Claimant and the other party to the cause or proceeding in which the decision was given or, if there be no such party, the Government shall be Respondent. The claim shall be accompanied by a copy of the decision and shall state in what respect the decision is impugned, with which Section or Sections of the Treaty it is alleged to be inconsistent and in what respect and what relief is claimed. The Claimant may also accompany his claim by copies of any essential written proceedings of the case in which the decision was given, authenti- cated in the manner prescribed by the law of the country to which the Court belongs. The Tribunal may of its own motion require the record of the Court to be transmitted to the Tribunal and it shall then be open to the inspection of the parties and their agents.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 18, 1921.

(2) Appeals under Article 296, Annex, paragraph 20.

53

The Appellant shall be Claimant, and the party in whose favour the decision was given and the two clearing offices shall be Respondents. The claim shall state the grounds. of the appeal and shall be accompanied by a copy of the decision appealed against and of all documents in the possession of the Claimant relevant to the case, and by a reasoned argument by the Claimant in support of his appeal. Together with the claim and documents, three copies thereof shall be supplied to the Tribunal, and the Claimant shall serve copies thereof on the opposite party and the Agents of the two clearing offices.

The Agent of the clearing office of which the Respondent is a national shall within thirty days of receipt of the claim supply to the Tribunal four copies of all documents. relating to the case which are in his possession or power, unless the Claimant has already supplied them with his claim, and a statement of any facts found by the clearing offices. In addition, the Respondent or the clearing offices may supply a reasoned argument in writing in support of the decision of the two clearing offices.

Any of the parties (including the Agents of the clearing offices) may apply to the Tribunal to hear arguments before it, but in the absence of such application the Tribunal shall be at liberty to determine the case on the written proceedings without further argument, or to notify to the parties if it desires to hear an argument.

--The Secretariat on receipt of the claim shall inform the Claimant what is the amount of deposit to be paid or security to be given, and such deposit shall be paid or security given within ten days, and in default the claim may be dismissed.

(3) Cases under Article 296, Annex, paragraph 16.

   Where cases are referred to the Tribunal under the above provision, the procedure laid down elsewhere in these rules shall not apply. The parties shall present a case jointly to the Tribunal, or each may present a case separately. In either event the contentions of the parties shall be set out in the case or cases, which shall be accompanied by all relevant documents. Six true copies of the case or cases and documents shall be prepared and lodged with the Secretariat. The matter will be determined by the Tribunal as laid down by Article 296, Annex, paragraph 18. The limitations of time. imposed by these rules shall not apply to such cases; but 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, and the parties to the dispute do not desire to present a case jointly, either clearing offices may, within ten days after given notice to the other clearing office of such intention, refer the case to the Tribunal under the conditions provided for by Article 296, Annex, paragraph 16. The enemy creditor or the enemy debtor may similarly, after giving twenty days' notice to the two clearing offices, refer the case to the Tribunal, unless the case shall have been referred to the Tribunal meanwhile by the clearing offices or either of them. The case shall proceed as if it had been referred to the Tribunal by the clearing offices.

CLOSE OF WRITTEN PROceedings.

   23. The Secretariat will inform the respective Government Agents and parties when the written proceedings are closed.

   24.-(a) Within twenty days after the date of the notice that the written proceedings are closed, the parties shall send to the Secretariat a statement of the witnesses, if any, whose testimony they desire, giving in each instance the name, nationality, occupation and address of such witness, and stating whether the party desires that the testimony of such witness shall be given at the hearing of the case or whether it is desired that the evidence shall be taken upon commission, and shall at the same time furnish all parties. and the Government Agents with a copy. The Tribunal will thereupon determine whether the evidence shall be taken on commission or will make such other order as seems fit. The Tribunal will before making an order hear any party or Government Agent who may desire to be heard on the matter on his forthwith applying to be heard, and will fix a date for all parties to be heard if they desire.

   (b). Where the Tribunal orders that the witness shall be heard at the hearing, the Government agents shall be responsible for summoning the witness in accordance with the method applicable in each case unless the Tribunal otherwise directs. Travelling expenses and subsistence money must be supplied to the witness at the expense of the party at whose instance he is summoned. The amount of the same will be fixed by the

54 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 18, 1921.

Tribunal, and must be paid in advance to the Secretariat. If the subsistence money so paid should prove insufficient, the party at whose instance the witness was summoned must pay any further amount necessary, otherwise the witness will be allowed by the Tribunal to depart.

(c) Where the Tribunal directs that evidence shall be taken on commission the evidence shall be returnable to the Tribunal and copies shall be supplied by the Secre- tariat to any party or either Government Agent or any other person interested, and in the opinion of the Tribunal entitled to the same, on application and payment.

(d) Where it is desired that books, documents or other objects in the possession or power of any person should be produced for the use of the Tribunal, application may at any time after the close of the written proceedings be made to the Tribunal to obtain their production. The Tribunal will thereupon, if it thinks fit, endeavour to obtain possession of such books, documents or other objects by direct request addressed to such person, and, if such request is not complied with, will take such other steps as may be requisite and desirable to ensure production. Books, documents or other objects so coming into the custody of the Tribunal shall, if the Tribunal thinks fit, be open to inspection by such persons and at such times as the Tribunal shall direct.

1

25. Should a party or either of the Government Agents desire to inspect any books or documents in the possession, power or control of any party or of either Government Agent, he shall make application to that party or Agent to produce such books or docu- ments for inspection; and if such production is refused, application therefor may be made to the Tribunal upon ten days' notice being given to that party or Agent, and the Tribunal may make such order thereon as it thinks fit.

26. The Tribunal may of its own motion at any stage of the proceedings require evidence on any point.

27. The Tribunal may of its own motion at any stage of the proceedings require any party or either Government Agent to produce any book or document before it, or to allow any person designated by the Tribunal to examine and take extracts from any book or document in the possession of such party or Agent.

28. If in cases other than those under Article 296 any party or either of the Government Agents desires to submit a reasoned argument in writing, he may do so at any time after the written proceedings are closed, and not less than ten days before the date fixed for the hearing of the case, but such argument in writing shall be based only on facts alleged in the memorial, response, reply or rejoinder.

The submission of such written argument shall not preclude the parties or Agents submitting it from also adducing oral argument. The Tribunal reserves the right, if it shall think fit, to require in addition oral argument in cases where only written argument has been submitted.

29. The President will on the conclusion of all preliminary matters fix the date and the place of hearing, and the Secretariat will inform the respective Government Agents and parties of his decision.

30. The hearing shall be in public, and the parties shall either by themselves or by counsel or other recognised advocate present their cases. In cases connected with patents the parties may by leave of the Tribunal be represented by patent agents and Patentanwälte. Unless otherwise ordered, the Claimant shall begin and have the right of reply.

31.-(a) The parties shall have the right themselves to give evidence, and shall, if required by the Tribunal, do so. Each party may call such witnesses as he pleases before the Tribunal and may question them by himself or his counsel or admitted representative. Each party shall have the right to question any witness called by the other party (including the opposite party himself) whether before the Tribunal itself or elsewhere, by himself or by counsel or other admitted representative.

If the party who does not call the witness questions him, the party who has called him may thereupon put further questions to the witness on matters arising out of the questions put to the witness by the other party. Unless the Tribunal shall otherwise order, no further questions shall be put to the witness by or on behalf of the parties. The Tribunal, however, will at any stage put any questions that it may think fit:

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 18, 1921. 55

   Provided always that a party to a case shall not be summoned or compelled to give evidence unless the Tribunal shall have given leave for such witness to be summoned or to give evidence or unless the Tribunal shall have required of its own motion that such party shall attend and give evidence.

(b) No oath shall be required from or administered to any witness before the Tribunal or on any Commission ordered by the Tribunal, unless the Tribunal otherwise directs.

   32. The Tribunal may at any stage of the proceedings obtain a report from any person on any particular point, such person to be agreed upon by the parties or in default of agreement to be appointed by the Tribunal. The Tribunal may view any premises, locality or object if it deem such a view necessary.

   33. If any party fail to appear, the case may be proceeded with in his absence, but the Agent of the Government of such party may intervene and himself take up the case, and the Tribunal may on the application of such Agent or on its own motion adjourn

the case.

   34. It shall be permissible for either Government to conduct the case of its national through its Agent, and such Agent may appear either in person or by counsel or other recognised advocate. Either Agent may also appear independently of the parties by himself or by counsel or other recognised advocate, and may intervene in the proceed- ings in such manner and at such time as the Tribunal may direct.

   35.-(a) If the Government Agent of the Respondent after making all reasonable efforts shall be unable to cause the memorial to be served upon the Respondent as provided by Rule 7 at the expiration of 21 days from the receipt of the memorial by such Agent, he shall forthwith report such failure to the Secretariat, giving the reasons for such failure and stating the steps he has taken to effect service, and the Secretariat shall inform the Claimant that the Respondent has not been served.

(b) On the application of the Claimant, the Tribunal may thereupon, if it thinks fit, allow the claim to be proceeded with or may make such other order in the matter as it thinks fit. The Government Agent of the Respondent shall be entitled to intervene on such application being made, and the Claimant shall give ten days' notice to such Agent of such application.

   36. If at any stage of the proceedings a party requires to prove any specific fact it. shall be open to the party to give a notice to the other party to admit or dispute such fact. If the party to whom notice is so given disputes the fact, and such fact is sub- sequently established, the Tribunal may in its discretion order the party who had disputed such fact to pay the costs of proof and any other costs occasioned thereby, whatever may be the result of the case, provided always that any such admission shall only be binding upon the parties.

   37. Where a claim is made against either Government, and such claim is admitted by the Government in question, it shall be competent to the parties to agree upon a form of decision setting out with sufficient detail the claim which is admitted and the

                                               payment and restitution or other remedy or relief agreed upon, and to submit the same to the Tribunal, who, if it thinks fit, and if the Government Agent of the national claiming has not objected, will register the same as a decision, and the same shall, when registered, be deemed for all purposes to be a decision of the Tribunal: Provided that the Tribuna will not register any such decision unless the Government prove that he has submitted a true copy of the same to his Government Agent at least ten days previously. The same procedure with any necessary modification may be adopted where the claim is made against a national of either Government, provided that in such a case the Agent of neither Government has objected, and it is proved to the satisfaction of the Tribuna. that the respective Government Agents have had true copies of the form of decision submitted to them at least ten days previously.

38. If in any case the parties agree upon the facts and desire the determination of the Tribunal on those facts, they shall submit an agreed statement of facts to the Tribunal, and it shall be competent to the Tribunal, with or without argument, accord- ing to the desire of the parties, to determine the questions at issue, provided that the Tribunal may in any case require arguments to be presented to them :

56

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 18, 1921.

Provided also that in all cases the assent of the Government Agents, in writing, to the correctness of the facts as stated shall be obtained, except where the claim is against a Government.

DECISION.

  39. The decision of the Tribunal will in all cases be drawn up in writing and registered, and copies thereof will be sent by the Secretariat to the parties and Govern- ment Agents. The decision will also deal with costs and expenses.

  40. The Tribunal reserves to itself the power to correct an error in any decision or other order arising from a slip or accidental omission, or to explain any ambiguity or other doubtful expression appearing in the decision. It shall be open to the parties or to the Government Agents to give notice of application to the Tribunal for any such correction or for any such explanation within thirty days of the publication of the decision. No such application will be heard after the expiration of that period.

  41. The Tribunal reserves the right to stay execution on its decisions in any case where it appears proper to do so.

  42. (a) The Tribunal may require to be satisfied that all notices and communica- tions prescribed by these Rules have been duly received. The production of a receipt from the postal authority of the posting of registered postal packet shall be conclusive evidence of the receipt of a notice or communication by the person to whom it is addressed until the contrary is proved. In cases in which delivery by registered post is not practicable, heavy books and documents may be sent by ordinary post and unregis- tered or by public carrier, and, on proof of such posting or delivery to such carrier, the books or documents shall be deemed to have been received by the person to whom they were addressed, unless and until the contrary is proved.

  (b) All communications to the parties shall be delivered at or sent to the address and to the person named by them as provided by Rule 3 (h).

  (c) If service or delivery as above provided should prove impracticable, the Tribunal will, upon application, give such directions as it may think fit, or may dispense with

services.

  43. In cases where any person is not residing in Europe, the additional time taken for any postal communications to reach or to arrive from the country in which such person is residing shall not be taken as included in the time prescribed by these rules; and further time may be granted on the application of any party where, owing to difficulties of communication or other good cause, such extension appears desirable.

  Party shall include any person who has intervened in or has been allowed to take part in the case.

  44. The proper expenses of witnesses will be allowed, and may be advanced by the Tribunal if called in pursuance of its order.

  45. The Tribunal will permit amendments of written proceedings, extensions of time, and grant other dispensations from these rules in all such cases as may be neces- sary in the interests of justice and equity, and the Tribunal reserves power from time to time to alter, abrogate or add to these rules as experience may require.

46. These rules are supplemental to the rules of procedure relating to the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal laid down in Sections III to VII of Part X of the Treaty, and must be read in conjunction with such rules of procedure.

JURORS LIST FOR 1921. The Council went into Committee to consider the Jurors List for 1921 in camera.

NOTICE OF QUESTIONS.-Mr. HOLYOAK gave notice that he will ask the following questions at the next meeting of the Council:-

1. Will the Government state when they hope to open the separate Maternity Ward of the

Barker Road Hospital?

2. Have the recommendations of the Coroner's jury on the

Tai O tragedy been carried

out as regards two European Policemen being stationed at out-stations?

3. Will the Government, in view of the recent tragedy at West Point, wherein several per- sons lost their lives and many were injured, take steps at once to prohibit the sale of all so- called "Bombs" in this Colony, and further to enforce existing legislation against the throwing of crackers, stones or other missiles from verandahs of houses and buildings into the roadway?

4. In view of the general and considerable increase in motor traffic in this Colony, and the probability that it will still further increase ere long, will the Government appoint a small Committee to enquire into and revise traffic conditions and regulations?

5. In view of the fact that the Chamber of Commerce has recently received many complaints concerning the efficiency of the Fire Brigade service, more particularly afloat, and that there is a general feeling that it is not properly equipped for dealing with a serious harbour conflagration, will the Government at once appoint a Commission or Committee of enquiry into the year and administration of the Fire Brigade?

Mr. HOLYOAK withdrew question No. 5 on His Excellency the Governor addressing the Council on the subject.

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

Ground being handed over to the Government at an early date?

2. For the convenience of those who desire to build houses for their own occupation, will the Government state the terms and conditions upon which it is prepared to grant loans for the building of such houses?

3. Will the Government give a list of the various houses and flats which are being built with loans advanced by the Government and the dates of such respective loans and the estimated respective dates of completion of such houses and flats?

4. Will the Government consider the advisability of a Mental Ward for the care of the. Insane being established in connection with the proposed New Hospital at Kowloon, so that those who are mentally afflicted may not be confined in the cramped and depressing quarters which are comprised in the present Lunatic Asylum?

5. What progress is being made by the Economic Resources Commission and how soon may

some report from that Commission be expected ? ·

6. Will the Government appoint a small Committee of experts for the purpose of considering the feasibility of extending the system of Water Closets in this Colony by the pumping up of sea-water from the Harbour and by the provision of a kind of pipe which will not be corroded by sea-water?

7. Will the Government introduce a Bill to amend section 26A of the Offences against the Person Ordinance, 1865, (which was introduced by Ordinance 9 of 1913) by inserting the words "medical aid" after "clothing" in the clause defining neglect of children and young persons, in order to bring the law of the Colony in this particular respect into line with the law of England, i.e., s. 12 (1) of the Children's Act, 1908 ?

8. In view of the fact that, in 1917 and 1918, many months of repeated representations by the Government and the Naval and Military Authorities and the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce and the China Association were required in order to obtain Exchange Com-

74

FOREIGN OFFICE,

July 20th, 1920.

SIR,

   1. It being the desire of our respective Governments to establish close commercial relations between the United Kingdom and Esthonia, I have the honour to inform you that, on condition of reciprocity, Esthonian nationals and goods, the produce or manufacture of the territories of Esthonia, will enjoy unconditionally in the territories of His Britannic Majesty treatment at least as favourable in all respects as that accorded to the nationals and goods, the produce or manufacture of the most favoured foreign country. This treatment shall be accorded in all matters of commerce and navigation as regards importation, exportation and transit, and, in general, in all that concerns customs duties and formalities and commercial operations; the establishment of Esthonian subjects in the territories of His Britannic Majesty, the exercise of commerce, industries and professions and the payment of taxes.

   2. Esthonian vessels will enjoy in the ports, rivers, and territorial waters of the territories of His Britannic Majesty treatment not less favourable than that accorded to British vessels, or to vessels of the most favoured foreign country; subject, however, to the right of the British Government to reserve the coasting trade to British vessels.

3. His Majesty's Government further undertake, on condition of reciprocity, to accord freedom of transit to persons, goods, vessels, aircraft, carriages, wagons and mails in transit to or from Esthonia over the territories of His Britannic Majesty, including territorial waters, and to treat them at least as favourably as British persons, goods, vessels, aircraft, carriages, wagons and mails, respectively, or those of any other more favoured nationality, origin, importation or ownership, as regards facilities, charges, restrictions and all other matters.

4. The foregoing stipulations will not be applicable to India, or to any of His Britannic Majesty's Dominions, Colonies, Possessions or Protectorates beyond the seas, unless notice of accession to this arrangement shall have been given on behalf of India or any such Dominion, Colony, Possession or Protectorate by His Britannic Majesty's representative at Reval before the expiration of twelve months from this date. Never- theless, goods, the produce or manufacture of India or of any of His Britannic Majesty's Dominions, Colonies, Possessions and Protectorates, will enjoy in Esthonia complete and unconditional Most Favoured Nation treatment so long as India or such Dominion, Colony, Possession or Protectorate accords to goods, the produce or manufacture of Esthonia, treatment as favourable as that accorded to the produce of the soil or industry of any other foreign country.

As regards India and the British Dominions, Colonies, Possessions and Protectorates, which may have acceded to this arrangement in virtue of the provisions of paragraph 4, either of our respective Governments shall have the right to terminate it separately on giving six months' notice to that effect.

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 second section of the Commissioners Powers Ordinance, 1886, it is enacted that the Governor in Council shall have power to nominate and appoint Com- missioners under the public seal for the purpose of instituting, making, and conducting any enquiry that may be deemed advisable and for reporting thereon:

   And Whereas the Governor in Council has deemed it advisable that an enquiry should be instituted, made, and conducted into the conditions of the industrial employment of children in Hongkong, and the desirability and feasibility of legislation for the regulation of such employment.

   Now I, 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, with the advice and consent of the Executive Council, hereby appoint you :-

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

101

   No. 118. The Honourable Mr. H. E. POLLOCK, K.C., has given notice of the following questions: --

1. Has the Government yet received Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice's Report on the Development of the Harbour? If not, has the Government any, and if so, what information as to when it is likely to receive such Report? Will such Report be laid upon the Table of this Council?

2. Has the Government or has His Excellency the Governor forwarded to the Secretary of State for the Colonies any communication or communications from any person or persons or body of persons with reference to Constitutional Reform other than the communications received by the Government from the Constitutional Reform Association? If the answer to the above Question is in the affirmative, will the Government lay such communication or communica- tions upon the Table of this Council?

3. Has the Government received any communication from the Secretary of State for the Colonies to the effect stated by him in answer to Colonel John Ward, M.P. in the House of Commons (as telegraphed from London under date the 22nd February and published in the local papers) namely, that it has been decided not to make any change in the principle or mode of selection of the Legislative Council of this Colony? If so, will the Government lay such des- patch from the Secretary of State upon the Table of this Council?

4. For how long has the Government been aware that it was feasible to place cars containing 60 persons each on the Peak Tramway without alteration to the present points? Will the Government state what objections, if any, exist to the introduction of such larger cars on the Peak Tramway?

to which the following are the replies:-

1. As a number of plans have to be examined by Sir Maurice Fitzmaurice, some of which are not yet ready, it will probably be some time before any report is received. The question of publication will be considered on the receipt of the report.

2. The Governor is the only channel of communication with the Secretary of State for the Colonies. The nature and extent of the Governor's correspon- dence with the Secretary of State on this or any other subject is a matter between themselves alone. Questions such as this cannot therefore be answered.

As already stated it is not proposed to lay any papers on the subject of Constitutional Reform.

3. The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The decision of the Secretary of State has been notified to the Constitutional Reform Association with whom the correspondence originated.

The Secretary of State's despatch is confidential and cannot therefore be laid on the table.

4. The Government has never at any time had any reason to suppose that the position of the present points has any bearing on the question of the size of the cars.

The objection to increasing the size of the cars is understood to be that entirely new machinery would be required, but the Tramway Company would be better able than is this Government to answer the latter part of the question.

No. 157.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 31st March, 1921, to enquire into the circumstances in connection with the stranding of the British Steamship Hong Wan I, is published for general information.

FINDING.

We find that the British S. S. Hong Wan I, Official No. 73866 of Singapore, of which J. S. LIDDELL (Certificate of Competency No. 477, New Zealand) was Master, left Amoy with cargo and passengers at 5.15 p.m. on January 28th, 1921, en route for Swatow.

On January 29th, at 3.20 a.m., the Good Hope Cape Light was sighted bearing N. 83° W., and course was then altered to N. 83° W. At 4.5 a.m. Green Island was sighted on the starboard bow, and the course was altered to place Green Island one point on the port bow, and speed reduced to six knots. It was then observed that ship was making considerable leeway. Port helm was ordered and the ship struck the Shoals Eastward of Green Island. Engines were put astern and the ship floated after a few minutes, but owing to her making water fast, the Master decided to beach the ship, which he did in the Bay to the West of Green Island where she still remains. The Court is of opinion that the stranding of the ship was entirely due to the careless navigation of the Master, in view of the fact that no attempt was made by him to keep Good Hope Cape Light on a safe bearing which simple procedure would have averted the casualty.

   In view of this fact, the Court orders the Master, Mr. J. S. LIDDELL'S certificate to be suspended for two years, but grant him a First Mate's certificate during that time.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this Thirty-first. day of March, 1921.

On January 29th, at 3.20 a.m., the Good Hope Cape Light was sighted bearing N. 83° W., and course was then altered to N. 83° W. At 4.5 a.m. Green Island was sighted on the starboard bow, and the course was altered to place Green Island one point on the port bow, and speed reduced to six knots. It was then observed that ship was making considerable leeway. Port helm was ordered and the ship struck the Shoals Eastward of Green Island. Engines were put astern and the ship floated after a few minutes, but owing to her making water fast, the Master decided to beach the ship, which he did in the Bay to the West of Green Island where she still remains. The Court is of opinion that the stranding of the ship was entirely due to the careless navigation of the Master, in view of the fact that no attempt was made by him to keep Good Hope Cape Light on a safe bearing which simple procedure would have averted the casualty.

   In view of this fact, the Court orders the Master, Mr. J. S. LIDDELL'S certificate to be suspended for two years, but grant him a First Mate's certificate during that time.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this Thirty-first. day of March, 1921.

No. 158. With reference to Government Notification No. 479 published in the Gazette of the 10th of October, 1919, it is notified that as a result of an agreement made in 1919 by the Governments of the Allied and Neutral Powers, through their representa- tives at Peking, to prevent the supply of arms, ammunition and munitions of war of every description to China, measures were taken by His Britannic Majesty's Minister at Peking to prohibit any person, whether on his own behalf or on behalf of any other person of whatever nationality, from importing into or exporting from China, or any Concession, Settlement or Leased Territory in China, or buying, selling or dealing in, or entering into negotiations for the sale of purchase of or other dealings in, arms, ammunition and munitions of war of every description, excluding sporting weapons and ammunition therefor. An exception was made in the case of transactions authorized by a written licence granted by His Majesty's Minister.

The attention of the public is drawn to the fact that these measures are still in force and that no licence will be issued for the export from longkong to China of arms, ammunition and munitions as described above, unless the Government is satisfied that His Britannic Majesty's Minister at Peking has issued the necessary import licence.

HARBOUR MASTER'S DEPARTMENT.

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.

*

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

1.

While Red Signals are hoisted. 1/20 of

Annual Licence Fee.

While Black Signals

are hoisted

4 of

Annual Licence Fee.

3.

  No. 244.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 11th May, 1921, to enquire into the circumstances in connection with the stranding of the British Steamship Hong Moh, is published for general information.

27th May, 1921.

CLAUD SEVERN,

Colonial Secretary.

FINDING.

  We find that the British S.S. Hong Moh, Official Number 85,862 of Singapore, of which HENRY WILLIAM HOLMES Number of whose Certificate of Competency is 2,279 Hongkong, was Master, left Hongkong on the 2nd March, 1921, for Swatow and Amoy with crew numbering 48 and through passengers from Singapore numbering 1,135, maximum draft was 22 feet 6 inches. She arrived off Swatow about 9.30 a.m. on March 3rd but the draft of the ship was too great to cross the bar so the ship proceeded towards Amoy but owing to persistent representations by the Swatow passengers the Master decided to return and anchored in the vicinity of Bill Island off Swatow and signalled for a pilot to take the ship in to Swatow. A pilot came off and informed the Master that it was impossible to do so on account of the ship's draft. At 5.30 p.m. on March 3rd, the S.S. Hong Moh weighed anchor and stood down to the South and when in a position about 1 or 2 miles North-East or East-North-East of the Good Hope Cape the course was set S. 85 E. by compass, the compass having 1° Easterly deviation, speed 9 knots increased to 10 knots at about 6.30 p.m. The weather was strong North-Easterly wind, rough sea overcast cloudy and visibility not good. It is not clear from the evidence whether the Master intended to pass :-

(1.) South of the Boat Rocks.

(2.) Between the White Rocks and High Lammock Island. (3.) To the North of the High Lammock Island.

If he intended to pass South of the Boat Rock, the wrong course was set. If he intended to pass between the White Rocks and High Lammock Island, we are of opinion that the passage would have been dangerous and undesirable, in view of the weather conditions. and low visibility. If he intended to pass North of the Lammocks Light, the course should have been altered at a safe distance from the Lammocks Light, the course was not altered and the vessel struck the North-West point of the White Rocks at 7.20 p.m. on March 3rd. After the vessel struck, the weather became worse and at 3 a.m. March 4th the vessel broke in two. We are of opinion that after the stranding the Master and Officers did all that was possible to assist the passengers. The sea was too rough to launch boats. At 9 a.m. on the 4th March, the S.S. Shansi of 1984 tons was sighted and closed the Hong Moh and stood by till p.m. on the 5th. The sea was too rough for boat work, though this was attempted by the Shansi. We are of opinion that the Shansi did all that was possible under the circumstances, picking up all the Officers, some of the crew and a few of the passengers who had jumped overboard and drifted passed the Shansi. Many were drowned in attempting this. The Master was drowned while attempting to swim from the Hong Moh to the Shansi. The Shansi then proceeded to Swatow, with about 45 survivors on board, with a view to getting further assistance. We consider the S.S. Shansi's decision to proceed to Swatow where she hoped to obtain further assistance, was a wise and proper thing to do.

  Distress Signals were sent up by the Hong Moh after stranding and a steamer was sighted distant 2 to 3 miles. This steamer signalled by Morse Lamp. No answer could be made by the Hong Moh as her dynamo was out of action and the oil signal lamp was of insufficient power. This unknown steamer did not stand by but proceeded on its course. Other steamers were sighted by day on the 4th and 5th and on the night of the 4th March at various distances from the Hong Moh, none passing close. None of these steamers closed the Hong Moh or offered assistance. Only in one instance have we any evidence that any of these steamers sighted the wreck and in that case we have been unable to call the Master.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 27, 1921.

The S.S. Shansi reported the wreck on arrival at Swatow at about 6.45 p.m. on March 5th. The British Consul was informed. The Agents of the Hong Moh were informed. The former advised S. N. O. Hongkong and requested assistance. The latter sent out a launch on the morning of the 6th.

H.M.S. Foxglove on passage from Shanghai to Hongkong, when 50 miles to the N.E. of the Lammocks intercepted a Wireless Telegraph Message from H.B.M. Consul, Swatow to Commodore in Charge, Hongkong, reporting the disaster and asking for immediate assistance. Foxglove shaped course for the Lammocks and arrived in the vicinity at 10.30 p.m. on 5th March, there was no sign of the wreck in the dark. At daylight on the 6th March, H.M.S. Carlisle, which had been ordered from the Pesca- dores by the Commodore, Hongkong, arrived and the two ships carried out rescue work under great difficulty and at 5 p.m. Foxglove left for Hongkong, owing to coal shortage and engine trouble, with 48 survivors on board. On the 7th March, H.M.S. Carlisle continued the rescue work throughout the day and when darkness set in the rescue work went on by aid of Carlisle's searchlights. At about 8 p.m. Captain E. R. G. R. EVANS, C.B., D.S.O., R.N., H.M.S. Carlisle swam to and boarded the wreck and thereby encouraged and assisted the remaining people on board to gain the boats lying off from the wreck. This went on till about 11 p.m. when the operation was abandoned for the night.

At dawn on the 8th March, the Carlisle's boats again closed the wreck and as no sign of life was seen to exist, the Carlisle left the vicinity for Hongkong with 220 survi- vors on bo d.

    A small boat attached to the Lammocks Lighthouse was observed to render assist- ances by taking people from the adjoining rocks.

Finding.

    We find that the cause of the casualty was the faulty nature of the course set and kept, which as explained above was either wrongly set or wrongly chosen or wrongly continued.

We desire to record the persistent effort at rescue made by the British S.S. Shansi during the 4th and 5th March.

The Court are of opinion that had vessels passing in the vicinity and in sight of the wreck previous to the Shansi's arrival, closed the wreck and ascertained whether it was practicable to render assistance, and if not, reported by Wireless Telegraph or proceeded to the nearest port and reported the casualty, many more lives would probably have been saved.

The Court take this opportunity of recording the prompt assistance sent by the Commodore, Hongkong, the speedy arrival of H.M.S. Foxglove and H.M.S. Carlisle on the scene of the disaster, the skilful handling of the ships, the bravery, endurance, and seamanship displayed by the boats' crews of the said ships and especially the heroic action of Captain E. R. G. R. EVANS.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this 11th day of May, 1921.

9th June, 1921.

No. 33.

  Note 1.-The object of Regulation I is to provide that bonds to secure the payment of estate duty shall be chargeable at the same rate of duty as mortgages, provided that the amount does not exceed the general deed stamp duty, i.e. $20. Under the Stamp Ordinance, 1901, such bonds were chargeable with stamp duty at the same rate as mortgages. Under the Stamp Ordinance, 1921, they are chargeable with the general deed stamp of $20.

  Note 2.-The object of Regulations 2 and 3 is to restore the former practice under the Stamp Ordi- nance, 1901, with regard to the duty to be paid on re-assignments of portions of the property covered by a mortgage. Regulation 3 is a mere drafting amendment and does not alter the duty on certificates of

satisfaction.

  Note 3. The object of Regulation 4 is to make it quite clear that the sub-heading relating to floating policies does not apply to marine insurance. As the Heading stands at present, it might be imagined that the sub-heading relating to floating policies was intended to refer to open marine policies, whereas it really refers to the case of fire insurance.

  Note 4.- Previous regulations made under the above Ordinance were published in the Gazette Extra- ordinary of the 30th April, 1921, and in the Gazette of the 13th May, 1921, (as corrected by Notification No. 236, published in the Gazette of the 20th May, 1921).

5.-(1.) Where an application is made to a magist- rate for a maintenance order against any person, and it is proved that that person is resident in England or Ireland, such magistrate may, in the absence of that person, if after hearing the evidence he is satisfied of the justice of the application, make any such order as he might have made if a summons had been duly served on that person and that person had failed to appear at the hearing, but in such case the order shall be provi- sional only, and shall have no effect unless and until confirmed by a competent court in England or Ireland.

(2.) The evidence of any witness who is examined on any such application shall be put into writing, and such deposition shall be read over to and signed by him.

(3.) Where such an order is made, the magistrate shall send to the Governor for transmission to the Secretary of State for the Colonies the depositions so taken and a certified copy of the order, together with a statement of the grounds on which the making of the order might have been opposed if the person against whom the order is made had been duly served with a summons and had appeared at the hearing, and such information as the magistrate possesses for facilitating the identification of that person, and ascertaining his whereabouts.

(4.) Where any such provisional order has come before a competent court in England or Ireland for confirmation, and the order has by that court been remitted for the purpose of taking further evidence, a magistrate shall proceed to take the evidence in like manner and subject to the like conditions as the evidence in support of the original application.

If upon the hearing of such evidence it appears to such magistrate that the order ought not to have been made, he may rescind the order, but in any other case the depositions shall be sent to the Governor and dealt with in like manner as the original depositions.

(5.) The confirmation of an order made under this section shall not affect any power of a magistrate to vary or escind that order: provided that on the mak- ing of a varying or rescinding order such magistrate shall send a certified copy thereof to the Governor for transmission to the Secretary of State for the Colonies, and that in the case of an order varying the original order the order shall not have any effect unless and until confirmed in like manner as the original order.

(6.) The applicant shall have the same right of appeal, if any, against a refusal to make a provisional order as he would have had against a refusal to make the order had a summons been duly served on the person against whom the order is sought to be made.

(2.) A summons so issued may be served in the same manner as if it had been originally issued under the provisions of the Magistrates Ordinance, 1890.

(3.) At the hearing it shall be open to the person on whom the summons was served to raise any defence which he might have raised in the original proceedings. had he been a party thereto, but no other defence, and

(4.) If at the hearing the pers n served with the sum- mons does not appear or, on appearing, fails to satisfy the magistrate that the order ought not to be confirmed, such magistrate may confirm the order either without modification or with such modifications as may seem just to him after hearing the evidence.

(5.) If the person against whom the summons was issued appears at the hearing and satisfies the magis- trate that for the purpose of any defence it is necessary to remit the case to the court which made the provi- sional order for the taking of any further evidence, the magistrate may so remit the case and adjourn the pro- ceedings for the purpose.

(6.) Where a provisional order has been confirmed under this section, it may be varied or rescinded in like manner as if it had originally been made by the con- firming magistrate and where on an application for rescission or variation the magistrate is satisfied that it is necessary to remit the case to the court which made the order for the purpose of taking further evidence, such magistrate may so remit the case and adjourn the proceedings for the purpose.

(7.) Where an order has been so confirmed, the person bound thereby shall have the same right of appeal, if any, against the confirmation of the order as he would have had against the making of the order had the order been an order made by the magistrate confirming the order.

occupation for the recovery of possession of any domestic tenement, or for the ejectment of a tenant therefrom, shall be made or given only if :-

(a) the tenant shall have failed to pay duly the standard rent recoverable in respect of his domestic tenement; or

(b) the tenant has or shall have failed to perform

some obligation of his tenancy; or (c) the tenant or any person residing with him has or shall have been guilty of conduct which is a nuisance or annoyance to adjoin- ing occupiers, or has or shall have been convicted of using the domestic tenement or allowing the domestic tenement to be used for an immoral or illegal purpose, or the condition of the domestic tenement has or shall have, in the opinion of the court, deteriorated owing to acts of waste by or the neglect or default of the tenant or any such person; or

(d) the tenant has or shall have given notice to quit, or has or shall have agreed in writing to quit, and in consequence of that notice or agreement the lessor has or shall have contracted to sell or let the domestic tene- ment or has or shall have taken any other steps as a result of which he would, in the opinion of the court, be seriously preju- diced if he could not obtain possession; or (e) the domestic tenement is reasonably required by the lessor for occupation as a residence for himself or for his family, or for any person bonâ fide residing or to reside with him, or for some person in his whole time employment or in the whole time employ- ment of some tenant from him, and the court is satisfied that alternative accom- modation, reasonably equivalent as regards rent and suitability in all respects, is avail- able; or

(†) the lessor bonâ fide requires possession of the domestic tenement in order to pull down such domestic tenement or in order to reconstruct such domestic tenement to such an extent as to make such domestic tenement a new building within the meaning of the Public Health and Buildings Ordinance, 1903, and shall have given the tenant three months notice to quit.

(2.) If but for this Ordinance any tenancy would have expired by effluxion of time, or by reason of a notice to quit, or for any other reason, so that the tenancy is preserved only by reason of this Ordinance, the terms of the tenancy so preserved, except as they may be modified by this Ordinance, and except as to the agreed period of tenancy, shall be as far as possible the same as the terms of the tenancy as it existed immediately before the time at which, but for this Ordinance, the tenancy would have expired.

(3.) At the time of the application for or the making or giving of any order or judgment for the recovery of possession of any domestic tenement, or for the ejectment. of a tenant therefrom, or in the case of any such order or judgment which has been made or given, whether before or after the passing of this Ordinance, and not executed, at any subsequent time, the court may adjourn the application, or stay or suspend execution on any such order or judgment, or postpone the date of posses- sion, for such period or periods as it thinks fit, and sub- ject to such conditions (if any) in regard to payment by the tenant of arrears of rent, rent, or mesne profits and otherwise as the court thinks fit, and, if such conditions are complied with, the court may, if it thinks fit discharge or rescind any such order or judgment.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 19, 1921.

(4.) Where any order or judgment has been made or given before the passing of this Ordinance, but not executed, and, in the opinion of the court, the order or judgment would not have been made or given if this Ordinance had been in force at the time when such order or judgment was made or given, the court may, on application by the tenant, rescind or vary such order or judgment in such manner as the court may think fit.

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL.

No. 378.

Regulations made by the Governor in Council under section 4 of the Stamp Ordi- nance, 1921, Ordinance No. 8 of 1921, on the Sth day of September, 1921.

1. The regulation relating to "BE" stamps made under the above Ordinance, and published in the Gazette of the 30th April, 1921, as the first paragraph in Government Notification No. 205, is amended by the addition of the following proviso at the end thereof:--

"Provided that the stamp duty payable under Heading No. 41 of the Schedule to this Ordinance may, at the option of the person liable for stamping, be paid by means of adhesive 5 cents revenue stamps."

2. The following regulations made under the above Ordinance are hereby repealed:-

(a.) The regulation amending Heading No. 3 in the Schedule to the Stamp Ordinance, 1921, and the regulation relating to Dividend Warrants, which were published as the first and second paragraphs respectively of Government Notification No. 217 in the Gazette of the 13th May, 1921, (the said first paragraph being subsequently corrected by Government Notification No. 236, published in the Gazette of the 20th May, 1921).

(b.) Regulations 1, 2, 3, and 4, which were published as Government Notifica-

tion No. 266 in the Gazette of the 17th June, 1921.

COUNCIL CHAMBER,

Sth September, 1921.

S. B. B. McELDERRY, Clerk of Councils.

Note 1.The object of Regulation 1 is to facilitate the stamping of Shippers Books. As the law stands at present, Shippers Books are required to be stamped with adhesive stamps overprinted with the letters "BE", which can be obtained only at the Stamp Office. This is inconvenient for Chinese shipping offices. Regulation 1 therefore provides that 5 cents adhesive stamps may be used for this purpose.

 Note 2.-Regulation 2 repeals such of the existing regulations as have been incorporated in the Stamp Amendment Ordinance, 1921, and are therefore now unnecessary.

 Note 3.-Previous regulations under the Stamp Ordinance, 1921, were published in the Gazelle Extraordinary of the 30th April, 1921, and in the Gazette of the 13th May, 1921, (as corrected by Notification No 236, published in the Gazette of the 20th May, 1921), and in the Gazette of 17th June, 1921.
