Now therefore I Sir REGINALD EDWARD STUBBS with the advice of the said Executive Council do hereby declare the said Society to be an unlawful society.

   Given under my hand and the Public Seal of the Colony of Hongkong this 1st day of February, 1922.

1st February, 1922.

By Order,

CLAUD SEVERN,

Colonial Secretary.

No. 56.

   The Order in Council which appears above has been made, not because the members of the Seamen's Union have struck for higher pay, but because attempts are being made by the Union to paralyse the life of the Colony by procuring strikes in other employments of workmen who have themselves no grievances against their employers. If this were permitted it would cause widespread distress by interfering with the food supplies of the community and with the carrying on of essential services. The actions of the Union thus endanger the peace and good order of the Colony and it has therefore been declared an unlawful Society.

  NOTE :-Regulation 1.-Heading No. 43 authorises a fee of $10 for an Assignment of a Trade Mark. Trade Marks cannot be assigned in gross, but must be assigned together with the good will of the business, and an ad valorem duty of 1% is then payable under Heading No. 15.

  Regulation 2.-The duty payable on conveyances on sale under Heading No. 15 was amended by paragraph (c) of section 6 of Ordinance No. 21 of 1921.

"Provided that the aggregate capital amount of the loans the principal or interest of which is guaranteed under this section shall not exceed the sum of twenty-five million pounds.'

On the 17th January Mr. A. E. Wood was sent to Canton. Mr. Wood was at the time stationed at Taipo, and owing to a misunderstanding he left Taipo by train for Canton before his instructions reached him. A telegram was sent on the same afternoon ordering Mr. Wood to take no action until he received his instructions, but the telegram was delayed en route, and on the morning of the 18th January Mr. Wood had an inter- view with the Civil Governor, although he was not aware of the actual state of affairs in Hongkong. Matters were thereby put into some confusion, and on the 23rd January the Secretary for Chinese Affairs went to Canton in order to explain fully to H. M. Consul- General the exact position.

On the 18th January the Government issued a further proclamation in Chinese to the effect that the shipowners had withdrawn their previous offers, and it reiterated its suggestion of arbitration.

On the 26th January H. M. Consul-General transmitted certain proposals put for- ward by the seamen, which had been communicated to him by the Civil Governor. Apart from matters connected with wages, the proposals contained the following demands:-

The Arbitration Board shall be established at Canton.

The Arbitration Board shall consist of the following:-

(a.) Representative of the Canton Government. (b.) Representative of the Hongkong Government. (c.) Representative of H.B.M. Consul-General. (d.) Representative of the European Shipowners. (e.) Representative of the Chinese Shipowners. (f.) Representative of the Chinese Seamen.

The number of the members of this Board shall be decided by the Chinese and British Governments after due consideration, and this Board shall have the full power to settle the strike.

All seamen shall be employed through the Union, so that no commission is to be paid to the Compradores.

No agreement in connection with the employment of seamen shall have effect, unless the Chinese Seamen's Union has been a witness to it.

No seamen or officer of the Seamen's Union in Hongkong shall be banished for any charge, which has no proof.

On the 27th January, the following telegraphic reply was sent :----

"For Civil Governor, Canton. Your despatch 26th January. Proposal that Seamen should only be employed through the Union, and agreements should' have no effect unless Union has been a witness makes any discussion useless." "Requirements of the Merchant Shipping Law would in any case make it impossible to accept these conditions to say nothing of international questions arising in cases of foreign owned ships.

""

"Proposal to arbitrate at Canton cannot in any case be considered. "

"The ostensible grounds for strike are solely questions of wages. Owners are still prepared to refer these to arbitration by Board appointed by my Govern- ment and suggest that Union should employ delegates to confer with them here to settle preliminaries.

""

STUBBS.

  Between the 4th and the 7th February certain Hongkong Guilds came forward with proposals that they should assist in the negotiations with the seamen in Canton, and their offers were at once accepted.

*

104

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 10, 1922.

On the 7th February the following telegraphic correspondence took place :-

From H.M. Consul-General, Canton, to Governor, Hongkong, dated 7th February.

"Urgent. Your telegram 4th February. Leaders of movement through Com- missioner of Foreign Affairs inform me that they are prepared to proceed to Hongkong to confer with owners on condition that offices of Union be opened again, and on guarantee of freedom from arrest. They state that they are not responsible for intimidation in the Colony, and to appear at a conference as members of an outlawed society would place them in a false position. Please telegraph reply.

66

From Governor, Hongkong, to H.M. Consul-General,

Canton, dated 7th February.

Delegates will be given safe conduct, but Union cannot be re-opened. Point in last sentence need not arise if delegates come as representatives of seamen in Canton and not of Union. Intimidation is undoubtedly rife here, and in Canton and Sheklung. Are the Union authorities, in view of their state- ment, prepared to issue public repudiation of intimidation and to make it clear that men who wish to return to work need not fear the consequences?"

  On the 9th February the shipowners, on the suggestion of the Government, renewed their offer which had been withdrawn on the 18th January; and the Government there- upon issued the following notice in Chinese, emphasising the point that the offer was not finally binding on either side, but was subject to revision by the arbitrators.

"At the suggestion of the Governor, the shipowners are willing to reinstate their former offer of increased wages to take effect from the day on which the sea- men return to work. This scale of wages is merely a temporary scale pend- ing arbitration and is on no account to be taken as a basis from which the arbitrators will work. Addition to it or subtraction from it are alike within the sole discretion of the arbitrators. The scale offered is repeated below :-

Chinese River Steamers.

-

Other Chinese Steamers up to 1000 D.W. Tons. -

Canton, Hongkong and Macao Steamboat Co.'s Steamers. Other British Companies River Steamers, taking the scale of Canton,

In the meantime the Committee of the Tung Wa Hospital had proposed to the Government that they should use their good offices in bringing about a settlement. Other leading members of the Chinese Community were subsequently associated with them, and on the 8th February the Tung Wa Hospital, as representing the Chinese of the Colony, telegraphed to Canton asking the seamen to send delegates to discuss a settlement with them. The delegates arrived on the 12th February and on the following day at a meeting at the Tung Wa Hospital they declared that they could not carry the matter further until the settlement of the question of the re-opening of the Seamen's Union, which had been closed by the Government on the 1st February as being an un- lawful society. The matter was accordingly referred on the 14th February to the Government, who on the 15th February issued a proclamation in Chinese in the follow- ing terms:-

"On instructions from the Government, the Secretary for Chinese Affairs has communicated the following decision to the seamen's representatives :---

1. The Seamen's Union was closed because it exceeded its legitimate bounds and broke the law of Hongkong, not because it asked for an increase of

wages.

!

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 10, 1922.

105

2. The Governor absolutely requires proof of freedom from unlawfulness before he

can change his present attitude.

3. If it is desired to give proof of freedom from unlawfulness, all seamen and all workmen whom they involved in the strike must return to work and Hongkong resume its normal condition, before it can be considered that proof of freedom from unlawfulness has been furnished.

4. If all come back to work first on the conditions offered by the shipowners and await the award of the arbitrators, the Governor will cancel the proclama- tion closing the Union."

  The delegates returned to Canton on the 15th February, and they came back to Hongkong on the 17th February with certain suggestions which were considered by the shipowners on the 19th February. The shipowners' decision was conveyed to the deleg- ates on the 20th February by the Secretary for Chinese Affairs, and the delegates left for Canton on the 21st February. On the 24th February a letter was handed to the Secretary for Chinese Affairs stating that the seamen were not prepared to accept the proposals made.

On the 22nd February a telegram had been received from H. M. Consul-General at Canton, suggesting that there were good grounds for believing that an all-round increase of some 2% on the owners' original offer would be accepted. On the 24th February the Engineers' Society came forward with a similar suggestion and offered to negotiate for a settlement on this basis.

The Government informed the shipowners of these proposals, and suggested that, as it seemed likely that the offer of such an increase would bring the men back immedi- ately to work and would prevent a general strike, it would be wise to add some 2% to the figures shown in the notice of the 9th February which is quoted above. That notice still stood. It pointed out clearly that the ship-owners' offer covered only the immediate present, and that the scale would be increased or lowered in the sole discretion of the arbitrators. The shipowners added 24% to their previous figures, and on the 24th February this information was telegraphed to Canton and was communicated to the Engineers' Guild. The seamen refused the new terms.

On the 28th February, H.M. Consul-General telegraphed that he had information to the effect that, if a meeting between the shipowners and the seamen's delegates could be arranged, there was every prospect of a settlement. On the 1st March a reply was sent by the Hongkong Government that the shipowners were willing to meet the seamen's delegates. It was added that, in order to avoid further abortive proceedings, the Government considered it to be highly desirable that the delegates should be fully empowered to make a settlement.

A further telegram was sent on the 1st March asking Dr. Jamieson to come to Hongkong to discuss the situation, and he arrived on the 2nd March. On the 2nd March telegrams were received from the Consulate at Canton that delegates with full powers were coming on the 4th March; and they arrived accordingly.

On the 3rd March it was arranged that the Hongkong Government should not be represented at the conference, but the Government accepted a suggestion from Dr. Jamieson that he should be present in an unofficial capacity. It was further arranged that, in the event of a settlement being arrived at between the shipowners and the seamen, the representatives of the Hongkong Government should subsequently meet the seamen in order to consider any proposals affecting the Government that they might wish to put forward for discussion. The Secretary for Chinese Affairs, Attorney General, and Clerk of Councils were appointed to represent the Government.

The conference between the shipowners and the seamen took place on the 4th March, and it was announced late in the afternoon that a settlement had been reached. It was then arranged that the seamen's delegates would meet the Government's representatives at 7 p.m.

      The meeting took place accordingly, but as proceedings were about to commence Mr. R. Sutherland, Chairman of the Shipowners' Committee, brought in for signature the agreement between the shipowners and the seamen which had been concluded verbally and had since been set out in writing by the shipowners. The Government's representatives thereupon withdrew, as the Government was in no way responsible for

106

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 10, 1922.

the agreement. It was reported later in the evening that the delegates were unable to sign the document as worded, while Mr. Sutherland had no authority to alter the wording in any material particular; and so a further meeting between the shipowners and the seamen was arranged for the following morning.

  On the 5th March, prior to the meeting, Sir R. Ho Tung approached the Government with an offer which he was prepared to make in order to facilitate a settlement; and he was informed that he was at liberty to convey this offer to such parties as he might think fit. The Government was unable itself to make use of the offer, as it did not wish to intervene in the economic side of the dispute.

  The further conference took place on the 5th March, and an agreement was con- cluded and signed in the afternoon.

  The Government's representatives thereupon met the seamen's delegates, who put forward the following matters for discussion :-

(a) the re-opening of the Seamen's Union

(b) the question of persons in custody in connection with the strike.

(c) the question of banishment of members of the Seamen's Union.

(d) a claim by the guild that they should be allowed to send an interpreter to

attend the signing on or off of articles by Chinese seamen.

(e) the collision between Chinese and armed Government forces on the Shatin

Road on the 4th March.

  With regard to (a) the Government's representatives referred to the Government's former proclamation regarding the re-opening of the guild, and agreed that a public announcement by the delegates of a complete settlement would meet the conditions then imposed.

  In answer to (b) the Government's representatives said that they would ask the Governor to release persons who were held in custody solely on the ground that they were members of the Union. They would inform the Governor that the delegates had raised the question of men imprisoned for offences against the law, but they could hold out no hope of remission of sentence.

  In reply to (c) an assurance was given that no officers or members of the Seamen's Union would be banished on the ground of holding office or of membership.

In connection with (d) the Government's representatives were impressed by a statement made by the delegates that ship's articles were written in English only and not in Chinese and that in many cases men signed under the impression that they were entitled to various privileges which were refused to them when they went on ship-board. It was agreed that any members of the Union who so desired should be allowed to take with them to the signing on or off of articles an interpreter from the Union; with the proviso that this agreement was not to apply to foreign Consulates. It was further stated that the matter of improving the Government's arrangements for providing an adequate interpretation of articles would be looked into.

The last point (e) was met by a promise that a public judicial enquiry would be held and that the Government would be prepared to consider favourably the giving of compensation in the case of any persons who had been killed or injured.

The delegates thereupon agreed that a settlement satisfactory in every detail had been come to, and they issued a notice to that effect on the same evening.

On the morning of the 6th March the Governor in Council rescinded the Order-in- Council declaring the Seamen's Union to be an unlawful society, and on the same. evening the necessary steps were taken to release persons held in custody on the ground of membership of the Seamen's Union, and also a number of other persons who had been detained for further enquiry in connection with the general strike.

HARBOUR MASTER'S DEPARTMENT

No. 206.

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.

2.

While Black Signals

are hoisted. 4 of

Annual Licence Fee.

3.

While Black Cross

is hoisted.

1⁄2 of

Annual Licence Fee.

Thus, a first class Passenger Boat, Licence Fee $12, would have to pay :

1.- $0.60.

2.-$3.00.

3.-$6.00.

A Cargo Boat of 600 to 700 piculs, Fee $30, would have to pay :-

1.-$1.50.

2.-$7.50.

An "Other Boat", Fee $5, would have to pay :-

3.-$15.00.

1.-$0.25.

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

243

In view of the one month's notice given by the China and Japan Telephone & Electric Co., Ltd., to increase the rates charged to its subscribers (in the case of business lines by 90 per cent.) have these new charges been sanctioned by the Government; and, if so, will the Government lay on the table the papers on which their decision was based?

Will the Government explain how much of the proposed increase is justified by higher working costs, and how much by rental on heavy expenditure (in the Company's own words) "about to be undertaken for the erection of a new Central Exchange and new Central Battery installation," and why it should be held justifiable for subscribers to pay such increased rates before the improvements have been completed or any material expenditure incurred ?

NOTICE OF QUESTIONS.-Mr. BIRD gave notice that he will put the following ques- tions at the next meeting of the Council:-

1. In view of the fact that the Government refused to adopt the recommendations of the Com- mittee appointed to enquire into delays in connection with the passing of plans as relating to those referred to the Governor in Council, will the Government state the average period that now elapses between the time when the plans leave the Building Authority's Office, and the notification to that officer of the Council's decision?

2. Does the Government claim that when plans are referred to the Gorernor in Council the provisions of Section 222 Sub-Sections (2) and (3) of the Public Health and Buildings Ordinance, 1903, are rendered null and roid ?

3. If that is the case will the Gorrernment state on what grounds such claim is made?

QUESTION.-Mr. CHOW SHOU-SON, pursuant to notice, asked the following question :-

Will the Gorernment before binding itself depute a competent official to explain to the combined Committees of the Hongkong General Chamber of Commerce and the Chinese General Chamber of Commerce the terms of the Agreement with the China & Japan Telephone & Electric Co., Ltd., so that the commercial community may realise whether the terms are just and equitable from their point of riew as public subscribers to the Telephone Co. ?

The Colonial Secretary replied.

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

1. Assuming that the recent valuation by experts of the China & Japan Telephone & Electrie Co., Ltd., undertaking in Hongkong is in the neighbourhood of £280,000 will the Govern- ment explain why this has been arrived at on the basis of a compulsorily acquired under- taking when the new local company to be formed to purchase same is to comprise the same shareholders viz: (according to the latest records at the Supreme Court), the Oriental Telephone Co., and one other and in view of this fact will the Government order a new valuation to be made on a commercial basis?

2. Is the Government aware that according to the latest filed Balance Sheet 31st December, 1920, the "value of the Goodwill and undertaking is put down at £103,000 and that the Auditors of the Company (Messrs. Price Waterhouse & Co., C,A.) certify the Balance Sheet subject to specific provision for depreciation and accruing renewals' which means that as a continuing company it is doubtful whether £103,000 is a fair value for the plant having regard to old age and partial obsolescence and that this reselling to itself at a profit of (say) £150,000 means the extortion of higher rates from subscribers largely to recoup the new Local Company for depreciation and obsolescence on the old plant?

3. In view of the fact that the China & Japan Telephone & Electric Co., Ltd., is in a sound financial condition, even without taking into account the assumed accretion in the capital value of its assets, and is now seeking to break the contract of 1905 on the ground that the £10 rate does not pay as well as the old $100 rate which latter rate if it had been continued would have proved a source of great profit to the Company during the regime of the high rate of the dollar and bearing in mind that the new rates not only reinstate the old rate but are in themselves 40% to 54% higher will the Government claim damages based on the present value of the dollar 2/6 i.e. say 5,000 subscribers @ $20.00 each for the 71⁄2 years remaining of the agreement expiring 1930 in all say $750,000 or thereabouts?

The Colonial Secretary replied.

RENTS BILL.-The Attorney General addressed the Council and moved the Third reading of the Bill intituled An Ordinance to extend temporarily the provisions of the Rents Ordinances, 1921, with certain amendments.

The Colonial Secretary seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

Bill read a third time and passed.

the King has jurisdiction in China:

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

1.-(1) This Order may be cited as "The China (Amendment) Order in Council, 1921," and shall be read as one with the China Order in Council, 1904 (in this Order referred to as "the Principal Order"), and the said Order and any other Orders in Council amending the said Order may be cited together as "The China Orders in Council, 1904 to 1921."

  (2) This Order shall not apply to places within the limits of the Consular District of Kashgar.

2. The following provisions are substituted for Article 162 of the Principal Order :- (1) A register of British subjects shall be kept in the office of every Consulate

in China.

(2) Every British subject resident in China shall, in the month of January of each year, be registered at the Consulate of the Consular District within which he resides, provided that if some other Consulate is more easy of access, he may, with the assent of the Consular Officer, be registered there. A British subject arriving in China must apply for registration within one month after his arrival; provided that a person who fails to apply for or to obtain registration within the time limited by this Article may be registered at any time if he excuses his failure to the satisfaction of the Consular Officer.

(3) Where a person is in possession of a valid British passport, the Consular Officer shall, on the first registration of any such person, endorse on the passport without further fee than that provided for in sub-article (6) hereunder a certificate of registration in such form as may be pres- cribed by the Secretary of State.

(5) A person registered in any register of British subjects established under the provisions of any Order in Council which have been repealed shall be registered under the provisions of this Order, unless the Consular Officer is satisfied after enquiry that the previous registration was erroneous or that such person is not entitled to registration under the provisions of this Order.

(6) Every person shall, on every registration of himself, and on every renewal of the registration, pay a fee of two dollars, or such other fee as the Secretary of State from time to time appoints.

   (2) For that purpose the Judge of the Supreme Court shall, on the receipt by him of a certified printed copy of the Order, cause the same to be affixed and exhibited conspicuously in that office. He shall also keep the same so affixed and exhibited during one month from that first exhibition.

   (3) Proof shall not in any proceeding or matter be required that the provisions of this Article have been complied with, nor shall any act or proceeding be invalidated by any failure to comply with any such provisions.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 15, 1922. 341

The principal amendments which are embodied in the Ministry's new Order are to - the following effect :-

(1) The form of certificate required to be furnished in respect of each consign- ment of any of the scheduled plants imported into this country is pres- cribed in the Third Schedule to the Order.

(2) The certificate of health must be issued not more than 14 days prior to the

date of shipment, instead of 30 days as before.

(3) The schedule of pests has been extended.

(4) In place of the requirement that each package shall bear a label and a copy certificate, in future there will be required only two copy certificates in respect of each consignment, one of which must be produced to the Customs officer at the port of entry, whilst the other should proceed with the consignment to the consignee. In the case of packages imported through the post a copy of the certificate need not be produced to the Customs officer, but a copy must be affixed to the package. The original certificate should be forwarded to this Ministry, as before. (5) As regards potatoes, no exception is now made in the case of new potatoes. (6) From paragraph 3 of the Third Schedule it will be seen that plants, or

parts thereof, will not be deemed to be healthy which are attacked by any insect or pest mentioned in the Schedule to the Sale of Diseased Plants Order of 1922. The Schedule to the latter Order, which has also been issued recently by the Ministry, varies slightly from that of the corresponding Order of 1921.

The Ministry is anxions that the requirements of this amended Order shall be made known as widely as possible in countries which export plants to this country, and I am to ask you to be so good as to move the Secretary of State to cause the necessary instruc- tions to be given for the notification of the requirements of this Order to the Colonial and Dominion Governments concerned. In this connection, copies of both the Orders above mentioned are enclosed herewith and further copies will be furnished as desired.
