The proposed extension must not interfere with the running of the locomotives and trucks on the Praya East Reclamation service line, and the Company must at its own cost carry out any plate or track work involved in the raising of the service line at its crossing with the said extension.

(c.) Any alterations of mains, cables, services, and sewers, drains, manholes, &c., involved by the laying of the track to be carried out by the Public Works Department at the cost of the Company,

(d.) All work to be subject to the approval and to be carried out to the satisfaction of

the Director of Public Works.

SIR,With reference to my predecessor's Circular despatch of the 12th of January, 1922, regarding the Trade Facilities Act, 1921, I have the honour to transmit for your information a copy of a letter from the Trade Facilities Act Advisory Committee, together with copies of the explanatory statement and questionnaire referred to, respecting the extension of the Advisory Committee's powers under the Trade Facilities and Loans Guarantee Act, 1922, by which the aggregate of loans which may be guaranteed is doubled (i.e., increased to £50,000,000), and the period during which guarantees may be given is extended for one year-to 23rd November, 1923.

I have, &c.,

The Officer Administering the Government of

SIR, I am directed by the Trade Facilities Act Advisory Committee to refer to Mr. Grindle's letter of the 4th January, 1922, and to state that the Committee would be glad if you could cause the extension of their powers under the Trade Facilities and Loans Guarantee Act, 1922, to be widely known in the Colonies and Protectorates.

I am to enclose herewith 200 copies of the explanatory statement and questionnaire which has been drawn up for the guidance of applicants for guarantees, and to ask that they may be distributed to the officers administering the Government of the various.

  1. In accordance with the Trade Facilities Acts, 1921 and 1922, the Treasury is empowered, on the advice of an. Advisory Committee operating at this address, to guarantee the principal and interest of any loan proposed to be raised by any Govern- ment, any Public Authority or any Corporation or other body of persons for the purpose of carrying out capital undertakings.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 16, 1923.

The attention of applicants is particularly drawn to the following:-

77

(a) * The Treasury can only guarantee loans--they have no power to make a loan of any kind. The advantage of the guarantee is that with the aid of the Government credit so given the applicant should be enabled to obtain money on better terms than he otherwise would be able to do. The Committee and the Treasury indicate the quarter in which the loan. is to be raised.

(b) The Treasury have no power to guarantee a loan which is to be used in whole or in part for the provision of working capital. The whole of the guaranteed loan must be used solely for the purpose of carrying out works of a capital nature.

(c) The Treasury have no power to give a guarantee in respect of any loan which will be used wholly or in part for the purpose of extinguishing existing liabilities or commitments.

(d) The Treasury have no power to guarantee ordinary or preference shares.

2. Applicants should supply information on the following points:-

A.-General particulars as to the total amount and purpose of the proposed loan,

its term, and the suggested method of repayment.

B. The expected benefit as regards employment, giving information as to the particular industries which will be affected, and the approximate date of commencement and the period of employment. If possible, an estimate should be given of the number of men who will be employed weekly during the first three months after work is commenced and subsequent periods (classified as far as practicable according to trades and localities). C.-Charges which can be given as security.

On this point, the Committee desire information as to the assets and revenues which will be available as security and particulars of any exist- ing charges thereon. These particulars should be supplemented by copies, if available, of the audited Balance Sheets and Profit and Loss Accounts for the past five years, and supplemented by a statement for the same period showing clearly the yearly net profits remaining after meeting all outlays and provisions (including Depreciation, Excess Profits Duty and Corporation Profits Tax), and interest and Sinking Fund instalments on all Debentures, &c., which will rank prior to the proposed loan.

D.-The additional yearly net revenue expected to be earned as a result of the

proposed expenditure.

E. From what source it is proposed to pay the interest on the loan during the period of construction, e.g., whether out of existing funds or out of the proceeds of the loan.

F.-Evidence that the undertaking can be completed for the sum estimated. G. Particulars as to the preliminary formalities, if any, which will be neces- sary before issuing the loan or commencing the work (e.g., Sanction of Parliament, Meetings of Debenture Holders, Shareholders, &c.). H.-Particulars of any attempts which have already been made to finance the

scheme, giving details of the terms which could have been obtained.

   3. In accordance with the Trade Facilities and Loans Guarantee Act of 1922, the Treasury is empowered to charge fees as follows:-

"For the purpose of meeting the costs and expenses incurred by the Treasury in administering the said section one, there shall be charged in connec- tion with applications for and the giving of guarantees under the said section, and other matters arising thereunder, such fees as the Treasury may from time to time prescribe.

"}

  * Local authorities and statutory bodies not trading for profit, requiring advances towards expenses are reminded that, under schemes administered by the Unemployment Grants Committee, 23, Buckingham Gate, S.W.1, part of the charges involved in approved works may, under certain conditions, be met by the State.

Attention is also drawn to the fact that the Public Works Loan Commissioners of Old Jewry, London, E.C.2, have certain powers of granting loans to Local Authorities and other bodies and persons. Particulars as to the purposes for which, and the terms upon which, such loans may bờ. granted. can be obtained from the Public Works Loan Commissioners direct.

No. 149.--The following is published for general information.

Regulations for Travellers to Germany.

1.-PASSPORTS AND VISA REGULATIONS.

  All persons crossing the German frontier must produce a valid national passport establishing their identity.

  Passports of foreign nationals must bear the visa of a competent German authority both for entering as well as for leaving Germany.

German nationals require a visa for leaving Germany only.

In the case of travellers living or permanently residing in Germany-no matter whether they are German nationals or not-the visa can be replaced by a permit ("Unbedenklichkeitsvermerk ") issued by the competent German Finanzamt.

  The necessary visas will, in foreign countries, be granted by the German diplomatic and consular representatives, and in Germany by the competent German authorities (Polizeipräsidien, Landratsämter, Bezirksämter, &c.).

2.-REGULATIONS AS TO IMPORT AND EXPORT OF CURRENCY.

  On entering Germany: Travellers carrying more than 50,000 marks in German currency or the equivalent in foreign currency, notes, cheques, bills, any negotiable instruments or in coin should apply to the German customs officials at the place of entry for a certificate stating the actual amount imported. This certificate serves as a permit on leaving Germany to travellers.carrying sums up to the equivalent amount.

On leaving Germany: No coin of whatever currency may be exported from Ger- many without a certificate of previous importation as above. Paper (banknotes, cheques, bills or any other negotiable instruments) up to 50,000 marks or the equivalent in foreign currency can be freely exported. Sums exceeding 50,000 marks may only be exported on producing certificate of importation or an export licence issued by a German Finanzamt.

3.-REGULATIONS AS TO IMPORT AND EXPORT OF GOODS.

Under the existing regulations in Germany, the great majority of articles of any description are prohibited from being either imported or exported except upon the production of a German import or export licence. These regulations apply especially to travellers --

(a.) On entering Germany: Without a certificate of import from the competent German authorities travellers may take with them such articles only as are actually required for personal use during the journey or for the execution of the traveller's profession during the journey.

 (b.) On leaving Germany: Travellers may take with them without providing them- selves with an export licence the following articles: ---

1. Articles which the traveller has taken with him on entering Germany; evidence that this was the case may, however, in certain circumstances be demanded, more especially in the case of articles of value such as jewellery. Travellers entering Germany are therefore advised to obtain a certificate of importation for all such articles from the German customs officials on entering Germany.

2. Further, only such articles as are required for the traveller's personal use during the journey or for the execution of his profession during the journey. In the case of new articles (purchased during his sojourn in Germany) this is conditional upon the traveller declaring same to the

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, APRIL 6, 1923.

97

German customs officials without any attempt at evasion or concealment. In their own interest, therefore, travellers are earnestly advised to open and place before the customs officials all their luggage for examination. 3. In all other cases an export licence is required for prohibited articles. Import and export licences are (provided the articles bought do not in any way contravene the regulations as to the control of export trade) obtainable at the competent export trade departments (Aussenhandels- stellen).

The above regulations are subject to alterations; travellers are, therefore, advised on entering Germany to make enquiries with the customs officials at the place of entry or, before leaving Germany after a prolonged stay, at the Tourists' Offices, as to any changes in the regulations.

MINISTRY OF PENSIONS.

The British War Pensions Act, 1921 (Sec. 4), declares certain awards made before the 19th August, 1921, to be final awards in respect of the disablement due to Great War service, provided that they have not since that date been varied by the Ministry of Pensions. The Act provides for a right of appeal to an independent Tribunal against a final award; and the Tribunal has the power to confirm, increase, decrease or set aside such final award. The right of appeal must be exercised within certain specified time- limits which are indicated below. In the absence of a successful appeal to the Tribunal a final award cannot subsequently be altered.

For the purposes of the Act, and the Regulations made under it, a final award is a decision, declared to be final, as to the rate of disablement (if any) and also in the case of a final weekly allowance as to the period to which the rate of disablement applies, or as to the gratuity (if any) granted.

The awards now declared by the Statute to be final are of the following classes :-

(1) Awards of permanent retired pay or pension.

(2) Awards of "nil disablement.'

per cent.

(3) Awards where the rate of disablement is certified to be less than 1 (4) Finla weekly allowances and gratuities (awarded before the 1st April, 1919). (5) Final weekly allowances and gratuities (awarded between the 1st April,

1919, and the 19th August, 1921).

In the case of awards falling within classes (1), (2), (3) and (4) above, the latest date on which notice of appeal can be given by officers and men overseas is 30th June, 1923; in the case of awards in class (5) the latest date (for officers and men whether resident overseas or not) is 6th February, 1924.

All communications relating to appeals should be addressed by letter as follows:---

(i) Officers and nurses-Secretary, Ministry of Pensions, Officers Branch, 2,

Sanctuary Buildings, London, S. W. 1.

(ii) Other ranks-Secretary, Ministry of Pensions, Overseas Section, Burton

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.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 29, 1923.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

211

    No. 294.-The Honourable Mr. H. E. POLLOCK, K.C., has given notice of the following questions:-

With reference to the Housing Question,

(i.) Does the Government propose to adopt the policy of refusing to pass plans for the reconstruction of houses which are not in a dangerous or dilapidated condition? If not, why not?

(ii) Is it not the fact that the reconstruction of houses tends by increasing the demand for skilled labour and building materials to increase the cost of the erection of new buildings on ground not previously built upon?

(iii.) Is it not the fact that, in the case of domestic tenements, which were originally built prior to the Public Health and Buildings Ordinance, 1903, the re-erection of such buildings, with an additional storey, would, in many cases, hardly give any additional accommodation, owing to the extra requirements as to open space, etc., contained in the said Ordi- nance?

(iv.) Is it not the fact that as the result of reconstructions now pending over 30,000 or some other, and if so what, number of tenants will have to look for fresh quarters to live in?

to which the following are the replies:-

(i.) The Government's powers in connection with the passing of plans are defined in the Public Health and Buildings Ordinance, 1903. It was decided at the last meeting of the Legislative Council not to alter the law in this respect.

ii.) The Government has no evidence which would enable it to make a definite statement. It is prima facie probable that, when demand exceeds supply, the cost of supply will rise, but this tendency may be offset by the introduction of labour-saving devices resulting in cheaper construction, to the ultimate benefit of the community.

(iii.) The fact is as stated, but the Building Ordinance Officer reports that the extra requirements referred to result in vastly improved sanitary condi- tions, so that the community is materially benefitted by such rebuilding. (iv.) The Government has no figures. The new accommodation which has been and is being provided is much in excess of the old accommodation which has been and is being demolished.

APPOINTMENTS, &c.

No. 295.-His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to appoint Mr. ROGER EDWARD LINDSELL to be Postmaster General, with effect from the 27th, June, 1923.

was

We find that the S.S. Loong Sang Official No. 105,383 of London of which Percy Jowitt was Master, was towed out of Kowloon No. 3 Dock on August 17th at about 11.20 a.m. (At this time the Local Red Typhoon Signal, was hoisted) and made fast alongside the Dock Wall. At 4.30 p.m. on that date the "Black No. 2 Typhoon Signal hoisted, and arrangements were made to tow the Loong Sang out to a suitable Typhoon Anchorage in Kowloon Bay. This was done at 5.30 p.m. and the ship lay moored with 105 fathoms on her Starboard Anchor and 30 fathoms on Port, some 3 cables North of Channel Rocks. The S.S. Loong Sang had no rudder and was unable to get up steam on her main engines, being then opened up for survey. The ship lay in this position until about 9.25 a.m. on August 18th when she started to drag. The Typhoon then was practically on the Colony and the wind was blowing with Hurricane Force. The Loong Sang in dragging collided with several steamers and probably with the Channel Rocks when her cables were observed to have parted. The Loong Sang was then entirely at the mercy of the wind and sea, and drifted before the wind, finally colliding with a large Oil Tanker, and doing great damage to her hull between No. 1 and 2 Holds when she started to sink. She continued her drift, passing the Naval Yard heavily down by the bows, until her bow catching the bottom, the ship swung round and foundered at about 11 a.m. in the Southern Fairway E.S.E. 2 cables from Harbour Office and in 8 fathoms of water. Six European Officers and some 9 of the crew lost their lives.

In our opinion the moving of the S.S. Loong Sang out to a Typhoon Anchorage at 5.30 p.m. on August 17th with a sufficient crew on board to work her cables, was a proper and practical procedure, and one customary to this Port when a ship is in Dock- yard's hands, and opened up for survey.

We do not consider that the Loong Sang's cables were dangerously thin.

We consider that the Master and his Officers did all that was humanly possible under the circumstances to save the ship, and we further consider that the action, of the Master, when he found the ship adrift, in personally seeing his crew in their life belts, was a seamanlike and proper act, and one very liable to be overlooked under the terrify- ing conditions, that then obtained, and was the direct means of saving 25 lives.

  We, therefore, find that the Foundering of the S.S. Loong Sang in Hongkong Harbour on August 18th was an Act of God.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 21, 1923.

 We are of opinion that several Heavy Typhoon Moorings should be laid in Kowloon Bay and with sufficient chain attached for ships to lay with. So that in cases of ships under survey at the Docks, and with no steam available, they can thus be more securely moored against Typhoons.

 Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this 15th day of September, 1923.

 We are of opinion that several Heavy Typhoon Moorings should be laid in Kowloon Bay and with sufficient chain attached for ships to lay with. So that in cases of ships under survey at the Docks, and with no steam available, they can thus be more securely moored against Typhoons.

 Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this 15th day of September, 1923.

3. Will the Government explain the legal difficulty, referred to by the Officer Administering the Government in 1922, which prevents His Excellency the Governor exercising his rights of repayment conferred by the Ordinance governing the War Loan of $3,000,000 of 1916 and, if it is the case that the borrowers have been given better terms than the Ordinance author- ises, further explain who the officials are who have caused the resulting loss to the Colony through 6 per cent, being paid on the loan and the money available to repay it being in- vested elsewhere at a lower rate.

4. In view of the fact that there is a clause in the local Ordinance giving the Crown Agents power to use the sinking Fund monies to repurchase and cancel any part of the Inscribed Stock Issues of 1893 and 1906 whenever the loan is below par, have the Government drawn the attention of the Crown Agents to the matter since the last Budget Debate and, if so, what answer have they received.

3.-(1.) Whenever any business or any portion of any business is transferred, with or without the good- will or any portion thereof, the transferee shall, notwith- standing any agreement to the contrary, become liable for all the liabilities incurred in the business by the transferor, unless due notice in accordance with this section shall have been given and shall have become complete at the date of the transfer.

(2.) The liability of the transferee under subsection (1) shall cease immediately notice given in accordance with this section shall have become complete: Provided nevertheless that should proceedings be instituted against the transferee before such liability has ceased the said notice shall (for the purposes of such proceedings but for such purposes only) be deemed incomplete pending the final determination of such proceedings, including all possible appeals, and pending the expiration of all periods during which such appeals may be brought.

(3.) The notice referred to shall contain the particulars hereinafter specified, and shall be given by publication, either before or after the date of the transfer, in the Gazette and in any two of such Chinese newspapers circulating in the Colony as may from time to time be approved by the Secretary for Chinese Affairs, and shall, subject to the proviso to subsection (2), be deemed to be complete upon the expiration of one month from the publication of the notice in the manner aforesaid.

(4.) The production of the Gazette containing the notice shall be prima facic evidence as against both the transferor and the transferee of the statements con- tained in the notice.

(5.) Nothing in this section shall have the effect of relieving the transferor from any liability to which he would
