PRESENT,

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

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

"This Act shall come into operation on the 1st day of July, 1915: "Provided that His Majesty may, by Order in Council, from time to time post- pone the coming into operation of this Act for such period, not exceeding on any occasion of postponement one year, as may be specified in the

Order":

And whereas by divers Orders in Council the coming into operation of the said Act has been from time to time postponed, and now stands postponed, by virtue of an Order in Council of the 31st day of May, 1923, until the 1st day of January, 1924 :

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

Now, therefore, His Majesty, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, in pur- suance of the powers vested in Him by the above-recited provision and of all other powers Him thereunto enabling, doth order, and it is hereoy ordered, that the provisions of the Merchant Shipping (Convention) Act, 1914, shall be postponed from coming into operation until the 1st day of July, 1924.

FINDING.

 We find that the British S. S. Mary Horlock Official Number 131,916 of Harwich, registered tonnage 3249 of whom the Master was Robert Charles Hill, Extra Master 036,616 Sunderland sailed from Tacoma on the 20th December, 1923 bound for Yokohama with a full cargo, including deck cargo, of timber. The ship encountered persistent gales, and rough seas and at 0.30 a.m. on the 26th January during a strong gale lurched heavily to Port causing the cargo on the after deck to shift, damaging the after bulwarks and giving the vessel a heavy list to Port. The ship began to make water in No. 3 hold and continued to list to Port. Pumps were immediately started and an attempt was made to jettison the cargo, when at 10 a.m. ship still making water and the list increas- ing dangerously the Master decided to abandon the ship. The United States S.S. Presi-

dent Taft was communicated with by Wireless Telegraphy and arrived at 3 p.m. inlets were opened to the sea with a view to hastening the sinking of the ship. At 6.30 p.m. on January 26th the S. S Mary Horlock was abandoned in Lat. 32° 09' N. Long. 153° 46′ E. The crew in the Mary Horlock, boat were transferred to the S. S. President Taft. The S. S. Mary Horlock when last seen had a list of 40° to Port and was down by the stern.

That upon the evidence given we find the ship was well found, sufficiently manned and seaworthy at the time of her departure that she was not overloaded; her cargo was well and properly stowed.

  We find that the abandonment of the S.S. Mary Horlock was due to the shifting of her deck cargo, through stress of weather, damaging the ship to such an extent as to cause a leak and thereby a dangerously increasing list.

  We consider that the Master was justified in abandoning the Mary Horlock and scuttling the vessel and we commend Captain Hill and his crew for their seamanship in launching the boat and transferring the crew without accident, under such difficult conditions.

  The Court desires to direct the attention of the Board of Trade to the prompt arrival of the U. S. S.S. President Taft, to the volunteer boats' crew who effected the final rescue which was made possible by the free use of oil.

  Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this 16th day of February, 1924.

With a view to check the breeding of mosquitoes, will the Government pass a regulation making it compulsory to cut off all bamboo scaffolding imme- diately above the joint, so as to prevent a receptacle for standing water from being created?

to which the following is the reply:-

It is being suggested to the Sanitary Board that a by-law should be passed under the Public Health and Buildings Ordinance prohibiting the use of bamboo scaffolding in which there is any receptacle which would retain water. It is a simple matter to fill up any hollow part of a bamboo with cement or other suitable material so that it is not necessary to require that the bamboos should be cut exactly at the joint.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 28, 1924.

No. 174. The Honourable Mr. H. E. POLLOCK, K.C., has given notice of the following questions :-

(i.) Will the Government state what their policy is in regard to the future running of Bus Services in Kowloon, and in particular whether they intend to adopt the policy of inaugurating a regular service in particular areas and routes with a standard scale of fares and schedule time table? (ii.) Will the Government, in connection with the above matter, consider the advisability of stipulating for the chassis and tyres of the Buses to be of British manufacture and for the bodies to be of approved design? (iii.) In connection with the above Question (i), is there anything in the permits or licences given to parties running the present Bus Service to prevent the Government from making such terms as they may think fit with other persons for the running of regular Bus Service as suggested in Question (i)?

to which the following are the replies:

(i.) As soon as circumstances permit it is the intention of the Government to grant exclusive rights in respect of omnibus services in the Kowloon Peninsula for such areas and on such routes as may be deemed desirable.

(ii.) The reply is in the affirmative.

(iii.) The licences at present in force in no way prevent the Government from taking the action indicated in the reply to the first question. As soon as conditions justify the granting of exclusive rights in any area the Government will decline to renew any existing licence in respect of that area. It is desirable that this should be clearly understood by all concerned.

Nɔ. 212.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 9th, 10th and 15th days of April, 1924, to enquire into the circumstances attending the stranding of the British River S.S. Heungshan, is published for general information.

17th April, 1924.

CLAUD SEVERN,

Colonial Secretary.

FINDING.

We find that the British River S.S. Heungshan, Official No. 95,855 of Hongkong, of which Reginald D. Thomas (Certificate of Competency No. 1010 Hongkong) was Master, left Hongkong at 10 p.m. on February 28th, 1924, with cargo, mails, 600 passen- gers and a crew of 80 bound for Canton. At 4.51 a.m. on February 29th, 1924, the ship struck Junk Rock and was subsequently beached on the North Bank of the River where she now lies a total loss.

The ship proceeded by the usual routes experiencing intermittent fog and passed through the Collison Reach Barrier at 4.32 a.m. on February 29th. The weather was then foggy with a visibility of about quarter of a mile. The banks of the river could not be clearly seen and when off Tai Shek Tau we find that the position of the ship was not known to any degree of accuracy. The lead was not used. This, we consider, was wrong, as soundings would have materially helped to define the ship's position. The ship continued at slow speed, and, when known to be off the village of Sun Chu, at a distance of less than quarter of a mile from the Junk Rock, the position of the ship still not being accurately known and the light on Junk Rock Buoy not having been seen, we consider the Master should have acted immediately, stopped the ship and ascertained his position with regard to this known danger. His failure to do this, is, in our opinion, the cause of the accident and in this we find the master guilty of a wrongful act. A member of the crew, an unlicensed person, was acting as Pilot and the Court are of the opinion. that he can not in any way be held to blame for the accident.

Taking into consideration the Master's long and good record: that after the ship struck everything was done by him in a Seamanlike Manner, and the transfer of the passengers and crew effected without accident or panic, the Court adjudge the Master, R. D. Thomas, to be severely censured.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this 15th day of April, 1924.

AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND JAPAN FOR THE MUTUAL RECOGNITION OF LOADLINE CERTIFICATES.

Signed at London, January 21, 1924.

 His Britannic Majesty's Government and the Government of His Majesty the Emperor of Japan, being desirous of concluding an Agreement for the mutual recogni- tion of loadline certificates, have agreed as follows:-

ARTICLE 1.

 The Japanese Government, deeming that, with regard to the loadline, the existing laws and regulations of certain British territories agree in substance with those of Japan, agree that no British ship possessing the loadline certificate issued in accordance with the law in force in any British territory coming within the scope of this Agreement, by the competent authorities of the Government of that territory or by a corporation or association for the survey and registry of shipping recognised by the same Government, and the corresponding loadline mark, in so far as the same ship observes within ports situated in any Japanese territory coming within the scope of this Agreement the laws and regulations relating to the loadline, in accordance with which the certificate was issued, shall be liable to detention or penalty under the laws and regulations of that territory. His Britannic Majesty's Government similarly agree that no Japanese ship possessing the loadline certificate issued in accordance with the law in force in any Japanese territory coming within the scope of this Agreement by the competent authori- ties of the Government of that territory, or by a corporation or association for the survey and registry of shipping recognised by the same Government, and the corresponding load- line mark, in so far as the same ship observes within ports situated in any British territory coming within the scope of this Agreement the laws and regulations relating to the load- line in accordance with which the certificate was issued, shall be liable to detention or penalty under the laws and regulations of that territory.

ARTICLE 2.

 The Japanese territory, coming within the scope of this Agreement, shall be held to consist of Japan Proper and all Japanese possessions and all territories under Japanese administration, except the mandated territories, which have or shall have loadline regula- tions in force recognised by the Japanese Government as equivalent to those applicable in Japan Proper.

 The British territory, coming within the scope of this Agreement, shall be held to consist of the United Kingdom, India and those Colonies which have or shall have load- line regulations in force recognised by an Order of His Majesty in Council as equivalent to those applicable in the United Kingdom; but shall not be held to include the Domin- ion of Canada, the Commonwealth of Australia (including Papua and Norfolk Island), the Dominion of New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, the Irish Free State, New- foundland, the Protected States, the Protectorates and the mandated territories.

In witness whereof the Undersigned, duly authorised to this effect, have signed the present Agreement and have affixed thereto their seals.

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 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

ake 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.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

  1. The Marconi International Maritime Communication Company have issued the attached circular to their operators, and shipmasters are earnestly requested to cooperate in the forecasting and storm warning work of the. Royal Observatory, Hongkong, by arranging for meteorological observations to be made in accordance with the programme given in the circular, and transmitted by the wireless operator without delay.

  2. The accuracy and utility of the Observatory forecasts will increase in proportion to the number of ships cooperating, the accuracy of the observations, and the promptness with which they are despatched. In the interest of shipping, therefore, every master possessing a radio-telegraphic installation should send observations at the hours stated, namely, at 0300, 0600, 0900 and 2200 G.M.T., and endeavour to make the service as efficient as possible.

3. It is requested that mercurial barometers should be used whenever possible, and that owners should cooperate by supplying their ships with at least one good mercurial barometer, of the Board of Trade pattern. Very few aneroid barometers are satisfactory. Generally speaking, the index error varies considerably from time to time, and is seldom constant throughout the scale. Moreover their readings are usually affected by changes of temperature though they are supposed to be compensated in this respect. In every case the readings should be followed by the word "Mercury" if a mercurial barometer is read, or "Aneroid" if an aneroid is read.

  4. It is very important that a few readings (at least four) of the barometer used for the wireless messages should be taken in Hongkong and forwarded to the Observatory, for comparison with the Obervatory Standard. It is also very important that the readings in the radio messages should be exactly as read off, without any correction whatever, except in the case of ships which have not sent comparison observations to the Observatory. Such ships should correct the readings of mercurial barometers for index error, and reduce them to 32° Fahrenheit, sea level, and gravity at 45° latitude; using the best index error avail- able and adding the word "corrected". If an aneroid barometer is used, and no com- parison observations have been sent to the Observatory, the readings should be corrected for index error and reduced to sea level.

Details of the arrangements are given hereunder :-

1. A summary of meteorological conditions at 2200 G. M. T., and weather forecasts based thereon, will be broadcast by Cape d'Aguilar at 0500 G. M. T. and repeated at 0900 G. M. T., on a 600 metre wave. A second suminary and forecast, based on observations at 0600 G. M. T., will be broadcast at 1200 G. M. T.

2. Storm warnings are broadcast at about 0400 G. M. T. and repeated every two

hours until 1600 G. M. T. or until the next warning is issued.

3. When within range of Cape d'Aguilar the Captain will arrange for observations to be made at 0300, 0600, 0900 and 2200 G. M. T. and a message, prepared by the observer, will be handed to the operator for transmission containing the following information :-

(a.) Ship's name, position, and the time of observation (G. M. T.).

(b.) Barometer reading (with no correction whatever, except as mentioned

in paragraph 4 of the Notice to Mariners overleaf).

(c.) Thermometer reading.

(d.) Wind direction and force.

(e.) State of weather (in plain language) fine meaning 0 to 3 of cloud;

fair 4 to 6 of cloud; cloudy 7 or 8; overcast 9 or 10.

In no circumstances will the operator write these messages.

4. Reports for transmission from the ship will be addressed to "Royal Observatory, Hongkong," and immediately on the acceptance of these messages the operator will enter (a) Prefix "S", (b) Date, (c) Time handed in (G. M. T.).

5. All messages handed in under the above conditions shall be dealt with as

follows:-

They shall be communicated to the coast station at the first opportunity,

and shall receive priority as Government messages. Wherever possible, each message shall be repeated.

6. All messages shall be treated free of coast tax, ship tax, and land charges. 7. Reports handed in for transmission written on any form other than on the message form numbered SI, shall be affixed to a message form SI in such a manner as not to cover the space reserved for service instructions and other data. 8. The Hongkong Observatory also sends wireless Time Signals via Stonecutters at the even seconds between 0156 and 0200 G. M. T., and between 1256 and 1300 G. M. T. The 2nd, 28th, 50th, 52nd, and 54th seconds are omitted for the purpose of identifying the signals.

The Time Signals are preceded by the following warning signals from Stonecutters

between 0154 and 0155 G. M. T. and between 1254 and 1255 G. M. T.

CQ DE

BXY HK TIME WAIT

Both warning and Time Signals are sent out on a wave length of 2,000 metres from a 30 kw tonic train (I. C. W.). The Time Signals are dots of about 0.2 second duration. Radiotelegraphic land and ship stations within range of Stonecutters are required to keep silent between 0154 and 0200 G. M. T. and between 1254 and 1300 G. M. T. in accordance with Article 45, paragraph 3 of the Service Regulations appended to the International Rediotelegraph Convention of 1912.

AT THE COURT AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE,

THE 21ST DAY OF MARCH, 1924.

PRESENT,

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

EREAS by Section 445 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894, it is enacted

     that where the Board of Trade certify that the laws and regulations for the time being in force in any foreign country and relating to overloading and improper loading are equally effective with the provisions of that Act relating thereto, His Majesty in Council may direct that on proof of a ship of that country having complied with those laws and regulations she shall not, when in a port of the United Kingdom, be liable to detention for non-compliance with the said provisions of that Act, nor shall there arise any liability to any fine or penalty which would otherwise arise for non-compliance with those provisions:

   And whereas by Section 1 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1906, provision, as is more particularly therein mentioned, is made for applying to foreign ships while they are within any port in the United Kingdom certain sections of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1894, which relate to loadline without prejudice to any direction of His Majesty in Council given under the said Section 445 of the last-mentioned Act:

And whereas the Board of Trade have certified that certain statutory regulations which have been approved by the Japanese Government relating to overloading, so far as regards the assignment of loadline to Japanese ships, are equally effective with the corresponding regulations in force in this country respecting the assignment of loadlines to British Merchant ships:

Now, therefore, His Majesty in Council doth direct that on proof that Japanese ships have complied with the aforesaid Japanese regulations, such ships shall not, when in ports of the United Kingdom, be liable to detention for non-compliance with the pro- visions of the Merchant Shipping Acts relating to overloading, nor shall there arise any liability to any fine or penalty which would otherwise arise for non-compliance with those provisions.

  At 0.30 a.m. on 14th June, ship was steering on N. 56° E. (true) course when bear- ings of Gap Rock Light and Great Ladrone Island were taken, placing the ship two (2) miles South of the latter. At 0.55 a.m. heavy rain set in, the course was altered to N. 70° E. (true) and speed reduced to 8 knots. At 3.10 a.m. land was sighted on the Port beam, helm was put hard a' port; at 3.14 a.m. land was sighted on the starboard beam, engines were put full speed astern and at 3.17 a.m. ship struck the West side of Hong- kong Chau. -

  The Court consider that the ship's position at 0.30 a.m. was not known to any -degree of accuracy as only two bearings were taken with an angle of 150° between them and from this doubtful position we are of opinion that the Master navigated his ship with insufficient and unseamanlike care in that he neglected in setting his course to allow for the set of the tide, but taking into consideration that after the ship struck, every- thing was done by the Master in a seamanlike manner for the safety of the ship, her passengers, and crew and eventually the ship floated off and made Hongkong Harbour under her own steam, the Court adjudge the Master, David Thomas, to be severely censured,

  And whereas I am satisfied that the laws and regulations of the Dominion of New Zealand and of the British Possession of Hongkong, relating to the fixing, marking and certifying of load-lines on ships belonging to those countries respectively are as effective as the provisions of Part IV of the Navigation Act 1912-1920 relating to the same subject-

matter:

Now therefore I, HENRY WILLIAM, Baron FORSTER, the Governor-General aforesaid, acting with the advice of the Federal Executive Council, do hereby direct that, on proof that a ship registered in either of those countries has complied with the law of that country relating to the fixing, marking and certifying of load-lines, she shall not be required to comply with any of the provisions (Excepting only the proviso to sub-section (3) of section 220) of Part IV of the Navigation Act relating to the same subject-matter.

   REPORT OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.-The Colonial Secretary laid on the table the Report of the Finance Committee (No. 5), dated the 22nd May, 1924, and moved its adoption.

The Colonial Treasurer seconded.

Question-put and agreed to.

   RESOLUTION. Mr. HOLYOAK addressed the Council and moved the following resolu- tion, notice of which has previously been given :---

That the following resolution be forwarded to the Secretary of State :-

66

That having regard to the announcement by the Press that an Advisory Body" has been appointed by the Secretary of State for the Colonies to advise and enquire into the "Maisons tolérées" and Social Hygiene" in Hongkong amongst other places, the Unofficial Members of this Council welcome any enquiry which has the object of improving the conditions of life in and upholding the good name of the British Empire and Colonial Possessions, but resent the fact that the inclusion of Hongkong in this enquiry should have resulted from malicious, misleading and exaggerated representations to the Govern- ment which have been widely circulated in England for some time past.

Mr. BIRD, Mr. KOTEWALL, Mr. CHAU SIU-KI, Mr. ALABASTER and His Excellency the Governor also addressed the Council.

Question-put and agreed to.

Mr. KOTEWALL, with the permission of His Excellency the Governor moved the following Resolution :-

That this Council approves of the grant of the sum of Fifty thousand Dollars for the relief

of the distress caused by the recent floods in the Province of Kwangtung.

Mr. HOLYOAK seconded.

Mr. CHAU SIU-KI and His Excellency the Governor addressed the Council. Question-put and agreed to.

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

1. Will the Government state :-

(a) What progress has been made with the structure of the Sai Ying Pun School ? (b) What is the period covered by the building contract?

(c) Is there a "Penalty Clause" for late completion, and if so, to what extent ? (d) When does the Government anticipate that this School will be opened, and having regard to the pledges given by the Government that this work should be accelerated, how is it that progress, so far, has been slow?

2. Will the Government state :-

(a) How many of the new first class Typhoon Harbour Moorings are now available

for service?

(b) When does the Government expect that the whole number will be placed and ready

for use in the Harbour?

3. When does the Government expect to open "Statue Pier" and Landing Stage to public ser- vice, and what is the reason for the prolonged delay in the completion of this very neces- sary work?

4. When does the Government anticipate the completion of the new "Fire Brigade" Station, upon which work appears to have come to a standstill for a considerable time past, and what is the reason for this?

5. Will the Government lay upon the table "Monthly Progress Reports" in connection with all

the above Public Works?

The Colonial Secretary replied.

328 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, AUGUST 15, 1924.

QUESTIONS.-Mr. BIRD, pursuant to notice, asked the following question :-

In view of the widespread want of confidence in the purity of the water supply of the Colony,

will the Government gire reassuring information on the following points? :-

1. How does the purity of the water compare with that of London (or any large British town)

and what is the exact comparison from a bacteriological and clinical point of view?

2. Is the water analysed chemically and examined bacteriologically at regular intervals at the

following points?

(1) Nullahs entering reservoirs.

(2) Reservoirs.

(3) Filter beds.

(4) Actual tap supply.

If so could the exact results be stated for the water supplied from Pokfulum Reservoir during the last few months? Is it a fact that the water from Pokfulum Reservoir is used at such a rate that it is not stored for a proper length of time? •

3. Is there any question whatever of the filter beds being overworked in order to cope with

the amount of water required?

4. If the filter beds are overworked or are not supplying a really high quality water, is it not

possible to use some more efficient methods of filtration?

5. If filter beds are working efficiently what is the reason of

(1) the present brown coloured water supplied from taps?

(2) the addition of chloride of lime?

6. Is there any necessity to boil and filter the water supplied from our taps? If so why?

7. What arrangements are made for the correct addition of chloride of lime, and is it satisfac-

tory when the water tastes of chlorine ?
