Whereas it is provided by section 6 of the Judgments (Facilities for Enforcement) Ordinance 1921 that where the Governor is satisfied that reciprocal provisions have been made by the legislature of any part of His Majesty's dominions outside the United Kingdom for the enforcement within that part of His Majesty's dominions of judgments obtained in the Supreme Court the Governor may by order in council declare that the said Ordinance shall extend to judgments obtained in a superior court in that part of His Majesty's dominions in the like manner as it extends to judgments obtained in a superior court in the United Kingdom and that on any such order being made the said Ordinance shall apply accordingly:

Any whereas it is also provided by the said section that for the purposes thereof the expression "part of His Majesty's dominions outside the United Kingdom shall be deemed to include any territory which is under His Majesty's protection:

Any whereas I am satisfied that such reciprocal provisions have been made by the legislature of the Federated Malay States:

Now therefore 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 do hereby by this order in council declare that the said Ordinance shall extend to judgments obtained in superior courts in the Federated Malay States.

SUPREME COURT HOUSE,

Hongkong, the 12th day of January, 1925.

Approved by the Legislative Council on the 26th day of February, 1925.

COUNCIL CHAMBER,

NOTE.-The above regulation follows the regulations in force in England except that the subject of admiralty law is still retained here though it has been abandoned in the solicitors final examina- tion in England, and the subject of divorce law is abandoned here though it is retained there. Admiralty work is much more general here than in Enlgand, and divorce work much less common. Hence the variation from the English regulations.

 No. 249. The following Order of His Majesty in Council being the Treaty of Peace (Turkey) Order in Council, 1924, is published for general information.

AT THE COURT AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE,

THE 12TH DAY OF AUGUST, 1924.

PRESENT:

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

WHEREAS at Lausanne on the 24th day of July, 1923, a Treaty of Peace with

Majesty:

Turkey (hereinafter referred to as "The Treaty") was signed on behalf of His

 AND WHEREAS at Lausanne on the same date the conventions, protocols and declara- tion mentioned in the First Schedule to this Order were also signed on behalf of His Majesty, and at Paris on the 23rd day of November, 1923, there was also so signed a convention relating to the assessment and reparation of damage suffered in Turkey by the nationals of the contracting Powers and the protocol annexed thereto :

 AND WHEREAS by the Treaty of Peace (Turkey) Act, 1924, it was provided that His Majesty might make such appointments, establish such offices, make such Orders in Council, and do such things as appeared to him to be necessary for carrying out the Treaty and the said conventions, protocols and declaration, and for giving effect to any of the provisions thereof, and that any Order in Council made under that Act might provide for the imposition, by summary process or otherwise, of penalties in respect of breach of the provisions thereof, and might provide for granting exemption from stamp duty in cases where such exemption was required under the Treaty, and for conferring on courts within His Majesty's Dominions jurisdiction in cases where under the conven- tion respecting Conditions of Residence and Business and Jurisdiction such courts are alone to have jurisdiction :

AND WHEREAS the Treaty contains the Articles set out in the first column of Part I of the Second Schedule to this Order (a translation whereof is, for the purpose of con- venience, set forth in the second column thereof) and the last mentioned convention contains the Article set out in the first column of Part II of that Schedule (a translation whereof is, for the purpose of convenience, set forth in the second column thereof), and it is expedient that for the purposes of giving effect thereto the provisions hereinafter contained shall have effect :

AND WHEREAS by section five of the Trading with the Enemy Amendment Act, 1914, it was provided that the Custodian of enemy property thereby constituted should, subject to the provisions therein mentioned, hold any money paid to and any property vested in him under that Act until the termination of the late war, and should thereafter deal with the same in such manner as His Majesty might by Order in Council direct:

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

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

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

138

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 1, 1925.

(i) The Custodian of enemy property shall, on the direction of the Board of Trade, pay or transfer any money held by him or property vested in him under the Trading with the Enemy Amendment Act, 1914, to any person to whom it is payable or transferable under the Treaty.

(ii) The competent authority for the purposes of Article 70 of the Treaty, in so far as it applies to money or other property in the United Kingdom, shall be the Public Trustee.

(iii) All decisions of the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal constituted under Section V of Part III of the Treaty, if within the jurisdiction of that tribunal, shall be final and conclusive and binding on all courts, and any award of the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal may by leave of the High Court or a judge thereof, or in Scotland of the Court of Session, be enforced in the same manner as a judgment or Order to the same effect.

(iv) For the purpose of enforcing the attendance of witnesses before the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal, wherever sitting, whether within or without His Majesty's Dominions, and compelling the production before the tribunal of documents, a Secretary of State shall have power to issue orders which shall have the like effect as if the proceedings before the tribunal were an action in a court and the order were a formal process issued by that court in the due exercise of its jurisdiction, and shall be enforceable by that court accordingly, and dis- obedience to any such order shall be punishable as contempt of court.

(v) The Comptroller-General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks shall have power as from the coming into force of the Treaty in cases where patents and designs are revived under the provisions of Article 87 of the Treaty, to impose such conditions as he may deem reasonably necessary for the protec- tion of the rights of third parties who have exploited or made use of patents or designs during the time whilst they had lapsed.

2. The agreement contained in Article 16 of the Convention respecting Conditions of Residence and Business and Jurisdiction, set out in Part II of the Second Schedule to, this Order shall have full force and effect as law, and for the purpose of carrying out the said agreement the following provisions shall have effect:..

(i) In all cases where, in pursuance of the agreement contained in the said Article 16, courts established in British territory are to have jurisdiction, His Majesty's Supreme Court of Judicature in England shall be the court having such jurisdiction, except where the case is one where, apart from this pro- vision, some other court within His Majesty's Dominions would have juris-

diction:

Provided that where, as respects any case jurisdiction as to which is so conferred on His Majesty's Supreme Court of Judicature in England, on application being made to the Supreme Court of Cyprus, or to a superior court in any other part of His Majesty's Dominions which may from time to time be authorised for the purpose by an Order in Council under the Treaty of Peace (Turkey) Act, 1924, it is made to appear to that court that the case could be more conveniently tried in that court than in His Majesty's Supreme Court of Judicature in England, the Supreme Court of Cyprus, or such other superior court as aforesaid, shall have jurisdiction in the matter, subject to the following qualifications; that is to say :--

(a) where proceedings have been instituted in His Majesty's Supreme Court of Judicature in England, no such application shall be made without the leave of that court ;

(b) Where the matter is one with respect to which the Supreme Court of Cyprus, or the superior court of any other part of Ilis Majesty's Dominions, has not jurisdiction in relation to persons domiciled in Cyprus or that other part as the case may be, nothing in this article shall authorise applications to be made to, or confer jurisdiction on, that supreme court or superior court.

(ii) The Jaw to be administered in His Majesty's Supreme Court of Judicature in England, or the Supreme Court of Cyprus or other such superior court as aforesaid, in any case where jurisdiction is conferred on the court by this

+

139

Article, shall be the law which would have been applicable to the case under Article 90 of the Ottoman Order in Council, 1910, had the case been tried by a court established by and acting under that Order.

  3. The Interpretation Act, 1889, applies for the interpretation of this Order in like manner as it applies for the interpretation of an Act of Parliament, and as if this Order were an Act of Parliament.

  4. This Order shall apply to the whole of His Majesty's Dominions and Protec- torates, except India and the self-governing Dominions, that is to say, the Dominion of Canada, the Commonwealth of Australia (which for this purpose shall be deemed to in- clude Papua and Norfolk Island), the Dominion of New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, the Irish Free State and Newfoundland, and the Colony of Southern Rhodesia, but in its application to the parts of His Majesty's Dominions outside the United King- dom and to British Protectorates shall be subject to such modifications as may be made by the legislatures of those parts or those Protectorates for adapting to the circumstances thereof the provisions of this Order.

autorités de la Turquie, seront réputés acquis et ne pourront donner lieu à aucune réclamation contre ces Puissances ou leurs

autorités.

Toutes autres réclamations en raison d'un

 · préjudice subi par suite des décisions ou ordres ci-dessus visés, seront soumis au Tribunal Arbitral Mixte.

Article 138.

En matière judiciaire seront réputés acquis, sans préjudice des dispositions des paragraphes IV et VI de la Déclaration en date de ce jour relative à l'amnistie, les décisions et ordres rendus en Turquie, depuis le 30 octobre 1918 jusqu'à la mise en vigueur du présent Traité, par tous juges, tribunaux ou autorités des Puissances ayant occupé Constantinople, ainsi que par la Commission Judiciaire Mixte provisoire constituée le 8 décembre 1921, ensemble les mesures d'exécution.

Toutefois, dans le cas où une réclamation serait présentée par un particulier en en réparation d'un préjudice subi par lui au profit d'un autre particulier en raison d'une décision judiciaire émanant en matière civile d'un tribunal militaire ou de police, cette réclamation sera soumise à l'examen du Tribunal Arbitral Mixte, qui pourra, s'il y a lieu, imposer le payement d'une indem- nité et même ordonner une restitution.

Article 140.

Les prises maritimes respectivement effectuées au cours de la guerre entre la Turquie et les autres Puissances contrac- tantes et antérieures au 30 octobre 1918, ne donneront lieu de part et d'autre à aucune réclamation. Il en sera de même des saisies qui, postérieurement à cette date, auraient été, pour violation de l'armistice, effectuées par les Puissances ayant occupé Cons- tantinople.

Il est entendu qu'aussi bien de la part des Gouvernements des Puissances ayant occupé Constantinople et de leurs ressortis- sants que de la part du Gouvernement turc et de ses ressortissants, aucune réclamation ne sera présentée relativement aux embar- cations de tous genres, navires de faible tonnage, yachts et allèges, dont lesdits Gouvernements ont, les uns ou les autres, disposé depuis le 29 octobre 1914 jusqu'au 1er janvier 1923 dans leurs ports respectifs ou dans les ports occupés par eux. Toute- fois, cette disposition ne portera pas atteinte aux dispositions du paragraphs VI de la Déclaration en date de ce jour relative à l'amnistie, non plus qu'aux revendications

with the authorities of Turkey, shall be regarded as definitive and shall give rise to no claim against these Powers or their authorities.

All other claims arising from injury suffered in consequence of any such deci- sions or orders shall be submitted to the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal.

Article 138.

In judicial matters, the decisions given and orders issued in Turkey from the 30th October, 1918, until the coming into force of the present Treaty by all judges, courts or authorities of the Powers who have occupied Constantinople, or, by the Provi- sional Mixed Judicial Commission esta- blished on the 8th December, 1921, as well as the measures taken in execution of such decisions or orders, shall be regarded as definitive, without prejudice, however, to the terms of paragraphs IV and VI of the Amnesty Declaration dated this day.

Nevertheless, in the event of a claim being presented by a private person in respect of damage suffered by him in con- sequence of a judicial decision in favour of another private person given in a civil matter by a military or police court, this claim shall be brought before the Mixed Arbitral Tribunal, which may in a proper case, order the payment of compensation or even restitution of the property in question.

Article 140.

Prizes made during the war between Turkey and the other Contracing Powers prior to the 30th October, 1918, shall give rise to no claim on either side. The same shall apply to seizures effected after that date for violation of the armistice, by the Powers who have occupied Constantinople.

It is understood that no claim shall be made, either by the Governments of the Powers who have occupied Constantinople or their nationals, or by the Turkish Government or its nationals, respecting small craft of all kinds, vessels of light tonnage, yachts and lighters which any of the said Governments may, between the 29th October, 1914, until the 1st January, 1923, have disposed of in their own harbours or in harbours occupied by then. Never- theless, this stipulation does not prejudice the terms of paragraph VI of the Amnesty Declaration dated this day, nor the claims which private persons may be able to establish against other private persons in

Article 16.

PART II.

 En matière de statut personnel, c'est-à- dire pour toutes les questions concernant le mariage et la communauté conjugale, le divorce, la séparation de corps, la dot, la paternité, la filiation, l'adoption, la capacité des personnes, la majorité, la tutelle, la curatelle, l'interdiction; en matières mobi- lières, le droit de succession testamentaire ou ab intestat, partages et liquidations; et, en général, le droit de famille, il est entendu entre la Turquie et les autres Puissances contractantes que seront seuls compétents vis-à-vis des ressortissants non mussulmans desdites Puissances, établis ou se trouvant en Turquie, les tribunaux nationaux ou autres autorités nationales siégeant dans le pays auquel ressortit la partie dont le statut personnel est en cause.

 La présente disposition ne porte pas atteinte aux attributions spéciales des consuls en matière d'état civil d'après le droit international ou les accords particu- liers qui pourront intervenir, non plus qu'au droit des tribunaux turcs de requérir et recevoir les preuves relatives aux questions reconnues ci-dessus comme étant de la com- pétence des tribunaux nationaux ou autres autorités nationales des parties en cause.

 Par dérogation à l'alinéa premier, les tribunaux turcs pourront également être compétents dans les questions visées audit alinéa, si toutes les parties en cause se soumettent par écrit à la juridiction de ces tribunaux, lesquels statueront d'après la loi nationale des parties.

Convention respecting Conditions of Residence and Business and Jurisdiction.

Article 16.

In matters of personal status, i.e., all questions relating to marriage, conjugal rights, divorce, judicial separation, dower, paternity, affiliation, adoption, capacity, majority, guardianship, trusteeship and interdiction; in matters relating to succes- sion to personalty, whether by will or on intestacy, and the distribution and winding up of estates; and family law in general, it is agreed between Turkey and the other Contracting Powers that, as regards non- Moslem nationals of such Powers in Turkey, the national tribunals or other competent national authorities established in the country of which the party whose personal* status is in question is a national will alone have jurisdiction.

The present stipulation does not affect the special attributions of consuls in matters of status in accordance with international law or special agreements which may be concluded, nor the right of Turkish courts to request and receive evidence respecting matters acknowledged above as being with- in the competence of the national tribunals or authorities of the parties concerned.

By way of exception to the first paragraph of this Article, the Turkish courts will also have jurisdiction in the matters referred to therein, if all the parties to the case submit in writing to the jurisdiction of the said courts. In such case the Turkish courts will apply the national law of the parties.

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 can only be made available when all naval movements are com- pleted and will be used only in emergency during the hours of daylight. 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.

  We find that Mr. WILLIAM OGILVY NICOLL, Certificate of Competency as First Class Engineer No. 45672 issued at the port of Dundee in the United Kingdom on 30th July, 1908, while serving as 4th Engineer in the S.S. Taikoo Wan Yi:-

May, 1925, while the ship was at Tjilatjap.

No. 353.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 15th day of June, 1925, to enquire into the circumstances attending the collision between the Steamship Fatshan and Steamship Hang Cheong, is published for general informa-

tion.

1

FINDING.

We find that on June 4th, 1925, at about 5.30 a.m. the S.S. Hang Cheong came into collision with the S.S. Fatshan in the Western end of the Maintland Channel in the Canton River owing to suction caused by the Fatshan passing the Hang Cheong.

We find that Mr. ROBERT RITCHIE (Certificate of Competency as Master No. 031,684 of Dundee) Master of the S.S. Fatshan was to blame in that he asked permission from the Hang Cheong to pass in the Maintland Channel instead of waiting until both ships had arrived out in the main river. We also find that Mr. ALEXANDER JENKYNS (Certificate of Competency as Master No. 03,158 of London) is equally to blame in that he consented to the same and we adjudge that both these officers be cautioned.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this lôth day of June, 1925.
