COLONIAL SECRETARY'S DEPARTMENT.

No. 9.-The following Extract from a letter from the Privy Council to the Secre- tary of State for the Colonies, dated 12th August, 1925, is published for general informa- tion:-

I am directed by the Lord President of the Council to state that the General Medical Council, having decided, in pursuance of the Medical Acts, 1858 and 1862, to prepare for issue a new Edition of the British Pharmacopoeia, to take the place of the Edition of 1914, have appointed a Committee, of which Sir DONALD MACALISTER, Bt., K.C.B., President of the General Council, is Chair- man, to make the necessary arrangements under the direction of the Council. In view of the preparation of this new Edition, the General Council seek, as on former occasions, the assistance of the Government Departments concerned in transmitting to the recognised Medical and Pharmaceutical Authorities. within the several parts and divisions of the British Empire overseas, a cordial invitation to forward for the use of the Committee such suggestions or, memoranda, regarding local pharmacopoeial requirements, as may serve to increase the general usefulness of the British Pharmacopæia throughout the Empire. Such suggestions or memoranda should take the form of definite proposals for omissions from, additions to, or alterations in the Official British Pharmacopoeia, 1914, and should be forwarded direct to the Offices of the General Medical Council, 44, Hallam Street, Portland Place, London, W.1.

No. 10.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 6th day of January, 1926, to enquire into a charge of stranding against Mr. E. H. HISTED, Master of the British Steamship Tean, is published for general information.

FINDING.

    We find that the S.S. Tean, Official No. 118385 of London of which Mr. ERNEST HAROLD HISTED, Certificate of Competency as Master No. 4260 of Hongkong is Master, grounded in the Hainan Strait in a position 2 miles N. 68 W. from Mandarin Cap at 4.41 p.m. on 19th December, 1925. We find that the grounding was caused by Mr. ERNEST HISTED under estimating the visibility at the time which we consider to be an error of Judgment not amounting to culpability.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this 6th day of January, 1926.

NOTICES.

No. 96.-As a special and temporary arrangement, the Governor in Council is prepared, in anticipation of intended legislation, and until further notice, to receive applications for refunds of rates in any case where two or more floors of a tenement have been vacant during the whole of any month. Applications will not be considered where only one floor was vacant, because the assessment, itself makes allowance for certain possible vacancies. For the same reason, a refund, when granted, will not be a refund of the whole amount of the rates attributable to all the vacant floors. For example, where two floors out of three were vacant the refund will probably be of the amount of the rates attributable to one of those two vacant floors.

No refunds will be granted in respect of any month previous to February, 1926.

The fact that the rates were not paid in advance in January will not necessarily be a bar to relief in respect of February and March, 1926.

   If this special and temporary arrangement is continued in the next quarter, i.e., April to June, relief in that quarter will probably depend on payment of the rates in advance during April.

Applications for refunds should be sent to the Colonial Treasurer.

information.

FINDING.

We find that :-

(1) That S.S. Hunan Official No. 104835 of London commanded by Mr. WILLIAM GEORGE MCKENZIE, Certificate of Competency as Master No. 4238 of Hongkong dated 15th March, 1924, did at 7.26 a.m. on 1st February, 1926, run aground on an uncharted patch in an approximate position 290° from Lamko Lighthouse distance 63 miles. That after getting off from this position she did at 7.48 a.m. the same day ground in a position Lamko Lighthouse S. 89° E. true. Lamko Hill S. 30° E. true.

We are of opinion that the navigation of the Hunan prior to the first grounding was correct and that no carelessness nor neglect was displayed, that positions given in evidence are correct and that apparently safe courses were steered. We are further of opinion that the second grounding was caused by the Hunan refusing to answer her helm when under stern way and to being swept down onto the bank by the tide setting E.N.Elx.

We find that Mr. WILLIAM GEORGE MCKENZIE is exempt from all blame and that after each grounding he did all in his power to get his ship off.

(2) The S.S. Kweiyang, Official No. 145216 of London commanded by Mr. DAVID HENDERSON MARTIN, Certificate of Competency as Extra Master No. 033025 of Leith dated 15th September, 1902, did at about 10.10 a.m. (Hongkong time) on February 3rd, 1926, ground in a position Lamko Lighthouse N. 88° E. true Lamko Hill S. 32° E. true.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 5, 1926.

79

We consider that this grounding is attributable to the tow shackle to the S.S. Hunan parting leaving the Kweiyang in an unmanageable state in dangerous waters, and that she was swept on to the reef before Mr. MARTIN had opportunity to ger her clear.

   We find that Mr. DAVID HENDERSON MARTIN is exempt from all blame, that he was fully justified in going to the assistance of the S.S. Hunan and that considering the circumstances he did all that was possible both before and after grounding for the safety of his ship.

   (3) A general warning should be issued to shipping cautioning them to give a clear berth to the uncharted patch mentioned in (1).

   Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hongkong, this 27th day of February, 1926.

ARTICLE 3.

   In no case nor on any consideration whatever shall the High Contracting Parties be bound to surrender their own subjects, whether by birth or naturalisation.

ARTICLE 4.

ARTICLE 7.

A person surrendered can in no case be kept in custody or be brought to trial in the State to which the surrender has been made for any other crime or offence, or on account of any other matters, than those for which the extradition shall have taken place, until he has been restored, or has had an opportunity of returning, to the State by which he has been surrendered.

82

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 5, 1926.

This stipulation does not apply to crimes or offences committed after the extradition.

ARTICLE S.

The requisition for extradition shall be made through the diplomatic agents of the High Contracting Parties respectively.

  The requisition for the extradition of an accused person must be accompanied by a warrant of arrest issued by the competent authority of the State requiring the extradi- tion, and by such evidence as, according to the laws of the place where the accused is found, would justify his arrest if the crime or offence had been committed there.

If the requisition relates to a person already convicted, it must be accompanied by the sentence of condemnation passed against the convicted person by the competent court of the State that makes the requisition for extradition, provided that a sentence passed in contumaciam is not to be deemed a conviction, but a person so sentenced may be dealt with as an accused person.

ARTICLE 9.

If the requisition for extradition be in accordance with the foregoing stipulations, the competent authorities of the State applied to shall proceed to the arrest of the fugitive.

ARTICLE 10.

   A criminal fugitive may be apprehended under a warrant issued by any police magistrate, justice of the peace, or other competent authority in either State, on such information or complaint and such evidence, or after such proceedings, as would, in the opinion of the authority issuing the warrant, justify the issue of a warrant if the crime or offence had been committed or the person convicted in that part of the dominions of the two Contracting Parties in which the magistrate, justice of the peace, or other com- petent authority, exercises jurisdiction. He shall, in accordance with this article, be discharged, if within the term of thirty days a requisition for extradition shall not have been made by the diplomatic agent of the State claiming his extradition in accordance with the stipulations of this treaty. The same rule shall apply to the cases of persons accused or convicted of any of the crimes or offences specified in this treaty, and com- mitted on the high seas on board any vessel of either State which may come into a port of the other.

ARTICLE 11.

   The extradition shall take place only if the evidence be found sufficient, according to the laws of the State applied to; either to justify the committal of the prisoner for trial, in case the crime or offence had been committed in the territory of the same State or to prove that the prisoner is the identical person convicted by the courts of the State which makes the requisition, and that the crime or offence of which he has been con- victed is one in respect of which extradition could, at the time of such conviction, have been granted by the State applied to; and no criminal shall be surrendered until after the expiration of fifteen days from the date of his committal to prison to await the warrant for his surrender.

ARTICLE 12.

   In the examinations which they have to make in accordance with the foregoing stipulations, the authorities of the State applied to shall admit as valid evidence the sworn depositions or the affirmations of witnesses taken in the other State, or copies thereof, and likewise the warrants and sentences issued therein, or copies thereof, and certificates of, or judicial documents stating the fact of a conviction, provided the same are authenticated as follows:-

1. A warrant, or copy thereof, must purport to be signed by a judge, magis- trate, or officer of the other State, or purport to be certified under the hand of a judge, magistrate or officer of the other State to be a true copy thereof, as the case may require.

2. Depositions or affirmations, or the copies thereof, must purport to be certified, under the hand of a judge, magistrate, or officer of the other State, to be the original depositions or affirmations, or to be true copies thereof, as the case may require.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 5, 1926.

83

3. A certificate of, or judicial document stating the fact of a conviction must purport to be certified by a judge, magistrate, or officer of the other State.

In every case such warrant, deposition, affirmation, copy, certificate, or judicial document must be authenticated, either by the oath of some witness, or by being sealed with the official seal of the Minister of Justice, or some other Minister of the other State, or by any other mode of authentica- tion for the time being permitted by the law of the State to which the application for extradition is made.

ARTICLE 13.

    If the individual claimed by one of the High Contracting Parties in pursuance of the present treaty should be also claimed by one or several other Powers on account of other crimes or offences committed within their respective jurisdictions, his extradition shall be granted to the State whose claim is earliest in date, unless such claim is waived.

ARTICLE 14.

T

    If sufficient evidence for the extradition be not produced within two months from the date of the apprehension of the fugitive, or within such further time as the State applied to, or the proper tribunal thereof, shall direct, the fugitive shall be set at liberty.

ARTICLE 15.

NOTICES.

COLONIAL SECRETARY'S DEPARTMENT.

No. 136. The following is published for general information :-

Necessity of Visas for Travellers to China.

Travellers entering China by any overland route or by any port, other than a treaty Fort, are required by Chinese gulations to hold passports which have been viséd by a Chinese Diplomatic or Consular officer, and it is understood that these regulations will be strictly applied in the future.

2. Cases have occurred recently in which British travellers have arrived at Manchouli, the frontier station on the Trans-Siberian Railway, without Chinese visas. British subjects applying for passport facilities for China, should declare their intention of proceeding by an overland route, and obtain a Chinese visa before departure, should they fail to do so they are liable to encounter serious difficulties.

3. Travellers who proceed to China viâ Siberia and Kwangtung leased territory (Dairen) must also obtain a Japanese transit visa or, if staying in Dairen en route, an ordinary Japanese visa.

   No. 265.-The following Board of Trade Memorandum on import into and export from the British Isles of firearms and ammunition is published for information.

14th May, 1926.

W. T. SOUTHORN,

Colonial Secretary.

   1. The following arrangements have been made with effect from 1st January, 1926, regarding the import and export of firearms and ammunition by holders of Firearm Certificates issued to them by the Police Authorities in Great Britain or Northern Ireland under Section 1 (1) of the Firearms Act, 1920.

   2. A holder of a valid Firearm Certificate may take with him out of Great Britain or Northern Ireland or bring back with him into Great Britain or Northern Ireland, the firearms and ammunition which the Firearm Certificate entitles him to hold in Great Britain or Northern Ireland, provided that the Firearm Certificate is produced by him with the firearms and ammunition to the Customs Authorities at the port of departure at the time of export and at the port of entry at the time of import. No Licence will be required by the holder of the Firearm Certificate in such a case.

3. Import and export under the above arrangements will only be permitted if the following conditions are complied with:-

(a) The firearms and ammunition must be covered by the Firearm Certificate. A Licence will be necessary in respect of any firearm and ammunition not covered by the Firearm Certificate;

(b) The Firearm Certificate must be valid.

An out of date Firearm Certificate

will not be accepted; [Firearm Certificates are valid for 3 years only in Great Britain and for one year only in Northern Ireland.]

(c) The firearms and ammunition must be carried by the owner.

If they are carried by any person other than the owner, e.g., by a relative of the owner or by a firm of forwarding agents, a Licence and not a Firearm Certificate must be produced to the Customs Authorities.

(d) The Firearm Certificate must be produced to the Customs Authorities by the holder at the time of arrival or departure together with the firearms and ammunition covered by the Certificate in order that they can be checked against it by the Customs Authorities.

4. Smooth bore Shot Guns and Ammunition therefor. Although not necessary in Great Britain, a Firearm Certificate is required to authorise the possession of smooth bore shot guns and shot cartridges in Northern Ireland.

Smooth bore shot guns and ammunition therefor may only be exported to the following destinations under Board of Trade Licences [except in the case of shot guns and shot cartridges which are included on Firearm Certificates issued by the authorities in Northern Ireland. These cases will come under the provision set out in paragraphs 2 and 3 above]

The names of the observing stations included in the morning and evening broadcast are given below, together with the hours at which the observations are taken at each station.

As it has been found impossible to secure complete synchronism, the morning baro- meter readings will be reduced approximately to 2200 and the afternoon observations to 0600 G.M.T.

The fifth and sixth figures the temperature of the air in degrees Fahrenheit, the seventh and eighth the temperature of evaporation, the ninth and tenth the direction of the wind (00 North; 04 East; 08 South;

- 12 West) the eleventh the force of the wind on the Beaufort scale, 9 meaning 9 or above. The twelvth the weather according to the following code:

Regulations made by the Governor in Council under section 5 of the Ferries Ordi- nance, 1917, Ordinance No. 28 of 1917, on the 4th day of June, 1926.

1. Regulation 38 of the regulations appearing under the heading "I.-CENTRAL" on pages 744 to 754 of the Regulations of Hongkong, 1844-1925, is rescinded and the following regulation is substituted therefor-

38. If a licensee of any ferry in respect of which rent is payable fails to pay any instalment of the rent when due, it shall be lawful for the Governor in Council by order to declare that the powers and privileges of the licensee in respect of the said ferry shall upon a date specified in the said order cease and determine;. and all the said powers and privileges of the said licensee shall absolutely cease and determine at midnight on the said date.

{

2. Regulation 38 of the said regulations, as enacted by the foregoing regulation, shall apply to all licences whatsoever already granted or which may hereafter be granted, in respect of any area, under the Ferries Ordinance, 1917.

CIRCULAR.

W. T. SOUTHORN,

Colonial Secretary.

DOWNING STREET,

27th April, 1926...

 SIR, I have the honour to inform you that the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs has recently notified a change from the long-established custom, dating back to 1873 and possibly even further, under which documents legalised at the British Consulate-General have been in turn presented at the French Ministry for Foreign Affairs for the attestation there of the consular signatures on the documents, in order to impart to them the neces- sary legal force for their use in France.

 2. The Ministry has adopted a new procedure, requiring that all documents intended for use in France shall henceforth be legalised by French consular officers stationed in the countries in which the documents originate.

 3. I have to request that you will take such steps as may be necessary to ensure that any British subjects from the territory under your jurisdiction proceeding to France with documents for use in that country shall invariably obtain the necessary legalisation from the local French consular officers before their departure and not depend on any form of legalisation in France.

I have, &c.,

The Officer Administering the Government of

No. 396.-The following amendment of the l'ension Minute which appears in the General Orders of the Hongkong Government is published for information.

    The Pension Minute is amended by the deletion of clause No. 13 and the substitu- tion therefor of the following:-

"No. 13.

     1. In the case of abolition of the office of an officer who is borne on the Fixed Establishment of the Colony the pension or gratuity grantable to such officer will be as follows:-

(a) If the officer has completed one hundred and twenty months' gross service he may be granted a pension of one-seven-hundred-and-twentieth of his salary for each month of his service counting for pension in accordance with clause No. 11, with an addition to such service of one month for each complete period of two months' service so counting for pension; in no case shall the addition exceed one hundred and twenty months, and in no case shall the number of months to be added to the actual service exceed that which, if added to the age of the officer, would bring that age up to sixty years. This paragraph (a) deals completely with the ascertainment of the amount of pension grantable in the case aforesaid, accordingly no increase or addition-for example the five-sixtieths of salary mentioned in clause No. 1 paragraph 1 sub-paragraph (2)-shall be made.

(b) If the officer has not completed one hundred and twenty months' gross service he may be granted a gratuity of one-twelfth of a month's salary for each month of service counting for pension in accordance with clause No. 11, plus an addition of fifty per cent. thereon.

    2. An officer who is granted a pension or gratuity under this clause shall be liable to be recalled to the public service for re-employment."

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 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 available and adding the word "corrected". If an aneroid barometer is used and no comparison observations have been sent to the Observatory, the readings should be corrected for index error and reduced to sea level.

5. It is requested that 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 for a message, prepared by the observer, to 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 above).

Land Officer.

ROYAL OBSERVATORY, HONGKong.

NOTICE TO MARINERS.

1. In their Circular No. 403 the Marconi International Maritime Communication Company have authorized their operators to send weather reports to the Royal Observa- tory, Hongkong, and shipmasters are earnestly requested to co-operate in the forecasting and storm-warning work of the Observatory, by arranging for meteorological observa- tions to be made in accordance with the programme given below, 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 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.

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

paragraph 4 above).

Note:-Paragraphs 5-9 are extracted from the Marconi Company's Circular No. 403.

(c.). Thermometer reading.

(d.) Wind direction and force.

(e.) State of Sea.

(f.) 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.

6. 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.).

   7. 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.

8. All messages shall be treated free of coast tax, ship tax, and land charges.

   9. 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.

10. A special watch on the 600 metre wave will be kept by Cape d'Aguilar for ships calling with these messages from 0315 to 0345, 0615 to 0645, 0915 to 0945, and 2215 to 2245, G.M.T. or until all meteorological messages are cleared.

Ships calling with these messages are advised to call with prefix "S".

The information broadcast by the Royal Observatory, Hongkong, is as follows:-

1. Meteorological observations from various stations in the Far East will be broadcast by Cape d'Aguilar (V.P.S.) on a 600 metre spark at 0400 and 1200 G. M. T. and repeated on 2800 metres C. W. at 0500 and 1300, respec- tively. These messages will be followed immediately by the weather reports and forecasts which were formerly broadcast at 0500 and 1200 G. M. T. The names of the observing stations included in the morning and evening. broadcast are given below, together with the hours at which the observations are taken at each station.

As it has been found impossible to secure complete synchronism, the morning barometer readings will be reduced approximately to 2200 and the afternoon observations to 0600 G. M. T.

The first four figures of each group will give the barometer reduced to 32° F., sea level, and gravity at 45°. The fifth and sixth figures the tempera- ture of the air in degrees Fahrenheit, the seventh and eighth the temperature of evaporation, the ninth and tenth the direction of the wind (00= North; 04 East; 08-South; 12 West) the eleventh the force of the wind on the Beaufort scale, 9 meaning 9 or above. The twelfth the weather according to the following code:--

1= fine; blue sky or detached clouds. 2=cloudy or overcast.

3 = Rain.

4 = fog.

5 thunderstorm. Z-no observation.

Red Cross and kindred services will only be regarded as valuable" for the purposes of these Regulations when they have been rendered in a war in which the Empire has itself been engaged, and when the Decoration for the wearing of which permission is sought has been conferred by an Allied State.

  4. Restricted permission is particularly contemplated for Decorations which have been conferred in recognition of personal attention to the Head of a Foreign State, and which are therefore of a more or less complimentary character, but will also be granted for Decorations conferred on other exceptional occasions when in the public interest it is deemed expedient that they should be accepted.

5. Restricted perinission will generally be given for Decorations conferred in the following cases, but, as indicated in the preceding paragraph, will not necessarily be limited to these cases:

(1.) On British Ambassadors or Ministers abroad when the King pays a State

visit to the country to which they are accredited;

(

(Note.-A State visit is defined as one on which the King is accom-

panied by a Minister or High Official in attendance.)

(2.) On Members of Deputations of British Regiments to Foreign Heads of

States;

(3.) On Members of Special Missions when the King is represented at a Foreign Coronation, Wedding, Funeral, or similar occasion; or on any Diplomatic Representative when specially accredited to represent His Majesty on such occasions.

Restricted permission will not be given to-

(a.) British Ambassadors or Ministers abroad when leaving;

(b.) British Officers attending Foreign Manoeuvres ;

(c.) Naval Officers of British Squadrons visiting Foreign Waters.

6. The desire of the Head of a Foreign State to confer upon a British subject in the Service of the Crown the Insignia of an Order must be notified to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs either through the British Diplomatic Representative accredited to the Head of the Foreign State, or through his Diplomatic Representative at the Court of St. James.

7. When His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs shall have taken the King's pleasure on any such application, and shall have obtained His Majesty's permission for the person in whose favour it has been made to wear the Insignia of a Foreign Order, he shall signify the same to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department, in order that he may cause a Warrant, if it be a case for the issue of a Warrant as defined in Rule 2, to be prepared for the Royal Sign-Manual.

When such Warrant shall have been signed by the King, a notification thereof shall be inserted in the "Gazette," stating the service for which the Foreign Order has been conferred.

Persons in whose favour such Warrants are issued will be required to pay to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department a stamp duty of 10s.

8. The Warrant signifying His Majesty's permission may, at the request and at the expense of the person who has obtained it, be registered in the College of Arms. Every such Warrant as aforesaid shall contain a clause providing that His Majesty's licence and permission does not authorise the assumption of any style, appellation, rank, prece- dence, or privilege appertaining to a Knight Bachelor of His Majesty's Realms.

9. A British subject in the Service of the Crown who has received the Royal per- mission, full or restricted, to accept and wear the Decoration of a Foreign Order, will, on application, receive permission to accept and wear the Decoration of a higher class of the same Order.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, AUGUST 27, 1926.

393

3. The full and unrestricted permission by Warrant under the Royal Sign-Manual is designed to meet cases in which the Decoration has been earned by valuable-service rendered to the Head of the State conferring it, or to the State itself. Such service must have been both of manifest and substantial value to the Head of the State or State concerned and not inconsistent with British interests; and must have been rendered within the period of five years immediately preceding the notification of the Decoration to His Majesty's Government as prescribed under Rule 5.

  4. Restricted permission is particularly contemplated for Decorations which have been conferred in recognition of personal attention to the Head of a Foreign State and which are therefore of a more or less complimentary character, but will also be granted for Decorations conferred on other exceptional occasions, when in the public interest it is deemed expedient that they should be accepted.

  5. Both in the case of full and of restricted permission the matter will be submitted to the King by His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, who shall be under no obligation to consider applications for permission unless the desire of the Head of a Foreign State to confer upon a British subject the Insignia of an Order is notified to him before the Order is conferred, either through the British Diplomatic Representative accredited to the Head of the Foreign State, or through the Diplomatic Representative of the latter at the Court of St. James.

6. When His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs shall have taken the King's pleasure on any such application, and shall have obtained His Majesty's permission for the person in whose favour it has been made to wear the Insignia of a Foreign Order. he shall signify the same to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department, in order that he may cause a Warrant, if it be a case for the issue of a Warrant as defined in Rule 2, to be prepared for the Royal Sign-Manual.

  When such Warrant shall have been signed by the King, a notification thereof shall be inserted in the Gazette, stating the service for which the Foreign Order has been conferred.

Persons in whose favour such Warrants are issued will be required to pay to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Home Department a stamp duty of 10s.

7. The Warrant signifying His Majesty's permission may, at the request and at the expense of the person who has obtained it, be registered in the College of Arms. Every such Warrant as aforesaid shall contain a clause providing that His Majesty's licence and permission does not authorise the assumption of any style, appellation, rank, pre- cedence, or privilege appertaining to a Knight Bachelor of His Majesty's Realms.

8. A British subject who has received the Royal permission, full or restricted, to accept and wear the Decoration of a Foreign Order, will, on application, receive permis- sion to accept the Decoration of a higher class of the same Order.

9. These Regulations apply only to Orders of Chivalry. Decorations conferred by Private Societies and Decorations of a purely academic nature, and all Decorations not being Orders of Chivalry, may be accepted without His Majesty's permission, but must not be worn.

Exception is made in the case of a few Foreign Orders, which, though not in strict- ness Orders of Chivalry, yet are of such a high distinction that, for the purpose of these Regulations, they are to be considered and treated as Orders of Chivalry.

Medals.

 10. Medals, with the exceptions specified below, are subject to the Regulations in the same manner as Orders, but permission to wear is given by Letter and not by Royal Warrant. No permission is needed to accept a Foreign Medal if it is not to be worn.
