ARTICLE 10.

     A criminal fugitive may also be arrested before the requisition for his surrender is made, under a warrant or other judicial document of like nature issued by a competent judicial authority in either State, on such information or complaint and such evidence, or after such proceedings, as would justify the issue of a warrant, or other judicial docu- ment of like nature if the crime or offence had been committed or the person convicted in that part of the territory of the two Contracting Parties in which the competent judi- cial authority exercises jurisdiction.

Notice of the date of his arrest shall be given forthwith to the diplomatic agent of the party claiming extradition.

fugitive shall be set at liberty in so far as the laws of the State where the person claimed has been arrested do not oppose.

ARTICLE 15.

All articles seized which were in the possession of the person to be surrendered at the time of his arrest, and any articles that may serve as a proof of the crime or offence, shall be given up, if possible when the extradition takes place.

6. Where the Judicial Committee agree to advise His Majesty to grant special leave to appeal, they shall, in their Report, specify the amount of the security for costs (if any) to be lodged by the Petitioner, and shall, unless the circumstances of a particular case render such a course unnecessary, provide for the transmission of the Record by the Registrar to the Registrar of the Privy Council and for such further matters as the justice of the case may require. Unless otherwise ordered the security shall be lodged at any time before the Appellant enters an Appearance.

7. Save as by the four last preceding Rules otherwise provided, the provisions of Rules 47 to 50 and 52 to 59 (all inclusive) hereinafter contained shall apply mutatis mutandis to Petitions for special leave to appeal.

8. Rules 3 to 7 (both inclusive) shall apply mutatis mutandis to Peti- tions for leave to appeal in formâ pauperis, but in addition to the Affidavits referred to in Rule 4 every such Petition shall be accompanied by an Affidavit from the Petitioner stating that he is not worth £25 in the world excepting his wearing apparel and his interest in the subject-matter of the intended Appeal, and that he is unable to provide sureties, and also by a certificate of Counsel that the Petitioner has reasonable ground of appeal.

9. Where a Petitioner obtains leave to appeal in formâ pauperis, he shall not be required to lodge security for the costs of the Respondent or to pay any Council Office fees.

10. A Petitioner whose Petition for leave to appeal in formâ pauperis is dismissed may, notwithstanding such dismissal, be excused from paying the Council Office fees usually chargeable to a Petitioner in respect of a Petition for leave to appeal, if His Majesty in Council, on the advice of the Judicial Committee, shall think fit so to order.

Record and Appearance by Appellant.

11. As soon as the Appeal has been admitted, whether by an Order of the Court appealed from or by an Order of His Majesty in Council granting special leave to appeal, the Appellant shall without delay take all necessary steps to have the Record transmitted to the Registrar of the Privy Council, and the Registrar shall, with all convenient speed, certify to the Registrar of the Privy Council that the Respondent has received notice, or is otherwise aware, of the Order of the Court appealed from admitting the Appeal, or of the Order of His Majesty in Council giving the Appellant special leave to appeal, and has also received notice, or is otherwise aware, of the dispatch of the Record to England. Where an Appellant who has obtained special leave to appeal by an Order of His Majesty in Council fails to have the Record transmitted to the Registrar of the Privy Council with due diligence, the Registrar of the Privy Council shall call upon the Appellant to explain his default, and if no explanation is offered, or if the explanation offered is, in the opinion of the said Registrar insufficient, the said Registrar may issue a Summons to the Appellant calling upon him to show cause before the Judicial Committee at the time to be named in the said Summons why the special leave to appeal granted should not be rescinded. The Respondent shall be entitled to be heard before the Judicial Committee in the matter of the said Summons and to ask for his costs and such other relief as he may be advised. The Judicial Committee may, after considering the matter of the said Sum- mons, recommend to His Majesty to rescind the grant of special leave to appeal or give such other directions therein as the justice of the case may require.

12. The Record shall be printed in accordance with the Rules contained in Schedule A hereto. It may be printed either abroad or in England. When printed abroad the parties in England shall, upon perusal, consider whether the order of the documents is in accordance with these Rules, and if it is not, they shall agree upon the proper order. The Appellant shall then

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, APRIL 8, 1927.

rearrange copies of the Record for the use of the Judicial Committee and the other parties. In the event of the parties being unable to agree, the matter shall be referred to the Registrar of the Privy Council who, if he thinks fit, may require the parties to attend before the Judicial Committee for directions.

13. Where the Record is printed abroad, the Registrar shall, at the ex- pense of the Appellant, transmit to the Registrar of the Privy Council 40 copies of such Record, one of which copies he shall certify to be correct by signing his name on, or initialling, every eighth page thereof and by affixing thereto the seal, if any, of the Court appealed from:

14. Where the Record is to be printed in England, the Registrar shall, at the expense of the Appellant, transmit to the Registrar of the Privy Council one certified copy of such Record, together with an index of all the papers and exhibits in the case. No other certified copies of the Record shall be transmitted to the Agent in England by or on behalf of the parties to the Appeal.

15. Where part of the Record is printed abroad and part is to be printed in England, Rules 13 and 14 shall, as far as practicable, apply to such parts as are printed abroad and such as are to be printed in England respectively.

16. The reasons given by the judge, or any of the judges, for or against any judgments pronounced in the course of the proceedings out of which the Appeal arises, shall by such judge or judges be communicated in writing to the Registrar and shall be included in the Record.

17. The Registrar, as well as the parties and their Agents, shall endeavour to exclude from the Record all documents (more particularly such as are merely formal) that are not relevant to the subject-matter of the Appeal, and, generally, to reduce the bulk of the Record as far as practicable, taking special care to avoid the duplication of documents and the unnecessary repetition of headings and other merely formal parts of documents; but the documents omitted to be printed or copied shall be enumerated in a type- written list to be transmitted with the Record.

18. Where in the course of the preparation of a Record one party objects to the inclusion of a document on the ground that it is unnecessary or irrelevant, and the other party nevertheless insists upon its being included, the Record, as finally printed (whether abroad or in England), shall, with a view to the subsequent adjustment of the costs of and incidental to such document, indicate, in the index of papers, or otherwise, the fact that, and the party by whom, the.inclusion of the document was objected to.

19. As soon as the Record is received in the Registry of the Privy Council, it shall be registered in the said Registry, with the date of arrival, the names of the parties, and the description whether "printed" or "written." A Record, or any part of a Record, not printed in accordance with the Rules contained in Schedule A hereto shall be treated as written. Appeals shall be numbered consecutively in each year in the order in which the Record are received in the said Registry.

20. The parties shall be entitled to inspect the Record and to extract all necessary particulars therefrom for the purpose of entering an Appearance.

21. The Appellant shall enter an Appearance before taking any step in the prosecution of the Appeal, and after entering such Appearance, shall forthwith give notice thereof to the Respondent, if the latter has entered an Appearance.

22. Where the Record arrives in England either wholly written, or partly written and partly printed, the Appellant shall, within a period of four months from the date of such arrival in the case of Appeals from Courts situate in any of the countries or places named in Schedule B hereto, and

Rules as to Printing.

137

I. All Records and other proceedings in Appeals or other matters pending before His Majesty in Council or the Judicial Committee which are required by the above Rules to be printed shall be printed in the form known as Demy Quarto.

II. The size of the

inches in height and 8

paper used shall be such that the sheet, when folded and trimmed, will be 11 inches in width.

III. The type to be used in the text shall be Pica type, but Long Primer shall be used in printing accounts, tabular matter, and notes. The number of lines in each page of Pica type shall be 47 or thereabouts, and every tenth line shall be numbered in the margin.

IV. Records shall be arranged in two parts in the same volume, where practicable, viz. :-

Part I. The pleadings and proceedings, the transcript of the evidence of the witnesses, the

Judgments, Decrees, &c., of the Courts below, down to the Order admitting, the Appeal. Part II. The exhibits and documents.

V. The Index to Part I shall be in chronological order, and shall be placed at the beginning of the volume.

The Index to Part II shall follow the order of the exhibit mark, and shall be placed immediately after the Index to Part I.

VI. Part I shall be arranged strictly in chronological order, i.e., in the same order as the index.

Part II shall be arranged in the most convenient way for the use of the Judicial Committee, as the circumstances of the case require. The documents shall be printed as far as suitable in chronological order, mixing Plaintiff's and Defendant's documents together when necessary. Each document shall show its exhibit mark, and whether it is a Plaintiff's or Defendant's document (unless this is clear from the exhibit mark) and in all cases documents relating to the same matter, such as

(a) a series of correspondence, or

(b) proceedings in a suit other than the one under appeal,

shall be kept together. The order in the Record of the documents in Part II will probably be different from the order of the Index, and the proper page number of each document shall be inserted in the printed Index.

 The parties will be responsible for arranging Record in proper order for the Judicial Committee, and in difficult cases Counsel may be asked to settle it.

VII. The documents in Part I shall be numbered consecutively.

The documents in Part II shall not be numbered, apart from the exhibit mark.

 VIII. Each document shall have a heading which shall consist of the number or exhibit mark and the description of the document in the Index, without the date.

 IX. Each document shall have a marginal note which shall be repeated on each page over which the document extends, rit. :-

 (7) The marginal note of the document shall then appear consisting of the number and the descrip- tion of the document in the Index, with the date, except in the case of oral evidence.

(c) In the case of oral evidence, "Plaintiff's evidence" or "Defendant's evidence" shall appear beneath the name of the Court, and then the marginal note consisting of the number in the Iudex and be. re-examinatioa," as the case may the witness's na:ne, with "examination," cross-examination," or

    X. The parties shall agree to the omission of formal and irrelevant documents, but the description of the document may appear (both in the Index and in the Record), if desired, with the words "not printed" against it.

    A long series of documents, such as accounts, rent rolls, inventories, &c., shall not be printed in full, unless Counsel so advise, but the parties shall agree to short extracts being printed as specimens.

     XI. In cases where maps sent from abroad are of an inconvenient size or unsuitable in character, the Appellant shall, in agreement with the Respondent, prepare in England, from the materials sent from abroad, maps drawn properly to scale and of reasonable size, showing, as far as possible, the claims of the respective parties, in different colours.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, APRIL 14, 1927.

   The object of the code is to give at least 24 hours warning of a gale (Force 8 by Beaufort Scale, or 40-45 m.p.h., mean velocity by Dines Anemometer) and also warnings of expected changes in the direction and force of the wind. Owing however to the uncertain movements of typhoons and to insufficient telegraphic observations, it will occasionally happen that signals 2 to 5 may be displayed without a gale occurring at Hong Kong, or even Gap Rock, but the reverse is not likely to happen, except in the case of typhoons forming in the vicinity and travelling rapidly towards Hong Kong, or should the direction of motion of a located typhoon alter, or its rate of progression increase, abnor- mally.

   Signal No. 1 is intended as a warning to "Stand By" and watch for the next signal. When it is hoisted after a black signal has been displayed it will mean that, on account of a change in the track of the typhoon, or for some other reason, a gale is no longer expected from the direction indi- cated by the last signal, and that another black signal may possibly bé hoisted later.

No. 284. The following is published for general information.

By a notice published in the London Gazette on the 15th February, 1927, the Arbitrator appointed under Clause 4 of the Annex to Section IV. of Part X. of the Treaty of Versailles to assess the amount of claims by British nationals growing out of acts committed by the German Government, or by any German Authorities, since 31st July, 1914, and before the 4th August, 1914, has prescribed that, in the case of claimants resident in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, all such claims must be lodged with him at 2, Cavendish Square, London, W.1, before the expiration of two months from the date of the publication of the notice, i.e., 15th February, 1927.

In the case of British nationals resident in Hong Kong the period of two months from the date of publication of the notice is extended to 30th June, 1927.

   All claimants who have claims of this nature should submit their claims to the Arbitrator in triplicate. The claims should be lodged by the claimants themselves, or by their solicitors, or other duly authorised Agents, acting for them on their behalf.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 13, 1927.

    No. 285.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 3rd, 4th, and 5th day of May, 1927, to enquire into the circumstances attending the collision between the British Steamship Anjou and the British Steamship Wing On, is published for general information.

FINDING.

We find that on the evening of April 20th, 1927, the S.S. Wing On of Hong Kong Official No. 133251 of which C. Mutton, number of whose Certificate of Competency is No. 034605 was master and S.S. Anjou of Hong Kong Official No. 135104 of which J. Webster, number of whose Certificate of Competency is No. 043964 was master, were anchored off Wang Mun Creek, the vessel being, Wing On about 1 cable from the South Bank with the Anjou about or of a cable on her Starboard beam. At about 8.30 p.m. both vessels got under way, the Wing On slightly ahead of the Anjou. The Wing On proceeded to pass ahead of the Anjou under port helm. Meanwhile the Anjou started to turn to the South under engines and helm at about the time when the Wing On was across her bows. Wing On turning under helm approached the North Bank and it is our opinion that the Master of the Wing On underestimated his distance from this bank and endeavoured to turn sharply. The wind from the N.E. took hold of his bow and gave him a heavier swing than he was aware of. This swing he attempted to correct with his engines and caused him to assume that the Anjou was making sternway towards him. By this time Anjou had completed her turn to the East and was struck by the bows of the Wing On on the stern in the fore and aft line. Having examined the stern of the Anjou we have come to the conclusion that it was an end on blow and that the Anjou had headway on at the time of impact. We are of opinion that the Master of the Wing On was in error in that he being the overtaking ship came into collision with the stern of the ship ahead but we do not consider that this in any way exempts the master of the Anjou from blame in that observing the Wing On extremely close to his stern he took absolutely no precautions to avoid collision as he might have done by putting both his engines to full speed ahead. We therefore adjudge both Captain Mutton and Captain Webster to be censured. We are astounded at the manner in which the Master and Chief Engineer Mr. J. W. McNaught of the S.S. Anjou appeared to regard their respective duties. They appeared to be passengers in the ship and to take no interest whatever in their respective responsibilities. We therefore adjudge them both to be most severely reprimanded.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hong Kong, this 5th day of May, 1927.

The Governor of the State of Victoria, in the Commonwealth of Australia, being satisfied that reciprocal provisions have been made by the Legislature of Hong Kong (the same being a part of His Majesty's Dominions outside the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth of Australia) for the enforcement within such part of judgments as defined by section 2 of the Supreme Court Act 1923, so far as the same relate to Victorian judgments, orders, and awards, do now, under the powers conferred by section 3 of the Judgments (Reciprocity) Act 1925, by and with the advice of the Executive Council, declare Hong Kong to be a reciprocating State for the purpose of the Judgments (Reciprocity) Acts, and that the said Acts shall extend and apply to all parts of Hong Kong.

No. 321.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 18th and 19th day of May, 1927, to enquire into the circumstances attending the collision between the British Steamship Moonshine and the Chinese Steamship Leung. Kwong, is published for general information.

27th May, 1927.

W. T. SOUTHORN,

Colonial Secretary.

FINDING.

We find that the Moonshine a British ship of 33 tons nett of which Li Hung is the Coxswain was at the Northern Entrance of the Kap Sing Mun Pass proceeding from Liu Tin to Hong Kong at about 7.30 p.m. on 9th May, 1927. Her speed was about 6 knots.

    At the same time the Leung Kwong a passenger steamer of 398 tons nett under the Chinese flag was at the Southern Entrance to the Pass bound for Wangmun at a speed of about 8 knots. Her Master was James Wilson who holds a British Certificate of Com- petency as Master.

    The Leung Kwong passed close round Kap Sing Island and altered course across the Pass towards it's Western Shore, having signalled her intention of doing so by sounding 2 blasts.

    The Moonshine simultaneously proceeded along the Western side of the Channel and the vessels collided. The Leung Kwong was struck on the starboard bow by the stern of the Moonshine and sank in less than ten minutes.

    Prior to the sinking of the Leung Kwong the Moonshine proceeded alongside her and embarked a large number of the passengers and crew.

The collision occurred close to the Western shore of the Pass.

The S.S. On Lee and the S.S. Kwong Fook Cheong who were in the vicinity were instrumental in saving a large number of lives.

    The Court finds that the Moonshine was navigated in a proper manner and that no blame is attributable to the Coxswain of the ship.

    Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hong Kong, this 19th day of May, 1927.

SIR,-I have the honour to inform you that, in a number of recent cases of pension claims by British subjects resident outside the United States, documents forwarded to His Majesty's Embassy at Washington for submission to the United States authorities as evidence in support of the claims have not been authenticated and that considerable delay in reaching a settlement has been occasioned by the necessity of returning them. for completion.

2. His Majesty's Ambassador at Washington has pointed out that mere declarations or sworn statements made before a Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths, without a certificate from a public authority as to his competence, cannot be legalised at His Majesty's Embassy at Washington, and are not accepted as valid evidence by the United States pension authorities.

    I shall be glad therefore if, in cases where documents are intended for submission. to the United States Government in connection with pension and kindred claims, they may be properly authenticated before being sent to His Majesty's Embassy.

307

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.

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.

ARTICLE 11.

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 authen- ticated 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 certi- fied, 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.

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 authentication for the time being permitted by the law of the State to which the application for extradition is made.

ARTICLE 14.

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.

    Requisitions for the surrender of a fugitive criminal emanating from any self-govern- ing Dominion, Colony, or Possession of His Britannic Majesty shall be governed, as far as possible, by the rules laid down in the preceding articles of the present treaty..

ARTICLE 16.

EXECUTIVE ORDER.

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED OF BONA FIDE ALIEN SEAMEN ENTERING THE

UNITED STATES AS PASSENGERS.

By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Act of Congress approved May 22, 1918, as extended by the Act of Congress of March 2, 1921, I hereby prescribe the following regulations governing the entry of seamen as passengers :-

(I) Alien seamen whose occupational status as such is found to be bona fide enter- ing the ports of the United States solely in the pursuit of their calling as seamen may be admitted temporarily in the discretion of the Secretary of Labor and under regulations prescribed by him without passports or visas if arriving in the United States under the following circumstances : ‹

1. As seamen who were members of the crew of an American vessel, which has been sold and delivered abroad, when the contract of employment provides for the return of the crew or the laws of the United States provide for their return to an American port;

2. As individual seamen returned to the United States in accordance

with the terms of the articles of the outward voyage;

3. As shipwrecked or castaway seamen rescued by or transferred to a

vessel bound to an American port;

4. As alien (American) seamen who are consular passengers, or are repatriated without expense to the United States Government follow- ing and in accordance with the terms of their discharge in a foreign port before an American consular officer, but who, for any reason, can not be considered as serving as seamen on the vessel on which they arrive at an American port.

(II) If such alien seamen arrive at a port in the United States as members of a crew sent forward by the owners to take delivery of a vessel in such port and for the purpose of navigating such vessel to its foreign home port, they may present a group transit certificate issued by a consular officer in accord- ance with Section 3 (3) of the Immigration Act of 1924 under such regula- tions as the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Labor may prescribe.

:

384

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 16, 1927.

QUESTIONS.

6. The Hon. Mr. D. G. M. BERNARD, pursuant to notice, asked:-

Will the Government cause an enquiry to be held into

(a) the circumstances connected with the shooting. of dogs at Jardine's Corner, Peak, on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, the 23rd and 24th July, having due regard to the people using the roads and the necessity or otherwise of such drastic action;

(b) the method of enforcing the muzzling regulations and make

recommendations for the future?

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:-

(a) The Government has caused full enquiries to be made into the occur- rences referred to in the first part of the Honourable Member's question. The shooting near Jardine's Corner was carried out by experienced Police Officers as the result of a complaint from a Peak resident of the danger to children from the presence of so many unmuzzled dogs in that neighbourhood, and the Government much regrets that by an error of judgment the shooting took place in the presence of children and that one child received a slight scratch apparently from a ricochet or a piece of stone. Orders have been issued that every possible care is to be taken to avoid the shooting of dogs in the presence of children, but it is obvious that the presence of spectators cannot always be avoided. The Government much regrets the necessity for undertaking the unpleasant duty of shooting dogs, but this necessity is forced upon it by the whole- sale disregard of the law by dog-owners in this Colony. Among these law-breakers are to be numbered many Peak residents. It must be within the knowledge of all Honourable Members that, even since the occurrence referred to, dog-owners on the Peak and elsewhere still per- mit their dogs to roam about unmuzzled. As to the necessity for drastic action on the Peak as well as elsewhere it does not seem necessary to add anything to the bare statement of the fact that no less than 20 dogs from the Peak have been reported to the Police as having bitten people since the 1st January, 1926, that there were 184 reported cases of persons being bitten by dogs in Hong Kong Island since that date, 11 reported cases of rabies and 11 reported cases of hydrophobia. The risk of the terrible disease of hydrophobia arising from the presence of unmuzzled dogs in a Colony infected with rabies appears to be quite inadequately appreciated.

(b) With regard to the second part of the Honourable Member's question the Muzzling Regulations will be enforced by prosecution of owners, capture of dogs when this is practicable and can be effected without undue risk of danger to the Public Servants employed, and by shooting. As regards the future, the Government is determined that dog-owners shall not, by their disregard of the law, imperil the lives of others and proposes, after this public warning, to give orders for the most rigorous enforcement of the law with a view to the extermination here, as in other law-abiding countries, of the scourge of rabies and the danger of hydrophobia.
