AT THE COURT AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE,

THE 20TH DAY OF NOVEMBER, 1928.

PRESENT:

THE KING'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY IN COUNCIL.

HEREAS on the 20th day of January, 1914, an International Convention for the safety of Life at Sea, and for purposes incidental thereto, was duly entered into by His Majesty and the other Signatory Powers more especially referred to and set out in the said Convention:

""

And whereas a Statute 4 & 5 Geo. V. c. 50, intituled "An Act to make such amend- 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:

66

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 20th day of December, 1927, until the 1st day of January, 1929:

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 pursu- ance of the powers vested in Him by the above-recited provision and all other powers Him thereunto enabling, doth order, and it is hereby ordered, that the provisions of the Merchant Shipping (Convention) Act, 1914, shall be postponed from coming into opera- tion until the 1st day of January, 1930.

SUPPLEMENTARY RULES.

    1. As regards the locality in which it is desired to hunt as specified in Regulation No. 2 of the Kwangtung Provisional Hunting Regulations, hunters must state clearly the district (hsien) or municipality (shih) in which the place in which they wish to hunt lies.

Po On District Notice No. 48 issued by Cheng Kai Tsʼung, Magistrate, and dated 30th October, 1928.

"Under good local Government, a territory is free from locusts, and among a virtuous people, birds prey not on other birds' nests."

In the season when autumn changes to winter, sportsmen go to the hills to shoot game, solely for their own ends-a cruel, wanton slaughter which offends the laws of Heaven. More than this, the woods are often fired to destroy the lurking-places of birds and beasts, driving them out. This practice is as vicious as drying up the sea to catch fish. It renders the hillside barren and unfit for grass cutting, depriving the poor of a means of livelihood, and it will be rigidly put down. Take note that offenders will be punished without discrimination.

TREASURY.

   No. 4.-It is hereby notified for the information of Owners and Occupiers of tenements that, under the provisions of the Rating Ordinance, 1901, Crdinance No. 6 of 1901, Rates for the First Quarter of 1929, are payable in advance on or before the 31st January, 1929.

If any person shall fail to pay such Rates on or before the 28th February, 1929, proceedings will be taken in the Supreme Court for their recovery without further notice.

No refund of Rates in respect of vacant tenements will be granted unless such Rates have been paid during and within the month of January, 1929, nor unless application is made for such refund within fifteen days from the expiration of the Quarter.

Milner Memorial Schlarships.

Five Miluer Memorial Scholarships have recently been founded at the King's School, Canterbury, under a Trust Deed, out of funds collected by the Lord Milner Memorial Committee, to perpetuate the memory of the work done for the British Empire by the late Lord Milner. Their value is £100 a year for five years, and one Scholarship will be awarded each year. Candidates must be over 13 and under 14 years of age on 24th June. These Scholarships are open to "boys of British parentage and European des-

cent

(i) whose fathers are or have been members of the permanent establishment of the Civil Service in India, the Colonies not possessing responsible Govern- ment, Protectorates, or the territories administered under mandate by His Majesty's Government in Great Britain, or in Iraq, Egypt, or the Anglo- Egyptian Sudan; or

(ii) whose fathers not being or having been members of the permanent establish- ment nevertheless have been continuously employed in any such service for a period of not less than ten years; or

whose parents or surviving parent reside in some part of the British Empire where facilities for Secondary Education are for the time being insufficient or inadequate ".

In awarding these Scholarships account will be taken of :-

(a) intellectual ability as decided by a brief written examination;

(b) character;

(c) the financial circumstances of the parent or guardian.

The names of candidates for the Scholarship to be awarded in 1929 must reach the Headmaster, the King's School, by 1st May, 1929, at the latest, with a letter stating fully the grounds on which the candidate claims to be eligible for the Scholarship. Applica- tions must be accompanied by a copy of the boy's birth certificate, and a full testimonial as to his character, ability at work or games, capacity for leadership, &c., from his pre- sent or most recent schoolmaster or tutor. It must also be accompanied by a statement as to the financial circumstances of the parent or guardian on a special form which may be obtained from the Headmaster. This information will be treated as strictly confiden- tial.

Boys who are being educated in England will be expected to come to Canterbury for the written examination on 26th June. Boys who are being educated overseas will sit for the examination on the same date under regulations to be male by their local education authority, to whom copies of the paper will be sent, and who will return the answers to England for correction and comparison. Applications on behalf of candi- dates overseas must be accompanied by the name and address of the local education authority to whom papers are to be sent.

Objects and Reasons.

1. This Ordinance will effect certain amendments in the Tobacco Ordinance, 1916, which are recommended by the Superintendent of Imports and Exports.

2. The main object of this Ordinance is to adopt in the case of tobacco manufactured in Hong Kong the prin- ciple of taxation at the source. It is on this principle that the duty is collected in Great Britain on tobacco manufactured there. Henceforward, therefore, tobacco will no longer be manufactured in bond but there will be a flat rate on the imported raw leaf used in manufacture. The same rule of a flat rate is intro- duced in the case of all manufactured tobacco imported, in place of the present system of division into numerous classes according to value for the purposes of taxation.

3. It has proved, in practice, impossible to control adequately the numerous factories, many of them working on a small scale, which receive raw leaf and pay duty only on such of their manufactured products as they declare for local consumption.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 13, 1929. 63

4. It has also proved extremely difficult to assign to their proper classes the numerous brands of cigars and cigarettes which are now on the market here.

5. There is also the problem of the cigarette deliber- ately sold at a loss in order to kill competition or to establish a new brand.

6. There are also frequent alterations in the quality of the goods sold, without a corresponding alteration in the price.

7. Once the manufacturer has to pay duty on his raw material as soon as he imports it or draws it from bond, a system of paying drawbacks on such of his product as he exports must be concurrently intro- duced, and this will be done by regulations made under section 3 (1) (5) of the principal Ordinance as amended by clause 3 of this Ordinance.

8. The amount of drawback to be returned on export is calculated on the average amount of raw material which has been consumed in making the various kinds of manufactured tobacco.

9. Opportunity has also been taken to alter soine parts of the original Ordinance, where experience has proved that the existing wording was not sufficiently clear, or required amendment.

10. Clause 3 of this Ordinance amends section 3 (1) (6) of the principal Ordinance by substituting the word "drawback for the word "rebates", because the former is the term commonly used.

11. Clause 4 makes it incumbent upon an exporter claiming a drawback on exported tobacco to sign a declaration to the effect that the tobacco in respect of which drawback is being claimed has been actually shipped for export and is not intended to be relanded in the Colony, and stating the name of the person who, upon exportation will be entitled to receive the draw- back thereon.

12. Clause 5, which is based upon section 15 of the English Act 3 & 4 Vict. c. 18, imposes penalties for fraudulently attempting to obtain drawbacks. It also provides for the recovery of sums forfeited.

13. Clause 6 of this Ordinance amends section 2 of the principal Ordinance as follows:---

(i) by the insertion of a new definition of "duti- able tobacco" in section 2 (a) so as to make it clear that tobacco, as defined by paragraph (n), if re-imported, must pay duty again. (ii) by an alteration in sub-section (e) thereof which simplifies the definition of the word "export".

It is no

14. Clause 7 of this Ordinance, which amends section 6 of the principal Ordinance, introduces the new system of duty and new scale of duties. part policy of this Ordinance to increase the rate of duty on tobacco generally, though of course the in- troduction of the new system necessarily involves individual variations of duty. The proposed new section 6 (2) is a temporary provision dealing with the tobacco present at the commencement of the Ordinance on the licensed premises of the holders of manu- facturer's licences. At present the duty on such tobacco is not payable until removal from the licensed premises, but under the new system duty is payable

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 13, 1929.

on the importation of the.raw leaf and manufacture in bond will be no longer possible. The Superintendent is therefore given authority to estimate the amount of tobacco on any manufacturer's licensed premises at the commencement of the Ordinance, and to classify it as unmanufactured tobacco or as manufactured tobacco. In the case of such manufactured tobacco he will also estimate the weight of unmanufactured tobacco from which the manufactured tobacco was produced, and the duty will be payable on the weight so estimated. Paragraph (a) of sub-section 3 of section 6 of the principal Ordinance is repealed because exported tobacco will no longer be ex- empt from duty but will instead be entitled to a drawback. Through tobacco is not made absolutely exempt from duty as it might be, but if it is duly handled in accordance with the principal Ordinance the effect of section 11 of that Ordinance will be that the duty will never become payable. Sub-section (4) of section 6 of the principal Ordinance is repealed because it provided for the rate of duty to be paid on tobacco manufactured in the Colony in bond.

15. Clause 8 of this Ordinance is intended to im- prove the form of section 7 of the principal Ordinance. It also deals with the time of coming into operation of any resolution of Legislative Council passed under that section.

16. Clause 9 of this Ordinance repeals section 8 of the principal Ordinance as having been now rendered unnecessary by the provisions of Ordinance No. 9 of 1927 whereby the Governor has power conferred upon him to impose or alter duties, etc., in anticipation either of the passing of a bill or of a resolution of the Legislative Council.

""

17. Clause 10 of this Ordinance substitutes "time for "day" throughout section 10 of the principal Ordinance, so as to correspond with the "time" pro- visions of Ordinance No. 9 of 1927 section 4 (1), and of the new section 7 of the principal Ordinance, which have been above referred to.

18. Clause 11 of this Ordinance amends section 11 (b) of the principai Ordinance by making provision for tobacco being removed from one bonded warehouse to another. It also repeals section 11 (2) of the prin- cipal Ordinance which is incompatible with the new system of duties as explained above.

19. Clauses 12, 13 and 14 of this Ordinance eliminate the word "dutiable" from sections 17, 18, 21 and 22 of the principal Ordinance as being unnecessary. Clause 13 also corrects an error in section 18 (1) of the principal Ordinance by substituting "bonded for "licensed" in the last line of that sub-section.

""

20. Clause 15 of this Ordinance effects certain verbal amendments in section 24 of the principal Ordinance, which are intended to make the meaning of that section more definite and clear.

21. Clause 16 relieves the Governor in Council of certain functions which it is thought can be dealt with more appropriately by the Superintendent of the department.

22. Clause 17 of this Ordinance repeals sub-section (2) of section 31 of the principal Ordinance as being incompatible with the new system of duties.

23. Clause 18 of this Ordinance deletes the word "dutiable" from section 38 (4) of the principal Ordi- nance as being an undesirable limitation on the powers of the Superintendent.

24. Clause 19 of this Ordinance substitutes a new and simplified section 50 in the place of the present section 50 of the principal Ordinance, "incorrect" being substituted for "false or inaccurate or mislead- ing".

25. Clause 20 of this Ordinance effects an amend- ment in section 53 of the principal Ordinance which is intended to enlarge the utility of the Analyst's certifi- cate as evidence at the hearing of any charge.

26. Clause 21 of this Ordinance assimilates the lan- guage of section 61 (1) of the principal Ordinance to that of section 5 (2) of this Ordinance.

QUESTIONS.

6. The Hon. Sir HENRY E. POLLOCK, Kt., K.C., pursuant to notice, asked the follow-

ing question:----

What action does the Government intend to take in connection with the

recommendations of the Coroner's Jury at the Hsin Wah Inquiry?

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:-

1. The present system of communications, by telephone, telegraph and wireless telegraphy with Waglan and other similar stations is under examination with a view to the more rapid and accurate transmission of messages.

2. So far as can be ascertained no other ships keeping W/T watch were in the immediate vicinity of the "Hsin Wah" at the time of the disaster, so that on this occasion broadcasting would have served no useful purpose. Government, however, agrees that in other cases broadcasting might be of great assistance to ships in distress and steps are being taken to ensure that news received of disasters, other than that broadcast by other shore stations or ships, will be broadcast in the future.

""

3. The Harbour Master has full authority to deal directly and promptly in such cases. On this occasion prompt action was taken in that as soon as the message was received stating that the "Hsin Wah was aground, arrangements were made immediately to send out the tug "Taikoo

Taikoo" to the ship's assistance.

4. Police launches are built specially for Police work and it is not considered expedient to alter their design to that of deep sea craft. The Officers in charge of these launches are competent in the handling of their launches.

5. It would be possible to keep the Rescue Tug "Kausing" continuously under steam at half an hour's notice but this would incur an additional expense of approximately $30,000 annually.

The "Hsin Wah", carrying W/T but not in working order, grounded on a clear night on an island on which there was a First Order Light burning brightly. A repetition of this disaster is so improbable that it is not considered that this extra recurrent expenditure would be justified.

7. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions :-

Will the Hon. the Colonial Treasurer state, under separate heads, the amount of revenue collected by the Treasury on account of stamp duties in con- nection with share transactions in respect of-

(i) Sharebrokers' memos. for cash transactions.

(ii) Sharebrokers' contract notes for forward transactions.

(iii) Instrument of Transfer for the following periods, viz. :-

(1) the year 1924,

(2) first and second half, respectively, of the year 1925,

(3) the year 1926,

(4) the year 1927,

(5) the year 1928, and separately for each mouth, from January

to April inclusive, of last year,

(6) January, 1929.

The Colonial Treasurer replied as follows:---

Separate answers cannot be given to (i) and (ii). No answer can be given to

(iii) as no separate record in respect of this item is kept.

For (i) and (ii) combined the figures are:-

(1) $160,302.

HEREAS by section 5 (4) of the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, power is conferred on the Governor in Council to declare that the said Ordinance shall apply to any drug of whatever kind in the same manner as it applies to the drugs men- tioned in section 5 (1) of the said Ordinance if it appears to the Governor in Council that the drug is or is likely to be productive, if improperly used, of ill effects substan- tially of the same character or nature as or analogous to those produced by morphine or cocaine :

And whereas it appears to the Governor in Council that the drugs benzoyl-mor- phine, dihydro-oxycodeinone, dihydrocodeinone and their respective salts, and any pre- parations containing benzoyl-morphine, dihydro-oxycodeinone, or dihydrocedeinone are productive, if improperly used, of ill effects substantially of the same character or nature as or analogous to those produced by morphine or cocaine :

Now, therefore, the Governor in Council, in pursuance of the powers conferred upon him by section 5 (4) of the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, hereby declares that the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, shall henceforth apply to the drugs benzoyl-mor- phine, dihydro-ozycodeinone, dihydrocodeinone and their respective salts and to any preparation, admixture and extract containing benzoyl-morphine, dihydro-oxycodeinone or dihydrocodeinone.

(2) The Health Committee of the League of Nations refer to dihydro-oxycodeinone as Encodal (dihydro-oxycodeinone), and to dihydrocodeinone as Dicodide (dihydro-codeinone).

(3) Regulation I of the regulations made under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, is as follows,-

1. These regulations shall, except where otherwise expressed, apply to all the drugs to which the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, from time to time for the time being applies.

Now, therefore, the Governor in Council, in pursuance of the powers conferred upon him by section 5 (4) of the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, hereby declares that the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, shall henceforth apply to the drugs benzoyl-mor- phine, dihydro-ozycodeinone, dihydrocodeinone and their respective salts and to any preparation, admixture and extract containing benzoyl-morphine, dihydro-oxycodeinone or dihydrocodeinone.

   NOTES: (1) The drug benzoyl-morphine, which is an ESTER of morphine, should not be con- fused with benzyl-morphine, an ETHER of morphine. The latter drug is occasionally used in medicine, being sold under the proprietary name of "Peronine".

(2) The Health Committee of the League of Nations refer to dihydro-oxycodeinone as Encodal (dihydro-oxycodeinone), and to dihydrocodeinone as Dicodide (dihydro-codeinone).

(3) Regulation I of the regulations made under the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, is as follows,-

1. These regulations shall, except where otherwise expressed, apply to all the drugs to which the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, 1923, from time to time for the time being applies.

QUESTIONS.

6. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions:-

(a) Will the Director of Public Works inform the Council whether in the Scheme of Town Planning for Kowloon any site, and where, has been earmarked for a recreation ground for the growing number of members of the Police Force stationed at Kowloon and of the subordinate staff in the service of the Government?

(b) If no such site has been marked out as yet, will the Government consider the advisability of forthwith making a suitable reservation of Crown land, both as regards area and location, for recreation purposes for the above-mentioned members of the Civil Service residing at Kowloon?

The Director of Public Works replied as follows:-

(a) Apart from the parade ground at the Police Training School no area has been specially earmarked as a recreation ground either for the Police Force or for the subordinate employees of Government residing at Kow- loon.

(b) The Town planning scheme for Kowloon makes provision for the reserva- tion of several areas for recreation grounds and Government proposes to develop these as and when funds can be made available. The Government has decided to appoint a Committee under Chairmanship of the Colonial Secretary to review the provision at present existing for playing fields in Hong Kong and on the mainland to consider what provision is required for the future and to make recommendation in the

matter.

7. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions:-

(a)Without implying any reflection on the personnel of the efficient and hardworking staff of the Fire Brigade, is the Government satisfied with the up-to-dateness and completeness of the appliances and equipment for life-saving in the event of another outbreak of fire like that of the King Edward Hotel in the small hours of the 11th March?

188

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 17, 1929.

(b) Are the rescue-ladders of a sufficient height to reach the top floor of the tallest building in the Colony when any inmates are entrapped therein. in the case of a fire?

(e) If not, will the Government take immediate steps to provide the Fire Department with a sufficiency of all appliances (including jumping- sheets) necessary so as to avert the recurrence of a disaster and to minimize, as far as practicable, the loss of lives such as happened in the King Edward Hotel fire?

(d) Will the Government cause an immediate inspection to be made of all the large buildings and offices in the Colony - e.g., China Building, Queen's, King's, Alexandra, and similar buildings, -to ascertain if-

(i) fire exits are provided on every floor therein;

(ii) there are indicators showing the way to the exits and lighted in

red by night, in the same manner as is done in theatres ;

(iii) that the passages along these exits are made easily accessible

and kept free from obstructions at all times?

(c) If no powers exist to compel the enforcement of the requirements stated in clauses (7), (77) and (777) of the foregoing question, will the Govern- ment frame and introduce early legislation with a view-

(i) to amend the Building Ordinance so as to invest the Building Authority with statutory powers enabling him to call upon the owners of buildings of the type mentioned in Question (d) to make adequate and ample provision for fire-escapes in such buildings, and to permit of their regular inspection by officers appointed by the Government;

to require that the main staircases of buildings designed for use as hostelries and groups of offices shall be built of fireproof material?

(f) Will the Government consider the advisability of compelling holders of Hotel Licences to fulfil the requirements set out in Question (d) and to instal automatic electric fire-alarms, or other mechanical contrivances for effectively raising alarms upon an outbreak of fire, in their premises?

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:--

(a) The Government is satisfied that the life-saving apparatus and equipment of the Hong Kong Fire Brigade are thoroughly up to date except the motor turntable ladder which is seven years old, and is 63 feet in height. It is to be remembered that this appliance is primarily a water-tower, to be used as such by members of the Fire Brigade, and can only occa- sionally be used for life-saving purposes, in circumstances requiring extreme care and considerable skill. The Government has taken note of the suggestion in the finding of the Jury at the Inquest into the fata- lities in the King Edward Hotel fire that an improved water-tower should be obtained and the matter is now under consideration. The cost is considerable and may amount to as much as $30,000 for one machine.

(b) No. The longest manual fire escape in Hong Kong is 55 feet in height, which is the largest made. The largest mechanical Fire Brigade ladder or water-tower manufactured so far as is known is only 88 feet in length and there are many buildings in the Colony with stories above this height. It is one of these water-towers which is referred to in the answer to the first part of the Honourable Member's question. (c) With the exception of the improved water-tower already referred to, the Fire Brigade has all the equipment recognised by the London Fire Brigade as life-saving apparatus. Certain other appliances such as rocket lines have been under careful consideration but are not considered to be of practical value.

(d), (e) and (f) Power of inspection of buildings by the Building Authority exists, but the necessary staff to make immediate inspections such as are suggested in the Honourable Member's question is not available. Inspections were actually made by Fire Brigade Officers of 982 buildings during 1928 and advice given. The more difficult questions are those

:

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 17, 1929.

189

of the policy of enforcing a more modern interpretation of section 149 of Ordinance No. 1 of 1903 in the case of buildings erected prior to the enactment of that section in 1903, and of the power to enforce such an interpretation in the case of buildings which have been certified as com- plying with Ordinance No. 1 of 1903. This subject has from time to time engaged the attention of the Government and it is now a matter for con- sideration whether the interests of the public should not outweigh the hardship to owners of property. In view of doubts as to the legal posi- tion fresh legislation would be necessary amending section 149 of the Public Health and Buildings Ordinance and enabling modern safety requirements to be made enforceable in the case of all buildings irres- pective of age and prior certificates. The Government is not yet satisfied. that drastic legislation of this kind is called for. It will be realized that the enforcement of such legislation would render necessary the recon- struction of much of the house property at present existing in Hong Kong.

Under the Law as it has existed since 1903, all buildings with floors more than 40 ft. above the level of the street are required to be provided. with such means of escape in the case of fire for the persons dwelling or employed therein as the Building Authority may reasonably require, in accordance with section 149 of Ordinance 1 of 1903. This requirement has been regularly enforced since 1903 but opinions have varied from time to time as to what is reasonable, much stricter views having pre- vailed in recent years. The Building Authority now consults the Chief Officer, Fire Brigade, before expressing satisfaction under section 149. The section further requires any means of escape so provided to be maintained to the satisfaction of the Building Authority; but insuffi- ciency of staff has prevented regular inspections from being carried out to see that this part of the section is observed.

Certain classes of exceptional buildings such as Hotels, Cinemas' Theatres, etc., have for some years past been required by the Building Authority to have special protection against fire even though of a less height than those referred to in section 149. The Government is now considering whether similar safeguards should not be required in respect. of all buildings of more than two stories.

It must be remembered that the plans of the King Edward Hotel were approved in 1902 and the building was certified in 1905 when less stringent views prevailed than those now enforced.

With reference to the detailed suggestions in paragraph (f) of the Honourable Member's question regarding Indicators, Electric Fire Alarms, etc., these suggestions are receiving the consideration of the Government; but it is probable that legislation will be necessary before they can be insisted upon in the case of buildings already certified.

8. The Hon. Mr. W. E. L. SHENTON, pursuant to notice, asked the following ques-

tions:-

1. What steps have been taken by the Government to carry out the report of the Committee appointed to consider suggestions for the improvement of the fire-fighting organisation of the Colony, which was laid on the table of the Legislative Council on the 27th May, 1927 ?

2. If steps have already been taken, what further steps does the Govern-

ment propose to take?

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:-

1. In matters of personnel and equipment the recommendations of the Com- mittee referred to have been generally adopted and either have been or are being carried out with certain minor exceptions the chief of which is that the Government considered it best to retain the Captain Superin- tendent of Police as Chief Officer of the Fire Brigade.

190

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 17, 1929.

As regards construction, it has not yet been possible to provide funds for the suggested main Station in Kowloon but the site referred to is earmarked for the purpose. Temporary substations exist in the Eastern and Western Districts of Victoria but the permanent buildings have not yet been erected for want of funds. The Shaukiwan Substation. has not yet been provided but a hand-trailed motor-pump is installed at Shaukiwan Police Station.

The relaying of the water mains and fixing of pedestal hydrants is being undertaken on annual votes.

As regards legislation for the purpose recommended by the Com- mittee, namely to give the Governor in Council power to make regula- tions in regard to the prevention of fire, escape from, and extinction of fires, the matter was referred to the Attorney General, who advised that legislation was necessary, but that the drafting of the Ordinance should await the formulation of the regulations to be made thereunder. The matter was then referred to the Chief Officer of the Fire Brigade, but owing to the great difficulty of compiling practicable regulations, the matter has made slow progress. Draft regulations regarding Places of Public Entertainment, Garages and the Storage of inflammable liquids were recently submitted to the Government, together with a draft bill enabling these regulations to be put into effect. Further consideration of these draft regulations was postponed pending the finding of the Coroner's enquiry into the King Edward Hotel fire.

2. The regulations already drafted are receiving consideration and the pre- paration of further regulations is being considered by the departments concerned.

QUESTIONS.

5. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions :---

1. In view of the weight of public opinion against the recommendations of the Committee appointed to advise on the taxation of motor-cars (S. P. 3/1929), is it the intention of Government to proceed with legislation on the lines of the Committee's recommendations?

2. If so, will the Government delay any legislation until it has had time to receive representations which the recommendations in question are likely to call forth from the Automobile Association, the motoring and oil trades and transport companies operating in Hong Kong and Kowloon, and other interests affected?

3. In the consideration of the aforesaid recommendations will the Govern-

ment keep in view-

(a) a very generally expressed opinion, to which prominence was given in a leading article of the South China Morning Post of the 2nd May, that "one of the primary needs of the Colony is decentralization-development of suburban residential areas particularly and for this cheap transport is essential";

(b) the possibility of an increase in 'bus fares affecting the masses on whom the proposed taxation may fall most heavily and who are least capable of bearing it ;

(c) the further rise in the high cost of living in the Colony; and

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 21, 1929. 311

(d) the indirect blow at the free-trade policy of the Colony, on which its development and prosperity were founded, by penal- izing one class of motor-car manufacturers in favour of another?

4. Does the Government realise that adoption of the recommendations of the Committee would be tantamount to increasing the taxation on the average car in the Colony by over 200%, thus tending to reduce the efficiency and excellence of the public service of motor-cars at present conducted by owner-drivers and discouraging, through enormously increased oper- ating costs, private ownership?

5. What was the actual quantity of petrol imported in Hong Kong in 1928 and what is the estimated quantity for 1929 and the value thereof?

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:-

1 & 2. The Government does not propose to proceed immediately with legis- lation for the introduction of taxation of motor-cars as recommended by the Committee. The report was published for general information and the Government is prepared to receive representatious from interested parties.

3. The Government will bear in mind the observations made by the Honour-

able Member.

4. The Government has no proof of the correctness of the premises on which the Honourable Member bases his pessimistic estimate of the effects of the proposals suggested by the Committee.

5. Exact figures are not available. The amount imported for local consump- tion in 1928 is estimated at 1,700,000 gallons. The estimated consump- tion in 1929 is 2,000,000 gallous.

Values vary according to price. At the present retail price of 70 cents a gallon the retail values would be $1,190,000 and $1,400,000 respectively.

6. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions:

1. Has the Captain Superintendent of Police had his attention drawn to the leading article in the Hong Kong Daily Press of May 7, alleging that the standard of efficiency among the rank and file of the fire-brigade is low because nearly 50 per cent. of the force leave the service, every year by dismissal, resignation or desertion, and is that statement accurate?

2. Is it considered that the wages offered to firemen are such as to attract suitable recruits to the service, and have any complaints regarding the wages paid been brought to the notice of the authorities?

3. Besides the question of salaries, what other grounds, if any, exist for dis- satisfaction with the conditions of service in the Fire Brigade Sub- department of the Police?

The Captain Superintendent of Police replied as follows:--

1. The Captain Superintendent of Police had perused the article in the Hong Kong Daily Press of May 7th. In 1928 the casualties through resignation, desertion and dismissal were 31, 14 and 21 respectively, making a total of 66. The authorised establishment (Chinese) in 1928 was 240. The casualties under the same head during 1927 were 11, 23 and 14 respect- ively, making a total of 48. The figures for 1929 up to April 30th are 5, 19 and 10 respectively, making a total of 34. It is thus seen that the

312

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 21, 1929.

casualties under the above heads approximate to 25% and not 50% of strength. The following is an extract from the Annual Report of the Chief Officer, Fire Brigade, on the year 1927 :---

66

Recruits. The difficulty in connexion with recruits for the Fire Brigade has now disappeared although vacancies are still of frequent occurrence owing to the ease with which men can leave the Brigade if they wish to do so, i.e. on one month's notice."

Up to the end of 1928 Firemen were on a monthly engagement. It was then decided that, owing to the large number of men who left the Brigade, for one reason or another, after short periods of service, all Chinese members of the Brigade should be called upon to sign an agree- ment for five years service, and provide a security of from $25 to $100 for the keeping of the agreement, This accounts for the large number of resignations in 1929. Members were given the option of resigning or signing a five years agreement. The places of these men have already been filled with the exception of seven; for these last places there are already seven candidates whose characters are at the moment under investigation.

2. It is considered that the wages offered to 'the Chinese staff of the Fire Brigade, in comparison with the wages ruling in other branches of Government service, are adequate. In a report dated December, 1928, the Chief Office wrote: "There have been several revisions of pay to the Chinese staff, and I consider that they are all, from Sub-Officers downwards, well paid. I do not advocate any increase in emoluments over and above any granted generally to Chinese Government employees, irrespective of the departments they are working in." Representatives of the various ranks of the Fire Brigade attended before the Salaries Commission which has recently concluded its sittings. No complaints regarding wages have been brought to the notice of the Authorities.

3. The three principal causes of casualties in the Fire Brigade are:-(a) the work entails a bigger physical strain than candidates anticipate. (b) The discipline, and confinement to Station, which the work entails. (c) The ease with which a candidate could formerly obtain and discard $20 a month and lodging. As to (a), most of these casualties cannot be avoided; it sometimes happens that a man is prepared to continue in the Brigade, but the Superintendent has to turn him away, after trial, because he has not the requisite physical strength. It is a debatable question whether higher pay would overcome this difficulty. Higher pay might attract a more intelligent class of candidate, but it is highly probable that he would possess a lower standard of physical strength and nerve. (b) The Chinese mind does not take kindly to Fire Brigade discipline. The demands of their duty are recognised by the grant to Firemen of 24 hours leave every six days. (c) This difficulty has been met, it is hoped, by the institution of a five years agreement.

QUESTIONS.

6. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions:-

1. What are the functions of the Subordinate Staff Sub-Committee?

2. Having regard to the fact that the Sub-Committee is composed entirely of official members, will the Government consider, favourably, in the interest of the public service, the enlargement of that Board by the inclusion of unofficial members also?

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 28, 1929.

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:-

321

1. The Subordinate Staff Board was appointed under Government Notifica- tion No. 112, dated the 24th of April, 1911, to advise on certain matters connected with the clerical and subordinate branches of the Civil Ser- vice. The Board makes recommendations for promotion in the Clerical. and allied branches of the Government Services and keeps the con- fidential reports made by Heads of Departments on officers of this class. It also supervises recruiting and advises on transfers.

2. The Government is unable to agree as to the efficacy or the desirability of

this proposal.

7. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions:-

1. How many petrol service stations exist in the City of Victoria and at

Kowloon, respectively, and at what places?

2. To whom and under what conditions has permission been granted for

erecting and maintaining such service stations?

3.

Are there any applications pending for the erection of additional service- stations; if so, from whom have such applications been received and how many await decision?

4. Have any applications been refused and on what grounds?

5. What is the annual revenue derived from permits for the encroachment of Crown land and dangerous goods licences, respectively, for petrol. stations in respect of-

(a) the City of Victoria; and

8. The Hon. Mr. W. E. L. SHENTON, pursuant to notice, asked the following ques-

tions:

Will the Government give this Council the following information :---

1. The present position of the water supply in this Colony?

2. What measures have the Government already taken or planned to

meet the present water shortage.

(a) By obtaining supplies of water outside the Colony.

(b) By improving the water supplies within the Colony?

3. What plans have the Government for preventing the recurrence of

the present shortage of water?

The Director of Public Works replied as follows:-

The total quantity of water in the storage and service reservoirs on the island on the morning of the 17th June amounted to 192.75 million gallons. The average drop since June 1 (with fully one inch rainfall) has been 3.2 million gallons a day, which means that, under similar conditions, there is storage to last until 16th August.

The daily rate of draw-off will, however, be decreased by further curtailment of the hours of supply, as further outside sources of supply are brought to Hong Kong for the benefit chiefly of those sections of the community on the lower levels who are at present the principal sufferers.

The Daily Consumption.

The total daily consumption from all sources has been reduced to 4 million gallons as against a maximum 1928 summer supply of 12 million gallons a day. Compared with last June the High Levels consumption has decreased by about 40% and the same reduction applies to all metered services in the City.

At present all the reservoirs, excepting Tytam, are practically empty, and it is of interest to record that, with the exception of the Pokfulam Reser- voir, there is no evidence of silting. The Pokfulam Reservoir has silted to the extent of 3 or 4 millions gallons due to the construction of the section of Stubbs Road within the catchment area. The total loss in storage in the island reservoirs due to siltage is about 0.2 of 1%.

In Kowloon the total quantity of water in the storage and service reservoirs

on 17th June amounted to 80.51 million gallons.

The yield from the Shing Mun River since 1st June (with a 2 inch rainfall) has averaged 1.50 million gallons a day, but at times it has dropped to less than 1 million gallons a day.

The average daily drop in storage since 1st June has been 0.75 million gallons so that with but a small rainfall Kowloon should have storage for about 33 months. It is hoped that it may soon be possible to increase the hours of supply in Kowloon, but it must be bourne in mind that Kowloon may have to continue contributing supplies to Hong Kong from Laichikok for many months-possibly until next year's rain set in. As regards subsidiary water supplies the Shaukiwan and Aberdeen Village supplies are in a fairly secure position, and only a few light showers are necessary to keep the streams supplying these water works with sufficient for the normal consumption.

Arrangements have been made for all Government vessels to obtain their

supplies from these sources during the present shortage.

The Repulse Bay supply (from Wongneichong Reservoir) is almost exhausted, but arrangements have been made to deliver water by water boat from Stanley or Aberdeen, should it completely fail. Less than 10,000 gallons a day would suffice to maintain an emergency supply to this district.

326

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 28, 1929.

There is plenty of water at Taipo, but the Fanling supply is getting rather

low.

Emergency Measures.

The following emergency measures have been taken to augment the ordinary

supplies.

In November, 1928, 4 steel tanks, each of 30,000 gallons capacity, were cabled for from England and arrived in the Colony on 28th January, 1929. Two were erected at Western Street and Sutherland Street, and came into operation on the 21st March. The other two were erected at Western Market and Gilman Street, and came into operation on the 9th and 14th April respectively. The total quantity delivered to these tanks to date from the Laichikok Water Boat Dock is 22.63 million gallons, or an average of 0.257 million gallons a day. For the past few weeks daily delivery has been over 330,000 gallons a day.

Two other steel tanks were purchased locally and have been erected at Douglas Wharf and Centre Street. The former is supplied by the Douglas Company steamers when in port and also by H.M.S. Cherub from time to time.

The remainder of the tanks (15) are of brick and reinforced concrete con- struction, nine having been built by the Tung Wah Hospital Authorities and the last six erected by Government on the new Praya East Reclama- tion. The following is a list of the various tanks shewing their positions and capacity, totalling over 1,000,000 gallons. The additional Tanks will be available for intermittent sources of supply from steamers bring- ing water from outports and for the supplies from Wang Man and Tsun Wan.

The quantity of water delivered into tanks on the Praya from ships calling at Hong Kong between the 10th and 17th June, both days inclusive, was $36,640 gallons, or 3,735 tons, this water coming from Japan, Shanghai, Foochow and Wang Mun.

Shipping Companies' Assistance.

We are much indebted to the local Shipping Companies for their kind assist- ance and active co-operation in securing this continuous transport of water from the outports. Messrs. Jardine, Matheson & Co. again come to our assistance by placing the services of Mr. Robert Sutherland at the disposal of Government during his recent visit to Shanghai.

Arrangements were made early in the year with Messrs. Butterfield and Swire to obtain a supply from the Taikoo Refinery for delivery to the City Mains in the Whitfield area. A 5" connecting pipe line, 750 ft. in length, was laid and water was obtained from the Refinery on the 1st February. Up to date a total of 21.35 million gallons has been obtained from this source, equal to an average daily quantity of 157,000 gallons. At present the Refinery has restricted the supply to Government to 100,000 gallons a day.

This firm have kindly furnished Government with a statement of the water in their reservoirs and have expressed their willingness to assist in any way possible.

Shing Mun Valley Yield.

A pump was fixed in the Shing Mun Valley in April to deliver additional water from the river below the Intake into the temporary conduit. This pump has delivered approximately 30,000 gallons a day since 1st May. Another pump is in course of erection, capable of delivering up to 1 million gallons a day whenever that amount is available.

A channel (length 1,200 ft.) an 8" pipe line (length 600 ft.) and a pier (length 370 ft.) have been constructed at the stream mile West of Tsun Wan Village. This work was commenced on 2nd June and completed on 9th June when water boats commenced transporting water to Hong Kong. The dry weather flow of the stream is approximately 500,000 gallons a day, but to obtain this amount a certain quantity has to be pumped from the stream to the channel. Arrangements have made with Messrs. Williamson and Co. to supply a pumping unit for this purpose and it is hoped to have this in operation in a few days. Since 9th June an average of 270,000 gallons a days has been obtained from this source and this will be increased within the next few days.

328

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 28, 1929.

Another similar pumping unit has been fixed in the Laichikok stream below the Kowloon Filter Beds to pump up the contents of the stream to the Filter Beds. A minimum yield of 75,000 gallons a day is anticipated. An 8" pipe line 1,600 ft. in length has been laid to divert the lower Sheklipui stream into the Kowloon Filter Beds and a dry weather flow of 40,000 gallons a day is meanwhile being obtained.

Other Sources.

The supply from Sham Tseng Source is not yet in operation owing to the necessary pipes having to be obtained from outside the Colony. Other sources have been investigated at Tai Shui Hang, giving approximately 32,000 gallons a day, and at Yu Ho at Tai O, giving approximately 87,000 gallons a day, but these supplies will not be taken up at present as it is not advisable to divert lighters for this work owing to the small quantity available and the difficulties of approach.

The construction of a temporary dry weather flow channel about 3,500 ft. in length from the Tytam Bay stream to Tytam Tuk Reservoir has com- menced and it is hoped to complete it by the end of July. This work will be later superseded by the permanent "Dragon's Back" Catchwater. Meantime it is hoped to gain at least 50 million gallons from August to March, 1930, and as it is most unlikely that Tytam Tuk will overflow this summer, this additional storage will be most welcome.

Restrictions.

Since the possibility of a water shortage was foreseen last Autumn, the follow-

ing restrictions have been imposed.

September 10th, 1928.

Full supply to all district ceased.

September 11th-October 31st.

Peak 4 hours daily.

Emergency Regulations.

Regulations under the Emergency Regulations Ordinance have been made by the Governor in Council, empowering the Director of Public Works to take over water boats, lighters, and other vessels to be used for con- veying or storing water, and any source of water supply, with the reservoir, piers, and other works in connexion therewith.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 28, 1929. 329

The Railway Department have been instructed by Government to make 20 trucks suitable for the transport of water from points along the railway As the Wang Mun sources affords the nearest unlimited supply it has been. decided to concentrate upon this source, and the necessary arrangements for the transport of approximately 3,000,000 gallons a day are being made. Some 67 lighters of approximately 200 tons capacity each, and about 25 towing craft, will be required. The Shipping Sub-Committee is making a census of all suitable craft but orders have not yet been placed except in the case of 18 lighters which are now being adapted. Of these eight 100-ton lighters have already been made available.

Wang Mun Scheme.

The Government Bacteriologist has reported on samples of water from Wang Mun, and the results are considered satisfactory, the water being ren- dered suitable for potable purposes by slight chlorination.

The permission of the Chinese Provincial Authorities and the Commissioner of the Chinese Maritime Customs has been sought for taking the water requirement of the Colony from this source.

The estimated cost of this scheme is approximately $200,000 a month, apart

from the initial cost of adapting lighters for the carriage of water. At present H.M.S Cherub continues to do very useful duty in transporting water from Wang Mun, and the S.S. Fukwong, a lighter tanker of 1,400 tons capacity, has been chartered for this service from the Asiatic Petro- leum Co., with a draught capable of negotiating the Wang Mun Bar at all states of the tide.

The Naval Dock.

The proposal to use the Royal Naval dry dock for storage has again received careful consideration. Apart from the serious difficulty of overcoming contamination of the fresh water by seepage this question is dependent upon the use of tankers, which alone would involve an expenditure of approximately $500,000 a month for a supply of 21 million gallons a day (not including the cost of water at Shanghai). The estimated expenditure in connexion with the Wang Mun Scheme is $200,000 a month, for a supply of 3,000,000 gallons a day, and it is hoped that this will prove to be a conservative estimate.

The tankers would also require storage units of much larger capacity than the existing tanks, and would involve additional pipe lines and pumping ashore-thus further increasing the cost of this source of supply.

Pumping to Tytam Tuk.

The alternative proposals of pumping from tankers into the Elliot Filter Beds or to the Tytam Tuk Pumping Station have been carefully examined, and the Tytam Tuk scheme is proving to be the more feasible proposi- tion. The Waterworks Department are preparing the scheme for laying the necessary pipes connecting the Pumping Station with the pier which it will be necessary to build to carry the pipe out to the tanker lying off in deep water. This pier will be erected by the Port Development Office.

By this scheme it will be possible to connect the tankers with the pumps at the Tytam Tuk Pumping Station, which will deliver the water direct into the tunnel intake, whence it will flow through the Bowen Road Conduit into the Eastern, Albany and Elliot Filter Beds as required. It may be possible to arrange for tankers to convey water to Hong Kong occa- sionally in their way through the Colony without incurring the greater cost of hiring them entirely for the transport of water; but in any case- arrangements such as are now proposed must be made to take delivery of such consignments as are carried by tankers with a storage capacity of about 10,000 tons.

Rain-Making Experiments.

On the 18th June by kind permission of the Commodore rain making experi- ments were undertaken by the Royal Air Force. Seven flights were made from the Kai Tak Aerodrome by planes each carrying I cwt. of powdered kaolin which was dispersed into clouds considered to be so located as to produce the best results over the catchment areas of the Hong Kong and Kowloon Reservoirs. Unfortunately no appreciable results were obtained.

Wells and Nullahs.

Supplies from wells and nullahs are being made available in consultation with the Hon. Director of Medical and Sanitary Services. Particulars of wells opened have already been published. The following is a list of the nullahs from which supplies have been made available to the public:

Star Street.

Victoria Nullah at Queen's Road East.

Albany Nullah-Boundary Path, Lower Tram Station.

Wyndham Street/Wellington Street (from Glenealy Nullah).

No. 12 Bridge Nullah Shaukiwan, Main Nullah.

No. 12 Bridge Nullah Shaukiwan, West Branch.

P. W. D. Annexe (from Albany Nullah).

Tai Hang Village.

Cadogan Street.

Beach Street.

Duddell Street.

Seth's Corner.

Whitfield.

Matheson Street.

Yee Woo Street.

Pennington Street.

Pokfulam Road/Shektongtsui Nullah.

Hing Hon Road.

Bonham Road/Western Street.

At all wells and nullahs notices, in English and Chinese, have been posted warning the public that the water must be boiled if used for potable purposes.

Permanent Measures.

Measures taken to prevent recurrence of water shortage.

The following permanent measures are being taken to increase the supply:---- 1. The Aberdeen Valley Scheme, estimated to maintain a daily supply

of 2.12 million gallons during the driest known period.

It is hoped to call for tenders within 2 months for the construction. of the dam and a short length of catchwater. The necessary pipes and pumps have been ordered from home, and water from this source should be available by the Spring of 1931.

2. The cross harbour pipe line which has now received the approval of the Consulting Engineers is likely to be available in time for the spring rains of 1930 and will be capable of delivering up to 4 million gallons a day to the island.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JUNE 28, 1929. 331

3. The Dragon's Back at Mt. Pottinger Catchwaters have been investi- gated and preliminary drawings prepared. The minimum yield from areas intercepted by these Catchwaters is estimated at 11 million gallons a day. Construction work can be commenced next year if sufficient staff is available.

4. The Contract for the construction of the Byewash Dam has been signed and notice to commence the work given. It should be possible to impound a certain amount of water in the reservoir in about 14 months' time. The total storage will be 175 million gallons approximately.

5. The Shoklipui Service Reservoir now under construction will add 10

million gallons to storage. It will be finished within a year.

6. Investigation of the further sections of the Shing Mun Valley Scheme is proceeding. The Gorge Dam at Pineapple Pass appears to be feasible and preliminary investigations at Gin Drinkers' Bay, where there is a very large basin capable of impounding fully 2,000 million gallons, have turned out well.

Considerable preliminary work is, however, necessary before works of

this magnitude can be commenced.

These and other possible sources of supply have been dealt with fully in

QUESTIONS.

5. The Hon. Mr. R. H. KOTEWALL, C.M.G., LL.D., pursuant to notice, asked the

following questions:-

With reference to the statement made by the Ilonourable Director of Public Works at the last meeting of this Council that the scheme of pumping water from Tankers to the Tytam Tuk Pumping Station was found to be feasible, and that preparation was being made for laying the necessary pipes connecting the Pumping Station with a pier to be erected, in deep- water, will the Government state:-

(1) Whether it considers it advisable forthwith to proceed with the scheme on a scale which will permit a direct supply to all houses in the city for, say, 4 hours a day, leaving the street- fountains and other subsidiary supplies to augment this direct supply;

(2) What is the estimated cost of such a scheme;

(3) Whether the Government has considered any method other than the use of tankers for conveying water to feed the Tytam Tuk Pumping Station for this purpose;

(4) If not, whether the Government will consider the suggestion of utilising, for the purpose of this scheme, the expected supply of three million gallons a day from Wang Mun to be conveyed by lighters, at an estimated cost of $200,000 a month.

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:

(1) Preparations for the scheme for connecting a Tanker supply with the Tytam Tuk Pumping Station are in hand but it is not considered feasible to proceed with the scheme on the scale suggested, owing to the difficulty and expense of obtaining a sufficient number of Tankers to maintain a supply from this source.

(2) A 10,000 ton Tanker would be capable, after the necessary construction work at Tytam had been completed, of delivering 21 million gallons a day into the Pumping Station. In order to provide a daily supply a fleet of 10 such Tankers would be needed and it is estimated that apart from the actual cost of the water obtained, such a scheme would involve expenditure of not less than $500,000 a month. The Government con- siders expenditure at this rate to be beyond the financial means of the Colony.

368

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 19, 1929.

(3) and (4) Yes. Suitable Tankers occasionally pass through Hong Kong and the Government proposes when such an opportunity offers to utilize their services to bring water from Shanghai or elsewhere for delivery into Tytam Tuk Pumping Station. The necessary works at Tytam Tuk to make this possible will cost approximately $830,000 and orders have been given to proceed with this work. Government is also considering the possibility of passing the water obtained from Wang Mun by small Tankers and Lighters through the Tytam Tuk Pumping Station; but the matter is one of considerable difficulty and is not sufficiently advanced to enable a final decision to be given. In any case the scheme must await the completion of the pipe-line and connected works now in hand at Tytam Tuk. The works are expected to be completed in about three weeks. While the schemes now in contemplation will it is hoped enable the water stored in the reservoirs to be conserved it is unlikely that sufficient water could be made available through the Pumping Station to enable the existing system of distribution to be materially improved.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 26, 1929.

CONDITIONS OF LICENCE.

    1. The sending apparatus used at the station shall be as described and specified in the diagrams and particulars hereto annexed.

[NOTE:-Diagrams and particulars, in duplicate, must accompany every applica- tion for a licence. One set will be retained by the Postmaster General, and

the other will be annexed to the licence.]

2. The combined height and length of the aerial shall not exceed 100 feet.

3. In case any aerial of the licensee crosses or will cross above or is or will be liable to fall upon or be blown onto or against any overhead power wire (including electic lighting and tramway wires) the licensee shall notify the owner of such overhead power wire and shall provide, fix and maintain, to the reasonable satisfaction of such owner, proper and adequate guards against contact.

4. The power used for transmission shall be as specified in the particulars hereto annexed, and messages shall be sent only on the wave lengths (tonic-train, C.W. and telephony) as specified in the particulars. Spark transmission is specifically forbidden.

NOTE:-In no case will a licence be granted for power exceeding ten watts.

    5. The station shall always be equipped for reception as well as transmission, and the sending apparatus shall invariably be tuned accurately within the limits specified in the particulars.

6. Messages may be sent at any time, but the time occupied in transmission shall not exceed two hours during any consecutive period of twenty-four hours.

7. A record shall be kept of all transmissions, showing the date and times of cach transmission and the wavelength and system (tonic-train, C.W. or telephony) employed.

A

    8. No transmission shall commence without listening-in on the wavelength which is to be used in order to ascertain whether the proposed transmission is likely to interfere with any other station which may be working. No single transmission shall last for more than ten consecutive minutes and each transmission shall be followed by a period of not less than three minutes listening-in on the wavelength used for transmission. Such listening-in must be in all cases performed by the licensee in person. Trans- mission shall at once be discontinued or postponed at the request of any Government or commercial station.

9. Messages shall be transmitted only to stations which are actually co-operating in the licensee's experiments and shall relate solely to such experiments. The use of the apparatus for general calls or transmission of news, advertisements, or similar matter is strictly forbidden.

10. The call signal...

                            .....is allotted to the licensee's station. In calling up another transmitting station the call signal of that station should be sent three times, the word "from" once, and the call signal of the sending station three times. In answering a call, the call signal of the calling station should be sent three times, the word "from once and the call signal of the station once. The call signal of the station transmitting should also be sent three times at the beginning and end of each subsequent period of transmission and on every occasion when the wavelength is changed.

NOTE: Call signals are not allotted to stations for receiving only.

11. Before beginning to call, the licensee must adjust his receiving-apparatus to the highest possible degree of sensitiveness, and make sure that the station which he wishes to call is not engaged in communication and that no excessive interference will be caused to other communication in progress within range on the frequency to be used. If the licensee finds that transmission is taking place, or that there is a probability of such interference occurring, he must wait for the first break before calling, unless he has ascertained that his working will not interfere with communication in progress.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 26, 1929.

381

NOTE:-Licensees cannot be too careful in carrying out this regulation, as by calling a station which is already engaged in transmission, or calling while other stations are working they are liable to interfere with the communication that is taking place, causing delay to the stations already engaged, and delaying their own messages.

   12. The station shall be used in such a manner as to cause no avoidable interference with other stations. In particular reaction must not be used for reception to such an extent as to energise any neighbouring aerial.

NOTE. A general obligation which is imposed on all stations alike, and which is regarded as of the highest importance, is that they shall interfere as little as possible with the working of other stations. The rules of working are largely designed to prevent such interference.

13. Tests and adjustments in the licensee's station must be conducted so as not to interfere with the service of other stations engaged in authorised correspondence. Signals used for testing and adjustment must be of a kind that will cause no confusion with a signal, abbreviation, &c. having a special meaning defined in the International Radio- telegraph Regulations.

14. When sending any signal for the purpose of tests, adjustments or experiments the licensee must, during the course of transmission, emit the call sign at frequent intervals.

  15. When it is necessary to send test signals, in order to adjust the licensed apparatus before proceeding with a call or transmission, the signals must not be continued for more than about ten seconds and they must be composed of a series of V's followed by the call sign of the sending station. Similarly, if the station sends test signals at the request of another station to enable the latter to adjust its receiving apparatus, these signals must be composed of a series of V's in which the call sign of the sending station. is interpolated several times.

  16. The station shall be subject to the control and approval of the Postmaster General, and, together with the record of transmissions, shall be open to inspection at all reasonable times by officers of the Government duly authorised by the Postmaster General.

NOTE:-Duly authorised officers will produce their cards of identity upon request.

17.-(1) The licensee shall not divulge or allow to be divulged to any person (other than a duly authorised officer of His Majesty's Government or of the Government of Hong Kong, or a competent legal tribunal) or make any use whatsoever of any message, both telegraphic and telephonic, received by means of his apparatus, except messages in connection with his experiments received from another experimental station. The inter- ception of radioelectric correspondence other than that which the station is authorised to receive is strictly forbidden, and where such correspondence is involuntarily received it. must not be reproduced, transcribed, communicated to others or used for any purpose whatsoever.

  (2) Not only wireless operators, but all persons who are in a position to becomie acquainted with the contents of radiotelegrams, are bound to preserve the secrecy of correspondence.

(3) Such operators and persons must preserve secrecy in regard to the contents of, or merely the existence of, correspondence which may be intercepted by wireless stations in connection with which they are employed, as well as in regard to the contents of radio- telegrams which are authorised to be sent or received by the station.

  (4) The unauthorised transmission and reception by means of radio installations of correspondence of a private nature, the unauthorised publication or use of correspon- dence received by means of radio installations, and the transmission or placing in circulation of false or deceptive distress signals or distress calls is strictly prohibited.

18. In case of distress the obligation to accept messages is absolute in the case of every station without distinction, and such messages must be accepted with priority over all other messages; they must be answered, and the necessary steps must be taken to give effect to them.

382

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 26, 1929.

    19. The licensee must be and keep himself conversant with the International Radio- telegraph Convention of Washington, 1927, and with the General Regulations and additional regulations annexed thereto and with all substitutions and modifications thereof, and conform thereto in as far as the same are applicable to him or to the station hereby licensed.

2. If it is desired to transfer the station to another address it is necessary first to obtain the per- mission of the Postmaster General and to pay the prescribed fee.

3. This licence may be cancelled by the Postmaster General at any time, either by notice in writing addressed to the licensee at the address specified in the licence, or by a general notice in the Government Gazette, or in such other way as he may think fit. Any contravention of any of the conditions specified in the licence may cause cancellation of the licence.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 26, 1929.

CONDITIONS.

1. The apparatus shall not be used for any purpose other than that of receiving.

383

  2. The apparatus shall not be used in such a manner as to cause interference with the working of other stations. In particular, back coupling must not be used to such an extent as to energize any neighbouring aerial.

""

66

NOTE:-Interference is taking place if a continuous "note or whistle" is heard. If this "note" or "whistle" changes when the wave length of the receiver is altered, the cause of interference is the receiver and reaction must be reduced until no "note

     "note" or "whistle" is audible. If the note" or "whistle" does not change, the interference is due to some external source.

3. The combined height and length of the external aerial, where one is employed, shall not exceed 100 feet. An aerial which crosses above or is liable to fall upon or to be blown onto any overhead power wire, including electric lighting and tramway wires, must be guarded to the reasonable satisfaction of the owner of the power wire concerned. All aerials shall be fitted with an earthing switch, and the aerial shall be left earthed when not in use.

+

4. The earth connection shall where possible consist of a buried plate or tube in the ground external to the building. Where this arrangement is not possible a soldered connection should be made to the water pipe. On no account shall a gas pipe be used as an earth.

5. The licensee shall not divulge or allow to be divulged to any person, other than a duly authorised officer of the Government, or a competent legal tribunal, or use in any way whatsoever, any message received by means of the apparatus, other than time signals, musical performances, messages sent for general reception, and messages sent solely for experimental purposes from an authorised experimental sending station. The intercep- tion of radioelectric correspondence other than that which the licensee is authorised to receive is forbidden, and where such correspondence is involuntarily received it must not be reproduced, transcribed, communicated to others, or used for any purpose whatsoever.

6. The apparatus shall be open to inspection at all times by any person who produces a written authority to inspect, either general or particular, signed by the Post- master General, and this licence shall be produced to any such person upon request by him.

QUESTIONS.

5. The Hon. Mr. W. E. L. SHENTON, pursuant to notice, asked the following ques-

tions:-

1. Is the Government in a position to inform this Council whether there is a possibility of arrangements being made in the near future for a vehi- cular ferry across the harbour.

2. Will the Government inform this Council :

(a) As to what steps are being taken to establish an effective broad

casting system in this Colony.

(b) What will be the effective range of such system when the Govern

ment's contemplated scheme is completed.

When is it anticipated that such scheme will be in full operation.

3. What steps have been taken du ring the current year with the object of bringing into operation an effective system for dealing with Malaria in this Colony.

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:-

1. The Government has received pro posals from certain con panies and

parties interested in the formation of a vehicular ferry service across the harbour, but no definite arrangements have yet been concluded. The construction of the necessary wharfage and ferry-steamers will in any case preclude the possibility of inaugurating such a service in the near future.

2. The answer to the Honourable Member's questions depends upon the

meaning which he attaches to the word "effective

                     The present broadcasting system is effective for about 50 miles and the studio is being furnished out of a vote of $5,000 authorised on the 21st March last for equipment. The furnishing, when completed, should improve the quality, though not the strength, of the emission.

The Government has approved the appointment of a Committee. under the Chairmanship of the Postmaster General to assist in the pre- paration of broadcasting programmes and the provision of funds for improved programmes will come up for consideration with the Estimates of 1930.

If the Honourable Member has in mind an effective range of 400 miles it is estimated that the cost of establishing a transmitting station. of adequate strength for that radius would involve an expenditure of over $200,000 for buildings and equipment alone. There would in addition be annual charges estimated at not less than $80,000 a year, exclusive of the cost of the programmes. The Government does not feel justified at the present time in embarking upon this large expendi-

ture.

3. As the Honourable Member is aware provision was made both in 1928 and 1929 Estimates for a Malarial Research Officer and the Secretary of State was asked to select an officer to fill this appointment; but in December of last year, having appointed as Director of Medical and Sanitary Services Dr. A. R. WELLINGTON who had had long experience

396

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 26, 1929

in anti-malarial work, he deferred making an appointment to the vacant post until Dr. WELLINGTON'S advice could be obtained. After due con- sideration Dr. WELLINGTON has recommended that the post be filled by the transfer to this Colony of a Health Officer who has had long experi- ence in Mosquitology and anti-malarial works together with a Sanitary Inspector similarly qualified. The Secretary of State is being asked if the transfer of suitable officers can be arranged. It will be necessary to increase the amount provided for this Service when the exact terms of transfer are known.

It is intended that these officers shall form the nucleus of an anti- malarial branch of the Medical Department. They will train local recruits and they and their staff will make the detailed anopheline. surveys which are a necessary preliminary to any economic and efficient. anti-malarial campaign, which has for its basis the destruction of the breeding grounds of those species of anophelines which are active agents in the spread of malaria.

6. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following questions :-

1. What are the respective dates and amounts of the premium paid for Crown land leased to the Kowloon Tong and New Territories Develop- ment Co., Ltd., under Clause 5 sub-sections (a), (b) and (e) of the Agreement dated 26th October, 1922, between the Government and the Company?

2. Is it a fact that there is still owing by the Company to the Government

a sum of $318,450.14 as the balance of land premium?

3. In view of the fact that about one-sixth of the estimated total cost of land and building is paid by each out of the 242 subscribers to the Scheme upon his signing the Agreement with the Company, and before any actual work is commenced, what is the explanation for the large sum stated in Question 2 being still unpaid to Government in respect of land premium?

4. Has the Government knowledge of a circular letter, dated 2nd July, 1929, issued over the signature of the Managing Director in which the sum of $2,990,258.49 is stated as the sum "which represents the total amount payable by the entire body of Subscribers under their respective Agreements in respect of all the houses embraced within the Scheme" i.e., the Kowloon Tong Estate Scheme?

5 Is it a fact that the signatory of the letter referred to in Question 4 besides being the Managing Director of the Kowloon Tong and New Territories Development Co., Ltd., is also the paid architect of the said Company and a Director of the Hong Kong Excavation Pile Driving and Con- struction Co., Ltd., with which the Contract for the carrying out of the scheme has been entered into by the Kowloon Tong Company?

6. Between the period when the last Managing Director left the Colony early in 1928 and the appointment of the present incumbent to the office on 22nd May, 1929, is it not true that no Managing Director existed, and this being the case to whom did the Government look for the fulfillment of the Agreement of 1922 during that period?

7. Was the Government cognisant of the fact that for the carrying out of a scheme involving in the end a sum of nearly $3,000,000 (irrespective of the Government share) there was registered a Company with a capital limited to a liability of only $20,000 of which not more than $2,000 was actually paid up?

8. Was it considered prudent to vest in a Company the right and power of absolute control of a scheme involving a few million dollars in its execu- tion when its only visible capital was a sum of $2,000 with shares paid up to the extent only of 10 cents each?

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, JULY 26, 1929.

397

9. Was any and what Government supervision exercised over the Company in the carrying out of the Company's obligations towards the Govern- ment in terms of the Agreement with the Government?

10. Is it not a fact that up to the 31st December, 1924, the following aggre-

gate payments had been made by individual purchasers :---

(a) In respect of Land (b) Buildings-1st Call

2nd Call

3rd Call

$556,925

636,000

127.800

76,400

$1,397,125

representing 18.62%, 21.27%, 4.27% and 2.55%, respectively, of the total cost of $2,990,258 up to date?

11. If the reply to Question 10 be in the affirmative, what reason is there for a sum of over three hundred thousand dollars for land premium remain- ing unpaid to the Government, when the Government had already been informed that $556,925 had been collected from the subscribers?

12. What steps is the Government taking to recover the debt from the Com-

pany?

13. Is the Government aware of the fact that, in respect of land for which the Company contracted to pay the Government about $400,000, the Company is already and had been for several years in receipt from the subscribers of over $500,000?

14. Is the Government aware that in the Circular letter referred to in Ques- tion 4 the Kowloon Tong Company has given notice to all subscribers calling for the payment of "a further Call to the extent of 9 per cent. of the amount covenanted to be paid by each and every subscriber in respect of each and every House on the Estate" which will make a total of 109% of what the Subscribers covenanted to pay?

15. Has the demand for payment been made with the knowledge and consent of the Government? Did not the Company write in to the Government subsequent to 1924 sending a List of Subscribers who have fully paid up all monies in respect of their property under the scheme and calling upon the Government to issue Crown Leases for same in terms of Clause 7, sub-section (a) of the Agreement?

16. In a letter to the subscriber of House No. 111 of the Kowloon Tong

Estate dated 26th January, 1926, the General Manager stated:-

"I can now produce the documentary evidence to the Crown Land Agent (sic) and ask that your Crown Lease be made at once. The fees therein will be $30. If you desire the Company to secure this Lease for you, I will make sworn affidavit under

the Agreement, and do so for you.

Will His Excellency the Governor kindly direct that the text of the "documentary evidence" referred to above be laid on the table of this Council?

17. Will the Government appoint a Commission of Enquiry to investigate

into and report on the Kowloon Tong Scheme?

The Colonial Secretary-The replies to the honourable member's questions are

not yet ready.

The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA-Arising out of the Colonial Secretary's reply I should like to bring to Your Excellency's notice the urgency of this Kowloon Tong question.

The Colonial Secretary-On a point of order Sir, no speeches can be made. H.E. the Governor-Only supplementary questions can be asked. I may say that the replies to the hon. member's questions will it is hoped be given next week.
