No. 31.-The following Finding of the Marine Court of Enquiry held on the 7th January, 1931, to enquire into the circumstances attending the stranding of the British Steamship Kutsang, is published for general information.

16th January, 1931.

FINDING.

E. R. HALLIFAX,

Colonial Secretary.

We find that the S.S. Kutsang (Official No. 146223 of Hong Kong) of which Mr. Valentine McClymond Liddell, (Certificate of Competency No. 1764 of Hong Kong) was Master, whilst on a voyage from Singapore to Hong Kong grounded at the Eastern Entrance to the Fu Tau Mun Pass at 8.2 p.m. on December 17th, 1930.

We find that the ship proceeded at 7.12 p.m. from a position about 3' S. 85 E. (true) from Waglan at 10 knots under the personal direction of the Master on a course N. 34 W. true. Owing to the obstruction caused by Fishing Craft it was necessary for the ship to be constantly under helm and at one point had to complete a full turn of 32 points. A further difficulty to navigation was experienced owing to the glare of 'bright light" fishing lights to the Eastward of Taithong Point. The Master appears to have been fully confident of his capabilities, due to many years of local experience, to navigate his ship" by eye from Waglan to Hong Kong. As Taithong Point Light was not sighted by 7.50 p.m. we are of the opinion that the Master should have realised that he was not in the position that he estimated himself to be and should have reduced speed and checked his position by taking a bearing of Waglan Light House. This he failed to do. Further we are of opinion that when Cape Collinson Light House was sighted at 7.55 p.m. a bearing should have been taken. This would have shown at once that the ship was running into danger.

""

We are therefore of opinion that Mr. Valentine McClymond Liddell, due to not taking any bearings between 7.12 p.m. and 8.1 p.m. stranded his ship by default and we therefore adjudge him to be Severely Reprimanded.

The Court would like to take this opportunity of expressing their appreciation of the very straight-forward and honest manner in which Captain Liddell has given his

evidence.

Given under our hands at Victoria, in the Colony of Hong Kong, this 7th day of January, 1931. ·

(3) The Enumerator shall, if so requested by any prescribed person or by any person acting on behalf of such prescribed person, give such explanations as to the form of return or the procedure to be followed in making the return as are reasonably necessary to enable the prescribed person to make a proper return.

(2) Where such claim and notice have been duly served, the prescribed person to whom notice is given shall not be required to include in his return any particulars with respect to the person claiming other than the name of such person and the relation in which he stands to the prescribed person, and the person so claiming shall be deemed to be the prescribed person with respect to himself and shall, in making his return, state therein the name of the person who but for the claim would have been required to make the return.

8.-(1) The Enumerator shall, as nearly as may be in the course of the day follow- ing the Census Day, collect all forms of return delivered by him and shall examine each return and satisfy himself that the entries thereon are properly and sufficiently made, and shall make all such inquiries as are reasonably necessary for that purpose and shall himself make such corrections in the return as appear to him on inquiry to be required.

(2) Every person shall give the Enumerator all such information as may reasonably be required by him as aforesaid for the completion or correction of any return.

9. The Enumerator shall on receiving each return, enter upon the return such particulars as may be required by the Superintendent of Census to be entered by the Enumerator on the form of return and shall forthwith-

(a) enter in all forms of return collected by him such further particulars as may

be required by the Superintendent of Census; and

11. The Superintendent of Census may himself give such directions to Enumerators as he may deem necessary for carrying out the duties imposed upon them by these regulations.

   12. Where it appears to the Superintendent of Census that an Enumerator is for reasons of health or otherwise unfit to perform the duties imposed on him by these regulations the Superintendent of Census may appoint some fit and proper person in his place to perform the said duties.

13. The Superintendent of Census may, if he thinks fit, require an Enumerator to make a statutory declaration that such Enumerator has properly and sufficiently per- formed the duties imposed on him by these regulations.

14. No person having the custody, whether by himself or on behalf of any other person, of any forms of return, or other confidential documents relating to the Census shall permit any other person without lawful authority to have, or fail to prevent any other person from having, access thereto.

     4. Value of Certificates.-Ordinary certificates entitle the holders to go to sea, in the grades certified, as Engineers of any steamship in the British Mercantile Marine.

     5. Examination of Engine Room Artificers.-Artificer Engineers, Chief Engine Room Artificers, Engine Room Artificers, and Mechanicians in the Royal Navy may be examined for certificates of competency on the same conditions as Engineers in the Mercantile Marine.

6. Application by Naval Officers. The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty have directed that applications from officers of the Royal Navy for permission to be examined for certificates of competency must in the case of officers on the active. list be made through the Commanding Officer to the Secretary to the Admiralty and in the case of officers who are on half pay or who have retired, direct to the Secretary to the Admiralty who in either case will forward the application to the Hong Kong Government.

     It is not necessary for applications of Chief or other Engine Room Artificers and Mechanicians, who have left the Royal Navy and who desire to be examined for certificates of competency as Engineers in the Mercantile Marine, to be forwarded either through their Commanding Officers or through the Admiralty. Men who are still serving in these ratings in the Royal Navy should make their applications through their Com- manding Officers.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931. 163

Artificer Engineers, however, being Warrant Officers, should make their applications in the same manner as that laid down for other officers of the Royal Navy.

7. Time and Place of Examination.-The times and places at which exam- inations are held are as follows:

Place. Government Marine Surveyor's Office.

Days. Every Tuesday of each week.

N.B.-The examination days are liable to occasional alteration.

8. Application for Examination.- Every applicant for examination must fill up a form of application, and pay the appropriate fee, at the Harbour Office, signing the declaration on the form of application in the presence of the Harbour Master. The form, properly filled in, together with the applicant's certificate of apprenticeship, testimonials, discharges, etc., should be lodged at least three days before the day of examination with the Harbour Office, who will forward these documents to the Examiner of Engineers.

The Examiner is, as a rule, responsible for seeing that the applications are in order and that the applicants' qualifications are sufficient.

9. Inquiries.-Persons wishing to inquire as to their eligibility for examination must fill up application forms, submit their papers, and pay the appropriate fees in the same way as applicants for examination.

10. Proof of Nationality.-Every applicant for a certificate of competency of any grade will be required to produce proof of nationality.

Proof of British nationality will, in ordinary circumstances, involve the production of a birth certificate or of a certificate of naturalisation. If an applicant for examination cannot produce such a certificate he should be asked to furnish such documentary evidence of nationality, or of birth and nationality of parents, as he may be able to obtain.

If the applicant is not a British subject he will as a rule, be able to produce some official document testifying to his nationality. If there is any doubt as to the authen- ticity of such document, the Examiner should consult the Consular Officer of the nation to which the applicant belongs. If necessary, the case should be remitted to the Prin- cipal Examiner for consideration.

11. Age. Should any doubt exist as to the age of an applicant, he will be required. to produce a certificate of birth.

12. Fee Must be Paid.-Applicants for examination, and persons inquiring as to their eligibility for examination, will be required to pay the examination fee before any step is taken towards inquiring into their services or testing their qualifications, etc. If any applicant is found not to be qualified, the fee will either be returned to him or placed to his credit until he is qualified.

13. Payment of Fees, and Penalty for Offering Gratuity.-The fee for examination must be paid at the Harbour Office. If an applicant offers a gratuity to any servant of the Department, he will be regarded as having committed an act of miscon- duct, and will not be allowed to be examined for twelve months.

14. Table of Fees.-The following fees, respectively, are payable on each occasion on which an applicant presents himself for examination, either for a certificate of competency as Engineer, or for the endorsement of a certificate:-

15. Fees not Returned on Failure.-If a candidate fails in his examination, no part of the fee he has paid will be returned to him.

16. Sea Service Must be Verified.-Service which cannot be verified by pro- per entries in the articles of agreement of the ships in which the applicants have served cannot be counted. In all cases the applicants' names must have been duly entered on the ship's Articles as Engineers in their proper ranks.

As discharges and testimonials may have to be forwarded to the Registrar General of Seamen for verification, it is desirable that they should be handed in, together with the form of application, as many days as possible before the date of examination at which the applicant desires to attend. In the absence of the necessary verification the applicant cannot be examined.

When certificates of discharge in the home or other trade which have not been officially issued at a Mercantile Marine Office are produced as evidence of any part of an applicant's qualifying service, they should be submitted by the Examiner to the Registrar General of Seamen for verification.

17. Service in Foreign Vessels -The testimonials of service of Engineers serving in foreign vessels, which cannot be verified by the Registrar-General of Seamen, must be confirmed either by the Consul of the country to which the ship in which the applicant served belonged, or by some other recognised official authority of that country; or by the testimony of some credible person on the spot, having personal knowledge of the facts required to be established. The production, however, of such proofs will not of necessity be deemed sufficient. Each case must be decided on its merits; and if the sufficiency of the proofs given appears to be at all doubtful, the point must be referred to the Chief Examiner.

18. Calculation of Service. -The applicant's service, as shown on his discharges, should be reckoned by the calendar month, i.e., the time included between any given day in any month and the preceding day of the following month, both inclusive. The number of complete months from the commencement of the period, ascertained in this way, should be computed, after which the number of odd days should be counted. The day on which the agreement commences as well as that on which it terminates should both be included and all odd days should be added together and reckoned at 30 to the month.

19. Gaps in Service.-The Examiner should be particularly careful to ascertain that there are no gaps in the applicant's service during which his conduct is not pro- perly accounted for, before he is allowed up for examination.

20. Testimonials; Workshop Service. --All applicants will be required to produce, in addition to the official discharge certificates, testimonials as to their workshop service and as to their service at sea. The testimonials as to workshop service must be signed by the employer, and must testify to the applicant's conduct and ability, and state what kind of work, he was engaged on (e.g. fitting, erecting, turning, machine work, etc.), and for how long. (See rule 35.)

21. Testimonials; Sea Service.-Every applicant should produce testimonials in respect of the qualifying period of his service signed, in each case, by the Chief Engineer under whom his service has been performed, stating his actual rank on watch, the number of engineers simultaneously on watch on the main propelling machinery, and the nature of the duties performed by him. When the applicant is a Chief Engineer he should produce testimonials signed by the Engineer Superintendent, or by the Managing Owner, or Secretary of the Company. It is desirable that the whole of the

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931. 165

applicant's sea service should be covered by testimonials certifying to his sobriety, ex- perience, ability, and general good conduct, but testimonials will be required for at least the last 18 months at sea preceding the date of the application to be examined.

    It is desirable that testimonials signed by Chief Engineers be endorsed by the Master or by the Engineer Superintendent; testimonials signed only by the company's Superintendent or other officials should not, as a rule, be regarded as sufficient.

    If, in any case, testimonials appear to have been withheld for improper or inade- quate reasons, full particulars should be reported by the Examiner to the Chief Ex-

aminer.

22. Physical Defects. When an applicant is observed to be hard of hear- ing, or is labouring under any other obvious physical defect, the signatories of his testi- monials are required to mention that defect specifically, and to state whether it in any way interfered with the efficiency of the applicant as an engineer on watch. When these modified testimonials are such as completely to satisfy the Examiner that the defect is not such as to interfere with the efficient discharge of the applicant's duties as engineer, the examination is proceeded with; otherwise the case is referred to the Chief Examiner.

    23. Penalty for Misconduct.-Applicants who have neglected to join their vessels after having signed Articles, or who have deserted their vessels after having joined, or who have been found guilty of gross misconduct, will be required to produce satisfactory proofs of two years' subsequent service and good conduct at sea, unless the Governor after having investigated the matter, should see fit to reduce the time.

    24. Foreign Engineers. -A foreign engineer cannot be examined for a First Class Certificate unless he has performed the sea-service stated in rule 31 with the re- quisite British Certificate. Service performed in foreign vessels may be accepted if the applicant can produce satisfactory testimonials as to conduct and character, and is able to prove that the service has been in the required capacities, and that during the period of service he has held a British Certificate of Competency of the grade required by the Rules (See rule 17).

    25. Knowledge of English essential.-All candidates, including foreigners. and British subjects of foreign extraction, must prove to the satisfaction of the Ex- aminers that they can speak and write the English language sufficiently well to perform the duties required of them on board a British vessel.

    26. Issue of Certificate.-If the candidate passes he will receive a certificate signed by the Governor. The candidate's testimonials and other papers will be returned to him when the examination is finished.

27. Service found to be Insufficient. -If, after a candidate has passed the examination, it is discovered on further investigation that his services are insufficient to entitle him to receive a certificate of the grade for which he has passed the certificate will not be granted to him; but if the Governor is satisfied that the error in the calcul- ation of the candidate's services did not occur through any fault or wilful misrepresent- ation on his part, he may either have the fee returned to him or have it placed to his credit. Should his services entitle him to a certificate of a lower grade it may be granted to him, and the difference, if any, between the fee paid by him for the superior certificate, and the fee payable for the inferior certificate will be returned to him or placed to his credit. The superior certificate will not be granted until the candidate has performed the amount of service in which he was deficient, and has been re-examined in all the subjects, unless the Governor sees fit to dispense with the re-examination.

28. Copy of Lost Certificate.-An applicant for a certified copy of a lost certificate of competency must fill in a form of application giving the particulars required, and hand it to the Harbour Master. A declaration as to the circumstances in which the certificate was lost must be made by the applicant before the Harbour Master. The Harbour Master will then transmit the form of application to the Registrar-General of Seamen, who will state thereon whether a fee is to be charged or not, and will forward a certified copy of the lost certificate for delivery to the applicaut.

166

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931.

No fee will be charged if the applicant can prove that the certificate was lost through shipwreck or fire.

(f) to be thoroughly conversant with the principles and practice of surface con- densation, superheating, and the working of steam expansively, and with the economical and efficient use of coal and oil fuel.

33. First Class Certificates without Second.-The Government may see fit to allow an applicant who has had no opportunity to obtain a Second Class Certificate, either Imperial or Colonial, to be examined for a First Class Ordinary certificate although he does not possess a Certificate of the lower grade, provided he is able to satisfy them as to the satisfactory character of his services; but these must be ample both as regards length and experience. As a rule, at least 4 years' sea service, a fair proportion of which must have been in a responsible capacity, and qualifying for a First Class. Certificate, will be required.

    If any such candidate fails to pass the examination for the First Class Certificate, but passes that for the lower grade, he may be given a Second Class Certificate of Com- petency, but no part of the fee will be returned. If he fails in practical knowledge, he may be re-examined for a Second Class Certificate only, subject to the usual regulations. relating to such failures.

34. Endorsement of Certificates.-The holder of a Motor Certificate may have it endorsed for service in steamships provided that he proves at least 12 months" service in foregin trade or 18 months in the home trade in a qualifying capacity in steamships of horse-power not less than that required by these Rules and passes the appropriate examination.

35. Workshop Service. -- A candidate is expected to have served not less than four years as apprentice Engineer or journeyman, at the making or repairing of steam or internal combustion engines such as would be recognised as affording useful training for a marine engineer. No time served before the age of 15 will be accepted.

Not less than two years of this period should have been devoted to fitting, erecting or repairing engines of suitable size, either in the works or outside, and the remaining two years may have been spent (1) on work of this nature; (2) on work in other branches of the trade, subject to the time allowances specified in the schedule below; (3) at an ap- proved technical school, subject to the conditions specified in rule 38.

SCHEDULE OF TIME ALLOWANCES in respect of workshop service, other than fitting, erecting or repairing, but performed in connection with engines of the nature indicated above. Total maximum allowance two years.

In the event of the apprenticeship time being extended to five years or more, four years at turning followed by one year at fitting or erecting may be accepted as qualify- ing.

This rule applies only to works at which the making and/or repairing of engines, boilers, etc., forms part of the regular business for which the works exist. Service at works where the repairing of engines, boilers, etc., is merely incidental to the running of plant, however large, which is used for the production of power for other machinery, etc., should be dealt with under rule 36, each case being considered on its merits.

36. Workshop Service where Engines of Suitable Size are not Made or Repaired.-Workshop service other than that mentioned in rule 35 may be accept- ed if it is considered useful training for a sea-going Engineer, but each case must be submitted to the Chief Examiner for consideration before the applicant is examined. For every 12 months of such service accepted, the applicant must have performed at least an additional three months' service on marine engines (steam or motor), either in the works, or at sea on regular watch on the main propelling machinery or on day work; and a longer additional period may be required if the deficient character of the service. warrants further compensation.

37. Service in Colonial and Foreign Workshops. Rules 35 and 36 apply to service in the United Kingdom only. Service in a Colonial or foreign workshop will not be accepted unless the Examiner is satisfied in each case that its value is sub- stantially equivalent to that of service performed in the United Kingdom. In cases where the Examiner is not satisfied that the value is equivalent, he should refer the matter to the Chief Examiner.

Workshop service in India is in no case to be taken as equivalent to more than four- fifths of the same period of service in the United Kingdom.

38. Technical Schools.-Time spent at an approved day Technical School, where there is an engineering laboratory, is, subject to the conditions mentioned in Ap- pendix A, accepted as equivalent to workshop service, usually in the ratio of three years in the Technical School to two years' workshop service, provided also that the applicant has taken the full engineering course, and can produce the Principal's certificate for regular attendance at all the approved classes, and for satisfactory progress.

Time spent in attending evening classes in Engineering at approved Technical Schools will similarly be allowed to count under the following conditions:-

(1) each applicant claiming an allowance for time spent in attending evening classes at a Technical School must produce a certificate signed by the Principal of the School to the effect that he has attended regularly at a definite class or classes, which should be specified, and has made satis- factory progress. This certificate must also state the total number of hours spent by the applicant in attending each class:

170

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931.

(2) time spent by the applicant in attending such classes as have a direct bear- ing on the training of a Marine Engineer will be reckoned at the rate of five hours to one day. The total number of days so obtained will then be accepted in lieu of a certain fraction of the same period of workshop service This fraction will be fixed for each school at the time of approval, and will generally be two-thirds:

(3) an applicant who has attended a Technical School in the evening, white being employed as an apprentice Engineer or journeyman during the day, must, in order that the school time may be accepted, produce satis- factory proof that he has spent the full working day in the works at which he is employed before attending the School. Such proof will usually take the form of a statement in the testimonial as to workshop service given by the employer.

Time spent in foreign technical schools can in no circumstances be recognised.

For list of approved technical schools and time allowed for attendance at each See Appendix A.

39. Sea-service.-The sea-service required by these Rules is, unless other- wise stated, service performed in foreign-going ships propelled by engines of at least the horse-power specified for the respective grades of Certificate. The nominal horse-power of a steamship, as given on the Certificate of Registry, may in all cases be accepted by the Examiners; or it may be determined by the following formula:--

N.H.P.

=

(3H+D2 V ̈ ̄ ̄ ̄S) V P 700

where H

D2

S

heating surface of main boilers in square feet, measured down to the level of

the fire bars, but excluding the front tube plate.

square of diameter of low pressure cylinder, or sum of squares of diameters

of cylinders in non-compound engines, measured in inches.

length of stroke of engines in inches.

P

presure of main boilers in pounds per square inch.

Service in the home or coasting trade is regarded as being equivalent to two-thirds of the same period of time served in foreign-going vessels except where other allowances are specified.

Service in ships trading entirely abroad will be accepted as equivalent to service in foreign-going ships, provided that the distance between the extreme ports visited during the course of the voyage is at least 500 miles. If the distance is less than 500 miles, the service will only be accepted as equivalent to service in the home trade.

""

"Service on regular watch means officers' watch keeping service on main propel- ling machinery for at least eight hours each day. In no case may time spent on clerical work or on fitting or overhauling machinery, either on regular watch or on day work, be regarded as qualifying watch keeping service.

In the case of applicants for Second Class Ordinary Certificates, service to qualify must be ou the main engines and boilers, not less than six months being spent on each of these two sections, if the service is not performed simultaneously on both.

In the case of applicants for First Class Certificates, qualifying service means, as a rule, service as senior engineer in charge of the entire watch on the main propelling machinery but service in charge of a boiler room only may be regarded as qualifying up to a maximum of 12 months. Service as a second in seniority in the engine room of a vessel propelled by two or more sets of engines may also be accepted, and this without restriction; but service in the engine room as assistant engineer below this rank may only be accepted at half the actual time value. Service to qualify must have been per- formed while in possession of a Second Class Certificate, except in the case for which provision is made in rule 33. Candidates who qualify by service as second in seniority. in the engine room or as assistant engineer below this rank will be subjected to a some- what more searching examination than those who have performed the required amount of service while in charge of a full watch.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931. 171

40. Marine Technical Schools. An applicant for either a Second Class or a First Class Ordinary Certificate who, within two years from the date of application to be examined, has attended an approved course, comprising general mathematical and scientific instruction, at a Technical School recognised by the Government as suitable for the training of Marine Engineers, will be allowed to count time so spent as equivalent to sea service usually in the ratio of three months at the Technical School to two months at Time so spent cannot be accepted as equivalent to more than one-sixth of the total sea service required for either certificate, but an applicant who has been allowed to count such time on examination for a Second Class Certificate will not be debarred from count- ing similar subsequent time on applying for examination for a First Class Certificate.

sea.

In every case in which an allowance is made for time spent at a Marine Technical School, the applicant will be required to produce the Principal's Certificate for continuous and regular attendance at all the approved classes, and for satisfactory progress.

The applicant must also produce his class note books, in order that The Examiner may satisfy himself that the applicant has followed the approved course of instruction, and that the remission of sea service claimed may be allowed accordingly.

Applicants for examination who claim remission of sea service should as a rule, make their claim on Form Exu. 3 at least three days before they desire to sit.

A list of the Marine Technical Schools recognised for this purpose is given in Appendix A.

41. Lake or River Service. --Service as watch-keeper on a lake or river vessel of not less than the required horse-power may be accepted under the following conditions for an Ordinary Certificate:

(a) the service will only count half as much as sea service; i.e., every two months of lake or river service is only equivalent to one month's foreign- going sea service:

(b) applicants for Second Class Certificates must prove that, in addition to lake or river service, they have had at least three months' qualifying service at sea in a foreign-going ship of not less than the horse-power specified in rule 29 (b), or four and a half months' similar service in the home trade; (c) applicants for First Class Certificates, in addition to lake or river service in vessels of not less than the horse-power named in rule 31, must prove that they have had at least six months' qualifying service at sea, with a Second Class Engineer's Certificate, in foreign-going vessels of not less than the horse-power specified, or nine months' similar service in the home trade.

42. Service in Cable Ships-A candidate for examination, a part of whose qualifying service has been performed in cable ships, will be required to produce, in addition to the usual evidence of sea service, a statement or certificate from the owners of the vessel showing the amount of time actually spent at sea. If the time so spent constitutes or exceeds two-thirds of the total time on articles, this total time may be accepted in full as qualifying service, but in the event of the actual sea service falling below this proportion, the deficiency must be made up by additional service at sea before the total time on articles can be accepted in full as qualifying service.

43 Service in Auxiliary Screw Ships.-Service as Engineer performed on board auxiliary screw whalers and other vessels with auxiliary power not less than that required for a Second Class Certificate may be allowed to count as qualifying for ex- amination for a Second Class Engineer's Certificate to the extent of one-half the time the vessel is actually at sea. If the applicant is able to prove that the main engines were running for longer than this, he will be allowed to count the whole of such extended time.

44. Service in Dredgers, Fishing-boats, Tug-boats, or Pilot-vessels.- Service in sea-going dredgers, fishing-boats, or tug-boats, and in pilot-vessels when on their station or when going to or returning from the same, may be accepted under the

172 THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931.

   following conditions:-Two months of such service is only equivalent to one month's qualifying service in a foreign-going vessel. Applicants for Second Class Certificates may perform all their sea service in sea-going dredgers, fishing-boats, tug-boats, or pilot- vessels, but they must have been on regular watch on the main propelling machinery, the horse-power of which must not be less than that required. Candidates for First Class Certificates must, while in possession of a Second Class Certificate, have served in vessels of at least the horsepower named in rule 31, and have been in charge of the whole of a watch on the main machinery. They must also have served, in a qualifying cap- acity, for not less than six months in a foreign-going ship, or nine months in a home- trade ship.

Where an Engineer is employed on a fishing or other vessel, and is required to do stoking or other work not usually performed by an Engineer in the Mercantile Marine, such service cannot be accepted as qualifying.

The Examiners should in all cases satisfy themselves that service ou fishing boats, when claimed as qualifying for a certificate as Engineer, is of a nature similar to that performed by Engineers in the Mercantile Marine.

     45. Service in Yachts. Service performed in yachts, either within or beyond home-trade limits, may be accepted as equivalent to two-thirds of the time performed in foreign-going trading vessels, provided that the applicant's name is entered on the vessels' Articles, and that he can prove, to the satisfaction of the Examiner, that the time claimed was actually served at sea

     Applicants for Second Class Certificates may perform all their service in yachts, but the applicants must have been on regular watch on the main machinery, and the vessels must be of not less than the horse-power stated in rule 29 (b).

     Applicants for First Class Certificates must have served in vessels of the requisite horse-power, and must have been in regular charge of the main machinery. They must also have served for at least three months in a qualifying capacity on board a suitable foreign-going ship. This additional service will, however, not be required in the case of an applicant who has served for 27 months as First Engineer, or for 3 years as a Second Engineer, of a yacht of the requisite power.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931. 173

    50. Tables to be Cleared.-Before commencing the examination, the tables and desks must be cleared of all scraps of paper, or books that are not used in the ex- amination, and care should be taken that the candidates while in the examination room do not have in their possession any book or paper, except as specified in rules 53 and 54. A sheet of blotting paper will be issued to each candidate with the first examination paper, and it must be returned to the Examiner when the last paper is completed each day. The Examimer should be careful to see that the blotting paper has not been used by the candidate in solving his problems, or for conveying information to other candi- dates.

    51. Drawing Instruments.-Drawing boards and T squares will be provided by the Government, but the applicants will have to bring with them any drawing instru- ments they may require.

52. Order of Examinations.-At the examinations for First and Second Class Ordinary Certificates, papers on Practical Mathematics, Drawing, and Engineering Know- ledge are given, and the candidates are finally questioned verbally on their Practical Knowledge.

    Mathematics and Drawing are omitted in the case of examination for the endorse- ment of a Certificate for converse service in the same grade.

The papers will, as a rule, be distributed in the following order:

53. Rules to be observed during the Examination :-

    I. Candidates must not have with them any books, notes, memoranda or paper other than that supplied for use at the examination. If any candidate has brought any such notes, etc., with him he must hand them to the Examiner before beginning his work.

II. Perfect silence must be observed during the examination.

    III. Candidates are advised to read the questions carefully, and to confine their attention to the problems as presented, without dealing with extraneous matter.

This advice is applicable to all parts of the examination, but especially to the Drawing.

    IV. The numbers of the questions to which the working has reference should be clearly indicated, but the questions themselves should not be copied. All work should be done in ink, except as specified on the subject-paper for Drawing.

174

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931.

V. Suitable recognition will be given for clear statements, reasoning and calcula- tions in solving the problems.

VI. Candidates may be required to write a report, or letter, in which English com- position and legible hand-writing will be taken into account; and bad grammar, faulty spelling and errors of punctuation will be discredited.

VII. Additional sheets of paper will be provided by the Examiner, if required. Only one side should be used, and the candidate should sign his name, and write the port and date, at the foot of each sheet. These particulars should also be given on the cover of each answer-book and on each sheet of drawing paper used.

VIII. Reference to the mathematical tables provided for the purpose is allowed, except in respect of questions which distinctly state that such reference is not per- missible.

IX. Candidates may, if they wish, use slide-rules for checking their calculations, but in each case the full working necessary for arriving at the result must be shown in ink, otherwise no significance will be attached to the answer.

X. The question papers and mathematical tables, which are the property of the Government, must not be written upon or defaced in any way.

XI. No candidate may leave his seat or the examination room without permission; and if he leaves the room he will not be permitted to go on with any sheet or problem which he had in hand before leaving the room.

XII. Candidates must not communicate with each other or use any unfair means.

XIII. A candidate guilty of any breach of these rules will be subjected to all the penalties of failure, and may be excluded from further examination for such period as the Governor may decide.

54. Mathematical Tables (Rule VIII.). --All candidates for examination may use the books of mathematical tables provided, and the Examiner will be careful to observe that they are not used to conceal memoranda prepared for these examinations. No other books will be allowed unless the question set specially states that a book may be referred to.

55. Leaving Examination Room (Rule XI).-In the event of a candidate being permitted to leave the room, the Examiner should substitute other questions for those which have not been attempted.

56. Penalty for Breach of Rules (Rule XIII).-The circumstances attending any breach of the Rules or Regulations, or any disorderly or improper conduct in or about the examination room, should be reported immediately to the Chief Examiner, who will in due course advise the Examiner as to any penalty the Government may decide to inflict.

57. Marking Worked Papers.-The value of the work done in all four sections of the First and Second Class examinations (Practical Mathematics, Drawing, Engineer- ing Knowledge, Verbals) will be assessed and recorded in accordance with the following scale :-

Marks 0 50

""

49-Weak, denoted by symbol W.

59 Consider

60- 74-Good

""

""

C.

G.

S.

""

""

""

75-100-Superior

""

In order to pass, candidate's work should be "Good" in all four sections, but it must be "Good or "Superior" in Verbals. A "Consider" in either the Practical Mathematics, Drawing or Engineering. Knowledge paper may be counterbalanced by a Superior" in any of the other sections. Two "Considers" or one "Weak" will entail failure.

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 1931. 175

58. Verbals.-The Examiner should deal with practical, rather than theoretical, questions in this division of the examination, and no candidate should be failed in the verbal examination without having been well cross-questioned on the points on which failure takes place.

Questions on the management of engines and boilers at sea, the duties of the super- vising Engineer, the work to be done to the engines, boilers and auxiliary machinery in port, and the periodical examinations of the working parts, should form part of the verbal examination.

It is considered of great importance that candidates for examination should have an extensive knowledge of the particulars of actual casualties which have occurred at sea, and be able to state how these might have been prevented, and how they were remedied.

Should a candidate have had no personal experience of any defects, and be unable to describe casualties to machinery which may have occurred in the experience of others, he should be closely questioned as to his knowledge of boiler and engine construction and repair.

As it is possible for a candidate to obtain pass marks in Practical Mathematics, al- though apparently unable to calculate horse-power from indicator diagrams, strength of boiler seams, etc., and, further, as a drawing may be passed as such although containing faults of a practical description, Examiners should, as far as practicable, scrutinise the worked papers, and in each candidate's verbal examination include questions on such practical deficiencies as may appear in his papers.

59. Examination Results. The results of examinations should be communic- ated to all candidates.

60. Voluntary Retirement to be discouraged.-Voluntary retirement from any examination should be discouraged. Each First and Second Class candidate should be taken through the whole examination,. at least on first presenting himself, in order that his ability in all four sections of the examination may be ascertained and recorded.

61. Failure in Examination. Failure in subjects ignorance of which might lead an Engineer to do something actually unsafe in the management of any part of a ship's machinery (e.g., questions on manipulation and reading of the water-gauge, the danger of fire and explosion in motor vessels, etc.), will be regarded as failure in practical knowledge, and any candidate so failing may not present himself for re-examination until be can produce proofs of six months' further service at sea in a qualifying capacity, as Engineer on watch on the main engines or boilers of a foreign-going ship, or its equivalent in the home trade (nine months), subsequent to the date of failure.

Should a candidate fail through ignorance of fundamental principles, or on account of general defectiveness throughout the examination, he should not be re-examined for any certificate until after a lapse of six months. In such a case, if the candidate's defi- ciencies indicate the necessity for further study rather than practical experience, he need not be required to perform additional sea service.

In ordinary cases of failure, the candidate may present himself for re-examination at any time, but if he fails three times in any part or parts of the examination within any period of three months, he will not be re-examined until after a lapse of three months from the date of the last failure.

In any cases of failure the re-examination must embrace all the subjects.

Report of the Director of the Royal Observatory, Hong Kong.

Part II.-Law and Order :---

Report of the Land Officer.

QUESTIONS.

4. The Hon. Mr. J. P. BRAGA, pursuant to notice, asked the following question

"Will the Honourable the Colonial Secretary state whether any reduction is contemplated this summer in the facilities usually afforded to residents in Hong Kong and at Kowloon in the matter of public bathing beaches?"

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:-

The use made of the public bathing beaches in Kowloon has decreased so much in the last year or two that no provision was made for this purpose in the Estimates for 1931. The principal reasons for the decrease appear to be the growth of bathing clubs and the provision by caterers of dressing accommodation with facilities for teas and refreshments. As concerns Tai Wan beach, this section of foreshore is now the subject of sale negotiations and is not, therefore, in any case, available. No public matsheds will be erected there or at Laichikok.

On the island it is proposed, for the same reason, to give up the public bathing sheds at Repulse Bay and at North Point, and to erect only smaller accommodation at Kennedy Town, where there is still some demand. The beach at Repulse Bay will continue to be kept clean and precautions, as before, will be taken for the protection of bathers.

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

1. Has the attention of Government been drawn to the newspaper report of a serious motor-car accident happening at Kowloon on the night of 23rd March at a point in Waterloo Road close to its junction with Nathan Road, where the road is described as "extremely narrow and not parti- cularly well lighted at night"?

2. With a view to minimising the risk of similar accidents in future, will the Government consider the advisability of improving the public light- ing of roadways within the residential areas in Kowloon ?

THE HONG KONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, MAY 8, 1931.

The Colonial Secretary replied as follows:--

1. The answer to the first question is in the affirmative.

259

2. With regard to the second, the Government considers that the residential areas of Kowloon are adequately lighted. The portion of Waterloo Road in which the accident occurred is not yet completed and, as an uncompleted road, motorists should use it with caution. The covering of the nullah is being extended eastwards as rapidly as funds permit, and in due course the roadway will be opened to the full width now possessed by the section going to the east of the railway.
