5. The Supreme Court shall have power to stay any action brought against any alien enemy in any case in which it may seem to the Court to be desirable to do so in the interests of justice on account of the impossibility of against obtaining proper instructions from such alien enemy owing alien enemy. to the state of war which exists between His Majesty and the State to which such alien enemy belongs.

Objects and Reasons.

One object of this Bill is to prevent actions being brought against liquidators appointed under the Principal Ordinance in respect of claims which are not disputed. It is obviously undesirable that the estate should be saddled with the costs of such unnecessary actions, and it would be unfair to the other creditors, and against the spirit of the Principal Ordinance, if not against its express provi- sions, if the plaintiff in any such action were to obtain any priority thereby.

A somewhat similar provision exists in bankruptcy law, where no action can be commenced or continued except with the leave of the Court and on such terms as the Court may impose. The authority proposed in the Bill is the Governor and not the Court because the general scheme of the Principal Ordinance is a winding up under the control of the Governor while in bankruptcy the winding up is under the supervision of the Court.

It should be remembered that the winding up under the Principal Ordinance differs from the winding up in bankruptcy in one very important point, for the winding up in bankruptcy results eventually in the discharge of the debtor from all claims provable in the bankruptcy, while the winding up under the Principal Ordinance will not result in any such discharge. Accordingly, refusal under the proposed Ordinance to allow an action to be brought would not determine the remedies of the creditor against the alien enemy.

Another object of the Bill is to provide expressly that actions against liquidators shall bind the alien enemies whose affairs are being wound ap.

The Bill also gives the Court power to stay actions against liquidators or against alien enemies where the interests of justice seem to require that such should be done on account of the impossibility of obtaining proper instructions owing to the existence of a state of war.

(1) My Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, having taken into consideration the fact that it may be necessary to forbid all entrance to certain ports of the Empire, this is to give Notice that on approaching the shores of the United Kingdom, or any of the ports or localities of the British Empire, referred to in Part III. of this Notice, a sharp look-out should be kept for the signals described in the following paragraph, and for the vessels mentioned in paragraph (5), Part II., of this Notice, and the distinguishing and other signals made by them. In the event of such signals being displayed, the port or locality should be approached with great caution, as it may be apprehended that obstructions may exist.

(2) If entrance to a port is prohibited, three RED vertical lights by night, or three RED vertical balls by day, will be exhibited in some conspicuous position, in or near to its approach, which signals will also be shown by the vessels indicated in paragraph (5), Part II., of this Notice.

If these signals are displayed, vessels must either proceed to the position marked "Examination Anchorage" on the Admiralty charts and anchor there, or keep the sea.

(3) At all the ports or localities at home or abroad referred to in Part III. of this Notice, search-lights are occasionally exhibited for exercise.

Instructions have been given to avoid directing moveable search-lights during practice on to vessels under way, but mariners are warned that great care should be taken to keep a sharp look-out for the signals indicated in paragraph (2) above, when search-lights are observed to be working.

PART II.

Examination Service.

(4.) In certain circumstances it is also necessary to take special measures to examine. vessels desiring to enter the ports or localities at home or abroad, referred to in Part III. of this Notice.

(5) In such case, vessels carrying the distinguishing flags or lights mentioned in paragraph (7) will be charged with the duty of examining ships which desire to enter the ports and of allotting positions in which they shall anchor. If Government vessels, or vessels belonging to the local port authority, are found partrolling in the offing, mer- chant vessels are advised to communicate with such vessels with a view to obtaining information as to the course on which they should approach the Examination Anchorage. Such communication will not be necessary in cases where the pilot on board has already received this information from the local authorities.

   (6) As the institution of the Examination Service at any port will never be publicly advertised, especial care shall be taken in approaching the ports, by day or night, to keep

· a sharp look-out for any vessel carrying the flags or lights mentioned in paragraph (7), and to be ready to "bring to

bring to" at once when hailed by her or warned by the firing of a

gun or sound rocket.

   In entering by night any of the ports mentioned in Part III., serious delay and risk will be avoided if four efficient all round lamps, two red and two white, are kept available for use.

   (7) By day the distinguishing flags of the Examination Steamer will be a special flag (white and red horizontal surrounded by a blue border) and a blue ensign.

Also, three red vertical balls if the port is closed.

(b) Three white vertical lights if the port is open.

   The above lights will be carried in addition to the ordinary navigation lights, and will show an unbroken light around the horizon.

(8) Masters are warned that, before attempting to enter any of these ports when the Examination Service is in force, they must in their own interests strictly obey all instructions given to them by the Examination Steamer. In the absence of

In the absence of any instruc- tions from the Examination Steamer they must proceed to the position marked "Examina- tion Anchorage on the Admiralty Charts and anchor there, or keep the sea.

Whilst at anchor in the Examination Anchorage, Masters are warned that they must not lower any boats (except to avoid accident), communicate with the shore, work cables, move the ship, or allow anyone to leave the ship, without permission from the Examina- tion Steamer.

(9) In case of fog, Masters are enjoined to use the utmost care, and the Examination Anchorage itself should be approached with caution.

(10) Merchant vessels when approaching ports are especially cautioned against making use of private signals of any description, either by day or night: the use of them will render a vessel liable to be fired on.

(11) The pilots attached to the ports will be acquainted with the regulations to be followed.

Sweeping Operations.

   H.M. Vessels are constantly engaged in sweeping operations off ports in the United Kingdom.

   Whilst so engaged, they work in pairs connected by a wire hawser, and are con- sequently hampered to a very considerable extent in their manoeuvring powers.

   With a view to indicating the nature of the work on which these vessels are engaged, they will show the following signals:

   A black ball at the foremast head and a similar ball at the yardarm, or where it can best be seen, on that side on which it is dangerous for vessels to pass.

   For the public safety, all other vessels, whether steamers or sailing craft, must keep out of the way of vessels flying this signal, and should especially remember that it is dangerous to pass between the vessels of a pair.

Circular No. 681.

PILOT SERVICE.

I. Attention is invited to the 13th, 14th, and 15th paragraphs of Executive Order of July 9, 1914, providing "Rules and Regulations for the Operation and Navi- gation of the Panama Canal and Approaches Thereto, Including All Waters Under Its Jurisdiction," reading as follows:-

(13) Pilotage for vessels in transit through the Canal will be free, nor will they be charged pilotage for entering or leaving a terminal port when it is for the sole purpose of passing through the Canal; but should any such vessel, while in Canal waters, discharge or receive freight or passengers, or take on board supplies, provisions, stores or fuel, or remain for the purpose of effecting repairs, or make either terminal a port of call, she may be liable for entrance or departure pilotage, as the Canal authorities may direct.

(14) Pilotage in and out of the Atlantic and Pacific terminals of the Canal is compulsory, and all vessels, unless otherwise exempted, will be compelled to take a regular Government pilot upon entering or leaving. The fact that the master or any officer of any vessel holds a pilot's licence for any of the waters of the Canal Zone will not authorise the vessel to enter without taking a Government pilot.

(15) No person, steamer, company or corporation will be allowed to maintain or employ pilots in Canal waters for the exclusive use of their own or any other ves- sels; all pilots, without exception, must be duly authorized and licensed by the Canal authorities and be in the employ of the Canal. This shall not be interpreted to mean that the Canal authorities shall be prohibited from issuing restricted pilot licences for small craft in Canal waters, or any other that they may see fit.

2. The charge for pilotage will be based upon the maximum draft of the vessel, and will be at the rate of $1 per foot or fraction thereof, but no fraction will be con- sidered unless it equals or exceeds six inches, in which case the full charge for one foot will be imposed for such fraction.

3. In case a pilot be taken outside the Atlantic breakwaters, an additional fee of $10 will be charged. Pilots will board vessels just inside the Atlantic breakwaters, and at the seaward end of the buoyed channel on the Pacific end.

4. The above charges will become effective August 1, 1914.

Objects and Reasons,

The object of this Bill is to endeavour to place upon a more regular and satisfactory footing than at present obtains the law and the administrative arrangements relative to the payment and collection of the duty leviable upon the estates of deceased persons.

29

The existing law, contained in Ordinance No. 2 of 1897 and Ordinance No. 16 of 1901, sections 22 to 27, is not altogether satisfactory. The definitions of "property are not exhaustive, and there exists no effective machinery for enforcing a full disclosure of the property of a deceased person. The Bill therefore defines " property in detail and provides the Commissioner with suitable means "for obtaining all the necessary information.

The Bill also contains rigorous provisions imposing upon various classes of persons against whom under the present law it would be impossible to proceed the obliga- tion of seeing, so far as they are concerned, that the law shall be carried out; the principle involved being that it is the duty of persons cognisant of property, a portion of which belongs to the revenue of the Colony, to assist Government in ensuring that its revenue shall not be defrauded. In this connection the Bill also provides that a schedule of property shall be attached to every Probate or Letters of Administration and throws an obligation on any person who deals with the property of a deceased person after the grant of Probate or Letters of Administra- tion, of making certain that all the property with which such person in fact deals is actually included in the schedule attached to the grant.

Section

""

1 is formal.

2 makes certain minor amendments.

3 defines the meaning of certain terms used in

the Bill.

4 provides for the levy of estate duty sub- stituting this term for the existing "Pro- bate Duty".

5 sets out the property which is deemed to pass

on death.

6 exempts from the payment of estate duty transactions for money consideration, pro- perty outside the Colony, and shares on local registers.

7 provides for the aggregation of the value of all a deceased person's property in respect of which duty is payable for the purpose of determining the rate at which estate daty shall be charged.

8 sets out the manner in which estate duty is to be paid and contains the new provision that interest shall be payable upon estate duty from the date of death to the date of payment. A similar provision exists in England.

9 introduces the new allowance of an exemp- tion for funeral expenses, which have not up to the present time been allowed to be deducted.

10 provides for the filing of accounts, and gives the Commissioner special powers to sum- mon persons before him, under penalty, in case of default, in order to enable him to obtain a full disclosure of the property of a deceased person. It also gives him power to inspect properties and obtain valuations thereof.

11 provides that no grant shall issue until after estate duty has been paid. Similar provision to that in the existing law is made for cases in which the value of an estate cannot be ascertained immediately ; and a new clause is inserted giving power to the Commissioner to allow the post- ponement of payment of estate duty in cases where the exaction of immediate pay- ment would be a hardship.

12 and 13 re-enact in slightly altered form similar provisions in the existing law, with the addition of clauses providing for the calculation of estate duty on the values of interests in expectancy and interests ceasing on death.

14 introduces the new principle that estate duty shall be a charge on the property in respect of which it is leviable. It also gives power to raise, by means of sale, mortgage or terminable charge, the amount payable for estate duty.

15 provides for the apportionment of the estate duty between the parties liable, with liberty to apply to the Court in case of dispute.

16 gives power to the Governor-in-Council to remit the payment of estate duty equitable grounds.

on

17 contains new provisions giving any person aggrieved by the decision of the Commis- sioner a right of appeal to the Supreme Court.

166

Section 18 introduces an important innovation calcu- lated to prevent the non-disclosure of property. A schedule of the property of a deceased person must be annexed to the grant and it is the duty of any person before dealing with the property of a deceased person to satisfy himself that the property with which he proposes to deal is included in this sche ule: A penalty of $500 is prescribed for non-compliance with the provisions of this section.

2:

19 sub-section (1) re-enacts the existing law Sub-section (2) is new and is inserted with a view to prevent the concealment of the property of a deceased person by making it obligatory for persons con- cerned to inform the Commissioner of the existence of such property at the ear- liest possible moment after such deceased person's death,

20 throws the onus of disclosing the property of a deceased person, in certain cases, on the person having knowledge of such property. The cases are those in which deceased persons have had an interest in a shop, bank or other business under- taking. The Commissioner has little op- portunity of discovering such an interest unless it is disclosed; evasion has been, it is thought, very prevalent in the past. It is hoped to minimise this evasion by imposing upon the manager of such shop, bank or business the duty of making a

disclosure.

21 is an innovation and provides for the filing of adequate accounts by an Executor should he be called upon so to do by the Commissioner. In the past the only manuer in which an executor could be compelled to file any accounts was by means of an application made to the Court by a party interested. This procedure was cumbrous and very rarely used.

22 gives the Commissioner power to reduce any

penalty incurred under the Bill.

The First Schedule amends certain portions of the existing law which, with one exception, are dealt with by this Bill. This exception is the amendment of section 19 of the Probate Ordinance, 1897. At present the Official Administrator can only deal summarily with estates not exceeding $50 in value. This limit has been found in practice to be too low and by this amendment it is raised to $250.

The Second Schedule sets out the rates at which Estate Duty shall be charged. These rates are the same as those in force at present.

The Third Schedule contains tables of the values of annuities for use in the calculation of estate duty on life interests. The tables are taken from the law in force in Fiji.

Objects and Reasons.

The Soeurs de Saint Paul de Chartres (best known as the French Convent) have acquired land in the Colony for the purposes of carrying on their charitable work. Dif- ficulties have sen, and may hereafter arise, in holding and dealing with such land as it has, at present, to be vested in the name of some individual in trust for the Convent. In order to get over such difficulties it is desired that the Convent should be incorporated by Ordinance. Similar incorporation has taken place in the past in the case of other Missions for similar reasons.

The present Bill effects such incorporation and contains the necessary provisions for evidencing the authority of the Mother Superior for the time being to act for the corporation in relation to such land.

Short title.

Leave

necessary for legal proceedings.

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Alien Enemies (Winding up) Amendment Ordinance, 1915, and shall be read and construed as one with the Alien Enemies (Wind- ing up) Ordinance, 1914, (hereinafter called the Principal Ordinance), and with the Alien Enemies (Winding up) Amendment Ordinance, 1914.

(4.) No further proceeding of any kind whatsoever shall without the permission of the Governor be taken in any action or other legal proceeding which was or shall have been begun against any such alien enemy before the appointment of a liquidator to wind up the trade or per- sonal affairs of such alien enemy.

(6.)

(2.) Any such application shall be heard and determined in such manner as the Court may direct, and it shall be lawful for the Court to hear such parties and persons as it may think fit.

(3.) The costs of any such application shall be in the discretion of the Court.

(4.) No claim for any costs awarded against such liquidator on any such application shall have any priority over any other claim against such liquidator in respect of the winding up.

7. Any liquidator appointed under the Principal Ordi- nance shall with the permission of the Governor be entitled to discharge out of the assets in his hand any liability of the alien enemy whose trade or personal affairs such liquidator was appointed to wind up, although such liability may have arisen out of a transaction entered into by such alien enemy on behalf of a branch of his trade outside the Colony and may not be a liability which would ordinarily have been discharged by such alien enemy within the Colony.

8.-(1.) In sub-sections (11), (12) and (13) of section 5 of the Alien Enemies (Winding up) Ordinance, 1914, as enacted tion thereon. by section 7 of the Alien Enemies (Winding up) Amend- ment Ordinance, 1914, the total assets realised or brought to credit by the liquidator shall be deemed to include all credit balances in any bank in any account formerly operated no. by the alien enemy whose trade or personal affairs such liquidator was appointed to wind up, and all sums of money due and payable to any such alien enemy by his compra- dore immediately before the appointment of such liquidator, but no liquidator shall be entitled to any remuneration on any such balance or sum of money without the express permission of the Governor.

Goodwill

and trade marks.

(2.) It shall be within the absolute discretion of the Governor to determine whether any remuneration on any such balance or sum of money shall be drawn.

(3.) Any remuneration on any such balance or sum of money drawn by any liquidator before the commencement of this Ordinance shall, unless the Governor otherwise direct, forthwith be repaid or placed to the credit of the alien enemy whose trade or personal affairs such liquidator was appointed to wind up.

9. No liquidator shall without the express permission of the Governor assign away the goodwill of the trade or of any part of the trade which he was appointed to wind up, or any trade mark used in connection therewith.

Objects and Reasons.

One object of this Bill is to prevent actions being brought against liquidators appointed under the Principal Ordinance in respect of claims which are not disputed. It is obviously undesirable that the estate should be saddled with the costs of such unnecessary actions, and it would be unfair to the other creditors, and against the spirit of the Principal Ordinance, if not against its express provi- sions, if the plaintiff in any such action were to obtain any priority thereby.

A somewhat similar provision exists in bankruptcy law, where no action can be commenced or continued except with the leave of the Court and on such terms as the Court may impose. The authority proposed in the Bill is the Governor and not the Court because the general scheme of the Principal Ordinance is a winding up under the control of the Governor while in bankruptcy the winding up is under the supervision of the Court.

It should be remembered that the winding up under the Principal Ordinance differs from the winding up in bankruptcy in one very important point, for the winding up in bankruptcy results eventually in the discharge of the debtor from all claims provable in the bankruptcy, while

3

171

the winding up under the Principal Ordinance will not result in any such discharge. Accordingly, refusal under the proposed Ordinance to allow an action to be brought would not determine the remedies of the creditor against the alien enemy.

It is also provided that the requirement of the Gover- nor's permission shall apply to actions brought directly against alien enemies whose affairs are being wound up, or whose affairs it is expedient should be wound up, as well as to actions brought against their liquidators.

On the other hand it is proposed that liquidators must obtain the permission of the Governor before beginning any legal proceeding in respect of the winding up, so that the permission of the Governor will be required for actions by liquidators as well as for actions against liquidators.

Another object of the Bill is to provide expressly that actions against liquidators shall bind the alien enemies. whose affairs are being wound up.

The Bill also gives the Court power to stay actions against liquidators or against alien enemies where the interests of justice seem to require that such should bẹ done on account of the impossibility of obtaining proper instructions owing to the existence of a state of war.

It also confers on liquidators the right, with the permis- sion of the Governor, to apply to the Court for directions. on any matter arising out of the winding up.

It also gives power to the Governor to allow liquidators to discharge liabilities incurred outside the Colony. It is not intended that this power if given should be exercised to the prejudice of the discharge of liabilities incurred in the Colony.

The Bill also provides that the assets realised or brought to credit by the liquidators shall include credit balances at banks or in the hands of compradores, but it gives the Governor discretion to determine whether any remuneration shall be drawn on any such balances.

It also provides that liquidators must not sell any good- will or trade marks without permission.

the winding up under the Principal Ordinance will not result in any such discharge. Accordingly, refusal under the proposed Ordinance to allow an action to be brought would not determine the remedies of the creditor against the alien enemy.

It is also provided that the requirement of the Gover- nor's permission shall apply to actions brought directly against alien enemies whose affairs are being wound up, or whose affairs it is expedient should be wound up, as well as to actions brought against their liquidators.

On the other hand it is proposed that liquidators must obtain the permission of the Governor before beginning any legal proceeding in respect of the winding up, so that the permission of the Governor will be required for actions by liquidators as well as for actions against liquidators.

Another object of the Bill is to provide expressly that actions against liquidators shall bind the alien enemies. whose affairs are being wound up.

The Bill also gives the Court power to stay actions against liquidators or against alien enemies where the interests of justice seem to require that such should bẹ done on account of the impossibility of obtaining proper instructions owing to the existence of a state of war.

It also confers on liquidators the right, with the permis- sion of the Governor, to apply to the Court for directions. on any matter arising out of the winding up.

It also gives power to the Governor to allow liquidators to discharge liabilities incurred outside the Colony. It is not intended that this power if given should be exercised to the prejudice of the discharge of liabilities incurred in the Colony.

The Bill also provides that the assets realised or brought to credit by the liquidators shall include credit balances at banks or in the hands of compradores, but it gives the Governor discretion to determine whether any remuneration shall be drawn on any such balances.

It also provides that liquidators must not sell any good- will or trade marks without permission.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

   No. S. 111.-The following Bill was read a first time at a Meeting of the Council held on the 13th May, 1915:-

A BILL

Short title.

Amendment

of Ordinance No. 16 of 1914, s. 2.

INTITULED

An Ordinance to amend the Dentistry Ordi-

nance, 1914.

BE it enacted by the Governor of Hongkong, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, as follows:-

1. This Ordinance may be cited as the Dentistry Amendment Ordinance, 1915, and shall be read and con- strued as one with the Dentistry Ordinance, 1914, herein- after called the Principal Ordinance, and the Principal Ordinance and this Ordinance may be cited together as the Dentistry Ordinances, 1914 and 1915.

2. Section 2 of the Principal Ordinance is amended by the omission of the words "the administration of any general or local anesthetic" in the definition of the term "Dental operation".

Objects and Reasons.

Though it is probable that the words which this Bill proposes to repeal were inserted in the Principal Ordi- nance with the object of restricting the administration of anaesthetics by unqualified persons, yet the fear has been expressed that they might be interpreted by some regis- tered dental surgeons or exempted persons as a definite invitation to administer general anesthetics, and that they might afford an undesirable defence in case of an untoward result following the administration of a general anesthetic by a dentist with no training in this important branch of medical science. The effect of the proposed amendment will be to assimilate the law of the Colony to the law at present in force in the United Kingdom on this point.

   SIR,-I have the honour to inform you that, according to a telegram received yester- day from Batavia, the Netherlands-Indian Government has declared Hongkong an infected port on account of plague.

   The importation of the following articles from Hongkong or transshipped at this port is temporarily prohibited :

(1.) Wearing apparel, old and worn clothes, household effects for daily use, used bedding, unless these goods are transported as personal luggage or in consequence of removal.

197

(2.) Rags.

Refuse of new goods coming direct from the weaving-mills, from workshops where apparel is made or from bleaching-establishments, artificial wool, and cuttings of new paper, are not considered as rags.

  All goods, of which the importation is not prohibited, shall be disinfected on arrival, if in the opinion of the Health Officer of the Port they have been infected.

  Particulars about the medical inspection of the ship on arrival in a Netherlands- Indian port, and of the passengers and baggage, and about the formalities to be complied with by the masters of ships arriving in Netherlands-India within 21 days after their departure from a plague-infected port, etc., will be given on application at the Nether- lands Consulate General at Hongkong, where an English version of the Netherlands-Indian Quarantine Ordinance can be perused by those concerned.

  I beg however to draw the attention of the shipping to the fact that the quarantine in Netherlands-India against ships coming from Hongkong will be up to 21 days accord- ing to the state of health on board the ships, but subject to exemption on production of certificates legalised by the Netherlands Consul-General at Hongkong. Those certifi- cates are issued by the doctor's firm of Messrs. JORDAN, FORSYTH, GRÖNE & AUBREY.

  Regarding the free admittance in the 2nd and 3rd class ports of Netherlands-India of ships provided with the above certificate, coming from Hongkong, the captains of those ships should bear in mind that:-

1. the passengers on board those ships are submitted in those ports to a medical supervision during five days after the arrival of the ship;

2. the crew is submitted to an equal supervision and can only leave the ship in that period for reasons of service with the approval of the Harbour Master.

Objects and Reasons.

The object of this Bill is to make better provision-

(a.) For the examination of persons entering and

leaving the Colony.

(b.) For the deportation of persons ordered to quit the Colony under the powers conferred by the Order in Council of the 26th October, 1896. (c.) For the registration of visitors at hotels, board-

ing-houses, and clubs.

(d.) For the detection and punishment of persons who attempt to leave the Colony without per- mission or to evade the examination contem- plated by the Bill.

The clauses of the Bill are self-explanatory, but it may be mentioned that Clause 14 is practically a copy of Article 3 of the Aliens Restriction (Amendment) Order, 1915, and that the immediate intention is to restrict the operation of Clause 10 to such persons as are required to obtain

               passes at present.
