Secretary.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 10.

The following report from the Director of the Observatory, is published for general information

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 7th January, 1888.

FREDERICK STewart, Colonial Secretary.

RESULTS OF FURTHER INVESTIGATIONS CONCERNING TYPHOONS.

A pamphlet on The Law of Storms in the Eastern Seas, adapted for the use of the shipping ar embodying practically all that is now known about typhoons, was issued in September last year.

A distinguished German nieteorologist in reviewing this pamphlet makes reference to the similarit which exists between the typhoons in the Far East and the hurricanes of the West Indies. An lifferences which may be ascertained must, I believe, be ascribed to dissimilarity between the coastline and islands, as the former. more especially, are found to have so great an influence on atmospheri isturbances.-The West India hurricanes may be divided into four classes. Those of the first class pas WNWestward to the south of Hayti and strike the coast of the mainland south of the norther promontory of Yucatan. Those of the second class pass generally NWestward and enter the Unite States. While those of the third class recurve generally between the West Indies and the Bermuda and pass away to the NE. Hurricanes of the fourth class, moving obliquely towards the equator in low latitude. are very rare.

My investigations on the typhoons in the past four years furnish already an insight into the sub-classes into which the different kinds of typhoons may be divided in the future. Thus the simi- larity between the paths of Typhoons V of 1885 and IV of 1886, Typhoons VI of 1885 and X of # 1886, Typhoons XVII of 1884 and XVI of 1886, Typhoons X of 1885 and XVII of 1886 may be pointed out, the latter being particularly remarkable, so much so that doubts might reasonably have been entertained about its reality if the case had occurred but once.

Stormpaths in tropical seas are of a very simple nature,-much more so than in the case of minor depressions anywhere or storms in the temperate zones,-as long as the course lies far from any shore. That irregularities occur may be seen from such paths as are furnished by Typhoons VIII and XV of 1886. However there are while the typhoon is far from the shore seldom observations enough available to indicate small irregularities with certainty.

Whether a typhoon ever crosses the Pacific and Canada and reaches Europe is not known for certain. It is of course within the range of possibility, but must be doubted till clearly proved.

The coasts of China and Corea are now well furnished with stations. Wenchow in 28° 0′ N, 120° 35′ E with observations made at 9 a, 3 p and 9 p daily was added on the 1st September, 1886, and Chemulpo in 37° 29′ N, 126° 37′ E on the 1st November, 1886. Observations made every three hours were commenced on the 5th July, 1885, and were discontinued on the 27th February, 1887, in Port Hamilton in 34° 0′ N, 127° 20′ E.

The part of the Far East best supplied with meteorological stations is of course the Empire of Japan. One of the localities from which very poor information was hitherto available was the Philippine Archipelago, but the subject has now been taken up officially since a new Government Observatory was constructed. Meantime the want has been to some extent supplied by telegrams twice a day from Manila, by English volunteer-observers in Bolinao and Iloilo and by extracts from the logbooks of ships trading in the Archipelago.

Thunderstorms occur occasionally all round the centre of a typhoon in the ring of high pressure and gentle gradients beyond the area where the wind is fresh. Nearer the centre but before the wind begins to rise the clouds generally assume the form of Roll-cumulus which prevails till full typhoon force is reached. The mean monthly height of the mercurial column is scarcely lowered in conse- quence of the typhoons as the high pressure all round the typhoon counter-effects the low pressure near the centre. The monthly mean solar radiation is lowered both with regard to intensity and to duration, while the true air-temperature, the tension of water-vapour and the rain-fall are increased. The mean force of the wind is increased very considerably in months when typhoons approach the neighbourhood.

When the wind rises in a typhoon it blows in gusts and the mercury heaves. in the barometer. In a strong gale the mercury fluctuates frequently three hundredths of an inch at intervals of perhaps about four minutes. But there is no heaving when the wind is not strong even if the centre is very close to a vessel. When the wind has attained storm-force it blows in fierce squalls of perhaps about ten minutes duration, while the mercury heaves up and down as much as eight hundredths of an inch. In these squalls the wind veers or backs in the direction towards hich it is going to change owing to the progressive motion of the centre of the typhoon. As a general rule it may be said that the mer- cury gives a jump upwards when the wind begins to veer in the squall. Then it drops down and gives another jump upwards, while the winds shifts back to its original direction. But the mercury has been observed to behave in the opposite way occasionally and this point deserves furthon in mo

rule a fraction of a degree and sometimes much more. But the wind does not return to quite its original direction. There is frequently a change. At the time when the centre is pissing nearest to a vessel, a fierce squall is frequently entered in the log-book. The existence of a line of squalls perpen- dicular to the path of a storm-centre is well known in the storms that cross the British Isles.

   It is remarked that typhoons often arrive in quick succession followed by intervals without typhoons, but during the height of the typhoon-season there is generally a typhoon to be found some- where at any time. The following table exhibits the number of typhoons that occurred during the past three years within squares of 2° extent in longitude and latitude :-

  South of 11° latitude the typhoons move on an average NWestward. Between 11° and 15° they move NN Westward between 15° and 22° Northwards, between 22° and 30° NNEastward and north of 30° about NEastward. But it must be remembered that there is comparatively little information available about the paths to the East of the Philippines. If the data were as extensive there as in the China Sea the southern half of the mean path would probably be shifted to the East, and the mean curve would look more like a parabola. The mean curve given above must therefore be considered to represent the mean path of typhoons encountered, not the actual mean path of typhoons. By and by we may be able to lay down the mean path of each class of typhoons, and of typhoons in each month of the year.

The longitude in which typhoons are most frequently encountered, is 125° E. The latitude is 180 N. But there is a slight secondary maximum in 331° N.

The gradients, expressed in parts of an inch in 15 miles, corresponding to different forces (f) of the wind in typhoons have been calculated (ge), and compared with the values (g.) deduced from a comparison of the observed values by aid of Ferrel's formula in the following form:-

in which designates the latitude, i the complement of the angle between the wind and the gradient, v the velocity of the wind in miles an hour, r the distance from the centre in miles, B the height of the barometer in inches, reduced to 32° and mean sea-level, and t the temperature of the air in degrees Fahrenheit. B is assumed=29, t=80, 4-20° and i-45°:

    The first part of the expression for go exceeds the second as long as the force of the wind is below a moderate gale. Thereafter the second part, depending upon the centrifugal force generated by the rotation, exceeds the first, which may be neglected when storm-force is reached and has no appreciable influence when it is blowing with full typhoon force

The strongest typhoon during the past three years and perhaps as strong as any hurricane ever en- countered was that experienced on board of the S. S. Airlie in 12° N on the 16th July, 1885, when the gradient rose to about an inch in 15 miles. To gain an idea of the velocity of the wind in that typhoon the simple formula :-

gr 2b

  suffices. According as r is assumed to have been 50 or 60 miles, we obtain v equal to 158 or 173 miles, and the velocity of the wind must therefore have reached about 150 miles an hour.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Suraames, will be published and sold separately.

2. The corporation is created for the purpose of main- taining the said Church for religious worship according to the rites and usages of the Church of England.

3.

5. The appointment or election of Trustees and Auditors shall take place annually, and all Trustees and Auditors so appointed or elected shall continue in Office until a fresh appointment or election is made. Any Trustec or Auditor may be re-elected or re-appointed.

6. The election of Trustees and Auditors shall take place at a general meeting of the seat-holders of the Church, hereinafter called the Annual Meeting, to be summoned by the Trustees for the time being, during the month of April or May in each year. At least ten days' notice of such meeting shall be given by notices to be exhibited at each doorway used by the Congregation of the Church.

7. Two Trustees, being Members of the Church of England and seat-holders of the Church, and one other person to act as Auditor shall be elected at each Annual Meeting, and the out-going Trustees shall notify the Colonial Secretary of such election.

8. The Governor shall then appoint four persons, being Members of the Church of England, to be Trustees, and one person to be an Auditor. The Auditors, whether appointed or elected, shall not at the same time be Trustees.

9. In case of any vacancy occurring among the Trustees or Auditors by death, absence from the Colony, or other incapacity, it shall be lawful for the seat-holders or the Governor, as the case may be, to fill up such vacancy in like manner as the original appointment was made under Section 7 or 8 of this Ordinance.

Meetings.

14. The Trustees may call a General Meeting of Seat- General holders at any time, and shall call such a meeting within fourteen days after receiving any requisition in writing to that effect signed by not less than twenty seat-holders.

15. At least ten days notice of the time and place of holding such General Meeting shall be given by notices conspicuously posted at each doorway of the Church used by the Congregation. The Colonial Chaplain, if present, shall preside at such meeting; and no General Meeting of seat-holders, except the Annual Meeting, or for the pur- poses of Section 22 of this Ordinance, shall be held unless at least twenty seat-holders are present.

16. The right of voting at every General Meeting of seat-holders shall be vested in renters of sittings in the Church who shall have duly paid the rent of their sitttings. Provided always that no such seat-holder shall on any occasion be allowed to give more than one vote.

17. The allotment of sittings in the Church in force at the time of coming into operation of this Ordinance shall be continued until the same shall be altered under the provi- sions of this Ordinance. And such allotment and all future allotments shall be subject to the following reservations of sittings for which no rent shall be charged, namely;-

(1.) One third part of the whole number of the sittings in the Church for the use of the poorer classes of the community.

(2.) Such sittings for the Governor of the Colony, the Colonial Chaplain and his family, the Officer Commanding the troops, and Officers of the gar- rison as the Trustees shall deem sufficient and may be able to provide.

18. The Trustees shall make arrangements for placing the whole Church at the disposal of any Military Chaplain for garrison services at such hours as may not interfere with the usual and ordinary services of the Church.

19. The Trustees shall, at each Annual Meeting, assess and fix a rent for each sitting in the Church, and may at any time make agreements or contracts with any person desirous to engage the same according to such assessment, and such rent shall be in force from the 1st day of April in the year in which it is fixed until the thirty first day of March next following. The rents of all sittings in the Church shall be paid in advance.

20. If it shall at any time appear to the Trustees that such Annual Assessment is insufficient to defray the necessary charges and costs of the Church, they may call a General Meeting in the manner provided by Section 15 of this Ordinance, and, with the assent of a majority at such Meeting, such majority not being less than twenty persons in number, may substitute such higher assessment as to such majority may appear sufficient.

21. No seat-holder shall, under any pretence whatever, be deprived of the free use of his sitting at all times when the Church shall be open for public worship, except when the Church shall be used for a Military Service or under the following circumstances ;---

(1.) If he fail to pay the rent of such sitting in advance within three months after it shall have been demanded by the Trustees.

(2.) If he fail to pay the difference between the rate assessed on such sitting and a higher assessment made under Section 20 of this Ordinance within one month after such difference shall have been demanded by the Trustees.

(3.) If he designedly and habitually interrupt the celebration of divine worship or disturb any part of the Congregation within the Church by any unseemly noise, gesture or behaviour.

22. In any of the three cases provided for in the last Section, the Trustees may issue a Monition to such defaulter or offender, and in case such person shall not forthwith pay the sums claimed, or desist from the practice complained of, the Trustees may call a General Meeting of the seat- holders, and such Meeting may authorise the Trustees to declare the sitting or sittings rented by the person com- plained of to be vacant.

24. The Trustees shall keep accounts of all money received and paid by them under the last Section, which accounts the Auditors or either of them may inspect at all reasonable times. Such accounts shall be brought down to the thirty-first day of March in each year, and then closed and audited by the Auditors. The audited account shall be laid before the Annual Meeting, and published as soon after such meeting as possible in the Government Gazette.

  Minutes of the Proceedings of the Sanitary Board at a meeting held in the Board Room on Wednesday, the 21st of December, 1887.

PRESENT:

The Honourable the Surveyor General, (Chairman).

The Registrar General.

The Colonial Surgeon.

Dr. PATRICK MANSON, LL.D.

The Honourable A. P. MCEWEN.

Major T. C. DEMPSTER.

Dr. JAMES CANTLIE.

Mr. WM. EDWARD CROW, (Secretary).

Dr. Ho KAI.

ABSENT:

The Minutes of the meeting held on the 6th of December, 1887, were read and confirmed.

  1. A return of the Summonses applied for by the Inspectors of Nuisances during the fortnight ending December 17th, 1887, was laid on the table by the Secretary. The Return showed that 52 prosecutions had been instituted, that in 51 cases convictions had been obtained, and that fines to the amount of $120 had been inflicted.

  2. A petition from the meat-stall holders in the Sokonpoo market praying for the re-establishing of the Eastern Slaughter-house was considered. Resolved.--The Board are of opinion that it is very desirable to concentrate the landing and slaughtering of all cattle in one single place in order to secure efficient supervision, and recommend therefore that for the present no new slaughter-house or cattle pen be erected in the Eastern district more especially as the consumption of meat in that district appears to be limited to 2 bullocks and 18 pigs a day.

Mr. McEwEN dissented from the recommendation as he considered that it would be a great boon to the inhabitants of the Eastern district, including the Military who are quartered there, to have a separate slaughter-house and also because be considered the present slaughtering place at West Point inadequate.

  3. Returns by the Registrar General showing the number of births and infantile deaths during the Months of September and October were laid on the table by the Secretary.

  4. The Secretary submitted a statement of the number of cases of Small-pox reported at the Sanitary Office during the months. Resolved,That a Sub-Committee consisting of the Colonial Surgeon, Dr. MANSON, Dr. CANTLIE, the Registrar General, and the Acting Sanitary Inspector be appointed to consider the steps that should be taken for stamping out the disease.

The Board then adjourned.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a

practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

    First, north part of east side of Cheval, estimated to contain oysters sufficient to employ 100 boats for thirteen days, with average loads of 10,000 oysters each per day.

Second, south part of west side of Cheval, estimated to contain oysters sufficient to employ 100 boats for twenty days, with average loads of 8,000 oysters each per day.

Third, north part of west side of Cheval, estimated to contain oysters sufficient to employ 100 boats for twenty days, with average loads of 10,000 oysters each per day.

    Fourth, south part of east side of Cheval, estimated to contain oysters sufficient to employ 100 boats for twenty days' fishing, with average loads of 10,000 oysters each per day. [See statements of valuations below.]

    It is therefore recommended that such boat owners and divers as may wish to be employed at the said fishery should be at Silavatturai on or before February 12 next; and it is notified that the first day's fishery will take place on or about February 15, if possible.

    The fishery will be conducted on account of Government, and the oysters put up to sale in such lots as may be deemed expedient.

The arrangements of the fishery will be the same as have been usual on similar occasions. All payments to be made in ready money in Ceylon currency.

No deposit will be received for a less suin than Rs. 250.

   Who, having communicated to each other their respective full powers, found in good and due form, have agreed upon the following Articles :-

ARTICLE I.

   The Contracting States are constituted into an Union for the protection of the rights of authors over their literary and artistic works.

ARTICLE II.

   Authors of any of the countries of the Union, or their lawful representatives, shall enjoy in the other countries for their works, whether published in one of those countries or unpublished, the rights which the respective laws do now or may hereafter grant to natives.

   The enjoyment of these rights is subject to the accomplishment of the conditions and formalities prescribed by law in the country of origin of the work, and cannot exceed in the other countries the term of protection granted in the said country of origin.

   The country of origin of the work is that in which the work is first published, or if such publication takes place simultaneously in several countries of the Union, that one of them in which the shortest term of protection is granted by law.

For unpublished works the country to which the author belongs is considered the country of origin of the work.

ARTICLE III.

The stipulations of the present Convention apply equally to the publishers of literary and artistic works published in one of the countries of the Union, but of which the authors belong to a country which is not a party to the Union.

ARTICLE IV.

   The expression "literary and artistic works" comprehends books, pamphlets, and all other writings; dramatic or dramatico-musical works, musical compositions with or without words; works of design, painting, sculpture, and engraving; lithographs, illustrations, geographical charts; plans, sketches, and plastic works relative to geography, topography, architecture, or science in general; in fact, every production whatsoever in the literary, scientific, or artistic domain which can be published by any mode of impression or reproduction.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 21ST JANUARY, 1888.

ARTICLE V.

65

Authors of any of the countries of the Union, or their lawful representatives, shall enjoy in the other countries the exclusive right of making or authorizing the translation of their works until the expiration of ten years from the publication of the original work in one of the countries of the Union. For works published in incomplete parts ("livraisons") the period of ten years commences from the date of publication of the last part of the original work.

For works composed of several volumes published at intervals, as well as for bulletins or collections ("cahiers") published by literary or scientific Societies, or by private persons, each volume, bulletin, or collection is, with regard to the period of ten years, considered as a separate work.

In the cases provided for by the present Article, and for the calculation of the period of protection, the 31st December of the year in which the work was published is admitted as the date of publication, ARTICLE VI.

Authorized translations are protected as original works. They consequently enjoy the protection stipulated in Articles II and III as regards their unauthorized reproduction in the countries of the Union. It is understood that, in the case of a work for which the translating right has fallen into the public domain, the translator cannot oppose the translation of the same work by other writers.

ARTICLE VII.

Articles from newspapers or periodicals published in any of the countries of the Union may be reproduced in original or in translation in the other countries of the Union, unless the authors or publishers have expressly forbidden it. For periodicals it is sufficient if the prohibition is made in a general manner at the beginning of each number of the periodical.

This prohibition cannot in any case apply to articles of political discussion, or to the reproduction of news of the day or current topics.

ARTICLE VIII.

As regards the liberty of extracting portions from literary or artistic works for use in publications destined for educational or scientific purposes, or for chrestomathies, the matter is to be decided by the legislation of the different countries of the Union, or by special arrangements existing or to be concluded between them.

ARTICLE IX.

The stipulations of Article II apply to the public representation of dramatic or dramatico-musical works, whether such works be published or not.

Authors of dramatic or dramatico-musical works, or their lawful representatives, are, during the existence of their exclusive right of translation, equally protected against the unauthorized public representation of translations of their works.

The stipulations of Articles II apply equally to the public performance of unpublished musical works, or of published works in which the author has expressly declared on the title-page or com- mencement of the work that he forbids the public performance.

ARTICLE X.

7.

Unauthorized indirect appropriations of a literary or artistic work, of various kinds, such as adaptations, arrangements of music, &c., are specially included amongst the illicit reproductions to which the present Convention applies, when they are only the reproduction of a particular work, in the same form, or in another form, with non-essential alterations, additions, or abridgments, so made as not to confer the character of a new original work.

It is agreed that, in the application of the present Article, the Tribunals of the various countries of the Union will, if there is occasion, conform themselves to the provisions of their respective laws.

ARTICLE XI.

In order that the authors of works protected by the present Convention shall, in the absence of proof to the contrary, be considered as such, and be consequently admitted to institute proceedings against pirates before the Courts of the various countries of the Union, it will be sufficient that their name be indicated on the work in the accustomed manner.

    For anonymous or pseudonymous works, the publisher whose name is indicated on the work is entitled to protect the rights belonging to the author. He is, without other proof, reputed the lawful representative of the anonymous or pseudonymous author.

It is, nevertheless, agreed that the Tribunals may, if necessary, require the production of a certificate from the competent authority to the effect that the formalities prescribed by law in the country of origin have been accomplished, as contemplated in Article II.

ARTICLE XII.

Pirated works may be seized on importation into those countries of the Union where the original work enjoys legal protection.

The seizure shall take place conformably to the domestic law of each State.

ARTICLE XIII.

It is understood that the provisions of the present Convention cannot in any way derogate from the right belonging to the Government. of each country of the Union to permit, to control, or to prohibit, by measures of domestic legislation or police, the circulation, representation, or exhibition of any works or productions in regard to which the competent authority may find it necessary to exercise that right.

66 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 21ST JANUARY, 1888.

ARTICLE XIV.

Under the reserves and conditions to be determined by common agreement,

                                     * the present Convention applies to all works which at the moment of its coming into force have not yet fallen into the public domain in the country of origin.

ARTICLE XV.

It is understood that the Governments of the countries of the Union reserve to themselves respectively the right to enter into separate and particular arrangements between each other, provided always that such arrangements confer upon authors or their lawful representatives more extended rights than those granted by the Union, or embody other stipulations not contrary to the present Convention.

ARTICLE XVI.

An international office is established, under the name of "Office of the International Union for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works."

This Office, of which the expenses will be borne by the Administrations of all the countries of the Union, is placed under the high authority of the Superior Administration of the Swiss Confederation, and works under its direction. The functions of this Office are determined by common accord between the countries of the Union.

ARTICLE XVII.

   The present Convention may be submitted to revisions in order to introduce therein amendments calculated to perfect the system of the Union.

Questions of this kind, as well as those which are of interest to the Union in other respects, will be considered in Conferences to be held successively in the countries of the Union by Delegates of the said countries.

It is understood that no alteration in the present Convention shall be binding on the Union except by the unanimous consent of the countries composing it.

ARTICLE XVIII.

Countries which have not become parties to the present Convention; and which grant by their domestic law the protection of rights secured by this Convention, shall be admitted to accede thereto on request to that effect.

   Such accession shall be notified in writing to the Government of the Swiss Confederation, who will communicate it to all the other countries of the Union.

   Such accession shall imply full adhesion to all the clauses and admission to all the advantages provided by the present Convention.

ARTICLE XIX.

Countries acceding to the present Convention shall also have the right to accede thereto at any time for their Colonies or foreign possessions.

   They may do this either by a general declaration comprehending all their Colonies or possessions within the accession, or by specially naming those comprised therein, or by simply indicating those which are excluded.

ARTICLE XX.

   The present Convention shall be put in force three months after the exchange of the ratifications, and shall remain in effect for an indefinite period until the termination of a year from the day on which it may have been denounced.

   Such denunciation shall be made to the Government authorized to receive accessions, and shall only be effective as regards the country making it, the Convention remaining in full force and effect for the other countries of the Union.

ARTICLE XXI.

   The present Convention shall be ratified, and the ratifications exchanged at Berne, within the space of one year at the latest.

   In witness whereof, the respective Plenipotentiaries have signed the same, and have affixed thereto the seal of their arms.

Additional Article.

    The Plenipotentiaries assembled to sign the Convention concerning the creation of an International Union for the protection of literary and artistic works have agreed upon the following Additional Article, which shall be ratified together with the Convention to which it relates:-

    The Convention concluded this day in no wise affects the maintenance of existing Conventions between the Contracting States, provided always that such Conventions confer on authors, or their lawful representatives, rights more extended than those secured by the Union, or contain other stipu- lations which are not contrary to the said Convention.

In witness whereof, the respective Plenipotentiaries have signed the present Additional Article. Done at Berne, the 9th day of September, 1886.

Final Protocol.

    In proceeding to the signature of the Convention concluded this day, the undersigned Plenipoten- tiaries have declared and stipulated as follows:

    1. As regards Article IV, it is agreed that those countries of the Union where the character o artistic works is not refused to photographs, engage to admit them to the benefits of the Con- vention concluded to-day, from the date of its coming into effect. They are, however, not bound to protect the authors of such works further than is permitted by their own legislation, except in the case of international engagements already existing, or which may hereafter be entered into by them.

    It is understood that an authorized photograph of a protected work of art shall enjoy legal pro- tection in all the countries of the Union, as contemplated by the said Convention, for the same period as the principal right of reproduction of the work itself subsists, and within the limits of private arrangements between those who have legal rights.

    2. As regards Article IX, it is agreed that those countries of the Union whose legislation impli- citly includes choregraphic works amongst dramatico-musical works, expressly admit the former works to the benefits of the Convention concluded this day.

It is, however, understood that questions which may arise on the application of this clause shall rest within the competence of the respective Tribunals to decide.

    3. It is understood that the manufacture and sale of instruments for the mechanical reproduction of musical airs which are copyright, shall not be considered as constituting an infringement of musical copyright.

4. The common agreement alluded to in Article XIV of the Convention is established as follows:-

    The application of the Convention to works which have not fallen into the public domain at the time when it comes into force, shall operate according to the stipulations on this head which may be contained in special Conventions either existing or to be concluded.

In the absence of such stipulations between any countries of the Union, the respective countries shall regulate, each for itself, by its domestic legislation, the manner in which the principle contained in Article XIV is to be applied.

5. The organization of the International Office established in virtue of Article XVI of the Con- vention shall be fixed by a Regulation which shall be drawn up by the Government of the Swiss Con- federation.

The Official language of the International Office will be French.

The International Office will collect all kinds of information relative to the protection of the rights of authors over their literary and artistic works. It will arrange and publish such information.

It

will study questions of general utility likely to be of interest to the Union, and, by the aid of documents placed at its disposal by the different administrations, will edit a periodical publication in the French language treating questions which concern the Union. The Governments of the countries of the Union reserve to themselves the faculty of authorizing, by common accord, the publication by the Office of an edition in one or more other languages if experience should show this to be requisite.

?

   The International Office will always hold itself at the disposal of members of the Union, with the view to furnish them with any special information they may require relative to the protection of literary and artistic works.

   The Admistration of the country where a Conference is about to be held, will prepare the pro- gramme of the Conference with assistance of the International Office.

   The Director of the International Office will attend the sittings of the Conferences, and will take part in the discussions without a deliberative voice. He will make an annual Report on his administra- tion, which shall be communicated to all the members of the Union.

The expenses of the Office of the International Union shall be shared by the Contracting States. Unless a fresh arrangement be made, they cannot exceed a sum of 60,000 fr. a year.

                                                 This sum may be increased by the decision of one of the Conferences provided for in Article XVII.

The share of the total expense to be paid by each country shall be determined by the division of the Contracting and acceding States into six classes, each of which shall contribute in the proportion of a certain number of units, viz.:-

   These coefficients will be multiplied by the number of States of each class, and the total product thus obtained will give the number of units by which the total expense is to be divided. The quotient will give the amount of the unity of expense.

   Each State will declare, at the time of its accession, in which of the said classes it desires to be placed.

   The Swiss Administration will prepare the Budget of the Office, superintend its expenditure, make the necessary advances, and draw up the annual account, which shall be communicated to all the other Administrations.

6. The next Conference shall be held at Paris between four and six years from the date of the coming into force of the Convention.

The French Government will fix the date within these limits after having consulted the Inter- national Office.

7. It is agreed that, as regards the exchange of ratifications contemplated in Article XXI, each Contracting Party shall give a single instrument, which shall be deposited, with those of the other States in the Government archives of the Swiss Confederation. Each party shall receive in exchange

of the proces-verbal of the exchange of ratifications, signed by the Plenipotentiaries present. The present Final Protocol, which shall be ratified with the Convention concluded this day, shall be considered as forming an integral part of the said Convention, and shall have the same force, effect, and duration.

     THE undersigned Plenipotentiaries, assembled this day to proceed with the signature of the Convention with reference to the creation of an International Union for the protection of literary and artistic works, have exchanged the following declarations:-

     1. With reference to the accession of the Colonies or foreign possessions provided for by Article XIX of the Convention.

     The Plenipotentiaries of His Catholic Majesty the King of Spain reserve to the Government the power of making known His Majesty's decision at the time of the exchange of ratifications.

     The Plenipotentiary of the French Republic states that the accession of his country carries with it that of all the French Colonies.

     The Plenipotentiaries of Her Britannic Majesty state that the accession of Great Britain to the Convention for the protection of literary and artistic works comprises the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and all the Colonies and foreign possessions of Her Britannic Majesty.

     At the same time they reserve to the Government of Her Britannic Majesty the power of announcing at any time the separate denunciation of the Convention by one or several of the following Colonies or possessions, in the manner provided for by Article XX of the Convention, namely:-

     India, the Dominion of Canada, Newfoundland, the Cape, Natal, New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia, and New Zealand.

     2. With respect to the classification of the countries of the Union having regard to their contri- butory part to the expenses of the International Bureau (No. 5 of the Final Protocol):

The Plenipotentiaries declare that their respective countries should be ranked in the following classes, namely:-

Germany in the first class. Belgium in the third class, Spain in the second class. France in the first class.

Great Britain in the first class.

Haiti in the fifth class.

Italy in the first class.

Switzerland in the third class.

Tunis in the sixth class.

The Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Liberia states that the powers which he has received from his Government authorize him to sign the Convention, but that he has not received instructions as to the class in which his country proposes to place itself with respect to the contribution to the expenses of the International Bureau. He therefore reserves that question to be determined by his Government, who will make known their intention on the exchange of ratifications.

In witness whereof, the respective Plenipotentiaries have signed the present proces-verbal. Done at Berne, the 9th day of September, 1886.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

SANITARY BOArd Room, 24th January, 1888.

79

SIR,---I have the honour to submit for the information of the Government the following report on the steps that have been taken to meet the epidemic of small-pox now raging in the Colony and to furnish in the form of an appendix a few tables showing the rise, decline, and subsequent growth of the disease from the beginning of last year.

1.- HOSPITAL ACCOMMODATION.

In the early part of December when it became evident to the Civil Medical Staff that the disease was taking an epidemic form and that the permanent hospital with 8 beds at West Point would not suffice for the number of cases that would probably be sent there for treatment, a matshed with provi- sion for 16 patients was erected within the Small-pox Hospital grounds. In a few days this building was full, and as the ground allotted for small-pox wards would not allow the addition of any more wings, a part of the Civil Hospital recreation ground was enclosed to admit of the erection of two matsheds with appliances for 50 and 25 patients respectively. The Goverment Small-pox Hospital therefore provides for the reception of 99 patients. On Saturday, the 21st instant, there were 52 beds available for fresh cases.

In addition to this, the Government have sanctioned the conversion of the top storey of the Lunatic Asylum into wards for the treatment of European female patients. Of the 5 beds so provided 3 were unoccupied on the 21st instant.

As a reserve, the Lazaretto at Stone Cutters' Island, the use of which had been temporarily lent to the Military Authorities, has been vacated by the soldiers, and is now available for use at any mo- ment if required.

    The Tung-wa Hospital authorities state in reply to an enquiry by the Registrar General that 76 patients can, if necessary, be treated in their small-pox wards in Taipingshan. On the 21st there were 26 vacancies in this institution.

The total Hospital accommodation, exclusive of the Lazaretto, therefore, provides for 180 cases or one bed for about every 1000 of the estimated Civil Chinese and European population of the whole Colony.

2.-COMPULSORY NOTIFICATION.

On the 13th December the draft of a proposed Bye-law to be made under section 12 of Ordinance 7 of 1883, for making the notification of small-pox compulsory, was drawn up and circulated for the favourable consideration of the Members of the Sanitary Board. This regulation, which met with the unanimous approval of the Board, received the sanction of the Governor in Council on the 17th ultimo, and was forthwith published in English and Chinese in the newspapers and further promulgated by the distribution of posters and handbills throughout the Colony.

The issuing of this new Bye-law has enabled the staff to obtain precise information as to the course of the outbreak and to take steps for the disinfection of premises that could not possibly have been done in the absence of compulsory notification.

3.-VACCINATION.

    The Sub-Committee of the Sanitary Board appointed on the 21st of December to consider this matter and consisting of the following:-

The Colonial Surgeon,

Dr. PATRICK MANSON, Dr. JAMES CANTLIE, The Registrar General, and the undersigned,

met the next day at the Alice Memorial Hospital and resolved:-

1. That vaccination stations be established at the Government Civil Hospital, the Alice Memorial Hospital, and another in the Wan-tsai district, and that the Tungwa Hospital authorities be invited to conduct vaccinations daily.

2. That a sum of money be set aside to be used, if necessary, for rewarding parents who might be willing to bring their children for the removal of vaccine after a successful operation.

3. That the community be informed by Proclamation in English, Portuguese, and Chinese of the places and hours of vaccination as soon as arrangements could be completed for securing the necessary supplies of vaccine lymph.

In order to give effect to the recommendations of the Sub-Committee, letters were despatched to the Colonial Secretary, the Honorary Secretary of the Alice Memorial Hospital, and to the Committee of the Tung-wa Hospital, and after receiving favourable replies in support of the Sub-Committee's re- commendations, a sum of $50 was lodged at both the Civil and Alice Memorial Hospitals to be used for inducing parents to bring their children for furnishing a supply of lymph; and notifications in

80

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 28TH JANUARY, 1888.

English, Portuguese, and Chinese were freely circulated informing the public that vaccinations would be conducted daily at these institutions between the hours of 2 and 3 P.M.-Saturdays and Sundays · excepted.

The Tung-wa Committee informed the Registrar General that their Doctors considered it unneces- sary to vaccinate every day, but that they would be happy to co-operate with the Board and vaccinate as often as possible. A notice in Chinese was at once issued by the Committee informing the public of the vaccination days in Victoria, Aberdeen, Yaumati, and Shaukiwan, and calling on persons of all ages to attend without delay. Parents were especially enjoined to bring their children. The Tung-wa Committee are themselves paying the gratuities offered to mothers for bringing their babies for fur- nishing the supply of lymph.

The following table shows the number of vaccinations already performed:-

From October 23rd, 1887, to January 9th, 1888,

225

Total,....

..1,666

I have no information as to the percentage of successful vaccinations to operations performed. The scarcity of tube lymph has rendered it difficult for the various vaccinators to conduct as large a number of operations as would seem desirable, and the offering of a reward of $1 to parents, for allowing the withdrawal of lymph from their children after a successful operation, has only met with a limited degree of success.

The Board is indebted to the Manager of the Hongkong Dispensary for much information con- cerning the supplies of lymph expected to arrive during the next few months, and, for placing at its disposal on very liberal terms, 100 tubes of Japanese calf lymph which has been chiefly employed by the Colonial Surgeon and the Superintendent of the Civil Hospital as a source of supply for the vac- cination of the Police and the prisoners in Victoria Gaol.

4. LYMPH SUPPLY AND CULTIVATION.

Messrs. A. S. WATSON and Co. state in reply to an enquiry by the Board that, 500 tubes of infant lymph or part thereof will probably arrive by the next English Mail, and that 12 tubes will arrive by every succeeding Contract Mail for one month, after which 100 tubes will arrive by every English and French Mail.

In addition to this, the Government are obtaining from Australia through the assistance of Messrs. BUTTERFIELD & SWIRE 30 tubes of calf lymph which will probably arrive by the S.S. Chingtu within a fortnight. A further supply is also expected by every "China Navigation" steamer leaving Australia within two months after the departure of the Chingtu.

  An experiment is being made by the Inspector of Live Stock to cultivate calf lymph. Two calves have been obtained and lodged in the observation shed at Kennedy Town, but Mr. Ladds, who has used for the operations on these animals specimens representing two shipments of Japanese calf lymph, is as yet unable to speak positively as to the success or, failure of the operations. If the calf lymph fails, it will be necessary to inoculate the animal with infant lymph.

5. DISINFECTION OF WASH-CLOTHES.

  The native washermen were summoned by the Registrar General more than a week ago, and examined as to the practicability of this measure and all expressed their readiness to disinfect the various clothes sent to their establishment to be washed. Accordingly, a 2 gallon jar of Jeyes' Fluid with instructions in Chinese as to its use as a disinfectant of laundry-linen has been issued to each washermen to the number of more than 60. The Registrar General has made arrangements for the regular visitation by the District watchmen of the wash-houses to see that the instructions of the Board are carried out. To prevent damage being done to articles of a delicately coloured nature, which can, with no great difficulty be washed by household servants, a notification has been issued warning the public to exercise judgment in sending such fabrics to the laundries.

6. DISINFECTION OF HOUSES, &c.

  As a general rule whenever a case of small-pox has occurred in a house the room vacated by the patient is at once fumigated by burning sulphur therein. In some cases this fumigation is not done until many days have elapsed since the disease first made its appearance. This is due to the fact that in a large percentage of cases, the patient remains under treatment in the house and consequently no disinfection of the tenement is possible until the patient has recovered. In some Chinese cases the registration of the death is the only notification, consequently a delay of several days may occur be- tween the date of the removal of the body and the day of fumigation.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 28TH JANUARY, 1888.

81

The following is the procedure when a notification of small-pox reaches this office from a Police Staton :--

(a.) If the patient expresses a desire to go into hospital, or if a certificate from a Medical practitioner is received to the effect that the patient is improperly lodged, an officer of the Board calls at the house and tenders his services for expediting the patient's removal. If the patient objects to go into hospital then the Magistrate is applied to for an order under section 5 of Ordinance 7 of 1883. The fumigation and limewashing of the room is then effected as speedily as possible generally within 24 hours and sometimes within an hour or two of the patient's removal. The Nuisance Inspectors who are entrusted with this duty invariably convey the patient in a regulation small-pox ambulance unless the person prefers to walk, and they have all received strict orders from me to assist the Police in preventing the removal of infected persons in licensed jinrickshas and chairs.

(b.) In cases where simply a notification of the disease reaches this Department, an Inspector calls at the house and enquires how many persons are affected, their age and nationality, and also the number of families residing in the tenement. The Inspectors are enjoined to supply whatever disinfectants may be required, and to impress on those in charge of the sick the necessity of maintaining the strictest isolation.

A Notification in English, Portuguese, and Chinese requesting the public to inform the under- signed of the earliest day on which a room vacated by a patient can be fumigated and limewashed,

has also been issued.

Mention might here be made of the fact that the bedding and clothing used by patients in the Government Small-pox Hospital is effectively disinfected and washed within the precincts of the Hospital and that such bedding and clothing when unfit for further use is burnt.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

WM. EDWARD CROW, Acting Sanitary Inspector,

and Honorary Secretary

to Sanitary Board.

APPENDIX.

    In 1887, no notification of Small-pox was made at the Sanitary Office before the 4th of February, and the rise, decline, and subsequent extension of the disease until it assumed an epidemic form in December, will be best seen on perusing the following table.

RE-VACCINATION.

..

By vaccination in infancy, if thoroughly well-performed and successful, most people are completely insured, for their whole life-time, against an attack of small-pox; and in the proportionately few cases where the protection is less complete, small-pox, if it be caught, will, in consequence of the vaccination, generally be so mild a disease as not to threaten death or disfigurement. If however the vaccination in early life have been but imperfectly performed, or have from any other cause been but imperfectly successful, the protection against small-pox is much less satisfactory; neither lasting so long, nor while it lasts being nearly so complete, as the protection which first-rate vaccination gives. Hitherto, unfortunately, there has always been a very large quantity of imperfect vaccination; and in consequence the population always contains very many persons who, though nominally vaccinated and believing themselves to be protected against small-pox, are really liable to. infection, and may in some cases contract as severe forms of small-pox as if they had never been vaccinated. Partly because of the existence of this large number of imperfectly vaccinated persons, and partly because also even the best infantine vac- cination sometimes in process of time loses more or less of its effect, it is advisable that all persons who have been vaccinated in infancy should, as they approach adult life, undergo RE-VACCINATION. Generally speaking, the best time of life for re-vaccination is about the time when growth is completing itself, say from 15 to 18 years of age; and persons in that period of life ought not to delay their re-vaccination till times when there shall be special alarm of small-pox. In proportion, however, as there is prevalence of small-pox in any neighbourhood, or as individuals, are from personal circumstances likely to meet chances of infection, the age of 15 needs not be waited for; especially not by young persons whose marks of previous vaccination are unsatisfactory. In circumstances of special danger, every one past childhood, on whom re-vaccination has not before been successfully performed, ought without delay to be re-vaccinated.

Re-vaccination, once properly and successfully performed, does not appear ever to require repetition. The nurses and other servants of the Small-pox Hospital when they enter the service (unless it be certain that they have already had small- pox) are invariably submitted to vaccination, which in their case generally is re-vaccination, and is never afterwards repeated; and so perfect is the protection, that though the nurses live in the closest and most constant attendance on small-pox patients, and though also the other servants are in various ways exposed to special chances of infection, the Resident Surgeon of the Hospital, during his thirty-four years of office there, has never known small-pox affect any one of these nurses or servants.

The brilliancy of the streams, which are commonly red at their base, green in the middle, and light yellow towards the zenith, increases, and at the same time they dart with greater vivacity athwart the skies. The colours are wonderfully transparent; the red approaching to a clear blood-red, the green to a pale emerald tint.

Meantime the native advances stealthily and by slow stages, with his arm raised in the attitude of throwing his spear, until he is within reach of his prey.

The wily native keeps clear of its inurderous embrace, and kills it by throwing spears into its breast from the distance of a

few yards.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

SUPPLEMENT

To the HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE of 28th January, 1888.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION-No. 41.

    The following Annual Report of the Postmaster General, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 25th instant, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 28th January, 1888.

FREDERICK STEWART,

Colonial Secretary.

GENERAL POST OFFICE. HONGKONG, January 3rd, 1888.

    SIR, I have the honour to report on the British Postal Service in Hongkong and China during 1887.

2. There is not much to record, nor indeed, as far as Hongkong is concerned, can there be much in the way of progress to record until the Department ceases to be cramped by a wholly inadequate building. The limits of development of the service in the existing structure have been fully reached, nor can any marked improvement of organisation be expected until room is provided for a larger staff and more extended operations. Economy of space has been carried so far in the Hongkong Post Office that any modification of detail which necessitates a shelf, a small table, or indeed any place to put anything, has become all but impossible. If the space required is more than a few feet, such a modification is quite impossible.

3. How little the staff of the Post Office has grown with the growing necessities of the service may be seen from the following statement of the Hongkong portion of the staff of this Department, in 1875 when the present writer took charge of it, and in 1887, respectively;-

1875.

Hongkong Staff only.

1 Postmaster General.

1 Assistant do

1 Accountant.

1 Money Order Clerk.

2. Marine Officers.

2 Chinese Assistants for Marine Officers.

6 Clerks.

3 Senior Chinese.

6 Postmen.

8 Coolies.

4 Boatmen.

1887. Hongkong Staff only.

1 Postmaster General.

1 Assistant do.

1 Accountant.

2 Money Order Clerks.

3 Marine Officers.

2 Chinese Assistants for Marine Officers.

7 Clerks.

3. Senior Chinese.

7 Postmen.

6 Coolies.

4 Boatmen.

35.

Total salaries $20,400.

37.

Total salaries $22,740.

     4. It appears from the above that during twelve years there has been an increase in the Staff of two persons, and in the annual expenditure of $2.340, or not quite $200 a month. This increase is more than accounted for by the extra money order clerk, by a clerk for parcels, and by the additional Marine Officer. This latter appointment was necessitated, not by an increase in the work, but because it was found to be, in conjunction with the travelling and constant change of climate, too severe for only two officers. Two Marine Officers died at their posts. Even with three, one of whom is always doing three months shore duty, the strain on health is very perceptible.

5. This slight increase in the personnel of the Department, obtained, as is always the case, with the greatest difficulty, has been nothing like sufficient to keep pace with the growing wants of the community. Nearly stagnant from 1865 to 1875, this Colony in the latter year took a fresh departure, and has been increasing steadily ever since. Steamer traffic grows every year, new Ports have been opened in our neighbourhood, new mail lines have been established. The French Packets, which in

104 SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 28TH JAN., 1888.

1875 brought ten or twelve half-empty bags of correspondence, now bring from ninety to a hundred full ones, our largest inward mail in fact, which, unfortunately, necessarily arrives unsorted. In 1875 we had Money Order relations only with the United Kingdom, and the duties were attended to by a clerk who was expected to perform his full share of ordinary Postal work as well. Now we exchange Money Orders with nearly all the world, and the duties are discharged, with daily increasing difficulty, only by the continuous attention of two clerks, who have to be detached from all other duties. Parcel Post has been introduced within the last two years, and, whilst it is most useful and successful, it forms a serious addition to the general work of the Office, and to the daily demand for more space. The total number of letters, papers, &c. passing through the Hongkong Post Office in 1875 probably fell short of 900,000. The total for 1887 is estimated at 2,200,000. The work of the Department is only got through, and that with extreme pressure and difficulty, by long and severe hours of duty, by excessively hard work, and by the superior officers joining in manual labour which, in most other places, would be performed by men at twenty-five shillings a week.

6 But it is when the Chinese Staff of the Office is considered that it is seen how completely inadequate is the provision of hands, in comparison with the work to be done. In the Local or Municipal Post Office of Shanghai, which undertakes nothing but the reception and distribution of local correspondence, and of that exchanged by steamer with certain Ports immediately corresponding with Shanghai, the work is carried on by the following Chinese staff under the superintendence of two Europeans:-

3 Senior Chinese.

17 Postmen and Coolies.

2 Rickshaw Coolies. 4 Boatmen

26

The Municipal Post Office at Shanghai is one of seven Post Offices by which the correspondence of that Settlement is dealt with, and it is furnished with twenty-six Chinese. The Hongkong Post Office does the whole of the Postal work of Hongkong, inward, outward, and local; prepares and passes on the mails for all China and Japan; acts as a centre between those countries and the Straits, India, America and Australia; sorts both the English and French mails for Shanghai; and is furnished with twenty Chinese. The amount of correspondence passing through Shanghai may be taken, with fair accuracy, to be about half of that passing through Hongkong. The whole l'ostal work of Shanghai is performed by 13 Europeans and 48 Chinese, that of Hongkong by 17 Europeans and 20 Chinese. Moreover the only two really heavy mails for Shanghai are sorted in Hongkong.

7. The Municipal Post Office at Shanghai can, naturally, establish hourly deliveries, and effect them with great regularity and satisfaction to the public. The Hongkong Post Office effects with difficulty three deliveries a day, with an extra delivery after dark when necessary; and, when there is a rush of either inward or outward mail work, delivery has to be suspended altogether, the services of the postmen who should go out with correspondence being indispensable indoors.

   . The directions in which the organisation of the Hongkong Office should now be developed are these-

(a.) The improvement of local delivery.

(b.) The collection of correspondence from steamers, and a quicker landing of contract

mails, by means of a steam-launch belonging to the Department.

(c.) An enforcement of the monopoly of the Post Office with regard to outward corres

pondence, more particularly Chinese.

The third of these has been waiting for time and opportunity, but the other two are absolutely de- pendent on the provision of a larger building. Local delivery cannot be improved without a Chinese staff at least double of what we have at present. There is not room in this building for a single additional Chinese. Instead of adding to the existing overcrowding, it should be abated. And it is worse than useless to collect correspondence from steamers unless there are the means of delivering it at least as quickly as the steamer agents can deliver it themselves. Similarly, this Department could not work a steam-launch to advantage without two Europeans to relieve each other in the duty of boarding vessels on arrival. They would have to live on the premises, for which no ingenuity could arrange in the present building. In fact almost every attempt to improve the service in any way is blocked by the same condition, more room.

  9. To fully develope the internal Postal service of this Colony there will be needed ere long four small sub-offices, viz., one at the east and one at the west end of the town, one at Kowloon and one at the Peak. Pillar boxes will also have to be established at convenient spots on the routes leading to these suburbs. All this would pay its own expenses and more, but it is useless to attempt it without a sufficient central staff to receive and distribute the correspondence.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 28TH JAN., 1888. 105

10. International Statistics, to regulate the payments for sea and territorial conveyance of mails during three

years were taken during the first twenty-eight days of November, and, so far as is known. up to this date, with regularity and success.

11. The date at which this Report has to be sent in makes it impossible to detail the Revenue of the Department for 1887, which will not be definitely ascertained for some months to come. Probably, however, there will be some improvement on the Revenue for 1886, which was as follows:-

Gross Revenue, 1886,

..$134,734.72

$134,734.72

7,865.91

6,973.12

....

33,136.49

8,379.38

$134,734.72

12. We have ceased to expect a profit on the working of the Post Office. That there is still a balance to the good is mainly due to the Parcel Post. During the year the following parcels have been dealt with (not including local parcels, of which no separate account is kept.)

13. The largest Parcel Mail was that despatched on November 8th, the Christmas Mail, by which 329 parcels, weighing 631 lb. net were forwarded. The next largest was that despatched on November 22nd, the New Year Mail, by which 265 parcels, weighing 487 lb. net were forwarded. The largest inward Parcel Mail consisted of 408 parcels, weighing 892 lb.

14. Two parcels were confiscated in London, one for containing reprints of books copyright in the United Kingdom, the other for containing cigars which it was attempted to smuggle under a false declaration. The cigars were addressed to a lady, probably to divert suspicion of the real nature of the contents of the parcel.

15. The exchange of Parcels with the Continent by German Packet is steadily though slowly increasing. At first only four or five parcels were sent or received by each mail, now the average is about twenty. A box containing eight parcels was lost in the Oder.

16. The reduction of postage on coast and local parcels effectel some time since has been the means of attracting a considerable business in the transmission of such parcels, which are now carried at five cents a pound including Registration.

17. It is hoped ere long to have Parcel Post arrangements in force with the principal Australian Colonies. The Victorian Government, which, as controlling the P. & O. line from Melbourne to Colombo, is the first to be consulted, has accepted the proposals of this Office, and it is hoped that the system may be at work within two or three months. An exchange of parcels by the direct Torres Straits steamers was proposed to Queensland, but the internal legislation of that Colony does not permit of its adoption.

    18. A direct exchange of Parcels with Canada via Vancouver has also been proposed. The Canadian Post Office replied that when the mail service between Vancouver and Hongkong has been put on a permanent footing the question will be considered.

19. It has been shown in paragraph 12 that, exclusive of local exchanges, 9,407 parcels passed through this Office in the course of the year. Although the contents of many of these were of con- siderable intrinsic value, no parcel has been lost, nor has any local parcel been lost.*

The reason is

not far to seek. Although parcels are not technically considered as Registered Articles, yet practically and to all intents and purposes, they are Registered. Persons who talk "the stuff that makes one sad and almost sick," as to how they never register their letters, "it only serves to call attention to them." would do well to consider the fact that upwards of nine thousand parcels, often containing such objects as watches, rings, bracelets, &c., with the contents and value marked on them, have been transmitted safely under Registration during the year, whilst it is believed that nearly every letter containing such objects and posted without Registration has been stolen, not necessarily here, nor even necessarily in the Postal service, but still stolen, somewhere.

20. If it were as possible to prevent the sending of unregistered money letters through the Post as it is to prevent the sending of unregistered parcels, letter-stealing would disappear. It is kept up and perpetuated by the persons referred to in the last paragraph, who not only do wrong them-

* Eleven Registered Letters are believed to have been destroyed by an explosion on board the Formosa on December 26th,

106 SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT. GAZETTE OF 28TH JAN., 1888.

 selves, but also persuade others to do so. If only money letters were stolen, the senders might well be left to reap the consequences of their own carelessness, but unfortunately the letters of innocent people are stolen on the chance or on the supposition that they contain money.

   21. It may be questioned whether the detective measures taken by many Postal Administrations in the way of sending test letters and laying other traps for Post Office thieves do not do more harm than good. Every time a letter-carrier is convicted, the public begin to think that now, at last, they may send money letters with safety. They are soon undeceived. So far at least as Post Offices where the subordinates are Chinese are concerned, it will NEVER be safe to send money or valuables through the Post unregistered, and it is believed to be at once the kindest and the justest course to avoid any useless show of an attempt to make it so. Such attempts only foster a disas- trous illusion, and intensify the evil they are intended to cure. To countenance the promiscuous sending of money letters, and yet attempt to put down thefts by detective measures, is like planting a noxious weed, and then snipping at it with scissors. The public have it in their power to cut the weed at the root by ceasing to send unregistered money letters. It is believed that the refusal of this Department to make any enquiry into alleged cases of theft of unregistered money letters has reduced that class of correspondence very considerably. If these remarks should deter one additional person from sending money in unregistered covers they will not have failed of their object. And, if they do not deter him, the loss of his money very speedily will.

22. As it appeared doubtful whether the direct route via Aden for correspondence for the South African Colonies was working as satisfactorily as formerly, experiments were made by the despatch of test covers, as to the real time occupied in transit. The result was as follows:-

To Cape Colony, To Natal,

Via Aden.

Via London.

50 days.

76 days.

57 days.

69 days.

Correspondence for these Colonies is therefore now forwarded exclusively by way of London.

23. In view of the inconvenience caused by the departures of the steamers of the Pacific Mail- Company and Occidental and Oriental Steam-ship Company on the same days as the Mails for Europe, the two Companies promised that they would, in arranging their Schedule for the present year, do all in their power consistently with the rules they have found it necessary to observe, to avoid a repetition of this conflict of dates. The good offices of the Companies have been so far successful that, in their Time Table for the first half of this year, there are only two coincidences.

24. It would be very desirable if the occasional despatch of the German Packet on the same day as the French Packet could also be avoided. It deprives the public of much of the advantage of a supplemental opportunity to be obliged to make use of it within a few hours or not at all.

25. The outward French packets now remain here only twenty-four hours, an arrangement causing a severe strain on the strength of this office,* which has only a few hours of daylight to get the whole mail for Shanghai sorted and packed, amidst the numerous distractions always arising from the recent arrival of a contract mail. On one occasion the newspaper portion of the Shanghai mail was unavoidably sent up unsorted. That was on August 4th, a day

              That was on August 4th, a day on which three Contract Mail Packets left this Colony, an'l two were expected to arrive. Fortunately one arrival did not take place till the following morning.

26. It is feared that, under the new P. and O. contract, the stay of the outward Packet here will also be only twenty-four hours.

27. If the sorting of mails for Shanghai is to be continued under these circumstances, some re- inforcement of the staff will be inevitable, but this is a subject which can be well considered when the question of the surrender or otherwise of our Post Offices in China to the Chinese Government is settled. No decision on this point has yet been arrived at by the Imperial Government.

28. It will be necessary to make provision for a re-organisation of the Amoy Post Office in case we retain the control of it. It is impossible to continue working it much longer in its present under- manned condition. The duties of the Postal Agent at Amoy depend upon the incessant and constantly increasing steamer traffic of that Port, and have been much added to by the establishment of direct steam communication between Amoy and Manila, and between Amoy and Batavia. For Manila alone steamers leave Amoy on the average every three days. The Postal Agent has, during the past year, collected and accounted for Revenue to the amount of $9.403.60. He has sold $7,837 worth of stamps. He has despatched 5.353 Registered Letters and received 4,831, making a total of 10,184 Registered articles, every one of which needed individual attention and necessitated several entries in books, &c. This gives an average of 28 Registries each day, including Sundays, but sometimes as The Agent has dealt many as 125 Registered Articles will be despatched to Manila by one steamer.

* On Christmas day the clerks in charge of the Shanghai mail were at work from 2 P.M. till midnight, and were required at 7 the next morning for the ordinary work of the Office.

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT. GAZETTE OF 28?? JAN., 1888. 107

with 325 parcels, and has sold Postal Notes to the amount of $1,312. He has dealt, without any assistance except that of two Chinese who cannot read English, with over 200,000 articles of ordinary correspondence, say 550 per day, Sundays included. His Office is the point of distribution for Tamsui, Kelung, Taiwanfoo, and Takao, the service of which places involves much correspondence and attention to detail. It can scarcely be thought that $40 a month is a sufficient salary to pay a gentleman, who has other duties to attend to, for the amount of work, responsibility, watchfulness, and care, involved in keeping up such an Office as is described above All through the year, we have been continually on the verge of a deadlock at Amoy caused by the not unnatural reluctance of officers of the Consular service to undertake a post the work of which is out of proportion to the pay. Only by the good offices of H. M. Consul in prevailing on members of his staff to take the duties as a personal favour to himself has such a deadlock been prevented. If the Amoy Office continues to be worked from Hongkong it is hoped that its complete reorganisation will be allowed.

29. Arrangements were made, during the year under report, to induce a more general prepayment of the correspondence which it is the custom to send here by steamers outside the mails. The measures taken were necessarily of a stringent kind, but it was intended to relax them as soon as the end in view was attained. This was accomplished before the setting in of the inevitable outcry, which had been all along foreseen by this Department; and the sending of unpaid letters on board steamers was practically put a stop to, and less stringent rules introduced, before any complaint was made. This Office, at any rate, is no longer periodically flooded with unpaid correspondence, nor will the wholesale transmission of such unpaid correspondence through the Post be allowed to be resumed.

3. The Governor shall appoint such duly qualified per- sons as he may deem fit, to be Public Vaccinators within the Colony, and shall appoint such local stations or places within the City of Victoria and in the Villages of Hong- kong and Kowloon as he may deem expedient for the pur- poses of public vaccination, and such Public Vaccinators shall vaccinate gratis all persons who may come to them at such local stations or places for that purpose, and at such times and subject to such Rules and Regulations as may, under the provisions of this Ordinance, be issued by the Governor in Council in that behalf.

4. Every Parent or Guardian of a child resident within the Colony, after the passing of this Ordinance shall, if such child be six months or more than six months old, cause such child to be vaccinated by a Medical Practitioner or Public Vaccinator, and such Medical Practitioner or Public Vaccinator shall, upon personal inspection of the successful vaccination of such child, furnish the Parent or Guardian with a certificate of the successful vaccination of such child in the form of Schedule A hereto, and such Parent or Guardian shall, within three days after the date thereof, lodge such Certificate with the Registrar General. For the purpose of this section, a parent or guardian of a child shall be deemed to be at any time resident within the Colony, if he has had his habitual place of abode in the Colony for 6 months then next preceding.

5. If any Medical Practitioner shall be of opinion that any child is not a fit and proper subject to be successfully vaccinated, he shall thereupon deliver to the Parent or Guardian of such child, a Certificate under his hand in the form of Schedule B, that such child is unfit for successful vaccination and such Certificate shall remain in force for two months from its delivery as aforesaid, and if such child be not vaccinated at the termination of such period of two months, then the Certificate on the application of such person or such Parent or Guardian shall be renewed by such Medical Practitioner during each succeeding period of two months until such child shall have been successfully vaccinated, and the production of such Certificate of unfit- ness for successful vaccination shall be a sufficient defence against any complaint which may be brought against such Parent or Guardian for non-compliance with the provisions of this Ordinance.

It shall be lawful for the Governor to appoint some Medical Practitioner whose duty it shall be to examine gratuitously children on whose behalf are claimed certificates of unfitness for successful vaccination under this section and to grant or withhold such certificate in his discretion.

6. In the event of a Medical Practitioner or Public Vaccinator, being of opinion after three successive vaccina- tions made by himself that any child is insusceptible of the vaccine disease, he shall furnish the Parent or Guardian of such child, with a Certificate under his hand in the form of Schedule C, that such child is insusceptible of vaccine disease, and such Parent or Guardian shall, within three days after the date of such Certificate, lodge the same with the Registrar General.

7. The Registrar General shall enter in the Registry of Births kept by him the word Vaccinated opposite the name of every child whose vaccination has been certified, and the word Insusceptible opposite the name of every child who has been certified, as herein provided, to be insus- ceptible of vaccine disease.

8. In every case where after the expiration of six months after the registered birth of any child, the Parent or Guardian of such child has failed to exhibit to the Registrar General a certificate of the Vaccination or of the insuscepti- bility to Vaccination of such child, the Registrar General shall serve on such Parent or Guardian, as the case may be, a written notice in the form of Schedule D, and if within ten days after his receipt of such notice such person, or such Parent or Guardian shall not have presented to the Registrar General, for registration any one of the three forms of Certificate herein before provided and set forth in Schedules A, B and C, such Parent or Guardian shall forfeit a sum not exceeding Five Dollars or be liable to imprison- ment for a term not exceeding ten days, and should the Parent or Guardian of such child then refuse to cause such child to be vaccinated, such Parent or Guardian shall forfeit a sum not exceeding Fifty Dollars or be liable to imprison- ment for a term not exceeding three months.

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 4TH FEBRUARY, 1888.

MEDICAL DEPARTMENT OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL OFFICE.

RE-VACCINATION.

By vaccination in infancy, if thoroughly well-performed and successful, most people are completely insured, for their whole life-time, against an attack of small-pox; and in the proportionately few cases where the protection is less complete, small-pox, if it be caught, will, in consequence of the vaccination, generally be so mild a disease as not to threaten death or disfigurement. If however the vaccination in carly life have been but imperfectly performed, or have from any other cause been but imperfectly successful, the protection against small-pox is much less satisfactory; neither lasting so long, nor while it lasts being nearly so complete, as the protection which first-rate vaccination gives. Hitherto, unfortunately, there has always been a very large quantity of imperfect vaccination; and in consequence the population always contains very many persons who, though nominally vaccinated and believing themselves to be protected against small-pox, are really liable to infection, and may in some cases contract as severe forms of small-pox as if they had never been vaccinated. Partly because of the existence of this large number of imperfectly vaccinated persons, and partly because also even the best infantine vac- cination sometimes in process of time loses more or less of its effect, it is advisable that all persons who have been vaccinated in infancy should, as they approach adult life, undergo RE-VACCINATION. Generally speaking, the best time of life for re-vaccination is about the time when growth is completing itself, say from 15 to 18 years of age; and persons in that period of life ought not to delay their re-vaccination till times when there shall be special alarm of small-pox. In proportion, however, as there is prevalence of small-pox in any neighbourhood, or as individuals are from personal circumstances likely to meet chances of infection, the age of 15 needs not be waited for; especially not by young persons whose marks of previous vaccination are unsatisfactory. In circumstances of special danger, every one past childhood, on whom re-vaccination has not before been successfully performed, ought without delay to be re-vaccinated.

  Re-vaccination, once properly and successfully performed, does not appear ever to require repetition. The nurses and other servants of the Small-pox Hospital when they enter the service (unless it be certain that they have already had small- pox) are invariably submitted to vaccination, which in their case generally is re-vaccination, and is never afterwards repeated; and so perfect is the protection, that though the nurses live in the closest and most constant attendance on small-pox patients, and though also the other servants are in various ways exposed to special chances of infection, the Resident Surgeon of the Hospital, during his thirty-four years of office there, has never known small-pox affect any one of these nurses or servants.

RE-VACCINATION.

By vaccination in infancy, if thoroughly well-performed and successful, most people are completely insured, for their whole life-time, against an attack of small-pox; and in the proportionately few cases where the protection is less complete, small-pox, if it be caught, will, in consequence of the vaccination, generally be so mild a disease as not to threaten death or disfigurement. If however the vaccination in carly life have been but imperfectly performed, or have from any other cause been but imperfectly successful, the protection against small-pox is much less satisfactory; neither lasting so long, nor while it lasts being nearly so complete, as the protection which first-rate vaccination gives. Hitherto, unfortunately, there has always been a very large quantity of imperfect vaccination; and in consequence the population always contains very many persons who, though nominally vaccinated and believing themselves to be protected against small-pox, are really liable to infection, and may in some cases contract as severe forms of small-pox as if they had never been vaccinated. Partly because of the existence of this large number of imperfectly vaccinated persons, and partly because also even the best infantine vac- cination sometimes in process of time loses more or less of its effect, it is advisable that all persons who have been vaccinated in infancy should, as they approach adult life, undergo RE-VACCINATION. Generally speaking, the best time of life for re-vaccination is about the time when growth is completing itself, say from 15 to 18 years of age; and persons in that period of life ought not to delay their re-vaccination till times when there shall be special alarm of small-pox. In proportion, however, as there is prevalence of small-pox in any neighbourhood, or as individuals are from personal circumstances likely to meet chances of infection, the age of 15 needs not be waited for; especially not by young persons whose marks of previous vaccination are unsatisfactory. In circumstances of special danger, every one past childhood, on whom re-vaccination has not before been successfully performed, ought without delay to be re-vaccinated.

  Re-vaccination, once properly and successfully performed, does not appear ever to require repetition. The nurses and other servants of the Small-pox Hospital when they enter the service (unless it be certain that they have already had small- pox) are invariably submitted to vaccination, which in their case generally is re-vaccination, and is never afterwards repeated; and so perfect is the protection, that though the nurses live in the closest and most constant attendance on small-pox patients, and though also the other servants are in various ways exposed to special chances of infection, the Resident Surgeon of the Hospital, during his thirty-four years of office there, has never known small-pox affect any one of these nurses or servants.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

The Council met pursuant to adjournment.

The Minutes of the last Meeting, held on the 25th ultimo, were read and confirmed.

FINANCE COMMITTEE MEETINGS.-Read the following Message from His Excellency the Governor:-

G. WILLIAM DES VOEUX.

 The Governor has given his careful consideration, in Council, to the question recently raised by the Honourable Mr. MACEWEN with regard to the sittings of the Finance Committee. He is informed that for a long time past, nothing has occurred at any of the meetings of the Committee, which might have not been published without prejudice to the Public Service, and he moreover strongly sympathizes with the view that discussions on votes of public money should, as a rule, be held in public. On the other hand the practice of private sittings has the sanction of long usage, and though the advantages which it possesses, or the conditions. that make it expedient, are not for the moment apparent, they must be presumed at one time. to have existed and as therefore possible of recurrence. For this reason the Governor does not feel justified in sanctioning a complete alteration of the practice at once, but thinks that an experiment may safely be tried, which while making a sensible advance towards publicity, will permit of private sittings when they appear for any reason expedient.

130

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 11TH FEBRUARY, 1888.

It is proposed therefore that for the future the meetings of the Finance Committee shall, as a rule, be held with open doors, and that all votes be passed in public, it being however competent for any member, either by previous notice or otherwise, to secure a private discus- sion of such vote or votes as inay appear to him to require it. As the principal reasons for or against every vote can under such a system always be elicited in the public hearing, either in the. Finance Committee or in the Legislative Council, it is hoped that all reasonable de- mands for publicity will thus be satisfied.

On the other hand in the event, which the Governor does not deem probable, of the new practice proving by experience to have inconveniences which outweigh its obvious advan- tages, it will not be found difficult to return to that which has been hitherto followed.

Government House, Hongkong, 3rd February, 1888.

SUBSIDIARY COINS.-Mr. MACEWEN, pursuant to notice made the following motion and addressed the Council:-

That in consequence of the frequent inconvenience caused to the Public owing to the insuffi- ciency of the supply of Small Coins, the Council recommend increased quantities to be regularly sent out. Mr. MacEwen will also move for previous correspondence on the subject.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 35,

The following Government Notification is re-published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 28th January, 1888.

No. 74.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

FREDERICK STEWART, Colonial Secretary.

The following Paper from the Medical Department of the Privy Council Office, on the subject of Re-vaccination, which has been transmitted to this Government by the Right Honorable the Secretary of State for the Colonies, is published for general information.

By Command,

: CECIL C. SMITH,

Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 11th April, 1872.

MEDICAL DEPARTMENT OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL OFFICE.

RE-VACCINATION.

By vaccination in infancy, if thoroughly well-performed and successful, most people are completely insured, for their whole life-time, against an attack of small-pox; and in the proportionately few cases where the protection is less complete, small-pox, if it be caught, will, in consequence of the vaccination, generally be so mild a disease as not to threaten death or disfigurement. If however the vaccination in early life has been but imperfectly performed, or has from any other cause been but imperfectly successful, the protection against small-pox is much less satisfactory; neither lasting so long, nor while it lasts being nearly' so complete, as the protection which first-rate vaccination gives. Hitherto, unfortunately, there has always been a very large quantity of imperfect vaccination; and in consequence the population always contains very many persons who, though nominally vaccinated and believing themselves to be protected against small-pox, are really liable to infection, and may in some cases contract as severe forms of small-pox as if they had never been vaccinated. Partly because of the existence of this large number of imperfectly vaccinated persons, and partly because also even the best infantine vac- cination sometimes in process of time loses more or less of its effect, it is advisable that all persons who have been vaccinated in infancy should, as they approach adult life, undergo RE-VACCINATION. Generally speaking, the best time of life for re-vaccination is about the time when growth is completing itself, say from 15 to 18 years of age; and persons in that period of life ought not to delay their re-vaccination til times, when there shall be special alarm of small-pox. In proportion, however, as there is prevalence of small-pox in any neighbourhood, or as individuals are from personal circumstances likely to meet chances of infection, the age of 15 needs not be waited for; especially not by young persons whose marks of previous vaccination are unsatisfactory. In circumstances of special danger, every one past childhood, on whom re-vaccination has not before been successfully performed, ought without delay to be re-vaccinated.

Re-vaccination, once properly and successfully performed, does not appear ever to require repetition. The nurses and other servants of the Small-pox Hospital when they enter the service (unless it be certain that they have already had small- pox) are invariably submitted to vaccination, which in their case generally is re-vaccination, and is never afterwards repeated ; and so perfect is the protection, that though the nurses live in the closest and most constant attendance on small-pox patients, and though also the other servants are in various ways exposed to special chances of infection, the Resident Surgeon of the Hospital, during his thirty-four years of office there, has never known small-pox affect any one of these nurses or servants.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work i? a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.--No. 62.

The following Annual Report of the Head Master of the Government Central School for 1887, which was laid before the Legislative Council on the 8th instant, is published for general information. By Command,

SIR, I have the honour to forward the Annual Report on this School for 1887.

1. The total number of boys on the Roll for the past year was 601. The school days numbered 234, the difference from last year being accounted for, by the four days special holiday, given by His Excellency the Governor, in November in connexion with the celebration of Her Majesty's Jubilee.

     2. To illustrate the condition of the School during the last five years the following table is annexed :-

ANNUAL EXAMINATION.

     3. The result of the Annual Prize Examination in English subjects, just held, is eminently satis- factory. Only 9 boys failed out of 384 examined, in other words 97 per cent passed. As this is the last Annual Examination which will be held in this school building, the history of which extends over a quarter of a century, I may be pardoned for dwelling on this signal success, which forms a fitting crown to the labours of so many years. It will be remembered that on my arrival, six years ago, after examining the school I expressed my astonishment and gratification at the attainments in English of the Chinese, who form the vast majority of Central School boys. Since then, no stone has been left unturned, steadily and get without undue haste, to raise the standard. English Composition was introduced into the 4th class; translation from and into Chinese was made obligatory in every class; English Grammar and Geography were extended three classes lower. The result of this exten- sion is shown in the present examination; of the 314 boys examined in English Grammar 90 per cent.

158 SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 11TH FEB., 1888.

passed, while 94 per cent. passed of the 110 examined in English Composition; and I may say that for idiom of expression and thoughtfulness in ideas the essays presented by these Chinese boys-who, it must be remembered, do not associate with English, out of school hours, cannot fail to be considered admirable. Making comparison with the percentage table of last year, I observe a higher percentage obtained by the school this year in every subject, except Map-Drawing which is about the same figure. Special improvement is noticeable in Arithmetic, Grammar, Geography, Euclid, Algebra, General Intel- ligence Papers and Mensuration.

  4. The severity of the test applied to the classes in this school precludes all possibility of any comparison being instituted with work done in any other school in the Colony. Not only are there no Special Optional subjects-every subject, Euclid, Algebra, Latin, Physical and Commercial Geography, taught in any class being compulsory to every boy in that class, but the examination in Grammar is not, as in the Grant-in-Aid System, confined to Analysis Parsing and Definitions, nor in Geography to Map drawing and Definitions; on the contrary searching general questions are set, more after the type of the Oxford and Cambridge Local Examinations; nor must I forget to mention the two papers. translation from and into Chinese, in each class, which prove such a stumbling-block to non- Chinese boys, and so ruthlessly handicap them in the race for prizes. The system I adopted on my arrival, and which I have since maintained, is that to pass in each subject a boy must obtain at least half-marks, and failure in more than half the subjects of his class makes a boy a complete failure. This year there were 15 subjects in the First Class, as opposed to 8 subjects in 1882; therefore this year, a boy required for a bare pass, as much as would have gained him excellent distinction six years ago. If this School had been examined on Grant-in-Aid principles, we could have presented 69 boys in the highest Standard, Standard VI; 41 in Standard V; 102 in Standard IV; 100 in Standard III; 52 in Standard II; and 20 in Standard 1; moreover Copy-writing would have been taken into account for 274 boys, instead of merely for the 70 boys at the bottom of the school.

  5. The Upper School was examined in a first year's work in Latin, the same paper was set to all three classes, and though the questions were stiff, very creditable answers were obtained. Class I was examined in three books of Euclid; and in Algebra offered Surds, Scales of Notation, &c. up to Har- monical Progression. Class IV passed excellently in Algebra and Euclid.

STAFF.

  6. Mr. ARTHUR, Third Master, was transferred to the Magistracy, early in the year. He was a tho- roughly efficient, successful, and popular teacher, able to maintain excellent discipline without any ostentation, and having no need to resort to severity. In the important subject of English Reading and Pronunciation, which, to those not practically engaged in teaching English to foreigners, might appear easy, he was unrivalled. The school was fortunate in obtaining the services of Mr. JAMESON, a graduate of Peterhouse Cambridge, whose engagement at another school happily terminated at the time of Mr. ARTHUR's transfer. Mr. JAMESON laboured strenuously throughout the year, with what success may be estimated from the fact that only one boy failed, out of the three classes in his charge, which comprised 126 boys. On April 1st Mr. Mok, 3rd Chinese Assistant was transferred to the Registrar General's Office, Mr. CHU took his place, and Mr. Lo KIT was promoted from Senior Pupil Teacher to be 4th Chinese Assistant. In my report on the requirements of the New School forwarded twelve mouths ago, I drew special attention to the injury done to the school, by Masters, English and Chinese, leaving on account of dissatisfaction with salaries, and I trust that my suggestions on this head will meet with the approval of the authorities.

  7. That the whole Staff deserves credit for the past year's work is evident from the results of Examination given above; but I wish to bear any testimony to the important fact, of which I alone can be cognisant, that in this school, there is no spasmodic cramming at the end of the

with a year, view to dazzling effect; but steady uniform work, willingly and cheerfully performed consistently throughout the year. As in the New School a larger amount of responsibility in teaching will fall into the hands of the Chinese Assistants, I desire to draw particular attention to the good results obtained by the four classes V-VIII, which were entrusted to the care of the four Chinese Assistants. The excellent papers, in most instances, done by these boys, in English Grammar, Geography, Dicta- tion and Arithmetic show that there is no ground for apprehension, that English subjects cannot be adequately taught by Chinese.

  8. I have received from Mr. JAMESON, Master in charge of the Preparatory School, a very favour- able report of the work done by the six Articled Pupil Teachers. This is very satisfactory, and marred alone by the fact, that one of the Pupil Teachers gave evidence of persistent neglect of his First Class studies, which culminated, as might naturally be expected in a pass, which can only be viewed as discreditable.

CAMBRIDGE LOCAL EXAMINATION.

  9. The six candidates who entered for the Cambridge Local Examination in 1886 acquitted them- selves well. The Senior candidate passed in Arithmetic, English Grammar, Composition, and History, Geography, Euclid, and Algebra, but failed in Scripture. As a Chinese, he had natural difficulty with this subject, but his experience has led him to devote more attention to it for the late examination,

SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT GAZETTE OF 11TH FEB., 1888. 159

3.

Of the five Juniors, HOWARD and MADAR obtained certificates and have therefore the distinction of being the first Hongkong boys to obtain that honour; two others WONG FAN and WONG PING failed only in History and Geography, or it may be in only one of these as particulars were not given. The remain- ing boy was incapacitated by fever. That the boys themselves considered this result encouraging is evident from the fact, that they all entered for the late examination; MADAR abandoned the project only on leaving school, and five new boys swelled the number. In October last the Colonial Secretary, Hon. F. STEWART, LL.D., presented the parchments to the two successful candidates, for it seemed specially appropriate that the late Headmaster should perform in his old school a ceremony, that occurred for the first and last time, and which will prove a prominent link between this school and the new college.

     10. I cannot refrain from here taking the opportunity to defend the Local Examinations against two serious imputations, cramming and competition, that have been laid to their charge. Cramming is the process by which a man of experience reduces, for the sake of his pupils, the wide area of any given subject, by judiciously selecting those portions, on which questions are likely to be set. This method is open to the obvious objection that first principles and sound basis are sacrificed to show results in answer to Catch Questions. Now when year after year, bodies of examiners, like the Oxford Delegates and Cambridge Syndicate set forth varied questions, testing the knowledge of rudiments in each subject, as well as embracing the highest achievements, and at the same time distinctly state that each candidate must satisfy the examiners in Rudimentary knowledge in each subject--to talk of cram- ming in connexion with these examinations merely argues want of information in those who hazard the statement. As regards the Central School, this charge is simply ludicrous; the local candidates study their subjects in a class of 60 boys; only one hour a week, in the afternoon, is allowed for in- structions in each of the special subjects (as Shakespeare and the Epoch of History) and for instruction in Higher Euclid and Algebra.

     11. The idea of Competition is foreign to the purpose of local examinations, which is to provide one standard for boys educated in different schools on widely varying principles. Each boy does his best to pass well, and if possible to obtain distinction; but there is no personal emulation to urge him to outstrip any particular boy, which is the necessary element of competition as applied to school-boy life. Unfortunately, however, the attempt has been made, to raise the spirit of competition, not among scholars but schools. Such a feeling should not be admitted for a moment; not only is there no con- test, but there is actually no uniformity of conditions. One school may send in all the boys in certain classes, another may offer only selected candidates. One school may have a large staff of masters, another may be without this advantage. It is not the custom in England, as far as my personal know- ledge reaches, for comparison to be made between the results in different schools in the same town. Whatever wholesome emulation may be personally stirred among the masters, no comparisons are drawn between the results (say) of a Grammar School and of a Board School, nor between the latter and those of a Denominational School; nor in fact would it be possible as the basis of comparison is wanting.

OLD SCHOLARS.

     12. In the past year we were gratified by the news of Mr. WALTER BOSMAN'S (Government Scholar) final success at the Engineering College at the Chrystal Palace. He was presented with the Society's Bronze Medal for sustained distinction, in no less than 9 terminal examinations. His future successes will not come within the scope of School Reports, but he will continue to carry with him the good wishes of his old school-fellows and schoolmasters.

13. It is also worthy of note that Mr. TAI TIN-PUI, who left the Second Class of this school at midsummer after showing marked aptitude for English Studies, graduated last November as Sau Tsoi at Canton. I am informed that this is the first time this success has been achieved by a Central School boy. It must, however, be clearly understood that the credit of this success does not belong to this school, for as a rule we can do but little more than preserve the knowledge of Chinese a boy brings with him; still Mr. TAI has shown conclusively that application to English studies need not cause a boy to abandon the pursuit of native literature.

HEALTH.

14. The health of the school suffered from the fever and small-pox prevalent in the town, at the close of the year. The Sick List in December is the largest I remember.

CONCLUSION.

15. I will conclude with a few general remarks. The new school is hasting to its completion, and I sincerely trust, that we are not dooined to pass another summer in these overcrowded class- rooms, from which air is effectually blocked out by the houses that hem us in, on every side. It may be that in another year Chinese dwellings may stand on the site of this old School, but its memory

160 SUPPLEMENT TO THE HONGKONG GOVT. GAZETTE OF 11TH FEB., 1888.

will endure; a dozen Morrison scholars, and one Government scholar, hundreds of clerks in English and Chinese Government Service, and a countless number of mercantile clerks scattered over the Far East will have these old walls photographed on their memory of happy youthful days, as long as life shall last. The standard of education at the Central School may be said this year to have attained its High Water mark, it only remains for the Victoria College to take this tide at the flood and so be led on to Fame and Fortune.

I have the honour to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient Servant,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 11th April, 1872.

MEDICAL DEPARTMENT OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL OFFICE.

RE-VACCINATION.

By vaccination in infancy, if thoroughly well-performed and successful, most people are completely insured, for their whole life-time, against an attack of small-pox; and in the proportionately few cases where the protection is less complete, small-pox, if it be caught, will, in consequence of the vaccination, generally be so mild a disease as not to threaten death or disfigurement. If however the vaccination in early life has been but imperfectly performed, or has from any other cause been but imperfectly successful, the protection against small-pox is much less satisfactory; neither lasting so long, nor while it lasts being nearly so complete, as the protection which first-rate vaccination gives. Hitherto, unfortunately, there has always been a very large quantity of imperfect vaccination; and in consequence the population always contains very many persons who, though nominally vaccinated and believing themselves to be protected against small-pox, are really liable to infection, and may in some cases contract as severe forms of small-pox as if they had never been vaccinated. Partly because of the existence of this large number of imperfectly vaccinated persons, and partly because also even the best infantine vac-

190 THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 18TH FEBRUARY, 1888.

cination sometimes in process of time loses more or less of its effect, it is advisable that all persons who have been vaccinated in infancy should, as they approach adult life, undergo RE-VACCINATION. Generally speaking, the best time of life for re-vaccination is about the time when growth is completing itself, say from 15 to 18 years of age; and persons in that period of life ought not to delay their re-vaccination till times when there shall be special alarm of small-pox. In proportion, however, as there is prevalence of small-pox in any neighbourhood, or as individuals are from personal circumstances likely to meet chances of infection, the age of 15 needs not be waited for; especially not by young persons whose marks of previous vaccination are unsatisfactory. In circumstances of special danger, every one past childhood, on whom re-vaccination has not before been successfully performed, ought without delay to be re-vaccinated.

  Re-vaccination, once properly and successfully performed, does not appear ever to require repetition. The nurses and other servants of the Small-pox Hospital when they enter the service (unless it be certain that they have already had small- pox) are invariably submitted to vaccination, which in their case generally is re-vaccination, and is never afterwards repeated; and so perfect is the protection, that though the nurses live in the closest and most constant attendance on small-pox patients, and though also the other servants are in various ways exposed to special chances of infection, the Resident Surgeon of the Hospital, during his thirty-four years of office there, has never known small-pox affect any one of these nurses or servants.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.-No. 84.

The following Finding of the Marine Court, held on the 20th instant, to enquire into the loss of the British Steam-ship Ardgay, Official No. 88,869, of Aberdeen, ALEXANDER COOK, Master, whose Certificate of Competency is 97,684, is published for general information.

By Command,

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 25th February, 1888.

FINDING.

FREDERICK STEWART, Colonial Secretary.

We find that the British Steam-ship Ardgay of 1,077 tons, Official No. 88,869 of Aberdeen, of which ALEXANDER COOK, number of whose Certificate of Competency is 97,684, was Master, left Hongkong on the 13th December, 1887, with 150 tons of cargo bound to Bangkok.

That on the 15th December at 4.15 A.M., about 44 hours after leaving Hongkong, the vessel struck the ground a little to the North of Cape Batangan and could not be floated, and the vessel was finally abandoned, and the Crew, with the exception of the Chief Engineer and two Firemen, brought to Hongkong.

The Master was supplied with an Imray's General Chart of the China Sea, and a late "China Pilot." We are of opinion that due regard was not paid to the Directions contained in the "China Pilot,' and the Master was unable to produce. any written evidence as to his having paid attention to the deviation of his Compasses.

On working up the courses steered we find the ship is placed in her proper latitude, but is 108 miles East of her position when on shore, and we are of opinion that this ship was lost through a want of care of navigation.

After due consideration of the circumstances, we direct that the Certificate of Competency of ALEXANDER COOK, No. 97,684, be suspended for a period of three months from this date.

Given under our hands at Hongkong this Twentieth day of February, 1888.

No. 74.

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION.

The following Paper from the Medical Department of the Privy Council Office, on the subject of Re-vaccination, which has been transmitted to this Government by the Right Honorable the Secretary of State for the Colonies, is published for general information.

By Command,

CECIL C. SMITH, Acting Colonial Secretary.

Colonial Secretary's Office, Hongkong, 11th April, 1872.

MEDICAL DEPARTMENT OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL OFFICE.

RE-VACCINATION.

By vaccination in infancy, if thoroughly well-performed and successful, most people are completely insured, for their whole life-time, against an attack of small-pox; and in the proportionately few cases where the protection is less complete, small-pox, if it be caught, will, in consequence of the vaccination, generally be so mild a disease as not to threaten death or disfigurement. If however the vaccination in early life has been but imperfectly performed, or has from any other cause been but imperfectly successful, the protection against small-pox is much less satisfactory; neither lasting so long, nor while it lasts being nearly so complete, as the protection which first-rate vaccination gives. Hitherto, unfortunately, there has always been a very large quantity of imperfect vaccination; and in consequence the population always contains very many persons who, though nominally vaccinated and believing themselves to be protected against small-pox, are really liable to infection, and may in some cases contract as severe forms of small-pox as if they had never been vaccinated. Partly because of the existence of this large number of imperfectly vaccinated persons, and partly because also even the best infantine vac-

214

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 25TH FEBRUARY, 1888.

cination sometimes in process of time loses more or less of its effect, it is advisable that all persons who have been vaccinated in infancy should, as they approach adult life, undergo RE-VACCINATION. Generally speaking, the best time of life for re-vaccination is about the time when growth is completing itself, say from 15 to 18 years of age; and persons in that period of life ought not to delay their re-vaccination till times when there shall be special alarm of small-pox. In proportion, however, as there is prevalence of small-pox in any neighbourhood, or as individuals are from personal circumstances likely to meet chances of infection, the age of 15 needs not be waited for; especially not by young persons whose marks of previous vaccination are unsatisfactory. In circumstances of special danger, every one past childhood, on whom re-vaccination has not before been successfully performed, ought without delay to be re-vaccinated.

  Re-vaccination, once properly and successfully performed, does not appear ever to require repetition. The nurses and other servants of the Small-pox Hospital when they enter the service (unless it be certain that they have already had small- pox) are invariably submitted to vaccination, which in their case generally is re-vaccination, and is never afterwards repeated; and so perfect is the protection, that though the nurses live in the closest and most constant attendance on small-pox patients, tand though also the oher seryants are in various ways exposed to special chances of infection, the Resident Surgeon of the Hospital, during his thirty-four years of office there, has never known small-pox affect any one of these nurses or servants.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Languagel constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperia, Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

18. The appellant shall prosecute his appeal within one month from the expiry of the aforesaid period of twenty- one days, failing which, his right to appeal shall lapse.

19. On the fixing by the Court of a day for hearing such appeal, the appellant shall forthwith give notice thereof to the Assessor.

(3.) That the appellant neglected or refused to sup- ply the information required by section 3 within ten days of demand.

21. In any case in which an appeal might be disallowe- under sub-section 3 of the last section, the Judge may, ncd vertheless, hear the appeal, if it shall appear;-

(1.) That the omission to give the required informa- tion arose from the absence or disability of the appellant, or other unavoidable cause.

(2.) That application was made to the Assessor under Section 5 for an extension of time, and was re- fused without good cause or that the time allowed was not, in the opinion of the Court, of reasonable length.

22. The Court, upon proof that the notices required by Sections 15 to 19 inclusive were given within the time fixed by those sections, shall hear and determine the matter of the appeal in a summary way, and may make such order therein as it thinks proper, with or without costs to any

Refund of Rates.

34. Refunds of rates may be made subject to the fol- lowing rules -

(1.) Whenever any tenement, not being a tenement at Victoria Peak, is unoccupied during one or more entire months of any quarter in respect of which the rates upon such tenement were paid in ad- vance, the Treasurer shall refund the rates for such months.

(2.) When any tenement at Victoria Peak shall be continuously unoccupied during any six consecu- tive months from April to November inclusive, the owner shall be entitled to a refund of the rates paid during such period on account of such tenement, and for each succeeding month during which such tenement shall be continuously un- occupied he shall be entitled to a like refund. 35. Refunds may be obtained in the following man-

ner :-

(1.) The owner of any tenement may give notice to the Treasurer that such tenement is vacant not later than the fifteenth day of any month from the first day of which it is intended to claim such refund.

(2.) So long as such tenement shall remain continu- ously unoccupied, no further notice shall be re- quired, but after the re-occupation of such tene- ment, notice shall again be required, as provided in the preceding sub-section.

(3.) The person claiming the refund may, within fifteen days after the expiration of the quarter during which the tenement has been unoccupied, apply to the Treasurer in the form D in the Schedule for such refund.

(4.) The Treasurer may refund the rates for one or more entire months during such quarter if due notice have been given, and if the Treasurer be satisfied that the tenement was unoccupied during such months, which he shall ascertain by causing it to be actually inspected from month to month. (5.) In the case of tenements at Victoria Peak, no refund shall be made until the tenement has been continuously unoccupied during six months as hereinbefore provided, after which the refund may be made quarterly till the tenement is occupied. 36. Any person aggrieved by refusal on the part of the Treasurer to refund rates may apply to the Supreme Court in its Summary Jurisdiction, and the Court may adjudicate upon a petition for a refund of rates, although the claim exceeds one thousand dollars, and for the purpose of such adjudication may receive any evidence it thinks fit.

No. 12 of 1888.

An Ordinance enacted by the Governor of Hong- kong, with the advice and consent of the Legis- lative Council thereof, entitled The Vagrancy Ordinance, 1888.

LS

G. WILLIAM DES VEUX.

233

[3rd March, 1888.]

B'

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

1. In this Ordinance the term Vagrant means any person other than a Chinese found asking for alms or without any employment or visible means of subsistence.

Agent of a vessel includes any person who undertakes the agency of such vessel, though he may not be the con- signee thereof.

2. The Governor may provide a House of Detention for Vagrants at such place as he may think proper, and may appoint a Superintendent and such Officers as he may think proper, and may remove any such Superintendent or Officers at pleasure.

The Governor may by notification in the Gazette certify any building or part of a building to be a House of Detention for the purposes of this Ordinance, and until any such house be provided the Gaol at Victoria may be used as such house for the purpose of this Ordinance.

3. Every House of Detention shall be under the imme- diate charge of a Superintendent who shall be appointed, and may be suspended or removed by the Governor, and until any other appointment is made the Superintendent of Victoria Gaol shall be the Superintendent of the House of Detention.

4. Any Police Officer may require any person who is apparently a vagrant to accompany him or any other Police Officer to, and to appear before, a Magistrate.

5. Such Magistrate shall in such case, or in any other case where a person apparently a Vagrant comes before him, make a summary enquiry into the circumstances of such apparent Vagrant and if satisfied that he is a Vagrant shall declare him to be such.

6. If such Magistrate shall be further of opinion that such Vagrant is not likely to obtain employment at once, or if he has reason to believe that a declaration of vagrancy has on any former occasion been recorded in respect of such Vagrant, he shall require such Vagrant to go to a House of Detention, and shall draw up an order to that effect.

7. The Vagrant shall then be placed in charge of the Police for the purpose of being forwarded to the House of Detention and the said order shall be a sufficient author- ity to the Police for retaining him in their charge while he is on his way to the House of Detention and to the Super- intendent of the House of Detention for receiving and detaining such Vagrant.

8. Where the Magistrate dealing with such Vagrant is of opinion that the Vagrant is likely to obtain employment in the Colony, such Magistrate may in his discretion forward the Vagrant in charge of the Police to the place where such employment is likely to be obtained and may draw up an order to that effect. Such order shall be a sufficient authority to the Police for retaining the Vagrant in their charge whilst on his way to such place of employment, and afterwards, should he not succeed in obtaining such employment.

9. The Magistrate dealing with any Vagrant shall to the best of his ability, assist him in seeking employment, and may in the meantime if he think fit keep such Vagrant in charge of the Police. Should the Vagrant fail to obtain suitable employment within a reasonable time not exceed- ing at the most seven days, such Magistrate shall forward him to a House of Detention as provided in Section 6.

10. Every person while in charge of the Police under this Ordinance or whilst seeking employment shall be entitled to the same maintenance and subject to the same regulations as prisoners detained on remand.

in the mean- time Victoria Gaol declared as such.

(e.) Hours, meals, labour (other than penal labour) and general conduct. Always provided that such regulations may be specially modified in relation to Vagrants by any Code of Rules approved by the Governor in Council and that any money or effects of any Vagrant, may be applied towards the expense of carrying this Ordinance into execution for his benefit.

13. Any vagrant who knowingly disobeys any rule applicable to him or made under the previous section of this Ordinance shall be liable to the same punishment, and such punishment shall be awarded as if he were a mis- demeanant in Gaol.

14. The Superintendent of such House of Detention shall forward weekly to the Harbour Master a list of such Vagrants under his charge as are seamen, and shall other- wise use his best endeavours to obtain suitable employment outside such house for the Vagrants admitted thereto.

15. When such employment is obtained, any Vagrant refusing or neglecting to avail himself thereof shall, on con- viction before a Magistrate, be liable to imprisonment with hard labour for a term not exceeding one month.

16. If, after the lapse of a reasonable time no suitable employment is obtainable for any such Vagrant, the Super- intendent of the House of Detention in which he is detained may either (when such vagrant has entered into an agree- ment as hereinafter mentioned) cause him to be removed from the Colony, or he may cause Sections 25 and 28 of this Ordinance to be read to such Vagrant and may then release him.

17. The cost of the removal from the Colony of any Vagrant under this Ordinance shall be defrayed by the Government subject to the provisions hereinafter contained for its refund.

18. Any Vagrant or other person other than a Chinese may enter into an agreement in writing with the Superin- tendent of any House of Detention or with the Colonial Secretary, binding himself to embark on board such ship and at such time as may be named in such agreement for the purpose of being removed from Hongkong at the ex- pense, if any, of the Government of this Colony, to remain on board until such ship shall have arrived at the port of destination, and not to return to Hongkong within five years.

19. Every such agreement may be on unstamped paper and shall be in the form set forth in the Schedule to this Ordinance or as near thereto as may be.

20. Whenever any person, not a Chinese, lands in this Colony or being a non-commissioned officer or soldier in Her Majesty's Ariny leaves that army in this Colony under an engagement to serve any person, company, or association, or body of persons in any capacity, and whenever any sailor other than a Chinese sailor is discharged from his ship in this Colony and such person, non-commissioned officer, soldier or sailor becomes chargeable to the Colony as a Vagrant within a period of six months after his arrival here or after his leaving the Army or discharge from his ship as the case may be, then the person, company, association or body to serve whom he has so landed in Hongkong, left the Army, or, in the case of a sailor, the person who was at the date of his discharge the owner or agent of the ship from which such sailor has been so discharged, shall be liable to pay to the Goverument the cost of his removal under this Ordinance and all other charges incurred by the Colony in consequence of his becoming a Vagrant.

21. Every Master of a ship landing or allowing to land in this Colony any person other than a Chinese who at the time of his landing is obviously destitute of means of sub- sistence or does actually become so within a period of six months from the date of landing shall be liable to repay to the Government of this Colony all costs and charges incurred by the Colony in consequence of such person becoming a Vagrant unless such Master satisfy the Court that he made

:

due enquiry as to the person so landed or allowed to land, and that he had reason to believe such person was possessed of means of subsistence.

22. In the absence of such Master of a vessel the Owner, Agent, or Consignee of such vessel at the time the person who subsequently became a Vagrant was allowed to land shall be liable to pay the said costs and charges on his behalf.

23. Such costs and charges shall be recoverable by suit as if an express agreement to repay them had been entered into with the Colonial Secretary by the Person, Company, Association, Body, Owner, Agent, or Consignce chargeable.

24. In any proceeding under this Ordinance a certified copy of the declaration recorded under Section 3 shall be prima facie evidence that the person named therein has been and that he was a Vagrant at the date of such declara- tion.

RE-VACCINATION.

By vaccination in infancy, if thoroughly well-performed and successful, most people are completely insured, for their whole life-time, against an attack of small-pox; and in the proportionately few cases where the protection is less complete, small-pox, if it be caught, will, in consequence of the vaccination, generally be so mild a disease as not to threaten death or disfigurement. If however the vaccination in early life has been but imperfectly performed, or has from any other cause been but imperfectly successful, the protection against small-pox is much less satisfactory; neither lasting so long, nor while it lasts being nearly so complete, as the protection which first-rate vaccination gives. Hitherto, unfortunately, there has always been a very large quantity of imperfect vaccination; and in consequence the population always contains very many persons who, though nominally vaccinated and believing themselves to be protected against small-pox, are really liable to infection, and may in some cases contract as severe forms of small-pox as if they had never been vaccinated. Partly because of the existence of this large number of imperfectly vaccinated persons, and partly because also even the best infantine vac- cination sometimes in process of time loses more or less of its effect, it is advisable that all persons who have been vaccinated in infancy should, as they approach adult life, undergo RE-VACCINATION. Generally speaking, the best time of life for re-vaccination is about the time when growth is completing itself, say from 15 to 18 years of age; and persons in that period of life ought not to delay their re-vaccination till times when there shall be special alarm of small-pox. In proportion, 'however, as there is prevalence of small-pox in any neighbourhood, or as individuals are from personal circumstances likely to meet chances of infection, the age of 15 needs not be waited for; especially not by young persons whose marks of previous vaccination are unsatisfactory. In circumstances of special danger, every one past childhood, on whom re-vaccination has not before been successfully performed, ought without delay to be re-vaccinated.

      Re-vaccination, once properly and successfully performed, does not appear ever to require repetition. The nurses and other servants of the Small-pox Hospital when they enter the service (unless it be certain that they have already had small- pox) are invariably submitted to vaccination, which in their case generally is re-vaccination, and is never afterwards repeated ; and so perfect is the protection, that though the nurses live in the closest and most constant attendance on small-pox patients, tand though also the oher servants are in various ways exposed to special chances of infection, the Resident Surgeon of the Hospital, during his thirty-four years of office there, has never known small-pox affect any one of these nurses or servants.

If however the vaccination in early life has been but imperfectly performed, or has from any other cause been but imperfectly successful, the protection against small-pox is much less satisfactory; neither lasting so long, nor while it lasts being nearly so complete, as the protection which first-rate vaccination gives. Hitherto, unfortunately, there has always been a very large quantity of imperfect vaccination; and in consequence the population always contains very many persons who, though nominally vaccinated and believing themselves to be protected against small-pox, are really liable to infection, and may in some cases contract as severe forms of small-pox as if they had never been vaccinated. Partly because of the existence of this large number of imperfectly vaccinated persons, and partly because also even the best infantine vac- cination sometimes in process of time loses more or less of its effect, it is advisable that all persons who have been vaccinated in infancy should, as they approach adult life, undergo RE-VACCINATION. Generally speaking, the best time of life for re-vaccination is about the time when growth is completing itself, say from 15 to 18 years of age; and persons in that period of life ought not to delay their re-vaccination till times when there shall be special alarm of small-pox. In proportion, 'however, as there is prevalence of small-pox in any neighbourhood, or as individuals are from personal circumstances likely to meet chances of infection, the age of 15 needs not be waited for; especially not by young persons whose marks of previous vaccination are unsatisfactory. In circumstances of special danger, every one past childhood, on whom re-vaccination has not before been successfully performed, ought without delay to be re-vaccinated.

      Re-vaccination, once properly and successfully performed, does not appear ever to require repetition. The nurses and other servants of the Small-pox Hospital when they enter the service (unless it be certain that they have already had small- pox) are invariably submitted to vaccination, which in their case generally is re-vaccination, and is never afterwards repeated ; and so perfect is the protection, that though the nurses live in the closest and most constant attendance on small-pox patients, tand though also the oher servants are in various ways exposed to special chances of infection, the Resident Surgeon of the Hospital, during his thirty-four years of office there, has never known small-pox affect any one of these nurses or servants.

This Standard Work on the Chinese Language, constructed on the basis of Kanghi's Imperial Dictionary, contains all Chinese characters in practical use, and while alphabetically arranged according to the sounds of the oldest dialect of China, the Cantonese, it gives also the Mandarin pronunciation of all characters explained in the book, so that its usefulness is by no means con- fined to the Cantonese Dialect, but the work is a practically complete Thesaurus of the whole Written Language of China, ancient and modern, as used all over the Empire, whilst its intro- ductory chapters serve the purposes of a philolo- gical guide to the student.

A Supplement, arranged for being bound and used by itself, and containing a List of the Radicals, an Index, and a List of Surnames, will be published and sold separately.

C.S.O.

2043 of 1887.

G. WILLIAM DES VEUX.

(1.)

         The Governor recommends the Council to vote the sum of Three hundred Dollars as a $300. Colonial contribution towards the maintenance of the Royal Naval Seamen's Club.

It is not unusual for Colonies, the water of which are frequented by Her Majesty's ships, to give assistance to similar institutions, which provide amusement, food, and lodging for the Seamen, and thus attract them from undesirable and injurious places of resort.

254

C.S.O. 2791 of 1887,

and

THE HONGKONG GOVERNMENT GAZETTE, 10TH MARCH, 1888.

The Commodore has represented the difficulty of maintaning this Club on account of the heavy cost of rent and taxes, and has requested the remission of the latter. But while deeming it right to give some assistance in recognition of the usefulness of the institution, the Governor regards this particular form of concession as likely to become an inconvenient precedent, and he therefore recommends the above vote, the amount of which is the same as the contribution of the Admiralty.

Government House, Hongkong, 22nd February, 1888.

G. WILLIAM DES VEUX.

(2.)

    The Governor recommends the Council to vote the sum of Five hundred and Eighty-eight 395 of 1sss. Dollars, for the salaries of Collector, Assistant Collector and Coolie employed in the Treasury

$588. for collecting Village Taxes and Squatter's Licence Fees.

These items were inadvertently omitted in the Treasurer's Estimates for 1888.
