PART I.
HISTORICAL AND STATISTICAL,




(I.)Historical and Statistical Abstract.
The following abstract will be completed in the next issue of the
Civil List by the addition of tables for the two first decades of the
Colony's existence.
The Principal Events and notes on Trade and Industry for the
period prior to the close of Sir John Pope Hennessy's administration
in March, 1882, have been taken largely from Dr. E. J. Eitel's History
of Hongkong. The information under these headings subsequent to
that date has been mainly extracted from official publications. The
notes on Public Works have been furnished by the Director of that
department. In the brief summary of Legislation the Ordinances in
force at the end of 1901 have been given the numbers they bear in Sir
John Carrington's edition.
Under the heading Trade the figures dealing with ships cleared and
entered exclude steam-launches and junks whether engaged in foreign
or local trade. The excess in numbers of emigrants returned over
emigrants left is accounted for by many that leave from various Treaty
Ports of China returning via Hongkong.
Under Finance the percentage of expenditure devoted to Non-
effective Charges is based on the inclusion under that head of Pensions
and Interest. General Administration covers the Governor's Office, the
Colonial Secretary's, Registrar General's and Audit Departments, the
Treasury, the Post Office, the Harbour Department, the Observatory,
Charitable Allowances, Transport and Miscellaneous Services. Law and
Order include the Supreme Court, Magistracy, Law Officers, Land
Registry, Police, Fire Brigade and Gaol. The Botanical and Afforesta-
tion as well as the Medical and Sanitary Departments are included
under Public Health. Public Instruction comprises the Education
Department, Queen's College and Ecclesiastical Allowances; Public
Works covers the Public Works establishment as well as annually
recurrent and extraordinary works. Defence includes the Military
Contribution and Volunteers.
The statistics given under Climate were obtained from various
sources prior to 1884 when the Observatory at Kowloon was established.
The Population statistics prior to 1869 are exclusive and for that
and subsequent years inclusive of the Army and Navy in the Colony.
Except for the year 1904, when the population of New Kowloon, i.e.
of the New Territories South of the Kowloon Hills, is included, these
statistics do not take those Territories into consideration. The popula-
tion of the New Territories according to the Census taken in 1901 was
102,254 of which 17,243 were in New Kowloon.


4
Under Public Instruction the figures given from the year 1875
onward show the number of Grant-in-Aid Schools in place of the num-
ber of Mission Schools and the average daily attendance in place of the
total number of scholars as the progress of education is considered to
be thereby more correctly indicated. In the earlier years the total
number of schools under European supervision and of scholars enrolled
in them are alone available.
The statistics under the heading Public Order require no comment.
Those under Defence referring to regular troops are taken from returns
by the Principal Medical Officer.

INFORMATION AS TO APPOINTMENTS.




1,-CONDITIONS OF SERVICE.
(I.)MEMORANDUM OF INFORMATION WITH REGARD
TO HONGKONG, STRAITS SETTLEMENTS,
AND FEDERATED MALAY STATES
CADE TS HIP S.
1. With the view of supplying the Civil Service of Hongkong, the
Straits Settlements, and the Federated Malay States, Cadetships have
been established, the holders of which are required to serve in either of
the above mentioned Colonies or in the States, and to devote themselves
for a certain time after their arrival in the East to learning a native
language. Cadets appointed to this service will in the first instance be
allotted to the States or to one or other of the Colonies, and will, as a
rule, look for promotion only in the States or in that Colony, but it
must be distinctly understood that they will be liable to be transferred
at any time from one to another, at the discretion of the Secretary of
State, without being given compensation for any special local privileges
or allowances.
2. The Cadets, who must be natural-born British subjects of Euro-
pean descent, are selected by open competitive examination* held by
the Civil Service Commissioners, to whom all inquiries on the subject
should be addressed.
The examination for these appointments will, as a rule, be held in
the month of August, in those years in which vacancies have occurred,
simultaneously with the examination for the Civil Service of India.
Candidates must be between the ages of t 21 and 24 i on the first day of
August in the year in which the examination is held.
3. The selected Candidates will be expected to leave England about
a month after the results of the examination are announced.
4. Each Cadet will receive salary at the rate of £225 per annum,
half salary to commence from the day of leaving England, and full
salary from the date of his arrival in the Colony or State to which he
* A separate paper is issued by the Civil Service Commission, containing information
in regard to the Examination.
f In reckoning age for competition, members of the Militia, the Imperial Yeomanry,
the Honourable Artillery Company, or the Volunteers (whether commissioned or non-
commissioned), may deduct from their actual age any time spent on actual military
service in connection with the war in South Africa, such time being reckoned by the
number of days for which they received Army Pay.
J After 1905 the limits of age will be '22 and 24 on the first day of August in the
year in which the examination is held.


52
may be sent. A free passage to the Colony or State will he provided
for the Cadet, subject to an undertaking to refund the cost of his
passage in the event of his relinquishing the appointment within three
years for any other reason than mental or physical infirmity.
5. Every Cadet on arrival in the Colony or State to which he may
be sent will be subject to any regulations as to Cadets (not inconsistent
with this paper) which may from time to time be made by the Local
Government, including regulations as to examinations in native lan-
guages, &c. A Cadet who has passed such examinations is paid at the
rate of £300 per annum until he obtains a substantive appointment.
Should a Cadet remain three years, after passing his examinations
without obtaining a substantive appointment his salary will be increased
to £350.
6. A Cadet will be liable to be dismissed if at any time his pro-
gress in his studies or his conduct shall be considered by the Govern-
ment to be so unsatisfactory as to render such a course desirable. The
Government will decide, having regard to the ground of dismissal
whether the Cadet shall be sent home at the public expense, or shall be
left to find his own way home.
7. Subject to the necessities of the service, leave of absence on half
salary may be granted after a period of six years' resident service
without any special grounds. It may be given before the expiration of
that period in cases of serious indisposition, or of urgent private affairs.
In the absence of special grounds, the leave in such case must not exceed
one-sixth of the officer's resident service; on special grounds it may
exceed that period by six months. In addition to the above, vacation
leave on full pay may be granted, if no inconvenience or expense is
caused thereby, not exceeding three months in any two years.
8. The present rule as to superannuation is that in the case of ill
health an officer may be allowed to retire on a pension after ten full
years' resident service; otherwise he must have attained the age of 55.
For ten full years' resident service fifteen-sixtieths of the average
annual salary of the retiring officer's fixed appointments for the three
years prior to retirement may be awarded, to which one-sixtieth may
be added for each additional year's service; but no addition will be
made in respect of any service beyond 35 years. For pension purposes
absence on vacation leave counts as full service, and leave on half pay
as half service.
9. A deduction of 4- per cent, is made from the salaries of all
Cadets as a contribution to one or other of the Widows' and Orphans'
Pension Funds of the two Colonies or of the Federated Malay States.


53
10- The currency of Hongkong, the Straits Settlements, and the
Federated Malay States is a silver dollar currency, and for purposes of
local payment the sterling salaries referred to in paragraphs 4 and 5 of
this print will be converted into dollars at a rate to be fixed by the
Government, and based upon the average exchange value of the dollar
during the month ending on the fifteenth of the month for which salary
is to be paid.
11. The Civil Service of these Colonies and States is at present
classified as follows, but no guarantee whatever is given that the num-
bers and conditions of the appointments or the salaries attached to them
will remain unaltered. Moreover, some of the posts included in these
classes are not exclusively confined to offioers originally appointed
as Cadets.

duties of his office, and that such infirmity is likely to be
permanent, nor in any case without a certificate from

the limit of age entitling him to retire on pension is

special circumstances of the case justify the grant to
him of a retiring allowance, he may, with the approval
of the Secretary of State, be given such retiring allow-

but in no case exceeding the amount for which his
length of service would qualify him under this minute

of the highest salary drawn by such officer at any time
in the course of his service. Such ordinary pensions
need not be reported to the Secretary of State except
(a) in the case of pensions payable in Great
Britain, when the amount awarded should
be simply reported to the Colonial Office,
and at the same time instructions given to
the Crown Agents to issue the pensions;
and
(b) in the case of officers who have served in
more than one Colony, in which case it is
desirable that the usual pension paper of
particulars should be sent to England inas-
much as the amount awarded may affect
the amount payable by other Colonial
Governments.

exceed £1,000 per annum.

short of the first degree of merit, the computation may
be made at lower rates.
3. Where the officer has been guilty of gross ne-
gligence, irregularity, or misconduct, no grant will be
made.
No. 12.
1. The service in respect of which pensions, retiring
allowances or gratuities will be granted must be un-
broken, except in cases where the service has been
interrupted by abolition of office, or other temporary
suspension of employment not arising from misconduct
or voluntary resignation. Also service prior to a break
of service may be allowed to count for pension together
with service subsequent to such break if the whole inter-
vening period has with the previous sanction of the
Governor in Council been spent in some other employ-
ment under the Crown.
2. No service other than service on the Fixed Estab-
lishment on full or half pay will be taken into account
in computing pensions or retiring allowances, except
that, where the service on the Fixed Establishment has
been immediately preceded by an unbroken period of
service on the temporary establishment, or of service
paid for out of an open vote or of both such services,
such period will be taken into account. Provided al-
ways that of the period of service paid for out of an
open vote not more than two-thirds shall be counted for
the purpose of this clause. Leave of absence on half
salary will only be counted at the rate of one month for
every two months of such leave, provided that vacation
leave, in cases where full salary is not available, shall
be counted as though it were leave with full salary. But
leave taken before the end of 1886, inclusive of vacation
leave taken (after June, 1876,) in conjunction with
half pay leave will, to the extent of one-sixth of an
officer's resident service, be counted as full service for
pension.

purposes, in the case of Cadets as well as of other officers,
at the date on which they commence to draw salar}T,
provided that if a Cadet fails to pass the final examina-
tion in the native language within the prescribed period,
the period by which the date of his passing his final
examination is overdue will be deducted from his term
of service when his claims to pension are considered.
4. Notwithstanding anything hereinbefore contained
a period not exceeding one year during which an officer
is absent on leave without salary such leave being grant-
ed on grounds of public policy may be counted for the
purpose of this clause as service on full pay.
No. 13.
1. For the purpose of computing retiring allowances, Hovv salarv to
the salary of the permanent appointment held by the cmnuio officer at the date of retirement will be taken if he has pension purposes,
held such office or an office with the same salary for a
period of three years immediately preceding such date ;
otherwise the average amount of the salary of the per-
manent appointments held by the officer during the three
years immediately preceding his retirement will be
taken.
2. For the purpose of this clause salary includes per-
sonal allowance equivalent to salary, but no other emo-
lument whatever.

himself ready to be recalled to service, and with the
understanding that he will be re-employed as oppor-
tunity offers in preference to new applicants for office.
2. If the officer whose office is abolished is not
qualified for other employment, or if there is no reason
in the opinion of the Governor to expect that he can be
shortly re-employed, a pension may be granted to him
free from the conditions as to re-employment mentioned
in this cluse.
3. In the case of an officer whose office is abolished
his pension shall be at the rate of the number of six-
tieths of his salary exceeding the number of the com-
pleted years of his service by the number following
(that is to say) :


(a) In the case of an officer who has served
twenty years, ...........................10
(b) In the case of an officer who has served

than ten years, ......................... 5
(d) In the case of an officer who has served
less than ten years but not less than
five years, ................................ 3
(e) In the case of an officer who has served
less than five years,..................... 1
4. No addition shall be made under this clause to an
officer's period of service so as to entitle him to a higher
pension than he would have been entitled to had he
been retained in the service until he attained the age
of sixty years.

such allowance shall together with the pension exceed
fifty-sixtieths of his salary and emoluments at the date
of the injury.


81

tioned maximum by such amount as the Governor in
Council shall think reasonable in the following cases :
(a) Where the injured man has continued to
serve for not less than one year after the
injury in respect of which he retires ;
(b) Where the injured man is fifty (50) years of
age or upwards at the date of the injury ; or

Crown, be awarded a pension at the rate of one seven
hundred-and-twentieth of the amount of his a'nnual



salary at the date of his so leaving the service of the
Colony as aforesaid for each calendar month of his ser-
vice in the Colony, and in calculating such service in

ment in tropical climates; provided that no such addi-
tion shall be made unless such officer has been employed
for ten years in all in tropical climates ; provided also
that such addition shall in no case be greater than
would make his total service under the Crown forty

Court who is transferred to or from the service of the
Colony from or to other service under the Crown and is
not entitled to a pension under clause 2 of these Regula-
tions shall, if his aggregate service under the Crown in
this Colony and elsewhere would have entitled him had
it been wholly in this Colony to a pension under that
clause, be entitled on his ultimate retirement to a pension
at the rate of two seven-hundred-and-twentieths of the
amount of his annual salary at the date of his retirement
(if he ultimately retires as a Judge of the Supreme Court
of this Colony) or at the date of his being so transferred

I.GENERAL ORDERS.
Heads of Departments are enjoined to make themselves thoroughly
acquainted with the General Orders arid are held personally responsible
that copies of them are accessible to all Officers of their Department, and
are kept up to date by the insertion of any corrections or additions which
may be issued from time to time.
(I)OFFICIAL CORRESPONDENCE.
1.(1.) Letters addressed to Government must be confined
to a single subject.
(2.) The paragraphs of each letter should be numbered, and
if a letter consists of two or more sheets the pages shouid be
numbered.
(3.) Any documents or previous correspondence referred to
must be quoted by number and date.
(4.) Enclosures should be specifically noted in the margin of
the letter and be clearly marked as Enclosure.........in..........
(5.) Letters must be clearly written, or typed where that
is possible, on foolscap paper with the left quarter margin
of odd-numbered pages and the right quarter margin of even
pages left blank. The blank margins will thus be on the same
side of the paper and admit of binding.
(6.) To avoid the inconvenience caused by papers of different
sizes, all paper used must be cut to the size of the "Jackets''
used in the Colonial Secretary's Office.
(7.) The use of fly sheets to letters should be discontinued.
2.(1.) "Jackets" or Minute Papers for official correspond-
ence are to consist of a single sheet only. This measure is
intended to obviate the difficulty experienced in writing on
bulky files and in attaching further papers to them. All official
papers shall be kept flat and not folded.


92
(2.) From the 1st January, 1903, all documents registered in
the Colonial Secretary's Office have been given numbers from one
annual series and must be quoted only by the jacket number
and the date of the year, the letters C.O.D. (Despatches), C.S.O.
(general correspondence), C. (Confidential), L. (Licence), T.M.
(Trade Marks ), being added as the case may be.
(3.) Minutes must only be written in the space provided
below the subject matter and also on page 2, the quarter mar-
gins being left blank as in letters. They must be in consecutive
order. Should further minutes become necessary, additional
sheets will be added. Meads of Departments are requested to
see that odd memoranda from one clerk to another are not
written on official papers, which should bear nothing not con-
ducing towards the disposal of the question concerned. They
should also abstain from sending in to Government letters and
memoranda from subordinates when they can shortly embody
all necessary information in their own reports or letters. This
will save trouble and delay in reading through documents.
(4.) Tags for attaching the "Jackets" to correspondence
should be used, and all papers attached to files are to be care-
fully punched for the purpose; by this means the examination
of files will be much facilitated: the use of paper fasteners and
pins is deprecated.
(5.) Reports and memoranda which Departments may have to
put up with registered documents referred to them, are to be
properly attached in their place and small flimsy papers must
be mounted on paper of foolscap size.
(6.) When "Jackets" are passed to the Colonial Secretary's
Office from other Departments already docketed, as required
where the subject is new and no recent former papers exist, the
"subject matter" should be stated briefly, commencing where
possible with a suitable catch-word. The rest of the docket
should be as concise as is compatible with a short description of
the contents of the letter concerned. The official rank of the
writer should head the "Jacket" and not his name. Letters
referring to previous correspondence need not be jackete l.
(7.) No comments are to be made on minutes to which at-
tention is not specially called and to which replies are not mani-
festly required. Replies to letters and minutes should be con-
fined to the particular point in question and collateral questions
or matters of principle arising must be separately submitted.


93
(8.) The copying of official correspondence passing* through
Departments should be kept down to the lowest practicable
limit, a note of the order or final decision bein^ generallv
sufficient for all practical purposes. The serial copying of
minutes in extenso is waste of time and labour, as most papers
can be had from the Colonial Secretary's Office for reference if
and as required.
(9.) All information which is intended to be conveyed to
subordinates through the medium of the Colonial Secretary's

-3(I.)-Historical and Statistical Abstract. The following abstract will be completed in the next i:c:sue of the Civil List by the addition of tables for the two first dPcades of the Colony's existence. The Principal Events and notes on Trade and Industry for the period prior to the close of Sir John Pope Hennessy's administration in March, 1882, have been taken largely from Dr. E. J. Eitel's History of Hongkong. The information under these headings subsequent to that date has been mainly extracted from official publications. The notes on Public fVorks have been furnished by the Director of that department. In the brief summary of Le,gislation the Ordinances in force at the end of 1901 have been given the numbers they bear in Sir John Carrington's edition. Under the heading Trade the figures dealing with ships cleMed and entered exclude steam-launches and junks whether engaged in foreign or local trade. The excess in numbers of emigmnts returned over emigrants l~ft is accounted for by many that leave from various Treaty Ports of China returning via Hongkong. Under Finance the percentage of expenditure devoted to Non effective Cha1ges is based on the inclusion under that head of Pensions and Interest. General Administmtion covers the GoYernor's Office, the Colonial Secretary's, Registrar General's and Audit Departments, the Treasury, the Post Office, the Harbour Department, the Observatory, Charitable Allowances, Transport and Miscellaneous Services. Law and Order include thA Supreme Court, Magistracy, Law Officers, Land Registry, Police, Fire Brigade and Gaol. The Botanical and Afforesta tion as well as the Medical and Sanitary Departments are included under Public Health. Public Instruction comprises the Education Department, Queen's College and Ecclesiastical Allowances ; Publir Works covers the Public Works establishment as well as annually recurrent and extraordinary works. Dej ence includes the Military Contribution and Volunteers. The statistics given under Climate were obtained from various sources prior to 1884 when the Observatory at Kowloon was established. The Popitlation statistics prior to 1869 are exclusive and for that and subsequent years inclusive of the Army and Navy in the Colony. Except for the year 1904, when the population of New Kowloon, i.e. of the New Territories South of the Kowloon Hills, is included, these statistics do not take those Territories into consideration. The popula tion of the New Territories according to the Census taken in 1901 was 102,254 of which 17,243 were in New Kowloon.

PAGE 10

-4Under Public Instruction the figurrs given from the year 187 5 onward show the number of Grant-in-Aid Schools in place of the num ber of Mission Schools and the average daily attendance in place of the total number of scholars as the progress of education is considered to be thereby more correctly indicated. In the earlier years the total number of schools under European supervision and of scholars enrolled in them are alone available. The statistics under the heading Pul,lic Orde1 require no comment. Those under D~fence referring to regular troops are taken from returns by the Principal Medical Officer. GoYEHN~IENT Hot:SE, Deccmbe1 28th, 1905. M. NATHAN.

Should a Cadet remain three years, after passing his examinations without obtaining a substantive appointment his salary will be increased to 6. A Cadet will be liable to be dismissed if at any time his pro gress in his studies or his conduct shall be considered by the Govern ment to be so unsatisfactory as to render such a course desirable. The Government will decide, having regard to the ground of dismissal whether the Cadet shall be sent home at the public expense, or shall be left to find his own way home. 7. Subject to the necessities of the service, leave of absence on half salary may be granted after a period of six years' resident service without any special grounds. It may be given before the expiration of that period in cases of serious indisposition, or of urgent private affairs. In the absence of special grounds, the leave in such case must not exceed one-sixth of the officer's resident service; on special grounds it may exceed that period by six months. In addition to the above, vacation leave on full pay may be granted, if no inconvenience or expense is caused thereby, not exceeding three months in any two years. 8. The present rule as to superannuation is that in the case of ill health an officer may be allowed to retire on a pension after ten full years' resident service; otherwise he must have attained the age of 55. For ten full years' resident service fifteen-sixtieths of the average annual salary of the retiring officer's fixed appointments for the three years prior to retirement may be awarded, to which one-sixtieth may be added for each additional year's service; but no addition will be made in respect of any service beyond 35 years. For pension purposes absence on vacation leave counts as full service, and leave on half pay as half service. 9. A deduction of 4 per cent. is made from the salaries of all Cadets as a contribution to one or other of the widows' and Orphans' Pension Funds of the two Colonies or of the Federated Malay States.

Should further minutm; become nocessary, additional sheets will be added. Heads of Departments are requested to see that odd memoranda from one clerk to another are not written on official pnpers, which should bear nothing not con ducing towards the disposal of the question concerned. They should also abstain from sending in to Government letters and memoranda from subonlinates when they can shortly embody all necessary information in their own reports or letters. This will save trouble and delay in reading through documents. ( 4.) Taga for attaching the "Jadrnts" to correspondence should be used, and all rxipers attached to files are to be care fully puni:hed for the p11rpos2; by this means the examination of files will be much facilitated: ths use of p01per fasteners and pins is deprecated. ( 5.) Reports and memoranda which Departments may have to put up with registered documents referred to them, are to be properly attached in their place and small flimsy papers must be mounted on paper of foolscap size. (6.) When "Jackets" are passed to the Colonial Secretary's Office from other Departments already dodrnted, as required where the subject is new and no recent fonrn::ir papers exist, the "subject matter" should be stated briefly, commencing where possible with a suitable catch-word. The rest of 'the docket should be as concise as is compa.tible with a short description of the contents of the letter concerned. The official rank of the writer should head the "Jacket" and not his name. Letters referring to previous correspondence need not be jackete 1. (7.) No comments are to be made on minutes to which at tention is nut specially called and to which rnplies are not mani festly required. Replies to letters and minutes should be con fined to the partienlar point in question anll collateral questions ot matters oE principle arising must bo separately submitted.

The copying of official corrnspondence passing through Departments should be kept down to the lowest practit.:ahle limit, a note of the order or fi1ml decision being generally sufficient for all practical purposus. The serial copying of minutes in c,?'tenso is waste of time and labour, as most p:1pers r,m be had from the Colonial Secretary's Office for rnference if and as required. (9.) All inforrnatilm which is intended to be conveyed to subordinates through tlto medium of the U()lonial s~cretarv's Office minutes sho~1lcl be conveved to t ho officers coneernecl in writing by the Heads of their" Departments, and no fortlwr information, such as may be contained in preceding minutes, is to be shown or conveyed to them without special sanction from the Colonial Secretary. 3. -Heads of Departments should send to the Colonial Secretary's Office without fail on the 1 st of every month a return of ulL C.S.O, documents which are in their ort.ce on that dav, showing subject matter, when received, and the reasons wl;y they have not been returned. 4.--(1.) Chinese clerks and messengers shall be instructed that, in writing Chinese cbaracters on envelopes addressed to HiR Excellency the Governor, they must use the proper title of i~if7CA or ~~:AA and not the improper term **BJi ( 2.)

In other Colonies Public Offices are generally granted in the name of His ~lajesty, and liolden during His jh\jesty's Pleasure. In some cases, it is specially provided by law that they shnll be grunted by tlie Governor or by the Gonrnor in Council or by some judicial authority, and in some few cases they are holden during good behaviour. 6.5. The general rule is, that all Public Offices of com,iderable rank, trust, and emolnmeut, should be granted by an Instrument nnder the Public Seal of the Colony in His .Majesty's name. The appointment may be maporting every such appointment by the first oppor tunity. ------------------------* In Hougk.ong the limits are not 01 ., or their equivalent~, but $1,000 or $2,000.

When a rncancv occurs in the second 01 middle clnss, the Governor re11orts it to the Secretarv of ~tate, tocrether with the LJ name and qualific:1tions of the person whoin he hns appointed to fill it provisio11ally and intends to fill it finally, which recommendation is almost uniformly followed. 69. When a vacancy occurs in the tl1ird or highest class, the Governor follows the same course as to reporting the vacancy and provisional appointment; hut he is distinctly to nppri,:;e the object of his choice that he holds the office in the strictest sense of the word provisionally only uritil his appointment is confirmed or superseded by His Majesty. He is at libel'ty also to recommend a candidate for the tirml appointment, but it must be distinctly understood that the ~ecretary of ~tate bas the power of recomnwnding another instdd. In t hesc cases the con tirma tion or other final appointment takes place in the form already mentioned. 70. It is of couree impossible to lay down any general rule for decidin~ in what cases the recommendation of a Governor nill, or wili~not, be ulti1natcly sanctioned and confinned by the King; l.mt in general it may by statc

156 -87. If in the course nf the inquiry forth er grounds of suspension are disclosed, the Governor, if he thinks fit to proceed upon such grounds, sbnll fnrnish the officer with a written statement there~, and shall take the same steps as arc above prescribed in respect of the original gronnds of snspension. 88. If in any case the Governor considers that tbe interests of the public service require that an officer should cease to exercise tlie powers and functions uf his office (as, for instancP, in the custody of public money) instnntly, or before the proceedings above prescribed can be completed, he may at once interdict the officcr from the exercise of tl1e powers and functions of l1is office. The Governor shall in all eases allow tlie interdicted officer to receive half the salary of his office, until proceedings for his suspension ha,e been taken, and mny in special cases allow a larger amount not exceeding the foll salary; but no sueh officer can be formally suspended from his office or de prived of his whole salary, except upon forrnnl proceedings as are above prescibed, which must in all cases be taken with as little delay as possible. 89. If upon the inquiry the Executive Council are of opinion that the officer deserves punishment, but not the foll penalty of suspension, the Uovernor may remove the officer to ::in office of lower rank in the service, or may reqnire him to serve in his original office at a reduced salary, eithe1 permanently or for a stated period, or may deduct a portion of salary due or about to become dne to the officer. 90. If the officer is suspended or otherwise punished as above mentioned the Governor shall, without loss of tim~, report the matter to the Secretary of State for approval and confirmation, transmitting the minutes of Council, the written stutements, and all material documents relating to the case, If the officer is suspended, the Governor sball at the same time transmit the usual return required in the case of a vacnncy. 91. If the officer is suspended, the Secretary of State, instead of confirming the suspension, may direct the Governor to suhject the officer to one ot the lesser punishments above mentioned ; or if, in lieu of suspension, the officer has been so punished by the Governor, the Secretary of State may direct the GoYerno"r to reduce or to increase the punishment already awarded.

Any officer, whether under suspension or not, who ahsents himself from the Colony without leave, will be held to have thereby vacated hi.-; officr. 96.-(d.) An officer who hns not becn nppointetl by virtue of a Commission or \\Tarrant from tliP Crown, :rnd whose rmoln ments do not 0xceed ()0 a year*, may bL~ dismissed by the Governo1 witliout the ]H'O('eedings above preFcribed ; but in evny such case the grounds of dismissal must be definitely stated in writing, nnd commnnicntc!il to the officer that he may have foll 011portunity of exculpating himself, nnd the matter m11!:'t be investigated by the Governor ,vith the aid of the head of the department (if any). In lieu of dismissal tl1e Gonrnor, ifhe thinks fit. mny remoYe t.he officer to a:1 office of l1nver rank in the service, or may require J1i111 to serve in his original office at a reducccl salary, either permanently or for a stnted period, or m,1y deduct n portion of salary due nr about to hecrme rlue, to the officer. Snch dismissal or" other punishment will not require the confirmation of the Secretary of State, but any rnemorinl from the dismi,-sed oflicer must be forwarded to t be Secretary of State without delay, with a short statl'lllCnt of the gro1111ds of dismissal or other punishtnlnt. ( III ).-SALARIES. 1 O..J.. On appointments to offices, half salary, when so dispos able by law, will be nl lowed, as a gcnernl rule, from the date of embarkation and foll salary from the date of arrival in the Colony : Provided that tlw officer proceeds direct to the Colony to which he is appointed, otherwise he will be allowed to draw half snlary for such time only as ordinarily elapses between the depnrture of the mail (if a11y) from the point of embarkation nncl its arrival in the Colony; or if there l>e no mail route between his point of embarkation and his point of arrival in the Colony, for such time as is ordimrily required to perform the journey between such two points. See foot-note to Regulation 6G.

PAGE 166

159 105. If, however, the office is a new one, or if for :my other reason there is no person drawing salary in respect of it, full salary may in special cases be allowe1l from the date of er11bark ntion. If, on the otber hand, the officer previously holding the appointment in the Co1ony continues in the tenur<~ of his office until the arrival of his successor, the latter offic('r will not be entitled to any portion of salary until Le has ass1m1ed the duties of his office. 106. Ko advance of salary is allowed to officers Eitlier on first appointment or on leave of absence, excPpt in very special cases, to be determined by the Secretary of State ; and the ofiicers to whom it may be granted must sign an agreement with the Crown Agents. Collateral security will be required when the advance exceeds a month's salary. lOi. If nny office be vacated, i11 any Colony, by the death or removal of the holdet", or by his temporary absence, the person appointed by the Governor to a<"t in his stead will receive half the salary of the office. ;-,hould such person be the bolder of another situation, but not performing the duties of it, he may receive half the sal:iry of tbe of1icc in which he is so appointed to act, together with half the salary of his own office>. 10~. Should the person so appointed by the Governor to a ,;acant office be required at the same time to perform the duties of his own office, he may be allowed half the salary of the temporary office, together with t lie whole salary of his own office; but as a general rule no person should be appointed tu di:,;charge at the same time the duties of two di,-tinct offices, whenever auy other arrangement may be practicable ; and unless the offices are distinct and separate offices in different l>epartnH~nts of the service, or offices not standing to one another in any intimate relation of superiority und ::-nbordination, such as two Police Mauistracies, onlv half salarv of fach oftice can be r-., J J allowed. 109. The fees of the vncrmt office ( in the absence of any usage or law to the contrary) should be paid into the Colonial Treasury, from whence the acting officer will receive one moiety, with such further portion as the Governor shall consider advisable, in case the services performed are of a special character or involve outlay.

PAGE 167

]60 110. Should the Officer whom the Governor has appointed temporarily to a vacant office be confirrneil iu the situation, he will be entitlell to draw the foll salary of tlmt office from the date at wl1ich he enterecl on the duties, if no portion of the salary during t l1at period has bevn drawn by tbe former occupant of the office; but from the date from w l1ich he draws such full salary, be will not be entitled to 8::tlary on account of any other office which he may have held at the same time. 111. If any Colonial officer desires 1nrt of bis salary to be paid by the Crown Agents in this country, lie must give his assent in writing to the following condition, viz., that the proposed part payment shall in no case be made until the Crown Agents have been furnished with a certificate from the proper Colonial authority to the effect that the officer continued to bold his appointment during the I eriod for which such part payment is claimed. 112. The Colonial Government, on timely application from the officer, is to transmit such a certificate tot he Crown Agents: furnishing tlie Officer with a duplicate. (IV).-LEAVE OF ABSENCE. 118. The Act of Pnrliament, 22 Geo. ;I., cap. 7 5, empowers the Governor and Council of any Colony to grant leave of absencJ to Colonial Officers, and the Act 57 and 58 Viet., cap. 17, regulates the conditions as to such leave. 119. Subject to the necessities of the senice leave of absence may be granted after a period of six years' resident serYice in the Colony or Colonies without any specinl grounds. It may be given before the expiration of that period in cases of serious indisposition, or of '' urgent private affairs," if the Governor and Council are satisfied that the indulgence is indispensable. In cases of serious iudisposition, the state of the officer's health must be certified by his medical attendant. In cases of" urgent private affairs," the nature of such urgent affairs must be stated to the Governor. Note.-An officer who has been transferred from one colony to another is not necessarily required to serve six years in the second colony before being granted leave of absence. The amount of leave, shewn on his leave certificate as his proper claim, is calculated according to the length of service in the latter colony, but in special _cases where an officer has served in

PAGE 168

161 -one colony for some years with little or no leave immediately precedin.~ his transfer to another colo11y, the Governor of the latter colony may, ns an act of grace, recommend him for special leave in respect of bis sel'vice in the former colony, snch recom mendation being accompanied by any necessary particulars of former service and last leave taken in respect thereof. 120. In the n bsence of special grounds the leave in such case must not exceed one-sixth of the officer's resident service. Un special grounds it may exceed that period by six months, but it mnst in neither case exceed t\Yelve months. 121. The Governor may report to the Secretary of State the period for which the leave may be extended without injury to the public service, but must not recommtnd such extension. The officer seeking an extension must apply at least one clear month before the time whtn he ought to start in order to reach the colony before the end of his existing leave. 122. Governors are required to report to the Secretary of State each case in which leave of absence has been granted; they must also transmit a Certificate in the proper form and a similar Certificate in case the Governor should afterwards re c,)mmend an extension of leave. If the officer is paid by fees, they must also report what arrnngements are made respecting the disposal of those fees d nring the officer's absence. 123. An officer to whom leave of al>sence has been granted, is in general entitled to half salary during his absence from the Colony. Any private arrangement made with the object of securing to the absent officer more than the authorised allowance is on no account to be allowed. 123A. \Yhen an officer receiYes, in addition to the salary of his appointme11t, an allowance granted to himself personally, and not permanently attached to bis office, he should, when absent on half-pay leave, draw only the half of such personal allowance, the remaining moiety of the allowance being left undrawn and lapsing to the Colonial Treasury. 124. Officers on leave rnny receive so much of their allowance for house rent as may not be wanted for the Acting Officers, the amount so allowed being reported to the Secretary of State ; but they must receive no part of their allowance for horse hire.

PAGE 169

162 125. Governors are to furnish every officer proceeding on leave of absence with n duplicate of the Certificate nbove men tioned ; nnd an abseut officer must procluce such Certificate to the Crown Agents for the Colonies in (,rder to receive his salary. A third copy of the Certificate should be trnnsmitted by the Colonial Government direct to the Crown Agents for the Colonies when the officer's snlary is to be paid through them, with nstructions to issue the salary accordingly, as it becomes due. 130. On arriYing in this country the officer on leave must report his arriYal by letter to the Colonial Office, mentioning the place of his residence, and he must similarly notify any -subsequent change of residence. Treasurers nnd Auditors of colonies, whose accounts are subject to Imprrial audit, should also send their address to the Comptroller and Audito1-General. 131. Leave of absence will be extended by the Secretary of State, but not as a matter of course, nor unless the public con venience admits of it. 132. Except in ,cry specinl cases, as of unbroken official residence in the Colony for fifteen years, no extensions will exceed six months at a time, nor will any officers on leave br, allowed to receive half salary at any one time for more than 24 months. l\ or for a period v,bich added to his previous absences on leave with half salary, would exceed by six months one-sixth of bis resident service in the Colony. Absence without salary will not bPcounted against him in calculating bis claim for 'further leave of absence nor for him, with certain exceptions, in calculating his pension. 133. The foregoing regulations are 11ot designed to prevent, or to regulate, any vncation for the purpose of relaxation from business, not exceeding, in the ca,e of ordinary Civil Officers, three months in any two years. In the case of ,Judicial or Educational Officers, tlie vacation leave may extend to, but must not exceed, the ordinary vacations of the court to which they belong, or the institution in wliich they are employed ; and they may, when absent on half-pay leave, receive full pay during any ordinary vncation of such court or institution which may be included in the period of their lea\'e of absence. In Colonies where there is no ordinary vacation of the court or no vacation exceeding one month at one time, Judicial Officers may have the leave allowed to ordinary Civil Officers. Y acation leave need not be reported to the Secretary of State unless the officer intends or is likely to visit England, in which case his departure

PAGE 170

163 must be reported ns required when leave of absence is granted. There is no abatement of snbry during vacation leave; but the leave must he recorded under the Governor's hand, and the officer absenting himself must, with the concurrence or sanction of the Governor, have made such arrangements as may be necessary for the adequate discharge of his duties without cost to the pn blic. 134. In cases where an offic
PAGE 171

--164 -154. No outfit is allowed on any occasion. (VI).-COLONIAL UNIFORMS. 162. The Unifqrm of the Third Class will be worn by Officers Administering the Government of any Colony, but not holding the rank of Lieutenant-Governor, anr1 may be worn by Members of the Colonial Ministry in Colonies h1wing l{esponsible Government, and b_v Official :Members of the Court of Policy in British Guiana, and of Executive Councils or Councils of Government in other Colonies. 163. Subject to the sanction of His Majesty, obtained through the Secretary of State, the Uniform of the Fourth Class may be worn by Heads of Principal Depnrtm<'nts not having a seat in the Executive Council, or Council of Government, or in the Legislature ; and the Uniform of the Fifth Class may be worn by Heads of S11bordinate Departments and Chief Assistants in the Principal Departments; but permission to wear the Uniform of the Fourth er Fifth Class shall not he given tn the holder of any office in regard to which the King shall not have sanctioned the use of such Uniform. Private ~ecretal'ies to Governors or Officers Administering the Gove,:1rnent of all Colonies may wear the Uniform of the Fifth C]ai,;,;. ( The following Circulnrs relate to Uniforms, viz., those of 15th February, 1~59; 14th ,Tuly, 1860 ; 16th July, 186--1 ; 17th February, 1873 ; .5th August, 1873; 19th November, 1873; 22nd December, 1873.) 164. No person is entitled without the consent of the King to wear tbe Uniform attached to any of-lice after he has ce:1sed to hold that office. Such consent can only be obtained on the recommend:1 tion of the Governor, made th l'ough the Secrntary of State, an l n:11y in cases of Ion;,!' or meritorious service. No retired officc:r will be allowed to wea1 any other Uniform than th:it which was attached to his office during his tenure of it and which he has actually worn. (VII).-CORRESPONDENOE OF INDIVIDUALS. 217. Persons in a Colony, whether Public Functionaries or private individuals, who have any representations of a public or private nature to make to Government, should address them to the Governor of the Colony ; or, if the Colony be a dependency of a Governor-in-Chief, then to the Officer in the immediate administration of its Government.

PAGE 172

16.) 218. The duty of the Governor or Administrntor of the Colony is to receive and act upon ench such representation as public expediency or justice to the individual may appear to rl'quire, with the assistance in certain cases of his Executive Council; and if be doubts what steps to tnke thereupon, or if public advantage may appear to require it, to c,m!,;ult or repo t to the Secretary of State. Every individual has, however, the right to address the Secretary of State, if he thinks proper. But in this case he m11st transmit such communication, unsealed, and in triplicate, to the Governor or Administrator, applying to him to forward it in due course to the Secretary of State. 219. Every letter, memorial, or other document which may be received by the Secretary of State from a Colony ot her\vise than through the Governor, will, unless n. very pressiug urgency justifies a departure from the rule, be referred back to the Governor for his report. 220. This rule, requiring trarnnnission of correspondence with the Secretary of State through the Governor, is based on the strongest grounds of public convenience, in order that all communications mny be duly verified, as well as reported on, before they reach the Secretary of State. It extrnds, therefore, to communications relating to public affairs as well as the con cerns of the writer; to those of all Public Functionaries of whatever rank, and to those from public bodies. 221. Petitions addressed to the King, or King in Counci1, memorials to Public Officers or Bonrds in His Majesty's Gov ernment, etc., must be in like manner sent to the Governor for transmission home. 222. The GoYcrnor is bound to transmit to the Secretary of State every communication so received by him, accompanied by such report as its contents may appear to him to require. 223. He is to do this with all reasonable despatch, consist ently, however, with the delay requisite for the preparation of such report. 228. In any Report or Despatch addressed to the Secretary of State, care should be taken to refer the Secretary of State to former documents in his possession which may bear on the case, with their dates. Bnt this is not to prevent the writer from embodying the substance of such former documents in 11is Report or Despatch, if he judge that greater clearness or saving of labour is thereby attainable.

PAGE 173

166 (VIII).-REQUISITIONS FROM COLONIES. 272. All requisitions from the Co1onies for stores required from the United Kingdom, or from countries not bl-ing adjacent to a particular Co1ony, shall be made direct, in dup1icate, to the Cwwn Agents by the Colonial Governments if the expenditure bas been duly sanctioned. 27 3. If the expenditure has not been sanctioned the requisition mmt be transmitted to the Secretary of State in the first instance io dup1icate and not to the Crown Agents. 27 4A. In the latter case it is necessary that the requisition should be accompanied with all the expln.nations necessary for the guidance <.f the Secretary of State in determining whether it should or should not be cornp1ied with. 27 4B. The Crown Agents, being the Agents of the Colonial Governments, will comply with all requisitions sent to them' whith bear the signature of, or are forwarded hy, the proper officer of the Colonial Government in queE"tion, and they will not refer to the Secretary of State for instructions unless they ha\'e rea son to doubt whether under existing circurnstancl.'S any particular requisition i,;houkl be cornp1ied with. In all ca~es the Colnninl Governments will be held responsible that requisitions are not sent to the Crown Agents unless the expenditure invo1ved has been duly authorised in accordance with the preceding rules. 27 5. Hequisitions shall in no case be made directly or through local merchants upon firms in this country or on the Continent of Europe, although the names of firms, whose goods have given most satisfaction, or whom the Colonial Government8 may for other reasons wish to employ, may be mentioned in the body of the requisition, in order that they may be employed by the Crown Agents unless the Crown Agents for reasons which should be subsequently explained to the Colonial Governments concerned, consider that it is not for the interests of the Colony that they should be so employed. (IX).-PRESENTS. 421. Governors, Lieutenant-Governors, and all other servants of the Crown in a Colony, are prohibited during the continuance of their service in the Colony, from receiving presents, pecuniary or valuable ( other than the ordinary gifts of personal friends), which may be offered for their acceptance by the inhabitants of

PAGE 174

1G7 the Colony or m,y class of them, or by Kings, Chiefs, or other members of the native population in or neighbouring to the Colony, and from giving such presents. This rule applies not only to the officers themselves, but also to their families and officers are responsible for its obserrnnce by their families. It is not intended to apply to cases of remu neration for special service rendered, and paid for with the consent of the Government. The rule may be relaxed, with the special permission of the Secretary of State, upon an officer's final departure from the service of the Colony. Money, which has been subscribed with a view of marking public approbation of an officer's conduct, may be dedicated to objects of general utility and connected with the name of the person who has merited such a proof of the general esteem. 422. When presents from Kings, Chiefs, or other members of the native population in or neighbouring to the Colony, c::mnot be absolutely refused without giving offence, they are to be delivered up to the Government. To this rule there can be no except.ion, unless with the express sanction of the Secretary of State, whieh will be granted only on public aud not on personal grounds. 'When presents are exchanged between Governors or other officers acting on belialf of the Colonial Government in ceremo nial intercour~es with native Kings, Chiefa, or others, the pre sents received must be credited to the Government, and such return presents as may be snnctioned by the Secretary of State will be given at the Government expense.
