q0 i^ese have reason to complain of a British subject, the Consul shall no less listen
d1 J8 ^hofaint, and endeavour to settle it in a friendly manner. If disputes take
1 ace of such a nature that the Consul cannot arrange them amicably, then he shall

° a the case, and decide it equitably,
prot t* ‘£^-11.—The Chinese authorities shall at all times afford the fullest
l)e81ieC l

local fnsuit °1’ violence. In all cases of incendiarism or robbery, the
authorities shall at once take the necessary steps for the recovery of the stolen

property, the suppression of disorder, and the arrest of the guilty parties, whom they
will punish according to law.
Aid. XIX.—If any British merchant-vessel, while within Chinese waters, be-
plundered by robbers or pirates, it shall be the duty of the Chinese authorities to use
every endeavour to capture and punish the said robbers or pirates and to recover the
stolen property, that it may be handed over to the Consul for restoration to the owner.
Art. XX.—If any British vessel be at any time wrecked or stranded on the coast
of China, or be compelled to take refuge in any port within the dominions of the
Emperor of China, the Chinese authorities, on being apprised of the fact, shall
immediately adopt measures for its relief and security ; the persons on board shall
receive friendly treatment and shall be furnished, if necessary, with the means of
conveyance to the nearest Consular station.
Art. XXI.—If criminals, subjects of China, shall take refuge in Hongkong or
on board the British ships there, they shall, upon due requisition by the Chinese
authorities, be searched for, and, on proof of their guilt, be delivered up.
In like manner, if Chinese offenders take refuge in the houses or on board the
vessels of British subjects at the open ports, they shall not be harboured or concealed,
but shall be delivered up, on due requisition by the Chinese authorities, addressed to
the British Consul.
Art. XXII.—Should any Chinese subject fail to discharge debts incurred to a
British subject, or should he fraudulently abscond, the Chinese authorities will do their
utmost to effect his arrest and enforce recovery of the debts. The British authorities
will likewise do their utmost to bring to justice any British subject fraudulently
absconding or failing to discharge debts incurred by him to a Chinese subject.
Art. XXIII.—Should natives of China who may repair to Hongkong to trade
incur debts there, the recovery of such debts must be arranged for by the English
Court of Justice*on the spot; but should the Chinese debtor abscond, and be known
to have property real or personal within the Chinese territory, it shall he the duty of
the Chinese authorities on application by, and in concert with, the British Consul,
to do their utmost to see justice done between the parties.
Art. XXIV.—It is agreed that British subjects shall pay, on all merchandise
Imported or exported by them, the duties prescribed by the tariff*; hut in no case shall
they be called upon to pay other or higher duties than are required of the subjects
of any other foreign nation.
Art. XXV.—Import duties shall be considered payable on the landing of the
goods, and duties of export on the shipment of the same.
Art. XXVI.—Whereas the tariff fixed by Article X. of the Treaty of Nanking,,
and which was estimated so as to impose on imports and exports a duty of about
the rate of five per cent, ad valorem, has been found, by reason of the fall in value of
various articles of merchandise therein enumerated, to imp >se a duty upon these
considerably in excess of the rate originally assumed, as above, to be a fair rate, it is-
agreed that the said tariff shall be revised, and that as soon as the Treaty shall have
been signed, application shall be made to the Emperor of China to depute a high
offic r of the Board of Revenue to meet, at Shanghai, officers to be deputed on behalf
of the British Government, to consider its revision together, so that the tariff, as
revised, may come into operation immediately after the ratification of this Treaty.
Art. XXVII.—It is agreed that either of the high contracting parties to this
Treaty may demand a further revision of the tariff, and of the Commercial Articles of
this Treaty, at the end of ten years; but if no demand be made on either side within
six mouths after the end of the first ten years, the., the tariff shall remain in force for
ten years more, reckoned from the end of the preceding ten ye irs, and so it shall
be at the end of each successive ten years.
Art. XXVIII.—Whereas it was agreed in Article X. of the Treaty of Nanking
that British imports, having paid the tariff duties, should be conveyed into the interior,
free of all furrher charges, except a transit duty, the amount whereof was not to
exceed a certain percentage on tariff value; and whereas, no accurate information
having been furnished of the amount of such duty, British merchants have constant y

•complained that charges are suddenly and arbitrarily imposed by the provincial
authorities as transit duties upon produce on its way to the foreign market, and on
imports on their way into the interior, to the detriment of trade ; it is agreed that
within four months from the signing of this Treaty, at all ports now open to Britisli
trade, and within a similar period at all ports that may hereafter be opened, the
authority appointed to superintend the collection of duties shall be obliged, upon
application of the Consul, to declare the amount of duties leviable on produce between
the place of production and the port of shipment upon imports between the Consular
port in question and the inland markets named by the Consul; and that a notification
thereof shall be published in English and Chinese for general information.
But it shall be at the option of any British subject desiring to convey produce
purchased inland to a port, or to convey imports from a port to an inland market, to
clear his goods of all transit duties, by payment of a single charge. The amount of
this charge shall be leviable on exports at the first barrier they may have to pass, or,
’On imports at the port at which they are landed; and on payment thereof a certificate
shall he issued, which shall exempt the goods fromall further inland charges whatsoever.
It is further agreed that the amount of the charge shall be calculated, as nearly
as possible, at the rate of two and a half per cent, ad valorem, and that it shall be fixed
for each article at the conference to be held at Shanghai for the revision of the tariff.
It is distinctly understood that the payment of transit dues, by commutation or
otherwise, shall in no way affect the tariff duties on imports or exports, which will
continue to be levied separately and in full.
Art. XXIX.—British merchant vessels, of more than one hundred-and fifty tons
burden, shall be charged tonnage-dues at the rate of four mace per ton ; if of one
hundred and fifty tons and under, they shall be charged at the rate of one mace per ton.
Auy vessel clearing from any of the open ports of China for any other of the open
ports, or for Hongkong, shall be entitled, on application of the master, to a special
certificate from the Customs, on exhibition of which she shall be exempted from all
further payment of tonnage dues in any open ports of China, for a period of four
months, to be reckoned h’oui the port-clearance.
Art. XXX.—The master of any British merchant vessel may, within forty-eight
hours after the arrival of his vessel, but not later, decide to depart without breaking
bulk, in which case be will not be subject to pay tonnage-dues. But tonnage-dues
shall be held due after the expiration of the said forty-eight hours. No other fees or
charges upon entry or departure shall be levied.
Art. XXXI.—No tonnage-dues shall be payable on boats employed by British
subjects in the conveyance of passengers, baggage, letters, articles of provision, or
other articles not subject to duty, between any of the open ports. All cargo-boats,
however, conveying merchandise subject to duty shall pay tonnage-dues once in six
months, at the rate of four mace per register ton.
Art. XXXII.—The Consuls and Superintendents of Customs shall consult together
regarding the erection of beacons or lighthouses and the distribution of buoys and
lightships, as occasion may demand.
Art. XXXIII.—Duties shall be paid to the bankers authorised by the Chinese
Government to receive the same in its behalf, either in sycee or in foreign money,
according to the assay made at Canton on the thirteenth of July, one thousand eight
hundred and forty-three.
,, Xrt. XXXIV.—Sets of standard weights and measures, prepared according to
e standard issued to the Canton Custom-house by the Board of Revenue, shall be
U1 °™ity and prevent confusion.
i n y ’ XXXV,—Any British merchant vessel arriving at one of the open ports
a 1 ke at liberty to engage the services of a pilot to take her into port. In like
deT*^’ a^ei* s^e has discharged all legal dues and duties and is ready to take her
Parture, she shall be allowed to select a pilot to conduct her out of port.
Art- XXXVI.—Whenever a British merchant vessel shall arrive off one of the
in ports, the Superintendent of Customs shall depute one or more Customs officers

to guard the ship. They shall either live in a boat of their own, or stay on board the
ship, as may best suit their convenience. Their food and expenses shall be supplied
them from the Custom-house, and they shall not be entitled to any fees whatever
from the master or consignee. Should they violate this regulation, they shall be
punished proportionately to the amount exacted.
Art. XXXVII.—Within twenty-four hours after arrival, the ship’s papers,
bills of lading, etc., shall be lodged in the hands of the Consul, who will within a
further period of twenty-four hours report to the Superintendent of Customs the name
of the ship, her registered tonnage, and the nature of her cargo. If, owing to neglect
on the part of the master, the above rule is not complied with within forty-eight
hours after the ship’s arrival, he shall be liable to a fine of fifty taels for every day’s
delay; the total amount of penalty, however, shall not exceed two hundred taels.
The master will be responsible for the correctness of the manifest, which shall
contain a full and true account of the particulars of the cargo on board. For
presenting a false manifest, he will subject himself to a fine of five hundred taels; but
he will be allowed to correct, within twenty-four hours after delivery of it to the customs
officers, any mistake he may discover in his manifest without incurring this penalty.
Art. XXXVIII.—After receiving from the Consul the report in due form, the
Superintendent of Customs shall grant the vessel a permit to open hatches. If the
master shall open hatches, and begin to discharge any goods, without such permission,
he shall be fined five hundred taels, and the goods discharged shall be confiscated wholly.
Art. XXXIX.—Any British merchant who has cargo to land or ship must apply
to the Superintendent of Customs for a special permit. Cargo landed or shipped
without such permit will be liable to confiscation.
Art. XL.—No transhipment from one vessel to another can be made without
special permission, under pain of confiscation of the goods so transhipped.
Art. XLI.—When all dues and duties shall have been paid, the Superintendent
of Customs shall give a port-clearance and the Consul shall then return the ship’s j
papers, so that she may depart on her voyage.
Art. XLII.—With respect to articles subject, according to the tariff, to an ad
'Valorem duty, if the British merchant cannot agree with the Chinese officer in affixing
its value, then each party shall call two or three merchants to look at the goods, and
the highest price at which any of these merchants would be willing to purchase
them shall be assumed as the value of the goods.
Art. XLIII.-— Duties shall he charged upon the net weight of each article,
making a deduction for the tare, weight of congee, Ac. To fix the tare of any articles,
such as tea, if the British merchant cannot agree with the Custom-house officer, then
each party shall choose so many chests out of every hundred, which being first
weighed in gross, shall afterwards he tared, and the average tare upon these chests
shall be assumed as the tare upon the whole; and upon this principle shall the
tare be fixed upon other goods and packages. If there should be any other points in
dispute which cannot he settled, the British merchant may appeal to his Consul, who
will communicate the particulars of the case to the Superintendent of Customs, that
it may he equitably arranged. But the appeal must he made within twenty-four
hours or it will not he attended to. While such points are still unsettled, the
Superintendent of Customs shall postpone the insertion of the same in his hooks.
Art. XLIV.—Upon all damaged goods a fair reduction of duty shall he allowed
proportionate to their deterioration. If any disputes arise, they shall he settled in
the manner pointed out in the clause of this Treaty having reference to articles which
pay duty ad valorem. „
Art. XLV.—British merchants who may have imported merchandise into anyw
the open ports, and paid the duty thereon, if they desire to re-export the same, ska
be entitled to make application to the Superintendent of Customs, who, in orcer to
prevent fraud on the revenue, shall cause examination to be made by suitable officers,
to see that the duties paid on such goods, as entered in the Custom-house books,
•correspond with the representations made and that the goods remain with their
original marks unchanged. He shall then make a memorandum of the port-clearance

x)f the goods, and of the amount of duties paid, and deliver the same to the merchant,
and shall also certify the facts to the officers of Customs of the other ports. All which
being done, on the arrival in port of the vessel in which the goods are laden, every-
thing being found on examination there to correspond, she shall be permitted to break
hulk, and land the said goods, without being subject to the payment of any additional
duty thereon. But if, on such examination, the Superintendent of Customs shall
detect any fraud on the revenue in the case, then the goods shall be subject to
confiscation by the Chinese Government.
British merchants desiring to re-export duty-paid imports to a foreign country
shall be entitled, on complying with the same conditions as in the case of re-exporta-
tion to another port in China, to a drawback certificate, which shall be a valid tender
to the Customs in payment of import or export duties.
Foreign grain brought into any port of.China in a British ship, if no part thereof
has been landed, may be re-exported without hindrance.
Art. XLVI.—The Chinese authorities at each port shall adopt the means they
may judge most proper to prevent the revenue suffering from fraud or smuggling.
Art. XLVII.—British merchant-vessels are not entitled to resorb to other than the
ports of trade declared open by Treaty; they are not unlawfully to enter other ports in
China, or to carry on clandestine trade along the coast thereof. Any vessel violating this
provision shall, with her cargo, be subject to confiscation by the-Chinese Government.
Art. XLVIH.—If any British merchant-vessel be concerned in smuggling, the
goods, whatever their value or nature, shall be subject to confiscation by the Chinese
authorities, and the ship may be prohibited from trading further, and sent away as
soon as her account shall have been adjusted and paid.
Art. XLIX.—All penalties enforced, or confiscations made, under this Treaty
shall belong and be appropriated to the public service of the Government of China.
Art. L.—All official communications addressed by the Diplomatic and Consular
Agent of Her Majesty the Queen to the Chinese Authorities shall, henceforth, be writ-
ten in English. They will for the present be accompanied by a Chinese version, but it
is understood that, in the event of there being any difference of meaning between the
English and Chinese text, the English Government will hold the sense as expressed in
the English text to be the correct sense. This provision is to apply to the Treaty now
negotiated, the Chinese text of which has been carefully corrected by the English original.
Art. LI.—It is agreed that henceforward the characterful” (barbarian) shall not
be applied to the Government or subjects of Her Britannic Majesty in any Chinese official
document issued by the Chinese authorities, either in the capital or in the provinces.
Art. LII.—British ships of war coming for no hostile purpose, or being engaged
m the pursuit of pirates, shall be at liberty to visit all ports within the dominions
of the Emperor of China, and shall receive every facility for the purchase of pro-
visions, procuring water, and, if occasion require, for the making of repairs. The
commanders of such ships shall hold intercourse with the Chinese authorities on
terms of equality and courtesy.
Art. LIIL—In consideration of the injury sustained by native and foreign
commerce from the prevalence of piracy in the seas of China, the high contracting
parties agree to concert measures for its suppression.
Art. LIV.—The British Government and its subjects are hereby confirmed in all
privileges, immunities, and advantages conferred on them by previous Treaties: and
•it is hereby expressly stipulated that the British Government and its subjects will be
allowed free and equal participation in all privileges, immunities and advantages that
W have been, or may be hereafter, granted by His Majesty the Emperor of China
° the Government or subjects of any other nation.

Ratifications exchanged at London, 6th, May, 1886
Agreement negotiated between Sir Thomas Wade, k.c.b., Her Britannic
Majesty’s Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary at the Court of China,
and Li, Minister Plenipotentiary of His Majesty the Emperor of China, Senior Grand
Secretary, Governor-General of the Province of Chihli, of the First Class of the
Third Order of Nobility.
The negotiation between the Ministers above named has its origin in a despatch
received by Sir Thomas Wade, in the Spring of the preseut year, from the Earl of
Derby, Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, dated 1st January, 1876.
This contained instructions regarding the disposal of three questions : first, a satis-
factory settlement of the Yunnan affair; secondly, a faithful fulfilment of engagements
of last year respecting intercourse between the high officers of the two Governments ;
thirdly, the adoption of a uniform system in satisfaction of the understanding arrived
at in the month of September, 1875 (8th moon of the 1st year of the reign Kwang
Su), on the subject of rectification of conditions of trade. It is to this despatch that
Sir Thomas Wade has referred himself in discussions on these questions with the
Tsung-li Yamen, further reference to which is here omitted as superfluous. The
conditions now agreed to between Sir Thomas Wade and the Grand Secretary are as
Section I.—Settlement of the Yunnan Case
1. —A Memorial is to be presented to the Throne, whether by the Tsung-li
Yamen or by the Grand Secretary Li is immaterial, in the sense of the memorandum
prepared by Sir Thomas Wade. Before presentation the Chinese text of the Memorial
is to be shown to Sir Thomas Wade.
2. —The Memorial having been presented to the Throne, and the Imperial Decree
m reply received, the Tsung-li Yamcn will communicate copies of the Memorial and
Imperial decree of Sir Thomas Wade, together with copy of a letter from the
Tsung-li Yamcn to the Provincial Governments, instructing them to issue a proclama-
tion that shall embody at length the above Memorial and Decree. Sir Thomas Wade
thereon reply to the effect that for two years to come officers will be sent by the
British Minister to different places in the provinces to see that the proclamation is
posted. On application from the British Minister or the Consul of any port instructed
by him to make application, the high officers of the provinces will depute competent
officers to accompany those so sent to the places which they go to observe.
3. —In order to the framing of such regulations as will be needed for the conduct
of the frontier trade between Burmah and Yunnan, the Memorial submitting the
proposed settlement of the Yunnan affair will contain a request that an Imperial
Decree be issued directing the Governor-General and Governor, whenever the British
Government shall send officers to Yunnan, to select a competent officer of rank to
confer with them and to conclude a satisfactory arrangement.
. British Government will be free for five years, from the 1st January
being the 17th day of the 11th moon of the 2nd year of the reign of Kwang Su,
station officers at Ta-li Fu, or at some other suitable place in Yunnan, to observe
e conditions of trade ; to the end that they may have information upon which to
t-ase â„¢ regulations of trade when these have to be discussed. For the considera-
adjustment of any matter affecting British officers or subjects these officers
_1 be free to address themselves to the authorities of the province. The opening

of the trade may be proposed by the British Government as it may find best at any
time within the term of five years, or upon expiry of the term of five years.
Passports having been obtained last year for a Mission from India into Yunnan,
it is open to the Viceroy of India to send such Mission at any time he may see fit.
5. —The amount of indemnity to be paid on account of the families of the officers
and others killed in Yiinnan, on account of the expenses which the Yunnan case has
occasioned, and on account of claims of British merchants arising out of the action
of officers of the Chinese Government up to the commencement of the present year,
Sir Thomas Wade takes upon himself to fix at two hundred thousand taels, payable
on demand.
6. —When the case is closed an Imperial letter will be written expressing regret
for what has occurred in Yunnan. The Mission bearing the Imperial letter will
proceed to England immediately. Sir Thomas Wade is to be informed of the
constitution of this Mission for the information of this Government. The text of the
Imperial letter is also to be communicated to Sir Thomas Wade by the Tsung-li
Section II.— Ofticicd Intercourse
Under this heading are included the conditions of intercourse between high
officers in the capital and the provinces, and between Consular officers and Chinese
officials at tie ports; also the conduct of judicial proceedings in mixed cases.
1. —In thi Tsung-li Yamen’s Memorial of the 28th September, 1875, the Prince
of Kung an! the Ministers state ! that their object in presenting it had not been
simply the transaction of business in which Chinese and Foreigners might be con-
cerned; missions abroad and the question of diplomatic intercourse lay equally with-
in their prayer.
To the prevention of further misunderstanding upon the subject of intercourse
and correspondence, the present conditions of both having ctused complaint in the
capittl and in the provinces, it is agreed that the Tsung-li Yamen shall address a
circular to the Legations, inviting Foreign Representatives to consider with them a
code of etiquette, to the end that foreign officials in China, whether at the ports or
elsewhere, may be treated with the same regard as is shown them when serving
abroad jn other countries and as would be shown to Chinese agents so serving abroad.
The fact that China is about to establish Missions and Consulates abroad renders
an understanding on these points essential.
2. —The British Treaty of 1858, Article XVT., lays down that “Chinese subjects
who may be guilty of any criminal act towards British subjects shall be arrested and
punished by Chinese authorities according to the laws of China.
“British subjects who may commit any crime in China shall be tried and
punished by the Consul, or any other public functionary authorised thereto, accord-
ing to the laws of Great Britain.
“Justice shall be equitably and impartially administered on both sides.”
The words “functionary authorised thereto” are translated in the Chinese text
“British Government.”
Iu or ler to the fulfilment of its Treaty obligation, the British Government lias
established a Supreme Court at Shanghai with a special code of rules, which itis
now about to revise. The Chinese Government has established at Shanghai a Mixed
Court; but the officer presiding over it, either from lack of power or dread of un-
popularity, constantly fails to enforce his judgments.
It is now unlerstood that the Tsung-ii Yamen will write a circular to the Lega-
tion, inviting Foreign Representatives at once to consider with the Tsung-li Yamen
the measures needed for the more effective administration of justice at the ports
open to trade.
3. —It is agreed that, whenever a crime is committed affecting the person or
property of a British subject, whether in the interior or at the open ports, the British
Minister shall be free to send officers to the spot to he present at the investigation-

To tlie prevention of misunderstanding on this point, Sir Thomas Wade will
write a Note to the above effect, to which the Tsung-li Yamcn will reply, affirming
that this is the course of proceeding to be adhered to for the time to come.
It is further understood that so long as the laws of the two countries differ from
each other, there can be but one principle to guide judicial proceedings in mixed case&
in China, namely, that the case is tried by the official of the defendant’s nationality ;
the official of the plaintiff’s nationality merely attending to watch the proceedings in
the interest of justice. If the officer so attending be dissatisfied with the proceedings,
it will be in his power to protest against them in detail.' The law administered will
be the law of the nationality of the officer trying the case. This is the meaning of
the words hui t’ung, indicating combined action in judicial proceedings, in Article
XVI. of the Treaty of Tientsin; and this is the course to be respectively followed by’
the officers of either nationality.
Section III.—Trade.
1.—With reference to the area within which, according to the Treaties in force,
lekin ought not to be collected on foreign goods at the open ports, Sir Thomas Wade
agrees to move his Government to allow the ground rented by foreigners (the so-called
Concessions) at the different ports, to be regarded as the area of exemption from
lekin; and the Government of China will thereupon allow Ich’ang’, in the province
ofHu-pi; Wu-hu, in An-hui; Wen-chow, in Che-kiang; and Pei-hai (Pak-hoi),
in Kwang-tung to be added to the number of ports open to trade and to become
Consular stations. The British Government will, further, be free to send officers to
reside at Chung-k’ing to watch the conditions of British trade in Szecliuen ;
British merchants will not be allowed to reside at Chung-k’ing, or to open establish-
ments or warehouses there, so long as no steamers have access to the port. When
steamers have succeeded in ascending the river so far, further arrangements can be
taken into consideration.
It is further proposed as a measure of compromise that at certain points on the
shore of the Great River, namely, Tat’ung and Ngan-Ching in the province of An-
hui; Ho-Kou, in Kiang-si; Wu-such, Lu-chi kou, and Sha-shih in Hu-Kwan g,
these being all places of trade in the interior, at which, as they are not open ports,
foreign merchants are not legally authorised to land or ship goods, steamers shall be
allowed to touch for the purpose of landing or shipping passengers or goods; but in
all instances by means of native boats only, and subject to the regulations in force
affecting native trade.
Produce accompanied by a half-duty certificate may be shipped at such points
hy the steamers, but may not be landed by them for sale. And at all such points,
except in the case of imports accompanied by a transit duty certificate or exports
similarly certificated, which will be severally passed free of lekin on exhibition of such
certificates, lekin will be duly collected on all goods whatever by the native authorities.
Foreign merchants will not be authorised to reside or open houses of business or
warehouses at tlie places enumerated as ports of call.
2. —At all ports open to trade, whether by earlier or later agreement at which no
settlement area has been previously defined, it will be the duty of the British Consul,
acting in concert with his colleagues, the Consuls of other Powers, to come to an
understanding with the local authorities regarding the definition of the foreign
settlement area.
3. —On Opium, Sir Thomas Wade will move his Government to sanction an
airangement different from that affecting other imports. British merchants, when
opium is brought into port, will be obliged to have it taken cognisance of by the
ustoms, and deposited in bond, either in a warehouse or a receiving hulk, until such
^nie as there is a sale for it. The importer will then pay the tariff duty upon it,
n the purchasers the lekin, in order to the prevention of evasion of the Treaty. The
cunt of lekin to be collected will be decided by the different Provincial Govern-
en 8 according to the circumstances of each.

4. —The Chinese Government agree that Transit Duty Certificates shall be
framed under one rule at all ports, no difference being made in the conditions set forth
therein; and that, so far as imports are concerned, the nationality of the person
possessing and carrying these is immaterial. Native produce carried from an inland
centre to a port of shipment, if loud fide intended for shipment to a foreign port,
may be, by treaty, certified by the British subject interested, and exempted bv
payment of the half duty from all charges demanded upon it eu route. If produce be
not the property of a British subject, or is being carried to a port not for exportation,
it is not entitled to the exemption that would be secured it by the exhibition of a
transit duty certificate. The British Minister is prepared to agree with the Tsung-li
Yamen upon rules that will secure the Chinese Government against abuse of the
privilege as affecting produce.
The words nei-ti (inland) in the clause of Article VII. of the Rules appended to
the Tariff, regarding carriage of imports inland, and of native produce purchased
inland, apply as much to places on the sea coasts and river shores as to places in the
interior not open to foreign trade; the Chinese Government having the right to make
arrangements for the prevention of abuses thereat.
5. —Article XLV. of the Treaty of 1858 prescribed no limit to the term within
which a drawback may be claimed upon duty-paid imports. The British Minister
agrees to a term of three years, after expiry of which no drawback shall be claimed.
6. —The foregoing stipulation, that certain ports are to be opened to foreign trade,
and that landing and shipping of goods at six places on the Great River is to be
sanctioned, shall be given effect to within six months after receipt of the Imperial
Decree approving the memorial of the Grand Secretary Li. The date for giving effect
to the stipulations affecting exemption of imports from lekin taxation within the for-
eign settlements and the collection of lekin upon opium by the Customs Inspectorate
at the same time as the Tariff Duty upon it, will be fixed as soon as the British Gov-
ernment has arrived at an understanding on the subject with other foreign Governments.
7. —The Governor of Hongkong having long complained of the interference of
the Canton Customs Revenue Cruisers with the junk trade of that Colony, the Chinese
Government agrees to the appointment of a Commission, to consist of a British Consul,
an officer of the Hongkong Government, and a Chinese official of equal rank, in order
to the establishment of some system that shall enable the Chinese Government to
protect its revenue without prejudice to the interests of the Colony.
Separate Article
Her Majesty’s Government having it in contemplation to send a Mission of
Exploration next year by way of Peking through Kan-su and Koko-Nor, or by way of
Ssu-chuen, to Thibet, and thence to India, the Tsung-li Yamen, having due regard
to the circumstances, will, when the time arrives, issue the necessary passports, and
will address letters to the high provincial authorities and to the Resident in Thibet.
If the Mission should not be sent by these routes, but should be proceeding across
the Indian frontier to Thibet, the Tsung-li Yamen, on receipt of a communication to
the above effect from the British Minister, will write, to the Chinese Resident in
Thibet, and the Resident, with due regard to the circumstances, will send officers to
take due care of the Mission; and passports for the Mission will be issued by the
Tsung-li Yamen, that its passage be not obstructed.

Additional Articles to the Agreement between Great Britain and China
Signed at Chefoo on the Y?Ah September, 1876
Signed at London, 18th July, 1885
The Governments of Great Britain and of China, considering that the arrange-
ments proposed in Clauses 1 and 2 of Section III. of the Agreement between Great
Britain and China, signed at Chefoo on the 13th September, 1876 (hereinafter
referred to as the “ Chefoo Agreement ”), in relation to the area within which lekin
ought not to be collected on foreign goods at the open ports, and to the definition of
the Foreign Settlement area, require further consideration; also that the terms of
Clause 3 of the same section are not sufficiently explicit to serve as an efficient regula-
tion for the traffic in opium, and recognizing the desirability of placing restrictions
on the consumption of opium, have agreed to the present Additional Article.
1. —As regards the arrangements above referred to and proposed in Clauses 1
.and 2 of Section III. of the Chefoo Agreement, it is agreed that they shall be reserved-
for further consideration between the two Governments.
2. —In lieu of the arrangement respecting opium proposed in Clause 3 of Section
II. of the Chefoo Agreement, it is agreed that foreign opium, when imported into
China, shall be taken cognizance of by the Imperial Maritime Customs, and shall be
deposited in bond, either in warehouses or receiving-hulks which have been approved
of by the Customs, and that it shall not be removed thence until there shall have
been paid to the Customs the Tariff duty of 30 taels per chest of 100 catties,"and also
a sum not exceeding 80 taels per like chest as lekin.
3. —It is agreed that the aforesaid import and lekin duties having been paid, the
owner shall be allowed to have the opium repacked in bond under the supervision of
the Customs, and put into packages of such assorted sizes as he may select from such
sizes as shall have been agreed upon by the Customs authorities and British Consul
•at the port of entry.
The Customs shall then, if required, issue gratuitously to the owner a transit cer-
tificate for each such package, or one for any number of packages, at option of the owner.
Such certificates shall free the opium to which it applies from the imposition of
any further tax or duty whilst in transport in the interior, provided that the package
has not been opened, and that the Customs seals, marks, and numbers on the packages
have not been effaced or tampered with.
Such certificate shall have validity only in the hands of Chinese subjects, and
shall not entitle foreigners to convey or accompany any opium in which they may
he interested into the interior.
4. —It is agreed that the Regulations under .which the said certificates are to be
issued shall be the same for all the ports, and that the form shall be as follows:—
Ci Opium Transit Certificate,
11 This is to certify that Tariff and lekin duties at the rate of-taels per chest
of 100 catties have been paid on the opium marked and numbered as under; and
that, in conformity with the Additional Article signed at London the 18th July, 1885,
and appended to the Agreement between Great Britain and China signed at Chefoo
the 13th September, 1876, and approved by the Imperial Decree printed on the back
hereof, the production of this certificate will exempt the opium to which it refers,
wherever it may be found, from the imposition of any further tax or duty whatever,
provided that the packages are unbroken, and the Customs seals, marks, and numbers
iavo not been effaced or tampered with.
“Mark, No.

‘ Fate . “ Signature of Commissioner of Customs,"
5-~~The Chinese Government undertakes that when the packages shall have been
psned at the place of consumption, the opium shall not be subjected to any tax or

contribution, direct or indirect, other than or in excess of such tax or contribution
as is or may hereafter be levied on native opium.
In the event of such tax or contribution being calculated ad valorem, the same
rate, value for value, shall be assessed on foreign and native opium, and in ascertaining
for this purpose the value of foreign opium the amount paid on it for lekin at the
port of entry shall be deducted from its market value.
6. —It is agreed that the present Additional Article shall be considered as forming
part of the Chefoo Agreement, and that it shall have the same force and validity as
if it were therein inserted word for word. It shall come into operation six months
after its signature, provided the ratifications have then been exchanged, or if they
have not, then on the date at which such exchange takes place.
7. —The arrangement respecting opium contained in the present Additional Article
shall remain binding for four years, after the expiration of which period either
Government may at any time give twelve months’ notice of its desire to determine it,
and, such notice being given, it shall terminate accordingly. It is, however, agreed
that the Government of Great Britain shall have the right to terminate the same at
any time should the transit certificate be found not to confer on the opium complete
exemption from all taxation whatsoever whilst being carried from the port of entry
to the place of consumption in the interior. In the event of the termination of the
present Additional Article the arrangement with regard to opium now in force and
the regulations attached to the Treaty of Tientsin shall revive.
8. —The High Contracting Parties may, by common consent, adopt any modifica-
tions of the provisions of the present Additional Article which experience may show
to be desirable.
9. —It is understood that the Commission provided for in Clause 7 of Section III.
of the Chefoo Agreement to inquire into the question of prevention of smuggling
into China from Hongkong shall be appointed as soon as possible.
10. —The Chefoo Agreement, together with, and as modified by, the present
Additional Article, shall be ratified, and the ratifications shall be exchanged at London
as soon as possible.
In witness whereof the Undersigned, duly authorized thereto by their respective-
Governments, have signed the present Additional Article, and have affixed thereto
their seals.

Ratifications Exchanged at Peking, P&tli January, 1891
The Governments of Great Britain and China, being desirous of settling in an.
amicable spirit the divergence of opinion which has arisen with respect to the First
Clause of the Third Section of the Agreement concluded at Chefoo in 1876, which
stipulates that “ The British Government will be free to send officers to reside at
Chungking to watch the conditions of British trade in Szechuan, that British mer-
chants will not be allowed to reside at Chungking, or to open establishments or
warehouses there, so long as no steamers-have access to the port, and that when
steamers have succeeded in ascending the river so far, further arrangements can be
taken into consideration,” have agreed upon the following Additional Article :—
I. —Chungking shall forthwith be declared open to trade on the same footing as
any other Treaty port. British subjects shall be at liberty either to charter Chinese
vessels or to provide vessels of the Chinese type for the traffic between Ichang and
II. —Merchandise conveyed between Ichang and Chungking by the above class
of vessels shall be placed on the same footing as merchandise carried by steamers
between Shanghai and Ichang, and shall be dealt- with in accordance with Treaty
Tariff Rules, and the Yangtsze Regulations.
IIC.—All regulations as to the papers and flags to be carried by vessels of the
above description, as to the repackage of goods for the voyage beyond Ichang and
as to the general procedure to be observed by those engaged in the traffic between
Ichang and Chungking with a view to insuring convenience and security, shall be
drawn up by the Superintendent of Customs at Ichang, the Taotai of the Ch’uan
Tung Circuit, who is now stationed at Chungking, and the Commissioners of Customs
in consultation with the British Consul, and shall be liable to any modifications that
may hereafter prove to be desirable and may be agreed upon by common consent.
IV. —Chartered junks shall pay port dues at Ichang and Chungking in accord-
ance with the Yangtsze Regulations; vessels of Chinese type, if and when entitled
to carry the British flag, shall pay tonnage dues in accordance with Treaty
Regulations. It is obligatory on both chartered junks and also vessels of Chinese
type, even when the latter may be entitled to carry the British flag, to
take out at the Maritime Custom-house special papers and a special flag
when intended to be employed by British subjects in the transport of goods
between Ichang and Chungking, and without such papers and flag no vessels
of either class shall be allowed the privileges and immunities granted under this
Additional Article. Provided with special papers and flag, vessels of both classes
shall be allowed to ply between the two ports, and they and their cargoes shall he
dealt with in accordance with Treaty Rules and the Yangtsze Regulations. All other
vessels shall be dealt with by the Native Customs. The special papers and flag
issued by the Maritime Customs must alone be used by the particular vessel for
which they were originally issued, and are not transferable from one vessel to
another. The use of the British flag by vessels the property of Chinese is strictly
prohibited. Infringement of these Regulations will, in the first instance, render
the offender liable to the penalties in force at the ports hitherto opened under Treaty,
and should the offence be subsequently repeated, the vessel’s special papers and flag
will be withdrawn, and the vessel herself refused permission thenceforward to trade
between Ichang and Chungking.
V. —When once Chinese steamers carrying cargo run to Chungking, British
steamers shall in like manner have access to the said port.

VI.—It is agreed that the present Additional Article shall he considered as
forming part of the Chefoo Agreement, and as having the same force and validity as
if it were inserted therein word for word. It shall he ratified, and the ratifications
exchanged at Peking, and it shall come into operation six months after its signature,
provided the ratifications have then been exchanged, or if they have not, then on
the date at which such exchange takes place.

agreed between the Governments of Great Britain and China that the following
additions and alterations shall be made in the last-named Convention, hereinafter

might appoint a Consul in Burmah to reside at Rangoon, and that Great Britain
might appoint a Consul to reside at Manwyne, and that the Consuls of the two
Governments should each within the territories of the other enjoy the same
privileges and immunities as the Consuls of the most favoured nation, and further
that in proportion as the commerce between Burmah and China increased, additional

-Consul at Mo mein or Shunning Pu as the Government of Great Britain may prefer,
instead of at Manwyne as stipulated in the Original Convention, and also to station
a Consul at Szumao.
British subjects and persons under British protection may establish themselves
and trade at these places under the same conditions as at the Treaty Ports in

In order to provide Great Britain with, a suitable naval harbour in North China,
.and for the better protection of British commerce in the neighbouring seas, the

His Majesty the King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of
the British Dominions beyond the Seas, Emperor of India, and His Majesty the Em-
peror of China, having resolved to enter into negotiations with a view to carrying out
the provisions contained in Article XI. of the Final Protocol signed at Peking on the
7th of September, 1901, under which the Chinese Government agreed to negotiate the
amendments deemed useful by the Foreign Governments to the Treaties of Commerce
and Navigation and other subjects concerning commercial relations with the object of
facilitating them, have for that purpose named as their Plenipotentiaries, that is to
His Majesty the King of Great Britain and Ireland, His Majesty’s Special Com-
missioner, Sir James Lyle Mackay, Knight Commander of the Most Eminent Order of
the Indian Empire, a member of the Council of the Secretary of State for India, etc.
And His Majesty the Emperor of China, the Imperial Commissioners Lu Hai-huan,
President of the Board of Public Works, etc., and Sheng Hsuan-huai, Junior Guardian
of the Heir Apparent, Senior Vice-President of the Board of Public Works, etc.
Who having communicated to each other their respective full powers, and
found them to be in good and due form, have agreed upon and concluded the
following Articles:—
Art. I.—Delay having occurred in the past in the issue of Drawback Certificates-
owing to the fact that those documents have to be dealt with by the Superintendent
of Customs at a distance from the Customs Office, it is now agreed that Drawback
Certificates shall hereafter in all cases be issued by the Imperial Maritime Customs
within three weeks of the presentation to the Customs of the papers entitling the
applicant to receive such Drawback Certificates.
These Certificates shall be valid tender to the Customs Authorities in payment
of any duty upon goods imported or exported (transit dues excepted), or shall, in the
case of Drawbacks on foreign goods re-exported abroad within three years from the
date of importation, be payable in cash without deduction by the Customs Bank at
the place where the import duty was paid.
But if, in connection with any application for a Drawback Certificate, the
Customs Authorities discover an attempt to defraud the revenue, the applicant shall
he liable to a fine not exceeding five times the amount of the duty whereof he
attempted to defraud the Customs, or to a confiscation of the goods.
Art. II.—China agrees to take the necessary steps to provide for a uniform
national coinage which shall be legal tender in payment of all duties, taxes and other
obligations throughout the Empire by British as well as Chinese subjects.
. Art. IIL—China agrees that the duties andlelcin combined levied on goods carried5
by junks from Hongkong to the Treaty Ports in the Canton Province and vice versa
shall together not be less than the duties charged by the Imperial Maritime Customs-
on similar goods carried by steamer.
Art. IV.—Whereas questions have arisen in the past concerning the right of
hmese subjects to invest money in non-Chinese enterprises and companies, and
W areas it is a matter of common knowledge that large sums of Chinese capital are'
60 luvested, China hereby agrees to recognise the legality of all such* investments past,-
PW and future.

It being, moreover, of the utmost importance that all shareholders in a Joint Stock
Company should stand on a footing of perfect equality as far as mutual obligations
are concerned, China further agrees that Chinese subjects who have or may become
shareholders in any British Joint Stock Company shall be held to have accepted, by
-the very act of becoming shareholders, the Charter of Incorporation or Memorandum
and Articles of Association of such Company and regulations framed thereunder as
interpreted by British Courts, and that Chinese Courts shall enforce compliance there-
with by such Chinese shareholders, if a suit to that effect be entered, provided always
that their liability shall not be other or greater than that of British shareholders in
the same Company.
Similarly the British Government agree that British subjects investing in
Chinese Companies shall be under the same obligations as the Chinese shareholders
in such companies.
The foregoing shall not apply to cases which have already been before the Courts
. and been dismissed.
Art. V.—The Chinese Government undertakes to remove within the next two
years the artificial obstructions to navigation in the Canton River. The Chinese
Government also agree to improve the accommodation for shipping in the harbour of
Canton and to take the necessary steps to maintain that improvement, such work to
be carried out by the Imperial Maritime Customs and the cost thereof to be defrayed
by a tax on goods landed and shipped by British and Chinese alike according to a
-scale to be arranged between the merchants and the Customs Authorities.
The Chinese Government are aware of the desirability of improving the naviga-
bility by steamer of the waterway between Ichang and Chungking, but are also fully
aware that such improvement might involve heavy expense and would affect the
interests of the population of the provinces of Szechuen, Hunan, and Hupeh. It is,
therefore, mutually agreed that until improvements can be carried out steamship
owners shall be allowed, subject to approval by the Imperial Maritime Customs, to
.erect, at their own expense, appliances for hauling through the rapids. Such
appliances shall be at the disposal of all vessels, both steamers and j unks, subject to
regulations to be drawn up by the Imperial Maritime Customs. These appliauces
shall not obstruct the waterway or interfere with the free passage of junks. Signal
stations and channel marks where and when necessary shall be erected by the
Imperial Maritime Customs. Should any practical scheme be presented for improv-
ing the waterway and assisting navigation without injury to the local population or
cost to the Chinese Government, it shall be considered by the latter in a friendly
. spirit.
Art. VI.—The Chinese Government agree to make arrangements to give increased
facilities at the open ports for bonding and for repacking merchandise in bond, and,
. on official representation being made by the British Authorities, to grant the privi-
leges of a bonded warehouse to any warehouse which, to the satisfaction of the
Customs Authorities, affords the necessary security to the revenue.
Such warehouses will be subject to regulations, including a scale of fees according
to commodities, distance from Custom-house and hours of working, to be drawn up
by the Customs Authorit ies who will meet the convenience of merchants so far as is
compatible with the protection of the revenue.
Art. VII.—Inasmuch as the British Government affords protection to Chinese
trade marks against infringement, imitation, or colourable imitation by British
subjects, the Chinese Government undertake to afford protection to British trade
marks against infringement, imitation, or colourable imitation by Chinese subjects.
The Chinese Government further undertake that the Superintendents of Northern
aud of Southern trade shall establish offices within their respective jurisdictions under
control of the Imperial Maritime Customs where foreign trade marks may he
registered on payment of a reasonable fee.
Art. VIII.—Preamble. The Chinese Government, recognising that the system
of levying lekim and other dues on goods at the place of production, in transit, and at

destination, impedes the free circulation of commodities and injures the interests of
trade, hereby undertake to discard completely those means of raising revenue with
the limitation mentioned in Section 8.
The British Government, in return, consent to allow a surtax, in excess of the'
Tariff rates for the time being in force, to be imposed on foreign goods imported by
British subjects, and a surtax in addition to the export duty on Chinese produce
destined for export abroad or coastwise.
It is clearly understood that after lekin barriers and other stations for taxing
goods in transit have been removed, no attempt shall be made to revive them in any
form or under any pretext whatsoever; that in no case shall the surtax on foreign•
imports exceed the equivalent of one and a half times the import duty leviable in
terms of the Final Protocol signed by China and the Powers on the 7th day of Sep-
tember, 1901; that payment of the import duty and surtax shall secure for foreign -
imports, whether in the hands of Chinese or non-Chinese subjects, in original packages
or otherwise, complete immunity from all other taxation, examination or delay ; that'
the total amount of taxation leviable on native produce for export abroad shall, under
no circumstances, exceed 7j per cent, ad valorem.
Keeping these fundamental principles steadily in view, the high contracting
parties have agreed upon the following methods of procedure :—
Section 1.— The Chinese Government undertake that all barriers of whatsoever
kind, collecting lekin or such like dues or duties, shall be permanently abolished on all
roads, railways, and waterways iu the Eighteen Provinces of China and the Three
Eastern Provinces. This provision does not apply to the Native Custom-houses at.
present in existence on the seaboard or waterways, at open ports, on land routes, and -
on land frontiers of China.
Section 2.—The British Government agree that foreign goods on importation, in
addition to the effective 5 per cent, import duty as provided for in the Protocol of 19017
shall pay a special surtax equivalent to one and a half times the said duty to com-
pensate for the abolition of Zefcm, of transit dues in lieu of lekin, and of all other-
taxation on foreign goods, and in consideration of the other reforms provided for in-
this Article; but this provision shall not impair the right of China to tax salt, native
opium and native produce as provided for in Sections 3, 5, 6 and 8.
The same amount of surtax shall be levied on goods imported into the Eighteen/
Provinces of China and the Three Eastern Provinces across the land frontiers as on
goods entering China by sea.
Section 3.—All Native Custom-houses now existing, whether at the Open Portsy
on the seaboard, on rivers, inland waterways, land ’routes or land frontiers, as
enumerated in the Hu Pu and Kung Pu Tse Li (.Regulations of the Boards of Revenue-
and Works) and Ta Gh-incj Hui Tien (Dynastic Institutes), may remain; a list of the-
same, with their location, shall be furnished to the British Government, for purposes
of record.
Wherever there are Imperial Maritime Custom-houses, or wherever such may-
be hereafter placed, Native Custom-houses may be also established; as well as at any •
points either on the seaboard or land frontiers.
, The location of Native Custom-houses in the Interior may be changed as the-
circumstances of trade seem to require, but any change must be communicated to the •
-British Government, so that the list may be corrected; the originally stated number-
them shall not, however, be exceeded.
â–  Goods carried by junks or sailing-vessels trading to or from open ports shall not
pay lower duties than the combined duties and surtax on similar cargo carried by
Native produce, when transported from one place to another in the interior, shall/
on arrival at the first Native Custom-house, after leaving the place of production, pay-
11 f° the export surtax mentioned in Section 7.
, hen this duty has been paid, a certificate shall be given which shall describe the
♦, Ul® °t the goods, weight, number of packages, etc., amount of duty paid and
ended destination. This certificate, which shall be valid for a fixed period of not

less than one year from date of payment of duty, shall free the goods from all taxation,
examination, delay, or stoppage at any other Native Custom-houses passed en route.
If the goods are taken to a place not in the foreign settlements or concessions of an
open port, for local use, they become there liable to the Consumption Tax described
in Section 8.
If the goods are shipped from an open port, the certificate is to be accepted by
the Custom-house concerned, in lieu of the export surtax mentioned in Section 7.
Junks, boats, or carts shall not be subjected to any taxation beyond a small and
reasonable charge, paid periodically at a fixed annual rate. This does not exclude the
right to levy, as at present, tonnage (Chuan Chao) and port dues (Chuan Liao) on
Section 4.—Foreign opium duty and present lekin—which latter will now become
a surtax in lieu of lekin—shall remain as provided for by existing Treaties.
Section 5.—The British Government have no intention whatever of interfering
with China’s right to tax native opium, but it is essential to declare that, in her
arrangements for levying such taxation, China will not subject other goods to taxation,
delay, or stoppage.
China is free to retain at important points on the borders of each province—either
on land or water—offices for collecting duty on native opium, where duties or contribu-
tions leviable shall be paid in one lump sum ; which payment shall cover taxation of all
kinds within that province. Each cake of opium will have a stamp affixed as evidence
of duty payment. Excise officers and police may be employed in connection with these
offices; but no barriers or other obstructions are to be erected, and the excise officers
-or police of these offices shall not stop or molest any other kinds of goods, or collect
taxes thereon.
A list of these offices shall be drawn up and communicated to the British Govern-
ment for record.
Section 6.—Lekin on salt is hereby abolished and the amount of said lekin and of
• other taxes and contributions shall be added to the salt duty, which shall be collected t
. at place of production or at first station after entering the province where it is to be
The Chinese Government shall be at liberty to establish salt reporting offices at
which boats conveying salt which is being moved under salt passes or certificates may
be required to stop for purposes of examination and to have their certificates vised,
but at such offices no lekin or transit taxation shall be levied and no barriers or
obstructions of any kind shall be erected.
Section 7.—The Chinese Government may recast the Export Tariff with specific
duties as far as practicable on a scale not exceeding five per cent, ad valorem; but
existing export duties shall not be raised until at least six months’ notice has been
In cases where existing export duties are above five per cent, they shall be
reduced to not more than that rate.
An additional special surtax of one half the export duty payable for the time
being, in lieu of internal taxation and lekin, may be levied at time of export on goods
.exported either to foreign countries or coastwise.
In the case of silk, whether hand or filature reeled, the total export duty shall not
-exceed a specific rate equivalent to not more than five per cent, ad valorem. Half of
this specific duty may be levied at the first Native Custom-house in the interior which
the silk may pass and in such case a certificate shall be given as provided for in Section
3, and will be accepted by the Custom-house concerned at place of export in lieu of
half the export duty. Cocoons passing Native Custom-houses shall be liable to no
taxation whatever. Silk not exported but consumed in China is liable to the Con-
sumption Tax mentioned in Section 8.
Section 8.—The abolition of the lekin system in China and the abandonment of all
other kinds of internal taxation on foreign imports and on exports will diminish the
^revenue materially. The surtax on foreign imports and exports and on coastwise
.exports is intended to compensate in a measure for this loss of revenue, but there

remains the loss of Ickin revenue on internal trade to be met, and it is therefore agreed
that the Chinese Government are at liberty to impose a Consumption Tax on articles
. of Chinese origin not intended for export.
This tax shall be levied only at places of consumption and not on goods while in
transit, and the Chinese Government solemnly undertake that the arrangements which
they may make for its collection shall in no way interfere with foreign goods or with
native goods for export. The fact of goods being of foreign origin shall of itself free
them from all taxation, delay, or stoppage, after having passed the Custom-house.
Foreign goods which bear a similarity to native goods shall be furnished by the
Custom-house, if required by the owner, with a protective certificate for each package,
on payment of import duty and surtax, to prevent the risk of any dispute in the
Native goods brought by junks to open ports, if intended for local consumption—
irrespective of the nationality of the owner of the goods—shall be reported at the
Native Custom-house only, where the consumption tax may be levied.
China is at liberty to fix the amount of this (consumption) tax, which may vary
according to the nature of the merchandise concerned, that is to say, according as the
articles are necessaries of life or luxuries; but it shall be levied at a uniform rate on
.goods of the same description, no matter whether carried by junk, sailing-vessel, or
steamer. As mentioned in Section 3, the Consumption Tax is not to be levied within
foreign settlements or concessions.
Section 9.—An excise equivalent to double the import duty as laid down in the
Protocol of 1901 is to be charged on all machine-made yarn and cloth manufactured in
'China, whether by foreigners at the open ports or by Chinese anywhere in China.
A rebate of the import duty and two-thirds of the import surtax is to be given
on raw cotton imported from foreign countries, and of all duties, including Consump-
tion Tax, paid on Chinese raw cotton used in mills in China.
Chinese machine-made yarn or cloth having paid excise is to be free of Export
Duty, Export Surtax, Coast Trade Duty, and Consumption Tax. This Excise is to ba
•collected through the Imperial Maritime Customs.
The same principle and procedure are to be applied to all other products of foreign
type turned out by machinery, whether by foreigners at the open ports or by
Chinese anywhere in China.
This stipulation is not to apply to the out-turn of the Hanyang and Ta Yeh Iron
Works in Hupeh and other similar existing Government Works at present exempt from
• taxation; or to that of Arsenals, Government Dockyards, or establishments of that
nature for Government purposes which may hereafter be erected.
Section 10.—A member or members of the Imperial Maritime Customs Foreign
Staff shall be selected by each of the Governors-General and Governors, and appointed,
in consultation with the Inspector-General of Imperial Maritime Customs, to each pro-
vince for duty in connection with Native Customs affairs, Consumption Tax, Salt and.
Native Opium Taxes. These odicers shall exercise an efficient supervision of the work-
ing of these departments, and in the event of their reporting any case of abuse, illegal
exaction, obstruction to the movement of goods, or other cause of complaint, the
Governor-General or Governor concerned will take immediate steps to put an end to
1 ?ec^071 11*—Cases where illegal action as described in this Article is complained of
siallbe promptly investigated by an officer of the Chinese Government of sufficiently
ighrank, in conjunction with a British officer and an officer of the Imperial Maritime
ustoms, each of sufficient standing; and in the event of its being found bv a majority
o the investigating officers that the complaint is well founded and loss has been.
Hcurred, due compensation is to be at once paid from the Surtax funds, through the
•nperial Maritime Customs at the nearest open port. The High Provincial Officials
‘lle .°/)e held responsible that the officer guilty of the illegal action shall be severely
1 Hished and removed from his post.
a * ^le complaint turns out to be without foundation, complainant shall be held
Feasible for the expenses of the investigation.

His Britannic Majesty’s Minister will have the right to demand investigation
where from the evidence before him he is satisfied that illegal exactions or obstructions
have occurred.
Section 12.—The Chinese Government agree to opeu to foreign trade, on the same
footing as the places opened to foreign trade by the Treaties of Nanking and Tientsin,,
the following places, namely:—
Changsha in Hunan ;
Wanhsien in Szechuen;
Nganking in Anhui;
Waichow (Hui-chow) in Kwangtung; and
Kongmoon (Chiang-men) in Kwangtung.
Foreigners residing in these open ports are to observe the Municipal and Police-
^Regulations on the same footing as Chinese residents, and they are n<»t to be entitled
to establish Municipalities and Police of their own within the limits of these Treaty
Ports except with the consent of the Chinese authorities.
If this Article does not come into operation the right to demand under it the
opening of these ports, with the exception of Kongmoon, which is provided for ia
Article 10, shall lapse.
Section 13.—Subject to the provisions of Section 14, the arrangements provided
for in this Article are to come into force on 1st January, 1904.
By that date all lekin barriers shall be removed and officials employed in the
collection of taxes and dues prohibited by this Article shall be removed from tlieir
Section 14.—The condition on which the Chinese Government enter into the
present engagement is that all Powers entitled to mo4 favoured nation treatment in
China enter into the same engagements ns Great Britain with regard to the payment
of surtaxes and other obligations imposed by this Article on His Britannic Majesty’s-
Government and subjects.
The conditions on which His Britannic Majesty’s Government enter into the
present engagement are: —
(1.) That all Powers who are now or who may hereafter become entitled to most
favoured nation treatment in China enter into .the same engagements;
(2.) And that their assent is neither directly nor indirectly made dependent on the
granting by China of any political concession, or of any exclusive commercial concession.
Section 15.—Should the Powers entitled to most favoured nation treatment by
China have failed to agree to enter into the engagements undertaken by Great Britain
under this Article by the 1st January, 1904, then the provisions of the Article shall
only come into force when ail the Powers have signified their acceptance of these
Section 16.—When the abolition of lekin and other forms of internal taxation on
goods as provided for in this Article has been decided upon and sanctioned, an Imperial
Edict shall be published in due form on yellow paper and circulated, setting forth the
abolition of all lekin taxation, lekin barriers and all descriptions of internal taxation on
goods, except as provided for in this Article.
The Edict shall state that the Provincial High Officials are responsible that any
official disregarding the letter or spirit of its injunction shall be severely punished and
removed from his post.
Art. IX.—The Chinese Government, recognising that it is advantageous for the
country to develop its mineral resources, and that it is desirable to attract Foreign as
well as Chinese capital to embark in mining enterprises, agree within one year from the
signing of this Treaty to initiate and conclude the revision of the existing MininS
Regulations. China will, with all expedition and earnestness, go into the who e
question of Mining Rules and, selecting from the rules of Great Britain, India, an-
other countries, regulations which seem applicable to the condition of China, shewi
recast her present Mining Rules in such a way as while promoting the interests 0

Chinese subjects and not injuring in any way the sovereign rights of China, shall offer
no impediment to the attraction of foreign capital, or place foreign capitalists, at a
areater disadvantage than they would be under generally accepted foreign regulations.
° Any mining concession granted after the publication of these new Rules shall be
subject to their provisions.
Art. X.—Whereas in the year 1898 the Inland Waters of China were opened to all
such steam vessels, native or foreign, as might be especially registered for that trade
at the Treaty Ports, and whereas the Regulations dated 28th July, 1898, and Supple-
mentary Rules dated September, 1898, have been found in some respects inconvenient
iu working, it is now mutually agreed to amend them and to annex such new Rules
to this Treaty. These Rules shall remain in force until altered by mutual consent.
It is further agreed that Kongmoon shall be opened as a Treaty Port, and that, in
addition to the places named in the special Article of the Burmah Convention of 4th
February, 1897, British steamers shall be allowed to land or ship cargo and passengers,
under the same regulations as apply to the “ Ports of Call ” on the Yangtze River, at
the following “ Polls of Call PakTau Hau (Pai-t‘u k‘ou), Lo Ting Hau (Lo-ting k'ou),
and Do Sing (Tou-ch‘eng); and to land or discharge passengers at the following ten
passenger landing stages on the West River:—Yung Ki (Jung-chi), Mali Ning (Ma-
iling), Kau Kong (Chiu-cliiang), Kulow (Ku-lao), Wing On (Yung-an), How Lit
(Houli), Luk Pu (Lu-pu), Yuet Sing (Yueh-clTeng), Luk To (Lu-tu) and Fung Chuen.
Art. XI.—His Britannic Majesty’s Government agree to the prohibition of the
general importation of morphia into China, on condition, however, that the Chinese
Government will allow of its importation, on payment of the Tariff import duty and
under special permit, by duly qualified British medical practitioners and for the
use of hospitals, or by British chemists and druggists who shall only be permitted
to sell it in small quantities and on receipt of a requisition signed by a duly qualified
foreign medical practitioner.
The special permits above referred to will be granted to an intending importer
on his signing a bond before a British Consul guaranteeing the fulfilment of these
conditions. Should an importer be found guilty before a British Consul of a breach
of his bond, he will not be entitled to take out another permit. Any British subject
importing morphia without a permit shall be liable to have such morphia con-
This Article will come into operation on all other Treaty Powers agreeing to its
conditions, but any morphia actually shipped before that date will not be affected by
this prohibition.
The Chinese Government on their side undertake to adopt measures at once ta
prevent the manufacture of morphia in China.
Art. XII.—China having expressed a strong desire to reform her judicial system
and to bring it into accord with that of Western nations, Great Britain agrees to
give every assistance to such reform, and she will also be prepared to relinquish her
extra-territorial rights when she is satisfied that the state of the Chinese laws, the
arrangement for their administration and other considerations warrant her in so
Art. XIII.—The missionary question in China being, in the opinion of the
Lliinese Government, one requiring careful consideration, so that, if possible, troubles
such as have occurred in the past may be averted in the future, Great Britain agrees
t° join in a Commission to investigate this question, and, if possible, to devise means
oi securing permanent peace between converts and non-converts, should such a
oniinission be formed by China and the Treaty Powers interested.
Art. XIV.—Whereas under Rule V. appended to the Treaty of Tientsin of 1858.
Htish merchants are permitted to export rice and all other grain from one port of
^iina to another under the same conditions in respect of security as copper “cash,”
18 now agreed that in cases of expected scarcity or famine from whatsoever cause in
lil^-r S^C^’ ^ie Chinese Government shall, on giving twenty-one days’ notice, be at
1 y to prohibit the shipment of rice and other grain from such district.

Should any vessel specially chartered to load rice or grain previously contracted
for have arrived at her loading port prior to or on the day when a notice of prohibition
to export comes into force, she shall be allowed an extra week in which to ship her
If during the existence of this prohibition, any shipment of rice or grain is allowed
by the authorities, the prohibition shall, ipso facto, be considered cancelled and eliall
not be re-imposed until six weeks’ notice has been given.
When a prohibition is notified, it will be stated whether the Government have any
Tribute or Army Eice which they intend to ship during the time of prohibition, and,,
if so, tlv- quantity shall be named.
Such r.ce shall not be included in the prohibition, and the Customs shall keep a
record of any Tribute or Army Kice so shipped or landed.
The Chinese Government undertake that no rice, other than Tribute or Army
Eice belonging to the Government, shall be shipped during ihe period of prohibition.
Notifications of prohibitions, and of the quantities of Army or Tribute Eice for
shipment shall be made by the Governors of the Province concerned..
Similarly, notifications of the removals of prohibitions shall be made by Ihe same
The export of rice and other grain to foreign countries remains prohibited.
Art. XV.—It is agreed that either of the High Contracting Parties to this Treaty
may demand a revision of the Tariff at the end of 10 years; but if no demand be made
on either side within 6 months after the end of the first 10 years, then the Tariff shall
remain in force for 10 years more, reckoned from the end of the preceding 10 years,
and so it shall be at the end of each successive 10 years.
Any Tariff concession which China may hereafter accord to articles of the produce
or manufacture of auy other State shall immediately be extended to similar articles
of the produce or manufacture of His Britannic Majesty’s Dominions by whomsoever
Treaties already existing between the United Kingdom and China shall continue
in force in so far as they are not abrogated or modified by stipulations of the present
Art. XVI.—The English and Chinese Texts of the present Treaty have been care-
fully compared, but in the event of there being any difference of meaning between
them, the sense as expressed in the English text shall be held to be the correct sense.
The ratifications of this Treaty, under the hand of His Majesty the King of
Great Britain and Ireland and of His Majesty the Emperor of China respectively shall
be exchanged at Peking within a year from this day of signature.

We have the honour to inform you that we have received the following telegram
from His Excellency Liu, Governor General of the Liang Chiang, on the subject of
Clause II. mutually agreed upon by us:
“As regards this clause, it is necessary to insert therein a clear stipulation, to the
l(effect that, no matter what changes may take place in the future, all Customs’ duties
“must continue to be calculated on the basis of the existing higher rate of the Haikwan
“Tael over the Treasury Tael, and that ‘ the touch ’ and weight of the former must be
“made good.”
As we have already arranged with you that a declaration of this kind should be
embodied in an Official Note, and form an annex to the present Treaty, for purposes of
record, we hereby do ourselves the honour make this communication.

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your despatch of the 14th inst »nt
forwarding copy of a telegram from Ilis Excellency Liu, Governor-General of the
Liang Chiang, on the subject of Article II. of the new Treaty, and in reply I have the
honour to state that His Excellency’s understanding of the Article is perfectly correct.
I presume the Chinese Government will make arrangements for the coinage of a
national silver coin of such weight and touch as may be decided upon by them.
These coins will be made available to the public in return for a quantity of silver
bullion of equivalent weight and fineness plus the usual mintage charge.
•The coins which will become the national coinage of China will be declared by
the Chinese Government to be legal tender in payment cf Customs duty and in
discharge of obligations contracted in Haikwan taels, but only at their proportionate
value to the Haikwan tael, whatever that may he.

^Acellcncies Liu and Chang, addressed the following telegraphic Memorial to the
„ \Of the revenue of the different Provinces derived from lekin of all kinds, a
Poi'bon is appropriated for the service of the foreign loans, a portion for the Peking
« overnment, and the balance is reserved for the local expenditure of the Provinces
concerned. 1

“ In the negotiations now being conducted with Great Britain for the amendment
“ of the Commercial Treaties, a mutual arrangement has been come to providing for
“ the imposition of additional taxes, in compensation for the abolition of all kinds of
“lekin and other imposts on goods, prohibited by Article VIII. After payment of
“ interest and sinking fund on the existing foreign loan, to the extent to which fe/cw
“ is thereto pledged, these additional taxes shall be allocated to the various Provinces
tl to make up deficiencies and replace revenue, in order that no hardships may be
“ entailed on them. With a view to preserving the original intention underlying the
“ proposal to increase the duties in compensation for the loss of revenue derived from
“lekin and other imposts on goods, it is further stipulated that the surtaxes shall not
“be appropriated for other purposes, shall not form part of the Imperial Maritime
“Customs revenue proper, and shall in no case be pledged as security for any new
“ foreign loan.
“It is therefore necessary to memorialize for the issue of an Edict, giving effect
“ to the above stipulations and directing the Board of Revenue to find out what
“proportion of the provincial revenues derived from lekin of all kinds, now about
“to be abolished, each Province has hitherto had to remit, and what proportion it
“has been entitled to retain, so that, when the Article comes into operation, due
“apportionment may be made accordingly, thus providing the Provinces with funds

foreign loan are not to be pledged to, or held to be security for, liabilities already
contracted by China except in so far as lekin revenue has already been pledged to an
existing loan.
I also understand from the Memorial that the whole of the surtaxes provided by
Article VIII. of the New Treaty goes to (he Provinces in proportions to be agreed

Province is obliged to remit to Peking the same contribution as that which it has

Shanghai, September 5tli, 1902.
We have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your communication of to-day’s
date with regard to the allocation of the surtax funds allotted to the Provinces, and to
inform you that the views therein expressed are the same as our own.
We would, however, wish to point out that, were the whole amount of the alloca-
tion due paid over to the Provinces, unnecessary expense would be incurred in the
retransmission by them of such portions thereof as would have to be remitted to
Peking in place of the contributions hitherto payable out of lekin revenue. The
amount, therefore, of the allocation due to the Provinces, arranged between them and
the Board of .Revenue, will be retained in the hands of the Maritime Customs, who
will await the instructions of the Provinces in regard to the remittance of such
portion thereof as may be necessary to fulfil their obligations, and (on receipt of
these instructions) will send forward the amount direct. The balance will be held
to the order of the Provinces.
In so far as lekin is pledged to the service of the 1893 loan, a similar method of
procedure will be adopted.
As you request that this correspondence be annexed to the Treaty, we have the
honour to state that we see no objection to this being clone.
Annex C
Additional Rules
1-—British steamship owners are at liberty to lease warehouses and jetties on the
banks of waterways from Chinese subjects for a term not exceeding 25 years, with
option of renewal on terms to be mutually arranged. In cases where British mer-
chants are unable to secure warehouses and jetties from Chinese subjects on satis-
factory terms, the local officials, after consultation with the Minister of Commerce,
shall arrange to provide these on renewable lease as above mentioned at current
equitable rates.
2.—Jetties shall only be erected in such positions that they will not obstruct the
inland waterway or interfere with navigation, and with the sanction of the nearest
Commissioner of Customs ; such sanction, however, shall not be arbitrarily withheld.
, .3.—British merchants shall pay taxes and contributions on these warehouses and
jetties on the same footing as Chinese proprietors of similar properties in the neigh-
bourhood. British merchants may only employ Chinese agents and staff to reside in
warehouses so leased at places touched* at by steamers engaged in inland traffic to
carry on their business; but British merchants may visit these places from time to
time to look after their affairs. The existing rights of Chinese jurisdiction over
blnnese subjects shall not by reason of this clause be diminished or interfered with
in any way.
4-—Steam vessels navigating the inland waterways of China shall be responsible
lor Joss caused to riparian proprietors by damage which they may do to the banks
01 W01’l event of China desiring to prohibit the use of some particular shallow" waterway by

launches, because there is reason to fear that the use of it by them would be likely
to injure the banks and cause damage to the adjoining country, the British
authorities, when appealed to, shall, if satisfied of the validity of the objection,
prohibit the use of that waterway by British launches, provided that Chinese
launches are also prohibited from using it.
Both Foreign and Chinese launches are prohibited from crossing dams and weirs
at present in existence on inland waterways where they are likely to cause injury to
such works, which would be detrimental to the water service of the local people.
5. —The main object of the British Government in desiring to see the inland
waterways of China opened to steam navigation being to afford facilities for the rapid
transport of both foreign and native merchandise, they undertake to offer no impedi-
ment to the transfer to a Chinese company and the Chinese flag of any British
steamer which may now or hereafter be employed on the inland waters of China
should the owner be willing to make the transfer.
In event of a Chinese company registered under Chinese law being formed to run
steamers on the inland waters of China the fact of British subjects holding shares in
such a company shall not entitle the steamers to flv the British flag.
6. —Registered steamers and their tows are forbidden, just as junks have always
been forbidden, to carry contraband goods. Infraction of this rule will entail the
penalties prescribed in the Treaties for such an offence, and cancellation of the Inland
Waters Navigation Certificate carried by the vessels, which will be prohibited from
thereafter plying on inland waters.
7. —As it is desirable that the people living inland should be disturbed as little
as possible by the advent of steam vessels to which they are not accustomed, inland
waters not hitherto frequeuted by steamers shall be opened ns gradually as may be
convenient to merchants and only as the owners of steamers may see prospects of
remunerative trade.
In cases where it is intended to run steam vessels on waterways on which such
vessels have not hitherto run, intimation shall be made to the Commissioner of
Customs at the nearest open port who shall report the matter to the Ministers of
Commerce. The latter, in conjunction with the Governor-General or Governor of
the Province, after careful consideration of all the circumstances of the case, shall at
once give their approval.
8. —A registered steamer may ply within the waters of a port, or from one open
port or ports to another open port or ports, or from one open port or ports of
places inland, and thence back to such port or ports. She may, on making due
report t > the Customs, land or ship passengers or cargo at any recognised places of
trade passed in the course of the voyage; but may not ply between inland places
exclusively except with the consent of the Chinese Government.
9. —Any cargo and passenger boats may be towed by steamers. The helmsman
and crew of any boat towed shall be Chinese. All boats, irrespective of ownership,
must be legistered before they can proceed inland.
10. —These Rules are supplementary to the Inland Steam Navigation Regulations
of July and September, 1898. The latter, where untouched by the present Rules,
remain in full force and effect: but the present Rules hold in the case of such of the
former Regulations as the present Rules affect. The present Rules, and the
Regulations of July and September, 1898, to which the? are supplementary, are
provisional and may be modified, as circumstances require, by mutual consent.

twenty-eighth year of Kwang Hsu.

Rule I.—Imports unenumerated in this Tariff will pay duty at the rate of
5 per cent, ad valorem; and the value upon which Duty is to be calculated shall be
the market value of the goods in local currency. This market value when converted
mto Haikwan Taels shall be considered to be 12 per cent, higher than the amount
upon which duty is to be calculated.
If the goods have been sold before presentation to the Customs of the
Application to pay Duty, the gross amount of the ~bona fide contract will be
accepted as evidence of the market value. Should the goods have been sold on
• and i. terms, that is to say, without inclusion in the price of duty and other
jarges, such c. f. and i. price shall be taken as the value for duty-paving purposes
1 nout the deduction mentioned in the preceding paragraph.

If the goods have not been sold before presentation to the Customs of the
application to pay duty, and should a dispute arise between Customs and importer
regarding the value or classification of goods, the case will be referred to a Board of
Arbitration composed as follows:—
An official of the Customs ;
A merchant selected by the Consul of the importer; and
A merchant, differing in nationality from the importer, selected by the
Senior Consul.
Questions regarding procedure, etc., which may arise during the sittings of the
Board shall be decided by the majority. The final finding of the majority of the
Board, which must be announced within fifteen days of the reference (not including
holidays), will be binding upon both parties. Each of the two merchants on the
Board will be entitled to a fee of ten flaikwan Taels. Should the Board sustain
the Customs valuation, or, in the event of not sustaining that valuation, should it
decide that the goods have been undervalued by the importer to the extent of not less
than 7| per cent., the importer will pay the fees; if otherwise, the fees will be paid,
by the Customs. Should the Board decide that the correct value of the goods is
20 per cent, (or more) higher than that upon which the importer originally claimed
to pay duty, the Customs authorities may retain possession of the goods until full
duty has been paid and may levy an additional duty equal to four times the duty
sought to be evaded.
In all cases invoices, when available, must be produced if required by the Customs’
Bule II.—The following will not be liable to Import Duty: Foreign Rice,
Cereals, and Flour; Gold and Silver, both Bullion and Coin; Printed Books,.
Charts, Maps, Periodicals and Newspapers.
A freight or part freight of Duty-free commodities (Gold and Silver Bullion
and Foreign Coins excepted) will render the vessel carrying them, though no other
xargo be on board, liable to Tonnage Dues.
Drawbacks will be issued for Ship’s Stores and Bunker Coal when taken on
Bule III.—Except at the requisition of the Chinese Government, or for sale
to Chinese duly authorised to purchase them, Import trade is prohibited in all
Arms, Ammunition, and Munitions of War of every description. No Permit to
land them will be issued until the Customs have proof that the necessary authority
has been given to the Importer. Infraction of this rule will be punishable by
confiscation of all the goods concerned. The import of Salt is absolutely prohibited.
Notification issued by the Imperial Maritime Customs at Canton on the 14th
November, 1901.
Notice is hereby given that:—
1.—On and after the 11th inst., the Tariff of Import Duties hitherto existing and
the list of Duty-free Goods cease to be operative, and, until further notice, whatever
is imported with certain exceptions is to pay an effective 5 per cent, ad valorem

2. —The exceptions are as follows:—
(a.) Foreign Eice, Cereals and Flour, as well as Gold and Silver, coined and
uncoined, are exempt from duty.
(&.) The Import Duty on Opium remains unchanged at thirty taels, that
and lelcin at the rate of eighty taels, or one hundred and ten taels in
all, per picul, being payable simultaneously, as at present.
(c.) Foreign Goods on the way to China or which shall have been despatched
to China within six days after the signature of the Protocol—that is,
on or before the 13th September—are to pay Import Duty according
to the old Tariff, a fixed duty if enumerated, and an ad valorem 5 per
cent, duty if unenumerated, and are to be exempt from duty if on the
Duty-free list. Goods despatched after the 13th September are to pay
an effective 5 per cent, according to the new rule.
• (d.) Merchandise taken out of bond is to pay duty according to it3 liability
on the day of bonding—that is, if already in bond, or if bonded on any
future day, but forming part of a cargo now on the way to China, or
despatched to China on or before the 13th September, it is to be treated
according to the old Tariff and Tariff Eules. All other bonded imports
are to pay an effective 5 per cent.
(e.) Whatever is imported for the use of Legations at Peking is exempt
from Import Duty—applications for Exemption Permits, etc., to be
countersigned and sealed by the Consulate of the Legation concerned.
(f.) Whatever is shipped or discharged for the use of Foreign forces,
military or naval, is exempt from Import Duty—applications for
Exemption Permits, etc., to be countersigned and sealed by the
Consulate of the flag concerned.
3. —The values on which the new Tariff is to fix duties will be the average
values for the three years 1897, 1898, 1899. Where the valuation . . . <
is questioned, the market value of the day minus duty and charges, or where that
cannot be ascertained, invoice value plus 10 per cent, will rule instead; but as this
will involve detention of goods concerned at owner’s risk and expense till such
market, or, failing market, invoice value can be ascertained and settled, it is hoped
the valuation .... will be acquiesced in.
Goods exported pay duty according to the Tariff hitherto existing.
5.—Coast Trade Duty, which is not an Import Duty, but a Coast Duty on native
produce inwards, remains as before, and i3 not affected by the effective 5 per cent*

Special Stipulations to the Supplementary Convention
Dor the sake of greater clearness and completeness, it has seemed fitting to
append a number of special stipulations to the Supplementary Convention.
The following stipulations must be observed by the subjects of both the
contracting parties, in the same way as the stipulations of the Treaty itself. In
proof whereof the Plenipotentiaries of the two States have thereto set their seals and
1. —In accordance with the newly-granted privileges for the port of Woosung
in the province of Kiangsu, German ships shall be at liberty to take in and to
unload there merchandise which is either intended for Shanghai or comes from
Shanghai; and for this purpose the competent authorities there shall have the right
of devising regulations in order to prevent frauds on the taxes and irregularities of
every kind ; which regulations shall be binding for the merchants of both countries,
German merchants are not at liberty to construct landing-places for ships, merchants’
houses, or warehouses at the said place.
2. —An experiment to ascertain whether bonded warehouses can be established
in the Chinese open ports shall first be made at Shanghai. For this purpose
the Customs Director at the said place, with the Customs Inspector-General, shall
forthwith draw up regulations suitable to the local conditions, and then the said
Customs Director and liis colleagues shall proceed to the establishment of such bonded
3. —If any goods found on board a German ship, for the discharge whereof a
written permit from the Customs Office is required, are not entered in the manifest,

rthis shall be taken as proof of a false manifest, no matter whether a certificate of
the reception of such goods on board, bearing the captain’s signature, be produced
â– or not.
4. —If a German ship, in consequence of damages received in one of the open
•Chinese ports, or outside thereof, needs repair, the time required for such repair
shall be reckoned in addition to the term after the lapse of which tonnage-dues are
to be paid. The Chinese authorities have the right to make the necessary arrange-
ments for this purpose. But if it appears therefrom that this is only a pretext ancl
a design to evade the legal payments to the Customs, the ship therein concerned shall
be fined in double the amount of the tonnage-dues whereof it has tried to evade the
5. —No ships of any kind which belong to Chinese subjects are allowed to make,
use of the German flag. If there are definite grounds for suspicion that this has
nevertheless been done, the Chinese authority concerned is to address an official
communication thereon to the German Consul, and if it should be shown, in con-
sequence of the investigation instituted by him, that the ship was really not entitled
to bear the German flag, the ship as well as the goods found therein, so far as they
â– belong to Chinese merchants, shall be immediately delivered over to the Chinese
authorities for further disposal. If it be ascertained that German subjects were
aware of the circumstances, and took part in the commission of the irregularity, the
whole of the goods belonging to them found in the ship are liable to confiscation,
and the people themselves to punishment according to law.
In case a German ship carries the Chinese flag without authority to do so, then,
if it be ascertained through the investigation made by the Chinese authorities that
the ship was really not entitled to bear the Chinese flag, the ship, as well as the
goods found therein, so far as they belong to German merchants, shall be imme-
diately delivered over to the German Consul for further disposal and the punishment
â– of the guilty. If it be shown that German owners of goods were aware of the cir-
cumstance and took part in the commission of this irregularity, all the goods belong-
ing to them found in the ship shall incur the penalty of confiscation by the Chinese
authorities. The goods belonging to Chinese may be immediately seized by the
Chinese authorities.
6. —If on the sale of the materials of a German ship which, from unseaworthi-
ness, has been brohen up in one of the open Chinese ports, an attempt be made to
mix up with them goods belonging to the cargo, these goods shall be liable to con-
fiscation, and, moreover, to a fine equal to double the amount of the import duty which
they would otherwise have had to pay.
7. —If German subjects go into the interior with foreign goods, or travel there,
the passes or certificates issued to them shall only be valid for thirteen Chinese
months, reckoned from the day of their issue, and after the lapse of that term must no
longer be used. The expired passes and certificates must be returned to the Customs
authorities in whose official district they were issued in order to be cancelled.
■N.B.—If a pleasure excursion be undertaken into regions so distant that the
term of a year appears insufficient, this must be noted on the pass by reason of an
understanding between the Consul and the Chinese authority at the time it is issued.
If the return of the passport be omitted, no further pass shall be issued to the
person concerned until it has taken place. If the pass be lost, no matter whether â– 
within the term or after its expiration, the person concerned must forthwith make a
formal declaration of the fact before the nearest Chinese authority. The Chinese
official applied to will then do what else may be necessary for the invalidation of
the pass. If the recorded declaration prove to be untrue, in case the transport
of goods be concerned, they will be confiscated ; if the matter relate to travelling,
the traveller will be taken to the nearest Consul, and be delivered up to him for
8. —Materials for German docks only enjoy, in so far as they are actually
omployed for the repair of ships, the favour of duty-free importation in open ports.
Ihe Customs authority has the right to send inspectors to the dock to convince

themselves on the spot as to the manner and way in which the materials are being
used. If the construction of a new ship be concerned, the materials employed for
this, in so far as they are specially entered in the import or export tariff, will be
reckoned at the tariff duty, and those not entered in the tariff at a duty of 5 per
cent, ad valorem, and the merchant concerned will be bound to pay this duty
Any one who wishes to lay out a dock is to get from the Customs office a gratia
Concession certificate, and to sign a 'written undertaking, the purport and wording
whereof is to be settled in due form by the Customs office concerned.
9.—Art. XXIX. of the Treaty of the 2nd September, 1861, shall be applicable
to the fines established by this present Supplementary Convention.

Kwang Hsu, 6tli year, 2nd month, 21st day.
(Peking, March 31st, 1880.)
With regard to the stipulation contained in the second Article of the Supple-
mentary Convention concluded on occasion of the Treaty revision, that German
sailing-ships which lie for a longer time than fourteen days in Chinese ports shall
only pay for the time,, beyond that term the moiety of the tonnage dues settled
by Treaty, the Plenipotentiaries of the two contracting parties have agreed and
declared that the said stipulation shall first of all be introduced by way of trial,
and that in case, on carrying it out, practical difficulties should arise, another stipula-
tion may be put in its place on the basis of a renewed joint discussion by both
The undersigned, who have been expressly empowered by their Government to
make the following arrangements, have agreed that the term settled by the Pleni-
potentiaries of the German Empire and of China in the Supplementary Convention
concluded at Peking oil the 31st March this year, for the exchange of the Ratifica-
tion of the Convention, shall be prolonged till the 1st December, 1881.
The other stipulations of the Supplementary Convention of the 31st March, this
year, are not affected by this alteration.
In witness whereof the undersigned have subscribed with their own hands and.
affixed their seals to this Agreement, in two copies of each of the German and
Chinese texts, which have been compared with each other and found to correspond.
Done at Peking the twenty-first August, one thousand eight hundred aud eighty,

I. —His Majesty the Emperor of China, being desirous of preserving the existing
good relations with His Majesty the Emperor of Germany, and of promoting an
increase of German power and influence in the Ear East, sanctions the acquirement
under lease by Germany of the land extending for 100 li at high tide (at Kiaochow).
His Majesty the Emperor of China is willing that German troops should take
possession of the above-mentioned territory at any time the Emperor of Germany
chooses. China retains her sovereignty over this territory, and should she at any
time wish to enact law’s or carry out plans within the leased area, she shall be at
liberty to enter into negotiations with Germany with reference thereto; provided
always that such laws or plans shall not be prejudicial to German interests. Germany
may engage in works for the public benefit, such as water-works, within the territory
covered by the lease, without reference to China. Should China wish to march troops
or establish garrisons therein she can only do so after negotiating w’ith and obtaining
the express permission of Germany.
II. —His Majesty the Emperor of Germany, being desirous, like the rulers of
certain other countries, of establishing a naval and coaling station and constructing
dockyards on the coast of China, the Emperor of China agrees to lease to him for the
purpose all the land on the southern and northern sides of Kiaochow Bay for a term
of ninety-nine years. Germany is to be at liberty to erect forts on this land for the
defence of her possessions therein.
III. —During the continuance of the lease China shall have no voice in the
government or administration of the leased territory. It will be governed and
administered during the whole term of ninety-nine years solely by Germany, so that
the possibility of friction between the two Powers may be reduced to the smallest
magnitude. The lease covers the following districts:—
(a)—All the land in the nor^h-east of Lienhan, adjacent to the north-eastern
mouth of the Bay, within a straight line drawn from the north-eastern corner of
Yintao to Laoshan-wan.
(&.)—All the land in the south-west of Lienban, adjacent to the southern mouth
of the Bay, within a straight line drawn from a point on the shore of the Bay bearing
south-west by south from Tsi-pe-shan-to.
(c.J—Tsi-pe-shan-to and Yintao.
(d.)—The whole area of the Bay of Kiaochow covered at high-water.
(e.)—Certain islands at the entrance of the Bay which are ceded for the purpose
of erecting forts for the defence of the German possessions. The boundaries of the
leased territory shall hereafter be more exactly defined by a commission appointed
jointly by the Chinese and German Governments, and consisting of Chinese and
German subjects. Chinese ships of war and merchant-ships, and ships of war and
merchant-ships of countries having treaties and in a state of amity w’ith China shall
receive equal treatment with German ships of war and merchant ships in Kiaochow
Bay during the continuance of the lease. Germany is at liberty to enact any regula-
tions she desires for the government of the territory and harbour, provided such
regulations apply impartially to the ships of all nations, Germany and China included.
, IV.—Germany shall be at liberty to erect whatever lighthouses, beacons, and other
aids to navigation she chooses within the territory leased, and along the islands and
coasts approaching the entrance to the harbour. Vessels of China and vessels of
other countries entering the harbour shall be liable to special duties for the repair
*j^d maintenance of all lighthouses, beacons and other aids to navigation which
hermany may erect and establish. Chinese vessels shall be exempt from other
i fecial duties.
