HOW PUBLIC UTILITIES ARE AFFECTED.
AMPLE SUPPLIES OF PROVISIONS.
Phenomenal Chinese Exodus to Canton.
Today the general strike of Chinese has assumed great proportions, every hour adding to the numbers out. The authorities have the situation well in hand, and an important proclamation has been issued by the Governor. Food supplies are ample, and exports are being strictly eximined. At the time of going to Press the Ferries and the Peak Trams were still manned by Chinese.
The Hongkong Boy Scout's Association is doing its "bit" and arrangements in hand by which this help will be considerably extended if necessary. At present there are several qualified Scouts working in hospitals and many others are holding themselves in readiness for all sorts of other work, down to working in lifts if necessary. The Rev. G.T.Waldegrave, Commissioner, informed us on enquiry that all Scouts had been asked to report to Headquarters. The parade arranged to take place at Government House on Wednesday had been cancelled.
