§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, if he has received any telegrams from the Governor of Hong Kong regarding a fresh outbreak of the Buebonic Plague, which caused such disastrous results there last year; and are the telegrams of a reassuring character?
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
The telegrams as they are received have been and are communicated to the newspapers. A telegram of the 29th ultimo stated that three sporadic cases of the plague had occurred within the Colony. A telegram of the 4th instant stated that there were no more cases.
