Ships of very heavy tonnage cannot go as far as Shang-hai ; the new chan-
nel, opened inSeptember igio, only allows vessels with a draught of less than
23 ft. to reach Huang-p'u at half-tide, but steam-launches run up the river
in an hour and a half ; it is quicker to take the railway.

The new channel is 18 ft. deep and from 640 to 800 ft wide at low water.

Wu-sung, an ancient city at the mouth of the Blue River,
now submerged within the estuary. The name was retained
to designate the anchorage and has been extended to a town
which has recently sprung up near the mouth of the Huang-
p'u in the Hsien of Pao-shan, whose walls and tower can be seen
in the W.

On the W. bank, the town of Wu-sung (10 min. from the
anchorage), then the wharf, railway and Woosung Hotel (15
min.) ; anchorage of Chinese gun-boats (20 min.). In 55 min.,
the first spinning-mills are reached, then, on the E. bank, boat-
building and repairing yards. A panoramic view is afforded of
the town of Shang-hai : Hung-k'ou, the Bund with its fine build-
ings and lastly the French Concession, before reachmg the
docks and Chinese town.

For the arrival and information, Hotels and Custom-house : See Shang-
hai.

« It may not be out of place to mention here that, for the Chinese, the main
stream is what we call the Su-chou Creek, they the Wu-sung-chiang which,
coming from the Su-chou region, receives as a tributary at Shang-hai the
Huang-p'u or P'u-chiang and enters the sea (Yang-tzu estuary) near the town
of Wu-sung. It is only recently that the Huang-p'u, which Europeans took
for the main-stream with the Su-chou Creek as a tributary, acquired the
great volume and majestic breadth which belongs to it to-day and which



284 cMiANG-Su [r. 2]

far exceeds those of the parent stream. The latter, of but little depth, loses
itself in the Huang-p'u at Hung-k'ou Bridge, Shang-hai. The Huang-p'u
continues its course to Wu-sung and the delta of the Yang-tzu {A.
Vissiire).

Woo-sung Forts (Wu-sung). The station, near some Chinese

shore on which a landing-stage has been built ; it serves the
district city Pao-shan Hsien in the N., and the Japanese Con-

Woo-sung Creek, whence a canal leads to Nan-chiang-chen.

Chiang-wah-pang.

Shang-hai. The station is in the territory of the districts
Cha-pei and Pao-shan and on the confines of the Foreign Set-
tlement, the « International Concession » of Shang-hai.

A Tramway crosses the Central District by Fo3-kienStreet and continues,
via the French Concession, to St. Catherine's Bridge.

2. Shang-hai

The pronunciation <' Shang-ai » is often heard but this is incorrect. The
medial h should be strongly aspirated : Shang-er'h {a)i.

The hotels send their omnibuses to meet the traias. The Custom-house
officials make a cursory examination of personal luggage, but cases are de-
tained for closer inspection.

Stations : There are two stations ; one on the Nanking or Wu-sung line,
beyond Hung-k'ou, is served by a system of tramways. The other, at Lo-
ka-pang, S. of the Chinese city, is on the Hang-chou line ; take the tram as
far as the boundary of the French Concession then a rickshaw.
