This chapter examines the dissatisfaction that was made manifest with the Hong Kong Observatory in 1887, particularly in matters related to meteorology. The criticisms were centered on director August William Doberck's antagonism to the Manila Observatory and his over-excessive focus on astronomy and terrestrial magnetism matters. And in keeping with this charge, Doberck made no effort to make weather forecasts, except for the warning of approaching storms.
