The Chinese times
The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
January 22nd. FridayP. 3 (1) It became very inconvenient to correspond with relatives and friends in Canton. There was the evidence that incoming and outgoing nails were being checked or read by a commissioner.(One of the employees of the Chinese Times received an ordinary family letter and discovered that it had been opened for checking. He was amazed to find that the authority would suspect him or the Chinese Times who were on the same political trend as the Chinese authority.) This commissioner was to make sure that the mail did not contain any revolutionary ideas. If the letter was okay, a seal bearing the name j|^ f. k-J(\ ^£?Jfe ^H/£ fL^Ml^t^t was stamped at the back and was sent to the addressed. However, if the letter was found suspicious, the addressed would be arrested for questioning. Appeals were obviously made to abolish such act because it was unreasonable to judge a person on the basis of one letter. Moreover, there was the danger of letting villains persecute their enemies by sending suspicious letters.P.3 (2) The provincial government in Victoria had set up a law to prohibit marriage between mongoloids and whites.
