The Chinese times
The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
Jan. 23rd. Thurs.P.2-3 1. Consul General Yip announced on Jan. 22 that the English newspaper had derogated the Chinese community by stating that the Chinese had committed over 1,000 criminal offences annually. Yip stated that such derogation was a result of a report on the Sun Jan. 14, and the Chinese Times 15th P.3 which reported that there were 10 Chinese opium smokers residing in the same house with a corpse. Yip hoped that Chinese individuals would use self-discipline and save the reputation of the overall Chinese community. 2. News from Saskatchewan:8 years ago the Saskatchewan Provincial Legislature had established a restrictive law prohibiting Chinese from employing female whites. In March, 1918, Ambassador Yeung went to negotiate with the Saskatchewan premier hoping that he would alter the law. Eventually, Yeung was successful in gaining some rights for the Chinese.In December, 1918, Ambassador Yeung even asked for a complete abolishment of the law. His appeal was granted on Jan. 17, 1919, and from then, Chinese were allowed to employ female whites freely. P.S.: A brief review of the law: 1912:- the restrictive law was set up.- an anti-restrictive law committee was set up at the same time.- the 2 ex-Chinese Chief Ambassadors Wong and Lo had tried to help. Ambassador Lo even went to England for the case, however, the result was disappointing.1913: was fined $100 for employing a female whitewaitress. Even though he appealed to the provincial court, his case was defeated.1914: Winnipeg and Toronto both intended setting up a restrictive law, but Ambassador Yeung had defeated them successfully.1919: The restrictive law in Saskatchewan was abolished.3. 15 Opium smokers were arrested in Victoria. They were fined $17.50
