The Chinese times
The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
December 14P.2 1) Ambassador Yip announced on Dec. 13 that he had already acknowledged the Chinese community that they should give a report of their losses during the war-time period. However, the total loss reported by the Chinese community did not exceed $500,000. Yip thus hoped that any Chinese who wanted to claim indemnity should report to the Embassy before Dec. 20 for assessment.P.2-3 2) The policemen's Committee held a meeting whereby the chairman was the mayor( ). There was a report that recently, a Chinese had sent a letterto the mayor about his gambling joint in Chinatown. The Chinese asserted that he had given protection fee for his business. The mayor thus assumed that there was bribery in the Chinatown area. The mayor then added that the department issued no license to clubs which offered gambling, and to prevent further gmabling, a 29-man inspection team was set up to check the clubs. (There were about 1000 Chinese gamblers arrested in 1918).P.3 3) News from Victoria: On Dec. 13 (at 9 p.m.), 13 Chinese stores and organizations in Victoria were being searched by the police.
