The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
January 19p.3 1) The CBA in Vancouver sent an appeal to Ambassador Wong on Jan. 16 asking him to appeal for an extension of business hours for Chinese merchants. The CBA asserted that the by-law regulating that all stores close at 6 p.m. was indeed a drastic measure against the Chinese workers because they were unable to buy provisions. (Most Chinese workers were single and they worked from 7:00-6:00 which allowed them no time to shop.) It was hoped that Ambassadoe Wong could appeal to the City Council for 2 hour extension for Chinese stores.2) The Chinese government had sent military experts to investigate the war conditions in Europe, e.g. the army force in Peking had sent to France, andhe had saild to France from Vancouver on Jan. 9th.
