The Chinese times
The Chinese times (Vancouver, B.C.)
July 18th, Wednesday P.31. Ambassador Yeung sent a letter on July 12th to criticize the inefficiency of the C.B.A. because the association had misinterpreted his letter of June 28th and made a serious mistake. (The letter by Yeung was inJuly 4th, P.3 and the misinterpretation by the C.B.A. was in July 7th, P.3.)The C.B.A. had mistakenly announced that the government had cancelled the 6 months relaxation period and had recalled all Chinese immigrant workers. Such announcement meant panic among the Overseas Chinese who were still in China; so the Ambassador would like to correct theannouncement by the C.B.A. and he confirmed that the 6 mos. relaxation period was still valid for those who left Canada before Dec. 31st, 1916. Thosewho left Canada after Jan. 1917, were only allowed to be absent for 1 year. They were obviously exempt from the 6 month relaxation period.2. News from New Westminster:The brick- factory workers ( "^ ^^j- Igj ) in Vancouver and New Westminster had held a meeting to discuss the issue of shorter working hours; they even intended to go on strike. The workers even distributed circulars for the Chinese co-workers hoping they would participate in their action. This was indeed the first case whereby the whites were willing to work with the Chinese. However, there was a simple reason for such 'leniency'. It was because there were over 70% Chinese workers in this business, and without their co-operation, the demand of the white workers would go in vain. P.63. The regulations to select students to be sent abroad. The regulations were designed by the Education department in China
