April 10, ThursdayP.2-3 1. Before the shingle workers strike was over, the management tried to reachand negotiate with the Chinese workers so that they would return to work at a slightlyreduced wage (i.e. to reduce only 1/2 of the original proposed rate). However, theChinese workers held a general meeting and elected andto argue and explain their difficult positions to the management. As a result, theChinese workers won their case. It was reported however, that a few Chinese villianswere responsible for delaying the negotiations between the 2 sides, and they were tryingto exploit the rights of their fellow Chinese workers.2. Ambassador Yeung announced on April 5 the new immigration law as stated on April 5, P.3.3. An alderman in Victoria ( ) proposed in the provincial legislature that Chinese be prohibited from employing female whites or letting them reside in their operations. If there were violations of these laws, the Chinese would be fined $200 or 2 months in prison. Ambassador Yeung immediately negotiated the case with the federal government on April 3 by stating that if all the other provinces had abolished such restrictive laws, B.C. should be prohibited from carrying out the law too
