THE CHINESE QUESTION.
nm'ont or committee to the legis
lature. To the Hon. W. 11. Castle, Presi
dent of tho Legislative Assembly,
A. U. 1888.
Sir: The undersigned, a special
cotntnitteo to whom were referred
several matters relating to Chinese
and Chinese and Chinese and Asia
tic immigration, beg leave to sub
mit their report.
Throe petitions and ono proposed
constitutional amendment were re
ferred to them, to wit:
1. Petition number 12 merely
commending the course of the Legis
lature in attempting to control Chi
nese immigration, and which there
fore we here recommend be received
and laid on the table.
2. Petition number 93 from cer
tain prominent Chinese merchants,
praying that tho law requiring pho
tographs of persons seeking return
ing permits may be repealed, and
that the fee for return permits may
be reduced to two dollars.
3. Petition number 05 from a
large number of citizens and resi
dents relative to Asiatic immigra
tion, and containing fourteen speci
gc prayers relating thereto and to
Asiatic residents in this Kingdom ;
4. A constitutional amendment
numbered 57 relating to Chinese.
In regard to petition number 93
from prominent Chinese merchants,
your committee recommend that tho
same be laid dn the table. This
petition prays that the regulation be
abolished tcquiring that Chinese de
parting from the Kingdom and re
quiring .return permits shall be pho
tographed as a means of identifica
tion. The frauds perpetrated upon
the Government in regard to Chi
nese return permits, when it-retained
no means of identifying those
who received them, Bhowed that
Chinese could not be allowed the
same freedom in this respect as
other citizens and residents without
abusing it so that the Government
was compelled either to adopt some
means of identification in issuing re
turn permits, or to become the
sport of those who received them.
The Chinese have compelled this
regulation in regard to photographs
by their own couduct. By Chinese
we do not mean all Chinese, but
Chinese as a class. If there was
any practicable way of relaxing this
regulation in individual gases where
it was clearly unnecessary the com
mittee would recommend it, but in
their opinion there is no way to do
this without seriously impairing the
law. While your committee sin
cerely believe that the Chinese mer
chants in this Kingdom as a class
have many admirable qualities, yet
your committee are compelled to
say, that in loo many cases many of
them render but scaut assistance or
information to the Government in
its necessary efforts to control the
mass of their countrymen residing
The same wholesale evasions of
law in regard to passports exist, it
is believed, in still greater degree in
the matter of taxation and tho vag
rancy law, and the Government re
ceives so little assistance from law
abiding Chinese in these respects,
that it is time the Government pro
tected itself, and while the Govern
ment undoubtedly would fain give
Chinese all the immunities enjoyed
by other citizens it cannot safely do
so until they themselves learn bet
ter to use them. In justice to the
Chinese, however, the committee
wish to say that undoubtedly the
main reason that Chinese as a class
evado the revenue taxation and kin
dred laws more than any other
races is, that there is far greater
opportunity, and therefore more
temptation for them to do so owing
to the fact that the mass of them
cannot bo identified or individual
ized. This petition also prays that the
85 fee for return permits be reduced
to 82. The committee believe that
the extra oxpenso of the Govern
ment necessitated by this class of
passports will about offset the extra
fee charged therefor, therefore think
it unwise to reduce tho same.
Petition number 55 with fourteen
specific prayers relating to Asiatics.
Instead of entering into a detailed
recital and consideration of each
proyer of this petition, your com
mittco consider that the sumo results
can bo obtained by giving in brief
the lindings of facts and conclusion,
tho committee has come to after
having very caiefully canvassed tho
whole subject of Asiatic immigra
tion, and having taken the evidence
and consulted with many persons of
different views on this subject.
Your committee find that the
classification and identification of
Japanese with Chinese is not justi
fied b3' the facts ; that the habits,
traits of character and tendencies of
the two races aru radically different,
and therefore recommend that tho
consideration of Japanese in tho
issue now before us .be eliminated.
Undoubtedly some legislation in re
gard to Japanese immigration may
lioin time to time be required, but
it will be of a class entirely differ
ent from that required in regard to
Chinese. Japanese immigration
under proper restrictions should bo
encouraged as the best pattial sub
stitute for Chlneso labor in this
Kingdom, bringing as it docs i class
jyGo to tho Aucade and get one
of llictu Piue Kinbroldcrcd Dresses,
who aro willing to adopt Western
civilization, and who can bo incor
porated into our industrial system
without sctiously disjointing it.
In regard to the Chinese, your
committee find tho following facts:
Chinese labor in company with other
labor is needed for field work on
rice nud sugar plantations in this
Kingdom, it not being safe to rely
exclusively on Japanese labor, the
same being liable to recall by the
Japanese Government, and Portu
guese with largo families needing
wages that can only he permanently
assured to thuni in the higher class
of labor on plantations and in the
minor or middle' industries of the
Tlio Committee on the other hand
find that competition of other races
with Chinese is impossible, and that
whenever other races arc forced into
such competition the result is not
competition but substitution of the
Chinese for their competitors.
That the Chinese are absorbing
the different minor industries, me
chanical, agricultural and commer
cials this K ngdom; and your
Committee see nothing to prevent
them ultimately reducing the King
dom practically to a Chinese colony
witli scattering people of other na
tionalities here and there among
them, and this even though no more
Chinese arc introduced for the pres
ent, because, outside of the sugar
and rice industries, very few com
paratively find employment serves
to retain in the country the higher
class of artizans and middle men
upon whom the Government must
rely to preserve constitutional repre
sentative Government in average
purity, and there are enough Chinese
now in the country to swallow up
such employments unless checked
How to remedy tho evil is a most
serious question, and one that has
been very fully discussed by the
After mature deliberation the
Committee believe the Government
should adopt the following policy in
regard to Chinese.
1st. That no Chinese shall here
after be allowed to immigrate to this
Kingdom exi-ept such as aro needed
to supply labor for the rice and
sugar industries, and all who arc al
lowed to enter for that purpose shall
be prohibited by law from engaging
in any oilier occupation whatsoever,
and shall stay for a term of yeais
only, to return home thereafter un
less an extension of time is granted
upon like conditions.
2nd. As to Chinese already in
the Kingdom. Thatjthe Government
shall by law prevent those now em
ployed as dav laborers from engag
ing in any other occupation. And
as to those who are already engaged
in other occupations, that the power
bo given to the Legislature of ab
ridging from time to time their right
to continue in the same, more parti
cularly the trades, whenever oppor
tunity offers of so doing without un
due injustice or infiingement of
of vested rights, and the exigencies
and needs of people of other nation
nltics demand it.
To carry out such a policy the
Constitution needs to he amended,
and the Committee, therefore, re
commend that the proposed consti
tutional amendment, numbered bill
number 57, and referred to this
Committee with certain amendments,
do pass, and be submitted to the
elections in 1890. A copy of such
constitutional amendment as modified
by the Committee is hereto attached
and made a part hereof. The House
is already acquainted with its main
points. It has been modified in sonic
respects and widened in others, by
the Committee, but ns it now stands
will, it is believed, if ultimately
adopted, give' the Legislature power
to deal with the Chinese question
along tho line of tho policy above
The only other legislation that
your Committee can recommend is a
bill hereto attached requiring labor
ers to take out a licenso before
authorized to do common labor in
this Kingdom, such license to bu
good only for two years and only for
the District in which it is gi anted.
This bill, it is believed, is constitu
tional, and necessary as a police
regulation, serving to identify, indi
vidualize and locate laborers, thus
doing much to prevent evasion of
taxation, vagrancy and other laws
and to climiiiato that class of semi
idle pcninibulatoiy labor that is now
lloating around tho country and con
gregating in the towns.
In conclusion, your Committee
consider that in vecommending tho
passage of the constitutional amend
ment and bill in question, they have
granted the main relief asked for in
petition number 55, populaily known
as the Auti-Chiuese petition, and
therefore iccommend that tho same
he laid upon the table to bo con
sidered witli this report and the bill
and constitutional amendment ac
companying tho same.
