Luzon and under the forceful di

"If the nnny bill is uot passed,

ON CHINESE PERMITS
Solicitor General Renders Opinion on
Chinese Who Resided Here Hay Return
Aug. 12 Named as Date When Ex
Washington, Fob. 22. Solici
tor General J. K. Richards has
rendered an opinion,' which has
b-en approved by tho Attorney
General, in which ho holds that
tho Socretary of the Troasury has
authority to admit to tho Hawaii
an Islands such Ohineso persons
as departed therefrom undor the
regulations of the existing gov
ernment allowing them to return,
but who would bo excluded by the
extension to tho islauds of the
laws and reflations now opera
tive within the United States.
After reviewing tho hintory of
tho legislation aud tho decisions of
tho courts ou tho subject the Soli
citor General says in part:
An alien readout s not an
alten immigrant. Under our
alien immigration acts it has bion
held that au alien who has resid
ed in (his country without becom
ing naturalized and who departs
with the intention of returning is
uot tn bo deemed an immigrant
whan he first entered tho country.
Applying this wholes mo doc
trine to tho caps submitto'l, the
Chinese who, uudor the former
government of the Hawaiian Isl
ands, beenmo domiciled iu the
islands, acquired certain rights,
among which wbb tho right to
leave tho islands for a temporary
ptirpo'o and return. It is not to
bo presumed that Congress,
which recognizes tho right
of such Ohinoso to bo and
remain in the islands, intended to
iuterfeio with the incidental right
of returning to the islands after a
temporary absence. Ohiuoe
laboreis have been for years nb
solutely prohitiitt-d from comiuu
into tho United States; vet nil the
timo wo have pomrittod aud now
permit tho Oliiuoxo laborers law
fully within the United States to
leave this country for a temporary
purpose and return.
Acooidiugly, iu viow of tho
manifest injustice of the interfer
ing with a right incidental to law
ful residence iu the inlands, the
words "no further immigration"
should bo construed so as to
apply only to actual additional
immigration into tho islands,
namely, tho coming of Chineeo
into the islands for the first time
after annexation, and not to tho
return to tho islands of Ohineso
who lmvo a lawful residence there
and aro simply exorcising tho
rocognized right of returning,
after a temporary absence, to their
business aud their homes.
Tlioro aro, howovor, twomoio
questions which nro still in tho
air and upon which Alexander
Robertson, who has boen hero as
attorney for tho Chinese, expects
to have a deoisiou soon. Thoso
aro tho admission of female rela
tives of residents and of "travel
ers," as the Chinese aro termed
who have come to tho islands for
torrn of not more than six
raonthb on business, and who un
der the old laws had to givo bondB
of 8500 for their doparturo at the
end of that timo. Taking all tho
questions into consideration,
thore aro 482 Ohinoso who aro to
bo affected by tho rulings. Thero
seems to be a hcliof that the entiro
problem will bo solved to tho satia
fno'ion of tho Ohineso. Of tho
entiro number tlioro nro very few
who would bo clashed as laborers.

points mentioned as undecided iu

Besides, it shows that permits
to Ohineso issued evon up to tho
