Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta fi THE IETHBR1DGE HERALD Saturday, May 2, 1970 Immigration Laws Hard On Early Chinese Settlers CALGARY (CP) Chinese settlers coming to Canada in 1914 often suffered under tho immigration laws of that time, an old record shows. A collection of 300 letters wit- ten in 1014 by the Chinese con- sul has been donated to the Glenbow-Alberta Institute. 11 gives a contemporary view of the era and a graphic picture ol the sufferings imposed by tho head tax, a museum spokesman said.

Ship cap- tains in Chinese ports extolled the virtues of Canada to attract paying passengers. Then many immigrants had to use their en- tire savings to pay the tax on top of their passage and wero unable to get a start when they arrived. Most Chinese communities cared for the new immigrants and rarely asked for outside as- sistance. But some appeals, especially for refund of the tax, were sent through the consul in Vancouver. Copies of the letters, bound in a book, were found in a building being demolished_ in Vancouver, The copies are in a form that pre-dates carbon paper. After each letter was mitten, it was sandwiched between tis- sue pages of the letter book, to- gether with a damp blotter, and placed under a press. Ink from the letter was transferred to the tissue sheets to make a copy. The original, unaffected by the copy process, was then mailed.
