CHINESE EXCLUSION ACT.

LIB

Mr. RALPH SMITH asked :

Liberal

1. Is the government aware of the following article, which appeared in the Nanaimo * Free Press ' some days ago ?

EXCLUSION ACT HAS FLAWS.


* The astute Chinaman seems to have discovered a way to get into Canada without paying the $500 tax. A considerable party passed through Sydney, N.S., in charge of a secret service man. They were on their way to St. John's Newfoundland. After a short stay there they can easily become British citizens, and can enter Canada free. A large number are expected by way of Vancouver during the summer.' f 2. Is the above article correct in saying that, through flaws in the Act, Chianmen get into Canada without paying the $500 tax ? 3. If Chinamen pass through Canada in bond, must not thq person in charge of them pay the tax ? 4. Can Chinamen, by becoming British citizens outside of Canada, enter free on that account, as the ' Free Press ' assumes ? 5. Has the government any knowledge of any number of Chinamen having arranged for coming via Vancouver to Canada during the coming summer ?
