Chinese Discrimination: 0050.0450


            The Chinaman in British Columbia poses as a reformer.  At the outbreak of the present troubles in the Flowery Kingdom the almond-eyed Celestials declared themselves against the Boxers, and in proof of their sincerity they have raised a fund of $20,000 to be devoted to the enlistment of an army to protect the Chinese emperor.  I have not, however, heard of any of them volunteering for service in the new corps.
