Social Notes. AUSTRALIAN DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser and Diamond Creek Valley Advocate — 10 August 1917
Social Notes. (BY THELMA.) AUSTRALIAN DEMOCRACY. The discovery of gold was the cause of a large influx of Chinese to our shores, and this fact drew attention to the danger that menaced Australia, considering that her shores lay within a few days' steaming of the oriental crowded areas. In t853 there were about 2ooo Chinese on our goldfields ; but, five years later, that number had increased to 33,000. There was a marked antipathy between-the Euro pean miners and the Asiatics, chiefly from the. labor side of the question; but there were others who, on broader grounds, objected to what they termed the "yellow peril" from the fact that it was undesirable to permit an admixture of races in a new country. As a result an act was passed in r855 restricting Chinese imnigration in Victoria. This act laid down that there was to be a poll tax of £to on each Chinese immigrant, and strictly forbade ships to carry more than one Chinese passenger for every ro tons of shipping capacity. In 1859 mor...
