The Chinese Cared For
is believed in this city that reports were sent East to the effect that
the Chinese were being neglected
in the work of relief. If so, never was there fouler slander of an unfortunate
community. One of the first committees formed was for aid to Chinese under
chairmanship of the Rev. Dr. Filben of the Methodist Church, and one of
the most effective men in the ministry of any denomination on this Coast.
From the first the Chinese have had more assiduous attention than any other
people among us, for the reason that they were less able than others to
care for themselves. Chinatown was obliterated, but measures are already
in progress to restore it in another and better location, but where it
will not be a showplace in the middle of the city. In the meantime the
Chinese are being concentrated on the North Beach, from whence they can
be moved by water to their permanent location.
