CANADIAN IMMIGRATION LAWS.
Ottawa, May 28 The Immigration Department intends enforcing the Order in-Council prohibiting Asiatics, artisan or otherwise, entering the Dominion daring the next six months. The Order-in' Council is to prevent the admission of the shipload of, Hindus seeking entry at Vancouver.
Gurdit Singh, a wealthy Hindu aboard the YamatHga Maru, was refused permission to land, and is therefore unable to carry his case to the Dominion courts.
Extensively signed protests are reaching the Governor against admitting the Hindus. It is pointed out that if the present arrivals aie admitted, the Canadian immigration laws will be a farce, and Canada will remain open to the whole population of India if they wished to enter.
