How John may dodge the exclusion act

Pughe, J. S. (John S.), 1870-1909
Uncle Sam's boot kicks a Chinese immigrant off a dock as part of an anti-Chinese immigration campaign. Vignettes show how the Chinese can possibly emigrate to the United States, by coming as "a cup-challenger" in yacht races, "as an industrious anarchist," or "disguised as an humble Irishman," or "as an English wife-hunter" with "pedigree" in his pocket, or wielding knife and handgun, as a mean-looking "peaceful, law-abiding Sicilian."
