Judge Hoffman

This article breaks down the decision of Judge Hoffman in the US Federal District Court. The decision involves letting in more Chinese Laborers through a loop hole in the restriction act due to a treaty with the Chinese. This loophole is newsworthy due to it's allotment of land to Chinese immigrants upon their arrival. This gives many more Chinese laborers the ability to move freely between the United States and China. This was not a popular decision in the eyes of this newspaper, as it reflects the sentiments of Sacramento in the era of exclusion.
