"For years and years California’s position on the Chinese question has been conspicuously contemptible. We have been imploring Congress to save us from ourselves—to avert from our undeserving heads the consequences of our own selfishness. We have prayed that the Chinese might be kept away from us, in order that we might not hurt ourselves by employing them. Within the past fifteen years I have myself repeatedly submitted, with all due deference, that we need not employ them nor purchase of them if we did not wish, and that we merited no outside assistance so long as we did. Others spoke to the same effect, but we were a feeble and unheeded few. 
       "All eyes were turned to Washington, all hopes were centered in Congress. It is not surprising that the relief we got was grudgingly given, for our sincerity was open to disproof. If there had been no Congress to help us we should long ago have helped ourselves. But for our own apathy and greed there would not be today enough Chinamen in California to carry a lightweight Polish refugee into the Board of Education."
