President Will See That Courtesy is

Washington, June 27.— By direction
of President Roosevelt action has been
taken by the administration which not
only facilitates the landing in this
country of Chinese of the exempt class,
but will also eliminate from the Immi
gration bureau such administrative
features as have been the subject of
criticism by Chinese.
It is the de
clared intention of the president to see
that Chinese merchants, travelers, stu
dents and others of the exempt classes
shall have the same courtesy shown
them by officers of the Immigration bu
reau as is accorded to citizens of the
most favored nations.
Representations have been made to
the president that in view of alleged
harsh treatment accorded to many
Chinese seeking a landing in the
United States, the commercial guilds of
China have determined to institute a
boycott on American manufacturers.
The representations, backed by ths> au

and commercial bodies throughout the
country, induced the president to make

of, if they were found to exist. The
subject was discussed thoroughly with

vision of the Immigration bureau.
As the result of the inquiry orders
haveb een issued to the diplomatic and
consular representatives of the United
States in China by the president him
self that they must look closely to the
performance of their duties under the
exclusion law and see to it that mem
bers of the exempt classes coming to
this country are provided with proper
certificates. These certificates will be
accepted at any port of the United
States and will guarantee the bearer
