Scope and content

Sidney and Islands Review, “Editorial Notes”, 16 May 1913, Page 4.

“We have no doubt that we shall presently see much improvement in passenger transportation facilities to Victoria. One of the most urgently required betterments is more accommodation for the smoking class of travellers, and these are not few. At present a man wishing to smoke has to go into a car which is invariably crowded with Chinese, Hindoos and our own local Siwashes. The company of some of these people is not pleasant and frequently deters men from enjoying the comfort to which common usage throughout the world entitles them. If an example of what is done in other places is needed it is only necessary to look at the Southern States of America where special cars are provided for the use of the coloured people. The matter of class does not enter into this question it is simply a desire of the cleanly to be protected against close companionship with the uncleanly.”
