Migrants from China.
Migrants from China. Eighteen Chinese were included in the passenger list of the Mai a ma, which arrived at Auck- yesterday from Sydney. It was a chattering group, which included well-dressed Chinese ranging from the. type that irons collars to the market gardeners who wear a shirt open at the neck and regard a tie as a superfluity. Fullmoon faces were wreathed in smiles as Auckland was contemplated from the ship's rail. They were not communicative. "Blin here aflore," said one member of the party. His destination was Mangere.
