This discovery also drew many immigrants to this foreign land with the same dream in mind. A large majority of these newcomers were from China. China had suffered a series of blows to its economy from the 1830s onward. War, high taxes and rebellions left little stability in the homeland. Thus, many Chinese peasants with little or no education left their families with the aspira- tion of finding enough gold to support their loved ones back home. The rate for an average Southern Chinese laborer was $3 a month, but working on the California railroad would pay $30 a month, which could purchase a fine piece of land back in China. These hopeful men were able to arrange passage to America by dealing with emi- gration brokers, or working as laborers for free under a credit ticket system. The Chinese were original- ly welcome additions to the future state of California, though this was mostly due to the lower wages and longer hours the Chinese worked in comparison to other employ- ees. But soon tides changed and created an anti-Chinese environment. By May 1852, See Cemetery, page 15B Diane Kohler at the grave of Gee Ching, an early caretaker of the Chinese cemetery. Kohler has piovided fencing, replace- ment headstones and even post-vandalism reburial at the cemetery. Photo courtesy Plumas County Museum Prepare your Home & Garden for fall!
