During two months after the signing of the Chinese Exclusion Act,the Chinese consulate in San Francisco,under the leadership of its consul general,Huang Zunxian,has tried to protect its people by legal action. Consul Fred Bee rescued the suspected Chinese prostitutes from the San Francisco County Jail and successfully closed the case arising from the arrival of the Glamis Castle. As to the case of the Altonower,Huang Zunxian and Fred Bee sought to ease the suffering of the passengers by calling for a hospital to be set up and the passengers on board to be quarantined. In dealing with the Martinez Riot,an official letter from Huang and Bee became the basis for the protests of Chinese Legation in Washington D.C. to the U. S. Secretary of State Frederick Freylinghuysen.
