ONE FINED £10, THE OTHER £5 Two Chinese by the name of Leong Yuk Joe and Chung Joe were ordered to be deported by Mr. F. K. Hunt, S.M., this morning. Standing in the dock of the Police Court this morning, both these sorrylooking sons of the Flowery Land, through an interpreter, pleaded guilty when charged with remaining in New Zealand beyond the period for which their temporary permits entitled them. The Collector of Customs at Auckland, Mr. W. A. Penn, who prosecuted, stated that Leong Yuk Joe's permit expired in March of 1926, and Chung Joe's in October of last year. Both had overstayed their permits. Many other Chinese were giving much trouble in this way, and it had been suggested that terms of imprisonment should be imposed in addition to deportation. Great difficulty was experienced by the police iin tracing Chinese who overstayed their permits, said Constable Doel. At the present time 20 Chinese were being looked for. Mr. Wong Doo, a local Chinese resident, had purchased tickets for both men, who would leave for Australia to-morrow. Mr. Hunt fined Leong Yuk Joe £10, or one month's imprisonment, and Chung Joe £5, or one month in gaol. In addition both are to be deported from the Dominion.
