There is no legal remedy or relief. Not the Law but its application is objectionable. Mr. Cohen's points have been vainly urged, over and over again. The Government has not 'judicial' but administrative discretion.

Being repugnant to the Magna Charta etc, I think under the Colonial Act of 1865, this Ordinance is invalid. Indians previously resident in Transvaal have a stronger claim. 'Discretion' means 'judicial discretion,' not arbitrary decision. I suggest a test case can be instituted.

The enormous import and still heavier demand show that Indian are indispensable to the colony, and they are unjustly black mailed. 3 pound tax on 'Freed' Indians has been imperative in driving them out. It is a shame that poll tax is imposed on people who are so very useful.
