李鐘玨:《新加坡風土記》18

72 華人來南洋做工者,抵坡,先投客館。客館者,奸商所設,即豬仔館也。客或自備舟資稍有旅費者,不敢虐視。若迫於生計,倉卒出洋,身無長物,一投客館,則此身非已有矣,固不必被拐而來始落陷阱也。在叻華官紳,屢欲清其源,而為英官所持,卒不得行。

73 中國犯罪之徒,皆以南洋為逋逃藪。地方官訪查得確,移文領事請提,皆以約章未載,為西人所持,此倒不通,關系政令非小。

74 生齒日繁,莠民難糅,結黨立會,爭立名目。西官迭次嚴禁,現存一會,名目有五,西人統謂之危險會。凡入會有冊,每年報護衛司。據報上年新入者六千三百五十人。其歷年入會總冊,共有五萬六千二百餘人,誠可雲危險矣。

75 坡中開埠伊始,西人政尚寬大,以廣招徠,閩廣人接踵而至,懋遷有無,日新月異。當道光末、咸豐初,已成巨埠,同治間稱極盛,踵事增華,至今日而發洩已極。近年商務雖未減色,然風氣之開,害多利少,奸偽變詐,情狀百出,殆亦運會將下之機也。蚩蚩者氓,方謂蒸蒸日上,不知保泰持盈,微識者代用隱憂。
