Interesting article from 1911.

The Eureka Sentinel • Eureka, Nevada • 02 Sep 1911, Sat • Page 1

Recently a Chinaman went from Reno to the new camp of Terril, near Fallon, and established himself in a restaurant where he was employed as a cook. The miners, after meeting, decided that no Japanese or Chinese should be allowed in the camp, and after coming to this decision they forced the Chinaman to leave, and he came to Fallon. They did not use violence toward him. The Chinaman made no resistance, but it is said that certain residents of Terrill have offered him protection, and that he intends to return and to test the proposition of whether or not a Chinaman has a right to live in a Nevada mining camp
