47. The races of men will be designated by the use of "w" for white, "r" for red, "b" for
black and "y" for yellow. The whites are, of course, the Caucasian race, the reds are the
American Indian, the blacks are the African or negro, and the yellows are the Mongolian
(Japanese and Chinese). But only pure whites will be classed as whites; the children begotten
of marriages between whites and any one of the, other races will be classed as red, black or
yellow, as the case may be, irrespective of the degree of colour.
53. Among whites the racial or tribal origin is traced through the father, as in English,
Scotch, Irish, Welsh, French, German, Italian, Scandinavian, etc. Care must be taken,
however, not to apply tile terms "American" or "Canadian" in a racial sense, as there are no
races of men so called. "Japanese", "Chinese" and "negro" are proper racial terms; but in the
case of Indians the names of their tribes should be given, as "Chippewa," "Cree," etc. Persons
of mixed white and red blood - commonly known as "breeds" - will be described by addition of
the initial letters "f.b." for French breed, "e.b." for English breed, "s.b." for Scotch breed
and "i.b." for Irish breed. For example: "Cree f.b." denotes that the person is racially a
mixture of Cree and French; and Chippewa s.b." denotes that the person is Chippewa and Scotch.
Other mixtures of Indians besides the four above specified are rare, and may be described by
the letters "o.b." for other breed. If several races are combined with the red, such as
English and Scotch, Irish and French, or any others, they should also be described by the
initials "e.b." A person whose father is, English, but whose mother is Scotch, Irish, French,
or any other race, will be ranked as English, and so with any others - the line of descent
being traced through the father in the white races.
