Wong’s decade-long dream of establishing a Chinese theater in New York finally came to fruition in 1893, yet it ceased to exist a few years later. A youngster named Wong Aloy was brutally beaten by two Moy clan members in the numerous conflicts between the Wong and Moy clans, and so Wong left for Chicago to seek justice for this clansman. Later, a second incarnation of the Chinese American was published, and it was called the Illustrated Chinese Weekly News, which was far more political than its predecessors in terms of content. In 1893, Wong also got a close-up look at Chinese participation in Chicago’s World Columbian Exposition.
