Wong entertained the notion that he could find political will to lift restrictions on citizenship for Chinese Americans. However, as both the Republican and Democratic Parties called for the prevention of immigration of low-cost Chinese labour, there was no political party which Wong could actually turn to. Therefore he attempted to establish a new American Liberal Party. He published his fourth and last newspaper as well, and he intended to establish a Confucian temple in Chicago. All of his endeavours might have something to do with his desire to preach Confucianism to American society.
