CHINESE REVOLT.

" WHITE WOLVES " DISPERSED.

4000 KILLED

(Per Press Association—Copyright.)

PEKIN, March 1

It is reported that sweeping victories have been won over the " White Wolves" in the province of Hunan. Aeroplanes were employed to locate the bands, which were then attacked

and dispersed. It is claimed that" 4000 bandits were killed.

White Wolf, the reputed ex-leader of the Rooming Party, which the central authority suppressed, has formed a new organisation, which, has absorbed the two former secret societies. It is known as "Iron and Blood." He is undaunted', and enjoys the active sympathy of a large section of the official merchant classes, from whom he gets intelligence as to the movements -of the Government troops. The society practically holds the provinces of Hunan,- Nganwhi, and Hoopi, and has been' so successful that the troops are commencing to regard the brigands as invincible. The Tutuh of Szechuan has been dismissed for secret complicity in the revolt. His battalions were .in constant communication with the brigands. While pretending to pursue them, they would arrive at a place, then fire a few shots in the air, and pick up booty and loot which the others had specially left for the purpose, subsequently reporting that they had met the robbers and inflicted a crushing defeat. PEKIN, March 2. A thousand "White Wolf" bandits, eluding the military cordon, marched westward, pillaging on the way. Apparently their intention is to regain their native hills.
