Pekin, March 1
It is reported that Jthe Government troops have obtained sweeping victories over the "White Wolves" in the province of Hoonan. An aeroplane was employed to looate the bands, which were attacked and dispersed. It is claimed that 4000 brigands were killed. Wbito Wolf, the reputed ex-leader of the Kuoming party, which the centra! authority suppressed, ha 3 formed a new organisation which absorbed the two former secret sooie.ties. 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 Hoonan,, Nganwhi, and Hoopi, and has been so successful that the troops are commencing to regard the brigands as invincible. Tirtuh Szechaun ha? been dismissed for secret complicity. His battalion were in constant communicition 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 1 ot which the others had specially left for the purpose, subsequently reporting that they had met the robbers and inflicted a crushing defeat.
