end of trouble In their efforts to
check the onslaughts of De Tham,
a notcrious outlaw, and his followers.
From private advices the government
is informed that for hurmantaian
and political reasons the offcials are
uable to adopt the necessary sharp
and ruthlees measures which the
forays against villages favoring
French rule seem to demand.
De Tham's fanatical followers have
now spread the report that he Is the
diinely appointed deliverer of the
Chinese from the French. His men
are armed with rifles while the na

sharpened sticks. Chinese whom are
favorable to the French. when caught
by the outlaws, are ca.'ried to the
forest, tied to trees and there left
to die, after their tongues heve been
De Tham appears to be guarded by
a special providence. He has never
been captured, although at times he
could touch the French soldiers as
they pased his hiding place. On one
occasion they pressed so close that
