(From an occasional correspondent of The Tribune.) Hankow, Jan. M (Special).— As the .winter ad vances the poorer classes In many parts of tho empire Jire finding It more and more difficult to exist. Floods and poor crops and very high ex change rates have been the causes of much misery and suffering, and these in turn % have doubtless been a partial cause of the rebellion which occurred In Moo-Nan and Western Kiang-Se about a month ago, and Is still troubling th« officials. Thin revolution has to some extent scared the mandarine, and strong measures of suppression and repression have been adopted. There have been many executions, and probably a large number of entirely Innocent persons have lost their heads. Professional informers have made accusations by the wholesale, and an accused man stood little chance of saving his life _ unless he was well known or had influential friends among the officials Those in charge of hunting down revolutionists have bee i anxious to make a good record, both to be rewarded officially for their zeal and also to have a good excuse, for increasing their budget of expense and necessary allowance from Peking. Those men who have ben students abroad, espe cially In Japan, have been generally suspected, and the slightest charge made against them meant their probable death. One student in Chang-Sha, a Christian, who had been in Japan and recently returned, was mistaken for his brother. who*was on the list of those suspected. Before the young man could get proper persons to prove his Identity and Rood conduct he was executed without trial or even definite accusations. There was no accusation made to him personally, and he was taken to tho execution ground on stories which were en tirely false. In Woo-Chang in the last week on. of the Boone College instructors was suspected and charged with treasonable actions. He fled before tho officials could take him. A constant guard of soldiers about the liege compound made so much excitement stmons the parents of the students that the Bins school had to be temporarily closed. Many arrests have been made in Hankow, Mid several houses supposed to be meeting places and clubs of the revolutionary parly have been raided and closed. A s.i'.tni of native soldiers parade the streets of the na'.lve city at night, something al most unknown since the time of the Talplng re bellion, except during; the Boxer trouble of 1900. Many of the officials themselves are known to be in sympathy with the revolutionary movement, but they are of different Ideas as to the proper method of remedying existing conditions, and do not sufficiently agree to be able to act together. Furthermore, there are so many spies among all classes that it la dangerous at this time to show Inclination toward the revolutionary views. At a recent dinner it the Astor House, given by ■.foreigner to a number of Chinese gentlemen, the Chinese refused to drink the toast of "The Empe ror, long may he live." and placed their glasses on the table with a hang. Many of the educated classes in Central ma Southern China are anti dynastlc. If indications count for anything the officials are thoroughly aroused to the fact of a condition of danger which might become *erlous at any time. Given a strong leader, v. do may appear at any mo ment, nobody could predict what might happen. There are so many of the Chinese people, and they at times become so frenzied and united, that with a capable leader It would take a better army than there Is In China to-day to stop the mass which might set Into motion. The movement seems antl-dynatitic thoroughly and not antl-fureign. It is largely due to the Influence of leaders who have been some years in Japan. Some of the chiefs of the supposed revolutionists arrested In Hankow were dressed In Japan* style. The Japanese are intensely anti-foreign SO far as business at home, manufacturing and tra.ia abroad are concerned, and should a successful revolution take place in China, with leaders who were schooled in Japan, an anti-foreign commer cial movement of great force might be expected.
