Part they Played in the Disturbances

Detectives are searching everywhere in Indo-China for the mistress of Nguyen-thai-Hoc, – a former elementary school teacher named Thi-Giang, – who is stated to have played a very important part in preparing the ground for the recent mutiny at Yen-Bay and for the native uprisings.

Nguyen-thai-Hoc was the ringleader of the rebels and, according to statements made by some of his lieutenants now in custody, his mistress Thi-Giang had charge of the plans for recruiting young women and girls to help the cause of the “revolution”.

These girls and women actually rendered a variety of most useful services to the rebels. They circulated subscription lists and collected considerable sums of money; they use their influence in persuading their men-folk to throw in their lot with the rebels and they were charged with many delicate missions which could not very well, or safely, have been entrusted to men.
