. ' London. Aug. . A reliable source
la authority for tha statement- that tha
colonial office, after many delays, has
at last received full reports of tha ris
ing la disaffected Bengal districts. It
appears that tha serious nature of the
situation ' Is hardly : realised la other
' parts of India or at home. Whereas a
few years ago such discontent as ax-
Istad was confined to a few pleaders and
clerks, the disaffection has now spread
not only among the landlords and Ben
gal aristocracy, hut among tha peasants
and coolies. . . -
All reports agree that tha disaffec
tion was tha result -of a campaign of
tuition directed from Calcutta, tha
a ancles employed being not only the
lreea and the platform, but the active
' organisation known aa National Volun-

Hundreds of tales of lawlessness and
Suppression on the part of tha national
volunteers come from every dletrlot The
' rural police are too weak, and. In soma
cases, too dlnsffeoted themselves to
take actios. Several Undholdera have
actually usurped executive and admlnla-
. tratlva powers, flogging and Imprison
ing their tenants, In the Barlsal dis
trict it Is a well-known fact that com
mittees of publls safety, after the type
t the French revolution have been
formed. .Jaese committees hold Judi

punish offenders. " ' ' t
The government has exhausted Its re

pouted la email batches In the larser

they are unable to prevent the persecu

The worat feature of the situation,
however. Is the growing number of as
saults upon Europeans. Recently It as
saults tiave taken place on the Aaaam
Bengal railway alone. One guard had
hia skull fractured, another had an eye
put out. The first and second-class car
riages, containing European passengers,
are nightly pelted with stones. To add
to tha general uneasiness, a European
police Inspector, named Crabbe, waa
murdered while attempting to arrest
some train thieves at Chandpur.
Moreover, the impression la gaining

also making strict Inquiries, and have
already discovered two stores of arms-
one in a oasaar, almost witnin a stone's

There Is a growing feeling among the
