was beset tonight by an apparent
ly determined drive of the north
erners and fierce fighting between
contending ' factions behind his
own lines. . .. V 4
At least 100 Chinese were kil
led and 250 wounded in fighting
today which grew out of further
raids on the native suburbs of
Shanghai by General Chiang's
trops .which have been routing
out "reds" for the past two days
Pickets Shot Down ' '
This morning 20 plckets'of the
Shanghai general labor union also
were killed when they attacked
the headquarters of the Cantonese
troops in the Chapel district. The
attack came after a protest parade
through the district organized by
workers angered by yesterday's
raids on union headquarters.
In the shooting that took place.
some bullets entered the nearby
International settlement, causing
This afternoon's raids, which re
sulted in 100 dead, were conduc
tedas a part of a plan to rid the
Kuomlntang (Cantonese political
organization) of "communists."
Tomorrow, the political differ
ences between the moderate wing
of the Cantonese party headed by
General Chiang and the radical
wing which has its headquarters
at Hankow, are expected to come
to a head at the meeting of the
Kuomlntang, called by General
Chianjr at Hanking.
Will Be "Show Down"
Chiang's advisors at Shanghai ;
say this conference will be a final
show down, as to wether the na
tionalists will definitely go "red"
or will oust the radical civil lead
ers. It is at this projected conference
that General Chiang hopes to ral
ly sufficient strength to oust the
Hankow radicals from the party
and to expel from the Kuomlntang
other elements which are not sym
pathetic with the socalled moder
ate branch. .
Among the questions to be de
cided are wether the capital of the
Cantonese government shall -be
moved from Hankow to. Nanking
and whether Chiang Kai-Shek or
the radical leaders, of which
Michael Borodin, Cantonese ad
viser, ia one, shall dominate the
party or whether there will be a
definite split, with the communists
functioning from Hankow, and the
moderates from TCanklng.
Meanwhile the police received
reports that the general strike cal
led last night In" protest against
the Taids was growing more ex-
tensire and It was estimated to
nisrht that 100.000 workers were
