bandits.  Dr Herbert Müller is a representative of Deutsches Nachrichtenburo, the German news agency. (Dr Müller’s principal profession was dealing with curios.  He spoke excellent Chinese and was apparently accustomed with dealing with the Chinese on money matters).  


The following day the news hit the national newspapers and it was revealed that the men had been captured on their way back to Kalgan from Dolonor at a place called Pao Ch'ang.  The Russian chauffeur who had been captured with them had been sent back with a ransom demand for the sum of £8,000 and 200 Mauser rifles.  Apparently the bandits held up the vehicle at a range of 40 yards with rifles and a machine gun, two shots of which hit the engine.  They then looted it and carried off the two passengers.  The bandits were dressed in uniforms of the Peace Preservation Corps [local police].
