The Rebellion in Peru In a letter which appears on

another page our Corre- spondent in Peru Speaks of a revolt which was quickly suppressed. Since he wrote there has been further trouble, especially near Cuzco in the South, where the rebels had for a time some success. Their efforts have now been brought to an end by the presence of Govern- ment troops, and the situation is again in hand. It is reported, however, that the population is extremely restive under the regime of martial law and censorship which is still in force. Apparently there were some disturbances at the landing of Colonel Sanchez Cerro at Lima, and more are to be expected if the present restrictions cannot be relaxed before the next elections.
