China Peiping Drug Dealer Executed

China's Anti-Narcotic Laws, sentencing convicted drug-dealers and addicts to death, came into force first on January 8, when a drug-dealer was executed in Peiping. Five more were shot there on January 13, and the authorities state that further executions are scheduled until the drug traffic is stamped out there. Huge crowds attend these executions, and beforehand vast amounts of drugs are burned. Apart from Peiping, the laws have failed to take effect in most districts. The drug-dealers to be executed is led out on to the execution ground at Peiping on Jan. 13, 1937, by soldiers, clad in black, with hands tied and legs manacled, and a placard stuck down his back which proclaims his crime.
