(By Associated Press
MADRID, Dec. 12. - Military
revolt, long expected in Spainas
the result of political dissension,
broke out today at Jaca, near the
French frontier. At least 3,000
troops there rebelled, turned their
guns on the town and defied the
government of Premier Damaso
Tonight, with a strict censor-
ship imposed throughout the
country, no authentic account of
the revolt could be obtained here.
The premier, after an emergency
meeting of the cabinet, announced
that the situation was in hand and
that the rebels were fleeing' to the
French border, 30 miles away.
Franco Said to be Leader.
In the meantime, various uncon-
firmed rumors reaching Madrid
characterized the revolt as impor-
tant, and said Major Ramon Fran-
co, Spanish "ace" aviator who was
recently imprisoned for disobedi-
ence but escaped, was one of the

Troop Train Rushed.
Hardly had word of the revolt
been received at Madrid than every
military establishment in the north
was active. Troop trains were rush-
ed toward Jaca and a squadron of
fighting planes, under one of the
highest officers in the air service,
was ordered to the frontier.
Censorship was immediately es-
tablished and even the most harm-
less messages were subject to delay
or suppression.
Doumergue Threatens Removal
of Chamber Unless Agreement
is Reached Soon.
(By Associated Press)
PARIS, Dec. 12-President Gaston
Doumergue today took the big
stick of parliamentary dissolution
out of the glass case in which it has
been since 1877 and the warring
political parties of the chamber of
deputies, suddenly pacified, agreed
to grant at least a measure of sup-
port to a cabinet headed by Senator
Theodore Steeg..

As a result, M. Steeg told the
president tonight that he would
probably have his ministry ready
for presentation at the Elyses pal-
ace sometime tomorrow forenoon.
It was the eighth day of the
ministerial crisis brought about by
the overthrow of the Tardieu gov-
ernment in the Senate Dec. 4, and
the 15th cabinet resignation during
the seven years of M. Doumergue's
presidency. Until this afternoon it
appeared that no solution could be
found and parliamentarians were
seriously considering the possibility
of a dissolution and new elections.
It was here thatthe president, in
no way overstepping the limits of
the constitution, let it be conveyed
quietly to the leaders of the 13
groups in the chamber that unless
a cabinet were formed tonight he
might have to "take definite meas-
ures." This was immediately inter-

Troops payrolled the s t r e e t s,

the red terror three years ago that
caused the deat ; of thousands in.

a large portion of Canton.
With telegraph wires cut, no word
came from Shiuchow, where four
regiments were hurried yesterday
to stem the red horde. Anxiety was
heightened by reports of defections
of government troops, bought by
communist chieftans.
Widespread disorders on the large
island of Hainan, off southern
Kwangtung caused the government
to dispatch three gunboats with
marines to Hoihow.
