As the Censor-in-chief Bao Xiang-xian, grand coordinator of Yun-nan, had arrived to take up his post, 70,000 native and Han troops were mobilized and massed, grain was widely collected and transported, necessary plans were made and, on the fixed date, the separate forces were advanced to attack Yuan-jiang. Considering his capture inevitable, the rebellious bandit Na Jian was greatly frightened and took poison and died. Xiang-xian ordered the Company Commander Wang Fu (Alt: Jiang Fu) to enter the city and pacify and instruct the people. The people all kowtowed and obeyed the orders. The person, A Zhuo by name, who had killed the native-official Prefect Na Xian, and the persons, Guang-long and Guang-se by name, who had killed the Administration Commissioner Xu Yue were captured and beheaded, and their heads were presented. Jian's son [Na] Shu returned Na-xin (Alt: Na-chai, Na-qi), Feng-luan and other villages and stockades they had occupied. Also, he handed over the seal of Zhen-yuan Prefecture which had been held as security, and offered 12 elephants as tribute to make up that which was owed over the years. Xiang-xian ordered the officials and people of the entire prefecture to propose someone of the Na family to be appointed. The people proposed Cong-ren, the grand nephew of the former native official Na Duan. Xiang-xian memorialized on the situation, noting: "It is requested that Shu be dismissed but pardoned the death sentence, that it be ordered that Cong-ren temporarily govern the people and that Wang Fu be promoted to battalion commander and remain there to supervise and observe them. Although the Administration Vice Commissioner Hao Wei-yue, the Assistant Administration Commissioner Wang Yang-hao, the Military Commissioners Chen Fan and He Feng and the Commander He Jing had earlier made mistakes, they subsequently realized achievements. It is thus requested that their salaries be restored." The Ministry of War re-submitted the memorial supporting Xiang-xian's proposals. The memorial was approved.
