The Yun-nan Grand Coordinator Min Hong-xue advised: "Troops have been employed in Yun-nan for five years and the major and minor military incidents have numbered in their thousands. Of the native officials, the four persons Sha Yuan, Long Zai-tian, Wang Xian-zu and Wu Bi-kui have realized the greatest achievements in these battles. Sha Yuan is the Chief of the An-nan Chief's Office. It is proposed that now this office be raised to a pacification commission. Long Zai-tian and Wang Xian-zu were originally members of ruling native-official families. It is proposed that two native police offices be established in their respective areas of Chang-ming Stockade and Long-ma-cao Stockade and that they both be issued with seals. Wu Bi-kui was the heir to the native county magistrate post in Yuan-mou, but inheritance has been stopped. It is proposed that he be given a hereditary post of native vice magistrate of Yuan-mou County." The ministry re-submitted the memorial and it was approved.
