ON THE INVENTION AND USE OF FIRE-ARMS
AND GUNPOWDER IN CHINA, PRIOR TO

THE ARRIVAL OF EUROPEANS.

BY

G. SCHLEGEL.

We read in the History of the expedition sent by Kubilai Khan in 1293, to punish the King of Java, that, on the 15th of the third month, the army was divided into three bodies in order to attack Kalang; it was agreed that on the 19th they should meet at Daha ?) and commence the battle on hearing the sound of the p'au 2).

Groeneveldt dared not translate this character p'au by "cannon", although he wonders that the sound this p'au produced was strong enough to be audible to three bodies of troops (who were each at a great distance oue from the other). So he thought it was some kind of rocket. (Notes, p. 24, note 2). But, by this explication, the

1) Daha was situated in the actual residency of Kediri in East Java (Hageman, History of Java, Vol. II, p. 97).

2) 三月十五日分軍為三道。伐葛郎。期十 九日會答哈。聽嘶聲接戰。Vide 元史,Book 210 and Groeneveldt's “Notes on the Malayan Archipelago”, p. 24. This is a common chinese phrase. We read in the Hoa-tsien ki Chap. 61, that it was agreed that the besieged should make a sally with all their troops the next evening, in the second watch, as soon as they heard the sound of a gun to say I = W 號响鎮兵齊殺出。
