The Chinese Pirates are a treacherous and unscrupulous race infesting the southern coast of China. Living in caves near the shore they await a passing or disabled vessel, and when assured of its defenceless character by their sentinels, they advance from their hidden harbours and endeavour to overcome their prey. Their calling makes them careless of their lives and they are dangerous enemies if allowed to come to close quarters.
