This article examines the local development of the Sarekat Islam movement in Surakarta, and the influence of local figures on the socioeconomic dynamics of that community, in the period 1912–1915. This occurred in the context of the economic conflict between the Sarekat Islam and the Tionghoa group in Surakarta. The dominant figures among the Surakarta Chinese at that time were Sie Dhian Ho, Be Siauw Tjong, and Bwe Kwat Koen, whereas the Be Tjiong Hwee association managed to embrace the Chinese community as a whole. The particular purpose of this article is to consider the impact of the establishment of Sarekat Islam Surakarta on politics, society, and the economy and describe the influence of local leaders who would later make many changes in Surakarta in 1912--1915. The historical method employed in this study encompasses heuristics, criticism, and interpretative historiography. The heuristic step involved the use of primary sources, such as archives and newspapers from the same era. These consisted of the Bataviasche Nieuwsblad, Darmo Kondo, Pantjaran Warta Sarotomo, and Taman Pewarta newspapers and published Dutch government archives. Besides relying on primary sources, this article also refers to relevant secondary sources, such as journal articles and books. Then, source criticism is undertaken on the collected data to find objective truths, and the data are analyzed and presented in a descriptive form.
