This is a set of two surcharges reading Republic of China, Temporary Use plus the surcharge.

  This stamp was not known to Kerr but is listed in Chan, a good example of why you need both books. The feint overprint reads 中華民國 Chinese Republic.

Chan also shows another set for this town.

These stamps have been identified by using Volume II of the Stamp Catalogue of China by Shui-Hon Chan and the four booklet guide The Local Overprinted Stamps of Manchuria 1945-7 by Allen D Kerr (published 1978 and now out of print). Both works are essential for anyone delving seriously into this subject.
