Guns During the Attack
on the Reichstag Building
LONDON, Jan. 15.?German troops
were marched to Leipsic on Tuesday,
where they occupied the squares and
public buildings, according to a Ber?
lin dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph
Company to-day. Machine guns were
placed in commanding positions.
Fears are expressed in diplomatic
dispatches received here that the Ber?
lin imbroglio may spread throughout
Germany, and even to Vienna, through
the agency of the Communists, this
element using the recent Berlin dis- '
orders to inflame the masses by repre- |
senting those killed as martyrs to the
cause of the people.
Vienna, it is pointed out, would be j
likely to furnish fertile ground for the 1
agitators because of the great unrest
that already exists there.
The advices, in analyzing the up?
heaval in Berlin, point to its original
cause as the dissatisfaction of the In?
dependent Socalists over the failure of
the government to provide a method
for the establishment of the workmen's
councils called for by the constitution,
but give the immediate cause as in?
dignation at the attitude of the gov?
ernment toward strikers. This result?
ed in the organization of the great
demonstration in front or the Reichs?
Communists Seize Opportunity
The violence that followed, however, ,
is declared to have been due to Com
unist agents, who took advantage of ?
the assemblage, and working on mob :
psychology started the riot which re?
sulted so disastrously.
Disorderly scenes occurred again yes?
terday morning in the National A3sem- i
bly when Deputy Kanhler attempted to i
deliver a speech regretting the inci
dents of Tuesday, according to a Berlin
dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph I
Company. The Independents constantly .
interrupted Herr Kanhler.
An attempt had been made, Herr I
! Kanhler declared, to put tho Parlia-1
I ment, "elected by the most democratic !
method in the world," under the die- !
tatorship of the street agitator. If the
! people of Germany now realized how !
! disastrous the tyranny of minority rule
would be, he said, the bloodshed on the
. previous day?the first since the rati
? fication of the peace treaty?would not
have flowed in vain. The Independents
thereupon created a further disturb

Mob Leaders Save Themselves
Strong indignation is expressed in
S every branch of industry at th? un
? scrupulousness of the Independents,
| the dispatch adds, because the leaders
! hid behind machine guns while the
masses were driven forward to face i
the guns of the soldiers.
It is announced that the Berlin i*ov- ;
eroment will not permit, demonstra- !
