Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1919, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME XII. LK AI.BEUTA, WEDNKSDAY, JAXl'AUY 13. 19UI NCMBUR 29 GREEK CLAIMS-BERLIN NOW Lord Robert Cecil Says Lini- ilalion of Armaments Will Necessarily Result From Conference. PARIS, Jan. Koucrt Cecil, small bands of the fol- lowers of Dr, Karl Uebknecht to revive the reign cf terror. They are insignificant, however, com- pared with what has passcd. A few Spartacans tried to re- capture the Charlottenhurg police headquarters the night after they were taken by government troops. Dr. Uiebknecht's sister was ar- rested today and several hundred rebels are Locked up? awaiting trial, which, inasmuch as martial law was not proclaimed, must be LeTt to the regular courts, Losses inflicted on each side in the past v.-eek are as yet estimated only roughly, hut it is believed that they will greatly exceed 200 dead snd 1000 woundf.d. The over- whelming of these are Bolsheviki. Reinstatement and arming of the police gives the government a new force of trained men who know the criminal world and whose absence during the first days of the revolution gave the disorderly clement q free hand. HUGE PROPERTY LOSSES Property during the week of terror amount (o tens of mil- lions of marks, in addition to cam- age to "newspaper plants and gov- ernment, buildings. Merchant losses through looting are very high, one youth being captured with marks' worth of jewels which he ;had stolen. some slreets near the police headquar- ters nearJy every story was loot- ed, Bolshevist troops holding the Silesian station having stolen so much butter that they used it to grease their guns and boots. The centre of the city has been quiet all day today; Late this evening a few shots were heard in different parts of the town, be- ing fired by snipers and footers. Merchants' shops along Unter den Linden were open for business as usual. ENERGETIC MEASURES The government has no inten. tion of slackening its elforts against the Spartacans, the Abend Zcitung says it learns from best authority. Energetic measure's are being taken against the lead- ers of the movement. It is re- ported that documents found by the loyal troops show that the SpDrtacan uprising, was inspired from Moscow meeting will be continued today.
