A TRAGIC COMEDY.

JUNKERS' TRICK FAILS

(Received April 19, U -a.m.) LONDON, April 14

The "Daily. Chroniole's" Berlin correspondeat states that'the wSole of northern Bavaria, except Hof, is now in the hands ,of Hoffmann's Government, whose troops are standing on the Danube."

A tragic comedy was revealed at Munich, where the Government troops on Saturday brought about the fall of the Bavarian Soviet Republic. It transpires that the revolution was a, put-up job, engineered by the Bavarian and Prussian Conservatives, using sham Socialists and Communists as agents provocateurs. The plotters aimed at causing a maximum of confusion in Germany with a view to making the fulfilment of the peace conditions, especially financial, impossible. The primary motive inßavaxia was to separate from the rest of Germany, hoping for more favourable terms of peace. The hopeless" internal differences, coupled with Hoffmann's military coup shattered the scheme and plunged Bavaria in' civil war. ■ ■ "
