SHOOTING THE HOSTAGES.

(Received. May 13, 10 a.m.) LONDON, May 7

The "Daily Chronicle's" Berlin correspondent writes:—The re-taking of Munich iiivolved 400 deaths and 1000 wounded. Material damage totalled £15,000,000 (? marks). Five thousand people were arrested, including Eisner's widow, who is charged with harbouring and assisting the Red leaders. It is confirmed that the 24 hostages shot by the Communists, include Prince Thurn and Taxis, and Countess Westarp. They were given a few minutes to write farewell letters, and were then taken to the courtyard, placed in a row close to a firing party of 200 hundred soldiers. Dum-dum'bullets were used, and the bodies were frightfully mutilated.
