MARSHAL DECLARED IN LEAGUE FOR COUNTER
REVOLUTION, WHICH THE GOVERNMENT
IS POWERLESS TO RESIST
(By Atsocinted Press).
PARIS, Field Mar.shal von Hindenburg has telegraphed
Berlin government, advising it of his intention to form a
new front six miles behind the neutral zone fixed by the
armistice, according to a Zurich dispatch. The govern
ment has asked Hindenburg for an explanation of the
movement, but has received no reply.
Two regiments of the active- army may be sent to Frank
fort on the Main at an early date, it is reported.
Reports here affirm the minor that Major General
Scheush, the Prussian war minister, von Hindenburg, and
General Lcquis, who commands the active troops in Ber
lin, are behind a counter revolutionary movement now un
der way. A correspondent declares that the existing gov
ernment is manifestly in capable of preventing the realiza
tion of their scheme.
LONDON, Dec. 20.- "A People's League" has been or
ganized in Berlin, says a Copenhagen dispatch. The
league committee includes Prince Maximilian, Hugo
Hassc, Count von Bernstorir and Mathins Arzboiger.
