INVASION BRINGS PROTEST German 'Government Tells Paris ; French Military Operations Are • Without Justice or Reason— ,' . » Revolt Periled Republic. > Berlin,; April S.—A .gri>at military conspiracy, which was to have'been a Bavarian parallel to'.the recent Ber. lin revolution, has been, discovered in Munich, it was announced here. •Part.of the plan.was that General Ludendorff^be .made dictator over Bavaria and Doctor Helm of the Bavarian separatists a sort of civil and economic dictator. , : A'special session of the national assembly will be held Saturday/' The call for the session was issued following a conference between the heads of the political parties and tiie government. Germany 'Protests to France. The German charge d'affaires in Paris- was instructed to hand to•: the French government a note protesting against the French occupation of Frankfort and other territory on the right bank- of the Rhine. The note, after referring to the contents of the French note of April 5, notifying Germany that the occupation had been ordered, asserts that the occupation of the towns mentioned in the French communication occurred before the note was presented to the German government. "We must, in the name of Justice, reason ,and humanity," the Germiin note continues, ' "make the sharpest protest against the action of the French arm,y. It caimot possibly have been the intention of the. treaty of Versailles to prevent Germany from -•restoring order as quickly as possible .JAJhe. part of.;its -territory most •sej-l-- ously disturbed" <}y bands of robbers. Ssyr Revolt Periled Republic. . "The movement In the Ruhr region, If it had not been quickly opposed, would have shaken the republic to its' foundations both politically and eco-. ncmicdlly. The German government: would have acted inexcusably if it had waited longer in the optimistic hope', that the insurgent movement in the.Ruhr district would end without military intervention, and events'.'so • f ar ; have shown tuat-Jt was right::.::. ;• "Everywhere Hifit.;, thft. troops ar- •-. rived, the movement .quickly collapsed and.'jhe fears .expressed by the allies. that the very -entry would; make the disturbances worse and lead to the destruction of most, important industrial works has up to the present not : proved justified." I ; The note points out-that alleged Tl- ' olations'of the treaty must,-under the ; terms of -that Instrument, Be redressed by all the signatories on the allies' ' aide and not by a single, one, acting Independently. Says France Plays With Peace. A proclamation addressed by the German government to the inhabitants j of the towns occupied by the French was Issued. .It says: "Less than 14,000 troops have been collected in the Ruhr district, or almost the exact number permitted by the agreement with .the'. "entente. France has regarded it as reconcilable ! with the state of peace to occupy flour- i ishlng German .towns as a reprisal, j The 'world's peace has rie'ver been more monstrously played with than It has been just now by France. ."It Is that hard-hearted opponent trhlch alone is responsible for muk- Ing you the victim of this Shylock policy-. The imperial government will do everything it can to shorten your period of suffering. It will not let I Germany be shattered in this cunningly devised fashion.'.'
