TROOPS KILL ROSA LUXEMBURGI,
VIRILE WRITER FOR
RADICALS
(By Associated Press)
Berlin, Jan. 16 (delayed).-Dr. Karl '
Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg
have been killed.
Karl Paul August Friedrich Lieb-
knecht, who was shot and killed in
Berlin while trying to escape, was
born at Leipsic on Aug. 13, 1871. Aft-
er being graduated from the Univer-
sity of Leipsic he entered politics as
a Socialist. He was a radical oppo-
nent of the militarist policies of Ger-
amany ,from the first of his political
career and this attitude brought
about his trial on a charge of high
treason in 1907, following the appea-r-
ance of an anti-military pamphlet
written by him. The charge of high
treason was not proved, but he was
convicted on a less serious count and
sent to prison for 18 months.
Liebknecht Visited U. S. in 1910
Dr. Liebknecht visited America in
1910 and lectured in New York.
In 1912 he was elected to the Ger-
man Reichstag fromPotsdam and the
next year caused a furore in Ger-
many by bringing charges against I
the Krupps, saying that that organi-
zation was . inspiring war spirit
against the French. He continued
his attacks and mentioned Emperor
William and the Crown Prince as
being involved in the alleged cn-
spiracy centering around the Krupps.
As a result of his revelations several
army officers were tried for accept-
ing bribesfrom Krupps. They were
convicted, but received light sen-
tences. 4
Fought on Russian Front
When the great war broke out Dr.
Liebknecht refused to do military
duty and it was rumored that he had
been executed. This report was un-
true ,and he was later found in the
ranks of an engineer battalion on
the Russian front, where, in Decem-
ber, 1915, he was seriously injured,
by a falling tree.
Although in the German army, he
'did not cease his attacks against the,
military system, and several times he
was reported to be involved in bit-
ter controversies with the Junker
leaders of Germany. This struggle
went on until May 1, 1916, when he
was arrested for making an incen-
diary address at a May Day demon-
stration in Berlin. After trial he
was sentenced to prison for 30
months. From this sentence he ap-
pealed, and on re-trial wts sentenced
to prison for four years and one
month. During his imprisonment he
was elected to the Reichstag from
Spandau.
After being inprison two years and
two months, he was relased on Oct.
24, 1918. In the, political cataclysm
that developed in Germany early in
November, resulting in the abdication
of Emperor William, his 'fiight and
the establishment of a Socialist gov-
ernment, Liebknecht played a prom-
inent part.
Became Red Chief
When the Ebert government had
been in existence only a few days Dr.
Liebknecht became leader of a Radi-
cal Socialist faction known as the
Spartacus element. Rumo~s came to
'the world that a terrorist revolution
was imminent and this developed late
in December.
Dr. Liebknecht's arrest followed. It
was announced on Wednesday that he
was quartered in the Hotel Eden, a

Rosa Luxemburg was former prin-
cipal editor of the Vorwaerts, the
organ of the GermaniSocialists. She
often came into conflict with the au-
thorities and twice underwent im-
prisonment for freely expressing her
views on subjects connected with
the government.
Luxeaiurg Virile Writer
She was consistently opposed to
the war and at one time her writings
brought about criminal proceedings
against leaders of the Socialist par-
ty. When the revolution broke out
in Berlin early in November she was
reputed to be the leader of the most
violent group of Socialists. Later she
seconded Dr. Liebknecht in his efforts
to organize the Spartacus element, al-
though she strenuously opposed Dr.
Liebknecht's *proposal that elections
for the National Assembly be held at
once.
When the Spartacus uprising grew
to open rebellion against the Ebert
government, she played an important
part in urging the revolutionists to
attack the government troops. When
it was evident that the cause, at least
for the time being, was lost, she was
reported to have left Berlin. Her ar-
rest was reported on Tuesday.

itorial and business staffs of The
