Belgrade, Servia, June 11, 5:43'
p. 111. King Alexnndcr, Queen
Uraga, the Inlter's sisters, hen
younger brother (Lieut. LtuuV
vilza), the Premier, three Ministers '
of the crown and a large number of
the Royal Guard were surprised in
the palace at midnight and all
quietly slain by Servian troops. A
few minutes sufficed to accomplish
1 a military revolution which wiped J
out the Obrenovitch dynasty. (
Just as the midnight bell wasj
striking, bringing in the anniver-1
sary of the day that Prince Michael
Obrenovitch was assassinated, a '
cannon shot was fired as a signal I
mid the troops entered the palace '
on their bloody errand. They also ,
surrounded th; ministerial resi-1
After the assassinations the troops
proclaimed the abrogated constitu
tion of April 6, 1901, as the organic
law of the land and elected the pre
tender, Prince Karageorgevitch,
King. The Prince has been living
temporarily in Geneva, Switzerland.
The tragedy is believed to be the
result of the recent suspension of
' the constitution by King Alexander
I and his refusal to abdicate.
Very little sorrow is shown any
1 where by the Servian populace.
I They consider that a mad and un
I just dynasty has met its just end.
The city is under the complete
I control of the soldiers but is com
I paratively quiet. .
Berlin, June . 11, 9:45 p.m.
Specials from Belgrade state that
the bodies of the King and Queen
were mutilated and the palace
, wrecked by dynamite.
J Belgrade, June 11. Parliament
has been summoned to meet on the
1 15th to confirm Prince Peter as
Belgrade, June 11. The prime
conspirators in the assassination of
the Royal family and the Ministers
were members of the new Pro
Russian Cabinet. Conspirators
within the palace aided the troops.
Colonel Naumovics burst the doors
of the Royal apartments and pre
sented a form of abdication to the
King containing the statement that,
in wedding Queen Draga, he had
married a public prostitute. Colo
tiel Naumovics told him that he
had degraded the throne and must
abdicate. The King's answer was
tojlraw a revolver and kill Nau
movics. The gathered officers,
members of the conspiracy, then
opened fire on the Royal couple,
who fell together, mortally wound
ed. The King lived for several
hours, but the Queen expired al
Paris, June 11. Queen Natalie,
the former sovereign of Servia and
mother of the dead King Alexander,
is prostrated by the news from Bel
grade. Kx-Queen Natalie, widow of the
late King Milan, has had a life
filled with sorrow. She was di
vorced from Mill 11 and when he
was forced to abdicate and lived
away from Servia a life of gam
bling and drunkenness she paid
his debts. The late Queen Draga
had been one of her ladies in wait
ing. She had been banished from
Servia by her dissolute King and
during her absence the poor, young
Alexander was trained to a life of
vice by his father. When she was
allowed to return to Servia Milan
had been banished. She found
herself in a palace where her own
son loved her lady-in-waiting more
than he did his mother. She did
a fatal thing. She expelled Draga.
She thus made an enemy and
when Draga completly 'won the
heart of the King and the marriage
took place poor Natalie had to
(again leave the country. She had
1 a large private fortune, and, al
though much of this went to pay
'Milan's debts, she has managed to
,be fairly comfortable since.
' Belgrade, Servia, June n. King
Peter Karageorgevitch is said to be
'on the way to take up the reins of
"government. He is one of the pre
tenders of that name who have
harassed the Servian throne for
years. He is a descendant of
"Black George," who led the Ser
vian peasants in their first revolt
against Turkish rule. His name is
a household word with the peas
antry throughout the kingdom.
