"A party of officers proceeded to tho

THE NHW KING.
Prince Toter Kiirageorgevitcli. the new
King, was a member of tho fashionable
diplomatic set Of Paris and Included
among his uequalnauecs a number of
Americans. Ho Is described as having
an agreeable personality, Is about fifty
years of ago, has been a frequenter of
tho leading clubs and hotels and was a well
known figuro nt the races und sports. Ho
was educated at the St. Cyr Military Col
lego nnd enternd the French army in
1ST0. with tho rank of captain. A brother,
Prince Arsone, is now In Paris.
Tlio latter received a dispatch to-day
advising him that his brother had been
proclaimed King. Prince Arsene said ho
probably would Join his brother nnd toko
part In the events connected with his
assuming tho sovereignly of Servia.
Dr. Pe.terovilch, of the Servimi lega?
tion, described tho now King ns a stu?
dent of affairs of stale, us being Intense?

and ns an admirer of Russia. Tho newly
proclaimed King, Dr. Pet erovi tch, added
is sending his son to St. Petersburg,
whoro ho will bo educated at tho ex?
penso of tho Imperial court of Russin.
Politicians had frequently sought to
Induce the new King to attempt to tnko
the throne of Servia, but ho always re?
plied that ho would not permit a dynastic
contest to provoke a cjvll convulsion and
ho preferred to await tho result nf the
popular weariness resulting from tho old

coming Queen she made herself first
feared and then hated. Bhe brutally re?
venged herself for the slightest offenses
nnd pitilessly crushed high or low who
had the mlsfortuno to displease her.
The late King was only a tool In tho
hands of this bold, dominating woman.
He was so weak minded that a doctor
who attended him at Biarritz declared
that If he had been a Frenchman be

unfit for military service
Prince Bodijar added:
"The youthful sovereign was the victim

LONDON. June 12.?The Servian min?

terday declared that he had nevor Been
such clouds and such rain In bis lite.
Worse still, fitful gleame oY lightning
flashed a greonlsh light, which served
much to complete the terror. The light?
ning struck a tree in the yard of thla
gontleman and knocked his berso sense?
Yesterday the downpour was repeated,
but earlier in tho day and minus the
lightning and the thunder. About 3:3C
o'clock In the afternoon solid straight
streams of water, or so they appoared,
began to pour down. So thick wero they
packed together that nt times the vision
waa all but completely obscured. Sudden
gusts of wind bent the trees and sent
spiral sheets of water flying through the
air. It looked for the nonce a* IX ?
genuine wild western flood would ensue.
By 4:30 o'clock the hardest of tho
hard rain.was done, and nearly an Inch
had fallen. It came down more or less
heavily for some time aftor that, and
then stopped* and tho weather man pre?
dicted fair weather for to-day. A de?
cided ' drop In the temperature hart
changed tho atmosphere from a sultri?
ness nearly stifling to a delightful and
refreshing cool. The weather bureau
submitted its report, and showed that
during the twenty-four hours preceding
over two inches of rain luid fallen here.
Anxious eyes wore kopt on the river,
but tho rise hero was not sufficient to
warrant any apprehension. The storm
appeared local, or, at least, below Rich?
mond, where it could not affect the rlvor
at this point. Between Koysvtlle and
Drake's Branch there occurred the hard?
est nain In many years. Columbia kept
calm and collected, and In view of this
fnct there is no good reason to oxpect
flood water. No damage to railway
tracks, except In tho case of the South?
ern, already referred to, was reported.
TUB LOCOMOTIVE WORKS.
Throughout Henrlco, however, where
the precipitation was extremely hea-vy,
creeks shot up with a bound. Several
brldgos wero washed away. The one
which conned s Barton Heights with tho
Second Street rnad was turned over.
Others on the boulevard also suffered,
and the big now culvert there waa
washed ? way.
About ? o'clock in the afternoon the
water of Shockoe Creek, which had been
steadily advancing for the past hour,
began to creep Into the Locomotive
Works nt the foot of Seventh Btreet.
Slowly, but relentlessly, it worked Ita
way into the ' erecting shop, the tank
corner, the boiler shop and tho carpenter
shop. The men in the laat named de?
partment wero to leave at B:30 o'clock In
any event, and they lost but a half hour.
But in the others, which were to continue
Straight through the night, It was dif?
ferent. ' A foot of wator covered every?
thing less than a. foot high, and In the
blacksmith room and In the forges the
fires were extinguished. The men in the
flooded departments had to cover their
tools and chests and fly. Some of them
were caught Inside, and had to wade out.
It was Impossible during tho night to test
more than ono of the several bpllars.
None of the shops affected by the water
could do business. The machine shop
was the only one running last night.
Gangs of negroes were put to work
sweeping an?i bailing out the water, and
trendies hod to be dug.
Considerable damage was done to the
power-house. About twenty-five feet of
tho wall, ten feet high, has been washed
away and a part of the embankment
around It has caved in. Tho switch-board
was In g^eat danger of falling but waa
Jacked up and held secure during the
night. The entire damugo to the power?
house and the other departments will
probably amount to two or three thou?
About noon yesterday, six of the men,
all white, at tho dinnor hour, were lean?
ing on the rail over Shockoe Creek, when
the ground under them caved In, precipi?
tating them and the rail into the water.
The dirt had been washed out by the
high water of the night previous. For?
tunately at this time the creek was in
a reasonable condition and the men got
out without much trouble. If they had
fallen In a few hours later, when the
atream was rushing by with a whirl,
they would probably have been drowned.
Further Into Richmond the creek did
not do much damage. The widening of
tho outlet at the rlvor prevents the water
from banking up so suddenly na It used
io do when It flooded many of the cel?
lars along Its route. Still, according to
some of* tho property-holders along the
route tho danger is yet groat. Fiirthev
enlargement back from the river seems
to be nocessary. Prom four to six hun?
dred thousand pounds of salt moat ara
stoiod in the collars of Armour & Co.,
?nid would bo completely ruined by a
choking up at tho arches.
Ab It Is tlie water banked up tei some
extent yesterday. It wan reported that
the bridge at Fifteenth and Itigli Streets
had been overturned and that a lot of
timber had been washed away. In Hen?
rlco many lu-ldgea wero washed away.
