London, April 15. The coup d'etat of
the youthful king of ServiA yesterday was
a performance that might make a story in
a modern Arabian Xights. There was a
secret plot, a quiet occupation of al! points
of vantage by the friends of the head plot

cf the fact he -announced at the denoue

and proposed to run the Servian govern
Onile a Ltramatic Affair.
The young kinc will not be 17 until next
August, while the law of Servia fixes
his majority at 18. The persons arrested
are the regents, M. Ristics and General
Markovitch and the members of the min
istry. Everything was ready; a proclama
tions was prepared declaring that the
regents had placed the constitution in
Jeopardy, dissolving the skuptchina, and
ordering new elections; also declaring that
the king would see that the rights of citi
zens were respected. The hour of the
coup was midnight and everything con
nected with it was dramatic to a degree.
Tha Populace Was Pleased.
The populace and the army, it seems, are
willin'. Indeed without the friendship of
the latter Alexander could not have suc

with loud acclaim

in Europe is a

concern among the cabinets. If a revolu

a pretext she has looked for aud hoped for
to establish herself in Servia. Then the
dogs of war would be loosened, and all Eu
rope would be involved.
Very Young for Hi Responsibilities.
It is difiicr't to prophesy the future of
the king. That he has courage and deter
mination has been sufficiently demon
strated by t'.e events of Thursday night
unless it should turn out that he was sim
ply a tool in older hands but that a
youth of 17 should possess the wisdom,
firmness and patriotism required by his
difficult position would he indeed extraor
dinary. MILAN AND QUEEN NATALIE
Held Responsible for the Action of Their
The course taken by the young king will
generally be attributed to the influence ot
his father and mother, ex-King Milan and
Queen Xatalie, who have recently been
reconciled after many years of discord.
Queen Xatalie has never forgiven the re
gents for her expulsion from the country
in May, 1S91, an event which was accom
panied with considerable violence and
which evoked chivalrous resistance on the
part of her supporters, two of whom were
killed by the troops.
The Reconciled Family Supreme.
Ex-King Milan has felt that the regency
was a menace in some degree to his dy
nasty as well as to the influence which he
desired to exercise in Servia. The recon
ciliation, as well as the approach of young
Alexander to the period at which he would
be entitled to assume the reins without a
regency, has made the house of Obreno
vitch virtually irresistible and left its an
tagonists without any standing sufficient
to oppose the power of the reconciled
How the Conp Was Carried Out.
The details of the coup are as follows:
The young king presided at the banquet
and after the third course rose and said:
"Gentlemen, for four years you, in my
name, have administered the kingly pow
er. I thank you heartily for the trouble
you have taken. I now feel able to ad
minister the power, and will exercise it
from this moment. I beg you, therefore,
immediately to hand me your resigna
tions." Couldn't and Wouldn't Resign.
M. Ristics replied that he could not and
would not comply with the king's request,
which was contrary to the constitution.
The king thereupon left the room and the
arrest of the ministers followed. Last
night the king's assumption of power was
celebrated with a torchlight procession
and general illuminations.
The Cutters and Their Employers.
Xew Yobk, April 15. The conference
between the clothing manufacturers and

bone of contention throughout the strug
gle, namely, that the manufacturers
should employ only union men.

Washington, April 15. The feature of
the senate session yesterday was the re
quest of Roach that his reputation be in
quired into by a senate committee. He
said he had desired this from the first, but
bad been dissuaded. The Democratic sena
tors, however, refused to permit the pas

right to investigate anything except acts
that were connected with an election to
the senate. Voorhees said the state was
the sole judge of a senator's reputation.
The resolution for the Martin inquiry

There was a substitute proposed for
Hoar's resolution which provides for an in

investigate such a case as that of Roach.
Th.e probability is that t he Republicans
will insist on a roll-call on the substitute
and, the judges of the District court of ap
peals having been nominated, that the sen
ate will adjourn today.
