Poter Knrngeorgevltch was Proclaimed
to Succeed tho Dead
Holgrado, June, 11.?King Alexander
of Servla, his queen, Draga Maschin,
three of his ministers nud the queen's
brother and sisters were assassinated
early this morning by Servian troops,
who, after accomplishing the murders,
proclaimed the pretender to the throne,
Poier Ivarageor?evltch, king. A com
mittee of army ofllcers called upon the
king at tho palace and asked him to
abdicate in favor of Karageorgevltch.
He refused and shot the officer who
made the demand. The latest reports
indicate that twenty-two were massa
cred in the palace and the ministers'
houses. One general, ono aide-de-camp
and twolvo members of the guard were
PLANNED WEEKS AGO.
r Tho revolution was planned weeks
ago. Colonel Naumovlcs, the king's
adjutant, was named to carry out the
plot. He visited the king and queen
at night, after b' )wing open the door
of their chamber, and gave tho king a
paper to sign, abdicating tho throne.
The paper referred to tho queen as a
"notorious woman." The king's an
swer was to shoot. Naumovlcs. The
royal couplo then fled in their night
clothes to tho roof, but were pursued
by the usurpers. There is every indi
cation that tho change will be accepted
by the people. No further bloodshed
is expected. Tbo military headed the
revolution . After killing the king and
queen, the troops slew the queen's sis
ters and her brother. Then they at
tacked the houses of the ministers,
killing three and a number of the
royal guard. The new government an
nounced the restoration of the con
stitution abrogated by King Alexan
ARMY Hi STILE.
Dispatches from Belgrade say that
a.uce 'ho late king suspended the Ser
vian Constitution tho army had been
N - animated by hostile feelings toward
both the king end queen. Committees
were organizod in the country and
worked in co-operation with the army.
The leaders of the revolution are said
to havo been the new ministers of jus
tice and finance, and the sixth regi
ment of infantry, garrisoned at Bel
grade, was designated to carry out the
plot, It was originally intended that
the plot should be executed later, but
the fears that the Servian parliament
would settle tho question of succession
to the throne, hastened the matter.
The streets were througed with people
' whose actions seem to approve the
deed of the revolutionists. The bodies
of the king and queen remain In the
palace, which is surrounded by a strong
cordon of troops. Bands of young men
are parading the streets, waving flags
and shouting, "Long live Karageorge
vitch." Flags are flying all over the
city and there is absolutely no display
whatever of crepe or other eigns of

The following letter is published at
the request of Col. M . P. Trlbblo who
has chargo of compiling the rolls of
Confederate veterans of South Carolina,
to bo published by the War Depart
ment, and following it is a lotter on the
subject from General Ainsworth:
K?ster of Confederate Soldiers.
All persons, either as individuals or
societies, who may have In their pos

Confederate Sjldiers who served in the
Army or Navy from this State will
please send such rol's or records to me

and records In order to compile a ros
ter and history of the men who served
from South Carolina in the Confeder

tween the States.
Tho Department will take good o.\re
of all rolls or records and return them
as early as possible. I am authorized
by the War Department to collect theso
rolls, etc.,, and I will give a receipt
for them if desired. The utmost care
will be takeu of them and they will bo
returned promptly when the Depart

Col. M. P. Tribble, Auderson, S. C.
Dear Sir: Tbo Department having
been advised by Governor lleyword on
the 26lh instant that he will be glad to
cooperate with it in tho compilation of
the recently authorized roster of the
officers and men of tho Union and Con
federate Armies, and that he has de
signated you to confer with me relative
to the details of tho work, I beg loavo
to submit the following for your con
A considerable collection of South
Carolina Confederate organizations Is
now in the possession of this Depart
ment. While that collec'ion does not
by any means show all the names of
the officers and men who wore in the
Confederate service from South Caro
lina, and whllo it dees not show the
complete military histories of those
whose names It does show, It is hoped
that the list of names and the histories
of individual officers and men can be
made much more nearly conipleto by
record ovidenco obtainable from other
original rolls that may now be in tho
possession of the St*lo of South Caro
lina, or of historloi' violettes, memo
rial associations, and individuals of
South Carolina and other States.
The legislation authorising the com
pilation of the roster Is construed by
the Department to restrict it, In mak
ing tho compilation, to tho ueo of or
iginal records made during the war
period, and to preclude tho usm of
printod or manuscript copies or com
pilations made subsequently. For this
reason, and in order that there shall
be no ground for doubt a.^ to tho ac
curacy of the proposed rrster, tho De
partment will be unable to use In tho
compilation any of tho rosters that
have heretofore been published, but
must in all cases seek tho original re
cords upon which those ro?tora wore
You will readily see that, in order
that the pompiiation now in progress
shall be as nearly complete as it 19 pos
sible lo make it, it is essential that tho
War Department shall obtain the tem
porary loan, for the purpose of copj
ing, of any original official rolls, lists
or othor decumonts that show the
names of Confederate olllcors aud mon
that aro now in tho custody of State of
flcla's, historical or memorial associa
tions, pnhlio or priyato libraries, or
that aro In the poseesiop of private
Jt Is Impracticable for the War De
partment to coramunlcato with tho va
rious holders of these scattered rocords
and consequently the Department must
rely upon eaoh S'alo to colloct, by loan
or otherwise, such records of its own
or other Confederate organizations as
may bo obtainable within the State,
and to forward tho collection when
completed to this Department, by
which the reoords will be coplod and
returned to the Stato with the least
possible delay. Of course, the express
charges Incident to and from tho State
will bo defrayed by the Slate.
If It opeurs to you tba*. a dlfforent
plan from that indicated herein should
be adopted, or If during the progress
of the work you can mako any sugges
tion tending to facilitate or improve it,
you will ponfer * favor upon the De
