i.' .via. MINISTRY IS IN AQUMDARY Russian and Austrian Demands for Punishment of Servian Murder ers Cause Trouble. King Peter Seems Inclined to Allow Parliament to Deal With the Matter. Belgrade Papers Caustically Criticize Sreat Britain for the Attitude She Has Assumed. "Belgrade, June 22.The position of the ministry is becoming more unenviable daily in consequence of the Russian and Austrian demands for the punishment of the assassins of King Alexander and Queen Draga. The terms of the" Russian note almost caused a panic among the cabinet ministers, who are anxiously awaiting the arrival of King Peter to ex plicate them from the dilemma. The war minister is the paramount power in the ministry, as he is backed by the entire army, and he threatens severe measures in the case of punishment of the con spirators. The promotions of officers sent from Geneva are variously explained as cither Intended as an open defiance or as being the results of alarm caused by the attitude of the army. The foreign representatives who have not been instructed are asking their re spective governments what attitude they shall assume at the reception of King Peter. The Russian minister is in a quandary. He had resumed relations with the provisional government when the czar telegraphed his recognition of King Peter, but the minister takes the subse quent publication of Russia's demand for . punishment as an Indication that Russia will possibly order the suspension of re lations with the government until the murderers are punished. 1 Meanwhile, preparations for the recep tion of King Peter continues. A public holiday has been proclaimed, provincial deputations are coming to Belgrade, free wine and beer are to be provided by the government, and the town is to be given ,up to rejoicing. Scoffed at Britain. A newspaper here makes scoffing al lusions to Great Britain's moral attitude respecting the assassination. It says: "It is a pity that a countr yso enlightened and so liberal has failed to see the purport of late events forced upon this country by the tyrannous rule of King Alexander. .The world will not forget that Great Britain recently crushed the life out of .two small nationalities." The foreign representatives met yester day to decide upon their attitude on the occasion of King Peter's arrival Wednes day. It is stated that there was such a .variance that a decision could not be ' reached and the representatives tele graphed to their respective governments - lor instructions. Colonel Nicolitch, who. attempted to .bring help to King Alexander from sub urban garrisons on the night of the mur - drtf, a.nd who -was rei)iB*1^yj ' killed en route in a combat with an.offl cer connected with the plot, proves to be alive. He was severely wounded, and was .taken to a hospital. He is recovering. KING LEAVES TO-NIGHT Peter Will Leave Geneva for Belgrade This Evening. Now York Sun Special Service. * . Geneva, June 22.The Servian parlia- . mentary delegation arrived here yester day. It consists of eight members, whose mission is to greet King Peter and obtain his signature to the new constitution. They were welcomed at the railway sta tion by the king's secretary and a num ber of Servian and Russian students, later they were received in audience by the king. They will accompany his maj esty to Belgrade. King Peter will leave for his capital at * o'clock this evening. In addition to the foregoing he will be attended by his brother, Prince Arsene, some Servian civil officials, a military body guard and & number of detectives. He has again been asked whether he in tends to punish the regicides. His reply indicates that he has changed his mind during the last few day's. He was quoted lately as saying emphatically that if he permitted the guilty officers to escape he would be equally guilty with them. To day he said, evasively, that it was a mat ter for the Servian parliament to settle. In any case it was an internal question and did not concern the foreign powers. He refused to discuss the matter fur ther. His majesty is reported to be much Irritated and upset by the attitude of England and the other powers that are actingfwith her. King Peter spent part of Saturday in making final purchases, which included a revolver and a quantity of jewelry. He has .ordered a general's uniform in addition to a crown, which is being made by a Paris goldsmith at a cost of 50,000 francs. ASSASSINS PROMOTED Servian Conspirators Fare Well In Mat ter of Appointments. Belgrade, June 22.Army officers who took part in the assassination of King Alexander and Queen Draga are already receiving promotions, ostensibly from King Peter. The appointment of Lieutenant Colonel MIschits as commandant of the military district of Belgrade carries with it pro motion to a colonelcy. Colonel Popo vitch of King Alexander's palace guard - has been promoted to be a general and senior aide to King Peter. Captain Kos tisch, who opened the palace gates to the conspirators, has been made a major. Lieutenant Grouitch, who commanded that guard outside the palace on the night of the murders, has received a captaincy. The last three form the military depu tation sent formally to Geneva to notify King. Peter of his selection. ,L B United States Won't Recognize Peter. Washington, June 22.The United * States government has adopted an atti tude similar to that of England toward - the new 'Servian dynasty. It will be in ' no haste to recognize a government cre ated.by ..assassination in the absence of some disposition to punish the guilty. Therefore Mr. Jackson, who, besides be ing minister to Greece, is also United States minister to Servia, will not present -'fhis- credentials to the government of ' dicing, Peter at present. In fact, these ', ^credentials have not been prepared. He - - had credentials to King Alexander, whichPayne'S i he had never presented, and he was ac- " * fua'Hy - on his way from- Athens to Bel jf grade at the time of the assassination of 4- the king. .t . . ..

WHAT WILL THE TRIE DEVELOP? Washington Politicians Now Are Discussing Prospective Disclos ures of the Machen Case. It Is Said That Former Rural Super intendent Was Congressmen's Cats-paw. Former Representative Loud Al ready ImplicatedOthers May Expect a like Fate. New York Sun Special Service. Washington, June 22.The publication of the statement that Former Representa tive Loud, chairman of the postofflce.com mittee, assisted in railroading men into -the classified government serviee via- the Bakersfield, Cal., route, has aroused live ly discussion of" the probable sensational developments at the trial of 3Pormer ^Su- perintendent Machen of the free delivery service, which will be held next fall. Interest in the character of Mr, Mach en's testimony is intensified by the fact' that Machen, when he read a published interview in which Mr. Loud roasted the free delivery service in general and Machen in particular, grew purple with indignation and surprise and said: "By God, Loud _dare not talk that way about me. I'll put him on the'bum. I've got letters, letters, letters, and if neces-' sary, I'll publish them in every paper in the country." Whatever Mr. Machen may have to say with regard to Mr. Loud when he.takes the stand in'his own defense, is consid ered relatively unimportant compared with the problematical character' of his further testimony. The relations of Mr. Machen with numbers of senators and rep resentatives and other prominent men were known to be friendly, in some cases even intimate. Congressmen Implicated. They came to-the superintendent of the free delivery service for favors.- Mr. Machen was always obliging. The rural free delivery service has been, 'Without doubt, the most popular branch' of the postal service, and- is, therefore, an ac knowledged factor in establishing the pop ularity of senators and representatives among their constituents. The investigation of the rural free de livery service up to the present time has demonstrated that a considerable propor tion of the rural routes established by the former superintendent of the free de livery service are to all intents and pur poses practically worthless from every point of view. The districts of_ certain members of the house of representatives with whom Mr. Machen was more than ordinarily intimate, are plastered with nir ral routes until an official map of the dis trict showing the intersecting routes looks like a spider's web, . -"'President Roosevelt had a long confer* ence with Fourth Assistant.

PAYNE'S POSITION Will President Roosevelt Continue Him in Office? New York Sun Special Serviee. 'Chicago, June 22.Walter Wellman in a Washington special to the Record-Herald says: - Now it is the head of the postoffice de partment, Postmaster General Payne him self, who is under fire. The effort to, drive him out of the cabinet is being renewed with redoubled energy. The little plot formed some time ago to destroy certain officials, to smirch Perry Heath and to put an end to the political career of Mr. Payne is still on. Many newspapers and newspaper correspondents are in a hue and cry for Mr. Payne's head. They call upon him to resign they urge President Roosevelt to dismiss him. Evidently they have in mind the fate of-Mr. Alger, secre tary of war. It will be remembered that Mr. Alger was offered up in sacrifice by President McKinley to appease the news papers which demanded a victim. Within forty-eight hours after saying that Mr. Al ger had don nothing wrong and that to dismiss him would be a confession of guilt on the part of his administration, Presi dent McKinley yielded to the pressure and sent Vice President Hobart to Gen eral Alger with a request for hfe resigna tion. General Alger fell a victim to the bad system which prevailed in the war de partment and in the faulty organization of the army which Secretary Root has since successfully bent his energies to correcting. It is now generally admitted, even by his most loyal friends, that in dismissing General Alger President Mc Kirtley for once showed the white feather in the face of public clamor. President Behind Payne. Can President Roosevelt be stampeded into dismissal of Mr. Payne? Probably not, and yet there is no certainty about it. At the present time President Roosevelt stands squarely behind his postmaster general. He says he is all right and that it is absurd to talk of letting him go. The president expresses his opinion with char acteristic frankness of this well organized and deliberate attempt to force Ms. Payne out. He speaks of his postmaster general in terms of confidence and affection. Tho not denying that Mr. Payne has made mistakes, he says they were errors of the head and not of the heart, and have no important bearing upon the question at issue. The president declares that all talk tGj the effect that the postmaster general-has not faithfully and zealously pushed the investigation of the postoffice department is stuff and nonsense. And yet, in the na-. ture of things, no one is atJle to foresee what effect upon the mind of the presi dent the crusade against Mr. Payne may have. If the newspapers continue their demand for the head of the postmaster general and insist in their scaSfctfig com ment upon his mistakes and shortcom ings, his judgment and nerve may in the end be affected in the same way Mr. Mc Kinley was affected in the Alger case. That is for the future tp determine. Just now the president is firm and frank in his defense of Payne. A t the same time it is possibly somewhlat significant that semi-official announcement has been made at the White House that the president knew nothing of orie of Mr. Payne's mis takes, the reference to President McKin ley, until he received it in the newspapers. In other words, that statement of Mr. to the effect that charges were an atttack upon President McKinley was not authorized by President Roosevelt and is'not now approved by him. rf u.

White, former United States minister at St. Petersburg, and!. more recently United States ambassador at Berlin, and who re turned from Germany- only last week, says that Emperor William and President "Roosevelt have many points of resem blance. 3He says: . ."The .kaiser, is .as much like President Roosevelt as & German could be, and the president is fes much like Emperor William as an American could be. The differences ttMMMMM.MMWMM.WWHHmMMHMMWHMM.ltWWI between them are- national rather than temperamental. ,. "They are alike In many things " he continued "There's a certain physical re semblance to begin with. Both are vigor ous, strongmen. Both are fond of hunt ing. Both are honest and aggressive. Each is patriotic according, to his 'lights. Each has a tremendous faith in his"own country and both are what is called strenuous." During his residence'in Germany Mr. White had many opportunities to study the emperbr at close range. As United States ambassador Mr. White had every opportunity to meet the ruler of Ger many, officially and at state - functions. Besides this, he Was the warm personal friend of his majesty, frequently dined with him, and had many private inter views in which aU formality . was dis pensed with. He says: Emperor 'Works' Hard. "Emperor William is probably the hard est working man in Germany, Few people are out of bed in Berlin when He takes up his day's tasks, and many have gone, to bed before he has finished'his work. He has a wonderfully well trained mfna" and never wastes a moment. That accounts for the vast amount of .work he has ac complished. "Notwithstanding the great gains of the social democrats in Germany in the elec tion this week I think the emperor's per sonal popularity is gaining.-1 have trav eled extensively in Germany. I have talked with all classes of people" and it may be that I have gained a wider knowledge of the conditions, of that country than man*/ Germans themselves. I think that the great bulk of the people believe in their kaiser. "They have.faith in his honesty and in his sincerity, altho they may. not all be lieve in his policy. They' believe he is studying national problems as earnestly as the reformers. "Of course there is some bitterness^ some, complaint,, but personal _ feeling against the kaiser is not bitter. He has great consideration for the wbrkmgman. He has a wide and accurate knowledge of their Conditions. In fact he has a won derful knowledge of everything that is going on in his empire.

Leo's Features Seemed Slightly More Attenuated and His Hands Trembled Perceptibly. Rumors of His Serious Condition, However, Are Set at Rest by To-day's Appearance. Rome," June 22.The consistory to-day was specially important owing to the per sistent rumors regarding ..the pope's ill health and the previous postponements. Naturally a ceremony in which the pope, half hidden in vestments, is borne on a chair and is continually assisted, is not the best opportunity to judgef of his ap pearance or the state of his health but a man capable of undergoing the strain of such a function has plenty of vitality. The pontiff's . features seemed slightly more clear-cut and his "hands trembled - perceptibly, but his voice was plainly heard, tho it has lost something of its power. . /The consistory-was shortened, as much as possible, and only lasted about thirty five minutes. All the cardinals of the curia.were.invited to the Vatican half an hour before the pope's appearance, and they assembled -in the consistory hall in order of precedence, forming a striking picture. The entrance of the pope, clad in white vestments and surrounded by his trusted companions in their- red robes, gave a finishing touch to the scene. After receiving the homage of those present, the pontiff-recited a prayer and then pro ceeded to the nomination of the new car dinals. The traditional secrecy was maintained, tho now it is largely a matter of form. The pope proposed each new cardinal, members of the sacred college signifying their assent by raising their caps. The New Cardinals. The following were created cardinals: Monsignor Fischer, archbishop of Co logne .Mbnsignor Taliani, papal nuncio at Vienna Monsignor CaVicchioni, secretary of the congregation of the council Mon signor Ajuti, papal nuncio at Lisbon Monsignor Nocella, secretary of the con sistorial congregation Monsignor Katsch taler, archbishop of Salzburg, Austria, and Most- Rev. Perroe Espinoa, arch bishop of Valencia. The pope transferred Cardinal. Sera fino Vannutelli from the bishopric of Frascati to that of Porto Santa Rufina, which is of higher rank. Cardinal Satolli was transferred from the titular bishopric of Santa-Maria in Aracocti, to the diocese of Frascati, near Rome, the summer residence of the Ro man aristocracy. Afterward the pope announced the nom inations of several archbishops, who had been appointed by brief. The pontiff ap pointed Cardinal Agliardi, who has been replaced as prefect of economy of the propaganda to be vice, chancellor by the Chiesa Delia Volpe." .Kissed Pope's Foot.'-v??-^-?.*&" At the conclusion of the consistory the pope went to the throneroom, where, sur rounded by the cardinals and the papal court, he received the homage of the new archbishops and bishops. The ancient ceremonies were observed, each of the prelates kissing the pontiff's foot and re ceiving the apostolic'benediction. In the meanwhile the masters of cere monies, accompanied by church dignita ries, prooeeded to the residence of Moh signors Fischer, Caviachioni and-Nocella, announced their appointments and in formed them that the pope would bestow the red hats on Jthem .at a public cbn sitory to,be held Thursday.

The per sonal tax due at this place was $60, and the costs amounted to $60 more. The deputy accordingly demanded the pay *ment of $120. The woman declared that she didn't have a cent, that she didn't own any of the effects in the establishment, and that she had never heard of a personal prop erty tax.before, anyway. She warned the officers - not to touch another's property.at their . peril, but Deputy Jones cut the interview- Short by informing her that if she was unwilling .or.unable to pay her tax, there was only one thing to doto seize enough furniture .to satisfy the assessment. Then he ran a critical eye over the par lor furniture and remarked , that four handsomely upholstered leather cush ioned .chairs and a divan looked pretty good *ttf" him. A loud outcray ensued and the woman of the house protested against the removal of "fiye hundred dollars' .worth of goods for a $60 bill." Jones Regrets the Fit. - - Irene planted herself firmly on a divan as if to block the way of the deputies, but thought better of It, and, rushing into an adjoining apartment, commenced to sob hysterically. \ "You men better be careful how you go 'bout this business," said a white-faced girl who had hovered on the outskirts of the engagement up to this time. "She's going to throw a fit now and she always gets beyond control. We always, have to get a doctor when she gets that way." "Sorry to give her fits," rejoined Jones, "but business is business.

"Take the piano instead of the furni- ture," she begged, with another freshet of tears "don't leave me without any thing to sit on. I'll pay the $2 for re moving the piano." . "Hard to handle," said Jones, reflec tively, halting a moment. "Paid for? No? Can't use it then. You can get this stuff out just as quick. Move on, boys." After this Irene continued to call fran tically at-.the telephone for "Sam," and had succeeded in communicating with him just as the furniture reached the head of the Stairs. She told him to "come down this instant", and detailed the outrage then being perpetrated, but "Sam" didn't care to get into the argument..."It tran spired that he was her attorney.

"I've lived , in Minneapolis fif teen years and have never paid this tax before and I never will again. Why, I haven't got more than $200 worth of prop erty in my place and it is an outrage.

"Whose fault is it then, I'd like tp know" "It's up to the assessor." 'Oh, it is, is it? Who is the assessor? Is he a bachelor? If he is, I'll marry him and that's the way I can get even."
