The "El Paso Kid." the colored yiuth who was a high roller in the darktown third street colony, is safe ly lodged in the county jair over in old town. Here he will eat and sleep un til the grand jury take action on his deeds, which are shady. His hearing came up before Judge Crawford late yesterday afternoon. The "EI Paso Kid" has very little re spect for the truth, In fact he don't have any regard for it whatever. Some time ago he hit the town, coming here from the Pass city, and took up his abode In the Third street colony. He was such an entertaining, good natur ed and good looking youth that he soon found employment. Miss Lillian Williams on West Copper avenue hired him to do this and that around the house and make himself useful. The "El Paso Kid's" 6porting blood Lolled to be a bigger sport, so he did make himself useful and very much disuseful to Miss Williams. Last Friday afternoon he invaded her jew elry box and got away with nearly $400 worth of her choice gems. The "Kid" lit out with them and got away up to Raton, when the cruel arm of tho law nabbed him on Monday. Deputy Sheriff Newcomer of this city went af ter him and brought him back Tues day night. They have the "Kid," but the Jewelry has disappeared and no trace of it can be found. The "Kid" is such a liar and has so many names that not much could be learned at the bearing. First he'd tell one story and then that would contra dict. He told City Marshal McMillin that his name was Major Toney and that his father's name was Toney Ma jor. It Is evident that he or his father was twisted when he was born. The "Kid" denied e-er working for Miss Williams in the face of positive evi dence that he did. Such cheerful, straight, honest lying has not been heard in the police court for years. Judge Crawford found suf ficient evidence and the "Kid" was bound over under $1.0oi) bail. Friday evening at 7:45 o'clock reg ular Sabbath services will be held at Temple Albert, corner Seventh street and West Gold avenue. Rabbi Jacob H. Kaplan will lecture the last time this year.

TROOPS REVOLT AGAINST DESPOTISM New Government Formed and Pilneellng Is Proclaimed King. Belgrade, Servla, June 11. King Al exander and Queen Drags were shot to death In the royal palace during the night. The deed was carried out by the army. Besides the king and queen, Premier Markovitch, General Petro- vitch and former Minister of War Pa volitch were shot. Royal Household Slain. Belgrade, Servla, June 11. A mili tary revolution broke out here last night. The troops, who revolted un der the leadership of Major Angivo vics, surrounded the palace, assassin ated King Alexander, Queen Draga, the letter's sister, the queen's brother, Nikedem; Premier Markovitch, Min isters Petrovitch and Tudorovlcs, Gen eral Pavlovltch, former minister of war, and some of the members of the royal guard. Prince Karageorge Go- vitch was proclaimed king. A new government was formed and was is sued to the Servian people. People Excited. Belgrade, June 11. As the morning advanced the excitement in the streets grew steadily. In spite of the pouring rain, thousands of people gathered in the vicinity of the palace. Every where troops of all arms were posted and field guns were placed in position to quickly deal with any opposition to the newly formed government. The holders discarded their cockades bear ing the late King Alexander's cipher and substituted for it flowers, green twigs and leaves. Bands of young men paraded the streets, waving Hags and shouting "I-ong live Kara georgevltch." Flags are flying from nearly every house in Belgrade and there Is absolutely no display what ever of crepe or other signs of mourn ing. The royal standard has been low ered from over the palace. Reports from places outside Belgrade indicate that the country accepts the disap pearance of the Obrenovltch dynasty without regret. Cause of the Revolution. Ixmdon, June 11. The Servian min ister said there were many causes leading to the revolution. A large sec tion of the people were greatly dissat isfied with the tendency of King Alex ander to eliminate the radical element from the governneut and by the con stant Tumors of his intention to ap point Queen Draga's brother, Lunje vlza, heir apparent. In addition to this the queen was disliked by the i people who were also intensely out raged at the recent suspension of the constitution. The minister did not anticipate that the changes would re sult In internecine strife, or in any rial dangers to the country. He pointed out that the original Kara george was not a prince. He 'was a rich swine owner. The father of the new king was made a prince In 1842. The universal anxiety of the govern ments of Europe for peace is advanced as a reason why the Servian situation is not likely to lead to complications. Should, however, these unexpectedly arise official circles think an Austro iiungarian army will immediately march Into Servla and restore order. This, eventually, however. Is consider ed Improbable. Ixmdon, June 11. A special dis patch to the Times alleges that near ly a hundred persons were killed last night at Belgrade, but there Is no con firmation of this report from else where. Story of the Tragedy. Cologne, June 11. The Cologne Ga zette prints a dispatch from Belgrade, which says a story is current there that the late King Alexander was re cently considering effecting separation from Queen Draga and that the latter becoming aware of this, planned pre ventative measures. Some high niill- QUEEN TO DEATH tary officers last night, the dispatch adds, entered the palace and tried to carry off the queen by force, but en countered strong resistance on the part of the queen's partisans, and la the fierce struggle which' followed th king and queen and their respective supporters were killed. The ministers who shared the fate of their sover eigns were the leading spirits of the Obrenovitls party. Their murder re moves the only men capable of making a real stand against the Karageorge vitchs who have now no serious oppo sition in Servla. End of Dynasty. Cologne, June 11. A telegram from Belgrade says: "The career of the Obrenovltch dynasty was closed in the early hours of this morning, the same day of the year on which Prince Mich ael was murdered thirty-five years ago In the park of Topschlder near Bel grade.
