Decreased Spring Wheat Acreage. Many Strikes Settled Big Roches ter Fire McCormick-Hanna Wed dingThird Victory For the Reli ance Forty Days' Faster Dead. A military conspiracy which events showed had the sympathy of the ma jority of the Servian people, was car ried out In the early hour of Thursday morning and King Alexander, Queen Draga, her two brothers and several ministers were assassinated at Bel grade. Prince Peter Karageorgevltch, the pretender to the throne, has been pro claimed king by the army and there Is every reason to believe that this de cision will be confirmed by the Servian parliament, which has been summoned to meet on June 15. The revolution was executed with out any opposition on the part of the people of Belgrade and the capital and the country remain tranquil. The chief conspirators were all men of high rank, who acted in concert with the army. The king and queen passed the even ing of their death quietly. They at tended a choral festival, then took supper In the Konak and afterwards retired to rest. Meantime, the con eplrators held a meeting. About 1 o'clock In the morning the Sixth and Seventh regiments were called to arms and weTe led to tho royal palace, which they entirely surrounded. A band of 30 officers led by Colonel Maschln and Colonel Mlschlcs, forced their way Into the palace, shouting all who attempted to bar their passage. Colonel Naumovics, the adjutant ol the king, was entrusted with the ex ecution of the plans. While on duty at 1 o'clock Thursday morning Naumovics burst In the door leading to the sleep ing apartments of the royal couple with a bomb and then entered, accom panied by Mlschlcs and a number of junior officers. Previously tho guard had been overpowered and Its com mander, Captain Pauajowics, was killed. Naunrovlcs presented to the king a form of abdication for his signature. The document contained the state ment that by marrying a "public pros titute" the king had degrade -1 Servla and that therefore he must abdicate. The king's answer was to draw a re volver and kill Naumovics on the spot. Mlschlcs then picked up the docu ment and presented It again, and the king, who perceived his danger, fled with Queen Praga to the palace roof, both being In their night clothes. The officers followed, continuously firing and ultimately shot down the royal couple. Major I.ttka Iazarewics, who had been under the king's displeasure for two years, Is said to have fired the shot which actually killed the king. The remains bf the Ill-fated king and queen were burled almost stealth ily Thursday night In tho chapel of St. Mark, where the members of the Ob renovitch family are interred. The parliament of Servla met at noon Monday and within 15 minutes had elected Prince Peter Karageorge vltch as king of Srrvia. Decreased Acreage of Spring Wheat. Returns to the statistician of the de partment of agriculture on the acre ago of spring wheat sown Indicate an area of about 17,257,000, a decrease of 304,000 acres, or 2.1 per cent from the revised estimate of the acreage sown last year. An Increaso of 10 per cent in North Dakota Is accompanied by a decrease of 6 per cent In Minnesota and 5 per cent In South Dakota. The average condition of spring wheat on June 1 was 95.9, as compar ed with 95.4 at tho corresponding date last year, 92 on June 1, 1901, and a ten year average of 92.9. The average condition of winter wheat on June 1, was 82.2, as compar ed with 92.G on May 1, 1903; 76.1 on June 1, 1902, and a ten year average of 79.1. The total reported area In oats is about 27,732,000 acres, a reduction of 920,000 acres, or 3.2 per cent from the area sown last year. The average condition on June 1 was 85.5 against 90.6 on Jujie 1, 1902, and a ten year average of 90.2. The barley acreage reported ex ceeds that harvested last year by about 330,000 acres, or 7.1 per cent. The average condition Is 91.5, against 93.6 on June 1, 1902, and a ten year average of 88.7. The acreage under rye shows a re duction of 3.0 per cent from last year. Tho average condition Is 90.6 against 8S.1 on June 1, 1902, and 89 for the last ten years. The acreage of clover for the coun try as a whole cannot be satisfactor ily determined, but all the principal clover states except Wisconsin report decrease in acreage. The condition of clover in New York shows below the ten year average. Of the fourteen states having 5,000, 00ft apple trees and upwards, but two, Virginia and Trnneiqc. report con ditions above their ten yenr averages, 'h conditions In the other ranging front two points to 23 points below. The present prospects for the peach crop are decidedly unfavorable, Okla homa alone showing a condition above it? ten year average. In the condition of spring pastures during the past month. New York shows considerably lower than last nionth. Many Big Strikes Settled. Weather, croo and labor condition all show improvement this week, and the feeling has grown that damage from the foregoing sources has been overestimated. The feeling in the flooded districts of the West is also better, although freight business is largely suspended, while the breaking of the drought in the East has put to an end to the forest fires, helped the crops materially ,and led here also to the fet'ling that crop damage has been exaggerated. Special reports to Bradstreets show that 295,000 Industrial workers were on strike or locked out on or about June 1. Since then, however, all the great strikes but one, that of Philadel phia textile? workers, have been prac tically settled, as also a host of minor troubles; 175.000 workers concerned have announced their intention of go ing, back to work or have actually re sumed operations Since January 1 this year 585,000 workers have Btruck, against 690,000 In the entire year 1894; but strikes this year are for advances, shorter hours, or unionism pure and simple, whereas wage reductions, this year unknown, were? a moving cause of idle ness In 1894, up to the present time the most disturbed year in this country's history. Crop damage reports and speculation held cereals and cotton high in May, but other farm products, meat and dairy products, moved lower. S. E. Lapp Accidentally Killed. Samuel E.
