Alexander Succumbs to 1'oison from

cially announced to-day.
Succession Presents DifllcnltJes.
Many difficulties regarding succes
sion to the Greek throne will result
from the death of King Alexander,
which occurred last night. There is
every indication that the third son
of former King Constantine, Prince

lt is probable that King Constan
tine will at first refuse to meet these
conditions, but it is understood that
Premier Venizelos will produce ar
guments of some importance.
Constantine's financial status is
well known, and it is understood the
1 premier will agree to restore tho
former king's suppressed pension if
tho above terms aro accepted,
i Only in the event of Constantine's
persistent refusal would there bc a
I question of the establishment of a
i republic, but lt ls known that Pre
1 mler Venlzolos is of the opinion that
i Greece is not yet ripe for that form
of government.
I There is also tho possibility of of
' foring the throne to a foreign prince.
. but the i rentier is reluctant lc take
r such a step. To begin with, lt would
. bo hard to find a suitable candidate.
1 When Prince Otto cf Bavaria was
; called to the throne of Greece In 1832
; the protecting powers of Great Brit
ain, France and Russia gave solemn
? undertaking that none of their
i princes would seek the throne-an
1 undertaking wh'oh was renewed by
j King George, of Great Britain, In
\ 1017.
As a result the choise is narrowed
considerably. Prince Charles, the
second son of King Albert of bel
gium, has been mentioned as a prob
: able candidate, but King Albert rc
. contiy mad. it known that If the
throne should ho offered the prince.
i the offer would be refused.
Members of the Greek cabinet con
! ferret! on Sunday, but decisions that
may have hoon reached, if any, have
not been made public,
i There is a rumor current that tho
I coining elections will be deferred.
I but this is considered improbable. In
? Hie voting which will take placo on
November Mb Premier Venizelos ls
expected to carry his party to victory
by a substantial majority.
May Appoint Regent.
Admiral P. Coundouriotis, former
minister of marine, is believed to lie
the government official most favored
for Hie appointment ns regent of
Greece, to hold office until tho suc
cessor of King Alexander ascends tho
throne. He was formerly a member
of the Salonika government, and ls
known to be friendly toward the Fa
ten te.
