Austria would? not object because, although the Prince was once the avowed enemy of Austria, lie has since given repeated assurances that In the event of his coming to the throne of Servia ho was desirous of living amicably with Austria.

Tho Pails manager of ono of tho leading American life Insurance compnntes In? formed tho correspondent of tlie Asso? ciated Press that a number of efforts wero made to insure the lives of the Servian sovereigns, but that the Company de? clined to accept the risks, knowing of tho dynastie Intrigues. Similar efforts wero made with another American company, which nlso declined tlio applications. Ono reason for tho refusal was the persistency of the applications. Tho belief Is rapidly gaining ground hero that ihn new dynasty will bave a dangerous task in attempting to overcome tho recollection of Its bloody entrance Into power. Tlio Journal des D?bats charac? terizes ilio dominant. Servian element as "tho party of regicides.' THE NHW KING. Prince Toter Kiirageorgevitcli. the new King, was a member of tho fashionable diplomatic set Of Paris and Included among his uequalnauecs a number of Americans.

Ho was educated at the St. Cyr Military Col lego nnd enternd the French army in 1ST0. with tho rank of captain. A brother, Prince Arsone, is now In Paris. Tlio latter received a dispatch to-day advising him that his brother had been proclaimed King. Prince Arsene said ho probably would Join his brother nnd toko part In the events connected with his assuming tho sovereignly of Servia.

Tho newly proclaimed King, Dr. Pet erovi tch, added is sending his son to St. Petersburg, whoro ho will bo educated at tho ex? penso of tho Imperial court of Russin. Politicians had frequently sought to Induce the new King to attempt to tnko the throne of Servia, but ho always re? plied that ho would not permit a dynastic contest to provoke a cjvll convulsion and ho preferred to await tho result nf the popular weariness resulting from tho old reclino. MENACE TO PF.ACF.. A French government official said: "Tho bloody deed of last night Is tho most pressing moiiace to the gonferai peace of Europa that has happened in many years."' Prince Bodijar Karagoorgevltch, a cou? sin of tho proclaimed King, Is a"TOs!dont of Paris. He told a Temps reporter that ho did not hesitate to declare that ho considered Queen Draga to have boon 1he causo of the assassinations. On be? coming Queen she made herself first feared and then hated. Bhe brutally re? venged herself for the slightest offenses nnd pitilessly crushed high or low who had the mlsfortuno to displease her. The late King was only a tool In tho hands of this bold, dominating woman. He was so weak minded that a doctor who attended him at Biarritz declared that If he had been a Frenchman be would have been declared Intellectually unfit for military service Prince Bodijar added: "The youthful sovereign was the victim of tbe merited unpopularity of his con? sort. Ho could not. resist her. Ills culpable weakness destroyed him. More? over. 'Whoso draws the sword Khali perish by the sword.' My family has been tried to the utmost. My grandfather was assassinated and seventeen of my rela? tivos have boon executed without trial, while others wero tortured. Suoi?, crimes must he oxplated sooner or later."

It flraos tho hour of tho revo? lution at 2 o'clock this morning. Mr. Wilson, secretary of'legation, at Athens, also cabled the n?. ..-s, saying that tho "minister left for Belgrado Tues? day." WERE MANY CAUSES King Alexander Was Very Unpopular With Masses. (By ABsoclnted Press.) LONDON. June 12.?The Servian min? ister said there were many causes lend? ing to the resolution. A large section of the people wore' greatly dissatisfied with the tendency of King Elexander to eliminate the radical element from the government and bv the constant rumors of his Intention to appoint Queen Draga'a brother. Lunjovltza, heir apparent. In addition to tills tho Queen was disliked by the people who also wore Intensely outraged at tho recent suspension of the Constitution. Tho minister did not an? ticipato that tho changes would result, in internecine strife, or in any real dan? gers to tho country. Ho uolnted out that the original Kara George was not a lirlnce, He waa a rich swine owner. The father of the new King was made a prhico in 1S12. The minister also related a curious in? cident. Ho said that a month ago he was present at a clairvoyant's seance, at which a. lelter written by the murdered King was handed to tho clairvoyant, who immediately became intensely agi? tated, predicted, that Klnig Alexander would bo assassinated very shortly and even depleted the scone wliloh appears to have been onaotod at tho padaco at Belgrade during tlio night. Tho tragedy of the palace at Belgrade, making ilio latest of the revolutions which Ini ve convulsed Servia from time to time ?luring the past century, Is not regarded lu diplomatic circles in Lon? don as likely to load to civil war. Tho universal anxiety of tho govern? ments of Europe for peace is advanced as a reason whv tho Servian situation is not likely to lead to complications. A special dispatch from Rome alleges that nearly a hundred persons were klll eti last night at Belgrade, but there is no confirmation o? this report from elsewhere.

Worse still, fitful gleame oY lightning flashed a greonlsh light, which served much to complete the terror. The light? ning struck a tree in the yard of thla gontleman and knocked his berso sense? less. YESTERDAY'S DOWNPOUR, Yesterday the downpour was repeated, but earlier in tho day and minus the lightning and the thunder. About 3:3C o'clock In the afternoon solid straight streams of water, or so they appoared, began to pour down. So thick wero they packed together that nt times the vision waa all but completely obscured. Sudden gusts of wind bent the trees and sent spiral sheets of water flying through the air. It looked for the nonce a* IX ? genuine wild western flood would ensue. By 4:30 o'clock the hardest of tho hard rain.was done, and nearly an Inch had fallen. It came down more or less heavily for some time aftor that, and then stopped* and tho weather man pre? dicted fair weather for to-day. A de? cided ' drop In the temperature hart changed tho atmosphere from a sultri? ness nearly stifling to a delightful and refreshing cool. The weather bureau submitted its report, and showed that during the twenty-four hours preceding over two inches of rain luid fallen here. Anxious eyes wore kopt on the river, but tho rise hero was not sufficient to warrant any apprehension. The storm appeared local, or, at least, below Rich? mond, where it could not affect the rlvor at this point. Between Koysvtlle and Drake's Branch there occurred the hard? est nain In many years. Columbia kept calm and collected, and In view of this fnct there is no good reason to oxpect flood water. No damage to railway tracks, except In tho case of the South? ern, already referred to, was reported. TUB LOCOMOTIVE WORKS. Throughout Henrlco, however, where the precipitation was extremely hea-vy, creeks shot up with a bound. Several brldgos wero washed away. The one which conned s Barton Heights with tho Second Street rnad was turned over. Others on the boulevard also suffered, and the big now culvert there waa washed ? way. About ? o'clock in the afternoon the water of Shockoe Creek, which had been steadily advancing for the past hour, began to creep Into the Locomotive Works nt the foot of Seventh Btreet. Slowly, but relentlessly, it worked Ita way into the ' erecting shop, the tank corner, the boiler shop and tho carpenter shop. The men in the laat named de? partment wero to leave at B:30 o'clock In any event, and they lost but a half hour. But in the others, which were to continue Straight through the night, It was dif? ferent. ' A foot of wator covered every? thing less than a. foot high, and In the blacksmith room and In the forges the fires were extinguished. The men in the flooded departments had to cover their tools and chests and fly. Some of them were caught Inside, and had to wade out. It was Impossible during tho night to test more than ono of the several bpllars. None of the shops affected by the water could do business. The machine shop was the only one running last night. Gangs of negroes were put to work sweeping an?i bailing out the water, and trendies hod to be dug. Considerable damage was done to the power-house. About twenty-five feet of tho wall, ten feet high, has been washed away and a part of the embankment around It has caved in. Tho switch-board was In g^eat danger of falling but waa Jacked up and held secure during the night. The entire damugo to the power? house and the other departments will probably amount to two or three thou? sand dollars. About noon yesterday, six of the men, all white, at tho dinnor hour, were lean? ing on the rail over Shockoe Creek, when the ground under them caved In, precipi? tating them and the rail into the water. The dirt had been washed out by the high water of the night previous. For? tunately at this time the creek was in a reasonable condition and the men got out without much trouble. If they had fallen In a few hours later, when the atream was rushing by with a whirl, they would probably have been drowned. OTHER DAMAGES. Further Into Richmond the creek did not do much damage. The widening of tho outlet at the rlvor prevents the water from banking up so suddenly na It used io do when It flooded many of the cel? lars along Its route. Still, according to some of* tho property-holders along the route tho danger is yet groat. Fiirthev enlargement back from the river seems to be nocessary. Prom four to six hun? dred thousand pounds of salt moat ara stoiod in the collars of Armour & Co., ?nid would bo completely ruined by a choking up at tho arches. Ab It Is tlie water banked up tei some extent yesterday. It wan reported that the bridge at Fifteenth and Itigli Streets had been overturned and that a lot of timber had been washed away. In Hen? rlco many lu-ldgea wero washed away. Mr. J'. A. Knight and family, of Ame? lia county. Va.', are removing to tiiuj city, Nu. '914 East Clay Strida,
