KING NICK'S f,!E!l PLOT REVOLUTION Want Hin I U-turned to Throne of Montenegro, Bat Entrance of Yanks Cool Their Ardor Xiksiob, Montenegro, June 17". This town and the bills about here are full of revolutionists who are scheming to put King Nicholas 'back on tbe throne of Montenegro. The royalists and nationalists of Monte negro do not take kindly to the idea of their little country's lnclusionein the Jugo-Slav state. The American doughboys who are bringing American food Into Monte negro for the food mission and the American Red Cross Balkan commis sion are well .liked and trusted by the Montenegrins who suspect the motives of the troops of other na tions in the country. The 'Montenegrin, however, Js much like tbe Kentucky mountain eer of old. He dislikes intrusion of any sort and shots (have been fired at numerous power stations which operate the caftle tramway by which the American food la swung through the air from Cattaro to Cettinje. The instinct of tbe Montenegrins to preserve their aloofness from the world dies hard. (Hitherto American flour brought In by the food mission and the Red Cross bad to be laboriously carried over the Loochen road in oxcarts Recently, however, tbe Americans put tbe Hne from Cattaro op to the top of the first pass in good order so that it is now nsed by (he lied Cross for the transport of Hs goods over the first and worst stage of tbe Journey. " Cettinje recently was tbe scene of a revolution to put Nicholas back on the throne and thereby prevent Mon tenegro from becoming part of tbe Jugo-Slav atote. It was a tfoHnre because some of Uncle Sam's dough boys "marched up from Cattaro and neither side cared to tackle tbe Am ertcans. The- revolutionary force of 240 men and their women laid down their arms aid were put to work by the American 'Red Cross. San Francisco, June 16.
