Parliament Selects Prince Peter
# v Without Opposition.
NO DISSENTING VOICE IS RAISED.
Karageorgevitch Receives the News
$ , ' and Wires Acceptance of Throne.
' ' Amnesty Is Granted Murderers of
Belgrade , Juno 1C. With scarcely
. ; . . - ' the excitement which marks an ordl-
' 'L ' ' \ nary fete day in the- capital , Servla In-
- * i \ Btltuted a now dynasty. Within less
than two hours from the meeting in
the wing of the royal palace , where
King Alexander tttul his iiucen were
shot down , the senuto and skupshtlua
K * , w had legally and with duo formality
! * elected Prince Peter Karageorgovltch
' king of Sorvla and hud notified him by
telegraph of the fact.
The ceremony o. electing the king
f Jwas conducted in the Sales des Fetes ,
\i \ \ which had boon beautilully arranged
- ' the occasion. The metropolitan of
Belgrade and the bishop of Nish , in
their full robes of olllco , lent the sanc
tion of their presence. The members
of the provisional government and the
presidents of the chamber sat at the
head of the white and gold decorated
hall , among them Colonel Alexander
Maschin , Queen Draga's cousin , and
now minister of public works , in full
military uullorm , while below were
grouped the members of the senate
and the skupslitina.
The formal motion that Prince Kara-
georgovitch be elected king of Servla
was moved by a radical deputy named
Neschlts , who was attired in the na
tional costume. Immediately a shout
arose from the assembly of "Long live
Karageorgevitch. " Each member was
then called by'uamo and rose quietly
from his seat and gave his vote for
"Peter Karageorgevitch. " There was
absolute unanimity , no other name but
that of Prince Peter being pronounced.
The result was greeted with loud
The following telegram to the gov
ernment was received from the new
king : "The splendid proofs of devo-
from my beloved people , my faithful -
ful army and patriotic government ,
have deeply touched me. Prom the
bottom 'of a true Servian heart , 1
_ thank Providence , which has vouch-
f * ' . ' safed me , by God's mercy and through
' Ills will , to ascend the throne of my
\ famous ancestors. I beg you , the pre-
i ' mler and your colleagues In the gov
ernment , to accept my royal acknowl
edgment , with the assurance of my
particular good will. "
The resolutions adopted by the na
tional assembly have practically
granted immunity to all concerned in
the coup d'otat.
The day's proceedings on the whole
were characterized by singular Im-
passlvenosB. Only In the unreserved
admiration for Colonel Maschin and
the other conspirators could it be seen
that the event was eminently popular.
( The town is full of unsavory gossip
concerning the late queen and there
is not n scintilla of sympathy for the
murdered royal couple.
Belgrade , June 15. Complete order
prevails In Belgrade and absolute
quiet is reported throughout Servla.
The capital wears a much more peace
ful aspect. The military have been
Svlthdrawn from public olliccs and only
a few sentries uie now guarding the
royal palace. The streets of this cap
ital bear an animated appearance , be
ing crowded with officers and a large
number of students , who have arrived
from abroad. It is believed , with the
object of demonstrating in favor of
Prince Peter Knnigeoigevilch as king
Some republican tendencies are
notable among ( he students who have
studied In France nnd Switzerland.
These latter , however , arc quite over
shadowed by the opinion of the majorIty -
Ity and there seems to bo no doubt
that the national assembly will today
pronounce in favor of u monarchy ,
and elect Prlnco Karageorgevitch.
ffhe newspapers continue to point out
the impossibility of the establishment
of a republic and advocate the elec
tion of Prlnco Karageorgevitch in or
der to assure a brigther epoch in Ser-
The foreign representatives in Bel
grade continue to maintain an air of
* trlct reserve.
At conference of senators and dep-
htios It was unanimously decided that
the constitution voted by the great
'assembly in 1888 should be put into
force and that Prlnco Peter Kara-
eeorgevltch should bo unanimously
elected king at today's mooting of the
kupshtlna and senate. After the
election n deputation of the assembly
iwlll bo sent to await on Prince Peter
find communicate to him the decision
pf the national assembly.
After the election of the king , the
Bkupshtlna will draw up a program
ol prou-duro for the now Rovcrt-lgn
mill will tliL'ii adjourn until the arrival
of tl'o King nt Bolgtado. The sovor-
xn will then form u new ministry
and dissolve the skupshtlna. The
government has pardoned all persons
linpilHuncd for political and press off -
f 'HBo and ordered their Immediate
roluiibo. No an cats have occurred
nor have any sentences been passed
since the tragic events of last Thurs
day. The court of cassation and the
appeal coutt nusp rrded thulr Bitting
fiom that time ,
Prlnco Karagcorgovltch. although
little Is known of him among the pco.
plo generally hero , seems to have
caught the public fancy nnd his elec
tion will be n popular one.
Former Queen Natalia has tele
graphed to her former lady-ln-wnltlng
to make Inquiries whether she will bo
permitted to come to Servla and visit
her son's grave. Lieutenant Colonel
Zlvnnovlcs of the general staff com-
milted BUlcldo by shooting himself.
It Is understood that the officer took
his life because among the late king's
papers was found a letter from Zlvan-
ovtrs Informing him of the plot
against his life.
WAITERS' SPURN ARBITRATION.
Strike In Chicago Is Still Far From
Chicago , June 10. The combined ef
forts ot President Gompers of the
American Federation of Labor and
half u dozen of the most prominent la
bor leaders In Chicago to bring about
a pouyc'Hil adjustment of the hotel and
restaurant strike were unavailing.
The Joint board of the strikers' unions
ret used all overtures lor peace and the
work ot calling strikes will be contin
ued. Moves were made from three di
rections to influence the strikers to ar
range for a settlement of the strike
by arbitration. Secretary Drlscoll of
the Associated Teaming Interests told
the strikers' representatives that they
must meet with the hotel keeper s' as
sociation and talk arbitration. Presi
dent Morton of the stationary fire
men's union appeared before the gov
erning body of the strikers nnd gave
the entire board the same advice.
Both these unlooked-for developments
came at a time when the joint council
had started out t'/.rec committees on G
crusade against every restaurant and
hotel In the city that had not signed
the union scale. This pressure from
the outside unions resulted In the call
ing off of the strike committees , and
afte. ' the employes had been ordered
out In five restaurants , the Joint coun
cil asked for a conference with Presi
dent Gompers to listen to his plans
for settling the trouble. The board
heard moro arbitration talk from Pres
ident Gompers , but his advice was

A report from lone , seventeen rnllos
from Heppner , status that 300 bodies
have been recovered. A messenger
who arrived at lone states that a wal'
of water twenty feet high , rushed
down Into the gulch In which Hoppncr
Is situated , nnd carried everything before -
fore It. The flood canro with such sud
denness that the Inhabitants wcro mm-
bio to seek places of Hafety and were
carried down to death by the awful
rush of water. Almost the entire resi
dence portlorr of the town was wiped
out , but some of the business part ,
which Is on higher ground , escaped.
Hugo boulders , weighing a ton , were
carried down by the current and many
people killed by being dashed against
the rocky bluff. Early In the afternoon
a thunder storm occurred , covering a
wide region of country , and later a
heavy rain storm set Irr , marry of the

As soon as possible after the terrible
flood subsided the work of relief was
commenced by the citizens o/ the
town. Dozens of bodies were found
lodged along the bends of the stream
and in several places they wcro piled
over ono another. The buildings
which were not carried away were
moved from their foundations or top
pled over. Hundreds of horses , cattle ,
sheep and hogs that had gene Into the
creek bottoms for water perished.
News of the calamity did not reach
the outside world until morning , all
the means of communication having
been cirt off. As soon as possible
news was sent by courier to the near

Navigation company started a relief
train from The Dalles with a party of
100 , Including doctors , nurses and sup
plies of all kinds. The citizens of
Portland started a relief fund as soon
as the news of the disaster spread

but with no loss of life , the inhabi
tants having time to save themselves
from the surging torrent.
At lone considerable damage was
done to buildings , though no loss of
life Is reported from there.
A horseman rode ahead of the flood
nnd warned the people of Lexington

itants had not tlmo to get out of its
path. Brick and frame buildings were
whirled down stream for two miles
nnd many bodies were found along the
bank. The residence portion suffered
most. The Heppnor hotel was carried
away , but the Palace hotel was left

Defense In Marcum Trial Spring Alibis
for the Prisoners Men Charged
With Setting Fire to Ewcn Hotel
Held to Grand Jury.
Jackson , Ky. , Juno 1C. The second
week of court In Ilreathltt county
opened with a reign of teiror. While
the petit jury continued hearing testi
mony In the murder charge agalnsl
Curtis Jett and Thomas White , the
grand Jury was hearing evidence In
the cases of Joseph Crawford and Edward -
ward Tharp , teamsters for the Hargls
brothers , who are held without bond
on the chnrgo of arson for burning
the Ewen hotel. The small force of
state militia was overworked again in
serving summons for witnesses. Judge
Redwlno divided his time between
the murder and the arson cases. Early
in the morning , before court convened ,
be heard the habeas corpus cases of
Crawford and Tiiarp and afterward , at
different times , excused the trial Jury
while he gave instructions to the
In his a I'.ress to the grand Jury ,
Judge Ilcdwlno charged them to in
vestigate the burning of Ewen's ho-
tel. Ho was very forceful In Jits
charge , saying that arson was next
to assassination. He said It was doubt
ful If life and property was over so
Insecure In a civilized country as it is
in Breathltt county.
The defense In the murder case
opened with a statement that it would
prove an alibi , and introduced both
Curtis Jett and Thomas White on the
witness stand in their own behalf to
testify that they did not enter the
court house until after J. B. Marcum
had been shot down. Both prisoners
made exceptionally good witnesses for
themselves. Jett was asked what he
had said to Mrs. Johnson on meeting
her after Marcum had been killed. He
replied : "I said to her that she could
not lay this on me ; that every time a
man was killed , they said I did it. " % .
Jett testified that at the time of the.
shooting his right hand was so badly
swollen that ho could not have pulled
a trigger. He said ho had had a finger
amputated two weeks before.
Thomas White , the other defendant ,
testified that when the shots were
fired that ho was one-third of the way
across the street. Ho looked back
