ed in cordial terras. The Austrian,
minister has resnmed official relations
with the Servian government.
Kin? Peter had a reception. Only
two foreign diplomats, the Russian and

ether countries apparently were will
inz to recognize Kins Peter, but not
the Servian cabinet in which Colonel
3Iichhn. one of the chief conspirators,
holds a portfolio.
The king's reappointment of the
ministry is regarded as equivalent to
a notification that 20 punishment will
be meted out to the assassins of King
Alexander and Queen Draga.
Foreign Minister Kalievics has sent
a circular to the Servian representa
tives abroad explaining that the tone
appointed the cabinet because he con
sidered that he could not do better
than entrust the zovemment to the
men in. whom parliament had a few
days am expressed its full confidence.

PETER CAINS A FIRMER GRASP
TO BE A RULER II FACT
With Loud Applause the People Greet
Him as He Kisses the Holy Soak
Is Now the Ruler of All the Ser
vians. BELGRADE It was remarked on
all sides Thursday that King Peter
seemed hourly to assume a more com
manding attitude, and that he gains
a firmer grasp on affairs. His de
meanor when he took the oath and
the expression on his face showed
masterfulness and his intention to be
a""kmg in" fact, "as well as in name,
ruling unflinchingly as well as justly.
The demonstrations Wednesday even
ing apparently convinced him that he
is not merely the elect of the military
or a civilian faction, but that he had
the people at his back. The proceed
ings Thursday were marked by solem
nity The old parliament building, s.
bare, bam-like strucrure, with fiimsy
decorations, was crowded with repre
sentatives, official, clergy and civilian
spectators, who loudly cried. "Long
live the King," as he appeared. The
king glanced sharply almost sternly,
at the deputies, some of whom were in
peasant garb, while others were dress
ed in the height of western fashion.
Taking a seat in front of the throne.
over which his own portrait hung,
the king watched with calm assurance
for the ceremony to begin.
Lighted candles had been placed on
a table in rront of the king, on which
also rested a nchly-bound 3ible, the
text of the oath on engrossed parch
ment, and the jeweled cross.
King Peter stood erect while the
metropolitan proceeded with the reli
gious ceremony, the responses to
which were chanted by the presby
ters. When the prayers were ended,
the king kissed the Bible, and then
took the oath. When he had finished,
his majesty advanced amid profound
silence cf the assemblage and signed
his name to the document. A frenzy
of cheers followed. The king again
kissed the Bible and the cross proffer
ed by the metropolitan and without
the slightest relaxation of the stern
lines of his face, turned quickly en his
heel and walked out to his carriage,
amid salvos of cheers, which also
greeted him as he passed through the
streets to the parade grounds, where
the troops were awaiting.
! HANNA IS NOT A CANDIDATE.
Reiterates His Declaration that He Is
Not After Vice Presidency.
CLEVELAND in an interview
Senatcr M. A. Hanna reiterated his
recent statement that he was not and
would not be a candidate for the vice
presidency and if his nomination was
made that he would decline to accept.
He said further that his ambitions did
not lie in that direction of the White
House and nothing could induce him
to alter his decision in the matte
Colonel Myroii T. Herrick. whose
name also has been mentioned in con
nection with the vice presidency, said
that his sole political ambition was to
be elected governor of Ohio. Colonel
Hemck thinks that the present dis
cussion relative to a vice presidential
nomination is inopportune.

Chief Executive Suggests that if
Necessary Special Lawyer Be
Named to Probe Scandal and Secure
Conviction of the Guilty.
WASHINGTON. The president has
sent the following letter to the at
"WHITE HOUSE. June 22. 1303.
Sir: As you know, the charges in
connection with the postoffice depart
ment are now being investigated by
Fourth Assistant Postmaster General
Bnstow, who has placed at his dis
posal by the postmaster general every
resource of the department, including
the services of Mr. Robb. whom you
detailed from the department of jus-
uce to the postoffice department im
mediately after the removal of Mr. ,
As a result of tnis investigation a
number of indictments have already
been found and it is probable that
other indictments will be hereafter
asked for. There can be no greater
offense against the government than
a breach or trust on the part of a
public official or the dishonest man
agement of his ofiice. and. of course,
every effort must be exerved to bring
offenders to punishment by the utmost
rigor of the law.
"The district attorney cf the Dis
trict of Columbia has faithfully and
zealously seconded the effo-ts of the
postoffice department m this matter,
but the amount of work in the office
is such as to make it difficult, with
out neglecting other important public
duties, to devote all the time neces
sary to the prosecution of these cases.
"I suggest, therefore, that if you
cannot detail some of your present
staff, you appoint special assistants
in these postoffice cases, not only to
take up the cases in which indictments
have been found or hereafter may be
found, but to examine mcu all charges
that have been made against officials
in the postal service, with a view to
the removal and prosecution of all
guilty men in the service and the pros
ecution of guilty men. whether m the
service or not, where the cases are
not barrea by the statute of limita
tions. Sincerely yours,

gestion. Attorney General Knox has
appointed Charles Bonaparte of Bain-
