"Piinco Alexander was deposed bv

allowed to enter or leave Bulgaiia. The tele
graph lines , tlm dispatch adds , have
all been stopped trom operation The
story of deposition is as follows :
Karavclolf , piium minister , entered
tlm palace at Sophia ami explained to Alex-
antler that public opinion of Bulgaiia was
dissatisfied with his policy and demanded
his disposition. The piince said : " 1 see no
fi lends , I cannot resist. "
Ao nubile meellng has been held iu Solia

tion of tlm change of tlm government was ic-
celvcd with favor. Tlm people lejoiceover
the coup w lileli they say ended an intolerable
situation. Tlm Bulgarians aie puisuadcd
Itussla will now assist them to
consummate a union which they think
It was Tin key's ' design to
fiushate. Alexander wr.s taken complete
ly by surprise. lie was astonished at tlm
Midden liu'sting ' of tlio plot upon him. Kara-
\elol1 had managed tlm whole allair ( with
such koniecy that the only indication of tlm

oideied the eiicnlatlon of papers among .mm
which openly declined that he alone was the
