PEACE IN THE BALKANS.
IMPORTANT FACTORS. —— crows prucce's BEinnrciATlOK. BELGRADE, March 26. Two factors hare arisen, suddenly making for peace in the Balkans, firstly, Russia's expressed readiness, as a prelude to the proposed conference, to recognise the annexation by Austria of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and, secondly, the Crown Prince of Servia's sudden renunciation of the Crown in favour of Ms younger brother, and probable voluntary exile for a year. The Crown Prince wrote to the Servian Premier (M_ Velimirovitch), intimating that this decision was due to unjust insinuations, based upon an unfortunate occurrence. The occurrence mentioned by the Crown Prince of Servia related to the death in the State hospital of one of his grooms. The Crown Prince is openly accused of homicide, it being alleged that he kicked the man in the stomach, and thus caused his death. THE TRITE EXPLANATIOIf. PLOT TO SETHROKE KING PETER. (Received 8.5 a.m.) ; BELGRADE, March 26. Other versions of the Crown Prince's renunciation declare that the discovery of a military conspiracy among the Crown Prince's friends against King Peter is thetrue explanation. The news has created a tremendous sensation in Servia, not unmixed with, relief. The Servian Cabinet has issued a statement that it is incompetent to deal with the Prince's renunciation when he decides upon it. The injuries which resulted in the death of the Prince's groom were due to a fall downstairs. The post mortem prfor to the inquest failed to reveal any internal injuries, and Cabinet considers an investigation needless.
