NOTES OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Kiama Reporter — 28 August 1886
NOTES OF THE DAY. AnoTrun Bulgarian crisis I Prince Alex ander wont up like a rocket and came down like a stick. A short time ago he annexed Eastern Roumelia to Bulgaria, and after blustering and battling a while hle was, by consent of the Powers, proclaimed ruler for live years. Now, however, his career as a sovereign Ihas been cut short suddenly and unexpectedly. When reviewing his troops at Widdin he was surprised and taken prisoner, the chief agents in the revolution being Karavololl, President of the Council of Ministers, and Zanikoll, Minister of Foreign Alfairs. The whole thing is the result of Russian intrigue, and there is a suspicion that Austria and Gormany knew something of it. Russian intervention is spoken of, and the establishment of a new regime in the lBalkan Peninsula, and Turkey is making vigorous military preparations. The deposition of Prince Alexander is de clared to boe i Russian triumph, but an English reverse. The settlement effected by the European Powers h...
