Chargé Wilson to the Secretary of State.

No. 8. Montenegrin series.]

Sir: I have the honor to report that the Official Gazette of Montenegro published a few days ago a decree of the Prince authorizing a parliament, which will probably meet next December for the first time, and also granting freedom of the press. Until now the legislative power in Montenegro has been in the hands of a council of state, consisting of the crown prince, the metropolitan, and the members of the cabinet. …

I have, etc.,

Charles S. Wilson.
