The Minister in Switzerland ( Stovall ) to the Acting Secretary of State

6139. Department’s 3447, December 4th, 8 p.m. An unofficial but reliable informant reports that the Montenegrin National Committee which is in general in opposition to the policy of the King has representatives in all large cities of Europe. Chief of the movement is Radowitch at present in Paris. He sent agitators some time ago to Montenegro who convoked a great meeting at Podgoritza which debated question of dynasty. Four-fifths of those present opposed dynasty and advocated union of all Yugo-Slav countries under scepter King of Servia with conservation of local powers. This assembly although not provided for by the constitution was a meeting of the chiefs of all Montenegrin clans and therefore thoroughly representative.
