Alleged Want of Men, Very Few Have Gone From Iowa and It Is Not Expected that Stricken City Will Drain Laborers From the East. Despite press announcements that there was a great demand in San Francisco and surrounding towns for all kinds of labor for rebuilding the ill-fated cities, local labpr conditions have not in the least been affected by the earthquake ind Are, and the rail roads say that few laborers and me chanics are being taken west from any part of the country. The first call for help was made while .the ruins of San Francisco wese still smouldering, and left the irepres sion that mechanics and laborers of all kinds could find work in great quantity and at high wages by rush ing to the city at once. This, it has been found, was largely due to the first frenzied demand for men to as sist In rushing up temporary struc tures for the resumption of business, and has not really continued to the ex tent that was anticipated. The em ployment agencies and labor bureaus in Iowa are a unit in the opinion that it will be some time before there will actually be any need of new men for the trades In the west, and do not ex pect that the rebuilding of San Francisco will at any time cause a serlouse drain on the labor conditions in the east. Several managers of state employ ment agencies have stated that at first there were many inquiries from men who had partially made up their minds to strike west at once. No call came from San Francisoo, however, and the men were discouraged as generally as possible from rushing to the city which is already over crowded. Not Building Yet. Men who have returned from San Francisco say that in spite of best ef forts of business men of that city, it will be several months before the ac tual rebuilding will begin. Here and there individual structures will grow with the rapidity of mushrooms, but the general rebuilding will be gradual Nothing so far has been done except to remove the debris from the sites of ruined buildings. Thousands of men now in San Fran clsco are waiting for the change to get work, and there will "be no dearth of labor for many months. In fact, it will be far harder to secure the materials needed for rebuilding than It will be to get the men to build them... It is thought that the great exodus from San Francisco was composed mostly of the trades rather than the mechanic classes. Small shopkeepers, clerks and business men have left the city, while the laboring men and me chanics have remained. Others have gone from the east as individuals, but the testimony of railroad officers that thereh as been a concerted movement of laborers towards the west is proof tiiat San Francisco will for a long time be left to care for itself in regard to its own labor situation. CUBA STANDS BY SAVIOUR. British Treaty Is Confirmed as Amend ed to Suit United States. Havana, May 31.—The senate last evening ratified the Anglo-Cuban treaty of com'merce, navigation and industry as amended by the foreign relations* committee May 13. The vote was 11 to 4. The opponents to the amendments declared that Great Bri tain would not accept the treaty its amended form, while the advocates of the amendments insisted that there was no reason for Great Britain not accepting it. These latter declared that the friendship of the United States was the first consideration in any event. EMERY FOR GOVERNOR. Lincoln Republicans of Pennsylvania Nominate Ticket.

All this happened so quickly that people away from the Immediate vicin ity were not aware of the .tragedy, that had been enacted, and continued to ac claim their sovereigns. Soon, how ever, there appeared the empty royal coach with two horses missing and the others spattered with blood, several of them bleeding from wounds. The grooms and drivers looked deathly pale in their spangled uniforms. Then came a boy shouting that a bomb had been "thrown at the king. The appearance of the king and queen in a coach brought out delirious ovations. The fact was recognized that the sovereigns had been spared. Not Aimed at Vladimir. Soon after the explosion it was re ported that the bomb was not intend ed for the king, but for the Russian Grand Duke Vladimir, who was sup posed to be one of the imperial guests of the wedding. The report proved to be unfounded As a curious coincidence it is just a year ago yesterday that a bomb was thrown at King Alfonso in Paris. As the king, accompanied by President Loubet, was driving away from a gala performance at the opera May 31, 1905, an anarchist threw a bomb at the royal carriage. It struck a trooper of the Cuirrasier escort tfri tne shoulder, fell to the ground, and exploded without in juring the king or thje president, who continued their drive) to the Palais d'Orsay.
