President Roosevelt In which he will take
Ktrong ground In favor of Immedate and
drastic legislation to correct the evils which
are exposed In the report.
The president had not expected to make
public the report of Commissioner Nelll and
Mr. Reynolds. He felt that Its publica
tion might injure the packing house In
dustry In this country. Primarily the In
formation contained in the report waa ob
tained to be used aa a basis for the legis

agricultural appropriation bill by Senator
Beverldge of Indiana. He did not Intimate
that there would be serious opposition to u
proposition to afford such Inspection of
such meats prepared for domestic consump

for shipment abroad. The meat packers.

Representative Wadsworth of New Tork
called on the president today. Ho Is the
chairman of the agricultural cdmmtttee of
the house to which the proposed amend

president the Intention of the committee to
consider the amendment proposed by Sen
ator Beverldge and adopted, practically
without division, by the senate, and to pre
pare a substitute for It that would "be fair
to all partlea concerned."
The attitude of Mr. Wadsworth was not
satisfactory to the president. In view of
the facts reported to him by Mr. Nelll and
Mr. Reynolds, the president Is of opinion
that immediate legislation of a drastic na

have been developed. He decided, ther

adopted advocating "a reasonable and prac

was contended that to ask the packers

result in a burden upon'" the consumers of

WILLING TO TAKE ANYONE BUT ROSEWATER
While' Prominent Republicans Heed
Editor's Growlnsi Strength. Fonta
nelles Are Ready to Trade
County for Seldsh F.nds.
The announcement that John t Webster
will not get Into the senatorial contest with
a delegation, following closely on the with
drawal of G. W. Wattles and C. J. Greene,
Is taken by politicians to mean they all
have had their ears to the ground and
heard the current of public sentiment turn
ing toward Edward Rosewater. The on!y
other avowed candidate. Senator Millard,
has been In a quiescent state and, so far
as any one knows, no move Is being mad
on his behalf.
Mr. Webster Is said to have written a
letter for publication, which was not given
out, in which he gave several reasons for
his decision. The controlling reason, how
ever, waa stated several times to different
friends. In response to their Inquiries, In
"Why have I decided not to put up a
delegation? What use would there be In
It? I am not going to spend my time and
money going after something that Is out
of reach. The situation here makes It
certain that Rosewater will control Douglas
county, and I am not going to let myself
be used without avail by those who merely
want to oppose Rosewater."
The little bunch of "antls" trying to got
ex-Governor Crotinse Into the field Is bent,
not on making Crounse, but on defeating
Rosewater, and these men admit they do
not care whether the senatorshlp Is re
tained In Douglas county or not. While
Crounae has been nominally making bis
residence In Omaha for two or three years,
he has never been regarded as an Omaha
man, and In all of his political campaign
has been charged up to Washington county,
where he formerly lived. The fact Is not
denied that these "antls" would like to
see the thing shape around so they could
swap the senatorshlp off to some outside
party In exchange for a governorship nom
ination for Charlie Saunders. They have
been looking for some one to finance their
schemes, having previously tried out Mil
lard and Wattles, both without success.

PIERRE, 8. D.. June 1. (Special.)-Btato
Engineer Lea has divided the differen
water divisions of the state Into districts.
Division No. 1. comprised In the countU
of Butte, Lawrence and Meade, Is divided
Into districts designated as Little Mi

it borders. Division No. I Is divided into
districts designated aa Battle creek, Fall
river, South Cheyenne, In the counties of
the southern hills; Kaat Cheyenne and Bad
river In Stanley county, and White river
In Lyman. Nothing haa been done in di
vision No. J, east of the Missouri river, as
nothing has been attempted to bring that

a necessity ever since the law went Into

daughter wore killed. One body was jammed
In the balcony railing and was removed
with difficulty. No. M Mayor street was
surrounded by police who prevented In
gress and egress until they had been
thoroughly searched. A tenant on the third
floor and a young man who waa leaving
the house were among those arrested. The
crowd tried to lynch the prisoners and the
police only prevented It by charging.
Numbers of people hurried to the scene
to seek news of relatives, but they were
not allowed to enter the buildings. The
marquis of Tolosa Ignorant of the death
of his wife, was bne of those who arrived
and the guards at first refused to admit
him. Finally however, he was allowed to
enter and a heartrending scene followed.
Kins; nnd Queen Ride Out.
MADRID, June 1. 1 p. m. King Alfonso
and Queen Victoria appeared at noon In '
an open automobile and rode through th
main thoroughfares without escort. This
unexpected sight caused tremendous en
thusiasm among the crowd, who testified
tholr joy at their majesties' escape from
death yesterday by the wildest ovations..
The king and queen appeared to b calm
and undisturbed. His majesty Wor tha
uniform of a general and smilingly waved
his . hand to th people. There were no
troops in the streets, only a few scattered
mounted civil guards.
The searches made by the police dlsclos
the fact that the author of the outrage
was a man of luxury and wealth. , H left
many valuable and fine clothes behind him
In his hurried flight. He bought a bouquet
of flowers before the attempt and con
cealed the bomb within It. This bouquet
was thrown among the strewn flowers
upon the coach aa a greeting to their ma
jesties. The would-be asassin rented an
overlooking balcony at a fabulous prloa.
The individual arrested this morning and
taken to the Medio Dla police station
closely corresponds with the description of
the author of yesterday's explosion.
Weyler Badly Hurt.
General Weyler was seriously wounded
by the bomb explosion yesterday. Flv of
the woundod are dying.
The magnitude of the attempt on the
lives of King Alfonso and Queen Victoria
Increases. The number ot killed Is now
given at twenty and the wounded at sixty.
During the night thirty arrests were made,
but the person who actually threw the
bomb Is apparently still at large. The
ministry has decided to continue the fetes

Kins' Coolness Marvelous.
The coolness of tne Voung king was
marvelous. On reaching the palace after
the explosion he sent adjutants to assist

Queen Christina, the prince and princess
of Wales and the archduke and sreh
duchess Francis Ferdinand of Austria had
already reached th palace and were wait
ing for th king and queen with th In
fantas. When some time elapsed without
the royal ooach appearing the Prince of
Wales and Infants Theresa, who stood
waiting at tha palace entrance, became
deeply anxious and they were more dla
turbed when they saw the empty coach
arrive with Its bloody horses. But th
royal family were Anally relieved whin
they saw the king and queen arrive. Queen
Christina embraced them and uttered her
deep thankfulness at their escape. Th
Princess of Wales also was solicitous re
garding the victims and asked for In
formation about the fate ot the Marchioness
More Attempts Threatened.
It Is asserted that letters were received
In government quarters laat night saying
this would not be the last attempt, as th
band of conspirators had declared Its In
tention to keep up the effort. This led to
i a discussion of the adjournment of soma
of the main featurea of tho fete In which
the royal family was to be conspicuously
present. The tragic event already has cast
a deep gloom over the festivities. Tho
people no longer show liveliness and
hilarity. There was a magnificent display
of fireworks with street singing and dancing
last night, but they proceeded with lack
of spirit. A pall seems to have fallen over
The proximity o' the coach of Grand
Duke Vladimir of Russia to the royal coach
