OHUJAXS, April 6.— Fifteen people were killed and buried in tho ruins of the building blown to pieces by the explosion early Friday morning. As near as can be judged the disaster occurred at 2:05 o'clock and took place in the powder-room of Charles J. Salathe's grocery and ship chandlery store. The store and a saloon adjoining also owned by Sulatho are reduced to ruins and Salathe, his wife and one child, together with three servants, a clerk and an orphan boy, who lived with them, were killed. Itodlei Kecov«ired. ' The first bodies taken from the ruins •were those of Salathe and his wife. They were badly bruised. The French market was just being opened, and the men who sell fish and other food 'were unloading their wagons. Some of them had gone into the saloon to drink, and the barkeeper, Felix Rego, and five or six people who were drinking there are under the debria. Injured by Flylujr Dcbrl*. Splinters, bricks, pieces of timber and other material were scattered on the market, damaging that, and the windows in Sarrazin's tobacco factory, adjoining, were shattered. More than six men who were in the streets were slightly injured by flying particles. Emile Boulet, the owner of the bar-room, had stepped across the street for a moment and was in the market when the. explosion occurred, thus saving his own life. Two of the children of the groceryman were miraculously saved. One, a little girl named Lillie, was found in the debris in a different section of the ruins from her brother Eddie. Both children were slightly scratched. Eddie was in a back room, while his mother, father and the baby were sleeping in the room in front. The Killed. A soon as the fire which followed the explosion had been extinguished, a j>arty of searchers went to work to find tho bodies of the dead. The killed: Charles J. Salathe, Mrs. C. J. Salathe, two of Salathe's children, Joseph Grin- "aldi, Felix Regaud, barkeeper; Mike Diri, James Edwards, three servants, ono boy. C:iaK«> of l^xploxion. The cause of the explosion is unknown. Salathe kept a hirge quantity of powder, which he sold to fishermen and hunters. While the police are inclined to believe that the explosion w;is the result of an accident a number of people residing in the vicinity of the wrecked buildings are of an entirely different opinion. They state openly that the explosion was an attempt 'to kill the man I'.onlei, who had such a miraculous escape. . Work of tho Mil I) 11. Boulet is a Frenchman who two years ago shot and killed one of the wealthiest Italians doing business in the vicinity of the- French market. This man, Aristide Balestraci, suc- .ceedcd in winning the affections of Boulet's wife, and this led to an encounter, in which Balestraci was killed. Ever since then Boulet has been looked upon as a marked man. His friends tried to persuade him to leavo the city, or at least to stay away from the market, but he refused. Thursday night he occupied a room in the barroom on the second floor, and it is believed that tie explosion was done for the simple purpose of killing him. That he escaped is looked upon as a miracle. Balestraci was a leader in the Italian • colony. So was a man of great influence, and was just the sort of an individual to be at the head of a Mafia organization. Between England and Venezanlm Alon*. LONDON, April 5.— The foreign office, in answer to inquiries, replies that there ia nothing to be said in regard to the Venezuelan situation.
