IE BARRACK BLOWN UP
Dynamite DemolUhei Building and
KilU Over One Hundred
People.
to
Havana, May 19���Two simultaneous explosions of dynamite believed
consist of over three thousand pounds
m  two   charges,    totally    destroyed
he barracks of the Rural Guards in
the city of Pinar del Rio yesterday.
The roofs and wreckage of the walls
were strewn over a wide area, ruining
many homes and killing or wounding
the inmates. At present, the list of
dead is over a hundred and the number
of those injured is estimated at double
that number. Most of the dead were
soldiers and the entire families of several
of the officers of the guard are among
them. Many of the employees of the
public works department are among the
victims.
Whether the explosion was the result
of an accident, or due to the action of
conspirators has not yet been officially
determined. But the whole district cf
Pinar del Rio has long been a political
hotbed, and there are strong suspicions
that the diabolical act is a demonstration of the animosity entertained
for the president of Cuba.
Soldiers and civilians worked all night
among the ruins, rescuing many
and by nine o'clock this morning had
recovered the bodies of twenty-six
members of the garrison.
The streets of the city are to-day
crowded  with  praying   people   whose
uspicioua credulity leads them firmly
to believe that the explosion was caused
by Halley's comet.
ELECTIONEERS BUSY.
The politicians have had a busy day.
jBoth sides have been  working  hard
(getting in a vote which will be a heavy
lone.   Owing to the fact that there are
three ballots and the four booths being
m the same building there has been a
constant crush at the government buildings.   The voting compartments were
doubled during the morning  and the
officials were handling about 125 votes
Per hour. It will probably  be seven
o clock  this evening  before   the  final
1 results are known.

Some   Information As  To  How  to
Send  Your Money Forward.
As the time has arrived for the making of the second payments on the lots
purchased at the first sale, a word of
advice on how to proceed to make the
payments will be of some assistance
to those unacquainted with finance.
All payments on the lots bought from
the government must be made in
Victoria, and those purchased from the
G. T. P. R., are to be made in Winnipeg.
To make the payment it is advisable
to secure a bank draft payable to the
land commissioner for the full amount
of the remittance, including the amount
of the second payment, with interest
at six per cent on the three deferred
payments. These payments are based
on the original purchase price only.
Along with the draft send a letter
giving the number of the lot or lots,
the number of the block, and the section and number of the contract covering the sale. This precaution will be
of great assistance to the land commissioner and will save those sending the
remittance a great deal of inconvenience
and trouble.
TRAIN DUMPED IN HARBOR
Land Slide Carried Ten Cars and
An Engine Into The Water
KING'S PROTESTANTISM
Church, of i England  Only   Protestantism to be  Recognized
in Throne Speech.
Ross and McCall, who have the contract for the first cut west of Foley .Welch
& Stewart's dock lost ten dump cars and
a dinky engine in the harbor yesterday
morning about 10 o'clock as a result
of a land slide under their dump. The
contractors are dumping the rock into
the harbour, and where the engine with
the loaded cars backed into the dump
the mud bottom of the harbour slid
out carrying the rock, the cars and the
engine with it. Fortunately none of the
dozen employees were injured, although
the engineer had a close call. He was
pulled out through the window of the
dinky as she began to slide after the
cars.
All the cars and the engine are out of
sight. At high tide there is more than
15 feet of water over them, and at low
tide just the smoke stack of the engine
is visible.. Arrangehints are being made,
however, to pull the train out, although
it will take a couple of days to accomplish the feat. Work on the contract has
not been delayed at all as another train
was put into commission.
PROPOSED NEW SEWER
Committee Decided   Where Money
Will be Expended
WATCHING OUR SMOKE.
Rand Tells Vancouver that Growth
of Prince Rupert Is Astonishing
The sewer committee has definitely
decided upon the section or district the
new sewer which is to be built with the
$25,000 advanced by the government,
is to take, although it is not likely the
committee will go further but will hand
over the plans to the new council to
carry out. This is the first part of the
permanent sewer, although it does not
provide for storm water or cellar drainage. The proposed route is as follows:
Beginning at the outlet on the water
front about midway between Seventh
and Eighth streets, it will run across
the water front and First avenue,
through lot 8, in block 10 to the lane in
block 10; thence along the lane to the
easterly side of Seventh street, up
Seventh street to the northerly side of
Second avenue, along Second avenue
to the westerly side of Sixth street, up
Sixth to the lane in block 33 to Fifth
street. The estimates for this does not
require the full $25,000, but there would
not be enough left to construct another
section, so ii will be left until the council
decides on further sewer construction.
KILLED IN AN EXPLOSION
Five Men Lose Their Lives at Hamilton Powder Works
Nanaimo.
THE FUNERAL PROCESSION
Vancouver, May 19.���A special to
the World from Nanaimo this morning
gave the bare facts of a terrible explosion which has just occurred at the
Hamilton Powder factory there. The
despatch reads: A big explosion took
place at the Hamilton Powder works about half past ten this morning. There
is little information as yet obtainable
as to just what haopened, but it is known
that five men were killed. This list
will probably be added to later on.
Of the number of men and girls injured,
no tally has yet been taken. They are
being rescued from the ruins as speedily
as possible. The force of the explosion
may be grasped from the fact that its
violence was felt and heard for a distance of four miles from the factory.
The assizes were on at the time and a
murder jury was being empanelled,
when suddenly the building shook,
doors slammed and windows rattled,
and the dull roar led some to think it
an earthquake visitation. Others thought
it was a heavy charge of street blasting,
until word came of what had really
happened
London, May 19.���It is stated that
instead of modifying the wording of
the declaration which the King makes
on the opening of his first parliament
to the effect that he will maintain the
Protestant religion, the government has
now decided to draft an entirely new
declaration. This is to be Ipositive
instead of negative in character. This
will define protestantism as accepted
by the Church of England only and will
indicate by implication alone the doctrines which the King abjures.
HOLIDAY TO-MORROW.
Provincial Proclamation to Observe
the Burial of King Edward.
An extra of the British Columbia
Gazette contains the proclamation of
Friday the 20th inst., as a day of general
mourning throughout British Columbia as it will be elsewhere throughout the empire, in these terms:
'Whereas Friday, the 20th day
of May, has been fixed for the obsequies
of his late majesty, King Edward the
Seventh; and whereas the said day has,
by his excellency, the governor-general,
been proclaimed as a day of mourning,
to be observed by all persons throughout
the Dominion of Canada; and whereas,
it is considered advisable to appoint by
proclamation, the said 20th day of
May  as a  public  holiday;
'Now, therefore, we have thought
fit, by and with the advice of our
executive council, to appoint the 20th
day of May instant to be a public
holiday, to be observed as a day of
general mourning within our province
of British Columbia.'
I dared
ne closed all day.
More Steam Shovels
The tug Escort No. 2, with the barge
Georgia arrived yesterday afternoon
with six big steam shovels for Foley,
Welch & Stewart. These are being unloaded and will be put into commission
at once.
"In order to appreciate the wonderful development which the whole
northern coast of British Columbia is
undergoing, one has to make a tour of
the pricipal points," remarked Mr. C.
D. Rand to a reporter of the Vancouver
Province. Mr. Rand had just returned
from the North on the Princess May.
having   made   the   trip   in   company
The journey was made in order
with Mr. Drake and Mr. George Turner,
that the members of the party might
get in touch with affairs in the North.
"A man in Vancouver may do his best
to keep informed respecting conditions
in the north, but this trip demonstrated
to me that to have a finger on the pulse
of events north of 51, one has to personally get into the field between that
point and 55," continued Mr. Rand.
"We spent a short time at Stewart,
the new mining town at the head qf
the Portland canal. This place is going
ahead rapidly and as soon as the snow is
off the ground great development is to
be expected in the way of railway construction from the town through the
mining districts. At present the lumber is on the beach for the construction of the wharf approaches to the
terminus of the Portland Canal Short
line,  which is to be built this year.
"The finest of weather favoured us
and  we had a most enjoyable trip."
"We spent two days at Prince Rupert,
and the progress of that city is simply
astonishing. The amount of building
going on there is very large, and the
population is set down at 5,000 to-day.'
Canada, New Zealand and Australia
Rank High in the Royal
Obsequies.
London, May 19.���The three high
commissioners for the Dominions of
Canada, New Zealand and The Commonwealth of Australia, Lord Strathcona,
Hon. A. W. Hall Jones and Sir George
Reid, will be seated together to-morrow, in the great funeral procession,
in the ninth carriage, which will immediately follow that of Colonel Roosevelt
and Louis Pinchot, representing the
United States.
Sir George Reid stated last night that
the arrangements made for the representatives of the great self governing
colonies was in every way satisfactory,
and show a proper conception of the
place  held  by  Canada  and  Australia
in the Empire of whose area they repre-
\ sent  seven   twelfths,  this,   though,   of
j course  being their least of  claims to
I recognition.   The arrangements made by
His Majesty's command will give the
j utmost gratification to our people, said
j Sir George, and added "They are such
; as might be expected from George V.
I who  has  such  a  perfect  personal  acquaintance   with   every   part   of   the
Empire"
Visitors   from   the   Over-seas   States
j have been allotted places in the offic-
i ial enclosure at Hyde Park to witness
1 the progress of the funeral procession.
BRITAIN'S NEW EMPIRE.
On May 31 a new British dominion
South Africa, will celebrate its entry into the league of self-govering
states that constitute British Over
seas dominions. It has been suggested that all the British Empire observe
this day when the Dominion of South
Africa flings its flag to the breeze,
for the first time, by raising their own
flags, and in customary form, mark
this advance in the Empire s might.
The Minister of Education for Ontario has issued instructions to the
schools of that province for the proper observance of this event in the
constitutional expansion of the British
Empire, and it would seem that every
school in the land could do no better educational work and perform no
higher patriotic task than observe
this   South   African   Day   of   Union.
MACKENZIE KING A HERO,
Mackenzie King, the petted but no'
1 spoiled   child   of   furtune,   is   getting
| some   pleasant   publicity   at   present
| because   someone   has   suggested   that
j he   is   the hero   of   Mrs.  Humphrey
Ward's last novel, which has a Canadian'
setting.   The youngest cabinet minister
does not need this fame, and it will not
do him good or harm, but it will help the
novel to sell. Thus cleverly is the social
popularity of a Canadian Cabinet Minister used to increase the sales of a rather
colourless english novel.
ELECTION    BULLETIN.
To-night, as soon as the ballots
have been counted, the Optimist
will issue a Bulletin giving the
result. This Bulletin will be distributed on the street, free of
charge. If you want to know all
about it, see you get one.
Rifle Club For Hazelton.
When Major R. F. Leslie, government inspector of railways, returns to
duty at Hazelton, he will immediately
start the organization of a Dominion
Rifle Association. He has already selected a site for the range along the bank
of the river, but as the land is within
the government reservation, he has had
to apply to the department for permission to use it.
The major believes he can readily
secure fifty members for this volunteer
force as a starter. He is an enthusiastic
rifle man, having been for twenty years
connected with the Indian Volunteer
forces, and has shot in regimental teams
for that period. In 1898 he was captain
of the India volunteer team that competed at Bisley.
MONARCHS     MEET.
London, May 19.���King George met
Emporor William of Germany at the
Victoria station to-day. Both monarchs
were weeping when they embraced and
kissed each other. The Kaiser was
apparently affected most deeply. After
the greetings were over the Kaiser was
driven  to   Buckingham   Palace.
ANOTHER  MELON CUTTING.
London, May 19.���It is believed
in financial circles here that the C. P.
R. board will either pay a higher dividend a few months hence, or issue a
further capital on terms representing
a bunch of substantial bonds to its
existing proprietors. Another melon
cutting, in fact.

'THE TRUCE OF GOD.'
Great Britain's Poet-Laureate Upon
the Death of Edward the
Peacemaker.
LONDON, May 19.���Alfred Austin,
poet laureate, has written the following
on the occasion of the king's death, entitled "The Truce of God," with the
subtitle, 'A King's Bequest.'
What darkness deep as wintry gloom
O'ershadows joyous spring?
In   vain   the  vernal   orchards  bloom,
Vainly   the   woodlands   sing.
Round   royal   shroud
A   mournful   crowd
Is all now left of one but yesterday a
king.
Thrones   have   there   been   of  hateful
fame,
Reared   upon   wanton   war,
He we have lost still linked his name
With   peace   at   home,   afar.
For   peace   he   wrought.
His  constant  thought.
Being how to shield his realm against

From    fateful   feuds   release,
And mindful of his wise bequest.

The sacred truths of God,
The path that points and leads to patriotic   peace.

Edmonton Shows a Steady Growth,
but Rupert Will Soon Catch Up.
TWO APPEALS HEARD
His Honor Judge Young held a court of
revision yesterday morning to hear complaints against the voters' list. Only
two were made and both were women.
Mrs. Fred Button said she took a declaration before George Leek, but her
name was not on the list. The returning
officer did not receive the paper. Her
name was not put on.
Mrs. Mary Kelly took a declaration,
but she discovered afterward that she
was not strictly a British subject,
and she asked to have her name struck
off.    The judge removed her name.
Some illuminating figures are given in
the latest information bulletin published
by F. T. Fisher, secretary of the
board of trade, on May 1st. showing
the remarkable growth of the capital
city of Alberta and the confidence of
the citizens of that town in its future.
For the month of April of the present
year the customs receipts totalled $27,
500 as against $25,779 for the corresponding month of 1909, or an increase
of 7 per cent. For the past month the
building permits aggregated the sum of
$262,196 as compared to $210,890
for April of 1908, showing an increase
of 24 per cent. In bank clearings, to
which all business men look when seeking information as to the growth of a
town, the increase is even more marked..
For April 1910 the bank clearings were
$5,370,145 as against $4,044,055 in
1909, a gain of 33 per cent.. Post office
returns also show an increase of four
per cent, the total for April 1910
being $6,750 as compared to $6,500.
The Edmonton street railway is also
sharing the general prosperity, the number of passengers being carried in the
last month being 261,670 while 152,203
passengers were carried for April 1909.
For the past month the street railway
receipts were $11,345 as against $6,575
for the corresponding month of 1909,
an increase of 70 per cent.

C. H. ORME, Pioneer Druggist
Cor. Second Avenue and Sixth St.
Victoria-Word has reached here that
the department of mines at Ottawa, of
which the Hon. Wm. Templeman is the
head, has completed its arrangements
for the coming season's field work, of
geologists and mining engineers. The
programme provides for operations on
an extensive scale and the results are
bound to prove of considerable importance and benefit to the country at large.
Although the department of mines
was established only three years ago,
it has already performed a great deal
of work, and applications for geologists and mining engineers to invest-
tigate the different regions in which
minerals are supposed to exist are
being constantly received.
This coming season will see a record staff of the Geological Survey
in British Columbia, and the tangible
interest which the government is
manifesting in the minferal resources
of the Pacific province has won the
warm commendation of the mining
men.
Vancouver Island will again be the
field for R. H. Chapman, who will
continue mapping the topography of
the island. This is regarded as a very
important work, and Mr. Chapman is
making gratifying progress.
C. H. Clapp will continue his geological investigation on the southeast
end of the island.
The great activity in mineral development at the head of Portland
Canal has attracted the attention and
interest of Mr. Templeman, who has
instructed R. G. McConnell, a geologist of wide experience in northern
British Columbia districts, to investigate and report upon this region.
D. D. Cairnes will examine the ore
deposits of the Atlin district. Since
the early days of placer mining a
number of mineral veins have been
discovered.
W. W. Leach will continue his explorations in the Hazelton district, on
the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, up
the   Skeena  river.
Chas. Camsell will complete the
geological mapping of the Tulameen
district.
CHARITY or
BUSINESS
��� Which? ���
T^HE germ of both Life and
* Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter-
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the

THE FIGHT IS OVER-LET US GET TOGETHER
The first municipal election contest is practically over and the
electors have made their choice of civic administrators. Whatever
the choice, the citizens should accept it as the wish of the majority,
and British institutions believe the majority should prevail.
To-morrow we enter an era of local government and it behooves all of us to join hands and boost. We may have just differences of opinion at home when elections wax warm, but when we
show a front to the world it must be a unit of faith in our town
and harmony of opinion. Already much valuable time has been
lost in the'strenuosities of the campaign. Energies were used
which might have been utilized to much better advantage, but now
that it is over let us combine forces and go to it with good will
and good cheer.
Those of the candidates who will not meet with the congratulations of victory to-night will probably be the lucky ones, for municipal honors are a big drain on one's business and domestic duties.
At an;/ rate they will breathe a sigh of relief which the victors
cannot enjoy.

NAAS RIVER INDIANS
Were  Riled by  Some Unscrupulous
White Land* Seekers.
Charlts Clifton Perry, Indian agent
of the Nans district is in the city for a
few days. He was hunted up by the
Optimist and questioned regarding the
reported trouble with the Indians.
Mr. Perry was very reluctant to say
anything, because he knew that practically all the trouble was caused by
unscrupulous whites. He said some of
the people who go up into the Indian
territory to stake land are very careless
in their manner and speech to the
Indians. The first man who was turned
back was at Fishery bay. The Indians
had gathered there for the purpose of
fishing. This man went into their camp
to spend the night, something he had no
business to do. He got on intimate terms
with the natives and then started talking too much. He told the Indians they
would have to be careful how they
treated the white men or the whites
would send up a thousand soldiers
and make the Naas river run red with
their blood. This riled and infuriated
the Indians, who replied that they
would declare themselves and go to war
the same as the Boers in South Africa.
They would take up positions behind
rocks and kill the whites as they came
up.
Such   unscrupulous   men   make   it!
very  hard  for decent  white people ot
go up into the district, no matter what'
their mission may be.  They are ordered
back by the Indians..
For some time past the Indians have
had their grievances in the hands of a
firm of solicitors in Toronto. Last year
they contributed $900 towards the expenses   of   having   their   case   placed
before the Government of Canada
and of Great Britain, and this year that
sum has been augmented by $200. The
Indians have been urged by Agent Perry
and others to be law abiding because
a breach of the peace at this time
would only prejudice their case. The
natives desire themselves that their
case should be settled immediately and
amicably, and they are not looking for
trouble. Agent Perry does not believe
that the Indians had any intention of
carrying out any of their threats, but
some white people so misbehave that the
Indians lose their temper,. as would anyone else, and make threats which in
nine cases out of ten they have no intention of carrying out.
At the same time, the natives feel
sore on the land question. There is no
doubt but that those agitators who
quote Lord Dufferin's speech on the land
question and King George IV proclamation as making their title to the land
secure, are making it disastrous for
missionaries working ampng the Indians.
The Indians get filled up with the idea
that the white missionaries are only
the white settlers who are paving the way
for these other men who come in and
take their land. The Indian land question is a very serious one in many ways,
and it behoves the whites to use common
sense and discretion when travelling
in the Indian's country, until the
governments have settled the question
for all time to come.

NEW RANCHING COMPANY.
Vancouver-Prince Rupert Incorporated With Three Hundred
Thousand Capital.
The Vancouver-Prince Rupert Ranching company of Vancouver, has been
incorporated with a capital of $300,000.
It is reported that the new company
is to try the experiment of clearing a
comparatively large tract of land in
such a way that part of it will be put
on the market in the form of ready made
fruit farms, another part in the form of
farms cleared but not planted, and
another part in the form of lands on
which two or three acres out of ten have
been cleared.
JV The result will be watched with interest.   It takes all sorts of settlers to
make a country.   What appeals to one
will not appeal to another,   fume men
with capital would prefer to clear their
land themselves according to their own
plans; some  men   wit h  little  capital
would prefer to clear their land with
their own labour.    But to others, the
idea ot  buying  land   already  cleared,
or both cleared and planted, is likely to
appeal, whether they are in a position
to pay cash in full or whether they
would require to     have the period of
payment spread over a term of years.
In all cases what is in the interests
ot the country is that the land should
be brought under cultivation as soon as
possible.  It is not enough that the land
should  be settled; it should be producing also. Land which is held by settlers
who tor a long time  will not be able to
clear it up and bring it into bearing is
obviously not of so much importance
to tlie country as land that is producing
revenue and creating business.

FORTY   YEARS' GROWTH.
Canada Now Occupies Third Place
in the Commerce of Nations.
For Sale
Comparing the growth of the trade
of Canada with thnt of the principal
countries of the world for forty years,
Canada is found to occupy third place.
The comparison is based on the figurea
for the years 1868 and 1908 respectively. The latter year must be taken as
that is the latest year at which the total
trade of all countries is available.
The comparison, however, shows Japan
in first place, the Argentine Republic
second, and as stated, Canada third..
It may, however, be stated with much
reason that Canada's position is really
better than third place in view of the
fact that forty years ago Japan was just
emerging into the sisterhood of nations
and her foreign trade, therefore, comparatively small, amounting to only a
little over $27,000,000 with a population
at that time of a little over 30,000,000
against Canada's population then of
3,413,000. Japan therefore shows in
the forty years a per capita trade increase of only 8.19, whereas Canada's per
capita trade increase of the principal
countries of the world ot 1908 as compared with 1868 was 73.89
Upon further analysis of the per
capita trade increase of the principal
countries of the world, Belgium stands
first, the United Kingdom second,
Argentine Republic third, Denmark
fourth and Canada fifth.
It is not unlikely that when the figures
are available for all the countries coir/
pared for a later peiod, Canada's relative position will be much higher.
THE MAY QUARANTINED
After the Princess May left here last
week, there developed on board a case
of sickness that was suspected to be
one of smallpox. In consequence of this
if was thought advisable, to avoid
possible risks of infection, to take the
vessel to quarantine. There she was
thoroughly fumigated, but in consequence
of the delay, sailed for this port Sunday
instead of Saturday evening. Every
berth was reserved several days in
advance,  and the boat  was crowded.
SPUR TO  COPPER MINES
A. L. Berdoe, general manager of the
White Pass railway company, was a
passenger on the Princess May. He will
remain in Whitehorse until the opening
of navigation and then proceed to Dawson for the summer. He states that
the spur the company is building to
tap the copper mines near Whitehorse
will be completed this summer, and the
big ore bunkers at Skagway will be
operated to their full capacity.
