1895 - THE EXPLOSION AT NEW ORLEANS.

News
New Orleans, April 6. - At this writing but four bodies have been recovered from the ruins of the explosion which took place from some unknown cause at the corner of Decatur and Ursuline streets, in a two-story brick building containing two stores and rooms on the ground floor.

One of these was occupied by EMILE BOULET as a drinking saloon; the other by CHARLES SALATHE, who keeps a grocery and ship chandlery.
The bodies found are those of CHARLES SALATHE and his wife, FELIX RIGOT, a barkeeper, and JAMES EDWARDS, employe of a fish stand.
The last body recovered was that of the babe of SALATHE. Two other children were slightly hurt, but it seems that none else was injured.
The cause was accidental.
