ANOTHER PARK AVENUE
Dynamite Blast at Forty-first Street
Injures Workmen Panic in
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
New York, Oct. 2G. Ever since the
big explosion of last winter, folk who
live about the immediate vicinity of
Park avenue and Forty-first street
linve been timid, and every few days
something ballpens In the big pit at
that point to keep them from regaining
a sensaPof security.
There was a blast there yesterday,
which William Bet-shears, in charge of
the work at that point for the Degnon
McLean company, the contractors, says
was all according to programme, but It
landed two men in the hospital, knocked
another senseless, and sent many more
hurrying for courtpraster and arnica,
wliile people from the big hotels and
private houses rushed panle-strleken
Into the streets as the rain of rocks
and timber which followed a tremend
ous report rattled about their domiciles.
Thoy are getting so used to that sort
of thing in the neighborhood that, it is
said, the policeman on whose post the
explosion occurred did not think It
worth while reporting to the West
Thirtieth street station, but word
leached there in a roundabout way, and
the following names of Injured were
GORDON, WILLIAM, MS Amsterdam

Westchester, foreman of laborers;
scalp wound from Hying thnlier, sev
eral ribs broken, and internal injuries
from rock; taken to Now Vork hos
pital, will recover.
Just as the big blast went off car
,25fi of the Madison avenue line had
stopped at the curve of the track from
Park avenue into Forty-second street.
It was crowded, the passengers being
mostly women huppers, and it was
receiving others from the Grand Cen
tral station Several of Its windows
fell in splinters, and there was a mad
rush for the doors amid cries of terror.
Nobody was hurt, but several who
were too scared to move were assisted
from tile car. Policeman Morris of
the East Thirty-fifth street station,
less accustomed to the surprises of tho
subway than his neighbor of tho Ten
derloin, sent word to his station house
where excited citizens hud also hurried,
and under the Impression that there
had been another calamity, reserves
wore sent from there, from the sub
station in the Grand Central station,
and finally from tho West Thirtieth
street station, but there was nothing for
them to do.
The people In charge of tho work In
sisted that no heavier charge of dyna
mite than usual had been used and
that the blast had been properly cover
ed. They were not disposed to talk
much about the matter, but a theory
was advanced thai the explosive had
happened to act upon a weak seam ot
rock at the bottom of the pit, which Is
almost CO feet below the surface.
After a long discussion, Policeman
Klcley of the West Thirtieth street
station arrested Patrick .1, Foley, forty
four years old, of ',Vi Willis avenue,

discharged by Magistrate Brann. lu the

In a Speech Before the Commercial
Club of Chicago He Advocates
Free Trade with the Island of
Cuba as a Means of Extending the
Business of This Country and Pro
moting the Best Interests of the

Monroe Doctrine Applies to Canada
as Well as the Countries of Cen

By 'exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Chicago, Oct. "0. A free trade union
of the rutted States with Cuba, Porto
Itleo, Mexico and Canada against the
nations of Kurope as a means of ex
tending the commercial supremacy of
tho United States was advocated by
General James II. Wilson, of Wilming
ton, Del., in a speech before the Com
mercial club at the Auditorium lust
General Wilson spoke on the subject,
"Our Relations with Cuba," but, after
advocating free trade with the island
as a means of extending the business
of tills country and promoting the best
Interests of the Cubans, he launched
into the broader theme, In which ho
declared he shared In the views of
Speaking of Canada, he said that
free trade should be given to the Do
minion only on condition that It extend
the American tariff wall against Great
Britain. He declared also that tho
Monroe doctrine applied to Canada as
well as the countries of Central and
South America, and should England
ever make its government of the col
onies oppressive, it would bo the duty
of the United States to Interfere.
A Silly Resolution.
The Teller paragraph to the Cuba
resolution passed by congress prior to
the Spanish war, which declared that
the United States would exercise neith
er sovereignty, jurisdiction nor eontr.pl
over the Island was characterized as
"silly" by the speaker. He said that
it had been added only because the
friends of the resolution feared that
thoy would not pass without it. As for
the American occupation of the island
after the Spanish had evacuated it, he
believed that results would have been
better had American troops remained
long enough only to have seen a gov
ernment thrown together inside of six
months, Instead ot staying there three
years. The Cubans, ho declared, were
capable of becoming good citizens and
eventually the island would be nu
nexed to the United States.
"Then why delay this by retaining a
tariff?" ho demanded. "Let us bring
It about as soon as possible by remov
ing the tariff altogether.
"The state of Illinois, for instance,
does not produce a single thing found
In Cuba and neither does Cuba grow
or manufacture a thing made In Illi
nois. It seems to mo to be an Ideal
situation for a free trade agreement."

A Surprising Difference in Favor of
Foreign-Born Young People Is
Shown in Census Figures.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 2G. The census
ofllce bus Issued a statement, giving a
compilation of figures regarding Illit
eracy among children of Immigrants
and children of natives. The state
'"Confining the comparison to chil
dren between the ages of 10 and 14
years In the United states as a whole,
03.0 per cent, of the native white chil
dren of nutlve parents and 09.1 per
cent, of tlie native white children of
foreign-born parents are able to read
and write. This surprising difference
in favor of the children of the foreign
population is due largely to the fact
that the children of the foreign popu
lation live mainly In the Northern and
Western states, where the public school
systems have already reached a high
degree of efliclency, while great num
bers of native white children of native
parents live in the Southern states,
and In that region about 10 per cent, of
such children aro illiterate. When the
comparison is carried out by geogra
phic divisions, the difference between
the two classes in each part of the
United States, except the South Atlan
tic states, is found to be much less
than in the whole country. Yet these
figures indicate that in every region
except the North Atlantic states, the
literate children of immigrant whites
are a larger per cent, of the whole
number of such children than the liter
ate children of native whites are of all
children of native whites. This is part
ly explained by the clustering of the
immigrants and their children mainly
In tho cities and towns, while the na
tive white children ot native parents
live more generally In the rural dis
tricts. Thus, In tho North Atlantic dis
trict there aro 99C.S31 native white chil
dren, 10 to It years of .ago and born
of native parents, of whom 32 per cent,
live in cities, having at least 23,000 in
habitants. On the other hand, among
the 713,170 native white children, 10 lo
11 years of ago and born of foreign
parents who live in the same group of
states, 82 per cent, live in similar cities.
There is no reason to infer from tho
census figures of Illiterate immigrants
aro constituting a permanent Illiterate
class in the pppulutlon.
"It will be noticed, however, that tho
foregoing figures relate exclusively to
immigrants who have been In the
country long enough for their children
born hero to havo reached tho age of
ten years. Whether among the chil
dren of immgrants who have arrived
since 1S90 there is the same eagerness
to acquire at least an elementary edu
cation. It is still too early to determine
from census figures.

Queen Alexandra, the Prince of Wales
and almost all the members of the royal
family, drove to the St. Paul's cathe
dral and offered up thanks for the re
covery of his health, which Jiad enabled
him to be crowned.
The weather was rainy and smull
crowds marked the royal progress
through the metropolis. At Temple Bar
the lord mayor of London and the cor
poration, In bedraggled robes, met tho
king and escorted him to the cathedral.
In the nave of St. Paul's were gath

of tho nobility, almost all the members
of the cabinet, and the foreign ambas
sadors to Great Britain, among whom
was Mr. Choate. The honorable artil

that the- carriages be kept open, and
Queen Alexandra bowed and smiled
from behind a small umbrella.
