by a tropical hurricane from the Gulf

Varying reports placed the death
list at from twenty-five in Corpus

later figure included reports of
bodies recovered in Neucus bay on
which Corpus Christi is situated.
Property damage in Corpus Christi

$4,000,000 while many cities and
towns along the coast in the vicinity
of that place also suffered heavily.
Corpus Christi, Texas., Sept 15.—
There were reports here tonight that
the bodies of more than 125 persons
had been recovered in Corpus
Christi and Neuces bay, but this
could not be confirmed at midnight,
and officials here were inclined to dis-
credit the reports.

era America is now entering upon,
and pointing out some of the prob-
lems that are confronting us as a
country. "Never before in the his-
tory of our nation," he said, "was it
so important that the affairs of the
country should be administered by
100-per cent Americans, for it was
very apparent that the spirit of Bol-
shevism was rampant, and the for-
eign element within our gates would
wreck us unless proper methods were
taken to curb and control them.
While our boys were fighting in
France to save the world for Democ-
racy, and getting a measley per diem
for so fighting and dying, these Bol-
shevists were profiteering on the
hardships of the soldiers, demanding
and receiving from the government
itself wages that were out of all
reason compared with those receiv-
ed by the soldiers, and we are now
reaping what we have sown." lie

Heavy Tidal Wave.
The damage was caused mostly by
the tidal wave driven in from the
north by a gale estimated at from 65
to 70 miles an hour. The official rec-
ord of the tide places it at 10 feet six
inches deep .but many say the water
was 15 feet in dept on the beach.

the business section were flooded,
