Washington, sept. 30. Pensacoia.
Kla., was not seriously damaged by
the Indian hurricane, but a number of
merchant vessels were driven ashore,
although the storm was of exceptional
violence. This information, the first
to reach the outside world from Pcn
eacola since Friday afternoon, when
communication was cut off, came to
the Navy Department today from the
Pensacoia Navy-yard radio station.
Damage to the Navy-yard was es
timated at $100,000.
Seaplane Ecle Damage.
The Department summarized its dis
patches as follows:
"The Navy Department has received
a report from the Pensacoia Navy-yard
which states that the estimate of the
damage done by the hurricane is about
JlOO.noo. The electric railroad between
the Navy-yard and the city of Pensa
coia was badly damaged. The damage
to the seaplanes at the Naval Aero
nautical Training Station was compar
atively slight. The entire roof of the
general stores building was blown off.
"Damage in the villages of Warring
ton and Woolsey was slight outside
the complete destruction of the Epis
copal Church and the practical demo
lition of the T. M. C. A. building.
Vessels Driven Asbore.
"Reports from the city of Pensacoia
tate that the damage there was not
great, although a number of merchant
vessels were driven ashore and the
hurricane was of exceptional violence."
PENSACOLA. Fla.. Sept. 30. (By
wireless to New Orleans.) Pensacoia

ing last Friday of one of the most ter
rific tropical hurricanes that ever
struck this section with no loss of life
reported and with comparatively small
property damage, considering the
Many Houses Vn roofed.
For about eight hours Friday this
city and nearby territory were at the
mercy of the wind's fury, which blew
for several minutes at the rate of 100
miles an hour. An accurate estimate of
the property loss was not available to
day, but considerable damage was done
along the waterfront to wharves and
piers and a number of vessels, mostly
of small size, were blown ashore,
though apparently not seriously dam
aged. In the city tbe principal damage
appeared to be roofs, porches, plate
glass windows and frailer frame struc

NEW ORLEANS. Sept. 30. That the
casualty list from the West Indian
hurricane which last Friday swept the
gulf coastal sections of Eastern Louisi
ana. Mississippi, Alabama and Western
Florida would not exceed five killed
and might be lower was indicated to
night when wireless advices received
from Pensacoia said there had been no
loss of life in that vicinity.
Reports of Fatality Unconfirmed.
Reports from Houma. La., stated that
nine fishermen who Saturday were re
ported drowned in Sister Lake had been
located. Saturday's reports from Do
than, Ala., to the effect that five per
sons had been killed at Crestview, Fla.,
could not be confirmed tonight.
Word came from Blloxi that one of
the four fishing schooners, for the -safety
of which fears were entertained
Saturday, had returned undamaged.
Three schooners and a powerboat still

In the primer of each rifle cartridge."
Victory Maat Come Thronnrh Military.
It -was Mr. Gerard, recalled when
America entered the war, who first
brought to this country an accurate
appraisal of Germany's economic plight.
Since then, in various ways, he has
endeavored to keep in touch with the
food situation. It Is his belief that,
while food is scarcer than ever in
Prussia, that those who strive against
CSermany must not count upon starva
tion as an ally.
"I have talked with a number of
South American and Central American
diplomats who are familiar with condi
tions In Germany, since my return." Mr.
Gerard said. "Although the food situa
tion is. getting worse. I think they'll
anage to last. It is futile to expect
victory through food starvation or
revolution. We and the allies must
make up our minds to beat them In a
The monty that has financed German
arms has been raised almost entirely by
war loans, Mr. Gerard states. Subscrip
tions are voluntary, through moral
pressure and,' for the most part, are
made by savings banks, large corpora
tions and Insurance companies. The
ineome tax has not been resorted to.
Greenback Money la leaned.
Two kinds of money are in circula
tion. One of trje8e is supposed to be
based upon a gold reserve. Of the
other the Germans admit that it is
nothing but greenbacks, and nobody
seems to know how many are out
standing. The latter purports to be
Issued against any property, real or
personal, of the German people.
So fatigued is Mr. Gerard by the de
mands of his speaking Itinerary that
he refused all proffers of entertainment
yesterday morning and afternoon, and
remained in his room at the Hotel
Portland. Last night he was the guest
of honor at a banquet tendered him by
the Arlington Club.
"I'm sleepy," he yawned. in the
progress of an interview. "It doesn't
seem that I d ever catch up."
Shortly before noon today Mr. Gerard
win be escorted from the Hotel Port
land to the Auditorium by President
Charles E. Cochran and his fellow com
mitteemen of the Rotary Club. The
address will begin promptly at noon.
It will be .an extemporaneous discus
sion by Mr. Gerard of Germany's In
trigue against America, and will con
stitute one of the most remarkable
and pertinent messages brought to the
Pacino Northwest since America's en
listment in the great war.
No Women to Be on Roetrnnt.
The committee in charge announce
that no one will be admitted to the
rostrum after the arrival of Mr. Gerard
at the Auditorium, and that no women
willbe admitted to the rostrum, owing
to the fact that Its seating capacity
already has been exhausted by invita
tions Issued to prominent men of the
city and state.
The doors of the Auditorium will
open at 11 o'clock. No reservations of
seats will be made, and the committee
urges the prompt attendance of all
who desire to hear the distinguished
speaker. The addresses of introduc
tion will be curtailed to the briefest
possible time, and the entire noon
hour will be devoted to Mr. Gerard's
message. It Is confidently anticipated
that at least 5000 citizens will be
present at the mass meeting and re
ception. Mr. Gerard Leaves Tonight.

MILLION BUSHELS SOLD
WALLA WALLA REPORTS SALES OF
PAST THREE DAYS,
C. L. MeKensle Advances Opinion That
Farmers Who Sold Before New
Basic Price Lose Difference.
"WALLA WALLA, Wash., Sept, 30.
Although official readjustment of
prices has not yet been announced
here, 1.000,000 bushels of wheat has
been sold in the past three days, club
bringing $1.93 and bluestem $1.97.
About 50,000 bushels Of feed barley
also was sold today and brought $51
a ton, a record price here.
C. L. Mclenzie, president of the Col
fax National. Bank, who was chairman
and spokesman of the Northwest farm
ers' committee which visited Wash
ington, D. C. and secured a new basio
wheat price for Pacific Coast grain
terminals, after conferences with
President Wilson and Food Adminis
trator Hoover, is the first of the com
mittee to return home, and In an in
terview while here today, stated it was
his opinion that farmers who sold be
fore the new basic price was fixed must
lose the difference between it and the
former price based on Chicago quota
If so, this will mean many thousands
of dollars loss to the Northwest farm
ers, as 1.000,000 bushels was sold
here alone. He also stated the 1918
price was fixed at $2 to the farmer at
the nearest warehouse, but that Mr,
Hoover claims the law cannot be so
administered and will have to be
amended so that basic prices are fixed
at the terminals, as now.

IN TEXAS. Sept. SO. (Special.) Al
thogh the troops have been traveling
for 28 hours, the Third Oregon troop
train is yet going across the "Lone
Rli," .tatn inH still th rrv ifl. "Ts
vervhbdv hanov? Yea. Bo! Is anv-
body sorry? Hell, no!"
San Antonio had an hour and a half
of the Third Oregon and at the same
time the Oregon soldiers marched
through the city streets and paid brief
homage to the world-famous Alamo.
It was a great treat to the negro
population and also to the white folks,
for the Oregon soldiers, headed by the
Regimental Band, marched from the
station to the Alamo, about 11 blocks.
Southern Atmosphere Apparent
This point, seemingly, is the dividing
point, where is lost the Western at
mosphere and one picks up the South
ern. At El Paso everything and every
body is distinctly Western; at San An
tonio there is a mingling of the three
races white, black, and brown, Mex
ican, and all distinctly Southern.
There was one bit of atmosphere in
the brief visit that was purely Oregon.
Private Raymond J. Cole, of the head-
uarters company, was detailed with
Sergeants Brown and Patton to buy
postage stamps and get supplies. It

"Oh. hell, militia." said the "squib."
That remark got the "squib" the most

Private Cole grabbed him by the throat
and shook him until his teeth rattled
like castanets. The other "squib" made
hasty retreat. It happened and was

good advertising out of this Journey
