Oriental Delegation to
Washington Gives Out
Statement at Seattle
" !
Nippon Eager to Go to Any
Reasonable Extent To
ward World Peace
SEATTLE, Oct. 29. The Jap
anese delegation to the Washing
ton conference on limitation of
armaments and Far Eastern ques
tions approach the conference
"with hope and confidence" in its
success, they declared in a for
mal statement to the press issued
just after their arrival here to
day on the liner Kashjma Maru.
The statement reads in part:
Armament Held Burden
"There is no denying that the
heavy burden under which indus
try and human progress are suf
fering today is largely due to
the enormous expenditures in the
increasing armaments of the pres
ent time. The government and
people of Japan strongly feel that
the most urgent and real need of
the world today is to find a basis
for an agreement among the pow
ers whereby limitation of arma
ments may be effected. They be
lieve that the age of nations liv
ing in distrust and antagonism of
each other is past and that the
world is seriously looking for a
new era when all nations will be
allowed to live their own lives
peacefully and in harmony with
one another. Difficult as it may
seem, they nevertheless believe
that there is no reason why the
powers should not be able to come
to such an agreement a above
indicated, if they only approach
the subject with an open and
judicious mind and in a spirit of
mutual accommodation and help
fulness. Japan Would Go Limit
"So far as Japan Is concerned
she is prepared to go, in co-operation
with other powers, to any
reasonable extent to achieve this
desired end in the interest of the
peace and welfare of the world
which have ever been the cher
ished object of solicitude on her
part. It was with such belief
and idea that the government of
Japan gladly and wholeheartedly
responded to the call of President
Harding, a rail which plainly
spoke out the inmost desire of

VANCOUVER, B. C, Oct. 29. Between 35 and 50 lives

was the estimated toll of floods that swept away parts of
several towns north and east of here last night and today.
Th most destructive flood was
at Britannia Ueach, a mining vil
lage with a population f Jpo.
IN miles north of Vancouver,; At
Britannia Beach last nighti a
cloudburst broke through a fill t
the mine and released a fierce
torrent of water, which rushed
down to th" ocean, carrying about
half the houses in the town. Iat

medical aid had gone from Van
couver. A portion of Port Coquitlam,
1 4 miles east of Vancouver, was
destroyed by flood waters of the
Coquitlam river. Several build
ings uprooted, went floating down
I the river. No mention was made
j of casualties in reports from this
I district, but 14 families were said
to he marooned. Communication
with the stricken area was impos
sible -except by boat.
The Canadian Pacific railway
reported extensive damage to its
property. Several bridges and
miles of track were washed away
on the main line paralyzing trans
continental traffic. The Canad
ian Pacific estimated its damage
at $1,000,000.
Sulden lowering of tempera
ture, together with steady rains
for weeks were contributing caus
es of the flood.
At Britannia Beach several
bodies had been recovered, and
at an improvised morgue the work
of identifying them was proceed
ing tonight.
Although the proposed viaduct
over the Southern Pacific tracks
near the state fair grounds was
given a temporary set-bark at the

club on the night of October 24.
this was due to the fact that resi
dents whose interests are in that
immediate neighborhood consti
tuted the big majority present.
The general talk was that the
proposed viaduct on the Silverton
road would destroy valuable prop
erty and ruin business that had
taken years to develop.
The high point of the proposed
viaduct would be over the South
ern Pacific tracks on the Silver
ton road opposite' the I'nion Oil
company's buildings. Here it
would be 24 feet high, with 22
feet in the clear, and extend COO
feet each way on the Silverton
road. On the north this would
bring the viaduct to the point
where the side road enters the
state fair grounds, and on the
south extend past Doe's grocery,
to the point where Highland ave
uue intersects Pacific highway.
The Union Oil company on the
Silverton road and the railroad,
owns a little more than an acre of
i ground. It has constructed build
ings and tanks, valued at auoui
$8,400. This is the highest valu
ation of any interest that would j
be affected by the viaduct. j
On the north side of the Silver-
White robed spectres appeared
at the Salem Deaconess hospital
last night for the second time
within a week. However, these
ghastly visitors were not sheet

scared women nurses and patients

torches. Neither was an anony

A wall cf water TO feet wide
and from three to five feet deep

telescoped. Trees no feet long

were pulled apart as if structures
of pasteboard.
