tatest Estimate on Hur
j ricane Casualties
WEST PALM BEACH, Pla.,
Sept 10. (AP). A death toll of
between 700 and S00 .persons,
mostly in the Lake Okeechobee
Everglade region of Florida, was
estimated today by Red Cross of
ficials to have been taken by last
Sunday's disastrous tropical hur
ricane which, after sweepin over
the! West Indies, wreaked destruc
tion in the thickly-populated Palm
Beach county of that state.
The menace of disease arose as
hundreds of bodies laid unburied
whie relief workers worked day
and night to elleviate conditions.
Property damage estimate ranged
irotn 130,000,000 to S75.000.000
for the county, while it was te
ported not more than fire per cent
of the buildings in the section
came' through the hurricane with
out damage. .
Most of Dead Found
Chairman Howard W. Selby. of
the Palm Beach county Red Cross
committee, declared that virtually
all: the dead are in the Everglades
district around Pakokee, South
Bay and Canal Point. Previously
a death list of 400 had been est!
mated in the county.
Declaring that health conditions
are growing worse every minute,
Selby said it might be necessary
to i place the whole area of 100
square miles under quarantine,
A method of remedying condi
tions was proposed by the Red
Cross chairman "to spray the
whole section with lime from air
planes." Federal funds may be required,
hej declared, as the county has not
the money to carry on the rehab
ilitation work. "We need outside
financial help badly to the extent
of $500,000," he said.

and buried within the next 48

territory will have to be effected,

Salem's Black Snow
And what should be
Done about it.
XTISITORS to Salem, after
V voicing unstinted praise
of this city for its wide
streets, beautiful civic ce-nter,
trees, parks and other attrac
tions including the hundreds of
handsome residences, invariab
ly exclaim in surprise and as
tonishment at its notorious
"black snow" which falls, a
dingy blanket, upon every part
of the business ' and shopping
district and in some of the res- J
idential areas, smudging every
thing it touches. From time to
time there have been waves of
indignation directed against Sa
lem's "black snow," but these
apparently have ' spent their
force, without alleviating the
situation. The daily and night
ly showers of cinders continue
to fall,' to the despair of those
who wish to keep clean and the
everlasting joy and delight of
the laundrymen. WKh the idea
of obtaining a cross-section of
public opinion on ths ever-present
subject the New Oregon
Statesman asked several resi
dents of Salem their views
Thursday. Here is the way they
look at it:
ELL WOOD TOWNER, local
attorney, said: "It is putting it
very mildly to say that the cin
der nuisance here is thorough
ly offensive in every respect.
The cinders blow through
cracks and around corners, with
the result that in certain dis
tricts of the city nothing is free
from them. It is surprising
that a city of Salem's size
yand enterprise permits this con
dition to exist. Hardly anything
could be more effective in giv
ing the community a bad name.
FRANK LYNCH, member of
the staff of the Salem Abstract
company, said: "It gives both
the city and the Individual a
black eye." t
B. F. OTHUS, one of the pro
prietors of the Bligh billiard
parlor, said: "The so-called
waste that Is burned causing the
cinders which settle all over
the city, ought to bo converted
into fuel, as is done in other
places. It would be a source of
reveaue and at the same time
Salem would be made a much
more pleasant-place in which to

inent W. C. T. U. woman, said:
