OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
Rome, Jan. 2, The immensity of
tho disaster in Southern Italy and Si
cily can bo measured only by tho fact
that it is now estimated that 110,000
persons perished in Messina and Reg
gio alone. A score of other towns
have been devastated and thousands of
victims in these places must be added
to tho roll. In the face of these awful
totals oil Italy stands appalled. Nor
has the full death list yet been report
ed. Shiploads of fugetives have nrrvived
at Naples and other ports and the vast
majority or these are sorely injured.
Other thousands remain near the ruins
of their homes or wander half starved,
half naked over the land. The forces
that on Monday overwhelmed the cities
also destroyed the means of sustenance.
Telegraphic communication has been
established ,with Messina, the appara
tus having been set up in a railway
station. Messages that have come over
the line, though they have been meagre
in detail, show that hope Is gone.
Nothing remains of the city but a mass
of ruins that have been swept by fire.
