eafety of which grave fears are en
tertained. The steamer, with sev
eral hundred passengers on hoard,
arrived oft Morro Castle, on Septem
ber 9, when a great tropical hurri
cane was raging, and, being unable
to enter port put out to sea to watt
for the storm to abate. Faint wire
less calls supposed to come from the
Valbanara have several times been
picked up here and at Key West.
While those who have hoped the
ship was safe are beginning to be
pessimistic over her fate, It is
pointed out that on one former oc
casion she rode out a storm fully
as violent as the one of last week,
reaching port 14 days overdue and
with her upper works virtually
stripped away by mountainous
waves. They say the ship was equip
ped with watertight compartments
and was supposed to be unsinkable.
It is suggested that If other means
of finding the ship prove fruitless
seaplanes may be seat out from Key
West to search for her.

Death List Grows Rapidly;
Body Is Identified as
Bishop Nussbaum
By Associated Press.
Corpus Christi, Tex„ Sept. 19. —
Rapid growth of the death list re
sulting from the hurricane and
tidal wave that swept Corpus Christ!
and nearby points Sunday caused
the belief among the relief workers
and local officials that the total dead
would approximate five "hundred
persons. Estimates of the property
loss runs as high as $20,000,000.
Redouble Efforts
With a large amount of territory
still to be explored, searchers to
day redoubled their efforts to rdcover
bodies of persons who lost their
lives in the gulf hurricane.
That dozens of persons who lost
their lives probably never will be
identified was the belief expressed
as reports came in that burial par
ties were interring bodies as rap
idly as found for sanitary reasons.
To-day 284 bodies had been re
ported buried and of that number
only 82 identified. Fifty-seven bodies
had been buried here.
Relief Measures Under Way
Relief measures for relieving the
distress of the 3,000 or 4.000 per
sons made homeless by the storm
were reported to be progressing sat
A rescue party started to-day to
Mustang island, where 11 persons
who were on board the wrecked
launch Waldo are marooned.
Among the dead in Sunday's gulf
hurricane here. identified. was
Bishop Paul J. Nussbaum, of Corpus
San Antonio, Tex., Sept. 19.
Bishop Paul J. Nussbaum. of Corpus
Christi, reported among the identi
fied dead there, has been at Corpus
Christi since 1913 and has been a
member of the Paulist Order. He
served as missionary in Buenos
Aires and other points in the Argen
tine Republic, was stationed at
Rome for several years and for the
five preceding 1913 conducted mis
sions and retreats in eastern states.
He was born in Philadelphia and
was ordained a priest twenty-five
years ago.
