Corpus Christi today slowly beg.ta to emerge from the wreckage caused bv the tropical hurricane which struck the city early Sunday, bringing death to an unknown number of persons and doing property damage running into the millions. Moro than three thousand persons were made homeless by the storm and the problem of taking care of them was faced by officials today. With the coining of relief trains it was expected by nightfall thai moot of those made destitute by the storm could be taken care of. The storm struck early Sundty morning and was accompanier b> a tidal wave that sent a wail ot water ten feet high, sweeping into the business district of the cit J. When the tidal wave was at its height virtually every second door down town was under water. Military rule was established yesterday and no one was allowed to enter the wrecked parts of the city. All food stuffs that escaped damage by water were sold under direction of city officials, one day’s rations being allowed to each customer. The removal of debris will take some time, as house boats, fishing craft and float of every' description is piled high in all of the main thoroughfares Mounting rapidly as reports from isolated sections began coming in. the death list as a result of the tropical hurricane which, on Sunday swept the Texas gulf coast about Corpus Christo, was variously estimated at from seventy to one hundred and fifty today. Victims found along the bay shores were believed to be largely from Corpus Christi, their bodies whirled away by the receding waters of the ten foot tidal wave that swept in on a sixty mile early Sunday. Reports from Odom. Texas, were that the situation in Corpus Christi was “-increasingly serious,” gnd the in av or of Sinton, north of Corpus Cb ria ti. reported that tne bodies of twenty-one storm v ictims ban been gathered in a school house five miles from Sinton.    , Another report from Odom ts mat of Dr n C. Reinhart who returned laet night from Corpus Christi said that the number of dead there, at Tort Aransas and Portland, might reach two thousand, and that “it was estimated that about two thousand bodies have drifted across the bay., from Corpus Christi and othei points. There was no way of confirming this report, but it seemed discounted in view of the fact that the Associated Trees was In leased wire communication with Corpus Christi up to 3:    © clock ibis morning, and . ai that hour city officials and news- < paper men were still of the belief, that the death list in the city would not exceed twenty-five.
