score as a result of the collapse

point where the dock collapsed is
ten feet deep, but a nine-mile cur
rent has probably carried some of
the mis: ing over the falls and
hurled tjhem into the whirlpool.
Indescribable scenes have been
enacted at the. pier . since day
break, when the first body was1 re
covered. A temporary morgue
has been erected and tlje bodies
of the dead weer placed there.

ered have been identified.

the night. Rings were stolen
from fingers of women, and pock
ets of many victims were rifled
of valuables before police were
