There were thousands of visitors .n the
city today. Mont of them were iron sur.

which many of them bore wore manifest
fo gcrlcn. The majority of the bodies of
tho flood victims will be found hurled

Ji"ew pooplo were caught In thilr homss,
as most all of them had received suffi

flood assumed dangerouB proportions.
Those who woro drowned, for tho most
part, were caught In the streets, Mtnor

business or cmploymtnt, or while tryina
to got to places of safety when forced to

Third regiment, Ohio National Guard,
who went throuah the flood In West
Dayton, said that ho saw scor of dead
bodies floating down tho Ml.iml rlvr

water was Icy cold and tho current ter

In one district, it "as stated at sani
tary department headquarters, dozens of
bodies could bo seen under plies of
wreckage, hero a hand and there a foot
flicking out from mulct tho debris. Ef
forts weio diiected for several hours In
an attempt to get at these bodies, hut
none had been taken out when night foil.
The work of extending succor to tho
marooned Inhabitant)! of tho districts
which still are flooded continued during
the day. In many sections wero to bo
seen rowboats, skiff and canoes making
their wuy with extreme difficulty among
the heaps of wreckage and overturned
houses, among meshes of telegraph, tele
phone and electric light wires, seeking
out possible victims who had been un
carcd for. Among tho organizations en

and expressed It In the following state

who operate us undertakers will be
treated as they deserve. If It takes tho
entire military power ut tho command
of tho medical department of the Ohio

reliable undertakers In Dayton who
have compiled strictly with tho order
to report tho recovery of all bodies, but
thero have been reports received here
of numerous Instances of undertakers

"All medlcnl nnd military officers have

no less than 121 bodies had been taken
to different moigues nnd to private
homes. Tills was ascertained by a com

epidemic of some kind, unless the most
rigid sanitary rules are enforced.
