FDNDS ARTE MISUNDERSTOOD
Many Ask for Gash -Donations to Re
build Their Homes.
LOTS OF PROBLEMS AHEAD
Kcmttle Do Not Always Jnstlfy n
Additional Lonn and tho O Trn
erB Are Perplexed Jnat
What to Do. -
A misunderstanding has crept Into tho
minds of many who suffered losa.es In the
utorm with regard to .tho work the lm
mediate restoration committed la doing
The result In that -Sunday and especially
Monday tho restoration committee
dfcik In the council chamber lias been
visited by a string .of persons who ex
pected the cointnltteo to hand out cash
on their demand. This la Impossible and
the committee la experiencing; some dif
ficulty In explaining to some, of thoso
sufferers. thwT tlh cannot be done pro
mlscudualy. Many come to the desk and
announce that their loss In tho storni
amounted to, $70 or 11.000 and oak whether
or not they can have this made up to
them lp cash at onct. A little later on
the committee expects to ntako cash do
nations to sufferers where It Is abso
lutely necessary, nut tho general plan
at this time is to. first take caro of all
the urgent nceda, after which there wilt
be a fund created and It will then como
within the scope of the commltta to
help out with cash. For tho tlmo being,
however. Its work centers about advis
ing unfortunates In the rehabilitation of
homes, such advlco as sccurlnK loans
whoro tho equity Justifies such a 'course.
Manifold and complicated are the
problems that present themselves to tho
committee along these lines. There,
comes a man, for example, who has
bought a home for 12,000 op the Install
ment1 plan Thus far ho has paid but
$175 or ?3 on tho pmco. It Is damaged to
aha sura of $700 6r JSOO. He consults with
the company he has bought of which
agrees to' stand '3C0 or $400 of tho damugo
If tho buyer, will stand tho rest.
'What shall I do?" la the cry of the
man lit this perplexity, "smui I lose
the' $200 and let tho property go, or shall
I start the up-hill work of making up tho
extra 00 of tho loss?'
Tho cqmmltteo wll have any number
of such cases to deal with.
Every case la an Individual one and
must bo handled accordingly. Up to thla
time the committee, la at a disadvantage
In Its work as the real estate committee
under D. V. Sholea lias not yet completed
Its report of tho conditions of the various
homes. This list Is to bo tho basis of
the final advice hha work of tho restora
Missing Man Was on
Militia Guard Duty
While Detective James McDonald and
tho rest of his family sought Arthur Mc
Donald, who has been missing since tho
tornado struck, the latter has been
guarding ruined homes with
bera of tho atato mllltla. McDonald Is
In the commission business, and when ho
Joined tho state troops, he rqado no
iiiuimuii ui mo inci io nis mends.
Ills relatives worried over his nhni
and although several of thorn passed
directly by him In tho course of their
search, not ono recognlxed him In tho
"Sparka" Dixon, electrician at tho
Drandels theater, saw him last night and
notified police headquarters, and tho Mc
Donald family then learned for tho first
time where their missing relative has
been for tho last week. It was then
learned that McDonald knew he had
been missed and thought It a good Joke
to remain qulot.
WHEN tho lights went out last evening, many funny things
transpired In consequence, bUt tho best of all that have como
to my notice was the experience of a man out on West Harney
street, who, still mindful of the tornado, thought at once of his
daughter, who had gone to a church servlco down town.
When he stepped out on tire porch and found that part of the city in
dnrknfcss, he Immediately got his coat and hat and started afoot for his
daughter. On Farnam street, near Thirtieth, he heard tho voice of a
woman asking him If she might walk with htm, as she was afraid In the
Hla gallantry naturally affirmed itself, and he was only too glad, to be
of assistance to a woman In such distress. All went well, nd the pair
wore near Twenty-fourth street, when a sudden flash of tho lights lit up
their surroundings and, low and behold, the roan made steps to get away
extra quick. Hot blushes of disappointment spread over his faco and tho
dark-complected lady turned pink.
Another amusing Incident was In the First Methodist church. Pastor
Williams asked tho congregation to keop seated while the cause was bolng
ascertained. Then to relieve tho monotony of the quietude tho choir vVs
naked to sing some familiar hymn. It is well known which Is the favorite
hymn of Mr. Kelly, the choirmaster, and In precise harmony with "Lead,
Kindly Light," one of tho UBherB came out of the basement doorway with
u candle, the only speck of illumination In the whole church.
At the Henshaw cafe, which was crowded with people for Sunday
night supper, tho guests began to get nervous when tho lights went out.
Mayor Dahlman startod the popular song, "My Wild Irish Rose," and soon
the orchestra began playing It and all of tho guests in the cafe Joined In
singing. In a short time candles wero placed in Impromptu candlesticks,
buch as cream pitchers and the supper then went merrily on.
