BOOZE IS KEPTON THE HOVE
Sleuthino; Committee Gives it to the
City Dads, Who Pass it Back
to the Ministers.
AND NOW F. A. HIGH HAS IT
A whole Mitcsse full of liquor was
taken to the meeting of the Omaha Min
isterial unldn Monday morning by Rev.
Thomas M. Evans, pastor of the Grace
United Evangelical church. The bottles
remained Intact throughout the meeting,
although their presence was mentioned
by Rev. Mr. Bvatis, who displayed some
of the flasks to the other ministers.
After the meeting another preacher.
Rev. F. A. High, superintendent of the
Omaha Anti-Saloon league, took the
boose with him and Is now supposed to
have It safely put away.
The presence of the liquor at a meeting
of church pastors wj the result of the
extensive Investigation of alleged liquor
law violations by the preachers, shortly
before the city election. They presented
to the city commission a list cf places
alleged to have sold llnuor aftt r hours,
and also presented a collection of bottled
whisky and beer, which ministers said
they had bought.
The city dads returned , the bonie to
the preachers and had not railed for It
since, so Rev. Mr. Rvans, chairman of the
sleuthing committee and custodian of the
boose, took It to the meeting of the
Ministerial union. The latter voted to
turn It over to the Anti-Saloon league.
Although some beer was bought, along
with the whisky, the former has since
disappeared, and only the whisky Is now
in the possemion of Rev. Mr. illth.
