RESULT IS HOUSE OF HOPE
By A. R. GROH.
The House of Hope, for which a
financial campaign is now being car
ried on in Omaha, is the brick-and-stone
proof of the power of prayer
and f a i tli.
Rev. Charles W. 'Savidge belives
that God speaks directly to him, di

inspired the many contributions that
have resulted in the $60,000 property
as it stands today.
One day in 1906 Rev. Mr. Savidge
stood in front of a dilapidated cottage
at 1 71 J California street and, being
impressed with the need of a home for
old people, he said: "Lord, if You will
send me $250 without my asking any
one for it, I will take it as a sign that
You mean tor me to buy this cottage
and begin a home for old folks."
The next day some friends sent him
$JUu to be used in hts work.

He called it the "House of Hope."

funds came in miraculously in re
sponse to faith and prayer. Another
cottage adjoining was added.
One June day in 1908 Mr. Savidge
and his wife were out driving. They

around the vacant house.
"There and then God spoke to me.'
he said. "He spoke plainly. I heard
His voice. 'Buy this place and I'll
help you!' I went back to the buggy
and said to my wife, 1 m going to
buy this house.' She looked at me and
said 1 was crazy, lhats all right,
ma, but you'll see,' I told her.
Not Very Crazy.
"I went to thirty men and asked
each of them for $50. Every one of
them gave it to me. With that $1,500

ized a board of trustees. Then I went
home and spent three solid days in
prayer. I didi.'t go outside of the
house. I wrote a paper about God's
sure promise to help those who be
lieve in Him and seek to help human
ity. I took that paper with me and
went down to see George Hoagland.
He heard me through and then ex-
aimed. Why you re crazy r
"Later he told me to get my trustees
down to his omce. When they were
there he said, 'I'll give my check for
$2,000, payable when you have raised
the rest of the $8,500 that Brother
Savidge needs.' Well, Tom Hamilton
of Sarpy county gave $1,000, Dave
Cole $250, Gould Dietz $250, Dr. Mer
cer $500. In ninety days the building
was paid for and we had $1,000 over.
God had lived up to His promise
Winning a Farm. i1
"When we were wondering where
funds would come from for ther big
building of the House of Hope at
Florence, Maria Williams of BelU
wood, Butler coonty, dined at my
house. She owned thirty farms. After
dinner, having prayed much for funds,
I asked her to come np to ray study.
I said to her, 'Mrs. Williams, I want
you to give me a farm for my new
House of Hope.' 'I will do it,' she
said, without hesitation. The deed
was put in trust of Luther Kountze.
We sold the farm for $21,500. Mrs.
Williams was 70 years of age then.
She died two months later and left
us an additional $1,000 in her will."
The splendid plant of the House
of Hope in Florence will accommo
date, when all the cottages are com
pleted, about 135 old people.
Noi cheap, pinchbeck institution is
ful and substantial. The furniture
alone cost unward of $3,000.
Partner With God.
And this has been accomplished by
a man who took God at His word,
who sees nothing strange in an actual
working partnership with the Diety.
He has had the assistance of some
of our leading citizens as his board
of trustees G. H. Payne. J. DeForest
Richards, N. B. Updike, Gould Dietz,
T. F. Stroud, R. J. Dinning, N. P.
Dodge, Dr. J. P. Lord, Thomas
Hamilton, Thomas Herd, Francis T.
Parker. These men give freely of
their time, abilities and means.
All but $12,000 of the new $50,000
building has been paid. The "town
house," 956 North Twenty-seventh
avenue, will continue to be operated
Six new "cottages" of twelve rooms
each, costing $7,000 each, are to be
built surrounding the main building.
Money for these is also being raised
in the campaign.

RINE SEEKS HOLE
FOR THE SALOONS
City Attorney Advises Council
that Licenses May Be Paid
Por One-Third of Year.
DECISION MEANS BIO SUM
Admitting there is some doubt on
the question, City Attorney Rine ad
vised the city commissioners that he
believes they, would be acting within
the intent of the law if they charged
saloon keepers one-fhird of $1,000 for
the one-third of a year period from
January 1 to April 30, 1917.
Mr. Rine believes that When the
people voted to permit the saloon men
to operate one-third ot the next year
thev likewise, intended to amend the
$1,000 license provision to provide for
There is nearly SAXMJUU involved in
the acceptance or rejection of Mr.
Rine's ooinion by the city council. If
the one-third license is charged, all of
the saloons will remain open until
April 30. Should the $1,000 license be
assessed, some may be closed Decem
ber 31, it is stated; but the difference
wonld still be considerable between
the $1,000 license as provided by the
state hw and the one-third-year li
cense as recommended by the city at
Gives His Opinion.
The ooinion of the city attorney to
the city commissioners follows;
In response to request tor an opin
ion as to the terms ana conaitions
under which a liquor license can be
granted after the first of the year,
will state that as under the amend
ment to the constitution' prohibiting
the sale of intoxicating liquors it will
be unlawful to engage in the general
liquor business after May 1, 1917, it
is my opinion that your honorable
body has no authority to grant a li
cense for the sale of intoxicating
liquors, except druggists' permits, for
any'period after May 1,' 1917.
As to the amount to De cnargea
for liauor license after the first of
the year will pay that the question
is not free from doubt I have point
ed out that by the adoption of the
prohibition amendment the liquor
laws of the state have been amended
90 that no license can be granted for
any period after May 1, 1917.
The question then arises whether
your honorable body is authorized to
charge $l,uuv, tne sum proviaea Dy
law for a yearly license. You are
advised that the courts of this state
have held that where application is
made for a liquor license and by rea
son ef protest and appeal from the
licensing board to the district court
the riirht to exercise the privilege
of sale is suspended for a period, that
the license is permitted to recover
the pro rata part ot his license
money, and that where a license is
revoked after the licensee has been
granted a license through 'no fault
of the licensee, such licensee can re
cover back the pro rata portion of
the license money covering the period
for which he was not authorized af
ter revocation to exercise his privi
lege under the license. In this con
nection I might say that this rule as
laid down by our suDreme court dif
fers from the rule established in many
other jurisdictions. It is based upon
the ground that equity would not re
quire the licensee to pay for a por
tion of the license year for which he
was unable to exercise a privilege
where such condition arose through
no fault of his own.
"Reasoning by analogy it would
seem that the same role should apply
where, through, no fault of his own,
the applicant by reason of the consti
tutional amendment, is prohibited
from exercising any privilege after
May 1. Under the law covering the
sale of liquor $1,000 is the minimum
for which a license can be granted,
but as the constitutional amendment
on prohibition has amended the law so
that the license cannot be granted for
a full year, but only until May 1, 1917,
it would seem the liquor law likewise
had been amended as to the amount to
be charged, especially in the light of
ine aecisions in inis state aDove re
ferred to. As I have stated, the law
is not clear upon this question, and
we have no decisions to point the way,
except those which I have made ref
erence to. If the council determines
to grant the license for a portion of
the year 1917, for a sum which repre
sents a like proportionate part of the
$1,000, I believe that it will be acting
within the intent and spirit of the
liquor legislation as interpreted by
Guns from Greece
Athens, Friday, Nov. 24. (Via Lon

You Are Violating Nature's
Offers Tract to
The City in Lieu
Of Special Taxes
George T. Morton and C. N. Dietz
have offered to transfer to the city
a tract of land, comprising fifteen
acres at Fifty-second and Center
streets in lieu of the payment of ap
proximately $15,000 special taxes as
sessed on account of the recent paving
on West Center street. If the offer
should be accepted the city would use
the tract for park and playground
purposes. The city commissioners
are considering the matter.

Labor Leaders Ask Mayor to
Turn Basement of Audi

TO SELL STAPLES AT COST
Harry M. Lux, John Gruhn, Mich

sen, business agents for the plasterers,
teamsters, laborers, sheet metal work
ers, engineers, electricians and paint
ers, respectively, called on Mayor
Dahlman to announce they will sub
mit to the city council next week a
proposition contemplating using the
basement of the Auditorium for mu
nicipal market purposes.
The general plar is to ask the city
officials lo sell at cost coal and cer
tain staple foods this winter. The
mayor said lie would look into the
legal phase of the matter.
"1 favor the proposition if we can
legally take up such a project The
details, of course, would have to be
carefully worked out," said the mayor.
This plan has been tried with suc
cess by mayor.; and city fathers of
several towns. Indianapolis once tried
out the scheme. The latest to make
an effort to reduce the high cost of
living for the community over which
he held sway was the mayor of Terre
Haute, lnd.,- who leased a coal mine,
hired miners and 20(1 trams and sold
coal in Terre Haute for $2.75, whereas
the price before he took hold of the
reins was $6 a ton. -

they be filled with fluit, vegetables
or eatables and returned to the Old

donations requested are for the pur

Two Are Brought
Back on Charges
. Of White Slavery
J. L. X Harris and Harry Miller,
arrested m Chicago for violating the
Mann act, have been returned to
Omaha. Both waived examination
and were locked up in the county
jail under bonds of $5,000 each.
The men are charged with trans
porting Irene Blum and Sarah Keane
of Sacramento, Cal., to this city for
immoral purposes. The women, both
married and accompanied by three of
their babes, were found deserted by
welfare workers and have been cared
for by Father Flanagan at the Work
Word was received from their hus
bands that they would take them back
and have wired transportation to do
so. They have been held here pend
ing the arrest of the young men in
order that they might testify against
them. They will be permitted to leave
for Sacramento this evening.
From letters found on the men it
is thought that both have been con
nectcd'wtih a ..amber similar cases.
It is also thought that J. L. Harris
is wanted by the detective agency of
the National Bankers' association for
passing a number of forged checks.
