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. Mimy Prohlems. 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 tion committee. 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 kahkl uniform. "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 dark. 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.
