Grcnn nnI the I'ollco Commission.
'Mayor Hroatch says that the police' and
fire commission will investigate the charges
against Captain Ureon despite the fact that
ho has resigned. As Mr. Gilbert has re
turned there is now a sufficient number of
the commission in the city to constltuto a
quorora. A meeting , however , will uroba-
nbly not bo hold before the regular time on
Monday evening. The * mayor says that
Captain Green's ' successor must bo named by
the lire and police commission alono.
liltlgntlon. Piling Up for the Septem
ber Term.
The outlook now indicates a very largo
docket for the September term of the dis
trict court. Notwithstanding the fact that
over six htindrod cases had been disposed of
when a final adjournment had boon reached ,
the Judges will have as much litigation before -
fore them as they had at the opening of the
February or May terms.
Mr. Moores is anxious for attorneys to
understand that they must have all cases
for the now doukot in by the 24th inst. , as
that will be the limit in order to giro sulll-
olont time for tiling answers before the court
convenes ?

Congressman Council nnif the Gas
Company Kncli Fllo Afllilnvlts.
Affidavits are inexpensive at this season ,
so the conglomerated ga interests made ono
in answer to Congressman Connoll'o , and
placed it on file with the district court clerk
at 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
James T. Keyword , being sworn , says ho
Is ono of the defendants in the Injunction
eult brought Dy Congressman Council , and
ia also a sortof chlof clark for the gas com
pany. Ttin first paragraph significantly
hints that as such clerk ho has charge of
cbllccUona and authority to cut off the gas
from customers who refuse to comply with
the company's rules.
After reciting a single-handed dlaloguuo
about the company , Mr. Hoywurd proceeds
to swear , in substance , that the gas iu Mr.
Council's house was shut off Tuesday evening
solol/bccauso ho had permitted his July bill
to go unpaid over the time specified iu the
company's rules , the 10th of every month.
They also declare that no sooner bad his
chock for the amount duo been received oa
Thursday morning than the gas was agaia
turned on.
Deponent denies that la turning oft the gas
ho was actuated by splto or any motive ex
cept the non-payment of the bill , as required
of everyone alike.
Mr. Council was on hand with material
enough to make a second affidavit , and 5:80 :
o'clock found him ia the clerk's ofllco alter
nately reading from a copy of the gas com
pany's affidavit aad answering its statements
in his own.
The Juno trouble occurred , ho said , whllo
ho was trying tbo Hoagland case , Involving
over $175,000 , and was very busy. On the
evening ot the Ifith of Juno ho came homo
about ? o'clock ' und found a party of mon
tear'ug ' up his sidewalks , "What's all this
about I" haasuod.
"We're hero to take up the gas pipes. " ono
of them replied.
"Well can't do it '
, you to-night ; you're a
little too Irte sn the day , " and suiting the
action to tlie word the congressman tossed
the planks buck Into place.
The men hung about the yard for a time ,
then walked away. Mr. Council was busy
thut evening preparing his argument for the
next morning. Ho wan down for the opening
speech , and said ho wouldn't have had the
interruption thrust upon him at that time for
H'5. But ho arose early next morning , and
going to his office wrote out a blank check
and carried it down-to the gas company's of
fice. He settled the bill , paying , as ho slates ,
"too Qxtortlonato rate of | 3 per 1,000 foot ,
aa charged , which , as a matter of fact , as
compared with correct incter rates of coal
gas , would bo in excess of (3 per 1,000. , "
Iteiurniag to his office his wlfo Informed
him by telephone that mon were tlioro again ,
tearing up the gas pipe * . Ho replied that ho
didn't tea how that could bo , as hu had lust
paid the bill. "Tell them to stop , " ho added ,
and hurried up to the court house. At noon
ho went home ana found that the uipos had
been cut , and the earth packed over them
again. His wife told him that she had asked
the mon to atop , tolling them the bill had
been paid , but ( boy had paid no attention toner
nor further than to ay that It didn't make
uuy dllteroune. they were going to cut of ! the
jra , und they did. .
At till * the congressman admits his choler
rose and bo went down to the gas company's
ofllco. Chief Clerk Haywara received him ,
and , on being questioned , admitted that ho
was the follow who replied to Mrs , Council's '
queries. "At which stage of the play , " said
Mr. Connell , "I called him n cowardly cur , n
paltroon and n few things like that. "
Alluding to the claim that his bills were
allowed to run past duo ono onllro month ,
ho stated that it was duo to nn error of the
gas company's accountant. Before going to
Washington hn had Intrusted to Judge Ires
the payment of a number of small accounts ,
among them the gas bills. The account ren
dered included only ono month's bill ,
whereas , it should have Included two. It
was paid as presented , and the gas people
had no right to object , especially as ho rec
tified their error at once when his attention
was called to it. .
These facts ho incorporated in an affidavit ,
Which was Died shortly after 0 o'clock.

tainted with fraud , and ho Instituted

leges that while Chapman & Polk were his
authorized used O'Uon-
agents , they simply -
ahoo as a figurehead , aud Polk was the real
purchaser. Ho agreed to pav O'Donahoo '

ors gathered nt the athletic parlt last ovon-

doubt the iinest ever Witnessed In Omaha ,
nnd it was a pleasure to see with what swift-
tcss and dexterity nn accomplished player
can knock the ball into his opponents' court
nnd Just out of the Inttor's ronch. The
Ipublo sots were played by Pnrdon nnd
-.nthrop vs Euatmnn und Coombs. The
Irst game was a brilliant ono , lasting nearly
an hour , und resulted in n score of 0-7 in
favor of Purdon and fjttthrop. A second sot
vns commenced , but was postponed until to-
dav , with the qcoro standing 3-2.
The singles nro attrnctinR considerable In
terest also. Last evening Stranp , Doano
and Purdon appeared on the scone , each
anxious for the championship , and each
laving downed two opponents , Doano hud
defeated Coombs and Luthrop , Purdon had
aid out Ball and Eastman , whllo Stranp
dangled the scalps of Dioltoy nnd Heed.
Strnng nnd Doano wcro the first two to
measure skill with each nnd the
result was .that Straus had to re-
, lro from the contest with scores of
0-3 aud 0-1 against him. The championship
of singles is therefore narrowed down bo-

"Sweet Lavender" was presented by
FYohman's Lyceum Theater company at
3oyd's ' opera house last night for the
first time In this city. It drew an
audiecce almost as largo as the ono
that witnessed "Tho Wife. " While
everything favorable that could bo
said of "Sweet Lavender" as a
stage attraction is fully deserved , it is
lotTai interesting a play as the other. That ,
nowevor , is probably duo to the fact that its
characters are not so familiar to American
[ icoplo , and the story develops occurrences so
tainted with human weaknesses and social
immoralities that tend to chill rather than
outhuso tbo more delicate , more refined and
moro sensitive feelings of such audiences as
patronize this superb company. But it
served , nevertheless , to show the members
of it in a different light from that in which
they have been seen here ; therefore ,
the appreciation was all that could
be desired. Miss Cayvan never appeared
so charming as in the character of Minnie
Gillllllan , and she completely won the ad
miration of every person in the house. W.
J. Lo Moyno has the principal part , though ,
that of Dick Pheuyl , a barrister , nnd ho
played it to perfection. A moro
artistic , delightful bit of character
work has never boon seen in this city.
All the others deserve mention , especially
Miss Dillon , Mrs. Whlffen , Henry Miller
and Charles DieUson , who was substituted
for Herbert Kelcey in the role of Horace
Bream , a young American. The latter did
not appear. Charles Wolcott , as Nelson
Wueatcro ft , nnd Mrs. VValcot also sustained
the parts allotted to them magnificently.
All in all the performance was in every re
spect entirely satisfactory , and all will agree
that in several instances it showed better
acting than anything done in "Tho Wife. "
The audlcnco that greeted Lilly Clay's
company at the Grand opera house last night
was large , enthusiastic and masculine. The
evening's programme was varied , and
was a presentation of songs , dances ,
shapely limbs and other brie-a-brac.
The entertainment was amusing , of
course , to . those who appreciate
that variety of shows , but the moral effect
on a Sunnay school class would bo anything
but salutary. As a matter of fact , the show
was almost Indecent , the actors , if such
they may bo called , approaching as near the
line as possible without violating the

was employed by a coal 11 rm in South Oma

suit tno gentleman's extravagant taste , he
mortgaged his leased furniture to Uvo dif
ferent parties , and also paid bills with checks
on banks in which ho had no deposits. Hn
moved about from place to place. At first
ho and his wife roomed on Capital avenue
between Nineteenth and Twentieth streets.
From there they moved to Nineteenth street ,
afterwards going to Davenport between Sev
enteenth nnd Eighteenth streets. Ho finally
moved to South Twenty-second street , where
ho lived until ho loft the city about a week

Why Don't Tlicfetf JYounsr Mon Got

There Is trouble In th'js ranks of the Omaha
3uards deep seated dissension nnd discord
which , If it continues , is liable to break up
the organization ,
Hero is the history of the case ,
As nearly every one is aware the organiza
tion is not n part or portion of the state mil-
tin. It Is a company composed of young
mon of a military turn of mind who uniform
nnd arm themselves , and receive the satis-
'action of a press notice whenever they go
on parade. The members of the company
are , In the main , the bast young mon of
Omaha and constltuto a military organiza
tion of which any city might well bo proud.
Out ns assorted , there is trouble brewing ,
The Omaha Guards are in debt. They
mvo been in this condition for a long time.
They were in debt a your ago and in order to
make some money hold n "bazaar , " the re
ceipts ot which were to bo applied for the
purchase of uniforms. The affair was a par
tial success and the new bra s-buttoncd dross
suits were ordered , the measurements sent
on nnd In duo tlmo a portion ot the garments
Four younc mon , Ned Hall , Ed Smith ,
Private Hoglo and n young man employed in
the ofllco of Auditor Wing of the Union Pa
cific , were loft out. They protested to Cap
tain Scharf , the tall bewhiskered chief ofll-
cor , that they were not being fairly treated ,
and assorted that when the command "right
dross" was given that to look at the buttons
on the now uniform of the second
man to the right whllo they stood In
their old clothes would bo sufflclont
to arouse the green-eyed monster , and they
didn't ' want him awakened just at that timo.
This was six months ago.
Hut Captain Scharf was dumb. Ho ap
parently clid not care whether his soldiers
Had uniforms or not. And nothing was done
In the matter.
In consequence , the four young men
lianded in their resignations.
Hut despite this action , the monthly assess
ments of W each came around with start
ling regularity. As a m.ittor of course they
refused to pny. and u night or two ago were
dishonorably discharged. The company not
being In the militia there is no appeal , and
they must be content to abide by what they
consider an injustice.
After citing the above facts , one of tbo
quartette yesterday said : "It's too bud.
Wo all went m the guards anxious for the
company's success. Wo wore willing to
stand us much expense nnd inconvenience as
any one.but Captain Scharf bos his favorites
and , as wo did not 'stand In , ' of course wo
got ttio worst of it. Why there are mon in
Company who haven't paid one-half what wo
imvo who received uniforms , and wo wore
shut out. It will result in breaking up the
company if Scharf cohtinues his policy. Ho
is , to my mind , a goodi drill master , but a
very poor captain.As Jong as his favorites
llattnr him they are , all right. Hut a man
who insists on his rights had better got out
it ho can. That Is the % tory in a nutshell. "

IS not only a distressing complaint , ot
itself , but , by causing the blood to
become depraved nnd the system en
feebled , is tbo parent of Innumerable
maladies. That Ayer's Snrsnparllla
is the best cure for Indigestion , even
vrben complicated with Liver Complaint ,
Is proved by the following testimony
from Mrs. Joseph Lake , of Brockway
Centre , Mich. :
"Liver complaint and indigestion
made my llfo n burden nnd came near
ending ray existence. For moro than
four years I suffered untold agony , was
reduced almost to a skeleton , and hardly
had strength to drag myself about. All
kinds of food distressed mo. nnd only
the most delicate could bo digested at
all. Within the tlmo mentioned suvoral
physicians treated mu without giving re
lief. Nothing that I took Keemod to do
any permanent good until I commenced ,
the use of Ayor's Sarsaparllla , which
has produced wonderful results. Soon '
after commencing to take the Stusapa- |
rilla I could see an Improvement in my
condition. My appetite beqan to return
nnd with it came tlio ability to digest
all the food taken , my strength im
proved each day , and after a few
month.i of faithful attention to your
directions , I found myself a well
woman , able to attend to all household
duties. The medicine has given ino anew
now lease of life. "
