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. IMIcst Piles ! riles !

The jilaylnp was wlUiout 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.

"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 statute.

Jack Shannon had his hearing la.polico court yesterday afternoon on the charge of assaulting Ofllcor Monell with a chair. Monoll was called into the saloon at the cor ner of Cuming and Twentieth street last Tuesday night to stop a fight which was go ing on there. As he entered the door ho was struck full In the mouth by Tom Carroll , who also snatched his club from him.

Ho came to the city about a year ago from Peoria , 111. , and was employed by a coal 11 rm in South Oma ha. His salary not being lareo enough to 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.

HOWS TI11H , jVf'l'AIN SOU ARK ? Why Don't Tlicfetf JYounsr Mon Got Their MtMiiornm ? 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 arrived. 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. " ConstlriitloiV , , Atnomlcil. The constituting of the guards has re cently been amendo'd/touching the mialillca- tions for membership ; .
