CONCEIVED IN CORRUPTION Vivid Description of How Some Municipal Affairs Arc Handled , LIGHT SHED ON THE GARBAGE CONTRACT rilnl Allrgliiff Hint Solon ! \VIIcy Knglnrvrril HID Drill Through I In ? Council l.v Hrlirmra Hint Would Tamitiiiny Turn 1'uli1. Through the medium of tlio district court Bovcrnl powerful scarcli lights were yesterday turned upon the Macdonnlil garbage contract and the means adopted to get It through the city council. The garbage suit , proper , was brought by Henry Coombs nml others , and was against Alexander Macdonald nnd thosu associated with him In the garbagebusiness. . It was filed some two weeks ago nnd was Net for hearing. Inforc Judge Ferguson last Sa.tur- day , but on account of some of the parties not being ready to Join Issues It went over for one week. In the original petition the plalntirtH sought to enjoin the defendants from going on with the work of removing and disposing of the city garbage , alleging that by the terms of the ordinance granting the franchise the defendant A were given nil exclusive right to haul nnd dispose of all garbage anil refuse within the city limits. They also alleged thai the prices llxed were exorbitant and unjust , and that the whole of tlie transaction was honeycombed with fraud and trickery. Yesterday the affidavits showing wherein the fraud Is alleged to exist were filed. Krank IJungan , In an atlldavlt , avers that during the month of October , 18011 , and u long time prior thereto , ho was In the em ploy of the New Omaha Thomson-Houston Klectrlc Light company , closely associated with Solon I , . Wiley , the president of the company. One morning In the month of October. 18D3 , nnd while he waa with tno electric light people , he found upon his desk n" note In the handwriting of S. L. Wiley , \\hlcli read as follows : "Frank Dungan , C & Leavenworth. 1 arc light. Put In at once to help 1'eter Hack. " The affiant avers that he at once caused the lamp to be placed In the location desig nated , and a short time afterwards he met Hack , who told him that ho wanted two arc lights , one placed at Fourth street and Woolworth avenue and the other at Ninth and Ulalne streets. This was reported to Wiley , who , the affiant says , nt first de murred , but finally said they would be lo cated and put upon the city's list of lamps nH BOOH after the election as possible. These lumps , the affiant avers , were placed for the pole purpose of assisting In securing the election of Hack to the city council. HOW JACOBSKN WAS TRKATI3D. In another part of his affidavit Frank Dungan avers that acting under the direction of S. L. Wiley he procured from relatives of Halfdan Jacobscn , a member of the city council , affidavits charging the said Jacobscn with having appropriated the money of the Bald relatives to his own use nnd purpose. These affidavits , after belug secured , the affiant alleges , were turned over to Wiley. During the Sunday prior to the fall election of 1893 the affiant alleges that Jacobsen was closeted with Wiley In the private office of the Thomson-Houston company In the base ment of the First National haul ; for a long time. While the two men were In the private office the affiant alleges 'that he heard Jacobsen crying. Hu also alleges that after Jacobsen had left the office Wiley said : "Wo own Jacobsen now , body and foul. " Since that date the affiant avers that Jacob- Hen has always voted for nil of the electric light legislation that , hail been before the city council for consideration. Ueferrlng to the matter of garbage Dungan alleges that' Macdonald did not make n bid and that Instead of doing so his name was Signed by Wiley , who full well knew at the time that Macdonald was not In the city , but Instead was In one of the Iowa cities fccvoral hundred miles away. DEHUN WAS ALSO TAKEN IN. Richard S. Berlin , In an affidavit , swears that during the month of Juno , 1S93 , he was Interested in n crematory company , which had for Its object tha placing of n garbage furnace In Omaha. The council had asked for bids for the cremation of this garbage of the city and lie had submitted his propo sition. At the time there were two other bids before the council , one by Alexander Mac donald and the other by Frank Dungan. Shortly after this , and before the council liail _ disposed of the garbage matter , the affiant alleges that he met Frank Dungan upon the street and was Informed by him that ho , Berlin , was wanted nt Wiley's office. Berlin avers that ho went to the oQlco of the Thomson-Houston company , where ho met S. L. Wiley , who Informed 111 in that the bids of Macdonald and Dungan wore not genuine , but worn In his , Wiley's , Interest. Having divulged this Information , the affiant avers that Wiley said to him at that time that It was not for the best to have conflicting Interests , after which lie proposed that a company bo organised and capitalized for $55,000 for the purpose of carrying on the garbage business. After eomo additional talk , the affiant alleges that Wiley said that If he , Ilorlin , would step out of the way , ho could have $5,000 of the paid up stock of the company free of cost and a position at a salary of $1,000 per year. The affiant alleges that in Ills garbage crematory scheme ho had a partner , Newton Nlday , nnd that when Wiley made the proposition ho Informed him ( Wiley ) , that Nlday would have to bo consulted. The mut ter was talked over with Wiley , and the agreement was made * nnd n contract entered Into In accordance with the terms of the un derstanding. Later on In the proceedings Ilorlin swears to a conversation In which Wiley took a part , that leads him to the opinion that the Kmlley suit Is a bluff. Ho alleges that after the suit was commenced , ho was sitting In the office of Robert W. Patrick In The lieo building , where the Smiley Knit \vns being discussed by Wiley and others. At that time. Wiley said , referring to the petition filed by Smiley , "It wan drawn up not a thousand miles from my office. " Affidavits of Krln Cleveland , Sam Over- Kurd. John Nelson , Henry ( loombes and lloraco Clark have also been filed , and each affiant alleges that Macdonald nnd his agents nro allowing the Jones street dump to con tinue In a filthy condition to the detriment uf the health of the city. They also allege that Macdonald and his agents nro litir- rabslng them and preventing them from engaging In the work of hauling away and dumping garbage , notwithstanding the fact that they have a legal right to engage In biieh hauling. AlUll'H UuiiuiKfl Suit. It Is now apparent that the $ .10,000 damage milt brought by Dell AKIn of Holt county against Frank Simons , the sheriff of El Paso rounty , Texas , and W. P. Cunningham of } 'aso Del Norte , Mex. , will bo fought to a finish In the courts of this county , as both of the defendants have filed their answers. The trouble all grows out of Ilarrctt Scott , the defaulting treasurer of Holt county , who last fall fled to Mexico , After ho had been In the Mexican country for some time Dell Akin , so the story went , proceeded to Mexico for the purpose of making some kind of settlement , Shortly after reaching there he was arrested by the two defendants , thrown Into n Mexican Jail and detained for unite a period of time. After the arrest of Scott , Akin was placed In irons and brought back. As ha passed through this city ho stopped off long enough to commence a $50,000 damage suit against Ills two captors. Yesterday the defendants filed their answer to the petition , alleging that they were never legally served with process. They also allege that Scott was a fugitive from Justice , being charged with the embezzlement of $70,000 of publla funds , the property of Holt county. They had papers for the arrest of Scott nnd that Akin was aiding and assisting htm to evade the officers of the law. For that reason , they allege , they placed him under arrest and detained him as a prisoner. Jllnor Court 'Mutters. tu the criminal court A. Noland is on trial , charged with having stolen a bicycle from Daxon ft Co. W. 0 , Cotlleld , the young man who worked the swindling game upon some of the banks Of this city some weeks ago and.

There Is now some prospect of the scheme budding Into a reality. Commissioner Utt recently wrote to F. J. Lewis with relation to the subject. He re ceived the following reply , under date of April 1 , this morning : * Dear Sir : Answering your valued favor of the 22d Inst. , will btate that there Is an excellent opening here for a straw-board mill and a mill for the manufacture of roofing and sheathing papers. Answering your questions as to how many tons of crude paper we could use , will -state that we could place orders with a mill of this kind for at least three cars of fifteen tons each per week during the nine working months of the year. Besides what we could use , there IH n 7-finrtv market for as much more at Kan sas City , and almost an equal amount at Denver. During the six or seven building months of the year Omaha nnd Council Bluffs dispose of atout one car loud of building paper of various kinds per day. Kansas City wants two car loads and Den ver about three-fourths of n car load. These points can all bo reached at the saving of from 10 to 30 cents per hundred pounds In freight. This Item alone represents a very largo profit. The following papers can be made as cheaply In Omaha as In any of the towns cast , where mills are running , viz : Strawboard - board , rosln-slzcd shcatg ! ! : , and raw im- saturuted roofing felt. To construct a mill suitable for handling these goods profitably would necessitate an expenditure of about $25,000 to | 35,000 , according to capacity. These figures can bo reduced quite consid erably by purchasing some of the New England - land plants which are not running , or which are In tlio hands of receivers , UH the mills there paid such large profits they multiplied too fust , with the usual results. There Is no mill for the manufacture of our roofing felt or rosin-sized sheathing nearer than Belolt , WIs. , and the bulk of these goods come from Ohio nnd Pennsylvania. We feel that there Is an excellent open ing for such an Industry here and would pro ceed with the organization of a paper mill plant oiirhelves If It were not that we are Interested very largely now In the manufac ture and sale of roofing materials and of the saturation of raw papers , und this Is an entirely separate business for Itself. Wo trust that this Information answers your questions , and hoping that something might be done toward starting an Industry of this kind , wu remain , yours very truly , _ ! ' J. LEWIS. .

K IWll.lt A ItOOlf. Fioin the New Ynrl ( K\pnlnK Tflfgiain , Monday , Mairh i. 1W1. A very remarkable book , differing es sentially In character from anything ever before published , will be completed and In the hands of fortunate art lovers before the end of another month. This Is the work comprising the written record of Daniel Hudson Biirnham , chief of construction and director of works for the Columbian ex position , with the art reproductions ar ranged by Francis Davis Millet , director tf decoration , which are due to a numerous company of artist * . An inconceivable amount of labor and care has bec'n devoted to this work , Yesterday for the first tlmo , the genial art chief could tell freely about the great book which is to contain tlio work of a num ber of artists. In his studio -Clinton place ho looked the happy victor amidst the treasures of a newly conquered king dom , To nearly that tlmo he had con tinued unable to definitely assure himself of the character In which tjio treasures In every case were to show up. That was the reason he was reticent and denied his confidence on this subject to men who loved him. him.Tho The book , ns Mr. Millet explained , will be published in twenty-five parts. U Is to bo Issued by a company organized for the purpose the Columbian Memorial Publica tion society. The title Is as follows : "Tho Book of the Builders" with the sub-title , "Being the chronicle- the origin nnd plan of the World's fair ; the architecture ot the buildings nml landscape ; of the work of construction ; of the decoration and em bellishments and of the operation. " This publication , Mr. Millet' states , has been a uchumo In the mind of Mr. Burnham ever since ho got well Into the work In Chicago. In the active constructive period. "It Is really. " ho continues , "the outcome of a refusal on the part of the exposition au thorities to publish his report for wide cir culation. This would have cost $100,000. They were not ready to agree to piich CM expenditure , nor could It bo expected that they would do so for purely educational purposes. The motive was then prompted to do this privately with a plan to inako public the history of the construction of the exposition work In not too technical a man ner. ner."That was the broad Idea ot the enter prise. When considering the means U was Awarded Highest Honors World's Fair. Bakin Tbeonly I'ure Cream of Tartar Powder , No Auiiuonia ; No Alum. in Millions of Homes AQ Years tlie Standard * found best to pMw this work In the linnds of artlst.i. Thonrdlimry way would bo to. wrllo the history and Illustrate this with photograph * . IHititb supplement the writ ten record wlthtftkBtchoB by artists would give an Indlvldtuli and art Interest to ba prized. "A photographconcession was Riven by the exposition to arn.oOlclal . photographer. The record of the n.xx > . IUon as It exists In Inrpo photographs wnsMlmlted to the work of thla single person. IfmrtUts nlshcd to take pho tographs they could only do so with small ko daks. Now. official photographs , however good they may lln In their way , arc not like those taken from iin artistic point of view. Therefore , to satisfy the people of sensitive taste. It Is needfhl to have something other than the dull photographs. " ThlH "something other" Is to be a book con taining 100 reproductions In fac-slmtle colors of original paintings. The \\ork In these sketches Is by nrthts of eminence. "Tho series begins , " im Mr. Millet states , "wth the choice of the site , and goes through to the end of the exposition. This arrange ment gives It a human Interest. Here Is a sketch of the site of the Administration build ing. This Is Whlttpinore's 'Old Vienna. * He could not put the figures In while there , with the rush of movement , but painted In figures afterward. Mr. Coleman wus out theio about a year. Hare Komi was there a good deal , and made his sketches , which he has since finished. Hassam's were nil painted on the spot. J. Kranels Murphy was n Chicago boy , and used to painting In that locality. Wo asked him to do the landscapes. Krank Rus sell Oreen WHS out there a good deal. So was Thomas Moran. and we have good things from him. H. Uolton Jones was out , there a good deal. Kranels C. Jones was. also , and so was Dlashfiehl. I was there n year and a half ; the only one I have finished BO far Is that statue of the republic. " This stood on the easel , n beautiful work over which the artist has thrown the witch ery of poetic Imagination. The other paintIngs - Ings shown were of a high order , and Mr. Millet viewed one after another with con stantly Increasing delight : He ran a fore linger fondly down over the names of his list of artists which wiis'sproad before him on the table. Ho said them over In the tone of ono who offers thanksgiving prayer : Ctirren , Ulashfield. the two Joneses , Theodore Hobln- son , Whlttemore "who did very well In deed" Krcderlek Dlelmnii , Kenn , Gilford. Cblldo Hassmaii "who lias done some of the very best things" Helnhart Smedley , Harry 13. Snell and T. do Thulstriip. " Hut these were not half the cherished names. "You will ngrco with us , " the artist said , "that no such congregation of artists have ever been united In any piibllo.itlon. The men who made the decorations reproduce their own work. "The point of chief Interest Is that so many painters are working on the same thin * ; , making In a serious way a record of their different Impressions all under a single Impulse. I have never known of men workIng - Ing on anything In the same way. It you have any account ot such a thing In art or literature wo will say no more about It. "The work , " he said , "Is In a perfect free spirit of fraternal cooperation.Vo have been trying to build the bonk as the fair was built. It Is put on an entirely artistic basis. Wo do not tell a- man to do $100 dollars worth of work. We want each to do his very best work for his own reputation as for that of the book. "In the same way that the fair was built by calling together the architects of the country , our hook Is being built by artists. The work Is different some Impressionistic , Komo elaborate , some In sketches but all Individual. " Frank J. Stitctlffe , stenographer , has moved to 232 lice building , telephone 097.

There Is only ono way known to the world of avoiding a cold or chills , and that Is to use a good , tiuro , strong stimulant. Nothing ordinary will do.
