To the 1'Mitor of the UXK ,
There Is a matter which I think cugh
to bo ventilated , and I ask your attention
as well as that of the public , to a few
facts hlch I want to present relative to
the case of Air. Mnyera whowas tried anc
nent up to the county j ll last frock , on
un nllcj.'od charge of obtaining money
under false pretenses , The facts In the
ciso aru these : On July IG.h Meyers
went to the commission store of D. A
Hurley ou Dodge street , and bargainee
for seventy-fivo boxes of pear ; . lie aolc
that ho could not p y for the poirs all at
onca . but would do BO as fai
aa ho could. Thla wai testified to
by Bleycra and hla friends , though the
either sldo dlengroa. Meyer
piii $20 and coming whh six men a in
their wAgoni took away sixty boxe *
Coming u toeond tlnu for moro boxes 01
fruit , another payment of $ G3 wai rnado ,
It was proven that Hutley hnd then told
Meyers that he could pay the balance
Then the peara wcro sold , Thereat of the
) ores were obtained thnt day , and on the
7th Meyers wont to Ilorloy and told
iim th t the pcnrs were o ! no accannt a
rgo portion of them but that ha would
i y the balance on them next weok.
lurley grow angry , and ea'.d ' if Meyers
didn't pay Immediately ha would have
ilm arrested. IIo c rried ont hia threat
and Bloyors waa tried and sentenced
o pay the costs of the
rial , to make reatUntlon double
, ho amount of property , fcud to bo Im
prisoned In the county j U 20 dsjs.
fudge Stenberp did not consider the tea-
Iraony introduced by the defenao , and la
mown to h vo remarked after the trial :
'You RuasUna cause mo a good deal
of trouble , and I propose to make an
example of you. "
But the worat la to bo tcld :
That same evening ( Saturday ) after
Meyer had been committed to jail , I
with J. Kendls and II. Greenberg called
on Judge St nberg and told him that
wo wanted to secure Meyer's release on
jail and offered htm a good bond ,
[ lo told us that ho wnnt-
od to oat cupper , and asked us to wait.
After ho had finlnhod his eupper , ho came
out and in a blustering way said , "Get
out of note , you bloody shoenlot , 1 don t
want you around hero. ' The consequence
a that although n gocd bond has been
oiTerod , Meyers la still in jail.
I will venture the asset tion thnt Judge
Stonborg would not talk about hla fellow
countrymen the way ho doca about the
Jews. It seems to mo that his action la
n this case , a Ihgrant violation of the
; rnata which dtvolvo upon him as
a man put In hla proaont position tD see
thnt everybody brought before hlm to

John Vallon , the speaker , addressed
Officer John Tnrnbnll yesterday morning
shortly after the arrival of Iho "Q'1 train
from Chicago , In a very disconnolato
manner , and being pressed to unbosom
aom himself ou the topic of hla troubles
It appears that Vallon is a farmer liv
ing ncnr Rock Island , 111. , and baj a girl
young nnd rather handacm ? , but who Is
not bloated with qnita the dlecrotlon that
aho ought to have. Some time ago Vellon
employed ta a ccmmon farm baud a
young man , named William Gillia. The
young man , who la passably good look
ing , exercised seine sort of strange faclna-
tlon over the Mlaa Vallon , nnd it was not
long before she was deeply in love witfi
him. The parents of the young miaa ,
who is but seventeen years old , coon saw
how things wcro going and made up their
minds that Glllis' discharge waa Inevita
ble , as being the only meana of breaking
up the love affair. Accordingly , ho was
told that his services were no longer
needed. Ho loft the neighborhood , for
the next faw days , but on Monday , the
13th , returned with a horao and buggy ,
took the girl , and drcvo rapidly to town.
The couple took the next train to
Chicago , where for a time nil trace
of them was lost.Vhllo In Chicago
Mr. Vallen received a telegram from
homo Informing him that young Gillls
had conCdod to a friend that bo Intended
to como to Omaha with the girl and get
married. Mr. Vallon started immedi
ately for Omaha , arriving hero the latter
part of last week. He has elnce been
scouring the city for the runaway couple ,
and watching all the out-going and In
coming train ; . Not the ( lightest traca p
the runaways hasbaen discovered , nnd in
all probability by this tlmo they are enjoying
joying lifo aa man and wife. It is nol
probable that they wore married In
Omaha , as the county iadgo has hsuoc
no license to any one by the name of
Glllis. Mr. Valion will leave for his 111
Inola home to-night.

son , the fireman , who hid turned around
o get sonio wood , sung our , "Groan Scot !
ook nt that rattler. " " 1 jumped , " aald
Iho engineer , "as ho uttered the worde ,
and to tny horror saw n tremendous rat
tlesnake climbing down from the tender
with half hla body over the p'tUform. '
My hair commenced to crowd my cay oil'
my head , and for to say I was scared
doesn't begin to express U. Jim gave n
yell , and when I looked around two seconds
ends later to see what he was doing , I
saw the rattler crawling Into the cab.
3ut Jim waa no where to ba Been. He
lad jumped oil'and left mo. Ipullodback
ho throttle and leaped over the enako ,
vhlch rattled oa 1 made the jump and
andcd In the tender. Standing on a log ,
! watched that aiiAko take poeaoaalon of
ho cab , which ho did without any core-
nony. The steam waa not completely
ahutoff.aud . knowing that Ilia train full
of passengers was at the mercy of that
snake , 1 started back toward the cab
with a stick in my hand , when the rat-
ler hearing the noise I made , ole-
voted hia tail and rattled in a
mighty lively fnsLiou. That settled H.
jy thla tlmo. . wo Ind crowed the
mountain and were sailing along pretty
Ivoly. No. 0 was wailing for us t Ste-
vonaon , and 1 know that If that muko
run the engine till wo got there , the cor
oner of the town would bo kept busy for
a week. Crawling over the tender and
making my way Into the postal car , 1
mrrlodly told the story to Charlie Hon-
denon , the messenger , and then to Frank
VrmstroEg , the cxprcsanwn. Wo
icld a hasty consultation , and de
cided that something had to ba done , and
done quickly. The train waa moving
along lively , and the thought of No. 0 at
Stevenson made us fairly wild. Arming
onraelvcs with pistols furnished by the
postal and expreaamon , wo carefully
crept ont to the tender and looking into
the cab taw that doggoned rattler
stretched ont on Iho board by the
window. Well it didn't take more than
three seconds for us to put three
bnllols Into his carcass. They struck
him so quickly and BO thoroughly that
before ho could got a chance to rattle ho
was BS dead as Hector. Grabbing a
stick , I jump3d Into the c b. throw the
snake out of it and got hold of that
throttle. Well , to make a long story
short , I landed old " 50" on tlmo at Stev
enson ; and , Btrange to say , the first fel
low I Baw was the Coroner , but thank
heaven , there weren't any Inquests for
him to hold.

A NCAV til Iit Per Trains ,
A successful experiment has been mad
in Germany of lighting railroad train
with electricity , The dynamo waa driven
by the axtlo of the engine. At high
apeed the lampa remained In circuit
When the epoed waa reduced below
eighteen miles per hour tbo lampa were
thrown out of circuit , and the
current waa supplied direct from
the accumulator ; . During the day
the lamps wtra thrown out of cir
cuit , and the accumulators were charged
by the dynamo when the train waa In
motion , Thla anpplied the train with
twelve Incandecent llghto , and there were
enough fur two or three moro iampo.
The apparatus wolga snino 1,200 poucda ,
and cost some 500 ; the cist of fittlnt ,
each car for ths light was § 10. The ex
periment Is deemed a perfect success anc
potnts to the dty In the near future
when the fear of cremation In caao o :
accident will bo removed from the
minds of travellers on railroad trains.
