p. in. at Gllmoro and tlio engineer and
Ihcmnn , Gentleman nnd Leonard saved
themselves by jumping. Them ncroon
tlio train fourteen cars of grain , four of
cattle and one of hogs. Tlio greater
pait of tlio grain cars were totally de
stroyed nnd their contents scattered over
tlio ground. A 'lumber of. tlio caltlo
were hrulsed and two magnificent stcors
were killed outright. The hogs were
badly hhakcn tip. 8evcr.il killed nnd the
rest taken to Hhelter at the yards near
the station.
The engine ran on tlio tics for ncnrly
nn c-iulith of a mile , then separated from
the rest of the train and shot ahead jump
ing over the cattle guard and linally
toppling over on its side. A hundred
feet behind it lay the cars on their sittes
on their heads , ctandiug even on their
edges. Some wore broken into kindling
wood , others lay across the track , \\hilo
others still forced their way through the
ends and sides of their companions.
Trucks were scattered in all directions
and other material was so wrenched as
to almost defy repair. The track was
torn into designs of all descriptions.
The train \\as running at tlio rate of
twenty mile" per hour , and it is not
known what part of It struck the cow
llrst. The engine bears no marks of the
contact , though certain parts of the cars
look as it they had mot her. Wednesday
nt 12 o'clock men wore summoned from
Pnpillion , Klkhorn , Ciilmorc , Millnrd and
Omaha to the wreck. The early morn
ing train from the west bad to transfer
Us mail and passengers.
At precisely 1 o'clock the side track
was finished and Manager Callaway.
Superintendent Dorranco and Colonel
Eddy in a special rar passed to tlio west.
They wore followed by the Missouri Pa-
cilic train and linally by the west bound
Denver , Conductor IMakesleo. It will
require a couple of days to clear the
wreck.
Mr. Dorrance , superintendent of the
eastern division of the Union Pacilic ,
Mates to a representative of the Bin : that
the charge imulo in this paper that the
company is trying to economize by re
ducing the number of section hands and
iicglecting tlio road-bed is doing an in-
Iistleo to the company. The fact is , s.iys
Ir. Dorranco , that tlio company has
during the last live or six months paid
out more mhnoy to put the road-bed in
first-class condition than during any
equal period in the previous history of
the road. The company is rapidly re
placing the Hfty-Mx-pound rails with
now sixty-pound sicel rails , and the
track is being put into as good
condition as that of any western
Tond. Passenger trains are making the
run between Umnliii and Denver in sev
enteen hours , while trains on the Iowa
roads arc making the run between the
Missouri river and Chicago , about the
same distance , in twenty-two hours. The
company has experienced some consid
erable difficulty in the Phitto valley east
of Columbus , owing to the peculiar na
ture of the ground and the heavy rains
and overflows. Gn the Hopublican Vtil-
lev there have also been overllowH. There
have been only live accidents on the
Union Pacific this year. One of them is
vet a mystery of the management , which
investigating the cases. Another was
caused by the trucks of a car breaking
down , which is liable to happen on any
road.
General Trnfllo Manager Kimball entertained -
tortained yesterday in his oflico General
Traffic Manager Stubbs , of the southern
Pacific road , who is on his way homo
from tlio cast. Some routine nmttois of
Tnuiunl interest to both roads were dis
cussed , and the old agreements wore en
tered into for the ensuing year.

How an Omaha Physician Shot to
Save.
"Talking about the Hoffman libel
suit , " said n well-known Omaha physi
cian the other day , " 1 have always had a
certain sympathy for horaothieves since
a little occurrence which happened
twenty years ago.1'
"Toll us about It , " chorused his audit
ors.
ors."I was then living in a little Missouri
town , " said the man of medicine ,
"struggling along as best I could against
adverse fate aim the disgusting healthi
ness of the community in which my lot
was cast. Horsethieving was a very
common thing in that part of the coun
try , nnd some of the iciidents of the
county in which I lived had
formed an anti-horscthicf associa
tion When a horse was stolen it became
the duty df every member of the associa
tion to thoroughly arm himself , mount
Ids steed and start in pursuit of the thief.
One day ono of the members of the
association lost a .string of three valuable
horses. The identity of the thief was
unknown , but fortunately a clue to the
, direction ho had taken was gUen by
n boy who had seen a stranger with a
unmoor of horses going west from town.
Within loss than half an hour after the
loss luul been i.llt > courctl a band of thirty
members of tlio association were In hot
pursuit of the thief , over hill , down dale
and through forests. \ \ o manage to
strike the fellow's trail about 3 o'clock in
the afternoon and followed it closely.
An halt-past 7 o'clock in the evening we
rnn ncross him in n thick clump of
bushes , the horses Muled about him ,
Wo olobcd in about him , and in less time
than it takes to tell it , the horso'thiof was
under arrest. A "court" was organi/ed
without a moment's delay , anil u trial
lasting not longer than ten minutes fol
lowed. The follow was found guilty ami
( sentenced to die. I felt sorry for the
ecump , tried to intercede in his behalf
bo was a young fel'ow ' with whom 1 hail
been acquainted with for homo time ,
nnd whom 1 know to como from highly
respected parents in Illinois. It was of
no use. The captors Insisted that ho
ninst die , nnd only laughed at my en
treaties. To mid to my dicgnst I was so-
looted as the ono to shoot him.
"Say your prayers , boy , " said ono of
the men to the young fellow who had
boon tied to u ti ce , Cin
"Tho poor ens * didn't know how to
pray , and asked nui to help him , I
didn't know anything but tlio Lord's
proyor ami tried Unit , It went so well
ami scorned to relieve the poor follow so
much that 1 repeated it several times.
"Just us I rose from my knees , the do-
tuthj of a plan wheieby 1 might feivo the
man's life Hashed into my mind , I
whispered them into his ear , and Ids
grateful look , as hope was revived in his
heart , 1 t > lmll never forgot. It was grow

barreled imiz/.lo-lomilng shotgun , and

Strny Leaves From n. Ileportcr's
Note Itook.
"It is not generally known , but it is n
fact , nevertheless , that General Grant
never wore a Grand Army of the Repub
lic badge until ho was on his way return
ing from his trip around the world. And ,
will you believe it , the honor of bestow
ing one upon him belongs to an Omahan.
This circumstance I recall with peculiar
interest , because 1 was"altncssoftho
bestowal. " The speaker was a promt *
nenlmember of the Grand Army of He-
public of this city. "You well remember
ho oontlmu'd , "that when General Grant
nnd his party reached Choveune , on
their way home , they were met by n dele
gation of Omaha citi/.ens nearly all of
whom had been through the war , some
with more , others with less distinction.
Therefore many of them members of
the Grand Army of Republic , and , as
night approached tlio rare measure
ofenjoiing a camp-fire in the Pullman
with so renowned n comrade as the gre.it
commander of the army of the republic ,
was ono to which every Omahan was
keenly alive. The subject was proposed
to ( ten. Grant and with a clmnictciistic
smile , ho gr.ielouslv assented to enter.
"Hut1 ho lemarked , " 1 have no badge. "
Thu brc.ist of nearly every other man
around him was decorated with
the emblem of the ( ! . A. U ,
while that of the general was empty.
"On the spurof the moment , > I. U. Man
chester , who wore the newest badge ,
ro o and remarked that it would iili'nni
him the gieatest pleasure and honor if
tlio general would accept the badge which
the speaker wore. Gen Grant hiuiled
one ot those assenting smiles peculiar to
him , and immediately , Air. Manchester
handed the badge in question to Gen.
Mnndcrson and that gentleman , with the
unctions grace and diguitv peculiar to
him and befitting the occasion , presented
the badge in a most entertaining speech.
The gift was accepted , the camp lire was
opened , and such a camp lire as it was ,
rich in memory and pregnant with mem
orable deeds , none sn\o those composing
it may tell. Mr , Manchester's was the
llrst and perhaps the only Grand Army
badge General Grant over wore. It was
only a few days before his departure on
his trip around the world that ho joined
the Grant post at Philadelphia. lie had
not been presented with a badge and
went without ono until the occasion of
which I have just told you. "
"Tho veteran actor Conldock is n very
gruff and unprepossessing old man to
strangers , " said Mr. C. 1) . Hess , of the
musical festival , one night last week , as
ho was ordering foaming \ Ingers for a
small party of friends. "Drinking beer
reminds me of a little incident of my ae-
aintanco with him. When ho was in
lieago a few years ago , the members of
the Owl club , the swell organi/atiou
there , tendered him a banquet. Every
thing went well for a time , though I , who
was sitting near Couldock , could see that
ho was not enjoying himself as well as
he might. Finally , just as the beer was
being passm' ' , in delicate cut glass gob
lets , the old fellow broke out , 'G
it , let's get out of this. When I drink
beer I want to bo in a place whore they
have handles on the glasses and sawdust
on tlio floor. ' "
THE MUIiKS DID IT.
Particulars of the Death of a Gnllant
Army Olllcor.
GcneralJCrook'yestordayrecivcd a letter
from Lieutenant Chas. G. Morton of the
Sixth infantry , detailing the circum
stances of the death of Captain D. II.
Murdock of that regiment , who was
drowned while crossing Grand river near
Moab , Utah , in a ferryboat. This oc-
curied some two weeks ago , it may bo
remembered , while Captain Morton was
en route to southern Utah , to protect the
settlers fiorn Indian incursions.
The river was 1300 yards wide at the
point where the crossing was made , the
current being very bwift. The ferry-boat
was an olu one. and as developments
proved , a very unsafe one. Among the
passengers carried over with Captain
Murdock | were threemulcs. When the
boat got to the middle of the stream the
animals became uniuly , and , mule-like ,
backed into the river. The feirymnn
turned to assist the man who was
sliuggling with the animals , and in his
absence the rear rope slipped oil' the
spike which held it. This threw all the
strain upon the other rope ,
which was not strong enough to
stand it. The strands began to part , and
just as the rope snapped , Capt. Murdock
seized ono end , thinking perhaps , that he
might save the boat. He was jerked violently
lently into the river , however , and before
assistance could reach him , had sunk for
the last time. The body was washed
into u canon and was never recovered.
THIS BUILDING BOOM.
Homo Pcrtlnont Pointers Thereon-
New KullcllnirB.
"Tlicro will be double * the amount of
building done in Omaha this year than in
any previous year , " said a well known
local ( architect to a reporter yesterday. It
was feared early in the season that the
stlikes would cause a collapse of the
building boom , butlifortunatoly , owing to
the good sense of our workmen here ,
such has not been the cues.
There Is every indication now
lhU : the season is to bo a tremendously
busy one. Four of the eastern builders
nro anticipating trouble on the first of
July , but I do not think theio is any dan
ger of bit Ikes in Omaha. The local brick
supply V It will bo ample for all demands
that will bo made this year. You news
paper men have been booming the town
so that the brick manufacturers , in an
ticipation of a great harvest , have been
working night and day. Many of the
yards have doubled their capacity , and
several now ones have started up. The
consequence will bo , us I have bald be
fore , tliat we shall have plenty of brick.1'
Mendelssohn & Fisher have completed
the plans for the new Paxton building ,
which Is to bo erected on the corner of
Sixteenth and Farnam. The structure
will not only bo the largest nnd hand-
somesi in tlio city , but will also como
pretty near being ono of the liueit in tlio

Yesterday's foverland passenger on
tno Union Pacilic contained n celestial
gentleman of some note. Ho was the
Chinese minister to Cuba and was ro-
tinning to his native land after an ab-
soiico of five years.
A HER reporter found him in the state
room of ono of the sleepers. He was
busy looking like a noni-sighted man
through a pair of old-rimmed
spectacles nt his railroad tickets
which were enclosed in a worn-out en
velope. There \ve-o four others of his
nationality shaiina the small apartment
with him , each of whom maintained a
ligidity of position , a iKedness of fen
lure , nnd a demeanor betokening the
greatest respect. The minister was at
tired in a long , sHto-colored bilk gown ,
reaching to the feet , while n traveling
cap of tlio h.imo material fell backward
from the top of the forehead to the base
of the brain He gave his name as Li
Hung Kwni. and though preferring
to speak in Chinese was abln without
much dillieultv to answer the reporter's
questions in English , a language witli
which tlio latter had , so to hay , a more
extensive speaking acquaintance. Ho
had been in Cuba for three years , and the
greater part of the other two years ho
had spent in travelling through the An
tilles am } South Amurie.i. Ho was on his
way to his homo In China , and alter a rest
of about two years would probably re
turn to this pai t of the world. From the
easy , confident man nor in which Mr.
Kwat expressed himself it was evident ,
at least so far as he was concerned , that
the Chinese department of state had n
tender feeling for him or was disposed to
tro.it its olllcers to a liist-elass , easy tiniis.
The other celestials in thu state room
were his servants , with the exception of a
bright little cherub of Chinese extrac
tion , who in about the six- years that it
had lived , had acquired considerable of
American airs and manners' .
Alounted Sword Content.
A friend of the celebrated athlete. Dun

"It Captain Muguiro means business ,
let him meet mo this evening (17th ( ) .
8 o'clock , at the Paxton house , and I will
put up ! ? 500 backing Duncan C. Ross
against him in a mounted swoul contest
Mr. Ross' engagements prevent him from
postponing the contest lounger than four
days , should you desire it to take place
hero. The contest may take place either
in public or private , as you please.
Yours truly , Ronnur STANTOX.
The Captain Maguiro. for whoso bene
fit this "deli" is posted , is a military man
connected with the army at this point.
Ho is said to bo nil export swordsman
and desirous of trying a contest with the
great athlete. If the contest does como
oil' , it will undoubtedly be an interesting
ono. The sport is novel and exciting ,
having but recently been introduced into
this country.
Will Try n Habeas Corpus.
Ed. Crowell , Esq. , made application
to Judge JNovillo yesterday to secure
the release of Win. Fielder , the accused
murderer of Ruble , on a writ of habeas
corpus. The writ alleges that Fielder is
unlawfully held on a warrant sworn out
by Wm.Coburn charging him with being a
fugitive from justice. The charge upon
which he is sought to be hold by the
sheriff is that of aefrauding a man out
of ? 80 in a trade at \ \ arrensbutg , Mo.
Fielder's attorney alleges that the amount
is not sufficient to constitute a felony
under the laws of Nebraska , and that
consequently ho can not be held under
the Jaws hero. The application will bo
argued to-day. fc
A
Wants a Divorce from Julius.
Mrs. Bertha F. Festnor filed a petition
in district court yesterday asking , for a
divorce from her husband , Julius T.
Fcstner , to whom she was married in
March , 1880. The petition alleges that
ever since her marriage her husband has
treated her in a cruel and inhuman man
ner , and on several occasions drove her
from home into the streets , and has re
fused to contribute to her support. She.
therefore asks for a divorce , and to bo

as to cause the whole of my premises to

why is it that I am not allowed a voice
in this matter ? I bought my homo and

Now I am compelled to sit quietly and

THE " TERRIBLECOWBOY. .
A Wyoming ntlltorvSrtys n Good Wortl
In HlBJUrthnlf.
The Rowdy West , Fort Fetter matt ,
Wyoming : If there M n clnss of people in
tliis country that has bcnn misrepresented
and maligned nnd slandered and nbused ,
tmblicly nnd privately , -through the col
umns of the press nnd almost from the
pulpit , it is the class known ns western
"cowboys. " It has been n favorite
amusement of people in the states , and
especially those who never saw a "cow
puncher , " and who wouldn't know the
difference between n "cowboy" and the
president of the United States , to dcrido
and hold them up to thogax.e of the pub
lie as desperadoes and outlaws aiming
whom Jesse James and Captain KIdd
would bo respectable in comparison
During the past six months the writer
hereof has bceu thrown much in the soci
ety of the so-called "cowboy" of Wyo
ming , Dakota and western Nebraska ,
and lias had ample oppot ( unity to learn
their habits , character nnd disposition ,
and we feel it to bo no more than our
journalistic duty to not only disabuse the
mind of the public relative to this sub
ject , but to refute these slanduis and de
fend the "cowboy. " who are in fact the
real gentlemen ot the country , against
the iiiMMirritntud nttneks of eastern dudes
who don't know a cow from a cactus.
What is a "cowbovv" Ho is simply a
border , or man engaged in herding and
caring for .stock. In the east a man en
gaged in that occupation is called a
"herder , " and he is considered a very
respectable person who is following a
laudable and honorable calling or livell
hood , but when ho crosses the Mlssouii
river liis eastern friends brand him us a
"cowboy" and hold him up to public
ga/.o in the light of an outlaw bristling
all over with bowie knives anil revolvers ,
who rides about the country and into
towns shooting down men without mercy
and frightening women and children oiit
of their senses. That is all the dill'ereiieo
between a western "cowboy" and an
eastern "herder" or "shepherd , " 0,110 , is
engaged west and the other east of the
Missouri river.
The "cowboy" is uo recent invention.
If we read the \\ritings of Moses , the
historian , correctly there wore "cow
boys" in the laud of Canaan long before
the "rowdyest" was discovered. Wo
think that Abram and Lot had ranches
there , "and that there was a strife be
tween the herdmen of Abrnm's cattle
and Lot's cattle. " That is the way
Mo&cs reported it for the daily press in
tlie early day , but should such a thing oc
cur hero in Wyoming to day the eastern
newspaper dudes would could out with
four line pica head lines something like
this : "Terrible battle ; among the cow
! " "Abrtiin's
boys Cowputicliers and
Lot's Bullwhackers get in a racket and
shoot each other so full of holes that
their hides won't hold straw. Abe and
Lot arbitrate , and the latter gets up and
dusts for the plains of Jordan , where
there is plenty of buffalo grass. " 'Ihat
is about thog way the morning papers
would dish it up now. Even old Saul
was a ranchman , and Doeg , and Edo-
mite from Indiana , was foreman and had
a regiment of cowboys in charge. Amos
wtisticowooy in Syria , ni.d Moses him ,
self was at the round-up in Egypt. Joel-
the cowboy , got sad and had the jimiams
because the grass "dried up on his /Jon
range , and Isaac was a "cattle king" in
Gerar. So it will bo seen that the pro-
frossion of cowboy has beeu an honor
able ono from away back.
But seriously , no people have been
more unjustly misrepresented than the
western "cowboys" orheidsmon. Some
four weeks ago , when the writer of this
was in the cast , ho was fold of a letter
that a gentleman there had just received
from his son who was traveling in the
west , and who stopped in Chadron , Nob. ,
a day or > two , in which ho stated that the
night before about fifty cowboys rode
into Chadron , captured the town , made
night hideous , tcrrori/ed the inhabitants ,
rode into saloons and other public places ,
and shot indiscriminately , and , in fact ,
caused lawlessness anarchy to reign
supremo. A few days later wo happened
to bo in Chadron and , of course , inquired
about it. The people had never heard of
it before. It was a pure fabrication on
the part of the yonnj * man who wrote
the letter. What bis object was we don't
know , but we presume ho wanted to
make himself out a hero jo the extent of
having been west and witnessed one of
the terrible cowboy raids that he had so
often read about. That is the wav all
such stories originate. Such fellows
ought to bo put to soak under the bed.
They have just seuso enough to be a detri
ment to tlio country , and not enough to
bo good citi'/cns.
Wo have been in Chadron several times
and never saw a moro quiet and orderly
town. Wo have seen hundreds of cow
boys there but never yet saw ouo commit
an act of impropriety. \ \ o have been
with them in towns , in cities , on the
ranges , in their camps , and at their re
cent round-up , ando have yet to find
the lirst ono who was not n gentleman in
every respect , and who would not treat
you as such as long as you did him. They
are mannerly , open-hearted , generous tea
a fault , and will allow no man to outdo
them in acts of courtesy , and liberality.
They will not insult a lady , no matter
what her station in life may bo , or allow
others to do so in their presence. No
knight of old was ever more bravo or
chivalrous. Of course there are occa
sionally bad men among them ; as every
where else , but they are being rapidly
weeded out. Stockmen will not employ
disreputable characters if they know it.
The men .who are now the leading men
of this territory , who fill the responsible
offices and conduct public affairs have
nearly all been cowboys at some time ,
nnd owe their success in life to their ex
perience on the ranges.
Who are the cowboys ? They are prin
cipally young men who took II. Greeloy's
advice and wont west to giow up with
the country. As thu chief industry is
stock-iaising they naturally seek employ
ment on the ranges. That is all there is
of the cowboy business , If the dudes and
snobs and fops and fools who are pictur
ing them out as roughs and outlaws

PROPHETIC LYING.
General ProntUs' AViltl Prophecies
nt n Iiaiiiict | IThlrty Yours
Ago Himllicd.
Chicago News : ' 'Did you ever sit
down and roilect on "tho progress that
has been mndo in this country during the
age of a man ? " Itwas tlio renowned
General Prentiss roiurning from Ohio ,
where lie hnd , delivered a Decoration day
address , who asked the question. Ho
then went on to say :
"It was some time in the 'OOs that I
attended n jollification mooting at Jcfi'or-
son City , Mo. JThe meeting was for the
purpose of celebrating the completion of
a railroad , and of course wine bottles
had to bo cracked and speeches made.
If the speeches had been made lirst and
the bottles cracked afterwards I would
probably not have been called on to
speak , but as it was the gentleman who
was to speak for the city of Quinoy was
too full of wine to have any wit , and I
was requested to' speak in his stead , I
saw that the company was too far gone
to listen to much seriousness , so 1 began
a series of the most extravagant proph
ecies.
"Gentlemen,1 said I , "thero are those
prcisuutho \\ill IKc to ace 5J.OOO iuhab-
tants flourishing on the banks of the
great Missouri. '
"Make it 100,000 while you're about it,1
cried one man.
"Yes,1 said another , 'you might ns well
bo killed for n sheep as a Iamb. '
" 'Tho child has already been born , ' I
continued , 'who will step into a palace
on wheels on Monday morning in New
York and uo to bed tlio next Saturday
night in San Francisco. '
'That'sn pretty still1 yarn , I thank
you , 'yelled a man nt the other end of
the table , and he proposed to drink to
the health of the man who could tell so
big a story without cracking a smile.
Tins health was drunk and \\enton. .
' "The day is coming when some one
ulll stand in Jefferson City and talk into
the very ear of ids friend in Lhcrpool. '
' "My God,1 said a half-tipsy man at
mv right , 'what a liar you'd make if
jou'd turn your attention to ill"
" 'Yes ' 1 said without
, , noticing linn ,
'and the boy now lives in Missouri who
will ouo day get up from his dinner table
and say : "Wife , where are my wings ?
1 want to jump up to Chicago this after
noon. I'll bo back for supper. ' "
"At this a perfect howl went up ; the
dishes were swept from the table and 1
was voted the most ai listic yarner in the
land.
"But now , " continued the general.
"Isn't itstrango that , although I selected
the most extravagant prophecies I could
imagine , all excepting that relating to
the wings have practical ! } * come true iiU
readyaud I am not prepared to say that ,
giay as 1 am , I .shall not live to see men
fanning the air with wings and chasing
birds iiUhnir loftiest llights. "
