speed nnd ran into the rear cm ) of the pas
senger train , smashing several freight cars
and piling a * half dozen of them up promiscu

send a flagman back to stop the freight , and
while proper signal lights were on the rear
of the passenger and wore seen by the en
gineer and fireman , yet they supposed the
train was moving , nnd did not discover the
contrary until they ran into the passenger
train. Fortunately no one was injured , nnd
In a few hours the wreck was cleared away
and trains running as usual.

A dozen raw were placed before Justice
Shurz yesterday morning. Ho did not tnko
rilndly to the dish nnd disposed of it In short
rdcr.
J. M. Hall and J. H. Smith , two young
'cllows , were held for trial on the charge of
committing a nameless crlmo on Thomas
Miller , n colored lad. Miller was held as a
witness. Pat O'Day ' was fined $3.10 and had
ot the wherewith to liquidate the cxpcnso
.f his drunk. Henri Schmidt went hack
.nto the sweat box in the same condition.
Tom Brown nnd Charles Uoss wore held for
rial on the charge of disturbing the peace.
J. D. Grnbor had an attack of the dizzies , and
answered to the roll call. Ho fared no bet-
er than the others. Thomas Hyncs was too
drunk to know the court was in session and
: io was loft to dream of hot Scotch nnd
nakes until this morning. Louis Hamilton
and C. Mitchell , two tramp printers , sought
"orgetfulness In the bowl , but they struck
' 301' before their "string" was out. They
were "looked up" with a "dutchmnn" for
four days. Oscar Sprink was hold as a fugi
tive from Justice. Ho is wanted by Ne
braska authorities mid was locked up until
their arrival.
Two cyprians were run In and "put up"
for their appearance. Efllo Morgan released
n 112.00 forfeit for drunkenness. The other
was Franklo Campbell , who was taken down
in a hack during the previous evening. She
was drunk , profane , obscene , etc. , and let
herself loose at the city Jail In a way that
made the bricks rattle and the steve pipe
turn black for shamo. A friend of the fair
and frail ono attempted to bribe the city pa
pers to keep the name of his beloved out
from the public gazo. So It seems thcro js
some little scnso of Hhamo left in that part of
the world yet. A slnglo little buzzard dollar
was the prlco ho set upon the favor , but Tun

to give the news Just the same.

Ono of the busiest men in the city

Rapid .Justice.
The case of Hodefer vs Day was taken up
in the district court yesterday morning , and
after a short argument submitted to the
court , who took It under advisement. The
case of Stcelc vs City of Council Bluffs for
damages resulting from the extension of
Fifth avenue through the bind to Glenn nvo
nuo was then called. The city attorney
agreed that the city should puy $2 , : X ) , and
the court lilled out a verdict to that effect ,
and the Jury was sent out to sign it. In the
afternoon a writ of error case was the only
ono for consideration. The papers could not
bo found , and It was thought that the case
was submitted to Judge Thorncll , who had
taken them away with him ,
The Steele danmgo case goes on record as
being disposed of in the least time of any
civil case over tried in full process of law.
The Jury was empanelled , witnesses exam
ined , arguments made , charge given to the
Jury , verdict returned and read in open
court all in a little less than Uftcenininut.es.
The great west still retains its reputation for
the rapid administration of Justice. Cases
are frequent where criminal trials and exe
cutions nave been completed In half an hour ,
but now a civil case goes through all of the
usual wearying details of court , and a suit
for uamagcs , which general consumes an un
usual amount of time , Is carefully considered
and finally disposed of in less than half that
time.
Pottawattamlo county is certainly entitled
to continue nibbling at the prize bun. If any
district court in the country can show a bet
ter record , now Is the time for it to assort
itself , or forever after held its peace.

that "No. 0" was off on "special duty. " In

SOME QUEER PEOPLE.
Mnnncrfl and Customs of the Natives
In ItrltlHh Honduras.
An American gentleman residing in
Belize , British Honduras , who attended
in ollicial spread , has told mo all about
t , writes a" Philadelphia Record cor-
cspondent. It was hold in u largo ar-
jor , erected for the pui'Done , of wild
cane stalks , thatched with straw. As
usual , Hi" men retained their hats and
imokcd incessantly between and dur
ing every course. Tortillas wore con
tinually sent in , hot from the griddle
made b'y women secreted in a hut borne-
where in the rear and piled in nstcam-
ing heap in front of the alcadi , who
distributed them around with an easy
ind graceful shuttle , something as an
3xpert player deals his cards. Now
and then fresh water was passed in
mugs , it being the fashion for eaeli to
lill his mouth , drnw it noisily to and
fro between his tooth , then eject it
upon the lloor. The menu , as nearly as
can bo rendered in English , was as fol
lows :
CICUlir.TTIIS.
Caldo ( broth ) , with garlic , chili nnd cigar
ettes ,
Sopa Stewed in grease and garnished with
chili.
Cigarettes.
Pucharo Stuff of every description , fish ,
flesh and fowl , seeds , pods , green iruits ,

The etiquette of Santo Toribiro ball
rooms is peculiar. The ladies sit around
the room , their multiplicity of stiff
skirts making them look like so many
Dutch cheeses , while the men remain
outside in groups until the dancing is
about to begin. When the lirst strains
of the marimbra mourniug and de-
, airing as the wail of a lost boul an
nounced the opening of the ball , ono of
the sandalled and batted gentlemen ad
vances to the middle of the lloor ,
on the way thereto care
lessly nodding to the charmer of
his choice , and she leaves her
seat and goes to face him , standing a
few paces distant. Then they pot-form
a rapid /.apetoro , scarcely moving the
body , though their feet are Hying like
mad , for till the world like a pair of
jumping jacks , executing all manner
of pigeon wings , jigs and double shuf
fles. When she gets enough of danc
ing she roturus to her scat without so
much as an adieu to the gallant , while
ho , without stopping for a moment iu
the everlasting jig , nods to another
lady to come and play Joan to his
Darby. lie is expected to keen on ,
without an instant's pause , until the
music ceases , and often it is continued
a long lime , as a test to the young man's
endurance.
It was in British Honduras that I first
attended a volori , or the ceremony of
watching with a corpse. The family
homo consisted of a single long anil
narrow apartment , rounded at each cud ,
with earthen floor , and roof thatched
with guano leaves. From the cross
poles hung a few hammocks , and in the
middle of the room , upon a rude bier
made of two boards upheld by casks ,
lay the dead woman , with a wee infant
clasped in her arms. The face of the
mother , who could not have boon
more than fourteen years old. was calm
ami peaceful , but that of the baby was
terribly distorted , as if terrified with
its brief look on life. Fresh flowers
wore scattered upon the scarlet blanket
that partially covered the still figures ,
lighted candles stood at the head and
foot , and near by sat the sisters and pa
rents of the dead woimuisilent and sad.
Inquiring why the husband and father
was not ainong the mourners , I was
carelessly informed , as though it was
nothing to cause remark , that la
probaorta ( the poor , dear girl ) had
never been wedded , and as for the
father quion saboy A great crowd oc
cupied the house of mourning , laughing
and jesting OH though the occasion was
ono of rejoicing rather than sorrow.
Many wore playing cards. Outside ,
under a pomegranate treerefreshments
wore spread , and music and uproar resounded -
sounded in startling incongruity with
the dread mystery of death ,
' \Vhon legal marriages occur in this
region the parents of the couple make
all the arrangements between them
selves. The tender passion takes
early root in the tropics , and it is not
uncommon to sco a bride and
g oem both under fourteen years ,
When the boy wants to got
married ho tells his mother all
about it. She talks with the father ,
and if both are willing to accept the
girl as their daughter , they rouair to
the house of her parents , taking with
them a chiquihuito of fowls , fruit ,
broad , ears of dried corn and strings of
poppers. They organi/o a sort of pro
cession , com posed of their relatives and
friends , headed by a baud of musiothus
publicly proclaiming their intention.
It is good form for the girf's ' mother
to politely refuse the lirst request until
she has had time to consult the maiden
as to her wishes in the matter , and to
find out what her own friends may
think of it. Sue sends the procession
homo completely in the dark as to the
result of its mission. It the answer bo
irrevocably unfavorable , she simply
sends back to the parents of the wouul-
bo lever their basket , with contents un
touched. If , on the contrary , she bo in
clined to entertain their proposals , in
the course of a week or two she sends
to them another chiquihuito lilled with
similar offerings.

pany or individual find a race of people
more deserving , more faithful than wo
tire ? Give us the same chauco with
similar treatment and wo would make
as good engineers , liremeu , conductors
anil brakemun as any white man Uod
over inudu. Wo arc discriminated
against too rigidly. Something
must bo done. Wo may run as fire
men for a life time ; wo will never bo promoted
meted to the position of engineer. Wo
may run as brakemou for a lifetime ; wo
will never bo promoted to the position
of conductor or anything else bettor
than brakomeii. Wo may run as sleep
ing-car porters for sixty years and we
will never be uromoted to the position
of sleeping-car conductors , because it is
too easy for us and the , puy is too high
for the colored man to receive. We are
intrusted with cars both as conductors
and porters , better known'as porter-5n-
eharge , with the sime' ' authority as ; i
conductor , but receive only one-half of
a conductor's pay. Why i | it ? I will
toll you : The color of our skin is a crime
to us and brands us ns-uon-promotublo
objects. Now , as to labor organisations ,
they are very much like becfot ) societies
in our free'America ; they all , except
the knights of labor , discriminate
against us on account of our color. The
Brotherhood of Locomotive ! Engineers ,
the Brotherhood of Loconjotivo Firo-
moti , the Brotherhood of Railway
Brakemen , the Switchmen' * unionand ,
J believe the order of Railway Con
ductors , all discriminate against the
colored man and brother. In their
constitution they prohibit us from be
coming members. Lot us be as expe
rienced , over so intelligent and reli
able , our only crime is we are colored.
Wo do not blame the high ollicials of
the different railroads , but to the con
trary we believe they are favorable to
our promotion and advancement to well
paying positions on account of our faith
fulness to those who treat us with
consideration. Ono tiling is certain
that the members of those different
brotherhoods are not iu favor of our
promotion or advancement in any
respect. I am reasonably certain that
the public would bo glad to see colored
men treated iu all branches of rail
way service as white men lire now
trcatedthon they could start on a journey
from ono place to another and would
not fear any railroad tie-up. Thcro are
now engaged in various capacities in
the railway service 12,000 colored men ,
and that is a very low estimate. A vast
number of us have served our respective
companies for years. Wo have no desire -
sire to ask our companies for anything
that would hurt their interests to grant ,
but wo do think that deserving colored
railroad mon should bo promoted if
found competent , regardless of auy
brotherhood.
The United Brotherhood of Railway
Porters of the United States and Can
ada , is now in its second year of oxist-
anco. Its aims and objects is to culti
vate a bettor understanding with all
colored railroad men ( but we do not dis
criminate against a man on account of
the way God made him ) to promote the
interest of those who give our members
employment ; to raise a fund to care for
our nick and distresi-od members ; to
bury our deceased brothers and care for
their families when left dependent ;
to bettor our condition in whatsoever
way is honest , just and right.
Wo appeal to the American public on
account of right , justice and fair play to
condemn all organizations that strive
to keep a man in poverty and that dis
criminate against him from making an
honest living ou account of bis color , as
wo all well know that it costs one
American laboring man as much to live
as another. Wo appeal to the railroads
and sleeping car managers to give us
the same chance of uromotion as ether
mon are givou by them [ and they will
have no cause to regret it. '
And ono word to our brotherhoods
jwhito ) ; it may bo to 3/0111' / ' respective
interests to do away with "none but
twouty-ono years of ngij uiftl white are
admitted members" injyour constitu
tion , or the day may como that you will
bo berry for it and gay like Jho Gorman
proverb "that procrastination of a good
deed has often brought ronoiitonco. "
Wo colored mon desire your favors and
also your friendship , and I hope , and so
does every colored railroad man in
America , and if you will'read the hand
writing ou the wall you will accept our
offer anO do away with color prejudice in
your respective organizationswhich are
for the elevation of labor , because wo
have brain and muscle , and it must bo
respected. It may bo quite a while be
fore your radicals will heed com
mon sense and rouson , but remember -
member human slavery existed in
America 245 years , and wo are free
to-day from being' bought and sold. Wo
are American citizonsand laboring men
and cannot afford to discriminate against
each other. The United Brotherhood
of Railway Porters invites all railroad
mon to join with thorn. Wo do not be
lieve in strikes and know nothing can bo
gained by engaging In them but loss
which can never bo regained , and a bad
