'fused at a Restaurant.
Mr. Rice of Chicago, who has been
railroading for the past twenty four
years, reports, that while in Wheeling,
W. Va., last Monday he met with
first refusal in a restauiant. It was a
greater insult from the fact that the
restaurant is owned by two colored
men Yates and Williams at No.
1402 Market street. Mr. Rice went in
and sat down at a table, but was roughly
informed that Colored people iwere not
served in the "white folks" dining room
and that if he wished anything to eat he
would have to go up stairs to a room set
apart for Colored people. This he re
fused to do and leaving the place, he
went to a first class restaurant owned
by a white man and was served without
question. Such Colored business men,
who discriminate against their people
are a disgrace to their race.
Now is the soulful time when the hap
less married man covers his Sunday suit

the saddest of the year." But in mov

always escape discomiort by taking the
