He stated to the Bee representative that he was opposed to submitting" ail such appointments to any kind of vote. A DELIGHTFUL PLAT- The Clement Brainbridge com paav will present Augustus Thomas' delightful -southern plav, "Alabama." at the opera honse on Monday evening of next week. Mr. Thomas has furnished a strong ar gument against the statement that the native born writers do not lend themselves to the literature of the stage. American people want plays ttat they can understand plays taat bring before them the people; the customs and the country they fcnow. r oreign plays are built on toreign ideas, concieived in a for eign spirit, and are out of sympa thetic connection with the American people. It is in this that Mr. Thomas has made his success. He has given the people a play that they can. understand; he has re spected their prejudices; he has been true to American ideas. 'Alabama" does not abound in stirring scenes, melodramatic situations and de clamatory lines. It moves along as quietly as the life it reveals. There is a vein ot quaint and subtle humor and it is never forced or coarse- It is tree to the life it oicturesut is bright in dialogue, clean in plot, direct in storv and interesting in characters. It is redolent with the sound of nature. It is something to think of with delight this idel ot the south not alone for the passing pleas ure it "gives the spectator, but f or what it means to the American stage. In itselt it has the subtle charm, poesy. It brings with it the soft airs and dreamy quietude of the somnolent south. It appeals to the eye with a series of pictures breathing- chivalry and sentiment, twin characteristics of the ardorous southron; to the ear with the musi cal dialect whose spell is potent, and to the mind with a harmonious blending of all these mellowing in Stxances. It is a veritable Grad grind who will look at 'Alabama" and not feel his soul soften and ex pand, and his heart warm with human love; and, fortunately, there are very few Grangrinds in "modern life, in almost every nature there is a cord of sentiment and poetry, which viabrates musically when rightly touched, and it " is Mr. Augustus Thomas distinction to have found the delicate manner of doing this difficult thing. "Ala bama" is his medium. AH members of Silver Leaf Camp No. 301 Royal Neighbors of America are requested to be pres ent at the next meeting Dec 23d, 1S. Important business to be transacted. Eliza M.

Henry Steele, who brought suit against the Missouri Pacific road for twenty-five thousand dollars for the loss of both legs, compromised last week during the trial for sev en hundred and fifty. Immediately after this his attorneys filed a lien on the seven hundred and fifty of four hundred, which will leave Steel just three hundred and fifty dollars net for bis pair of missing limbs. There was strong evidence that Steele was badly intoxicated when he was injured, and this accounts for the small amount agreed upon in the compromise. J. B.

He must have bondsmen who will qualify for the sum of 52, 000.000. TEST ASH HOT 5SPTTBIATI05ISTT. There was reasonable ground of excuse, if not absolute cause, for Senator Allen's vigorous defense ot the people of Nebraska and what he said in behalf of Nebraska is true of Kansas and all of the other populist-ridden states. The so called granger or populist states are parts of the republic- Whatso ever cripples their industries or weakens their credit works injur iously to the whole Union. It has been a misfortune to the country that adverse seasons and poor crops, the ill effects ot which have been aggravated by bad tariff legislation have depressed several of the west ern states; wnen tne western con sumer is straightened in purchasing power the eastern purveyor is strightened in power to employ men, and these are straightened in their power to purchase tie pro ducts of western farms.

MS paid slowly or not at alL It is unfortunate that during a a period of unavoidable irritation the western, farmers and merchants were assailed by the rogish bland ishments of demagogues that offered a fool panacea of rotten cur rency and sectional discord. But, despite the facts that a few mouthy men and irrational women spoke high-sounding words from oScial or semi-oScial altitudes and that here and there a fellow more fitted by natural endowment and by de praved associatioa for the manage ment of a chuck-a-luck game than for the interpretation of law was elevated to a judicial seat, the in tegrity of the great mass of the people remains unsotled. Most of the state judges in Kansas and Ne braska will deal justly in a contro versy between an eastern, creditor and a western debtor, and there is appeal from those who do aot. Moreover, a foreigha creditor can elect to have his cause heard ia a federal court -There is no just cause of appre hension of repodiatioa of western debts. Hardly less culpable than the western demagogues who have sought to engender hatred of the east are the eastern orators wiw are impeaching the good faith of the honest minded majority in the west. It is time that all this irrita ting clamor shall cease. The elec tions are over. A reformed tariff is in sight. The currency question is settling itself. A recurrence of propttiotts seasons reasonably may be expected. The probabilities are that the west again is about to be a factor of and a sharer ia national prosperity. Bnt, whether their lot be adverse or prosperous, the west will continue to be hoaest. Inter Ocean.
