Clement Bainbridge will bring
his famous company in "Alabama"
to Lloyd's on Monday evening of
next week. This is welcome news
for our theatre-goers. The scene,
the sentiment, the surroundings of
Alabama" are all of the south
after the war. The entire action
is out of doors. The play is poetic,
refined, simple, and full of delicate
tenderness. There are no blood
and thunder parts, but the story
told is interesting-. Mr. Thomas is
the first dramatic author to catch
the dreamv fancy of the south
without doing" violence to the
natural sentiment and humanity of
that region. "Alabama" has, it is
said, all the quaint delicacy of a
pastoral, yet deals faithfully with
tact, its poetry being" the simple ex-
oression ot erennine character.
Every sentiment expressed in the
play is on an exalted plane, in keep
ing with its brilliant literary char
acter, the superior excellence of the
actors. The Clement Bainbridge
company, now in the fourth year of
its successful career, is well known
and includes Mr. Bainbridge
himself, Fred Mower, Harry M.
Allen, L. P, Hicks, W. M. Wads-
worth, .Robert Conness, F. W. Ken
sil, Francis Nelson and the Misses
Ethel Irving, Helen Weathersby,
Florence Crosby and Kate Dooling-.
The new Union Pacific ice
house is nearly completed and in
order to rush the work forward sev
eral additional men were put to

quite a mammoth one and will hold
nearly 4,000 tons or ice.
The Mormon elders, who it
they left town as reported, remained
away but a short time, made a

yesterday. The elders seem, to be
very persistent in xneir enons xo

ings of their church.

The Methodist Sunday-school has
in preparation a very pretty cantata
which will be given at Keith's Hall
on Christmas eve, December 24th.
Entertainments given by
iolks are always interesting-
cute, and the cantata will be no ex
ception to the rule. Tickets willbe
furnished the general public at fif
teen cents each.
Is Hot an Applicant.
Street corner gossip has it that
R. H. Langford is an applicant for
the post office, and that he made a
trip east in the furtherance of his
interest in that direction. Mr.
Langford wishes it distinctly under
stood that he is not, never has been
nor will he be a candidate for the
post office or any other position in
this town or county, and that all
reports of that kind, so far as he is
concerned, are utterly without
"Will ?eed the Children.
As has been the usual custom
the Episcopal Sunday-school will
have a large and well filled tree on
Christmas evening-, preceded by
songs and recitations. Following
the tree exercises, a turkey supper
will be served to the children in the
guild house. The scholars are look-ing-
forward with much pleasure to
not only the tree but to the
elegant supper as well. On this
occasion the south and north side
schools will be united.
Beady Tor tie Holiday Trade.
Perhaps never in the history of
the city have the stores been so well
supplied with those articles which
are in demand at Christmas times,
and best of all the goods are marked
at exceedingly low prices. There
are none so poor in pocketbook but
that they will be able to purchase
remembrances of one kind or an
other for their relatives and friends.
It is really a treat to visit the stores
and see the many pretty and useful
articles which are offered for sale,
and it must be evident to all that
there is no need of sending" out of
town for Christmas present.

evening next, and after the election
will indulge in a social, at which
sandwiches and coffee will be served

They Deserve to be Boasted.
It frequently happens that when
young" men become intoxicated and
conduct themselves in such a man
ner as to be taken before a police
magistrate, the relatives and friends
of the young men call at the news
paper offices and request that noth
ing be said of the matter. The
relatives and friends of such
young" men are no doubt en
titled to sympathy on such occa
sions, but The Tribune holds that
if the young" men do not have suf
ficient respect for themselves and
relatives and friends to keep out of
drunken brawls, they should be
