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-.

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 foundation. "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.

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 Heimie's SPECIAL SALE .

Milton D 00 little, of this city, some time afo received a letter from the Jacksonian Club of Omaha citing- him to appear on Dec 12th and show cause why he should not be expelled from that organization on account of the part he took in the recent fight for sound money.

I find that I will be in excellent com- anv. and that my head will fall into the -as:et alone: with those of voor president. at least three out of seven of your board of directors, and at least two out of five of your executive committee. It is very evident that you. and those who agree with you. do not as yet fully compre hend of what stuff gold democrats are made. Our idea of party fealty is not that of slavish submission to the behests of self-coagtitsted party leaders, who may. aided by a lalse sentiment, temporarily eain control of the party machinery. Our idea is this, expressed most cogently oy tne - Dara or Avon. this a cove an: to tmne own sett oe true: And it must follow, as the night the day: Thou canst not then be false to any man." These are the motives that actuated us. and "if that be treason, maie the most of it." Your position, if followed to its logical con clusion, would mean this, that if enough tree silver republicans had left their party, aad come to you. to nave torcea a ruga protective tariff piant in the Chicago platform . you would still have voted the ticket. That may be your idea of a democrat, but it is not my idea ot an Independent American citizen. In my opinion, were Andrew Jacks oa alive ami a member of your club, you would be obliged to expell him too. v ery respecrruuy. MTT.TOy DOOUETTT.y. petitioned for by A. B. Hall was al lowed.
