The Bee's special correspon
dent says: A great many letters
are being" received bv Senator
Thurston daily from- 'his Nebraska
constituency asking for his opinion
upon the subject of holding local
elections for the purpose of deciding
among the stalwart republican
voters of that place their prefer
ence for postmaster. These letters
have become so numerous that
Senator Thurston has. outlined a
policy to one of his friends in this
state, taking the ground that such
elections would be without warrant
of law, and would tend not only to
a corrupt vote, but would hardly be
regarded as a fair test of anv one
person's popularity. He stated to
the Bee representative that
he was opposed to submitting" ail
such appointments to any kind of
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.

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.
