THE COURIER. w .-1 POINTS IN POLITICS ( A little watermelon and a little green corn in Idaho caused a great commotion in Nebraska . last week. Senator-elect John M. Thurston had an attack of cholera morbus, and pol iticians in this state had attacks of chagrin and hope. One would not have believed that the reports of Mr. Thurston's illness would have caused so much excitement. Men who ordin arily take no interest in politics man ifested anxiety as to the real condition of the absent senator elect, and when favorable news was received there was a general feeling of relief. At one time it was reported in this city that Thurs was dead.and within fourteen minutes after the receipt of this false announ cement the politicians some of them had leapt the distances between death and burial and arrived at the point where they ware ready to con gratulate his successor. Thus it is that we are very much alive in the midst of death. How the palpitating populist heart swelled with hope those few h...

THE COURIER. I i I' M i THE PASSIiNG SHOW Mine. Rhea hiiB a new play in which she takes the part of Noll Gwyn. Rhea is just the last person in the world who should attempt to play Nell Gwyn; first because she has a vile Belgian accent and second because she in just as shapely as an ironing board, and yet she is to play naughty Nell who 6poko the most charming Knghsh of her day and whose form eclipsed the nymyliB of Diana. I should not like to see the sturdy Belgian play the part. I hare a sort of sneaking affection for Nell Gwyn. just as I have for Chatter ton. Sho was undoubtedly the first talented comedienne upon the English stage, perhaps the first actrePB of merit. When I read of her work in Florimel I feel sure that sho could have given Rosina Vokes pointers. The critics or her day unhesitatingly yielded her the palm. Even Pepys, whoso mis tress, Mrs. Knipp, was playing at a rival play house, never mentioned Knipp's acting in the same breath with Nellie's. He records in that ve...

THB COURIER. the same imposing strain. I am grow ing to loathe the word "art," though the thing itself I have seldom seen. 1 never heard an actress of taicnt say that she lived for art. One did, indeed, frankly tell me that she lived for love, but even that was better than art. Marie Corelli is Queen Victoria's favorite novelist. Any one who has read her novels can easily understand why, though I doubt if the Queen's ap proval is due to Marie's tlorid and ex aggerated style so much as to the dinner parties that Walas has given the fair novelist. T I wish that elephantine poet, Mr. William Dean Ho wells, who writes such dreary librettos to Mr. Pyle's wierd and powerful drawings, would tune his lumbering calliope to sing a dirgo for Harper's Magazine.

It was a model, and if tbe whole performance had kept up to tbat level the audience would have bad paralysis before the evening was over. There was the great Billings, who b ruling his own spirit is mightier than he that taketh a city. For that's the whole secret of Gillette's mightiness in this play, his unbroken calmness and un impeachable self control. He acts by absolutely refraining from acting. His voice never changes, his tones never betray any emotion, his face and ex pression are impenetrable and unvary ing. His cigar is absolutely the only emotional indicator he uses. When everything is all right ho smokes slowly. When harrassed he letR hio cigar go out and chews it. When ho is desperate ho puffs it until the end grows bright red and the smoke pours out like the smoke of a gas factory. Augustus Billings is a thoroughly...

V'jMM IPMKgg BBPWWPBKBCgi THE COURIER. I BY THE WAY f Just the other day a merchant in tbis city failed. It wasn't very much of a failure. It was only one store passing into another's hands. Only one man, wHo for many years has conducted a clean, honorable business and managed to maintain his credit untarnished, forced out of the place that has known him so long. Only one mb. .more added to the respectnble majority ''who ever stand a living proof of the saying that out of every hundred persons who go into business only two or three succeed. But the passing of one man through this wide and crowded thoroughfare is a calamity. No one who has not made the effort and failed knows what it is to acknowledge defeat and make an unconditional surrender; no one who has not done this can appreciate the i i.- u ii i laiamuj wumu uao ucinucu iui uiio man.

THE COURIER. 1 I 3K(K(K9 Tbo triennial convention of the Pro testant Episcopal church is now in session in Minneapolis. Lately it has been proposed to change the name of the church to the Holy Catholic church and it is the intention to discuss this proposed change t tha convention. I asked Rev. John Hewitt for his opinion on the proposition and ho made the following reply: "As a member of the general conven tion of 188G when the question came up I voted against a change on the ground that it was inexpedient. Since that timo the desire for a thorough revision of the constitution of the church has grown so strong that it has been de cided to undertake it at this general convention. It is therefore a convenient time to consider a change of the name of the church. Then again alongside of this, interest in the subject of church unity has become very great and very general. I was one of those who helped to organize the Church Unity Society in 1836 which brought about that fam ous declarat...

THE COURIER. & I POINTS IN POLITICS 9 9 9 Ho is a little man, anil ho is modest, but bis non assertiveness does not pro vent his being appreciated. The nom inee of tho republican party for judge of tho supremo court is respected by the peoplo of the state. Ho is popular with tho liar. Judge Norval applies himself closely to his judicial duties. Certainly n: ouo can accuse him of lack of concentration. He is not much of a politician, nor very much of a public man. Whatever distinction ho has earned has como to him through his services as a lawyer and judge, and I imagine his campaign will be mado solely en his official record. I do not know whether Judge Norvi.l is an advo cate of free Bilver, or a believer in what we dissenters from liryanism like to call "honest money." In fact I do not know whether ho is for high tariff or low taritr, an'1 I doubt if many repub licans know his position on theso things And it is well that this is the ccse.

It is intimated that, if desired, a Majors delegation to the state convention last year could easily bo secured in Douglas county as matters now stand. Mr. Ma. jors is constantly in the city, and there is no longer any question but that bo will shake on the Hhroud and endeavor to prove that he was not dead but sleep ing. Now every consideration of right and justice and decency renders solemn and serious judgment that Tom Majors is finally and irretrievably dead, so far as political preferment is concerned. And as The Courier has already said in a previous article, there should be some sanitary regulation to keep the dead in their graves. Has not the republican party suffered enough with the dead weights o...

Mr. Babson, for that is the writer's name, is a brave man. For it takes a brave man in this duy of aggressive womanhood to proclaim, over his own signature, that woman is sultordinate to man. Mr. Babson thinks it is a "dangerous pre sumption" for woman to claim to bo man's equal and suggests that she may soon claim to be God's equal. I would not like to be in Mr. Babson's place when the women have read his article. Hn is quite likely to find that, if she is subordinate, woman can make things mighty lively when she once gets stirred up. The closing part of Mr. Babson's communication will undoubtedly bo taken to mean that God and man are on something like an equality, with woman practically the Batno distance beneath both. This may prove to be a "danger ous presumption" on Mr. Babson's part. It is surprising than San...
