AN UNPOPULAR SCHEME.
I'elueciC:g our representation, es
AT peghlly in those States that have re
strictted suffrage, seems to be agita
ting the ninds of the Northern
or. RleprulicarF, anil which would be
clone without limit, if it was not for
the imnmense capital invested in
Southern States by monied men of
the North, who control and own the
Republican party. The Daily States
comiiienting on this question, says:
The sctheme to reduce the repre
sentation of those Southern States
_ that have restricted the suffrage is
so unpopular even In the North ann
Shas evoked such vigorous protests
at from large financial and. commercial
interests that the Republican mana
gers in Congress have concltded to
drolp it. There is a vast amount of
en Nortlhern capital invested in South
hat ern enterprises, and the owuets. of
'ie this capital are opposed to any leg.
ov- islation by Congress which would re
vive sectional bitterness and disturb
lhusiness and industry. Aside from
this the Republican managers realize
es. that the scheme to reduce the South's
tes representation is one that may cut in
a" some u nexpected directions, and that
the legal obstacles in its way are
'he the New York Journal remarks
es; that the more reckless Republican
organs insist that it is unnecessary
to pay any attention to the census.
"T'hey assert," says the Journal,
ent "that Congress can adopt such
ich methods of estimating the extent of
irk di-franchisment as it may choose."
Of course from this it would be an
so easy step to abandoning any p)re
as. tense of ap)portioning represenatives
ich by any fixed rule, and making the
,g. numbler depend entirely upon the
arbitrary decree of the Congressional
majority. Congress might say that
New York, ibeing uncertain politi
the cally, should have only twenty repre
ley sentatives, and that Pennsylvania
Ie, being trustworth. should have forty.
Tix I'he only safegard against such an
outcome as this is to clieg to the con
,he stitutional method of apportioning
me seats by the census.
he Besidcs, the Republicans have he
gun to realize that it is not "raiqhow
chasing" to look for votes for them
selves in the South. In two suc
ek cessive presidential elections they
ad have carried Maryland, I)elaware
ith and West Virg uia ; they carried Ken
tucky four years ago, and came witih
in an ace of carrying it this time.
he They have chances in Tennessee, and
as possililities in Missouri. All this
on would be thrown away by raising the
sectional issue, and therefore there
is every reason to believe that the
issue will not be raised.
THE POSITION OF COTTON.
de The Picaqune of Monday last has
It the following to say on Mr. Neill's
ne late guess on the cotton crop:
he The publication, a few days ago,
of what must lie considered Mr. H.
Neill's official cotton crop estimate,
has served to draw attention anew to
c the situation prevailing in cotton.
as According to M.r. Neill, the crop will
b. e between 9,500,000 and 9,750,000
he bales; but Mr. Neill says very frank
ly that '"this frost (referring to the
id cold snap of Nov. 8 nod 9), in my
ig opinion, makes my outaide figure of
g 9 3-4 quite unattainable." The im
t. pression accordingly prevails that he
leans towards his inside estimate,
naminely, 9,500,000 bales.
t, Mr. Neill's views harmonize favor
Ii ably with the opinions current among
at the cotton producers throughout the
t South, and not unnaturally the crop
prophet's repurtation. has risen in
le their estimation. On the other
ts hand, the foreign spinners who
1 pinned such implicit faith to MIr.
e Neill's predictions last year, are now
unwilling to accept his views, be.
e cause they fail to agree with their
opinions. Accordingly, they are dlis
posedl to wait until the United States
l)epartment of Agriculture in its De- .
cember report conlirms or discredits a
SMr. Neill's predictions. c
The situation as for as the great
Scrop prophet is concerned, presents a
a rather amusing contrast with that I
which prevailed last year. Then tihe a
Sprodutcers were loud in their protests a
d because his views failed to agree with
e theirs, while, on the other hand, the
foreign spinners were unswerving in
Stheir confidence in Mr. Neill, display- l
uing the faith that was in them by o
keeping out of the market, and, con
sequently, paying many millions of
Spounds sterling more for their cotton
than they probably would had they
Sbought sooner. T'he strangest change "
t which time has brought about is the ti
Senhanced reputation of the Agricul
tural Bureau. Formerly Neill was
awaited in order to confirm the bu- tl
reau; now the bureau is awaited to
Sconfirm Neill. It is a very interest
Sing phase of human nature.
That Mr, Neill made aserious mis- tl
take in his calculations last year he ti
himself admits, for he says, in his re- a
cent circular: "I have felt that I
owed it to those who were misled Iy t
my error last year that my investiga. uj
tion of this crop should be more th
thorough than ever before." This
.very error, however, has induced
him, as he himself states, to make
unusual efforts to avoid being misled be
this year. Infallibility never has an
been claimed by crop estimators, and a
certainly not by Mr. Neill; hut the
fact remains that the last namned
gentleman has been very fortunate ne
during a long series of years in pre- til
dicting at a very early date in the to
season the approximate yield. It is, bn
therefore, more logical to expect
that he will be remarkably near the La
correct total this year, particularly en
when common prudence would d(lie.
tate unusual exertions on his part,
than to expect that he will again be A
greatly in error. It should also be
remembered that last year trade sen
timent on this side of the Atlantic
was unanimously against him, where- -
as this year the trade sentiment as
well as the actual statistics corrobo
rate his views.
Here, then, we have a reasonablle
prospect of an American crop not Ti
much, if any, above 9,600,000 bales,
withtb a probable consumption of f
American estimated by Mr. Elliao., b'
the great English authority, first at
10,380,000. and still more recently
at 10,000,000 bales. With tlse
fiuires of prospective umpply ad-id
driemanld before us, it is not di~flqiuL
to foresee that the supply of cotton
Sarried over at the end of the season
es- will be alarmingly small. Mr. Elli

the Neill's long promised circular, which
ates materialized yesterday through the
ye:° New Orleans papers, furnishes no
pre- startling statements. [t is simply con
ates firmatory of the already settled ac
Sceptance of less than a ten million
