In what ha b-en Mcomplithed aince tbe Kiver Inter state movement wa Initiated there l much encouragement there ha been tangible proof of what can be done. But, and thi is tbe key note of the pretent meeting, there xaust be no re laxation of labor, what has been effect ad ibould but incite to increased and more comprehensive euergy of action. One thing ha not been done ; and thia li that there it no encouragement to assume that ex-PrcsiJcut Cleveland bai been Impressed with the merit and Infinite good to the producing claws.-, of a true system of natioual waterways improvement. Tbia fact is referred to because of the prominence of thi dis tinguished Statesman as the probable nominee iu 1892 of oue of tbe two national partie for the Presidency and of the reasonable assumption that be voices tbe seutiment of a Urge if not dominant element of tbe Kasteru business classes. In his recent speech at Buflalo Mr. Cleveland most uu fairly and uutruly classed tbe river Improvement service, with the many budget of extravagant aud waete ful government expenditures. Il aald in that speech, "not many years ago the River and Harbor Bill ap propriatiug $11,000,000 gave rise to loud popular protest Now public ex travagance command an appropria Hon of $22,000,000 for the amo pur. pose and tbe people are silent." It is lingular that a statesman of Mr. Cieve. land clear and careful thought, hi Ordinarily true aud broad perceptions should thus class and mingle tbe river and harbor expenditure with the pen ion, tubsidy aud other kinds of mis appropriations of the public funds. The itinu for improvement of naviga tion, from the incipieucy of a work to It close, are invested with afeguard gainst corrupt or misdirected expen ditures, as no other appropriations arc. River Improvements are only under taken after tbe mott thorough exami nation of their feasibility and servicea bility by the cuginecr corps, the high est das of all govcrnmeut employees. Members of this corp direct and con trol the cost of these works. There Is not, we believe, an Instance on record of abuse or failure in this responsibili ty by the government engineers com posed of tbe honor graduates of West Point. More directly thnn any other da of government outlay waterways Improvement enter into aud serves the economic of the producing classes and the necessities of commerce. We repeat, that it is singular and most re grettable that Mr. Clovelaud should remain oblivious to these truths of tbia tubjoct the promotion of which natioual glory aud public good de mand on au even larger scale, than that be condemn. Ilia position seem ingly fixed aud immutable, convoy an Idea of the great opposition yet to be conn te red. The Inter-Stale Association is nou- polltlcal, but it desires and expects to to impress the public through the common business aud industrial Inter-1 est of the country, that both parties will adopt a true and liberal measure and system of waterways improve ment. Sanctioned by the constitution, there 1 nothing in a declaration to 'this effect, In conflict with the past record and platform of cither Ilcpub licanlsm or Democracy.

The report of the committee had simply to bo read by tbo chuirinau, that national crank, Ignatius Donnelly, the first man that ever proposed negro suffrage iu tho Americnu Congress, to bo adoptod unanimously aud cutbtisl astically.

Geor gia's Livingston' simple suggestion that a 3rd party be deferred to '92 was savagely and unautmoiisly thrown out. So was the motion to commit tho Peo- plc'sParty to prohibition about which these very Northwestern people were wild two year only since.

Tho resolutions condemn the exlrava- gauce of the Fifty-first Congress, de mand economy iu public expenditure, pronounce for a tariff for revenue ouly j favor the increase of tbe cur rency by the uso of gold ond silver aud legal tender treasury notes to au amount sufficient to make at least $10 per capita; duiioiinco subsidies and bounties and all class legislation do- mnud tho supproRainti of trusts and combines, favor the electlou of United States Senators by the people, pro nounce In favor of a graduated income tax, arraign the Republican party and congratulate the Democratic party; oppose tho Sub-Treasury scheme as unconstitutional, impractical, undemo cratic and tending to centralization and paternalism; oppose secret political organizations, favor tho re-election of both Seuators George and Walthall to tho United Stales Semite, aud invito back to the Democratic party nil the wapward brethrr-iit .Mr. Allen supported the report in a short but pointed speech, and tho res olutions wcro unanimously adopted. There were many Alliauce men in tbo Convention, and not ono of them voted aKoiust any of the resolutions. Leo county will continue solidly Demo cratic. Tho Leo county resolutions arc good enough for the farmers aud all others of Mississippi. Tho Timks hopes that John Alluu will bring a copy to Jack, son July lflth and present thorn to tho convention of Democrats which will assemblo on that day with an addi tional plank such as tbo Delta section Is eutltled to on river improvement. could but load to discord aud con fusion. In Illustration I will refer to the fact that iu tuauy, porhaps most, of the counties conventions arc now being called for nomination of Railroad Com missioners. Under the theory com bated theso conventions could validly surprlso tho people by nominating county otlicors. Such transgression, it is readily perceived, would bo resented as a usurpation. I desiro on this occasion to particularly nolo tho omission of any Mississippi Slnto convention to pre scribo and dellno tho organic power nud duties, tho manner ol constituting, and imnii tbo term of, Stalo or County Executive Cominittocs. 1 ro- fur to the omission for tho purposo of attracting thought and attention to tho matter and of expressing tho belief that this should bo douo. Were these fundamental facts and powers reduced to a rcasouablo and uniform rulo, the frequency and liability of the parly to divide aud becomo discordant would bo much lossoued. In almost every luslntico strife, and faction grows out of or is fed upou some parllsau or mistaken exorcise of aulliorlty by ibe Executive Committees. Or some In novation, Just aud reasonable iu itself, 1 seized upou by tbo disappointed or factious as a pretext to personal ends or denials of party control. The matter of parly Integrity is a serious cousidcratiou iu Mississippi, espec ially iu tbe black counties, where tho government is really dispensed through tbo parly. There are coun ties where social relations have through party contentions been disturbed for years. Such evils would well nigh iu variably be avoided through the oper ation of a consistent unvarying rule. 1 bollcvo that such a codo of party practice might be devised as would be of great good to tho State, nud yet leave ainplo freedom of performance in simple matter of detail and con venience, in tho particular niauucr of ascertainment of tbe peoples choice and will. Causes lor chaugo In the method of procedure of committees lu the function referred to will arise according to localities, aud demand the necessary latitude of actiou. But nil changes or departure from prece dent ami rule by tho Exccutivo Com mittees, should bo accompanied by a full aud fairly convincing statement of reason therolor. Respectfully, J. 8.
