The appor tionment of representatives iu con gress, based on the census of 1900, is one representative for each 194,1S2 inhabitants, the number of males of voting age varying largely iu the dis tricts, but a general average in the United States is one male of voting age for each 3.0 inhabitants, or 53,- of voting acre in each dis- age were not heard from'm that eTeff, tion: -v: ,--. i: . . Mississippi, with 349.177 males of voting age, cast but 18,05S' votes for representative . to congress in- 1902, or about 5 ier cent of males' of vot ing 'age. ' The average vote per district in all the northern states"' was over 35,000 and the average vote in all the south ern states was 10,400. The average vote in "West Virginia was 37,715, but it will be noted that West Vir ginia elected all Kepublican repre sentatives. Indiana and Louisiana. The average vote per congressman in Indiana was more than the total vote east for the fifteen congressmen in Louisiana and Mississippi, t 'Louisiana has 7 'congressmen, Flor id has 3, Mississippi has 8, South Carolina has 7, yet neither of these states cast a total vote as large as the lowest vote cast in any one dis trict in Indiana. If the average vote per congress man in Mississippi applied to Indi ana, there would be 259 'representa tives from this state instead of 13. With--Mississippi's average, Kan sas would have 124 representatives instead of 8, and Colorado would have 82 representatives instead of 3. With the exception of'the''3d and 12th districts, any one of the dis tricts of Indiana had a larger vote than the seven districts of Arkan sas, the three districts of Florida, 939 males trict. A small per cent of these are not the seven districts of Louisiana, the naturalized and some are disfran- seven districts of South Carolina, chiscd for various reasons.

In the seven states above mention ed were 1,051,202 males of voting age who were . of negro' descent and in the total number (white and color ed) were '731,571 illiterates. "'- ! It is a well known fact thai there are many illiterates among the whit es in - these seven states, but, assum ing tliat the illiterates were all among the colored people, there still remains 319,091 negroes who would be entitled to a vote even if an edu cational jualification were applied, or 55,342 more than the total vote east in these states. The Maryland Platform. The. existing condition is plainly set forth in the platform by the Democratic state convention of Maryland in 1903, viz.: "We believe that the political des tinies of Maryland should be shaped and controlled by the white people of the state, and whilo we disclaim any purpose to do any injustice what ever to our colored population, we declare without reserve our resolu te purpose to preserve in every con servative and constitutional way the political ascendency of our race." The" solution of the difficulty is strongly -set forth in the platform adopted by the Republican conven tion in Ohio in 1903, viz.: "We bold fast to the doctrine of equity -everywhere in the exercise of the elective franchise, maintaining that justice- requires any state ex cluding any of its citizens from the ballot tobc proportionately reduced in its representation in the electoral college and the lower house of the national congress." n n i i i i i i i , i i v Club Meetings Today.'
