Toe question ot the representaiMon ot the Southern states In the nest national RepuWttaan convention Is Dkely to be- come of interest. It will be remembered Ch-Jit the national convention of 1892, at MlnneUpotls, adbpbed a resolution recom mending We naitional commutes to so alter the basis of representation that the atates which give Republican majorities shun Wave la corresponding representation In the ton vend cm; that Is, that the states which must be relied upon to elect a Republican president shall have some thing to say about Mis nomination of the candidate. This resolution was adopted because of the t act that President HaTrison could not have been nominated at Minneapolis had tt not' been for the support of (the delegates from Hhe Southern states, not one of iwhotn gave him an electoral vote, In that convenUon there were 606 votes; necessary ito a choice, VS. Harrison re ceived the following votes from Southern Democratic) sta'tes: Altilbama, IS; Arloan as, 15; Floridi, 8; Georgia, 26; Kentucky, 22; Louisiana, 8; Maryland, 14; lilsaiselp. pi, 13 1-3; 'Missouri, 28; North Carolina, 17 2-3; 'Boutin Carolina 13; Tennessee, 17) Texas, 22; Virginia, I; and West Virginia, 12; .total, 210 1-4. Harrison's majority over all, w.is 168. The national convntRtoe will not meet until next February, but ' the matter Is beginning to receive attention because Senator Elklns, of WMt "Vlirginla, who Is a condldute for the nomination for vice preeld.wt, proposes to light the proposi tion for a change. He calls himself a "Southern man," and la going to run his campaign, on that basis. iHence he does not (want .tha power of' the Southern states lu the convention abridged or cur taKed.' Whether he will succeod In his purpose 'to prevent a chlangs remains to be seen. The stlvar question fold fair to split the Democratic party .wide open. The an nouncement of Chairman Harrlty thai no meeting of the Democratic national committee win be culled this summer to consider One silver question or the hold ing of a silver convention His already Inaugurated a movement 4n behalf of a "volunteer" convention, and the men who engineered the I'.Mrtole gathering are at work preparing for a national meeting. Secretary HlnrlchSrn, of tlhe Illinois commM-tee, is In oammunlcaulnn with sil ver men and officers of the stile commit tees) to .the West nd South generally, and ,1s urging them to take concerted ' notion in 'the. mlatlter. Thle friends of President Cleveland ait Washington shake their healds despondently, and uy frank ly (that they do ndt see 4vow 'toa tidal wuve to to, be checked or how ths pirty can' stand tiny, show of suooees next year It tthw agltblKon keep up. A few ot the more angudne hope that Improved busi ness condition may turn the attention ot the public to other ma)Uters, but the sliver 1 ciders evidently do no)t Imt,;nd thai the nllver Question shall take any place In .Uw background. There Is every reason to beCHevs that a noitlonlal galfhettng ot Democrats wl be called to conislder this question, and that tt will be attended by delegates from prohuUy three-fourth ot tithe stulte, perhaps from aCI. Mean, time, the Republicans are making the moot of It, They are pushing for advan trge lu the close states. They bellev that they wW stand a show In Keu tucky If tons silver lsune keeps to the flronit ad it has Idons to I3ils.it I me. This Is the exptoiwitlon of the eamsWtfiess In the reoenit convention of the party In that i;ate. The free sllveplt leaders count on th Ignorance of their foliowars to keep the ki'tosr from seeing the cheat It Is pro posed to pass toff on theim md Uhe rest of tha people, which would benefit them no more Uhlan the adUCng of water to milk wtould Inomiee 'e quality of the latter.

That lis Ohelr argument, and it U all thtro Is to the movement oua'ldi of a ironomlwd desire to make a tati persons rich at he expense of the r.

Are the people so blind thut largj nu nbers of them will continue to be deluded by the supposition that the wuges of tlhe toilers would be Improved and their condMon made bcitter by paying them with a larger number of Coins, the buy ing power of each of which coins was correspondingly decreased.

This being the whole of their possible gain, while tt Is certain they could not get even that until after they Wad paeed through, year of terrible commercial derireefrton and Industrial par alysis, why ehoirld they want to upset existing conditions, destroying half the purchasing power of twto-thirds of the money in the United States and driving out the rest? Surely they ought to have discernment enough to perceive that the pleading of such a catastrophe, as a sup posed means of producing greater abun dance of cheap money In the long future can only be made by a lot of played out poWUclans of both parties, who have been repudiated by their constituents, or a set of arranlt rogues who wish to wax fat on the miseries of the people. There is a clergyman In Philadelphia so popular that hU congregation has out grown even the large church, where r.e preaches, and he has consequently adopt ed the device of connecting three halls by telephone, bo that three congregations can hear him at once. This is another Illustration of the fact iwhldh some of the ministerial brethren do not seem to recognlze-'thait people wiU go to church when they get good preaching. The Astorian Is gCad to note the signs of .prosperity shown by our neighbor, the Pacific Journal, of Ilwaco, Wash, Not content, merely, with giving its readers two papers a week, Instead of one, as formerly, it (hia mow enlarged its tise to a 7-ccflirmn folio. The Journal is a bright, newsy and clean paper, and Is well worthy of the appreciation and sup port tt Is evidently receiving (from the good people of Il waco, During the eleven months ended wltlh May our exports decreased olbouit I74,0df 000, and by a significant coincidence, our Importia Increased in that time about the same amount. The average citizen can readily see that the the effect of the new tariff tow is flavorabie to more buying than selling, or, In other words, to h advantage of foreign countries ftt the expense of the United tSutes. It now bfgbns to look as If tlhe free silver l;tiue will be worn out before the nxt oampatlgn by the premature activ ity of .Ohe MtmdB of tho white metal, thus leaving the country free to consider other and more tonportlant questions.

The following 'js taken from a recent letter written by Mr. IWhitetaw Held describing the thrilling experience of him self and Jirj. Riid' in a sand storm on the Saham: "The flnst gust ewiept the .tenlt from Its fastenings and spread tthie auftbeatind canvas over the rflepnemL Then it was swept away into the night, leaving them all at the trtercy of the 'blinding, choking cloud ot sand. The minute particles cut Into their flesh, got into their eyes and mouths 'and burjed them In its drifts. It fluni.d down their backs; filled their shoes and every fold in their clothes. The force of the bloat blew the particles even through the chinks in their trunks and when the bags and boxes were opened later they were found to be full of sand. The almost Imperceptible particles were anvei.i between the leaves ot tne books In these bags and boxes. The storm lusted seven hours. . "At (the outbreak ' of the storm the camel drivers, who had seen such things before, plied the camel saddles about Mr. and Mrs. Raid, and covered their heads with blankets. Then they built up a bul wark of trunks arAl lay prostrate while the suffocating beasts continued. The seven hours ot the storm were hours of ngony. Every one In the party was al most suffocated by the sand, and when it was -over they arose as if from the dead. The faces of all were cut and sore from the flying sand." HOW THEY NAMED TUB BABY. They talked or Medoru, Aurora and Flora, Of 'Mabel and MarcUa and Mildred and 'May; Debated One question of HeC'en, Honor, Clarissa, OamiICa, and FhjtHs a'.id Fiiy. They thought of Marcella,' Estella and BetHa; Considered CeceC, Jeam'tflte and Paul ine, Alicia, Adeia, Anetite, Ambelia, AUU Ethel antf Eunice, Hortense and Irene. One liked Theodora, anolther Leonora; Some argued for Edith, and some for Wialne, For Madeline, Adeline, Ltly and Lor a; And 'then, after all, they decided on June. Selected. A BIRD BONO.
