-Sr. LOUIS' VIEWS ON THE CONVENTION.
From the Globe-Democrat.
In 1896 for the second time in ita his
tory the republican party is to hold a
national convention in a southern state.
Missouri, of coarse, is really a northern
or western, and not a southern state,
bat in a social ami partisan sense it
was a slave st:ti:-, atid it has been demo
cratic for many years, like the other
states in which shivery existed it has
been classed with the South. It will do
no harm to defer to that notion in this
instance. All ths republican national
conventions along to this time except
that of 164, which met in Baltimore,
were held in the North. The first
national convention of the parly, that
of 1856, met in Philadelphia, as also did
that of 1872; those of 1860, 1808, 1880,
18S4 and 1885 were held in Chicago, that
of 1876 met in Cincinnati, and that of
1892 took place in Minneapolis.
Bat the selection of a southern state
for a meeting-place for a republican
national convention means more now
than it did in 1864. The convention of
1864 held in Baltimore was called a
union convention, and not strictly a re
publican convention. The call was ad
dressed to those who "desire the uncon
ditional maintenance of the union, the
supremacy of the constitution, and the
complete eupression of the existing re
beiiion," and the first resolution of the
platform declared that "laying aside all
differences of political opinion, we pledge
ourselves as Union men, animated by a
common sentiment, and aiming at a
common object, to do everything in our
power to aid the government," etc. The
object of holding the convention in Bal
timore was to strengthen the Union
cause in the border states, tiien an ob
ject of great interest to the government.
Many war democrats took part in the
convention, and were expected to vote
for the ticket, which had a war demo
crat on it for the second office, although
of course, most of those in the conven
tion and who supported the ticket were
The selection of St. Louis as the meeting-place
of the convention of 1896 has a
profound and lasting significance. It is
a recognition of the fact made plain by
the recent elections that the geograph
ical line erected by Texas annexation
aud made hard and fast by the Kansas
conflict, has at last dropped out of poli
tics. The republican party, forced oy
the issue which brought it into being
and by the convulsion which that iesne
caused, to be a sectional organization for
nearly forty yeare, has now broadened
and developed into national proportions.
All the votes received by the first re
publican speaker and all the ballote
cast in the Electoral College for the first
republican president were from the free
states, and, practically speaking, from
the same region has come all the strength
of the republican party ever since until
1894 and 1895, except in the temporary
and artificial conditions of the recon
struction period. But now Mason and
Dixon's line- and the parallel of 36-30
have ceased to be political boundaries
and have become mere geographical des
ignations. The solid South has been
abolished. Freed from the obstructions
by which its growth was restricted,
the republican party has crossed into a
new field, and has started out on larger
and grander conquests than it has yet,
Politics are- booming in the Willam
ette valley. Already a half a dozen cai-
didates are being mentioned to succeed j
Mr. Hermann in the first district. The
"list includes H. B. Miller and W. T.
Vawter of Southern. Oregon, Thomas B.
Tongue of Washington county, C. B.
Moores and T. T. Geer of Marion county.
There are others who are lingering in
the background waiting for some op
portunity to call them forth. The sec
ond district will not bo behind the first
in the number of aspirants, and the two
districts are similar in the farther re
spect that all the activity is confined to

Tbe Frlxe Babies.
The baby show Saturday afternoon at
tracted a large crowd of spectators. The
babies were numbered, and as the jndges
were comparative strangers their names
were not known to those who awarded
the prizes. The little tots all looked
sweet and it was no easy task to decide
which was the prettiest. After much
deliberation, the committee came to a
C3nclus:on, and the results showed the
following to be mothers of prizs winners :
Mrs. J. A. Douthit, Mrs. R. E. Haworth,
Mrs. J. M. Gallagher and Mrs. G. J.
Ross. The twins of Mrs. Smart also
awarded a prize.
The popularity of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and the high esteem in
which it is helds leads us to believe it to
be an article of great worth and merit.
We have the pleasure of giving the ex
perience of three prominent citizens of
Redondo Beach, Cal., in the use of tbe
remedy. Mr. A. V. Trudel! says: "I
have always received prompt relief when
I used Chamberlain's Cough Remedy."
Mr. James Orchard eaye: "I am satis
fied that Chamberlain's Cough remedy
cured my cold."' Mr. J. M. Hatcher
says: "For three years I have used
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in my
family and its results have always been
satisfactory." For sale by Blakeley &
