The rníio of represeptotion is iixedat 5,200, but an additional member s allnwed lo e'very fraction over half that numbor. We shonld like to hnvc the flouse ncreased to 100, and the Scnnte'to 33. The Stote would be bett'ïr governed: thero would be less chance for eorruption, nnd the Legislature would embrace a greater nmount of talent and moral worth. TI)O expense, by reducii.g t Ihe pay of memhers to the New England r standard, nnd tak ing away the Ten ( sand news papers and other unnecessarv fixings whh whieh ihey now furnish elves nt tho public cl;arge, would be no greater than il now is.
