congressional and legislative purposes Jf the Democrats are successful Voorhees will be his owq successor and the preseutapportiontmont bill wiil be reenacted while if the Re publicans should control a new nppor tionmont would be certain to follow These are the real issues and otj this line both parties are junking a desperate fljrht The Legislative Position The legislature consists of TOO members of the house elected every two years and of fifty sanatory elected every four year onehalf of the latter cliosen at each election and one half holdingover two years There would ordinarily be twentyfive senators to elect for each ses sion but a vacancy having occurred since the last general assembly there will be twentysix senators to be elected and twentyfour to hold over Of the latter
