afternoon said to your correspondent The triokof gerrymandering a State is quickly practiced by each party when it obtains power It is a slri against representative government to permit tho

communities long allied In representation are suddenly torn apart neighborhoods aro separated com munities remote from each other are sud donly xinitod in representation In territory districts aro formed likestars and shoe strings My bill provides that Congressional districts shall havo as nearly as practicable an equal number of inhabitants The most populous districts in any State aro not to havo inhabitants in excess of tho population of tho lowest district As to territory tho district must be contiguous adjacent and compact To prevent biennial rcdistricting as has been practice during this decade my bill pro vides that in each State under each decen nial census of tho population there shall be one apportionment of Representatives by Congress and ono thereunder by each State and that tho Legislature in each State elected next after the appor tionment by Congress under a now census shall rcdlstricb each State into districts equal in population and compact in terri tory and that no Legislature in a State shall have power to alter tho same under any other census The result of tho present census will be ascertained in time to enable the States to rodlstrlct for the Fiftythird Congress Just as tho Fortythird Congress was elected under a now apportionment and the Forty second was hold under an old apportion ment so now the Fiftythird will be tho firstCongress which can be redistrictod pursuant to tho eleventh census and the apportionment laAV by Congress My bill tho principle of which is that districts shall not bo disturbed for ten years after being marked out under tlio new cen sus justly provides that until the next ap portionment of Representatives shall be made by Congress conformably to tho eleventh census there shall bo no change of boundaries in Congressional districts in any State but that tho Representatives of the Fiftysecond Congress shall beelected from tho districts as they wero in the Fiftyfirst Congress rendering nuigatory any effort to the people only ninety days be fore the eleventh Mr McComas thpn entered Into a full ex pi aviation of tho details of b 5s out its fairness and its antipartisan character
