This representation has not Only been traditional but it has i been in accordance with the standing i of the two counties in relation to the other counties of the state. N contrary Vermillion county alone for More than thirty years has had no . The population of the three counties according to the last a Federal census was i Fountain. \ Vermillion ls., it is True that legislative Are not made on a basis of the Federal census it does not stand to reason that Vermillion county should have e Ual representation with both i Arke and Fountain. One is warranted in challenging any state enumeration which at this time shows a population that would justify the disfranchisement of either Parke or Fountain. Especially will such an enumeration be viewed with suspicion when taken together with the obvious intention of this new apportionment. We believe that the purpose is the deliberate disfranchisement of an anti brewery population that it is made so that Clinton with its numerous saloons can be relied on to Send either a brewery Republican or a brewery Democrat to the legislature. This if the plan is carried out according to the brewery machine will give Terre haute and Clinton the naming of four representatives.
