This expression may surprise some people who have thomght all along that our representation had been based population. That Tiew is right, though it needs some explanation in order to clear up the impression that might come from the Free Press' statement A long time has passed Canada won what was commonly as "rep by pop.'' At the time of Confederation, Quebec was allotted 65 members in perpetuity, and Its of representation becomes the basis for the balance of the Dominion. In the census of 1911 Quebec's popu-. Jetton was By dividing 65 tato that figure the basis of population was obtained at The re-dis- tribution of parliamentary seats, to, lowing the census of 1911, was o coarse based on this figure, bu. there were many seats with popnla don considerably under this figure and at the same time there were A considerable number of seats, especl ally in the cities, where the represen tation was placed at a much higher figure. Utentlon was more closely paid to tho size of the constituencies than to the population. Even in Que- oec province redistribution did not 'follow the figure very closely. In order to fceep in existence some of the English speaking counties of that province, seats were allowed to exist with a population of as low ai as in the case of Bromc. To come to the meaning of the Free Press dispatch, it Is well to point out that the cities have been under represented on tho basis of popula- tion. There was; a very sound reason for this course. Had the basis been absolutely adhered to, Toronto city would probably have had three or more members than it has at the present time. That would have meant that the city of Toronto would have had probably ten menders while is concerned, compared with what it riafany more than two members for _JJt .__ territory, 6ut it understood that a vast territory like that we speak of is more difficult to it iMm a compact city like Toronto. There is, coweqwaitly, a very strong argument favor of not adhering closely to the basis of popu- lation but to -territory covered, and the conditions: altering when ukina- a of seats. It would not surprising in the torthcomlaf redistribution tt the gov- ernment in power attempted to more adhero to the basis of popu- lation. In so doiac they would give to the cities increased representation and reduce the rural representation in some parts of Canada to a consider- able extent The elect of such a policy woald oe more' noticeable in eastern Canada than in the west. The western cities, at present, have about their full quota of representation, and any Increased representation that to the West, following the 1921 census, cannot help adding to the Bomber of rural There would be an ulterior purpose of conrae In the move on the part of the Govern- ment to Increase the vbau ramraaen- Uttoa. The Government ia not antici- pating vary strong support from the rural sections ot the country, bnt It does hope that its 'protection policy' will obtain the support ot the cities. If it can increase the urban represen- tation when making a redistribution after the census, It will ot course im- prore its chancee when a general election takes place. This ..is, therefore, the reason for the Winnipeg Free Press' declaration that the "Government may base re- distribution after census on a basis ot population." deals with and with wTist has been effected through it, the Board of TraSe is one -of tha most cheaply run organizations in the -city.

The prevailing mood of Labor is indefinite; a condition of stasis has been caused by the coal strike and the dread of unemployment. Every- one seems confused and to be awalt- ag events to determine future policy. There Is a distinct reaction against extremism in all its forms, clue to a sown by facts, in the efficacy of the remedies of the various doc- trinaire schools. This. however, should not be interpreted as a move- ment towards a belief in the prescrip- tion of Increased production which hns obtained at least the greatest publicity. The cardinal Tact for tho average worker is that he seems to tie in danger of becoming unemploy- ed, that he desires to continue to work, and.that according to the ex- pert view maximum production is tlie prime -necessity.
