Tills bill doc3 not seem to us unob
Jocllonablc, whllothoobjectitls design-
cd to promote is highly morltorlous.
In tho first placo it lias tho appcaranco
of " a Job." and, thorcforo, should havo
received tho closest scrutiny beforo Its
passago. An attompt was mado In tho
IIouso, bowover, to pass it by its title,
without pormltting it to bo read, and
oven tho "cag-law," known as tho
previous guettlon, was attempted so as to
cut off dobato and amendments.
Tho appropriation of $70,000 Is large,
especially as tho wholo subject is an ox
perlment, Again, tho scono of tho bill
Is entirely local. It doc3 not aim to
renovato thofishories of thoonllro Stato,
but only certain portions of tho Susquo
hanna. Tho bill providos for tho alter
ation of four dams on tbo Juniata, and
three on tbo West Branch, but does not
proposo to touch ono on tho North
Branch, although a larger and moro
important stream than both combined.
Wo shall await tho result of tho ac
tion proposed by thl3 bill carefully, and
hopo it may provo a success, and that
cheap fish, as In days of old, may bo
brought to our doors. No food is moro
beulthy, and It can bo mado inexpen
sive to tho masses.
'flip Congressional Aiioi'llminicnt.
At tho closo of tho sesslou a bill was
greed upon by tho Legislature, giving
tho DomocraU ten, and thollopubllcans
sixteen districts. Among thoso ton is
counted Luzerne, which is really doubt
ful, ond which Is oven now reprosentm
by n Republican. Tho bill U so notori
ously upjust tbat tho Democrats woro
tempted to defeat it, as they held tho
balance of power hi tho Senate; but
wero restrained by tho fact that wo
would bo left under tho act of 1802
which was oven worse, and would prob
ably havo given us only six out of the
twenty-six members. Of the two evils
wo had to chooso tho less.
iVsa matter of JU9tico tho delegation
should bo ovenly divided, becauso tho
llcpublican mnjorlty docs not cntltlo
them to anything more; but tho most
they should have asked, was fourteen
to our twelve.
To bIiow the unfalrnessof tho present
apportionment wo need only say that
lu tho Governor's voto of lSG'J, when a
full voto was cast, wo polled 285,95(1
votes, and tho opposition only 290,052,
Taking that as a basis, It will bo seen
that 23,090 Democratic voters got only
ono member oi congress, wnno io,ii
Republicans havo equal representation
Again, ns n gerrymander it has no
parallel. Neither tho sympathlesof tho
peoplo composing tho various counties
nor contiguity of territory wero consld
ered, as will ho seen by tho list of dls
trlcts published clsowhere.
Another cravo defect is tliodlspro
portion of population. Luzemo county
constitutes ono district with 1G0.750 in
habitants, whllo tho Tioga district hai
Columbia county is onco again in
Democratic district, being connected
with Schuylkill and Montour counties,
There was an excess without Montour
but sho was added to savo her bolng
swallowed up. The excess in tho Dis
trict is 25,085. Wo aro at least thankful
that wo aro no longer under tho heel of
Bradford, and promiso to give to our
nominee a rousing majority this fall.
