And a bill was Introduced providing for the readjustment. The legislative lower house turned it down 90 to 57--all the urbanites voting with the 57; all the-ruralites with the 90. As State Representative Sparks of the rural .90, remarked, "Right or wrong, down-state never will surrender control of the legislature to Chicago." If the farmers feel this way about their legislatures, how will they feel about surrendering control o£ their congressional majority? A S TO the congressional situation, the cities, taken altogeth- I er, actually stand to lose representation. They will not even hold on to all they have now. New"York City, for instance, la comparatively fortunate. At least it will not lose. St. Louis and Kansas, City are quite likely to. New York state gains a couple of representatives. On a population basis New York City, because of Its rapid growth, ought to get them, but it is doubtful if the Albany legislature will redlstrict for them. K not, they will have to be elected at large--by the entire state--ana per- 1 hapg they will be ruralites, some of them, anyway. ' 1 On the other hand, Missouri loses four or five congressional seats. Byl good rights, however, they ought not to come out of St. Louis or Kan-1 sas City. They have kept up witti population's growth and are en-1 titled to as many congressmen as ever they had. Yet suppose the ' legislature refuses to redistrict Missouri! Why, in that event, inasmuch as the , state actually has I LOST representation, ALL. its congressmen will have to be elected at large. St. Louis and Kansas City may not get ANY of them. sunoui.
