Following tho decision by Supreme
Court Justice Anient! that tho court liaa
jurisdiction to hear tho proceedings
brought to set aside tho apportionment
of tho State Into Senate and Assembly
district in 1007, the answer to tho com
plaint that tho apportionment was uncon
stitutional was filed In the Hupromo Court
yesterday. I ho answer was put in by
Eloti It, Hrown, who was designated as
special deputy Attorney-General to de
fend tho proceedings, and by Winthrop
fc Stlmson, who wero rotalned by George
H. Cobb, President protem. of tho Senate,
and Speaker Watlsworth of tho Assembly.
The answer allogea first, that tho pcti
tionern wero guilty of laches In permitting
three yean" to elapse heforo they ob
jected to tho apportionment, and also
i because they did not act heforo the recent
election. I he name alleged defects were
in tho apportionment of 1000, but no one
objected to that.
Affidavits aro also attached to the
answer from all persons who had any
thing to tlo with tho redisricting of thu
Stato Into tho districts which ore alleged
to havo been formed In violation of the
law. Thomas W. Whittle, former secre
tary of tho Republican County Committee
of New York county, admits that thero
is a larger population in somo districts
in this county than In others, but says
that whatever errors of such naturo were
made aro duo to oversights and unavoida
ble mistakes fn computing the population
of tho districts. Ho insists that the
errors wero duo to honest mistaken and
that there was no attempt to violate tho
John A. Smith, secretary of the county
committee of Kings county, who had
I charge of tho apportionment there, says
1 ho is ut a loss to understand how the
variation in tho population of some of
tho Kings districts camo about. Tho
general plan, he said, was to lay nut the
districts with respect to the transporta
tion lines through them, so that It would
be easy to get from ono part of a district
to tho other. It was only on incident of
tho apportionment that certain races con
stitute tho hulk of tho voters in some of
j tho districts.
As to Westchester county, which claims
I to have enough imputation to cntitlo it to
two Senate districts, the answer says
j that while the countv may have a sur
plus over the ratio for ono district the
population sn t large enough for two dis
Senator William J Tully. chairman
of the Senate Committee on Apportion
ment, explained that Tioga, Chemung,
Schuyler and Tompkins counties, which
form one of the Impeached districts, were
apportioned in that manner with respect
to the lines of communication between
them, and the same is declared to be true
jof Seneca. Cavuga and Cortland counties.
! Kdwin A Merritt. Jr., chairman of the
, Assembly district Committee on Appor
tionment, said that considerations of
I population were generally laid aside
for the convenience of the communities
as to railwav communication
