Virginia at One Time Had Greatest Number of Represen
tatives Some States Have Lost Congressmen in the
Past New York Now
ber, Rhode Island Smallest.
Washington, D. C.r Sept 20. One of
the first questions with which the ap
proaching session of congress will be
called upon to grapple will be to de
termine when the next apportionment
of members of the house of repre
sentatives under the recent census
shall be made.
The constiution requires that a re
apportionment shall follow- each de
cennial enumeration of the people, and
J accordingly a redistribution of seats
J in the house membership has taken
j place hitherto soon after the conclu-
sion of each census.
Up to 1890 the reapportionment was
uniformly postponed until the firs't
session of the congress succeeding the
enumeration, but after the 11th cen
sus a change was made and the appor
tionment bills for the 11th and 12th
census were brought in and passed
in each case during the short session
of the current congress immediately
following the census. It will rest with
the approaching session to determine
whether it shall follow the old or the
new precedent. Politics may deter
mine the choice.
Election Will Be Decided.
Before the time for the meeting of
congress the result of the November
election will have become known. If
the Democrats should come into con
trol of the house for the 63d congress
they would naturally resist any effort
to have the -change made by the pres
ent Republican congress, while the
Republicans Would be as anxious to
have the service performed while they
were in control of legislation in both
Apportionment in itself -can be used
for party advantage only through the
manipulation of population fractions
in the various states. If the present
day plan of fixing upon a definite
number of members as the first step
in the distribution is followed many
states will be found to have a con
siderable number of citizens over the
number necessary to give them the
number of members assigned them.
The size of the house once determined,
the representation of each state is
arrived at by dividing the aggregate
population of the country by the total
membership of the house and then di
viding the population of any given
state by the Quotient thus obtained.
Almost inevitably there ensues upon
each of such divisions a remainder,
'large or small. Aside from arbitrarily
fixing the representation on the vot
ing rather than the actual population,
this remainder, or fraction, affords
the only base of manipulation of the
apportionment of members.
If used to the extreme it might be
an important factor as no fewer than
23 representatives now hold
seats on fractions. That thev should
do so is strictly in accordance with
the law which provides that, any de
ficiency occurring on an even division
shall be supplied from the states hav
ing the largest remainders on the di
vision. This rule was strictly follow
ed in the last apportionment in all
allotments except those made to Maine
and Nebraska. In both those states
congress exercised somewhat arbitra
ry power by giving each a representa
tive on a fraction less than the frac
tions of other states which received
nothing because of their own frag
ments. This action was taken to pre
vent the loss of representation bv anv
House Leaders "Don't Want Increase
If that policy should be accepted
In the approaching apportionment it
could upset the plans of some of the
house leaders who are most anxious
to avoid any apprepiable increase in
the size of the house. The census ex
perts already understand that when
the figures are made public some of
the smaller eastern staes will be found
to have failed to keep pace in growth
with some of their larger neighbors
and with many of the western states.
If, therefore, they are to be protected
SECOND TO GERMANY
(Continued from previous page.)
Imately 200,000,000 is Invested in hos
pital property in tne United States,
most of this amount being represented
by the 600 institutions which constitute
the membership of the American Hos
First Hospital In Mexico.
The first hospital in the new world
was esatblished by Cortez In the City
of Mexico in 1524, a full hundred years
before any similar Institution was
founded in the United States. So firm-
ly were the foundations of this insti
tutlon laid that the endowment contin
ues to this day and the hospital Is still
in operation, presided over by a supe
rior wno receives his appointment
from a direct descendant of Cortez.
The funds through which the institution
was endowed were obtained from rev
enue given to Cortez by the Spanish
crown for his services in malting Mex
ico a par of the Spanish domain.
One of the newest movements in the
frospital world is the establishment of
the radium institute in New York. The
energies of this hospital will be de
voted to tne treatment and cure of can
cer. This institute i not a commercial
one, its membership being made up o
the leading surgeons of the country. It
proposes to produce radium In a New
York factory, and furnish it to phjsl
cians throughout the country. It is
probable that hospitals for the treat
ment of cancer will be established in
New York and Chicago in connection
with the work of the Institute. Ar-
rangements already have been made '
for the manufacture of the precious
material. As it costs approximately i
$2,700,000 a pound, it is safe to say 1
tnat not many pounds will be manufac
tured in any one year. Recent devel
opments in medical science point to
the fact that the radium cure will be

od of combating one of the most terri
ble diseases to which human flesh is

against loss of representation in the
house it will probably be necessary
to hold the ratio down to something
like the present basis or to discrimi
nate in favor of the smaller states.
Many Have Io.st Members.
A loss of membership would be by
no means anew experience to many of
the states. In the first apportionment,
made after the census of 1790, when
the house numbered, all told, only 105
members, Virginia was given 19, or al
most one-fifth of the entire member
ship, and in 1800 that number was in
creased to 23. Then there was a grad
ual faling away until 1870, when there
were only nine members from that
state. Since then there has been a
gain of one.
Barring the first apportionment, Con
necticut began with seven members
and now has five. Maryland has been
reduced from eight to six, and New
Hampshire from four to two; Vermont,
which in 1810 had six members, now
has two, while Maine -with eight in
1830 has been reduced to four. Mas
sachusets has the same number with
which she started in 1790. In 1800 the
number was increased to 17, but by the
next apportionment it had fallen to
13, and the original figure of 14 was
not regained until 1900.
After Virginia and Massachusetts,
Pennsylvania, with 13 members, had
the largest representation,, in the house
in 1790. New York and North Caro
lina followed with 10 each. The lat
ter state never rose above 13, but the
former has gone as high as 40, which
figure was atained under the appor
tionment of 1830 and is the largest
representation any stae ever has had.
After 1830 the New York representa
tion fell to 31 in 1860. Since then It
has been rising gradually until now
it is 37. Pennsylvania's present num
ber of 32 is the largest ever enjoyed
by that state. From the first census
to the present Rhode Island, with her
two capitals and double name, has been
uniformly represented by two con
gressmen. Delaware had two members
during the decade of 1S10-1S20, but
otherwise has had but one in the house
at any time.
The First Apportionment.
The first apportionment made by the
constitutionitself provided for one
member to every 30,000 inhabitants
with the result that at its first ses
sion the house contained only 55 mem
bers. The census of 1790 resulted in
an increase to 105 with 33,000 as the
basis of representation. From that
time forth with one exception the in
crease both in representation and ratio
has been steady, as follows: 1800141
members with a ratio of 33,000; 1810,
1S1 member and ratio of 35,000; 1820,
213 members and ratio of 4n nnn- issn
240 members and ratio of 47,700; 184o'.
Ooo t - ..
-.. iiieuiuers ana ratio or -0,6S0; 1850,
33 members and ratio of 93,423; I860,
243 members and ratio of 127,381; 1870,

joo memDers ana ratio of 173,901; 1900,

The old leaders of the house are anx
ious to keep the size of the house down
and few of them will admit the possi
bility of an enlargement to bevond 400
or 410 at the utmost.
Disfranchisement of Xesro.

of the negro vote in the southern
states will receive attention in connec

The physicians of the countrv have
been agitating the question of their
being allowed to take a greater part in
the training of the nurses who are to
be their chief assistants. Not long ago
Dr. Osier, of "chloroforming-the-aged"
fame, declared that he regretted to see
the trained nurse supplanting the med
ical student in the affection of hospi
tal trustees. With other doctors, he
took the view that the physician should
have more voice in hospital manage
ment, and the training of nurses. He
aJso lamented the fact that nurses of
today are too well educated in tne the
ory of medicine and not sufficiently in
the practice of nursing. He related
how he had been called In to see a
case and had humbly inquired of the
nurse what the surgeon, whom he had
not met, thought of it. She instantly
replied that he tnouglvt there were
features suggestive of the intracanali
cular myxoma. Dr. Osier said he look
ed a little anxious and asked if she hap

it of eplb'lastlc or
She replied without
lunching tnat she thought he said it
was mesoblastic. The doctor did not
think much of her knowledge of medi
cine and less of her recollection.
