The New-, anid Cou:-ier. Nov. 13-Editorial.
A member of the State Legisla
ture, whose letter is publish:d to-day,
gives soma strong reasons why t ue
pr. scut mode of allotting seats in the

ciianged. The exist ng plan is for

agree With hirn in the opinion that
tnt-rc is no torce in tilem. and that,
in Sime r,spects at least. they are
really reasons against the system, in
stead of leing in its favor.
The Legislature represents the
whole State, and it usust be the de

the State, that every sembla, ce of
sectionalism shall be removed, and
that each ml ember of tie L tgislature,
in his words and acts, shall look
to the interests of the Sta e as a
wi.ole. When the members of the dif
ferent coui tit.s are iutermingltt,! on

i his is a most csirable consuminua
tion. Under the present arrangement,
the representatives from the diiferent
cuunties,who ai e elected by counties,
go to Columbia as delegations from
the couuti, s, sit in the liouse of Rep
reseutatives as dele_ations, and vote
and speak pretty much in the same
way. The strictly local ideas, feelings
and prejudices which it is so impor
taut to dissipa:e, are strengthened
arnd confirmed duiing the legislative
-ession.
It is to be hoped that the Legisla
ture, upon reassembling, will modify
the ru es so that the members will be
disti ibu-ed by lot as individuals on
the floor, in the same way that they
are distributed in the House of Rep
resentatives at Washington. Perhaps,
too, this will check the torrent of ;o
cal legislation which has been inju
rious a!ready and is growing in mag
nitude.
There are very few in3tances, in
deed, in which special legislation
that is, legislation for a particular
county. or group of counties-should
be permitted. - Constitutional amend
ments prohibiting it have been adopt.
ed latterly in many of the States.
Trhe desire of the people of a coun
ty for a particular measure is not in
itself a sufficient reason why it should
become a law. If it be inconsistent
with the interests of the State as a
whole, it is not safe to adopt it be
cause a few persons in one part of
the State desire it. There is hardly
any legislative measure which pres
ses equally beneficial to all sections.
The rule should be as to ascertain
what is for the greatest good of the
greatest number, and embody that

wish for local legislation continue to

perhaps more,

we trust they will be considered, and
that they will be promptly acted upon

IVOLUTION,
As our readers have doubtless seen,
our PreBbyterian neighbors have late
ly been greatly agitated over the
question of Evol ution. It may be re
marked, by the way, that no body of
religious people seem to be quite so
congenial to agitation as the P?resby
terians. They seem to regard all
questions of th.eology as fundamen
tally dea jde, no matter how small or
temporary. Everything most be con
tended for, or against, and definite
ly settled, down to the finest and
most trivial distinctions. They have
been trying last to settle Evolution,
which we may also say, by the way,
we do not regard as trivial or unim
portant. But it is a dreadfully ii
practicable question. It might as
well be let alone by the churches, in
all probability for several centuries
to come. Tbe scientists themselves
cannot handle it, and surely the
churches cannot. And when one re
flects, only a very little, be is a wa
kened to some amazement that they
cannot see this at the beginning. Ev
olution is a theory, not a fact; a con
jecture, not a demonstration. It has
never- been proved, and if it ever
should be proved ages may elapse
beforehand. On the other hand it
may be im possible to prove it,
throughomut ali time. At present

IOW TIIE PRESIDENT I1
ELECTED.
Technically speaking, the Presi
dent is not elected by the people,
and the people do not vote directly
for any Presidential candidate. They
cast their ballots for electors, choose
a President and Vice President. In
each State the number of electors is
equal to the number of Senators and
Representatives which the State has
in Congress. In New York there are
thirty-six electors. Each party has
an electoral ticket with the names of
these thirty-six electors printed on
it. The electoral ticket which re
ceives the greatest number of popu.
lar ballots in the State will .be chosen
by the people, and the electors named
on it will *be entitled to give their
votes for the candidates whom they
represent.
The electors who are chosen will
meet in each State on the first Wed
nesday in December and cast their
votes for a President and Vice Presi
dent. As a matter of law, they can
then vote for whom they please. They
are not legally bound to vote for
Cleveland or Blaine, or any other
person who was a candidate before
the people. As a matter of usage and
public trust, they are expected to
vote for the candidate whom they are
pledged to support.
Certificates of the votes cast by the
electors in each State are then made
out and sent to W ashington. These
certificates will be opened in the pre.
scnce of the Senate and House of
Representatives and counted on the
second Wednesday in February. The
total number of electoral votes is 401.
The candidate for President receiv
ing the majority of these-that is, 201
-will be declared President. If' no
person has such majority, then the
election goes into the House of Rep
resentatives, which is reqouired to
choose a President from the persons
not exceeding three-who have re
ceived the most electoral votes for
President. In the House the vote is
by States, each State having one
vote.-New York Herald.
CLEVELANiD'S ANCES[RY.
From the New Haven Register.
It is not generally known that the
bones of one of Governer Grover
Cleveland's distinguished ancestors
lie mnouldering in New H aven soil;
and that he was formerly well known
and highly esteemed here. Such is
the case. In a bright and cheery room
at No. 125 Wall street a Register rep
resentative was introduced to the wid
ow of the late Abijah Cleveland, of
this city. She is a pleasant spoken,
elderly lady, and a daughter of Da
vid Breed, of this city, who very
many years ago lived on George
street. Mrs. Cleveland is a live-long
resident of New Haven, and Profes.
sor Dwight and Bishop Coxe are both
cousins of hers. Mrs. Cleveland has
an excellent mem,ory.
