It was estimated met year by tho special committee on enumeration and ap- fiortionmcnt appolntod hy tho Assombly. that f tho l'J3. members of Assembly woro appor tioned among the countlos on tho basis oi tho recont Federal enumeration. Erin county would have seven, raombors Instead of live. Monroe would hnvo four' Instead ot three. King would. havo elghtoen Instoad ot twelve, and New York would havo thlrty-threo Instead of twenty.four. If tlicso figures bo accurate, tho injnstfco of depriving theso counties, ot their, rightful representation cannot bo dis puted. Tho mere statement of thla evil would scorn to bo sufficient for Us Immodlato correction. 8o far ns 1 am awaro. tha present apportion ment la nowhere dofondod from tho charge ot unfairness. Tho only defonse which has boon offered for tho failure to take tho preliminary stop for Its correction, vlr.. the passage of au enumeration bilk was that offered In -tlio minority report of tho Assombly Committeo last year, whloh was to the offect that no onu- S ratlon bill having booh enacted In 1803. tho glsluturo Is. thoroforc. absolved from fur r responsibility for tho performance ot t his obligation until 1803. Huoli n construction, howovcr. Is too prnposterous to argue. Tho enactment of the presont legislative appor tionment and the present congressional ap portionment wero both violations of the Con etttutlonnnd theroforevold.it that construc tion Is tho true ono; for tho for mer was not onactod till 1870. four years after tho enumeration was takon, and the latter not till 18H3, threo yonrs after tbo l't'derat. enumeration. It Is respectfully suggostyd thnt if tho legislature were. still disposed to maintain this strained construc tion of tho constitutional obligation. It muat In consistency regard tlio apportionments ot 18711 nnl 18tt as void nnd the election ot its own members without authority ot law. bo untonablo is such m position that one U forced to the conclusion -that tho refusal to provide, for rightful representation has been basod upon tho unworthy motlvn ot socking to retain partisan hdvatitngo. Tho political comploxlon of tho present Legislature, how evor. removes thn possibility ot such n mntlvo as an obstacle, and. I hone. Insures tho prompt passage of an onumorHtion Mil, preparatory to a roniiportlonmont of ticuutu and Assembly dlbtrlcts. coNantKsioK.u, BxirroRTTOXMKsr.

Not withstanding ,'un increase jot nearly a million In tho populatlou slncnlbSO, our rJtato has only the samu representation In Congress and in the Electoral College that alio was gtvon ton years ago. Tho Iniustlco nt that action I shall not discuss hero, but permit me t suggest that Jt should notlm aggravated bytho refusal now On the part ot the Legislature to vquallzo tho population in the thirty-four districts. As they stand now they are grossly unequal in population. Ono contains I'Jo.OOO inhaltanta another aSS.WO a difference of 130,000.

In 1880 tho pcoplo of tho Kioto voted em phatically for a convention to revise tho Con stitution. Tlio Loglslitturo has yet lulled to provide for hucIi a convention. I am not uwarothnt public opinion has changed with reference to tho desirability of a revision of the Constitution, and I respectfully commend tho subject to the further consideration of tho Legislature. .Efforts are continually being made in tho Legislature to submit tiroposod amendments to tho people, nnd while that method of constitutional revision has tho merit of conservatism, it is believed to bo a patchwork method nut desired by the pcoplo and not yielding tho best results. A conven tion eon posed of able men and thoroughly representative would undoubtedly better sub sorve the public Interests nnd present for ap proval u more comprehensive nnd practical bchomo ot amendments. Tho disinclination ufthn Legislature to endorso the revision ot the judiciary article recently proposed by the Constitutional Commission of 18SH) would seem to mako a Constitutional Convention more nocessaty than over, and I trut tho Legislature at its present session will make thu proper prevision for ono education: ami hie state. 1'eports received by thn Superintendent of Tublic Instruction indicate that the number ot children In tlio State of bdiooluge If. e., be tween five and twenty-one years) in 1801 was 1. 821.773. Thu number ot children attending tho common schools in tho sumo year was 1,054.044. More than 707.000 children of school age, thrrofore.wero either not in school at all. or received Instruction elsewhere than at the public schools. The proportion ot pub lic school children in 1801, consequently, .was about fifty-seven percent, ot tho total number between the ages or Ilvo and twonty-ono. Thq total cost of supplyingthls education to sojjH what more thau halt the children of school lci in tlio htate was $'.'0,'J00.11U.20. The graietf partot this amount was raised bybtutu.ad local taxation. ,-'! Considered avlthotherstntistlcs those flguiea suggoBt bomo beriouB relloctions. In ie.il forty years ago, seventy-five per cent, of tho entire school population attended the public schools. During thoso forty years tho Htato has done much to Improve nnd strengthen its common schools, to increaso their efficiency, nnd to compel attendance, yet during all that tlmo there lias beon a steady decrease ot at tendance in proportion to tho school popula tion, and nearly twenty per cent fewetchll dren. proportionately, attend tho publio schools now than attondod them forty years ago. In tho same interval the expense hns Increasod from l.tM.8JU to SliOJUiUia For each pupil who attended tho public schools auy part ot the year in 1H51 the average cost was filHi; In 1801 it was $10.1'- tiio increase being 750 per cent. If these figures are accurate, atidtliey aro based upon ofllcial statements and reports, they are startllngly suggest I vo. If true they mean retrograding Influence nnd greatly in creasing extravagance in management. Much of the increased cost por capita is undoubtedly explained by tho erection ot new school build ings, possessing greater facilities, better ac. commodatlons, ana mure attractive surround ings. Hut tho surprising tiling is thnt this sort of expenditure has not inorMsod tho pro portion ot children who avail tliemsolves of these privileges, but has beon accompanied by an actual diminution. Hhould tho same ratio of decrease in numbers aud tho same ratio of increnso In oxpenso bo maintained, tho Statoi In a few years will bo actually taxing Its cltN 7uu8 many millions of dollars each year-moro than is needed now for all other purposes ot tloveniment-to supply an education to ujnl uorlty ot Its children. This Is neither democratic nor light. Tlicf Statu must, for lis own protection anil iiii terestri. so.t that tho opportunities torn c-onti inon school education aro orforcd to its chlU dren. but it will not be justified in ralsinglame sums of money by taxation for tilts pur-i pose without accomplishing a corresponding amount ot gaud. If there is waste in Mm presont lnvbh expenditure It should budls-j covered and cheeked. If tho present eompol-l sory mlucMtlon law Is not effective, and thd ovidenco Is clear that It is not it should bd strengthened by wise amendment. Certainly thorJtuto cannot afford to permit thousnudH of its children to grow up In Ignorance only tq increaso that population which crowds ,oui jails, our reformatories, nnd our poorhousas and menaces tho Intcgritypt our publio sextiacq nnd our institutions with tho weapon of an un lntalligent ballot. ;., No one belluvos morn thornughlylnourcbms mon school system than do I. it is tho groat) hopper Into which the. untrained juvoaUd minds of Irish.

It will first he necessary, however, to ascertain the causes of tho presont unwelcome tendeu clos which statistical, comparisons demon strate. It may bo found thut much ot the pro portionate falling off la general attendance (aside from that whloh is explained by tiio.lnr creuBo ot prlvato schools), and certainly flit increnso In expenditure, arise from thomoditra tendency to so enlargo the curriculum of the public schools that they attempt too much, and involve tho Htato beyond Its propor measure of responsibility. Certainly advocates of hlghor education nt Btate expense can expect ilttlo sympathy from lawmakers when tlio state, ovon with liboral appropriations, seems unable to compel merely rudimentary Instruct tion. nnd thotiennds of children uro growing up without mi education whatsoever.

Thn movomont hns caused great enthusiasm In England and in this country, anil seems to have accomplished much good in stimulating Intellectual tastes among thn people. , It has recoivod thu cordial support of most leading oducators and tho generous, encouragement of press and pulpit. Vhllo those who expect It when fully dovoloped to .fill tho placo of actual tralnlnglnrollegeaand universities am quite likely toho disappointed, there is o cry reason for behoving thnt It wilt raise the In tellectual standard of tho peoplo and diffuse more broadly tho benefits of hlghor education. With such purposes and alms ovory good citi zen must bo in cordial sympathy. Heretofore, howover. unlvorslty extonslon efforts have boen carried on under tho super vision of somo established university, or of sorao association or Bocloty orgniilrod for tho purpose. For Instance, in England there havo beon four great movomenlB ono under tint direction ofOxrord University, ono under that or Carabridgn Unlvorslty. ono under, that of tho Victoria University, and tho fourth under that of tho London Hociety for the Extension of Unlvorslty Teaching. In tho United States successful movements havo boen associated w th the University of Pennsylvania, later with tho American Hociety for the Extension of University Teaching, with Brown Uni versity, with tho Kew York and Brooklyn 8o cloty for Hchool and University Extension, and with other educational bodies or associations. Fortho first tlmo in tho historyof tho move ment howover. direct Government aid and -oii-enuragomont havo beon given.

The already excesslvtt tax ation of the peoplo for this latter purpose aud the lamentably inadequate results I have pointed out nbovo. Reform is necessary before oxtonsion. My fears that thu State will eventually find tho control nnd supervision of university ox tension nn enormously expensive undertak ing, wrong in principle because it taxes thn majority for tlio benefit ot the few. and Indefensible ns Htato iiolicy except under tho broadest view ot publio, wplfare. aro based chiofly upon tho testimony of thoso who havo been most closely Identified with tho now movement and upon tho tendency of tho movement where it hns been longest tried. Thus far our Htiitn has committed Itsolf morely to tlio obligation or meeting tho expense incurred by tho llcgonts under their granted authority 'toco operatn with localities, organizations, and a -solutions In this Htnto. where such educa tion shall bo desired, and to aid therein by recommending methods thcrotor. designat ing suttnblo porsons as instructors, conduct ing examinations, granting certificates there upon, nnd otherwise rendering assistance in sucli educational work." The statute miyu ovor oxnressly provides that no part of tho npprotirlutioii shall bo used in paying forthe services or expenses of persons designated or appointed us lecturers or instructors. It bolng tlio intent of the act that such cxpunses shall bo borne by the localities benefited. Yet If tho btatuworo to stop there, tho an ntiul exponsn must bo largely In excess of the present appropriation if thu movement is to bo successful tho tendency ur every Stnto Commission or bureau being toward un In creased expenditure. But will the htatp stop tliefo? Experience nnd testimony in EnglaM do not givu much oncourivgeniout ot an ulllrm ntlve unsvvor to this question. Prof. It. O.

In 1880 a nntional committeo was ajipointed "for obtaining agrant In aid of university extension." In 1800 the. Locnl Tax ation act gave pormission to English county .councils to. apply certain partot tho pro ceeds of a tnx on spirits to technical education under university extension coursos. and one county nlono has this j car appropriated l,5io fortius purpose. Even this Indirect Govern ment usststutieo hus not satisfied tho friends of tho movoment. however, nnd In Juno last, nt a meeting attended by many prominent educators nnd others, it was resolved to peti tion for a Government grant to properly or ganized local bodies for the conduct ot uni versity extension teaching. This direct grant is desired not merely to pay supervisory ex penses, but to meet part ot tno cost of teach ing. There seems ovory possibility that the Oovornment in England wilt soon bo tearing the greater part of the expenso ot this movo ment. Is the prospectnny better fornbstuntion from seeking a larger shnro of Government aid in this Htate. especially when thu entering wedge has already been luscrtcd ?

But that principlo, which our forefathers carefully worked out In theory. Is yet only in nn early, stngo of development We have boon oxteno-i lug and elaborating Its application threuoli'ai century, but Its evolution is far. from, com plete. X bcilovo Us thorough establishment is the prorequlslto to successful municipal. re form. Complcto local self-government In ex clusively local affairs will solvo many existing; evils nnd prevent others which nro npw threatening. . (,1,1 , Tho political tendency in this Btato slace, early In tho presont century haa been in tiro! direction of local solf-govnrnment a gradual evolution ot tlio American theory. Local offi cers with merely locnl duties, originally ap pointed by Htato authority, are now chosen by the peoplo ot tholr localities, nnd In various ways tho powers of subdivisions of tho titato. llko counties, nnd again tho subdivisions of tho counties, llko towns and cltlos and vil lages, havo boon amplified nud increased. Local solf-govornment now llnds practical on dorsoment in both tho letter nnd tho spirit ot our Constitution, and in snlta of attempts to destroy or hamper It contfnuos to commend itself as tho only practical kind ol local ad minlstratlvo reform. Tlie growth ot villages nnd oitlos empha sizes tho Importance ot this question of State policy. Nearly two-thirds of the poople of tho Btato now llvo in villages and cities ot 4,000 or more inhabitants. In 1880 thoro woro sixty municipalities of 4,000 inhabitants or more, with nnaggrogato population of 2.74U.032: In lo!K) thoro woro eighty-four, with an uggro gato population of3.803.577. Tho increasing segregation ot poople presents now questions of municipal administration which the peoplo themselves nro moro capable of deciding wisely than nn irresponsible body clsewhore. To deny them that right Is a speoios of ty rany which is not only unjustifiable in princi ple, but often Imposes minority rule upon a majority nnd leads tho way to groat abuses against which local protests nro vain. Undoubtedly propor changes In our Consti tution would emphasize and strengthen this tondency toward the establishment of homo rule, but it is not necessary to wait for that Homovvhat slow process. Tho Legislature has in its oyrn hands the solution of tho greater partot tho municipal problem. It can wisely extend and enlarge tho functions and powers of locnl authorities, liut above all itcan re frain from unnecessary interference with the affairs ot municipalities. Tho willingness ot tho Legislature in times past to assume the authority of Hoards ot Aldermen, and Mayors. und Hoards of Supervisors his dono moro harm than cood. and no greater benefit can thu Legislature givo our cities than to loavo them to manage their own affairs in their own way. Tho Legislature should bo content with supplying the framework ot municipal gov ernment, wisely guarded against possible abuses, uud within that framework tho prop erly constituted local authorities should havo sole cnarge ot local administration. Whore responsibility is fixed remody for abuses is easy. -t lam not nfrnld to trust tho peoplo, but it the peoplo of a municipality chooso to ondure mls govornment rather than to correct it I am nob awaro that undor our thoory ot government tho Htnto should nttompt tho cotrectlon by", nssumlng municipal authority aud functions.' Tho Stato's intorfcrenco may occasionally ba wtiolesomc. but it is moro likely to bo poral clous. , ,, . STATE CinE OF TIIE INSANE. Tlio Stato is now practically committed ta tho policy of assuming tho entire caro.'or its Indigent nnd Insane poor, llecont legislation, enacted after mucli public exposure and dis cussion of tho evils of tho county system, has dcllnitoly established that policy and tho work of carrying it out is now going nn. Tho last Legislature inndo a liberal appropriation for tho erection ot additional buildings on tho grounds of tho Htato hospitals for tho ac commodation ot tlio insane then con fined In county poorhouses. nnd during tho lustllscul vearHS.inf tho '.'.U-iO dependent in suno lu thu county poorhouses (outside ot ew York and Kings counties) wero trans ferred to tho Htato hospitals. The transfer uf tlio remaining l.'JUJ is expected to be accom plished before the uud ot tho current ilscal year. Tho act otlBiK) provides that when tho final transfer is mndo tho care of the insane shall shall bon Stato charge, und an annual appro- iirlatlon, estlmntod by lho Commission In .unncy at not to exceed Sl.ltOO.OOO for tho present number of patients, will bo necessary to comply with the provisions of this act. Whllo this scums to bo 11 largo amount. It must bo remembered tliat un equal or larger cum is now appropriated fur tho samo purpose with less philanthropic results bv tho county Hoards ot supervisors. Tho inauguration of tho now policy, whllo brought about with humane rather than economical motives, is expected to reduce tlio cost ,01 inalntenaiico by encouraging tho establish ment of morn uniform nnd systematic man agement, and hy offering better opportunities for economy In tho purchase of supplies., Un til New York and Kings counties shnll avail themselves of tho privilege ulfored by t lie net nt IHlK), to turn tho care of their insane overtu thn State, tho now policy will afford mi nnntinl saving or ut least 7m.(mki to tho remaining lllly.elght cotintins. lorabont half thn tax will ho paid by thoso two counties Htato taxation necessarily being general in its nnplicatloli. Dut however thu cost is distributed it muse bo paid by somebody, nnd tho greatest economy consistent with proper ndminlstrai tion should bo exercised. Extravagant xnluriori of ofilcers should bo cut down, and the strictest; honesty nnd Pi iidunen should elianiclerUo thd milchusoiind tisnof hnsnllnl supplies, llullil ings should bo nonportable, but not luxurious, nud the hospiiuls should be restricted as far its possiblo to thosu for whom tliey are In tended namely, tho public insane. 1 'ilie Slate's Investments In hosplialu now amount to Sti.rilto.4bW.Ui.
