The latter two measures were both dropped be cause of the two houses being "con trolled by opposite parties a circum stance which practically assured each would be blocked. In the legislature of 1910 the matter will of necessity arise again. Called It "Unjust." Way . back in 1878 the democratic platform denounced a republican ap portionment as "unjust and dishonor able." In 1879 the democrats got their fingers in the pie and passed a law which as late as 1891 was considered by the supreme court and declared un constitutional. In 1885 the democrats again gerry mandered the state having a major ity in both branches of the house, of about two thirds. -The republican platform of 1886 said : - "It passed apportionment bills dis franchising nearly half the voters of the state in legislative and. congres sional elections, thus accomplishing under the forms of law what it has accomplished elsewhere by the tissue ballot and the shotgun." The republican platform of 18S8 said: "The Iniquitous and unfair appor tionment for congressional and legis lative purposes made at the behest of the liquor league of Indiana, followed by conspiracy and forgery upon the election returns of 1886 In Marion county, for which a number of promi nent democratic leaders were indict ed and tried, two of whom are now suffering the deserved penalty of their acts," demands the rebuke of every pa triotic citizen." ' Gerrymandered State. In 1S91 the democratic party again gerrymandered the state. Governor Alvin P. Hovey returned the bill pass ed by the legislature, with his veto. He said in his message: "To me this bill seems unfair, unjust, unwise and. unconstitutional." He went on' to show what had been accomplished by the democratic ger rymander of 1886, the republican com plaints upon which have heretofore been commented upon. He showed In the election of 1888 t.thih was by actual count of the entire number of votes in the state, republican by a majority of 23S7. But with this ma jority in officially counted votes, the democrats returned to the house of representatives 57 members, while the republicans returned only i&. ."A majority of the electors controll t 4 V PAIXAmtTM "AD SITX-TKTJEGRAST.

Hoover. l-2t ed the presidential election and the state ticket in favor of the republi can party," said Governor , Hovey, "whilst the redlstricting of the state in 1885 for the election of represent atives gave a minority of the electors the power to send a majority of the state senators and representatives' to the legislature and 'ten representa tives out of thirteen to congress. "Any law passed by either party in any of the United States that gives power to a minority over a majority should be held in abhorrence and con tempt by every honest freeman. As the state is now apportioned the ma jority of the. electors of the state con trary to the constitution, have no po litical rights. They are virtually dis franchised. ' The bill for the reapportionment in 1891 passed notwithstanding the ob jections of . he governor 'thereto. Passed Over a Veto. But the bill passed over the veto of the governor. The republican par ty pledged Itself to warfare against the dishonest policy manifested in the bill. The courts declared the demo cratic act of 1891 to be unconstitu tional, pointing out in decision the un fairness of the representation created. It was not until 1897 that the re publicans got a trial at the division game and they played it so well that ven the democratic party In its plat forms of 1898 and 1900 found nothing against Vhlch to protest. ' The republicans legislated unwise ly when they came to bat in 1903. Their apportionment for the election of senators and representatives was knocked out by the courts. They "came back" in 1905 with another bill along different lines which amply squared for the false step of 1903. .. The records of the two parties step by step, speak for themselves. From them the voters may decide whether they, want, a Taggart division of the state or not this fall. A TEACHERS County superintendent C. W.

New Tork, Sept ' 1. -A bulletin !ust . issued by the government Rives facts never before collated about Christian , ministers In American cities, thetr number and salaries, and about the mortgage debts of churches. The fig ures are for 1906. but have just been ' made public, and are more exhaustive even than religious bodies ever have attempted. There were 164,830 Christian minis ters and 1.084 Jewish rabbis in the United States in 1 90S and tney In crease at the rate of nearly 4,000 a year. Their average salary la $66 and there was paid to them la 1906 a total of $69,667,587. , Baptists and Methodists have more than half the) whole number of ministers In th ; country, due to their large number of small churches, especially In rural " districts. In Manhattan and Brooklyn are sev eral scores of ministers , whose salar-1 ies exceed $5,000 a year. ' The highest salary ever offered a minister to preach in New York was $18,000 a . ? year and a house, offered last year ' by the Fifth Avenue- Presbyterian ; church. Manhattan and declined! Several ministers receive $15,000 ' 4 -year, and there are a dosen or more who get $12,000. These salaries are the highest la the world. London and Berlin aver - ages are hardly more than $3,000 a . year. That Is, a London minister who " gets $3,000 is near the top. In New . Tork he Is near the bottom. . The government shows the average salaries of ministers In cities having 300,000 population and over to be: Baptist, $1,793; Congregational. 938; Methodist, $1.42; Presbyterian. $2,450; Protestant Episcopal. ' $1,873; Reformed, $1,938; Roman Cathotto, ' $684 and Jewish, $1,491. In the smaller cities nad rural dis tricts, ministers' salaries run away ' down. Baptists In the South average . ,: $334 and colored' Baptists in the South $227. On the other hand, bodies that , are strongest in the cities.' like the Unitarian, the Protestant Episcopal and the Roman Catholic, the averages stay about the same. . For example, Unitarians reeolve the . highest average salaries of all, their figure being: $1,653. The Protestant Episcopal ranges down from $1,873 to $1,517, the Roman Catholic does sot " fall off at all. the rural districts rang-; ing higher than the average, at $724. The average salaries of Christian Science readers Is only $234 tor the whole country, with $958 as the aver age In cities having 300.000 population or more. The government explains this carious fact aa that readers are practitioners as a rule and are' expect-' ed to earn their own support. '- In actual money. Methodist minis- ters get most of all, their salaries am ' ountlng annually to $16,150,000. Bap tists receive $10,223,000, Presbyterians $7,610,000, Roman Catholics $S,77t,0CV Episcopalians $4,887,000, Congress- ' tionallsts $4,154,000, Reformed $i,682, 000 and Jews $801,000. Not all bodies reported, so these figures, in practical ly every Instance, ought to be increas ed by one-fifth for 190$. and anoth er fifth for the present year.' It Is estimated on the basis of these rsvv ports that In 1910. $100,000,000 will be paid in salaries, and that congre gational expenses, missions, and ex-. , tensions will involve $300,000,000 more. The value of church property hi ' New York is $153,953,740. This does not include parsonages, hospitals, or asylums, only buildings used for pub lic religious worship. ' The debts upon all is $19,062,419. about 12.3 percent.
