TRANS-RIVER REGION GAINS NEW STRENGTH ON REAPPORTION MEN! Preponderence In Legislature Will Not Be So Heavy For Eastern Section. Pierre. June 0.—The pre ponder vn e of legislhttve membership between, the east "and west river porti'Via oj| the state has always been so heavy itt favor of the eastern part that tit* west could not make any. great show ing if they should at any time ai'-'tnpl to push any measure not to the hkins of the eastern members. Not thar. a test has often come up. but the fr» «»f numbers existed from the beginning! of stateiiooiL aud yet exists, altnougli the west made a decided gain through the apportionment act of the las", ses sion. and will, no doubt, make c.^ti a greater gain through tne next appor tionment. which cannot irome until the session of 1917. The changes the senate must cbme by c-.itting out -ast ern niemljers. as the senate has from the beginning, been up to the ful:. con stitutional limitation of 4i. Wbil the house had room for expansion within the constitutional limitation, th- law makers did not see that «uch courso was required, and while the western part of the state gained in that body, it was also by reductions east -'»f the river. T'p to the 'ast session the we*.t river country had a representation ««f 20 to 149 members of both houses, while the reapprrtionm«*nt gives them out of the 147 membership as it will be for the next sdx years. Up to the last apportionment thes cetion west of the river secured seven out of tf 4"» senators. I'nder the present appor tionment they will get ten out of that number, a net gain of three, an I their gain in the house will then be ten members, or twenty-four out of 1J2. in stead of fourteen out of 104. The ap portionment act of the last session calls for a house membership of 103 i': the first paragraph of the act, bu^ by amendments this was reduced one. but the first paragraph was not charged to meet this amendment.
