Representative C. N. McArthur,
who left for Washington this morn
ing to be on hand for the coming
session of. congress, scheduled to be
gin next Monday, declares his oppo
sition to any and all plans to- In
crease the membership of the house.
On the other hand, . he said he fa
vors a reduction in the number of
representatives and expressed the
opinion that such a reduction would
promote both economy and effici
ency in ihe conduct of the. nation's
business., - ,:. j
"I shall vote asainat all proposals to
r Increase the membership of the house,"
said McArthur. . . v
. 'The present membership tf 435 is
'altogether too large and unwieldy and
there is too much dodging of individual
responsibility. It has been the history
of all large legislative bodies that power
gravitates into the hands of a few lead
ers, while smaller bodies tend to devbp

possible to keep order In the house and
with the addition of 50 or 60 new mem

able ,1 cannot predict the result of the
agitation for a larger house but I am
fully determined to oppose any and all
legislation atonic that line and, if the op
portunity presents itself, I shall vote to
reduce the membership. .
' "This agitation for a larger congress
comes from states which have failed to
keep up with the population procession
and which will lose some of their pres
ent membership if the existing quota Is
maintained. Members of 'congress
naturally do not like to vote themselves
out of office after the expiration of the
sixty-seventh congress, but the interests
of the country are mqr important, ac
cording to my way of thinking, than the
interests of politicians ; and the par
ticular states they represent,
t' "It has been " argued thaCan increase
in the membership of the house would
give . Oregon another, representative.
. .What benefit would tbts be to Oregon if
vorresponding increases were allowed in
all other states that have increased in
population since the last apportionment?
LOXGER TERM "CROEI
. "I would like to see larger delegations
from Oregon and other Western states,
but what could they accomplish If more
members were allotted to the East and
, "I am in favor of a constitutional
amendment lengthening the term of rep
resentatives In congress to three years
and lengthening the presidential term
to six years, with-a one term limitation.
Such an arrangement would produce
better legislation, better administration
and less small politics." -

'Phone Company Plea
For Increased Kates
, Salem, Nov. SO. In the face of the
present condition of business through
out the country, the recent application
of the Pacific Telephone & Telegraph
company ' for an increase in telephone
rates In Oregon is most inopportune,
according to an answer to the applica
tion filed with the- public service com
mission this morning by the city of
The answer attacks the application
and declares that the increases sought,
npr any increase whatever, are Justified
under existing conditions.. It points out
that thousands .Of " men are being
thrown out of employment through the
closing down of industries, farmers are
being compelled, to sell their produce
at a loss, and many 'business men are
facing ruin, while the Pacific Tele
phone company continues to hand out
huge salaries to its numerous officials
. and big wages to . many of its em

during its short existence and about Its
future plans, 150 members of the local
district of the association ei pressed their

Lewis, made explanations to all sorts
of Inquiries as to th conduct ef various
features of the association's operations,
answering mild objections by two mem
bers as to the slowness of the final ra

the regular course of bookkeeping and
routine. -He advised the growers to
