CONSTITUTION OF THE HOUSE

vote is at variance with the electoral practice of most foreign countries, and of most parts of the British empire, and many attempts have been made to abolish it. A bill for this purpose was passed by the commons in 1906, but was thrown out by the lords.
Among other changes demanded in various quarters are the reduction of the expenses incident to elections, by holding all elections on one day, and by simplifying and cheapening the machinery of registration; the modification of the condition of residence so as to prevent the disfranchisement of those who are compelled, for business or other reasons, to shift their residence; and the removal of the disqualification attached to the receipt of poor law relief, a disqualification which has already been mitigated in various ways. The payment of members, and of the official expenses of candidates, was promised on the eve of the dissolution of the short parliament of 1910, and proposals for authorizing it were then in preparation.
A far more sweeping change would be effected if the advocates of proportional representation had their way. The devising of sonic means for the protection of minorities against the " tyranny of majorities " has occupied the attention of political thinkers for many generations, and John Stuart Mill, in 186'7, urged in parliament the adoption of Thomas Hare's well-known scheme, but his arguments met with a frigid reception.
