COMPARATIVE

Let us cross to France, as our nearest neighbour, and see how the legislature which sits at Paris compares with the parliament which sits at Westminster. There are two houses of the French legislature, the chamber of deputies, consisting of 584 members, who are elected directly for a term of four years by universal suffrage, and the senate, consisting of 300 senators, who are elected for nine years, under a system of indirect election, and of whom one-third retire each year. A senator must be forty years of age. The senators are distributed between the departments, and, on the analogy between a French department and an English county, the electors to the French senate have been roughly compared, for English readers, to (1) the members for the county, (2) the chairman and members of the county council, (3) the chairman and members of the district councils, and (4) delegates elected by the urban and parish councils.
The French senate is a dignified body and contains men of great eminence, ability, and political experience. Its powers are in some respects greater than those of the English house of lords, for, though it cannot initiate financial measures, it claims and exercises the right of amending them. But, politically, it is a much weaker body than the chamber of deputies. An adverse vote of the senate has, on one or two occasions, precipitated the fate of a weak ministry, but these have
