PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION. The committee of the Proportional Representation Society in their first annual report, presented to the members onWednesday, write in a congratulatory vein with reference to the progress which the society has made during the past year. It appears that there are kindred societies at Geneva, Rome, Paris, and Brussels, with which the committee put themselves in communication, and that while they have mainly directed their efforts to the improvement of Par.- liamentary representation they have endeavoured to insist upon the importance of the same principles in the election of municipalities and School Boards, The committee do not believe that the present syste.,u will work satisfactorily at Parliamentary or othsit elections, and they therefore propose to continue to use their best endeavours to educate public opinion on the subject. The committee express in warm terms their obligations to Mr. Courtney and to the late Mr. Fawcett. The society has founded I several braiicho- and issued many publications. Its inoome since its formation amounts to 21,291 5s. lOd., and its diao bursements to 21,012 149. 8d.
