OCR ELECTORAL SY8TBM.
We have read with a great deal of
interest an article in the November
Forum on the Dangerous Defects in
our Electoral System by ex-Secretary
of the Treasury J. G. Carlisle. It is
written in his nsaal strong and vigorous
style, and bis points are brought
out clearly. When the dangers involved
in oar present system are contemplated,
.it is amazing that it has
been tolerated, and it is still more surprising
that a change has not been [

our readers possibly know that the
Twelfth Amendment to the Constitution,
prescribing the mode ol electing
the President and Vice-President, was
adopted on account of the situation in
the election between Jefferson and
Burr in 1801. It wa3 adopted in 1803,
The Amendment has never been satisfactory,
and now and then some agitation
springs up for a change. In 1S24,
"a majority of the States," says Mr.
Carlisle, "through their legislatures,
declared in iavor 01 a ainereac
method," bat although many proposed
amendments were offered,, none of
them conld be. carried through both
branches of Congress. The Senate,
then as now, was a stumbling block,
and when amendments would pas? the
House of Representatives, they would
fail in the Senate. ?vcr?body, who
has given the snbject any thought,
agree that a change ihoula be made,
but an unobjectionable plan has never
Let us briefly suggest some of the
serious dangers that may occur under
the present system, and it will simply
be miraculous if some of them, if not
all, do not occur. As most everybody
knows, the President and Vice-President
of the United Slates are elected
by electors. These electors from the
several States are elected or appointed

latnre may prescribe. Each elector
names on a balM his choice for President
and on aio'her ballot his choice
for Vice-Presiatnt. The person having
the greatest number of votes in the
electoral college shall be President, but
his total vote must be a majority of the
whole number of electors. If no per?
son has received a majority, then, from
the persons, not exceeding three, having
the highest number of vote3 on the
list of those voted for as President, the
House of Representatives shall forthwith
choose the President, the representation
from each State having one
vote. The person who shall receive
the grea'est number of votes, provided
, it. b^majoritz-QClhe-WholeLiianiber- of
electors, shall be Yice-rrewdent. :
Tr> <->o co rift norarm Viavo a maMrttv.
then the Senate shall elect a VicePresident
from the two persons.on the
list having the highest number ef votes. Mr.
Carlisle, speaking of these provisions,
says that they "are not only
cumbersome and inconsistent with the
democratic spirit of our institutions,
but so imperfect in their details and so
uncertain in thoir practical operation
as to constitute a menace to the peace
of the country at each recurring Presi
dential election," and that "it seems
almost, marvelous that we have been
able for so long a period to secure a
regular and peaceable succession of
Presidents and Vice-Presidents." Mr.
Carlisle mentions the very obvious
fact?that the tendency is towards "dispersion
rather tnun of consolidation";
"and that, instead of two great opposing
party organizations, we may <
have, for some time at least, three or 1
four formidable parties, each with an 1

only enabling a mere plurality of the
popular vole to control the entire elect- !
oral rote in every State, but, at the j
same time, greatly increasing the dan- (
ger of compelling the House of tfepre- ?
sentatives to choose the President, and
the Senate to choose the Vice Presi- j
Then, on account of the increa*e in I
the number of political parties, s^p- J
pose that it should happen that more j
than three persons, on the list voted j
for as President, should receive the highest
and an equal number of votes, j
*V>on n/*r?/vrvl?ncr tA fWncfifnfinn .
there would be no choice for President i
in the electoral college, and the House
of Representatives could not, consti- |
tuticr^aily, choose a President, be- ^
causa as already said the House of ]
Representatives must choose from the !
three persons receiving the highest j
number of votes. If more than two t
norsnna nti fhp list vnforl fnr as t
President, receive the highest and equal jr
number of votes, there would be no i
election in the electoral collego and J
could be none in the Senate. The re- 1
suit would be that the United Stales J
would be without a President or Vice- (
President. Then what would become
of 'he Government ? 1

We have just read an article written *
by Mr. G. H. McMaster in 1857 urging
the organization of agricultural societies.
He says: uThe following are
matters which should, I think, enter <

societies. The enactment of 'Not*
fence* law ; a special tax upon negro 11
mechanics; enforcement of the law 4
against trading with slaves, and of the 11
road working law." The "No fence" *

ended the slave law, bat we are still

donbt whether there are more than e
two or three flour mills in the county, 3
and it is barely possible that there is a

nourishing than most of the flour now a
bought, has been made here, and it

In Georgia, some members of the *
General Assembly propose to make a ?

Representative Phinizy, of Richmond J
County, says that there are too many 1
d?n farmers and d?n jackasses in the J
Georgia legislature and that they are 1

is evidently what is jcnown as a ioocball
crank. It is a gooA thiDg that J

in Augusta, otherwise the t:d?n farmers"
might leave Mr. Phinizy at home
at the next eleetion, and pnt a "d?n

The nuts from the young tree were

brating the tercentenary of the introduction
of the tragrant beverage into
England. It is generally supposed that
coffee was first drunk in an English
home in one of the closing years of the
sixteenth century. But. the first csffeo
house was not set up until 1612, when
a merchint who traded with the East
bought a shed in St. Martin's church
yard and converted it into a coffee
tavern, under the managumeot of a
hotel cook", one Paeqaa, whom he

the coffee was so expensive that the
tavern did not repay iLs owner. There
is an old record in the British Museum
which shows that even a hundred
years later coffee was as much as $250
a ton. At one time it rose to the fabulous
price of $9<(0 a ton. Why a ton
is taken as the standard weight is not
obvious, but we read tfc&t thDse who
indulged in the luxury drank as much
throo or lour dishes ax Jinmo, wbiob
may explain it.? Westminster Gazette.
Not Always Understood.
A fact often overlooked, or not al- .
ways understood, is that women suffer
as much from distressing kidney and
bladder troubles as the men. The
womb is situated back of and very
closc to the bladder, and for that rea
son any distress, disease or inconvenience
manifested in the kidney?, back,
bladder or urinary passage is often, by
mistake, attributed to female weakness
or womb trouble of some sort.
The error is easily made and may b3
as easily avoided by setting urine aside
for twenty-four hours; a sediment 01*
settling is evidence that yoar kidneys
and bladder need doctoring. If you
have pain or dull aching in the back,
pass water too frequently, or scanty
supply, with smarting or burning,?
t'lese are also convincing proofs of kidney
trouble. If you have doctored
