Trial in Minneapolis Resulted in Put

"The Minnesota primary electlou
system marks a new era In politic-.,
and Is a retention not ccn second to
tho Australian ballot," said Senator
Washburn of .Minnesota, after ho hail
watched tho results of the new direct,
concurrent primary election law, iwn
for the first time In Hennepin county,

After tbo law wns passed hy tho

vote at primaries. Having registered,
tho citizen Ucpubllcnn or Democrat
gets two tickets, 0110 containing Re
publican and tho other Democratic can
didates whoso names had been placed
on tho tickets through petitions of not
less than 5 per cent of the voters cast

tbo last previous election, There may
be a dozen candidates an the samo par

each candidate for tho place appeal K
nt tho top under tho designation of

lots, tho theory being that no namo
should havo the advantage of appos
ing at tho top of all tho ballots, Should
other parties enter tho contest the
number of tickets would he Increased,
one ticket for each party going to every
1'ncli voter marks ono ballot only,
returning both ballots pinned together
as he recehed them to tho judge, who

places them In the box. Later ihv
crosses on the marked ballot are cer
dlted to the respective candidates aim
tho unmarked ballot is returned to the
City Clerk. If a voter blunderingly
marks both ballots, only the one con
taining the greater number of marks l
counted. As a result of the first pri
maries held In Minneapolis under thu
law It Is declared that better candidates
than over beforo wore chosen. Men who
had refused steadily to ho drawn Inio
tho old style primaries and conventions
now came to tho front and declare-
their candidacy. A slgnlllcant devel
opment was tho fact that every profes
sional ofllccseeker whoso namo appear
ed on the ballot was rejected. Time

means a serious criticism, because eatih

faced the voters on election day was
nominated, Touching tho opposition In
the Legislature to tho law he framed,
Its first actual test and danger of hos
tile amendments In tho next Legisla
ting Mr. Day says:
"At first It was urged that the law
wis cumbersome and Its machinery Im
possible of application. It would re
quire u ticket twelve feet long; not
over twenty totes could be polled In ,11
hour; the vote could not be counted
In a week, and tho law wns unconstitu
tional. All these assertions have been
tested by actual trial and have be'in
shown to be totally without foundation.
The ticket was eighteen Inches long,
the voter voted more rapidly than a
general election and the count was ac
complished in a few hours. Certain al
leged lmproements have been sug
gested. It has been suggested that a
voter bo forced to mako affidavit as to
his party and receive hut one ballot.
That makes a public ballot and would
keep away from tho polls hundreds of
men, who while not absolutely afraid
that their employers would discharge
them for being of opposlto pollttca,
would rather remain away from tao
polls nnd not run any risks. It has been
suggested that ono registration day be
for Democratic voters another day for
Republican. Tho same objection ap
plies to that, Doth these plans would
cut down the vote and give tho party
bosses opportunity to get a list ot tho
party oters and whip employes into
