TEN DOLLAR POLL TAX,
Poll tax ten dollars, with an
eight dollars rebate for the voter
who will go to the polls and cast
his ballot on regulur election days.
This Is one ot the propositions put

Introduced and discussed In the Leg
islature ot that State.
First off, It Bounds like a freak,
but the principal supporter ot the
measure at the hearing before the
legislative committee was the act
ing president of the Essex County
Associated Hoards of Trade, and he
was seconded by the president of
the Lynn Hoard of Trade. So It Is
well vouched by business men, and
they are presumed to oppose freaks.
Tho purpose of the bill Is to get out

duty of the good citizen Is to exer

Kor over 150 jears, on every forum,

"In 1909, In this Stnte (Massa

sessed polls, and out of that number
only 670,724 were registered. There
were 334,913 citizens of this com
monwealth who did not even make
the effort to register nt the State
election. The percentage of those
not eligible to vote last enr was
very small. Certnlnly nil of the cit
izens who registered must have been
citizens of this country, who wcro
eligible to excrcUe theti' right of
franchise. Out of the entire num
ber registered, 108,087 did not vote
at the last State election; over a

believe lu compelling a citizen to
vote, but I believe that If you
oblige a man to vote along the lines
of this Jill! that the number who
would not conio out to vote is less
than five per cent, of the register
ed vote. Men would hesitate a long
time before paying $i0 and the men
who hesitate thc4hrdest are your
wealthy citizens. It would obviate
the necessity of thoso gentlemen
who are nfllceholders, or seeking to
be such, gottlng out the vote. Then
