No ballot reform this year. Gov. Hill
Bout tho cxpoctod veto of the Paxtou bill
to the Assembly tonight It excited no
comment except by its length, the Gov
ernor needing a great deal of room to ex
lnin hy he sees fit to defy public domaud
and to deny the people the reform so prg
Tho Itopubliciins took the voto with
looks that said "Wo told you so," while
the more decent leinoerats lookod not a
littlo ashamed. Tho veto wua laid on tho
table, there, being no uso of attempting to
puss tho bill in spito of it. .
Mr. Paxton remarked to mo: "It 1b
(trance that Gov. Hill alone can find rea
sons to veto this bill. Tho iVtuocrut of
thu West mnku it a party question. It
jiuwt bo Hint he behoves and knows such
a law would end politically David lUnnolt
Hill. I don't think wo will pais tho Gov
ernor's bill, ctiliod tho 'Linton bill.' It
rony hnvo good points, but it is too lato in
tho seion to coiiMider it. lViides.wo aro
not hero to mss law at tho Governor's dic
tation. Furthermore tho vital principled!
the exclusively olliiiiil ballot must now bo
abandoned. Without it thuro ran bo no
ballot reform, and tho Governor knows it.
His pretense alxxit wanting ballot reform
is thus clearly shown. Tho Kepublieans aro
content to let the coplo of the Ktuto (leal
w ith the man who has tonight deliberately,
for purposes of his ow n, prevented them
from securing the puril) of tho ballot"

"This particular bill indeed ruins even
the plausibility of the system and makes
it easy for the vote buyer to obtain tho

A PBACTICAL OIURCTIOX.
One of the roost serious objections to
tho bill in the Governor'! opinion is the
necessity tnat tho ollicial ballot shall be
finally completed a certain number of
days before the election, and on this
point he says:
"I am utmltornbly optioned to any sys
tem of election which will prevent tho
people from putting candidates in nomi
nation at any time, and voting for them
by a printed ballot up to the very hint mo
ment before the closing of tho polls on
election day. This is an inherent right
under our' free Institutions, which tho
people will nover knowingly surrender.
"The luat ohjoction which 1 ahull lioro
mention to tho ays to in of an exclusive ol
licial ballot is thu most serious of all. The
system, though not apieariug on its face to
bo unconstitutional, necessarily involves
unconstitutional provisions, liy this bill
the posaihility of any ballot whatever is
uiado to de;iend upon previous nomina
tions, duly certified by tho bodies making
tho same. If no nominations nrn made,
no ollicial ballots, and consequently no
Iscsiniile liunllicial ballots, can bo pro
pared and no election can bo held, for
this bill ullows no other ballots to bo
Tho Governor condemns tho Idea of
having tho names of all candidates printed
utHn a ballot and the system of marking
the selected cundiilato or candidates as
cuuiU'rsonie, and then ridicules a certain
f cut uru of the provisions as to the ollicial
ballot in the following words:
"Tho opportunities for free advertising
would lie Immense, for thu tirkets am to
lie furnished not alone at tho polls on elec
tion day. N'dion 11 of this bill is Worthy
of iH'ing presented in full in this connec
tion. It reads as follows:
Section 11. Tho ('omity Clerk of each
county shall at least aix days lieforu "elec

vided to bo voted for by the electors of tho

The heavy printers' bills that tho public
would have'to pay uro also referred to,
aud then the Governor gives souio atten

Mules. Ho also examines some of the

More than a dozen years ago a number
of Indies and gdnttomen of this city, fore
most amobg whom was Mrs. Felicia
Grundy l'ortur, conceived the idea of buy
ing a lot at Mount Olivet Cemetery for a
Confederate burial ground. By untiring
efforts a fund was mixed and a lot contain
ing about an acre of ground was pur
chased. The lot is ol a circular shape and
located on one of the principal avenues of
tho cemetery. It rises from the pave
ment, tho center being five feet above tho
sidewalk. After tho purchase of tho lot
Ihe bodies of 1,442 soldiers buriod in and
around N'aahville were removed there. Of
this numbor tho names of only two or
threo are known. It is certain, however,
thnt in this circle sleep representatives of
every Southern Slate aud two soldiers
from ew lurk.
Maj. lleintnan, who died bore during
the wnr, is also buriod in tlie circlo. Capt.
Terry Cuhal was inteired there at his own
request, The lot is entirely occupied, with

Miigluud granite and consists of base,

The base is 13x13 feet and is composed
of four blocks of diliorent sixes. On top
of this is the die ou which reals thu shaft,
which is rouud. At the top of the shaft
are other blocks handaoincly carvod in

ccmbtned. It is the modern soap. Nowadays one can
not afford to reject a new idea because it promises "big
things." These are days of ""big things." Wide awake
men and women are looking for them. She who refuses
the aid of PEARLINE is behind the times far behind.
She might as well reject the comfort and aid of the
steam car sewing machine telegraph electric light,
etc, because she does not believe in them. Millions ap
preciate Pearline, and have for years. Millions more
will appreciate it you will why not begin at once to
use it. Its prodigious popularity proves its merit you
have everything to gain, nothing to lose, therefore try it.
TT Peddlers and some unscrupulous grocers are
lfAyV CI Tf offering imitations which they claim to be Pcarl-J-rVy
Cll ne, or "the same as Pearline." IT'S FALSE
they are not, and besides are dangerous. PEARLINE is never peddled, but
sold by all good grocers. 3 Manufactuisd only by JAMBS PVLE, New York.
