THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, ' 189a
PROVED A SUCCESS,
Baker's Ballot Law "Works
like a Charm, and Makes
VERY QUIET DAY IN TOWN.
A Harked Absence of Disorder Around
the Polling Places,
One of the men reached orer the chain to
explain what he meant on the official bal
lot The marshal present requested him
not to toach the tictet, bnt to use a sample.
This example will give some idea of how the
polls were watched to prevent fraud.
Not Much Scratching Done.
Straight Toting was the rule, though
James Breen was cut in the First ward
where Peter Carr worked and voted for
Dalzell against the old newsaper man. As
a rule in Presidental years there is not
much scratching, but yesterday voters were
afraid to take chances with the new ballot,
It was plain how to vote the full ticket
bnt scratching is a little difficult, and rather
than have the whole ballot thrown out for
blunders made In cutting, the voters swal
lowed the whole whether they liked it in

VOTES CAST QUICKLTAND EASILY.
The Law strictly and Impartially
forced to the Letter.
ALLEGHEM CITI CASTS A LARGE TOTE
The general verdict in Pittsburg last
evening was that the Baker Ballot law is a
success, though there" are always kickers
against innovations and improvements in
the voting system. The election passed off
without excitement anywhere in the coun
ty, but the vote polled in the two cities
was very heavy. Early in the day it be
came apparent to Democrats and Republi
cans alike that the new law was working
tatislrctorily, and even the most ignorant
voters were not having any trouble in de
claring their political choice.
After all the bugaboo talk about the
complicated system, voters found it
comparatively easy to mark the tickets.
The majority went to the polls witn iear
and tremblinc, but when they had arranged
the ballot and saw it safely deposited in the
box they heaved a sigh of relief and re
marked, "Why, how simple. A child
could do that." Now this is the general
apinion of unbiased people who want honest
The polling places were a novelty, but
citizens soon got used to their surroundings.

Waiting for Vacant Moths.
Voting in Magistrate JifcKenna's Office.
All parties had watchers on hand to instruct
and give information. The man who knew
how to vote was quite willing to help his
neighbor who didn't.
A Contrast to Former Elections.
The spirit of fairness shown all around is
commendable and in marked contrast to the
lively scramble for votes under the old
plan. The chain around the booths plainly
said to the public, "Thus far shalt thou
come and no farther." People respected
the lines drawn by the law, and though all
the requirements of the act were not
strictly enforced, voters were respectful
and wanted to know what was allowable
and what not The majority agree that
the new system has put the elections on a
higher plain, and if there has been a good
deal of fraud in the past, it will be difficult
to cheat in the future.
The effect of the law first was to bring
out an early and in consequence a full vote.
The latter result may be due to the in
terest always taken in a national contest,
but it is a fact that a great many people
who probably would not have voted at all
went to the polls to try the new ballot act
They went early because many were afraid
it would be like waiting for a chair in a
barber shop on a Saturday, and they were
under the impression it would take a long
time to vote. Herein they were agreeably
No One Had to AValt tong.
All the precincts in the city were pro
vided with from four to Bix booth, and no
body was compelled to wait more than a
few minutes. The vote in the suburbs and
in the outlying wards was very heavy in
the morning. The citizens deposited their
tickets before going to work, aud many had
made arrangements to remain in the city all
night to hear the returns. As an example
of how rapid the voting was done, a few
instances may be cited. In the First pre
cinct of the Fourteenth ward, 18
tickets had been put in up to
7:30. The eighteenth man was
a barber, and he thought it was pretty
lively work for a half hour. In the first
Drecinct ot the .fcirst ward, Allegheny
William Witherow says 93 votes had been
cast at 9 o'clock, and only one was against
the bond issue.
In the downtown wards of Pittsburg the
vote was slower coming in. In the Fourth
ward the average was maintained all day,
while in the First and Second wards the
workers claimed in the afternoon the vote
wasnotas large as it ought to be. Hovever,
the busiest time in the lower wards is be
tween 5 and 7 in the evening, and yester
day was no exception. The mechanics in
the mills go to work in the morning before
the polls are open, and they quit early in
the afternoon. Many of the boys go direct
to the voting places from the shops, and it
is needless to add that their ballots are
Remarkable Vote at the Northslde.
In Allegheny Superintendent JIuth at
noon had completed the rounds of all the
precincts. He said the vote up to that time
was the heaviest in the history of the city.
Another good effect of the law noticed
was that it stopped the peddling of tickets
around the polls, and there wasn't so much
button-holing of voters as in former rears.
The Democrats and Republicans were very
wniuuiui, tt"i .; wwiculh were numer
ous. A politician stated last evening that
in all his experience he had never seen so
many voters questioned. 2fo favoritism
was shown, and the man who had not ful
filled the requirements of the law in every
detail was turned down. This feature of
the election was oommented upon by work
ers in all parties, and they expressed them
selves as glad to see it It will cause citi
zens to be careful about registering in the
future or lose their votes. The usual
crowds around the voting places were on
deck, but they were smaller than usual.
A United States marshal was stationed in
every precinct, and the officers saw that
good order was maintained. No boisterous
talk was permitted, and, indeed, the mar
shals had little to do. The official tickets
were carefully guarded. In one ot the
downtown districts a discussion arose in the
crowd about tome requirement ot the law.
all its parts or not Peter Carr vowed he
would not vote for Jim Breen when he was
nominated, and he kept his word. He
claimed he would line up 250 other Demo
crats from the First ward against
him, and he was confident
veterday that Breen would run away be
hind the ticket in the ward. George Free
was another Democrat who was mad at Mr.
Breen. He didn't vote for Dalzell, and he
cut the Democrat Other Democrats in the
First ward claimed that Carr's influence
would not amount to much and Mr. Breen
would poll pretty nearly the regular vote of
Councilman King wandered back and
forth between the polling places in the
Fourth ward, on Penn avenue. In the
schoolhouse the booths were turned
toward the wall, and the voter
could not be seen. This was done
to give the man in the booth better light
In Barney McKenna's office and other
voting places the booths were located so
that the voters could be plainly seen. For
that matter any man who watched closelv
could tell how the ticket was marked.
Another Kink In the law.
Mr. King said he was surprised to learn
that turniug the booths away from the crowd
and the election board was illegal.
He thought that is the wav they
should be located, and the law ought to he
modified to correct this defect "How
ever," he said, "lam greatly pleased with
he new ballot law. It is defective in some
instances, but we will learn from expe
rience, under the Austratian system, the
voter can't be seen. The same Is true in
the Scotch law. The registration is very
fine and prevents fraud. The plan of count
ing is good and will be satisfactory to every-
Tlie white-haired magistrate, Barney Mc
Kenna, tat outside of the chain in his office
yesterday afternoon and watched the people
vote. He said the ballots were coming in
slonly. When asked how he liked the new
law, he replied: "Well, I have heard a
great many complaints about it to-dav irom
voters, but I notice they don't have" much
trouble in marking the tickets."
Down in the first precinct of the First
ward, Alderman Steve Toole and Peter
Carr watched the polls for the Eepublicans
and Democrats. 'Squire Toole said he
liked the new system of voting, but he
thinks the law could be improved. He
suggested for the benefit of those who can't
read or write, and by the way they are
numerous, that the Ohio plan of nutting an
eagle over the Republican ticket and a
rooster over the Democratic should be
adopted. The ignorant would know the
difference between the birds, and couldn't
be taken. In by people who might want to
deceive them. Mr. Toole thinks also that
one cross at the head of the ticket Is enough.
There were five places to be marked on the
ballots in Allegheny county.
Objections to the Numbering.
Peter Carr objected to numbering the bal
lots. He thought that destroyed all the se
creoy. In other particulars he was well
pleased with the system. Mr. Richardson,
of Sewicklej, remarked that the number
was turned under and nobodv could tell
who voted the ticket He argued that the
numbers would be a great help in a recount,
and would insure an honest election. Others
thought the ballot was too cumbrous, but it
can be made more compact in the future.
The First ward people missed the crowds
outside the polls, but the politicians were
glad of the change.
Chief Elliot was down at the Eagle engine
house yesterday afternoon to hear how the
election was going. "This law doesn't in
sure a secret ballot," he Baid. "Any man
can stand ofl from the booths and tell how
the voter is marking the ticket The old
law, with the New York sybtem of registra
tion, is the best The Baker plan is too ex
pensive. I will bet that the election will
cost the counties of the State 52,000,000.
The expenses will be heavy in Allegheny
and Philadelphia counties. In Philadelphia
the Commissioners have erected corrugated
iron booths along the streets. This will
cost a great deal of money."
Failed to Make His Hindi
An amusing incident occurred in the Sec
ond precinct ot the .Fourth ward. A man
with a red nose opened the door and called
the young Democratic watcher in charge to
step outside. The fellow had several com
panions with him on the pavement, and it
was evident that the gang was hard up for a
drink. "Now watch me bluff them," said
the young man. "I tell you," he continued,
as he stepped outside, "I like one thing
about the Baker ballot law. It stops 1 uh
ing. All those fellows want is booze, but
they will be fooled this time."
In a lew minutes he returned, but the
laugh was on him. "Confound the law,"
he remarked. "It didn't save me. They
were too sharp. First they asked for
whisky, but I flattered myself I had bluffed
them by saying I had none, and the druggist
from whom I eet my suddIv on electinn
day was afraid to sell it on account ot the
new law. 'Well, give us the money, we
will get the stuff,' said one of them. What
was I to do. I hadn't thought of that.
They got it, and I am wiser. "
AT THE HEADQUARTERS.
The County Chairmen Lounged Abont and
Claimed Everything in Sight Gripp
Especially Fleas od With Allegheny
The activity which has characterized the
political headquarters in this city for the
past month was lacking yesterday. The
Chairmen were on hand all day claiming
with great confidence everything in sight
They had little else to do. Every now
and then a voter who had not given much
attention to the new ballot law called for
instructions. In many instances such ap
plicants were put through the moduB oper
audi of voting with a sample ballot so they
had only to go to their district and repeat
the performance to score a vote for their
Chairman Gripp at Republican head
quarters seemed absolutely happy as he
lounged in a chair and rested his leet on a
table during the afternoon. He said ho felt
confident of Harrison's re-election, hut was
particularly well pleased with the county.
"Had I believed it possible the vote would
be so heavy," said he, "I would have placed
Allegheny county's majority for Harrison
higher than 20,000. It's surprising how the
people are turning out Reports from all
over the county indicate the largest vote
ever polled. As far as I have heard there
has been no trouble at any polling place.
At one district in the Second ward, Alle
gheny, more than half the vote palled at the
last general election was in before 9 o'clock
That the Chairman was not talkingfor the
sake of it was generally understood at sport
ing centers down town, where considerable
money wagered was credited to him, though
placed by other parties. Whenever a bet
on the Republican majority in this county
was oflered at less than 18,000, there was
always money to cover it at even figures.
Chairman Brennen had a crowd of the
faithful about him all day. Like the other
Chairman he was sure ot success. He stated
that a number of complaints had been re
ceived that in certain Republican districts
every voter was permitted to take another
person into the booth to assist in prepar
ing his ballot The Eleventh and Four
teenth wards were those most complained
of. Mr. Brennen thought it an outrage
that the law was disregarded in this way.
"The Baker law is intended for a secret
ballot," said be, "and no man has a right
to take another into the booth with him
unless physically disabled or intellectually
deficient. Any man able to see and read
and having the nse of his hand can mark
his own ballot. The law with very little
alteration is bound to be a great success,
notwithstanding all that has been said
The judge of election in the Thirty-fourth
ward opened a package of sample ballots
yesterday morning instead of the official
ones. Before the mistake was discovered
:?7 of them had been voted, 23 by Democrats
and 14 by Reptibticaus. It n as decided by
the County Chairman that those so voting
were not entitled to another vote, because
it was unlawiul to open the box to remove

United States Senator Quay, apparently
the most disinterested and unconcerned in

yesterday in Parlor O at the Duquesne

confident of Republican success or he was
delightfully indifferent as to the outcome
of the national contest, and his "word was

Allegheny Teople Think the Baker Jiallot
System Just the Thins The Bond
Issue to Be an Easy Winner at 3 to 1.
Allegheny is tickled over the Baker
ballot law, and more of her citizens tried it
yesterday than usually go to the polls.
There was an unusual vote out on the
Northside yesterday. A great many people
voted the straight tickets for fear that if
they tried to cut them they would lose their
votes. The people asked for little assist
ance in making out their tickets. In the
whole First nard there was but one kick
against the system. Then that man made
an apologv alter he had voted. The elec
tion officers think the vote can be counted
as rapidly as under the old system.
The one issue across the river this year
is the bond proposition, and from appear
ances yesterday Mavor Kennedy's pet
scheme will win easily. A year ago the
bond issue was not properly handled, but
this year every detail has been looked
after. Mayor Kennedy had 400 tickets of
each kind at every polling place. The bal
lots "against" the issue never run out, but
it was necessary to replenish the "for" kind
iu a number of instances. Chief Murphy
aud Superintendent Muth were ardent
supporters for the issue which would
improve Allegheny. Thee two gentlemen
aud the Mayor were all smiles yesterday
afternoon. Mayor Kennedy wtio just a
trifle doubtful yesterday morning, but Chief
Murphy was devo'd of fear. Just to back

Senator Quay was looking the picture of
robust health. Ho was dressed in a neat
fitting suit of gray. His checks looked
fresh as a girl's and he appeared younger
by ten years than when in Pittsburg some
months ago. He was walking restlessly to

To-day the judges of the three Common
Pleas courts will sit in banc on the trien
nial assessment appeals. No municipal
matter has been in court since the curative
legislation was under fire which interested
so many taxpayers of the city as this. City
Attorney Moreland has prepared all the pa
pers for the city's side of the case. Among
other things he has the final official total of
the triennial assessment It shows that the
cash valuation of all property was f 274,255,
559. The taxable valuation, as returned to
the City Treasurer, was 5253,315,029. Since
the assessment was returned to the Treas
urer exonerations, reducing valuations,
changing classification, changes of property
and transfers reduce the total by .170,
029 93. This would reduce the tax income
The i appeals number 260, and about 30 of
the best attorneys in the city have them in
charge. Every point in each case will be
vigorously fought in court to-day. One
hundred of the appeals are on valuations.
Of these 14 are irom the Thirteenth ward,
31 from the Twentieth, 11 from the Nine
teenth and 22 from the Twenty-second
ward. Several of the downtown wards are
also represented in the list, among them
being W. J. Mellon, KaufmannBros., Paul

ance of the appeals are on classification. It
is expected that all will be settled by the
decision of the court on the first three or

They Got Around the Law In the Thirteenth
The operation of the secret ballot and dis
ability features of the Baker law was
rendered farcical in the Seventh district of
the Thirteenth ward. The usual remarks
from one of the judges as a voter passed be
hind the guard rail was: "Do you want
somebody to help you fix your ticket?"
If the answer was in the affirmative, or even
if the citizen seemed in doubt on the sub
ject he was furnished mthan assistant very
speedily. No claim of disability of any
kind was necessary, and little attention was
paid to the three minutes' rule. The only
time the election officers protested was
when one voter and his assistant com
menced to mark a ticket on top of the bal
lot box, instead ot in a booth.
Bon. John W. Morrison's Vote Challenged
State Treasurer John W. Morrison
dropped into Bellevue yesterday to cast his
vote, and to his surprise was challenged by
D. H. Martin, the well-known Prohibition
ist, who claimed that Mr. Morrison was a
non-resident Mr. Morrisou, however, in
sisted that Bellevue would be his home as
long as he lived. His vote was received,

The Sixth ward was the doubtful one as
regards the issue. Superintendent Muth
made a canvass of tho precincts in this ward
late yesterday afternoon and was convinced
that the bonds would carry. He said that
the large property holders "were all in favor
of it The opposition is expected from those
who own little homes. A tour was made
around the downtown districts and the issue
was winning from 2 to 1 to 10 to 1. In the
fifth precinct of the First ward there was a
light vote for the bonds, but every ballot
cast was for the issue. In the second pre
cinct ot the Second ward at 5 o'clock 125
votes had been cast and only 2 of that num

With ery few exceptions everything
went smoothly on the Southside yesterday
under the new ballot law. During the
morning an unusually heavy vote was cast,
but toward evening the balloting fell be
low the average. Two of the largest dis
tricts on the Southside are the First and
Fifth precincts of the Twenty-sixth ward.
In the first named there are 3G2 registered
voters, but only 87 of these appeared at
the polls. In the latter district there are
30S voters, but only 1G9 came to time.
The greatest trouble of the day seemed to
occur in the Second precinct of the Twenty
fourth ward. Here the Democrats and Re
publicans had several wrangles over voters
asking for instructions. One of the Demo
cratic officers was positive that a number
of Republican votes would be thrown out
when the count was inaugurated. In the
Third district of the Twenty-fifth ward the
only hitch was when the election officers
discovered that from 10 to 15 voters had
deposited specimen ballots. In the Fourth
precinct of the Twenty-sixth ward there
was no Democratic supervisor. Joseph
Dapper, the watchman, tried to perform
this duty, but had a great
aeai or aimcuuy in noiaing nis end up, as
the Republicans opposed him in his self-appointed
position. In the Sixth district of
the Twenty-sixth ward things were coming
so slowly about 4 o'clock that the indira
fell asleep, greatly to the annoyance ot one
of the watchmen, who was afraid someone
would take advantage of the circumstance
to stuff the ballot box.
In the Second precinct of the Twenty
sixth ward Georee B. Carle, the T)emn-
cratic watchman, became quite noisy over a
point in dispute. After being cautioned to
keep silence without obeying, Supervisor
Goodfellow ordered his removal, which was
accomplished with some difficulty by the
