the rights of the voter. In the
introduced at this session of the
assembly, the particular provisions to
which Governor Ilill objected were modi
fled, but it is insisted by the New York
papers that Governor Hill and his party
are still against the bill, and are using
ail their influence to defeat the measure
which has already passed the house and
is pending in the senate on third reading.
Whether Gov. Hill will veto that bill in
the event of its passage is still an open
question, but the republican papers of
New York city insist that the bill is be
ing actively and somewhat secretly an-
- tagonized by the party that claims doml
nance in that slate. One of the methods
of warfare adopted by the opponents of
the proposed legislation has been the or
ganization of a literary bureau in New
York city for the domination of print
ed arguments against the measure. Ev
ery member of the Illinois legislature
today received a fnrty-pnge pamphlet
directed against the Hurst-Jones and the
Johns election bills and the Australian
system in general. It is
SIGNED BY HENRY L CLINTON,
of No. 115 Broadway, New York, and
reviews the bill section by section in an
elaborate argument, of which the follow
ing are the leading propositions:
"The bill is faulty in details and fun
"Such a bill would not prevent, but
would promote frauds."
"It would necessarily result in the
disfranchisement of large numbers of
"It would be utterly impracticable."
"It would he powerless for good and
potent only for evil."
"It would be unconstitutional and
The following are some of the areu
ments made by the author of this elabor
ate document: "The whole system hinges
upon the printing of ballots at public
expense, and the distribution of them by
worn officials. The county clerk in the
different counties in the state is to have
sole charge -of printing and distributing
ballots. The theory is that the county
clerk ia to print the names of the candi
dates (with proper designations of the
offices they aspire to rill) nominated in
the way and by the methods designated
by the bill."
"The door would be open to frauds
without number; they could be practiced
with ease, and almost with impunity.
Under the present system the committees
of political parties and the candidates are
sufficiently interested to see that the bal
lots are correctly and properly printed.
But under the operation of this bill those
mostly interested, until the poles opened
on the morning of election would have
HO OPPORTUMTT OF ASCERTAINING
whether the ballots were correct, and if
they were incorrect there would be no
fay of remedying the evil."
"The fourteenth section provides as
follows: 'Before the opening of the polls
the county clerk of the county shall
cause to be delivered to the judges of
election of each election precinct or town
which is within the county, and in which
the election is to be held, at the polling
place of the precinct or town, the proper
number of ballots of each kind to be used
In such precinct or town.' "
"This section ought in explicit lan
guage to state exactly when the ballots
are to be delivered. Although it does
not expressly say so, the fair construction
is that they are to be delivered on the
morning of election. Of course, they
should be delivered after the boards of
election judges have organized and be
fore the voting begins. They must all
be delivered at or about the same time
It would not do to send these ballots before
the morning of election, for that would
afford opportunities for tampering with
them. T have them all delivered on
the morning of election, in any of the
large cities, would be somewhat of a task.
-The bill provides no safeguards against
mistakes ad frauds. Suppose the per
son instructed to deliver the ballots
should fail to do so in time, or should
not deliver them at all . In such election
districts voting could not proceed. How
easy would it be for dishonest judges to
collude with the persons instructed to des
liver the ballots. If voting were thus de
layed in a few election districts for
OKI HOUK, OR HALF AN HOUR,
the Jesuit of the election might be
changed and the majority of votes in
such districts practically disfranchise.
Such delay involving might change the
result of the election even in respect to
the city and county or state officers.
Bach a delay in 1884 might, and probai
bly would, have changed the result of the
presidential election, the successful can
didate having a majority in New York
(which decided the election) of less than
"The greatest evils which would in
evitably result from the scheme of this
bill would probably grow out of the pro
visions contained in the sections which
relate to the manner of making nomina
tion of candidates for public office. The
county clerk is to print and distribute
ballots for all the candidates whose nom
inations (or rather certificates of nomina
tions) are filed in his office in the manner
specified in the bill, hence the extreme
importance of nominations. Only the
names of those nominated according to
the provisions of the bill can be printed
on the ballots.
"If this bill were passed what would
be the effect with reference to conven
tions of the principal political parlies?
Candidates who fail in obtaining romin
aliona are quite apt to think they are un
fairly beaten. Under the sting of defeat
they would call another convention and
have themselves nominated. Under the
present system they are not likely to bolt,
because the legitimate expenses of print
ing their ticket and conducting the can
vass WOULD BE TOO LARGE.
Under tbia bill they would run, be
cause the city or connty would pay their
election expenses; that is, print and dis
tribute their tickets. There could be no
discipline in either the republican or
democratic party, nor could there be any
"In the state of New York, at the last
election, the ballots for state officers to be
deposited in the box marked 'State' con
tained five names. Those to be deposit
ed in the boxes marked respectively 'Sen
ator and 'Assembly' contained each one
name; the ballots to be deposited in the
box marked , 'city and county contained
four names. - The ballots to be deposited
in the box marked 'Judiciary' contained
six names. Those to be deposited in the
boxes marked 'Alderman' and 'Justices'
contained each one name. Thus it will
be seen that every complete set of ballots
contained nineteen namea. Under the
above provisions of this bill these seveu
different ballots would each contain the
names of all the persons nominated for
the respective offices described in such
ballots. Suppose, under the operation oi
this bill, nominations were only made ItPt
the two great political parties the fe-l
publican and the democtatic. These bal
lots would contain thirty-tight names.
For the averacre voter sen enmin n
these when shut in onjfof these booths or
compartments, ajrJd mark with a cross
those for whofc he intended to vote, and
Piftfcraout seven different ballots, would
something of a task. Supposing there
were four sets or nominations by four
different political parties for the same of
flees on all these tickets. The voter
would be required to examine seventy six
names, cut suppose there were numer
ous nominations for the same office.
TAXE THE STATE TICKET
for example. Suppose there were three
or four, half a dozen, or a dozen different
nominations for secretary of state, comp
troller, state treasurer, attorney general
and state engineer. Suppose there were
aiso as many different nominations re
spectively for senators and assemblvmen
Suppose there were also as many nomi
nations for each of the offices designated
on the city and county tickets. Suppose
the same state of facts existed with ref
erence to the tickets to be deposited in
the boxes marked respectively 'Judiciary,'
Aiaerman- and 'Justice.' It would be
impossible within the time allowed by
this bill for voters to examine all these
names and make crosses against the
names of those for whom they desired to
vote, and fold up the ballots. Under the
operation of this bill a complete set of
ballots printed and distributed might
contain thousands of names. Even
though the elector might bring a memo
randa to enable him to select the names
of those for whom he desired to vote, it
would be impossible for him within the
time allowed to pick out those names
from the ballots furnished him by the in
spectors and designate them with

On Friday evening the Swedish Na
tional Ladies' Concert company will
give one of its classic entertainments at
Harper's theatre. The Cleveland Plain
Dealer comments thus:
Music Hall was almost entirely filled
with people last evening to hear the
Swedish ladies sing. It was an extreme
ly interesting and enjiyable concert.
The Swedish ladies are apparently quite
yonng girls, with very pleasant, fresh,
clear voices, combining among the
double quartet an immense range of tone.
Tbey are modest and unassuming in
their manners, singing with phenomenal
sweetness, smoothness, and precision,
and with a power of modulation that is
yery wonderful. Their numbers were
nearly all in their native tongue that
sounded very sweet to the ear. They
appeared in various native costumes,
which were yery charming, rich, and
unique. The audience was very en
thusiastic, encoring every number once,
and some twice, to which the singers re
sponded very amiably. Mr. Edmund T.
fhelan was a host in himself, and kept
the audience in unstrained merriment
whenever he appeared. His character
sketches were clever, and humorous in

Now, in view of what has been done in
mrhu; disease by the aid of mental influence,
'3ie public has a right to demand that our
"hysicians shall give us the benefit of this
healing agency. Mental influence is a pleas-
At and inexpensive medicine ; it cures in some
cases where drags fail, and it shortens the
1 arm of sickness and lightens its pain in many
e ther cases; furthermore, it has no injurious
dental effects. But the mind cure should
taken out of the hands of the untrained
I nd irresponsible visionaries and the impostors
who now practice it, or it will add a terrible

tlready caused. These enthusiasts, carried
sway by their seeming successes in a few
cases, insist that the mind cure is the only
treatment that is worth anything in all
diseases and for all persona They know too
1 ttle about the nature of disease to recognize
symptoms which indicate the fitness of this
agency, too little of science in general to re
alize that a means suitable to remove one
condition may be entirely inadequate or un

Evils of Hollow Teeth.
A hollow tooth is a permanent source of
btd and repulsive odor. In case there are
several of such teeth it is to be borne in mind
that it is by no means without injurious ef
ts' it on health, generally if food mixed dur
ing mastication with putrid and fetid secre
tions is constantly Introduced into the stom
ach, or if the air during inspiration always
paaes over such a focus of putrefaction.
Tt us we see that the rule founded on ex pe
ril nee, according to which a hollow tooth
has to be filled, or if this should be impossible,
ha to be extracted, is abundantly borne out
by reason. In view of the fact that, in our
days, a performance of this kind, so much
droaded in former times, is entirely painless
by application of cocaine, laughing gas or
cb. oroform, all dental operations have lost
thir terrors. Professor M. Hersohfeld.
Why He Was Interested.
Vbe Duke de Roclore, the favorite wit and
buloon of Louis XIV, was in his person far
frtm agreeable; his countenance was rather
forbidding, and his figure ill shaped. An
otter nobleman, whose figure was even in
ferior to that of Roclore, having killed his
antagonist in a duel, applied to the duke for
his interest and protection, knowing it was
the only channel through ,whieh he could
obtain a pardon. The duke readily engaged
in bis friend's interest, and fairly rallied the
km? Into a compliance. After the king bad
finished a fit of laugher, and given his royal
promise, he iuquired of Roclore what could
posdbly make him so strenuous in his intor
cca ion. "1 will tell your majesty," said the
factitious duke; "if he had suffered, I should
ha e been the ugliest man in France.'' San

For a good spring medicine we confidently
recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla. By its use
the blood is purified, enriched and vitalized,
that tired feeling Is entirely overcome and
the whole body given strength and Tiger.
The appetite is restored and sharpened, the
digestive organs are toned, the kidneys and
tlver invigorated. If yon have never tried
do so this season. It Is a thoronghly honest
and reliable preparation, purely vegetable,
and contains no Injurious ingredients what
ever. Thousands who have taken It with
benefit testify to Its peculiar enrative power.
"I take Rood's Sarsaparilla as a spring
tonic, and I recommend it to all who have
that miserable tired feeling." C. Fabmeler,

Hood's Sarsaparilla is prepared from Sarsa
parilla, Dandelion, Mandrake, Dock, Juniper
Berries, and other well known vegetable
remedies, by a combination, proportion and
process peculiar to Itself, and by which ths
full medicinal value of all the Ingredients
used is secured. Hence it possesses superior
and positive curative power.
" Every spring for years I have made It a
practice to take from three to five bottles of
Hood's Sarsaparilla, because I knowit purifies
the blood and thoroughly cleanses the system
of all impurities. That languid feeling, called
'spring fever,' will never visit the system that
has been properly cared for by this never
failing remedy." W. H. Lawisexce, Editor
