New York is about the only American

Now, regarding the ballot ,
This term la French, cominir from the
word ballotte. Some think that the
ballot, or the word ballot, at least, came
IN THE RKPOKMED BALLOT BOOTH.
from ballet, bnt such, it seems to me,
could not have been the case, espe
cially the secret ballot
The ancient Greeks selected their
magistrates or decided political ques
tions by ecret vote, for which purpose
they nsed different colored beans. At
one time they nsed only the pole beans
Hence the term, from the Greek, "going
to the polls." It was one of the most
interesting and thrilling sights, we are
told, to see the Greek on election day
selecting his ballot from the bean bag
before casting it
In the selection of candidates certain
colored beans were chosen by the prima
ries to correspond with the candidates
they were to represent Sometimes a
packed primary would decide on a style
of bean to be cast for an unpopular can
didate, knowing that the last quart of
that brand of bean had been eaten at
breakfast the previous Sundav. Had
that happened here a style of vulcanized
rubber lean of the same general appear
ance wonld have been made in the night
The Greek origin of Boston is established
by the history of the ballot, I think.
At Athena the dicasts whatever that
may be nsed in giving their verdicts
balls of stone called psephi, or of metal
called Rponduli. whence comes the term
8pondnlix or money, which has also been
associated more or less with the ballot
throughout the history of the world.
Those pierced iu the center or black in
color signified condemnation, and
though this, of course, was hardly politi
cal balloting it soon led to it.
Petalism, which waa so popular in
Syracuse at an early day, a term which
baa nothing to do whatever with pessi
mism, was a system of voting by words
written npon the leaves of the olive. By
using the plain leaf the voter signified
"1 give you leave, but bv making cer
tain other Greek characters on the ballot
it meant "Leave the office alone." Or it
might be marked so as to mean "We
Deleave not in you."
The Romans first monkeyed with the
divine right of suffrage in the year 139
B. C, using wooden tabellse placed in
the cista a sort of basket or wicker
box. These were marked U. R. (uti
rogas) or A. (antiquo) in the case of a
proposed law, and L. dibro) or D. (dam
no) in the case of a public trial. The
Roman custom of using the word damno
npon casting the ballot has given rise to
the custom by which poutics and profan
ity are still seen so often going hand in
hand down to a drunkard's grave, to
see if he is in it, and, if not, with the
idea of utilizing it themselves.
I have an idea that the Australian
ballot was also used in Rome at least a
cwtory lieore f be birth of Christ, for it
'x fact that at that period the wooden
tables used as ballots contained the
names of both the candidates, and bad
puncta or holes opposite the name nsed
or voted for.
In Great Britain the ballot was first
nsed in 1602 by the Scots parliament in
proceedings in the "Billeting act," which
was a measure for ostracising and other
wise disfiguring a few political oppo
nents. Each member of parliament wrote
in a disguised hand on a piece of paper
the names of twelve people whom be
didn't like and whom be would be glad
to ostracise, or at least help hold while
some one else did it
These names were put in a bag, which
was at once sealed np and sent to the
exchequer chamber. The king repudi
ated this act, however, in 1700. At the
present time voting is done in Great
Britain a good deal the same as it will
be done in this state hereafter. A cross
is made after the name of the candidate
who is voted for, the names being in al
phabetical order on the ballot Each
voter has a chance to go and commune
with himself while thinking who he will
vote for. For this purpose be has a little
booth, to which he can secretly retire
along with his numbered or stamped bal
lot, and unless his thoughts are highly
vociferous they cannot be heard outside
the booth, or, if heard, they will be so
indistinct that the law is really com
plied with in spirit at least
Australia has a good method, which is
called the Kangaroo method, and has
worked so well that canvassing for votes
has practically disappeared there, and
sheep stealing is on the decrease. You
are of course familiar with this method
more or less, Thorndyke, and so I need
not go into detail, bnt the principle is
there as well as here, that even if you
bny a voter yon can never feel sure that
he will not lie replevied by some one else.
A man who will sell his vote will also
lie, or leave his honor in the Grand Cen
tral depot; therefore you can never feel
sure of a vote unless after buying it you
see that it is deposited and counted,
or counted at least This method will
insure secrecy, and also give the voter
while in the booth a chance to think over
his past life. If permissible, thrilling
mottoes in red yarn could be hung np in
these liooths, asking the voter if he has
nsed Blair's soap, and also bidding him
good morning in a bright and chipper
Some murmuring is being done here,
of course, regarding the great expense
tho city will bo at or to in order to fit
up ballots and little retiring rooms or
considering places, but if we are doing
right we must not pause to reckon np
The estimated cost of our fall election
here is $404,743. and there is a great deal
of complaint over this, especially by
those who do not see any immediate
prospect of getting some of it The
money will go almost directly to the
paper man, the printer and the carpenter,
at least as near as you can make a half
trillion dollars go in New York to the
man it was destined for. Naturally
some of it will stick to those whose ad
hesive palms are extended especially in
the fall of the year: but I am betting on
the beauties of this ballot, and now if
the good men who bathe will also ballot
there will be a great light dawn on the
future, and its rosy rays will even stab
their little ruddy promises into the dark
and noisome pestilential political pres
ent "Some day," as 1 heard a bright young
voicd singing not long ago, "some day 1
know not when the day xuay be," the
time will come, Thorndyke,- when
elections will grow wider and wider
apart , One election will do for as mnch
as two or three years, and the campaign
expenses may be saved np and used for
flour and bacon and soap and pure air;
when the liar and the lamb shall lie down

Rock Islard. 111.. Oct. 24 I fully
coincide with the views expressed by "A

wherein Gesl is condemned for - turning
bis back upon his naif brother and an eld
soldier at the liist moment ia making a
federal appointment that he might stlect
for the piace a man named Bostock.
whose only quslincatioo for the place was
his boast a false one at that that he
controlled the labor vote of Rock Island.
Gest s treachery in this esse is the more
aggravating when it is understood that
the man whom he sacrificed bis honor for
was twenty years in this country before
be took out bis naturalization papers, and
that he had not been three yeara a citizen
when Gest appointed him to one of
the most important political posi
tions within bia gift. Now I am
a friend ot Bostock and have no purpose
to attack bim otber than to criticise his
disloyalty to tbe country that for twenty
years gave him bis. living, before thinking
enough of it to swear allegiance to its
banner, but I do most emphatically de
nounce the cunning and unprincipled tac
tics of Gest in appointing Bostock to of
fice merely to hoodwink the ltbor vote
and to attempt to secure it in helping him
get back to congress.
Bostock waa asked at one time why he
did cot become an American citizen and
be replied that when be left Eoelaod he
promised his father that as long as he j
lived he would not renounce nlleeiance to
theCJ ieen. After that Bosi-nk's father
died and he was asked if he was not go
ing to take out bis papers. To Ibis be
replied that bis father having di d bo was
no longer bolden to his promise to bim,
but be could see no reason why be should
become so American, tbat be was get
ting along all nyht as it was making a
good living and having a good time arid

After that be was agtiia apprt arhed on
the "object, and lbe argument being pre
sen'ed t bim that he being a fairly good
speaker might get a political position if
he would heroine Americanized. This
seemed to strike Bostock favorably, and
heiug somewhat an admirer of his own

idea a ko id on e. He at once took nut

Reynolds. 111., Oil- 22. A few days
ago we accidentally saw a copy of a slimy
circular gotten up by Jo Haas or some
otber republican ring leader and circu
lated in a secret and unprincipalled man
ner aiming to set forth mean and unde
sirable qualities of the next congressman
of this district, etc. We have our little
town of Reynolds quietly flooded with
tbem. Tbey have been left in evtry re
publican store and peanut stand in the
village, and if a person asks where did
these things come from "I do not know"
is tbe usual answer. "Some one left
them here on tbe sly," and it has been tbe
wonder of nearly all lbe inhabitants of
the vill-tge who it was tbat would stoop
so low as to distribute such a lying, slimy,
slanderous piece of trash. It was sup
posed first tbat it was doDe by some sneak
thief sent out from tbe Union office to do
this dirty work, as there are always hood
lums in dies tbat can be hired to do al
most anything (country people are sup
posed to be more timid io rascality)
But lo and behold it has beeu learned
upon investigation tbat it was
done by one of our own citizens
and one that carries quite a bigb head. A
defeated cf&ce-eekcr himself, and de
feated, he says, by a very ignorant man,
and he would not have felt half so bad
about it if it had been an intelligent man,
etc., and this dignified individual and of
fice seeker was invited to a little party
a birthday patty of a brother Woodman's,
and a lot of those infamous circulars
were dropped about the bouse and yard,
very slyly, of course, but one good repub
lican man hapened to see it done, and
said il was too low, and he would vote
for Cable. That circular has made one
vole for Cable, at least in Reynolds, if
not more, and this morning we are all
giving cheers for our next congressman.
