BALLOT KfcFORM BILL.
Hraater Hhuaawny, a Drmarrat. lw
t red area a Meaner la Amrtil the
Last Thursday io the slate senate, Mr.
Sbumway Introduced an Australian ballot
bill, which was a surprise to democrats
and republicans alike. The senator,
though he bail been in Springfield a week,
did not mention his pet measure to any
body and the democrats in the house who
hare been arranging to introduce similar
bills of their own are in a quandary.
Senator Shumway has been a close stud
ent of the subject and has been In corres
pondence with state authorities and mem
bers of the legUlttures In Indiana, Wis
conslon. New York, Massachusetts and
other states, where the system has been
adoptel. He thinks he baa secured the
very best bill that could be devised on
the subject. To a correspondent of the
Chicago Herald Mr. Sbnraway said:
"The provisions of the bill are similar
to those contained in the present New
York law. The tickets are to be printed
in the various counties at county expense
for all county and state elections."
"What kind of tickets does your bill
"Kacu p irty entitled by the provisions
of the bill to name candidates is entitled
to have a ticket cont lining the names of
fifteen legally nominated candidates. All
the tickets are to be exactly alike in form
and In toe way of display type, same
quality of paper, amm- size, black ink and
same variety of type."
"Then tbe tickets do not contain the
names of all the candidates to be voted
for at that election?"
"No; encb party's ticket rontains the
namtsof its own candidates. Voting
booths are provided for by the hill, into
which one voter at a time is permitted to
enter. After which lie is handed tickets,
conalstiiti? of one of each party. The
voter after makinu his selection folds tbe
other tickets as prescribed by the act in a
certain manner and returns Ihero to tbe
ballot clerks, who deporit thi m In a box
prepared to receive the unvoteil ballots.
The voter then folds the ticket retained
exactly as the others were folded, and.
handing it to the election judges, an
nounces bis name, residence and desire
to vote. The voter Is not compelled to
mark his ticket to designate bis choice of
candidates, lie makes no crosses or
other marks, but he may erase any name
on the t cket retained by him and subiti
tute another, or he may put on a paster
containing one yr more names, or cover
tbe entire ticket with a paster, providing
be can do it so that tbe pasted ticket
cannot be distinguished as such after be
"How arc the voters instructed in re
(fsrd to voting? '
"The bill amply provides for that by
rrquiriug cards of instruction to be
placed about the pillinir places and
priuted In the newspapers."
"Do you propose to regulate nomina
tions by jour bill?"
"Yes, and in a manner that will be sat
isfactory to parties and persons. Tbe hill
also provide for informing the voters who
tbe candidates are. The vo-ing under its
provisions will he entirely secret. It will
be impossible to ascertain how a man
votes, as this bill d es not require the
stub to be numbered, as does the New
"What advantage do you claim for
the system proposed by your bill? '
"Absolute secrecy of the ballot. Free
dom from bribery and electioneeiing an
noyances. lnexpensivencis to the can
didates, as tbey will have do election ex
penses to hear, no workers to hire. The
general purification of the ballot."
"Did not yoii introduce a bill of this
"" he last general assembly?"
lioce that time have I have
I hallot reform laws in the
;and there are quite a num-
. ui uiero. I have taken tbe good
thinps from all of tbem ami left out tbe
objectionable features, and I believe that
this bill will meet with tbe approval of
everybody who wants to see a reform in
this direction. Good men of all parties
want a law that will forever stop the cor
rupt practices that now prevail at the bal
lot box. This is the people's measure
and not a political scheme. The farmers,
tbe democrats, republicans. prohibitionists
everybody; are demanding something in
this direction, and this universal demand
prompted me to take up this matter as
one of the people aud not as a politician.

kind will surely be passed at this session

disaster. Parnell addressed an assem
blage oi! 20.000 people, and met with an
enthusiwtio reception. He took the
ground that Gladstone had caused the
present trouble by Issuing his mandatory
letter domnnding that tho Irish members
depose their leader. Referring to Glad

Parnell said he could now confirm tbe

premier of Cape Colony, an adhereut of

that Gl wlstone aud his colleagues had
been considering fully the question of tho
retention of the Irish members, aud that
Gladstone had told him that tbe reteution
of thirty-three members in the imperial
parliament was dually considered best fin-
all purpwes. l'aruell read the letter,
proving i bat the statement which be sent
to Khodes corrvsponded with the assertion
iu the n anifusto issued by Parnell and
which i adstone contradicted. Parnell
proceeded to aay that Gladstone had
pointed t certain of his own public declar
ations as- disproving Parnell's version of
the mter-iew; but it was difficult to make
anything out of those declarations.

Gladsu ue possessed a marvelous faculty
of placiu i a ilifferent interpretation upon
auy slatimeiit of his than that placed
upon it by ins opponents. O'Brien, to
whom hi had communicated an outline
of the 11 a warden conversation, had a
memory f it exactly identical with that

Many of t iem must uov wish that they

A Itefi renee to the Negotiations.
He could not forecast the result of the
present negotiations without a breach of
conlidence. Hut he thought that O'Brien
would not object to his saying that so
far the neg itiatinns had resulted in agree

future step, would have to tie taken by
oiner men. upon whom a very great
responsibility would result if O'Brien he

Texas, iu a speech iu the house iruturday
endorsing the anny appropriation as re
ported from the committee, spoke In highly
eulogistic terms of the bravery and sense
of duty of the Union soldiers, and said
their influence would Kwecp away the last
vestige of obstacle to fraternalism. The
south knew no other flag than that which
hung over the speaker's head, nnd they
served no other country than this great
country. The people of the south were
sincere in every profession of lovaltv. and
they would ever bo ready to testify to their

Implied that the desire ot the people to

tionalism. Keferring to a remark made
by ljtnham that such statesmen as Vest,
Jliitler ami Morgan could not lie men-
tioued as candidates for the presidency or
vice presiuenry, merely liccause they
were southern men, Kerr commended
that remark to gentlemen on the other

it was not a fact that a record Of service
iu the I uion army effectually barred ev
ery man living in slates lately in re
bellion from laiug elected to any office of

Controverted by the ltrmorrata.
Kerr said that be did not know whether
that was 1 rue or not, but it was an un
fortunate fact that in the list ot members
elected from the southern states there did
not appear a man who had served in the
L moil army. Several IK-mocrats were Im
mediately upon their feet with a refuta
tion of this statemeut. Kerr said that he
referred to the present house, and par
ticularly to the state of Missouri as refus

Dlaine has opened up a correajxiudence
with the Spanish government through
the minister resident here in regard to
the alleged indignities offered the Ameri
can missionaries i the Island of Ponapi,
in the Caroline group, by Spauish soldiers.
The basis upon which correspondence is
now going on is a demand by the Ameri

Methodist church for reparation for in
dignities heaped upon their missionaries
and for property destroyed.

Capt. Taylor, of the Alliance, which has
recently returned from the Caroline isl

Tracy, confirms in all important details
the treatment alleged to have been im
posed upon the missionaries. Tbe matter
causes some feeling in both stale and

the church nnd residences of the mission
