LATE ILLINOIS LAWS.
Those Passed by the Recent Legis
The Ennrtmiit t'roiidinx for Ila'lot
Kefji-m-A (.rneral Sumuixy
t f the Other l.tws.
The Thirty seventh general assembly of
Illioois has completed its labors and ad
journed. Xjw the question is, what did
that body do? It really did considerable.
The session just closed was cne of the
longest in the history of the state, owing
chiefly to the senatorial contest at the
first of it. After the legislature got down
to business it succeeded in accomplishing
some much needed good. And as a legis
lature is a kind of necessary evil that J
must be tolerated, the state is none the
worse off, all things considered, bv reason
of the one whose session has just ex
pired. As to the work accomplished, it
is seen that nearly every interest in the
state received some kind of legislation.
Undoubtedly the most far-reaching
measure enacted was the
AUSTRALIAN BALLOT BILL.
It provides that a candidate must re
ceive a regular nomination by a political
party which polled at least two per cent of
the entire vote at the last preceding election
or by nomination papers. In such a case
the certificates of nomination are duly au
thenticated and given to th officer whose
duty it is to print the ballots. Due provision
is made for independent candidates get
ting their names upon the ticket by the
nomination paper. The ballots are to be
printed on state and county elections by
tb? county clerk, and in the city elections
by the city clerk, and in the township
elections by the township clerk. In
Chicago the printing of thtm will be at
tended to by the board of election com
missioners, as special exception is made
in that cae. The names of a!l the
candidates of the different pnnits must
be placed upoa one bullot. Wry heavy
penalties are provided in cse the officer
whose duty it is to print the ballots is
guilty of any fraud or irregularity. Due
provision is made for voting for members
of the legislature. All the ballots arj
distributed by the officers whose duty it
is to print them, and a penalty is imposed
in case of any l ixity in distributing them.
No b-iliols can be obtaintd bv any one
excepi those which nre leyaliv jaicttd
and tear the signature of the proper offi
cer; and the ballots are given only to the
judge3 of elections, who ars compelled
under penalty to account for every bal
lot received from the officer who has
them printed, whether saved, voted, de
stroyed or mutilated: a complete chici is
kept upon all billots. The voter cai
only obtain his ticket after entering the
voting room and from tne proper offiier
under the law. This ballot he take and
retires to an apartment, which is in sigUt
of the jadges, and prepares it; returns
and pUces it in ihe hands of the judge,
who deposits it in the ballot box. At the
head of each list of candidates there will
be a party name or some other words to
designate the po!iticl party. The tick
et will be almost identical with the Indi
ana blanket ballot. The offi
cers wno have the ballots printed
will also have furnished full cards
of iustiuctioa to the voters, which will
give ttem ample information as to the
voting and the other requirements of the
lav. In each of the rooms in which the
election is held there will be furnished
Small bootbs or aDartments in, which the
voter uiu-t secretely and alone prepare
his ballot. No one can be in the room
where the voting takes place excep: three
or four persons who may be waiting their
turn to enter a voting booth. No elec
tioneering is allowdj within 100 feet of
the polls, and no person is allowed with
in that space. O ie voting booth will be
furnished to eich fifty voters if necessary,
so that there will be no crowding and no
one will be deprived of a vote. Dae care
is taken in the bill to provide for any per
son who is unable to real, so tht his
ticket muy be made out an 1 bU vote re
miin a srertt.
The bill provides that every person
shall be allowed two hours in which to
attend the election and vote, and no de
duclioo from his wages is to be made on
account of his a3bsence for that length of
time. The ballots will be preserved for
six months, carefully folded, and strung
upon a wire, which is tied and sealed.
The ballots will not be numbered, and it
is thought it will be impossible to ascer
tain bo an elector voted, even if the
ballots should be inspected by the county
or city clerk In the country the time
of opening the polls is changed to 7
o'clock, and the time of closing to 5
o'clock. The Chicago law in that re
spect remains as it now is. It is pro
vided in the bill that this law shall be
printed in at least two papers in each
county of the state, and it is thought the
people will eas ly become acquainted
with its provisions.
