THE LAW SIMPLIFIED.
Some of the Important Provisions
of Illinois Elections
A Koine or the Australia jjra'em
and Which llrd Above all
Statu be none.
As the time of the spring elections,
April 5. draws near, the discussion be
comes more interesting over the provis
ions of tbe new election law of Illinois.
Inquiry has been frequently made as to
the minntr in which caucuses must be
held in complittncs with the provisions,
and the fallowing resume from an Illi
nois exchange will be read with interest.
The first thing the candidate has to do
is to go before the people. One of two
ways must be adopted:
1st. The cindidate must receive the
nomination of a caucus representing a
political party that at the last general
election trecedinff polled at least 2 per
cent of the vote of the town. Or
2.1. He must be placed in the field by
"nomination papers" signed by a number
of voters equaling 5 per cent of the votes
cast in tbe town at the last preceding
Nomination by a convention or caucus
must be made in the regulir way, by a
caucus called accerdicg to the usages of
the party for wbich it is mide. A certifi
cate of nomination must be made out and
filed with tbe town clerk at least 15 davs
previous to the election. Tfie certificate
must be signed by tbe presiding cfflier
and the secretary of the caucus, who must
add to their signatures their places of
residence, and make oath to tbe truth of
Inthecise of "union" caucuses that
have no ticket at general election s, the
caucus can be held as usual if desired
and the "nomination paper" be used in
stead of tbe certificate of nomination.
This paper must also be filed with the
town clerk at least 13 das prior to the
All certificates and nomination papers
must specify the nsmes of candidates, the
office to wbich the candidate is nomi
nated, the political party or principles he
repnsente, expressed in cot more than
ne words, and his place of residence,
with street anJ number it any. It shou'd
be remembered that the forms suggested
have not been judicially pijsrd upoc.arjd
are merely suggestions.
If the candidate dtxs nnt live ia a v.!
lace, it is SLffl :ient in specifying his resi
dence to say merely "of said town." The
certificates all held if no ol jection is
m-de. If objections are made they are
decided by the board of town auditors.
Tbe board must give the parties notice
and decides by a msjirity vote.
The tfif.'Ct of all these preliminaries is
that tbe name ef the candidate will be
printed on the "official ballot" and he
may be said to be properly entered in tbe
race for official preferment.

The Frederick (Md) Daily Press con
tains tbe following notice of the death of
the mother cf W. B. Pettit of this city
who left Rock Island ia hopes of reach
ing the bedside of his mo'.her before her
death, but arrived too late:
Mrs. M. A. Pjttit died at 7 o'clock
yesterday morning in the 81st year of her
age after an illness of two months. The
deceased was a daughter of William M.
Beall, a former cashier of the Farmers'
and Mechanics' National bank and pres
ident of the Mutual Insurance coxpany.
Her bu$band, H. M. Pcltit, who died in
1847, was the superintending civil engi
neer in tbe construction of the B. fc O
railroad from Baltimore to Point of
Rocks, and was also prominently con
nected with the building of the national
r.ad from Cumberland to the west. Mrs.
Pettit has beea a resident of Frederic
since the death of her husband and fam
ily in 1847. Sie was bora in the ol i
colonial homestead which stood upon tiie
site now occupied by the city hall. Four
of her children, Mrs. Belle Matthews, of
this r.iij, Mrs Ha' tie P. Fioyd, of South
Carolina, Mrs. Lizzie P. Hunter, of
North Carolina, and Dr. Henry M. Pet
tit, of Missouri, were present at her bed
side at tbe time of ber death, and Wil
liam B. Pettit. of Illinois, will arrive to
Mrs. Pettit was a devoted member of
the Presbyterian church for nearly sixty
five years, and throughout this extended
period she constantly exemplified in
every relation of life the sublime teach
irgs of her adopted faith. It is not often
that a community is presented with the
record of a life so wholly spent in tne
practice of christian virtues and so beau
tified with the graces of christian charac
ter. The funeral will take place from
the residence, No. 75 East Second street,
at 3 o'clock p. m. tomorrow. Interment
at Mt. Olivet cemetery.
