Apparently .o Uonbt as to the Illegal
ity or Tuesday's School Election.
The more the matter is discussed, and
the more incidents are brought to light in
connection with Tuesday's school election,
the more apparent becomes the fact that
the election waB illegal in more ways
than one. And the wider the range of
legal opinion on the subject, the stronger
appears to be the ground for arriving at
such conclusion. Added to the tct that
there is a question of grave doubt as to
the validity of the act entitling women to
vote at school elections, is the indisputa
ble evidence that even conceding the le
gality of this provision of the Illinois
statutes for the sake of the argument, the
letter of the law, whether constitutional
or not, under which woman suffrage was
taken advantage of, was violated, stipu
lates all women yoting under the law
shall "have been registered in the same
manner as is provided for in the reg
istration of male voters." It
is doubtful if a single woman
who voted Tuesday complied with
this formality, ant! failing to do this it is
mandatory under the interpretation of
the act under which they voted that the
same requirements applicable to male
voters be enforced, which are that citi
zens not registered shall have their votes
sworn in. If there was a woman's vole
sworn in Tuesday the Argus has not
heard of it, while in the central district
polling place the ballots were not even
numbered, leaving it impossible to de
termine by reference to tbe register
which votes were cast by legalized voters
and which were not. Under these cir
cumstances the least doubt seems to be
removed as to ihe illegality of the elec
me accumulation ot such tacts as
these sustain tbe theory that the election
should be contested. This should oe
done, not that any particular candidate
should be seated, but that rij.ht should
be established. There is a great princi
pie at Btake, and it is to the interests of
the schools, to the interests of all can
didates, to the interests of all our people
that the law in its correct interpretation
be understood in its application to school
