A dispatch trom Streator tays: "To
ward the commencement of the present
campaign ihe republic n miners met in
convection and indorsed the candidacy
of Got. F?er. Last week the state was
flooded with resolutions passed. Now
the reaction has set in. Republican
miners criticise severely the action of the
republicans in using them as political
capital acd in some cases are bolting the
state ticket. The editor of a local pa
per is in receipt of an autograph letter
from several such republicans saying they
will work for Alteeid."
As was anticipated, the dedicatory ex
erciees in connection with the World's
Fair opening at Chicago last week was
attended by a fluency of eloquence and
patriotism tuch as is seldom given ex
pression to on a single occasion. The
orations of Henry Watterson and Cbaun
eey M- Depew were of course, master,
pieces of oratory and thought, yet not ex
celling, however, in beauty of sent m nt
the lees pretentious efforts of Mayor
Wasbbutnsnd D. rector-General Davis,
Both of which were j -wels in that line.
Monday evening Hon. Truman Plan's,
democratic candidate for congress, ad
dressed the people here. The gentleman
has won many laurels by his speeches
made over this district, and his address
here enriched the store. For an hour
and three-quarters in that plesing, im
pressive manner so natural to him, he ex
posed the fallacies of republican protec
tion, and if there was any one halting
between two opinions, were minds made
up in the right direction before the close
of his address. He was given the most
marked attention, and republicans pres
ent spoke highly of bis address. It was
entirely free from personal abuse of bis
opponents. Henderson County Demo
Truman Plantz democratic candidate
for congress, is makiDg some of the best

He is a man that makes friends every
where. He should be elected for the
best interests of our common people.

In every state where an election has
been held under the Australian ballot
law the Democrats have made gains.
There are two reasons for this. First,
the Republicans have not the same op
portunities as ander the old law for
vslng money corruptly; and second, be
cause the majority of the ignorant voters
being in the Republican party their
-losses through the inability of their
voters to mark the ticket correctly are
greater. The party leaders are cursing
the law and demanding- its repeal. In
Illinois Republicans think the law will
lose them votes, and some of them boldly
announce that if they get control of the
legislature they will make short work of
It. This is an admission that they can
win only by corrupt methods.

HOW TO VOTE.
The Australian Ballot and How
to Mark it.
INSTETJCTIONS TO THE VOTERS.
What Should he Carefully Read by All
Voters Before Golna to the Polls The
Beat Plan Is to Observe the First Method
Outlined and Ballot the Straight Party
In view of the approaching election all
citizens should thoroughly acquaint them
selves with the provisions of the Austra
lian ballot system, a summary of which
is herewith submitted for the instruction
of the voters:
HOW TO MARK THS BALLOT.
The voter should understand that
under the law no one has a right to in
terrupt him or electioneer with him
within one hundred (100) feet of the
polls. Nor has any one a right to see
his ballot, or attempt to discover how it
is marked. He has no right to show the
marking oa his ballot even to an election
The voter should enter the voting
place and announce his name and. if re
quired, his place of residence. If he is
entitled to vote at that poll, he will he
invited inside the guard rail, and one of
the judges will hand him a ballot. I7o
will immediAtelr enter one of tbe booths
and proceed to mark his ballot. He wU
rind on his ballot as many columns of
names as there are political parties in
the field, each one headod by the party
name. To the left of each party name
be will find a circle, while to the lett of
each candidates name lie wiil find
square. Tbene cir. If s and squares are to
contain the cross (X) by which lie indi
cates his desire to vote for the candidate
of Lis choice. Remember that erasing
a name is of no effect. Remember that
it is the cross (X). placed in the proper
place, that counts as a vote; nothinic ml
a cro-8 (X) should be ued, no oilier
mark, or scratching out of name, wid
There are several methods of marking
the ballot provided hy law, either
directly or incidentally. Taking uj
thefe methods of marking in their order,
FIRST METHOD VOTING THK STRAIGHT
In order to do tnir. n ake a crfus (X)
mark in the circle to the ietl of the head
of the party ticket you desire to support.
If the cross appears to the left of the
word Democratic at the head of the
column, this cross indicates that the
voter desires to vote the straight Demo
cratic ticket, and his vote will be so
counted. If you desire to vote the
straight Republican ticket, you should
place the croes in the circle to the left of
the word Republican at the head of the
ticket, and your vote will be m counted.
The straight Prohibition or other ticket
is, of course, voted in the same manner,
that is, by placing a cross in the circle
to the left of the appellation of the
ticket you desire to vote. Make no other
mark on the ballot under this method.
Voting the straight party ticket with
the exception of one or more candidates
running for office to which one person
is to be elected. For instance, we will
suppose you wish to vote the straight
Republican ticket with the exception
that you desire to vote for the Demo
cratic candidate for secretary of state,
and the Prohibition candidate for
auditor. Place a cross (X) in the circle
to the left of the word Republican at the
top of the ballot, as if you were going
to vote the straight ticket, then place a
cross in the square to the left of the
name William H. Hinrichsen in the
Democratic column and a cross in the
square to the left of the name Samuel
D. Noe in the Prohibition column.
Make no other marks on the ticket and
it will be counted for all of the Repub
lican candidates except those for secre
tary of state and auditor, and for these
offices it will be counted for the candi
dates on the other tickets opposite whose
names you have placed crosses.
Voting the straight ticket with the ex
ception oi one or more candidates run
ning for offices to which two or more
persons are to be elected, as presidential
electors, congressmen at large, trustees
of the Illinois university, member of the
house of representatives, etc. This is
accomplished as follows:
Make no mars, in the circles at thb
top of THS ballot, out piace a cross in
the square to the left of the name of
every candidate you wish to vote for, no
matter on which ticket his name ajears.
Suppose you wish to vote all the Repub
lican ticket, except that you projxj.se to
vote for Black instead of Willets for con
gressman at large, Raymond instead of
Cobb for trustee of the Illinois Univer
sity, and McXeely instead of Lyon for
presidential elector. You place a cross
opposite the name of every Republican
candidate you propose to vote for, being
careful not to miss any of the presiden
tial electors; then place a crois opposite
the name of each Democratic candidate
you propose to vote for, viz.: Black,
Raymond and McNeely.
Voting the straight ticket with the ex
ception of one or more candidates w hse
opponents you do not want to vote for.
That is, not voting for any of the candi
dates running for one or more of the
offices. For instance, suppose you pro
pose to vote the straight Democratic
ticket with the exception of the candi
date for treasurer. The simplest way to
do this is to make a cross in the Demo
cratic circle, and then make crosses
opposite the names of both the Repub
lican and Prohibition candidates for
treasurer. You liave voted for two
candidates for treasurer, and under the
law your vote for the candidate for that
office will not be counted, while the
cross in the circle at the head of the
ticket carries the remainder of the
The law provides another method of
voting, in addition to those given, but I
have not included it among the others
from the fact that there is some doubt
as to its application. Section 23 of the
election law says: "The voter shall pre
pare his ballot by , or by writing
in the name of the candidate of his
choice in a blank sjvace on said ticket,
making a cross opposite thereto. It
would appear from this reading that the
voter may vote for any person whomso
ever for any office by writing his name
in a blank t-pace on the ballot and plac
ing a cross opposite thereto, but if is
claimed by good lawyers that the word
candidate as used here means some one
regularly nominated by convention or
petition, as provided for by law, and
that the votes cast for persons other
than regularly nominated candidates
should not be counted.
I am of the opinion that the courts
will decide that a man cannot ie com
pelled to vote for the nominee of some
political party and that a name written
in the proper place with a crs opposite
thereto should be counted, but until the
courts so decide it is hazardous to vote
after this method. TI.e legislature in
making this provision of the law may
have had the following condition of
things in mind: Suppose the Prohibition
party failed to nominate a candidate for
state senator, this would leave a blank
space on the ticket to be filled by the
voters from amcng the candidates nom
inated by the other parties. This is the
blank space referred to and these are
the candidates referred to in the law.
No other blank space is provided by law
in the printing of the ballots and the
word candidate wherever used refers to
one regularly nominated by convention
VOTING FOR MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF
If you wish to vote for members of
the legislature so as to give one of them
more or less votes than indicated by the
printed ticket, you proceed as follows:
If your party has nominated two candi
dates, and you wish to give one of them
two votes and the other one vote,
you place a cross in the circle at the
head of your ballot as if voting straight,
and then make the figures 1 and 2 to the
right of the legislative candidate re
spectively, substituting these figures for
the figures printed on the ticket, if any
tje so printed.
If your party has nominated two can
didates and you desire to give all three
of your votes to one of them, you make
no cross in the circle, tut put a cross in
the square to the left of each name on
your ticket, except the candidate for
whom you do not wish to vote; then to
the right of the name of the legislative
candidate you wish to vote for write the
figure 3, erasing the figures 1 1-2, if they
If you wish to give one or more of
your votes to a candidate or .representa
tive on another ticket, make no cross in
the circle at the head of your t icket, but
place a cross opjiosite the name of every
candidate you wish to vote for, and in
dicate the number of votes you desire to
give to eacn legislative candidate Oy a
figure to the right I ins name.
