CAN NOT VOTE.
Women Not Entitled to Vote at
the Coming Election.
INTERPRETATION OF THE LAW.
It Does Not Provide For Ticket For Vnl
Terslty Trustee Conditions Under
Which the Indies May Exercise tbe Right
Cip'ain J M. Adair, of tbe secretarj
of state's office, at Sprinafleld. in speak
ing of the registration of women baying
been permitted by tbe judges of election
in some localities with tbe expectation of
voting for trustees of the university at
the next election, said: "lean not un
derstand bow tbe impression got abroad
that women would be entitled to vote for
trustees of tbe uuiversity at the election
on Nov.. 8 The office of trustees of tbe
university is not one of tbe offices ex empted
by the first section of tbe Aus
tralian ballot law from the operation of
that law, and for all offices not ex
empted tbere can be but one bal
lot, and women can not vote that
ballot. No separate ballot can be
printed aDd cast for any office to be filled
Nov. 8, 1892, on the general ballot. The
law authorizing women to vote for
school officers specially provides that
the ballot Cast by women shall be a sep
arate ballot on which 'he nami s of school
offlctrs shall appear none other, and
that it shall be deposited in a separate
box. The Australian law of 1891 is the
latest law on the statute bock on the
subject of eli'ctions. and rf-penla all other
laws in conflict I notice that in some
localities women have beeD permitted to
reenter, with tbe expectation of bting
permitted to vote; but they will be disap
pointed if they expect to vote for trus
tees of the university, for there is no au
thority of law for printing such ballots,
and the judges of election can not accept
any but official ballots, on which appears
the office of trustee of the university.
"Women can vote for trustees of schools.
school directors, h nd members of boards
of education where any of these school
officers are to be elected at the next elec
tion, but to none other, and the judges
of election may accept the b-ht for
such local school c ffloers of such women
as are entitled to register and vote under
the provision of the law entitling women
to vote at any election held for the pur
pose of choosing school officers "
COWDEN AND COLLINS.
A Challenge for the Rock Island Sprinter
from Billy Gibson The Conditions.
HotSfrngs Ark., Oct. 16 Editob
Argus: I see through your valuable pa
per that Jack Cowden, Rock Island's
famous sprinter, has made a race with
one Harry Hill, and 1 also see that be
bas many frien-'s who will back him
against Jim Collins. Let me say just a
few words: The quicker tbev start, put
ting up their money the quicker they cn
have the race. Here are my terms: Seven
hundred Tarda pistol phot Start; Shef-
fi Id rules to govern; 120 yards I will
allow one yard start; 150 yards, three
yards start; 300yar1s, six yards start;
440 yards. 10 yards start, for $250 to
S300 a side.
Now. as fsr as Cowdea's ability as a
champion is concerned, I know of a half
dozen runners who would like a match
with Cowden; such class men as Camp
bell and Copplc. and to be sure to name
enough men tor mm to pick Irom, 1
will say that I will match a
new man who never ran s
half dozen races in bis life.
against bim 120 yards for f 250 or $300 a
side. I will further state that my new man
shall give h m eight yards start in 440
yards. Any time uowaen mases nis win
ir.gness to run known by placing a for
feit for either or one nail a aoz n matrn
es I will promptly cover it. It is gener
ally understood that champions concede
sterns, but here is a champion I will give
a start to. If it is as easy for the Hock
Island sports to win money in reality as
through news papertalk they will at once
acceDt this challenge.
As Collins will soon be in New York
with a view of getting on a match with
some of the eastern cracks, we will allow
ex lenses to Cowden to run in New York.
