election is no patriot and no Demo

Tbs club r?tis we havs now are old

. Our -politic* have been running
along ta a Jog-trot, peaceful, way, end
dead men's names sre on the . club
lists, absentees1 who have moved away
ate on the club Uste^ and the names
of men whom' nobody ever knew or
. ? saw and. cannot tined ?re on tbs club
lists. This ts a fruitful source of
K '. fraud, and'our first effort shonid be
1 to get an absolutely new enrollment of
the Democrats wno are entitled to
vote under the rules of the party,
?g Por relisons that are apparen t to an y

govern on tbe day Of the primary elec
tion. No man should be allowed to
vote whose name has not been enroll
ed tn accordance with the above reg
ulations.'
if tin money can be had, it would be
he Wet! to have the club rolls publish
ed in- some one county paper twenty
days before the primary; but as I fear
this may be considered too expensive,
the- filing of one of them with thc
clerks of court end the county chair
mad is sufficient in my judgment.
-Tire,-voters, when they enroll, should
State the place of residence giving the
street and number of the house, if
they live In a town, or the township
when7 residing in the country.
The club.roll should be made up of
men from two townships or two wards
bu t each 'aub-dlvlslon. of-a county or
city should have one club and no more.
The residents of teat .political sub
division could then d-;*e.-mine whether
any. fraud has been ??ractic ed in tbe
enrollment or not.
This regulation will compel me to
go six miles to vole in tbe primary,
although there is at pussent a voting
precinct'within half a mite of my
home. But no inconvenience can be

.Too Free and E**y.
The promiscuous enrollment such ss
we have always had, the free and easy
way in which we have conducted our
political affairs, will not do now that
white men have grown so suspicious
and unsuspicious. The honors and
emoluments of office are so great that
inevitably human selfishness and
greed will cause men to act the rascal.
,'. On .the day of tbe election, no man
not enrolled according to these rules
should be stamped and the' voter's
name-checked off 'the club list, show
