,-'", .Enthusiastic Meeting: In Favor fiT the
A u*t rrtl i»n Svslem.
- A' well-attended meeting of the Ballot Re
. form League was held last night at Metro
■ politan Hall under the auspice:*, of the Fed
•. crated Trades and Single Tax Society. Tlie
proceedings were opened by 11. 1). Wagener,
..who rapped the meeting to order, and in
•'tTtrduced Allien Fuhrman, President of the
!'-: Federated Trades, as Chairman. Mr. Fulir
nian, after explaining tlie objects of the
.meeting, traced back the history of the
-. movement to its inception, thre** years ago,
.. and its growth in popularity since. lie
.claimed that the agitation had borne good
fruit, and that the league was now almost
• : oh ihe eve of accomplishing its purpose. He
• ; then introduced Hon. James G. Maguire,
whom he termed me father of ballet reform
. in' San Francis
(in coming forward the well-known ex-
Judge was received with great heartiness.
=' lie claimed that the greatest issue in tin*
campaign is ilie adoption of the Australian
ballot system., and in condemning the present
method was careful to point out by com
' parisons wherein the advantages lie with
.'the sj stem adopted by the Commonwealth of
Massachusetts. Since his first vote many
...years ago, the speaker said he had watched
. tiie methods ol machine politics, and in coo
" ience of what be observed be
. , became a constitutional kicker. He kicked
..'.against the Brady and Mannix faction, and
■ helped to drive them out of power only to
-.discover that their successors were as bent
. upou. evil deeds as they were. Consequently,
■ ..he as forced to the conclusion tbat even if the
■ bine was wrested >»'. this late day out of
V ""its. present hands il would fall Immediately
. into the possession of another just as vicious
*. gang. Mere changes of men mild effect nn
■good result, for the evil lay deeper and
•..could only be cured by the adoption of some
'• '.such radical measure as that offered bythe
. ■ Australian ballot system. v •»
•'■.'•" The speaker referred to the fact that now
.fit-was possible to hand a ballot to a voter
.■■ outside the 100-yard limit and to watch him
-~ so closely that he would be detected in the
*. -act;, if he tried to vote any other tban the
ballot given him. Consequently, ii is an
■ easy thing for. an employer to coerce an
: : employe at the oils, and for the briber to
_: 'iiiake sure of the delivery* of his go d.s. On
; ' the other hand, by the Australian plan, ab
.* solutely secrecy is secured, so that Intimi
dation cannot be practiced nor can the
. " briber effect his purposes, seeing that he bus
"' I- mean:, of ascertaining how the bribe-taker
. lias voted beyond that worthy's mere state
■"- l'iient. which he would be most unlikely to
. "lake lor granted.
He did not claim that the plan lie advo
••' • cated was itself a perfect one, but after a
' long period of practical usefulness in
•Australia it bad been surrounded with so
.'•runny safeguards fur the protection of the
."popular will that it is as nearly perfect as
."■'.l. ■.'man ingenuity can make it. Of course it
: will not prevent perjury nor the voting of
... ether" men's names, but it will make such
..•■•crimes so hazardous that the escape of the
'■ .criminal will be well-nigh impossible.
. Letters from the Governor of Massachu
setts and the Mayors of the leading cities
'.' in that State approving the new* ballot law
•' how. in force tbere were read to the meeting,
-.', after which the system was exemplified upon
:■ tlie stage by means of an improvised voting
■ booth. While voting was going on for this
purpose Judge Maguire was engaged in an
•". swering queues put by parties among the
audience, one of whom declared the system
Was a iailure in Butte, Mont., because voters
' pretended their inability to read or write,
'."• and the officers allowed to make the ballots
- out- for them were really engaged in buying
the votes which they were thus enabled to
'.. see deposited in the ballot-box. Upou this
-.. point the sneaker said he favored tlie ap
.' . puintnient of officers to assist the blind and
■ the illiterate, who should be taken from i
■'. each of the political parties interested, or
■ thai provision should be made allowing such
"' : persons to bring in friends of their own
■" choosing to perform the service lor them.
--. After the method had beeu thoroughly ex
plained Thomas V. Cator, candidate for
- .Congress from the Fourth District on the
_ ■."Regular" Democratic ticket, addressed the
meeting in support of the movement, and
: for. his vigorous English received the
'..' tamest applause of his audience. He was
-*'. complimented with three hearty cheers at

Auditor Slrollier and His Buncombe
The Board of Election Commissioners, at
its meeting yesterday, qualified a number of
applicants for clerkships on the precinct
boards of election in the Twenty-ninth, Thir
tieth, Thirty-first and Tbirty-secoud Assem
Auditor Strother, who was presiding, took
occasion to Inform the board thai the law
empowered the Registrar to fill the places
of all on the precinct boards who qualified
previous to the day of opening the boards;
and then, with a tremendous flourish, de
manded of the Registrar hew many such
vacancies he had filled. '-_.-
Mr. Smile] replied that it is the Board of
Commissioners that is neglecting its duty
and not lie. 'lhe law made it ihe duty of
thai board to appoint the precinct officers,
It bad neglected to do so, and he did not pro
pose to shoulder the responsibility.
The Auditor insisted that Mr. Smiley is
patting ft' this work so that, in the end. he
might hustle un whom he pleased and evade
tue law which requires all such oflicers to be
tax-payers. - - ■*'-'■"■
ally the Registrar, not caring to bandy
wonls with Strother any longer, informed
the board that so far as the I m referred to
him there are only ten such places to fill
and there are yet thirty days iv which to fill
ibem. bo far as the other appointments are
concerned, it is the place of the Republican
County Committee to furnish names, and he
would not assume the responsibilities of that
With still more bluster, but of another
kind, Strother demanded why the Republi
can committee had neglected its duty.
"Answer your own conundrums," was
the Registrar's reply.
On motion of Strother the Registrar was
ordered to furnisii as many names for elec
tion officers as possible at once.

of tne Thirty-ttiird District against locating

A man named Dougherty, chiefly conspic

plained to ihe board that a great many
errors of districting, impelling, etc., are beiug
made in the Registrar's office, that would
cause great contusion on election day und
deprive many citizens of iheir votes.
The Registrar shut him up in the same
manner that ne had slim up Strother, by In
forming him that there bad only been five
such mistakes made in the office, and three
oi these by Democratic clerks.

like Siebe did nut hanker after Geary street,

had made one of the best Judges who ever
occupied the bench iv Shu Francisco.
Several members opposed the resolution
on the ground that it was too late for the

matter was laid over until the next meeting

SUFFOCATED BY A CAT.
Strange Death or _ Five-Month Child in
While asleep on a couch little five-months
old Stefania Woyda was smothered by a
large black and gray cat. The child had
often played with the animal. John Woyda
of IW6 North lloyne avenue bad returned
from work about 7 o'clock and tossed the
pretty child up and down till he grew tired,
Th. n the mother carried It to an inner room,
and laid it on a couch, where it fell asleep
The cat disappeared at the same time, but
nothing was thought about it. The family
sat down to supper. An hour later tho
mother went to little Stefania and found the
cat lying over the child's face. She drove
it away and wrapped the child tenderly
with a coverlet. Returning again she found
that the cat had resumed Its former position
on her baby's face. She flung the cat down
the steps into the alley and took the child
into the bed-room. "My God, how cold she
is," was her horrified exclamation ns she
touched the baby's face. Dr. StrzyzowsM
was quickly summoned, but the child was
dead. No sign of a struggle was apparent
on its face. Its breathing had been stopped
by the warm body of the cat as it nestled on
the child's face.— Chicago Herald.."
