How the Suiton Bill Disfranchise
A valued correspondent In Union Springs
propounds the following query
There I allttlo controversy herein regard I hll
reform I lay that a man wbo cannot rat his ballot
cannot vote The other man says that ballot reform
does not dlslrsnchtse any one Will you be kind bOUKb
to Itt me know through Toe bON which of ul Is I right
LoS also In what way It would dlstranchlM th man
who cannot read his ballot r I
Wo answer our correspondent when wo
tell him that under tho present law of this
State the only condition placed upon man
hood suffrage of qualified electors Is the
net of bringing tho ballot or ballots to
tho ofllclal polling place and that the
bogus ballot reformers propose to sup
plement this by an educational test so that
Instead of bringing his ballots the voter
must In 1 given 1lao and In I given time
read mark and prepare them as the State
arbitrarily decrees I ho bo nn unlettered
man and Is I from such circumstance unable
to do this then tho State absolutely and un
conditionally takes his vote away from him
and prevents him from casting It The al
ternative offered Is I that a ballot may bo cast
on his account by a sworn public oflicer
who Is to voto for him Ostensibly the
sworn public oflleor Is to mark the ticket R
the unlettered man directs but as tho latter
cannot rod the ticket ho cannot know In
what way tho sworn officer marks It and
consequently ho la helpless for redress On
the subject of those sworn public officers
LEON AnnE Democratic Governor of New
Jersey sold In biB recent message to the
Legislature of tho State
The employment of tries offlcen seems to be danger
ons and Improper The fact that tbeie election officers
were sworn officials would no more prevent them If die
honest from destroying the secrecy of the ballot or
practically InUmldallng a voter by their knowledge of
his ballot than would the official oath f a dlsucnest
election orticer prevent him from tampering with the
ballot box o knowingly receiving fraudulent votes
Thsiie election officers would become the political
11 of the different parties and every voter who ac
cepted their Intervention would feel that there was no
secrecy aa to hla allot and that such election ofllcers
might expose to others how h bad exercised the right
of suffrage
Wo can add to this for tho guidance and
Instruction of our Inquiring friend that I the
socalled ballot reform law did not disfran
chise and was not Intended to disfranchise
thousands of honest but unlettered men
worklngmen toilers and poor men gener
ally It would not bo favored and supported
as It Is by tho believers In 0 twi ntyone
years test of citizenship by tho property
qualification reformers with Mr SIMON
STERN at their head by thin native Ameri
can KnowNothings who wish to restrict the
holding uf all olllcoa to thoso whoso grand
fathers wore born in the United States by
the Union League Club by the Mugwumps
and by tho lawn tennis politicians generally
ally That It disfranchises la the reason why
they are In favor of tho measure aDd why
the Democratic party Is dead against It
Our friend speaks of those citizens who
cannot read as those who me to b dis
franchised liy this term he evidently
means those who have been deprived of the
benefits of a tudlmcntal education and
thoso whose vision Is Impaired In
great Democratic communities like New I
York city the disfranchising effects of tho
bogus ballot bill would extend much further
Thousands of men of thrift and Intelligence
who may bo ablo to read a ballot perfectly
might not bo ohIo 30 to mark It within the
shadow of u hon > i > stall ns to conform to the
condition of tim law and they would thus
dlsfranchNw thains lvpa Thousands of vot
ers In the city of New York though well edu
cated are not accustomed to use Kngllbh In
dally family intercourse The State hal
naturalized such mon nnd most of thoni
make excellent citizens but tho bogus ballot
reformers would do away with their I
light to voto imilnrutnndlngly Thousands
of workliigmcn inaptly Democrats would
from stress of time not bo ablo to delay In
horHO stalls at their accustomed hour of go
ing to work In the districts of this city In
habited by laboring len fully 40 per cut of
thu total voto Is cast on election tutu iiiiig

which would allow the latter lIve minutes to

We may add for tho fuller consideration
of our candid correspondent that thero

Tho Time t Speak
An esteemed correspondent In Ohio has
written us 1 private letter which we take
the liberty to print In part because it
touches a question of political duty
lama Demecrat having reached th allotted tare
score and ten With the eiceptlon of on vet tl t for Lw

crats Your articles will be scrapbooked by Bepnbll

again to be a cat dlilate as think t he certainly will be
though 1 sincerely hop not
Our friend does not tel us why ho sincere
ly hopes that Mr CLKVTJJAAD will not be
nominated again for President by tho Dem i
ocratic party Wo suppose It Is because our
frIend Is a good Democrat and wants to BOO
tho Democrats win In tho noxt election
I that Is the caso he and wo aro In per
fect agreement thus far
The only difference of opinion Is as to tho
present duty of thoso who sincerely hopo
that Mr CLEVELAND will not again be tho
candidate of the Democracy
Mr CLEVELAND Is already hla own candi
date for 1rosldunt In 181T2 although ho Is not
tho partys candidate Ho Is professionally
engaged In au attempt to persuade the party
that thero li I no Democracy but CLEVELAND

If ho can accomplish his desire It will be
good for the politician and bad for the party
Ills tho business of a newspaper like Till
SUN on the other hand present tho truth
as It understands the truth without regard
for such considerations as our friend urges
In favor of passive acquiescence
Practically our frIend Is requesting us to
assist In promoting the event to which he
looks forward with sIncere apprehension
That Is I not the way to servo tho Democratic
patty All that a colossal egotism and a
scheming selfishness ask at tho present tIme
la a clear track In which to make headway
and what they fear most Is tho outspoken
expression of such loyal and honest Demo

To Carry New York
Our brilliant and enterprising Republican
contemporary tho OlobtDemocrat speaks
with real or affected confidence
uu Of course Mr I Drruw Is able t9 carry New York In
1892 and so la I any other man on the Republican roU of
Presidential possibilities
I depends on tho name and standing of
tho Democratic candidate
DAVID HENNETT hILL can carry New York
against any Hepubllcan who can b put up
There Is no other Democrat who can b
sat to approach him In point of popular
strength in the Empire State
Ton PLAITS tecent demonstration against
holding the Worlds Fair In New York tends
to add immensely to tho relative preponder
ance of the great Democratic leader Fol
lowing PLATTH reckless and absurd manipu
lation of this question the Itepubllcau party
cannot escape Its heavy punishment and
even tho iulluonce of CHAUNCKT DEPBW
among tho masses is seriously damaged
Novor before did tho Democratic cause In
New York wear a brighter halo of hope ana
never was the genius of a public man more
earnestly appreciated than that of Gov
ernor HILL among this people
The crest Worlds Fair In New York Is dead
Our philosophical contemporary the Plo
nerrIrrsi suggests that there should be
a permanent experienced and impartial
Speaker of the house of IloprcsentativeB and
that the House Committees should be elected
by the House Itself The latter Idea bas been
frequently propounded and some good argu
ments hare beon offered In favor of the plan
Itut the British plan of a permanent Speaker
hm nothing to recommend It I Is scarcely
consistent with American ideas I Is I possible
to have an impartial Speaker without having a
permanent Speaker And rotation Is as good
