Mr. Alderman Spurrier, one of these
loe-pursuers, n while age, undertook te
bring down the penalties of the city or
dinances upon seme people who cut
down certain poles In front of their
beuses, which had been put up by the
Maxim electric light company, aided
nnd abetted by Harry Diller, of
the lamp committee, the poles
being Intended te sustain the wires
supplying the electric lights. Mr.
Alderman Spurrier get the citizens be
fore him, and summarily deciding that
they had violated the ordlnance, under
took te iropeso the penalty. Judge Pat
terseu decides that the go-d alderman
mixed things up very badly. He made
a very "dofective and slovenly
record," and does net seem te have
get anything right. He started out
with a suit, as though by an In
former, for " a plea of violation of city
ordinances." Then he drepjed the in.
former and made the city sole com

honorable alderman came te describe

didn't describe it at all, but
get held of the wrong ordlnance and
section entirely. And even if he
had get the right one, the judge says,

absurdity even for an alderman, ex

their capacity te go wrong. The wise
alderman and the wise lamp committee
and.their wise lawyers may net enjoy, as
much as de their fellow-citizens, the
judicial exposure made of the absolute
silliness pervading their undertaking te
held citizens te account for removing a
nuisance from their premises, but it will
net hurt their feelings much ; being as
thick hided as headed fellows.
The Status or Voters.
The Philadelphia lltcurd is entirely
right when it says the assessment of
citizens for vetlug purposes tlve months
before they can exercise the vetine
privilege Is one of the absurdities of our
Pennsylvania law. "There is no reason
why the voting list should be made out
se far In ndvauce of necessity. Under
the constitution any citizen who has re
sided iu an election district two months
before au election has a right te vote. If
he moves into the district three months
before election his name is net en the
assessment list, and he may be put te
considerable trouble before he can obtain
his right. An assessment at a later
period than Is new provided for would
reach his case." The llecerd might
reasonably go further in its recemraen
datlen of au Improved registry law,
and urge that the right of
voters te their suffrage should be
scrutinized by proper legal process nnd
finally determined at a llxed time, say
ten days befere the election. On th0
day of the voting and by u partisan
beard of election elllcers are almost the
worst time and place of determining the
rights of voters. It is tee utten
done unfairly and under excitement
and the remedies for the private and
public wrongs done by the wrongful ex
elusion or acceptance of votes are treu
bleseme and expensive.
The proper method would be for the
beard of election elllcers or seme ether
beard at some time after the last day for
paying taxes, when every voter's
status 's fixed, te prepare mid pest
n complete list of all qualified voters,
subject te appeal te tne court nnd
revision by it, he that in geed time before
the o'tctlen polls open there might ,
publicly posted and in the hands of thoii theii thoii
cenducting the election a full list of all
the qualified voters in the district ; all
en It should vote without question, and
none ethers. There would be no hard
uhlp in this ; every legal voter would have
mere facility te prove his rights than he
has new en election day, nnd much bitter
ness and recrimination that prevail new
at the polls would be prevented. Pelltl
clans would have Uss trouble and the
average voter would be subject te no an
noyance nor danger of unlawful depri
vation of his rights.
