Samm »Ty of the Plan Propose* to the Legislature by the Committee. Atlanta, Not. 28.—The joint com mittee of the senate and house appoint ed to prepare a registration law which would fill the long felt want in this re spect, has completed its duty, and the bill has been submitted to the house. Naturally, it is a lengthy measure, covering as it does a subject of vital im portance. and furnishing the details for a registry system which will be general throughout' the state, meeting, as it does, the objections and special conoi* tions of special localities. The bill first provides that no person shall be allowed to vote in any election in state or county affairs who is not a legally registered voter. The tax collector of each county is made ex-officio registrar and is required to open, on January ), 1895, and on the first day of each succeeding year, a book, or books, properly prepared, head ed on the first page with the form of oath prescribed, and to keep said book open all the year during his office hours of each day. The tax collector, clerks of the court and ordinary of each coun ty are made a board of revision for the purpose of preparing, each year, a list of non registered voters; this list to be presented, with the registry list, to a county board of election registrars who are to be appointed by the grand jury, and composed of three good citizens. This board is to prepare a third list, by comparing the two furnished by the tax collector, which will comprise those entitled to vote but not on the registry list although entitled to a place thereon. This list, prepared by the board of registrars, will be the official voting list and will be in the hands of each elec tion manager, together with similarly prepared lists of non-registered voters who will be denied tht right to vote un less they submit to the following oath: I do swear (or affirm) that I am 21 years of age, have resided in this state one year and in this county six months, next pre ceding this election. I have paid all taxes which since the adoption of the present constitution of this state have been re quired of me previous to this year, and which I have had opportunity to pay, and I have not voted at this election. Upon taking said oath the managers of the election shall receive his ballot and mark on the ballot and opposite his name on the voting list the word ‘sworn. ’ In its lengthy details, the bill is thor ough and complete in every arrange ment for the proper, legal exercise of the ballot by citizens of Georgia; at the same time throwing such safeguards around the elections as will effectually prevent the corrupt practices sometimes committed. ROCKEFELLER INDICTED. The-Whole Gang: of Standard Oil Men Are Wanted in Waco. Waco, Tex., Nov. 2S.—The grand jury of McLennan connty has returned an indictment against all the officers of the Standard Oil company, from Presi dent Rockefeller down.

The charge was also made that Gov ernor Hogg and Charles Culberson, at torney general of Texas, were cogni zant of the illegal methods of the cor poration named and refused to institute an investigation, notwithstanding tha! proofs had been submitted. The grand jury summoned the par ties making those charges, and protract ed investigation followed. Witnesses were brought from Mariet ta, O., who testified that they fa— timed coal oil, bjit were driven > uf e the market by the Standard Oil tm of which the Waters-Pieroe company was a member.
