Mr. George lost bis election as
Mayor of Now York, but the heavy
vote he received on that occasion and
the ability he showed in the conduct
of it have won for him a lrgh degree
of public regard. His sayings aud
opinions are quoted with lespoct. As
" an instance the New York Times, a
' paper opposed . to hia candidacy,
; quotes approvingly what it calls an
extremely practical suggestion made
by him, and which, indeed, is worthy
of wide attention.. The suggestion Ib
' the adoption of the Australian ballot,
a system that tbe English adopted in
tbe ballot act of 1872. By this system
the btmea oi all candidates for any
office, being reg'stered, are printed at
public expense on one ballot, and the
voter indicates hia choke by a mark
opposite the name of the candidate.
Two advantages are thus secured. The
great expente of preparing ballota is
voided and the risk of error or will
ful change In the counticg is reduced
to the lowest point. By a system such
m this, tbe ballot would command
more confidence, and would pre
vent thi accusations of unfairnera now
to citen hesrd, and decrease tbe num
ber of disputed e'ections. With this
v ejstem shou'd also bs adopted means
, for absolute stciecy aa to tbe contents
- of the papeia voted, so as to check
. bribery aud prevent employers and
others dictating the votes of others.
' ;, ' , The ballot is essential to tbe preserva
tion oi our liberties, and nothing
abonld be neglected which will con-
w-s i.duce to each vote teing a free and In
. dependent expression of tbe voter's
" wishes and intentions.
