In its Issue of the 4th inst, it dis

"The chief thing at which tho Austra?

they enter an official ballot (ticket) is
handed them. Then and ther** the voter
erases from the printed ballot the
names of all persons tor whom he does
not wish to vote."
So far, so good, but read what
"Under tho Walton bill, where a voter
cannot read and write, he is entitled to
call into the booth the special constable,
who must render him assistance by
