In an Interview Judge W S Pryor

return to the viva voce system of vot

on the appellate bench und suys his in

it is jwasible under

llIecrct ballot for u few men absolutely I
I l to control elections by a few neatly ex
ecuted frauds and that no way has
been found to circumvent them hlUll
as under the viva vocu system
voter has his namo recorded and can
aco that his name is properly entered
IC a contest results under the viva voco

voted thus greatly lowuiiing tho op
ortunlty for fraud Thero could un

secret ballot cast In secret and counted
in secret The advocate ot the reten
tion of tho present system argue that
corporations will bo able to control
elections by coercing their employes to
vote tta they dictate but even that
t would not bo no deplorable as to have
dishonest election officers set aside thu
expressed will of the voters as they can
and do under the secret ballot The
question Is to bo voted on in the coming
