E- lect men who will manage the affairs of the town in an economical and careful manner. Men who can say no. Men you would trust to run your business. By so doiDg the burden of heavy taxa tion can be lightened. It is too bad that the new states, the Dakotas, should treat us to their -bominable zero weather, so quick after the signing of the bill preparing the way for their admission to the Union. They ought to be kept out in the cold till they will promise better. Some one has remarked that Dakota will proba bly be called upon to furnish the na tional air. Last week we surrendered to the ed itor of the Windsor Journal in the mat ter of the law regarding calling town meetinr? to order. This week we shall recede from the position of last, having received new licht iu consular)" the statute to which the Jourual referred It is now clear to us that the person who was elected moderator at the last annual town meeting should call the next annual town meeting to order. In his absence one of the selectmen shall do this. The statute provides that cer tain town officers, among them the mod erator, shall hold office until the next annual town meeting, and it further provides that the same officers except the moderator, shall hold office until their successors are appointed. The new law, dropping out the words, "ex cept the moderator," places that offieer in the same position as the other town officers in respect to holding office un til his successor is appointed. The re sult is, the moderator of lest spring is moderator now and will be until his successor is chosen, even though that should not be for a doren years. We understand that some of the moderators will insist upon and exercise the rights which the law gives them. Some say it mttkes no difference who calls the meeting to order, but we are inclined to think that the roectiugmust have le ral officers in order to do legal business. President Cleveland has signed the territorial bill crcatiuj; four new states and thus performing an act in the clos ing days of his administration that will reflect credit upon himself in the eyes of the people, if not in the eyes of the democratic party. These four states arc North and South Dakota, Monta na aud Washington. The law provides that the governors of these states shall, on the 15th of April order an election of delegates to constitutional con veil tions to be held in the territorial cajii tals May 14, the South Dakota dele- gates will meet at Sioux Falls. These conventions must adopt the constitution of the United States and frame consti tutions of their own in harmony with it, and on the first Tuesduy in October the people of the several territories shall vote to ratify the constitutions submit ted. Upon the adoption of such consti tutions and their certification by certain officers of the territory to the president of the United States, he shall proclaim the result. The territories will then become states if their action is favora ble. North Dakota, Montana and Washington will be entitled to one rep resentative each in Congress, and So. Dakota two, and of course each will be entitled to two senators. Dakota has G00.000; Montana 175,000; Wash ington 143,000. The admission of these states brings an immense territo-' ry into the Union. The four new states surpass iu size the original 13. Wash ington is larger than New England and Delaware ; Montana is larger than New England, New York, New Jersey Delaware and Maryland with the state of Maine thrown in a second time. Da kota exceeds in size New England, New York, New Jersey and West Virginia. Dakota has immense agricultural re sources, Moptana mineral resources and grazing, while Washington has all these and fisheries besides. Under state gov ernments ttliese territorties will devel- ope rapidly. -. BALLOT REFORM. The Rutland Herald attempted not long ago to find out the views of repre sentative men in the state on the sub. jeet of ballot reform in this state. The result would indicate that a desire lor a change w as not very marked. Some do not think any change is needed Others suggest changes because it was expected of them. On the whole the result of the investigation was not re markably satisfactory to the ballot re formers. Our condition may be defin ed by the statement which the Kenne bec Journal makes regarding Maine. That paper says there are four hundred towns and plantations in that state where the provisions of the Australian system would be unnecessary, but in the larger cities the abuses of the fran chise privilege are beginning to creep in, and here is where arises the need of ballot reform measures. This is a bout our fix. Some reform might be applied to towns having more than a certain number of inhabitants. We do not think any attempt will be made to reform the ballot here at present. Its abuses are not such as to attract mark ed attention. But we wish to speak of ballot reform as it is progressing in oth er states. There are about twenty leg islative bodies now in session, and in almost every one of them the matter! has been brought up in some form or othr. Nearly all the bills introduced " . tested lis W'lnaeriui i urn ive pt.wers in are modeled after what is knowu as the , tli(ms-in.s of cases, lias felt it his tint v Now and then one lo "wk'" ei"o n to hissu!li'riiir fellows. Actuated I'V iiiis motive ami a tu-ire to voting places and the manner of cast ing votes that no voter shall seem to be unduly influenced in his choice when he steps up to deposit his ballot. Of course, there are politicians who do not like this reform and they are exercising their ingenuity in framing bills that ap pear to reform but in reality leave room for all the rid abuses. It is to be hop ed that a sharp eye will be kept on all these schemes ana that they be effectu ally headed off. Massachusetts prides I.erself on being the leader in this re form. Six different bills have been brought before the Connecticut legisla ture. Three are modeled on the gen eral lines of the Australian system, al though one would simplify the ballot by providing that certain officers now elect ed shall be appointed by the selectmen. There are three bills of Democratic or igin which embody the envelope sys tem. One of these more prominent than the others bears the name of its author, Cleveland. This provides that the State shall furnish an envelope iu which to place the ballot. The voting must be done in secret apartments but the votes can be obtained of ticket ped dlers of any party, as is uow done. The reform is so slight here that it ut hardly worth while to make account of Another bill provides that the en velopes be punctured after the ballots have been put into them, and still an other provides that there shall be ves tibules into which the voter may retire aud prepare his ballot. These meas ures all come short of the reform need ed. The bill favored by the republic ans is modeled after the Massachusetts and Saxton bills. This provides that the ballot be furnished by the state, and signed on the back by the Moderator of the polling place by initials or stamp so as to make it an official ballot. It provides separate polling places for ev ery four hundred voiers, for secret com partments and for the absence of crowds at the polls. The measures introduced into some of the other states are worthy of notice. The Johns bill in Illinois incorporates provisions for registration, aud at elections provides for tables di vided into compartments by partitions instead of voting shelves. In Alaba ma they have w-hat they call the Law son bill. This provides that the ballots shall be prepared by the J udges of Pro bate. If any person wishes to vote for any particular candidate he can notify the Judge of Probate and have the name inserted in the ballot. The mimes o" candidates that one does not wish to vote for can be erased with pen and ink. The elector is to prepare his bal lot "without any instruction, informa tion, interference, direction or sign whatever from the inspectors or any one else." lint this bill contains one unique feature. It inserts a clause that is designed tocouftise the illiterate. The bottom facts of the case are, it is hoped by means of it to nullify the col ored vote. The substance of the clause is, that when two or more persons for the same office are printed upon the same ticket, the names of said persous shall be alternated upon the tickets during the printing of the same. It required the ingenuity of a Ilourbon to get up a scheme like this. It is clear that in Alabama the voters need re forming quite as much as the system of votiug. This method of doing away with the colored vote has some advan tages over the Ku KIux plan, but the same spirit may be found underneath. In New York they are still pressing for refirm. If you want garden seeds that are sure to grow order them of Price and Reed whose card is in another column. We use their seods and know they are good. CONSUMPTION CURED.
