er before Congrcssnd considers that
it would be jprajrticaljy ; impossible to
pUaited proyislons. In speaking of
the bill Mr. 'Carlisle Baid "Suppose
we do a little figuring on it to start
with.' If this bill was a law there
would beat each of the 90,000 elec
tion precincts of the country, at ev
ery Congressional and Presidential
election, 7 Federal officials, making,
a lotal of C30,000 men, and costing
ten or fifteen millions of dollars every
two years. This estimate Li based up
on the present number of voting pre
cincts, but the complications of this
bill would make the process of voting
such a slow one that the number of
precincts would have to be largely In
creased, perhaps doubled, in order to
give the voters an opportunity to de
posit their ballots". The bill has
not been much better received by the
the republicans than by the demo
crats. The Blair educational bill is dead
But the Senator has come up smil
ing with another bill. This time the
appropriation Is only $58,000,000.
The republicans of the House don't
vote as they talk in contested elec
tion cases. The Democrats were led
to believe that seven or eight repub
licans would vote with them in the
case of Mudd vs. Compton, but when
the vote was taken Mudd got the
solid republican vote and the seat.
There are four contested election
cases In which all the arguments
have been heard, and it Is expected
that the republicans of the commit

them through this week. ,

voted for it knows that it is not
