ABOUT THE ME BILL.
IIow It Would Act, and Why We Ought Not to Hurry. MASSACHUSETTS WENT SLOW. If Adopted as It Stands It Would Be Confusing, and, Perhaps, Injurious. [Special to the Jersey City News.'] Trenton, April 3, 1889.—A decided Shange of sentiment seems to have taken place in the minds of several members of the House on thesubjectof the Australian Election bill since that measure was put through the Assembly last Thursday by an almost unanimous vote. There is a strong feeling now that it would be weU to go slow. Men who have been pushing the bill for all they were worth have all at once realized that it amounts to a complete change of election methods and election machinery; that the system proposed to be introduced is extremely complicated, and that errors are almost certain to occur, in spite of the greatest vigUance, both in the preparation of the ballots and in voting them. In order that the system should suc ceed, it would be necessary to drill the voters as well as the election officers. It is felt that to try the first experiment with this new system at an election so import ant as the one to be held next autumn, when a Governor is to be elected, would be not only injudicious but dangerous, The bill will be before the Senate this week, and the action of that body wiU be watched with interest. It was for such reasons that Colonel Heppenheimer and other Democratic lead ers sought to have the operation of the law deferred until 1890. They wanted the system tried first at a township election, where mistakes mould be of far less con sequence than at a general election. The voters would thus have an opportunity of getting accustomed to the system, and defects in the law could be discovered by Eractical operation and remedied. People ave more respect for the sound common sense of Assemblyman Feeney since he had the courage to stand out against the nassaee of the law. almost alone. MASSACHUSETTS SLOW TO ACT. In comparison with the haste shown in the New Jersey legislature to put the law in operation, it is instructive to note that in Massachusetts, when the law was adopted in 1888, it was provided that it should not take effect until 1890, thus al lowing time for citizens to familiarize themselves with its provisions. Massa chusetts allowed two years. New Jersey proposes to allow six months. Colonel Heppenheimer’s proposition was to pass the law this session; to let the Legislature of 1890 make such amend ments as might be found necessary by ex aminations of it between the time of its passage and the meeting of the Legislature next January; and to test it at the town ship elections in 1890. The Gubernatorial election next November would be held under the present system. He urged that such an election was of too serious and important a character for an experiment. He and many other Democratic leaders fear that with the mistakes likely to occur in printing the ballots; in votiDgthem, ana in counting and handling them, the result of the election may be determined more by chance than by the will of the people. THE KANE BILL CRUDE. These reasons for avoiding undue haste, which might have very serious and damaging consequences to the State, con cern the practical operation of the law. In the case of the Kane bill, which was pussed in the Assembly last week, there are additional reasons why there should be delay, and why its operation should be postponed at least a year. Lawyers who have examined it say that whatever opinion may be entertained of the princi ples on which it is drawn, the Kane bill is aiot>c such shape that it could be safely put into effect. They say that it is crude and they believe that it will be necessary to alter it in many particulars before it can come anywhere near accomplishing the objects for which it is intended. In proof of this the fact is cited that no less than 130 amendments were made to it in committee, while forty others were adopted when it came up on second read ing. It is not known now many more amendments will be found necessary wheu the act is more carefully studied and analyzed. The great boom which the Australian system has received,;has been due in a great measure to the urgent necessity of the adoption of some means to check bri bery and intimidation at elections. The assertion lias been boldly made that this plan from the Antipodes would render bribery and intimidation impossible, and, in disgust with the present state of things, there arose a general demand that the system should be tried. INTERESTS OF THE DEMOCRATS. No one recognizes the vital necessity of reform in this respect and of the protec electoral franchise more thoroughly than do the gentlemen who are now pleading for delay in putting in operation the Kane hill. They include some of the foremost Democrats in the State, and they know how severe a straggle the Democratic party has had in the past to hold its own, owing to the bribery and intimidation practiced by the Republicans. In New Jersey it is not the Democrats who have profited by bribery and intimi dation. The wealthy men who have con tributed enormous sums of money to buy elections have been Republican capitalists and manufacturers; the men who have driven employees to the polls with ballots of their own choosing; who have threat ened poorly paid laborers with discharge if they did not vote for certain candidates, have been Republican manufacturers. The interests or the Democratic party are wholly in the direction of the purification of elections. With these facts in view, eminent Democrats want to whistle down brakes on the Kane bill. They say that the people must become familiar with the system before it will be safe to try' it at an important election, and that the Kane hill should be made as nearly perfect as pos sible before it is tried at all. There is a third reason for delaying until the Aus tralian system can be carefully, deliber ately and Intelligently studied. That is that many experienced men doubt its efficiency. THE TASMANIAN RACKET. With the arrival of the Australian sys tem in this country, came also accounts of what is known as the Tasmanian Racket. To those who have not heard of this sin ful device an account of it will he inter esting. Under the Kane bill the County Clerk has the ballots printed. The number of ballots to be printed is determined by law. In the Tasmanian Racket the County Clerk or some other tricked politician who wants his side to win has as many extra ballots printed as he judges advisable. The law requires the election officer to stamp each ballot before giving it to a voter. The T. R. sinner gets a counterfeit stamp and stamps his extra ballots. Then he puts the required crosses opposite the names of the candi dates he wants to elect, and carefully draws lines through the other names, so as to make it impossible to tamper further with the ballot. He gives one of these forged and pre pared ballots to the voter who has agreed to sell his vote, and says;—“Deposit this ballot; in the box and bring to me the offi cial ballot which will be given to you by | the election officer. When I receive it, I will pay you the money agreed upon. The corrupt voter goes through all the forms prescribed by law to prevent bribery and intimidation; receives an official bal lot from the election officer; deposits the forged ballot; hands over the genuine bal lot to the worker of the Tasmaqjan Racket, and pockets his reward. AN AID TO COIilHT’TION. A little consideration of the Tssmanian Racket will seem to show that it. has beautiful points independent of beating the Australian law. It acts ns a perfect check on the corrupter and corrupted. The genuine ballot serves as a receipt. So many genuine ballots turned in, so many voters corrupted. One great obstacle to buving elections has been that a large proportion of the corruption fund sticks to the hands of the corrupters. If the Tasmanian Racket can be worked with success this will be prevented. The cor rupter will be entrusted with so much money and will be required to turn in so many genuine ballots, each one of which will represent one vote bought. Men who buy whole States will be able to reduce j their rates fifty per cent, if the Racket is all it is cracked up to be. Further reason for delay is found in the fact that there are on the statute books of ! New Jersey a great many laws relating to special local elections. These laws are not treated in the Kane bill, and the conflict, or rather the difficulty, of reconciling the provisions in these enactments with the Kane bill, will be the cause of much con fusion. At least, that is the opinion ex pressed by gentlemen who have examined the subject. __ A BLIND HORSE WINS. Chinese Gordon Was Not Hampered by the Mud at Clifton Yesterday.

Lieutenant Robert Berry, of Com pany C, Fourth Regiment, is a general favorite with the young ladies of the Hill. Some months ago he organized the Berry Cadets, composed of young ladies. The cadets have been success ful in giving several entertainments, and in honor of the numerous suc cesses a surprise party was arranged to take place at the residence of the Misses Fischer, No. 59 Bowers street. The affair was held last Thursday night and was a great success. An in vitation was sent to the Lieutenant, of course, and he fell into the trap that had been laid for him. During the course of the evening he was called to the centre of the floor and Miss Sarah Brower, on behalf of the members of the company, presented him with a handsome gold medal. The surprise was complete, and when the Lieutenant had recovered from it, he made a neat speech, in which he thanked his friends for the gift. Among those present were:— Miss Lily B. Sproul, Miss Ida Varick, the Misses Rae and Cora Clark, Miss' Maggie McDonald, Miss Maggie Ridgway, Miss Ftuiline Schoor, the Misses Lucy and Louise Ackerson, Miss Jennie Laird, Miss Emma Meredith, Mpt Joseph Jdhnson, Mr. George Laylor, Mr. F. Herman Raetz, Mr. John McDonald. Mr. J. Ferguson, Mr. V. Stewart, Mr. Fred erick Anderson, Mr. L. Keyser, Mr. J. Harrison, Mr. W. Kidd and Mr. Henry Wilson._ He Is In Jail Now. Henry Brelthauer was- arraigned in the Court of Special Sessions yesterday morning. He was indicted for beat ing his wife. His plea was guilty, but when he made it he burst into tears and declared that his wife provoked him to the act. He said that he gave her each month $65 or $75, and that until six weeks ago they lived happily. She then fonnd fault with hiiji, and several days ago beat him with a loaf of bread. He declared that when he came home from his work in New York she abused him, and that the nightthe assault took place she struck him and then dared him to strike her. He was brave enough to do this, and hit her four times. The Court decided that his pluck was worth ten days in the County Jail and sent him there. No Fatal Case of Scarlet Fever. To the Editor of The Jersey City News:— Referring to an article of a recent date in your paper, headed “Derelict Doctors,” in which you take me to task for having neglected to report “n fatal case of scarlet fever,” I beg leave to state that I have not had a single fatal cqse of scarlet fever since January last, ana the officials of the County Board of Health will vouch for the fact that no physician in the county is more prompt in reporting such cases as the above, or any others which the law compels or directs. Yours, etc., Samuel A. Helfeb. Hoboken, March 37,1889. The Fisher’s Three Bs. Armed with rod and flask, the angler now marches forth, to return laden with spoils of the imagination.

Freight, Engineers Dougherty and George Williams, of this city, will go down for promotion to passenger en gines at the examination, and Ticket Examiners John Walsh and George Mount fully expect to go up higher and punch tickets at the through train gates. Clarence Haines, the ticket agent in the Jersey City station of the Penn sylvania Railroad, is not only one of the handsomest, but also one of the most obliging agents in the company’s service. Confidence men and other crooks are rare curiosities at the Pennsylva nia station since Detective Bob Morris and Policeman Reen have been sta tioned there. Detective Van Houten, of the Penn sylvania Railroad, is now called “Cap tain” by the railroad men, since he en gineered the successful raid against the tramps at Rahway last week. The gates of the Grove street cross ing of the Erie railroad are very care lessly managed. Detective Brown is one of the hard est worked men in the employ of the Erie railroad. Station Master Hall, of the Pavonia depot, is very popular with his subordinate officers. __ _ A M USII M EX TS. H. R. JACOBS' HOBOKEN THEATRE Popular Prices. Sterling Attractions.
