llallot Reform in tlie Legislature.
The Keator ballot reform bill has
passed second reading in the house, and
will pass finally in that body. When it
reaches tho senate it is expected it will
be violently opposed by Senators Martin
and Fllnn, tho bosses of Philadelphia
and Pittsburg, as its provisions are too
strict to suit these ballot corrupters.
Martin lias a snide "reform" bill of his
own before the senate, which lie will
substitute for tho house measure. The
Keator bill provides absolute secrecy in
voting. Under tho proposed law no
voter shall have a helper unless he is
physically incapacitated or unable to
read. His helper must first declare
under oath, subscribed to, that lie will
not attempt to influence the voter, but
will give hi in tho help ho desires, and
that he will not disclose the contents of
the ballot except in legal proceedings.
The bill does away with the circle and
the name of the candidate shall he
printed but once on the ballot for the
same office. The bill also reduces the
ballot to one-sixth of its present size and
enables the voter to avoid the risk of
mistake in voting. There is only one
way to mark a ballot according to this
bill, by putting a mark opposite the
name of each candidate, the candidates
being in groups, within party names
and appellations following thorn. The
bill was drawn to remedy tlie defects In
the ballot laws of 1891 and 1893, so as to
make it conform more nearly to the
Australian system.

Six Year* of Silpnino.
Edward J. Cunningham wnh releas
ed from San Quentin after serving a
sentence of six years for burglary,
and with his liberation there, passed
from the prison walls one of the
strangest characters that ever wore
striped garb of the penitentiary.
When Cunningham was landed with
in the walls of San Quentin prison he
turned to the sheriff who hud con
ducted him thither and swore u heav
ily solemn oath that no word would
escape his lips during the perlotfof
his incarceration. Cunningham stoqd
by his oath through the long, weary
years of his sentence, and his tongue
never loosened until lie stepped with
out the prison walls a free man.
Whenever it became necessary for
Cunningham to communicate bis needs
or wants to others, he did so in writ
ing or by motions. After being con
fined in the prison a short time be was
thought to he insane and was sent to
the Ukiah Asylum. Here he was con
fined but a short time, for it was soon
ascertained he was in his right mind
and merely acting in a stuhbron man
ner. Word was sent to the prison of
ficials and Guard Miller was sent to
the asylum to bring the prisoner back.
When near Santa Rosa he jumped
through a car window, hut was capt
ured after a hard chase. After his
return he still preserved an inviolable
silence .and was put into what is
known as crank alley. Here all kinds
of influence were brought to hear up
on him to cause him to speak, hut
without avail. He also refused to
have his hair cut, and when released
his hair was measured aud was found
to be fifty-four inches In* length.
When relieved of his prison garb a
smile overspread his countenance.
Several people spoke to him. but he
only grinned. Once outside the prison
gate Cunningham made up for lost
time. He condemned every one around
the prison for his confinement When
asked how he managed to control him
self and preserve* an unbroken silence
for so many years, he angrily replied
that he had uo explanation to make.
