This law provided separate hallots for each nariv and thp ohipption rjaiiots ior eacn party, ana trie oojection was that it allowed eacli party to print its own tickets. There was fear that this plan would lead to fraud and therefore it was not approved. It is likely that some law will be pro posed which will nrovide separate tickets for each party. There are a number of people in the State who favor the adop-; tion of a voting machine. The only ob jection urged to the machine is its cost, wind ii is believed that the cost will deter .

The truth af the matter is, that the regiment has been made the plaything of the politician.
