A Surprising Article in the
Daily Oregonian
\Vlllch an Olympia Voter Picks to
[Renew—The Reason Why the
Australian: Systeln is
the Best.
Editor Tribune:
Preparations are making in many of
the counties of Oregon for the voting of
next year under the Australian ballot law.
It is a troublesome system, the machinery
is cumbersome, the cost of holding elec-i
tions will be much increased, the polls
‘ will be obstructed, voting will be de
layed, bus men will not find time to wait,
and the wKole system will be a nuisance.
The professional politicians and strikers
who have time and whose business it is to
take the trouble to “work” elections. will
have more opportunities and more influ
ence than ever, since other persons will be
so delayed and hindered that they will
leave the polls in impatience and disglust.
Again, 'ust and proper influence'wil be
defeated], since the citizen whose character
entitles his opinions to weight and consid
eration, can no longer show an elector
before going to the polls what ticket, in
his opinion, ought to be voted and offer
him one for the purpose. Thousands
go to the polls who do not know how
to vote without being told, and the men
who are best qualified to inform or in
fluence them are cut off from the opportu—
nity. On the other hand the professional
workers, vote—buyers and all who have per
sonal or other special interests to take care
of will In some way get at the voters and
coach them when others will not. It is a
law that obstructs and defeats legitimate
influence at the polls, disgusts an drives
away a lar e class of the best voters who
will not suimit to “monkeying” and de
lay, and furnishes the class who make a
profession of election work with better op
portunites than ever. The Australian
ballot law is merely a scheme of idealogists
and uisionaries, and it may safely be Pre
dicted that after its first general tria in
Oregon there will be a general demand for
its repeal.
The above article appears in the Sunday
Oregonian December 13, 1891. It is with
the greatest surprise that I see a. Republi
can journal of good repute take the same
old wornout arguments employed by
Governor David B. Hill of New York, and
1 his mouthpiece “The Sun," in their fight
1 against an honest and secret ballot on be
} half of one of the most corrupt of political
machines of the day, Tammany Hall.
Every good citizen admits that it is a com
fort to go to the polls now. There is no
pulling, no hauling, everything quiet,
orderly, and above all. it is secret. Having
acted as inspector or judge of election at
every election held in this city since the
above new law Went into effect and never
having taken any more interest in elections
than what is the duty of every good citi
zen, and having closely observed its oper
ation in twenty or more states which has
adopted the system since it was first ad
vocated about ten years ago, I believe I can
speak with some knowiedge of its good
‘ results.
Wherever a political machine or boss
controls the election of a state ora sub~
division of a state, they’are always the first
to cry, “stop thief!” and plead for the
political freedom of the dear people; par
ticularly the illiterate ones. I have heard
but few men in this vicinity object to the
secret ballot; in fact only two. One of
them was a member of the Legislature that
passed the bill. After his first trial he
summed u!) his experience to me in these
words: “ )-——n the Australian ballot!"
But you must excuse him; it broke his
slate. Vulgarly expressed” “He was not
in it.” The other gentleman has succeeded
himself in office the last twenty years or
more. After the first rattle out of the box
(Australian ballot box) his verdict is: “I
don' like the Kangaroo ballot!” We hear
a few saying: “We cannot understand the
instructions.” They are very simple; put
a cross X after the name you wish to vote
for. If I had a boy 12 years old that did
not know enough to obey instructions so
simple, I should have small hopes for his
I will now try to examine the Oregon
ianian’s charges seriatmn. First that pa
per says: “It is a troublesome system
with cumbersome machinery.”
I will admit that it does trouble some
)eople considerable" for instance, ward
bosses accustomed to carry the vote of
their ward in their vest pocket; but the
elector or election officers, never; it is a
pleasant change for them, Instructions
are placed in the booth before each voter;
ifthe voter from physical or educational
disability is unable to read, he can select
one or two of the ljudgcs to assist him. Its
machine]?! is eqa ly simple.
It is on y one writing desk with neces
sary sides to screen him from observation
for everg 50 voters registered. In our pre
cinct, econd ward, we had aregistered
vote of about 300, also six booths or com
partments, At no time were more than
four occupied at one time, and that
only during the rush between 12 and 1
o’clock an 5 and 7 p.m. We can recelve
and record one vote per minute, which is
fully as fast as the old system, where the
voter often had to crush and squeeze him—
self in among ticket peddlers and other so
called workers before he was able to ap
proach the ballot box.
Second, the Oregonian says: “The cost
ofelection will be much increased.’j
At first sight it may so apnear, because
the neople pay for printing be lots directly,
whereas under the old system the success
ful candidate advanced the money, know—
ing that if he got a good chance me would
pay himself back with interest. Look at
p 0 itical assessments levied on candidates
amounting to as much as one year’s salary
out of a two or three year’s term—some
times cven more. I never will believe it
comes out of their pockets if they are suc
cessful. A man of small means can get his
name on the Australian system ticket;
under the old system never; he could not
afford the expense. ,
Thirdlg, the Oregonian says: “The polls
will be 0 strueted and voting delayed.”
An officer is present to see that onl
voters enough to fill booths are admitted:
When one retires he admits another. There
can be no obstruction. Experience has
shown that one booth to every fifty voters
is sufficient. Nobody is allowed to remain
after depositing his ballot. He must retire
at least liftgl feet from the polling place.
There can 9no delay, no obstruction.
“Fourthly—“ The whole system is a nui
sance." , _ _ 7
The whole is not only a nuisance, but it
is sure death to machines. bosses and
strikers, and the best thing for the voter
and election ofiieer. Each can perform his
work in peace.
Fifthly~Just and proper influence will
he defeated, since the Citizen whose char
acter entititles his opinion to weight and
consideration can no longer show an elec
tor before going to the galls what ticket in
his opinion ought to e voted, and offer
him one for that purpose."
The “just and proper" influence can be
exercised as well and better fifty feet from
the polls than right before the ballot box.
There is no man whose character entitles
, him, in my humble opinion, to tell me
l what ticket I, in his opinion ought to
vote, or to give me the ticket 1 ought to
vote. It. is not “his” opinion thatis wanted.
it is the voter’s free Will that is wanted.
Sixth —“Thousands do not know how to
vote without being told.”
Instruct them at your political meetings,
‘ through the Oregonian and other papers,
if he still is in doubt let him ask the ofii
‘cers of election. If then he cannot grasp
it let him stay home, he will do more harm
than good because some politician without
conscience—and some politicians have
none—may instruct him wrong.
Seventh—" Professional workers, vote
buyers. etc., will in some way get at the
I Not if you can find three honest men in
l your Precinct as judges of election.
Eig Ith—“lt may safely be predicted,
that after the first trial in Oregon, there
will be a general demand for its repeal.”
Dear Oreionian, don’t fool yourself when
the people ave tried it once. Woe to the
Politician who would try to repeal the
aw. When a man is left alone with his
God and his lead pencil, it is hard to fore
tell the result. OLAF Fmson.
