There are loud complaints from

the census has been taken. These
come up especially strong from the

Vote-Buying in Msine.

The New York World publishes
a letter from tlie district of Con
gressman Reed in Maine, in which
very serious charges of vote buy
ing are made.
It is stated that the
success of Mr. Reed in always get
ting elected to Congress, on which
we commented on yesterday, comes
largely 'from the employment of
money in bribery at elections, and
that a good deal of this money is
furnished by 'corporations which
regard Mr. Reed as their represen
tative in Congress. It strikes us
that these statesments are made so
