WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER «8,1905
The Railway World expresses
great satisfaction over President
Roosevelt's Raleigh speech, as it
finds therein evidences that he is
not as "radical" as he used to be
on the question of railroad rate
The. suspended order requir
ing rural free, delivery boxes to
be numbered is not likely to be
enforced. Instead of being a
protection, this rule would ena
ble anyone to reach every patron
on the route without knowing the
name of anyone of them. The
only thing necessary to know
would be the number of routes
from each town and the number
of patrons on each
Mayor Jones has annouced that
hereafter the saloons must stay
closed on Sundays in Minneapo
lis. The mayor Has now a police
force that will carry out his com
mands to the letter and as long
as Jones is mayor the state law
will be respected in the metropo
lis. We hope Gov. Johnsbn will
soon see his way clear to demand
compliance with the state law in
all cities of the state. It is being
notoriously violated everywhere
in the capital city, the front doors
of saloons being open and the
drinks freely dispensed (to
licemen as well as others) within
a block of the capitoiD
W. W. Jermane, the Minneapolis
Journal's Washington correspon
dent, says that Robert Bacon is
likely to succeed Shaw as Secre
tary of the Treasury, and then
adds the following-naive remark:
Mr. Bacon is a rich man and be-found
longs to one of the best families of the
metropolis. He is in the confidence of
the financial interests of the country,
and as secretary of the treasury would
insure the support of these interests
for the Roosevelt administration on
all questions of finance.
The support of the financial
interests of the couritryis very
easily obtained. All they ask is
to have their men in the execu
tive places and their measures
proposed. Th trust-busting
program seems to have been mis
The death list for the year end
ing June 30th last is now com-their
plete. The railroads of this
country killed 537 and maimed
10,040" passengers and killed
3,261 and injured 45,426 employes
during the year. There were
6,224 collisions and 5,371 derail
ments. These figures are those
of the Interstate Commerce Com
mission. Had so many casual
ties occurred in a field of battle
or in some terrible calamity it
would have created a great sen
sation, but as it is it excites but
little comment. It costs less to
kill and injure 60,000 people a
year than to equip the roads with
appliances, watchmen and other
means for minimizing the num
ber of accidents, and dollars areent
more of an object to privately
owned highways than public saf
Boy Stannard Baker, in a dis
cussion of the railway rate regu
lation in McClure's Magazine,
shows that there is a great deal
of discrimination in rates favor
ing certain persons and places.
He says the large shippers get
rates that practically cover only
the actual cost of moving their
goods, leaving the small shippers
at non-competitive points to furn
ish the profits for tbe roads. Mr.
Baker proposes to remedy this,
condition by abolishing railway
competition, allowing the rail
roads to pool receipts. This
would undoubtedly do away with
competition and discriminations
in favor of certain banks, but
where would the people as a
whole be benefited thereby? The
railroads would earn more, and
the earnings must ultimately
come from the people at large.
The industrial and transporta
tion trusts are too closely related
to give industrial freedom to the
people., It certainly cannot be
done by enlarging the powers of
one of these trusts. Govern
ment ownership of the railroads
would end'the combination, and
nothing else will do it effectually.
|JHE, EFFECTIVE BALLOT.
our present system of
voting not more than ..forty per
cent of .the votes are effective.
Many officials elected in three or
more cornered contests are elec
ted by minority vote. Under the
present primary law, especially,
the plurality reckoning is unjust
and admits of manipulation by
the filing of decoy candidates for
splitting up the vote. Tom Wat
son's Magazine for November
contains an article on proportion
al representation7 and an effective
ballot which should interest all
who believe in the sovereignty of
the popular will. We quote the
The effective ballot is especially
adapted to nominations by direct pri
mary elections, and nominations are
so made where it is in use in Tasma
nia, in sone Swiss cantons, in Den
mark municipalities, and for choosing
directors in many corporations. The
names of all candidates for the dis
trict are printed in single column, ar
ranged alphabetically, with no party
names or emblems. Of course, this
may disfranshise a few very illiterate
voters, which will be the greatest pos
sible stimulus to education, but the to
tal number of such will be but a tithe
of that disfranchised by the present
system and nothing but prospective
sfranchisement will cause some per
sons to educate'their children. Vo
ers unable to read intelligently area
menace to good government, and this
automatic method is the best for elim
inating the danger.
Instead of making an in the
square opposite the names, the voter
prefixes the tfUmerals 1, 2, 3, 4, and so
on to the names, No. 1 representing
his first choice, or the one he most
wishes to elect No. 2 being his sec
ond choice, 3 his third, and so forth,
in case his first fails of election.
Where but one candidate is to be
elected, as the president, and none has
a majority, the process of transferring
to second choice and of elimination
of lowest candidates, is the same un
til the largest possible number of bal
lots become affirmatively effective.
In actual experience it is found that
few are elected by first choices and
that a majority are chosen by second
choice ballots, some succeeding by aid
of third or fourth choices, but not
many. The important thing is that
over 90 per cent, of the ballots are
affirmatively effective—cast for elected
candidates—whereas only 40 or less
per cent, are effective under the pres
system. Also that any minority
or new school of thought able to mus
ter near an electoral quota get enough
second choice ballots to secure them
one representative and thus be heard
in councils of state so as to get their
Views before the people.
When the polls are closed for count
ing, the total number of ballots shown
the poll bocks is divided by the
number of candidates to be elected, re
jecting any remainder, the quotient be
ing the electoral quota, or number of
ballots required to elect one candi
date. A spindle or other form of file
having been provided and labeled for
each candidate, the name of the vot
er's No. 1, or first choice, is called as
the ballot is drawn from the box andstarted
the ballot placed in that candidate's
file. As soon aer any candidate is
to have an electoral quota of
first choice ballots he is declared
elected and his quota of ballots sealed
up and removed from the count. Any
ballots cast for-this candidate in ex-do
cess of an electoral quota are placed
to their second choice, or if he is al
ready elected or it is found he cannot
be, to the third choice until they be
come effective in helping ect a can
didate—that is, become effective bal
lots. This is continued until it is
found there can be no more elections
by first choice ballots, when the candi
date having fewest first choices is
eliminated by transferring his ballot
to their second choices. Then the
next lowest is so eliminated until only,
the number to be elected remains, who
are declared elected in the order of
number of highest choices. In
case of vacancy by death or other
chance, the vacancy is filled by the de
feated candidate having the largest
vote—as it should always be.
