Election Frauds by Judges and Clerks
Frauds in elections aro not all com
mitted by the voters either. It has de
veloped in many caes upon all election
contests that hundreds of leR d votes
(ballots) have been by the judges nd
clerks of elections thrown out, or sup
pressed, while other hundreds of ballot
that newr were voted at all Have been
counted, and cast up in the returns.
These frauds were committed by the
judges and clerk of eleetious and by
nobody else. Our legislature has been
after this sort of citizens, however, now
for some time past and with a tiretty
sharp stick, too. As far back as lSi i, a
law was passed in this state providing
that: If any judge or clerk of any elec
tion authorized by law or any other icr
son, shall wilfully and knowingly receive
sad place in the ballot box, or aid, i s
sist or assent to the placing m any bal
lot box any ballot, or paper purporting
to be a ballot, which is not legally voted
by a qualified voter at such election, or
shall illegally, willfully and fraudulently
abstract, or aid in, or assent to, the ab
straction from any ballot box any legal
ballot for the purpose of chmgiiig the
lawful result of any election, or shall in
any manner willfully influence or at
tempt to influence any person to do any
of the acts aforesaid, or to omit to do
any lawful act required of him in rela
tion to any election, or shall in any man
ner illegally, wilfully and fraudulently
change or attempt to change, or induce
any other person to change the true acd
lawful result of any election by any act
to be done either before, at tbe time of,
or after such election, by a wrong count
of the ballots, by changing the true re
turns or making a false return thereof,
or by changing the figures of the re
turns after they are made up cither be
fore or after the returns are duly made,
or in other manner except in pursuance
of law or the order of a court, every per
son offending against any of the provis
ions of this section, shall, upon convic
tion, be punished by imprisonment in
the penitentiary not exceeding five
years, or by imprisonment in the county
jail not less than three months, and by
a fine not leas than one hundred dollars,
or by both such tine and imprisonment,
and shall also be forever prohibited
from Toting at any election and Iruui
holding any office or position of trust or
-emolument under authority of this
stale, or any department thereof, or of
any county, city or town therein, either
by election or appointment, or as clerk
or employe. Two years thereafter, to
wit: In 1879, the legislature went stdl
further upon this subject, and inserted
a section of statute which provides that:
Any person who may be authorized by
law to receive, canvass or count the poll
books, tally lists or election returns of
any election authorized by law, who
shall willfully and knowingly receive,
canvass and count or assist therein, any
poll books, tally lists or election returns
which are fraudulent, forged, counter
feited, or shall falsely and fraudulently
make an incorrect and false count of
any election returns, with intent to de
feat a fair expression of the popular
will, and any person or persons whose
duty it may be to grant certificates of
-election, or in any manner declare- the
result of any election held by authority
of law, who shall grant a false certitl
cate, or declare the result of any elec
tion, baaed upon fraudulent, fictitious
or illegal votes or returns with intent to
defeat a fair expression of the popular
will, or to deprive any person duly elec
ted of his office, shall be deemed guilty
of a felony, and upon convictiorj, be
punished by imprisonment in the pen
itentiary for any term not exceeding five
years. There had, just prior to this
time, been some complaint that judges
and clerks of election bad been ex
tremely careless in casting up and cer
tifying to election returns from different
parts of the state and in fact certain
returns from precincts thus caielcssly
certified hadf been thrown out entirely,
in several cases thus' defeating certain
officers who had been surely electeduind
so the legislature at this '79 session
enacted another law, which provides
that: If the judges and clerks of any
election, or any of them, shall wilfully
neglect, refuse or omit to perform any
duty enjoined or required of them by
law with respect to Holding and con
ducting such election, receiving and
counting out the ballots, and making
proper return thereof, or shall inspect
or read any ballot voted, or disclose ti e
name or names of any of the candidates
or persons voted for by any voter at
such election, shall be deemed guilty cf
a misdemeanor, and punishable by
heavy fines, or imprisonment in the
county jail. These laws are all upon
our statute books yet, today, and are in
full force and operation throughout the
state of Missouri; and it behooves us
all, aa good citizens to seo to it altvajs
and everywhere that they are strictly
enforced and comDlieu with, lnis is
the way to have fair and satisfactory
elections and the only way. A free
ballot and a fair and impartial count is
the greatest safeguard to our Bepubli
can institutions, for without these none
of our other institutions or possessions
are safe. A popular election, honestly
conducted, embodies the very nmjesty
of true government. The safety of the
republic itself rests upon the integrity
of the ballot: upon the security of suff
rage to the citizen. To deposit a fraud
ulent vote is, to my mind, one of the
most reprehensible and inexcusable
crimes against constitutional liberty of
which a man can be guilty; but even
this I opine is no worse than that of ob
structing the deposit of an honest vote
by somebody else or the fraudulently
returning of an untrue account of the
votes that have been honestly cast. He
who (in any way) corrupts the ballot

Some Corn Crop Flarnrra.
The official crop report on corn is
variously interpreted. The statisti
cian of the Chicago Daily Trade lSulIe-
tin deduces an estimate of 1.241,000.000
bushels; the statistician of the Xew
York produce exchange, 1,303,000,000
bushels, and the Cincinnati Price Cur
rent. 1.385.0(10,000 bushels. Other esti
mates range as low as 1,100,000,000
bushels. Take your choice; but it may
be well to remember a pretty good
