Letts Have Reform!
"There is one plan of conducting
?elections which in its very mime
. carries assurance of honesty?and
that is the Australian ballot sys
tem. With modifications it would
prove as satisfactory in South Car
olina as in any of tho score of
Mtates which have adopted it, and
it would bo as effective as any plan
in preventing tho rule of ignorance."
This suggestion is taken from an
editorial in Tho State of Sept. 16,
commenting on the status of Char
leston's municipal contest. It con
tains moro substantial reform and
offers hope of more real advance in
political methods than all that has
boon accomplished or attempted in

good points taken from tho New

The A ov RivTlSKit believes that
thorn has been littlo violence or in
tjmidalion und practically no bri
bery in the actual conduct of elec
tions in this Stale since 1878. The
Registration and Eight llox laws,
amounting in large measuro to an
educational! qualification, huvo bar
ricaded tho rule of Democracy
against the possibility of incursions
from negro Republicanism. This
is as it should have been; white
Huprcmacy Is tantamount to all
other political considerations in the
South and whatever fortifies it Is
in its OoWIlCe good.
Tilio adoption of tho system hero
urged does not threaten and could
jjfaft endanger it and in addition on ?
two preventive moasures above
mentioned could be incorporated
into it with no weakening ot their
Hut while the ballot in South
Carolina is and has been free in
the sense that there has been an
absence of open-faced fraud and
coercion, there have been frequent
murmurs that the will of tho peo
ple has not been expressed. With
in the Democracy, these have
brought ubout tho almost total sup
planting of county and congres
sional conventions by primaries
and it is about assured that tho
day of State conventions is over.
In tho unpleasant campaign of last
yenr, it was tho past adherence to
tho convention system that gnvo
pluusiblo excuse, (not foundation)
to tho cry that tho Stato had not
had genuino Democratic govern
ment since 1870. While th6 estab
lishment of tho primary plan bus
been a tremendous stridu towards
purer Democratic or popular meth
mothods, it has not made the pop
ular voice A truo unerring express
ion of tho people's unbiased will.
Those who have watched our pri
maries know that In them tho cau

with two or tlireo In a secret place
to name tho ticket and stock tho

full of whispering insinuations, still
is king; and tho spectacle of one

Under the Australian system the
contests ifi our politics would still
bo fought out within tho confines
of the white man's party, and the
ADVKRTISKR lor one, is convinced
that it would purge them of nearly
all their dirty accompaninicutB.
It would at least settle tho hash
of tho boss and ring master who

byways. After all a tree ballot

it is right!"
The Australian liallot System.
What is termed the Australian
Ballot System, tho professed pur
poses of which are to secure tho
secrecy of tho ballot and provont
tho intimidation or corrupting ol
the voter, was practically intro
duced into tho United States in
1888 ">y its adoption by law in the
Stato of Massachusetts and tho
city of Louisville, Ky.
Tho substantial requirements of
the Australian system are as fol
lows: Ballota are to bo provided at
public expense; nono but these
ballots uro to bo used; on thorn are
to bo printed the names of all can
didates who aro nominated either
by conventions or petitions a short
period prior to tho election; the
ballots aro to bo distributed only
by sworn ballot clerks, at the polls,
to voters, and for actual and imme
diate use in voting; the voter is al
lowed live minutes in which to re
tiro into a booth conveniently ar
ranged, where ho secretly marks
his choice ol candidates upon the
face of tho ballot, or, if ho prefers,
writes the names of candidates of
his own nomination in place of
thoso whose names aro already
printed; having done this he pro
ceeds directly to the ballot-box, and
without exposing tho faco of the
ballot, or communicating with any
one, deposits the ballot a) his vote,
For tho benefit of the blind and il
literate, such a voter is permitted
to select one of tho two ballot
clerks, who, under oath of fidelity
and secrecy, assists him to mark
his ballot. No person can peddle
or offer any ballot to another per
son within ono hundred feet of any
polling place on the day of election,
if any person in preparing a ballot
spoils it, he may successively ob
tain others, one at a time, not ex
ceeding 'three In all, upon return

thus returned must be immediately
cancelled and preserved by tho
The Rhode Island Ballot Reform
Association, while advocating the
adoption of the Australian system,
issued a statement of the advan
tages which it claimed for the sys
tem, and they wero presented thus:
1. A .vecrct ballot, east as pro
posed in tIiis plan,'interposes the
most effectual preventive of the
bribery of the voter ever dovlsed.
2. A secret ballot secures the vo
ter against the coercion or undue
solicitation of others, and enables
the most dependent elector to vote
as his conscience dictates, In per
8. Excuse for assessment of can
didates is taken away. A poor

gagements are .such that I havo not
timo to call thu attention of medi
cal profession to tho cases that
might ho collected from the mass
that have accumulated during
the thirty eight (38) years of
constant use of the waters of youi
Lithiu Spring. The waters of
the Idthla Spring are odorless and
colorless, free from suUnary taste,
rather palatable. When* taken in
a considerable quantity they do
not nauseate, purge or produce
any feeling of discomfort. I lind
from an analysis of the witters they
contain cloride sodium, carbonate
potash, carbonate soda, carbonate
Itthia, carbonate iron and sulphate
magnesia. The waters act directly
upon tlio mucous coatOb of the
stomach anil alimentary canals
they are powerfully alterative
j and tonic. They are soothing to
I inflamed or irritated surfaces.
They react upon the blood, ehung
ingm it from acid to alkaline.
In indigestion, catarrh of stom
ach and gastralgia, suppplcmcntcd
I with u proper diet they are a cer
I tain cure. Tho action upon the
kidneys is marked. The sodium,
potasii, soda and llthia are tho best
solvents of uric acid, all calculi of
an acid character, whether blloary
or clptic aro steadily dissolved, I
am confldent that the profession
j will find it very useful in eases
