What Can and Should' Be to Prevent Frauds, Done The Salem city election will be held Monday, December 7th, for mayor, aldermen, marehal, recorder aud treas urer . Thero Is no law requiring registra tion of voters, but a list of legal voters should be mado up In each ward. The Journal believes that n cor rect list of legal voters could bo mado up by tho citizens of each warU arid published, and a voter who Is not clearly and lawfully entitled "to voto should not bo allowed to cast his vote. DA canvass could bo mado by a dis interested person iu each ward of tho city, and tho actual bona fide resident voters enrolled. Tho completed roll of voters should be published, and names purged or added to It, of any who are not voters, or who are en titled to bo on tho roll. Then no person not on theso rolls should bb allowed to voto in any ward at tho coming city election. Who has a right to voto In each waid is a question of fact and law. The people who live In each ward and pay the taxes ought to bo Interested in knowing who aro tlio legal Voters In that ward. Tho candidates for city offices aro most Interested in securing their election. They nro little Inter- cstcd In an honest election except 89 far as It affects their own Interest, If the taxpayers want an honest flec tion they must sco to it that none but legal voters cast a ballot. If a man votes who has no right tp vote he should be prosecuted, and thoso who got lilm to vote should bo prosecuted All recall city elections where uearly as many votes wero cast on each side as thero were malo residents of tho ward. Colonizing, repeating and barn, lodging aro common practices at hotly contested city elections, "Let us have a pUro ballot at this election" is tho demand of citizens of nil parties. The Journal will conj tribute to this end. It has no candi dates to promoto by dishonest means. THE WABD DOUNDAKDiS. ' 1 From north limit of city to Mar lon street. 2 From Marlon to Court. 3 From Court to Ferry. 4 From Ferry to South limit. Tlie'.clty Is bounded by tho Willa mette rlvor on the west. The eastern boundary is net so plain but It is almost as follows: 1 From junction of Southern limit. Cross Btrcet, and S P. railroad track, thence along tho 'railroad ono block,' then cast on line of Depot addlton, thence along Turner road to 22 street to North Mill crcok, which com pletes the cast boundary. The Turner road has been removed bo often that tho above does not de fine tho limits very accurately, but tho limits are well known by tho resi-i dents along.thc boundary. ' PLAN OF ENROLLMENT, The Journal bclloycs a disinter ested enrollment of actual voters is necessary. This! enrollment should not be mado by candidates or political managers, but solely for the purpose of ascertaining who aro legal voters at tho coming oily election. It would cost about ten dollars for each ward, to make up u correct list of thc-vnters,glvlng names and residence and then have tho same copied and publicly posted. Achai; lenger would then havo to bo em ployed at each polling place armed with a roll of tho lawful voters und check them off , as they appear. Per sons attempting to voto should bo noted and either called on to prove their citizenship or else swear in their vote, when it could bo legally investi gated. In this way order and legality would be enforced In our elections, which are rapidly degenerating Into a farce. The Journal Bubmlta theso sug gestlons for what they aro worth and hopes that enough citizens will support some good plan to ascertain who are the lgal voters In this city, Highest of all m Leavening Powers Rol AKNMJUTEIY PUKE Death m An Oocri'Omve.
