ClM In not Perfect, But lie Vitlu. borne of Hit Opinion, tor the Nuke of ot Ihe ttood K.-HH.TI-. uf tbe New Law Pointed 'I, bis memorandum flhsdv.itli his approval of the amended ballot retorm bill Governor Uill kys. The people of the state are to be con- gratulated on having at Init secured the of a reasonable and constitu- tional electoral retorm law. The bill re- ceived the unanimous tupport of each branch of the legislature, and apparently reflects faithfully the demands of public lentiment. It in not claimed that it is a l-rfect measure. It must Ite conceded Aiat It many cumbersomu aud unnecessary provisions whit h might more wimsly have been eliminated, but as thu of the harmonization of tunny con- lictilig views, it presents as a whole a 'airly acceptable measure, i-apalde of ef- 'ecting some substantial aud practical re- 'orm. A reform law, however, no matter how ixceltent, canuot enforce iuself. To make til success it needs the support and en- couragement of both the political parties which have united in its enactment. WiLh- 'Ut the aid of a friendly aud intelligent public sentiment in its favoi it will fail to the purity and inflcpendeiiie in our so conndently predated by its riends aud no earnestly desired by cv cry citizen. It has been my earnest leavor during tbe pat-t three years to the of a law which, while preserving the purity of our elec- tions and promoting the independence of the voter, should not infringe upon the rights of citizens or i iolate con- stitutional guarantees. I have not be- lieved that reform consisted nieiely in making the exercise of the clei-live tntii- uhise dillicillt und cnniplicultfl I re- giinlcd it iis important tlmt I lie lo I be ballot box should be rnilile as free, plain and unobstructed to the honest elector its a simple and iiiactical statute could render it, and as the public- safety would permit. I have ste.idily op- posed every ell'ort to impose iinneet restrietious and impiactieaide reguiations upon our election system, which are not adapted to mir ftcc instil or would render our elections cnonnou.sh e.v- vexatious It is to be it-Lnvt- ted, however, that siuh ciidc.-uors have uulj imrtially successful In ihe in- terest of an honorable compromise of di- verse and with to agree upon a bill which .should something towards the minliral ion uf our elections, though it shall not be. wholly.satisfactory, 1 have felt consi rained to yield my view-as to seveial provi-imis which I must slili deem iiujieifett und e sainfi Servioe as the envelope I he illiterate voter may effectually mdi crate his by the iwe of tfce "vaster" ballot, and he is nM to perfei the uiiposstble task ef erasing MM which he read or making dta- criminations which he canmot comprehend A constitutional ballot, ia sacredly pre- served.

H cannot, I therefore, be said incase the elector use! that form of ballot that any other names of candidates appear upon it, alrave it, or under it, except those for whom he in- tends to vote In one sense, it may be urged that the i Vxclu-ively official still retained, llial IIMJ be so. but inunotheraudbroader view it isappareni that its peculiar chi I'cteristu-s have lieen largely destroyed or rMimm.ited. I am not disposed, however, to liiiR.'.h- about mere words er useless technicalities, it is immaterial what the form of ballot or the method of voting u, bill nmy nmy be called, lout; as the vital and essential rights of i lectors, for which I have always con- tended, arc substantially preserved and protccu-cl. During all the controversy of ihepKxt three jears I have invariably in- sisted upon the right of an elector to pre- 1 pure Ins ballot at hnme and to it with him to the polls audio vott it, and so as tins bill docs not materially Irmge upon tlmt right, I am content. I have never objected to any reasonable reg- ulations w have hern suggested, sur- Kiiiiiding the caMinguf H ballot, the honest pin po-c of vv Inch ha.s been the preservation of the s.-i ii-cy ol the ballot and the promo- tion ol the purity of elections; but I have opposed every effort, no matter how dis- guised or insidious it nmy have been. whu b b.is to undermine the prin- ciples of manhood suffrage and toestab- llsh restrictions nnrt qualifica- mil bv the constitution itself Believing that this bill does not fere wiib ihe. rights ot illiterate voters, I am saiKiu'ii its prov isions in that re- specl.

WASHISGTO.V, May S.-The house yester day debated and finally rejected the intei national copyright bill. Mr. Flower of Pennsylvania presented the joint resolution of the New York legis lature in favor of an increase of pay to letter carriers. Referred. Mr. Milliken of Maine preseuted, and the house adopted, the conference report the La Kayette, lud., public buildiug bill. The limit of cost is SKJ.OUO. The same action was takeu on the conference report on the Chester, PH., public buildiug bill. The limit of cost is lixed at iWI.Oyo. On motion of Mr O'Neill of Pcnnsyl vania a resolution was adopted setting apart Saturday, June H, for the delivery of eulogies upon tbe late Samuel .1. Randal! The house then resumed the considera- tion of the copyright bill. Mr. Ai_r_____ Illinois said that the ostensible purpose of bill was to extend the rights of Amer- ican authors to foreign authors. But the measure meant vastly more thau this. 1'he iues liable result of it would be to cre- ate a gigantic publishing monopoly, which w-ould raise the price of every book and Jeriodical printed iu this country and vould impose a tax on every reader of .looks, from the boy with his primer to the college professor with his scieutilic work. t would affect the reader of every caj, and even the reader of the rural news- paper would suffer. Congress could not afford to tax every American reader for he benefit of the foreign authors, who vere paid enough in their own country viihout invading American soil and tax- lig the American reader. The bill was opposed by Mr. Mills of exas who thought it would increase the, arice of tbe foreign authors' book and stop he wheels of civilization by making liter- .ture expensive. Mr. Carlisle supported the bill on gen- ral principles Mr. Ixidge of Massachusetts, speaking n support of the bill, said the argument f the opposition was that the bill wa-s go- ng to make literature dearer to the Amer- ican public. It would de nothing of the laudable desire to sltKe fit and afterwards incorporatef in the l.i.i-onhill of last jear, has been in eluded in this measure. It is 10 he regretted that a proper general resist i at nm of electors is not pro- vided for in the bill.

The question as to what interests or which political party has conceded the most in the enactment of this compromise measure, opens up an iinprulitubie cliscus- sioa.

While originally doubting the wisdom Of these j innovations, I have repeatedly stated iu my various uiessages that i entertained no objection thereto, piovided the i powers conferred were carefully guarded with necessnrj and siiiiable restrictions for the prevention of abuse it may well be doubted whether these provisions will effect all the reforms claimed in their haMorthat they will materially reduce I the expenses of candidates, but they are worthy of a fair trial.

The bill in no wise con- flicts with the tonnage bill also reported, as there is a provision in the bill that the steamships employed under it shall not re- ceive any other bounty or subsidy from the treasury of the United States. The strength of this bill in the matter of en- c-ouragemcnt to capital to invest in new lines, lies in the fact that a contract for ten years is provided for, also in the other fact that lines are ase line, are to re- khe whole thereof upon any of the oflicia] tallots which may be handed him. and vote The "paster" ballot answers every purpose of the "unofficial ballot" con- j to which they carry pay for returning theirs.

YOU GET THE WRONG SORT; THE RIGHT ONES ARE'MLLED PEARL TOPANOABE onlr by GEO, A. MACBETH t CO., PITTSBURGH, PA, kind; that was the basest assumption ever made. France had had an international copyright for years, ancf series of books were is-ned there for 5 cents and even cents a number, and these book.s the best literature of France; not the off-scouring of the literary gutters of other countries. It was the same with Germany. The ef- fect of this law would be to substitute for the works of France the works of Ameri- can authors. Speaking as one who had followed in a humble way the career of literature, he asked whether one could imagine that the American author would not desire a great circulation and the corresponding profit of cheap literature. It wa-s what the author would rather have, but no American publisher would attempt to print American books in any of tho.se cheap editions because he had to pay the Ameri- can a royalty aud the foreign author none. It was a direct discrimination against the American author. Aud the combination aud monopoly that were talked were they There was one lying dormant in the cheap reprints. If this measure were defeated that trust would leap into life. There wa-s one other appeal he wanted to make, and that was that congress should furnish to the reading public, to the girls and boys, to the young men and women of an impressionable age, books which were Americau books, Hot foreign books; the cheap book-s of France, dedicated, a Matthew Arnold had said, to the (Jodcles. of Lubricity; not the second English novels about dukes and duchesse aud lords and ladies; not books which eon mined ideas hostile to our institutions, bu Americau hooks that would breathe Aine icau and teju-h them to resjiect am admire American government and sot-jut y aud not a system of government and si> ciety wholly alien to them. Mr. Covert of New York and Mr But terworth of Ohio spoke in support of the bill. The vote was the n takeu on the thin reading of the bill and it was yeas, 98; nays, 13B. Before the announcement of the resul Mr. Brevkeiiridye ut Kentucky, who vot-ec. in the affirmative, changed his vote to the negative for the purpose of moving a re consideration. Mr. Hopkins moved to lay the motion ta reconsider on the table, and Mr. Adams o Illinois to take a recess. A vote was takeu on the recess motion and it was defeated but a-s the hour 4 o'clock had arrived the chair declared that under the rule th, house was in recess until 8 o'clock. The motion to reconsider and to lay that mo- tion on the table went over to be acted upon to-day. At the night session the house passed seventeen private pension bills. IN THI: SENATE.

The concurrent resolution heretofore of- ered by Mr. Dolph requesting the presi- dent to enter into negotiations with the ;oveniments of Great Britain and Mexico with a view to securing treaty stipulations for the prevention of the entry of Chinese laborers into the Cnited States was taken up and agreed to.

A meeting of the stockholders has been called to ar- range the difficulty. The statement, of the connection with the Bank of America is denied by the cashier, O. R.
