Excluded Prom the New York Polls Nxvr YORK Nov Francisco Chronicle work ing of the new election law in the various assembly districts shows that where tho law was allowed tobe in force it proved to be a success Intelligent voters had no dlfllculty in preparing and handing in their ballots There seemed to bo few delays which could riot hare been avoided by proper enforce ment of tho law though there were many abuses of it Two liberal decisions In court enabled many Tammany followers to havo apparently illegal votes cast This was due however to tho generally reckless favor shown by the oiliclala to the Tammany heelers and not to a legal interpretation of the law In some cases tho abuses sanctioned under the disability decision were scan dalous men openly swearing that they were physically unable to vote when their state ments were palpable and insolent perjuries A decision that ono man might have ten minutes for the preparation of each of his four ballots which ho is entitled to use aided tho plunderers but perhaps not ODO party more than the other Undoubtedly a great deal of electioneering at tho poils was done away with and in few cases were heelers permitted to enter the booths There was far less drunkenness around the polls and fewer divturbances than years The officials at tho voting performed their duties conscientiously and intelligently found little difficulty in Instructing and the voters In a great many election districts nearly the whole district voto was polled before one oclock and tbo new law received hearty praise Tammany tricks and schemes were resorted to on the whole remarkable success and it seems safo to say that very few men who were legally entitled to vote lost franchise thiouph any fault oftaw THE P BLOCKADE It Seriously Affects
