Ihroe Men Were NEW bept Herald the fgUowiuii The fiist election under the new ballo reform law held yesterday in the in corporatt-d village of Far Rockaway, in the of Hemphtead, Qaeeua county I he first quesuuu to ask about this mode of elect lug of officials is, Was absolute crecj The answer Is "No There uot absolute secrecy, and judg lag frout what took place at> Far llook away >etterdaj there novercau be Absolute secrecj In the next place, did this mode of elec- tion work to reduce or abolish the corrup- tion of otersc Emphatically The chajicu ol reducing ver; great In the third is it a more way of polling the By no meana Ti go back to the firbt question on secrecy voter after his ballot to one or more of the six men m the enclosure witl him and lo the inspectors But it may be said it was done through Ignorance The PUce Desorlbld. The polling place was in the villagi court house, a three story frame structure On eutciini; the ground floor from the street the writer found a wooden bar ar resting his further progress To the righ were six wooden boxes, one fifty voters, and there were SOO voters in the las election With the door having a spiral spring at- tachment aud the bottom of it two fee from the floor, these boxes looked sug and peculiar On the opposite side of the room there was hrst, on a table, the official ballots, numbered Beside them were ballot boxes How It Wu Done. The approached the ballot clerk who stood behind the desk, and gave his U the other end table srft the poll clerk The ballot clerk colled on the voter s name, and the poll clerk regis- tered it together with the number of the ballot which the ballot clerk called Then the went into the box with his twi tickets Now, it happened 1a that when a voter came out he had for gotten all about folding his ballot The constablej the inspector or the two con stables present to keep order all had an opportuuiij of seeing which ticket the man was ut it happened when the man had folded his two ballots he forgot which one he had intended to vote, and he wouk open one to make sure, for the persons named to see I saw many a man ask the iubpeeUji Lu fold the ticket foi him In these different ways it will ba seen that the law of secrecj was violated Bu' it may be assumed that practiqe will maki perfect for the occurs twice a Still, a certain class of men will neve learn Trouble with Folding. The trouble is w ith the folding. Even when they made the longitudinal fold which was the first one, they didnl lino' w hether to make the second fold to covt the description of the ballot or not This last fold had to be made below the stub and the stub contained the voter's number I counted within two hours four men who came out and threw their ballots down I was said they were disgusted with the fold ing business A Black Fje for Corruption. As to the reduction or abolition of cor ruption it is certamlj utterly impossibl for a candidate or a "captain" of a distrio to rely upon anj man to whom he has given monej If knows bsw to fold hib ticket and hands it thus to the chairman or person whose duty it IB to re- cene it, ffis an absolute secret Look at possible the purchaser o: votes has now no certainty of getting the worth of his monej Ihe law says the voter may bring a poster with him even for the whole ticket But that is no help or guide to the purchaser, for the voter may bnng it out with him again and the other party of the contract TJe none tlie wlsef A Slow Way of Voting. To answer m detail the third question Is it a more expeditious way of voting No, for here the law allows a man to re- main ten minutes in the booth preparing his ballot aud compels him to remain a' least three it Far Rockaway the lega time for was 319 minutes There were 300 votes cast, or nearly one per min ute Six meu at a time were allowed in, or one for each booth If each man took HIP full liroTf only thirty oix could bo an hour without deducting hall a minute for depositing the ballot I nder the new a oter can spoil three tickets 'Ihere are four tickets of allowed a oter ery few came back for the fourth set of tickets, but there were frequent calla for a second set The Law Not Strictly Observed.
