The Constitutional Convention
has adjourned over the hot months
and the members have gone home
to mingle with tbeir constituents.
The new constitution is yet in an
incomplete form, although a vast
amount of work has been expended
on it/ It is said, however, that it
can be finished in a few weeks’ hard
work ifter the Convention re-assem
bles. From present appearances
the Convention intends to submit to
the people almost an entirely new
Constitution, instead of a few
amendments to the old, and in this
matter, we think, have erred. There
are too many changes proposed at
one time to obtain a majority in fa
vor of' all of them, since each
change from the old will encounter
some opposition, which, when com
bined, will make a formidable pow
er. The people called the Conven
tion into existence for the purpose
of correcting some abuses of spe
cial legislation, and it has gone
much further than was anticipated,
and proposed some changes that
will not likely be popular.
The article on Flection, Suffrage
and Representation, as it passed
second reading, modifies the present
law materially. It requires every
to have been a citizen at least
thirty days before election. Now
there is no limitation, and foreign
born persons can be naturalized up
to the very day of election. This
change will doubtless be beneficial,
and do away with that fruitful
source of evil, fraudulent naturali
zation papers. The thirty days
will give time to discover and pre
vent frauds of this character. The
time of residence of the voter in
the election district ha& also been in
creased from ten to thirty days, and
the payment of the tax required
sixty days before the day of elec
tion, instead of on the same day as
now. The change of time of resi
dence will tend to make more diffi
cult those colonization frauds, as it
will vastly increase the expenses of
carrying them on, but the limita
tion of sixty days for the payment
of the tax will be a great inconveni
ence to some, and is a weak and un
popular feature of the amendment.
The secret ballot clause, although
changed considerably its
original form, on second reading,
still is yet objectionable. We would
'throw around the ballot box all
the safe guards needed to se
cure a free and independent bal
lot, but this change destroys
the absolute secrecy of the ballot
and therefore tends to restrict its
free exercise. The original form
required the ballot to be endorsed
by the voter and was rejected on
second reading because the endorse
ment would destroy the secrecy of
the ballot, but we think the Same ob
jection, though not quite so strong,
can be made to the present clause as
amended. It the ballots are num
bered and the numbers correspond
with the numbers of the electors on
the polls, what is to hinder the
publication of an elector’s vote, es
pecially if the knowledge is politi
cally important? There is one
more safe guard, and an important
one which will meet with more fa-
Tor. The section provides that the
Court may, upon the petition of a
certain number of citizens, setting
ibrth that there is danger of fraud in
some election districts appoint over*
seers composed of men of different
political parties, who will settle
points that may vise in
the election board, and thus prevent
corrupt election officers from re
ceiving illegal votes.
The above are the changes pro
posed to guard the ballot box. We
do not think that the change, as a
whole, is much improvement upon
our present law. The security of
the free ballot depends on the peo
ple in each election district in any
The Spanish Republic seems to
be in a state of chronic disorder,
and late news from Spain does not
afford much encouragement for the
friends of democracy to hope that
the situation of affairs will be much
better. Telegraph dispatches indi
cate that in all the departments of
Government and throughout the pro
vinces there is great confusion of
ideas and uncertainty as to the fu
ture. We are unable to keep" np
with the many changes in the Min
istry. New ones are formed then
remodeled with such rapidity that
only those familiar frith the current
events in Spain can be expected to
fnlly understand them in all their
relations, so as to be able to predict
their sequences, In all the confu
sion it seems reasonably clear, how
ever, that "Republican ideas of va
rious shades are combatting with
the old order of things and have
gained a temporary advantage
thus far. The Carlist re-action is
rather forced by ambitious med
dlers, and no doubt has a powerful
support outside of Spain. Progress
never goes backward, and we are
inclined to believe that whether
Senor Pi-y-margall is successful in
forming a new ministry or not, or
whether, when formed, it possesses
the confidence ol the people, the
Republic will not die in Spain, for
it has inherent strength and the
Carlist movement must yet be made
to feel it. We can hardly realize
the mixed struggle for the suprema
cy that is going on there. The va
rious antagonistic elements that are
in the struggle—but really there are
only two sides—the old and new or
der. The Republic has been and is
in possession of power, and not by
accident either, bat through the ex
pansion and grofrth of Republican
ideas among the people. Shall its
career suddenly be arrested and its
power destroyed ? A reaction may
take place, but it will be temporary.
Old ideas are not dislodged in a
day, nor will they yield up the scep
ter without a desperate effort to re
tain it When an appeal to arms
is taken, and the combat deepens,
those ideas . that accord with the
progressive tendencies of other na
tions will usually be. found to be su
perior and victorious. We contin
ue hopeful and await the perma
nent establishment of the Spanish
Republic. Republicanism is cer
tainly io the auyiiot only here but
on the Continent, and old things are
becoming new there as well as here.
Legislative Conference of
this district, including the counties
ot Butler, Beaver and Washington,
met at the Monongahela House,
Pittsburgh, on Wednesday of last
week. The following gentlemen
composed the Conference: Capu

Crawtord, and Capt. Henry Tim

in an interchange of views, the af
ternoon was devoted to work, and
resulted in the nomination of Hons.
Samuel J. Cross, of Beaver; A. L.
Campbell and David McKee, of
Butler; Jonathan Allison ot Wash
ington. We are sorry that Capt.
J. K. Billingsly of Washington
could not have been nominated also,
but adherence to established rules
made it impossible, and he will
have to wait. The ticket nominat
ed is a good one, and we have no
doubt will receive the hearty sup
port of the entire district.

The action of the Republican Conven
tion in refusing to require candidates for
the legislature to pledge themselves to give
their views on the questions of railroad

shows clearer than ever that Billy Carr,
Sanford’s agent, controls the majority of
the Convention. This gives strength to
the tax-payer’s independent movement.

state, that if you expect your committee

canvass, see to it that you select none but

Beaver Tempecance
Union. —The Officers and Boacdnf Man
agers of the Beaver County Temperance
Union, at a meeting held in Beaver Falls,
July Ist, decided that the facts necessitat
ed the calling of a meeting of the county
society for tbepurpose of advising togeth
er as to the best and wisest course to be
pursued whereby evil disposed persons
who persist in doing violence to the will
of the large majority of the gobd citizens
of this county as expressed at the ballot
box last spring on the question of prohibi
tion, may be brought to justice. The fact
is apparent to all that many of the -grog'
shops continue to sell as heretofore* and
that both in this and from adjoining coun
ties sell and hank about our streets both
malt aud distilled liquors, and agents of
dealers from the cities frequently visit our
citizens to solicit and receive their orders
for liquors, clearly in violation of both
law and good order.
The "Union” will meet at the M. E.
Church in Rochester, on Tuesday, July
2t9th, 1873, # at 10 o’clock, a. m. We invite
all friends and lovers of right and their
fellow men to meet with us, for now is
the time to strike and save the cause of
Prohibition from being trampled upon by
these law defying beings who would rob
us of all that is dear to. us, and give us
instead all the miseries and sorrows known
to man. Pastors of the Christian church
are requested to present this to their
charges and urge their attention, that we
may have a full turnout of the temper
ance strength and adopt such measures
and plans as may best secure the end we
all seek. Prohibition of the liquor traffic.
