ELECTORAL KEFOMI. Proportional Representation by tho Freo Vote. Address of Hon. Charles R. Buch ALEW, BEFORE THE SOCIAL SCIENCE AS.S0CIATION,PlIILAr)ELritIA,TUES day Evening, October 2.3, 1870. Gentlemen of the Association :I de- siro my remarks to-night to bo under stood ns mudo in continuation of what was paid and written by mo on former occasions on the subject of Electoral Re form. In u speech in this city on tho 10th of November, 18G7, in a speccli in tho Senate on tho 11th of July of tho saraoyear, and In tt report from tho Scnato Couimittcoou representative ro form, 2d of March, lSGD, I discussed tho Freo Vote in its proposed applica tion to Federal Elections and stated tho general arguments in favor of its adop tion. I do not propose to go over again tho ground covered by thoso speeches and by that report, but to present ad ditional viow-, tho product of further reflection upon this question of reform, and to msntlou tho steps which havo been taken In this Stato and in other States, looking toward tho submitting of tho plan of reformed voting to prac tice the free vote. Tho Freo Volo may bo applied to elections wlienover two or moro per sons nro to ho chosen together to tho same offleo for tho samo term of ser vice, and it consists in allowing tho vo ter to distribute his votes among can didates as ho hhall think fit, or to con centrate them upon one. It is hero as sumed that tho voter shall havo tho samo number of votes ns tho niimberof persons to bo chosen, and that tho can didates highest in voto shall bo declared elected. ITS EFFECT ON SINGLE ELECTIONS. It will bo observed that the freo voto is Inapplicable to tho election of ttsinglo person j it can bo applied only whero two or moro aro to bo chosen. Rut it will boa great mislnko to assume that it will havo no effect upon singlo elec tions becau-o it cannot bo applied to them In form and directly. Duo reflec tion and a careful examination of tho subject will convlnco any Intelligent man any man well acquainted with tho practical workings of our political system that whilo lis direct operation must bo confined to plural elections Its indirect effects upon slnglo ones will bo very great, and very.salutaryalso,when- over It shall como to ba established. For tho advocates of tho now plan as sert with confidence nnd upon fair grounds of reason, that it will securo absolutely to political parties tfielrjust representation In nil ordinary cases of Presidential, Congressional, Legislative and other olectlons to which It shall bo applied, and will therefore greatly wea ken tho tendency toward violent and corrupt party action In tho elections to which It shall not apply, Tho election of Governor in a Stato Is mainly inter esting because of tho inllueiico which tho result will oxert upon tho next elec tions In the Stato for Presidential elec tors, members of Congress nnd mem bers of tho Legislature ; such nn elec tion Is hotly contested, money isoxpend od upon It and nil possiblo means to control It brought into nctivo play, bo cause elections which aro to follow will bo poweiftilly lnfleuced If not deter mined by tho Issuo of tho contest. In liko manner and for tho samo reason other elections of singlo oillcors aro as bailed by ovil Influences nnd becomo degraded and of ovll report. In my opinion, our remedy, nnd n very effectu al ono, will be to mako nil our Congres sional mid Legislative elections plural mid then apply to them and to PresI dentlal elections tho freo voto or some other device by which Just representa tion of tho peoplo shall bo secured. Then Gubernatorial nnd other single elections will bo purified nnd improved; they will no longer exert any consider able, much less controlling, influence upon Federal or Legislntlvo elections and will not therefore Invito or provoko thoso corrupt aud evil Influences by which they aro now assailed'. BLOOMSBURG, PA., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, ITS OBJECTS JUST 11EPBE3ENTATI0N AND l'URE ELECTIONS, Two capital objects aro sought to bo accomplished by tho freo voto conild cred ns nn instrument of reform i I'M, tho Just rcpresentntlon of tho peoplo in government, nnd Second, tho purlflca tlon of popular elections. How to securo the proportional rcpro ecntallou of political parties or interests In government Is certainly n question of hljli Importanco and wo havo reason to rejolco that It is now receiving ear nest nttcntion In our own country nnd in Europe. Wo must nil ngreo that tho majority vote ns I shnll call tho old plan to which wo havo been nccustometl Is both instifllcicnt and unjust In tho caso of many elections to which It Isnn plied, nnd that in unchecked operation It Is positively pernicious nnd hurtful. Observe, I nm not speaking of tho ma jority or plurality rulo of elections which In its proper application to re turns Is u necessity, but of tho majority vote, oi mat instrument of oppression ny which government Is mado unsntls- inctory uecatiso it Is mado unjutt. Tho law has said to tho citizen, "You shall distrlhuto your votes singly among candidates although by doing so you will loso them nil nnd stand deprived of all voice In tho government You and your neighbor shall ho made to struggle constantly, each to deprivo ino oilier of liis equitable right In tho very attempt to maintain his own And if you shall not choose to voto in this exact manner nnd to grasp nt moro than belongs to you, you shall not voto at all; you shall stand aido disfran chised and ignored." No wonder that our peoile,instructed by experience and scourged by many evils, arti beginning to complain of tho law and to Inquire whether thero Is not somo possiblo rem cdy for electoral Injustice somo plan of nmendmont by which nil tho peoplo can have their votes counted and ob tain by them appropriate power nnd influence in tho government. Yes, there are remedies for this in Justico mid ono of them I advocato to night; a remedy convenientof nppllca tlon and effectual for all our purposes of reform. Rut It is not proposed in antagonism to other plans of reform, nor as a finality in tho art of govern meut. It may stand simply for what it Is n good, useful, workable plan for tho improvement of elections and for securing justico to tho wholo body of our electoral population Tho second great object of reformed voting tho purification of elections Invites to a moro elaborato exposition of an existing ovil nnd of tho remedial character of tho now plan, than my spaco and time will permit ; but I can not pas3 it wholly unnoticed. Certainly when you shall cheapen elections by taking away tho motivoor tho main motivo for spending money upon them, you will purify them nlso. Thoy will bo cleansed and elevated In character by being mado cheap and Inexpensivo to parties and candidates who aro now compelled to expend monoy upon them profusely as tho Indlspenstblo condition of success. Now beyond all question tho freo voto will cheapen elections. It will tako away from parties nlmost entirely two powerful motives which now operato upon them agreed for un just representation and n fear of unjust disfranchisement by tho conjoint oper ation of which desperato and expensive struggles nro produced. When a party shnll bo mado secure In Its Just repre sentation by its own rotes it need not buy a majority in tho corruption mark et ns a mcasuro of necessary defence. When It cannot by tho aid of corrupt votes rob tho opposite party and take to Itself more than Us Just sharo of representative power, It will becomo frugal in its expenditures ond honora ble, in its conduct. Thus tho freo voto destroys or checks corruption by taking away tho motives which produce it, and In this respect vindicates itself as a most powerful instrument of moral Improvement and progress. THE APPLICATION 01' THE FREE VOTE. Tho freo voto Is proposed for applica tion to tho following elections : 1. To tho choice of Electors of Presi dent nnd Vlco President of tho United States. 2, To tho eliolco of members of Con gress. 11. To tho choico of Senators and Rep resentatives to tho legislatures of tho sovoral States. In Pennsylvania It should bo further applied to tho election of tho following officers : 1. Judges of tho Supremo Court. 2. Law Judges of nil Common Pleas and District Courts composed of moro than ono law judge. 3. Associate Judges of counties. 1. Aldermen nnd Justices of the Peaco in wards, boroughs nnd town ships. C. County Commissioners nnd County Auditors. C. Directors for tho Poor for counties or for Poor districts wlienover their election shall bo authorized. 7. Councllmen of cities nnd bor oughs. 8. Assessors of tnxes wlienover two nro to bo chosen, nnd Assistant Asses sors trlcnnlally. 9. Constablos whonover two aro to bo chosen. 10. Supervisors of roads ntul Overseers of tho Poor In, townships. 11. Borough nnd Township Auditors. 12. Directors nnd Controllers of Com mon Schools In nil tho School Districts of tho Commonwealth. Tho now plan should also bo applied throughout tho country to stockholder elections" for tho choico of officers of In. corporated companies. Ono of tho amendments to tho Illinois constitu tion, ndopted In July last, provides, that in all elections In that fctuto for Directors or Managers of incorporated companies tho freo voto shall bo allow ed, so that stockholder minorities In such companies may nlways bo repre sented lu their management, and abuse nnd wrong bo detected or prevented, And nil corporations rcqulronud should havo this fundamental und most salu tary check lu their constitution. Rut thero Is still another application of tho freo vote, heretofore unnoticed, which I uellovo to bo in tho highest do grco important ; I menn Us application to primary elections or to tho nomina tion of candidates. In fact when re form shall hnvo accomplished Its work In tho legal elections and shall havo In vlgorntcd nnd purified them, it will bo required more than ever In tho primary ones. For'ns all 'nominated candidates will commonly bo elected under tho new plan, their nomination must bo mado upon sound principles nnd with nil possiblo guards ngnlnst corruption nnd abuse. But hero it is ovldent that tho samo remedy which will Improve tho ono class of elections can bo used to Improvo tho other also ; In other words, that tho freo voto can often bo applied directly to tho nomination of candidates nnd always to tho choico of delegntcs to nominating bodies. GIvo It such nppli cation freely, to tho fullest possiblo ex- tent, and you will find that you havo reached and mastered tho ultimate dif ficulty In tho way of electoral reform. CONCERNING THE USE OF FRACTION AL VOTES THEIR UTILITY AND CONVENIENCE. Iii tho Bloomsburg act fractlonnl votes nro nllowcd when three, four or fix persons nro to bo chosen, nnd thoy may bo allowed with ndvantago In other eases, Most commonly they will bo convenient and deslrablo to majori ties rather than minorities, and thero can bo no question that their nllowanco will popularizo tho free voto, render Its reformatory action moro effectual and facilitate Us extension generally, to popular and corporate elections. Frac tional votes havo been used with an proval many times In recent local elec tions in Pennsylvania, they havo nlso been used in national political convon tions for tho nomination of candidates for President and Vico President of tho United States, nnd their uso will bo found essential to tho smooth-working of representative elections under tho amended constitution of Illinois. It is evident that when a voter hits thrco votes and shall dosiro to bestow them equally upon two candidates, ho must divulo ono of his votes ; in other words, in order to give ono voto and a half to each of two candidates ho must break ono of his votes into two equal frac tious. When four persons nro to bo chosen nnd tho majority of tho voters shall desiro to voto for three candidates, (giving nn equal support to each), frac tions of one-third should bo created ; that is, each majority voter should li vido ono 6f his votes into thrco equal parts, so that ho can glvo ono voto nnd ono-thlrd to each of threo candidates. And when six persons aro to bo chosen nnd the voter shall desire to voto for four, ho must, (in order to render them an equal support), divldo two of his votes Into four halves and glvo ono voto and a half to each of tho four can didates ho voles for. Somo other numbers Involved in elections nro less ndapted than tho num bers three, four nnd six for tho appli cation of fractional voting ; but many others aro as much so, and nearly nil admit of such application to n useful extent. For instance, tho number flvo admits of tho giving of two and a half votes to each of two candidates, or ono and one-fourth to each of four ; and tho number nino admits of ono nnd a-half votes to each of six candidates or two nud one-fourth to each of four. But as It seems necessary or highly deslrablo on, grounds of convenience to avoid fractions of which tho numerator ex ceeds unity or one, wo cannot very well divide flvo votes equally among threo candidates, nor seven ntnong flvo, &c. There is, however, moro than ono re source in such cases of difficulty. Terms of official servlco may bo nrranged with roferenco to tho now plan of voting, or tho hotly of electors in n Stato or dis trict, united by party association, may divldo themselvoj for tho purposo of casting votes. Tako tho caso of a court of flvo judges, chosen for ten vear terms; Instead of electing them all together it would bo well to electa part of them every fifth year, say two at ono time and three at another, and so on at successive quinquennial elections. And so to n court of seven judges, four might bo chosen nt ono tlmoand threo at an other. Again, tako tho caso of a Stato entitled to eight members of Congress iu which tho politlu.il miijority Is enti tled, by Its numbers, to elect flvo. In n party convent'on or by u Stato commit tee it might bo easily arranged that whilo tho groat mass or principal part of tho majority voters or tho Stato should voto for four candidates, (giving two votes to each), n district containing one-fifth of their strougth should bo set olT or set ap.trt In which tho voters of tho parly should glvo all their votes to ono candidate. And so In Pennsylvania, entitled to twenty four members of Congress, nnd whero political parties aro nearly equal In strougth, either party that supposed it self in tho majority could voto for n thirteenth member by n District voto, whilo tho general mass of its voters in tho Stato would voto for twelvo. No law would bo necessary to nuthorlzo thoso nnd other llko arrangements; thoy would bo mado by tho voluntary notion of parties wlienover their expediency becatno evident. In fact, by tho means mcnt!oncd,and by others, tho uso of fractional votes can bo dispensed with altogether in our plon of electoral reform, and wholo votes nlono retained. But I would not dlsponso with them in nil cases, but would nuthorlzo them whenever tholr utility shall bo evident and their lucon venionco slight. At present I am pro pared to say that I would allow frac tional votes of oue-hnlf, ouo-thlrd, or ono-fourth, whenever their uso shall bo necessary to enable votors to glvo an equal support to. tho candidates thoy voto for under tho now plan. Tho counting of fractions In making up election returns Is a very simple per. formaneo ns shown nt recent elections In this Stato. Fractious being ulways attached to wholo votes on tho tlckots may oven bo disregarded In scoring down votes upon tho tally-paper nnd bo ndded at tho end of tho score. For 1870. COL. Instance, when two candidates boon voted for as follows ! John Jones, 1 votes, William Brown, 1 votes, havo tho first ticket drawn from tho box may bo copied upon tho tally-paper, (omit ting tho word "votes,") nnd then that nnd succeeding tlckots marked down In scores of flvo toward tho right accord ing to tho common practice. To tho sum of tho scores for a candldato fifty per centum will bo ndded at tho end of tho lino. Thus If 80 such tlckots havo bcon voted, tho count for each candl dato will bo carried out-80 plus 10 equals 120 votes. In this enso tho figures "1" attached to a candidate's name becomo n sign of value for tho strokes which follow,aud may bo conveniently enclos ed in n clrclo with a pen. If wholo votes nlono shall bo voted on other tick ets for tho samo candidate, they should bo scored on a scpnrato line nbovo or below tho other nnd bo carried out nnd added at tho proper placo on Mio right. THE FILLING OF VACANCIES. Upon n careful rending of speeches mndo by John Bright In 1807, nt Man chester, nt Birmingham, and in tho House of Commons, in hostility to cu mulative voting nnd to tho limited voto ns embodied In tho Cairns nmendmont to tho Reform Bill, I becnino thorough ly convinced of tho utter weakness of all possiblo objections to minority rep resentation (as it was then called.) A first-class man, laboring with great ear nestness on repeated occasions, was un nblo to mnko good a singlo objection to reform, nnd was compelled in tho final debate on tho 8th of August, to plant himself upon purely conservative ground ontl Insist upon tho novelty of tho proposition boforo tho House. So far ns.1 can remember, there was but ono point mado by him which reached tho dignity of appearing plausible, or which seemed to call for explanation or reply. That wns that tho now plans wore defcctlvo in regard to tho filling of vacancies tlmt might happen pend ing terms of ofllclal servlco. Supposing, for instance, that tho scat of a member of Parliament from n triangular Dis trict a District of, threo members should becomo vacant from any cause pending his term, neither tho cumula tive or limited vote could be applied at n special election to tho choico of his successor. I admit the fact in tho caso supposed, but I deny tho objection based upon It. That objection is wholly mis conceived and will disappear upon be ing submitted to examination. Mr. Bright did not desire tho third member for Birmingham to be taken by tho Tories, nnd therefore opposed reform; but his best point liko all his others, was unworthy of his genius nnd his fame. Party interest misled him as it has often misled other men of equal distinction and mental power. Now as the question of tilling' casual vacancies, under reformed voting, lias nover been discussed in this country, nor, so far as I know, been examined abroad (unless in connection with schemes of representation which do not como within tho scopo of my present discourso) I shall proceed tospeak upon it briefly, and shall incidentally dis pose of tho Bright objection just men tioned. Iu the first plnco I havo to remark that if hereafter casual vacancies shall bo filled by popular election and by tho mnjority vote, wo shall bo in no worse condition than weoro now; woshali sim ply continue, ns to such occasional clec tions, the existing rulo. In tho next placo It is to bo considered that whenever two or moro vacancies shall exist at the samo tlmo, tho freo or limited voto can bo applied to an election held for tho purposo of filling them. Again, it is ovident that most vacancies that will happen, will bo of majority members or officers nnd that tho application of tho majority voto to tho choico of suc cessors will bo perfectly proper and in complete harmony with our plan of re form, But I will takotho comparatively raroor unusual caso of a minority vacan cy standing alone, or tho still rarer caso of two or moro such vacancies (without majority ones) oxlstlng at tho samo time. How shall such minority vacan cies bo flllod ? I answer, they can bo filled and filled properly either by elec tion or appointment, lu many if not most cases nppolntmeiits mny bo mado for unexpired terms, but wlienover pos siblo In any caso an appointment should bo mado from miiong tho voters who shall havo voted for tho officer or person whoso placo Is to bo filled. As an illus trntion I will read tho provision cod cernlng tho filling of vueaiicioj con tained ju tho County Commissioner bill introduced Into tho Senate of Pennsyl vania at Its last session. After provi ding for tho election of threo County Commissioners and threo County Aud itors, resppctivoly.for threo year terms, tho fourth section provides as follows: " Sec. 1. Vacancies in tho ofllco of County Commissioner or County Audi tor occurring otherwlso than by tho ex piration of n regular term of servlco, or occasioned or continued by n failure to elect under this net, shall bo filled by nppolntmeiits to bo mado by tho Courts of Quarter Sessions of tho Peaco of tho several counties in which such vacan cies shall occur, which appointments shall bo for tho remaining part or tlmo of any unexpired term to bo filled. In tho tilling of any such vacancy tho fol lowing rules of selection shall bo ob served, to wit: First, Tho appoint ment shall bo mado from among tho qualilled electors of tho county who shall havo voted for tho Commissioner or Auditor whoso placo is to bo filled, nutl Second, Tho Judges of tho Court by whom tho appointment Is to bo mado shall recelvonnd consider any respect ful petition from qualified electors of tho county who shall havo voted for tho Commissioner or Auditor whoso placo Is to bo filled, and shall appoint such m persons so recommenticu as snail, in their opinion, bo most acceptablo to tho greater part of tho electors by whom tho Commissioner or Auditor whoso placo is to bo filled wns chosen." Tho power of nppolntment for tho filling of vacancies may bo variously lodged according to tho nature of tho caso or tho character of tho ofllco to ho filled, but no matter whero lodged it should nlways bo exercised under n rulo of selection similar to that con tallied in tho bill Just cited, so that tho just division of ofllces between parties Biiau uo nt oil times maintained. MKAf - . . VflT.. YYYTV . . XTn nr J -'. i via. Liukl I - nil. .ill I But when an appointment cannot well bo mndo to fill n vacancy on ac count of tho magnitude of tho office, tho long durntion of tho unexpired term, or becnuso it is difficult In tho given caso to select u proper appointing power, a popular election to All tho va cancy may bo provided for. In such caso I would call only upon tho voters who had previously yotcd for tho officer or person whoso placo is to bo filled and would conflno tho right of choico to them. Tho other voters of tho constit uency or district ought not to partlcl pato in such election for ovident reasons and should bo oxcludod. But at this point nn objector may say that it will bo difficult to distinguish tho proper voters from others nnd to confine tho electoral prlvllcgo to them. I do not think so. Tho party position of most men Is fully known In their own olec tlon districts, and in doubtful cases tho right of challengo will guard against Improper votes. Tho official lists of vo ters taken down at a former election can bo referred to for the proventlon of fraud, and any ono ofleringto voto may bo calloci upon to provo by his own oath- or uy other testimony that ho voted nt such former olection for tho officer or person whoso placo is to bo filled. Bo sides, as thero will bo no struggle be tween political parties for a majority at such elections, tho most fertllo of till causes of fraud will bo wholly excluded from them. In fact when there shall bo but ono candldato atsuch an election, (which will hi tho ordlnnry caso) thero will bo no motivo nt nil for fraud nnd Its oxisten:o will bo rendered Impossi ble. But I am quite certain that when tho freo voto or some similar plan of reform shall como into general use, secret vot ing will bo entirely dispensed with be cause it will no longer be necessary to tho protection of the voter against In timidation nud other forms of improp er influence. Tho ballot may remain to us but It will bo an open one proba bly in tho slip-ticket form-and n lnrgo nmount of mystery, intrigue, deception nnd meanness will bo expelled from elections. And, by numbering tho bat Iota when voted, or by other means easily applied, it will bo possible to provo afterwards beyond dispute for whom nuy voter cast his votes. Possibly wo may como nt last to a plan of regis tering votes which will still moro com pletely or conveniently enable us to classify voters and dotermino for whom they voted. At nil events, by dlspens lug with tho secret voto wo shnll possess greater facilities than now for tho prop er polling of votes at special elections. LOCAL USE OF REFORMED VOTING. Tho freo voto was first used In an elec tion at Bloomsburg, in this State, on tho 12th of April last, when six persons were to bo chosen members of tho town Council for tho cnsulncr year. Tbo re sult wns that threo Domocratsnnd threo Republicans were elected. It was again used in tho samo town on tho second Tuesday of tho present month in tho choico of Constables, Assessors, Assis tant Assessors, School Directors and Town Auditors. Altogether, ntthotwo town elections, seventeen officers havo been choson under tho new plan and they aro all good mon and aro fairly di vided between parties. Not one person among the wholo six hundred voters of tho town Is known to havo expressed himself against tho change, or is believ ed to be desirous of returning to the old and unfair majority voto. In short,tho change has been completely satisfactory and is strongly endorsed by public opinion. Directors of tho Poor for tho Bloom Poor District in Columbia county (tho district containing ono thousand two hundred voters) wcro also chosen at tho October election under tho now plan and in a sntisfactory manner. Tho ma jority elected two nnd tho minority ono. In tho county of Northumberland, in Sunbury, Northumberland nnd other boroughs, tho new plan was also tried nt tho recent election (principally in tho choice of Councilmen) nud with good and satisfactory results. Certain advantages of tho now plan not foreseen, or not foreseen distinctly, appcareu in tneso local elections. In tho first place, they showed that tho number of candidates at an election will bo greatly reduced by tho new plan; that lu most cases no more persons will run than can bo elected, becauso each party will nomlnato only tho number it has votes toelect. Next, it was shown that blunders in nomination, either its to tho number of candidates to bo sup ported or as to Individual nominations, could bo readily aud certainly corrected by tho voters at tho If gal election. Al so, that bolting (as it Is called) Is de prived to n great extent of Its mischie vous character, bolters being only ublo to ropresont themselves by their own votes when their number is adequate, without being ablo to turn nn election tipsldo down or prevent a Just division of tho offices between parties. It was also clearly shown at thoso elections that tho preparation, polling, counting and return of fractional Votes, lu cases where their uso was found deslrablo, was qulto slmplo and convenient, occa sioning no difficulty, uncertainty or confusion, I'UOOBESS OF REFORM. Tho Stato of New York a fow years silica used tho limited voto in choosing thirty-two delegates at largo to her Constitutional Convention. No voter was allowed to voto for moro than six teen. Moro recently she choso tho six Assoclato Judges of her highest court on tho samo principle; no voter was allowed to voto for moro than four. But though theeo were steps in tho right direction and resulted in fuller repre sentation of tho people, It must bo ac knowledged that tho limited voto is an Imperfect contrivance ond not fitted for oxtcnslvo uso. Moro wisely Instructed tho Statu of Illinois tho present year has adopted tho freo voto, not only for tho election of directors or managers of Incorporated companies, as before men Honed, but also for tho election of Rep. rcsentatlves In her Legislature They will bo chosen biennially, commencing with tho year 1872, threo being elected HATES OF ADVERTISING.

In thlsStnto, In August last, n respect able convention In favor of minority representation was held nt Reading. It adopted proper resolutions and organ ized committees for future work. Tho men concerned in that convention and tho friends of reform generally In this State, look forward to n Constitutional Convention 03 tho means for securing tho main objects they havo In viow. And thoy particularly desiro that tho members of such convention, if one should bo called, shall bo elected upon n plan of reformed voting, so that the whole peoplo shall bo represented In tho convention. Without a convention, however, much can bo done. Tho Leglslatu re has com pleto power over municipal elections aud can reform them at pleasure, aud It can also largely Improve tho repre sentation of the peoplo in tho Legisla ture Itself. In conclusion I will say to all friends of reform, bo confident und hopeful of tho future. It Is well for us "to labor and to wait." Oreat changes nro best mado when made deliberately and with due caution ; not In passionate heat but upon coolconvlctlon. Electoral reforms may come slowly, but they aro suro to come, for their necessity grows every year moro ovident. Note: Tho fourth section of the Bloomsburg act, (approved 4th March, 1870), under or in conformity to which tho several local olectlons in Pennsyl vanla referred to in the foregoing ad dress, were held, Is as follows : Sec. 4. To the end that the electors of Bloomsburg maycxerciso theirright of sull'rago freely nnd without undue constraint, ami may obtain for them selves c&mpleto representation in their local government, tho plan or the free voto shall bo lawfiil nnd is hereby au thorized in tho elections for officers of said town and for all officers to bo cho sen by them exclusively. In any caso where more persons than ono aro to bo chosen In said town to tho samo office, for tho samo time or term of service, each voter duly qualified shall bo enti tled to as many votes ns tho number of persons to bo so chosen nnd may poll his votes ns follows, to wit : First, When two persons nro to be chosen ho may give ono voto to each of two candidates, or two votes to one. Second, When threo persons aro to bo choson he may glvo ono voto to each of three candidates, two votes to one candldato and ono to nnother, ono vote and a half to each of two candidates or threo votes to one. Third, When four persons aro to bo chosen ho may glvo ono voto to each of four candidates, one voto nnd ono-thlrd to each of three, two votes to each of two, or four votes to ono. Fourth, Whon six persons are to bo chosen he may glvo ono voto to each of six candidates, ono voto nnd a half to each of four, two votes to each of three, three votes to each of two, or six votes to one. In every caso tho candidates highest In voto shall be declared elected. When over a voter shall Intnmi tn nlvn mnwi votes than ono, or to give a fraction of a vpto to any candidate, ho shall express his Intention distinctly nnd clearly up on tho faco of his ballot, otherwlso but one vote shall bo counted and allowed to such candidate. This section shall apply to tho choico of school directors and of all officers to bo choson exclu sively by tho electors of said town whenever Its application shall be possi blo. Advertising AgcncicN. Ono of the most reliable establish ments of this character, that of John Hooper 4 Co., of New York, whose name has loug been tho synonym for Integrity aud financial responsibility, has Just been merged with tho younger but not less favorably known house of G. P. Rowell & Co. Tho success or the last named firm has been something unparalled in tho history of tho busi ness. Wo lately heard of nn nnecdoto relat ed of a traveling representative of a well-known patent medicine firm wh'i was endeavoring to contract with tho publishers of a leading AVestern naner. "lain impressed" said he, "with your establishment ; it reminds mo of that of a. P. Rowell & Co., of Now York, with only this distinction, you ask a great deal of money for a little ndver Using, nnd thoy give a great deil of advertising for a little money." This Is tho impression that many ob tain and not without justico, for al though Messrs Rowell & Co , havo nov er claimed to bo ablo to insert itdvortls. monts in Newspapers nt lower prices than tho publishers would accept from equally responsible advertisers who furnish u similar amount of patronage, yet In this last clause lies much of their success. For eomo years they have been tho largest customers of most of tho newspapers published in tliu United States. Their American Nowspaper Director which Is conceded by nil peisons compe tent to pass Judgment upon such a work, to bo tho most complete volumo of Its character over issued in this or any other country, may bo found on tho shelves of every prominent ndver User. This firm has for somo years been conceded to bo tho leading establish ment of its kind in America. And tho absorption of J. Hooper & Co., ouo of tho fow others which could with justico bo called their rival, places them In n position far in advaneo of all competit ors. Moro than flvo thousand American Periodicals nro recolved regularly and kept on lllo nt their offices which aro locatcl In tho Now York TimesfBuild.
