J. A. Howard, )
vs. No. 10 Deu.'T. 1881.
W. H. Jacohy. J
Opinion of the Court, hy Klwell, President
Judge, filed January I I, 18S2.
The Justice gave Judgment for the plain
tiff for six dollars ami llfty cents upon a
claim of thiKc dollars for services lu procur
ing delegates from Pino township to a nom
inating convention favorable to the nomina
tion of the defendant fortlie olllce of Iteglslir
mid Recorder, also, for six dollars and 11 fly
"cents, money borrowed at the instnnc of
"the defendant, and used for htm lu paying
"travelling expenses to election, and for men
"to leave their work and go to thu primary
"election for defendant, and for liquor hills
"Sic, und for two dollars paid for one gal
"Ion of whiskey furnished by the plalntlll
"at the Instance of the defendant."
It does not appear whether there was a
special contract to procure delegates to ho
elected from the township named, who
would vote for tho defendant, or whetliel,
having rendered services hy request, the
plaintill seeks to recover upon n quantum
meruit. It was not material to spread the
claim more fully upon the record, The
rigid of the plalntllV to recover that item of
Ids claim depends upon tho chiiincler of the
services performed. If they were not pro
ldblled hy law, nor contrary to public policy
and good morals, the contract therefor was
a valid contract.
A candidate for nomination or election,
may freely and lawfully use all honest means
to procure ids success at the convention or at
the polls. The act of 18th April 1871, Pamp.
L. Ill, expressly nuthnrlz.es payments and
contributions by candidates for printing,
travelling expenses, dissemination of infor
mation to the public, political meetings,
demonstrations and conventions but excepts
out, uvcry direct and indirect purchase of the
vote or influence of an elector, and every act
for nny corrupt purpose whatever Incident
to an election. What is cleaily embraced
w ithin the terms above mentioned and not
excepted therefrom is lawful. Interest may
be made for a candidate without taint of cor
ruption. Electioneering, as it is called, with
out the use of corrupt means, Is not con
demned hy the law. Even art may lie used
by a candidate in securing ids election with
puru motives and patriotic purpose. The
statute forbids the'perverslon of art, not its
Use. Williams vs. Commonwealth 10 Norris
f!03. Per Trunkey, .1.
The statute is iiot to be so construed ns to
prohibit a candidate from employing a friend
to canvass an election district for him and
by repicscntalions in regard to his qualifica
tions, his claims for party support, or by any
legitimate arguments operate upon the minds
of tlie voters, and thus piocuro the return of
delegates who will support him in tlie nom
inating convention. Such services are not
Illegal and aiea sulllcient consideration to
support a promise to pay for them Including
necessary travelling expenses.
But tlie loan of money for the purpose set
forth in the plaintill's claim was illegal.
Every contract made for or ntWl any mat
teror tiling which is prohibited and made un
lawful by a statute, is void. Badgley vs
Deale, ii Watts 204. Money lent to lie cm
ployed in an unlawful game or any other il
legal purpose cannot be recovered back. Eler
man vs Iteitzel 1 W. Si S. 181, 2 Smith's
Leading Cases 3 10.
Thu act of 1874 in express terms declares
that It shall not bo so construed as to author
ize the payment of money or other valuable
thing for the vote or lnlluencc of any elector,
cither directly or indirectly, at primary,
township, general or special elections, nom
inating conventions or for any corrupt pur-
pose whatever, incident to an election.
Money paid or promised by a candidate to
voter for his day or travelling expenses iu
attending an election or a primary meetin.
and casting his vote for him, although such
payment or promise Is ostensibly made as a
matter of friendship orcharlly, it is a viola
tion of the Act of Assembly and of tho pro
islons of article VII section 1, of thu Con-
It is not necessary In order to tiring a cue
ithin the prohibition of the statute that the
candidate in terms agieed to pay a certain
sum as a consideration for u vote. Ordi
inly proof of corruption in such cases can
only be estnbllshcd'bv the attending circum-
Where money is paid to a voter under tlie
circumstances slated lu tills transcript, at
least a prima Jacia case of illegality is estab
lishcd. If the purpose of tills loan was not
illegal a candidate mar lawfully proclaim that
every voter for him will he paid for Ids time
and travel. It needs no argument to prove
that such an olfcr, whether made to few or
many, Is nothing more nor Ies than a money
bid for votes, nor that tliure are persons en
titled to vote who would be iiilluenced by
the sum promised or paid to cast their votes
for thu generous donor, lu a canvass thus
conducted, a competitor who depends upon
his merits, Instead of money, stands but a
poor chance for success. Especially would
this he tlie case if it was understood (as It is
in all such eases) that the liberality of the can
didiitu who distributes tlie money was limited
to those who would cast their votes for him.
Tho purpose for which tho plalntlll bor
rowed and, as he alleges, expended the six
dollars and a half demanded iu this suit,
was iu part at least contrary to the statute,
and iu all respects contrary to tho policy of
the law. The plalntlll cannot state his case
without exhibiting Its Illegality. No court
will lend Its aid to enforce a contract con
trary to law or good morals, but will leave
the parties where It found them. However
it mav be considered aside from the law, iu
law thu condition of tlie defcndim' is the
The loan of thu six dollars and llfty cents
being one contract and for purposes con
trary to law the judgment must be reversed.
