First Election Held in Baltimore
Under the Law Calculated to
Disfranchise the Illiterate.
By i:ela-nc Wue from The Associateil I'iw.
naUimore, May C The fli&t import
ant election to be held under the new
ballot law devised by the Democrats
to disfr.inshl.se illiterates-, will take
place in this city tomororw, when a
new city council will be chosen. Tli
election will be InterestlniT principally
because of lis beailnpr upon the new
law, and the opportunity which 1t will
alioid for testlni; its efficacy from a
Democratic point of view.
Hoth parties have been comparative
ly inactive In their canvasses and tlio
general public Is decidedly aiiatheii as
to the remit. Of the two, however,
the Hepubllcans have made tho si eater
effort. This fait, together with the
further fuel that a factional light In
the Demoi-cratlc ranks Is on, with
.Mayor Hayes and his friends on one
side and the followeis of I. Kieoiuan
Kasln. on the oilier, makes It highly
probable that the council, which Is now
Democratic, may have a Republican
majority after tho votes ai'i counted.
Surface Indications point io this ie
hiilt as Inevitable unless the new law
cms olf oiioukIi ik-kmi voles Io give
the Democrats a l tory.

Republican nnd Democratic Lenders
Try to Foimulato a Bill Party
Circle to Be Dropped.
By r.xilniivi' Wile from The "Wndaled 1'icm.
Tlarrhburg, May (!. A conference be
tween tho Kepubllcan and Democratic
leaders of Pennsylvania on ballot re
form legislation was held tonight at
the executive inanson. The purpose of
the meeting was to try to formulate a.
ballot bill which will receive the sup
port of a majoilty ot the members ot
the picsent legislature. The Republi
can confeiees were United States Sen
ators Quay iiml Penrose, Governor
Stone, JiiMiianee Commissioner Dur
ham, Senator Focht, chaliman of the
senate election committee; Senate
President Pro Tern Snyder and State
Chairman Ueeder. The Democratic
representatives were Colonel James M.
Guffey, of Pittsburg, member of the
national committee: Congressman Polk,
of Montour; Representative Ikeler, of
Columbia: ex-State Chairman Killing,
State Chairman Creasy and Senator
Miller, of Cumberland.
The Democrats favor the passage of
a hill which does away -with the party
circle on the official ballot, and will
agree to no measure which provides
for lis retention. Senator Quay also
favois the elimination of the circle, but
some of his associates are opposed to
doing away with It.
The conference came to it close after
midnight, without reaching a definite
agreement. Hoth parties agreed that
Ihe party circle Miould he dropped and
that the party colninc-i" .should lemaln
as they aie on the present ballot. The
Democrats insisted that no person shall
be entitled to assist more than ten
voters to prepare their ballot, and that
bofote a voter can secure assistance he
must, make aflldavit. that be cannot
read and write, or that he is physic
ally unable to prepare his ballot. Tlio
Republicans objected to the feature re
quiring the voter to make affidavit as
to his disability, and promised to take
the matter under consideration and re
port later. Tho original Democratic
proposition was that no person could
assist more than three voters.
