The time for bolding our primary meetings is
close at hand, and we would he glad to have this
matter fully discussed, so that no man entitled
4 0 vote at rilfh election jnay not fully understand
the workings of this, to us, new system, previous
to eastinglds ballot. Let us have light.
Anen4r: Tici gist of the Crawford
county ystem q, that every voter casts
his ballot directly for his candidate, in
stead of voting for delegates with—or
without—instructions. A board, con
sisting of three men, is appointed for
each election precinct by the County.

Thesyste)u N lias worked well for years
in Crawford county, Where it emana
ted, and is founile N d on tho sound, re
publican principle ; that the people shall
speaLby ballot, in tlicxsimplest, most
qtraightferward way. Thk objections
to the system are all, so far as„we have
seen, or heard, from wire-pulli‘fig poli
Sometime' ago there was an effort
made in this county to establish this
system, and it was opposed by ambi
tious politicians of the county, who saw
that their wire-pulling schemes were
being interfered with - by the people, for
whom, with all their pretensions, they
have very little respect. In carrying
out this system, it is only necessary to
see first, that the board is all right.—
Second, concentrate. Don't run too
many aspirants for the same •office, re
membering that it is the plurally of
votes that nomina es.
If ono town wit' two hundred voters
were to split up or four candidates, giv
ing each fifty vo es, a smaller town
with only ono h mired voters might
east them all for o e man, and in this
way a minority e ique might secure a
oandidate by unity and concentration,
We mention this, because we limit)
heard it named as an objection to the
system ; but His not valid as an °Wee
/Von. A majority can truffle as well as
a minority, and any party can beat it
self by dissonsions'and Indifference.
Select good men, vote directly for
them, see thatthere is no illegal voting,
and lot every man who cares for self
government and thinks it worth hav
ing, go to the polls every time ho has a
chance, though he goes on foot through
a heavy rain ten miles to vote for a town
constable whom he does not care a brass
button about electing. The correct
principle is, always cast a vote when
you have a chance. You may cast it
wrong, but east it honestly—only cast it.
And when any politician tries to ex
plain away the Crawford county sys
tem of diree voting, just sot it: dosfn
that he is wire pulling. We have sent

three husbands' :with; perfect impunity
and much eclat. • •
But the thing became monotonous :•
No men on earth will stand so much
shooting as Californians, and their gal
lantry is proverbial; but, When a hand
some, dashing woman, assumes to make
herself a dashing widow at will, in
such - Mode , andinanner,,it.begins to' be
serious ; and eni t hought.the jury in the
cOe of Mra. Fair,.-,;
The possihility o woman—,-a bright,

_vieted of, and sentenced for, i nint•dpr in
the first degree,,seems not to haye en
tered into I t aura'a head at all,, And so,
having married and _tired of Alexandet
Crittenden, sheo proceeded to dispose of
him in the usual manner. -She did' it
once too often; The men who are finite
ready with the revolver when; there is
a chance to shoot backolon' t like being
shot at under the protection of pettl-
coats, and Mr. Crittenden was a well
known citizen of wealth and talent.
So they tried Ltiura Fair and Benton-
Cod her, after a fair trial, to be hanged
on the 28th. proximo. It , is a fearfully
sad thing to hang a terrified, shrinking
woman by, the neck in the presence of
men, who cannot hilt. shrink from the
horrible sight with creeping flesh.. But
bat would you have? There-was not
the slightest reason to suppose that this
_woman had any notion of relinquish
ing her bold, murderous pursuit of self
gratification and notoriety. Two mur
ders, that would have hanged the best
man in the State, she had - already com
mitted, and she was a stickler for the
doctrine that the woman has the same
rights as the man. We agree with her.
Let her have them.
And the other murderer who launder
sentence of the law, is Foster, the mur
derer of Putnahl. Being educated, a
politician of the dominant party, hav
ing influential friends and relatives in
New York, and knowing that more
than one homicide bad been committed
by men of less note' and 'influence, he
did not even attempt to escape, but
trusted - to the usual modes of beating
• -
He, too, tried it once too often. Bu
siness men in the oily suddenly, awoke
to the fact that the merchant -who took
a car for a square or two with his wife
and daughter, did so at the risk of his
life ;—and this thing must stop.
Business men in the city have very
little time to spare for the enforcement
of law or justice; but when they do
spend their time on such trifles, it is
utfially to some purpose : and Foster,
lypite of the evident desire of .the ma
gistrate to screen him ; spite of the best
legal efforts that could be made In his
behalf, finds himself /3 tAildonly in a fat
on's cell, under sentence of death at no
distant day. -He, like Mrs. Fair, is
stunned and utterly' amazed at the re
sult, no less than its suddenness. He
comes out in a long protest,' which the
Tribune publishes, for the purpose of
demolishing it in an editorial.
The two oases have a moral, and one
which criminals, at least, will not be
likely to ignore. It is this, that while
woman or a rough may slay up to a
certain point, almost with impunity,
beyond that point the public will de
cree death, and see its decree enforced.
And the two executions which are very
likely to come off, wilfmake N. York
street cars and California wedlock
much safer institutions.
Foster, the man who brutally mur
dered a respectable'citizen in N. York,
publicly, and without interference from
any one, has been sentenced to death,
and will probably be hung. - This will
be anomalous : for Foster le a politician,
on a small scale—a Foster child of Tam
many—and had so little fear of the law,
that he made no effort to escape, rely
ing on his political friends for aid in
" beating" the law. And at first sight
it looked very much as though Foster
knew what he was about. The magis
trate before whom he was taken on his
arrest, almost apologized for the pain
ful necessity that obliged him to incar
cerate his political friend and ally.
There was a strong disposition shown
to discharge the murderer on straw ball,
and for a feW dayS it was dollars to six
pences that Foster, like his illustrious
predecessors, was to go free after a short,
detention and it few law quibbles. But
this time the public waked up to the
fact that a man could no longer travel
with safety to life and limb on a New
York street car ; and, as most business
men are to some extent obliged to use
that mode of conveyance, the affair
was thought worth looking after. The
Tribune took up the case savagely, and
it really began to look a little serious
for the man who had killed an unoffen
ding citizen,,,with a car hook, in the
public streets of our largest city. Fos
ter was no worse—only more &ducky
—than a score of homicides who walk
the streets °Mew York with impunity.
Ho had chosen his time and place bad
ly. The public happened just then to
take the,ir'iotion that an example was in
order, and Fber was put on trial seri
ously, for his life. Then came the farce
of selecting twelve good and true men
who had not formed any opinion as to
the merits of the case, the guilt or in
nocence of the prisoner, or, in fact, on
any subject whatever that might have
the most remote bearing on this or any
other murder trial. As there is not an
intelligent man, who can read and
write, within fifty miles of New York,
but must have some opinion in a mat
ter of this kind, the wonderis—not that
live or six hundred were summoned be
fore a * j ry was iniparineled—but that a
jury was ever 'obtained at all; or, that
being, impanneled, they ever attained
to any opinion on anything. Bat pub

can feel, and , Foster is found 'guilty ;

A Startling Phenomenon.
Onto/Lao, June 5.—A terrible cyclone
devastated a narrow' strip of country
near Mason City, 111., last Friday mor
ning. The storm cloud was first ob
served gathering on an open prairie,
six miles from 'Mason City, and from
this cloud soon shot out three narrower
and spire -like cloud columns, which
continued to ascend rapidly, until they
reaohed and seemed to amalgamate
with a passing cloud above. This start
ling phenomenon then moved slowly
toward Mason City, but finally changed
its course, much to the relief of the
people of that place. A mile from , -its
track, an odor, much like that of hum
ing sulphur, was inhaled. by several
persons. • A gentleman, who was with
in. a hundred yards of the cyclone wheii
it pttanod, Rasa that small flashes of ielec-
Welty were cunrganti,y, tho
storm column, passing 'from
to the clouds above, and that rapid
crackling reports were heard, remind
ing 'him most forcibly of volleys\ of
musketry. Thnpathwayof the oyolpne
was nearly three miles in length, and
from 20 to 80 feet in width, and in that
pathway not a spear of grass, not one
of corn or wheat, not a shrub, and not
a particle of vegetation was left alive.—
For some distance the earth was.liter
ally plowed up to the depth of six in
ches. The column of whirling air must
have been intensely hot as every green
thing in its path was dried to a crisp.—,
Another feature of the cyclone was
that, while its rotary motion must have _
been of inconceivably great velocity, ,
its-forward motion was only. about six
miles an hour. The outlines ofits path
way were so well defined that, five feet
from the*outer line of total destruction
of vegetation of every kind, not a ves
tige of its effects could be seen. For
tunately no house stood in the line of
the tornado.— Tribune.
