THf AUSTRALIAN BALLOT.
Somt Interesting PoiRts Concerning This
. Method of Voting. .
The example ?et, says the Ral-
' eigh Postr by ; other states in
adoring !the Australian ballo t
system shows that system is' grow
ing in popular f avpr. There: are
manysmen in North Caroling who
believe the time isctoseat hahd
when the public Jweal wiHNbe en-
hanced by the. 'adoption oFat
form of yotiDg in 'this state. The
Asheville Citizen, in an editorial
..-on the subject says :
The Citizen is advobatiug the
adoption; of the Australian ballot
law because, the interests of the
stabe demand it. Its passage will
work no injury to any . particular
party, but it will certainly mili-
' tate against the party which is in
the minority and therefore stands
in need of any artifice which will
help its cause. As many times
; stated in these columns, there is
absolutely no opportunity . for
fraud to operate under thex system
t for which we are urging considera-
i tion. It eliminates the floater1'
I because nobody will approach him
when his field is wiped out of ex
istence. Democrats, in particu
lar, have nothing to lose by the
enactment of a law adopting, the
Australian ballot. On the con
trary, they have everything, to
gain by reason of the fact that
since they, as a party r have no
need of fraudulent methods to win
their battles, they can witness
with satisfaction 5 and profit the.
In conclusion, the Qitizen has
no hesitancy in saying that the
man with any political ambitions
at all can ill afford to let sb gol
den an Opportunity for earning a
lasting name for himself pass by.
We know whereof we speak when
we predict that the. representative
who in the coming legislature at
taches his name to the Australian
ballot bill wijl find his reward at
the hands of 4he people-
iemtoval of their main danger in
- time of election the- use of
'boodle." In every state where
the Australian ballot law has
been adopted it has produced
beneficial results. Both of .the'
1 great political parties unite in
voicing praises, and there is no
reason in the world why North
Carolina should not enroll itself
under the banner of the greatest
reforming aeencv in the political
: world. The Old North7 State has

Tha Norfolk Landmark of yes
terday contains a short editorial
under the above : heading and is
worth being copied and read and
carefully studied, says the Raleigh
Post. About the sorriest specta
cle in a community is the rnan
who attempts, on a thousand dol
lar salary, to carry his family
through all the flounces and frills
of fashion, to join in the whirl
and trot the pace set by the man
whose income is ten times as
great, f , Right, here the sensible
man can find a 'granite rock upon
which to found his resolutions for
the coming year., The Landmark
says: . ,
4 'If the truth were known , the
world would be startled ' at the
number of people who stint them
selves of the necessities of life1 in
order to provide themselves with
its luxuries. This habit is rapid
ly increasing as the .country gets
older. and the leaders of fashion
rival each ojher in luxuriousness,
Amorig the wealthy, luxury may
be obtained without a sacrificA nf

be more truth than humor in this
