DISREGARD THE VOTERS,
KLKCTION MiCTIIODM IN ALA KAMA
AKK liJCUUOT TO LIUIIT.
Committee Iteporta the Klectlon V.awa of
That Htnte an n Fraud to Thwart
the Will of the l'eople.
Washington, Jan. 2& An un
usually Bovore arraignment of alleged
election frauds is -made in the report
by house committee on elections No.
1, in tho case of William F. Aldrich
against Thomas S. Plowman, from tho
fourth district of Alabama. Mr.
Plowman is the sitting member, but
tho committee submits a recount of
the vote giving Aldrich, republican
ana populist candidate, tho seat. The
report says in part:
We shall endeavor to demonstrate
by what methods the will of the
people was thwarted. Id doing ho
not all of the frauds perpetrated will
be referred to; o."l; salient features
can bo touched and representative in
If the election laws of Alabama had
been designed to encourage fraud and
thwart the people's will, they could
not bave boon in some respects more
happily framed to meet that purpose.
After criticising the Alabama elec
tion lawns putting the honest voto ut
the mercy of dishonest markers, the
When it is known that the condition
for such a state of facts exists, it is
not strange that illiterate voters
should remain away from tne polls in
the houe that they would not at least
furnisii ammunition for their political
opponent, but this m.itie little differ
ence to the democratic maongers in
Dal. us county. Tney voted the illi
terate colorrd mon, u'et.-nt or absent.
Tho machinery w is simple and effec
tive. Fortunately it h s been discov
ered and the details of its operations
l;id bare. Fraud is everywhere, not
lurking or secret, but bold and inso
lont. Fraud is of live kinds:
1. Filling the poll list with names of
persons not registered; sometimes of
fictitious persons, and sometimes of
pe'hons who did not live in the pre
cinct 2. By padding the poll list with
names of persons on the registration
list who did not vole.
3. By imposing on illiterate voters.
4. By the old-fashioned method of
falsely recording votes.
5. By refusing to hold any election
at all in certain strong republican
After going into much detail on the
alleged frauds, the cenmittoe says it
has revised the vote on the most con
servative lines, giving Aldrich a plu
rality of 542, whereas the election of
Plowman was claimed by 2,967 plu

That dark brown taste and horrid
breath you have in the morning is
caused by an inactive liver. Some
medicines relieve for a while; others
for a few days, but Herbine cures.
Children and adults tortured by

diseases may secure instant relief by
using DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve
It is the great Pile remedy. F. G

the respective victims no details will

Is your liver tired? does it fail to do
duty? If so, don't neglect its call for
help. A few doses of Herbine may
3ave you a spell ofosickness. Herbine
is the only .perfect liver medicine. It
cures Chills and Fever. 75c.
There is no remedy equal to Herbine
for the cure of constipation, sick
headache, indigestion, vertigo, loss of
memory, uncertain appitite, un restful
sleep or skin eruptions, If you want
a perfect tonic for the liver, Herbine
will not disappoint you.
There are three little things which

After years of untold suffering from
