Oao of the twelve amendments to the
constitution of Nebraska , submitted to the
judgment or the electors of the state , pro
vides that "nil votes shall bo by balloter
or such other method as may bo prescribed
by law , provided the secrecy of voting bo
preserved. "
The purpose ot the amendment Is to vest
In the legislature power to Improve and
simplify the present cumbersome system of
voting by authorizing the use of mechanical
appliances of demonstrated superiority. An
amendment of similar Import was Incorpo
rated In the constitution of Now Yoik state
and has led to thorough trials of. balloting
Thcro Is no more Interesting automatic
registering dovlco than the voting machine
of the highest type. It has a mind of Its
own. There Is no possibility of cheating
It without exposing Its Inner workings with
a coal chisel and hammer ; and by Its won-
ilerful system of lightning calculation It
has the votes all classified and counted at
each poll and the result ready for the wire
as soon as the last ballot Is cast. In addi
tion to these advantages the voter may cast
Ills cntlro ballot , even a split ticket. In less
time that It takes to purchase as many
cents worth of chewing gum from a vend
ing machine. The wages paid to a corps
of counting clerks can bo saved by the
state or by the organization bearing the
One of the most Interesting of these
patented devices Is the very recent Inven
tion of a citizen of Indiana , and Is ono of a
number described by the Philadelphia
Times. The voter , unaccompanied , enters
the booth , the floor of wnlch automatically
drops a short space the second ho places Ills
foot upon It. The only Interior furniture
Is a standing desk , through a slot In the
surface of which Is exposed a single blank
line on a continuous ballot sheet. The voter
simply stamps the choice of his candidates
upon this line , and In the appropriate col
umns. Ho promptly makes his exit , and In
doing this takes his feet off the pedal floor.
Itcllcved of the weight , the floor automatic
ally raises , thereby operating a set of lov
ers , which move the tally role up ono space ,
to bo filled In by the next voter. At the
same time the number of the voter Is re
corded by the automatic counter Inside.
Entering the booth patented lately by a
nrooklyn man , th > voter scea upon the wall
before him a collection of pueh buttons ,
each labeled with the name of a different
candidate. To vote for any candidate he
merely pushes the button bearing his name.
Ho looks through the collection , arranged
In groups , according to offices , and selects
his choice of ach. At the same time a
register , like that on a bicycle cyclometer ,
keeps tally for each knob and notes how
many votes have been cast by Its means.
A dishonest voter may push each button of
his choice a number of times. He may
come out with the depraved satisfaction
that ho has done as much voting as a st >
or more ot honest men. Hut the machine
Is not BO unsophisticated OR ho Is. Any
voter , even by mistake , Is unable to vote
twice for the same candidate , or even for
two men running for the same ofllcc and on
different tickets. As soon as ho presses a
button he locks It against further working
and at the same time locks all the other
buttons In the same'group. . As the voter
leaves the booth an olllclal attending the
door manipulates a lever , which returns
the whole mechanism to Us normal posi
tion , ready for the next voter. After all of
the votes have been cast , or during the
progress ot the election , when n test Is do-
slrcd , the result up to that time may be re
corded by clipping a card Into an opening ,
the score' being automatically printed
upon It.
Some months ago a Rochester ( N. Y. ) man
patented a booth which Is bound to afford
privacy to the voter. At ono corner la built
a largo cylindrical door , resembling a tall
drum. It revolves upon ball bearings at thu
ceiling and floor. An opening leading Into
the cylinder Is brought exactly coincident
with a goto leading to the open air. Step
ping tnsldo the cylindrical door , the voter ,
by means of a handle , revolves It upon Its
bearings until the opening In question co
incides with another door leading to the
voting space Inside. The voter steps out
and casts his vote by means of one of the
modern duvlceo described. When finished
ho enters the cylindrical door again and con-
tlnue to revolve It In the original direction
until Its opening coincides with a third door
provided as an exit. The attendant there
upon motes the cylinder around one-third
of a revolution more , until Its door and the
entrance gate ore again on a line , ready
for the next voter. This connects with an
automatic register , which keeps account of
the number of voters. It will not register
more than cno number without the cylinder
being revolved only In ono direction. Uy
this means It is Impossible for the voter to
be disturbed whjlo In the booth , since ho
himself has control of the only possible
means of entrance.
The ball system ot voting Is so far Im
proved by a Callfornlon patentee as to become -
como applicable- political elections. Do-
fore entering the booth the voter Is handed
a tray which resembles a folding slate on
the exterior. While Inside ho opens the
tray , fastened Into the under side of which
are a number of small balls or marbles
corresponding with number of ofllccs to be
voted for. On the same surface are as many
columns of round holes as there are com
peting parties. The name of the party It
placed at the top of each column , and at
the side of the hole Is printed the name of
a candidate. The voter takes the balls ,
ono at a time , and Inserts them Into tht
holes corresponding to his choice of candi
dates. Ho then shuts and fastens tbo lid
of the tray and emerges from the booth
Ho hands the tray , still closed , to an In
spsctor , who , opening It , fastens It by means
of clamps upon the top ot a specially con.
etructcd ballot box. According to the man
ner In which the tray tlta the top of tbo box ,
the holes in which the hallu are arranged
ere directly above several groups of tubes
which correspond and respectively belong to
the different candidates. Ily turning a lever
the Inspector rauscs the balls to fall through
the cover ot the tray Into the appropriate
tubes. Ho turns a crank until all the balls
fall Into a trough In full view of the voter.
While passing through the ballot box each
hall registers ono vote , a count of which U
Kept by an Indicator Inside. Thus the balls
are euro to drop Into the compartments of
the candidates for which the votes were or-
Jglnally Intended , and It Is Impossible to
cast more than ono vote for the same man ,
elnco only ono ball will fit into

each hole In the tray. It is
llkcwlflo Impossible to cast more votei
than there are candidates provided , since
the number ot balls used agree with the
exact number of candidates. The Inspector ,
or any observer , has no possible means ot
detecting the nature of the vote without
opening the ballot box. Having been dropped
Into the trough and counted by the voter ,
that ho may be satisfied that all of his votes
have taken effect , the balls are again placed
Into the fastenings Inside the tray and the
latter Is handed to the next voter. At the
end of the election the ballot box Is opened
In the presence of 'the authorities and the
statement ot the number of votes Is taken
from the automatic counters. A somewhat
similar contrivance for voting by means ot
discs to bo dropped in slots Is the Invention
of another California man.
A New England Inventor named McTam-
many has received more than n dozen pat
ents for automatic voting machines. The
best known of these has been adopted by
Massachusetts , to bo used , at local option ,
In local town elections. It is a small , square
box of steel mounted upon a high pedestal.
It may bo placed In a booth , but even
though placed In full view It would be dim-
cult to detect the nature of n vote cast
thereby. The oIHces for which the candi
dates have been nominated are arranged In
a vertical column upon"tho face. Opposite
Is a column of slots , each slot corresponding
\\lth an office In the other column. Dcncath
each slot can bo moved a long ribbon ot
card-board , bearing the names of the candi
dates for the appropriate offices , only ono
set of names being visible at a time. Ily
turning a hand-wheel at the left the voter
may bring his choice ot names Into view and
opposite the appropriate offices. As each
chosen candidate Is brought Into position
the voter presses a small button opposite
his name and this process punches n hole In
the card. By an Interlocking system each
button becomes secure against repetition as
soon as pressed once , and so remains until
the attendant operates n lever , making ready
for the next voter. After the balloting has
ended the vote of each candidate Is ascer
tained by taking out each of the 'pastboard
ribbons In turn and by grinding
them through n contrivance which
closely resembles n paper-roll music
box. Each hole In a ribbon automatically
scores upon an Indicator. The system Is
claimed to bo especially valuable for states
In which a man must be able to read before -
fore bc'ng eligible to a vote , as Is the case
in Massachusetts.
The Myers voting machine , which was
accepted by the late New York constitu
tional convention as legal for use In such
city or town elections , Now York and
Brooklyn cxcepted , as may adopt It , Is as
complete as any .of tboso described. A
small compartment conceals the voter , wlio ,
upon entering , finds upon tbo walls the
names ot candidates arranged In vertical
columns , according to parties. The votes
are cast by pushing In the appropriate
knobs , each vote being registered upon a
dupltcato board on the opposite sldo of the
partition wall. The pushing of each knob
locks It against repetition and locks the
knobs of all candidates for the same ofQco.
The whole system Is automatically set free
by a combination of levers , put In motion
when the voters opens the door to make his
exit.Tho votograph , now legally usable In Mich
igan. Is n box with a horizontal face , upon
which the names of the candidates appear
as labels upon a scries ot punch-buttons.
Beneath are ribbons containing separate
tally voteii for each candidate , with serial
numbers printed upon them In a vertical
row. Pushing a button puts a punch In
position for each name so selected , and the
closing of the lid puts a hole through the
proper number , moving each roll up one
space at thu same time. The final results
are read by noting the last number punched
upon each ribbon. Repeating and Irregular
ity are prevented by a complete Interlock
ing system , Michigan permits either the
votograph or the Myers machine for town
or city elections. Last year Connecticut
legalized the use ot cither the Myers or
McTammany system for local option.
In most ot the machines It Is arranged
that a straight ticket may bo cast by pushIng -
Ing a single button as well as by making
each vote separately as described. The lat
ter method admits of the voting of a "split
ticket" by any of the machines. The in
terior mechanism of the greater number of
the machines is similar to that ot the cash
register , although some inventors have em
ployed electricity. i

Dr. Miller TnlUn to TeaclierN In the
Intrrcnt of the Iluinanc Society.
Yesterday afternoon Dr. George L. Miller ,
as president of the > Ncbraska State Humane
society , addressed , the principals of the
Omaha public schools upon tbo subject of
organizing bands ofc mercy In their classes.
Dr. Miller made a most eloquent appeal for
the kind treatment" ot animals and said ho
considered It the duty of every teacher to
Instill Into the mind ot a pupil an early love
for the dumb brute. The tlmo was , and not
long ago , said the speaker , that murder , in a
lesser sense , was committed dally upon the
domestic animals. The excellent work ac
complished by the 'Humane society In Now
York City and other places was worthy of
emulation In Omaha , and a great per cent
ot these good results had been performed
through children. The doctor spoke for half
an hour and concluded by requesting that
an effort be raado by the toacbera to In
terest their pnpllaMu. tho-work.
On behalf of the principals. Superintend
ent Pcarso replied that the subject had al
ready been considered' by the teachers and
that many of them had formed small bands
oftheir pupils together for the purpose
spoken of by the doctor. Ho assured Dr.
Miller that after the war against the use
of tobacco , which is now being waged by
the teachers , hod received Its proper at
tention the next subject would -bo that of
Instructing pupils in the laws of kindness
duo all animals.
It is proposed by the local officers of the
Humane society to furnish literature upon
the subject to all puplla who band them
selves together for the good of this cause.
Among the things promised when societies
of more than twenty are formed Is "Our
Dumb Friend , " a periodical ; "Ten Lessons in
Kindness , " "Band of Mercy" hymns and
other articles , Including a gold pin for the
president ot each society.

After Election
A great many people in Omaha need , winter suits
this minute but they arc waiting till after election to
see "which way the cat jumps. " If the cat jumps the
right way they will conclude to keep warm this winter
and if he doesn't they think they might as well keep
cool. If the cat shouldn't jump or should keep on
. jumping after he got started we don't know what
these people are going to do about it , but we do know
right now before the cat jumps they can buy the
best five dollar suit of clothes here that anybody has
ever seen anywhere at any time. It is a special pur
chase of Bromley's "Kole Blak" cheviots made up into
double breasted suits lined with 10 ounce Farmers'
satin and selling for he first time in this country at
$5.00 a suit. The stores that are .selling these same
suits at $7.00 are waiting till the cat jumps before
they mark 'em down to $6.98. In the meantime the
man who waits till after election stands a good show of

Railway men have for some tlmo con
sidered It Impossible to get a Pullman car
on any of the Vandcrbllt lines , Just as It
Is Impossible to move a Wagner car on the
Southern Pacific west from Ogdcn. A
notable exception , however , to this Iron
clad rule has just occurred and Is exciting
much comment in railway circles. Some
of the troops that the Union Pacific brought
east from California a few days ago wcro In
Pullman cars. . .Tho cars were carried
through from hero to Chicago by the North
western and , wonderful to relate , were
taken from there to Now York by the
Nickel Plato and the West Shore roads.
The soldiers refused to change cars and
thereby succeeded In fracturing ono of the
time-honored rules of the Vandcrbllt lines.
