of eighty persons to the national cemetery
at Keokuk. The' eighty bodies are now
buried at Fort Yates, North Dakota, and
must be removed from there because of the
government opening the lands there to set

Suit Asalnst Voting; Machine.
The suit against voting machines, which
Is threatened to be started in this city,
has called to the attention of politicians
that under the voting machine the tall
end of th ticket will not suffer, as It is
feared it will when the paper ballot is
used with the circle off the ballot. For
the first time In Iowa at a presidential
election the circle will be off the ballot
in Iowa. It was taken off at the session
of the legislature In 1S9B and It was
shown then that many would not vote
beyond the important offices.
When the circle was left at the head
of the Australian ballot the voter could
make a cross In that circle and his vote
counted for the entire ticket from top
to bottom. I'nder the law now it Is
necessary for blm to make a cross in
front of the name of every man for
whom he wishes to vote. Many citizens
will vote for the first eight or ten
names and then, being uninterested In
the minor offices, wiil not vote further
down the ticket. .
Whether the voting machines to be used
in Des Moines this fall for th first time
are Illegal or not there Is no question but
that their manipulation amounts to prac
tically the same thing as restoring the
circle. When the voter enters the hootn
he must pull the lever of some party or
other. In doing so he fixes the machine
in position to vote the straight party ticket.
He Is then at liberty to put bsck Into their
plaoes the lever above the name of any
candidate of that party fur whom tut dots
mi wish to vote and la pull down the lever
above the name of a candidate for that of
fice of some other party.
The grounds on which It Is claimed that
the voting machine does not comply with
the law since the circle was taken off the
ballot, are that the legislature In amend
ing the law to take the circle off the ballot
cut out these words:
Or If he desires to vote for all the candi
dates upon any ticket, he may do so by
placing a cross in the circle at the head of
This leaves the provision reading as fol
lows: Vpon retiring to the voting booth, the
voter shall prepare his ballot by placing a
cross In the square opposite the name of
each candidate for whom he desires to
Of course those who desire to defend the
voting machine claim that this amendment
pertains to the paper ballot and not to the
voting machine and that the machine Is
still legal. Politicians will be rejoiced If It
I found legal by the courts for It will
