Is popular interest in the nuad-

of the measure of esteem in which

An effort carefully and intelligently
to answer these questions in such

answering them in the broad light of
statistical facts, is fraught with ex
tremely interesting considerations.

Four years ago it was commonly
estimated the vote would be over 17,

When the Darkles Could Vote.
Analysis of the votes of the states
successive presidential plertinne will
sciose quite enough to enlrrtam t h.
curiously statistical. It will show
that nearly all of the southern iat..
cast their highest percentage of votes
) me population lorty years ago. It
as at the election of 1876, which was
the United States of 17.9. The vote
cast this year, October 11, showed
percentage of 19.6, which was the
largest since 1880, when the average
was a.i. tverynouy knows what an
intense struggle was waged to carry
.name oy tne two parties. Naturally
a heavy vote should have been cast.
Anything like approximating Maine
percentage of votes to population for
ine rest ot tne country at next Tues
day's election would bring, the total
vote for president to over 20,000,000.
But such a result is wholly unlikely.
As shown in the table given, the trend
is distinctly downward, most notably
so in a group of states whose absten
tion from use of the ballot more than
offsets the gain obtained from the
states having woman suffrage. This
is particularly true of the southern
states havinT a large negro popula
tion and in which suffrage qualifica
tion has practically in the mass elim
inated that element.

the security of society is the greatest
Never was there a time in our his
tory when the ballot was more im
portant, more valuable for all the aimt
of society. There were never so many
officers to administer so many laws.
The choice of government officers at
the polls, who have to appoint other
officers and agents of the government,
having to deal with problems of trans
portation and with everything that af
fects the live-and-let-live principle of
our institutions imposes a graver re
sponsibility than ever and exacts a
duty which demands conscientious
discharge. The recreancy of the rep
resentative who shirks his duty in
legislative halls is no worse than the
indifference of the stay-at-home-voter,
whom nothing can move but compen
sation in money or personal favor.

Maine furnishes among the states

which was less than its own average

Middl West Votes Most
Analysis of the nreairlenrial vet. In
the last ten elections shows also that
the middle-weatern states h.va in
variably been the moat constant
patrons of the ballot box. For ex
ample, the middle-western states of
unio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois,
Wisconsin and Iowa have invariahlv
in proportion to population, voted
above the average percentage for the
United States. The New England
states are slightly below the average.
The southern states are now about
half the average. The western states
having woman suffrage have greatly

union. The state that has so far
pouea ine largest vote in proportion
to population is Colorado, which
polled 38.8 per cent In 1896. The high

What About This Year.
The question recurs, what will be
the total vote cast for president this
year? There would seem to be good
ground for expecting an increase, on
account, at least, of the laro-e ar.
cession of women voters.
the percentage of Arizona's vote
without woman suffrage in 1912 was
10.17; in 1914 in the vote for rnver.
nor it was 21.5. Colorado's vote for
president in 1892, prior to woman
suffrage, was 21.3; in 1896, with wom
am suffrage, it was 38.8, Idaho raised
her average percentage, with woman
suffrage added, from 22.2 to 34.4;
Oregon from 18.8 to 31.9. The votes
of women have added from 12 to 15
per cent to the former average vote.
Looking at the elertinn lien... I
the last forty years and facing frank
ly conditions as they aDDcar. there is
no escaping the conclusion that the
Some there are Who discern compul
sory voting on the way to remedy
the evil. Governor David B. Hill, over
twenty years ago in a message to the
New York legislature advocating com
pulsory voting, quoted an ordinance
fassed at Southampton, on Long
sland, in 1643, which declared that
citizens must" vote one way or an
other "and not be neuter." The pub
lic acts of colonial Virginia for 1705
includes this clause:
Every freeholder actually resident
in each countv shall arrnear and vote
at such election or forfeit 200 pounds
of tobacco, etc."
Various punitive remedies have
been suggested at different times,
such as finea to be paid before tha
voter can again cast a ballot, with dis
franchisement to follow cersittent ab-
sention from voting. The interesting
suggestion has been made of a person
al tax which shall be remitted in part
when the voter produces a certificate
in proper form to (how that he baa
voted. Advocates of compulsory vot
ing advance earnest arguments to im
pel the citizen to do his duty. Public
businesi ii the .voter's business. Com
pulsory voting i In the interest of
public economy. It would greatly re
duce the expenses of campaigns and
elections. Governor Hill pointed that
out to the New York legislature In
1890. In many of the rural communi
ties hundreds of voter habitually
have remained away from tha polle
until Induced to go there for money,
which ostensibly they expect to get to
compensate them for time lost from
their occupation!. Many of these tame
people would walk to town on foot to
see a circus or other show who could
be got to the polls, like at not, save
in an automobile, and paid for it, too,
The step to taking a bribe from thii
condition ii as easy at alighting from
the vehicle that hauls the voter. Tbe
great need is held by the advocates of
compulsory voting to get intelligence
and educative influence to th poll.
The ignorant and vicious, they claim,
least need incentive, for it ia at the
polls they reach the acme of their
personal importance. What evidence
is there of popular value of suffrage
save in the number of votes cast. It is
numbers, after all, that make the qual
ity in elections. The most ignorant
voter' ballot is worth just as much a
that of the best and wisest. There is
no judging of the measure of esteem
for the ballot except in th proportion
it is used by the body of citizen en-
uiieu to use u. . ,
Outlook Not Encouraging.
Will there be a greater manifests.
tion of interest this year than usual,
a larger oarticination in anffrao-.
There are abundant reasons why there
anouia oe, out there ire, on the other
hand, cause that are contrary. The
trend of the body politic' expedience
is not to that effect It is a campaign,
too, that is unprecedented in various
way. The issues are so numern.ua
as to bewilder the ordinary mind. It
u a year in which example in high
position have avoided controversy for
the sake of maintaining neutrality.
Like as not, many a voter will abstain
from a partisan ballot for the aame
reason. Most probably a large, num.
ber, voter will stay away from the
poll because they fee! they can be
better and more agreeahlv emmM
attending to their own personal af
fair rather than the businesi of the
public. With that tort of thing more
ind more reducing the popular vote,
the time approaches when this may
become a government of a few of the
people by a few nf the ftMannla na
a few of the people. And the rest of
the people will be badly fooled.
On the whole, there is no indication
that pomti to an increaie in the
presidential vote this year. The reg
istration figures do tint tnrtire st
Lick of animation and a too widely
prevalent apathy and disinclination to
risk judgment on uncertain annear.
