For Honest Elections To free Arlniiisas oledions, l.'iriy Democratic priniiirtcK, from the scandalous im'KiiliirilicK which have frequently, chanictenml them, tliu Helena World sniigesU:; 1.—Provide that no person cim pnrctmsc a poll tax receipt separately from payment of Ills personal tuxes. 2.—Provlt^ that all rtclinqu'unt pmoiml taxes cliaijjed to :in Itidlvktmil be paid before he can set a poll tax receipt, Make (Ills provision applicable and In force only as to personal taxes becoming due iiwl payable after January 1. 19.15. 3.—1'iovlde for a secret ballot. The World admits that the prospect for the adoption of these provisions is not particularly brife'hk And for our P;H-(, although we can xee considerable merit in llicin, wo'aru not certain that tin 1 }' should be .adopted. The- World's,' proposal* would eer- Iniiily lend to climiiiate t!ic iiniiraper > purchase and dislnbntioii of prill lax, receipts' by persons interested in the outcome of elections. -They would also, however, tend to disenfranchise a large ' patt of the,-electorate.' To issue poll tax receipt^ only to' pcrsou'iil. property taxpayers would be, in• effect, to set up a property iimililiualion for voting. It occurs to us that the same advantages mijrhl be iicliiqml by adopting the proposal to move the ^rimmy:',' election day. back to March. This' ouaht to plofti-e. the candidates' Ijewiuse it would permit tliem to rest in the • shade- during the Jtily'aml Ajtigjisl liuat. II would also eliminate (hc-Voll lax ; abuse, because it would make nuccs- ' ,saiy the purchase of poll tax, receipt.s nearly a year iii advance of the election. -Prospective candidates or otliera interested in elections would not be likely to inane heavy investments in receipts fhiit, fai- ahead of time. Neither our suggestion 'nor the, World's, of course,; would eliminate the ,worst abuses,',which,are the result of the connivance or ithe tacit acquiescence of local election officials in illegal voting. That will be'remedied when cen- ttal committees ami prosecuting officials put their backs iii) and stop it and not before.
