"Thte la more money than we care to pay," declared Commiesioners George W. Hibba and John S. Langley today. "Wo realize the public voted for the machines and would like to hnvo them. T'is being the caeo we are going to do everything In our power to get them. Wo do not want to fitep out ( n the wrong toot, however, aa a mistake now might he costly for us later on. "Key York state has been 28 years adopting tho voting machine and not all of tbe counties in the entire btato nre ©Quipped with them. The larger cities, however, are now supplied. In our county smaller precincts such as are to be found in some of tho mountain townships and smallei* boroughs can get along without the machines for a while. "On the othw hand in the larger precincts ot tbo city it will take two or more machines for each precinct. .Bach machine is in reality a. voting booth.
