A few days ago the Mountaineer asked
why, if Mr. Hanna was bo sure of carry
ing the Pacific coast states, that he sent
out one of their strongest speakers, Hon.
Thos.' B. Reed, to stump California.
We do not know. Here is another. If
Hanna was not sure of carrying Illinois,
Indiana, and Ohio, each of which states
has a larger electoral vote than the
three coast states combined, why does
he spare Hon. Thos. Reed from those
states to fool away bis time in Califor
nia? It is very easy to a9k questions..
Mr. W, B. Pressby, chairman of the

COUNTING THE BALLOTS.

Rowe's sawmill, a few miles down the
river on the Washington side, was
burned Wednesday night between 10
and 11 o'clock. This was practically a
new mill, fitted up with the latest im
proved saw mill machinery. It is now
a total loss. It was insured for $1,200,
about one-fourth its value. The fire
was of incendiary origin, but there is no
clue to the perpetrator. The high
water had removed all saw dust and
debris from around the mill, and having
a sheet-iron roof, it could not have
caught fire by accident. Mr. Rowe will
probably rebuild, but he will not do so

The vote of Oregon can be counted
very quickly, owing to the simplicity of
the ballot and the few names it contains.
Each ballot will have but four marks
upon it. The vote of The Dalles should
be counted within three hours atter the
pollsclose, and the complexion of the
state should be known by midnight, un
lesss it is so close that the outlying pre
cincts aDart from' telegraphic communi
cation must be waited upoq. In
most cases these outlying precincts
will only serve to swell McKin
ley 's majority. Grant, Harney and
Crook counties are concededly Republi
can, and if it should chance that Bryan
has a majority of those counted on
Wednesday morning, which is a very
wild supposition, the vote of these dis
tant counties will overturn it.
In regard to the vote of other states,
while we have an advantage in time, 6
o'clock in JNew York being - about three"
hours earlier than the same hour in
Oregon, there are blanket ballots con
taining hundreds of names,' and the
work of counting will be necessarily
slow. The last two ' presidential elec
tions have been singularly free from un
certainty. It was known at 10 p. m. on
election day in 1888 that Mr. Harrison
had defeated Mr. Cleveland, and it was
known with equal certainty at 11 p. m.
on election day in 1892 that Mr. Cleve
land had defeated Mr. Harrison. But
in the election of 1884, when Mr. Cleve
land defeated Mr. Blaine, the official re
sult hung in doubt over the vote of New
York for days.
Since the laBt national election almost
every state which had not then adopted
the Australian ballot has, by state en
actment, prescribed some form of secret
ballot either based upon, or closely re
sembling, the Australian system. Ore
gon has complied with the system in
about all respects except registration
one provision that belongs absolutely
the system and without which it does
not much improve the character of the
ballot, since it does not prevent coloni
zation of voters. There is no preventive
against a carload of hobos coming into
the city of Portland a day in advance of
the election, stowing away in the North
End, and then going out Tuesday "to
sweli the Bryan -vote.
The old system of voting prevails in
Georgia, Louisiana, North and South
Carolina. In tbe first three states
named the old open-ballot system is still
in vogue, and the election machinery is
in the hands of the state authorities.
In South Carolina there is what is called
a "reform ballot," the object of which is
to restrict tbe votes of illiterate negroes.
Connecticut has an enyelope system and
New Jersey prints each party ticket
upon a separate ballot.
The fusion tickets will add a further
element of difficulty in tbe presidential
count this year. Fusion has been ar
ranged between the People's Party and
the Democrats on the electoral ticket in
every Democratic state but Tennessee,
Mississippi, Georgia. Alabama, Florida
In several of the Southern states,
while there has been no formal fusion
between the Republicans and Populists
on state, legislature and congressmen,
local arrangements have been made that
amount to fusion, and will have more or
less to do with the result.
