Dupuy de Lome, of Spain, had not
called at the state department up to
non Moncfay to present a protest
against burning of aSpanlsh Hag by
students at Newcastle, Del., as Madrid

If a protest is made, It will follow
the usual course In such cases, and be
referred to the Delaware authorities
for explanation of the facts. If
these disclose a substantial Indignity,
the federal government will make an
apology deemed desirlable. But, as a
rule, the pranks of students have not
been construed as an indignity requir
ing an apology.

For Coming City Election.
What Can and Should' Be
to Prevent Frauds,
The Salem city election will be held
Monday, December 7th, for mayor,
aldermen, marehal, recorder aud treas
Thero Is no law requiring registra
tion of voters, but a list of legal
voters should be mado up In each
The Journal believes that n cor
rect list of legal voters could bo
mado up by tho citizens of each warU
arid published, and a voter who Is
not clearly and lawfully entitled "to
voto should not bo allowed to cast his
DA canvass could bo mado by a dis
interested person iu each ward of tho
city, and tho actual bona fide resident
voters enrolled. Tho completed roll
of voters should be published, and
names purged or added to It, of any
who are not voters, or who are en
titled to bo on tho roll. Then no
person not on theso rolls should bb
allowed to voto in any ward at tho
coming city election.
Who has a right to voto In each
waid is a question of fact and law.
The people who live In each ward and
pay the taxes ought to bo Interested
in knowing who aro tlio legal Voters
In that ward. Tho candidates for city
offices aro most Interested in securing
their election. They nro little Inter-
cstcd In an honest election except 89
far as It affects their own Interest,
If the taxpayers want an honest flec
tion they must sco to it that none but
legal voters cast a ballot. If a man
votes who has no right tp vote he
should be prosecuted, and thoso who
got lilm to vote should bo prosecuted
All recall city elections where uearly
as many votes wero cast on each side
as thero were malo residents of tho
ward. Colonizing, repeating and barn,
lodging aro common practices at hotly
contested city elections,
"Let us have a pUro ballot at this
election" is tho demand of citizens of
nil parties. The Journal will conj
tribute to this end. It has no candi
dates to promoto by dishonest means.

PLAN OF ENROLLMENT,
The Journal bclloycs a disinter
ested enrollment of actual
voters is necessary. This!
enrollment should not be mado by
candidates or political managers, but
solely for the purpose of ascertaining
who aro legal voters at tho coming
oily election. It would cost about ten
dollars for each ward, to make up u
correct list of thc-vnters,glvlng names
and residence and then have tho same
copied and publicly posted. Achai;
lenger would then havo to bo em

with a roll of tho lawful voters und
check them off , as they appear. Per
sons attempting to voto should bo
noted and either called on to prove
their citizenship or else swear in their
vote, when it could bo legally investi
gated. In this way order and legality
would be enforced In our elections,
