A TORY CABINET MINISTER'S TES- TIMONY. Mr Cross, the Home Secretary in Lord Beacons* field's Cabinet, while speaking at Ormskirk on Thursday, made a speech on the secrecy of the Ballot. Coming from a Tory Cabinet Minister it is of the utmost importance. The Home Secre* tary stated distinctly that the Ballot is secret- ergo the Tory understrappers in the Welsh counties and boroughs who say it is not secret are saying that which is untrue. Mr CROSS, who was loudly cheered, said "I ,,111 bound in this place, for reasons which cause 1116 the deepest pain and regret, to begin my address to you as free and independent electors of South West Lancashire. I wish to remind you that yoU are free. You know that the voting you have to gl"'O on Tuesday next will be for the first tin fo far as this district is concerned, by Ballot. bair- inau has very properly reminded you that unde* the Ballot nobody knows how anybody votes, un* less the person himself chooses to make it kno,"), Bnt tha,t is not quite the extent of the protection which exists under the Ballot Acts as it at pre* sent stands aud it is quite as well that yo11 should be aware of this also, that not only Olle you free as to your individual votes, but nobody pan tell under the Ballot how the peopl0 of Urmskirk as a whole vote. You might have thought that when the papers were turned out 1 would be seen that there was a large number 0 voters in the district voting according to their con- sciences, and voting blue. Such, however, is no the case. because long before the votes are counter the papeis, by law, must be mixed up wih those of Liverpool and elsewhere, so that it will absolutely impossible for anybody', not only to say now any individual man in Ormskirk voted, bu bow Ormskirk voted generally."
