THE ELECTORAL LAW OF SPAIN. The Madrid Gazette publishes the new electoral law announced several days back :â" Every Spaniard 25 year of age has a right to vote. The only persons dis- qualified are the following :âConvicts not rehabilitated; men under criminal accusations at the moment of the elections; those deprived of their political rights;, individuals against whom a judgment has been given, declaring them incapable of managing their own affairs; bankrupts; insolvent traders or manufacturers; and individuals prosecuted to re- cover payment of their taxes. Soldiers and sailors will vote at the places in which they are garrisoned, provided that they have a two months' residence. All electors dwelling in the communes and engaged in trade are eligible to municipal functions; they may also form part of the provincial councils provided they do not occupy any office paid by the local government or the State. No government functionary is qualified in the province, district, or commune in which he holds his office. The functions of deputy are incompatible with any post requiring the holder to reside away-from Madrid, and the acceptation of the former implies the resignation of the latter. The elections for the Cortes will take plaee by provinces. Those returning from six to nine deputies will form two circumscriptions and those of ten and upwards, three. The Balearic and Canary Islands are to be the object of a division in which their particular situation will be taken into account. There is to be a deputy for every 45,000 inhabitants, and for a fraction above exceeding 22,500. The ballot will last three days, and a special decree will fix the mode of voting in the islands. The electoral lists will be made out from the 15th to the 25th November. The number of deputies is to be 350.
