Mr. NEILL:

I used the expression
"naturalized" as an illustration; but there are other conditions attached to this act-for instance, the voter has to be two months in the district. That is all I want to cover. Anyone reading the clause that I wanted to strike out would suppose that any person would be entitled to vote who produces a discharge from the naval, military or air forces. The clause does not say, "and who has otherwise complied with the act, or has been twogmonths in the district." Apparently all that is required is that he shall produce his discharge.
The 'CHAIRMAN: He must have the
essential qualifications, and then if he has the other qualification he is entitled to vote.
