I shall read section 113. It is as follows :
The hiring or promising to pay or paying for any horse, team, carriage, cab, or other vehicle,
by any candidate or by any person on his behalf, to convey any voter or voters to or from the poll, or to or from the neighbourhood thereof, at any election, or the payment, by any candidate or by any person on, his behalf, of the travelling and other expenses of any voter, in going to or returning from any election, are unlawful acts ; and every candidate or other person so offending shall forfeit the sum of one hundred dollars to any person who sues therefor ; and any voter hiring any horse, cab, cart, wagon, sleigh, carriage or other conveyance for any candidate, or for any agent of a candidate, for the purpose of conveying any voter or voters to or from the polling place or places, shall, ipso facto, be disqualified from voting at such election, and shall, for every such offence, forfeit the sum of one hundred dollars to any person who sues therefor.
With this amended provision applying only to conveyances belonging to regular cabmen or liverymen, the committee were unable to see, after a full discussion of this matter, where any criminal intent or any consequences that would be corrupt in its character would follow the hiring on election day of the conveyances of a liveryman or cabman for the purpose for which they are uniformly and universally employed at every election. This simply makes legal what has been done with a great degree of impunity without such legislation.
