Give Heed a Little Going Over and Ileceiv a Cruel Cut from a Democrat Anothe Extension ot Appropriations Wanning ton City Items WASHINGTON CITT July The pregi dent sent the following message to con yesterday The recent attempt to secure a charter from the state of North Dakota for a lot tery company the pending effort to ob tain from the state of Louisiana n renewa of the charter of the Louisiana State lot and the establishment of one or more lottery companies at Mexican towns nea our border have served the good purpose of calling attention to an evil of vast pro portions If the baneful effects of thasi lotteries were confined to the states tha give the companies corporate powers anc a license to conduct the business the citi zens of other iitates beingpowerless to ap ply lagal remedies might clear themselves of responsibility by the use of such mora agencies as were within their reach Debauches AH the People But the case is not so The people o the states are debauched and defrauded The vast sums of money offered to the for chapters are drawn from the people of the United States and the gen eral government through its mail system made the effective and profitable me dium between the lottery company auc Its victims The use of the mails is quits as essential to the companies as the state license It would be practically impossi We for these companies to exist if the pub lic mails were once effectively closed against their advertisements and remit ances The uise of the mails by these com panics is a prostitution of an agency only ntendedto serve the purposes of a legiti mate trade ami a decent social intercourse Official CorniptfoTi Imputed It is not necessary I am sure for me to attempt to portray the robbery of the joor and the widespread corruption oi public and private morals which are the necessary incidents of these lottery schemes The national capital has be come a sub headquarters of the Louisiana jottery company aud its numerous igents and attorneys are conducting here business probably involvins a larger use if the mails than that of any legitimate msiness enterprise in tho District of Co umbm There seems to be good reason o believe that the corrupting touch of hose agents has been felt by the clerks in he postal service and by somo of the po ice officers of the District of Columbia Ittulicul Legislation Suggested Severe aud effective legislation should be promptly enacted to enable the post department to purge the mails of ill latters newspapers and circulars ro ating to this business Tho letter of the postmaster general which I transmit herewith points out the inadequacy of the existing and I suggest leg islation that would be effective It may be necessary to so regulate the carry Ing of letters by the express companies as to prevent the use of those agencies to maintain communication between the lot tery companies and their ngents or cus tomers in other states It does not seern possible that there can be any division of sentiment as to thp propriety of closing the mails against thfese companies and I therefore venture to express the hope thai such proper powers as are necessary to that end will be at once given to the post office department The Accompany Ing Doeum on ts Accompanying the message are two doc uments one n letter of the postmaster general directiug the presidents attention to the subject the other a compilation of the laws relating to lotteries heretofore together with the decisions of courts defining those laws In his letter to the president ttia postmaster general that the urgent necessity of tho case Impels him to anticipate his annual report by this special communication iu regard to the use of the mnils by the Louisiana y company The Delightful SUMMER RESORTS OF

What our Customers Say:

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
