   New York Times, The (Newspaper) - May 22, 1890, New York, New York                               VOL. NEW-TOEK, MAY 22, 1890. SHE-- TAROT BILL PASSED 8SNT TO TEE SENATE FULL OF AND OUTRAGES. ADOPTED BT THE HOUSE, AFTER A SES- SION MARKED BT GREAT DISORDER, BT A VOTE OF 162 TO 142. 'WABHTOGTOH, May wonderful (jfll has been passed by the House, after less than two weeks of debate, most of which was, consumed by the committee having the bill in charge, and the rest of It in desultory tali that waa encouraged by tho had not been able- to appropriate it to oonunltteo pur- poses. While the vote on the passage of the bill was almost a strict party one, It is not making an ex- travagant assertion to say fhat not one-third of the members of.the House were in favor of the bill, or thought it ought to pass. An amazing Infatuation appears to have possessed tho Re- publicans in disposing of- tho measure. They were deaf to all protests and appeals, and were held together, In spite of tholr individual oon- viotlomr, by the word of command, and by the assurance that a failure to pass it would be disastrous to the Republican Party. The bill goes to the Senate freighted with all the absurdities and outrages with which it was loaded in the committee room; with 200 per cent increase on barley, with the Oil Trnat presented with a duty that will maffS ita membera. opulent; with glass, wool, earthen- ware, hosiery, oakery, and many other things of common use greatly advanced In tax, and the Bonate will be asked to' concur in tho "Judg- ment" of the House. That will be the formal message that the House will send to tho Senate, but tho Finance Committee will hear, In the se- clusion of its meetings to discuss the provisions ot the bill, a great many of the protests to which Mr. MoKJnleys haste and tho exigency of the moment would not permit the Ways and Means .Committee to accord anything but the moat formal recognition. The hope that the Senate will batter the bill so badly that Father McKlnley will be unable to recognize it for His own Is Indulged In by those Republicans who clamored at the last moment for recognition, and vrho will he unabln to show their constituents so much as the record of that teeble effort. The Democrats are not ao much concerned. To amend it as seme of the Republicans desire to amend would not make 1C much batter in prin- ciple. Should the Senate put It through Just as it is. It would illustrate. In its onf orcomont, more oloarly and convincingly than talk, oil the bad results that can possibly flow from au attempt to ptiah partial protection to absolute Comuiun- lam. The Democrats believe that the Senate will that It will noc do to crowd protection so Itujt, that, at the end of the Harrison Adinlnls- every American cltizeu sjiajl uo receiv- ing Ms pro rata share of the plunder taken from all American citizens, to bo distributed to all in the nonjo of patriotism, LIKE UNTO A BEAR GARDEN. The laat hour of the so-called debate on the Tariff bill waa wasted In scenes of the utmost confusion. At times the floor of the House re- minded New-Yorkers of the Stock Exchange In its palmiest days with a panic in sight; only business, however, is transacted on the Stook Exchange, and noue could be done in the House. The hum and buzz of 300 members, which begau before the House was pulled to order, waa onfy momentarily suspended while the Chaplain prayed for the Divine benediction upon the rep- resentatives of the people. It broke out afreaa when the Amen" was spoken, and from that tinaf> until the end of the hour it was next to im- possible to tell -A-hat was going on. Tho House went at once into Committee of the Whole, with Mr. Grosveuor In the chair. The Ohio member appeared to distrust his own power to preserve order, for be made such feeble attempts to exercise it that tha House promptly ran away with him. Mr. Baker of New-York, by dint of loud yelling, secured recognition aud Mked the Houses to put into the WU a provision that articles imported into the United States should not pay a less duty than was Imposed by the country or export on like articles exported from the United States. Mr. Baker mado a little speech In support of his amendment, but the up- roar waa 8O great that-only the official stenog- rapher, who-stood In front of him, had anything Uio a clear Idea of wh'at lie was saying. Mr. Anderson of Kansas talked against the amend- ment, while tares or four others wove making speeches at the same time. Mr. Butterworth, who baa made up his mind to vote for the bill, had enough lung power to make himself heard above the din, and, amid lumultuous applause from the Democrats, ho gava the Ways and Means Committee a very vigorous scoring. With great earnestness he complained that the committee had deliberately cut all chance for an intelligent discussion of the Tariff bill. It had given, no opportunity to members to fliid out what was the consensus of opinion on ita own aide of tho House aa to vari- ous parts of the bill, but had tried to olud tho pollttcal consciences of Representatives and force the bill .through. It had changed the rules and pretended to give some time for debate, and then the members of the committee had taken up the whole time witu their own. amendments. He regretted exceedingly that no ohance had been given to the Republicans to find a common ground on which all could stand. Hediduot know that there bad beeu a Divine decree, or even a command from tha Republican .Party, that the ark of the political covenant should be committed to the hands of a few men in the House. It did not take Mr. Butterworth. lout? to say this, but he waa hoarse when he Itulsheu, for he nad yelled at the top of hia voice tu make him- self heard. While four or five Republicans and as many Democrats were shouting their of vari- ous features of the bill Mr. MoMLUin waa heard telling the House that there were 200 amend- ments that could never ho considered, and that the bill, an it stood, made a net increase of over In duties, not counting many in- creasas for which there were no data. This, he eiolaimed, was the ideal'Republican tariff meas- ure for which they- were called upon to voto without any opportunity for debate. The remarkable Niednnghaus tried to "talk, while 200 of his colleagues yelled to him to apeak louder. McClainmy of North Carolina set tea Houso In a worae uproar than ever, when he heard to cry out: "We ate approaching a, trials, Mr. Chairman." Mr. Bakor was constantly calling for a vote on his amendment, when Mr. Farquhar, remem- bering his Buffalo constituents, yelled out that he protested againat the high duty on barley. 3tr. Biggs California was down In the pit in front of the Chairman, surrounded by fifty members, and shouting at the top of his voice, when Mr. MoKlnley, waving his arms, oanght Chairman Grosvonor's eye, and pointed to the clock, which showed that It was high Mr. Grosvenor dropped the gavel with evident relief. Speaker Read prastied it and be- gan pounding for order. In two minutes he got file House Into some semblance of order, and then Mr. (Jrosvenor reported that the Committee of the Whole had consitlereil the tariff aud had instructed him to report it. to tto Houso, with the recommendation that it bo passed. I was Mr. Springers prompt Inter- jection. The report is not correct. The Com- mittee of tho Whole has given iiu instructions." The Sponker waved him aside with the re- mark that the House had ordered the bill re- ported at 12 o'clock, and Mr. McKiuloy was rec- ognized to demand tlie previous question on the engrossment, third reading, aud paasatfe nt the bill with its amendments. Tho Speaker wna about to declare tho previous question -prdeyod, when a division waa demanded, Mr. Coleinun of Louisiana voted with the Democrats, and tho result was 138 to 128. Before it could be an- nounced tho Democrats demanded a yea-ond-nay vow, and began tho series of roll-calls that Blled tru the rest day. Adams of Illinois ana Bntterworth sat In their seats without respond- ing to their names. Colemau %roted with the DaniocratB. The previous question was ordered a vote of 161 to 143. TH3EE DEFEATS FOK Mr. McJClnley asked Mr. Carlisle on what Amendments the minority would demand eep- prate votes. Tha. minority could not say, so (t was agreed that the amendments adopted in Committee at the should be read In regu- lar order, OHd those on which n vote was not de- juanfled should he considered as passed. SnVnea paragraph covering the duty on tin elate "wsus reached Mr. Carlisle called for to vote, Kbeing a substitute for the origlnalparagruph reported from the Ways and Means Committee. Ihe call had not proceeded far before Mr. Mo- KInleyshowed slims of uneasiness, und before jt was finished he was flying about-the Repub- lican aide ol the chamber In evident distress. He Had seen ono Republican after another desert tho ooninxlttee until there wae actually a ma- lorltr ot the House on record ajrsinstthe omend- Silent.-Anderson of Kansas, Butterworth and SendeiBon of .Iowa, Kelly, of .KanBas, liiid of RtrnnAaota. Jfoson and Taylor of nilnoIn, Thomas if-WlBconain, And MoComas and Mudd of Mary- land had all voted DemocrntB, and the -'totals wero 148 tot the amendment and 151 of voters very slowly. The- scheme worked, and when the recapitulation vcas ended Thomas and lind changed their votes to the affirmative, while the Democrats applauded derisively. The amend- in on t was therefore declared carried by a vote of 150 to 149. It was a mighty narrow escape for MoKinley and a warning of what waa to follow. Tho next amendment on which a vote was had was in the jute yarn paragraph. The committee had left tha duty on Jute yarn at 35 per cent, ad valorem, which Is the rate under existing law. By a typographical error, the rate appeared in the bill aa 30 per cent. MoKinley explained the error, but Carlisle said he thought a vote had better bo taken on the amendment, which wae to restore the missing 5 per cent. Again MoKinley became anxious as the roll proceeded, and with very good reason. The Democrats, as usual, voted solidly In the negative. They were joined by Anderson of Iowa, Feathorston of Arkansas, De Haven of California, Flick. Lacey, Hender- son, and Kerr of Iowa, Lind, Duuncll, and Snider of Minnesota, Taylor ot Illinois, and Kelly. The amendment was beaten and the Speaker again had the recapitulation gone over very slow- ly, while MoKinley worked nard to induce at least one of the deserters to return. This time he failed and the Speaker announced that the- amendment waa lost by a vote of 143 to 144. A loud Durst of applause from the Democrats greeted this actual reduction of existing duty by 'the help of a typographical error and a dozen Republican votes. The amendment taking Boaalan camels' hair off the free Hat and classing it with wools of the third class wae the next to be voted upon. Adams, Comstookof Minnesota, Doll iver, Hen- derson and Struble of Iowa, Llad, and Taylor wero tho Republicans who Joined tho Democrats la voting against this amendment, but they were not enough, and it was adopted by a vote of 143 to 135. This time the Speaker hod the, recapitulation of the vote omitted. Then came anotherdefeat for the McKlnley committee. It had decided that woolen and worsted yarns valued at over 30 cents a pound should pay two and one-half times as much duty us woofs of the nrst class, Instead of twice as much, as In the original bllL Carlisle called tor a vote on the amendment, and it was beaten through the failure of several Republicans to vote at all, and by tho help of Comstook, Hen- derson, and Ken1 of Iowa, Lacoy, Taylor ot Illi- nois, Lind, Struble, Anderson of Kansas, and Pllok, who voted with the Tho vote was 137 to 148. Another cheer from the Demo- crats greeted this second victory. The third and last defeat suffered by the Mc- Klnieyltes was on the amendment to Paragraph 391, making woolen and worsted clothes and knltfabrlos valued at ovor 30 cents a pound pay throe times as much duty na unwashed wool of tho Urst class. It was only twice as much In tlie original bill. The Republicans who joined the Democrats in beating tho Increase were; Anderson of Kansas, Dollivcr, Dunnoll, Flick, Lacey, Liiid, Owen of Indiana, Struble, Taylor of Illinois, Wilson of Kentucky, Corn- stock, and Henderson of Iowa. Tho Speaker ordered a recapitulation, and Mr. Mllllken. who was not recorded, declared that he had voted. The Speaker had his voto added to the Republican column, but MoKinley was unable to Induce any one to ohaug-e hla voto, and the amendment was finally declared lost by a vote of 143 to 140. The last amendment voted upon was the very long provision inserted In tuo bill last night concerning the manufacture of vinegar and the use of alcohol In such manufacture. Nobody knew Just whatthe amendment meant.and it was not read, on the ground that It would take too much time. It was known that the amendment mado very radical changes in existing law, but it was rushed through as fast as the roll ootdd ho called, and that, too. by the help of Covert, Hayes, Taronor, and O'Neil of Massachusetts ou the Democratic side. It was the only voto of tho day in which the Democrats failed to stend solidly together. Party lines were broken on the Republican side, also, forButtorworth, Qest, Cooper of Ohio. Wallace of New-York, Watson, Hitt, and Cheadle voted In the negative. Tlie vote was 104 to 138 in favor of the amendment. ------o ONLY TWO DISSENTING REPUBLICANS When tho last of the amendments had been disposed of, tho bill was ordered engrossed and road the third time, without opposition. Then Mr. Carlisle caujtht the Speaker's eye and offered a resolution which had been agreed upon at a consultation of tho minority members of the Ways and Means Committee In tho morn- ing. It provided that the Torilf bill should be sent back to tlie committee, with instructions to report it back at tho earliest possible day, so ftuioiuU-d its to reduce tho burdens of the people by reducing tlie existing rates of duties rather than by Increasing them up to the prohibitory point. The reading of the resolution was followed by hearty Democratic applause. Mr. Coleman staid with the Republicans whon the vote was taken, and so It wns defeated by the strict party vote of 140 to 164-, while It was the Republican's turn to applaud. Nothing waa left in the way of the final vote on the passage of the bill, and tho roll-call went on with nearest approach to order In the Cham- ber seen during the sitting. Mr. McKlnley had no need to be worried on this vote. The dis- gruntled Republicans, who had been refused a chance to oiler amendments to the bill, to say nothing of discussing: its provisions, had been whipped Into liue with only two exceptions. Coleman of Louisiana and Keatherstone of Arkansas refused to go on record in support of a measure which they could not Justify W their constituents or their own consciences. Each voted no when hia name was called. These were the only breaks from party lines. Both sides called for a recapitulation of the voto, and then tho Speaker announced that by a vote of 162 to 142 tho House hud passed the Tariff bill. Instantly both sides of the House broke into a storm or cheers and hand-clapping, the Democrats shouting plainly tholr belief that tho Republicans had dug their own political grave. In the midst of the dlu Biggs of California shouted to the Republicans: You may rejoice now, but next November you'll mourn." Amid tho applause, with a laugh at this sally, Mr. MoKinley moved that the order requiring the House to meet daily at 11 o'clock be re- scinded, to which there was no objection. A message from tho President was read and then tho House adjourned. It had Uken live and one-quarter hours to ronch the Una! vote after all debute upon tho blU had ceased. A CHECK TO OmtlSTIAN SCIENTISTS. JAMESTOWN, N. Y., May Coroner T. F. Van Duflon had Mrs. E. G. Lovejoy and Mrs. M. J. Smi Ui on the rack. They are tho Christian scientists who treated Mrs. W. A.

Harvey W. Tew, refused to sign the verdict ou thu ground that it was a censure of individual liberty. Coroner Van Du- soii propoges to present the caso to the next Grand Jury. MR CLEVELAND TO PRESIDENT TEXAS, THE IS ASKED TO EX- GO. TO SEARCH FOR COTTRELL. HE 18 VISITED Bi" A PARTS' OF TEXAHfl WHO WANT HIM TO ATTEND THEIB STATE FAIR IN THE FALL. The monibera of the Texas delegation which came to New-York to invite Mr. and Mrs. Grover Cleveland to attend the industrial exhibition at Dallas in October, laet night''formally .extended the invitation to the ex-President and his wife. While Mr. Cleveland waa unahle to give his visit- ore a, definite answer, they returned to their hotel that their hopes -of securing his presence in Dallas hod been greatly increased. During the afternoon Col. A. H. Belo and Congressman C. B. Kilgore viaitcd Mr. Cleve- land at his home in Madison Avenue and ar- ranged for the visit of tho party in the evening. The delegation accordingly left tho Fifth Ave- nue Hotel a little 'before 8 o'clock. It in- cluded Gov. L. B. Ross, Col. Belo, J. 8. Arm- strong, President of tho Dallas Fair Associa- tion; W. C. Connor, Mayor of Dallas; Eoyal Ferris, John Martin, Col. Storott, Congressman Kilgore, Mrs, Alfred Davis, Mrs. Connor, Mrs. Cowen, and Mrs. Martin. John H. Inman ac- companied the Toxans. It fell to tho lot of Gov. Ross to speak for his State. We have come a long he said, ad- dressing the ex-President, "to extend to yon. and to Mrs. Cleveland a cordial invitation to attend our forthcoming Stato fair at Dallas, to be opened Oct. 18 and to close Nov. 2. Our honorable Senators and Representatives have united In the invitation, and I, as the Executive of tho State, do most heartily urge ita accept- ance. "The State of Texas, with her good laws, good schools, light taxation, and cheap and fertile lands, la already inviting an influx of capital and immigration that is contributing to build up her power, wealth, and numbers at a compound ratio, but wo are yot comparatively poor as a people, and are extremely desirous of having all who will assist us in developing our unparalleled resources, now lying dormant. I believe it is a fact that the ingenuity of th.6 American mind has been suf- elcnt to accomplish almost every end desired, but there Is one patent still unsecured, whtph we hops and believe that you, of all others, may yet invent, and that Is, Sir, a patent that shall be sufficient to utterly oblit- erate that imaginary sectional line existing be- tween the people of the North and the South, which has already caused rivulets of patridtlo shed in fratricidal strife, to water the fields of our common country. The people of Texas desire to mend hearte and not to break them, to cloae sores and not to excoriate them, and I promise that if you and Mrs. Cleveland shall be pleased to visit us on the occasion men- tioned, our people will throw wldo open, their their hearts for your reception A FORCE FROM THE M'LANE LEAVES CEDAR KETS. CEDAB KEYS, Fla., May armed expe- dition left the United States revenue steamer MoLane after dark to-night under command of Lieut, G. L. Garden to scour the inland waters for CottrolL .The, expedition woe made up ot a steam launch and a cutter full of men, all armed and equipped. Lieut Garden's foroa numbers twenty men. It was accompanied by United States Marshal Lestrango and deputy. The party will proceed fully 100 miles into the in- terior, going np the Suwanee River as far as it la possible to navigate. The country up which the command has gone la one of the most law- less in the State and is completely isolated from' all telegraphic and railroad communication. It is expected the command will he absent for a weak or-more. Capt. Smyth has given permission to several correspondents of Sew-York papers to accom- pany tho expedition, eaoh. of whom has been pressed in to do duty. A force Is to be lauded In Cedar Keys to-mor- row, it hi said, under command of Lieut. Myrick, to guard the United States Custom House. To- day the people In open dottance reinstated J. R. Mitchell Marshal of Codar Keys. Mitchell was arrested over a week ago by United States Mar- shals H. W. and H. W. Jones and escorted to Jacksonville and lodged in Jail. He returned to Cedar Keys last night under bond and was to-day ordered to rcsumo his former duties hy Senior Warden W. F. Flnlayson, Mayor Cot- trell's partner in business. Tho indictment i au glue ovor Mitchell Is on a charge of conspir- acy with Mayor Cottrell to kill tho United States Collector of Customs. The few good ot Cedar Keys are outraged at the restoration of Mitchell. The feeling continues to-run high hero against the Interference of the United States Govern- ment, but the presence of the MoLane servos to intimidate any and all lawless spirit. Capt. Smyth and the United States Marshals here are constantly in receipt of letters from well dis- posed people urging them te do their best to ex- terminate the Cottrell element. Some of these letters state tliat Mayor Cottreli has shot down no less than ten men; that ho has msulted womon while covering tholr husbands with revolvers, and that ho has struck children carried In the arms of mothers. Ho allot his own sister's husband, ono of the letters states and then cursed the widow for be- ing poor. Every day now and terrible particu- lars develop in the Cottrell reign, and it is now learned that a recent aot passed hy the State Legislature of Florida declared off all indict- ments of a nature which could ho brought against Cottrell up to a certain date, and that this law was passed for Cottroll's own particular benefit- Senator Cottrell, Mayor Cottroll's father, is said to have been instrumental in securing Its passage. The iloLaue steamed out of port at 6 P. M. Her destination is iiot known, but it that her object is to support the expedition un- der command of Liout. Garden. Collector Plnkorton stated to-day that unless he could be assured positively of protection on the flnal departure of the MoLane lie should re- sign tho- Colleotorshlp. A limited number of young men left the place this afternoon. It la reported that they aro endeavoring to Join forces with Cottrell'B band. EYEAUD FOMDIN HAVANA FOILED IN AN ATTEMPT TO COM- MIT SUICIDE IN JAIL. END OF THE PURSUIT OF THE FRENCH ORIME IN PARIS FOB WHICH JUSTICE WANTS HIM. HAVANA, May police here have capt- ured the Frenchman, Miguel Eyraud, who in July laat murdered Notary Qouffe' In Paris. Eyraud registered at the Hotel Boma under the name of Miguel Doski. He claimed to be a native of Poland. .When he waa In joil he attempted to commit suicide by cutting the veins in his arm with a pieco of gloss. He lost a great deal of blood before medical as- slatanoo could be obtained, hut the doctors at- tending him say te will recover. In his trunk wore found several French newspapers contain- ing the details of his crime. A pistol and a dag- ger were also found in the trunk. In addition to tho police officials, who have pictures of the murderer, several persons have identified the prisoner aa Eyraud. and doors and entertainment.' Mr. KUgoro spofce for tho Tome delegation In Congress, which, ho had been requested to repre- sent. He paid a tribute to his great State. Ita he said, will take infinite pleas- ure in testifying to their appreciation of you and yours and in greeting you in their own sunny olimo." In closing, he presented to Mr. Clove- land a written invitation to attend Jtbe fair from the Senators and Congressmen. Mr. Cleveland replied that he had long wished to visit Texas and the Southwest, and that he appreciated tho Invitation highly. He was very anxious to make the trip, but he did not feel that ho could make a promise so for ahead, as any plans he might moke might be changed by cir- cumstances. But he would do what he could to gratify bia visitors and himself. Mrs, Cleveland fluid that she should be delighted to visit the Bouthwest and Mexico if it possible to do so. Mr. Cleveland asked many questions as routes to be taken In a trip as to the time it would require, and as to the dates which best suit his viaitora in case he was able to accept {heir invitation. After a half hour's informal chat the delegation's members re- turned to their hotel, delighted with their recep- tion Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland. Ex-President and Mis. Qrover Cleveland are expected to be the guests this evening of the fair now in progress m the old Armory Hall at Broadway, Thirty-fifth and Thirty-sixth Streets, fur the benefit of the Mission of Our Lady of the Rosary at Castle Garden, for the protection of immigrant gltls. The distinguished guests be received by the oonuuittoo having charge of the fair. Mrs. Cleveland will ho the guest of the ladles of the floral booth, while Mr. Cleveland will look over the attractions of the talr. The Man- hattan College band -will furnish music for the occasion. Tho success of the fair, which Is to continue only a few days longer, has exceeded the most sanguine expectations of its managers. Tho crime with which Eyraud la charged IB the murder of tho Civil Marshal July 25 last. Eyraud was a married man, but of spendthrift habits, which got him into financial difficulties that threatened his speedy imprisonmont unifies settled. Gabrlello Bompard was a dissolute wo- man whom Eyraud hod in subjection to his wishes, and in his straits he concootod a scheme of robbery and murder in which sho was his stool pigeon and accomplice. Tho Marshal 6ouff6 was known to have money; Gahrlello Bompard attracted hla attention and he made an appointment to visit her at her apartments, 3 Rue Truson Ducoudray, a side street to the Champs Elysoes and near tho Presi- dent's palace. The woman was seated on knee when Eyraud. crept up be- hind with a slip noose, which he threw over QouffiS'a head, and, drawing It taut around his neck, strangled lllm. Tho money results of the murder woro only about ffl30, and Eyraud and the woman gathered money from tliolr relatives and from every available source and fled, first to England, then to Canada, to Vancouver, to California, wnero tho woman deserted him for another Frenchman and re- turned to France. Eyraud continued his wanderings to Philadel- phia and Canada and back here, whoro, In Jan- uary, he learned that French detectives wore on. his track, when hoovadod a board bill, borrowed more money and valuables, and left for parts unknown, to ho ultimately found and arrested as above described. ANTI-LOTTEST MEN STRONG. A TEST VOTE SHOWS THAT THEY CAN CHECK THE MAJORITY. NEW-ORLEANB, May first vote on tho lottery question came up In the House to-day and showed the antla in an unbroken phalanx of thirty-eight votes, a minority, but enough to hold the aggressive majority in cheek. The question came up on declaring vacant the seat of Alphonse FJhlllips, member of the House from the Twelfth Ward of New-Orleans. Phil- lips is a fugitive from Justice, charged with the forgery and embezzlement of some or He realized on soourillos Intrusted to him as notary and attorney to tho. extent of some and abandoned his home some ten months ago and fled' with a blonde siren to Eu- rope. After a prolonged debate- the motion to unseat was carried, the fifty-three lottery men voting yea and the thirty-clKht autla no. The Governor will probably exorcise hie own pleasure about ordering au election in place. Since the fugitive legislator been convicted of no crime and it requires a forty- three vote to expel a member, it can only done on presentation of formal charges. The lottery matter which to-day is causing the most comment la the refusal of the two legis- lators from tho Pointe Coupec, district to vote to submit tho lottery extension question to tuc people of the parish. A petition was drawn up and waa signed by 315 men of tha parish aftklni; Senator Provosty and Representative- Bachelor to voUj according to the wishes of their con- stituents. A delegation, headed by Mr. Alfred Hobrand, presented the legislators with tho document to-day. Tho Senator and Representa- tive politely but firmly declined to bo swerved from the position they nad taken. The pro-lottory mon hold a meeting hist night, and soy that most cheering news from all parts of tho Stato is coming In, not the least of which is tho announcement that a Pro-Lottery League is being formed in New-Orleans, and that a mass meeting is to bo hold in that city to indorse lottery company.
