lottery nature In connectioa With newspaper notices the department rulesthat it is immaterial whether result of a lottery drawing is published as ne wsvwithout pay the newspapers containing the result awarding such prizes are nonmailable The only ex ceptions made are in cases of newspa pers publishing such matter ia order to expose concerns and crush or cripple their business whichpolicyvis heldto bem line with the spiiitofthe law The department also decides that awarding a prize to a peisan guessinc the nearest number ofseeds in a water melon would be a lottery though guess ing the weight of a melonwould not constitute a lottery if the guesses were made after the melon had been lifted The award of aprize to one supoestine the number of beans in aclear glass bottle in a plain view is also held to be a lottery The only way of removing thechance element is to atfnounce the size of each articleput into it which however would not apply to beans corn oats orother articles of variable

each pulling a different way nothing canbo done in the Senate that docs notreceive the support of the republicans It is because of this fact that business continues to improve democratic attempts to tinker with the finance as they did with the tariff The business men the country know that theerepublican benators can bo depended upon to prevent any disastrous financial leiis ation and hope that they can induce the majority to agree to some tariff amendments that will make the reve nues of the government Sufficient to meet the expenditures before the session closes The House is plodding along

bridge six miles northwest of this city the biidge being used as an ambusciideby the men who performed the operation Mr Curtis who was driving along at a slow gait found his team stopped short by a man at the horses heads ac companied by the admonition frnni the second rascal to hold up his han Is A pistol was held in close proximity to head and he obeyed the sinuDstlin but not until ho had drawn From liii pocket and lei fall into the wagon l ix a roll of bills for about fellows then made a search of Mi Curtis pockets and rounded up seventv uve cents in silver coin but they did not see the roll of bills under his foot Without further ado he was allowed to drive on It is understood that Mr Curtis had taken the money from town to pay a noto and that ia the reason he had so large a sum on his person Tho fellows evidently were not acquainted with this circumstance as they might s easily as not have had it all No description of the parties who performed the robbery can bo secured A

cable sta tion Mr Cleveland is accused of having misrepresented thescntiinent of the Hawaiian government concerning that request for the conssnt of the UmtedStates to such modification of the reciprocity treaty as will permit the island to be leased toGreat Britian According to more direct information no government of Hawaii doesnt want that treaty modified at all if the United States will puly officially define i w future intentions towards Hawaii the request was made not because a modification was wanted but to jrive Congress a good opportunity to declare jtoBlf oa the subject and with the belief that it would be refused Mr Cleveland evidently thought different y or howould not have committed Himself m favor granting the request In the opinion of everybody whose opinion is worth having Secretary Gresham would better have sent the correspondence relating to the surrend er or the two Japanese students who sought the protection of an American consul in China andtheir subsequent execution as spies by the Chinese which was asked for bySenator Lodges resolution to tho Senate without com ment than to have attempted to write a defense founded upon assertations not borne out by the official corres pondence as no did Senator Lodge of Greshnms attempt out of the responsibility Instead of those stud ents being confessed spies our rep resentative in China insisted thnt they were not spies at all and that there was nothing to sustain the charge against them except the assertion of the Chinese How Mr Gresham could find warrant for his interpretation I cannot
