A CAMPAIGN OF RIAsO.--The
lottery revenue question, which the
people of Louisiana will have at no
very distant date to pass upon, is one
of the gravest importance. The de
lision may seriously retard or happily
forward her prosperity in a way that
must affect the welfare of the p.esent
generation to a very important degree.
Yet it is a merely economic ques
tion after all, despite air-sawing ora
tory to the contrary; therefore it (
should be discussed before, and weigh
by, the people, as would any other 1
grave business concern-on its intrin
sic merits. This result will be large- a
ly assured by the Progressive League
of Louisiana, an organization whioh
already embraces in its membership
much of the best blood, brains and
,rawn of this city and State. In
view of this impending campaign of
reason, which will give a full hearing
and calm consideration to all phases
of the subject the suggestion of the
League regaxding the signing of Anti
Lottery pledges is timely and appro
,l'iate. A cause that cannot face the
logic of the situation, that substitutes
frenzy for common sense, and seeks to
hind in advance those who may for
the moment have given way to preju
dice or misinformation, is as a house
bnilt upon the sands.-[New Orleans

A BOON FOR SUFFERING WOMAN
If there are times in life that try men's
souls there are also times that try wo
men's souls. As woman's organization in
general is more delicate than man's, so
she has special functions of a far more
delicate charocter, which render her
munch more liable to derangement and
disease, and which require much more
skillful and careful treatment. No class
of diseases tests a physician's skill or a
medicine's efficacy piore severely than
Female Diseases. No medicine has ever
proved more successful in the uenre of
such diseases than Pe-rn-na. In that
most trying of periods, which every mid
dle-aged woman must pass through, Pe
rn-na has proved a true boon to tne sex.
"I had been a great sufferer for three
years," writes Mrs. 8. Smith, of Hills
ville, Pa. "I had given up all hope,
when I commenced taking Pe-ru-na and
Man-a-lin. Now I am as well as ever in
my life." Regulate the bowels with
Man-a-lin. For sale by Henry St. John.
An Anti-Lottery Blunder.
The anti-lottery convention, recently
in session at Baton Rounge, made a
blunder when it asked Congress to
interfere.
Louisiana has an indisputable right
to grant or refuse a charter to a lottery
company, and the general government
has nothing to do with it.
We found it necessary a few weeks
ago to call attention to the fact that
congressional legislation was not need
ed in the matter of original packages,
and pointed to Georgia's example.
In this State where the home rule idea
reigns supreme our people attend to
local affairs themselves, without ask
ing outside permission or assistance.
The original package trouble was set
tled in Georgia in less than a week.
Tihe lottery question should stand
on a similar footing. We had a lotte
ry many years ago, but the people
smashed it when they decided to get
rid of it, and that was the last of it.
Our Louisiana friends should stick to
home rule, and not ask the federal
government to do what they have the
power to do themselves. If the ma
jority of the people through their rep.
resentatives charter a lottery, the mi
nority should submit. If, as the antis
charge, legislators were bribed, the
guilty parties should be hunted down
and punished.
But the circumstances of the case
do not justify the abandonment of the
home rule idea. The action of the
anti-lottery convention strengthens the
centralists and makes it easier for
them to encroach upon the reserved
rights of the States.
A lottery is a bad thing, but it
would be better to let it run twenty
five years longer in Louisiana, than
to appeal to Caesar -[Atlanta Con
stitution.
