1'roposod Btato Lottery for Japan.
Wo lmvo always admired Japan's
npparontly dotcrmiiiod orusado
against anything in tho form of lot
torios, ana lior strenuous ofTorts to
suppross gambling. It is thuroforn
will! surpriso and rcgrot that wo iind
tho Ohoya, aoomingly in all serious
ness, discussing a senomo for what it
terms a giant lottery, which is not
only to bo tolerated but actually
Sarticipated in by tho Government.
ur contemporary says that numer
ous mon or standing both, wit nut
and without tho Government, aided
by sovoral prominent members of
both Houses, are the promoters of
tho sohemo. Tho idea is to follow
tho example of tho Manila Lottery
in everything but tho price of tho
tickets, which our contemporary says
would bo placed at 80 a piece fl),
tho first prizo being 80,000, the
opinion being that more profit could
bo obtained from slices than from
crumbs. Agents would be appointed
in various parts, Shanghai,llongkong
(i), Vladivostock, etc., and tho com
pany would anticipate being enabled
to pay tho Government tho hand
some sum of 800,000 per annum in
tho form of fees, which amount
would bo devoted to tho cultivation
of tho Hokkaido. Before the com
pany could bo started it would of
course be necessary to alter tho
present, law with regard to Lotteries;
but our contemporary seems to see
no insupornblo dilliculty in doing
this, and says that it is contemplated
bringing forward a bill for this pur
poso at tho noxt session.
This scliomo is seriously propound
ed by one of tho leading Tokio jour
nals, and wo must thoreforo presume
that tho Choya knows what it is
talking about and is not deliberately
trading upon tho credibilit- of its
readers. In tho midst of Japan's
extensive reforms in tho laws of her
land, tho proposition calmly made
to abolish ono of tho best, and step
back to a stage which some of the
most advanced nations of the earth
thought it wiser to quit half a cen
tury ago, is ludicrous and regret
table. Japan cannot afford to re
trace a single stop that sho has taken
while actuated by tho highest prin
ciples for her people's welfare. No
more disastrous way of raising na
tional funds, for whatever purposo,
exists than by means of State
Lotteries. Franco recognized this
only some ton years later than
England and some Gorman States a
little later. The State lottories
now in existence may not be active
agencies for evil, but they have not
been proved as yet to bo national
benefactors. In a country like Japan
whoso people live in the spirit of
"let us eat, drink, and bo morry, for
to-morrow we die," tho idea of a
State lottery is fraught with tho
gravest apprehensions. The people
are now being gradually, yet pain
fully and slowly, won to exercise
some common powers of thrift and
discretion. Introduce tho lotteiy
and all that has been done in this
direction will vanish like a puff of
smoko. With tho naturally careless
spirit of the people, over alive to tho
attractions of chauco gain rather
than tempted by tho solid rowards
of hard and steady work, tho lottery
has an irresistible charm, and sur
plus savings will be gladly sacrificed
on tho altar of a possible prizo of
majestic 'proportions. The absurd
price of the tickots suggested by tho
Choya would, it is true, considerably
limit tho circle of tho lottery's pa
trons, but it would drain tho money
from tho pockets of tho wealthy
minority which is wanted by tho
trade and industries of tho masses,
and tho Hokkaido would bo
lerlmzeu uy the bones of an im
poverished multitude, whilo a select
little party of Diveses fared sumptu
ously every day. If 11101103' is so
urgently needed for tho cultivation
of tho Hokkaido, and wo aro not. for
one moment minimizing the import
ance to tho Empire of tho colony
being utilized, there aro othor ways
it seems to us of raising tho fund
than by robbing Potor. How about
tho little surplus of tho first Parlia
mentary Budget? Wo boliovo this
coveted morsel is still making tho
mouths of the various departments
water. Then thoro is tho expediency
of levying say a colonization tax.
No larger sum than 1 nen per head
' per mouth of Japan's 40 millions
would realizo a revenue of $1,800,0001
Those absolutely too poor to pay 12
gen per annum could find guarantors
for tho amount without much dilli
culty wo should say, and tho result
would not only pay tho cost of col
lection if managed economically,
but place at tho disposal of the
Government a far larger amount
than is calculated for by means of
tho lottery. And that without im
posing any heavy burden on great
or small, and without draining off
tho valuable resources of tho coun
try into pockets whence thoro would

Another Victim at Monaco.
Berlin, Sept. 12. Tho Froniden
blatt has a despatch from- Monaco
giving an account of a sensational
tragedy at that place. Prince Al
bort of Monaco and his wife, tho
Princess Alico, on returning from
thoir recent tour, wore received with
great enthusiasm by tho people of
the principality, the attaches of tho
Casino turning out especially in
strong force to greet him. The little
array of members was drawn up at
tho landing as a guard of honor, and
tho Governor and Council wore pres
ent to dolivor addrossos. Tho can
non thundered a greeting, and tho
sceno was of a most joyous antl fes
tal chnractor, whon suduonly a young
man burst through the throng and
rushed toward Princo Albert and
tho Princess. Ho was well dressed,
but his wild and disordered appoar
anco at onco causod dismay among
tho group which surrounded tho
In his hand ho grasped a weapon,
and boforo anybody could interore
ho raised tho pistol and, putting it
close to his head, fired and foil dead
at tho foot of tho Princess Alico.
The Princess, who had a moment
boforo boon all smiles, nearly fainted.
She gave a cry of alarm and sank
back in tho arms of her husband. A
dozen ofllcors Hprnng forward and
Boizod tho prostrate body, only to
find that life was oxtiuct. Tho life
blood which oozed from tho wound
almost stained tho garments of tho
Princess. On searching tho body
not ovon'n centime was found, but
there was a ticket to the Casino
which told tho story of his fato.
Ho had evidently been overcomo
by despair after Wing all hohad in
the great gambling establishment
which supplies a revenue to suppoit
the Prince of Monaco in luxury, and
had determined to end his life at the
feet of the Prince. Prince Albert
and the Princess were so shocked
that the reception coroinonios came
to an almost abrupt conclusion, and
thov both hurried once moie aboard
their yacht, and sailed toward tho
south. The body of the suicide was
borne to an unmarked grave in the
cemetery which contains so many
victims of M. Blanc's wambling tables.
A Clover Yankee
On the United Stales side of the
lino at Nogales, A. T., oggs have
boon rendered dear by the now tariff
upon them, inasmuch as tho hens of
that region are chiolly owned on the
Mexican side and aro fed chiolly with
Mexican grain. A shrewd Yankee
recently arrived there, and ho was
convinced that his opportunity lay
in tho high price of eggs, so ho
erected a largo henhouse exactly
across tho boundary line. At tho
United States end he provided nests
and at tho other end ho fed his hens
tho low priced Mexican grain. Tho
hens ate the grain in Mexico and
then walked across tho lino into tho
United States to lay their eggs. Tho
transaction was perfectly honest, for
the Yankee smuggled noithor grain
nor eggs. Ho is making money fast.
