Mr. John B. Lanfttc has addlressed to the

lengthy for publicatihm n our column8, on the
subject of the rule of thel Exchange imposing
a penalty of 25 cents per bale upon all cotton

TAXING THE LOTTERY.
Mr. John A. Mntrls, a so-called elti.en of
New York and a staTdholder in the Louisinna
State Lottery Company, has flied a bill in the
uTnited States Circult Court asking fora writ
of injunction restraining Tax Collector E.
A. Burke, the Attorney (eneral of the State,
the city attorney and others from collecting a
ta' of $6500 assessed on the capital of the
Louisiana Lottery Company by the Board of
Asseseors, on the ground that the assessment
Ib In violation of the charter of the company,
The bill claims that the gambling monopoly,
aooording to its charter, is free from all taxes
after its payment of $40,000 to the educa
Uontal fund or Charity HIospital.
Let us look at the law and soe the brazen
IDnolence of this institution, which, while
iralizlng thousands of dollars per annum out,
of Its corruptly obtained franchises. defies the
State and city to collect taxes from it. Article
118 of the constitution of 1568 reads thus :
Taxation shall Ie equal and uniform
throughout the State. All property shall he
taxedin proportion to its value, to be ascer
tained as directed by law. Tihe (eneral As
sembly shall have power to exempt from
taxatlon property actually used for church,
school or charitable purposes.
Article 5, section 1, of act No. 25 of 11C68,
creating the Louisiana Lottery Company,
"The corporporation shall pay to the State of
Louisiana the sum of $40,000 per annum,
which sum shall be payable quarterly in ad
Vance from and after the first of January,
1869, to the State Auditor, who shall deposit
the same in the treasury of the State, and
which sum shall be credited to the educa
tional fund; and said corporation shall be ex
empt from all other taxes and licenses of any
kind whatever, whether from State, parish
or municipal authorities."
The reader will observe that this act Is in
palpable violation of the constitution, which
provides, in the article just quoted, that "all
property shall be taxed in proportion to its
value." Further, the charter of the Loulsi
ana Lottery Company, granting it to have
been legitimately obtained, was a mere legis
lative grant, and, even if not in violation of
the constitution, which, as we have shown, it
plainly wA.s, was subject to repeal by a subse
quent act of the Legislature. Then it has no
claim to exemption from taxation, for in 1570
the Legislature passed a new charter for the
city, section 13 of which, amended by act
No. 48 of 1871, roads as follows:
Be it further enacted, etc., That all real and
plrsonal property in the city of New Orleans,
whether owned by individuals or corporations,
shall, for the purposes of this act, ie liable to
t.axation, subject to the exemlption specified
by this act.
Section 52 reads thus:
That this act shall go into effect upon its
passage, and that all laws or parts of laws
conflicting herewith be and the same are
hereby repealed, so far as they conflict.
Thus explicity repealing all grants of ex
emption from taxation which the gambling
monopoly might have had under the uncon
atitutional act of 181;.
The Legislature plainly exceededt its pow
era In exempting the Lottery Company from
taxation, as any one may see by reading the
clause of the constitution we have quotebi, in
violation of the letter and spirit of which the
act of 1868 was passed. But waiving the con
stitutional point, the General Assembly of
1871 granted to the city of New Orleans a
charter, conferring upon it the power to tax
all property within its limits, except such as
was exempt under the constitution and the '
provisions of said charter, and repealed all 1
laws and parts of laws conlicting therewith
Now then, in the face of these laws. Mr
John A. Morris, claiming to be a citizen of
New York, but such only for the purposes of 1
bringing suits for the Louisiana Lottery
swindle before the Federal courts, appeals to
Judge Billings to protect his gambling mo
nopoly from its just and equitable share of
the burden of taxation our impoverished and
sorely pressed community are called upon to
If Mr. Morris' petition for an injunction be I
granted, this singular and disgraceful spec
tacle will be presented to the public: The i
property holders, rich and poor, will be re
quired to pay their burthensome taxes; the
merchant, the lawyer, the artist, the mechan
ic, the publisher, will be required to pay their
licenses; realestate. personal property, brains, 1
honest labor and legitimate enterprise will '
all be required to contribute to the support
of our expensive and cumbersome govern
ment and to the payment of the public debt,
while Mr. John A. Morris' gambling monopo
ly, which is fleecing the country out of hun- 0
dreds of thousands of dollars per annum, and
which bought up the late Legislature to de
'feat the people and all measures of real re
form, will go scot free and escape with its
contemptible contribution to the educational º
fund or the Charity Hospital. 1
This case, we believe, is fixed for to-day.
We advise Judge Billings to recuse himself. 1
It Is a well known fact that before his ap
poi.maneat to the Federal bench he was an
as.torney d the Louisiana Lottery Company,
and, be it true or false, the opinion through
out this community Is that he is more or less
under the influence of Howard and Morris.
We suggest, therefore, that he recuse himself
in this case, for if his decision he against the
city In the face of the law, his judlicial integ
rity will certainly be called in question.
THE COUNTRY PRESS OF LOUISIANA.
The Marksvill (Avoylles parish) IHtllelin
We like the general tone of the pl pss of this
State. They are divIde1 d ul'm many issues-
exp ross themselves freely and unreservedly -
still upon one point they are a unit, and this
is the conplelte annihilation of lRadleilRisrn In
the coming camlpalgn. To discuss political
opinions and probabililities thus early is ndl
cative of the fact that they wish to ditsplos of
thlse minor matters preparatory to the greet
onset. The l)mn,woratic press of Louisiana
has been tested1 on many and trying o('nlsions
and never found wanting. Iii the onlming
camlipalgnI. witihout ait single exception, It will
do its duty and do it nobly.
ThIs is a just tributOe IA the Louistiana press.
espelially to the country papers. Dluring the
tein 'years of rec(.ltrulction, when tllere was
little credit, and less money in fighlIng the
thieves and adventlurers who held possession
of this State, the Dl)mocratic papers in the
parishes, as long as they c'ould collect money
enough to keep going, hold up the banner of
the people with a courage and pertinacity
which entitles them to the everlasting grati
tude of their coinstlt~uents. Printing laws
were framedI bv the lRadicala to Rustain and
even enrich the pulllishers of lRadlcal sheets,
devoted to the defamation of our people, and
to crush out the Dlemocratlc papers. In a
measure these infamous laws were success
ful. Many Democratlc papers in the country
were compelled to succumb, and a swarm of
dirty cuid unscrupulous sheets sprung up In
the State, to support which the tax
payers were mercilessly robbed. But
the Democratic papers which survived this
sort of Ht. Bartholomew massacre of decent
journals did the Htate infinite service. They
kept the fire of resistance to Radicalism
alive and burning brightly. Their indignation
never wearie l; their courage never faltered ;
their vocabulary of denunciation of wrong
and robbery was never exhausted. The ene
mines of the State, the plunderers of our peo
ple, won all power and wealth ; but there was
one victory they could not gain; they could
neither debauch the country press nor en
tirely annihilate it, and It lived to scourge
them and often to make then ashamed of their
purple and fine linen. More to her country
press Louisiana owes her redemption froml
Radicalism than to any or all other agenclies.
It Is a little singular to note, therefore, the
illiberality with which the first, Demoratic·
Legislature we secured dealt with the cojnl ry
palpers. The printing law, as it appertains to
t ihe country press, reads as if our Ilenioc'ratic
Legislature considered that, there was no
dlLffrenlce between the vile, slanderous and
infamous sheets which for eight years
miilgned our pelople and fattenedl on tlhe
money stolen from them, and the newspapers
which, through poverty, adversity and sore
temptat ion,fouglht the bIatlt les of the State ahd
did so much to win the victory. Indeed. there
were some worthy and wise Democratic
Conservative gentlemen In the last Legisla
ture, elected on the tide of victory impelled
by the press, who seemed to have as great
a horror of newspapers as the devil has
of holy water. 'l'hese great statesmen,
who owed their piolitical hirth to the
breath of the country papers, were haunted
all through their brief tenure of greatness
with the dread that some Democratic journal
would get two cents per square more for a
public advertisement than It cost the pub
lisher to set It up, and they were never happy
except when hatching up a bill to reform the
Democratic press out of a dollar or two. In
toxlcated with power and greatness, they
were will and furious with the delirium
tremens of retrenchment and reform, ariii
now.papers with serpentine elongations andi
vora(cious stomachs swarmed in their boots
and twined and twisted around their desks
and necks, and all through the session they
were furlioully busy with bills to c.xtermninate
Happily, however, the energy, patriotism
and real ability in the l)emocratic press is
butihing it up again, and it Is now a power in
the land; a power, too, that Is certainly
potent for the good of the people, the
strengthening and consolidation of the Dem
o(ratle party. T'here is no portion of our
editorial labors more pleasant and instruct
irve than the reading of the utterances of our
" country cousins," and there is no column of
the DEMOCRAT which is more interesting and
generally read than that which Is headed
"Views of the Country Press." Louisiana
should he proud of her country journals.
RUSSIA, ENGLAND AND AMERICA.
The representations of the New York Hlirald
in relation to American sympathy with
Russia, as against England, and the efforts
of that paper to write up a popular preojuli(e
against the latter, whatever may be their
effect abroad, are scarcely more than amus
ing to Americans. So far as the government
Is concerned, in the event of war between
the two nations, it would have no in
terest or provocation to violate the
strictest neutrality, either by passivie sym
pathy or active support, and the peo
ple would undoubtedly insist upon such
a course. lint when the Jl'rald talks of the
"anclent and persistent affection" of our peo
ple for Itussia, and asserts that "if she gets
involved in a war with England they will
wish her success and rejoice in her victories,'
it talks absurd nonsense. It would le ex
tremely unnatural if this were the case, or if.
on the contrary, the warm and earnest sym
pathies of the masses of our country were
not enlistred with England, to whom we are
bound by ties of race, thought, sentiment.
creed and tradition such as exist between no
other two nations on the globe. From her we
have inherited all that makes us a great
and distinctive nation---not merely our
constitutional freedom, but also the bias
of thought, the characteristics of race,
the history and tradit'ons that have perpet
uated it on American soil; and should we
ever lose this grand Inheritance, which is as
yet synonimous with our nationality, it will
lie because we have proven false to our Eng
lish blood and traditions. Who were the men
of 1776 that

and from what source did they derive the
lessons of fortitude and forbearance that in
spired them to the accomplishment of their
heroic task ? They were the men of the col
onies, of the "savage island brood," who for
a decade before their revolt bought yearly
more copies of Blackstone than were sold in all
the United Kingdom. It was from this source
that they learned the fundamental truth
that true and enduring liberty Is based on ir
refragible law and not on unbridled license;
and it was the splendid and incorruptible
conservatlism that characterizes their Anglo
H4axon blood which enabled them to avail
theniselves of the lessons of the French revo
lution Iy adding reverence to the reason of
Voltaire and temperance to tthe impassioned
cloquence of Miraheau. It was to England
that was due the vast difference between
.efferson, the .Jacobin of America, and Robes
pierre, the Ja(xrbin of France -and what a
differenen was there! From England, who
bequeathed to us the domination of the
Anglo-Saxon blhul, we derived the great
source of our distinctive national vir
tues, which is the sense of duty, tire
power of pursuing a course' we lie

all considerations of sympathLy or favor. of

our leaders of popular sentiment have in com
mon onl y with those of Englandrlwiho as trans
mlttoed them to us as a cmrnmoln inheritance
with her own children. Other nations have
surpassed us in many qualities t hat are beau
tiful, and in some qualities that are great.
But it is the peculiar tmerit of the Anglo-Saxon
race, in England and Amerlca, that "breyiond
all others it has produer.Y men of the stamlp of

The late scare in the West on the sulbject of
the Communists and Socialists appears to
have thoroughly alarmed the railroads. The
experience of last summer taught these cor
porations how easily a railroad strike can hbe
inaugurated and how much injury it can do
the road. If there is any outbreak or strike
the railroads will be among the heaviest suf
ferers and victims by it. Foreseeing, there
fore, the possibility of serious labor
troubles (luring the coining summer and fall,
the railroads are already in the field and pre
Daring against them. The directors of th.
Chicago roads, for instance, held a con
ference in Chicago the other day, and
authorized one C. C. Bonney, a law
yer of that city to draw up a bill for the
better protection of the roads in the event of
a strike, which bill is to be submitted to Con
gress at once. The title of the bill is "an act
for the protection of commerce among the
States." The principles it enunclates can be
easily imagined. After reciting that the rail
roads are public highways of the United
Btates, which it is the duty of the Federal
government to protect, the bill goes on to
make any stoppage, obstruction, delay or in
terruption of a train a high crime against
the United States; any persons who strike or
conspire to strike, and thus cause the stop
page of a train, or who desert the train at
any depot and leave it on the track, or who
conspire to do so, are guilty of this high
crime, and liable to a fine not exceeding
$10,000 and imprisonment in the penitentiary
not exceeding ten years.
All offenses against this law are to, be tried
by the Federal courts. It Is also specially
provided that military offiecrs of the U.nitel
States are to render their assistance at the
request and under the direction of thie saidl
courts. The bill, especially In the section de
elaring what atIs shall be considered high
crimes against. the United States, is very
broad and practically sends any striker, how
ever quiet, poeaeaable and ordorly he may lie
to the penitentiary; it makes strik ing a crime.
Such is the law which the Western railroads
want enforced in this country; the Western
papers seem o equally pleased with it, and
think that with an eflficient judlge to enforce
it and half a dozen regiments of Federln
troops to hack it up that strikes can be easily
put down this summer.
The delusion that the Federal troops ale a

stronger now than over. Nowhere is the,

down strikes on the United States, to secure

the people are willing to surrender the very
last vestiges of States rights.
It is scarcely likely that the railroads alone
will appeal to Congress for protection against
the strikers; the various manufacturers will
probably propose in a few days some bill sirn

the right to interfere in all troubles between
them anrd their employeeus, on sRome pretext
or other; mine owners will undoubtedly claim
the same right, and all other branches of
business will find, without troublle, some ex

their private affairs.

that this line has been irnninesely improved
during the past year. It htas, In fact, bt.,n al

rail track, laid upon new ties and an excellent

safety and without the appearance of rapid
running, its conne'tions from Cincinnatl and

that the Jackson Route runs two dally trains
to New York and all the principal Eastern and
