FOR STATE TREASURER,

OF ORLEANS.
THE CHARITY HOSPITAL AND THE
LOTTERY.
We notice the following advertisement in a
largo number of the Northern and Western
newspapers:
The Charity Hospital at New Orleans enjoys
deservedly a world-wide reputation. In the
present aillicted condition of the Crescent
Jity it seems providential that its existence
has been maintained by the liberal gratuities
received through the famous I ouislana State
Lottery Company. The drawings of this in
stitution take place monthly on the second
Tuesday, and for information address M. A.
Dauphin, P. 0). box 692, New Orleans.
Our eyes have nie''r before fallen upon so
base and infamous in advertising dodge as
this. ])uring the I evailing epidemic we
have seen many mean and heartless things.
We saw with our own eyes a heartiless ecoun
drel threaten to turn at widow and her two
children, the latter yellow fever convales
cents. out of a miserable shanty, not worth
five hundred dollars, because the wretched
woman could not pay her rent. Besides this,
we have seen other mean, contemptible and
cowardly things done in the midst of this
great calamity, showing how much of little
ness and meanness there is in poor human na
ture. But we have met with nothing in all our
experience which compares with this scheme
of the Louisiana Lottery Company to enlist
the best and noblest impulses of human na
ture in its swindling gambling scheme.
In this period of universal affliction all
classes of the community have sunk their
antagonisms and interests in a commnon ef
fort to serve humanity. The minister of the
gospel, the gambler, the merchant, the pros
titute, the mechanic, the landlord, the ten
ant, the politician, the banker and the capi
talist have, one and all, resolved themselves
into a great Ibrotherhood to serve humanity,
and each and all of them have, for the time
being, forgotten their ordinary avocations.
Not so, however, with tli, Louisiana Lottery
Company. That institution grins and laughs
in this (lay of calamity and puts forth a lying
advertisement, based upon our great aflliction,
to enlist the aid and support of the charitably
inclined in its nefarious and swindling
schemes.
Every Louisianian must blush with shame
when lie finds that, under an iniquitious act
of a Louisiana Legislature, purchased by the
basest and most open bribery, a gambling
monopoly may dare to advertise that, upon
its charity and bounty the Charity hospital
of New Orleans is enabled to fulfill its
mission.
It seems to us that the true and noble gen
tlemen of several by-gone generations, who
established this great institution, which for
half a century has hcen the glory of New ()r
leans and the envy of the other cities of the
Union, must turn in their tombs when this
foul and brutal advertisement is read over
their dust.
Are there not venerable physicialns in New
Orleans; are there not younger though
qlually eminent physicians amongst our
faculty who will denounce the false and
presumptuous pretensions of the Louisiana
Lottery Company? Gentlemen of the medi
cal faculty of h ow Orleans, has the existence
of the Charity HIospital "been maintained by
the liberal gratuities received through the
famous Louisiana State Lottery Company?'
(Gentlemen of the State government; citizens
of Louisiana! D)oes this great institution, the
pride of our city, the exemplification of the
charity of several generations of our people,
and the field for over half a century of the
Investigations and labors of our greatest
physicians, indeed, owe its continuance to the
beneficence of Charlie Howard's lottery
swindle? God of Heaven! to what a pass has
poor New Orleans come when, in the midst of
a fearful pestilence, a wretched gambling
monopoly may rise up, claim to be the only
support of our hospital and use its power
over us to advertise its swindling gambling
schemes North. East. South an.d West!
The Charity Hospital was established many
years ago; for more years than we can re
member it was the cherished institution of
our State: the mo-t eminent physicians of our
city attended i it: it was a refuge for the poor
and destitute sick; and even men of wealth
without families resorted to it in time of sick
ness, because there they found just what the
destitute sick found--the ablest and most
thorough medical attention. The names of
all our philanthropists and of all of our great
physicians are identilied with the history of
the Charity Hospital, anterior to the era of
political scoundrelism which brought into ex
istence the Louisiana Lottery Company.
Under the restoration of honest govern
ment in this State, a strong and, we believe,
successful effort is going on to restore our
great and noble hospital to what it was in
former times, and we resent with indignation
the presumptuous claim of tihe Lottery Com
pany that, upon its bounty depends the exist
ence of that hlstitution. "In the present
afllicted condition of the Crescent City it
seems providential that its (the Charity Hos
pital) existence has been maintained by the
liberal gratuities received through the Louis
" I.a State Lottery Company."
Gentlemen of the State and l..ity govern
tj gentlemen of the medical faculty
Orleans, is this avertisement
true? We are almost tempted to call
by name upon the eminent and humane gen
tlemen who lead our medical faculty for a
specific answer to this question.
Of our citizens generally, of the people of
the South generally, we do ask this question:
Is it not a scandal and a shame that a
swindling lottery company, holding a charter
which It bought by the most open bribery.
from a currupt Legislature, and by which it
has robbed and impoverishel innumerable
peop le may set itself up as the stay and
only support of the Charity Hospital of New
Orleans, and as such advertise its swindling
Rslhemes throughout the Union? We pause for
a reply.
HAYES AT ST. PAUL.
Ilayes' speech at St. Paul is represented to
have been entirely free Irom partisan bias.
Tihe Now York 7ribulon speaking of It says:
"Carefully regarding the proprieties of his
position, he said not one word in reference to
the merits or demerits of either political
party, or the claims of either to public conil
dence. Ills address was one which perfectly
conmported with the character of a non-politi
cal assemblage, and with the ollicial station
he ills. It was a clear and dispassionate re
view of the financial, commrnrclal and indus
trial triumphs of the nation since the close of
the war."
This palaver of the Tribunor might go for
something if that paper itself did not pro
ceed immediately after indulging in it, to
give it the lie direct by applying the address
to the most radical and malignant of party
purposes. Whatever may have been the tone
of the address, the uses to which it has been
put are the best indication of the motives that
prompted it, and the ulterior objects Hayes
had in view in delivering it. Scarcely had
Hayes made his concluding bow to the "non
political lassemblage" with the character of
which his address so "perfectly comported,"
before we hear that this same address is to be
published and distributed as a Republican
campaign document, The Tribilll announces
this fact and commnends the address as "one
of the best cam'paign dotuments for the Re
publicaan party that could be issued," in the
very article in whlich it applauds its non
partisan temper.
It would be to) ungenerous to suggest that
Hayes is not in sympathy with the party in
the us(es to which it proposes to put his ad
dress and the swe'eping claims set up to all
retrenllc)llent and reforll in governm lental
expelnses hte has shown. Yet, in his failing to
attribute any of them specilically to either
party is rarely suggestive of that "ancient
weazel" order of wisdom for which Hayes is
i ost conspicu'lous.
The following Washington special to the
New York S1n0, showing where the credit
belongs for the retrenchmenis Hayes
enumerated in his address at St. Paul, ex
plains his reticence on that occasion and his
su.spicious silence in regard to the "merits or
demerits of either political party, or the
claims of either to public confidence," which
the 7'ribune commends as so consistent with
the "proprieties of his position:"
In his speecll in St. Paul, IHayes shows the
advance of Democratic notions of retrench
ment by parading reductions in the expendi
tiures of the government largely due to the
D)emocratic majority in the House. The an
nual recapitulation of the net expenditures in
the last fifteen years, and which makes every
possible allowance for the deficiency appro
priations, shows that the largest annual re
duction made in the ten years covered by
Ilayes' figures must be credited to the appro
priation bills passed at the first session of the
Forty-fourth Congress, a reduction twice the
size of the annual average reduction. Nearly
half the reduction put forward by Hayes
as made in live years was made in a single
year by the same House. Had it. not been
for these reductions the amount raised
by taxation, an amount which has shrunk
not owing to tile repeal of taxes in the past
three years but owing to the reduction of bus
iness, must have failed to meet the expendi
tures of the government, and instead of sav
ing from twenty to thirty millions a year,
which the I)emocratic House made possible,
the national treasury would have run
behind year by year, the contributions
to the sinking fund would have been
sulspendled, and instead of the credit of the
government improving until its demand notes
are worth coin, its credit must have grown
worse.
From this it would appear that Hayes was
wiser In his silence than even the Tribune has
accounted him, and it would have been well
for the Tribune and the Republican party
managers to hlav' followed his shrewd ex
ample.
The Seunt expresses sympathy for the
Grants. It hopes Orville will be restored to
his reason. It is even unwilling that its un
yielding opposition to a third term should be
construed otherwise than to mean an ardent
desire that the General shall realize "all the
Illasure and advantage hIe can derive from
prolonged absence abroad."
In an Interview published in the Washing
ton P'ost, Kellogg is made to say: "The Re
publicans have been too d- d conscientious
about things, and the result is they've
dwindled themselves down to a small minor
ity." We fail to recall a single incident that
justifies so grave a charge as this. We had
an idea, that it was a lack of conscientious
ness that had brought the party to its present
stress. When a thief is in jail it is not fair
to say of him that he has gone back on him
self. The fact that he does not continue to
plunder is due, not to over-conscientiousness,
but to the grip the minions of the law have
on his throat. Give the party a chance, Bill,
and it will come up, even to your require
ments.
In the death notices this morning will be
found the name of George Folger Southmayd.
the young son of our friend MJr. F'. R. South
mayd. The people of this city and those of
the whole country will deeply sympathize
with Mr. Sonthmayd In his sore aflliction.
From the beginning of the epidemic as secre
tary of the Howard Association he has been
untiring in his devotion to the sick and dying,
not only of our own city. but to those of all the
towns and cities afflicted by the pestilence. It
is certainly an exceptional hardship that while
he was devoting his days and nights to the
sick and destitute his own beloved child was
stricken to death by the fever.
The child was a bright, intelligent little fel
low, the idol of his father and mother. The
whole community join in the great sorrow
which has befallen our friend's household.
