The Lottery R!!II Sidld. ;i
And Thereby ars a Tale-Is it tfiti
Breash ofet Faith.
[X. O. Times.] in t
Governor Nichoolls, on Thurday fair
morning, approved that sct repealing
the charter of the Louisiana State
Lottery, which passed at the last ses
sion of the legislature. T
The act will be promulgated in the
offiial journal on Monday morning.
The publication of this executive like
act in the Times oflast evening os- in .
tensibly created a pecunliar sensation, veal
and among certain gentlemen promi
neat in politics in the winter of 1877
there was undisguised disgust. mat
One gentleman, knows to be one of I
of the prime movers In establishing m
the present governmetht, stated, to
a 2~se reporter that this promulga
tion which finally consumated tihe Pe
repeal of the act chartering the rest
Louisiana Lottery Company violated the
a solemn compeat which was known ,,
at thie time to every man in Odd
Fe lows' Hall and certainly to every P A
member of the legislature.
He denied to furnish any details of or
the transaction, but did not hesitate
ito say that the signing of the acst re dist
piealing the charter of the company d
F violated a pledge which no governs pla
ment should ever break.
The 'Times reporter, later in the i
I afternoon, was no fortunate as to di Ac
i cover another gentleman, equally
i responsible, well informed, and much leg
i more communicative, whose recol. hi
lection of the circumstances appears nl
to be clear.
Having been afforded an insight to nisi
the inner ring in political couneils es
r during the exciting January of 1877, dri
Shis iunformatino was that at t a joint S
ceaucus of the Nicholls legislature
I then in session at Odd Fellows' Hall. or'
i a committee was appoiuted to wait
is upon Mr. Charles T. Howard, presS. or
r dent of the Louisiana State Lottery,
s and ask his money and influence in m
I behalf of the "good cause." ,
In consideration of this money and e
- influence, the Democratic party, I
through its representatives, the joint I
caucus, pledged its faith to never by
futuae legislation, attempt to abridge'
curtail r divest the Louisiana State
Lottery of the rights gralsed under Ph
its charter.
I. The report is that Mr. Howard ex.
plained to the committee that the de. onj
i tails of his business were much too eu
n absorbing to afford him time to trans
e act any business of a political char. P0
it acter, and he referred the committee ti
r. to Mr. John A. Morric, his confiden- el
. tial partner, and a large stockholder
ra in the company, who would respect*
t, fully hear their proposition and no
a doubt devote the attention ts great ti
a importance deserved. ev
. The story is that the eommittee or
waited upon Mr. Morris and reiterate jou
h ed the propositiot made to Mr. How- ml
rard. It was at once entertained, te
I whether at the rsAt interview or one o
immediately subsequent is not alto. P
Sgether clear, but it seems certain that of
Mr. Morris banded the committee
several thousand dollars.
SMatters are reported to have gone jut
eon swimmingly for some time after C
this, and it is amid the relations be.
Stween the committee and Mr. Morris Pt
were extremely conlidential, but end- P
denly some one offered in the house a8
Sbill repenling thIe charter of the Lou
Iasiana Lttery Companly, and it nal
.ly gpesed that body. The nest i- P
terview with Mr. Morris does not dt
r- appear to have been so condential.
It is intimated that he ezprestsed a
doubt in the leuneiraeas of their to
eredentials, and appreheanded that V
Sthey might not, after all, he able to
le deliver the glods they had ao ardent
d ly promised. The situation muost
Shave been somewhat embarrassing,
t but the story is the committee was
, profuse in its apologies and its s, t
. planations.
dThe committee, it is said, lnformed lci
id Mr. Morris that as a coommaonity the
rs people of New Orleans are peacliar, t
d. and it would never do to impart to d
them the devious methods to which ri
at it'was ecessary to resort to restore
o the rightful authority and bring pros- d
of perity to the State.
is The commaittee, however, .could
r offer as emphatLic pledge which wouldt .
fth he uoanwerable, and oontrol the
I Demoeratic party for all futare time. |
on The bill repealing the charter of'
b the lottery would be taken up in the
rsenate, and instead of the usual
re method of referring it to a committoee,
the where it could die a natural death, a I
* motion would be made and adopted '
