*>?iii? and jailgiiii-nt?.
The suit of the city of Richmond
afalnst T. Morella, which ha? come to
be known as th* "Slot Machine Case,''
was argued before Judge Witt >n the
Hustings Court yesterday afternoon on
a motion to quash. No decision was
rendered, but th? matter was taken un
Hon. D. C. Richardson. Commonwealth's
Attorney, appeared for the city, and tho
defendant was represented by Messrs.
C. V. Meredith and H. M. Smith, Jr.
It will be remembered that ?dorella was
arrested some time ago charged with
conducting a gambling device, known a?
a slot machine. The prisoner dealt ex
tensively in the?? machines, selling some
and leasing others, and the fascination
proved irresistible to very many, with
rather disappointing results, so that com
plaint? were numerous, and Chief How
ard started out to lnveatlgat? The case
was ?rgued at great length Id tho Police
Court, when the same counsel appeared.
A tin? was imposed and an appeal taken.
THE POINTS AT ISSUE,
Mr. Richardson holds that the ma
chines come under the lottery law, and
that the Constitution of the State of Vir
ginia prohibits the Legislature licensing
them. He cited cases which had bo? n
decided in the Supreme courta of Georgia
and Alabama, similar in every respect to
tho Morclla case, In which the slot ma
chine had been decided to be nothing
more than a lottery Bcheme. He quoted
the definitions of a lottery made by
Hougaton and of Bishop, two of the most
eminent authorities, In which they ?t?te
that a lottery Is any scheme by which a
person may be Induced to risk a sum of
money ha tho expectation of securing a
larger sum in return. Tho word "lottery,"
Mr. Richardson said, had come to be
Identified with the Louisiana and kindred
schemes, but the authorities were unani
mous in placing the broader construction
upon tho word.
THE DEFENDANT'S CONTENTION.
Messrs. Meredith and Smith both took
the ground that the Blot machine was a
gambling device, but It could not rightly
bo classed among the lotteries. As a
gambling device ft had been licensed by
the Legislature, as a means ?>f creating
Mr. Richardson controverted this point,
contending that the Legislature merely
Intended' to license automatic machines
for the sale of merchandise.
?Aha!.ver the decision may be In this
court, it Is more than probable that the
matter will not end here, and the Supreme
Court will be asked to render a final
The city authorities have all along de
clared that the "slot machine most go,"

Mr. Guy IV? ??-?it? the Testimonial of
the Bar In the Chancery Court.
Mr. Jackson Guy yesterday presented
to tho Chancery Court tho resolution?
adopted by tho bencJi and bar of Rich
mond on the death of Mr. James Pea
sants, and In bo doing paid a fitting tri
bute to the memory of that distinguished
member of the bar. Mr. Guy said:
Mr. James Pleasants, a member of the
bar of this court, died the TGth of July
last. He had spent hla life In the prac
tice of the law In this city, and achieved
success. Whether as citizen, soldier, or
man, be responded with fidelity to every
duty, and his accomplishments and vir
tues made hla life an ornament to so
ciety and tho profession. Though his dig
nified presence was accorded respect and
esteem by all, there was no lawyer here
more modest or gentle or courtecus;
there was none more conscientious or
honest. Commencing life with a liberal
education, he Increased the cultivation of
his mind by reading, observation, travel,
and Intercourse with men, and while he
n??ver made a display of learning, the
stores of his Information on all subject?
were a source of unfailing pleasure and
delight to his companion? and friend?.
His literary taste waa classical and ex
act, and no sentence proceed??d from his
tongue or pen that was not correct or
finished In style. There was a charm in
.'ils conversation, and through him there
came to a younger generation many r.?
minlioences of former events and men
that excited the liveliest interest and
made the deepeet Impression; and with a
fund of ready anecdote and a quaint
dry" humor, he was the life of an eve
ning with hi? friend?. Owning a beauti
ful home In the city, he dl?p<>nscd a
? dierou? and graceful hospitality, and
from his mean? he ever gave liberally to
tho?e In want, and numbers of BaefStt
B*ers I he recipient? of hi? unostentatious
kindness and charity. In his professional
career, his taste? and uncomlmtlv* dls
posltlon led him to pursue the quieter
walks opened to those who follow prac
tice In th? Chancen.' courts, and In that
Jepartment he excelled. Well grounded
In the science of the law, few practition
er? wer* better posted aa to the decision?
tf our Court of Appeal?, and few were as
idead In the draft of paper?. As a skilled
'.uiiy pleader, he perhaps had no sup?
i'jor at our bar.
Mr. PI? aeants's ttrm at th* bar began
before the foundation of thla court; he
continued to praotlCe in It till a little
more titan a year before his deeth, when
attacked by the disease which resultad

pains in the groins. I could not sleep, was tired all the time, had no ambition.
Life was a burden to me. The p*iins I suffered at times of menstruation were
rOraething dreadful. I thought there was no cure for it. I saw your adver! ?si?
