This report is al s ig circulated
privately in certain qu for the
evident purpose of injurlg the anti
lottery cause by creating lhe impres
sion that the leadert of the movement
are actuated only by a desire for ofBfice.
Eighteen months-ago I: publicly an
nounced that in this fight against that
monstrous iniquity, the Louisiana
State Lottery, I would permit no
question of personal ambition or desire
for office, however laudable in itself, to
cripple my usefulness in' this titanic
struggle for the honor of my State.
Right here and now I reiterate this
statement and further declare that- I
am not a candidate for, the Senate, nor
will I, under any circumstances be
come a candidate for any office during
the present campaign.
It is evident that. the statement
above alluded to was manufactured
by the lottery for the, purpose of de
luding certain parties and side-track

led astray by such tricks, but rally to

ties have been preserved.
We have not gone all of the way
back to his first appearance in public
life to make this investigation, but
have commenced with hisiterm of sere
vice as 'lieutenant-governor in 1880.
While filling that office it~" his 'du
ty to preside over the State Senate,
and as such presiding officer it was
right to give the casting gr. deciding
vote in case of a tie upon any ques
tion in that body. That vote he was
called upon to cast at least once during

On the 8th day of April, 1880, the
Senate of Louisiana was in session with

D. McEnery, in the chair presiding.

act, was Under consideratiog, Senator
Marston, of Red River, always a steady
and consistent enemy of the": lottery,

The effect of this would have .ee

this effort to charter opposition - cm
panies killed. What did Governor
Samuel Douglass McEnery do? He
sent his famous so-called anti-lottery
message to the Legislature denouncing
lotteries and advising against them all.
And a majority of the Legislature act
ed upon hs aidvice the negro mem
bers all votingagain upon theside es
poused by the champion of white su
premacy, pure and undefiled.
But this is not all of the record. In
1891 the Louisiana Lottery was again
vitally interested in a matter then be
fore the public; it was the celebrated
lottery case in the Supreme Court. In
the meantime Governor Samuel Doug
lass McEnery had become Associate
Justice. What he did in that case is
too fresh in the mind of the public to
need repetition here. Suffice it to say
that he decided again in favor of the
lottery, and again we find this cham
pion of white supremacy on the side of
the negro Pinchback, and this expo
nent of pure Democracy casting his
vote for the Republican Herwig.
Thus we tee that, since 1880, the
man brought out as the lottery can
didate for governor has occupied a
place in all three of the departments
of the government-the legislative,
the executive and the judicial. We
further find that the lottery matter
lias come before him in all these ca
pacities fora decision. And we final
ly find that in each and every instance
he has decided in favor of the lottery.
Therefore we say that in choosing him
for its candidate the lottery has pre
served the unities. And we further
say that to speak of him as an anti
lottery man is to speak it in Pickwick
ian sense, to say the least of it.

PROF. READ GIVES A DESORIP
TION OF AUSTIN.
AusTvn, TEx., Nov. 12, 1891
Editor CIOu ox--When I left St
Landry I promised to write you occa.
sionally, and I would have done so ii
I had had time. One has to "hustle'
so much to make a living in this bus;
world that he has hardly time to even
think of his friends. I will endeavoi
to give you a short description of thiu
place, as this is the best subject I car
call to mind now.
Austin is beautifully located in a
dale, which is broken, but made loy
lier by smaller hills. On the north,
south and west, particularly on the
west, the hills rise quite lofty. They
are covered with a shruby growth, and
present a beautiful and somewhat sub
lime view as they rise. above one an
other in the distance. On the east the
acclivity is more gradual.
,~he Colorado river uins southeast
erly through the city dividing it into
North and South Austin, North Austin
being much' the larger .nd the busi
nes~atr. 1The Colo l do4t this place
is ulte a stream, but not' navigable
on account of shoals.
Some of the principal public edifices
are the capitol, the State University,
the Insane Asylum. There are many
others well worth our attention, but
which our limited space will not per

The capitol is built on a onsiderabli
hill about the middle of Congress Ave
nele, North Austin. This edifice i
similar in structure tQ the capitol a
Washington, and second in granden:
in the United States. The distane
around it is said to be upward of sip
hundred yards. From its dome oni
can see the entire city and thei coun
try fqr miles, especially on the east.
The .two houses occupy the larger por
tion of the second and third story, thi
enate being in the =east end of. th
building, the HoVse in the west. The
different departments of State occupy
the; ower story.
