THE LOTTERY COMPANY SEEKS TO
CRUSH THE N. O. DEMOCRAT.
The Louisiana State Lottery Company
having brought action against Mr. A. C.
Janin, one of the proprietors of the N O.
Democrat, forthe amount of $25,000 dam
ages, on account of an editorial appearing
in that paper on the 15th inust., the Demo
erat responds on Tuesday last in an article
which should be sustained by every hon
est paper in Louisiana, which we ap
plaud, and from which we take the fol

established by an act purchased from a
corrupt Legislature; the subsequent acts
passed in its interest were purchased from
Legislatures equally corrupt. It sustain

power; it corrupted the juidicia.
ry. State and Federal, from police to sn
preme courts; it went into our legisla
ture and by currupt means combined
against the people in the interest of the
bonmholders; it has become a moral pes
tilence in our midst; it has a primary
school for gambling; it has taught ser
vants to steal the money of their employ
ers; it has made swindlers and theives
ofelerks; it has debauched ministers of
the Gospel ; like some vile, pestilential
andinsidions disease, it has eaten into
and permeates our whole social and politi
esIsystem. TheTweed ring in New York
was a bad thing; but that touched and
contaminated only the politics ofthat me
tropolis; itnever invaded the social life
ofthe city and state. The lottery ring in
New Orleans is therefore infinitely worse.
It has corrupted our politics ; it has de
bauched our legislatures; and in every
street of the city and evtry town of the
State it has opened its primary schools to
tempt and teach people to gamble.
There has never been a newspaper in this
city. exceptthe Democrat, that it has.not
purchased and silenced ; we doubt ifmany
men have run for an office in this city on
either side since the organization of this
company who did not stand in awe of its
power, and who were not anxious to con
ciliate its tremendous power. It is this
institution which the Democrat has. at
tacked; and because we have dared to
attack it, because we refused its bribes, in
sidiously offered under guise of businese,
we are to* be robbed and plundered
through the ingenuity of able lawyers,
and, if possible, through courts and ju
ries, of$25,000. Must there not be a so
esia demoralization when a corrupt gamb
lihgmonopoly thus hires the first law
yers of the country and seeks to de.troy
the organ of the people !
We accept the challenge thrown down
to us in this suit. We have refused the
insidious o. ersofthis company; we have
fought it when the majority of the Legis
liture lay helpless in its grip; single-hands
ed and alone; when the Times and Pica
yune were, as they are now, its abject,
willing and obedient tools, we made the
fight against it. What wag our object ?
More money than the Lottery Company
have sued our associate for we could have
had from this company for the asking;
and it is not long since money -even the
sum the advertisiug of the Lottery Com
pany in the Times and Picayune amounts
to-and which the coupany begged us to
accept, was an object to us. But we unn
derstood the pernicious influence of that
hinstutio. in our polities. The DEMO
OIRAT was established, and, in its days of
Sdistress, sustained by thie Democratic
party, and we felt that we had no right
to hold relations or make terms with the
Dlottery Company for onr personal emolu
ment. In the interest of the Democratio
party, therefore, in the interest of the
people wlio established the DEMOCRAT,
and look to it for bonest counsel and hon
eat opinion, we opened this war, in the
interest of the State we have kept it up.
and in that interest, so help us God, we
will keep it up until the lottery monopo
ly is destroyed or the DEMOCRAT is
crushed. If in such a fight as this the
DEMIocRAT or any one of its proprietors
can be robbed, swindled and plundered
through the courts of the State we are
strivin to protect, ofg125,000 or any other
sum, then eis our mnissio endel.
We fail almost cgnustantly to re
oeive the Monday issuea of the
New Orleans Democrat. As we don't
f/el able to be deprived of a sin

ibe justified in reqluesting somebody or

WAsiNOGTON, D. C., May 18. 1878.
In the Senate our- solons have
been engaged during the past week
with going over the calendar, and
passing bills of both public and
private nature. The harmony of
this wing of the Oapitol has been
disturbed not, notbing of impor
tance has occurred to rufle the
feathers of our "old gentlemen"
worthy of chronicling.
In the House the forepart of the
week has been consumed by the
introduction of .private, balls, peti
tions, etc. Orr repredentatives pass
ed the bill to retire silver three and
five cent pieces, and make silver
coin a legal tender to the amount
of twenty dollars. After which
the first gun was fired through an
introduction of the Potter resolu
tion to investigate the Presiden
tial frauds by the Radicals raising
the point that it was not a privi
leged question. After a whole
days filibustering by the Radicals,
Speaker Randall gave the verdict
in favor of our side by deciding it
to be "A question of high privi
;ege"*' This was a knockdowin
blow to the Radicals, who have
resorted to all manner and kind of
delatory seotions to stave off the
nlovestigation, and have thereby
blocked all legislation for the
public good, by their revolution
ary determinedness to prevent an
inquiry into the electoral'-fraud in
iquities, through extreme fear of
utter disruption and anihilation of
their party. The tactics of the
Rad's have been repeated for the
last three days, which resulted
each day in the want of a quorum,
and hence our side have thereby
been forced to adjourn from day
to day until a sufficient number of
Democrats now absent on leave
(and "paired") can return, which
will give us a quorum of a work
ing majority, and then the dose
will be forced down their throats
aolens tolens. Mr. Potter, the in
troducer of the resolution, replied
to Gen, Banks, that it he (Banks)
would assure him.(Potter) that the
Radical aide of the House would
allow a vote on the pending
resolution the House could
then proceed with the puldic busi
ness. This Banks refused to do.
So the dead lock in the tiou e still
r(mains uubroken,.up to the. N it
ing of this.
The mu-ter roll of Democrats
increased yesterday to 142, which is
five short of a quorum, .n the vote
of the Potter-Investigation into
the Presidential Frauds. Radi
cils Hale and Garfield held their
followers in subjection by giving
them to understand that a break
would occur in the Democratic
r nks, and the investigation there
by be -quelchee. They went even
so far in their fit of frenzy and
desperation to assure the ratn and
file of their party that an under
standing to that effect had been
effected with disaffected Deno
crats But as not a word of mur
muring was noticeable on our side,
consideranbe dissatisfaction was
manifested by the Radical minori
ty, at the deception practiced up
on them by their leaders, Hale
and Garfield, and it is probable
that a break will occur among cer
tain Radicals, who" dislike very
much the position they are pluced
in of defending the great -fraud,
and acknowledge that they ,uave
seen sufficient evidences of the
truth of the charges contained in
the Potter Resolutions of inquiry
to ju-ti!y an investigation, But
these unfortunates have been so
lied to and deceived by their lead
ers that they have been made
blind to the appeals of the Demo
cmrats for no exposure of the elce=
toral frauds. Now that tlhey havre
begun to open their eyes, it is .x
pectcd that a sufficient nunbr
will form a quorum and allow the
Democrarts to plss the Poater Res
Garfield's comnplaint during the
debate on the Potter resolutioi of
inquiry into ,he Piesidential fraad
was, that the scope of the investi
gation was not large enough and
our democratic friends propose to
include him in the investigation,
not only as to his association
and connection with the fiauds but
also as to the two cases of protsi
tu!ion and per jury comm tted by
him, the great Radical Saint, irn
relation to the twenty shabes of
Credit Mobillier stock, and the
$5000 DeGollier bribe which he
conlessed to have received in street
paving contracts given out by
'Boss' Shepherd here in our city.

frioends will put before himn the
mirror ol h's own actions, which

or careful commander on the river, is

trade, one of the finest as well as most
complete steamboats ever turned out
from a western builder's hands. Such a'
boat, officered by such accomplished gen
tlemen as now preside in the several de
partments on the Allen; cannot fail to
prove a most pronounced as . ell as ac
ceptable success. We clip the following
from the Cincinnati Commercial:

FROM ALTAR TO GRAVE.
HORRIBLE FATE OF A YOUNG WIFE.
LSt. Louis Evening Pbst.J
BROOKLYx, N. Y., May 14.--Front 94
South Fourth street, Williamsburg, three
days ago, Miss Wenzio went forth a
bride and to-day or to-morrow her body
will be borne thence to the grave. The
young lady was married to Mr. H. J.
Cole, a well-to-do tobacco merchant of
Greenpoint, who after the wedding con
ducted his bride to their now home, 122
Cuyler street. On Saturday Mrs. Cole
attempted to.clean the stove in one of
the rooms with liquid stove polish by
pouring it on the ' top of the stove, in
which fire' burned at the time. Mr. Cole
was absent at the time and the only oc
cupant of the room was a brother of the
bride's, who was lying asleep on the sofa.
Some of the liquid must have reached the
fire through the cracks in the iron of the
stove, for the stuff blazed up fiercely.
Mrs. Cole sprang back with a cry. but
was not quick enough to avoid the flames,
which completely etcircled'her garments
Being of light material, they instantly
caught tire. Aftervainly trying to smo
ther the flames with her hands, she went
toward the sofa, on which her brotlher
was lying and cried out. "Brother,
brother, for God's sake helpl me, I am
burningl" The brother excitedly jumnp
ed up, b't strikmng his foot against the
threshold of the dooorway, fell headlong
to the floor fainting.
Mrs. Cole then threw herself on the
floor and rolled herself upon the carpet.
Her nephew soon after came, but all
night the poor woman lay tossing tnd:
moaning in the most intense agony. Yes
terday morning, as the light struggled
through the shutters of her wintdow,
death relieved her of her pain.

A BTRANGE CATTLE EPIDEMIC.
The dairymen north of the city 'are se
riously arlarmed concerning an epidemic
that'has broken ont. among their cattle.
From eating dew-covered white clover
a oerlin highly expansilve gas is formed
in she bovine stomach which petletrates
to all parts of the animals' bodies, caus
ing death in a few hours. There is only
one known remhedy and that is to thrust a
knife in the sides of the afflicted eattle
just behind the shoulder blade. This
affords an outlet for the gas and brings
instant relief. Cattle suffering
from this gaseous complaint look as
though they might have been fed on
compressed yeast. The dairymen have
associated themselves together for mu
tual protection, and by adopting this
method manage to prevent a very ex
tensive mortality, though probably a
hundred cows have diediTfrom the di
sease thus far. The gentle herdsmen
now go around 't ith long, keen butcher
knives, which they slip into the sides
of their cows when occasion requires.
The cornfield subdivisions north of the
city have been converted into immense
clover fields, and it is here the grazing
kine are encountering the death-dealing
white variety. Dairymen call the di
sease "clovering." It has not yet at
tacked the pumps, and the milk mer
charts do not feel entirely disheartened.

At the foot of Lookout Mountain, near

hard battle during the war.
On that saue ground, nearly forty
years ago a victory was gained more
glorious than any gained by our armies.
A remedy was there discovered for liver
diseases that excited the wonder of
scientific men and physicians. Purely
vegetable, it excelled in curative prop
erties the mineral drugs, such as calo

This Sarsaparilla is a combination of
drake,Yellow Dock-with the lodides
of Potassium and Iron, and is the
most efficacious medicine yet known
for the diseases it is intended to cure.
Its ingredients are so skilfully
combined that the full alterative
effect of each is assured, and while
it is so mild as to be harmless even
to children, it is still so effectual as
to purge out from the system those
impurities and corruptions which
develop into loathsome disease.
The reputation it enjoys is derived
from its cures, and the confidence
which prominent physicians all over
the country repose in it proves their
experience of its usefulness.
Certificates attesting its virtues
have accumulated, and are con
stantly being received, and as many
of these cases are publicly known
they furnish convincing evidence o.
the superiority of this Sarsaparilla
over every other alterative medicine.
So generally is its superiority to any
other medicine known that we need
do no more than to assure the public
that the best qualities it has ever
possessed are strictly maintained.
