tery company ; tho pemllii effoit toobtnfu
from thu Statu of Lotil-luml u rcneuul ot
tho churtcr nt the Louisiana statu Lottery,
und the establishment of ouu or moro lot
tery companies at Mexican low us near our

calling attention lo un evil of vust propor

teries w ere eonlliicd to tho Mules that glvo
tho companies corpornto powers anil n,
Ihcnso to conduct tho business, tho cltizenl
of other States, bolusr powerless to apply
legal regulations, might clear themselves
t responsibility by tlio use, of such moral
agencies ns w orn within their rcacli. Hut tlift
easo Is not so. Tho people ot all thu .States
lira debauched i.-d defrauded. Tho vnt
sums of money. nffeicil to thu Stales fot

United 8tatcs,and the Uenoral (lovuriiti'ent,
through Its mall sysioui, Is mulo tlio
effcctlvo und prolltable medium ot
Intercoiir.o between tlio lotteiy company
nnd Its victims. The tiso ot tho mulls is
nlllto as es-entlal to tho eomp.iiilus us tho
Ptnto license. It would bo practically Im
possible for tllesu companies to exist If tho
public mulls weio onea effectively closet
against lliolr advertisements mid remit
tances. Tlio uso of the mails by thesoeom
panics Is a prostitution of all agency only
Intended to serve tho purposes of n lelti
loiito trade and decent social Intercourse.
It is not necessary, I am sure, for mo to
attempt to portray tho robbery of tlio poor
and the w idlh of eor.-tiptloti ot public and
livnto morals which aro mere ncces iry
incidents of these lottery companies. The
Niitlonal capital lias become n suli.lieail
fjuarters of the Loulsanu Lottery Uouipany,
and Its ntimeioiis agenls and attorneys ulo
conducting hero a business requiring prob
ably u larger usu of tho malls thuti that of
any legitimate business enterprise In tho
District of Columbia. There seems to bo
good lenson to believe that tho corrupting
touch of the-e agents Iris been felt by tho
clerks In tho postal seivleeand by some of
tho police ollleers of thy Dlstl let of Colum
bia. Severe and effcctlvo legMutlou shoubl
be promptly euueted tn enablo tho I'o.t
olllco Department to purge the mails of all
the letters, neivsp.ipers and circulars iel.it
Ing to this business.
Tho letter of the Posttn-i.ter-Cenerat
which I transmit heiewith, points out Iho
Inadequacy of the existing sl.iltiles, and
suggests legislation that would be elfeetivo.
It may also bo necessary to so regulate tho
carrying of letteis In the espiess com
panies us to pievcnt the use of those agen
cies to maintain communication between
tho lottery e.iiup.inles und their agents or
ciistoinels in other Miite-i,
It does not seem po.-Ible tli.it there can bo
any division of sentiment us to the pro
priety of closing tin in. ills ng.ilnst tliesi

piess the hope til It such proper powers us
