The Lottery's Donation. with de
We think, as does the Times-Demo- ber of ti
crat, of New Orleans, that Gov. Nich- peetfill
oils acted unwisely in refusing to re- holders
ceive the check of 8100,000, of the dance
La. State Lottery Co., for the benefit gainat
of repairing and strengthening the le- on the
vees in the threatened overflow dis- Northe
trict, where the interests of so many lots be
thousands of helpless mortals are at railroa
stake. We quote from our New Or- raia
leans contemporary and agree with it Paul,.]
in every particular: & Wei
Gov. Nicholls' refusal of the proffered Owen,
donation of $100,000 is, on the other hand, Mrs. E
untimely and ill-advised in the extreme. ton, J
The money is sorely needed; and it should Jackc
have been taken, and applied toward the Orsbou
protection of property in the State from Heolei
inundation and destruction. Cokel
His Excellency could have accepted it son,J.
under the exigent circumstances without A. W
committing himself in the least to indor- Damni
sing the lottery principle, or to favoring Willi
the extension of the charter of the Louisi- S. H.
ana State Lottery Company. Hie could Iessei
have easily guarded himself against any i-. H.
possible misconstruction by stating, in so ar., J.
many, that he accepted the proffered gift . A.
to the people of the State in the dread of Giunil
an impending calamity, to avert which Ilbar
there was no available money in the State R. al
Treasury: but that his acceptance must Ratcl
imply neither indorsement of a lottery wood
nor any claim to future favor on the part Raus
of the Louisiana Lottery Company. Husio
Writing in the same strain and on Pette
the same subject, M. A. Dauphin, osco
President of the Lottery Company, gers,
writes to Gov. Nicholls as follows :
Dear Sir--Yor letter of this date is re- man
ceived, wherein you refuse and return the Gola
check for $100,000, which the Louisiana Pice
State Lottery Company had handed to J. J
you, the Chief Executive of the people of Girai
Louisiana, to be immediately applied to nage
the averting of the disastrous overflows Mans
with which they are threatened. H. L
While I am not disposed to question p. A
your Excellency's free agency in acting san,
as you do, I cannot refrain irom sayings Jose
that the Louisiana State Lottery Com- less,
lauy is as frmly grounded in the Consti- Rya
teton and the laws of Louisiana as any A. A
institution within its borders. It is, R. c
therefore, as legitimately entitled to ex- ster,
press its sympathy with the people of g.L
Louislana, and to contribute to their re- (
lief as the Cotton Exchan e, the Board .
of 'trade, or, be it respectfully said, the Boll
Governor of Louisiana himself.
Permit me to say that your Excellency's Rob
refusal to accept the contribution ten- Rol
dered by this company is based on an en- Ic(
tirely unwarranted assumption of inten- D.
thins which neither you nor any one else tap
have aright to attribute to it.
The company's tender of aid to the peo
ple of the State was inspired by a recog- an(
nition of actual and pressing emergencies.
Your Excellency's fear that, if this offer
be accepted by 'ou it will impose some Rai
lfuture and binding obligation on the pub
sic implies the very uncomplimentary in- d
ference that the people of Louisiana are
to be swayed in their decision of ques
tions of "vital importance to their inter
eats" by small benefactions which have tai
.no bearing on such questions. ha
On this point I respectfully beg to dis- Ca
sent from your Excellency's opinion.
Your Excellency may be assured that
this company will not intermit its exer- all
tions to aid the people of the threatened ye
districts in their efforts to avert the catas- fa
trophe with which they are not menaced. sa

g -A bit of sharp practice was played in
pjit the recent tax election in Lake Charles,
cen- upon the proposition to vote a tax to aid
nal in securing electric lights and water
works for the city. Under the law gov
her erning suoh elections, none but property
h to tolders are entitled to vote, and to carry
the measure a majority of voters must fa
vor it both in point of numbers and in as
nd- sessed of propefty they represent. In or
der to secure a large number of voters a
brg citizen bought one third of an acre of 'Or

by interest in his purchase, makiun each
