The Scheme Offering n Koilnk to the Per

Washington. March .'11 Acting Assistant
Attorney-General liarrett of tho Post Olllco
Department has decided that a schemo offer
ing an $8 kodak to tho person starting n chain,
which runs to completion. Is a violation of tho
lottery law when operated In the following
manner1 Tho startor of tho chain sends ten
cards to ten persons, for which ho p.iv s tho
oporator ten cents. Each recipient of n card is
requested to lu turn send tho operator ten
cents, for which ho receives ten cards Thcso
cards nro to bo sent to ton other jiersons. who
aro In turn to send thorn in with ton cents for
ten other cards. If the ten cards sent out by
each of tho ton porsons addressed by the
staiiarof the scheme nro sent In to tlio pro
moter, nn $8 kodak Is to lo sent to tho starter.
The award of this kodak is held to bo de
pendent upon chance, and. besides, theschomo
is of a fraudulont character. This is a recon
sideration of a former opinion of the depart
ment. Numerous chuln lettor schemos of similar
character have boon held to come within the
prohibition of the Lottery law, whllo others,
differing in detail, havo been held to to admis
sible so far as tho Lottery statute Is concerned,
although oven some of theso may terminate
in schemes to defraud,
