monwealths monw alths AttorneyMackey Attorncyt fackoy this morn

on o the theSt St St Asaph poolroom by b the
Alexandria exmdrla police olice
Continuing Contlnu ng Mr MrMacKeydeclared Mackey declared that
c the thcraidmade raid made without withouteyen even consulting
the he mayor of Alexan Alexandria dria was waS actually

names pf f nineteen of them To my
t mind there th re is only > nly one way in which
he could obtain such bpormationand information and
that is by being beingone one of the crowd
The Th object of the the raid r Id is apparent
They The 1Iopellrst hope first lot f r an ana anacquittal acquittal < quittl In in
trial tri l before for Attorney Brent to tobo bo
as a 1 prelude to the moving of
gambling gnm Ung resort to Alexandria Sec
ond ondthey they hcpe for either an
or oraconvicUonwh a conviction which ch the they y will use se
the thepur purpose os of pleading a afonner former ac
t quittal or or conviction conic tion in any an
trials w which hich may ma arise in the county count
The Thet third ird and andmost most probable object
the St Asaph AS pl1 faction actloh in arranging
raid on themselves thensel es is to have a convic co nlc
tion and take t the tl1ecase case to the court
appeals appealsup upon na a pretended test case
which Which however wjlnot will not embody embodan
of the th practices really existing at St
Asaph For example they will
to have the record on whic which h they go
+ the court of appeals show that
business st St S1 Asaph is done by
bona fide telegraph company whi lI
acts aC fs as a common commoncarrir carrier
Itnows that this is not so
Second they the will attempt to
the records show that they the only onl trans
mit by b wire mere offers offersto to bet an
that ho n > actual betting bettln Is done This is i
also false They will also try tn to make
the records shew that betting at St St
Asaph is done on the lands of a gen ¬
4 tlemens tlemc llsdrhing driving par park k which is absurd
Another plea pea which w hich will be brought br U ht
up is that hat no nobe bets are accepted in n Vir ¬
ginia and also that the Old Dominion D > mlnloIJ
Telegraph Company merely mrel acts as an
agent to transmit money mone out of the
State This as well as the claim that
they the transmit bets to an athletic asso ¬
elatIon clat on which in turn transmits them
to ether cth r points as claimed In their bill
of exceptions CJCc exeenons t1ons is absolutely untrue

4 next and represent its Interests In
Washington The compensation offered
amounted moult d it Is understood to 530000 30000 or
more a year for a aperfO period l lof of eight years
The The firm which made this offer has h
large interests before the Government G
and desired that the retiring Postmaster
General look after them here It was
principally on account of this that Mr
Wynne declined the offer He did not
fee feel l that he hecoud could with full justice to
himself retire from the Government
service and then represent a n firm whose
interests would require him as its pres ¬
ident 1dentto to bring into play the influence his
high gh character and signal signalabllity ability ave nave
won w n for Mm him with officials 1s in every ev r
branch of the Government
Wfll W nSucceed Succeed Evans
Moreover it is practically settled that
3Ir W Wynne Vvy nne will take th the place of R
Clay Evans Eais Eaisas as consul general at London
after March 1 4 L The President bas nat
formally formalhtenaere tendered this post to the Post ¬
master General Gene m but it Is believed that
he h will do so at an early date d3xe It has
been known for some time tini that a a hand ¬
