Washi sr.ton, D. C., Sept. 17.?Th
aaeoi the L'nitod States against Job
i. Rapier and the two cases of the Unit
cd .States vs. George W. Dupre will com
uj> for ariromcnt at the October term c
the United States Supremo Court. Eac
of tlie*o cases is an application for th
discharge by writ of habeas corpus fror
arrest for an alleged violation ot th
anti-lottery, and the other indlctmen
was for the mailing of a letter concern
i?ntiw? Inttcrv. The judgments of th
lower
court wad -against tho defendant
and the coses were appealed to th
Supreme Court.
Attorney Genoral Miller lias pro
pared the brief, which he will submit
jn behalf of the government when tlx
coseg are heard, and he has given it ou
for publication. He begins his brie
by saying that nearly fifteen years agi
tile exact question mooted in thesi
cased, arising in the samo way, wai
/ally considered and unanimously de
cidea by the Supremo Court ?inc<
that time the principle of that decisioi
has been accepted by the peoplo, b?
Congress, by the executive oflicers o'
the government and by tho courts at
the settled law of the land.
Regarding the assumption of counse
for defense that the right to operator
lotterr is one of the fundamental right:
of a mail, like the right to exercise \
? nU..olrt|iin rtr n trn/ln n
MOieMU'ii, ?|?ii/oivi?M, v. ? ?-?? a
laundrvman. the Attorney Genera
tavf ii it can be demonstrated that t(
pr'cv upon one's fellow men by meani
of ii lottery is a fundamental humni
right the Decalogue and the Sefrnon 01
tiie Mount, not to mention the Declara
linn of Independence, ought to be re
written at once.
"In brief," savs the attorney genoral
"I maintain without successful contra
diction tjiat whatever acts and enter
prises Congress has powor to inaki
criminal in the District of Cdlurabin o:
the territories it may refuse directly o:
indirectly to aid, encourage or abet 11
any Sinto, without violating any obllga
tiuti cither to citizen or State. _ An;
State may inako Ihe practices of thia lot
terv company, or the possession of it!
tickets within its borders witl
inicnt to sell a crime. Thi
l'nlteil States government, Uki
an individual or a private cor
poratiun, or an ordinary muoicipa
corporation, is subject to the great ruli
which pervades all well ordered society
that no one shall so use his own prop
city, franchise or powers as that in s<
iloine he shall inflict a needless injur
upon the property or personal rights o
individuals or upon the well being o
wcioty.
A STRONG POIXT.
The Attorney General then nrguos t<
mow congress ftns the undoubted rigii
to legislate for tho common good nn<
lays: "Suppose that,as now is n pro
lability, a postal telegraph should to
established, is it true the United .State.1
Government would be under obligatioi
to transmit over its telegraph lines inos
buges in reference to business or prac
tices not indictable at common law, o
not known to the law books as vialau
if." Could it not refuse to transmi
telegrams bodily relating to gamblinj
transactions, trading upon margins ii
wheat or stocks, or negotiating the pur
chaie nnd snle of lottery tickets ? Or it
rmnl to any other business which ii
the exercise of a sound discretion Con
press might declare to be contra bow
mora.
"1 submit that no judicial deciaioi
has been cited, and it is my belief tha
none can be found, denying to Congres
the t)0\Vl>r U-ith rn/oronnn m !??*
for which wo are contending."
Tho real issue, argues tho Attorne;
(jencrol, is whether the United State
Government is compelled to becomt
the agent of this lottery company. Tin
tint amendment to the constitution n<
more requires Congress to provido fo:
the carrying of the literature of tho lot
tery company in the mails than it re
quires Congress to provido by law fo
printing such literature. Seriously, i
it not too plain for argument that un
dtr this first amendment to theconsti
tution tho act does its whole duty b;
the press when it fails to put any re
itriction whrtover upon the printinj
} the publication or circula
t'.on thereof by those interested
therein, through such private agonciei

seem to mo that they are casos in which, Ui
if the law wore found to bo invalid in

ites?tho Republican party is seriily
divided upon tho tree coinage of

'Doubtless also the Democratic party
squally as divided. There is an liondifference
of opinion concerning

which it occupied prior to its
althy domonetiiation in 1873; but

,io with honesty, and as speedily as
isting circumstances will permit. Wo
not intend that this subject shall go
debated, neither do we intend that

which is the right of both

may differ among ourselves as to the

'Tho first Congress Inid a tariff com- t

r cent This tariff was designed, for
'enue with incidental protection.
rnr.r. trade chestnuts.
'The effoct of protection is conceded f
its friends to 'divert industry into j
innels into which it would not naturY
flow.' Evon the slight protoctjon '
this tarifT had such an effect, and j
ise unnnturallystimulated industries .
ran very soon to clamor for further .
itection. By tho timo of Jefferson's
ninistration rates had already risen ,
will be shown from tho following ex- j
ct from McKinlcy's speech at Nlles: ,
1804 in the midst of JeOerson's adnistration
the avcrago rate was 23.40, ,
17$ per cent, as Mr. Campbell stated. .
e curious thing about this statement
hut in relation to myself. I have i
ror beforo mentioned tho tariff of t
rerson. The major should quote i
ire accurately. Tariff rates c
iw slightly higher until tho .
r nf 1812. when thov took an UDWard ,
irt owing to the necosstty for war rev- ]
no. Tho first decidedly protectlvo .
iff was passed in 1810, and was not {
lollv Buporceded until 1842, although .
leniied l>y tho Clay tariff in 1824, the .
riff of abomination in 1828, and the c
npromiso tariff in 1833. Tiion came ?
j Whig tariff of 1842, which was ab- 8
rated by tho low tarifl, or Walker ,
iffof 1840. Tho iiighest point reach- t
in all these years of protection was j
s than 30 per centupon total imports. r
o theory of these tariffs was not that
oternal protection. The language of \
nry Clay will best describe it In j
10 ho said: "No one, Mr. President, r
tho commencement of tho protectlvo t
1 1 i :? 1
licy evur buujiuouu wiui> it nas iu uu
