SWEEPSTAKES NOT ALLOWED That ft Gambling, But if the Club Puts Up the Stake it Is All Right. New York, Oe-t. 24. vIf the police could have transported the horses that ran at Morris l'ark race track this afternoon to Essex Market court nothing would have been needed to hold a second edition of the races. There were judges, book makers, speculators and clerks of the court there, but all wore an air of deep gloom, for they had been arrested at the conclusion of the seventh race by Acting Inspector McCullough and central office detectives on the charge of violating the gambling laws. Lawyers Bejamin Steinhart and Julius Lehman went to the Essex Market court this morning, accompanied by George T. Henly of Brooklyn, and on behalf of the people of the state of New York swore out warrants for the arrest of Samuel B. Lawrence, John Doe, Richard Doe and others on four different charges of vio lating the gambling laws. The affidavit by Henly as against Sam uel B. Lawrence in charge of the West chester Racing association and others, al leges that they participated in a scheme l>y which the owners of the horses, 3 year-old foals of 1892, get a chance In the distribution of a stake which Is made up of $100 subscribed by each owner if his horse was entered on or before Au gust 15, 1895, and subscriptions of $15 from each owner who did not enter his horse until October 5, 1895, the combinations to be formed Into one pool, and thu. West chester Racing association would add a sum sufficient to make the gross sum of said pool or stake amount to $3500, and said pool or stake wo'uld be distributed or paid to the owner of the horse that should win the said race after deducting $500, which should go to the owner of the second and $300 which should go to the owner of the third horse; that the different persons should have knowledge of the entries until the day they closed and weights to be carried by the horses, which was a scheme to equalise their chances of winning, were not to be known to the owners of the horses until three days prior to the running of said races, and that every owner will abide by cer tain rules, known as the rules of racing. The complaint further alleged that Bam uel B. Lawrence, as the Westchester Racing association, received $100 from one John Rogers as the entrance fee for a horse called I.ucanla, running In the Withers stakes, and he violated sections 344 and 353 of the penal code relating to gambling. I 1JC .Ijjuii.uv V..V, wv.. . — Richard Doe, John Doe, etc., was that they aided and abetted Lawrence In the violation of the law. The warrants that were then Issued by Magistrate Crane were (riven to Acting Inspector McCul lough to execute, and with that intent he went to the track, accompanied by the detectives. That he did not arrest Law rence Is due to the fact that the latter could not be found there. Shortly before 5 o’clock Magistrate Crane was notified that the arrests had been made and that the prisoners were in custody. An hour afterward the fol lowing were arraigned In court: Judges Robert W. Simms of New Orleans and Clarence McDowell of this city, clerk of the course (alleged by the complainant, Henly, who said he was pointed out to him as such), Christopher J. Fitzgerald of Brooklyn; Alleged Bookmakers Percl val Nagle, Sigmund Ashtnann, Henry Stokes, Leando Jones, Alexander McIn tyre. William H. Davis, Henry Harris, George Kunzman, Ralph Art. John Na gle, George Marks and Joseph Sturgis. Mr. Lawrence, it is thought, wdll sur render to the court tomorrow morning. A number of books alleged to have been used by the defendants were seized, but they were for the most part blank. Mag istrate Crane fixed ball in each case In the sum of $1000 and set the examination of the defendants for next Tuesday. Ball was furnished and all the prisoners were released. Lawyers Stelnhart and Leh man state that the violation of the law' consists of the running of sweepstakes; that is to say. races in which certain amounts are put up by horse owners in the nature of a wager, whereas if the racing association had offered a prize by themselves it would have been consti tutional.

It is a thing unto itself, without precedent, likeness or symbol, a gathering amalgamation of all the charms and arts of oratory, tragedy, comedy, mustc and classic sense, wreathed Into enchanting phrase and woven about popular attention with mag ic art. To call it a lecture is to belittle and befuddle and bemean it. It is a for ensic 'Arabian Nights’ entertainment, a rhetorical ‘Aladln's Dream,' an oracular marshalling of a new race of thought, a ‘Monte Crlstoan' collaboration of rich ideas.” A Houston Post letter says: "They will invade yankeeland and treat that phlegmatic race to an exhibition of rip roaring, hilarious, forensic gymnastics that will be a revelation and a delight— a spectacular of southern character and Miltonic rhetoric.” The Nashville Banner says: "A na tional anthem, an American epic, with all the essential beauties of a perfect pas toral, It evades definition, it is so varied, so ninny-toned, so many-colored.” It is the very refinement of IntelllectuaJ amusement, and the remarkable career of the famous brothers gives it an addi tional Interest that draws crowded houses wherever they go. auoa tor ueramauon ot Character.

New Orleans, Oct. 24—The democratic executive committee of Louisiana met here today with a full attendance, and all the prominent democratic leaders from all over the state In attendance. Those friendly to Governor Foster’s re nomination held a caucus last night, as did those opposed to him, but the deliber ations of both factions were secret. It was pretty obvious that the governor’s friends had things their own way. After the roll call and preliminary work of organization the committee proceeded to business. K. Howard McCaleb read a resolution calling for the holding of a democratic primary election on a day and place to be agreed upon. The list as proposed was seconded by Mayor Fitzpatrick. It was proposed to accept the last United States census as a basis of the population, one representative for every 2000 and fraction over 500. Mr. Boatner moved an amendment, making the basis of voting the vote cast at the election of March, 1892, on the white democratic vote cast, and that the result be faithfully abided in by all and the successful candidate receive the en tire'support of the party. A spirited de bate followed, but Mr. McCaleb’s resolu tion prevailed by a large majority. This is a preliminary victory for Governor Foster. The following telegram was received and read by Mr. Boatner: “Monroe, La., Oct. 24. “To Hon. C. J. Boatner, New Orleans. La.: "To say that I will accept the nomina tion is equivalent to saying that I am a candidate for the same. I am not, and will not go before the convention ns the candidate of any one faction of the dem ocratic party. S. D.
