BiSjjSsl Slaves' MS IE LOTTERY TAR The President Sends a Message to Congress on the Subject. Attention Called to the Magni I tude of the Evil. lie Urge. Legislation That Will Give tlie Postmaster General Authority to Pro tect the Mails, anil Suggests a Law to Prevent Kxpress Companies Carrying Let teii 'or Lotteries Washington, July St. President Harrison has sent the following message to congress: To the Senate and House of Representa tives: The recent attempt to secure a charter from the state of North Dakota for a lot tery company, the pendingeffort to obtain from the state of Louisiana a renewal of a charter of the Louisiana state lottery, ami the establishment of one or more lottery companies at Mexican towns near our border, have served a good purpose of call ing public attention to an evil of vast pro portions. If the baneful effects of the lotteries were confined to states and gave the companies corporate powers and a license to conduct a business, the citizens of other states, being powerless to apply legal remedies, might clear themselves of responsibility by the use of such moral agencies as were within their reach. Hut the case is not so the people of all the states are debauched and defrauded. Ti e vast sums of money offered to the states for charters are drawn from the pople of the t'nited States, and the gen eral government, through its mail system, is made the effective and profitable, me dium of intercourse between the lottery company and its victims. The use of the mails is quite as essential to the compa nies as the state license. It would be practically impossible for these companies to exist if the public mails were once effectually closed against their advertise ments ami remittances. The line of the mails by these companies is a prostitution of uu agency only intended to serve pur poses of a legitimate trade and decent social intercourse. It is not necessary, I am sure, for me to attempt to portray the robbery of the poor, and the wide-spread corruption of public and private morals which are the necessary incidents of these lottery schemes. The National capital has become a sub headqunrters of the Louisiana Lottery company and its numerous agents and at torneyo are conducting here a business involving probably a larger use of the mails than that of any legitimate enter prise in the District of Columbia. There seems to l)e good reason to believe that t he corrupting touch of these agents has lieen felt by the clerks in the postal serv ice anil by some of the police ollieers of the District. Severe and effective legisla tion should be promptly enacted to enable the postolliie department to purge the mails of all letters, newspaers and circu lars relating to the business. The letter of the postmaster general which I trans nut herewith, points out the inadequacy of the existing statutes, and suggests leg lation that would be effective. It may also be necessary to so regulate the carry ing of letters by the express companies as to prevent the use of these agencies to maintain communication between the lot tery companies and their agents or custo mers in other cities. It does not seem possible that there can be any division of sentiment as to the pro priety of closing the mails against thesu companies, and 1, therefore, vulture to ex press the hope that such proper powers as are necessary to that end will be given to the postotlice department. llKXJ.

The letter of the postmaster general referred to by the president culls atten tion to the inefficiency of the present law, und recommends the passage of the anti-lottery bill recently reported to the hoube.

In May last the defendants and myself met at the Scattertield school house, where it was planned to vh-it the farm of Samuel Hoppes and shave the tail and inane of one of his horses, and also visit the field of Meredith Stanley and break his farm implements. From the school house we went directly on horseback to Hopjies' farm, and caught his mare. Stinson held the horse while Richardson shaved her tail and clipped her mane. From there we went to Stanley's, and I went and got an ax while Richardson and Hoppes broke two cultivators into pieces. At another time the Cappers visited Ethan A. Stanley and shaved the tail and clipped the mane of three of his horses. All these depredations were committed between 11 and 12 o'clock at night."

At the conclusion of the state's evi dence the case was submitted to the court, and the defendants were placed under a heavy bond for their appear ance at the September term of tlie cir cuit court.

J.. u - to the order of business in the senate, suid Tues day afternoon that there was very little if any real doubt that MANOUIiSON. the Fedeial election bill would bo taken up at this session and passed. He slated that the Democrats were exceedingly anxious to have the river mid harbor bill passed before adjourn ment, as the south was largely inter ested in that measure, and that there fore tlie Republicans ought to disisse of the tariff before the river and harbor bill is tiiken up for consideration. He is persuaded tlmt it would be a good policy to place the Federal election bill ahead of the river and harbor bill, as it would have the effect of preventing dilatory tactics on the part of the Democrats. Senator Manderson stilted that while he opposed such a modification of the rules as would prohibit the fullest possi ble debate upon all questions us long as the debate was continued in a business like manner, he was unquestionably in favor of modifying the rules so that the d.'bate in general could lie terminated at the end of a reasonable time, and a day fixed for the debate in detail to close, and a vote be reached upon the amend ments and the main question. He stated that while in the proceed ings of thu caucus it did not appear that it was the determination of the Repub licans to take up the election bill before the end of the session, he had no doubt that it would come up i'i due time, and he added that the modification of the rules would not be made until it became 'apparent that the Democrats intended to offer factions opposition to prevents final vote. He said that while there were objections to almost every kind of an election bill which could lie proposed, when it came to the pith of the general proposition to further exjend Federal suis'i vision over cougresaonal elections, every Republican favored the proposi tion. The opposition, he said, was simply as to the details of the measure. POLITICAL PARTY WAR. Illoo.l Shed at a Political Joint Meeting at Towuley, Ala. Birmingham, Ala., July SI.

A special to The Herald from the city of Guatemala says it is reported there that Dr. Fernando Cruz, the Guatemalan minister to the United States, has been recalled to Guatemala, and that Dr. Lorenzo Montufar, now on a special mission to Spain, has been named to succeed him.

Auother story is that Secretary Blaine has asked the withdrawal of Dr. Cruz from Washington. The cause of this is said to be that the Guatemalan minister had made use of the newspapers to ven tilate diplomatic intercourse with the United States state department, when he hud no business to do so. riot to Assassinate Bnrrllas. Guatemala, July 31. An attempt was made Sunday night to assassinate President Barrilas, of Guatemala, by a native Indian, who was found concea led in Barrilus' bed room, armed witu a matchette and a revolver. The presi dent was with n number of guests in his parlor, when he was rushed upon by the Indian, whose name is Xaching Tubasq. With his long knife, or matchette, the Indian attempted to cut Barrilas to the ground. The president eluded the blow, drew his revolver, kept the man at lsy. and shouted for his aids-do-camp. Three rushed in and seized mid disarmed the Indian, who was inarched off to prison, and placed in cominunicado, or in solitary con finement. 'the Indian confessed that he had lieen employed by the Conservatives to do the deed. He gave the names of Antonio Valenzuela, Dr. Pedro Molino Floris and Jose Diaz Durun, a lawyer, as the principals in the affair, with whom he treated. He said that Durun had sworn to take tlie life of Barrilas, because tlie latter had exiled Duran's brother nnd had ruined him.

Tiie United States is making official inqui ries to ascertain what has become of the telegrapic correspondence of Minister Mizner, resident in Guatemala, for the state department at Washington. It is evident that Mr. Mizner has endeavored to send telegrams from Guatemala to La Liliertad for transmission to Wash ington by cable and that they have been blocked in Guatemala. The telegraph line from Guatemala to La Lihertad hugs the road where the late battles have been fought, and it is supposed by both Minister Dimiez and Confidential Agent Pott that the wires have been cut by the armies, and that Mr. Mizner's dispatches are consequent ly filed away in some office, where they probably will remain, unless ordered hack to Guatemala or sent through the Salvadorian army for transmission via La Liliertad to their destination. Senor Pon says the censorship over telegrams in Salvador does not extend to the official business of any neutral power, and was established to prevent iinateiimla from sending out false re-""-ts in regard to the affairs of Salva dor. ..iiiister Ryan called on Senor Pou to day regarding the blockade of the Miz l:er correspondence, and Senor Pou im mediately cabled to his government ask ing that inquiry be made into the mat ter, anil to ascertain whether the cor respondence was detained in Salvador or Guatemala.
