The Louisiana Lottery
Someof the papers of this state are
discussing the matter of whetber the
ouisaa State LotItery will die a matu
rl death by the expiration of Is cbar
erwill it have to be abolished by an
amendmcat to the Constituton. There
is a eblidish simplicity in the propos- t
Lion that the Lousaas Lottery ill
quaietly fold It arms, close its eyes and
expire with the last day of its chartered E
existence without a lively kicking and t
seming for a new lease of life beforer
that fatal day arrives. The lottery eam
to stay and it will stay until the order is
Issued from headquarters (the people)
commanding it to emigrate to some
other dise. And who will presume to
say that this order will ever go forth un
lees the matter b ever kept before the
people a live issue. The man who is
opposed to the agitation of this matter,
and who argues that it will die more
surely if let alone n a fried to the n
famous coneern and really wants its ex
istence continued. The truth of the
matter ls, the Louisiana Lottery will
have tobe killedlf it Is ever gotten rid
of. Its certa nnotto die a natural
death. It was sufiently powerful to
buy its way into the Cootituton of the
State and will be found able to buy a
new lease of lif when the time come I
for . Andl allowed to do busin u
Interupted until 186 it will bodily own
the Louisiana State government. The
only way to get rid of the eseer is to
elect a legislature that can be depeaded
on to takethe matter in hand and see
that the people have a hearing o the
subject. By no means let the agitation
of thesabjeeteease. Let Itbe the issue
or the next State campaig.--nrmto
