the Names Given It Tho estimation in which the Louisi ana Lottery is held by representative 1 business men in Washington is shown in the interviews printed below These show that the great majority ot those I holding positive views on the subject I are opposed to the lottenT and recog 1 nizo the fact that it affects business 1 injuriously by carrying away large sums of money that should be speaa here Very few are willing to express approval of it William I have no means of knowing much about the amount of money that is sent out of i town for lottery tickets but I am op i posed to gambling in any form and think the laws against it should be en forced I have reason to believe that verv many people here dabble in Louisiana Lottery tickets but I doubt whether enough money is spent in that way to affect business very much IANBBunon Bko The Louisiana 1 Lottery is a great fizzle Probably I there are few in our employ who do not i invest in it and they are just throwing their money away for they never get a i cent of it back The thing is simply a public nuisance Geoboe The lottery isvery injurious to general business in my opinion for the immense amount of money spent upon it in Washington is io much thrown away Ashman I really think more money comes in from the lottery than goes out toward it They ask anybody to play and it is better to in vest a dollar in a lottery ticket than for whisky A Strabbuboer The trouble is that the lottery catches the poorest classes who very often I believe go without the necessaries of life in order to purchase the tickets It has a de moralizing effect generally and Thb Crane deserves credit for the manner in which it is fighting it Louis I am opposed to lotteries on general principles The Louisiana swindle takes a great deal of money out of town and very little of it gets back It is therefore a bad thing for business Mb I know much about the effect of the lottery on general business but I do know that it is an infamous concern and The Critic deserves great credit for the stand it has taken on this subject There is scarcely a store in town where lottery tickets are not bought and they might as well be thrown Into the fire I am glad to lx giveu this opportunity of placing myself on record as opposed to this gigantic fraud Percy Lottery is a vice in the sense that it upsets the cqutli lirium and steady going habits of the masses Every person who purchases a lottery ticket is not only throwing his or her money away in a hopeless effort to gain riches but far worse in help ing to bring up a nation of gamblersYouths sce their elders indulging in such 'practice and hear a rumor of I some one drawing a prize from a lottery (which rumor ninety nine chances out of one hundred is either false entirely or greatly exaggerated) and rush with their little savings oftentimes their last cent to buy a lottery ticket Thou sands of dollars is monthly sent from this city for such schemes and little or none returns Lotteries never made a community rich and never will I commend the course of The Clime and trust I may see lottery concerns shut up their doors for want of patronage A I don't know very much about the effect on busi ness but judging from what I see in the papers about the drawings I should say that Washington gives the concern a great deal of money and it is pcr haps an injury to legitimate business lhave no doubt that it is what influ ences so many of the people in this town to try to live without paying their bills All gambling schemes must of course have a more or less demoral izing effect John I have always understood that lotteries are a bad thing for the whole country No lottery or fair for lottery purposes is allowed in thia District but it is surprising the amount of money that is sent out of this city to lotteries I think they are worse than a circus for that It has a strong tendency to injure business and takes money principally out of the pockets of poor people who cannot af ford to lose it Almost no money at all comes back to represent the large amount drawn from circulation here I think if they can banish the sale of lottery tickets from the District it will be a good thing Lotteries are a great damage to the poorer classes I think that money enough goes out of the city monthly to injure the volume of business but the injury to morals is greater I think the Idttcry business does as much damage as the whisky business I doubt if they will bo able to gel rid of it I think the business has already become too large for Congress to handle Henderson I most cm phatically think that the sale of lottery tickets is detrimental to the business of any city or town more especially so in city as we are so largely depend ent on the Department salary and he has so much time on his hands as a rule that he is more apt to try the chances of speculation than the labor ing man who is the mainstay of busi ness in other cities I favor any mca 6 sure before Congress looking to its abolition I think lotteries arc a bad thing They take too much money away from the District I think the sale of them in Washington should be stopped A There is no doubt that lotteries are a bd thing for Wash i ington They take a great deal of money out pf the city It would be better for the city and the people if the sale of lottery tickets could be stopped in the District Benjamin I think lotteries one of the greatest source of gambling the District of Columbia They ought to be stopped someway At least fljUVW goes out or uere every mourn for lottery tickets and only about $1000 ot it comes back Goldschmidt The Louisiana Blate Lottery is an institution to which I am thoroughly opposed It has cost me a great deal of money Now imagine that I mean 1 have spent this money in it What I mean is that 1 have been unable to collect debtsowing me Itccauso the people I trusted wasted their substance in playing lot tery I have it in black and white from a man who owes me a largo amount of rent that the reason he is unable to pay is through his investments in this in famous concern It ought certainly to be abolished and The Critic deserves rrrnat credit for the nianner in which it is showing it up I would not be much opposed to it if it were conducted Id the same manner as lotteries in Europe where in the course of time a man will while not receiving

there for ad vertising purposes I lived for some time in New Orleans and thoroughly understand the working of the scheme It is a fraud from beginning to end James Topham The evil is a very demoralizing one and ought to be suppressed It is downright robbery and those who invest their dollars do not get more than one in a thousand back Bryan Jr Every dollar that goes out of the city for lottery tickets is lost to the business of the place Some men will put their last dollar in lottery tickets and go without bread to do so inancially It is in jurious to the business of the city Thousands of dollars go out of it and only small sums come tn II I thing about the Louisiana never bought a ticket in it nor did I ever come across who had won a prize In it Moses You can put me down as condemning the thing and in the strongest possible terms Any man who could be found selling a lottery ticket should be promptly sent to the penitentiary and every man who is fool enough to buy one should be sent to keep him company As a man who has taken chances all his life and has given the question some study I say that the chances arc ninety nine to one against you in the Louisiana State fraud Woodward Of course the Louisiana Lottery is injurious to busi ness owing to the large amount of money it takes out of town but what is more important it is injuri ous from eveiy other point of view It has a demoralizing effect on the minds of the people as must every institution that flourishes against the law and more especially when it happens to be a gambling concern AI unhesitatingly put myself on record as in favor of its abolition II Hoeke Of course it must bo an injury to business I have never given much' thought to the matter but I am told that at least $30000 a month goes out of this city for lottery tickets Of course there is nothing worth men tioning received in return and I think there can be but one opinion as to the injurious effect of such a onesided system of business Metzerott I am opposed to lotteries above every form of gam bling People will persist in taking chances in some form or other but lot teries have a more demoralizing effect on business and everything else than horse racing or betting of any kind I was pleased to see The Critic refuse the Louisiana advertisem*nt The only effective way to put the con corn down is to prevent it from adver tising and I hope to see other papers compelled by law to follow The example I lived for seven years abroad In a country where every body invests in lotteries and had a very good opportunity to see the evil effects of such concerns No good ever comes of these and they only cause ruin misery and poverty They are a severe tax on the poorer class of people and much injury must be done to Wash ington by such a large amount of money going out for lottery tickets and such a small amount coming back Isidor Saks The natural inference is that the large amount which I am told goes out of the city for Louisiana Lottery tickets every month must have a bad effect upon business I have however never given the matter much thought and cannot speak with author ity upon it Where so much goes out of the city and so little returns as is the case with Louisiana Lot tery dealings there must certainly be an'evil effect on the general business of the city although this may not per haps be perceptible I believe in any form of gambling and 1 certainly think it infamous that it should be permitted to be carried on openly as is the case with tho Louisiana Lottery It certainly has a very injurious effect upon busi ness not only directly through the loss of the money taken out of the District by it but indirectly owing to the man ner in which it leads people into un businesslike habits and its general dc 1 moralizing effects William A Lotteries on courage persons to foolishly spend money that they would put to a bettei use I think the sale of tickets in the District should be abolished There is a large amount of money taken out ot this city every month Poor persons are tempted by the offer of large prizes 1 to spend money they need very badly for their livelihood mere is very lit tle of it comes back Sargent I look upon lotteries as a game of heads I win tails you lose They are taking the bread out of a great many poor mouths in this city Ttfiink that any legislation which will break up the sale of tickets here will be wise and wholesome I think lotteries are like they take money out of a city without any return They are bad for the business interests of any city There is just so much moucy circulating and when it is withdrawn to some other place and docs not return it hurts our best interests Money to loan on good security TITLE CO 470 La ave Money IN ALL SUMS TO LOAN ON BEAL

one knows This morning he made a round of all the newspaper offices He was about sixty years oid shabbily dressed short of stature and wearing sandy colored hair and beard which was thin and unkempt
