Gambling a Disease
Of Pernicious Tendency
By RICHARD L. HAND. Lawyer.
REGARD gambling in every form as UNWORTHY AND
REPREHENSIBLE, WHETHER FOUND IN A GAM
BLING DEN OR IN A CHUROH FAIR. I HOLD IT
ALL IN CONTEMPT.
I am well nwuro, of course, how widely prevalent tlio practice is,
until, with great numbers of people who should hold moro correct
views and avoid the practice absolutely as a matter of principle, thero
has grown up a habit which makes their interest in a thousand forms
of innocent and proper amusement dependent upon the zest given by
having money or somo other thing which they value staked upon tho
IT IS A DISEASE AND OF MOST PERNICIOUS TENDENCY UPON
OUR WHOLE SOCIAL LIFE. MY CONDEMNATION OF IT FOR
THESE REASONS IS SURPASSED BY MY CONTEMPT FOR IT AS
AN EVIDENCE OF MENTAL WEAKNESS AND FOLLY.
But to hold it to he a crime is to indict a very large portion of tho
entire community, including all who take part in 'common games of
billiards, bridge whist, golf, baseball and every other popular recrea
tion known to the peoplo of almost every civilized land, with somo
hirmll btake or disbursement dependent upon tho result, and hold them
guilty of crimes.
NOTHING BUT AN EVOLUTION OF SOUNDER THINK
ING AND MORE CORRECT VIEWS WILL HAVE ANY EF
FECT TOWARD REMOVING THIS EVIL, which is absolutely
beyond effective treatment by any kind of legislation or judicial action.
