"AM. TIIK SAME IN THE END."
Tim Act Ion of Hie Postmaster
of Kl 1'iiho In refuting to allow tlio F.I Pnso
Times to bo transmitted through the innlls
pimply because It contained as news an As
soclnted Press dispatch giving a synopsis ot
tlio opinion of tlio Supreme Court of Loulsl
mm compelling the scorottiry of state to sub
mit at tlio next election a constitutional
iiiiiendiueiit passed by the Inst general as
sembly extending tho Charter of tho Louisi
ana State Lottery tweuty-llvo years, is
deserving of the severest condemnation nnd
censure, not only becnuse ot tlio Injustice of
mcli nn arbitrary proceeding, hut upon
grounds of public policy. The business
manager of tlio Times very properly had
this postmniter, who bears the historic nniuo
of Smith, arrested for unlawfully detaining
mail matter, and he was bound over to ap
pear before a commhuloner for trial, hut the
punishment whatever It will he, even If ever
meted out after many months of delay, will
not lit the crime. Nothing short of absolute
ami immediate olllclal decapitation, with
whatever other punishment tbo law provides,
would he proper for such olllclms intermed
dling with the mails. If the United States
mall Is to ho subjected to such scrutiny and
exclusion by the postmaster at El I'nso, the
postmasters at the various othes cities, towns,
villages, hnmlcts and crossroads iu the state
nnd throughout the United States have the
Mitiio right, power nnd authority, and nro of
courso at liberty to do Just as the postmaster
at Kl I'd so tins done. If the postmaster can
htop the transmission of a notvspaer because
It hns iu it the decision of a court In regard
to the Louisiana tottery, ho can also stop it
because it mentions the mime of the lottery
iu It, and if he can do this he can stop tho
post, beenuso it incidentally mentions the
name of the Louisiana Lottery Company Iu
criticising his olllclal conduct. If ho can do
this, however, he can override tho strongest
bulwark of tho liberties of the people and
violate one of the plainest provisions In the
constitutions of the United States, thereby
completely throttling tho press.
Upon the grounds of public policy the
United States government should not toler
ate such tampering with the mail. It throws
opeu the doors to fraud and, if ierniitted,
will tend to mako tho service Inefficient and
unreliable. Why not detain a letter suspect
ed of containing a lottery advertisement, and
why not opeu it to ascertain if the detention
Is legaH If its contents aro legal why then
of course it might be permitted to continue
on its journey.
The great wrong done newspaper publish
ers, however, is to allow a Kstnmster to
authoritatively detain mail matter which in
his opinln is illegal. He ought not bo por
mltted to do this. If the publisher has com
mitted uuy wrong he can bo held responsible
and be made to suffer the penalty; but a
postmnster may detain an entire edition of a
newspaper, entailing a heavy Iosi upon the
publisher, nnd yet when the mutter comes
to a final trial the court may decide that the
papers are mailable. The damage lias then
been done tbe publisher, and there seems to
be no ndequate remedy for him. 8iippo.ee
the politics of a newspaper are ohjectiounl to
the postmasters generally, and throughout
the state they choose to hold a paper be
enuso iu their opinion it is not mailable, It
would thus put it within the power of the
postal department to stop the circulation of
u newspaer ami bankrupt it, leaving the
publisher with a lot of suits against post
masters as assets. Such it state of a I la I is
leave newspaper publishers without adequ
ate remedy, and to allow such arbitrary
conduct 011 the part of otllelous postmasters
Is contrary to the institutions of this govern
ment, and it violation of the legal maxim
that each wrong hns its adequate leuiedy.
