mot In special session here todny. The meet-
Insr was a sccrot ono. At Its conclusion Mr.
Iluckonburgcr of Sioux City , who hail acted
ns sccrotnry , Imndod the following report of
the mooting to the Associated press ropro-
ecntatlvo :
ICANsts Crrr. Mo. , Sept. 17. At a mooting
of the Western association held at the Mid
land hotel September 17 , 18H. ! at 3 p.m.
there wore present : Denver , by D. S. Pack
ard , nrcsldonf Omnho , liy W. II. MeCord ,
president ; Sioux City , by II. E. Mulcaby
nnd C. M. Buckcnborgcr ; end Kansas City.
Ijy John W. Spoils ami E. It. Martin. The
Denver club moved that the season of IS'Jl
bo doorucd nnd declared closed September 1 ! ! ,
18'JI , otO p. m. The motion wns carried.
Yeas : Denver , Sioux City , Omaha. Nnys :
Kansas City. . . , .
It was resolved that the association should
remain intact ana that each of the clubs bo
declared In full standlnir. The Oiimha club
announced Itself In full life , with no thought
of disbanding. The mooting adjourned to
tbo regular annual mooting In October next.
After the mooting the president announced
Jho averages of the several clubs nnd under
this announcement the Sioux City club
lands as the oennnnt winner.
Mr. Spoas objected to closing the season
nnd wanted to further contest the pennant
race , but ho was outvoted. Of course the
, Biotix City club wanted to close so as to In-
euro Its position. Omaha was anxious to bo
relieved of forfeited games at Denver and
the Denver club insisted that in Justice to It
no championship games should bo played
olsowiicra when It was having none at homo.
The many demands of tlio Kansas City
club for additional games to settle the rela
tive merits of that and the Sioux City club
Dually roused Mr. Mulcaby to consent to a
series of exhibition games to bo played at
Kansas City on Saturday ati'i Liundny next ,
and at other noints hereafter to bo agreed on.
Secretary Young was notified that'Sloux City
ns the winner of the championship of the
Western association was ready to play the
world's championship series with the winners
of the pennant of the National Icaguo.
'Jlioy Oon't-Mlcc It.
Kansas City protested against the decision
of the meeting and wilt anneal to the Na
tional Hoard of Control. The Kansas City
management holds that the season should
continue so long as any clubs survive , and
that the championship should bo fought by
the survivors.
DKNVKII , Colo. , Sept. 17. The report re
ceived hero tonight from Kansas City that a
mooting of the Western association had been
hold thcro todnv , at which D. C. Packard ,
president of tlio Denver club , was present ,
nnd that tlio season had been closed and the
pennant awarded to Sioux City , was a great
Bilrpriso to Mr. Packard and Manager Sim
W. Cantrii. Both these gentlemen are
In this city , and neither were In attendance
upon the reported Kansas City mooting1.
They are very Indignant about the matter ,
and declare that the entire affair is a scheme
of the Kansas City , Sioux City and Omaha
clubs to "do up'1 the Denver club. They de
clare that they are ready to play out the sea
son and nro holding their men for this pur
Telegrams wore sent by Mr. Packard to
night to N. E. Young , president of the Na
tional league , and L. C. Krauthoff , president
of the Western association , notifying them
that ho had never boon notified of the Kansas
City meeting nor was ho present aa reported ,
and ttint ho will contest any club claiming
the pennant lor the reason that the Delivers
have won more and lost less games than any
other club in the association. .
League aiagnatcfl Trying to Break Up
tlio Association. -
MK\V YOIIK , Sopt. 17. A carnival of base
ball mystery was begun hy the league mag
nates last night. This morning they mot in
parlor E , Fifth Avoiiuo hotel. Their objoot
jirunnrily is to goi'rkl of the Amorfcan asso
ciation if they can , but 1C they cannot , to lay
out a policy lor the establishment of a truce
between the rival organizations.
John T. Brush ot Indianapolis , the bare
mention of whoso nntno strikes terror to the
association's heart , reached the Hoffman
house last night. Ho was mot by M. Stan
ley Robinson of Cleveland , who , until the
arrival of his brother , Frank D. Robinson ,
will look out for the interests of the Cleve
land club. Charles II. Byrne of tlio Brooktvn
club was also there. Suddenly the trio dis
appeared In the crowd and the base ball pub
lic will bo compelled to wait In nnsponsc
dntll tholr momentous labors arc llimbod.
It is an open secret that Frank Robinson
has been at wprlc on Henry Von 'dor Horst
to persuade the latter to bring the Baltimore
club Into the league. Mr. Byrne has been
toying with Chris Von der Aho to , according
to a morning paper , accomplish the snmo end
with the St. Louis. They are very likely to
succeed. If they do the association will be
come nn easy prey for the Icaguo. The same
"system" used last fall In wiping out the
Players' league is now bcim ; tried on the
association. In case the present scheme
falls , the league will continue Its "po.ico
committee" until such time as their ends
shall have been accomplished. A. II. Sodon
of the Boston club is also In town.
The delegates to the National league moot
ing , after witnessing the game at Polo
grounds , reassembled tonight at the Fifth
Avenue hotel nnd at the close of the session ,
as a matter of course , President Young said
there was no news for publication.
John Day said no business was transacted
and that the delegates wore only talking matters -
tors over.
It scorns that the commlttoo appointed bv
the league to confer with the association ro-
gardlng a settlement , Messrs. Byrne , Hart
and Brush , reported that they had
accompllsod nothing , The association people
nro so fearful of treachery In their own
ranks that they ho.sltato to permit a committee -
too to consult with tbo league. It is said on
good authority that tun league never had anv
norlous designs on Baltimore and St. Louis.
Those cities would not play In the league.
Besides If thov did jump there are plenty of
other good cities ready to go into the associa
The debate hinges upon the advisability of
conferring with tlio American association.
The Boston men , Connnt and Sodon , are
known to bo opposed to n compromise and
nro backed up by Now York , Nearly nil
the other clubs nro thought to bo
In , favor of n compromise. Only two
or three of the clubs nro making money
this year nnd the rest nro anxious for pcaco
Brooklyn nnd Chicago nro Just n trlllo
uorvous about the association's ' threat to play
twenty-live cent games In these cities.
The situation in Boston Is peculiar , The
league club is uot making money. The asso
ciation club , which many bcllovo to bo the
best In the country , is proving too much for
the triumvirs. Perhaps the Boston league
club will have to como down to"J. > cents.
Colonel John Kodgors would like to bavo n
monopoly of the game In Philadelphia , but
his case is not as serious ns that of Boston.
Thora will oo another meeting tomorrow.

Both were stiot through the brain. It Is
thought Montgomery llrst shot Miss Adams

daughter of nn ox-tnombor of the legislature
and Montgomery the son of Judge Montgom

WASIIINIITOX , I ) . C. , Sopt. 17. The ease of
the Unltod States against John L. Kapler ,
nnd the two CASCS of the Unltod Stales vs
George Dupreo , will como up for nruutnontat
tno October term of the United States supreme
premo court. Each of these cajcs is an ap
plication for the discharge , by writ of habeas
corpus , from arrest for an alleged violation of
tbo anti-lottery legislation of the Unltod
States. The charge against Kapler and
against Dupreo , in ono Indictment , was the
mailing of n newspaper containing nn adver
tisement of tbo Louisiana lottery , and the
other Indictment was for the mulling of n
letter concerning the lottery. The Judgment
of the lower court was against the defend
ants and the cases were appealed to the supreme
premo couit.
Attorney General Miller has prepared the
brlof , which ho will submit lu behalf of tlio
government when the cases nro heard , and
ho has given It out for publication.
His brief stntos that nearly lit teen years
ago the exact question mooted In thcso cases ,
arising in the same way , was fully consid
ered and unanimously decided by the supreme
premo court. Since that time the principle
of that decision had boon accepted by the
people , by congress , by the executive officers
of the govnrnmont nnd by the courts ns the
settled law of the land. In making this de
cision the court said : "Tho only question
for our determination relates to the constitu
tionality of the act , nnd of that wo have no
doubt. "
Ordinarily , under such circumstances , the
attorney general says , it would seem that
the question of the constitutionality of the
legislation involved should bo doomed set
tled. It seems , however , otherwise. The
revenues poured into the coffers of the
Louisiana Lottery company by Its witless
victims are too largo to bo surrendered with
out another struggle *
As was to bo expected In such n cause , the
main effort of the counsel for the petitioners
in each , , of the briefs scorns to bo to becloud
the issue. To this end their entire
arguments assume that the refusal of
the general government to bo the in
strument for'tho circulation of lot
tery literature is tbO sumo ns
forbidding the publication or circulation of
such litornturo ; that the only escape from
the violation of the prohibition in the first
amendment to the federal constitution against
malting "a law abridging the freedom of the
press , " is for every olllcial of tbo Postoftlco
department to heroine the servant nnd every
carrier the errand boy of the Louisiana Lot
tery company. They totally ignore the fact
in at the solo effect of the act of congress Is
that the general government , Its ofllcors , em
ployes and agency shall in no way aid or
abet this business ; that its mnUbags nnd thu
hands of its servants shall not be used In
spreading and manipulating snares for its
unwary victims ; that it simply says to federal -
oral officials , ' 'Hands off. "
Kegardlnc the assumption of counsel for
defense that the right to operate a lottery
is one of the fundamental rights of man , like
the right to exorcise a profession , ns a physi
cian , or a trade , as a lauiidryman , the attor
ney general says : "It would seem hardly
worth while to spend time upon nn argument
resting upon such assumption. If it can bo
demonstrated that to prey upon one's ' fellow
uioa by moans of a lottery Is a fundamental
human right , the Dccaloguo nnd the Sermon
on the Mount , not to mention the Declaration
of Independence , ought to bo rewritten nt
onco. "
With reference to the contention of coun
sel , that the only plausible defense of tbo
lottery legislation is , that lottery is alleged
to bo of an immoral nnd injurious tendency ,
the attorney general says , that in doing this
ho again assumes as his"fundamental proposi
tion that Inasmuch us congress cannot .pass n
law directly suppressing lotteries in the
state , therefore it cannot indirectly suppress
tliem , and therefore it must aid them in the
transaction cf their business through the
' "In brief , " says the attorney general , "I
maintain , without fear of successful contra
diction , that whatever acts or enterprises
congress bos the power to make criminal
in the District of Columbia , or the torrl-
tories , it may refuse directly or Indirectly
to old , oncourngo or abet in any stile , with
out violating any obligation either to citiion
or stato. Any state may inako the practice
of this lottery company or oven the posses
sion of Its tickets within its borders with in
tent to sell , a crime. In the exercise of this
power of legislation in regard to the malls ,
as in the exercise of many of its other legis
lative powers , the attorney general holds
that congress bos n very broad discretion us
to whether it shall act at all , and If so ,
when , nnd to what extent nnd for what
purpose shall it net.
The attorney general then argues to show
thatcon'gross has the undoubted right to
legislate for tlio common good nnd says :
"Suppose n postal telcgragh should bo es
tablished , is it true that the United Stutcs
Government would bo under obligations to
transmit over its tolegsaph lines messages in
reference to all business or practice not In-
dfctablo at common law or not known to the
law books ns main m so. Could it not rafuso
to transmit telegrams boldly relating to
gambling transactions , trading upon mar-
irlns In wheat or stocks , or negotiating tbo
imrchaso and snlo of lottery tickets. Or in
regard to any oilier business which , In the
ox-orcisn of a sound discretion , congress
might declare to bo contra bones mores.
" 1 submit that no Judicial decision has
lieon cited , that it is my belief that none can
bo found , denying to congress the power
with reference to the mall with which wo
ire contending. "
Kcgnrding counsel's ' proposition , that the
lottery statute Is unconstitutional because It
is a law abridging the freedom of the press
nnd is therefore at variance with the llrst
amendment ol the constitution , the nttornoy
general submits that no question under the
llrst amendment of the constitution is In
ssno in this case , nor can it bean
an Issue , so far as the Louisiana
ottory la concerned , until a stat
ute shall bo passed forbidding , not
merely thu circulation of papers , carrying Its
idvertisomonts through the mails , but for
bidding the circulation of such newspapers
hrough any agenoy whatever. The real
sane , argues the nttornoy general , is
whether the United States government Is
compelled to become the agent of tbU lottery
Upou the the theory of the petitioners' nr-
gumont , nil postal regulations by which let-
era nro given precedence over newspapers in
.ho malls , oven In time of carriagn and dis
tribution , nro invalid. This Is certainly a
discrimination against the newspapers. It Is
abridging the freedom of the press , Thoro-
'oro the prccodenco given to letters , pro
vided for In the regulations , over nowspa-
papers Is intolerable , is a violation of the first
miondmentof the constitution , and calls for
In conclusion the attorney general says :
'My understanding Is that the decisions not
only of ths | rourt , but generally , hold that
where H number of nota nro designated In the
statute as constituting n particular crime ,
and ns to genie of such nets tha U.clslation Is
unauthorized , the courts cannot bo required
o select outnueh acts as are within the nu-
horlty of the legislature aud enforce the
aw as to thorn , rejecting it ns to the others.
