THK TKJFFALO COURIER SUNDAY. NOVEMBER 30. 18SQ. THE LAW OF LOTTERIES. The District Attorney's; Definition of Illegal Prize Scheme Ai y Merchant fy Give Awn Wliet He Chooses, , that the Element of C bancs I Not Involved Tne Case of Mr. Welch. District-Attorney George Ti, Quinby, In addition to his regular street attire, was decked out In war paint and featberi yesterday. An afternoon paper had attempted to put the Little Giant in a big hole, and he objected seriously to the proposed operation. This, in eff est, is the story: B. Welch runs a cigar store at the corner of Main and Eagle streets; he came here from a Western city, and, accordlngto his statement, In order to keep pace of the ; trade, invented prize schemes for his patrons. First he offered a t 1 note with eTery $10 worth of cigars old; his second adventure was a drawing for a gold watch ; a ticket was given ith every 25-cent purchase, which contained a number corresponding with the number, od a coupon which hed been torn off; when a certain number of tickets had been disposed of.the coupons were put into a hat and shaken up, and the number drawn by a blindfolded man won the watch. Mr. Welch, in an'interview printed yesterday, stated that he was surprised one day to receive a letter from Mr. Quinby, wherein he was accused of. violating the Jaw in the management of bis business, and cautioned to stop under penalty of being brought before the grand jury. What surprised and puzzled Mr. Welch, according to his statement, was that he should be singled out of all the dealers in this city for punishment, as he asserts that there isn't a tobacco dealer in the city who is not working some similar pnza scheme. Hp support of this declaration he is reported as producing circulars and hand-bills from various dealers, offering prizes for the return of tags or letters or cards attached to different brands of tobacco. Mr. Welch then enlarged upon statements concerning the prize business; hs is reported as saying that the Bronners give away a magic lantern with very S5 purchase; 8. B. Thing, a small drum with a $2 purchase; a Main Street firm has a guessing scheme for a stove; and a broad way saloonkeeper sold chances on a wheel of fortune for Thanksgiving turkeys at 10 cents each. " And yet,1? the cigar-dealer Is quoted as saying, " for soma reason I seem to be the only offender that the District Attorney baa discovered." Mr. Quinby was encountered in the Hotel Iroquois yesterday afternoon, after the appearance of these statements. " I am going right over and see this man," he aid severely ; " I shall return in a few minutes." Presently he did return. " I asked this man." he began, deliberately. if he was re sponsible for the statements in this article. He answered that be was not responsible for several of the statements In the interview. He says he doesn't know anything about the circulars printed announcing prizes for a certain number of tags or wrappers." Mr. Quinby was then asked, for the purpose of setting all the people right upon this subject, to define the prize schemes that are lawful and the class that are not, If there is any distinction; for, without: soma statement of this character, several reputable firms in town would seem to be regular lawbreakers. " There must not be any chance connected with a gift," said the District Attorney. " That is to say, there must be no drawing. Many people have tried to evade tbe law on this point, but the statute is so broad that they cannot do it," How about merchants who make gifts with purchases over a gpsofled amount I " the Interviewer asked. ' I suppose," said Mr. Quinby, dryly, that clothing man could give away S500 with every suit of clothes. Tbe law only provides that there shall be no system of chance connected with any sale." " How about the claim of Mr. Welch that other firms are doing just what he has been - prohibited from doing f " ' It doesn't seem reasonable. He is the only person about whom any complaint has been received at my office. If others are doing the same thing, however, they ought to be dealt with in the same manner."

T. Kerr & Go. of iNo. 99 Seneca Street. Bruel wasmployed as a local and Erie County salesman! and oollector, and for some months he apparently work4 well and faithfully. His expenses ajojl accounts seemed to be all right, but a few months after he went to work a discrepancy wja found in his accounts. He was called to account for it, but the matter didn't seijn - to amount to much, and on the 15th ;day of December, just seven months from tbe day he secured the position, he dropped into the office and, said that he was going out collecting and he meant to settle up a number of accounts. The statements were all made out.i and he asked Mr. Henry Barnard of the fiitu to meet him at Frank Fischer's oh Pecktajam Street with the statements. Mr. Barnard : went to -'Fischer's place but did not find Brael, and after investigating matters carefully it was found that the missing man was an embezzler to the amount of 81.500. His femoloyers found on investigation that Bruel ji ad collected money from customers and failed to turn it in, and for weeks had falsified tis accounts to make things appear all right. J ' The matter was put n the hands of the Policej and Special Jaco Schmidt J of No. 4 Station was told to investigate the matter. Tbe special soon found tbt Bruel had gone to Chicago and that his wife; had smti their furniture thither and followed him. The Chicago authorities were notified,, but , Bruel managed to slip through their fingjrf and went to Canada. It if said that he caraej hack towards Buffalo, and he spent one night at Niagara Falls on the American side. Nothing further was heard from him until fabout four days ago, when Special Schmidt located him at Omaha. The authorities there wefe notified and yesterday afternoon Superintendent Morln received a dispatch from Chief of ' Police W, S. Seavey of that city, saying that' Bruel was under arrest there, and that he had admitted his guilt. Special Schmidt was furnished with requisition papers and he started j last night to bring the prisoner tack home, i ' REAL. ESTATE ITEMS. THE USEFUL MANDAMUS. It Will be Used by an Indignant Citizen Who Doesn't Want Electricity. Regtna Busch has filed a complaint in an action brought by ber in the Supreme Court against the city of Buffalo to restrain Major Bishop from signing a ' resolution adopted by tha Common Council November 17 to light Delaware Avenue between Bird and Kenmore avenues with electricity. The plaintiff alleges that Delaware Avenue between the points named is nothing but a country road; that there are but six houses in the stretch of 2 miles to be lighted; that It la not likely to become a residence street for a long time ; that tbe residents ot the houses now on the street wish to burn natural gas, but the Buffalo Gas Light Company refuses to lay pipes in the street unless permitted to light it; that gas Is more economical and therefore more acceptable to the residents, and that by signing the resolution the Mayor will deprive the people of natural gas as fuel. United States District Attorney Alexander is Mrs. Busch's attorney. In August the Council ordered that gas lamps be placed on Delaware Avenue between Bird and Kenmore avenues, but a second resolution, adopted November 17, ordered I the street lighted by electricity.
