HOW THE PEOPLE ♦RE HUM
Gift Swindles and Lottery EsterPnrer•
There are over two ,thouaand of these
swindling establishments in New York.
There are about thirty heavy concerns, which
do the principal business. These change
their location and their names often: By a
flourishing concern the number of letters re
ceived daily is from two hundred to five bun
dred. These letters come mainly from the
country—many from the West, more ftvrn
the South. The swindles are hoed upon
some benevolent scheme, such as the "Asy
lum for Sick and Wounded Soldiers " ; or,
"rnion Jewelers' Society ," or, "Sailors'And
Soldiers' Home ;" or, "Orphans' Institute."
Sometimes these concerns run a newspaper,
and offer a gift to every subacribsT. Thou
sands of letters are received at the headquar
ters of the police from victims asking redress':
sending for the prizes ; exposing Imposition ;
pointing out the locality where the swindlers
do their business .and asking the police to
break up the den of sharpers. Why the po
lice do not do it, and put an end to this rob
bery, will be seen in another place. ' Three
out of the five letters received at the police
headquarters are from victims who have
been swindled out of amounts varying from
ten to two hundred dollars.
It is estimated that in the Benson, and It is
a short one usually, during which one of
these gilt enterprises runs, from one hundred
thousand dollars to half a million of money
is received. There is scarcely a city or town
in the Union to which circulars are not sent,
and from which victims are not secured.
From sonic den in the city, or from, some
store fitted up for the occasion, a scheme is
got np In aid of the
. "Orphan's Institute." By
the aid of directories, post office lists, and
other means, the mites of hundreds of thou
sands of persona are obtained from all parts
of the country. Circulars are sent to each of
these persons, containing a list of prizes to be
drawn, the numbers, and all the parapher
nalia of a lottery. Each party is made an
agent. Each is to sell tickets. Each Is to
keep quiet, as a knowledge of the premised
prize to one party would create dissatisfac
tion among the rest. But In every case ten
dollars must be mailed before theprize can
be sent on. The party is enjoined to state
whether the prize shall be sent on in a draft
or in "greenbacks." Ten or fifteen days, at
the most, are allowed to respond. As the
prize is supposed to be worth from one "bun
dred to five hundred dollars, the party
catches at the bait, sends on the ten dollars,
andoof course that is the last of it. As a
specimen of these circulars, the minute In
structions in regard to the prizes,sending the
money, arc., to prevent the party from com
ing or sending, the following circular, re
ceived by the authorities from a victim, will

Your present will be sent promptly in ten
days after the reception of the percentage.
Don't send for us to ship your present and
you pay on delivery. We cannot do It, as
we would hate to employ more 'help than
you would want to pay, and thus lessen the
profits of the ticket holder. Also avoid send
ing to your friends to call and get your pres
ents ; it not only gives them trouble, but It is
a great annoyance ; they are always sure to
calf when we have the most business on
hand, and they insist on being waited on
first, &c., &c. To accommodate them we
have to run through the immense amount of
names, and many times we have two of the
same name ; then we have to refer to onr
register containing the name, town and State,
to get the correct one. Then, again, if you
send by them, or should come yourself .you
incur expense, for you know what you have
drawn by your notice, and you see,by a vote
of your committee you cannot collect at
sight, No article is delivered under ten
days' notice, so you or your friends would
have to wait ten days before being able to
obtain what is against your name. We have
made this rule and must adhere to it, for
those that send us their per centage we feel
in duty bound to wait on first ; therefore we
ask, as a great personal favor, that upon the
receipt of your notification, if there is a per
ceutage at a few dollars to be paid, send it
by mail, then you will not only have done
us a great favor and saved us much unnec
essary trouble, but you will, at the same
time, have kept the matter in a straight,
business-like manner, so that it will avoid
all mistakes by our employee, apd you
will be sure to get our presents .at the time
Those that will be notified that they have
drawn presents valued at ten dollars, up
wards to twenty-five dollars, and they arc
many, they have no percentage. We have
passed a vote not to deliver any article from
the office,but must in all eases be sent by
mail or express at their expense, from the
fact that we should be so overrun by those
living neat that we should have to neglect
our friends at a distance, an remember to
send us word how you want it sent. Write
name and town plainly, so any one that
i reads can read and have no mistake.
Money can be sent at oar risk by maiL
The surest way is, put your money in a let-
ter-and pay•twenty cents to have it regis- '
tered, if a large amount; but where it isonly
a few dollars, put It in a letter so that it will
look small, and then three cents will answer.
We seldom 'sibss litters; and when a bill of
a large denomination is placed in a letter it
does not show that it contains anything, and
If it looks so It Is sure to arrive safe, and
thus you would save Seventeen cents; and
as a penny saved is as good as ,two earned,
Whencan take your choice.
When you receive your .present be kind
enough to infortn us of the fact, so we can
file away as delivered. In case you do not
receive it at the expiration of ten days, be
prompt in giving us word, to we can look it
up. On any business enclose stamp for re
turn answer. •
The boeks will be closed mitsr . fifteen days
from the date of your notification, sa it must
be closed as soon as possible in order to re
lieve the cot:manse, and as it will give all
ample time to remit or send their order how
the present must be sent.

Not one in fifty who receives tickets• ever
buys theta. Almost all the victims are part
ners in the fraud. They receive notice from
the managers In New York that that ticket
purchased by them has drawn the prize.
Any number is put in that the managers
please. The prize is a gold watch, worth
two hundred dollars, or a diamond, or some
other thing worth that amount. Perhaps
from ten thousand to fifty thousand persons
receive the same notice. The parties. haze
bought no such ticket. Tbey bold no such
ticket. They think the bitter directed to
them is a mistake---intendi for somebody

this arrangement very well. They know the
victim will not dare prosecute, far he is a
party to the swindle. The establishment
pockets two hundred thousand dollars for
three months' experiment, removes to an
other part of the city, takei a new name, and
commences the same - swindle over again.

Dear Sir we are determined to send
a good prize to your neighborhood, and with
this resolution we have been looking around
for an opening in which, by presenting some
discreet reliable person with a prize of a f -
hundred dollars, it would hare the desired
effect to increase th e number of our custo
mers. We accidentally met with your ad-
dress, and the idea occurred to us at once
that you were Just the persod to aid us /a
our enterprise. We therefore make to you
proposition that must strike 'you as being
no less novel than it is liberal. and that you
may not suppose that there is any deception
in it we inform you that the prize money
does not come out of our pocket, but out of
the pocket of the lottery managers, and we
shall not lose by sending a few hundred dol
lars in prize money, but shall gain by it in
the increased amount of business we shall ex
pect from ycitiineigfiborhood when you show
the "greenbacks,' and make it generally
known that they are the prucet ds of a prize
,drawn at our office. We make this offer to
you in strict' confidence—the proposal is
plain. We are ,to send a certificate for a
chanee to draw ki prize of a few hundred
dollars. You•.are to show the money. The
result will be that hundreds of dollars will be
sent to us for tickets. You may be the gainer
of a few hundred dollars. We shall begain
era by our sales, and the parties who send
for tickets may be gainers by drawing prizes.
Every one that sends will of course expect
to draw a prize, not knowing the offer we
made privately to you, which is as follows :
Send us-VO to pay the managers, and we
will send to you, securely sealed, a certificate
of a package of tickets in the enclosed
scheme; and to set at rest any doubt you
-may have of our sincerity, we hereby bind
ourselves to send a second certificate in any
of our brilliant extra lotteries, for nothing, if
the first we send you does not draw you,
clear of all expenses, twelve hundred
dollars; and mark, this fact, to send you
twelve hundred dollars out of the Managers'
pocket will cost us nothing, but to 'send you
an extra certificate will take money out of
our own packet We mention 'blue-merely
to show you that it is our interest to send
you a prize. We hand you an envelope
with our address. Enclose to us $lO, and
state in your letter whether we shall send
you a draft, on your nearest bank, or shall
we &tend you the amount in "greenbacks" by
mail, which last . perhaps will suit you bet
ter. Please let us have your order by return
mail, as we shall have to order the ceititi
eate from the managers for you, and believe
us, Yours, respectfully, -
U. A. Tarr on & Co.
P. S.—ln remitting, please send post
office order or by express, or register
the letter, to insure safe delivery to us.
Another favorite mode of swindling is car
ried on by web whose "sands of life have al
most run out." The party represents him
self as a retired clergyman ; one who had
suffered long from asthma, or from a bron
chial affection, or one nearly dead with the
dyspepsia, or wasting away with consump
tion. Through a recipe from an old doctor,
or an old nurse, or an Indkn, the party oh.
tamed relief. Out of gratitude for the re
covery, the healed clergyman or individual
gives notice that he will send the recipe
"without charge" to any sufferer who may
desire it. Circular's by the thousand are
sent to the address of persons in all parts of
the country. Each person is required to put
a postage stamp in his letter, for the trans
mission of the recipe. Thousands of letters
come back in response. The recipe is sent,
attached to which is the notice' that great
care must be taken in securing the rightkind
of medicine. Not one apothecai yin a hun
' dred in the country has the medicine named.
The benevolent holder of the recipe adds to
other things, that should the petty not be
able toset the medicine, if he will enclose
three or five dollars, ea the case , marbt, the
New York party will make the purchase and
send It onby express. Dreaming of nefmud,
the money is tent as directed. If the medicine
is sent on at all, it costa about fifty cents to
the buyer, and a handsome business is done.
If the swindle takes, the party will poste
from twenty to filly thousand dollars, break
up the concern and be out of the way before
the victim can reach New York.
The thirty large gift establishments re
ceive about Ave hundred letters a day. Full
three-fifths of these letters contain money.
Some of the letters detained by the authori
ties were tbund to contain sums as high as
three hundred dollars. Directed to different
parties, they are taken out by the same per
sons. the medicine swindle, and gift enter
prises are run by the same. parties. The ad- I
yertising for partners is worthy of especial
notice. A man with a capital of from one
hundred to fiye.hundred dollars is wanted.
He can make one hundred dollars* day and
run no risk. The victim appears. He has a
little money, or his wife has some, or he has
a little place that he can mortgage. Thegitt
swindle is open to him. The basket of let
ters is opened in his presence. He is offered
a share in the dazzling scheme. He pave
his money, helps open the letters for a day
or two, and then the scheme dissolves in the
night. Almost all these large swindles have
smaller ones that go along with them.
The names of these panic., who are carry- I
nig on these gientm swindle. ere well
known to our police. The inane-era hero
been arrested dozen time. Broken up in
one plem under a titri• name they open
yeah. Thousand of letters are rent to the
police hx.dquarters from victims tpk.inF for
redrem But nut one of tht.a: letters is
complaint Without r complaint the police
are powyrimi. The Ictim. belong; tothe
country. Yost of then have respec.mble
standing. They know the thing was illegal
1' when .they presented it to them. It was a
lottery, and nothing more. When they sent
their ten dollars to secure the prise, they
knew it was a chest on their part, for they
had bought no ticket, and if there was a
prize they were not entitled to it. They dare
not commence a snit against- these parties
and go to New York and prosecute it. The
swindlers tmderstand this perfectly well and
defy the authorities. If gentlemen from the
rural disuicts love to be swindled and will be
parties to the chest?, refuse to make a corn
glint or hack up a complaint is the courts.

In almost every case gift enterprises are
carried oh under an saimme4 name, and when
arrested the parties prove that they are not
thelnen who carry on the business. When
goods are seized an owner appears, not be
fore named, to replevin the stock. A. A.
Kelley seems to have been the originator of
this method of swindling. Ile began in Chi
pgo with the Skating Rink. He then went
to New York and began the gift enterprise
and dollar lottery scheme. He got up a
Mock Turtle Oil Stock Company. He swin
dled a mad in Erie county, who bad hint in
dicted. He was arrested by the police on a
bench warrant, sent to Erie county to be
tried, and is now serving the State in prison.
Read & Co., Clinton Hail, now doing the
largest gift lottery basinese in the city, can
not be found, though the police have arrested
the subordinates a dozen times.
One of the great firms in 'New York was
run by Clarke, Webtter & Co. The police
came down on the establishment and took
away six truck loads of books, circulars and
goods. They found directories for every
town and city in the country. What were
not printed were written. No such individ
uals as Clarke, Webster & Co., existed. it.
man known as Wm. M. Elias appeared as
the owner of the goods, and demanded them
on a writ of replevin. The police refused to
give them up, and gave bonds. The goods
still remain at the headquarters.
Many victims who receive notice that
their ticket, which they never bought, his
drawn a prize, end who arc requested to
tend on the ten dollars to pay expenses and
percentage, try to do a sharp thing. They
send the ten dollars op to General Kennedy,
the Superintendent df the Police, with the
request that he will pay it and take the prev
ent if it is all right. Such parties generally
get a sharp answer from the official, inform
ing them that gambling is unlawful ; that
the business they are engage in is guilt -
ling ; that the whole cot era- is a swindle,
and that they had better put their money it,
their pockets and mind their business.

the slow boys read tile following:
It is not unusual tt find that the leading
men of our day, or any other day, were very
unpromising boys. Daniel Webster, the ac
knowledged statesman of America, was no
toriously dull when a boy, a poor scholar in
college, and graduated without honor. Hen
ry Ward Beecher, indisputably the most
popular divine in this country. was a fourth
rate scholar when young, and completed his
studies without distinction, except on the
play-ground. Robert Rantoul stood near
the foot of his class in college. Sir Walter
Scott was rather a dullard when a boy. Pat
rick Henry. whose oratory stirred the hearts
of the P. F. V.'s, was too stupid a boy tu
keep on the shady side of the tree under
which he would lie, like an unthinking
brute, the live-long day. •
