AN APOLOGY FOR TATTERS ALL'S.

Why should not Tattebsall's Betting Office be prohibited by
■statute as well as any other? Not only because it is a private Club.
There is also a political reason for tolerating every establishment which,
like that of Messes. Tatters all, affords facilities for betting in high
life. The usefulness of such institutions is illustrated by the cases of I

Dukes and other Noblemen from time to time ruined by their connec-
tion with, the Turf. The prevalence of gambling on race-horses
amongst the nobility, whilst occasioning no robbery of employers,
tends to reduce the privileged classes to the common level, and restore
the balance of Society.

Motto eor French Red Republicans of 1870.—Rouge et " Noir."
