Lottery Ticket Dealers  (1870) 

Louis Julius Lindauer in The Philadelphia Enquirer on April 19, 1870.

Lottery Ticket Dealers. In the case in which it was sought to obtain the release of Louis Lindauer, who is undergoing imprisonment, having been convicted under an indictment charging him with doing business as a lottery ticket dealer without payment of special tax, on the ground that the law imposes penalties on lottery dealers but not on lottery ticket dealers, Judge Batchford has refused to discharge Lindauer; holding that the definition of a lottery ticket dealer given in that part of the law in posing special tax is so comprehensive as to include include any one who could possibly come under the head of a lottery dealer.
