Hut the reform met opposition In an un
expected quarter. The Presbyterian elder
who then occupied the White House ob

it was class legislation; that it purported
lo suppress pooling, while it actually, by Its
excepting clause, legalizesl it lor a siH'cial
REOPENED" THEIR PLACE8.
The crowd that had moed out of the
Seventh street ciens neard this with rejoic

aud with banners flying nil along the line
or their procession. Their places were re
opened, and betting on races everywhere,
ou prize fights, dog fights nix! eve-ry sort of
"siorting cent" was more free and in
larger proportions than ever. All told
tne re-sorts were iiandlln money at the rate
of five to ten millions a year.
When Congress came back the clamor
for legislation, was renewed. The first an
swer was, "We have done all we ran for
you." But the public would not accept
this. "Find out what the gentleman at
the other end or the Avenue will approve,"
was the next word, "then we'll try to pass

J to be dealt with. It was necessary to in
sert tlie mllc-llmlt clause, which, a little
more general, still permitted the pool sell
ing at Bennlngs. This passed, and to the
surprise of some, rccei'.esl the President's
signature without a quiver. It -did every
thing he had complained of iu the other bill,
but In another way. The Seventh street
resorts were closed.
Then came A. A. Blmey as the people's
representative in criminal prosecutions.
He insisted th.it laws against gaming must
be enforced. The act or 1883, he thought,
was erfeclive to pool selling. It contained
no exemption for the Bcnnings track. Mr.
Birney won several fights involving the old
law. A last stand was made in the Fred
Miller case, and Henry E, Davis argued
keenly and persistently, but Judge Cole
first, and finally the Court of Appeals, lust
spring decided fo-Mr. Birney.
This fall the Couover case for promoting
policy was fought over'agulu, aud Conover
was nnaiiy convicted.
THE LAST RESORT.
Almost the only public refuge tor men
who enjoy tho gambling fever was the
"ticker" ofriccs. Or these there are very
many in the city. They are located In pre
tentious offices In the best quarters aud In
back rooms up stairs, with hardly business
enough to keep the telegraph operator from
starving. Some of them have no operator,
but their po'trons'elonot know thedifference.
They can be found ou F, bctwee-n Thir
teenth and Fifteenth; on Flfti'enth, be
tween tlie avenue and II; ou G, between
Ninth and Eleventh; on Seventh, between
Pennsylvania avenue and I; on F, between
Sixth and Tenth. This does not mean that
they are In every house, or even every block,
in these, localities, but it means that
brokers" orfices, some or which may como
within the District attorney's interpreta
tion of the law of 1883 against gaming
are to be found in the limits named.
The total amount of money divertiHl
from the homes of clerks and from the ordi
nary channels or trade by the "ticker"
orfices Is said to bo very large, something
like $00,000 a month.
Under the law the owners of buildings
are liable to fine or imprisonment if thuy
permit gaming on their premises. The
penalty Is one year In Jail or $CC0 fine.
Not only the ow ner, but tlie tenant who
sublets It Is In danger of prosecution.
These fucts have already created quite
a stir among property owners, jr Mr.
Kurnilzki should be couvicted the dis
turbance "will amount almost to a panic.
The penalty for Mr. Kurnilzki, as for
others who luay be convicted of gaming,
is five years in prison.

The semi-annual tidal wave of 1 ramps
is upon the city. It Is a question whether
the Influx this season is heavier than for
a corresponding iieriod of last year, but It
is at least as heavy. It Is upon this ioiut
that tramp authorities differ.
The kind people, at the Central Union
Mission told The Tinie-s last night that
the number of tramps is no greater than Is
Usual at tills season, but the police, who
are also familiar with the tramp-qucstlon.
contradict the mlssloners. During the
past year the Information has been passed
around in the hobo fraternity that Wash
ington Is not so soft a place us it Used
to be. Washington was once the capital
of Irntiiikloin, because it was the "easiest"
place hi the land. Tramps say that it
uscsl to be that even an uncultured tramp
could "turn a flop," or "g-i a itod" he-re,
but that now the most experienced mem
ber of the profession finds difritcltv In
Even pious tramps have to taw onc
sixtccnth of a cord of wood for a break
fast, supper, or a lodiiing. Then the;
police a"re hostile and are prone to confuse '
a tramp with what they understand to be !
COLD NIGHTS PROLIFIC.
The recent cold nights have nude mani
fest the number of tramps here. The muni
cipal lodging-house was filled up last highl
and the Central Union Mission had its bunks
full. None were accommodated In the i,-
lice stations unless an tin ravorablccommcut
appeared opposite their names un the sta
tion blotter. Last season the iKiHcemau
was a friend to the tramp, but claims tuut
his friendship was imposed on. Last
winter hundreds of tramps found lodgings
ut the stations. The lodgers rooms of
Nos. 1, 7, 4, and C were usually well
filled each night.
The tramps learned that tlie Municipal
Lodging House, where it was necessary to
saw wood in order to sleep, closed at 10
p. in. They would apply nt the stations i
nt about half past ten. and the kind
hearted officers had not the sternness to
cast them out. Finally the policemen
learned that they were using the stations
because they were cheaper than the lodging
house. Then they began to term tramps
The gentlemen of the road rdtntcd thl
and as a rule refuse now to patronize the
stations. The station clerks hav: explicit
orders not to furnish lodgings.
FULL BY NIGHTFALL.
The capacity of the lodging- -puse Is
nlrout seventy-five nnd It is filled nightly.
The menu is about what iramis lite,
soup, !eof, bread, coffee, and p Haloes.
Wherever practicable the loclgn is rc
qulrcel to pay In advance by sawing the
btlpukited amount of woo.L
It is the same way at the Central Union
Mly-ion. Most of their patrons arrive; at
Washington without reference or bag
gage, and It Is considered exces-dlngly gcxjd
form to have them saw wood in advance,
though exceptions are made to lids ruling.
It Is also fald that thete exemptions are
resionible for several small unsettled
bills at the mission.
There is but one unusual feature abnnt
the tramps this season and that Is their
youth. All the authorities agree on this.
The ave-rage age of the gue-sts of the mis
sion is twenty-seven ye-ars.
AT THE LODGING-HOUSES.
A visit last nlghtto the 15-cent lodging
houses proved that they were full. Not
all the lodgers there are tramps, or course,
but a respectable percentage or them are.
These tramps represent the successful
members or the "perfe-h." These are the
ones who by "f.irklng a soil" on "the
ilrag" were able to "turn a Hop." The
Times sought to talk with the police alxiiit
the general characteristics of th" tramps.
but they seemed unwilling lo treat the
subject candidly. They evinced a dispo
sition to twist their dubs somewhat fur
tively. They proml.sl. or rather thre-at-en.sl,
to make this the wannest winter
which tramps have ever i"iiericnced in
Washington. It Is almost fatal for a tramp
to apply to the police for lodging.

Every etrort has lieen made to keep these
facts secret, but they have k-aked out at

Durraut's attorneys knew this secret then
aud know It now. In giving his sealed
statement to his attorneys Durrant made a
special written request that It was not
to be opened until alter the trial, and then
only after conviction.
