Its Unmolested Spread in
Seven Companies With Two
Drawings a Day.
Tickets Displayed and Sold Openly
on the Streets.
A Short Description of the Drawings and
the Different Ways of Marking
The Chinese lottery business is thriv
ing just at present, in fact it appears to
be about the only thing that is going on
in Chinatown, A day or two ago a visit
was made to that favored locality and it
was found that in every store the sale
of tickets was going on openly, in fact
some of the stores announced to the
world at large that they had tickets for
sale by pasting them in their windows.
Copies of the latest drawing were found
in open boxes on the street in various
places and scattered in all directions
were seen tickets of old drawings, thrown
away as useless. Inside the stores the
Chinese store-keepers sold the tickets
over the counter and all the books and
records of drawings were kept in plain
sight. In other ci.ties on the Coast
where Chinese lotteries are going on
these things are kept bidden from the
general public and the police, and it is
only possible to obtain a ticket after the
purchaser has passed through a number
of doors which are unbolted by the
guard who carefully inspects all
strangers and refuses them admittance
if their appearance is suspicious. In
Los Angeles these precautions are un
necessary because the police have not
been in the habit of arresting Chi
nese lottery ticket dealers. It is
stated that the reason why the police
are not active in this direction is because
the cases are so slow in coming to trial
in the Police Court. Several arrests
were made about a month ago and a few
more recently, but they have not yet
been tried, the motions for postpone
ment having been granted. The police,
it is said, are also reluctant to make the
arrests, because the Chinamen are al
lowed to go on bonds by the court and
to take back the cash bail which the po
lice exact. When arrested, the China
men are required to deposit $50 cash for
their appearance in court, and then the
court allows the money to be withdrawn
and bonds to be furnished instead.
These are some of the reasons given for
the failure of the police to suppress the
open sale of Chinese lottery tickets.
An inquiry in Chinatown revealed the
fact that there are at present seven Chi
nese lottery companies, each with two
drawings a day, in full operation in the
city. There are the Foo Tai, Bow Tie.
See Chung, Fook Tai & Co., AVing Lee
Yuen, Ching Chun Wing and one whose
name could not be translated. On a
sign board on Alameda street, near Mar
ch essault street, copies of the
two latest drawings of all these
companies were pasted for the
benelit of all the passers and immedi
ately after a drawing it was surrounded
by a large crowd including Chinese,
negroes and Caucasians, all anxious to
compare their tickets with the drawing
and ascertain whether they had been
A communicative Chinaman stated
that an immense business was done for
each drawing every day and that the
trade was extending at a rapid rate
among the white people. For some time
past the Chinese vegetable peddlers
have carried tickets from house to house
for sale and other Chinamen have estab
lished regular routes over which they
go twice a day. Then the Chinese laun
dries in various parts of the city have
been made agencies and according to the
talkative Chinaman "soon every one buy

Playing Chinese lottery is a very fas
cinating way of gambling. The fact
that as small an amount of money as
ten cents can be invested with a possible
return of about $300 induces a good
many to purchase on the ground that
the losses are not great. Then to those
who like the excitement of gambling,
the drawings twice each day are prefer
able to those which come but once a
month. The drawings generally occur
at 4p. m. and 11 p.m., so that pur
chasers may live continuously in the
hope of gaining a large sum by the in
vestment of a small amount. Unfortun
ately, the gamblers are not limited to
the 10-cent expenditure. A single ticket
in some of the companies can be made
to cost as high as twelve or more dollars,
and it don't take many of these to eat up
the wages of the workingman or the
The tickets are innocent enough look
ing affairs. They are nothing but pieces
of manila paper, 6 inches long by 5
inches wide, on which are printed eighty
Chinese characters. The translation of
these characters would not indicate that
the tickets were lottery tickets. In a
case in San Francisco the translation
was made, and it was found that the
characters represented poetical ideas en
tirely foreign to lotteries or gambling.
These characters were placed on the
ticket for the purpose of evading the law
so as to make a conviction on a charge
of selling lottery tickets an impossi
bility. It was held that if there was
nothing on the ticket to show that it
was a lottery ticket, no conviction could
be obtained. A means was found for
proving that they were lottery tickets,
but the characters remained the same.
There are many ways of marking these
tickets, so many in fact that most of the
principal agencies keep large books in
the Chinese language explaining them
and giving the price. The ordinary man
ner of marking a ticket is what is called
the "straight." The purchaser of the
ticket is allowed to mark ten of the
characters on the ticket for 10 cents, and
if five of them happen to be drawn he
wins 20 cents, six $2, seven $18.75, eight
$92, nine $160, and if all of them draw,
the prize is in the neighborhood of $300.
If twenty cents is paid for the same
ticket the winnings are twice as large,
and so on upward to the limit, which is
different with the different companies.
Some companies fix the limit at $3,000
for the highest prize, while others have
been known to pay $15,000. The
chances of winning the highest prizes
are about as small as they are in the
American lotteries, but the chance of
winning the money invested back is fig
ured by experts to be about one in

block, bearing . characters similar to
those on the tickets. These blocks are
mixed and are drawn out one by one un
til twenty have been spread on a table.
The men conducting the drawing then
punch out the characters on the ticket
represented by the twenty blocks and
the drawing is over. Copies of the
drawing are then sent to each of the
agencies, where the purchasers of tickets
may compare and if lucky draw his
There are other ways of marking a
ticket that are quite common. A
ticket that counts three ways and costs
30 cents, and a ticket that costs CO cents
and counts six ways are the general
favorites. A purchaser may mark every
spot on the ticket and yet may not win
anything, for in such a case the ticket
has to lie divided by lines, so that no
more than live spots can be contained in
The study of the Chinese lottery game
is very interesting, and unless more
active measures are taken to stop its
spread, it is liable to take more money
out of the city than the Chinese could
earn by working on public improve
THE WESTERN BOUNDARY.
Taxpayers Want to Know Where the
City Assessor Fischer has been some
what puzzled to know where the western
boundary line of the city runs. There
are three to five surveys along there,
zigzagging one through the other, so
that confusion is worse confounded. Mr.
Fischer asked for a new survey, but that
motion was not thought good for the
reason that it was likely to make
one more element of confusion. Then
the Assessor went to the City Engineer,
and asked his advice as to what line to
j follow, and was told, so it is understood,
that the line known as the Reynolds
j line is the proper one. This diverges
widely at points from what is known as
the charter boundary, and hence prop
erty heretofore thought to be in the
j country will be assessed for city prop
erty, while some heretofore considered
in the city will be left out in the cold.
The owners can well endure the
Assessor's giving them the go-by, but
I there are other things not so pleasant
! about this outlook.
A Celebration in Progress at St. Yin-
Yesterday at St. Vincent's church the
celebration of the Solemn Triduum, in
honor of "Blessed" John Gabriel Per
hoyre, was commenced. Bishop Mora
conducted the pontifical mass at 10 a.m.,
and Rev. Rooney preached the sermon.
Today Rev. J. Adam, vicar-general, will
conduct a solemn high mass, and to
morrow Bishop O'Connell will officiate
in a pontifical mass. Services, including
vespers, sermon and benediction will be
held each evening.
A Midnight Fire.
At 12:30 o'clock last night an alarm
was turned in from box 02 by Officer
Steele, for a small blaze at the works of
the Los Angeles Electric Company, on
the corner of Alameda and Banning
streets, to which the department re
sponded. The fire, which was confined
to a few rafters in the roof, was speedily
extinguished, and the damage sustained
was very slight. The blaze originated
from the proximity of the boiler to the
wood-work of the roofing, the heat from
the former having caused the ignition of
the rafters. This was the first alarm
that had been turned in for seventeen
consecutive days, and the firemen hailed
it with delight as a relief to the monotony
of their existence.
THE NIGHTINGALE'S CHILDREN.
Hark, a voice that cries and calls.
As the summer twilight falls;
Deep with longing, keen with pain,
Sobbing through the summer rain.
"Wake, wake, wake!
Ere my heavy heart doth break!"
"l'is the bird of silver tongue
Singing summer leaves among,
Calling on her children dead
With the wet leaves overheat 1;
In the living, leafy wood,
Calling on her silent brood,
Ever still and lifeless born
To the nightingale forlorn.
"Wake, wake, wake!
Waken ere my heart doth break!"
Nightingale of golden throat,
Sobbing forth thy silver note;
Were it ours, thy charmed skill,
Might we raise our dead at will,
is there aught we would not give?
Would we leave, so they might live,
Aught unventured. aught unsaid,
Could they wake, the dreams ho.'n dead.

Smelters Close Down.
Chicago, May 4. —A special to the

The cause of the suspension is difficult
to get at, but from what can be learned,
the chief factor in closing down is the ex

point, as compared with rates to Omaha
and other Eastern smelting points.
