In company with a friend Saturday
night, the News prowler after silver-plating
his conscience, made a little investigating
tour for the benefit of suffering
humanity among the gamblers of
Cincinnati. A visit to one den only was
made that of a well-known and popular
ranche on Fifth St. Here, in a large upstairs
room, Over one hundred men were
seated around oblong tables, averaging
from ten to twelve at a table. All ; were
playing a new game entitled "Hog"
poker. The game consists of a dealer
who is employed by the house," who
works as regular and fast as a piece of
machinery. He deals alternately around
the table until each player has five cards.
Each player deposits fifteen cents worth
of chips in the center 6f the table ten
per cent of which the dealer takes as
profits for the house. Afer the dealing
each player calls out his hand, and the
best "pair" or "pairs" .takes the pot:
The game is strictly one of chance,
and tlie dealer proves the hog in the long
run, for it is but a question of, but a few
hours' time, whenihis ten per cent shall
have eaten up the entire proceeds froni
the pockets of those around the tabl'es,
and the men who patronize this nefarious
same have no more -sense than- a hog,
