CAIRO'S GAMBLING HOUSES.
It is a fact not generally known that at
the present time gamblers, nged and youth
ful, experienced and inexperienced, are
holding high carnival in our citf. This is
the gambling season of the year the time
when the windows of the gambling rooms
mn7bok(,Ptcl0!!ca wit,lout 8acrilko of
Labors than out. But while these causes
tend to ini-rouse gambling during the win
ter montii9, we may truly say that tno
amount of gambling indulged in
this winter exceeds that of any previous
season in the history of Cairo.
To accommodate the extra largo number
of gamblers, a number of a new gambling
concerns have lately sprung up, both public
and private, in various parts of the city
and are nightly crowded by men of all
characters, colors, trades ami professions
A few days ago wo chronicled the fact
that a young man, whoso naiuo was with
held from the public, had lost fifty dollars
at the gambling table. It was all the
money he had and being young in tho vice
mid not accustomed to so great
a loss in one night, he
"squealed," as the gamblers say, am
hence tho matter reached tho ears of tho
public. News of four similar cases have
recently conic to us in an indirect manner
a manner that would not warrant their
publication, but emnigh is known to war
rant us in urging the adoption of vigorous
measures for the suppression of some of
the numerous dens, a few of which we will
take pleasure in pointing out for the benefit
of those who arc interested in their where
abouts and suppression.
Among the old houses which are in full
operation, we may mention that of Bill
Scott, below Fifth street, and that of
French Axlcy, on the corner of Eighth and
Commercial. Owing to the fact that sev
eral raids have recently been made on the
house of the latter during the night, Mr.
A xley has changed the hours lor carrying
on tiie nctarious business to tne alter
noon and evening, and permits but little
nbling at night. But besides these sev
eral houses have sprung up on Commercial
avenue, between Fifth and Sixth streets,
which are principally frequented by negroes
who during the entire night sit at card
tables in tho back rooms and win or loose.
undisturbed by any fear of
interruption. Another new concern of a
similar character, is that in the second
story of the building adjoining the council
chamber. The room contains a billiard
table which is intended to deceive the
officers of the law, but the numerous card
tables and gambler's devices there to be
found, is a sufficient evidence that the
gamblers frequent there. In this connec
tion wc may say that a few days ago one
of our numerous negro politicians inform
ed U3 that Mayor Thistlewood was becom
ing very unpopular with the influential
negros ot this city, and upon inquiring for
the cause of this, he replied, that
the mayor did not sufficiently
mind his own business The
other night lie, accompanied by another
man, had conic to the door of tho above
mentioned room and knocked tor admit
tance. The door was slightly opened when
the mayor placing his foot against the bot
tom of it had shoved it open with considera
ble force, and rushed into the room with
the expectation of finding the men engsged
in gambling, "but," said the negro politi
cian, "ho was badly left and seeing that lie
was fooled, commenced shaking hands with
the crowd, stating that, while passing, the
idea had occurred to him that ho would
pay U3 a visit. But you
bet wo all knew tho object of his visit he
has paid other respectablo halls similiar
visits with no other object than to obtain
evidence that would eiiablo him to prose
cute the proprietors and he lost friends by
it." We riray hero state that this very hall,
atlhough conducted by negroes, and
although negroes frequent it, is the
resort for many of the clerks employed in
our business houses, who, if they arc not
already stealing money from their em
ployers to pay their losses, will eventually
bo led thereto by their present practices.
Day before yesterday we mentioned the
fact that tho agent ol this house had been
arrested and fined for conducting a gain
bling house, and that the pro
prietor had left for parts unknown. But
tho fining of the first-named the departure
of the other ling not interrupted tho oper
alions of jtlio house, and young men are

Recently ono ol our saloon keepers, who
keeps an orderly house, called us into his
Baloon, Haying, "I have something to tell
you." Wo listened patiently to ids story
which was the following: "Tho night bo
fore," ho said, "a stranger, well dressed
and ot gentlemanly nppoaranco had como
into his saloon and begged tor a drink of
whisky. The man was aotnewhat under
tho inllunnco of liquor and his curiosity

was situated on a corner. The next day
we enquired into the matter, but the police
had not heard of the occurrence and tho
stranger was nowhere to be found. Be
lieving that probably there was no truth iu
the story we paid no further attention to it,
but a few days ago learned that the watch
had been lost iu a building o.ie block dis
tant from the rooms of French Axley
where, it is said, gambling is continuously
Simultaneously with the arrival ot the
laborers who are Employed on the new
elevator, several uptown saloons have been
turned into gambling houses. Here, after
their day's toil, the laborers gather by the
dozen and drink and smoke and curse and
gamble until early in tho morning, when
they sullenly return to their work.
But wc have space for only a few words
more. VU'iimrht mention the names ot
hotels in which this vice is privately
practiced by guests of the homes; we
might mention the nanus of men who,
although occupying places in genteel
society, burn the midnight oil over the
card-tiblc in their private apartments and
allure their friends to ruin. They arc men
of easy and agreeable manners, seen on our
streets every day. Witlu!, th"y are suf
ficiently circumspect and secretive of tin ir
course, to maintain a place in genteel
society; for that is a luxury. They nre not
gluttons, but choice eaters. They arc not
gross drinkers, only gentlemanly consumers
of a very curious compound of liquor. They
have traveled; they can tell you which, in
every city, is tho best bar, the best restau
rant, the best table. They know every
theatre, each actor; particularly arc they
well versed in the select morsels of th
scandulous indulgence peculiar to
each other. They know every
history of all the famous matches, amPHie
pedigree of every distinguished horse.
They can tell you, who gambles, when, lor
what sums, and with what fate; who is im
pure, who was, who is suspected, who is
not suspected but who ought to be. Tho
jingle of their coin may be heard from
the second story window as upon a quiet
evening you pass along the walk, and their
cry of "keno," often interrupts our police
olliccrs while telling stories and laxity
teatcring themselves on chairs in front
of the police headquarters. But what can
tho officers do to remedy tho evil? Very
little. They can hear tho jingle of the
chips and flic exultant cry of tho winners,
jut can MiE nothing. They aro probably
willing but weak, and can do but little
towards breaking up a gambling den un-
ess one of tho players "squeals" as did the
boy in Judge Olmsted's court a few days
ago, who had lost two weeks1 wages in the
course of a few hours and whoso father,
tearing ot his son's loss, forced him to an
admission of the tacts in the court.
Unfortunately almost all tho gambling
now dono in tho city is done by homo-men
principally young men young men w ho
are just old enough to bo ashamed of their
parents, and old enough not to know
what they think they know.
f their older comrades in crime tempt them
n to sinks of intamy where a league of
sharpers indirectly rob them of their pos
sessions aud tho money of their employers,
tho still-born laws against vlco aro not
outraged. Tho story ppreads, tho sharpen
move abroad unharmed, no ono stirs. It is
tho day's conversation; ami liko a sound it
rolls to tho distance, nnd dies in an echo.
But let a perishing, hungry wroteh rob them
of their purso with but a single dollar
and tho whnlo town awakes; tho officers
aro alert and bring tho trembling culprit
to stow him in tho Jail. But a worse thief
may meet them, decny their steps, aud by a
greater dishonesty, filch ten thousand dol
lars nud what then? Nothing.
