Gambling In Full Swing
Wongs story follows in part
Wherever the Chinese go they take
their bad habits with them In Hop al
ley the Chinatown of this city there
were 40 gambling tables in operation
Saturday evening when the laundry
men put off their weeks work and spent
their weeks earnings
In most of the rooms on Eighth
street where Chinese were gathered
there were opium utensils either for the
roomers themselves or for those who
went to visit them
At the gambling tables about 25000
changed hands in one evening I was
told Fan tan and Pai kan were the
games played
In the fan tan game the proprietor
holds a number of buttons in a cup
Those who wish to bet put a sum of
money on a corner of a square board
Each of the four corners on the board
represents a number from one to four
After the players have put their money
on the place or number they want to
play the proprietor divides the buttons
into lots of four each in the presence
of the players If three buttons remain
the players on the third corner win the
amount they wagered If only one but
ton remains the first corner wins

smoker are a pipe in which the well
cooked opium is placed a lamp for cook
ing opium a needle about seven inches
