EDITH SESSIONS TUPPER’6 IMPRES SIONS IN DARKEST SAN FRANCISCO. A Blot Ipon civilization —The Flagaa 5pot of n Groat. City —Tho Chinese Theater- An Infamons Resort—Heathon Characteristics—A Nightmare. [Special Correspondence. 1 San Francisco, Sept. 28.—“If you want to go through Chinatown and see it thor oughly and In all Its phases, got Billy Glennon to take you,” was the advico ten dered me by those who know tho ropes. So I sought Mr. William Glennon, who for ten years was a police ofllccr in China town and who now Is the detective of the Palace hotel. Glonnon is a veritable Beau Brummel in appearance, manner and dress. Ho boasts of having conducted more distinguished visitors through Chinatown than any other policeman in San Frau MURDERERS’ ALLEY. cisco. His watch chain sports a handsome locket given him by Henry Irving as a * aivrnir of the actor's trip, and ladles of all ranks and professions, from Mrs. Har rison to Amelia Hives, have been ills pro tegees on visits to the most picturesque quarter of San Francisco. “Frankly," said he as we made our ar rangements, “there are a lot of catchpenny fakes in Chinatown calculated to delude and rob the tonderfoot. Guides tell tho most amazing stories, which visitors swal low with great gusto. I shall take pleas ure in putting you on to some of these fakes for tho benetlt of tho public.’’ So, really sacrificing myself for tho bene fit of the great American ptiblio, which so loves to lie humbugged, I decided to en dure tho loathsomo features of Chinatown for an evening In order to warn others. An Individual Town. In the first, place, Chinatown Is really a little city by itself, a town swarming und bristling with those weird, curious folks who in ceaselessly running hither and t hit her remind one of nothing so much ns an army of black beetles, hurrying about, disappearing suddenly in the ground and as suddenly liobblng up again. There are 80,000 of these black booties In Chinatown, and every ouo of thorn Is out after night fall. Vou sfop from tho crowded modern American streets of Sun Francisco straight Into n bit of heathendom. The transforma tion is so sudden it feozes you for a timo. Down narrow streets filled with truck sters’ shops, chioken coops, temporary pig pens, fish stalls, wood piles, baskets and dirt you go, holding your nose. The fiare of burning peanut oil on littlo braziers Il luminates the gaudy josshouses.the deafen ing crash of tomtoms und bung of cymbals from tho theaters torment your oars, tho mournful Celestial gibberish everywhere resounds, dark, evil facos glare in yours for an instant and are gono, only to bo re placed by more dark, evil faces—this is Chinatown. These streets center In dismal open courts, reeking in filth and surround ed Iiy rooms scarcely bigger than rutholcs wherein tho blnck beetles burrow. “Chinks” thrive best and liuddlo closest where sunlight cannot come. Many of tho poor wldtoa of San Fran cisco come to buy their meats, poultry and fish of tho Chinese butchers. Hero is an other curious phnso of life. Tho Chinese sell these necessaries cheaper than they can 1)0 bought in tho city. So at night Chinatown is thronged with poorly dressed white people who are buying tomorrow's lucal from the almond oyed folks. fiuito Oriental. The barber shops are never railing sources of amusement. You stand Iiefore them perfectly fascinated by the perform ances going on therein. The sign is a four logged frame, the legs painted green with scarlet knobs on top. Inside, the barbers aro industriously shaving with razors of triangular shape, about two inches long, ail inch wido at oue end, hollow ground and weighing about two ounces. Other artists are applying delicate instruments to the cleansing of the eyelids. The refined proc ess of swubhiug the ears ami pulling hairs out of the nostrils is also in full blast. The walls are decorated with false cues. When a Chinaman is sent to prison, his cue is shaved off. Of course this is a terrible disgr.ico. When he comes out, t he first thing to be done is to get a cue and braid it in with the remains of his former glory. This is the way police officers dis cover jailbirds. In making an arrest they grab at the cue. If it comes off, they know they have a man with a post—a onto way of discovery, in fact. It is a mark of groat disrespect to wear the cue coiled in the presence of superiors. The smartest cue I saw iu Chinatown was on the head of one of the most notorious highbinders in the quarter. It was at the entrance to Ciun Cook alley, or Murderers’ row, where more murders are committed than in any other street iu Chinatown. “Look behind you quickly, ’ ’ whispered the detective. *' There Is ono of the worst characters among the highbinders.’’ I turned and looked at him. He was a dandy, that ono—sleek, trig, jaunty, with wicked, bold eyes, a stare of insolent defiance and a don’t-givo a-d—n air. Ho was exquisitely tidy in his dress, and his pigtail almost touched the ground. He nodded to Glenuon, eyed our party contemptuously aud strutted by like a pompous young peacock. At the Theater. The theater! Ah, there was the ftmi The price of admission varies with the time of entrance. Wo went in about 10 o’clock aud paid “four bits,’’ as they say there, or 50 cents, apiece. Chinamen go In early in the evening for 25 cents and later for 10 cents. If the play stops one minute before midnight, the audience can demand and got its money hack. No women are allowed on the floor of the theater. They sit- in the lioxos, while vis itors go upon the stage and sit with the players. It is certainly a trial for one’s i nerves and risibilities. There aro no cur tains, no ilies, no wings. The musicians sit at the back of the stage with their coats off, keeping up a din with gougs, tomtoms, fiddles and cymbals which is simply in fernal. But fearful as it is, it is as nothing to the yells of tho heavy villain or the shrill squawks of the victimized lierutnc. Tho actors paint their faces in the most frightful fashion. An Apache out for gore would not show such a variety of colors. The whole performance is like a hideous nightmare and funny beyond any expres sion. Tho Chinamen, though, take it very seriously, and the nulv ones who lauahnt] were t ho ho who nudged each other to see me laugh. Any one who likes walks tip front the audience and wanders In and out the dressing rooms at tho back of the stage. Over the stuge is the josshouse of the actors and back of this their living rooms, for they never go out of the theater If they can avoid it. Chinamen have the roost utter .contempt for actors, and If they catch them on the street will tear their clothing.from them and beat thorn until they are-black in the face. “Him ki-tt. Him no good. Him actor man. Him paint him face. Him dless up all same woman,” Is the summary of their 'disdainful opinions of the mummor. Apropos of which, Mr. Glcnoon told me this amusing story of Irving: Among oth er places tho great actor visited was a pawnshop where ho bought a lot of beau tiful Chinese curios, weapons and pipes. While ho was buying he chatted with the Chinese pawnbroker about actors and re ceived his opinion of their worthlossness with a quiet smile. As Irving went up the steps of tho collar shop Glonnon turned to tho pawnbroker and said: “Well, John, you have put your foot In It this time. That is the greatest English speaking actor on earth.” John tore at his cue in horror and wailed: “Him nctormnn? Mo bollevo him minister man. Mo heap d—u foolee.” Halts For the Unwary. The opium joints! Notwithstanding the stringent statutes against this evil, there arc 3,000 “hop heads," or “opium fiends,” In Pan Francisco today and In Chinatown nearly 800 joints. This Is tho greatest evil tliia fair oity has to deal with. A menace anywhore, it Is hero a positive threat. One of the most famous, or infamous, joints Is that kept by “Blind Annie," who is one of the ontohpenny fakos to delude the dimes out of tourists’ pockets. “Blind audio, wttn ner tnousana cats, 19 tne bait wbioli lures the tenderfoot who fan cies he is to behold a marvelous sight. The joint is in a dingy collar reached by a foul alloy. It is a room of about 130 square feet. Thcro is not a bit of ventilation. On a greasy, rotten lied sits tho little old hag fondling her four or th e cats and a mangy, wheezy dog. She is not so blind that she cannot soe Detective Glonnon’s hand os ho holds out a coin, which she eagerly clutches and mumbles over. This joint is frequent ed by whito girls who wish to hit the pipe. There are plenty others, dozens of nasty holes, with tiers of bunks waiting for the victims of the “dope.” In one close, foul room I stood and watched an old, old man, who lookod to bo 100 at least, roll his pill and heat It nt tho nut oil lamp. Around tho room lny men and women in various stages of drunkonness and dishabille. “It was through that window,” whispered Mr. Glennon, “that a woman sprang one night when a raid was made on this joint. I caught her, but could not drag her line It, us she was very heavy. Another officer wont around and took her down outside.” Tho most notorious joint for whites is All King’s on Jackson street. As we came out of the stifling, disgusting room some thing flitted through the gloom boforo us like a ghost—something that turned its face asido as if fearful of being seen—and slunk into n dark corner near a doorway and waited there for us to pass. Even in tho shadow of this black courtyard one could see that this coworing, shivering ob ject was a wreck, a phantom, a terrible thing I There is yet another feature of China town which is quite ns loathsome—the traffic in Chinese women, which goes steadily on in spite of laws against it. These girls are at the bottom of tho many terriblomurdorscommitted in Chinatown. This is the way of it : Thoro is a Cliinose vondettn, organized and curried on as sys tematically as any in Italy. Say that a highbinder, a nioniber of the Loo family, lias a young protty slave who Is worth from $1,000 to $2,500 a year to him; that a member of the Wang family, realizing her commercial value, abducts that girl. The Leo family immediately sets forth nud kills overy member of tho Wang fumily caugiit out on general principles. If any thing Is left of the tribe, it retorts on the Leo family. Tho highbinders use 45 cal iber Colts and carry them lying over their arms. Many of tho fiercest are domestics in service in San Francisco. There are many instances of a Chinaman's commit ting an atrocious murder in Chinatown ami then calmly going to his employer's house to cook breakfast. And a majority of those murders are committed over some handsomo young slave. Honest Labor. Chinamen raise nearly all the vegetables grown in California. They are first class markot gardeners. They are good shoe makers, and many fashionable San Fran cisco women have their shoes made in j Chinatown. They aro splendid cooks and aro very useful ns scullious and are often j employed to do chum her work in hotels. | They will quit domestic service quicker than any other servants known, and they have some secret and mysterious way of ! leaving a record of their dissatisfaction in their rooms for the benefit of their succcs , 'a 1 i K IN AN OPIUM JOINT. ion, thus establishing n boycott difficult to comtmt unless the mistress of the house can discover the warning. They are very ! tenacious of their rights as they under* j stand them. | Their profanity is something appalling. Their oaths and curses are ingenious and novel. They hope that, their enemies may be chopped into mince meat, that they may rot by inches, and ot her choice anath emas. They have perfect- control of their features, rarely laugh or cry, nevor show any affection and have no fear of death. Tliov are induslrioiis, economical and peaceable, nover giving offense in the street. JJ’lioy will lie, but their honesty in deed is-not below t i at of any mercant ile class. They are morally vicious, depraved and clannish to a degree. When ymi have done Chinatown and ■ • emerged at midnight from one of its famous restaurants, you go home wonder ing if, after nlf, it wasn’t a nightmare. And for days you seo tho black beetles scurry teg hither and yon, diving into tho earth, burrowing there, then sticking up their ugly black heads and crawling out again Edith Sessions Tuppew.
