A NIGHT WITH GAMBLERS.
Beminiscences of a Visit to the
City of Mexico.
In the year 1859 I was sojourning
temporarily in the city of Mexico,
and having nearly a month of
leisure, after satisfactorily winding
up the business matters that drove
me thither, I devoted a portion of
it to "ixploring the darker portion
of the metropolis, meeting with
s-ome curious adventures, making a
few strange acquaintances. One of
the last was a middle-aged man,
witli whom l nrst spoke, one after
noon, at a bull-fight in Necatilan
A strong feeling of friendship
speedily sprang up between us, and
with Don Jaime Meruado as he in
troduced himself as guide, I had
little difficulty in finding means of
passing away the time. And with
him as companion one night I
found myself cautiously treading
the Callejon del Argo, or "Blind
alley of the Arcade,'.' long notori
ous as one of the most dangerous
places in tne .Mexican Capital. The
dene ma-ss of houses, of which the
Merchants' Arcade forms a part,
known as the Impedradillo, does
not form one compact street. On
the houthwotern .side of the Cathe
dral a narrow lane runs into the
Impedradillo ; this is called the Cal
lejon del Arco. It is like one of
tho:e caverns which the sea some
times hollows out in the face of a
Even in the day time, when the
sun's rays pouring down uj)on the
Hquarc arc almost blinding, this
alley is dark, gloomy, forbidding.
Advance within it, though only a
few paces, and you seem precipita
ted into the shades of night. An
involuntary chill creeps over you,
by no means lessened as youcatch
a glimpse of a shadowy figure lurk
ing in an archway, closely shroud
ed in cloak and sombrero, the black
evil eyes watching your every mo
tion. Then there is an unhealthy
dampness around you ; water is con
stantly oozing out of the walls ; un
der foot it is wet and slimy ; almost
unconsciously comes tho terrible
fancy that one is treading in the
gore of the countless victims whoso
lives have ended here.
Yet through this alley Don Jaime
Mercado guided me he with drawn
sword, I with cocked revolver.
Three several times we closely hug
ged the mildewed walN, our wea
pons pointing outward, to await
the passing of some suspicious char
acter. Either these gentlemen were
wronged by our suspicions, or else
they did not like cold steel or hot
lead, siuce they quietly passed us
by, though edging close to the fur
At length Djii Jaimo paused be
fore a heavily ironed door, striking
three loud blows upon it with the
pommel of his sword. Almost im
mediately this opened, and a porter,
bearing a lantern, held the light up
to our faces, Evidently satisfied,
lie rapped a signal upon the door
behind him, which also promptly
This revealed a long, steep flight
of stairs, up which we tramped.
Here a serge curtain, surmounted
by a transparency bearing the le
gend, ."Sociedad I'ilarmonica,"
swung noiselessly aside, and we
were in one of the most fashionable
gambling hells in the city of Mexi
co. For a minute the brilliant light
dazzled me, and I could distinguish
nothing eLse than a low, indistinct
hum, mingled with the click of the
roulette balls, and the more musical
jingle of golden coin.
Tb.e hall was of extraordinary (U
mensjons, lighted by hundreds of
wax tapers. Two dozen long, green
baizo-covered tables were surroun
ded by the eager devotees of for
tune; this much I saw, then was in
troduced to the proprietor of the
hall, a dapper little Frenchman,
whose name I have forgotten.
He was extremely polite and at
tentive, leading as to the elegantly-fitted-up
sideboard, pressing us to
partake of the sparkling wines and
luscious fruit. Ho soon left us, how
ever, to greet some other visitors,
and then we joined the crowd
around one of the tables.
It was devoted to rouge ct noir,
with its olrplps qf devotees, who
came night after night to tempt for
tune, one moment tingling with a
wild, delicious joy as the fickle flame
deigns to smile upon them, the next
plunged into the depths of despair
as the crouner's rake transfers the
glittering offering to the wrong side
of the table.
"See," whispered Don Jaime into
my ear, "observe that the lady in
black, she with the lace mask, who
places her Jittle pile on the red
'double zero' with such a queenly
air. That is Senora de los D .
Ten months since she was the idol
of her husband, who ossessed al
most princely wealth, but the mania
seized her. She visited the tables
nightly, losing enormously, giving
orders upon her husband for the
amounts, which were gladly taken,
for Don J) , everybody knew,
would sacrifioe his last tbaco rather
than dishonor his name by refusing
payment. Her husband soon dis
covered the truth and paid her
debts, but there was a stormy scene
between them, it is said, and two
days afterward he was found dead
in the street, slain by the stroke of a
cuchillo in the hands of a hired
bravo. The truth is not known for
certain, but many believe that she
paid for the murder. Since then
she has been a nightly visitor here,
losing almost constantly. The last
of her husband's property is sold,
and when that Is coue -well, sho
has a clroice, to be sure the suicide's
grave, or the pave."
At the next table a Californian of
swart features and sinister aspect,
not lessened by the strips of court
plaster that diagonally cross his face
from eye to jawbone, deals monte
for tho""benefit" of the moths who
flutter around the golden piles in
momentary expectation of raising
them first into their pockets ; but,
alas! though riches have wings,
thej' do not fly lu that direction.
The low cries "Caballo enlapuer
ta!" Soto mozo!" at Intervals, an
nounce in set phrase the progress of
the game, Tho golden stakes are
transferred from hand to hand, their
sharp, motallo cliok contrasting
with the sott, rapid shulllo of tho
cards. But then tho betting almost
ceael, when a man pushed himself
forward and seated himself in front
of the benches. Avhile a servant de
posited an iron box before his mas
ter. "When the lid was thrown back
a glittering mass of onzas appeared,
causing even the imperturbable
dealer to start with wonder and a.
glance of joy to flit across his face
two things that had not occurred
before within tho memory of man,
Tho stranger played heavily, for
the bank had no limit, and in loss
than an hour the banker slowly ut
tered: "Gentlemen, this bank Is
closed!" The stranger ordered his
servant to gather up the gold, then
scattered a handful of ouneesamong
the crowd, vanished amid the eon
fusion, and by this maneuver esca
ping a probable blow from a cuchil
lo in the alley without.
"That man Is an enigma," mut
tered Don Jaime, with a long drawn
breath. "Tills is the third time that
1 have witnessed the same thing;
each time he broke the bank and
then vanished, just how nobody
could tell, though T have heard that
the best cuchillo in Mexico has been
hunting for him this past month.
No one knows who he is, where he
came from, nor where he lives.
Some even say that he isthedevil."
And here the superstitious Spaniard
devoutly crossed himself. "But let
him be what he may, I wish he
would impart his secret to me."
Around the adjoining table the
faro players were gathered, where a
smooth, oily, cat-like Southerner
dealt, a huge bowie, with a ten inch
blade, sticking in the table before
him. Shuffling the cards he placed
them in the silver box; then, while
waiting for the players to make
their game, he said, tapping the
silver hilt of his bowie:
" Gentlemen, you see this ? I
play on the square, and I warn you
all that the first man I catch trying
to confuse the stakes will have his
hand pinned to the table !"
As no remarks followed that blunt
statement, one would infer that
such a trick as "confusing the
9takes " by suddenly shifting from a
losing card the money staked there
on was not entirely unknown. AYe
watched the deal nearly out, when,
improbable as it may seem, a seedy
looking " greaser" suddenly shifted
his stake, his quick eye detecting
the losing card ere it wasfairly un
covered. Thud ! went the knife as swift as
the lightning's flash, true to the eye
as Kit Carson's long "Harkins,"
and the greaser's hand was pinned
to the table! Instantly all was
confusion around the table, each
man instinctively shrinking back as
the glittering blade flashed before
his eyes, while with a single sharp
yell 6f pain, the greaser bent over
the gold-laden table.
His pain must have been intense;
for the broad blade had penetrated
through the back of his hand; sev
ering one or more of the bones, fas
tening his palm upon the trifling
stake he had wished so much to
cover. And yet, as I stood at the
end of the table, I distinctly saw
the rascal slip his left hand beneath
his body and clutch a handful of
the golden ounces from the pile of
his next neighbor, then drop them
unpercelved down his wide boot
leg ! The sharp jingle of the coins
he deadened by another shriek and
a long-winded volley of all the
curses In his vocabulary, which
would have put to the blush the old
est "bull-whacker of prairie freight
The dealer "politely cursed" the
Greaser for a few moments, then
withdrew his bowie, wiping it upon
the man's blanket, then calmly re
sumed the interrupted game. The
Greaser, snapping up his hand,
stole silently away, no doubt think
ing his wound paid for by his adroit
I had leen watching a young
man, a casual acquaintance, whom
I knew was a junior partner in a
New Orleans firm. He was playing
heavily, and kept calling for liquor,
which the obsequious waiters
promptly supplied. I would have
spoken to him, but Don Jaime re
strained me, pointing to the cocked
revolver lying before the man. And
I did not care to risk a shot cer
tainly an insult by making
an effort to drag the young man
away from the table.
Every deal seemed to &o dead
against young Cleveland, and then,
when but one more turn remained
In the box, he flung a large pocket
book on the table, muttering hoarse
ly: "It's neck or nothing if that
lof.es, then I'll"
He did not finish tlio sentence,
but leaned forward, watching the
turn with bated breath, pale as a
corpse, and then tho tray fell upon
the losing side!
Scarcely was the result percepti
ble than the room rang with a pis
tol shot, and Cleveland sank for
ward, his head resting upon the
pocket-book, his brains and blood
bespattering allaround him. Silence
and death came at the same breath.
Shuddering, heartsick, I left the
hell, nor has my foot pvpr orossed
the tbresliojd of a gambling, hell
since that night.
