letter from A Chase Co 20th Kansas dated September 30 1S93: "Last night just after supper a guide from Chinatown came out to camp and got np a crowd and we went through China town It ia the most' interesting place I have seen since I have been here and I would not have miss 3d seeing it for- anything Will Tozier and I with three or four others from our company went and altogether we had fifteen men without the guide Our guide is a white man' and ia licensed We got well ino China town and struck for a joss house or place of worship We had a hard time getting In' for they do not let any foreigners in there at aU It ia fine and I had no idea it would be so grand The carvings are magnificent Their idols and images are made out of the finest material Our guide told us all about what the different idols and images meant We were Watched very closely all the time After We got out of there we went through 'some of the narrowest little streets and so dirty and bad smelling The Chinese were thick I tell you and our guide said that in these narrow streets is where so many crimes 1 are committed and I believe it for it Is an nwful place and just such a place as' a man would pick out for such deeds On all aides were little dark1 narrow passage ways and I tell yon the odor was terrible From there we went into an opium -dan and weiav' them' fill and 'smoke their pipes The smoke from opiun has a disagreeable odor and seems to stay on your clothes a long time They were all lying on a mat or bed and they were smoking and sleeping all tbe time Lota of them smoke 81-50 worth of opinm a day so the guide said and all smoke as long as their money holds out They are all beggars and it waa hard to get out of the den without giving them something We went Into a Chinese jewelry stare and saw them make rings and carve ont different things I tell yon they are jewelers for yon They do alt tficir work by hand r-We went down a little farther and eame to a Chinese theatre We started np to go in and they drove us hack We went around to a side door and by each of na throwing in some money we finally got inside My! but they were packed in there and the play waa the funniest thing The curtain never went down at all and all they would do' Would be to come out and make a lot of gestures and yell as 'hard as they eopld and then the -orchestra (I 'guess that is what they call it) would start np and the noise waa terribfp: I- do not know what they had hut sounded like a lot of tin pans eing pounded and there waa hot a bit mofe miulc j'to1 it wo had seen all we wanted of that-we went down still farther and went underground It was just awful in there We went through two passage ways about 80 feet long and in those two passages lived 400 Chinese and lota of them were smoking opinm-and I tell yon I wee glad to get out The Chinamen did not seem to like our being in there at all bat they did not molest ns in any way I would not go where we did -without a guide or a good crowd for anything on earth We were getting very tired so we started hack and saw a Chinese leper on the way We went into a house where a little -fellow three years old painted for a llvlng for himself and his mother ne was a dandy for such a little fellow We went into a restaurant on our way back and saw the Chinese eat with their chop sticks- When we got home it waa morning but I would not have missed seeing China town while I was here We know anything more about going away The papers still say we will go but the boys do not seem to think we will Republican Meeting Hon Stanley the next
