We a full Lino of All kinds a parlor chamber and Kitchen elephants and milk. A Lively Gallop soon brought me twelve Miles on my Way Easterly Over the Hills to the Little Village of like a great Castle on o the Rhine with its two or three Adja cent appurtenances a Large Brick hotel looms up among the few Small houses in its neighbourhood. This seemed disproportionate but my curiosity was particularly attracted by an immense statue of an elephant nearly As Large As mean the life size of a Small elephant of course. This remarkable resemblance to the animal was mounted on a High Post before the door of the hotel and painted Over the front of the building i read in enormous letters Uele Phant it was time to breathe my horse and the ride had Given me an Appe Tite for anything i might find within even if it should prove to be an ele Phant Steak. The landlord observed that the woman folks were not at Home but he guessed he could find he accordingly placed a cold Turkey and a bottle of Lon Don Porter on the table and thus proved that his guess was very Cor rect. As he sat Down by my Side i asked him the meaning of All this elephantine display. He answered Hackaliah Bay Ley built this House Hackal Yih Bavley who was who was Hackaliah Bayley Don t you know he was the Man who imported the first elephant into these United bet of course you have heard of old no i have what never heard of old bet Well sir you Are Well along in life. Where have you been All your Days i told him i had not spent them All in Westchester county. I should think replied the landlord or else you d have heard of Hackaliah Bay Ley Aud old bet. Right Here from this very spot he started the first show in this country. Right round Here is where they Breed and Winter wild animals to this Day. Folks round Here have grown Rich out of Tuc show business. There s men in this town that have been to Asia and Africa to get animals and Bayly s big circus he s old Hacka Liah s son has grown up out from the Small beginning when Hackaliah imported old bet and that was t More than fifty or sixty years ago. Yes sir Hackaliah began on that one she elephant. Lie and a boy were All the company. They trav eled nights and showed daytime. Old bet she knew just How much every Bridge in the country would Bear before she put her foot on it. Bimby they got a Cage of monkeys and carted them along and gradually it got up to bears Lions tigers Cam Els Boa constrictors alligators Tom thumb Hippopotamus is and the fat fact to where it is now. Yes sir p. T. Barnum got the first rudiments of education from Hacka Liah Bavley right Here in Somers town. Elephants and milk have made this town. In fact we All live on elephants and elephants and milk Good i exclaimed what a lord retorted my landlord did you think i meant that we crumbled elephants into milk and ate pm to i mean to say that the elephant business and the milk Busi Ness Are what have built up this place. I be told you what the elephants have done for us and now i la Tell you about milk. There s Farmers round Here owning a Hundred cows apiece. From the Little depot of Purdy s you la pass a mile beyond this we Send four thous and Gallons of milk every Day to new York and it starts from Here pure let me Tell you for we Are honest if we were brought up in the show business. Then right in our neighbourhood Are two condensed milk factories where they use As much More. There s eight thousand Gallons. The Farmers get sixteen cents for it on the spot. So you see there is a Revenue of twelve Hundred Aud eighty dollars a Day to this District. Now you be been telling me of the West How they raise forty bushels of wheat to the acre an Cfall that. Well what does it amount to by the time they get their returns paying All out in Railroad freight you ride along this after noon and it you come Back this Way Tell me if the houses and fixings and things especially the boys and More particularly the gals look any better in them fever und ague diggings than they do Here if we do live on elephants and j co Max. In Magazine for May. Midnight. Fifty saloons and a dozen licensed gambling houses line the principal Street All thronged and gaily illuminated till the morning Sun puts out the lights. What makes Cheyenne the Wick Edest City in the world i. Cheyenne is the Metropolis where the Rich owners and Buckskin Clad Drivers of five million dollars Worth of Cuttle rendezvous for a weekly spree. Ii. It is the nearest Point where the Black Hillers can sell their Gold dust and nuggets and then Gamble and spree away the proceeds so As to go Back to the mines. Iii. It is the Point to which All the Indian fighting army officers come As a place where they can spree away a Hundred dollars in a night and make up for lost time on the High Horn. In. It is the stopping Point for All the swell de Minond from san Francisco St. Louis and Chicago. In a word it is the american Para Dise for licensed drinking fighting gambling walk with me into one licensed House on the principal Street of Cheyenne at 8 o clock in the morn ing. The House is a it is the parisian varieties on sixteenth Street John Morrissey s Saratoga gambling House the Argyle rooms on sixth Avenue and the Alhambra with its fifty waiter girls in London All crowded into one. The building is perhaps 50 by 130 feet and two stories High. On the ground floor is a theater stage room for three Hundred cow Boj a soldiers ranch men and waiter girls and just out of it Are the gambling tables and bars. At the tables every known game is played. Among the dealers Are several French women dressed in Silks and diamonds. Utterly devoid of delicacy they shuttle Aud Deal the cards and handle the chips for the swearing drinking crowd that throng around the tables. On the stage there is a constant variety show going on. Skilful variety actors Are employed and there the tight rope walkers the Soest and dance women in tights a the Low necked Ballad Singer the clog dancer the negro minstrel the Model artists Aud the female bathers come out in a continuous Stream from ten at night till morning. O on the first floor every drink is 25 cents and about thirty English French and american waiter girls keep the crowd constantly drinking. Above this Motley crowd of cow boys ranch men Black Hills freight ers miners and soldiers is a Row of private boxes filled with Rich ranch men officers tourists and Fellows who have come Down with Gold dust from the Black Hills. These boxes All communicate with the stage. O Twenty or thirty waiter girls Supply the boxes with Champagne the Price of which is for pint bottles. All drinks in the boxes Are 50 cents. It is a common thing for a Rich ranch Man after Selling a thousand cattle to come Here and spend on a spree. A colonel in the army who had been fighting up in the Horn v-3 x a country came in the other evening and spent Aud finally left his watch on the red and lost that too. The proprietor of this gambling and variety Saloon is a very generous Man. Everybody likes him and he is considered a Good citizen in Chey Enne. Clergymen shake him by the hand and Bankers chum with him like an old schoolmate. The profits in the one building arc per Day. I suppose there a dozen houses on one Block where gambling goes on Day and night with open doors. Sometimes the marshal Aud the policeman take a hand. The judge goes out and Bucks the Tiger while the jury Are agreeing on a verdict. You will Sec colonels in the army standing by private soldiers and Sec cow boys in Buckskin dividing the chips with a Cheyenne in the most enterprising Border town in America and the wickedest City in the world.
