    Take me in the smoker now

    They are now in a coach, a long-distance bus, and the two guys are handcuffed, by smoker, did he mean a smoking seat on the bus or any room at the bus stop? Do they have any smoking seats available on the coach?

    Hearts and Hands by O. Henry

    "Say, Mr. Marshal," growled the glum-faced man. "This isn't quite fair. I'm needing a drink, and haven't had a smoke all day. Haven't you talked long enough? Take me in the smoker now, won't you? I'm half dead for a pipe."
    The bound travelers rose to their feet, Easton with the same slow smile on his face.

    Re: Take me in the smoker now

    It means an area where smoking is allowed. When I was a child, smoking was allowed in some areas of buses- the back or upstairs.
