DESTITUTION AMONG THE POOIl.
"What Ittanacor Km cry of tlio Associated
CharltloH Has to Say.
Of late complaints havo been pouring into
pollco headquarters and tho health depart
ment that there Is great destitution among tho
deserving poor. Somo of tho cases reported
are truly pitiable. Tho policemen aro doing
all they can, by personal appeals to tho chari
table, to relievo the distress. The police chari
table fund, always limited In amount, 'has
been exhausted, but cltlzons of moans have
nobly responded. An item In relation to this
matter which appeared in one of tho daily
papers on Friday stated that it was better for
tho charitable people to send money and so on
directly to police headquarters, as every dollar
contributed went directly to tho beneficiaries,
whereas tho principal charity organization of
tho District took about $3 tot expenses for
tivcry dollar that went.to tho poor.
A reporter of Tun Hkhald called tho at
tention of Mr. L. S. Emery, manager of tho
Associated Charities, to tho article In question.
Said Mr. Emery: "Tho slur,'whlch I suppose
is aimed at tho Associated Charities, is unkind
and uncalled.for. Wo havo attended to f r6m
twenty to sixty-nine cases a day, and over
eleven thousand cades of alleged, destitution
during tho year. Wo have spent or given out
in kind And money over $8,000, during the
past year at a cost bf nbout $1,200. Of courso
wo must'hato anofllc6, and for that wo.pay $22
per month. Adding to that clerk hire, gas,
and caro of the office, it brings tho expenses
up to $10n per month. Then, again, wo act
as a sort of Intelligence office in the exam
ination of reported cases of destitution, and
I know that wo have saved our charitably in
clined citizens much 'mora than our neces
sary expenses amount to .by them from beipg
duped by, unworthy persons prevontlrig.M
"What causes the destitution at this season
of tho year, when there ought to bo plenty of
work for all ?"
"It is my experience that tho destitution in
summer and spring Is fully as great as in tho
winter. Tho suffering from want of coal and.
warmth In winter is fully offset by tho in
crease of sickness in the spring and summer.
There aro always hundreds of families among
us who aro physically unable to work, oven
when work is plenty. These must bo cared for.
"And I want you to say, in justice to this
office, that itemized accounts are rendered
monthly to tho trustees and directors of the
Associated Charities and they have expressed
their surprise frequently that the business of
the organization has been carried on at so
small an expense."

A NEW FIRM.
MessTS. Spear & Videtto Open a Woll-
i quipped Real Estate Oftlce.
Messrs. Spear & Videtto, 610 F street north
west, have opened one of the best equipped
real estate offices in Washington. Talking
with a Herald "eporter, Mr. Videtto said that
he was of the opinion that, although Wash-'
lngton was well supplied with real estate
brokers, there seemed, with the necessary
push, plenty of room- for their new firm.
Washington had merits and trade forces of
vast-intrinsic value, exceptional to that of any
city in this country. As the seat, of Govern
ment of this great Republic, as a political
centre, as a natural destined educational
centre, and a charming Bpot for resident
houses such aro the resources- of Washington
and the direct causes of the wonderful: ad
vance made in all channels of trade and
realty. Such causes for advancement aro
materially different from those of our cities of
commerce and manufacturing enterprises.
The laws of trade that reverse the channels of
commerce in our commercial cities have no
effect on tho resources and volume of trade
and rising values in realty in Washington.
Real estate is, high, as a result of speculation,
to a great extent, but tho home-seeker may
do as well to invest now as he ever expects to.
It is becoming popular omongour citizens of
moderate means to own a little home, and the'
desire is rapidly being put into force, as will
be seen by the building of hundreds of
medium-sized bouses in the city, nearly all
bolng occupied, as soon as completed. Wo
shalfmakothis. class of property a spebtalty.
Our list of property for sale is varied, both in
tho city and suburbs.
' "Our trade, however,, Is not limited, to Wash
ington. We have an office full of business in
that great trado centre,. Duluth, Mien., Nos.
109 and 110 Chamber of Commerce, 'over
which Mr. L. W. Spear presides, and who on
joys a wide, acquaintance and extensive busi
ness in those twin, cities, Duluth-Superlor.
We havo an extensive list of property there
under our contract, and . havp invested large
sums of money for Eastern . people seeking
safe, and profitable investments. We have for
sale $100,000 of 7 apd per cent., mortgages
based on a 40 per cent, valuation on improved
and unimproved city property. These mort
gages run one and two years, Interest payable
semi-annually, and aro secured by first-class
property, certified titles, and reliable lndors
ers. Tho marvelous progress mado by tho
twin city, Duluth-Superlor, owes Its present
activity and prominence to that geographical
fact, than which there Is no greater on tho
continent, that they are the last possible great
marine city in tho interior of North America.
The map of tho United States itself showed
long ago that as soon as tho Northwestern
prairies wdre tilled and the rich iron mines of
tho Vermillion range opened, tho millions of
acres of virgin forests loveled, their surplus
Eroducts would seek tho markets of the world
y the great water route of the Great Lakes,
Tho same laws of trade that created Chicago
at the head of Lake Michigan are creating
these now cities, Duluth and Superior, at the
headwaters of Lako Superior. In 1889, ac
cording to Gen. Poe's report, thojrelatlvo cost
of transportation on rati and water stood in
proportion as 183 is to 811 in favor of water.
"Over $102,000,000 value of commerce passed
tho gates of tho Soo Canal, the outlet or Lako
Superior, in 1891, a greater amount by mil
lions than cleared the gates of tho world's
canal, the Suez. These items go to make up
the elements of a commercial city, in the same
of which Duluth and Superior are rich. We
solicit a share of the public's patronage, and
promise In return careful consideration of the
Interests of ourclients and prompt transaction
of business. "
