A most Interesting paper on tho
tenement question was rend by Jas.
A. Rath before .the dlvlc Federation
yesterday nttcrncon. Much care and
thought had been exercised In com
piling the statistics with which this
report was replete. It proved ono of
the most interesting and Instructive
papers thai has been read before the
Civic"' Federation during the past
year. At the conclusion, of the read
jlng Mr. Hath'"receivcd the unanimous
.thankB of tho members.
I "Out .of 171 tenement buildings In
vestigated, I found elghty-nlno to ho
In good condition, seventy-two In an
Indifferent state of preservation, nnd
ten- In a poor condition. ,
"It Is in the tenements of this cltyv.
that the great whlto plague Is mak-'
Ing Its greatest ravages, and it Is
these tenements that are responaltrto
for the terrible mortality amongst In
fants. In Merlin, London and Parts
tho city fathers are, just awakening
to the fact thnt the tenement houses
of the poor must be properly, looked
after If sickness Is to he kept -In
check and tho morals ot tho Occu
pants be not "-corrupted b over- "
fcrowdllng." 80 stated Mr. Rath.
in September, 1909, the Civic
Federation of Honolulu Instructed
their committee on education, chari
ties and public health to make a
study ot tho tenements of Honolulu
nnd toward this study appropriated
150. it took some tlmo before a re
liable man could bo secured to col
lect tho Information embodied In
this' report. The amount appropri
ated was far too small to permit of
tho employment of a man who could
give his whole tlmo to the work, and
consequently arrangements had to bo
mndo to have a man give his sparo
time. . '
'There Is no need 'of tenements In
Honolulu. People are most content
ed and live, more healthy and normal
lives In small cottages, especially
where children are concerned.
"The Honolulu tenements socivll
ed are nothing more or less than
Are traps. No tenement or rooming
houso olmoro than one 'story high
should be allowed to be built without
an 'adequate' number of landings nnd
"TJ10 Investigation Includes nil
bulldrngs Waiklkl of Dowsett Lane,
along Llllha street as far as Vine-,
yard, taking in the thickly-populated
tenement region in the heart ot tho
city and those tenements In Kaka
"A large number ot the Honolulu
tenements are built' of wood and are
therefore a great source of danger."
not only from a sanitary standpoint,
but also from Are. v
"No one' who hns lived and work
ed among the p"box. classes ot a com
munity can fall to be convinced of
the dangers, physical and moral, of
tenement life. -,
"Where today Is tho great whlto
plague making Its greatest ravages?'
Where are the babies dying in tho
greatest r numbers? In our tene
ments. The tenement section with
in a half mile radius of King and,
Llllha streets: accounts for 42 'per''
cent, ot all those who die from tu-'
berculosls, outside of Institutions. It
Ihe statistics ot our Institutions
could' be studied they would proba- -
bly tell the same story."
r In reference to the Influence- upon
tho morals of tenement occupants,
by overcrowding, Mr. Rath stated
"As for the Influence of the ten
ements upon the morahTof those who
are forced to live In them, let. all',
thosowho would llUe"io know, sea
for themselves. Decency forbids the
publication of tho facts as they are
