PRESENTS FOR CHILDREN.
THEIR VALUE DEMONSTRATED
Hone Method of Flashing: Asphalt
Found by Other Cities to Be Too
Costly Problem of Removal of lee
ana Snow Can Be Solved by the
tie of Eighteen Machines.
The purchase of enough additional flush
ing machines to make possible the wash
ing of ail streets in Washington will
probably be made the subject of a special
communication from James M. Wood, su
perintendent of street cleaning, to the
Commissioners within the next few days.
The efficiency of these machines in
placing streets covered with snow, ice, and
mud into a passable condition has been
well demonstrated within the last few
davs, and Supt. Wood believes the street-
cleaning problem will be solved by their
use throughout the year.
Made Bis; Cleaa-np.
Working upon that section lying be
tween Fifteenth street, Pennsylvania ave
ue. Twentieth street, and Massachusetts
avenue, three of tbe flushing machines
one day last week effectively cleaned
;t",000 square yards of pavement. This
did not include the entire removal of ice
banks at corners, but did entirely re
move the loose snow and mud which was
accumulated in places to a depth of three
and four inches.
Investigation in tho use of the ma
chines in other cities has brought the
subject of their adoption here more
forcibly before the authorities. The
hose methods of Hushing the streets,
tried here in the attempt of the past
few days to clean up the streets, has
been found by other cities to be too
expensive. Figures compiled b the
street cleaning department here show
that the hose method, with thirty-one
men at work, cleaned but 43.76S square
ards in one da v. .is eontra&tcd with
the 24".. 000 square ards of the three
Hushing machines, w Inch took but six
muu to operate.
Will Demonstrate aIoe.
While it is- admitted by the Mrect
cleaning department that weather condi
tions in Washington arc such as to pre
clude tho use of the flushing machines
continually throughout the year, it is jet
held that one year's trial will more than
demonstrate their value.
In light of the recent criticism thdt has
been directed toward the street clean
ing officials on the condition of tho
streets, it is probable that the purchase

William II. Taft. disciple of iiuorniality.
walked oer to the Press Club jestcnUy
afternoon from the White Houte to join
the newspaper men in their annual New
Year" j Ee celebration. With him cams
his brother. Charls P. Taft, Nicholas
Longworth, and Capt. Archie Butt. All
joined for an intimate half hour with the
men who send the news of Washington
out over tt" wires, and although tho
President was not this time attired in
sweater and cordurovs. as at his visit last
j ear, he was as informal as ecr.
The President receKed an enthusiastic
reception, and twice during the little talk
he gae the journalists tire' applause was
so great that he was forced to pause for
, TafCs Remarks.
The President said, in part:
"I presume the craft of newspaper men
Is not rich, to speak- moderately, but cer
tainly thf benefit to be derlcl by the
members of the press from such a club
as this can hardly be overstated. There
are no men more clubable than members
of the press.
"I am in faor of clubs, but I always
think that clubs are belter if they have
an addition to them which permits the
wives of members to come in and run up
bills. It brings horn to one the necessity
for a little moderation in the use of that
part of the club that is expensive, and
it Introduces into the family a belief that
life is a partnership, after all.
"And, therefore, I commend to jou as
the members of this club the making of
plans for bringing into it those ladies who
ought to govern your lies, and I have
no doubt In most cases, if your experi
ence Is mine, do.
"But I came here for a ery informal
evening, gentlemen. I did not como
charged with the feeling that comes to a
man who is to be subjected to a 'roast
at the Gridiron Club. I did not even
make that preparation that one who has
attended such dinners is in the habit of
making; that is, of confessing himself
with respect to all his sins, and being
prepared to admit them to a very kindly
"Thoso who come before the press men
for the first time are in the habit of cith
er praising the press and its Influence or
bowing before it. or of taking the oppor
tunity to indicate how it might be im
proved. I have had so much experience
in this matter that I am going to take
neither course, for I have failed in both.
"I believe press men are like all other
men of intelligence and education in the
country. There are leaders: there are
men of conscience, and mep who are not
greatly burdened with it in the paofes
sion. The profession is like all other
professions like the profession of the
law and the ministry and medicine. You
are proud of a great many of them
Some of them you arc not proud of.
"What I wish to emphasize is that
there is no characterization that you can
make of press men different from that
which you make of all professions in
which a great majority are gentlemen,
and there arc romc that you would be
glad to have left out of this profession,
as of others.
"Now, gentlemen, I thank you sincere
ly for your welcome; I hope that the
coming year will be full of happiness for
you all. I do not know that that wish
can come true, because happiness for
some of you will be soirow for others.
"Vou are engaged in competition, as
wc all are, but I sincerely hope that
the next year will be full of prosperity
and, as much happiness as can come to
all of us In this country.
Retaras Home en Foot. J
Following tiie conclusion of Mr. Tatt's
New 'Tear greeting, afternoon tea was
served. The President, with his brother.
and Albert C. Robinson, an old-time
newspaper man who was with the Presi
dent in Cuba, formed a chatty group at
one end of the assembly room, while
Nicholas Longworth, Willis Abbot, and
Cape Butt formed one of many others.
Mr. Taft and Mr. Robinson talked aver
Old time on the Island, and there was
a ok- in tausnier wnen sone one aak)
if he could not h.itc sent a baseball
team to Cuba that would hae done bet
ter than the Tigers.
The reception broke up with the Prcsi
dint shaking hands with the newspaper
men, wishing them a happy New Year,
and greater success for the future. Mr.
Taft left the club shortly before 6 o'clock,
returning to the White House on foot.

and his po--t is coveted by many of
