Purchase of Property by Govern
ment Said to Be the Only
In a determined effort to abolish the
slums of Washington, which. It Is claim
ed. Increase the annual death rate of(the
city by many per cent, and tend to In
crease Immorality In the Capital, three
welfare societies have Joined, and pro
pose to urge Congressional legislation
toward cleaning up these pest spots.
The Monday Evening Club, Associated
Charities, and Women's Welfare Depart
ment of the National Civic Federation
plan to appoint a Joint committee, which
will urge upon Congress the Investiga
tion of the slums of this city in an ef
fort to have the Federal government
turn the alleys Into minor streets, or
abolish them altogether.
According to statistics compiled by
these organizations, there are 173 alleys
In Washington. 161 of which are In the
Northwest. There are 1337 houses In
these alleys and an estimated population
of 16,000. The alleys, of course, princi
pally are populated by colored people,
but a large number of foreigners live In
An alley director" of Washington, the
first ever compiled, recently has been
published by three women members of
the Monday Evening Club at their own
expense. They are Mrs. Medlll McCor
mlck. Mrs. William Belden NoWe, and
Mrs. John Van Schalck, Jr., wife of the
pastor of the Church of Our Father. The
directory was compiled under the su
pervision of Dr. Thomas Jesse Jones.
Infant Death Rate.
In It are listed all the pest spots of the
city. The figures given are astounding.
Statistics obtained from the District
health report for last year by Dr. Van
Schalck show that the death rate for
infants under one year of age in the
Washington slums are 100 per cent
greater than in the streets. For adults
the death rate Is R0 per cent greater.
It Is in these slums, composed princi
pally of the alleys, and under the very
dome of the Capitol, that many of the
diseases against which the health au
thorities are constantly crusading orig
inate. It Is these spots that give Wash
ington a bad name among cities, from
a moral standpoint. Some of the slums
of Washington, according to Investiga
tors, are worse even than those of New

Committee at tho beginning of the Six-ey-second

of Wisconsin, providing for government
purchase of a large amount of this
property. Owing to the failure of the
committee to get a quorum during the
greater part of the last session, the
measure was pigeonholed and nothing
came of it. It is the Intention of the
Joint committee to have members of
Congress make a thorough investigation
of conditions obtaining in the poorer
quarters of this city, and to urge definite
action by Congress towards a "clean
up." A law is in effect which permits the
changing of alleys Into minor streets by
condemnation, and the assessment of
benefit of adjoining property. Whenever
an effort Is made to put this measure In
effect by condemning some other worse
alleys In the city, however, surrounding
Property holders make such a protest
against paing the benefits, even going
to the length of carrying the matter into
the higher courts, that the measure is
practically a dead letter.
Purchasing: Property Solution.
The purchase of this property by the
Federal government Is the solution pro
posed by Dr. Van Schalck. "Alley prop
erty In Washington Is cheap at present.
as Is the slum property in a number of
smaller streets. The unrchase of this
property, the abolishment of the alley
houses, and the turning of the alleys
into minor streets would abolish once and
for all these pest holes of the National
Capital, and make It in reality the most
beautiful and model city of the country.
"The death rate of white people from
tuberculosis In Washington alleys per
100,009 population is 1SS.S. while the street
percentage of whites Is 117.9. For colored
the alley death rate from this disease is
132.S: street. 1SS.1."

Wolf, one of lhe leaders of this organ
"Many people have the Idea that the
slums of New York are the only ones
that are In need of social workers. How
few are those who know, or stop to think
that there are Immigrants arriving In
our Capital, unable to speak English,
and without means of support; that we
have alleys In which overcrowded fam
