lurid Picture of Iniquitous Wash
ington PaintetVat Kenyon
A colorful picture of the rein of vice
in which, according; to speakers, envel
opes the Capital roost of the time and
particularly during Inauguration week
was sainted for the delectation of a sub
committee of the Senate District Com
mittee during a heating on tne Kenyon
"red light" bill yesterday. According to
representatives of a number of reform
organizations, the "pest houses of vice"
In Washington make' similar cancers in
other cities blush with ahame, Jt
would almost seem that New York.
Chicago, San Francisco and other large
metropolitan cities are pure ana unae
flled in comparison with Washington.
There is no segregation of these dens
of iniquity, according to speakers. The
streets .are 'utterly unsafe for any un
protected young roan. ThereJs a crying
necessity for some sucn legislation as
that carried 'in the Kenyon bill, which
aims to "wipe out the Tea light- ais.
According to a number of the speak
ers, though, the principal evil takes the
form of bouses scattered In different
parts of the city at which aeeommoaa
thms for illicit purposes may be had
without notice. The existence of these
houses from the Impression given by

superintendent, and Mrs E. II. Mon
roe, of the Goipel Mission: James H.

representatives of a number of local
The speakers Insisted that ordinary
legislation was Inadequate to cope with
the situation. Raids and arrests and
com let Ions of proprietors have no per
manent good effect, they insisted
H. W Kline, superintendent of the
Gospel Mission, told the subcommittee
that certain "red light districts here
were worse than the slums
Chicago, Buffalo and other cities he had
visited He referred particularly to a
group of bawdy houses south of Perm
sylvania Avenue and bordering the Bo
tanic Gardens. Mr Kline severely
criticised the police for lack of control
of "red light" districts
James II Patten told the subcom
mittee that many houses of llrfame are
owned by large corporations, but he ad
mitted that he could not verify the
