tion being circulated on the North
west Side asking the removal of the
settlement from the neighborhood.
Peter Peterson, 1921 Humboldt

boldt street, and Andrew 0. Ogne,
1911 Humboldt street, are the prin
cipals behind the petition, which has
been circulated for the past two
weeks. If enough names are secured
to it the paper will be presented to
Aid. Littler of the 28th ward, who
will be asked to take the matter up
with the city council in October.
Mrs. Esther Falkenstein, founder
of the settlement, is out of tfiwn at
present Criticism is directed at her
for subletting the hall for dances, and
a Mrs. Defering, housekeeper of the
settlement, is directly blamed for al

which it is charged occur at the
dances.
According to those having the peti
tion in charge, men attending the
dances congregate oh the sidewalk,
talk loudly, and make sleep impossi
ble for residents of the neighborhood.

stein and Mrs. Defering, and want the
settlement retained in its present lo
cation. The moBt serious charge against
the settlement is that it is a public
nuisance because of the noise. This
charge is directly only at the dance
hall.
