New York varied Stock of
Job Steam Printing Office, '
Children Herd. For Alameda & John D,' Spreokols, vailed ; avisottnienl of
tNow Vork Hornld.
Llsion to tho story of llio gutter, it story'
utterly forolgn to tho understanding of people
who live lii comfortable hoines, and
known to the denizens of tho roofs only by
hearsay, Twenty thousand poople on tho hot
nfghta of lost week tmorcd upon the stoops,
sweltered In ash-bins, slept In the gutters of
Hew York's streets. Within an eighth of a
mile of the city hall aromany huge buildings
called tenements, In which scores of families
live, breed and die. Dirt and squalor are
their normal conditions; untidiness, foul
odors, and indecency oro things familiar to
young eyes and tho everyday surrounding
of old ago. In winter time it Is posslblo for
the degraded creatures who burrow in the
kennels to 'oxist, because tho raoie crowded
they aro the warmer they nro, and in the
winter thoi two things most needod are
shelter and heat. Utterly reckless as to appearance
careless of what may happen to
one another In tho way of immorality, with
no prejudices in favor of clean faces or
tidy linen, thoso families hive together as
bugs do, literally rolling ono over the other,
content so long as thoir lowest physical necessities
aro oven partially met In tho summer
all this is ohangod. Shelter, to be sore,
is desirable, but thcro aro conditions of
caloric utterly unbearablo, which even these
pooplo, unaccustomed to caso or comfort of
any sort or kind, insist upon so far as they
aro ablo to control affairs. It requires no
very great strotch of imaginations to understand
that tho clouo, unvontllated houses in
which these people burrow, where children
are born, the sick aro cared for, the dead lie
waiting burial, whore cooking and washing
and a thousand and one domestic economies
necessary to every household, however
humblo, are carried on, cannot bo
very dcslrablo places for anyone to
sleep in during the frightful nights of
torrldlty. What, then, must they bo when
not only ono, but a dozen, are expected to
find nature's sweet restorer, balmy sleop, in
the contracted, foul Bmclling, almost loathsome
places in which these pooplo stay!
They can not go to tho roof, it is already
occupiod; so they swarm upon the streets.
First come first served is thoir motto. As
soon as tho evening shades prevail thoso
creatures cmorgo half-clothed, dirty, comfortless
to the last degree, aud wind their
way through the crooked passages, down the
stairways to tho narrow street, Tho steps
are soon taken possession of. Every point
where a person can rest his weary hood is
oocuplod. Far in tho evening hours, when
children of people in moderate circumstances
are asleep, theee streets are noisy, echoing
with tho cries and sports, tho fights, the
broils, the rompc of wretched little children,
whose dirty faces are stained with tears, to
whom n crust is a bouquet, aud a pillow an
unhoard of luxury, Thoro is something
about New York mud which deilos analysis.
It has a peculiar, pungent, sickening odor to
which tho frightful smells from Hunter's
point and Darren island are like the prefamea
from a lady's boudoir. There are streets in
which this mud has grown gray in the ser
vice. It nestles in the gutters, it hides
beneath the stones, it rises in foul vapors
from tho roadway and is as familiar to ovory
ono of tho boys and girls and babies on the
block as tho rap of a policeman' club or the
'yell of a vender of fih.
A walk through ono of these streets at 11
o'clock of a frightful Septembor night would
' do much to allay the discontented fovoi
which eats the very hearts of so many ol
New York's well-to-do people. Children art
(eon there by tho hundreds who haven't
been in bod for weeks, who haven't changed
their clothing In months, to whom a good
wash would be a revelation more abuoluto
than the most startling sentence in the
apocalypse Curly-hooded boys and girls,
with bright eyes and sturdy flgureo, literally
romp IB tho street and pelt each other with
Its dirt. Miserable, big headed, weak eyed,
pallid faced, wasting babies lio upon the
laps of slatternly womon and roll thoir
heads from side to side in pttlablo weakness.
All manner of costume can there bo seen.
Barefooted mon and women, half-grown
boys and girls, with but a single garment
them and tho outer air, disappointed-looking
women form tho motley groups of every
possible age and evory imaginable condition
' of trouble and distress. Recently tho vary
same and zenith of physical discomfort and
distress was reached.
During the late days of oxcesslve heat,
with no let up of any consequence at night,
the gutters of New York's tenement districts
h presented a sad and doleful sight. On nearly
very corner an attractive glare from
Men who can not afford an oxtra
t dollar a week for a homo, apparently found
no difficulty in raising a nickel overy half
hour or so for a pot of boer. Old mon and
women, fathers and mothers, children and
babies, one and all, partook of tho foaming
beverage from time to time. Littlo by little
tho wesry children, tirod with crying, recognizing
the utter uwlossness of asking for
comfort, spread themselves upon the sidewalk,
curled up in gutters, rested where beat
they could, and fell asleep in positions as
comfortablo (is it was posslblo to get Groups
upon tho stoops followed suit Now and
then, -with a cry of "Here comes the copj"
the children, startled from a feverish, slumber,
would rise and run, but knowing by experience
that they had done nothing to
more than n gentle tap or a rough
reprimand, the soon returnod and resumed
Thoro was no air stirring anywhere those
nights, save on the n fs of somo very palatial
worth nises. It tfus a terribl 1 night for
people who could go to the teashore, but
were compelled by stress of busiufiis to return
by the last boat or train, and seek refreshing
rest in their own comfortablo homes.
Many a rich man sighed for air
while he sat the sole occupant of a spacious
chamber. How, then, was it in tho streets
running from ferry to ferry, how in the narrow
highways and byways called "places,"
how in thoso enormous human hivos whfru
thet poor of every name and nation 8re
crowded more closoly than Mr. Bergu permits
hogs to bo herdod on their way to the
slaughter house? Tho heat is no respecter of
persons. It starts the fover in every vein,
whethor that voln bo In tbo body of tbo rich
pr poor, the sick or tho well.
For years wo havo waited,
In hope and in glee,
Watching the billows.
Scanning the beu,
For our ship on the ocean,
Laden with gold,
To como and enrich us. .
Tho tale is soon told;
No longer we're waiting
For sorrow's our cup;
Tho ship has como In,
But it's bottom-side up.
