-hjii McK"UZieEii.jofthK recoiniiiended
The strefts nnd avenues of tin city
should be cleaned more frequently than
we are huv able to do, with the limited
means at our disposal Fully one third or
the paved area can only be cleaned once
per week, which Is too great a propor
tion to be left in that condition. Not a
street In the cltj should be cleaned less
than twice per week. The two ij-teii,s
of cleaning the public ttreeUj, viz, hand
and mfichine, are now on trial In this
city tfor the first time. That of lumrt
cleaning is much uiiperior to that don- by
sweeping machines, in many respects, :s
most apparent, und has been quickly ap
predated bj both the press and public,
so much to, that urgent demands have
nlread) been made to have the Tonner
sbtem clndfd, but this cannot now be
done. In view of the limited means at the
disposal or this department Among Uie
many udvantagesof hand cleaning may bo
mentloued Fir.-t That the work being
done during da light can be Ivtter done
Second-lb almost noiseless, and creatps
but little or no dust. Third -That under
present tybtem, the dirt being gathered
in bags and carried to the dumps
before emptjing, no dust or noibe Is
made hi the removal from the streets
FourMi The t lores, dwellings, and passers
on the htre.ts are not Inconvenienced in
auy way. FiJth Tiie doors and w'ndows
n.aj be left open, and the frecl, air
erOojed during the heated term without
danger from the clouds of dust expert
uiofcd when tiie sweeping machine passes.
Sixth -Neither are the streets flooded with
wafer, making them Mlppery and unsafe
for ti-Jtfcl, t-ither on foot or by ehicle
Furttier and to my mind, one or the mutt
iuijKirtant thing's that chould commend tin
sjbO'm, to both the legislative brunches,
and Ui the pimhc, lb that it neopssarily
glvec a larger number or individuals a
Chance loccure a means of livelihood.
That it xjsts more to clean streets in this
wajr is adiuttted. Suppose it does.' lh it
not hotter to afford the deserving poor
an opportunity to en in a living for them
sJve and those dependent upon them, m
this way, than to be called upon to care
f"r them through both public and privace
charity? Work makes a better (.lass or
citizens. Itis work tnat i needed, and not
charity. I lime said that it cohts more
to hand clean than to inaohuie sweep:
apparently it does, when the figuies aiL
compared, but in the end I am inclined
to tntnk it dt.es not, for the reason that
public and private means would be called
upon to aid fewer cases of destitution.
With work afforded, petty cnmo dimin
ishes, hence leas cost to the public In the
detection, an est, and punishment of of
fenders, bo that, in mj opinion, the extra
cose is eventually saved, and you hav.i
a better, happi-jr, and more contented
class ol citizens.
Under the appropriation for 1S9S, about
$32,000 was set aside for hand-cleaning
a portion of the improved streets and
avenues. With that amount, It was e&U
mated that about 400,000 square yards
per daj coulu be swept for 260 days,
which Is not being done. For 1899, I
ask for this class or work $73,000, pro
posing to sweep 800,000 square yards
daily for 290 days, making an aggregite
of 232,000,000 square yards for the year,
which, at contract prlceb-viz, 32 cents
per 1,000 square yards-would cost very
near the amount asked for.
The itreets now being daily hand-cleaned
arc llio'ic upon which the greatest amount
of trnfflc converges, and are known as
business streets, with tbe single exccpUou
of the ones bounding the Congressional
Librarv, on Capitol Rill. There are, how
ever, other streets that should be cleaned
in this maimer even now, and which, I
believe, will have to be added to this
class very bhortly, such as K street, from
Ninth street to Washington Circle; Con
necticut avenue, from K street to Florida
avenue; Pennsylvania avenue, fiom Seven
teenth street to Rock Creek Bridge; Dupout
and Scott circles; Sixteenth street, from
K Bltcefc to Florida avenue; Seventeenth
street, from New York avenue to I street;
E street from Fifth street to Thirteenth
street; Eighth street, from G street to
Mount Vernon Square; Sev enth street, from
Pennsylvania avenue to Mount Vernon
Square; Pennsjlvania a-venue, from Second
street to Eleventh street cast; East Capi
tol street, from Second street to Eleventh
street; H street and Marjland avenue,'
from First street east to Fifteenth street
east, and North Capitol street, from J)
street to M street. There are others
that sh'.uld be added this year, but to
sweep even those eited would require the
greater portion of the $10,000 acidlUonal
asl-ed for this year, and submitted with
estimate for 1899, particularly so, when
it is now evident that thib cla-ss of wor'c
can be conducted for about 290 days
in Hip Tar, Instead of 260, the average
for mar hine sweeping.
The machine sweeping I propose to in-creafro-n
1 000,000 square yards per day
as now done, to 1,150,000, cobtlng at con
tract price 2D 3-4 cents per 1,000 yards,
alwut $70,000, svveeplngonly 260 days, the
average. 4 doing tbe proposed area of
hand and machine cleaning together, glveb
an agr-gateof i,950 000 square yards for
daily cleaning, or in round numbers, about
three-fifths of the entire paved" area (ex
cept while) of the city, estimating the
total paved area to bu 3,250,000 square
yards To'al cost estimated at $151,000,
and bwepr as follow,; 800,000 square yards
Piiailj" 1,400,000 square yards three times
per veek. 100,000 twice and 800,000
once per week, during 260 days, or 43 1-3
weeks Total area swept under both ys
tcms. If work couid be done during the
estimated number of days, viz 290 and
at a total cast of $151,233,

was clcauod daily, the cost would bo about
$201,066 and the remaining one-thtrd

total cost would he $231,316. If only
one half of the city was, cleaned daily
and the nthr half three times per week,
the total coht would be $203,125. K one

would bring the bst to tha figures of my
estimate for 1899, viz: $151,000.
I have no doubt that many will think
that the rigures of my estimate for 1899.
are sufficiently lnrpe, nnd that an appio
prlatlon for the amount estimated for
this work a geneious oue, und so it would
be, but It would be t!ll $25,000 hliort or
what it actually should be. The sum
decided upon should be $175,000. Glance
back to tiie statement of work proposed
under that estimate no street in the city
(other ihun the cobble paved) would be
swept lciS twicfj per week by hand. If
the public-spirited citizens of Washington
(and their numbei is legion) will onlv
think what a dirfereuco thib increased
cleaning would make hi the health, com
fort, und general appearance of the city,
"i am sure uvery one of them would gladly
uid by every means In theli power the
authorities in securing the means neces
sary to. carry out the work indicated.
No matter how stately thu buildings
nuiy be that line a thoroughfare, how
beautiful the thousands, of trees ma be
that simile it, oi how smooth Urn pave
ment, ir it isnot kept clean, all the
other beaiiUcb lobe their attractiveness, and
-what would otherwise bo a delight to
the eye l eeomeh of fensive, boh to resident
and the "stranger vIthin the gates."
To bweep the entire arpa of the city
dally for 200 days, at present contract
prices, ilr, 25 3-4 cents per 1,000 square
ynids, would cost $217,000, or approM
maiely SS3.713 Jess than hand-ckamng,
but it must be borne in mind that there
is an estimated difference of thirty (30)
days between the two syntuir-thut is
to say, that hand cleaning can be applied
290 days and the other but 260. Th
hand svstem l therefore entitled to a
credit for these thirty days, which would
amount to .31,200, the actual difference
therefore, in favor or mat hine sweeping
ib but $02,517. The cost of machine
cleaning the other unatfc as glvon Cor
hand ch-Anlng diminishes proportionately
If the desire to furnish as much work
as possible to the unemplojed prevails, as
it bhould, making them self-supporting citi
zens, the adoptl'in of the bui.d system
seems certain, as it would call for about
82 per cent mi n- laboi of all claseea than
the machine system. t
1 eMimaie that the force required by
the foimer, of ai! grades, for dunning
enUre area, would be about, 575, and
3'0 for the latter, a difference of 259
persons, representing probably 1,291
others dependent upon their labor for
support. To make it plain, oue system
would furnish the means of support for
2,875 people, and the other hot 1,380.
If the aiea of sweeping was reduced as
a matter of course the force on either
system would be cut down ptoportion
I have devoted considerable space to
the subject of street cleaning. It Is a
most Important one, and for the further
reason that It has two systems, hand and
machine work, which are on trial in the
city foi tbe first time, Loth using im
proved methods It therefore seemed
Incumbent en me to enter Into details,
as to area sweeping and cost of same, a
well as to give some expression as to
the merits of each sjstem. I unhesitat'
Ingly pronounce In favor of ihe hand
cleaning, for two reasons, it docs better
work and disturbs no one, and that it
affords more work for willing hands.
