L Co. -dt anA t.n6wes d e WORK OF CHARITIES Joint Report Summarizing Results Accomplished. HOUSING CONDITIONS THE RECORD OF.TWENTY MONTHS OUTLINED. Large Number of Men and Women Aid Boards Without Compensa tion-The Savings Fund. The joint report of the Associated Chari ti<s and the Citizens' Relief Aseociation, summarizing the results accomplished in the past twenty months, furnishes interesting data concerning the work among the needy of the national capital. The report has been prepared by Mr. Charles F. Weller,. gc neral secretary. and Prof. Bernard T. Jan ney. chairman of the board of managers of the Associated Charities. It is shown that during the past fall and winter the total number o-f subscribers and the collections of the s,oeiety have been doubled, while within the past twenty months the number of friendly visitors, savings collectors and other unpaid workers engaged in the move ment has been increased three-fold. Social settlement work has been inaugurated with in the year, three new social centers have heen established, and four of the six division offices have been greatly improved. Three new committees have been organized In !m portant lines of service as follows: Friendly visiting. improvement of housing conditions, and summer outings. The report also mentions the use of the Associated Charities as a source of informa tion concerning applicants for help, it hav ing been employed extensively by chdrches and other organizations and business fias for this purpose. The results given in the report are, in part, as follows: Record of Twenty Months. "The community's increasing confidence and interest has made it possible for the Associated Charities, during the past twen ty months, to accomplish larger service than in previous seasons, in meeting the pressing necessities of the needy, in pro jecting new preventive measures, and in giving more adequate compensation to the trained agents who devote their entire lives to the work. Ir. short, the Associated Charities -of Washington is gradually at taining its ambition to be thoroughly worthy of this nation's capital. The strengthening of financial and personal re sources during the past twenty months has been accompanied by a decided increase in the work which the association has been called upon to do. Opportunities for help ing unfortunate families have been reported more numerously by persons and organiza tions interested in the work, and the serv ice of the association has come within the knowledge of the needy who have been en abled to apply for assistance. "One of the most gratifying features of the growth during the past twenty months is the fact that a large number of men and women have been enlisted in some form of personal service to the needy. A conference class for the enlistment and training of these unpaid workers has been conducted and the results are notable. Resourceful leaders among the colored people have also been interested in friendly visiting, and it is ffelt that this new organization will be of great value and usefu:ness in the future. The Savings Collected. "These unpaid workers have also ren dered great service in looking after the savings collections. Several men and wo men, largely members of young people's societies in the churches, have been enlisted to spend an hour or more each week in visiting a list of comparatively poor peo ple or canvassing a selected alley or ne glectt d neighborhood to collect regular weekly savings of small amounts. These amounts are deposited with the Associated Charities, and certificates of deposit are issued to the parties interested. By this system new ideas of thrift and provident planning have been awakened among the poor, while they have been helped mate rially by the plan. "The division conferences have been a source of considerable strength in the re cent work of the association, and are a great assistance to the work of friendly visiting. An influential committee on the improvement of housing conditions has been established. representing the growing de sire of the Assoclated Charities and of the entire community to remove some of the causes of distress by raising the standards of home life in comparatively neglected neighborhoods. Personal tours of inspec tion have been made by members of this committee among insanitary dwellings known to the society's agents, and the corn mittee has been instrumental in effecting needed improvements. Fresh-Air Excursions. "The new committee on summer outings, which developed during the early summer to provide fresh-air excursIons for children and mothers of the cIty, met with success in its efforts, and the response was gener onis. A social center committee lately or ganizedi by the southeast division has fur nished the office in that sectIon, and is con ducting a series of helpful social meetings, in which wholesome entertainment is en joyed. A second social center committee has bcen organized among the 4colored peo ple In the southwest part of the city, with similar purposes," Among other committees whose work is mentioned with commendation in the re port are the following: Committee on provi dent plans, executive committee, finance committee, committee on division organiza tion and auditing committee. The finance committee is especially praIsed for its ef forts. which have resulted in doubling the number of subscribers and the amount of collections. The social settlement work is reviewed in the report. Two houses devoted to that purpose have been established-the "Neighborhood House," in Southwest Washt lngton, and the "Noel House," on 1st street in the northwest. Clubs and classes are Ibeing conducted at these settlements andi many young people are receIving the ben efits of the work. In regard to the duty of the Associated CharitIes toward south ern cities in c'harity work, the report con tains the following: Hope for Future Usefulnes. "It is hoped that the Associated Charities of the national capital, as it grows strong er within itself and more nearly adequate to Its own problems, may be able occa sionally to stimulate and counsel citizens who are seeking to develop modern phi lanthrophy in other cities by various means. In additIon to the fact that an organization of this charact-r in the national capital should develop a national reputation and special duties and opportunities in regard to Isouthern cities, where the charity prob lems are especially similar to those of this city, and where modern 'charity or ganization societies' are less developed than in other portions of the country." The statistics of the twenty months' 1servIce, from November 1, 1900, to July 1, 19102, show that the total number of famn ilies treated in the six divisions was 5,958, and the number of individuals included in Ithe families was 15,6111.

"I do not wish to speak to you in the language of idle compliment, and yet it .1s a but a rare statement of fact to say that k nowhere in our country could there be ie gathered an audience which would stand e as more typically characteristic than this n of all those qualities and attributes which .e have given us of the United State.s our,com manding position in the industrial world. There is no need of my preaching to this ie gathering the need of combining efficiency d with upright dealing, for as an American a and as a citizen of New York I am proud to feel that the name of your organization e carries with it a guaranty of both; and your practice counts for more than any preaching could possibly count. New York s is a city of national importance, because its position toward the nation is unique, and the chamber of commerce of New York must- of necessity be an element of weight In the commercial and industrial welfare of ,e the entire people. New York is the great port of entry for our country-the port in e which centers the bulk of the foreign com y merce of the country-and her welfare is therefore no matter of mere local or munic e ipal, but of national, concern. - "The conduct of the government in deal ra ing with all matters affecting the financial and commercial relations of New York - must continually take into account this - fact; and it must be taken into account in o appreciating the importance of the part played by the New York chamber of com merce. Stands for Peace. "This body stands for the triumphs of peace both abroad and at home. We have passed that stage of national development when depreciation of other peoples is felt as a tribute to our own. We watch the e growth and prosperity of other nations, ie not with hatred or jealousy, but with sin it cere and friendly good will. s "I think I can say safely that we have 1. shown by our attitude toward Cuba. by our attitude toward China, that as re gards weaker powers our desire is that they may be able to stand alone, and that if h they will only show themselves willing to ie deal honestly and fairly with the rest of ly mankind we on our side will do all we can r- to help, not to hinder, them. af "With the great powers of the world we d desire no rivalry that is not honorable to . both parties. We wish them well. We be d lieve that the trend of the modern spirit is ever stronger toward peace, not war; to y ward friendship, not hostility. as the nor .. mal international attitude. We are glad. ez inn.eed, that we are on good terms with all 1e the other peoples of mankind, and no effort on our part shall be spared to secure a i. continufnce of these relatiqns. d "And remember, gentlemen, that we shall t be a potent factor for peace largely in pro ) portion to the way in which we make it evident that our attitude is due, not to wegkness, not to inability to defend our selves, but to a genuine repugnance to e wrongdoing, a genuine desire for self-re M specting ftlendship with our neighbors. "The voice of ie weakling or the craven counts for nothing when he clamors for peace; but the voice of the just man armed is potent. We need to keep in a condition of preparedness, especially as regards our navy, not because we want war, but because we desire to stand with those whose plea t- for peace is listened to with respectful at Lt tention. , Industrial Peace Desirable. y "Important though it is that we should r have peace abroad, it is even more import. n ant that we s'hould have peace at home.

"The chamber of commerce, it is no idle boast to say, stands in a pre-eminent de gree for those qualities which make the successful merchant, the successful busi ness man, whose success is won in ways honorable to himself and beneficial to his fellows. There are very different kinds of success. "There is the success that brings with it the seared soul-the success which is achieved by wolfish greed and vulpine cun ning-the success which makes honest men uneasy or indignant in its presence. Then there is the other kind of success-the suc cess which comes as the reward of keen in sight, of sagacity, of resolution, of address, combiled with unflinching rectitude of be havior, public and private. The first kind of success may, in a sense-arid a poor sense at that-benefit the individual, but it is al ways and necessarily a curse to the com munity; whereas the man who wins the second kind as an incident of its winning becomes a beneficiary to the whole com monwealth. Throughout its history the chamber of commerce has stood for this second and higher kind of success. "It is, therefore, fitting that I should come bn here as the chief executive of the nation to wish you well in your new home; for you belong not merely to the city, not merely to the state, but to all the country, and you stand high among the great factors in build ing up that marvelous prosperity which the entire country now enjoys. The continu ance of this prosperity depends in no small measure upon your sanity and common sense, upon the way in which you combine energy in action with conservative refusal to take part in the reckless gambling which is so often bred by and which so inevitably puts and end to prosperity. Men of Might. "You are men of might in the world of American effort; you are men whose names stand high in the esteem of our people; you are spoken of in terms like those used in the long-gone ages when it was said of the Phoenician cities that their merchants were princes. Great is your power, and great, therefore, your responsibility. "Well and faithfully have you met this responsibility in the past. We look forward with confident hope to what you will do in the future, and it is, therefore, with sin cerity that I bid you godspeed this evening and wish for you, in the name of the nation, a career of ever-increasing honor and use fulness."~ The address of the President was followed with close attention and frequent applause. and at its close the assemblage arose and cheered. Speeches also were made by Ambassador Cambon, Sir Michael Henry Herbert, Sir Albert K. Rollit, M. P.; PrInce Henry of Pless, Mr. Heckman, vice president, of the Berlin chamber of commerce; W. P. Wood, president of the London Corn Trade Asso ciation, and Mr. Hugot, representing the French chamber of commerce, who, in clos ing, said: "It is in his own name that a delegate of Paris thanks you, the representatives of American commerce, for the support you have given to a work so dear to our hearts. After uniting the Mediterranean to the In dian ocean, France now sees with pleasure that it is her sister republic, America, who takes upon herself the task of completing the great enterprise of the Panama canal. "The time is not far distant when the Pa cific will equal the Atlantic by the magni tude of its commelce: The American re public, which has .opened the first railway in Panama, is faithful to -her traditions in completing the canal which will unite the two most frequented seas of the globe, and in the long lapse of ages the names of the United States and France will be insepara ble in the memory ot future generations." COUNT CASSINI OYTENDED. Did Not Attend Banquet Because of an Alleged Fanied Blight. The New York World today say-s: The Comte Cassini, amliassador extraor; dinary and minister plenipotentiary of Rus sia to the United States, did not attend the banquet of, the chamber of commerce last night. Instead, he sent a note of regret. It was generally observed that the count'g seat was vacant, and there was much spec ulation as to why he did not attend. It was, also remarked that, while the flags or Great Britain, France and Germany bore a conspicuous place with old glory on tbe first page of the menu, that of Russia had been omitted. . . The fact la that the e6iunt declined to at tend the banquet becanse be felt that hi country bad been slighted by the omission' of the Russian c6lors from.-the menu card and also by .omission of any reference to Russia in the text of the souvenir program. The count said to the member who bad come to escort him that, in view of the obvious sIfght put upon his country, he dould not possibly be present at the ban quet.

Alleged Delay Subject of Complaints From Builders and Others. The Commissioners have during the past few months received a number of cornmuni cations complaining of the long time re quired under present regulations to secure a building permit. The writers do not com plain that the fault lies with the building inspector's office, but argue there should be a reform in the law requiring the ap proval of all projections beyond the build ing line by the Secretary of War. A writer to the Commissioners today on the subject declares it requires sometimes four weeks to secure a permit. One law places the parking space under control of the Com missioners and another requires that the Commissioners can grant no projection- priv ileges on this space without the consent of the Secretary of War. From ten days to two weeks are required, it is stated, to get a projection through the War Department. One of the writers on the subject argues that the Commissioners should be given au thority to grant projections. If it still be desired that the Secretary of War shall ex ercise an influence over t,he subject the amerfiment might ~e so worded as to re quire the perwiss n of the War D)epart ment in all cases of p)rojections exceeding five feet. Snowden Ashford, the inspector of build ings, in speaking of the letters today, said tihat his office grants permits as fast as the force there will allow. The office has no control over projections, and must await the verdict of the War Department in all such oases before it can act. For an-or dinary d'welling or a row of dwrellings, he said, the time required for the granting of a permit in his office was but three or four days. For large office buildings and apart ment houses about ten days were required for going over the plans to see that they comply with the regulations. The office force is still inadequate, Mr. Ashford says. The White Republicans. To the Editor of The Evening Star: As an old subscriber and admirer of The Star I was very sorry and much surprised to see your editorial in the issue of Satur day on "Black Eyes for 'Lily Whites' " which does great injustice to a much mis understood body of men-the white republi-e cans of the south. You plainly state that the republicans in the south deserved to be beat in the recent elections, and dub them; "iiy whites." I am not so well informed as to the situation in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. but in Virginia and Nortir Carolina there is no "lily white" party, and in North Carolina, my native state, the re publican party stands for the same that it does in the north.for sound iuoney, pro tection, a free ballot and a fair 'count. It was never a "nigger" party nor is it! hbW a "lily white" party. It is true that the democratic party, by force and fraud suc ceeded in disfranchIsing the negro, which injustice was fought by the republican party with ali its might, but having failed to prevent it. the republican party in North Carolina in the recent campaign appealed to the whites for support, believing that there is nothing In its principles' whielt should prevent the white men of the south from .joining it. and the election Ehown goo ,.rults, (or it is beaten no worsethni it was two years ago, although since tt tieitvas been robbed of at least 60,000O negr voes.The party there is in god shape, as future elections will show. It is led by honorable and patriotic men, who need encouragement by republicans of the north and believers in fali" play ekerywhere. * JORTH CAROLINA.
