I A Word for the Street Sweepets. To the Editor of Tlio Stur: Very much lias been said in behalf of 1 the government clerks, the letter carriers, firemen and others who are in the race for a square deal. What a sad pity it is that not a word has been uttered in be half of the street sweepers of this city! The poor, of whom you know- so little about, are being looked up- and food, clothing, shoes and other things arc be ing given them, while the poor street sweepers arc being neglected. Think what a terrible epidemic of diseases would befall the nation's capital were it not for these poor men, who must toil every day keeping your streets, right in front of your doors, in a sanitary condi tion?for the pittance Of $1.50 a day! While the generous-hearted citizens of Washington were giving money to make ; glad the hearts of tii-? poor wo wonder if these poor street sweepers. whom the> know, were romemberwl.
