Beginning Mr. iUU naked the popula tion of DrillWAfe. When told 200,000 he said that the shim districts of New York contain 10 times that ninny people. Then he unfolded his story of the work of pro curing cheap tenement* w'huh provide sunlight and privacy. Among New York a 80,000 tenement holmes miracles ns great as the biblical one« have been performed and literally mountains moved. Forty years ago A movement having arisen to abolish the dark room» in those tenements 40.000 window* were cut in wail*. A vast amount of legisla tion had to be secured before the grout reforms could la* accomplished, such ns tearing down rear tweimut« and doing away with miserable allevs. One of these alley* watt shown, fu which Mr. RU» had seen 1,000 people at one time! it extend ed between two tenement a and was "as drunken man is lung." An or* »Hilary tenement block holds about .*1,000 people while in some there are 4,000 or 6,000 inhnhitanta. The pictures shown on the screen were n series of .contrast*-—thu miserable, filthy, dark tenement* und the modern, well aired and lighted and private apart ment, both costing the same rent, the dark, narrow alleys swarming with chil dren and the spacious playgrounds. The "conscience" tenements yield their own er» fl or 7 per cent interest, while "the tenement» for revenue only" paid u* much as 25 or U0 per cant. The former are attractive and healthy, the latter foul and death dealing. The notorious Mulberry Bend and Pov erty Barrel where mine only flourished and even policemen penetrated by pair* have beemne a part of history. On the nu me ground there are now playgrounds with gymnastic apparat. us, kindergar ten», grass plots and a beautiful Italian villa, a recreation building for mothers and children. It required 10 year» of work and writing to accomplish this transformation and an appropriation $3,000,000 from the city made it possible to buy building* and tear them down. The children being the great hope in this work have everything possible don# ide ■ to make of them good citizens. 'Hie most artistic and beautiful tchoolhotiHc* in New York have been built in this dis trict. The law provide» for an outdoor playground, and if this cannot be on the ground level it is mad© ilium the roof. The first floor is equipped for an Indoor play place and from such a school a# this Mr. Hits hays there is no playing of "hooky."

Bov«' clubs are among the enlightening influences, one boy»' club being equal to 100 policemen's clubs, say« Mr. Hi!». The roof playgrounds are kept open during tho summer and th# city provide» a hand to play during tho evening. "When you see about 2,000 children danc ing out there," »aid flu* lecturer, "that'» a sight worth while." Gardening and swimming aro taught during the fuiromcr at public expense.

The pictures of (he (Inc Mills Houses where nun fort able, clean lodging may be obtained for 20 cents a night and cheaper, and the old station house lodging dens where men were huddled together in tilth brought out the story of Mr. lUi»' own experienco in one of these places. Com ing from Denmark a poor and friendless boy, he spent many nights in (he streets with n homeless dog which he found. On » eold and rainy night he was forced to take shelter in a station house, but had to leave bis dog outside. The, next morn ing he discovered that a little gold trinket had been stolen from him, A complaint to the officer in charge elicited the reply that lie was a thief himself and the officer proceeded to eject him from tho building. The little dog waited nt the door, to protect his master hit the officer, who in revenge and wrath picked up tho little animal and dashed out his iirnins against tho wall. That night's mid morning's cxjierienecs mode Jacob Itiia resolve that he would do his utmost to abolish such places and he has. Mr. Kiis made a plea for the foreigner who comes to our shore and for his kind treatment, lie snya the foreigner may more keenly appreciate our liberty for having once lived without it. * Certainly "my city," ns he culls New York, be grateful for one foreigner who landed on its wharves. 1'erhaps Jacob Riis in his lecture told in; iv little more thkn can he read in bis books, but the effect will he farther reaching, ao strung is his personality and so convinc ing and forceful his manner of speaking. He is a plain, straightforward talker, with a sligtit Danish accent, and can tell more than most people words in an hour. 1 can put into lis optimism is of the most cheerful variety and Ida humor keen.
