a copy of tho report des riblng smo ot

This Is the second Investigation com
pleted by housing experts of wards rep.
resented by Organization Councilmen who
nro opposed to tho new housing code
Recently an Invest'gatlon cf tho 11th
Ward, represented In Councils by John P.
Connelly, chairman of the t'lnamo Com
mittee, dlscloccd hundreds of Iniantary
dwellings, wlndowless rooms ai d mhor
housing evl.s. Both Soger nnd Connelly
are opposed to the new Division oi Hous
ing and Sanitation.
Some of the houses In Connelly's ward,
experts said, were unfit for human beings,
Tho survey made f Seger's ward by
three experts, composed of an engineer
experienced In construction, a master
plumber and a builder, began several
weeks ago. Homes of more than a thou
sand families, whoso male members often
have voted for Scger, were visited. Most
of the tenants complained to the experts
of tho shocking conditions, but said they
wero arraia to lodge a complaint with
tho landlord or his agent, becauso they
owed a part of the rent.
Somo of the conditions found by the ex
perts were typical housing evils. Un
safe buildings, damaged roofs and flooded
cellars nro plentiful In Seger's ward.
Ilooms were found with walls actually
soaked with water. Mothers nnd Infants
were found living In cellar rooms which
prominent sociologists nave termed ns
"dens of sorrow."
COMPLAINT TURNED ASIDE.
"I told my landlord that tho chimney
on the roof of my house was unsafe and
ho told me I should mind my own busi
ness," said a woman living on Lombard
street, when asked why sho didn't com
plain about the chimney,
Without concealing their Identity, the
experts dally visited t'ne 7th Ward. Their
first trip disclosed two unsafe buildings,
of which the Building Department was
notified nt once.
In the heart of Soger's ward nine
houses were found whose halts are not
lighted In the evening. Sixty houses
were without fire escapes. Defective
hydrants wero found In 15 yards, many
of which havo not supplied water for
"Where do you get water for cooking
"We go out and beg from the grocer
or some storekeeper from whom we buy
our things." said a mother of six chil
dren living not far from Soger's home
on Pino street, near 15th.
FIND II FLOODED CELLARS.
Just before tho Investigation was com
pleted the experts found 14 flooded cel
lars. Several women and men wero busy
trying to empty the cellars with buckets.
"Did you tell the landlord the cellar
was flooded?" asked one of the experts.
"The landlords only come nround be
fore election day, when they want us to
vote for their candidate," replied a 70-year-old
man, who was down on his
knees balling out tho water.
Courtyards In many sections were
found to contain defectlvo paving.
Thirty-two alleys connecting with dwell
ing houses were filled with water. Seven
yards whero children were plajlng were
found to contain several Inches of water.
The Investigators found 60 actual cases
of filthy conditions prevailing In the 2)8
"blind alley houses," which are not
visible from the street.

WAR WILL TEACH BUSINESS
LESSON. SAYS CLOTHING MAN
Joseph Grnshelm Declares Commerce
Will Be Bedistributed.
"I believe that tho present wnr Is going
to prove a great blessing because It Is
teaching manufacturers and business men
In all lines In every part of the country
new opportunities every day, and will
cause a redistribution of the world's com
merce. It will show tho people of all
nations that trade can nnd should be
equitably divided and not cornered by
any one nation."
This view of the business outlook was
expressed today by Joseph Grashelm. of
Rich & Grashelm, manufacturers ot chil
dren's clothing, 12th and Cherry streets.
Ho declared that ho knew ot nt least ono
department store that was not even pay
ing expenses. A buyer for this store went
so far as to say that tho store would
have to keep on losing money for boiuo
time, lie added.
"Wo are not making any money. We
nro not working our men full time. We
haven't tho orders for the goods. The
new tariff law doesn't meet present needs
nnd It has done much to hurt business.
I think It la a good thing that the Avar
came when it did, for X believe that the
country would have been In a worse con
dition because of the tariff law than It
Is now relatively speaking.
"If the war had not come Just when It
did tho tariff law would have been tried
out long before this. It hasn't had the
chance, so that the result la that nobody
knows Just what the truth Is. That, in
my opinion, is tho reason why business
conditions are not what they ought

Interesting services were held today to
mark thp 26Gth anniversary of the death
of King Charles I, beheaded at White
hall and regarded by many members of
tho Anglican church to have been offl
dally canonized as a saint.
The principal bervlces were held at St.
Elizabeth's Episcopal Church, 16th and
Mifflin streets, which were attended by
members of tho Society of St. Charles.
King and Martyr, who are at the head
of a movement to have the dead ruler
Evensong service will also be held at
5:30 a'clock this afternoon In the martyred
King's memory. As proof that the ruler
has been recognized as a saint on tho
Anglican calendar, the St. Charles So

collection of the church which refer to
him In the term of "Blessed Martyr," a
