In places on almost Street every where worthy Charity is not bestowed id All Christian countries it has become a custom to remember the poor at the season of Christmas. And when people Are bestowing presents upon their friends Aud children stand on tiptoe to catch a glance of Santa Claus it is no More than fitting that those who Nave no Money to buy presents and whose children never knew about kind Kress Kringle should receive a portion of the benefits that Are so freely bestowed upon All. It is one of the boasts of the civilization that came with christianity that it acknowledges Ute Equality of the race to matter How High or Low the different individuals May be. With the belief that All men have souls that May be saved christianity has spread itself among the poor where its ministrations have always been most successful. Hand in hand with the doctrine of future Reward or punishment has Goue the practice of bestowing alms so that persons who could not accept the belief on the grounds of reason were the first to adopt it when they saw the Charity it bestowed. It is probable that the general practice of alms giving among professed christians has won More people into the Church than All the logic of the Learned doctors. A Man May talk to a hungry person for hours about fortitude and self denial and it wont convince him of any Friendly intention and another Man without half his logic will come along and give him a loaf of bread and that hungry Man will believe every word he says no matter what to Imbo it has grown to be a custom among All Good citizens to give alms to tile deserving poor at Christmas tune. It is the Best evidence a Man can give of Ute Good will which he owes the race. Every City and town has Many poor people whose Only crime is poverty. Ald these numerous charitable organizations work ail the year round und bestow untold he Netts. The associated charities of this City relieve much suffering and prevent Many crimes but from the rigid system they Are forced to adopt there Are numerous instances that they fait to reach. There Are Many people who will not work of other people will feed them and the associated charities have to make rules to project themselves from impostors. Thou again there Are thousands of people who Are so proud that they will starve sooner than ask for Ald Aud so suffer on in silence. ascertain tile condition of Many of the worthy floor of Boston the Globe Lias made a canvass of tile City. The scenes Aud incidents portrayed below Are not the effects of idleness and intemperance thousands of such exist but they have been omitted from this list. The South Cove. Longing for Fli tily of one Brea for two daughters a smoke a four left in a eleven. Three flights of narrow stairs full of cracks and covered with dirt instead of a carpet Lead in to a South Cove attic the dimensions of which Are 8x10 feet.

This is the Home of a family of six consisting of father Mother and four children. Two of tile latter Are old enough to he called women. The father is out of work and the Kotlier and two daughters simply Lite family needs by making Blue Jean overalls at eight cents a pair. Yesterday afternoon when Hie writer called the two smaller children mid gone to lied to keep away Iron. Hie rata that dripped from the roof.

None of them complained of poverty they expected the father would get Wink right away. And then they could live Aguzi. The idea of calling for help was terrible to them and they till begged to have nothing said about i heir condition. Between Federal and Lincoln streets is a tenement House full of poor people most of whom Are deserving. I to old men and a Small boy occupy a Small room at Hie top. The furniture consists of a bed Aud Box client such As sailors use. They have had nothing but crackers to each for three Days. A a been cold a said one of the old men. When asked Why lie did no to go out to sell mate lies a awful cold. We All went to bed and took the Little fellow Between us so he a lady on Harrison Avernus had promised him an overcoat which lie was going to get and then he be All right Lor work. Tile room was cold Aud Damp but they did no to comp Iii. Quot i jest wish i bad a bit of Erbacker a said the older of the two men when asked what he wanted most. A i can get along pretty fair on no fodder to speak of of i could Only have a pull at my one floor below this human Cage was a Large Bleak room with one bed Aud no heat save what came from a Small kerosene stove. This was the Home of a Kotlier and four Small children. The father was lost at sea last Winter Aud the widow takes in be whig. Yesterday she was at work on some coarse frocks patiently plying the Needle with Blue fingers. The children were in Klug dolls out of the pillows of the dirty bed.

All hut them four you were looking at Aud they a be bet off in a All of tile family wore clean and so was the room but their clothing was poor and they had a pinched half starved look. Hie Kotlier is making a Noble tight against tearful Odds. It is Only a question of time when she must a give no. At the North end. Touching tales of Dis Russ it Here the bitter fold Cornel through the cracks. At the North end several cases of actual want were discovered. It was sunday morning and the Snow was falling heavily when a reporter visited some of toe localities where the poor people reside. In Holden court several really destitute cases were found. One old lady who resides with Ber daughter in a Dean but decidedly poor apartment was found sitting Over the fire counting her beads and muttering prayers for the sick and poverty stricken like herself. Quot yes Quot she said a i have a utile fire Blit its Little indeed i Nave. Only that wilful of Coal you see there behind the stove and that was sent 111 to in by a neighbor and a Good kind neighbor site is. Indeed Many a time would i have gone cold a nil hungry by for her.

She was a widow and earned a pittance by going out washing Aud by taking in sewing for the landlords but despite Lier exertions she could not earn Over ninety cents a week and a Stem landlord exacted seventh five cents a week for rent. The Story of her misery can better be depicted in Lier own homely but expressive language Quot i have these two Little girls to get a bite for and keep warm As Well As me8elf. Oil the other night Friday it was we were nearly perished we did not have any fire and o Kotlier How the wind and the could came through the cracks and we huddled together there in the bed Rne Seif and Tim children to keep Quot vibe in did you get the Coal you Are now burning a a �?�1 got it from Chardon Street Quarter of a ton.

Right Down at the slip of the North ferry where hundreds of people pass Dally ail old couple Luau and Wile were found who were actually suffering. The room in which they sat was filled with a collection of old articles of All descriptions. Iii the Coiner stood a Large old fashioned stove cracked Aud broken and without a particle of tire Iii it. Through the windows All i Okyn Aud stuffed with paper and rags the wind came in gusts and the dampness of the room made the atmosphere almost unbearable to the visitor even with thick overcoats and wraps. The old Man with Bent form and Haggard face was pacing the floor Aud striking ins fingers Iii his Endeavor to keep up the on filiation in ills old and weakened veins. In an adjoining room the partner of his sorrows bundled up in old rags was also walking the floor. A a no fire today in repeated the old lady in reply to the visitors suggestion.

Jus leave no alone Daf s All i As he was a Large muscular Man with a pair of big hands lits request was granted without Darley. Below Dover Street Between Shawmut Avenue and Tremont Street is a locally sacred to honest poverty. Nearly All styles of Lite Are found Here. Off the first floor Are Brussels carpets and mahogany furniture and up. Three flights Are Bare tenements and poverty All in toe same building. In one of these attics yesterday afternoon were an old Oue legged much Pedler and his two children. His wife lived in die same place with them until last summer when she was taken with typhoid fever aim carried to the City Hospital. A week later she was honed. It was growing dusk when the writer called and the old Man had taken off hts lint and overcoat and uns trapped his wooden leg Ami was Genius supper. It consisted of Hasty pudding amt molasses. While lie was rummaging around Iii Hie closet for the molasses can. The elder of the two children a hunchbacked boy about in years of age carefully so trod up the reluctant fire Wiki the Metal end of ills f Ither a wooden leg mid laughed to see the Sparks Fly. Quot do that St ii by. My stud i do that. Foo daddy can to go out if you hum up his leg a said the old Man very kindly. He was evidently very proud of that deformed Bov for he stopped to Tell the visitors of ills cunning pranks until the smell of scorched pudding recalled him to Tho Tat the it supper was c hiking. They have no Money to i de by a shake Down and no clothing but the poorest. The stove was a utile Sheet Iron affair such As tinkers use. Quot of people would omy buy my matches a chirped the old fellow stowing his wooden leg away under his Pillow so the children could not gel at it. A i would save in Money and buy a Grindstone Aud go out with it.

The husband and father had been killed in the War Ana the Mother by Industry has managed to Send the daughter la school until she has graduated from the High school Aud has now a position As Saleswoman Iii Oue it the Large retail dry goods houses. Her diploma hangs on the Wall of Tho Humble dwelling Aud Tho greatest Pride of the mothers heart is to Point to Tho diploma which proclaims the intellectual ability of her child. Tile $2 a week with perchance a few pennies eat Nett by the boy support the three of them. Several other cases of poverty borne of them worse than those above described were seen but it was apparent that they were brought about by a too frequent indulgence in Lite flowing bowl. The suffering a Sta lieutenant of the twentieth Mankik Limetta unit i family Iii extreme destitution to the it Lee k she once owned. On West second Street South Boston not far from the Corner of Dorchester Avenue resides in extreme destitution a very worthy and deserving family consisting of husband wife and two boys aged respectively 17 audio. The feeling of Pride inherent in men of decent character and a self consciousness of having deserved Well of the state Aud nation have kept the father of the mildly from bemoaning lits condition to friends and neighbors and of soliciting alms from the Cole often empty hand of Charity. When the hag of the Union was trampled beneath the feet of rebels and the integrity of Hie nation was imperilled this Man sacrificed everything that makes life pleasant Anil Home Happy a Loving wife and prattling babes donned the uniform of Hie Patriot and served until the army of Northern Virginia succumbed at appoint i Tox and the rebellion was at an end. Four Long years this Man served hts country and now broken Iii la Alth and Fortune he is left a prey to the merciless pangs of hts her. Two flights of dark stairs the hallway destitute of any kind of ventilation Lead to the apartments of this family no huh dirt or evidences of Domestic neglect were anywhere apparent the rooms being clean orderly Aud Well kept. A indeed we Are very poor a s of the wife Quot Aud have been in absolute want. We suffered Seft rely the past few Days from the cold Aud now ail the fuel we have is that Heap of Wood lying by the stove picked up by my Little boy since a a have you received any Ald from any charitable institution a a we have not received anything and dislike to a a for Charity. My husband you know tries to do a lit tie work but it does no to amount to much. He used to be a flue Strong Man and baffled $4 of to Day working at the carpenters Trade but that is a Good while a your husband was in the army was lie not?1 Quot yes. He was All through the War. At the beginning of die War he enlisted in the twentieth Massachusetts As a private Rose to to first sergeant and was mustered out of the service As second lieutenant Ile served All through the War from beginning to end. Ills health has never been Good since lie came Home he having contracted something which i think was chronic rheumatism since developed into paralysis. The disease to confined entirely to lits legs the other parts of his body being As Strong Aud healthy As Ever. His legs Are so weak Aud helpless a to be scarcely Strong enough to sustain is weight and yet he crawls about every Day Iii search of Wink. Hie Only place now where tie seems to be Able to get employment is at the provident Wood Vara in Charles Street. Ile sometimes goes there several Days in succession without getting anything to do. Dis labor is not of Muon account a he has to hold the stick on the horse with one band while tie saws with the other. When he works he receives ten cents an hour. It is a terrible exertion for him to get from lure to Charles Street by lie suffers uncomplaining by. add to our trouble the Ulvi St boy was taken sick with pneumonia some weeks ago Aud is hardly recovered the boy alluded to is Bright and intelligent and before lits sickness was employed As office boy by a Law Ai in on Devonshire sired. He is still Pale Aud feeble Aud unable logo out of doors. A i was afraid the poor boy would perish from the cold a continued me woman a Dur lug the cold Days that have passed. I had univ Twenty five cents when the cold snap Curie of and by what Little Coal i could buy tor that we have managed to keep from freezing i May 1883, he became totally Blind and since that time has been unable to work. add to his misfortune his wife during the past year has been confined to her bed w in Pulmonic troubles. When the fatties became Blind the two children both girls were taken from school and put to work. From the Small earnings of die children the Only support of the family is derived. They Are employed in a Candy manufactory in die oily proper. The Kotlier requires Tho constant attendance of a physician Aud has but a very Short time to live. The family is on the route of patrolman Stanchfield. Iii the rear of a mock on Sumner Street on the beat of patrolmen Burlil Aud durum lives a widow with six children. Tile oldest of the children is a daughter 21 years of age. The Oiler ave Range in Ages from 3 years 6 months to 12 years. In summer the daughter has lived out As a Domestic and contributed to the support of her younger Brothers and Sisters. Iii Winter she is required at Home to care for the Little ones. The mothers earnings Are obtained by washing cleaning and scrubbing and by doing whatever else she can Aud to do. Although Abe labors from morn the South end. A White Washer ouly bequest Hasty pudding diet for two weeks. Numerous narrow streets crowded with tenement Bouses Luau off front Harrison Avenue to Tho East after the Albany Bridge is crossed. Here Are hundreds of deserving people fighting for dear life and for their children who Are dearer than life to them. Most of them Are temperate and industrious. The trouble with them is that their famines Are larger than tin or pay and they cannot support them comfortably. It is in one of these densely crowded houses that an old coloured Knight of die Whitewash Brush resides. The cold weather had damaged his business. And he has been out of work for a few Days. Having Little Money he has lived on Oatmeal Mush for die past week. Last evening he bad Cut off Tbs Sud of Bis Brush Bandi and moved the boy from die bedroom out into the Kitchen and made up a Little bed for him beside tin stove in that Way i managed to keep him warm but surely i was afraid the cold would kill Quot has your husband Ever been a member of the grand army of the Republic a a a Ile joined it a number of years ago but. Not being Able to pay ins dues lie dropped it. They probably know nothing about our condition. I think the country ought to hell my husband More than any private institution for he lost his health pulls a has be Ever applied for a pension a a indeed a was the reply in atone of evident distil i. A the has had an application for a pension in Washington for years hut bears nothing from it As to Oue is interested in his the police authorities speak in the highest terms of this family. Further Down West second Street near i Corner of a a very Peculiar ease of destitution was found. In the basement of it Large Block occupying two rooms lives a woman who years ago owned Tho Block and also the two houses further along on the same Street. By descending a flight of stalls leading from the Street hallway Access is ban to the old lady a apartments. In a room with scanty furniture a mattress Iii Oue Corner covered Wall a lot of old rags serving for a bed Sal a decrepit old woman. The room was full of smoke and the l rickety old stove looked As if a touch would Knock it Over. No Ray of Sunshine Ever penetrates the dark fever Lanen atmosphere of tint room several feel below the level of die Street. The old womb a has but just risen from an eight weeks sickness and moves hum the room w la great Tiff Fleurty. Bite told her Story with faltering voice Aud evident emotion. A i have no Unev Aud no food a said she. A before i was taken sick i could go out and pick up a Little Wood and gather Coal at the dump Aud to a Little washing too. In that Way i managed to get along without suffering much. But now i can to do that Aud it it were not for die kindness of the neighbors i would Marse to death. I have Coal now. Sent to me a Day or two ago by a lawyer who used to manage my property in better Days. Did i own property tills Block and the next two Tood in my name at one tune. I bought this one Twenty live years ago Aud afterwards got control of me others. There were mortgages on them to be sure but i owned a Good part of them and i had three Good flue boys who were helping me to pay off the debt. Perhaps fou knew Baul of no of course you did no tie was a Tine Young mail 23 years old when he died a number of years ago. Well my children All died the hard times came on i could us to meet the interest Ami somehow or other i done to know How the property All slipped through my hauls Aud now i am Here in the condition in which you see me. A have i really suffered from hunger indeed i have. I Nave no appetite now and can eat nothing Bur. A utile nourishment that is carried to me by the two women entered while the old lady was talking evidently neighbors As they were nut in Street Aline. A Weh Iranlade you wont last Long Granny you wont have much longer to suffer a was the consoling salutation with which one of them greeted her. The old lady did no to seem a bit thankful for the gratuitous information. Quot when i came to this House to live a said the other woman fourteen years ago she Point or to the old lady owned this property now she is As poor As poor eau be she was a Good woman but the rest of us Here Aid so poor ourselves that we can to give much help to tiles Are not isolated eases of destitution but Are merely types of hundreds that exist in South Boston so say the officers attached to station j. Till night the Wolf cannot be driven away and her family has suffered even to the extent of starving they occupy two Small rooms on tile first floor and off on the second. Very cold nights the whole family Steep in the two lower rooms to keep from free Iii. In die rear of houses fronting on Everett Street up in the second Story of a dilapidated Woollen Structure lives a nun who was formerly employed i As a teamster has a wife and four Small children. For nine years lie has been unable to perform any labor during the w inter Mouths when his earnings Are most needed on account of Pulmonic afflictions. Charitable to leads have supported him during the past year. A greater part of the time he is confined to bus bed and ofttimes ins Little ones go supper less to sleep in Winter the family is obliged to occupy the Kitchen altogether the other rooms being uninhabitable. The route is covered by patrolmen Burrill and Durgon. Iii a place leading from Orleans the patrol of officer Mcmurray dwells an old mail and his aged wife. The Man. Whie health and strength lasted worked As a labourer. Two years ago last september to was stricken with paralysis Ami Ever since that time he has been Heinie. Savings that he had by hard work and steady frugality accumulated have now been entirely spent Ami lie is left destitute. He has neither children nor relatives. His wife is also helpless through Lier age and for them Tim future looks full of woe Anc misery. A bourbons to the a phrase that grates on Loyal Southern ears. Senators Butler Jones and Lamar on the feelings of their people. The country a administration their administration. At the Vav est end. A Brave Ell tie one armed wha Millport u father in consumption other mud nights. At a House on Chardon Street near Portland a particularly distressing Case was discovered. In a Little room no three dark narrow flights was found a Man Aud two children. Hie Man was in Tho last stages of consumption As his hollow checks Aud almost constant hacking cough clearly showed. Quot i was born a he said a in the North of Ireland. My wife died about three years ago leaving me with my three children. Tile youngest is 4 years old pointing to a Little one asleep in the Corner a Maud we Are dependent of what the eldest makes. He a 13 years old and makes perhaps twelve or thirteen cents a Day Seil lug papers. It Isnit a living lies just lost an Arm he a was run Over by a car in Bowdoin the officer accompanying the writer vouched for the truth of the statement Aud said that the Little fellow was out Selling papers within four weeks Atter the Dine the Accident took place. A thu was in the Hospital a continued die father a just three weeks Aud they had hard work to keep him there Tuat Long. His Arm was taken off near the shoulder. He does no to suffer much with it now but says he very cold a Maud who does the cooking a asked the officer. Quot do docs a replied Tho Man. Pointing to Tho second son a Bright looking child of ten Winters win was almost concealed from View by a Long apron. Hie room was quite As neat Aud clean As could be expected under the circumstances and it is doubtful if any Chari ably deposed person could visit it without feelings of die greatest pity tor its occupants. This undoubtedly deserving family can be assisted through patrolman ilor Gau of division 3. It is hardly within the province of a newspaper Man to express ail opinion on such subjects but the heightened color and unnaturally Bright eyes of the Young lady la questions in extremely pretty and modest appearing Young girl would seem to indicate perhaps a Graver pulmonary trouble than bronchitis. The room in Whit a the Trio were seen was scrupulously neat Aud clean Aud it was evident from the surroundings and from the diction of the head of the family that they had seen very much Bot Wash Niton december 22.�?several of Tho leading Republican and mugwump newspapers of die North Are trying to make trouble for the president elect by agitating die question of what recognition shall be Given the South by the new and no ii isl rat Ion. In the one hand it is asserted that the bourbons will be sent to the rear on the other that they will be Given undue prominence in Dis conduct of National affairs. Tile editors of newspapers which desire a continuance of sectional agitation aver that die South under a democratic admin a ration will resume her ancient supremacy in tile control of the government. The contrary statement dint bourbons Are to be ignored by governor Cleveland is almost As harmful to a healthy Public sentiment As the other. Southern democrats in Washington have for years looked Forward to a change Iii die National administration As the Only Means of forever putting an end to sectional division and strife. Bev wish to have ail Opportunity to show by actual test that their respect Ann affection tor the government of Tho United states Isas sincere As that of Tho victors in the War of the rebellion. It is Only natural that Southern senators and Lepresi Vanve. hesitate to express themselves for nubile lion now As to what they to it it Ink president elect Cleveland policy toward me South should be. Private conv a smitten held by tin Glori correspondent wan several of the leading Bouillon democrats in the Senate mid House indicates that lie South is perfectly w Illing to rest. Its claims tor of Loci ii recognition with governor Cleveland Ami to abide by his decisions Iii Tho premises. Tho views of senator both r id South Carolina who was a Confederate officer and who has been elevated by the Republican pres since tile War is a Type of the irreconcilable. I Reclaimable and unregenerate red a lilt Bourbon area fair of Impi of the opinions held by the great majority of Southern senator and representatives in Congress. Heator Huller said Quot i have the utmost Confidence in president Cleveland to give die to nth the political recognition to which she is entitled. The South Doe not demand o be Cabinet unfair or two or Auy Oiler number. She does not demand anything. I presume when governor Cleveland gels ready to make up his Cao Hiet its members will not All he taken from the Hast or the West or the South. Each geographical i Vistyn will be Given the representation to Winch it is fairly entitled. The South Wilt make to immodest nor inordinate request. Quot the Bouthern people pay their proportion of the fixes and Bear their share of the burdens Aud responsibilities of the government. They would like their share of its boilers and emoluments. I am perfectly contented to let tile president decide what those honors Ami emoluments shall he. Quot i see mat some of die Northern newspapers say that Nuder a democratic administration Lim South will control the government. Fetiu Emu who express such views nay the vast population. Intelligence and wealth of the North a very poor compliment. Under Ordinary circumstances one would hardly expect that die Small population of the Hoot ii should dominate the government of the people of Tho North and West. This might come to pass in the event that men of competence amt ability could not be found at the Noah but i do not believe that the prophets to w Hom i have alluded would he willing to concede Nils to be senator Jones of Florida said Quot i have been Iii die Benne nearly ten years Aud my greatest Hope during that Lime has been that we. Might have a democratic administration to put forever at rest this sectional Nightmare. Discussion of Lim subject now does nothing lint harm.
