Excerpt from The Battle With the Slum

Three years ago I published under the title A Ten Years' War a series of papers intended to account for the battle with the slum since I wrote How the Other Half Lives. A good many things can happen in three years. So many things have happened in these three, the fighting has been so general all along the line and has so held public attention, that this seems the proper time to pass it all in review once more. That I have tried to do in this book, retaining all that still applied of the old volume and adding as much more. The stories were printed in the Century Magazine. They are fact, not fiction. If the latter, they would have no place here.
