New York, Nov. 11 In pursuit of
their dealre to assist tbe poor and up
lift the depraved, Robert Hunter and
his wife, the daughter of tbe multi
millionaire Anson Phelps Stokes, have
forsaken their country residence In
Noroton, Conn, and their mansion in
Madison avenue, for a small brick
house in Grove street, on the lower
west side. Both have devoted several
years to work In the slums and were
married two years ago while Mr. Hun
ter, formerly of Chicago, was In charge
of the University settlement
The decision to settle In Grove street
was made after long atudy of the con
ditions In the lowly quarters of the
Doth Mr. and Mrs. Hunter have in
timate knowledge of the east side and
for a long time they were inclined to
moke their home there. But their in
vestigations led them west of Wash
ington square and In and around Mln-
etta lane they found the best demand
for the work they bad In mind.
For more than two generations this
section has been looked upon aa one of
the blots on the city. The place never
Is without a patrolman, one being de
tailed especially for duty In the street,
little more than S00 yards In length.
Formerly the lane was the center of
the red light district, but since the
movement up town the red lights have
disappeared, and In their stead have
come filthy houses. In the last couple
of years tenement houses of the ac
cepted east side model have begun to
replace the low. old fashioned brick
structures, and this has made more
preening the demand for the Judicious
settlement work. The mission work
era say the district Is now In more
need of attention from the charitable
and the sympathetic rich than any
other quarter In Manhattan.
An Orchestra of Murderers.
At the French penal colony, Noumea,
New Caledonia, the convicts have or
ganised a band. The leader Is a no
torious murderer and was once In the
orchestra of the Paris opera house.
The cymbal player killed a subpoena
server, and the drum player has murd
ered his landlady with a hammer. The
first cornet Is guilty of murder, with
robbery as the motive, and one of the
clarinets, a tavernkeeper, used to kill
his natrons for the same reason. The
assistant bandmaster wos convicted of
having cut his wife to pieces. This
convict band gives dully concerts to
the Inhabitants of Noumea, . who are
enthusiastic over the new organisation.
