Dr. MeGlymi was reeeived with the usual otxtburst of applause. He said it was now time for rent-payers to band together and refuse to pav more than house hire. "Let 0,UÜ0 people refvue to pay ground rent and take the course oí' eviotion," said he. "Tüere are only eight justice courts in New York, and it v.uüld talce a long time to go bhrough all the eviction trials. UeanwhKe the people would be enjoy ing f ree rent and eventuaüy tlie landlords would come to ternis. Try this first in a single bloi-U," the doctor suggested, "and let us all pledge ourselvas to see tbat no tenant is witaout shelter. The tenement-bouse market would sooq come down."
