Lodging houses are licensed, and workshops in the tenements likewise, to secure efficient control of them. If that is not secured in the case of the workshops, as it is not, it is no fault of the plan, but of the working out of it.

But it ought to make it easier to get the grip on them that has been wanting heretofore, to our hurt.
