Mr. SAltcr acted as secretary. Presi

of tho first meeting a showing of tho
status of tho building proposition.
AThoro was nn nggregato membership

On motion tho report was accepted.
President Hasslngcr quoted minutes
of meetings ngaln to show that cot
tages for accommodating at least twen
ty peoplo each could bo built for $750
each, Including a cook house, etc., tho
estimate being from tho lowest bid of
builders, which was by Mr. Craig.
Mr. Eckhardt wanted this meeting to
nuthorlzo tho commlttco to go abend
with tho erection ot a building on tho
given basis. Ho mado a motion ac
cordingly, Which was not seconded.
Mr. Dee objected that tho commlttco
had no detailed estimate.
President Hasslngcr suggested that
tho coramltto could get plan and
Dr. Sinclair thought thero was no
need to be In a hurry. The Doard of
Health was putting up better buildings
than woro contemplated by this organi

Mr. Magoon was not in favor of
erecting a building. Still ho would
leave, it to tho Judgment of tho com

Dr. Sinclair said It ought to bo con
sidered whether It would not bo nd
vlsablo to erect ono cottago Just now.
It would bo well to havo a house, of
their own for any emergency.
Mr. Eckhardt said tho object was not
so much to relieve tho Government
they all know it was doing as much as
it could but that tho fraternal socle
ties should have a placo ot their own
whero they would bo cared for by
brothers rather than paid servants of
tho Doard of Health.
Mr. Magoon asked if their members
would not be allowed to attend tholr
own peoplo In tho houses being provid
ed by tho Board of Health.
Col. Soper seconded Dr. Sinclair's
motion, but with an amendment, ac
cepted by tho mover, that the estimates
lncludo kitchen equipment, baths, etc.
President Hasslngcr combated tho
idea of thero being no emergency in
tho matter. Ho feared dangor of a re
newed outbreak of tho plague from in
fection by belongings of peoplo car
ried out of Chinatown. Tho Board ot
Health would reservo no accommoda
tion for tha fraternal societies.
The motion carried without dissent
President Haslngcr said it had been
