DEEP CONSIDERATION ASKED
Better Ambulance Service in

Has tlio timq come when tho growth
of Honolulu demands nn increase in hospital

Republican oandidato for mnyor, believes
that tho time is fast approaching
when tho Queen's Hospital will bo

it and that it is tho duty of thoso who
will shortly bo in control of tho city
government to consldor tho question ot
tho cstnblishmont of a municipal hospi

tho noccssity of caring for tho indigent
sick nud allowing it to expand as required
for pay patlonts. Colonol Parker

is prepared to rccommond a careful consideration
of tho question.
I( Heretofore there has boon opposition
'to tho municlpnl hospital suggestions
because it has been thought that
to establish another hospital would bo

of an expensive concern," bo Bays.
"Tho Queen's Hospital has been and is
