AUXILIARY TO REORGANIZE.
Women Who Withdrew from Hospital to
Bestow Favors Elsewhere.
The members of the disbanded auxiliary of the
Metropolitan Hospital and Dispensary met yester
day afternoon at the home of their frmer presi
dent, Mrs. t'amllle Btrnbohm, and received bids f"r
their futurs services. Dr. Mark Knapp pleaded
tor help for a clinic for diseases of the stomach,
which he wishes to establish, and Mrs. 'William
Grant Brown presented the claims of the Pascal
Institute. Mrs. Paul Meyrowltz rut 1n a word for
the Riverside rtiy Nursery, and Pr. E. C Schaver
outlined the needs of the Piwlps Settlement, in Bast
2ith-6t. Miss Leah Barbe suggested the formation
of an auxiliary to the Stony Wold Sanatorium. No
derision was reached, but th«s feeling ©f the meet
ing appeared ro be In favor of the Pascal In-

ourselves, I suppose." raid Mrs. Meyrowltz, after
Mrs. Brown had completed th« argument for the
"And we rwild hay« a dance without asking per
mission?" added Jdra. 8. li. Sciienck.
"You could do exactly as you liked," answered
Mrs. Brown. "All we want is that you should turn
the money you make over to the Pascal Institute."
The auxiliary, having <ilsband»-d because of a dis
agreement with the trustees of the Metropolitan
Hospital about methods of money making, the
women are naturally anxious to have no room for
farther misunderstanding on this point.
The final choice of an institution to be worked
for will be made at the next meeting, when the
women will reorganiss, elect officers and take a
name. They have decided to have two depart
ments, one social and the other philanthropic, the
former to be known as the cotillon and unique
■■— mliHtt. The object of the latter will be simply
the amusement of the members, and no attempt
will be made to make money out of it.
The w-m«-n say that they have worked together
so loiik that they do not wish to separate. Hence
t::*lr desire to find another object for their united
efforts. They als> say that only two members of
the old auxiliary, instead of thirty, as has been
stated, have gone over to the new one, and that
these two had resigned some time before the lat<j
unpleasantness. There were twelve present ut
WORK OF WESTERN CLUBS.

en Far Behind Sisters of the West.
"The Western club Idea is very different from
that of New-York," paid Miss Sadie American at
a meeting of New-York Council of Jewish Women
in Temple Ema:;u-El yesterday afternoon. Instead
of a lot of small flubs, each devoted to a single
purpose, the Western women, &he said, have large
clube, combining under one head different depart
ments, such as child labor, suffras*-, literary, social
and trade unions. In this co-operative way they
do more effective work than if each were pursuing
its course alone.
Miss American made a plea for fund? for the

which gave property valued at $1,000,000. or
more to her adopted son.

cured by the undue Influence of Horace chase.
Of the adoption of Deforest "Woodruff Chase

that in obtaining It Dr. Chase had perpetrated
a fraud <>n the court
I»r. Chase waa a widower, and Deforest
