Governor Hastings Yesterday Approved
the Bill Granting That Amount.
Local Help Needed.
i,a to 'yesterday afternoon Governor
Hastings approved the 1)111 appropriat
ing $7,000 for the West Side hospital.
This waa the amount allotted tlio In
stitution by the state bmird of charities
Fomo time ago, hut the governor did
not attach Ills signature to the hill
until he received a dispatch from Wil
liam B. Gill, yesterday at noon.
Mr. Gill Is a member of the state
board of charities, and visited the hos
pital yesterday In company with Kee
prsentatlvo John R. Farr and Dr. W.
E. Palno. He was well pleased with
the institution and Its work and tele
graphed the governor that the scope of
the work was only limited by its
means. Ho informed the executive
that the hospital has a large field for
good work and fully warranted the ap
propriation. This nmount will only ap
ply to maintenance, and now that the
state authorities have seen fit to grunt
the hospital relief, it Is to bo hoped
that there will be some liberal endow
ments made by friends of the hospital
and Its promoters. Colonel II. M.
I Soled, who is also a member of the
state board of charities, recently vis
ited the institution and was agreeably
surprised and pleased at its work and
the need of such an Institution on this
side. He also telegraphed the gover
nor Inst week, regarding the necessity
of the appropriation, and his tclogi-am
was referred to yesterday afternoon at
a conference which was held at the
state cnpitol between Governor Hast
ings, Attorney General McCormlck,
Senator J. C. Vaughn and Dr. M. J.
Williams, of this city. The latter gen
tlemen went to Harrisburg expressly
for the purpose of conferring with the
executive regarding the appropriation.
Dr. Williams returned last night from
Harrisburg and spoke In the highest
terms of the treatment received at the
hands of the governor, and the Inter
est nmnlf?sted in the hospital by Gov
ernor Hastings. The appropriation is
particularly pleasing to the promoters
of ths Institution.

LETTERS FR0A1 THE PEOPLE.
lUnder this heading short letters of In
terest will bo published when accompa
nied, for publication, by the writer's
name. Tho Tribune -will not bo hold re
sponsible for opinions here expressed.
Mr. Doty Has n Complaint.
Editor of Tho Tribune.
Sir: May I be permitted a word through
your columns concerning the transfer sys
tem in operation by the Traction co;n
pany a long suffering public may well'be
supposed to have a word to say.
It has been bad enough for the. past few
months, and now new hardships are to be
Imposed on the p.trons of the electric
cars by the managers of the system. Fre
quently have I been obliged to tsko a
transfer at Medlson avnue and Mulberry
street from tho Petersburg to the Laurel
Hill line, and It has been all the same in
dead of winter with the thermometer
nearly down to zero, In rainy weather, or
summer hoat. There Is no provision thero
for comfort of any description. It would
have been an accommodation to have
been permitted to take a transfer on Lack
awanna avenue, where one could havo
found shelter and protection from tho
cold. But the management care llttlo
for the accommodation of thoso who must
patronize their cars.
Again at a recent gathering at Nay Aug
park, several West Side people, among
them women and children, taking the car
from the park during a drenching storm
wero carried to North 'iln avenuo nnd
Swotland street, before transfers could
be obtained and then, notwithstanding
tho rain was still falling, those women
and children were hurried off the car to
wait the cars on other Hyde Park lines.
And hero let mo say no shelter was pro
vided. However, by walking to Clarke's
store a number wero able to find shelter.
Now that privilege Is to be denied them
and they must stand out on tho corner
where the management chooses to put
them off and wait, and wait an Indefinite
tlmo for the car to come and itake them
on to their destination.
And the reason for Imposing all this is
found in tho fact that some clorks either
have, or are suspected of having, ex
changed transfers. It Is time this system
of perpetrating an outrage on the public
hould cease. The company has recourse
at law to punish any who may defraud It,
and therefore why punish tho multltudo
who have never broken faith with tho
company? Yours truly, F. P. Doty.
Scranton, July 20.
Editor of Tho Tribune.
Sir: In this morning's paper you ten
us that tho Traction company are again
making a change with respect to trans
fers. Why do they not give us a three
cent fare and abolish tho transfer alto
gether? It would pay them well and thero
would bo no risk of their foolng cheated
by any one on that lino. Yours truly,
City, July 2C.
