Committee Ordered to Take
Out Charter Not For
Profit at Once
Of Importance, Many Making
Short Talks Covering all
Phases of Situation at
A meeting of the subscribers to the
Highland County Hospital Association
was held at the Court House Friday
night. About 75 were present.
O. N. Sams was chosen chairman of
the meeting and Granville Barrere
The charter committee after much
discussion was instructed to go ahead
and Incorporate the Association on the
not for profit basis, carrying out the
plans as originally made as far as
Mr. Sams on taking the chair called
upon Dr. J. C. Larkln, who was secre
tary of the charter committee, to read
the minutes of the meeting of the
committee. Col. L. B. Boyd, who was
chairman of the committee, then
made a report of it's work. lie said
that they had had lawyers go to Co
lumbus and had taken all the steps
necessary towards securing a charier
except making the application ; that
prior to doing this they had had
members of their committee see the
members of the board of directors of
the old Hospital Co. ; that their mem
bers had reported that the Hospital
Co. by a vote of 3 to 5 had refused to
turn over to the Association the Hos
pital property and stock of the old
company as It had been understood
would be done. This action Col. Boyd
said left only three alternatives for
the members of the Association : First
Go ahead and take out a charter not
for profit and If possible buy building
of Hospital Co. at their price regardless
of amount of stock turned over; Sec
ond Take out charter not for profit;
have new cards sent to all who had
subscribed for the hospital asking
them to resubscribe and with funds
secured purchase and equip some other
bui ding for hospital purposes; Third
Abandon hospital project entirely,
assessing all subscribers 10 per cent,
of their pledge to pay expenses. '
Dr. A. H. Beam, president of the
Hospital Co., then made a talk. He
admitted that their board before the
campaign for raising funds had started
had passed a resolution to turn over
the property of the Company at cost
to the Association and also the stock
of the company. This action, he said,
they had since been informed by their
counsel was illegal and not binding;
that they had also been informed by
their counsel that they could not sell
their property to the proposed Associa
tion until it had taken out a charter ;
that they were following advice of
counsel and would continue to do so
and would stand on their legal rights.
J. W. Watts, Daniel Morgan, George
L. Garrett and Dr. W. H. Shields then
made talks inwhich they urged the
going ahead with the Hospital move
ment. Dr. J. C. Larkln in a short
talk said that he, as one of the physi
cians of Hlllsboro, stood ready to
cooperate and assist the people In the
securing of a hospital on whatever
plan they considered advisable.
Upon motion of J. W. Watts, second
ed by Dr. Shields, the charter commit
tee was Instructed to take out a char
ter for the Highland County Hospital
Association. The charter to be not
for profit and that as, soon as this was
done that the question be again put
up to the Hospital Company to see
whether they would keep faith with
the people or stand on a legal techni
cality. The meeting then apjourned.

Mr. Morrow said that he came to

the entire community.
During the 12 years just elapsed, he
stated that he believed it was a con-
servativo estimate to say that $150,000
had been expended in the erection of
comfortable and commodious homes.
He then read a list of a number of
the prominent members of the Asso
ciation who had married since 1000
and when he came to Dr. J. C. Larkln
