Providence Hospital to Have One
of the New Buildings.
CONTRACT SIGNED YESTERDAY
.Cost- of Construction to Be Paid
From llie Congressional Appro
priations Space Reserved for
JPoor rntieiits Terms of the
Agreement "With Commissioner's.
As Traa predicted In The Times some
time ago ProvideuCe Hospital ia to have
one of the isolating wards provided for
in a recent act of Congress, as a substitiu.0
for the contagious disease hospital, and
work on the new building will be begun im
mediately. The contract providing for the
, erection of the isolating ward aH an a"d
junct to the hospital waa signed by the
the Commissioner, and by Sister Superior
lipatrice, representing the institution, yes
terday. Thelocatlon of these wards lias longbeen
a iierplexlng question with the Conihila
eioncrH. It was first proposed by Congress
to erect a Mnglr iwspltal for the treat
ment of contagious diseases, but -.vlierever
the Oommlhrioneis pitched upon a site, a
storm of protests immediately arose from
the residents in thr vicinity, s,o that the
project had eventually to be abandoned.
The plan of two isolating wardn attached
to hospitals already existing was then hit
upon. When Providence Hospital was first
suggested only one property owner pro
tested against the location of the ward,
but the trustee have since purchased this
Juan's lot, so that now there, is practically
For me pant three years the hospital has
been caring for cases of contagious dis
eases under some disadvantage. The
nature of the diseases was such
that it would not do to put these
patlfntt In the general wards, but by the
thoughtfulneM of Sister Beatrice, when the
stable was built the rooms above were
made large enough and finished for the
purpose of receiving and caring for such
patient in case of emergency
These rooms now contain slty-flve cases,
who hae been needing better accommoda
tion for some time.
The Commissioners have not yet se
lected the hospital which is to have charge
of the second isolating waid.
The contract approved yesterday pro
vider that the hospital authotltics snail
erect upon its grounds an isolating build
ing or ward, to be built without expense
to the institution, but the cost to be paid
out of the appiopriatlon provided for In
the District appropriation bill approved
March 3. ISO". The plans for the build
ing are to be furnished by the Commis
sioners and npproved by the health office.
The hospital, on its side, agrees that
two thuds of the entire" capacity of the
building shall be reserved for such poor
patients as shall be sent to It from time
to Ume by the Commissioners. For each
such patient the District Is to pay at the
rate .-f $250 per year for Fuch time as the
patlcrt shall be in the hospital.
It Is further arranged that persons able
to pay for treatment may make such ar
rangements Tor entering the building as
shall be determined by those in charge,
that they shall pay to the hospital a tea
son able compensation, to be fixed by the
trustees, but shall have the privilege of
selecting their own physician and nurses
They musr, however, pay such doctors and
nurses if they arc not of the hospital staff
And Providence Hospital agiees to alwayd
maintain a neutral zone of forty feet around
the isolating building.
Df. W. C. Woodward, of the health de
partment, said that the matter had been
arranged satisfactorily to all parties con
cemed; that the survey and architect's
plans would be made at once, with the
hope of finishing the building for the
reception of patients before cold weather.
DKPUTY SEALER ArPOIXTED.
Probability Thnt Mr. "MulleD'S Po
sition Iny Be 3Inde Permanent.
"William 11. Mullen was yesterday tern
porarily appointed assistant to Acting
Sp'aler of Weights and Measures Miller,
the appointment to be for the remainder
of 'the present month.
It will te remembered that "W. C.
Haskell, who received the appointment
as sealdr, asked for a month's time before
qualifying, and that Mr. Miller, who had
been appointed deputy f-ealer, was directed
to act as sealer until such time as Mr.
Hatkcll should qualify. Subsequently :t
,vas learned from a friend of Mr. Haskell
that the latter considered the place to
which he had been appointed too small
for the polltlral rervlces he had rendered,
and that he was using the month to con
sider whether he should accept It.
The month for -which Mr. Haskell asked
is up on the first proximo, and if he should
decide to refuse, the office, It is probable
that Mr Miller will continue as sealer and
Mr. Mullen's temporary appointment as
deputy sealer will be made permanent.
TTANT TO SUCCEED DAVIS.
AtnbiiiouK Aspirants for the Dis
trict Attorney's Office.
A dead set for the office of United
States attorney for the Dlstrictof Columbia
iias been made bv Alphonro Hart, formerly
of Ohio, and Charles M. Smith, of Washing
ton. Tlies two lawyers have received in
formation to the effect that the President
will, in October, appoint a successor to
Henry E Davis, the Democrat who worked
so hard to elect Mr. McKinley, and they
each want to be that successor.
It is said that Hart It, being backed by
the youuger members of the District bar,
and that Smith is the favorite of the older
ones. Each of the aspirants is considered
to be an excellent lawyer and qualified
to fill the position. While this going on
Mr. Davis is sadly becoming aware of "the
ingratitude of Republics."
A Rcmarltable Cure of Chronic
"In JSC2, when I Eerved my country
as a private in Company A, One-hundred
and sixty-seventh Pennsylvania Volunteers,
I contracted chronic diarrhoea. It baa
given me a great deal of trouble ever
Bincc. I have tried a dozen different
medicines and several prominent doctors
withont any permanent relief. Not long
ago, friend sent me a sample bottle
of Chamberlain's Colic, Cnolera and
Diarrhoea Heniedy, and after that I bought
and took a50-cent bottle; and now I
can say that I am entirely cured. I
cannot be thankful enough to. you for
this great remedy, and recommend it to

Important Changes Embodied in the
Set of Amendments Drawn "Up Yes
terday and Submitted to the Cy
cling Public "Wheelmen Gener
ally "Will Approve Them.
The Commissioners have drawn up a
set of changes In the police regula'ions
affecting vehicles, with especial regard lo
the need of bicyclists, and if they are
found satisfactory to the majority of tlic
riders will probably adopt them They
are as follows:
That sections 5 "and 30 of Article X
of the police regulations of tlw District
of -Columbia are hereby amended to as
to read as follows:
Section 5. As a general rule, every ve
hicle in motion on a public highway tliull
keep on the right side thereof Pennsyl
vania avenue shall be considered as two
streets, separated by the car tracks, but
the general movement or vehicles tncreon
shall be subordinated to the busur.'ss of
the shops and stores.
Every vehicle when passing another ve
hicle facing or moving in the opposite di
rection shall pass to the right; but In pass
ing another vehicle moving in the mine
direction shall pass to the left. Every
vehicle turning to the lelt into an inter
secting street shall leave a Miff IcieiiL clear
space between It and the left hand curb
to permit the afe passage of another ve
hicle. Every vehicle in turning a turner
to the right shall keep to the Ight of
the center of the street.
No driver of any vehicle with a draft
animal attached shall so drive as to rowd
any person on a bicycle on or against
the curb of the street, or on or against
any other vehicle or object 'a i,uch street,
or off or over any embankment, or into
any aperture or depression.
Section 30. No bicycle hliall be pro
pelled across any Intersecting street on
which there are car-tracks In the city of
"Washington at a greater rate of speed than
six miles an hour; nor at a greater rate of
speed between Intersecting stn-ets and ave
nues or across street on which there are
no car lines than twelve miles per hour;
nor at a greater rate of speed on any
public street or roadway outsloe of said city
than flfteen miles per hour. Every bicycle
on a public highway Miall at all times be
under the control of the rider. Elders of
bicycles on public highways must not sit
with their heads and bodies bowed down
so as to thereby expose themselves or
others to hazard of injury.
No more than three persons mounted upon
bicycles or similar vehicles shall ride
abreast on any public highway.
These proposed regulations have been
framed with reference to the suggestions
made in a hearing recently given by the
Commissioners to a delegation from Mio
L. A. AV.
Before passing them finally, howeer,
the Commissioners desire to know whether
in the shape they now are the regulations
will be approved by the wheelmen, and so
have ordered them published with a view
of Inviting criticism and suggestions.
