THE HOSPITAL MOVEMENT.
Special Committee Submits Report
Another Meeting Next Monday

('1nimelT r00ns tO hen)ifier 1i*e i
pr thel to be slbmitted by the sp
cial committee appointed for the pu
pose on the question of the establis]
ment of a hospital, was not largely a
tended. The report of this commi
tee, however, was submitted. and
was decided to hold another ineetir
on Monday night. September 23.
the same place at S o'clock.
In order that the people may be
possession of the report of the speci
committee on this subject, this r
porn is herewih given in full.
This is an important matter,
seems to us, to this community, ar
we regret that more of our people ai
not taking interest in the matter. IN
should think the recommendation
the committee as to the formatio
of a joint stoek empany is the prop(
thing to do, and it would be well
the several fraternal organizations i
the city would also adopt the sugge!
tions contained in the report, to mah
tain wards for patients, who ai
members of these several organiz
tions and who may not be in finai
cial'position to undergo the expew
of hospital treatment.'
The following is the report:
Mr. Z. F. Wright,
President of Chamber of Commere
Your committee appointed to i
vestigate.the subject of a hospital f<
Newberry ask leave to submit the fo
1. We are of the opinion that it
important and highly desirable th,
a hospital be erected in the Town
Newberry: but we do not think th,
the town is at present able te four
and maintain a public hospital.
2. It is our estimate, based on ii
formation received from various sou
ces, that a hospital with capacity f<
thirty (30) patients, and adequa
for our present needs, could be eree
ed at a cost ranging from $7,000
$10,000, and equipped at a cost ran
ing from $1,000 to $3,000. This est
mte includes heating outfit, wate
works, lights, and electric bells. Tl
cost of equipment can be reduced
a minimum by the cooperation of o1
3. The minimum cost of maintai
ing and operating the hospital wou
probably be in the neighborhood
$2500 a year. But if the instituti<
is managed in such a way as to cor
mend it to our physicians and the
patients, this cost will be largely m
by the fees of private patients: a
we are confident that the local churc
es and fraternal organizations can1
induced to maintain wards for eha
ity pat:ients. A hospital in sueces
ful operation and enjoying the con:
dence of the community ought so<
to become virtually self-supportiri
4. We are of- the opinion that
ought to be practicable to erect
hospital by the formation of a joi:
stock company for the purpose. V
suggest that the capital stock 'shou
be $15.000, divided into six hundr<
(600) shares of thae par value of $25.1
each, and that the stock should1
distributed throughout the county
widely as possible, so as to enlist tl
largest possible interest. This sto
should not be expected to pay di'
dends in the niear future, but shou
be subscribed out of a spirit of ben
volence by those who are willing
make contributions for the relief
5. We recommend that a committ
be appointed at once to serve as cc
porators and take the necessary ste
to organize a joint stock compan
for the erection and maintenance
a hiospital. with a capital stock of $1
000 divided into six hundred (60
shares of the par value of $25.

Coburn's Greater Minstrels Wili
>n Open Season at City Opera House
ir Thursday September 26.
et -The theatrical season at the Capital
dtheatre was formerly opened last
hnig'ht by the presentation of J. A.
eCoburn 's Greater Winstrels, which is
r-I the'ecompany succeeding to.the name
sand fame of the great Barlow Min
strels. And it might be added after
nwitnessing their splendid perfor
it mance last night that if anything,
it Mr. 'Coburn has collected a trbupe of
Sartists who are if anything, still bet
ter in their presentation than was
ld ever the great Barlo.w company..
With his sextet of fun makers
dDan Holt, Billy Morris, Joe Dun
3leavy, Tommy Galvin, Billy Cummins
be and Roy Peek, Mr. Coburn has a team
as that would be hard to duplicate in
any company, and should prove a
. good mine to him during the season.
From start to finish these "funny
ldmen" had the audience on the wing
'with them and kept them convulsed
to throug.hout. The theatre was packed
to the doors for this first presentation
and everyone after the curtain had
ee rung down on the elosing number had
r- something nice to say of the show.
ps The numerous feature of the min
.y, strelsy is not the only strong point
oshown last night, however, for few
iplays of any charaeter have ever been
Sseen here which presented such an
3 bundaee of' high munsic. Several of
nthe sog were of the most appealing
he ('ha ract er, and went ight to the heart
Eof the audience.
The jokes offered were out of the
ordinarxi-they were clean and new
and as such came as a sweet refresh
ing shower where so many chestnuts
have grown .stale and dried being
handed out from time to time.
For the olio part of the perform
t.. ance, the two strong men entitled
ty. Jules and Marzon were par excellent,
ib- doing stunts of strength and dexter
>rs ity never seen here before. Every.
one praised their work, and in fact
L. was well pleased with every feature
of the second part.
ng Mr. Coburn is a manager who un

at. his company up to its present high
'standard will keep right in the front
