OUR GREAT NEED.
Something for Wilmington 's Philanthropic
Something for Wilmington 's Philanthropic
Citizens to Ponder Over.
To the Editor of the Gazette: Sir —
Our people need a hospital for contagious
diseases, more particularly small-pox pa
tients. We cannot hope to be rid of small
pox lor any great length of time; we are too
the cities of Philadelphia and Balti
more. The weekly reports show that small
pox exists in the hospitals of said cities all
t! e time. Mechanics and laborers are con
tinually coming and going Irom our city.
These people come from all parts of the
United States and foreign countries. I
think it is clear to any and all persons who
will give this subject of traveling from placée
to place a careful investigation, that we are
likely to have the small-pox brought to our
city any day by this roving set of people.
Now the question Is, how
a hospital erected ? I believe most of our
tax-payers say, "Hold, enough; . no more
increase of the bonded debt of our city."
This being the feeling our city legislators
step* toward erecting such a
building; what are we to do? Fold our
hands, remain silent in regard to this im
portant matter and allow the reputation of
our city to become a by-word, and first class
working men shun us because we make
provision for them in case of emergency ?
Can we have a building without the aid of
our city legislators ? Undoubtedly we can.
The large manufacturing establishments In
our city owe it to the poor workingmen to
provide such a place for their comfort wheu
stricken down by this dreadful disease. I
believe that If a committee of our wealthy
could raise, say $25,000 in one week, which
would be ample to erect such a building as
The expense of maintain
ing the hospital could be borne by
the city. If some great conflagration or
some deadly disease were to visit, any of our
towns in this State aud the people were ren
dered homeless, with death aud starvation
staring them In the face, I ask how long
people to raise $25,000
or more, to relieve their wants aud save
them from death ? It would be done at once.
Our people, when aroused, are generous
toward suffering human!ly. What we want
at. this time Is some one or more of our in
fluential men to take this matter in hand
and agitate it as a measure of the greatest
Importance to all of our citizens, and do it
Delays are dangerous. By le
we to get such

we want now.
would it take
malning silent, and giving this subject
thought, and allowing things to move along
in the old ruts, may cost the business men
of this city $500,000 besides many lives.
Now, what will cause this loss ? I answer
fifty cases of small-pox in our city will do
it. Fifty cases at one time may cause five
hundred cases to exist before the disease
could be controlled. With a hospital pro
perly managed, thedisease can be kept under
control, and our city saved the humiliation
of becoming a pest house. New Castle
county can build a Court House, Alms
house, numerous expensive bridges and the
like, but our city will do nothing in this
matter. In other cities the people keep
ahead of the^county. They make the im
provements and do all things necessary to
cause the people to keep pace with this pro
gressive age. Who will agitate ibis subject
at once ? E. B. Frazer.

A Liberal Donation
The Neptune Library, au organization
t omposed of members of the Water Witch
Fire Company, have douated their stock of
books valued at $200 to the Neptune Social

by the determination of the fire company
to disband aud as their members belong to
the fire company and their room has always
been in the third story of the company's
bouse it was deemed better to donate the
books to tbe Social Club than to try to dis
pose of them at public sale.
