SPRING COAT IN ITS NEW STIAPFL
.UIEAD OF DATE HOSPITAL-
NEW CLINIC BUILDING OF ST. BAR
THOLOMEW'S PARISH HAS NOVEL
AND INTERESTING FEATURES
Mrs. Caroline C. Hoagland Is the generous river
of the new building at Nos. 215 and 217 East Forty
second-st. for the clinic connected with the parish
work of St. Bartholomew's Church, which will be
opened for Inspection to-day.
John M. Young, the chairman of the building
committee, said yesterday to a Tribune reporter:
"The clinic work was instituted about ten years
ago in an old house close, to the parish house, in
East Forty-second-st., to meet the needs of the
people in the vicinity. So many were In want of
medical and surgical service, whose condition, nev
ertheless, was not so serious as to require admis
sion to a hospital, that the cilnlc was established tv
the treatment of ordinary Illnesses and diseases of
the. eye, ear. nose and throat. Minor surgical oper
ations also were conducted.
"The work grew so that for some years the old
quarters have been painfully Insufficient, and one
of our members who has taken a deep Interest In
the work decided to give us the beautiful building
that will open a new era In our parish work. The
architects have put into It every new improvement
known to sanitary science, bo that it is not only
up to date, but in some particulars might even ba
called ahead of. date."
There are six stories in the building, which liberal
fpacc permits an ample supply of sterilizing, ether
izing, waiting, operating and other necessary
The main entrance from Forty-second-st. is
placed at about the centre of the front, and la
elaborate decorated and carved. The whole first
t-tory is of Indiana limestone, and the entrance
porch is treated as the most Important part of th*
whole design. The doors are of heavy bio.-ize, with
rich decoration in cast bronze on the lower panel*.
At the rteht of the vestibule is the directors'
room, and at the left the superintendent's suite.
consisting of an outer space for clerks' use and an
inner private office.
Back of the clerk's desk is a detention rcrom for
the reception of contagious diseases. This room
communicates through a separate exit with the
street, in order to avoid a suspected case coming in
contact with other patients or attendants.
A large waiting room, capable of accommodating
about one hundred, occupies the central portion of
the floor. On the east side of the waiting room are
•:,• stairway and elevator.
The second, third and fourth stories are devoted
to the purposes of the clinic, containing rooms for
patients recovering from surgical operations, as
well &b examination and treatment rooms for gen
era.l medical cj.ses.
One gets a hint of the prevalence of diseases
of the eye in such neighborhoods from the largo
provision made for the oculists and opticians.
Portions of the fourth and fifth stories are ar
ranged for the nurses and hospital staff, and a
?art of the sixth story is given up to a large read
ing room communicating with the parish house, and
having no connection With the Clinic. The remain
der of the floor space is utilized for a pathological
A large roof warden, having no communication
with the clinic, is placed on the front roof for use
by the parish house.
The light courts are arranged on the rear and
both sides of the ding, bo that all rooms have
external light and air.
The structure is thoroughly fireproof, having cast
iron columns and steel beams and girders Floors
ceilings and partitions are of steel and cor. Jr. te, and
ro wood appears In the entire building. Copper
cashes and door frames, kalsondned iron and stone,
Bteel and vitrified tiling take Its place.
Another feature Is the absence of angles and pro
jections that might serve as lodging places for dust.
Walls and ceilings meet in a curve. From floor to
wall is another curve. Stairs melt Into curves, and
even the window casings show no angles.
All the walls are of white tile, with a decorative
wainscoting cf blue tiling five feet high, so that the
effect throughout is delightfully fresh and pretty,
in addition to furnishing the best possible surface
for cleansing. Especial care has been taken in th«
construction of the operating rooms. The room for
more important operations, on the .fifth floor, is
considered the most perfect yet built. The corners
of the room are rounded to a large radius and the
celling is domed.
All furniture used in the building Is of steel from
special designs, Rnd of unusually exact and careful
workmanship, ail finished in white enamel to corre
spond with the walls and ceilings of the Interior.
The furniture comprises a wide variety of Instru
ment cases, cabinets, tables, stands, wardrobes,
bureaus, washstands, chairs, benches, etc.
The exterior has been treated in a manner to In
dicate that it is a part of and belongs to die build
ings of St. Bartholomew's Church, which now oc

There are majiy advantages about tbe restaurant
business for a woman who is a competent house
keeper. The ca;>it.'!' necessary Is small, and your
income begins with the tirst customer. It pays
well, too. One secret of success is knowing how to
make left-overs Into pretty litt;-- dishes. I never
waste anything. The profits on each customer may

RECIPES FOR SUMMER DTFT.
HINTS FROM A NEW VEGETARIAN COOK
BOOK FOR THOSE WHO EAT
The hlfjh price of meat, the general tendency to
reduce the quantity of flesh In the diet, and the
approach of th» summer season, which naturally
calls for cooling and easily prepared foods, all
afford an opportune time for the appearance of a
new vegetarian cook book. Accustomed as people
of this and European countries are to a piece de
resistance which shall comprise a heavy, savory
dish, it is not the easiest thing in the world for the
housewife to eliminate meat from her m.'nus. and
to provide in place of it foods that .'<re equally
nutritious and toothsome.

ELECTRIC FOUNTAIN TO GO.
AX AQUATIC DISPLAY WILL BE PITT IN
Many persons in Brooklyn and Manhattan
will Ijp disappointed to hear that Park Com
missioner Young of Brooklyn and Queen 9 has
decided to abandon the elpctrio fountain in the
Prospect Park plaza, which cost the city .525.000.
and put In the basin an aquatic display. The
fountain, which Is the only nnt» of its kind in
this city, and the largest and finest in the coun
try, is to be allowed to deteriorate through dis
use because the Park Commissioner has decided
that the Water Department mlpht limit him in
the use of water, because he fears that the gath
ering of a crowd to look at It might work some
little damage to a few grass mounts around the
edges of the plaza, and because the wealthy
residents in Plaza-st and Kighth-ave. and the
immediate neighborhood hav»> opposed the re
newal of the electric fountain displays, on the
ground that the crowd which gathered there
When Commissioner Young was seen by a
Tribune reporter yesterday he said that at first
he thought of resuming the operation of the
electric fountain and gave the subject careful
attention. His reasoni for abandoning the
fountain he gave as follows:
The water supply of the l.orous*h Is so limited
that I am afraid wo could n«>t g»-t enough water
to operate the fountain except one or two evon
ings a week. At other tirms it would be in
operative and unattractive. Then the displays
attracted a great crowd of people, who broke
down the shrubbery, and we would have to get
extra police to preserve the park property. In
addition to this. I receive iru»ny complaints from
people living in proximity to tn>- plaza about the
annoyance caused by the crowd.
After careful consideration, I d»ctded to use
the basin for a more permanent exhibition.
which would exist continuously and create there
th'- finest possible display of aquatic plants.
This will be done ns 5..«.n at the weather per
mits. It will be a beautiful feature of the park
system both day ami night lam also going to
set out small trees and plnnts around the park
basin, and I hope that when it is done it will
give pleasure to a greater number of people than
the electrical display. This will be 8 benefit
rather than a de&im-nt to park property.
Commissioner Young said thai he had not
asked th>- Water Department if it would raise
any objections to a resumption of the fountain
displays this year. In the summer of IHJtS then*
was an approach to ,n water famine and this
condition was repeated in IBWJ and \'.MM) Strict
measures were taken to husband the supply of
water Fountains all over the borough were
Stopped and other restrictive measures adopted.
Last \.ar there was plentj of rain, and the
reservoirs were Riled to the limit "t their ca-'
parity, and there was little effort made to stop,
the waste of water Hundreds of fountains are,
now in operation day anil night tn Brooklyn
which use more water than *he electrical display
The formal opening of the fountain on
August ■_'•"■. 18UT, was the occasion for the
gathering ><T a l;ir«e. number of well known per
sons of Brooklyn and Manhattan, Including
Mayora String and Wurster. The report of the
Park Department for 18W says of the fountain:
Thousands of people, including visitors from
all parts nf the rountry, have witnessed the
magnificent spectacle during the season, and all
unite in pronouncing li one of the grandest spec
ever seen. There is no doubt of the wis
d >m of the expendltui f the money required
for the construct! f this fountain, for it has
afforded all the people a means of enjoyment
that could not otherwise have been obtained.

The question as to whether Nathaniel Whitman.

at other points, will come up before Justice Steck

case will he carried to the Supreme Court of the
United States for final adjudication, It is said, as
a law has been passed !>> Congress to make uni
form the bulkhead line in this city.
The answer to the suit, which was died by Cor
poration Counsel \Vh;il«*n in bis term of office,
states that the plaintiffs and their predecessors
never obtained permission from the city to build
wharves, bulkheads, avenues or streets on '.:;•■
lands along the East River, and that the city
"was seized In fee simple absolute under the pro
visions of the Donga n Charter of the lan, under
water between the lines of high and low water
mark, and that the city became vested with the
title to all lands under water of the East and Har
lem rivers. The city. Mr Whalen set forth, on
April 7. 1888, conveyed certain lands under water
to John [.. Brown, reserving any portion of the
lands required for public purposes The city was
therefore, entitled to possession according to the
bulkhead line established by the Harbor Commis
sioners under the laws of l«r>7.

SPECULATORS' FEE XOT CHANGED.
At the meeting of the Board of Aldermen yes
terday Alderman Oatman called up his resolution
to amend the ordinance in reference to licensing
theatre ticket speculators. The ordinance whs
passed in MM, and called for a license fee of JCO
for each speculator. In support of his resolution
Alderman Oatman said that thousands of men
and women who had suffered the annoyance of
torn Clothes would laud the adoption of the resolu
Alderman Downing attacked the resolution, say
ing that it would take the bread and butter out
of the mouths of one hundred men. who do no
harm to anybody, and only did what the great
financiers of ta« daj do speculate.
Alderman Goodman -said that a question of ex

It was impossible for a man In poor circumstances

was. Alderman Downing then declared that it
was only a question i>l time when the board would

saying that the speculators were so anxious to
retain their licenses thai one of them told htm he

"No " said Alderman Bridges, jumping to his

selling green goods in trout of a grocery store."

with a &>0 license fee was retained, by a. vote of
41 to 10.

Alderman lames believes that a majority of the)
committee are already in favor of the passage
Of the ordinance.
"If the members i.f the committee are men of
Rood Judgment." said Alderman James yester
day, "and I believe they are, they will push
this resolution. A good deal "ill depend, how
ever, on the kind of representation we have be
fore the committee at the hearing:. I will.be
there myself, and I expect that many persons
who are anxious to see mis great evil corrected
"ill lend their voices to the support of the
ordinance. I want it to be understood that this
is a bona tide resolution, and not a Strike.*"
Alderman lloodman. who is a member of the
committee, when asked if he favored the reso
"I will not say that 1 am opposed to it. but
there are two sides to this question, and 1
should like to hear both sides before deciding.
The principal objection to th- ordinance is that
it may inconvenience the public even to a
greater degree than the standing of passengers
in open cam. Everybody is anxious to get home
from business as so. as possible, and no man
will like to stand on a street corner and watch
car after car pass him with every seat occupied.
I believe that the railroad company runs as
many cars as it possibly can. and these are not
sufficient to seal all th*» people who wish to ride
in the ru«h hours. Th*» formation of Manhattan
Island is such that the problem is a difficult one
to deal with."

Of the total number or votes rast. about 270.CC0
represented proxies in the interest of the manage

J. Taylor & Co. The votes cf the latter were east
for M S. Burrill. but for no other member of the
regular ticket. The Taylor vote, however, was not
against the regular ticket.
The new board will meet in New-York on Fri
day for organization, and It is expected that the
present officers will be re-elected.
In closing his annual report President Colt said:
The result cf the year's business, so far as profit
Is concerned, is not flattering; nevertheless. It can
be said that it is believed by the management that
everything Is now brought down to a rock bottom
basis, and from this time forward the process of
building up should go on. Much that Is prepara
tory to financial success has been done in the last
year, and good results should follow. The com
pany is now on a solid foundation, with ample
working capital, and with plans for concentration
and economies in purchasing and manufacturing.
and the broad policy in sales recommended by
your management to follow the large volume of
business already secured, there Is every reason to
believe that in the future th • business of this
company can be as profitable as the rubber boot
and shoe business in the United States has been
for the last half-ct.ntury.

pany's operation during the last year will be found,

that they may control the situation from this fact.
Those who desire a change of management, bow
