Estimates Made for Support of Insti tution-The Improvements Kade and Contemplated. The forty-seventh annual report of the board of visitors of the Government Hos pital for the Insane to the Secretary of the Interior has been completed. Following the custom of recent years the report in cludes a 'statement of the principal events in the history of the institution up to the -time of Its presentation, which is almost current date in the present Instance. The report is signed by Dr. Frank M. Gunnell, the president of the board, and Dr. A. B. Richardson, the superintendent of the hos pital, as secretary. The report says: The year has passed without any untoward incidents. The ad missions for the year were 686, the largest number in the history of the hospital. Of these 297 were from the army, navy and marine hospital service and 389 from civil life. Of the latter 285 were cases of indi gent patients resident of the District of Co lumbia and 51 were non-residents admitted by order of the District courts. The re coveries number 248, or 36.15 per cent of the admissions, and the deaths 177, which is 6.18 per cent of the whole number uuder treat ment, and 8.06 per cent of the average num ber resident. The health of the inmates has been good during the year with the exception of a few cases of typhoid fever during the fall months of 1901. None of these proved fatal and all efforts to ascertain the origin of the disease have thus far been of no avail. The drinking water has been examined several times, but nothing suspicious was discover ed. The milk supply is practically all from the dairy of the hospital. There would seem to be no opportunit: fir ihfection from this source, as no employe connocted with the dairy has had the disease previous to its appearance in the hospital, and It is not known to be in any of their families. Increased Facilities. With the completion of the buildings now under contract the facilities for special care of cases requiring it will be still further en larged. The improvements under way at the close of last year are largely completed, and we can note a decided advance in the physical condition of the hospital from year to year. The constantly increasing number of ad missions and the fact that twelve to eigh teen months must still elapse before the buildings of the extension will be completed has compelled us to make temporary provis ion for the probable Increase during this period. The appropriations recommended for the hospital for 19M-1904 are as follows: For support, maintenance, etc., of 2.350 pa tients, at $220 per annum. $517,000. On ac count of the many extra expenses that must necessarily be met from this fund, connect ed with the opening of the new buildings and the transfer of patients, with the rear rangement of the entire system of adminis tration, it is not believed to be wise to re duce this estimate. Itemized Statement. The repairs to the hospital will require the sum of $25,000. Of the special appro priations required the most important is that for furnishing the buildings of the ex tension. including the administration build ing. It is estimated that the sum of $99,000 will be required for this purpose. There are thirteen buildings to be furnished and four kitchens. Furniture must also be provided for 1,000 patients and 112 nurses in addition to the domestic employes required for the other portions of the work beside the nurs ing proper. It will also be necessary to provide in this sum the necessary window guards and screens. There are more than 2,000 windows in the thirteen buildings. For a subway under Nichols avenue to connect the buildings east of the avenue with the other portions of the hospital it is estimated that the sum of $11,500 will be required. The sum of $2,500 is asked with which to connect the railroad tracks of the asylum switch to the new boiler house, and an appropriation of $10,000 for the removal of the small morgue and pathological labo ratory and the reconstruction of a more suitable building and in a better location. The sum of $6,000 is requested with which to install a filtration system at the hospital, much of the drinking water being drawn still from the river. The board also re quests that $15,000 be given for the purpose of inclosing the steel water tower and tank with a brick tower. For the remodeling of the general dining hall the sum of $12,000 is asked. For grading about the buildings of the extension and constructing new road ways $10,000 is requested. Recommendation Submitted. The report concludes with the following recommendation: "This board is also im pressed with the necessity for amendment to the law regulating commitment to the hospital and the discharge of patients there from. It is particularly important that au thority be given the superintendent to grant trial visits before discharge to such pa tients as are believed to be in a condition to warrant it. and also to discharge to the custody of friends such as can be safely cared for outside of a hospital and who cannot be further benefited by hospital treatment." The report contains a memorial notice of Dr. W. W. Johnston, who was a member of the board of visitors. The good work done in the hospital's pathological depart ment is referred to. The report of Dr. I. W. Blackburn, the pathologist of the insti tution, will be published in a special bulle tin. It embraces a summary of all the cases of brain tumor that have come under his observation, and Is deemed valuable to the profession. PASTOR T AKES CH ARGE. Rev.

Captain Rudolph Sommers, a member of the Kearsarge Association, arrived in Wash ington today from Franklin, Mass. Cap tain Sommers carries with him his boat ensign, the same which he kept floating to. the breeze during two fierce engagements of the war. The first of these occurred October 24, 1864, when, with a crew of six, he was fired on as he was returning from a reconnoissance of the ram Albemarle, lying at Plymouth, N. C. In the heavy fire one member of the crew was killed and two wounded, and the ensign riddled with bullets. The second time was at the bat tle of Fort Fisher, and the naval reports give glowing accounts of Captain Sommiers' fearless darig on this occasion. With a small boat from the Tacony he was sound ing the channel at New Inlet, and at the same time dragging for torpedoes, when the confederates opened fire on him from the mound battery. One of their solid shots went through his flag, another struck the top of the flagstaff and by the time Ca~ptain Sommers had tied the ensign to a boat hook and hoisted it bravely in the air an other shot ripped through the stern of the boat, taking both legs off of one of the crew and wounding another. Captain Som mers succeeded in tying up the wounded man's legs to stop the blood and kept him afloat in the water until t'he party was picked up by another boat, the shots from the battery raining around them during this time. TR ADE OF PHITPPINES. Increase in Imports From 1899 to 1902 Xany Hillions. The bureau of insular affairs has given out a statemeht of the commerce of the 1Philippine Islands by fiscal years from the date of the American occupation to June 30, 1902, which shows that the port of Ma nila opened August 22, 1898, the general opening, of the other ports in the archipei ago beginning January 1, 1890. ..n -1899 the total imports were $13,112,010; in 190 the total imports were $90,00!L,430s in 1901 $30;279,408 and inf902 $32,141,912. -The incfease of but $1,862,436 In -the im ports for the fiscal year. 1902 can. it is e plainaed, be aqoounted fon biy the. prevalenpe oL sholera and the sfrict quarantine nees-a Thr be a correelionding -tieresse ia the exnorta fram -tha Duc1 w'ear iBI to 008T OF THE AR EXPENDITUrES DECREAE I D ING THE FISCAL YEAR. Report of Paymaster General Ba Not a Cent Lost to the Govern ment in Past Four Years. According to the annual report of Payn master General Bates army expenditures decreased during the past fiscal year $18. 919 as compared wilh the preceding year. partly owing to decrease in the pay of the army a.d In part owing to a reduction of claims for extra pay by volunteers. The total expenditures made by Paymaster Gencral Bates were 352.523.479. Not a Cent Lost. "It is with satisfaction." says Gen. Bates, "that I an enabled to state that while the total disbursements on account of pay, etc., of the army, from AprIl 21. 1898. to June 30, 1902 (a period of four years. two mionths and ten days), aggregates $200.051.267. every cent has been satisfactorily accounted fe and the government has not lost 1 cent through defalcation. captures by the enemy. robbery or any other cause; while the cost of disbursing this vast sum, including the salaries and mileage of paymasters and their clerks. has been but seven-tenths of 1 per cent of the amount disb aed "When it is considered that veff mu the service paid for has been remote frova the United States, thereby increasing the cost of payment, it will be evident that had the troops been serving altogether in the United States, the cost of disbursemeat would in all probability have fallen to, or below, six-tenths of 1 per cent of the amount disbursed. "In this particular. contrasted with tie civil war, when nearly a half million dol lars was lost to the government. the ab sence of any loss whatever during the period covering the Spanish-American war and the Philippine insurrection is a gratify ing tribute to the official probity, responsi bility and accountability of the officers of the pay corps." Favors Civil Pension List. Gen. Bates says the clerical force of the office is most efficient and that he has no recommendation to make in regard to the force, except to renew that in regard to the establishment of a system by which clerks who are disabled and who have served not less than thirty years may be placed on a civil pension list. A scheme has been sug gested which. it would seem, he says, might work well and not increase the expense of the government. That Is that all clerks should have deducted from their pay a cer tain amount each month, thus forming a fund, held in trust by the United States treasury, from which such retired pay or pension could be paid. Gen. Bates says he sees no trouble in adjusting such a scheme to a practical working basis if the princi ple be approved. GEN. SMITH HERE. Declines to Discuss His Vigorous Cam paign in Samar. Brig.
