Twelvo Committees Will Bo Formed,
One for Each Month, to 'Audit
the Accounts of the Institution
and Talce Complete Charge of,,All
Its Business Affairs.
The Initial meeting of the board of lady
managers for the "Episcopal Eye, Ear,
and Throat Hospital" was held in St.
John's Parish Hall at 2:30 o'clock yes
terday afternoon. The board is composed
of one or more ladies selected from the,
congregation of each of the Episcopal
churches in the District of Columbia by
the board of governors of the hospital."
Owing to the fact that many members
were unable to be present, by reason of
sickness, the board did not oiganlzc yes
terday, as was at first intended. Instead,
those present listened to several addresses
regarding the field to be covered by the
new institution, and tlie duties of the
board of Indy governors.
After a prayer by Rev. 1): . Randolph Mc
Klm, or Epiphany Church, Mrs. I. C. Hel
ton and. Mrs. SuMc Johnston were elected
to Ml the posts, respectively, of chairman
andsccretaiy for the meeting. Mr. "William
1). Baldwin, first vice president of the
board or governors, explained that the or
ganization of the board was necessarily
postponed until tlie next meeting. In clos
ing, lie introduced Rev. Dr. Aspinwall, of
St. Thomas' Church.
Dr. Aspinwall congratulated the mem
bers upon the work which they have been
doing In their respective churches in behalf
of tlie new hospital. This inhtitution, lie
said, would be a lasting monument to the
members of the Episcopal Church in "Wash-"
ington, Tor it would meet a want which has
long been felt in tills city.
Dr. 0. 1'. Belt, secretary of the board of
governors, explained what the duties of
the lady managers would consist. The
I oard, which will be composed of about
seventy-five members, will be divided into
twelve committees, one for each month of
the year. Each committee, during the
month to width it Is aFslgned, will assume
full charge of tlie running expenses of the
hospital. It will receive and audit the
bills and draw the necef-sary n.oncy from
the treasury to defraj them. A member
will be expected to contribute nothing to
the hospital except a part of her time and
attenton during the month In which her
committee acts.
At the close of Dr Belt's address a com
mittee counting of Mrs. Mary E. Smoot,"
illss Fanny Gibbs and Miss Fredcrica L.
Rodgers was appointed to confer with a
similar committee from the board of man
agers to draw up a set of rules for the
government oi the board of lady managers.
The meeting thereupon adjourned until
Friday, Ferbuary l'J, at 4:15 p. ra.
Those present were Mrs. Susie Johnston,
Mrs. James T. Mills, Mrs. P. M. Prescott,
Mrs. H. II. Carter, Mrs. S. II. James, Mrs.
May F. Smoot, Mrs. Charles E. Buck, Ilss
Minnie A. Mason, Mrs. "Waiter "Wheatley,

Sanitary Officer Frank received a mes
sage Thursday afternoon that a woman in
a house south of Pennsylvania avenue, ot
No. 301 Thirteen-and-a-half street, was

the aumibsion. She begged to have tlie
patient removed at once. She had taken
the woman In through kindness, she said,
not knowing that she had a contagious dis
ease. Dr. Woodward telephoned to Providence
Hospital and received a response that the
sick woman wouldDe admitted there, and
she was removed to that institution as foon
as practicable.
The houc from which the woman was
removed was ordered to be closed at once,
and will be disinfected this morning.

The. Engineer Commissioner has com
pleted the plats or the second section
of street extensions under the highway act
and they arc ready for submission to the
commission, consisting of Secretary La
mont, Secretary Francis, and the chief
or Engineers of tlie Army. Nothing can
be done toward perrecting the system,
however, until after the United States
Supreme Court shall have passed upon the
case now pending, involving the constitu
tionality ot the act. It is believed by
the District officials that the act will
be sustained, In which event the second
section will be submitted at once.
Tlie engineer Commissioner has nearly
completed the third section plans, also,
and has made considerable progress in
the fourth and last section. He devotes
one hour each day, and orten more time,
to the study or the details, and will be so
far advanced as to be able to place the
plates of all three of the sections before
the commission very soon arter the court
renders a decision, should it be favor
able. In case or an adverse ruling by the
court, the matter will be greatly delayed,
as the proceedings will have to be insti
tuted anew, and tlie work done over
