TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1903 There is no doubt as to the popular ity of the City Hospital. Tho Even ing News had hardly appeared on tho street yosterday beforo one of Porth Amboy’s best known citizens, Luther M. Hope, came into the office and loft $1 for tho fond now being raised to build a reception room and morguo at the institution. Tlioro is no doubt ns to the good of the cause in this regard ■lied upon to lg. The ball lowly gaining aent the do mpl’shod. ing in which rnboy can feel interest. It hilanthropist. keep it run olely by the i money col s from their hus maintain son that the people take sneh an interest in tho in stitution and it is for this reason thnt they will supply its noeds when they are absolutely essential. It is evident that n reception room for sick patientB and a mprgue are something that must (be had nnd when this is realizod the people wiL respond to the call, for it is the people’s institution. No more fitting Christmas offering conld be niadn. Action on the part of the Board of Aldermen, authorizing the issuing of bonds for the improvement of the fire department for wliicli the city lias been waiting so long, was taken last night. It is almost a year now Binee the first steps were taken to have the legislature pass n bill which would meet the demands of the oity. In the meantime the matter has advanced slowly, step by step, some notion be ing taken, enough to Keep up hopes just when it was thought the matter was dead. As has already been stated the im provement consists of two new fire houses, one new company, two new combination wagons and one now hook and ladder truck. While the program does not include a steam fire engine, such an apparatus is bound to come in the near future. The people realize its necessity and will have it. A good start has been made. The good worn is bound to go on. The Staten Island Rapid Transit will get a new lease for twenty-five yenrs on the property at the foot of Smith street. This is good as it assures the people who travel between this city and Tottenville that before this time next year they will have ample accommodation and the best of servioe. Let the good work go on. More improvements of this kind are noeded in Perth Amboy and any effort of n similar nature Bhonld receive the hearty support of the city. . — -- IN THE HOUSE. iHtlimlnn CnnnI.

Due. 15.—The sen ate spoilt the day on the Cuban bill, most of the time being occupied by Hr. Bailey (Tex.) in an elaborate argu ment against the constitutionality of the proceeding.

Mr. Bailey also op posed the bill as u matter of general policy. Brief speeches were made by Sena tors Teller. Depew and Lodge.

ROOT DEFENDS WOOD Secretary Addresses Chair- j man on Military Affairs. REPORTS SENT OUT FULL OF ERRORS “False Report* Famished the Preaa to tlie Prejudice of tut Honorable Officer and Mutt of Integrity Flighting In Philippine*.** WASHINGTON, Dec. 15. — Eliln) Hoot, secretary of war, has addressed llie following letter to Senator Proctor, ruling chairman of tlie committee on military affairs: •T inclose a letter from Brigadier General Tasker II. Bliss asking atten tion to tin* report of liis recent testi mony before your committee as a wit ness regarding certain objections to the confirmation of General Wood. It ap pears that tlie press report of General , Bliss’ testimony is the precise con- j trury of what he in fact testified. He j wishes tills set right for liis own repu-1; tatlon, and 1 shall take tlie liberty of, I doing so us fur us practieuble by giv- j Ing his letter to tlie press. j j ”At the same time I wish to call 5 tlie attention of your committee to the I fact that some person seems to be per- j sistestly furnishing to the press false j statements of the testimony taken be- | fore you. file perversion of the evidence j being in every case to the prejudice of j <,'pii.■nil Wood. It cannot lie doubted j that tlie newspapers publishing these ! reports believe them to he true and j that the reports are sent to them by j tlie representatives of tlie press in good j faith under tlie same belief. “It is evident that some person is tin- j del-taking to convey to the press rep- j rosentatives information of what goes | on in the committee and is taking ud-,j vantage of the fact that tlie evidence j is not published to state it falsely for j tlie purpose of injuring General Wood I . I.. 41..1.11..1 11.11 tlmi ait tli.if will Id I | your committee will act upon the evi- j ilence actually before it, the public j judgement as to how you ought to act i will be based upon an entirely different j and erroneous idea of what the evi- j deuce is. j "If the evidence actually given called ; for General Wool's presence I should j of course bring him back from the j Philippines, but I do not feel justified j In withdrawing him from the impor tant duties which lie is performing on I account of false reports of evidence which lias never In fact been given. It hardly seems fair that an officer who is not here to protect himself, but is serving bis country faithfully under orders on the other side of the world. 1 should have his reputation stabbed in i this way. I earnestly request your i committee’s attention to this subject.” Genera! Miss in his letter contradicts tire report that he strongly opposed the admission without payment of duty of the silver service purchased itt New York by the Jal Alai and that he re ceived mandatory instructions from General Wood to admit said silver service free of duty, lie says he testl lied most positively under oath that neither directly nor Indirectly, verbal ly nor in writing, personally from him nor through any subordinate nor from any person whatsoever, "had 1 received even an intimation us to the remission of duties updh these articles; that 1 or dered the remission of duty because 1 believed then and believe now that it was in accordance with Jlie law; that if any mistake was made I was solely responsible for it. 1 further testified that during the two and a half years that I served directly under the orders of General Wood as military governor of Cuba I know of no action of his that was not consistent with the char acter of an honorable officer and a man of integrity.” WOOD HEARING. Evidence Given by l)r. Flxlior YVn* Asaiimt C'liuraeter of IlellnirN. WASHINGTON, Doc. 15. — In tin* Wood heal ing Ih'. Eisner testified that lie told General Wood all he had learned of the charncV of ltellairsand that he had offered to General Wood to produce witnesses who could prove Bel la in indecent morally. II*' said that General Wood told him lie did not cure to know anything about the stories; that all he asked was that they not lie printed in Havana. Mr. La Fontlsee said flint in May. 1000, a convict from Florida named Johnson came lo him and said that he had seen Bellnirs and General Wood together at the races In Havana and that he recognized and spoke to Bel lairs. who motioned to him to keep si lent. According to Johnson's story as told-by Mr. La Fortlaeo, Bellnirs ex cused himself nisi met Johnson, asking him to remain quiet concerning his criminal record. Crow'* Condition Critical. ST. Lons.
