Memorial Corporation Proposes
to Turn Over Institution to
City for Charitable Purposes.
Management to Be in
Hands of Self-Perpetu?
ating Board.
Formal plans for the transter of the
Memorial Hospital to the city of Rich?
mond were presented to the Common
Council lam night on behalf of the
board of the Institution by Chairman
H. R Pollard, Jr., of the Committee on
Finance. Because of the heat, tho
Council transacted no business, ad?
journing to Friday night at S o'clock,
when the proposition will be taken up
and referred to the Committee on Re
llef of the Poor for a report.
The offer is signed by John L, Wil?
liams, president of the Charlotte Wil?
liams Hospital Corporation, whl?h for
some years past has owned the Me?
Charity Its Klraf Aim.
Mr. Williams states that It has al?
ways been the alrn of the founders of
the hospital to devote It as speedily as
possible to churlty. to the roller or
the sick and the suffering, and to the
advancement ot medical education. It
has operated along these lines to the
extent of its financial ability. It Is
proposed now to convey the Memorial
Hospital and all of its equipment, and
such of its endowment as it has a
right to give away, to the c;t> of
Richmond, the chief conditions being
that the present name shall be retain?
ed, that the city assume th<- debt upon
the hospital amounting to $40,000, and
that the city maintain the hospital as
a charitable institution, and provide
for Its efficient maintenance.
It is proponed that the control bo
forever vested In a board of control
and management composed of seven
members made up of the Mayor 61 tho
city, the chairman of the Finance Com?
mittee of the City Council, and tlvo
members to be selected by the Char?
lotte Williams Hospital Corporation,
these five to be self-perpetuating, any
vacancy among them to be tilled by thu
remaining members.
Otrer From .Mr. t\ IIllanm.

Council of the City of Richmond,
"bear Sir,?The Memorial Hospital,
at the southeast corner of Broad and
Twelfth Streets. In the city of Rlch
mand. is owned by 'Charlotte Williams
llospl al," a corporation, and Is called
?The Memorial Hospital '
"It was the aim and purpose of those
who founded this hospital that It
should eventually, and as speedily as
possible, be devoted to charity and to
the relief of the sick and suffering
who needed assistance, and to ih\ ad?
vancement of medical education. Dur?
ing Its existence, It has done much
such work and to the full extent of
Its financial ability.
"It Is believed, however, that as a
city institution, rather than as one de?
pendent upon private support, a wider
field of usefulness will be open to it.
and the hopes and purposes of those
who subscribed to this work will he
more fully reallz-.d.
"For these reasons, the "Charlotte
Williams Hospital' has determined to

sume the debt secured by mortgage
upon said hospital, the principal of
which is $40.000.
"3. The city will maintain the said
hospital as a charity hospital, and pro?
vide for Its efficient maintenance.
"4. The control and management of
the hospital shall be forever vested In
a board to be known as the 'board of
control and management." composed of
seven members to be selected in the
following mnnner:
"(a) The Mayor of the city of Rich?
"(h) The chairman of the Finance
Committee of the Counoll of the city
of Richmond. The two above named
members of said board may be changed

"S. In the event the city of Rich?
mond shall at any time deem It expe?
dient to sell said hospital In order

alms and purposes for which It was
founded, the city of Richmond' may
sell and conve? the same by deed In

Germany, in sending the Panthei

southern Morocco in anticipation of
the possible partition of the country,
according to tho general Interpreta?
tion of the German press, will take its
share In the province of Sus. with Its
rich copper and mineral deposits, its
great agricultural possibilities and its
equable climate, In which whites can
live and work, unless France and
hpain withdraw from the present ad?
venture, and really respect the integ?
rity of Morocco.
This is confirmed by the scmi-ollicial
statement which appears In the Co?
logne Gazette, pointing out that France
and Spain, under assurances of purely
temporary and benevolent action, both
landed troops and occupied territory
in violation of the Algeciras act. Ger?

Germany has advised the United
States of her intention to send a war?
ship to Agadlr, Morocco. While this
government Is watching the progress
of events in the African empire. It is
not vitally interested in the political

France's attitude concerning Germ- n
intervention in Morocco. As France
was merely notified of the fact ac?

It is possible that this government will
not send a reply to Berlin, but, like
Germany, will decide upon a course of

It is not unlikely that after consult

dicated on huge blackboards and by

Only by making the cross-channel

glory from the feat. After to-day the

landed gracefully. The flight from I
Calais had been accomplished in aboul
half an hour. Other contestants fol?
lowed in quick succession. Seven
monoplanes were almost bunched;
then came two biplanes, and another
monoplane brought up the rear.
Ah Orderly an a Race Meeting.
Everything went as orderly and in
as ordinary fashion as at a horse race
meeting. One by one the machines ap?
peared over the trees, swept down to
the aerodrome, circled It. and landed
without a semblance of a mishap.
There was none of the excitement that
had characterized the finish of the
previous cross-channel flights, nor
were the aviators exhausted. Instead,
they crawled from their aeroplanes .
and calmly walked away with friends. |
while their machines were taken to
the hangars to be overhauled, very
much as a race horse might be led to
its stable for a rub down.
Soon after the last of the eleven avi?
ators had landed the wind began to
freshen, and it was decided to start
Immediately on the next stage of the

rica for Arbitration.
In the speech to the old soldiers
the President declared that all the!
foreign wars waged by this country I
except the Revolution, and possibly '
the Civil War. could have been settled j
without bloodshed, through arbitration
No fewer than rtve times, said the
President, had the United States In- I
tervened between South and Central
American countries that felt heiliger- !
ent. and by peaceful persuasion averted !
"I am not a wild enthusiast or a !
blind optimist," said the President. "1 j
do not look forward to a complete I
restoration of peace which cannot be
disturbed In the world c?ven If these j
treaties of arbitration are adopted.1
Morality of nations improves only step
by step, and so the making and con?
firming of these treaties must be re?
garded not only as a step, but as a
very long step toward the securing of
peace In the world."

the President. In his speech to the

er, the business man. the manufac?

preservation of law and ordc-r and

ernment to furnish to the people a j
banking and currency system which
shall give them a constant and un?
varying medium for the measurement
of values and the Interchange of pro?
ducts that shall enable business to
proceed in a normal way."
Mr. Taft is the first President to
visit Marion after his assumption of
office, and thousands of persons turned
out to see him.
In his speech to the veterans, the I
President said In part:
May Have Aided Progress.
"I am far from saying that war has I
not in times past accomplished much {
in the progress of the world Whether [
the same progress might have been !
achieved in a more peaceful way. It
is unnecessary to discuss. Probably
not. It was by war that this country
gained Its Independence of Oreat Brit?
ain. If England had been better ad?
vised, probably war would not have
followed the declaration of indepen?
dence, and we might now he. as in the
case of Canada, cherishing attachment
to the mother country without exer?
cising complete Independence.
"The War of 1S12 mizht certainty
have been avoided by arbitration. The
questions there represented have all
been settled by the Judgment of man?
kind In favor of our side of the con?
troversy. !
"The war with Mexico, though there |
is some dispute over this, was one of
the questions capable of solution by
an impartial tribunal
"Whether the Civil War could have
been avoided is a very difficult ques?
tion to answer. When slavery has be?
come Imbedded In the social fibre of
a country, it Is possible that only an
excision by a war knife, can remove
the. cancer.
"Nor shall 1 attempt to answer a .
similar question as to the Spanish war.
It Is one of those Instances of inter?
nal dissension, like the Civil War.
and yet I believe that the submission
of the Issues to a tribunal might have
affected Spain's treatment of Cuba In
such a way that we could have avoided
a resort to arms.
"The awful consequences to two
heavily armed countries under modern
conditions of war have been a great j
deterrent of war; hut the Irresponsi- i
hllity of men claiming to he patriots I
and desiring to overturn existing gov- 1
ernmrnts. where law and order are not
well established, has led to a great
deal of guerrilla warfare and to the
suffering of Innocent people, who find i
no real principle Involved in the two!
contending parties, except that of am- :
bitlon for power. Much of this kind i
of work has occurred in South Amer?
ica and In Central America; and In
the degree of guardianship which the
United States must feel over the re?
publics In this hemisphere, In main?
taining their Integrity against Euro?
pean Invasion, we ought to welcome
every opportunity which gives us a
legitimate Instrument by which we
can make less probable such Interne?
cine strife.

From Coast to Co
People's Suffering)
Is Intense.
No Relief Is in Sight, and Hot
Fourth of July on Record
Promised?Richmond Swe
ters at 98 Degrees, and
Crowds Flee to Cooler
While humanity staggered and
panted under the terrific heat yester?
day, the mercury made a desperata
upward spurt and touched 98 degrees
as the high mark of tho day, accord?
ing to the official reading at the bui
leau on Chlmborazo Park. Once be?
fore this summer?on June 23?that
same high mark was reached, although
Lite suffering yesterday was the great?
est experienced here this year. Stand?
ing out in the broiling sun In Capitol
Square the rod tracing noedle of the
kiosk wiggled its way to 107 degrees,
which was the exact temperature o?
the street.
But even around 98 the temperature,
failed to bring prostration, due largely
to the fact that peoplo were cautious
and that a nine-mile breeze swept In
from the northeast. There was enough
humidity to send victims down by the
May Hi- W?rmer To-Day.
If the present gait (s continued this
ought to be one of the hottest. Inde?
pendence bays on record. In the North
Central valleys and throughout the
North Atlantic States the most severe
hot wave of the year is spreading Its
fangs. Temperatures were abnormal,
running up and beyond 100 In the
shade. In this city at 8 o'clock yes?
terday morning the ther-mometer stood
at 7 7. which was 12 degrees lower,
than New York. From 8 o'clock on
It continued to rise, touching 94 at
noon. 97 at 3 P. M. and going to 98 a
little later, and then lacked enorcy
to crawl higher.
Warned by that Sunday perform?
ance, people docked away from the
city yesterday by the thousands. Pas?
senger travel was the heaviest ever
known hereabout for July 3, trains
for the mountains and seashore being
forced to pick up extra coaches to
I handle the congestion.
I Fair and continued warm Is the pre?
diction sent forth tor to-day.

HH-degree temperatures In four wide?
ly separated cities, together with a

tempera iure of I on or higher, no hope
for relief could be discovered. Local
thunder showers may alleviate suf?
fering in some sections, but they will* i

Indications of rain are anywhere to bo
The heat is taking a heavy toll of
death, according to reports, and the
suffering Is Increased by a drought
that practically has been unbroken,
except in the South Atlnntlo and East
Gulf States, where the temperatures
are moderate. \
At the Weather Bureau here to\ay i
the mercury reached the 99 mark at 2
o'clock, while two hours later tho bu?
