NEW HOSPITAL ON
VIRGINIA SITE
Dr. McGuirc Intimates That
Bigger Structure May Take
I'lace of One Now There.
j NO DETAILS ANNOUNCED
Medical Students Agree to Be?
come Custodians of Their
New Coilcsre.
I While no definite plan was set forth",
Dr. stout McGuirc, president of th>
'University College of Modlclne, an?
nounced yesterday morning In his n?l
drss t.> tio- student body that the Vir?
ginia Hospital will shortly be over?
hauled or else lorn down to mak? room
i't on institution which will be In.
keeping with the new college next
door. The broud Intimation tint a new .
hospital will be erected on the present I
site of the Virginia verified reports to
that effect heard heretofore, although
Dr. McOulrc did not r.o Into details or:
express an opinion as to when work I
might )>?? expected to begin. The hos
pltnl development within the past few
years has put Richmond in the front :
rank, ahead .if nil Southern cities, yet
the demand for additional accommoda?
tions is still growing.
The failure of the old project to
unite the medical .-..'.leges makes it
necessary for the University College of
Medicine and the Medical College of
Virginia to maintain hospitals as an i
adjunct. It is doubtful if the oily will
lake over the Memorial in spite- of the
5M'."tig Inducements offered, so it will
continue to be a III I la ted with the Med?
ical College Of Virginia.
Need nigger Hospital.
Dr. McOulre bollcves that with the
opining of the new medical college
building It will be necessary to rebuild
the Virginia or else erect an entirely
now hospital. This Idea has been very
generally commended by the faculty
of the college and practicing physicians
and surgeons Identified with that
school.
Speaking generally of conditions. Dr.
MeGulre referred to the fine work of
the Btudants, t' their loyalty when
theli institution was wrecked by lire,
and to the large enrolment and the sue
ccssful session now reaching Its close.
Judge George I* Christian, president
of the board of trustees and on? of
the original members! I>r. A. 1* Gray,
dean of the medical department: Dr.
n. U Simpson, .lean of the dental de?
partment, and Or. It. W. Mill r. ?lenn
of the pharmacy department, also spoke
and congratulated the students and the
graduating class for the excellent rec?
ords established during the past year.
Announcement was made of important
additions to the teaching staff next
session, the full nature of which will
be mad.- public during the commence?
ment exercises.
At the request of the faculty, the stu?
dent body named themselves as a com?
mittee of the whole t-> look uft.>r tho
new college building. They will im?
pose lines on any member who defaces
; the property.

Elmer Crawford, in Address at
Clubs, Tells Manufacturers
of Great Opening.
CANAL WILL HELP SOUTH
Severely Raps Congress for Its
Attitude on Big Public
Question.
Two hundred and fl'ty members of
tho Business M-u'k Club and Invited
guests last ni".ht heard Elmer Craw?
ford, tho Chicago editor nnd newspaper
proprietor, speak ou."Th< Trade Pos?
sibilities for th* South Through the
Opening o'. the Panama Canal."
"Great as has been the development
of the South In the past quarter of a
Century," said Mr. Crawford, "a great?
er commercial Impetus awaits our busi?
ness friend- of the Southern St at is
upon the opening of the Panama Canal.
In the next fifteen years trw Incrcu.se
of niunufaoturinig Industries in the
Southern States will ht so prent that
the present methods of doing bu.-incs.
nerc will be obsolete.
"The owners of the ?ntlre S?S.OOO.- J
UOi.tiO.? of property In tho South should
arlsj as one man a lid demand of Con?
gress the Immediate revision of our
navigation law*, so that American
ships shall be In a position to carry
at least 63.2 per cent, of our products,
us they did in 1SC1. Instead of *.s per
vent., as they did In 1011. Would that
rhe halls of Congress might ring again
with patriotic oratory a.> of old, so as
to rivet the attention of this nxtlon
upon our miserable navigation laws
and shipping fucillllos.
Would lllot out Stars.
"What a sad commentary upon the
qualification.- and foroslRht r.f our re
markaible bunch of petty grafters who
have thronged the halls of Congres
rhe par: half century, and whose abili?
ties were in evidence only when they
were able to feather their own nests,
nnd who would ha\v? blotted out the
stars on the Ajnerican flag and re?
placed them with the dollar signs, had
they dared."
Whii^' njt committing himself to any
particular ,-n.ip subsidy bill, Mr. Craw?
ford was emphatic In the demand Tor
some, subsidy of steamship lines If
American goods are to he carried In
American bottoms In a way to enrich
American manufacturers. Before
launching Into his philippic against
the hesitancy of Congress to approach
this question, the speaker took up the
general asp r\. of the c.mal question in
reference to trade.
?The paramount problem that should
lntfrrst the manufacturers of this
country Is the proper conception and
solution of trade exper.sion." ho said.
"The spheres of Influence controlled
by European nations arc. so extensive
that It behooves us to study well tho
situation. This great question and Its
ramifications will more vitally affect
I our manufacturers in a few years that!
I the solution of any problem now he
fore the American people; I'pon Its
proper solution depends the prosperity
of the manufacturers, and Incidentally
the prosperity of our progressiva coun?
try.
Germany May Take l.end.
"Germany In the past thirty year*
hns not only surpassed the United
States and all other nations of Eu?
rope in trade expansion, but Is des?
tined to become the :.nd!ng commer- j
eial nation of the world, untere there |
Is a tremendous Industrial awakening,
along {hose lines In this country.
ller products ure carried in German I
owned and controlled ships, and arc
handled and exploited by Germans In
foreign lands, nur manufacturers
have been amply warned of the com?
mercial attitude of Germany, and con
not but real!/.- that in a few years,
because of the aggressiveness of the
Gier man manufacturer, hundreds of
our manufactured products will be
driven from Europe.
"What is going to be done by out*
manufacturers. who must In tho
future depend upon foreign trade for
the marketing of a large psrt of the'r
products? Rec'procity In its most
comprehensive character must prevail
with the nations north and semth of
i us. We must also have facilities for
jthe transportation of our products,
and the .protection of our commercial
credit. If we expect to capture and
rnalntuln trade with the Latin Ameli?
can countr'cs, there must be method
in our operations. The Panama ("anal
will bring us n arer tei f*atin America
by thousands of miles than any ag?
gressive manufacturing nation, lint we
should have our own ships to carry
our products, and our own hanks tn
j hand! ? our credits."
l'rnrs Some (.rent War.
j Mr. Crawford closed his striking
' address with a prediction of war with
some powerful European manufactur?
ing nation over the abol'tlon of the
Monroe Doctrine, unless American
manufacturers obtain and maintain
such a firm grip on the trade ol Eatln
America that European nations will
lack Hie pretext for tho acqulstlon of
territorial lonoossions 'n Sfittth Amer?
ica. The address created a profound
impression.
Following Mr. Crawford, John Trix,
.of Iietroit, hanker, educator and phll
lanthrop'st, delivered a humorous talk
that brought down tlie roof with
applause. Mr. Trix Illustrated his re
| marks on labor conditions in Detroit
In such a manner that his audience
was kept In n gale of laughter, lie
described step by step the organiza?
tion nnd perfection of the merchants
combination 'n Dotro't that has ef?
fectually blockod the dominance of the
trad? unions, and put the employers
In a position to deal on equal terms
with the employe over labor difficul?
ties. Mr. Trix has been three times

Total Amount for Home May

With several precincts Hill uhrc

had last night nette.1 the Virginia

Wiille badly handicapped In the fore?
noon b>' a small cloudburst, the. 1,000
workers scattered over the city went
at their tiTjk of tagging In the after
noon with a determination that taut?
ened one or more bells on every lapel
In Hi a city.
Many of the boxes counted up near
the century mark, but the bax of Mrs.

tual Building, Showed the record re?
ceipts of the day. with JlOK.r.u. Sec?
ond place was claimed by Mrs. A 1*.
Straus, stationed at the Jefferson <-'!ub.
WhOSO b?a showed collections of $107.
South Richmond led the outlying dis?
tricts with donations of $167, Barten
Heights running ?econd with receipts
of jso. The showing made by the
South Richmond workers surpasses
anything done in former campaigns of
this character. Highland Park and

ceipts had not ln-en officially entered

Although the total receipts of the
1912 Meli Kay will probably fall $100
short of the donations made Hi 1911,
Mrs. lt. M. l'lilliuin and her coinniltteo
are highly gratllleel with thv result,
considering the iweuther conditions,
which kept so many people off the
street. One criticism was heard?that
the purchase of one bell did not Insure
Immunity from further entreaties for

for the man with live bells already to
