VOTES TO ACCEPT
HOSPITAL OFFER
Subcommittee Recommends That
City Acquire Memorial as
Free Institution.
MODERN PLANS SUBMITTED
Even With Erection of Annex,
Cost Would Be Much Less
Than New Building.
Acceptance, of the ?emorlul Hos?
pital <,iid its conversion into a great
public Institution for the people of
Richmond was recommended last night
by Joint subcommittees of the Coun?
cil Committees on Finance and Relief
of the l'?or. The question of manage?
ment was left over .for consideration
by the full committees, but it was the
senso of the members present that in
the formation of a. board of manage?
ment the city should have tbo naming
of at least ?1 majority, thus assuring
control by the City.
Dr. George Den Johnston, head of
the visiting start of the, present City
Home Hospital, presented preliminary
draw'ngs prepared by Architects Car?
acal and Johnston for erection of an |
annex lo the present Memorial Hos?
pital on the Broad Street side, with an
estimate by Contractor Ancurrow that
It could be erected complete for i71?,
ooo, not counting the site. Allowing
for tho purchase of the site, erection
of the annex, and for the mortgage j
of lie.000 on the. present building, the
subcommittee was of opinion that the:
prop, rty could be acquired and put ;
in complete order ns a modern city
hospital of ample slr.c for existing
needs for .i total coal of ? 165,000, I
while the election of a. new Instltll- j
lion outright on another locution
would cost at least double that sum. i
Pinna Ably Explained,
K. Li. Remiss, 15. Randolph Williams'
and Dr. Kiinion o. Williams were pres-|
cnt on behalf of the Charlotte Wil?
liams Corporation, which has offered
to turn the property over to the city
under certain conditions.
Dr. Johnston explained the provis?
ions of the plans for the annex, which
Were prepared under bis personal di?
rection. The larger portion of the an?
nex provides wards for the treatment 1
of colored patients, thus allowing all {
of the present hospital for white pati?
ents.
Tbc basement and u portion of the
connecting wing of tho annex provides
ample space for dispensaries for the
treatment of sick persons not Inmates
of tho hosylt.il. which. Dr. Johnston
explained, would bo a large part of
tho work of a modern and centrally
located city hospital.
A Joint meeting ?f ?hu Committees
on Finance und Relief of the Poor will
be called shortly t.i consider the re?
port und to take up with the. repre?
sentatives of the Charlotte Williams
Corporation details ,.i the plan for
the management ot the Institution.
I Messrs. Bemlas and Williams nave us
surcd the committee that '.bey will con?
sent to any arrangement which guar
! iihtees that the property which they
! now hold Ih trust shall be used for
the purpose for which It was given?
I the. relief of the sick and suffering?
und that sufficient precautions he
I placed around tho Institution to keep
I it from political Interference and In
; competent management.

In their names to J. Shrove Durham, 1
superintendent or the church census,!
for the gigantic undertaking ef listing I
the religious preference of evory man,]
woman and child in the city In two!
hours on the afternoon of Tuesday.'
May is While the response 's isratlfy- I
liiK indeed, and the inlet est in tue
movement acute, yet Mr. Durham and
ihe backers of the scheme are contem?
plating Still further .alls for workers
Making allowances f^t unexpected
difficulties and delays, the wurkers a'-'
ready enlisted should complete the task j
in less time than the two houis al?
lotted, hut it ib felt that the more
workers brought into actual touch with
the- movement the greater w'll be the j
linal effect.
Great satisfaction was expressed b>'
Mr., Durham at the enthusiasm which
characi irlsed last night's meeting of
the workers tor Instruction In the Tab?
ernacle Baptist Church. Visitors from"
the West Knd, including representa?
tives from every denomination, creed I
and be|i >f. overllowed the main and1-,
torlum and crowded put Into the a?l-'
joining Sunday school rooms. The j
keen Interest of the workers was ap
parent from the questions which were!
asked of Mr. Durham after hi had tin
Is'hed his explanatory statement e?f J
how the business of census taking was
to be accomplished.
To-night the workers from the South,
aide will meet in th- Mtade Memorial

ELECTION TANGLE
NOT CLEARED YET
Schedule of Voting Places Must
Be Fixed by Two Branches
of Council.
Special meetings of the Common
Council and Board of Aldermen may
be necessary this month to rectify an
Oversight to which the papers of the
city have repeatedly called attention.
The general election for Ma:-or. one
Alderman and twenty Councllmeh comes
Ion June 11, and the Council has so far
failed to adopt an:, schedule of voting
plac-s. Since the laiit general election
toe . it>- has been redlstrh ted Into four
wards, and in.- Council subsequently
adopted a schedule of precincts. The
City Democratic Committee selected |
the- polling places useel In the primary,
and there Is (to reason to believe that
the same places will not be eontirnied,
but the law requires a city ordinance
tixing the voting places. The Com?
mon Council meets on June 3 and the
Board of Aldermen not until June 11.
which is election day. Wcra the <'mm
.11 to ni t on June .1. mid a special
meeting of the Board of Aldermen be
held the following' night, the paper
could b- properly passed and lh> elec?
tion ma:!.- legal. A compile at ion ? Is
that Hi.- law requires that such voting
places shall lie llxed and announced at
bast thirty <Ih;? before the election Is
I It del. which is now manifestly impos?
sible. The City Attorney Im? notified
Chairman II. E. Atkinson, of the <'oim
jcll Committee on Printing and Claims,
1 which has general charge of election
] arrangements so far as the Council Is
concerned, auditing and paying the
'bills of th ? Electoral Board. Mr. Pol?
lard holds Hint the thirty-day require
' mcnt i.- directory rather than manda
1 lory, and that If action Is now prompt
I ly taken and a list of voting places
properly published, the essential re?
quirements of the law will have been
'met.
