Lieutenant Governor-Elect Wal
lace Consecrates Columbia
Institution Before Crowd
Association* President Tells Pur
poses of First Building of
Its Kind in U. S.
Albert J. Wallace, lieutenant gover
nor-elect. In the presence of a, crowd,
laid the corner stone of Columbia hos
pital, at Orange and Wltmet streets,
yenterday afternoon. Copies of the
dally papers of Los Angeles, a program
of the afternoon's exercises, another of
the banquet given at the Angelus hotel
last night in celebration of the event
by stockholders In the hospital associa
tion, a list of tho stockholders, names
of state officers and members of the
legislature, a list of the faculty of the
University of Southern California, and
many cards and names handed to the
chairman, wtra placed beneath tho
"This corner stone is laid for tho
glory of God and the good of human
ity," were the words with which Mr.
Wallace consecrated the building. He
"I wish to express my happiness at
being here among you at the establish
ment of another hospital. I am always
glad to Bee such buildings erected.
When I was traveling abroad I went to
Pompeii. AH through the land I looked,
for public schools, for homes for home
less children, for buildings such tea this
erected for the sake of helping suffering
humanity—but I found no such places.
"It has been my observation that
these features of helpfulness follow
only In the footsteps of Christianity.
With every hospital erected in our land
we are Just that much farther along in
our path of progression. It is a great
pleasure to me to dedicate this one."
With a smile the lieutenant governor
elect ended his address by saying:
"I have so worn out my voice during
the last few months that at this mo
ment I can talk no longer."
■ C. P. Drum, president of tho General
Osteopathic association, which is back
of the institution, is responsible fur this
new style of hospital.
"In St. Louis," said Dr. Drum, "there
Is a small Osteopathic hospital, which
admits no other practitioners, but this
is the first one In the United States
where all medicinal and surgical prac
titioners are Included. We chose the
name 'Columbia" because several other
hospitals In different parts of the coun
try by that name have been eminently
successful—we want It for a mascot."
The afternoon program was closed
by an exhibition of running concrete.
Dr. G. F. Bovard of U. S. C, the Rev.
Charles LaFontalne ajid tha Rev. Matt
S. Hughes of Pasadena were among
the other speakers of the afternoon.
Several songs were sung by a male
The building Is to be absolutely fire
proof and great attention will be given
to the beauty and cheerfulness of Its
surroundings, as well as to the prac
tical phases. The cost when finished
will bo $115,000, the equipment $40,000,
and the grounds, which will be ter
raoed and provided with attractive
automobile drives, at least $65,000.
Glassed-in porches, fitted exclu
sively with an eye to making conva
lescents feel at home and cozy, will
finish two sides of tho building, and
the avowed Intention of the manage
ment is to supply a dining room ser
vice which will be free from the usual
earmarks of a hospital. A roof garden
commanding a view from the moun
tains to the seashore, furnished with
flowers and ferns, will surmount the
entire building.
As a fitting close to the day the offi
cers and directors of the Institution
held a banquet last night at the An
gel us hotel, about 120 stockholders and
friends of the new Institution having
been present. Strictly informal in na
ture, the banquet served to bring
those who have made the new hospital
possible into closer touch with one
another and to allow the leading
spirits- of the enterprise to outline to
a certain extent its future work.
John S. McGroarty acted as toast
master. He was Introduced by Dr. C.
P. Drum, president of the Hospital
association, and after a few prelimi
nary remarks Introduced .Dr. William
J. Hayden, who spoke on "Hospitals
as an Investment." He waa followed
by Frank G. Tyrrell, responding to
"The Columbia Hospital." Others who
spoke and their themes follow: Dr.
C B. Dickson, "The Surgeon and the
Hospital;" Prof. P. B. Owen, "The
Hospital and the Public;" Prof. C. A.
Whiting "The Hospital as a School
for tha Sick;" Dr. Mary J. Green,
"Hospital Treatment for the Sick vs.
Home Treatment for the Sick," and
Dr. F. M. Collier, "Tha Hospital and
the Specialist."
Two Relatives Succumb at Age
Youth Dreaded
NEW YORK, Dec. 3.—For the reason
that both his brother and his sister
had died just as each was approaching
the age of 17, John Smyth, a young
resident of the upper east side, had
frequently expressed a fear that he
would never live to celebrate his own
seventeenth birthday.
Smyth was nearing what he consid
ered this crucial age when he fell
eight stories through the elevator shaft
of a new building at Broadway and
Ninety-second street today, and died as
the last rites of the church wore being

Mistaken Identity in Philadelphia
Murder Case Comes to a
Dramatic Climax
ing last night's revelation of mistaken
identity, tho police of this city were
compelled t.day to make a fresh effort
to Identify the man who shot and fa
tally wounded George W. Barnett, a
special policeman, and was in turn
killed by Barnett, who was looking
for burglars In West Philadelphia last
Monday night.
The body of the stranger, which had
been Identified by Leon Wiener of Bos
ton as that of his son, Hyman, has
been returned to the city morgue af
ter hay g been taken last night from
the train that was about to start for
Boston. Hyman Wiener, the supposed
dead man, who was found in a tender
loin saloon last night, is still detained
at the city hall. The elder Wiener was
dumfounded and at the same time
overjoyed when he was summoned
from the train as he was about to
leave for Boston and confronted by
his son at police headquarters! It was
a dramatic moment when the son was
brought Into the father's presence. The
det< lives looked for an affecting
scene, but Hyman, the Instant he saw
his father, became enraged and said:
"So I'm a dope fiend and no good,
am I?"
Tho father, grief stricken since he
thought he had identified the body as
that of his son and almost speechless
with the sudden developments, simply
said: I •
"I told only the truth when I was
asked. I am glad that you are alive. *

Projectiles Are Improved, but Ex
pert Says Defensive Methods
Are Not Keeping Step
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3.—The shot
appears to bo getting the better of the
armor in the never-ending contest for
supremacy between the two, according
to Rear Admiral N. E. Mason, chief of
the naval ordnance bureau. In his
annual report Admiral Mason nays that
the conditions and outlook with regard
to armor-piercing projectiles, formerly
unsatisfactory, have improved very
much during the year.
The quality of the shells supplied by
certain firms Is better, though the lack
of an adequate supply of large caliber
shells continues to be a matter of seri
ous concern. On the other hand, the
advance in armor has not been entirely
satisfactory so far as thick plates are
concerned, and certain new processes
have failed to lend themselves to the
installation of the armor on shipboard.
The older processes are being left be
hind by the improvement in projectiles.
But thin plates have shown marked
Improvement and the hardening meth
ods formerly limited to two-inch plates
have gradually been extended to plates
up to four inches.

The Craig Shipbuilding company lo
cated In Long Beach three years ago,
after having disposed of its former
holdings in Toledo. 0., where the com
pany built a number of big vessels,
many of which are now in the Pacific
coastwise traffic. Long Beach citi
zens subscribed $100,000 at a maps
meeting in the auditorium and bought
the tract of about thirty-five acres now
occupied by the ship plant. The site
was donated as an inducement to lo
cite the industry here. Since that
time from 200 to 360 men have been
employed at the plant almost continu
ously. The company first built a bier
steel hull for the dredger now working
in the local harbor, and later built a
$75,000 seagoing tug, the Virgil Bogue,
for the Western Pacific Railroad com
pany's use at San Francisco. The
firm had the lowest bid on the con
struction of a tug for the port of
Portland, Ore., but the commission
favored local contractors.
The General Hubbard was about
half built when the metal workers'
strike temporarily crippled the plant,
riveters and molders walking out. Mr.
Craig remained firm in his stand for
an open shop and gradually rehabili
tated his force of men. There are
more than 200 men now employed in
the yards, it is said.
Several hundred people were ad
mitted into the yard this morning,
having received personal invitations.
The rest of the spectators were lined
along the opposite shore, on the muni
cipal docks and at other points of

NEW YORK, Dec. 3.—Oscar Ham
merstein, the opera empreßario, is go
ing to quit this country for good and
will leave in January for England,
where he expects to open his opera
house next season. Mr. Hammerstein
said today:
"My business Is opera. I can <3o
nothing else. I must produce opera.
Since New York does not want me, as
the men who could have made it pos
sible for me to remain showed within
the last few years, I will go to London,
where I believe I am wanted.
"After forty years in New York, after
realizing my ambition and giving opera
here as it was never given before, and
then being forced to give up my work,
I shall go. Yes, I will Bell my theaters
if the offers I receive are sufficiently
large, and I shall live in London. That
is all."
STAMFORD, Conn., Dec. 3.—Alan
