MASS MEETING. A Committee to Go to Washington to Look After Matters Concerning This Yard. A number of the navy-yard men met at the City Hall last night for the pur? pose of discussing tho overtime busi? ness. The meeting was called to order by Mr. AW F. Robinson, who was made permanent president. Mr. Robinson said that he had been appointed one of a committee to pres? ent the resolutions adopted at the last meeting In reference to overtime to Congressman Wise. He had performed that duty and that Dr. Wise had I brought it before the House and ex- I pressed the hone that the bill would ' soon be passed. He had this meeting; called because a number of woi kingmcn had said that the overtime business WSfs dying out. Others thought that a committee should be sent to Washing? ton to present the matter before the Senate, and that he was desirous of hearing the opinions of those present. Mr. D. J. Reardon said that Senator Daniel had introduced a bill making eight hours a day's work on all gov? ernment work in private yards, and that it was to the Interest of the work ingman to endorse the same; also to . nd use the efforts of the boards of trade of the two cities iu their efforts to try and gel a battleship at this yard. He said that the Federation of I Labor and the labor unions and boards of trad,, of the two cities had endorsed tii- eight-hour bill, and that the union had appointed a committee to act in | conjunction with their committees and a ei.mmitl.-e from the Councils. lie therefore, thought that a committee should be appointed from this meeting to act In conjunction with the other commll.s. and that while they wore using their efforts In behalf of a bat? tleship, the eight-hour law and the .vciiln-.! v. dl ?. h -. i.e. considera? tion. On motion, Mr. Tf. c. Herbert was appointed a committee of one to accom? pany the other committees to Wash? ington. The committee on soliciting funds was requested to aid In securing a sutli cient amount of money to keen Mr. Herbert in Washington as long as it was deemed advisable, to work for th< interest of the overtime bill. The meeting adjourned subject to a call of the chairman. 'TWOULD BE A GOOD IDEA. The King's Daughters Make a Most Generous l'ropositioti. For some time an effort has been made to secure a hospital for this city. Various plans have been suggested. The medical fraternity organized ;i hospital association, and at one time it looked as if this much needed Institution was assurred. Once In awhile interest in it lagged, and little has been done. Mrs. Shipp and the King's Daughters took the matter up and gave entertainments and raised about $1,400. Mrs. Shipp raid? ing $S00 and the Daughters $600. Pour 1 lots on Bmtnctt street, between Green and rOlllnghnm streets, were purvhaso.ji. , and there the matter rested, and bill little interest has been taken since. The i King's Daughters became tired of wait- ' ing for the hospital to be built, and l rented a house at No. 40 Court stre.-t i and established a hospital In April last, since when much good work has been done. They have received Into the hospital, which Is quite small. 'JS pa- ! tients, some of them being poor girls w ho had to work for a living, und when sick had no homes or means ol sup. port. The other were nearly all strang? ers, who had no place to go t:o when sick. They were taken In, nobly cared for, mid not one cent was charged for the time they remained there. One <u two did make a small contribution ti? the fund, but the others had nothing to give, and left aft.-r recovering. There has been one or two deaths of oa ticnts, who were given a decent burial. There are but four bed chambers in the present hospital, consequently the ladles are much cramped for room, and have to tin n away people. A kindly disposed gentleman lias of? fered if those who have charge of the lots purchased will turn them o'rer to the King's Daughters, he will build a house on the lots with ten rooms or more, for sick people, and let the Italics lake charge and pay him back In rent, .ind that he will charge no more rent than they now pay for a much smaller pluee: Will not ? b?rge any interest on Ills Investment, and that whvi the rent received aggregates enough to par the j-n-nonnt Invested he will give thoan a . le.ir title to the property. The Daugh? ters also agree that should the place c ase to be used for hospital purposes they will turn it over to bo sold, and the money divided; or. if the trustees ?ee lit, it can be d<-voted to charity.

King off. red Import? ant resolutions looking to the appoint? ment of committees, whose duly It should be to adjust the dlffercfnces Which might arise between tho people of the city and the street Railways, In reference to complaints concerning the i service rendered, and all matters of that nature, and to use every Ihfbuencc j possible to retain the generaJ offices and shops of the Seaboard Air L-'lne in this city, both of which were unani? mously agreed to.
