The Work of Removing Ibo Debris) Began Yesterday?Tbe Necessity for II aale? Visitor Lennon Called Away-Contributions Yesterday. The work of removing the debris from the partially burned St. Vincent's Hos? pital was begun yesterday morning by a force of hands employed by Mr. Frank May, contractor, to whom the contract of rebuilding the Hospital has been awarded. Mr. J. Edwin R. Carpenter, the archi? tect. Is now preparing plans for the re? building of the Hospital, wlth?an addi? tion to the east wing. The new build? ing will be the same height, four stories, but the mansard roof will not be re? placed, a brick story being added In? stead, with metal roofing. The addition to the eastern wing will add several wards to the Institution, and make It much more valuable to the city than it has been heretofore. CONTRACT AWARDED. The contract to rebuild the hospital was awarded to Mr. May yesterday morning by Father R. A. Lennon. of Emmettsburg, Md.. the Superior of the Order of Sisters of Charity of Amer? ica, who has been here for several days. He left last night for Washington, the Superioress of the Catholic Hospital in that city having died early yesterday morning. HASTE A NECESSITT. . In speaking of giving out the- con? tract at this time. Sister Bernard said to a Vlrglnlan-Ptlot reporter that the Sisters believed with the insurance and the money raised, a sum large enough to pay for the rebuilding'will soon be In hand. Tt is deemed necessary to have the building completed as soon as possible, and the soliciting committees will make a rapid and thorough canvas of the city within the next week or two. The committees' have not met and begun their work yet, owing to the declination of several of the appointees, on account of their business conflicting with the work they are expected to do. YESTERDAY'S CONTRIBUTIONS. The contributions received yesterday by Sister Bernard will be found noted elsewhere. Among them was one of 150. Dr. P. St. L. Moncure replaced the nurses' books.

By a regretable typographical error in the notice yesterday of the new col? ored Y. M. C. A. building the state? ment was made that "the third floor will be used a ball and assembly room." This was written, and should have ap? peared, "hall and assembly room." of) For Itonnoke.
