MAY 96. 1903 = ~ "" l‘RI( K ONE ( KM. = THE MAYOR AND “THE JOURNAL.” An Editorial In the Repub lican Organ Causes the Executive Extreme Surprise. THAT NEW HOSPITAL GIFT “Journal’s” Attack Brings a Lengthy Rsply From the Mayor. i _ In reply to the column and a lialf edi torial in yesterday’s "Evening Journal” under the caption of the New Hospital Project to Be Abandoned, Mayor Fagan this morning gave out to reporters the following signed statement:— "I have read with profound astonish ment the attack made upon me by the "Evening Journal” in relation to the new City Hospital. The “Journal” has been misinformed as to the facts. It makes the following assertions directly or indirectly. “1. The new City Hospital project is to be abandoned. This is not true, nor has the abandonment of the project, or even its temporary delay been so much much as contemplated or suggested by me. 2. That I have concluded^to make the new Hospital wait for the public bath and new schools, including a new High School. This statement is without the slightest basis of fact. “3. That Mr. Zabriskie has offered1 to give $150,000, half of the proposed cost, and that Dr. McGill has offered to give $20,000, and that these offers, at least that of Mr. Zabriskie is still open; that these funds are available for Hospital buildings in connection with such money as the city might appropriate. There is not any basis for such statements. Neith er Mr. Zabriskie or Dr. McGill ever made any such offer. Mr. Zabriskie offered to give $150,000 towards the new Hospital upon the condition that a like amount was raised by private subscription by other citizens of Jersey City. Dr. Mc Gill offered $10,000 upon the, same condi tions. These funds have never been avail able because the condition could not be met. I personally devoted a large amount of time in trying to meet the conditions of these offers but failed. “4. That, as Mayor I had an oppor tunity to carry out the following plan: —To abandon the present hospital site and buy a larger site in a more desir able section of the city. That funds were available to buy this site and build hospital buildings. That the Zabriskie and McGill subscriptions were available towards the erection of additional build ings, but that this plan has been aban doned without reason and the Hospital Commission left without means to pro vide a hospital of any kind. That I now propose as a substitute for the foregoing plan, to patch up the present hospital, to repair the leaky roof and to put cots in the cellar, and to postpone indefinitely the building of a new hos pital These statements are incorrect, I have had no opportunity to carry out the plans suggested. The funds for such a plan have not been available and can not now be obtained. The Zabriskie and McGfil offers have never been available. The Hospital Commission has not been left without means by me. I do not now and never have proposed to abandon or postpone the building of a new hos pital or to spend one dollar in repairing or renovating the present hospital On the contrary, when such a plan was suggested, I vigorously protested against it. “The real facts are as follows:—After I assumed office a law was passed pro viding for an issue of $300,000 of bonds for a new hospital. I appointed a board of trustees under this law. The first attempt of the board to act was thwart ed by legal proceedings, by which the validity of the Hospital act was at tacked. This suit has absolutely pre vented the selling of my bonds under that act, and delayed the hospital one year. At the last session a- new bond law was passed, but a companion law intended to meet the legal objection against the present Board of Trustees failed of passage because of the opposi tion of the Democratic members of the Legislature from Hudson County. After the Legislature adjourned I made a new attempt to get the hospital built. The plan originally* proposed was to abandon th« present site, to buy a new site on the --\ Languor and weakness, due to the depleted condition of the blood, are overcome by Hood's siarBaoarina, tii* ^reat vkaliu*f. Boulevard in Greenville, to plan a hos pital to cost $500,000; to spend $300,000 upon lauds and buildings now, leaving the remainder to be raised hereafter. At first I inclined to this plan and ac quiesced in it. Afterwards, as I be came more familiar with the subject, and with city affairs I changed my mind. I found widespread opposition to going to Greenville and abandoning the present site. Dr. McGill opposed the idea. Dr. Bauman, one of the trustees, al ways opposed it, and I believe, finally a majority of the other trustees opposed it also. My reason for finally opposing this plan was twofold: a hospital in the suburbs is inconvenient and inaccessible, it would abolish the dispensary privi leges which are now available by some 13.000 poor people annually. It is too costly a plan to be carried out in the present condition of the city’s finances. The demand for money, for more schools, more teachers, more police, and firemen, fire houses, sewers, street pavements, parks and other pressing needs of the city is so imperative that I concluded that the amount to be spent upon a hos pital should be cut down. I, therefore, favored the following plan: That we stick to the present site, that we buy additional adjacent laud, that we tear down the present structure, and in place thereof build a new hospital of brick, to cost about $200,000, so planned as to admit of extensions in the future as needed. This money would build a plain, first class hospital, adequate for the needs of the city for at least ten years to come, and, with extension, it will suffice for a generation. This is the plan I favor. It is going to be carried out. I pledged the people a new hospital from the day of my inauguration, I have striven to redeem that pledge in the face of hostile personal and partisan opposition. I believe the plan I favor can be carried out, and before the ex piration of my term of office, I mean to see the contract let and the work begun. If I cannot get another physician to take Dr. Dickinson’s place, I will appoint a layman, if I cannot get a layman I will go on with the present members of the Board. Upon one thing the public can rely, the new hospital will be built and built'forthwith unless it is delayed by hostile legal proceedings. “Respectfully t* •. “MARK M. FAGAN “Mayor.” -♦-: PUBLIC LIBRARY CIRCULATION The record of circulation of books for home reading for the week ending May 23, 1903, was as follows:— General works, 100; philosophy, 38; religion, 42; sociology, 228; philology, 0; natural science, 331; useful arts, 134; fine arts, 97; literature, 577; fiction, 3,233; juvenile fiction, 2,291; history, 542; biography, 1,173; travels, 322.

The Police Board last night fixjd the estimate of the amounts of money re quired to run the police department for the next fiscal year as follows:— For salaries.$419,058.52 Claims. 20,220.00 Hospital. 10,370.00 Maintenance of hospital. 20,500.00 Pensions. 15,548.80 Police judges’ and clerks’ sal aries. 10,000.00 Total.$502,303.32 There is a deficiency of $10,000 in the pension fund account, and an appropria tion for that amount is to be included in the estimate. For some time past the financiers of the city have slighted that fund and there have been numerous, ■etirements of late, and these have drained the fund considerably, and it is at pres ent in bad shape. Most of the men of the force now are young men and the fund will, if put in good condition now, be enab|£d to strengthen itself.
