l to he Accepted,
city hospital seems to be play
mg in pretty good luck.
With a great big fair, which greatly
(chanced its exchequer and with al
$2,000 approp: iation from the .leiiyll
Island club .here comes another offer
of SI,OOO.
Just previous to the adjournment
cf the city council last night Alderman
I owning secured the tiixir and an
nounced to council that Mr. Baker, oi
li e Jekyl Island club, had advised him
tl ala certain member of the organiza
(-on was willing to donate SI,OOO to
ihe city hospital in Brunswick, if the
city was willing to make neper tenia
loan was the case with t’-e $2,000
previously donated by the club. At
ccr'iian Tiovvt "g stated that lie would
ike smiVe definite instruction from
council bafor: replying to Ihe com
,u miicat lon of Mr. Baker.
Alderman Aiken took the floor and
severely arraigned the council of last
year for having made the contract
with the .lck.il Island club, providing
ior ihe $2,000 donation. He said it
'ins not a donation and am.i i: ke l it
us a long-bended, far-sighted, dollar
and ten cents for one dollar scheme,
whereby rich (orporation cares fur its
infilc.ted at the hands of the Brunswick
oospltal. lie said that when he was
fust, elected to council that he believ
ed that Jekyl island had ahsololcdy do'
i aied the money, hot later, when con
i'tinted with ilie facts he had found
i ot that it was neither a donation or
an myi roprial'on, but was simply a
scarp scheme on ihe part of the Jekyl
Island chib to provide a hospital for its
s:ck.
However, M", Aiken said that it was
no worse to lake the $2,000 at that
time than it would be to take the sl,-
U 0 al this time and he concluded by
l (Ovlng that the offer of Mr. Baker
to donate $1 (00 be accepted on the
same basis that prevailed when tne
.'J.imiO was ('mated. The motion pre
vailed, and the chances are that, the
i.osipital will r.et liie additional thous
and dollars.

This question Is familiar with t.h#
general public. At a meeting of coun

nance giving stevedores this right was
denied. AL a subsequent, meeting this
clause was repealed and last night a
strong petition was read from a large
number of preachers asking council to

When the matter was reached la
