Remodeling work on the female ward of the Watertown state hos pital, one of the largest of the In stitution's buildings, will be start ed this week. Estimated cost of the repairs will be between $2,000 and $3,000. The contract has not yet been let but bids were opened in Springfield today under direc tion of the state board of building and public improvements., i A new root will be added to the female hospital and a part of the walls on the third and top floor of the building rebuilt The rebuild ing or the latter was made neces sary by the damage done to the old walls through leakage of the root Excess dampness caused crumbling ana warping but the hospital au- tnonues believe the addition of roof of new design will .do away witn miM em. Dr. C. C. Ellis, temnorarilv in charge of the hospital, stated that work would be begun on the hos pital as soon as word was received from Springfield, probably within a day or two. Many of the rooms on the top floor can not be used until the work Is done, thus delay would cause congestion on the other noors. outer institution buildings in neea or minor repairs will be at tended to under the same contract - STUDENT PARTY .

The latter were reoresented bv Senator M. R. Carlson. The physicians asked ex emption; . the Commercial dub "condemned'' the whole works; the merchants sought exemption for the physicians and a revision to the half-hour rule.; Senator Carlson suggested a half hour time limit between the hours of 8 and 5 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays1 and Fri days and an extension to 9 -o'clock in the evening on aSturdays. Council Poxsled.1 ' Aldermen are puzzled as to the legality of placing two cltyj propositions, the increasing of the city hospital tax, levy to 3 1-3 mills and the election of a successor to Alderman Elmer Morgan ot the Sixth ward, on the ballot this No- vember." Miss Anna W. Anderson, city clerk and city authority on elections, contends that no munic ipal affairs can be voted on at a fall election. The word "regular" referred to In the legal statistics, she declares, ' means regular city election when applied to municipal affairs. It is therefore dbubtful whether Moline .voters will have opportunity to decide these two matters at the regular fajl eelction. Elmer E. Morgan's resignation was presented to the council last night the alderman stating private busines sinterfered with his alder manship. socialists petition council Petitions asking tor permits- to conduct street meetings on Satur day, Sept 25, and Saturday, Oct, 2, at the comers of Sixth avenue and Fifteenth streets and Fifth avenue and Sixteenth street submitted by members of the Socialist party were granted by the council last night1 The petitions give evidence ot the revival of the old Socialist party ot Moline which apparently had been wiped out by the communist labor party.
