DAILY STATE CHRONICLb, 1 . n. ibgi.
4 A SUNDAY SEPLECTIOU. linst St. John's Hospital Close Its Doors? Special Cor. State , Chronicle. This noble institution, which has sheltered, tended and cared for so many of the city and county's sick and suffering, is about to be forced to close its doors for lack of funds rnr tlm wnrlr. Tlifi treasurer. lJ yjtiL i J vii " 7 Mr. A. P. Bryan, who has its in terest so at heart, and has faithfully labored for it for so many years, tells us he has literally not a cent to meet expenses, . which in such an institution are necessarily consider able. Having no settled income it is entirely dependent upon the charity of the Raleigh people. Its main-stay is the monthly Contribu tions which of late , for numerous reason's have been sadly neglected, but a committee of ladies, while it is an exceedingly unpleasant duty have undertaken the task of collect ing the back dues, and they hope, after accomplishing that, to have it done more systematically and re gularly, for while one is glad to give a small amount monthly, when it is uncollected for any length pi time it amounts to considerable proportions and, as there are so many calls on one's purse, these demands, however much they may be interested in the object. These ladies now hope to obviate this by having" the collect ing done regularly. The list of subscribers is however comparative ly small, but the committee hopes after collecting hack dues to enlarge it, which will necessitate canvassing the town and by a general and hearty response to the appeal, these subscriptions however small will naturally aid the carrying on of this great work for relieving and caring for suffering humanity it is indeed a noble work, and one that Chris tian people should consider a privi lege and pleasure. The Raleigh people are in a great degree ignor ant of the good that this institution accomplishes, and I think if they knew more of its workings and the struggles it has to maintain its charities, their interest in it would increase, and so much indifference in regard to it, would be done away. The hospital was started through the uniiring ener gies. of Rev. Mr. Rich, then Rector of the Church of the Good Shep herd a Guild, composed of the members of the Episcopal Church, was formed to organize the work and, while it has been under the auspices of the Guild, its charities have been extended to all creeds and classes, in fact there have not been more than ten or twelve of the above mentioned denomination in the hospital since its foundation they are admitted without thinking or caring what their taith may be its one object to relieve suffering, and whenever a patient desires it or needs ministerial council or ad vice, the pastor of their respective denomination is notified. As I have said, its charity is confined to the county and city poor, but there are, and have been, those who might have been more comfortable else where, but whose inducement for go ing there is the attention they re ceive, and it is, or should be consid ered so, almost a boon to young men who are away from home, and in case of sickness more particularly miss their home surroundings, to feel they have a place they can go to and meet with the kindness and attention they would receive were they at their own homes so it is an advantage to all classes, and I cannot believe it will be allowed to close its doors, for when we consider what it has accomplished with such scanty means, it certainly commends itself to charity loving people. One Who Knows. . ( EEPORM AT 1 THE P0ST0PFI0E. Maybe the General Delivery Will Now be Kept Open and the Mails Handled Better. Some days ago the Chronicle stated as a plain fact that in no other city the size of Raleigh was the general delivery window at the 1 postoffice ever closed during the day. The force which the postofiice de partment allows the Raleigh office is so meager that the general deliv- - - - - ery man has to shut his window and aid in distributing the mails as they come in. The complaint has reached the eye of the postoffice authorities, as the following letter from the sal ary and allowance division of the office of the first assistant postmas ter general at i Washington shows. It is addressed to the Chronicle and is signed by E. C. Fowler, act ing first assistant postmaster gen eral. ' . "This office is in receipt of a newspaper clipping wun eeruun correspondence relating thereto in the matter of closing the general de livery window in the Raleigh office in the afternoon, which the post master claims was necessary in or der to enable him to utilize his force in distributing mails. This matter is about to be investigated by an in spector of this department who will visit Raleigh soon lor this purpose. Praise From Sir Hubert. Referring to John Robinson's cir cus which exhibits at Raleigh next Tuesday, the Richmond JJispatch 6f Oct. 6th, says: ; v "There were two performances yesterday, which were witnessed by about twenty thousand people.They were as fine exhibitions as were ever witnessed in this city. The spectacle, "King Solomon, or the Queen Df Sheba," was an im posing display. The costuming was very pretty and the ballet dancing was extremely good. Some of the riding was far beyond anything that Robert Stickney did in his palmy days, and the acrobatic and trapeze performances were equally admira ble. Une point about Kobinson s cir cus is the evident refinement of the people as contrasted with those who have been here with other circuses. Take it all in all, Robinson's is one of the best shows that has ever been to Richmond. Britton Fierce and Charles Card well have secured the large four story warehouse, corner of Wil mington and Cabarrus streets, on a straight street from the depot, and will Lave it comfortably arranged for sleeping and boarding.
