'a he Commission desires to state to you lully what has been done at the several institutions, and taking mem up m oraer, the lirst part oi tn.s re port will relate to tne hospital at liaieifrh. htate Hospital at Kaleigli. Since this ConimisMon was appoint ed it hao purchased lor the italeign Hospital l,loV acres ot land, known as the "Grimes land," for which the Commission paid the sum ot $iij,50u. As stated in our former report, the Commission aiccovered atter its organization that the hospital at Ral eigh was in a great many -respects in ferior, especially in buildings, sani tation and equipment, to the hospital An over-h ud electric light system to light all the o! 1 and new buldings on the ground, including an arc cir cuit for lightirg the grounds arouni the new and old buildings, has boon installed. The old building is now be ing re-wired so that it can be lighted by electricity. It was found cheaper and more practicable to use electricity lor lighting the hospital than to use ras, and as he oil wiring through the building was unsuitable and had been condemned by the State Insur ance Commissioner, it was found ne cessary to install entirely new wirins for the old buildings. After thorough investigation and examination, and after coming to the conclusion that it would be cheaper for the State to buy water from the Wake Water Company, we secured a new contract with the Wake Water Company by which water is now be ing furnished to the Raleigh hospital rP 'he rate of six cents per thousand gallons. v e also, after a most painstaking examination and investigation, and after having sought the advice of different electrical cjryrts. decided that it would be cheaper and to the best interest of the State not to install an independent electric light system for the Rcleigh hospital, for the rea son that the rate offered to the hos-p-'al by the Carolina Light and Powpt Company at 3 1-2 cents per kilo watt by female attendants. This building enables the hospitnl to provide for 10 2 .'tdditioaial female patients at that jnertuntion. Thi building has been entirely furnished and turned over t' tb Stnt hospital, and is now be ing occupied. M Morganton a colony of thee vviPVng? was erected for male pa tients.

In mating this new addition new toilet rooms and a complete new system of plumbing, with modern sanitary plumbing fixtures, was provided for in some of the old wards, and the old unsanitary plumbing fixtures re moved. We also erected ,at Raleigh one building for best class of con valescent female patients, providing for ICO additional females.

"I imagine that Dr. Cheroot, th P'rench explorer. ad Lieutemnt Shackleton. and Captai- S?ot. of Royal English Navy, will encounter I retty much the same obstacle? in ih- nsretic circle in their attempts to fnd and locate the Sou'h Pole of th Earth's axis, amid the ice and shtaw. rnd sunshine of the Anarctic Cir ! of the Globe. To my own mind it is possibly by the irsmmentality of the magnetic need!e to follow it and reach the Magnetic Pole ry exploration hit to fnd Ihe North Pole of the axis of the Earth, it would not be poible. I believe, to know with certainty you had reached it, if you did reach it, except by astronomical observations, if they were possible, t by known? and measuring th" length of the radium of the polar circle, wh!ch, aeoording to McDuffe. can be calculated to a mathematical certainty; and with 1b Compass reversed atual!y measure it a,s in a land survey i'rnm the ascer tained Magnetic Pole, and away from it, the distance along the radius of the circle from the circumference, frrn tbo VTagnetic PoT to the renter of the North Pole circle. And wh"re the radius of the polar circle ends, mrasurincr from th North Magnetic Pole, would be found te center of th circle, and consequently the Noth Pole of the axis of the Earth. A.d the same applies, of course, to th Sruth Ma emetic Pole and the South Pole of the Earth's axl. "But it should be remembered that while McDuffie wrote in his article that the radius of te circle whih the Magnetic Pole describe- around thf North Pole of the Earh's axis might be calculated from the data he bd w1tipinti!"l preiin. h did not give us the length of thi ra iju. ir s many miles, but in degrees for he was concerned at the tim o-ly v !th the reasons why the Mignetic Needle varies from natural causes as certained by his mathematical calculi tions, from clearly ascertained and ad mitted seientif e data set forth in his article; and, he waa only by 5uf,h thoroughly admitted sclnjfic fa"ts. attempting by mathematical calcMK ticn to prove te part'cnlar proposi tion why the needle varies from ti"! to time at the very same place on the earth; and. also. how to Px with mathematical cprtainty what the va riations hae, or will amount to for any particular place t'me of r1 onhner as the Earth revo'ves annually around the Pim. and the Magnetic roles revoP-e in 85? years, around tin poles of the Earth "I do not myself profess to he a Fcientist of any H-d. either terrestial, geoeraphical. gro logical, or astrono mical, as my friends and acau-'int-ances well know.
