I Work on the new hospital is pro
gressing finely. The plumbing, except
trio finishing touches, 8 completed,
and the plasterers now have the call.
Today finished the first or bruwu coat
on 45 rooms, and four rooms have re
ceived the whlto coat. In all there
arc S9 rooms In the building, and
rnomas Keller, the constructor, ex
pects to have his contract finished
and ready for Inspection bofore the
16th prox. The system used all over
the building is the adamant, ami this
s the second building ln tho city to
, be treated with It. The other, which
was also plastered by Mr. Keller, Is
the addition to the Field school build
ing. To all Intents and purposes tho
process might actually bo adamant
so far as hardness and durability aro
concerned. It Is applied either on a
rough wall, or to lath, exactly as any
i"UBiur is nppneu. The results
aro vnRtly dlffprent, however.
j Yesterday was seen Wck atter kick
administered by a big foot en
cased ln a heavy boot, upon the sides
of a room In which the adamant plas
tering was hardly yet dry and no
, more scratches or Indentions were ln
evidence afterward than as though
the kicks had been administered
against a granite' monument; neither
was thero any evidence of cracks or
of tho process being loosened. The
white coat Is equally as denso and
hard, tho difference being altogether
In the color and grain. The operating
, room, which Is 20x2G feet In size, and
i the drug and Instrument room, are
wainscoted to a height of four feet
with adamant tiling. Every room in
tho structure will have tho adamant
finish. The building will havo accom-
, modatlons for about SO patients, in
cluding the wards, which will hold
about 30. There are 50 individual
rooms, it has been definitely settled
that the building -will bo equipped
with an elevator, and that the motive
power will be steam from the general
heating and power plant in the base
ment. The elevator shaft is 70 feet
In depth and 8x8 feet in diameter.
Tho proposition to operate tho ele
vator with hydraulic power was aban
doned some time ago. Thero will be
from two to four bath rooms on every
floor, and a complete complement of
linen closets and store rooms. The
plans for the building admit of tho
iiiiiimun in ine luture of two wings,
each 30x80 feet, if the business of
the institution should warrant expan
sion. The plans admit of the build
ing of a tower at the Intersection of
each whig with the main building.
The hospital is confronted right now

Arid lands, which at the present time produce very
scant crop1?, could b irrigated and thereby increase
their product tenfold bv having water pumped from the
Columbia river with tin help of gss and oil for fuel.
Think of the vast benefits to tins region. The test of oil
as a steam-producing fuel was made ars ago; it is noth
inn new; its value has been well established, and the only
thing needed to bring it into universal use was the dis
covery of an inexhaustible supply Oil fires a boiler
ithree and one-half times quicker than coal; has a greater
efficiency and cleanliness requires less room and is far
cheaper. Railroads, sit-amships and manufacturers,
commerce of every description finds greater saving pos
sible by the use of fuel oil,
Active Operations
One of the largest, modern standard drilling rigs has
been put into operation near the Washington side of the
Columbia river.
Our Drillers
Our drillers are old experienced men at the business,
and if there is any possible way of getting results, we are
positive that they will accomplish such ft is the univeral
opinion that the surface indications compare favorably
with any of the gs and oil fields in ihe United States.
Several experts who have investigated the discovery make
this report.
General Manager on the Field
Ross Beardslcy, our efficient Vice-President, and one
of the first discoverers of the gas, is in charge of (he
company's interests on tie drilling ground. A more en
thusiastic and earnest worker, tully alive to the interests
of all the stockholders, could not be found anywhere.
Fortunes in Oil
The wealth made aud to be made in the production and
marketing of oil is likewise so apparent that it is
almost needless to recite the figures and comparison. No
other proposition has ever supplied such riches as have
oil wells for the amount of time and money invested in
them. Oil is so easily handled alter a well is secured and
so short a time is needed before results can be obtained,
that it is the quickest dividend bearer- The Standard Oil
Company in 1897, 1808, 1899, 1900, 1901 and the first
part of 1902, have paid 202,000,000 in dividends.
