When it becomes almost certain that
the bone dry law had passed at the re
cent election, there was a stampedo for
wet goods, as the impression was that
as soon as the returns were in nnd cer
tified, that the governor would issue
a proclamation to the effect that there
was nothing doing iu tho way of inter
state commerce in the booze lino. Hence
the business of the express companies
from such wet sections ns Hornbrook
and Snn Francisco have been doing a
land office business- However, the sus
pense is now over as it seems that busi
ness in the wet goods line under the
legal restrictions will go on until the
legislature takes a hand at fixing a
proper penalty for a violation of the
bone dry law.

There is one thing certain. Snleni
intends to have an up-to-date hospital
at an early date and the business inter
ests of the community, backed by the
Commercial club have expressed them
selves in favor of one that will com
pare favorably with any in the state.
At the Marion hotel last evening,
when more than 100 representative
business men met to discuss the hos
pital problem, tliei opinion was unan
imous that right now was the than for
the citizens to get behind, the '-Salem
hospital hoard und subscribe an amount
to be added to the $25,000 already
available that will enable the capital
city to boast of a hospital equal to
those of the other cities.
The dinner was presided over by .
1j. Patterson who expressed himself ns
beinir glad to be regarded as a citizen
of this city, although he had really
strayed from the city limits.
Clms. A. Park, secretary of the Salem
hospital, explained the difficulty of
the hospital board in not owning their
land iu fee simple as-their holdings
,wero originally given for an orphan
home, nnd it would be necessary for
the ladies who are directors of the
Oregon Children's Aid society to join
with the hospital board in order to
give them a clear title. So f ir, the
ladies had declined to do this.
Building Is Outgrown.
Judge ('. I.. McNaiy. speaking of the
''Relationship of the Hospital to the
Citizens," referred to the amount of
money spent each year bv the hospital,
I the difficulty physicians had under the
handicap ot tne present conditions nt
the Salem hospital and he expressed'
tho beher that the present mitliling
had out lived its usefulness. "It is up
to us to do something for Salem. We
are a democracy of poor people, and
contributions must come from all, not
a few, and our hospital must be second
to hone in the state."
Dr. W. H. Hyrd claimed the distinc
tion of treating the first patient when
the hospital was first located on
Twelfth. The honor of being the first
patient was a hobo who fell irom an
S. P. train nt Woodburn. Anyhow, the
doctor often wondered how people
stood for that first hospital " I urn
clad the state has condemned the 5 1-2
ucres belonging to the hospital. If it
hadn't, I fear we never would have had
a better one. We do not want a make
shift of a hospital it must be a mod
ern 50,000 one of which we may be
Badly Needed Says Morse.
Dr. Morse answered the question
''Does Salem Want A New Hospital"
with a most-emphatic ''yes." He said
the conditions under which the phy
sicians had worked were most unfav
orable. Now that the board was com
pelled to build, as the state had taken
the old building, he hoped a -!-"( i.tlOO
one would be erected.
"Tt is about time that we lay aside
the old hospital and get ft new one,"
said Louis Lachmundl ''When a strang
er comes to town, wo want to show
him a 'hospital that reflects credit on
the city." He suggested that pos
sibly bonds might be issued to raise the
P. O. Deckebach toldthe good citi
zens something about Snlcm that bo
felt he just had to tell. It was to tliei
effect that Salem was in the habiof
having everything done for it, and not
doing anything for any one else. "We
take no interest in outside affairs and
want, everything to come to us," hoi
snid. ''If'it had not been for the
Cherrinns, Salem would hardly be I
known, except on the map. e warn,
to got rid of this moss-back spirit.
We showed a bad spirit and turned
down the Pendleton normal by a large
majority, and we are so self -satisfied ,
that we do not even uceornie. ine town
for the state fair. We receive and do
not give. Pntil we get otro this
spirit, we won't build a hospital."
Father Moore of St. Joseph's church
was strongly in favor of an adequate
hospital and referred to cities in the
state, half the size of Salem that had
large hospitals, completely equipped.
A Sensible Suggestion.
Frank Davey suggested that when
the new hospital was completed, that
each fraternal organization and each
chmch be asked to equip one room.
T)r Dnnev said that strangers in
coining to the city saw a lot of small j
wooden buildings, ine college campus
and the inadequate Salem hospital. He
was glad that the tini had come for
the building of a modern hospital as he
disliked very much to have his eastern
friends take a look nt the present
