Mr J; MeLeod, addressing the electors in the Ponsonby Hall, said he thought it extraordinary that such objections were raised to the proposed exchange of Domain sites for the erection of an infection hospital on Hospital Hill. His reason for supporting the exchange was that for as long as he could remember these diseases had been treated on this very place ■by the hospital. The land the city was to get in exchange was much better than that asked for a hospital site, which he described as nd man's land. It had been stated that the land fco be given in exchange was only a Chinaman's garden, bvvt it would, he said, make an admirable entrance to the Domain, besides providing a very suitable cricket ground or park, and it was incorrect to speak of the proposal as "robbing" the Domain. He believed that Mr Ah Chee, if asked, would forego his lease. Replying to a question as to whether he was in favour of a doctor, at the dictation of tne Premier, filching a portion of the Domain, Mr McLeod.said so long as they had a fair exchange there was no question of "filching)" and he was quite prepared to believe that Dr. Maeon would consent to any reasonable scheme agreed to by -the local* bodies.

In speaking in support of a vote of thanks and confidence to Mr McLeod, Mr J. Court touched briefly on this question. ; It amused him, he said, to find so little consideration shown to the sick and suffering poor by those who were opposing the exchange of sites.
