WOMEN'S WARD AT DUNEDIN HOSPITAL.
TO THE EDITOB. Sib,—l observe that at the last meeting of the Hospital Trustees the chairman (Mr Houghton) stated that the funds collected for this ward would shortly be paid over unconditionally. I believe that the Trustees, instead of building a new ward, propose to adopt a wakeshift scheme and alter one of the present wards. If lam rightly informed, I beg to protest against any such misuse of the money, which was subscribed for the purpose of providing a new ward, and not for any temporary expedient. If the Trustees are so ungrateful as not to appreciate the efforts made by Dr Batohelorand the ladies who were awakened by him to a sympathy with their afflicted countrywomen, then the only course open to those ladies who hold the money will be to return it to the subscribers. It will be a thousand pities if the kindly feelings of the women of Otago for their suffering sisters should be quenched by those who, if it were not a libel on my sex, I should oall "old women." I trust the ladles who hold the funds will not be bo weak as to part with them unconditionally. -I am, etc., Subscbibeb. Dunedin, July 19,
