A SECONDARY HOSPITAL.

I TO THE EDITOR. | Sir, — 1 understand there is some j probability of tho Hospital Board | acquiring a property at Halfway Bush j for secondary hospital purposes. 1 | hone tho residents m this locality will j take immediate action to prevent it, ns i the presence of such an institution will | not ne desirable from any point of view, i and will depreciate the value of pro- i pertv in the neighborhood. I trust the , residents will immediately stop ans 1 such thing. A similar attempt sva- j made sorao few years ago and very j properly stopped, with the assistance ol | the member for the district. In any ease. Halfway Bush is not a suitable | locality for hospital purposes, being cold in winter and most inaccessible at 1 anv time.—l am etc. Resident. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l have been informed that the Charitable Aid Board have again inspected with a view to purchasing a site in tho Wakari district (TilhnriTs for the. purpose of erecting a oonsump- ] tive sanatorium and fever hospital, i Three, years ago the said property was under offer to the Hospital Board, and the residents rose in a body and strongly objected to it. We were then given to understand that n site had been purchased at Pine Hill for this i purpose. ' T wish to formally protest against this matter being again forced upon tie residents. To erect a building of that nature in tho heart of a rapidly-growing district and within a stone-throw of a public school (the membership o) which must he over 150) would he a grave injustice, for it would seriously interfere with the progress of tlie district. Within a radius of 1;. miles, and stretching directly from the proposed site, lie 12 dairy farms, which largely contribute to the City’s milk , supply. It is not necessary for me to i point out how essential it is to have, 1 as for as possible, a pure milk supply. Would the proxmiity of a consumptive sanatorium be conducive to that? To my m\nd tho site is not a suitable one. as it is outside the proposed drainage area and has no water supply. I would also point out that the citing winch which are so prevalent in our district during the autumn and winter month: are sufficient to condemn the site as likely to be a good one. Trusting that this matter will commend itself to your readers and call forth a unanimous and emphatic protest from all residents of Roslyn ami Wakari —l am, etc.. i W AKA 111 IIISIDKTX. !
