TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —Throe vears ago the Hospital Board had under consideration the purchase of somo property at Halfway Bush for the above purpose, but the residents roso_ in a body and would have none of it—public meetings were hold, petitions got up, and the project shelved, as it was thought, once and for all. Now it appears there is to bo another attempt to force this matter on us. If it was not suitable it is more unsuitable now. The situation has not changed, except that there are more houses in tho neighborhood, and a larger attendance at tho school. The residents are still as determined not to have this incubus in their midst. I think it is most unfair that wo should have to go through all this trouble again! The site is unsuitable—if the patients are considered; it loses the sun very early in winter, is exposed to the north-east and south-west winds, and has no drainage and no water. I am aware that a small ram has been placed in the creek on the opposite side of the road (on the corporation property) to supplement_ tho rail-fall, but this creek (immediately above) passes through a paddock in which cattle are grazing, and is dry in a dr> season. Finally, I think the City Council would not allow the building of a hospital for consumptive patients about 400 yards from a public school, a mile within the City boundary, and within the two-milo radius of the chief post office.—l am, etc., Health. November 23.
