At the Board ol Trade  meeting the  report of which appeared in The Ledger   last evenm**-,  an interesting   discussion look place on the .question oi  the  advisability  of  moving to  build  n hospital   in   Ladysinith.   The  question  is  one of much interest  to all  people of  the city,  it gives food   for  thought   and should  have  their earnest    considcrat on.    While realizing  Ihat  a hospital  locally would  mean a  considerable expense lo  the business  men of the city,  those present at the  Board of ,>Teadc meeting- on Thursday  seemed quite     willing to hear their  part  of    thc burden,   and  contribute  their share towards  the maintenance  of A local 'hospital if .ways and means  could be devised  to have such  an in-  _ stitu'tion  introduced in the city.    The  advantages  of a local  hospital       are  nmiiifold, land     in a mining      town,  where accidents���������ofteii   very serious-  are  unfortunately,  such common  r>c-  currenecs,' a hospital is;needed   above  all* things.  We     have     before pointed out  the  rislM? run in  moving patients to Na-  ,    naimo  for   treatment,   and evidences  arc not  wanting   that a  hospital  locally   would  have caused      the    saving  of  more than aoc life.   To     instances of this nature we will not icier,   but  our readers   will   readily  .1-  gree that in more (than one case   the  ^moving  of   a sufferer needing  hospital  ,   treatment    to   the neighboring  town  '���������has resulted   fatally.   The journey  by  train cause-*., much discomfort      to   a  patient,- and  this,   together with   ihe  delay  experienced   in  many cases   is  fatal   In cases  Avhere operations   of a  serious nature are necessary a       pa-  tieot,     after     a tedious   journey   by  1 train,   and  moving   from  the railway  ..station to the hospital, is,never in a  fit condition be he operated  on,   and  to operate  at such   times ������������������ would  l-e  Very   liable   to     result  disastrously,  while delay  is also  lil-ely   lo he <������������������.,-  ually unfortunate.   'I here  is     not an  intf-lliccnt man or woman in tlu city  "who  would  not  rejoice to  see a hospital  built here, and the danger     of  thc present state of -afTaiis abolished.  Tlu cost of. the erection of a hospital is a consideration of minor     importance,-,  iuJHnparison with    'the  question  of  tlr^maintenance of  such  an  institution.    Not long  since      the  citizens received a very generous .proposal from Mr. James Dunsmtiir. He  offered,   wc learn,  to  donate a    site,  and give  the  lumber that   would    be  required  for   the  building   .*.   , L  ?\v-  tal, and supply the water  for     thi*  same free or charge.   The people were   -\  called upon  to furnish  labor,  and  io  maintain  the institution,  but at thai  time the  pul.lic could not see   their  ���������way    clear logo on with the work.  We have no  doubt that the company  would still he'willing to help gcnei-  ously  in     thc erection of a hospital  here.   The  place need not  be a lat*L,e  one to stait with.    A small  uniidi;i;\  with a public and piivate ward wo-dd  suffice for thc present.  Agreed then that Ladysmith co'iU  build a hospital, we come. to. the all-  important question, "Could Ladysmith support a hospital?"  ..Tho expense, it is admitted, Avould  be large, and every citizen would be  ..expected to do his share in defraying  the same.

We do not wish this  to he inter]-re  tated  as any  onpositif n on  our part  to  the collection that  is now being  ta'-en  up  for   the .Nanaimo  hospital.  We are well   aware  that the citizens  of Ladysmith arc deeply-indebted to  the hospital of th,:* neigliborjnp; town  for excellent treatment many people  of this city have received   there.  Ladysmith  people cannot do too much  lo  help   the   Nanxim'o hospital frjo'ard  and   we hope  the  collection  talien   up  will  afford  substantial   financial    assistance   to   thc  hospital.    However,  we are of  the opinion  that  it would  lc time and labor well .sicut- to as-  ���������cfrlain  the feeling 0f  the community  in  regard to tha  erection of a hospital locally.   We have snolvi-n  with     a  1 umber of citizens,on the suibgecuand  o'ur interviews have led,us to*believe  that the movement "would  be well received  by the  majority.  At  all     events, it would be wcll to know   the  c-ninion of the'city. There is no doubt  ihat if Ladysmith could  support     a  hospital the erection  of one would Ire  a step- in   thc  right  direction.
