Dslld a Hospital for tbc Colored
A number of the ladies of the city
! making earnest efforts to build a
hospital for the colored people, and
the project is being vigorously advo
cated by Mrs. "W.^ J. P. Liddell.
Her plan is to scenro MS names of
parties who will give eaeh, and
she has been mccUng with gredtfying
sncccsB, a large number of the names
baring been secured already. No
money is to be collected until the
fall list of 100 names is secured.
The site for the bnilding has already
been scoured. It is on Mcycn
street near the colored graded sohool.
Mrs. Liddell bas canvassed among
the colored people and they have
given her their most enthnsiastio sup
port, gnarantceing to bnild the honse
thomsclvoB. It is to he an institntion
exclusively for the colored race, and
it is the intention to turfi it over to
their care and keeping. To secure this
end, the colored people will have a
large representation in the board of
directors of tho institution. This
movemont is truly a noble one, and
wc hope that the ladies will find
their efforts crowned by abundant
success. It is a cause in which all of
onr people can help.—Chnniclc.
