tress of a fellow creature have failed to exercise it. The unsheltered sick have been inhumanly neglected during the excitement created by gold discoveries, and many have died who with proper attention bestowed upon them might have recovered health. We think the demand for a public hospital at San Francisco is urgent. It is one of the first measures — if we would retrieve our crippled character as a christian community— that should receive attention. Strangers. — The place is astir with strati—the streets are lined with them.There are strangers confronting one at every street corner. At every open shop door strange faces are peering in and strange voices pricing the display goods of our "dealers."
