WELLINGTON HOSPITAL. . (To the Editor.) -' ? I Sir, — I was much amused by the hysterical out- . burst of an ' Ex-Aldorinan ' in your contemporary n our court-house. If 'Ex-Alderman' could with draw bis gaze for a timo from the aforesaid building, and let his too susceptible optic rest upon an apology for a hospital, be will find a more worthy object for hia agitation, and a genuine ' cry of horror ' raieht emanate from his apparently ovor-burdoned chest. Each sentence in ' Ex-Aldorman's ' lottei might well apply to our hospital. Money has boon ?pent upon it from timo to'time without much ulti ' mate benefit. Now is tho time for a new building on a prominent site, where every eyo can soe ; and remember, there are such things aB sick, and poor. With the sale of the present hospital, and a Gov ernment grant and site (which I am aBsured is prac ticable), there should be no difficulty in erccting, a building that would be an ornament and a bless ing to our community.
