SCRANTONIANS WHO WERE IN
They Wont Before tho Appropriation.
Committee of the Legislature and
Presented the Claims of Local In
stitutions for Consideration E. L.
Fuller and James P. Dickson Urged
That the Lackawanna Bo Made a
State Hospital Showed the Great
Need for Such Action.
At the meeting of the appropriations
commltlco ot the legislature hold Wed
nesday night at Harrlsburg, 13. L. Ful
ler ami James P. Dlckton appeared
In the Interest!! of the Lackawanna
hospital: Colonel 11. Jf. "Poles and Dr.
Jt. K. Ware for the Hahnemann hos
pital: Colonel E. It. Ripple and Hon.
If. A. Knnpp, for tho Homo for the
Krlcndlesit, and Henry Helln, Jr.. tho
Pennsylvania Oral school. Colonel
Itlpplo also looked after tho interests,
of St. Joseph's Foundling Home.
M. L. .Fuller was soon by a Tribune
representative yesterday on his re
turn to this city. He was very enthus
iastic regarding the future ot the hos
pital and is sanguine that the wishes
of a vast number of citizens will b
considered nnd that It will be made a
Elate Institution. Tfo had a most aat
isfni.'tory conference with Governor
Stone, who Is understood as being
strongly In favor of the proposed
change. From others It has been
learned that the appeal ot Mr. Fuller
and Sir. Dickson made a. most, favor
able Impression on tho committee.
ONLY TWO HOSPITALS.
It was thowii that there are but two
state hospitals in the anthracite re
gion, while eight are supported In the
bituminous district. Thtse two are at
Ashland nnd Huzleton, thus leaving the
northern field unprovided for by other
than spasmodic stato aid. The pro
posed district embraced by tho Lacka
wanna hcf.pital will include the four
counties of Lackawanna. Wayne, Sus
quehanna and Wyoming-, representing
a population of tiOO.OOn. Including if.000
workltigmcr. and voters.
A mote unusual circumstance een
nected with this change in relations
Is that the Lackawanna hospital does
not ask the state to assume any vestige
o" debt. On the contrary, the indebt
