At the meeting of the Board of Direc
tors of the Butler General Hospital, last
Friday evening the contract was award
ed to George Sohenck. at about *12.000
the bnilding to be erected immediately,
and be finished next winter. The main
front of the building w : ll be eighty feet
long: it will contain two stories of brick,
with finished basement and attic, jwir
lor. sun parlor and twenty-one l**d
It will be a handsome building, with
every modern convenience for the care
of the sick and disabled: and it will be
a credit to tiw t.Avn.
There has considerable talk
about the site selected bnt it is crit
icized alone by people who have not
been upon it. or who had "an ax to
grind" in the matter.
The view from the little plateau ui«>u
which the building will stand is one of
the best about Butler: the lot can be
ma le easy of access and will be easily
sewered: water can be obtained from
the springs above it: a gas line runs
along it. and the noise made by the en
gines whistling and passing trains s
not as distinct there as on the opposite
side of the valley.
Robinson s pest-house talk is ridicu
lous. and his whole communication in
the Butler Times is venomous and mis
leading. The chief feature of that com
munication is his anxiety to make it
known that Judge Greer is with him in
this matter. That, however,~was taken
for granted by people who know the re
lations existiug between the two men.
This hospital will Ih* built by private
subscriptions; it will l>e a credit to the
town and county, and a blessing to the
unfortunates of the community, and
we predict that it will receive fair treat
inent from the future Legislatures and
Governors of the State of Pennsylva
