Plan Is Being Considered of Putting It

The abolition of tho tubercular ward
in the Dauphin counrty almshouse and
the transfer of its dozen patients to an
i institution where they can receive the
same if not better treatment, has 'been
suggested as a means of providing quar
ters at the Almshouse for the Muuicipal
I Hospital which is proposed by the Di
i rectors of the Poor us a place for the
f treatment of patients suffering with
I transmittible diseases.
Should the Poor Board decide to open
the Municipal Hospital in the almshouse
it will be the means of saving, pri
| marilv at least, the cost of constructing
] a hospital building. However it is esti
mated that the cost of building and
equipping a hospital would not exceed

GENERAL RISE IN STOCKS
IN OPEN TRADING SESSION
Participated lu by the So-called Inter
national Group, Most of These Issues
Making Conspicuous Gains Over
July 30 Prices
/?.ty Associated Press.
Wall Street, New York, 10.30 A. M.
—The first o-pen session of trading in
all the shares listed ou the Stock Ex
change began to-day with a further
general rise which was participated in
by t'he so-called international group,
including I nion Pacific, Southern Pa
cific, Canadian Pacific, Baltimore and
Ohio and IT.l T . S. Steel. Most of these
issues made conspicuous gains over July
;i() prices, particularly steel and Cana
dian Pacific. Steel was offered in largo
blocks and Southern Pacific also
changed hands in round amounts. The
balance of the list was inclined to re-
I sume its upward movement of the two
preceding sessions. Within the first fif
i teen minutes, however, it became ap
parent that offerings were in excess of
•demand and numerous substantial reces
sions set in with declines of 1 # to 3
points below yesterday's closing.
Business fell away during the first
hour and prices continued to sag. Be
fore the end of tile morning session
practically nothing remained of the
opening gains. Instead, declines of l'i
to almost four points from top figures
were general. Union Pacific was heav
iest of the high grade shares. Tiiere
were indications also of moderate sell
ing in steel. I'tiion Pacific and Balti
more and Ohio for foreign interests.
I Honda were less active and irregular.
