Handsome Structure Formally Put into Use This Afternoon.
Rev. W. E. Toll and Rev. S. W. Chidester
Assisted in the Service.
This afternoon the formal opening and dedicatory ceremonies were held in the new Jane McAlister hospital, but they were attended by only a small number of people, one noticeable thing being the absence of men, only three being present besides the two ministers.
Rev. W. E. Toll made the introductory remarks calling upon Rev. S. W. Chidester to deliver the opening prayer.
Mr. Toll said in part: When I was requested to make a few remarks at the opening of the hospital, I asked myself if those loved ones who have passed away can see us here below and know what we are doing. I believe yes. Then how must that dear one, who made this hospital possible, feel when she sees how misfortune has followed this building and how much strife has been encountered. Let this afternoon be the beginning of a work of peace among ourselves and let us strive together to push this work along in the right way and carry onward in the only way in which success can be made of it. The right way is interpreted by some, to make, out of it all for themselves with no interest for others. By others who take up public work to work for their own glory, and the moment that glory becomes tainted to lose all interest.
There is only one right way and that is to work for the good of others. There are plenty of people in this city who can be better interested if this continued strife is ended.
Let us enter from now on with more prayer to God to sustain us in our good purpose. Peace among ourselves work while we can for good and God will bless us.
The president, Mrs. Spring, said: We are greatly indebted to Rev. Toll and Chidester, for their kind remarks and I hope we can all profit by them and make a success of our work.
About forty people were present. The fine new building presents a magnificent work and is in part furnished. One large front room has been beautifully furnished by the Presbyterian church and across the hall a similar one by Chas. Whitney. Arch McArthur has furnished another room. Rugs, tables, etc., were also donated by visitors today. The fine large reception room on the right from the main entrance presents a very attractive appearance. The large men's ward on the first floor to be furnished by Samuel Schwartz is the largest room in the building and will be fitted with ten beds and every thing complete for a men's ward.

First Patient to be Sent to New Hospital Monday.
What the Furnishings of Each as Donated, Consist of.
The first patient to be taken into the new McAlister hospital will be removed there next Monday and then the new building will formally be in use. From then on other patients will be put into the new building as the accommodations are ready and in a few weeks probably all of the patients now in the old building will be installed in the new one.
The first patient is one sent there by Dr. Knight and he is to have a private room and a special nurse to attend him, it being his privilege of course to have these special accommodations.
The ladies of the hospital association are just now extremely busy putting up beds, etc., and they are getting the building into usable shape as fast as possible.
All of the single rooms have now been furnished, that is persons have promised to take them and furnish them completely.
Those who have taken the rooms to fit our are as follows:
Third floor-Miss Mary Lyon, Royal Neighbors of Gurnee, Mrs. Thos. Hoyne.
Second floor-The doctors and lawyers, Arch McArthur, Mrs. C. E. Smith, Presbyterian church, Charles Whitney.
Each of the rooms fitted out by the above individuals and societies represented by expenditure in furnish will be about $75.00 per room.
Each room is fitted out in every particular and the furnishing was done following requests from the officers as to what was needed. Each room contains, among other things, the following: Bed, commode, mattress, bedding, rubber sheet, rugs, wardrobe, 2 chairs, one rocking chair, one bed table, one stand, toilet set, dozen sheets, two dozen towels, one dozen napkins, one and a half dozen pillow slips, two pair blankets, bed spread.
Thus, each who donated the furnishings for a room, gave in substance the above articles though in some cases the donors even gave more than we asked for.
Thus, while all the single rooms have been furnished, the wards are not yet all taken so far as promises to furnished them is concerned. Samuel Swartz is to furnish one large ward while the largest ward on the third floor is yet "untaken". Some kind and generous person is being wanted for to see if he will not look after this one department.
Then there are three smaller wards yet to be furnished, two of them, however, being considered by two persons who are thinking of giving the furnishings.
While the rates for the hospital have not been formally fixed, it is thought that the rates for accommodations in the wards will not be changed much from the present which is one dollar a day.
The individual or private rooms, however, are to be somewhat higher and will be taken of course only by those who can afford better than the average accommodations. The rates from the private rooms will be from $25 down to $12.50.
At the Arcanum meeting last evening, the members voted to furnish a room at the new hospital at a cost of about $75 to be known as the Arcanum room. This action, in view of the fact that the local lodge had a hospital arrangement with the Chicago lodges in obtaining a room in a Chicago hospital when occasion requires, is considered very commendatory.
