The Hospital Which Wlnfleld Wants
Can He Had by Prompt Action.
Tho attention of the Guthrie club In
onllod to the fnct that it prompt action
is taken this elt- can sueuro tho hos
pltal which Wlnfleld has bedn trying
so hard to secure and noont which so
much has been said lately.
Dr. Williams Inst night received a
telegram from Dr. Georgo Jjmcrscn or
Wlnfleld asking him to como to that
place on tho early morning train for
the purposo of conferring with Father
MelCeruan in rotation to this matter.
Prom Wlnfleld tho three will go to
Leavenworth to sue the bishop.
Neither Oklahoma nor tho Indian
territory has a hospital while there
aro throe locatod at Wichita. This Is
the reason that Wlnfleld will fall to
socuro the coveted Institution as it
has practically been docided by the
originators that the interest of tho
two territories would bo better sorved
by its location hero rather than at
Wlnfieid whero tho ground Is prac-
tically covered by tho Wlch to hos-
pitals. The Santa Fo railroad also wants tho
hospital here and Messrs. .sp Shar-
tel & Cottingham have been doing all
In their power to bring It.
Great crodlt la duo Drs. Williams
and Einorson for their untiring efforts
on behalf of Guthrio in this matter as
It Is owing almost cntiroly to tholr
olTorU that thin city will secure this
mit;h needed institution.
