REPORT OF BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

DIX HILL,
RALEIGH, N. C., December 14, 1904.

To His Excellency, GOVERNOR C. B. AYCOCK,
Raleigh, N. C.

        DEAR SIR:--We herewith submit the report of Dr. James McKee, Superintendent of the institution which you have placed in our charge, and beg to call your attention to what we regard as urgent needs of this institution:

        
1. An annual appropriation for 1905 $ 75,000.00
For 1906 75,000.00
2. For Engineering Department, which includes three boilers, etc 17,500.00
3. Carpenter's house and equipments and dormitories for employees and laundry 8,500.00
4. For the purchase of land and erecting buildings for the increased accommodation of outside insane 90,000.00
5. Painting houses and repairs 3,500.00
6. For fencing 1,000.00
7. For reflooring portions of the house 1,800.00
8. Water rent for 1905 1,500.00
Water rent for 1906 1,500.00
9. Annual payment for lights for 1905 1,500.00
Annual payment for lights for 1906 1,500.00
10. For outstanding indebtedness 1,835.45
 /TD> $280,135.45

        While every best endeavor was made to avoid a deficit in accordance with law, we have been compelled to make a deficit on account of the condemning of the electric wiring in the house. To protect the property and patients against fire, connection was made with the Raleigh Gas and Electric Company at a cost of $1,000.

        The joint committee of the two institutions rendered its report, which so forcibly commended itself in detail as to the data obtained from the outside insane that it was unanimously adopted and commended to your especial attention and through you to the Legislature.

Very respectfully submitted for the Board of Directors,

JOHN D. BIGGS,
Chairman.

REPORT OF THE JOINT COMMITTEE.

To the Boards of Directors of the State Hospitals at Morganton and Raleigh:

        The undersigned committee, appointed by your respective bodies, beg leave to report the following:

        We believe a certain and well-defined policy should be adopted by the State either to provide adequately for its insane citizens or decline to do so in unqualified terms. If the latter policy is followed, the authorities of the different counties, knowing they cannot depend on the State, will provide for their insane the best they can, and the insane will have some care that is now denied to many. Under the present plan the counties wait for the State to build and the State does not and thus the insane are left uncared for.

        There is no need to discuss the humane or economical side of the question, for we assume that all are agreed that the public should undertake to provide amply for all the insane, especially those whose friends and relatives are unable to care for them.

        It is well known that North Carolina has not erected enough buildings to house all its white insane, but it is not certain how many are in their homes, in jails and alms-houses or roaming the country at large.

        The United States Census for 1900 does not enumerate the insane except those in State and Private Hospitals, and the census of 1890 was so notoriously and glaringly inaccurate in the enumeration of the insane that not the slightest credence is given it. The numerations of previous years are out of date and may be as worthless as that of 1890, but a study of the census of 1880 is interesting; the white population was 867,242, the insane 1,591, one insane person


Page 6

to every 545 of inhabitants; the negro insane was one to every 1,215. (Negroes under the foregoing should have room for 520; the whites room for 2,181. The negroes have room for 500; the whites room for 1,400. There are 20 negro insane on the outside to 700 white). We, therefore, must rely on the carefully prepared statistics of other countries and States. In more thickly populated countries there are slightly more than three insane persons to every 1,000 of population. Probably insanity is not so prevalent amongst our citizens, but we believe that two to 1,000 of white people in North Carolina are insane. The large number of applications on file in the offices of the two hospitals for white insane and the many letters of inquiries would seem to prove this number to be correct, but to be well within limits we will base our calculations on one insane person to 600 of white inhabitants.

        North Carolina by the census of 1900 had 1,263,603 white inhabitants; 779,049 in the Western Hospital District and 484,554 in the Eastern. On the basis of one insane person to 600 inhabitants we had in the State in 1900, 2,106 insane; 1,298 in the Western District and 808 in the Eastern. The Western District increased in population during the decade 1890-1900, 148,269, or 14,827 per annum. The Eastern District 66,143, or 6,614 per annum. At the same ratio the population in the Western District for the past five years has increased 74,133, the insane 123; in the Eastern the increase of population for five years has been 33,070, the insane 55. If these estimates are correct there are in the Western District 1,421 insane persons, in the Eastern 863, or a total of 2,284 in the State. The Morganton Hospital has in round numbers beds for 1,000 patients, the one in Raleigh beds for 400. These estimates show the need for an increase of 421 beds at Morganton and 463 Raleigh, and also that in the Western District there is one


Page 7

patient cared for to every 853 inhabitants, and in the Eastern one to every 1,294. It appears from the foregoing that the Eastern District needs room for more. To equalize the two districts there should be at Morganton 129 patients from the East. The yearly increase of the white insane in North Carolina is about 36.

        In accordance with the agreement of the two boards, 70 women were received from the East. On 22d of October there were 77 patients in the Hospital at Morganton from the East and 16 in the Raleigh Hospital from the West. It is plain that sending patients so far is expensive, and, everything else being equal, the Raleigh Hospital needs enlargement more than the one at Morganton.

        It is our opinion that in consideration of the large number of insane outside the walls of the Hospitals, who are in need, and the difficulty and expense of providing for so many at once, that dotards, paralytics, idiots, imbeciles and epileptics for the present be excluded or accommodations prepared for them in other places.

        Employment is the best remedy for insanity and farming is the best and most remunerative form of labor. It is estimated there should be an acre of land to every patient under treatment. The Hospital at Raleigh has felt greatly the need for land and this need cannot but grow greater as time goes on. We respectfully urge that this matter cannot be too strongly insisted on to the Legislature by your respective boards. Sufficiency of land is the one great means of reducing the cost of maintenance; it is not only a curative measure, but an economical one.

        It is absolutely necessary to make more room for the insane at Raleigh. The cost for their maintenance will be materially decreased by the purchase of more land and a cheaper water supply. They now pay two thousand dollars per annum for water and for the rent of land, which represents the


Page 8

interest on a capital of forty thousand dollars at five per cent.

        We again ask that attention be drawn to the large amount of tuberculosis in our midst, which we are helpless to combat with our insufficient accommodation for the tuberculous patients.

        There is a great demand on the resources of the State for every purpose and these resources are limited. We for this reason recommend that at present you ask for accommodation for the insane on a basis of one bed in the Hospital for every 750 of population. This would require about one hundred and fifty more beds at Morganton and three hundred and fifty at Raleigh. This makes no allowance for the yearly increase, and will not, in our judgment, supply the demand, but by excluding the classes we think under the circumstances should be excluded, it may care for the curable, violent and troublesome cases. The beds at Morganton should be limited to men, because of the excess of accommodation for women, 600 to 400 men; the beds at Raleigh to be divided equally between the sexes.

        The colonization of patients at Morganton has proved so efficient we recommend this be tried at Raleigh and increased at Morganton. If this be done more land will also be needed at Morganton. For obvious reasons it is better to have land joining the present holdings, but this is not essential; land more than three or four miles away can be utilized.

        We respectfully call your attention to an effort that may be made to change the State's Prison into a hospital for the insane. We believe this would be harmful to the State's best interests, and we know it is not and cannot be made suitable for the innocent insane. The laws governing hospitals and the general subject of insanity could be amended in some particulars with advantage.

        If the Legislature of 1905 should determine to provide to any large extent for the insane it would be the part of wisdom


Page 9

to appoint a competent commission to examine this great question in all its aspects before large amounts of money be spent. The best thought of this and all other countries should be studied and the wisest course adopted. There is a disposition to break away from the old plan of large, expensive structures to smaller, simpler, cheaper, and we believe, more efficient ones.

        We feel we have a great State, and we are proud of it. We cannot but earnestly hope that this subject of caring for its insane so long neglected may be systematically taken up and treated in a business-like way. If, after discussion, the General Assembly believes the State cannot afford to erect any more buildings, then it should so declare. If, on the other hand, it thinks our people can further and adequately provide for them, then this should be dealt with in a plain, business-like way.

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT.

John D. Biggs, Esq., President, and Gentlemen of the Board
of Directors of the State Hospital at Raleigh:

        I have the honor to submit, by custom and law, the biennial report of the State Hospital at Raleigh for the two years ending November 30, 1904. To this report will be found annexed the Steward's, and the accompanying tables of receipts and expenditures, the reports of the Engineer, Carpenter, Gardener, Stock and Dairyman and Matron, all of which will inform you of the operations of the respective departments for this biennial period. At the beginning of this biennial period, December 1, 1902, there were in this Hospital, patients--164 males; 233 females; total, 399. The number of male patients admitted during this period was 180; females 148; total, 328. The total number under treatment during the bienneum, 725; number of deaths, 32 males; 25 females; total 57. Number discharged as restored, 113 males; 63 females; total, 173. The per cent. of restorations based on admissions was, males, 67; females, 42; average per cent. of restorations, 54; remaining in the Hospital December 1, 1904, 178 males; 202 females; total, 480. Seventy-two were declined for the following reasons: for want of room, being blind, forfeiting beds, being paralytics, epileptics, imbeciles and idiots. The number of deaths has been 57; of them 4 were over 70 years, 5 over 60, 11 over 50 years, 17 over 40 years, 14 over 30, 5 over 20 years, and 1 under 20 years. Only one patient died of an acute disease, that was pneumonia. Tuberculosis comes in as usual as the cause of the greatest number of deaths. And just here it is well enough to suggest the necessity of providing isolation, disinfection and treatment for these cases. Cheaply constructed houses,


Page 11

or, what is better, tents, should be provided for them that their time might be spent in the open air, and during sleeping hours get as much oxygen in their lungs as possible. When these cottages or tents shall have become so infected as to be unfit for use they can be burned, and the loss will be small. A rgeat many cases of recurrent mania have been discharged that will return.

        While the mortality is greater than in the preceding two years, yet we should and do feel grateful that no unusual sickness or acute disease has prevailed on Dix Hill among the inhabitants.

        We have had no accidents, but have been unfortunate in losing 168 head of hogs by cholera. The infection was probably brought in by a hog purchased, yet the hog pasture has been in constant use for forty-five years, and cholera has invaded it before. The herd is being replaced by purchases, which have been an unexpected draught upon the maintenance appropriation.

AMUSEMENTS AND DIVERSIONS OF PATIENTS.

        The patients, nurses and male attendants assemble twice a week and enjoy dancing to the strains of sweet music. All of them thoroughly enjoy the music, and the effect is so apparent that music should be credited as one of the most potential remedies for the insane. Services are held every Sunday morning in the Chapel by Dr. T. N. Ivey, the Chaplain. The better class of patients appreciate these services. They are fond of the Chaplain, and look forward with great anticipation to his regular and prompt attendance.

TRAINING SCHOOL.

        The training school has been a success. The nurses are trained in the Hospital to bestow upon the patients that careful nursing for the advancement of their comfort and the promotion of their recovery. To keep their physical lives up to


Page 12

the highest possible sanitary condition by proper feeding, and by strict observance of regular habits in eating, sleeping, bathing and taking outdoor exercise is to be found the "royal road to recovery." The class appreciates this, and is working diligently and interestingly along these lines for the accomplishment of that purpose.

WORK ACCOMPLISHED DURING THE PAST TWO YEARS.

        Very few improvements have been added to the Hospital, as only one appropriation was made for any, and that was $5,000 for the special purpose of furnishing to the Hospital a purer and more wholesome water supply and all necessary connections and equipments thereto. The right of way, with all the necessary deeds, was obtained from the guardian of Frances Fuller Thompson through her plantation. The main pipe of the Wake Water Company was tapped, connection made and 2,800 feet of 8-inch iron pipe was laid and made to connect with pipes at the Hospital. The pressure was so great under this new service that the old corroded pipes throughout the Hospital had to be replaced with 1,100 feet of new pipe. Several new lavatories have been put in and 90 feet of drain pipes, and a great many old, worn-out basin cocks have been replaced by new and better ones.

        The water supply, for the first time in years, is pure and adequate, though it comes at a cost of $1,500 per year. A new 150-horse-power boiler was purchased and placed in a position west of the great stack, and protected by a frame building shut in and covered by corrugated iron. The cost of the building, breeching, masonry, house and connections by new pipes was $3,082.60. The condemning of the old boilers by the boiler inspector made it necessary to make this purchase. The special Examining Committee in their report to the Legislature of 1903 recommended an appropriation of $3,000 for the purpose of buying boilers. This boiler has relieved us materially, as it gives the old boilers rest, they


Page 13

being about burned out and not fit for persistent use. The Engineer, Carpenter and Tinner have been constantly employed in repairing. The building, having been in constant use for forty-six years, requires persistent watchfulness to meet the dilapidation that comes with time. The Engineer has been very busy and careful in looking after the old, wornout and inadequate boilers that have been in constant use for thirteen years, and but for his thorough knowledge of his business, his untiring energy and deep interest in the care of these unfortunate people, we were likely to have been without heat any time during the winter. Three new 150-horsepower boilers are urgently needed to take the place of the old, worn-out and condemned boilers. There is too great an area of building surface to heat for the boiler capacity, and if additional buildings, as asked for, are granted the purchase of them will be most important.

        I desire to call your attention to the ice plant, and reiterate what was recommended in the report of 1902. I stated that the ice plant is not at all equal to the needs of the Hospital, nor the cold storage, and for economy and convenience should be removed. If the proposition recommended for the construction of a new house is granted the cold storage and ice plant could be placed in that. The pipes in the cold storage and brine tank are badly corroded, and are leaking. During the persistently hot weather last summer we were obliged to buy ice to supplement our ice for use in the Hospital. It is necessary to have a 3,000-gallon brine tank. The one at present in use was bought second-hand six years ago, and was not properly constructed. The Engineer's Report will give you in detail the needs in that portion of his department. See Engineer's Report annexed.

        The Carpenter's Report annexed hereto will show that since his connection with the Hospital he has been very busy doing repair work.


Page 14

GARDENER'S REPORT.

        This officer's report will disclose the work done in his department and the urgent need of a greater acreage of land. Eighty acres adjoining this tract have been rented for $300 per year, with the privilege of five years. It has been the greatest help to us. It furnished a house for the Gardener, out-houses for farm hands, additional stable room and pasture land for mules and calves. Quite a number of fowls were raised there. The estimated value of crops harvested is $1,237, rent deducted leaves $937 worth of corn, potatoes, pease and ensilage on hand. The Hospital ought to have one acre of land for every patient. I would most earnestly suggest the recommendation of an appropriation of $10,000 to purchase land. It gives me pleasure to endorse the suggestions contained in the report.

PLANS FOR INCREASED ACCOMMODATIONS FOR PATIENTS.

        In the last biennial report attention was called to the necessity of providing for the outside insane. The report called for an addition both to the male and female wings, running in a westerly direction 172 feet and three stories high of the same architecture as the old building, giving 132 more rooms, these wings being contiguous to the heating plant, thereby economizing in attaching the heating pipes.

        The Executive Committee of this State Hospital met at the State Hospital at Morganton and agreed to admit patients to the empty beds in both Hospitals, regardless of residence, but legal by transfer. The Committee from this Hospital fully inspected the Hospital at Morganton and its workings, and were very much pleased with the colony plan recently adopted by the management of that Hospital. They inspected one building fully completed and filled with patients, with all the cooking apparatus and heating apparatus installed. They were impressed with the neatness of the system and


Page 15

of the house, yard, barns, piggeries and poultry yard. The patients were contented and evidently intent upon making a success of what they supposed to be their own belongings. This is the history of all colony plans that are being tried in Europe and America, and I suggest that the plan be tried here, provided we can get the additional acreage of land to justify us in so doing. These houses can be built at a small cost, and could be built while building the wing to the female department of our present building, thereby enabling us to complete this building much more promptly and at a less cost. If this should be granted, there would be no necessity of adding at present the other wing to the male department. The Committee adjourned to meet in Raleigh at the Hospital, November 22, which they did, and formulated a report which will be presented to your body for your deliberation and action. I commend it to you as a plain statement of data, though approximate, but the best to be obtained, as worthy of adoption. I suggest you order its publication in the published report.

FINANCES.

        I respectfully call your attention to the attached report of the Steward. You will observe that the expenditures are in excess of receipts. This could not be avoided without detriment to the property and patients committed to our care. The repair account is unusually large; the cost of living high and uncertain; the water account, payable in money monthly from the maintenance fund; the imperative necessity of changing our system of lighting the premises and houses, using both gas and electricity at a cost of $243 per month, with an old, worn-out gas plant, making gas from rosin at a cost of $2.60 per barrel, and overtaxing a dynamo put in for 200 lights and made to carry 300; the condemning of the wiring by an expert inspector of the South Eastern Tariff Association compelled us to connect with the Standard Gas and Electric Company of Raleigh. This company supplies


Page 16

us with gas at a cost of $1.25 per thousand feet, and will cost $1,800 per annum. The cost of rewiring the house was estimated at $2,000. The cost of the dynamos to be run in duplicate would cost $6,300. This could not be obtained for the want of funds. The lights are brilliant and satisfactory both as to service and cost. The cost of connecting and purchasing lamps is $1,000.

        On July 15 Mr. W. R. Crawford, Jr., resigned as Steward, to accept a position as general agent of the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company. His long, efficient and faithful services have been appreciated by this and preceding administrations. He was succeeded by Mr. Hardesty, whose familiarity with the work has enabled us to run things on smoothly.

        The members of the Medical Staff are entitled to and deserve much praise for time and skillful energy given to the work.

        It is a matter of pleasure to recall the endorsement of our actions and instances of courtesy and kindness shown us by the members of the Board and the faithfulness and loyalty of the employees.

Respectfully submitted,

JAMES McKEE,
Superintendent.

ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT.

DR. JAMES McKEE, Superintendent,
State Hospital, Dix Hill.

        SIR:--I herewith present you the report of this department. It includes the care of the boilers, steam heating, laundry machinery, ice and refrigeration, lights and plumbing. I found three old, well-worn 60-horse-power boilers doing and had been doing the work for half again as much power as they should have been required to do; however, by close attention they were made to do the service required. If any accident had occurred through one of them there would have been a disturbance in the regular routine of service in the heating, laundry and light service. They are situated in an old, nearly dilapidated house, on the ground floor, under rooms intended to be occupied by servants and the laundry. A portion of the ground floor has been taken for an ice plant and cold storage, depriving the lower rooms of as much space as was necessary for their use. A measurement of the building showed there was 1,500,000 square feet of space to heat, that required 21,500 feet of radiating surface and that required 2,678 feet of boiler service. It takes a 150-horse-power boiler to furnish power to run the machinery of the Hospital safely. You will observe that the three 60-horse-power boilers have been overworked at an enormous cost of fuel. Two 150-horse-power boilers can with safety furnish 3,800 feet of heating surface. A new boiler, 150-horse-power, has been purchased and placed under a temporary house, properly connected by its breeching with the great stack. All the necessary pipes were attached at a cost of $2,356.60. We found it absolutely necessary to remove on account of corrosion and replace 3,880 feet of steam-pipes at a cost of $329.81, piping and valves at a cost of $396.20, aggregating a cost for boiler and piping purposes of $3,082.61.

LAUNDRY.

        The laundry, under the same roof as the boiler-house, should be in a separate building, and on the first floor, as there is danger of fire in all laundries where large heaters are used, and especially where insane people work. The laundry is too crowded and needs enlarging. The drying-room is not half large enough, for they cannot dry the clothes in wet weather. I have done a good deal of work in the laundry; have renewed shafting and boxes on two tubs, made a new top for one other, put on one new set of gear, a wheel on one other, renewed five small belts and one main driving belt. I recommend the erection of a two-story building, the second floor of which to be used as rooms for employees, as asked for two years ago. We need to expend $3,000 in the laundry.


Page 58

WATER SUPPLY.

        The water supply was condemned some time ago. We had to discontinue use of same and connect with the Wake Water Company. The Legislature appropriated $5,000 for the special purpose of furnishing water to the institution. We put in 2,800 feet of 8-inch cast-iron pipe, eight valves and a large water meter for furnishing the supply. Most all the pipes through the Hospital were old and rotten and could not stand the city water pressure. We had to renew over 3,000 feet of water pipes at a cost of $600, put in a good many new self-closing cocks, had to renew pipes in the bath-rooms, had to replace old, worn-out bath-tubs with new ones, had to put in new dish-sinks, had to replace old, worn-out wash-bowls with new ones. I have been continually employed in keeping up repairs of pipes through which the city water had to flow, as the old ones were so badly corroded that they had to be constantly watched and replaced.

LIGHTS.

        Neither the gas nor the electric plant is large enough to light the Hospital. Rosin gas is too expensive to use at a cost of $2.60 per barrel, as it takes one barrel of rosin and three-fourths of a cord of wood, and time for one man; the wear and tear of the works makes the cost of gas five dollars per night and the electric light three dollars per night. The electric light wiring is very old and the insulation rotten. All the wiring throughout the Hospital has been overloaded and is really unsafe, the building being wired for 200 lights, and 300 lights having been added to this. An inspector from the South-eastern Tariff Association condemned all the wiring. An inspection of the wiring was made at your request, and the estimate of the cost cannot be put down at less than $2,000; new engine and dynamo in duplicate, $6,300. My predecessor two years ago, as noted in his report, asked for an appropriation to renew the wiring and put in new electrical machinery. Acting under instructions from you, I superintended the connection made with the Standard Gas and Electric Company, and beg to report that $1,000 will cover the expense of piping and gas fixtures and meter for connection with the Hospital. We put in 2,500 feet of 4-inch cast-iron pipes from the Hospital to Saunders street to the connection with the gas company's main; 1,500 feet of new gas pipes had to be placed in the Hospital where there was no gas, at a cost of $150. The burners had to be changed and a good many gas fixtures put in; 1,400 feet of old cast-iron water pipes that had been used with the old water connection was taken up and used for part of the gas main. I feel persuaded that it will take $1,800 appropriation per annum to pay for the lights. In reply to your question, I will state that we can place eleven or twelve are lights on the outside of the building and barns and run them with the present engine and dynamo.


Page 59

ICE PLANT.

        The ice plant and cold storage is under the same roof as the boilers and laundry. Neither the ice plant nor the cold storage has ever been large enough for the Hospital's use, for want of space. It is necessary to increase the size of the ice plant and cold storage, and to do so it will be necessary to place them in a new house. That could be done under the suggested building for the boiler. The pipe coils are about rusted from long usage. The brine-tank is rusty and leaks very badly and cannot be run another season. We are barely making one-half enough ice for use in the Hospital. If this should be continued it will be necessary to have a 3,000-gallon brine-tank. The new cold storage was asked for in a previous report. The last estimated cost for ice plant and cold storage was $5,000. This present second-hand one was purchased for $3,500 six years ago.

ROOFS.

        A great deal of work has been done upon the roofing of the various houses for the Hospital. They have been watched constantly to prevent leaks. The gutters have been kept in repair, sometimes replacing sections of the gutters with new tin. There have been put up a good many new conductor pipes. The roof on the engineer's house leaks badly, and, notwithstanding the constant repair that has been done upon it, it still continues to leak. I respectfully ask that you place a new roof upon the building. The Hospital roof needs a coat of paint, and should be done next spring.

Respectfully submitted,

L. A. KEUSTER,
Engineer.

GARDENER'S DEPARTMENT.

DR. JAMES McKEE, Superintendent,
State Hospital, Dix Hill.

        DEAR SIR:--Herewith I submit the biennial report of the operations of the farm, garden and dairy. The farm and garden contain 175 acres. The acreage is entirely too small for the use of the institution. More land has been asked for repeatedly since my connection with the Hospital, and it is absolutely necessary to have land sufficient to make feed for the stock. This year the institution rented 80 acres of land at a cost of $300. The estimated products of this 80 acres is $1,237. We also had the benefit of a good dwelling-house, stables and some out-houses, which came in very conveniently, as we needed the room. We need, in addition to open land, some woodland, especially pine forests, so that we may get the benefit of the straw that falls from the trees to be used for storing the potatoes and bedding for the stock.

        We had an epidemic of cholera among the swine herd and lost almost the entire herd. The old swine pasture contains five acres and has been continually in use for fifty-four years, and the cause of the cholera can be attributed, I think, to the congested condition of the pasture. A wire fence around the north, east and south sides of the plantation would be of great benefit and would keep off loafers and thieves, by whom we are continually annoyed.

        Large columns at the main entrance, with iron gates, and a lodge cottage, would not only be very beneficial, but would add very much to the looks of the premises.

        The dairy department is deficient in its milk supply, the daily average being fifty-five gallons; and to supply the patients we should have one hundred gallons daily. The herd is being brought back to the standard gradually since we lost most of them by tuberculosis three years ago. The barns and out-houses are very much in need of paint. I respectfully suggest that comfortable rooms be provided for dairy and farm employees, as the ones they are in are very dilapidated.

Very respectfully,

JAMES ADAMS,
Gardener.

CARPENTER'S DEPARTMENT.

DR. JAMES MCKEE, Superintendent,
State Hospital, Dix Hill.

        DEAR SIR:--Since my appointment as carpenter I have been constantly employed in keeping the building in repair, which I found to be very much out of repair, something constantly having to be done. I have made coffins, repaired locks, clocks, tables and other furniture; also farm wagons, plows and other farming implements; have constructed a frame house to be used for boiler 30 by 60 feet, covering same with corrugated iron; have put a high fence around the poultry-yard, 50 by 125 by 12 feet high; put barbed-wire fence around cow pasture, and "Page" woven-wire fence around hog pasture; replaced an old, wornout, dilapidated porch in the rear end of the congregate dining-room; replaced old steps with new ones in front of female annex; placed metal ceiling in three bath-rooms and in three water-closets, and painted same; have kept the barns, carriage-house and stables up by repairing. In the male annex I have placed metal ceilings in three water-closets and one bath-room, and painted same, and in the bath-rooms of the eighth and ninth wards I have put down new concrete floors. I have had some of my help constantly employed in scraping and re-applying muresco to the walls in the wards and administration building, and have fitted up a room for the house-keeper over the kitchen, and made new wheel-barrows for use.

Very respectfully,

T. A. HOLLIDAY,
Carpenter.

Thimbles, etc., for engineering department 2.00
Painted spring-house roof 4.50
Painted gutters at tenth ward 3.00
Repaired tin roof, gutters, conductor pipe at gardener's cottage, Fuller place 12.00

        I have kept up all the tinware on wards, kitchen, cold storage, ice plant and dairy. When my attention is not needed on roofs and repairs I spend the time assisting the engineering and carpenter's departments.

REPAIRS NEEDED.

        Gutters are needed on the main building. The female annex should be painted at once. The roof of the main building, boiler-house, laundry, kitchen and barn also need painting. The valleys and porch roof at the Steward's cottage should be painted as soon as spring opens up. About 150 feet of 4-inch conductor pipe should go on the main building; 150 feet of 6-inch pipe for underground drainage should go in at the male annex to save the foundations of the building; 125 feet of tin gutter 28 inches wide should go in the porch at the male annex. One balcony floor should be tinned at the male annex. It is necessary that this should be done to preserve the roof and the buildings.

Very respectfully,

R. D. LITTLE,
Tinner and Assistant Carpenter.

LAUNDRY DEPARTMENT.

DR. JAMES MCKEE, Superintendent,
State Hospital, Dix Hill.

        SIR:--I herewith respectfully submit a report of the Laundry Department for the fiscal year ending November 30, 1903, and for the year ending 1904.

        Much of the work is done by the female patients, who, as a rule, improve very much in strength, though the work is not, of course, up to the standard of a first-class laundry.

        All goods turned out of the laundry are clean and reasonably nicely ironed by such help as is used. One has to be ever watchful, and I hope the work of the department has been done in a satisfactory manner. All of which is respectfully submitted.

        If you will allow me I will respectfully suggest that the laundry be enlarged, that we have an increase of two machines, washer and extractor, the room enlarged and the elevator remodeled, all of which will add considerably to the work in this department.

Respectfully submitted,

(MISS) N. K. BENSON,
Laundress.
