19 Of the fifteen applications acted upon adversely on the advice of the Home physician one applicant had a malignant affection of the eye; one had syphilis, three were in the last stages of tubercu. losis; two were deemed able to work; four showed symptoms of insanity and four were afflicted with locomotor ataxia. Objections were raised by the endorsing unions to the unfavorable action in the cases of the petitioners afflicted with locomotor ataxia. Your committee based its action on these cases upon the decision of the Toronto convention, which adopted the following, reported by the committee on Union Printers Home:

“Your committee on Union Printers Home, to whom was referred that portion of the president's address touching the Home, beg leave to recommend that the policy of the board of trustees as to the admission of applicants afflicted with locomotor ataxia, or any disease of a pronounced pro. gressive character, or any loathsome disease, be approved by this convention. The statistics of the Home show that its population has about doubled during the past ten years, and that at the present time neither the Home nor its revenues are large enough to accommodate all the applicants. There

fore, we believ that the board of trustees should continue to exclude those afflicted with diseases that require or are certain to require the entire service of a personal attendant, and endeavor to dispense the benefits of the Home for the greatest good to the greatest number, until such time as the craft sees fit to enlarge the accommodations or in. crease the revenues, or both.”

Conditions, as far as accommodations for such cases at the Home are concerned, remain unal. tered. It was thought the demands upon the institution would decrease with the inauguration of the old age pension, but such has not been the case. The capacity of the main building has been taxed throughout the year, and when a resident of this building vacated there was always another applicant to fill the vacancy. If we are to accept hopeless cases or those afflicted with progressive diseases like locomotor ataxia, additional funds and more accommodations must be provided for the care thereof.

On several occasions during the year members admitted to the Home arrived at the institution in a dying condition and death occurred within a few days or weeks. In each case the condition of the applicant had not been clearly shown by his peti. tion or by the report of the examining physician. Without doubt all of these unfortunate members would have lived longer by remaining at their own homes. More care should be exercised by local unions called upon to endorse applications for admission, for such incidents as are referred to herein are very liable to redound to the discredit of the Home.

Again, members have been sent to Colorado Springs by local unions before their applications


had been acted upon by the admission committee of the board of trustees, and have presented themselves at the Home expecting to be immediately admitted. The law requires all applications to be made on the regular form provided for that purpose and makes no provisions for emergency

No applicant can be admitted to the Home except on presentation of a certificate of admission signed by the secretary of the board. This fact should be forcibly brought to the attention of all subordinate unions. Respectfully submitted,

Thomas F. CROWLEY,
James M. LYNCH,
J. W. Hays.

A septic sewerage disposal system has been in. stalled for the purpose of taking care of the sew. age of the institution. The system consists of a walled underground reservoir, built of concrete. It is of correct scientific proportions and built so as to exclude light and air. The reservoir is so constructed that the crude sewage admitted is controlled and a very regular current and low velocity secured.

The sewage is entirely destroyed during the process of its passage through the reservoir. A chemical decomposition of the organic matter is created, a large portion passing off in the form of gases. The tank empties in a perfectly clear stream, free from all odor, into an open reservoir. The process is continuous and self-regulating, requiring no attendance. The waste water from the septic tank is used for irrigating purposes.

The septic tank has eliminated many disagreeable conditions that existed in connection with the previous arrangement for the disposition of the Home's sewage. The present system is absolutely sanitary. Being underground, unpleasant appear.

are eliminated and the pure condition in which the water passing through the sewer reaches the outlet admits of its free use.

The cost of installing the septic tank and make ing necessary sewer connections was $1,504.61.

The members of the board of trustees have been greatly handicapped at their annual meetings by the lack of proper facilities for the conduct of business. It has been customary for the board to convene in the room formerly known as the Childs parlor. This required new furnishings, and it was decided to rest it in a manner suitable for the trustees' needs, and let it be known as the Board of Trustees' room.

A parquet floor was laid and suitable furniture provided. The furniture is natural oak, with chairs upholstered in leather. While very plain, it is substantial and durable. A door plate read. ing “Board of Trustees" marks the entrance.

It will be a distinct advantage at the annual meetings to have a room suitably equipped and

The work on the library addition is not far enough advanced to merit a report, but it is progressing nicely. The excavation is completed and the foundation is being laid. We hope to have the building finished by the time of the annual board meeting. It is the intention to erect the addition only to the second floor at this time, but it will be built with the view of ultimately extending it the height of the present main structure. Architecturally, the addition conforms to the present structure.

The addition contemplates a library on the fiist floor. The basement will be utilized for larger and improved dining rooms and kitchens. It will make possible improved lavatory facilities, which are badly needed. Total expenditure to date is $1,525.15.


OPERATING ROOM. One of the rooms in the sanatorium has been furnished as an operating room. The equipment consists of an operating table, instrument table, cabinet, scales and chairs. Furniture and woodwork are finished in white enamel. The room was necessary for the administration of the Wright treat. ment for tuberculosis, to which reference is made in the report of the Home physician, and it is a valuable adjunct to the sanatorium. It is almost indispensable for the sanitary application of dressings, etc.

GROUND IMPROVEMENTS. The improvement of the north side of the Home grounds was reported last year. The plot of six acres which was seeded to grass is now a beautiful and well-grounded lawn. The Home's grounds are among the handsomest in this section of the country, and receive much favorable comment. Last year we were awarded first prize for the best grounds in the county by the El Paso County Horticultural Society. During the year additional trees have been planted at a cost of $38.75.

Several minor improvements were authorized by the board at its last meeting.

Additional room was needed in the male employes' apartments. This has been provided for by two division partitions.

The buildings have been thoroughly screened, which, it is hoped, will eliminate the annoyance caused by flies during the summer months.

The horse pasture, on the south side of the Home grounds, has been enclosed by a substantial wire fence. This was necessary in order to prevent the horses from entering the alfalfa fields, which adjoin the pasture.

A wagon road has been opened on the north side of the grounds and a gate, corresponding to those at the other entrances, provided.

The reservoir into which the sewer system empties has been enlarged, and, to avoid the possibility of accident, was enclosed with a substantial fence.

Following is a table of the permanent improvements, showing the cost of each:

MORTALITY RECORD. During the year one-half of the Catholic burial plot has been improved to correspond with the improvements made on the Protestant plot last year. The ground has been leveled, seeded to grass, and the headstones reset. The plot is enclosed with a coping of white stone. The steps leading to the entrance are inscribed “Union Printers Home" and the pillars on each side are marked I. T. U. Both the Catholic and Protestant burial plots present a highly creditable appearance, that indicative of the respect accorded the deceased members of our organization. The cost of coping and plot. ting the Catholic plot was $408.20.
